NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The prohibitionists of famous
Halton are determined to nuke
thoir influence felt at an election
which is to be held in that county
shortly. Both candidates are to lie
asked to accept tho alliance platform, and the prohibs. will work for
the mnn who says yes, or, if both
decline, will bring out a candidate of
their own.
The liberal .way in whioh permits
for the sale of intoxicants are
granted to favored ones in the Northwest territories, is evoking sharp
censure of the government, and it is
difficult to see how their aotion can
be defended. Aside altogether from
ther temperance aspect of the question, the favoritism shown should be
condemned.
Another significant paragraph is
added to the history of Sam Jones,
the revivalist. Solid, high-toned
journals like the Christian-at-Work
am publishing his sermons. In the
outset of liis career, Jones faced
poverty of the old-fashioned starvation sort, rather than forsake what
he held to be duty, and you don't
risk inuoh by betting on a man who
does. that.  ■
The ratepayers of Viotoria have
assented to three of eight bylaws submitted to them. These three are
for distinctly useful expenditures,
while of the live rejected, some at
least were measures of very doubtful utility. This would appear
to prove that the good folks of capital have gone to work carefully
and judiciously in the matter of
casting tlieir votes; whioh is a
very, good example, and one well
worthy of being followed,
"■-7 5p ^.DJyv'S DESPATCHES,
A Pittsburg physician hu jnst
applied for a patent on a process to
preserve human bodies by compression of a curious combination of
steel presses and hot rollers. Ho
excludes all moisture, and reduces .1
full-grown body to a small size—
12x15 inches—rendering it as solid
and imperishable as marble, Bodies
thus preserved are free from earthy
contamination and decay, and may
be made to assume ornamental
shapes and retained for souvenirs.
It is said the experimenter hu on
his parlor center-table the body of a
child pressed in the form of a cross.
It is white and odorless as wild
flowers, and might readily be mistaken for Carrara marble by the uninitiated.
One of the Shetland Islands is to
be sold shortly—Foulaj second in
size of the group, and the one situated farthest west and whioh is supposed by some to have been tne
Ultima Thule of the Romans. The
island is three miles long and two
broad, and is famous foil its wild
and rocky coasts. The wild fowl
which resort to the place in great
numbers may make it attractive to
the wealthy sportsman with plenty
of spending money, otherwise the
sale of Ihe island will likely be a
dillicult operation. One of the
charms put forward on behalf of
Foulo is its fifteen miles distance
from 11 telegraph, so that the harassed man of affiiirs can find a
haven of rest.
There may be a moral for New
Westminster in tho paragraph
following, which wo dip from the
Empire,—The people of Ottawa
would like to have the old railway
station in the east end of the city
reopened. The concentration of
traflirr at the West End depot is
claimed to have had an injurious
eli'ect upon property' nnd business
in the locality abandoned by tlie
railway. The agitation has resulted
in one discovery which, if not of
much practical use iii the present
disoussion, at least points a moral.
The old bylaws, granting bonuses to
the railway in question, now called
the St. Lawrence and Ottawa nnd
forming part of the Canadian Pacific
system, but formerly bearing a different name, did not stipulate exactly
whine tlm terminus was to lie, in
some cases tho documents omitting
to state that the line was to run
into tho city at all. The incident
will serve to impress upon municipalities the necessity of having all
thoir agreements with railway or
otlier corporations drawn up clearly
nnrl all requisite provisions carefully
included so as to provied for future
I'lrntillirillleilS.

LAST NIGHI-FdESPATUHES.
TBE FUHNEII. COMMISSION.
London, Aug. 1.—The dobate on
tbe Parnell commission bill wus resumed in tbe house uf commons this
evening. Mr. Balfour said that Mr.
Matthews' speech of lost night contained what the government had stated all
along. Sir Lyon Playfair contended
that Mr. Matthews enormously extended the scope of the bill. Mr.
Matthews stated that the inquiry was
into the organization which induced
crime, whereas the liberals had been
led to believe that the bill was for the
purpose of enabling certain members
to clear their characters, Mr. Brad-
laugh declared that Mr. Matthews had
made out an absolutely new case. Mr.
Chamberlain reiterated that he wonld
have been glad if the range of the proposed enquiry bad been limited, bat
he had never suggested a limit regarding the prisons. Mr. Gladstone said
that the government's agreement bad
been entirely and absolutely changed.
Mr. Balfour said that Mr. Gladstone,
on the eve of the enquiry, had pronounced the letters forgeries. Mr.
Gladstone: "I said that I was justified
in concluding that there was a motive
for the remarkable way in which the
letters were thrown into tho shade."
Mr. Balfour said Mr. Gladstone's remarks were most improper..' Mr. Reid
offered an amendment that the commission inquire into the charges ahd allegations against members of tho house.
Mr. Smith's friend, Mr. Walter, had
not wished any other than members
included until he visited Mr. Smith,
when he saw that the only chance of
escaping disgrace and averting tbe ruin
of .the Times was to get a roying inquiry
regarding persons over whom members
hsd ho control.
TRAIN WKECKED.
AutrquiaqDE, Aug. 2.—A westbound freight train on Ihe, Atlantic &
Pacific road was wrecked near Holbrook last night and the enaiuoiu,
-Uted.r 	
ICIIBSK MILL BUKNED.
Ottawa, Aug. 2.—E. B. Eddy's
lumber mill at Birchton was burned
lut night, together with Hie entire
season's cut, valued at (420,000. A
number of workmen's houses and tool
houses were lost. The total loss
amounts to |500,000, on which the insurance is (1,00,000.
EVICTED TENANTS SENTENCED.
. Dublin, Aug. 2.—The tenants and
others arrested for resisting the bailiffs
in the Vandaleur ejectments have been
sentenced to imprisonment for terms
varying from one to six months, at
hard labor.
CHINA AND JAPAN ADVICES. '
San Francisoo, Aug, 2.—The str.
Arabic arrived from China and Japan
last night after a quick passage of 13
days aud 23 houn. She had two cases
of small-pox ou board, and will hare
to remain iu quarantine 15 days. Following advioss ore at hand.:' Tha.
young emperor's marriage will .take
place next February, lu Hongkong
137 persons died of cholera in the week
ending June 23rd. Five men were
suffocated and eight narrowly escaped
death by fire on the steamer Clan Macintosh, whicli arrived at Hongkong
July 4th. In a fire in Hongkong on
July Ilth a Chinese woman and two
ohildren, abandoned by their relatives,
perished in the flames. Meagre details of the volcanio eruption of Mount
Iwahaati, in Japan, are received. The
volcano became activo Sunday morning July 16th, and in a short time fill
houses at its bare were destroyed.
About 400 persons and thirty houses
in a village called Bira were buried undor the sand and ashes throtvu out of
the volcano. Among those buried
were some lifteeu visitors at a hot
spring in the neighborhood. Advices
from Corea state that tho recent excitement in Saoul "luis.-il by a minor
that Ctirt'iin children were being kidnapped and sold In American missionaries, who boiled them fur medicines,
which led to thu decapitation of nine
officials, hnrt Fortunately resulted in no
harm to the ftiioignnrs, and in no general ill will mi the part of the luurns
against the foroiuners. The Corcans
are greatly excited over the ln,s of
their children and it is believed the
foreigners were responsible for their
disappearance. On soveral occasions
Cnreana walking with thoir own child-
ren on the streets were accused of try-
inn to got away with stolen children
and were brutally murdered in broad

In this age of tyafpci. it would
seem ai if thejistmotphf* wan
charged with thi gems of- speculation: even the formerly very exclusive Japanese have caught the craze
for being in the fashion religiously.
A number of thoir learned men nre
advocating the expediency of adopting Christianity merely for its
secondary advantages. Thoy are
shrewd enough to observe thnt Christian nations aro the leaders in all
that even the world counts greatness.
Although they ore yet strangers to
the author of Christianity thoy seem
to be unconsciously attracted to tho
cross by its outward effects. Ohina
and all tho othor kindrod peoples in
that seotion of the globe will surely
follow the example, and evon as
nominal Christians they will be in
almost as favorablo a condition to
become real Christians as the great
bulk of so-oalled Christendom. Man
never before was so intent on conquering physical and moral difficulties. The natural forces in connection with our little planet ere being
speedily utilized. The applications
of steam have done wonders, electricity will do more, and other forces
will be harnessed for still greater
service, until shortly the whole human family of every olime and color
will meet fid mix and exchange
ideas. And after that—mil the deluge! "Wo shnll see. Everything
moves with almost inconceivable rapidity in this age, and great things
are on the verge of disclosure.
Long-headed   statesmen  on  the
other side of the boundary have for
some time recognized the fact  that
the United States was • receiving a
larger influx of a heterogeneous class
of European immigration  than  it
would well digest  and   assimilate.
It was seen also that the too favorable naturalisation' laws, whereby
aliens were received into full citizenship after a few months' residence,
could have to be  modified,   unless
the  real,    native-born   Americans
were content to have the balance of
power transferred from their hands
te the foreign element.   As nn outcome of the sentiment on this'question, a bill was introduced  in  the
senate recently,   whioh   proposes,
among other things,   that aliens
shall, before becoming citizens, take
on some of the   essentials  of  good
citizenship,  and,   before  becoming
voters, show that they are good oiti-
zens.   It requires that an alien shall

resided in the country and behaved
himself properly,   lt also  requires
that such alien shall, in presence of
the judge before whom his application is pending,   speak,  read and
write the English language intelligently.   An American paper says:
11 We fail to see any possible reason
why  saoh '< a  law  should not be
promptly and unanimously  passed
by congress and as promptly receive
executive  unction.     Residence of
five yean is surely little enough for
probation, and ability to speak, read
and write the language in which our
liws are printed, should,- we think,
in all cases be made a pre-requisitc
to exercise of franchise.    Thcextoii-
sion of thn dec tive franchise to aliens
who have been in. the  country but
six months, and have only  gone so
far toward citizenship its to declare
their wish to become such, is  little
less than a criminal perversion of the
theory upon which both citizenship
and the franchise arc based."   The
same paper adds that it hopes to see
the bill become law before the presidential elections in November.   It
is to be feared that our ootemporary
may be disappointed.   On  the eve
of the great national contest neither
of the national parties'is likely to
deal with such a   measure  oft  its
merits, for the reason that the foreign  American   vote,  comprising
principally the Irish11 and  German
elements, would regard anything like
the bill in question as decidedly unfriendly to their interests.   In fact
the  anarchy  and  fenianism  now
plaguing  the   American   poopli* so
much owe their magnitude  largely
to the foot that the politicians havo
pandered to these dangerous elements
for their votes.   It is the old story
of party first—oountry   afterwards.
Let  our Canadian politicians take
warning,  and  build  well for the
future. .
We published an article some
monthi ago calling attention to tho
short sightedness of sending thousands of dollars out of the country
annually to support the Louisiana
lottery scheme. It would appear
that the Louisiana lottery owes its
origin to a patriotic desire on the
part of the paternal state government to keep the people's money in
the state. The problem with which
the high-minded southern statesmen
(save the mark) had to wrestle Was
about this: "Tlie mercurial Louisiun-
ists would speculate in lottery tickets, and all sorts of games of hazard.
Thoy had an uncontrollable passion
for that sort of thing, and the country was being drained to gratify this
propensity, while foreign swindling
schemes Were flourishing. The people were being swindled, it was said,
out of milliw.of dollars by irre-
sponsible people who conducted lot-
tariei in tm nnderfumd and fraudulent way, —A tht often decamped
with the cash without ever turning
the wheel.    "It is not strange then,"
says a Louisiana apologist to the representative  of an   eastern paper,
".thrt.t'a responsible  body -of   iften
should organize »n iuililution which
would"stand botwe'en'tlio people Snd
the Scamp* who WoiRd /client t|iem,
and it is still less strange that the
state, having tlie interest of the people nt heart, to say nothing of substantial actualities received annually,   should not only authorize, but
foster an institution of  this   kind."
Tlie act under which the lottery was
incorporated is an interesting -one,
as   showing  under  what   oircum
stances the lottery came  into existence.   Article   2 of this act states
the  objeots  and   purposes  ofthe
Louisiana Stato Lottery Co. to be ns
follows: "(1). The protection of the
state against tho grent losses hcroto-
foro   incurred   by   sending,   largo
amounts of money to foreign countries for the purchase of lottery tickets and other devices,  thereby  impoverishing our own people.    (2).
To   establish   a solvent and reliablo
home institution for the sale of lottery, policy, and combination tickets,
devices, and certificates,   fractional
ports thereof at terms and prices in
just proportion to the prizes drawn,
and to insure perfect fairness  and
justice in the distribution of such
prizes.   (3). To  provide means to
raise a fund  for  educationaj   and
charitable purposes for the citizens
of Louisiana."   Article 5  provides
that the corporation shall pay to the
state of Louisiana the sum of 840,-
000 per annum, which sum shall be
payable quarterly in  advance from
and   after   the 1st day of January,
1869, to the state auditor, who shall
deposit the same in tlie treasury of
the state, and which sum   shall  be
exempt   from   nil other taxes and
licenses of any kind whatever.   The
charter granted the Louisiana State
Lottery Oo. under this act provides
for its continuance for  twenty-live
years from January, 1869.   When
the aot was first passed the Louisiana
Lottery Co. had   a   monopoly,   but
about eleven years ago the new state
constitution was adopted, which abrogated the monopoly privileges of
the company and threw  open   the
business to all.provided each charter
of privileges shall pay not less than
840,000 per annum into the treasury
of tho state, and provided, further,
that all charters shall cease and expire on the 1st of  January,   1895,
from which time  all  lotteries  are
prohibited in the state.   It is rather
difficult to reconcile the argument of
the philanthropists'who originated
the show, on the grounds that it was
a beneficent and necessary  institution,  with   the   clause prohibiting
lotteries   in ' the state after the 1st
day ot tfaniiru-y, 1895.    It is  to be
hoped that the passion  for  lottery
"speculating" in British   Columbia
may not attain such dimensions  as
to forco the government to establish
a home concern to save the country
being impoverished by foreign  gambling schemes.

■^'Well, -Ave went from Youngstown,

canvas laid out, aud whilo the hands wero
fixing up the slits nnd cut guys, tho result* of last night's fracas, I walked up
town and met the Mayor.
"Our touts were pitched on a lot* just
outside'tho corporation, nnd a river ran
behind the tent. The Wagons were all
drawn up iu Une along; the river bank.
As I said, I met the Mayor, and he was a
very pleasant gentleman, too, and together we walked down to a newspaper
oflice nud went in to see the editor.
"We woro chatting sociably when the
editor said:
'"Yauy/m^tulaiia all right this afternoon, Mr. Robbins, but thero won't be
anybody to tho show to-night. There'll
be moro fuu on tho outside,'
"They then told mo how the toughs always 'done up' a circus at night, aud how
they hod nover failed to make a success
of lb eitlior. The Mayor said if I waa in-,,
sldo. tho corporation ho might give we
sonic protection, but ae it was heoouldn't *
do a thing. '* --"*
"I just said thnt I gt.03.3ed J could protect myself, but I'll tell you, I began to
scheme a little right there.
"The end. of it w«*i I went book to the
circus lot and' called the hands together.
Then I sont a detail into the woods to get
clubs.   I told V-m to get good, heavy Mc-t-

Constipatton
It a universal and most troublesome disorder. It causes Headache, Mental Depression, impairs the Sight and Hearing,
destroys ttie Appetite, and, whon long
continued, causes Enlargement of the
Liver, Inflammation of the Bowels, and
Files. Constipation is speedily cured
by Ayer's Pilla.
For a numbor of months  I was
Xtroubled with Costiveuess, In conscience of which I suffered from Loss of
ppetlte. Dyspepsia, and a disordered
liver. My eyes also troubled me. I was
compelled to wear a shade over them,
and, at times, was unablo to bear exposure to the light. I was entirely
CURED BY USING
three boxes of Ayer's Pills. I have no
hesitation in pronouncing tlds medicine
to be the best cathartic over made —
James Ecclcs, Poland, Ohio.
I suffered from Constipation, and, consequently, from Headache, Indigestion,
and Files, for years. Ayer's Pills, which
I took at ttie suggestion of a friend, have
given me effectual relief. I commenced
taking this remedy two months ago, and
am now free from Constipation, the removal ot whioh has caused my other
troubles to disappear, and greatly Improved my general health.—W. Keeler,
Amherst, Mass.
I suffered from Constipation, whieh
assumed auoh an obstinate form that I
feared a stoppage ot the bowels. Two
boxel ot Ayer's Fills cured me, completely.— D. Burke, Saco, Me.        tt

Agin' the By-Laws.
The Vblmiisl publishes a dialogue between a live citizen and a decayed
moss-back, relative to the by.-laws
voted on in Victoria on Tuesday lost,
as follows: L. 0.—Well, did you vote
for the by-laws I D. M.—No, sir, I
voted against every one. To whioh our
cotemporary adds: " And the old
moss-back, who has made his ' pilo' iu
this city, went off, head in air, us if he
had done a inaguificoiit thing, instead
of having shown the smallness which
permeates his very being." We hopo

pleased with tho advantages and prospects of Westminster than any place he
has visited, rand, provided he is successful in securing suitable timber limits,
he has decide! to build his mill somewhere closo to this city. Mr. Prentiss
has had a long experience in the lumbering business and has plenty of capital to successfully carry out his project.

The Value nf Competition.
The ideu of persons taking a trip
from Weatminater tu Seattle to buy a
ticket to the east, via 0. P. R., seems
ridiculous when one can be purchased
at the ticket office at the station, but,
nevertheless, there are frequent cases
of this being done. Yesterday a gentleman who caino to the coast by the
Northern Pacific, left Westminster {pr.
Seattle there to purchase a ticket
over the 0. P. R. for his home in the
cast. The competition between the
Northern Pacifio and C. P. R. at Sea-
attle enables him to purehase a ticket
there at a much lower rate than at this
city, and tho trip to the Sound, instead
of boing a loss, pays a handsome pro-
lit The Value to the publio of j competition in railways could hot be better-
exemplified than by this instance.

It was nearly 0 o'olock lust night
when the Good Templars returned
from their excursion to the North Arm.
The weather during the day was most
disagreeable, the showers following
each other in suoh close succession
that it was found necessary to remain
in MuClenry's bam the most of the
time. Tho Wostminster, Vancouver,
North Arm, Ladners and Lulu Islund
lodges were all represented, and a
pleasant day was spent in fraternizing
with each other. Enormous quantities of ginger ale and soda water wero
consumed, and the numbor of "dead
men" at the closo of the.day was marvellous to behold. Mr. McOleery was
heartily thanked for the use of his
premises, without which the picnickers
would hare had to put up with much
discomfort.
I'ulpable Carelessness.
Steamboats, especially when conveying excursion parties, should exercise every precaution and provide every
reasonable facility for the convenience
and particularly the safety ot the passengers. We are told that when a
small stoamor arrived home with un
exeursion party at this city, the otlier
evening, no gang-plunk wns put nut,
but that the pic-nickers, including
Womeu ond children, had to swarm
over the boat's railing on to the wharf,
which was rather dangerous work. If
this is so, and an accident had occurred, the person in oharge of the
steamer wuuld have been responsible.
If the pic-nickers tmik this method of
unloading themselves from choice, it
is to be feared that their practice daring the day was not altogether consis
tent.witil-tlioir.anli-"nuleiit". theories.

Miners who haae just returned from
the McMurdo district, 30 miles southeast of Donald, report it the richest
and biggest thing in Britisli Columbia.
The ledges are well defined between
walls of granite and slate, the ore
going high in both gold ond ailvor, and
is free milling. The district is above
the timber line, being 0,000 feet above
the sea level, and is in the glacier belt.
Snow falls to a considerable depth, and,
in fact, a little falls every month in
the year. Arohie McMurdo made the
first locations in the district, three of
which John Hepburn, the mining man,
has obtained an interest ih. He has
already sent men and tools in to commence development work, and will
send more men in immediately on hia
return from- Victoria. He compares
two of the claims, in appearance to the
great Spanish mine at Calaveras, California. The main ledge un ihem ia
ovor 00 feet wide, and is orossed by 7
or 8 narrowor ones. In fact, there
were so many voins thst one location
was not wide enough to take in tho
ground, so two had to be made. The
ore carries grey copper, sulphurets of
iron, and free gold, the latter visible to
the naked eye. From $3 to (5 a day
to the man can be made by- crushing
the rock in n hand mortar, McMurdu
cleaning up over f 100 iu that way.

The following newsy communication
we have received from a new correspondent at Pavillion, in the interior:
We have had an unusually wet season here so fsr. Crops generally are
good, and we hope that August will
give ui better hirtest weather than we
hate had in July. The rain has given
us fine feed on the ranges, and stock
are doing well— MoAdani Ferguson
has opened au hotel in Lillooet.—Mr.
A. Allen, our junior member, has got
home at last. His health is improviug.
—It was very late this season beforo
any work was done on our roads, and
now, unless the number of men employed is greatly increased. Jack Frost
will be upon us before the necessary
work is done on the roads. —Tho Cayoosh Croek mines aro still busy. Faith
in our quarts ledges in this distriot is
stronger then ever. All that is wanted
iB capital, and Lillooet will surprise the
rest of tho province. So say those
who have visited some of the ledges,
especially the Bonanza. It iB no doubt
very rich, judging from tho nro takeu
out so far.—Mr. Phil. Gallagher is
building a store on his farm, a short
distance below Pavilion Mill, whero
Mr. Lee, the miller, also keeps a slore.
—Messrs McDonald & Harris have
opened up a new store in Lillooet.
We wish them success, and hope they
will shut up their store on Sunday.
Open stores in the' upper country are a
common aunoyance to all who believe
in the observance'of the Lord's day.—
The Rov. James Wood, of Clinton,
visile along the Lillooet road, and
preaches tothe people of Lillooet in
the sohool house, at intervals of a few
weeks. We hope lo see him preach
there regularly when the Lillooet
bridge is completed.—Salmon are now
coming up and the Indians will lay in
the winter supply.—There is trouble at
the 22-mile ranch, and we fear life is
in danger, if the Indian department
does not aet promptly and see that the
chief gets justice.—Chips.
("opnty Court
Before Hon. Mr. Justice McCreight.
Yoslerday the caso of Jno. Patterson
vs. D. Oppenheimer, E. C. Baker,
G. L. Milne, C. T. Dupont, J. W.
Powell, N. P. Snowdon, Tatlow, and
others, came up in the county court.
The action herein waa brought to
recover {283, balance of a larger sum
of $900, claimed by pluntitf in respect nf certain clearing done on portion of lot 200, in the vicinity of Vanoouver.
The defence waa that Mr. Oppenheimer never gave a certificate that
the work was properly done, and that
the work wns not done according to
specifications.
The plaintiff deposed that he originally tendered for the work at two
figures, No. 1 at $20 an acre, No. 2
at $18 an acre; but subsequently agreed to take the whole contract under
specification No. 3 at $14 per acre,
and that, notwithstanding at the time
of making the agreement it was well
understood Mr. Charleson was to aot
as inspector, yot whon tho work was
dune Mr. Oppenheimer refused to
allow that gentlemon to inspect, .would
not go himself and yet refused giving
auy certificate.
Tlio plaintiff wus submitted to a
lengthy cross-examination without
eliciting anything of importance. Mr.
Charleson and Mr. Boyd testified that
the work waa properly done, evon according to the higher specification.
For the defence Mr. Oppenheimer
alleged tbat tho work waa not done as
per contract and insisted that the two
specifications formed part of the eon-
tract.
On cro8s-oxainitiatinii ire denied that
Cliail.stni was tn act ns agent tn give
the certificate, and admitted that, although he was one of the owners himself he was not bound to pay exoept he
thought fit to give a certificate. He
admitted that he nover went on the
land, but only aaw it from Westminster avenue as he drove along in a
buggy, and that ull the owners hsd
paid up excopt Mr. Edmonds, who refused to pay his share.
Mr. Jaques testified that the work
was not done according to specification.
On cross-examination he admitted he
had no experience iu impacting clearing work, but yet thought his judgmont
superior to that of Mr. Charleson, Several othor witnesses woro culled to the
same effect.
The defendants' counsel contended,
1st, that Mr. Boyd should havo been a
plaintiff; 2nd, that the condition precedent as to a certificate not being fulfilled, was fatal to plaintiff's case. Mr.
Bole pointed out that Boyd had no interest in the money, as the payment to
him was for Patterson as bookkeeper,
aud that there Was no coudition precedent at all: (under Batterbury vs.
Vyse, Z. H. & 0. 43.); but if there
was a condition precedent it waa
wrongfully withheld by a person interested in the contract, namely D. Oppenheimer, who waa an owner.
As no case could be established giving u mau a right to say whether he
himself is to lo the judge or whether
he himself is to pay money due on a
contract with himself or not, the legal
arguments were reserved.
After an exhaustive oharge the jury
found a verdict for plaintiff for the full
amount claimed, Mr. Bole, Q. C, for
plaintiff; Mr, Atkinson and Mr. Jenna
for defendants,
assays have been had, but the hboVe is
n fair average.—Truth.

Ottawa, July 28.—The minister of
marine haa awarded a gold wateh to
the master, a silver watch to the chief
officer, and a gratuity to each of the
crew of the Italian barque Savina for
bravery and humanity in rescuing the
officers and crew ol the barquentine
Harriet Uphatn, of Londonderry, N,
S., on the 7th of February last, while
tho latter was on a voyage from Montevideo lo Arcegon, Brazil. The
Canadian vessel encountered a gale,
which dismantled her and left her rolling helplessly in a heavy sea, the crow
expecting her to founder every moment. The Savina arrived opportunely and rescued the mariners, the best,
of the Csnadian vessel having been
stove in. After a long stay on the
vessel, during which thev wore treated with great kindness, the crew of
the Harriet Upturn  were landed at
bia, must wait a little while longer before ther ara discovered, as the Sit
James Douglas, whieh is sail to be
the only available vessel, is required by the provincial government {or
special service. The statement is
made that it was found impracticable
to charter another steamer. The British Columbian government of course
cannot be blamed for looking. after

they must look out for themselves.
