IMPORTANT RAILWAY DECISION.
lies Moines, July 12.—The Iowa rail-
rood commission this morning rendered
a decision which it is believed will result
in lowering inter-state rates between both
Chicago and St. Louis and all Iowa
points. The case was that of tbe "Diamond Jo" steamboat line against the
Chicago, Burlington and Quineey Railroad Company. The steamboat company
complained because the railroad company
refused to receive treight from their
boats unless charges were prepaid to
destination. The railroad company announced tbat they refused because river
rates plus Iowa local rates, were lower
than the inter-state ratea. The commissioners held ibis to be an unlawful
discriminotion, and ordered the railroad
company to treat all carriers alike.
COUUKBCE  COMMISSION.
Detroit, July 12—The Senate Interstate
Commerce .Commission continued its investigation of Canadian roads here today. The testimony was confined to
questions of the opportunities which
Canadian roads have to compete unfairly,
and the fact whether they did not do so.
Little information on these points was el-
icitedjand the commission adjourned to
meetin Chicago on Monday,

Chicago, July 12.—Thc Tribune this
morning soys representatives of an Eng-
1) h syndicate arc in Chicago for the
purpose of buying gas trusts and plants,
and that they propose to furnish gas at
25 cents per 1,000 feet. The syndicate
proposes to organize a company with a
capital of $2,000,000 and to put in plants
for making gas all over the United
States, following the line of tbe least resistance and largest profits. If local
capitalists accept the proposition made
by the syndicate, work will begin at
once, as plenty of capital Is said to be behind the Englishmen. Their names are
withheld for the present, but they are
well-known to Chicago bankers, and the
quality and quantity of their financial
backing is said to be above suspicion.

THE JAP WINS THE WESSTLINQ MATCH.
Seattle, W. T„ July 12.—The wrestling
match between Matsada Sorakiohi, the
Jap, and Peter Schumacher, came off
last evening. The match was in the
Graco-Roman style, best two falls out of
three, for tbe sum of $500 a Bide and a
percentage of the gate money. There was
a great delay in getting things into shape,
and it was after 10 o'clock before tbe
master of ceremonies introduced the
principals to the expectant audience.
Mr. W. H. Quinn, of the Olympic Club,
of San Francisco, was mutually agreed
upon as releree, while Mr. \V. Parry was
selected as time-keeper. Before calling
time, Mr. Quinn announced that he had
come on from Victoria especially to witness the match, and at its conclusion intended to challenge the winner to another
match to take place any time within Bix
weeks, for any amount from $100 to
$1,000 a side. At 10:12 p. m. time was
called, both contestants going warily at
the work before them and watching
eagerly for a chance to secure a good
hold. Sorakichi finally, with the quickness of lightning, seized an offered opportunity and threw Schumacher, half the
latter's body projecting over the platform
and bis feet almost touching the Boor.
The first fall was awarded the Jap, the
time being six minutes and a half. The
second was a beautiful exhibition, and
was finally won by Schumacher, who
threw Sorakichi, time fifteen minutes.
The third round was a short one but exceedingly lively, the Jap once lifting
Schumacher completely off his feet and
smashed him to tbe floor, but the cat-like
agility of the latter stood him in good
stead and he escaped. Sorakichi finally
succeeded in getting the strangler,
Lewis' favorite hold, and after standinga
minute of the most fearful choking,
Schumacher's hand convulsively tapped
the floor two or three times, signifiing
that he could stand it no longer, and the
match was awarded Sorakichi.
PRIZE FIOHT.—MimPHY V.  GRIFFIN.
San Francisco, July 12.—Billy Murphy
champion feather-weight of Australia,
and Johnny Griffin, the Braintree,
Massachusetts, feather-weight, fought for
a purse of seventeen hundred and fifty
dollars at the California Athletic Club
this evening and Murphy won in three
rounds. The match waB originally made
between Griffin and Tommy Warren,
champion of the featherweight class in
America, but AVarren sprained bis foot
last Wednesday and Murphy, who only
arrived from Australia a few weeks ago,
and who has not trained to any extent,
took his place. Griffin entered the ring
weighing 120'... pounds and Murphy
tipped the scales at 117. Time was called
at 9 :lti. Murphy Immediately took the
aggressive but the round was uneventful.
In the second round he continued to
force tbe fighting and landed several
good ones, Griffin doing little work, evidently desiring to save himself. When

DEPUTY BIIEBIFFB  WEAKEN.
Pittsburgh, July 12.—Everything was
quiet at the Homestead to-day until the
arrival of the 11:40 train from Pittsburgh. This train brought a posse of
124 deputy sheriffs to guard the Homestead works. About 1000 men, women
and children guarded the gates to the
mill yard, and refused to permit them to
be opened for the deputies to enter.
When the men stepped irom the train
part of them left the platform to the
right, other to the left. When the train
pulled in tbe strikers rushed forward and
occupied the space between the lines of
deputies.  President Welhe, of the Antal-
Samated Association, attempted to ad-
ress the strikers, counseling moderation
in their actions, but hi* voice waa lost in
the turmoil, and crowds of strikers with
their wives and children set to work to
persuade the posse of sheriffs to resign
their offices and return home. In a few
momenta twelve of tbe deputies pulled
off their badges and declared that they
could not withstand the entreaties, and
would, return to Pittsburgh. Soon the
ranks of tbe deputies were depleted !n
number until only fifteen remained, who
were regular sheriffs detailed to police
duty. Forty of the 124 deputies returned
to Pittsburgh on the noon train, and the
remainder will com* some time this af-
Murphy swung his right and reached
Grffhn's shoulder. The latter retaliated
on Murphy's chest and then the fighting
became fast and furious. The exchange
of blows was extremely lively, the Australian landing pretty effectively.
Murphy's right shot out and caught the
Braintree man square on the jaw and he
fell heavily to the floor knocked out. He
had to be carried to his corner, Murphy
assisting. The winner will meet Frank
Murphy, the English featherweight, at
the same club on the 29th of this month.
HAYTI  NOTIFIED.

Paris, June 12.—In the lobby of the
Chamber of Deputies to-day a quarrel
occurred between L. Thompson, Algerian

M. Laure sent his adversary a challenge
to fight a duel, which was promptly accepted. They fight with pistols to-morrow and fight to kill.

Chicago, July 12—Sullivan and his

pair will remain to-night. It is not known
what Sullivan's plans for to-morrow are,
as he refuses to be interviewed, His
friends are guarding him very closely for
fear some policeman may take it Into his
head to arrest the "big fellow" and secure
the $500 reward offered by Governor
Lowery. Although Sullivan was Been in
Curley's saloon late to-night, any one
who inquires for John is assured by Cur-
lay that he is not there.

TBE   FABNELl.   COMMISSION.
London, July 12.—Before the Parnell
Commission to-day, Sir Charles Russell
asked that Mr. Soames, counsel for the
Times, produce a list of all payments
made to the witnesses on behalf of the
Times, and also all communications to
and from agents of the Timet in Ireland
and America. Sir Richard Webster de
clined to produce the communications
asked for. Mr' Soames was recalled and
said he had not yet made out the list of
sums paid to witnesses. There was no
definite arrangement as to how Le Caron
should be paid. Mr. Macdonald, for the
Timet, said it was understood that Le
Caron should be provided for. He had
lost his employment in Government services, and as long as he should need It
he wns to receive assistance. Mr. Houston, secretary of tho Loyal and Patriotic
Union, was recalled. He stated that
Pigott was first mentioned to him as a
useful wltnesB by Lord Hallbridge. The
Parnellism and Crime series of articles,
afterwards embodied in the pamphlet,
were an elaborate reprint of "Parnellism"
unmasked. The work was compiled by
Pigott, for which witness paid him £00.
He was willing to place the books of the
Loyal aud Patriotic Union before the
court but objected to tbeir being examined by the political opponents of the
Union. Sir Charles demanded the production of the books. He desired to prove
by them that the whole Indictment contained in
"PABNKLLIBM AND CB1UE"
proceeded from the Loyal and Patriotic
Union and tbat Pigott was used by that
powerful political organization to concoct
the plan. Sir Richard Webster contended that thc books were wanted merely in
order to give Parnellites free range in
other political matters. The court decided against Sir Charles Russell's application. Sir Charles Russell intimated
that he had received written instructions
from Parnell regarding the further conduct of the case which required him to
ask the court for a delay on order to have
an opportunity to consider the position
of Parnell and Davitt. The commission
adjourned until Tuesday. It is understood that Parnell's instructions to Sir
Chns. Russell were to be withdrawn from
the case and it is further understood that
the Irish lender's decision in the matter
is final.

AN  ENGLISH  VESSEL  BUBNED    AT  A  tlUAY.
Berlin, July 12.—A Hre broke out early
this morning in the Hemp warehouse on
Pretzel Quays, at Koenigsburg, and destroyed property valued at $500,000
marks.
The English steamer Tortona was
lying at the quay when the fire broke out
and so rapidly did it spread that it was
impossible to rescue the vessel and she
burned to thc water's edge. The crew
only saved themselves by clambering up
the rigging and thence to the masts of
vessels lying alongside. There were
many very narrow escapes.

Victorians to take some action toward
securing   railway   connection   with the
mainland.
Amor De   Cosmos,   president of the
Victoria, Saanich A New Westminster
Railway Co., was firs! called upon. He
said. The question of constructing a
new railway to connect Vancouver Island
with the mainland was not a political or
party question. It was a project tliat
should receive the uuanimous support of
all on the Island. By going up the line
of the E. ai N. railway it would be found
that the further north we go, the greater
the distance from the Island to the mainland. The Victoria, Saanich and New
Westminster Railway Co., proposed to
build a first-class railway to enable the
trains to make very fast time. The run
from Victoria to New Westminster would
be made in 2hrs. 40 min., actual running
time, He thought that the people of
Victoria should lend theiraidtoconstruct
a road that would enable the time for
transportation ol mails from Victoria to
New Westminster to be reduced by five
hours.
Referring to the plan of the new road,
he explained that there would be no
trouble in navigating the water which
it was proposed to terry. There would be
no danger to the ferry boats. It was proposed to put on at least one very fast boat
capable of making 21 knots an hour—two
knots more than the new Anderson
ocean steamers were capable of making.
The freight boat would also in all probability be just as fast. In round numbers it was proposed to have 48 miles of
railway and 23 knots of water to enable
mails, freight and passengers to reach
Victoria from New Westminster in two
hours and less than 40 minutes. Going
by way ot Blaine, it would be possible to
go from Victoria to Whatcom on Belling-
ham Bay, by the new road, in about
three hours. In the proposal under discussion, he thought Vietoria would find
her salvation. I! would mean the keeping Esquimalt as the terminus of the
Oriental steamers. It was proposed to
have Esquimalt as the ocean terminus of
the new line. In regard to the coBt of
this railway, he was assured that the
scheme could be carried to completion
for *2,000,000, with a contingent fund of
$500,000; nnd connection secured with
the Canadian Pacific Railwav, Northern
Pacific Railway and Union Pacific Railway. Besides giving their time so far,
the projectors of the new road had expended about $13,000 in having surveys
prepared and in getting the act o[ incorporation.
After a speech from Lieut.-Col. Prior,
M. P., Mr. M. W. T. Drake moved the
followng resolution i
That the citizens of Victoria assembled
in public meeting hereby approve of and
endorse the action of the municipal
council of Vietoria in framing by-lawB for
the purpose of grantinc aid to the Vietoria, Saanich ai New Westminster Railway Comprny.
Dr. Milne seconded the resolution,
which was declared dul\ curried—Colonist.

Thero is no reality in the sentimental assertion that the sins of the lad are as degrading as those of the girl. The instinct ol the

How to Sweep a Boom.
'Detroit Free Press "Household."]
Friday in most houses is looked upon as
tLi regular sweeping day. As many young
housewives have not a clear idea how a
room should be swept, perhaps the following may not come amiss. First, completely
cover your hair with a cap made of cambric. Cut out a large oval-shaped piece,
hem or bind the edges and about an inon
from the bonier run on a narrow strip of
the goods into which put an elastic drawing
string. The first step is to remove all the
books, knicknacks, etc, from the room, removing the dust from each article before
carrying it out Shake out and pin up any
curtains that reach to the floor, open the
windows and whip all stuffed furniture with
a rattan, then follow with a whisk, brushing
the dust out thoroughly.
Then dust the tables and remove all to the
hall or another room. Now dust the tops oi
the doors, the windows, chandeliers, pic
tures and woodwork with v. feather duster.
Fin a soft cloth over the broom and sweep
down the walls. Now the room is empty
save two or three large pieces ot furniture,
which should be covered with calico or old
sheets. Scatter tea leaves, which should be
almost dry, on the floor, and begin sweeping by brushing out the corners and all
along the walls with a whisk broom; tben
sweep with a large broom, to the center of
the room. Gather up the dnst and brush the
whole room once more, lightly and quickly.
Once in two months it is a very good plan
to wipe up the carpet with a cloth wet in a
pail of warm water in which a beefs gall
has been emptied. This pailful will do two
or three rooms. After the sweeping dust
your walls and doors once more with a
feather duster and wash off any finger
marks with warm-soap suds. Then cloee
the windows, washing tbem if necessary, or
else dusting with a soft cloth.
Frightening the Uttle Ones.
[Babyhood.]
With painful frequency we hear of cruel
"practical jokes" perpetrated upon little
children. Again and again comes to us the
old story of a child frightened into convulsions by a play-fellow who "only wanted to
have a little fun." One would think that
incidents like this had been enacted and told
with ghastly iteration often enough from
generation to generation to warn off the
most incorrigible fun-lovers and fools from
the perilous ground.
The progress of the witless plot ls generally tbe same up to a certain point There
is neither originality nor variety in the favorite mode of execution. It sounds trite in
the telling. A figure wrapped In the con-
veational sheet, lurking in a dark corner; a
spring upon the unsuspecting Tictftn, selected because he is the most timorous or
delicate of the family or school; dismay,
shrieks of anguish blent with goblin laughter
—then a difference in the ending. Some
times no apparent harm ts done, unless that
one child is made more timid, another more
cruel. Again, the nervous system is unbalanced so far that a swoon, or, as In the case
before us, convulsions ensue. Once in a
while the innocent subject of the practical
Joke pays for his tormentor's prank with
his reason or his life.
In a less flagrant manner incalculable mischief is done in many nurseries by tales of
ghosts, bogies, the black man who comes
down tho chimney to catch children who
will not go to sleep quietly, etc. That
mother is culpable who, when sh* finds ber
child unduly timid does not watch for indications that the nervous organism of her
oTsprlng has been tampered with, and who,
Bhould her suspicion, be confirmed, does, not
follow the clew to Its source and banish th*
criminal from her household.

[Exchauge.*
The decorative instinct is a happy faculty;
but unless it be intelligently cultivated it is
apt to produce peculiar results. Recently
driving by a beautiful country place, I was
delighted by the picturesque sweep of well-
kept lawns aud tbe beauty of trees and
shrub,. Indeed, all that; landscape gardening could do was manifest in the arrangement of the grounds. A rippling brook was
spanned by charming rustic bridge* covered
with vines and provided with Inviting teats
where one could read to the flowing accompaniment of the murmuring water.
While tho doligbt of all thi* rural beauty
was at its height, the apparition of a terracotta fawn incongruously lying upon a granite column, and a terra cotta hare erect ou
itshaunche-, close to the carriage road,
acted as effective disenchanters. It is easy
to imagine the sudden shock such unnatural
and inharmonious adjuncts are apt to produce upon the mind. Bad the fawn been
placed on the grass near tbe shrub*, and th*
hare partly screened by the broad leaves of
tbe foliage plants, there would have been a
verisimilitude that would have been plaaiing.

VICTORIA'S AWAKENING.
Victoriu appears to he at last fully
awake to the fact that if she is to hold
her own in the race with Vancouver, shiniest put forth all her dormant energies.
Ileyon.l all question lhe Capital, like her
smaller sisters of New Westminster anal
Nnnaimo has, if to a less extent, heen
playing the part of Rip Van Winkle.
Judging trom the tone oi the spcikers at
the meeting held last Tbursduy to discuss
lhe building of a railway to connect with
New Westminster, she (Victoria) like
Rip has at last woke up. By tlie decision
ol the Board of Aldermen to suhmit no
fewer than four loan by-laws to the ratepayers with an aggregate ot f 170,000, we
are led to infer thnt the awakening has
at last come with a vengeance. A H">,-
000 loan was voted three weeks ago,
which makes the very respectable sum of $215,000 to he
borrowed in one year, that is supposing
the ratepayers accede to the wishes of
the Aldermen. New Westminster, too,
shows unmistakable signs of fully recognizing the fact that she must bestir herself unless she would see herself hopelessly distanced by younger competitors.
Nanaimo alone, is apparently content to
do in the future as she has done in tlie
past, acting apparently on the principle
that what was good enough twenty years
ago should be good enough to-day. There
can UGt be one result of such apathy on
the part of our ratepayers. Doubtless,
with our splendid twin-harbours, and
magnificent coal-fields, our city
will, in spite of her do-nothing
policy, still continue lo flourish
in n mild sort of a fashion.
That she is being fast out-distanced by
her competitors all except the most inveterate stay-at-homes must see as plainly as they see the nose on their faces.
It is not a pleasant mlmission to make,
especially ns it lays us open to the imputation—by the near-sighted and the ignorant—-of crying "stinking fish." Nevertheless we arc firmly convinced that in
the near future those very people who
have done their utmost to prevent our
citizens from taking advantage of tbe
loan bye-laws will bitterly repent in Sackcloth and ashes.
NF. WSP. t PER . IMENITIES.
Literature is so entirely out of fashion
that it is really difficult to get up a spirit'
ed rally between critics and authors.
Hardly anyone attacks anybody, and
even if people are assailed, they have acquired n me<in habit ot taking no notice,
than which nothing can be more insolent
nml provoking. The modem critic, as a
rule, contents himself with a precis of the
author's preface, and then he leaves bim
with a jolly, unaffected indifference to his
topic, his hook, his style, and everything
that is his. But the modem Newspaper
Editor is another man. He can still
slash, and still cry''Yah'." that is if he
has the good fortune to reside in British
Columbia He docs not take it "lying
down," as Colonel Quagg recommended
the young, btttathletic, missionary to do.
He takes -it lighting. In this combat with
the pen; perhaps, the calm eye of the
philosopher will almost invariably detect
faults on both sides. We have frequently
wondered why, when one newspaper
attacks a rival, the attacked does not
take refuge in silence. While Author or
Editor is silent, he occupies a position
like tbat of the Scotch on the hill above
the Tilt. It is when, from hiB mountain
height, tho Author comes rushing, like
tbe Northern host, to meet his adversaries on the level plain of the newspapers,
he exposes himself needlessly to the
chance of defeat. When a cross-fire of
articles or letters has been exchanged, it
seems umlignified (or one of the belligerents to say we won't "play any more."
And yet we think that either poet,
novelist, or newspaper writer when
smitten, would study their own comfort
and profit by "suffering and being
strong." Did Lord Tennyson call heaven
and earth and the Styx, the direst oath
ot the immortal GodB, to witness, that he
will write no more Promises of Mail or
Queen Marys! Vet, doubtless, he has
been tempted, though unlike the many
smaller try in the shape of editors playwrights and book-makers generally, he
has not yielded, to thc temptation to
descend from the cold heights and crystal
crown of silence. These didactic remarks
will probably do nobody much good ; for
this is the manner of all sermons—
whether they be addressed to critics,
authors, or only miserable sinners.
i ere instruction would  hare  done any
' good.    As our readers  will remember it
was reported some time ago lhat  Bun.
Pass ■ ami Mr. Stasi.kv had fallen  into
the paiwer oi lliese Dervishes.   Tlie troth
oi such report was sustained by no evi-
aiena'e questionable or uni-ua'stionalilc.   lt
; is strange, however,  that, in a country
! where rumor travels fast, anal where, rc-
j mote as its centre is, rumor can travel by
I some half dozen channels—nothing like
premonitory warnings should have been
heard, but, ou the  contrary,  constant
bruits as to the triumph oi the  "White
Pasha."      To    come    down     to     a
later    phase   of    lhe   Egyptian   question,   a    telegram   reached   us    some
two weeks ago, in whicli  it  was stated
that a repoit had reached Zanzibar tbat
both   K'UN   Pasha   and   Mit.   Stasi.kv
were Bale, and were then on their way
to the Coast, preparatory to starting for
Europe,     Since   that   time   no further
news  has  reached  us concerning the
whereabouts of the  intrepid explorers.
which fact tends a shade of possibility to
the rumour that Emin and Stasi.i-y arc
yet iu the hands of thc Arah-ne;i'oes,
some portion of whom are giving so
much trouble in Lower Egypt al present.
If the rumour Should be true, the operations of Egyptian ami English troops
would lie Infinitely more necessary than
before; (or it means not only that the
conquering State which Mr. (ii.Aiisr.i.vK
has allowed to grow up in the centre of
North Africa is securely seated on the
Nile,ami tending as we know,victoriously towards the Niger, but that it has
overcome the last serious obstacle whieh
lay between it and, if not the Congo,
tbe great lakes oi the Equator.

Among the telegrams which appeared
in yesterday's issue oi the Coubieb, was
one which told of the formation of a
"Parnell's Tenant's Defence League,"
which is expected to sup].litnl the National League itself, and  is to be organized I Siricily ""trst-Clan,
upon a plan which PaKM-i.i. and   P'vrn|        Convenient te Railway Station anal Steam-

ment is referred to by a portion o( thei       streets. Vancouver, b. c.
Irish press as a strike against the pay-1
ment of rent by the whole nation; whilst
thc Pall Mall Gazelle whieh though ultraradical in its views, is yet marked by the I
extreme ability of ils articles, expresses
the opinion that this ''will prove the final
phase of the long struggle between the
Irish tenantry and their landlords." The
oft-repeated reports of what Irish peas- j 	
ants and their leaders are, or are not | TO TAKE EFPECT AT liso A. M.|,ON SAT-
going to do, does not, we imagine, have
much vital interest for any very considerable section of British Columbia and yet
the present agitation In Ireland, like
Nihilism in Russia, and Socialism in
Germany and France, has become historical, and as such should be of the
deepest interest to students of history.
Our comparison of the Irish Land
Leaguer to lhe Russian Nihilist is we
grant hardly fair to the latter. In so far,
perhaps as the intrinsic merit of I be
question goes, we may not be
able to get up much excitement
on either subject. To sympathize
with the Nihilists is quito impossible.
Tbey bave, indeed, the immense advantage over tbeir nearest analogues—Ibe
men of action of the Nationalist party—
tbat their proceedings are neither marked by cowardice nor actuated by greed.
Whereas tlie Nationalists' chief joy is to
attack somebody defenceless, the Nihilist
always makes straight for the throat of
his most alangeroits enemy ; and whereas
the Nationalist aims at land-rent free,
the suppression of his trade-rivals, the
obtaining of so many hundreds a year as
member ol" Parliament, or'the gathering
in of a huge testimonial, if be be very
lucky, thc Nihilist, as far as can lie
seen, has no selfish aims whatever. But,
if he is brave and unselfish, ha lias no
intelligible political principles, and his
methods of warfare are as culpable as
those oi the Clan-na-Gael orof Ma. Euan,
the American Minister to Chili. On the
other band, to sympathize wholly with
tlie Russifi Government is almost equally difficult to any kind of consistent poli-
ticiam. To say, "Fight dog, fight bear,"
however, is as imprudent as improper,
for Russia's neighbours at any rate.
Nihilist excesses have invariably a direct
and fatal influence on European peace.
It is during tbeir lute temporary suspension that Ktissia has assumed the most
" well-behaved" attitude that she has
taken up since the Franco-German War,
and tbe " pusillanimity, the neglect, or
the simple ignorance of Mr. GLADSTONE
took the Crimean muzzle off her, eighteen years ago."

THE WAR IN LOWER EGYPT.
The telegraphic details of the lighting
in Lower Egypt yesterday are necessarily scanty, but what appears to be the
complete and well-managed victory which
the F.gyptinn troops and their English
officers have obtained over the Dervishes
should relieve the apprehensions of the
timorous and testifies to good morale in
the black troops—at least when they are
led and backed liy Englishmen. The
absolute necessity of giving a lesson to
tbe Dervishes was^clear ta every one who
has kept himself at(-/at'( with thc course
of Great Britain's foreign policy. The
Dervishes appear to bave suffered somewhat severely in the action whieh has
just taken place, and though we may regret the amount of bloodshed, it may,

From Symes A Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sin—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindostan, but all over
the East. As a remedy of 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 baiaars, and judging from their sale!
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. We could multiply instances
infinitum of the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Nfiralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
ass general Sedative, that have oeearred
und^i 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 fotm 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 anal the public, as wc ire of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
Or THE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We arc sir
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellency the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION.—Vice-Cnanccllor Sir W.

Mr. Wall has lived many years in Wellington and his hearty laugh and well-

mew Westminster "Woollen Mill.
It woulil appear that tlie Westminster
Woollen Mill people have complied with
the condition so far as to be entitled to
the bonus offered for the lirst woollen mill in operation in the province. The wisdom oi the Government in so offering a bonus must bo
apparent to all, as without such a stimulus it is more than doubtful if we should
yet have a factory of this kind. Already
its beneficial effects have bee:i felt, inasmuch as wool-growers have at last got a
local market instead of as heretofore being obliged to sell their wool tor just so
much as jobbers chose to give.

other country, insure ils preservation.
Besides the early history connected with
the Bastion it marks the initial point
from which surveys were alated, and on
the old plans of the District every place
was cptoted as so many miles from it; for
instance the Electoral District of Nanaimo is twelve miles cither way from lhe
flag staff. This special distance was made
SO as to Include Nanoose Bay. The old
building is rapidly fulling into decay despite the endeavors of Constable Stewart
to preserve its air of respectability, and
it active measures be not speedily token
Nanainio will lose one of her most notable landmarks. Now that the portholes
no longei, when open, alisa'lose the
mouths of the Hudson ilay Company's
cannon, youngsters play in it and diigs
make it thei.t winter quarters, and rumour has it that it is frequently put to
much less respectable use even than that.
The reason why the Bastion is neglected,
we are told, i.s that it Stands partly On private propertyand partly on the road. If
that lie tbe case then there is not much
hope that we can long retain our relic of
bye-gone days, but let us keep it as long
as we can.
We have another object of interest,
vi/.., a pyramid, marked with a Broad
Arrow, by which the ships in tlie olden
times used to correct Iheir compasses,
but this was displaced during some late
excavations for lhe purpose of laying
water pipes.

,Mr. M. E. (ioldstein, a well-known
Theatrical Manager of ihe Pacific
Coast, arrived yesterday, and brings
the far-famed Chicago 'Comedy Com-
panv, for live nights, commencing
Tuesday, July 10th. The policy of the
Manager of the Chicago Comedy Company is to make a long stay aud give thc
people of every city the benefit of popular prices. Owing to the smallness of
the audiences the prices will be :!(l cents
admission and 60 cents for reserved seats,
which is one-half the regular prices. Fol-
lowing is nn extract of the Press:
The Diamond Mystery was produced
by the Chicago Comedy Company, at the
Opera House lust evening to the largest
audience ever known in the history of
Albany. Besides the regular large sealing capacity over 160 extra chairs were
brought ill reserve, and standing room
being at a premium. The play produced
nave the best satisfaction of any company that has ever visited this city. The
company is first class, many peoplo could
hardly believo that such a great performance "could be given at such popular
prices,  and   without   a  doubt thev will
ii-iter i..r hi- exertions,   ihs advu-e to *,]fty t0 crowded houses during the entire
youthful prospectors is, get $20 together
and start n cigar and peanut stand in preference tohuutinggnld in tbehlUs. Major
Downie is one of lhe hest known men on
the Pacific coast and has given liis name
to creeks and mining camps, but does not
seem lo have benefitted by it much.
During the last few winters he lias spent
his time as a book agent and many an
old gold mining friend has tendered him
a hearty welcome during his peregrinations.
Major Downie will pay a visit to his
daughters' home and then may return to
look up liis friends in Nanaimo. lie
thinks lie has done witli prospecting.
Wherever the Major may pitch his lent
he will always retain a warm corner in
the hearts of Nanaimonns.

Spring salmon put on an exlra spurl

enough lo be using spring nels. The
soekeye have not increased above yesterday's catch. The river was dotted
last night with fishing boats, and cries of
the Indian fishermen, calling the lish, as
is Iheir custom, were heard echoing back

noise drive the lish away, but the noble
