VOTES AND COMMENTS.
Following; is the rather heat manner in whioh the Whatcom Democrat
scores one: "[Here the tolegreph
line went down,]" is the way toe
P. I. wiiids up a column and a half
of Blaine's latest, effusion .nailing

wire il diicriininating enbuifh to
draw th. line at suoh nonsense.
Victoria, at the instance of iti
patriotic press, il tearifig down iti
verandaai, to that tbe i«n can ripen
file grass on Government itreet presumably, and also to give the capital
a more city-like appearance. Awnings are to take the place of the.ye-
aores that are being removed. We
are glad to notice that Westminster's
new Mocks are free from the. verandah inoubus. ..- .! '
The correspondent of the Independence Beige at Rome write, that
tho state of Leo.XUI.'i health ii
far from satisfactory, but that his
real condition ii carefully kept from
the public; He ii in a painfully
nervous state, and is constantly pursued by a morbid fear of death, the
slightest ailment assuming in hll
excited imagination the form of a
serious disorder. ,    :
The Chicago Herald declares thit
if it can be shown that "the Dominion is prepared to meet the United
States half way in negotiation* to
settle the whole vexatious matter
of fisheries and transportation."
then the attempt to "gratify unreasonable and eelfiih demand." will
fail, for under those conditions "no
interference with our busineti relation* with Canada would bs toler.

The Owyontanjtjiui oWribet th.
astronomical experience of a "web-
footer" who had returned from a
visit to California. He viiitcd the
Lick Obwrvatory and had th. pleasure of looking through the big telescope at Jupiter. He tayi it looked
like a red light with some kindi of
objects on it. It hurt his .yes to
look at it He then took a iquint
at the moon, which, he cay., looked
like a big mess of bonny clabber
mixed with something rid, whioh
had been struok with a club and
splashed all over creation.
It will be remembered that Judge
Jones, of the supreme court of
Washington Territory, died very recently rather suddenly, and that his
last official aot was to declare the
unconstitutionality of woman suffrage for the territory, in spit, of
its passage by tbe legiilature. We
Were not going to insinuate that
some strong-minded woman of the
Sarah Althea type "got stray1' with
the Judge, but merely propose to
2upte a remark of tah« Whatcom
lemocrof on tha decision in question.
Differing with an opposite expression in the BeveSli ft lays: "But
■ound-minded men and women are
proud of it, and feel thankful that
Judge Jonei survived thii Ufa king
enough to raise such a monument to
hii memory as wai hii lut official
act—hii deciiion disfranchising women of Waihington Territory."
We luppose our cotemporary has
got a right to express himtelf as h.
sees fit on tbe main quettion, but
[isn't "inrvived thii life," in th.
above connection, just a leetle bit
Irish!
The Bopublioan press iu the United States have been talking very
glibly about the pauper labor of free
trade countries, but recent discoveries made in Chicago havo ihown
ii..,t, lu ...wii. u( the large shops of
that city there exists an atrocious
•yitetu of white ilavery, and women
are employed at starvation rates.
To take an example, the average
wages paid by clothing houses arc
$3 a week. At a police oourt investigation, a woman who wai
working for $3 a week, after relating n pitiful story of misery, said:
"The only way a girl can keep ber
place or earn enough to keep body
and eoul together is by giving up
everything to the men, who pay tlio
wages." Thii i« * condition of
attain enisling in one of the principal cities of a highly protected
country. A Chicago journal in
commenting on the facts says : "In
many of the large ihopi there is
found an abominable system of
whito slavery, It il almost impossible for a virtuoui woman to retain
her place, anaeven at the beat th.
wngei paid ore lhamefully small.
Thousand! of people have been
touched by the 'Song of the Shirt,'
but its pathos and misery are exceeded by the actual condition of
affairs in Chicago, snd presumably
in every large city in the country."—jfet

ret of our naval torpedo qstem upon
which the government hM relied as a

LosboK, Sept 5.—The very remarkable ud altogether unnatural quiitude
which hll oharacteriicd Lord Randolph Churchill of late hai irbused
luipiciont among the members of the
government whioh have led to the discovery that thit would-be leader il or-
ringing a formidable cabal whole

Whit particular object Lord Randolph
Churchill hai in view can only be conjectured, but it ii life to assume hii

bondi (at the face value) of the company, issued on said line td the commissioner, principal payable in 25
yean, bearing intereit at the rate of
five per cent per annum, payable annually.   The. company will build a

on the northaid* of the river, in the
oity,- Bridge to be completed by
July next, but in the-nieantiuie a
temporary- bridge'Hfill'be-built, to

once.   Government to give a bonus
of 140,000 - in aid of bridge.   Regarding the Portage extension, coni-
mlisioner shall go on with, the work
', of building the, road, under the direction of the company, and it shall
be completed by November 1st next,
:  Money to. be paid by commissioner,
upon order of the oompauyv but not
to exceed the sum of §400,000, the
oompany to provide all money necessary to complete the line, over the
turn named.   All money paid out by
commissioner to be poid by company
before May lit, 1889:   In the mean-
,   time the company shall operate the
<   road, but the commissioner shall retain possession" thereof  until  the

the commissioner, the latter shall bo

in further default up to August 1st,
1889, tho commissioner shall also
beentitled to take full possession of

boine river at Portage la Prairie, in

piTo*,. covenants to construct a railway Irom the   Red   River Valley
Bailway. at   Morris  to  Brandon,
within one year from the 1st day of
November, 1889,and to [construct

time to come to a settlement, Hon. 1
Mr. Bowell said that ho was very
glad that his attention had been
called to tliis.jmportanternntter. ■ It
hid nt)t i lioefll lost sight of by thb
Dominion,iliowinur, for thoy hay
had their most nininar* i*ologiite
and geographers in the Yukon regions, among them Dr. Dawson.
He could say that the government
had the matter under consideration,
and that every effort would be made
by the Dominion to have a fair settlement of the boundary between
Alaska and British Columbia. In
the matter of the deep sea. fisheries;
Mr. Smith stated, what is already
known, that the exploratory survey
had been abandoned for this season,
tbe reason being that the government steamer had been Bent north
in re the Indian troubles, ■' This is a
matter which we would urge the
government not to postpone unnecessarily. Referring to the Behring
Sea matter the minister of customs
said that it had not been neglected.
The strongest and most forcible representations had beon made; but lie
believed that. the matter would not
be settled until uf tor the coming
presidential election.. The question
would probably oome before the
United States supreme court,.and'
nothing could be definitely settled
until a decision had been reached
there. It.must also be .remembered
that American sealers had* been
seized as well as those under the
British flag. Deputy i minister
Smith informed the board, in answer
to recommendations on the subject,
that tho matter of regulating the
number of floats on salmon rivers
was now being considered by the department and would no doubt be
satisfactorily arranged, While the
department are about it, we would
suggest the advisability of extending
the close time for salmon and "regulating" as well the fishing outside
theriver mouth. In reference to
light-houses, navigation, ate., Mr.
Smith said tlmt it was the intention
of the government to establish a
telegraph station either at Bonilla
Point or San Juan harbor. The
opinion of practical men seethed to
be that the station should tie planed
at the entrance of Sari Juuu hurbor,
which in the future might be made
a harbor of refuge, by the .construction of a bleak-water.' : The government had come to thb conclusion
that light-houses should be erected
on Patos and Stuart.'Inlands, Gulf
of Giioi'giu. These wore American
islands, and the mat: er was placed
before the Washington .authorities,
who had promised that, the new
lights would be erected. A fog hofri
would also be placed at Point Atr
kinson. Adverting to the Fraser
River, Mr. Smith said that the government were endeavoring to confine the channel of the river in order,
that sea-goin'j vessels might ascend
with safety to Westminster. Tho
people of that city asked that a new,
chart of the river be made, and he
saw no good reason why this should
not be. done. Various other matters
Were discussed, and 'Hon. Mr. Bowell, in reply to the l hanks of the
board to liimsolf and Mr. Smith,
said that he was moro than pleased
to havo been present; and-while he
Would not promise that any of the
matters submitted would be carried
out, he could assure them that all
would be placed before his colleagues
and would receivo fair consideration.

navigation improvements generally.
It waa ihown by the board that the
Alalia boundary question was one
that should be settled without delay;
the Americans had a large parly in

that the Americans were going to
lay claim to a great deal that wai
within the provinoe. It wai nt first

©Offlffised Mveral'million acres, and
there were valuable mines ill the vi-

In ap interview at Toronto, Rev.
Dr. Sutherland stated that the meeting of the general board of Metoditt
ministers in Winnipeg on September
11th will be of more than ordinary
interest. Among other important
quostions to come up will bo Ihe  pro-
Sosed union of Methodist inissioriB' in
iipiui, Indian troubles on Ihe Pacific
coast, and Chineae work, all of which
demand serious consideration. Dr.
Sutherland think, it a satire on our
Christian civilization that a missionary
aociety should hive tb pay a fine of
$250 in order to secure permission for
a Chinese Christian with hii family to
come into the Dominion for the purpose of preaching the gospel to hu
fellow-countrymen. Another import-
tant subject will bo the educational
work of the church among the French
in Quebec.

Mr. J". S. Cluto, collector of cuibonu,

The writer lays British Columbia it attracting considerable attention among
thoee who think of emigrating.
Ai immigrants coming from New Zealand are of the mint .desirable class
tho provihee should be prepared to
offer them eomo inducements, or at

that the horiemin in question is in the

Editor Columbus.— In reference to
your corretpondinc. in Thi Com mbias of
Aug. 22nd, from Upper Sumat, I with to
correct certain falw statement!: lit, the
former bed of the Vedder oisek was no(
the Lnck-a-kuek. Thil your correspondent must b.ve known If he knew anything of th. matter that would doubt-
leu be dlscutsed at the Influential (?)
meeting held at Upper Sumui 2nd, the
uttlerB of Chilliwhack noe'r erected an
embankment tithe old channel of the
Vedder creek; the only thing of that
kind ever done was to close up a ditch
opened to carry witer to the mill owned
by Kobert Stevenson, and that embankment certain law-abiding (f) citizens tore
out twp or three doys after. We had almost concluded that Somas, or Upper
Sumu, whichever it it, had already organized'a band, of moonlighters or Sabbath desiicrators to remove the' 'inbstau-
tial embankment erected by the Chilliwhack settlors," if we were to judge by
tho amount of powder or dynamite thoy
are managing to explode in the jam at.
the head of the Luok-a-kuok at midnight
and on the Sabbath day. Wo can, however, assure Upper Sumps that they will
prove about at effectual in turn'ig the
waters of. Vedder creek into the channel
of the Luck-a-kuck as the cacoethes scri-
bendi of your correspondent or the unanimous re. olutiont of influential (?) Upper
SumBB meetings; as it will be found the
"substantial embankment erectors of
Chilliwhack" will havo something to say
and do when it comes to diverting from
its real channel the waters of Vedder
