The hints which we see from time
to time of a boom in the ancient
cities of Palestine are worthy of

Canada's destikv.
London, Sept. 22.—The Spectator today discusses Senator . Sherman's iuu-
geitiom regarding annexation. It lays
Canada will diipoto of her own" destinies and can lee no reason to believe
thit the purposes being absorbed in
the great republic. It has always been
a matter of surprise that the attraction
of the mighty itate by their side hai
been so small for Oanadans. Were
there a union of the Dominion and the
United States no atate on earth would
have auch a territory, suoh a position j
such a potential resource: for: induenc-
ing the history of mankind. Hut apparently the Canadians would ; rather
remain British, than be freed from
foreign troubles by becoming citizens
of the United States. Moreover they
think thoy have a third alternative.
Why ihould they not be a nation with
a hiitoiy of their own Tt. At present
they are content, but if a change appears inevitable or if England should,
prove effete, Canadians will certainly
try to became a nation. For the pres-
etit they can wait.

London, Sept. 22l—Great anxiety
prevaila in British ministerial circles
over tlio reported sudden death of tlio
ameer of, Afghanistan. Although tho
officials have discredited the rumor,
the ameer's death at any moment
would surprise no one acquainted with
hii condition. For leveral years Abdurrahman has suffered from periodical
attacks .of. gout, and, it is not quite u
yolr ago since a well-known English
physician visited Cabul and reported
to the secretary'of India that the
ameer, in addition to having tho gout,
wis suffering from nn insurable disease
His.tenure'of the thrum therefore,
Oven if the report of hit death is untrue, is 'very precarious .and politicians-
are prepared to learn at uny time that
intrigue or disense has carried him off.
The Indian government is actively
engaged in taking'itook of the position
and il preparing a policy in the evont
of the disappearance of Abdurruhman
from the throne. The death of the
ameer would not only linvTi a acriout
effect on England and English politics,
but might also change the whole situation of. 'affairs in the Bnlkniis by precipitating s wiir between Russia and
England.

In the provincial estimates passed
last April there appears the sum of
$10,000 for a new court house at
this oity. No one has as yet seen
anything of any steps being taken
to expend this appropriation for the
purpose designed. It is surely late
enough in the year to begin to "get
a move on," and anyone acquainted
with the present circumscribed and
ill-ventilated temple of justice in
this city will agree with us that
there is urgent necessity for a new
court house being erected as soon as
possible. Why the delay which has
already pccurred we cannot say.
Our member, Mr. Bole, beings legal
gentleman himself, might be supposed to be anxious from personal
grounds, even, to urge expedition in
the matter. He has promised, however to "see about it," and we hope
soon to see some very substantial
developments. - We will have considerable fine building weather yet
this season, and we can see no excuse lor delaying the erection of the
new court house any longer. If
there is, we should like to hear it.
The Times of last Wednesday had
a communication from a Port Simpson Indian, Kiohard Wilson by
name, and also a leading article, very
properly complaining that up to the
present time tho Indians of the Naas
and the Skeena Rivers have received
no reply from either of the two governments in respect to the questions
laid before the joint commission of
the Dominion and provincial governments about a year ago. Mr.
Plants has reported to the provincial
government, and it is presumed that
Mr. Cornwall has done the same to
the Dominion authorities, but a year
has elapsed, and the Indians are still
waiting a reply, Laxity in such
matters with the natives has invariably caused trouble, and it is safe
to say always will. We are not
prepared to say that the governments in question have purposely or
rashly delayed action in this matter,
but it would be as well to remember
that the noble red man is very impatient under the " law's delays "—
he has not had the education of centuries in tJuojatter, like his pale-
faced brethren— and his failing in
this respect should be taken into
consideration by governments; but,
as a matter of fact, it seldom is.
Aocording to a Seattle paper of a
recent date the Northern Pacific is
demonstrating its "oppressing" propensities, at the expense of the
"queen city of the sound," to the
verge of offensiveness. Our cotemporary says: "It' is now reported
on the best authority that the
Northern Pacific Railroad Oompany
refuses to run a special mail. train
between Portland and Seattle. Its
arrogance in this matter passes all
comprehension. * * * We are
informed that the special mail train
would facilitate the work of the
Seattle office to the extent of two
extra mail clerks in distributing and
sorting the mails. The great drawback at the Seattle office now is a
want of space in which to employ
iti preient force. The present
quarters are entirely inadequate in
size and room. Much of the mail
could be distributed on the mail oar.
Tbe postoffice department requested
the running of the special mail train
became the magnitude of the mail
demanded it But the Northern
Pacific Railroad Oompany, the creature ol the government of late, assuming not only to run the Territory
of Washington, now refuses to obey
the will of the people. Its refusal,
like many other acts, is a direct
blow against the city of Seattle.
The oompany is endeavoring by every
means in its power to make Tacoma
the distributing center of the mail
service upon Puget Sound. * *
The unsatisfactory condition of the
mail service in Seattle would have
been greatly improved if the Northern Pacifio Railroad Oompany would
perform a plain duty it owes to the
people. But with the powerful
friends which it hai, and who are
enemies in our own camp, the
Northern Pacific will gain its point.
Tacoma will become the distributing
center of the mail service upon
Puget Sound. The postal department of the government could have
compelled the Northern Pacific to
have put on this extra train had
thil corporation a line from Stuck
Junction to Seattle, and this the
wily corporation well knew. After
looking the matter up thoroughly its
management learned that the government oould not compel the road
to do so and most insolently refused
to comply with the simple requeit.
However, the Northern Pacific road
will learn when the election' is over
that they cannot thwart the will of
the people so easily in the choice of
their legislators." Railway corporations in the matter ol "oppression"
an about tbe same everywhere. It'i
their nature.
Our cotemporary of the Vancouver News appears to have been hit,
and hit hard, by a short article that
appeared in this paper on Saturday
—if squirning, ground and lofty
tumbling, sky-scraping and gravel-
scratching can be taken as evidences.
We had expected that our cotemporary would feel bad, and we are not
at all surprised at these manifestations. We are perfectly satisfied at
the way in which our shot has
taken effect, and shall not follow our
cotemporary through the three-quarters of a column of rambling inanity
which he hai thrown off to
relieve his mind, or, perhaps, his
stomach—to judge from his frequent
references to "biliousness" lately.
To people of ordinary discernment
the whole thing il just aa transparent as the officiousness displayed on
various occasions, and the motives
which prompted this officiousness.
We don't bite worth a cent at the
wistful little ill-concealed hint to be
instructed which our cotemporary
slyly advances. ' Wc have stated
merely that our. suit water cotemporary has made himself ridiculous
(not, as he probably fondly imagines,
and appears to suppose, in his own
words, that ho has committed an
" outrage and an injury to the interests of the city"). Where the
Nexos got such an expression, except on the good old theory that the
wish is often father to the thought,
it is difficult to imagine. We must
say it is a sad slip of the smiling
mask (disclosing the envenomed
fangs) which our cotemporary would
fain present at all times to "our
New Westminster readers." What
have you been taking in your salt
water, friend News, lately. In vino
Veritas, you know, it is said. These
and other little problems should
give the News' scissors a vacation
for some time to come. In the language of several of our cotempor-
aries, " we pause for a reply."
In passing we must congratulate
our cotemporary, apart altogether
from any other question, upon the
high ground he avows to have taken
with respeot to sailing right ahead
without any regard to whether his
subscription list is increasing, or
the reverse. Shake! friend Mews, we
are with you every time, We could
almost have wept over the pathetic
little incident about a certain Vancouver alderman "stopping hii paper" and "sneaking into a saloon
every morning Afterwards to read
the news"—we suppose our cotemporary meant to say the News—
but we hardly knew whioh to pity
the most—our cotemporary, the
saloon-keeper, or the the thirsty alderman. While we are "pausing
for a reply" to those other little
questions, you know, it might
be as well to inform "our New
Weseminster readers," which was
the hero, the clown and the
villain of the little drama.
As to that "job work" of the
0. P. R., it might have been as well
if our cotemporary hadn't mentioned it If it shows anything at
all it shows that the O, P. R. sends
its job work to this office because it
cannot get it satisfactorily done in
Vancouver, and that notwithstanding this unsolicited work, The
Columbian does not believe in
demeaning itself that "thrift may
follow fawning."

Th. visit to MlllicltiStill waalinderan

whioh -saMorcoJ.nd binding.
Ifwas .bout two miles In the raoun-
taliis, awiy from any sottlemont. Tho
instance wis travelled on tlio back ot a
mountain colt.
Alter following a narrow, beaten track
through bushes, over rooks, down hillsides, across ravines and through mountain puses, a point of a preoiploe was
reached. "•'■ ' J
My compuitous pointed to the dopths
below and told me to watoh a cot-tain
spot. A blue curl of smoke arose, whioh
was (com the still we were going to
visit";?";! ;-,%   '•;"''">-. ,;. .
The* down the narrow mountain side
we rods guided by tlio sensible animal.
If a em of-hi. .foot was made, eternity
would lav. lest) our doom, . '■■■ ■'■
Soon a point was reached about 200
yards from the still. One of my companions took from bis pocket a whistle,
made of a piece of recil, and gave two
shrill whistles, which wero answered.
Tho anlmslB were tied, .and one of the
men said to the other, "Jim, htepoopors
are too good; I guess wo haa bettor
cover them."
With these words the two mon proceeded to bind a eloth over my eyes.
After walking around and about, a ciivo
was entered.
Whjs the door wu tlirqwrj :.:±,jay
eyes were freed Mid a aoeiVo. .crest
was stotured.;; f,..
Th. room wis suave™ diig ,out' .01
a coal doposlt, about twenty hy sixteen
feot, In whioh were arranged tho worms
nnd barrels, with piles of corn and dried
fruit Hanging about wero gum and
pistols, near whleh-wae-a "litis made.to
open and close at. moiuen.';.-uitlco. - -.-
The interior wis mggsitlvo of th. wild
nature of the mountains. The men Inside were dressed In clothing;of coarse
material made at home;. Their arms were
bared nnd grizzly with hair. Their faces
caused them to have tlio appearance of
demons.
In a corner of the .cavern was a man
busily engaged in pouring wildcat whisky
In a funnel, whioh was conveyed off
through » pipe made of mountain cone.
. " Where, rfoes that go to?" Was asked.
"You can't know all, stronger; whnr
that runs to you nor any other man-
will know! but It Is taken off you,can.
bet on it." ,,,;,,
Behind a tub of sour, mat'' was a ltttU;
ragged nlne-yeir-old clill''. vliohad a
stluk stirring the content':, "lie little
thing was covered with dirt; arid half olad
iu coarse homespun.'
" Chunk It up, Mag, and come hereaud
see the itranger."    ' .'
The child, halt frightened and cowered,
approached me, but her timidity over-
oamo her and she stopped,
"Come here, you little hell cat and
sing," was apoken by one of the men. ,
The child bewail to sing in a; voice
as plaintive as. a dove, and before she
had finished the tears were streaming
down her cheeks,
"What Is the  child's   name?" was
"W'e*sll;hiir..tt*|t, lor short, Tli»t,
child has a history as'long as your
arm, but she will never tell It Sho
knows she will get the strap."
Poor little pitiful object to be In the
hands of such demons.   But how did sho
. ei'thoro?
Hor dark blue, childish eyes lookod
up, moistened with tears, and pleaded to
be spared the lash. Her story was a
strange one, and was calculated to touch
tho chords of a hardened heart, |   .
One cold morning six years before, a
man was seen slowly riding along the
mountain road with a child In front
on tho saddle. The snow was falling,
nnd ho tenderly clasped hor wraps around
I  hor. ..      ipfc £
Up the mountain higher worn two then
who had been Introduced, And they wero
gazing at the sight below.
" Take the glass and see If you are sure
ho Is 0 spy."       *
Soon the sharp ring of a rifle was heard
and the traveller dropped Utoless from
, his ssddle, ud th. child was taken to th.
cave of tha moonshiners.  The child his
, been there since.
The duty of the child Is to mix sour
mash and keep her mouth closed, which
she performs faithfully.
The question was asked of these men:
"Are you not afraid of the revenue men
1 ud will they not get you?"
I    " Stranger, we are not afraid of heaven
i or hell, much leas anything on'two legs.

Nothing could Induce hlm to form one

Whenever a thirteenth arrived at the

The vitality of this hoary superstition,
whioh no doubt or -,'lnully grow out of

It, Is remarkable, j ;,

It ii considered probable that next
year the department of merino and
fisheries will undertake the transportation of lobsters from the Atlantic to
tlie FaciRc coast for tlm purpose of
raising tho crUBtacon on our western
shores. The experiments made in the
United States have shown that tho
transportation oan bo .accomplished
with success, and the only point appears to be as to whether tho lobster
would flourish in the milder waters of
the Pacific. --Ottawa Free Preis,
Weddings.
Kamloops had Lwo fashionable weddings last week, and. from the reports
of tho Sentinel, it is evident tho Chineae residents of the inland capital will
be on short allowance for the next six
months, as for aa rice is concerned.
The first event was the marriage of
Mr. Pembprtou, a wealthy rancher
and Miss Kate Cochrane, formerly of
this city. The ceremony waa performed by Rev. Canon Cooper. A magnificent breakfast was afterwards aervod
at the Grand Pacific Hotel. The sec
ond event was the wedding of Walter
Dewdney, S.M., gold commissioner, to
Miss Chipp, daughter of the well-known
Dr. Ohipp.    '

A despatch from Ottawa aaya: Alex.
Begg, comtnisioner of the B. C.
government in the Crofter colonization
scheme, was in tlie city yesterday on
his way to tho Pacific, Tho question
as to the. settlement of Scotch Crofters
in British Columbia will, ho states,
como before n special committed in
November. Mr. Bogg hna asked the
British government for a loan of £150,-
000 for 1,200 families, or about £120
each, and a reduction in interest from
oh to 3 per cent., no interest to be collected for tlie first five years, and the
whole debt to be liquidated within
twenty-five years. Mr. Begg is hopeful of a satisfactory settlement.
From koolcuay.
Mr. T. F. Sinclair, contractor tor the
Kooicj'sy ennui, arrived in tho city
yesterday and reports that the work on
tho excavation of the canal iB finished
and the building of the looks is being
proceeded with. The gates for the
locks have been finished, and as soon
as the timber work in connection with
them is ready they will be put in place.
After the, locks are finished some
dredging will be necessary to let the
water into the canal.
The steamer from Gulden is making
regular trips to Kootenay, and will
continue to do so until tha 10th pro'x.,
when it will be laid up for the winter.
■Some dredging will be done next year
which Will allow the steamer to run as
late as Christmas.
A valuable galena find has been
made on a creek three miles north of
Columbia Lake. The vein is ten, feet
thick and is one of the richest ever
found in the province. A company
will be formed to operate it.
A miner named Brady has struck
gold ou Findlay Creek in paying quantities and also on Perry Creek, near
Col.' Baker's ranch, A company has
been formed and is working these
claims.       -
OfentleM on the Southern.
Ten miles of the right of way for the
Southern Railway is completed and
will be ready for grading as Eoon as
the cross-secti-amugia sufficiently advanced. The engineers are now cross-
sectioning the line and will have
•Rough ready for tho contractors to allow work to be commenced on the grading in about two weeks. Mr. Jamei
Leamy, who has the contract for grading the line to the boundary, says he
will begin operations at the earliest
possible date and if the weather is at
all favorable trains will be running to
the boundary by March 1st. Mr.
Leamy has made a thorough inspection
of the line, and finds it to be easy railroading throughout, there being no
cuts over the entire distance, and a
food bottom with no heavy fills. Tbe
lis will average from 4 to 5 feet,
whioh is very similar to pruirio grading. On tho whole, Mr, Leamy thinks
the work will be comparatively ensy,
and its progress will necessarily be
rapid, aa iliere aro no heavy cuts or
rock work to check or delay operations. Fivo hundred men will be employed ou tho contract at the start,
but this number will be increased if
the weather il favorable for outdoor
work.
