SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Norway has morn earthquakei
than is generally supposed. Dr.
Hum Iteusch records 23 for .1887,
nil but three, however, being very
slight.
Prof, Pickering, of tbe Harvard
College Observatory, regard, the so-
called "canals" of Man as areas of
vegetation—possibly immense cultivated tracts. The canals an usually
some 30 to 150 miles broad by 2000
or 8600 miles long-, and mott of
them appear in parallel pain.
A curious monstrosity lately exhibited to the Royal Horticultural
Society, is nn Alpine strawberry in
which nil the parts of the flower are
moro or less represented by leaves.
The plant was described,, by old
botanists, but had come to be regarded as a myth until its reappearance in recent yean.
Observations at 67 stations in
Spain show enormous differences in
the annual rainfall, which is no leu
than 138 inches on the Serra da
Estrella, and only 11 inches at
Lerida, in Catalonia. The minimum
rainfall at all station! occurs In July
and August, and the maximum fan
at some stations in May and at
others in October.
Combined Anaesiiiktics.—Ohio
inform and cocaine have been used
together in twenty-four surgical
operations by Prof.' Obalinski, of
Cracow. Most satisfactory results
are reported, the advantages claimed
being: A smaller quantity of chloroform is sufficient; vomiting is very
rare; and the depression on awaking is much slighter than when chloroform alone is used.
An Expebiment is Evolution,—
A striking illustration of the influence of environment on animal
forms may be quite easily produced,
according to Pr^Winslow Anderson,
If the embryo of the land salamander be taken from the egg and kept
in water of moderate temperature,
abundantly supplied with oxygen,
and amply fed with small water
animals, the organism is remarkably
ohanged even in a lingle generation.
Theembryonio lung, remain undeveloped and gills grow instead, a
rudder toil and even fins are gradually developed for the sew function
of swimming, and the unnecessary
feet and legs become mere rudimentary appendage..
As- Othir Woitlns See Us.—
Throughout the long night of 354
hours, the tide of the moon toward
us is lighted by a magnificent reflector of the sun's rays. Always
remaining in one fixed spot in the
heavens, while sun and stars go
in regular cycles of 29 J terrestrial
.days, the earth—as the moon may
lee it—panel - through the - phiies
from fint quarter to full and to lut
quarter to full and to list quarter,
shining at the lunar midnight with
a light fourteen time, stronger than
that of our full moon. To our satellite, gravitating around ui at a distance of 240,000 miles, the earth
then appears four times si broad
and thirteen times as great in area
as the moon appears to us. As daylight speeds over this part of the
moon, the earth dwindles away to a
thin crescent and finally disappears
at the moment of new earth. Passing to its sister planets, we find the
earth has lost its imposing appearance. To Mercury, 37,000,000 miles
from the ian, the earth is an external planet, having the light of a
first magnitude star, and analogous
with Jupiter ai seen by us; to
Venus, 68,000,000 miles from the
sun, our globe exceeds the itan in
brilliancy, and hai a perceptible
diameter, with the moon plainly
visible near the disc. To Hars,
146,000,000 miles from the lun, tlio
aspect of the earth ii very like that
exhibited to ua by the beautiful
planet Venus; but to the giant Jupiter, 495,000,000 miles from the
sun, our world ii only n feeble stnr,
always keeping within 12° of the
mn. To Saturn tlie earth is separated from the sun by 6', to Uranus
by 3", and to Neptune by but 2°.
"Immersed in a luminous fusuielti of
solar rays," says Mons. J. Lroturil,
"our globe is entirely invisilalo to
those luttor planets of the system to
which it belongs. The earth is unknown to these worlds, whioh are
relatively near and are connected,
like it, with the destinies of tho sun;
and the existence upon it of the intelligent race which believes itself to
be alone in- the universe is unsuspected. To these planoti neighboring our own we do not exilt, Seen
from the nearest of the stars, the
enormous sun that illuminate, us ii
itself no mora than a minute star,
wandering in the infinite labyrinth
of the worlds."

London, Sept. 7.—SirCharleiTupper'i
tneech attracts a mod deal of notice in
all the paper! to-day. Generally speaking the tone of Sir Charles' icmarki is enthusiastically approved. The Standard
declares that England has the right to
expect that Canadians will be careful and
not involve her needlessly in tlifficultiei
with foreign powers when it is possible
to .void them, but rather to offer conciliation or legitimate concession. In
return Canada will be certain to receive
full encouragement and the support of
Great Britain in her resistance of unlawful aggression.     ':,

Prom a Traveller.
On arriving at this renowned old
time sawmill village we wen directed to the hotel—a very neat and
well-kept house—when we were welcomed by Capt. Powers, a courteoui
and genial host, who leemed to be in
hii element when giving information
to hii guests. The general appearance
of the town ia about the same that it
wii8 or 10 yean ago, but the old
residents have mostly pasted away,
lome to land! far distant, whilst others
are sleeping lilently their but ileep.
The inhabitants amuse . themselves
principally during fine weather boating, md the placid waten of the inlet
an invariably thickly .studded with
various crafts in the evening of the
day.and even after nightfall.

The remarkably good Salmon run on
the Skeena thii year and the failure
on the Fraser has led to a good deal of
discussion among interested parties.
At hat been stated in the Times',
aome people uy that the fishing it
being overdoue on the Fraser. While
the fish are running two or three hundred neti are down night ind day and
there it no chance for the: necessary
number to reach the spawning ground.
At the Skeena it is different. They
cm only fish there it a certain itage
of the tide so thit there ii plenty of
opportunity while the boat, in drawn
off for the ulmon to go up md lay th.
foundations for « future supply. No
doubt many of the theoriu which seek
to account for poor runt an all wrong,
but at the nmo time thi history of all
riven it that they get fished out and
how to prevent it ii the question to
consider. The salmon Industry ii too

the: glwmily. rossontio and once
myitery-enihrouded domain of "the
great lone land." Regular eteam
rnrfgation-har at length penetrated
to the Arctic circle. Tlie Hudson's
Boy Company, grown hoary in the
'•fork of pmeaaingyliBa placed a
Itoamboat, the Atbahaiki, on the
route from Lake Athabaska to the
Lesser Slave Lake. On her fint
trip, made on the 12th August, she
took on seventy-two tons of freight
at Athabaska Landing, a good earnest of the future traffic of that distant region. Senator Hardisty and
a party from Edmonton wero on
board, a proof of the interest whioh
the western-most town east of the
Rocky Mountains takes in the extended navigation of tbe north. In
lending its aid to penetrate to the
Arctic circle by steamboat navigation, says the Monetary Times, the
Hudson's Bay Company is loosening
the bonds of the practical monopoly
that it holds of the fur trade in that
region. It must look for compensation for this 60orifice to the needs of
advancing civilization, by the extension of other phases of the commerce in which it is also engaged.
The new steamboat, while it will
afford facilities to the rival fur-
trader, will also accommodate the
explorer, the miner, and the hopeful
agriculturist, a little out of iiis latitude. The Hudson's Bay Railway,
an enterprise which is in a fair way
for being taken inhandin Manitoba
very shortly, will prove a great developer of a certain section of the
Canadian North-west nnd furnish
in important link in a new and convenient trans-Atlantic route. Altoge-
ther,itisinteresting toreflect upon the
transformations which the lost decade or two has wrought in the
"great lone land." What will not
the next ten yean bring forth!
Thursday a communication and
an item appeared in this paper on
th. subject of the furious riding
through the streets of the butcher
boys. The immediate cause for
particulir attention being attracted
to this custom wis the rather unpleasant mishap which befell Mr. J.
B. Kennedy, of the Brunette Sawmill., on Thursday morning, as the
result of an abrupt eolliiion between
hii tMa*w''.'sM''''l''.:g|LllDping beef
charger. The eireumatanoes as narrated ihow that Mr. Kennedy wai
driving down Oolumbia street in
his carriage, when, a butcher boy
on honabaek iwept in from a cross
street at full gallop, and. failing to
check himself or make the sharp
turn luccessfully, struck Mr. Ken-
nedy'i hone broadiide, with the
natural remit that the ocoupant of
the carriage v/as violently and with
out any warning thrown to the
ground. It would be waiting words
to say that the.accident might have
proved very, serious. It is fortunate
for all concerned that it did not do
so. If a pedestrian, a woman or a
child, had chanced to bo in the way
instead ot a hone and carriage, we
leave, the reader to imagine there-
suit. We have called, attention to
this matter again, because it is one
that, is likely to be overlooked and
lightlydiimissed. It ihould not be
dismissed however, without stringent
regulations being put in force to prevent such catastrophes in the future.
Thii charging, recklessly up and
down our streets and around oornera,
like cowboys in some wild frontier
town, must be put a stop to, and
likewise furious driving in vehicles.
We do not mean to say that persons
on horseback or in carriages should
be confined to a snail's pace; but
there is the "happy medium," and
equestrians of. all ranks and conditions should be impressed with the
necessity of keeping within it.
The retaliation message of President Cleveland to congress, on the
23rd of lut month, has provoked
unlimited discussion in Canada and
the States, and to a considerable ex-
in Great Britain also. It has
iewed from every conceivable
tint, according to the nationalities, and other predilections
more of less interested disputants. No patty or clique in Canada ,or the neighboring republic but
hu attempted to manufacture cupi
tal out of this very convenient and
much-construed document Issued
primarily ai a democratic coup d'etat,
it il as such acceptable to that party,
who gloat over the hard nut it proves
to their opponents, The republicans,
on the other hand, recognizing that
the president bu oleverly thrown
upon them tbe reiponiibility of giving practical application to their
rabid retaliation talk of the lut few
ithi, with the disagreeable alternative ol lunching off of cold crow,
are displaying admirable ingenuity
in iquirming out of their uncomfortable position. The real iisue itself,
it can be imagined, ii greatly obscured by partirsnhip and political
biai, these pMtiont being particularly
rampant or the eve of a presidential
ehMtion, Meanwhile the .rgus-eyed
politician, of, both parties arc closely wstohing the long suffering public, who hold in their power the yet

box, to gtrt their one for advancing
or retiring, according ai the now

or frowns. In this compelled deference to tbe people lies the guarantee
—on the presumption tlmt the majority will reach their conclusions
ffoin a common-sense, butiness stand-
point-a^hnt nothing rath . will be
done lis the politicians, who, to gain
■votes, would, it ia to lie feifred, bo
equal to almost anything. It is safe
to say that the solid business men
of the states, whose pockets would
bo considerably affected, would
grow very restless under the enforcement of retaliation such as the pres-
dent's message calls for, and that the
retaliation bug-a-boo, after having
served its purpose in a political exigency, will give place to a renewal
of negotiations, on an amicable basis,
between all parties concerned, eventuating in a satisfactory settlement of
the whole question—if indeed the
fiend of party does not continue to
thwart so desirable a consummation.

while never refusing to obey orders, be

backing to make him refuse to.
One day in Juno a party of stringer,

Lut evening about 7:30 o'clock,
while a young lad in the imploy of Mr.
Thoinat Cunningham, who wai riding
a mare, wai driving home lome 20
rwwi from the brush two or three hundred yardi behind Montreal itreet,
suddenly the man fell down a. well
somo 15 feet deep, the boy managing
in some way or another to catch on to
tho edge of the pit nnd thin escaped
being carried down alto. There the
poor animal itayed In icvenl feot of
water until 12 o'clock last night, for it
waa not until then, oven with tho lid
of Bumo 20 men, that Mi. Cunningham
waa able to oxtricale her. The means
adopted for thia purpoie were aa followi: An incline shaft wai dug iu tho
font of the well when by means of a
derrick, the mare was raised to the
surface apparently none tho worse for
her rough experience. The lad who
was riding had a narrow escape, for
had ho gone down the well the chancel
are that between the leveral feet of
water and tho kicking of tho animal he
would havo been killed, The mare
wu a valuable one and it wai a fortunate thing for Mr. Cunningham that
some aorioui injury wu not done her,

other instances are actually rotten and

are either taken up for several feet or

the streets in such a condition il it my
wonder that a Soittle man, who lately

CORRESPONDENCE.
The Cnnell and Ike Hallway.
Editor Columbian.—I think that the
matter submitted to the municipal council at the special meeting hold on Thursday evening has boon misunderstood.
In talking with one of the directors yesterday, I learned that the company did
not want to get the debentures hinded
ovor to them, but limply to have them
Issued, and ready for uw when required.
The lawyen, who do thing! up to thi
handle, prepared the necessary document., and tubinittcd them, which wu
ill regular enough, but one of the aldermen, who are the watch dogs of the
munlcipality.took the alarm, and mlttook
the timely hint for .peremptory de-
mind, end whilit their alertnett hu
canted a temporary bnt unnecetsary
panic, they have raited themselves in
the estimation of the public. There is
one feature of the business which would
be better if it were absent. Two of the
aldermen are also member! of tbe railway
company. If they were as wile u they
are old they would' not .occupy such in
amhiguouB position; it Ib not enough
that they abstain from voting on this
question. Their presence In the counoil.
makee them responBible for tho lot! of
the. council. Supposing that a money
vote comes up, they abstain from voting,
but the five remaining to vote, three
against two, would cany the motion; ao
that a minority of the council would vote
money into their .pockets. It is to be
hoped that thit Southern Railway tchemo
will not get a back-set through miserable
■tnpldlty. ,    ^ Cm***.
The Mali way Nailer,
Editor CoLOMMAK.^-Sir, being present at • special meeting of the city council, I heard on' agreement read by
solicitors of the S. R. R. Co., asking tho
council to hand.over immediately to the
company the sinount of debentures
(190,000, voted for the purpose of building machine and workshops, and for
steam railway ferry boat. Sir, It seemed
to me hy appearances, the agreement
would at that meeting bo signed. Aid.
Herring not being present at opening of
meeting, taking his seat, desired to be
made acquainted with business before the
counoil. On hearing, he spoke about the
attempt to spring it suddenly on counoil,
and asked for time to look over and consider the agreement. Aid. Calbick asked
for time to consider. On motion of Aid.
Ovens, seconded by Aid. Herring, time
wu granted to. an adjourned meeting,
Mr. Editor, I thought | that the attempt
to get the signature of' the counoil to in
agreement, which would nullify all previous agreements, and make the by-law
on which the loan wu voted of no effect,
waa one of the most high-handed speculations I have .over seen, liter the compiny making their own conditions, and
the promise! of the mayor at a publio
meeting, and now to ask tlie city, through
the mayor and council, to hand over
(160,000, without, on their part, doing
anything towarde fulfilling their part of
the conditions.. Sir, it mutt be under*
stood by all concerned, the city cannot
furnish money for speculative purposes.
The compiny can only receivo the money,
for the [purpose for whioh it wu voted,
machine ahopa and steam railway ferry
boat—worki in the oity—u it It illegal
to vote money out of the city treuury for
any work done outside of city limits.
Sir, the S. R. R. Co. hu made a hold
attempt to gain a point and u yet have
done no harm but to themttlvei. Citizens have been put on their guard ind
feel that eternal vigilance is the price of
liberty. John E. Lobd.
