NOTES AND COMMENTS.
William II., the new emperor of
Germnny, spent two yean learning
to sot type und one year in a press
room. It muy be that a fairly good
printer wm ipoiled to make a bad
emperor.   Ihe future will ihow.
Tbe native! of Santo, in tbe New
Hebrides, have an idea that they go,
after death to one ol two places,
the difference between which is one
Of degree merely. All ordinary
people go fo the second class place.
The first class place is reserved for
those who are killed in war and
eaten by their enemies, and for—
pigs! We have a good deal of
heathen superstition, but sending
pigs to heaven, strikes ui as unique.
Wo ran across a good little story
the othen day which may have a
moral in it for somebody.' At a "revival" meeting, the preacher requested all in the oongregatiori who
paid their debt! to rise... The riling
was general. After they had taken
their seats a call wai made for those
who didn't pay their debts, and one
solitary individual arose, who explained that he was the proprietor
of a Church paper, and could not
pay because the rest of the congregation were owing him their
subscriptions.
The Manitoba government is satisfied with the Northern Pacific railroad company, and ihe people of
that province will soon be relieved
of the oppressions of the Canadian
Pacific company.—Tacoma Ledger,
Our American cotemporary would
no doubt like to convey the. impression that the 0. P. R. wai a sinner

Referring to toe emperor of Austria, a ment writer says:—"He has
no (site for court gaiety, and leads
rather a solitary life, retiring early
and rising with the dawn. When,
however, hit presence is necessary
at official ceremonies or festive gatherings, he is one of the most punctual of men. Hii only passion is
grouse shooting, and in the lesion
he frequently slips away from Vienna to the Alpine forests to indulge
in hi. favorite sport. He is very
charitable, and, having a large fortune of hii own, distributes hii
bounties freely, though diicreetly.
Francis Joseph ia sever ill, and owe.
hia excellent health' to hii conitant
occupation and proverbial sobriety."
The Manchester ship canal promises to bo an extraordinary enterprise, ind the work on th. fint section ii being pushed forward with
remarkable rapidity. In Cheshire,
at the part where it ii proposed to
enter the Mersey, great docks are
being cut, and between. there and
Ellesoiere Port, a distance of a little
Aver four miles, and comprising
what ii known ai Eaitham Motion,
there are engaged no fewer than
1,700 men working day ind night
on the ground, There are alio 22
locoiootives employed in drawing
tlm debrit away after it ii railed by
eleven steam exacavatnn. These
enormous machines dig out the
channel for the canal and dispose of
the earth at the daily rate of nearly
'600 yards. The width of the canal
from bank to bank will be 300 feet,
■tnd at the bottom about 120 feet
"It,is said that the Imperial government advises a waiting policy nn
Canada's part." 80 say the wires
ih a dispatch about the retaliation
matter. If the wires are right, the
Imperial government is right also,
for once. Indeed, under all the
circumstances, one cini scarcely
imagine Canada doing anything else.
Any attempt to anticipate the possible action of the United States
would be a sacrifice of Ihe excellent
position which Canada now occupies
in the matter. She has never asked
for more than a fair adjustment of
points in dispute; she hai done all
sho could to bring about such an
adjustment, anil it ia evidently her
duty to herself to wait quietly the
course of events, and to let it be
distinctly understood that she means
to iniiat upon a due respect being
paid tolier rights, and to equally
ready to hold neighborly intercoune
with friends or to meet the hostile
advance! of cneuiies.

Lowoh, Sept. 8.—Sir Charles Tup-
per to-night replied for the colonies at
thi Outleri' banquet st Shtfheld, ana
referred to th. fisheries quettion. Be
uid that grcit ignorance prevailed in
England with regard to the lubjeot
generally arid to 'Mr. Chamberlain in
particular. Fromth. ipeciil advantage! he hid hid of judsjng, he asserted that it would have been impossible
for ttia> government to hare selected a
man better qualified for the position
or for the diichirge of the duties to
hive ditpltyed more ability and uniform ditcretion. From the reception
he received from both republican, and
democrats alike, no man could have
been more acceptable to the people of
the United Statei. Canada to-day, he
■aid, was face to face with the fict that
with unanimity the States had pasted
a non-intercoune bill.. Although the
senate had determined that the preii-
dent ihould not have the Kudos of a
■ettlement of the question in view of
tho election, yet the president and the
administration had sent tbe treat;
down with the declaration thit it waa
a fair and honorable adjustment of the
difficulties. Without eipresting any
opinion regarding the menage, he
might aay that all that Canada asks is a
fair, plain application of the principle!
of the treaty of 1818. Canada had
gone ii fir u possible for tbe purpose
of maintaining friendly relations with
the republic, but the time would never
come when the people of Canada, owning ai they did the mother country,
would idopt a policy, fiscal or other-
win, detrimental to the British people, The government of Canada would
pursue the policy followed on previous
occisiont ind deal with the quettion
with firmness ind with a deep contid-
.ration of the calamity that from no
act of indiscretion on the part of the
Canidiin government would any difficulty trite from the inconsiderate
menage or tha president to congieu,

Sailg f titiah dolawbian
There are nuisauees and nistoiwes.
To the latter,fotf belong the steafli-
boatwhiltleB on the river. These
begin at an unearthly hour in tho
morning, when tho virtuous citizen,
to use an expression of Mrs. Part
ington's, is' lockeb. in the "embrace
ol Murphy." They thriak and they
howl like reitles! and malevolent
spirits wandering gloomily in some
"vasty deep." The ilumbering citi-
un on Front, Oolumbia, and adjacent itreet. is rudely startled from
hii repose and brought up itanding,
hair on end and oye. protruding, at
from 3.30 to 6.30 in the morning,
and thereafter compelled to s-i-wear
an accompaniment to the remorseless howling and tooting of the deep-
voiced leviathans churning the water
at their moorings. Time was, when
the royal city was a wrt of "sleepy
hollow," that overy oitizen took a
sort of peraonal pride in the iron-
throated soreeohers, and the steamboat that mode the moat noise naturally "took the oake." But these
times are past. In our very much
altered circumstances, we have noise
enough to keep us from beoorning
drowsy, and desire that the altogether hideous and wholly unnecessary
steamboat whistle should be suppressed, as it is in other civilized
communities. Nervoui people and
invalids oannot but experience a
great deal more annoyance and injury from this nuisance than the average healthy citizen, and for this
reason alone it should be greatly
abated, if not entirely suppressed.
Evidences are not wanting, besides
the communication which we publish to day on the subject, to indicate that the people of the royal
oity have exhausted their proverbially large stock of patience, so far
aa steamboat whistles are concerned,
and will insist on their convenience
and comfort being considered in the
matter. We believe that the gallant steamboat men, if satisfied that
their efforts were not appreciated,
would be perfectly agreeable to close
the show. If not, the city has got
a casting vote in tlie matter, and it
ihould be exercised.
Elsewhere we publish a report of
the ipecial council meeting held lait
night, at **kh tbe Westminster
Southern Railway Company submitted a certain agreement and made a
certain request, both of which will
be found in the report. The action
ol the council in taking further time
to consider the rather extraordinary
yropuailkm placed Wore them ia to
be commended. It was certainly
never contemplated by either the
by-laws or the agreements that the
amount of the bonuaae ihould be
handed ever in the manner luggetted
by the proposition in question. We
reprint below clauses 5, 6 and 7 of
Tlio wasteful destructiveness of
tho "human aniuial"—tho result generally,,^ thoughtlessness combined
with :«upidity—causat him in ell
ages slid in every clttie to keep on
repeating the senseless snd suicidal
operation of wringing the neck of the
fabled "goose that lays the golden
egg." This same propensity ia responsible for the total destruction of
valuablo forests, the impoverishing
of onoe rich and fertile soil, the extinction of the noble Anierioan bison,
tbe rapid diaappearahoe of other
game and fur-bearing animals, and
the reckless slaughter, and consequent alarming deoreue of the various fishei of commerce from river,
lake and sea. British Oolumbia is
not the only place where this destructive spirit crops up aud requires
to be checked with a firm hand, in
the interests of the industries of tlio
country. A few weeks since a deputation waited on Sir Michael Hicks-
Beach to call attention to the growing praotice of exposing immature
fish for sale in the London, Eng.,
markets instead of immediately returning them to the sea when accidentally caught in the nets or otherwise. "Here we have a matter of
a somewhat different character to
complain of," Boys the Toronto Empire, "namely, the praotice of returning to the lake large quantities of
immature fish in a half-dead condition. Many of our fishermen are
almost criminally careless in this
respect; they capture largo numbers
of fish from three or four inches to
lix or seven in length, and instead
of instantly sorting them out and
restoring these small fry to the
water at once they stupidly allow
them to remain with the rest of the
catch till the day's work or sport is
over, and then throw them back in
a dying condition into the lake.
Wo have'often seen the shore lined
with the dead bodies of such fish
driven in by the wind and waves,
and we are sure that our readers
will agree with us that it is high
time to put a stop to such indiscriminate slaughter." While salmon
caught in the Fraser are no longer
returned to theriver dead in largo
quantities(oratall,thatweare aware),
as has been done in "Bush" fishing
seawns in the past, a demoralizing—
or more properly, perhaps, an unduly
de-salmonizing—system of fishing is
being carried on, and each year is
being aggravated in some of its
wont features, which must surely
and swiftly tell against the future of
what ihould be at least an undimin-
ishing source ol industrial wealth to
the province. It is hardly neceuary
to repeat again that too many boati
are allowed on the river, and that
the tendenoy-^-anoTthe faot—ii that
the number ii increasing every year,
until nearly double what the river
can accommodate have been licensed.
As a consequence, several hundred
of these get out on the aandheods,
and with their neta block; every imaginable means of ingress to the

A good illustration ot' the effect of
thia sort of thing ia at hand. It
wu stated a few weeks ago that the
sockeye run, which had proved a
failure, was over for this season, and
that a large number of- boats had
been taken off the river'; to .wait the
oohoes. The reports of the last few
days show that sookeyes are now
being caught in greater numbers
than ever before this season, although
the noturul time for the run ii over
and that of the colioes haa commenced. Tho reason for this is obvious. Tho same thing occurred
last year. Prevented from entering
the river in their natural order, the
sockeyes which have been hovering
around the bays and inlets, near the
river mouth, return and enter when
the majority of the boat, and net.
have been removed. The necessity
for remedying this state of things
is plain.

Ah! there bo il, and with htm Madeline

belle, leaning on his arm.
Myrtle Howard had been on a visit,
previous to. which Lewis Stanley hnd paid
her coflilderable attention, aud ibe had
allowed herself to love hhu, while Lewis
had only a brother's lore for her, telling
beroften that she reminded hlm ot hia

cared for him, so wain she went .way he
commenced to go with. Madeline Vernon,

treated her woll to her face, limy did not

Maddle and Myrtle bad always been
warm friends, but now, ns Myrtle stood
und watched Lew.ls nml Madilk1, saw how
fondly ho looked down into tlio bright,
sparkling face, r,be hiitcd Miuk-llno Vernon, for she felt that LewisVtts lost to
her forever; and now, though Maddlo did
hot know it, sho had niiido an enemy that
would leave no stone unturned- to- blight
her young life, for tho cvllln Myrtle's
nature had' been nrousetl anil It would
make the hearts of Madeline Vernon and.
Lewis Stanley ache.
Myrtle left the window and withstatcly

At 11 o'clock t&ii morning . deputation oonaiating of D.Chiiholm,M.P.,
W. Norman Bole, Q.C., M.P.P., John
Hendry, president board of tnde, and
Senator Mclnnes, waited upon the
Hon. Mackenzie Bowell with reference
to tlie export duty impoted upon pile,
•hipped from Britiih Colnmbla. The
matter having been carefully and exhaustively discussed the miniiter' promised that the subect would
receive the immediate attention
of the government. The deputation alio diuuued the noceuity of
a chut for the Fnier River, the np-
Eointment of a local inspector of the
uoyi ind the iteel plating ol th.
inigboat for ice breaking pnrpoiei in
winter. After a prolonged interview,
during which the miniiter favorably
impressed hit interviewer! with hii
willingness to do all in hit power to
further the intereiti of the province,
he left for the nilwiy station, accompanied by the deputation, and wu
there met by Hu Wonhip Mayor
Dickinson, who alio drew the minii-
tet'a attention to several matters concerning the city. After bidding a
hearty farewell to Mr. Bowell the deputation withdrew.
The new reiidence lately built by
W. Norman Bole, Q.C., hu received
iU finishing touches, .nd the family
hu taken poueuion. The building
nnki equal, if not superior, in stylo,
finish and convenience, to any In the
Srnvinco, and itt lituation, corner of
lary and Agnoi Itreeti, givei it a
commanding view both up and down
the river, which ii only mprassed by a
few of tho more elevated residences
further up the hill. The interior arrangements of the, house, at well u its
architectural beauty, are pleasing in
tosto nnd design. The drawing room,
dining room and library are cheerful
apartments and are handsomely finished in native cedar, choten for its
beauty in grain and color. The dining
room, which ii 30x18 feet in tize, ii
panelled in cedar, and scarcely two
panels being alike in grain sddi to
ita uniqueness. The bedrooms are
large and handsomely fitted end furnished, and bathrooms are provided on
each flat. The pantry* and kitchen
are well arranged for convenience, and
the nme may be said for the outbuilding!. One very noticeable feature in the
houn ii tho tnnsaive fire place in each
loom, whioh, old-fashioned in character, givei i homelike und coiy air to
tho whole, The furnituru and tapet-
triet are rich and expensive and the
choice exhibit! no small degree of
taste. "Altamont" it the name clioson
by Mr. Boll tor hi, line reiidence, ind
considering itt lituation ii mott appropriate. The entire cost of the
building, furnishings, etc., hll been

Rev. Robl. Nourse, who ll considered one of the greatest dramatic orators in the United Statu, hu been
engaged to lecture in thii cityou Sept.
14th and 15th, in connection with the
Young Men'i Christian Astoeiition.
He hu lectured throughout the United
Statei with great mcceu and hu won
the reputation of being witty, eloquent
■nd unsible in hii remark!. "Dr.
Jekyll and Mr. Hyde" and "John and
Jonathan" will be hii lubjecti in thii
city. The following press notice il
clipped from the Battle Creek, Journal:—Dr. Nourte acored mother brilliant lucoeas at the M. E. church lut
evening in hii new lecture, Dr, Jekyll
ind Mr. Hyde. To lay that he maintained his hijjh reputation aa a platform orator ia not laying enough; he
eclipsed himself; and we do not heii-
tnto to uiy that in hii new role Dr.
Nourse hai achieved • mcceu in platform performance! at unrivaled u it
it unique. He ii at once lecturer,
orator and preacher, and in each character exceli. When we remember that
hii thrilling impersonations were made
without Ihe aid of costumei, ittgo icon-
ery, lurid light, or other theatrical
accompaniment, tho sensation produced was the more marvelous. The moral
trend of the lecture wu heightened
by the dramatic power of the orator.
Dr. Nourse ii an actor by nature, and
besides this was trained in the Royal
Dramatic Oullege at England. Thia
powor he has repressed in the pulpit,
and only partially displayed on the
platform hitherto. But thii lecture
givei full play to hii oratorical and
dramatic talent; here hii nitive predilection! and divine call to tho ministry
are harmonized, and it needi no prophet to predict .that thii lecture will
become a potent factor in. advancing
moral reforms,
Lovere of dramatic irt will find in
thit lecture pure and unalloyed pleasure, ai its irajptaftons; are free
from all contaminating associations and
allusioni. Here, on ita highest plane,
ind consecrated to the  mott exilted
Surpoie, il witnmed • ditplay.of the
