London, Aug. II.—The match between
the Philadelphia cricketers and the Cambridge team began yesterday und was
continued to-day. The home team completed tlieir lirst innings for 151.
The agitation, which hits been carried on
for some time against Iho system of competitive examinations for places in lhe
Civil [Service, promises now to Iwar
fruit. Lord Wemyss, who long ago look
a lirm stand in opposition to the whole
system, announces his intention to move
for the appointment of a Royal Commission to inquire into the stuject. This
commission is to be authorized to investigate the workings ot the system in other
countries where it is in force, and to obtain such statistics abroad bearing on the
subject as seem important. Lord Wemyss expects to secure the apppoint-
ment of such a commission beforo the
prorogation of Parliament so that it may
begin its work at once.
An interview, published this afternoon
witli the Foreman of the jury which
CONVICTED    MRS.     MAYBRICK,
not only justifies the popular
indignational at tlie verdict, but
can't fail to have a tendency
to bring over those who, up to this time,
have been disposed to approve of it. The
foreman exhibited the most astounding
Btupldity, bis comments on the evidence
and its influence on his own mind and
those of his fellow jurors amounting to
idiocy. Such an utter failure to grasp
salient points, either on one side or the
oilier, could scarcely be credited oi a mnn
witli any claim to common sense. Since

BOlT.ANUEIl's  TRIAL.
Paris, Aug. 9.—TheProcureur-General,
continuing his arraignment ol General
Boulanger before the high court of impeachment to-day, maale the charge that
Boulanger held a veritable political court
at Clement-Feirnnd, lhat he organized
secret intrigues; that during the electoral agitation he hud a system of corresponding officials; Hint lie wrote lo the
war office disclaiming nny personal connection wilb what had been done in his
name. The Procureur was here interrupted hy vigorous protests from senators
ofthe right against lhe severity of his
language, hut he wns still more severe
wlien allowed in proceed, Documents
before the court, he snid, marked Boulanger's downwind path from insubordination to Intrigue, falsehood, and con-
■"piracy. The evidence showed thnt, Bon-

Vienna, Aug. 9.—Austria has sent a
reply to the Greek note on the subject of
Cretan disturbances. The reply very
frankly admits the difficulties aif tbe situation in Crete, and tbe influence of the
condition of affairs there upon the Greek
people, but decidedly objects to act un the
proposition of Greece. The reply points
out that any action on the part of the
powerB at this time could only result in

Yesterday a canoe load of Siwashes,
three men and two klootchmen, landed ut
a point below Departure Bay, having
pussed through a very rough experience,
ft seems these IndiuiiBhad leftAlert Bay,
or some more northern cannery station,
with the intention of coming to" Nanaimo
to spend what money they hail earned
during the lishing ' season, and while
passing down lhe const with all sail Bet,
were struck hv a sudden squall that carried away masts und sails, throwing the
canoe over onto her side and precipitating the occupants and baggage into the
water. At the time of the accident they
were about u mile from shore and things
! looked desperute, as after several ineffec-
i tual attempts to eul away the musts and
sails, one of the klootchmen began to
show signs of sinking bill wub finally
placed in safety on tlie bottom of the
canoe. After drifting for about four hours
the canoe neared land and the Siwashes
swam in towards it, pushing the craft,
and finally landed in safety, minus every-
tliing, rilleE, ammunition and provisions.
Near where tbey lauded there was,
luckily, a bush fire, at which they
managed to dry themselves and then,
having fixeil up the canoe as well as possible, renewed their journey down the
(iulf, landing at Cape Mudge about a
week ago, after which they started for
here. The Siwash interviewed on the
subject, with the aid of Mr. Raper's
Chinook dictionary, waB very reticent
Rbout the affair, and persisted in remarking that there was no whiskey aboard at
tbe time of the accident, which, on the
principle of qui s'e.ecuse s'accuse tells its
own tale.

having the best interests of the cily at
heart), ft I promptly in  this branch railway matter,   They could, with hul small
expense to tlie  municipality,   gran!   the
company   a   free   right   of way   fur the
rond within the city limits, thus materially enhancing the value of all other classes
nf property ; nr, if necessary, they could
grant the company a few thousand dollars to assist in the erection of lhe
necessary additional wharves. In a
matter of this kind we have net lhe least
hesitation in asserting thai the ratepayers would endorse tlieir action, and
would be only too glad of the chance lo
do so.
The Board of Trade, too. composed of
our leading and most influential hasiness
men, should take the matter up. and use
their influence, both individually and
collectively, to have this question settled
satisfactorily for the city of Nanaimo.
They arc the ones musl deeply
interested, and if tbey do not
try to help themselves, who tin flier suppose will do it fos them?
Our venerable friend ut, the street makes
the statement that "The point raised
that the money earned by the employes
at the Noi'thlield mine would lie diverted
from this city lo Departure Hay, is, to
use the very mildest term, erroneous."
We do not think that tbe erroneousness
uf this statement a'un be substantiated.
The Vancouver Goal Company does not
alesire a monopoly in the matter of providing accommodation for their employes,
as does the Wellington Company, hence
Ihey would dispose of land in Hie vicinity
ol the mine and numerous hotels and
lodging houses would sprint; into existence on short notice, and the employes
wonl.l have no occasion to come to lown
oltener (ban once a month, if then.
Stores would lie erected, saloons would
be opened, and their whole needs would
be provided foi, independent of Nanaimo. The fact that the company owns s
very large amount of land within lbs
city limits, and the Insinuation that they
must of necessity bring the road here to
enhance the value of that land, has no
material hearing upon the case whatever.
They owu land 'many thousands of
acres) in all parts of the neighborhood,
which is principally valuable to them for
the coal deposils which it contains. This
policy of sitting lazily down and expecting someone else to pour golden dollars
into your lap, as advocated by the Free <
Press, in a very short-sighted one in-,
deed, and one which, if persisted in, will
leave Nanaimo stranded high snd dry;
upon tlieroa'ksof adversity, "ilod helps j
those who help themselves." aid we he-]
lieve in taking the hull by the horns snd
helping those who would help us.
"The actual bcnelit to be derived by
Nanainio from Ibe bare fact of Ihe coal1
heing carried through the eity to bej
shipped at our city front as compared lo ]
Departure Bay would uot be very great." !
This is another assertion characteristic of j
our twilight friend. Hoes he not realizs

Threo funny fox chas-**-* aro reported from
different localities in this county. At Landis
valley a fox had been started and thirty-five
hounds ami a half dozen cross county riders
wero in lively pursuit. Thu trail lei 1 among
the fields and over tho bills for several miles,
and then took the bounds to tho turnpike.
There, In tho middlo of tho pike, the scent '
was lost. Tho dogs maneuvered and beat
about here, thero and everywhere, but the
trail could not bo found. A teamster on bis i
way to town with a load of hay had passed
tho spot where thc trail was lost iu the pike
only a minute beforo tho bounds burst on the
road in full cry. The teamster stopped on
seeing the pack and tho riders following
them, to watch tho result of tho maneuvering.
"Which way did bo go?'' shouted ouo of
the hunters.
"Dunnoi" tho teamster Shouted back.
"Didn't seo him."
After watching tho dog and tho hunters for
a fow minutes the teamster wont on. The
hunters unanimously declared that thero had
never beforo been such an inexplicable loss of
a fox's trail, and bad to givo up tho chase.
After going a mile or so, ns bo tells tho story,
tho teamster with tho hay stopped his horsoB
to talk with un acquaintance ho met on tho
road, and as they wem talking a fox jumped
out of tho hay at tho rear end, landed in tho
road, and trotted leisurely away to cover.
"Well, I'll bo jiggered I"' said the teamster,
and told hia friend about tho way tho hunters
had lost tho trail a mile. back. Thoy both
concluded that the only explanation of it was
that tho fox had jumped into tho road just
behind tho load of hay as it was passing, and,
being a cunning old customer, had jumped on
tho bay nud burrowed into it out of sight bo-
foro tho dogs camo up iii full cry. Ho had
doubtless enjoyed the discomfiture of both
hounds nnd hunters, as it wus revealed to him
by tho short parley with the teamster, and
wheu tho wagon stopped a milo away from
tho last trail bo had thought that a good opportunity to leave his hiding place aud had
dono so.
AtFairvilloapartyof hunters, with a largo
pack of hounds, wero led a long and circuitous chase by a fox, and at last tho trail. took
them to Farmer Edward Hal lor *s garden.
Thero tho scent was lost and could not bo recovered. Tho chase was abandoned. An
hour later Mi*. Haller was looking out of a
back window and was surprised to see tho
fox jump out of a big Dutch oven in tho garden, tho door of which is four feet from the
ground, and hurry away to his uativo hills.
During another chnso in Landis valley tho
fox led tho hunters and dogs a long chaso
over a hard country nnd then struck for tho
Lititz pike, above Kell'sville. Tho trail followed tho pike a long distauco and theu took
to tho fields again. Tho chaso lasted until
lato in tho afternoon, when tho fox throw tho
hunters off tho scent. Toward night tho fox's
hiding place was discovered by accident. It
had entered a farm yard near Kissel hill and
taken refugo iu iho kennel of ouo of tho very
hounds thnt wero in the chase,—Lancaster

FEATS   OF   MEMORY.
Cardinal Mazzofanti, the linguist, who Is
wild to have known a hundred languages.
declared that he never forgot a word ho bud
onco learned.
An English clergyman mentions a man who
could remember the day of tho burial of
every person who bad died in the parish dining thirty-five years, and could also repeat
tba name and age of each deceased person
and the names of the mourners at his fu
nernl. But so weak was ho Intellectually
that be could not be trusted to feed himself.
To a friend who congratulated Leyden on
his remurkablo memory be replied that be
often found lt a source of great i.iconveul
ence. On the friend expressing surprise be
explained that he bad often wished to recollect a particular expression in something be
had read, but could uot do it until he hod
repeated the whole passage from the begin
ning to the expression be desired to recall.
Dr. Moffat, tbe distinguished African mis
slonary, and tbe father-in-law of Dr. Living
stono, onco preached a long sermon to a
crowd of negroes. Shortly after be hud fin
Ished he taw a number of negroes gather
about a simple.minded young Ravage. He
went to them and discovered thut tbe savage

-only was be reproducing tho precise words,
but imitating the imuiuer and gesture of the
white preacher.
Waxed Taper BogS-
A now nrticlo called "tho Sparks'waxed
paper bag" is now being extensively introduced, and is noticeable for its novel qualities. The exterior Is like any paper bag, but
tho interior surface is lined with a thin film
of lino purufllno wax, which renders tho b.ig
substantially air tight ami water proof. Tho
cost is but a trifle more than tho common
paper bag.
Tobacco, snuff, cigars, etc., put up in theso
hugs aro preserved in perfect condition, drying nud loss of aroma being prevented. In
liko manner confectionery, fruit and other
eatables are kept intact, wholesome and
fresh. As theso bugs may bo mado translucent they render tho package attractive,
antl this adds a desirable selling quality, independent of other merits. Druggists use
them for enveloping all kinds of preparations; grocers find them very desirable in
preserving iu fresh condition coffee, tea, dried
beef, hams, cheese, sugar and other foods.
Tho difference   between two packages of
coffee, one put up in tbo ordinary paper bug
and tho other in a Sparks' waxed paper bug,
is vory striking.   A pound of coffee in ordinary paper, when brought into a room or
j cur, is scented by everybody at once; but if
' tho waxed paper bag is used tho contents can-
1 not bo detected; thero is no escape of aroma,
| tho preservation is complete.   Theso wnxed
1 paper bags aro also found to bo of superior
: value for wheat, flour, buckwheat, oatmeal,
j Indian  meal,   etc.   Tho  contents nro kept
j fresh, and access of moisture or other contamination  is prevented.    For packing co*
I ment,   fertilizers,  etc.,   tho   bags  aro  also
! useful.

quantity of camphor or othor insocticido aro

Only Ono Candidate.
Tho practice of "lobbying" sometimes
arises from tho most iunocontof motives, ond
Is carried on by persons whom ono would n-sver
Biispect of doing it. A class of littlo girls in
a certain primary school had resolved to
form themselves into n secret society, and accordingly planned a meeting for tho olection
nf officers.
Ono child, who had always been deservedly
popular, wont about at recess saying to ono
and another, "Now remember, Susio Joy
will mako a nico vico president, and Nellia
Smart must bo treasurer.'
Her classmates quito agreed with ber, and
no comment wns made until another little
girl, a newcomer, who was uot accustomed
to tho leadership of this young lobbyist, bethought herself to ask:
"But who will bo president!"
Tho small wire puller patised and looked at
her with astonishment. Then sho said, in a
genuinely aggrieved tone: "Why, I thought

THK ORIGINAL and ONLV GENUINE
Avlvice *.o invalids—If yuu W-fitl to obtain
quiet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
relief from pain and anguish, lo calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous media, and
regulate thc circulating systems of the body,
you will provide yourself with tnat marvellous remedy discovered by Dr. J. Collis
Browne (late Army Medical Staff), to which
he gave the name of CHLORODVNE, and
which is admitted by the profession to be the
mosl wonderful and valuable- remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the best remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma.
CHLORODYNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhoea, and is the only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
CHLORODYNE effectually cuts short all
attacks of Epilepsy, Hysteria, Palpitation
and Spasms.
CHLORODYNEisthconly palliative in
Neuralgia, Rheumatism, Gout, Cancer,
Toothache, Meningitis, 8tt , &c.
From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutical
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
1880: To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Greal
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir:*—We embrace this opportunity of congratulating you upon the wide-spread reputation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis ..rowne's Chlorodyne, has earned lot
itself, not unly in Hindostan, but all uvet
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, anil we shall be
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy to say, arc uow relegated to tlie
native bazanrs, anil judging from their satel
wc fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. Wc could multiply Instance!
infinitum uf the extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhu-,
and 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Crampa
N-'uralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
a*.. general Sedative, lhat have Oouurred
undwf our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhiea, and even il
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, wc
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used -.ny other foim of this
medicine than Colli! Browne's, front a firm
conviction that it is decidedly lhe best, and
also from a sense of duty we owe to the projj
fession and the public, as we ™e ofthe
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERATE
BREACH OK FAITH ON THE PART
OFTHE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
the Pharm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.
CAUTION. —Vice-Cnancellor Sir W.
Page Wood staled that Dr. J, Collis Browne
was, undoubtedly, the inventor ul Chlorodyne; that the story of the defendant, Fret
man, was deliberately untrue, wbich, he
regretted lo say, had been sworn to —See

Munla}' School Picnic.
Yesterday afternoon the Sunday school
teachers of the Presbyterian church and
their friends, lo the number of folly, hail
a very enjoyable picnic  on   Protection
island. The weather was all lhat could
be desired for such recreation, and the
water in the bay not even rallied by a
breeze which allowed the male portion of
the picnic to exercise its muscles with
the sculls while conveying the parly to
and from the Island.

Let us lake a travel in imagination,
over Vancouver Kast. We had down at
the southern extremity ths famous San!
Juan river, along which and its neighbor j
Leech river, some real good paying dig- |
gings have been found. Up to the head-1
waters thereof we find the suow-white i
peaks of the Seymour range girting the
southern shores of the great Cowichan
lake, while lhe Kennedy range parallels]
on the northern shores.     The  giants of j
these ranges mav be classed as rearing |
their heads from 3,000 to 4,000 feet high,
while to the north-west Mounts Battle,
Spence, Powell, Douglas, and Arrow-
smith lower up about 0,000 feet, and the
composition through the entire route we
have gone over is volcanic and auriferous
formations. Now. if gold exists at Mount
Laser and also at or iu near proximity to Mounts Hawkin anal Douglass,
and at intermediate points, we
naturally decide that the metalliferous
rocks continue through lhe whole route,
and if our Provincial Government would
only open up some few bridle trails from
thc east coast back, say :i0 miles, this
vast area of land would be thoroughly
prospected within the next few years—
the expense of such trails would onlv bo
a mite compared to the valuable agricultural land they would open up. with the
highly favorable chances of some of our
mineral wealth being developed and it is
a lamentable fact tha! our Lands and
Works Department can not supply any
practical or reliable information respecting the country, ils formation capabilities, Ac., 20 miles due west from the
Capital. Surely we are a remarkable
people, with such undeniable lads existing. Lei our sturdy prospectors try these
ranges. Give them the means of "getting there Ell," and Vancouver Island
will reap a golden harvest for the miserly
outlay requisite. And to owners of prospects bear in mind thai the lime is pasl
when claims can be sold ou the strength
of assays from surface croppings—this
has been repeated so frequently that
it is not necessary, one would think, yet i
it is necessary ; new blood darts off to our i
mines, and led away by the first Bights

ty as well as quality of the .ire it eon- j
tains—need not go a-begging for a pur- j
chaser—practical men will pay fifty or a
hundred thousand dollars for a mine fairly developed by a shaft or drift on the
ledge—when the same parties would refuse to waste ii thousand dollars rn rich j
surface rock. Our prospectors musl 'earn !
that it is necessary in sink and demonstrate its value and permanency. A
lecation for exhibit, a set of omarer'a
vouchers, and enough work to fulfill
legal requirements and then wait, for Ihe
coming man to buy them out. That is
too slim. Practically men are too wise
to plaa'o their nionev on such uncertainties—yet sometimes a purchase is made
of property of this kind—and it never
brings mo're than a trifip ef its real
value if it is the outcrop of a good ledge,
and the buyer sinks and proves f or good
the genuineness of the vein, and proves
that lhe original owner by a little development work bad property worth twenty
times as much as he sold for. li would
be well if our hardy prospector, would
see al an early date that there is a large
amount of capital looking for mines,
hut a very very little looking for mere
prospect Holes.
