Johnny, show this jay to 712, and
see that he doesn't blow out tbo gas.
An exchange gives the following
good advice: Don't be a chump.
Don't want the earth. Don't think
it was built for you alone and other
people put on it to contribute to your
comfort. Don't coddle yourself into
the belief that your only lookout in
this world is for Ko. 1. Strange as
it may seem to you, there are millions of men beside yourself, and
they have as much right to live as
you. Just sit and talk to yourself
awhile and see if you don't come
pretty near being a chump, Don't
imagine that a few extra dollars
mako you a man's superior. Don't
try to make every one believe that
you aro the best man living. Be a
man. Don't be a prig. Don't be a
chump.
Erastus Wiman delivered an
address beforo the Portland, Maine,
boo rd of trade, the other day, in
which he held that commercial union
would be a greater step in the direction of annexation than any other
that oould be taken, "So far as
trade and commerce waa concerned
the plan proposed would procure all
that could be achieved by political
union. In the future if a political
union was deemed desirable ib would
be brought about much sooner by an
intimate trade rotation than by
standing off and maintaining a separation by the rigidity of a customs
line four thousand miles long." Commercial union as the first step
toward annexation ia now the plea I

In the Oats-kills and other parts of
New York state a curious industry
consists in converting beech trees
into wood flour. A whole trunk is
stripped of its bark, put into a huge

These are thrown into a mill and

Hour. This is used, it is Baid, for
making puper, although the farmers
hint that it is taken west by government contractors to feed the Indians
and supply our army with daily
bread. In vory dry summer weather
this dust fills the air of the mill and
is often oxplosive. Twice there have
been accidents of this kind in this
industry. The effect of this sort
of flour on tho Indians is uot stated,
—Tor if Times.
Stanley is being blamed in some
quarters because in pushing his way
through Central Africa many of the
natives accompaning his expedition,
or those opposing its advance, have
lost their lives. We have only
Stanley's own account of the march
to judge by, and from his own frank
aud truthful narrative tho harsh
inference bas been drawn that a
ruthless sacrifice of human life has
taken place. The New York Tribune asks with fairness that judgment ho suspended till Stanley has
an opportunity of more fully explaining the difficulties and dangers
whieh surrounded the expedition,
and the necessities which caused Ijim
to act as he did, The charge belies
the nature of tbe man and the
character of his previous explorations in Africa, When setting out
from London on the present expedition lie said: "Fight the blacks!
Never if I can help it." Such a
man is not likely to have acted
inhumanly, as his critics now appear
to think.
Women who wish to preserve the
slimnoss and contour of their figure
must begin by learning to stand
woll, That is explained to moan
tho throwing forward and upward
of the chest, tho flattening of the
back, with the shoulder blades held
in their proper places, and the
dufinito curving in of the small of
the back, thus throwing the whole
weight of the body upon tho hips,
No other women hold themselves so
well as the aristocratic English
women. Much of their beauty lies
in their proud carriage, the delicate
erectness of their figures and the
lino poise of their heads. The same
aristocratic carriage ia within tho
reach of any American girl who
takes the pains to have it; it is only
the question of a few years of
eternal vigilance, never relaxing her
watchfulness over herself and, sitting or standing, always preserving
her erectness and poise, the result
being that at the end of that time it
has becomo second nature to her and
sho never afterwards loses it This
in a. great measure preserves the
figure, because it keeps the muscles
firm and well strung, and prevents
thn sinking down of the flesh around
tho waist and the hips, so common
in women over 30, and which it is
perfectly easy to escape. Another
thing to avoid is a bad habit of going
upstairs, whioh most women do,
faont forward, with the chest con*
tracted, which, as well as an indolent,
slouuhy manner of walking, ia injurious to the heart and lungs.—Mabel

Cuicaoo, April 26.—Ex-Governor
Alger (if Michigan, who is ou his way

reason it is not uow brought enst is the
necessarily high freight rates by rail.
Some uf it now finds its way to New
Vcrk Ijy vessel, but the voyage is a
long otfo. For several years, appro*
dating the fact that the Michigan and
Wisconsin pine lands were being exhausted* I have had my eye open for
now fields, and three years ogo I visited the Washington region, making a
personal examination of the field. I
think I am a fair judge of timber, I
don't hesitate in pronouncing the product of those regions in evory way superior to our northern pine, and other
countries recognize the fact. While I
was in Tacoma I saw 0 vessels, bound
for England, Germany and China, loading at tho wharves. I know that at
the present timo, he concluded, "it
cannot be pro6tably carried east by
rail, because I have figured tho matter
with the roads touching that district,
and it has been found impossible to
carry the stuff 2,000 miles at anything
liko a reasonable rate. If tho Nicaragua canal is over built, an enormous
lumber traffio by wator will bo sure to
spring up, and it will possibly come
just at the time wo need it most.

Mr. Charlton, M.P., said that there
was no hope of preserving intact the
French language and institutions. If
the present state of affairs continued
the church of Rome would soon possess two thirds of the estate of the
province.
ANOTHER vessel overdue.
San Francisco, April 25.—The
anxiety expressed in the* despatches as
existing in the navy department about
the safety of the Monorgahela is not
shared in by tho officers at the Mare
Island Navy Yard. Schoolmaster Wit*
liams, late of the Vandalia and now on
the receiving ship, Independence, at
Mare Island, says that on the seoond
day after the Alameda left Apia, from
tbe deck of this steamer he distinctly
saw two largo vessels evidently bound
for Samoa, and one of them be judges
was the Monougahola ; the other he
supposes was the Meliit, a vessel which
left San Francisco nearly two months
ego with a mixed cargo of stores for
tho aiuue destination. It may therefore be considered almost certain that
the Monongahela was at Apia a few
days after the departure from thore of
the Alameda.
ANOTHER DEFECTIVE SHIP.
San Francisco, April 25.—An evening paper says the reason why tlie trial
trip of the cruiser Charleston has been
bo long delayed, is because of a very
Berious defect having been discovered
in her machinery. It was found when
the test was made the other day, that
the Charleston's air pipes 1 did not
create the desired and expected vacuum.
Instead of the vacuum being 28 inches,
it was only 19 inches. So now they
aro being slowly and painfully adjusted. An official of the Union Iron
Worka Company, the builders of the
cruiser, when spoken to regarding the
publication, refused to make any statement whatever.

Washington, D. 0., April 26.—
Secretary Blaine is a great deal better
to-day and about recovered from his
recent attack of lumbago. Owing to
inclement weather to-day, he remained
at the hotel, and did not go to the department at all. Consequently the
official visit to him of the new British

again been postponed.

New York, April 25.—Recorder

A   K1.EPTROMANI0.
Chicago, April 25.—Mrs. Josophine
Ktrkman, sister of Geneml Drake, of
Desmoincs, III., the founder of Drake

a wine trust imminent.
Aew York, April 25. —It waa announced to-day that the long continued effort to bring Californian wine
growers together had at last taken a
definite shape, and the details of a
great wine growers, and handlers, trust
will soon bo given out. J. Portal, representing the viticultural commission of the atateof California at the Paris
Exhibition, took steps before his departure to perfect an orgaanization for
tho combination of both the vine yard
and wine interests of the state of California. He has tho support of large
capitalists and the assurance of additional support and co-operation from
France,

The Treasure Aboard the Warship
Trenton Recovered by Divers at Samoa.
MR, SMALLEY H CABLE.
London, April 26.—General Boulanger came just in time to divert at*
tontion from Birmingham, Telegrams
to the Boulangist papers in Paris re*
telegraphed here say that a hundred
thousand Englishmen welcomed him
with enthusiasm. Divide this number
by 10, omit "enthusiasm" and substitute "good humored curiosity" and you
will come much nearer the truth.
Mubl; English papers show only a moderate interest in his coming; in the declarations to the syndicate of interviewers whu were invited to his hotel
to receive his confidence, the great
question, whether he was aeaaick between Ostend and Dover, remains in
dispute. His appearance -on deck at
Dover iu a glossy Bilk hat and blue
coat moved British critics on costumes
to laughter. One of his carnation bo-
quets at Charing Cross came from a
conjurer's wife, and a baby was provided for him to kiss. Suoh are the
circumstances in which he, whom his
partisans olaim aa coming the saviour
of society iu France, makes his firat appearance on the British stage.
COURTS DISCUSSION.
Berlin, April 26.—The National
Gazette says the government is in favor
of a thorough discussion of tbo Samoan
question iuthe reichstag.
A BROKEN CABLE.
London, April 26.—It is reported
the United States Direct Cable Co.'s
submarine wires have been interrupted
since April 19th. No official notice
haa bean given of the fact, tho business
beiug transferred to otber lines of the
combination.
STRONG CHARGE.
Dublin, April 26.—Among the depositions made out at Falcarragh, on
which the charges in the ease of Mr.
Conebeare, M. P., are based, is one
that a public meeting he called for
"Cheers for the plan of campaign,"
aud followed this up with the exclamation "To hell with Balfour."
WILL be voted,
London, April 26.—Owing to the
closeness of the vote in the city council, granting the freedom of the
oity to Mr. Parnell, arrangements
are being made to submit the
question lo the popular vote. The
unionists are scheming to defeat the
honor offered to parnell,
the great uoulakger,
London, April 26.—In an interview with Gen. Boulanser the latter
reiterated what he stated yesterdsy,
tbat he would issue no manifesto at
present. He disavowed any intention
of fomenting war between France and
Germany, nevertheless the general said
be did not consider the future of
France settled for ever by the war of
1870. He declared he would never
coiisent to have France insulted. He
was moat anxious to cement France,
England and Russia by friendship.
A REMARKABLE  SCENE.
Madrid, April 26.—There was a
remarkable scene in tbe Catholic congress yesterday when Prof. Sauohez
Castro finished his powerful address,
demanding the restoration of temporal
power to the popo, and denouncing
Italy fur her treatment of the holy
father. Tho entire assemblage rose to
thoir feet crying "Long life to the* papacy.'' The attitude of the congress
in the direction of the temporrl power,
is likely to create complications between Spain and Italy.
IMMIGRANTS.
London, April 25.—The Parsian
sailed to-day with 100 saloon, 130 intermediate and 775 steerage passengers. A large majority of the settlers
are booked to the North West and are
a very healthy looking olass. The
Allan Company to-day notified their
agents that the Friday sailings of their
steamers would be dropped and tho
regular Thursday aervice resumed.
The Bishop of Caledonia sailed to-day

The Wtddon extradition bill has
passed tho houso of commons, and
will become law. This measure,
which wo have noticed before, is a
beneficent and most necessary one,
and will enable Canada to get .rid of
a very undesirable class of American
refugees that transgress the laws of
their country and skip across tlie
line to enjoy their ill-gotten gains.
It is tbe high-toned American thief,
principally, that will hardly bless
the Canadian legislators in bis heart
for passing this measure. It was
greatly feared by the members of
this class who have already gained
sanctuary in Canada that the bill
would have passed in its original
shape, containing retroactive clauses.
These were expunged, however,
while the bill was undergoing amendment, and the act will only affect
cases occurring after it is put upon
the statute books. This is to be regretted, considering the number of
genteel scoundrels that will thus go
unwhipt of justice, but a safer nnd
fairer principle of legislation has
been adhered to ns it is.
Quite an anti-Chinese feeling is
working to a head at Vancouver
just now, and labor organizations
are combining und reiterating the
old watchword "The Chinese must
go!" Chinese competition is certainly, and deservedly, an obnoxious
article to white labor, nnd so long as
legitimate measures are taken for its
exclusion no one will object. But
Chinese lmve certain rigiits, just the
same as other peoplo, and it is to be
hoped that these will not bo allowed
to be outraged by too zealous "antis,"
as was done—and to Vancouver's
disgrace, winked at by tho civic
' authorities—a little over two years
ago, when the provincial authorities
had to interfere and pluce tha city
under provincial polico. It is
hardly likely that lesson will be
forgotten, but the hoodlum element, on the coast, has always
proved itself bo ruddy, where Chinese woro concerned, to make agitation an excuse for violence, that it
behooves the Vancouver authorities
to guard against any approach to
tbe scenes enacted at tbo "terminal
city" in 1887, should there be any
disposition toward such actions on
.tho part ol tho present agitators,
which we do not say thore is.
Apropos cf the comparative merits
of eastern Canadians as immigrants,
the following testimony is of interest, and is corroborative of our views
on the subject expressed in another
urticle in this column. In a letter
written from Los Angeles to bis
paper, Mr. Andrew Pattullo, editor
of the Woodstock Sentinel Review,
who is at present travelling through
- California, says of the Canadians in
that state: "The reason for their
tiuccess is not far to seek. It is no
national vanity that pronounces
tbem superior to tho average American, Their success is a tribute to
the school system of Ontario, and to
the home training of Canadian
mothers. They are more thoroughly
trained, better informed, more willing to work, moro frugal and steady
in their habits than young Americans. With clear heads, sound
bodies, a willingness to work, and a
determination to succeed they distance their competitors in the race.
Too many natives of these states refuse to work. They go in for big
speculations, and uro usually waiting
for something to turn up, While
tbey wait for some chance to make
monoy quickly and easily tboy live
. high—much highc-r than Canadians,
In the meantime 'tenderfoot'from
Othor -countries do the work, make
the money, and (ill tho places open
to them. American business men
and capitalists thoroughly understand this. Canadians generally
deserve thu respect and confidence
shown tbem in this country. They I
seldom rob their employers or disgrace their country. In the expressive language of the West, in the
race of life thoy 'get there' as often
as nny class on this coast." The
same is true of British Columbia,
Our most enterprising and successful
young business men have boen raised
in the eastern provinces, ond wo are
glad to say that this class are being
increasingly attracted towards the
"gem of the west." There is room
for more.
During the recent session of the
provincial legislature T. Basil Humphreys, otherwise "the Hon. Tom,"
made, or  is credited with haying
made,  some  vory ill-natured and
foolish remarks, in his usual windy
style, about what he called "Canadians," who,' he remarked, were ap-
pt-dpriately termed "North American Ohinamen."   Some eastern papers have got hold of  this obscure
bosh ' and are using it to illustrate
the  sentiment  that  exists in the
averoffe  British  Oolumbia   breast
towards his brother of the eastern
provinces,   The troth is that "Hon,
Tom" has  resurrected  an old cob-
weby epithet that has been stored
on  the top shelf for years, and the
faet that he did so shows just how
wen*—or ill—hois keeping step with
tho march of events and the progress
of tho province—and nothing more.
If  "Hon. Tom" actually did mako
uso   of   tbo coarse and uncalled-for
expressions which  liavo, naturally
enough, wounded the sensibilities of
our eastern friends, we would advise
him to come from out his musty and
moss-grown  cupboard  and get on
some exposed and breezy position—
Race Rocks, or Government street,
Victoria, would bo a good place—
and let the wind blow through his
whiskers, until ho gets a new idea
into his brain.    There was a time,
before wo were brought into touch
with our eastern brethren, by means
of   the railway and telegraph, that
wo did not entertain any more affectionate regard for them than they
did for us.   But that stato of things
is   rapidly  becoming   a   memory
merely.   Wo understand eaoh other
better now.   Wo have a good deal
of "truck" with eacb other, which is
constantly increasing, and is bound
to increase, commercially, socially,
nnd politically.   So far from being
prejudiced against "Canadians," wo
are, as rapidly as can be expected,
cultivating  a   national  spirit and
learning  to  considor  ourselves as
Canadians, although   the  forco of
habit still makes ub British Columbians in the first place. People from
any of the provinces, howovor, we
havo come to regard as preferable
immigrants  for populating and developing  our  province and its resources.    It  stands to reason thut
these are the most desirable immigrants.    The  institutions  of  tho
various provinces being very similar,
little  or   no breaking-in process is
required  in this respect, and such
immigrants  can  take their places
almost immediately and adapt themselves to their surroundings as valuable and useful members of society.
It is true that some of our eastern
frionds, settling  in   this province,
have to learn a littlo from our somewhat freer ways and, perhaps, more
liberal style of living and doing, but
this is soon imbibed with tho air,
and is a distinct and welcome acquisition   to tbo new comer from the
east. On the other hand, the eastern
immigrant   confers  a benefit upon
tho land of his adoption by the infusion of  stricter business methods
and general conservatism in all departments.   Oh, no, "Hon. Tom," it
won't   do   for   you   to malign our
brother from tho east.   British Columbia knows on which side its bread
is buttered.   It wants botli capital
and   population, and   fully realizes
(from actual experience and observation) that the men and money of tlio
eastern provinces are just the "stud'"
to a-ssist in developing and building
up   this new country on a sound
basis,   commercially,   socially  and
politically.     Como   west,   Johnny
Canuck, come west, and we'll drown
"Hon. Tom" in the sea if  he ventures to look cross-eyed at our welcome guests from the east,

nolMwl-r THE SHROUD   INDUSTRY.
Kiioi-raons Proportions to Which It Has
Grown Wiiti'ii ii Fow Years.
In tlio past fivo years, Bays tho Philuilcl-
■ phiit Times, the shrew.1 industry in thin city
1 lias grown to enormous proportions- and
this dress ot the dead, -while it iius-bocomo
unpopular with somo, has grown steadily In
fuvor with othors. The reason for the great
inci'case ia tho IjuhIuoss is on account of the
steady growth of tho population, and because tho bigger tbo population tbo bigger
the deatb rato.
It used to be that shrouds wero mado almost entirely by layers-out of the dead and
poor women- who mado a regular business
of ib and worked early and late, according
to the number of ordors they had. Shrouds
wero thon made at short notice, becauso
nftei the person died thero wasn't much
tin-o tc design and make tho shroud- and
women worked all night to fill thoir orders.
Nowadays thero ure vory few professional
| ahroud-nialtcrs in this city. Theso few ato
mostly women, who work regularly for some
partioular undertaker, but tboy don't inako
■ much. A shroud-makor said that ahe used
to havo a nico income from hor business,
but that tho big uudurtaltera' supply stores
had ruined the business for tho shroud-
makers about town, becauso they oan make
the shrouds for a great deal less money.
Tho ivoman was stitching away at a shroud
at tho timo. "This Is for an old Quaker
lady," she said, "who died yoslorduy. I
must- finish it beforo I go to sleep. What
buainoBs I get uow Is almost entirely for
dressing old pornonB, principally women. It
used to be tbat nearly evory body was burled
in shrouds, and that isn't moro tlinn half a
dozui years ago."
A prominent undertaker, who has what is
known in tho business as a" tony trade,"
said: "I don't suppoBo I havo used moro
tban half a dozen shrouds a yoar. With my
class of ttade the custom is dyiug out. The
peoplo I bury aro nearly nil cared for in
their sickness by professional nurses, who
havo become as thick as hops in this city,
Nearly ovory physician has a list of a dozen
men or women-ho can recommend. Well,
tho professional nurse--, in the past fivo
years have got to preparing the dead for
burial, and thoy can dress a corpso just as
well us thoy can a live person. My customers prefer to havo their relatives buried in
eithor tho clothes they woro in life or a
similar suit. A great many peoplo I bury
now are buried m their dress suits that
they have worn nt weddings, receptions,
balls or banquets. It takes two persons to
dross a body, but ft Is dono easily nowadays.
Five or six years ago It was looked upon as
almost an impossibility, and up to that time
nearly evory body was buried in shrouds.
For my part, I like to sec a person prepared
for tho grave to look as uatural as they did
in life, and they certainly don't look like,
themselves If they aro attired in a shroud."
The biggest undertakers' supply storo iu
tho country is in this city, whero there aro
500 stylos of shrouds to choeso from, ranging in prices from $175 down to $10. Each
samplo shroud is marked with a tag showing tho price and is numbered. In a big
book each number is accompanied by a
detailed description of tbe quality of the
materials used and the stylo. Most of theso
sample shrouds arc duplicated in stock, so
that au undertaker can take his customer
to the supply store and pick out tho style
and take it right oft. If tho samplo isn't in
stock tho supply store can mako it up in a
jiffy, for thoy omploy a largo number of
persons to mako them. The Bhroud-makors
nro vory happy, and sing and joke and
laugh ovor thoir work as much as if Hioy
wci-o.trimming bonnets. Thoro nro shroud
designers in tho factory whoso brains aro
, busy ail the timo thinking out now atyfcs.
Tlioro aro moro styles of dress for tho
dead than moro are for tho living. This big
■apply storo scuds out hundreds of shrouds
every weok, They arc shipped all over tlio
country and nro ordered from plate engravings showing tho stylo aud the price, with
nn appended description of tho material.
Bouie of the undertakers keep shrouds iu
stock, but most of them buy thom us thoy
are ordered. ■ ■.■■..».
A  YUCATAN   BULL-FIGHT.
Poor Beasts OrueUy Tortured with Fim ami
Spear-Thrusts.
Bull-fights havo beon eo many times described that I will spare tho reader thn 'details of this battlo, writes a Mexican cor*
rospondont of tbo Philadelphia Record. Suffice it to say it was us cowardly cruel ua
raostof them, eveninoro so in ono particular, uomothing whieh I had nevor seen bo*
. foro. Arter having tortured tho bull lulou
frenzy of rage thoy lassoed It nnd held It
finn.y by thohoruB whilo the pk'iidorofl iixnl
upon Its baok tho figure of u soldier in a
cocked hat and seated in a saddle. U«Ht
soldier and saddle wero made of wood,
paper ud gunpowder,forming a formidable
piece of ire-works. Whon it was firmly secured, -01 fell bock to a safo distanco, Tlm
picanores, mounted and with poised spettrs,
took their places in tin? ring nnd tho band
struck up tho Hymno Nacloiml, At tho
samo instant tho noose was slipped, liberating the pull, tho heel of the soldier wns
fired and a shower of rockets wero lot off
within a fow feet of the bull's noso. Its
first dash was furious. Maddened by tlio
winding and explosions, tho shouts of tho
crowd, and the fire and smoko of tbo engine
of torture on its back, the bull dashed blindly at every plcadoro, receiving thrust after
thrust from, their spears. Finally the
powder burned out, and tbo poor beast,
streaming wltb blood and with its buck
fearfully burnod, bellowed for mercy and
crawled feebly around tho ring looking in
vain for a way of escape, raising imploring
oyes to the spectators as If pleading to tho
mild faces* of tho women. Thus five bulls,
ono after the other, wero brought In. played
with and disposed of, and I am almost glad
to relate that In tho courso of tbe afternoon,
throo of thn brutal picadorcs wero unhorsed by their victims and carried cf for
dead. Nonoof them wero killed, however,
as 1 afterwards learned, but one was
maiucd for lifo and tho others so severely
hurt that they will not fight bulls again for
many a day.
I was uma-'cd to hoar peoplo near mo complaining bitterly becauso bull-lights aro
such tamo affairs, unlike what thoy used to
bo before the Government placed so tunny
restrictions on them that tholr dungcrs
havo been mitigated and their eitclteiiicnt
ns woll. Frosldant Diaz lately decreed that
bull-lights should bo given only on Sunday
and other fiestas, becauso whon held on
week-days tho people neglected their work
to attend them.
Not till long after sunset did the lust fight
ond- According to time-honored custom the
last bull was a comparatively tan-cone; and
with Its advent tho ring was thrown open
to tho boys, who swarmed Into the arena
und, amid roars of laughter, pulled, hauled
and bustled tho poor toro till lie could hardly stand.    	
Velocity of Eleotrio Signal*,
Wheatstone's claim of 238,000 miles per
Becond as tho velocity of olectric signals
has nover been confirmed. Prof. Gould's,
investigations show that aerial telegraph
wires on poles transmit electricity at the
rate of from 14,000 to 10,000 miles tier second, uud that tho velocity of transmission
increases with the distance between tho
wires and tho earth, or, in othorwords, with
tho hoightOf suspension; nnd that subterranean wires, liko submarine cables, transmit with reduced rapidity. Again, while
wires suspended at a given hoight are
known to transmit signals nt a velocity of
somo 12,000 miles por second, thoso that aro
suspended higher glvo a velocity of from
10,000 to 24,000 milos. • ,

Few poople have any idea of tho
immigrants that havo settled in Westminster district since tho beginning

not a steamer haB left for up river
ports during the last six weeka which
did uot carry a number of new comers,
and Bometimes as many as twenty-live
in one day. Many immigrants go up
rivor to prospect for land and return
in a fow days, having been successful in
their search. A number uf now settlers
who arrived in the country since the
beginning of tho year have already
scut east for their families. A fact
worthy ot noto iB that of all the uow
comers who have deoided to settle in
this district, not one of them has yet
beon heard to speak in other than tho
most hopeful terms of tho future.
TIiq Mendelssohn Concert.
Speaking of the Mcndelsson Quintette Club, which appealed at Vnncouvor last night, and which givcB a
concert at the Oddfellows hall, in this
city to-night, the New-Advertiser
nays: Of the performance of Mr. Ryan
in his clarionette solo it is unnecessary
to speak, for as master of the melodies
of that instrument his fame is too well
known to he enhanced by flattering
remarks, howover so well merited, nor
of the concert work of the quintette,
which wns bo effective as to defy criticisms, more especially on the part of
those less gifted than themselves. Miss
Ryan, daughter of the director, who is
a graduate of Paris Conservatory of
Mubic, and made her debut last season
in Boston with somo success, inherits
the talents of her father, nnd has added to theso a cateful training and a
cultivated expression. Miss Ryan has
a good voice, mezzo rather than first
soprano, and sings with very good taste
and effectiveness. Both of her songs
were rapturously encored, Herr Anton Hekking'a execution on the' violin*
cello is truly wonderful, and is inspired by scarcely less than genius. It is
the "occupation of the soul," and is'
characterised by a strong nervous
force that is irresistible in ita effect,

Sicnin vs. Man Power.
An exciting race took place yesterday aftornoon on the North Arm botween tho steamer Fairy Queen and
six Indians in a racing skiff. Tho Indians woro full of pride and conceit,
and thought that their strong arms
were capable of producing more speed
than the engines of the steamer. For
two milos tlie plucky SiwuBhcs held
load, pulling like heroes and straining
e-'ery niuaulo to widen the distance between them and tho Fairy Queen.
Tho Btr. was urgud lo its bast, but it
was not till tho race had lasted two
miles lhat the superior staying powers
of steam were mado manifest, and Bhe
gradually forged ahead of tho craft
propelled by man power. Though defeated the Siwashes were by no means
disheartened, ns they merely wished
to prove that they could attain a greater
Bpeed than their opponent, and did
not pretend, conceited as they wore,
to be able to stand the stiaiti us long as
a steam engine.

♦ChineseTroubles Anticipated.
The Chinoso merchants of this cily,
who havo branch stores in Vancouver,
havo recoived private information to
tho effect that serious Chineso troubles
are likely to aviso in Vancouver about
the 1st of May, when it is said the
Mongolians will be forced to quit that
city, Tho merchants aro, in conse*
quonco, greatly alarmed, and are making preparations to remove their goods
to Westminster, should the troubles
assume a threatening aspect. They
are closing accounts with Vancouver
purchasers, and will send uo more
goods thoro until tho expected move
has passed. A series of atiti-Cliinese
meetings have been held iu Vancouver
during the last few weeks, and it is
said that a general lockout of ChincBO
laborers will bo onforced un the first
dny of May. It is to be hoped that
if any lockuut does arise tho abuses
suffered by tho Chinese laborers in
1887 will not bo repeated. Tho only
foaBiblo system of expelling Chinese
laborers is to censo giving them employment. Then thoy will bo forced
to look for work elsewhere.

Dominion Parliament.
Ottawa, April 25.—In the houso of
commons to-day, Mr, Mara, on tho
motion to go into committee of supply,
brought up it matter uf paramount importance to British Columbia, Ho
drew the attention of tho government
to the necessity of solving tho problem
as to the bost method to adopt for the
development of the mineral resources
of the provinco. Ho said thut for
four years past (he mineral lauds in
the railway belt have been held up owing to the suit as to tho ownership of
the precious metals. The minora,
though they prospected anil discovered veins of minerals, were unable to
secure titles to them owing to the conflict of jurisdiction. Capitalists wore
equally slow to invest. He instanced
as a caso of those difficulties that of the
Selkirk Company at Illecillewaet. Two
hundred thousand dollars had been expended, but to secure returns more
money was needed, Though the claims
were recorded with both governments,
the company was not able to satisfy
English capitalists, who finally backed
out on the ground of the insecurity of
the title. Those two sots of mining
laws were diametrically opposed to
each other. Tho Dominion government in the railway belt owned tho
surface rights, white tho precious
metals belonged to the province. Who
was thus to decide upon the titles except a resort was had to litigation) If
the silver in any claim  exceeds the
§alena ore, then the province has juris-
iction, which changes to the Dominion if tlie ore ou another day should
carry more galena. He quoted authorities to ihow that the two were found
side by side. The regulations were
essentially different. The Dominion
law required a working vertically,
while the provincial regulation enabled
the miners to follow the dips end
spurs. These conflicting lawi should
be assimilated and administered by one
government. He suggested the necessity of the Dominion exchanging the
lands in the railway belt for lands own
ed by the provinco in the Pence river
district. In tho meantime he hoped
that the Dominion would concede to
the province tho authority to administer tho baser metals in the belt,
Mr. Dowdnoy, as an old miner,
favored the suggestion and promised
that he would enter iuto negotiations
to the end that it might be carried
out. '
