NOTES AND COMMENTS.
A machine has lieon invented
which will fling a man 15,000 feet
into the air. Every newspaper
office should have oiie, thinks an exchange,
Tho idea that fish food was brain
food had a run of ten years before
any one asked why Esquimaux, who
cat tho most fish, had no mental
smartness.
An English authority calculates
that l-i;,'distilleries employ only ono
workman for 60 to lOOomployed
in other manufactories using tho
s;i ne amount of capital.
The \ltiv, 8. Gregson has been
working hord to inculcate total
abstinence principles among the
soldiers of tlio Indian army, and
now Sir 1-Yederic Roberts says that
tho-result of the work is practically
equal to tho addition of two battalions to tho effective forces of
India,   A grand testimonial,   that.
A ferocious burglar and tramp
broke into the houso of Mrs. Greenwood, ti New York woman, and
boforo proceeding to business ato
liberally of ono of the lady's mince
pies. In the morning he was found
seated in the middle of the kitchen
iloor in a dazed and helpless condition, and ho fell an easy prey to
the officers. The mince pie didn't
havo any brandy in it, either.—Ex.
A lady on Mount Vornon street,
Boston, told her newly-acquired
Irish maid the other day to say sho
was not at homo in caso anyone
called. One visitor did come, and
sho is responsible for tho story, "Is
Mrs, Blank in ?" she said, when tho
door was opened in response to her
ring. "No ma'am," replied Bridget,
stoically, "she's not at home, and
may God forgive the nwful lie I'm
toll hi' ye." Whereupon she slammed
tho door in the visitor's fuco, and
that was tho end of it,—Chicago
Tribune.
Mrs; Amnion has become a pauper
in Sharon, Pn. Sho wus tho mother
of "Goal Oil Johnny Steel." Oil was
struck on her husband's farm along
iii tbo sixties, antl her son suddenly
camo in possession of millions. These
lie soon squandered with a reckless--
nOss that became proverbial in that
section of the state. Ho soon had
nothing, and had to support himself
as best lie could. He was killed
near his home uot long ugo whilo
walking on n railway track. His
mother now goes to the poor-houso,
a sad example of tho tieldeness of
fortune, when tho jade is not cautiously treated.—Ex.
There appears to bo somo slight
reason to believe that ex-President
Cleveland may once more turn his
eyes towards the Whito House. He
was recently asked to state whether
an alleged interview with him, in
which he was mado to say positively
that he would not accopt a presidential nomination in 1892 and that
his public lifo was at an end, was
correct or not. His reply was that
the report of the interview was very
inaccurate and misleading. Tho
statement does not contain much
definite information, but it has been
eagerly picked up by those who aro
already speculating as to political
probabilities.
Returning as ho does from un
unknown laud, Lord Lonsdalo lias us
all completely at his mercy. He
can tell tho most marvellous talcs,
and the confiding public will havo
to swallow them. On tho Hay
river ho claims to have scon a waterfall that knocks Niagara Fulls into
a cocked hat, to speak figuratively,
for it is 200 feet high and a mile and
a half wide! These improvements
on Niagara are turning up at intervals, Tho last ono was away up
nortii of Quebec district. It has
nover obtruded itself upon the
tourist imagination to any great
extent, and tho Hay river bonanza
will likely meet tho same fate.—Ex.
Tho senato of Now York acted
very churlishly tho other day when
it refused to grant tho privileges
of the floor to Sir Oliver Mowat,
premier of tho provinco of Ontario,
becauso he holds oflice undor Queen
Victoria- It was an act of gross
discourtesy unworthy of tho senate
and unworthy of tho state. If Sir.
Gladstone should visit tho United
States, would any senator refuso to
accord him the privileges of the floor,
Yet Mr. Gladstone hus held oflice
undor tho English Queen, and wc all
hope that ho may live to do so again.
The act of the senate yesterday was
wholly without oxcuso or palliation.
It was a pieco of petty demagogism,
unworthy of an American legislative
hotly,—Brooklyn Times.
An amusing incident is reported
from the town of Bruce, in South
Australia. On a certain Sunday
night three ladies were in the local
church, when the dpor was suddenly
open by a hideous-looking object,
and they, thinking it was his Satanic
majesty, slammed tho door, and,
rushing to the windows, screamed
loudly for assistance. Their ories
attracted the notico of two gentlemen, who hastened to the church,
and found that the oause of the
hubbub was due to the presence of
an ourang-outang, which had been
attracted by the lights. It was
found to havo strayed from the
custody of some Afghans who were
camped noar the town. Needloss
to say, the "old boy" was speedily
captured and led away, muoh to the
relief of the ladies.
ANNUAL MEETING
Of tho C. P. R. Shareholders. Earnings and Expenses Show a
Handsome Profit.
The President in His Speech Attacks the Hostile Attitude of

The Receipts to aud from British

Montreal, May 8.—The annual
meeting uf the C. P. H. was held this
afternoon. Tlio old board was ro elected with tho exception of Mr. Grenfell
uf Loudon, England, who is replaced
by Rubt, Skinner. Thu annual report
ia very satisfactory. It waa decided to
build a new lino from Montreal to
Lako St. Louis, within tho line of the
Grand Tiunk, and also to pay moro
attention to local traflic all along tho
Hue. The year's receipts aro excel-*
lent, being fifreeu per cent, ahead of
last year. Tho meeting ia still in pro-
press at 2.45 p. m. Tlio eighth annual
report of the directors of tho C, P.
B. Oo. was submitted at tho annual
meeting of tho shareholders held at
Montreal, 8th May, 1889. The gross
earnings for tho year wero §13,195,-
535.00, tho working expenses were
§9,324,760.08, and the net earnings,
83,870,77492. Deducting the fixed
charges accuring tliis year, of §3,544,-
351.00 the surplus was §320,423.92.
The South Eastern itail way was worked
by your company during iho year for
the account of the trustees, but the
results uro not included in this report.
The following is a comparative state-
nienl of tho earnings and expenses for
the past three years.
Total Eaunincs.—i860, 310,081,-
803.50; 18S7, $11,000,412.80: 18S3,
§13,195,535,00.
Expenses, -•* 18S6, 80,378,317.05;
1887, $8,102,294.04; 1888, 89,324,-
760.08.
Net Earnings.—1880, $3,703,486.-
54: 1887, §3.504,118.10; 1888, ?8,-
870,774.92.
The earnings per passenger par mile
for tho past year wero 1.70 cents, and
per ton of freight per mile 1.02 cents,
as compared with 1,98 and 100.0 respectively for 1887. The decrease in
thu rate for passenger per mile was
chiefly, if not entirely, duo to the
large increaso in emigratioii to tho
Northwest and British Columbia as
compared with the previous year, tho
emigrants being carried at exceedingly
low rates. The results of the past
yenr'a working havo not provuu so satisfactory as was anticipated at the date
of the last annual report. This was
mainly due to the exceedingly light
crop of Ontario in 1837, Nearly all of
that crop wns moved beforo tbo closo
of tho yoar in which it was harvested,
leaving but littlo to be carried in 1888.
Ontario, in point of traflic being equal
to nearly half of tho entire Dominion,
a crop failure there is a most serious
matter, affecting as it does passenger
traffic and trado generally. The
deficiency in Ontario was fortunately
more than made good by tho develop*
ment of business along the main Hue
and of tho through traffio to and from
the Pacific coast, but tho through
traffic had to be carried at rates nHolding a comparatively small profit, and
the net earnings for tho year, whilo
$366,650.70 in excess of the year
boforo, were not iu proportion to the
increaso in tho grosB earnings. The
average grain crop of 1888 iu Ontario
resulted in a gratifying improvement in
tho gross earn ingsand profitsof the road
Iu moving tho adoption of the report
tho president said: '-Ibe-* your per
mission to slop for a moment aside
from our custom at theso meetings to
•speak of a mattor which has been a
source uf much annoyance to your directors, and possibly of loss to some of
the alureholders of tho company, mul
in doing so I wish iu tho first placo to
express tho hopo that unfriendly remarks or impertinent comments upon
the affairs of our neighbors will nover
chnmc!crizo tho meeting of shareholders of this company. For tny own
part I would prefer not to refer to
their affairs at nil, but lest continued
silence should bo misconstrued, I feci
thut I should on this occasion say a
few words about tho attitude of tho
Grand Trunk Compnny as indicated by
ita acts in Canada and by tho utterances of its president in England, and
as to the latter especially I feel that I
am moro thnu justified iu what 1 have
t» siy by tha increasing freedom of
remarks concerning this company with
which his ohurehnldcra are entertained
at thoir half yearly meeting, nnd which
clearly indicate that ha lacits that lirst
rcquisi'o >>f good neighborhood—tho
faculty of minding his own business.
Wo hnvo as yuU know scrupulously refrained from interference with nny of
tho projects of tho Grand Trunk Co.,
or with its legislation or financial operations, nnd, in our overy day relations, we have ns scrupulously avoided
rate cutting nnd unfair competition in
any form. But almost overy project
of your company from tho timo of its
ori-anizutioi, up to this day lids met
with the activ-e hostility of the Grand
Trunk Co., at overy turn in tho Dominion and provincial parliaments, in
tho monoy markets and in the public
prosB, It is hardly necessary to go beyond the reports of the half yearly meetings oftheGrandTrunkCo. for proof of
this. At theso meetings the most
mendacious and absurd statements
concerning the C. P. It. seem to be
receired without question, and in*
BiiiuntiouB against tho credit of your
company aro greeted with cheors. At
the last meeting of tho Grand Trunk
shareholders, only a fow days ago,
their president boasted of the successful interference of their offioers in
Canada with some of our recent legislation; unwarranted interference with
legislation relating to our internal affairs, and in no way concerning the
Grand Trunk Railway; and on Ihe
same occasion ho indulged again in his
often repeated hints about impending
disaster to your oompany. Our offence
is that in tho necessary development
of our railway system, in securing that
independence whioh you know to be
absolutely necessary to the success of
tho enterprise, we have come
into competition with tho G. T. R. in
certain districts that wo have beon
obliged to go to and got what tho
G. T, R. would not bring lo ub, but
when your representatives signod tho
contract with tho Dominion govern
ment for the construction and future
working of the Canadian Pacific Railway they bound you without knowing
it, perhaps to an unwritten obligation,
but ono from which thero was no es-
cape,to do practically all that has been
dono since, and to do somethings which
hnvo yet to be done. The interests
of the Grand Trunk wero already
(irmly established in tho direction of
Chicago, and they could not bo reversed and made to fit in with yours.
What is not to thoir interest tho Grand
Trunk Railway people will not do if
they know it. They saw perhaps as soon
ii3 any wliat the building of the C.P R.
implied. They fought against it from
tho very beginiiitig'and with uBourbon,

at the American Institute to-day.
Horso owner broeders from Philadelphia, Rochester, Syracuse, Detroit,

rangod from §1,000 to §2,050.
THE INTERSTATE LAW.
New York, May 8.—Glias. Francis
Adams, president of tho Union Pacific
road, was the first witness to-day before
tho somite cummittoe investigating the
relations of American ami Canadian
roads. While he thought tho interstate law in many cases cruel, he
would like to soo it universally obeyed
and givon a fair trial. He thought the
interstate commission was doing good
work, and that the common railroad
law between Canada and the United
States and the legalized pool would
help the solution of tho present troubles. Mr. Adams said ho was only
nominally president of tho U. P. antl
know Httlo of the practical working.
Thomas L. Green, transportation
agent, of this city, wns tho next wit- '
ness. Ho had no objection to a legal
pool, but wanted merchants to have
voice in fixing rates.

Regarding the visit of Sir John

union of tho British empire was tho
third order in the houso of commons
to-night, but whon the house resumed
at 9 o'clock only 39 members were

adjourned. Tho question has now
littlo chance of discussion this se-Hton.
The motion has been on the paper
without any action being taken upon
it sinco tho opening of the session and
thero seems to bo a widespread feeling, even among the friends of Imperial federation, that publio opinion

A correspondent in au eastern
paper (Chit of courso) brings n serious charge against the Conservative
government at Ottawa. Ho holds
it responsible for the drought and
consequent comparative failure of
crops in Ontario last year, in this
way: The two lines of iron rails of
the O.P.R. convey all the electricity
generated in that province lo cither
ocoan, thus preventing the atmospheric condition's which produce
rain. This is quito good enough
reason for defeating the government
which has caused the evil, observes
a cotemporary, but adds, very pertinently, that to provide a remedy
in full it would he-necessary to tear
up the railway as well, and to obviate this inconvenience it is suggested
that the tails bo tapped at intervals
of fifteen or twenty milea, and the
electricity stored in tanks, to be let
loose on its mission of disturbance
as occasion may require. "Wo do
not intend, however, concludes our
eastern cotemporary, "that this shall
do away with the expediency of defeating the government, which, like
the pig, deserves stoning in any
event." Some opposition organ
literature in this province bears unmistakable marks of being inspired
by the samo happy-go-lucky, irresponsible spirit. They are "agin*
the government" anyhow, and fire a
stone or throw mud occasionally, on
general principles, without having,
or conveying to their readers, nny
very clear notion of the whereinness
of the why or tho whichness of tho
thus of their murky productions.
It has been said, with more truth
than poetry, that you can't make
men sober by act of parliament. It
vould appear to be equally us difficult to get people to plant trees by
similar means. Notwithstanding
that in the prairie province they
have a regularly constituted "Arbor
Day," according to ull accounts little
tree-planting is done, A "Winnipeg
paper says: "Undoubtedly the citizens do nob appear to enthuse over
Arbor Day, They accept the holiday, gracefully, havo a pleasant time
of it, but as a rule they do little or
no tree planting." Speaking of last
Arbor Day, Thursday, May 2nd, the
journal quoted above says: "If yesterday had been made to order it
could not have been better adapted
for Arbor Day than it was. There
was no general observation of the
day, however, in the matter of tree-
planting, Noexamplowasset bythe
government and those iu authority,
so that it is scarcely to be wondered
at that people do not embrace the
day for the purpose for which it was
set aside. A few private citizens
planted trees, more especially those
who own houses with lawns in front,
be they small or great. In the government grounds a small number of
trees wero set out, and quite a few
old ones which were dead replaced.
Most of the fine trees set out around
the grounds some years ago are doing
capitally, Somo of the play-grounds
ubout tho schools were cleared up,
the children engaged in tho work
having the pleasure of seeing a bonfire made of the rubbish. In a few
instances some maple-tree seed was
sown, it being thought that trees
raised from tho seed would do hotter
than planted ones. Quite a number
of citizens embraced the opportunity
of cleuring up their yards and burning the rubbish. In consequence of
this small fires were noticed in all
parts of the city, and had the night
been windy there would havo been
considerable danger from tire. There
was a large turn out of clerks and
others at the different games going
on, and not a few private gamca of
ball were played in different scotions
of the city." The festive Winni-
peggers evidently think that tree-
planting is too much like work to be
indulged in on holidays, and quite
naturally prefer light work and
amusement to sacrificing themselves
for posterity. Some benefactor of
his oountry should now invent a
means of popularizing tree-planting,
by investing it with the dignity of
a ritual, or, hotter still, associating
it in the publio mind with the
jocund accessories of the "bee" or the
pio-nie; and lot what is now deemed
irksome, and is accordingly shirked,
would straightway come to be "all
the rage," and the treeless plain
would becomo a forest—in time,
The fifth annual report of the
commissioners of the New York
state reservation at Niagara, says
•n exchange, contains a very complete statement of what has been
accomplished on the American side in
lhe direction of the restoration of
ihe natural icenery of the falls. Up
to the present the commission has
been able to effect little beyond the
removal of buildings, the strengthening of bridges, the temporary re-
uiring of roadways, and other minor
Snprovementi, but now that the
work of demolition is almost complete, the state legislature is mrnest-
iriUKed to provide funds sufficient
for the OMfffngoutof the important
worki of oonrtroetion and improve
ment which form part of the general
plan of restoration.   Properly constructed roadways are much needed,
especially on  Goat   Island, and for
this purpose, and for grading, filling,
etc., an appropriation of $25,000 is
asked.   In addition to this the commission   requires   §35,000 for the
construction of a hydraulio elevator
to take the place of the old Beddle
stairway at the Cave of the Winds,
and §10,000 for a wall to prevent further erosion on tho southern Bhore
of Goat Island, which is exposed to
tho unbroken force of  the current.
The latter work  is one of  special
importance, as   the   action of  the
water is slowly but constantly reducing  tho size and changing tho
configuration of tho island, the soil
of  which   is  largely  composed of
gravel  and  quicksand.     Another
work mentioned in the report, but
for whioh  no  appropriation is yet
asked, is the construction of a bridge
ucross the river at a point noar the
Whirlpool.   This   work   has   been
rendered   all   tho   more  desirable,
since it was first suggested by the
commissioners, by reason of the extension of tlie Canadian park along
the   bank  of  the   river almost to
Queenston.   The gorge at the point
mentioned  is  about eight hundred
feet  in  width, and   tho banks on
either side are naturally adapted for
a bridge.   This improvement, howovor, can  scarcely be   undertaken
until tho more necessary works have j
been provided for. Tho report shows
that  the  commissioners expended
last year §20,011 and received $29,-
366, of which §6,52-1 wus earned by
the inclined railway and $20,000
was   tho state grant.   Tho number
of visitors  during tho year is esti-
uted nt 300,000, of whom 171,600
were  excursionists, mnny of them
from Canada.   The largest number
of excursionists who arrived in one
day was 6,720.   The commissioners
complain bitterly of the insufficiency
of  the  support  received by them
from   the  legislature,   which, they
say, has forced them to maintain an
inactivity which is neither agreeable
to them nor creditable to the state,
To the Canadian park they pay the
following compliment:  "No visitor
to Niagara will fail either to recognize the attraotivenessor admire the
beauty of the Queen Victoria Park,
with  its  smooth   lawns, well-kept
roads, and   charming views of  the
Horseshoe and American .Falls. The
people of Canada may well be congratulated   upon  the acquisition of
so extensive a territory for a public
park."   The report of tho Canadian
commissioners  for  the year ended
December 31st last is a satisfactory
one so far as it relates to tho works
of improvement nnd the number of
visitors.   Nearly §26,000 was  expended upon maintenance and improvements  during   tho   year, nnd
from the date of the formal opening
of the park on May 24th last to the
end of  tho year the visitors numbered   213,874, or   an   average of
nearly   1,000 a  day.   The largest
number  of   visitors  in   any   oue
day was   4,272  on  the' 22nd  of
August.    The   commissioners  express great astonishment and  regret, however, at the smallness of
the receipts from tolls, which forthe
seven months amounted to only $4,-
727.   These tolls are levied for the
use of the hydraulic elevator and tho
island bridges, and tho expectation
of the commissioners was that tbey
would prove a source of considerable
revenue.   That they havo not done
so is attributed partly to ignorance
on the part of  the public  of  the
beauties of the points of interest at
which the charges in question are
made, and partly to the hostility of
the hackmen, who are accused of diverting travel from these principal
sources of income in order to revenge
themselves for the loss of the commissions   which they formerly received,   In  order to remedy this
stato of affairs handsome descriptive
"folders" are now distributed to all
visitors immediately upon their en
trance into the park, and it is intimated  that step3 tuny bo taken to
pat a stop to the misrepresentations
of the hackmen.

Largo Vessels That Travel Hundred,-, Of
j       Milos ln Order to Catch the Scaly
Creatures—The Food of the Colonists—A Great Industry.
( For halibut, haddock and tbe toothsome
. cod, tho banks, hundreds of miles out to sea,
1 aro sought by the vessels of from ninety to
twice tbat many tons burden, whioh spend
thore as many months as are necessary to
secure a load or " fare," as it Ib technically
called. The system of angling pursued by
IboBo "pot-hunters" would scarcely obtain
tho approval of lovers of sport, says tbo
j Chicago News. Lines a mile or so in length,
■ with hooks attached at six feet intervals are
/ anchored in tho shallows over tho banks,
. with buoys of wood or cork to mark them.
'j These ''trawls"—for so they ore desig-
!f nated—are set at night, and in tho morning,
every hook freshly baited with a scrap of
II iii, and twico in twenty-four hours tbey
avo hauled np, hand over hand, by men in
dorlos, who detach such victims as aro
caught, and renew the freo lunch offered to
tbo scalv rounders of tho ocean. As fast as
thoy aro taken, tho cod or halibut aro dried
in the sun and salted down in the vessel's
holds, whonco tho former aro shoveled out
many weeks later, in tho leather-like condition one buys them in tho corner grocery.
Tlio fresh halibut and cod ono buys in the
market are caught near the shore by
smacks, which make two trips a week
to tho less distant grounds. In this
way aro taken nearly all the haddock,which
aro sold unsalted for the most part, owing
to the comparatively small number found.
Halibut is by far tho most profitable game
for tho fisherman, A fair-sized ono at 5
':- conts a pound is worth several dollars, and
[ it is not unusual to find them weighing threo
, hundred weight a piece. Buch big follows,
' at §10 or $15 each, Boon make up a satisfacto-
;. ry cargo. But, as has been said, tho "rig"
l for catching them is more expensive. Lines
as big as your little finger are required to
hold tbem, and other tackle of proportionate
strength and size. A simplo cod rig costs
$25 por man for each of the dozon or so pf
stout sailor boys who make up the orew of
n first-class sea-going fishing boat. The arrangement usually made is, that the skipper who employs the men pays all tho expenses of avoyngo from tho sum ho receives
for his cargo. One-fifth of what remains
" goes to tho boat," or, In other words, is
the captain's share. The balance Is divided
equally among tho crew, each of whom is
thus mode a partner in tho venture—an
arrangement woll calculated to stimulate
activity in the pursuit of edibles that swim.
And this is whero the swiftness of the vessel is useful, -n chasing the schools and in
making trips out and homo again as short as
may be. A great pest ot tho deep-sea fishermen Is tho ground-shark, but now and
tthen ono is caught as big as a dory—say,
twelve feet long—and Its liver will fill
twelve buckets, at 61.60 a bucket, for oil
Even the cheeks and tongues of the cod,
which in old times wero thrown away, are
now turned into money. Many peoplo like
Vto eat them fried, and ono dealer told tho
writer that he himself had sold $30,000
worth of them in tho last eight years. The
entrails of all tho fish are disposed of for
fertilizing purposes.
The harvesting of the scaly crop each
year Is an industry of gigantic proportions,
employing tho services of many thousand
able seamen and a multitude of vessels,
both big and small. Theso vessels aro tho
finest ot their kind to be found anywhere,
not a fowof thom vicing iii tho expensive*
ness of tholr construction and the elaboi
ness of their equipment with first-class
yachts. Speed, noxt to safety, is the chief
dislderatum in the modern fishing-boat, and
oven Mr. Burgess, the celebrated designer
of pleasure craft that beat tho world, has
not disdained to build sloops and schooners
which contend with frantic emulation from
season to season for tho proud distinction
of'- high-lino of tho fleet."
The fishing-grounds oft tho New England
Bboresaro tho most valuable known. To
tho interest felt by rival nations in securing possession of them history mainly attributes the colonization of North America.
The reports of early explorers touching the
wealth of the Western seas-coming at a
period when Roman Catbolio Europe consumed nn incalculable amount of fish in
times of religious fasting—gave riso to the
,-inost intense excitement and set on foot
-business speculations which wero destined,
,jn the courso of yoars, to conjure up tho
fispeotor of grim-vlsaged war. For two cent-
'uriesthe French and English fought over
[tho profitable waters, whioh even at the
present day are a subject of international
'dispute. Tho early colonists earned their
bread aud butter chiefly with hook and lino,
, and in thoso days the salary of tho minis-
'ter, tho debt duo the merchant, and in fact
'most pecuniary obligations, wero paid in
Ibe staple commodity, fish. And in this
ipresent year ot grace, 1888, tho population
along the North Atlantic shore subsist to a
'great extent on a fish diet, and is supported
mainly by the sale of tho groat ocean's finny inhabitants, fresh and Baited.
. Of 160,000,000 pounds of fish captured an uu-
.'ally the bulk consists of cod, haddock and
^halibut. On the great "banks" or shallowB,
<whioh extend for hundrods of miles In the
midst of the deep ocean, far from land,
'theso ogers of the sea gather by myriads in
;■ *.ho spring time, coming up from fathomless
waters, whither they have retreated to ea-
icape the winter's cold, to feast upon the
countless shoals of Braallor try that are
bred for the sole purpose, seemingly, of
providing food for tholr bigger cousins. As
:tho warm weather approaches the herring,
'olewives and other such fashionable fishes,
arrive from tho southern watering places,
.where thoy have been spending tho cold
i months, so unendurable, you know, in this
abominable climate. Those slippery cus-
' tomers, tho eels, too, como wriggling down
.from tbe little creeks and estuaries whero
thoy have found comfortable beds of nice
, warm mud to hibernate In. In brief, It is
''tho joyous season in the briny depth as well
as on the dry earth.
As a rule a vessel goes on a fishing expedition with some particular sort of prey in
view. A "cod" rig will also servo for haddock, but for halibut stronger tackle and
bigger hooks aro neoded, while mackerel
and herring must be taken in nets. Thus it
is that boats usually sail from port equipped
suitably for capturing a single kind offish,
| to tho netting or hooking of which eachcratt
devotes its exclusive attention.
HUGE 8AND AUGERS.
Description or a Curious Wind Phenomenon
or the Plains.
11A curious phenomenon," Bald Prof. F. B.
Clarke, to a Ban Francisco Examiner reporter, "is sometimes ooserved on wide
plains where the atmosphere is hotand dry.
It is the forming of miniature cyclones, or
rotary storms, which, when occurring on a
grand scale, as they do in tho Western
States, are known as tornadoos.
"Whon tbe Union Paeiflo railway was
being constructed tho workmen hod frequent opportunities of witnessing tbe formation and progress of such whirlwinds,
which, on account of tho peculiar action
thoy bad on dry soil, wero called 'sand
augers/ They were especially frequent In
Lodge Polo Creek Valley, through whioh
tho railway, leaving tho Platto rivor, runs
northerly to near tho base of the Black
Hills. This valley Is quite narrow-averaging about a mile In width, and is bounded
I on either Bide by a range ef low, uneven
hills.
"Tho first Indication of the approach ot
one of thoso * sand augers1 would be tho
formation, here and there ln tho valley, of
'i littlo whirligigs of dusty wind, picking up
bits of straw, papor and other unconsidered
trifles, sometimes waltzing into camp and
flirting with tho canvas tents or scattering
tho ombers and ashes of outdoor cooking-
places.
"Theso baby cyclones would increase in
number quite rapidly, and then be whisked
away by strong currents of air, coming
from no ono know where, but alt drawing
across tho valley towards tho eastern range
of hills, over which would then bo seen advancing a funnel-shaped cloud, liko that
seen ovor water-spouts forming at sea.
"From the under surface of this low-
lying cloud a swaying tongue of load-colored vapor wonld prolong itself toward tho
earth, from which, to meet it, would riso a
cloud of dirt and sand. This earth-cloud
would rlao higher and higher, with a whirling motion becoming more compact all tho
while, until tho blue-block vapor and tbe
brown mass from below would unite above,
and tbe completed, swiftly - whirling
columns commence slowly down from the
hills on its way across the valley.
" Whilo its forward progress was usually
slow, tho rotary motion about its vertical
axis would be very rapid; and so dense
would bo tho mass of sand gathered up by
it that, when tho column touched tho earth,
it would scoop out a shallow channel like
tho dry bed of a small stream. Hence, its
namo of sand auger.
"The diameter of these augers seldom exceeded 15 or 20 feet at tho ground, but their
bulk increased with their height, until they
wore merged Into tho broad surface of tbo
illicit, murkey vapor from tho cloud above,
from whicli electric fioshes frequently played-
When this occurred large hailstones would
bo formed, which would be thrown, by centrifugal force, apparently, out from tho revolving storm. They, would bo found to be,
almost invariably, in tbe shopo of flat discs
sometimes threo inches In diameter and an
Inch thick, and made up of layers of ico
and Band.
"OnoBUch 'sand-auger' poBBed near an
engineer's camp whoro I was at work, and
carried off a tont or two. It then grazed tho
edge of a corral near by cutting away one
anglo of an adobo wall, and, sweeping by
the houso itself, left every pane of glass in
tho ono window as neatly ground as it done
by a sand-blast machine.
"Passing on, the tents the 'auger' was
carrying off becamo entangled in tho telegraph wires running through thevalloy,and
after dragging down two poles tbe cyclono
collapsed, leaving beneath, when it broke
up, a mound made up of sand, bits of adobo,
some old boots, a sprinkling of empty tins,
part of a bale of hay and a dog-eared pokor-
dock of cards. Tho latter woro afterward
carefully gathered up by their owner, a
genius called Slim Jim, who always deplored the fact that the recovered pock was
imperfect, there being but four aces left in
it by the Band-auger."
CHEWING  DECREASING.
Reasons Why Dealers Do Mot SeU as Much
"Plug" as Formerly.
When the older Charles Dickens was in
this country en his first visit thoro was no
one of the American habits which called
forth from tho great novelist moro condemnation than the ono of chewing tobacco,
says tho NowYork Press. But tunes change,
and National as well as personal habits
change with them—America is no longor a
nation of tobacco ohewers, and that manner
of using tobacco Is gradually, but surely,
passing away.
Evory tobacconist recognizes tho great
change that is taking placo in what ln ono
sense may bo termed the publio taste. A
tobacco dealer, whose trado is not almost
exclusively among Bailors, says that he does
not soil ono-half as much Chewing tobacco
to-day as ho did ton years ago, and uot more
than one-third as much as twenty yoars
ago. Bold ono of thom a few days ago:
"Tho falling off in tho uso of chewing tobacco is a great deal moro apparent I
the East than it is In the South and
but it is notlceablo everywhere. One causo
for tho decadence of tho habit is undoubtedly due to tbo growth of public opinion that
It Is an uncleanly habit. It Ib hard also for
a man addicted to tho habit to keep from
showing evidences of It on his clothes and
person.
" But the principal causes are right hore.
Thero is a great deal moro dyspepsia and
stomach troublo in the country now than
thero used to bo, and no person with a weak
stomach cau chew tobacco. Tho action of
tho tobacco juice, which trickles down the
throat of a chowor, is to paralyze the action
of tho stomach, It will accomplish that
long boforo tobacco smoko will loavo nny
perceptlblo effect upon tho lungs. Thon,
again, the cigarette has dono a great deal
to put nn ond to tho chewing habit.
"Tho growth of tho cigarette practice iu
this country is and has been phouomenal.
Tho coii-sumption ot cigarettes has multiplied many times during the last fifteen
years,' About seven out of overy ten boys
now growing up smoko cigarettes. Aftor a
boy has smoked cigarettes for a few years
ho has not only no taste for tobacco in any
othor form, but ho has no Btomuch or constitution left to stand chewing tobacco.
"Tho Bufferings which an inveterate tobacco chowor endurcB whon ho first deprives himsolf ot his accustomed 'weed'
aro popularly supposed to be almost intolerable. Some ex-ohowcrs Bay tboy aro,
whilo others maintain that thoy arc nothing1
which a resolute will and clear bend can
not oaslly master. All agroe, howover, that
thoy havo to uso somo substitute at first,
be it only a match or a wooden toothpick."
SAM GODDARD'S  WOOING.
He Advertised for a Wife and Was Overwhelmed by Answers.
Bam Goddard advortlsed for a wifo in a
Georgia paper two years ago, Bays tbe Atlanta (Go.) Journal. Bam Is a countryman
who boars a striking resemblance te tho
undo of his country, though he Is uot so
well dressed. His advertisement was about
as follows :
'Wanted-AWIfe.
'I want a good, affectionate wife, who
will bo a mothor to my littlo ohildren. Sho
must be a good housekeeper and well disposed. I prefer that she bo light-complected, but no red-headed woman need
apply. I have a home with four ehildron,
two hundred bushels of corn and fifty bush*
els of sweet potatoes. I catch 'possums
enough to cook with tho sweot potatoes."
This advertisement was published several
time in Home, and was copied all ovor tho
country and in several foreign papers.
Tho replies began to como in tbe second
day from different parts of tho Stato, thon
from adjoining States, aud finally from
evory part of tho Union. After a month or
so letters bogan to como from otber countries. A number came from England and
Scotland, ono or two from Germany and
ono from New Zealand. Thero woro ovor
one thousand letters ln all. At flrst Goddard was blitho and joyful. His spirits roso
and bubbled ovor in all sorts of ingenious
demonstration. Thore wero locks of hair,
miniature bouquets nud onco in a whilo a
photograph. The happy rustic exhibited
thoso trophies with undisguised satisfaction, and all wont merrily with him thon.
Ho was tbo most courted man lu America.
By and by thoro camo a great reaction.
The great deeps of his heart were broken
up as his ponderous and uncouth affections
were gradually dissipated nmong a legion
of admirers. Ho becamo .despondent and
finally, when tho foreign letters began te
come in with twcnty-ilvo cents extra postage on every other one, ho was sick at
heart. The subject seemed to have gathered terrors with its numbers,-and tho
reality of cno thousand sweethearts was
far more-terriblo than tho rosy anticipation
that had preceded it. After two yoars of
deliberation Bam put all those loves aside
and took unto himsolf a wifo of his homo acquaintance. This a truo story, and Sum
Goddard now livos happily near Rome.
Uaii|[ing ln Africa,
Cape advices received at Plymouth glvo
horrible details of tho execution of four
Basutos In tho Orange Fi-jo State. Tlio
sheriff's nomlneo performed his work so
expeditiously that when tho district surgeon examined tho body of tho last victim
and intimated aftor tho mau hod beon limiting six minutes that ho could feel no moro
pulsation the hangman immediately cut the
rope and tho body fell on tho ground. When
it was taken to tho burial placo and was
about to bo thrown into a holo with the
others peoplo noticed with horror that tho
unfortunate man wus not doud. Tho body
was taken back to tbo place of execution
and again hung up. When tho body hud
boon hanging upwards of ton minutes for
tho second .time, the executfoncor hung on
to tho legs of tho man to bo certain that life
was extinct,

The Sew lEc^t-lllUmi-i.
There waa conaiderablo excitement
yesterday nu Front street among a
number uf fishermen who wero unable
to obtain licenses tu fish fur salmom as
in previous yours. The., fishermen
seemed tu be under tho impression
that they wero forced to Buffer a great
hardship in being deprived of thoir
licenses, and a representative of Thb
Columbian interviewed Mr. Thomas
Mowat, inspector of fisheries, to ascertain the exact state of affairs. Mr.
Mowat willingly gave tho desired information. Tho number of fishing
boats to bo allowed oh the river was
fixed by the department at U50, instead of 598 bonta last yonr. The
licenses were ordered by tho government tu bo distributed among tho
canneries. Tho Frnscr River Canners
Association forwarded a resolution to
the government asking that 100 extra
licenses be granted for outside flatter*
men. Tho request waa nccedod to
by tho department, making tho
total number of boats permissible
on tho rivor four hundred and fifty.
Out of this extra 100 licenses, 44 were
issued before tho limit w.ib put ou,
thus loaving only 50 to be distributed.
Of the 44 issued, somo fishermen got
moro licenses than thoy would under
tho present order of things, whilo
othera would not havo been able to obtain a license at nil, The fish freezers
obtained 12 licenses, against 27 laat
year, out of tho 5G remaining, leaving
44, which tho government ordered to
bu issued to resident Indians of the
Fraacr river who have had licenses iu
previous years, Thia action uf the
government was taken on the ground
that the Indiana had the lirat right,
aro solf-austaining, cost the government nothing and should bu allowed
means of support. Those Indian
licensee- will number 37, leaving 7
licenses to bo issued to thoso who have
the next first right. All outsido
Indians nro debarred Iho right of obtaining licenses, ps they hnvo no particular right to fish on the Fraser. Mr.
Mowat does not think thnt more Mian
Ul buna fide whito fishermen will be
left out under the present arrangements, and these, he Euy?, will
bo able to obtain work from any of tho
canneries. Tho government gavo tbe
cnuuerymcu all they asked for, and tliu
wholo dissatisfaction among the fishermen has bed) caused by the ia-.nu of
the first 44 licenses. Thoro is no limit
to the number of bouts on any river in
tho provinco excopt the Fraser, and
this limit wns brought about in the
first place by tho British Columbia
Board of Trade, which represented to
tho government that tho river was boing over-fished.

An incident occurred on the Sardonyx juat aftor Btriking a rock off
Aberdeen, Skeena river, n couple of
weeks ago, whioh illustrates tho want
of proper knowledge of aomo peoplo
respecting tho fastening of life-preservers on their bodies. A woll-known
ex-politioian, who was a pnsBongur at
tho time, became unduly alarmed at
the vessel's action after striking, and
seizing a life preserver asked the question, "How is it to bo fastened on?"
A practical joker near bv instructed
the ex -politician to fasten it to his leg-,
We aro told by un oye witness that
this experienced prospector actually
did as directed, Luckily thero wns no

term of tho assizes.
Michael.Hanley, found guilty of uttering counterfeit bank notes, sentenced to 5 yeara in the penitentiary.

In tho case of J. R. McMeill, found

him in Mftdoo, Ontario, where I waa a
merchant; ho waa well thought of
thore, and ho wns counted im honorable straightforward youug man, of
good reputation and credit; I know
Mr. A. F. Wood and Mr. Cross, of
Mailoc, and would recognize their sig-
n at ure. (A letter was bore produced
signed by these gentlemen, highly recommending McNeill.)
Robert'King, sworn said: I have
known prisoner for 10 years; he has
always bom a good character and I
never heard a word against him; I
would-trust him with thousands of dollars.
J. Kivk, sworn said: I have known
McNeill for 10 yeara; he was rcspoctod
by young and old of every denomination; I came to this country with him
3 years ago; wo went to Metphosin
nnd gut work together; remainod there
2 years; afterwards went into hotel
keeping together nt Victoria.
Simeon Huff, sworn said: 1 have
known prisoner 13 years; he was generally respected.
MoKinnon testified ho had known
McNeill for 10 yeara and nover hoard
anything against him.
Mr. Atkinson called his lordship's
attention to a law which was enacted
during the last session of parliament,
which gives the presiding judgo the
power to release on probation persons
convicted of fir.it offences, and asked
his lordship to consider tho principle
involved ih this act in giving his decision in tho present case.
His lordship said ho would dofer
sentence until tho 10th inst.
The court tbou adjourned.
