Ends: In a Fizzle.
(Spiriai in iii-- Courier.)
Victoria, March 23. — The wrestling
inii-li between Cameron (champion of
the wisl const) and Michaud, Ihe "strong
man," nf "C" Battery, came ol! in Philharmonic Hall to-night. Ck-iii Austin,
o:' Vancouver, acted as referee, llean-
nounced the match to be catcb-as-catch-
enn rules to govern. The men faced each
other nt 0:18, and the first fall was quickly won by Cameron in one minute and
thirty seconds.
Mii'luiud objected lo the decision of tbe
referee, but the fall wns allowed. The
second fall, after considerable finessing
and skirmishing, was decided in favor of
Cameron, At this a great uproar began
in (he hall, the crowd claiming no fall,
and yelling themselves hoarse. After
awhile Smith (Cameron's trainer) manned to mnke himself beard, nnd announced Cameron willing to call the second fall off and wrestle it over again.
Michaud, however, refused to continue
the contest.
lie is plainly no wrestler, and although
an able man at lifting dead weight, can

Cameron. The crowd was very much
dissatisfied at the result, ns it had expected a good exhibition of wrestling.
Cameron and Smith pave n fine exhibition of wrestling. The first, bout, catch-

Cable   Address:
INDEPENDENT NEWSPAPERS.
Thtre is an old saying to the effect that
there is no true independence. No man
be he rich or- poor, bond or free, can suc-
eessfullv pass through this world, without
a certain amount of dependence upon
•ther*. And it it true. The raan who
can command millioni. Is in a sense, as
much dependent upon his fellow-beings
as the beggar uho ia clothed in rags. It
has also been said, that there is no such
thing ai an independent nswspaper. An
independent newspaper say those who
pretend to know all about tbe matter,
mint lean one way or the other on all
public questions. It- must in Borne way
show its partisan proclivities, if it should
happen to have any, and they reason that
everynewspaperhaspolitical predellctions
which cannot be smothered. But these
people who argue in this way cannot lose
sight of their own personal prejudices and
political predelictions and they consequently view everything from their own
personal standpoint. But we claim their
can be a perfectly independent standpoint
from which a newspaper can view the different phases of political, economic and
Other subjects, and that they can censure
or praise as it seems to be best in tlie Interests ofthe public. It does seem to us.
that there should be more independence
anyway among tlie newspapers of British
Celumbia.
It is a matter of regret that there is so
little true independence seen in the journals of this province. They are, as a rule,
»bly conducted, and in general appearance, matter anil make-up, and in the
quantity of news they cempare more than
favorably with those published in the
east, but their usefulness is often impaired by the bitter partisan feeling
which too often glitters in all its savage-
nest through their columns. At any rate
we feel Bafe in saying that they could verv
much increase their usefulness to the
country were they less fer the party and
more far the state.
Ib thit connection it might not be
amiss to refer to a statement made in the
local house a few days ago by the honorable member for Caesiar, Mr. Grant.
That gentleman is reported as saying that
"by some means and another the Government have managed to get every paper in the province, with the exception of
one or two under their thumb, and the
House will be surprised to hear that nol
satisfied with that, they actually go to
business men and endeavor to induce
them te withdraw their support from tin-
opposition papers." Mr. Grant must
have known whereof he was speaking or
he never would have made the statement.
and we must say, ii this be true, this act
savors more of the days of the first
Napoleon, when all newspapers were
muzzled, and men dare not express their
thoughts, and they only could "utter
curses, not loud, but deep." It certainly
savors, we say, more of these days we
have referred to than to the days ol j
boasted English freedom, liberty oi
speech and liberty of the press.
If the statements of Mr. Grant
be founded on fact, il
is truly a sad commentary on the existing
order of things and the lesson to be
learned is obvious. This journal as an
ixnErsRiiEKT newspaper, does not. in this
case, assume the right or pri-ilege ol
offering any one-sided comments upon
this matter; but it does say that it is a
matter whether true or false that should
be pondered on and digested, not by
partisan politicians—but by all lovers of
freedom, whe believe in living and letting
live, whose ideas retch out beyond the
mere present, and how much benefit may
accrue te them by their adopting a prescribed course, it seems absurd that any
Government in this day should endeavor
to stifle the voice of the people bv
shutting of all channels in which they
might make known their grievances, and
perchance have them redressed. The
press is a mighty lever for good and evil,
and nn opposition paper, or one that is
independent, surely has the right to live
without efforts being made to garrote it,
or by un endeavor to cause its death by
taking from it the means bv which it expects to live—the patronage of the public,
When the people of any count." learn
that TnEY are the Government, and that
the Government are simply their Servants,
a purer, wholesome and more satisfactory
state of affairs will he inaugurated. But
not. till then. In the meantime we will
wait and see if Mr. Grant's charges enn
be substantiated.
This last i
charge we wish to characterize us unqualifiedly false In every particular, and
we challenge the "Free Press" to prove
ihe truth of its statements. After Indulging in a further lot ef bald and un-       ,.

But our space is too short to deal wilh the

this we wish to say; and any person of

see it for himself. But for the benefit of
the evening paper, whose obtuse mind
cannot or will not, see anything in its
proper light, we wish to ask it bow can it
expect any reforms to be made, unless
evils are first pointed out and remedies
suggested. Our contemporary boasts
that it has been here for years and knows
nil about it. It makes a mistake, it bus
been here for lo these many years, we
admit, but during all tbe years it has inflicted Itself upon the Nanaimo public, it
was never alive, it was in a somnolent
condition and could see nothing—until
"the advent" of the Courier, when it
did—we will do it juBtiee—wake up just a
liltle, because it had to, or sleep the sleep
that knows no waking. The silly mendacity of the evening paper is simply
absurd, for it even accuses us of charging
Hint our citizens do not wash their faces.
We would "hurlback the false assertion,"
but we do not feel that it is necessary. It
la so pitiable, so utterly contemptible, bo
far beneath the notice of any respectable
journal, and above all such a huoe lie,
that we do not consider it worthy of contradiction. Let our esteemed contemporary if be will persist in referring to
this paper, do so in a spirit of taimess
and decency, and not further degrade
himself by a course of mendacity and
misrepresentation, that would be worthy
of a lineal descendant of Ananias.

From     Symes    &    Co.,    Pharmaceutical
; Chemists Medical Hall, Simla,  January 5th,
; 1SS0:     To J. T. Davenport, Fs"n., 33 Great
Russell  Street,  Bloomsbury, London, Denr
j Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you  upon the wide-spread rcpu-
j tat ion  this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. I.
Collis  Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned fir
itself,  not only in Hindostan,   but all over
t'i   East.     Asa remedy of genera]  utility,
vve  much question  whether a better is imported   into the  country,   and   we  shalll c
■j';d  to hear of its finding a place in every
•     ' .•Indian home.    The other brands,   \\c
are  happy to say, are now relegated  to  thfl
native bazaars, and judging from their sale,
we   fancy   their   sojurn   there   will be but
evanescent.   We   could  multiply instances
infinitum  of  the   extraordinary   efficacy of
Pr. Collis Browne's Chloipdync in liian(ma
and   2nd    Dysentery    Spasms,     Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
as a general  Sedative,   that  have occurred
■ under our personal observation during many
; years.    In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even in
: the  more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling  power.     Wc
have never used  sny  other form   of  tin's
'   medicine  than  Collis Browne's, from a firm
! conviction  that it is decidedly thc hest, and
also from a sense <•/ duly we owe to thc pro"
!'i--.;i n   and   the   public,   as   wc ^n; ofthe
opinion  tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is  A  DELIBERATE
BREACH OF  FAITH  ON  THE  PART
OF THE CHEMIST   TO    PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT   ALIKE.     We   are   sir,
faithfully yours,  Symes  & Co., Members of
the  Pharm.     Society of Great Britain, His
Excellency the Viceroy's Chemists.

went to sleep. The freight train came
along and passed over her, severing the

A W07I.-1VS VISION.
On the 25th of January last, Mrs. Paulina
King, a rolorcrl woman of Detroit, had a
"vision," in which she wns commanded by
thc Lord to fast forty days and forty nights.
Being n religious fanatic, she entered upon
what seemed lo her a plain duty with perfect
faith that she would pass through,thc ordeal,
and th.it the Lord would be glorified. There
seems to he little doubt that the order was
carried out, For the first seven days she
drank nn water. Then the Lord appeared
lo her ngain and commanded her to drink,
From that lime on she took water until the
27 of February, bul since then she has drank
nothing until yesterday, when her long fast
ended. Thc event was made the occasion of
feast and merry-making, which" attracted a
great crowd to the court house, where the
least was held, Tlie negroes brought food
in considerable abundance, and Mrs. Ping
made a good square meal of oysters, cold
turkey, ham and other substantiate, which
she enjoyed greatly. When Mrs. King entered
upon her fast she weighed 113 pounds. A
day or two ago she "lipped the balance'
at eighty-nine. She is much emaciated,
but declares that she did not suffer a particle
during her fasting and had no desire for food.
Her strength rcmaiaed with her and she did
her washing and ironing and performed her
usual household duties without Inconreni
cuce. She proposes now to become an
evangelist and -jo forth and do the master's
work in such fa-Ids as He may direct. She
is 32 years of age and lias a husband and two
childred. She commenced to hare "vlsUns"
about three years apt. She is illiterate, but
quote*. Scripture freely.
