NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Indian troubles are the order of
the day in the "boidor states," Has
the cuhli'iuic nnj lliinj,' to do with
the Presidential election, or is it
merely a coincidence 1 There must
be something very fur wrong in the
Indian agency system, and tho
worst feature of the whole bad business is, that it seems impossible to
tret down to the bottom of the matter, and bring the really guilty parties to book. It is so much easier
to!shoot*)»nth."hoitil-l!"
pfip says:—"A young . lady ol
Chatham Out., has just distinguished herself by rifosinjj the hand and
heart of a Russian count, who fell
in love with her in Europe and
came all the way across the ocean
to secure her. This shows that the
heads of young Canadian ladies are
level. They count the coat, and.,
generally speaking, a count is of no
'oount when a good husband is
wanted." American young ladies,
from all a'-counts, do a good deal of
figuring on thii same problem.
With a1 different result, however.
They countenance the stuff that has
the guinea stamp on it every time,
in spite of Burns.
11 An exchange says:—There is a
good deal in a name, if it is longer
than there is any necessity for, and
West Winchester finds thii so.'
The building of the 0. P. R. ihort
lino through from Smith's Falls to
Montreal is booming this place with
others on the line thereabouts, And
the increase of business has brought
increase of correspondence. Letters
go astray and the postal authorities
mix up tho name, with New , West
minster; British Columbia, and mail
matter which gets as far out of line
aa that incommodes the receiver and
sender considerably. By dropping
"West" out of its name, Winchester
will find itself up to the requirements of a practical and swiftly-
moving ago. ,
Tho telegrams have almost daily
notes of progress in the Parnell-
l'imes fight. Now that the forces on
each side are getting fairly into battle array, the affair is growing in
that kind of interest which we all
fcol in a death grapple. The tories
aro raising a fund to help the Times
in its effort to discredit and ruin
the Irish leader, and bit friends are
not slow to do their part jn providing the sinewiof, wavrifor triide
fence. Mrs, Parnell (outspoken
and fearless, womanlike) calls upon
her friends to help in defeating the
tory conspiracy against her son,
while the Timet and its friends challenge Pamell'i wethods, actions and
motives. Home Rule papers sniwer
and the Ereeman't Journal baoks
it. opinion with a lubsoription of
£500 to the defence fund, .nd the
wires say that Archbiobop Walsh
has given a similar sum. Thus the
skirmishing grow, hotter and hotter.
Roman captains, latin knlihia fast down
' to earth they spring
And hand to4iand they if bt on foot
iimiind the "uncrowned klm."
The inan who robs the farmer
turns up in all sorts of places, and
under all sorts of aspects. Here is
an account of some little jokers who
flourish in Dakota:—Loan companies in Dakota have learned the art
of lending money advantageously.
They may not bo smarter than other
loan companies in other territories
•ud states; but they are . imnrt
enough and have reduced their business to a line art. This ii an illus-
of thii way a loan is made to a set
tier. The settler applies for ami receives $:)U0 for five years, but the
mortgage he gives reads S}402..W.
The company add to the sum actually received : (l)Bonna, S per cent
of $300 for five years, 875; (2) 5
per cent of $375, local agent's coin-
mission, $17.1)0, which the loan
company divide with the agent; (.1)
examination fee, $5; (I) recording
deed and abstract, $5. Total as
stated, $402.50. The interest ou
this accumulation is made 7 per
cent. The company then sells this
mortgage in tile East at a premium
of 6 per cent, making an additional
profit of $20.12. The company
have advanced $300 to borrower
and "for commissions and expenses
about $10.37 The net profit is,
therefore, $106.28. The company
makes a loan of $300 and in a fort-
nis;lit sells it, making a clear profit
of $106.25. The settler and tha
Eastern capitalist are the Iambi in
this transaction. If they could get
neuter each other the middleman
would not make such a profit. Thil
may Im one of the incident! of anew
country, but It must icon pass away
in Dakota, if the pioneer producer
is to get on his feet,

London, Aug. 20 Tbe British and
continental press aro alike disputed to
treat the bombastic speoclj of the (Jer-
man emperor at Frankfort on the Oder
aa a post-prandial address of the
onitum/tilmni order,' and are inclined
to tfalitae tbst if it meant anything at
all it merely iadicated that the usual
lee-saw relations between Germany,
Russia and France had undergone no
change'despite the recent meetings of
the two emperors. For tlie present,
perhaps, there may be no open manifestation of the feeling of insecurity
which prevails, but it is freely predicted that when Ihe existing'relatioua
which have caused the Balkan: trouble
and Italy's action regarding Maasovah
becomes slackened, the unsatisfactory
state of the relations of Germany to
the northern empire and tho southern
republic will make themselves alarm.

Taoday Evealss. lag. •■• >**"•
It will be remembered that aomo
time ago we gave »n editorial resume
of thf'"bucket -shop" ;gamVling;
kaisb^Mi, niore particrtarly as reiat--
ing to eastern Canada, and especially
in the matter of the Hanraban
bucket shopestablishmentof Toronto.
It was stated in the article referred
to •that 'Ore ■ above establishment
had been -aided by the police and
the operators and some of the
patrons jugged, and the fixtures, etc.,
found on the: premises seized and
confiscated. It was also stated that
I certain legal gentlemen retained by
the gamblers were confident of being
able to finda loophole in the special
act pnssod last session dealing with
< such eas-s largi' enough to admit of
their client, evading tile law, and
continuing their noxious practices in
spite of it. Wo are glad to be able
to publish the following, from the
Montreal Witness of last. Wednesday, as an idstanc of law, order, and
morality triumphing over organized
violators of statutes human and divine:'' '"The bucket shop gamblers
convicted in Toronto under the Abbott Act of having gambled in Han-
rahan's branch establishment at that
place have thrown up the sponge,
paid their fine,, and will not appeal
from the. judgment of the, police
magistrate. . Hanrahan's agent, or
"correspondent," as he calls him
self, still talks of appealing. The
patent-new method of evading the
law, guaranteed by bucket shop lawyers whose confidence in their own
power to drive a coach and pair
through the Abbott Act was prob.
ubly the outcome of youthful inexperience, has not proved a success so
far. Bucket shop gambling is not
merely Scotched; it is practically
' dead, though a ghost of the business
itill lurvives, and even it will disappear. 'Offices to let' is written
up large on the building which contained one of tbe most notorious of
these establishments in Montreal."
Besides the Ordinary, evory-duy,
familiar, bnt monstrous, anomalies of
civilization and Cirristondom, there
an, it appears, in thil year of grace
eighteen hundred and eighty-eight,
yet some very dark places of the
earth, "full of the habitations of
cruelty." The Dark Continent,
which doei not> belie the-name as
well in this respect as in others, has
been and ia at present the theatre
where " man'a inhumanity to man "
not only "niakai countleii thousands
mourn " but makes them groan and
bleed nnd die under the most fiendish
orueltiM ever perpetrated by demona
incarnate. In an address to a London meeting, Lord Granville presiding, on the 31st ult., his eminence
Cardinal Lavagerie, special commissioner by the Pope to represent the
condition of Africa, spoke as follows
on the alav3 trader "I have not
come among .you actuated by any
political thought or interest. I am
only the servant of religion, humanity and justice, I come here in my
capacity of vet-ran pastor to implore
your pity for those of whom I consider myself the father—the poor
blacks of Africa—to whose salvation
I have dedicated myself for more
than twenty yean, together with
my miisiorutries, the white fathers
of Algeria, I address myself to
Christian England, 'because nowhere
can I find a greater respect for lib-
arty and human dignity, for it is
England who in this age has .token
tha initiative in the -abolition of
slavery in the Wert Indies, and this
ah. has done with on indomitable
energy and perseverance which have
»t last obtained the concurrence of
all nation, and the triumph of a
noble cause." The ipeaker proceeded to characterize the atrocities now
being perpetrated by the Mahomed-
ans, who are styled Arabs, in central
Africa ai a hundred times more horrible than colonial slavery. A few
extracts will disclose some of the
horrors under which unhappy Africa
II mad. to groan. These have not
been altogether unknown before.
For over half a century, said the lee
turer, while th. gaze of the civilized
world was fixed upon other countries,
Mabomedanism was invading, slowly and lilently, with indefatigable
perseverance, one half of Africa.
One of the errors so fatal to the
country* which Islam teaches, is that
humanity i. made up of two distinct
races—one, that of believers, destined to command; the other, that
of tha cureed, as they style them,
destiMd to serve, and they place the
unfortunate negro on the very lowest grade, H a beast intended for the
yok*. Having reached by their
conqueste tbe heart of a continent
Espied by negroes, the Moslems
ve therefore betaken themselves to
the work which i. justified by thoir
dwtrinM. In their impious slave-
trading hunt, they ravage and tie-
popuhtte whole provinces, "laying by
fir. >«d iword thoso whom they do
not carry away, and leaving behind
them a blackened waste. The centre of tlvMe horrible outrages is
doseribed a. one of the richest and
moat beautiful oeuntries in the
world, wonderfully fertile and
.bounding in resource!, where European, might live, prosper, and procure the nscessariei of life; but it is
fait being reduced to art uninhabited
desert by the icourging bands of Is-
Its,' Thefae red-h.nded raviihen,
in addition to capturing by stealth
•nd from uabub toMoh an extent
that "every woman, every child
that strays ten minutes away from
their village has no certainty of ever
returning to it," organize expeditions
;as if they wcre'*jfoing to wur, sbuie-
timea alone, sometimes, through a:
refinement of villany, ulied with
'neighboring tribes, to whom they
otter a share of the pillage, and who
on the morrow become their victims
in their turn, Thus they full at
night upon defenceless villages, setting fire to tbe straw huts and firing
upon every one thoy meet. The inhabitant, try to escape, seeking safety in the woods, in the heart of impenetrable thickets, in the dry beds
of rivers, in the tall grass of the
valleys. They are pursued. . Tho
aged, the men who offer resistance.
all who cannot.be sold in the mar
kets cf tlie interior, arc killed. All
who are captured—men, women and
children—are hurried off 'to some
market in the interior. Then commences for them,a series of unspeakable miseries. The men who appear
the strongest, whoso escape is to be
feared, have their hands tied (and
semetimes their feet) in such fashion
that walking . becomes a. torture.
On their necks are placed yokes,
which, attach several of them 'together. They march all day; at
night, when they stop to rest, a few
handfuls of raw sorgho are distributed among the captives. , Tins Is
all their food. Next.'morning, they
must start again, But after the
first day or two some—the women
and aged first—become worn out
and begin to halt. Then, in" order
to strike terror into this; miserable
mass of human beings,'- their conductors,, armed with a wooden, bar
to economize powder,, approach
those who appear to be the most
exhausted and deal them a terrible
blow in the nape of the neck. The
unfortunate victims utter a cry, and
fall to the ground in the convulsions
of death. Each time some one
breaks down the same horrible scene
is repeated, and at night, on arriving
at their baiting place, those who
show signs of sinking from Weariness are despatched in' the same
brutal way, to economize the scanty
food supply. But it is unnecessary
to revel in further horrors. In this
manner the weary tramp continues
—sometimes for months, when the
caravan conies from a,distance, the
wretched 'victims' diminishing in
number! daily. Therefore it has
been truly said that if a traveller
lost the way leading from equatorial
Africa to the towns where slaves
are sold, be Could easily find it again
by the skeletons of the negroes with
which it is strewed. " Slavery such
as it is to-day," said the ipeaker,
" can in effect only be atopped by
force. It is necessary to strike the
evil at its root, and to destroy the
markets of the interior, or to render them useless by establishing—as
your great Gordon wished to do for
the basin of the Nile—barriers
against slavery composed of natives
led and instructed by Europeans, in
order to supplement iho. barriers
formed by your cruisers." The rev
erend gentleman paid a tribute to
the services which Livingstone and
other devoted explorers had rendered
in the past, and also ts the noble
work being done by Emin Bey,
who, for more than ton years, had
by the aid of his native troops, kept
the whole of his great equatorial
province free from the ravages of
the slave-hunters. The success of
his example might well stimulate
similar action in other parts of
Africa, The practical conclusion
which the cardinal put to hii vast
audience was that all should join in
a generous agitation in favor of a
cause so grand and so pitiful. " I
entreat you," he said, "all to join
me in the utterance of a loud ory to
Clod first of all and then to all
Christian people, 'God save Africa.'

It is rumored the C.P.R. will shortly commence the "construction of a line
from this city to Vancouver, taking at
a route the low lands along the Bru-'
nette Rirer and Burnaby lake, thence
across country strikingthe main line be-
tweenHastings and Vancouver. The intention waa to build direot across tho
peninsula but the grades havo been
found, after a thorough survey, to be
too great, the lowest puss to the height
of land being something over 100 feet.
It il slid the work will be commenced
and finished this fall. The now line
will reduce tho distance between, the
two cities by some 10 miles—aii Item
which would bo grestly appreciated.

length and without a flaw, as thoy are
used exclusively for car sills and must

I.JuaetlM Granted.
Mr. B. Douglas, president, of the
Southern Railway, received a telegram
from Senator Oanfield this morning
stating that on application of the N.
W. B. B. &, S. Co., Judge Allen of
the supremo court of Washington
Territory has granted a full injunction
against the Seattle, Lake Shore &
Eastern R. 11, bridging the Snohomish River, .The above mentioned
road has been boasting that its charter
was us good is that controlled by Senator Caniicld, but Mr. Justice Allen
evidently thinks different--hence the
injunction. This action will set the
ball rolling and the developments arising therefrom will toon put Die public
in a position to judge which company
can best maintain its claims.
Cricket Maleli.
On Thursday the cricket match
Vancouver vs Westminster, postponed from last Saturday, will be played.
The following have been selected aa
the Vancouver team: Messrs. Ell-
wood (captain), Rev. H. F. Clinton,
Green, Tripp, Townley, Nelson, Beck,
Loutit, Sohofiold, Freeman and Wilkinson. This is as good a team is
Vancouver can put on the field with
the exception, perhaps, of Prenter as
. change bowler. Westminster will
also have a strong team and the best
sho has mustered this season. The
following gentlemen havo been chosen:
Miles, Coulthard, Chappel, Raymond,
Gilford, Woods, Wilson, Grume,
Hamber, Armstrong and Lewis. ' H.
Read spare man. This eleven ought
to win the match but it will require
good and steady play to ensure victory. Stumps will lie pitched at 10
o'clock, which will leave plenty of
time to finish both innings before dusk.
The cricket grounds are being put in
guod ahape for the match and will
probably be in better condition than
at any timo during tho season.
An Atuiellr Park Wanted.
In tlie new city park, lately acquired
from the government, is a tract of
about 10 acres, flat as a billiard tabic
and just tho thing for an athletic park.
This land lies about two blocks directly in rear of the ground now used us a
cricket field and is fully aa convenient
for all parties interested in athletic
games ns tho field in use. It is covered
with brush but has only a few large
stumps on it, whioh, it ia catimated,can
be removed at a small cost. The expense entailed in brushing, grubbing,
ploughing, harrowing, seeding and
rolling the ground would not be more
than fl.OOO, a sum which there sli-uild
be no tronblo in obtaining for that
purpose. If tho council would vote
the sum of 9500 the remaining {500
could be raised by private subscription
within 24 hours. The ground! in use
it present ire far too small .nd will be
out of the question for next yoir whin
other clubs will wish to play on it, or
perhaps it il built on. Therefore if
the clubi with to have a suitable field
for next season the sooner they take
wm. ateps in this matter the better it
will be, as it is now getting lato in the    ..
season and the work must be done be- loouncil enent the forry charter,
fore tht rainy weather sets in. .........

"Peck" as a Tklmblorlsier.
We aro sorry to note that our wcll-
knowii lypu, "Peck," ia not gaining
wisdom with uge,or experience by reading our tolling articles on tho many
snares laid in the paths of mortals to
rope them in. ; Unfortunately, "Pock"
visited the circus last week and hi.
peace of mind has been destroyed.
Had he visited the menagerie and
studied animal life in the shape of
mules and donkey, ho might havo
benefitted somewhat, but "Peck" loves
excitement and consequently fell into
bad company; Among the many devices for gambling away money"Peck"
chose thimblerigging as the most attractive, and succeeded in losing two
weeks wages in something less than
three minutes. Well would it have
been for "Peck" had he stopped there
and gone home satisfied that he was
hot born under a lucky star, but, ai
we said before, he refuses tu listen
io reason or learn by experience.
"Peok" admired the free and easy
manner in which the thimble-rigger
gathers in tho dust ind deoided, after
mature thought, to go inlo the tamo
business. Having procured tlie necessary implements, three half walnut
sheila and it pea, he set to work to
work to study the game and was soon
bo expert that he managed to win two
bits from a blind boy. This onoour-
agod the novice to imagine ho had
mastered the art and without further
loss of timo he borrowed $2 and entered our sanctum to inpoie on our innocent and childlike simplicity. We
are nut in the habit of allowing much
freedom with our typos but when
"Peck" explained the gamo we did
not repulse him but encouraged him by
our bland and unsophisticated manner
to empty his pocket against our stake.
Having made a study of thimble-rigging and many other wicked devices,
in order to be able to warn tho unwary, it is Dot to be wondered it If
"Peck" last his 82 on the, first trial.
TbW) "Berk" was pliuod, grieved end
diappointed goes without saying, but
we are sorry the lesson has hod no
effect, as he persists in following up
this latest crane, and wc hereby warn
the public against him.
