NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is probable that the opposition
raised in Canada by tho press to the
wholesale importation of pauper
children Irom England has had its
cfl'cct. At any rate, the returns ol
the English Local Government
Board show that only 411 children
havo been exported to CanacY this
season. Tho London 7'«n« in commenting upon the fact says that
England may make up hor mind
that she will have to keep her own
paupers, a remark the appropriate-
noss of whioh will be appreciated by
Canadians.
The London Spectator speaks of
President Cleveland's having still
'Ifivo months to reign." Thit is an
TO|jliBltfli*^ijieeptiBn of wh*t th
American president does. He never
reigns, and when his successor has
been elected tho remaining months
of his term are spent in the saddest
of all earthly occupations, that of
packing up. In all the world there
is no more mournful spectacle than
that of a president preparing to vacate, except that of a president who
has vacated being ordered to "keep
off the grass" by a supercilious park
policeman,—America.
The statistical abstract of India
which has just been issued contains
an estimate of the population of
India in March, 1887, namely: British territory, 207,764,678; the native
states, 60,382,466; giving a total
population for all India of 268,137,-
014, Both in British territory and
tlie native states the number of
males is much larger than that of
females. In 1881 in British terri
tory there were 101.2 males to 97.4
females, and in the native states
28.7 males to 26.4 females, and in
all India there were in that year
just 6,013,419 more males than
females.
; An onstern exchange says: They
actually tried to interview Mr.
Chamberlain at New York, but the
impatient bridegroom refused to
talk politics and hastened on to
Washington. The New York reporters aro positively aghast at the
statesman's temerity in declining to
tell them all he knew. They are
equal to requesting tbe olergyman
who performs the marriage ceremony
to substitute for the usual questions
a few queries on leading topics,
such as "What do you think of the
Sackville ineidenti" "Are you interested in the Parnell commission 1"
and so forth.
Bonjamin Hareison will be 66
years 6 months and 14 days old
when he is inaugurated president of
the United States. His distinguished
grandfather was 68 years old at the
time of taking the oath of office
forty-seven yeara ago, Three other
presidents were 66 years old at the
beginning of their administrations.
They wero Martin Van Burcn,
Zaohary Taylor, and Rutherford B.
Hayes, Lincoln became president
at 62. John Tyler and Chester A.
Arthur were 61. Millard Fillmore
was 60. Franklin Pierce and James
A (Jarfield were 49. Grover Cleveland was 48. Grant was 47. AU
the other presidents were older than
General Harrison.
The Princess Louise has been paying a visit to Glasgow. Lord Lome
and the Princes* had been spending
somo days with tho Duke of Argyle,
at Inverary castle, and went thence
to Glasgow to see the exhibition.
Although the visit wat a private
one, the municipal authorities wero
on hand to give the Princess an unofficial reception, and to bid her wel-
coino to the northern metropolis. A
visit was also paid to Queen Margaret's college, of which Princess
Louiso is president, nnd there an
address from tho eouncil, lecturers
and students was presented. The
party during their stay in the vicinity were the guests of Sir Archibald Campbell, of Blytheswood.
Says an exchange: A sensation
has been created in Woodstock by a
sor'mon preached by Rev. Mr. Farthing, of the Episcopal church there,
in denunciation of gambling. Mr.
Farthing condemns the practice as
tending to deprave the community,
and to divert men from honest toil
to spcculativo means of making a
living, The practice is a tremendous deception in more ways than
one. Whenever a man falls a victim to the gambler* the popular
feeling is one of regret. But a due
regard for the circumstances will
show that the man has really made
a fool of himself by deliberately
walking into a trap. Nobody but
the professional gambler makes money at gambling. The games of
chance are not devised with a view
to giving the greenhord an equal
opportunity with his gambling acquaintance. Even if the appliances
aro not fixed so as to prevent the
novice from winning, the superior
knowledge of the game possessed by
the professional renders los* to the
beginner a certainty.

THEY HAVEN'T MONEY ENOUGH.
Chicago, Nov. 21.—A News' 8|iecinl
from Indianapolis Bays that an intimate
friend uf General Harrison, aaid
yesterday: "General Harmon, liko ull
president!, will desire to do something
that will give his administration
prominence in tho history of his count-
try, and I have reason to believe ono
of his first official acts will be negotiation! for the annexation of Canada."
• "What is his plan of annexation ?"
"He believes that tbe United States
oan and should receive Canada iu a
peaceable manner. His idea is that
the territory can bo annexed to the
United States hy assuming Canada's
debts. If the territory cannot bo obtained for that consideration, I think
General Harrison would favor *mying
a considerable bonus, I understand
he has said privately that the surplus
in the treasury could not be spent in a
wiser manner than in buying Canada.
Whatever his plan for making Canada
a portion of the United States may be,
I know he heartily favors such a move,
ahd will so recommend ln his first message to congress.'*

THE MANITOBA RAILWAY CASE.
Ottawa, Nov. 21,—The hearing of
tbe Manitoba railway case commenced
before the full bench in the supremo
court to-day. Attorney-General Martin's counsel were: Hon. 0. Mowat,
the premier of Ontario, Mr. Dalton
McCarthy, Q. C. The Canadian Pacific Railway was repreeented by Hod.
Edward Blake, Judge Clark, the com'
pany's solicitor; Hon. Christopher
Robinson, Q. 0. Mr. Blake opened
the argument, followed by Mr. Robinson, who concludes to-morrow. The
province of Quebec wus represented by
counsel. Mr, Blake observed that
the question involved is simple in
character and was whether any work
or undertaking was under the exclusive
legislation of the federal parliament by
this reason whether the provincial
legislature''assuming to authorize it
was ultra vires by the legislature and
therefore void. He considered that
the legislative authority, which otherwise would have belonged to the province, was removed from them by
clause 10 of the 92nd section of the
British North American act. The test
question to be applied in any caia
was not whether the work mentioned
was one for the general advantage of
Canada, but whether the parliament
had declared it to be so. The declaration by the federal parliament iu such
a matter was indisputable. He charged
that tbe clauses of the British Nortb
Ameiican act must be treated in the
broadest possible way. Sections 306
and 307 of the railway aot, he concluded, took away from the provincial
legislatures the right to grant charters
for a railway which would cross or
connect with certain railways declared
by the Dominion parliament for the
general advantage of Canada.

The cause celebre case of the province of Manitoba versus the O.P.H.
—which has como to bo recognized in
its true light, as a tost case of pro
vincial rights in railway matters-
was opened yesterday nt Ottawa
before the supremo court of Canada.
The despatches of tlio last fow dnys
indicate that intense interest is boing
taken in the issue of tlie cu.se by the
eastern provinces. Eminent counsel have been engaged on both sides.
Mr. Edward Blake will argue the
case for the O.P.R, and Mr. Oliver
Mowat, premier of Ontario, for the
province of Manitoba, assisted by
Attorney-General Martin, of Manitoba. It is said that several
other provinces will be represented
by counsel also, ln Mr. Blake
the 0. P. E. will have an able
advocate, although we should
think the job would go rather
against his grain. Mr. Mowat lias
already won renown ns a champion
of provincial rights, in the famous
case of the disputed Keewatin territory, between the Dominion and
the province of Ontario, whioh he
so ably argued and won before the
British privy counoil a few years
ago The legal battle will be waged
principally upon tho interpretation
of clauses 306 and 307 of the Railway Act, which we give below:
306. The Intercolonial Bailway, the
Grand Trunk Bailway, the North Shore
Bailway, the Northern Bailway, the
Hamilton and North-Weatern Hallway, tbe Canada Southern Bail-
way, the Great Western Railway, the
Credit Valley Bailway, the Ontario and
Quebec Railway, and the Canadian Pacifio Railway, are hereby declared to be
works for the general advantage ol Canada, and each and every branch line or
railway now or hereafter connecting with
or crossing tbe said lines of railway, or
any of them, is a work for the general
advantage of Canada.
307. Every such railway and branch
line ahall hereafter be subject to the
legislative authority of tho parliament
of Canada; but the provisions of any
act of the legislature of any province of
Canada, passed prior to the twenty-fifth
day of May, one thousand eight hundred and eighty-three, relating to any
auch railway or branch line, aud in
force at that date, shall remain in force
sd for as they are consistent with any
act of tbe parliament of Canada passed
after that date.
The case briefly is this: Manitoba,
in common with the other provinces
of the Dominion federation, has certain provincial rights and 'privileges
with regard to provincial railway
enterprises guaranteed hor by tlie
British Noith America Act end by
certain clauses of the Bailway Act
mentioned above. The 0. P. E.
hope to show by their interpretation
of the clauses cited above that Manitoba, and hence overy other province as well, has practically no
such rights in railway matters as it
was plainly the intention oi the
confederation act that they should
have. The O.P.R., ot course, wish
the law to be so interpreted as that
the Bed River Volley Railway may
be removed from provincial to Dominion control, being, as they are,
on much better terms with the Dominion government than with the
sturdy recalcitrants of Manitoba.
The action of the O.P.R, in this
matter is not creditable to that corporation, seeing that its very doubtful monopoly rights in the first
place wero recently purohased by the
Dominion government nt an exorbitant figure. If tho supreme court
of Canada, now sitting at Ottawa,
sustains the interpretation put upon
clauses 306 and 307 of the Bailway
Act by tho O.P.R., it will be about
time to have the Railway Act
emended by striking those clauses out
altogether; and that is what the pro-

Some personal pointers about the
next occupant of the "white house"
and his family will not be uninteresting.   General Harrison, who will
be inaugurated on the 4th of March
next as the   twenty-thin! president
of the United States, is desoribed as
a tmall man (the presidential chair
will, at any rate, litve a rest after
groaning for   four   years   under
Graver's bulky avoirdupois), solidly
built, with light  eyes,  beard  and
hair.   In gait, as  in despatch  of
businesa, he it unusually quick.   In
debate lie is effectively witty.   Except when aroused or interested, his
manners are retiring almost to bash-
fulness.     Alertness,  perseverance,
* and sound judgment are said  to be
bla roost salient characteristics.   A
writer who enjoys some measure of
*a**Monal acquaintance with General
Harrison,  uys:    "He   generally
•earns wrapt in thought, but haa a
way of gUnoing up at a man  with
• awift,  comprehensive look that
take* one unawares, but seems to be
perfectly uti-factory to the observer."   A* a ipeaker, his enunciation
il d**oribed a* dear, his voice melo-
dio«,  and  hi*  nu*ncy unfailing,
wUI* Mi manner i* deferential yet
confident,   and  a   resemblance is
traood In hit oratory to that of the
renowned   Britiih   .tateaman and
orator, Gladitone.   Mra. Blaine's remark, on bearing, in Scotland, that
Harriion kail received tke Republican nomination, that he "came ot a
fine tail-," ie oc-roboraUd by the
(not*,   Ito pbtMD,alihoa*gh an un
failing social passport, does not
necessarily mean much. However,
when, aa in Ihe case of the presidentelect, a person's ancestors have been
noted for generations us being pos-
sessed of "fine" mental, uiurul und
social qualities, such a prestige is
not to bo sneezed nt. "The Harrison family," says nn authority, " is
now the first in America, and second
to none in the world. It has the
right to bo as proud, but is as
modest as any. in the country. * * *
While some * * * have had
their heads turned by display and
shoddy ostentation, and base their
claims to recognition on coach-top
and bob-tail notoriety, tho Harrisons
have maintained the genuineness of
truo aristocrats, nnd, through bewildering ovations, a Vore-dc-Vere
equilibrium." Some other good
things arc said of Harrison, among
which is tho following: "His sincerity (in his religious belief) was
shown by unremitting observance,
during tho greatest campaign pros-
sure, of the good old custom of
family prayers. He believes that
reading and expounding the scriptures to the young is an intellectual
as woll as a moral training." An
Amerionn writer adds: "Every good
citizen, irrespective of party, may
rejoice that another avowed champion of Bible study should be chosen
to tho presidency." e'roni nil of
which it appears that the new president of the United States is a pretty
good sort of mon, after all. Whatever motives and methods come into
pluy iu a presidential campaign, it
must be admitted that our neighbors, as a rule, enter picked men in
the lists at the head of the two great
parties. It is tho undigni'ied, and,
too often, immoral, political by-play
that is discreditable. With rcBriect
to the insinuation that Blaine would
wield tho real influence in American
politics in the event of Harrison's
election to tlie presidency, it does
not seem probable that a man of the
individuality and force of character
that the president-elect bus been
shown to be would permit anything
of the sort, aud the result will likely
prove that Harrison will boss his
own job. In that event, neither his
own country, nor thoso having the
most intimate relations with it, will
havo to deplore the election of the
grandson of the hero of Tippecanoe
to the "highest office in the land."
Mrs. Harrison, upon whom will soon
delvolvo the social honors and duties
of the "white house," is described as
follows: She is a woman "without
a history," except the noblest that a
lady may have—tbat of a faithful
helpmate to a distinguished man.
The personal attractions, the fine intelligence, and the gentle birth,
which are hers in ample measure,
seem secondary considerations compared with the exalted devotion to
tho poor young lawyer and to the
absent soldier through tho struggles
of pioneer life, and the heart-rending
separation incident to warfare.
With a charming daughter and a
very beautiful son's wife to assist
her in the "white house," Mrs. Harrison is likely to treble the unusual
feminine attractions presented in the
executive mansion by tho Cleveland
administration.

Uluiau-Zufluence of tlio Canadian in
Bis Native Land-Commercial Union
with Canada and the Outlook for It
j     —Comedian fVlUon and His Fat Sal-
ory-Wliy Ho Prefers To "Star" It.
{CopytigM 1999.)
In a flying trip thronfth New York Sunday I ran across two rather eminent men
in tho Grand Central railroad statlon.and
both of their names begin with W. One
was Erastus Wiman, the Canadian, and
tlie other Francis Wilson, the comedian,
Wilson had come on from Boston to see
his family, and Wiman had just come in
from tho Wost,
-The Canadian Is a powerfully built,
erect, bright-eyed man of perhaps forty-
live years, with a clear-cut profilo and a
manner tbat is quick, alert and vigorous.
Ho Is one of the best talkers among tho
publio men of New York, Inasmuch as
bis conversation la what newspapermen
call "meaty." He seems to be loaded to
tbe guards with facts, and he shoots them
off with rocket-llko force one after
another as he talks. Speaking of politics
he said:  *
"Why Is it that tbe Canadian vote
attracts so littlo attention? There are
13,000 ballots oast by Canadians ln Minnesota, and they have it in their power to
elect a President under certain contingencies. Yet, nobody ever thinks of trying to Influence tbls power. Altogether
there are a million Canadians in tho
United States, and I am glnd to seo that
tbey nro beginning to appear on the
f>urfnee. Personally," be added with a
mnili', "I am doing all I can to bring them
Into prominence."
j\Jr. Wiman's position In the United
Stales Is somewhat unique. Without
occitpyliif* any official station orbecom-
' lug a citizen, ho Is one of the best known
mun i:i tho land. Frank Thurber, tbe
bend of perhaps tho greatest grocery
establishment in tho world, said in a
:-|K<(!ch not longslnce: "The best ndver-
t ise-l individuals iu North America to-day
in-j Sara Bernhardt nnd ErnstusjWIman."
Wiman Is constantly catching the publio
rye as a successful business man and an
earnest promoter of large enterprises, and
above all by bis indefatigable efforts In trying to bring together the Interests of his
native land and those of tho country of
his adoption. Exactly where Mr. Wiman
expects to get his reward for his contlau-
and expensive labors toward tho
accomplishment of the commercial union,
it Is difficult to see. The ,'number of
books, pamphlets and addresses he bas
printed would swamp an ordinary millionaire, but he goes, on with bis work
'with undevlatinc* earnestness. Iu traveling In Canada I found that his influenco
Ib second only to that of Sir John Macdonald and Sir Richard Cartwrigbt.
Probably a large share of Mr. Wiman's
power in his native placo Is due to the
fact tbat though be has lived In the
United States for more than a quarter of a
century,ho has never parted with hisCan.i-
dian nationality. I asked him about It
once and bo said that he did not take up
American citizenship because he felt that
the day would come when his loyalty to
bis native land would enable him to
serve both countries. Theadvance
has been made iu the commercial union
agitation within the post few months is
very great, despite tbe set-back which It
received from President Cleveland's
retaliation message. Wiman looks upon
it as a possibility within five years; but
this view Is not generally shared by Canadian statesmen.
' The other W—actor Wilson—is tbe man
who received the remarkable salary of
thirty thousand dollars a year from the
Casino for playing comedy parts. It Is
the largest salary received by any actor
lu the world, though I think some of tho
stars of tho profession make mon money.
Despite his great success and the money
he Is making, Wilson has decided to
leave the Casino nnd beoome a star.
"What's tbe good," he said, "of having a
wife and family lu New York if you havo
to be introduced to your own children
BVery timo you go to town* Like most
men In tbls world I am fond of the best,
and New York about realizes that condition. My family and all my interests aro
there. I havo ample means and a largo
icquaintance In the town, and yet hero I
un obliged to start out in September and
remain away from peoplo I love six or
■even months. I prefer to be my own
roaster, and on that account I am going
■o start off for myself on the 1st of May.
[f I succeed, well and "good. If I fail, I
lave the glorious satisfaction of knowing
hat I can pay. Don't fancy that I am
Hied up with discontent, misery and woe
-not a bit of it. I will stand up and take
ill tbat comes to me, good, bad and lndlf-
erent, and smile like a delirious Mug-
rump. Mine Is not a disjointed or dls-
ippotnted career, I have much to be
■fleef ul over, and I haven't lost or gained
i respiration over tbe many professional
roubles tbe papers have talked io much
ibout. Things might have been more
tleosant to me, but all Is fair In love and
var, so let her went. I have a capital
company selected, Including Jansen, and
am going to run In opposition to the
Casino and McCaull. Tlie principal opera
vill be the -Oolah,.' but I have also a very
nerry little opera called 'The Singer and
lis Song.' When I w is la Paris I mado
u adaptation of an opera which I bellove
* funnier than either of the abovo named,
ud John Paul Bocock has done the lyrics
or tt. It Is yet unnamed. Tho'Oolah'
rill, of course, be the opening work,
lecause It Is the best advertised. I have
ltogether six operas lu good condition,
nd I nm going to put one on right after
bo otber so as not to weary tbe people by
rying to run a piece tho whole season.

•"■■•"•Who has studied alienism," said a
■argertnt New York physician In the
on tan House this week, "bnt the
tched assassin who has terrorimd
^mlo-i by n series of atrocious murders
suffering from a mental disease which
well known to tbo medical faculty.
hedlseasela a monomania whose chief
laracterlstic 1* morbid thoughts and
ellngs and unnatural conduct toward
ie other sex. The last takes all sorts of
irma t)ttt aeldom exprui«ilt»Uin homl*
demotions. In a recent ease here In
ew York the monomanlao took an
isane delight In promenading Broadway
hen It was crowded with shoppers and
irowlng small quantities of oil of vitriol
i every handsome silk dress he walked
ut. He ruined several hundred dresses
ifore he wu eapght by Inspector Byrnei
i Fourteenth stnet. Similar to this
ne was that of • young man who
■owled Broadway near Thirty-fourth
net some six yean ago and squirted
irosens oil npon tho clothes of well-
■essed and fine-looking women, He was
so apprehended after considerable hard
ark on the part of the police and I think
* Inspector, then Captain,Williams. An
t«resting case In which the disease took
ridiculous turn was ln Chicago, Hen
old bachelor found a morbid pleasun
stealing shoes from women. He would
Jy take one shoe and that one the left
be could get It, and It unite ao differ-
euce to him whether the woman was old
or young, rich or poor, pretty or ugly.
Upon the man's death, bis diary disclosed
over two hundred thefts of this class and
iu his bureau and trunks were more than
ninety shoes and sllppen he had stolen
from the other sex.
"Two cases recorded by tbo French
authorities verge upon the sentimental.
Iu one tbo monomanlao had a craze for
ribbons around women's necks, nud
would resort to assault and battery to
obtain tbem If be could not do It hy craft
or address. In the other, the man's weakness was locks of hair. He went provided with barbers'scissors, and whenever the opportunity presented itself
would relieve aluckless woman of a handful of hair. Both of these fellows carefully preserved their spoils and kept
them arranged and labeled In a way thnt
would do credit to a scientific cabinet.
"Twd other Instances, one in Berlin and
the other in Vienna, were of a very different nature, In each of these tbe maniac
assumed a set of clothes that were almost
a disguise, consisting of a slouched hat
pulled down over tbe faco and n military
cloak drawn np around the neck until
tho collar nearly met tbe hat brim, Tims
attired, tbey would start out iu quest of
victims, When an attractive woman
approached, they would hide themselves
behind a tree or projecting building, and
If tho coast was clear as she passed, glldo
noiselessly behind her and stab her In tho
arm or back with a sharp penknife. Tlio
wound was always painful, seldom dangerous and never fatal, Both of thrso
wretches wero captured finally by the
polioe and convicted by the courts.' They
were examined after the trial by. expert
alienists and pronounced insane. Tiny
were sent to asylums for Insane crtmiim-U
and died not long afterward from paretic
"A common form of the disease Which is
found ln nearly all large asylimfn, in
where the victim imagines himself tho
object of the admiration and passu.-! ot
numberless beautiful women. I recall
one case where the patient,who was seemingly sane ln all other respects, kept a
diary of tbe imaginary women who visited
him hourly, and wbo spent all his leisuro
time in writing love letters of the most
Intense type to himself from his fancied
pnramoun ahd admirers.
"Dr. Bronardel, a distinguished physician and writer ot Paris, has given this
subject great study and has collected a
vast number of cases. Ho instances not
less than seven men who killed women or
children while under tbe Impetus of
mania, and five of tbe six mutilated the
corpses In tbe same loathsome way as is
done by the Whitechapel fiend. Ouo of
the seveu, a quiet and well-educated man
named Menesclon, confessed to tha
authorities that he knew perfectly well
what he was doing when he murdered his
victims and suffered the pangs of remorse
during as well as after the commission of
tho crlme,but that he was seized with an
irresistible frenzy to kill which he oould
not control.
"The monomania to inflict pain and shed
blood is much more commou. Iu the
past six years three men have been convicted in Strasburg and two in Paris of
making passes at women with sharp,
steel pointed canes.
"These monomanias'make^their appearance usually toward the commencement
of general paralysis or paresis—in otber
words, toward the close of the sufferer's
life. At the outset he generally displays
tho nmarkable cunning and quickness
for which crazy people are noted. This
disappears as the disease progresses, and
tbo brain becomes more nud mow
impaired. Iu many cases the perpetrator
of this kind of crime Is never detected
and dies a few months or a year afterwards in some hospital or asylum. In all
probability the Whitechapel murderer is
a monomaniac of tbls class, who, If lm U
captured will probably cheat tbe gallows
by the natural progress of his disease."

GENERAL FRANZ SIQEL.
How tko Old Hero Carries Himself lit tko
Streets ot the Empire City*
A little old man came down Broadway
at a rapid gait the other afternoon. Tbo
tails of his long Prince Albert coat
flapped around his legs and Impeded his
progress, but he continued to move along
with a quick, nervous step, dodging hero
and there through the crowd, all his energies apparently bent on getting to his
destination in the shortest time possible.
At first sight then appeared to be nothing about him to Impress one in any way,
unless It was tho earnest expression tbat
seemed habitual to bis faco and the ner
vous, almost savage manner in whioh bo
shook his head whenever his, long,
straight hair strayed across bis vision.
It was astonishing, though, to see how
many peoplo bowed to him, many of them
apparently inclined to stop and speak.
But ho did not pause except to ntnrn tbo
courtesy with a polite, formal bow. Evidently that littlo old man had a great
many friends among the busy, bustling
throngs of peoplo that wen walking lu
the streets tbat afternoon.
At length he reached Canal stnet and
turned westward. In the short distance
Broadway to West Broadway I
counted a baker's down who touched
thelrhatsoshepassedthem. A few doors
beyond West Broadway, on Lalght street,
he turned into tho large brown building
occupied by the United States Pension
Agency, and disappeared Into tho inmost
private office.
This little old man, apparently so well
known, was Gen. Frans Slgel, United
States Pension Agent for the district of
New York. He Is one of the few men
alive to-day who have been prominent tn
battles fought on both sides ot the Atlantic for home aud liberty. He Is a veteran of the rebellion and also of the great
German revolution of 1819, Probably not
moro thnn Ave of his comrades in the latter struggle who wen or have becomo
prominent an alive to-day. .  H.G.T.

At the noxt sitting of parliament
it is the intention of tho government
to appropriate a sufficient sum of
money to build a fine composite
Bteamer for the use of the department
of fisheries in British Columbia. Tho
vessel will be built on the Clide and
will be specially adapted and flitted for
deep sea soundings, survery, etc. As
soon as the vessel arrives she will go
on a voyage of exploration for cod and
halibut banks, and when these are
located a survey of tbo numerous bays
and inlets on tho northern coast will
be commenced. The results of the
explorations will be of immense value
to our fishing industry, and a rapid
development of the same will follow
the inspector's report.

From Kootenai*•
An employee of Mr. T. F. Sinclair
arrived down from Kootenay yesterday. He reports that the weather, up
to the date of his departure, had been
*.er** favorable for out-door work, and
Mr. Sinclair expected to have the canal
finished by December 20th. Very
little snow haa fallen in the valleys in
the interior so far, and there haa been
no severe cold. At Golden City, where
he applied for a ticket to Westminster,
the station agont informed him that
tickets were not issued to thii point,
and the best that could be done was to
sell him a ticket to the Junction. Despite the man}* assurances of O.P.R.
officials that tickets can bo purchased
at any station for Westminster, this iB
another clear case in point to the contrary.

Last evening tho directors of the
Building Society met at the secretary's
office on Mary Street. Amongst
other business transacted, Saturday
22nd December was fixed for the next
drawing for an appropriation of $1000.
This will make the eighth, since tho
formation of the society in June 1887,
and shows good progress. Some conversation aroso respecting tho rumored
wish of some of tho shareholders, that
no moro of the "11" series of shares
should be issued, thus limiting the
first issue of shares to 260. As none
of the shareholders had communicated
formally to tho directors upon the subject, it waa finally resolved to postpone
the consideration of tbe proposal and
await further developments. As the
22nd December will witness a general
meeting for the drawing, probably
the question will be raised then by the
shareholders interested in the project.

The Vancouver World's Weitminster
correspondent says: ''While walking
down the street, I was stopped by the
foreman in the Johnny and Munday
case, who seemed anxious to meet
with the gentleman from the Columbia**. Mr. McClellan expressed himself in very forcible terma regarding
that paper a strictures on the jury. It
seems to me tltat both he ind his colleagues get off very lightly, I have
seen a jury discharged aa unfit to exercise their funotiom for a much
smaller offence. If jurymen insist on
acquitting prisoners when evidence is
overwhelming and there is really no
defence let up, they muit expect to
have hard things aaid of them."
Some of the irate jurymen did meet
with "the gentleman from the Columbian," but "took back water." Our
little hatchet" and our "conscious
rectitude" make up a combination
simply irresistible.

The Canadian Facile Feller*
Within the past weeka two letters
have reached tho oflico of The Com-
mercial from prominent merchants in
British Columbia containing complaints thnt tlio extortionate rates on
the C. P. R. from tho Pacific coast to
points in Manitoba and the territories
effectually block a trade being done
therein by British Columbians. In
both lottors the writers state that had
they rates in any way approaohing
those given to eastern Canadian shippers, they could do a profitable business in tho districts referred to. Evidently British Columbians are feeling
a littlo of tho discrimination under
which Manitoba groaned for sovcral
years. If thoy expect to have the
privileges which tho C. P. R. givo to
eastern shippers they will live iu disappointment until they aro iu a position to force such a concession. Thoy
will learn ere long, if indeed they have
uot already learnt, that tho C. P. R.
policy is to discourage trade growth in
tho west as muoh as possible and concentrate it in tho east. Onco they
have thoroughly realized this fact,they
will be able to understand why Manitoba is making such terrible sacrifice---,
to froc itself from tho monopoly
which thus discriminates against if,—

Herring's opera houso nover pro*
Bcuted u more attractive appearance
than it did this afternoon, not particularly because it contained several
scorcH of the prettiest youug ladies in
town, but because they, with the other
adornment**, natural and artificial,
contributed towards making the tout
ensemble something unusually picturesque and pleasing. The occasion for
all this attraction is the sale of work,
in aid of the bell tower fund of Holy
Trinity church, now going on. Gipsy
tents line the centre aisle on either
sido, and in these are displayed almost
everything imaginable in tho shape of
fancy and useful articles, besides
which is a dainty littlo confectionary
stand where anyone having a sweet
tooth can satisfy their tastes to
nicety. Perhaps tho prettiest things
about these tents are the lady
attendants, nt whose hands the
wares do not suffer iu selling. Attired
in the style of garments Gipsies are
supposed to have woru in the good old
days of the musty past, these pretty
damsels form a picture of perfection
that makes one wish he had lived in
the times when gipsies wore all so
handsome and dressed so well. A
large number of people visited the
Opera House during the afternoon
and the proceeds from the sale
were most encouraging. At 4 o'clock
tea was served and many enjoyed the
good things provided. This evening
the grand attraction will bo "Fairy

Interesting Interior Notes.
From an Occasional Correspondent.
Princeton, Nov. 12.—Packing from
Hope is over now for this season, the
lut pack train crossing the summit on
the tenth inst., breaking through some
five feet of snow for a distance of about
two milea. It ia likely the snow now
on the trail will remain, although some
of the weather-wise seem to think it
will disappear and leave the trail open
for travel with horses again; this is
hardly likely however.
Mining operations on both tho Similkameen und Tulameen Rivers came
to a sudden end about two weeks ago.
when a freshet ruined the wing dams
and put a stop to all work fn the beds
of those streams.
Discoveries of quartz nre reported,
but nothing definite is known as to
their real value. If assays, however,
are satisfactory, development work
will be commenced in the apring, when
thorough and practical tests will be
made.
Hydraulic mining would pay here.
There are miles of benches along tho
Similkameen, above Princeton, that
contain sufficient gold to almost pay
wages with pick and shovel, and which
would certainly give handsome returns
if operated on the hydraulic principle,
Tho difficulty of getting water nigh
enough to give the required pressure
seems, however, to deter men of small
means from taking up and operating
hydraulic claims.
Mr. W. Starrett, in charge of government work on the Hope trail, has
completed the season's work putting in
s.»mo new bridges and repairing the
trail as far oa KeromeoB. The condition of the trail has been moat satisfactory throughout the season and relief a credit on Mr. Starrett'a ability aa
auperintendant of the work.
Princeton is still without a post*
office. We were led to believe here
laat summor that an office would be
opened at this place; but, although
well-known aa an important and central point, and in spite of official assurance to that effect, nothing his yet
been done. The consequence is, mail
matter arrives by chance; if letters are
missing or delayed for months, complaint is useless, the only remedy being to grin and bear thia reault of official negleot as best wo can.
Game of all kinds, deer especially,
are plentiful, the various hunting par*
ties that visited the valley this fall met
with fair success, carrying away with
them numerous specimens of big horn
etc. The Similkameen must ere long
becomo famous as a resort for sportsmen.

la the momentous queation that haa

that depends largely upon whose boy
