NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tho latest thing in tbe way of
appliances for wholesale slaughter is
a torpedo shell, to be fired from a
dynamite gun. The shell ii of sold
drawn brass, seven feet long, and to
contain two pounds of explosive
gelatine. One application is guaranteed sufficient.
It now appears that the Visit of
the Kaiser to the Tzar meant peace,
and only peace; to cement the ex-
istingfriendship between themselves,
and to convince everybody else that
they nre the very quietest people in
the world. This is certainly
pleasant reading. It is to be.hoped
they will always continue in the
same mind.
'* Most people will be turprued to(
learn that there is a corner of Brazil, within 250 miles of the well
known city of Bio de Janeiro,
tho natives of whicli are cannibals.
They go about without clothing,
have no religion except a superstitious dread of thunderstorm!, and
are about as nearly absolute savages
as can be imagined,
A new York professor says that
fruit growers should study Uie habits
of insects and the nature of their
food, in order to be able to tell
friends from foes. Thu it excellent
advice, but the professor rather
dampens the ardor of possible disciples by adding that about eight
thousand species of insects may be
considered at fruit pests,.
It is stated that an English engineer bas invented a machine by
whioh pure hot air is derived direct
from the combustion of coal. That
is, instead of smoke and choking
fumes, the burning ooal gives off
hot air which can be inhaled with
safety and comfort. Dealers in
heating stoves should buy short until they have hod a chance to look
into this thing,
ing the natural color of flowers
pressed for preservation, which
may interest some of our readers.
Dust salicylic acid upon the leaves,
removing the powder with a brush
when the petals are dry, or make a
solution of one part of the acid in
fourteen of alcohol, impregnate cotton well or blotting paper with
this and lay ii ^^a^ubtitosi
the llowers   when' pressing.
Ool. Ingersoll has been devoting
his eloquence—and he can be eloquent when he tries—to praise of
whisky, whioh he calls liquid joy.
Of course the particular whisky in
question is something extra super-
line ; although probably it would produce a very average tort of drunk.
In this "Bob" is quite consistent—
he believes that men die liko beasts;
why, then, should they not make
beasts of themselves while they are
alive 1
We are becoming luxurious indeed, in these latter days, AU our
artificial lights, including the electrio, are condemned as radically defective in two directions, They
create too muoh heat and they ar^
"concentrated fire of glare." The
light of tho future it to be an imitation of the glow-worm and the firefly. The problem for the chemists
and inventors is, the artilical production of Ihe organic matter which
is tho source of light in those insects, and its application. A light
which would diffuse itself—sufficient everywhere, intonse nowhere—
nnd which would create no perceptible heat (and, of course, set
nothing on Ure), would be a "big
thing" for the man who got a patent on it.
The South Amerioan earthquakes
uro amounted for. It appears tlint
tho Andes are gradually sinking
into the bowels of the earth—literally into, not spreading out at the
base, but going right down. The
city of luito, the highest on lho
globe, has been making an average
dncliuo of over seven inches per annum far a century or more. A farm,
the highest inhabited tpot on the
Andes, over half a mile higher, perpendicularly, than luito, has been
coming down at the rate of almost
too feet ii year. The theory ii that
the enormous mass of mountains
(greater in proportion to iti bate
than any other in the world) is too
heavy to be upborne by the earth's
crust, and so is gradually settling,
Try to imagine what would happen
if tho bottom should drop out one
of those days, und the mountain! go
flop into the molten matt which is
supposed to form the interior of
the earth 1

LAST NIGHT'S DKSPITCHKS.
AKOTHEB IHKEAIK.NEII LITTLE WAR.
London, July 28.—The new. from
Zululand i. disquieting. The quarrel
between U.ipebu and Cctewayo's ion,
Dinizitu, whioh wem«4 'J. one time to
be little more than* an affair forthe
police, has assumed so serious an aspect
that all Ihe available troops in Natal
have been hurried across the Tugel.,
where 1400 men from Oapo Town are
already encamped. The original es-
plaiiBtion of the outbreak was that a
feud had arisen on account of cattle
stealing. There have been depredations of thi. charaoter, no doubt, but
it is to be feared that one must go behind then if the true origin of the disturbance is to be discovered.
The two forces which have coma into
collision represent interests which have
been in sharp conflict ever since the
dismemberment of Zululand. Usipebu
ia chief, and when Cetewayo, after his
deposition, became embroiled in those
troubles, whioh in the end overwhelmed him, Dinzutu cannot be ignorant of
the events which precipitated tho ruin
of his father, and he il surrounded by
men who have not forgotten the official favors which the British authorities have extended to Upsipobu in arrangements which hare, from time to
time, been made with a view to securing peace for tho country, but the
young chief hot behind him a still
more dangerous influence. The Boer,
of the new republic humored him on
the death of his father by recognizing
him as the king over a particular lection of country, and even by besring
* part of the iharn ceremonial, of his
coronation. later on the chief was
shocked at the, rapacity of his Transvaal pstrons and an estrangement took
place, There seems good reatoh, however, to believe that a working alliance
has been arranged between tbe Boers
and the Usutus. Scouts from the
British force state that ther. is a large
body of whitemen from Dinzuta, and
that one of them acta ia second in
command. It is the policy of tho Zululand Boen to foment disturbance in
the country and it will be difficult to
convince Englishmen that tbey are in-
nooent of complicity in * the present
lSngfiiE'ilatesmen admit that present
events in Zululand may alter the whole
future of England', connection with
South Africa.
TO-DAY'S DESPATCHES.
aiAvr kaiss.
Nouales, Ariz., July 30,—Heavy
and continuous rains, and railroad
washouts in thi. section are unprecedented. All trains on the South Pacifio

from Tralee with three laborers in a
car yesterday, was shot no» Listowel,
Kersy, by two disguised men who
jumped over the fence, fired and
escaped.

Considerable commout has been
elicited from various quarters in the
matteRof the liquo* lioense granbrd
to: ■■am Banif G.P.R. hotel by Vhe
Dominion government, and stated
to be in contravention of the prohibition regulations of the Northwest.
The following explanation we take
from the Montreal advices of the
CUgtty Tribune, under date of July
27: "JiieutenanM-ovornor Royal
has been: interviewed bore at sonic
length relative to his policy in the
territories. Among otlier things ho
promises to promote the construction
of branch lines. His honor stated
that he was neither a prohibitionist
or believer in free trade liquor, but
in regard to Banff he wished to correct a misrepresentation. A section of the press had stated that
through him the hotel had obtained
an unrestricted perpetual license.
This was not the case. What the
hotol had received was a license to
Bell simply beor and wine subject to
tho samo restrictions as on the din-
ing cars. The promoters of tho
hotel, which was for coin mon benefit, had laid out thousands of dollars
to establish it, and the least the government could do had beeu done."
The United States fish commission, at present under the general
superintendence of Colonel Marshall
McDonald, commissioner, seems to
be in very eDioient working ordor.
in u supplement to Harper's Weekly,
dated July 21st, there is n very interesting historical sketoh of the
commissioner's work in investigating tho causes of the decrease of
fish, and tqe measures employed to
stock and restock the. waters of
rivers, likes, and the sea. The act
of congress, February ilth, 1871, explaining the functions of the commission on fish and fisheries, stripped of official language, was simply
—"Produce more fish." Twenty-five
years ago, says Harper's, "fish culture was tentative; little was known
about the habits of Iish. Lessons
were being sought in China, Thoy
had been wading for facts in inedi-
teval filh ponds." Abont 1859 practical thought had been given to
' trout culture. Professor Baun was
the first to take hold of the subject
of propagation by artificial means.
Many experiments woro made without muoh definite practical knowl
edge being gained. The present
commissioner, Colonel McDonald,
invented a mode of hatching in jars,
arranged on tables. Water is turned  on  to a aeries of jars through
work automatically. Each jar has
a capacity of from 50,000 to 60,000
shad eggs, Salmon and other kinds
can be worked in the aame manner
successfully. Through the patient
industry of the oommiuion the difficulty of transporting the young fry
has been obviated. By this jar
process the fruotiged eggs are hatched in transit By this means rivers
on the Pacific can be stocked with a
variety of fish unknown to these
waters. - In the article referred to
the scarcity of salmon in the Columbia river is attributed to over
fishing. The commission proposes
to restock the Columbia by artificial
means. They catch their own Iish
aud keep them in pens suitable for
the purposo, aud whon ripo strip tho
the male and female of their milt
and eggs, in the usual way, and mix
them in proper receptacles, ready for
batching. The results of Iish culture are nover immediate; it has
been found that it takes four years
to produce a marketable crop from
fish brood of the anadromous kind,
such as salmon. The United States
authorities appear to be determined
to preserve their -present valuable
fishing interests and to discover the
best moans for remedying the mischief that has been done in the past
by the cupidity of the canning corporations and the fishermen. There
is urgent demand for some immediate." protecting " and "" looking
into things" by the Dominion fisheries department with regard to the

come up the Columbia river by millions. The stream is very deep, nnd
a large percentage always succeed
in getting to the breeding grounds
in safety. When salmon arc running up a river they are constantly
on the lookout for small streams in
which to spawn. Also, wtere the
current is very swift, they are unable to make headway in tlie centre
of tho stream and consequently seek
tho moro quiet water noar the bnuk.
Of those two instincts, tho inventor
of tho fish wheel took1 a mean 'nd-!
vantage At the Cascades, for instance, whero the water is very
swift, ho Bets his wheel.' Here
come the fish, hugging the bank by
thousands—g.eat black fellows, from
two to four feet long, heading resolutely up stream. Nothing can

the preservation of species is ho-
whore bettor developed than in a
salmon. But in this instance it
proves his destruction. Now they
nre just below that widesptreiyl, fenco.
The ourrent which is rushing
through the flume and, turning the
big wheel at a lively pace .attracts
their attention. The upper fence,
which sets nearly square across the
stream, makes quiet water hero, and
this flow seems to como from the
bank. This, to tho salmon's mind,'
is evidently the mouth to a shallow
creok, Here is a spawning ground
to our liking, and up tliis little
stream we will go. So thoy crowd
up between the two narrowing fencos
toward the fatal wheel. The first
Iish reaches it, goes in with a rush
to overcome the current, is caught
by a bucket, and up he goes high in
the air, whilo every buoket brings
up another and another till there- is
a procession of ascending fish. At
the top the velocity throws the .fish
violently upon the platform, from
whioh ho shoots down the flume to
a great tank on the shoro. Hero
come the fish, crowding each other
forward to that busy wheel. None
can go under nor to one side. None
will go back. And once a school
starts for a wheel the owner can consider that he has a title del to the
entire lot One wheel will run a
cannery. Day and night, while the
run last, they oome flying up the
wheel and shooting down the flume
in a continuous stream. Fortunately there are but few places ou the
river where wheels can .be worked
with this result.   Whero  the   fish

few can be caught in this way. But
the men who control these points
are making fortunes. As it is, salmon are rapidly disappearing from
the Columbia. Many canneries are
idle this season and the fishermen's
price per fish is rising every year.
Surely this engine of destruction is
largely the cause."
While on the iish question wo
toko the opportunity of quoting
from the Livermore Herald, an Ani-
eriean paper, the following interesting account of that engine of de-
itruction known os the "salmon
wheel," which is responsible to a
large extent for the present condition of the Columbia river. If the
inventor of this "dead thing" on the
unfortunate salmon should ever take
it into his head to "want tho earth,"
we are afraid he would manage to
get it, even if he had to tow it over
and hitch it onto the moon: "The

A.spring raln-was falling genfcflMoa-
timiousiy, on Mrs, True's'garden. The
lately transplanted geraniums nnd petunias lifted their bends gratefully to tho
warm shower, nnd the fuchsias uud sweet
alyasum brightened under its influence.
If their mistress could have Been them,
she, too, would Imvo rejoiced, for tho
flowers were her children, petted darling.*.,
■ for whom no care could be too great,' no
attention too painstaking. Sho had
housed them in winter, set thorn out in
summer, trimmed, guarded, hung ovor
over them year after year.
Involuntarily ono looked for her mild
face at tho window, smiling ont upon
them, bnt she was not to be seen. For
lho secoud time only f n her lifo Mrs. Truo
lay in her chumbcr, too ill to heed tho
pattering rain, or to think of tho plants
growing so fast in tho sweet, moist air,
even though, through the open window
of her room, both sounds and scents entered freely, tbe peaceful sounds and
healthful scents of the country. :: ■*■*■
It was very still In the, room where Bhe
lay; very still and orderly. The old furniture wns polished and speckless; tho
linen as white as snow; against the pillows, which had been a part of her bridal
outfit, rested the gray head, still neatly
cared for, and the face, with its pallor,
still wore a look of kindly impatience..
At her aide sat hor husband, good
Deacon True, with bowed head and sad
eyes; and in his work-hardened hand ho'
held her foeblc one. .    :       ,'A
Presently a footstep sounded on the
muddy sidewalk outside. Then the gate
latch clicked. Someone walked up the
path and tapped softly on tho houso door-,
and was as softly admitted.
But the two, with thair faces turned
toward each other, took no notice.
"How is she?" said tliu..neighbor down
stairs who had "dropped in."      ' ■  <
"Failin1," answered 'Fidelia Perkins,
tho maid of all work, temporarily on-
gaged for the emergency, . ^
"How's he?"
"Fairly beat out with grieviu'. Seems's
if he hadn't no heart for u.itin'ordrinkln-*
or.uothiii', Just settin' up thero olhago* ■
her, and 'hold In' her hand. I never did
hec folks set sech stoi-u by each other as
they do."
"Well, they havou't nobody else to sot
storo by, you sec," said Uio visitor, establishing herself by tho lire, and holding
out two substantial foot to tno blaze.
VHo, that's so," assented i'idelia, taking out her knitting. "Nov/ you just
make yourself comfortable, Mis' Clap.
I'm Teal glad to mc somebody. It's
dreadful lonesome here, Jest thoso two
still critters upstair.*:, and rttonnd the cat
downstairs, and no.thiu1 on earth to do.
Why, there ain't so much as a teaspoonful of dirt to Clean up nowhere in the
house. . I never did see such housu-
keepin'.'"
"She was a master hand for cleariln',"
said Mrs, Clapp, shaking her head
thoughtfully, "and 1131 say, there wm-n't
noabUdreutomakadiviiV •!■"■»(-
"Sfo, there watn't.'but tbvm points Is
about as bad, to mythinkin/ ohitiering'
up the place half the year, ami haviu' to
tn*_H around witii a water! n' pot, nnd
Weill*' awl sttwin' over 'em the vest of
th* time. She took _>. sight of comfort in
'eta, though.";
'.'Sho was a real good woman, Mis' True
wa»," sighed Mrs. Clapp, speaking already In the past tense. f
"And he's a powerful good man," /   "-'
"There ain't no^ettci-,"  C'u  ' rA
"Que_r_ecli gooflfoike hadn't ivTamily.**
"Well, they did have que'clilleV! ,j , .
"Oo tell?   I never heard of It before.
Boy or girl?"
"Boy, I. believe; law, Mls'.Tpne was
most tickled to death about'it. Sho was
as proud as an old hen wltb one chick,
but It didn't last long. I was sent for to
nurse her, and sho was n dreadful sick
woman, out of her head, just raving about
that baby; gofu' on abont what sne waa
meaning to flo for It. ■ \ -  *
"She had it alHAHMttt'Wtfora lifetime how she was a-goin'to rook him to
sleep nights, and -how, by and by, bo Was
agoin' to set to the table In a high chair
I alongside of her, and, finally* how he was
to take the farm aud lire with them always. Myl ahe was ramblin'on bo fast
and a smiling away to herself, while ths
rest of us—ma and tho doctor and the
deacon—was jent a-flghtln' for that baby's
life. And, at last, when she come to her-
self thero warn't nothln' bnt n dead baby
to shew her."
"Dear, dear I did sho take on much?"
said Fidelia, dropping her knitting in her
lap.
"Take on? Well, not like some folks.
Bhe didn't screech nor cry; but ehe jest
turned awful white, aud her eyes got big
and bad lookln'j it was enough to ha'nt
you to see 'em, and sho never said nothln1
to ine; jest moaned, and caught ahold of
the deacon's coat sleeve aa It ihe needed
Komethin' to comfort her. It did ■•em's
if her benrt was broko eure. Sh* never
had no more children."
"I guess that's why they've [been eo aet
on each other," mused Fidelia, 1,.
"Well, as to that, thero ain't no tellta*.
Some few folks nre so—considerate and
feelln'—but mighty few. Most married
folk get tired of llvln1 together, or, at any
rate, they appear so, to home. The deacon
and. Mis'True they'sbeon liko they was
u'courtin' all these years, He's done all
the chores for her that a mortal man
could do, and she's been as sweet tohim—
well, as sweet as one of them doves a-cooih'
nway out there on the barn,"
"Hark! What's that?" said, Fidelia*
holding up one hand, warningly.*     [j .
It was only tho sound of n weak voice,
above, and a deeper voice trying to answer soothingly.   ■      ■
While the two women had talked the
afternoon had waned. Tho rain aeemed
like fast falling tears. Tho flowers, some
of them, wore closing drowcijfy. The '
shadows were deepening. Tho light
green foliage of a birch treo near the.
house looked gray tn tne twilight,
Through the open chamber window
above souuded the sleepy trill of a bird,
safely - nuggled in his nest uuder Uie
youug leaves, *'_',
Curiously enough this tender noto
alone had tho power, to rouso tho dying
woman. She hod always1 been In close
sympathy with all fair helpless things,
flowers, young birds and Infants. Now,
in her extremity, this weak cry pierced to
her heart and woke her,
"Where's the baby?" she whispered.
"Why don'fcthey. bying the baby tt mef"
mitt was living over again her only siok-
new. ihe fanulod herself young once'
more, young-aud. filled with, a-strange
great happiness.      ' "    *'   *    •*
The years betweon had vanished,. They
were happy years, too, happier than most
people enjoy, for her desires had been
easily gratified, her ambitions wei'eot the
simplest kiud.     '
To live within- their smnll means;; to
lay aside a lilt\o friich year; to beep tho
house Immaculate ami the,, flowers thriving; to kuow peaceful nights aud quirt,
uneventful days; io help ii neighbor "iu
trouble; to sit in the village ohurch regularly on Sunday* Hud I* 1 .be aura that the

tender iiict^riiiy, and ull the da>s since
had'vbccn prospefrbhi ''ai»d';serene, unclouded hy one harsh look or word.
Kow, suddenly, sho wos young again, a
young wife in hir new home, with nil her
humble household treasures new about
her, and this thrill of expectation iuher
breast.
"Whore's the baby? Why. don't they
bring the baby to me?" she Repeated,
leaKctijv A: ■ l\ '■ ->'-.'•'
Her husband leaned forward, pressing
her hand in both of his.
^Tlio. babyf".he'said; "what baby?"
For him tho sad present had swallowed
up the past.
"Our baby," she whispered, with a look
of rapture In her faded eyes.   *
"Oh, I_ois!"
Ho bent his head still lower. Thnt
•shadowy child of theirs seemed hardly
moro than a dream to him. Ho had
never held it, or played with It, or talked
to it in imagination, as she had.
"His name Ib Joslah, for yah," continued thedyingwomnn.trying to tighten
her clasp of tho hand holding hers, and
looking earnestly up at him.
"He will belittle Jo. Perhaps bis oyes
nre like yours, and he will be a good man
like you,' I hopo. We will teooh him to
bo good, won't we?". -
"Yes, yes, Lois'."
"But why don't they bring him to mef
I want so much to hold him, only once,
for a little while. I won't keep him long.
I want to feci his littlo band on my face
and kiss his little cheek. Please tell them
to bring him."
"Hush, hush, Lois, dear."
"Perhaps they don't know where bis
clothes are. I laid them all ready in the
top drawer of lho bureau in tho spuro
rbom, his littlo-blue socks," nnd his shiit,
and the white slip—they -mid ho munt
wear slips at first,-not-drew**. Everything's ready. A boyj you's'aid,* Oh, do
let ■roe .hold him now."
Tho bid mau groaned aloud and tried to
quiet her, but without success. Out
doors a wind wns rising, a soft wind, fragrant with the bitter-sweet breath of
blossoming peach trees., ltslgtw.ll at the
open w.Udb\v, and Bwe^k'Hnfaen of tho
birch' tree against the upper panes,
Tho deacon tried lo rise, to close the'
glass, tut _.li6-movcd iihcasify as If tn-slt
up in bed. He put his arms out to support her. Shu hardly seemed to see or
feci ilium. Slowly her face grew radiant
with surprise and delight.
'"Ab, you have brought him to me at
last," she cried, wilh hands outstretched.
"Quick, givo him tome here, closp to iny
heart. Oh, how dear, how beautiful he
is. I hnd not thought he would be half
so beautiful."
She held her arms as If they encircled a
littlo form, and bent her face over them
in teuderest mother fashion-:,
"My baby! my baby!" she whispered,
then, with a sigh of utter content, sank
back upon her pillows.      .    .,..
The women downstairs listened for the
sound of voices to begin again, expecting
to bo summoned, but no such summons
came.
Night and darkness fell in the garden
and closed about the house. Fidelia put
a lamp outside the chamber door and shut
the door quietly. She glanced toward the
bod where Mrs. True seemed to be asleep,
her husband, with his face buried In the
pillow, near her. Sho left all the ueoes-
sary articles for the night aud moved
away with a noiseless step.
The hours wen fon slowly and silently.
The stars shone ont In the sky at
last, while the flowers slept down

Constipation
Is a universal and tnn'sjj tronljlesrjiai-s disorder. It causes Jicadaclio, Mental Depression, Impair? tlio Sight and Hearing,
destroys tht Appetite, and, whon long
continued, causes I_'..'argeraunt of tho
Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Piles: Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayor's Pills.
For-a number of months I was
troubled with Ooativonoisa, In consequence of whioh I suffered from Loss of
Appetite, Dyspepsia, uud a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I was
compelled to wear a shade ovor them,
and, at times, was unable to bear exposure to tho light.   I was entirely
CURED BY USING
throe boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no
hesitation In pronouncing this medicino
to bo the best cathartic ever made. —
James Eceles, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, con-i
scmiently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Pilos, for yoaTS. Ayer's Pills, which
I took at the suggestion of a friend, havo
givon me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal of which has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly Improved my goneral health.—W. Koelor,
Amherst, Mass.
I suffered from Constipation, which
assumed such an obstinate form that I
feared a stoppage of the bowel*. Two
boxos of Ayer's Pills cured mo, completely.—D, Burke, Saco, Me.        ft

On Friday last as Mr. McBroom was

come down on tbe Royal City to revenge the killini* of Kit-Ms-Ooiil Jim,
and that it would be madness for him
to attempt to face the musio alone, Mr.
McBroom started oil' almost breathless
ly to give the alarm. He had not gone
oyer a few yards from hia house, however, when he discovered his mistake.
The cause of his fears was not any of

at the fire hall, when he might "easily
have escaped, as ho was unattended*.
On boing asked, tho lock-up kooper

authorities and to whiskey on his own
part. Mr. Moresby, warden of the

prisonor had been well-behaved with
him. The prisoner had 24 days of hia
originsl sentence unexpired. Mr. McColl (Corbould & McColl) prosecuted;,

In the case uf Michael Oarr, charged
with committing robbery wilh violence
upon the person of George Birnoy, mi
the Oth of May lost, the cuurt was informed that Itirney, the principal witness, bad not answered to hi. subprumt,
A bench warrant was accordingly issued to have him apprehended and
brought in from Vancouver, where it
waa understood he wss working. .
In the caso of AhChung,chargod with

the wound—a eut with »knifrr(liko the
knife produced in court) an inoh and a
half long and half an inoh wide, four
inches below the shoulder blade and a
quarter uf an inch lo the left of the
spinal column. The wound was
a serious one, and if it had
been hall an inch to either sido must
have proved fatal. .The injured
man, Ah Foy, then gave evidence on
his own behalf, Cum Yow acting as interpreter, and described the
occurrence circumstantially, to Ihe effect that the witness and the prisoner
bad lived in a cabin at Port Hammond;
that they were getting their breakfast
on tbo morning ih question; that prisoner found fault with witness for putting ton niuoh water in a bowl of rice
cooking on the slore and finally threw
both water and rice on the floor; some
hard words passed, and prisoner
stabbed witness iu ihe back with a
knife with which he (prisoner) wat
cutting up meat Mr. W, J. Horris,
the magistrate before whom the complaint was laid, deposed lo that effect,
and slated that both Chinamen were
working for lum and living in a cabin
on his farm at the timo if Ihe wounding; had always considered them guod
friends; the prisoner was supposed to
bo addicted to tho opium habit. Mr.
B. O. Webber, who arrested the prisoner, stated, among other thing., thnt
prisoner had complained that the
wounded Chinaman had attacked him
fint with an axe and a knife, and
showed a small cut on one finger in
support of his story. Ah Foy, on being
recalled, stated that the prisoner bad
out his own linger with a knife on purpose. Mr. McColl prosecuted. HisLurd-
ship reserved judgment until tomiir-
row.
The case of Michael Carr, alios Riley,
alias Fry, was then proceeded with,
and several witnesses were called and
examined, and tho court wss adjourned
about 1 o'clock until 2:30.
When tho court met at the time appointed George Birney, who had got
in frum Vancouver, was put upon the
stand. The evidence ill the preliminary examination of this case was published fully in the Columbian of May
10th. The reader will remember that
George Birney, an elderly man, who
claimed to bo a farmer from Peterborough, Ont., and had just eome into
town from Vaucouver, waa, on the
evening of the Oth of Mty, decoyed into a shack or cabin down in the swamp,
by four men, Carr, Henwdon,Dickson,
and another man; that he had supper
with those men, after giving them 50c.
tn buy eggs; nnd that afiersupper they
hud pushed him into a back room and
forcibly robbed him of a J5 bill and
two or threo dollars in silver, nnd then
fled, leaving him with his clothes torn,
his hands lacerated, nnd hisfaco covered with blood. The prisoner was ar
rested tho next morning at Mrs. Ho-
gan's saloon on Front st, in a half
drowned condition, having fallen
out of a canoe while trying to escape
during tbe night. Substantially the
same evidence was given as at the preliminary examination.; ' Justice McCreight said be would reservo judgment on thit rate as in the two pre-
viou. ones,, .until., to-morrow at 11
o'clock. ' Mr. MoColl prosecuted; the
prisoner was undefended,
Mr. McColl called the attention of
his lordship to tho fact that these were
the first caaos that had been tried here
under the "Speedy Trials Act;" that
the three easel had occupied only
about three hours, whereas had thty
been tried at tha assises they might
have occupied as many daya; and
atated that, in consideration ofthe
prisoners' oleoting to be tried in this
manner, and being undefended, that it
wat fitting that he, as crown counsel,
should urge upon his lordship to
take tho most lenient view of the esse.
Tlio court was then declared adjourned
until tu-tnorruw at 11 o'clock.

FROM THE_ SKEENA.
R.M.B. Caroline Arrives at Esquimau—
Nothing Startling I .uiu Ike Seat
or War.
By Telegraph.
Victoria, July 29.—H. M. S. Caroline arrived at Esquimalt from the
Skeena river this afternoon with the
latest news concerning the Skeena Indian troublo.' The Caroline arrived
at the entrance of the Skeena river on
the 10th inat. Information waa first
sought as to tbe condition of affaire at
Hazelioii, which is one hundred and
sixty miles from tha mouth of the
river and distant tin dsys by canoe.
A trader named Hankin, who arrived
the day before from Harelton, atated
that the reports about H.B.Co.'tagent
and othen wat totally unfounded,
with the exception of the missionary
at Hazelton. All white residents had
entered shelter formed by barricading
the H. B. Co.'s post. The Indians
were very threatening in demeanor
and were still greatly exoited ovor the
killing of Kit Wan Cool Jim by Cun-
stable Green, who is said lo be a deserter from the American army. It
was the opinion of Hankin that seriout
trouble would ensue unlets special police immediately proceeded to Hanrel-
Inn. Two more Indians had been
killed, cau.eil by sume tribal feud. A
letter from Cousin Ule Washburn, Hazelton, aent to the government, eon-
tains an account of the killing of these
two nen. An Indian named Tubas
shot hit father-in-law. Kit Wan Cool
Jim then went raving mad, threatening to kill the head chief of another
tribe. The latter claims thlt in self-
defense he waa compelled to kill To-
bas. Wsthburn and three constables
went to the Tillage and arretted him and
have him in charge at Hazelton.' Green
It also under arrest for killing Jim.
From tbe statement uf an Indian eyewitness it would appear that Green
wantonly shot Jim. The latter wat iu
a house with a dozen others, and twiie
asked tbe threo constables to arrest
him. He had a pistol in his hind md
they did not move. Jim suddenly
walked nut the back door, the constables tfier him. Green went out at
tbe front and almost collided with Jim,
•t whom, wheu he pissed, he thot in
the back. Jim lived an hour. He
claimed he wat about to give himself
into custody wben the shot wit fired.
Green't aetiun is generally condemned,
and he will lie tried far manslaughter.
The day after the arrival of the Giro-
line the steamer Boscowitz arrived
wirh Supt. Roycraft on board, and
after B'<mo difficulty in securing a crew,
six Indians, Roycraft and twelve
special constables started up tht river
fur Hazelton.' The trip will take nine
ur len days, and as soon at tht facta
are ascertained a messenger will be forwarded to Commandant Holmes, "0 "
battery, and, if trouble ocean, the
battery will at once start up the river.
If everything ia settled amicably they
will return to Victoria. The battery
are encamped at Port Essington, near
tha mouth of the river, are in good
spirits and pleasantly situated. No
accident has overtaken anyone ao far.
Officers and men are attired in brown
duok miners' clothing. The opinion it
general that the matter will be quietly
settled, However, it il asserted that
tho fact of a war vessel being in the
river and the presence of" C " battery
there will have salutary effect in deterring Indians from further outrsget.
