NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Ifricnd—"Do you livo happy
with your husband?" Muscular
female—"OE course I do. I'd liko
to see him try not to live happy
with ine."
.French engineers are utilizing the
poppy tu strengthen railroad embankments, The roots of tho plants
form a network that cannot be
exterminated without great dilli-
culty, and uro therefore admirable
for the purposo named.
Tlio Edmonton Bulletin says:
The amount of boar skins traded in
this district during tho past winter
is enormous, und tho selling price
much higher than usual, us high as
$22 nil. tiroimd being paid for somo
lots. Bears will surely be scarce
next} ear.
The assessment rate ut Westminster has been fixed at ono cent
on the §, with a reduction of 20 per
cent, for prompt payment, This is
a very low rato, and shows that
Westminster is in a healthy condition h'nancially. Last year the
rato was one and one-third per cent.

An Italian engineer has experimented with sugar as a means of
preventing tho incrustation of
boilers, with satisfactory results. A
boiler which used to be incrusted in
six weeks had two kilogrammes of
sugar introduced every week for
four months, and then a film of
incrustation was found which could
be easily washed ofl'.
A English court has been called
upon to decide how long nn impulse
can last. A well-known lady was
charged with shooting game without
;i license Sho pleaded on defence
that she acted under impulse, having been asked to tako a gun by
one of the gentlemen at a shooting
party; but her impulse continued
for two hours, So she was fined
£2.	
Electricity is now employed in
India to prevent snakes from entering dwellings. Before all doors and
around tho houso two wires are
laid, insolated from each other and
connected with an induction apparatus. When the snako attempts to
enter tbo house or go under it, he
completes the circuit as he crawls
over the wires; and, if tho shock he
gets docs not kill him, it is likely to
effectually frighten him away from
tho premises.
Mr. Gladstone's estimate of Dante,
expressed after a paper road by the
Bishop of Eipon at the Duke of
Westminster's house, contained this;
"I wish lo bear testimony with tho
bishop, as far as language can, to
the degree of magnitude and tho importance of his works, which oan
hardly bo possible to exaggerate
upon. Dante had a pluce absolutely alone in tho whole compass of
what is called literature, and I do
not think that there is any writer
who can competo with Dan to in
what I call educated power. In
my opinion, the study of Dante is a
vory serious matter, entailing a serious responibility. Every thinking
person who gives himself to that
study cannot, during the study, but
feel profoundly its effects, for many
aro the lessons which the poems of
Dante convey to humanity."
One of our English cotemporaries
has the following item of interest
respecting a projected postal tubo
under tho English Channel, to be
operated presumably by the pneumatic method of propulsion, though
on this point "deponent saith not,"
viz.: "Whatever objection may be
urged against the construction of a
channel tunnel, it is not easy to discover grounds for opposing tho development of a recently revived
schemo. It is proposed (not for tho
first time, however) to lay down a
postal tubo between Dover and
Calais. The idea is to suspend two
tubes of about a yard each in diameter by moans of steel cables across
the channel, forty yards above the
level of tho sea, Tho steel cables
will be fixed to pillars ut distances
of about 800 yards, and in each tubo
a little railway will run with cars
capable of carrying -150 pounds in
weight. No parcel of greater
weight than this will be taken, and
tho cost is estimated nt the modest
figuro of-£1,000,000."
It is said that every man is interesting to evory woman, be.auso
there is no knowing whether or not
in the changes and chances of this
mortal life he may not become a
suitor for her hand. Ko amount of
decrepitude or youthfulness seems
to stand in tho way of matrimonial
alliances, and there is a faint percentage of hope, or at any rate interest*
ing conjecture, in regard to every
man a, woman meets. A cotemporary writer quotes tho percentages
of possibility in detail. It appears
that between 20 and 26 years, 62
por cent, of women at large marry;
between 30 and 35, only 15 out of
overy 100; and between 40 and 46,
only 2h per cent. An aged philan-
thorpist in England is anxious to
givo 016,000 toward a plan for improving tho expectation of marriage
on tho put of the loss hopefully
placed of thoso who pine in single
wretchedness. He proposes a well
organized and respectably conducted
association to holp in getting peoplo
married. Tho Pall Mall Budget is
responsible for the publication of
his scheme in detail.

NewYoitK. May 10. -Justice Barret, of the Supremo court, to-day gave
judgment dissolving the Electric Sugar
Roflning Co., Alexander Cameron,
representing the corporation, consenting thereto. R. Burnham Moffat was
appointed receiver and directed to
furnish bonds in $10,000.
THE RAILWAY COMMISSION.
New York, May 10.—The first
witness called this morning by tho
senato committee, and Canadian Railways was President Chas. S. Smith, of
the chamber of commerce. He alluded to railroad enterprises in India
aud the Black Sea ports, and feared
that under the present conditions it
would not bo long boforo America lost
her export trade. He even advocated
the carrying of occasional shipments
by railroads at less than cost of carrying if necessary, Ho thought there
was small hopo of snccvsful competition with tho English steamship lines
unless American linca recoivo a sub*
sidy.
J. H. Herrick, chairman of the inter-state commerce commission,differed
from the laat witness. Ho thought
the interstate law a good ono, but the
penalties are not severe enough. There
was a tendency to discriminate against
the seaboard ports in favor of foreign
ports, We should not rostrict Canadian roads; we need thom as a regulator, but they should be under tho same
control as ours.

All records fail to show on any previous

law alike to all such passengers without

duo prejudice and disadvantage from

foregoing reBpects as ogahiBt the po*

ever changing nature of tho  channel.
It ia understood that the government intends putting off indefinitely
the passage of an order in council declaring the Weldon Extradition Act in
force owing to the doubt regarding a
certain clause in the act, which it ts
claimed by legal authorities could be
bo construed as to render the measure
retroactive. An official of prominence
in the department of justice, speaking
in reference to a question as to whether the Weldon Extradition Act is
retroactive, said that tho matter wob
one purely for the courts to decide.
Generally speaking, Canadian acts are
retroactive, but it may be pot-Bible to
quote precedents showing that previous
legislation in Canada on extradition
was retroactive. In such an event the
matter would lie with the judgo to decide whether according to his opinion
the act is retroactive. It is understood that au order in counoil bringing
the act into force will bs passed in
August.	
Late Despatches.
THE BLOOD MONEY.
Montreal, May 6.—Judge Dugas
stated on Saturday that the question
of the reward for the capture of Morrison was to be discussed yesterday. Thu
government have no intention of withholding or diminishing the reward owing to the fact that thoy have already
paid over $3,000 for tho expedition,
etc. The only difficulty seems to bo
how to distribute it, whether between
McMahon and Leroyer or between all
participants iu the expedition.
DUMONT AT BATOf.-HE.
Ottawa, May 5.—The mounted polico department hus received a detailed
report from one of its oHicers of the
half-breed meeting recently held at
Batocho on the call of Gabriel Dumont.
About ono hundred Metia were present. The report says the tone of Du*
mont's address was anything but hostile to the government. After recounting to his audience some of hia experiences and ideas of eastern Canada,
lie touched on the late rebellion, but
iu a mild manner. His strongest expression was that although in their ignorance they had rebelled and taken
up arms, and were also aware that
they could not hope successfully to
contend against the government, yot
they had proven that thoy wore not
afraid to defend their families end
homes. He urged his hearers to form
a committee to draw up n petition to
tho government praying for such of
their rights as they deemed proper.
The results of tho meeting have been
favorably commented on in the Princo
Albert district, aa it was expected that
a vigorous attack would bo made on
thu adminiatration.
a strange sale.
Montreal, May 8.—A strange salo
touk plncu thia morning iu tho office cf
the hiji sheriff uf the district. It
will be remembered that some
mouths ago after Mr. J. J. Cur-
ran, Q.C., had with great ability defended Jack Kohoe, charged
with tho murder of Thomas Donnelly,
and although tho prisoner wns convicted and sentenced to be hanged his
elusive tic counsel secceeded in staying
tho judgment of tho court and Jack
was sent to Kingston, and finally
brought back to St, Vincent do Paul to
sorve out a life sentence. Tho murderers father refused to pay the lawyers who had saved the life of his only
snn, and consequently au action wna
taken. A brick houao and some other
property belonging to tho dofeudant
Kehoe therefore fell under the ham
mer nt thu placo indicated above for
$3,525. Strange to relate, tho property was purchased by Margaret Donnelly, widow of tho poor man wlumi
Jack Kehoe had bo cruelly murdered.
Messrs. Curran and Gremer nre entitled to $700 for Jack's defense. Half
of the total Bum goes to the, old man
and the remaining 81,003 or thereabouts will go to tho widow, as per
agreement with the government, Jack's
sharo in the proporty having been forfeited to tho crown through his oivil
death.
TRADE AND   EMIGRATION.
LondoK, May 8.—Tho board of trade
returns show that British exports to
the Dominion inoroased 87.00 during
April and £18,335 during tho four
months of 1889, Tho imports from
Canada decreased to £70,037 during
April, but increased to £68,296 during
the four montha cf this yoar. Thero
aro large decreases in (lour and fish
and increases in cheese and sawn

CORRESPONDENCE.
A Flaberatw Spraki.
Editor Columbian,—In your issue of
the 8th inst,, I noticed on article regarding tho new fishing regulations upon the
Fraser rivor. It it true, as you say,
that thero is considerable excitement
among the fishermen, and when the
means of making an honest living ia
taken away from a groat numbor of men
thero is good excuse for excitement, and
perhaps more. The fishermen as a body
aro deprived by tho now regulations from
obtaining licenses, and men who have
fished on tho Fraser river ranging from 5
to 19 years and havo in. that time sue*
cccdcd in buying boats and nets of tholr
own, arc thrown over. Tho canneries
havo gobbled up all the licenses except
100. Of theso, the Indians get 37, says
tho writer. Tho Indians are allowed to
fish for thoir own uso without license all
the year round. It Is known that thore
wore not moro than 10 Indians at moat
lieensed last year. Tho freezers, and
othors having It or 4 licenses apiece,, get
the balance. Tho fact is that cannery-
men havo obtained control of every
license issued. Who aro entitled to
license if not tho men who do tho fishing? Tho cannerymen don't fish. The
now fishing regulations are monstrous,
and will do tho city of New Westminster
moro injury than many peoplo dream of.
They were passed to benefit Victoria at
tho expenso of New Weatmlnster, and
any one who knows anything abont the
Fraser river is aware that the talk about
liyliin-; it out fs nonsense. Due notice
should hnve boon given tho fishermen
before allowing them to go to the expense
of buying boats and nota of their own
preparatory for this year's fishing.
Yours respectfully,
Westminster, May 10th.
Fisherman.

William Jackson, sentenced to two
years in tho penitentiary for larceny,
was yesterday taken to New Weitminster jail in care of Constable Stewart. The prisoner was quite -jheerful
and seemed anxious to get to his destination. Probably finding hia crocodile tears had uo effect on an un*
sympathetic publio he decided to
brazen it out. Sympathy is wasted on
gentry like thia and yet there are num-
bcrlcsB instances of persona, principally women, making small heroes out of
criminals who make a pretence of
penitence in the dook. Toars are

gtttlg fritish Columbian
FrMnj- Uveulnte, May IO, 1889.
The Victoria Times has  got   the
"big head," and  got   it   bad.    We
almost knew that it would end in
that   No journal enn go on in  tho
way  the   Times  has   been   going
lately, and not come to some bad
end.   Tho Times has been fooling of
late with such double-back-uctioncd
brain-tanglers ns "erotic literature,"
"idealism    va.    realism,"   "Henry
Gcorgism," "theosophy, or esoteric
Buddhism," and   even "cigarettes"
and "lager beer."   And on the top
of  all  this it essays the other day
the role of Wiggins, in some observations  on  the Westminster  and
Seattlo   Railway.    "Senator  Can-
field's railway, as it is called, seems
to  be a foregone conclusion," says
Times,   So  far our cotemporary is
all  right, only it might have been
persuaded of that fact long ngo. Tlio
Times continues: "A syndicate of
eastern  capitalists   have interested
themselves in the project, and if tho
work of construction is pushed, as
there is every reasou to think it will
be,  another year will witness the
connection  of   New Westminster
with Seattle."  So long as the Times
sticks to patent facts it gets along
nicely, but directly it breaks loose
into a mad whirl of conjecture, and
shapes its imaginings after its own
desires, all becomes llighty, impracticable, and incoherent    "By this
arrangement, which brings tho C.P
and  tho  N. P, together," says the
Times, '-the  rational conclusion to
draw is that there will be a grand
terminal city opposite the Straits of
Fuca, and that iho four cities, Tacoma,   Seattle,   New  Westminster
and Vancouver, now terminal points,
will be relegated to way stations."
This is what tho Times would like
to see, of course.   As it says later
on, "Victoria, however, can contemplate  these .changes with  perfect
equanimity.    What happens on tho
mainland, bordering tlie Sound, is of
no particular consequence to her."
Referring to its "big guess" above,
the Times says: "Our reasons for so
thinking are that tho nearest common  point  on.tho Sound for seagoing craft necessarily implies that
there will  bo the terminal city of
the  transcontinental railway lines.
*    *    *    Vancouver,   the   terminal   point    of   the   0. P. R.,
there is on opposite the straits   of
Funo, touch at Victorin.   The terminal point opposite the straits of
Fuca, however, and a detour is required to reach Victoria.   This kind
of talk is  not pleasant," iSrc.   We
agree with our cotemporary that it
is a little too incoherent to be pleasant reading, and   the   last   clause
would stand re-writing.  Tho Timcst
we are glad to notice, has a lucid interval towards the conclusion, winding up as follows: "But let us nob
anticipate too much.   We should
very much dislike to fall within the
category of  false prophets,   It is
sufficient to know that this Oanfield
railway  portends   radical changes,
and that we must patiently await
results."   The   Times  might have
expressed itself in fewer words, with
much greater clearness.   Its labored
article simply amounts to this: "The
Oanfield railway is going to be built,
after all" (certainly very stale news),
"and when it is completed—something is going to happen 1" You bet
it is; and if tho befuddled  Times
man will take _. spin up to the hub,
about two years from now, ovor tho
Victoria, Saanich and Westminster
Railway, we .pledge ourselves to his
friends thut he won't get lost.   We
shall   also be happy to drive him
mound tho premier city of Urilish
Oolumbia, and show him what fnis
happened.
In the comparative scarcity of, and
the mad rush for, land in tho United
States, "Poor Lr>" will soon be utterly crowded to the wall. The relatively small Indian Territory which
the. "pale faces" years ago set apart
as a national reserve for the original
lords of the soil is now earnestly coveted by hungry boomers and land
seekers. With the opening of Oklahoma to settlement (which by the
way has not turned out to bo suoh a
paradise as it was at first represented)
tho wedge hns beon entered that will
very soon rend the rod man's nlloted
heritage assunder and distribute it
among his constitutional and remorseless exterminators. Already
the "Oherokoo strip," as the Indian
land adjacent to Oklahoma is known,
ia rapidly being occupied along its
borders by squatters who -were un-
succesful in securing claims in tha
territory just thrown open. The
presssuro for the opening of the
Cherokee strip, for the purchase of
which from tbe Indiana negotiations
are on foot, will speedily becomo
intense. The spirit of tho squatters
ia thus described in the St. Louis
Globe-Democrat: "They have abandoned their old homes with the fixed
resolution to make new ones, and
they will not return simply becauso
they hnve failed in thia one peculiar
attempt. It ia easy for them to
nnvioe themselves that by tbe aot
jf removal thoy havo become on-
titled to homesteads— if not in Oklahoma, then in somo other place
where lands oan be open to settlement by similar means. Strictly
speaking, the government is not to
blamo for their bad luck; but the
fact remains that they went there
upon its invitation, and that it cannot afford to disregard the condition
in which they have thereby boen
placed. The argument of moral obligation holds, whatever may be said
of the legal feature of the case.
Thero is still an abundance of unoccupied land in the Indian Territory
which can bo obtained for tho use
of home-seekers just as the Oklahoma tract was obtained • and these
peoplo will insist with a decided
show of reason und justico that such
uotioh shall be taken." As showing
still further tho trend of public sentiment in the States on expropriating theso Indian lands for settlements—n step which is plainly inevitable — the following remarks
from tho Graphic are of interest,
revealing also, as they do, something
of the dospcrateness of tho race and
land problems in the United States:
"The ordinary mind fails to comprehend why tho United Statos army
should be employed to keep white
settlers from getting lCO-itcro homes
and to protect Indians in retaining
a thousand ones apiece. Tbe policy
is certain to bo unpopular, whatever
its right in sentiment and equity.
It is therefore important that the
negotiations for theso lands should
bo rapidly pressed to a conclusion.
But thero is a more important consideration involved in this situation,
which should be immediately placed
before the public and become the
subject of legislation. This is, tho
rapidly narrowing the area of public
lauds. Immigration und tho natural growth of population have developed this country more rapidly
than any nation in the world's history was ever developed. The public lands are being occupied by settlers at a rate that will take up the
last acre within a quarter of a century, What aro we going to do
then? This is the question of the
hour, and in restricted immigration,
extension of national boundaries, or
the gradual removal of the black
race to Hayti or San Domingo—pos
sibly in all three directions—the
answer will be found."

must be stopped.    Were it an
senic instead of an alcohol, no one
would dispute this.   So long as the
drinking of intoxicants is indulged
in, bo long will the bodily, mental,
and moral   mischief   be intensified
aud made permanent.   Abstinence
must be absolute, and on no plea of
fashion, of  physic, or of  religion
ought  the  smallest quantity of an
intoxicant be put to tiio lips of the
alcoholic slave.   Alcohol is a material chemical narcotic poison, and a
mero sip has, even  in  tho  most
solemn circumstances, been known
to  relight in the fiercest intensity
the  drink  crave which for a long
period of  ) ears had been dormant
and unfelt.   The second condition
of cure is to ascertain the predisposing and exciting causes of inebriety,
and  to  endeavor   to remove these
causes, which  may lio in1 some re-
mole  or  deep-seated physical ailment.   The third condition of cure
is to restore the physical and mental
tone.   This can be dono by appropriate medical  treatment, by fresh
air and exercise, by nourishing and
digestible food given to reconstruct
healthy bodily tissue nnd brain cell,
aided   by intellectual, educational,
und religious iniluenccs.   New here
can these conditions of cure be so
eilectually carried out as in an asylum whero the ■ unfortunate victim
of  drink  is placed in quarantine,
treated with suitable remedies until
the alcohol is removed from his system, then surrounded by Christian
and elevating influences, fed with a
nourishing  and   suitable diet, and
supplied with skillful medical treatment   His brain and nervous system will then be gradually restored
to its normal condition, und, after a
period of from six to twelve months
in most cases, he will bo ao far recovered   as   to be able to return to
his usual avocation and successfully
resist his craving for drink.   The
fourth condition of turo is employment.    Idleness is -the foster-mother
of drunkenness,  industry the bulwark of temper ■-.•■co.   Let the mind
of  the  penitent inebriate be kept
occupied l*.y regular work, and the
task of reformation will bo shorn of
half itr- difficulty.

i.aa Pathetlo Story of His Mother's TombBtone.
r.t waa no wonder the men stopped their
•rk aud stared. It was no wonder that
e or two of them laughed for a moment. It
■ 'feed so strange and somehow out of
hco. None of us had ever seen or heard
ytlilngllke it beforo.
(it was in the yard of the largest marble
iirlis in the cityof Chicago. Ever so many
j.o monuments, delicately carved and An-
ied, Btood thoro completo to show how
nil work could be dono; and thon thero
13 work In all stages of finish, some pieces
marble just begun to be chiseled; little
.d great, Biinplo and elegant. Then thero
pro broken pieces of marble lying there
[iparently useless, and somo otherwise,
11 broken in process of chiseling.
\Tot one of all these escaped the quick eye
tho little Btreet vagrant (as any of us
■uid have called him) who had entered
3 yard a few moraerats boforo with such a
klness nir, and walked from ono to the
aer and scanned thom closely. Wo had
.A littlo attention to him, for wo thought
't for want of something worso to do,
*>bnbly, ho had just wandered in. It was
j- first question that startled us. The
-ilea died away from tho faces of all as
t listened to him and watched him. Ho
ippcd nearer to tho ono that ho took to be
ss among us, and said:
I say, mister, how much does this cost?"
pointed to a plain marble slab that
iked simple enough in the midst of so
my finer onos. I can't tell you how his
nation sounded, for you can't hear his
■co. It had in it something which brought
,'u-s instead of smiles.
! 'ho boss named tho price, a disappointed
<fe crept ovor tho faco of tho ragged little
■■■.vsboy, and with a forced smile that was
;'>der tlian tears ho lookod up with:
I Why, that'a moro than I thought; I ain't
lotopay that."
'Io wont on through the smaller ones In-
iringthe price of each, and each time
king his disappointment that all wero too
■Uy for his small moans. Finally he
ippcd in front of a broken shaft of mar-
:-, onoof the remains of an accident in
a yard the day before. Ho took off his
,pgcd hat, and gazing at tho broken stone
'• a few moments ho stammered out,
■ough toars:
< I say, mister, that looks liko hor somo
fo.  How much may I havo it fori"
uo was askod if ho would wont it lettered,
l when it wa3 explained to him what that
Bant, and that it would cost something to
vo it dono, ho said:
vNo; I can't afford that, but p'raps I can
Inogo that myself," and again that sad,
J;cod smile.
Yo see," ho went on, "mothor and!
j-vo all thero were left of us, leastwoya aa
• as wo know, for wo haven't hoard from
hor for over bo long. Wo kept houso
other, I earned what I could, and
■thoi* she worked ns long as sho was
-.o. Showas't vory old, but sho was al-
ys crying; only when sho cheered up to
ko her littlo boh happy—that's what sho
led me; but she couldn't cheer up for
ig. Bho grow sicker and sicker, and—
11—I did all I could for hor; hut—sho died
t weok"— Tho little follow was sob*
,.g now aa ho leaned on tho broken shaft
'it rominded him of hia mother,
'tis tears woro not tho only ones, I can
II you. Wo nodded to the boss, and he
ued a price so small that the manly little
low looked up with amazement that at
>■ ho had found something within his
'ans. He quickly closed tho bargain and
-ntcd out the nlckles and pennies for his
eo, Ho walked about for a few mo*
■nta among tho stones spelling out, as
it ho could, the Inscriptions, asked sev-
, 1 questions about how it was dono, and
■-v long it took; thon hastily went out like
nan ofbuBlness, saying:
p I'll bo after It to-morrow."
io camo toward the middle of the day
cu the morning papers were all sold. Ho
S. I a littlo four-whcoled cart which ho
Ued us to load tho stone in; and nevor a
rchaser had loft that yard with a sweeter,
Mer satisfaction than our Uttle hero. Uo
m tho streets toward the cemetery—wo
W* for wo watched bim—and a moro
.•iousund Interested set of men you nover
1 v than woro our workmen to know what
d becomo of our littlo news-man as we
aw to calling him; for ho didn't seem like
joy to ub.
Wo half expected bo would turn up some
y to loam more about tho lettering or
toothing, but he nevor camo, and our
rloslty, wo thought, was likely novor to bo
(atlflod.
[{Quo Monday morning as we gathered at
' a work, ono of tbo men, who, wo had no*
:cd, seemed particularly sober startled ub
ilth!
"I say, boys, wouldn't you like to know
hat becamo of our littlo news-man!"
."Yos, yes; what do you know of himl'
mo from several at once; and work was
rgottcn for a time as wo listened to the
'ory of our littlo hero to tho end,
"Well," said tho workman, "I will own I
vo thought of tho little follow overy day
ncohowos hero; and somohow couldn't
it rid of the thought tbat I should like to
.owwhnt had becomo of him. How to find
tt I couldn't tell, for not ono of us had
ked whoro ho lived or his name or know
>y one who could toll us.  Yesterday 1
ought of a plan; and so in tho afternoon I
for the cemetery 1 thought it likely
.led his stono to. I was lucky, for at
.oat my Arst question tho mau in chargo
mied to know whom I meant, and asked
I would know tho stono If I saw it.  I told
ji I would, and he started with mo toward
[corner of tho cemetery that I was afraid
'■ -.a the Potter's Flold. I asked him if he
ia taking mo to tho paupers' burying-
ound, for I could not somehow bear to
[(ink tbat our littlo uows-man's mothor had
Id no better place to bo laid away in. Ho
swored: ,
■"No; but If it hadn't beon for ono of your
od ohurchos down thoro in tho city, sho
'mid havo fared no hotter than all othor
upers.  You knowtho blgmUslon church

uiporB," many of thom; and so sovorfll
ours ago thoy bought a big lot up hero just
ir thom, and there's where I'm taking you,
(ere It is,' ho said, as wo stopped in front
t n big lot, nicely flJtotl up-and suro
onough thoro was our monument, at the
head of ono of tho larger graves. I knew
it at onco, juBt as it was when it left our
yard, I waa going to say, until I got a littlo
nearer to it, and saw what tho littlo chop
had done. 0, boya! I can't describe to you
tho lettering on that stono; you will havo to
go out nnd sec it for yourselves. I will confess, that something blurred my eyeB so I
couldn't read it at first. Tho little man had
tried to keep tho fines straight, and evidently thought that capitals would mako it
look hotter and bigger, for nearly ovory letter was a capital. I copied it, and hero it is,
but you want to seo it on tho stono to appreciate it:
'"MYmOTHER
SHEE DIDE LAST WEAK.
SHEE WAS ALL IIIAD.   SHEE
BED SHEAD Boo WalTiN FUR-'
And   horo, boys,   the   lettering  stopped.
After awhile I wont back to tho man in
chargo, and naked bim what further ho
knew of tho littlo follow who brought tlio
stone.
" Not much," ho said, " not much. Didn't
you notico a iresh littlo gravo noar tho ono
with tho Btono? Well, ho lies thoro. Ho
had been coming horo ovory aftornoon for
somo time, working away at that stone, and
ono day I missed liim, and thon for several
days, Then the man camo out from that
church that had burled tho mother and ordered the grnvodug bytieratdo. I asked
if it waa for the Uttle chap. Ho said it was.
Ho had sold his papers all out one day and
was hurrying along tho stroot out this way.
Ho didn't notico tho runaway team just
abovo tho crossing, and—woll—ho was run
ovor, ond didn't livo but a day or two. Ho
had In his hand whon ho was picltod up an
old tlio, sharpened down to n point, that ho
did all tho tottering on that stone with.
They said ho seemed to bo thinking only of
that until ho died, for ho kept saying: ' I
didn't got it dono, but she'll know I meant
to finish it, won't ehe. I'U tell her so, for
she'il bo waiting for me,' ond, boys, ho died
with thoso words on his lips."
Wo woro stili for awhile; none of ua
wanted to say any thing.
" And now, boys, what Bhall we doi" said
the man who had told us the story.
"Do; why here is what I want to do,"
said ono of the youngest mon, who had only
himsolf to look aftor: " Get tho best Btone
in tho yard, and hero's a V to begin it."
We all threw in, and if we didn't got him
the bost stono, we got him a good one.
Under his name—we got it from tho superintendent of the school, and put it on because of tho father, who might somo day
como back—we put: "Ho loved his
mother;" ond 111 warrant you will find no
better lettering in that cemetery than you
will find on that stone.
The superintendent of the Sunday-school
us to let him know when wo put up
stone, and we aid, ana a regular delegation of thom went out with us, he and somo
of tho teachers, all of the littlo news-man's
class, and a good many of tho other scholars, and tho good man who built Iho church
got into the city tho night before und camo
out with thom. He had hoard something of
tho story from tho teacher, but you ought to
have seen him when ho looked at thoso
stonoa; tho tears ran down his chocks and
ho tlidn't try to stop thom either.
Ho made a little speech, and after wo had
sot the stono told the scholars how tho littlo follow had loved and worked for his
mother, and how he had denied himself to
put up this littlo stone to hor memory. Ho
told them that the little follow lovod tho
Saviour, too, and tried to live to pleaso Him.
" Children," ho said, " I would rather bo
that bravo, loving, Christian littlo newsboy, ond Uo there with that on my tombstone, than bo King of tho world ond not
love and respect my mothor."
Aud all I havo to Bay Is, Ibeliovo many a
groat, rich ono dies without leaving half ns
much to tho world as tho littlo news-man
did.—The Advance.
SOME  PATENT   TRICKS.
How Innocont Inventors Aro IJled by Fro*
fosslouul Tricksters.
When an inventor receives a patent, his
namoia immortalized in tho Official Odteite,
and he immediately becomes an object of attack from a hoardo of hungry asplrauts ror
monoy, among whom nro ex-clerks, patent
brokers and protended legal lights of varying dogreos, Tho patenteo, saya the 'Uc'eh-
iffc American, is deluged with circulars and
lotters from this class of gentry. Borne
writo to inform him confidentially that his
patent io good for nothing; but on receipt:
of a certain feo thoy will set it right- and
mako it souud as u silver dollar. Others
pleasantly inform tlio now-ilndgcd Inventor
that thoy havo rend his patent with great
pleasure, consider it toboa very voluttbl*
invention. If properly introduced, much
money can bo soon realized. Tho State of
Iowa, they say, Is worth &0-03O; Ohio, SJB,-
000;Pennsylvania, Wfl,000,and soon. All
thnt is necessary is to print some circulars
nnd do n littlo blowing, which tho broker
goncroiisiy offers to do ou receipt from tiio
Inventor of ton to fifty dollars cash in advance, Another writes to sny ho has an
actual offer of §10,000 for the patent for Can-
adu, provided the patent is nt once taken,
whicli ho will procure on receipt of the necessary monoy. It is almost needless to suggest these schemes arc designed to fleece
the inventor. Tho so-cnllcd patent-sellers
rarely effects a bono fldo salo. They de
pend upon tho advance fees obtained us
above for n livelihood. Bomo of thom have
thus grown rich and prosperous.
Thoso protended sollors try to make it up
pear they aro reliable by giving rcspcctablo
references, and cite names of patentees for
whom thoy purport te havo sold patents.
Ono mode of procuring theso references is
as follows: Thoy write the patentee thoy
havo a customer who will buy a county
right ln Minnesota for ffiOO, and pay by
deeding 115 acres of land in Arkansas, really
worth 91,000, but the parties aro so anxious
to obtain the patent rltrht they aro willing
to lot tho land go and take tbe right, in eet
tlemont, provided ISO cash iB paid and a
mortgage Is given fortfiOO. This done, tho
patent brokor closos the transaction, receives tho fill) cash, which Is tho full valuo
of tho land, also receives a mortgage for
$500, together with tho patent deed. At the
samo timo the broker Is careful to obtain a
written certificate from tho inventor stating: "I tako pleasure in saying that X. Y.
Z. & Co. havo sold a patent right for me, at
my prico, and on terms satisfactory, and I
recommend thom," otc. In thla way references aro secured which make quite an Impressive show on circulars, while the inventor ib bo ashamed of having been so
easily duped, he keeps mum,
Ono of tho latest tricks is tho following:
Tho patentee receives a letter from A. & B.
asking for how much he will Bell his patent
for such and such a State. Ho replies, giving a price, say 15,000. The patenteo Boon
aftor rocolvos another letter from X Y. Z.,
saying that A. & 11, writo they hnvo corresponded with you, and now say tticy havo
decided to purchase tbo patent ou the terms
named, provided tho tltlo and claims aro
found to ho correct. To ascertain thia they
require tlmt X. Y. Z. Bhall examino and report upon tho patent, othorwiso A. & li.
will not purchnso; that if tho patenteo
wishoa to complete tho solo, ho must remit
fifty dollars to pay for tlio examination,
which is a work Independent of the sale,
and must bo independently paid. Tlio inventor sends tho monoy; a report ia mado
adverse to tho patontoo; no purchase is
mado; none was ovor Intended. Such area
fow of the adroit schemes now In voguo for
swindling "innocont" inventors.
More Forcible Than Polite.
Whon Dr. John McLean was president of
Princeton College the students woro required to attend a Biblo olass undor hts Instruction. Ono of tho studonto onco relieved tho tedium of tho hour by bringing
In with hlm a small dog which ho kept eon-
coaled undor hia desk. When tho exercises
hnd woll begun ho pinched the dog'."- tall,
nnd tho dog yelped. Tho good president
looked about, look in the situation, but c:iid
nothing. Shortly of tor tho tall woo again
pinched, and again tho dog yelped. Thereupon Dr. McLean looked around once more,
and thon slowly Baldi "If tlmt othor pup
would only let that pup nlouo, then that
pup would bohnvo ItBolf."

Capt. Pittendrigh addressed tho
police magistrate this morning, com*-
plaming of the disgraceful conduct of
u large number of boys on tho Crescent
last night whilo tho rifles wero at skirmishing drill. Ho stated that thoy
acted in a most disordorly and blackguard manner, and that the language
used by them was so vile as to force
ladies, who had strolled in that direction, to return homo. He asked that
on future occasions a constablo bo told
off for special duty, and that nn example be mado of a fow of tho worst.
Mr. Atkinson promised that tho matter should bo attended to, and that if
any of theso lads were brought beforo
him charged with Buch conduct, thoy
would have good reason to regret thoir
misbehaviour. The conduct of the
boys last night was certainly disgraceful, and their language, which w,ib
enough to mnko onu shudder, coining
as it did from such young lips.

Mr. J. Hemaus, tho woll known
rancher of Cache creek, arrived in the
city last night with a consignment, of
cattle for Victoria. Mr. Hemaus reports that in all hit experience tho
cattle never wintered better than thoy
did last winter and they aro in as prime
condition now »3 they usually nre in
Juno. Tbo prospects for tho cattle
trade aro a littlo bettor than in former
years, but thu supply will bo fully
equal to tho demand. The grass on
the hills is looking splendid and n good
liny crop will be a certainty if tho rain
does uot hold off too long. Very few
now settlors aro going into the Cache
meek district thia spring, but tho Chil-
coteti country is attracting quito
o numbor. Chilcoton would soon be
well settled but for the fact that ttie
up country people still dread tho Indians of that tribe. Tho grass lands of
Chilcoton aro considered the finest in
tho province and somo day it will become the ranching centre. Mr. Mem-
ans will bring down n train load of cattlo ovory two weeks during the season.

Unsavory Rose.
Yesterday aftornoon au Indian
woman, who had been in town making
purchases, met with an accident by
which Bho and her child nearly lost
their lives. The woman had bought
about 825 worth of provisions, aud had
loaded thom into her canoe at tho slip
opposite Mounce Bro3." storo, when a
mnn named Wm. Roso came up and
asked to be allowed to go home with
her. She refused him any such privilege and got into tho canoo leaving the
littlo boy on tho wharf till sho cuuld
bring the craft a littlo nearer Iho slip.
Roso picked up the child, put him in
tho canoo and Btepped in himself. Tho
canoe was several feot from tho slip
and Rose was forced to mako a spring
in ordet to got aboard. The force of
tho jump wbs sufficiently great to upset the canoe, and he with tho woman,
child and provisions were capsized into tho wator. Tho woman after a hard
struggle managed tu reach the
shore, but the child would have
beon drowned but for Mr.
Jas. Mounce, who saw tliu accident
and went tu the rescue nnd succcedt-d
in saving the littlo chap. The provisions and a number uf utensils in the
bont wero lost. Roso was arrested
and this morning appenred boforo the
polico magistrate, who fined him in all
§35 or in default 2 months in gaol with
hard labor. He was unable to pay
and consequently will havo to work
hia sontencc out in tho chain gang.
The Bund Arranged.
Tlio bond to bo given by C. M.
Sheafo & Co, to tho city of New Wostminstor, as n guarnntco that the railway between this city and Whatcom
will be operated and maintained forever, has beon satisfactorily arranged,
and agreed to by Mr. I. B. Fisher of
the Bank of British Columbia. Tho
Southern Railway Company and tho
Bellingham Bay Railway and Navigation Co. havo boen agreed on as Burettes for the 3500,000 bond, which is to
be given on the completion of tho
road, and is to bo perpetual. The
half million dollars will cover tho
operation and inaintennnco of 43 milos
of road, which when built and equipped
will cost 81,600,000. Tho bond of tho
companies was taken in preference to
that of an individual, on the ground
that an individual may die or becomo
insolvent, rendering tho bond worth-
loss, whilo Bound corporations aro on
the whole more substantial surety.
The change iu the personnel of tho
bond has given geneml satisfaction
all concerned.
Mr. King and Mr, Dickinson left
this afternoon fur Seattle, and tho former gentleman hopes to bo back next,
week for the purpose of settling up all
outstanding liabilities. Homny be 10-
quired to go ub far oast us St. Paul bo
fore rc-visiting Westminster. Arrangements have beon made with the syndicate, which proposes purchasing the
bonds, that if tho report of Messrs.
Hewitt ond Lombard ia accepted the
money will be obtainable immediately.
The Exposition Fund.
The abovo fund in Tub Columbian
will bo found to loot up now the fairly
respectable sum of §1,102.85. A perusal of tho terms ovor the subscription
list will show that tho monoy so con*
tributed wna designed to bo "applied
to preparing exhibition grounds and
buildings in the city, for increasing
tho amount offered in prizes, and for
furthering tho exhibition in other
ways." Considerable money will of
course bo raised in other ways for the
samo purposes but tho "fund" will
como iu handy a3 well, and we are reminded that it is getting nbout timo to
collect the "spcuidulux." Wo would
make the following suggestion to this
end, namely, thnt subscribers should
pay thoir subscriptions into tho Bank
of Montreal to tho order of Thoa. Cunningham, oE this city, whn, besides
boing vice-president of tho Agricultural Association, is chairman
of tho park committeo nnd a
member of tho city council, and therefore in a position to make a judicious
apportionment of tho fund to the
various purposes for which it was subscribed. To give aullicient timo for
subscribers to tho fund to approve
or disapprove of the abovo oitggestion,
wo would also Buggest that two weeks
be allowed to ellipse boforo paying any
subscriptions.

Tho   Seattlo   Post-Intelligencer   of
Tuesday last says:—In a talk with Mr*
Eugene  Cantield,   president of   the
Bellingham Cay Railway and Navigation Company yesterday, it wus learned that tho gentlemen sent out by tho
t'tutern syndicate havo made thoir report,   which  strongly   endorses   tho
country and the management uf the
road.   The report hns been  seen   hy
Mr. Oanfield.   In this report tho §3,-
350,000 necessary   to  completo  the
road from Seattle to Now Westminster
is reconimondod to be advanced to the
company.   It   is  expected  that  the
monoy will bo roady  within  a  very
shoit time, nnd  then   wurk   will  bo
commenced all along  the  lino.   Tho
portion if the line between Seattle nnd
Whatcom is unity-eight miles in length,
and from Whatcom to the British Columbia line is 2\.!, miles,  or a total of
119.V miles.   At $21,500'par milo tho
llf>J miles would cost §2,987,1500. The
.ill miles from tlie British Columbia
line to Now  Westminster at   §20,000
per mile would cost $550,000.   This
addod to tho cost of the  119jt  miles
makes a total  of  83,537,500.   These
were tho estimates made by President
Eugene Onnfiohl.   The representatives
of tho eastern syndicate1 cut this down
to $3,350,000,   or  took  off 8187,500
from hia estimate.   The exports of the
syndicate carefully examined tho timber and resources nhmg tho lino of tho
road and discovered that Mr. Canfield's
estimates fell far beneath thoir own.
Mr, Canfiold states thne his estimates
wero purposely made small  in  order
that ho might not bo accused of exaggeration.   On ono portion of tho road,
from a certain point to another point
Mr. Oanfield estimated that there were
1,800,000,000 feet of timber.   The ex-
perts of the syndicate looked over tho
tract in question and reported  that
thoro wore 4,240,000,000 feet in it.
