Accordingtoacorrespondentof the

who cannot read. When asked for

tells the interrogator to take those

probably.
"I'm a relative of tlie president,
and 1 can't allow any such talk
against him," exclaimed a man in
Washington to a group of others
who were speaking disrespectfully of
Mr. Harrison. "Let's see," said one,
"what ofiiico do yon hold f "I

Says an exchange : Thoro is a
proposition afoot to remove the
whole population of Iceland, numbering about 75,000, to tho most habitable part of Alaska. Life iu Ice-
laud is growing harder from year to
year, and if the people and tho Danish government are agreed, thero is
no doubt that the colonists would bc
benefited by tho change. They
would find their new conditions
similar to tho old, but an improvement, and as tm educated, industri-

Tin; Toronto Journal says tlmt if
Britain does not take steps to protect Canadian fiishermetij the solr
practical principle of the connection
between Canada and the Mother
Country dies, This is a fact beyond doubt. Or course England lias
her diguity to maintain, but as a
practical matter she would probably
prefer to let Canada go rather than
have n war with the United .States.
In that event she would loso Canada
anyway, and also her carrying trade,
with tho chance of Russia seizing
the opportunity to make a move in
Central Asia,—8, F. Bulletin.
Blowing is a great deal easier work

King Alexander, of Servia, says
a London Times writer, is not yet
thirteen years old; but he is precociously developed, and looks as
English boys do at fifteen or sixteon.
It seems but n short while ago that
ho was photographed in a sailor's
dress and knickerbockers ■ but now,
in his colonel's uniform, he stands
as tall as the three rogents and has
acquired a good deal of self-possession. He has bright features, but
not an intellectual face. His forehead is low, and little of it would be
seen if ho did uot wear his hair close-
cropped. He has largo soft eyes
and a quick, passing sinilo ; but a
physiognomist would say that the
mouth and nose showed indecision of
character.
Admiral E. A. Inglotield sends to
the Morning Post an interesting account of the presentation to Nelson
of his coflin some timo before his
death. Ho says : "Ben Hallowell,
captain of tlio Swiftsure, who
was afterwards better known in the
navy as Admiral Sir Benjamin Hnll-
owell Carew, waa a great personal
friend of Nelson's After the battle
of the Nile—when L'Orient was
blown up—a portion of her main-
must was picked up near the Swiftsure, aud 'he captain had a coflin
made from tho wood and scat it to
Nelson with the following letter :
Swiftsure, August, . 1798. Sir,—
1 have taken tho liberty of presenting you with n coflin, made from
tho mainmast of L'Orient, that
whon you have finished your military
career in this world you may be
buried in ono of your trophies, but
that that period may bo far distant
is the earnest wish of your sincore
friend,--Ben Hallowed.' Nelson
was so pleased with the gift that he
caused it to bo placed upright
against tho bulkhead of his dining-
eubin on board tho Victory, immediately behind tho chair where ho
: iways sat al dinner, and there it
I i.'od until used to convey the uior-
I i;': remain** of Llm hero to lm last

Schurf, of Rock ville, Conn., pleaded
not guilty to a charge of forgery this

unhealthy prisons.
London, Aug. 11,—The reports of
the unhealthy condition of the prisons
in which Irish political prisoners are
outmed, are causing considerable ex*
citement, and the government naturally comes in for its share of blame.
Many more excitable critics of Mr.
Balfour do not hesitate to chargo that
the worst post holes among the Irish
prisons are purposely selected for the
incarceration of those convicted of violation of the orimea act. The condition of the prisou at Falcarragh particularly is referred tu us a disgrace to
civJ.i';ation, and it ia pointed out that
although tho attention of tho authorities hai been called to it repeatedly iu
the past year, nothing has ever been
done to remove the danger of an epidemic to which its filthy condition is
a standing invitation. On Thursday
last John McGee was released from
this pest hole iu a pitiable condition,
en 1 when he reached his home it was
only to die noxt day ot typhus fever.
He had entered the prison a picture of
hei'lth snd strength. Ho came uut a
physical wreck. Another prisoner, a
man named Frieze, who wu also re*
leased a few days ego, is also dead
from typhoid fever, contracted white

Umt the nlmoBt unanimous verdict
will be tliat, important an undertik-
ing as the Canadian Western Hail-
way is, tbe "resources of the country" have already been sufficiently
"applied" in its aid; that other interests end undertakings must not
be sacrificed even to secure within
the shortest possible time a second
transcontinental railway through
British Columbia.
Notice is given elsewhere by tho
city clerk and returning officer that
nominations for a mayor and two
aldermen to serve the remainder of
the year, in the places of Mayor
Hendry and Aldermen Scoullar and
Townsend, resigned, will take place
on Saturday next. With respect to
the chief magistracy, it appears to
be generally conceded now that late
Acting Mayor Townsend, who has
resigned from the aldermanio board
for the purpose of accepting nomination as mayor, will not be opposed,
and will consequently be elected to
that position by acclamation. Mr.
Townsend will make a good mayor
at this time, as he has made a first-
rate alderman. Having been elected at the beginning of the municipal
year and faithfully attended to civic
business since, he is perfectly conversant with all matters before the
present council or likely to come before it during the remainder of the
term, and is therefore better qualified to assist in carrying out its generally approved policy on all matters than would be one of our citisens from outside the council. Mr.
Townsend has given every evidence
that he will bring to the duties of the
mayoralty faithfulness and zeal in the
public interests and a fair share of
ability and magisterial dignity. No
names have been authoritatively
mentioned, that we are aware of, as
candidates for aldermen to fill the
two vacancies in tho board. Two
of the very best men—and men that
will work harmoniously with the remainder of the council, which has
the confidence of the ratepayers—
are wanted; and, considering the
shortness of the time, this fact
should be acted on immediately.
The  Colonist, after considerable
lapse of time, in which Mr. Davie's
address was  not  mentioned by it
conies out with an unqualified approval of that production.   Over a
column of rather forced matter is
devoted to furnishing the attorney-
general's manifesto with an indifferent "understanding."   The first sentence  is reassuring:   "Hon.  Mri
Davie's  address  to the electors is
full of fibre and meaning.   Though
short, it is sufficiently long to enable
him to tell the public that the chief
reason of the author's presence in
the cabinet is to further, hia policy,
clearly enunciated  on  the floor of
lhe liouse  last session, to push to
quick   completion  a second transcontinental railway through British
territory, traversing the centre of
the province and finding its western
terminus at Victoria or Esquimalt."
The Colonist goes on further to say,
arguing from Mr. Davie's address,
"The government are now committed  to a  policy which is fraught
with   important   consequences  for
this oity and province."   The Colonist goes on to compare the Oanadian  Western   and   the  Victoria,
Saanich  &  Westminster Railway
schemes, and affects to ignore the
land grant of between ten and twelve
million acres that was made in aid
of the former enterprise at the last
session of the legislature.   "According to the Timet and Dr. Milne,"
says the Colonist, "the legislation of
last   session was  all that was required lo build the Oanadian Western Bailway.   How does it happen
that  similar   legislation   Iub  not
proved as efficacious iu the case of
the amphibious line, and that the
city is now asked to furnish   *   *
«   material  aid)   *   *   *   Why
do Dr. Milne and his co directors
petition the ratepayers to give them
a financial   lift)  Because without
municipal aid they cannot hopo to
float their scheme [viz., the Victoria,
Saanich ,1- Westminster Railway J.
Why has Mr. Davie induced tlio
oabinet to make the construction of
a new transcontinental lino through
the heart of tho provinco a part of
their policy I   Because without the
assistance, of  the government tho
line will not be undertaken by capitalists."   The Colonist sums up as
follows:  "On one side stands Mr,
Davie, who says that he enters the
cabinet on the distinct understanding that the Oanadian Western will
be built, if necessary, with government assistance.   On the other side
stands Dr. Milne, who thinks that
the line is already 'a matter of faot,'
that is, already built.   The electors,
with this issue presented to them,
will not hesitate to seleot Mr. Davie
H their representative in the house
or the oabinet."   There is no doubt
that the Colonist will prove a true
prophet   when it  oays that  Mr.
Davie's constituency will return him
on the railway issue which he haa
raised—that is, if the electors accept
hll declarations, and their corroboration and support by the Colonist, as
anything more than "eleotion talk."
But, it Mr. Davie and the government are actually pledged—if the
declaration is tone taken seriously—
to "apply Ihe resources of the country, so  far  as  can be ligitimately
done, in furtherance of this project,"
will tho electors of the province generally look at the question inthe
Mme way and act in the same manner  a Itr. Davie'a constituents I
W» do not think to.   We believo
An American cotemporary discerns a very black shadow (and most
terribly black it undoubtedly is) in
the murder record of the United
States for the first six mouths of tha
current year, and enlarges on tho
subject aud goes into explanation!
as follows: It seems hardly credible,
yet during the first half of this year
there were 1,547 murders committed
in our country, against 941 committed during the lirst six months of
last year, and 867 during the corresponding period in 1887. Thero is
progressive iniquity with u vengeance! Aro we permitting tho
thugs to take possession of the country t The murder fanciers would indeed seem to be taking a hint from
DeQuincey and to be organizing a
"Society of Connoisseurs in Murder,"
and it would seem that we are returning to the dismal period held up
to execration by Laotantius, when
he said, "Human life is guarded by
laws of the uttermost vigor, yet custom has devised a mode of evading
them in behalf of niurder." Verily
the laws for the protection of human
life stand in stern array upon tlio
statute books, but there is a wassail
of crime in the land, and the murder
account goes creeping up to formidable and horrible figures. Worse,
too, that in an ago of vaunted re
finement the most of those murders
were of a very brutal description.
There is a certain refinement even
in murder when subtle drugs aro
used to do the work silently, swiftly
and surely and the victim passes
away in an apparently quiet sleep,
but the record of these murders of
six months is drenched with blood
and gaping wounds and hideous
bruises. The knife, the bludgeon,
the revolver, tho shot-gun havo
largely been the implements, nnd
boys nnd women, as well as brutal
men, have been the murderers. Life
is held cheaply uiul llio implements
for murder may bo bought for a
song. They nre pressed upon the
attention of the public in pawning
shop windows. There are knives
multiform, with keen and glittering
blades; pistols to he had from a
dollar upwards. It is tho fashion to
give to little children pistols and
rifles, diminutive, but deadly still,
for playthings, nnd sn the education
in the art of murder goes on. The
boy of seven years snaps a toy pistol
in your faco as you pass along tho
street. Murder's implements aro all
too cheap and accessible. The spirit
of murder immanent in the man is
tempted outward by tho vory facilities offered to commit murder. But
there are other reasons why the passion of murder rages in our country.
The public compassion has been carried too far, and we give the murderer too long a chance for obtaining
his liberty. Tho bounds of reason
are transcended. The stroko which
should follow the unerring fastening
of guilt upon the accused is delayed
on slender pretexts. The prisoner
spends a few years in jail and then
escapes, or is pardoned. There are
many jails throughout the country
full of men who, had they suffered
their deserts, would have suffered
capitally years ago. In our social
state the death penalty is intended
to be a dreadful deterrent of murder;
but it is not. Tho murderer recalls
the number of cases where the easily
wrought public sympathy has saved
the fiend from tho gallows; how
many petitions for reprieve; how
many successful pleas for a new
trial, pardon, commutation of sentence, there havo been, and he takes
his chances. Another cause for the
frightful increase of murder is the
increasing dissemination and adoption of the spirit of the teaching of
the materialism of tho day, which is,
aftor all, only the cold meat of old
Democritus and Lucretius Titus
Oaius warmed over again, that men
are not responsible for their actions
unless responsible to the blind and
soulless universe; that wrong doing
ia but on incident of matter; a left-
handed spiral movement of the molecules of the brain does it; that thero
is no authoritative creator. It is
this undermining of a souse of responsibility which helps on the catalogue of crimo and increases tliu lax
administration of the law.

Stato Press Premium Competition.]
I It Is certain Sanborn was poiulior. Tho
. GBOVtoi'a spent a good deal of timo off and
.in, whon tho fishing was not good, or tho
havillon music developed rather moro dis-
Ilnct irnceaof beor and rather loss lntima-
Uouo of tho waltz than usual in critical
atudloQ oE his character, and it occurred to
[hem that ho waa ovon romarkablo.
J They had never aeon a human boing capo-
i'dcoC surroundingbimBOlE with bo dciiao a
physical and mental calm as tho man with
•flic expressionless voico and straggly brown
leiutl who rented the boats around at tbe
' ,'ld wharf, and whilo ono could not taolp but
' co that Uo might havo been energetic
tenough und clever enoughiE ho had cared to
!i uko tlio trouble, evory body agreed that it
would rctiuiro nothing less than a mighty
miplmtio curthquako Bhock to sot throbbing
jfho myBtorious and impalpable main*
mpring which would havo driven on day and
light till tho delicate llttio wheels and
■Vpi'ings and lovers ol boing that tho resort-
i va woro Eond oE phtlOBOphizlng about, but
Svlilch Boraohow, had novor boon roused to
J ft ion hi Sauborn. But thoy wero all quite
f ii-rong, It required only tho clinging touch
ME n littlo child's hand to do it.
? Tho pity oE it was that Sanborn was noar-
i'y forty boforo Zannio camo. Tho Eoct that
Luring tho long Bummor ho was compelled
f, ii liroiilho in sevornl thousand times ti day
1 lie lieut quivora that hung tromuloiiB over
j lio iiuidy beach road in ordor to oxist ut all
-as so crushing In itself tliat whon it oo-
-arred to hiin Sanborn could only master
s emotion by wandering down to tho rick-
y wharf wliich ran out into tho clear
. utora of Pino Lako and dozing regretfully
I ,-iV in any ono oE his boats that chanced to
K'-o rocking idly alongside. But when ho
s'-trodo out of tho stifling littlo chamber
ft/hero ho saw for tho first timo Zannio'B
i luo eyes staring contented up at him from
J;, ho placo whero bis wife's calloused hands
(mold her closely, hia bent shoulders had
tjitraiglilcncd by somo miracle, and n cur-
fl-tiut of strong, full life Buch as ho had ncv-
t ,11- known boforo tingled through his veins
[{■•ind inipolled him to action.
[ Tlio resort peoplo watched tho metamor-
p ihosia In Sanborn incredulously. Wof. n*s
h.voro freely laid that iho mainspring which
Hependod for its going on so fleeting a thing
I it. i he imbecile doubhiig of a pair of chubby
ist:*, tho mysterious gleams of light from
Rabghingoyes or tho hold upon cxistonco
nf a lite as fragile aa ono of tho reeds that
Jtwuyed lightly up and down boforo tho
iJurgo of tlio Uiko would not last tho season
Bit-.
But tho roeddfd not break, aud whon thoy
mo back the next summer aud tho nost, n
ij with a chronically repentant expression
iM the key to thb row-boat situation, and
■ ni was hard at work on hired land
: mi llio hills. By and by a sunbeam fol*
u'i il in tho wako of his plow-share. Tho
;ub aiii's faco was not always irreproach-
ily i lean, and tho yollow hair would get n
i , ,i i0led at times, but that was a summer
;-li .i breath against tho granite wall of
in'. ■i-iiY, homage, uud as for Zannio—well
tunic- tiidn't mind nny thing bo long as Bho
iiKl lo with Dan—it was ono of tho peon
u ii los of Zanitic's being that sho couldn't
11 Sanborn any thing but Dan to savo her
LUo livelong day, aud bask in tho utmo-
'.vi'Of mutual worship which enveloped
a two. And then tlio evenings! Dan and
io always spent thom on tho bench in front
if tho littlo liouse, whero, when thoy tired
tho flushing fight!-and tho laughter of
resort grounds, near by, they watched
.Messed silenco tho long slunt of the
liver sheen which tho moon sent across the
jpiirkling waters of lho Lako o'tho Pines,
,ml which Sanborn one night in a burst of
inspiration christened Zannio'a pathway
■■ml i hen pledged tho child to invlolnto bg-
ooy ovor tho discovery.
Peoplo had quito recovered from their
.tUonif-hraent at tlio revelation in Sanborn's
C,':-l'.-in of oxistenco when ono day, four
anrB aftor Zannio hud come into his life, ho
■cut, away to mcot the man who contcni-
liucd buying tho littlo place that ho might
a;.*iiiliccutly disfigure tho shoro with an*
!ur summer hotel. Sanborn might posBl-
y return that night; ho hardly thought he
lould. Still, when Zannio hoard tho dis-
nt clatter und rumbloof tho eveniug train
's it rushed away from tho littlo station on
;o opposite side of tho lake, and raising
ors'olf in bed caught a gliinpso of the long
Vail of sparks loft behind, it occurred to
tho water at his very foot by the careless
surges.
Go back tor tb' liouse, mother," ho. sail,
gently enough, but laboriously. "Thoy
hov'—taken Zannio, as yer say. 1 think I
seen 'er. Sho bed somothin' around 'or.
Go in,   I'll wait—till she comes back."
Drowned! Zannio drowned! No, no;
what ho saw and could not take his eyea
from was nn Illusion. Bomo freak played
upon his vision becauso the child was iu. bin
miud so much. But if it wero n trick, a
__.ryjo9t of tho imagination, why had tho
gcnt'lo lap of tlio water among tho lily
leave!! turned to something that sounded
In his ear liko a dirge! Not until the woman was indoors did Sanborn stretch himsolf out ou tho wharf, and oxlcyding his
arm down into lho water, halt gropingly,
ns though his fingers fully realized the
prank his eyes woro playing bnn, gently
dl'icnlnugled tho yellow hair, while lho
grayish pallor on his faco deepened. Yes,
It was a dirge after all. With such u
tenderness as even ho had never shown beforo, lie pressed tho inanimate form reverently against his breast, drew the outstretched hand against his neck, and with
tho fair, dank hair lying upon his shoulder
he carried Zannio down tlto sagging planks
for tho last timo. His stop across tho roud
was slow, apathetic, lifeless. Tho millstone
of inertia had fallen about Sanborn's ucck
onco moro,
It never lifted again.
Long afterwards ho sat ono night in lho
familiar, listless attitude on tho bench
where ho and tho child had listened hour
after hour totho splash of lho fish out in
the lako and the drono of tho f roga along
lho nedgca, und as tho full moon cainonp
Zannio's pathway glistened across llio
wator. Farther and farther across lho
breast ol tho lako it crept until iUsHvcry
light touched tho old wharfj-mid-then the*
passive watcher saw lho figure of u little*
child standing on tho planks below him-a
child with sunny hair and a light of inc.**:-.
prOBBlblo welcome on ita faco revealed by
tho glory of the radiance in whicli it stood.
Sanborn leaned forward, his arras out-
strotclicd.
"Zannio, Zannio," ho called softly, unsteadily.   " It's timo to como In, dear "
Tho old tender srailo hovered about his
mouth as bo sank abruptly back on tlio
bonch, uud when tho moon stolo around lho
trees an hour later and cast its beams upon
tho insonatc form lying there, tho faco had
grown strangely cold and quiot-'-but tho smil'o
was there still.

*; out behind.   No Dan in Bight) Oh, well,
0 couldn't row across that big lako in n

1 cd phantom of n moon which was nailing
* in tho depths in a state of obvious in-
-icalion.  And thoro, plainly within her
ach, n great fragrant water-lily  was
idding its head good-humoredly.
" I doss I'll pick 'at for Dan," said Zannio,
ilicuily.
Ono of tho resortorB who was lounging
ider lho maples with his gaze fixed on tho
ji of his cigar, fancied ho hoard tho a. ho of
faint, Gasping cry. Ho did not hoar it
nor wos Zannio's cheery bnbblo
ard moro forever. At her linger tips was
coveted blossom when sho tumbled
[adlong down into tho wator. Scarce two

uio, agonized struggle with death, and

Every ripple on tho Lake o' tho Pines was
-c-lcam of gold, transparent, spnrkliug,
pr shifting into now and moro dazzling
.-ins of translucent boauty under the
oad Bhofts of molten splendor which tho
ling suii waa throwing forward between
o long uccdlo-pointB of tho fringe of pines
lho Eastern shoro. When Sanborn
ghitod from tbo early morning tram, tho
aolo hiko was sobbing Boftly to itself out
joy nt tho tondor, carrosslng touch that
,o sun had laid upon it, aud something
'ry liko tho Bound of ono of its sobs camo
in bis throat and deepened lho tondor
'lit in his eyes as he sent his bbat through
o water with quick, impatient Btrokos.
v*cr Ihcro whoro the waters always mur-
jurcdmoro softly and sweetly than any-
■sioio else, Zannio was waiting for him.
•obably tho Utile witch wos standing on
o old dock then, dancing up and down in
, *r eagerness for recognition, and with her
uffy hair all blown softly about hor faco;
it ho—lio would not turn his faco unlil tho
ry wharf was reached, aud thou ho would
iring out and catch hor up liko a whlrl-
ind, to bo rowarded with tho musio of hor
lighter.
But whon tha boat touched tho plunks and
rtrabom turned, with wido opened arms,
io child waB not thoro. His wifo was hur-
■ing across the road, with hoad un-
tvorcd and hands clasping and unclasping
omulously.
Dy yo a'poso any tho boarders havo took

i ugony of oagoriios*-. " Thoy
'ouldn't tako 'er iu 'or night clolhos, would
ioy? Hev yo seen'or, Dan? She's gono."
"Gonol' Sanborn repeated dully. Ardow,
shy pallor showed thrpugh tho sunburn on
in faco,
Mechanically ho throw tho looped chain
f lho boat ovor tho nearest post. As ho
id so his oyos foil full upou tho llttio

VatiBuphoU preserved tho picture. In the
play in progress on tlto stage two ladies are
ln oonvorBntioii, and some ono outer's tb
them, probably a messenger* but it is probablo that this la a fancy booho aud cornea

Outside of Jacksonville, a couplo of

Tho servant girl came.   Jacob trnid;
"I want a wifo ami l hnvo picked yon out

The Ureat Ian,
Yesterday nnd to-dny the salmon
run 1ms been simply marvellous, and
tlioro 13 no bign yet of diminishing
numbers. Although the boiils do not
go out until 0 o'clock on Monday
morning, by noon moat of thu canneries had all tho fish thoy could handle for tho dny, and tho in I j wore
hauled out until the night shifr. Such
a record ia unusual. All tho cannery-
men agree that tho preient run of salmon ia unprecedented iu tho history of
the Eraser river, and such a run may
nevor happen again in tho present
generation- A number of old fishermen profess to seo a new run of Book*
eyea iu tho fiah that have been caught
during the hist two days. They are
about two pounds lighter than the
regulation sockoyc- but n beautiful
lish in every way. These fishermen
feel certain that this now run is tho
work of the Fraser river hatchery, and
thoil Burinise is very likely to bu correct. The humpback salmon u beautifully scarce tliis year, a circumstance
of much pleasure to the liahormen,
Nearly all the canneries aru making a
second supply of tins, which are boing
filled almost as rapidly as liiey are
mado. Thore is no idling how mueh
longer tho big run will Inst, for it
should lmve been ended a week ot
more ago. However, nt the close of
this week tho caniieryiiieu expect tho
ruu io ease off considerably. The
average catch yesterday and to-day
was from 100 to 1H0 liah to a drift.
IM-friili'il 'cleilliil-i.
The big salmon run has had a demoralizing ellect mi the Chinese employed in the various canneries, and
an organized attempt seeuia to havo
been niranged by the Celestials to
corner tho canners and force them to
grant higher wages than they over demanded boforo. But the Chinese
failed to manage their big strike properly and consequently came out second best, At the Wellington Packing
Co., on-Saturday, the entire forco of
Chineae laborers ■itruok work and began to act in a rather highhanded manner. The assistance of the law was
invoked and two officers from the provincial gnol went down to Mr. Ladner's assistance. The affair bad threatened to assume nn ugly Bhape, but tho
arrival of the officers and the prompt
measures taken by them quickly resulted in t'io Chinese finding thoy
would have to behave properly or suf-
,fer the consequence*, nml in n shoit
time Ihe strikers returned to work nnd
•the great Celestial row was at. an end.
On Sunday tho Chinese laborers at
Ewen's cannery struck wurk, but Mr,
Ewen was equal to tho occasion. Ho
caused a number ot scows to bo hauled
'ttlong sido tho wharf and then ordered
every Chinuman in the camp to get
aboard as fast aa I hey could, fur he was
not going lu allow them to remain
another hour. This rather startled
tho C.lostials, who nover expected
bucIi au outcome from tho movement,
foolishly imagining they were in a
position to dictate any terms they
eho3n to Mr. Ewen. As the Chinoso
did'.nut seem inclined to leive, Air,.
Ewen got his Indians together and
gave thom orders to destroy all the
shanties occupied by tho Btrikers,
which being Mr. Ewen's property ho
could dt) ns ho pleased with. Tho Indians weru anxious lo havo it out with
the Oliinoso in a fair fight, but, oE
cqurse, nothing of this kind would bo
tolerated. Whon thonlnkevs saw that
they wore bound to get the worst of
the affair, they scattered like sheep,
ami a littlo later sent their foreman to
inform Mr. Ewen that work wuuld bo
resumed on the old terms The
prompt action of Mr. Ewen in this instance probably saved him consider*
nblo inconvenience, if not troubles
much more serious; The movement
having promptly failed in thoso two
cases will certainly have a beneficial
effect ou tho Chinese employed in the
other canneries, and it is probable no
further troubles will occur   this yenr.

Capt. Sieward of the schooner Waller L, Rich is preparing a claim
against tliu United States government
for damages on account of illognl exclusion from the Behring Sefl, he not
beiug allowed, by tho officers of tho
United States revenue sorvico, to prosecute his business of seal hunting in
that sea. Capt. Sioward says lhat ho
entered Ounalaaka for the purpose of
looking up the law, and that he wan
told by United States officials that his
vessel would bo subject to seizure if ho
captured seals in the acn. He now
holds that if the action of tho United
States authorities is not lawful, thon
thnt government should be obliged to
pay him for his loss of timo after being driven from the sea by United
States cruisers. This action of Capt.
Steward's will boa test case, as ho is
