The Into Brigham Young, head of
the Mormon Churcli, was not a
model as a. religious teacher, but he
had a ready wit which was a great
help to him in hia remarkable
career. From some recent remin-
Uci'Dces we quote the following;
A cortain elder, while chopping
wood, had cut hit leg so badly that
it had to. bo amputated. Aa soon
as he waa able he came to Young
and stated his case lo him as follows ; "I have always been a good
Mormon; I have several wives and
a good many ohildren, and in my
present maimed condition I do not
know how I am to provide for them.
I believe truly that you' are Christ's
representative on earth, and that
you have all the power that he had.
If you like, you can work miracles:
If you like, you oan give me a new
leg, and now I ask you to do it"
Young assented to all the flattering
propositions as they were laid down,
and when the elder had finished
speaking he said; "lean give you
a now leg and I will, but I want
you to think about it, a little at
first. When the day of judgment
comes, wherever you are buried,
your old leg will find you out and
join itself to you, but if I give you
a new one, that will rise with you,
too, and the question is whether
you would rather suffer the inconvenience of getting along with one
for a few yeara hero or go through
all eternity with three legs." The
choice was quiokly made, and Brig-
ham Young's reputation as a miracle-worker was saved.—S. F. Bulletin.
A Costly reut, ir Tne.
The following details of a dinner
which was given the other day by a
New York lady may be read with
interest by people who want to
know the latest thing in .the way of
American  extravagance:
The dinner table was arranged
about a miniature lake, in which
palms, lilies and ferns appeared to
be growing, while tropical trees m
from the banks amid miniature parterres of flowers. Small electric
lights, with varicolored j
were arranged about the lake, and
electricity was introduced under the
water of the improvised lake and
caused to dance about in imitation
of vari-colored fish. There was a
fountain in the center of the lake,
and a colored glass ball,' HghteJ"%
electricity, spurted up and down a
jet of crystal water. There was no
cloth on the table, and eaoh of the
twonty courses served at the dinner
was placed before the guests on a
natural palm leaf. The wall and
room decorations—some of which
came from Florida and South Amer
fca-—generally were of smilax, ferns,
ivy and palm, mandarin, banana,
orange and other trees, Hanging
among them wero hundreds of very
small colored eleotrio lights.
The decorations of each plate cost
$30, the favors $60 and the menus
were painted to order at (10 apiece,
Ihe truffles came from France and
the strawberries cost  $7 05   per
bunch of five berries. Roman punch
was served in oranges hanging on
the natural trees, the pulp of the
fruit having been deftly removed, ao
that the guests picked the oranges
from the branches.—London Court
Journal.

From New York lo ■•».. Ayres.
The dsy is not far distant when
an all-rail line will connect New
York city with Buenos Ayres, tho
capital of Argentine Republic, in
South America. The plan is certainly feasible. An international
railroad cxtniiding from the
United Stains through Mexico, 0> n-
tral America, and draining South
America from one extreme lo the
other, must of necessity cement international Made on the American
Continent. Much more has been
accomplished in a realization of this
railroad project than is commonly
oredited. "Within the past three
years the South American Stairs
have actually built and surveyrtl
routes for at least one-third of tin*
distance, about one,thousand tnilrs
between Buenos Aynfi and Bogota,
the capital of Columbia, not five
hundred miles from Ue Lesseps'
Canal in Panama. Railroad connections aro already established between our country and the city of
Mexico. And the task of binding
the Spanish republics of the south
to Ihe Mexican Capital, though of a
stupendous character, is certainly
within the possibilities of engineering triumphs. The completion of
De Lesseps' great canal at Panama
will be a groat stimulus to the project. Undoubtedly tho gap of 1,000
miles btween the eity of Mexico
and the Panama   Canal   will be
closed by railroad coneotion as soon
as the commercial importance of the
interoceanic canal is established.
There would be, in that event,
about twenty-live hundred miles to
be built between the Panama Canal
and the termini of the railroads
leading northward from Buenos
Ayres. The difficulties in tho way
of u South American railroad are
no greater than the obstacles which
attended the building of the Union
Pacific twonty years ago. What
can be done in the next twenty
years may now appear fanciful and
hair-brained.—Omaha Bee.

THK CiMBOO H.OBBIRY.
Vicioei*, July 3.—The following
particulars of the Cariboo stsge robbery have been received. This most
daring robbery took place on Saturday
evening at fi o'clock about 26 mile,
above Soda Creek. The Cariboo 4-
horie stage, with J. R. Tate as driver,
wss on the bridge when two masked
men confronted him with a rifle and
pistol and ordered him to stop the
horses. They then compelled, him to
leave the stage and took the nek out
of the wagon whieh contained $3,500
in gold dust. He was then ordered to
get into his plaoe and drive on. One
of the highwaymen wore a dark calico
mask, the other bad a Hour sack
over his head. One man stood on
each side of the stage whon they ordered the driver to stop, and the largest man kept Tate covered with his
rifle until he drove away. There wore
no passengers on the wagon, and as
the dri.or had the reins in his hands,
he had no chance to uso his weapons.
The government agents are scouring
the country with a number of special
constables and all the Alexandria
Indians are hunting for the robber*.
A reward of (600 has been offered fer
their cspture. It will be a very difficult
.thing for them to leave that portion ci
the country and the news of their arrest mar. be expected in a short time.
Mr. F. S. Barnard, the managet uf the
stage line states, that he believes they
are the same men that robbed the Stage
a few years ago and succeeded in getting
clear with $4000. Mr. Tate's brother
was driving the stage at that time and
the robbery took place about 100 miles
below the scene of the robbery on
Saturday last.
RESOLUTION MKAK8 PEACE.
Peith, July 3.—In a speech yestor-
dsy Count Apponyi said: "Tho foreign papers again predict that we will
be forced to yield to Russia in regard
to Bulgaria. But the whole Hungarian
nation insists that it cannot allow even
the hundredth infringement of the
treaty rights of Hs Balkan neighbors.
We do not arrogate to ourselves any
special rights in the Balkans, but
neither ean we allow other powers to
assume greater rights than sre accorded
te them by the Berlin treaty. We
want peace. It is our firm conviction
that resolution means peace while
vacillation means long continued war.''
HIOHBISDERS   AT WAK.
Sah FrahoIsco, July 3.—War has
broken out in Chinatown again between
two powerful factions of tbe highbinders, A rich old pawnbroker, named
Ah Sing Surie, belonging to tbe See
Yun Society, purchased a good-looking
girl in Hong Kong recoutly and had
her shipped to San Francisco aa his
daughter. Somo hard swearing had to
be done to get tho girl through the
custom house. She was only 14 years
old and evidently a half breed. Several highbinders belonging to ths Gsh
Sell Sun Society of professional robbers
and perjurers corroborated Ihe pawnbroker's testimony, and ho waa allowed to carry off his prize to Chins-
town. Reports of lho girl's gnod looks
getting around, a rival highbinder,
named Dong Hung, a head man in the
Bo Sin '/.cv Sooiety, resolved to abduct
the girl, and on Sunday ni;;lit. accompanied by four armed cutthroats, he
burst into thb pawnbroker', lodgings
and carried away the bosttty, after
knucking tho old man tin the head so
that he was stunued fur an' hour.
When he recovered lie'cppr-uled in ihe

A young Belgian, Arthur Leissens,

He had a thrilling experience. He is
employed on the farm of B, Lelebore,
ami borrowed, with his employer's
permission, a boat of Justice Davidson,
but, unaccustomed to handle the oars,
he soon lost control of his craft ana
was carried down by the current into
the boiling, seething mass below. To
those who saw his perilous position, it
seemed as if he would be dashed to
pieces against the rocks, but some how
or othor he came through all right,
though he did not much relish his involuntary trip.

"Oh, Joseph, why did you'do that?"
Just as he did this, the charge in the
other barrel was seat through the old
man's neck. The nephew then dragged
the body into the slough and threw the
gun into the Tamarack river. Chovialkowski is 18 years old and was brought
up by his murdered unole, who always
treated him kindly. .

repeal the entire internal revenue tax

Canada is now old enough to vote..
The lusty young Dominion attained
ita twenty-first birthday on Sunday
last It has how passed through, or
may be presumed to havo passed
through, all the precarious incipient
stages of its existence, The croup,
the measles, the Boarlotina, and the
whooping-cough, are all now nearly
forgotten e'pqoh? in the ever receding
past bf this vigorous youth. The
Dominion, although young, is "big
for its age," and ia eyen now. drawing itself up to ita full height and
comparing measurements with its
"big brother" to the south, with the
gratifying result that in physical
bulk it exceeds the latter by several
thousand square miles. By the
time wo celebrate our lirst centennial,
as our American friends did a few
years ago, it docs not tako a very
prophetic vision or vivid imagination
to picture our standing among the
nations of the earth, should we ovon
partially justify tho promise already
given. But we need not look so far
ahead as that to gain an inspiration
for continued and united effort in
working out, under Providence, our
glorious destiny. Indeed, not many
of us would care to explore the future so far, for the most of us, with
Canada's present and illustrious
premier, who, despite some things,
has contributed largely towards
making hit adopted country what it
is, will be "looking down" upon the
then teeming and perfectly, consolidated provinces of the Dominion,
when as one great family they celebrate their first centennial: Five
years, however, in the present stage
of the world's history, will accomplish greater things than ten times
that period half a century ago, and
many who witnessed the natal day
of the Dominion will live to feast
their eyes upon a rich fulfilment of
the promises then and now given.
Washed by three oceans, drained by
magnificent rivers, indented by. inland seas, inlets and noble harbors,
diversified by mountain, prairie and
forest, each with its peculiar wealth,
besides the riches of lake, stream
and ocean, peopled by a heroic and
energetic race, whose history and
traditions are an inspiration, connected by bonds of patriotism and
mutual interest with the greatest
empire the world has yet seen, and
having friendly relations with a rich
powerful and kindred people to the
south, what may not the most moderate enthusiasm predict for our future; and we, who know our own
province bnt, can easily foresee the
honored place which this "gem of
tho west" shall hold in the coronet
of the Dominion.
arrogance by those administering the
law. If a community want a liquor
licenso, nothing can stop them, as
things are at present constituted,
from obtaining one. In, ordinary
fairness, when a community do not
want a license granted in their midst,
and unequivocally say so, nothing
should render it possible for their
wishes to bo disregarded.' If pro
vincial acts and municipal by-laws
do not provide for an equitable administration of justice and fair play
in these matters the sooner they are
modified so that they will do so the
better.
Constipation
Is a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Heodacho, Mental Depression, im]itiirs tlio Sight and Hearing,
destroys the Appetite, and, when long
continued, causes Enlargement ot tho
Livst, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Files. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pills.
For a number of  months  I was
troubled with Costtveness, in conse-
It cannot bo doubted that an injustice has been done in the matter
of granting the Fee liquor
license in Victoria recently. For
several weeks past tho press of the
capital has been agitating on the
question, both editorially and
through its correspondents. It
would appear that a license was
grunted to a man named Fee to re
tail intoxicating liquors, etc., in a
quiet residence neighborhood of Victoria, and contrary to the expressed
wishes of a great majority of the
residents of the precinct affected.
It is stated, too, that a magistrate
residing outside of the municipal
limits of Victoria was imported ■ to
assist the licensing boanLto foist
this obnoxious license upon a neighborhood which, being a community
of homes, very naturally protested'
against it. Such things have been
done on ths mainland in some ofthe
rural districts; but it is contrary to
the spirit and letter of the license
act, suoh wit is, for a magistrate
to ait upon a licensing board in any
municipality where he is non-resident. The Colonist blames the
mayor of Viotoria, who was ex officio
a member of the licensing board on
the occasion in question, for not
doing his duty in the matter and
protecting the rights of the people.
Commenting on the subject, the
Colonist lays: "Now we submit,
■tnd we have high authority for it,
that when the mayor sits as senior
or presiding magistrate in the licensing conrt, ho occupies a position in
Ir. similar, to that occupied by the
chief justice in the supreme court,
Instead of being less than an ordinary justice of the peace, he is, or
ought to be, more; and henco it is
that we contend his conduct in connection with the cose under review
is most improper and wholly unworthy the chief magistrate of the
oity. Thit It no question of party
or personality, or temperance. It
involves a principle high and snored
—the rightt of tho people; and if
we ure not very muoh mistaken, tbe
people-will make themselves both
heard and felt" We notice by our
exehanges that in eastern oities,
particularly in Montreal, the wishes
of the people are being overborne in
the same manner, tnd licenses have
been granted in residence neighborhoods, where they could havo been
refuted wi(h a very good grace,
where, indeed, as in Viotoria, the
vast preponderance of sentiment was
opposed tb their being granted. Certainly the wishes • of the people
should be respeoted in suoh matters,
To override their properly expressed
desires, On all sorts of , flimsy. pretexts, is nothing thort of insult and
Considerable  interest  is    being
manifested by our citizens jast now
in the very important matter of  a
universal system of wnter works for
this eity.   Several communications
have appeared in this paper  lately
on tho above subject, and the general feeling seems to bo that the city
should not be content  to  let  the
mattor rest where the  city   counoil
have left it by their action  on tho
Ilth of last month, when tho   final
proposition of tbo Coquitlam Water
Works Oo. was rejected, the report
of the   committee   which   was   received  on   that  occasion   by   tho
■council, setting forth that, "in tlieir
opinion, and after due inquiry, the
only system that would receive the
approval of tho ratepayers would bo
that the city should own   and  control tho same,  and  recommonded
that such steps be taken as. will result in the city acquiring such rights
with as littlo delay as possible."   It
is all very well to go  on  rejecting
proposals and making vague recommendations as to what  should  be
done, but will such a policy ever accomplish anything 1   Is  there   the
remotest  prospect   that  this  city
within a reasonable time shall "own
and control" an adequate system of
waterworks I   As to the ratepayers
not approving of any other  system
except the city owning and control-
ing its waterworks they have  not
had  a   fair  opportunity of saying
what they would approve of.   In a
matter of such vital importance  to
the city as the establishment  once
for all, and as speedily  as possible,
of a universal and adequate system
of waterworks, we  think   that  no
small body of men, even  if  representative, should be allowed to speak
for  the   wholo.   Each   nnd every
ratepayer should have a  full voice
in the matter, and should  havo nn
opportunity after a   thorough   and
public canvass   of the question, to
vote on a definite proposition.   This
is a question of the utmost  importance, and all should take  a  lively
interest and have a voice in the issue.   We  must  have waterworks
soon,   and  tho  sooner tbe better.
Our  city   is  growing   rapidly, its
wants are increasing proportionately.
Tho wells and local  springs   which
have sufficed heretofore are becoming polluted and will soon be sources
of disease  and death.   A sewerage
system is  urgently  required, and
better means of protection against
fire.   The    valuo    of    a     good
system     of    waterworks    as    a
protection     against      fire      was
instanced   in  a   small   way    last
Sunday at  Mr. D, Milligan's residence, wben what would have proved a serious conflagration before the
steam engine could have got on the
grounds, was extinguished by a small
hose attached1 to water  pipes with
which the house was supplied.   A
city like ours, situated  on  rising
ground, while  affording a beautiful
site and offering the very best natural drainage  facilities, does  not
constitute a good field for tho opera
tions of a fire engine, and there is all
tho more necessity for a perfect system of hydrants and fire-plugs and a
good head of  water  from an inexhaustible source.   It has been stated on authority based on accurate
data that the more favorable rates
obtainable on insurance, if such a
system of hydrants, A*c, as we have
outlined  were   established,   would
fully compensate for the increased
taxation whioh   tho  establishment
and maintenance of the water works
would necessitate.   The gain to our
oity besides would lie great in many
material respects, to say nothing of
the inevitable prestige acoruing as a
moral asset   It will be seon that
tho  Ooquitlam Water Works Co.
intend to proceed laying theii pipes
in any event, as their charter gives
them power to do, and our citizens
will   no   doubt avail'themselves of
tho water for domestio purposes.  It
remains for the ratepaycB to decide
whether it is in the interest of the
city to make some fair arrangement
whereby it shall be  supplied with
water for the flushing of sewers and
for protection against fire.   Whilst
we should  not   hand    the  city
over to the Coquiltam Water Oo. to
gain  these  ends (and they do not
ask that), still we should see to it
that no cautious stupidity or petty
jealousy should be allowed to stand
between Westminster and her best
interests.

Why   Upon  Occasion*   Women   Should
-     Drink Hot Milk. '-\_\
Milk heated to anuch abovo 100 degrees
Fahrenheit loses for timo n degree of ita:
awcetness dud density. No one who,
fatigued by ovor exertion of body or
mind, has ever experienced tho reviving
influence of a tumbler of t.his beverage
heated as hot as it can be sipped, .willingly forego n resort to it because of its
being rendered somewhat less acceptable
to the palate.
The promptness with which its cordial
influence is folt is indeed ' surprising.
Some portion of it seems to -be digested*
and appropriated almost immediately,
and many who now fancy that tbey need
alcoholic stimulants when exhausted by
fatigue will find in this simple draught
an equivalent that will bo abundantly
satisfying -and far more enduring in its
effects. "*^-
There is many an ignorant, overworked woman wbo fancies she oould not
keep up without her beer; sho mistakes
its momentary exhilaration for strength
and applies tbe whip Instead of nourishment to her poor, exhausted frame. Any
honest, intelligent physician will tell her
that there is more real strength and nourishment In a slice of bread tban in a
quart of beer; but if she loves stimulants
lb would be a very useless piece of information,
It is claimed that .some of the lady
clerks in our own city and thoso, too, who
' are employed .in respectable business
houses, are in the habit of ordering ale or
beer at the restaurants. They probably
claim tbat they are "tired" and no one who
sees their faithful devotion to customers
all day will doubt -tlielr assertions.   But
| they should not mist like beer for a blessing
lor stimulus for strength. A careful examination of statistics-will prove that
men and women who do not drink can en-
\ dure more hardship and do more wbrK
mid live longer than their kiss temperate
► neighbors.   Bufcr-
A man convince:! ngainst his will  '

fluid woman is wonderfully like him in
this respect.
Furthermore, when  a woman wants
anything, from a California trip to a
glass of toddy, ymj may vestjassufe'd that
luu* health will demand it, and it sometimes demands it so loud and so long that
her friends are glad to yield ia time to
save their own lives,
A tippling woman gets a pain or an
;ache on a short notice, and when sho has
a cold or a headache tho whiskey has to
""I suffer and tho drug stores in her nelgh-
khorhood do a thriving business. If hor ale
^disorder her stomach she depends npon a
dose of whiskey to correct its effects, and

snake iand elephant* 4*
What t Veracious Tmvoler Saw in India**
Iwent out from r,village one evening
with two companions to Uo in wait at a
pool for game. ■
The placo was the. resort of elephants,
^ and the sun hnd scarcely gone down before Ave of them, all full grown,'made
their appearance. They wero not over,
I fifty feet away, and as the short twilight
i was followed by a brilliant moon, wo
Tcould see each beast almost as plainly as
(it bad been midday.   «,
We were getting ready for a shot at the
'nearest when he backed tip to a tree
, about as largo around as a man's body
and began to rub himself. His actions,
* caused tho tree th wave ar iu a great'
I wind, and we were expecting to see it up-
I rooted, when the elephant suddenly ut-
j tercd a blast of alarm and tried to run
[.away. The others trumpeted and dashed
ploff, leaving him alone.
We could not at first mako out what
| had happened, bnt presently a native who
I had come out to us with food, crept up to
our hiding place and whispered that tha
r shaking of the tree had disturbed: -a'largo
r python, which, feeling insulted, had afr
| tacked the elephant      - ■••*■■
The beast was as large an(l heavy as
I tho average elephant seen with aclwus,
I and yet we saw him. pulled to his knees
I as many as four times. He made a dozen
I rushes to leave the tree, bnt tbe snake
|pulled him back each time,and two.ot
I three times came very near rolling him
I over. His tough hide prevented the oar-*
Ipent's fangs from inflicting injury, but
\vlth a coll or two around his body; and &
ail hold In the tree the python made a
Tptaythlng of the great beast tor fully a
kquarter of an hour. 'j-WJ* •-
W When at last, tho elephant did get
laway, he seemed half scared to death,
|and the feeling that we had hid a.close
Icall from being made victims sonnnerved
I each one of ns that we packed up and re-
' turned to the village.   — t
I assert iu all candor and honesty my
Iflrm belief that a full-grown python can
Ihold an elephant fast or roll him over.
[He might not be able to crush and kill
the big beast, but I lean to the opinion
; hat he could even do that, Ibelieve that
| three of hie colls around an object would
have as much strength as four men at a,
Bhlp's capstan.—New York Sun.

Owing to the holiday season freights
to and from Viotoria and on the
Fraser are much lighter then usual,
but the passenger traffic has been uncommonly large. The number of people from up river ports who visited
this city, Victoria and Vancouver during the paat week has been surprising.
The Irving this morning carried home
a great number of returning excursionists, and tho Rithet took to Victoria many Islanders who spent Dominion Day with friends on the mainland.

A reporter had a look this morning
at the samples of ore brought in by
Mr. H. G. McMicken from his mine
on Sultana Island, Lake of the Woods.
They certainly look lino. The gold is
sticking out all over the quartz, which
is of such a aoft and decayed character
aa to be easily Worked. Mr. Wright,
the publio analyst, says he is oonfident,
from the little lie saw of tlie ore, tbat
it will assay 130,000 to the ton. There
is no donbt whateyer as to the remarkable richness of the ore. As to the
sizo uf the lead Mr. McMicken aaya it
is colossal. The vein, he says, is at
least 60 feet wide, so thst Ihe deposit
is boundless. Mr. Pugh, of St. Paul,
who examined the lead last Monday,
was amazed at its wealth, and Mr.
McMicken says he wont away delighted
with the results.—Winnipeg Sun.
The Vanconver Ball
The citizens' ball last night at Vancouver wu a most brilliant and successful affair. Tho Hotel Vancouvor,
where the ball wus held, contained the
cream of the youth and beauty of the
province. The dancing room presented
an exceedingly pretty and animated
acene. About 10 o'clock Goyernor
Nelson and hia suite entered and almost immediately afterwards dancing
commenced. Tbe set of honor was composed of Lieut-Governor Nelson and

Jenraallstle Enterprise.
In the post-celebration hurry and
rush yesterday we omitted to notice
the Iateat departure of our esteemed
and energetic cotemporary the Vancouver .vews-^ifeermer. About six
weeks ai*o the News, then a four-page
paper, altered its shape, reduced the
size of its pages, and came out a six-
page paper. By thia move it added
several columns to the aggregate mako-
np. On Dominion day the News came
out for the first time as an eight-page
and promises to continue in this form.
While the roading has been increased,
we observe that the greater part of the
new apace is taken up by the advertisements of Vancouver'a enterprising
and wide-awake citizens. They evidently recognize the fact that no catchpenny style of advertising pays so well
aa advertising in a live daily paper.
They aeem too to appreciate tho truth
of the adage that "the character of a
people is shown by their journals,"
and accordingly, from the standpoint
of self-interest probably, make some
endeavor to give the News tbe support
it deserves. We congratulate our co-
tomporory upon thia latest evidence of
its determination to keep well abreast
of the times.

A Fair Opinl.a        '
Tho people of Westminster, B. 0.,
havo beeu recently rejoicing ovor the
arrival at that placo of tho first oceangoing ship to load lumber for export.
Heretofore the mills on the river havo
boen at a disadvantage, on account of
their inability to secure oeeun vessels
to ascend the river. With the completion of the improvement*! to navigation, being made by the Dominion
government, the importance of Westminster will be greatly enhanced, Already Rosa 3c McLaren have definitely decided to establish a large saw mill
at Westminster, with a capacity of
300,000 feet daily, for the export
trade. Thia will be tlie largest mill on
tho B. C. coast. Westminster has
many natural advantages, and with the
navigation of the river made certain id
all classes of vessels, the prospects of
the place will be vastly improved. The
Dominion government has been very
slow about carrying out the improvements at the mouth of the Fraser, and
is now only doing Ihe work in a half
hearted way, altogether out of keeping
with the importance of the undertaking. Eventually, however, the navigation of the Fraser will certainly be
made safe, to even the larger oceangoing vessels. The Fraser is the great
water-way of British Columbia, and it
seems very dilatory on the part of the
government that tbe alight obstructions at the mouth of the river should
hsve been allowed to remain so long^in
hand.—Winnipeg Commercial
Mr. W. R. Lazier, Bailiff, be, Belle,

used in my stable I have used it for
bruisos, scratches, wind puffs and cuts,
and in every case it gave tho best satis*
faotion, We uso it as a household remedy for colds, burps, be, and isaperfeot

m
A>ew rarest
Not in Westminster yet, although
ihore will be probably, when some ol
our enterprising capitalists eau make
up their, minds to "blow in" about ten
or twelve hundred dollars a month for
the "fun" of keeping ono going. The
new paper to which wo refer hoB been
started in Seattle, W. T., and is
colled the Morniny Enterprise, It is
a four-page, eight'column, enterprising
looking sheet. The proprietors say
they expect -to put a good deal of
money into the £»f«-**ri*ar before they
get anything out, but they are just
"busting" with lsrge and patriotio
ideas and are prepared and willing
to sacrifice themselves for their country. We notice that J. S. McQuade,
who has many friends in this city and
in other parts of the province, occupies
an important position on Iho reporto-
rinl staff.
         . ;	
A Jim U.\n dul Rest.
It isn't often that the over-worked
and poorly paid "typo" lays himself
out for a day of genuine enjoyment,
but when he doea (and the occasion is
rare) 'he generally manages td absorb
all the fun that is left around carelessly, and in fact anything else he may
chance to get hia hands on. A typo of
this city, well known as a testive
swain, psoked up bis four Saratoga
trunks and proceeded by Sunday's
train to the new and rising city of Vancouver, there to enjoy himself in eating and drinking and in the study of
human nature on a Dominion Day excursion. Tho typo is not without
friends, no matter what some people
seem to think, and our representative
had no soonerlanded than he wus corralled by a deputation ofthe "union"
and dragged np town to see the sights.
The beautiful decorations with whioh
the city wap embellished pleased his
artistic eye and the numerous legends
hung over almost every second door
filled his soul with joy, aud great were
the anticipations of pleasure that
surged through his mind as be thought
of the morrow. The idea of seeing
those besuliful streets thronged with
a bright and happy crowd eager to indulge in the harmless pleasures of the
day was a sort of intellectual feast for
which he pined, aud, philosopher
though he is, the typo actually grew
impatient for morning and even went
so far. as to blame Father Time for
not - skipping ' the interval - and
proclaiming Dominion Day at
once. Well would it have been
for the guileless typo had his
wishes been realized I It is well
known, and has been proved a thousand times, that tho wisest of men
have been led astray, so it is not to be
wondered at if a trusting and susceptible typo, far from-home and friends,
snoulu'foll a viBtitn to the wiles thai
have doomed more experienced men.
The friends spoken of above induced
our typo to enter a gorgeous palaoe,
over the door of which hung a sign
announcing rest and refreshment to
wearied man. The gorgeousness of
the interior was a little too much for
the homespun ideas of: a poor disciple
of Caxton, and' in attempting a few
minutes later to leave the-ntabliahment
he got bewildered, and, sinking into a
convenient coal box, quietly remained
there till his mind was elesr again.
When next tile typo opened his eyes
broad daylight welcomed him to wakefulness: With a cry of joy he sprung
up and rushed outside lo fulfill his anticipations of the pleasures'1 of Dominion Day. But what was his surprise
and djsmay to see crowds of men busy
tearitig 'down tho beautiful decorations
-—those that had filled his soul with so
much delight. What did it mean 1
Had tho celebration been abandoned 1
No t It simply meant that the typo
had been aaleep for two days enjoying
a " much needed rest,"
Police court.
Before T.|0. Atkinson, P. M., and p. McTiernan, J. P.
John Burke arrived on the 7.40
train last evening from Port Moody in
a rather advanced stage of intoxication.
Feeling too fatigued to wall: up to tho
Colonial, where he had secured a suite
of rooms, Mr. Burke luy down on the
Door of the waiting room and fell inlo
a gentle snooze. Mr. Anderson, the
C. P. R. agent, ia not allowed to keep
a boarding houae in the station and it
was hit duty to remonstrate with Mr.
Burke on the impropriety and impossibility of spending the night there.
Remonstrances wero useless—he hod
made his bed there and did not intend
to move. As a laat resort a constable
was sent for and the gentleman from
Port Moody was enticed to the lockup.
Fined $2.50 or 10 .days in gaol.
Poter Mendelssohn, au Indian with
musical proolivities, from Fort Rupert,
arrived in town u few days ago from
hia northern home to join in the salmon fishing. Having a few daya at bis
disposal and a few dollars to enjoy
himself with, Peter decided to get
drunk in the good old-faahioned style.
Through the kind assistance of an accommodating Chinaman he was enabled
to procure several bottles of eloquent
fire-water with which he immediately
proceeded to celebrate Dominion Day.
Peter managed to carry off bis private
celebration in characteristic siwash
style till last evening, when, having re
oeived a fresh supply of whiskey, he
became uproarious and insisted nn
danoing a Hydah can-can, for whieh
innocent pastime he was cruelly packed
off to jail. Fined 925 or two months
in gaol.
Jas. Beckmain got homo from Vancouver last night in a rather delapi-
dated condition, having brought the
celebration at the terminal city to a
very successful close. While wending
his erratic way homewards a kind
friend informed James that the 4th of
July wu at hand, and, as his brilliant
doings in Vancouver hod gone abroad,
a select few of the stars and stripes
persussion had resolved upon his (Mr.
Beckmain) doing the honors of the
glorious occasion. James accepted
the leadership of the jovial throng and
immediately sallied forth to muster
his recruits. The night was dark so
it is not strange that James fell into
a policeman's arms and wu conveyed
to the lockup.   Fined $2.60 and costs.
Personal.
O. W. Chadsey, of Sumas, is in the

Dr. I. M. McLean returned to Uie
city to-day.
W.iH. Ladner, M. P. P., came up

W. L. Cusack, of S. J. Pitts & Co.,
Victoria, is stopping at the Colonial.
Mrs. Homer returned this afternoon
from a week'a visit st Vancouver and
Moodyville.
We regret to announce that Mr. Ju,
Punoh, reeve of Surrey, is confined to
his bed by illness.
Mayor Dickinson arrived baok from
Vancouver this afternoon, where he
had been attending the citizens' ball,
J. Peok McSwain, "snske" man on
the Columbian, returned from the
Vancouver celebration lost night. He
reports having had a "hiyu" time, and
we suspect he had.
J. 0. McLagan, who has been on
the stall'of Ihe Viotoria Times for several years has severed his connection
with that journal and will take up his
residence in Vancouver. Mr. McLagan is a journalist of much experience, having entered the profession 34
yeara ago and has been connected with
it ever since. His departure from
Victoria is generally regretted.

An Important Queillon.
Eniron Columbian.—Another of the
great questions of the day which Is forcing itself upon us is temperance or prohibition, and, whether we like it or not,
we have got .to face tt aad settle It one
way or the other. This is net a new
question, although it has often assumed
new features, and, like every other
thing with which man ha. to do, it haa
been used by hypocrites u a moans for
personal promotion and selfish ends. It
hss become a big factor in politics in all
free, civilized communities; it has even
Intruded itself into the church, and ia
likely to cause u much division there as
the ijnestion of slavery did in the US.
In a late number of the Canada Pretliy-
<c.rian—e weekly journal published In
Toronto, under the auspices of the Pros-
byteriau church—appears an article under the general heading "Our Contributors" on the "Church and Prohibition."
The writer Ir. the Presbyterian is evl-
dently well acquainted with the Bible
and has made a very judicious seleotion
of texts te try ud prove that "prohibition (as he declares) u nothing hit a delusion of the evit one." His first quotation
from the Bible is the case of Noah when
he 'drank wine and wu drunken."
"But although dircotly under the direction of God himself, he wu net forbidden
to take it again." Tlie next quotation
he takes from the case of Lot—"a most
aggravated oase—and yet he is not told
not to take it again." He quotes Mel
oliisedek treating Abraham to bread and
wine, and instances "Jacob deceiving his
father Isaac by the uso of wine," He
quotes from Zechariah and says that "we
have a wonderful prophecy when young
men and maids shall be mode cheerful
by new wine." He quotes when Timothy
was advised to take "a little wine for
his stomach's sake and his often infirmities," but he takes good care not to quote
anything on the other side of the question, for instance, what Paul said about
"abstaining from anything that might
mako his brother offend." But the funniest quotation ot all (to prove the
harmlesness of intoxicating drinks), is,
whan bo winds up by quoting: "Not
that which goeth into the belly defileth a
man," Ao. This writer ud contributor
to the Cantata Presbyterian is evidently
in favor of free whisky, (u we would
call it in B.G.)   He may be a clerical
Sentletrau for ought w. knew, and ao
oubt has often been Inspired to bis
heart's content by a thimbleful or two of
good Scotch whisky, or may be he Is partial to the Irish potheen. But be that
as it may, he Is a contributor to a weekly
journal calling itself the Canada Presbyterian. It Is widely circulated throughout the families connected with the Presbyterian church, and u Presbyterians
are'rather conservative in their support
of constituted authority, anything that
emanates from supposed good authority
is apt to be reoeived without a doubt;
it can be easily seen, then, what a power
against prohibition the Canada Presbyterian ohurch is likely to be, if such
literature u this pass current amongst
the great body of Presbyterians.
OBsxnvgn,
[Our correspondent may be very much
mistaken u to the position of the Presbyterian Church In Canada with respect
to the temperance question. Ths writer
in the Canada PresbyUrim, te whioh he
refers, Is evidently opposed to prohibition, but, according to the final vote on
the prohibition question before the general assembly, lately in session at Halifax,
that body stood 149 for prohibition to 10
against it. We cannot but agree with
our correspondent that thia prohibition
question is going l*%e the greet question
of the day both In Canada, the United
States, and England.—Ed.]

Quebec, June 28.—The "resolutions
to ratify the agreement between the
government aud the Jesuits, regarding
compensation for the cstatee confiscated
at the time of the conquest, was moved
by Mercier in the assembly this afternoon in a long speech. Hall and
Owens, ou behalf of the Protestant
population, denounced the opening of
the question, particularly that portion
giving final settlement to the Pope.
The resolutions, however, were passed,
and a bill introduced on them read a
first time.
Post Aramm, June 29.—The Wolverine and Grace silver mines and the
Western End Silver Mountain range
have been sold to English capitalists
for large sums,
Toronto, June 29.—Alfred Peck-
ham, employee of the post oflice, wss
arrested to-night for robbing the mails.
He was caught by a decoy letter.
Cbioaoo, June 29.—Tho first trans-
Atlantic vessel whioh over arrived at
Chicago steamed into tho river to-day
and tied up ut the piers of tho Chicago
it Northwestern Railway, near State
stroet. It was the Rosedsle, which
left Sunderland, England, one month
ago, brand new from the shipbuilders'
yards. She brought a cargo of Portland cement from London. It wu
re-shipped at Montreal and Kingston
to get here through the Wetland canal.
The Rosedale is a propeller and a very
fast one. She will not un back to England, but will be kepi on the great
lakes to be run between Toronto and
Port Arthur.
Halifax, July 2.—A serious difficulty confronts the projector ol the big
Joggins raft. There is an export <*ut7
of (1 per thousand feet on logs taken
out of the country by vessels, and the
government intend to levy it on the
lugs in the raft. This would amount
to nearly (2,000, and Mr. Robertson,
the builder, is going to Ottawa to see
what can be done.
Montreal, July 2.—A slight shock
of 'earthquake passed over this city
about 4 o clock this afternoon. It wss
almost imperceptibly felt in the city,
but in the cemetery several graves on
the slope of the hilt were cracked and
considerable consternation wss caused
in the country.
Quebec, July 2.—Among; the ll60
passengers by the Polynesian were 00
boys, sent out by the Catholio Emigration Committee under the patronage of
Cardinal Manning, bound for Toronto
and the west, as well as a large number
of Scandinavians.
