NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is Leliuved that tho new Irish
University bill foreshadowed by Mr,
Balfour will provide for a special
charter and a separate endownraent
for a Catholic univorsity, completely
independent of existing institutions.
The government's concession on this
point is likely to strain the relations
between the Parnellites und the
Radicals.—Ex.
In a recent sermon u Wostern
ariti-tobneco clergyman put the matter in this way :---"It is well understood, my brethren, that wo shull
continuo to do in tho next world
what wo most enjoy doiny in this
world.. Therefore those who smoko
in this world will smoko in tho world
to como, you, they will smoke with
thu tiro that quuncheth not," This
is an original as well wi startling
exegesis, remarks an exchange,
A*i intnrcsting innovation in tho
mctiidd ot catching cod has just
been made the by Fronch fi-shormon
coasting oil" Newfoundland. Thoy
catoh largo periwinkles, romovo the
shells, and use the creatures for bait.
Tlio cod, it is said, havo bitten eagerly at tho new bait, and the owners
of the French vessels have caught
fish so fust that they wero able to
sail for France in tho first week of
July, instead of October us usual,
In England tho whelk has long
been used for tho samo purpose*
Sunset glows, similar to thoso
which were after the Krakato eruption of 1883, have recently been
noted in Now York State, and also
in the Sandwich Islands. At the
same timo remarkable conditions
have manifested themselves ou one
portion of the surfaco of the snn,
which appears to ho tho centre vof
something liko volcanic activity.
The glows of 1883 nnd 1884 have
been attributed to volcanic dust
arising from the Krakatou explosion. Perhaps those of last month
are due to an eruption on tho sun.
POOE LEGITIME.
Says the Mail: Tho triple alliance
between Germany, Austriim-Hun-
gary, nnd Italy Las virtually became
a quadruple one, Great Britain hav*
ing announced her friendliness to it,
nnd formally declared that she finds
in it a guarnnteo of European peace.
Russsta and France, therefore, are
the only two great powers nt present
free to create a disturbance. But
even if nn alliance between them for
mischievous purposes were possiblo
they would rjcarcely daro to face tho
extraordinary military and naval
combination which now controls tho
situation.
The following Las more than a
local application : "Speaking about
judges," remarked an attorney,
"Judgo Garry is the man that understands his business. They were securing a jury in his court the othor
day, and all tho lawyers were talking at onco. Judge Garry sat back
in his chair and let 'em rattle on,
whon suddenly an old German got
up in the jury-box and said: -Shudge,
I vunt ter go home.' 'You can't;
you'ro on tlie jury.' 'Veil, I don't
vant tor shtop on dor jury. I understand not vhut dor lawyers say,'
-Well, nobody olsedoes. Sit down,
you ato tlio right kind of n juryman."
A few days ngo, says an exchange,
it was impossible to find a Protestant
minister in Watorbury, Conn., a city
of 30,000 inhabitants, to perform a
marriage ceremony. S. II. Piatt, of
that ojty, whom we take to bu the
Rev. S. II. Piatt, uow engaged in
the practice of medicine, is out
in a card, in which ho asks:
"Would it not bo well to so arrange
vacations that there should bo one
minister, at least, constantly in a
city of this swo1" No other profession or public function is so misused
as that of tlie ministry, Tho physician who would go away without
making arangements for his patients
would not long retain a practico."
It is reported from Milan that the
Baropesis Oautoni, a young lady of
ninotemi, celebrated for hur beauty
as Well as for her startling originality, has announced her intention of
undertaking a journoy into tho interior of Africa. Sim will bo accompanied by a relative, an elderly lady
belonging to tho Austrian aristocracy
and attended by several male nnd
female servants. An ollicer in the
Italian army has undertaken to lead
tho expedition, and is already busily
engaged in making arrangements,
Tho party will set out on November
1, and their tour will last a yoar.
Aftor a call at Aden, Masownh will
i>e visited, and thence tho Baroness
with hor followers will penetrate into the interior of tho continent.
Mr. Abrnm S. Hewitt, ex-Mayor
of Now York, was interviewed the
other day, on his return from Europe, on the subject oftho proposed
World's Fair in 1892. He appeared
to bo anything but favourably impressed witll tho scheme, and ridiculed the ido of asking foroign nations to exhibit thoir goods in tho
United States ut a timo when the
country hns a trado policy designed
ti keep foroign products out of it.
"If wo invite foreign nations to join
in the exhibition*,- ho said, "we
ought not to legislate to exclude
their goods, If we do they won't
conic." Mr, Hewitt's idea wns that
tho exhibition should bo an Amor*
loan display—one designed to show
the progress of tho three Americas.

A liltEAT FltAUl).
Bujtalo, N. Y., Sept. O.—The
ovening Neirn to-dny publishes a com*
(ih-tii t'Xpmuiru of Graham's alti-god
trip over the falls last Sunday. The
affair allowed such myatery and bore
such palpable evidence of fraud, that
tho News sot out ti prove it another of
those BCiiBtttional fakes, Tho oxpos*
ure in Biibstauco is: Frank T. Hug*
(■arty, stenographer of the surrogate
court, of this city, states that hu wai
lislnng irt the river near Lisallo last
Snturdny. At Lasnllo he mot Garrot
J. .Stanley, who enid he was employed
by Graham to cut loose his barrel on
the following morning and send him
ovor tho falls in it. Haggarty pro-
prosed to Stanley to accompany him
nnd help him to rcleaso the barrel,
Stanley consented and tho men went
in a boat down tj Prospect point, just
above the falls. There they met a
man whom Haggarty thinks is Db*
veia, the theatrical mauagor. He
also Baid ho was watching for the barrel. Thoy also mot Constable Horn,
who was said to havo taken Graham
ont of the barrel bolow thu falls. Horn
and Stanley remained with Haggarty
till after the hour at which it is claimed
the barrel with Graham in it came
over tho fallo. "Wo saw no barrel,"
Baid Haggarty, "nor did any go over
tho falls all that time. Stanley wns
with mo constantly until wo returned
10 LusuUo. Wo did not leave tho
point till nearly 7 o'clock, We did
uot see Graliatn all all. It is my belief he und the barrel were below tho
fulls and never cmne up above. Below tho falls he entered it nnd was
pushed off into the river."
As Graham claims to have been sent
over the falls at aquarter to six o'clock
Sunday, thu barrel must have passed
Prospect Point boforo that hour, and
whilo the men were watching for it.
That it did not do ao and that Stanley,
who wns to havo cut it looso, did not
seo it nt all, is pretty conclusive proof
tho whole thing wus n "fake." Hag*
gnrry is a perfectly trustworthy geu tie-
man, and his ntatemunt oan bo implicitly relii'd upon.

COL. O'BRIEN'S OPINION.
Toronto, Sent, 5.—Col. O'Brien, in
a letter to the Mail, snys: "I look
upon any decision regarding tho validity of tho Jesuits' catntea na a matter
of minor importance. The prinoiplo
of aggression that it contains is the
theory to be watched and fought
ngain&t, and there should be no stay uf
action to that end. Remember the
hare and the tortoise. The paper saya
the ministers did not hesitate to disallow the Manitoba charters which on
their own admission were ultra vires
on the theory that to let the settler
hnve competitive lines would be to injure the Canadian Pacific monopoly,
enacted by law in other parts of the
Northwest and therefore to prejudice
tho general welfare. They wore asked
to do nothing so sweeping in tho present instance.
THE  OTTAWA MATCHES.
Ottawa Sept. 6.—The weather today at the Dominion rifle association meeting, although somewhat
dull, was not unfavorable for good
shooting. "Yesterday's fish tail wind

steamboat collision.
New York, Sept. 5,—During a
dense fog this morning the iron steam
yacht Electra, owned by Commodore
Gerry, of the New York yacht club,
while anchored in the East river, off
23rd street, waa run into by the Fall
river steamboat, Providence, The Providence was loaded with passengers
and for some time a panie ensued but
it was quickly allayed when the steamboat backed ont in tho stream aud it
was found that what damage had been
done waB nbove the water Hue. Thu
stanchions and flooring of the middle
deck had been carried away and two
state rooms had their fronts completely
ripped off by the bowsprit of the Electra. No one reported hurt In the
collision the yacht heeled over and considerable damage waa doue to her by
lho water pouring in.
a lively bridal tour.
Denver, Col,, Sept 3.—A novel
bridal tour ia whut n newly married
couple ia at the present time enjoying.
Several months ago Charles Fish, a
olerk in a San Franciaco store, whilo
attempting to board a ferryboat made
n misstep and fell over some ropes into
the arms of Mary Bathburn, daughter
of n retired merchant. With an apology the young man departed. A few
nights afterword the pair met at a
party, and from that time on a friendship sprang up between the two. Finding that tho girl's parents wero opposed
to tho match, the couplo a few weeks
lator eloped and were married at Sne-
rnmeuto. The young man having only
$33, told Ida wife if thoy could immaj-o
to roach New York all would be well,
as he had wealthy relatives there. The
fp'rl took off her drosses and adorned
lorself in male attire. Their adventures since then would fill a book
From Sacramento the pair beat thoir
way over the Central Pacific road by
riding on freight trains and on the
truoks of passenger conches. A weok
ago Ogden was reached, and being desirous to aee Rome of Colorado's scenery, the Rio Grand waB selected. After
having beon put off half a dozen trains
tho couple reached Denver. As it
happened tho Union Pacific ran a grand
army excursion train out that night,
and by strategy the couple managed
to go on the train in the capacity of
Sorters. By to-night Omaha will have
een reached, nnd it is more than probable that the pair will get through to
Chicago, reaching New York aomo
time next month, Tho girl ia extremely pretty and scarcely nineteen,
while her husband ia throo yoars her
eenfor.    ^^^^^^^^^
The O.P.R. freight department decided to-day to make a reduction of 10

TRYING RUSSIA.
London, Sept. 5.—Littlo by little
the German army is being increased.
Since the opening ot tho yenr four
corps have been added, and now the
emperor has given orders for the formation of a fifth, with headfiuutters at
Brumbergon theeusternfroniior. This
move is evidently intended na 1. reply
tu Russia,' whoioonitinucs to muss her
troops upon her western frontier, and
in this way the Emperor Willinm serves
notice upon the czar that ho doi s not
mean to bu caught napping. The German press comments upon this latest
move of thu ompuvor as full of signi'i-
canee. It ib pointed out that, a ntr*ry
to the UBual custom in such caseB,
there is 110 attempt at concealment
Tliu emperor seema to, have taken
special pains to give the fullest p ssi hie
publicity to hia plan to ni.sss n formidable force on the Rusamn frontier.
This the German press accept as u unto
of defiance. Thu inure sonsational of
tho Berlin papers go so far na to say
that thia indicatea a determination on
the part of the emperor to force Russia's hnnd. Should Russia reply by
further increasing her forco on tho
German and Austrian line, aa is con*
fiduntly expected, a crisis will be precipitated before the end of tho year.

Thoy seem to get along very woll
without separate schools in British
Oolumbia—so well, indeod, thnt the
sugge&tion that any politician favour
the establishment of auch schools la re*
gardod as a tremendous libel. Ono of
the local ministers, Mr. Robson, says
"he would not ait for twenty-four
hours in a oabinet, one of whose members contemplated tho destruction of
our present splendid system and the
raising up of separate schools  in its
Elace." And another minister, Mr.
luvie, asserts that, though a Roman
Catholic, ho iB wedded to the natinnnl
nnd unsectnrian sohool system, and
would not lift a .finger against it.
While this is the condition of things
on the coast those who oppose separate
schools in Manitoba can accept the accusation that they are fanatics, "Mali-

Friday Evening, Sept. 6,1889.
It is about time, we think, that
Edison turned hia attention for a
littlo while from inventing new
olectricnl appliances to more securely hm nessing aome of tho lightning-
strikers that his genuis has so
materially assisted to ovolvo. Such
occurrences as tlio ono related in
tho Buffalo despatch in theso columns' yesterday tiro bocoming
altogether too common. Electricity, in its various modern appliances
has been considered a great boon to
tbo world of scienco, but it cannot
but be viewed as u doubtful blessing
if it continues in the larger cities,
whero it is applied to so many
oconoraic and industrial purposes,
to bo such a dangerous thing to have
around. As illustrating further the
necessity for some better system of
disposing of electric wires than the
olj generally in use, a serious
casualty that happened recently at
Evansville, Ind,,might be mentioned.
During a heavy storm, a numbor of
electric light and other overhead
wires were blown down and crossed,
and the electric fluid started out to
mnke things lively about the
streets. Sparks were hissing and
sputtering in all directions; tho
Hro department was called out, nnd,
unaware of tho exact state of things,
a number of firemen, civilians, and
horses were knocked over by electrio shocks. Finally a messenger
ran to the electric light station,
which was promptly shut down,
when over a dozen persons were
found lying about unconscious and
were restored with difficulty, two
of the firemen nt last accounts remaining iu a prcoarious condition.
- It is such littlo occurrences ns these
wliich make tho firemen and the
general public alike distrustful of
tln^ overhead wires, look they ever
SO innocent.
It is a matter of surprise to us
how any Canadian, or Britisher, or
any man living in a Canadian community, or obtaining a livelihood
from the people of any Canadian
community, should so fnr forget
bimself and the interests of those
upon whom bis very existence depends as to sido with tho United
States government in its piratical
actions in Behring Sea, The great
republic, not having a navy worthy
of the name, has turned its few
worm-eaten hulks into free-booters
und sent them to Behring Sen to
forage upon defenceless sealers—
British und oven American vessels
' —to rob them of their hard-earned
harvest, and "order" them to port
under arrest for the purposo of
confiscation. And this is dono in
the mime of "law," but really in
tbo interest of monopoly. Fie upon
such a law ! Fie upon a man who
would uphold sucli a law, especially
when his_ constituents—his very
next-door neighbors—aro the one3
who are thus lining robbed und
pillaged ! The United States has
no un'rejurisdiction over Behring
Son than it has over the boundless
expanse of the Pacific Ocean, and
ir is as well aware of thu fact
ns anyone olse. Ib is simply
phyingn gameof bluff*—Yankoebluff
pure and simple. As well might
the re venue cutter Rush stop nnd
piling-! vessels iu in id ocean,as more
thnu three marine miles from land
in 1 Seliring Boa. But who is to stop
iti Our soaling vessels are defenceless against the guns of the cutter.
Their arms aro tied. Thoy know
they have the right, but Uncle Sam's
"navy" has the might, Wo nro-so
far removed from the seat of British
authority that but very littlo heed
is taken of our complaints, and it
will probably bo many months bo-
forfl any definite action whatever
will l»s taken iu the mattor by thoso
to ivhoni wo look for protection from
this legali«od piracy. But help will
come. "Tho mills of the gods grind
slowly, but they grind exceeding
small," and when old England does
not she wiU not in such u manner as
to mako Uncle Sam wish he "hadn't
dono it." Thon, perhaps, those
ranting "birds of passage," who have
been in the province Bcarc-dy long
enough to get a squaro meal, will,
too, wish they "hadn't done it." Tiio
poople of western Britisli Columbia
havo suffered much from both United States pirates and "birds of pa3-
aage,"iihd tho limit of their patience
is about reached.
"Tho uiguroUs- doomed" is the
head of an article in tho American
Analyst. Poaco to its ashes, wo
would say. Wo always oxpectod
that lho petit weed would end in
smoke ns it began. Tho Analyst
says that observation in public
places throughout tho United States
gives satisfactory evidence that the
use of cigarettes is rapidly on tho
decline. Whether this is due to
the stringent laws passed in many
of tlio states against selling thom to
minors, or tliat smokers hnve come
to their senses and liavo taken
warning from their own experience
and tlie unanimous condemnation
of smoking cigarettes by tho medical
profession, or whether the evil prac*
mme^M^mmmmmmmmmst-i
tice has begun to bo looked upou as
a discreditable vice to be only practiced in secret, is not known * but
it is certain that, us compared with
the past, vory  few   cigarettes  aro
now    smoked    in    public.   Cigar
dealers say that the sales of cigarettes havo  fallen  off enormously.
The manufacturers of these noxious
things  have  been   compelled    to
advertise  largely   to   prevent   the
entire destruction of their business,
and about the only people who uan
now be   seen  smoking  the  paper
abominations are a few moon-faced
juveniles who imagine   that   cigarette smoking gives them a literary
aspect, or who ambitiously aim at
appearing manly and graceful while
poisoning   the   atmosphere   about
them,   or  blowing   tho    offensive
smoke through the windows of horso
cars until rebuked by the conductors.
Employers and business men gon-
ornlly havo arrayed  themselves   in
opposition to thoso who  persist   in
tlio   objectionable    practice,    and
young ladies havo learned to understand thnt   tho   real   reason   why
their youug men smoko cigarettes is
that they   can   smoko  twenty   of
them, vile though they are, for tho
price of a   very   cheap  cigar.   It
will be well for our youth when the
habit becomes wholly extinct.   Dr.
William L,   Dudley,   Professor  of
Chemistry in the Vanderbllt   University, gives tho results of  recent
careful analytical experiments mado
by him in his laboratory with   the
smoko of an  ordinary   cigarette.
The tests woro thoroughly scientific
and conclusive.   The fact was  demonstrated beyond tho   chance  of
doubt or question that carbolic oxide
is the chief constituent of  cigarette
smoke, if not all tobacco smoke, and
that its inhalation into tho air passages of the lungs must, of necessity,
be dolfiterious.   Prof. Dudley refers
to tho published assertions that the
adulteration of tobacco with opium
and flavoring drugs, and tho alleged
presence of arsenic in the paper, aro
the chief causes of the evil effects of
cigarette smoking, but pronounces
them unsatisfactory and insufficient
as    explanations.     His    chemical
tests, Jio insists, have demonstrated
positively tlie actual causo   of   tl:
mischief,   namely,    the    cigarette
smoker's absorption of tho carbonic
oxido "and  other   gases,    causing
deoxidation of the blood, and thereby impairing its power to build up
the wasting tissues   of  tho   body.
The Analyst conoludes as  follows;
The cigarette habit has of lato year.;
become very common in this cctintry.
It is one of those  many   European
importations which do  our   people
more harm   than  good.    Many   of
our young men, and some of thom
are neither young nor inexperienced.
aru  literally burning out of themselves tho   beat   element   of   their
manhood   by  sucking   into    their
systems the poison of physical and
mental   degeneracy    through    tho
filthy cigarette.    Cigar smoking and
pipe smoking aro bad  enough and
pernicious enough in all conscience,
but cigarette smoking is absolutely
suicidal.

►A Summer Sermon and the Fruits
It Bore.
Tlio schoolmaster and bla wifo, after
morning mooting was over, took thoir way
us usual down trout's Lano and across the
hill homeward. The path was narrow; the
dominie walked lirst. He mode a remark
at lon** intervals to IiIb wife behind him, but
j Without looking back.
"Squiro wasn't out, Reckon his lumbago's
Worse?"
'"S likely."
I  "The doctor had his little grandchild with
him.  I suppose his daughter has como for
'■Uio summer?"
f "I reckon she has."
Tlicro was a long silonco after that,
broken only by the buzz of the bees ln the
Licit clover and the ck'k-k of tho Rrasshop-
IpeiT, through the hot (Trass. Tho old man
stopped, i'B he always did on Sunday, to boo
ihow much tho corn in the lower field had
grown during tho week, and to gaze modi*
[taiivoly at tho pigs in their pen, But Mrs.
Hi lines had no thought to-day for tho pigs
' or .orn. Bhe walked with her head bont on
1 ho i bretut, almost forgetting to hold up the
j-i-.k? i't. of her Sunday merino out of the grass.
Tii i o Imd been a strange preacher that day
'—.-1 ..td man with a quick, sharp tone like
tin cull of a horn to wandering sheep-very
!alffuierit from Father Langley's prolonged,

selves iii selilshnoss and fat content as In
LiTi''-"-i'luUies beforo yoa are dead, Tho
"World is full of your brothers, starving, cold,
agiioraiit, Go to thcnii You owo them
Servico to tho last breath of your lifo.
> Mi-->. Holmes had asked the doctor's wife
;on*-ii''.i!ily what she thought of the sermon
jas lliey cumo out of tho church-yard.
■ Mrs. t'orry shook her head contemptuously
'< "He's one of theso halt-cracked, sensation preachers. What has Amity township to do with thostnrving poor! vVetioep
itip our almshouse woll. Let the big towns

■ Ami was comforted for tho moment, but
'shu remained uneasy. That hint about the
'grave clothes scorned a personal hit at hcr-
-eelf. Could tho man know —t
( Sho hurried past the schoolmaster when
j'thcy vouched their own gate, going up tho
fijiiil loss boardwalk, with beds of geraniums
[uud roses on either side, to tho side door.

garden in tlio village; no kitchen was so

kind prim. Surely her conscience told her
It ho wsb a good Christian woman, fulfill-
■ing her duty, and had no cause for tho
\. I'cneh and misery of soul which sho felt
Hunt now.
Sho wont up the stairs to her own chnni-
}m; laid off her bonnet carefully, and thon
unlocked a drawer in the prcBS. Sho did
not need to lift tho white towels. She know
perfectly well what was pinned up in
thom. Ttio underclothing of snowy linen,
iho worked flannels, tho fine woolon shroud.
Sho had put in every stitch hi them. Could
llio niunlinvo known?
Every matron In Amity had her "funeral
milt" provided. It was a matter ot pride
'do thoin, just as Mrs. B., in Boston, would
"delight lu her old satsuma or hor Corot.

jotcry. Tho Holmcses had their lot like tho

A Chinaman named Ah Song, a former resident of tho royal city, whero
ho la woll if uot favorably known, was
brought down from Yalo yesterday by
Mr. Win. Dodds, government agent,
tn servo a term of six months in the
ohningaiig for supplying liquor to Indians. Ah Song is a cook and has
boon employed by an American gentleman at Yule, who paid him §30 per
month and board. Not content with
these excellent wages, the covetoous
Celestial could not resist the temptation of buying whiskey at 75 conts per
bottlo and selling it to the Indians at
$2 per bottle. Ho carried ou thia unlawful trade until n great row occurred
among a lot of drunken Iodines, and
whon tho ofl'oudors wero brought beforo tho court it transpired that Song
was to blume for tho troublo. The
presiding mgistrate issued a warrant
for Song who was arrested, tried and
convicted aud sentenced to six months
hard labor in the provincial gaol.

AflcniuoJi.—.tftcr a Delightful
Trip Across the Continent.
The  announcement that tho Hon,
Edgar Dewdney, minister of the in-
interior, would arrive   to-day, was the
signal for a large turnout of the pioneers of the provinco who make Westminster their home.   The  honorable
gentleman being  like themselves, entitled to the honor of being  chsicd
among tho "old timers," consequently
it was not so much to greet a minister
of the Dominion cabinet that they assembled, but rather to welcome back
an  old  companion  who had worked
and mined with them away back in the
GOs. A largo number of prominent citizens, including D. Chishom, M, P.,'
Mayor Townsend, B. Douglas, Aid.
Cunningham,  J. S.   Clute, st-.,  John
Hendry    and    many    othors,   met
Mr.     Dewdney     at     Westminster
Junction    and   gavo  him    n  right
hearty welcome buck to Westminster.
Tlio station platform was  lined   with
peoplo when the train rolled np, but j
there was uo demonstration attumpted-
tlittt boing reserved for a moro suitable
moment. Mr. uud Mrs. Dewdney und
Mr. McGirr,   his  private  secretary,
wero driven to tho Colonial, whero the
party will stay during their visit hore.
Both Mr. and Mrs. Dewdney look
remarkably well aftor thoir long trip
across the continent.   All along the
routs thoy were accorded most hearty
receptions, and at  Regina,   Medicine
Hat and Calgary, Hon. Mr.  Dewdney
was presonted  with add.esses   and
banquctted.   This  boing nu   oflkiul
trip, much uf   tho   hon.   goufleman'a
timo hns beeu taken up with matters
in connection with his   department,
and to a certain extent tho journey
has beeu rather fatiguing.   But notwithstanding all this, Mr. Dewdney
expressess himself ns delighted with
his trip, and heartily glad to find himsolf nmong his old friends onco more,
Mr. Dewdney is a nativo of Devonshire, Eng., where  ho  was born  in
1835.   He camo to  British Columbia
iu 1859, being thus one of our earliest
pioneers.   Ho was for years identified
with the public affairs of the provinco,
and more recently with  thoso of  tho
Dominion, and at oir- timo was  cm-
ployed on the Canadian  Pacific Railway  survey  ai  nn engineer.    During    tho    early GOs   Mr.   Dewdney
did   some   impoitint   survey  work
on   tho   royal  city  town**;!.'*,    Mr.
Dewdney represented Kootenay in the
local parliament in 1808-P, aud was returned for tho Dominion   parliament
from Yale district iu  1872, again  in
187'1 and by nednmation nt tlio general election of 1878,   In 1870 ho re-
ceived the appointment of Indian com*
missiontr  of  the Northwest,  wliich
uliicu he held till appointed lieutenant-
governor of tho Northwest Territories
in   December  of  1SS1.     Upon  the
death of Hon.  Thos. White,   minister
of the interior, lustyenr, Mr. Dewdney
was selected by Sir John Macdonald to
fill the deceasi-d minister's place in thu
cabinet, the appointment by reason of
Mr, Dewdney'a wide experience of tho
country and general  ability, being an
excellent ono.    While representing a
British Columbia constituency in tho
Dominion  house,   Mr.   Dewdney did
excellent sorvico for the  country during tin: -'battle of thu routes,11 being a
staunch and able champion "frttf the
Fraaer River,galley and Bhrrard'Inlet,
as against what wob known as tho Bute
Inlet route.    Mou.   Mr. Dewdney, ub
minister of tho Ulterior, f-till continues
to bo a firm   friend uf British Columbia, although  representing u  Northwest ontistituenoy—Assinahoin Eaat—•
and is   withal   one whom   British Columbians will delight to honor.

Editor Columiiu**,—Shi: Your correspondent, "Canadian,'' asks tho question "How can theso things bo?" Dominion officials starting a paper {and
calling It "Truth") for the avowed pu*'*
poso of annexation to the United States
and tho dethronement of the British
monarchy.
A loyal Canadian may well bo startled
that such a thing could actually exist
nnd get support in the royal city. The
directors whoso names aro published iu
connection with this bold avowal of disloyalty and JJradlautjh infidelity may
well bo proud (?) of their position.' Wild
could think that the captain of the Dominion Samson—and others who aro
drawing fat salaries from tho Dominion
government, in British Columbia—would
be guilty of such treasonable utterances
as appear in the first issue of the
Guardian's successor?
If Hon. Mr, Dewdney, who has arrived
here to-day, could only get a list of the
stockholders in this new paper, he would
be astonished to find that somo of their
names aro nlso on the pay list of the
Dominion government.

Yesterday aftornoon an old lady
went to the post oQice and bought a
ft p. o. ordor for which sho
paid with a $10 bill and received tho
proper change from Mr. llrown. This
morning the old lady returned to the
post ollko nud told Sir. llrown throe
dollars uf the ohango had gone astray,
and that her husband hud threatened
to i,iil her if she did not lind it again.
Tho postmaster explained that ho had
given tho proper change, and could do
UO more, Upon hearing this tho old
lady commenced l" weep, and do-
Jared she could not roturn homo with*
nut the money, no she feared hur husband would carry out his threat, Mr.
B rown seeing thecaso was one offfoiiuhie
distress, look compa»aiun ou thu poor
old lady and gave her the amount she
hud mislaid, with whioh sh» departed

out, but will be madu publio later

From Mr. Wm. Dodda, government agent at Yale, Tub Columbian
learns that mining mutters in that locality nre quiet, although much prospecting is being done. On Siwnsh
Creek a number of men are making
fair wngus, and several very handsome
nuggets have boen taken out within
tho last weok. Tho last woshup of
tho British American Mining Co.,
which is controlled by Wostminstor
capitalists, gave 13 o/,s. of the yellow
dust, a most satisfactory result. Tho
noxt washup is oxpeeted to be evon
more profitable.
An American gentleman, named
K. K. Oloott, representing n syndicate
of capitalists, is inspecting tho oreeks
and mines in the vicinity ot Yule, with
a view to purchasing any that givo
likely sigim of profitable working.
Uo has not concluded any purchases as
yet, but aeveral claim ownen are iu
negotiation with him, Evory week
prospectors are returning to Yale with
rich specimens of quarts-, and aome of
tho miners are confident that thoir
finds will turn out to be most valuable
property.
A l'i ne i'«ig.
Tho Times gives u description of the
fino new tug boing built at Victoria for
Mr. Alex. Ewen of this city. Sho will
bo used when completed for work in
connection with tho canneries and for
towing, and from all present appearances she will bo a very suitablo boat
for the business. Her frames aro of
steel, with strong steel diagonal braces,
three water-tight bulkheads, aud steel
deck. Over the frames is bolted two-
inch planking, and the steel deck will
also be covered with wood, forming
what is known as tho "composite'' typo
of hull. Tho dimensions of the boat
aro 05 feet length, 13 feet 0 inches
beam, and G feet 9 inohes depth of
hold. Her model is a fine one, uud sho
will evidently be a vory fast boat.
Tho engines are of tho triple-expansion
typo, built by Ross & Duncan, Govan,
Scotland, and are extra lino specimens of marine work. Tho cylinder
are of 8, 13 and 21 inches dinmoter respectively, with a stroke of 12 inches
common to all, Tho condenser forms
tho back frame, while tho front is
turned steel columns, making a very
neat appearance, besides being handy,
it leaving tho valve gear, etc, all clear.
The valve gear is of the typo known
i.s IJrcnime'fl, being the only engitio so
fitted on tho coast. It differs frnm tho
ordinary valvo gear materially, esthete
is but one eccentric, but by ail ingenious arrangement of links and rookshaft,
tho motion of tho valves can bo reversed
und thereby tho engine, vory oasily.
Th--. boilor is of steel, fitted with two
furnaces and seventy-two tubes, whieh
will givo nmplo heating surface to gon*
orate n good supply of steam nt a prcs-
Kim; of 155 pounds to tho square inch.
Donkey and hand pumps ure nlso iu
their places, Tho propuller, whieh is
phosphor bronze, has a diamotor of six
feet and a pitch of ten feet, nnd should,
when turned up to 150 revolutions por
minute givo the boat a speed of ut least
twolvo knots, which ia n good rato for
u small crnft. A new feature of tho
propeller is a lip nn tho ond of tho
blades which will prevent the water
from being thrown out from tho wheel,
but rather driving it direct astern, producing tho greatest etliciency, Taken
altogether, the vessel will be one of
the moat completo little craft on the
const. She will probably bo roady for
work in about six weeki, and will bo a
good addition to tho growing fleet of
steamers in those watora.
GRATIFYING TO ALL.
