American girl! who desire to

Lothrop'a daughter, who married
a Russian baron a few days ago,
was courted in French, aa ahe could
not speak Russian and her lover was
unskilled in English. Miss Virginia Knox, of Pittaburg, Fa., who
married Count di Montercole, of
Italy, on Thunday, had a like experience. She was unable to speak
Italian and the Count couldn't count
on his English. French thui became the language of lait resort.

The big Joggins' raft (the first
and unsuccessful one) which was
lost at sea last December, and
whose whereabouts since has been a
source of anxiety to many watchful
skippers, has left its traces behind
it, according to a Philadelphia
paper, it is stated that residents
of the Azores and Madeira islands
report their shores lined with the
trunks of huge trees, believed to be
part of the great raftiujat Bi*3>£seo]
to be on its way to Gibraltar or
some other point of interest in. that
locality. The skipper of a barque
recently returned from a voyage
over the Atlantio further asserts
that he waa five days amongst these
logs, an indication either that the
skipper's idem are large and generous or that the raft still retains
respectable proportions despite tlie
repeated onslaughts of wind and
There waa reported from Spring-
hill, N. S., not long ago a fatality
around which clung a good deal of
mystery. Joseph Acklei was found
dead in a ditch, and from marks
upon hia head it looked as though a
murder had been committed. An
enquiry was held, but no elucidation
of the tragedy resulted, although
the local papers appear to resent
the imputation of niurder in the
case, The verdict of the jury being
a neat thing in it* way, and quite
in keeping with the inexplicable
features of the occurrence, we give
it, Acklos, from this declaration,
came to his death "from some influence brought to bear upon the brain
and spinal ohord, the exact nature
of which wa* not definitely determined, to far a* thii evidence obtained bears on the ease." It. is
something new to call a blow from
a weapon an "influence."
A New York despatch in a recent number of the Philadelphia
Timet, alluding to Cleveland's retaliation message, throws some now
nnd rather startling light upon the
subject, as follows:—The president
has not alept upon thia important
matter. What he uttered in his
famous md positive message upon
the subject he meant. Those who
thought his words at the time were
idle emanations of the moment do
not know the man. His convictions upon any subject are not only
intense but tonaoious. This was
abundantly proven by his giving his
party new life and new policy, while
practically endangering hii ensured
reelection. When he pronounced
hii great dictum upon tariff reform
he was none the less serioui, although he has not received the
oredit for it. Whim he deolarod
that Canada must be made to sudor
for any injuries done to American
commerce or to American fishermen
be meant what he said. Hut the
Republican senate in its partisanship and the Republican lenders,
blinded by bigotry, saw in Mr.
Cleveland's retaliation message
nothing but a bid for rotes, and
thought the best way to dispose of it
was to ignore it. They reckoned
without their host. They knew not
thnt with him conviction is a command, but they will find it out
should the joint congresslonnl com
mittee wait upon him before November 6.

mons-and^orthe provincial   legislature.   AtpresentBritish Oolumbia
hasaix rewuaentatives for the  Dominion,  divided   equally   between
mainland and island.   Toth. legis-
lative assembly of the  province 27
members are returned, 14 from  the
mainland and 13 from  the island.
In the commons Victoria city  and
diitrict   has two representatives;
Westminster oity end district,  including the new-born but important
and progressive city of Vancouver,
ha* but one.   This adjustment,   obviously unequal now, promises to be
a good deal more so before  another
Dominion general election   take*
place, and before that timo will re-
quire to be placed upon a  different
basis   But, for a striking example
of* really "great preponderance,"
the representation of Viotoria city
and district in the local legislature,
ai compared with that of Westminster city and district in  the ume
body,  demandi particular  notice.
Viotoria city, with a white population of barely 10,000—if it hai that
—is allowed four representatives in
the local house.    Westminster city,
with a white population  of  5,000,
has but one representative, and Vancouver, with a white population  of
about 9,000, has no representative
at all in the provincial legislature.
Here's  a  pretty how-de-do.   And
the Colonist talking about a "great
preponderance!1'   verily there is a
great preponderance;  but it's the
other way round.   Then,  Victoria
diitrict,   including  Esquimalt, has
four  representatives,   while Westminster district, with  considerably
moro population,  has  but three.
The glaring instances we have cited
will give some idea of the unsuit-
ableneu and inequality of the present distribution of representation in
thi* province.   Of coune,  a good
deal of this  inequality  has  arisen
from the rapid development of this
part of the mainland since the last
adjustment.   The remedy is obvious
—» redistribution of representation
on aome fair  basis  of  population,
for the cities and populated districts
of the province.   For sparsely, settled  and outlying districts other
consideration! must be allowed due
weight   We believe that wme  of
thine ire over-represented  st pres
ent, ud that the number of representatives for the province is more
than it should be.   We  shall  not,
however, enlarge upon this phase of
the subject just now.   One thing is
certain, thnt a thorough revision and
redistribution of representation for
the whole province muit be  undertaken and carried out before the dissolution of the present provincial
parliament, and as only  two more
sauion* remain to that body, there
muit be unap-a'ahranary wrestling
next seuioo *rtth what is sure to
prove u knotty.atnd discord-breeding
proPulerQ—allxiojigtJ, if carried out in
aipiritofitrictjualice, there is no
minor, for any serious difficulty  or
trouble,. Viotoria, though, as standing for Vancouver Island, must oease
i to oonaider itself os a sort of  demi-
provinee—havingseparate und   pe-
on'titr privileges—and must learn to
regard Vancouver Island as  a section or district of British Columbia
—.entitled only to suoh rights as its
comparative proportion, in every re-
apect, to the  whole  province de-
mandi.    In this way, and  in  this
way alone, can true union and amicable    relations   subsist   between
mainland and island, and equal jus
tice  be .done  to every part of tbe
province.
_____________t__m
Ai our climate ia  subject   to
ohange* at certain  seasons of the
year, within, however, very temperate limits, the following from  the
SritmUfie American will be of inter
Mt to houwwivei .especially:   It  ia
stated that tbe  .ndden  change  of
ttuswi.lhii. recently Irom cold  to
w*am and damp, observe! the Phil-
orMphi- Times,  ha*  caused  thou-
sandi of dollars of damage  to  wall
paper and other articles in houses.
Of coune it has, and it ia so simply
because many people do not study
the plainest common sense principle* in airing their  houses.   One
evening lately people went  to  bed
with * hunt for extra blankets  be-
caus. ot tha sudden and severe chill
in On atmosphere.   When   they
rose in the morning their bedrooms,
parlors, dining rooms, etc., were yet
entity from the cold of the previoui
d»y, while the outside  atmosphere
rud suddenly become not only warm,
but hot and oppressive with damp-
nets.    Inconaiderate people opened
their window* and doors because the
wether wa* warm, forgetting that
tb*i*xoaisive moiature in the attno-
ifahero would rush in with the warm
_kr__4'tmittlj-efO_i%_mlton the'
cM Will*, furniture, etc., Add pene-
tmte mtll papers, ourtains, bedding,
and everything within   reach  that
ul«WBteel. aurface colder than the
itt*^«med it into the house.
Of oooise the moiature loosened and
_._uyr.li-*d jtftr, made ourtaini  a*
UqfMttmAWiwtoM-****
and musty, and generally spoiled
everything that water couhl spoil;
but all could have been avoided by
following the plain, common sense
rule of not opening houses suddenly
to suddenly changed atmosphere,
carrying nn excessive quantity of
moisture. A pitcher tilled with
cold water and placed in a room in
summer will "sweat"—at least that
is what it is commonly called. The
pitcher does not sweat, because it is
not porous and cannot sweat; but
the cold water inside of it chilis the
outer surface, nnd, ns soon ns tho
outer surface of the pitehor Incomes
cooler than the atmosphere in the
room, the moisture of the air will
be precipitated upon tbe pitcher in
drops. This simple illustration
should teach all housewives to avoid
suddenly opening rooms in a bouse
when the outside atmosphere is
warmer than the temperature of the
rooms and full of moisture, tn all
such cases the wall paper, furniture,
etc., being cooler than tho outside
air, will speedily have the moisture
of the atmosphere precipitated upon
them, and it will require days to restore tho house to the dry condition
that is essential to health. There
are no arbitrary freaks in the laws
which govern the atmosphere surrounding us, and thero is nothing
abstruse in mastering them. Warm,
damp air will ever precipitate its
moisture in houses or elsewhere
whenever it cornea in contact with
anything chilled by a cooler atmosphere, and that is the whole story.
The only thing to lie added is that,
when people have thus ignorantly or
negligently allowed their houses to
become damp, thoy should light fires
and dry them as promply as possible.

"Hi**' trtto A bent anil trembling old
man, a »«i**-haired and broken old
woman, «nd »a thoy eat beside tbe
coffin the Old man sdld:
"He was about ton years old.
We found him in a basket on our doorstop one night in the long ago.
Wo were old people then, but wile
she bogged that we should tako the
littlo atranaw la and can for
him." :-.
" Beeanae -tttv own children were
sleeping under tho sod," she explained,
aa ilia wiped the tears away.
"So wa made him our ohflil," rimmed .the old man, " and in a little
timo we came to love him as if he had
been horn tb us. Be wis a itrangc
boy—quiot, gentlo, thoughtful, nor-
rowful. There seemed to bo a burden
of grief weighing liim down. Ho eume
to know in time, not from nn, but from
others—that ho was no kin to ns, nnd
it troubled him uiucli. Not that he
did not love us, but Unit wo were
old and poor, and ho f.-lt himself
a burden upon us. Lust night a
creditor came and abused un boean«o
we could not pay ndiplit. Li I Ho Phil
had crept off to bed, but he must have
been awake yet ami heard every word.
The man was angry because we could
not pay, and ho slid -aorouHiiujr. about
picking
clothe.   If it was bis case, ho said, he'd
our picking up paupers to feed, and
ship the boy off to the County
House."   ■*
" I went to say good-night to him,"
whispered tho woman, " but lie .had
his face to the wall and seemed to be
asleep. Wo hoped' ho had not
heard the harsh words, for we knew
how they would wound him. Why,
sir, if worst came to worst, I'd have
gone hungry to .give that boy. food.
Ho waa the hit of sunshine in onr
lives."
■ " In tho morning when I got up,"
said the father, " I called to Phil,
bet ho did not answer. I entered
the. room to find that he had put a
rope ovor ono ot the clothes-hooks
. and atrangled himself—committed
suicide. He must linve got up Boon
after he went to bed, for hia body was
cold and stiff."
I " And— and he left tliis on the
stand," lobbed the woman as she held
out a note.
. It was written on the leaf of
an old memorandum book, and
the writing was in pencil. It read:
i " I no you wouldn't send me to the
county house, but you are poore and in
debt I'd go away if I could, but I
doan't no where to go. Doan't feel
bad. If God let. me into Heven, I'll

From Mr. H. .T. Keary, of Lillooet,
who is in the city on a ihort visit, we
obtain the following interesting note!
about mining and other matter! in
Lillooet and vicinity. Mr. H. O. Prober!, a mining expert, repnunting the
Rothsohildi, Baring Brothen, and
other English capitalists, and superintendent of rich minei In Nevada on behalf of English capital, inspected the
Bonanza, near Lillooet, a few weeki
ago, taking away leveral specimens of
quartz. The omiora of tho Bonanza
have called for tendon to run a tunnel
100 feet into the mountain, following
the ledge. The work, it ia expected,
will bo commenced almost immediately, and will be completed early thia
winter. The tunnel may be extended
more tlian 100 feet, and ihould tut
the ledge pretty thoroughly. Rich
ditcoveriet may be looked for, u tho
Bonanza ia considered a promising
gold-bearing quirlz ledge;
Mr. J. M. Jensen, repreienting
Victoria capitalists, discovered recently, it the head of Andenon lake, about
milea from Lillooet, a ledge of
na ore, assaying *130 of silver to
the ton. This is a valuable discovery,
and will probably be worked  before
A BOLD SCHEME,
Fader Bros., of Vancouver, sawmill
ownen and operate™, Intend, if it ii
ascertained to be practicable, logo into
a aomewhat daring phue of the lumbering buiineii. Thii ii none other
than a acheme to bring white pine Ion
from Bridge river, about 30 milei above
Lillooet, u the crow flies. Bridge
river is a tributary of the Fraier, and
rum through a district prolific in the
somewhat icarce but incomparable
white pine. Fader Broa. propoie to
fell the treei and ihoot tho log! down
tho rapidi of Bridge river and
through the boiling canyons of
the Fraser m fir u Hope, where a
boom would be fixed, and the log!
rafted from that point down
the river to the market!. They
alio propoie to follow the logt up in
canoei and help them out of oddiea
and over obstructions. The experiment will prove an intereiting one at
any rate, and ahould they lucceed, the
retulta will be important.
rOLIIICAL NOTES.
Mr. F. S. Barnard, a candidate for
the commont, to fill the vacancy created by Mr. Reid'a appointment to the
senate, wu at Lillooet about the 1st
inst, making himself "solid" with the
voten (a process, by the way, whioh
often follo.a the law nf contrariei
lotions in the present
mil implies the dispensing of unlimited
"liquid!.")
Mr. R. McLccsc, another candidate
fur the samo position, was down from
Soda Creek, about a week afterwards,
'ling up hia opponent*! itakei and

From Ihe Yak...
Mr. Jamei McCauley, who lately
arrived from the Yukon country, wintered ^with , Mr., Wm. Ogilvie, of the
geological lurvey at Forty-Mile Creek
on that river. He uyi that he heard
from a Ohurch of England clergyman
and hii wife, who had arrived at the
Yukon, that Mr. Ogilvie had aucceeded
in safely reaching the Peel river about
the 16th or 17th of July, with all well.
Mr. McCauley was for nearly four
yean in the Yukon country, mining,
and describe! it it the hardeit country
ever visited by. white man. The
placer mining would pay pretty woll if
worked by machinery. The quarts
promiau fair, but the difficulty wculd
be that machinery could not be eanly
worked during the winter. The coldest
lut winter wai 60 deg. below zero,
whioh wu comidered very moderate
woather. Mr. MoCauley haa ordered
machinery through the Alaska Commercial Co. and they will deliver it up
the Stewart River 1900 milei from St.
Michael.. The river breaki up about
the middle of May and cloua up in
October. The summer seuon ii picas-
ant with very little vegetation growing. Game ia rather icarce. Th.
King ulmon in the Yukon ii the largeit and Guest in the world. The Yukon
river ii a fine large itream and navigable for over two thousand milei md in
lome placei from ten to twelve milei
wide. Mr. McCauley returna in Ihe
■pring via Chilcot.—Times.
