Au Historic Failure.
Nows that the Wostcrn Union
Telegraph Company intends to
extend its lines Irom Seattle toward the British Columbian
boundary recalls the j-igiinlio hut
now almost forgotton enterprise
nnrlflrt.nl/on on thin ooust moro
than about a quarter a century
ugo, which hud for its object telegraphic communication between
tho new and old worlds,
I|i was. in 18G5, just alter Cyrus
W, Fiold's third unsuccessful attempt to lay a cubic across tbo
Atlantic, when eastern capitalists,
haviug grown discouraged with
tho repeated failures and believing it impossiblo to lay a sub-
marine cable for that distance,
formed a company for tho purpose of building a telegraph lino
uloug tho American coast to
Bebring Sen aud theuce aoi'oss
Asia io connect with existing
lines and thus supply the growing demand fur rapid transit of
news. Work was begun on the
American sad of tho liue -;l once,
and times were very lively along
tbo sound and on the British
Columbian coast tbat season, An
army of men woro omployed in
its construction, a fleet of steamers
woro engaged in transporting
materials, and hundreds of
thousands of dollars wero spent
ou the work. Tbe enterprise
was rapidly pushed, and notwithstanding the mauy ob-'Ucles ia
the way ol the project tho liue
was completed lo a point 800
miles above. -New Westminster before tho transatlantic cublo was
laid in 1866,
V/heq news of the euccossful
accomplishment of this enterprise
reached the coast construction of
the telegraph line was immediate��
ly slopped, tho army of workers
were mustered out oi service and
what material could bo recovered
was taken away. Much was
abandoned, howovor, and thousands of tons of wiio and othor
material remain to this day
scattered through tho woods of
British Columbia, mute witnesses
of tho failure of one of the most
colossal enterprises ever undertaken. Although tho lino was
operated lor a short time to its
northern torminus it was not
fouud profitable, and soon all of
that part north of tho boundary
was abandoned. Iu the meautimo
the Amorican ond had boon absorbed by tho Western Union,
which company in 1886 also
abundonod all linos north of
Seattle, and it is this territory
they now seok to possess. Had
the judgment of lhe original
company regarding the impracticability ol laying tho Atlantic cublo
provod sound, thoro is uo tolling
what changes would have been
wrought on tbis coast, nor how
much moro it might havo developed in the past 2b years. The
altonliou of the world would certainly have boon directed to tho
northwest at an oarlior day, its
wounderful resources and capabilities would havo boen known
sooner and its progress might
have beon much groater than has
been the cuso.���fjpokano Roviow,
Mr. CummiugB, of Nipissing,

of Lako Nipissing, two miles
west of Campboll's mill, A. A.

Raiu and Snowstorms in the
"West.
At Winnipeg the snow is, in
places, 12 feot (loop, and much
inconvenience has beeu cxpiri-
enoi'd in moving about. Trains
in all directions havo boon snowed
up for days, and tn.luo lias been
entirely suspended. Ono woman
has been frozen lo death and two
children fiosibitton,
The Winnipeg Kree Press says:
ll was the severest blizzard ex-
periooood in tbis country since
1882. Had tho temperaturo been
low, moving about outside would
huve heen impossible; ovon as it
was, those whose duties eompollod
tlic-m to stir abroad found it very
difficult to contend against tho
raging clemonts. Tho tram car
drivers had a hard day ol it, but
with tho aid ot sorapors tho linos
were kept open until about nine
o'clock in the evening, whon all
efforts tQ maintain tho sorvice
were abandoood. Ou the C.P.R,
all outgoing lreights were cancelled, only those that had left
tho terminals previous to the
storm boirjc allowed to move.
One conductor said it was the
worst storm he had over encoun.
tercd on tho line. The force of
tho storm was not folt so much in
Winnipeg itself as out on the
open prairie, where the wind had
a clear sweep. In the morning
great banks of snow, as unfamiliar
to Munitobans as peach orchards,
were piled up on all sides, blocking lhe sidewalks and roadways,
and reminding one of Ontario or
Quebec winter scenes. Many of
our citizens had the privilege ot
starting a bank with no ether
capital than a little muscle aud a
big shovel.
Tho Pacific Express waa delayed ten hours on Sunday by n
washout at Pear! River, and next
dny'B west bound train bad to
stop because u bridge was down
near Schrieber. Washouts in December on tho north shore of
Lako Superior are unusual.
At Pembina, N.D., a terrible
blizzard sot in on Thursday morning aud continued until Friday
night. Business was at a standstill, and no one could get in or
out of the city. Tbo sidewalks
aro blocked with snowbank^ 10
and 15 feet high.
AtEllendule, N.D., ono of tho
worst blizzards evor experienced
in thai section commenced about
oleven o'clock Wednesday night.
Snow driltod in the stroots many
feet in depth, and business was
entirely suspended for tbo whole
day. The live Btook out on tho
range are in a bad plight, and
great loos is feared.
At Vancouvor tho rainfall was
something unusual, oven for this
elimato. Accompanying tho rain
was a terrific wiud, which rendered tho carrying of umbrellas
uot ouly difficult, but dangorous.
Reports from Now Westmiuslor
and tho mouth of tho Fruser
llivor stalo that tbo gulf was iu
a turbulent condition, and no
small craft could venture out,
Tho tido at Victoria, Vaucouvor
and New Westminster on Monday
was tho highest for years, and
was tho causo of considerable
damago along tho water fronts.
At Morse's Mills the water flooded
tho ongino room and stoppod tho
machinery. At tho Gas Works
tho water covored lho wharf aod
slacked a quantity of limo which
was standing thero in barrels.
The barrels were sot ou fire, and
tho fire brigado was called out to
prevent serious damage At seme
other wharvos lumber and olhor
material was shifted, and several
hoathousca wero damaged.
Cranks at Work in New
York,
Last Friday a crank cnterod
the office of Russell Sage, at 71
Broadway, New York, and demanded to seo .Mr. Sage. lie was
so persistent that the finuticier at
I .st came to the outor office, when
tho man domanded 81,000.000, Of
course Mr. Sage smiled at tbis and
turned to go, when tbe crank
threw a bomb ut him, It missed
tho financier's head and explodod
agaiii.it llu, Willi with terrible
olfect, wrecking lho whole suite
of offices, killing tbo crank, one
of lho clerks, a young lady typo,
writer aud two gentlemen who
had called on business. Beyond
a severe shock Mr. Sago escaped
unhurt, but tho safe was blown
opou, cheques and securities were
scattered, and several person in
and outside the offices injured,
one young man being blown out
through the window and killed,
The head of tho assassin, which
was sovered from the body by
the explosion, is being exhibited
under a glass shade for the purpose of identification, but no one
has yet beeu able to recognise it,
although it is stated to be the
head of a Pule.
On Sunday another crank was
arrestod for threatening to blow
up Conrad Harris, a retired wino
merchant ol New York. His
name is Oscar Weyrauch, 50
yoais of ago, a bookbinder. In a
threatening letter sent by him to
Mr. Harris on Saturday he demanded $500 within two days.
In tho event of ils refusal he
wtoto; " If you do-i'i take notice
of this, my request, you will be
tbo next to Russell Sage, and I
will blow your brains in the air
without burling anybody else."
Toughs at the Coast.
A stranger, who arrived at New
Westminsior from the east a few
days ago, went out Beeiog the
sights in SawduBtvillo, last night,
Wine, women and song furnished
amusement for a brief period,
when he found himself a 8100 bill
short. He then raised a great
outcry and was thrown oat. He
went and informed the police, who,
shortly after, arrested an Indian
woman who was trying to get
change in various stores for a 8100
bill. She said tho money was
left her by her dead husband,
It did not go, however, The
police secured the money, and the
owner was so glad tbat be wonld
uot prosecute.
A lot of tough characters have
arriyod in town duriog the past
fow days by way of the south.
Tbey have not done anything bad
as yet. It is possible they may
pay   Vancouvor  a visit.���New

Separate Schools lu .Manitoba
Great interest is again added
to tho school question by the
action of the Church of England
on Saturday, when Bishop Msch-
ray applied for a writ summoning
the city of Winnipeg to show
causo why the city by-law levy-*
ing taxes is not illegal, because it
is leviod on the Church of England and on all churches alike;
and that is illegal to tax the
members of tbe Church oi Etig-.
laud for tho support ol schools
which are not under tho control
of tho Church of England, and
in which religious exercises are
not taught. This means that tbo
Church of England demands the
samo right as the Catholics for
the support of separate schqols, qt

SATURDAY. DEO. 12, 1891,
ilovelstoke  Lund   Question.
Last week wo published the firs) of
n series of articles on the unsatisfactory condition under which the titles
to laud iu Revelstoke townsite are
held.    We are going  to oontinue
theso artioles until a little more lighl
is thrown on the why and wherofon
of this thing,   We asko.1 Mr. 3. M,
Kellie if he wus willing to tako lho
matter up ou behalf of his constituents, and we trust that "goutleman
bus commenced to make n move in
that direotion.   What wo wanl is n
plain statement from the Provincial
government ns to the oonrse we uiusl
follow lo get our titles placed on
record in the Provincial Record Office
nl Victoria,   The titles ore all right,
Tho communication   from   Ottawa
whioh we published last week dissipates nil doubts on that point.   To
show that it has nothing to do with
nny alleged irregularity ou Iho part
of Fan-oil we need only stale that
thoso who bought dircot from tho
Dominion Gouernment ageut, at the
sale of lots in Revelstoi.o townsito on
the 27th Novembor, 18110, fare no
bettor Lhau thoso who bought from
Farwell,   Is thero, then, any rhymo
or reason in tho present action of the
authorities at Victoria ?   Wo nsk the
member for West Koolenay���and it
would be invidious to ignore thai
gentleman by applying   to anyone
else���to endeavor to extract from the
party or parties rosponsiblo for this
deadlock tho real and truthful reason
why property owners at Revelstoto
aro denied the right of registration.
Will Mr, Kellie do ihis'!1   If we have
left midline thoso things v.hich we
ought to have dono, or done thoco
things whioh wo ought not to have
done, it is right that wo should know
it.   Otherwise we might still go ou
sinniuq.
Our Water Supply,
and the main at, first laid will be of
such capacity that thero will bo no
necessity for replacing it by a larger
one should tho population of tho
town quadruple itself. The question
then is���whether tho S1C0 per month
shall bo paid in perpetuity, or
whether the town shall purchase the
water works by yearly payments over
and above that sum. Wo believe (he
coil has beeu estimated to ho about
9 ',000. Then a payment of gl.000 a
year to tho company would make tbe
lown owner of lhe system in nine
years. If this amount could lie obtained from now subscribers���and
twenty sueii ut an average of Sl per
month would total nearly $1,000���
there would not be many malcontents
among the original subscribers, as
nine yours is no very long period.
Bul will tho company agree to this?
Ou tho other hand, if the jjlOO por
month in to bo paid in perpetuity,
the incoming residents (who should
bo compelled to tako tho water)
would roliovo tho originnl subscribers to such an extent thut very
few, if any, would grumble ut the
impost���it wouid have grown so
light,

Taking this distunce as beiug half
a mile, it would givo a space ot

Should a tiro occur at u point midway between two hydrants it would

An alarm of fire oecured yesterday afternoon, just at .dusk, in the
Staii block on Main street. In a
very Bhort time a largo crowd had
collected, but fortunately a tew pails
of water in the hands of Mr. How-
son, the ownor, who was soon on Ihe
roof, did all that was required. The
alarm was caused by a few tpurks
mounting skyward from one of the
tile pipe chimneys.

The Toboggan Slide.
The new toboggan slide is now
ready for business, having been
erected in six days, and is said to be
a first-class one in every respect.
The contractor, Mr. Howson, had 15
days allowed him under the coctraet,
but he has not taken quite half that
time, and is to bo congratulated on
being the maker of the only (we
believe) toboggan slide on the Paei-
slope wost of Donald, The slide is
215 foot iu leugth, i feet in width
Irom edge to edge, and about six
inobes in depth. The height fioin
the top of the blide to the level is
about 100 feot, and there is also
about 200 feet of runaway on the
jevel at tho foot ef the slido. The
platform at the starting place, which
is about a dozou feet above the roadway leading to the station, is 12 ft.
by lift, and is provided with 6eais
all rouud. Steps will be cut in the
bank to give aocess from the road,
and rails should bo placed along the
abrupt edge facing both tho road-
Way and the slide. Gentlemen well
versed in the matter say the new
slide is iu ovorj u-spect a good and
substantial one, aud will compare
favorably with auy they have yet
seen. We do not know very much
about toboggan slides, and probubly
tho structure is safo enough; but we
must ask the committee to see that
it is strongly tested beforo Ihe public
aro permitted to use it. Otherwise,
should noeidout occur, they will have
\o bear tho blamo for their carelessness

M.urder at Whatcom.
A  horrible murdor was committed at Whatcom last Wednesday  evening, about 8 o'clock.
Tbo victims wore Norman llumos
and Mis. D. II. Long. Tbo family
had   been quarrelling  for   some
weeks.   Humes married  Long's
daughter six weeks ago against
tho wishes of Long, and  by the
connivance of Mrs. Long, whom
Lon-; suspected of criminal intimacy   with   Humes.   Aftor the
marriage   Lung  was  desperate,
and Humes and wifo aud Mrs.
Long moved to a houso on Forest
street.   Tho family was sitting at
supper on Wednesday night whon
Long entered,   He drew a revolver, whon the  girl  caught his
arm.      Ho   throw   her   off, and
shot Humes through tho top of
tho bed, tho bullet coming  oul
of his neck.   Mrs Long sprung to
hor foot, and roceivod u  bullet
through  the heart.  Long then
wont out and fled towards Fair,
haven.    Eoth   tho   wife    and
Humes   wero   killed   instantly,
The girl who married Humes is
only 16 years of ago, and looks
to  be much younger.   Long has
not yet been apprehended.   He
has been acting like a crazy man
for somo weeks, and was positive
that his wifo and Humes wero
criminally   intimate,   and    that
llumos married the girl only to
conceal tho amour.  Humos was
only about 20 years of ago, while

.John  I.. Punished,  by Jack
Aslilon,
An old  admiral, whoao   long
sea scrvico hud given his legs a
decided oulward curvature, oiico
had a singular adveuturo on this
account with a Bhip's pet.   The
crew of the ship owned a largo
black   spaniel,  und   took   groat
pains iu teaching him to jump.
A man,, standing up, would put
ono foot against bis other knee,
thus making a hole fur .Nop, the
dog, to mako hia  leap  through,
lho dog always jumped through
tbo apcrturo readily, though  if
bis trainer's legs happened lo bo
short,   it  was   a   rather  tight
squeeze.    Ono day tho   admiral
came aboard from the flag-ship
on a visit of iuspoction.   Happening to walk to tbo forward part
ot tho ship, he stood there for a
fow minutes conversing with tbo
officer who   had attended him.
Hero bo was spied by the dog.
Kep stood a moraeut surveying
tho admiral's  bow legs.    Suddenly the dog mado a rush ut tho
legs and a mad loap through the
tempting gap.   Iu astouiehmeut
at the black toipedo that had
pursed beneath hnn( thu admiral
whirled quickly about Lo see whut
was tho causo.     lho  dog took
this notion as u   signal   tor   an
"encore" and jumped again. Oucu
more   lho   uuntiial   turned, and
agaio the dog juuipod.   The bewildered feeo oi tho admiral and
the serious intention of Neb to
what ho imagiucd wus hia business wore too much for lho gravity
of thu bystanders, aud, forgetting
lbe respect duo to rank, thoy all
roared with laughter,   A sailor,
howevor, had tho presence of mind
