81s., New Westuilitstfr.    tlwmliloic
United Stntes senators continue
to make make n fuss about the opposition of tlie C. P. R. to their
trimscoiitinentol roads, and declare
that tlio "injustice" must be "remedied," They will lind, however,
that a sufficient remedy is neither
easily found nor readily applied.
Oanada has the beat and shortest
route, and it takes more than
senate resolutions to get over that
fact. ■
.. A coiiiiittee of congress, some
little time ago, reported in favor of
giving an inventor $75,000 to assist
him in constructing a steel vacuum
balloon. The theory is that a balloon with absolutely nothing inside
of it, will he light enough to carry a
pretty heavy load, A member of
congress who probably believed that
the most noticeable vacuum in this
case would be in tho treasury, asked
a scientiSo man to "figure" on the
project, and the verdict is, that a
steel globe strong enough to withstand the pressure of the air outside
after all the air. had been removed
from the inside, would be unable to
lift even its own weight, So
another grand scheme comes to the
ground—or rather, refuses to leave it.
They have got the" biggest thing
out of jail" in the way of seaside
fun, near Bridgeport, Conn. It ia
simply a summer toboggan slide, in
which rollers are used to give the
necessary slipperiness, just as our
B. 0. lumbermen substitute oiled
skids for the snow over which logs
are hauled in the. eastern provinces.
Any toboggan can be used, though
a specially designed one is best. The
lower end of the slide is in the sea,
so that the proper rig for the sport
is a bathing suit Thus clad, you
get aboard your toboggan, swoop
down the sixty yards of slide with
a quickly accelerating,, breathless-
rush, souse into the water with a
grand splash, and go ricocheting
along, like a flat pebble, for a hundred yards or so—then you can
swim ashore.
Speaking ih opposition to the tisheries treaty, the other day, Senator
Sherman gave expression to sentiments in strong contrast with tbe
tail-twisting haranjues of some of
his fellow members. True, he talked
a little "manifest destiny," but he
did it quietly j and there wars a distinctly statesmanlike ring about his
declaration that English speaking
peoples whether united or dividedpo-'
litically, had a common mission in
the cultiuation of the arts of peace,
and the advancement of liberty and
enlightenment in the world, and.
should therefore be oareful to maintain the most cordial relations with
each other. He opposed the treaty
because it would, in his opinion, be
a source and cause of constant irritation, and not a settlement of existing disputes.
The inarch of modem progress is
creating a new order of things in
Palestine, A railway is in course
of construction from Jaffa to Jerusalem, and Jaffa itself—modernised
beyond recognition — is becoming
again, as it was of old, "the beautiful," being to a large extent rebuilt,
well cleaned and lighted, and having
the whole surrounding country one
vast orange grove. They have even
it real estate boom there—land in
the vicinity, wo read, is not to be
bought at any price. Other places
have made great progress. The
ancient Shechem is a busy mu*_»-
fnctuvinB.town, mnlt-in.ij openialties
of soap and boots; Bethlehem is a
nent little town, with substantial
glass windowed houses, well paved
streets, and a good system of street
lighting. Jerusalem, too, is losing
much of its oriental character mid
becoming quite a modern, and n
cosmopolitan, city, while outside
tlie walls of tho old oity a new one
is rising fast.
Tho Port Angeles (W. T.) Com-
monwealt/i has the following really
amusing paragraph:-—"Several days
ugo a buck Indian living about 100
yards from tliis office committed
'matrimony in true Siwash style.
His bride is remarkably pretty mid
he paid to her father $100 for her,
that beiug prehaps the highest price
ever paid for a liko article here.
The usual prioo is about $2S, and
fW is considerered enough for many.
Tlio ceremony consisted in all the
Indians in the neighborhood coming
together and drinking from a two
gallon jug, nn amber liquid whieh
superinduced li ts of mental abbera-
tion and caused each buck to flog
his squaw handsomely, Occasionally two sijuaws disagreed and went
at it hammer antr^tWlg«""'At the
' of three or foilr days the jug
was empty, the squaws were sufficiently tamed and the happy .couple
were considered married." This will
not compare unfuvom'ily with some
of the orgies of the in ble red man's
"whito brother."

Washington, Aug. 8.—In the senate
to-day the debate on the fisheries
treaty was resumed by Mr. Evarts,
who took Ihe floor in opposition tp it.
Mr. Evarls discussed at preat length
the details of the treaty and tho whole
history of the fisheries controversy.
He declared that the system of worrying was always brought into play by
Canada whenever the United States
asserted its fishing rights and Canada
asserted its contravention in order to
bring the United States to a departure
from its fishing interests to tlioso of
trading and commercial interests and
tbat the United States hod thus been
worried into a reciprocity arrangement
in 1854. He said that at every stage
when the Dominion of Canada had undertaken to enforce the buy or headlands doctrine ihe British government
had declined to sustain it. What
Canada had always beon after was reciprocity and a free market. After Mr.
Evarts had spoken for two hours he
postponed the remainder of his speech
until to-morrow on account of the
heat. After a few minutes in secret
session the senate adjourned.

Considerable interest is now being
manifested by the publio, both on
Puget Sound and British Columbia,
over the New Westminster, Relling-
hain Bay and Seattle railroad, to he-
completed within two years from this
date. The line in Washington territory was conceived by Hon. Eugene
Canfield, of Aurora, Illinois, about
livo yean ago. He procured the passage through congress of an act granting the Bellingham Bay Railway i£
Navigation Oo, the right to pass over
public lands and crossnavigablestreams
emptying into Puget sound, The New
Westminster Southern railway charter,
to build from Westminster city south
to tbe Amerioan boundary, to connect
with the Canfield road, was pushed
through the provincial parliament of
British Columbia by citizens of Westminster, who were anxious to have
railroad connection with Puget sound,
to compete with the Canadian Pacifio
railroad in passenger and freight traffic. The present line, known as the
New Westminster, Bellingham Bay &
Seattle railroad, is the outgrowth or
consolidation of the above two lines to
make the connection across the boundary, which will give a continuous line
of railway from Seattle north across
the Snohomish and Nooksaok rivers,
touching at Whatcom, on Bellingham
bav, thence to Westminster.
The Canadian Pacifio railroad has
heretofore opposed this connection, but
the repeal of what is known as the
monopoly clause in the Canadian Paoific railroad charter permits tbe connection as now projected, and tbe
people along the line of the proposed
railroad are anxious for the construction of the line because it will open and
develop rich coal and iron mines located on the Skagit river, and bring to
market the millions of valuable fir lumber along the route.
On Saturday last this railroad company acquired absolute titlo to what is
known as the Connor coal and iron
mines, located on the Skagit river, 14
miles above Mount Vernon, about
1000 acres, and are now perfecting
title to about 3,000 aores of land adjacent, covering the same veins. The
coal and iron lie side by side along the
line of tbe railroad, and an assay of the
same, made by Maj. W. A. Jones at
the Portland reduction works; may be
of interest to people who deal with
abstract facts and details instead of
sweeping statements.
As carbon is the basis from which
the value of coal is judged, the following comparative statement may show
the aotual worth of this Conner field,
when sized up with other working
veins on Puget sound; Conner mines,
81 per cent, carbon; Bennett mine
(also on Skagit river), 09 per oent. carbon; Wilkeson mine, near Tacoma,
07 per cent, carbon; Wellington ooal,
00 per cent.; Black Diamond, 60 per
cent.; South Prairie, 02. The Conner
vein is from throe to five feet thiek
and pilches into the earth at a dip of
from 25 to 40 degrees. The coal seam
can be traced along the surface for a
distance of twonty tour mf].., ..A ,
seems inexhaustible A tunnel, driven
into the base of a hill 2,400 feet below
the outcropping of the vein, strikes
tho ooal, and several other test tunnels
indicate that tho cnal can be mined
easily and economically. Black Die-
niond coal brings about $12 per ton in
the San Francisco market and costs
about $4 to mine nnd ship, thus leaving a profit to the operators of about
$8 per ton net cash. As tho Skagit
or Conner coal is better in quality and
as inexpensive to mine and ahip, it is
ensy to see that there is somo foundation for a railroad company to rest
upon, even were those coal mines the
only resources from whieh to draw..
But the rich iron lode also purchased
from tho Conner oompany by thit New
Westminster, Bellingham Bay & Seattle railroad, promises equally rich returns. The iron lode is from fourtoen
to eighty-five feet in width, and assays,
according to nn estimate made by
Major Jones, from 40 to 06 per cent,
pure iron. Tho low percentage of
phosphorus found in this ore increases
the value of the iron, because the
presence of phosphorus in metal militates against the manufacture of steel.

I   A'&UjfUU' 'ir gsiiln British Columbian
Thursdar Eveutng. Ane. a.
The Montrol iritoess is deserving
sis of credit for;its well meant enterprise in employing a special corres-'
pon^entilo visit the scene, of the
Skeena Indian trouble in this province. In its weekly issue of August
1st it exhibits a map of the northwest coast of British Columbia, embracing the priuoipal Indian settle-
meuts from Alaska to. the southern
end of Queen Charlotte's Island,
The information giyen in tho IKiVness,
although not new to British Columbians; whp have often heard of the
difficulties amongst tlie Indians on
the Northwest coast of this province, presents a brief but comprehensive view of the true state of
the Indian difficulties and their
probable cause or causes. The people
of llritish Columbia generally have
paid very little attention to the roports lhat at times appeared with
regurd to the troubles betweeu the
various tribes of Indians themselves
and the jealousies that have existed
between the missionaries who have
lierrn engaged in the work of Christian civilization among the benighted'
red men. Nobody has any right to
lilnnle the missionaries for the apparent dangerous discontent found
to exist amongst the Indians, according to the report of tho late
commission sent by the joint action
of the Dominion and provincial governments. While it may lie true
that the teaching and training by
the seemingly antagonistic missionaries may have produced a conflicting state of things, and a feeling of
insubordination in the minds of the
partially civilized and Christianized
natives, yet the missionaries are not
directly chargeable with the seemingly deplorable state of things
found there at present. It would
uppear, however, to be a deplorable
fuel that the missionaries liave not
set a good example of peace and
good-will before the natives. In
their native shrewdness they must
have beeu puzzled to understand
why God-sent teaohers did not practice more towards one another that
good-will and brotherly love which
their professed mission indicated. It
must be acknowledged that the example furnished by some of the
manifestations of bad feeling between
the various representatives of Christianity on the northwest coast of
British Columbia has not been with
out its bad eli'ect upon the native
tribes. But the chief blame for this
state of things at present must be
laid at the doors of the provincial
and Dominion governments, especially the provincial government,
which deals more directly with the
Indians as to civil jurisdiction. Tbe
Indians.no doubt,have been educated
up in this matter. The fact of the
matter seems to be that the spiritual
*■ tfrrichcrs amongst the Indians were
allowed to both teach and govern at
will. The local government was
only too glad to shirk the responsibility'of governing, nnd loft the field
to tlie spiritual teacher and the
worldly adventurer, who has not
Wen slack to introduce other kinds
of " spirits," which the Indians
themselves have often protested
it-ruinst.
spectively in 1871 and in 1881.
The former shows these figures:
males, 1,704,311; females, 1,721,450;
total, 3,485,761, The latter, males,
2,188,778; females, 3,136,0.12; total,
4,$4,810. Itrwill be seeii that the'
last figures represent the total popu
lation ofthe Dominion inW881,
when the last Official census was
compiled. The noxt census, in 1801,
will probably show a very inm-keu
increase of population. A gratifying feature in connection with tlie
figures quoted above, to old bachelors
especially, is the admirably adjusted
equality in point of numbers between the sexes. No hapless bachelor, unless insufferably ugly in disposition and feature, need despair of
doubling his joys and his sorrows in
" this Canada of ours " so long as
such praiseworthy and equitable arrangements continue with regard to
tho distribution of the sexes. The
years 1882,1883, and 1884 show the
largest immigration returns of any
year since 1868, being credited with
over 100,000 each. Last year Ihe
immigration amounted to 84,526,
and for the two years previous a
few thousands less. The revenue
for 1868 is put at 613,687,928; expenditure, $13,486,092. For last
year the revenue was '$35,764,1)93,
and' the. expenditure $35,657,680.
The table shows a fairly steady increase in revenuo and expenditure
since tho year brst mentioned to the
present time. In 1871 there were
17,335, 818 acres of land under cultivation in. tho Dominion; in 1881,
at the last census, 21,899,181. The
number of postofiices in 1868 is given
as 3,638; in 1887, 7,534. The
shipping has increased in the last
twenty years as follows: inward
vessels, 8,038 to 13,203; outward,
7,978 to 12,347. Imports for the
same period have increased from
$73,459,644 to $112,892,236; exports, $57,567,888 lo $89,515,811.
The gross debt in 1808 footed up
$96,896,666; assets, $21,138,531; net
debt, $75,757,135. In 1887 the
figures were, respectively, $273,187,-

-■r {Copyright im.) •;
The otyier day I noticed a sligjitlytrailt,
Imt diet-faced plan in needy clothes and
r. weatheivworn straw, hiit loiiasins.Jh
tlio stately gateway oftho great Mills
liuilding on Broad street. Ho scorned to
Imvo nothiug to dp but to gaze listlessly
nt tho bustling scene of hurrying brokers,
derks and messengers and the long lino
ot cabs stretching from the Stock Exchange for a block or •moro.dow-ui-.tba-
street. ^/-'
"Ho you know who that isP' asked a
'imminent broker.
"No."
"His namo Is Baldwin. Ho was onco
Colonel of a regiment and was groomsman for Governor Siiruguo of Rhode
Island when ho was married .to Kato
Chose, tho daughter of Chief Justice
Chase. He used to bo connected iu business- down hero with his brother, Barney
Baldwin, one of the swells oi'tlie Tuxedo
Park Club."   . ....  ,-      .■
ltwas a new Illustration of tho dramatic vicissitudes tbat como to men la
Wall street. Onco this mnn who is dependent upon tbe bounty of relatives or
friends whom ho does not hesitate 'to accost for petty "loans" waa a handsome
man and so prominent ia society that he
wns the best man nt tho WGckling of a
governor to a beMitifttlawl'tlfcUiigj^ehed
woman. But-though he is now only
nbout 45 he lookB ten-years old er';" thefaco
is sallow and pinched anil pimply, suggesting something of which tho sacred
writer of old said, "at the Inst itstingeth
like nn adder."
Govornor Sprogue himself fell/r-bm hia
rociiil estate partly through midno addiction to tho wino cup, quarreled with
Ids wife, became insanely jealous of her
p.ud threatened to shoot the lato Roscoo
Conkling, who was thu legal adviser of
tlio daughter of his life-Ion*;-; friend, the
Chief Justice. Spraguo was a rather j>Ic*.
hiresqucflgure in tho early daysoCthowar,
but nny illusion as to his-personality or
t,Y!u*-ir>n as to Ids capaoity for public life
wai soon dispelled nnd with Mm his old
cronies stepped down to tluiir natural
level. The brother of Governor Sprague's
old fellow roisterer, Baldwin, was *it one
timo a stock broker iu pnituqi'-ihipwitU a
i at her bright fellow named Draper. The
late millionaire operator, Baron W.oorlsh-
i Her, met Draper ouo night down at
Long Branch before the young fellow
had ever dreamed of beuoiaiug ft stook
broker on his own account, ahd said: ...,*,•
"Draper, why don't you go iuto bus*
Iness in Wall street!-"
"Why, I haven't money enough to buy
a seat in the Stock I-.xuhnugc," was tho
answer. .icu-ci
. "Oh, if that is tho 'trouble,'/ said the
r perator— who had accumulated ton 'mil-
! ions in daring stock campaigns—-^11 that
im all the troublo Iwill buy you a seat myself."
lio did. ltwas not the moro effusive
talk of a champagne supper to bu coldly
tgnuied tho next ilav u-iii'it tlio blood was
Icsb heated. Baron \Vbei*i_hoa.cr actually bought a scat in tlio Stock Kxch'ango
for thirty thousand dollars and presented
It, to tho partner of Barney llaldwiu, who
' i well known in New York society,while
hla brother onco a Colonel and a-linnd-
*--.*>mo beau in another social world seems
to play the -rolo of Lanarus at-iho rich*
.'.i.-ui'sgato.
There are queerer contrasts than thii
in New York business life.  One of th.
I'tosb prosperous brokers ln the city allows his old father to black boots for a
living.  He makes no denial of the fact
1 nt says that tho old man is not fitted
for any other work.and is better cjh-
' ployed than idle. Tho broker Uiuuelt
I used to be a bootblack nnd rose by sheer
' forco of character and native Qcrujwi
ihrewdneai.
1    Charles Lamb's devotion to hlsincano
1 lister was one of those instances of self-
f abnegation which aro as a silver lining to
\ the darker and moro sinister traits of hu-
' man nature, but it is, perhaps, more than
[ riM.alled in some respects byan instanco
^ )f mi-selfish devotion ou tho part of a man
[' 1 a one of the Institutions near New York
such as is rare outsldo of tho pages of
i Pet ion.   It Is the caso of a man and wife.
" They lived happily together, bnt by ono
Luf those strange visitations of fate, tho,
I happy wife became insane. Cases ara not
l rare where n husband has shown devotion
I to nn Insane wife.  Thero are others in
I which the husband hns sought to play the -
|role of Mr. Rochester in "Jano Eyre,"
nnd ignore a tie which ha speciously
t argued had boen sundered by a a crake of
I fate, though in most, if not all, of our
rotates, at least, Insanity subsequent to
wnnrriago is regarded as a disease, aud no
Ti norc a ground for divorce than consump-
|tion or any other nilment. But in this
baso tho husband forsook his homo In
l.Wflw York, whero he had lived on a small
j ucoino recolved from wealthy parents in
r.,..iirope,aud sought nnd secured a position
Ths bookkeeper In thoworkhouso close by
|i!io insane osylnni where his wlfo was
iifined, receiving uo salary for his sor-
IIces, and remains thero now amid for-
L ridding surroundings Blmplythathomdy
Li! near his stricken wife, who smiles va-
M'ltly r.t him or talks wjth pathetic vola-
Tlltyand earnestness of her fixed delu-
i-ons across that dark mental gulf which
Vpimitfs the Gehenna of madness from
f iia relative Paradise of sanity.   His'only
|lniughtlsto soften the blow to his wife
? much as possible, to ameliorate as far
Ms may bo hor Bufferings, a pathetic at-
upt to make the hand of fate seero liko'
I".v.!t rather than iron. Por seven yeara
Iiiua remained faithful iu his devotion
> ids mentally dead wife, sepulchred, so
* speak, as a hopeless lunatic in .the
imotery of the mind, an lnsano asylum,
[ man uot, perhaps, endowed with the
Ipi-ilb-otual qualities which command tho
• miration of men, but illumined by tin-
1 t.«h devotion as with n sacred nimbus.

Dufferin, when Governor General, seldom went salmon fishing without Lady
Dufferin, and the Marquis of Lome,

sight of tho first Canadian salmon
stream, did not disdain the oompany of
the Princess Louise, whoso success iu
salmon fishing was heralded by all tho
Canadian papers.
