Weekly Britisli Columbian,
Wednesday Horning, July 10. 1880.
There is a nice little row between
tbe city of Toronto and the C.P.B.
Some time since the city decided to
reclaim certain low lands along the
lake shore, and an agreement was
entered into by which the new lake
front (the reclaimed land) was to be
the property of those who owned
the land inside of it—the oity being
much tlie largest owner. The city
duly applied for its patent, but the
issue of this was delayed—it is
alleged, by the influence of tho C. P.
B. That company then wont to
work to expropriate the old lake
front which belonged to the city,
and if it gets it bofore the city gets
its patent for the reclaimed (or partially reclaimed) land, it will, of
course, under the agreement, demand that the patent issue in its
favor, as the owner of the land immediately behind. It would thus,
at very small cost, gobble up a strip
i of land whicli has, by the growth
and improvement of the city of
|*' Toronto, been made about the most
valuable in  the Dominion.    The
: civic authorities declare that they
will allow neither the company nor
.' the government to rob them, and
threaten a worse than Manitoba
blizzard if the attempt is made.

concerned, and actual construction

A slight "coolness" still exists botween tho august civic board of
Vancouver aud the municipal counoil of Richmond. It will bo remembered that, several months ago, the
"terminal city" solons, without fully
realizing the enormity of their
offence, but mown} thereto, apparently, by a busty and petulant tern
per, administered what was little
less than a public slap in the face
to the RictuiKimt municipal "fathers," charging thiym, in effect, with
breach of faith in the North Arm
bridges matter. A* a matter of fact,
the Richmond council went, naturally enough, doing their utmost to
further tho construe tion of thosu
bridges, but the Vancouver aldermen
were in a bud humor ou account of
vexatious delays, and "took it out."
accordingly on the rural body. Our
readers will reoall how the offensive
Vancouver resolution was received
—or rather "not received"—by the
justly indignant grangers in council
assembled, and how the aforesaid
grangers put on their war-boots and
pulverized the"tei'minolcity"counoil.
This deserved oastigation drew from
the puissant aldermen a mildly explanatory and insinuating rejoinder,
in which they "deeply regretted"—
not their own sins, oh, no!—but the
fact that the spikes in the Richmond
war-boots were so sharp and the
boots themselves so heavy. But the
Richmond "fathers," nt their last
meeting, according to the report
published the other day in this pa
per, have no intention of relaxing
"a little bit" until the offenders are
reduced to a proper and honest
frame of mind and meekly "holler
'null'." It iB to be feared that a
perfect entente oerdiak will hardly
be resumed until all bygones are
forgotten in the ultimate completion
of the long looked for North Arm
It is satisfactoiy to note that
there are "no flies" on our oity counoil in the matter of pushing tha necessary preliminaries to actual work
on the streets and park improvements and the water works. A
glance at the report of the meeting
Wednesday will show that progress is
, being made with respect to the former two, and also that engineers
have been appointed to prepare the
design for the Ooquitlam water
works system. The appointments
themselves—Messrs. E. A. Wilmot
and A. E. Hill, O.E's, being tbe
engineers selected for this important
work—will be generally approved.
j'There was some talk, we believe, of
appointing certain outside engineers,
.but the council showed their wisdom
I* in deciding upon two of our own
engineers, who not only reside and
have their interests in this city, but
whose abilities and standing in every
respeot are well known to oar oitizens. Besides the gentlemen in
| question have already given considerable study to the various details of
the Ooquitlam water works, and are
specially qualified to direct their
construction through the several
stages to a successful iBsue. The
ratepayers and the citizens generally
have now a guarantee that the water
worki will be energetically and intelligently pushed, and  in the beat
Children Cryfor I
In one of her recent letters from
London Mrs. Ashton Dilke says:
"It is quite 'the thing' now-a-days
for our aristocracy to go into trade
—not in a backward surreptitious
sort of way, but with much self-
advertisement, and in the full light
of day. Tho hated word whioh
twenty years ago filled the refined
ear with contempt and loathing is
fast losing all its old sting, and
everybody knows at least somebody
else, 'quite in our own set, I assure
you,' who has taken to business of
one sort or another. Democracy,
women's rights, and, above all, that
dearth of ready money which is
usually described as 'bad times,'
havo ull contributed to the result.
The male aristocrats started the
movement. For several years the
Marquis of Londonderry's coal-carts
have perambulated the streets of tbe
metropolis bearing his Lordship's
name in full; the Earl of Shrewsbury's hansoms are the smartest and
swiftest in London, and quite recently the Earl of Coventry has
blossomed out into a bona-fide manufacturer of jams and pickles. Sopn
the ladies began to follow suit. If
lords may sell coals, why should not
ladies sell milk 1 And so the Duchess of Hamilton has started a most
successful dairy at Ipswich, and no
one thinks any the worse of her
Grace for doing so; while the Hon.
Mrs. Maberly presides over a daintily furnished establishment of a
similar nature somewhere in the regions of Notting Hill." Thus one
by one the wretched shams and affectations of a past age are dropping
off, and necessity and common-sense
combined enforce the true dignity of
labor for all classes. The time is
not far distant when privileged
classes themselves will cease to be
recognized in the common brotherhood of an intelligent and rational
The English are contemplating
an idea to lay down a postal tube
(between Dover and Calais. The
plan is to suspend two tubes of
about a yard eaoh in diameter by
means of steel cables across tht
channel, forty yards above the level
of the sea. The steel cables will be
fixed to pillars at distances of about
800 yards, and in eaoh tubo a little
railway will run with cars capable
of carrying 450 pounds in weight.
No parcel of greater weight than
this will be taken, and the cost is
estimated at the modest figure of $5,-

Johnstown, July 3.—The Oonemaugh Valloy is again deluged with
water. The ruin whicli began falling
last ovening still continues, and mountain streams iu many plaoes aro out of
their banks and sweeping things before
them. For a timo last night tho rami
fall was muoh heavier than that which
proceeded tlio breaking of the South
Fork dnni antl the terriblo disaster uf
May Slat. Workmen on a pile of drift
narrowly escaped drowning, and those
engaged iu removing the debris from
below the bridge were resuoed in bouts
at the junction of tho Coneinaugh
and Sumy Creek. Two immense iron
builers, belonging to the Guiltier Steel
Works, were carried away. The terrific lightning frightened the citizens
almost out nf tlieir senses, and peals of
thunder shook mountains and valleys,
causing tlie dead bodieB to como tn tho
surface of the water. In the Cono-
uiaugh three bodies were caught and
several othors floated down with the
drift. In Cambria City several houses
wero again flooded and five families
were compelled to vacate and go to the
hill,'. Tho camps occupied by tbe
workmen wero also flooded and the
men were compelled to remain np all
Cheyenne, Wyo., Jnly 3.—The
smith bound stage coaches from Lander
to Rawlins were held up and robbed
on Monday near Bougis by three road
agents. Mrs. Jones, wife of the Indian agent, and her three children
were tho only passengers on the coach.
The rubber-, compelled her to give up
all her money and valuables and the
keys to her trunk. They emptied the
trunk, taking the valuables. They
then took the mail bags, cut them
open and took theregisteredlettersand
valuables. They kept tho driver covered with a rcvnlrer until the work of
going through the mail was completed,
when they disappeared in the darkness.
Deputy Sheriff Arent, of Lander, with
20 Shoshone Indians, are ou the trail
of the robbers with a chance of catching them.
New York, July 3.—The despatches
stating that the Northern Pacific intended to issue $15,000,000 in new
bonds are confirmed at the office of tho
company hero. One of the officials
states that the plan for raising tho
money to improve the Pacific const
property and acquire additional equipment and also to tuke up the Oregon
Transcontinental bonds, has been discussed but nothing definite has been
decided on. It will probably be in
the shape of a collateral trust loan.
Lonoon, July 3.—A correspondent
of the Times telegraphs from London
an interview he had with Senor H.
Debarros Gomes, Portuguese ministor
of marine nnd of colonies, on the subject of the Delagoa Bay Rail nay con
cession. Senor Gomes says that but
for the assistance of the government
the railway company would have forfeited tho concessions long ago. He
declared that the government intended
to adhere strictly to the terms of the
concession. The government had proposed to England and to America to
submit the complaint of the company
to arbitration, and neither country had
ottered objection lo an arbitration,
being upon the basis of a clause iu the
concession. Negotiations with Eng-1
land were amicable. Everything was
going smoothly at Delagoa Bay, the
old employees of the railway company
having been retained by the government officials.
Paris, July 3.—The ohamber of
deputies held another stormy session
to-day, the excitement running high
on the proposal of the enemies of the
government to abolish the secret service fund. All shades of opposition
united their forces on this motion, and
after much wrangling aud discussion it
was finally passed by a vote of 301 to
260. The announcement of the result
was tho signal for the wildest demonstrations of joy on tho part of the opposition, while the government s adherents appeared crestfallen. The
vote is, however, devoid of the significance whioh the opposition seem disposed to attach to it, as the government did not make the retention of
the secret service fund a vital issue,
and so do not regard the vote to
abolish it as amounting to want of
Dublin, July 3.—The Philadelphia
cricketers closed their first inning
against Dublin club to-day for 177
runs, Dublin having made 289. Philadelphia in the second innings had
made 319 for six wickets, when the
play was stopped for the day.
London, July 3.—The Massachusetts rifle team shot a match to-day at
Bainham with the London Rifle Brigade team. The total score was, Americans, 1,084; Englishmen, 1,007.
Pabis, July 3.—Another terrible
colliery disaster is reported from the
district of St. Etienne. An explosion
of fire damp ocourred in one of the pits
ln which 300 miners were at work.
Their escape was completely cut off,
and there is small chance of any of
them being rescued alive. So far it is
known that 200 of the entombed
miners are dead.
Pabis, July 4.—A large number of
bodies have heen recovered from the
coal pit at St. Etienne, where the ex-
Slosion of fire damp occurred  yester-
ay.   There is no hope of finding any
of the entombed men alive.
Cairo, July 4.—Col. Wadehouse
has returned to Wada Haifa after completely routing the remainder of the
Arab force.
Brussels, July, 4.—A teleuram
from the governor-general of tlie Congo Free State says that the English
Bteamer from Liverpool, gauging 1860,
aud loading 2500 tons, wliich left Antwerp on May 8th, has ascended the
Congo as far as Matadi. The question
as to the selection of Matadi ns a starting point uf the Congo railway is thus

associated one with another, in fact,
they were now both brothers and not
fighting ono against another.
London, July 4.—King Humbert
and his sou, the Prince of Naples, recently inaugurated the ceremonies attending the work of demolishing 17,-
000 houses and 62 churches in the
most thickly settled and most squalid
parts uf the city of Naples, where narrow streets, filled with perennial filth,
breed pestilence and death. But the
real work only began yesterday when
nearly twelve thousand laborers wore
Bet to work tearing down the filthy
old rookeries in the doomed quarter.
This improvement it is expected will
take four years to complete.
Panama, July 4.—The Costa Bicau
troops are marching rapidly upon Nicaragua, and a war in which all the Central American republics may become
embroiled is expected to broak out at
any moment. It is more than possible
that the United Statos may interfere
to protect tho newly created interests
in the Nicaraguan canal. A formidable body of Costa Bican troops are
on the frontier. The trouble arises
out of the old boundary dispute between Costa Rica and Nicaragua.
New Orleans, July 4.—John L.
Sullivan and party arrived here to-day.
Kilrain ia expected to-morrow.
Charleston, S. C, July 4.—The
Manchester Ship Canal Company of
England has bought the extensive
Appleton property, consisting of

Port Boyal from England to carry
phosphates and lumber from the interior.
St. Paul, July 4.—An offer of $65,-
000 has been made by Bobt. Bonner,
of New York, for the Minnesota trotter, Axtell, who yesterday made a mile

year olds.   Tho offer was refused.
Ottawa, July 4.—Civil Engineer
B. E. Paulin has returned from Brazil where he went in the intereat of a
syndicate of Canadian and American
capitalists to report on a vast railway
project to open the south eastern section of Brazil. It is also proposed to
place a fleet of stoamers on one of the
rivers, and establish steam communication botween Para, New York and
London, July 4.—The Massachusetts rifle team won another victory today, this time defeating the Sussex
Volunteer loam at Brighton by a total
score of 988 to 910. The Volunteers
scored 328 at the 200 yards' range to
the Americans' 316, but at the 500
and 600 yards the Englishmen fell behind. The day was fine but there was
a strong wind.
London, July 4.—General Boulanger was present at the garden party at
Marlborough house to-day and met
the queen, the Prince of Wales, the ]
shah and many others of England's
most notable people. There was a
large and brilliant company. The
shah, accompanied by the Prince of
Wales and other members of the royal
family, drove to the Empire theatre
in the ovening, where a mixed programme was provided for his entertainment. The decorations of the
theatre were most superb in honor of
the shah and were provided by Banker
SaBBoim at his own expense.
Boston, July 4.—The programme
of the city government for the celebration of the 4th was practically the
same as in former years. The principal event of the day was the rowing
regatta on Charles river. The professional single skull race was three
miles, rowed by Teemer, Plaisted aud
Kennedy, McKay, Teneyckand P. B.
Conley. Teemer had the inside position and led from the start to the

Shawmuts, composed of J. J. Casey,
J. M. Casey, Patrick and William
Oonley, wero second. Mickalls defeated Protta by twelve lengths.
New York, July 5.—The Mail and
Express London coi'rt'spondenco tays
there can bo no question about the
popularity of the Prince of Wnlea with
the masses. He is greeted with applause wherever he shows himself,
and the mere announcement that he is
to be at a certain place at a certain
time draws a crowd. An instance of
this occurred recently. The Times
and some of the old daily papers printed a couplo of lines to the effect that
the prince would lunch with the Lord
Mayor of L-'tidoh. It was on Saturday. As I passed down from tho
Bank of England 1 saw a great crowd
in front of the Mansion Houso. It
was almost impossible for busses or
carriages to proceed through lhe streets.
A big forco of London hoodies tried tu
keep the crowd in order, and every
window in the neighborhood had its
occupant. The crowd had stood in
front of the Mansion House tin hour
previous to the prince's arrival. Whon
he alighted from his carriage he was
greeted with cheers, and for three
hours the crowd sweltered in the hot
sun until lunch was over, and the
prince drove off amid great cheering.
London, July 5.—Senor Candida
D'Moras, who was referred to in a letter to the Times on Mondny last as the
lending spirit in the syndicate which
has been formed for the purpose of acquiring the possession of the Delagoa
railway, declares that the whole story
is a wilful fabrication, and that the
enterprise in question is purely commercial in its nature. Although he is
a peer of Portugal, ho has, he says, no
political influence whatever, and has
been in no sense a go-between for the
Portuguese snd Transvaal governments. He admits that a syndicate
haB been formed, but asserts it is a
perfectly fair and honest piece of business, without any prejudice to the
English or any other people.
London, July 5.—The Governor of
Tripoli has issued a decree abolishing
the slave trade, and imposing severe
penalties on any one engaging in it.
Pabis, July 5.—The Sieele denies
that M. Queenay D'Beaurpaire, pro-
cureur-general, has refused to prosecute Gen. Boulanger snd iB about to
resign. The same paper deniea also
that dissensions have arisen iu the
cabinet, and M. Thevenet, minister of
justice, intends to resign.
A credit of 200,000 francs was voted
yesterday by the chamber of deputies
for the relief of sufferers by the* mine
disaster at St. Etienne.
Wharves and works of the new harbor at Dunkfrke will be inaugurated
next month. It is expected M. Gu-
yott, minister of public works, and
possibly President Carnot will be
London, July 5.—In the third heat
of the race for the diamond sculls, at
Henley, to-day, Nicholls, the English
oarsman, easily defeated Protta, the
American amateur champion. Protta
had already wen first and second
heats, defeating Small in the second
heat yesterday.
London, July 5.—The Parnell commission is expected to adjourn next
London, July 5.—The Emperor
William landed at Nordheionsund,
Norway, yesterday.
Adair, Iowa, June 5.—Seventy-five
people were seriously poisoned yesterday by eating ice cream which was
made in vessels that had not been properly cleaned. Several will die, and
all are suffering badly.
Ellbnsburo, W. T., July 5.—At 11
p. m. a fire broke out in J. S. Anthony's grocory on Main st, between
Fourth and Fifth streets, and fanned
by a brisk west wind rapidly destroyed
the whole business portion of Ellens-
burg with the exception of the first
National Bank and the Lynch block.
The fire is now spreading among the
residences in the southeastern part of
the city. The streets are crowded with
teams and drays moving goods to
places of safety. The water supply is
inadequate, and there is nothing but a
hand engine with which to fight the
flames. There have been no fatalities
nor has any one been injured so far as
is known. About 14 blocks were destroyed. The loss cannot fall short of
91,000,000. The burned district is
bounded on the east by Sprague st,
on the west by the wator and extends
from Fifth to Second streets. The fire
is under control at the present time
and there is no danger of it spreading
further. The citizens are organizing
for the protection of their property.
Dubuque, la., July 5.—At ten
o'clock last night a wreok occurred on
the Chicago, St Paul and Kansas City
Road, about two miles north of this
oity. The Grand army had been holding a picnic at Twin springs, a resort
on the road above named, about thirteen miles from Dubuque. Over 5,000
people were in attendance and trains
were being run every hour to and from
the grounds. The accommodations of
the railroad oompany consisted of two
pasienger coaches, two stock cars provided with seats, and nine cabooses,
ln these cars 5,000 poople were transported to the grounds and wero being
brought home again when the accidont
occurred. The excursion train had
just landed 1200 people in thia city,
and was returning for the remainder of
the crowd, which coniiited of about
2,000 men, women and children, when
it collided with a freight tram en. roufe
for Dubuque. Only the most meagre
particulars are obtainable, the railroad
officials being extremely reticent about
furnishing information, A large number of people en tho excursion train
were going up (o pasB a few hours in
tho resort, intending to return on a
late train, and it is believed that many
were killed.
New York, July 5.—Frank Hoyt,
paying teller of the first National bank
of Hoboken, was arrested to-day at
the instance of the officers of the bank.
Hnytis charged with beitw a defaulter
to the extent of §18,000.
Providence, R. I., July 5.—Tho
Goodyear Rubber Co., assigned to-day.
Tho attachments placed on them by
Sears Commercial Company on Satur-
wiia followed up to-day until $716,000
worth of attachments swamped them.
Buffalo July 5.—"Wiihg Jung, the
Chinaman who kept a iiimdary in
the rear of 96 Swan street, was found
dead in his shop this morning with a
bullet hole over his eye. Death must

A heavy gale has been blowing for
the last 24 hours and has delayed
steamers somewhat. The sealing
schooner Mary Taylor returned to port
yesterday to obtain canoes. She lost
all her canoes, 8 in number, in a heavy-
gale on the 13th of Jnne. She will
sail as soon as possible for Behring
The Yosemite took the Islander's
place thiB morning. The Islander on
her return will go into the dry-dock to
receive an overhauling, the Yosemita
continuing on the Vancouver route
until the Islander is ready.
The British   Columbia  Ice  Manufacturing and Fish Freezing Co. commenced  work  yesterday.     The  its* ■
promises to be of good quality.
At 2:25 p.m. the fine residence ot
Mr. Jacob Sehl, situated on Laurel .
Point, at the entrance to the harbor,
was discovered to be on fire. The fire,
by hard work, was kept confined to
one of the wings until the arrival of
the firemen when it was soon quenched.
There was a heavy gale blowing, and
had the tire gained control of the
house, it would also have swept away
Sehl's furniture factory, situated alongside. The amoiit of damage is unknown.
The steamers Islander and Olympic
were to leave Port Townsend at 6 p.m.
and have a trial of speed to Victoria.
It is blowing a heavy gale outside,
however, and the straits aro very
rough, so it is doubtful if the race will
take place.
Accident to Ihe Yt'nlla Walla.
The steamer Walla Walla while
leaving the V. C. Co.'s coal wharf on
Monday evening, became unmanageable and collided with the ship Carrol-
lton. Very little damage was done
although she carried away the jibboon
of tho Carrollton and stove two of her
own boats, smashed one side of tho
pilot house and damaged a good deal
of fancy work on her side. The Walla
Walla is difficult to handle with a slow
head of ateam on and the accident was
not attributable to carelessness on the
part of any of the officers or crew. The
Walla Walla was seen later proceeding
down the gulf and steering wildly at
that time.—Courier.
Okanagon Mines.
The quarts mines at Okanagon an

claim hnve a shaft down 65 feet, and
have also run in a tunnel. It is said
that they received an offer to bond
their mine for a high figure, but failed
to conclude because they wanted too

claims have been located in the vicinity.
They can be ridden to from the waggon road.
The discovery of gold on Siwash

Considerable excitement was caused
through the Indians objecting to miners
working claims on the Indian reservation. J. A. Mara, M. P., was appealed
to by telegram by several of the miners
headed by Price Ellison, and gave it as
his opinion that tha whites were actinic

While the temperance—or more
•rrai-j-ectly tho prohibition—wave has
••Satken  a  backward roll lately, all
■smer   the   continent, there is every
■msvidence that this is merely the nat-
'•i*ral action, or re-action, of all great
aaoveraents, in   either   the physical
--ar -moral sphere, that have a resist-
kIssb  momentum behind them, antl
I'-itvh draw back alternately that they
s«ay striko  the  more swiftly and
.airely.    So  does the sea wave re-
>a»at  down  the  beach,  and   the
•vielder of  the axe withdraw his
-Made, nud the mower swing back
■ Ms soy the. Even the mighty stetim-
sttgine exemplifies tho same princi-
jite of action and re-action.   Nearly
■-M-very   manifestation of  continued
. -*ud applied 'force exhibits this pho-
tumuenu, on   the   surface   at least,
•=«rkile the steady trend is in all these
ssjses ever forward.  There is in this
i.apparent crisis of   the temperance
■cause  in  America, a cotemporary
• well  observes, no faltering, and no
jaaltering on the part of any of the
great churches of the country upon
this-vitul question.    Ill spite of the
. tatA   that   there is a strong ebb of
- the tide of prohibition for the time
iferoughout   ths   whole   continent,
caused   chiefly by the  disappoint-
' sient of expectations whicli were too
«reat   to   be  immediately realized,
.Mid partly by determined organiza-
. tion on the part of tlio opponents of
. .ihe movement, the whole Christian
. ahurch, Bonmn Catholic as well as
3?rotestant, is not even discouraged,
and instead of taking any backward
.stop all have shown firm fronts and
nre determined upon n further ad-
precedent and practice, and cannot
! well be evaded or resisted. Of
course, if the Canadian supreme
court should declare in favor of disallowance, the question will probably be carried by "the otlier side"
to the "highest court in the empire;"
but hardly more important questions
have gone the same road before with
satisfactorily final results, and there
is no good reason why the Jesuits'
estate act should not answer as to
its constitutionality before the bar
of the supreme court of the Dominion at any rate, without further
delay or shifting.

The anti-Jesuits estate act agitation is not dying out in the east, as
- •serta-in publicists and journals pre-
' dsoted it would; but, in both Onta-
zir, and Quebec, conferences, synods
• -sad assemblies, as well  as public
• Meetings and an influential eontin-
grjnt of-the press, are finding against
fire measure and putting thoir in-
.dlictments in no uncertain words.
When the matter came before the
SDominion parliament last  spring,
• <Sb -will be rivalled that high consti-
■Bitional ground was taken by the
■■government  'leaders and the great
" Majority of the rank and file of both
political  parties in the house, this
.'being the basis, too, of the opposition
fa -disallowance expressed by all the
--.Conservative and a number of othor
"eyurnals.   As everyone knows, only
thirteen out of the whole house were
' .found to vote disallowance of the
.Jesuits' estates aot when the ques-
- (ion  finally   came to  a division.
•-. The irerita'ion since that has for its
-""femute point and object the, submission of the disputed act to tho
: supreme court, of the Dominion, so
.•ifcat the question of its constitution-
.*lity may be authoritatively and ira-
jpartially settled by a competent tri-
*»inwl. The Dominion authorities,
«ad particularly Sir John Thompson,
aiinister of justice, nre very loth to
.-accede to this quite reasonable demand, for the reason, it would appear, that, if the court found against
tiie constitutionality of the measure,
(Hie government would be placed in
tan "awkward position" and that the
burden of actual disallowance would
fell upon its shoulders instead of on
the court's.    The- ileiiiniid. however,

Under  the Dominion   electoral
franchise act and amendments, the
revision of voters for the Dominion
elections takes place   this year, the
revising  officers  beginning    their
duties on or as soon as possible after
the first of June, the first  work in
order being the   comparing  of the
last revised list with the last assessment rolls. The work has boen already
commenced by the  revising  officer
for this electoral   district,   Mr. A.
J. McObll, and everyone,  both   in
the city and district, should take a
lively interest in  seeing  that their
own and neighbors' names are properly registered.    Section 33 of  the
amendment act  of   1886  provides
that the various  municipal  assessment rolls shall be taken as evidence
of those whose names  are  entitled
to be ontered on the revising lists,
<:with all the information  that he
(the revising officer) can obtain from
that or  any  other  source."   Tho
first and the last revision under the
aot, as most of our readers will recollect, was held in   1S86,  and the
increase of persons qualified to vote
under the act must  be very  large
since that  date.   No  one  who is
qualified should fail to take  advantage of his right to have  his name
entered on the revised  lists, which
are in course  of  preparation,  and
which according to the act, must be
certified and published not later than
the first  day  of  September,  and
finally  revised  and  certified  and
published not later  than the first
of  November.     The  qualification
under the franchise act, as is gener-
all known, is quite comprehensive,
embracing nearly every male white
person   in    this  province,  being
twenty-one years of age and a British
subject by birth  or naturalization
under one or other of the following heads: Property owners in oities
(to the value of §300) towns ($200),
villages  ($150), townships ($150);
income ($300 per annum); sons of
farmers;  sons of persons owning
and occupying real estate In cities
and towns; tenants of any real property who have paid one year's rent
at as high a rate as $2 per month,
or an annual rental of $20; tenants
renting any property assessed high
enough  to  qualify the owner as a
voter;  fishermen  owning land or
personal  proporty of the value of
$150.   In  addition  to the above
qualifications, every person in this
province who, under the special provisions of the act applying to British Columbia  and  Prince Edward
Island, registered as a "provincial
voter" on the last revised Dominion
list will continue to be qualified to
vote, without any other qualification,
so long as his qualification as a provincial voter continues.   The Columbian has already called attention
to the fact of the revision of the Dominion voters' lists this year; but,
considering the general disposition
to carelessly overlook or supinely
neglect the important duty of com-
couipleting one's qualification for exercising the franchise, it would be
an excellent idea if a number of
patriotic persona in this city and in
the various polling divisions throug-
out tho district would make it their
special business to see that everyone
who is otherwise qualified gets his
name   on  the revised  voters'  list.
Vancouver is already "looking alive"
in this matter.   If the royal city
doesn't hustle, it will get left,
The great fight is over, and the
magnificent muscles of that fine animal, John L. Sullivan, have once
more been proved invincible. As
usual, the prohibition of prize fighting
failed to prohibit. Prohibition in the
case of prize fighting is evidently a
mistake. The authorities ought to
encourage the practice, only insisting that every fight shall be literally
"to a finish," That is, that the
battle shall continue until one of the
fighters is dead, and the victor shall
be immediately elevated (by the
neck)to the exalted position towhich
his achievement entitles him. This
would effectually und for ever settle
the question which was tho better
man, nnd would at, the same time embalm the fiune of the victor in tho
memory of a grateful people. A third
Clause providing for the honoring of
all actively engaged in encouraging
the light by Baluting them with
three volleys (of ball cartridge)
would lenve little to bo desired.
It would appear that some dissat-
isfation has existed with the action
of the council in appointing two engineers instead of one to prepare
plans, etc., for submission to the
council and an expert. Whether
any of this dissatisfaction was interested or not, it was certainly founded
on misapprehension or ignorance of
the truo facts and circumstances of
the case and the good reasons the
council had for their well considered
appointments in the premises. A
perusal of the council report, and
particularly of Alderman Curtis' explanation and Alderman Cunningham's remarks on the subject, will
convince anyone that the council
did not act altogether unadvisedly
in the course they pursued, but in
the best interests of those whom
they Berve—the people. Time is
admitted by all to be a very essential
feature to have in viow in the con
struction and completion of the
water works. Indeed the cases are
rare where time gained—especially
at no additional expense—is not a
very desirable acquisition in any
publio work. Alderman Curtis, with
hiswell known penchant for "figgers,"
put up, last night, a little "exercise"
in the "rule of three" which makes
it us plain as the nose on a man's
face, and that, too, without inducing
any extra perspimtion this warm
woather, that it givon necessnry
amount of preliminary work in connection with the water works will
be done in half the time by two men
that it could be accomplished by
one, and, of course, without additional expense. What more could
the most censorious or finnicky
ratepayer ask 1 Long live a council
that conducts its public works in
that way, we say.
A Large I'autller.
Last Friday morning Mr Salmond
shot a magnificent panther, measuring
7 feet in length, after the voracious
brute had succeeded in demolishing
one of his calves and nearly killing
two others. No wonder that wheu
skinned the animal was found to have
a lining of fat on the breast which
would hare done no discredit to a
prize Berkshire. If we could manage
to extirpate these destructive "felines"
by presenting some testimonial to each
of our neighbors, who succeeded in
killing one of them, we might then
manage to "go in for" sheep-breeding
with some chance of aucceas. As It is
at present, what with dogs, panthers,
wolves, etc., this, the most profitable
of all the farmers' resources is all but
totally denied at.—Courier.

All our information seems to indicate that the Behring Sea question
must very soon be taken up vigorously
and disposed of. It haa been hanging

A curious custom prevails, it is
said, among the inhabitants of the
Sandeman Islands. When a nativo
girl, who has had a number of suitors,
is carried of by her accepted lover,
the wedded pair, within 48 hours
of the wedding, send a cup of poison
distilled from tho halulula tree, to
each of tho bride's former admirers.
If any of the recipients feel that they
cannot becomo reconciled to the
marriage, thoy drink the poison and
die; but if they decide that tlstry
will survive tho loss of their intended
wife, they throw away the poison,
and feel bound in honor never to
show the slightest sign of disappointment. By this system tho husband
is able to livo on friendly terms with
tho surviving admirers of his  wifo.

A Winnipeg despatch of Saturday
says: A sudden and unexpected shock
was given to many of our citizens  last

was a sovero one.   The ex-premier was
takon ill  last  Thursday night  with
pains in the  abdomen.   A physician
was called in, but nothing  serious was
anticipated until last  niglit when  ho

that it was possible to do  under  the
circumstances for the  patient's relief
was done, but owing to his extremely

in Manitoba in 1841  and  since  1870
has beon conneoted with the  government of the provinco.   His death will
be a great blow  to   tho  conservative
party of Manitoba and tho Northwest,
with whom he was exceedingly  popular.   Towards tho end  Mr.   Norquay
evidently realised  he was  dying and
made some settlement  regarding  tho
welfare of his family.   The doctors aro

a nativo of Manitoba and was recognized as  a Scotch  half-breed.   From

In 1862 he married Elizabeth, second

London, July 5.—Before the  Parnell commission  to-day  Mr.  Davilt
oponed his own case by culling to stand
Mr. Loudon, formerly member of  the
commons for Mayo.    Mr. Davitt questioned him as to tho periodical famines
in Mayo.   The witness said tboy were
duo entirely tu   tho   system   of  rack

branch of the land league   hud  never
voted  a  single  farthing   to  foment
crime.   The murders of Lynen, Hudd
and Kavanagh were the  work  of tho
herds league, un organization part   of
whoso policy wns the shooting of herds
belonging to land   leaguers.    Witness
said he hud never  informed   the  authorities of tho3o  facts,   although he
had frequently denounced  tho  herds
league in public.    His reason for  nut
giving tho authorities the information
he possessed us to the authors was that
ho did not wisli lo put himself on   the

London, July 5.—Lord Randolph
Churchill has definitely determined to
stand for central Birmingham, local
conservatives refusing to obey the dictates of the central authority, who desired that John Albert Bright might
be permitted to retain liis scat as a liberal-unionist. This action on tbo
partof Lord Randolph and his supporters is likely to cause much troublo
for the conservative managers, as tho
unionists will probably rebel if ono of
their number is displaced by a eon-
servativo in contravention of the distinct understanding thnt bo was not to
be opposed. Many shrewd political
observers see in this incident tho rock
upon which tho presont government is
destined to go to pieces.

The British Museum contains
what aro probably tho oldest pieces
of wrought iron now known—-a sickle

Piaster Floors.—A now process
for hardening plaster Paris, making
that substanco suitable for flooring
purposes, has been communicated to
the French Academy of Sciences by
Jl. Julte. The plaster is mixed
with one-sixth of its weight of line,
freshly-slaked lime, nnd used with
as little water as possible. After
bocoming thoroughly dry, it is treated with a saturated solution of
either zinc sulphate or iron sulphate.
With the first the hardened plaster
remains whito, while tbe second, by
gradual oxidation, yields the color of
iron rust, which gives n fine imitation of mahogany under an application of linseed oil.
—The disaster to the war-ships stationed at Apia lias  reminded   Mr.
H. E, Gunther of the theory of Dr.
/"enger, of Prague,   who   suggested
the use of photography in weather
prediction.   Photographs of the sun
are claimed to oft'er almost infallible
indication of  atmospheric and subterranean disturbance at  least 24
hours   in    advance.     The   photographs  often show rings about the
sun, and when these  rings aro  unusually large  and   heavy,  violent
storms, thunder-storms or magnetic
disturbances will soon be experienced.    The establishment of a   photographic observatory at  every ships'
station is urged.
An  Interesting Product—Ox-
alo-molydic acid is a new substance,
possessing peculiar, properties, which
has been discovered by M. Pochard,
a French chemist,1' When dry   the
crystals may be preserved unchanged
without special precautions,   but if
moist they quickly become colored
on sunlight.   Characters written on
paper with the solution remain  invisible in a weak .light, but turn to
deep indigo in the sun's rays though
tho solution itself is practically unaffected. A sheet of paper dipped in
tho solution and dried in the dark,
will give a very   sharp   blue print
when exposed behind a photographic
negative.   Water instantly bleaches
the color so that a moist  pen may
be made to write in white on  blue
paper.    Gentle     heat,    however,
changes the blue to black, and fixes
the color.
Great Waste-Spots—The Sahara
Desert, according to Mr. Joseph F.
James, is a   diversified  area 3100
miles long by 600 wide.   Summer is
its only season, its days Scorching,
its nights cold.    Its soil   is   chiefly
gravel and coarse sand.   Its oases
enable caravans to cross it, although
much of the area is otherwise waterless and destitute of alll   vegetation
and animal  life.   The   Desert   of
Gobi, the Asiatic Sahara,   is   moro
than 1800 miles long and 500 wide.
It is a plateau 5000  feet high,   a
wasto of sand and rock,   with few
oases, and only live tree in a distanoe
of 500  miles.   Ice  forms   nearly
every night, and the temperature
often fulls   to 30 ° or 40 °   below
zero.   The   interior  of   Australia

square milos, dotted here and there
with a fow stunted bushes or dwarfed

other Asiatic deserts is the suffocating simoon.    A large part of Persia
is a desert tract, in which vegetation
is so rare that onn  may travel 300
miles and seo only one  tree.    Herji
tho salt desert, with a porous crusted
surface, extends 100 miles in length
by half as much in width.   In South
America tho Puna extends for   350
Spanish miles in length at nn elevation of 12,000 feet.   A brown grass
covers the ground, thero are but few
trees, and a single   tuberous  plant

Among ali the operations that, a surgeon

Louis Globe-Democrat, Tho eye is sui-lt tin

Tbero is the caso of Annio Morgan, ol' Litis
city, tho daughter of a wealthy citizen,  Bho
is about sixteen years old, and was a boauty,
rich and rare, until Iter face was disfigured
by an accident.   Bho was of a studious dis
position, and used to hum the midnight oil
steadily in hei-room. Loud, piercing screams
awakened tlto whole Morgan household several mouths ago.   They came from Annie's
room in the middle of tho night, and it was
thought that burglars had rffiulo thoir
pearanco.  Everybody rushed   there tuul
found a bright llainu on tho floor from an
overturned and broken lamp.  There were
groans coming from a pile of clothing on
tho bed, nnd wheo a big quilt was unrolled
Annie was found with her clothing badly
burned and tho upper part of her body livid
and with big blisters in many places.   Sho
hat! upset tiic lamp in some way. und the
burning oil had been thrown over her. Bho
retained her presence of mind, and, instead
of fanning the flame by running around, she.
wrapped herself in a quilt and smothered
the flame.   Tliis undoubtedly savedher life.
A physician was summoned at once and
Annie was removed to another room.   The
charred clothing was cut away with cure, so
as not to disturb the elevated epidermis, ami
the whole burned surface oftho body was
washed hi a solution of creosote and water
and then was covered with oil and a thick
layer of cotton.  Her face was greatly swollen, mid she was in a comatose condition:
tho eyelids wero raised, and it was seen thnt
her eyes had not suffered as much as the
surrounding tissue.  This was undoubtedly
due to tho fact that Annie, being nearsighted, hud on a pair of glasses, and theso
protected tho eyeballs frcintheii est burst of
the flame uud frying oil.   If sho had beon
withoiitthc glasses both eyes would certainly
have been destroyed, and even as it was
their condition was bad onough.   Her face
was bathed in a soothing ointment and thon
wrapped in cotton so arranged us to exclude
the au* from evory part oxcept ou a lino
with the mouth and nostrils.   Burns wheu
extensive aro not only vory dangerous, but
uro slow to heal at all.   Alternate hopo and
fear wore thoonlyoutcomoof tho patient's
condition for weeks.
Tho worst part of tho wound was around
tho eyes, anil special attention was paid to
keeping tho pus Irom getting into them and
preventing inflammation. The sight iu the
eye was not normal, but this was duo to
the disturbance in tho retina from inflammation rather thau to auy permanent do-
feet in tho eyes. After a long, patient
and hard struggle tho proper combination of internal and external remedies
was discovered, and the condition
was slowly Improved, and finally tho ulcers
healed. The effect of tho burn was horrible.
Tho lower part of tho faco was in fair
shape, and timo and cure would wipe out
tiic irregularities and leave little deformity,
but tho upper part would draw a sympathetic tear from a stone. The upper and
lower eyelids on both eyes, under the Influence of the poison in tho tissuo, had sloughed
Such a desperate stato of affairs led tho
doctor to take dosperato   chances.     Ho
waited until tho paitent had recovered
strength and thon began the work of making now oyolids.  He started on tlio right
cyo first, which was ia the worst condition,
as only a slight portion of each lid remained.
Cocaine was applied to the eyo nnd neighboring tissue until it became insensible.
A slight portion of the flesh of the upper
Ud was mado raw by scraping.   A pieco of
tissue was cut from tho patient's arm,
just largo enough to lit tho raw  edge,
and was quickly applied to it.   It was
only a small strip, but it speedily settled the
fact that the flesh would tako root, and in a
few days it had united naturally.  The next
step in tho operation was to dissect a flap
from tho buck of tho right arm, near the
wrist, leaving one end of tho tissue intact.
The arm was raised to tho level of tho eye,
and, while it was firmly hold, was united to
tlie upper lid with two sutures.   Small strips
of adhesive plaster wero also applied to
strengthen tho union, and larger pieces and
blindages woro used to hold tho arm firmly
in position.
Tho pationt had to bo watched constantly
to prevent her from getting relief from the
awkward situation by lying on her arm.
"When the arm becamo numb electricity was
used to sliinuhito tho circulation of tho
blood.    Antiseptic dressings were applied
frequently to tho wound, and in two weeks
the union had become strong onough to permit tho flap to bo severed.  The eye was
kept moist all tlio time with castor oil, aud
tho new flesh was raised by small ivory
supports.t  Tho pationt remained in good
health, nnd tho left oyo was operated upon.
Thoro was no preliminary test usod, and
after the upper lid hnd been prepared a flap
whieh had been cut from tho loft arm was
joined to it with sutures und bandages.
"Whito this wns becoming united the new
lid on tho right cyo was trimmed to tho
right size, drawn down at tho corners and
made fust at tho outer and inner angles.
The left lid made a moro rapid union, und in
ten days the arm was released.   This lid
was  ulso trimmed nnd  fitted  into   position.   Tho wound licnled splendidly, and
was very encouraging.   At the end of a
month tlio entire tissuo was covered with
un unbroken membrano.   Another flap was
made on tho right arm, when the inflammation hud subsided, and attached to the under
lid.   This also made a good union, and tho
flap was severed in about ten duys.
Work was begun upon tho other eye in.a
few days. This part of Ihe operation was
very troublesome, as tho edges of the ficsl,
were not properly nd justed by reason of the
patient jerking'.ior head from pain. Thero
was considerable sloughing, but in time the
wound became healthy and tho flesh united,
The under eyelids wore shaped to meet the
upper ones and woro sutured. Careful
Watching pvoventod an accumulation of pus
nnd the tissuo healed rapidly. After they
became toughened un opening was mado in
the lower eyelids into tho littlo tear ducts,
which woro kept dilated by a small bone
drain tubo about tho size of a needle.
Enough fluid was discharged from tho lids
to keep tho eyes moist, This-was considered remarkable, as tho little glands wore
almost totally destroyed. Tho patient is
now nblo to move the litis with tho muscles
tlf the forehead and ehcelr, and this gives
nn odd expression to her face. Her sight, is
good, and when sho has glasses on the do-
formity win not bo noticed oxcopt ou close
inspection, and the lids servo all the purposes cf thoso that wsro destroyed. VOLUME 1)4,

A Dr. Evans takes credit for discovering a new test for the freshness of eggs, which consists of holding tliom to the ear and violently
shaking them. If not fresh an egg
will -rattle! Thero appears to be
littlo novelty in this suggestion,
as tho practico is an old one. It is
now claimed that an infalible test of
vitality in an egg, true freshness,
is to hold the broad ond of an egg,
gently pressed on tho tip of your
tongue. If fresh it, will bo distinctly wanner than the tongue, while
tho small end will be as distinctly
cold, If the egg is not frosh both
ends aro cold on account of losing
its vitality. It might bo well for

A remarkable will caso has recently been decided in France. A
wealthy iiititi named Tra vers died and
left all bis propertyfor tho benefit of
the poor of London. In his will he
used those words: "1 have always
been opposed in my nativo land. I
have arrivod at tho age of 45, and
have never been my own master.
Horrible mil ion! People of cowards
and blockheads! I should liko to
have milliards to give to tho English,
who lire the born enemies of this

contested the will both ou the ground
of the alleged insanity of thu testator,
and furthermore, that it was contrary
to public good. Their efforts, however, proved a failure, and the courts
have sustained the will.
The ordinary man is sometimes

a contest between thom (in whicli
law as usual, got away with the
blind goddess) wliich is tt fair sample
of the way "the common sense of
most" is sot nt naught by tlie,special
sense of the legal few. A woman
was tried for poisoning her husband,
and found guilty. Tlio jury's verdict wus "murder in tlio second degree." Then it was discovered that
the statute pronounced killing by
posion "niurder in tho first, degree."
And as thoro was no legnl ground
fora new trial, the verdict was held
tantamount to an acquittal and tho
murderer got oil'.
A new scheme to induce warmhearted persons to open their pocket-

Tlie schemo wus worked by a man

which tn bury her husband. She
received several contributions, hut
one lady, doubting her story, said :
"I'll go to your home with you."
She did su, and to lier great surprise
found the husband laid out oil a table
with a white sheet thrown over him.
She was much moved by the sight,
and pulling out her purse gave tho
"widow" several dollars iu small
change. After leaving the house the
lady discovered that slio had forgotten her handkerchief and returned to
get it. Upon re-entering tho room
she was shocked to sec tho "dead
man" sitting up counting the money.
Says the America; Those persons
who have charge of the American
section of the Paris Exposition deserve the hearty thank's of this
country for decreeing that the
"American Sabbath" shall bo respected on French soil, and that tho
exhibit from the United States
shall not be open to visitors on Sunday. Nothing could speak more
eloquently to foreign peoples of tho
high regard for tho (lay of rest, and
worship which all true Americans
feel. Americans at home and
abroad should feel proud of tho
"American Sabbath." It is one
of our most precious institutions,
and though it bus been vigorously
attacked of lute years by hostile
foreign influence, the reaction is now
setting in whicli cannot fail to overwhelm its opponents, if Americans
remain truo to themselves and to
the best interests of thoir country.

Tho Buffalo Courier says:—Tho
ever delighted "Traverner" in the
Boston Post opens a contest in bad
English by citing as a masterpiece
a remark made by a well-dressed,
pleasant-looking man to an older
acquaintance in a public place,
which ran exactly as follows:—
"You ain't so lleshy ns you was, be
youl" After remarking that the
only words rightly employed in the
whole sentence are "you," "so," and
"as," "Traverner" says he thinks of
offering a reward for a verbal gem
equal to this one. Well, thero is tho
old ono said to have been uttered by
some children who were told that
their mother was calling them: "Hor
ain't a-calling wo; us don't belong to

of the incident. Beside these, the

London, July 6.—A dispatch from
Vienna this evening states that a very
uneasy feeling prevails in the Austrian
capital owing to the more decidedly
pro-Russian attitude of the Servian
ministry, which is undoubtedly due to
the recent suspension of the ordinary
passports for Servia, and the suppression of the Kassova commemoration
by tho Hungarian and Bosnian governments. Herr Hengel Mullock, Austrian minister at Belgrade, has informed his government that the majority of tbe Progressist leaders, the
only friends Austria had in Servia,
have now adopted tho liberal or pro-
Russian views, but he states that this
is due more to the rejection of their
demand to make Bosnia an autouomus
kingdom under Milan, thau to the
Kassova incident. The Russian view
of the illegality of the Belgian government is being maintained by the Servians. The proposed reduction of the
Servian standing army has been abandoned and instead battalions are being
rapidly increased, a polioy, whioh before the Kassova incident, would have
upset the Servian ministry,  as the
Sealants previously desired the re-
uotion of the regular army and had
the promise of the regents that such a
policy would be pursued in diplomatic
circles. In Belgrade very little doubt
now prevails that Ihe military convention between ServiaandRussla haa been
ratified. Here in London the roport

London July 9.—The queen is suffering very much from lumbago and
rheumatism, and on Thursday at
Marlborough house it was quite apparent with what difficulty she walked, even with the aid of the arm of the
Prince of Wales and her stick. She
had not recovered from the chill
caught during her journey from Scotland. Sho hardly stood at all at Marlborough house, and her Indian attendant was close at baud all the timo to
give her a chair. She looked tired, and
was very red in the faco, though very
gracious and in good Bpirits. Sho
wore hor usual black black gown, and
the suito with her wore black also, but
there ueeniud to be a little more white
feather than usual in her bonnet, and
it has white strings. It is ourious
that in spite of her diminutive size,
and no high bred appearance, no one
has more grace and dignity than the
queen, nnd when she speaks, moves
about or smiles one quito loses the
consciousness uf the fact that sho ia a
very small and not good looking old
lady. Nothing is more charming than
to see tho Prince of Wales with tho
queen. His manner is so tender, differential and affectionate, he watches
over her with such care, attending to
her every want and suggesting anything which he thinks will please her.
He walked very slowly and carefully
with her on Thursday, for it evidently
pained her and she had great difficulty
in.mounting the steps from the garden
into Mralborough House. She made
the prince walk a Btep ahead and help
her up.
The meeting between the Queen and
the Shah wai very funny. Conversation was carried on through the Persian minister. The queen stood for a
moment admiring the large emerald diamond buckles the Shah wore on his
waist band and. coat, and, having sat
down, she motioned him to a seat bo,
side her, which he accepted looking
around for the Princess of Wales who
was immediately behind him, and
whom he made sit on a chair on the
other side of him. The pantomime
which expressed his wishes was irresistibly funny, and taxed the princess
greatly, for she bit her lips hard to
keep from laughing. However, ahe
must have got accustomed to it, for
during the Shah's stay there, it was
evident on several occasions that she
could hardly keep and look serious.
The jewels at the court ball last
week were magnificient. The bench
of Duchesses Marchionesses and countesses was a blaze of light. The Duchesses of Westminster, Leeds, Cleveland, Bedford and Portland wore the
finest, but Lady Londonderry, and
Lady Hesdford ran thom very close.
No one's diamonds were more magnificient than the Barness Burdett-
Coutts, for she wore a tiara that went
all round her head, and looked like a
complete orown of diamonds. Her
other jewels were magnificient. The
Baroness De Worms blazed with Jewell. The Duoheia of Portland and
Princess Louise divided the honors of
the evening. There was great amusement to see the family quadrille with
which royalty opened the ball, Lord
Fife dancing with the Princess of
Wales and the Prince of Wales with
his daughter. The Princess Louise
looks bright and happy, and Lord Fife
was in lover-like attendance during the
whole evening. Tho Duchess of Portland looked very handsome, and evidently her lord and master was in-
tensly proud of her, for ho devoted
himself to her all tho ovening. They
seemed mnoh more contented to talk
to eaoh other than anyone else. Lord
and Lady Randolph Churchill were
sent for on to the Daii during the i
evening by tho Prince of Wales ond
presented to the Shah. He said nothing to them, but inspected Lady Randolph carefully, who boro the ordeal,
which was rather trying, with more
sang froid than her lord who looked
very bored. Lord Randolph stayed
late at the palace, apparently enjoying
himself, and went into supper with hiB
sister, the Duchess of Roreburgh.
New Orleans, July 9.—The excitement over the Sullivan-Kilrain
battle has nearly died out to-day, and
except about saloons and various headquarters of the sporting fraternity, the
city is very quiet. Visitors to the
fight were leaving in large numbers
for tbe north, aB there is nothing to
remain here for, the result of yesterday's fight being so decisive. All talk
of fights between other pugilists has
apparently been entirely given up,
and tho chief desire of everybody is to
got hutne as quickly as possible.

miner Interesting Case.
A case of interest to societies generally has just been tried at Nanaimo before Mr. Justice Crease. L. Page
brought aotion against John Hilbert to
recover $12.00 being money paid by
plaintiff to defendant to become a
member of Platonic lodge of United
Order of Honor. The application of
Page to become a member of the lodge
was refused but his initiation fee was
not returned to him. This ho sued to
recover. After hearing some very
lengthy evidence proving that the
money was paid to Hilbert, his lordship gave judgment for plaintiff, and
mentioned several others to whom the
same amounts were due, and also suggested that the remainder of the fundi
of the lodge in the hands of the treasurer be equally divided among the
members of the late lodge.—Times.

Although the Southern states have
lung since acquiesced as gracefully
aa possible in the consequences
which the result of the memorable
American civil war imposed upon
tbem, it is nothing morn than natural and human that some rather
fervid sentiments should he entertained, unci occasionally expressed,
on the subject by that portion of
ihe nation that was vanquished in
the struggle for what it considered
constitutional and divine rights.
That Southern feeling has not died
Out altogether a recent speech in
Virginia, by General Early, of the
Confederate army, would seem to
show, ns do other utterances from
Southern public men, from timo to
time. Tho graves of Confederate
soldiers at Winchester were being
decorated not long ngo on the day
aet apart for that purpose, and General Early, the orator of the occasion, in the course of his address,
said : "The men whose bones now
lie in this cemetery gave their lives
for what they not only believed to
be, but what I insist, was a just ami
righteous cause. That cause was
loot, but that did not prove that it
was wrong, for tho history of the
world abounds with instances in
which might has proved more powerful than right. The fact, therefore, that the cause for which those
brave soldiers gave their lives failed
of success, nnd that wo have accepted tho result, with u determination
to abide the issue as the final settle-
men' of the questions which lod to
the conflict, does not justify those
tune servers who pretend to have
discovered that they were on the
wrong side in the contest, either from
want of manly courage, or from some
sinister motive of self-interest. As
I have said on a former occasion :
*li ever I repudiate, disown or apologize for the cause for which Lee
fought and Jackson died, may the
lightning of heaven blast me and
the scorn of all good women and
true men be my portion,' And again
I say that the Confederate who has
deserted since the war is infinitely
worso than one who deserted during
the war." These sentiments are
-fairly representative, it is said, of
- what is left of the military South,
and the best the triumphant Nortii
can do, an exchange well remarks,
is to read snch addresses and mako
no sign.
The history of the man who is
attracting more attention at this
ime than the president himself is an
eventful one, says an American co-
temporary, and not without the
shadow of many dark and suspicious
clonds, notwithstanding the testi
mony of many good men to his noble
qualities, his integrity and honor.
Briefly told, it is as follows : Alexander Sullivan first went into business at Detroit in a boot and shoe
store. Business was not good. His
storo was burned out; the cause of
the fire was incendiary, but the investigation failed to provo that Sullivan was criminally responsible.
While in Detroit he was involved
in a shooting scrape. Sullivan says
he did not shoot but was only shot
at. In 1867 he was postmaster at
Santa Fe, New Mexico. He
stamped Michigan for Genernl Grant
in 186S, and was afterward appointed collector of internal revenue in
New Mexico, in 18C9, but was removed for cause in 1870. He got
into another shooting scrape with
H. H. Heath while he was editing
the Santa Fo Post, but, finding tho
paper did not pay, he left Now
ilexico.and his §6,000 debts, behind
him. He roamed about consi'liirab'ty
after this, ultimately turning np in
Chicago in 1873, where ho found
employment on various papers, drift
ing nbout till he got a position on
the Chicago Times as political reporter. The 'Times had bitterly
fought the people's ticket, but whon
O'Hara was elected city treasurer
and Colvin mayor, whom the Times
had oppost'd, Sullivan was, to everybody's surprise, appointed secretary
of the board of works. His coldblooded and inhuman slaughter of
F. Hanford, principal of the North
Division high school, in front of his
wife uiul little ones, every one who
was in 1870 old enough to read the
papers must well remember. He
was twice tried for this dastardly
cnine, the first jury not agreeing
and the socond acquitting him, on
what grounds tin indignant j>0O| I-i
were nt u loss to imagine, vxi-ftpi
that the Olan-na-Gael ruled tliu jury,
Sullivan's next act which helped to
buildup his reputation us tm honorable man was to take advantage
of the national bankrupt law, which
was in 1870 about to go out of ex-
istenoe. Ho wus discharged und
freed from his heavy debts, his
assets being nil. He wns elected
president of tho lnnd league in 1883,
Suoh is n brief glimpse of the record
of the man who now figures before
the  publio   ;is tint most prominent
"suspect" in the matter of the recent
dastardly and revolting murder of
Dr. Oronin, in Chicago. The strong
presumption of Sullivan's connection
with the Cronin murder is based
upon the following grounds: Sullivan, being an active member of the
Olan-na-Gael, or United Brotherhood, and likewise a member of what
was known as the "triangle"—an
executive committee of three officers
of the Brotherhood—enjoyed, with
his two brother oflicers, almost unlimited authority in the management
of the order and the application of
its funds. It was in the application
of these funds that the trouble which
culminated in the murder of Cronin
and the arrest of Sullivan arose.
For several years it had been charged
that tbe vast sums of money raised
by the Olan-na-Gael had been either
misused or malused by its officials.
The charges finally took definite
shape, and were formulated by u
committe, of which Dr. Oronin wns
tho central figure. The gist of the
charges was that the "triangle," and
especially Alexander Sullivan, had
converted the funds, and more particularly one sum of $100,000, to its
or his own use. A preliminary examination by the officials of the
order resulted in two reports boing
brought in, one exculpating and the
other inculpating the accused. Feeling ran high, and quarrel and contention occurred in every "camp" of
the Clan-na-Gael and branch of the
League. Cronin and his sympathizers determined tn bring the matter
up at the annual conventions of the
two organizations, which are to occur
soon. While working up his evidence, Oronin was assassinated under circumstances seeming, at least,
to indicate that the murder had been
carefully planned by members of the
order. Our readers are aware, the
coroner's inquest held in Chicago resulted in Sullivan being charged
with the crime, arrested, indicted,
and jailed, and he is now awaiting
his trial, with strong chances, if justice is done, most will be forced to
admit, of being convicted. Alexander Sullivan, who by the way, is a
lawyer as well as agitator, although
of Irish parentage and descent, is
said to be a Canadian by birtb, having been born, July, 1841, in the
town of Amherstberg,Ont., where his
father, a British soldier, was assigned to garrison duty. In personal
appearance Sullivan is described as
at first sight disappointing, being
below medium stature, thin, slender,
and of poor physique. The general
expression is that of a well-educated
but over-worked professional man,
In public meetings, however, all this
is changed tho moment he rises to
his feet. A sonorous and penetrating voice, a clear and manly enunciation, an admirable diction, a good
flow of words, and a fine sense of the
pathetic and dramatic, make him a
public speaker of the best type,
Alexander Sullivan undoubtedly
possesses talent of a very high order,
but it is to lm feared that, conjoined
with this, he is thoroughly unscrupulous, and therefore, tbe most dangerous of men, whose punishment, if
this blackest of all the crimes laid
to his charge is proved, should be
suro and condign.

Mayor Hendry, by special invitation,
attended a reception given hy Admiral
Heneage on board the flagship Swiftsure, yeaterday aftornoon, at Vancouver. A select party was present and
a most enjoyable afternoon was spent.
Mayor Hendry invited Admiral Heneage and the fleet to visit Westminster during the timo of the provincial
exhibition, and it is quite possible that
one or two of the warships will be
present on that occasion. Should the
admiral finally decide on visiting tho
lloyal City, he and his gallant men
will meet with a reception as cordially
and sincere as they havo met with anywhere on tho Pacific station. It is to
be hoped Mayor Hendry will be successful in his efforts to bring tho fleet
to the Frasor River.
Hose Heel Kneea.
The promised hoso red exhibition
race came off ou Front street last
evening in tho presenco of fully 1,000
people. Six Seattle men and the
same iiuinboi of Hyncks were chosen
to run tho nino, anil, after posting tlm
timekeepers, the signal to start was
given and t'fl' tho team dashed at it
rattling pace. Tho 000 feet wore
covered, connections made and tho
race properly finished in exaotly 28
seconds, six seconds hotter than the
best timo mado by tho winning toam
ot Vancouvor, on July 1st. Everybody admired tho manner in which
the race was run, nnd tho splendid
time made was a surprise to the majority of tho spectators. The Seattle-

Royal City, and lou . their praise of

A Langloy correspondent signing
himself "Sympathy," writes the following for publication : "I am just out
from a hospital in Westminster, and
remember, whilst thore, how I lay tossing to and fro, too weary to read, aud
painfully counting the hours as they
slowly passod away. Sinco arriving
home, I have thought how gootl and
kind it would be if, some of your
"sweet singers" in Westminster would
form themselves into small companies
of "singing pilgrims' bands" and givo
services of song, low and sweot, to tho
wenry ones. It would bo well to extend the same to tho penitentiary, nnd
I feel suro that by such a moons many
a lone; clttsocl, but tendor chord would
bo touched, tho mind would coll up
better days, and with tearful sorrow
fto- the juts', would load to new re-solves
for time to come."
BukIiiur lhe Work.
Work "ii the North Arm bridges
does not progreSB as rapidly as was expected. It mis first announced thut
operations would begin on July 1st,
but work did not start then. Mr. A.
C. Fruser, who is getting out tho piles,
then said all would be ready for a commencement ou the 5th inst., but the
next day a letter was received from
Mr. McMullen, of the San Francisco
Bridgo Co., deferring operations till
the 10th. A couple of days later Mr.
Frasor wns notified to have the piles
on tho ground not later than the 15th
lust., for on that dato ti regular rush at
the contract would bo made. Yesterday another letter was received from
Mr. McMullen ordering everything to
be in readiness by the 20th inst. No
letter has been received to-day further
deferring the work, but it looks ns if
these postponements will be kopt up
till Christmas.
Interior Mines.
J. Tollyard arrived down from Rock
Creok und Okauugou mines on Tuesday evening, having ridden to Sica-
mous. At Rock Creek Copt. Douglas
ia still at work on his mine. Tho shaft
ia at a depth of 100 feet, and a level
has been run in a hundred feet, the
vein showing four feet of ore. It is
the captain's intention to sink down
another hundred feet, and if the ore
still shows good machinery will be
placed in to crush and concontrate.
Work on other olaims is not being proceeded with. Tho Laura Hydraulic
Co. have their sawmill in operation,
and aro turning out 7,000 feet of lumber daily. Ono thousand feet of working flumo has been hir), and about 900
feet of the supply flume, whilo the
lumber is sawed for tho greater portion
of it.
Mclntyre's quartz mine is to bo improved by the addition of a roller
quartz mill of about five-stamp capacity. This class of mills nro said to do
very good work.
Firemen's Tournament.
It is now proposed tu hold a grand
tournament during exhibition week,
of firemen's races, hoao coupling and
all other contests in which only firemen will participate. Tho members
of the Hyack Fire Company are the
originators of the idea, and it is on excellent one. Should the tournament
be arranged, and the prizes be of sufficient value, it is expected that teams
from Spokane Falls, Walla Walla, Tacoma, Seattlo, Olympio, Victoria and
Vancouver will attend. The Hyncks
should now go to work iu downright
earnest and bring the tournament into
being. It can be dono, and the poople of Westminster will subscribe
liberally towards the event, especially
aB it will be the means of bringing
about the greatest gathering of fire
eompanies ever held on the Pacific
coast. No time should be lost in commencing preliminary arrangements,
and the subscription list ahould be

spring in the western port of Alaska.
News from the canneries at Chignik
Bay, Ozernoy and farther to the westward is to tho effect that salmon are
nearly a month later than last year.
The steamer Polar Bear at Pirate Cove,
May 29th, reportod no salmon having
yet como into Chignik. The schooner
Helen Blum is reported at Sanak with
seventy-five sea-otter Bkins on Juno
1st. The schooner Vandcrbilt, which
was wrecked at Sanak last fall, has
been floated and repaired, and is probably on hor way down by this timo.
The schooner Dashing Wave was to
hove left Sand Point with a cargo of
codfish. The schooner Arago wns reported at Sand Point on June 10th.
The little schooner Island Belle, previously reported ashore ot Dora harbor, will probably be floated and repaired. The United States revenue

On Friday, tho 28th ult., a very
successful and pleasant time was spont
by tho scholars, parents and friends of
the Lulu school. It waB tho occasion
of the midsummer examination, and
waB ably conductod by our energetic
teacher, Mr. W. T. Kinney, who has
now held the position for a year, and
during that time hos proved himself
the right man in tho right place.
There has been on average attendance
of about 15 or 20 pupils most of the
term, and the progress made in the
different studies has been highly satisfactory to tho parents ond trustees. A
pupil of the school, Miss Ado E. Sweot,
hos posaed successfully the entrance
examination to the high school, taking
very high marks. A class of 4 has
been in preparation for teachers' certificates, and bid fair to be successful ol
the coming examinations in Victoria.
In the junior classes the pupils have
made exceptional progress as woll, and
tho whole scliool is in a thorough stato
of efficiency. After the usual routino
uf classes, the tables wero spread and
a sumptuous lunch waa served by the
ladies who woro in attendance. After
full justice hud boen dono to the excellent viands, the next order of the
dny was recitations and singing by tho
pupils of the school, after which
speeches woro mado by Mr. .1. W. Sex-
smith, ox-trusteo, Mr. B. W. Garrett,
trustee, Mr. J. Tuttlo, ond Rov. S. J.
Thompson, and O. D. Sweet, J. P.,
and ox-toaohor of tho school, all of
whom congratulated tho teaoher on the
excellent results of the day. Another
apecial feature was the prizes given by
the teacher and trustees. The prize
for highest proficiency in all branches
wai won by Miss Ada Sweot. The
special prize awarded by Rev. S. J.
Thompson for highest marks in English and Canadian history was won by
James Sexsmith. The otber prizes
were awarded in tho order of merit,
every scholar in tho school getting a
prizo, and consequently all were supremely happy. A hearty testimonial
was left un record by the visitors present expressing entire confidence in
Mr. Kinney and oongratulntion that
the trustees have secured hiB services

The Hose ltecl Buces.
The hose reel contests at Vancouver
on July lit are being cut up all round,
and even the Vancouver papors are
beginning to see that some sort of an
explanation is necessary. Evory visiting team complains of unfairness and
ungenerous treotment, and not without good reason. The World stands
out and snys "these charges require an
explanation at the handa of our brigade," and concludes by calling on the
Vancoverites to "speak out," The
Vuncouverites have got the money,
und ore welcome to it as for as the visiting teams are concerned. They were
determined to win by hook or by crook
and did so But it is those who cherish
the fair name of the terminal city who
should demand an explanation, and
insist on a thorough inquiry into the
merits nf the case before the money so
unfairly won is paid orer to the alleged
winners Three times hos thiB aort of
thing occurred, and still Vancouverites
allow it to go on.
Another Opinion.
Mr. M. J. Conlin, foreman of No 1
Company, Victoria Fire department,
in a letter to the Colonist on the racei
at Vancouver, tells his story of what
was done after the disputes commenc
ed: "A meeting of the viiiting tcomi
waa called and a written protest sent
to the judges who failed to recognize
it. Thoy all agreed that had there
been fair judges or men who understood their business, Viotoria would
havo had lirat place. Nozzlemen not
being allowed to touch the pipe after
it was put on, Seattlo ia entitled to
the money, because the only team that
carried out the association rules. Seoond day all visiting teams withdrew
from the contost, owing to the unfair
treatment they had already received,
Victoria boys addressed the assembly
from o verandah, stating' their reasons
for so doing and offering to compete
with Vancouver's best team for $500
or $1,000, race to be run in Seattle.
The Seattle captain made the some
offer, which up to now they have not
accepted. There is a forfeit in the
hands of Seattle's captain any time
Ihey raise the money. Our reason for
selecting Seattle ia, she is neutral
ground, nnd they thoroughly understand firemen's races. Thus ended
ono of the must disgraceful firemen's
tournaments ever held on the Paciiic."
A Steamship Ashore.
Captain Cavan, of the steamer Rainbow, which arrived from Viotoria last
evening, reports having passed a largo
ateomship oshoro on tho outer sond-
houds, somo 500 yards out of tho proper channel. Sho was flying tho A mcri-
otlll Hag, union down, and hud commenced to list over with lhe receding
tide. The Rainbow did not pass near
enough tu distinguish the vessel's
name, but the words "San Francisco"
were plainly read on hor stern. Tho
steamer was flying signals of distress
ond H. M. S. Champion was close at
hand evidently intending to send a
boat to seo what was wanted. Tho
steamer Rithet was also standing by,
and would render assistance if any
was needod. Tho steamer, was evidently working without a pilot and
had gone on at about half tide. It is
hard to understand how sho got so far
out of the channel without striking
sooner. Sho would probably get olf

deeply fixed iu the sund.
Since writing tho above fuller particulars of tho miehaf have come to

so far, with a local problem of more

the settlers—with one exception—
hove their land fenced in along the
highway, thus keeping their stock off
the public road. This "one exception" gentleman haB a yawning gap
where nil fence ought to be, and the
consequence is that hii cattle get out
and make the road-bed, which is soft
in places, more like a ploughed field
than a highway,. rendering it virtually
impassable for a certain length, to the
no little Inconvenience and injury of
his neighbor!—tho "exception" himself not being affected by the condition of this particular road as his
situation gives him access to anothor

independent minority to fence his land
in the publio interests. A pound bylaw, to be enaeted and enforced by the
municipality, appeared to offer the
much-desired remedy. All the settlers
in Kenatngtou, then, but one, immediately petitioned the Surrey council to pais a pound by-law, which
would enable cattle straying at large to
be summarily impounded. This was
all very well, but the interests of Ken-
iington Prairie are not paramount in
Surrey. People in the other sections
of the municipality began to take
alarm when they reflected that the
measure would apply, not only where
it was wanted, but in every part of the
municipality as well, and that it might
be applied In lome instances, by the
mischievous or spiteful, aa an instrument of wanton annoyance. Conae-
quently, there wai a muih larger petition againit the pound by-law than
for it, and Ihe petitioner! on both aides
attended the lait council meeting, on
the 22nd ult., in force, to "influence"
that body in lta deliberations, with the
result that tho vexed question was laid
over till next meeting. A somewhat
amusing feature of the case is tho fact
that the "fenceless" man, who is the
unwitting, but hardly innocent, centre
of the Surrey tornado, took immediate
steps to build him a fence when the'
pound by-law seemed likely to become
an assured tact, but has suspended
operations awaiting developments.
Perhaps a practical adoption of the
"golden rule" is the only solution to
the Surrey problem.

On Saturday evening, June 29th, an
entertainment was given at tho Deighton Hall in connection with the distribution of prizes to the pupils attending the above school. The stage, improvised for the occasion, and the
tables, were adorned with beautiful
bouquets. The porents and friends
turned out in full force.
W. Teaguo, Esq., J. P., secretary
to the board of trustees, waa called to
the chair and opened the proceedings
with a speech, in which he pointed out
to the parents how much encouragement they could give both to the children and lo their teacher by taking an
interest in educational matters. The
children wero also incited to diligence
and perseverance in their studies, not
only to fit them for the duties of life,
but also to give thom the power of acquiring knowledge, from whioh they
would derive pleasure and profit in
their leisuro hours. The chairman
then called upon the lonelier, S. Shepherd, for his report. The teacher congratulated the audience upon the increase in tho population of Yalo, as
was evidenced by the fact that, whereas the average actual daily attendance
during the previous year wob 15.65, he
would be able to report to tho superintendent of education an actual average
doily attendance of 22.07 for the year
i" ust completed. Tho chairman districted the prizes and presents to the
children, ond in a happy manner encouraged each child to make greater
efforts to oxoel in the future. The
rolls of honor were awarded to Esthor
Oppenheim for proficiency, to Alice
Teague for deportment, and to Alexander MacQuarrie for punctuality and
On the conclusion of the distribution
of prizes the chairman called upon Mr.
Sterling for the order of programme
which he had kindly undertaken to arrange. The performances of the ladies
and gentlemen who sang and recited
were loudly applauded, and the violin
solos were much appreciated. Mrs.
Williami had very kindly trained several of the girla to Bing songs and they
did her great eredit. Mr. Oppenheim
(trustee) moved, and Mr. Dodd (trustee) seconded, a vote of thanks to the
chairman and to the ladies and gentlemen who had contributed so much to
the ovening's entertainment, whieh
was carried with acclamation. After a
few words from the chairman "God
Save the Queen" was sung in a truly
loyal and patriotio manner, and thus a
pleasant and profitable evening wai
brought to a close.—Com,

Borne very positive assertions anent the
provincial secretary's communication
to the city council here, on high school
matters, we deem it only fair to reproduce the following letter, from the
.Victoria Times of tho 1st inst., oon-
trat'icting, with apparent overwhelming au-thority, some equally positive
statements—or, in the light of the following testimonial, misstatements—
made recently by Mr. Muir touching
the superintendent nf education, Mr.
Pope. The communication which we
copy from the Time, explains itself:
Editor Times: Sir—In your issue of
June 21st appeared a letter signed "J.
N. Muir," in whieh the following statement was made: "It has been the custom for Mr. Popo to direct teachers in
graded schools to make up false returns
of their schools." Now, Mr. Editor,
knowing the abovo statement to be maliciously false, and one calculated to in-
juire the reputation of the superintendent of education, if uncontradicted, I
deemed it proper to tako upon myself to
communicate with tlie teachers of the
high schools nnd graded schools of the
province, and received in reply the sig-
natures of the following teachers to tbe
statement that they had never been instructed by Mr. Pope to make out false
retnrns of their schools:

There was 0 time when the bachelors of the Scott road were content to
wear flannel or wincey shirts, but that
day has gone by, and the old simplicity of apparel so manly and robust looking is giving place to fashionably cut
cloths, boiled shirts and cut throat
collars. It is not to be supposed from
thiB that the young farmers perform
their daily labors in dress suits and
white kids, for they are still willing to
work in "low neck and short sleovos,"
but it is on Sunday after tho cattle
have been foddered, the cows milked,
the chickens fed and the geese navigated to the water, that they shine
bright and glorious; in fact one would
take them for splended specimens of
London or Parisian fashionables. The
reason for this radical and unexpected

Tifctjen v. Harling—This was i»n application made yosterday for an injunction to restrain the defendant
from manufacturing and selling cigars
under the name of the "Little Mainland" the word "mainland" being part
of the plaintiffs registered trade mark
in reference to the same article. It
wai contended ou behalf of the plaintiff that the act relating to trade marks
prevents the uie by another of a part,
aa well as the whole, of a person's
trade mark, and that the word "mainland" is oa much a part of the trade
mark in question aa in tho diagram
within which it ia written. Besides
the authority of the act the English
and Canadian reports contain abundant authority in support of the plaintiffs claim' The plaintiff's counsel
cited among many others a ease wherein it wai decided that where a mineral
water waB lold under the name of
"Apollinaris water" it waa an infringement to use the name "London Apollinaris water," and ao alio wai it decided to be an infringment to tne the
name "Imperial Bibaiic" where the
trade mark wu "Imperial." A trad*
mark is supposed to word the f ulleit
protection to the owner thereof, and
the law, ai tha authoritiei clearly
ihow, will restrain a penon (rom ni-
ing in anyway a part of another's trade
mark in respect of the ume article.
Should the quality of the "Little
Mainland" cigar be reduced it ia certain to injure the name of the "Mainland" with which it cannot help being

on behalf of tha defendant will be

Mysterious Drowning.
A strange drowning accident occurred yesterday at Canoe Pass, which
up to the preaent writing is unaccountable. The str. Stella, of tho Royal
City Planing Mills Co., on her way
from Mud Bay to Westminster, ran
on a snog in Conoe Pass and stuck
fast. Only the captain and engineer,
James O'Donavan, were on boord at
the time, and the captain took tho
boat to proceed to Ladners in order to
telegraph for assistance. When the
captain returned O'Donavan was missing, and as there were no means by
which he could have left tho steamer
and no likelihood of his leaving the
steamor even if he hod the opportunity,
it iB supposed ho must hove been accidentally precipitated into the water and
drowned. O'Donavan could not swim,
so it is scarcely likely ho was bathing,
and tho drowning must have beon
through accident. The deceased was
a native of Liverpool, about 30 years
of age, and had beon in this city obout
threu years. He was a steady and respectable young man, and was a general favorito with his fellow employees,
as well as his employers, who will
deeply regret his loss.
Tlio Stella, with a search party
aboard, was sent down to Canoo Pass
this morning to try and recover the
Later—O'Donavan's body was recovered this morning near tlie spot
whoro the Stella ran on the snag. The
coroner wus notified and an inquest on
the body will be held this evening.

Capt. Jageri, of the iteamer Rithet,
reports that the iteamship Karluk,
which ran aground on the outer Band-
headi, wu lucceufully hauled off on
Saturday. The itrs. Yoiemito and

minutu the Karluk wu afloat in deep

Summaries or Some or llie Cllr Sermons
Spoken Sundny.
Before commencing the sermon yesterduy, the Venerable Archdeacon
Woods announced that there would be
a celebration of tho Holy Communion
on Sunday next at 8 and 11 a. m., that
dato being the last on which he would,
minister to tho congregation as rector
of Holy Trinity. The Venerable
Archdeacon particularly requested that
as many us possible of the congregation
should be present at his dosing services. The subject for the sermon was
taken from 1st Peter, Sth chap., and
8th verse, "Be sobor, be vigilant, because ynur adversary the devil, as a
roaring lion, walketh about, seeking
whom he may devour." Tho order of
tho day is to bo sober and vigilant, and
to watch always. When Peter wrote
these wurds it is just possible he hod
before him our Lord's words, -What,
can ye nut watch an hour.' Wo should
ever have these words before us. Today 1 want to speak to you of your adversary the devil. Why do' Wh' fllid
him with so many names; he is given
every name lie could possibly be known
by, the tempter, dragon, old serpent,
evil one, prince of darkness and many
more all bo obvious. We read of the
time when Satan tempted Christ in tho
wilderness; in Job we are told that
sotaii appeared in heaven before God
as the tempter. 1 hope, without
straining the meaning of the scriptures,
that I can lay before you aome of the
ways of the devil. The devil is not
always at our side, at all times and in
all places, but he has an all pervading
influence for evil. I say with all reverence that to imagine or suggest that
the devil is always at evory man's elbow, is all nonsense. Look at the
thousands of deathbeds; it is absurd to
place satan at each one of them unless
wo are prepared to give hiin the omnipresence of God. The Holy Spirit is
omniscient, stitan is not; the Holy
Spirit is the Lord and giver' of light
and life, but the devil is not. We
might liken the devil to somo malign
animal, who, through poisoning some
part of our food, tempts us to become
part of himself. Your power and my
power, dear friends, for good, is greater than the devil's for evil. Satan can
only enter at a door left open. Man's
power for evil is also very great, and
the great evils we do are voluntary on
our part. The devil- cannot devour
those who resist him, and he will have
very little power over you if a strong
resistance ii made. Christ is the
captain of our salvation, and it ii only
soldiers who require a captain to lead
them on and direct them. Therefore
the queition to each one of ua ia, are
we one of Christ's soldiera! for to Hii
soldien is the victory. If we are, victory will be the reward, and we cat)
boast that we fought the good fight
and kept the faith.
could grasp; they would fail in their
estimate, hence this passage, "to Him
increased tho joy." Now this evening for a few minutes let us talk over
the harvest joy. It is qualified, because there are so many kinds of joy,
but this is a joy tangible and eternal,
and wo joy liko Him. It is an old
Hebrew expression, "joy in harvest;"
they joyed at three feasts; whon the
corn was green, when it was ripo, and
when it was harvested there went up
the shout of "harvest home" in thanksgiving to God. Jesus joyed over the
result of his own work; so in tho
Christly sense Paul compared his acquisition, with what he had left behind and reached on before, in hopo,
looking to tho joy of harvest. Crowns
aro there, but no man can wear one
who has not won it. God has saved
us and then offers a crown, but only
he that runs and struggles up and
gains it shall wear it. God rewards
tho farmer and the trndosman for their
industry, and will Ho not reward the
Christian for work done for Him. He
does a great deal to help, but you must
help yourselves. For instance, the
man coming down and oponing store
at aix or seven 0,clock will most likely
do hotter than the man who sleeps tn
nino o'clock and then opens up with a
sour face: man'3 providence very often
helps mon whom God's providence
don't. Some of our young men in
their first pastorates complain of rough
work, but in evory farm tlioro is considerable grubbing and stono picking
to do. Stand by a purpose, pursue it,
and the joy of harvest will como.
There aro many young men today
who havo farms and stock left to them,
ond through their lovo of fino buggies and fast horses they soon loose the
farm, just simply because it wus not
the result of their own labor and they
could not value it. All tho men
who mako success in inventions and enterprises do so as the result of their
having wrought from the beginning,
and now they have tho joy of harvest.
Do you mean to soy, says Paul, that
there will be no difference in the next
world ? If not, then we are of all men
the most fooled; look what I have
given up. But he joyed the joy of
hope, which means fruition. Hope
inspires, nerves, until man in his work
feels Ins individuality and presses on
to the joy of harvest. The reverend
gentleman, after urging to greater
activity in the hopeful possibilities, so
that thoy might partake in the shout
of harvest home, said : A year ago
to-night I left Duluth, not knowing
just where to go to, but God lod ub
here, and now at the end of the year I
want to review a littlo, and I want
God and you to notice that 1 claim no
honor, no glory. I hove hod to rejoice
ell along, and this is enough for me.
During the year, by your help and that
of some one else behind—for I do not
think that any hove been gathered but
that some one else away back had
something to do wilh persuading them
—by various agencies 30 persons have
been receivod by baptism; some converted in the Sunday school, some in
the young people's meeting, and somo
by the help of other agencies, nnd I
was saying to them, "Boys I havn't
missed one nf you." No, we aro all
hore; 35 others huvo been received upon letters;; tho congregation has grown,
and at the Thutsday night prayer
meeting ivo have un averago of 60; tho
young peoples' meeting have increased
iu numbers; so also the Sunday school
has increased in numbers nnd vigor;
about 82,000 has been collected here,
81,370 of which wus collected on the
plates, for which thanks nro due fo the
congregation generally and to friends
from other churches. Only twice have
I mentioned monoy, and without nny
coaxing you have dono well, paid the
debts and huvo something moro. If
you had not done this, if it was not for
yoor liberality, I would have had to go
somewhere else. God Wosb you in
your pood works, may you rodouble

a harvest of souls as will redound to

Yesterday was the closing sabbath
of the first year of the Bev. Thoi,
Baldwin, pastor at Olivet Baptist
ohurch. At the evening services he
reviewed the work done. His text
waa from Iaiah 9 c, 3 v.—"Thou haat
multiplied the nation, and not in-
created the joy; they joy before thee
according to the joy in harveit, and as
men rejoice when they divide the
■poil." The rev. gentleman ipoke ai
follows: It ia veiy hard with this
rendering to get good aenie or anything like the true meaning of tha pro-
phet'i expreuion, but he evidently
meant the Lord Jesui Christ—to Him
increased the joy. You see the prophet looks forward from the dark prophetic ages down to tbe age when
Jeiuishould appear in due time. The
era in which the prophet ipoke wai ai
a theatre of darkneu and without God
and hope in tht world, yet he wai
looking ahead, yet not knowing the
future eventi that ihould ipring up

The Tacoma .News has it from a
prominent Northern Pacifio official,
whoso heart has been beating very
near tho vest pocket of Henry Villard
the past few days, that the Northern
Pacific proposes .putting on a transoceanic line of steamers between that
port. Japan, China and Australia. The
negotiations are said to be pending not
only for such a line, but for a Sound
line of steamers of first-class make,
speed and capacity. It is said before
very long the details will be given to
the public; that the Northern Pacifio
has hod such a project in contemplation for some time, but that the O. B.
& N. millstone has prevented its being carried out. Now that the Northern Pacific ia released of that blood-
sapping barnacle, the purpose of the
powers that be will be carried out as

The Old Cemetery.
Bev. Robert Jamieson, the minister
who conducted the first funeral service
in tho old Douglas street cemetery,
about a quarter of a century ago, sent
a communication to the city council
last night calling attention to the neglected state of the graveyard, and the
necessity of making such repairs to the
fence and gates as will suffice to keep
out cattle and horses. To the credit
of the council be it aaid that it was
unanimously resolved that the necessary attention should be immediately
given it. Alderman Jaques, very
rightly, claimed thut the cemetery
should bo removed to a more suitable
location, and the board of works will
report on this at a future meeting of
the council. Many of the old pioneers
of the province lie buried in thia neglected and desolate enclosure, but in
not a few instances the mounds which
marked their last resting place have
been obliterated by wandering cowi,
the head boards overturned and tram,
pled under foot, until now it would be
impossible .to aacertain whose dust lies
in many oi the graves.        "

The Exhibition Fnntl Again.
The curtain has been rung down on

now begins. Ab The Columbian
started the list, it is quite proper that
our subscription should be the first to
be paid in. This we have'done today—into the Bank of Montreal, and
to the credit of Alderman Thos. Cunningham, who is besides chairman of
the park committee and vice-president
of the B. 0. agricultural association,
We hope to seo every subscriber to the
fund follow suit in rapid order, as no
time is to be now lost, and the money,
to further the exhibition in the various
ways contemplated by the conditions
of the fund, Bhould be available without delay. A glance at the fund will
show tbe manner in which we intend
to acknowledge every subscription as
it is paid. So, come on brethren and
moke a race for tho foot of tho list.
The Columiiian congratulates the liberal subscribers to the fund for the
vory respectable sum, §1,162.85, which
their united efforts have realized, and,
on behalf of the subscribers, we promise, in conjunction with tho park committee and the directors of the agricultural association, to take an interest
in die disposal of the money, agreeably with the objects of the fund as
printed at the head of the list.

Owing to the business like manner the
council octed in appointing two engineers to carry out tho surveys and
superintendence of the proposed water
works, I hereby tender my resignation
as a member of the water and sewer-
ago committee. My reasons for doing so oro I am satisfied that under
the present engineering staff, namely
two high salaried engineers (when one
was all that was necessary) with the
assistants will cost the council a sum
far in oxcess of the Bum set down in
Mr. H. P. Bell, O. E.'b estimate, namely §4,500 for engineering and superintendence, which is a part of the cost of
the whole works ($200,000.) Any
business man if he stops to consider a
moment will see what the end will be.

about this most important matter and
gave me no credit for knowing anything in regard to the question although I had given the matter a good
deal of study; therefore in justification
of my position my duty is to resign
from my position on the water works
and sewerage committee. In doing so
I have no ill will to my colleagues, who
no doubt ore more capable men and
better fitted to complete thiB most important work.
Laid over for ono week.
Alderman Jaques said that Alderman Scoullar's letter referred to the
appointment of a superintendent for
the water works, and apparently intended that the publio should believe
such an office had been created. No
superintendent had been appointed
and none had even been spoken of.
The public Bhould not be misled by
auch inferences.
The board of works reported having
taken over the tools from the park
committee; that tenders for the improvement of Fortesque atreet had
been received and that of D, L. Smith
at §2,300 being lowest, be accepted;
that tho tender of the R. C. P. M. Oo.
to fill in the foot of Douglas street for
§350 be accepted.   Report adopted.
In the matter ot suburban taxes Mr.
Curtis reported having examined the
judge's book and found tbat judgment
hod been given against Mr. Elliott,
and therefore the cily waa entitled to
collect taxes on suburban property,
The finance committee reported as
follows: That W. T. Cooksley be ap
pointed assistant clerk at a salary of
$75 por month and that he be allowed
$25 for extra work performed; that
the bonus to the woolen mills is ordered paid.   Report adopted.
tl The following accounts wore ordered
paid : W.H. Falding 25cts.; Gas Oo.,
$192;Gilloy Bros $1.50; Telegraph
Oo. $1.95; W. D. Ferris $15.
A summons to appear in court in
the case of Hennessey vs. corporation,
for damages received by falling from a
sidewalk, was read. On motion the
finance committee was empowered to
employ the best legal talent in British
Columbia to defend the suit, nnd that
an appearance be made at Victoria
Aid. Ewen's resignation was further
laid over for a week, pending the report of a special committee appointed
to examine into the water lot taxation,
Aldermen Cunningham, Townsend
and Reid all said they thought the
system of taxation on water lots was
unjust, and Aid. Ewen's grievance was
worthy of attention.
Tho committee appointed to report
on the Draper lot matter was given
further time to report.
Aid. Jaques drew the attention of
the council to tho fact that the time
tor registration nf voters for Dominion
elections was at hond, ond unless
some means were taken by the oouncil
to get tho names registered the voting
power of the city would be very unim
portant nt the next election.
Tho matter was referred to the fin
ance coniinitteo with power to act.
Aid. Jaques thought immediate steps
should be taken for tho eleotion of
water commissioners.
Aid. Curtis: "In regard to tho appointment of water commissioners I
have been of the opinion . that there
was no hurry as yet and I will oxplora
my position on the subject. There is,
nu doubt, a great deal of dissatisfaction over the appointment of tho water
works engineers, from the fact that
the public docs not understand the
question. As regards the engineers, I
was given to understand that two meh
could do tho work in half tbe time one
man could. Everyone knows two men
aro always better than one on any
question, for what one might not be
certain on the other could prbbably
render the. advice and assistance required. Time wob another object in
tho appointment of two engineers. We
must havo tho work undor way ihd
completed ns soon, as possible. 'It'wss
never intended that two mon Bhould
be employed throughout construction,
but as soon us tlio plans aro up and
preliminary work finisliod ono will be
allowed to go. My idea is that lis
soon as the pinna are up nnd submitted
lo a competent export nnd accepted by
him. that tho water commissioners
shall lio elected nnd tbo entire business
transferred lo them. However, I
liavo tho by-law ready and if tho council wishes it can bn rend a first time to-
Aid. Cunningham said many roports
against tlio notion of the I'niincil, in
regard fo the appointment of water en-
gluuero, lind gunb abroad, but tho water
works business could bo safety trusted
to the council. There wero many instances when it would be unwise to
make public oil arrangements and thiB
was one of them. But he thought it
only fair that the publio Bhould know
that the engineers appointed do not
get one cent unless the system of
water works proposed by them proves
On motion the wator commissioners
by-law was read a first time.
Aid. Joques notified the board of
works to meet on Wednesday to open
tenders for the improvement of Begbie
Aid. Cunningham desired that overy
member of the park committee should
be present at a meeting on Thursday
The council then adjourned.

Late Despatches.
Helena, Mont., July 2.—Another
cunningly devised effort to cheat the
gallows of Bryson, the wifo murderer,
has jii3t been discovered. One of the
murderer's lndy friends in Helena,
sent him a "pigs in olover" puzzle.
Sheriff Hnlford suspected thnt something was wrong nnd in handling the
marbles found that ouo seemed nithor
soft, and crushed it between his
fingers; inside wns found a strychnine
pill sufficient to kill n dozen people.
Santa Rosa, Oil., July 2.—Tom
Wilson killed ;i nuiti culled "Crazy .Tne"
at Glen Ellen, yosterday aft.nriKiun.
To n deputy who nrrestod him, Wilson
said: "Yes 1 killed hiin. 1 just cut
his throat from ear to ear and then he
snid fur mu to finish the job, so I got
my gun und placed it at his nose and
blew thu whole top of his head nff."
Wilson while frankly admitting his
crime, did not assign any reason for
it.    Hu is believed to be insane.
London, July 2.—When the announcement was made lust night that
the eldest suu uf the Prince of Wales
had been betrothed to the sister of the
Emperor uf Germany, it was accompanied by iho statement thnt ihe queen
would give the prince a marriage settlement and that parliament would not
be asked to make provision for him;
this statement was received with undisguised satisfaction nt the tune by
all quarters, as it was felt that the
queen could well afford to look after
the young prince's house - keeping,
but it seems that the taxpayers'
joy was just a little premature. In
the commons today, the speaker read
messages from the queen, commending the house to make provision for
Prince Albert Victor and Princess
Victoria. The reading of the messages
caused considerable surprise among
the members. Mr. Henry Smith intimated that the government would
be prepared to consider the message
next Thursday. Mr. Labouchere gave
notice that he would oppose all votes
of money if made before the appointment of a commission of Boyal grants
to inquire into this whole matter.
Ottawa, July 2.—There is great
activity in cable circles. The Western
Union is thiB week landing two cables
at CanBo to lay to New York to avoid
tbe land line. The Commercial company is laying a cable from France to
land at Canso this week.
A commissioner has been appointed
to investigate the charges of mismanagement against Superintendent Ellis
of tho Welland Canal. Great publicity is to be given to the case, as the
charges were made in the senate.
It has boen learned that the Anderson's have guaranteed to transport the
English mails across the Atluntie in
connection with the Canadian Paciiic
Railway at the average speed of nineteen knots. The London Times says
this will stimulate the scheme of a fast
mail to China and Japan.
Ottawa, July 3.—Hon. Mr. Poster
was married in Chicago on Monday to
Mra. Addie Chisholm, an Ottawa lady
who has just obtained a divorce in Chicago frum her Iiusband ou the ground
of desertion. Mrs. Foster is well
known iu Ontario temperance circles,
as both she and her husband have
been prominent members of the W. C,
T. U. for years.
The following contracts have been
awarded for Westminster penitentiary
supplies: groceries and Hour, C. Mc-
Donough; beef and mutton, Manahan
& Reichenback; coal, Wm. Rogers;
fish W. H. Vianen.
The government has been officially
notified of the greut exhibition to be
held in Hunedin to celebrate the fiftieth anniversary of the culony of New
Zealand. Space application forms can
be had from the department of agriculture.
A mounted police reserve will patrol
southern Manitoba to guard against
timber thieves.
London, July 3.—The Shah of Persia visited Guild Hall to-day, passing
on tbe way through the Strand, Fleet
atreet and Cheapside. At Guild Hall
he waa received by the city and corporation oflicers, who were dreased in
full costume of office, and presented an
address on behalf of the city. After
partaking ot breakfast, which waa
spread iu the great hall, the Shah returned tu Buckingham palace by way
of Queen Victoria atreet and embankment. The Shah and hia party were
accompanied in their state carriage by
the Prince of Wales, and both the
prince and Shah were loudly cheered
by the immense throngs that lined the
■treets through which they passed.
The weather waa cloudy and sunless,
but very favorable for sight-seeing.
davitt a evidence.
London, July 3.—Davitt returned
his testimony before the Parnell commission this morning. In answer to a
question Davitt atid he had no objection to join any movement looking to
tbe independence of Ireland if there
was force enough to justify such a
movement. He aaid he did not approve of the Olerkenwell explosion.
He regretted the attack on the prison
at Manchester whereby a brave policeman waa killed, but he applauded the
men who in th. attempt were trying to
rescue frienda. Witness said while in
prison he became convinced that seoret
aocieties would undo all the good effected for Ireland, and when he waa
released he conferred with the leaden
of the I. R. B. regarding the adoption
of an open movement. He failed in
hia endeavors to win the leaders to hii
opinion, with the exception of Matt
Harris. The witneii would not mention the names of any of other leaders
of the I. B. B. It wu intended to
make the land queition a .topping
stone to indepehdance bv treating
landlords as au English u'arriaou.
"There is a cry in America against the
Clan-Na-Gael," continued tlie witness,
"But it is for political purposes; it will
bo said that the members uf tlie Clan-
Na-Gael aro all extreme nationalists."
Attorney-General Webster then read a
copy of the resolutions demanding the
overthrow of British dominion in Ire-
lind, and the establishment of nil Iriah
republic. Davitt admitted attending
the meeting in America when the resolutions woro adopted.
London, July 4.—It turns uut that
the nctitin of the government in deciding to have a select commission appointed on royal grants was not takon
ou th'iir own motion, hut wits entirely
due to presure brought to bear upon
L>,rd Salisbury by the opposition. At
a meeting of the lenders of the liberal
party Tuesday it was decided to insist
upon the appointment of n commission
and Win. Henry Smith, first lord of
the treasury, was notified of the decision. Among the gentlemen who
attended the meeting were Mr. Gladstone, Earl Granville, Lord Herachell,
Sir William Vernon Harcourt nnd Mr.
Hurley. When the motion for nn appointment of this commission wns presented in the commons, iln effort wns
made by the radicals to include in the
commission of enquiry tlie subjoct of
the ciiil list for the purpose of showing that the queen herself was abundantly ablo to make proper provision
for the marriage of her grandchildren.
This attempt wns unsucce-sful, although it was supported by Mr. Gladstone. Tho commission when appointed will settle upon whnt principle all
future grains of public funds it members of the royal family slinll be made.
The concession of this committee
wrung from the Tory government is
looked upon as a great radical triumph.

was closed Wed nesdny, at Coburg, Ont.,
and the Hon. Edward Blake commenced
hia arguments for the defendants. He
said he would speak two days or
longer. Dalton McCarthy and Donald
McMaster will reply.
Nerve Tobtdeed.—"I suffered with
neuralgia and obtained no relief until I
used Hagyard's Yellow Oil. Since then
I have also found it an invaluable remedy for all painful bums and cuts, rheu
matism and sore throat." Mrs. F. Cam
