The signs of the times would indi-
cutc that a great struggle is at hand
betweon free trade and protection,
aud Ihosir same principles are prominent in social ami political life, as
well as in trade uud commerce, in
everything in faet with which man
has to do, lit the hedging round of
particular individuals and classes
with peculiar privileges and immunities, in all ages, can be detected
% spirit of protection. The feudal
system of tin*, old world had its origin in this same dishonest, grasping
selfishness; might took, by degrees,
the place of right, and the nations
of Europe in particular are now suf
fering the consequences and effects
of the vory principles that are at
work to-day iu Oanada, and even in
republican America—an inordinate
thirst for wealth and power. Then,
kings and emperors, by the so-called
"divine right," bestowed place and
power on their favorites. Now,
would-be kings, who obtain plaoe
and power by the eonsent of their
equals in these days of responsible
government, so-called, are effecting
the same results through corrupt
legislation. It is astonishing to
think how soon the very best institutions can be turned to acount for
the accomplishment of the very
worst objects. Responsible government under the English and American systems is perhaps tlm most perfect of all human governments, and
yet, how much unrighteous legislation is carried on under both systems. Money is acknowledged to
be the great source of influence.
Hence the universal craze for money,
by any and all means, only get it
and you secure power. The American millionaire is now the most
powerful aristocrat **in ' eirtiltni/e':
While the landed proprietors of
England are getting poor, and in
many cases are obliged to sell their
lordly patrimony and sink into mere
empty titled gentry, the railway and
other powerfully privileged monopolists of North America are in many
instances more powerful than the
government
No one could read the report of
the proceedings of the teachers' institute, which haa just closed its
fourth annual convention, at Viotoria, without being struck with the
appropriateness and practical.jjtility
of such gatherings, where mind
stimulates and sharpens mind, and
the harassed and tired youth instructors of the province revel in a
feast of wit, wisdom, and social converse. The good effects do not >top
with the teaohers themselves, who
are unmistakably benefitted and refreshed by these symposiums, but
the'public meetings of the. institute
furnish rare entertainment for the
publio, who always avail themselves
of these opportunities for enjoying
an intellectual and social treat,
Many good things, too, are brought
to light by the stimulus of suoh an
occasion whieh otherwise would*
never have found utterance; and society and the world is enriched by
new thoughts, or old thoughts clad
in fresh and attractive garb. The
convention just closed has been
marked in an eminent degree by the
contribution of valuable papers,
helpful suggestions, and sparkling
hon mots. The paper "Oui Bono"
read by Mr. H. M. Stramberg, prin,
cipal of the high sohool here receives
very flattering notice from tho Victoria press, the Colonist printing it
in full. It occupies about three
columns, and ia certainly an able
and interesting composition. For
the general success of the convention
much credit is due Superintendent
Pope, Inspector Wilson, and the
committeo of management. A teach-
ets' convention is to be held at San
Francisco shortly, when it is expected that about 6,000 teachers will be
present from all the stales. It is
understood that tin* minister "I e>l.i
cation, Hon. Mr. Robson, litis arranged for rnduoed rates, 91.1 eaeh
way, including meals, staterooms,
etc., whicli will onablo some of the
teachers from this province, at u
nindemlc outlay, to exchange fraternal greetings and ideas with tlieir
assembled breathern of the states at
the Boy city. A very pleasant and
profitable vacation could, we should
imagine, be thus spent and the
teachers will return to their several
posts better equipped than ever for
teaching the "young idea how to
shoot," No reference is intended
here to the well-known American
dexterity with the revolver.

liosiros, July 10.—The Marquis of
Allcslrury, thadisrepulablo little poer
of whom everyone has frequently
heard, has ut last turnod his hand tu
something really useful. He lias
bought a Winsdor and -Henley coach,
and drives it every day, allowing anybody to ride fur seven shillings. and
sixpence, with u half crown extra for
a bux seat beside his lordship.
THE HUTCH IIOCTOKH.
Bssun, July 10.--Tbo reports of
the German physicians concerning the
dead emperor's oase, are published.
They are long and 'tediously minute
and generally opposed to Mr. Mackenzie's treatment. Dr. Gebhardtaays he
knew it waa cancer from the first. He
censures Dr. Mackenzie's treatment
from the beginning to the end. Dr.
Bergmann thinks that the Emperor
Frederick's life would have been ssved
had a part of the vocal cords been cut
out according to his advice. The Emperor Frederick and his wife were
willing that the operation be performed. Dr. Bergmann also says he had
successfully performed seven such
operations in Berlin. The German
physisians early lost all faith in Dr.
Mackenzie's theory and treatment.
Dr. Gisohroetter is sure it was cancer
beyond a doubt
THS EMFIROK'S TOUB.
Brainr, July 10.—The Emperor
William will embark on his voyage to
St. Petersburg en the morning oi
July Uth. Tho Russian Imperial
squadron will meet the German fleet
in the German gulf on the shores ef
Finland. There the Kaiser will be
received by the Czar's yacht. The
Germsn standard will be hoisted above
the Russian and both squadrons will
sail for Constadt At that port a
Royal reception will be given at the
landing, after which the cortege will
proceed to St. Petersburg.
TBI LIBSB1XS SATISFIEll.
Lomdok, July 10.—Mr. Parnell, hy
his attitude in the House of Commons
in giving notice tbat he should insist
upon a resolution cresting a special
committee to inquire into the charges
made against him-by the Attorney-
General and the Ttnui, h»a satisfied all
critics of the Liberal party, lie cannot hope to satisfy the Tories, who insist that he must go to the courts for
sstisfaction. Mr. Parnell's offer to
have the committee made up of English and Scotch members is similar to
one offered by him last session. When
the Times printed the first letter the
Government then refused his proffer,
and will undoubtedly again refuse to
accept it when the resolution shall
come up on Thursday. This refusal,
in order to be understood, must be
compared with the effect of such action
in Uie Congress of the United States.
There no member whose honor hu
been assailed by newspaper charges
has ever been refused a personal investigation when Ihe offended member
made such a request

The Chicago cily railway is perhaps

Pareebsbubo, W.Va., July 11.—
The floods continue to destroy property
ahd along the Little Kanawha and
Ohio rivers the damage ia greater than
in 1884. Hundreda of acres of growing crops and harvested grain are destroyed, mid millions of feet of lumber
are afloat aud going to destruction.
The loss to this and adjoining counties
will be more than (103,000. Every
stream is over its banks and a number
of families have had to move to higher
ground. Nearly all telegraphic communication ia out off and big washouts
are reported along the.railroads. A
woman waa killed by lightning and a
boy drowned laat night The rain is
still falling. Polishtown, located along
the bank of the river, was in a sorry
plight to-day. There are newly 70
shanty boata at that point occupied by
over 160 families, aggregating a population of more than 600 people. All
of these with the exception of about a
dozen families camped out lut night
Early yesterday morning the trouble
began. All day men, women and children were busy pumping water out of
the boats and removing their gooda
to places of safety. By night 10 boat
houses had sunk or capsized and several were carried down the river.
Williamsburg, Beck's Run, a portion
of McKeesport, California, Mononga-
hela, Belle Vernon, Brownsville, Fayette Oity and other towns along the
river are reported partly submerged

I'lTTmiirRir, July 11.—The floods on
the Monongahela are unprecedented. The
greatest damage to river craft .occurred
between 1.30 o'clock this morning and
daylight. Shortly before two o'olock
a large number of barires came down the
river and struck the bridge, the huge
barges turning ond ovor and breaking
the tow-boat Barnard in against the
steamer. Every whistle on the river
sounded the alarm and as the rays of the
electric lights swept from side to side'
across the turbulent Hood it presented a
wild sight. Logs, barges and fuel boats
were dashed against tho piers of the
bridge and snapped like twigs by the
overwhelming force of the current.

On more than one occasion we
have raced tha publio impatience
with respect tothe result of the'negotiations that had been going on
for some time between the trustees
ot the Westminster-Southern Railway and'a syndicate of capitalists,
with a viewto placing the road under cfu-ly construction.    Yesterday
we laid before our readers at length
the result of all tha negotiations and
painstaking  investigations  of  the
last three or fonr months hy thoso
having the mattor in hand.    No
trouble appears to have been spared
to formulate a comprehensive and
practicable scheme) and credit is due
those who have prosecuted the business in the interests of  the city.
The following are the gentlemen who
Were elected directors of the New
\Vestminster-Soutlieru Railway at a
meeting of the subscribers to the
capital stock of the company hold
early last month:  B. Douglas, president; John Hendry, vice-president;
Henry   Elliott,   treasurer;   ,T. J.
Trapp, secretary; B. Drysdale, E. S.
Scoullar, II. Hoy, A. Ewen, and 0.
M. lleechcr.   These gentlemen nro
all well-known  citizens and have
been chosen by the shareholders of
the Westminster-Southern, who are
also citizens, to act as directors for
one year.   It will be seen, then,
that the gentlemen who have been
conducting the negotiations on behalf of the city are thoroughly representative   and    responsible,-   and
may fairly be presumed to be acting
in the interest of the city, which is
.   their interest, naturally.   It would
appear that they have been at considerable pains to inform themselves
by personal investigation on all the
details of tbe matter in hand. They
are, we believe, thoroughly satisfied
with the arrangements they have
been  able  to   make.    The muyor
and aldermen, before whom the proposition was laid the other night,
were unanimous in their endorsation;
and both the directors and the council havo satisfied themselves as to
the bona fides and financial standing
of Ex-Senator Ganfield and the company which he represents, as also the
substantial nature of the security
offered.    As stated yesterday, the
council, considering the proposition
and conditions satisfactory, have instructed the city solicitor to draw
up a by-law to enable the city to
borrow the money required.   The
rate payers will have an early opportunity of voting upon this by-law,
and upon that vote will depend, for
the present at least, the fate of the
Westminster - Southern    Railway
scheme.   Our readers in this city
will observe that there are many
things recommending this scheme to
their favorable consideration. While
there may be a difference of opinion
on some of the details, the proposal
on the whole is worthy of the most
serious deliberation and the fairest
consideration by all having the true
interest of the city at heart.   From
all that we can learn the general
sentiment is strongly in  favor of
giving the bonus required, and taking prompt action in the matter,
thin securing the advantages which
are sure to Sow from the immediate
construction and early completion of
the  road,  to  say nothing of the
machine and car shops to be established here, and the new steamboat
line between this city and Seattle.
One thing is certain, whatever difference of opinion may exist as to the
advisability of voting the bonus required,   and   thus   accepting   the
proposition made, no trivial,pretext
—none but the best of reasons-
should be for a moment' entertained
in opposition to this soheme.    If
those who oppose the scheme—and
there will be found some—arc able
to suggest a better alternative one,
then may their opposition be considered valid.   Otherwise, it ought not
to count for much. Let the ratepayers give the subject their careful
snd unprejudiced consideration in
the meantime, and be prepared to
vote in the best interests of the city.
We shall refer to this subject again,
Some time ago (July 3) the Vancouver News took the Toronto Mail
to task  for   misapprehending  the
situation in the publication of the
following statement:   " British Oolumbla bas enormous wealth in sea
fisheries, but it cannot be developed
until her fishermen obtain free ac
cess to the American market."   The
Mail is entirely wrong in this statement," says our cotemporary.   In a
long and in many respects able article,'   our   cotemporary   continues,
showing tbat the real market for our
fish is the Oanndian Northwest, and
stating that the present trade restrictions between Canoda and the
United States are favorable rather
than otherwise to the development
of our fishing industry, on the theory
that we are thereby protected from
having this market made a dumping
ground for the surplus of the foreign
producer:     The  News concludes:
" But if undor present circumstances
there is an advantage from the duty
now   levied, it is certainly on the
side of British Columbia, which is
developing a new Industry."    We
are afraid onr cotemporary slightly
misapprehends: the  situation himself.  "Although it is true that the
Northwest is a very valuable market
for our products and will be Still
more valuable as it settles up, .still,
with the restrictions taken off trade
between Canada and tho States, the
teeming cities of the east would be
opened to our fish. They are now
beginning to receive iish, principally
halibut, from the deep sea fisheries
of Washington' Territory, and ac-
cording to a despatch whieh ap-
peaed in the Colombia!,-yesterday it
will be seen that eastern fishermen
and capitalists are beginning to take
an interest in the United States
Pacific coast fisheries, more especially as it seems the eastern supply is
limited. As to tbe fear that Washington Territory would flood our
home market with fish, that would
be carrying "coals to Newcastle"
with a vengeance. The fact is that
tbe demand for Iish right in the
States would keep Washington Territory busy, besides absorbing all
that we could spare after satisfying
the wants of home consumption and
the Northwest trade. So evidently
think the Victoria board of trade.
In tlieir annual report, which is before us, we find the following: " It
is hoped the coming investigation of
cod banks on the west coast may
justify a large development of a profitable industry. The removal of
the duty on fish entering tho United
States would render a rapid growth
of trade from this province in dried
and salted fish." In the Toronto
Mail of July 3rd we notice an able
column communication written by
some citizen of Westminster, who,
we should judge, by the style of the
.article, was a person of more than
ordinary intelligence nnd responsibility for bis utterances. The article in question, which cannot but
draw attention to und benefit British Columbia—and especially this
city and district—abroad, outlines
the trials and tribulations of Westminster in the past, touches upon
the more salient points of the lumber
and salmon industries of the cily
and district, describes the recent
triumphant re-opening of the Fraser
River to navigation by sea-going
vessels, and, after adverting to the
improvements going on at the mouth
of the river, concludes: " But what
we must get, if wo are to make any
real progress, is unrestricted trado
with our American neighbors." It
is well known that at the time British Columbia entered the union the
federal tariff was considered to be a
hardship to this province, as it was
in fact. It is only during the last
year or two, since the C. P. R. has
given us access to a new purchasing
and selling market, that the drawbacks of the trade restrictions between Canada and the United States
have been partially mitigated so far
as this province is concerned, and,
even now, we are inclined to favor
the theory thot British Columbia
would bo better off with those re
strictions entirely removed.

Ttt MKIICAK QUMIO -SONMNY,
djalMl    81 * 41 Park Flie*. Kew Y-nki MAKING JET BUTTONS.
The rrocewes  by  Whicli These F:tm-
lllar Things Are Produced.' A'Aa
Jet buttons 1 ."What yoU call jet buttons nro not jet buttons at all; they
are merely glass, but they serve tbo purpose just as well, look just ns well, and
are very much cheaper. So snid a manufacturer ol jet buttons in Brooklyn tho
other day. Then he led the inpimimj reporter into the factory where the buttons
■were in the process of manufacture.
Until recently nearly all the buttons of
this kind came from Bohemia, but they
are now made in this country, and Ameti-
can manufacturers aro able to compote
-frith the foreign trade.
The process used by this manufacturer
la known only to himself, and its secrets
are jealously guarded. 'J'liey apply, however, moro to the finish In ("j and tho different effects given by chemicals.
In a large room which the reporter entered A dozen ormoiv men were busy at-
little work benches. Tho 1mm of shafting
nnd the squeaking of n bellows at regular
intervals lent their din lo Llio scene of industry, while the workmen deftly handled
the long black rods of glass from which
the buttons wen made.
These rods, which are round, aro abont
four feet long ami three-fourths of an
inch in thickness, and tbey are made in
Brooklyn. Three of them are taken at a
time by the button maker, held together,
and so placed on the bench that one end
la kept constantly over a tongue of fire,
the gas used being blown by wind from
tha bellows, which is worked by steam
power, and is connected by pipes with
each work bench.
With a little steel rod, held in one band,
the button maker picks from tho newly
molten mass of glass :i large drop. This
he skillfully holds in such ft manner that
Arnold made iutwowict'ousillfeliun iron
vise, shuts, catcln-s t fie tiro;! in its mouth,
so to speak,presses it. into thoshapeof
the dies aud then swallows it. Upon bo-'
ing swallowed, tho button falls through
a pipe a couple of feet long and drops into
a, pail beneath.
A feature of tho pressing of the button
is that the eyelet is pressed into tho button at the same time.it having previously
been placed in the die. Tho buttons are
next washed lu cold water, and then the
rough edges left from the "mollis aro cut
off by boys with scisa'drs rimdo for tho
purpose. From he.-!, thoy are carried to
the edgers, Tho edgevs aro girls, and
their work consists i:i giving (iho buttons
A finish with emery wheels.
Tho cutting and fe'dging'Vwuld bo done
ftwaywith,thojnu*.!i*::irr.u-ci*- enid, when
he got in some m.w ui*V/u:*ig apparatus
which he hnd devi-j!»l himself,
Tho buttons tit thidM-iguhavotheap-
pearnnoeof an ordinary black jet button.
Polishing them on a whpel of somo peculiar foreign wood. or. the surface of which
n preparation is put, gives them a glossy
appearance. The maftrning or era pe effect
is attained by the ■ I.-.; tern of the die, and
then by soaking Uio buttons in certain
chemicals.
Other effects nud colors arc •*:ido bythe
use also of chemicals in conjunction with
heat.
With the new aud approved appliances
fifty gross of buttons enn be made ou one
press ia a day. The eyelets used are mado
of brass wire, which is run from ft spool
on to ft small revolving rod. When taken
off this it has theappparancn'of along
coil spring. 'This is placed in an enclosed
arrangement, and a circular saw of very
hard steel cuts it into ns many little rlugs
as there are turns in thu wire.
From the manufacturing department
the buttons nre taken to tho carders, generally girls, who in another room place,
them on cards and fasten them with
needle and thread, The cards are placed
In boxea and the buttons are ready for
market.
On a sample card shown the reporter
there were glass or jet buttons of nearly
every imaginable shape, color and effect,
from the sombre crape to one sparkling
with silver and gold and - countless other
colo»,-N«r York World. '
. TOO GREEDY. ■
A Lesion from the Conduct of a Barnyard
1^ Fowl.
Then Is perhaps as much difference
among birds as among human beings.
Somo are wise, and some are foolish.
A Scotch observer furnishes an amusing
illustration of this. - He was accustomed
to scatter breadcrumbs and other table
scraps about the door tn cold weather, for
ths benefit of tho blackbirds, thrushes and
other like visitors,    .
A huge, feather-legged Cochin-China
cock sometimes found its way to tho par-..
lorwlndowaswowero feeding our wild-
bird pensioners. •*'
When we threwout a plateful of crumbs
and scraps, all the other birds gobbled up
tbeir food very fast by going shrewdly
nnd sensibly to work, each selecting bit
after bit of a suitable size, to be instantly
swallowed with little orno trouble; wrens,
finches and thrushes taking only such bits
as tbey very plainly judged were suitable
to their Individual powers of deglutition.
It wasamnslng, however, to see thestu-
pidlty ofthe big Cochin-China. He greedily pounced upon some big piece, so big
that hffcould not swallow it, uud rather
than letltdrop In ordor to pick up somo
more sizable bit, ho Invariably stuck to
it, like a fool as he was, nud Is, and will bo
to the end ot the chapter.
He would strain and strive to swallow
it till you feared he would choke himself,
all the time walking about ln tbe snow
with uncertain steps, his eyes starting out
- of bis head. ****i3 n_ftl
The idea never onco occurred to the
stupid Cochin, that by taking smaller and
more manageable bits, he would be much
the gatuer In the long run; forwhen, after
tcrriblo exertions, the bit ln his throat
had nt last become compressed and lubricated enough to ba swallowed outright,
nnd he looked round for more, there was
no more for him.
The wiser wild birds had finished lt all
up, even tothclastcrumb,undtheCochin-
China had to stalk about In the snow,
looking very disconsolate aud foolish, and
yet manifestly unablo to seo wherein his
foolishness lay, for the next tlmo he got a
cfaunce he behaved iu precisely the samo
senseless manuer.
What Allspice Is.     J _M \J
Allspice Is not all spices nt all, but ono
spice, the product of tho powdered behlei
of the pimento or. Jamaica ginger.
Pimento trees are small evergreens, and
tho flowers grow in clusters, and are followed by small green aromatic berries,
which are gathered before ripening and
spread upon platforms to dry In tho sun.
The trees are never planted, but grow
wild from seeds scattered by birds, and
are thinned out and looked after by the
■farmers. A strong liquor is made from
the berries by the Jamaica farmer*.

Ways nnd Means of Ascertaining BOW
■'■:    Pest tho Cars Ai-d Going1. ■;'.
There is not oue person In one hundred
of the millions who (ravel oil railroads in
the courso of a year who has any idea of
the speed of atrnin. A largo percentage
of evon tlio regular train men of the
country cannot tell with any degree of
accuracy how fast a train is runniug.
Frequently engineers are dispatched on
a trip over a lino of railroad with instructions to run at aspeedof acortnln number
of miles an hour, tho engineen do no*
carry a speed indicator, but have learned
by various methods to gauge their engine!
so as to make only Uie slightest Vaefatio»
from their orders. <
Tlie majority of engineers use their
driving-wheel as a gauge. They know Its
circumference, and by counting Its revolutions within a certain time can tell very
accurately tho speed at which they are
running.
Another method Is to time the ran
between mile posts, and still another is to
male calculations from tho number of
telegraph poles passed in a coital a time.
These poles In a level oountry, and where
four or five wires an used, are spaced
from twenty-five to twenty-eight to the
mile.
The most accurate method, and the one
most In use by experienced railroad men,
is to count the number ot rail Joints the
train passes over In twenty seconds. The
rails in nearly all cases are thirty feet lu
length, uud tho number passed over in
twenty seconds is the speed per hour a
train Is running.
For instance if a passenger sitting in a
slcopcr cau count thirty clicks of the
wheels on a rail joint iu twenty seconds,
the train is running at the speed of thirty
miles an hour,—Kansas City Times.
BETTER TBAN DIVORCE.
•Showing What Persistency and Kicks Did
Iu Ending a Cuimubinl Difficulty.
A well-known lawyer told mo a few
days ugo ft story of a late experience,
I've hud a funny caso lately, ltwasn
divorce, case, and I was counsel for tho
lady. I never heard two peoplo abuse
each other so. I never know two people
to make such a bitter, hard fight as thoso
two. The property was considerable,and
1 hail it tied up with an injunction. Al)
efforts to compromise wero no good. At
last 1 thought the tnanwastrylngtochcat
the woman, so I stopped negotiations for
a compromise and prepared to put the
caso into court. The lady came to seo
me.
''It's uo use, madam. I'm going to put
the':aso straight through the court*'-'
"1 wish you would'; it's what I want. I
never will compromise with that man—
never, never, never I'1
"All right. You will call hero at 10
o'clock to-morrow, aud we will see about
the witnesses."
Next morning at 10 o'clock sho was
thero.* She was nattily dressed, tn great
style, ami she sat down with a pleased assurance.
"Well, madam, let us proceed."
"1 wnnt the case dismissed."
"Dismissed!  How Is that?"
"Well, we've fixed it."
"You liavej"
"Yes. It's all settled."
"May I ask how yon settled iW"
"Well, last night he came np to ay
rooms, The door wus locked, and -When
he kuockc-d I said, 'Who'sthat?' 'It'sme.'
•You can't come in.* He kept knocking.'
I told htm he couldn't como tn, ami ho
knocked harder, aud I told him louder he
couldn't come in, and he kicked the door
down and came lu, and we sat down and

AN EFFECTIVE SEttlfOX.
Reminds of That One Preached to tho
Woman at the WeU.
Ono very stormy Sunday Dr. Payson
went to church more from habit than because ho expected to find anybody there.
Just alter he had stepped iuside tha
door an old negro came in, and. asked it
Dr. Payson was to preach there that day,
explaining thst he was a stranger In town,
aud had been advised to go to his church.
"Upon that," said Dr. Payson, -"I mado
up my mind to preach my sermon Jt nobody clso' came."
Nobody else did come, so .the Doctor
pveached to tho choir and tho old -negro.
Some mouths afterward he happened to
meet the negro, and stopping him, asked,
how he enjoyed the sermon tbat stormy
Sunday.
"Enjoy dat sermon," replied tho old
man, "I 'clare, Doctor, I nebbar heard it
better one, Yo* see, I had a seat pretty
well, up front, aud whenebber you'd say

Did you ever observe a woman just before she is lifted Into the saddle, and a

She becomes achanged being. Theroses

the soldier* in the song, of expanding
their breast for the ball.

The advent of the abovo named
handsome and convenient little ateamor
ia welcomed on the Fraser river. This
boat is 60 feet long, 12 feet beam, 44
feet hold; has a 9x9 high prosBuro
engine and a very powerful boiler with
large steaming capacity. The Horseshoe was built at the orderof Messn.
J. A. Todd and Son for use in connection with their canneries, the Richmond on the North Arm and the
Bearer cannery now in course of construction at Lulu Landing. The hull
of this steamer was built by Mr.
Colins, of Victoria, and the engines
and boilers by Messrs. Doty & Co,,
of Toronto. The Horseshoe promises
to be a very fast little craft, and we
congratulate hor owners on their enterprise, and hopo this new venture
will prove a great success.

As usual when Col. McGregor absents himsol! from the city for auy
length of time that miserable old creature Dame Rumor, begins to circulate,
all aorta of stories concerning him.
The latest is that the fine appearance
of the colonel in his braw kilts at
Seattle won the heart of a rich and
handsome widow, who was not a bit
timid (as ladies are supposed to be) in
showing her preference for the gallant
colonel. The colonel, who ia a hard
bird to net, is said to have succumbed
before the bewitching wiles of the fair
Seattleite, and the nuptials will take
place at an early date. Wo do not
vouch for the truth of this rumor, but
it comes to us through a very reliable
channel and we are inclined to think
the colonel has nearly brough his batch-
elor daya to a close. We can only add.
that "The bravo deserve the fair."

A despatch was received this morning from Capt. Pitlendreigh, announcing tho death of Mr. J. C. Haynos,
8. M. of Osoyoos. The deceased had
been visiting in this city and was on
his road horn* when taken ill at Mr.
E. M. Allison's residence, Princeton
ranche, and died within a few hours.
Mr. Haynes was one ol the pioneers of
British Columbia, haviog arrived on
the cosst in 1869 and has resided
Sermanently in the counsry ever since,
'or 26 years he has been ranching in
the Semilkameen country, and was
probably the largest cattle owner ih
the Province. He waa atipendory
magistrate and collector of customs for
Oioyoos district and in each capacity
wss highly respected by all who had
business with him. The deceased waa
twice married, the Drat time to Miss
Moresby, daughter of Governor Moresby of the provincial jail, and the
second time to Miss Pittendreigh,
daughter of Oapt, Pittendreigh. A
large family is lelt to mourn his lots.
Mr. Haynes wat descended from an
old Irish fiimliy noted for its hospitality, and this feature of the family wa.
generously exhibited in the deceased
as many travellers through the Semil-
kamoen country can testify. When
General Sherman, and his troop ot
cavalry crossed the line into British
Columbia a few years ago they were
entertained by Mr. Haynes in such a
right royal manner that the General
in speaking of the occasion afterwards
remarked that "every officer and man
were treated liko princes." The do-
ceased gentleman waa honored and
respected by all who had acquaintance
with him, and the news nf his sudden
and unexpected  death  culled forth

The only topic of conversation on
tlie streets to-day wus tho Southern
Railway scheme and bonus bylaw. A
few ot th* noii-progreisive wero as
busy at bees talking down the scheme,
or insisting that certain conditions
should he inserted iu the agreement
which Would practically result in no
railroad being built. The great majority of substantial property holden
have expressed themselves in favor of
the scheme, and, though their
voices are not heard so loudly on
the streets as the opponent, of
the road, wben it comes to Ihe polls
these voters will tell in no uncertain
sound in what direotion their sympathies lie. Th* day has arrived whon it
is necessary for Wettmintter to get up
and work for her interests ts she nevor
worked before. Enterprising and active neighbors make this a necessity.
There is a great race to be run between
rival cities. Westminster starta handicapped but she will come out victorious.

To-morrow night at the Coknial
Hotol a dinner will be given in Honor
ofthe ex-Senator Confield, president
ol the Westminster, Bolllngham Bay
and Seattle Railroad, Mr. S. Baxter,
a director of tho same Company, Mr.
Johu Hendry, president of tht Royal
City Mills, and Captain Gordon of the
ship Camana. The occasion will be
oue of more than ordinary interest as
it will bring together the primo movers
in the two great schemes Westminster
has fought for ao long, viz:—Foreign
shipping and the Southern Railway,
one of which hat already been realized.
The dinner it'tendered, by those of our
citizens who are energetic business
men, and who realise that tome tort
of recognition should be given to tho
inauguration of Westminster's future
greatness. It was thought the council
should have done the honors on thit
occasion, and Mayor Dickinson endeavored to make the dinner a civio
affair, but the aldermen thought the
expense too great to come out of the
public purse, Enterprising citizens,
fortunately, havo come to the rescue
and the good name of the city is not
likely to buffer at their hands.

rumen' Association.
'For mutual protection againat many
lottos and troubles the canneryinen
tavtJrtamputito.during the put few
years, the salmon packers met a few
days ago and formed an association
which they hopo will result beneficially
lo all concerned. Mr. J. H. Todd has
been olectcd president, and Mr. E. A.
Wadhams secretary and treasurer.
The object of the oisociotion is mutual
benefit and tho advancement and protection of the fishing industry on the
Frater River. To-day the attociation
has issued a poster offering t&00 reward
to anyone who oan prove that tbe employees of the canneries have told fish
to outside parties. Thit wat made
necessary from the fact that unscrupulous white men, pretending to be legitimate lisliormou, have been in the
•habit, duriiijj tlio night, of visiting the
boatt manned by Indians and purchasing from them, at a trilling cost, n
sufficient number of Hsh to make » good
night's catch. In the morning the Indians, who are all on salary, would return to the cannery with just sufficient
fish to pay their wages. This is one
of the practice* which it wu very
"neeettary (hould be put down. The
association has enrolled tho name of
name of every dinner of importance on
''the river, and we wish it every success.

EMiltt; COLUMftiAK.--*-Doubtless moat
of your readers have at aome time, from
the deck of a steamer, viewed the
plctureaque scenery of Plumper's Pass
ahd vicinity, but it nny be not many of
them have ever found time or opportunity to spend a few days among the inlands of the -neighboring archipelago.
During a brief visit last week I traversed
pretty thoroughly the settled parts of
Mayne, Qaliano and Pender Islands, and
was surprised to find a number of quiet
homes, surrounded by well-tilled nelds
In which the harvesters were busily at
work. The greater part of the und,
however, is suitable only for grazing, and
the settlers are giving their attention
largely to sheep-raising, au Industry for
which these rocky islands seem admirably adapted.
For any one desiring to spend a few
quiet weeks amidst most pleasant and
healthful surroundings, this locality
affords a delightful retreat. The roads
through the islands are mostly new, but
there are many charming walks, while
rough paths and steep ascents are not
wanting to try the mettle of more adventurous climbers.
Then thore are tlie manifold attractions
always to be found upon a sea-coast;
rocky headlands jutting out here and
there and enclosing placid bays in which
fish abound; the facinating beauty of the'
Pass, with its contending tides, mysterious eddies and the phosphorescent glory
of Its dark water upon a summer evening.
I found a pleasant home during my
stay with Mr. John Deacon wbo has a
large sheep ranoh of 16C0 acres on
Mayne island just below the pass. Mr.
Deacon haa lately built a new house and
accommodates a few summer visitors. Mr.
and Mrs. Clarkson and Mias Alice Clute
of this city are there at present, and
others are expected ahortly. To any of
your readers who are looking for a quiet
nook in which to -spend a few weeks of
the hot weather I recommend Plumper's
Pass.   Yours truly,
James H. White.
