Journal Ag't, E. A. Ohesley, Kamloops, B. 0,
One day at sohool I told tbo boys
'Twas wrong to chew tobacco ;
A six year-old, grown very bold,
Presumed to give bis veto.
Snys be, " I saw a fellow clmw
Lii-causn he bad the toothache;
'Taint very wrong for any ono
To chew that has Iho toothache."
Tlip school ucreeil with him; indeed.
His logic charmed the urchins.
Quite pnzzled, I could scarce reply
At first to his assertions.
A happy thought however brought
Relief froni Greely's namesake.
���'Horace," I said, "if a girl instead
Should ohance to have the toothache,
And want to chow, what should she
Like older ones bj time unschooled
He scratched hia head, and then he
"She'd orterhave tho tooth pnll'd."
Opening the Ball at Cork.
The Cork contest is becoming exciting. On Sgr-rjay Cinin O'Ma-
hony, while he was pelting mud at
O'Connor, varied the occasion at intervals by daring Rt-dmond and his
friends to venture to Black Rock,
aud tbey accepted the challenge,
Redmond and John O'Connor, M.P.,
with bands and a crowd of partisans wi-ut to Black Rook iu answer
to Canon O'Mahony's onallenge,
They marched boldly into tho parish.
Tbeanti Paruellites were waiting for
tbem with trailing coats and shil
lelahs, Tho meeting of the two
parties was iiUenrt-.-d by great excitement. The aiitLParnelii es showered sticks and stones nud mud on
tli..'-- .a(,p iru'nu. xue I'ariielliti-B,
who were armed with Btout black-
thorns, remaiue.l tirm and sternly
under thg vollsy of mil.1, and after
the Iirst attuok charged and routed
their opponents, Then the victors
heli} their meeting on the field while
thai' enemies skulkei away with
bruised und bloody hea-ls, The
meeting was very enthusiastic, anil
after it the Parncllites reti*ruod jahi
lant to Cork,
John O'Connor, M. P., who ie
canvassing in the interest of J. E.
Red mon, complains of being followed, while calling on voters, by
Canon O'Muliony and other priests,
who openly denounoed him as being
"one of Ivittie O'Shea's men," and
who told the people to hupt f-iin
from their hours.
Mr. Redmond, annoyed at certain
statements made by Mr. Healy, says
if the lutti-r continues to abuse him
he will publicly slup bis face in the
BlreolB of Cork, even if ho gets six
months for doing so.
John Dillon bus ultcrcd his tone
somewhat, as the Liberal party were
alarmed and surprised nt his lust
speech, jn which ho advised the
tenants not to accept auy concession
from the British Government, lie
addressed u demonstration of work-
inginen nt Duiidiiik Saturday, and
made a flattering appeal for their
support. He dilated upon tho
Biupi.)iiv .i',.j,-,u, t,o nnu.rel with
England after ull tho trouble and
time that his been occupied iu
securing her friendship, I.t was a
terrible thing to r/-ik Ireland, with
her steadily dwindling population, to
break with Gladstone at tho risk of
postponing homo rulo another do-
cade. If this spirit of faction is permitted to spread, before two years
were over they would have aa many
parties as there are Irish members
and bo as they wero fifteen years
ago, whon every man was for himself.
The McCarthyitos held a meeting
in Cork on Tuesday, at the close of
whioh a largo body of police esoor-
tcd Dillon and O'Biieu to their
hotel. Every now aud thcu a Pnr-
nellito in tho crowd would bowl and
swing u shillelub ur���mud his hoed
and mako a dash for thu McCarthy-
it-.fl. Tho police would then chargo
aud roBtore order for lho moment,
At length the Purnoliites grew uncontrollable and yolls of "murderers," "English Liokspits," and
other epithets saluted the McCarthy
ites. The latter then turned on
their assailants. Missiles of all
kinds flew through the air and tbe
orien of defiance became louder nnd
louder. The blood flowing from injured heads and l}inbs, the groans
from the wouuded, the fierce fury of
tho combatants and the ebb nnd
flow of tho tido of buttle as the advantage veered to either side, gave a
realistic pi.Uuro rcocmlaliug somewhat the euinmuuist rising in Paris.
The mounted constabulary were
hurriedly formed iu cider for a
charge. It was a dangerous duty,
for deadly missiles were flying on
every baud, and the order was given
to out right between the two parties,
where the pi lice would receive the
volleys from both. N.-t a constable
flinched. They formed as perfectly
ns on parade und sturted on tho gallop on tbe word of commanJ. The
order was f" slrike only with tho
fiats of their sabres and there is
no reason to belinve that, under the
great provocation, is was disobeyed.
As the constaplec spurred forward
the volleys of missiles grew thicker,
for each side was sure that if they
missed each other they would at
least hit a polioeiuau. The police
were peisisteut, however, aud at
length succeeded in breading up the
A Mournful Wedding Day.
There was to have been a marriage ut a house on Pembroke
Street, Victoria, one day thin
week, In the midst of Um plea-.
blint excitement incidental to such
au cvenl the groom w.-.b handed a
.ahl gram Irom Glasgow, the
conteuls of which transformed
the whole eeone from one of
gaiety iulo one of grief, It un��
uounced thut the father, mother,
brother and sister in-law of tho
prospective groom had been iu a
railway accident in Bcoiluod, lhe
three latter being killod instantly,
while thoro was littlo or do hope
of the father's recovery. The
poor follow, (Jen-dyed of all hi?
immediate relatives buvc one
brothor, who had forwarded tho
sad news, on reading lho cubic*
gram, fainted. On returning to
consciousness* ho kept repeating
lho hope that his father at least
had been spared. To etiso bis
anxiety on the point a cablegram
was sent io Glasgow inquiring as
to the fato of tho father, and soon
al'lcrwards cumo tho sad intelligence thai ho, loo, was dead, The
effect of this was to completely
prostriUp tbo poor fellow with

On several occasions lately wo lmvo

article from our columns beon givon
to the Sentinel, one being a long
article winch fills a column in tho
Winnipeg Commercial, nt the bottom
,of whioh tho word "Sentinel" conveys the idea that it was taken from
that paper, But the Sentinel never
published the article. It was the

We do not complain of that, as we

do protest ngainst anything worthy

Sentinel, or nny other pnper.
To Our Subscribers.
Wc would remind a majority of
our subscribers that their subscription
is considerably overdue. It would be
of the greatest help to us if their
accounts wore settled without delay,
so that wo may bo freed Irom an

We huve done our best, nml after

than heretofore, having added several
olaiins of o.;r health-giving nnd pie-

but it is only needful to giro one,
and that is���being a uew-oomer to
the distriot ami to the provinoe, he
cannot possibly have tie n quisite

anything innocurate will only be to
earu the sneers of those who are
better poDieil. We are ut all times
ready to insert nrtioles or letters
giving the opinions of local writers
on any subject which will promote a
healthy ditcussion, We trust our
hint will be noted upon, for wo have

As will be seen in our advertisement columns, the Department of

miles of telegraph lino between
Nunaimo and Comox, on Vancouver

of piles to the snagboat Samson on
the Fraser Biver, and the making

Three weeks ago we published a

shooting of a cariboo from the deck
of tho steamer Lytton as Bhe was
(���teaming up the Columbia. This
paragraph is going the rounds of tbe
press, aud we find it has reaohed so
far as Spokane Falls. Last week
we started on its rounds a contradiction of the cariboo Btory, stating
thut tho object aimed at was an unfortunate calf, which had its tail
shot off. It will ooarcoly overtake
the first, though.
Ou Saturday night Mr. Hamilton
of the "Senato" placed a pint of new
milk on a table iu his kitchen and
shortly afterwards was called to attend some business in the barroom.
On his return he was surprised to
find tbe milk jug quite empty.
Thinking it might have been "the
eat," be topk littlo notiee of the loss;
but just then bis attention was
drawn to the dirty murks uf a puir of
huge lips. Now, as tho oat does not
drii k with her lips, it destroyed the
theory as to that maligned felino
being tbe thief. It was evident that
tbo present thief was a inost"dirty"
one, for the uteu-il bore the marks
of the finger tips as well as thn contact of the sweet rosebud of a mouth.
Mr. Hamilton wishes to make it
known to the purloiuer that he can
have another pint of milk if ho will

(Grand "Hop" at Revelstoke
Last night the schoolhonse was en
fete on tbe occasion of a grand soiree
��nd gala-night, at which the elite of
the town and neighboihood waa well
represented. Invitations hail been
issued early in the week, as it was
intended by the promoters that the
affair should eclipse all tbat hud
gone In-fore. Their expectations
were exceeded; it was the creme de la
mine of the season. The ball opened
with a grand march, in whioh the
mnsioians (Messrs, Vjctor Vian and
E, J. Francis) made a good display,
Dn.icjpg commenced at 9 o'clock,
and was kept up with great spirit
until 3 a.m. Mr, E. E. ^verioo
made an excellent floor manager and
the committee did tbeir best to make
filings glide snoothly. It was a
great success, the clear frosty
weather lending a great deal to tbat
.effect. Tbe members of the com-
mittts were Messrs. F. B. Wells, 3.
O. Burber aud D. Cowan, who are
to be complimented on their effort.
Valuable Mjpa Claim.
Lonis Viok has retnrned to Kam-
lonps from his taioa fljaim np the
North Thompson, where he has
started a gang of ten men to work.
Mr. Vick brought down with bim a
fine blot'- of mica, 13 by 10 inches,
and 3 inches thick, whioh he claims
is a very small piece fo the sizes in
whioh it can be mined. There is
.also said to be an unlimited quantity,
which makes this one of thai most
valuable mines in British Columbia.
Mr. Yiok also reports work progressing favorably on McDonald's and
ether mineral claims..

Fishing on tlie Columbia
Twenty Yours Ago.
AVo extract the following from
an old newspnper, which shows
how an ingenious conl'lvanoo
scooped tho salmon out of our
river somo years ago:
"Barrels are very pi. ntiiul this
morning, captain. This is the
third we have met during tho last
twonly minutes. Where do thoy
come from'!"
It was Capt, Join II. Wolf, the
veteran master of tiiu Columbin
lliver steamer Wide Wost, which
uffords u much pleasaoler j iiinn-y
limn llio cars from ilotitievilio 10
the Dalles.
"Well, sir," said the captain in
reply, "lliey como from tho Cas
cades. II you should examine
any one of them you might bo
surprised. Sou wouliin'timagitic,
wuuld you. ibat ihose barrels,
though empty, cany a more
valu.blo cargo under than most
c.sks do in them? Ttiosc barrolo
arc buoys. They sustain each
about 2'jO lbs. Weight oi salmon,
alive, strung throught lho eyes,
on their way to llio canneries
down the river. There they have
little steam-launches which pick
lip every one aud tow them in,"
"How aro so many fish caught?
I haven't noticed any nets today."
"Nets aro of no account now,
Co and soo tho snail," said the
captain, as ho bent over and rang
the slowing boll for tlio D.illes.
Some timo after I saw the
f'Snuil," and a must ingenious,
successful, detestable engine of
destruction it was, Tlio owner
had admirably planted il just
above tho Upper Cascades, ou
lho north sido oi the rivor, the
soillli bank being impassable lu
tho fish. It was placed jusi
where the swifl edge of lho current mukes a most inviting eddy,
through which llio salmon most
naturally "run" on thoir cay up
stream, llcro tho current Was
iiboul eighl feci deep, The salmon novcr swim lower than four
feel below the suiface.   Kreoicl
tbey   that   few   survive,    Tho
wheel presents a busy scene, and
the profits nnisl to enormous;
for the simplo contrivarco co��ts
hut about $100, and roquires about
half-a-dozen attendants. There
arc four of those wheels on tho
river, and a gentleman engaged
in I lie (idling bueiiicss informed
me that tlio calculation was they
caught about one half the s.ilmon
���hat go up, There is a wheel on
Drtidgord's Island, above Bonneville, the work of which hit) become so noiorious (uol merely
killing merchantable fish, bnt in
so doing destroying a dozen
limes ns ninny of a size as yd too
am.ill for commerce) that the
publio press has demanded its
���'iippi'cs.'i.Hi. But all these
wheels, us I tie been paid, ore "iho
production of a bruin which aims
to live without work.' Probably
from 2,500 to 8,000 salmon (for
tlio proprietors of the wheels
arc very chr��ry about givin ���-
actual figures), large end small,
ire caught every hour, night and
day, of tho week, save from
Saturday to Sunday night. Compute lhc amount. I know ol ono
nomal calch of 0,100 salmon in a
Jay���largo fish, suitable for the
canneries. An experienced fisherman stated it as tho result of
his observation that about one in
ten of thoso caught wero used,
Even of the imn.bor used, packed
aud f-ent, down iu barrels, ono
wheel kept tlie largo cannery at
Warrendule busy all through tbe
season, and tlien tho Cannery

A working party on a southern
railway is made up of mountain-
eors and Georgians, Ono of tho
latter performed a foolhardy font
the other day that mado tho
blood of ibo unaccustomed spectators run cold. Thoy were at
work clearing away the thick
Underbrush in advance of tho em
giacor, when sonic ono shouted,
"Ware of the rattlo3nakeB I" Ho
saw ono of these reptiles about
four foot long and three or four
inches in diameter lying just
ahead. The Georgian cut a chert
stick with a forked end, and
oroaping up to tho snake ho dof't-
ly pinned it to the earth by push*
ing the forked end on oithor side
of his nock, Then, seizing the
tail in his right hand, he ran hio
lcft down tbo snako's body, and
grasping it firmly just back of the
head, ho held it up at arm's length
and called on thn others to "look
at tho voi'tniut's mouth," It was
anything but a ploaaant sight,
and most of tho spectators woro
horifiod. After holding it a fow
momonts for goneral inspection,
ho suddonly swung tbo snako
oyer his bond with his right hand,
letting go of tbo hold of tho left,
and dashed it with groat force
against a rock, killing it instantly.
It was a cool and dexterous font,
but very trying to tho lookorsson,
