As we walksd nlong through the
jungle I failed to keep up with the
othor inuiiilitirs of the party, who
lind got on some distance ahead,
when suddenly I heard a rustle iu
the underwood, and almost at the
same moment au enormous tiger
pieninted himself and prepared to
spring upon me. I hud never seen
a more magnificent beut, and I
could not help admiring him, not
withstanding the danger of my position. But there was no time to be
lost. 1 immediately presented my
rifle and fired. As ill-luck would
have it neither shot struok, and in
another second the tiger was on me
and had thrown me down, his claws
buried in my shoulder. I had no
particular sensation of fear, and I
remember thinking quite enraly aa I
lay on the ground, the tiger's hot
breath coming against my face:
"It's all up wilh me now." But at
that moment my faithful little Mango came to the rescue; he bit the
tiger's tail so severely that the
beast immediately released hii hold
and turned round to seize his new
adversary. ButMungo, aa sharp
and wary as he was plucky, wu off
in the tall gross in an instant. The
tiger followed, bnt the dog had the
advantage over him, u he could run
through tho grass and under the
brushwood ut a pace which the
other could not keep up with. In
fact, it wu almost comical (o see
how the great creature bounded
about in its useless chase after the
dog..
But I knew that the tiger, disappointed of seising Mungo, would
soon be back again to attack his
master, so I reloaded my gun and
stood awaiting his return. In a
short time he wu before me again
and I leveled my gun as well u I
could, considering the pain in my
left shoulder. Ihe first shot missed,
but the second struck the tiger in
tho shoulder, crippling him and
made him roll about in agony. Reloading al rapidly as possible, I went
nearer to hiui, aimed very deliberately, and this time gave him his
quietus. Scarcely had I done so
wben Mungo came bounding up to
me, looking into my face and whining as if with joy at seeing me safe.

I. am told by one who is interested
in the welfare of girls who earn
their living at "the mercy of, tbe
world," that out of every 100
girls there are not ten who ean. sew
on a button straight or help themselves in any way.—I wu talking
with a woman who knows young
girls well, and much of whose life
has been passed in teaching in the
public sohools, yesterday, and she
assured me that sbe did not doubt
the truth of thst statement. "Tou
would be surprised," she aaid, "if
yon saw girls as I have seen them,
to find how little they ara taught at
home. Mothers who hare worked
hard seem determined that their girls
shall not Mothers who are the
wives of labouring men spare their
daughters the learning of the simplest sort of sewing, They send
them to sohool. They give them
useless courses of geometry and trigonometry, and the only course of
sewing thoy get is the youthful
training in the lower classes at the
grammar school, where one hour
each week is devoted to suoh work."
I quite agree with my friend. Girls
of whatever station should be taught
to help themselves. Why should
they not be as able to make olothes
us to entertain I Surely the One
may bo of infinite service when the
other is past use. More than that,
any girl who can help herself, and
is proud enough to do it in an emergency, is safe in the world.—Boston Home Journal.

The Great Race Problem—-A liltle girl who had spent the five yenrs
of her lifo in a very retired place in
the country had never happened to
seo a colored person. ' She loved to
be out of doors—indeed, spent most
of hor time playing iu the ,v»rtl—
but sire never would keep a lint ur
bonnet on her head a.id her mntImr
often told her she would grow black
with sunburn, A cousin who visited them about that time had some
photographs with her, and among
tliem was one of a little colored
child, Grace, looking them over,
paused at this one, wu silent for
a little, and then softly Whispered
to herself: "So thut is what comes
of playing bare-headed out in the
sun."—Detroit free Press.

U8I MOHT-H DESPATCHES.
TUOUULB IN 2UI.ULAMI.
Lokikw, July 13.—There is considerable excitement in military am] political circles to-dsy at the announcement .that a regiment stationed in
Egypt has been ordered' to Zululand
snd that a regiment from AMorshot
would replace it. The opinion is that
serious trouble with the Boers of south
Afries is expected.
THE BOCLASOEB DUEL
Pams, July 13.- The street, sre
crowded with people; this is partly owing to the fete which was held to-night
on the eve of the national holiday.
Frequent shouts are heard, both for
and agsinst Boulanger. M. Aliget,
who presided in Boulangor's absence
at a banquet given to-night, announced
that the general's condition is ss favorable u possible. The Soir says that
serious high fever has set in, succeeded
by extreme prostration. Respiration
wss rapid and sometimes vory dillicult.
The doctors are unable to form a definite opinion of the case as yet. No
fresh bulletin has been issued. > Dr.
Labbe, one of Boulsnger's .physicians,
believes if matters progress favorably
the general will be cured in a fortnight. The danger, however, lies in
complication of pbelebitis of the neck,
which is possible and which would endanger Ihe life of the patient. The
doctors consider it a miracle that the
general escaped a wound whioh would
have immediately been mortal. Gen.
Boulanger is in much pain,

The Boulanger  inflation baa at
last come to a head' end required
lancing.   Premier Floquet' acted as
surgeon in the case, and Boulanger
"got it in tbo neck," although it is
stated he tried hard to kill his accommodating vivisector. FoorBoul-
anger lost much blood and fainted
clear away, bnt he is getting on " as
woll as could bo expected," us the
doctors say.   According to our despatches, the wound which the gallant soldier received in the nook
from the point of the statesman's
sword is no trifling affair, nnd it is
impossible at present to predict what
the result may be,   This episode of
the duel it not likely to add to the
would-be dictator's  prestige either
in   the   army    or    tho    nation,
especially   us  his   swordsmanship
didn't    "save    his    neck,"   and
he allowed   a  civilian   to    "get
away with him,"   The inoident certainly reflects no credit upon either
of tbe combatants nor upon tbeir beloved France,   The duel grew out
of a passage of words in the chamber
of  deputies, and   was  an  n^iiiYe
d'honnettr of course, though where
the honor comes in it is difficult to
see.   Other civilized countries have
attached the stigma of disgrace to
these affairs, although they make an
exception in favor of national duels
and still invest wholesale butchery
with a dazzling veneer of glory.

The presidential elebtibii'contest
with   all its accompaniments is a
conundrum to those who are strangers to American politics.   The time
and money spent by the press alone
in such a campaign is wonderful, but
it is remunerative and might as well
be circulated in that way as any
other.   The Chicago Current of the
7th inst. has a tabular statement of
the   llepublican   and   Democratic
states, and of those classed doubtful,
■with the electoral votes of each. The
whole number of electoral votes is
401; necessary to  a choice, 201.
The Current seems to handle the
" fighting chance,'' as the article is
headed, in a clever chess-board style.
It thinks that the old-time Whig influence  of some  of  the southern
•Utes and the cry of "Tippecanoe
and Tyler too," changed to " Tippecanoe and Tariff too," will swell the
votes for the grandson of the hero of
Tippecanoe, and the Whig power
that vitalized the Republican party
in 1856 and carriod it to victory in
1860 may animate it anew in 1888.
It will be remembered by some that
the old Whig patty ceased to exist,
and that the southern wing became
Democratic on the question of slavery, and the party north entered
into the formation of the Republican
party.   This party sprang nom the
issue of slavery, and its purpose was
to prevent the extension of slavery
into the territories.  The Republican
plattorm of 1860, upon which the
party came into power, was chiefly
devoted to the various aspeots of the
slavery question, the union, and the
rights of the slaves, .to.
The general policy of the Republican party in the United States has
been a moderate revenue tariff. In
1884 the platfdrm was a war plat
form,
thip£s: I' W$f recommend -economy
and rigid-responsibility in the public
expenditure, and u vigorous and
just system of taxation." In 1868
tlie platform declared that "it is
due to the labor of the nation thut
taxation should be equalized and reduced as rapidly as the national
obligations will permit," und also,
"thegovernmOnt of tho United States
should bo administered with the
strictost economy." From 1880 to
1872 the Republican platforms were
silent upon what is now declared to
be the supreme policy of the party.
Garfield said: " I am for a protection which leads tn ultimate free
trade, I nm for thnt freo trade
whicli can only bo achieved through
a reasonable protection." Again
(larlield said: " Tho signs are unmistakable that a strong reaction is
setting in against the prevailing
[tariff] rates, and he is not a wise
legislator who shuts his eyes to the
facts of the situation, lie is not a'
faithful representative who votes for
the highest rate proposed in order to
show on the record that he voted for
the highest figure, and therefore is a
sound protectionist. He is the wisest man who sees the tides and currents of public opinion, and uses his
best efforts to protect the industry
of the people against sudden collapses and sudden changes. Kow if
I do not misunderstand the signs of
the times, unless wo do this ourselves,
prudently and wisely, we shall before
long be compelled to submit to a violent reduction, made rudely and
without discrimination, which will
shock, if not shatter, all our protected industries." Iu his message of
1884 President Arthur said: " In
my annual message of 18821 recommended the abolition of all excise
taxes except those relating to distilled spirits. This recommendation
is now renewed. In case these taxes
shall be abolished, the revenue that
will remain to the government will,
in my opinion, not only suffice to
meet its reasonable expenditures, but
will afford a surplus large enough to
permit such tariff reduction as may
seem to be advisable when the results of recent revenue laws and
commercial treaties shall hnve shown
what quarters these reduptions

In this issue of the Columbian
will be found a communication from
Mr, John £. Lord, under the heading " Fro Bono Publico," and dealing with the important subject of
the proposed bonus to the Westminster-Southern Bailway.    It is cer
tainly for the publio good that this
question should be freely discussed,
and we commend Mr. -Lord's communication—in wnich wn believe he
honestly states his views—to the
consideration   of   tbe   ratepayers,
with the hope that it may lead to
further discussion and a thorough
canvass of the whole subject. While
we should be sorry to see any frao-
. turns or unreasonable opposition to
the scheme which is now before the
city for the construction of our
Southern Railway—a scheme the advantages of which we have already
noticed from our standpoint—still
any fair and dispassionato criticism
whioh will tend to throw any additional light upon the propositions
with the view of modifying some of
their provisions in the public interest, can not fail to be appreciated
by all patriotic citisens.    There is
too much at stake in this affair to
take anything for granted, and every
citizen should consider it a duty as
well as a privilege to be thoroughly
posted before he passes finally upon
the scheme at the ballot box.   Our
comspondent's argument that the
railway should receive government
assistance we consider is well taken,
and, for the same reasons, so should
the bridge.   Both will be a' great
convenience to the whole district,
and of no small value to the entire
province.   Westminster should not
be compelled to shoulder the whole
burden of an undertaking the advantage*  of  which   witl   be   equally
•hired by a large district and by the
province in a measure.   It may be
found necessniry for the present that
ther city should assume the entire
obligation for both road' and bridge
so as to expedite  matters, but the
provincial govertittittit rtunld be expected ti.«H*rtJlttt. of '-jlirt of the
burden in due time and process. We
hope to have': moro communieations
on this subject.
can be most judiciously effected." It
will be seen from the foregoing, as
compared with the present Republican platform, how party changes base
in order to catch votes. With au
overflowing treasury the Republicans
are not willing to relax the tariff
rates on really needful things, but
only whiskey and tobacco they
would make free, whilst, on the
other hand, the Democrats, with
Cleveland as leader, aro going in for
rational reform. Should the independent prohibition party in the
states join issue, the Republicans
may regrot that they incorporated
" cheap tobacco and free whiskeyi-il
into their platform. A similar contest on the same subject is brooding
in our own Dominion and will come
up at the next general election for
our serious consideration. It is the
same old question of " might versus
right" that has troubled the raoe
since " Cain slew Abel."

An Eminent Writer's Observation a on
,. Tliese Abuses of Language.    "_ ,
■ "Cant" was the Gaelic or British word
cainnt, signifying language—tho lan-r
guage, par excellence, of the common
people iu tho olden time before tho prevalence of tho Teutonic or Anglo-Saxon.
From that language tho now common
clang of the streets, nnd of the very lowest classes of the population, imitated too
cztcusively in our duy by tho clusa immediately above them, and even by those of
a still higher grade, la in great part do-
rived. fi$iM
If proof be needed of the fact, it will be
only necessary to cite such words nnd
phrases as "cove," "bloke," "beak,"
"hook it," "do you twig," "masher,"
"brick," "cat your stick," nnd scores of
others thnt are hut too familiar among
tho millions both of low and high life.
"Cove," a fellow, a man, a person, Is
from the Celtic or Keltic caobbh—bh pronounced |ns v—which signifies courteous,
and is synonymous with ttio vulgar abbreviation of "gent" for gentleman.
"Bloke," a term of disrespect and not
of courtesy, is from ploc, a large or bull
lic.ided person, und plocacb, a big, strong,
coarse person.
"Hook it," to bo off, to nm away, to
decamp, is  from  thugad—th silent—a
command to be gone! to go nway!
.   "Beak," a mafiintnite, is from beachd,
judgment or a judge.
"Do you twigf" do you miderstamlMs
from tulfj, to understand, and tulgsin;
comprehension.
"Masher," tt beau, a dandy, i\ swell, au
exquisite, Is probably,'though not-certainly, from mens, pronounced mash, elegant.
"Brick," tho highest encomium paid to
a good fellow, is from hfigli, spirit, energy, courage and vijiht feeling, and
brlgheil, high spirited and magnanimous,
"Cut your stick,''to disappear, to run
nway, to decamp, is a lutiicious corruption oiouicAstoa'cli, or "le*ivo;!u*house,"

Ao Illustration ot Misdirected "Energy

A vivacious lady was relating to a
friend how much difficulty she nud a few
others had had in raising a sum of money
sufficient to send a missionary to Constantinople.
"We did have to work' soiifl'rtl,"6he
said pathetically. " People absolutely
refused to be interested. We held fairs
and made people buy things; and we bad
parlor concerts and actually forced our
friends to take tickets; tod we sewed and
we begged subscriptions.
"But now we've got the money U ta
worth all our trouble to see the zeal of tho
young lad j we nre going to send but. Of
course she won't introduce religion at
first, until she has wonthclr Ifg-ird; but
she's bought a Turkish gnunmar, and
she is so eager to begin to civilize the
Turks, and she has such olever ideas about
how to go to work, too;''
"But how will she go to work?" the
friend inquired. "What will she teach
tbem first?"
"Oh, all sorts ot nice things," the other
returned rapturously. "Things thattend
to elevate. She'll teach them to—to—why,
to eat with knives and forks and not to
have harems and to sit on chairs,"

The Palmy Days of Minstrelsy.

A MILLIONAIRE'S MANSION.
=es
Tho   Finest   Coiintry  Efnu;o ' oa'   Tbo
Ainci'lonn Continents  '
-Almost every American has heard of
J. C. Flood, the California millionaire,
but very few are aware of tho fact tbat
Mr. Flood is the owner of the most magnificent country house and grounds in
North America.
This estate is nt Menlo Park, near San
Francisco. It covers 1,000 acres, and is
under tho oharge of u laudsenpe gardener
and ISO assistants. The drives are several miles in length, aud nre made of
whito gravel kept spotlessly clean. The
foliage, shrubbery snd flowers aro beyond description, Everything Is a "symphony iu white nnd gold."
Tho porter's lodge is n beautiful cottage near tbo only entranoe io the
grounds and the great gates are whito
and gold.
The grounds are lighted by hundreds
of gas lumps with ground glass shades,
the gas beiug made on the place. Statuary of the most chaste and eloquent design and of exquisite workmanship gives
a finish to the smooth-shaven lawns and
closely trimmed hedges.
But the house is the main attraction.
It is built in a style of architecture that
might be termed Frenoh, although not
decidedly of thnt school. It Is dazzling
white, the roofs are of blaok slate in patterns, and tbe decorations are all fn gold.
Even the inside blinds und the furnishings nro white and gold, and this effect
has been preserved, ln the finishings of
the servants' quarters, the superb stable
and all tho buildings on the premises.
The house stands ou an eminence and
overlooks one of the most beautiful lawns
that art could produce. Fountains plash
on every side; n terrnc*of-ivy and flowere
hems in the eastern view, while a bank of
violets and a wall of roses temper the
force of the ocean breezes and perfume
theuK,
The perfect creation of an artistic
mind, .with all the necessary fuuds to
maintain it in its perfection, Flood's palace stands unrivaled in America, a typical home of a self-mttde millionaire.
AMERIOA THE OLDEST CONTINENT.
This Is tho Opinion Held by Modern
-Ucoluglsti..,
America, according to modern geologists and other scientists, is Jn fact not
tho new but the old world. Had this
must nn uiu nt continent no human Inhabitant!?, and these no history?
When speaking of the primitive history
of man on earth, America Ib never taken
into account. Yet, recent researches nml
discoveries have proved conclusively that
the mighty races that lived on this continent thousands of yoars ago had reached
a high degree of civilization; that they
not only kuew how to express their
thoughts bymeanaof a written language,
'but that they lum .preservctMhif pt imlpnl
events iu their" history,'by carviny the
record on the stones of the facades aud
walls of their public buildings nud in
books illustrated with colored pictures,
as ours nre to-dutf*. ■••' -^
These writings aro no longeramyitery,
a key to their reading having been found.
By translating some of them It has been
discovered that their civilizationextrted,
once upon a time, as great an influence
on that of various nations of Asia and
Africa as does the English to-day.
The ruins of the extensive cities they
Inhabited, of tbe superb monuments they
erected to the glory pf their gods and the
memory of their kinge, pfo-rethat they
had made' great progrttlTIn tho arts of
drawing, sculpture aud architecture, as
well as in mathematical aud other
sciences.
Is not this sufficient lnducemipt to call
the attention of American scientists, of
American archaeologists, to a flehV Of Inquiry still unexplored, that offers the
promise of such a bountiful harvest of
knowledge IJ,   ■ -   .-.^
The history of Ameridna tew centuries
previous to the Spanish conquest shows
that tbe civilized coui#ries of Central
America had been InrijdttUttd overrun
by hordes of barbaro*ua*j|i«a*le, who, settlings them, had intrqduc-tfawtuinary
and other bar bar lo customs and sttea-tb at,
ut first, were extremely npifMftl to-the
inhabitants.
Among these rites, tbat of sacrificing
human beings as the moat precious offering that man could make to Deity, in the
course of time became quite general, .
A CURIOUS PROPHEOV.Y
TlicFut nre Graattteu of Amtrtesa ladtis-
trjr Foretold. ''-■-*. .
An almanac for: 1758 contains a curious
prophecy of tho future greatness of North
America.
"Here we find," ssys the writer, "avast
stock of proper materials for ths art and
Ingenuity of man it work upon:—Treasures of immense worth; concealed f rom
the poor, ignorant aboriginal nstivss."
He alludes especially to ths immtpse
deposits of iron ore, saying:
"This metal, more useful than gold and
silver, will employ millions of hands, not
only to form the martial sword and peaceful share alternately, but an infinity of
utensils improved in the exercise of art
nud handicraft among men. Nature
through all her works has stamped authority ou this law, namely, 'that all fit
matter shall be improved to Its best purpose.'
"Shall not then those vast quarries
that teem with mechanic stone,—those
for structure be piled Into great «ltfcs,—
nud those for sculpture Iuto statnes to
perpetuate the honor of reuownsd heroes;
even thoae who shall now save their oountry?
"Ol ye unborn inhabitants of America!
should this page escape its destined conflagration at the.year's end,and these
alphabetical letters remain legible,—
when your eyes behold the snn after hs
bos rolled the seasons around fortwoor
three centuries more, yon will knpwithat

Axe constantly exposed to danger from
CoWa, Whooping Cough, Croup, and
diseases peculiar to tho .throat and

Cherry Pectoral, promptly administered, affords speedy relief and cure*
As a remedy for Whooping Cough,
with which many of our children wero
afflicted, we used, during the past winter, with much satisfaction, Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral. For this affection, we
consider this preparation the most efficacious of all the medicines which hare
come to our1 knowledge.—Mary Park-
hurst. Preceptress, Home for Little
Wanderers, Doncaster, Md.
My children bavo beon peculiarly subject to attacks of Croup, and I fulled to
and any effectivo remedy until I commenced administering Ayer's Cherry
Peotoral. This preparation relieves the
difficulty vi breathing and Invariably
cures the complaint.—David G. Storks,
Chatham, Columbia Co., N. V.
I bavo used Ayer's Cherry Peotoral
In my family for many years, and
have found it especially valuable in
Whooping Cough. This medicine allays
all irritation, prevents inflammation from
extending to tho lungs, and quickly subdues any tendency to Lung Complaint.
-J. B. Wellington, Plainville, Mich.
I find uo medicino so effective, for
Croup and Whooping Cough, as Ayer's

Dr. Walkem, under instructions
from the government, proceeded to
Cowichan ou Sunday, and on Monday
exhumed the bodies of Miller and
Dring, who were murdered in 18811.
The bodies woro in a good atate of
preservation, the features of both men
being recognisable. The doctor found
a number of beaver shots in both
bodies, but did not find a bullet. Just
as Dr. Walkem had completed the unpleasant duty he received a telegram
announcing the death of Quamlet, and
telling him there was no further need
of  the post mortem.—Nanalmo Free

Janlor Baseball Hatch.
A baseball match, Vancouvor juniors
vs. Westminster juniors, took place,
on the athletic grounds yesterday afternoon in tho presence of a large number of people. From the first it was
evident the visitors had not tho slightest chance against the home team. In
batting, pitching, catching and fielding the Westminster boys showed to
muoh more advantage than their opponents, and so much mom superior
was their play that no special effort waa
made to run up a large score. The
scores at the ond of the Oth innings
wero as follows: Vancouver, Campbell 2, King 1, Myers 2, Quann 2,
McLeod 1—total 8 runs. Westminster, Greig 7. Taylor 10, 0. Higgins 5,
E. Higgins 8, Peele C, Catei 0, Miller
ti, Ore/ 5, Kelly C—total 59 runs.
The trustees of the Church of England, Masonic and Oddfellow's cemeteries have employed Mr. John Lister
to put these sacred enclosures in t
condition appropriate with the respect
in which they should be held. Of late
grass, weeds and bushes havo been allowed to grow and llourish unheeded,
excopt by A few who have kept the
last resting place of thoir beloved dead
free from tho rank growth which defaces the greater part of the cemetories.
Some of the enclosed plots are in a
disgraceful state und should bo attended
tu with as little delay ss possible. Those
who can afford to own plots should al-
so be able to keep them in a respectable condition. The caretaker, Mr.
Lister, will take oharge of these lots
for a small turn, which does away with
all excuses for allowing them to remain
longer in the state so many of them
are now in.

Illicillewaet Silver,
Mr. F. Fooks returned to the city
yesterday from Illicillewaet bringing a
large number of rich specimens of silver ore obtained from the tunnel being
sunk by the Illicillewaet Silver Mining
Co. When Mr. Fooks left the mines
the tunnel had reached a distance of
19 feet into the mountain, and the
workmen had just struck a rich vein
whieh gave brilliant promise. When
tho tunnel had reached 5 feet into the
mountain a vein uf silver*>bearing
quartz was struck of exceeding richness. The vein is 4 feet wide and
some of the samples taken from it assayed 9300 in silver to the ton. Both
the veins discovered nre pitching towards the main* lead whioh is expected
to be struck at a distance of 80 to a
100 feet from the mouth of the tunnel.
The gentlemen owning this mine are
all residents of Westminster and nre
naturally elated with the rich prospects ahead of them.

B. C. Lumber Trade.
The lumber trade of British Columbia is looking up. Since thu opening
oftho Pacific railway, lumber has found
its way in increasing quantities to the
east of the Rocky Mountains. Lumber
it now being shipped from the mouth
of the Fraser river to Australia and
Mexico. This trade may be expected
to increase in all directions, snd to be
extended to other places. The number and capacity of the sawmills uro
constantly being increased. Messrs.
Rosa & McLaren, well known in this
province and in Quebec, nre to erect a
mill in the Pacific province capable
of manufacturing nearly 300,000 feet a
dsy. The Dominion is affording facilities for (his trade by improvements
which it is making at the mouth of the
Fraser river, on whioh 920,000 has
been expended, at a total estimated -cost
of 950,000. Lumbering will open the
way to agriculture, and British Columbia must, from the nature of its
climate, become one of the fairest
provinces of the Dominion.

In spite of the many rodeotions cast
'on the agricultural capabilities of British Columbia by wise men from the
east (who only require three days to
learn everything the province is capable of), the soil of our glorious country
doesn't seem to bo annoyed at the unfair treatment it receives at the hands
of these tartants, but hoops right on
producing prodigies in the way of
fruits, vegetables, otc.with a generosity rather surprising considering the
little encouragement it receives. This
morning Mr. John French, of Pelhara
St., laid on our tablo a dozen or so pods
of peas which for size, flavor and sweetness would BUrplso anyone bnt a British
Columbian. The pods average exactly 5 inches in longth snd contain 9 nr
10 peas each, the majority having 9.
The peas ate as large aB small sized
marbles being from lj, to 1J inches in
circumferenoe. Many of the peas, split
iu two, measure half an inch across.
Some of these pods will be sent to the
Toronto exhibition for the purpose of
showing our eastern friends that the
country is not so unproductive as would
bo supposed. The peas are of the Stratagem vnriety and were imported by
Mr. French os an experiment. They
are equal in flavor and sweetness to
any of the smaller varieties.

The Columbus bas many times referred to the splendid opening for live
men in the Cod and halibut Ashing.
The Americans are alive to the profits
to bo made out of this industry and
are taking advantage of the opportunity. The schooner Oscar & Bettie
arrived in Port Townsend on Saturday
last with a cargo of .100,000 pounds of
Ditched halibut secnVed off the coast of
Queen Charlotte Islands, whero two
banks were discovered. Tho fish will
bo shipped to custom Amorican points
where it will bo converted Into smoked
halibut, and put on tho markot. The
captain of the schooner reports halibut
as being in abundance where he was
fishing. His vessol was out a couple
of months, and during that time his
crew did good work. The schooner is
a small one, has six hands, and a fair
profit will be realized from the venture.
The halibut can be oaught and prepared ou the schooner for shippiiifi on
board the cars, and placed in thu latter for perhaps a trifle over one cent
per pound. The cost of putting it on
the market in the east would probably
be three cental a pound so that it can be
readily seen that the business is a remunerative one, In the case ol the fresh
halibut, whioh Oapt Jacobs, of Gloucester, Mass., is shipping eut, Ihe
price obtained is excellent, the fish in
its fresh state being highly esteemed
by eastern epicures. The present
osstern supply of halibut is brought
down the Atlantic coast from Greenland, and the Iish, tliough larger in
size than the Pacific variety, are lint
as fine or firm in flesh. Tho demand,
however, is greater than the supply.

A Leyal Legion Vettt.
Yesterday,' upwsrd of: sixty boys
and girls bolonging to company A of
the New Westminster division of
tho Loyal Temperance Legion of
British Columbia, being prevented by
the unsettled state of the weather from
going somo miles out of town for tlieir
annual pic-nic, mot instead in the
spacious, new W. C. T. V, hall on
Douglas street, so generously provided
by Mr. James Cunningham. The happy nnd long lo bo reiiionilieied after,
noon and evening was spent by the
young people in innocent sports and
feasting, under the loving supervision
of the Christian temperance union
women. A few "honory members"
gentlemen, manifested their approbation and kindly furling by "dropping
in for their tea." During publlo school
vacation the legion ib also taking a rest,
looking forward to a more determined
opposition to the ranks of kiug alcohol,
in a few weeks'time, than ever beforo.
Now that the W.C.T.U. has a home of
its own, where it can bring up its family and provido entertainment for i<s
friends and the publio, it will unquestionably esert a powerful Influence for
good here, as it is doing in other places,
and Westminster is to be congratulated
upon this fresh evidence of moral ns
well as temporal advancement. Miss
J. Armenia Aokerman, organizer and
speaker for the California slate W. C.
T.U., a lady well recommended and

gospel temperance meeting in this cily
on Sunday 22 inst. nnder Ihe auspices

The church was erected in 1803. The
historical statement did not give tlie

cants, Mr. llobsoa's statement that for
two years tlio attendance had varied from
ill to 20 at the Sabbath services referred
to a time mentioned by liiin, when there
was no minister in charge and the services were conducted by the peoplo
themselves, which was about 18 months
in 1867-8. As a vindication of the intelligence of the building committee you
had better also give the correct inscription on the trowel:—"Presented to Itev.

Pre Bene Publico.
Editor Colombian.—I take advantage
of the offer of space in your columns for
freo discussion, pro and con, anent the
New Westminster b Southern railway
scheme. Sir, I will give my views ln a
few plain terms without comment, and
look to have them refuted if not correut.
I believe the southern railway is a necessity, as it will opon up and assist in
developing the best portion of the lower
Fraser valley, and communication with
the American system of railways will be
a benefit to the whole province; bnt tlie
price asked from the oity by the railway
company is in my opinion too large; aud
the way that the company propose to
spend the money is so vague, I believo
the city cnunot in justice to itself meet
the requirements, I think tho city, can
be liberal aud lose nothing; but the city
can also pay too dear for the railway.
8100,000 toward the forry and securing
all the workshops needed fer the use of
the railway, being built, placed and
operated in this city, might without in
jury to the oity be guaranteed on coin-
?lotion of the work. Lytton Square, tbe
leasure Grounds and ten water lots in
the upper partof the city might be given,
with a prospect of 1160,000 more when a
bridge to connect New Westminster with
the Southern railway Is completed. If
tho oity gives a larger bonus, or for any
other purpose, or to ho laid out in any
other mauuer, the city will injure itself,
and pay more than cau In reason be expected of it. Sir, when the Vanoouver
extension wu built the provincial government donated 0,000 acres of land to
the C.P.R.; when the Victoria and Nanaimo railway was built the government
gave a largo amount of land toward th*
object; when New Westminster branch
wu built the government gave 137,600
towards it. Tins Southern Bailway is of
morn importance than some of these
roads mentioned, snd is more deserving
of government assistance- than some of
tliem. Tlio oountry through which' the
road will pass is or a superior agricultural
quality aud capable of maintaining a
large population, This railroad will be
the means of settling it more rapidly,
and developments and trade most naturally inorease more rapidly. The farmers
would receive a direct benefit more .in
proportion than other places. > Now
Westminster must not expect to gain
more by the road than Vancouver, as
connection by extension of tho branoh
would make the chances equal Mr.
Editor, thore are r iny views, without
comment, and I maintain if this oity
pays any larger bonus, or .for auy other
purpose, kna to be laid out in any othor
way, with regard to the New Westminster and Southern railway, they will
pay too much for Uie benefit likely to be
received, and regret it. Look before you
leap. Give us tho railroad, but only at
its true value.
