I Chicago, Aug. 8.—Reports were seat
1 out from Chicaeo last night to the effect
j that Burke had made a full confession.
To support this statement it was said
with some positivenesa, that thc United
j States attorney bad been in conference
I with Burke for several hours during the
j evening, and that the man had Ht last
j told all be knew of the Cronin murder.
1 Diligent inquiry fails to substantiate any
I of these statements. Burke was quite
: alone during the evening, and received
■ no visitors, official or otherwise.
Burke was removed from the Armory
to the eounty jail just before noon lo-day.
The transfer wns made quietly and without  attracting any   attention,    Burke,
after the usual preliminaries',   was   con-
. signed   to   the   boys'   dupartment   and
'locked up.    At noon when the hour arrived for lhc argument tobeheard before
Jutlge   Baker  on  the  revised   writ of
habeas  corpus,   Officer   Collins    made
answer  that   the   prisoner had already
been  delivered   to the sheriff of Cook
j county and was in lhc county jail.    Mr.
Forrest, for the prisoner, stated that that
\ was satisfactory and that no further pro-
! ceedings would be taken in the case. The
j crowd that had gathered in expectation
of a legal light went away disappointed.

Helena, Mont., Aug. 8.—A man named
lteeil has been making a lour of the Yellowstone Park with Billy Milligan,
as driver. Reeal had considerable money
with him and while ou a spree gave Miil-
Igan $700 to carry for him, On their return trip through tlie park Reed, still
under the Influence of liquor, made
known to liis companion the fact that he
had in his valise valuable family
diamonds, On arrival al the Springs he
retired early. Next morning Milligan and
the diamonds were mis dug. Reed started
in pursuit and captured liis man anal
turned him over to soldiers in the park,
but as there is no law In the park Lieut.
Edwards was compelled to let him go.
Reed's losses amount to $10,000.
Montreal, Aug. 8.—A cable dispatch to
the Gazette from London says: ''Imperial
authorities have alecided that British
rights must be protected from outrage
in Behring Sea. The belisf here iti that
when the United States see the determined attitude of Ureal Britain in nup-
port of Canada they will no longer place
Obstructions in the way of a speedy and
peaceful settlement of affairs. Pauure-
lots, Salisbury and Knutsford have been
iu a-onstant communia'ation during ihe
last few alays. Journals of all shades of
opinions maintain the illegality anil in-
defenciblllty of the United States action."
The Gazette, speaking of the above,
says: "The seizure, though it had such a
ridiculous ending, gives promise of resulting more satisfactorily than wns ex-
pecteal, and may directly bring about the
settlement of a much vexed question.
Cable dispatches announce that Salisbury has taken the matter up and will
support the Canadians in their just rights
and that these include free entry into
Behring Sea, cannot be reasonably
denied. If the matter can once be made
the subject of fair minded negotiation or
referred to the arbitration of an independent power, there can be uo doubt of
the result."

Paris, Aug. 8.—The High Court of Impeachment for the trial of General Boulanger, Henri Rochefort, Count Dillon
and others on the charge of high treason
opened its sittings this morning at the

whieh will he so wordeal as to give the
English government no alternative,

jurisdiction, than to assent to their extradition. It Is given out (hat in that event
the general and his companions will lose

The summons commanding the accused

Dillon, he snid, bad been expelled from

During the sitting of the high court the

UETTINO SUSPICIOUS.
London, Aug. 8.—Both the Russian
and French press take no pains to conceal the annoyance which seems to be
felt in both countries at the warmth with
which Emperor William was received in
England. But great as is this annoyance,
tbe surprise is greater yet at what they
speak of as the veering of English
opinion. They evidently expected that
the young Emperor woulal be hooted at
and reviled by John Bull, at least that
the coolness of his reception would be
sufficiently marked to leave its impies-
sion npon the future relations ot the two
powers. Kntirelv disappointed in this
expectation, thc French press almost
universally, and the Russian very largely, revert to the extreme and proclaim
their suspicions that England and Germany are on the point of concluding an
alliance offensive and defensive.

New Vork, Aug. 8.—Eben S. Allen,
President of the Green Star Line Co.,
was arrested to-day for forging cert ideates
of stock for about 700 shares. Tbe
amount of Allen's defalcations are stated
to be $120,000 or $130,000. The prisoner
has made a confession iu which he says
that four years ago he became financially
interested in a patent lire escape. He
iost all the money be put in and in the
embarrassment thus caused, he yielded
to the temptation to raise money by false
issues of stocks, lie forged thc signatures of the company's treasurer ami
secretary and sold aliout 7uo shares of
this bogus stoa'k. Many of the shares are
now lu the hands of innocent holders.
The false issues went on for lour years
without detection, Yesterday, iu Presidenl Allen's absence, a broker colled at
his ollia'e tai have some stock transferred
for u purchaser, and lhe treasurer, in
making the necessarv comparison with
the books, Bnld that the share numbers I
were duplicated. A meeting of the directors was at once called, and President |
Allen's guiit being apparent, it was ite-i
cided to cause Ins arrest, Upon being I
locked up Mr, Allen broke alown anil
confessed his guilt. Ue will be prosecut- i
ed to the full extent of the law. He only
lately returned from a pleasure trip to
Europe and has always lived in a luxurious style. Mr. Allen is married and has
a family.
LETTERS TO THE EDITOR.
KniToh Ci'I'kiks:—Your remarks with
regard to the introduction of Negro labor
into the I'nion mines are well timed and
to the point. It is a matter for deep regret and bitter reflection to know that a
corporation composed principally ef
foreign capital have, after being donated
tbe major part of this Island, introduced
n class of labor not only detrimental te
the country itself, but also an insult to
every white workingman in this community. One would imagine that common gratitude would suggest the desirability ot giving back to the province in the
employment of an industrious and well
behaveal white population Borne return
for the votes of those who made
this foreign corporation n present of the
most valuable coal deposit sn the Pacific
coast. How many times before the
Settlement Act wan passed were the
workingmen of this Province warned
that they would live to curse the dny on
which that Settlement Act became law ?
The election results of this district in
connection with that Settlement Act
have given rise to many doubts as to thc
value of a universal franchise. To ths
miner who through marriage and the
raising of a family has been compelled to
settle down anal make u home in this
district, lhe exercise of the franchise by
his fellow worker and bird of passage is a
source of constant danger aud anxiety.
Having no ties to bind bim to the
country and no interest in its welfars, his
vote, through influence or temporary advancement, is too often thrown in with
the capitalist. In return for those votes,
in return for the support at the poll, and
in return for their gift of coal lands, this
corporation lias established a class settlement by tho menace in power of which
they no dnnht hope to keep the labor
market ttt a .igure to suit themselves.

London, Aug. 8.—There was considerable upioar in the Commons to night
occasioned by an altercation which at
one time promised to end in persoual
violena'c between Chiei Secretary Balfour
ami Edward Harrington, member for
Wesl Kerry, Ireland. Tba' Irish estimates were under consideration, and the
Irish secretary was making bis speech in
support of them, when he took occasion
to refer to a case ol two resident magistrates who had refused to subscribe towards a proposed race meeting because
Harrington, who was a member of the
committee, had violently denounced the
police as covvarals and butchers. Al this
Harrington jumped to his feel and de-
maniled ot Balfour his authority for such
a statement. Balfour merely replied
that he hnd "best authority," anal was
proceeding to continue ids Bpeecb with-
oul further attention to bis question
wha'ii Harrington, his eyes flushing lire
and his clinched hand raiaeal above his
head, made a rush for the speaker, lie-,
fore he could accomplish his
evident purpose of ussaultingj
Balfour, several members rushed forward !
and by main strength restrained the impetuous Irishman. Great, disorder followed, as a matter of course, and for a
time all was confusion. When Harrington had been quieted by his friends and
hail been induced to resume his seat. Mr.
Healy rose on behalf oi Mr. Harrington
and stated that that gentlemen bnal heen
provoked not so much by Balfour's
language aa by an insulting gesture which
he had made use of. Thereupon
Balfour disclaimed any intention ot
insulting Harrington, and this being followed by an apology on the part of the
latter gentleman, the House was enabled
lo settle down to its normal temperature,
and Balfour proceeded with his analysis
of the Irish estimates.

enormous proportions.    The verdict is
Fiiiroit CoiiuiiK:—1 read with very
considerable pleasure your article iu yesterday's issue on this matter, aa tlie subject is one that for a long time past has
interested me. \'ou only deal, however,
with the emigration returns for 1888, and
I should like to supplement your figures
by going into more particulars.
In the first place, the emigration returns for the United Kingdom for the
first Bix months of the present year have
just been published by the Board of
Trade and prove that this stream of human beings flows continuously and exhibits so far no signs of diminishing. The
Irish leaving their native land this year
alreaaly number 43,150, of whom 39,008
hnve gone to the United States, 1200 to
Cnnada, 1300 to Australia, and the balance to Buenos Ayres, the Cape and
other parts.
During the reign of our present illustrious sovereign (now o-J years), Irish
emigrants total up to the astounding
number of nearly four and a-half millions. The exact figures, quoting from
"Mulhall's Dictionary of Statistics," are
4,385,000.
fn the meantime the population ol the
Emerald Isle, which at the beginning of
this century was 6,-216,000 and reached
its highest point in 1846, when it was estimated at 8,80,1,000, has since the latter
dale Bteadily declined year by year, and
the figures of the next census cannot
much exceed 4,500,0,10. Contrast this
with Scotland, which certainly is not
such a fertile country, and has not the
same natural resources for maintaining s
large population. Tbere the inhabitants
number 60 per cent, more than at the-
Queen's accession. In fact, throughout
the whole of our vast Empire Ireland is
the one spot—the solitary district—which
affords un example of a decreasing populace.
I wish to avoid dehateahle matter, and
in fact, figures such us I huve quoted,
ami which anyone with a ''Whit'taker"
can verify, are best lett to tell their own
tale, and for iny part 1 um salistleal aa to
tbe conclusion that an unprejudiced
mind must arrive nt
1 entirely believe, with you that thin
exodus is a necessary, not a voluntary,
abandonment of native soil. Surely there
must be something radically wrong
when a country which at one time supported upwaraia of eight millions of
beings can barely afford sustenance to
bslf that number.    Yours aStc,

Borne or the Mirth Provoking Contortion*.
Indulged Id by Types.
A Chicago writer described an exquisite aa
ouo "whose maimers would adorn a drawing
room," but the unthinking compositor made
it read, "whose manners would alarm a
drowning man."
The Cincinnati Enquirer on.ee created n
genuine sensation by stating, in display type,
that a gang of American counterfeiters had
been '"shaving tho queen," when "shoving
the queer" was evidently what was Intended.
One of the worst instances of misprint*
caused by bad ehirography was where the
heading ,lA honeymoon cut short" waa
uri"tad in full fnce ns "A Hunaarian cutthroat."
Another equally disugrcoable blunder, to
tho parties interested, was where a distinguished traveler whs reported as having recently died "In the richness of sin." The
paper, however, apologized for this candid
admission on tho following day, by saying i
that what the editor intended to write wni j
"tho interior of Asia.''
Perhaps no newspaper writer was evet |
more disturbed hy h trifle thaii was the so I
ciety reporter who, in describing the belle ot j
a recent fashionable party, intended to say
"she looked au fait," but round that an unfeeling blacksmith ..•*■! made it, "she looked |
all feet"
Of all editorial writers, Horaco Greeley I
was most noted for illegible copy. On one
occasion I the "modern Franklin" penned
something about "Suburban journalism advancing," but the type setter, thinking it ont
of his famous agricultural articles, launched j
out wildly with the words. "Superb Jenua*
lem artichokes."
It is somewhat singular how often the onus*
sion of a single seemingly insignificant letter
will alter the entire meaning of u sentence. >
For   instance,   several  errors  are, recorded [       uncohpi
where the lotter "n" has been omitted from

TELLS  OF  HIS  NARROW  ESCAPES.
Bev--r.il Tluics rickt-d Up froiu Cnder a
Fallen Horse—He Had a Leg Over Some
of the Fust-rat Animals That Ever Went
Umler tho Who in America.
William Uonohuo has ridden many of tlio
crack horses in tho past ten years, bas been
the hero of many closo and exciting finishes
and has probably received more severe falls,
broken ribs and hips nnd sustained other injuries than any living jockey. Aud yet in
conversation and manner ho is as gcntlo and
refined as oue of tho celebrated "400," nover
alluding to his narrow escapo and brilliant
record as a horseman unless drawn out by
somo personal friend.
"Which of your many falls was tho worst?"
IV *'Tho most severe was at Now Orleans on
April 84,1883, on the grounds of tho Louisiana Jockey club. It was in tho Cottrill
stakes for 3-year-olds at one milo and a half.
I had tho mount on John Grayer'S chestnut
gelding Warrington, a son of War Dunce and
Nannie P. Anglia was tho favorite, with
Babcock second choice, and tho other starters
being Eflio II. and Mamio YV\ Before an
eighth of a mile had been covered Efllo II.
ft'11 ahead of mo and Warrington stumbled
over her. Anglia, who was behind, camo ou
top of me, crushing his hoof into my right
groin and breaking two ribs. Tho reports of
tho accident iu thu papers and'Guide1 vary,
but mine is tho correct ono. As 1 fell 1
could seo clouds of dlttfe und horses ull in a
heap, but after that I know nothing until j
awoke threo days later in tho Hotel Dieu,
where tho good Sisters of Charity wero nursing me. In that race Apollo finished flrst,
with Babcock second, and Mamio W. third.
Tho accident took placo just after tho start,
as wo wero making tho first turn. I suffered
no pain at the thno, but when I becamo conscious it was impossible to niovo in bod, and
1 had to bo helped by tho good sisters, who
handled mo just like a child.
FOURTEEN DAYS IN BED.
"I was in bed fourteen days, but suffered
no after effects whatever. In fact, I have
been particularly fortumito In all my falls, us
I havo never been annoyed by any of them
after I havo once got well. Had it not been
for the accident Anglia would bavo probably
won and Apollo boon second, but thero was
little hopo for Warrington anyway Ho
would havo finished near l iio tail end. Still
bis peoplo had great confidence in him. Unlike mo, ho has nover been any good since tho
fall. Anglia got up after the accident and
jumped half way over the lent*!.', whero sho
hung until lifted off, Neither Given, who
node her, nor Edwards, who had tho mount
nn Efllo II., was hurt. [Baid Anglia would
probably havo won, becauso on the first day
of tho meeting she had beaten both Babcock
and Apollo in the Pickwick stakes, in which
race I also rode Warrington.1'
"Didn't you havo a Huvere tumble at Monmouth a few years agop'
"You moan that full with Wandering.
yes, it was a big shake up, but I was not severely hurt. 1 believo it was in a purse race
at a mile in July of '85 There wero eight
Btorters and 1 had tilts mount on the lato
John S[ "-oilman's chestnut gelding Wandering. His stable thought thoy had a veritable
'cinch,' ami as I was well within tho weight,
105 pounds, they put me up with instructions
to como away in the stretch. It was ft to 4
■on my mount and my friends wero on to n
mau. At thu post Wandering commenced
his old tricks, and with buck jumping stood
'straight as a steeple'in tho nir. I hung on
with tooth and nail und enjoyed the laughter
from tho graud stand and lawn. The old
horse delayed tho start somo minutes, but
when tho Hag fell ho was full of running. I
had him well In hand, turning f ir home, and
wus preparing lo make my effort, when
Greenland, with Men ton up, fell, and Compensation followed, with Willie Martin. I
was un top of them before I kuow it, and
then all was u blank. Willing hands carried
me under the trees, close by, antl it was not
long before I was ablo to ascertain my injuries. I was laid up for soveral days, and
when next I appeared on tho track it was
with a black oye, coutusions on forehead and
a disabled arm. Of courso you want to kuow
who won tho race! Well, it was Executor—-
a 20 to 1 shot."
BOTH LEGS BROKEN.
"Do you remember any other fulls f*-
"Oh, yes, lots of them. I recall my first
tumblo at Saratoga, away back in tho seventies. Tho two-year-old Warlock threw me,
and though unconscious for nearly half an
hour I was ready to ride in tho next race.
But it was on tho tiravesend track in '87 that
my left leg was broken through tho caroless-
jiiess of a brother jockey. There wero eight
of us in a sweepstakes ut a milo aud a furlong,
and Ada D. was a hot favorite. My mount,
Santa Clans, was thought to have a gootl
chance and was freely backed by his people at
tho respectable odds of eight and ten to one.
Tornado, however, took tho lead and was
never headed. I would have beeu second, if
not first, had uot ono of thu boys crowded
old Santa iuto tho rails on tho first turn.
My horso stumbled and fell, turning a complete somersault with me. My mind was too
confused to think until after I struck tho
ground. This timo I did not loso consciousness, but BUfforod great pain, as my leg was
broken. I was laid up for nine months and
tho Brooklyn Jockey club kindly donated
5500 toward defraying expenses whilo disabled, thu surplus remaining serving us a
nucleus to a fund for tho benefit of sick and
disabled jockeys. No, I never feel thu effect
from thnt fall, anil I think my leg is stronger
than it was before. My other leg was broken
when a boy by a party of friends sky larking."
"Which du you  regard as tho best horse
you ever rode?'
"That is a difficult question tu answer, us I
havo ridden muu> good ones and lots cf bad
ones, but umong tho host weroThora, Girofle,
San Savior and Bole, In my opinion Monarchist was tho greatest race horso this country ever saw. Iio won twelvo straight races
from ono mile to threo miles, ami wns up to
any weight.
"Tho riiliug is much improved in tho past
ten years, and bo is tho racing, Thero aro
moro starters now than iu tho old days, wheu
three or four mado up tho field. Now ten or
twelve frequently go to tho post, and sometimes even more. I havo seen thirty odd at
Brighton, und as you know twenty odd havo
started In big handicaps at Bheopshead and
Brooklyn.
"Tho horses of ten and oven twenty years
ago were equally aa good ovor short courses
ind much better ovor long ones than aro tho
horses of tho present day. Pew thoroughbreds of today can go over a distauco of
ground liko the old times. Trainers and
Owners uro moro honest and enthusiastic and

ANXIETY AND AGONY OF ALTERNATING    HOPE   AND    DESPAIR.
Wall Streel an Excellent school for the
Study «i Banian Nature—Bow Bfcn Are
Swallowed Up In tlie Whirlpool—Several Gates,
I havo observed for years how money is
; swallowed up  in the  vortex  of speculation
. I am continually going to Wall street—I
I feel proof against its temptations—as I like
to watch its currents and study human nature, of which it is an excellent school.   I
meet acquaintances there from every part
I of the Union.    One day I encounter Smith,
of Denver, and I inquire  after  Jones, of
' Omaha, who told me, three months before,
j that lie   had cleared &-iOO,000 by hisopera-
! tions.
] "Jrmesf Oh, they've scalped him. That
last bear attack on the market cleaned him
out completely. He has gone home without
, anything; and he hail $400,000 or $500,000,
made by laud speculation, when ho camo to
New York two years ago.''
"I am very sorry for Jones," I reply.   "Ho
was a good follow and full uf energy."
"He was all   of  that,"'   remarks  Smith.
I "But be wasn't quito smart enough for Wall
Street.   I told him last spring how he was
going, hut ho wouldn't believe me.     Now
j he wishes, 1 fancy, that ho bad taken my
, advice,    A man has to get up pretty early in
the morning tu stand tho racket down here.
j    '-Aren't you afraid, Smith, that they'll get
your scalp one of these daysT
"Not a bit. They've tried it often; but X
wear all my hair yet. I know their ways.
I'm too old n bird to bo caught."
Some mouths later I ran upon Brown, uf
Chicago, and after a little chat 1 express tho
hope that Smith is flourishing,
"Flourishing? Not exactly. Haven't you
heard what happened to him) NoK Ho went
■.hurt on Beading und he got 'busted'in short
order. He's sn poor thut he's in a cheap
hoarding houso in Harlem. You remember
what a figure ho used to cut at the Windsor?
InP.s **%h>g tn get up again; but he nover
can. ilis father left him a handsomo fortune ten years ago, and he couldn't raise $•'300
today. He's too hopeful, too reckless. He
doesn't know when to take in sail,"
"But mayn't you bo in tho samo condition
wine time? The Stock Exchange is the most
uncertain <>f places, A man of your pursuit-; is always living on a mine."
"Dou't bother about tne, I watch theso
thieves. They can't hurt me. i always sleep
witli ono eye open, aud they know it. Chicago is sharper than New York, A man educated there cau get on anywhere Robinson
aud I—you know Robinson, of St. Louis—
haven't got caught yet, and we don't intend
to be. We're as wide awako as any of the
hoys, and they know it."
Six months later I am shaking hands with
Robinson in Exchange place, and refer to
Brown, hoping he is still prosperous.
"I wish he were; but tho fact is that he is
broken down. That big tumblo in Western
Union hurt him irreparably, und he had a
Stroke of paralysis tho next week, and he
hasn't lieen down town since. It was partial
ouly, but it makes Brown look old, He's
(rrown fifteen years older since last Juno.
His sudden success turned his head, and
ho went in too deep. I'm afraid he hasn't
much left. A man iu Wall street has to
learn when to bo bold and when to bo cautious, and Brown never learned this. It was
one of the first lessons that I learned, and I
learned it thoroughly. I've been operating
here six or seven years, and in thut time I've
seen scores of fellows ruined. But I've never
been crippled even, and I ascribe my uniform
success to judgment. Some peoplo call it
luck.    Bah, there's no such thing ns luck."
"But is not your judgment fallible? One
can uot always keep on tho right side of
the market:''
"Pew can; but I am one of tho few."
One evening, just after a week of great
disturbance in stocks, a disturbance almost
approaching panic, I ran upon a well known
broker, man}- of whose customers aro from
tlio west. We fell to talking of tho disasters
ofthe week, and ho mentioned that Hobinson
had lost a lot of money on Manhattan, and
his margined stocks had been sold out. "He
must havo lost several hundred thousand dollars, may be $500,000. He is goiug to St.
Louis to dispose of some real estate belonging to his wife, who has entire confidence in
him and his ability, aud with tho new steko
ho will enter tho street again."
"You havo been a stock broker a long
while," I asked an acquaintance lately,
"what do you candidly think of speculation?
What is the result of your observation? Is
much money mado in Wall street?"
"Almost nothing. Men who mako in one
thing loso in another. I've been twenty-fivo
years in tho street, anil of tho hundreds who
havo operated on margins through ino I can
scarcely recall half a dozen who have not
suffered in the long run. Tho truth is nineteen out of every twenty mon—perhaps
thirty-nine out of forty—nro gamblers by
constitution. And when thoy begin gambling they don't know when to leavo off. No
ono can imagine what misery and crime
Wall street causes unless ho is ou the inside.
I often wish I had gone into some other
business. I have seen so much of tho ovil of
speculation that I novere-poeulnto myself."
Since then my broker friend has failed by
his rash attempt to keep up tt line of stocks
that had been drooping for months, und it is
doubtful if ho can resume. Ho is reported to
me as a desperate speculator for a man of his
means, though for many years ho was ono of
tho most conservative members of llio board.
Tho worst thing about Wall street is that it
ruins men morally not less than financially.
Tho habit of speculating is ns bad as dram
drinking or opium eating. No ono knows,
when ho begins, whero ho will ond. A full
courso of Wall street is apt to sap tho foundations of character, debauch thu sentiments,
overthrow overy principle. It begets with
the successful a lust of greed which nothing
can satisfy, and with tho unsuccessful self
contempt, morbid anxiety, shattered nerves,
tho agony of alternating hope and despair.
Wall street puts humun nature iu tho guttor,
nnd keep** it there.—Junius Hourf Browno in

Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
18S0: To J. T. Davenport, Ksq., 33 Greal
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Deal
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of con-
I gratulating you upon thc wiJc-spread repu*
I tation this justly esteemed medicine, Ur, J.
Collis Jrownc's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Ilindostan, but all ovei
the Kast. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad i«i hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other lirands, we '
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salel
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum uf the extraordinary efficacy uf
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Dlarrnce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, tlie Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*,, general Sedative, that have ofc-mct.
unik ' our personal observation timing man)
years. In Choleraic Diarrha-a, and even if
the more terrible forms of Choleia itself, wc
! have witnessed its controlling power. We
] have never used -,ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the proj
fession and the public, as we nre ofthe I
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 TATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,

Mr. A. Shaw. Station Agenl. returned
vesterday from a visit to his late discoveries in the interior of the [aland, bringing with him some fine specimens of
quarts which were obtaincat several feel
from the surface. On leaving Nanaimo,
Mr. shaw, accompanied by four Indians,
struck amt in the direction of Englishman'.* river, close to which stream they
deserted the beaten track and started
; through the country which is nn lire
for about twenty miles inland and consequently travelling is very dangerous owing to falling trees and hoi ashes which
soon leaves a pedestrian Boleless.
On arriving at his 'prospect" Mr.
shaw and his attendant siwashes set to
work spelling up the lead with apparently satisfacory results by the appearance
of the quartz broughl down.
The fires that are raging iu ihe mountains have alriven the game down to the
lowlands, and any moist, green patch is
saial to he alive with wild animals which
have lied from their mountain fastnesses,
frightened by the lire.
Mr. Shaw intends I" have the quarts

ABOUND  TOWN.
The weather lias been so warm lately
lhat, I have felt loo laity to take my usual
afternoon stroll around the city, principally on account of the dust which flies
up in one'.- face wilh lhe slightest provocation from rude Boreas anal not. as has
been averred, lhal I am afraid lo face the
pink dressed damsels. There is one
thing ahout Nauaimo that 1 admire above
all others, and lhal is lhe inter fearlessness of the youngsters of both sexes in
regard to tbe water. I don't think that
in any other eity I have visited, and I
have seen several, there will he found so
many children who can row and swim as
iu the Black Diamond City. I stood on
the Esplanade and watched about a dozen
youngsters, nol one of which would he
ahov« ten years of »ge, disporting themselves in the sea anal out of thai dozen I
counted eight who could swim ami whal
is more were proud tn exhibil their skill.
Several older persons of the sterner sex
I notice have a rooted aversion lo water
and seldom lake it neat for fear of accidents. I frequently lake mine unadulterated as a mallei of economy and not
through choice.

pass over as a mere matter of detail, expatiating on Ihe Alps, Greenland and
Italy, places which 1 do not know much
about, hul when I led him In Ihe top of
the hill near the Catholic cemetery and
requested his opinion ..f the Gulf of
