A terrible and peculiar drowning accident occurred yestorday, by which a

throwing herself into the icy water,
she endeavored to save her drowning
boy. In 11 few minutes alio wkb beyond her depth aud drowning herself.
Hor fifteen yenr old daughter, "Augusta, heard her cries, and hastened to
tho spot. Seeing her mother in the
water sho rushed to her rescue. The
ico broke with her and she wns thrown
into the chilling torrent. Mother and
daughter locked themselves together
in a death struggle and sink beneath
tho wator nnd ico. They were juat
disappearing when a 4-year-old sou of
Mrs. Augustine, who had been with
his sister, toddled out ou tho ice with
plaintive cries of ''Mamma, mamma, I
want you." He run over the ice until
lie roached the hole in which his mother, sister and brother were butiod.
The little fellow saw his mother und
slater sink, nud threw himself, ns he
supposed into his mother's arms. In
an instant he was carried beneath the
ico. A man named Christian Neissen
saw the tragedy, but was powerless to
render any aid. Ho was on rotten ice
and broke in several times before he
reached tho spot where the family bad
perished. When 1 he finally got
there, they had disappeared. The

FOUND AT LAST.
San Francisco, Dec. ll.~Profe3S-
or E. E. Barnard, of Lick observatory,
gives information of a romarkablo theoretical discovery in cometary astronomy made by ur, S. C. Chandler i-f
C.uiit.ridiii\ Upon investigating some
peculiarities iu the orbit of the comet
discovered last July by Mr. Brooks,
aud which ia still under observation
by Mr, Chandler, ho found that it
had made a remarkably close approach
to tho planet Jupiter in 1880, and that
its path had then biton entirely
changed, the comet being thrown into
its present small eclipso, with a period
of seven years. Stimulated by this to
lind out what tho path oftho comet
was previous tu 188fi, he was led to the
discovery that it wns identical with the
famtma Tcxell's "Inst comet," of 1770.

The Cily Audit.
Editor Columbian—Sir: The grunt
in this morning's Truth over the signature of "Citizen" betraya the fact that
the writer hai little or no idea of business. If the present council had ex*
ponded half of the year's revenue in
wasto or had concocted and carried out
the most gigantio boodle schemes, the
auditor is not the man expected to nn*
earth them j his duty is to audit the books
and see that all monies are accounted for,
and that all payments have been made
upon the warrant of the mayor and city
clerk; just how many yards of dirt have
been removed or how much lumber has
beeu supplied for the money paid, or how
many wheclbarrowi or how much powder
has been actually received, the auditor
has no means of finding out, except from
the accounts vouched aa correct. The
desire to expend the citizens' money
judiciously and in onr own oity muit
have left the mind of "Citizen" when he
suggests going to the capital city for an
auditor. Capt, Robinson is a good ao*
countant, bat hii services are not to be
had, and tho fact that Mr. Walker haa
discharged the duties of auditor for four
years and was appointed each year by
the outgoing council, would appear suf*
floiont reason why he should again be
appointed, lot alone tho fact that Be Is a
contributor to the city revenue. Yours
truly,     Veritas.
The ObMxIsas Order.
Col. Prior, M.P., left for Ottawa
thii morning for the purpose, 10 it ii
understood, of interviewing the ministry concerning the recent obnoxious
order-in -council in reference to Amer*
erican steamers. With gross discourt*
os*/ the minister of customs has uot
deigned to answer either the letters or
telegrams sent to him by the board of
trade, requesting tbat the order be
rescinded, and from the oonduct of the
government generally, it has become
apparent that they havo little intention
of complying with tho request. It is
believed, therefore, that if the government can be induced to change ill
course towards a city which has served
it ao well, that Mr. Prior will accomplish it. Otherwise the friends of tbe
city members say, that Meun. E. G.
Prior and Thomas Earle will be found
in opposition to the government next
session. The order is considered to be
so unmistikable and undisguised an if*
fort to injure Victoria that if no other
reason than personal protection thev
could not support the ministry which
supported it.—il'ednenlaij's Times.

AN OPIUM REFINERY.
tie er WestaoJMter-s Indatfrles Tltdlei
hy a Cftl-unhhw Me-Mrtcr.
A Columbian reporter strolled into
the large Chineso gooda house of
Kwong On Wo & Co, this morning on
purpoio reportoriul, and with his inquisitive nose tickled by tho fumes of
something that smelt like opium. Tho
polite gentleman wbo superintends
the store, immediately advanced trom
behind the counter and asked in English what the distinguished visitor
would like to have; the visitor replied
in what he thought first-class Pekin
patois, that ho would like to see the
opium preparing process. But tho reporter's rt-tined Chinese failed to make
itself cleir to the native, bo he broke
into quick time with every dny English und was at once asked to fdlow
his guide to the place whero tho mysteries of opium preparutimi uro conducted.
There never ii mon than six foet of
straight passage in a Ohinese house;
they seem to love tortuous, winding,
serpentine labyrinths that curve and
twist and wriggle like a wounded snake.
The establishment of an opium dealer
is no exception. At length the room
was reuehed, somewhere in the bowels
of the earth, and with leas daylight
than gloom. The odor of opium wu
almost overpowering,und the reporter,
looking, saw two strange wild figures
with bare heads, arms and feet, moving about in the glare.of six big charcoal fins. These men were dressed in
loose brown suits and seemed very
busy. Thore was a smack of Faust
about the whole thing, and had the reporter not known that he had imbibed
nothing stronger than coffee that
morning he might have been inclined
to believe that it was Mephistopheles
and his shadow that stole about among
tho gleaming brass pans and caldrons.
Resting over each fire waB a huge brass
basin, or caldron, filled to within a
few inohes of the brim with a dull
black liquid, not unlike pitch, and
which seethed aud foamed and bubbled
with the heat. From those receptacles
arose a thick vapor, which, diffusing
itself about the room, brought to one's
nobtrila the heavy intoxicating odor of
opium. Atthe leftside cf the range
of fires was one screened off from the
others, and on it rested a largo caldron
filled liko the others with a black, bubbling decoction, but ouo could ace, although uninitiated, that it was in a
more advanced state of preparation than
the othen. One of the attendants was
busy removing a rich brown scum that
came thickly on the surface; for thla
purposo he used the outside feather of
a goose pinion, Tho reporter's conduct*
or informed him tbat iu that basin
bubbled two hundred and twenty five
dollars' worth of opium, nearly ready
for exportation. It waa gleaned thnt-
the poppy leaves are first of all grown
in India, and from thenco sent to
China, packed in curious littlo
round bales, not unlike Dutch
cheeies, and exported to British Col*
urabia. lt is about a year since tho
opium preparing process was begun in
Westminster, and itis increasing at
an enormous nte.   The license is five
L«JH--*.1I.Mr„MH..HI| but, will--
pared with the profits of the trade,
that is the veriest trifle. No drug or
article of commerce returns such enormous profits, although its production,
preparation and sale are attended with
great risks. Tho opium when being
prepared goes through many processes:
the leaves are first of all separated and
steeped, then they go into tho fint
day caldron and are boiled for
twenty-four houn. Next day they
go iuto the second-day caldron
and boil for twenty-four houn again;
the third day they havo reached a
state of complote amalgamation, and
the substance resembles a thick, syrupy
liquor, of a rich, deep, Vandyke brown.
It is then taken from the final
caldron and allowed to get cold, then
it is cut into slabs, pressed into plugs
and wrapped up and labelled, and it is
then ready for export and sale. The
reporter oould uot help noticing the
beauty of finish of tho brass utensils;
tho huge basins were exquisite in form
and finish, although severely Grecian,
one might say, in simplicity. On several of the smaller receptacles somo
specimens in Chinese carving of extraordinary beauty were observed and
in the designs, which were truly oriental, all the subtle intricacies of the Mon*
golian artists fancy were seen. Ontnm*
ing to leave, the reportertook the liberty of remarking to himself if Mr. Henry
Irving oould only havo been so lucky
aa to get a glimpse at this strange workshop he might have gained some valuable hints for his great witches' scene
in Macbeth; tho scene was truly weird
and calculated to inspire uncomfortable -
fancies in the mind of the timid or im*
sginstive. Thero is more in Westminster than is reckoned for in tho
average citizen's philosophy. It may
be noted that very heavy consignments
of the drug are sent acrou tho line.
British Colambla aalmoa,
Tho London, Eng., Grocer of 23rd
November, contains the following satisfactory reference to Fraser and
Skeena river salmon: "There is not
muoh doing in salmon, as the supply
at the moment is of an indifferent
character, and few salos uf importance
have occurred. We have, however,
seen samples of tho early shipments of
Fraser and Skeena river fish from
British Columbia, and, after a close
examination, muit pronounce them as
highly satisfactory. Not only ii the
fish firm, but it is also of good color
and fat, and fai superior to what has
been shown here for yean past. Great
can seems to have bceu taken fn
packing the salmon this season, and
the wholesale houses are of opinion
that after the poor, rubbish, and
slovenly-prepared stuff that has so long
been put upon the London market, it
is a treat to find 10 unmistakable an
improvement in the quality, condition,
and outturn in the Skeena and Fruer
river fish as is now witnessed in the
flrst arrivali of thii year's paok. For
thii reason Columbia rfvor salmon it
likely to sink in the estimation of con-
lumen while it rules at extravagantly
high rates, and if it is to retain a firm
hold upon the market it oan only do ao
by being made available at muoh lower
pricei,"

Tiik Knights of Labor, at  their
recent convention at Atlanta, Geor.
gia, have wisely decided not to adopt
extreme measures in their efforts to
reduce  tlio, working   dny to eight
hours.   Genernl   Master Powderly,
by the way, a very intelligent, judicious,   and  fair-min dud   man, nnd
thus eminently qualified for the important  and   powerful   position lio
holds, snid, on the ono hand, that he
did not advocate reduction of the
hours of toil as the cure-all and tho
end of the struggle of tho order, but
merely as a means to nn end.   On
the other hand, ho declared that he
was not hostile to tbe idea of an
eight-hour day.   It was his deep
concern in tbe movement, ho said,
which prevented   him from sanctioning what he regarded as unwise
or foolhardy methods   in hastening
it.   Ho suggested  that  tho order
should endeavor to bring about a reduction of the hours of labor in so
gradual a way as not  to disarrange
business or in any way work hardship to either side  in  the  contra
vorsy.   Ono plan which he recommended contemplated the reduction
of the working day by half an hour
each year until the eight-hour limit
should bo reached.    With the K. of
L.  the   American   Federation  of
Labor appears nlso to ayree.   At
their convention   tho   Knights  received a communication  from  the
president of the Federation stating
that they were opposed to a general
strike in tho interests of the eight-
hour movement, but would endeavor
to introduce  tho   movement in certain trades   where   the  conditions
wero favoruble. The Knights passed
resolutions   "declaring   thut   they
coincided with tho view of the Federation men, that no genoral striko
should   be inaugurated  on May 1,
1890, but that the movement should
be confined to such trades as are in
condition to put the plan in operation on that date, and culling upon
the president of tho Federation to
indicate tho trades organized within
that association which nre prepared
to successfully inaugurate the eight-
hour movement on   tho  dato  indicated, promising that the Knights
will give their moral support to tho
movement uy hots-jit irmies."   Tim
decision on the part of the  leaders
of organized labor, we agreo with u
cotemporary, is a very wise one.   In
fact, tho spirit of wise forbearance,
the recognition of   tlie   mutual dependence of inbor and   capita], displayed   in   the   pronouncements of
tho great labor organizations above
on tho eight-hour movement, might
welt be emulated by all such bodies,
whether large or small, and would
result in   their  greater  usefulness
and  power  for  good.   Too  often
trades unions and   labor  organizations have, iu un injudicious antl unreasoning haste to secure some coveted advantage, overlooked all circumstances that should have modified their demands, disregarded tho
promptings of u wise moderation,
and   either, figuratively  speaking,
shattered their heads against a stone
wall, that might have  been, moro
slowly, but successfully scaled, or
brought the whole structure down
in ruins about thoir ears, involving
themselves in the devastation which
their unwise precipitation had induced.   If the bird, capital, which
lays the golden ogg of steady and
constant remuneration for labor performed bus not   ofton   been  killed
outright, it has in many instances
boen slowly but surely strangled to
death by inconsiderate attempts to
squeeze it too hard for its golden
fruit.   Of courso, tho abuse is not
all on ono sido, for sometimes the
bird in quostion gobbles everything
within reach and never "lays" anything except when absolutely compelled to.   Labor organizations and
trades   unions, on   the   whole, aro
bonelicont   nnd   necessary   institutions, and it is gratifying to note
that in somo measure   they aro bo-
ginning to appreciate thoir truo relation to industry and capital and
are prepared to act intelligently and
considerately accordingly.
pansb of almost land-locked water is
Milford Haven, having plonty of
water, sO thut the biggest ships can
make their docks at all stages of tlio
tide. It has now a graving dock
700 feet long, with expansive wet
docks, where small fleets may lie, and
a railroad, tlio Great Western, tlie now
line having beeu recently completed
and coming down to tho docks, so
that whon tho passengers land they
have but to step aboard a train and
go on without change to London,
thus escaping the delay and confusion of transfer to a tender to
reach the docks, ns at Liverpool.
To London from Milford Haven via
tho Severn tunnel is 105 miles,
against 201 from Liverpool, it being
U hours longer by rail; tho rato of
speed being 4G miles an hour, including stops, tho new lino through
South Wales passing through a
charming region, Milford Haven as
a town is scarcely more than a pastoral Welsh town, and is not likely to
perceptibly detract from tho trade of
Liverpool, which has thriving Manchester, the bustling Yorkshire
towns and the rich midlands at its
back. Yet, if appearances go for
anything, Milford Haven has a great
future beforo it. Even without the
adjunct of Fort Pond Buy, it insures
the saving of quite half a day under
ordinary conditions of weather in
the real if not in the apparent transatlantic passage; the ollicial timo of
oast-bound steamers stops at Brow
Head under the present system of
running . and if tho project of making a western terminus at the eastern end of Long Island should be
put through, it will, it is claimed,
shorten the ocean trip by n full 24
hours.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Railroad men havo a superstitious
dread of any expression of pride
over the absonco of accidents on
their road. Tiio writer of this once
congratulated a prominent manager
of a well-known line upon its freedom from loss of life, "Don't," ho
replied, "To-morrow may reverse
tlie record,"—Ex,
Russia is afflicted with an cpi
demic of influenza. Everybody in
St, Petersburg from the czar down
is sneezing, and thu worst feature of
it all is, that although the czar's
sneezing may knock off one of tho
most powerful crowns in Europe, it
is just as ticklish and abominable as
that of any peasant of tho steppes.
Thero is a wholo sermon in tbe
following item, for young girls. "A
young lady of Augusta, Me,, lias received a bill amounting to over $100,
from Poter Olark of Now York;
and in it sho is charged with twenty-
two yards of silk dress goods, two
gold bracelets, one diamond rin**, a
hat and several other items. Olark
was rejected a suitor of tho lady and
claims tho above named articles
were presents from him."
Aro womon moro charitable than
men? The London street Bweopers
aun'u tiitiiK so. Ono of thom on
being asked his opinion replied that
it was no uso asking ladies fora
gratuity • thoy never did and nevor
would givo a poor man anything.
Another suid that n lady occasionally gavo him a penny when her
purse was handy. And still nnothor
said that he never heard of a lady
ovon noticing a poor sweoper.—J'Jx.
The failure of the Panama canal
seems to havo been duo to bad management quito as much as to the inherent difficulties of the undertaking, observes nn exchange. The
Nicaragua canal so far has been
managed with system and economy
by experienced business men. The
contrast is striking. Everything,
apparently, has been foreseen and
prepared for, machinery, material,
shelter and transportation, and tho
work will go right on without a halt
till it is done.
TilE steamer Oity of Rome, on
her last trip out, notes an eastern
exchange, made tho port of Milford
Haven instead of Liverpool, the
magnificent system of docks, long
under construction at that port,
having been at last completed, at an
expense, of $5,000,000, The completion of these docks at Milford
Haven is an important event, marking as it does the first practical step
in tho development of tho project
to join Fort Pond Bay, at the eastern extremity of Long Island, with
tho nearest harbor on the British
coast for ships out of New York,
The substitution of Milford Haven
for Liverpool as a terminus saves
Iho delay of steaming up St, George's
Cha nn eland upthe Mersey, and, more
important yet, avoids tho dangers of
the channel fogs mid the annoying
delays of the Mersey bar. So substantial Is the gain that it is likely,
indeed the builders of the Milford
docks have, it is but reasonable to
suppose, some assurance, that other
great lines will follow the Anchor line
and /omke Liverpool   A great ex-
A writor in tho Christian Union
says that the multiplication of books
will mako the adoption of some stenographic system of printing books* a
necessity, and then what is now a
bulky quarto will be a small pamphlet of a fow pages. Rut a bottor
way out of the difficulty would bo
not to print so many books. And
it will como to that in tho ond, for
readers will simply rofuso to read
nny but a few choice works. Wo
somotimes thoughtlessly plumo ourselves on the fact that wo are omnivorous readers. But when we become more genuinely cultivated wo
will ceaso to bo omnivorous, and become eclectic. And the reform of
tho futuro will movo in this direction
rather than toward some improved
phonetic system that would mako
tho reading of trash even easier than
it is now.
Oanada seems to bo in favor with
tho spooks just now, one of theso
unearthly visitors having performed
in Pontine county, another has appeared in St. John, N. B„ and a
third in < lananoque. The Pontine
spook was taken in hand by tho
people, romonstrated with, converted, und sent back to the unseen
world in the odor of Banotity. Its
visit to Oanada has done it good.
Away in St. John attempts havo
been mado to exorcise the ghost -
but unhappily a controversy has
arisen as to tho language in whicli
the spirit should be addressed. A
writer to one of tho papers claims
that ghosts will listen to no arguments oxcept such ab are uttered in
Latin. This seems reasonable, because Latin is a dead language.
The Gananoque people should look
up their Latin if they wish to bo

gland is lull of fuilures, both men und
women, who hnvo failed from luck of this
vory quality. Thnt women should fail is
only to bo expected, for they havo enjoyed
no urtv.iutugcs of training or Bpeoial education as men have. It is almost impossiblo
to got a good governess who combines with
the talent of teaching the no less important
faculty of moral training. Tho great mass
of nursery governesses and companions nro
absolutely inefficient, these two occupations
boing only resorted to by thoso who uvo
quito Incompeteut to follow any othor.
It Is almoat equally difficult to find a satis-
factory dress-maker or seamstress. Tboy
aro nearly all superficial and un-thorough,

and technical teaching a now era muy bo
hoped for. Women havo boon wasted, for
tho most part, until now, and with tho development of their working faculties will
come a great surprise for thoso who huvo
for bo long a period underrated tholr powers, Woman has till lately boen regarded
rather in tho light of a cadenza in music, or

Thoroughness, ovon In somo simplo mattor,

And what a rare treasure Is tho conscientious, thorough woman when fouud I  En-

Mr, Thomas Mowat, inspector of
Ihhcrics, has had some phutogrnphs of
rather a peculiar naturo taken at Harrison river. The subject of the principal picture is a bIior! oE salmon en-
terinp tho Hnrriaon from n creek; tlto
liah are in tho Bhrtllotvs and they are
reproduced with wonderful fidelity in
tlio photograph, nnd tho pretty effoct
given by seeing thom darting along in
their native element ia very pleasing.
Tiio surrounding scenery ia lovely, nnd
tho foilngo with the sunlight shimmering ou it, and the sparkling waters of
the creek nnd river make up a study
any artist might be proud of. Mr.
Mowat is sending copies of thia beautiful sceno to varioUB parts uf tho country. It will mnko a capital advertisement for British Columbia's lish and
ocnnuiy. Tho benutiea of the Harrison lake nnd river certainly deserve
all tho pruiso they got.

Bun CuiuiirudOH,
Last night ut the Club restaurant a
most recherche littlo banquot was given
by tho law students of Westminster.
Tho occasion for this pleasant affair
was the departure frum their midst
of Mr. J. A. Aikman, whu hue been
studying law in tho oilice uf Messrs.
Corbould, McColl & Jenns for aomo
time past, nnd who goes to Victoria tomorrow to enter tho offioo of Messrs.
Jackson, Helmcken & Aikman, of
which firm his father is n member.
About twenty of tho junior bar gathered round tho hospitable bonrd, which
waa londed with tho delicacies of tho
season, purveyed by the maiire de
cuisine of tho Club, and discussed tho
said dolicaoies with the utmost relish
and bonhomie. The guest of tho
evening, in responding, in it very
graceful speech to lho toast of his
health, expressed his deep regret at
parting with such line fellows ns ho
had found tho gentlemen who had assembled fco do him honor, to be. He
was aorry to leavo Westminster, whero
ho had spent so mnny happy days, nnd
it would always bc n si.ieeru pleasure
to visit thu royal city, Mr. Aikman's
eloquent speeoli was npplfluded to tho

in their remarks in regretting Mr.
Aikman's departure, but wished him
health, wealth and prosperity in Victoria. Tho party broko up about two
o'clock thia murning, after enjoying a

A Despicable Swindle.
Thu honest and unsuspecting SI*
washes of Chilliwack havo lately suffered a considerable loss through tho
dishonesty of two swindlers, whu, it ia
hoped, will soon find their way to tho
penitentiary. Two mon, named Kon-
neth McLcnn nnd J. C. Allen, arrived
ut Chilliwack about six weeks ago from
Kamloops, announcing themselves to
bo horso and cattlo dealers, on tho
lookout for a band of good ponies.
The Indiana on the Chilli.rack reservation breed mnny ponies, and tho
swindlers lest, no timo in opening negotiations for the purchase of nbout 20
animals. Tho Indians wero willing to
sell, and ns the purchasers did not
haggle over tho price, a bargain was
soon completed by which tho finest
ponies on tho reservntion became the
property of McLean nnd Allen. In
roturn for tho animals tlie swindlers
gave a joint noto fur tho nmount, sovoral hundred dollars, payablo in 30
days. The Indiana woro assured liy
the horso dealers that tho noto wns all
right, und would bo mot sharp to tho
day it was duo. The foolish Si washes,
suspecting no fraud, uccoptod tho note
und allowed tbo ponios to go. Sinco
that dato nothing further has beon
hoard uf tho swindlers oxcopt that
they took lho animals tn tlio United
Statea, wheru thoy were disposed of.
Tlio imto haa not been paid, nor is thoro
tiny likelihood of tho Indiana ever obtaining one cont uf their money. Mr.
MoTiorntin, Indian agent, waa notified
of the swindle a couple of weeks ago,
nnd nitico then ho hns boon doing hia
utmost to ascortnin the whereabouts of
thu scoundrels, but without success.
Tho authorities also have been at work,
but with no better results. McLean
and Allen will probably remain on tho
south sido of tho bordor, and become
rospectnblo citizens of tho great ropublic.      „__________

BRITISH COLUMBIA   TOBACCO.
Opinion of a Well-Known Expert—At
Fine as Any Tobacco Grown.
It lias been known for many yeara
thut tho soil aud climate of British
Columbia woro both admirably adapted
to Lho growth of tobacco, but tho general improasinii seemed tn bu that although Lhe plant could ba easily cultivated, tho soil did uot contain the
requisite properties to produce the
quality required in tlie leaf to make it
uf fuir market valuo. This opinion
has been proved wrong, and, in fact,
completely reversed by ono of the best
expert' iu the tobacco trado in tho
United States. A few daya ago Mr.
H. T. Read received ;i box uf raw, un-
curod leaf tubaccu, from a friend iu
Chilliwack, Mr. Mark Huff, a woll
known rancher, which the lattor ro-
quested should be shown to some expert on tubacco for an opinion. Tho
package was delivered to Mr. William
Tieijen, of llio Mainland Cigar Factory, whu pronounced it a superior
article us far us culor, sizo of lenf nnd
quality went, but valueless from tho
faot thut it bad nut boen properly
cured. Yesterday Mr. M. P. Kohl-
berg, a well known tabacco expert,
nud head of the large importing houso
of M. P. Kuhlberg & Co., San Fran*
ciaco, was in tho city, and to that gentleman Mr. Tictjen showed the Chilliwack leaf aud askod for an opinion.
After n very careful examination the
expert pronounced the leaf to be equal
to tho very beat Sumatra leaf, which
commands tho highest prico on tho tobacco market. Mr. Kuhlberg was
mora than surprised with tho articlo,
nnd snid that tho thin veins, sizo of
leaf, color nnd grain, were all thut is
looked for in the very finest varieties.
Aa regards curing the loaf, he said that
could be done by artificial means, the
samo as nro in uso in all tobacco growing countries. Ho rocommonde that
tho boat Havnnn and Sumatra seed bo
imported by the fanners, and trials
givon, which ho ia sure cannot fail to
result satisfactorily.
Mr. Tietjon says the United Stales
supplies, free of charge, tabacco soul
to intending growers, and ho thinks
influence should be brought to bear
on the Dominion government to adopt
tho same courso, nnd thus facilitate in
evory way tho advancement of thia now
and most promising looking industry.
Tobacco growing should also bo one of
the first efforts uu the experimental
farms at Agassi;:. Mr. Hull'haa about
20 ton3 of lho leaf, which, unfortunately, is worthless, owing to its having
bceu pac'.ied in nn imcurod condition.
Mining; Nolri.
Tho Times says: A lottor from Rook
Creek, under date of November 30th
last, received by Mr. Morris Moss, of
this city, states n rich striko has boon
mado in the Cariboo olaim. The mino
ia owned by piutios in Spokano Falls,
who intend to brin*,' in tho latest milling machinery at onco. It is also
their intention to make a road to tho
boundary lino, bringing in the machinery by way of Marcus und tho Kcttlo
river.
A petition is boen gut up on Rock
Creek and Kettle river asking tho pre-
vincial government to mako an appropriation for a wagon road from tho
boundary to Camp McKinney. Tho
cost is Baid to bo Ughl, and the rond a
must urgent necessity to what promises
to bo u thriving mining camp. A great
dual of lumber will bo required in tho
camp, nnd with this road pub through
it would grently facilitate thingsall
around. Will tbo government bo just
in tho matter nud oncourago an Industry wliich nt this juncture needs careful
nursing?
