COf-mESPONDENCE.
Mr. .nnli Itcpll-*!-.
Editor Columbian—-Sir.*—Mr. Corbould must know that 1:1s account for
service, rendered during his Btny at Victoria was twelve hundred dollars, as I
stated, and that the two hundred nud
fifty dollars ho refers to in his letter yesterday was on account of the same. No
detailed nccount was over rendered for
tho twelve-hundred dollars, nor was it
demanded by the couucil, as it was understood the charge would bo twelve
hundred dollars, and the account was
rendered for thia item in a lump sum
My point was not that Messrs. Corbould
k Vo. had charged too muoh, (I believe
it tho usual charge for tho same work),
but I wished to show that while Mr.
Cunningham rendered valuable services
free (expenses paid), Mr. Corbould got
pay, 1 might also add that I believe the
two hundred and fifty dollars referred to
above wore for actual disbursements and
that the sixty dollars Mr. Cunningham
got were also for actual disbursements,
If my statement was not correct why
did not Mr. Courbould or his frionds refute it at the time. 1 was there to protect
my position?
S, Curtis.
Respectfully,

creditors, liquaidntora and inspectors

structed to finish the contracts on hand.

SERIOUS LOSSES.
Since leaving Victoria Nyanza we
have lost eighteen of the Pasha's people and one native of Zanzibar, who
was killed while we were parleying
with the hostile people.
Every other expedition I have led
has seen the lightening of our labor™
us we draw near the sea, but I cannot
say the tame of this one. Our long
string of hammock-bearers tell a different i ale, and until we place these poor
things on shipboard there will be no
rest for u_.
The worst "f it is-we have not 'the;
privilege of showing at Zanzibar th.
tull extern of our labors. After carrying some ol them 1,000 miles, und

AS Oltl LADY I IES.
One lady seven')- five years of age,
the old mother of Valkiel, died in thi-
manner in North Msulcuma, south of
Victoria Nyanssa. We had as stirring
it limi- for four daya aa wo bad any
whoro
Forth*se fuur days we had con
ttnuous fighting duriug the greater
part of the daylight hours. The foolish natives took an unaccountable
prejudice to the Pasha's people. They
insisted that they were cannibals and
had come to their country for no guod.
Talking to them nras of no use. Any
attempt at disproof drove them into a
white hot rage, and in their mad flinging of themselves on us they suffered.
I am advised that the route to tht
si-a, via Siinba and Mweue is the best
for one thing that especially appears
desirable—the abundance of food.
HIS PROPOSED ROUTE.
I propose to adopt that line. As regards the danger of an attack, this road
seems to me to be aa bad as another.
We have made the unexpected discovery of a considerable extension of
Victoria Nyanza to the -.uuthwest. The
utmost southerly reach of this extension is south latitude 2 degrees 48 minutes, whioh brings tht. Victoria sea
within 155 miles only from Lake Tan*
ganyika. I was so certain in my mind
that this fact was known through
many voyages of the church missionary
Bociety to Uganda that I do not feel
particularly moved by it. Mackay,
however, showed me the latest maps
published hy tho society, and I saw
thnt no one had even suspicion of it.
AREA OF THB LAKE.   '
On the road here I made a rough
sketch of it, and I now find that the
area of the great lake is now increased
by this discovery to 20,900 square
miles, which is just about 1,990 square
miles larger tbau the reputed exaggerations of Captain Speke. If you
will glance at the map of the lake toward the southwest you will find the
coast line turns about northweit and
east-south-cast:, but this coast line so
drawn consists mainly of a series of
large ond mountainous islands, many
of them well peopled, which overlap
ono anuther.
South of theso islands is a large
red.   Lake
in which Stanley, after describing how
he hunted up the missing rear column,
continues: "The rear column was in
a deplorable state, out of 402 members
remaining I doubted if fifty would
live to reach the lake, but having a
large number of canoes, the goods snd
sick men were transported in suoh a
smooth and expeditious manner tbat
there were remarkably few casualties
in the remnant of the rear column, but
tho wild natives, having repeatedly defeated tbe Ugarrowai raiders and hy
this discovered the extent of their own
strength, gave considerable trouble
nnd inflicted considerable loss among
our best men, who had always borne
the brunt of the fight and the fatigue
of paddling.
"When progress by the river became too difficult, the order to cast off
the canoes was given. This was four
days' journey above Ugarrotfa's station, or about 300 miles abovo Banay,
and we decided to try the north bank
of the Itura river, although we would
have to traverse for some days the de*
spoiled land which had been the com*
mon centre for the Ugsrrowas ahd
Kiliougalongas bands of raiders. We
were about 100 miles from the grass
land, whioh opened up a prospect of
future feasts of beef, venl and mutton,
and u pleasing variety of vegetables^
welt as oil and butter for cooking."
Ho tells of tho severe struggles he
had for several days with the Dambut*
ti dwarfs, and many other Hangers encountered by the expedition, and the
tale of alternating privations, plenty
and fighting, is an extremely interesting one.
Stanley tells about a terrible time
with small-pox among the Monemazas.
The mortality was great. On reach*
ing a village called Ondikumu a large
plantation of bananas' and plantains
was found, and after a severe starvation during fourteen days the party
gorged themselves to such excess that
many died and many were incapacitated for some time.

ANOTHER LETTER.
London, Nov. 24.—A letter from
Stanley, dated South End of Viotoria
Nyanza, September 3, says, iu part:
"It is amusing to look back and note
how punishment has fallen on the rebels of the Emm government. Traitors
without tho camp and traitors within
were watched, and the most active
conspirators discovered, tried and
hanged. The traitors without fell
foul of one another, and ruined themselves. Far away our own people,
tempted by ther extreme wretchedness
and misery, sold our rifles and ammunition to our natural enemies, tbe
Monyoma, tho slave traders' true
friends, without the least grace either
of bodies or souls, Since that time
of anxiety and unhappy outlook I havo
been at the point of death from a
dreadful illness. Little by little I
gathered strength, and finally gave orders for the march for home.
'Discovery after discovery in this
wonderful region was made, until at
last we came to a ohurch whose cross
denominated a Christian settlement,
and we knew we had reached tho outskirts of blessed civilization."
Mackinnon, chairman of tbo Emin
relief committee, has alao received a
letter from Stanley, dated August 5,

on flour be made equal to that imposed
by tbe Americans on Canadian flour

In 1
Tin-:  Ottawa  correspondent of a
provincial paper stated   the  other
day that a  deputation   of  British
Oolumbia  salmon   canners, consisting  of   Messrs. W. H. Dempster,
of Victoria, A. Ewon, of this city,
and E. A.   Wadham   and  Thomas
Ladner, of Ladner's Landing, lately
arrived in tho federal capital, would
interview tho minister of   fisheries
and urge the relaxation   of  salmon
fishery regulations in this province.
"They also propose," adds the  correspondent, "to seek   tho  abolition
of the poll tax of $50 on all Chinese
entering   the   Dominion,   on  the
ground that the maintenance of tho
present system   means a decline  in
the falmon packing industry." Without making for  granted   altogether
that the   Ottawa   correspondent in
que. tion knows what  he is talking
a bot t, it will be  worth whilo to in-
quii a whether tho carrying into effect of such a proposal (as the abolition of the $50 Chinese poll   tax),
fron whomsoever emanating, would
be ncivod with favor by the great
majority of tbo people of this  pro*,
vim 3- -who would be most affected |
ther "by—whether, to put  it  more
fore bl y, such  action   would   be in
the 'ifne interests of  the  country.
Wo Ic not think that   there can be
11 ian one answer to these ques-
. The act imposing a $50 poll
a Chinese immigrants, which
" *t of itself operate as an abso-
' -friction, was enacted by the
parliament   in   1885, only
1 ng continued   agitation and

severance  and   importunity

Brit sit Oolumbia, knew   wbat we
were about j and, without  a very
emphatic and  general   declaration
that wo had changed our minds and
now wished tbe llood-gates lifted to
'he yellow horde, any   action or as-
sura-wes to that end by the federal
authorities wonld be a gross outrage
upoi. the country and this province
in   1-articular.   Assuming, for  the
s-tke of argument, that the Ottawa

1 xpe-ii-nce lately, of the few arrogating t) apeak for the many, that will
jrobi.bly govern their  attitude to

it is 10 be feared, by purely selfish
raothes, that august body has put
itself into the "soup" by appealing
to 0;t-iwa for tho enforcement of
cortn-n regulations, supposed to be
in tin-interests of Victoria at tbe
expei tsu of other parts of the  pro-

for this city if he thought that per*
sonago would servo our interests
better than anyone else. We are
right in with our salt water cotemporary in drawing tho lino atthe
dovil; for, we aro assured that,
whatever the promises and professions of the "arch deceiver" might
be, ho would exact heavy toll eventually for any apparent service he
might render in the meantime. In
short, with such a representative,
there would be the devil to pay—
and a lawyer's charge would be nowhere in such a reckoning. The
sonator, however, modified that sentiment considerably, and the World
was not warranted in taking it so
seriously. If Senator Mclnnes'
brief speech at the meeting Saturday night had been reported more
fully (the reason it was not, probably, was because it was the last
one given and did not so immediately concern the question at issue as
some of the others), the World would
have seen that the honorable gentleman concerned himself not only
with the welfare of Westminster
city, but was solicitous for the interests of the entire district which
he represents in the senate, and for
the mainland as a whole. Westminster, of course, occupies the first
place in his affections. But the
World will not blame anyono for
boing partial to the city of his adoption? ,     s
Some one says that fow mon die
of age.   Almost all persons die of
disappointment, personal,   mental,
or  bodily   toil, or  accident.   The
passions kill   men sometimes
suddenly.   The common expression,
"choked   with   passion,"  says  an
authority, has little exaggeration in
it, for oven though   not  suddenly
fatal, strong passions shorten life.
Strong-bodied men often die young
—weak men live longer   than  the
strong,   for  the  strong use  their
strength, and the weak have none
to  use.   The  latter  take  caro of
themselves, the former do not.   As
it is with the body, so it is with tho
mind and temper.   The   strong aro
apt to   break, or, like   the   candle,
run j the weak burn out.   The inferior animals, which live temperate
lives, have generally their prescribed
term of years.   Tho horse lives 25
years, the ox   15   or   20, the  lion
about 20, the hog 10 or 12, the rabbit 8, the guinea pig C or 7.   Tho
numbers all bear proportion to the
time the animal takes to  grow its
full size.    But man, of ull animals,
is ouo that seldom comes up to the
average.   Ho ought to live a hundred years, according to the physiological law, for five   times   twenty
are one hundred;   but   instead  of
that, he scarcely roaches an averago
of four times the  growing   period.
The reason is obvious—man is not
only the most irregular and most intemperate, bnt tho most   laborious
and hard-working  of  all   animals.
He is always the most irritable of
all animals, and there   is   reason to
beliove, though we ennnot tell what
an animal secretly feels, that, more
than any other  animal, man   cherishes wrath to  keep  iti   wurra, and
consumes him.elf   with   the  fire of
his own reflections.

Oin  esteemed  cotemporary the
Vanc-iver WorU worked itsolf up
considerably and  unnecessarily tho
other evening on the  few  remarks
made by Senator Mclnnes  at the
politi'ial meeting on Saturday night.
The   senator  was  speaking  to  a
West-uister audience, and, among
other things, urged upon his hearers
tho is.sportance und  desirability, in
view  of a certain  redistribution of
representation in the near future, of
having their  full voting  strength
properly registered, and  he cited
Vancouver's well known enterprise
in that direotion as a sort of bright
and shining example for emulation.

we do not believe), to wit, that the
large number of tourists  who pass
through Vancouver nre required to

hotel books, but on the voters' lists
as well, were might have been some
excuse for  the   World1!, rather intemperate attack on the sonator in
its issue of Monday.   The World it

Labouchero writes, says an
change, that the Prince of Wales "is
better than he was, but it is an undeniable fact that his health is precarious, and that ho will require to
treat himself moro or less as an invalid, and entirely to change his
manner of life. The prince, having
been thoroughly frightened, is a tolerably docile patient, although 1

In ono of the law courts of Hel-

hypnotism has puzzled the judges,
A young medical student brought
suit against a practicing physician
in the town for having hypnotized
him several times againBt his will,
with the result that his nervous
system was injured and his mind
somewhat enfeebled. Several wit.
nesses appeared for the plaintiff,
and, to the astonishment of the
court, they appeared to be crazy,
and gave the most contradictory
and astounding testimony. Hereupon a medical gentleman oame upon the stand and further astonished
the court with the announcement
that his confrere, the defendant, had
hypnotized the' witnesses and made
them say just whatever he liked.
Finally the court adjourned the
case and appointed a commission to
see if the entire crowd were not
crazy.

FRENCH  PAWNBROKINQ.
This Famous Mont-tie-Pieto of Paris aad
Uow It It Conducted.
Tho Mont-de-Ptete ia a private institution
under State supervision, and its administration, saya the Epoch, is placed under the
control of the HiniBter of tho Interior and
tho Prefect of tho Seine. Tbe director is
appointed by the Minister, and ia assisted
in his duties by a council composed of various
city officials. Besides one general headquarters, there are two large branch offices and
twenty-one smaller ones scattered over the
city. Tho Montrde-Pietc haa no fixed capital,
no endowments and no subsidies, and yet it
doesobusincs3ofover|18,000,0C0ayear.Tbo
way it accomplishes the miracle ia to borrow
with one hand and lend with the other.
It lssuea each year, according to Its needs,
two and ono-half and three per cent, bonds,
and thoy aro considered such good investments that tho company often refuses
offers of capital from persons who wish to
lend. All the reserve fund of tho Comedie
Francalse is placed in theae bonda. Tbe
Government pawnshop accepts as pledge
every thing in the way of personal property
except paper securities, stocks, bonds, etc.
Its smallest loan being sixty conts, it necessarily receives an astonishing variety of
objeota; ono day it accepted the -wooden leg
of a cripple who was hard up.
The frequenters of the Mont-dc-Plete are
composed of all olassea, from the poor devil
for whom the pawnshop la the laat resource
to tho high-born lady of tbe Faubourg Saint
'■crinain, who, in a moment of temporary
deche, sends her jewela to "her aunt" by her
chambermaid. If you look into one of the
branch offlcea you will aee representatives
of all social strata, but lt iaovldont tbat you
will find moro aeomstresses than Duchesses,
und more working-men than bankers. It ia
not only the really poor who avail themselves of tho facility offered by tho Government pawnshops; among tho most frequent
borrowora are tho short-sighted and giddy
pcrhons who raise money for the purpose of
having a lark now and then. Small tradespeople are also good customers, and when
thoy have notes to pay or are in need of
ready money thoy do not hesitate to pledge
their merchaudise---or evon their wife's bcBt
cloak. -'#
Every borrower must prove his identity
by papers, auch as nn elector's card, a rent
bill, tax receipt or aome other kind of official
document. Onco these proofs aro accepted,
the Mont-de-Pitte te not amenable to prosecution for having received stolen property
Tlie loan is mode for one year, but the
pledges are usually kept fourteen montha if
uot redeemed. Tbe borrower can renewhls
loan at tho end of each year aa often aa he
likes by paying the intereat at the rateof
sevon per cent and expenses of storage,
etc. Thero are objeota In tho __fon(-de-l'(et_
which have been renewed year after year
for the paat fifty years, and for which the
interest and expenses havo long ago eaten
up the material value of the gage. These
renewals denote, in moat cases, that the
borrower, or hia descendants, has always
Imd llie secret hopo of redeeming his pawn,
and, whito he has raised enough money to
pay the annual Interest, he baa novor succeeded in amassing enough to recover tha
article.
Tho value of the objects offered for pawn
fs estimated by rommt__afrw*p..__i<.., or official auctioneers and appraisers, a highly
privileged body like tho notaries and stock
brokers. There are eighty of theso appraisers ln Furls, and thoy have charge of all
public sales. Fourteen of these eighty are
specially detailed for the MonUit-Pletc, They
recolvo two por cent, on their valuations
nnd tlireo por cout. on tho sales-all of
which ia paid by tho borrowers; but whon
the articles pledged and unredeemed are
sold, If they do not bring the estimated
price, tho appraisers aro reaponBible for
tho (I Terence. This responsibility makes
thorn i. arcf ul to estimate the article pledged
at u much lower price thou it is really
worth One of the evil consequences of
this imdervulvatlon is to drivo away customary thus compelling them to resort to
the cl: _idcs_ino usurers and Bbarpers, wbo
make largo fortunea by openly trading in
pawn tickets. Hero Is how the matter
worka: A mun in needy circumstances takes
10 tbo Mont-dc-f'tcte an article wlileh he ox*
peels will procure bim a loan, say, of f30.
Tho appraiser offers him 113. Having absolute need of tho other |8, hn carries hia
pawn ticket to a brocantettr, a sorb of broker,
who buys it; but, aa tho borrower does not
wish to part entirely with hia ticket, hoping
somo day to redeem tho object pledged, he
sells it to tha broker a remcrc, that is to say,
with power of redemption. This fictitious
<*alo is mado to get around the law, wliich
-iinhibits.auy ono except tho MnnUdcVietc
to len d upon gage. The broker saya to the
borrower: "I will keep the pawn ticket in
my safe for nine montha; if, at the ond of
that time, you do not buy It back, I -will soli
it." Only, if he sells it baek to its owner,
he adds on 10 or 13 per cent, interest a
month to the sum advanced. It generally
happen™ that, tho poor borrower is unablo to
. buy back his ticket; In which caso the
broker keeps it until the end of the year
and col)**cts the difference on tho article
-when it is scld, or ho redeems the object
from pawn and sells it himself, thereby getting usurious interest on his monoy and
making a profit on tho article.
Theso p-iw-i-ticket brokers have largely
inoronsed in number during tbo paat eight
years, ond ti.-nv there is at least one, and
sometimes more, by the side of or near
overy bram-h offlce of the Mtmt-de-1'icle.
A groat mat;. of them deal in tho articles
thoy redeem from pawn or buy at the
auction Bales. Several of them have their
store-fronts painted in blood-red color, probably aan bj-nbol of the blood thoy suck
from tbo unhappy wretchea who fall into
their hands. The wlndowa of theae brokers
are full of diamonds and other jewels, each
object boing ticketed as having cost so much
but will bo sold bo muoh leas, as it was
bought from the Mont-de-Pitte.
The numbor of loans annually mado oy
the J. hi -.t-._-.__o Ib about 9,600,000; of this
total 800,000 aro productive and tho rest
cause a loss. Thore are no proflta, strictly
speaking, for the concern. Itpoya a fixed
rate of interest for tho monoy it borrows;
I hen tho surplus of lta receipts, after tho,
payment of thia interest and the working
expenses, la handed over to the publio
charity fund. Laat year thla balance waa

ORIGIN OF WOMEN.
ltew-u-kablt. Myths Coneornlng the Tint
of Earth's Angels.
Woman''1 flrat appearance has been a
fruitful subject for the legend mongers,
■■uys the Pull Mall Gazette. The Phenlclan
myth of creation ia found lfl the story of
"Pygmalion and Galatea." Thore tha flrat
woman waa carved by tho flrst man out of
ivory and then endowed with life by Aphrodite. The Greek theory of tho creation
of woman, according to Heaiod, was tbat
Zeno, as a cruel jest, ordered Vulcan to
make woman out of clay, and then Induced
the various gods and goddesses to invest tho
clay doll with all their wont qualities, the
result boing a lovely thing, with a witchery
of nnon, refined croft, eager passion, lovo
of dress, treacherous manners, aud shame*

Tho Scandinavian say that aaOdin, Vill

stick of wood, one of ash and one of elm.
Sitting down, the goda shaped mau and
woman out of those aticka, whittling tho
woman, from the elm and calling her Emin.
One of the strangest stories touching tho
origin of woman la told by tho Madngasea-

I     EARLY TRANSPORTATION.
Tho Chler Means of Conveyance, in th.
: Early Days of tlio West
j In the Magazine of American History is
;anarticlo on "Early Transportation in Uio
West—tho First and Latest Steamer on
Lako Erie," by Mr. D. W. Manchester, secretary of tbe Cleveland Historical Society.
Primitive transportation was crudo ami
laborious. On this point Mr. Manchester
says:
Before tho discovery aud development of
the great mining and lumber industries ot
the West, or the demands of commerce had
rendered possible tho facilities of modern
transportation, tho chief means of conveyance was the birch bark canoe and pony of
tho Indian. The carrying capacity of each
was enormous and something wonderful.
With canoes sometimes six foet wido uud
thirty-five foot long, Bixty packs of furs,
each puck weighing a hundred* pounds; a
thousand poundB of provisions, siifllnent.
fora-crewof eight or ten mon, in addition
to bark and gum for repairs, tho early traveler and explorer tells us was not an unusual loud down tho Groat Lukes to
Quebec mul as fur as Albany. O!
courso transportation in this way
was liecesuiirily slow, because these
canoes were so slight and fragile thnt when
loaded they could not withstand rough
weather, nor approach a rough beach. lit
tho lattor event, freight and canoo wero
"hacked" around a portage, reloaded and
the journey resumed. A vory convenient
and useful trading boat was the Mackinaw
bateau. It was built of oak or pino boitrds,
had fiat bottoms, shaped tho samo at each
end and hud high sides. Tho pirougo was a
long canoo l'i-. ijuontly mado of a largo red
codar trco with high sides and ondo, and
was used mainly for passengers, carrying
about eight persons. A canoo in common
uso was culled a "dug-out," because it wuh
mado by chopping, digging and burning out
tho trunkof a tree. Home of the trees were
enormous aud capacious, but it required
great skill and experience to successfully
manage a canoe thus constructed, a slight
lateral motion or unsteady position being
sufficient to capsize it. Littlo wonder that
the Indian was erect and "straight as an
arrow." Ho spent much of his time, too, iu
tho midst ot tall, straight trees.
In hiB famous expedition to tho upper
lakes ln 1830, Governor Cass employed canoes for transportation. This expedition,
nt tho timo it was mado, was tho most important, taken in all, that had over been undertaken with the sanction and authority of
tho general Government. Tho objects primarily were an examination iuto tho condition of the Indian tribes who occupied
that country, nnd to procure tho extinction
of Indian titles to tho land about tho Bt rails
of St. Mary's, Prairie du Chien and Green
Bay and to open up communication between
the two latter points. Tho expedition
also bad in contemplation a thorough
and scientific examination of tho copper region In tho vlciuity of Lake Superior.
Much has beon heard of this section through
Iiultinsnnd half-breeds,who said a largo
muss of virgin ore, weighing several tons,
hud fallen from a hill; specimens hnd boon
Bent to Washington, and in 1800 Mr. Tracy,
a Senator from Connecticut, hnd been dispatched to make an examination, but ho
proceeded no further than Mackinaw.
Governor Cass also intimated that it would
bo well to consider the natural history of
tho country through which tho expedition
would pass, and accordingly made a request
that tho Government sond some porson who
was acquainted with zoology, botany and
mineralogy. For the latter position, tho expedition was fortunate in having Henry It.
Schoolcraft, sinco of wide celebrity and
greatness in many respects, especially as
an author, and deservedly ao as the writer
on ethnological researches respecting the
Indians of North America. Other prominent members of tho party, oosides Govornor Cass, wero Captain D. IJ. Douglass,
professor of engineering ut West Point;
Alexander Woicot, M. D.; Lieutenant Evans
Mackey, U. S. artillery; Jamos Doty, official
secretary, and Charles Trowbridge, assistant topographer. Thero wero also ten
United States soldiers aa escort, ton Indians
to act as hunters, two interpreters uud ten
Canadian voyagoura to manage tbe canoes.
Forty-cue inall In four birch-bark canoes.
Thoy reached Mackinaw ia fourteen duys, a
distanco ot threo hundred aud sixty miles
from Detroit, tho starting point, which
thoy loft tho 24th of May. General Cass
reached tbls place on hia return tbo 10th of
September following, having, traveled almost entirely by canoo over four thousand
miles.
In oarly timca in tbo West the horso nlso
played a prominent part in tho transportation of persona and freight. Tho French
or Indian pony was indispensable to tho
fur-trader aud Indian in getting their fms
and peltries to points whero tboy could be
transported to canoes or bateaux, and the
immense toad of buffalo and other skins
that these small animals would carry is
astonishing. They woro very hardy, and
huvo been known to travel under the saddle
sixty to seventy miles a day for many successive days. Itisnotquitocloarwhen the
larger, modern horses wero first used in
tbo West, but they aro reported to havo
been brought from Fort Duquesno to Detroit immediately following tbo defeat of
General Braddock, in 1755, but it is probable that tlioy wore there muoh earlier, n.
Cadillac, who founded Detroit in July, KOI,
without doubt hod them, and in a grant of
laud from blm to Joseph Parent, ln 1708,
there was a condition that tho latter was to
keep Cadillac's horses shod. They were,
however, not plenty, and often thoro waa
only one horse for two or threo persons, in
whieh caso tbo "rido and tic" method was
adopted in journeying—whioh was that
one person would ride a fow miles, wbon
he would dismount, tie tho horse and proceed on foot. Tho nextone who came along
would tako tho bono, rido on ahead of tiio
Bnt and tlo the horse. This rested both
man and beast and fairly good progress
was made. Journeys on horseback were
frequently made from Detroit to New York
and Washington. Major Biddlo, a Territorial doleguto to tbe latter place, wont on
horseback, traveling upwards of nino hundred milea in that way.
tho race of moar
Tho American Indians'myths relative to
Adam and Evo are numerous and entertaining. Somo traditions trace baok our first
parents to whito and red Matzo; another ti
thnt man, searching for a wife, was given
the daughter of tbo king of tho musk-rats,
who, oa being dipped into ft neighboring
lake,'became a woman,
Uow Real Poets and <__nu.no literary
Mon Do Not Write*
Some of our would-be literary peoplo of
both soxea inisuso tho dictionary most
abominably, saya tho New York Ledger.
Even tbe reporters of aome of our daily pa*
pera have adopted the grandiose stylo of
writing, and a pretty mess thoy mako of It.
Whon shall wo get back to the well of English umlcfilcd, and bo relieved from the
muddy mixture of incongruous worda with
which tho alinploBt facts are boplastcred I
As to our f ugltivo poetry, muoh of it is
absolutely Incomprehensible to ordinary
minds. Itseems tohavo been written by
individuals in hysterics. Ono "fino writer"
oftho feminine gender tolls ua thut when
woman "girds on her genius-armor," aud
plungea into tho "world-wido arona of intellect," sho does so at a "fearful sacrifice."
Wo wish aho wouldn't, forthe sacrifice iu
these cases la tho timo of the reader. Another lady informs us that the bosom ot a
poetess "heaves with exulting joy, and hor
cyo burns with heavenly fire." Thla ia n
mistake. Persons wbo write suoh poetry
as rational beings can read without a sensation of nausea, sit quietly at their desks
or tables whilo they do it.
Wo know this to be the caso, for wo huvo
aeen several real poets la the very act.
They did not ruffle their hair, their eyes
looked perfectly natural, and they exhibited
no aymptoma of violent palpitation of tho
heart, Depend upon lt that roal poota never

An amusing instance of the intense
interest taken in the lato election by
tho junior members of tho community
was given lust night at the serenade to
tho victorious candidate. When tho
procession was getting ready to march
from Cunningham & Co.'s storo it
sij.aU buy picked up n torch and mado
himself busy getting tho businesa end
of it ready for ignition, another boy
who hnd failed to get a torch, pounced
on small boy number one, with the
remark, "here, yuu drop that, it's
mino." Theustoni-hud urchin looked
up indignantly aud said, "taint* neither, who did you voto fur." "My
father voted for Cuunin'ham, who did
yours vote fur?" "It's none o' your
dashed business, this torch is mine
and I'm going to keep it." Tho turgor
boy made ready for a scrimmage and
B.dling up to the other, hissed, "You're
a Corbould man," The victim uf the
slandor yelled, "and you'ro a liar."
"What's that?" said tho other threateningly, "sny that again, will yer, only
once!" Just then tho marshal of tho
procession shouted, "fall in," and tho
boys swallowed their rising ire, nnd
the small boy marched o(T flinging tho
taunt at his adversary, "'Ray fur Cuunin'ham."

Children Cry For Pltcher'sCastorla
POLICE COURT.
(Before T. C. Atkinson, P. M.)
Tho first case was that of Thos. W.
liowney, urresfed on a bench warrant
for contempt of oourt in failing to answer a summons to appear on a charge
of disturbing a religious meeting.
Prisoner pleaded guilty, and snid he
had beeu so drunk he did not realize
what he was doing. His honor said
that was a very sorry excuse to mak..
Prisoner Baid he had been having u
tooth pulled and he took a glass of
brandy to kill tho pain, and that started him oft'. His lienor said drunkenness was no excuao now-n-rlays, it used
to be a palliation, hut things had
changed considerably, and it was now
looked upon ns an aggravation of un
olli-ncc.
Chief of police aaid that after the
oflicers had put prisoner out on Sunday
niglit ho went back again and acted as
badly as before.
The prisoner said ho had been attracted by the music nnd good singing,
and besides had nn invitation to go
thero. A fino of §20 and costs, or in
default one mouth's imprisonment nt
hard labor wub imposed.
Tho second chargo against Rownoy
was fnr having used obscene, blasphemous and insulting language at tho
aamo meeting. Prisoner pleaded guilty,
and his honor said he would punish to
the fullest extent of tho law anyone
who entered a religious edifice and disturbed meeting"! therein. The prisoner
wished to bo excused on tho ploa that
it wna election day when tho offence
wns committed. Hia honor hoped
prisoner hud enst his vote properly.
Wellington Millor, of the Salvation
Army, laid tho charge against prisoner
for using obscene and insulting language, and testified to that effect,
Tlio prisoner waa vory impertinent in
court to tho magistrate.
Chiof of police naked that the full
power of the bylaw bo onfurced in
this case; there were far too many
cases of ''hoodlomism" of late, nnd
tlicy might to be checked.
Prisoner interjected, "Six months,
ch? B'pose I'll get my bonrd, nny way."
Witness Miter detailed the lauguago
used and it was bad enough to warrant
what tho chief asked.
Prisoner broke down and cried; ho
said the witness hud a spite againat
him, und had promised "to put a head
on him." Prisoner had been drinkint.
nnd fronting nil day. Fined 850 nnd
costs; in default of payment forthwith
two mouths at hard labor.
On the third charge, that of disobeying tho summons of the oourt,
Jtnwney had nothing to say, and wns
fiiied $25 and coats; in default, uno
month's imprisonment nt hard labor.
Tho fines aggregated 805 and tho sentences four montha. Prisoner said he
would pay the tines, and seemed to
have a dread of confinement.
George Chatterton, charged with
having been drunk and incapable.
Prisoner explained to the magistrate
his views as to incapability, grently to
thn letter's amusement. Incapability,
in tho prisoner's code of legal jurisprudence, consisted of lying in tho
"gooter" (he is a Yorkshire man) unable to get'up; ho it seams had capability enough to stagger into the conrt
house and give a good deal of insolence
to Mr. Falding. Tho chief of police
said a man might bo able to enter n
building, but often had to be carried
out,
Mr. Falding, who was called, said
the prisoner was abusive, and hud to
be put out.
Prisoner threw tho court into audible smiles by saying to his worship,
"Weel, yer wushup. aw thenk yaun
tnaunt's weel lotion then case slide."
His honor declined to do this and imposed tho usual fine and costs.
COMMENDABLE,
All claims not consistent with tho high
character of Syrup of Figs are purposely
avoided by the Cal, Fig Syrup Company.
Tt acts gently on tho kidneys, liver and
bowels, cleansing the system effectually,
but it Is not a cure-all nnd makes no
pretens'.ons tliat overy bottlo will not

Tho friends and supporters of Mr,
T. Cunningham, M.P.P., determined
yesterday to givo him a serenade in
tho evening, and this they carried
out in good style. Mr. Cunningham
received notification of tho intention
of his constituents and made arrangements t:i receive them at the residence
of his brother, Mr. Jas. Cunningham,
on Agnos streot.
Tho house and grounds were beautifully illuminated with OhiiifiBO lanterns, producing it very charming-
effect, and refreshments were prepared
against tho arrival of tliu procession.
The BDi-onadors formed column ut li.
M. Cunningham & Co.'a store on Columbia street, aud torches weru supplied to a great crowd of men and boys,
Tlto city brass band struck up au on-
livening march and thu whole purty,
four deep, stepped off up Columbia
street. Along tho lino of march cheers
wore given for Mr. Cunningham, with
hero and there a cry for Corbould, nnd
a desultory shout of "Hats!" from
one of the defeated pnrty. Turning
up Mary Btreet, the procession arrived
nt Agnes street and tuok temporary
possession of tho north sidewalk.
Then lho baud, which had been drawing its htenth up tho hill, took their
instruments and struck up another
quickstep and advanced tu the scene of
operations. Arrivod nt tho Cunningham mansion, tho gathering wna welcomed by Mr. Jas. Cunningham, who
said ho wns happy to meet such a gallant company, and wns sorry tho
wonther was ao inauspicious, but hoped
it would bo better next time. Ho
would not detain them with a lengthy
harangue, ns thoro wero other speakers
to address them.
Mr. A. Duncan introduced Mr.
Thomas Cunningham and called for
three cheers for thut gentleman. Theso
were given in rousing stylo, nnd a tiger
thrown in. Mr. Cunningham Bteppnd
forward to the front uf tho piazza and
said he wished to tender his most sincere thanks to his friends who had assembled to do hiin honor. Tho reception was quite n surprise to him, as he
had received no intimation whatever of
it beforo 5 o'clock that evening. Ho
felt their kindness doeply nnd thanked
them for it.
Now that tho election was over, ho
was happy to ray that not one dollur of
"boodle" wus spent to gain it; not une.
He never wished n dollar of "boodle"
ro back him in any contest, but squaro,
honest, straightforward dealings and
merit tu win tho day. Thero hud been
some sever** things said and written
nbout him, but ho was happy io bear
testimony to tho fact that Tin: Columbian bud set his notions iii a clear, unbiased, neutral light that evening in
regard to the parado of thoso three
mountebanks hist Muiul iy. He had
had nothing whatever to do with that
circus performance [laughter], and ho
had told the chief of police to have it
stopped at once, when he came toknow
of it,
Thu eleotion had been won after a
hard light by tho hard-working men—
tho honest toilers. [Great cheering.]
Tho "horny-handed sons ot toil" he
was proud of it; ho was proud he was
ono of them, a horny-handed,hardworking man liko themselves. [Applause.] The morning paper, Truth,
had como out with a mean sneer that
murning about "it horny-handed fruitgrower having won the plum." "But,
gentlemen, they have uot gained much
by that, and they will find it out boforo long. Another chargo made
against me in thnt sheet waa that I
once declared my intention of becoming nn American citizen. Welt, let
me ask you, who is duing suoh hard
work for civilization in Central Africa
to-day ? Who is it that is threading
his way through tho almost impenetrable jungles of equatorial Africa at
the risk of his life, but for tho good of
humanity? Henry M. Stanley.
[Cheers,] A man who declared his intention and thought it no dishonor tn
becomo n citizen of the great republic."
A civic chair had been offered the
speaker in Oregon if he wuuld take tho
oath of allegiance to the United States,
but no, he did not then and he never
wuuld [Great cheering and applause.]
Ho snid lie ought to bo the proudest
man in British Columbia, becauso the
strong independent peoplo of Westminster had placed him whero ho wns.
If lie did not servo them aright in the
legislative assembly, if ho neglected his
duty, tho remedy lay in their own
hands; they had elevated nnd they
oould depose hiin from that proud position} but, God helping him, ho intended to do his very best for Westminster, [Prolonged cheers.] There
was one other matter that ho muat set
right, and that wna the slanderous renin rl;.. about him having been elected
by the Methodist church. That chargo
was wickedly false; it w is a malicious
■■lander. He cuuld prove that hiB sup-
porters belonged to all denominations,
as Catholics, Protestants and agnostics
had nil voted for him. Ho would be
sorry lo sec tho day when religion and
politics ahould commingle; it would be
a bad thing.
As for Mr. Purdy, that gentleman
hud mndo nu unfortunate mistake in
confounding Mrs. Trew with another
persuti altogether, Mr. Purdy had no
intention of doing harm or injury to
anyone whatever. Ho begged to
return his I hanks to tho press, nnd especially tu The Columbian, Ho felt
bound to acknowledge with thanks the
strict neutrality that journal had preserved, ,in'd fur ita fair and impartial
verdicts. Ab fur tlio other paper, ho
had nothing to say but that 'it had his
entire forgiveness, and he hoped it
would survive long enough to learn
how much better it is to run au election by straight and manly methods
than by the system it has pursued. He
would also extend his warmest thanks
to the gentlemen of his committoe;
they had worked nobly. At the conclusion of Mr. Cunningham's speech,
tho groat multitude in front of the
house indulged iu rounds of deafening
applause and cheers tor the speaker.
Mr, A. Duncan next spoko and
said he was glad the election had been
won by such fair and honorable means,
Thero had beeu no cliques or rings and
no dastardly slanders. Mr. Cunning-
hum was just the man the city wanted,
and he for one hud done his best to
get him there.
Mr. John Reid wns hailed with applause and snid it wns' n subject fur
gratulatiou that this eleotion had been
won by no underhand means, The
other side had monopolized all that
kind of thing, although Mr. Corbould
had acted like a gentleman, ns
tie always did. The policy of
Truth had beon characteristically
crooked from -the beginning, and to
sny tho least was down right dishonorable. It had shown no manliness and
hod excited only disgust by its uttnok
un Mr. Cunningham in reference to
the Methodist churoh. Mr. Reid said
that Mr. Cunningham had done splendid and invaluable service for the
Agricultural Society and the thanks of
all the oitizens was due him.
Mr. Oherry spoke briefly and gave
his opinions on tho Grocr case and the
Mechanics' Lien law, und advocated
(ho adoption of tho system which compels n contractor to lodge securities before he takes a contract, so that the
workmen are suro of getting their
hard-earned money. This proposition
was hailed with cheers by the meeting.
Aftor three cheers for tho new M.P.P,
and hts committee, Mr. Jas. Cunningham invited nil t. como in and partake
of refreshment; the invitation was accepted by nearly the entire assemblage.
The festivities cumo to a close by the
rendition uf great cheers, and the baud
and tho torch bearers marched homo,
while the crowd dispersed its various
ways to homo.
