John, I wish you'd take this address.
They advertise garden-hose so cheap
I think I'd liko a dozon pairs, for I
shall certainly got mine soiled soon
enough to want to change them often
if I'vo got to pick tho strawberries
and all that sort of thing. (Hands
him an advertisement which reads,
"Garden-hose by the foot or yard.")
One of our Sunday school teachers,
ou a recent oceus.'iou, told her pupils
that when thoy put thoir pennies in
the contribution box she wanted
each one to repeat a Bible verso
suitable for the occasion. Tho first
boy dropped in a cent, saying : "Ho
that give tli to to tho poor londcth to
the Lord." The third and youngest
hoy dropped his penny, saying; "A
fool and his money are soon parted."
One moro chance—Billy Dobson,
proprieter of tho Bluo Front saloon
and gambling liouse, was tho first
subscriber to tho Kicker* Ho encouraged us and occasionally lent us
money, and our gratitude has pre
vented us from drawing publio attention to his den of iniquity. Wo
cannot promise to hold off* much
longer. Wo will give him one moro
chanco to reform tho placo, and if ho
doesn't improve it we shall give htm
threo or four columns por week of
tho hottest kind of language. Gratitude is all right up to a certain limit.
Beyond that an editor owes a duty
to the public.—Arizona Kicker.
General Foe's annual report to
tho United Statos 'government on
matters connected with traflic on
tho great lakes mentions among
other interesting facts that tho 0. F.
R. steamer Alberta hod tlio greatest
mileage last season of any boat on
the lakes, having run 29,175 miles.
Speaking of the Suult Oanal the
report states that tho estimated cost
of its enlargement is $4,738,865.
Tho sum of 81,000,000 has already
boon appropriated, and an estimate
of $1,235,875 is submitted for tho
prosecution of the work during the
fiscal year ending Juno 30, 1891.
Thero should be no scarcity of money
at the Sault during tha next fow
years,
A recent enactment of the Minnesota legislature provides that no
newspupcr shall print any fact concerning executions except the hour
of their occurrence. The other day
a murderer was hanged at Littlo
Falls, Minn., and ull tho Minneapolis and St. Paul papers, wishing to
test tho constitutionality of tho law,
published full details of the execution. They contend that, inasmuch
aa the constitution of the United
States provides thnt congress shall
make no law "abridging tho freedom
of spoeoh or of the press," stato legislatures havo still less right to curtail those privileges. Their intention evidently is to combine in lighting the question in tho courts, nnd
tho result of the contest will bo
awaited with interost by tho press
of New York State, whoro a law
similar to that of Minnesota was
passed last year.
According to a batcltolor editor,
says tho Cincinnati Medical Journal, tho following is why eo many
marriages prove a failure: He
says that nine-tenths of the unhappy marriages aro the result of
green calves boing allowed to run
at largo in the society pasture without yokes ou them. Thoy marry
aud have children before thoy do
moustaches; they are futhcrs'of twins
beforo they have two pairs of pants-
and tho littlo girls thoy marry are
as old as thoir grandmothers in
schomingo. Occasionally one of
these gosling marriages turns out all
right, but it is a clear case of luck.
If there waa a law against young
galoots sparking or worrying before
thoy have out all thoir teeth, we
supposo the little cusses would
evade it in some way, but there
ought to bo a sentiment against it.
It is time enough for theso bantams
to think of finding a pullot whon
thoy liavo raisod money enough to
buy a bunch of laths to build a henhouse. But they soe a girl who
looks cunning, nnd they think that
there aro not going to bo girls
enough to go around, and they begin to get their work in real spry*
and beforo thoy are aware of the
sanctity of the marriage relation
thoy are hitched for life, and before
thoy own a cookstovo or a bedstead,
thoy have to got up in the night and
go for a dootor, so frightonod that
thoy run themselves out of breath
and abuse the doctor becauso ho
doos not run too, nnd when the dootor gets thoro thero is not enough
linen in the houso to wrap up a
baby doll.

proposition to abolish entirely all dif-

TltaSKIUED KltALEUH.
Washinoton, D. C, July 31. —A
prominent official to-day snid it was
evident that the administration did
not look with disfavor upon tho seizure of tho British vessels uuapcolod of
pi-aching upon United Statea seal fishing ground;:. The caso uf tho soi-'uro
and search of tho Triumph wliich was
afterwards released because no seal
skins wore found on board, might bo
a moro serious matter than lho seizure
and detention of tlio Black Diamond
fur it wos beyond tho right of thu
United States to search suspected ves
sels outside of what was conceded to
be tho limits of the jurisdiction of the
United Statos. This government, lie
■-aid, claim that right within a limit
not yet acknowledged by England,
and the settlement, after all, ia to be
that of the jurisdiction.

Major A. P. Patrick, uf Ottawa,
btates that ho has discovered petroleum
at Crow's NoBt Pass in tho Rockies,
tho largest over found in that region,
within easy rcacTi of tho railway. Major Patrick says: "For eleven weeks
wo have been prospecting among tho
mountains for coal oil deposits; 1 am
happy to say we havo boen eminently
successful. We have located a considerably quantity of oil buuln, somo
on tho oat-tern slope aud some 011 tho
British Columbia sido. So aoun as wo
felt perfectly certain and justified as
to tho importance of our discoveries,
wo took tho necessary precaution to
have several of tho samples assayed.
Tho result iB 01 por oent. jubrieating
oils, 5 per cent, heavy oil, 1 por cont,
water and 3 per cont, foreign matter.
This is the bost oil evor discovered—
far ahead of tho Pennsylvania oil
fields. I havo mado choice and registered in my own namo 40 acres on
thia sido of tho summit, and abont 500
acres in British Columbia; also two
other olaima not yet surveyed. Thoro
is alao plenty of head, being about 4,*
500 foet above the lerol of the sea;
tho crude oil can bo ruu off in pipos
any distance. I understand the Gait
Company havo stated that thoy will
lay pipes for us to Lethbridge free if
wo will j-ump the oil for them."

On another pago will be found a
copy of tho amended or now proposals in the matter of the Westminster Southern Railway which have
been agreed upon between tho company and Mr. Nelson Bennot, ns
contractor, in tho place of 0. M,
Sheafe tk Co., the original contrae-
toru- and which the Southern Railway havo decidod to pubWsh for the
information of the citizens. The
document explains itself for the
most part, but a little elucidation
Upon some features und a comparison of the few points of din'erehca
between the now and tlie old agreements may assist tho reader to a
clearer and easier apprehension of
the exact meaning and intent of tlio
new agreement, tho substance of
which, embodied in a by-law, tho
ratepayers will probably lmve
opportunity of passing upon '
near future.
quenco. It is implied; of courso,
that the bonus mentioned, to be
paid as tho work progresses and is
certified to, with a balance payablo
after tho completion of the line to
Bclliughniu Bay and the execution
of the $500,000 bond, is tho bonus of
§150,000 givon for tho samo work
under tho old agreement. This is
the sum that tho city willl bo required lo pay in full by the first of
July next (tho date lixed for tho
completion nud thorough equipment
of the line from this city to Bellingham Bay), provided a ferry instead
of a bridgo is adopted for tho present
ns tho mode of conveyance across tho
river. From clauses four and fivo
ib will bo learned that tho con
tractor wants four months from the
execution of tlio agreement in which
to decide whether he will furnish n
bridgo or a ferry to begin with,
and two months additional to begin
tho bona fide construction of the
bridge if decided upon, the bridgo
to bu completed, as part of tho first
seotion of lho rond, on or boforo tho
lirst of July next. But, iu tho
event of deciding to construct the
bridge, iv further bonus of $100,000,
must bo voted by the city, to bi*
paid when tho bridge is completed
and passed by tho engineers, the
understanding being that the said
bridge is to bo a free traflic as well
as railway bridge, and to bo maintained forever in good repair by tho
contractor.
i the
It will be seen, in the first place,
that tho now contractor stipulates
to have the Southern Railway completed to Bellingham Bay on or before the first of July next. This
implies, as we read tho agreemont,
that tho road from this city to Bellingham Bay must be fully equipped
and ready for operation by the date
mentioned, cither a railway and freo
traffic bridgo or a ferry in operation
to convoy cars, freight, and passengers across the Fraser at this city,
and all necessary approaches, stations, round-houses, machine and repair shops, freight yards, etc., constructed within the city and elsewhere along the line where required.
It is also implied, as will be seen
hereafter, that a railway and traflic
bridge will be built from tho lower
end of the city to Lulu Island, where
the round-houses, machine shops,
freight yards, otc, are, by the agreemont, to be constructed. A point
of difference between lho old and
tbo new agreements might be noted
hero. The original agreemont, it
will bo remembered, callod for £75,-
000 workshops. Thcono under discussion provides that (sec clauso eight)
"uitichine and repair shops for the
whole lino of tho Corporation [meaning that portion of the lino within
tho houndariea of the province]
amply sufficient for the repairs of
the rolling stock, shall bo erected,"
oto. Mr. Bonnet, we believo, declares that it is impracticable and
out of the question for workshops to
be erected hero to servo the whole
Line of tho road in American as well
as Oanadian territory, and his position on that point iB not unreasonable, as most will agree.
Olauso three is nearly an exact
copy of tho same numbered clauso
' in the old agreement, and provides
for tho payment by tho Railway
Oompany to the contractor of §20,-
000 of the bonds of the company per
lineal mile of the railroad completed,
uud also payment of thn bonus a.
the work progresses, payments of
neither to be made oxcept as certified by engineors mutually agreed
upon by the city and the contractor.
It is provided in clause six that the
contractor shall, upon tho proper
completion and equipment of tho
said line of railway—that is, thn
line of railway as far as Bellingham
Bay, with either a bridgo or ferry
across tho Frasor, and tho works on
Lulu Island and tho bridgu to the
same-tbo contractor shall be entitled
to receive tho residue of tho bonds
and bonus still unpaid, also tho capital stock of the Railway Oompany,
oxcept a certain number of shares
provided for, but not until tho proper execution of a bond in tlto sum
of .'••500,000 for securing tbe maintenance and operation forever of the
line of railway so constructed ami
completed and also of tho contemplated connecting line with somo
American transcontinental line of
railway. This connecting link, it
will bo noticed, the contractor, Mr.
Bennot, binds himself to have constructed within four years from July
of !aBt year-—three years from July,
1889—thus securing tbo construction of tho entire lino within the
same period its provided undor tho
original agreement (seo clause seven
of the old agreement). Mr. Bennet, it
ii understood, declines to bind himself to connect with nny certain
transcontinental railway or at any
certain point, wishing to be free to
mako tho best possible terms with
rival roads and oities, It is stated
that it was . the cast-iron conditions
by which Sonator Oanfield was
bound to tho Railway Company and
this city that prevented him from
successfully financing hie undertaking on tho othor side and making
other nocessary arrangements; and
Mr. Nelson Bennet, being apparently
a far-seeing and shrewd business man,
and having besides tho advantago of
his predecessor's experience in tho
Southern Railway, docs not propoBO
to founder upon tho samo rock.
Continuing, wo shnll take up
othor points iu the agreement as
they suggest themselves, without
particular regard to order of se-
Thus a total of 6250,000 will bo
paid  hy thu city in bonuses, in consideration of the completion of tho
Hno to Bellingham Bay, a railway
and traflic bridge, instead of a ferry,
across tho Fraser, a similar bridge
connecting Lulu Island with this
city, and all  the  other necessary
works  mentioned before, including
an outer   wharf  extension for tbo
track all along tho water front from
where tho main bridgo  strikes   the
city to Lulu Island, and an approved
§500,000 bond to secure tho extension of  the lino from Bellingham
Bay to connection with somo American transcontinental railway, within
threo years from July of tho present
year, tho condition  being that an
equal annual   portion of   thin final
conuocting link is to bc constructed
until completed,   It is hardly necessary to mention hero that tho add:"
tional   bonus of  §100,000 forthe
bridgo was contemplated from the
first, aud   is, therefore, not a now
feature of the agreement undor discussion.   A point of difference not
yet mentioned between tho present
agreemont and   the  understanding
with tho former contractors is that
four hundred, instead of two hundred acres (of tho total grant of six
hundred acres made by tho legislature
to tho city) is now to be given, for
freight yards, machine and repair
shops, etc,', ou   Lulu Island,   But
thu said lands  (see clauso thirteen)
are granted  to the contractor '.subject   to   the   terms and conditions
mentioned in thu act of the legislative assembly of British Columbia
granting   tho   same."    Turning to
tlio act in question, chap. 12 of tho
provincial  statutes, 1S89, wo find
that tho "terms und conditions" are,
in ellect as follows;   To erect and
maintain   a  good and substantial
traflic bridge, suitable for passengers
and wagons, between Westminster
city and the island;  to construct
and keep in repair a good und substantial wagon road, uot less than
twenty feet wido, from said bridge
through Lulu Island to the boundary
of Richmond municipality; and to
construct all canals, drains, ditches
and dykes   necessary for draining
said  hinds,     Wo have   no   space
to-day  for u  word of comment,
properly speaking, but tho foregoing,
wo trust, with the published agreemont in another column.will enable
our readers to thoroughly grasp the
present situation in Southern   Rail
wny matters.   We may have overlooked some points, but shall roturn
to the subject when  wo get  moro
time.

Looking up, with a laugh ln his oyos.

Hp/nT, though it is conventionally regarded ns
l.i Illy, tho heraldic painters hnvo so effoctu-
jully disguised it that it Is now a moro
fcnattor of choice to say what it is. As early
ffis tho year Mil Glvillin (wbo was In thoso
ya considered a cunning finder o*ut of
Mon things) regarded tho device on tho
iJBUourbou flag ns "three toads," nnd it is
jnllrmcd that it was iu allUBlon to thoso sup*

to expectations. The canneries aru
now nil m full operation. Tho uewa
from tho Skeena is not nearly bo encouraging, and tho oatah it is now oxpeeted will fall far below what was anticipated. Mr. Cunningham has, however, already canned 500 cases, which

tin ae days bo a perfect ctuthly paradise, dipt. Robertson has stocked
tlio pasture laud of tho island with
cattle and sheep, besides which ho lins
also set apart a portion of the land for
tho use of a lino hord of pigs, which
aru reported to bo thriving wonderfully woll. The cattlo wero imported
direct from . Manitoba, chosen
from picked atock, and are a
magnificent lot of animals, Capt.

of mou employed for some time in
clearing 150 acres of timber land, and
tho work is nearly finished. As aoon as
this ia burned ovor it will be seeded
with grasa seed, and ib is expected this

Moresby Island in a fow years will

With its it-sue of the 28th, ult., the
Nanaimo morning Courier changed
hands again, for tho third timo, this
timo being delivered from the tender
mercies of tho "Courier Printing and
Publishing Company" into the practised hands of 'Mr. j. J. Whinabnrgor,
a practical printer and newspaperman,
who Bhould be able to furnish tho concern with n now pair of logs. Mr,
Shinahargt-r will lie rumouibored as a
resident of this eity a number of years

mechanical department of Thr Columbian under a former management.
Wo know Mr. Shiunbnrger tu bo no
'prentice hand with tho pen, as woll as
with the "stick nnd rule," and wish
him evory success in his new vonture
—a success which he will richly do* |
nerve if ho succeeds^ iu keeping the
Courier out of tho bone-yard fur six
months oven. For a journal considerably less than a yoar old throe changes
of proprietorship is n littlo ominous.
Wo aro astonished, however, lhat the
Nanaimo morning paper has lived bo
long, as manifestly tho "black diamond city" cannot support tw o daily
papers. It is simply a sacrifice of
good money and a quantity of brains.
Tho newspaper business ia a queer
business anyway. In tho gnat majority of instances newspapers aie run
