(Special at) the l.oalti.ii.,
London, July 27.—The rjeeent controversy between Germany and Switzerland
litis left an uncomfortable ground-swell
behind it. A good many people on the
continent buve been asking themselves
whether Prince Bismack really went out
ol bis way to ulienate Switzerland, and
whether the campaign ol' the German
press against Swiss neutrality was not
meant to lay Ihe foundation lor future
violation.
The French press have naturally
warned the Swiss in ull moods and
tenses, to beware ot Germany. Thus one
writer urges thnt iu a new campaign
Germany will not think ol breaking her
troops against the girdle of granite which
encircles the French frontier, from Mont-
medy to Belfort, but will dash into
Switzerland and turn the French defences
by seizing Geneva and inarching straight
on Lyons. The fort, Ue Lecluse, on the
Rhone to the south-west of Geneva, perhaps, deserves more alte ition from exponents of this theory than it has
received al the present. It holds both
the direct road to Bourg and Macone and
the longer road by the river bank to
Lyons. However, they admit that if the
Germans could once get to Geneva they
would bo in a formidable position against
the French. Italians coming presumably, by way of Simplon or one of the
passes from Aosla, would, in the imagination of the French journalist, make
"1KKEVA THEIR OBJKCTIVK
point, and thus avoid entangling themselves in the difficult maze of the
Dauphiue and Savoy Alps, not lo mention the trifling obstacles of fortilicatiotiB
on the French side of France, the Italian
passes and the great camp at Brianeou.
According to this theory, the Italians
would march down the Upper Rhone
Valley defile guardeal by thi' fortifications
of St. Maurice, aud so along the northern
bank ot the great lake to Geneva and
their friends the Germans. The latter
would have meanwhile marched across
the Swiss lowlands from Basle to Brugg
or Shaffhaiisea to Lausanne, and so to
the common objective point of Geneva,
It will be noticed that this French
writer does not attempt to take the Germans across the Jura mountains bv way
of I'orlaliei' or St. Serges or other leBS
known passages. Germans know too well
that the French Jura is too well
secured by fortresses like those of Ponta-
lier and Los Rotisses. und that it is practically impossible for a hostile army. On
the hypothesis that Ibe Swiss do nothing
and that the French look tin, a German
army wonld indec.l most probably go
straight to Geneva, und if it could be
joined thero by an Italian army, so much
the better for Germans and Italians. The
two hypotheses thus made are, however,
not reasonable. Thc Swiss have a respectable army ol some 20,000 men which
has been greatly improved since 1870.
It might possibly be taken by surprise
while its mobilization was incomplete.
But it would be a strange thing if iteould
not, nt nil events make itself extremelv
disagreeable to an
We take the following account of last
Tuesday's cricket match in this city
from the Vancouver Nemt-Adrertiter oi
Friday last :—
An eleven of thc Vancouver Cricket
Club proceeded lo Nanaimn on Monday
afternoon by the Rainbow to play Hie
fust cricket match that has taken place
between tbe two cities, tin arriving at
the Newcastle of British Columbia, the
Visitors were alriven tn the ground, and a
little practice indulged in, after which
they were royally entertained at dinner
at the Delmonlco by tbe home club. A
most enjoyable evening was spent, the
usual toasts being enthusiastically drunk,
antl a number of songs and recitations,
capitally rendered, by Messrs. Armfelt.
Lawson, Harvey, Crickmay .Green,Hone-
man, Johnston anal others.
The match commenced at 11 a.m. Tuesday, the V. C. ('• hatting first, and were
quickly dismissed for 4'.', runs, Messrs,
Newington and Coleman with 14 ami 18
each, alone offering much resistance to
the crpital bowling oi Hodgson, who
took everv advantage ol the rough and
difficult wicket. Tbe I*
reach their adversaries' total by 0 runs
Dixon making 1 Gout of the 111 "runs off
the bat The fielding of the visitors was
weak, and several catches were dropped,
and this in all probability c.ottl them
the match, for ou going in for their
second innings they only made 80, the
wicket being now absolutely unplayable.
Bewicke, who saw nine wickets fall, carried out bis hat for rt runs, a patient innings in which he showed sound defence.
The Nanaimo men just passed the total
by D iiinB, Hodgseu and Potta, 15 and 7
each, virtually won the game for their
side.
Green's bowling in the lirst innings
was very destructive.his six wickets costing two runs each. Hodgson, for Nanai-
mo.obtained five wickets for twelve runs,
and Fripp three wickets for threo runs
in the Becond innings ol Nanaimo, from
which it is easily seen that the bowlers
had all their own way.
The hospitality of the Nanaimo Club
was simply unbounded. The widest travelled members of the visiting team
could call to mind no occasion in their
cricketing experience on which so much
genuine kindness was shown. The visitors were driven everywhere, entertained
at all mealB anal absolutely taken chargo
of by their open-hearted opponents.who
even chartered a special train to convey
the defeated eleven to Victoria in time to
proceed to Vancouver by the Y'osemite
when it was found that the Rainbow was
unavailable for the return trip.
The next match takes place at Hastings during the latter end of August and
it need hardly lie said that the Vancouver Cricket Club intend doing tlieir level
best to show how thoroughly they appreciated the exceeding good fellowship displayed towards them not only bv the
members of the Nanaimo Cricket Club,
but by everyone with whom thev came
into contact,

what he took to be a Tarantula spiiler
The treasure was soon safely housed in
an empty cigar box, which on the return
journey of the hunters, waa placed on the
seat of the buggy. When some seven
miles from Victoria the young tourist
man sprang into the air with a wild
yell, shrieking that the spider had got out
of its box and bitten him. A hnmper was
instantly opened and a bottle of 3-slar
brandy hastily extracted, the contents of
which were rapidly transferred lo the
stomach oi the bitten one. Contrary to
the popular notion that liquor can liave
no intoxicating effect upon a person
bitten by a venomous reptile or insect,
our hero was soon placed kors dr combat
and carefully laid on the bottom of the
buggy. His friends now drove rapidly

CANADIANS
ENGLISH.
In another column will be found a letter from u correspondent, drawing attention io the differences that he says exists
in this city between Canadians ami Englishmen. We agree with our correspondent that amongst certain Canadians
and eeetuiu Englishmen there is
considerable antagonism. Costume, accent, tradition—all—tend to separate
them, John Him. carries England with
him wherever he goes, and Canada, bis
eldostdaughter, thinks, with hereditary
obstinacy, that nothing is good outside ot"
her own fair dominion While disagreeing with the insinuation in our correspondent's letter that, our E, C. purposely
intended lo excite the national prejudices
of English and Canadians against each
other, we are of opinion that Ibe action
of the Free Press was unwise.
Let us live and let live. If tlm Englishman chooses to wear his knee-
breeches why sneer and call him a abide.
Hoes he not do as good anal honorable
work as his Canadian cousin who prefers "pants." On lhe other hand we
would fain bops lhat thoughtless young
fellows bred in an older civilisation than
this of the broad and happy Dominion of
Canada.will strive lo refrain from expressions of contempt for those who may happen to differ slightly from themselves—-the
more so that there is not, nor can be, any
real difference between the two nations;
allied as tbey are in blood, language, literature, laws, tradition, and historical
associations. There is no surer mark of
,tubs ignorance on the part either of the
individual or the community than this
assumption of national superiority. If it
were not almost painful to those whose
steps have letl tbem into other lands
Ihan this of  Iiritisb  Columbia, il   would
Wi: hear much nowadays of agricultural depression in England. British
fanners find their way out even to Van-
couver Island, in the hops of their being
able lo fold down the old leaves and turn j
to newer onns; or in other words in the J
hope that in their new home they will be
able to get out of the old groves, and
occupy themselves and (heir land by pro-1
ducing just sua b requirements as are of'
the most profitable nature. We give our
eaders one instance of why English
fanners in tlieir own country have failed
to make agriculture pay. The new Board \
of Trade Journal contains a report from j
Mr. Thornton of the Hritish Legation in
Copenhagen, whieh gives a remarkable \
account of the magnitude of the egg trade
of Denmark with the I'nited Kingdom,
and which, Mr. Thornton says "must excite a painful astonishment in the breast
of the Englisn poultry farmer." In 1867
the export of eggs from Denmark was
45,000 sa'oro. valued at £1,800; in 1887 it
was 1M4.000 score, valued at £81,1188; in
1887 it had risen to 5,640,725 score,
valued at £262,514. Of this latter enormous quantity nine-tenths came to this
country. The trade is a recent one in
Denmark and is capable of increased
development. "Asa matter of fact, in
Jutland alone, which has hitherto, in
spite of its superiority in size over the
other provinces of the kingdom, remained rather in the background, an enormous extension in the production nf
ejgs is confidently looked for,
Thk Allahabad papers relieved by the
last mail describe a curious search for
treasure believed lo be buried in the Al-
fonl Park in lhat town, lt seems that
some years before lhe Mutiny the then
Prime Minister of the King of Delhi resigned Imb appointment and brought his
family and his wordly possessions to
Allahabad, where he built a large house
and an underground chamber to keep his
jewels and treasure. This hitler is Baid
to have included a lakh of gold mohurs,
of the kind now valued at "J8 rupees each.
Shortly before the Mutiny he died,
and, during the alisturbnnee, his family
fled, covering tip the chamber as best
they could. When order was restored a
j line of barraa-ks was constructed by order
; of IrHrd Canning on the site of tbe village
I in which the ex-Premier's house wae
built, and the existence of the imder-
', ground chamber was forgotten by all except some relatives who, on trying to
I reach it. on one occasion were so stung by

available weapon, and. jumping on a
hand car. oped to the spot where liu.'
buck waa belal captive. Full of confidence Miulge advanced nearer with upraised hatchet to glvs tho finishing
stroke at the center of tbe head.
Warily watching tbe opportune moment, down came tho hatchet with powerful force, but by a quick, slight movement of the deer nt the same instant the
blow bit the side of the bead, and so
astonished the affrighted animal that it
leapt right into lhe air—as Mudgo expressed it—at least twelve feet high, anal
came down before him on all of its limbs,
free. The upward miraculous spring relaxed llio loop ami releaaed tbo leg. Now
stood near lo him lhe maddened animal,
with hair upraised along the back, ready
for u lunge. Fearlessly Mudgo met tho
onslaught und, whilo calling to hia companion for aid, be impulsively threw hie
hatchet, as an Indian would his tomahawk, at tho buck's bead. It hit the
horns and, glancing ofT, weut flying ovel
tbo fence. Tho buck's charge was liu I,
impeded. Its feet camo dowu sidling
from Mudge's left shoulder, tearing hi
clothes and abralslng tho skin and brin;:

Luckily at this moment had como lib

got on at Nasbvillo I noticed wo had
aboa     a big black bear, but ho seemed
become insane.   Some act of sudden und unreasonable violence or the demonstration of
some astounding delusion ecmpols attention
to his t-ouditiou.   Then, friends unal relatives
remember he has beeu for some lime "acting

his mind been affected!"' is tine that awakens
much excited Interest, especially among those
having business relations avith him, or concerned in his estate.   "Itest and quiet will
speedily restore him," say his friends, and so
physicians profess to hope.   Ho is secluded
in an asvlnm, or iu somo private rural retreat.   The next that is hoard of him is that
experts  in  cerebral   affections   have pro-
nouucod his disease "paresis."   Paresis!   The
horror of tho ago; u sloiv death  iu lifo; a
malady as incurable and  inevitably fatal as
leprosy—that is paresis.
Perchance, after a lime, tbo victim may
seem to rally, to regain his mental control,
and hopeful friends will uutibt the correctness of tho pbyalolana" diagnosis.   But in a
few months the renction comes, darker and
, darker   the  cloud   settles  down   upon   the
afflicted iniud, more and more feeblo grows
tho body, slowly and surely life lades out.
How rami}" instances of this fatal progression

cases—where it is induced altogether by alcoholism—lu which tho end is delayed as
much as ten years, the greater part of which

Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Dear
Sir;—We embrace this opportunity of con'
gratulating you upon the wide-spread rcpu
tation this justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Jrowne's Chlorodyne, has earned for
itself, not only in Hindustan, bul all over
the East. As a remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a better is imported into the country, and we shall lie
glad to hear of its finding a place in every
Anglo-Indian home. The other brands, we
are happy tu say, arc now relegated to thc
native bazaars, and judging from tlieir salet
we fancy their sojurn tliere will be but
evanescent. We coultl multiply instances
infinitum of lhe extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diairlue,
and anal Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting uf Pregnancy, and
as. general Sedative, that have otaiairred
und* f our personal observation during many
years. In Choleraic Diarrhrea, and even if
the mure terrible furms of Chuleia itself, wc
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used cny other foi in uf this
medicine Ihan Collis Browne's, from a lirm
conviction thai it is decidedly the best, and
also from a sense ol duty we owe to the proj
fession anal the public, as we are ofthe
upinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Collis Browne's, is A DELIBERA*TE

LETTERS TO THE EDITOE.
Kjin-'H r-'t k.i-"k :—[notice in the Free
Pr«««« of the 25th instsvj an allusion t.> :<
remark said to have been made by one of
ihe* Nanaimo cricketers, to the effect
that an Bnglishman was better than a
Canadian.     Whether that is true or not.
! the Press, supposed to he a leader of public opinion, ought net to have printed it.
The breath between Canadian and
English i-s already too wide. Then why
should the Press try lo widen it? To
make allusions, such as I refer to, is to
revive memories which oughl t«> he forgotten, it i-» like waving the "bloody
shirt" in America. I know that some
Canadians and some Englishmen make
remarks not very complimentary to each
other's nationality, and if tho journals of
this city were to print them all, Nanaimo
would soon be divided into camps. We
have had already too much of this
wretched squabbling. I aii we not all live
in unity like brethren? The Canadian
is as much of a stranger in this Province as
, the Englishman, and both arc subjects of
the Queen. I know thai Canadians hare
had much provocation irom early settler**
iu Britis.li Columbia, and that retaliation
is human. 1 also know that some Englishmen still give offence to their Canadian brothers, lint surely, the more
sensible and Staid members of the community .among whom 1 have always,
hitherto, numbered the Free Pr$t$)t
ought to try lo  remedy   tills deplorable
Mate ot matter?.   Instead of that, prominent Canadians object, with openly expressed   scorn,    to  the   Englishman

object   to the thrift  of the Canadians—
the virtue which  eventually  will   make
them a great people. The whole squabble
is puerile iu the extreme.     Beneath   the
room   where   I am now sitting. Englishmen and Canadians are working together
in harmony, extracting, at tlie  peril  of
their lives, tbo wealth of this eity.    The
English  dtntr,  as  well as the Canadian
working.nun.   puts  his shoulder  to the I
wheel,   and,   with   English pluck, does
with all his tnlghl  whatever his hand l
finds to do.    Let us then bo lenient with
