Ibe "iewerage <lua stion.
bia,—-A suggestion  contained in  an
! article, under the heading ' 'The Sewer-
j age Question," in yesterday's issue, has
—  . . j caused me a certain amount of alarm,
l J ITV   t    K| *~~~| ft *~3 I ITI O ! 'er vvere "le citizens to put pressure on

' they would almost certainly render endemic those diseases the existenceof which
baa been definitely proved to be due to
defective sewerage.
In the first place, thc Inlet is not a fit
place to serve as the receptacle of sewage, for the shore would be
covered witb most offensive depoBits.aud
the motion ol steamers, or the ebb ol the
tide would result in the most pestilential
odours, which would throw the present
state of thc mud of the Inlet into the
shade -, and iu the second place a wooden
box drain, though (aa the article says-
the expense would be trifling, would be
trifting with the health of Nanaimo's
citizens. As you have frankly confessed
that you "do not wish to pose as sanitary
engineers," perhaps you will not take it
amiss, if I inform you that only ini-

have arisen from, porous pipes and imperfect joints. If Nanainio desires a
thorough system of sewerage (few, I
think will deny the necessity) the Aldermen must be prepared to make a great
outlay, one far greater probably, than
the citizens will entertain. To drain an
English town of the same population
would involve the expenditure most
likely of £50,000 to carry out precisely
the same system here, it would require
four or five times that sum, as tlie acreage of Nanaimo is far greater than that
of an English town of the same population, labor is dearer, and proper drain
pipes would have to be imported, freight
and duty materially augmenting first
cost. A tolerably cheap and satisfactory
Bystem would be in the adoption ot the
dry earth system, and in an oflicient
method of scavenging at stated short intervals. The cost could be met either by
levying a per capita rate on the occupier
of every house within tbe city limits, or
by the scavenger charging a fixed sum
for every removal.
How the material might be turned to
profitable account I will with your permission, show on some future' occasion,
for at the present I am afraid 1 bave trespassed too much on your columns.
I am, sir,

The Editor Coubikb:—Km,—Permit
me a lew lines in your paper to draw attention to the very short notice given by
tbe hospital management as to their intention to call a meeting for the election
(or re-election, to be accurate) of officers.
If I am well-informed, tbe gentlemen
comprising tbe committee have the control oi considerable iunds contributed by
the government and from private sources,
so they would regard their own interests
more by allowing a decent interval to
elapse between the summoning and holding of an important meeting of this character.
Under the circumstances, it is hardly
surprising that there should be continual
dissatisfaction as to Ihe manner in which
contract) are awarded and the general
conduct oi the business oi the institution.
There appears to be some concerted
action to keep the affairs of our hospital
in the hands of a certain few, for what
reasons I leave it to tbe public to draw
their conclusions.   Yours Ac,

1  DISUAI.  FAILURE.
Pittsburgh, Pa., July 10.—To-day was
tbe time fixed by Carnegie, PhippB A Co.
to start up their works at the Homestead
under the terms of the firm's wage scale.
The attempt proved a dismal failure. On
the other hand, 500 or so men emploved
about tbe works making repairs and
cleaning up, preparatory to the resumption, left the mill this morning and joined tbe ranks of the strikers, leaving but
three men at work. No new men were
sent to the Homestead to-day, and except for a large number of idle men on
the Homestead everything is quiet.
Sheriff McCandless and a deputy viBited
the general offices of the Company at
noon and held a consultation with tbe
Manager. What plans are made out is
not yet kuown. It is stated to-day that
should the Company attempt to put nonunion men to work in the places of tbe
Homestead strikers all of thc Carnegie
mills in this vicinity will close down immediately. Prominent iron masters predict that this is the beginning of one of
the greatest wage contests ever known in
this country. They also sav that a submission to the terms of the proposed
scale ou the part of the workmen meanB
adoption of the same terms in every mill
in the country.
A ROW IN TBE TENSION OFFICE.
Washington, July 10.—Much interest
has developed hero to-day over the
rumor that serious trouble has arisen between pension commissioner Tanner and
Secretary Noble, and that the resignation
oi the former is not improbable. These
rumors are tbe outcome oi a conference
held late yesterday afternoon in the
office of Secretary Noble, at which the
Secretary, Assistant Secretary Bussey
and Commissioner Tanner were present.
General BuBsey says that matters pertaining to the conduct of the pension
office were considered during the conference, as some things had occurred
in the conduct of that vast department
which were not entirely satisfactory-'
The matter of Tanner's resignation, he
said, was not mentioned last evening.
Whether there waB any truth in the
rumor tliat his resignation had been requested, General Bussey could not say,
and for details on that point he referred
the reporter to Secretary Noble, wbo
could speak knowingly and authoritatively respecting the matter. Pension Commissioner Tanner treats the matter of his
reported resignation with jocularity. He
Bays he would not attempt to contradict
all newspaper reports circulated about
himself or his department.
A NOTEO WOMAN DEAD.
Richmond, Va., July 10.-MrB. Tyler,
widow of tbe lata John Tyler, of Virginia, ex-President oi the United States,
died in this city this afternoon at the

KII.RA1X  NOT DEAD AS REPORTED.
Chicago. July 10.—A telegram from
Dallas, Texas, this evening says the
rumor of Kilrain's death is entirely
without foundation, lt is positively
known here that Kilrain reached Mar-
sliall at one o'clock this morning and left
four bours later i-i'ti Littc Rock.
I'AI'.INET  MEEETINO.
Washington, July 10.—An extra ses-
i sion of the Cabinet was held this afternoon. It is believed that Commissioner
Tanner's administration of the Pension
Office affairs was the subject of discussion at tbe meeting.
CAKEI.ESS.NE8S THE  CAUSE.
Pittsburgh, July 10.—-A shifting engine
collided with the Burgettstown aecomo-
dation train east-bound at Nimick's Station on the Panhandle Railroad this
morning. Five cars of the passenger
train was thrown from the track, the
baggage car and two front coaches
going over the embankment. Several
persons were slightly injured and the
track badly blocked. The accident was
caused by tbe carelessness of the freight
crew.
SCHOONER  DESERTED.
Gloucester, Mass., July 10,-Tiie schr.
Golden Hind, from Grand Bank to-dav,

Georges, of St. Pierre, at anchor antl living signals of distress. Her captain reported tbat nil of his crew of eight men

missing men. They nil belonged to St.

The modes of death's approach arc various, and statistics show conclusively that
more persons die from diseases of the Throat
and Lungs than any other. It is probable
that everyone, without exception receives
vast numbers of Tubercle Germs into the
system and where these germs fall upon suitable soil they start into life and develop, at
first slowly and is shown by a slight tickling
sensation in the throat and if allowed to continue their ravages they extend to thc lungs
producing Consumption and to the head,
causing Catarrh. Now all is dangeroas, and
if allowed to proceed will in time cause
death. At the onset you must act with
promptness; allowing a cold to go without
attention is dangerous and may lose , . .1

Auburn, N. Y., July 10.—A telephone
special to the Despatch last night from
Johnstown, N. Y., says a terrible freshet
visited that placo between six and seven
o'clock last evening. At ,that time the
exact loss of lifo and property was not
known,but it is estimated more"than fifty
people were swallowed up in tho water,
and that many buildings were, wrecked
several totally destroyed. It began to
Btorm early yesterday morning and kept
up a steady downpour all day. Cayudetta
Creek, which had been fearfully swollen
from recent rains, became, with the additional water, a raging torrent, and
ruahed through the lower section of the
town. Johnstown contains about 8,000
inhabitants, and amonft its industries are
several large glove mills. Three large
dams block the stream at intervals, and
to these bodies of water is due the distressing accident. When tho first dam
gave way it waB a source of curiosity to
people, and to this fact is laid the loss of
life. About fifty people gathered on the
bridge to witness the rushing torrents,
when suddenly the structure became
loosened and sank into the seething
waters, carrying itB human freight with
it. The wreck of struggling humanity all

THE LATEST SCIENTIFIC INVENTION AS APPLIED TO COAST
DEFENCE.
Nowadays, when we read SO tnua-li in
ihe press of the I'nited staler relative lo
our Ksiiutmalt fortifications, we are astonished io Hnd how few of the general
public appear to have taken note of ihe
important stride in the science of coasl
defence that has been ao recently effected,
by lhe invention of the wonderful instru-
inenl known to those who make a study
of artillery mailers. a» the "position-
finder." There is, wo believe, a consensus of opinion among experts as to ila
value and rrtieieney, and il is pre-
-minciitly such isolated and thinly
peopled I'ouutries as Hritish Columbia,
which mutt feel the substantial addition
Ita Introduction has contributed to thei
forces at their command. Fortunately it|
is an English officer who lias perfected
this wonderful system, hence—in this
respeel ul least—we Hritish Columbians,
in common witb the rest of that 'Empire
on which the sun never sels," are ahead
of all other nations, lt seeina somewhat
surprising, Iberefore, that th* "pnsition-
linder" has not attracted so large a share
of public notice as its importance would
appear to warrant. This may lie owing
to the fact that in the ordinary lay mind,
this superb invention is a gooal deal eon-
fused with ihe ordinary "range-finder,"
and loses, on this airoum, the altraclioa
of novelty; besides it affects coast defence
chiefly, and ha." been understood and ap-
predated hitherto, by only the small
section of experts who would be ealled
upon to employ it. The assistance, bow
ever, which England and her Colonies
may expect lo gain by its adoption, is so
great, that our readers may pardon us if
we briefly draw attention to it. and
lightly touch upon its nature, without
attempting anything like a description in
detail:
''By position-liiuliug. is meanl » system by which one man, and he most
probably an expert, lakes command, as
it were, of a whole battery of guns from a
secure ami elevated position, more perhaps than a mile away, watches the object, finds the range, gives any deflection
that may be necessary, lays every gun,
fires tbem all at the same moment, and
accurately gauges their effect. This
"epitome of all mankind" is securely
placed away from all noise oranxiely, is
independent of any smoke, and has a full
and clear view of all tbat is going on ior
miles around. All this, and nothing
less, is accomplished by position-iinding,
and this is how it is done:
"Supposing a harbour or roadstead is
to be defended. Certain elevated sitet
are chosen, usually one on eaeh flank,
where a good view nol likely to be interfered with by the smoke of action can
be obtained of (be waters to be defended.
Here small observing-roomt are built,
perfectly protected or completely oul of
sight, whicli are in connexion, eaeh wilh
a couple of guns iu the fort below, not
only by ordinary electric telegraph, but
also by special electric connexion for
position-finding purposes. Near eaeh
group of guns is an electric dial in a
prominent position. These dials are
Worked bv electric keys in the observing
rooms, and exhibit the amount of training along lhe racers, and the degrees of
elevation to be given to the guns at any
given moment. Tbe guns are worked
and loaded liy the gun detachments in
lhe ordinary way, according to the appliances at hand, but in place of being
laid by a man lookinc over the sights, as
is usuallytthe ange, the required elevation is given to tbem by quadrant side
arcs, and direction by the graduated
racers on which they run, Ihe dial in
each case specifying tbe. exact number of
alegrees and minutes. They are then
connected up for electric tiring from
lhe observing rooms, and tbe duties
of the detachment are at an end. lt will
he observed that in thia manner the
work of the detiuhmeiit it purely
inechan°*,al, lhal '.he "personal error"
of tbe man who usually lays the gun, is
entirely obviaied. and lhat Ih* most
fruitful cause of bad shots is thu* eliminated altogether. Not one of the detachment need ever have Ureal a gun at a
large!, nor need any of them know
what they are firing at, or what is going
nn outside the iiiseaiate. If Ihe
smoke of action hang* heavily
around, it in no way interferes
with the efficiency of their fire, but
rather.enhances it since it renders Ihem
more secure from that of Iheir foe. They
are free from all responsibility, and
merely obey certain directions in much
the same way as the man at the wheel
takeB bis orders from the bridge. Meanwhile an observer in bis room, perhaps
far away and at any rate in perfect seiin-
ity, has singled out a vessel for attack,
and follows its movements with a telescope, fitted with crosa-wircs, and with a
rapid traversing and vertical movement.
Another observer ia watching a plan to
scale of the extent to be defended; and
two graduated arms are also moving
automatically with the telescope over tbe
chart. Their Intersection shows, on a
scale, the exact amount of quadrant elevation and training on the guu raceit
necessary to enable a projectile from the
group of guns below tn fall on the spot
on which at *ny given moment the telescope is directed. As the telescope follows the ship's course a pencil likewise
traces it automatically on the char!, and
a calculation can easily be made of where
ils position will be a minute or so ahead.
Tbe pencil poinl is advanced loibatspot.
the telesa'ope follows it automatically aud

Eton, il is commonly said, is now almost entirely filled with the sons of men
who send their boys tliere, mil because
they themselves have been I hero, not
even because tbey wish their boys to lie-

school where thc sons of a commoner
can make acquaintance with lords and

If Ihis is really bow thc oase stands at

Eton boys from one cause or another find
themselves one day obliged to face the
stern realities of every-day life and to put
their shoulders to the wheel in grim

of his English confreres as have received

for the British snob who drinks in reverence for rank and social prestige, with his

Anglo-maniacal snob of this continent is

to that whieh prevails among thc middle

an eye witness, iu fact
The recollections of one autumn week will
lost ine to my dying day. It waa one of
those calm, sunshiny day.-i, and I was numbered in company with a quartet of sport
loving young follows wbo went forth, eager
to scour the graud, boundless prairies in
search of the toothsome duck or hen, antelope, or, perhaps, a stray buffalo, whloh are
now very scarce.
THIIEE  DAYS  WITUOUT  WATCH.
We started out without taking tbe precaution of preparing for any emergencies whatever, as we placed explicit confidence in our
ability as good .sportsmen to supply the needs
of the body. Wo sorely regretted not doing
so the next day. That wholo day we wandered aimlessly ubout ovor the ondless
prairies, aud not ho much as an InsigniUcant
gopher in.ido its appc.trnnce to fall beforo
our shotguns. The cravings of hunger und
thirst now begun to assert themselves, nnd iu
our frenzied waudoring-i tho truth dawned
upon us that we were lust. Lostl Lost, indeed, upon a scorching prairie that seemed to
havo uo outlet, no trees, no water, no green
grass, and not a fowl or animal In sight.
The situation was horrible to contemplate.
Our faithful horses' tougucB were lolling
from their mouths, and wo wero so weak
from hunger thnt it was with great difficulty
wo remained iu the saddles.

Dr. W. A. McCorn, of the .New York City
Asylum for tho Insane, has found hyosoy-
miue, subcutaneous!y administered, a very
useful  remedy in quieting mania, and at*
i trail could not be found. A teamster on his
way to town with a load of hay had passed
the spot whero tho trail was lost in the pike
only a minute beforo tho hounds burst on tho
road in full cry. Tho teamster stopped on
seeing the pack and the riders following
them, to watch the result cf the maneuvering.
"Which way did Iw gof shouted one of
the hunters.
"Dunnol" the teamster shouted book,
"Didn't see him."
After watching tho dog aud tho hunters for
a fow minutes tho teamster went on. The
hunters unanimously declared that thero had
never beforo beeu such an inexplicable loss of
a fox's trail, and had to give up tho chose.
After goiug a mile or so, ns ho tells tho story,
the teamster with tbo hay stopped his horses
to talk with an acqiuuiitiince ho met on the
road, and as they were talking a fox Jumped
out of the luty at the rear end, landed in thei qv-j
road, nud trotted leisurely uway to cover.   ■' -5-+M
"Well, I'll bo jiggered I" said tho teamster,
and told his friend about tho wjy the hunters
had lost tho trail a mile back. Thoy both
concluded that tho ouly explanation of It was
that the fox hnd jumped into the rond just!

gauntl-r staring us iu tho face. How we man
aged to drag through the hours of tbat awful
night I can never relate, it was well on to
noon before we considered ourselves sufficiently rested to resume the hunt for e. sign
of civilization. Tho sun's burning rays
seemed to be hotter and moro relentless than
ever. We soon stopped, as we were too
fatigued to proceed any farther, Simultaneously it dawned upon us all that this was to
be our last day upon earth, anal with a
brotherly shake of tho hand we lay prone
upon tho ground awaiting the now welcome
coming of death.

grabbed his shotgun, placed the muzzle to
his brain, and would Iiuvo pulled the trigger
and ended his earthly troubles but for my
timely interference.

He then rushed to ono of the horses and shot
it dead. Hardly had tho animal fallen before
Hale, with obildish glee, pouuoed upon the
prostrate body, slashed ita throat with bis
hunting knife, and applied hla mouth to the
hot, gushing blood, drinking it down with a
gluttonous appetite.
The sight of flowing blood nerved us to
almost desperation, and ive crowded to the
yet dying horse, roughly pushed Hale aside,
and eagerly sucked the ebbing life's blood.
I believe to this day that nothing has ever
tasted better In my life. Our existence was
prolonged now for nt least a short period,
and our lips moved in grateful prayer.
A wild, maniacal shout from Hale attracted my attention. Great heavens I The
madman was mounted on ono of the horses
and tearing away. He was glancing back
and pointing ahead and screaming at iliaa top
of bis lungs: "WateTI WaterI"rOne of Us
must be loft behind. One liorso wns .tend,
and three persons could not rldo ogou the
two animals, tbat wero now* very aveak, I
looked iu the direction of Hale, and, sure
enough, what appeared to be water was seen
in the distance. I hnstened to acquaint my
companions of tbe joyful discovery. Hale
kept galloping madly on, looking neither
way, but furiously lashing hi* torse. A steep
precipice loomed before the rider, but he
heeded it uot, aud spurred his exhausted
animal to still greater speed. Tlio poor horse
attempted to swerve from its course and
avoid the yawning chasm, but Hale noticed
nothing but the fascinating danco of water
on the horizon. They were now'but ufew
rods from the precipice.
Still the horso was spureed on. He
neighed piteously,  plunged  forward,   and

Nanaimo, July 10th, 1SS0.
To the Honorable President and Director* |
of the Nanaimo Hospital:
Gentlemen—1 lake great pleasure ior
the third time in submitting to yon the
annual support of the Nanaimo Hospital
for the fiscal year ending June, 1889.
In comparing with the report of lssl j
year you will notice that there has been I
a marked increase in the number admit- j
ted to the Institution for treatment.    In j
fact, with  few  exceptions, the  Hospital;
has been taxed to its utmost for accom-
modatlon, and such being ihei'iisel see;
that  your honorable body have deemed
it   necessary    lo    erect    anolhcr  wing
which, when completed, will afford ample room for the increase of patients.
One hundred and twenty-nine cases
were treated during Ihe  preceding fiscal I
year.   There were  in all tlfteen deaths
during the year, seven of typhoid fever, |
one of disease of the kidneys, one of gen-
eral   debility,   one   of   phthisis, one  of |
chronic bronchitis, one of fractured spine,
one of paralysis,  one of heart disease,
one of Internal injuries; and there are at 1
the present date eleven patients ■e-auin-
ing in  the  Hospital, three of which are
suffering from rheumatism;  one  from
rupture, one Irom typhoid fever, one from
disease of the skin, one from fractured
spine, one from fractured tibia, and three
Incurables,
In conclusion, 1 again take great pleasure in thanking the Steward and Matron
Ior the attention they have paid io the
patients generally, and tlieir willing assistance to myself.
I am, gentlemen,
vonr obedient servant.
Lewis T. Davis, M. D.,
Surgeon to Nanaimn Hospital.
