.'.'-'ABabe Flower.--Tho blossoming of a palm tree, Broumia Ariza\
constituted quite an interesting
event the other day nt the Imperial
l'ulace of Sclionln'unn, the spectacle
having been witnessed only once
before in Europe. The tree blossoms' only once' in fifty years, and
the bloom lists only forty-eight
. hours. The other time the flowers
were seen was in June, 1851, in the
Duke of Norfolk's conservatory at
Ohiswiok.
Axotiiee Civilized Ailment.—
A curious affection 'is paradoxical
doafness, Dr, Boucheron, in a note
to the Paris Academy of Sciences,
lately stated that the patient is deaf
for speech in the silence of a retired
room, yet hears the same in the
midst of noise, as in a moving carriage or railway train, or in the
street. The disorder)- which is grave,
progressive and somefiime!) hereditary, is caused by compression of
the labyrinth of tho ear.
•A SuatjEsHO!! to Builders,—A
variety of materials—suoh as sawdust, dry ashes, cork-clippings, etc.—
'■aim. keen used under, floors for
deadening noise. A lute French
suggestion is the use for this purpose
of -wood shavings whioh Have been
dipped in tfiick whitewash? It is'
claimed that, this substance hu the
ad vintages of being qiiife' incombustible, nn excellent non-condnctor of
sound, inexpensive, and) pt light
weight. When' derirable to disinfect the space between floor rind
ceiling, as in hospitals, chloride of
zinc may be used, to saturate the'
shavings or added to the whitewash.

states that an average temperature
of 58° below zero Fahrenheit ii recorded for the month of December
while minima of 76° below zero are
usual for the three winter months,
nnd have been observed in March.
In January, 188S, the extraordinary
temperature of 89° below sero was
notrd. Iii addition to its winter
attractions, the town enjoys frequent
inundations at other seasons.

Boston, Aug. 31.—General Ben
Butler addressed a large audience of
butiness men iu Tremout Temple on
the tariff nnd the fisheries questions.
He declared free trado to be impracti-
cable, aud deplored the democratic
policy ai being an abandonment of Ihe
system under which America has
ichieved marvel,. Ai to the fisheries
question :Gen. Butler agreed . that
existing retaliation law «as tup tiuue.
The president ought, however,, to have
acted on that ground. Having signed
it he stultified himself, by ignoring it.-
General Butler faVoreil a policy of geiia
ulne retaliatiatlon. "If Canada denies
our vessels their .'rights lot us
retaliate on British;, interests. If
pur own tithing vessels are kept out of
Canadian ports, let us keep Canadian
steamships off our pons. Let the
President enforce what puwerholias
before asking for new lenislation. He
will then show his statesmanship and
not mere politics." Tho General .woe
generously applauded.
UiroVKRISIIRD ASTSINNIA.
I.ONOON, Aug. 31.—MouBignor An-
tonelli, who lias resided for many years
aa the chief of the papal mission at the.
court of the King of .Shea, comprising
the three most southerly states of Aby-
itnit, has returned to Rome. In an
interview with a correspondent lit the
Italian capital, tho prelate gave an account of the condition of affairs in
Abyasinia, showing that that country
il impoverished and famine stricken to
an extent almost incredible. He
llrongly urges upon the Italian government the advisability of taking ud vantage of tho demoralization of Abyssinia by sending thither a new and formidable expedition and paints out innumerable ways ' in, which prompt
action in this respect would uot bo
only profitable to Italy but extremely
humane and otherwise beneficial to
civilization in its ultimate results. The
Government, it is well known, is anxious to-pursue the course nd vised by
Monaignor Antonelli, but is restrained,
by public opinion from a too precipitate occupation of King Johns dominions and it is yet unlikely that official
hesitancy may yet prove more disastrous io the consummation of Italy's
schemes than French opposition,

Saturday EviBlag, Sept. 1. ll**.
Our Viotoria coteiaporaries are at
present indulging in a discussion
over the "school question," or that
part of it relating to the amendment
passed last session which requires
the four cities of Viotoria, Westminster, Vancouver, and Nanaimo to
bear one-third of the teachers' salaries in addition to the usual school
tax. In his issue of the 30th August the Colonist attempts " calmly
and dispassionately1' to examine the
circumstances and principles involved in the measure. Our cotemporary states the case substantially
as follows: The government found
that the increasing cost of maintaining the present system of free
schools was more than the present
system of taxation would bear, and
therefore conoluded that the four
above namod rich cities should be
called upon to help the government
out of the difficulty. This wo believe to be the essence of the Colonist's plea for tho action of tho legislature in amending the school act
last session. Well, if this be true
political economy, then the so-called
"socialists" are not so far wrong, after all; for they hold the same plea
as the foundation of their social and
political system. Taxing Peter to
pay Paul, in ease of need, would be
all very well, if feter would pony
up voluntarily, and as an act of
charity; this would be real Christianlike. But the case is altered very
materially when Peter is told by the
sheriff to potlatch, or stand the consequences. Speaking ns free and
untrammelled, having neither love
nor hatred towards the present government, we must say that such n
mode of taxation, if carried to its
logical sequence, would be, as Mr.
MoKenzie would have said, " most
abominable;" it would be history repeating itself, when kings acknowledged no law other than their own
necessities, and levied imposts at
pleasure. Our humble opinion is
that such a mode of taxation is so
evidently discriminating, and uo
contrary to the spirit of modern
jurisprudence that it would bring
grief to any government attempting
to enforce it. To assume that the
three or four cities are better able
to bear an extra tax than rural
municipalities, is not correct. Time
was, perhaps, when this was the
case, but time has brought a ohnnge
in this respect Lands have changed
in many instances from poor pioneer
settlers to rich farmers, who have
been able to pay from $20 to $75
and $100 per acre for their large estates. These men are ns well able
to pay ah extra tax for school purposes as even the rich merchants in
the cities aforesaid, and better able
than a large majority of other classes
in these cities. The lax will not
work. The government will have
to devise some more just means of
maintaining the public schools.
The policy of decentralization nnd
county government, which has been
advocated by Tnr. Columbian, would
go far toward solving .in a legitimate
and proper way this vexed school
question.
Much has been spoken and written on the millenium. Christian
students very generally entertain
the idea of a coming millenium,
although they may and do differ
in their ideas as to the time of its be-
ginning.as to its nature,nnd as to the
means by which it is to be brought
about. Rev. Dr. Wild, of Toronto,
speaking on this subject recently,
said: "Some anticipate that Christ
will return, and by His own great,
yet natural power, will establish His
throne in Jerusalem, cut off the
wicked from the earth, and so in
augurote a millenial reign, My own
conviction is," says the Dr,, " that
the present gospel agencies will work
out in their final result to what we
call the millenium without any
special interference of a miraculous
kind from Heaven." One thing,
the speaker said, was very needful
to be remembered in studying this
subject, and that was that ihe millenial period would be a progressive
one. Not one out of every ten
writers could see this scientific
idea. The difference between the
state of the world on the last day
of the millenium and the first day
would bo perhaps as great as between the present day and the first
day of the millenium, Some of the
scriptures referred to one period of
this age, and some to another. For
instance, in the first period births
and deaths wonld be as they now
are, but in the last period the deaths
would be very few and births would
have censed altogether. At the
end of the millenial period there
would be no children on the earth,
and many then living would be
hundred, of years old. A man
would be able to uy: "Thii tree
ia 800 yean old, and I am here
ita cotemporary." Many of
the present customs and defects
would characterize the first period
and not the last. The millenium
would open up with thousands of
soldiers, thousands of ministers and
thousands of policemen, but ns the
ages advanced, these would gradually disappear, their work having been
accomplished, and would finally
cease to exist altogether. Religion
would be relegated back to the individual and. to th. family,. for then
all would know the Lord. Medical
science would advance in the several
departments,   conquering   disenso,
and destroying the very   source   of
the  same,  leaving  men freer und
healthier as each period passed by,
until the time would como as spoken
of in his text, Isaiah Jxv.   20-22,
and declared particularly iu the last
two versos.   Ihe time of the beginning of tho millenium, the speaker
said, was very hard to state precisely, but he believed it would begin
about the year 1935, whioh   was a
very different thing altogether from
the ending of the world.   It would
come, he believed, as noiselessly and
as undefinedly as the morning dawns
upon the earth.   Although its first
appearance might  be  hardly   distinguishable, it would not be  long
before  nil  the world would know
that this was the blessed  age  fore-
to*d.   The preacher wns astonished
that people could entertuin the idea
of Christ's coming to establish the
millenium in the present state of the
world.   That would simply   be  to
say that the gospel instituted 1800
years ago had proved a failure.   It
would be a reflection upon Providence.   Then again the Jews certainly must be restored  before  the
millenium could come, and the new
temple planned and laid out in the
last eight chapters of Ezekiel would
be   built  ere   the millenium could
dawn upon the earth.   It would be
on the other side, too, of wars and
rumors of wars, and the gospel will
have been universally preached; not
that all would be converted,  but
there would not be whole tribes, or
whole races, or whole  nations  in
darkness and in ignorance  of  the
law and of the gospel, as   was  the
case at present.    Referring  to the
age of the earth, Dr. Wild said that
a scientific friend of his had been offended because he maintained  that
the Adamic earth   was   not  above
6,000 years  old.   "He  thought I
displayed   great  weakness  in the
statement," said the Dr.   "I wrote,
asking him to send me half a dozen
statements from different authors as
to how long the earth had  been  in
existence.   He wrote in reply, stating that I had set him a task that
revealed his weakness, that he found
the  lowest  estimate about 20,000
years, and the highest a little  over
2,000,000.   If I could  not  guess
nearer than that I would stop calling
myself a scientist  or theologian, I
replied, giving him this simple rule:
Wc  have  hud thirty-three generations from Adam till  now.   You
take five for a family increase, and
double those up for these thousands
of  years,   and  how  many people
would there be living in the   world
now, allowing the same laws to  be
operative in the past that are active
nt present!   H. was amaced at the
calculation, so much so, he tells me,
that he gave his calculations  to
professor at a London university to
see if he was correct, and; tbe professor stated that he was quite correct,  but he got more people than
the  world   would  hold.   Now, in
6,000 years, by any   common  rule,
there will be more people than  are
existing; and supposing you extend
your calculation  back    2,000,000
years, how many would you have I
It is beyond comprehension.   There
is  nothing  more ridiculous, or so
much  at  variance   with  common
sense, than for man  to  reject   the
Bible estimate of man's age in  the
earth.   We cannot have lived  by
common arithmetic  on  this earth
over 4,000 years continuously, while
6,000 years makes it necessary for
us to produce some catastrophe (like
the deluge) to sweep away the  millions off the earth,"   On tile  same
system of calculation the speaker concluded that the world could not conveniently last much longer than another thousand years, and predicted
that after 6,000 years of  toil  and
labor a Sabbath of 1000 years would
ensue, and after that—the end.
Mr. Sheehan, of Oscoda, Mich., writes,
"X have used Dr. Thomu' Electric OU en
for different diseases, and found It to be
just as you recommended.   It has done
Citlce to me every time, and It li the
st Oilforliorsesleverused." Observe
that the name "Dr. Thomas' Eeleotric

W. Lewi. Fraalir, manager of th. art

recently on "Nei rlyTwo Hundred Year!
of Book Illnstra' ing tn America."
In 16N, he laid appeared the first sheet

pige a portrait of Queen Anne.

little matter ifor the inspiration of an
artiit.
American books were illustrated by relief platea front 1703 throughout the Provincial period! and from copper plates
from a very 'early time. These platea
avere preauuufbly engraved in America..
Iu 1775 there al ere In America three relief
nnd.two co)iper-plate engravers, who
might be claused as professionals. Ode
of these wai a negro alavo owned by
Thomas Flee I, a Boston printer.
The work 'of the ante-Kevolutlonary
engravers w|a not muoh to be commended. Alter 'ahe war ttllthecnd of the
c:ntury, prlj ting offlces'ivere multiplied,
nud lmmee'ie numbers of books were
produced, varying from children's books
nn Inch squiiro to ponderoui folios. From
tho hegtnnliig of the present century, to
1830 coppet-r,iatai .ngrevliig waa, very
popular ton everything, fnuua history of
Cock Roblii to a folio Bible.	
However; wood engraving had begun
to grow In favor, and in 1880 tho National
Academy .1 f Design established a course
of leoturc.'i on that art. Then a mushy
literature, with mushy Illustrations
sprnug iu jo existence, and tbe numerous
annual! formed tbo staple of popular

Conference Between the Board! of Trade
and Mr. Wm. flmith, Deputy Minister of Marine.
In accordance with previous arrangements the members of the council of
the Westminster board of trade had
an interview with tlie deputy minister
of marine in the board rooms yesterday afternoon. Besides members of
the council and the deputy minister
there wero present Senator Mclnnes,
D. Chisholm, M.P., Capt. Boh*', M.K

Robinson, A. til. Hill, 0. ft, f. O.
Gamble, O.K., und a Urge number of
prominent inonibi-ra of tho board of
trade, and some other prominent citizens.
The president occupied the clmir,
and after mentioning the chief object
of the conference, the secretary was
! called upon to read a statement setting
forth the difficulties encountered by
the board in its efforts to procure
authentic reports respecting the slate
of river navigation and the disadvantages under which the river and ita in-
Yesterday afternoon    Mr.    James

Cruelly to Animals. ■ ':[
Eyoi-y day ulmoat affords proof .of
.the need in this city of a sojiely for tho
prevention of cruelty to animals. The-
other day several sheep, the four legs
of each were tied together, were lying
in tho sun in Johnson street, and the
horn of one of the poor creatures hud
been torn off, leaving the bleeding
stump exposed. Anyone who by accident has had :t linger nail wrenched off
can form a partial idea of the agony an
animal must Buffer when an entire horn
is torn out bodily. In any other city
such wanton cruelty would meet with
well deserved punishment.—'GoVttihi,
TbeAililrilcPavk.
Some w.eeks ago The Columbian referred lo.the. necessity of. an athletic
park and urged the citizens to lose no
timo in taking action in the matter.
We are glad to know our remarks on
the aubject were appreciated and that
immediate steps will bo taken to bring
the project into effect. Subscriptions
to tlio amount of $250 have already
been subscribed by citizens  and  this
inrj of this sta ement occupied about
an hour, but it was listened to with
patient attention by the deputy minister. It was pointed out that for
many months fruitless efforts had been
made by the board, and by tho managers of the Royal City Planing Mills
to induce ships to come up the river
for lumber. There was no reliable
official chart in existence showing the
course of the channel over the sand
heads and the actual depth of water,
and both Capt. Lewis and the marine
department at Ottawa had persistently
declined to furnish any reliable statement on this point. Capt. Jjewis
stated in his official report to (he department that there waa only 8 feet of
water on the bar at low water springs,
and he further stated to the president
that the depth was only 7 feet. After
much delay the board succeeded in
getting, accurate soundings, taken by
Mr. Hill, C. E., and Capt. Robinson,
in conjunction with Capt. Lewis. Mr.
Hill reported 11$ feet at low water
springs, but Capt. Lewis still maintained that it was necessary to make allowances that would reduce the actual
depth to at least 9 feet. The board
expressed the opinion that Capt. Lewis
was proceeding upon a wrong and misleading calculation, inasmuch as he
made no allowance for the increased
height uf water produced at the bar by
the river current, and this opinion was
borne out by Mr. Hill's report It
appears also that Capt Lewis did not
report precisely what ho believed to be
the actual depth of water, but some*
thing less, excusing himself on the
plea that it was better to be under
than over the mark! The board claim
ed that it wss his duty to report exactly the depth of water, and leave it to
amount will bo increased to $1000 by
tbe end of next week. The city coun- j navigators to mako whatever dedue-
cil will be petitioned on Monday night' riom they might think fit for their own
to assist tha scheme, and will, without  safety.   In spite of the obstacles men-
doubt, vote a generous amount. If tbe
proposed plan is carried into effect
Westminster will have the finest athletic grounds, in the province.
»lemMiiuat Wlilsiles.
Tbe practice of blowing whistles
previous to departure of steamboats
has been abandoned at Victoria, and the
inhabitants now sleep in peace. The
same plan might be adopted in Westminster, and would meet with the heartfelt appreciation of the entire community. The whistle at present seems
to be the main part- of the steamer.
Every time a rope is moved the melodious whistle sends forth a blast loud
enough to awaken the dead, and it
would be no surprise if the residents
of the various cemeteries should aome
day mistake the sounds for the promised blast of Gabriel's trumpet and rise
en maw from their graves. Day and
night the, eity is disturbed by these
awful whistles* and some steps should
be taken to abate the nuisance.
Broke ncr Arm.
A few days;ago Miss Peters, the
well-known pianist, had the misfortune
to break her arm near the elbow, and
Bhe is thus prevented from following
her profession of teaching music. As
sho has ever been most kind iu assisting at concerts, etc., a number of the
musical people of this city havo decided to give a concert in the Wilson
Hall on Wednesday evening next for
her benefit. All the loading musicians, oicM of tho city have offered
their servicofl and a splendid programme will be presented. It is hoped
that tho public-will patronize this con*
pert hugely, as since her arrival in this
city Mias Petera has given her services
gratuitously on many occasions and
has done much to raise the standard of
musical art iti this city.—Vamotmr

CWIdfM Cry for.Pftchw,,C«storla
Contrary to all expectations tho
ilovll returned to Chinatown luet night
and took the inhabitiinti by surprise,
the visit not being looked for. Although eomowluit unprepared it did
not tnko the celestials long to get in
fighting trim, and soon torn tomi,
drums, cymbals etc:,, were playing
against the attach of his royal highness. Reinforcements wore telegraphed for to Vancouver nnd a dotaohmont
arrived on tlie ovoning train. One of
the Vancouvoiites wis detailed to beat
the big drum and so earnestly did he
apply himself to the task thit tho instrument wai almost demolished before the devil was beaten off. Imtead
of applauding tho heroic effort! of thii
individual, the Chinaman who owned
the drum had1 him arretted and layi
the dnmngei nt $100. Tho oaso waa
remanded till Monday,
Wm, Pierce was lined $5 nt tho police court yeiterdiy morning and
promised to reform. With thii laudable
intention he purchased a new mit of
clothes from Mr. MoDonough, for
whioh he paid $14. Feeling, that a
email drop of muskeg dew would
brighten him up a bit and tet offline
new clotheato liotier advantage, Pierce
indulged in a few drinks and wat Dually
taken to the police station drunk and
incapable. Before being arretted be
tried fo tell the new olothot for 75
centi, but could not find a purchaser.
Fined fJB.
tioned, three ships had been induced
to come to this city for lumber, and
had gone iu and out without any inconvenience, but still no effort hid
been mado by tho department tu meet
what, the board considered iti very
moderate .nd reasonable demands.
The three thing! aiked for by tho
board wore: (1) A chart thowing the
potition and actual depth of water on
the land heads, issued under official
authority, ao that it would be accepted
at reliable by shippers and underwriters; (2) the appointment of aome person resident on tho river whose duty it
would" bo to 'seo that the buoyt were
kept in proper potition and that ill
reasonable aide ihould be given to
river navigation; (3) that tho mag-boat
be plated with iron and employed to
break up tho ice and keep an open
channel during the few daya when the
navigation wai liable tn obstruction
from that cause. ,    .
The department teemed to imagine
that th. admiralty charts, iuued many
yean ago, ought to be.sufficient for
the navigation of the sand heads; but
it was pointed out that thete charts
were utterly useless for this purpoie,
aa the principal channel laid down on
them had long ago been abandoned.
The statement presented'to tho deputy
minister closed with the following language: "At a matter of fact the channel laid down on tho admiralty map it
the very channel whioh the Canadian
government hat been for the put two
yean filling up with mattresses nnd
rocki, and for tho absolute extinction
of whioh an appropriation of 920,000
wii made thia year. But although
that channel bat not been used
at all by ships for three years,
and ia being filled up and obliterated,
by tho federal government, thero ia no
official advice of the fact'. Tho government refuses to make a new chart,
or to certify tn tlie actual depth of
water, and throws in tho face nf. the
hoard an old . admiralty chart which,
if followed, would certainly lead tho
mariner to ahipwreck; tho nitent of tho
marine department in I his province not
only roporta that tfiore ii no need for
an official chart, but actually persists
in misrepresenting Ihe channel by reporting fen water than actually exist!
by nearly four feet; aud the board of
trade has been forced to apend monthi
of anxious labor and hundred! of dollar! in an almoat hopeless effort to
counteract the dnmoging effects of th.
inaction of the. government  and the
ferversenesi of some of itt officials.
n the moantime the interest! nf thii
district are suffering,'nnd tho Board
feelt thit the Fraser River doei not
receive that consideration t.i which it
fairly entitled,"
After the reading of the statement,.
a goneral conversation took placo, thu
citizens preiont pointing out where the
present charts were at fault and insist-
ing upon some action on the part of
government. Mr. Smith admitted tho
reatonableneu of the potition taken by
the board, and promised that tho matter! referred to would receivo attention, If thia meam that the requoats
of the board and tho oltiiena are to be
complied with, without delay, belli the
board and th. citizen! Will bu well sat-
itfiod for tbe protent; but if it meant
nothing more thin a corteoui diimisinl
of the tubjeot, the board and the citi-
zoni are fully determined to make
themiclvei heard until the grievances
complained of have bean adjusted.
