NOTES ANO COMMENTS.
It appears that the rush to Oklahoma was a rush of speculators, and
not a movement of bonajide settlers.
Now that the "town-lot" gentry
have como and gone, there is a
sadly diminished population, About
2,000 of the 10,000 quarter sections oE hind have been taken up.
There is no push about further
entries. Tho extra clerks in the
land offices have been discharged.
Oklahoma has fallen from its dizzy
pre-eminence among the milk-and-
honey regions of the earth to a common place, Kansas, sage brush, red-
earth level. A new Utopia must
be found. Now that it is all over
it is pleasant to think that the dupes
were not solid and substantial people.
They were mainly persons who
intended to dupe others—the fringe
of froth that preoedes the advancing
wave of civilization.—Ex.

What next! A Montreal merchant
has had the hardihood to throw
a book ugent out of his oilice, and
the law having been invoked by the
aggrieved party, the magistrate patted the oll'endcr on the back and
decided that the vendor of literature had no right to intrude against
the wishes of the proprietor of the
office. There is small comfort for
the army of book agents in such a
repressive decision. No longer may
they freely exorcise thoir sovereignty
over the whole earth, take possession of a man's timo and ollii-p,
reconstruct all his notions on literature and art and sell him books to a
fabulous amount of money, to raise
which his family have to economise
for years and he to pawn his Sunday clothes. Unless an appeal is
taken against this iniquitous decision,
the freedom of any book ugent is a
minus quantity and his influence
reduced to that of the humblest
millionaire.-—fas.

It is an undoubted fact- we are
assured by a scientific journal, that
expeditions to the Antarctic Circle
are liable to moot with difficulties
much more terrible than those which
are associated with voyages in search
of the, North -Pole The great lone
land which may be supposed to He
around the South Pole, is likely to
remain unexplored long after the
North Polo has yielded up its secrets.
Thero are, for instance, no such
warm currents in the neighborhood
of the Soutli Pole as uro to be found
oiF Labrador or Spitzbergen. It *re
consequently very much colder in
the Antarctic than it is in the
Arotic ocean, and exploration is all
the more hazardous. Still Professor
Ncumayer, of the Hamburgh Marine
Observatory, seems determined to
persist in his proposed Antarctic
expedition; and search for the South
Pole under German auspices would
be at once organized if only Prince
rjismarck would give his consent
to (he grant out of tho national
exchequer of a moiety of tho funds
required.
The following story is told regarding the ready comprehension
which some people profess for everything that Browning haB written.
One lndy was talking about the
matter with another, a profound
Browningite. "I am sure," said the
latter, "that I understood without
ditliculty everything that Browning
wrote." "And upon tho first reading 1" asked the other, "Certainly."
The first lady took down her
Browning," turned gravely to ono
of the most mystical of tho poems
and began to read it wrong end
first—that is to say, she read tho
last lino first, and then the next to
the last line, and kept on till sho
had read the whole, finishing in an
animated delivery with the first lino
of the poem. She lent to the rhyme,
more or less dubious, of the poet tho
music, quite undeniable, of her voice*
and the new disciple of Browning
drank it all in with eager ears.
-There !' the reader said, when she
had finished, 'do you mean to say
that you understood that 1* 'Perfectly,'said the other; 'nothing could bo
more luminous than thoso glorious
lines, which march from their introductory statement to their irresistible conclusion like tho gleaming
advance of a splendid army.' "
An exchange gives the following
interesting information in answer (o
a correspondent: The meaning of
Rothschild is Red Shield. In 1763
Mayer Amschel made his appearance
in Hanover barefoot, with o sack on
his shoulders and a bundle of rags
on his back. Successful in trade he
returned to Frankfort and set up n
small shop, over which he hung the
signboard of a red shield. As a dealer
in old coins he became known to
William I. Elector of Hesse Cassel,
wbo appointed him confidential
agent. The Serene Elector being compelled to fly his country, Meyer
Amschel took charge of his cash
amounting to £2:>0,000. When
Napoleon was banished to Elba,
and the Elector returned, Amschel
was dead, but his son Ansel m restored the money—an not of noble
honesty which the elector mentioned
while attending the congress at
Vienna, Hence arose the greatness
of thu houso, which assumed the
name of the Red Shield. In 1863
Oharles Rothschild recoived six
million sterling as his personal share
and retiring pension from the firm
of the five brothers, who have their
establishments in the principal capitals of Europe, At the conclusion
of the Prunco- Prussian war the
Rothschilds provided the war indemnity of £200,000,000 demanded by
Germany from France.

came to Ottawa and they were given
to understand that they could come in

Canada. The constitution of Canada
knows nothing of religious differences,

immigration and get the country settled. These people are coming into
hind bought by them, and they distinctly understand that they have to
conform to the laws of the Dominion
especially aa regards polygamy. Should
they transgress, the law is strong

Montreal, May 31.—Chaa. Albert
Smith, the colored bell boy at tbe
Windsor in 1831. who in that year

years in the penitentiary, has been
pardoned by his excellency the governor-general.

A LONG DESIRED CHANGE.
Montreal, May 31.—It is reported
here that Canadian railways as well as
siime in tho U. S. intend to do away
with the tipping system to Pullman
oar conductors and porters, as strung
objections have been made by the public. It is also said that the services of
colored attendants will be dispensed
with as the tipping idea is so firmly
fixed in their minds that it is the best
way to eradicate it. The sleeping car
company have had agents in Europo
aud Canada for the past threo months,
quietly and carefully selecting proper
material to replace the present foroe
and a general change will probably be
made about July.
libelling: Canadian cattle.
London, May 30.—The rumors
which have been current hero have
perhaps reached Canada that the privy
council has been considering the seizure of the cargo of Canadian cattle on
tho Bteamer Toronto, because the ves*
sel had been only 23 days clear from
carrying a cargo of United States cat*
tie. There is the best authority to
deny the accuracy of tho statement.
The Canadian Gazelle urges the Canadian steamship companies to punish
the authors of such reports which aro
constantly being put abrcad with a
view to influence British fanners
against Canadian livo stock imports.
THE RUMOK   DENIED.
London, May 30.—The news in today's papers of the despatch of n British warship to Behring Sea served to
create a littlo sensation. None of tho
loading papers commented on it.
Questions, however, woro askod in
tho house of commons to-night. Sir
George Baden-Powell urged the government to propose some modus vivtndi
whereby, without prejudico of tho
various paities concerned, sealing may
be fairly conducted this season and
stops be immediately taken to arrance
for a lasting settlement. Sir .lames
Ferguson replied that the government
was awaiting despatches from the
British minister in Washington, who
was fully conversant with tho question. Mr. Gourley asked whether it
was true that a British warship would
be despatched to Behring Sea to protect British sealers from capturo by
the U. S. cruisers. Sir James Ferguson replied in the negative.
DUFFEIUN  HONORED.
London, May 29.—Sir Charles Tupper took part in the presentation of
tho freedom of tho city ot London to
the Marquis of Duffenn and Ava to*
day. The Marquis was cordially received and repeated reference made to
his success in Canada. He learnt
from Sir Charles Tupper with kesn interest of the gratifying condition of
the Dominion and expressed the lively
concern that ho and Lady Duffenn
still felt in everything Canadian. Sir
Charles Tuppor alio took part in the
Mansion House banqust to-night to
Lord Dufforin,
favorable to the o, r, it.
Seattle, Msy 29.—The senato committeo on trade with Oanadit haa sr*
rived from Viotoria and at 2 o'clock a
session was held in the parlor of the
Occidental Hotel. The evidence of
prominent citizens given was unanimously favorable to the Canadian P.
Railway, which was held to be tho only hope of Washington against the
Northern Pacific Railway's monopolistic tendencies. The consensus of
opinion was that the Canadian road
should be protected by the citizens of
this state patronising that route. The
newspapers in their editorials com- '
ment strongly on the evidence taken
in Tacoma, and state that both east
and west Washington look to the
Canadian Pacifio Railway for protection againat discrimination in rates
favorable to certain localities,

The Alaska Beaadair
Senator Hoar, chairman, convened
tho senatorial committee at the
Driard house last evening, to give
Mayor Grant, M.P.P.,an opportunity to impress upon the committee the
importance of, at as early a day as
possible, defining tho boundary between Canada and the United "States
possessions in Alaska, as well aa the
most desirable manner of demarcation,
not not only for economical reasons
but as a practical and sensible dividing
lino.
Mayor Grant's suggestions were
that Groat Britain and tho United
States should appoint a joint commission, whose instructions would be to as
near as possible bo governed by the
spirit of tho treaty made between
Great Britain and Russia in 1825 for
tbe purposo of establishing a number
of datum points on tho various roads
of ingress to Canada, and at such other
points ns tho goneral nature of the
coast line would warrant, with a due
regard to what would bo fair and
equitable to both nations if straight
linos wero extended between tbe said
fixed points. He endeavored to show
lhat if in places the boundary should
conform to tho winding! of the coast,
aot forth in tho troaty, it would cost a
very targe sum to so define it, besides
being ridiculously impracticable, and
further that at present it would be unnecessary to survey in detail between
the points mentioned until important
interests shall have cropped up, and
evon then tho detail of survey need
not be mado otherwise than between
two given points aa fixed by the commission and ratified by iho parties
thoreto. Mayor Grant's opinion was
stated very explicitly, and as he is
thoroughly informed on the subject,
his statements were accepted by the
committee as material evidence on the
boundary question, one of the most
important subjects that has been delegated to thorn.— Wednesday's Timet.

Friday Evenlna, Mny 81,
A revelation is the nlniost invariable experience o£ the visitor from
tho cast to this province, at this
time of year especially.   The traveller, in search of pleasure, health or
wealth, from tho other side of the
continent,  setting   his  face  westward about tho last of April  or
the first of  May,   leaves   winter
"lingering in  the lap  of  spring"
and very loth to withdraw his biting
touch and chilling presence from the
landscape and the atmosphere.   Arriving a week later on the Pacific
slope, and  in this brightest of the
"gems   of   the   west,"  the balmy
breezes  and  sunny clues, soft aud
luxuriant verdure of field, garden
and forest, the fragrance of flower,
blossom, and bursting bud, and the
rich promise and partial fruition of
the fruits of  the earth, betoken a
fairer clime and usher the delighted
visitor from winter frosts into veritable summer bowers.   Tlie visitor
had heard in his eastern home something of the delights of the seasons
in  the  fair Pacific  province, but
the    half   bad   not   been    told,
nor even that fraction believed and
realized,   The result of seeing for
one's self is a revelation as surprising as agreeable. But if our winters
are short and mild, our springs early
and persuasive, so is the intense heat
of the short eastern summer moderated    here    to    the   deliglitfulest
weather  under  the  sun, and the
enervating  and debilitating effects
which the curse of hot and sultry
nights—when sleep or comfort even
is well nigh impossible—as well as
days,   entails    on     the    dweller
in    the   Atlantic    and    interior
provinces   and   states,   are   altogether   unknown    here.      What
ever the heat of the hottest dny of
midsummer may be, and it is never
intolerable—such n thing  as  sunstroke being practically unknown—
the nights ure ever cool and refreshing, and tired   nature's sweet restorer, gentle  sleep, descends like
a benediction    upon   the   weary,
in mansion and cabin, in city and
country alike.   We challenge anyone suffering front nervousness or
insomnia, induced by tho harrnssing
and  health depleting  climatic  extremes  and   discomforts, und   the
wear and tear, of tho bustling east,
to long withstand, in the possession
of his malady, the  soothing   and
subtle influences of our incomparable
climate.   "Without touching at all
in this article upon what are considered   the moro solid advantages
and resources of a country, we can
npply to the scenery of British Columbia   similar   remarks   to   those
already enumerated about our climate.   Visitors nnd tourists invariably couple these two, and are profuse   and  deservedly unstinted in
their praise of both.
No matter how much opposed any
person  or  parties may be to some
details of tho policy of tbe C.P.R
Company, says the Winnipeg Commercial, or how bitterly they may
have resisted the claims of the company in the past, there is but one
verdict  as   to the enterprise of its
managers and projectors sinco the
syndicate  took hold of it in 1881,
and that verdict is that they have
displayed an enterprise and tenacious onergy such as has never been
exceeded,    and     possibly    never
equalled in tho history of Canada.
The race of grading and track-laying
across   nearly a thousand miles of
prairie to the Rocky Mountains during the year3 1881-2-3-4* the cut
ting, tunneling, bridging and othor
feats of engineering through these
mountains  and  the Selkirk ranges
to the Pacific, and tho work of construction through rock, morass and
relics of a period of volcanic chaos
from Manitoba to the Ottawa valley,
all testify to the enterprise and unflagging energy of the men who constructed the great Canadian transcontinental highway, and their work
will stand in years to come, tbe best
and  greatest  monument  to their
praiseworthy efforts.   AU unprejudiced  minds  will subscribe to the
nbove   well-merited   eulogiuro, but
the Commercial calls attention to a
thing or two which tho gifted and
eloquent president in his address recently at the annual meeting of the
directors  does  not seem  to have
''stepped aside" to notice.    Here is
the   way   tho   Commercial  "gives
away" some of the less prudent and
successful   perform an cess    of    the
"greatest road on earth": "It sometimes does happen that people of a
veiy  enterprising  oharaoter carry
their enterprise too far, or rather
allow it to run into fields from which
they would be better to keep free.
In this respect the O.P.R. Company
have not been free from blunders,
and if their foresight was so defective  ns  to  let them fall into such
mistakes, their after experience waa
sufficient to make them regret tbeir
blunders.   For instance, the famous
philanthropic wheat deal, when the
heads of the company a few years
ago Btepped into the field as grain
buyers in Manitoba in opposition to
the men who  had  invested many
thousands of dollars along their lines,
never for a moment expecting that
they would have to face the unheard
of situation of having their common
carrier to the seaboard as a competitor in their business.   No doubt
the philanthropic deal was a link in
the  engineering of some financial
undertaking   in   which   European
capitalists   had   to   be   coaxed or
tickled; but whether it was successful in that respect or not, the loss it
brought to its operators, and the
injury done to the reputation of our
Northwestern    raised   wheat    in
British markets by the damp and
otherwise damaged stuff, which was
bought and shipped ou philanthropic
and   not  business   principles, was
such that there is not much fear of
a repetition of that blunder.    *   *
*   According to the Trade Bulletin,
(and that journal has a happy knack
of blurting out unpleasant facts at
times) t'ae milling venture, or if you
like it, adventure, of the 0. P. R.
crowd tit Keewatin, although only a
year in operation, has already cost
its owners $75,000 to 6100,000 of a
loss in running alone; so that if kept
in operation upon the same  principles for five years more, wo would
probably hear of   an   appeal   being
mado to the Dominion  government
for a subsidy to keep it running pro
bono publico, for assuredly it has not
so far been run for the benofit of its
owners.   So it would appear, that in
milling as well as grain buying tho
ellects of the C. P. R. combination
have been anything but a success,
and they have received one more expensive pieco of instruction in what
might seem plain to them, namely,
that railroading and  neither commerce nor manufactures is in their
line of business.   If they can only
get that fact firmly fixed in   their
minds there is some hope of their
operating the O. P. R. so that itmay
be a benefit to the grain and milling
intorests of Canada, instead of the
company being as it has been in the
past a menace to both.   Enterprise
is altogether   misguided when its
nose is poked  into  other people's
business, and this is what the C. P.
R. combination have been doing in
connection with both the grain and
milling   business.   The   Keewatin
mill has passed, we understand, into
the control of Messrs. Hastings Bros,
it McGaw, and with this transfer wo
hope will vanish every interference
from O. P. R. magnates with nny
branch of trade to which they nre
servants  as public carriers."   We
trust our cotemporary's hope may bo
realized.   The O.  P. R.  Company
are not too old or  too wise, after
giving them all the credit to   which
they are entitled—wliich is a good
doal—to learn something on   more
than ono point, and with increase of
knowledge should   come  increased
usefulness and valuo iii the public
service, as well as enlarged prosperity
for the company itself.

Somo Tall Stories or an Ancient Florida
Hunter and Hit- Cam**.
Annul*:- ono of tbo oldest aud host-knowi
of 'gator buntors in Soutli Florida is the in
dividual who earned tho sobrli-uct of "Alligator Piatt," Ho was a torrpt- to tlio saurian
tribo, fiiiya the St. Louis Glahc-Djinticra!, uud
wiiiit ho didn't know of theso ugly-Iooliiiig
I'cptitos und their habits, haunts und Bpootea
amounted to very littlo. Piatt wna a mc-
dlum-slzod man, rather slim, with! iho rcuus
"oi-aclicr" written alt ovor lua jolly fnce.
lio generally dressed in an odd fashion;
wtth pantaloons mado of dressed alligator*
sliin- nud a hunting shirt oruoutof panthav-;
okin beautifully tanned. Ho was a quoor
gciiiua, and always delighted iu some daredevil act that would inuko tbo natives talk
ubout him.
Joshua and Poaco crooks, in Manateo
Comity, woro his favorite grounds, as alligators woro vory numerous there. It is
related of him that his favorite methods of
capturing tho saurians woro us follows:
Stealing, along tho bank of tho crook, ho
would watch tho wator closely for any sign
of Ida gamo. Probably he would soon notice tho air-bubbles on tho surface that denoted a 'gator's presence, aud then ho
' would sink behind something closo to tho
water's edgo and await developments.
Boon tlio black snout of tho 'gator would
rise up slowly and cautiously, hardly
raising a ripple. Then his eyes would
appear, and, if tho coast was clear uud he
Dcontod no danger, his entire body would
ri'io into sight, and ho would flout on tlio
water. Thou Piatt's opportunity would
(-nine. Ho would riso to hts feet, doff his
uoat, and as tho startled -gator would sink
tho huntor would divo head first. Soon
tho waters would bo stirred up aud a wild
commotion would show that a groat combat of somo kind was going on down thoro.
Iu a fow moments Piatt would appear,
riding triumphantly tho big 'gator, which
ho would guido to tho shore, whero it
would bo dispatched. When onco ho had
gotteu his thumbs into tho 'gator's oyes
all was plain sailing, nnd tho new aud
novel steed would bo gentle and quiet as a
donkey.
riatt is also accredited with the feat of
going into the 'gators' " front door" in
their big mud-holes and drugging them
out without so much na saying "by your
loavc." While all this is doubtless tho
remains of his exaggerated camp-firo stories, yot it is said that ho was utterly fear-
lcun, and that in his combat with tho 'ga-
tore lio would display what would seem
fi)*>',ir,rdiness to thoso not bo well acquainted With the reptile's habits. Ho has
(boo.: known, timoandtimoagain, on wagers,
to dlvo into small ponds whero 'gators were
- known to be, armed with only his big hunt*
, ing-lmifc, and kill ono beforo coming to the
uuriiico—generally by getting under them
and r.Htting up tlio belly, or else driving tho
lihifoirpio .the hilt in tho brain, just back
of t lid eyes.

abandoned 'gator-hunting, and is now on*

TO INVADE SPAIN.
Tho Bold Plan Formulated by  General
Grant lu 1874.
"Doyou know that General Grant onco
planned an Invasion of Spaiui" said a prominent army oflicor to a New York Herald reporter.
I' " It was in 1874," ho continued, " and tho
I idea grow out of tho hutohory of Ryan, tho
I filibuster leader, aud nearly one hundred of
[ hi-i followers at Santiago, Cuba.
" Tho execution of these unfortunate men
L wns a mo3t barbarous ono, for thoy were led
I out iu a hody, with pinioned arms, and coin*
I polled to kneel down in a row in front of a
I riido trench that had been dug beside a
I wall. Thoy wero thon shot and tholr bodies
I buried In tho trench. The affair caused in-
I tenso excitement and horror, und had not
LSpnin mado reparation thoro would undoubtedly have boon a war.
"General Grant was President at tho
I time, and ho mado ovory preparation for
I hostilities in tho oventof Spain refusing tho
I demands of tho United States Government.
"Hosont for Lioutonant-Gouornl Sheri-
l-i-in and tendered him tho command of an
I expeditionary forco ho intended wising,
I should tho necessity arise, and Major-Gcu-
l.oral Georgo C. Hondo was solectcd as Sbor-
lidan'sehiof of staff.
1 ,"Tho proparationB wont on so far that
■Mcado offered mo  n staff appointment,
■ which I accepted, and thus becamo fumiliar
■ with Grant's plans,
■• He intended to isauo a call for ljO,Q)
■veterans of tho civil war, both Federal ami
■Confederate, and tho officer*) woro to be
■ueicctcd from tho largo number wc know
Iwmild offer their servleea. This army of
■fci.CGl) men was to bo mobilized hi tlio uoigti-
Ilorhood of Now York, and a ileet prepared
■to carry It across the Atlantic in two dlvis*
■ions, Tho idea was to pretend ib for service
Ir. i tho island of Cuba, but really to land
Ion tho shores of Spain nud march inland te
■Madrid. JJoth Grant and Sheridan deemed
■the movement a feasible ono, and hod tho
■United States declared war it would have
|iocn attempted.
" Thoro woro two reasons for carrying
bho war into Spain.  The American navy
Mild not compete with that of Spain, and
Irani wanted to mako tho war a brief and
■risive ono.  Evory Genoral who had been
kn formed of tho part ho was te take was
Riithusiastic ovor tho programme, and nono
[doubted Sheridan's genius te mako it sue-
(ccisoful. Tho English ure talking about an
jiiivaalon, yet It Is not genorally known
lulu : ".l how near Spain camo te having an
■American army landed on its coast and
[pn-. '..ed forward to Madrid.  Ouo of thoso
.layft suoli an expedition will cross tho At*
|lu'.i i', for it would bo safer for tho United
fetatcs to iuvado than to wait for iuva-
felon."	
ELASTICITY OF  LAW.
blow nn Albany lawyer Secured a Verdict
In His Favor.
A recant incident, related by tho Albany
f (N. Y.) journal, pretty well 1111131111108 tho
lolaaiioily nnd resources of tho law. A gen-
Itlomnn bought nt auction an alleged brick
I house for $11,000, paying $300 down. Tho
I samo evening ho was Informed by friends
I that it was not a genuine brick house, buta
"veneered'' ono—that Is, a frame house
I with a ninglo thickness of brick outsido.
I Ho consulted Lawyer A as soon asposal-
I Wc, and tbo lawyer secured an injunction
L restraining tho auctioneer from paying
I over tho (SOO to the seller and then brought
| suit to recover tho $300 and 81,000 damages.
[ Lawyor I), representing tho seller of tbo
[ hot.i'o, looked Into the matter, consulted
I one or two architects, and became sutlsllod
[ that ho had no caso; that Lawyor A wns
| right In claiming that tho houso was not
| brick, and that a fraud hod beon committed
1 ln selling it for a briok houso, Ho there-
1 foro. compromised with Lawyor A by ro*
turning tho $800. The auctioneer was un-
L ablo to collect his commission from tho
f" Duller, tho latter claiming that ho bad in-
i' struetod tho auctioneer to sell tho houso
f for what It was, and had not authorized him
I te soil it as a briok houso. Tho auctioneer
[ then consulted Lawyor A to see if he could
| nid him. "But you advertised and sold the
[ houao as a brlok house!" "Yes." "Then,
} if wo can prove It was a briok houso I
think v/o can recover." replied Lawyor A.
[ He lookod around and found two or threo
builders who wero willing to testify that it
J was a brick house, Tho foundutlou and
I basement woro brick. Ho then brought
' suit to rocovor tho W5 commission, Lawyer
I JJ again representing tho seller. At tho
i trial Lawyor A was on hond with several
I witnesses to prove that tho houao was n
, brlok one. Luwyor U was not prepared for
I this lino of attack by A, and had no wit-
I ucHsoa on hand to rebut Idm, and A secured
a Judgment for tho t .5 with costs.

It. ('. AM Right,
The experience of Australia is held
up as a warning to British Columbia
not to introduce tho rabbit pest. That
the rabbit is not always successful,
with his progeny, in taking possession
of the land is shown by a Vancouver
Island paper relating "an instance
where a well-known stock raiser, who
until recontly lived within thirty milea
of Nnnaimo, somo little timo back,
placed several couples of rabbits upon
his rango. Tho reason he assigned fur
su doing wns that they would on occasion make an agreeable ndditiou to
his larder. Fortunately fur stuck
raicer and stock, both eagles and mink
concluded that rabbits would prove an
agreeable change from fish or young
lambs. In a few months the rabbits
were killed off."—-JSmpire,
So .Hore Salmon Exports,
The increase in the express rates un
fresh Gallium shipments to eastern
pointsi hns already borne bad results,
and it now seems probable thnt the
large trade which has been so difficult
to establish will be completely killed.
Yesterday Mr. Vianen received the
following despatch from Hunt, Barnes
& Co., uf Montreal, who are probably
the largest tish dealers in tho Dumiti-
ion: "If oxprets company advances
rates cancel all shipments, sure." Tliis
is the lirst order cancelling the season's
contract, but it will not, by any means,
be the last. Tho tieh exporters havo
only one opinion on the advance in
ratos. "It will kill all shipments to
points oaBt of Calgary," said Mr. E.
H. Port. "The advance simply means
tho deathblow of tho Balmon export
trado," says Mr. W. H. Vianoit. Tho
old rates wero enormous- and an outrageous overcharge, but with (10 pel-
cent, added to them it looks an if tho
C. P. Pn. wns either tired of carrying
fish or wished to "gobble up" the
prolits of both the fishermen and the
dealer.

gquaulib Charley Capture-!.
Information was roceived yesterday
afternoon by the police to tho effect
that Charley Brown, alias Squamish
Charley, the Indian wanted fur attempting tu murder a kloochman, was
iu hiding with a number ot Indians at
a point about 5 miles up tho river.
Constable Dominy was detailed to capture the fugitive, and immediately
loft, by canoe, for the camp. On arriving at the place indicated the constable proceeded quietly to the tent iu
which Charley was supposed to be hiding, and there the Indian was found.
So surprised was Charley that it was
aome aeuonds before he could realize
that he had been found out, and beforo he had time to recover Constable
Duminy sprang forward and fixed the
bracelets un htm. Some 50 Indians
were in the camp, but, though they
muttered a great deal and threw many
ds.rk looks on the constable, did not
interfere, and allowed tho prisoner to
be removed without making nny de-
decided demonstration. The feat was
a courageous one on the constable's
part, and required considerable nerve
to ruccosBfully carry out.-
The surrey Dyk'nic Schemes
At the meeting of the Surrey couucil at the town hall, on Wednesday
last, the 29th inst., a potition was presented from the settlers ou Iho Serpentine River, requesting the council
to take stops at onco to have the Surrey dyking entorpr.se undertaken
without delay. The council passed n
resolution to tako immediate steps
towards that end and to have the necessary by-laws drafted as soon as pus*
sible.
Hon. John Robson, provincial secretary, was present, and after the
council had adjourned an informal conference was held on the dyking question. Between «,0 and -10 of those interested in the dyking scheme were
present, nnd tho provincial secretary
addressed the meeting, nnd snid he
had no doubt but what the government would assist the scheme nt least
to the extent to which the dyking
scheme would benefit the roads in thu
vicinity.
This benefit will be considerable, as
there are four roads, the Semiahmoo,
McLellnn, Coast Meridian, and Yale
roads, that will receive much advantage from the construction of the pro*
posed dyke. On tho different roads
mentioned thore is n total length of 8
miles subject to an overflow in the
winter season of from 1 lo 4 feet,
which tho dyke will keep thoroughly
dry.
Tho provincial secretary also intimated that work would commence immediately on the Scott and Kirkland
roads and the Semiahmoo trail, with
the purpose of putting the continuous
stage and mail route from Weitmin*
iter to the boundary in a thoroughly
passable condition,
Mr. John Sprott, government inspector of roads for this district, was
nlso at tho Surrey mooting with the
provincial secretary.
On Saturday, the 8th of June, a
meeting of settlors interested in tho
dyking scheme, will be held at the
Surrey town hall, at 10 o'clock a. tn.,
to draft the papers required fur taking
immdiate steps for constructing the
dyko, and the Surrey council will meet
at 1 p. m. on tho same day, to tako
the necessary action in the matter.
Police Conrt.
Peter Adair, oharged with supplying
intoxicants to an Indian named
Uhatley Brown, alisa Squamish Charley, pleaded not guilty. Testimony
was adduced which proved that Adair
hud furnished the liquor to Charley.
Fined $50 and costs or in default two
monthi in gaol with hard labor.
Charley Brown, alios Squamish
Charley, charged with attempting tu
murder two kloochmen, pleaded not
guilty. The evidence adduced wns
similar to that printed in Thb CotPM-
bian concerning the case. He was
committed for trial nt the next assizes.
SHE BIDES THE DEEP.
Bncceuhil   Launch or Ibe finest Tug
lhat FlotttH lu Brlilih Culiim-
bla. Waters.
Lato yesterday afternoon the word
wus passed round that tho line new
tug, whioh has beon in process of
building at the Royal City Mills Co'b
shipyard for soveral months, wns to be
launched. It was uunuunced that tho
launching would tako placo at high
tide, about 8 o'clock, and at thut hour
a crowd of several hundred people had
gathered along the shore to witness
tho event. The faco of tlie iIvor was
covered with small craftapd tlio company's tugs Gipsy, Belie und Stella
lay off shore waiting to welcome their
sister tu her homo on tho deep. Sitting ou tho ways, tho vessel looked a
model of neatness, presenting beautiful lines and indicating in i: very feature the highest skill in the shipbuilding art. At hor mast head floated
proudly the Dominion ensi-iii, but no
other decorations wero visible. At 8
o'clock Mayor Hendry, president of
tho Royal City Mill Company, und n
number of frionds, went aboard, and
the ordor was given to knock away the
blocks. This was promptly dune, and
ui the fine vessel slipped gracefully
intuits native element, Mayor Hendry broke the traditional bottle of wino
over her bow and christened her the
"Active." Cheer after oheer went up
from tho crowd ss tho, Active Blruck
the water, uud the steamboat whistles
shrieked out a glad welcome ut tho
same time.
The dimensions of tho Active tiro as
follows: Length over all, 120 feet;
length of keel 110 feet; breadth of
beam 21 feet; depth of hold 11 ft. 8
in. The engines, which are being
manufactured nt tho company's machine shops, will bo triple expansion
and of 300 horse power. Tho boiler
is being built of steel and will weigh
17 tons. It will carry a pressure of
100 lbs. of steam to the squaro inch.
The total weight of the machinery
when all is aboard, will bo 40 tons.
Tho Active will bb used in
connection with tho Royal City Planing Mills to tow timber rnfts, booms
and vessels. She is without exception
the staunchest tug afloat in Pacifio
waters, nnd it'is expected she will also
prove ono of tho fastest. Mr. Patrick
Desmond, a practical shipbuilder lately from Mirimichi, N. B., had charge
uf the building of the vessel. He has
good reason to feel proud of the success he attained, nnd the Royal City
Milla Cu. have also good reason to be
proud uf this latest addition to their
already large fleet.
DR. ORMISTON'S LECTURE.
"Everybottj's Hchool-or Man lhe Pupil
of Mankind," nt HI. Andrew's
Church Last Night.
A large audience had assembled at
tho Presbyterian church last night by
8 o'clock. The eminent divine and
lecturer of tho evening waa introduced
in a few appropriate und eulogistic remarks by thu chairman, Rev. Mr.
Scouler, Dr. Ormiston, who was evidently nut in hia usual good voice and
form, owing to tho fatigues of travel*
Hug und much speaking, and to a slight
cold, acknowledged tho kind remarks
of Rev, Mr. Scouler on introducing
him, and paid a high personal tribute
to thut gentleman, whom ho had
known particularly well iu the east,
and trusted that God would bless his
labors an abundantly in this Iub new
field ns Ho had done in Hamilton. Dr.
Ormiston then proceeded with Iub very
able, eloquent und interesting lecture,
occupying over an hour and speaking
rapidly at that. Our apace will not
enable us to give more than a summary: It is a trite saying that the
study of mankind is man. Individual
man, when compared with an assembly, or with tho universe itself, appears unimportant and insignificant.
The Psalmiflt felt this strongly when
he said. "When I behold Thy heavens,
* * * what is man that Thou nrt
mindful of him V But in our felt
nothingness revelation mid science
alike come to our rescue. David says
again, "I am poor und needy, yet the
Lord tbinketli upon me." Science
teaches that each man is an integral
and compotent part of a great whole,
Man is an inseparable part of the universe; he not only came from the dust,
but he is fostered by the dust, and his
bodj* returns to the dust. To all organized creatures he stands still closer
related. AU nature exists fur him.
To men—to all men—he is linked by
the bonds of a common brotherhood.
But it wns not uf the wide and manifold aspects of the subject the lecturer
proposed to treat, but rather our common humanity und our relations to
oach othor. Mankind was evidently
appointed as the tutor of man; that is,
each man is the pupil ot mankind. The
ouo is influenced by the many. Man
was not made to live alone. Tho life
of a hermit was not natural. The ■
Creator declared thst it is not good for
man to be alone, and made him a helpmeet, and said the lecture, "1 am
really glad God did not send a brother
man." One can neither bo nor do his
best unices he fulfills the varied social
relations of his nature, Sefishness is
suicidal. Do not forget it, said the
lecturer, when you are tempted to take
more than your share of God's good
gifts, Tho seeming advantago of selfishness is but temporary, Private
wrong can be no ingredient in public
right. Whatever would be wrong for
an individual can not be right for
society. The special forms which
society may assume had their origin in
popular needs, but society itself is divine. The co-existenco of men and
families of men is u necessary condition
of life and responsibility. Association
among men is not a casual circumstance, but an established law. In
order to form a just conception of man
we must see him in the relatione which
socioty brings to bear upon him. By
living alone man would very sood become utterly unfit for living at all. Occasional solitude, however, is of un*
speakable mural value. The greatest
of all teachers has said, "Enter into
thy closet and shut thy door. The
grandest spirits that over Uved have
girded themselves for their work in
profoundest sileuco. Here the speaker
instanced, in glowing descriptive,
Moses, Elijah, David, Paul, Luther,
Mahomet, King Alfred, Columbus,
Washington and others. All kingly
men nre crowned in solitude nnd ordained in silence. But it is but thu
prelude and the preparation for the
sphore which they nre called upon to
till. Society multiplies, intensifies
and prolongs our joys and divides our
sorrows. First in order and importance of the forms which society exhibits, said tho lecturer, fi the family.
It ii the nursery of virtue, tho home of
piety, the palladium of our liberties.
Here tho lecturer drew n graphic pie*
ture of tho homo bs it should be,
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
I where love ruled, and on the other
band showed how painful was the picture presented by a loyelesB home.
Yet each wns a most potent centre of
influence for good or for evil. Dr.
Ormiston paid a most touching tribute
to Ihe mother lovo, and recited feelingly a pathetic Scotch poem entitled
"The Motherless)Bairn." How desolate and how lono was tho condition of
the orphan, said the speaker; hence
God had given special promises to the
orphan, and wob lieto the man that
Binned against the orphan. Maternity
made the mother grander than the
woman; fatherhood made the father
grander than man. The leoturer thon
viewed the larger sphere of the social
circle, and condemned unsparingly
some uf its shams, while showing its
necessity and usefulness, The work*
shop was the next manifestation uf
society. 10 very one was or should be
engaged in some avocation, Idleness
was u terrible enne. Very few were
injured by overwork, but a countless
multitude were ruined by idleness. In
the field of labor and industry of brain
and muscle society was divided into
two nlasses—master and servant. The
way in which a man did hiB part in
either of these capacities was a test of
the mnn. Tho market was another
great social institution. Commerce
might be said to be most emphatically
the "schoolmaster abroad." All business transactions have a moral as well
as a monetary influence. Publio opinion was the widest and largest expression and manifestation of society, and
it exercised a tremendous influence
upon Bociety and upon individuals,
sometimes for good and sometimes for
evil. Tho leoturer closed with a direct
and stirring appeal to his audience. By
what you are and by what you are not,
said the speaker, you have been writ*
ing your lives in the lives of others.
Live so that tho world shall bo the
better and the brighter for your living,
and bo that whon you come to stand
before the Great White Throne those
whom you influenced on your earthly
sojourn will bless instead of curse
your example
A hearty vote of thanks, moved by
Mr. J. S. Olute, was tendered the
reverend lecturer by the congregation
rising.
Dr. Ormiston responded by saying
thnt he was grateful to tho audienco
fur thoir sympathy and attention,
and would feel amply rewarded if
his lecturo did his hearers any lasting good.
The* doctor invited all who had
known him in former days in the
east to remain and havo a friendly
werd,%nd quite a number did so and
had a pleasant chat with the affable
divino.
