Here in a man who ia the benefactor of his race, or wants to bo. A
German musician has discovered
tifct many persons who study music
npctioe too muoh, Funny that no
nusioian ever found that out before.
Other people have known it ever so
long. 	
A. Royal Wit.—"How are the
crops doing 1" said the Czar to a
favorite at court. "Pretty fairly,
your Highness," was tho reply, "Although in some quarters tlio peoplo
are complaining of too much reign."
"Li:l; til eti 1 tiiltc twenty years in
Siberia to dry up," answered hin
majesty, who is quick atropnrtoe.
' All the accounts of tho experiments with smokeless powder at the
Spandau sham fight recently concur
in saying that no smoke was visible
at a distance of 300 yards, and that
no noise wns board beyond a slight
tuppirfg. A strange effect was produced by the spectnelo of a large
mass of troops in firing position
seemingly inactive, but really pouring forth a deadly lire.
"Tho sort of criminal," says the
Umpire, "'who succneds in going
ovor the Falls in a barrel should be
severely punished for the Bin of
returning alive in a world that already has more fools than it knows
how to get rid of, but no mercy need
bo shown to the wretch who fastens
in a barrel a creature us mueh moro
intelligent and valuable than himself as a Newfoundland dog nnd
st'inls him to his death."
At New York on Friday (to-dayj,
says an exchange, unless tho governor or courts interefere, five men
will be hanged on the same gallows
for the crime of murder. Their
names are Nolan, Packenham, Lewis,
Giblin and Oarolin. Two of the
men killed their wive3, two womon
with whom they lived, and the
other murdered a woman who refused to change a counterfeit five-
dollar bill which ho presented.
Miss Hortenso (of Boston)—"Indeed, I can hardly look into the
deep, opalescent amethyst of. the

flumes of souls on their way to
heaven.' Thon, too, the soul-fulness
of inner metality is grand I Have

Mr. Olmrlos (also of Boston)—"No j

The Ottawa Journal finds that a
charge of bcring slow in delivering
judgments cannot be sustained
against the Supreme Court of Canada. "Thnro are now only seven appeals standing before the Supreme
Court for judgment. Five have only
been waiting since May. One has
been waiting since October of last
year, and the seventh, which has
been standing a year and a half, was
a case which was first argued before
the Into Judge Henry, and, being
undecided by him, bad to be reheard
after his death. The fact seems to
be that the Supreme Court is clear
of businoss to a degreo exceptional
before legal tribunals."
At first races between ocean
steamships were deprecated as dangerous, and tho companies emphatically denied tho nowspaper roports
of such and such a steamer racing
with another. Now that tlie publio
mind is familiarized with the idea,
and no injury seems to have been
done to transatlantic travel, the
racing is done quito openly. Steamers belonging to several of the lines
running into New York are now
urgo'l to full speed in order to make
,1 record, riot for safety, but for fast
travelling. An accident'will happen during ono of those contests,
nnd then wo shall have steamship
uY-ncrs clamoring denials that racing
had anything to do with it. The
price paid will perhaps he costly in
life and monoy, but then the most
valuable experience always comes
high. 	
An Illinois postmaster has written
a funny letter to President Harrison, lie is a Democrat, and without waiting to bo turned out quietly
sent in his resignation, expressing
the following sentiments: "While
the offico lias agreed with mo 1 havo
iu the main agreed with the office,
and whilo 1 might resouably entertain the hopo of holding on for eight
months longer, yet I feel it my
duty to tender you ray resignation,
lifitig a Democrat, I have preached
that 'to the victors belong the spoils.'
I feel disposed to practice thut which
1 preach. Your immediate predecessor hoped to build up his party
by keeping tho opposition in oilice.
You are probably aware, if you are
at all familiar with the vocabulary,
nf tho truo and trite saying that his
itium) is now 'Dennis,' I am moved,
further, to tender you my resignation, becauso of the anxiety of a barnyard full of patriots to succeed me.
1 believe that.atarifl'isatax. They
ilo not, Therefore, they are of your
own birth and kindred, and he who
provides not for his own household
is worse than an infidel, I am told
that you are not built that way."
If anyono wonders how so witty a
man hid himself away in a country
postmastership it is sufficient to
know that by profession he is a
newspaper editor, who took a respite
from duty for four years, and now
returns willingly to the task of
moulding publio opinion.

THE UHKAT ROUTE.
Ottawa, Aug. 28,—Tho nctiwinf tlio
Btitish hotiPo of (-ominous in granting
a subsidy if sJBOO.COO for thu usIuUish-
nient of a mail service betweon Vancouver and Hong Kong, is creating a
big stir in political circles hero. It
promises to revolutionize British trade
from India and China. The minutes
of the bill received by the government
hero from tho imperial authorities,
utiles that: "Though tho scheme is
not justifiable upou postal reasons
alone, it offers an alternativo service
which eaves several delays as compared
with the Suck routo, and is therefore
of considerable valuo from a - postal
point of view. It has land transit lying wholly within British territory and
its military and naval authorities believe it to be of the highest importance. The offer uf the company to
construct mail steamers which could be
employed by the admiralty as armed
cruisers, in ease of need, nlso accords
with the policy already adopted in the
caso of certain other steamship companies. Tho service between Halifax,
Quebeo and Hong Kong will be ono
continuous and complete service. At
intervals of four weeks vessels will
call at Yokohama uud Shanghai, The
contract will run for ten years. The
admiralty clauso provides fur the conveyance of troops and supplies at cost.
Tho C.P.R. will present an alternative routo fur tho Australian and
New Zealand mails. At present thoso
mails when Bent through America tra*
vel by way of Now York aud San
Francisco, and a specially high rate is
paid for United States land transit.
Under the proposed contract it will bo
possible to scud them by way of Quebec, or Halifax and Vancouvor on payment of ordinary postal union rates uf
transit to the Canadian post office,
and possibly the mail route by way of
the Paciiic to Australia will bo diverted from San Francisco to Vancouver."

Toronto, Aug. 23.—A tragedy was
brought to light last night when a
policeman discovered, floating in the

ahuwed evidence nf having lost ita

which evidently had been attached to
the neck for the purpose of keeping
the body out uf sight.
THE JESUITS' ACT.
Mostrral, Aug. 23.—The secretary of the Montreal branch of the
Equal Rights association Bays the
membership of that branch is filling
fast, but Protestant? show a dislike to
offend Catholic neighbors by publicly
identifying themselves with the Equal
Rights movement, Thero was difficulty in convincing Catholic fellow
citizons that the revolt nt the Jesuit
act was not an attack upon the Catholic church, Tho count*/ of Pontine
has formed an association and will
hold mau meotings next month. It is
expected Mr. McCarthy will address
a mass meeting in Montreal next
month, and ward branches of the sb*
sociation nro oxpeeted to be formed in

FOUR HANGINGS.
New York, Aug. 23.—Four murderers wero hanged in the Tombs this
this morning, Volan, Puokenhnm,
Lewis and Caroline. Tho first two
were hanged nt 0:40 o'clock, nnd Lewis
and Caroline nt 7:03. The executions
went off without n hitch and Lewis
strangled to death. Caroline protested
his innocence on the scaffold. Tho
situation of the gallows, on oach of
which two men wero .hanged, was such
that an intervnl of 5 minutes was neces
sary betweon two executions.   Though
the gallows were  a considerable distance apart, tlie noise of the drop on
tho gallows which first sent Pocken*
ham and Volan out of the world, must
have been plainly heard by Lewis and
Caroline.   The four men went out of
the world with a firm belief that their
salvation was in God,   The scene in
the little chape), where mass was said
this morning, and the subsequent fare*
wells between the men were very impressive.   Tiro Catholic priests,  who
administered consolation to one during
tho last hours, stayed with them the
entire lust minute.   The noise accompanying the hangings Inside the prison
must have beon plainly hoard by Giblin, tlie respited murderer.   Preparation;; fur conducting  tho  first  condemned to bo executed to  tho gallows
enn 1 in01 iced at ubout 0:30.   At  0:35,
tho jury, composed entirely of   newspaper men, was placed In position.  At
0:45 Caroline and Lewis wero taken
acroBS the prison yard to the  boy's
prison,  where they were pinioned,
Caroline was smoking, puffing hatd at
a big cigar.   As soon as Lewis and
Caroline had been  transferred,  the
sheriffs ret urnedand a moment later the
hangmen wen summoned to make preliminary preparations for the hanging
of Puckenham and Volan.   As soon as
these were completed the hangman returned to his placo under the gallows
tree, and in a few minutes Pockham
aud Volan were led out on the route
to the scaffold.   The sheriff and under
sheriff led the way while the condemned were flanked on one side by
the priests.   They walked with firm
step, but their faces wore anxious ex*
pressions.   Both men looked around
as they walked to the gallows, glancing
from one person to another as though
hungrily searching for a familiar face.
Tho men had emerged from the prison
at 6:48, and two of the nooses were adjusted a minute later and the black caps
drawn.   Tho rope holding the weight
was cut in a twinkling and the bodies
of the two murders shot up in tho air
adistanceof about four foet and fell
back to within two feet of the ground.
Pookenham died in two minutes, while
Volan survived a minute longer. They
were allowed to hang some 30 minutes
beforo being cut down aud placed in
coffins.   The priest stood by each of
tho condemned men whispering words
of cousolation in their ears to tho last
moment.

MOISTURE FOR DAKOTA.
Jamestown, Dak., Aug. 21.—Prcf.
Warren Upborn, member of the United
States geological surrey, who has been
on duty in Dakota for four years and
has made extensive examinations of
Dakota weather conditions, says that
farmers aud others can pluck up their
courage, as the end of the dry period ia
at hand, and the neit change will
bring tho uniformly wet season the
old timers talk about. Mr. Upham
is confident that this period of chango
from maximum to minimum moisture,
and from tho least moisture to the
greatest again, occurs over an average
range of ten or twelve yean. The dry
seasons began here in 1883, and their
limit haa now been reached. The lake
shores examined show regular fluctuations of wet and dry periods, and timo
required to accomplish these agrees
perfectly with the memories of old
trappers, Indians, and old timers who
have beon questioned on the subject.
Aa suro as the laws of nature have
been indelibly written in the rise aud
fall of these lakes, so sure is the wet
period now about to begin.
THE LONGEST FAST.
Indianapolis, Aug, 20.—Robert
Marvil, after fasting 37 days, died this
morning. His case is ao extraordinary
that it has attracted the attention not
only uf a curious public, but of the
medical fraternity far and near. He
was 85 years of age. On June 13th
Inst Marvel ate his laat square meal.
For 36 days he took absolutely nothing into his stomach. On the 38th
day he bit off a piece of pie, but did
not eat it. On tho 30th day he drank
a small quantity of milk, and at irregular periods he continued to do bo.
All told ho haB dnnk not to exceed
ouo gallon of milk in the 37 days that
have elapsed sinco he began to fust.
The effect of this abstinence is such as
would be expected. The faster re*
duced himself to a living shadow. Sore
oyes came upon him by nason of his
long confinement, and evidently Marvel has not only suffered long but
severely. His fast is the longest ou
record so far as known.

London, Aug. 23.—Tho atriko of
tliu dock yard employees is spreading,
embracing lurgo numbers uf men m

carriers, are joining the strike as also
are railway car men. Tho laborers in

works are closed. All classes of unskilled labor in London * threaten to

MRS. MAYBRICK,
Liverpool, Aug. 23.—Mrs. May*
brick received news of tho commutation of her sentence at 2 o'clock this
morning, and was much affected thereby, although incapable in her weak
state of any marked manifestation of
emutiun. Tho chaplain of tiic jail
visited her at breakfast time, at which
hour her condition reached the weakest point since her conviction, by reason of revulsion of feeling following
the reprieve.   She is now completely
firostrated and it is feared sho will not
ive long in the confinement prescribed
in the modification of her sentence.

London, Aug. 22,— Iu tho house of
commons to-night Mr. Edward T.
Gourley addressed an inquiry tu tho
government as to what action had been
taken, if any, to secure redress for tho
unwarranted seizures uf British sealing vosscls 011 tho high seas by American cruisers. Sir James Ferguson,
the under foreign secretary, replying
to Mr. Gourley's inquiry, stated that
negotiations were now in progress between her majesty's government and
that at Washington on the subject of
the seizures referred to. He hnd no
doubt whatever that a tatisfactory settlement of tho Behring Sea difficulty
would be reached between the two
governments.

Billy, a Fort Rupert Indian, was
charged with having liquor in hia possession. Billy is in the habit of getting on frequent sprees and lived in
dread of forgetting his name till a
friendly seafaring man tatooed it in
most elaborate style across the back
of both bands, Being now safe un
this point he gets gloriously drunk on
every occasion with a cheerfulness and
energy worthy of better things. Wii*
Ham pleaded not guilty, but as the
whiskey was found in his pocket the
court paid no attention to Iub protestations and Sued him $25 and costs or
in default 6 weeks m gaol, Billy was
also fined $5 for being drunk, which
fine seemed to cause him great annoyance.
William Roe, chrrgod with supplying liquor to Indians, pleaded not
guilty, and as there waa somo doubt as
to tbe evidence at hand, he waa discharged with a severe caution.
Jas, Balfour charged with boing
drunk and incapable was fined $2.50,
Chprley, au Indian, admitted to
being drunk and incapable and was
fined 8500 or 10 days in default.

Yesterday morning Captain Ham-

at the request of the principals of the

the school in the afternoons until further notice for the purpose of giving
tho young ladies uf the upper divisions

direction, and specimens of 1 is handiwork, whioh havo boen on exhibition

Friday Kvcnlng, Angus' 21.. 1889.
The vacancy in tho cabinet has
been tilled und tlie appointment
ratified by tho doctors. The next
political event in the province is the
election of a representative for Lillooet district. Mr, D. M. Eberts,
barrister of Victoria, has been already mentioned its the prospective
member for Lillooet. Mr. Eberts
would undoubtedly mako a vory
creditable representative for any
constituency, and perhaps the people of Lillooet may feci somewhat
flattered at the prospect of being
represented again by a legal luminary of the capital city; but a proper
sclf-rospoct and regard for their
best interests in tho lorn; run should
lend tho electors of any constituency
to prefer, if possiblo, to select their
representative from nmong tliem-
sel ves, Wo hope to see the people of
Lillooet district reoongnizing this
principlo in the present emergonoy
and determining to discourage once
antl for all tho practice, not com
mendable but in exceptional circumstances, of electing n non-resident
to represent u constituency in which
ho has no interests and about which
he can know little or nothing except in a general wny. Mainland
mc.i we should have for tho mainland, at least, wherever possible.
Wu boliove Mr. Eberts would make
a very creditable und useful member ot the local legislature, but we
should like to sec Lillooet have a
representative of its own.
The celebration committee nre
about, beginning their collection
tour, .ind they should meet with a
most liberal responso from every
citizen, It should bo remembered
in this connection that we have had
no celebration on any of bhe usual
occasions this year, but have purposely postponed nil snch demonstrations with tho object of having n
grand combination of extractions
:iih! sports during exhibition week.
While the exhibition itself is, or
should ba, the principal thing, the
celebration is arranged on a scale,
and judging from the excellent committee wliich has the arrangements
in hand- will be carried out in n
manner, far iu advance of anything
of the sort ever attempted in the
royal oity beforo, nnd nothing short
of chu most pretentious celebration
ever held in the province. AU
uepoasary stops are now being taken
by the directors of the agricultural
association and by the city council
to insure the perfect success of tho
exhibition, and tbe whole affair
promises to attract one of tho greatest gatherings that has yet been
seen in thn province, and not a few
from the outside will come to swell
tlm numbers. The immediate and
permanent benefits to the city, 63
peoially, of making the exhibition
and celebration such a success as
will ai;traot several thousands of
visitors, many of whom will remain
two or three days, uro too apparent
to require any enlarging on, and
every citizen, and especially our
business men, will undoubtedly seo
it lo their interests to contribute
liberally and promptly when tbo
opportunity offers, so that the celebration committeo may not be strait
(mod iu carrying out thoir enterprising and excel lent designs.
Atmricd hus nu article ou .'the
folly of oatentatioua funerals," vrhioti,
alth )U;<Ii wn may not agree with nil
the assertions and arguments of the
writer, contiiiii3 much food for
thoughtful consideration. Of the
"modern Christian funeral with its
accompaniment of mourning elk-
play," our cotemporary says tho
wlio'e idea animating such ceremonies is barbario in its conception.
Burkl, like birth, should bo ii family affair, it should be conduced
quie'ly, without public show or os-
tent\tion, and none but tlio blood
relatives and dearest friends of the
deceased should be present to witness tho interment. Continuing,
America says : If the doctrine of
futuro salvation and' life is true—-
nnd all Christians lirmly believo it
is—then death should not bo looked
upon as a horrible curse sent to rob
us of our beloved. The man who
fears death must, theoretically, he
afraid to have tho secrets of Iiis
life weighed iu the balance, ur un
certain in his faith in a future existence, ln either case his friends
should not mourn, as he ia evidently
unworthy of their public sympathy.
Do not let us bo misunderstood.
America does not moan thnt it
would haverelative'* appear unconcerned und callous at a relation's
death, but thnt tho pompous ceremonies attending death ore ill-nd-
visod and hypocritical. Ofton the
people who feel most deeply nro
those whoso, outward expressions
are least notico ible. Tho n-umber
of yards of mourning nud lho
corresponding hum ber of carri-
ages oniployrd nt n funeral represent vulgar pretension more than
mental suffering. If there is any
time when oqunlity should bo manifest, it is in death. At the gravo tho
poor man and the rich man are laid
in tho bosom of the common mother
earth, Thoy have both passed beyond the need of vulsptr display.
The degree of grief felt by tbo poor
man's friends mny be as great as
that fult by those of tho rich man,
Tho wifo of Lazarus cannot afford
to purchase mourning attire, while
tho wife of Dives feels compelled to
attire herself and hor servants in
costly garments which convoy to the
world tho fact that she has met
with nn irreparable loss, when the
chances aro that sho secretly flatters
herself that tho widow's woods are
most becoming. Tiio notorious Mrs.
Maybrick appeared in crape before
the eyes of tho jury which convicted
hor of poisoning her husband. All
this is vulgar ostentation, yot society doorees that its votaries must bo-
deck themselves in black and retire
from tho world upon a relation's
death without lu any measure regarding inward grief felt upon such nn
occasion. It were hotter that poople who severely foel the loss of a
dear friend or relative should not be
compelled to retire from tho world,
but .should mix in society as much
as possible in order that distracting
scenes mny help relieve tho troubled
mind. As a matter of fact, tho
idea of mourning is of savago origin
and unworthy of a refined civilization. The vulgar throngs who rush
to modern funerals to view tho
corpso and satisfy themselves that
it is receiving a show of grief np-
proprinto to its rank, nro unfeeling
in their expressions of nn unfelt
woe, compared with savage hordes,
who fast, daub themselves with
paint, sit in ashes, shave their
heads, wring their hands, nnd beat
their breasts—an expression of barbaric emotion. Mahomet forbade
wailing in public, but his followers
failed to observe his bidding.
Would that some modern prophet
might successfully remove the hypocrisy unci abuse of the modern
funeral nnd its attendant public
mourning.

"Any one who hus evor boen on the cattlo trail In Texas or Now Mexico has seen
many illustrations of tlio profound fear aud
roligioufl'-falth of the Mexican cowboys,"
Hnii I 0. P, Horton, proprietor of the Loupas
caulo ranch In New Mexico, to a New York
Sim roportor. "The laceration of thoir
flesh with thorny cactus in timo of danger
or trouble, as a penance for their sins, is a
common act among thom, and many is the
herd of cattlo that haa suffered enormous
loss through Mexicans in chargo of thein attaching moro Importance to their barbarous
iitononient for past wickedness than they
did to tho cattle in their custody. I onco
known hord of 8,500 cattlo to bo otnmpedod
iu a thunder-storm because tho Mexicans
who wero trailing thom woro afraid of
thundor and lightning, and threw tlicm-
solves from tholr horsos, stripped thom*
Helve-', und lashed their naked bodies with
oaotus aa n propitiation of tbo elements,
v/hiki tho herd rushed wildly away in all
directions and hundreds wore lost.
''Hia not nn uncommon thing for Moxionn
cowboys to stop ou tho trail to punish thorn-
selves for tliolr sins. Froquontly tholr
cries whilo giving themsolvos tho thorny
flagellation cause a disastrous stampedo of
the uuttlo thoy have boen entrusted with.
I havo many a time soon thoso Mexicans
walk barefooted for rods ovor patches of
cactus spikes, whilo a companion followed
and lushed their naked backs with the
stiuio thorny plant-tho lormidablo cano
oaotus*. Once I wna in a town In Northorn
Mexico nud witnessed an astonishing exhibition.
"I had a friend down thero who was looking ul'tor tho interests of a mining company, and as I had beon asked to go into tho
concern"-I went down to look the ground
over. I arrived in tho placo on Friday—just
a year ago last Good Friday.
'"You're just in timo,' exclaimed my
friciirt whon wo met. 'They're going to givo
this community its unnunl Bin-cleaning by
lushing a greaser till you can't toll him
from u side of dressed beef, and we'll go
see'em do it.1
"Ho thon explained to me that on overy
Good Friday at least one Mexican in the
parish had to submit to publio flagellation
with cano cactus, us a penunco not only
for hia sins for tho year past, but for thoso
of tlio community iu general. I accompanied
my friend to seo how an official flagellation
was conducted. ., -
"Wo wont first to the ohurch, which was
an ancient one. Inthe altar stood a young
Mexican stripped to tho waist. Tho priest
waa saying prayers ovor him, and all the
peoplo wore knoeiiug and tolling their
beads.
'"That's a chap they call Bad Lopez,-
whispered my friend. 'He has ovidontly
beaten the record for wickedness this year,
und will get the tickler.'
"Tlio ceremonies at the churoh wera soon
ovor. Then Bad Lopez took up a heavy
cross that lay near tho altar, throw it across
his shoulder, and followed tho priest out of
tho churoh. Tho cross was made of timber
eight inches square. Ib was not loss than
eight feet long, with cross arms in proportion. Lopez bent under its weight. The
peoplo in tho church followed Lopez, The
procession marched nearly half a milo, ond
thoMoxicau couldn't ha vocarricd that heavy
eroEB another rod. But the destination had
boot: cached. Across had boen raised on
tho apot, and arouud this Lopez walked
oncotiitdlaidhlaeross onthoground. Tho
crowd surrounded tho standing cross. Two
stout Mexicans stepped forward. Each had
in his hand n stalk of cane oaotus. A stalk
of cano cactus is about four foot long. A
mnn can just nicely reach around its butt
aud '*■:'. a ilrra hold of it. Tho stalk tapers to a
point, nnd has numerous bronchos, four or
live inches long. Btnlk and branches are
covered with thousands of noodle-like
thorns. Thoso nro nn inch long and ns
poisonous as a boostingor. Every wound
made by ono of these spikes la hound to
swell and foster and itch worso than nettles.
"It was with ono of "thoso encouraging
wenponB thnt each of Jjopez'sse(jurgcrB was
iirnv.il. Thoy were apparently anxious* to
purify that parish without dolny, for they
did uot hesitate a moment when thoy
stepped from tho crowd, but started right
in tn threshing tho youug Mexican's bare
back U3 if thoy wero simply ratUIng out a
floor of grain. Around and around that
cross Lope-* marched, his flagellators at his
heels, and wielding thoir frightful woapons
Willi vigor and regularity, whilo tho spectators chanted a weird and discordant
'hymn. AttlioQrstblowof the oaotus tho
,\i .-si-niii*:- back was lacerated as if it had
been cut by luucos, nud tho blood ran down
in streams. A visible tremor shook his
frame, and ho drew himself down convulsively midcr tho pain of tho first blow, but
hot n sound escaped his lips. Tho poison
spikes woropounded into his flesh as long
us ii'i-i'o were any branches to tho cactus
Btallr. Ry tho timo the terrible Bcourgors
were worn out thoro was not a spot of
wholo skin or untorn flesh from tho Mexican'.? shoulders to his waist. Scores of the
thorns had broken oft In tho flosh, and protruded from tho lacerated mass liko porcupine quills.
"As soon us tho merciless beating was
ovor. Lopez was marched back again to tho
i-hiu-ch. At the church door u smooth bar
of wood was passed ovor Ida mangled back
fi ^m the shoulders down, to remove such
of the spikes nud adhering sections of tho
end us as would como off with the Bcrnplng.
Those, with other bits of cuctus that tho
spectators hud picked up around the cross,
wero thrown on tho ground in front of tho
ohuroh door, and over these Lopez walked
In his baro feet, to and fro soveral times,
Then tho sacrlflco was over. Tho Mexican
had utoucd for u wholo parish's slua and his
frionds took him home. 1 don't know
whether ho evor got well or not, but I was
told that it wna a common thing for tho victims of thsso iiugoll-illuns to bo six montha
rccovoring from the oil'ects of tho punishment and that oneo In uwliilo ono died."

"Mr. J. H. Loroy, of the Northern Pacific
railway of lho United State!, of America;
Mr. John Sidney and two ladies, Mm Webster antl Miss Gootch, and myself started to
explore tlio Fountain Cave. Armed with
Uw lamps and provisions enough for two
meals, we started. Wo got through the

found on oach sido of the main passage
numerous sideways and alleys apparently
hewn out of the 3olid rock.
"All around thoro wore evidences of lite
caves being inhabited by swarms of bats
which constantly kept flying in our faces.
Pursuing our way for a-considerable time,
wo camo to a spot whoro tho roof of the

produced a shivery souse of abhorrence.
We began to wish ourselves well outof tho

was nothing for it but to go on,
"We walked un this passage n distance, I
should judge, of three hundred yardu, when

Still, thero was no ray of light; nothing

fruit wus grown in Cnpt. Myors or*

of what tlio rest of tho yield is like.
Tho plums weighed a triflo under 3 oz.
each, aud six cf them turned tho scale

point of flavor they nro as noar perfection as could'.'bo wished, and for table
neu n moro dtfltcious fruit could not be

plums togothor they uro remarkable
for both' aiv.6, flavor and beautiful appearance, and Capt. Myers ahould certainly send a sample of thom to lho

Many of tho Indians who have boon
employed in the canneries during the
past two months aro leaving for their
homes to harvest thoir crops and pre*
pare for winter. Evory day many
canoes, loaded to tho water's edge with
ichlas of all kinds, leavo for tho up-
river reservations, or for tlio Indian
villages up tho coast. Tins refers
principally to tho Indians who do a
little farming. Those who do uot
tako kindly to tho tilling of the soil
arc departing tor Washington Territory and Oregon tu tako part in tho
hop harvest, and unusually good inducements aro holdout to thom by tho
hop growers this year. Tlie Christian
Indians, as usual, aro accompanied by
n priest who will remain with them
and watch ovor their spiritual welfare
(ill they nro safe home again. This is
considered very nocossary by tho
church, as many of tlio Indiana congregating uu tho hop fields are heathens,
and unrestricted intercourse with these
is certain to boar evil fruits. As far
its possible tho sects are kept separate-
but it requires unremitting watchfulness on the part of tho clergyman to
maintain tho strict order of non-intor-
cuurso.

from lho molting snow washing away
whole ditches and sluico-ways. Tho
dig-pugs on Forty Milo creek aro good,
though the highest pay obtained by
any man this season wns so fur 82000.
Considerable excitement prevailed concerning Lonnh. Everywhere rich dig

The Tacoma firemen's luurnameut-
as we have noticed before, talsos place
in that city on the 10th, 17th, 18th
and lOLh of September. No loss a
sum than $4,200 is to bo given in
prizes to the various winners in tho
races. The prises are to bo distributed as follows : Threo purses to bo
mado up from the total prize money
for oach race, to be given tu iho companies making the best lirst, s.-eond or
third records: Wettest, §1,-100; dry
test, 8700; speed race §500; association
championship race, $800; hook and
ladder raco, §800. Tho Northwestern
Firemen's Association will meet on
the 10th of September for the election
of officers and tho selection of judges
and referees for the coming tourney.
An opportunity will thus bo given to
British Columbia's fire fighters to test
thoir agility and settle tho mattor as to
which is the superior team. The prizes
are such liberal ones that keen competition will bo witnessed, nr, tbe very
best (cams En the country will lm represented. Considering t ho comparative nearness of Tacoma to this city,
tho excellence of the competition and
tho splondid prizes, it will bo altogether discreditable and short sighted
in our citizens, especially the businesa
men and property owners, if thoy fail
to contributo a sufficient mini to enable
thu Hyacks racing toam to attend thu
tournament at Tacoma. A good volunteer lire company is indispensable to a
city the size of Westminster; but to
maintain such an organization in n
satisfactorily efficient stato requires no
littlo solf-sacrilico in tho items of timo,
labor, nud oxponso on thu part of ita
members, and in the case of tires tho
work is of tho hardest and moat disagreeable description, and all these
services are, of course, given gratis.
The least that is due a volunteer tiro
company is that they should bo furnished tlie means for an occasional
jaunt of this description, whoro they
might toat their oSicieney in the handling of firemen's appliances by keenly
contested trials or competitions with
their brethren of othor cities, and thus
stimulate their ardor in attaining that
degree of cxpertneas that shall mako
them most useful in un emergency.

Tho rogular quarterly mooting of
tlio bonrd of trado was held in tho
board room last uight, tho president,
Mr, John Hendry, in the chair. A
numbor of communications were read
aud disposed of.
Tho secretary was instructed to reply to a communication from the department of marine asking tho depart*
ment to withdraw the Into river chart
on account of inaccuracies aud issue a
new chart ns speedily as possible.
Tho secretary wns also instructed to
ask the marine department to have
two bouoons erected so ns to show the
channel between Lulu Island uud tho
B. 0. cannery, nud to have tho buoy
replaced nn the spit at Woodward's
slough.
Messi-d, Scoullar and Trapp were
appointed to wait on Mr. F. C. Gamble, 0. E , and uscortaln if he can givo
Cnpt. Grant authority to replace buoys
when displaced without having to com*
niuiiicate with other oflicials. If not,
tho secretary wns instructed to urge
upon the department of marino the
necessity of having tho authority to
replace buoys lodged -in tho captain of
tho snagboat so that prompt action
may be taken when required without
having to refer thu matter to any person out of reach, ne the time consumed in replacing buoys under tho
present arrnngemimt causes danger tn
vessels and militates against the shipping interests of tho river.
Tho secretary was instructed to inquire from tho P. O. inspector, what
has becomo of tho promised Btreet letter boxes.
In reply to a communication from
the inspector of fisheries, asking tho
board's opinion with respect to the advisability of closing tho Fraser river
hut cliery, a resolution was unanimously
passed expressing the opinion that tho
present hatchery Bhould not only be
continued, but should be enlarged and
another constructed at Harrison Lake,
The board considered that the unusually large run of salmon Inst year
and this yoar afforded abundant proof
of Lhe efficiency of the hatchery, nnd
that to closo it would be vory much
mistaken economy on tho part of tho
Government.
A committeo was appointed to receive Hon. E. Dewdney on his arrival
from Uio oust, and arrange a meeting
with a view tb tho discussion of boiuo
questions affecting the interests of this
city and district.
Tho seorotary wna instructed to
tiBcoitniu whether thu draw in Harrison river bridge had boon repaired bo
as to admit tho free passage of steamers,
and, if not, to cdmmunicate with Mr,
Abbott again on tho subject.
Messrs. A. J. McColl, G. W. Grunt,

Tho following completo returns of
iho salmon pack on tho Fraser river
up to date, and the puck canned and
salted from tho northern waters, has
kindly beon furnished The Columbian
by Mr. Thos. Mowat, inspector of
fisheries. The northern pack is complete for tho season, and shows a do*
crease of nbout 10,000 cases from last
year. The Fraser river pack last year
was 70,000 oases, so that the increase
for 1889 is t-'jinething enormous. As
tho cohoe run Btill remains to be
packed it is hard to estimate what tho
grand total for tho season will bo, but
if thu run is anything liko what is expected ut lenst 50,000 enses will be
added to tho prosont figures. The
salmon run on the Fraser river tins
season haa been phenomenal, and the
liko of it has novor been seen in the
memory of the oldest fisherman. Tho
pack as given below would have boon
considerably larger but for the fact
that all tho canneries ran out of material, and wero forced to abut down
simply on that account. Ewen & Co.,
