SCIENTIFIC MISCELLANY.
Kimsiuii soldier, have lately suf-
fenrcl from night-blimlness (liemera-
lopia), an nH'irction (teuerally due to
luck of proper food. Au epidemic
of thin ilisirnsir ut a time when bread
was tbe chief diet hae been known
to disappear on a return to animal
food.
Creolinc, a kind of tar obtained
by dry distillation of bituminous
cual, is recommended by Dr. Neu-
dbrfer, of Vienna, as the most trustworthy, convenient and ' harmless, as well as the cheapest, of antiseptic dressings for erysipelas, tumors, wounds, etc.
An immense terrestrial globe, on
the scale of one-millionth, will be a
feature of the Paris Exhibition of
1889. It will be about forty feet
in diameter, and will give important spaces in their actual relative
size. Paris, for example, will cover
about a sixth of a square inch.
Oanxibau in the midst ok Civilization.—A queer nook of Brazil
was explored by an Englishman, Mr.
John Stearns, two years ago, and
has just been desoribed by him. It
is in the valley of the Rio Doce, and
seems to have been neglected by
settlers on account of the unnavi-
gable character of the stream.
Though within 250 miles of the
city of Bio de Janeiro, the natives
are naked and cannibals, with no
religion. The district contains
much valuable rosewood.
A Kew Musical Insthument.—
To furnish the music of the harp,
without requiring the skill of the
harpist, has been the object of M.
Dietz, of Brussels, in designing the
Olaviharji. ' The instrument is provided with a'ke3*-*l)6_i»l? kpen which
any pianist may play, but the
strings are mechanically plucked, as
by the fingers of the harpist, instead
of being struck by hammers. The
strings are of metal, with an insulated covering to give the tone of
catgut.
Light in tiie Dark Continent.
—In tracing the gradual opening up
of the African continent, during
the last hundred years, Dr. Suplian
finds that the days of pioneer exploration are not yet over. A few
patches of the surface have been
surveyed with some care, of others
wo have a general knowledge, and
in others lines of travel have been
run through, but there .are still
great regions—as in parti of the
long-tmveiled Sahara even—that
are an absolute blank to civilized
man.
A Martial Cataclysm.—Presenting the greatest analogy with
our earth of any of the planets,
Mars is naturally an object of great
interest at the times of its nearest
approach. During the past few
months its surface has been carefully studied by Perrotin, of Nice,
and others, and if their observations
are correct, it appears that our
planetary neighbor has been the
scene of changes, since two years
ago, compared with whioh the inundations in China were quite insignificant. The equatoral land known
as Sybiu, covering at area larger
than France, has been submerged,
the entire district now presenting
the appearance of a sea. A new
canal has become visible north of
this place, and another new canal
traverses the white snow-cap of the
North Pole.
A Million Yeaks.—To the human understanding the vast stretches of time involved in geological
history are utterly incomprehensible. It is not easy, indeed, to form
nn idea of what period even a million of years is, though Droll tells
us how a striking impression of such
a lapse may be conveyed to the
mind. Stretch u piece of paper
eighty-three feet four inches long
around the walls of a room somewhat over twenty feet square, re
call the events of life to give some
conception of a hundred years, nml
then consider that a murk one
tenth of an inch broad ut one end of
tho paper represents the century,
while the whole strip gives place for
only a million years ! This illustration is worth trying. Could we
stand, continues the author of "Climate and Time," upon the edne of a
gorge, a mile and a half in depth,
that had been cut out of tbe solid
rock by a tiny stream souroely visible at the bottom of this fearful
nbyds, and were we informed that
this little streamlet was able to
winr ol)' annually only one-tenth of
nn inch from its rocky bed, what
would our conception bo of tho prodigious length of time that this
stream must have taken to excavate thn gorge I Wo should certainly feel startled on finding that
the stream had performed this enormous amount of work in something loss than a million of years.

THE SKEENA AFFAIR.
Ottawa, July 28,—The war ofllce
late lut night received a dispatch
stating that tbe warship Caroline, carrying the expedition from Victoria to
quell the Indian uprising on the
Skeena River, arrived at Essington
yesterday, a small village at the mouth
of the river. The Indians met Ihe
vessel and talked with the officen.
They exhibited a sullen disposition,
and while they did not show actual
hostility are evidently in sympathy
with their rebellious brethren of the
interior. After leaving Essington, the
Caroline with the troops proceeded to
the head of navigation about 20 miles
up the river. The battery of artillery
will be taken to Kit las Canyon to
await advices from a oompany uf special
police, who will push forward toward
Hazleton. The chief uf police will take
his men up river in oanoea, and if resistance be offered he will drop down
stream to the encampment of military,
who will advance on both Hides of the
stream, thus proteotinu tlio provisions
which witl be taken up in canoes. The
remainder ni the expedition will embark ou hoard tho Caroline's boats and
be tuwed by a steam brunch tn tho end
of boat navigation. The latter part of
the route in rough, being merely un
Indian trail, and it. is expected that the
troops will take four days to make the
march. A depot uf reacrvca and base
of supply will be established ut tlio
head of navigation, where part of the
troops will remain to await tho result
pf tile advance.

AN IMPORTANT DECISION.
Brantford, July 28 Judge Jones
rendered a valuable dociaon at the
court house yesterday. His honor reaffirmed the sentence of 4 months imprisonment in the central prison
against C. Young, butcher, who was
convicted of attempted rapo upon a
young Hsmilton girl named Carrie
Howick. The revised statute gives no
option to the judge but to sentence
him to 2 years in the penitentiary for
such offence. His honor had thia
pointed out to him by the crown attorney, and decided to communicate
with the minister of justico. This he
did, snd now reaffirms the former sentence, citing the English statute which
gives the judge discretionary powen
in such cases. iw

CORRESPONDENCE.
School Hatlen,
Editor Columbian.—In a letter published several weeks ago by Mr, T.J.
Trapp, (then secretary, of the school
board), it was stated that Mr. J. S. Clute
(the chairman of the board) had resigned
because the trustees, after having decided
that a ohange of teachers would he in the
interest of the high school, weakened and
declined to make the ohange. Borne
months ago tho board again seems to
have reached a similar conclusion, but
again weakened, and as a result we now
have the resignations of Mossra. Trapp
and Turner. It will be seen, therefore,
that these trustees have resigned because
the balance of the board is afraid to
make a change which a great many people believe to be necessary if onr school
la to come up to the full measure of Its
usefulness. It will be admitted, too,
that the three trustees whose sendees
have boon lost oil account of the'singular
conduot of the others, are gentlemen
whose judgnien and position entitle them
to public confidence. Are tho people
quito sure the interests of tiro sohool are
being best served by maintaining it under the present management!—Youn,

Britain,'hW-prcitty near the same
relation to the body politic of the
countries mentioned us tlie proverbial " fifth wheel" lo a coach. Both
have been weighed in the balances
of public opinion and found wanting,
and the execution of the popular
verdict will probably not be long delayed, Lord Salisbury, rather against
his grain, but impelled -by a pressure
that lie must recognize, and daio not
ignore, has been trying, crab fashion,
to patch up what he would wish to
pass for reforms in the constitution
of the British house of lords, by tho
appointment of lifo peers for merit,
but his proposals have been received
with merciless ridicule by the liberal
and radical press. They want
uothing done by halves, and characterize the Tory leader's so-called reforms as an attempt to buttress up
the absurd principle of ou hereditary
legislative chamber. Tho proposition
to appoint lifo peers for merit, thoy
say, amounts simply to a confession
that the present house of lords is
indefensible, and an excrescence
upon modem civilization which cannot much longer be endured. Lord
Salisbury only gets' credit for trying
to postpone the day of tho British
democracy's triumph. One paper
compares the government's bill with
the cannula which the doctors in-
sei-ted in the throat of the Into Emperor Frederick of Germany. It
kept the royal patient alive for a
. few months, but could not help his
complaint. Tho house of lords, says
another paper, represents conquest,
and its downfall will signify the uprising of the crushed Saxon serfs to
enter into tbe enjoyment of their
own onee more. The British radicals
do not want a house of lords at all,
but they say that next to uo hereditary legislators they prefer " a house
as vicious as possible, till the time
comes for carting it awny to the
dunghill of obsolete tyrannies." From
this it appears that the proposal to
appoint life peers at the rato of five
a year from among the learned, men
of the kingdom, while it casts discredit upon the present house of
lords, is not likely to satisfy the constitutional reformers, who are bent
upon the destruction of all the survivals of feudal privileges. When
the British house of lords shall have
received decent burial—if interment
in a " dunghill" can be called decent
—then may our " upper house " of
Canada, despite a small sprinkling
of the "salt of the earth " within its
walls, look well to its raiam d'etre.
An attempt is being made in eastern Oanada to " sit down " on the
" bucket shop" people. An act was
passed at the last session of the
commons designed to suppress this
form of gambling. The origin of
the terra " Slucket shop " in this direction is rather disugreoubly signi
licant, and its recital is liable to
harrow the feelings of the patrons of
second-class eating houses, in the
larger cities especially. Tho second-
class restaurants have been tlesi_
natod "bucket shops," it appears,
from the fact, or tho; sneaking suspicion of the fact, that these caterers
to the fastidious public were wont to
make regular calls at the back doors
of the boa ton hotels, bucket in hand,
to receive tho scraps which the S2.00
. a day epicure had left on tbe side of
his platter. , Similarly the " bucket
shops" in gambling vernacular,
speculated upon the leavings of the
high-toned manipulators of the stock
exchange. Upon the same principle,
probably, that stealing " two bits "
is petty larceny, and "getting away"
with 1100,000 is often only financial
" crookedness," the " bucket shops"
have been declared illegal, while the
stock exchange enjoys the protection
of the law. Their operations and
methods are similar. From a moral
standpoint there is very little difference, although the " bucket shop "
is unquestionably the more disreputable of tbe two. It is patronized
chiefly by the working classes nnd
the Smaller fry of speculators, und
run very often by the most unscru
pulous men. Under the net we have
mentioned, the authorities of Toronto aro endeavoring to suppress the
institutions in that city. The police
made a raid recently upon Hawaiian
It Co., bucket shop keepers, Toronto
street, The Toronto Empire of the
21stinst. says:   "Yesterday after
. npon Inspector Archibald, with De.
Motives Reburn and Burrows and a
staff of constables, made a swoop on
the Hanrahan firm. He seized the
ledgers, blank forms, quotation slips
and other documents which he
found about the office. He took into custody all the persons he found
on the premises, and . they were
looked up in the police station with
promptitude and dispatch. Are.
porter of the Empire was on hand,
but he would not be allowed into the
office when the prisoners were being
searched. When they had been
locked up in, the cage the. reporter
was allowed in and he had a look at
them before the slido was drawn on
thorn.   They were all well dressed,
Snd did not appear very much cast
own; in foot, they joked like men
who relied on their backing to see
them safely out of tlieir trouble."
When the bucket shop bill passed,
it is said all the bucket shops shut
down at onee, but some of tbem
have again started on a new plan of
business, which may be legal or
which may not. At auy rate, the

British Columbia is a country of
many resources—as numerous and
varied as are tho physical features
of its geography. A country of
" magnificent distances," its natural
wealth is best described by the same
adjective, In the very number nnd
variety of its resources, as well as in
tho extent and possibilities of each,
it occupies a most favorable, not to
say unique, position among the garland of provinces which make up
this fair Dominion. The tiller of
the soil has learned from experience
that tbe single crop plan in farming
is not unattended with danger, as a
bad year or some untoward circumstance may cause the labor of a year
to bo lost, whereas with a varied
system of crops, the failure of one
would be counterbalanced by tho
success of the others. Similarly, a
country that depends almost solely
on agrioulture, for instance, has not
equal advantages with another that
adds to this industry, manufacturing
and mining. British Columbia,
though, besides farming, manufacturing and mining, can boast of unexampled resources in lumbering,
river fisheries, sea-fisheries, and fur-
bearing animals. Under the heads
of agriculture and mining we have
the same principle of diversity exemplified. Besides hay and grain- ~
tho principal crops of strictly agricultural countries—the soil, climate,
und other circumstances are admirably adapted for all sorts of stock
raising, and the various root crops
and othor vegetables, together with
every variety of large and small
fruits common to the temperate zone,
are grown here to perfection. Sheep
raising and fruit growing, we might
say in passing, admit of an almost
indefinite development. The latter
is yet in its infancy, and on the
lower Fraser sheep raising has been
practically overlooked. Our up-
country wool has already earned the
name of being cheaper and better
than the eastern article, and our
mutton cannot be excelled. With
the present woollen mill, and others
which are sure to arise throughout
the country, furnishing a home market for the wool, and a ready market
at all times for mutton, sheep raising
ought to pay, and we have no doubt
that this fact will soon be appreciated by farmers in this district. Of
the extent and variety of our mineral .wealth, embracing all tbe pre
cious metals aud most of tbe useful
ones, it will not be necessary to enlarge here. Our immense timber re.
sources have been partially developed, and several industries havo already grown from these. When
anvthing like a full development
shall have been attained, besides
rough and dressed lumber, spars,
piles, sash and doors, and furniture,
the latter principally for home use,
all theso will be more extensively
produced for the home market, a
vast export trade built up, and ship
building and other industries growing out of our unlimited forest
wealth, established. The river fisheries, with proper protection, will
continue to yield their tinny wealth,
the sea fisheries have not yet beon
opened up, but promise a rich harvest in the future, and with the constantly increasing railway facilities,
and otlier nineteenth-century civil-
izni's and developers, the progress
which this province must mako in
the next few years will astonish tbe
most sanguine. If any province has
a more hopeful outlook than British
Colvmbia, we should like to hear of
it, and of ull tbe cities and districts
in this favored land—VVestmiuster
first.

distinctions, buf will lament as'bittc'iTy
while rldlng.on tho paternal arm at tlio
witching hour of midnight us when
clasped tenderly to tho mother's bosom
nt sunny midday. Its solo creed ami
language Is a cry; and no Christian or
heathen over lived up to a creed with
moro coiiBClontloiro  lldclity than doea
tho baby.
Tiro baby Is not partial to parer-oi*lc;
Hint is a failing of Its parents." For
Itself, tho Infant would much prefer lamentation between meals to sleep. But
there Is a limit to all things, ami, thank
hoavon 1 paregoric Is cheaper, than cu-
diiritnco.
Judging from my personal experience,
a largo share of tlio baby's early lifo is
passed on tho cars. I do not know that
I over entered a car without finding a
baby ahead of mo. I always. brace myself for tlio wuil tho minute I open
tho door, nnd nine times out nf ten It
Is hero. Tiro car may bo full of jrus-
sengors, but for all practical purposes
lt Is occupied entirely by the Infant.
It Is my firm conviction thut babies
do not liko to travel. I maybe mistniieii,
for 1 baso my judgment entirely upon appearances, but I have nover yot seen ft
baby who seemed to bo perfectly,satisfied with tho arrangements provided
for the comfort of the traveling publio
by railroad corporations.
Why under tliese circumstances, babies
should bo compelled to travel i cannot
comprehend. Perhaps it is because their
fond but unseillsh parents wish tho
world to share with them the winsome-
ness and loveliness or Inrrrncy. I bo-
lie.o this is the osplanhtioa usually
given by conductors.
But thero Is one disagreeable feature
about babies-I will nnl sny which one;
iorao people think it |_ tin; nose, ollinr.
lire hair. However tliat mny be. von are
sxpectpd to admire tliu little brutes just
t- much ns il they wero really beautiful. • '
Tho fond mother will nover forgivo you
if you don't sty siit*r.tiling real sweet
-ibout her clioruh. You must disguls'o
your roal sentiment, and deal in
r'eiieercd platitudes nt lir, top-swoot-

onee one yourself.
Your nose wa-jiiit as red anrl indeterminate as that; ynur hair was just us

A portable sanitary stovo Is called foi

"There is great need for a portable
stovo which might ho used In a sick room
without cither poisoning the atmosphere

proportion of the availablo oxygen.
" The apparatus should bo of moderate
A,:e, should give but a fair amount of
heat, should bo capable of boiling a small
kettle of water, and should be providod
with a flexible tube which might be conducted into tho chimney.
"Thero ought to be no great difficulty,

nature required. It would be invaluable
for use in cases in which, no nurse being
in attendance to keep up an ordinary fire,
a moderate temperature might be main*
tained." , ,,

The lion, member fur Draycsrl nalil
while he was io New Orleans the government thero had been found guilty
of tho same act and when tho disturbance was quelled the police found 19
members of the government had been
lynched. The lion, member didn't
wish to threaten but he hadn't travelled ult over tho continent without picking up a littie valuable information
which ho would demonstrate at the
next meeting of the huuso unless the
abuse was remedied.
Mr. Speaker pledgod his word that
the members should hnvo no further
cause for complaint.
The hou. member for Ohurchton
aBKed permission to introduce the
following resolution: Whereas twu noted engineers representing the C.P.R,
while locating a branch line of that
corporation from this city to Blaine
were maliciously thrown into a slough
composed of Surrey mud, by a vindictive horse, thereby causing them great
discomfort, the loss of two suits of
olothes, three bottles of eau de Cologne, a corkscrew, two glasses, a pack
of cards and a package nf tobacco,
Therefore be it
Rosolved that this house do convey
to the aforesaid gentlemen its most
sincere regrets at the casualty the
said gentlemen met with, and that
this house, individually and collectively, heartily .ytnp.thii.es with them
and bewails the loss of the bottled
liquids.
The hon. member for Mntsqui hud
muoh pleasure in seconding this resolution. He had met with a similar loss
on one occasion and he couldn't think
of it exoept with feeling, of the deepest emotion. He would second the
resolution but he truttod it would
never be his melancholy duly to do sn
again.
The resolution wss carriod unanimously, somo of the members ill thoir
enthusiasm voting twice.

When the spesker took the chair
yesterday morning very few seats on
either side nf the house were vacant.
The galleries, ss usual, were packod,
aod sitting room wss so scarce that one
eqihustnatio' individual mounted, tho
hurricane deck of the stove and kept
hia seat throughout the proceedings,
notwithstanding the threat of the ser-
geant-at-nrms to start a fire in it if he
didn't got down.
The hon. member for Harrison on
resuming the debate on the Southern
Railway agreement said he trusted the
house would decide on the question he-
fore risintr, as important business necessitated his departure from tho city
ou a visit to his constituents. He had
heard on good authority that a company proposed to run a tram-car line
to the Hot Springs, and this must be
prevented even if it became necessary
to introduce speciul legislation on the
matter. He contended that every lover
of Britisli Columbia and the Hot
Springs should be ready to oppose, by
force;6f'*amis"if necessary, the intro
ductiou of a tramway into the prov
ince. He had written to the Imperial
authorities, advising that body to make
tho Hot Springs tlie iinval station fur
North Pacific Ueet (great applause),
which could bo easily "accomplished
either by a canal or a ship railway.
Personally he favored tho latter plan,
as it would odd another great attraction to the Hot Springs.
The hon. member for Ceraeterjvillo
thanked the hon. member for Harrison
for the able discourse he hsd given on
the advantages of tho Southern railway. At the last meeitng of the house
he had opposed the scheme, but he
now favored it und would do his utmost to aid Ihe bill through the house.
He had good reasons for changing hi.
mind and did not object to laying a
few of them before the houae. In the
construction of railways there is always
a large number of accident., fatal and
otherwise, but generally the former.
Inquisitive workmen will insist upon
examining a stick of dynamite after
tho fuse hss been frrod, and this in-
3uisitiveness is often attended with
isuslrous effects. Cans of nitroglycerine were often exploded by practical jokers, and trains un newly-constructed lines hsd a hsbit of jumping
the traok and mortally wounding all
hands on board. Such accidents as
theso happening iu the neighborhood
of a large number of honest working-
men naturally dismembered u groat
many beyond recognition, so much so
in fact that lie had known instance,
where three coronet.' inqueit. h.d
boen held ovor uno body, which meant,
in plain English, three funeral., and,
consequently, three ouittns. He had
gone over the whole subject vory thoroughly and found by close calculation
that, providing the Southern railway
is judiciously constructed, the oity will
derive a benefit of at least 150,000
from funerals alone. He would, therefore, from a purely unselfish and patriotic standpoint, givo his cordial support to the railway project.
The hon. member for Surrreyroads
was glad to see his hon. friend had
wakened to reason. No man could
look into the projeot carefully without
discovering many wave by which the
community at large would derive much
benefit. If a branch line wen run
from Brownville to Ladners, along the
Scott road he thought the railway facilities of the provinoe would be cum-
plete, but not until then. Beforo sitting down the bon. member said he
wished to oall the attention of the
house to the execrable quality of Ihn
drink furnished tbe members. It
might be economy to water the
grog, but some day the house would
rise in its wrath, overthrow the government and appeal to the people to support a party that would pledge the
members pure liquor.
Mr. Speaker said he would iittond
to this matter forthwith,. It was com-

EiriTOR Columbian.—I would like
to have these questions answered: Has
the oouncil cancelled the agreement
made with Angus Grunt concerning a
ferry to be run between N. W. and
Surrey; if not cancelled, can Angus
Grunt claim damages, if his rights are
interfered with by running another
ferry within the limits made by the
charter. 876,000 is asked for the furnishing of an efficient steam ferry, suitable for all the purposes mentioned.
That sum should go a long way in paying far the whole. As this is a speculation scheme, the city should Imvo the
tint mortgage to that amount on the
ferry; ana iii case of a transfer into
other hands than tho present company,
the city should have a voice in the
transaction. Ono of tho conditions
states that the ferry is to bo also for
publio service. Now, as the council
haa jumped the track, and free the
company from municipal taxes fur 25
yean, for that length of time fuot
piiMeuuui-s should be carried by the
ferry free uf cunt, anil animals and
freight nt thu luwi-sl possible rate,
Sir, it seems to ine tlint clansus 0 uud
7 in foundry by-law uro very misty,
and likely to cause troublo. The
council is nut to be callod on to pay
any money until thoy have satisfactory
evidence that the company has sufficient capital to build and operate these
works. Clanso 7 says an agreement
shall be made providing for the erection of works in the eity limits, or adjacent thereto, and on north side of
Fraser, and to cost not leas than (75,-
000, and shall have a sufficient number
of men employed lo efficiently operate
tho same at all times. The above
needs no comment. The city had
better have the buildings and works in
operation before one cent is paid, and
a mortgage ou the works tn the amount
ofthemoneyfurnish.il. Promise, in
this case should nut be taken, as they
are likely to he broken. Question — Is
