The Mitchell Advocate says: A
commercial traveller, since the elevation of Bishop Walsh, of London, to
tho Archbishopric of Toronto, is reminded of an occurrence some years
ago in a railway car, in which his
present lordship took part. An irreverent traveller askod Bishop
Walsh, probably now knowing who
he was, if ho hnd not hoard that in
Paris as often as a priest was hanged a donkey was hanged at the same
time. Tho proposed victim of the
joke replied in tho blandest possiblo
manner, "Well, then, let us both bo
thankful that wo are not in Paris.

The following figures from Lord
Brassey's Naval Annual for 1888-9
shows how the -£20,000.000, recently
voted by parliament for increasing
tho strength of the British Navy, is
to be utilized. The new programme
of construction is to be completed by

' The bruiser Sullivan must have
boen astonished at the sentence he
got from the Mississippi judge, remarks the New York Times. Ho
consented in a jaunty way to go to
Mississippi — when lie found he
couldn't help himself—avowing that
if ho violated the law he was reudy
to pay for it. Ho seemed to havo
no other notion except that money
would settle the business. He undoubtedly expectid to get off with
a fine, which oould not exceed $500,
The alternative of having to go to
prison for twelve months did not
apparently enter into his calculations. It is to be hoped that the
sentence will bc fully served out,
and that the burly convict will bo
kept at hard and useful hbor.
Tho Duke of Fife, although a respectable member of English society,
has tlie misfortune of possessing near
relatives whose behaviour has given
rise to much scandal. The character of his threo sisters has been
such tliat it was found absolutely impossible to invite them to attend
their only brother's wedding at
Buckingham Palace. The eldest,
married to the eccentric Marquis of
Townshend, lives separated from hor
husband, from whom she eloped in
yenrs gone by. Tho seoond, Lady
Ida, who conferred her hand on the
woll-known turfite, Adrian Hope,
likewise eloped and became the
heroine of ono of tho most remarkable divorce trials ever heard in tlie
London courts, The youngest, Lady
Agnes, deserted hor husband, the
lato Lord Dupplin, and eloped with
his best friend, tho handsomo Herbert Flower. Both the former nnd
tho latter are now dead, and have
thus enabled Lady Agnes to contract a third marriage with the famous London surgeon, Alfred Cooper.
Somebody who had got into a dispute with his mother-in-law wroto
to the Chicago Herald to impure the
meaning of the words, "coming

"Coming through a field of grain."
It now hastens to retract, saying :
"All Scotland has fallen upon us,
and protests against our answer
have beon recoived from every
state in the union." The song seoins
to refer to a ford of tho Rye rivor or
stream, or a passage upon stepping
htones, where a kiss was exacted as
toll, just ns tho same privilege, aooording to tradition, is the right of
a young man when crossing a
bridgo in this country, Ln fact, the
American tradition seems to be
really the survival of tho Scottish.

A DBMK1TB AKIlASllBMEiNT.
Ottawa, Aug. Iii),—A prominent
otticial of the marine and fisheries department said last night that despite
whatever might he said to the con*
trary, there waB an understanding between the United States and the British governments in regard to tho Behring Sea matter, that until a definite settlement of tho question has
been reached tho U. S. should continue to protect these seal fisheries
without British interference. This
fact, he snid, accounts for the refusal
of Lord Salisbury to allow the British
Paciiic squadron to proceed to Behring
Soa to protect Canadian sealers.

nfl'air occurred Saturday morning,
when a well-kmvn resident of Puslinch
Like was dragged from bed by Whito

PURE NONSENSE.

received horo from om.- uf tlio oflicers
of the United States putter Rush, now
iu Behring Sea, shows an alarming decrease in seals in the northern waters
in tho past four years, and also a tie-

BBl'ABATB TRIALS DENIED.
Chicago, Aug. 29.—Judge McCon*
noil's decision on tho motion for separate trials in thu cases of Coughlin,
Beggs, Burke. Sullivan and Woodruff,
has just been given, It is to the effect
that in tho lirst four mentioned it is
denied. Woodruff, however, is granted a separate trial. The attorneys for
Coughlin, Beggs, Burke aud Sullivan,
demanded immediate trial, Judge
Lon 0. nook or askod a continuance nnd
after a wrangle thu matter was laid
over until to-morrow ovoning.
THE CUONIH  MURDERERS' TRIAL,
OuiOAQO, Aug. 29.—The court room
wns not overcrowded this morning
when Judgo McConnell took his seat
shortly after ten o'clock. It was generally expected he would rofuso to
grant separate trials to Coughlin,
Beggs, Burko and Sullivau, and his
decision to that effect was no surprise.
Judgo McConnell Baid : "I cannot
prosumo that any improper evidence
will bo offered by tho prosecution in
the coming trial, or will bo admitted
by the trial judgo. Nor can I presume
that tho jury will mako any improper
speculation from tho o-ndonco against
any oiio of the prisoners that would
not be fair to tho othor prisoners."
Tho judgo thon overruled the motion
for separate trials in the cases of
Coughlin, Burko, Beggs and O'Sulli-
vau. Referring to Woodruff, tho judgo
Baid Woodruff, It appears, has made
several confessions; the other defendants therefore could hardly havo a
fair trial if associated with him
for this reason. The judg
granted a motion for a separate trial In Woodruff's case.
The attorneys for the rest, Donohoe
and Kennedy, at once aiked leave to
file bills of exceptions and were granted twenty days to file the bills. The
attorneys then aiked on behalf of
Coughlin that the jury be called and
his trial he proceeded with. The attorneys for the other defendants, including Browne, for Woodruff, followed suit. Judge Longnecker asked
a continuance on tho ground uf the
illiie-iB of Mr. Ilynos, his assooiato
counsel. Tliis brought forth strong
objections from the attorneys for the
defense, and quite a row followed.
Finally Judge McConnell disposed of
the matter by a continuance until 10
o'clock to-morrow morning.
HACKETT'S HARBOR BURNED.
Watertown, N. Y., Aug. 29.—A

harbor last night. The telegraph and
telephone offices, every saloon in the
pluce, dry goods, grocery, hardware,

KILLING EVIDENCE,
Chicago, Aug. 28.—Gus Klahr, the
tinsmith, who identified Burke as tho
man who came to him to have a tin box
soldered on the Oth of May, which is
thought to have contained Dr, Cronin's clothing, came very near being
assassinated last night. He was walking on Ohio street at 9 o'clock on his
way home. When within a block of
there 10 or 12 young men assaulted
him, knocking him down and beating
him about the head with a blunt instrument. Then they threw him over
a low fence to the ground below, a
distance of 12 feet. He called for help
and ran towards his house. Hii cries
were heard by hia brother and the servant girl who ran out to meet him.
The assassins sprang over the fenee
after him and pursued him almost to
his door. The only clue to his assail*
ants is that furnished by Klahr's mother who says she hoard one of the fellows say, with an Irish brogue, to
"Give it ta him." Klahr became tin-
conscious as he entered tho door and
nothing could be learned from him ns
to tho assault, and at a late hour last
night he was still unable to speak or
recognise auy one. He ia not known
to have any enemies, unless ho has
made them by his statement in the
Cronin trial. No arrests have beon
made in the crtio.

RAKING SIR JULIAN.
London, Aug. 28.—The Canadian
Gazette asks how is it while Behring
Sea affairs are in bo critical a state, the
British minister to Washington can
afford to be basking in the sunshine
of British society. The charge
d'affaires at Washington cannot make
the same weighty representation as hia
chief. The Qaxeltt respectfully suggests that Washington, and not London, ii whero Sir Julian Paunccfoto
should now be. The Behring Sen still
continues to attract the notice of the
press here. The Canadian Ga.ette
points out that practically there are no
two opinions here on tho subject, British publio opinio)), as represented in
the organs of all parties, being at one
with Canada.
WANT MORE WAGES.
Glasgow, Aug. 28.—Tho dock laborers of Glasgow have been very uneasy ever sinco the inauguration of tho
strike in London, and their leaders
have been urging them to follow the
example set them. They held an enthusiastic meeting to-day at which a
demand for an advance in wages was
formulated and Inter presented to their
employers. A motion to strike in
case their demand was not granted,
was passed without n discounting voice.
Immense interests here are involved
in tho outcome and the merchants,
shippers, manufacturers and all classes
ure anxiously awaiting the answer of
the employers.
THE OREAT STRIKE.
Londondery, Aug. 28.—Mr. Bums,
tho Socialist lender, presided at a
meeting of the striking dock hands
held this morning. In an nd-h-ess Mr.
Burns said that tho companies threatened to import 4,000 Belgians to fill
tho. places of tho strikers, but ho had
apprised tho Belgian Workmen's Union
with regurd to tho shto of affairs, and
blocked tho company's game iu that
direction. Tho latest calculations
place the number of strikers at 150,-
000. Tho leaders are determined, and
threaten that the itrikers wilt pnrade
tho streets until the companies concede
thoir demands. A report is in circulation to the effect thnt the uthcials of
the Commercial Dock Company, aro
considering tho advisability of a sottle-
inent. The feeling is growing more
hopeful overy hour. Affairs have
greatly quieted down owing to thoir
boing less intimidation. However,
there is still tho same excitement at
St. Pancras. Notwithstanding tho opposition of many of the strikers, who
urge that no work shall bo resumed
until the advance demanded is con-
coded to all, a large numbor of coal
heaven have returned to work. Cool
vans, loaving the yards under polico
escort, have been attacked by a mob
of howling strikers numbering sovoral
thousands. Tho police were power*
less. The strikers undid the chain
and traces and compelled the driven
to return. In a few moments 6,000
strikers appeared on the scene and
started for the coal exchanges. The
sales agonts of six great ooal compnniei
have deoided not to alter prices at
pro&ont, but to restrict tho September
production to 3,000,000 tons, a decrease of about 1,000,00 tona as compared with the same month last year..

We aro glad to find out that we
were mistaken, us a correspondent
informs us in another column, with
respect to the meaning and intent of
tho petitioners in tho Southorn Railway matter. IE wu did lnisappre-
hond the meaning of thu petitioners,
with regard to tho bridgo bonus, as
wo are bound to believe on the
word of our correspondent, we cannot be charged with having clone so
purposely * for, as the petition was
drafted, it is very difficult top construe any other meaning upon, .-the
point in question than the ono wflfe
we educed. Quotations from thef
introductory clauses of tho petition and from clauses threo and
four, read together, will prove
this :   "Therefore tho  undersigned
* * * pray * * * that in
any agreement entered into   *   *
* tho substantial essence of the
following clauses may be embodied,
especially thoso referring to tho
bonuses in money and land, and that
no other bonus be given. (3) Whon
the first train from Whatcom shall
have arrived in the company's yard
on Lulu Islnnd * * tt over
suoh a feiry or bridge across Fraser
Riveras the company agrees to build,
and over such a bridge across the
North Ann as the company agrees
to construct, then §50,000 to be
due the company from the city.
(4) When the said road is extended
from Whatcom to any one of the
cities of Seattle, Tacoma or Portland
* * * thon a furthor bonus of
$100,000 to bo due from the city to
tho company," Theso quotations
speak for themselves. No udded
comment ia necessary. Wo gladly
accept our correspondent's correction—not of our construction of the
petition (no other was possible)—but
of tho document itself.
Tlio people of the prairie province
of Manitoba have a duo appreciation
of the necessity for and the  advantages bf railways, and, according to
tho Commercial of   Winnipeg,   are
rejoicing in their good prospecta for
having much needed branches   and
extensions   built.    Tho   season   of
1889, says the Commercial, is proving one of the most important iu tho
matter   of    railway   construction
through the prairie region of   western Canada, sinco the tirst beginning
of railway work here, and continues
as follows: "Undoubtedly thisdesir-
ublo state of affairs is clue to the advent of a new and powerful railway
corporation in our midst.   Had not
the Northern Pacific   Oompany undertaken tho construction of a system
of railways in Manitoba, there is no
reason   to   beliove    that  the  activity recontly shown by tho O.   P.
R. corporation would have been displayed.   The branch lines   recently
undertaken hy tho O.P.It,. Company
havo been badly needed   for  years,
but tliat corporation has   remained
deaf to all uppenls, until stirred  up
to activity by the invasiou of its territory by another company.   So far
Manitoba- has had no reason to  regret the results of the anti-monopoly
agitation, nor tho expenditure undertaken by tho province in   inducing
auother  powerful   railway corporation to enter the field.   So far nothing but satisfaction can be oxpressed
for the results already attained from
the successful termination   of   the
anti-disallowance, ami-monopoly agitation.   The   country  haB   settled
down to a state of peace and  quietness which it had not   experienced
for years.    A feeling  of confidence
is abroad  in   thu   land   which   is
quite foreign to the turbulent days
of notation, during which time the
province was   laboring   under the
load unjustly forced upon us by the
Dominion.    Ahovo all, a   new and
active orn in the development of tho
country has set in.   Tho cost of in-
duein** tbo Northern Paoific Oompany
to undertake the construction of a
system of railways in Manitoba has
not been excessive when compared
with tho results attaintd.   Tho outlay haa not only secured the   construction of the lint;:-* as agroed upon
in   tho  contract, hut it has  also
undoubtedly led to the carrying out
of other work, us for  instanco  the
branch roads uow being built by the
0. P. 11. Oo,   Tho construction   of
every mile of railway tends to   the
development and settlement of the
country,  and  thus  increases  tho
necessity for and   tho   probability
of the early construction of   other
roads.   The more rapid development
of the country now assured, as a
result of the agreement between the
province and the Northern  Pacific
campany,  will havo the  effect  of
making the cost of tho samo easily
, borno.   A few hundred thousand dollars of indebtedness is a small matter, when compared with the great
good resulting therefrom.   Tho expenditure is already bearing muoh
fruit, and there aro fow in Manitoba  who  are   not  pleased   with
the work already accomplished, nnd
with   tho   outlook   ahead,"     The
four or  fivo last sentences abovo
may profitably be road as having a
general application, and we of the
royal city, and of tlie province at
large even, would not do amiss to
make a note of tlie fact. Somo one
might ask, if The Columbian com-
mends such views about railways in
general, why does it opposo tho
Canadian Western Railway scheme?
We would have no difficulty in
answering such a question. In tho
first plnco we havo nover opposed
that enterprise. On the contrary,
ns our readers know, when the matter was beforo the legislature last
session, wo approved of tho very
large land subsidy—probably tho
largest por mile ever granted to a
railway—which the provincial par*
lianiDnt saw fit to devote to the "encouragement" of the road in question, believing, as we stated substantially at the time, that it would pay
to give) away half the laud along tho
route to recover the other half nnd
adjacent lands from a stato of inaccessible wildness to the uses of civilization and to be wealth and revenue producing, recognizing also that
tho lands granted to tho railway
company cannot be carried out of the
province, but must likewise add to
its wealth. But there aro other
provincial works, including less pro
tcntious, perhaps, but moro urgently
required railways, than the Canadian
Western, and when it is proposed
to "wet-nurse" tbat scheme through
with tbe provincial "pap-bottle,"
after the very respectable land subsidy already given, and nt the inevitable expense of moro immedi-
atoly necessary public works and
improvements, we deem it our duty
to enter a protest. The Canadian
Western and all other feasible railway undertakings will ever have our
support, but some regard must bo
paid to the circumstances of the
province and tho other demands
upon the public purse, ere British
Oolumbia shoulders the stupendous
undertaking of forcing through a
second transcontinental railway.
"A journal which has taken to
lecturing its cotemporaries on journalistic amenities objects to our use
of the word 'lie.' We do not soo the
force of tbe objection. 'Lie* is not
slang, neither is it vulgar. It is a
good English word, in constant use
by the best authors. One might as
well condemn the use of the words
'steal' or 'murder.' Of courso it is
not a pleasant word, but whon a lio
is told it is as necessary to call it a
lie plainly as to say that theft is
theft and that murder is murder.
When murders and thefts aro done
no moro we shall be happy to discontinue tho use of those unpleasant
words, and when men and journals
cease to lie wo shall be pleased to
rank 'lie' among words that uro obsolete." So says the Globe, and its
argument would bf) quite sound if
everyone who used tho word could
be trusted with it, Or, again, if
lying were a crime—as theft and
murder are—so that the law would
restrain reckless accusations, there
would not bo tho same objections to
tho uso of tho word. When you
call a man a thief, ho can force you
to prove it, but to call a man u, liar
—especially in a political contest—
is morely to say that you don't agree
with him, and few juries would
recognize his claim for damages.
We don't deny that it is a. deplorable state of affairs, but wo do not
soe how it is to be remedied unless
our leading political journals set a
much better example than they nre
setting juat now.

I did not liko tlio liusiness, and, after bavin;" workodatit for a few years, resigned
my position to engage in something moro
c gonial to my tasto, Amongthomonyac-
qi.,iintances I had formed at that timo was
' nt of a young follow by the name of Taylor, who was also an operator, and, at the
timo of wliich l writo, wos omployod by the
telegraph company in thoir offlco, where,
for old acquaintance sako, I called without
dolay, and found him sooted by his Instrument engaged In tho perusal of tho even*
Ing paper.
-'Tuylor,' aaid I, advancing toward him,
"how are you?"
"Halloo, Parkor, Is that youl" ho exclaimed, rising from his soat "Givo us
your fin, old follow, and say, how goes iti"
"First rato," I replied, shaking hands'
"you still koop at tho old occupation, I sec."
"Yo3, aud probably always shall. Hore

I'vo f-ot to receive this message that's coming. 'No poncafoi'thowicked-'andcortnin-

I look tho seat ho offered, and, spreading
tho paper out boforo me, began to rond—ray
friend In the meantime taking down tho
dispatch, nud otltorwlso busying himsolf
about tho instrument, which had com-
.menced clicking in a vory lively and animated manner,
"It's from your place," ho said, presently.
'-In It■?" said I, folding tho papor to got at
tholimido,
"It's iu cipher, too," he added boou afterward.
"From my place, and in cipher 1" I ro*.
peatcd, throwing nsido tho paper. "Who ia
it from?"
"Haven't como to that yot."
I hnd becomo strangely Interested, I
scarcely know why, nud waited imputioutly
for tlio complete transmission of the-meu-
aage.
Tho instrument wont on clicking nt a
groat rato, and presently Taylor began to
spell aloud, as fast as it camo over 'ho
wires, tho name appended to the telegram.
"G-a-m-n-o-t-t. Gcir-metf-*' said he.
"Gamnettl" I exclaimed, starting up.
"Wh:,*, tie's my clork! Taylor, lot mo oco

Although tbo proceeding were eouio-

graph officials to allow third parties to bo-

other people's mosaagoa—my friend, uu-Jor
tho prosent circumstances (whicli were
considered ns partial justification for lho
act), handed mo tho papor, on which hu had
transcribed the messugo, ond glancing over
It eagerly, I saw what follows:

"Who is litis Jackson—the man to whom
tho dispatch is addressed? Or don't you
know?" lasltcd,
"Uo keeps a sort of blacksmith's shop,
and makes IooIb," said Taylor. "I don't,
liko hia looks—ho's viiiogar-vlanged."
I hardly know why it was, but tbo factor
my clerk's having sent a telograph dispiitoh
In cipher looked vory suspicious to tuo, ami
I in bU nc lively thought of tho paper I had
found under Ida desk, and which wit'} still in
my pocket.
"Taylor," said I, "I wish you would ul*

mny affect my interests moro than you
think for."
"Well, if you think It does, gonhead,"
aaid Taylor. "Only don't got mo Into hot

"I'll tako care of that, Taylor," Baid I,
going ton desk and sitting down boforo it.
Uow loavo uio alono for a fowmiuutcs-
and I'll see if I can aolvo this mystery."
By tho aid of tho pioco ot paper I havo
beforo mentioned I soon obtained the following translation:
"To William Jackson, its Coppice street:

tools Immediately, antl at one bo nt tho offlco
and I will lot you In. I sleep there.
'■GAMNETT,"
In a perfect thrill of excitement I bade
my friend a hasty good-byo, and telling him
that I would moro fully explain ot somo
other timo, ran back to tho station aud took
the night train for home.
Aa wo whirled onward in the darkness I
revolved tho wholo matter over in my mind,
and camo to a decision as to what plan I
should pursuo—which will bo bettor illustrated by tho actual facts as they occurred.
Going directly to tho poat-offlcc I communicated my discovery to tho chief, who sol.
a trap by moans of which tho burglars wore
caught engaged in Iho accomplishment of
thoir nefarious schemes.
The station was watched, and a stranger
currying in bis hand n largo bag was observed to alight from tho half-past eleven
o'clock train from town, who took hfa way
to my offlco, on tho door of which ho gavo a
leculiar knock, and was at onco admitted

TRAINING A WOLF.
Tho Difficult Task Accomplished by a Pn.
tlont Dakota Mnn.
According to tho Denver Republican, a
Dakota man, who goes by the name of
Undo Davy, is tho owner of a tamo gray
wolf. Tho animal la about six months old,
weighs a littlo moro than fifty pounds, au'd
has very much the appearance of a well-
kopt dog, though his bearing indicates a
ruthor limited acquaintance with polite society. Ho was found in Middle Park last
summer whilo Uncle Davy and his family
wero on a camping expedition.
Undo Davy was riding at somo distanco
from cnuip ouo aftornoon when suddenly lie
was startled by tho savago yelp of a wolf
and a cry of pain from his pet greyhound.
Ho urged his burro to tho scene, and
found his dog in a serious position. An old
sho wolf, with her four cubs h'uddlctj closoly undor her, attacked the hound with her
foro-paws, struck hlm two sovero blows on
tho head, and laid him out on the ground.
Instantly tho wild boast caught tho Bide
oftho hound In her teeth, und tore out n
pieco of flesh.
Bho thon made on attack upon tho man,
Just as suo leaped tho frightened burro
shied, and Undo Dnvy struck tho beast
with hia Btifl-brlmmcd bat. Tho blow waa
harmless of itsolf, but tho suddenness with
which It was dealt so astonished tho wolf
that sho ran away.
Undo Davy quickly appropriated ono of
the cubs, which was probably two wcolcs
old, and hastily retreated. The littlo stranger was takon in at tho camp and tenderly
nursed until ho was old enough to compi-c-
licndhisBuri'out.dingBnudasBociatO'-. Then
lho process of Instruction wns begun, uutl
ho soon showed himself an apt pupil iu acquiring such tricks as dogs nre commonly
taught.
Kindness has been tho ruling rod, and
.Tuck, whilo ho haB learned many tricks, has
never developed tho least disposition to bc
ugly or savago. Ho possesses nono of the
wicked tricks known to his kind, nud his
tract ability luia disproved thn old asscrtiuu
that a gray wolf can novor bo domcsMcated,
Whilo In tho Hopublican oflico his umt,Let'
put him through a courso of performances
which woro surprising. Ho would Hodotvn,
rollover, sit up, tako olV his master's hat,
and, funniest of all, would leap up, hug
Undo Davy with wolfish fervor and mischievously take off tho old gontlouniu's
spectacles,	
A DlH'i'-reeiiMo Heil-Fullttw.
Ono night tho son of Colonol Dodgo,
whilo Bleeping In camp upon tho ground
next lo his father, uud lytngon hia stomach,
was awakened by a diaagrccauio cold tremor miming through bim. Huddled to Ids
father and said: "Father, thero Is eoino*
thing tho matter with inc. I think I hope got
chill. I havo a cold sensation in the small
a of my back, very slrungo, unlike any ibing I
ovor folt boforo, and I am frightened." To
this, tho father, suspecting tho truth, replied: "Lio perfectly still," thcti -jumped
from his own place of repose, stood it lew
feot away from tho boy with his pmuilhi
his hand, and said to him: "When 1 vomit
three, I want you to jump!" Tho boy replied! "All right." Tho Colonel then
counted threo, and Frederick jumped to his
feet, dislodging from his buck uu enormous
raltloannko which had coiled thero for
warmth, and tho Colonol shot tho serpent
beforo ho could strike the boy.

will lake away 750,000 feet. She is a
neat looking vessel and is said to bo
a fast sailor. After discharging ballast, which will take a couple of days,
the Funk will commence taking cargo uboiml, a portion of which ia cut
and roady on tho wliarf. About 15
days will bo occupied in loading.

Those who imagine that the noblo
red man can't be civilized, nud that all
hia chicktmin when ho gets any is
spent only for common groceries, loud
colored ihawls, muskets, nud "tangleleg," would get new views on the sub--
ject if thoy oould watch tho purchases
that the "Hush" children of tho forest
are laying in from tho -.tores in tiiis
cily, after their unusually profitable
season in the fisheries. As illustrating
the degree of civilization reached by
thoso imtivoB, their purchase of large
numbers of sewing machines nud baby*
carriages, and such implements as
plows, spoul's louder than words. Thu
Indians are good customers, paying
strictly cash, and knowing what they
want, and our storekeepers are all disposed to cultivate them, and are reaping n largo harvest this season, on account tif the great success of tho fish*

It is believed that the Union Paciiic will shortly reach Puget Sound. It
ia making Port Townsond its objective
point. The articles of incorporation
havo boon filed, and tho capital stock
is §5,000,000. Seattlo ia also to bo
reached, wilh a branch to Gray's Harbor. Work on construction has already begun at Port Townsend and
property there has gono away up in
the clouds, From Port Townaond tho
now Hue bears a little west of south,
skirting Hood's canal to the hoad of
that narrow arm of tho Sound. Thonco
the routo k east and south, crossing
the Northern Paetlio track south of
Cenlr-ilia. Thero aro two paths from
Portland to Seattle. Ono is that of
the Northern Pacific. The othor, that
oftho Southern Pacific, crosses the
Columbia river above Vancouver, and
lies to tho eaat of the Northern Paciiic, crossing tho latter track at Puyallup, Probably tho Union Pacific
will tako the Southorn Pacifio route,
as it is thirty-seven miles shorter than
tho other.
A Klin-'*' Scheme.
A San Frauoiaco despatch says:
William Walker, a lumber dealer of
Vallejo, some time ago received a con*
traot to deliver aeveral kinds of lumber to tho Mare island vavy-yard.
Among other items was one fur about
80,000 feet of deck plank, to be of the
best quality of fine-grained Oregon
pine. It is said that he was unable to
obtain sUoh lumber in Oregon aud
Washington territoiy ns would pass inspection for tho prico at which lift had
agreed to deliver it to tho government,
aud lathor than pay tho sum duraaiidud
by the niilla in Oregon' and Washington territory, it is understood that ho
went to British Columbia und got the
contract filled. Tho ichooner Beulah
arrived lust Wednesday from Burrard
Inlet with a cargo of lumber, part of
which is to till tho contract with tlio
United Statsa government, If such i*;
i ho case, it appears to be a violation of
iho terms of the contract, which stipulates for Oregon pine, while Walker ia
intent upon substituting for it a British Oolumbia product.
Fine Wheat Yield-
Mr. Thoa. Thirhill, a well known
and successful farmor of Lulu Island,
gave Tuk Columbian a call to-dny.
Ho reports harvesting well advanced
ou Lulu Island, but in aomo instances
operations have been interfered with
by the unsettled weather. Many of
tho farmers have threshed, and all ro-
port most satisfactory yields. Mr.
Thirhill tried an experiment with fall
whentlast autumn, and the results
have been oven better than were anticipated. He sowed 14 acres last fall
and when tho spring opened the shoots
soon made their appearance and continued to flourish till harvest time, A
fow days ago tho wheat wna threshed,
nud on measuring it was found the
yield averaged 05 bushels to the acre,
which, though largo, would have
been still greater but for tho
drought in July. Mr. Thirhill comos
from Vork county, Out., and hu says
ho reaped a larger crop from this 14
acres than lie would have got from 50
acres in Ontario. It is probablo fall
seeding will bu adopted on a larger
scale all through tho district as aoon aa
it ia known tho tests havo boon successful.
Murk Cod Fish In)-.
Captain Lundberg, who has a fishing station on tho northwest coast of
British Columbia, at Saunders Harbor, arrived from Viotoria thia morning. Ho is doing hia best to develop
the fishing industry up there, and especially deep sea fishing. For this
purposo he has induced a little colony
of his Swedish fellow countrymen to
emigrate, and in addition to the 20
he has in his omploy ho expects more
shortly. Tho location of tho settlement is admirably adapted for their
r-olniiiaution, there being plenty of
wood and water, and resources of forest and sea to draw from. The weather this season has not been altogether
favorablo for fishing operations, and
consequently lho catch bas not beon
what it would havo otherwise been.
Captain Lundberg has put up for market 1,000 barrolfl of lish, a littlo of
this for homo consumption, but tho
greater pnrt for expoit. Most of it
will lind a market iu Australia, ov in
iho United States, The fishing is done
from throo to seven miles from shore,
and at a depth in places Iobs than 250
fathoms. Fish aro plentiful, and of
splondid quality, while their weight
runs everywhere from 5 to 30 pounds.
Oapt. Lundberg proposes to give tho
skil, whioh ia improperly called "black
cod," a now name. "Skil" ii an Indian name ahd aa cod ia a vory common and cheap fish, while the skil,
whioh ii like both a pickerel and a
mackerel, is bettor than either of them.
Ho proposes to call it the "blackoral."

Tlie Celebration.
Tho celebration committees met in
the city hall last evening at IJ o'clock,
Mayor Townsend iu lho chair. The
decoration committeo reported, asking
a further grant of §200 tu assist in
building the citizen's aruh. On mo-
tioti, the dato of the grand procession
waa changed from Octobor 2nd to October 3rd. Communications were road
from the Forresters of Victoria, and
Oddfellows of Kamloops and Victoria,
promising lo tnko part in the procession. The firoworks committee reported having arranged for a pyrotech-
nical display to laat three hours. On
motion the secretary was instructed to
communicate with Lt.-Col. Prior with
tho view of having tho II. C. B. O. A.
present at the celebration, and to take
part in the procession. Tho secretary
was inatrueted to communicate with
the agricultural society, asking permission for tho sportj committee to
erect a grand Btand on tbo grounds
and tako proceeds obtained from tliis
source. Tho following committee was
appointed on tho hose reel tournament ; Aid. Reid, W. Moresby, Thos.
Ovens and T. Ackerman. It was decided that the heads of all committees
meet at tho city hall on Friday night
to arrange programmes. Tho mooting
then adjourned to meet again next
Wednesday evening.
Her First Tow.
Just us the mill whistles announced
tho hour of 0 last evoning, the tug Active entered tho harbor with tho ship
0 C. Funk and two bargoa in tow.
Tho Active left Esquimalt yesterday
morning nt G o'clock, thus making the
75 milo trip, with a largo vessel and
two barges in tow, in tho short space
of twelve hours. From Esquimalt to
Plumper's PaBi tho Active had a 4-
knot tide against her, otherwise hor
time would have boen considerably
bettor. Capt. Johnson is moro than
pleased with the manner in which his
vessel acted on the trip, and ho says
sho oven exceeds the most sanguine
things expected of her. Mr. D. Mc-
Nair, who has the honor of having designed tho Active, ia also delightod
with the satisfactory results already
obtained.
Tho Active is a most valuable addition to the Royal City Mills' fieet, and
that company is now placed on an
equal footing with all tho largo lumbering companies on Puget Sound.
Heretofore thoPuget Sound companies,
owning their or" tugs, had a decided
advantago in chattering vessels. Tho
building of tho tug Active has placed
tho Royal City Milla in a position to
compete with any other company,
and Westminster will looti feel lho
effects of  this decided advantage.

near by. It Ib understood that they
liavo offered §1,000 on acre for part of
tho Hammond land. Of this lnnd Mr.
Hammond donated 20 acres two years
ago to tho proposed Methodist university. It was put into tho bonus raised

ORDERED OUT.
Admiral  llcncngo   orders a   Ciermnn
lE-iriiuc to Leave Ksqulmall.
which Order Is Itclnsed.
A fiery Gorman Bhip muster, suffering desperately from an attack of great
personal importance, has had his vos-
sel removed by Admiral Honoago from
Esquimalt harbor. The facts are substantially as follows: Tho German
barnuo Huslede arrived from Cardiff,
on tno 30th of July, consigned to Robert Ward & Co., of Victoria, having as
cargo 1,900 tons of Welsh coal for tho
navy. This had been discharged at
tho naval coal jetty with the exception
of about 10o tons, which had boen retained as ballast until a portion of her
salmon cargo had arrived. Admiral
Heneage notified Capt. Reiners that
lie required the space whero the
German barque wna anchored, and ordered hiin to movo the Huslede out of
the way. This the captain refused to
do, and aftor somo delay tho admiral
sent a detachment to haul up anchor
and move out tho vessel. Captain Reiners intorfered while tho blue-jackets
wore hauling up the anchor, and protested so strenuously that the officer in
charge withdrew with his men to the
flagship. In the course of tho afternoon, whilo Capt. Reiners was in Victoria, tho Admiral sent over tho steam
launches, and the blue-jackets weighed
anchor, cast off tho lines, and tho
Hustedo was towed to an anchorage nt
tho entrance of Esquimalt harbor. Beforo the vessel was towed out of the
harbor an oflicer was seut aboard with
u message lo Cnpt. Reiners, but the
doughty sea dog would not receivo tho
Admiral's representative, and was
most arrogant and uncivil iu his lauguago and demoanor. After bearing
this officer's report the admiral ordered the vessol to be removed. Tho
right of Admiral Honeage to forcibly
remove the Hustedo is questioned by
tho harbor master, and it is thought
ho has considerably exceoded his authority, as the harbor is open to all.
Tho Hustedo was towed back to her
former moorings at Esquimalt tliis
morning and it is not thought she will
bo interfered with again. The affair
will likely give rise to considerable diplomatic correspondence between England nndGormany, butit is probable the
Emperor William's recent inspection
of tho British navy will induce him to
put up with a little matter like Ihis
without making a great fuss.
CORRESPONDENCE.
WIU Bonus Tlie UrldRe.
EniTon Colum bias—Sir, I notice in
your editorial Tuesday that you accuse
the signers of the petition to the counoil,
re railway mattors, of taking new ground
altogether on tho bridgo question, and
that they wish to repudiate the additional bonus of §100,000 for tbe bridge. I
mny Bay that such is not the cose, and
that you aro entirely wrong in this conclusion,
Tho suggestions contained in this
petition aro based on the old agreements, and pre-supposo that the
railway company will prefer to build
a ferry instead of a bridge, the
former being so much tho cheaper; but I
can say for myself and the balance of the
signets, that if tho S. R. R. Co. desire
to build the bridge instead of the ferry,
by all means let us have tho bridge and
include it nnd the additional bonus in
tho now by-law, and mako one job of it,
I will vote for it myself with both hands,
and J don't think there is a voter in tho
city but what will do the samo. I am
authorized by a number of the signers of
the petition to state that if the ft. R. R.
Co. declined to build the bridge, wc would
be Milling to grant a bonus so as to establish a free ferry between this city and
Browniville; and our oity repreacuta-
tive Bhould call the attention of the government to the urgent necessity thatexiats
for the construction of a traffic bridge
across Pitt river nnd also the need of putting tho North Arm road in good repair.
This is .one of tho great means of retaining our trade with the district, by keeping all means of communication in first
class order; and I think now that the
city owns tho K, de K,, she might bo
hauled np to the exhibition grounds,
aud a better boat chartered to take her
place till the S. It. II. Co. decide what
they arc going to do.--Yours truly,
A.- M. Heiuuno.
