otlier emotion he did not manifest it.
Tho Carlsons took a good look at the
prisoner. No oilier party in identification proceeding uttering' a word. Thc
Carlsons were then taken In the State's

"Comox Settler" writes as follows lo
the Vicioria Times: Mr. Hallidny, public
school Icacbt'i' at Victoria, came to Co-
ninx when the schools closed for the
summer holidays, ami almost immediately
busied himself in getting up 11 petition lo
Ihe I loo. .Jol. 11 Rolisnii, Inviting him In
Comox lo speak on public matters. The
petition   wns   signed   by  ::   number   of
friends nml opponents nf ibe government
anil ill due time the new  Premier put ill
an appearance.   Mr- Hnlliday's Sons had
ia. 11.. ...a-....,;.....«...., itirougli lhe ilii-
irit'i ami posted up notices calling tlie
people tn the meeting, and Hallidny himself went to I loiiniiin Islnnd nml personally notified the residents there nf the
great man's coining.
Mr. laiibsnn arrived nl  Don mall Islnnd
on Friday, Oth inst., and met a number
of settlers nu the wharf, to several nl
whom he was Introduced by Ins Man
Friday. Further Ihan escorting M:ss
Coughlan, ibe school teacher on ihe
Island, ashore—much in the chagrin of
Purser Lindsay—he performed no public
duty, and did lint even condescend to
speak lo the residents on any one of the
many questions in which thev ore interested.
From Denman Island the Isabel proceeded to I'nion Bay, where she took on
coal for the first lime from the Union
mines. During the stoppage here. Mr.
Robson was Introduced in ihe manager
of tbe mines, Mr. Little, and during file
course of a brief conversation inquired
into the working of the mine and as to
how the colored miners were getting
along. Mr. Little was of the opinion that
they would do very well lor a standby,
and he was ndvi. id bv Mr. Robson tn get
them registered ns quickly ns tho law
would allow.
Thc Isabel arrived at Comox at fl p. ni.
and Mr. Robson was driven around Ihe
settlement by Mr. Halliday, dining at
j that gentleman's residence in the evening. The meeting, called at ,1 o'clock in
tlie middle school house, wns attended
by about IM) people. The chair was occupied by Mr. T. l'ierey, who Introduced
Mr. Hobson, who began in his usual
highllown style, dwelling for some lime
on the prospects of the settlement ami
remarking specially on the great change
Hint hnd Inkeii place in the district since
he bad been there last, which was at the
time of the Biuister election, when be
WHS defeated. Before proceeding lo business, he requested the settlers lo state
I heir grievances.
Messrs. Crapiliart, Millegan, Crawford,
S. l'ierey and several others explained
that  tho   principal Improvement tbey
asked to have carried out  was the construction of a road  to tbe   I'nion  Mine.
Tbey loudly complained about the milliner in which government agent Bentley
I un I expended appropriations lor the district and asked  for a correction of the
j great abuses which  he was  responsible
j for. advising the appointment of threei
commissioners to assist the government
BgOllt.     Mi. Robson would not  promise 1
I to appoint the three commissioners asked
'funis tlie course would  be un  unusual'
! one. He strongly recommended the set-
'Hers lo organise a municipality so that
j tbey could handle tlseir own money.    As !
to the riiiul to the   I'nion   Mines,  if the.
settlers   agreed  to allow  one  thousand;
dollars trom the present appropriations J
I to be used Ior 1 bat purpose, he  would,
promise Io see that it. was laid out to the
best advantage and that he would get a I
special grunt In complete  it   next  year. J
Taking ■■> memorandum out of his pocket,
he lold the meeting thai the  district Ior'
the hiBt four years had  received $14,000 i
and the government In  return  had re-
ceived 16,000 from the district.   This, he
claimed, was a fair showing for lhc gov- j
eminent, und he thought the people had
no right to complain of Iheir roads  and,
want of accommodation,
Mr. Robb asked Mr. Kobson if he had |
the particulars of expenditures und collect ions  in  nny  other district,  such us
Cowichan.
At this rather polite request Mr. Hobson became indignant, and told the questioner that he had not come here lo dis-
cubs the whole government of tlie country, but only to hear the grievances of
the people of Comox, and if he, Mr. Robb,
would say much more, he (Robson)
Would say something thai wonld lie disagreeable.
The meeting appointed three of the
set Here to look over the I'nion toad with
Mr. Bentley, to lay it out to the best advantage.
Mr. Robson promised to visit Comox
again when the shooting season was on,
or when an election was brewing.
The meeting adjourned at 1:;!(). The
general opinion here is thut the "honest
one" is feeling his wny ue a candidate for
Couiox, while a few think that tlie Victoria school teacher is becoming tired nf
teaching the young idea how to shoot and
will seek the bubble reputation through
the ballot box.

Lund   Aug. LL—According   to tbe
NationalHeitun'g o( Berlin, which claims
to have positive information on the subject, an agreement was reached at the
recent conference between Emperor William and Lord Salisbury, which, to ull
intents ami purposes, amounts to an
alliance between Germany and England,
although nn formal treaty'was concluded.
A memorandum was drawn up covering
Hie points upon which an understanding wns reached. Jt is certain that
this memorandum provides fnr the contingency of u war iu which either
nation might become involved, and de-
lines the obligations assumed in such an
event by the other. The German press
seems to be quite generally agreed that
so much has been accomplished, and
some well informed newspapers even go
so far ns to say that a treaty is in course
of preparation. This, however, is probably incorrect. It is not believed here
that Lord Salisbury would undertake to
commit any future government of England to a programme outlined in such an
agreement, and ns tbe agreement will
have the force of a treaty so long as
be holds the reins of power, Germany
will lie satisfied witb a formal treaty. The
French press is in a perfect ferment over
this whole business and the opposition
papers are chat'.'ing tbe government with
having driven England into tbe aims of
Germany by their foolish policy of irritating ber, notably in tbe refusal to sanction the Egyptian convention scheme
upon whicli England had set ber heart,
and iii repealed protests against British
occupation in Egypt about whicli France
need not have cared a button. Even so
conservative an organ as /.« France
while upholding Hie refusal of Spuller,
foreign minister, in sanction tbe convention, still continues, the policy of irrita-
talion lo which the government resorted
in its treatment of England and expresses
the fear tbat such a policy may yet drive
the English into the triple alliance.
Members of Parliament whose relations
with Hie Home Secretary are intimate,
express Hie belief Hint be will postpone
action in the case oi Mrs. Maybrick until
the lust moment wilb the Idea that she
may yet confess.

Editor Coibier:—Your report of my
remarks on Sunday evening is so fear-
fnllv garbled that in justice to uivself 1
must ask you for once to break the rule
which you laid down in regard to vour
editorials upon my sermons, and permit
a few words in reply. I do not wish this
for the sake of those who heard me, for I
' can trust their intelligence; but I deem it
right to those who nere not present.
'•We that are Btroug ought to bear the
infirmities ofthe weak," was my text,
and the following is an exact excerpt
from what I bad written und what 1
read:
"This principle nf Christian ethics applies to every phase of religious thought,
word anil   action.     All   through  one's
Christian career il  says — since Christ
pleased not himself, but cared so mack
i for me I must also care for others *  *  *
That oppression may be carried on within
the limits of statute law,  is well known.
i But the statute law is not the standard
of Christian conduct. Christian morality
extends to tlie thoughts as well as to the
words and actions, and Christian ethics
cannot be confined  within  the bare re-
Iqulrementa ofthe law of the land, bnt
I must supplement that law as Christian
j morality does,   For example, itwould be
1 within the law for an employer of labor
' t.> bring foreigners  here when crowds
were going idle simply through scarcity
j of work, and even lo reduce the wages
of the employees when competition Tor
work became" keen.   But I maintain that
such conduct  is nol in   Ihe spirit of the
gospel of Jesus.   The strong may compel
me tn admit  that be is strong; but it
takes another course to convince me tbat
he's using Ids strength in the spirit of
Christian religion.    When you look to
tbe consequences and not to the single
act tbere can be no hesitation in saying
fl  ii  contrary  to the spirit of ing text.
Pleasing ourselves may mean oppressing
our neighbours and "neighbour" is so
wide a term and as comprehensive lo-
day as when Jesus used it. If in His dav
it could mean a despised and bated Ba-
maritau, it is no stretch of it to-day to
apply it to au employee or a tenant."
How your reporter could associate that
with your paper and any article tbat may
hare appeared in its columns Icannotsee.
But how you can upon it base such an
article as you print this morning is only
comprehensible to me upon one theory—
Hint you had allowed the bitterness of
your feelings to run away with your reason. But I trust that "with the exact
words before you, you will take such an
honourable course as gentlemen follow
when they are shown to be completely,
if not grossly, in error. The remainder
of your two articles I must pass over at
this time, though tbey are almost as far
from being a fair statement of what I
read. But having shown the inaccuracy
of your reporter in the one instance, I
may leave your readers free to trust bim
in lhe rest us far as he deserves.
Yours, Ac,

Editor Coirier ;—Will you allow me
space in wbich to express thc extreme
disgust of myself and also of those persons who sat more iuunedi uelv around
me at the I. O. G. f. concert, (held on
Monday evening at the Institute) at being
forced to listen to a would-be peculiar--
but in reality deadly dull—harangue de-
livcrcal by the Rev. Mr. Millar, ot the
Presbyterian Church in Nanainio, the
burden nf which appeared to he that electors should select candidates for parliamentary and civic honors on the sole
qualification tliat they 'the candidates)
eschew vinous and spirituous liquors and
cleave to water, simple, if occasionally

He was along in years as I saw by

bis goods tliat his name was Cross.
He was a tall man, and his build
showed that lie was a man of gre.it
muscular power. He examined tho
wolf skin for a moment, then threw it
from him, muttering a deep curse, the
meaning of whicli I did not understand. I privately asked my friend
what it meant.
"Ah I" sa'd he, "be lias a sad story
tn tell."
.My neighbor, who bad only come rt.
a guide, went home in tlie afternoon,
and us Mr. Cross was a me-vhat fatigued by tho journey from tbo settlement, wo did not leave tbe camp
that day. I was very anxious to hear
Mr. C.'s story, and alter supper we sat
around tbe lire for some time, telling
ubout ibo moose and tho various
things lhat had happened during our
few days' stay ut the bead of Bog river,
which wus tho name of tho locality
where wo were slopping. After my
friend und I had exhausted all our
talcs, not forgetting that uwful night's
watching at tbo camp door, wo asked
Mr. Cross to telr us something of his
bunting exploits.

glistening in his eye
I lold him we would bo pleased to
bear his story, but did not wish fir
him tu call unytliing to remembi-uiiii'
that would cause him grief. Hu iv
plied: "The wound has been healed
these many years, though often now
it seems to bleed afresh; but my storv
uow I will tell.
"I was born in tho northern purt id
Vermont. My father was a farniei.
and as I was the only child, my father gave me tho homestead. He died
.{iiito young and tlm care of tho farm
devolved on me. My mother soon
became lamo and unable to do llio
work, and I resolved to marry. Dear
Louisu, u farmer's daughter who
lived hut a few miles away, wus lhe
0110 to whom 1 gave my heart and
band, and, indeed, she was worthy n.
tho love of any man. My mother soon
after died, and we laid her besido hor
husband in tho churchyard.
"Two children were born to us,
Tommy und Louisa, Wo watched
over them in their infancy, and loved
thom dearly. Tommy was 7, and
Louie, as wo called her, was 5. School
was to commence the next Mouday,
and us thoy had never been lo school,
wo made arrangements lo send them.
The schoolhouso was about one-luilf
a milo oil', beyond a piece of woods.
I went with them tho first and second
day, and met Ihem at night, as thoy
were afraid to go through tho woods
alone; but tho third day Tommy said,
'Papa need not go with us any more,
wo can go alone.' I granted their
wish, and soon saw them disappear,
goiug toward tho schoolhouse, swinging tlieir littlo dinnerpails.
"They had been gone but a few
minutes. I had taken up my ax, and
wus about commencing to cut somo
wood. I heard littlo Tommy scream;
'0 dear, papal 0 dour, papal' burst
upon my ears; and ut tho same moment 1 heard littlo Lulie cull mamma,
mammal It is needless to say that 1
rushed to their reseuo, tightly grasping my iix. In one minuto I saw two
wolves tearing my dear children to
pieces. With nn unearthly yell, I
rushed upon them. Ono left my child
und sprung upon mc; ho lay dead tho
next instant. I sprang upon the oilier
that was tearing tho llesh from tho
cheek of my little girl; but ho ran
swiftly away. Poor little Lulie was
dead; littlo Tommy raised his torn
and bloody hand, and faintly said:
'0 papa, I wish you come forel' It
was his last words; iu a few momenta
ho breathed his last. I look my dear
ones in my arms, and curried tliem to
my house. My wifo was at tho barn.
I lay them on tho bed; my wife soon
camo in. She looked upon her chil
dren, uttered a fearful wail of sorrow,
aud fell almost lifeless upon tho floor!
Tho shock was too much for hor, and
indeed, more than many mothers
could have stood, and within one
month sho died a raving maniac. She
sleeps in Vermont beside her dear babes
sho loved so well." Wlien he had finished his story there was not a dry oye
in tho camp, and for some time not a
word was spoken. But tho evening
was far spent, and we soon retired to
our bods to dream over tho events of
tho day. —Thomas A. Crabtreo in Lew-

still moro difficult to suggest any satisfactory explanation. Several hypotheses havo been presented, none of
whicli appeal's entirely to meet the
case. I havo already "remarked that
thero has not been lucking tho suggestion thut theso curious streaks represent tho lines of actual artificial water
courses on Mars. Tho straight and
undeviuting course which thoy pursue
might be regarded as lending some
degree of probability lo such n view;
but tho enormous scale on which they
oxist seems lo compel llio rejection of
tho hypothesis. It is true flint, if wo
consider only tho influence of the
forco of* gravity on Mors, giants could
dwell upon thnt planet whose
tnoi'linnioal achievements might vastly
surpass tho greatest performances of
our engineers) for a body weigh ino; a
ton on the earth would veigli only
seventy hundred and sixty pounds on
Mare, nnd, on the other hand, a man
on Mors possessing relatively the
samo activity as one of us might be
fifteen feot tall and strong in proportion. But, even granting tho existence of such a race ot Qoliaths on our
neighbor world, it is not conceivable
that they could havo constructed a
system of tremendouscanals over half
llio surface of their planet, or that
they would bavo done it if they could.
Tho canals of Mars aro enormously
disproportioned in magnitude to the
most gigantic inhabitants that a due
regard for the law of gravitation
would suffer us to imagine there.—

Russell Street, Uloomsbury, London. Dear
Sir:—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wiil**-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne'i Chlorodyne. has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy uf general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, are now relegated to the
native bazaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their lojum there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efllcacy uf
Dr. Collis Browne'l Chlorodyne in Diarrho-*,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramp*.
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*.. general Sedative, that have otcirrec.
und*.f our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, we
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -iny other foim of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm _
conviction  that it is decidedly the best, and ; NPW    P"RTTTT  ST(YR"F

Much of the Newcastle Townsite properly
was in a very unsettled condition and in
addition to that he would have to build a
tremendous wharf to clear Carpenters'
Kock. The Company is now working on
the extreme limit of their coal land, and
he is afraid that if he tried to bring the
railway to Nauaimo it would be a very
long time before the Company would be
able to commence shipping coal—possibly

and in need of assistance and be had
heard several conflicting reports. The
alderman Baid he had seen the man who
looked sick and complained of having his
uncle disabled. I move that the matter

work.    He has very few friends here.
