NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is to bo hoped that the question
as to the rights of the Seattle, Lake
Shore it Eastern, to build up to the
boundary line will be speedily settled in some decisive way, as it is
evident that we shall in the meantime be treated to any amount of
newspaper agony on the subject.
It seems there was a little fire behind all the snioke that was made
some tiiueago, about the Caroline
recapturing the seised sealers. The
admiral is to see that British subjects are not imposed upon or unjustly chivied out of their lawful
right's, when teal fishing in Behring
The East Indians are after their
officials, and complain of abuse of
position by men in high station, and
other evils. An instance is quoted
of one gentleman boasting that he
was making some $60,000 a year,
outside his salary. We don't wonder
to hear that people think its time
his affairs were looked into.
The wired account of Blaine's
welcome in New York is eurious
reading. We are told that Blaine,
as his steamer came up tho harbor,
"gloriously" surveyed the scene,
probably the reporter took his cue
from the chairman of the reception
committee who murdered Scott by
telling Blaine "One blast on your
bugle horn were worth thousands of
men." No doubt "horns" played a
prominent part in the affair.
A Taconia despatch of Aug. 10,
says;—"At Wilson's wheat warehouse on the watter front the piling
gave way this aftrnoon, dumping
from four to five thousand sacks of
wheat in the sound. More is expected to go. The loss up to this
time is over $9,000. The piling
was eaten by teredos." Taeoma is
a lively town, and might be a great
place, if it wasn't for the wit water.
These teredos and barnacles are a
terrible nusiance, Westminster,
with her glorious fresh-water harbor,
cannot begin to understand the disadvantages under which her sister
cities on the coast are laboring.
The Colonitt reprints from an
English paper, a letter giving a
rattier flattering discription of British Columbia, as to its climate, re
sources, ic, but declaring that the
moral health of young people would
be rained by the boodlumism of the
towns, while their bad sanitary arrangements and want of drainage
would seriuosly endanger the bodily
health of both young and old. Vancouver and Victoria are the towns
mentioned; but we are not sure
that New Westminster would have
come scatheless from the hands of
the same critic. Let us repeat here,
as the moral to this letter, what we
have often said, that moral and
physical decency and cleanlineu attract, while their opposite! repel,
the best and most desirable people.
(lore! civic government is ono of the
very best immigration advertisements a town can have.
A writer in the Popular Science
Monthly makes tho following interesting discrimination between walking exercise and arm exercise:—
Walking on an even surface, the
only variety of physical exercise
which most business and professional men get in town, is well known
to be a poor substitute for arm exertion. The reason is partially plain,
sincu walking is almost automatic
and involuntary. The walking mechanism is set in motion us we turn
on hour-glass, and requires little attention, much less volition and separate discharges of force from the
brain surface with each muscular
contraction, as ie the case with the
great majority of arm movements.
The arm-user, is a higher aniiilil
than the leg-user. Arm-motions are
more nearly associated with mental
action than leg-movements. A man's
lower limbs merely carry his higher
centres to his food or work. The
latter must bo executed with his
arms and hands. A third way in >
which arm exercise benefits the
organism is through the nervous
system. Whether this is due to an
increased supply of richer, purer
blood, or whether the continual dis
charge of motor impulses in some
way stores up another variety of
force, we do not know. Oue thing
is certain, tho victim of neurasthenia (nervous debility) is very seldom
an individual who daily uses his
arms for muscular work; with this,
the limit of hurtful mental work is
seldom reached.

New Yobk, Aug. 11.—The great
Joggini raft hoi paiscd Hell Gate
through the esiteru channel. A few
minute, after 12 o'olock it passed
down the Bait riv.r on the west side
of Blaokwell's Island in tow of seven
tugs. The leading tug. had a very
liberal length ef hawser.; and the
others were made fast to the raft,
three on each side. Little excitement
was caused by (he passage of the raft
through the Gate, but the shores were
well lined with people, all of whom
seemed disappointed. Fiom the shore
the raft looked like a gigantic whale,
or big ship bottom up. There waa
apparently a great deal more of it below the surface than above, and from
the ship-like shape of it and the submergence, apparently of the ends, it
did not look nearly as long ss it was
reported to be. Several men were
seen walking about on the raft as it
passed through the Gate and down
Bast river, hound for Brooklyn,
travelling at about two miles an hour.

Ottawa, Aug. 13.—It is learned in
official circles that the' Canadian Pacific people are taking steps to prevent
the ratification of the agreement entered into between the Manitoba government aud the Northern Pacific, by
which the latter is to acquire the Bed
River Valley road and secure entrance
into the Northwest which- the Canadian Pacific i. endeavorfng to-prevent.
With thii object in view the Canadian
Pacific will make desperate efforts to
defeat Greenway's government when
he calls the provincial legiajalure together to confirm the agreement mode
with the Northern Pacific, in hope of
shutting out such a formidable rival.
The Dominion government is preparing to use erery effort to defeat Premier Greenway and his railway agreement, and to protect the Canadian Pacific from foreign competition. A
prominent supporter of the. Dominion
government says that neither' the
Canadian Pacific nor the; Dominion
government wishes, to see the Northern
Pacific enter Manitoba or the Canadian
Northwest, and every effort will be
made by them to prevent it

By a news paragraph elsewhere it
will be aeon that the fishing boats
made tjuite a haul last night, comparatively epeaking. It is a notice
able fact that a fair catoh is generally made immediately after the
clow time (from noon on Saturday
till 6 o'claekv on Sunday evening),
even when very few salmon are
caught throughouttho week. The
reason for this is obvious. The Gsh
get an opportunity to cuter the river,
which during the weekthey are pro-
vented from doing by the cordon of
nets at tho month of the river and
the over-fishing generally. We have
called attention to this matter before, and have advised that fishing
outside of the river should be prohibited or greatly restricted, the
number ol boats appreciably diminished, and the olose time extended.
The cannerymen and others make a
great deal out of tho fact that this
is tho short year for sockeyes, und
say they are not at all disappointed
at the poor run. There is something in this, of course, but the fact
remains that tho river is being overfished and that tho salmon are prohibited from entering the river.
The fish taken lust night, and on
similar occasions, proves this.
They have a thoroughly democratic "my of managinn the general delivery at the Seattle postoOice.
There li no scrambling to see who'll
get to the wicket first; no such thing
as a big man asking for his letters
over the head of the sniull boy in
front. The first man to arrive takes
his place at the wicket, and aftor
him each one take3 his place, according to arrival, without any re-
speet to race, color, age, rank, or
previous condition of servitude, thus
forming a single file, which to accommodate Itself to the small,
cramped lobby, has to resolve itself
into serpentine convolutions; but
the order is never broken. He
who would attempt to do so would
be promptly ostracised. To persist
in such a course would be to court
lynching at the hands of an indignant and justice-loving people. The
Seattle Times of a recent date thus
animadverts upon a daring infraction
of the single file regulation lately
perpetrated. It is safe to say that
the culprit's life will be made miserable in the "queen city of the sound"
after this: " Last night a man of
colossal proportions stepped into the
postotfice to secure his mail at the
general delivery window. Instead
of coming in on his proper  turn on
the 8tnx.l° llio line, lio    -talked tinco
fourths of the way up the ranks towards the head, and after looking
round him in a sheepish manner for
some moments, he at last finds a
break in the line between two little
boys, and plants himself in tho vacancy. The result was that no less
than two others were deprived from
getting to the window before the
wicket dosed. To say the least of
it, it was a cowardly act, and should
bo looked upon aa a direct infringement upon the rights of those who
are willing to abide by the rules and
regulations of the postoflice or any
other institution. Tt is hoped that
in future a similar occurrence will
not be noticed."
Since Westminster has struck out
for a southern connection by railroad, we hear of new schemes by
-our friends of the salt water ' terminus to gain the. like advantage,
Although-the powers that be have
done all in their power to gratify
and satisfy the new city at the extreme northwest of ~the peninsula,
yet they are not satisfied unless
their patrons give them another
outlet by the south, even if it should
endanger the 0. P. R. monopoly
from ocean to ocean. It would have
been much better for all concerned
if the C.P.R. company had shown
a little mote impartiality between
Vancouver and Westminster. It
would have been even better for its
pet city if it had allowed traffic and
passengers a free choice of routes
from the junction westward; travellers from the east cannot buy a ticket for Westminster, and merohan
diss from this city has to be transhipped from Vancouver. If the
O.P.R. had built the road from the
junction to Westminster at their
own appetite, they might have had
mow apology for trying to boycott
Westminster in this way, but Westminster built the road to a great
extent, and hai a right to expect
batter treatment The 0. P. R.
probably manage to keep within the
fetter of their obligationa so far aa
their service to this oity ia concerned, but that is about all that can be
said for it. Such a course Is silly
on the part of the great Canadian
railway corporation—especially as
the short line between this city and
the junction has always paid well
for operating and would continue
to pay still better iu the future.
The miauitanpolicy of the 0. P. R.
in this matter will, in the long run,
react upon lit/tit, Weitminster's
increasing trade will, njttite naturally, drift into other ohanneli, although we believe the C. P. R. will
yet tee it to their interest to make
some arrangements for retaining a
sham of it.

" There  is no  rose  without its
thorn,"  oracularly   exclaimed  the
latest German emperor upon a cer.
tain occasion.    It would appear that
iveriithe "Big bait&licljs,"  although
*angjed on one's Bide, pnyjstill cjrry
tome   very '. unmistakable  thorns.
■poor Vancouver has   had  the  fall
advantage  of  the O.P.R. rose, but
if a Vancouver correspondent of I lie
Colonist, E. Stevenson by name, is
to be accepted as an authority,  the
thorns are beginning to fester very
painfolly.   The letter referred   to,
in Saturday's Coloniet, has the ring
of honesty about it.    "I am   by residence a Vancouyerite,"  says  the
writer, " and by nativity   a   Canadian and a patriot.   You havo heard
of the price of liberty, and eternity
is none too long, it would appear,
the vigil to keep.   So insiduons do
tho weeds of arbitrary power arise
to choke tho life out of free government, that they are long unnoticed;
yea, if seen, are not   recognized   as
the old, very old, enemy of mankind."
Tho writor then proceeds to give
harrowing details  of   the  absolute
and despotic sway exercised by the
O.P.R. over  the   monopoly-ridden
torminal city.   The  royal  city, in
happy contrast, has gro.it reason to
rejoice in the fact that she as a city
is arbiter of her own  destiny,  and
cannot be pulled hither and thither
according to the selfish whims of a
great and powerful railway corporation, to whom, as in  the  case   of
Vancouver, she owes her existence.
We will quote  a  portion  of the
writer's own words that   they  may
apeak for themselves.    Addressing
the Cobnut editor, ho says:   " You
know how this province gave in to
the O.P.' The C.P., you know, owns
the hill on the western side of   tho
peninsula.    You know   Vancouver
was burned after it had fairly commenced to establish itself on and east
of the old Granville town site.   Tho
fire gave the C. P. an  'opportunity
of pulling the new town on  to their
hill.   With this end in view, every
muscle   has   been contracted: every
device employed.    As the' government of Canada, I mean tho C.P.,
they put the express, telegraph, post
and custom offices away up on or ns
far west as their hill.    As well .put
the same offices, in Victoria, at the
outor wharf.   Those measures wore
adopted to retard the growth of the
city   eastward.   The  railway was
brought so as to herd people  up on
the hill, and placed over the month
of False creek so that no ship would
get to the east end by that channel.
Being the government,   they   could
obstruct a public highway with impunity.    In addition, strangers aro
all carefully advised that the city is
to be on the hill, their hill; that the
main business street is to run on top
ot till, hill at right   angle,  to   tne
wliurrer, and English bloods, who
have never seen the country, are induced to buy and build grand buildings on this street.   And   a  lot of
Canadians, who have been raised in
the finest country in the world, walk
from one to two and three miles to
reach   the   public offices aforesaid,
afraid of this new  Cnesus.   Think
of a Canadian town council humbly
asking anybody whether they would
be so kind as to remove an obstruction to a public highway, instead of
preventing the thing  in  tho  first
place or demanding in  the  second
that it be removed under penalty of
imprisonment   As a result we have
had a new obstruction thrust, on tho
same highway,  and  the   council
forced to help put it there—tho new
traffic bridge.   And all that the city
may be forced to grow on the aforesaid hill, far away from where  the
wharves  and   manufactories,   etc.,
must bo. I am, sir, a Canadian who
dares to say what requires saying."

t'hc girl with tlie camera out of account.
Her latest happy thought is picturing tlio
doings of children.
She—the particular girl with ft camera
to whom this paragraph refers—makes of
herself a peripatetic baby taker. She
spends an hour, a half day, a whole day
with n child, and by dint of suecesrive
Bhots at propitious moments with tin}
handy little detective, looking for all the
worl'lliko a lady's shopping bug, which
»!.e nses, she secures one picture, two
pictures, twenty pictures of the urchin ia
uticonstrained attitudes about its play.
The doting mother sends the small boy
and the girl with tho camera to the park.
The girl enjoys a morning's outlugitrd
ictunisRlim pies of master boy rfdiiijit in
the goat wsgon, skipping atones, rolling
heels over head on the grass, smiling up
nt you over a handful of daisies, peeping
through the bars of Mr. Crowley's cage.
The doting mother engages the girl
with the camera to preserve for her a
chronicle from sunrise to sundown pf
baby's day. The girl comes io" the nur-
sory, watches baby, catches baby splashing in her bath, catches her again rolling
In plump infantile nakedness on the floor,
chewing her toes, iaiighing^o an to show
her Jtrst tooth, clutching at the rattle
shaken in her face, screaming In colic
pnngs, dressed tor a turn iu the perambulator, nud laid away asleep in her crib.   -

After grieving for a uumbor of weeks, a

to lessen his sorrow, and for that purposo
hi; nailed upon a lady of his itcijunintanao

in private , i ..

"My dear," he said after a long pause.
"I'll come to the point at onco. I hate a

"A proposal?"  '
"Yes."
"Ah!" she said, blushing, and covering
her face with her hands.
"I have concluded to write my wife's
biography. Now, I have little skill In
literary exercises, and if you will correct
my manuscript and write the headings of
the chapters, I will givo you five dollars."

Besult of* Woman's Whim* ,"-•
The old city of Stavoren, in Holland,
used to be a very wealthy pity, and It en-'
joyed an extensive commerce. The town
Is now poor, and has lost all its shipping.
Tho decay of the place Is attributed to
tho fact that the harbor is becoming filled
with sand. Right In front of theentranee
lies a broad grass-grown sandbank whioh
is called- lady*sandt end- with whleh Is
connected the following story:
Tho wife of a wealthy merchant onco
desired one of her husband's captains to
bring her from abroad "the most precious
thing in the world." The worthy Dutch
mariner, in conscientious fulfilment of
the request, accordingly brought back a
cargo of wheat from X)antzic.
Tito lady, Indignant nt his stupidity,
ordered the valuable freight to be thrown
overboard at tho mouth of the harbor.
This act of wanton waste ultimately
caused the ruin of tho proud and luxurious city.
For the grain is said to.have taken root,
nud to have formed the foundation of the
sandbank, which is daily increasing in
extent, and constitutes an insuperable
barrier to tho entrance of that ouceexccl-
leut haven.
"Laid Out" iu Mistake.
"I had o brothor in Austin, tade*
County, in theearly days of that camp,"
said a gentleman yesterday, "who was
taken very- IU, nnd to all appearances
, died. He w*s properly Maid out* nnd a
number of friends staid up to watch him.
"A friend who did not know of bis supposed decease dropped in during tho
night and Inquired in ft loud voice, 'How
is John?'
"John said, 'Hello! Jonps.'  ,
"Of course there whs i* Scene, you know.
The fact Is that John didn't, know the layout, or he would not have disturbed tho
proprieties of the oceasiuu, because he
was very methodical iu everything that

Caiiiu'liyof Our Dumb Friends for a High
Degree of Intelligence.
"] fin-not go the extent of, bomb acieu-
tl^l <ir*- H:Ud adlstinguiV.eil student of the
animal kingdom recently, "in theopinion
that a time will ever come when the lower
animals will possess the power of speech,
butl firmly believe that iu a few generations certain of these animals will advance
to a wonderful degree In the matter of
intelligence,
"Experiments have been already made
lit .England which demonstrate that some
of them arc capable of almost everything
except to, speak. Shepherd dogs have,
been taught to count and, at the order of
their master, will bring back a certain
number of sheep from the pastuiw, if credence is to be placed in the reports wbloh
have been made from time to time within
the last few years and which bear the
stump of authenticity, I j ' ■:
,. "In order that the education of animals
like cats, dogs and horses, which have already shown a certain degree of mentality, may be brought to the highest state
of perfection it is necessary that the more
intelligent of these brutes should be kept
apart from others of their kiudand should
beiuterbred, while their offspring should
be treated in the same way.
"A horse trainer of national renown
told me not long ago. .that he had been
working ou that theory for many years.
aud that he found the oppring of trick
horses were much niorf easily taught than
those which came from animals never
trained in the ring.
"The associations with whioh an animal
Is fmrrounded have a wonderful effect up*
on its mental development, oven thongh
no special pains have, been taksn to educate it, as is the cast with our common
household pets whioh have for fenerations
been subjected to gentle iaflttnees. Tet
the progenitors of these domestic animals
once roamed the forest as wild and untamed as the panther In the Indian jungles, and eveu now are found wild and
ferocious in certain parts of the world..
"How, then, can we forecast the extent
to which they can be educated during the
myriads of ages of the future?"

Grand Pacific last week for a few days,
while en route to the Pacific Coast,
has a very favorable of that town and
the surrounding district as a valuable
mining field. He visited Nicola and
other parts of the country for the purpose of inspecting the mines nnd the
ore therefrom. As a result of his visit
to Kamloops, he has decided, ill con'
junction with Manager Henderson, of
the Star mine, to form a company wilh
$50,000 paid up capital and constructs
30-ton smelter in Kamloops or some
other point in the surrounding district.
Mr. Henderson stated that Kamloops
would have tho first chance of location,
and the smelter would be placed there
on tlie condition that a bonus of $5,000
was granted by tho town.

Built II Alone.
A man named Freitch has built an
18-ton sloop, on the north arm of the
Inlet, which was launched successfully
the other day. The affair would not
bo worth special mention but for Iho
fact that all the work in connection
with the sloop was performed by
Freitch alone. He cut the trees,
handlogged them to his little shipyard,
sawed the logs into the shape required,
laid the keel, set the ribs, and, to out
it short, finished her from stem to
stern without uny assistance whatever:
Freitch ii a genius in his way, and is
a very skilful workman. Close to
where the sloop was built a small
stream emptied into the Inlet and this
he utilized as power to run a tiny saw-
mill which his ingenuity improvised.
Tho little craft is now afloat and sits
tho water ss gracefully as a swan. Her
lines are very pretty and indicate
speed, which was Freitoh's intention
in building hi. "Lono Hand."

On Monday a rock slide occurred
about twelve miles wost of here on tho
C. P. R. line. The debris covered
about one hundred and forty feet of
the road bed to a depth of nearly
thirty feet in places and completely
filling a rock eut. Two freight trains
which left here Monday morning returned shortly afterwards and were
delayed until Wednesday when a temporary track was constructed over a
portion of the elide. Express trains
were delayed some hours, owing to
the necessity of transferring passenger! and express at the scene of the
slide, before the "hog', back" waa
formed over the debris on Wednesday.
Yesterday afternoon a land slide occurred about two miles west of the
town, the track being buried for some
hundreds of feet by a shower of mud
several feet deep, and having the appearance of being caused by the bursting of a waterspout during the heavy
wind and rain storm yeaterday.—

principal sawmills of British Columbia aud the sound. The Wm, Co.
ore the largest sawmills machinery
manufacturer! in Canada, their principal lines being gang, circular and
heavy band saws, sawmill engines
und all heavy machinery used in the
manufacture of lumber. Heretofore
the company had not attempted to
aupply the British Columbia trade, ss
the style of -machinery used is different
from that of the eastern provinces,
but Mr. Hamilton's trip to the coast
was for the purpose of inspecting the
machinery in use with a view of bidding for the rapidly increasing milt
requirement! of the province. Mr.
Hamilton has secured all the information he sought and will immediately
commence the manufacture nf machinery suitable to our mills. Messrs.
F. G. Strickland * Co., who are; practical machinists, have been appointed agents for this province for tho
company, and are already negotiating
to aupply a largo milling concern with
a complete outfit. The agency it eon-
