British Columbian.
Volume 7.
New Westminster, B. C, Saturday Evening, January i8, 1890.
Number 170
Tub proud boast that "Britannia rules the waves"
continues to be made good in the triumphs which alio
achieves in times of peuce by the construction of tho
most splendid and formidable specimens of naval
architecture that thu world con afford. Indeod, she
leads the world by long adds in this respect as well as
in soma othera. The new British wnr ship Blake,
which bus lately been launched in England, it is calculated, will bo the fastest war vessel afloat, and, for
her class, the strongest fighting ship. The displacement of the Blake is 0,000 tons; length, 375 feet; beam,
65 feet; draught. 25 feet 0 inches; twin screws, 20,000
power; maximum speed, 22 knots por hour, or over 25
milea. Acting as a ram, at this high velocity, and
with her great weight of 9,000 tons, it is doubtful if
any vessel could withstand tha shook. The Blake is
constructed of ateel throughout, has six-Inch armored
turtle-back steel deck, covering the magazines, torpedo niouis, engines, aud boilers. Fuel space, 1,500
tons. She is to carry two 9 inch 22 ton breech-loaders and ten 45 pounder quick-firing guns, each capable
of firing twelve times per minute, worked by two men,
and will pierce 12 to 15 inohes of armor plate. Her
cost is given at $1,840,000. Such in brief is the
Blake. She is far faster and stronger for fighting
purposes than any of the new American vessels so far
ordered, and coats much loss.
Dr. Charcot's article on magnetism und hypnotism,
in tho January Forum, observes an exchange, is simply
a study of tho facts relating to these remarkable
states, with no inquiry into their causes. The effects
which Mesmer produced were mostly but hysteria
convulsions; it remained for one of his diaciples to
discover the method of midwifery, magnetic sleep In
which the subject, it wns claimed, was under the absolute power of the mngnetiser's will. . Indignant at
the degradation of human nature involved in this
mind slavery, Dr. Braid, of Manchester, act about experiments which resulted in the discovery that any
''sensitive" could easily produce in himsolf the magnetic sleep by fixing his eyes upon a single shining
objeot, placed a little above the plane of vision, and
at the distance of a few centimeters. This state, to
which Braid gives the name of hypnotism, hns three
phases. In oue of them the subject is totally unconscious, but "if sufficient pressure bo made upon a
nerve or a muscle, tbe corresponding segment of a
member asaumos a fixed and uniform position," in
another, the patient has exactly the appearance of
being awake, but accepts aa true, with unquestioning
credulity, any suggestion of tho operator, whilo in
still another phase of hypnotism the "eyes nre wide
open and staring; the muscles and nerves nre no longer
capable of being excited directly by pressure, and contractions cannot bc produced; but, 011 the other hand
the muscles acquire tho property of retaining whatever attitude mny be given to the members. * * *
In this state is to be seen the vory interesting phenomenon of the unison of attitudes nnd fuciol ox-
pressious; the pationt will clinch hia fiat if the face
muscles that express anger bo made to contract by
electricity; conversely, his face will assume the expression of violent linger if hiB lists bo clenched
uud mado to assume an attitude of threatening,"
This Inat foot, comments an exchange, appears deeply
interesting, as pointing to a method by which the control of the passions may be assisted. May it not be
assumed that if the elootrio clenching of the fiats will
produce facial expressions of violent angor, through
the power of physical association nml suggestion, this
same association and suggestion might produce, to a
certain degree, all the painful physical effects of anger
iu u person who, for long, indulged iu its outwnrtl
manifestations. And conversely, that if u person
wero really angry and suffering its physical effects in
heightened pulso nnd Irritated nerves, he might greatly abate the latter und culm the mind itsolf by persisting iu the outward muuifestatious of amiability.
Wo know, in fact, that this eil'ect haa been produced
by persons wbo nevor did uny reasoning in the matter,
but found it out by Inspired experiment. Thoy dis-
covered that if they would resolutely look, speak and
move calmly when they were in a fury, the fury
would the sooner pass awny, und its physical effects
be milder, Thnu a knowledge of the body and ite
laws of association, automatic action points to a way
by which tho will, acting through those laws, can produce ellects not merely upon the body, but, secondarily, upon the emotions ns well.
Capt. Pittendrigh arrivod back from Chilliwack
yesterday having held the inquest on the bodies of
John Songers, Edward Hall and George Rutherford.
Mr. Moresby accompanied Capt. Pittendrigh, to watch
tho proceedings on behalf of the government. The
crossing of the river from Harrison Station to the
landing waB vory exciting and dangerous. The inquest wns held on Thursday evening und after the
jury had been sworn in the bodies were viewed whore
they lay in the Agricultural Hall. The principal evidence in the case was given by Burrows A. Irwin, a
well-known Chilliwack farmer. He said: I always
looked on Rutherford as an intelligent person, Ho
neyer talked nonsense until very lately. The lost few
days I noticed that he repeated things that caused me
to think something wus wrong. He appeared to
think that his neighbors thought he was telling things
about them. He mentioned Edward Hall, deceased,
and Ford's people. He did not mention Seagers. Ho
asked my opinion if I thought likewise; I suid no. I
saw him last Monday evening, January 13th, a little
after he shot the mon and just after dark. He was
going past me at quite a pace and only about two roils
distant. I said; "('ood night. Is that you George?"
He said "Yes," ahortly. At noon he hail told me that
he wus not well ami 1 continued, "Are you just getting home? How are yon now, George!" Ho suid the
samo, meaning about the same ns at noon. At noon
he said, "Do you think I am going crazy?" I Baid, "0,
I don't think so, George. If you come to my houso
and stay a few daya I will do your chores for yon ami
you will soon be hotter." He said that ho folt his
mind going. I told him that ho would lm better soon.
He seemed to bo .nifforing from influenza. He said ho
thought bo would go to tho hospital at Now Westminster. "Well," I said, "Won't you come in,Georgo?" I intended to do your chores for you," At that ho wheeled
towards me sharply. He had his rifle ou his right
shoulder and dropped it ovor his arm. He advanced
*,owards me a fow stops, flaying; "What have you
against mc, Mr. Irwin?" I walked up to hiin, Bay:
ing: "O, Georgo, I hove nothing against you; as sure
as' I am living I have nothing against you, George;
can't you believo mo?" He said, "I can, Mr. Irwin;
I believe you are a good man, but do you know what
I havo done ?" I aaid, "No." He said, "I have
killed two men." I said, "O, surely you haven't,
George." He replied firmly, "Yos, I have," I asked
him who ho killed, nml he snid, "I shot John and-Ned.
Thoy have been duning long onough. Tiiey have nil
been duping me. I got it in my coffee at Ford's on
Sunday, tho thing that has made ine sick, and look
out, Mr. Irwin, thoy will tto the same to you, Chas.
Jones came dowu and put it into the water I use, ami
thoy have put it into my food. Ford came up to-day
nud wont into my house and put it into my provisions,
und I am going home to shoot myself." I said, "O,
George, don't shoot yourself." He said, "Yes, I will;
it is all over now; I will be hung anyhow," and he
started off. I pleaded with him not to shoot himself.
He said, roughly, "Don't bother mo now. You havo
been a gootl friend to me; good-bye; you will never see
me again."
After hearing tho evidence nnd tho coroner's address, tho jury brought in a verdict to tlie effect thnt
Edwurd Hull nnd John Seagers had come to their
death by gunshot wounds, from a rifle fired by George
Rutherford, who admitted the aiime to B, A. Irwin,
on the night of January 13th, 1800. The verdict in
the caae of Rutherford wna "that tho deceased cume
to hia death by a gunshot wound Inflicted hy himself
whilo in a fit of temporary insanity."
The whole Chilliwack district ia greatly excited over
these horrible events, and when the coroner loft the
poopio wore still greatly disturbed.
The funerals took place yesterday, and as wns to bc
expected they wore very largely attended, tho wholo
country turning nut to observe the ceremonies,
Should thu small but noblo band of artist brethren
hi tho province not have noticed the marvellous cloud-
effects to be witnessed almost overy evening and often
during the dny, their attention is humbly drawn to
those tiuo studies. Theso phenomena arc apparently
peculiar to this provinco, us the writer, who hos been
11 student of such things in bis rumbles, doos not recollect having seen ht any lnnd iHiytiiiiig to surpass
their richness of coloring uml superb variety of form.
The scenery of British Columbia is well worthy to inspire the Bublimcst oiibrts of the genius of painting;
within herself she hna in perfection all the multifarious
subjects tbo artist fancy loves to depict. No oountry
in tbo world con excel the glories of her mountain
wildernesses, In thoao awful solitudes one muy seo
tho sterile grandeur of the Himalayas, the fantastic
tracery of the Bcrticse Obdrland und the southern
Alps; the barren, rugged steeps of the Pyrenees
blended with tho picturesque savagonosa of the western highlands of Scotland. But not alone iu whnt is
lofty nud nwc-inapiring in the Pnciiic province rich; in
every form of lowland loveliness mid puatorul beauty
she ts incomparable. No gem of midland English
scenery ever plnced on onn vas with consummate skill
by Foster or Tumor, Whistler or Sam Bough, or
othors of tho "home" school, can exceed those vistas
of indescribable beauty ono may note nil along the
Fraser valley, in the Delta and on Vancouver Ialand.
These are pastorals Iteycnd compare, and our native
artists, yot unborn, may delight the critical habitues
of tho Royal academy or the Paris salon by hanging
up those lovely bits from the golden west, some fine
future day. In marine studies also, and water views,
British Columbia must rank high; whoever has looked
upon ihot goin of the mountains. Pitt Lake, with the
sheen of the summer sun transmuting its ripples into
burnished gold; its calm, pellucid depths limning forth
with the faithfulness of a mirror the mountain gionte
around, with thoir pine clad slopes and glens; or when
tho broad autumn moon has cast her wide path of
silvery radiance across the shimmering bosom of the
lake, softened the wild rnggcdnesB of the mountain's
brow with touches of infinite soft light and shade,
glimmered in the pale foam of tho cascade and
quivered in silver arrows through the giant branches
of the pines—whoever has seen Pitt Lake under those
circumstances would scarcely hesitate fn giving the
palm for excellence, as a land of treasures for artists,
to our province.
This morning an able bodied young man tied a
small pony not much larger than himself, to a post,
close by the head, so that It could not move much.
Then he began to curry it with a comb. He relieved
the monotony of the currying by kicking the wretched
little animal in the tally, sidca and hams with his
heavy hob-nailed shoes, nnd exercising his murele  by
Eniiching it nbout the body with his fists. As soon us
e tired of this he dapped a half hitch with a rope
round the lower jaw of the little pony and proceeded
to exercise it by jerking the rope savagely, no doubt
producing exquishe pain, ns the poor little brute
writhed again under tho torture. And all thia took
pluce on 11 well known street right in front of the
police station nud the city hall, tho Uw courts and ul)
the machinery of justice. Several gentlemen evinced
ii burning desiro to interfere and heartily punch the
cruel fellow's head, Thoao sickening exhibitions of
cruelty to dumb animals ore nil too common in this
city. If niffians, such ns the above, are permitted to
own dumb brutes, the city should sternly see to it
that the letter receivo some protection from their
owner's brutality.
Grip begins its thirty-fourth volume with the New
Year, which means that this brave little journal has
celebrated its soventcoth birthday. When we say—
as we can without hesitation—that its ability both
literary and artistic has been kept up to a uniformly
high standard throughout this long period, and that
to-day it is us bright as ever, we mention a fact exceedingly creditable, not only to the conductors of
Grip, but also to tbo Canadian people, without whose
appreciation antl support this phenomenon advisedly,
for so fur as we nre Aware" there is not another country of Canada's age—certainly no other colony—that
can boast of a sixteen-year-old cotnio journal. Grip
has well deserved its success. It is not merely a
clever nnd amusing paper, it is also a recognized power
in Canadian public life, nnd a power which, we are
glad to any, is always on the right aide where questions of mora! principle nre concerned. It ought to
be a pleasure to. every Canadian to contribute to the
success of sueh a journal—unit tho most practical way
of doing this is by subscribing, The prioe is only §2
nnr vcur. Subscriptions muy bo sent diroct to Grip,
{■a grippe has captured C Battory. At parade yesterday only one full private responded to th*3 roll call,
ami but throo non-coininisaioned officers assisted at
the parodc. It is reported that tho step kept by the
soldiery was perfect, no such precision having ever
before boon witnessed since the battery was formed.
The amis were also poised in perfect line, while all
the evolutions wero performed with u unity of action
unexcelled by the best drilled troopa of the great war
powers of Europo. The sight of one soldier forming
squares by twelves, antl other complex military movements must have boon a unique one, to say the least,
and when the order to charge with fixed bnyonuts was
given, the.movement was brilliant and ,effective, as
one Bolitarv Tommy Atkins dashed bravely upon the
imaginary foe—[Times.
