where she is likely to go to pieces at
any moment and before tho hundred
odd men and childacu can be rescued
who still are reported on board.
The disaster occurrrd at midnight,
the steamer plunging into a precipitous cliff, affording scant foothold
even for goats. The passengers were
aroused from sleep only to meet death
in its cruellest form and at present
estimate, officially communicated,
between Bisty ond seventy lives were

Two men wero seen clinging with

to advance upward or to retreat and
regain the wreck. The tide is working upward to engulf them, as they
are below high water murk.
Many pathetic incidents are already
told of fatalities at tbo midnight hour

young lilt,'ir, which como Into Hie
world delicate and lacking in vigor.
I The tendency has been in much of
the west and northwest to breed nl-
'mosl entirely from young sows. Such
■ a tendency iu fundamentally and
radically wrong. 'There can be no
question (but animals are bolter
equipped wilh the essentials for
transmitting highest vigor whon in
I the meridian of full maturity.
A sow that Is growing while clio Is
carrying hor young, cannot    iu    ibe,-,
very nature of things nourish    theira
; unborn    progeny ns she would,     ii   si
jfull;/ mature, us sho has then   lo do
two things instead
inr.ture sow is nliou
something   in   development, or her!
jlitlei will lose similarly, or both re-j
suits will follow.   These may    not
li- very apparent in a single generation, hut they grow in time through
cumulative    inlluoiicc lo be serious,
This practice more than any   other,
pi-iilinbly,     bus    proved   n   fruitful
somvo of loss in swine.
This loss is more f-.-It in young litters It is not. meant thai Ibe loss
arises so much from went of exercise in the young progeny us from
want of exercise in the dam. Bill
il. does arise lo somo extent even
wilh young liitcrs. Thu disease
known ns thumps in young pigs, is
n 1 rouble which arises from want of
exercise in connection with too lib-
oral feeding. An excessively fatty
condition under the circumstances
leads to 0 weak condition of heart
When th.- dam does not gel sufficient exercise, her progeny will nut ho
strong. There may bo serious troll-
bio with both sow und dam, while
thoy aro coming iulo tho world. Tho
problem of exorcise for sows in wlu-
jtor is one of lln; most difficult lhat
lho   swine   grower   has to contend
'wilh in cold climates, Those in
mild nrens do nol, havo to contend
Willi it at all.    Wilh tho former,   it
I should be made a matter of careful
dis- .tlii'iighl.
'The loss from too close breeding is
n very common one, though -so
thai arising from breeding from Immature sires it may not bo immediately perceptible. Some grower, of
BWlno simply select u sire from ono
nf their own HIlors, regardless of
(he fail. Hull, he limy be of close kin
to every sow on the farm, ns Ihese
nre probably from 111,' same sire. Tho
thought, it may be, does not occur
lo llieni.
'Ihe process Is BOtnctltnoS repented
nnd llius the close breeding is in-
tonslfiod, In choosing such sired,
size is frequenlly lho leading factor

Victor n, Jan. "ill.—The 'Osslou of
ycsleiiliiy (l'i'iil,y) was a short one,
tho disouasion of the new timber hill
taking up uinsl of Ihe liniti outside  uf
routine business.
This bill, which concerns the use
mil manufacture, within British
Columbia, ol limber out 1111 lauds of
the Crown, anil is cited as "The Timber Manufacture Act, lllllll," is ol
considerable public Interest and cave
rise In no small amount ol diset ssimi.
Hon, It. I'. Green, in Introduoing
tho hill, pointed out the great amount
ul ootiluslon whioh existed under the
present Act, with respect to the Importation of logs. Though booms had
been seized by the Government, its
action bad not been upheld in the
courts, and there was no doubt that
the trick ol alleging that tbe logs were
out under hand-loggers' licenses had
been up to tbo present u successful
method ol evading tlie provision, ol
tbe Act as intended to apply, and bud
led to n wholesale exportation ol logs,
the very evil whioh the Act bud been
framed to prevent, The purpose of
tbe present measure before tbo Home
wns tu put a final check on this condition of affairs, and secure to British
Columbia that her timber product
should be manufactured within her
own border,.
J. II. Hawthornthwaite (Nanalmo)
remarked that, while be did not object
to Hie proposed measure as a whole,
be considered that, in its present
shape, it would work an unjustifiable
hardship lo the bona lide band logger,
and bo therefore gave notice that,
ben the bill got into committee, he
would move an amendment Ior thee
men to be permitted to carry on their
business without limitation.
Mr. Oliver (Delta) tailed to see
any good in tbe bill, it being a
Government measure. He accused
tlie Government, in loud tones, of be
ing actuated, iu bringing this measure
forward, by pononal spite against one
Enimerson, who had made charges
against tho Lauds & Works Department. A large amount ol balsam
timber—useless for any other purpose
—bail been cut in the Delta Ior lisb
piles, yet the settler, were not allowed
to export it, though it hud no value in
the province, lie bad asked last

Hon, R. MoBride rebuked the lest
speaker for habitual misrepresentation
ol facts. As regarded the export of
fish piles, no one was better uware

We hope the new city council will
take into consideration n revision
ol tbe electric light schedule, Now
that the whole city i- being put on
the meter Bvsteru ;'. if -' ident the
present schedule i- l io high and
make, ihe cost of lighl ng excessively heavy on the citizens, Probably the better way I medy the
difficulty will be by a -y.-ti.-m ol
discounts frum the monthly bills
in proportion to the light used, and
it might further be a good plan to
make these discounts contingent
on payment being made by say the
20th of the month, making that
discount day on the same principle a.- the gas companies, In
framing the discount schedule it
would be well to obtain the rates
current in other cities as some reductions have been made in
light rates generally during the
past two years.
In our last iBsue we referred to
the action of the Board of Trade at
a recent meeting in requeuing; the
merchants of tho city to discountenance the fake advertisine schemes

Continuing, Mr. MoBride said that

When it was announced Ihal, Dr,

we fully expeeietl that be would Inquire Into the cause of Ibe death uf
the iiil'nul  child of William Duuruii,
of Viel iii-iu, us the Investigation was
ordered on that account, lie, however, refused lu go buck nf Ibe i-uroii-

not directed to Investigate that case

In general.
Tbe Attorney General could have
ordered the coroner to open the case
and hear additional testimony, but
lecllned to do so
It will be seen from Ibis that Chamberlain's Colic, Cholera and Diarrhoea
Remedy stands condemned without
giving tlie nianfucturcrs ,i hearing.
First. Dr. Frazer testified before
the Coroner's Jury that when called
he found the child almost dead with all
the symptoms of opium poisoning.
Tbe testimony nf William Duncan
shows that the child had shewn symptoms of opium poisoning for eighteen
hours before any medicine was administered, Gould the medicine produce
this elt'eet before it was given?
Second. The Coroner stated to the
Jury that the bottle contained eight
grains of opium,
The lads are il contained but three
and one-hall' grains of Ihal drug.
Third. The Coroner also stated to
the Jury that fifteen drops of this remedy contained one-fourth of a grain of
Tbe I ruth is fifteen drops of Ibis
Remedy contain less than the twenty-
liii h part of a grain of opium.
Fourth. The Coroner stated to the
Jury that the maximum dose for an
infant would prove fatal.
He made ibis statement under the
Impression that Iii drops contained
one-fourth of a grain Instead uf the
twenty-fifth purl of a grain nf opium.
Fifth. The threedrops of the Remedy which William Duncan testified that
he gave the child would contain 1-125
part of a grain of opium.
This is nol an overdose for a child of
thai age and would not produce
ibe symptoms of opium poisoning
mentioned by Dr. Frazer.
Sixth. According to the testimony of
William Dawson it was twelve hours
after the medicine was given befere any
symptom was observed that oould be
attributed to this Remedy.
Insiune riit-eeasesiipiiiin when given in
substance has been slow to act, but ill
this remedy II is combined with alcohol, ether and capsicum, whioh actus
a spur und insure prompt action nf tho
opium, It is simply absurd to state
that it would have no elfect whatever
for twelve hours and then produce
Seventh. William Dunoan testified
that shortly before its death the ohlld
revived and eeemed as well, apparently,
as it ever had.
This alone is enough to convince
my unprejudiced physician that ihe
ihfld did nol die of opium poisoning,
i- hud ;i fatal dose of opium been taken
the child would not have "rallied"
before death,
These statements are based on the
evidence as published In the Victoria
Col,,nisi of December 18th.

In the Selkirk Mountains, B, C.
All wont well with Dtuitf-ebnian
and tbe Campaigner tin'i! Iliu return journey up lho 12,f) fuel nf rope
wns attempted. The guide led llio
way, and reaching mother earth
after a hard struggle, up the rope
by this time had become wet und
slimy, nnd, not being knotted, the
ascent was a perilous one. Nothing daunted, however, the Campaigner began to climb hand over
hand, and slowly and surely approached the top, now swinging in
midair, then touching small projections on the wall of the canyon
with his feet to propel himself upwards, the rope gradually stretching with his weight, until he was
within fifteen feet of tlie surface,
when suddenly his hands gave out
and he began to slip down. With
great presence of mind he gripped
the rope in his teeth, and thus
maintained an upright position.
At the same time he endeavored to
motion Deutschman, who saw his
danger, to pass him another rope,
He could not, however, hold on
longer, and, knowing exactly his
situation, let go his molar grip and,
still clasping the rope in his hands,
slid to tlie bottom, currying with
him splinters of rock and clouds of
dust, and sustaining many bruises
in the fall.
He was completely exhausted,
but managed to regain his feel, and
after moving about for a couple of
hours was able to reach terra tirnia
from a poinl at about one-half the
depth of the canyon, having during his sojourn discovered a passage
that led him lialf-wayttp the wall.
While the Campaigner was recovering his equilibrium in the
canyon, lie directed lhat the two
women should visit the practicable
caves with Deutschman, since there
were only eight hours lefl to devote
to the valley. To hear was to
obey under these conditions, since
nothing could l»e done for the
victitr, who sternly refused his
guide's company in the interests of
the fair sex. Deutschman at once
proceeded to light the small carbide
lantern, which went persistently
out unless violently and perpetually shaken. To counteract this
tendency he further equipped himself with the small red and green
lantern, also the candles and
several magnesium wires. Thus
armed, the twain followed their
guide docilely to the upper cave beneath the first natural or Gopher
bridge. It was not the fine open
grotto in the mountainside a well-
constituted cave should be, with a
clean sandy floor, over which one
could walk upright, such as Bermuda had prepared us for. On the
contrary, it was an ugly fissure in
a wall of rock, extending deep into
the earth, from which the ends nf a
ladder protruded; it was strong,
but Deutschman's legs are long, so
the rungs were far apart, and when
the two had squeezed themselves
backwards through the orifice on
to the first bar the next one seemed
to involve eternity. Fortunately
there were not many, the passage
being only about fifteen feet below
the surface, but it was narrow, we:
and winding, and lined, moreover,
with fine, pointed rock that threatened to impale us; further, it was
impossible to stand upright. Wo
soon came to another ladder, followed by another passage and third
ladder and third passage, then a
ledge, from which the water could
be seen disappearing underground.
This cave is yet undeveloped and
unexplored, and we were only
taken down it as a preliminary
training in ladders for the Auditorium, which contains nine ol
them, but the approach to which
after squeezing down the introductory ladder is much easier than
the first cave we entered, Here a
large vaulted chamber is revealed
by the light from the Mill Bridge
Fall, whose torrent of water sweeps
by with a dull roar, und disappears
again into the darkness beyond.
There is a curious pothole corridor
out of tbe Auditorium, the openings in which grow smaller and
smaller as one advanced. This
gallery terminates in what may be
called the Big Hole, where we did
not penetrate, It was visited, how
ever, and the following describes
the process: "Our guide started
us down, himself carrying a good
stout rope. The entrance seemed
prosy and tunic after the others
and iittlu to see, hut lying a rope
about his waist and giving the
HwisB guide stringent Instructions
to koop the rope taut, lie lay down
on his side and gracefully wiigglod
through a hole that looked about
large enough for a marmo!;the
explorer followed, and tumbled
gently into a pothole, another
gentle slide, a pay out of the rope,
another pothole, a sensation of contraction about the waist, then a
taller pothole and tiny river
running down the back, and nothing. Infinite blackness, touched
here and there by our feeble lanterns, showed a high rounded vault
and a stono cast went down, down,
and was lost in the far, faint roar
of the creek below. Tho hole is
said to bo 250 feet deep. Two
hundred and fifty feet does not
express the vastness, tho darkness,
tho little narrow ledge on which
we hung. They do not express llie
courage that it must havo taken
for Deiilsi'liniuu to venture to the
verge ol such an unknown abyss
for llie lirst time alone and unaided.
The upper oaves of Cheops are
the result of countless ages of
erosion, nnd are devoid of either
stalactite or stalagmite formation,
because ibey are entirely tree from
any drip of water; there are some
ncy perforations in the Auditorium
cave, together with a curious fluted
and fan-shaped canopy; the interior of Ibe large chamber is grey
marble, streaked with white, while
the passages and tunnels are of
fawn-colored rock, shading from
light to darkest brown.
The Department of the Interior,
according to the latest Information
received, has determined to refuse
all applications for private title In
the caves, and will reserve them
for public use. Under these
circumstances it is earnestly lo be
hoped that the Government will
reserve a siillicienl acreage about
them to create a park, that they
will further pay Deutsohman a
a good round sum for his discovery,
and give biui llie position of keeper
or ranger of the park at u reasonable salary. The appointment has
just been made of an assistant to
Mr. Douglas, superintendent of the
National Park, with charge of the
large Yohn Valley district, at u
salary of if 1,500 a year, and it
seems only fair to recompense
Deutschman for his discovery,
pluck and energy. He is a man of
line type, thoroughly conversant
with the locality, and therefore a
competent guide, to whose enterprise, ample justice should be done,
since he has neither money nor
influence to help him.

in tin' seas ami lands beyond lhat

Tha natural conditions which pro-
vailed woro anything but promising
for a boating expedition, butesl
th< jq were out of our power lo nlUr
wo had to tako thorn ns wo found

II lal ice of many hundreds of foil
in thickness,    which  hy overrunning i

the number of chromosomes is always reduced to one-half, in tho human being therefore to sixteen. Now
here comes in tho remarkable discovery which sheds n wholly new

therefore, do nut provide a completely organized tissue for tho human organs to feed upon,
There aro two things which I consider very valuable in promoting tlio
growth of the English race—one has
been the beer, and Hie other ha*
been tho old English dish of "fur-
menly," made of barley corn. I
ospocially want, lo emphasize tlio
fact that tho beer originally drunk
was much moro of the nature uf
tea   than is tho beer uf lo-
