The British Cabinet Alarmed
at the Situation
in Canada.
SEVERAL ENGLISH ORATORS WILL
Viuit the Dominion and Try to Arouse
the Flagging  Loyalty
of Canadians,
London, March HO.—A pessimist feeling again pervades diplomatic circles both
here and 011 the continent, and the opinion daily tains ground that Servia will
yet prove an apple of discord which will
set Austria and Russia by tlie ears. In
optimist circles at the court of Berlin the
opinion prevails thatM. Ristiecs, who has
been practically entrusted with the supreme control of Servia's fortunes, will
lie able to steer a middle course between
Austria and Russia without letting his
trust become the servant of either. In
one sense they admit M. Ristics has a difficult giimc to play between these two
great powers, but in another sense the
game is easy, as Servla is piotcctcil by
their 11111t.11.il jealousies. Pessimists, however, argue that the envious fear existing
between tlie two great powers will
result in nn overt act by one or other
which will precipitate the war so long
dreaded. lioth powers are continually
strengthening their frontier forces and at
present each has tin immense army ready
to move nt n moment's notice. Because
live-sixths of the present Servian parliament are Riuiiciil a number of Viennese
statesmen assume they are also "Rus-
."■ophites" ami that the Radicals and Liberals, tho f.'onsorvatives being almost entirely wiped out at the htBt election were
mainly pre-occupied with measures for
quickly and effectually banding over the
country to the Russians. This is a great
mistake, but it may yet be made a pretext
for Austrian interference in Servian affairs.
The fact is the Servians have no special
affection for Russia and certainly have
no desire to he merged in the Russian
empire. What they do care about is reunion witli the scattered millions ef the
Servian race. They may be willing to giye up all hope of
Croatia and Montenegro, but they
decidedly want Bosnia, Herzgovniu,
Novi Ba&ar and a part of Macedonia.
They regard Austria as their enemy because Austria has occupiod the Servian
lands oi Bosnia and has pushed forward
s wedge between Servla and Montenegro
by her advance to Nov! Bazar. This feeling is but natural on the part of the Servians, as there cannot be the faintest
doubt the chief, though not the onlv motive of tlie Austrian government iii tbe
adoption of this forward policy was to
strangle
THE 0REATEB SERVIA
In iti cradle. Austria did not want a
new, strong and compact state to be created on her frontier, and so set lo work to
make any such state impose ble. Whether
her interests really demanded any such
interference is a point on which it is possible to hold two opinions, but there can
be no doubt that if she gained any advantage by her forward policv it is an advantage for which she had to pay. The Servians are neither nan-Slavs'nor Russo-
phites, but the'v me undoubtedly
pun-Serbs and anti-Austrian, and these
feeliugs have been kept below the surface
only by ex-King Milan's steady influence
and the manipulations ot elections at the
natural fear of a great and powerful
neighbor. The great interest of the present situation is that these causes have
vcr., largely become inoperative. The
Servians do not like Austria for the excellent reasons above mentioned. They
further think that they are exploited bv
her, which is quite true. Tivo-thirds of
the total Servian trade is done
with Austria, and M. Ristiec's first term
of olliee came lo an end because
he resigned rather Hum yield to the demands made by Austria in the treaty of
commerce. Nothing makes one nation
hate another more than the belief well or
ill founded, that it is being commercially
exploited for the other's benefit without ii
corresponding advantage to iteeli. The
geographical position of Austria could not
but have at all times secured to it a great
influence In Servla, In striving for more
she has endangered everything.
The numerous disastrous collisions
which have occurred recently along the
coasts of Grout Britlan have reopened the
question whether every precautiou il
taken to ascertain the integrity of
SKIIIT AND COLOR
vision among Bailors of the mercantile
marine. An attache of the olliee of the
Hoard of Trade who has jurisdiction in
such matters said this afternoon:
"It. is extreinelyiuiportant that attention
should be drawn to this matter because
even if a man has satisfactorily passed
the vision test preparatory to signing articles he may still* subsequent^
lose the keenness of his sight and become
in addition to all intents and purposes
color blind. Thc cause which leads to
this untoward condition of things is tlie
invariable use of tobacco. The disorder
is known to ophthalmic surgeons as tobacco amblyopia, and the worst feature ol
the case id that the man himself is unable
to appreciate the serious loss he lias sustained in color perspection, while even
his failure ,,[ vision does not
at first attract his attention.
Clreen and red, the two colors
of all others with which he has to deal,
become in advanced cases altogether imperceptible. A slight reflection, therefore, will show that to place such n man
in a look-out's position, perhaps on account of bis previous good record for
sight, would be unquestionably to court
disaster. When, however, it is remembered how much (ho safety of (hips in
crowded thoroughfares at sea depends on
the good si;ht of the sailors, expediency
aiotie would suggest the urgency to submitting crews to periodical examinations
of vision and color flense. The Hoard o[
trade will shortly issue an order directing
that such examinations be held.
The llritisli Cabinet has become
alarmed at the situation in Canada in
reference lo the relations of Canada to the
mother country and its possible future
absorption in the Vnited States, which.
according to ollicial advices, is more serious than would appear from the published newspaper telegrams. An eminent Canadian, a Minister of State
of ujnnv years standing has written a letter to the SGOrotlll'V of the colonies lamenting on the growing feeling among the
young generation wilh respect lo the
mother country. This feeling he attributes
to Ignorance of thu history of England
and ignorance of ber present condition.
Canadians he assures tho Colonial secretary stand much in noed of enliglitcineiit
in these matters and adds that a vast service to Canada and the empire would be
done if some eminent Englishman whose
position and oratorical powers would insure attention would devote Borne weeks
or months in passing through the Dominion and delivering a series of lectures on
tlie history of tlie British empire. Lord
Salisbury has conferred with several leading Tory orators with a view to their making such a tour during the coming sum
ther .to carry out the suggestion of the
Canadian minister' Unless a dissolution
takes place this spring which would compel good speakers to remain at homo to
take part in the general election campaign

AGNOSTICISM,
Lecture   on Infidelity  by Mr, J,
Porter B, P. Laat Eyanin";,
W.
Tho lecture delivered by Mr. I, W.
Porter last evening In Instltuto Hall was
opened by singing the hymn No. 155 "Oil
where are the reapers?" and No. 82
"Only an armor bearer." Mr. S. Gough
kindly presided at the organ. The bouse
wns tilled. Rev. Mr. Chamberlain introduced the lecturer and said Mr. Porter had
been at heart an infidel till a few months
ago when he was in Vancouver aud attended tne revivalist meeting which caused
the conversion of himself and twenty-nine
others.
Mr. Porter on arising said be could say
like St. Paul that he bad persecuted the
church of God. Ills life hud been that of
a.- outspoken Atheist and he bad bad no
belief in the divine power, He thought
there was a religious feeling in Nanaimo,
but be wished to talk and convince the
Atheists as well. The infidel did not
quite know bis own mind on the subject
His ideas reminded him ef the words of the
rhyme, "It winded in and winded out,
and left the people all tn doubt." He
would endeavor to prove there Is some
creative power that is endowed witli divinity. Many infidels say the Bible will
not stand the' light of scientific research.
If he thought so lie would be tbe very
first to cast it aside. Nothing occurs that
cannot be attributed to some well defined
causes. Why does the solar system continue its course the same to-day as thou
sands of years ago? If it were only
guided by chance something surelv would
happen,' some dashing of world into
world, or planet into planet. How could
a man live here and dare say such things
went by chance? There must be no half
measures. A man must believe or disbelieve. Infidels say the world was at one
time a vast chaotic mass and that life was
evolved out of the molecular bodies in the
air. Nc molecule possessed tho germ of
life iu itself. A scientist hail taken a
bottle and heated it up to 212 degrees.
No life could exist at that point, yet infidels had saitl that life had evolved out of
a fused chaotic mass. Atheists also said
that the world was according to the Bible
UOOO years old, yet scientists antl geologists say it is nearer (1,000,000. These
excuses will not stand the test. I Iocs not
the Lord say that in His sight a day is as
a thousand years. Every miner knows
that where a volcanic eruption has taken
place changes have been discovered that
ill the ordinary course ef events inirht
have taken thousands nf years, yet which
probably did not take days nor hours.
Skeptics cavilled al the difference
in the description of the writings on
the cross. Yet everyone knew that in a
court of law, the best evidence was that
of persons who concurred in the statement of the main facts, but not in minute
particulars; but the same persons wished
the bible to be exact in the most trifling
particulars. Again infidels laugh at Josh-
mi for commanding the sun lo stand still
and not knowing that the earth moved
round the sun. Yet nineteenth century
almanacks describe the sun as setting or
rising, tiod had created man a free
agent. He had two paths before him;
one leading to sin and the other to righteousness, lie could choose which ho
liked. For his part if he saw a man determined to go to the bad ho would try
his best to dissuade him, hut he was not
the sort of man to throw Christianity at a
man's head. .Many men would net join
a church because thoy saw so many hypocrites who were church members, but he
would tell them there were no hypocrites
in Heaven to-day. Queen S'ictoria was
asked how it was' that Great Britlan was
the greatest power on earth?
She simply pointed to the bible.
He wished to ask was there ever a hospital or Infirmary or anything of that sort
started and maintained hv infidels? He
could say most emphatically, no. 1 lancing was not in his opinion a sin, though
as used by some it bad the appearance of
sin. Many thought it the height of martyrdom to dunce at a charity ball and pie-
tended they only did for the good of the
cause, lie counselled a religion of love.
Religion was a porous plaster, it wanted
continuously applying. Tlie lecturer said
he had intended to say more but wns very
bourse. He concluded with n benediction. Mr. Edwards tben sang a solo after
which Mr. Booth moved a vote ol thanks
mid tbe meeting concluded with ft «»llg'

Washington, March 80.—The disaster
in Apia harbor iu the severest so far us
wrecking of vessels is concerned that the
navy has yet. experienced at sea. There
have been Instances, however, where
larser number of lives were lost. Most
notable of those naval disasters wns the
sinking of the Albany off West Indies in
Iti'iS. Neither the vessel nor 200 persons
aboard were ever heard of. In IrtoS the
United States sloop-oi'-war Lavanta with
200 people aboard went down in the Pacific and were never heard from. In lWill
the brig Baiubridge went down oil'Cape
Ilatteras and only one negro was saved.
Thc Monoiigahela was washed isbore al
Stntll Crni! by a tidal wave in 1807 and
landed on lop of some houses. She was
finally launched and repaired and is now
in use. The Wateree and the p'redonia
were nopsptod with a tidal wave, caused
hy an earthquake, ofT the coast of Peru.
The lYotereo wns carried inland font considerable distance, and strange lo sav
none ofthe crow were drowned or kiih-ii.
The worst disaster to the Vnited States
during lute years was the sinking of the
Huron In a storm off Connecticut Bench,
near Cape llalterns, in 1876. Knsiun
(now Lieutenant) I.uclen Young, the only
mill) on board who was saved from the
wreck, was at. the Navy Department today making inquiries concerning some of
his old shipmates who were on board the

A Visit to the Government Dredge aud
Brief Description of What is
Eeiaii Doue There.
I'cw people even in Ibis cily haVB any
idea of the magnitude of tlie work being
done by the Dominion government dredge
al Nicol ruck in the harbor of Nanaimo.
In fact i: is barely possible that there may
ho a few people who are even unaware
that this obstruction to tho harbor is be-
in;: steadily removed and is growing small
and beautifully less as each day goes by.
A representative of ibis paper paid the
dredge a visit yesterday for the purpose
of gaining some knowledge "f the work
being done, in order lo place il before tlie
(ju'iiiKit renders. He was courteously
received by ihe superintendent of iho
work, Aid. II. Nightingale, who gave the
scribe noma valuable Information concerning whal has already been accomplished,
nnd what yet remains to bo done. The work
of removing Nicol rock wus commenced
in December, 1887, but it was not until
March of last year that blasting wns
actively begun. T'p to the present time
1410 tons of rock have been taken out,
and it is row estimated that the work is
more than half completed. An examination of the dredge shows that everything
is In first-class condition, and ihe Super
inteiideiit. Mr. Nightingale, nnd Hie
Engineer Mr. Goodwin are most courteous
.'ind obliging. Prom the former it was
learned lhat this dredge was originally
biiilf for the purpose of dredging lor gold
hi the Finger river, but nol working well
for that purpose it wns abandoned.
Subsequently il wns purchased
by Messrs. Connolly & Larklu, the osn-
Iraclore, for the graving dock at Esqul
malt. Afterwards ii was purchased by
Ihe Dominion flovcminent and has been
in active tiae ever since The dredge is
108 feet in length by 30 foot in breadth
and only draws three feet of water. '1'b'i
principal engine is lii-horse power and the
hoisting engine is 8-horso power.
Boring the rock is done by menns
of un Ingercoll steam drill' of the
most approved pattern, and is
and is a model of simplicity and strength.
In boring the rock a tubular pipe is used
inside of which the drill works, and from
fifteen to twenty-five feet are drilled
each day. When about thirty holes
have been drilled in the rock
dynamite is placed in them and
the explosion takes place, and huge
fragments of rocks, some weighing as
much as six tons, arc then brought to the
surface hy the "clumps." placed on scows
and taken ashore or to some convenient
locality ami dumped,
Should Ihe boulders Ibnl are loosened
by tlie blast prove too large to he handled
wilh safety and ease by  Ibe "clamp*,"  a
smaller drill fastened io the dredge itself
Is used to still further reduce tbem in
size. What is called the finishing drill
is thirty-seven feet In length. Sixteen explosions have already taken place,
as has been staled, and 1400 tons of rock
have been taken nut, the largest individual piece weighing about six and a half
tons.
When the Ingersoll drill is in operation
a hole three feet in denlb and four inches
in diameter can be drilled without change
of drill. It may be said as an example of
the number of feet drilled before an explosion, thai, in the fourteenth explosion
there were over 4 r.l feel drilled, and ill
tlio fifteenth more than :! HI feel. The boring apparatus is most complete and can
be raised or lowoied as desired. The drill
is connected with the boiler by iieans of
a rubber connecting hose, and Is mosl
complete in every particular. The drill
is self-acting andIt wilt repay a vicii in
order to watch the apparent ease with
which it penetrates the rock.   Water for
the boilers is conveyed from Ibe pipes of
the Nanaimo Water Works Co, and is
excellently arranged. It is estimated tl n'.
it will take three years from the time of
the commencement of the wora until the
whole is completed. A diver will be employed next summer In order to fa'ilitat.t
the work which when completed will give
i sixteen feet of water at the  lowest tide.
] No anchors are used on board this peeu-
I liar looking vessel, it being anchored by
what are called "spuds" that is. upright
! timbers which are dropped into the bottom of the harbor, where they take firm
; hold or are raised at pleasure. Everything
aboul Ibe dredge is in first class order,
and the care taken bv Supt. Nightingale
In the work is everywhere evident. The
total force now engaged on the work
numbers seven men, the superintendent,
Aid. Nightingale, the engineer, Mr.
Goodwin, the lir-man. blacksmith, and
three others. Altogether flu- work so far
has been   most   satisfactory,   and  when
completed will be a lasting Improvement
to what already Is one of the finest harbors on  the Pacific coast.

RECREATION FOR THE
PEOPLE.
BOOTS
Gi
Tlie ideaB of different people differ materially as to the definition of the above
caption. Time was when among tlie Puritans of MassachussetS and Connecticut
at was a penal offence for one lo
laugh on the "Sabbath day." Mothers
■were fined for following the impulses of
Iheir tender hearts, for kissing their children on Sunday. It was pandering—so
these good old men thought—lo the devil,
and his Satanic majesty and all that savored of him in any shape or form was
Strictly condemned. They no doubt, were
blind zealots, men of austere thought and
Whose habits of simplicity and tlie rigorous and active lives which they lived, hnci
become a part and parcel of their religion
nnd they could not look upon what tbev
considered "levity" on the Sabbath day.
They were rigorous to a degree in tlie enforcement of their own opinions. They
■were not liberal, but that perhaps was
raore their misfortune than their fault.
Although they bad left their homes in
England for the sakeof their religion, they
did not feel disposed to countenance anything that savored of dissent from their
own peculiar views, or any one who had
thetcrmeritv to think for himself and who
would not accept the dogmas laid down
by those who in the language of Mrs.
Ileinans "sought freedom to worship
God." The "blue laws" of Connecticut
nnd their rigid provisions arc familiar to
nearly everybody, and we who live in the
latter pmt nf tlie nineteenth century can
afford to look with incredulous wonder
upon such enactments. But ii we progress,
is the very progression which we claim of
benefit un. Do we advance, are wo at a
Standstill, or is the human race degenerating? The question of Sabbath desecration is receiving considerable attention
from the divines of all schoolB. We are
told that the people are becoming careless
oi Sabbath observances, and speak lightly
oi the command which tells us to "Remember the Sa'l'ntli day to keep it holy."
But is Oils a fact, are people any more
careless oi the observance of sacred
things—the changed conditions of the
world being taken into consideration—•
than they were five hundred years ago?
While we admit that there is ample room
for argument, we do not believe that
there is much point in the arguments of
those who would fain have uh believe that
all are going to perdition as fast ns possible, through their increasing carlessness
in tlie observance of the rights and duties
of tho Sabbath day. It has been said of
old that the "Sabbath was made for man
not man for the Sabbath," and this we
hold to be true. Man after a week of toil
nnd trouble, wants not only rest and recreation for the body, but also for the
mind. Unless tho mind has time for recuperation for thought and reflection, il
must become barren, and so the body too
will suffer, if moans are not taken to provide for the waste entailed by the weai
and tear of every day life. It is ton true
that people live nt a much faster rate,
than in the good   old   days  when   there
were not the same demands upon them
that there arc now-a-days. Then
the world was younger, there was not the
same competition in the various avenues
of life, nnd there was not the same need
for the break-neck pace which we now
pursue. "It is the pace lhat kills" in
these days, nml the question naturally
arises how the pace can be lessened
nnd how can we learn, if we can learn, lo
reduce it and give that time and attention
necessary to both body and mind? Bo
people wear out more quickly now than
formerly?  We  believe  they do,   nnd  M..l(avlc
while perhaps the "wearing out" so early ' *
ib often not entirely creditable to
them, still is it not belter in a majority of
cases to wear out than rust oul?" But
apart from all abstruse reasoning our
people want more rest, they wantmoic
recreation. Too much time is devoted
to business and too little to pleasure and
leisure. There is too much solialtnde
nl'ler the "almighty dollar," and too little
thought for their own health, their individual comfort, and that of their families.
Tt is easy to point out existing wrongs
aud grievances, but it is much harder to
suggest remedies, and our purpose in this
article is not to do so. We believe that
there is something higher and nobler in
this world than the mere accumulation oi
wealth, and that man has some other
duties to discharge besides the hoarding
tip of riches. An 1 so means should be
provided in every  city whereby  its citi
>      ........1 !. »_.
have an almost insensible effect upon
mankind, and instead of denying ourselves a few momenta of pleasure wo
should all the more cultivate these feelings within ourselves. So one of our
needs is a pleasantly situated park, where
±i.i. may spend a few pleasant hours in
harmless enjoyment and where all, we
feel assured, will derive a benefit from a
place of common recreation. It takes
time we know to accomplish these things,
but the sooner earnest, work is begun thc
more quickly will the desired end be attained.

A Oilman minister, nfler remarking
that "the professional detective is synon-

"I say this asninst the protest of my wife,
who assured me that my property, nay,

property and his life are doubtless safe
enough, but his reputation for the commonest sort of common sense is in imminent danger.

In its campaign against the Polish language the Russian Government is em-;
ploying ways and means that recall the
brutalities of the Dark Ages. At Wllna, |
where half Ihe people know no other language, every one is absolutely forbidden,
under severe penalties, to utter a word of
Polish In public or in private. House
servants, coachmen and other work-people are offered prizes to inform ngaiiiBt
their employers or their employers'
friends, and bribed to listen nt keyholes
for conversation in the forbidden tongue.

The House met at 2:30 p.m. on
Friday.
REPORT.
Mr. Ladner presented .1 report of
the -.elect committee to enquire into
Artesian Well boring. The committee
recommended the continuance of the
work of prospecting for water. Report
adopted.
CHARITIES.
Hon. Mr. Robson introduced a bill
granting land to certain charities.
Mr. Ladner also moved that it be
resolved that a respectful address be
presented to his honor the Lieut.-Gov-
ernor requesting him to call the attention
of the Dominion Gov't to the fact that
the width of the draw of the proposed
bridge at St. Mary's Mission is unsuffi-
cient to accommodate the steamers ply-
I''raser River.    He urged

Mr. Divio contended that all homeo-  WJIOTMfl       lift M TEE   ]
pathic men should be required to pro- HmmlJIlV      wUllllill  ,
duce a diploma from a school requiring

ing on   the
that the bridge be constructed so as
not to interfere with the safe navigation
ef the river. The other spans of the
bridge were 100 feet wide, and the
draw should be the same.
Hon. Mr. Vernon considered the
motion  intro'Uiced a most proper one.
Mr, Higgins seconded. The motion carried.
WAYS AMD MEANS.
Tfie House went into committee on
the second reading of the Supply Bill, |
which was reported without amendment.
Mr. Grant said that if the bill was
read a third time and passed now, the
House could be closed at any moment.
He would like to know what the Government intended to do regarding the
numerous small bills on the notice
paper,
Hour Mr. Robson said the Government had no intention of doing anything to prevent legislation. The closing of the House was altogether in the
hands of the members. Report adopted and the bill read a third time and
passed.
VANCOUVER AMENDMENTS.
The House went into committee on
the Vancouver Incorporation Amendment Hill, Mr. Duck in tiie chair.
Bill reported complete, with amendments, to be considered Monday.
KOOTENAY RAILWAY,
Hon. Mr. Robson moved the second
reading of the bill to grant a subsidy
to Ihe Kootenay Railway Co. The
provisions were practically the same as
those contained in the bill of last
year,
Mr, Higgins objected to the absence
of a clause to regulate tolls. Why
were not the live clauses of tne
Dominion Act inserted here in place of
the obsolete clauses of an act passed
by the Vancouver Island Assembly in
>S<*3?
Col, Haker said the  lion, member
for Esquimalt had  been engaged for
some hours  wilh  a large number of
j books on Consolidation Acts and the
result was that the "mountain had been
' in labor and brought forth  a   truly
■ "redieulus mus."
Mr. Heaven said lhat granting large
(blocksof land  was iminical to settle-1
I ment.   He   would  vole   against  the
, measure. I
Mr. Semlin said this bill would not
, have thc desired effect of opening up
I thc Kootenay district.
j Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir said he could

[Special Correspondence.]
Having occasion lo visit Comox we
boarded the steamer Dunsmuir on Thursday morning and hft Hirst's wharf ut 7
ii. in. The day was delightful and we
steamed ulong,  making our first call nt
, Departure Bay. The Comox Football
Team, tho genial old soul Mob Hull, nllli
Ihe popular hook agent Ben Lee.--, and llr.
Sliarschmiill and bride, were passengers
bv the stcan er.
I 'To any one who dr-nlres nlripfoi' the
purpose of viewing line scenery and en-
Joyiug oneself; lie cannot do better thai)
j avail himself of making it trip   by HIC
j DunSmuir to Comox.
Proceeding on our voyage we received
tn visit from IJtiulieuni Tohi. who
is well known to liie old sel-
I tiers of the Island as an authority
I on information respecting the different
Islands and districts around French Creek
rtlld AlbBrnl niul ni'iei' point-i on YnnCjii-
ver Islands   After culling nt Hornby ami
Henmun's Islands with freight, passen-
( gers and mails, we arrived at the   I'nion
Collieries wharf, which is situated 11 short
distance from Comox.   This wharf is the
finest and best constructed wharf in the
1 Province.    11 extends about lliOO feet from
; the mainland of the Island into tbe sea,
, anil vessels enn be loaded on either side
i of the wharf at anv time or season of the
i year.   The wharf is very strongly eon-
I structed, and  has all modern improve-
I menta and facilities for loading and un-
I loading vessels in connection with it.
I    The company intend to complete their
I coal cars  at  once, which will   be capa-
! ble of carrying from the mines twenty-
' five tons of coal each,   The new 40-ton
: engines to be used in connection with Ibe
j collieries nre expected to arrive in a short
time, nnd everything  Ib being hastened
forward at the mines to develop and ship
j coal at as early a date us possible.   There
1 is also a good, substantial und well built
I wharf for general purposes constructed by
I the company.
The settlement of Comox is the next
I place at which the steamer calls, and arriving there about 2 p. in. one wonders
where all the people arrive from, as you
see a large gathering of men—apparently
all farmers—at the wharf awaiting the
arrival of the steamer. Thc nrst man you
encounter is mine host of the Elk Hotel,
(leorge McDonald, and Sam Cliffe, proprietor nf tbe Lome House; und leaving
the steamer you proceed to the town nnd
find a huge number of the settlers of the
dietiiet ami neighboring islands (Den-
man nni Hornby) waiting for their mail.
The town of Comox is not al present very
large, hut when once the railroad arrives
there and steamboat Besvlceis more frequent, it will become one of the best and
most thriving towns in the province
There are four general stores and business
places in the town, and two hotels, the
Elk House and the Lome Hotel. A fine
large Hall has also been erected by the
Knights of Pythias. Our enterprising
j townsman, W. F. Cheenv, has recently
! started a general slore and auction rooms
in the District.   Having but a short time
at our disposal, we could not visit Ihe District thoroughly, but succeeded in visiting a number* of places, and must Bay
that for agricultural purposes the District
of Comox is one of the best, if not the
best funning country on the Island. All
through the District one seeB signs of
prosperity and tine land for (arming purposes, and all appear lo have good, Btrong,
substantial and roomy farm bouses, and
engaged in putting in their clops. The
Islands of Denman and Hornby are also
well settled, and by Information obtained
the District must have a population of
850 to 400 settlers
The gallant Capt. Rogers having as
passengers Dr. and Mrs. Scharschmidt,
hoisted bis flag as we came into the Hornby and the Hot-tor was kept busy all the
1 afternoon and evening receiving the congratulations of their numerous throughout
the District.

Letters From the People.
Editor Courier :—I am pleased to see
you bo outspoken in your paper of the
20th when referring to that noble army
of self sacrificing citizens who nightly, in
fair Weather or foul, lay aside every pleasure of life (niul the hours lhal more erring
mortals devote lo recreation; nnd strive
by bravely boating drums and cymbals j
nnd by suppliant appeals to our wander-1
ing residents—to make men and women, |
nay even musicians, oul of the crudes!
material thai overtrumped around our byways nnd high-ways. And I say il was
gratifying to see yotl speak so plainly
ngnitist the ringing of 11 lire hell "ju-ii al
thai time." I think the dk.vii. should nol
be allowed lo run this place iu any such ti
manner, in opposition to such tt good and
noble eaUOO,    Why should UK be allowed
to inspire people to ring fire bells for drills
or even genuine tire alarms, lo dlBtract
or throw 11 dumper upon tbnt, persistent
crusade against sill when 011 it'i ninivli. I
also think thai   the brigade   company or!
association   known as   the "firo-boys"!
should be reprimanded severely for ring-
ing drills. Why il is never customary lo i
do so in mining camps. Cannot the officer in charge quietly go around to the
iioys and ask them to steal down to the
shed ajul take the machine around some |
back street or to sonic out of the w.iy
place and then they can work it to their
till. And not be in the way of our volunteer skin band, who should always have
the preferauce to the street right or privilege. I believe our worthy council might
lie persuaded to pass a by-law granting
Ihcin such light and privileges, if nicely
approached. It is customary in towns
for the manager of a fire company to authorize his men to strike the lire hell nt IL'
o'clock noon; and to tap the hell ut all
times for drills properly called, and when
be thinks fit to ring a false alarm without
any notice to teFt the efficiency of bis
brigade. But while this is necessary In
towns, I agree with you it is ridiculous to
lie so strict in n mining camp. And 1 am
happy to find vou bo plainly outspoken
against this apeing manhood while in
swaddling clothes. Let us hope they will
not disturb the camp again from a lack ol
knowledge as lo tbe difference between a
town afltla mining camp,.   oiei.oy
