"Negligent, sulky, insolent Ottawa tnal-odministrators," is the title
of a lending article in a recent Globe,
He does not fail in candor, anyway,
the man who wrote that.

It will be a great thing for the man
who has been out all night and findi
in the morning that his head cannot

Private Secretary Lamont de;
dares that Mrs. Cleveland never
haa given and will not now give in
interview to any newspaper or in
any mariner do anything to encourage mention of herself in the press.
Quite right, ma'am; let Dan Snd the
old man do the show buiineu.   -'
The "silent Von Moltke" iin't at
all silent at home. He is, on the
oontrary, a charming) lively and
amiable companion. He is very
fond of the wife of his nephew, who
presides over his household, and of
her children. He loves roses; and
of these flowen cultivates a great
variety.
A dejpatoh dated Providence,
Sept 28, says: A large silk balloon,
its car deserted, and drifting, was
captured on Cumberland Hill thii
morning, where it eaught among the
trees. The addreu of "Carl Myers,
Mohawh, N. Y.," was found on it,
-and a bit of a Buffalo newspaper
pinned to the basket, on which was
pencilled: "Met our death in the
clouds."
Says an American exchange: "The
circuit court in Portland has decided
"that a man without any visible
means of earning! livelihood and:
who stands about the streets and
loiters in saloons md gambling
houses and frequents houses of prostitution, is • vagrant, no matter how
much money he may have or what
'bis income may be. The tramps
will probably resent this attempt to
put well-dressed .scoundrels on an
equality with themse'Ttes."
Until recent years the "SbJrge of
powder for great "guns " uiually
weighed from' one-sixth to one tenth
:the shot, whereas in the new built-
up steel guns the charge has been
increased to one-half the weight of
the projectile. The 110-ton guns of
the British battle-ship Benbow fire
a shot weighing 1,800 pounds with
a charge of 1,000 pounds of powder,
and the 139-ton Krupp gun now
building and designed to pierce 47
inches of wrought iron will hive a
still heavier charge.
'. The Vanoouver World myi: The
evening paper alwayi cotchei the
news. This is only natural. The
day's happenings are alwayi more
interesting than those of the night
Situated as we are on the Pacific
Ooait, ooniidering the difference in
time, it must be remembered that
the day's doings form the text of
the evening paper'i diipotchei. Thii
fact must not be lost sight of. That
the evening paper hai the circulation and influence, the journalistic
history of the principal Canadian
oitiei testifies. The World it an

oluiloni,
Tacoma is crowing, through its
enterpriiing preu, long and loud.
The "city of destiny" aipirei to cut
out Portland as the metropolis of
the American Northwest The
Northern Pacific is favoring it, md
tho city is, unmistakably, making
rapid strides, A late Ledger says:
"Tacoma beats the record this morning. There are twenvy-two ocean
sailing veueli in port, the largest
number ever seen here at one time,
five are loading wheat, seventeen are
loading lumber and five are loading
coal. There are but fivo ocean sailing veueli in Seattle and nine in
Portland,"
: Every person in search of a business location iu Whatcom who ia
turned away by high prices of real
estate will give an unfavorable report of this city wherever he goes.
For every businesa man who locates
here property will have an increase
of value. .The policy pursued by
properly owners will decide whether
the town shall become a growing;
and important city or a dead hamlet. Liberality will meet iti just
reward and penuriousneu its deserved punishment. — Democrat. Our

USI NIGHTS DESPATCHES.
H0F.H0HS AD NAUSBAM,
Loudon, Oct. 2.—The partially decomposed trunk of a woman found io
a receu of the Tbsmei embankment
by tbe police to-diy wai removed to
mortuarv shir.it will be eiamlnedby
eiperti to-morrow. . Th. -polio, huve
preserved the anna and head found
in the Thames near Lambeth and ex•
prei! the hope that they will lit the
body. Otherwise evidence ia establish-
ed of two more murdera having been
committed imtead of one. The body
ii hideously putrifjed and bean- every
indication of having been mutilated
■ereral monthi ago. It ii also evident
it haa never been interred. The sen-
sation produced by the Undine of tbe
body ii limply terrific. The police
are aa far as ever from any clue of any
practical value in the detection of the
.Whitechapel murderer and the feeling
of insecurity and consternation ii thereby greatly enhanced. The woman
murdered in Mitre Square hai not yet
been definitely identified and the
identification of the nno found in
Bemer itreet is very doubtful despite
the evidence given t>y her alleged sister at the inquest to-day, Prof.
Aixe, principal of the Royal Veterinary college, hu expreued himself
very decidedly in favor of the proposal
to place blood hounds it the eaitern
and weitern police itatiom in the east
end and have them trained and kept
in readiness for immediate use in hunting the murderer down. The profes-
■or'i belief in the utility of these
ferocious animals aa an auxiliary to the
police ia strengthened by his conviction
that the murderer will soon resume his
butcheries in view of his phenomenal
eucceu in eluding detection.' - A general dread of the appearance of the
murderer in other district, of London
has greatly stimulated subscription! to
I the vafiout funds being raised as a reward for hii capture and the aggregate
■urn ttow available is upwards of
(10,000.
' whuan's wish.
London, Oot. 2.—Mr. Eriitus Wi-
man'i luppreued letter it publiihed in
all the psperi ud has created muoh
amutement in Canadian circle, at letting the cat out of the commercial
union bag, iho?ing that political union
with the Statea wai the ultimate end
ol Mr. Wiman's movement. The St.
Jama' Qetttte to-night sayi that Mr.
Wiroan is very kind to give no early
information jn regard to the invitation
to Canada to link her interests in thoso
of the United States. Englind, however, knew all about it aome time ago
and did not give it much attention.
If Canada ever became discontented
with her preient condition of liberty
or thinki to better it by becoming a
part of the United Statei, the Americans ihould wait until Canada herself
minifetti a desire to haul down the
Britiih flag.

BLOODTHIESIY NATIVES.
Zanzibab, Oct. 2.—The German!
who wer. murdered by the natives at
Kecma, defended themselves ai long ns
pouible and died bravely. The German gun-bolt which waa preient could
do nothing on account of the thousand!
of armed native! on the cout. The
bodiei of the victims wen horribly
mutilated. An English gun-boat uved iome of the Germans at Linde. At
Mikindini the Germans escaped before the Iniurgenti arrived The entire wealthy community of Britiih

Tho board of health aro busy these
days going thnir uncongenial rounds
among the less savory portions of
our city. The chairmon of the board
has been making a tour, accompanied
by one of the constables, in the
vioinity of the swamp, among the
Ohjneao qusrteri, and the hotels in
that part of the town. Theie very
rueeuary and -thorough investigation, are ditoloiing a terrible itate
of filth, not only in connection with
the Chinese quarters, but also with
respect to the backyard arrangement! of hotels and other buildings.
Some idea of the state of things may
be imagined when it is stated that a
few consecutive hours' faithful inquisition after, dirt renders the unfortunate inquisitors themselves
nearly hers de combat. A great
deal of this disagreeable work re-
maim yet to be done, however, and
it is to be hoped that the board of
health, in their arduous labors for
the publio good, may receive every
encouragement and assistance possible, instead of having obstacles
thrown in their way. A thorough
inspection of the sanitary condition
of the. city is sure to have beneficial
results, even if the threatened smallpox epidemic ihould pass by our
aoon, whioh is still possible. Westminster has the reputation of being
a dirty town—a stigma which every
citizen should feel an interest in having wiped out. It is almost certain
that the investigation now proceeding will show that there is a great
deal more of what might be called
latent filth in tho city than nnyone
suspects. If there is one fact, probably, that: will be emphasized moro
than another as a result of the investigation, it must be that, without.
a perfect system of city water works
and city 'sewerage, it will be found
practically impossible to improve our
sanitary condition in a permanent
and satisfactory sense. It will be
well if this lesson is forcibly impreued upon our citizens, so that the
necessity for action may lead to a
comprehensive and adequate scheme
being undertaken by next year, at
ths latest, for supplying the eity
with a much-needed water and sewerage system. In the meantime, no
efforts should be spared, so far as may
be done with our present imperfect
appliances, to improve the sanitary
condition of the city. Even if there
were not the remotest intimation of
an epidemic disease, a general cleanup is badly needed. That there is
enough pestilence-breeding filth in
the city to evolve a plague, without
any infection from the outside, cannot be doubted. We have the
blessing of an unexampled salubrious
climate to thank for our escaping so
lightly at all times.
In the coune of an article in
which the hope il earnestly expressed
that, in. the United States, international questions may hereafter be
kept in abeyance during the pending
of presidential election*, the St Paul
Pioneer JPreM lays: "There is little
choice between the two Houses or
between the two parties in their
ahort-iighted partisan treatment of
the gravest questions of foreign policy, .* * * The whole business,pf
making campaign material out of
our international relations is extremely discreditable, and must
make our government a reproach and
a scandal in the .yes of the world."
An eastern Canadian journal, commenting upon the admission, says:
"The coune of the executive und of
congreu with regard to the retaliation question has certainly been immoral enough, but the more recent
action of the latter in the matter of
the Chinese treaty is, if possible,
worse. In both cares party strife
hu overshadowed everything else,
and in the Chinese matter especially
it aeemi to have driven all sense of
deoency out of the heads of the representatives of the people of the
United States." Apropos of the
recent signing by the president of
the Chinese exclusion .bill, we quote
the following from the Canadian paper referred to: "As our readers
have already been told in theso columns, a rumor reached Washington
by way of London a few days ago
to the effect that the Chinese government had refused to ratify the
nsvr treaty, providing for the exclusion, of Chinese laborers from the
United States, which had been sent
to it last spring for that purpose.
Without waiting for official confirmation of this alleged news, a prominent democrat haitened to intra-
duce in the house a rigid exclusion
bill, involving indignity to a power
with whioh the United States has
had specially amicable relations for
years. It is said that this measure
wu prepared at the White House,
and its object, of course, was the
creation of political capital for the
democratic party on the Pacifio
cout The bill was rushed through
the house in one day under a suspension of the rules, no quorum being present. No vote by yeas and
nays was taken, nor was there any
reference to the foreign relations
committee. The bill was whisked
through'in a few minutes, and hurried off to the lenate. There all
buiineu wai arreited in order that
it might be at once pnt on its wsy
trfth*^,*a*l*r»noe to the usual committee, For various reasons, how-
*vw,» delay of thise ot lour days
«e«mcaj,sr4' in ths mtantims sffi-
cial information was received at the
state department that thero was no
truth whatever in tho rumor upon
which this hysterical legislation was
based, but that5 the Chinese goveriff
ment hod the.treaty under consideration. Did,the senate then thro-r.
the bill aside, as it should in honor
have done? Not a bit of it. Had'
not tbe democratic house scored a
point by passing it in the first place,
and must not the republican senate
" even up " the tally by a similar
stroke! The bill wai accordingly
passed by the latter body on Wed-'
nesday last, and now goes for signature to the preiident. Notwithstanding that it conveys needless
offense and insult to China, there is
only too much reason to believe that.
" party exigencies" will not allow
Mr. Cleveland to veto it. Should
he do so he would destroy all the
advantage gained by the democrats
on the Pacific coast. Prior to the
delivery of the retaliation message it
would not have been difficult to believe that with him the honor of his
country in such a case would stand
first; but we know now that, like
almost every other politician in the
United States, and, like too many
in other countries, he thinks only of
party at election time. The United
States has done more this summer
than it eVer did before to teach for-
eign nations that an essential qualification, for occupanoy of the White
House is ability to twist the tail of
the British Honor yank tho queue
of the heathen Chinee." While: the
foregoing is a pretty fair statement
of the case, containing many forcible
truths and correct conclusions, it
will be as well to remember that
eastern journals — Canadian and
American—hnvo never been noted
for exhibiting a thorough grasp of
tho Chinese question, lacking, ns
they do, the sevme lessons of practical experience which have been bestowed so liberally upon tlio people
of the Pacific coast, and are consequently disposed to regard the
" heathen Chinee" with more toleration and affliction than those better
acquainted can vouchsafe.

the total number of slurs one can aee

Diss r)< the .tmoipherc and the keenness
of tho eye.
There nre in the wholo celcstlni sphere
about six thomand stars visible to an
ordinarily good eye. Ol these, however,
we can never see more than a fraction nt
any one time, because n half ol* the sphere
il always below the horizon'.'1   ■ '■■'■
It wo conld aee a star In the horizon ns
oaaily as in the zenith n half of the whole
number, or 8,000, would be visible on any

'phere.«. greatly to ohicnre 'their Unlit.,
avnil only the brightest ones can rthero.be
Seen,    J ■',
'. As . result of this otiscuratioii It is riot
likely that more than 3,000 stiu-s can ever
be taken In nt a single view hy any ordinary eye. About 2,000 other stars are so
near the south polo Hint. t iicy never rise
inoutilatitinlea. Hence, outut'd.CO.Jniip-
poacd to be visible,onlyl.oOOi.vei-conie
within the range of our vision, unless we
mako a journey toward the equator.
Ai telescopic power Islucrensedi westill
find stars of fainter ami fainter light.
But the number oaritiot po on increasing
forever in th. same ratio ns with, the
' Srlghtermngultuili.s,i)ecaiiso If it did tha,
"Whole Iky .would be u.lihzo of starlight. ,
If telelcopei with powers far exceeding
our preient ones wero made, they would
no doubt ihow new stars of the .twentieth, twenty-first, etc., magnitudes. But
it ll highly probable that the number of
inch succeislvo orders of .stars would not

In tho eighth,'ninth and' tenth magnitude!, for example.
fi, Thi enormous labor of estimating the
liumber of stars of siich chides will long
prevent the accumulation of statistics on
thil question; hut this much is certain,
that in special regions of the nky, which
hive been leai-chlngly examined hy varioui telescopes of successively increasing
apertures, ths number of new stars found
ll Uy no means in proportion to tho increased Instrumental power.
If this is found tu he true elsewhere, tho
conclusion may be that, after all, tha
stellar .system can ho experimentally
shown to be of finite extent., nnd to contain only a Unite number of utiirs,
. In the whole sky .(in eye of average
power will seo abou 10,000 stars, as I have
just laid. With a telescope this number
i, greatly increased, aud the most powerful telescopes of modern times will show
mors than 60,000,000 stars. Of this number not one out of 100 hue ovor beon catalogued at all.
In ill; 814,020stars, from the first to tho

Serious Accident.
Thia morning while Robert MoMur-
phy was moving aome planking on the
top scaffold of Mr. Thos. Ovens' now
building, he slipped and fell, carrying
a plank with him. The plank caught
on the toaffold underneath, which
broke McMurphy'a fall and earned him
to light on hit feet, though he instantly
fell forward on hii face, insensible. Dr.
Cooper was summoned and-found, on
examination, that tho injured man had
received a bad bruiae on the arm and
hnd hurt hii back, bnt to what extent
ia not yet known. Mr. McMurphy was
removed te his home and.is reported to
be resting ai easily as might be expected under the circumstances.

Mr. Thos. Sirr, of the North . Arm,
died suddenly at 3 o'olock thia morning.
Lait night he wont to bed in; hii usual
atate of health, not hiving complained
of any illness or pain. It is supposed
death wat earned by an affection of the
heart. The deceased was one of British Columbia1! earliest pioneen and,
for many years followed gold digging
in the Cariboo country. Some yean
ago ho left the interior and settled .in
Westminster and wat engaged in business in this city for several yean. Ho
has latterly been farming on the North
Arm wliero he was muoh respected by
the whole community. Although over
55 years, Mr. Sirr looked itrong and
vigorous enough to itand tlio ttormi

Wrestling Exhlliltl.n.
A wreatling exhibition will bo given
in Herring's opera house this evening
by Messrs. Cameron and McHonry,
who claim to hail from Victoria. The
stylcB of wrestling will be "Catch-as-
catch-can" and "Grmco Bomiin." The
exhibitor! do not claim to be wrestling
for " keeps " but simply to givo an interesting exhibition of the science of
wrestling. Either of them offer $50
to any man in British Columbia who
can stand before them' 20 minutes
without being thrown. This is open
to McKeown, Richardson, or anyone
else. Mr. Cameron wrestles' 'Richardson of Illicillewaet next week for 8500
a aide, and he ii now in training for
the event. It will be remembered that
Richardion defeated McKeown of
Vanoouver a few weeki ago, which
ihould make the coming contest a very
interesting affair. The exhibition tonight will be well worth leeing.

Mr, W. H, Higgins returned from
Ottawa yesterday, hiving concluded,
all arrangements for tho construction
of the Roai-McLaron saw mills. During
his stay iu Ottawa the lumber company
was formed and application lins been
made for ita incorporation, Mr. Higgins is a large shareholder in the company. From Mr. Higgins we learn'
that work on the mill site will be commenced forthwith and there will bo
no unnecessary cessation until tho
whole is completed and in full operation, which will be not later than
June lit, 1880. It has been decided
to put in bind sawa for the purpoie of
wood saving. Thii clus oi siwi have
only been introduced of late, but the
eoonomy in using them will be
easily appreciated when it is known
the waste is only an J- of an inch
instead of the one-half inch of timber
waited by the saw now generally in
uae. The senior member of the new
company, Senator Boil, died yeiterday, which ia an event to be sincerely
regretted.

.  A Heavy niltcr. I
The Whatcom Democrat reports a
local "affair" in this way:,"The
slugging matoh that cam. off in our,
street! tho other day between n man
from the country and one of our town
men, mutt have been under the Mar-
quii of Queenibury rules, at one of
the contestants wsi not in training at
iho time and wis accordingly ruled
out as a "heavy weight." When time
was called for the first round, tho
country fellow let drive a terrific blow
with hie right, following up. with his
loft, the report of the concussion being
heard as far at New Weitmimter, and
wat .thought by some of the people
over there to be a pile driver hammering tho iron potts on the boundary
line further down in the ground.
Round two: The oity min'i cheek!
wero by thii time so twollen that hii
belligerent antagonist wai puzzled to
decide where to plant hii next blow,
above or below the belt, and pauiod—
fatal pause, as the referee had four bits
up on the town man, arid in order to
hedge, declared the battle a draw.
This is tho only reliable story of it,
