icul congress is to be held in Clirist-
iatia in 1891.

with three lines of arc lamps separated hy two rows of trees, is snid to
be the best illuminated thoroughfare
in.tho world. The wires are under

. The population of Norway BhowBa
higher percentage of light eyes (97.-

Mr. Theodore Urban states that
he haB evidence that America was
settled about G50 years after the
deluge, and that the tribes that
sprang up had tools of metal as well
as of stone.
After Immersion in water lor

An eminent cartographer declares that the map of Africa is
chiingad by overy mail. Fresh geographical news from tho Dark Continent twioo mado necessary changes

compelled to take from the press a
large map of the Congo State for additions nnd corrections.
Eautiiquake Movement.—"There
in a great mistake," remarks a California astronomer, "as to tho actual
amount of movement of the earth in
an earthquake. In the Chabot Observatory this morning tho earth
moved a little less than a quarter of
nn inch, and in East Oakland, where
tho shock (that of July 31) was
heavier, it moved about 5-sixteonths
of an inch. An carthquako in
which, tho motion was a half-inch
would prove very disastrous, and yet
people do not hesitate to say that
they saw the earth move at least a
foot."
Electiucity and Life.-—Without conceding that "electricity is
lifo," it may bo stated as probable
that all forms of life are constantly
producing electricity. In soveral
water inhabiting-croatures—such as
the Torpedo, the Qymnotus and the
Silurus—the power of producing
electrical discharges ia strikingly
manifest. Several investigators havo
shown further that nerve-excitations
and muscular contractions of human
beings also give rise to feeble discharges, whilo Buff thought ho detected electrification produced by
plant life.
Light Lost in Windows.—The
loss of lit-ht in passing through glass
has beon tested by two physicists of
Berlin. A simple translucent, but
not transparent glass diminishes
tho light 27 per cent. - cathedral
glass, hoth white and with a ground
tint, 12 jj per cent,, plain white
Rhenish double glass, 10percent.;
and plain thin mirror glass, 10 per
oent. Ground glass with cut stars
and white background, such ns is
found in house fanlights, obstructed
GO per cent, of tho light; and plain
ground glass with the background,
40 per cont.
Permeability op Cements.—
Experience has shown that briok
tunnels and drains oan not be made
water-tight when exposed to conaiderablo pressure, as water is forced
through not only the bricks but tho
cements and mortars. Iu experiments last year by Mr. A, li. Francis, about fourteen gallons of water
per squaro foot of surface passed
through a thickness of nearly sixteen inches of cement in twenty-
four hours, under a pressure of
seventy-seven pounds per square
inch. Other engineers have concluded it is not practicable to build
a tight bulkhead of comont-laid
bricks when the pressure exceeds
sixty-four pounds per square inch.
Composition of Meteorites.—
As constituents of meteorites, Lock-
yor has found fourteen olements to
beof quite constant occurrence, nnd
eleven others to exist leas frequently
or in smallor quantities. Only hydrogen, nitrogen and carbon occur
in un elementary condition. Tho
hydrogen nnd nitrogen seem to be
occluded as gases by tho stones, nud
the carbon takes the forms of graphite nud tho diamond. Many of the
chemical compounds uro unknown
in terrestriul minerals, while, ou tho
other hand, common terrestrial substances—such ns freo quartz—aro
not found in tliu meteorites. Various
alloys of nickel nnd iron, with which
magnesium is always associated, oo*
cur; and n white or yellowish cry-
stallizablo compound of carbon with
hydrogen and oxygen exists, Other
meteoric minerals and lawrencite, a
protochlorido of iron: maskelynite,
having tho composition of labrador*
ite, nnd asmanito, a form of silica,
Compounds identical with terrestrial
minerals in composition and crystaU*
ographio character aro magnetic
pyrites, magnetite, chromite, nnd
vnritics of olivine and other silicates.

und the Bush party consented to a
knock-out fight with gloves. The
first and second rounds were tame:
Watson ondeavored to force the fighting, and in the 3rd round got badly
punished and knocked down. He was
winded iu tho fuurth, and Bush, nfter
pounding him heavily, knocked him

groggy in the fifth round and was soon
knocked out.

WON THE PRIZE.
Buffalo, Aug. 22.-The Buffalo
business men's uaociation offered a
prize about two years ago of 8100,000
for anybody who would invent a device which would utilize the power
wasted by the Niagara torrent. Several thousand plana were presented,
but wero never acted upon, because
tho offer was really a fake, none of the
money being subscribed, tnd aome of
the subscribers being worth loss than
they had signed for. The managers of
tbe association had a fit of consternation this afternoon when S. H. Palmer,
a practical mechanic employed at the
New York central car wheel works,
put in a demand for the $100,000 prize,
on the ground that ho had a device

Palmer's machine is simply an endless
stool belt, 200 feot lone and 20 feet
wido, each link of which ii a tiny turbine wheel. When set croaswiae to
tho current it moves with resistless
force. His working model is fixed in
a little iron box that a child could carry, and yet it was able to generate one
horso powor in the slow current in the
Niagara at Bloek Rock to-day. Palmer talks of suing the prize offerers if
they do not pay.

GERMAN ADVICE.
Belin, Aug. 23.—Tho North German Qazzette Bays in reference to the
recent preaa comments on tho Emin
Bey relief expedition and the utility of
holding an indignation mooting denouncing it: "Our friendship for
England forms the weightiest security
for the-peace of Europo and our chief
policy is to strengthen tbat friendship
with England. For tho two nations
to estrange each other by publio manifestations, is to play into tho hands of
their opponents abroad,"
IMPERIAL PARLIAMENT.
London, Aug. 23.—There was another stormy scene iu tho house of
commons to-night when the Irish estimates had reached tho stage nf a vote
for Irish prisons. In tho eat ly stages
of thu discussion the Irish members
spoke bitterly of tho treatment of Mr.
Conybearo, member of parliamont for
Cornwall, uow confined in Londonderry jail, who contracted a loathsome
skin disease aoon after entering tho
prison. Mr. Balfour replied that as
far aa thii carie waB concerned, altogether too much fuss had been made
over it, when the trivial naturo of tho
priaoner's disorder was concerned. As
a matter of fact, at thia moment Mr.
Couybeare's health was as good as any
of the members now championing his
cause upon thnt floor. That gontleman
had been oured of hia terrible a ffliction
without any greater effort or medical
skill than the prescription of a bath.
The previous occupant of Mr. Cony-
beare's cell had been a man named
Fadden, who had not been affected
with the disease from which the prisoner suffered. He had directed a
thorough examination of tho prison to
be made, and thia revealed no trace of
disoaso, either in tho pris.-n or among
tbo priaonetB. Mr. Alexander Blaiue,
member for South Armagh, lold of his
experiences in Londonderry jail. As
the debater progressed, the Irish members br-.caniQ more excited, ftiid when
Mr. Thomas Sexton declared that
Londonderry jail was a peat houae
whero Irish prisoners were murdered,
his Parnellite sympathisers broko in
with cries of, "thero is tho assastn,"
many of them going so fur as to point
their fingerB nt tho Irish secretary.
Mr. Balfour rose in his place and hurled defiance at his dctmctois. Ho said
that long familiarity with sueh nttacki
had taught him to treat them with contempt. Mr. Thomaa W. Russell, tho
member for South Tyrone, movod that
a sanitary engineer bo appointed to inspect the Irish prisons. Mr. Parnell
declared that tho Irish prisoners wero
half starved. Ho added hia own testimony to those of tho Irish members
who had spoken, from au mtimnto acquaintance with the fact uf the unsanitary condition of the prisons. The
debate was protracted and acrimonious,
and at ita conclusion the vote waa
adopted by 113 to Gil.
Strange Disappearance.
It is learned from Capt. McPhadden,
of Moodyville, that ou Wednesday
evening lut Capt. Gus Julieu, of tho
tug Leonora, disappeared and has not
been seen lince, and the Biippoaition
ia that he is drowned. Capt. McPhadden states that on Wednesday ovening
Julien was seen in a very inebriated
conditiou in the Moodyville hotol.
This waa about 11 o'clock in tho even*
ing. No quarrel or dispute is known
to have taken place. About tho hour
mentioned on that evening Julien
went out, and no trace of him having
been discovered since, it is presumed
ho must have fallen into llio water off
the wliarf and been drowned, A num*
ber of men have been sot to work to
drag for tho body, but as yet without
any results. Capt. Julien, prior to his
disappearance on Wednesday evening,
drew 800 duo him, and apcnl part of
the sum vory liberally after the receipt of it. Capt. McPhaddou thinks
that thero ia no otber feasible way of ,
accounting for the man's disappearance except that or a watery grave,—

We have heard it suggested that,
considering tho fact tliat nl! the
sidewalks on Columbia struct will
shortly have to be renewed, it would
be a good idea for the city council
to investigate the question of cement
sidewalks as a substitute for the
wooden article, with lhe object of
requiring property holders to lay
cement pavements instead of plank-
walks opposito their buildings.
Thero is no doubt that the improvement to tho busiuess portion of tho
city, so far ns appearance and even
durability is concerned, from carrying out this idea would bo considerable' but it is u question upon
which tho property owners themselves would bo entitled to bo heard,
owing to the extra first cost of laying the cement sidewalk. An unequalled cement sidewalk, wc have
been informed can bo laid for 35
conts per foot, guaranteed for five ,
years.     For  the  ordinary   plank
the
sidewalk wo have not figures to
hand, but nearly every one knows
that it cau bo laid much cheaper
than the figure abovo quoted, although, as between cement and the
narrow smooth planking which has
been laid opposite some of the now
blocks, tho .difference would not be
so great. The cement pavement in
front of tiio Masonic and Oddfellows' blook demonstrates fairly the
advantages possessed by that sort of
u sidewalk. Tho council, at any
rat-:, can do no harm by looking
info t he matter before tho relaying of
the Cjlumbin street sidewalks, and
mi'ihr. inaugurate *.i material im-
pri vement in soveral respects in tho
hm in as part of the town. While
on :hf. sidewalk question, a transition to that of the streets is a most
natural and easy one, and in this
connection our attention has been
called to the desirability, on grounds
of great utility and ultimate economy, of tho city possessing a steam
rock crusher (whicli we believo
Would cost from ubout 8300 to,
$5(0), so that small stones, coarse
gravel, etc., might be ground up into
a uniform and most useful macadam
for tbe streets, thus keeping them
in serviceable condition, clean and
handsome looking the year round.
We commend this suggestion also to
tho consideration of the city solons.
Once   in   r.   while nn American
editor, apparently in want of somo
"stuffing''for Ins columns, allows his
errant pen to scratch off somo such
stuff as this from the Tacoma Lettyer:
"Om* friends in British Oolumbia
will realize before many years lmve
passed that thoy committed a political plunder when thoy aurrondored
the autonomy of separate provincial
government and joined the Dominion
union.   We say this because wo are
satisfied that in the natural order
of political events the time must
come when tlie people of British
Columbia will desire to bo a self-
governing people, either ns a separate   republic   or  as a part of tho
United   .States*.    When   that time
comes tlie entangling alliance with
tho rest  of  the provinces will add
greatly to tho difficulty of tho situation.   No doubt England would willingly   allow   a   separation at any
lime it should   be desired by this
colony, but Canada would vehemently oppose such a movement,   The
doctrine of manifest destiny in the
march of nations plays an important
part, and no student cf tho geography
of this country will fail to recognize
tho  force   of  our assumption that
British Columbia, sooner or  later,
will be forced to detach horsolf from
thu Dominion."   While acknowledging the implied compliment in our
cotemporary's conjecture that British Oolumbia may soon want to set
up as a separate republic, thero iB
no sense in the remark that tho people of this provinco havo "committed
a political  blunder when they surrendered tlio autonomy of separato
provincial government and joined
tiio Dominion union,"   When wo
joined the Dominion union wo never
surrendered our autonomy, but our
provincial     government,    strictly
speaking, began at that date, British
Oolumbia   prior    to  confederation
being under tho rather crude government of  a crown colony.   British
Columbia joined the Dominion union
deliberately, and for her good, and
so it has proved, most emphatically,
and our American frionds needn't
condole with us about having made
a "political blunder," or blast their
reputations as seers by foretelling
what   is most unlikely to como to
pass.   But when our cotemporary
gets vagarizing about "manifest destiny," a little further on, we would
like   to   commend  to its attention
Josh Billings' nrticlo on that rather
uncertain quantity.   Josh says in
effect tliat "manifest destiny iz just
what you male it," and thoro is great
truth in the remark.    Our Yankee
cousins will have their hands full
hewing out their own destiny for
some timo to come, nnd may safely
and   profitably leave us   to   do the
same, which we aro doing as a part
of the great Dominion of which we
nre proud as comprising "the greater
half of the continent" in area, nnd
whioli   is    becoming  greater  and
greater every day in all that goes to
constitute   a   freo and   prosperous
commonwealth.    Nevertheless, we
desire   that our rohitions with tho
great republic on our southern border may bo mutually as friendly and
advantageous, if not moro so, than
iu the past.

The annoying farco that is beint**
perpetrated in Behring Sea by the
U. S. revenue cutter Hush, of hailing  British  scalers, stealing their
ship's    papers,   seal    skins,    und
implements, and committing them
to    a    "prize    crew"     with    instructions (uniformly  disregarded)
to   proceed   to  Sitka and  thoro
bo forfeit to their pirates, would bo
altogether too tiresome and serious
tt joke to be borne with the equanimity that it is by those whoso busi-
'    ness   is   ruined and their season's
work made to pass for naught, were
it  not for the repeated assurances
we have from tho apparently rather
tardy acting Imperial government
that it is moving in bhe matter, not
nny too   precipitately, but perhaps
wisely, and   that before   long tlie
difficulty   will  bo settled  by arbitration, to the sut-jsfaction of everyone interested.    While the Imperial
authorities   have declined to allow
tho Paoific -squadron to interfere in
Behring Sea for tho direct protection of British sealers, it Is gratifying
to noto, by tho despatches, that they
are  not   overlooking  the damages
which our sealers aro suffering, but
havo   requested   a full schedule of
these   from the Dominion government, nud   in   due  time   will, no
doubt,  demand their payment,  to
tho uttermost farthing, from the nation whioh hns authorized these unwarrantable  piracies on the high
sous, to   bolster  up a tremendous
monopoly—the Alaska Commercial
Oompany—which would  thus   appear to dominate tho United States
govrrnment, as the latter actually
seizi.-B its own sealers as well aa ours,
in the intorest of   the corporation
mentioned, and   it  is  a matter of
uotcriity that the most intelligent
public opinion in the republic condemns tho attitude and actions of
tho   administration  in  tho whole
Behring Sen question.   Such being
the catie, and tho position which tlie
Arauriuan authorities have chosen
to a. si* me in tho matter being utterly u.it nable in the light of investigation and roason and in the face of
determined protest, wo may well bo
Hove   that,   through   tho  pressure,
which it in the duty of the Imperial
authorities   now to bring to bear,
without tho loast temporizing or uncertainty, n spoody and satisfactory
settlement oE tho difficulty will bo
effeotcd by arbitration.   Speedy satisfaction is what is wanted in this
ease, not that long drawn hopo deferred that tuuknth the heart, and
(he whole man, sick, and ultimately
weakens faith in tlie most cherished
institutions.  Wo trust that, becauso
the Imperial government are prosecuting  this  matter pencoably aud
dignifiedly, they will none tho less
do so with firmnoss, neatness, and
despatch.

Coinloff Process;
The other day the Treasury Department
■■ Issuoti a circular proposing to ship free-of
oxpn:.-;** charges to persona deslrinjr thora
nickels nud pennies incortaiu quantities on
recon'tof their face value. The offer suggested some iuquirlos lu regard to tho coat
of theso coins and how It happens that the
Oovui'iitnont can Bhip them (it par valuo and
pay express charges upon thom.
The story of tho nickel Is an lutoresting
ono, uuya tho Now York Star. Very tow
peoplo in this country Imaglno how much
pi-oiu Oueio Sam makes outof tho stamping of these small coins. Tho actual cost
of a nickel to tho Government Is not much
more than three-quarters of n cont. Formerly tho metal was fixed, planned and prepared for uso in tho National work-shops
at tho various mints, but now tho motul is
purchased nnd prepared by outsidora under
contract. All the Government doos now is
to put Its stamp upou tho blanks and than
gather In its profit on tholr circulation.
Thu total amount of thoso coins Issued In
a year will average about 9000,000, and as
very tow of thom over return to pluguo tho
Government, tho actual profit to tho National Treasury can bo easily calculated.
Niokch nnd pennies aro, of courso, redeemable by the Treasury in othor monoy when
n demand is made, but thia occurs only oc-
k casionally, and thon tho coins aro soutto
the mint, cleaned up and sont into circulation again.
It is about tbo samo story in reference
j to pennies.   Tho Government buya tho
metal out of whieh thoy are mado ready
■ for uso and paya so muoh a pound for it,
when It Is cut and prepared for Btamplng.
Then tho mint puts tho legal mark upon
tho coins and thoy aro turned out by tho
million. What do thoy cost! Woll, ovory
cunt thnt is coined brings in a profit of
tliiec-qit flora of a cont to the Government. More pennies than nickels are ro-
tu.'iicd lo tho Troaaury in exchange for
other monoy, but they aro sent promptly to
tho mint, and soon get into tho hands of tho
public onco again. A bronze penny or a
iiinl-el five-cent pieco does not wear out as
rapidly us a dollar bill.
But thoro is still another source of profit
to the Government in tho issuing of theso
'small coins. Una of the most export of
mon nt tho Sub-Treasury in Wall streot declared a dny or two sinco that thoro aro
still in existence somewhere, floating about
tho country, bunched up in old stockings or
In tho hands of curiosity collectors, ovor
100,000,000 of tho old-fashioned copper
. conts, about 20,000,0110 of copper-nickel
cents, nearly 500,000,000 of tho present
issue of bronze pennies, 35,000,000 of nickel
B-cenb pieces and about 200,000,000 of nickel
5-eont pieces. Tho total valuo of theso outstanding minor coins is, put In round numbers,*: 120,000,000, aud ovory dollar of this
is tibsoluto profit totho Government.
Tho coinago of silver ploccs is dono mainly by the National mints, and, strange to
suy, tlioro is more profit In the work than
any thing elso that tho mint does. Undor
the present law tho Treasury Is required to
buy and coin at least 13,000,000 worth of
silvor into dollars. This 13,000,000 worth of
silver makes noarly $3,250,000, so that tho
profit on the monthly purchase nnd coin-
ago of silvor dollui'3 is fully 8750,000. So
tho profit on tho silver dollars, you see, is
ubout 50,000,000 a year or moro, and adding
to it the profit on the pennies and nickels
brluge it up to noarly $10,000,000. Of course*
thoro must bo takon out of that tho expen*
sea of iho mint, but thoy are a comparatively snv.vll sum,
' Tlio proccBS of coining silvor pieces is an
interesting one, and is tho samo practically
• for dimes and for dollars. Tho silver bull*
I ion Is first melted and run iuto burs. These
\ in turn aro run through immenso rollers
[ and liattened out to thoUiicknoasof lho
[ coin. Thoso silver strips aro thon passed
f through a machine whioh out3 thom into
F the propor sixo for tho prfiBsos, the strips
} flrat having been treated with a kind of tat*
■ low to prevent thoir boing scratched in
thoir pasaago through tho cutters, Tho
i silver pieces aro thon put Into the feeder of
tho printing presses, und nro fed to tho die
I by automatic machinery.   Aa the smooth
I piece;) aro pressed bet woon thanonttprous
printing dies they roe-ivo tho1 fettered and
figured impression in a maimer similar to
that of papor pressed upon aforrabf type;
at the samo timo tho pieco is expanded in a
[ Blight dogreo and tho small con ligations
|m'0 cut into Us rim. J."lio tiiachiuu drops
'tho completed coin into, a receiver and it is
j ready for the counter's hand,
Tho instrument used by the counter ia
i not a complicated machine by any means,
aB ono might suppose. It is a simple cop-
■ por-coverod tray, having rniaed ridges running across its surfaco ut a distance apart
, thooxtiotwidthofadlino. From tho recoi vor
, tho money is dumped on to this board or
tray, and as it Is shaken rapidly by tho
counter, tho pieces settle down into the
spnct'3 botween the ridges, AU thoso spaces
being filled, tho surplus is brushed back
into 1 ho rccoivor, and thu counter has ex*
, aetly 1,250 dimes, £125, on UiL' tray, which
numbor is required to fill tho spaces.  Tho
i tray Is then emptied into boxes, and tho
money Is ready for shipment.
' Tho dime does uot pass through tho
weigher's hands, as doos the coin of a larger
l denomination. One and ono-hnlf grains
is allowed for variation or "tolerance" in
1 all silvor coins from ono dollar down, and
t tho doviatlon from tho standard in the ton-
cent pieces is so trifling that tho trouble of
weighing coins of tbls denomination is dis*

Vrotnlhe Enter Inr,
Mr. M. M. Mowat, of tho  fisheries
department, returned from   Yalo  nud
'  North Band a few daya ago, whore ho
spent the last 10 weeks doing  special
duty for the department.   It had been
reported that the Indians were  catching salmon in Yale canyon  and  ship-
{ling thom to the  const.   If this  un-
awful businoss was being carried   on,
it stopped immcdiatly on Mr. Mownt'a
Arrival, and no further attempts  wore
made during hia Btsy.   Mr.   Mowat
repoiti that the run  of aockoyes  up
the Fraser has boen something  im*
mense, and tho Indians had no  trouble in securing ull thoy  required  for
the winter's use,   The Indiana congregate from far nnd near and do their
fishing in Yale canyon, using dip nets
with whioh they wero able  to  bring
out 8 or 10 tish nt oach dip, so plentiful were the lish.    The water  in   the
Interior ia very low for this season of
the year, and, consequently, the  conditions nre vory favorable for salmon
spawning.   The lish, owing to tho low
water, cannot got vory fnr up tho
streams and nre forced to spawn  only
a short distance inland from the principal riven.   In consequence  of  this
the ova will bo deeply covered   with
water when tho fall  rains  begin, and
will thus bo protected against damage
by frost when the cold  weather sets
in.
On September first, the rato on parcels from British Columbia to Great
Britain will bo reduced to thirty cents
per pound; from tho remainder of
Canada it will bo 25 cents per pound,
a reduction of 15 cents for Britisli
Columbia, the territories and Manitoba; 10 conts for Ontario, and 5 cents
for Quebec and tho eastern provinces.
The limit of weight will bo increased
co 5 pounds. On the samo duy an arrangement with tho imperial post
oflico takes effect, by which Canadians
can send parcels to any country with
wliich England exchanges for tho British rate plus tho Canadian rate to England.
I-art'C Earnings.
Few persons, evon in Westminster
have any idea idea of the wages earned
by fliliorincu during tho past couplo
of months. Those fiahormon who were
lucky enough tj obtain licenses mado
us much money in four weeks' fishing
us it well paid mechanic makes in a
year or fifteen mouths. Thu highest
iHiiuiiitt earned by any fisherman on
tlio river was made by all Indian who
fished for Ewen's cannery, lu ono
month this man caught 14,000 lish, for
which Mr. Ewen paid him in cash $1,*
■100- mi average of ever §50 per day
for every day's Hairing. Other fishermen earned from $000 to $1,200 during the samo -period. Those figures aro
enough to excite tho envy of even n
newspaper man.

an excellent brass band, which accompanies tho chief of the tribo wherever
ho moves front one poilit to lho
other. Tho band wna mustered on
deck this morning ns tho bteamer passed the river front and played a num-
of lively nir3 as a parting salute to tiilicums who remained behind.
Westminster vs. Vancouver.
The fourth cricket match played
this season between Vancouvor and
Westminster cricket clubs, came off
to-day at Hastings. Tho weather was
all that could bo desired and the
ground was is in good condition. The
Westminster team was composed of
Coulthard, Rev. Mr. Irwin, Rev. P.
Worids, Dockrill, Raymond, Lewis,
Miles, Bramah, Brine, Wilson and
Read. Vancouver had a strong eleven
on tho field. The terminal men went
first and woro easily disposed of for
40 runs. Westminster's mon then
wont to the wickets and mado a total
of 42 runs beforo tho ttmth wicket fell,
At 4:.I0 o'clock Vancouver's second
innings was still unfinished, so it is
almost a certainty Westminster will-
win tlio match on tho first innings.

Tho Fraser River hatchery ia being
got into readiness for the reception of

be completed by tho 1st prox. Mr.
Max Mowat expects to begin the work
of -dripping salmon for their spawn on

pared to commence operations ou that
dat". The tish uro running up Hurri-
sun liver in millions, nnd, although tho
wator is high, tho work is expected to

this year. Should heavy rains, howovor, increase tho volume of water
now passing out of the lako, the atrip-
ping will be rendered much moro difficult and necessarily tho work will be
slower. Mr. Mowat intends to place
10,000,000 salmon oggs inthe hatchery
this season, and that establishment
has been prepared to receive tliis number.

Tlio Mainland Guardian is no more.
Sundry rumors for tho past week or
two, coupled with tliefacfctlmt the &'hb*'-
dian oi lhe Mainland failed to respond to tho roll-call tins morning,
justify ua in oonoluding that another
old laudmark has succumbed to tho
march of timo. Started on its career
in Auguat of '09, for just twenty yeara
has the Mainland Guardian sentineled
lho banks of the noble Frasor and discoursed somi-wcokly and variable
harmony for tho benelit and delectation
of the lie„'ea of tho royal cily nnd vicinity. The exit of tho Guardian
from tho stago of sublunary oxisteuco
was almost pathetic. Last Wednesday morning it appeared with tho ububI
flush of health on its cheek. No last
farewell, no touching valedictory,
gavo premonition of what was so seen
to bo. This morning the dull coppery
glare of its head-lines lookod sullenly
upward from tho printers' "hell-box,"
doomed never again to wed with the
extra-calendered, double-demi, cream-
laid, 45-lb,, No. 4 "news", dedicated
thenceforth to be the bride of Truth,
Died the Guardian like Sir John
Mooro, and its obsequies wero similar.
"Not a drum waa heard, not a funeral
noto," etc. We havo hoad the unkind
remark Wdo by n wag that "the
Guardian wrestled with truth all iti
life, but that Truth got it at last."
Hiitdemortu-isnil nisi bonam, Tho
Guardian had its faults of courso, but
in its wuy it wus loynl to tho oity of ita
adoption; Mr. J. K. Suter, the editor, who has bceu connootcd with
British Columbia journalism for nearly thirty years, nnd withal has wielded
nn ablo and trenchant pen, retires tin-
ally, wo understand, from tho news-
papor business, to onjoy the well-
earned leisure of his riper years.
William Campbell, ur Simms I'ound on
Hie I'nilrh'   With Ills   Keck
Urokcii,
Mr. Coroner Ferris received a din*
putch from Chilliwack this morning,
announcing that William Campbell,
J. P., of Sumas, had been found dead
on Sumas Prairio yesterday morning
at 10 o'clock. Tlio despatch stated
that tho deceased's neck is supposed
to be brokon presumably from a fall
from a horse's back, but as tho body
had not beon examined by a medical
expert nothing positive was known hb
to tho exact cause of death. Mr. Ferris loft for Sumas by tho 1 o'clock
train to hold an inquest, and at tho
Mission he was joined by Dr. Boding-
ton, who will make the necessary
medical examination, Tho sudden
and unexpected end of Mr. Campbell
created much comment nud many surmises in Westminster to-day, whero
tho deceasod was woll known, but ns
details concerning tho accident aru so
inoagro tho theories regarding his
death cannot bo considorcd of any
valuo. Tho deceased was a largo and
wealthy farmer and hud been in tho
provinco for many years. Ho leaves
a wifo and family behind tn mourn
his untimely end.
The ('mut' ticnaoa.
On September first the game season
opens, and then tho crack of iho rifle
and tho bang of the shotgun will bu
continuously heard throughout tho
land. Game is reported to ho very
plentiful this year, aud as a consequence tho sport ia certain to bo good.
Tho gamo laws provide that duck may
bo killed from Sopt. 1st to March 1st;
quail and cock pheasants must not bo
killed or trapped beforo October 1st,
1800, on the mainland; geose, partridge,
pcuirio chicken, otc, maybo killed
and trapped from Sept. 1st to February Ut; deer, elk, reindeer, cariboo,
mountain goat, mouutain sheep and
hare are in season from Sopt. 1st to
January 10th, Thoso aro the chief
points the sportsman is called upon to
bear iu mind, but there is nothing in
tho act to prevent tho ardent. Nimrod
from shooting wagon loads of boar,
wolf, mountain lion, cougur, panther,
wildcat, grizzlies and rattlesnakes
during any mouth of tho year.
titl'iesc Inunl-rrnttioit.
The department of finance nt Ottawa, a fow days ngo, forwarded to tho
provincial treasurer of Britisli Columbia a cheque for §9,000, being the pro*
vinco's share of tho revenue derivable
last year from the tax ou Chinese immigration. Under tho statute British
Columbia receives one-fourth of the
collections from the Chinese poll tax.
The total collections from this source
of revenue amounted to #38,400, representing 7<>8 persons. Since tho act
came into forco on September 1,1885,
to Juno 'A0,1889, tho total number of
Chinese arrived in tho country wub 1,*
51U. mado up uh follows: 1885*80,
204; 1880-87, 124; 1887-88,' 290;
1888-89, 994. Tlto latter number
shows a tremendous increase over tho
previous year, due, of courso, to tho
exclusion at;l being iu effect in tho
United States. Thero is a deecrep*
ancy between the number from whom
tho poll tax w.ib actually collected and
the number reported as having actually been brought frnm China. This is
duo to the fact that undcv tho law Chinese diplomats, professional men and
students aro exempt from paying the
850 tax, and 112 Chinese camo in un*
der this exemption. From information which has reached the customs
department thero is little doubt but
that many of those who have paid tho
tax have quietly slipped across the;
lines into tho United Statos and made
their homes there.
A Splendid Display*
In D. S. Curtis' show window, on
Columbia Btreet, may be seen tho fine
lot of bottled fruit which Mr. Thomas
Cunningham, of this city, will sond to
tho Toronto exhibition, on tho 28th
inat. Tho fruit, which wbb raised in
the famous Pelham Btreet gardens, and
skilfully preserved by Mr. D. S. Curtis, druggist, comprises the following
samples of British Columbia horticulture : Pears, peaches, peach plums,-—
7 varieties, apricots, crab applos, prunes
~-4 variotiea, grapes—4 varieties, cher-
lies*—3 varieties, currants--2 varieties,
raspberries--3 varieties, blackberries
and gooseberries. Hundreds of people
during the day wero attracted to the
show window by tho tempting display
of luscious fruit in tho transparent
jars and liquid, aud if Mr. Cunningham's exhibit does nut carry off a con*
sidernblo numbor of first prizes at the
Toronto fair, it will not bo tho fault cf
the fruit, fur a finer display it would be
almost impossible to imagine. Mr,
Cunningham's enterprising nnd successful efforts in horticulture, agriculturo, aud the improvement of livo
atock, as woll as the practical interest
ho takes iu making known to tho
world the capacities of tho provinco in
theso respects, are deserving of the
highest commendation. Wo hopo to
seo many moro emulating his oxamplo,
and tho "garden of tho province" will
soon bo filled with u prosperous population, and tho royal city becomo tlie
centro of onu of the greatest fruit raising and agriculture districts on the
continent, iu addition to all its other
advantages and industries.
