Saya a Washington correspondent:
"No minister sent to the United
Statea by Great Britain haB ever
been eo untrammelled by the dignity
and power of Iub place as Sir Julian
Paunceforte. He iB easy to approach and has a friendly, cordial
manner that is very inviting. Ho
tukea lifo easily and seems to want
everybody to do likewise. Ho goes
out into the park near the Legation
buildings and laughs and chats with
tho children who there congregate
iu tha evening. He saunters nonchalantly down the street or out iu
the country roads and lets diplomacy
go on u holiday whenever it wishes
to do so."
It is aaid that tbe Shah on mak*
his lirst journey in England asked
the use of the button whioh moved

the purposo of stopping the train,
Thereupon his majesty rose and
pulled it sharply with the result
that would have rendered any ordinary mortal subject to penalty or imprisonment. On being asked why
he wished to stop the train, the
Shah said he was tired and desired
to go to sleep, and it waa some time
before he could be made to understand that tho traffio of the South-
Eastern Railway must not be
brought to a standstill for an hour

Divorce was easy under the old
Irish laws, says a writer in the July
Century, and the wifo took baok
with her the "tindsora," or marriage
portion given by her parents, ns well
as tho "coibche," or reward for her
virginity, received from her husband.
Hero nre some of the reasons which
might be alleged by a quick-tempered or 11 frail woman as a cause for
separation : Bofusat of her rights in
domestic matters, misconduct of her
husband with other women, abandonment, a publio charge of infidelity,
ridicule from her husband, a mark
on her person showing maltreatment.
If a love-potion had been administered, it might be cited as a cause
for leaving tho man who gavo it.
In fine, divorco in heathen Ireland
was so easy, and the laws wero so
favorable to tho weakor sex, that
tho man who "caught a Tartar"
must havo had every chance of continuing to regret it.
Says an American exchange:
Mrs, Hayes always declared that a
fiorfeotly' adequate substitute for
iquor whon needed as a stiniulnnt
could bo found in hot milk, and
aftor any cold or wetting she gavo
this iu plaeo of the wine or whiskey
whioh others would have considered
necessary. This is, by tho way, a
custom of Mrs. Cleveland's also,
who discovered after the fatigues of
the many long and wearisoino receptions she was obliged to go
through, standing for hours on her
feet and shaking hands with hundreds of peoplo, that nothing would
restore her so quickly as a cupful of
boiling milk brought to her by hor
maid, and which sbe drank in littlo
sips as hot as It possibly could be
takon. Tho Washington girls
caught the idea from her, and finding how quickly it helped them
after a hard day of calls and social
duties, they began to substitute it
for the varions malt preparations
thoy lud beon in the habit of taking,
or tho hot wino and wator whioh
their maids, usually administered
when thoy came in too tired out to
dress for thoir next engagemout.

OTTAWA NOTES,
Ottawa, Aug. 0.—■ A private despatch from Halifax snys thu American
sohooner Vidotto, seized nt Guyaboro,
N. S., for violating tho customs laws,
was subsequently released, as tho
action was too hasty.
Tho utmost satisfaction is expressed
in eastern Canada at tho escape of the
Blaek Diamond. This feeling is shared by all tho government ofticuds here.
Nobody doubts the genuineness of tho
seizure. The good fortune of the
Blaok Diamond is not regarded as like-'
k to complicate matters.     Hon.  Mr.
Bowe	
Hon
Well, minister of customs, wired
Victoria last night for particulars. No
official action haB been taken thus far.
The members of the government atate
that they are ignorant of tho alleged
departure of the remainder of the
British squadron for the Behring Sea.
The Free Press declares the seizure a
farce, proving that the Americans are
disposed to back down.
WANTED TO SHOOT BURKE.
Fakgo, Aug. 5.—When the train
bearing Martin Burke arrived at Grafton, 300 men, mostly Irishmen, endeavored to gain admittance to whoro
Burko wus chained to the floor and
handcuffed to two officers. "Dr.
Cronin," aaid one uf thu men, "was a
cousin of mine, and I would avenge I
hia death if I could got a chanco." i
Hu drew a revolver, but before he
could firo it ho was hustled away by
Lieut. Ross. Burke heard the man's
threats and remarked*. ''I might as
well be shot in Dakota as hanged in
Chicago."
BURKE IN CIIAROE.
Chicago, Aug! 5.—Martin Burke
waa dropped from the St. Paul train
about six blocka from tlio depot tonight aud driven to tho Harrison
street station and placed in a ceil.
At lhe depot was a sqund of polico*
men, waiting ostensibly, to escort
Burke from the depot, but really to
net as a decoy fur reporters. Theru
wero very few people about tho police
station and no one save the police
authorities knew of Burke's arrival
until ho had been safely placed behind
the bars.
FOOLISH   INDIANS.
Standing Rock, Dak,, Aug 4.—
Muoh to the surprise of all at the
agenoy, John Grass, Mad Bear, Big
Head and their bands to-day signed
the treaty and now 600 names are all
that are necessary for the opening
of the reservation. There waa a wild
scene when Sitting Bull and his band
rode up in jn war costume and attempted to drive the friendly Indiana
from tho council, but he waB soon suppressed, and the Indiana under the
three chiefs above named, followed
them in signing. Four hundred signatures were secured yesterday, and
the commissioners are elated over the
propeat of success. Chief Gall is still
hesitating, but it is believed ho will
consent in a few daya. There is uow
every prospect of success. It is now
reasonably safe to predict that 11,000, -
000 acres of land will be opened for
settlement.

(Before T. C. Atkinson, P.M.)
Jack, a Fort Rupert Indian, charged

bottle of whisky by a Chinaman, and
the liquor had anon a nasty effect on
him that he became quarrelsome. Con*

Jack to the lockup, but he resisted
and a struggle ensued, which resulted
in the Indian getting muoh the worst
of tho combat and in hts final submission to the law. Fined five dollars and
costs.

drunk and incapable, pleaded guilty
and was finod §2.50 and coats.
Hugh Heney, another drunk and

suffered tho same fine.
More Blcli Qnnrt*-,
Encouraging reports are hoard from
the Texada gold miues, more especially
from the now far-famed "Nutcracker,"
which is holding its own in point of
richness with any mine yet discovered.
Wo wero permitted by Mr. Lewie Griffiths to look at some magnificent specimens which ho brought down from that
mine yesterday, and without exaggeration it may be said that some of it
literally shines with specks of gold, no
glnss being necessary to detect the
particles. Tho shaft is sunk about 11
feet and looks well all the way down,
the ledge holding its own in a most
promising manner. Mr. Griffiths also
brought down nbout 100 pounds of de*
composed quartz which he, iu company
with others interested, will wash out
to-day. Gold can be plainly seen with
tho naked eye, and tho pulverized
ruck ahould pan out well.—Courier.

MR. YATES' CABLE.
London, Aug, G.—The queen's

waa adviaud under these circumatancea
that the naval review would tax her
strength too much. Her majesty was

ahe could not dispense with salutes as
she did nt the jubilee miv.il review.
It is said on the best authority that it

ths German Emperor should come to
London. Tho family relations are
more easy at present and ho nud the

quite friendly. Still the family patty
at Osborne can hardly be a very happy
ono apart from tho feeling of soreness
which ronklcH in the minds of tho
qtiocn nnd princuaa to his conduct to
tho Empress Frederick. The emperor
did not liko Princess Beatrice's marriage to Prince Henry of Battenburg,
regarding it as Germans do an a mesalliance. Tho Prince and Princess
Christian are at Osborne, and will, no
doubt, help to mnke matters easy, its
the emperor nnd empress nre very
fond of Princo Christian. Nonr tho

Perhaps wo don't know what *wo
arc talking about, hut it striken us
very forcibly that things are making
for  ft grand fizzle, instead of tho
grand success so ofton invoked in
these column'*, in tho mutter of the
provincial exhibition which couios
off in this city tho month nfter next.
Leas  than  nine weeks will   now
elnpse   ore the dntc for the show
comes round, and whut preparations
have been made 1 Wo don't suppose
it is anybody's business to answer
this question but Echo's, and thnt
sarcastic sprite would only mockingly repent tho interrogatory.    So wo
supposo we'll liavo to do the best
we can ourselves, and the easiest
way to get at it is to recount what
has  not   been  done.   In tho lirst
placo, then, tho prize lists have not
been   issued   yet, something whicli
should havo been done months ngo.
This-is nobody's fault, of course, but
then it's unfortunate, and the worst
of  it is, tho same -thing seems to
happen every year. The "cow's tail"
would seem to bo the insignia of all
the provincial exhibition promoter.-*
in  British Columbia, and  festina
lente the religiously observed motto,
In   strict keeping with this spirit
and policy, no posters hnvo yet beon
printed and distributed throughout
. tho country, and the exhibition has
not yet beon advortised in ovon tho
provincial papers.   Furthor still in
the sume line of masterly inactivity,
not   ix  step has been takon by our
citizens, or whosesoever business it
is, towards preparing a program mo
of sports and games for the occasion.
This   is   something that should bn
done   without  delay, nnd the pro-
gramme advertised, if it is expected
to attract peoplo in uny numbers to
the city on tho days of  the  fair.
Cheap transfer arrangements should
also be made, if possible, and exhibitors apprized of all details of interest to them by poster or advertisement.   Very littlo timo now remains in which to arrange for anything like a decent -show, and it is
to be hoped that it may bo well improved.   In the matter of preparing
the grounds and orectlng tho necessary buildings, the greatest expedition will   also   have to be used, as
this work is also behind-hand, but
it   is difficult  hore ns well to hnd
anybody answerable for tho delay.
Howovor, by pushing matters vigorously from this out, we believe tho
oxhibitiou buildings, pens, etc., nnd
fenoea required, can be completed in
time, and tho grounds got in some
kind of shape, so that tho show may
yet preserved from fizzledoin, if there
is a gonerul "looking nlivo" nil along
tho line, which might with advantage extend to the somewhat lethargic subscribers of the "Exhibition
Fund."
route will bo over 100 miles northward   of  any trans-Atlantic cable
now laid, and tho depth of the ocoan
will be  considerably less*  it will
thus be absolutely free from all risks
during tho repairs of othor cables
and can be more readily raised when
required.   Tho company have only
to provido tho main cable or cables,
of   not   exceeding   1,000 miles in
length,   the    connection   eastward
being with the .Imperial governmeft
postollicn    telegraph   service,   and
westward with the Canadian government telegraph service at Greenly
Island in tho Straits of Hollo Isle.
Hence tho company will bo nt no
outlay of capital for terminal cables,
and  no pooling or other pressuro is
practicable.   Tho capital expenditure of the compnny will uot exceed
61,600,000, ono   of  the  principal
onblo manufacturing companies in
London having tendered to provide,
lay mid   guarantee  a cable* of  tho
most approved type for the sum of
!jU,500,000, whieh, compared with
ovon  the lowest figure given abovo
ns the cost of  ono of  the existing
cables, will bo found very low.   The
annual maintenance charges for tho
Canada Atlantic will also bo very
moderato, it is stated, as compared
with thoso of other cnblo companies.
The British admiralty chart is said
to show that tho cable approaches
to Greenly Inland uro quito as safo
(from the grounding of icebergs) us
to nny other point on tho const of
North America.   As to tlio business
prospects for tho proposed new lino,
it is stated that tho present number
of trans- Atlantic despatches relating
to Oanadian businef-s alone average
SOO por dny, and are rapidly increasing; and should the proposed Jnpnn-
ese, China   and Australian transpacific cables bo laid, the business,
it  is  naturally expected, will   be
almost  infinitely added to,    It is
shown thnt tho present cable companies nre enabled to pay good dividends, nnd  the obvious conclusion
is that the Canada Atlantic cable,
with all its advantages, including
compnrnti veiy light capital expenditure nnd  maintenance charges, will
bc   ablo to do still better.   There
can bo no doubt that the inference
is warranted, and every Canadian
will be glnd, and will huvo reason
evon   to bo proud, whon theso two
projected cables—the Canada Atlantic, and tho Canada, Japaneso and
Australian trans-Pacific—arenctunlly
completed, thus knitting tho various
great component parts of tho "empire upon whicli the sun never sets"
moro closely together with a vnst,
pulsing, electric nerve.   This happy
consummation   is   plainly   only   a
question of time, and of a comparatively short timo, too.

The proposed now trans-Atlantic
cable of the Canada Atlantic Company, whioh it is fairly certain will
bo laid within reasonable time, will
constitute tho eleventh electrio cable
connecting tho two hemispheres
over the bed of tho Atlantic. The
ten lines at present in existence are
the following: The Anglo-American Company's cables, four in number, threo touching at about tho
samo points on Ireland and Newfoundland respectively, and the
other joining France and Massachusetts via St. Pierre; tho Direct
United States Company's cables,
from Ireland to Nova Scotia; tho
Western Union company's cable,
numbering two, from Nova Scotia
to England, via Ireland; the Commercial Company's cables, alao two,
connojting Irelnnd nnd Nova Snotin;
and tliG cnblo of tho Compagnio
Froncaiso, from France to Massachusetts, by way of St. Pierre nnd Capo
Breton. Tlio first laid of all theso
cablos wns ono of tho Anglo-American Company's, from Franco to St.
Pierre and Massachusetts, in 18G9,
and the most recent, tho socond
cable of the Commercial Company's,
connecting Ireland and Nova Scotia,
thence to Massachusetts, laid in
1885. The totnl length of tho
shortest of tho ten lines enumerated
above is 2,174 milos, and of the
longest 3,407. The least cost for a
single cable is given as 81,000,000,
and tho greatest as $8,750,000. Tho
cables mentioned all lie on tho bed
of the ocean within a compass of
about two hundred miles, some of
the lines run very closo together,
and nt several points thu different
cables cross each other, In repairing operations, which are quito frequent, the inconvenienco und additional cost of maintenance thus
necessitated need only be hinted at.
Indeed, it ia stated, if tho truo history of repairing expeditions, both
in deep and moderato soundings wns
made public, thu facts would bo not
a little startling to shareholders. It

[ Being tbe Thrilling Adventure of
Two Baoholors in Iudla.
InontorinRthodrawlng-room thero wero
two doors; this must bo bomo in mind-
Tho houso itsolf was old-fashioned, a
largo and many-Rablod ono, Btanding
quito alouo and solitary in a Bpacious
garden; all tho wlminwA had heen closed
ami the jalousies shut, nud secured
from tho outside; tho tatty-grass bliuds on
tho piazza hod houn rolled up and put away
till another blazing morning called for their
refreshing shade.
Tho locality was nenr that part of tho
delta called the Sundcrbunds, through which
tlm Uangea expands its branches as it approaches the sea—a labyrinth of crooks and
rivers, of jungle and stagnant water, Tho
night waB perfectly lino, but moonless;
thero was a heavy dew rapidly falling, like
misty rain, which in hob countries ia ft perfectly natural occuri-once.
lwentintothodrawing-roombywhotmay
bo called tbo back doo r, as it led Into the back
drawing-room, and smaller one of the two;
the other, a far largur apartment, communicated with this ouo by great folding doors
of gold and white. Tho back drawing room
was very full of furniture, rather inconveniently bo. Ab I was carrying an armful of books, and In my disengaged hand a
bull's-eye lantern, I proceeded with .tolerable security, though slowly, but then of
course I know tho room, and could havo
gone to my destination in the dark. What
struck me as both curious and irritative
was tho fancy that tho room seemed moro
impeded than ever with thofurnituro, dark,
old-fnBhioned vosowood furnituro, that had
been mado to match the grand piano. Tho
various articles looked as if they had beon
dragged about tlio room. Possibly tho
M darkness above and around uio helped tlio
Illusion; anyway they had tho appearance
of having been gradually spread toward
the contor oftho room, round a heavy
and solid tablo. It was this tablo that I
wished to go to. 1 walked very slowly,
partly becauso I did not wish to spill the
books that I'd spent the last hour in collecting, and partly because ot an unaccountably horrible feeling that had coiho over mo.
This part of tho bouse was quite silent; in*
-ieed It was often so of an ovening. My
brother had passed mo on his way up-
■-.t ni rs, having bfonullday at Madrepore, nnd
no doubt being tired had gono to bed. There
were vory low stairs at au, as the house
was practically a one-storied one, rambling
nud full of angles, having beon built and
added to at various times; hero and there
littlo staircases streamed out leading to
long passages and unexpected cupboards;
tho back drawing-room door itself opened
from a side flight ol five stall's. As
I bad encountered tWO snniU chairs
and an overturned muslo stand, I
stood still for a second, looking for a
'clear passage and thoreby holding
the lantern high and well in front of mo;
as I paused amid the complete silence that
reigned an immense tiger slowly crossed
the path of light, turning on mo two burning yellow eyes, gleaming like vivid topazes. I stood there iu stiffened terror and
hoard my heart boat. Its mouth waa loosely parted and running with saliva; so wido I
was it hanging open at tho corners that tho
serrated edges of tho lower lips wero
pluinly visible. It gazed with n steadfast
look of Buch grinning cruelty, such conscious malignity, that it froze my blood nnd
turned my limbs to stono. This description
of sight and feeling was, of courso, tho impression ot one vivid conception condensed
by n minute's agony.
Tho tiger crossed the India matting of
the room with a noiseless swinging gait; as
it appoared to havo come from tho obscurity near the piano, so it vanished into ob*
simrity beyond—that is, outsido tho pathway of the lantern light. I stood perfectly immovable, still clutching tho books
with iny loft arm, Btill holding the lantern
beforo mo, still gazing at tho place it had
crossed, and apparently forever seeing
that awful look upon the tiger's broad fnco.
It seemed as if my oyes saw the fuco,
though my mind had rapidly suggested tho
-frightful probability that tho tiger was bo*
B hind me. At tho samo timo, by some dual
mental process, it was holding out hopo
that the animal hnd passed through tho
great folding doors iuto tho dark room beyond. 1 have no remombrunce ut all of my
mind dictating tho next action I pursued;
it seemed just an Instinct indulged in hy
the body upon Its own account and for its
own immediato preservation.
I laid the books vpry carefully down without making tho slightest unnecessary noise
or disturbing tho baud that held the lantern, nnd thon raising with slow effort ono
of tho heavy little chairs that blocked my
passage, I silently swung It on to my
shoulders and held it. bo tlmt Itcovoredmy
bend, then turned slowly sidowiso with my
mind impressed with tho necessity of keeping my hm tern as fur as possible behind
mu. This struck mo nt tho timo as clever
and of tmquostlonublo importance in saving my lifo. I managed to walk gontly
out of tho room. I suppose I had boon in
live minutes, but it scorned liko a weary
| hour.
As I closed tho door and looked it my
brother unexpectedly came down tho pas-
iiiif'o and passed mc on tho little stairs; ho
_ wns rathor ln a hurry.
P ''Godfrey," I called aftor him, "do you
mind pulling tho front door to m tho largo
dnuvlng-roopi as you go by?" It soems
t-i.ratigonow, butl could think of nothing
olso to say then, and I said tt slowly and
quito naturally.
Ho assented and disappeared, and I, without noticing it nt the time, took iu the chair
•■gain nud with my lantern ascended tho
short flight of stairs, and proceeded along
the passage to my own room, walking slowly und guardedly. Tho mind had evidently
been so shocked thut It bad not recovered
its dominant awny over the body. Upon
reaching my own room I put tho chnir
carefully down nnd sat upon it. Tho lantern I Md placed on the table at tho namo ,
■m thoro a few seconds 'feebly
wondering which room tho tiger was in.
Tkonl'got up with a sudden alacrity, took
from ita caso a large revolvor, and turned
Into tho pussngo again. In a minuto or so
I was lu Godfrey's room. Ho was half-
dressed. "What's tho matterl" ho demanded, with startled eyes. When I had told
htm hu took tny hand and wrung it, "You
mny thank God that you aro nlivo, old fel
low." Thou ho drossed hurriedly, took n
heavy rifle from a rack, tilled his pockets with cartridges. "Come along; slay,
let mo go first; your nerves aro a bit shaky
yot."
Wo crept out and awakonod tho punkah-
wallah, an old and faithful Hindu, whom my
briii hor once nursed during a daiigorouB
llltiiiBs—a bravo, reliable and trustworthy
man, who would have laid his lifo down for
Godfrey,
"it is tho man-eaterl" said tho Hindu,
bfti'i- my recital. "Will tho sahib lot hip
servant advise him!"
"Yen, Unmoo; tell mo your plau."
An Lho Hindu rapidly unroldcd It my
brother smiled dubiously at tho strange]
Woo, jtOtUWlto
•'Cunning must be mot with cunning,'1
said tiio Hindu.
"It'll tako threo hours to arrange," I remarked.
"Threo hours will bring the.Uawa, now,
who can nee in the dark; not the fj^flib, but
yes, tho tiger."
"Very woll," said Godfrey. ''Let's eet
about it nt once." From tho gardener's
outhouse wo brought a roll of wire nettm*-
that hud been put there for fencing iii a
paddock a few days previously. Tog-*:har
wo collected ni'insful of shavings the work-,
men hnd not cleared away, quantities of
dried loaves, rugs, every thing wo could
find soft and pliable; and having eut lho
wire in to threo aquaro lengths firmly lashed
them together, one ovor tho other. When
completed it was tho shape, but ralhcy
larger than tho window In the room in
which tlio tiger lay hidden and the doors of
which had been locked. Our operation n so
fm* had been conducted upon lhe verandah
outside, nenr tho gardener's room; we then
rolled up Um wiro netting nnd carried it

the wholo mass assumed (some consistency
and clung to the Interstices oftho netting.
RamopnoJtb took somo stout twiuo and improvised a rough kind of needle from a
bamboo cane. With this implement he
sewed all over tho mass of stuff, lliha making n string netting that helped to keep the
conjposiLion In itsi plnco. Bo far, so
goot!; the most difficult operation yet re*
in nlned.
"Tako my **un," Baid f-*cdf•;(--■.• lo i»o,
"nnd give mo tho revolver."
He pushed the revolver in his bolt, laid
hold of ono ond of the netting, and threw
off hir. shoes. With slow and iiolsoloss slop
the netting, looking vory like n largo mat-
tress, was carried exactly opposito thu
window and laid gently down; thou both
retired ns silently ns they had advanced.
Rumco then brought from tho outhouse a
ladder, and with a gesturo of entreaty
signed to my brother to stand asido and
take his riilo in his hand. With buro feet
tho Hindu crept up to tho window again
and reared tho ladder against tlio wall.
Taking a coil of rope from his neck, he
deftly fastened it to tho highest wall staple of
tho outsido shutter. Descending, he quickly enlaced the short strand in the netting,
placed tho ladder on the other side, and ran
the thong through tha other staple. For
the ursc ume bo made a noise, out it was
unavoidable, and was caused by tho netting boing drawn upward till It hung liko a
great curtain covering tho shutter and hid ■
ing tho window from us.
Godfrey and Istood ready to tiro.
The Hindu, perspiring at every pore, de-
seended the ladder, wliich lie lowered and
placed horizontally on tho window sill, nnd
lushed it to tlie bottom of tha netting, and
again fastened that to the two lower staples
on cither Bide,
Tho thing was done; far away in tho east
tho dawn was breaking, nhovo which lho
morning star was slowly paling hia silver
firo.
"But, llamee, tho shutters arc still fastened I"
"Sahib, I unfastonod them;   they aro
open as tho breadth of a man's hand;
presently tho light will stream through."
"Quick! fetch another rifle 1"
When ho returned I took the gun and gavo
him my revolvor.
A light breath of wind passed murmuring
through tho feathery crowns of tho slender
cocoa palms, two great spears oF light' shot,
up iu tho sky, somewhere in tho garden tt
bird aang; tiio sun had risen. "Wait liho
signal," whispered my brother; "uow,
Rumco.** Tho Hindu knelt down mid imitated tho bloating of a kid that had lost. Its
mothor. Atthe instant Romeo sprang to
his foot tho silonco was rent by :i BUndering
crash and n sudden terrific ronr; tho &hut*
tors Wore torn from tholr sockets; n grout
mnss hurled itself precipitately through Uio
window, uud tho tiger with its tiotul nnd
shoulders buried in tho lime-covered debris,
wus grupplltig in maddened fury with an
enemy ho could not soo uor mnko much impression upon.
Our gnus wero nt our shoulders.
The animal wns twenty feet from un,
tearing up the graveled path nnd coding itself in inox in cnblo confusion in tiio brokon
netting hud splintered ladder. Ramoe uttered a lond cry. Tiio animal had freed Its
head, nndstood with Us bleeding mouth hum
enforced (ind listening uttltudo; It was tho
moment Godfroy had waited for, uud lio
tired. Tlio tiger j evidently not seeing htm,
sprang at Lhe window again, but missed
tho opening, hurling himsolf against the
wall und falling ou tho broken shutters.
At tho minute it alighted I aimed nt the
spot behind the shoulder and tired; it gave
a convulsive leap aud turned its bloodshot
eyes in our direction. Then Godfrey fired
again and told mo to do tho samo.
"Bookl back!" cried Ramce.
Tho animal had gathered itsolf togethet
and sprang forward with ono mighty bound,
and rolled over with a scream of dying
rage.
When wo camo to mcasui-o tho brute
afterward wo found it was fifteen feot

THE SAVING HABIT.
Somotlitng About tlio Advnnti-g*-- .■-!' IIou-
i-Htly-Cuiiiliiotod niiilillng Sii--!.-ii.-r--.
A writer in New Haven BuiSUin'-' News
has tho following to say upon the habit pf
savin**; something Torn rainy day, or fiftajitst
tho time of need: "Tho savings of the me-
ohonlo and Inhering man are nccessari'y
limited, and, in tho ordinary way of laying
by a littlo now and thou they may get ths-
couragedon account of the lotiglb of liriu
necessary to nccumulnto BUfflolont to uo*
compllsh these desires nnd nre very likely to
givo up in despair when your nfter yen.-
passes and tbey still seo tho object far oif.
Hut with tho assistance rendered by tho
union of individuals exactly in the same eon*
ilition of lifo with himself, he cun command,
iu tho beginning of practical life, the means
wliich, without thla union, would require
years of toil aud self-denial, and then ho
would nrrivo at tbo ideal of his mind when
his capacity for its enjoyment would have
pnsscd tho meridian, and his piitlnyuy, in
oouBoquonoo of yeara of tod, Ib ueooBunrlly
downwnrd. Horo ho hoglns nt tho end, as
it wero, und secures lho benefits of yours nl'
saving beforo ho has mudu any nceuuuiU-
tlon; and in liquidating Ida engagements
Wltli lho association only returns thereto
What bo would hnvo Imd to pay a Iti ndlord for
a rental, whilo feeling that only for a short
timo Is thin nocossary, and then his obligations aro ended, renders it a comparatively
"easy tnslt, for ho Is working to lho end ho
wishes to attain, and there is positive moral
corlniuty that ho will aud can roach It. How
much bettor, then, for ovory man who Is
within reach of thoso great and good Instt-
tuttona to connect, himself therewith and
soeuro hia own Independence, and thus feel
conscious Hint his onorgloa have not boon
expended in producing nn income for lho
support of another, to tiio exclusion of his
own person and family."
Heavy Fogs In Iiondon,

ohnrnctor of tho fogs is whnt mattes tho

fog comes or whence it goes, and it gives no
notico of Its nppoarnnco or departure, Tho
sun may bo shining at Hyde Park, and Cannon street maybo wrapped iu palpablo
gloom. On tho first appearance or tho fog
men are stationed near every railway signal to plnco cxploslvo wafers on tho lino,

Tho salmon ruu last night was excellent, and as a oonscquonco tho canneries were running full blast to-day.
Tho hump hacks have kept off surprisingly woll this year, only a fow having mado their appearance up to dato,
and it is hoped thoy may fail lo put in
an appearance. The lirst cohoo was
caught yesterday, but it was only a
straggler, and not expected for u
montli yot. If a good cohoe run follows tho soolcuye, there is no telling
what dimensions tho pack may attain.
The Pitt Itiver HrlrtRr.
It is quite evident that tho C. P. It,
does not consider tho Pitt rlvor bridgo
very safe at present, as n locomotivo is
not allowed to haul a passenger train
across.   Tlio plan  now  followed  is:
The engine hnuling tho traiu uncouples
and runs slowly across;  another on*
jfine, which has been following, notiples
onto lhe train behind, gives it a good
strong shovo, unjouplen t-sforu reach*
Ing the bridge, stops and  allows  tho
train to pass over by itsolf.     Tho flint
locomotivo then couples on to thu train
again and proceeds.   It is uuite posaiblo this nu/ main a new bridge in
tht near future.
The Kamloops Timmnmcni,
A meeting of tho Kamloops base
ball club was hold at the interior capital lnut night, when it was decided to
hold a grand base ball tournament at
that town on September 10th. Committees were appointed to mako the
necessary arrangements, and it was do-
cided to send nut tlio advertising
posters within a week. Every club
West of Winnipeg will bo freo to outer,
anil the piij-ea will bo sufficiently liberal to induce a large number of clubs
to attend. From the spirit manifested
at tho mooting lust night, it is evident
tho Kamloops people nro determined
to mnko this tho greatest baso hnll
tournament ever held on the Pact tic
slope.

Hon. Eugene Cuulield writes under
dato of August oth that ho is going on
tfitli his railway the same ns if no
alteration to his plans had been forced,
and that hu will build thu lino from
Whato in to Kingsboro this fall. His
original intention of finding a tcrminufi
at Westminster still remains, but if
debarred from connection into lho
royal city lie will have to look elso*
where, Mr, Oanfield has met with
pretty hard luok in railway matters,
and it is generally hoped he will yet
"hub up Boronely." and experience n
happy ran ligation of all hia wishes.
Weatminater can stand as many railroads ns can bo built to it, and if tho
Cuulield rond comes it will bo as welcome as any.
Must be Stopped.
An itinerant doctor (I) held forth on
Columbia street last night, extracting
teeth nud selling some sort of medicine.
Ho treated lho crowd to a harangue
worthy of euch a person ns ho proved
himself tu bo. His attack on the lady
members of tho Salvation army waB
cowardly iu tho extreme, and unworthy
of anyone claiming to have a grain ot
manhood in his composition. A few
of tho by-standers deservedly hissed
him, but a dosu of rotten eggs would
havo suited his caso better. The aide-
walks wero blocked up for the space of
ovor an hour, which is against tho
streets ami sidewalks regulation bylaw, and it is to bo hoped if ho indulges in such a harangue to-night the
police will promptly put an ond to the
exhibition.
Harrison Lake.
A strungo phenomenon is roported
from Harrison Lake, and one that is
puiding the brains of the oldost navigators of theso waters, us woll as the
Indians who havo lived on its shores
for many years. Tho water iu tbo lake
has continued to riso steadily for two
weeks, and during that time has raised
iU feet. This is unaccountable, as thero
has not been a drop of rain during the
past mouth, nnd tho rush of water
from the mountain lakes is not greater
thnu usual, besides which tho Fruser
river lins been falling slowly all this
time. Of courso thero must bu a reason for this singular phenomenon, but
it cannot to discovered. Any of tho
rivor steamers can now pass up Harrison river and into tho luke without
difficulty, whilo a month ago only tho
smaller vessels could find water enough
to Hoat them.
DAILY BRITISH COLUMBIAN, KEW WESTMINSTER, B. a, AUGUST 6, 1889,

The sixteenth annual prizo meeting
of tho British Columbia Rifle Association was opened to-day at tho Browns*
villo range with the customary formalities. Every arrangement had been
perfect ed for the meeting and all passed
off according to programme. A largo
number of ladies woro present at tho
oponing and many of them remained
during tho aftornoon. Sharp.ht 12:30
o'clock Mrs. W, Norman Bole fired
tho first shot, scoring ubullseyo, which
result wan received with-'throe cheers"
and a "tiger" for tho plucky lady. By
request, Mr. W. Norman Bole, Q, C,
M. P. P., thon formally declared tho
meeting opened, making a short speech
and congratulating the oflicers of tho
association ou thu good prospects for
a successful meeting. Tho tiring of
No. 1 match immediately commenced.
The number of entries for the first
mutch was not so great, ns expected,
but many marksmen who entered tho
matches havo not arrived yt-t, but will
bo on hand to-morrow. The range
shows a wonderful improve ment iu
ovory way and is almost unrecognizable, though much remains to bu done
before it will be in lirst class condition.
The filing points are all connected with
thu butti by telephone, which is a
great convenience indued, and a epucial
telegraph lino ucmnucts tho rango with
the head office in this city. Thoro is
a refreshment booth on tlio range, and

The t'«rteM**PH' Sliitrlnae
The marriago at tho Foresters'1 picnic ut Victoria on Saturday was quito
au excitement for tho ladies. At 4
o'olock in tho afternoon tho chairman
of thu committee, Mr. Strachnn, announced that tho public marriago had
boen unavoidably postponed to 0
o'clock Thu truth of thu matter waB
that the committeo had been disappointed by tho couple chosen by them.
nml in the ItiBt moment had to «iaku
arrangements for tho mnrrmge of a
local couple. Mr. Percy Harcourt
and Miis Grace May Trachler, both of
the capital, and the former a member
of tho A. O. F., presented themselves
ns willing to till the breach, and at 0
o'clock Bishop Oridgo wns sent for, a
license procured nnd made out. The
crowd could uot havo nunihurud less
than (!,000 qs the carriage containing
the bride and bridegroom drovo
through the gates to tho ring. They
wero escorted by tho committee to thu
canopy erected for tho celebration,
and wero mot by tho bishop under thu
Union Jack. Thu ceremony wub performed with all duo solemnity, and tho
bride boru herself throughout hor trying ordeal. When tho secretary called
for three cheers for thu newly made
bride and bridegroom after the cere*
iii ny, the outburst of applause could
havo boen heard mileB away. The
bride, thanks to tho courtsey of several ladies who supported her, was
not at nil nervous. Large numbers of
small children scattered Ilowurs over
tlm path down which the couplo
walked to thoir hack. Thoy drovu
away followed by loud applause, everybody boh]**" well satistietl thut a iiiarri-
ngn had bueu colobrated as   promised.
Hnnienny Lake IMiirlrl.
Tho grout want of this important
mining district seems at present to bu
the means of shipping oro to tho new
smeller which is being erected nt
Revelstiike. At present all ore-) which
are rich enough to bear tho oxponso
are shipped to Montana by way of
I limner's ferry, otanoxpoimo of freight
and treatment which exceeds $40 per
ton. Of courso this preclude.1) tho possibility of Bonding tho lowor grades.
By the construction of a short line of
waggon road from Sproat's Landing,
on tlie Columbia, to Nelson, on Kootenay Lake, a distance of about 30
miles, these orcB could bo brought to
Rovelstoko at a coat of nbout $15 per
ton. Two parties nro now intending
to plnce n stern wheel stoamor on thu
Columbia, but nro awaiting thu notion
of tho government in regard to this
road. Tho estimated coat of thu road
is placed at 625,000 to $30,000, but
for. temporary purposes, perhaps a
cheaper road would answer. Proposals have boen mado by parlies interested in tho mining region to construct thu road and wait for next
year's appropriation for ropayinent.
With tho present) strong government
It seems ns if such action should bu
taken, and it would undoubtedly be
sanctioned ot tho noxt sobbIoii of tho
local parliament,
Kootenay district is undoubtedly the
most promising of any mining suction
in the province, and tho commencement of this work would givo tho
minors renewed confidence in tho mio-
cos'i of tho camps. If matters aro left
to tho uncertain action of the O. P. H,
In making n r,iilriu*d into the lake, tho
mining interests will Inngulsh, nnd at
lenst another year will elapse before
muoh development will take place.
Koo'cnny Canal Opened,
W. A. Bnillie Grohman, Esq., of
Kootenay, reached Kamloops Friday
evening on hia wny to the const. He
remained over for a day, ond from him
a Sentinel representative learned that
on Monday last, tho 29th ult., there
was opened at Grohman, in Kootenay,
in the presence ot a conaiderablo gathering, the first canal and system of
locks in tho province. The canal connects tlio Kootenay river with the
Oolumbia; it is onu and one-third miles
in length, and has onu lock 100 feet in
length, 30 feot wido and 17 foot deep,
to overcome thu difference between tho
two river levuls it connects. It waB
constructed by tho Kootenay Valley
Co., of Londun, England, the contractor carrying out tho work being
tho well-known energetic T. F. Sinclair, who, despite almoat insurmountable obstacles in tho shape of water
and quicksand, completed tho work in
a vory satisfactory manner, the canal
having beon examined and taken ovor
by the government engineer before tho
water was lut in. The canal is at pro*
sent praclio-illy useless, until tho federal government carries out some moat
essential improvements on tbe Columbia rivor nbout ton. mitoj north of the
canal, said improvements consisting of
cleaning the narrow channel of snags
and other obstructions, and . also
cutting ft tiw path for a distance of
about three miles. Whon theso improvements aro made, the object of
the canal will then be attainable, making the two rivers navigable for a distance of 200 miles or more—or iu other
words, from the 0. P. R, nt ('olden to
tho American boundary. Who can
tell what bearing this may have upon
the trade and transportation of the
district, and in fact the whole province, aud Jet ub hope tho Dominion
government will loso no timo in having
tho necessary improvements made.—

CORRESPONDENCE.
Maple   lt'tlgc   Municipality   nml   the
I. O. V. T.
Editor Colombian,—-In your last report of the doings of our municipal council there wns an Important omission,
■which tho concluding item bolow will
supply. Please publish the appended
notes containing extracts from tho minutes of the last meeting of tho I. O. G.T.
li)jl;*e und the municipal council, Thoy
speak for themselves and need not much
explanation. A disappointed applicant
for a liquor-liconso is "tho power behind
the throne," in securing this precious
pieco of legislation. Temperance people
aru sometimes taunted with the exploded
objection that you cannot make people
sober by act of parliament, and are advised to use only moral suasion. But
whoro they act uu this advice, us do tho
Good Templars at Maple Ridge, thoy arc
hindered in their noblo work by those
who would fain mako men drunk by act
of parliament.
At a meeting of tho I, O. G. T, lodgo
at Maple Hideo, after tho usual, routine
business had (icon disposed of, a matter
was brought to tho notice of the lodge
which tho members thought ought to bo
published for tho information of tho
municipality. It Is this: Tlio municipal council met Juno 1st, 1S89, and, on
motion of Coun. Ferguson, seconded by
Coun. Callaghan, It was resolved, "That
tho I. O. G. T. bo allowed the uso of tho
town hall as a lodgo room, providing
they agree to be responsible for any
tlamngc tho hall may sustain while in
thoir use, and that they in no way interfere with the municipal property.
But at the next meeting of tho council,
tho 0th July, without resoinding tho
former resolution, the following 'motion
waa aiiccossfully carried, viz.: "Moved
by Coun, Htoplieiuoii, seconded by Coun.
Isaac, and resolved, that tho Good Templars bo charged §5 per month, ond pay
all damage that thoy do to the hall,"
