FIGHT WITH fl.ATIIBAD INDIAN'S.
Helena, M.T.,.1 line I'D.—News has just
been received from Arlee, the principal
town on the Flathead reservation that
Sheriff Hoybourn and the posse of Missoula Co , who went to the reservation
to arrest three Indian murderers sre having a battle with the Indians, wbo refused
to give up tbe men wanted. Two Indians
are reported killed already. Audit
Koiian has called on an officer al Fort
Missoula for troops, but that oliieial is
waiting orders from Washington. Iu
the meantime a jiosse oi well-known
citizens from Missoula, headed by Mayor
Sloan, has been organized and is on its
way to aid the Sheriff and Civil officers
who arc determined not to give them up.
Serious trouble is feared.

constitute problems thei solution of which still [Ject in an adequate manner their
engages the minds of both individual writers support.   I am  "
and authorities.   A report of tin- Board of I
Health of Massachusetts closely adhering to
the results -f exact observations, leaves them 	
doubtful, and thc affirmative report1, oi some
modern writers do not bear scrutiny. Air
polluted by bad drainage 01 leaky sewers has
been considered responsible for diphtheria as
well as for typhoid fever and dysentery. Not
only the impairment of general health, but
direct and unmistakable diseases have
been attributed to ii. Thus Bayley refers in
the endemic of Bromley ihe first cases to un-
ventilatedsewers and cesspools. Thursficld
attributes the diphtheria at Etlesmerc lo the
accumulation of excrements under the
school-room and toadeficent supply of water,
which moreover was of bad quality. Tripe
accuses sewer gas, others polluted waters or
bad drainage.
liI have not been convinced, however, that
diphtheria can be considered a sewer gss disease, in the same way as typhoid fever. The
deterioration of tlie general health resulting
from the inhalations of ioul air is sufficient to
explain the outbreak of the individual attack
j ilnriug a prevailing epidemic.
"In  regard  to polluted water,   1 do not
think that pathologists who attribute infec-
i lions diseases to bacteria only, arc justified in
; condemning it. It may not be so guilty, af*
I ter all, for the admixture--, inorganic or organic,   minerals,  admixtures  of wood    and
plants, also lower fungi and their products
! would render water rather disagreeable, but
j not exactly unhealthy.    The latter effect can
be accomplished—always assuming the bac-

: the stomach, their  doom is sealed: they are
decomposed. Tlie only place*, where, possibly-they could lake root would be diseased
or ulcerated places in either the oul cavity ur
the upper portion of theu-sophagus.
"Not only water, but the milk ol  animals
also,   has  been accused of being lhc direct
cause   of   diphtheria.      Powers  concludes,
though a connection between diphtheria and
the consumption of milk has not '•ecu proven

SUICIDES   ANU   REVOLVERS.
The case of Buicide in Victoria which
was published in our yesterday's issue
causes us once moro to reitenvb tli i suggestion which we made in a previous
paper, thai our legislators Bhould at the
earliest opportunity introduce some measure having im-its aim the regulation of
the sale of revolvers, which sale no one
will venture to deny requires regulation
at least as much at the tali of poisons.
There bus been no difficulty in the latter
case, and'.there would be nunc in the
former if our Local Parliament would
take the matter up in earnest. It may
be argued, plausibly enough we admit.
that the possession oi a revolver in one's
houso is n far different matter from the
carrying of loaded fire-arms without g d
and sufficient reason, which hist ought
most certainly before now to have been
made a penal offence. Over a large section of the I'aeilie Coast it is nut necessary to ask a man—very often, nor a woman—whether be curries or possesses a
revolver, but what particular type of
ibis weapon happens to be his private
fancy. As we have before pointed out in
the Cockier, there are places and occasions to which revolvers are suitable, or
even necessary. In Texas, or even in
I reland they may be regarded as ordinary
articles of apparel. If,however, they are
scattered abroad among tbe people as
police reports are perpetually reminding
us that they are, mischief must follow,
as, in fact, it often does. We recognise the difficulties in tbe way oi regulating the sale of this weapon, for of course
no one has a right to object to a man's
sleeping with a pistol under his pillow,
except his wife J and yet we are inclined
to the opinion that, tbe law is in un un-
atisfnetory state whilst it. in eirect,
allows practically anyone, man, woman,
or child, to buy a weapon which may
kill half-a-dozen people in half-a-dozen
seconds, without a certificate of competence, without ever baying been trained
to shoot, and also because ibe revolver
may, andfrequentlyis,boughl by either n
drunkard or a blackguard.
Matters in South-Eastern Europe
seem to be fast approaching a crisis. It
would appear from a debute in tbe Honse
of Lords, (be bare report of which was
published in our issue ut yesterday, tha;
the annexation of the large island of
Crete is seriously contemplated by some
one of the great European Powers. These
Powers are jt-ni.m^-ly- watching each
other's movements in this corner of
Europe, and it i;- highly satisfactory to
find that Lord Salisbury i- himself
under no apprehension as in the rumor
being true. If such a step were contemplated by Russia we may take il for
granted thai England would have no
oj tion '-ut to make it a casus belli.
Russia will never be allowed to quietly
annex an island b '1 >n ring to an English
ally, an islnnd at once populous and fertile, which wotdd serve us a base of
operations fur future attacks upon Egypt,
and through Egypl upon India. The
rumor which seems to have caused such
consternation among the ''Lords" is far
more likely to have reference to Italy, us
tbe Austrian fleet is hardly iu such a
slate as won!,! warrant thai rower in
forcibly seizing an island of the size of
Crete. I'.esides, it must not be left out of
account lhat Turkey is l.y im means
without ships of war. Indeed we venture to think that the Sublime Porti—
effete and corrupt as il is—could rather
more than bold ils own in a single-
handed contest with Russia in the Black
Sea or the Mediterranean, provided England stopped the entrance uf tbe Czar's
Baltic men-of-war from passing Gibraltar.
We shall anxiously await more reliable
data upon which to form an opinion.
But of Ihis we are certain, thai events
are fast approachinga crisis. Europe cannot bear much longer tho fearful strain
of ber enormous armaments, The blood
tax—tbat of universal service for a term
of years—is absolutely suicidal sooner or
later, and we think if tilings go on much
longer in iheir presenl slate il will be
 ■ rather than later.
We publish a long letter in to-day's
issue, from the Officer of Health for Nanaimo— Dr, E. A. Praeger. As our readers will see lor themselves the letter is
most exhaustive in its treatment of the
possible causes which may give rise to
liphtherin, and may serve, wo hope, to
materially assist in thc resolutions to be
arrived at to-night at thc l'ublic Meeting
called by the Mayor, and of which due
notice was given in these columns. We
readily admit that Sanitary Measures
such ns the meeting referred to will be
culled upon in discuss, are somewhat
outside the range of tbe general Public
ken. We have always held that lor the
farmer to attempt to teach the lawyer
how to plead his cause, is not more absurd
than lor the patient lo instruct bis medical adviser how to act in rase of sickness.
And yet unless tbe Laity take an intelligent interest in Sanitary Measures appertaining to Iheir welfare, we shall despair
of seeing any permanent good affected.
What is anybody's liusiness, is nobody's
business, in-. Praeger in bis letter,points
out what be believes to be Ibe remedy
lor this stale ui things, lb—and we
heartily endorse his views upon the subject—suggests thut our local Representatives be asked lu urge upon ibe Government to bring in n comprehensive Hill,
the provisions of which would speedily
have the effect, if duly carried out. of
making our cities at least more healthy
than they are at. present, even if diphtheria—like the poor—still remained
with us.

MISCELI.ANEOUS NOTES.
Mb. IIexky Labocohere who was recently a guest at a grand banquet given
to Lord Diifferin at the Mansion House,
writes as follows:
Lord Dufferin, in ids long and elaborate harangue in response to tbe toast of
bis health, was singularly infelicitous.
He looked nervous and careworn to begin
with; and I am sorry to hear that, since
the dinner, he has been indisposed. His
speech was mainly devoted to a cut and
dried enumeration of tbe officials, civil
and military, who according to him, bad
done good service to tbeir country in
India during his "Vice-royalty. <>ne began, at last, to he reminded of the catalogue of the Bhips in Homer. However,
everybody was praised, from Sir Frederick Roberts down to a Mr. "Simplin"
or "Simplins." "Simplin" is Anglo
Bengalee for champagne, and some of the
guests seemed to hint that the noble
Marquis was praising Pry Monopole
instead of an estimable Indian civilian.
The disappointment felt by the company
was all the keener for the circumstance
that Lord Dofferin can. when be chooses,
be a most brilliant, epigrammatic, and
almost eloquent after-dinner speaker.
After be bad sat down, many mure j _ . ,
speeches even drearier si ill were deliv- p Q| ||£|[^Q
ered by noble and official persons. The j
reporter in tbe great case of Strayling i
versus Styles, quoted in law French by | rp*L i Tyj      i
I'ope, concludes with, "Je heard no more J. 11 111 liU-Cl y lNLAL
parceque je fell asleep sur mon banc." A
considerable section of the guests nt the
Mansion House, while tbey did not exactly fall asleep in tbeir chairs, cautiously
slid out of the Egyptian Hall and enjoyed
cigars and quiet chat and chad' in the
spacious vestibule, while thc prosy A, Ii, JOHNSTON & 00.
oratory was only audible like the plap-
ping of water from n distant cistern.

we think that il will be difficult  lo bent, j
and we hope in lhe interests  ol  religion
and common-sense  that  such  a clerical
phenomenon as Mr. Brown  is indeed a
eorit oris.
"Tbe  Church   was of God,   but the
theatre was  not  of God.   The theatre,
in its essence, came from tho devil.   The
very first trace they had in the history of
the European nations of tbo theatre was
at Athens,    five hundred  years  before
Christ, a stage was   erected   at Athens.
and the God of intoxicants  was  therein
worshipped.     Was   it   likely  that God
could bless anything which came from
such  a  source.   The   theatre   came  to
them as a gift of paganism   and idolatry.
tn the time of St. Augustine,  theatregoers   were   not  allowed to go lo  the
Lord's Table. It was no use of Ihem
talking of purging or cleansing the stage,
for it could not be done. He had never
been in u theatre, and sat and gazed on
the performance. By tho Grace of God
he bad never witnessed a single play. It |
might be said that he knew nothing
about the matter then, lie begged to
differ from such an opinion, but it was
not necessary to commit sin In order to
speak of sin."

Sir Thomas Gladstone usually attended tlio service at Westminster
Abbey ou Sunday afternoon when lie
was in town, and lie was invariably
mobbed when walking ap anil clown
tlio navo afterward by people who
mistook him for his younger brother,
whom ho greatly resembled, but Sir
Thomas was taller and moro stately in
appearance. Sir Thomas lived aud
died a Tory of the oltl Eldon type, and
his consistency and tlio plainness with
which Iio avowed his opinions made
him respected oven by his most bitter
political opponent;;. He went to Oxford in 1S33 and voted against his brother when that statesman was opposed
by Mr. Perceval, after ho had joined
Lord Aberdeen's administration, and
ho invariably inveighed against Mr.
Gladstone's policy whenever lie made
apolitical speech, but personally they
were on the most cordial terms.
They also differed in their eburcb
views, for Sir Thomas, who was it
most devout man, favored the evangelical sitle. Sir Thomas Gladstone's
placo in Kincardineshire, Casque
house, is a splendid mansion, and the
extensive demesne is well wooded and
very picturesque. The home farm is
one of the finest in Scotland. Sir
Thomas inherited ihe estates of Fasque
and Balboguo, which extend to 21,000
acres, from his father; and in 1856 he
purchased Strachuu and Glendyo from
Lord Smilhe.sk I'm- £70.000. This estate which extends to 2ii,00u acres of
low ground, hill pastures, and grouse
moors, is one of tlie best shootings in
Scotland, Sir Thomas was a most
rigorous game preserver for many
years, but latterly his tenants had no
cause to complain in this or nny other
respect, ancl ho was a most popular
laird, and look a tleep and intelligent
interest in all agricultural affairs.
Sir Thomas Gladstone was for some
years attache to Iho British embassy
in Paris, under Lord Stuart do Roth'
say, during tlio reign of Charles X,
and he had many good stories to relate about the curious customs of tho

■Inch's Visit lo ih,- Natural History Soolct;.
Ono wet evening, however, Willie
Ransom got Jack to go, just because
there was nothing else to do. There
was a short paper being road on "Fish
Scales," and a number of them wero
mounted for microscopical examina
tion, of course with n low power, say
inch ami half inch. Anything relnt
ing to lish or fishing was certain to
gain .lack'sattention, therefore a belter Bubject could net have been selected to engage his notice. Besides, Jack
had never yet even looked through a
microscope: ITo felt a bit ashamed of
tins now; but there were a couple of
microscopes present, nnd Jack deter
mined to have a good look through
tbem. The scales of different sorts of
British fishes were oil view. Of course,
lish scales are common enough: but
who would think that each kind has
its own pattern of scale, and that you
could tell a species of lish by' ils
scales?
The paper showed that tho scales of
fishes were composed of tho samo material, cbitine, as tho feathers of birds,
or llio hair and nails of animals—a
kind of substance only found in lhe
animal kingdom, ami never in tlie
vegetable; that these scales are dovol
nped in littlo pockets iu tie fish's skin,
which you can plainly sec for your
self when a herring is scaled. They
are arranged all over tho fish's body
like the tiles covering u roof, partly
overlapping each oilier, as is seen by
lino pari ot tho scale being often tlif

•Is not that_ Neilson?" I asked, indicating a miniature sketch almost
bidden by n fox skin and a Chinese fan.
"Yes," tho artist replied, softly,
"that is my greatest treasure. Let me

Tlie picture was drawn on a gentleman's linen cuff, Neilson, as Juliet,

idly toro tho petals. Pinned to ono

I hud no paper for drawing, and removing ono of my cuffs, 1 made tho

SOMETIME THOU'LT KNOW.
[Robert rorter'sOotheriburtj Letter.]
Tui'ouku the i-Ositt-nes-. of Capt. U. W.
Schro:*dur, our vice consul, I was mtroiucei
to S. A. JloJIuikl, proprietor and editor of
Tho (iotl'ouuur^ Commercial uud Khippiug
Journal, and MauriU Kubensou, associate
editor of tho snnie journal. Under the personal guiJanco of tlie-*o gentlemen I was enabled to learn many interesting facta relating to the several peculiar institutions of
Gothenburg. Mr. Hud 1 uud, who is well
known throughout the United States, is the
father of the Gothenburg licensing system,
whicli, from tbo beginning of this town, has
Eproad thruugbout Scandinavia, and at the
present moment is being studied by the social scion ti*»t ^ of many other countries.
In reply lo Mr, Hodlund's earnest request
to know what ho could do for me, I said:
■•Toll mo all about tho Gothenburg licensing
system, its origin, its objoct and the degree
of .-uc.-esi attending it.*'
"Well,'' said bo, "tho Swedes, as you
doubtless know, drink a good deal of brandy.
Witli the exception of Denmark, aul perhaps tbe Notberlauds.wo consume per capita
a greater quantity of spirits than uny other
country in the world. It is needles.! for me
to discus the craving for brandy and its
immoderate coiUUmpaOD In Sweden. Until
within a comparatively recent time overy
land-uwuer in Sweden po-so*.sod tho right to
distill Swedish brandy, a spirit made from
grain or potatoes, containing 50 par cent, of
alcohol. The country was ou tho vorge of
ruin from the doluge of spirits pouring
fortrh from myriads of smalt distilleries.
There was well-nigh a public house to overy
cottage."
A   NEW SYSTEM.
"Whnt wns tbo lirst stop to remedy this
condition of affairs?'1
"In 1855 new laws for rogtilating the distilling end sale of spirits cams Into force.
The object was to increase tho difficulty of
procuring intoxicating drinks. Hy this law
it wai loft to tbe communes to decide not
only in what manner aud within what
limits it should bo carried on, bat even
whether it might tak*) place at all within
their jurisdiction. Thi* paved the way for
the Gothenburg systsm, as it is termed.''
"How did that originator
"The laws of 1855 did not reach the core
of the question, especially in tho towns.
The rural districts were, undoubtedly, benefited. Drink threatened to sap tho lifo-
blood of the towii3. On holidays and Sundays troops of drunken people might have
Veen seen .'eeling about the streets of this
very town, while within the saloons the
most deplorable and scandalous sceues were
enacted. With a population of about 35.0U0
nearly :J,r/J0 persons woro annually arrested
and lined for drunkenness—10 per cont. of
tho population arrested. But theso figures
do not givo au ndequato idea of the evils
arising from immoderate brandy drinking.
Thoy must bo looked for in tho naturo and
extent of pauperism; in the deplorable physical, moral nnd economic condition into
which a greater part of tlio poorer population, not only of Gothenburg, but nil the
towns of Sweden had been plunged. Con-
■cious of tin; condition of affairs, and being
at tlie game timo a member of the municipal council of Gothonburg, I introduced a
resolution March 81, 1S04, proposing to ap*
! point a committee for investigating the
actual condition of pauperism in tho town.
A yonr later tho committee presentad with
it; report a plan of 'a now system for or-
ganlxiug the liquor trulllo in Gothenburg."'
THE   l'OOUKR CLASSES.
"At tho timo of your investigation and report, what was the condition of the working
| clave* nf Got hen burg P
"Wo ;ati;;l!od ourselvos that intemperance
is not cau od by  the cravings of a  coarse
sensuality   alone.    That   tho  treacherous
: quality   -if   brandy  to  warm, if but for a
time, the shivering and thinly clad frame,
I to otauago tho gnawings of hunger, to stimulate thu failing strength of tho over-worked
antl poverty-stricken,  are reasons both for
Its use and abuse too often over-looked by
temperance reformer-.    Squalid, unhealthy
dwollings. wretched clothing, poor and insufficient food—all these combined produce
, a stato of dejection niul debility, moral nnd
; physical, which porsons who have invosti-
' gated the subject consioor n leading causo
i of drunkenness among tho pnorer classes,
suffering as they do from want aud manifold privation."
"How did tho idea that the town should
undertake the tale of liquor first ocour to
■ thc committee}1'
; "Iu tho first place we had little faith iu
t tho various plan j proposed, which, as yon
know, vary from high liceuse aud Hmitiug
tho hour.* of sale to prohibition. One of tho
strongest arguments for keoping up public
houses, at   least  to a  certain amount,   was
■ that thero must be a sutlicient number oi
' places whero workingmeu can purchase
i footl.   This was likewise brought forward
■ as a weighty objoction to Sunday or holiday
j closing.    This   undoubtedly   suggested   tho
idea  of   turning   tho   saloons   into eating
, houses and   making tho -ale   of drink   inci-
j don tai.*'
|     "How was this dono?"
"By transferring tho saloon licenses to a
company, consisting of persons who engage
in tho undertaking, not for the sake of profit,
but solely for the good of the working
classes. Tho members of the company can
not lay claim to any profits, which, as soon
as all expenses of management, as well as (1
per cont. annual interest on the capital invested iu it by tho *■ bare holders,  have beeu
; paid, shall I*-* annually made   over  to  the
town treasury."
''What has been tho effect of the system?'
"It hns   reduced   tho  numbor   of   public
bouses from about sixty to twenty-five, and
| theso do facto eating-houses are healthy,
light aud roomy. Relatively speaking, the
annual arrests for drunkonnes* hnve decline.1 more than half. In 1875-Tti the sale
of spirits reached their greatest height, and
since has steadily declined. No one the least
intoxicntod can procure a spirituous drink
I iu Gothenburg—no youth under  18 years;
j nor is it sold on Sunday,  except tho usual
i drnm before dinner."
FOOD   ANU  DRINK-
i A visit to the company's eating houses not
only gives one   &  good   idea   of   what the
j Swedes drink, but what they oat also. These
j places are roomy stores,   neatly   furnished,
! with small wooden tables, at eaoh of which
are two chair?. The tariff for everything Is
regulated, oven to the preparation of the
toddy, for in the by laws I read, "The manager is bound to put two cubic inches of
spirituous liquor or wine in each glass," and
again, "Whenever sugar is required for
cognac, rum, arrack, or gin, the manager
shall claim one ore (about a quarter of a

Tho Story of Dives Explained.
[Harper's   Magazine, j
Dr. H , who tills a suburban pulpit out
west, b of ft practical turn of mind, and not
Infrequently impresses his congregation by
original expositions of tho Scripture?, In
one of a recent series of discuursos upon l/i;*-
arus the doctor said: "Now some fool of an
infidel will say: *How coulil Abraham hear
the rich man calling all the way from
Heaven to Hadesi' This, my friends, will
not be difficult to comprepend when it is remembered tbat we are talking by telephone
100 miles or more every day."
But again: "This was an actual occurrence. It was not a more parablo thnt the
Lord was relating, but a real happening.
He say-;: 'Thoro was n man,1 etc. Lazftt'US
was doubtless the roal name of lhc p >or
man, but the name of the rich man is not
given. He is called Dives. This was uot
his name, however. Dives is simply u Latin
word, meaning rich, or a rich man. Now
you may inquire why was his nanus not also
giveni And the most probable explanation
is that tho Lord withhold tho name of tho
deceased out of consideration for tho fool
ings of his surviving friend.V
Queen  Victoria DiBguited.
[London Truth.]
The queen, 1 bear, is sick to death of the
whole wedding business, everything cou-
uecte.l with the function having produced
remonstrances, squabbles, mlsuii'loiMtand-
iug8t aud overy species of botheration. The
whole of tho royal family—all thoso who
can afford to be independent, at least—havo
opposed the alliance from first t<o last, and
the uncompromising attitude which Las lieen
adopted at Berlin has causod profound
mortification and Irritation at tho court of
St. James. Prince Henry of Battenburg
has no money and no position, and for tho
daughter of the queon of England (o contract so undesirable a marriage i* a mesalliance which is regarded by tho courts of
Europe much as county socioty would look
upon the union of a lea-ding peer\i daughtel
with the son of a small farmer.

Russell Streel, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
.Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con*
gratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hmdostan, but all over
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, ami we shall be
jglatl to hear >>f Its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, arc now relegated t-> thi
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there * will be but
evanescent. Wo could multiply Instances
infinitum of lhe extraordinary efficacy of
Dr; Cotlis Itrowne's Chlorodyne in Diarrnce,
anil 2111I Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as, general Sedative, that have oeodrred
und-1 our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed it's controlling power. We
have never used Miy other form of thin
medicine than Collis Ihowne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also IVoin n Rense of duty we owe to the projj
fession ancl the public, as wc «re ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution "f any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF THF. CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We arc sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Exceltancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.— Vice-Cnancellor Sir \Y.
Fage Wood stated that Dr. J, Collis Browne
wns, undoubtedly, the inventor of Chlorodyne; that the story nf thc defendant, Fre*

the Boys' School, and on Friday the
Pupils of the High School, will be examined.
We know one gentleman who bus
bought two handsome books to give as

other for the Hoys'. Might we suggest
that others would do well to follow his
example. The cost to the giver would
not be of much moment but the sti nntl us
to the scholars nnd more particularly to
the recipients would be greater far than
that given by nnv amount of marks with

A Plucky Chinaman.
Yesterday a Chinaman who has taken
ti]) his quarters nt one of our leading
hotels, managed to get into a row with a
white mnn who fancied himself quite a
"slugger." The Chinaman went to the
bar "and called for a cocktail and the
white man asked him it he were going to
•.rent, to which the Celestial replied no.
This annoyed the white man, who proceeded to take oil' his coat, and the
Chinaman, seeing bow matters stood,
stripped on his blouse. The first round
resulted in the Chinaman receiving a
blow on the head and the white man
finding himself on the gronnd with the
Chinaman on top of him and using his
lists well. Time was called by another
while man pulling the Chinaman off.
The Celestial wns greatly excited over
his "victory," whilst the otlier fellow
seemed proportionately crest-fallen.

Mr. Mowat also visited Nanaimo River
to enquire into the manner in which the
Indians are conducting their fishing
operations and to endeavor to iind n
suitable mnn to liil the post of Inspector
of Fisheries for Nannimo District. Louis
Gooa, an Indian, wns mentioned us n
candidate for the olliee, but no one has
yet received the appointment.
Mr. Mowat said that thnt the rivers
and streams ou the Islnnd were small
and that the Hriiish Columbia Fisheries'
Regulations were formulated with nn
idea only of the gigantic fishing operations that are being curried on in the
Fraser, Nans and Bkeenn Rivers; but
they should be applied equally to the
rivers und si renins on this Island. One
of the most curious paragraphs In the
Fisheries Regulation Act is that "no salmon shall be taken by spearing," that
being one oi the original moves of capture adopted by the Aborigines.
If   Mr.  Mowat's  visit  will  have  the |
effect of putting :i slop to  the  unsports-
manlike method of killing lish with dyna- j
mite the couuntry will have something to !
be thankful for.

as he has never had the reputation (in
fact he never hns hud nny reputation but
a bad one) of being a very careful parent
nnd is more calculated to spread diphtheria owing to dirty habits and carelessness in mixing up with the public,   than

Had "An Anxious Parent" signed his

notice of bis letter, for his record is not
