The startling frequency of mur-
dor, followed by suicide, in wliicli
soino lirutnl lovci' saciiticcs llic life
of it young girl before terminating
liis own useless existence, is well
worthy the attention of psychological investigators. The latest among
u number of similar sensations
within tho past two weeks is a case
in Pluinviile, Conn., in which George
Bradley; nged twenty-three, kills
his sweetheart, Lillie Potter, aged
seventeen, and shoots himself fatally.
It is evident that tho question for
consideration by prospective brides
is not "Will you love me when I'm
old f but "Do you love me enough
to refrain from shooting me down in
the street like a uud dog!"
The newspaper which is fond of
reminding us on ill proper occasions
that it is the pioneer journal of the
province, evidently intends that it
shall not be outdone in (shall we
say?) picturesque writing. It calls
upon its readers to subscribe liberally to a certain fund in order to
"maintaining the prestige of the militia, already so successfully inaugurated," This is fine; but we respectfully submit that our cotemporary, having said so much is morally
bound to go further and furnish us
with a description of the ceremonies
proper to the "inaugurating" of a
"prestige." We shall be conscious
of a distinct sense of incompleteness
until tho information is supplied.
The presidential election fight in
tho United States is getting hotter,
but so far appears to be free from
that personal abuse which degrades
political campaigns so commonly
now-adays. There is a good deal
of overhauling of records, of course,
but it is tho public, or semi-public,
acts and utterances of the candidates
that are canvassed. It seems to be
beyond question that the defeat of
the fisheries treaty was a party
move—the republicans using their
power they had in the senate to bar
their opponents from the credit of
settling a knotty point satisfactorily.
John Chinaman figures as a factor
in the fight. That is a matter of
course. An election in any degree
affecting this coast would not know
itself—we almost question if it
would ho legal—if it had not John
in it.
How is this for N. P., and all that
sort of thing:
Mary had a little lamb,
Its lleeco was white as snow,
Anil every year she sold the wool,
For ready cash, you know.
Then she wonld count the dollars o'er,
As children often do,
Then nut them In the savings bank
Where Interest would accrue.
Then Mary ralaod up other lambs,
Hut not to send to school.
For do not get Into your head
That Mary was a fool.
She'd heard the politicians talk        *''
Of syndicate and pool,
Till avarice Belied her very soul
And changed her Into wool.
Then Miry thought the matter o'er,
And foimed a plan ao nloe,
If other, bad no lamb, to shear
She'd get a better prloe.
Her undo had a blooded dog,
Protection was his name,
And he would rather worry lambs
Than any other game.
So Mary leased her Unclo Sam
To give the dog to her,
Till finally heilidooiisent
Toletiler have tlie cur.
And then o'er all tho neighboring hills
They scouted many a day.
Tilt all ihe lambs, except their own,
Were driven faraway.
And now the children of tbe poor,
Attend no Suuduy school,
llocaiiso they can't afford tbo clothes
Made up of Mary's wool.
But Mary rides In a barouche,
With diamonds in her hair,
And rumor says she soon will wed
A city millionaire.
Poor Nenfeld, one of the dozen
white prisoners in the hands of the
iMnhdi's successor, has at last been
hanged in earnest. Ho was a German house builder who was in the
service of tho Egyptian government
before tho rise of tlio Mahdist troubles. For some reason Khalifa Abdullah made Neufeld the object of
his particular spite. He alone of
the prisoners has been kept in
chains, nnd several times ho has
been suspended from the pillows
and cut down amid shouts of laugh
tor, just in lime to save his life.
At last Neufeld escaped, and bad
actually made his way about 100
milo3 cast of Khartoum on his j',ur
ney to Iho Coast, when he was
captured uud his sufXei'ings were'
ended on the gallows. If they sur-'.
vivo, tho other white prisoners of
tho Soudan will some day tell the
wonderful story of their hapless
lives nt Khartoum linco Gordon's
death. Though England, Gerniany,
Austria, and Italy nre represented
among these poor mon and women,
no ell'ort has yot been made by any
government to seouro their release.
It has been conjectured that the
intrepid Stanley, whose movements
aro yot enshrouded in mystory, was
niameuvoring to swoop down upon
Khartoum, at the head of n large
baud of native followers, surprise
tho new Mahdi, reloase his prisoners,
and avenge the death of the noble
Gordon.

finally it wai hinted, tint the retaliation act had been put in force by proclamation. Shaughnesiy, assistant general manager of the C.P.R., waa considerably lurpriaed and said: "Woll, it
won't hurt the Canadian Pacific much,
anyhow, hut it will be bad for the
Canada Southern, Grand Trunk and
Central Vermont. It will cripple the
Grand Trunk trade betwoon Montreal
and Chicago, but al far as I understand
the melange it will work much more
disastrously to American roads. The
fact is it leema to bo a strategic politi
cal movementof thepresident to put the
whole responsibility for tho recent
failure of the treaty negotiations upon
the Republican senate hy asking con'
greBstogivehim power to put forth

undoubtedly be passed by the Democratic house but would necessarily have
to be ratified by the senate, which will
bo obliged to stultify itself or be placed
in a tight fix."

The French are taking a leaf out
of the book of the American people
in  the  matter  of divorces.    The
statistics of the first three
operations of the amended divorce
law in France have just been published, and the information furnished ia very suggestive. The first
year 1,800 divorces were pronounced,
the second 4,000, and the third
4,500. The greater demand for
divorces came from women, in the
proportion of GO to 40 per cent. The
critical period of married life proved
to be the second ten years of its enjoyment. The mercantile classes
supply the greater number of unhappy marriages—that is, among
the well-to-do. They nre in the
proportion of 800 to 500 among professional men and men living on
their incomes. There is the largest
proportion of divorces in the wealthiest and busiest portions of France.
In the capital, in the case of 1,000
marriages, forty-seven couples wore
divorced. In the more rural districts married people are happier or
less venturesome. Taking the whole
of France, it was found that for
every 1,000 marriages there were
four divorces.
excrescences, under his directions
and warnings. He was a power.
He knew his power and loved it.
All men are not Matthew Arnolds, it
is said. True, but every man of
letters has some such power, some
such enjoyment, some such friends.
Every man of letters has a richer
knowledge of books, n deeper interest in humanity, a fuller consolation
in trouble, a more profound appreciation of the beautiful, than the
wealthiest millionaire."
On another page will be found
several interesting communications
from various parts of tho province—
one from our special travelling correspondent from Lulu Island, another
from Illicillewnet mining camp, and
a well written and newsy contribution  from   our   correspondent  at
Princeton and Granite Creek.   We
published the other day a eommuni
cation from Lillooet, which is the
first of a series from a mining expert, who is at present making a
tour of that section.   We expect to
publish an occasional letter from our
Granite   Creek correspondent, and
also from our special travelling correspondent and others throughout
the province, thus making The Columbian a medium for definite and
trustworthy provincial, as well as
local and foreign information.   Our
Granite Creek correspondent, it will
be observed, hints at an abuse among
the Indians, which needs correcting
by the proper authorities.   It is in
direct contravention of the laws of
the country for the noble red man to
obtain firewater, and we venture to
lay that it will be cheaper, as well
as better, in the long run tn enforce
these laws than to foot the bills resulting from the crime und demoralization among the Indians consequent upon their being supplied by
unscrupulous   scoundrels  with the
feud-breeding and death-dealing tangle-foot.   We would call the attention of the Dominion authorities to
the  remarks of our correspondent
about the mail service in tho Princeton and Granite   Creek  districts.
Some time ago we called attention
to thia matter, and recommended a
semi-monthly mail,  in summer at
least,   and a monthly mail in the
winter season, by way of Hope. Our
correspondent says a monthly service has keen promised, but thinks
that a semi-monthly service should
be  provided  during  the   summer
months.   According to the mining
notes given by our correspondent,
the outlook for an extensive development of that industry in the section! referred   to is very fair, and
reasonable facilities for communication, by mail at least, should be provided.
The Toronto Week soys: "So fur
as dollars and cents go, literature
does not pay. That is the rule, and
the exceptions are indeed few and
far between. It is just the same in
England as it is in Canada in this
respect. Canadians have been in
the habit of deploring not only the
dearth of Canadian literature, but
the fact that literature in Canada
pays so badly. It is the same in
every country. The only difference
il, that in other countriei a few men
have not only made a great name
but also a great fortune by their
literary efforts, but no Canadian in
Canada has yet done so. Yet dollars and cents are not everything,
and a man's success in life is not
reckoned by sensible people by his
bank account. The literary man

a constant source of pleasure and
profit; writing, itself, his very profession, il fascinating to him. One
hear, of successful lawyers who are
weary of law, of doctors who dislike the study of medicine, even of
clergymen who have begun to think
that they have chosen the wrong
calling, but what man of letters
would change hia profession! He

he ask. it for bread and it gives him

The friends of the international
copyright bill in Washington, says
au   American    exchange,   decided
that the wiser course is to defer final
action until Decomber, but Mr. Collins asked the house in vain to appoint a day for its discussion, and it
must   take  its chance.   Tlie postponement was favored both by members of congress und unofliciul advocates of the measure.   The reason is
that the passage of the Mills bill has
left the house virtually without a
quorum, and that the indifference of
a late session and the apprehension
of taking action during a presidential  campaign   upon  a somewhat
noted question   might imperil  the
bill  if   it   were pushed to a vote I
This is a disappointment, but there
is the consolation that the project
will not be harmed by further consideration.   The more the subject is
pondered the stronger the movement
becomes, and after the election there
will be greater probability of a disposition of the bill upon its uinritf.
It has already passed the senate, and
the apparent favor with which it is
regarded by leaders of both sides in
the house encourages the expectation
of success.   The proposed measure,
it is stated, is a compromise among
all interests—a result which is now
reached for the first time.   Concessions have beon   made to the mechanical interests involved, without
which the prospects of a settlement
would have been seriously impaired,
But the desire and the ability to
agree are the earnest of a common
feeling which is essential to success.
Meanwhile a very interesting and
significant incident was the late banquet in London in honor of Ameri-
cen authors.   It is a pleasant sign
of the existing good feeling in the
literary craft that while American
authors are striving to secure a just
recognition of the rights of English
authors   iu   this  country, English
authors, in turn, should he evincing
in England their cordial regard for
their American brethren.   One of
the most famous of these, Mr. Lowell, was the guest of honor, and the
warmth of his   reception was not
only a tribute to the eminent man of
letters, but to the American citizen
who hai done so much, both as an
author and an official representative,
to promote a common good feeling
between the countries.   Mr. Bryce
presided, the historian of the Holy
Roman Empire and late Under Foreign   Secretary,   an   accomplished
scholar and man of affairs, who has
been much in this country, and has
studied American institutions with
cnre and sympathy and admiration.
Mr. Lowell said he looked back upon
nothing in his life with more satisfaction than upon the fact that he
had been able in some degiee to contribute  to the  international good
feeling    He spoke with authority
and accuracy in saying that American author, were willing to accept
any bill recognizing the principle of
international   copyright,   and confessed his impatience with the imputation that  popular government
tends to produce a lower standard of
morality than exists elsewhere.   He
thought the root of the trouble lay
in a certain dullness in our common
ancestors in distinguishing between
literary and other work.

Nelll. Palmer wis lying oh Hie loung.
In herprett*.bedroom, crying nnd looking very unhappy. And; ct she had been
m irried only six mouths, and to such a
"nice, handsome man," aa all the young
Indies declared, that sin ly she ought to
have been happy with him.
And so she had been until, to tell the
truth, Mr, Bob Palmer, forKettiiig, |or
seeming to forget, that he .was a married
man, had recently taken to. flirting with
those Very younn; ladles, at all the parties
lu Hlddleton, leaving hii wife to take
care of herself.
Sorely it was enough to make any six-
months' wife cry, especially one so lenll-
tive aa Nellie.
Not that Mr. Robert Palmer loved his
little wife a bit less thin on tho day of
liia marriage, neither that Nellie suspected him of it, or for a momentdoubted
lila morals any more than she did his constancy. But Mr. Palmer was u gay young
man, and loved to amuse himself and to
he amused.
He liked the loclety of pretty and lively
women, both married .and single; and, in
s word, he liked to flirt and saw no harm
in It. So, while he bung over the young
ladies' chairs, laughing and puylng gay
compliments, his wife wonld be looking
over a photograph album, or conversing
solemnly with some old gentleman, or noticing Homo ahy ftnd awkwardchlld while
uretendlng to he unconscious of hor hue-
band's proceedings.  .
Not that alio was compelled to enjoy
herself in thla eotemn way, she usually io
bright and pretty nud agreeable, but ah.
had no heart for anything else now. Of
lit. all her liveliness and chattiness hid
left her, and she answered absently and
smiled listlessly, and If compelled to
dance or sing, dldso out of timo and out
of tune to her husband's grout vexation.
Itls thus thatnianyaynntigwife settles dowu into a dull nnd faded old woman, while hor husband grows handsomer and heartier, end wonders what on
earth could have changed her,
"Hnllol boon crying again, I declare!"
exclaimed Mr,, Boh. Palmer, .suddenly
ceasing his little whistle, as he entered
the room, on returning from his office.
"What'stliomatterli' w.Nellie?. Canary
refused to sing, or Madame Ylgllni not
put flowers enough lu your bonnetP"
"Oh, Bob! how citii you?" sobbed Nellie, beginning nfresli.
"Look here, Elleu," snld her husband,
sitting down on tho lounge, nud speaking
more seriously; "I don't like this nt all.
I never coine home that your eyes are not
red anil swollen with crying. What have
you to cry about, I should like to know?
It's an insult to meto goeiilveUingubout
tb. house lu thla fashion, and moping
away in corners, looking sullen and miserable, as you did Inst night at Macklln's.
Why, people will think ine a perfect domestic tyrant!"
"Ah, Bob, don't speak sol I can't help
tt, indeed, I do feci io miserable. You
make mo so, Bob,"        ,
"II Well, that ia rioh! Perhapi you
'will be good enough to lot me know of
what enormity I've boon guilty, that has
turned you into a modern Niobe?"
"Nothing really wrong, denr; but, oh!
If you knew how much a wife thinks of
her husband's love, mill—"
Here poor Nellie broke down again.
Mr. Palmer's eyes opened very wide.
k "Whew!" whistled he;   "if this isn't
- really absurd.  So, she's jealous!"
H'Indeed, no, deal Bob!  BuMbut—"—
A( could hardly speak for the choking in
7 throat—"you can't uuderstand the
'en woman takes in having her hus
I treat her with affection and respect
8, .'ore every one, or how it humbles and
■ urtifiea her to be uei<leoted.by him, aud
, lave other women consider themselves
/her rivals—like Isabel Baden,"
Mr. Bob Palmer laughed outright, and
then he grew angry.
"You're nu absurd little fool, Nellie,"
he laid. "As if Isabel Baden were anything to me beyond a pleasant and agreeable young woman to amuse one's wit
with at a party.  Nonsense!"
"She don't think so," said Nellie; "and
,—and the others don't think so. They all
think you are getting tired of your wife,
and Isabel flatters herself that she has
out me out, and Is trying to lit people
se.lt."
"Fiddlesticks!" said Bob, riling Impatiently from the lounge. "I'm astonished at you, Nellie, and had really given
you credit for more sense ai well aa temper," he,added severely. "I wish you'd
amuse yourself in society, as I do, In-
fd of moping about In thla fashion,
i can't expect to have me tied to your
in string!; and I'd much rather see
you flirting a little yourself than skulking away tn holes and corners, like a
spider, watching your butter'- .f. hus-
band to M. it you can detect nun In do-
Ing wrong. Yon make mequlteashamed
■efyou.l declare.11
Mr. Palmer took his hat and walked
out of the room, with au air of mingled
dignity and Injured iunooenoe. Hit wife
sat up, wiped away hir tsar, and turned
awhile, with eyea flashing and.cheek!
flushed with wounded and Indignant
feeling,
"Yes," she said to herself, "since he
hoi requeited tt, I will amuse myielf 'as
hidoei/andaeehowbelikeiltl Ashamed
of mc, Is he? And he did not use to be io
when I was gay and happy. Oh, Bob, If
you only kum, how I loved you!"
And one. more, despite her resolutely
closing her eyea.nd pressing her flagon
upon them, the tears would come.
There wai to be tlmt very evening, a
party at Col. Johnstou's, and Nellie took
particular palm lu dressing herself for It.
She had been of lato rather carelcuon
this poiut, and .was now rewarded for her
extra care by her husband's glance of approval and Itls remark that the; 'ink silk
was becoming to her.. Iu consequence
hor eyes and oheeki were brighter, and
her spirits more buoyant, as she entered
Mrs. Johnson's crowded drawing rooms*
.Scarcely had they paid their respects to
tho 'hostess, when Mr. Palmer nccoited,
or rather was accosted, by Miss Baden, a
brilliant, confident girl, who. tried to.n-
. snaro hint'before hii marriage; and, at
iho innte moment,n gentleman addressed
ilr*. Palmer.
Site answered mechanically, unable to
withdraw her attention fiom her bus-
h:md and his companion, until seeing
-omethlug In Mils Baden's glanc. at hor-
x\t which she did uot like, her pride
. giiln awoke, and she turned, as with a
> idiicu determination, to the gentleman
' nt her eitle,
Hu was n recent comer to the town,
very pleasant and hiindeomo, aud Nclll.
Palmer foithwitli begun to try and make
herself agreeable to hlni. Ho looked so
pleased, nnd was himself so agreeable,
that it soon cost tier no effort to converse;
.nd then hcr..qli) ijne'v spirits returned;
and, to uor surprise, ihe found that ihl
was enjoying herself.
Her huiband didn't much notloo this,
opt Mlai Bsdcq did; nnd her flirtation
with Mr. Palmer lost much of Its charm,
now that his wile did not appear mortified aud jealous, and that people couldn't
see thnt she was bj.
^Wherefore Mill Baden grew Indlffer-
-SJM3
thought) all
Bias
ont, nnd Mr". Palmer bethought1 Himself
lo look after hii wife. Not finding her
l^iikin;;fovei'.tlie pantograph albums, nor
talking to deaf old Mr. Brown, neither in
any uf thu "holes and corners'' which she
was wont of late to frequent, be became
rather pitmen)
"She's got In the dumps nc-nin, I suppose," was his thought, "and is trying to
disguise it under the pretense of being
111. Daro say I shall find her crying or
fainting away in tho conservatory, with
fans and smelling bottles round her, or
perhaps she's gone home."
At that instant n little laugh at his elbow startled him, nnd turning, hu saw
Nellie bright and flushed, talking to a
very handsome man. He smiled nnd
whispered, "Enjoying yourself, Nell?"
"Oh, yes, dear, dollghtfuilyl Don't
trouble yourself o'.iouti me, pray."
He passed on, but didn't go far, and aa
he stood, whispering soft nothings to
sentimental Kate .Marshall, his eyea occasionally wondered to his wife. How
pretty she was looking nml howgnyihe
was, and how coquettislily sho was exchanging light repartee with t h.it. flirting
fellow, Tom Harrison. Anil nil tho time
the handsome stranger never left her
aide. It wai perfectly evident that he
admired her.
"If she wen not a married woman he
would certainly fall In love with her, she,
my wife;" and he felt a little resenful of
the admiration.
Nellie Palmer had never sung more
sweetly or danced more gracefully than
upon thi. eventna:.
"Don'tyou think, Nell, you've danced
enough for one night?" said her husband,
toward the close of tho evening; "for a
married woman,"he added.
"Perhapi so," sho answered, cheerfully; "but I've enjoyed myself so much!
Really, I almost forgot, I was a married
woman, and felt like u girl ngain."
"Aud behaved like one,"lie said,rather
coolly. "Who is Hint fellow that has
boon in.attendance upon you nil tho evening?" he iuqiilrcd,ns they walked downstairs.
" That remarkably handsome man,
with the cxprcesive dark eyes, do you
mean?"
"I never noticed his eyos or tlmt he was
at all handsome," ho answered, stiffly.
"Oh, I thought you meant Captain
Lovell of the artillery. Ah, here ho Ib—
just one moment, dear, I quite forgot—"
And Nellie snokt n few words to the
captain In passing, of which her husbuud
could distinguish only something about
"that book."
"Upon my word," he said, sarcastically,
•'you appear very intimate already."
"Because, love, we've discovered that
we're congenial spirits. We like the
same things, books, music, scenery: indeed, everything, nnd have the same
opinions on most subjects. You know
how pleasant it is to meet with one who
can comprehend you, uot your outer self
merely, but with a sort of soul sympathy." _
"Soul fiddlesticks'."     '*"*'       ■      i$
"Vim never did have much sentiment,
Bob," sighed Nellie, in nn injured tone,
"Sentiment lie hanged! Come, Nellie,
be quick witli your wrappings. It hoi
been a stupid evening,audi shall be glad
to get home and to bed."
When Robert Palmer came home next
day, he found his wife, not crying, as before, in'her bedroom, but in the parlor,
practicing n new song,
"Captain Lovell called this morning,"
she said, "aud 1 have promised to sing
this for him at Mrs. Campbell's,"
At Mrs. Campbell's, Captain Lovell
was again iu uUcuilnuco upon pretty Mrs,
Palmer; and thou other gentlemen discovered hor attractions, her piquancy,
andcoquettishness,andflirtahtoiicss;and
eo, in a very few weeks, Mrs. Palmer was
a belle.
It was Captain Lovell who appeared
chiefly to occupy her thoughts, as well an
ii good part of her time. She sung and
danced with him; she read the booki he
sent; and so frequent were his visits, so
constant his attentions, that at lust Mr.
Robert Palmer's wrath bunt forth.
"Ellen," he laid, as' he ono day closed
tho door on the departing captain, "I
really cannot permit this to go ou any
longer.' Your conduct to me I. really
most unexpected—most astounding. You
are by far too Intimate with this fellow,
Lovell. Ho Is constantly in my home,
nnd last evening he icarcely left you,
sid", while you stood, for two hours, tbe
coutro of a group of chattering, grinning
popinjays, like himself."
"Why, Bob, you yourself blamed me
for playing wall-flower and 'spider,' and
said you were ashamed of me."
"I am much mors ashamed of' you
now," he retorted severely.
"Now, dear, that Is quite unreasonable
of you. Didn't you tell me that I would
please you by enjoying myself and flirting
a little? You know you did," added
Nellie, reproachfully; "and now that I
am obeying yon, you git Jealous."
"Jealous? not I! But I am offonded
aud Insulted—yes, aud disgusted as well.
If only you could hear the remarksiibout
yourself nnd that Lovell—"
"Similar to those that I heard In regard
to Miss Baden, I presume?" said his
wife.
"What Is Miss Baden to mc?" he de*
luauded, angrily.
"Aud what is Captain Lovell to me?"
"You encourage him, madam. You
flirt with him."
"Aj) you do with Isabel Baden."
"A man maydowhat Is not permissible
iuu woman."
"Ah, that is it!" said Nellie, with hoi
old sigh. "You men may neglect a wife—
may wear out hor heart and life with nu.
guisli—may exposo her to the pity ol
rldluiilo of her acquaintance uysbowiii:,
devotion to another; and ihe, poor slave,
must not presume to trrm.as may even
the trampled worm, but must boar all i.i
meek silence, never even lmplorlir;
mercy, lest alio should offeui] her Ion!.
But I have had enough of thil, Bob, und
now as yon do to me I will do to you. If
yon go on flirting, so will I. I know you
don't car. a bit mora for Isabel Haiku
than I do for Captain Lovell; but I will
uot be neglected and humbled luthoslght
of th. wholo world. I am not a slave,
but, * wife, nnd demand th. honor due to
inel"
Her mood was a new one to her husband. She sat erect and proud, looking
him steadily In th. face, with bright,
cloar eyes, In whoso depths lie could still
rend great tenderness; and ho had lit once
comprehended the whole matter.

The famous Menzies case is still sub

The fire brigade turned out last
night and gave Columbia street a good
watering. This practice should be
kept up three times a week while the
dry weather lasts.
A wagon broke down this morning
on Colombia street near the penitentiary grounds. Three young men were
in it at the time and narrowly escaped
being seriously hurt.
Visitor* complain that our city is not
kept just as clean as it might be in
every respect. A cursory investigation
of the Chinese quarters will convince
anyone, however obtuse, of this fact.
The test medical authorities acknowledge tho value of Ayer's Pills, and prescribe them with tbe utmost confidence,
as the most effectual remedy for diseases
caused by derangements of the stomach,
liver and bowels.
Those wishing to communicate with
Dr. Loftus R. Mclnnes, conveniently,

readiness to-morrow evening and Mr,
Leamy expects to havo 200 men nt

Tbe police have not been able to
Mb any trace of Olson who escaped
•rom tbe lookup yesterday. It is likely Mr. Olsenhas taken the Somiah
moo trail and that he is lost to ub forever. Outside of police circles he will
not be missed and the city generally
is well rid of soch an unsavory character.
Victoria is having a wedding epidemic. Wednesday evening, at tin
Pandora street Methodist church ii
that city, Mr. Frederick Berryman and
Miss Maria Shakespeare, only daughter
of Mr. N. Shakespeare, postmaster and
ex-M. P., were united in marriage. The
affair wu quite brilliant. Another
wedding took place the same evening,
and more are to follow.
Another batch of calves were brought
down on the str. Irving yesterday and
allowed to remain in the corral until
this titernoon. i Their cries, which
were piteous and distressing, were kept
op all night and residents of Front

sleep. It is too baa that some action
is not taken to put a stop to this cruel
practice. We nave called attention to
this nutter on several occasions bat
ipparently without effect.

to a dinner at the Holbrook House.
A very fine spread bad been prepared
which not only did credit to the cui-
sino of the hosteliy but nlso to tho

was struck on tho head with a club by
Capt. Kavary, of the steamer Muriel,
is not expected to recover, and his
family have been sent for. Tho in*
jured man is nt Vancouver, where
Capt. Savary was allowed out on $5,000
bail. Tho affair occurred while the
steamer was on route from tho north.
Kennedy, who was engineer, desired
to repair the engine, and endoavored
to stop it without Capt. Savary's permission, the lattor being asleep. When
the engine stopped tho captain awoke,
aud seeing -that the Bteamer was in a
strong current, seized u piece of wood
nnd struck the engineer over the head,
fcllMig hiin. At tlio time of his assailant's roiniiiiil at Vancouver, tho injur*
ed man whb iu a critical condition and
tlio physicians now state lie cannot recover. Mr. Kennedy is a well known
pioneer of Victoria and has been engineer on several steamers, aud was
formerly iu charge of the engine In
this oflico. It is hoped that he may
pull through, for, in the event of a
fatal result, Cnpt, Savary would have
n serious chnrgo to answor.—-Colonist.
An Opium lleale**, In Trouble.
Tho police have boon trying for
some timo past, to discover the Chinese
who supply the Indians with opium,
but did not meet with success till yesterday. On Wednesday night a Yale
Indian, named .lohony, was brought to
the lockup in a drunken condition,
and on undergoing the usual search a
package of opium was found on his
person. When ho was sufficiently
sober tho police asked Johnny how he
came to be in possession of the drug,
Johnny said he got it from a Chinaman
nt Sapperton, where any amount could
bo obtained. Resolving to catch the
wily celestial, the police gnve the Indian a marked 50 cent piece and told
him to get two bits worth of the stuff.
Johnny went down nnd got the opium
and 25 cents change. A warrant was
then sworn out sgninsb Ah Sam, nnd
he was arrested. When searched the
marked coin was found in his pocket.
The case came before thu police court
to-day, and lie was remanded till
to-morrow to allow the defence time to
prepare the ease. It is to be hoped
the offender will receive a lesson that
will have a good effect on the many
who now deal in the poisonous drug.

IMclllewncI Notts.
A correspondent, Mr Basil D, Rori-
sou, sends us tho following interesting
milling notes.
Illicillewaet for a new camp shows
up remarkably well. Tho mineral on
the avenge is high grade, galena, gray
copper, carbonates, and other silver
bearing ores. The camp has not, however, been developed to any extent as
yet, with the exception of the Lanark,
an extension of the Maple Leaf, Tbe
Lanark is owned by the Selkirk Mining
Co. Tlio company are shipping ore
to San Francisco. They have about 25
men employed in and about the mine;
the ore is taken down from the mine
by pack train, some 30 animals being
used, to the crusher, through whioh it
is run previous to shipment. The
Lanark at a depth of about 100 feet
shows a body of mineral about 30 feet
in width Tho Maple Loaf shows up a
largo body of mineral on tlio surface,
When developed it will prove a bonanza. It is owned by A. McKinnon,
of this place.
The Silver Tip is a tine prospect
The owners are running a tunnel to
tap the lead at a depth uf 30 ft., where
they no doubt will strike a large body
of mineral. It is owned by Messrs.
McQilvary & Moody.
There are other claims in the vicinity
of Illicillewaet that if worked would
show up equally as well as those mentioned above. Want of capital, however, seems to prevent their development at present. If capitalists would
invest and develop mining property
here, it requires no stretch of imagination to foresee tint lllictllewaet would
become within a comparatively short
period one of the largest mining camps
on the Pacific coast.
On the north fork of the Illicillewaet work is iu progress in development of a mining property known as
the Gumbo, which is a large fissure
vein. There were two levels run in
on the lend last summer, which exposed large quantities of rich mineral.
This spring another level, 300 feet
lower down the mountain,. was driven
in, and shows a large body of fine ore,
which runs high in silver. It is
owned by Messrs. Kennedy, Woods
& Corbett.
There has been n largo body of ore
discovered on Fish Creek, at tho head
of Flat Creek, It shows a solid vein
of mineral twelve feet wide. It was
discovered by Messrs. Bean und partners, who have two locations. It is
distant from Illicillewaet about 8 miles.
Development of these claims will assuredly cause Illicillewaet to become one
of the busiest mining centres of thn
coast.

Lulu Island, Aug. 22.—This island,
with tho adjacent Sea Island, constitutes tbe larger portion of the delta uf
the Fraser and comprises the Richmond municipality. Lulu Island,
which is bounded by tho north nnd
south arms of tho river, aa well as
by iho gulf, and comos to
nearly a point just below Westminster,
has an extreme length of about 13
miles and an average width of from 3
to 6. Sea Island, separated from Lulu
by a cut of tlie river, is about 3h by 2
miles. The mil on both islands "is of
thu richest alluvial character. Considerable dyking has been dune, and some
of the finest farms imaginable aro to be
seen here.
JSuterpriae. both public and private,
seems in this place to be the order of
the day. Tho building of roads
throughout the island, and a bridge
across the north arm of iho Fraser
river, is just now, occupying public attention; tbo debentures nre now upon
the market, and are, I believe, claimed
by an eager purchaser, while the council aro trying to negotiate with an eastern company for better terms. Both
roads and bridge are acknowledged by
all to mean great deal for tho future
prosperity of tho islands, as they open
a route by land to Vancouver and a
market. Would not a road from North
Arm to Westminster mean something
for that placo ?
The soil here is very rich, and well
adapted to agriculture, und gives a
greater increase than any I have yet
met with, except in the valleys of
Mexico. An idea of its productive
nature may be gained from the following: In Ontario tho average yield pur
acre, is, wheat, 20 to 30 bushel.',; oats,
30 to 50 bushels; buy, H tons. In
Minnesota the yield averages, wheat
18 to 25 bushels; oats, 30 to 50 bushels; hay, H tons per acre. In Kalians
wheat averages 25 to 30 bushels per
aero. In Manitoba nnd Northwest,
wheat, 35 to 45 bushels; oats, 50 to (10
bushels; hay, 2 Ions per acre. In
Fraser river delta tho yield discounts
all these vory largely. Wheat, 00 to
70 bushels; oats, 70 to 80 bushels; hay,
2.\ to 3i tons per acre. While Mr.
John Brock, on Sen Island, grew on
4i acres 400 bushels of fall wheat, and
numerous other instances of almost incredible yield were brought to my
notice. While looking at Mr. H. McDonald's turnips, I myself measured
several that were 30 inches in circumference, aud one 31j. Competent
judges say that he will havo 75 tons
from the plot of 1] acres.
About one-fifth of the land on tho
island is at present under cultivation,
and if the remaining four-fifths proves
as productive there is still room for a
largo numbor who follow that branch
of industry,
Tho Methodists are stirring them-
solves to build a parsonage, and if subscriptions continue to come in at the
present rate the Rev. J. S. Thompson
will soon be Bitting beside a fireside of
his own.
The salmon catch is now over and
has been so small for the past week
that the Siwashes nro lu despair on the
commissary question.
Tho Mainland Co's ground, at the June*
tion of Granite Creek and the Tulamcen
River, has been idle for the most part of
this season, some difficulty between the
the company and the Chinamen who were
working the claim on a percentage appears to be tho trouble.
.Reports from up the Tulaween, including Slate and Boulder Creeks, are also
of a favorable character, a considerable
number of miners being at work on those
streams this season,   i
Considerable prospecting is going on
in different directions, and a rich strike
may be made any time, as the country
for a great distance around is known to
be rich in mineral.

Princeton and Granite Creek.
(From Oin- Own dorrespoudonti)
Princeton, Aug. 15.—Things in and
about Princeton aud Granite Creek havo
been rather quiet lately. Considerable
excitement was created here some two or
three weeks ago by the discovery of a
large vein of rich looking mineral by Mr,
J. Jainieson aud party. Locations covering a little over a mile of the lead were
taken almost immediately and samples of
the mineral forwarded for assay. Until
the assaycr U heard from nothing will be
done, but should tbe result be favorable
thero is not the least doubt but what
lively times arc in store for this section,
aa the vein in large and tbe location easy
of access.
Mr. .T. K. Allison, of Princeton, who
was taken ill with a severe attack of iu-
Humiliation n few days after the death of
tho lute J. C. HaynoB, has recovered and
is about as usual again.
A party of American sportsmen, under
the guidance of Mr. Sbuttleworth of
Hope, passed through here a few days
ago for the Anlmola mountains, In quest
of "big-horn," big game and a big time
generally.
Almost every day during this season
of the year may he uict tbe Siwash pack
train, loaded with the various commodities that go to muko life happy and pur-
hch thin iu tills particnlarpartof the "sea
of mountain?." It is passing strange
how the red man likes to imitate Ins
pule face brother, aud ho therefore manages to have, very often at least, u little
tiro-water along wherewith to regale
hiuiHolf when camp in reached Utter a
bard day's drive; sometimes be gets
arailild more "juice" than be can handle,
and then the juice in very liable to tako
the "big Injun" out to hunt scalps; this
has happened as many as "several times'^
—along the trail. Anyhow and always!
the siwash is a study and the siwash
pack train, of which he is tho proprietor,
a wonder in itself. y\\e siwash pack
train here corresponds to tbo locomotive
and freight train of more advanced civilization.
We havo a grievance here, a geuuino
one at that; it is tho absolute! want of
mail communication to which I refer.
When it is stated that as much as three
months often elapses between the date of
mailing a letter in Now Westminster and
its arrival here, a distance of about ono
hundred and fifty miles, it must be ap*
parent to all that we havo reason to complain. However, the P. O. authorities
nave promised that Princeton shall have
a P. O., with a monthly mail service.
This ia a step in the right direction, We
would tie pleased, however, if the postal
authorities would take another stride
forward and make the service semimonthly, at least during tha summer
months.
Granite Creek still continues to turn
out fairly woll. The Oladstono, located
about one and a-balf miles above town,
nnd under the management of the well*
known Mr. p. Syuon, still sustains its
reputation as tho best paying property
in this section. Reports from the other
claims on Granlto Creek are satisfactory,
good returns in all cases being secured.
