Weekly Britisli Columbian,
Wednesday Morning, Sept. IS, 18811.
Considerable  pressure had been
brought to boar upon the Dominion
government to induce that body to
have the question of the constitutionality of the Jesuits' estates act
submitted to the supreme court of
Canada or to the judicial committee
of the Imperial privy council; but,
as u  sort of  hnlf-way measure, the
government referred the question to
the law officers of  the  crown, Sir
Richard Webster, of Parnell commission fniiiu, attorney-general, and
Sir Edward Olark, solicitor-general.
These legal luminaries have recently
reported on the question, in effect
that the act in question was intra
vires of the Quebec legislature and
perfectly constitutional.    Very few
doubted it, while many have questioned, and do still question, the
political   morality of  the measure.
The diverse comments of two eastern Oanadian journals, of pronounced
Tory and Grit proclivities respectively, on the finding of the law officers
of the British crown, will be read
with  interest.   This is what  the
Toronto Empire has to say: "Those
who have been disputing the propriety of the Oanadian authorities
allowing the Quebeo legislation regarding the Jesuits' estates to go
into operation, have constantly expressed their strong desire that the
question should be referred to the
law officers of the crown of England
or to the judicial committee of the
privy council, and   many of  them
have frankly expressed their willingness to accept a decision thus obtained.   They have  now seen the
accomplishment of their desire. The
law officers of the crown at Westminster can have no oxception taken
to them as a weighty and independent   authority.   Standing  in the
foremost  rank of  their profession,
and versed in the consideration of
legal and public questions, they have
no political  rads f- servo, hnvo no
local   or  personal liins to influence
them in forming an unprejudiced
judgment iu tliis niatter.   To their
fitness to form and express an opinion is added the weight of their absolute neutrality.   That they should
have  pronounced  in favor of the
course of the Oanadian authorities
will be very generally accepted as
conclusive—as a culmination of the
approval   expressed   by  the overwhelming majority of the popular
house and by the personal representative of our sovereign. Many whose
feolings as to tho objectionable naturo of tho inoasure influenced them
even unconsciously against a calm
consideration ns to tho constitutionality of the act, will not hesitate to
defer to this authoritative and independent conclusion.   For those who
are not ready to 'smash' confedera
tion the discussion as a practical
question is now settled definitely."
The Ottawa Free Press has an altogether different plaint. The truth
will be found to lie (strange that it
should, but it does sometimes) somewhere between the two. Says the
Free Press: "The Dominion government first decided to ratify the
Jesuit bill and tbon nsked for an
opinion from the officors of the
crown as to the wisdom or propriety
of their decision ! It is alleged that
at a certain period in Scotland's history it was customary to hang men
accused of crime and afterwards to
hear evidence as to whether thoy
were guilty or not guilty. Such a
proceeding is paralleled by the course
of the federal ministers in dealing
with the Jesuit estates act. Sir
Richard Webster and Sir Edward
Olark, to whom the matter was secretly referred, say that in thoir
opinion "the decision arrived at by
the governor-general not to interfere
with the operation of the provincial
act in question wns right und constitutional." No doubt it was. But
if the government had decided to
veto the bill would not tlieir course
have been equally constitutional"
They had the constitutional right to
veto or not to veto, and whether
they decided to disallow or ratify
the bill, the "constitutionality" of
their course could not be called in
question. Tho question as to
whether the decision of the govern •
ment was right or wrong is and will
continue to be a matter of opinion,
so that the post-mortem opinion of
the law officers of the crown, over
which the Tory organs are cackling
so loudly, really amounts to nothing.
lt came too late to be of any force
in determining the government's
action, and why it was asked for is
a mystery. Did any sane person
imagine that the two second-rate
members of the British cabinet, who
fill the positions of attorney-general
and Bolicitor-general, would take
upon themselves the responsibility
of condemning the courso takon by
the government of Canada with respect to a matter of Oanadian public
policy 1"	
Hurrah for Stanley Africanus, the
conqueror in more senses than one
of the Dark Continent. Tho indefatigable and dauntless explorer has
since his famous Livingstone expedition dono more than any living
man to overcome the barrier which
has so long interposed between Africa and the civilized world, and he
now figures ir. a new role, according
to the despatches, as having subjugated all the tribes in tho country
lying to the east of Albert Nyanza
and having established a government with Emin Pasha as governor
over the wholo conquered territory.
The victorious Stanley is also stated
to be on his way to the coast and is
expected to arrive at Zanzibar soon,
so that definite confirmation or
contradiction of the Brussels des
patch of Wednesday is not likely to be long wanting. The
effects of the latest achievements
which Stanley is said to have made
can hardly be estimated, in the
speedy development of what is in
many respects a magnificent country and in the consequent extension
of the commerce of the world.
The ever restless atmosphere of
the Irish question has again taken a
change, and Lord Salisbury, who a
few years since declared that he
could settle for ever that knotty
problem if only he was allowed
twenty years of resolute government,
seems to have grown wiser and now
holds out, through his cynical henchman Baifour, hopes to the Irish
party of a compromise. We say
advisedly "seems to have grown
wiser," for the wholo ohapter of the
British premier's public life teachos
H,„|.     IM...    ,1,„     T> !,„„,   Id,,,   ,,„„
neithor learned nor forgotten." In
the days when lie was foreign secretary undor Lord Beaoonsuold it was
ever a favorite move upon his part
to make somo startling and altogether unexpected development,
which had the effect of diverting
attention from failures at home.
The promise of atonement to Ireland, and the idea of giving the Irish
"something to keep them quiet" in
the shape of a University Bill appears to us to be merely anothor
Bpeoimon of the fertility of his genius
in tho art of political surprisos. The
session just closed lias been it completo failure The Tithes Bill, tho
Sugar Bill, und the compensation
clauses of the Local Government
Bill, together with tlio precious Van
and Whool Tax, hnvo nil fallen dead,
show but a sickening list of Irish
convictions under an odious Coorcion
Act. Every bye-election emphasizes the fact tbat the Tory party
no longer represents the people; and
so, to bolster up a tottering prestige,
the promise of a magnificent coup
is hinted at. Fortunately, howovor,
Michael Davitt and Henry Labou-
chere see the trap, whicli has been
so carefully baited, with the intention of severing the Irish-Liberal
alliance. Thore is as yet no evidence that Parnell has been deceived
by tho fair promises of tlio premier
and his subordinates, for tbo Irish
leader is a careful man and has pronounced no public opinion upon the
alleged intentions of the hereditary
coercionists. It is, too, significant
that Gladstone litis not yet spoken,
and we mny infer tliat the understanding between Parnell and the
G. O. M. is still in force. Indeed,
it would be hard to understand why
the former should wish to back out
of the alliance. At best he hns only
a half promise from the Tories,
which, of course, like pie-crust, is
meant to be broken. Upon the
other hnnd, Gladstone irretrievably
committed himself to a just and
generous policy of concession by his
introduction of a comprehensive
Home Rule Bill on April 8, 1S86.
Bearing these facts in mind, and
considering the stupid opposition
which would assuredly result upon
the part of tho aristocracy should
even a mild measure of reform be
proposed, it seems probable that
Salisbury and his colleagues are
making an unscrupulous effort to
retain oflico by trying their utmost
to persuade the* Irish people that
"Oodlin's tlieir friend, not Short."
In fine the case stands thus: On the
one hand the Irish leader is assured
of the support of a united Liberal
party (for Unionist means Tory writ
large) marching under the banner of
the greatest statesman that party
has ever had ; and on the other,
vague and indefinite promises, made
by a minister whose bete, noir has
ever been Reform—a man such us
Roderigo spoke of, whose
"Words and performances are no kin
Notwithstanding the general use
of gas and electricity in the towns
and cities of a large part of the
world, tho market for petroleum has
not been diminished, it is remarked.
There are still left many small communities and the farming populations, where petroleum must long
continue to hold its own. There
are yet large portions of the civilized, or partly civilized, globe where
petroleum has not yot come into
general use, and these are fields for
the coal oil man to conquer. Petroleum is, therefore, likely to remain
a profitable article of commerce.
Whether the supply will continue
to equal the demand has been
doubted. Some of the best petroleum districts of the United States
seem to be approaching exhaustion,
and similar reports come from the
Russian petroleum beds of the Caucasus, which have not been opened
nearly so long as the Pensylvanian.
Still, as new reservoirs are being
tapped, and us vast regions of the
globe are yet unexplored, there is
every reason to think that, however
the supply may vary, there will long
continue to be a sufficient supply to
meet, at no exorbitant price, the
demands of consumers. Perhaps
the neglected islands and coasts of
the frozen north, it has been suggested, may yet prove to be storehouses of petroleum, as well as other
valuable minora! products long after
the easily available stores of tern
perate regions are exhausted. If
this should turn out to be the case,
Arctic exploration will not, after all,
be the useless pursuit that many
people imagine it to be. Its results
may at any timo begin to take practical rhope nnd the frozen north
may some day become the home of
thriving industries.

Weekly Burr ish Columbian
Wediii'sila} Morning, Sclll. IS. 1889.
The Monetary Times, of Toronto,
has an article cm firo waste and insurance which contains so many
valuable hints to business men in all
departments that we take the liberty
of quoting from it largely, as follows : If asked who is responsible
for the enormous waste of property
by fire in Canada, and who pays for
it, most persons would probably reply: "Our neighbors carelessness,
not ours, is responsible; and the insurance companies pay most of tlie
loss." The answers are not the true
ones in either case. It has already
been shown in these columns, nnd
we are glad to find it repeated in
the important address on fire waste
by 'ilr. Frederick Wyld ut the Hamilton Convention, that the money
which pays insurance claims conies
out of the pockets of insurants in
the shape of premiums, and is not
the capital of companies. Therefore, since the people at large pay
the piper, the people at large should
be roused to take every means to
lessen the fire waste, in doing which
they reduce the cost of insurance.
In tlie .course of his paper, Mr.
Wyl'J, who is a wholesale merchant
of long experience, gave some practical Hints to his brother merchants
about their insuranco contracts and
mean-i of fire prevention, closing
with iho quotation of the Atlanta,
Georgia, lire ordinance. "The merchant who neglects to scrutinize his
insurance policies, to see that they
accurately describe what it is intended to insure, is guilty of gross
injustice to himself and his creditors," says Mr. Wyld. And yet it
has often been found that this important contract, concerning protection from fire, "had not even beeu
opened by tlio recipient until a fire
had occurred ; and then it was discovered that in consequence of this
neglect the policies were non-concurrent nnd property inaccurately desoribed, entailing delays and compromises to avoid litigation, and a
serious loss to the interests involved." Every underwriter knows
how true this statement is; and the
words negligence and gross injustice
are not too strong under the circumstances. Another matter of moment
is thut every applicant for fire insurance should give an accurate description of his premises and the
class of goods to be insured. This
description should be clearly expressed in the policy, which is the
legal document or contract given by
-the insurance compnny. Not only
this, but any alteration of premises,
removal, or change in merchandise.,
should be at once specifically endorsed on the policy and assented to
by an officer or agent of the company. The prudent merchant will
maintain insurance protection to the
extent of seventy-five pur cont. of
the value of the property insured,
says the paper in question, "and not
to do so up to this percentage, when
a disastrous fire would cause creditors' interests to suffer, should be
looked upon as criminal negligence."
This is a strong term, but we shall
not quarrel with it. It is assuredly
true that the man who under-insures
sins against himself as well as
against his creditors. Annual stocktaking and the keeping of the stock
book in a place of snfety, where lire
cannot destroy it, is properly urged
on all merchants and manufacturers,
not only as a business duty, but in
order to facilitate the adjustment of
a firo loss, should one occur. Is any
one disposed to believe that tlie frequency of fires in Canada and the
United Slates is u niatter of fatality
or dire necessity from which there
is no escape ? More than half of
them are our own fault. A careful
'estimate of the origin of fires on
this continent shows that over sixty
per cent, of the whole number arise
from preventable causes. Greater
care, order, and cleanliness in warehouse and factory, dwelling and
office, are needed, It appears from
the official report of the New York
fire commissioners that sixty-four
per eent. of the fires in that city
have been, extinguished by pails of
water. Does this not indicate the
prun'onco of placing Buch simple appliances on each floor of every mercantile building* It is the duty of
every ipi" and woman to take part
in red" . • as frightful a fire-waste
.as $S,ijOO,000 a year.
Speaking of the Jesuits Estate
Act, an eastern Canadian exchange
makes the following good point:
From lirst to last it has been assumed rather than asserted that if the
act was intra vires ot the legislature
disallowance was out of the question.
The doctrine thus insinuated is new;
it has never before been assumed by
a minister of justice that the mere
existence of tlie authority to pass an
act is sufficient to throw over the
act, when passed, tho shield of inviolability, It would bo desirable
to ascertain whether it be intended
by tho Ottawa government to affirm
that principle absolutely.

the 16th for tho transaction of business. Present—Aldermen Calbick,
Curtis, Ewen, Keary, Reid, Cunningham, MoPhadon, Jaques and Shiles.

tlie chair.
The minutes of tho last meeting
wero read and adopted,
A good sprinkling of prominent citizens was noted in the auditorium, listening with great interest.
Aid. Jaques rose to a quostion of
privilege tn reply to the remarks which
fell from Aid. Cunningham at the last
meeting. He said it was too much
the custom with Aid. Cunningham and
his colleagues to wash thoir hands
clear of anything that did not exactly
suit them. He thought tlio remark
about Chinamen doing better work on
Agnes street than those now engaged
on it, and that, nlso about the theodo-
litos, waB a pretty tough reflection on
our city engineer. At considerable
length and in no measured terms tho
worthy alderman recited the list of his
grievances and warmly presented his
argument in refutation of the charges
wliich he alleged had been made
against him in his absonco at last mooting.
Aid. Cunningham replied in a tow
concise sentences, quietly defending
tho position ho had taken at first;
maintaining that tlie work on Agnes
street was a foolish expenditure of
money, as any one could seo for himself by visiting the scene of operations.

W. N. Bole, calling attention for
the fourth timo to the rottou condition
of the sidewalks on Clarkson street;
and containing some plain talk to the
council on their duty to the ratepayers. AH. Jaques called attontion to
the fact that Dr. Mclnnis' cribbing Unci
been tho sole cause of the delay, and
that an attempt to tako it down would
cause serious trouble. Aid. Keary
hero asked his worship if it were in
order to address tho chair sitting or
standing, nnd if not the former, ho
would like to call Aid. Jaques to order. Aid. Jaques, "All right; I'm in
order." (Laughter.) Referred to the
board of works to report.
A. J. McColl, asking permission to
hinlil a tank for the use of his residence. Received and referred to tho
board of public works to roport on.

rights and property from the Coquitlam Wator Works Company, and recommend that tho Mayor bo authorized
to make an overdraft of 820,000 for
tho purpose of paying the purchase
monoy tq>t!ie company.
Aid. Shilos wanted to know what
tho engineers working botween the
Coquitlam Water Works and tho city
limits were doing, had clone, and what
thoy wero being paid.
Aid. Curtis explained fully all about
tho water works, and answorod nil tho
questions in detail. By changing tho
ruuto a saving of §2000 will bo saved to
tho oity.
Aid. Keary wanted to know how
much was due to the engincora for
Aid. Curtis said §200 a month covered tliis item.   Roport adopted.
Moved by Aid. Jaques, seconded by
Alderman Curtis, thnt clerk bo instructed to make the following offer to
Mr. A, H. McBride, warden of tlie
British Columbia penitentiary: For
right of way to tho ponitentiary
grounds, tlio city will givo tho Government tlio use of the water for fire
purposes for tho penitentiary buildings.
Aid. Keary olijected un the ground
that he had uot sufficient information.
Aid. Curtis advised the supplying of
such information in committee, and
not publicly. It is not wise to bring
up those littlo points in this way.
Aid. Cunningham concurred in this
Aid. Curtis explained further that it
was not becnuso there was business
which could not bo exposed, and the
press and the rate-payers should not
entertain that opinion, lt was a mere
matter of ordinary business, and he did
not think it necessary to go into it at
tho present time.
Aid. Calbick advised that the businoss be laid over until Aid. Keary had
gained full information on the subject.
Aid. Curtis said he did not agree
with this view; they had been humbugging long enough from month to
Tho resolution, after considerable
further discussion, and more than one
fiery ebullition of temper, was carried.
The Leases By-law was read tho second timo, and Aid. Ewen suggested
some be printed so that each alderman
could make himself familiar with tho
ins aud outs of tho by-law. This was
ordered done.
The Railway Election and Bonus
By-law was read a socond time and
the council wont into committee of the
whole, Aid. Ewen in the chair, and
the by-law was read by clauses.
Tho time fixed for lhe eleotion is the
Hth day of October.
J. D. Batcholor, Ward 1; R. Burt,
2; A. Peele, 3, and Goo. Pittendrigh,
4, wero chosen as returning officers.
Tho committee rose and reported
by-law complote. Report adopted,
and on motion by-law was road a third
time by title and passed as road.
On motion, by-lnw was directed,
signed, scaled and published.
Aid. Curtis reportod for finance
committeo that tho tender ot the Bank
of Montreal tor §65,000.00 debentures
be accepted ot 102J, and that tho manager of said bank bo notified to that
effect.   Adopted.
Tho water and sewerage committee
reported thnt they waited on Mr.
Moylan, inspector of penitentiaries,
and agreed for tho privilego of right of
way through tho penitentiary grounds,
to givo all tho wator required for tiro
purposes for penitentiary buildings.
Moved by Aid. Curtis, socondod by
Aid. Calbick-, that the clerk bo instructed to apply to Mrs. Brighouse for
transfer to city of streets of hor subdivision on St, Andrew's stroet, and
that tho clerk prepare the deed of
same.    Curried.
Aid Surtis, speaking on the amendment to the liquor license bylaw, laid
ovor from last week, said it would bo
better to have Mr. McColl revise it.
Aid. Reid said ho was surprised to hour
Aid. Curtis advise such a thing us asking a man in the omploy of the opposite party, employed to break
the bylaw, to revise it. It would bo
bottor to leavo it alono altogether than
do that. Aid. Curtis explained tbat
Mr. McColl understood tho bylaw
bolter than any one else and be was
better able to handle it. Aid. Cun-
niughiim also thought tho position a
strange one. Aid. Ewen gavo a vory
lucid anil interesting speech on tho
natural history and habits of the
lawyers: ihat tlio legal fraternity would
work just as faithfully one day for ouo
man, and, if necessary, just as hard
against him the next day. Moved by
Aid. Curtis, Hccimded by Aid. Calbick,
thnt Mr. A. J. McCull be retained to
revise and amend the liquor license
bylaw.    Carried.
The trades license amendment bylaw
was, on motion, read a lirst time, and
tho rules of ordor being suspended,
was read a second time. Council then
went int" committee of tho whole,
AM. Jaques tu the chair ; bylaw rena
„y clauses, anu pu6Sud ita seuuiid reading.
Aid. Jaques introduced abuut 15
feet of Polham street on paper, to tho
great merriment of the oouncil, showing that flno thoroughfare from end to
und. Council examined tho plan
thoroughly and entered into a long
nud exhaustive debate in which the
niatter wns most effectually throshed
out. It waa admitted on all hands
that tho treatment Pelhaiii street had
received in tho past was disgraceful
nnd unfair, bllt it was determined that
reparation should lio douo nt tho
soouostopportunity. Aid. Keary was
in n minority of one on tho amount of
tho appropriation he held out on it
being too high ; 3,500 is the amount
Aid. Roid brought up the quostion
of invitations and asked if thoy wore
being issued. The olerk hns tlio mattor
in hand and it will be ntteuded to.
Aid. Keary ask-, i! it'that narrow sidewalk leading tu the buspil.nl at Sapperton would lie continued from the
main sidewalk tu (ho hospital and
neighbourhood. His worship provoked
a roar of laughter by making a mistake
on the word "hospital" and saying
"oysters'' : tho name of tho delicioiiB
bivalve was hailed with any number
of seconders and many liumorous comments.
Aid. Curtia enquired about tho col-
lection of tho road tax and what was
being done to collect it. Aid. Curtis
beleived there wore several hundreds
of dollars which could bo collected on
percentage, nnd somo one had better
be appointed tu collect, 10 per cent,
commission, His worship called a
halt on tho cultus wa uia and the
motion to adjourn was carried with
thanks, as the hour was on tho verge
of the "high noon of night."

Ruttilllnrles of Home of tlie Uly Sermons
Spoken Sunday.
The Rev. Mr. Irwin preached at
Huly Trinity Church Sunday morning, taking for his text Galatinns Sth
chap., 1st verso ; "Standfast therefore iu the liberty wherewith Christ
hath mnde us free, and he not entangled
ugaln with the yoko of bondage." The
speaker said there must bu something
more than sentiment in Christian
liberty nud freedom. Christianity to
ti3 today is a greater thing than it was
to bo a Roman citizen when the glory
of that empire wus at its brightest. We
hear a great deal of public and private
rights, but we have rights that ate
perfect and iualienable, conferred on
our church. The ancient history of
the church is well worth close study j
our collects nnd our rules nre almost
tlie same as ttiose used many centuries
ago ; the liberty of our church is therefore guaranteed iu the strict adhesion
to the tonots of the early ohuroh. It
is our duty to ask ourselves the question, "Are we standing fast in the
faith Christ gave us I" for there is a
great difference between Christian
practice uf to-day aud that of nineteen
centuries ngo. If we stood as fast for
our religious rights, and were aB
urgent iu demanding and enforcing
them as we aro when oivil rights are
concerned, there would be nothing to
fear for our faith. But let our religious rights be once sure nnd our civil
rights must be safe. If we guard well
the faith we will have reason to thank
God for that liberty whereby He hath
made us free.
At the Baptist ohurch on Sunday,
Mr. Fisher supplied for Rer. Thos.
Baldwin, who went over to Vancouver to assist in the opening services of
the new Baptist church there. Mr.
Fisher took as his text, John, 4c.,10v:
"Jesus answered and Baid unto her,
If thou knewoit tho gift of God, and
Who it is that siiith to thee, give Me to
drink; thou wouldest have asked of
Him and He would have given thee
living water." His remarks were substantially ns follows: Jesus, at the
opening of His ministry, soon perceived that the Pharisees were unfriendly to Him. Jesus thought it
best to return to Galilee, choosing the
route through Samaria. The bitter
feeling and hostility of the Samaritans
had nu power over Him and He simply choso this route, as we would
think, becauso ot its being the shortest ; but this wns not the only reason,
howovor. Ho wns nenr Sychnr, and
feeling tired, He needed rest and refreshment, and He sat down at the
well which wnB thore. Jesus, wearied,
sat thus on the well. He is aroused by
a woman of Samaria. There waa
nothing strange, apparently, in hor
coming, she had drawn water there
hundreds of times before; this would
havo been her answer if she had been
nsked prior to her going to the well,
why sho wont there; but when she
left it, her answor would have been
different, for results infinite and eternal depended on hor coming to the well
tlmt day; thero was nu interruption in
tho divine teaching. As alio approached, she perceived that 116 was a
Jow, and perfectly ignored Him, and
as the rule with the Samaritans, sho
would givo contempt tbl! contempt,
scorn fur scorn, nnd would hnve ro-
turned without hearing a word had
not Josus insisted in talking  to  her.
ignoring the Samaritan prejudices; "I
havo walked far and inn wearied with
the heat, give Mo to drink." He took
the initiative and upuned up the conversation; that eventually proved salvation to her; she is surprised, and
returns, "How is it tliat Thou being a
Jew, askest drink of me, which am a
womun of Samaria?" Tho thought of
how the Jews had hindered tho erection of their building would naturally
raise hostility iu her mind, aa woll ns
tho feeling of religious hostility. The
animosity was great, yet her curiosity
wus uroused and compelled her to
question Him; Ho nnswered in the
words of the text; not only was He
willing to speak, but to givo
something higher, nobler, tho living
wnter, the infinite gift of eternal life,
if she would only ask. "Sir, thou
hast nothing to draw with, from
whence then hast tliou tliis living
water'!" Then Jesus preached the
moat subline sermon ever uttered, and
to this lono woman, "Gud is a spirit,
anil they that worship Him must worship Him in spirit and in truth," This
is the Saviour's way, talking to tho
leper, tlio beggar, the publicans, fishermen, the women and children. Jesus
was tho greatest democrat tlie world
has ever known. Altar commenting
upon the fact lhat all guod gifts come
frum Ond, the speaker assured his
hearers that there was ono good thing
that, they could nut earn ur merit, but
must accept as nn absolute gift, and
concluded by warning them of the returning' thirst after drinking from
fountains created by themselves, and
giving the invitations; "If any man
thirst, let him cumo unto Me and
drink." The Spirit and tlio Bride sny
como, nud let liim that heareth say
come, and let him that cometh drink
of tlie water of life freely.
An Eutfi'i'stiiig Interview Willi Mr. .Inliii
,11c\iilit VorlEiei-n Fishery Ciiiiirillnii.
I-nrllcnlnrs nlumt Flsb, Timber
null lairgo finnie.
Mr. John McNnb, guardian of the
north coast fisheries arrived home from
from the ninth laat Saturday. A representative of The Columiiian called on
Mr. McNab at his residence on Agnes
streot, nnd was cheerfully given every
information about matters in the
north. Tlio trouble with the Indians
about taking out licenses has been
amicably settled. The Indians became possessed of the idea that if thoy
paid the fishing license tiiey would
bavo to pay ulso all the taxes white
men have tu pay. By dint of patient
explanation nnd assurances that they
were mistaken, tlie wary Siwashes
wero at length induend to comply with
the law, and the ring being now broken no further trouble on this head
need be feared. Thero uro three canneries in full blast on the Skeena and
Naas rivers, the; nre equipped with
all the latest additions to the soienee
of canning, but unfortunately the run
was not heavy this season and owing
to the great scarcity of box lumber,
the shipments were seriously delayed.
Two saw mills on iho coast, one at
Port Simpson and tho other near the
mouth of the Skeena, cannot supply
the demand for timber and have to
work night and day to fill theii orders.
Deep sea fishing is attracting great
attention at the present time and is
likely to develop into an industry of
much importance.
Mr. McNnb has a photograph of
the Naas cannery taken this summer.
The picture shows an establishment
not inferior in size to any of the Fruser institutions, and situated in a location very favorablo for such work.
The mountains behind are capped with
snow, although the photograph was
taken in mid-summer, and along the
valley at the base of the hills there is a
forest of big timber.
Communication with the north is of
weekly occurrence now, as the Alaska
steamers call in regularly on their way
north and returning. The British naval squadron called at Port Simpson
on its way lo Behring Sea, much to
the delight of the inhabitants of that
quiet town.
At Port Essington, on the Skecuu,
about a dozen white families live all
the year round, but the men employed in the canneries take their departure on the approach of the cold
weather and return in the ipring.
Whito men are gradually taking the
place of Indian labor in the fishing and
cannery work, Mr. McNab related
somo interesting incidents illustrative
of the Indian character. As is known,
the government is very desirous of
abolishing the Indian "potlatch" fur
reasons that aro evident to every ono
who hns ever seen this Indian Mardi
Gras. But the natives do not relish
the idea of this ancient, if not honorable, oustom being swept away, and
one of thom, an elderly man of intelligent appearance, gave Mr. McNab a
"piece of his mind" on the subject, he
said, "The whito man is not just, if
you go to Europe, Russia, France, Germany, you find that there are rich men
aud poor mou, the pour iiiou want to
get some of the rich men's money and
so they do bad things often; this has
troubled the white man long, how to
make equal the money. Now, the Indians Bolved that ages ago. When
the Indian gets rioh he invites hiB nation to a grand feast and spends all
hia money liko a good man." It would
have been cruel to point out to this
Siwnsh philosopher the flaws in his
theory; but the above remarks may
perhaps servo to show that the Northern Indian is a vastly different being
to his supposed brother of the plains
and the east. Another Siwash gavo a
surprising exhibition of keen nud out-
ting sarcasm onn day. Mr. McNab
had ordered this man's bout nnd not
confiscated in default of payment of
liconBO, nud was in tho store when tho
Indian came in; jerking his thumb ovor
his shoulder in tlie direction of Mr.
McNab, the man remarked to tho
storo keeper, "lie make government
vory rich, ho grent man, vory clover."
What do you mean, who is it?"
"Hiin," said the Siwash, "ho tike my
boat and net, oh, hn smart, he make
government; vory rich if ho ltoep on,
but they were no good anyway, the
boat Mas rotten and so was tho net."
Ho eventually   teok out a license.
The limber in the region uf the Naas
and Skeena is mainly spruce, and although some of it is in line sticks, it
would hardly pay to establish mills so
far nortii.
Big game fs abundant and cinnamon
and black bear, gray timber wolves,
caribou and elk are plentiful. Mr.
McNab thinks AlaBka will never
amount to much; it is very greatly
over-rated—far beyond what it is
worth; there is nu timber uf any account, and only ono guod guld mine,
tliat un Douglas Inland. Four hundred men who ivent to mine gold on
the Yukon, are, at the present time,
in a very awkward position, and if not
soon rescued or heard from will perish
miserably from starvation und the
rigors uf the Altnkau winter,
The Indians uf the coast nil profess
Christianity, and although buhl, even
haughty, and independent, are quiet,
orderly people, witli an admirable trait
for minding tlieir uwn business. Thero
aro twu Episoopalian teachers un the
coast, but, strange to sny, no representative if ','ie Cntholic Ohuroh. The
Indians i f the ju'teriur are still wtldaud
untamable pagans, clinging lu the ancestral fetiches "ith true savage ardor.
Selfishness is the principal trait uf
the Siwash character, They are intensely seltish and have no consideration fur anybody but themselves.
Another photograph showing two
fine Btieciuiens nf Indian manhood,
was shnwii by Mr. McNab. One of
the moo, a Hydah, is a splendid man,
muscular and strong, and with a remarkably intelligent faco. This is tho
genoral style of iho north coast Indians; .they are hardy, strong and
fearless, and only tu lie subjugated by
the bated gunboat. Every Indian ou
tlio coast has a rille, generally a 10-
shot Winchester ur other improved
pattorn, besides otlier arms, and they
nre a olass uf people best left alnne.
In speaking uf the ruggodness of the
Skeena, Mr. McNab remarked that a
hundred well armed men could defy
an army in such a place.
Sutue uf tho Indians cleared over a
thousand dollars each by this year's
fishing, and one of them whu hud been
furnished with n seine und paid so
much per fish by one uf the canners,
sent to Viotoria and ordered a white
marble monument for himself out nf
his savings. This monument cost
about 8S00 and will be placed nt tho
head of the owner, when ho is dead
and buried. On the whole, the fishing
outlook on the uorth coast is satisfactory and more white people are going
north each succeeding yoar.

Serious Accident.
At, the Royal City Planing Mills,
yesterday morning, a man named John
McMartin was severely injured on tho
head, bohind the right ear, by coming
into contact with suine of the running
machinery. Just how tho accident
happened cannot be learned as no one
saw it occur, but it is supposed McMartin took un epileptic fit and fell,
striking his head ugainst the machinery.
The injured man was removed to St.
Mary's hospital, whero ho lay ill an
uncoiisciuus state for many hours.
His case ia very serious, but Dr. Fagan entertains strong hopes for his recovery, and thinks lie will soon be out
of danger.

Tho supposed case of suicide, reported in these columns in Monday's

by hanging, dipt. Odin ran out of his
course a distanco of three miles to
investigate the circumstances and
report decisively to the authorities if
necessary. Tlio steamer was run close
to the bank, a short distance from the

Tho lirst gamo lasted one hour and 20

llrlllsh Columliln Kaolins Slate.
An important discovery of roofing
slate has been made on Howe Sound
by Mr. W. H. Rowling, of the North
Ann. Although the quarry has not
been developed to any extent yet, tha
indications are that the supply of slate
will bo inexhaustable. Mr. Rowling
brought to Tub Columbian oilice, today, two pieces of slate, just as it was
as it was taken from tho quarry. It
is of good color and grain, one eighth
of an inch in thickness and surprisingly strong. A number of persons
who are acquainted with the qualities
that should be contained good workable state, pronounce these samples
first class. Mr. Rowling thinks the
whole mountain in which his quarry
is located, will prove, on development, a solid bed of slate. The neighborhood ia being thoroughly prospected for now finds. Mr. Rowling has
not decided yet whether ho will work
the quarry or dispose of it to capitalists, At present the market for
slate is vory limited iu this province,
but if it could be laid down at a reasonable prico the demand would soon
be large. The discovery is most important and is sure to prove  vnluablo
to the owner.
Tbe Choir Concert.
The Holy Trinity choir concert last
night was one of unusual merit,
wonderfully freo from weak points,
and on the whole a credit to the choir
and each individual member of it.
Tlio hall was not so well filled its it
might have been, probably from the
fact that the price of tickets was fixed
at a higher figure than is usual for
such entertainments in this city; still,
tho audience was sufficiently large to
encourage the performers, and, on the
whole, the proceeds of the evening
aro considered satisfactory. Bishop
Sillitoe conducted the singing, the
part songs, especially, giving true
ovidence of his careful tutoring. The
programme wos as follows : Part. 1.—
Part tong, "Autumn Song," The
choir; song, "He will forgive," Mr.
Hamber ; Bong, "Two Wings," Mrs.
Moresby; duet, "II Pescatore," Mrs.
Sillitoe and Miss McBride ; song,
"The Scout," Mr. Dockerill; song,
"White Wings," Miss McBride; song,
'•The Ferryman," Mr. Rickman ; trio,
"Memory," Mrs. Moresby, Mrs.
Sillitoe ond Mrs. Wolfenden. Part
2.—Song, "The River of Years," Mrs.
Sillitoe ; part song, "On the Water,"
The choir ; song, "When the heart is
young," Miss McBride ; song, "Will
o' the Wisp," Mr. Dockerill; trio,
"Perfida Ohlori," Mrs. Sillitoe, Mrs.
Moresby and Miss McBride ; song,
"In old Madrid," Mr. Hamber ; song,
"Marguerite," Mrs. Moresby ; part
song, "Old Daddy Long Legs," The
choir; "God save the Queen." The
part songs wero all admirably rendered,
the laat, "Old Daddy Long Legs," being
the success of the evening. Miss McBride was in excellent voico, and was
never heard to better advantage. Mrs
Sdlitoo and Mrs. MoroBby, as usual,
sang delightfully. Mr. Dockerill'a
rendition was effective and spirited,
and Mr. Hamber's songs weru thoroughly appreciated. Mr. Rickman, always
a favorite, sustained his good reputation and proved himself as popular
as over. Tho trio "Memory," by Mrs.
Sillitoe, Mrs. Moresby and Mrs.
Wolfenden. was au excellent performance.
Summary of the I'rocceiUngB ot Hie two
liny Sessions ii-iil or lln- l-ulilie Conference last Xlgiil.—Nes.1 -Heeling at UainlooiiH.
At the Presbyterian conference yes-
tereay aftornoon the time was mainly
taken up by the discussions on the
circulars issued for financial schemos
connected with tho church, and appointing standing committees, tho two
principal of which are tho financial
committee, composed of Rev. John
Chisholm, J. K. Wright and 11. Jauiie-
son: mid tho temperance committee',
Revs. T. Scouler, D. Fraser, J. K.
Wright, D. 0. MoMorris and Huu.
John Robson.
Pursuant to announcement, nn open
conference of the Prcsbytory wus held
last night in St. Andrew's church, bu
ginning at 8 o'clock. All the ministers
and elders attending tho Presbytery
session wore present and a considerable number of the public, mostly
members of the congregation, besides.
Tho meeting wos opened by singing,
followed by prayer by Rev. Mr. Tait,
of Langley, who was also tho chairman
of the evening and introduced 'tho
vatious ministers who were to speak
upon t!.'.' different subject! to como be
fore the conference. The chairman
stated that it was the desire of the
Presbytery to awaken a general internal in tho work of the ohurch, home
and foroign, und it waBwith this object
the subjects which would bo discussed
were brought before the conference.
Rev. Mr. Frasor, of Victoria, was
then introducod und spoKe briefly, but
interestingly on home missions. It
waB inoro than a quarter of a century
Bince he hud lirst bocoino connected
with hums mission work in Ontario,
and it had beon his lot to labor among
mission presbyteries all his life, ln all
his experience he did not know that ho
had ever been ungagetf in work moro
truly interesting than the work in this
province. Tho Presbyterian church in
Canada was engaged in a great work
amongst new and diverse elements.
When the success that, wan attending
the aol'k   wns   considered,   ihere was
every reason to thank God for His
blessing upon it. The speaker continued, when ho cast hia eye baok over
the last quarter of a century, the development had been simply marvellous, especially sinco tho union of
1875. Underlying the work of the
Presbyterian church, and especially
the home mission work, there were two
great principles, The first was embodied in the words of Christ Himself;
"Compel them to come, ill that My
house may be filled." The otlier principle might be embodied in, these
words: "Bear ye one another's burdens, and so fulfill the law of Christ."
The first principle has reference to
those that are outside, the second is
addressed to God's children. Coming
to the church in this province, the
Presbytery of Columbia was organized
threo years ago, in August, 188B.
Thore were then six ministers of the
Canadian church in tho province and
threo belonging to tho church of Scotland. To-day there uro sixteen laborers in connection with the church of
Canada and throe connocted with tho
Scuttish branch. Throughout the
Northwest thu development had beon
marvellous during the last quartorof
a century.
Rev. Mr. McLaren, of Vancouver,
was next callod ou, and gn"e a graphic
sketch of the foreign mission field. He
hud listened wilh the greatest interest
to the striking account they had just
heard of tho development of the homo
mission work. Two congregations 18
years ago, between Lako Ontario snd
the Rocky Mountains, as against 400
now, was certainly "" inspiring record.
There was no injustice in saying that
20 years ago tho Canadian Presbyterian
ohuroh knew comparatively little of
foreign mission work, but the speaker
showed that nil was different now and
tliat the ohurch was doing a great, work
in all lauds.
Rev. Mr. Ross, of Chilliwack, was
tho next speaker and he dwelt upon
the questiou of Sabbath observance,
mentioning tho different forms of Sabbath desecration. As a remedy he
thought that Sabbath observance
should be more impressed upon congregations and taught in tho Sabbath
schools, and by parents to their children, aud that Sabbath breakers should
be spoken to about tho sin and Iobs to
themselves in desecrating the Sabbath.
Rev. Mr. Jaffray, of the Nortii Arm,
also spoke briefly on this subject. He
had noticed that many young men,
otherwise apparently moral and of good
lives, seemed to think it no harm to go
on hunting, fishing, or pleasure excursions on tho Lord's day. The speaker
drew au illustration from the dyked
lands of the North Arm, and compared
this sort of Sabbath breaking to that of
the passers-by kicking holes in a dyke
and eventually letting in tho groat sea
of worldliness uud sin. Before wo
could-expect good Sabbath observance
laws and their enforcement, the church
and Christians generally and individually must cultivate and manifest a
great reverence and regard for the day.
Rev. Mr. Wright, of Spallumcheen,
who had very recently come to lhe
province and was engaged in mission
work in tho interior, thia boing hia lirst
meeting with the Presbytery of Columbia, was called on to speak on the subject of systematic beneficence, but,
owing to the lateness of the hour, lie
said he could not begin to do tho subject justice, nud ho was sure the audience would gladly excuse liim.
The meeting closed with the Dox-
ology ami benediction.
Wednesday's session.
To-day's session of tho Presbytery
opened this morning at. 9 o'clock,
tho moderator, Rov. Mr. Tait, of
Langley, iu tlie chair. Preaent, Revs.

Dunn, Whantiock; G. 1). McLaren,
Vancouvor; John J. Jaffray, North
Arm; J. K. Wright, Spallumcheen;
J. Chisholm, Kamloops; W. R. Ross,
Chilliwhack;  J.  Miller, Nanaimo.
Rev. Mr. Chisholm gave a very interesting ucoount of n visit of exploration through tho Okanagon and Kettle
River districts. A lengthy discussion
occurred as to the appointing of the
Reverend Dr. Warron, Into of tho
Cumberland Presbyterian church, us a
member of tho Presbytery. Dr. Warren had presented his credentials, bllt
explained that Iub diplomas of college
training and education had ali been,
unfortunately, consumed at the burning of his houso. He had, however,
mado efforts to obtain copies of nil
those documents, all hough the search
was attended wiih great difficulty. Dr.
Warron was naked tn supply the Dultn
and accepted thu nomination.
The Kev. Mr. Frusor was appointed
to visit the mission Holds of the province, and Rev. Mr. McLeod lo dispense
thu communion al Alberni next Sunday.
Each minister present was fully instructed with regard tn getting the petitions for Sabbath observance signed
by their congregations. Tlio Rov. Mr.
McLeod'nlude a.Btroiig appeal for tho
energetic handling of theso petitions,
ami said thoy must be all in beforo tbo
loth of December next. Ho also reflected heavily on the present composition of the provincial government.
All tho t'overoud gentlemen present
took away copies uf the petition, wiih
full instructions
Tins being all tho business for transaction by the conference, the moderator announced thnt the next meeting
of tlio Presbytery would take placo at
Kamloops, December Ilth, 1889, and
after pronouncing tho benediction the
conference came to an ond.
Most of tho members partook of tho
hospitality of the Rov. Mr. and Mrs.

talent to the city from Vancouver, thu
organist mid representatives of tlio
different Vancouver churcheB. At tbe

Peters played a number of Batiste's
beautiful ond intricate voluntaries.
The party then sung in chorus accompanied on the vocalion by one of their
number. Then tho instrument's finer
qualities wero tested in nocompnnying
nolo singing; thon marches, preludes,
postludes, introductions, tarantellas,
nocturnes, fugues, sonatas, nnd everything known in organ musio was tried
successfully on the vocalion. It is
gratifying to record thnt ovoryono prosent wits delighted with the powors and
quality of the instrument, and it may
safely bo relegated to the proud position of "tho best in tho cily."

tiled of Ills Injuries.
The man McMartin injured at the
Royal Oity Planing Mills on Tuesday
niornnig, died at an early hour this
morning at St. Mary's hospital. From
the time the of accident till last evening,
McMartin lay in a stato of coma.
About 5 o'clock last evening he recovered consciousnesss, nud complained
that he felt a maddening pain in his
head, which Dr. Fagan believed to be
caused by hemorrhage on to tho brain.
He continued to grow worse and finally
wont into fits, in the last of which ho
died in great agony. As far as cau be
can be learned the deceased has no
friends in Westminster, and even the
place of his birth is unknown. It has
not beeu decided yot whether or not
an inquest will be considered necessary by the authorities.
The llynclt Racers.
The Hyack racing team left for Tacoma this afternoon, via Vancouver, to
take part in the firemen's tournament
for which they have beon steadily preparing for several weeks. The learn
has been worked down into thu pink of

Geo. Pittendrigh, Jos. Stirsky, John
Oliver, Guy Hall, Wm. Hill, J. Man-
boii, John Albro, Wm. Anderson, R.
Ross, D. Mitchell, David Gray, and
Win. Murray. Mr. S. Woods accompanies the team as foreman, and his
knowledge of sporting matters is sure
to be of great benefit to the Hyacks,
who place in his hands their entire
management. A large number of admirers of the Hyacks gathered at the

Heavy Blasts.
Every ovening a dozen or more
heavy blasts are set off on Queen's park
and not without considerable danger
to the residents of that locality. Su
heavy oro the explosions that houses
moro than a mile nway are susceptible
to thu shock, while in those near at
hand glassware has to bo kept on a
bread foundation. \ few evenings
ago a largo stump was blown to pieces,
and ono of the fragments, about 4 feet
long by 18 inches thick, shot high up
into tho air and fell 300 yards distant,
on the old rille range, with such forco
as to sink itsolf into tho well-beaten
roadway. It ia needless to nny that
had this missile struck a man or beast
the results would have been fatal.
Moro oare should bo observed iu blasting, and the charges made sufficiently
moderate to preclude the possibility
of accident to persons more than
150 yards distant.

Koulency -nines.
Messrs. i*. Kowitt, superintendent
of thu Oould und Curry und Bost and

secretary of the Coinstock, Virginia
City, wore in Spokane FallB last weok,
ou their wny from tho Kootenoy country to San Francisco. Thoy had been
inspecting the Hall mine and othors,
with a viow of making investments
for the Mackay combination. They
wero close mouthed poople, and it is
not known what their recommendation will be, but it is known
that tho owners of the Hall are not
particularly anxious to soil, ub it is
understood that thoy have been tempted with offers in thu neighborhood of
half a million, Tho Kootenay prospectors, however, ore vory hopeful, on account of tho probability of enlisting
some of tho Mackny capital in that
country, as it would signify large investments   and  rapid development,
John McDonald, secretary of the Silver King, in Kootenay district, reports
that the last shipment of forty tons
gave them S300 in silver aud thirty
per cent copper, also $4 gold to the
Lynx-eyed Billy.
A rather curious case came before
the polico magistrate this moruing.
Constable Billy, the eaglo-eyed native
policeman of tho Sylvan swamp, the
terror of Siwash evil-doors and the
bane of whiskey peddlers, while making his rounds yesterday under the
Front street roadway, oamo across nn
Indian and a whito man loading a
canoe. The whilo man, whose name
is James Greer, bunded his Si wash
companion a bottle of whiskey, which
the luttor took hold of, but had no
sooner touched than Constable Billy
whipped out his hand-cuffs mid linked
both Greer and the Indian together.
After seizing tho whiskoy ho marched
his prisoners to the police station and
locked them up. They were admitted
tn bail and this morning appeared before the court for a hearing. Grepr
claimed that ho had simply handed the
bottle to Capt. John, to place m tho
canoe, and thnt ho was taking the beverage over to his ranch for personal
use. Capt. John bravely swore to tho
same effect, and, as thero waa no substantial grounds to convict on, both
wero released with a caution. Con-
stablo Billy sddressod the court at
some length and concluded his harangue by pronouncing Capt. John a
"very big liar" for a small man.
The Unite sound sime Quarry.
Mr. W. H. Rowling, of the North
Arm, who discovered the slate quarry
on Howe Sound was in the city to-day
and called at this office. Ho states
that the quarry is situated at the head
of Howe Sound, directly opposito tho
north end of Gambier Island. The
samples mken out for exhibition were
obtained 4 feet from the surface, ond
tho shito is more promising the deepor
the excavation is mad.-. Mr. Rowling
haa decided to oither form a company
or sell an interest in the claim. If he
decides on the latter plan the sale will
be by tender. The quarry is most
advantageously Bituated. The largest
vessel afloat can lie within four yards
of the quarry, nnd all waste can be
dumped into the sound at the mouth
of the claim. This latter is a very
important feature, one of the greatest
itomB in tho production of siato in
Woles being the cost of removing the
refuse from tho quarry. About a mile
back from the quarry is a valuable
water power, whieh can bo used, if
neceeaory, for running the machinery.
Another valuable discovery has been
made on tho same lot, in the shape of
what iB supposed to be a bed of pipe
clay, 6 feet thick. Some of the clay
has been sent to an expert for an
opinion, but all who have Been it
deolare it to be the genuine thing.
Altogether, Mr. Rowling is greatly
dated over his find, which he looks on
as a veritable bonanza.

Truth Conlraillclcd.
Editor Columbian.—Sik i May I bo
permitted to correct au editorial in this
morning's Truth wherein the writer goes
out of his wny to enst aspersions upon
John Burns, the London Socialist leader
of the strikers. 1 worked side liy sido
with Burns iu 1885, nt the general election, when Mr, J. O'Connor Power contested Kensington ; and recently, Mark
Boaufoy, who was returned to take his
scat in the houso of commons as Liberal
mombor for tlie same constituency, openly stated tlmt, his best worker wnB Burns,
and that to hiin ho owed his success.
Mr. Beaufoy is u manufacturer, employs
noarly1,000 workmon and comes'of a
good stoek. Such a map surely is hardly
likely to bo friendly to an "uncompromising revolutionist" who would, if ho
could, destroy, Loudon ill 24 hours. The
Bishop of London and Cardinal Manning
are no revolutionists, but they recognize
that Bums is thufepokesman of n griov-
ancu aad no ''firebrand." Burns nevor
told "tramps to loot shops," uud the
Trafalgar Square riots would have been
more serious but for his inllnencc. Burns
ia undoubtedly a Socialist, but so are
William Moi'ris,'tbe poet, ami Walter
Crane, tin- artist; aud irei-doiii ol opinion
certainly should lie uo uiiiue in tiiuu'oS
of il man who edits "Truth: 1 know
Burns, nml although 1 oanuot agree, with
his wholo political creed, 1 believe him
to be a man of honor and integrity.

The Cohoe Itnn.
Although a number of tho cannory-

market price of canned salmon, yet
there are not a few of tho packers who
will take advantage of the run and increase their present pack as largely as
possible. An effort was mado by a
few oftho leading packers to como to
an agt'coment not to can any more fish

Tldill Wave on Hie Fraser.
On Wednesday morning at 1:45
o'clock a tidal wave, of small magnitude, struck the Fraser river, the
wator rising and subsiding three times
with a rushing sound that surprised
and startled thoso who witnessed the
phenomenon. The surface of the river
was pericotly calm at the time and tho
moon waa shining brightly, so there is
no guesB work us to the exactness of
tbo occurrence. The water Beemed to
rise up from tho bed of the rivor and
rush over to each Bhore, the waves
reaching a foot higher than the then
present water mark. Threo times this
occurred and then the water resumed
its placidity again. Had this wave
any connection with the great tidal
wave that swept tho Atlantic coast on
tho previous day?
Cnpt. John wns Untruthful.

Capt. John, the rascally SIwsbIi
who sworo yeBterday that Greer had
not attempted to supply him with
whisky, was so smitten by his conscience after leaving court that he
went to his spiritual adviser and
openly confessed to him that ho had
lied in his evidenco. The Rov.
Father ordered him to ropoat his confession to Mr. MoTiernan, Indian
Agent, which ho did, deeply regretting
that he had departed from the truth,
and acknowledging that tho epithots
addroBsod to him by Constablo Billy
wero fully justified. Capt. John lied
so effectively, yestorday, that ho wob
honorably acquitted of the charge
laid against him, therefore ho could
not be triod again for the same offence,
and Mr. McTieman had to bo satisfied
with giving the Siwash a few hints on
the valuo of evading the polioe court
for tho future.
The Latest Mill Property l'nrelinse.
The sale of the Hastings Saw Mills
Co., of Vancouver, to tho Royal Oity
Planing Mills Co., of thia city, which
hns been in negotiation for the last
three montha, was concluded a few
days ago. By this sale the Royal City
Planing Mills Co. acquires the whole
property of the Hastings Saw Mills
Co., including mill site, water frontage, machinery, timber limits, steamers, otc. The negotiations of the purchase wero conducted by Mr. John
Hendry, who is now nt the head of the
most extensive lumbering company on
the British Columbia coast. The
Hastings mills will be enlarged and
considerably improved, and its present
capacity greatly increased. Special attention will be paid to the export
trade, which the new management intends to increase largely. The sale is
ono of the largest and most important
ever concluded in connection with the
lumber industry of tho province.

nud aucrcnsinc; Business.
Au industry of which tho oity has
good cauoe to foel proud is tho Pacific
Carriago Works, operated by MosBrs.
Reid &, Currie. From very humble
beginnings the Pacific Carriage Works
has grown into a business with more
than a provincial reputation, A representative of The Columbian strolled
iu tbero this morning, and button-
hiding the senior partner, Mr. John
Reid, obtained the following information: The company have employed
twenty-five bunds nearly all summer,
and last spring, owing to heavy cannery orders, had m work night and
day. About §5,000 or SO.OOO worth
of cannery work has boon done by
Messrs. Reid Ss Currie, wliich ill the

All kinds of machinery are repaired in

much too small to meot tiio demands
of the business, and tho firm are putting in a 20 horau-power engine with a
1400 cut driving wheel to run tho machinery.
In ihe foundry is tho new cupola,

view to tho belter handling of heavy
work. Upstairs in the carriage department tbo same busy octivity that
characterizes the machino shop and
foundry can be noted. A fino phaston
has just been finished for Aid, Keary,
and is a credit to the shop. Messrs.
Roid & Currie will send several buggies manufactured at their works to
the exhibition. They hnve sold this
season three oar loads of buggies, waggons and otlier vehicles in Westminster and neighborhood; also about a
car load of carriage material. The
firm are agents for almost every kind
of machinery, marino, stationery, cannery, lumbering and pumping, and
have supplied largo orders to the Royal
City Planing Mills, Brunette Sawmills,
Ross-McLaren Milla, Gilley Bros.,
brick and tile making machinery to
tho Pottery Works, besides sending
heavy consignments to Vancouver and
Victoria. They supplied, lately, one
of the largest pumps in tho country to
tho Royal City Ploning Mills for firo
protection. The lirm are agents for
the Williams Foundry and Machinery
Company, of Toronto, perhaps the
largest dealers in machinery in tho
Dominion, and they have on hand, at

demands of their business.
Police Court.
(Before T. C. Atkinson. P. JI., aud 1'. McTieman, .1. P.)
It is many long montha since the
polico court held such an array of the
youth and beauty and old age and
ugliness, of the noble Siwash family
as it did thia morning. The auditorium was almost packed with the
sleepy-eyed Indians, nnd had the
court oharged an admission foe the
receipts would hnvo beon sufficiently
large to make even the eyes of Constable Smith water at the sight. The
cause for tho assembling of this vast
multitude of Bwampish humanity was
tho arrest of a dusky maiden, named
Lucy, who, it appears ia one of the
leading lights and fashion patterns of
all Siwashtown. She was nccused of
having on intoxicant in her possession,
which she frankly admitted, and
smiled pensively aa Constable Smith
lifted the identical bottlo from the
table and gave it a vigorous sniff. The
constable smiled also, evidently
pleased with its contents, and carefully
placed the bottle to oue side. After
considering the case the court decided to remand Lucy for sentence.
Wm. Roe got somewhat the worse
of firewater yesterday afternoon and
lay down on the railway track to sleep
off ils effects. A passing Siwash
gently lifted hiin from his dangerous
position and placed him in the nice
Boft mud in the ditch. William objected to this attention and returned
to the track, where constable Smith
found him fast asleep. Fined $2.50
or 10 days.
Wm. Dryfield pleaded not guilty to
supplying whisky to a Squamish
Indian named Charley, but both
Charley and constable Billy swore
differently and he was lined 850 and
sentenced to one month in gaol with
hard labor.
Thos. Andrews was identified by
Lucy, and other witnesses, as the
person who had supplied her with the
whisky that caused her orreat. He
wos fined 850 and one month's im-
John Johnson, a Swede with a
wonderful liking for water, pleaded
not guilty to tho chargo of supplying
gin to a Hydah Indian named Johu.
The latter, however, swore to tho contrary and the court imposed tho usual
?50 line.

It has been decided to light the exhibition building with gas, and the gas

havo decidod to give a concert in tho
old church building on Friday evening, 20th inst, and have been preparing for the event for some weeks back.
The programme, of which the following ia o oopy, will give an idea of the
treat that may be expeoted: Greeting

church is noted for doing everything
well, it will not be, a surprise to tho
public to learn that ut tho close of the
concert refreshments will be served to
the audience. As the hospitality of

considering the short ponod the claim
has been working under the now own-

reported that tho tirst clean up had resulted in seven ounoes of gold dust,

In writing on the subject of the
Southern Railway, it few weeks ago,
in anticipation of a proposed new
agreement between the city nnd the
compnny antl tho company and the
contractor, we mentioned two points,
at least, which it was desirable
should bo explicitly stated and understood, viz., that tho particular
limits should be defined in the agree-
•nent within which the main bridge
over tho Frasor should strike thu
north bank of the river at this city,
and that the full amount of the
bonus of $160,000 should bo paid to
tho company upon tho completion ni
the roud to Bellingham Bay with
certain othor necessary nnd accompanying works, and not before.
The stipulation with regard to tho
bridge, we nre glad to notice, has
been satisfactorily incorporated in
the agreement its published Thursday ; and, whilo the bonus is not
provided to be paid in the manner
suggested, clause seven of the
agreement between the city nnd
the oompany (providing for tlie
reverting of lands to the city, and
also for the refunding of the bonus,
in tho event of the company failing
to fulfil its agreement) insures
the city against all loss in any
event. So far the city's interests
seem well protected and the agreement as a whole to be the most fair
and advantageous for the city yet
made in railway matters. Clause
fivo of the agreement between the
company and the contractor might,
however, we think, in the interests
of the city, be more explicit than it
is, in so far as it refers to the steam
ferry which is to bo constructed
and maintained in case the contractor should decide not to build
the bridge at once. The bridge, it
is clearly stated, will be a free traffic
as well as a railway bridge, and the
ferry, which may havo to serve in
lieu of the bridge for a few years,
should not be less. We trust that
it may yet be possible to make
clause live of the agreement between
the company and the contractor
more explicit on this point. Such
may be the present intention of tho
clause, but it does not appear to us
to be sufficiently clear on so important a matter. The agreement and
also the by-law, it has been seen, provide for a compensation fund of
$5,000, out of wliich it is agreed to
reimburse the company for actual
expenditures (not being moneys expended in construction) mnde by it
since the ratification of the Sheafe
contract, last year. The $5,000,
however, will not be handed over
absolutely to the company, but so
much of it as may be proper will be
paid by the city council to the company, on the detailed statement of
the company's expenditures being
submitted to the council in tho same
manner as any ordinary account.
Fish-culture by means of hatcheries has undoubtedly passed beyond
the experimental stage and is being
more widely recognized every day
as a certain and satisfactory method
whereby depleted fish streams may
be re-stocked, depletion itself checked
and prevented, and an increased
productiveness realized and maintained. The inspector of fisheries
has kindly called our attention to
an article in the current number of
Forest and Stream, entitled "a British Fish Hatchery," "by an English
fishery commissioner," which shows
the very large importance that our
nearly always conservative friends
in the Old Oountry are beginning to
attach to fish-culture as a means of
restoring fished out and barren
streams and other waters to their
former or even greater productiveness. "In consequence of the depleted condition of many of the
rivers in the United Kingdom,"
says the writer of the article referred
to, "rendered so by the multifarious
malpractices of mankind, the science
of fish-culture has become a rocog
nized necessity, and is now resorted
to ns a means of resuscitating barren locations and restoring decayed
fisheries to a condition of plenteous-
ness. During the past fow years a
steady advance has been made in
the science and not only has the
n'uniuer ot fish-culture establishments
increased, uu. the methods of hatching and -•"■icing fish through tho
various stages of development have
undergone great improvements, so
that the science has now been
brought within the range of practical utility. At the present timo
the demands for fish wherewith to
stock waters are in excess of supplies, and coarse fish are quite as
mueh nouded ns trout. Being impressed with the largo amount of
decay that prevails in our rivers and
tho depleted condition of waters
capable of sustainilig fish, and roeog-
lishment. The success attending its
formation was such as to induco
bim to considerably extend its scope
beyond his original conception, with
tlio result that it has now become
tho largest establishment of the
kind in England. Its object is to
develop fish life in the waters of the
United Kingdom to meet the dual
requirements of food and sport. In
order to carry this into effect upon
a sound, practical and extensive
basis, every facility has been provided for batching ova and rearing
fish in sufficient quantities to meet
existing demands. * * * Inall
his operations Mr. Burgess emulates
nature as closely as possible, not
only with a view of raising strong,
vigorous fish, but in order to rear
them with the lowest possible mortality. Two hatcheries exist, one
being for the incubation of Salmon-
iJx ova, and the other for those of
coarse fish, suoh as perch, roach,
carp, tench, etc. The Salmonidce
hatchery is large and roomy, and is
capable of bringing to life many millions of young fish. The mode of
hatching is that known as the 'overflow system,' tho incubating apparatus being supplied with spring water,
wliich is concentrated in a colossal
reservoir, whence it passes through
filters into the hatchery. The
hatching boxes are slightly elevated
one above another in order to provide for a slight fall of water, which
has tlio ellect of lerating it throughout. Tlie species and varieties of
fish hatched embrace not only all
British, Scottish and Irish Salmon-
idx, but transatlantic varieties as
well, the ova of the latter having
been courteously granted by Col.
Marshall McDonald, U.S. fish commissioner. The ova are laid down
in the winter months, and in the
spring the hatching house is crowded
with struggling masses of young
fish, Here they remain until nature deprives them of their self-contained store of food, when they are
turned adrift to seek their living in
nursery ponds, pending distribution
iu public waters. Although an
ample supply of natural food exists
in the ponds, the fish are fed artificially as well, thus supplementing
tho food store. In addition to Salmonidce culture, a very large amount
of space is devoted to the artificial
propagation of coarse fish, such as
perch, carp, tench, roach, etc." The
pisiculturists of the Old Country are
not doing things by halves, it will
be seen. Recognizing the value of a
principle, they are applying it most
thoroughly. In fish culture there
are great possibilities, certainties we
might say, for the conservation and
building up of our splendid fishing
industries. Already we have, unmistakably, experienced benefits
from the salmon hatchery on this
river, and it may be confidently anticipated that much more good is to
follow. When, in addition to our
native and lordly salmon, other varieties of fish are introduced, and
our numerous rivers, lakes, and sea
arms stocked to their full capacity,
what dimensions will the piscatorial
resources of the province not attain
nizing in fish-culture a power suffi-
on hi.

The Church ctreet oracle distinguished itself Saturday, by sneering
at William E. Gladstone, who it explains (for fear, presumably, that
this "narrow-minded community"
never heard of the greatest living
statesman and orator) "is an ambitious leader of the opposition who
will never be content to die until he
is again premier." Such overweening conceit, hidden under an assumption of superior wisdom, is
worthy of the late Jefferson Brick,
who boasted that the queen of England trembled on her throne in the
Tower of London whon she perused
his editorials. The annexationist
and lover of the stars and stripes
should certainly know something of
the grandest friend of liberty this
century has seen. Ambitious ! Why
he retired from public life, but in
spite of it no ministry without Gladstone at its head was possible in
1880. Let us tell the new print
that we have heard of cases where
poor mothers brought their little
children miles to show them the
faco of that great good Englishman.
By his influence the death trap
prisons of ]3omba were made impossible in Naples, and through his

Sot only does "heaven help those
who help themselves," but the tendency is for man to aid his fellow-—
if he is an energetic, enterprising,
confident, rustling fellow—while an
individual or a community of a contrary disposition and character wins
only contempt, and kicks instead bf
respect antl encouragement. A case
in point: The royal city has made
such a radical departure within the
last year or two from its old snail-
like methods and pace, and lias displayed such a thoroughly live and
energetic spirit in making preparations on a largo scale and with all
possible completeness for the approaching provincial exhibition to
be held within its limits, lhat our
neighbors will not be slow to acknowledge our commendable and
successful efforts and add their encouragement and assistance as well.
Tho News, of Vancouver, has the
following kind and well-conceived
remarks on tlio exhibition and Westminster's connection with it: "While
much of the success of the
forthcoming exhibition at New
Westminster will necessarily depend upon those who have the
management of it, it wil! be impossible for them to succeed fully unless
they are cordially and energetically
supported by the people of tho whole
of British Columbia. In such an
enterprise as this there should lie no
sectional feeling ; no lukewnrmi.ess
or failure to assist because the direct;
results of a thoroughly successful
exhibition may seem to be likely to
be of greater benefit to New Westminster than to other cities or districts in the province. We aro
awaro that in the past there have
been such feelings in existence, and
it is possible that they may in some
cases still survive. We trust, however, they will die out under tho
energy of those who have charge of
the forthcoming exhibition. As we
showed in these columns a few days
ago, neither labor nor money is
being grudged by the citizens of
New Westminster to furnish accommodation for an exhibition far superior to auy of its predecessors. The
people of Vanoouver, who have often
times iu tho past had themselves to
play a lone hand [what does our co-
temporary mean?], and will appreciate the efforts of their neighbors
in the royal city, and will not be
found wanting on their part in anything they can do to contribute to
the success of the meeting in October. It seems to us that the present will be the first exhibition of
the Association which will be really
provincial in respect to receiving
hearty support from every section of
the country. Let us all therefore,
while expecting that the people of
Now Westminster will thoroughly
sustain their name for hospitality
by the extensive scale on which
thoy will prepare for the gathering,
do our part, so that the general consensus of opinion by those who are
present in October will lie that it is
by far the best exhibition that has
been held iu British Columbia."
Tho political situation in Newfoundland is lively at any season,
says the Empire, but is likely to
take an additional interest this year
from the fact that a general election
is at hand and a greatly enlarged
electorate will pronounce upon questions of public policy. It doos not
seem at all improbable that union
with Canada, which is the natural
and suitable future for the colony,
will not be relegated so far into the
background as the failure of the inter-colonial negotiations last year
appeared to signify. The question
may not he a vital issue in the approaching contest, but that it will
assume some importance is evident
from tho utterances of the Newfoundland press. Tho younger men
who will, under the manhood suffrage law, be admitted to a share in
the govornment of the country may
not unreasonably be expected to
look to confederation with Canada
as the best future for tho island.
There is a confederation pnrty also,
and smull as it may bc, its members
will hardly remain quiescent during
the campaign. Sir William White-
way, tho former premior of Newfoundland, who was supposed to retire from politics a few years ago,
under some sort of political compact, has announced his intention of
returning to public lifo and contesting a seat in the Trinity Bay distriot. What his policy may bo is
yet undetermined, but his present
alliances are not hostile to the union.
The Harbor Grace Standard, a leading organ of public opinion upon tho
island, is quite outspoken in its advocacy of confederation, and has
the following interesting commonts
upon the issue t "It is rumored that
the constituencies from Burin to St.
Barbe, intend testing the question
of confederation next fall, by calling
out confederate candidates for their
respective districts to represent
them, and who will favor tho sending of the proposed delegation to
Ottawa to ascertain what terms
will be offered for our acceptance
Wo do not wonder at this; the busi
ness relations between the people of
the western districts of Newfoundland and the provinces of the Dominion are fast extending, and with
a decided advantago to our people,
who cau get supplies of every description on far more liberal terms
and of a better quality from the
nonunion than can be procured in
tliis country, and can also sell or
barter the produce of the fisheries
to more advantage in the same direction than they can in Newfoundland." Thus it is plain that union
is among the possibilites of the noar
future, and that a delegation to discuss terms may be the outcome of
the election. With respect to railway projects in Newfoundland and
the connection which they have with
the prospects of trade with Canada,
the line proposed liy the government
will extend the present lino 200
miles to the mining regions so ns to
develop the rich resources oE the
colony and improve the internal
ce/mmunication. The well-informed
Newfoundland correspondent of the
Montreal Gazette refers to the railway as a most promising enterprise,
extending over several years : "Our
fertile lands, now locked up and inaccessible, will be opened up, their
valuo increased and settlement promoted. Our timber and mineral
lands will be utilized. Large sums
will be distributed as wages among
the people. The new lino will tap the
great valleys of the Gambo, Gander
and Exploits, in which are vast
areas of good laud and splendid pine
forests. , There oould not be a more
promising or profitable expenditure
of the public funds for turning to
account the long-neglected natural
resources of tho island." The approval of the legislature secured, tlie
work will be begun by means of a
loan raised on the credit of the
island. Thus, progress throughout
the length and breadth of the wide
Dominion, from the Atlantic to the
Pacific, seems the order of the day.
The jealousy of city against city
is not, it would seem, confined to
the maritime provinces. The Toronto Globe having given a kindly rec-
eoiiiinetidat.ion to the people of Toronto to attend the Hamilton Oar-

jment from the Hamilton Times,
Inter-civic jealousy aud the rude

A bill has been introduced into
the Imperial parliament for the removal of the civil disabilities of
women. The bill of courso owes its
inception to the recent judgement
which voided tho election of Miss
Coben to the London county council
on the ground that women were not
eligible. There can be no doubt
that the bill is a proper and necessary measure. No great proportion
of women perhaps are either capable
or desiring of filling such public
positions, but there are some who
are eminently fit, and when these
are willing and aro sustained hy

Messrs. Burns and Tillett that although
tho directors adlioro to tlieir point nud

to negotialiuna looking to a compromise. Cardinal Manning said he was
authorized to say to strikers that if

tho leaders would formulate final proposals lliey wuuld bo presented through

London, Sept. 12.—It is learned
from St. Ptewburg that tho czar has
ordered an immediate increase of the
rolling stuck ou lhe railways in tho
southern portion of tho Russian empire, and nfnro especially on those
along the Aualro-Huhgariiin frontier.
Thia action is tho reslut of repeated
tirgings on the part of tho Russian
minister of war, who baa taken the
ground that in case nf war tlio facilities
f.ir the effective mobilization of tlio
army would be wholly inadequate.
Austria has within the last your added
greatly to tbo capacity of bor railroads
for the quick transportation of troops,
nnd if Germany baa not dono likewise
it ia only because ahe did uot neod to,
her railway system having years ago
been brought into n state of perfection
from a military point of viow. Thus
while the three emperors aru talking
peace to one another, and to tbo world,
these ministers nro apparently acting
un the principle ilint tho best way to'
presorvo peace ia tu bo prepared for
war. At le'iat this seems tn bo tlto
only explanation that can reconcile
the worda of the rulers with thu acta
which thoy permit on tho part of thoir
lepresentMives. Tbe cost of tho proposed improvements in the Russian
railway facilities i3 estimated at 2,000,-
000 roubles and the actual amount expended will probably be much greater,
unless the Russian government officials
and contractors havo recently changed
their methods.
New York, Sept. 12.—All sorts of

Boston, Sept. 12.—Tho somite committee on the relations between the
United States and Canada continued
its sessions to-day. John L. Batchelor,
representing tho Coal Trade Association, wns the first witness. He
thought that the removal of the duty
ou coal would be to increase the sale
of our soft con! to Canada. Withont
duty our coal would bo very cheap to
Canadians, conipnred wilh Canadian
conl He-did not think the removal
of the duty would tend to sustain our
diminishing iron industries, nor would
it make coal cheaper. The idea was
absurd. F. H. Odoirno, coal dealer,
said that the removal of the duty
would result in reciprocity, whioh
would dnilile the quantity of our
bituminous coal in Canada. T. J.
Jefferson Coobdge, representing the
Amoakong Manufacturing Company of
Manchester, N.H , snid lie was largely
interested in thu cotton manufacturing
industry. On questions of Canadians
coming here and returning instead of
being naturalized, the witness said
his companyemployed 7,000 operatives,
one-half of whom were Canadians. Of
these, four-fifths romainded here and
became American citizens. They
were frugal, teniperateandlaw-abiding
citizens. Mr. Cuolidge said ho believed in the schomo of a Zollverein. He
thought it would bo advantageous both
to Canada and the United States, especially to the former, us it was the
smaller country.

The New Boyal Columbian Hospital nl
Sainii'iioii. Short -Sketch of Bulla*
Ing nuil Hi Surroundings.
As tlio traveller from .New Westminster begins tlie U3cent of the gentle
declivity just north of Sapperton, ou
the Port Moody road, be will observe,
if he look carefully, the sables, roof-
west and chimney tops of what looks
like a large villa ornee, just overtopping tbe summits of the circumjacent
trees. Tbe scene, as ho draws nearer
snd turns off the main road, to his
right, to roach the house, will recall to
hia mind tlio lines of Felicia Heinans
anent the "stately homes of England;"
ior this looks exactly like tho summer
or suburban residence of some wealthy
oity inan. But tho mind of the stranger is soon disabused of this idoa, and,
if' lie is philanthropic, he will bo
pleased to learn that not for the purpose of providing a luxurious homo fur
a, fow sybarites, but for the far nobler
aim oi extending help to all, irrespective ot color, rank or creed, this beautiful edifice took shape. Itis, in fact,
the now huspital which is shortly to bo
opened, and will take the place of tbo
old Royal Columbian hospital, which
has done so much service, and bo much
to make Agnes street, in that vicinity,
"awfully homely." Perhaps a brief
sketch of tho construction of so notable an institution would be appropriate
at this time. The main building rests
npou a foundation of solid granite aud
rubble-stone, and the basement contains throe large rooms, comprising a
furnished room, furnace room and a
large room for general storage. The
furnished room' was intended as a
strong room for violent cases of insanity Towards the rear the building is
supported upon stone piers. The
main front faces tho town and looks
out upon the river, with side elevation
and » huge entrance facing tho road.
The main hall runs the full length of
lie'building and is 10 feot wido,
crossed at tho centre by a transverse
hall extending from front to roar of
the hospital. Off the main hall are
found the operating room at the northwest corner, bedroom, drug room,
lavatory and baths, dining room, with
dummy running to tioors above, pantry, and in rear of the house and well
out nf tho way, the kitchen, bed room
for servants, and the laundry, which is
fitted up on the most approved principles. There is also a lavatory and ull
conveniences, in this quarter of
the building. Immediately behind the lavatory is the morgue.
Near the main entrance are the office
on one side and the reception room on
the other, also the women's ward. Up
stairs on the second floor, which is approached by two staircases, one at
each end of the hall, terminating at a
landing across the centre of the hall,
from which a single staircase leads to
the third floor—on the Becond floor
are,, a Urge ward. 19 by 33 feet, and 3
smaller wards, 19 by 23 foet, also a
number of bod rooms and all the necessary sanitary fixtures. The third
floor will not be used for some time;
fcut when it is found necessary to enlarge the accommodations down stairs,
this floor can bo fitted up on tlie same
scale of comfort and convenience as
the others. Detached from the main
Ibuildiug and nt tlm north sido nf it is
found a little ^em uf utchiteoture in
the steward's lodge,which contains parlor, dining and drawing rooms, bed
looms, bath room, and is iitted with
all the best modem improvements and
accessories to the civilised idea of cotn-
Both buildings are finished in nativo
cedar throughout, with turned comer
Hocks and casings.
The main building is sheathed inside wilh lath, ship lap, and is plastered. Outside of frame is covored by
1x0 rustic. Tho floors aro deafened,
and every room in the liouse will be
warm and comfottable, even in the
depth of winter, while the perfect system of ventilation will make it a summer retreat of delicious coolnesB. Pi-
Tottcd transoms over the windows in
the main building can bo worked independently, and in all tho wards are
ventilating flues. Tho plumbing is
complete in every, respect, not only
the most improved appliances having
been used, but several ingenious devices for the expulsion of foul air, tlio
invention of Mr. Clou, tho architect,
havo been put in. Pip? lias been laid
all roady for gas. Tho house will bo
supplied throughout with hot and cold
water. The style of the building is of
the melange description, ono might call
it the Salmagundi, or the Pot Pourri,
or the tn' mJnrein style; itis, in fact,
one of those delightful architectural
concoctions for which the architect can
offer no excuse, and which everybody
says is perfectly beautiful, which is always a valuable acquisition to a city's
architecture, aud which, like a good
novel nr a good ragout, contains insin-
nations of everything that is pleasing
to the cultivated taste. Tho hospital
may be put down as the villa stylo,
ornament il. it his shingled roof, with
prut1.,, ,.., i here anil there, rough
oaati.i.vj t.i.ibeii'd, and sometimes oon-
tainiim either windows or ventilators
The o„ tailed clipped shingles look very
affective and pretty, something liko
fish scales, in their regularity. Dentil
cornices obtain all around the building.
At the outranco near thn road is a
broad piazza, 14 by 28 feot. The
main building is BO by 72 feet, and,
including the wings tit both ends,
measuring 15 feot each, makes the total length 100 feet. The grounds will

up in tho top of the building aro one
or two of thoso peculiar little windows

as eye winkers! from the ono which
faces the river and city, a view of indescribable beauty can be obtained, a
sort of edupd'oeil, as it were, of tbo
sonth wesiern part of the Westminstor
district. The only trouble is llie posh-

The Brunetto Saw Mills, situated at
the mouth of the Brunette river, from
which it takes its name, on tho bond
of the Fraser river, has for nearly 13
years been a familiar land mark in
this vicinity. This gigantic business
at ita incipience was of tho plainest
and most unpretentious kind, and
about the entire property of tho concern was a little direct-notion sawmill engine, which for some timo did
all the work. But the affairs of tlto
company prospered and at thu present
day are striding forward well in the
front rank in tho march of improvement going on around the city.
The largest engine at the mills has a
16x18 inch cylinder and an 8 foot
driving wheel, and this engine drives
only tho largo saws. Au engine with
a 12x14 inch cylinder drives all tho
other machines, and thoy are fitted
with all modern improvements, siedit-
feod oilers, etc.
The water used in the boilers is obtained on the hill behind Sapperton,
collected into a tank and thence by
pipea to the initio. This water is io-
markablo for the faot that it leaves no
sediment behind and never clogs up
the pipes and guages as the water of
the Fraser does.
The two great aaws were making
useful havoc of a huge log when Tim
Columrias man was introduced to
them; one of these saws is by Spalding
of San Franoisco and the otlier a Hoe
saw, SOi and 04 inches in diameter
respectively. Ono saw slices the log
up into any thickness of plank desired,
and the plunks are passed over to the
odger, which takes the rough edgo off
iu a trice, "and the edgings are thrown
awayl" innocently remarks tho visitor.
"Not much,'' retorts his guido, "all
that are fit go over to tho lathing machine." The lathing machine docs its
work in a wholesale kind of way that
is inspiring; an ordinary looking piece
of rough timber iB slipped in at one
end and comes out at the other three
straight laths, and so ou all day. Its
capacity with 4 men is 8,000 to 10,000
laths per day. All the sawdust, scraps,
edgings and refuse are thrown into
channels in the floor, along tho bottom
of which a Ewart link, endless chain,
furnished at short intervals with cleats,
iB moving noiselessly, carrying off this
waste material  to the burner.
One of the largest orders on hand at
present ia that from the different can-
neriea for 100,000 salmon boxes. This
requires a special kind of lumber aud
great exactitude in cutting. The
printing press for stamping tho brand
and name of tirni on tho ends of the
boxes is kept pretly busy id! day. Tho
boxes are shipped off as required, on
scows and 5,000 make a respectable
load for ono scow.
A lame planing machine, by Coldie
Ss MoOullock, of Gait, Out., and also
a double surfacing machine whicli
operates on both sides at once, by the
same firm, were next shown. Near
this is the flooring machino, by McGregor, Gourlay tt Co., of Gait, Ont.
On account of cannery work theso aro
all kept in active operation night and
day at present, Tlie shingle machine
has a capacity of 20,000 shingles por
day and they are put up in bundles
ready for the market, right on the
spot, by Ohinamen.
A regular force of 70 men is employed, although that number will be
materially increased very soon on account of improvements and enlargements,
In the drying house a ear load of
spruco for the Bell Organ and Piano
Company, of Guelph, is undergoing
the drying process. A car load of this
wood, British Columbia spruco, was
sent to this company somo time ago,
for uso in tho manufacture of their Instruments, nnd tbey were so woll
pleased with the timber tlmt they at
once ordered more, and speak very
highly in its praise
The burner, which stands just aeroas
the Brunette river from the mills, is
27 feet high and about 12 feet in diameter. It was built by tho Wm. Hamilton Iron Works, Peterborough, Ont.,
and sent out ready to put together;
and so well waa it constructed that not
the slightest difficulty was experienced
in putting the huge structure together.
Inside, the burner is lined with $800
worth of fire bricks from the bottom to
the top. The whole mass rests on an
elaborato foundation of solid stone, lot
well down into the ground; the
draught, supplied by means of iron
doors at tho base, is very strong, and
all danger of fire is thus effectually
prevented. The top iB guarded by a
wire guage orown, through which no
spark of any importance can escape.
Mr. Kennedy, manager of tho mills,
says that tbe burnor ia not nearly high
enough, although tbey will be able to
worry along with it for a whilo yet,
The docka along the Fraser aro vory
extensive, and a depth of 30 feet ia obtainable right alongside. All logs required aro takon into the Brunetto and
there fished out ns wantod.
Tho plans for tbo erection of premises fur this company on a scalcof
great magnitude are out, and thoy will
occupy some of tlm old ground now in
use. When finished, the new mills
alone will be nearly as large as the
Rtias-MoLaron Mills, The work upon
the now buildings will bo pushed forward with all rapidity and aro expeoted to be finished at an early date.

undertaking is a great ouo and calls
for the expenditure of much money
and for indefatigable labor in all
departments. It is a long step in advance for the Paoifio coast to thus
attempt the publication nf an illustrated

Alaska Salmon.
A Washington deoputeh saya:—In
accordance with tho act of congress
passed last session, Colonel Marshall
McDonald, fish commissioner, sont a
patty this summer to Alaska to mako
investigations on tlio sidmou rivers in
that territory, witli a viow to prescribing regulations for the protection of
the fisheries. Dr. Bond is in oharge of
tho investigation and his report is from
Karluk, Aug. 10th, and hns just beon
roceived by tho commissioner. Dr.
Bond saya tho Karluk iB, according to
statistics, the greatest salmon river in
Alaska. The falling off' in tho catch
this yoar was anticipated owing to over
liBhing and seining at tho mouth of tho
river, which makes tho ascent of fish
to their spawning grounds a niatter of
grent difficulty except on ono day of
the weok. Ono river is tull of young
salmon. Tho stream is broken by
rocks and rapids and lagoons, but tho
enemies of the salmon, aside from
tishen, aro found- in the salmon shark,
a species of eagle, comorants, gulls,
scalping dolly vardons and steel beads.
Tbero wero six canning companies located at Karluk and all tho fishing _ ia
done along a little piece of outside
beach adjacent to the rivor mouth, not
exceeding half a milo in length. In
the last two miles of the river course
tho haul of seius are the main dependence, somo of the larger ones being
15,000 feet long. The catch of Aug,
4, was 153,000, one firm only taking
150,000. Fishing goes one day and
night, except from Friday at midnight
to Saturday midnight, when the ascent
of tho salmon is unobstructed, The
report says the sentiment of tho fishermen is iu favor of obeying the law
against obstructions. A trap placed
in the river was taken out by them
just' before the arrival of the party,
and an old Hussian sapoa, formerly located near the rapids, was burned.
The numbor of fishermen employed at
Karluk are 400 whites, and several
hundred Chinese aro employed in the
cannories. Mr. Booth surveyed three
milcB, but further progress cannot be
made this year.

A recent death from hydrophobia
is supposed to have resulted from
allowing a dog to lick a razor-cut on
the. face.
A Frenoh physician reports cases
in which the usual incubation
period of measles—twelve or fourteen days—seems to have been considerably exceeded. In two cases
the disease appoared at least twenty
days after exposure, antl in the third
case in nineteen days.
An Ingenious Elhctbk* Lami>.—
A Belgian inventor, M. Pieper, has
devised a new and very simple incandescent lamp. A tliin pointed
rod of carbon, placed vertically,
rests upon two horizontal coppor
rods about a quarter of an inch apart,
and forms a bridge between them.
The current passes botween the copper rods through tho carbon, rendering^ incandescent. Springs movethe
copper rods slightly when the carbon is consumed, and prevent the
breaking of the circuit.
Foon from Iron.—In a now
treatise on manures, Mr. A. li. Griffiths states that the process of converting iron into Bessemer steeel results in the elimination of a basic
slag, oontuning from 14 to 20 per
cent of phosphoric aoid. Reduced
to an impalpable powder, this slag is
a valuable plant food; und ns manure the 350,000 tons of the slag obtained yearly' in England should
produce at least 4,000,000 tons of
hay, or sufficient for feeding 750-
000 head of cattle.
Turned in Nature's Machine-
Shop.—Two almost perfect spheres
about four inches iu diameter—ono
black and of vcgctalile origin, antl
the other white and it mineral product—were lately exhibited to the
Geneva Society of Physics and Natural History. Both wero remarkable as having been produced by a
mechanical movement. The black
bnll was one of two formed by the
slow rolling together of dust in a cavity of tho oak shaft of an old mill-
wheel ; and the whito ball was a
calcareous pebble found with many
others in a grotto traversed by a
torrent flowing into the Rhone.
Protective Paints.—The Dutch
State Railways have made a series
of experiments to dotermine exactly
tho relative resistance to weather
and sea water of various pigments.
Red-lead paints, boing mora adhesive to metal und more elastic, were
less affected by atmospheric changes
than those composed of the brown
oxides of iron. The protection afforded by any paint was found to be
increased by pickling tho plates in
hydrochloric acid before its application. Admixture with the oxide of
Borne electro-positive metal, such as
caustic lime or soda, prevented corrosion by sea water; but only magnesia proved long serviceable, as the
efficiency of the others was diminished when their alkaline properties
were neutralized by carbonic acid,
which they—unlike magnesium—
readily absorb, The magnesia not
only protected the iron from galvanic
action, but had no ofi'ect on the anti-
fouling qualities of the paint.
Stone-Cutting by Band-Saw,—
The "helicoidal wire cord"—first applied by M. Paulin Gray, of Marseilles—is coming into use as an effective plan for cutting stone in
many European quarries. An engine drives tt continuous wire cord
of about onc-sixtli of an inch in
diameter, composed cf three mild
steel wires twisted together, this
cord being guided by grooved pulleys, and stretched by u weighted
truck on an inclined plane. The
cord is placed upon the stone, and
the cutting sand is directed with
water along the course chosen.
Stones so hard ns hitherto to bo
worked only by moans of pick or
chisel are readily sawn, un hourly
cut of one inch in granite or four
inches in marble being regularly obtained in blocks liftoen or sixteen
feet long. A cord 150 yards long
will cut about seventy feet deep in
blocks fifteen feet long before being
worn out. Not only many blocks of
stono oan be sawed, but they may
be out out of tho solid rock by sinking n shaft to introduce the pulley-

after much debate clause 5 was expunged. Mr. T. J. Trapp who waa a

A discussion arose as to which paper

The Foot Ball Medals.
Mr. F, Crake has received the order
for manufacturing the medals to be
played for at the coming celebration. A
sample medal for the foot ball match
haa been completed and is now on
exhibition. It is of excellent work
mansliip, handsome in design and a
novelty in its way. The medal is in
tho shape of a Maltese cross, with an
exact model of the association foot
ball in the centre, lacing outwards.
The lacing, in gold wire, is very
prettily worked in, and gives a look of
finish and completeness to the whole.
The medal is of solid silver, with gilt
centropieco. As a work of the
jeweller's art it is a credit to Mr.
Crake's establishment.

The nows of the defeat of O'Connor
fell like a thunderclap in Toronto,
Ever since Hanlan won the cup, the
notoriety of Canada's queen city as the
Schooling place for oarsmen bocaino
world-wide. Local sports have beon
attempting to bring uut another man
who would excel Hanlan, Beach and
others. They found their man in
O'Connor. His easy victories over
Teemer, Gaudaur and other American
scullers greatly strengthened tlieir confidence, and when O'Connor started
for England tlieir expectations for a
complete victory were moat sanguine.
There was great excitement over the
result. Special editions of several
papers wore on tho streets by 10
o'clock. It ib estimated that the Toronto men droped  fully $30,000.     •
At the formal opening of the Toronto industrial exhibition on Tuesday
thore was a great orowd present. The
day was a fine one. Sir John Macdonald, in opening the exhibition, was
attended by a number of distinguished
personages. The premier's remarks
were characteristic of the man. He
was happy and was evidently feeling
well. The exhibits are fully up to
those of previous years. An improvement is noticeable in horses, implements and machinery. The grounds
are in splendid ordor and in every respeot admirably adapted to the holding
of such a show as is now in progress.
A large number of American exhibitors
nre to the fore this year with their
goods and wares. British Oolumbia's
exhibit attracts uo small amount of attention. The building wub crowded
all the day of the opening and yesterday as well. The gentleman in charge
of the exhibit, Mr. Coldwell, is besieged with enquiries about British
Columbia and the inducements held
out for farmers, mechanics and ar-
tizans to go west. The character of
tho exhibition is favorably spoken of
by tho press and all who have inspected it.

Weekly British Columbian
Weilnrsdiiy Morning. Dent. 18, 1889.
Clause five of the agreement between ihe Southern Bailway Company and the contractor, to which we
took a slight exception tlio other
(lay, has been amended by the addition of the words in brackets below :
"Until tho construction of the snid
bridge an efficient steam ferry suitable for transferring freight nnd
passengers [of tho road, as woll as
other passengers nnd freight,] across
the snid river shnli be provided,"
etc. Near the end of the clause the
following amendment, in brackets,
has been made : "Provided, however,
that the contractor may commence
in good faith the erection of said
bridge within six months from the
date of this agreement nnd continue
tlie same to,its completion, nnd then
[a suitable temporary ferry only
shnll lie provided liy the contractor]"
instead of tho continuation, "tlie
said ferry may not bo built." It is,
also, the distinct understanding and
intention, we are informed by the
president of lhe Southern Eailway,
that the stenm ferry, whether temporary or permanent, is to be, like the
bridge, a free traffic ns well as railway conveyance. There is certainly
nothing in the agreement as published to forbid this construction ; but
we know, as a matter of faqt, that
there is a doubt in the publio mind
as to whether tho ferry is to be a
free traffic as well as a railway ferry,
and on such an important point
there should be no lack of explicit-
ness, as well in the interests of the
railway as of the public.
The race problem in the United
States is to be partially and temporarily solved, it would appear, by
swarming a big hive of the negroes
from the overcrowded south to some
of the virgin states of the Northwest.
It is reported, with apparent reliability, says the Post-Intelligencer,
that a well-organized movement is
afoot to remove fifty thousand well
to-do negro farmers and farm hands
from North Carolina to the incoming
new western states, principally to
Montana and Washington. Rev. J.
W. Henderson, pastor of the Queen
chapel in Chicago, figures as the
head of the movement. He it was
who took a leading part in the great
movement of 1872, a hegira of negroes from Mississippi to Kansas.
The movement, Mr. Henderson says,
has been quietly worked for a long
time, and will be continued until
they have settled Montana and
Washington from end to end with
refugees from Southern violence and
brutality. He reports that tbe
movement is so well organized, and
on such a solid basis, that the whites
of the South will not realize how
the blacks have escaped until all
are gone who wish to go. He claims
that they have better underground
railroads now than there were in old
John Brown's time, and though
slavery is nominally extinct, there
is just as much need for secrecy now
as then. Mr. Henderson maintains
that there is no politics in this
movement, but that its inception
and progress aro solely due to sympathy for the negroe's sufferings nnd
a desire to ameliorate his condition
as a man and an American citizen.
This proposed negro colonization of
the North may, and doubtless will,
turn out to be a good thing for poor
Quashy, a,i he will not find the same
inbred prejudice and hatred against
his image as obtains in Dixie's land';
but how will even the benevolent
Northerners like it to have Montana
and Washington "settled from end
to end" with the unassimilutive refugees of the South 7
On another page we publish the
result of the chemical analysis made
by Frank T. Shutt, M.A., F.I.C.,
chemist of the Dominion experimental farm, at Ottawa, on a sample of 6sh offal forwarded for examination by Mr. 0. P. Green, fishery
guardian on the Fraser, in June
last Tho result of tlio examination
is very satisfactory, showing that a
hitherto not only waste, but deleterious, product of the salmon fisheries
is worth $34. 16 per ton in punnn
alone—constituting a fertilizer of
the very lirst value—to say nothing
of the large quantity of utilizable
oil whioh this same waste matter is
known to contain. Hitherto the
fish offal has been thrown into the
river, and more recently dropped
into crates under the canneries, to
prevent the decomposing fragments
from floating about; but the inspector of fisheries informs us that it
■will be necessary to make some
other disposal of tho fish refuse altogether, as putting such immense
quantities into the river as now
come from tho canneries must pollute the water, notwithstanding its
large volume, and render it undesirable and unhealthy for drinking and
using purposes (by the peoplo of the
delta lands) and also detrimental to
the fishing industry itsolf by deterring the salmon from entering the
river. The inspector, Mr. Thos.
Mowat, is also quite confident that
a new and valuable industry can be
established in the province, and
especially on the Fraser river, which
shall convort a wasto nnd noxious
product of the fisheries into good
marketable oil and first-class fertilizer. For from §15,000 to §20,000,
it is believed, such a manufactory
could be put into operation, and the
amount required could easily be
raised by tlio various canneries taking slinres in the enterprise. The
following few figures will give an
idea of the value of such an industry
as proposed: Mr. Mowat estimates
that, approximately, 15,000,000
pounds of salmon has been put up
this year on the Fraser, A
little over one-fourth, or about
4,000,000 pounds, of offal would
represent the (additional)
matter from the season's pack,
it is estimated, Mould yield
100,000 gallons of oil, worth
000, besides several hundred tons of
tish guano, ready for application to
lnnd or for shipment. The guano,
it is expected, would, at least, pay
the running expenses of the factory,
and thus the amount realized from
the oil ovory year would be clear
gain. It is altogether probablo that
by next season somo steps will have
been takon for utilizing the fish refuse in tho maimer outlined abovo.
During such an occasion as the
forthcoming exhibition and celebration, when there will bo thousands
of visitors to our city, the same
temptation, which unhappily has
been yielded to to a certain extent
in other cities of the province and
elsewhere, will bo, prosented to our
citizens—and particularly to our
business men and hotel keepers—
viz,, the temptation to double or
treble ordinary prices for everything,
to tako advantage of the necessities
of our guests, to metaphorically and
practically tell our visitors to "throw
up their hands"—it's their money
we're after, and we care nothing for
their company or their good looks.
Although, in such circumstances,
the hapless visitor can do nothing
but submit with the best possible
grace, his feelings toward the individual who has thus imposed upon
his necessities,— and these sentiments are generally extended toward the city where he has met
with such treatment—are not very
different from the lively aversion
that a man naturally entertains toward the gentleman who has sandbagged him and relieved him of his
purse. The royal oity has never
earned an unsavory reputation in
this respect, and we feel suro that
no cause will be given during exhibition week by any of our patriotic
citizens for such complaints by pur
guests as have been heard after
similar gatherings elsewhere. On
the contrary, it is to be hoped that
everyone will vie with his neighbor to
accord our visitors to the exhibition
and celebration, in October, the
very best treatment and entertainment within our power, and at the
most reasonable possible rates. Such
a course is the right one, and, moreover, will best pay individual business men, as well as the city at large,
in the long run. A hint will hardly
be necessary to our local athletic
and sporting organizations to exercise their customary courtesy and
magnanimity in contesting for prizes
with their visiting brethren. Unseemly disputes and after recriminations of unfair treatment by the
home sportsmen have sometimes
marred eelebration occasions in the
province and elsewhere. We have
every confidence that no cause whatever will be given for such complaints against our sportsmen, but
that the entire programme will be
carried out with the utmost fairness
and amicability, and that to the
best men will be cheerfully accorded
the prizes. For tbe further credit
and good name of the city, the civic
authorities should see to it that an
ample special police force is maintained during exhibition week, so
that the best of order may be preserved and all the statutes in the
public interest rigidly and impartially enforced.

vast empire—the greatest the world
has ever seen, or ovor will sec—
cemented by the bonds of relationship, mutual traditions and mutual
interests, Imperial federation appeals
strongly to the sentiment of patriotism, which is by no means the dead
force—and a good thing for tlie
world that it isn't—that some wonld
fain take for granted. Imperial,
federation even as a theory, it must
be admitted, is yet in its formative
stages, and the details bf its practical
application are, of course, not yet
formulated. The principal idea of
the scheme, however, is: Government of the several parts of the empire iu the interests of the whole ;
but only so far as Imperial and international interests are immediately
concerned. To this end it is designed that the various colonies
should have a voice in certain Imperial matters, such as the treaty
making power and in questions of
peace or war, through a council of
the empire, tho constitution of wliich
has not as yet been determined.
That the different colonies and tho
mother country should discriminate
in favor of eaoh other in the matter
of trade is also one of the planks of
the Imperial federationists; as well
as that the colonists, being identified with the highest affairs of the
empire, and having a voice in peace
and in war and in the making of
political and commercial treaties,
should contribute something towards
the support of the army and the
navy. At the same time, whilo
seeking to draw the colonies to each
other and to the mother country in
the bonds of mutual interest and
welfare, the federationists have to
guard carefully this point, "that no
scheme of federation should interfere with the existing rights of local
parliaments as regards local affairs."
It will readily be conceived that it
will take the bost brains in the empire, as well as considerable time
and no little patience to evolve Imperial federation as a completo, perfect and practicable scheme for the
consolidation and unification of tho
British empire; but the accomplishment of so grand an object will warrant and justify the most devoted
and earnest efforts on that behalf.
The indicatious point to the fact that
British Columbia will very soon ho
taking an active interest in studying
and furthering this great national
question. Victoria has possessed a
branch of the Imperial federation
league for somo time. Our twin
sister city of Vancouver hus lately
organized a flourishing nnd most
enthusiastic branch of the same
society. It now remains for the
royal city to establish a good lively
branch of the league hero, and tomorrow night, after tho lecture, will
be the fittest time to organize.
Imperial federation is a question
that we shall hear something about
this evening, from an able lecturer, Bev. D. V. Lucas, who has
made a special study of tho subject
and addressed audiences in many
and widely separated parts of the
empire, with a view to disseminating information and creating sentiment on a question of so muoh importance. Imperial federation is a
question which is agitating, not
Canadians only, but thoughtful and
leading minds in most of tho British
colonies and in the mother country
as woll. As Canadians, viewing
tho matter from the narrower standpoint of what our ultimate destiny
is to be, apart from a consideration
of the grander vision of building up
a unitod and globo-circling British
empiro, Imperial federation has an
intorest for us as an alternative pro-
One result of the late Seattle lire,
says a San Francisco paper, will be
tho adjudication of a warranty question of no little importance to merchants. A firm in Seattle purchased
an alleged nreproot saie which was
warranted to be fireproof. Unfortunately for all concerned, the "Salamander" and its contents were
burned during tlie conflagration
mentioned, and a suit of damages has
in consequence been brought against
the sellers. The decision in this case
vill be awaited with some interest.

The promises at present occupied
by the ship and bout building establishment of Messrs. McPhee Bros., on the
North Arm, are rapidly becoming too
small for the growing requirements of
their business. The locution of the
premises is admirably adapted for the
purpose, the deep waters of the North
Arm flowing past within ten feet of
the main door of their sheds. An
order from the government for five
boats, measuring 21 feet in length, 4
feet beam, centre board, and to sail
with lug sail and jib, is now boing executed. Ono of the boats has just been
finished and looks very smart, and has
the look of u good sailer. Two of theae
boats aro for the Dominion hatchery
department, the other threo for outside wurk on the gulf. They aro
built of cedar plank with a strong oak
frame, uud will bo able to stand a
great deal of rough usage. The firm
are at present negotiating for tho building of a steamer of 75 foot keel, for the
gulf and river trade. Thoy will soon
have on tho docks a 10 ton sloop for
halibut fishing off Capo Flattery ; she
will bo owned by Italians. About 15
pleasure boata are all ready to be put
together noxt spring for the summor
and fall hiring on the river; among
theso will be two shells, Spanish cedar,
sliding seats aud outriggers and all
latest improvements ; two or three 30
foot keel sailing boats fur parties
going shooting or fishing up or down
the rivor ; theso boats will bo fitted up
in a manner to make a sportsman's
mouth water, and they will be safe
and commodious, fust sailers and easy
to handle. The firm may put on a
few hoavy boats this winter for such
purposes as duck-hunting and other
winter sports. They expect to start
building a number of bcowb pretty
soon. A band saw by Goldie & Mc-
Cullooh of Gait, Ont., run by an engine
manufactured at the- works of Leonard
Ss Sons, London, Ont., does all tho
fine sawing required in the establishment ; but the circular saws will be
put into requisition in. a few days.
Messrs. Strickland &Co., are agents
for the machinery. Messrs. MoPhee
expect that next summer will be a
busy one both in the boat building and
boat hiring businoss, and the demand
made this summer ia a pretty suro index
of what may be expected next year.
McPhee Bros, intend to cater in a
thorough manner to the public requirements, by having on hand everything in the boating line from a racing
shell to a family barge.

with Ihe .lliuiuaciueut.
Learning thut Mr. J. G. Moylan,
inspector of penitentiaries, was about
to leave fcr the east yesterday afternoon, a representative of The Coldji-
iii-an jumped on the Pacitic express to
interview him on the Hy, as it were,
concerning the affairs of tho British
Columbia penitentiary, of which not
a little has been said since the release
of O'Connor and Johnston from that
institution laBt winter. These men issued a pamphlet which it will be remembered reflected very seriously on
the management of tho penitentiary,
and on wliich The Columbian commented, suggesting that a speoial
investigation should bo held, the remarks of Senator Mclnnea iu the senate on the same aubject being alao
quoted ou another occasion. After Mr.
Moylan'B arrival in Westminater two
weeks ago he addressed letters to The
Columbian, Senator Mclnnes nnd
others, asking them to lay before him
any specific charges or information
they might be in possession of,'and he
would be pleased to hoar them and
hold an investigation. He also caused
an advertisement to be published to
the Baine effect. Not being in possession of specific evidence ugainst the
management of the penitentiary, and
not feeling inclined to take up the
cauae alone, the management of The
Columbian replied to that effect, and
the matter dropped.
Mr. Moylan received our repreBen-
tative very cordially and seemed moat
willing to Bpeak on the subject introduced, namely, the charges that were
laid against the officers of the penitentiary by ex-convicta O'Connor and
Johnston. On being asked his opinion of the charges laid, Mr. Moylnn
said: "These chargea were laid by two
of the worst mon we hnvo over had in
the penitentiary. Even Bishop Sillitoe admitted they were among the
worst, men he had ever met. Why,
when I was here two years ago and investigated' the conduct of these men,
I ordered the wardon, who had refrained, from soft-heartedneas, tu uive
some of thero tho lush. When O'Connor found out ho was unable to curry
out his schemes while he attended tbe
Roman Catholic chapel, ho professed to
be converted and asked to bo placed
on tho church of England list. A lew
days nfterwurds four otlier Catholics
asked fur the same chaniio. This was
considered strnngo and suspicious, and
thoir requests wero refused, but they
were told Ihey might attond'the Protestant services held hy the regulur
prison chiipluii;, Rev. Mr. Jamieson.
This waa not what .thoy wanted and
they demurred, it was afterwurds
discovered that a cunning plot had
beon arranged, and which might have
'resulted successfully hut for the wisdom of tho warden in not allowing
their demands. The plan was this:
Tho ohurch of England services are
held in the warden's room, the windows of which ure not barred. Some
14 convicts attend theso services, und
it would nut huvo been a difficult mat-
tor fur them tu make n sudden bolt,
got out through the windows und possibly take possession of the armory bo-
low, thon overcome lho gunrdB nnd
disperse, taking their ch'incL's of pelting over ihe fence before all alarm wns
given, 'fhe matter ef allowing these
men to change to the church of England was referred to me, and by ino lo
the iiiini-ter of justice, who decided
not to allow the change. These men
were also very bitter against Fathor
Horris, and wfiyl Becaiiao he tried to
mako them better men and because he
roportod their misci ndtict and irregu-
lnritiea i'i ohanpl."
On boing asked what he thought of
tho suggestion of Senator Mclnnes
that un investigation of the charges
should be made, Mr. Moylan answered: "I could find uo grounds on
which to advise u special commission
to 8carch the question. Withuut
some definito grounds to work on, tho
government would not ta, to such a
stop. But in order lo satisfy myself
on the charges that have been laid,
and to discover if possible any foundation there might have been for thein,
1 held un investigation during my present, visit, which has satisfied me that
the charges laid against tho governing
officers were without foundation. J
caused every oflicer ef the penitentiary j
to appear before me and on oath ex- '
iiinined thein soportitely uu all the
points raised, endeavoring to ascertain from thein if tlie-.' were cognisant
of   any    irregularit es,   ill-treatment,
etc., practiced by tho warden or de»
puty warden towards the convicts.
My utmost endeavors failed to elicit
ono word derogatory to these gentlemen am1 iii sending iny report to the
minister of justice, and explained the
steps I had taken, I informed him if
anything wus wrong in connection with
the management of the penitentiary
tho ovil was well cloaked, and every
officer of the institution muat be in
league to keep it hidden."
The train was nearing the junction
by Hub time and our representative
had juat timo to ask another question.
"What iB tho tenor of your report
on the British Columbin penitentiary
this time?" Mr. Moylan replied: "My
report to the department this time ia
better than it evor was before, nnd I
go buck better pleased nnd more satisfied with the management of the institution than on any former occasion."
There was just time for a hand
shako'and Mr. Moylan changed cars
and a few minutes later was speeding
along towards Regina, where ho makes
his next stop.
Tho high position attained and tho
universal acceptance and approval of the
pleasant liquid fruit remedy Syrup of

Sudden Ileum.
The old adasre "In tho midst of
life we ure in deuth," was exemplified
yesterduy morning, in the Vuncouvor
House, Yates streot, iu the sudden
death of a boarder named Joseph
Patterson. At the particular time,
Patterson and three other men wore
eating breakfast, ubout 0:30 o'olook,
and tho repast wub inlersporsed with
jokes. In reply tu u joke tho decensed
laughingly said, "I can get away with
you both," and then partook of ti
mouthful nf fried egi;. A rattling
wub heard in his throat by the others,
one of whom snid, "You're dying new;
you can't do anything," The words
spoken in jest proved tuu true, fcr the
vital spark had fled and Patterson's
head hung limp. He was ut onco
taken out for frosh air nnd everything
dono in his behalf, but without avail.
Dr. Milno wus called in, but his services ut the juncture were useless,
Patterson being dead. The decensed
wub a nativo of tho north uf Ireland
and about 43 years oi age, und haa

Mr. Van Koughnet, the deputy of
tho superintendent cf Indian affairs,
haa just visited the nation's wards in
British Columbia. He says of the
western Indians that they are slightly
higher on the ladder of civilization
than curs in the east, and for two reasons. The first is thut they are entirely
self-dependent. "Our govornmont
grants them no annuities, nnd all the
money they obtain is the outcome of
their profitable labors. With ub this
is not the case. The granting of annuities, in accordance with old treaties,
has fostered a spirit of semi-depend-
enco and laziness among the eastern
tribes which is tho reverse of satisfactory. The second reason is that Indians in British Columbia, generally
speaking, mingle iu their daily pursuits more among whito men than they
do in the east.." Mr. Vun Koughnet
surely means by eastern Indiuns those
of the prairies—western Indians from
our point of view, but eastern from the
British Columbian standpoint. Our
Ontario Indians are neither dependent
or lnzy. If they are, it is strange that
they should have been given tho franchise.—Toronto Mail.

A Seattle papor Bays: Captains Bryant nnd Bulleue, steamboat inspectors,
of Puget Sound, will go to Alaska on
the next stenmer for the purpose of
inspecting 18 vessels that ply in the
waters of that territory. Capt. Bryant,
being asked when an investigation of
tho Anciin disaster would take place,
replied that it would be somo time
after the return of himself and Capt.
Bulleue from Alaska. The accident,
he said, from whut he could learn of it,
was one that might happen anyone.
The wharf at Luring is located on a
narrow passage which is not more than
a quarter of u mile wide. It is the
practice to swing steamers around by
means of a stern line so as to avoid
running into tho shore, and this was
oast off by mistake. The current and
the wind set in towards the Bhore on
the same side as the wharf, and this
aided by the fact that there was not
room onough for tho vessel to turn in,
landed hor on tho roof. There was a
pinnacle of stone at the bow and tho
stern, with nothing for the vessel to
rest on between. The tido rises and
falls 24 feet at Luring. The receding
tide left the vessel in such an awkward
position thut she broke in two in the
