FOREST FIRES  fS  VIRGINtA.
Enllimnrp. April 10.—The Sun's special
from Danville, Va., says "a despatch
from Critz's Depot, on the Danville nn()
New River Railway, in Patrpk county,
gives a graphic account of devastation bv
forest fires extending from Patrick Spring
to Criteers. covering an area of ten miles
long and three to six wide. The Are commenced Friday nfternoon, and burned
until heavy rain finally stopped it Sunday
night,. A slight rain on Friday impedecl
the (lames temporarily, but they broke
out afresh Saturday and raged with increased vigor. The flames, impelled by a
gale, swept Ihrotigh the fertile valley
called Wild Cat Hollow like a tornado,
preceded by sounds like rolling thunder,
and dashed up the mountain sides. liar
ness, cattle and hogs. became paralyzed
with fear and were easy prey of the
flames. Houses, fences, barns, stables
and granaries were swept awav like
tinder boxes. lOver one hundred families
are left homeless. They escaped with
only the olothes they wore. A large portion of the burnt district Is mountainous
country, ipnisoly settled bv poor people
who are left in a destitute condition. The
latest reports state thatfrom 60 to 86 head
cattle, a doten horses, and over 200 hogs
were burned. It Is estimated that about
400 dwellings were destroyed, every vestige of fencing is gone. It it known that

TVt WESTERN UNION CAN'T BO IT.
Chicago, April 16.—Mr. A. B. Candler,'
President of the Postal. Telegraph Cable
Company, was seen in thc general office
of that company in this city to-day. His
attention was called to the report that the
consolidation of the Postal Telegraph Cable Company Is likelv to occur soon. Mr.
Chandler stated that there Is not tbe
slightest foundation in fact for such a
statement. When asked If some action
had not been lately taken which will remove the active competition hitherto
existing, and If there is not some identity
of Interest between the companies, he replied: "There is no identity of interest
what i ver. The two properties are wholly
distinct and just as sharply competitive
as ever; neither has anv interest in tlie
other directly or indirectly, and it is the
design of tne owners of the Postal property to so i-ontinne, otherwise they would
have accepted the methods designed to
injure rather than protect telegraph business, as others have done, whose purpose has been to force a sale or lease of
their property."
HOTEL   BURNED.
Muir, Mich., April 10— The fire which
originated in the Daken hotel this morning came pretty near wiping out this city.
As it was thirty-five residences snd business places were destroyed. The town

done to control the flames. Manv of the
contents of buildings burned were saved,
however, and the streets for blocks were
lined with household goods and store
stocks. Ionia was wired for help, but
assistance did not arrive until too late.
Loss cannot be estimated.

sympathy with the bereaved family. On

placed close to the grave, and while the
mourners fortned themselves In a circle
around it, the Rev. Jfr. McLeod read the
burial service in a most pathetic manner.
The coffin Waa then lowered into its last

—THE— Running  n little daily  newspaper in a
little town, with little facilities .to do anything, either in the shape of work or news,
is no sinecure. The editor often grows
despondent, the reporter bilious, and the
"devil" mad. Vet we plod along, and
nitersome fashion or other, manage to
"gut there." We wait patiently for the
good time that is coming, when the town
shall assume the proportions of ncity;
'when the city shall expa.ii!, and from
, b.ingan acorn shall develop into a inigh-
j .3'oak. And so we grow weary and grayer
each day waiting for the "good timo" tn

In choosing between home made and for-! dill, accomplished and a labor done.
eign made material, buyers have  to consider two things—price and quality. There
are many citizens who are willing to pay
more for home  made   machinery   and
. goods, home material, etc, that they need
in order that thereby their neighbors and
fellow citizens may be benefitted, nnd in
this they are not only neighborly, but
wise,    for  they    profit   as   well     as
others by the money thus kept at  home.
Quolitv, however, is a different matter. Tt
cannot be reasonably expected  thnt  the
merchant or mechanic will pay the highest prices for comparatively poor goods,
far lees take chances with home material,
that he has reason to think is inferior to
that  manufactured  elsewhere.   If local!
manufactories can offer productions which
are just as good as any manufactured else-'
where, they have a right to ask people to :
buy them, even if they cost more.   But if
they cannot guarantee  as good quality
then they have no right to  demand  dis-
crimination in their favor.    Let our   peo- j
pie think this matter over and they will
arrive at the only  ultimate conclusion— j
that it pays to patronize home industries. I

ion of the question whether the wrecked
steamers at Samoa, had coal, and it not,
why not. It is safe to say that if they
lacked coal it was not the fault of their ■
commanders. The Trenton could carry
887 tons, which she could have used up
in two days if she had tried. The total
bunker capacity of the Vandalia was 150
tons, and of the Nipsic 182. These figures
sufficiently show why the supply of fuel on
a distant station was always liable to run
short.

Locations for residences and business sites
men go to Seattle and other towns In the
territory, expecting to get work in some
of the numerous enterprises set on foot,
and after arriving they find "ten men to
one job,"   In fact there are  "too many
men there for tho work to be done and
that the system of writing up the Sound
country is one so devoid of real truth,  so'
characterized by high flown bosh descrip-
tions that largo numbers  are  misled by
the idea of its being a good place for the
workingman to start in, and accordingly
come here only to be disappointed. There
i. nothing to make Seattle or Tacoma any- j
thing but small prosperous seaports,  al-!
ways more  or   less controlled by Snn'
Francisco,  and   advise  workinguien to
get posted before they pull up stakes and >
leave California to come here,"
Tbe curious fact that Sir Edwin Ar-'
nold, the well known author of "The 1
Light of Asia," never had his photograph
taken until last month will probably lead
bibliophiles and collectors to secure copies
of this picture. Arnold is said to have a !
strong and nt the same time a pleasing
face, so that the admirers of his works
will suffer no disappointment at sight of
his portrait. George Eliot, on tlie other
hand,, shewed her Btrong common sense
by refusing during her lifetime to have
any portrait or photograph taken for 2011-
eral circulation. Her face was so homely
as to l>o repellant, am' not even the power
revealed in its hareli features could save
it from making a disagree.u1- inprcssion.

Manitoba had a .eaTy snow storm last

that it was actually necMsary to put out

throughout the province. It strikes us
that • nice, warm rain with alternating
sunshine would answer the same purpose and be far more prtfer_ li'.e. But, of

Qbi.mii
[From oar Special Correspondent.]
Texada, Headquarters of Courirr,
Gheat Eastern Lode, Aran. 9, '89.
Your correspondent made tin early
start this morning, with H. James as
guide, intent on making a thorough
tour of inspection of the claims owned
by the Invincible Company in this
vicinity.
The first lode I visited was the
Great Eastern. This lode was discovered by the outcrop, near the edge
of James Lake. It is running northeast from about the centre of the lake
shore. A tunnel is being run into the
mountain from the outcrop. When
work was first begun the lode was only
5 feet in .width but at a distance of 20
feel, to which the tunnel is now run,
the vein shows a «idth of 8 feet at the
face with good solid walls. This lode
seems to be gradually widening and is
what one would call a well defined
ledge. The quartz is a light grey,
carrying pyrites of iron and copp.-r;
galena also been occasionally found in
small quantities. On one side of the
ledge can be seen a streak of white
decomposed quartz, which my guide
informed me was similar to that found
in the Golden Slipper, lately bonded
to a Vancouver syndicate, for the sum
of $50,000. I broke off a piece o f
this quartz which I shall bring down
with me when I return. It is very rich
looking rock, and contains native, or
virgin silver in a crystallized form. I
consider the company very fortunate in
being owners of so promising a- ledge,
and should not be surprised at any
time to* hear of some very rich strikes
being made on the lode. The next
claim visited was the Nanaimo Bay.
The cropout of this ledge was first discovered by the uprooting of a tree at
the bottom of a canyon, and it is at
that point where they have commenced
a tunnel which has been run into the
lode i$ feet where it is a feet wide,
but above and beyond where the work
has been prosecuted can easily be discerned, the lode which can be traced
for a considerable distance on the surface showing a width of 4 feet. This
lode carries large quantities of
Bulphurets and galena, and is destined
to be one of the Invincible Company's
best claims on account of the galena it
contains. This claim runs almost
parallel with the Great Eastdrn. A.
Richardson's claim, the Arion, is running very near at hand but somewhat
pinched by its close proximity to the
Nanaimo Boy and King Solomon lodes,
making his claim describe an acute
angle. I saw his stakes, bearing date
of March 13th. The claim is a good
one. The : next lode i_ the Welcome
Home, also the property nf the Invincible Company. The :...face in__i<a-4
tions of this lode arc' unlike all others
. so far visited. This claim wis located 1
through the discovery of flour quartz on
the (Sulfa*-. This quartz being gold
bearing was accepted ai tuffi-iem evi
dence of' thc existence of the lode,
.nd a shaft being sunk revealed the
lode at a depth of four feet, at which
depth the vein showed a width of two
feet, but upon the shaft being sunk
four feet deeper, and reaching a total
depth of eight feet
THK I.ODF. EXHIBITED
a -width of $6 feet with favorable indications of its spreading out to
a much greater width further down.
The quartz is pitching almost straight
down—and to use a mining phrase- -
is "standing on end." .This quart-
reminds one of the Colorado auriferous
piartz, and as it is looking better as a
greater depth is attained, I am of the
opinion that good results must come
from a further prosecution of work on
thc same. This claim is staked off
north and south, and the ledge is running almost in Ihe same direction,
though probably a point or two east of
north. There is no mistaking the
nature of this quartz, and I consider it
to lie a good prospect. Later on I
shall speak of the biggest find of native
gold yet discovered on the Island, and
as ihis lode is only three miles from the
last bonanza find, it is very likely a
sister lode, or an extension of the
same. The Maud S. lode belonging
to the same company was next visited.
The ledges of this claim—for there are
four of them within the boundary of
the stakes—run north-east, and all of
them can bo traced throughout their
entire length. The nature of the
quartz on the claim is of a somewhat
similar nature to that found on the Nanaimo Bay, though more scattering,
the claim shows four distinct lodes
iveraging three feet each in thickness.
A tunnel has been run into one of the
leads a distance of nine feet, which
clearly defines the lode, the walls are
bluish colored porphyritic rock, which
is the best indication of rich quartz,
porphayry nearly always carrying within
its embrace crystals of other minerals.
Two canyons separate this claim from
the others already mentioned.which are
convincing proof of a series of continuous and rich ledges extending
through the entire holdings of the Invincible Company's property, the
vastness of whose enormous wealth is
now established beyond doubt.
Some may say that yonr correspondent is trying to boom this particular
company's property that they may thin
be enabled to sell out to advantage,
and to all of tuch he would say—do
net be to too hasty in your censure,
and withhold your criticisms until
further reports come to hand, and in
this connection I wish to say right here,
that not only shall I give reports from
the above company's holdings, but
also from all claims accessible, and
possible to be found. It is also my
purpose to get at facts for the purposes
of this, and other communications to
the people through the medium of the
Courikr, and I shall send nothing
misleading, but on the contrary shall
state only that which comes under my
own observation, and to that end shall
only stutr that which I know to be true
from having seen it myself. I shall
speak still further of the Invincible
Company's property as it is more convenient to classify them as I go along,
thc largest number of claims being in a
body. The Tiger lode was my next
stopping place and is found at the edge
of a flat piece of ground—once a part
of the lake, but now covered
WITH HARD HACK,
causing a division of and forming one
lake into two. About 100 yards from
the edge of the big lake the stake is lo
be seen abutting on the west end of
the King Solomon terminal post. This
claim has not been worked, but being
adjacent to the ott.er claims which
look so promising, will probably form
no exception, and also contain a fair
share of the precious metals. We are
now on the King Solomon claim. The
ledge crops out about the centre of the
claim and has been worked in two
places. A tunnel has been run into
the cropout running in a southerly
direction. Ihe drift is eight feet into
the lode, which shows fifteen feet in
width. The quartz has every indication of carrying gold. Though: it is
probably deeper down on the ledge, it
can be traced on the surface a thousand
feet, and is the heaviest rock I have so
far examined, and yet the softest and
easiest worked of .ny I have so far
seen. On the bluff opposite, just
across the lake can be seen innumerable stakes, the claims of Benj. Baker,
Robt Aitken and many other Na-
naimoites being reprepresented. In
fact the whole country hereabouts presents a bewildering net work of stakes.
It is not, however, my purpose to dwell
on those which have not been worked,
unless some special features
make th.m worth chronicling.
We break camp in the morning to go over
the mountain where other t-lnims are
located, and it is (.ith many regrets that I
isive up my present headquarters for hore
111111 quite comfortably situated when one
tn lies into consideration the roughness of
tlio country, for hero I have a good fire to
sit by, and .1 pit lamp to give me light io
do my writing, for yoa mast know that
all my writing must be done at nighl after
tramping and taking notes throughout the

Dr. J.  Collis   Brownei,
CHLORODYNE.
THE ORIGINAL and ONLV GENUINE.
Advice to Invalids—If you wi.h to otnafa
onlet refreshing sleep, free from headache,
relief from pain and anguish, to calm and
assuage the weary achings of protracted
disease, invigorate the nervous meOia, and
regulate the circulating systems of the body,
you wilkprovide yourself wilh tnat marvelous remedy discovered liy 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
most wonderful and valuable remedy ever
discovered.
CHLORODYNE is the best remedy
known for Coughs, Consumption, Bronchitis,
Asthma,
CHLORODVNE acts like a charm in
Diarrhrea, and is Ihe only specific in Cholera
and Dysentery.
j    CHLORODVNE effectually cuts short >U
'attacks  of Epilepsy,   Hysteria,   TalpltatitB
: and Spasms.
CHLORODVNE is Ihe only palliative in
I Neuralgia,    Rheumatism,    Gout,   Conctt.
Toothache, Meningitis, Ac, &c.
From Symes & Co., Pharmaceutics!
Chemists Medical Hall, Simla, January 5th,
t88o; To J. T. Davenport, Esq., 33 Great
Russell Street, Bloomsbury, London, Desr
Sir.—We embrace this opportunity of con.
gratulating you upon lhc wide-spread repu.
tation Ihis justly esteemed medicine, Dr. J.
Collis Browne's Chlorodyne, has earned fi r
itself, not only in Ilindostan, but all over
the Exst. As a'remedy of general utility,
we much question whether a lietter is im.
ported into thc country, and we shall I e
glad lo hear of ils finding a place in eveiy
Anglo-Indian home. The olhcr brands, wa
arc happy lo say, ore now relegated to tha
native basaars, and judging from their salet
we fancy their sojurn there will be but
evanescent. Wc could multiply instances
infinitum of Ihe extraordinary efficacy of
Dr. Collis Browne's Chlorodyne in Diarrhce,
nnd 2nd Dysentery Spasms, Cramps,
Neuralgia, the Vomiting of Pregnancy, and
oi general Sedative, that have oaasrred
untk c our personal observation during many
years, In Choleraic Diarrhoea, and even if
the more terrible forms of Cholera itself, «e
have witnessed its controlling power. We
have never used _ny other form of this
medicine than Collis Browne's, from a firm
conviction that it is decidedly the best, antl
also from a sense of duty we owe to the pra\
fession antl the public,. as we nre of the
opinion tnat the substitution of any other
than Colli* Browne's, is A bELIBERA"E
BREACH OF FAITH ON THE PART
OF TIIE CHEMIST TO PRESCRIBE
AND PATIENT ALIKE. We are sir,
faithfully yours, Symes & Co., Members of
thc I'harm. Society of Great Britain, His
Excellancy the Viceroy's Chemists.

No News From Lonsdale—Lord Lonsdale was expected to take passage on the
steamship Cerona on her present trip
down from Alaska, but Captain Carroll
reports that at Sitka nothing had been
heard of his Lordship.
A Dearth nr News.—Local news is
never very plentiful in Nannimo, but yesterday there was a denrth which was felt.
Our "devil" suggested that if we could
spare him "four bits" he would go out nntl
kill somebodv antl then write nn the account. We didn't want news thai bad so
we declined.
For Texada.—Thc steamer Rustler arrived from Texada vesterday morning anil
left at 10 a. 111. for the same place. Among
her passengers were Dr. Bredemeyer, and
H. K. McKee of Vancouver. As stated
in yesterday's issue the doctor and Mr.
McKee go to examine the properties lately
landed by the Vancouver syndicate.
More Water.—J. W. Stirtan, manager
ol the Nanaimo Water Works Co. returned yesterday from the Nanaimo river,
whither he had been in company with E.
Friest, C. E.. in order to find a feasible
route, by which to bring an additional
supply of water to the city. Mr. Priest
will Submit a report to the water company
showing the best route (or bringing water
into town.
Wouldn't Sau,.—Three thousand dollars were offered for a quartz claim on
Texada Island yesterdav. There is a
shsft sunk on the property to the depth
of fifteen feet and there is some promising
ore in sight. The owner refused the
pffer point blank. Right here we want to
say that our claim has so far returned ns a
number of "Irish dividends." But then,
some peeple aro horn lucky.
A Qpikt Day.—It is estimated that
fully five hundred people left on the various tratnr for Victoria yesterday raorn-
Ir .I attend the funeral of the late Hon.
rtobt. Dunsmuir, an.! about ttw, Hundred
left on Monday evening's special. The
city to-day presented a deserted appearance, nearly all of the business places being closed, and the Whole town was
quieter even than on a' Sunday. A good
many from Wellington also went down on
the train yesterday,
8. 8. Corona.—The steamship Corona
Bailed for Fort TownsemJ yesterday afternoon, The Corona is a new vessel, admirably fitted up, every care being taken
to provide for the safety and comfort of
passengers and crew. The staterooms,
cabins, etc., are models of neatness and
elegance. Tho steamer is provided with
electric bells, while the electric light
lightens the darkest corners of tho steamer. Captain Carroll, the commander, is
a genial and wholesouled gentleman,
while first-officer Cheney, is most courteous and obliging. Tlie Corona will go
on the Arctic excursion route permanently about the 17th of June next.
He Declined.—A man standing on the
corner of Skinner and Commercial streets
last night about seven o'clock called another man a liar. The other man was on
the opposite side of the street, The first
mnn called to the second to come over antl
see how quickly he would put the
"kibosh" on him; in other words, how
soon he would wipe the street with him.
The second man started over to accommo-
Ihe travelling public.

Victoria vesterday was a figment of the
brain. It was absolutely without foundation, unnecessary nhd uncalled for, and
quite a laMe tiUmber availed themselves
ot the privilege of paying their last tribute
of respect to the memory of the deceased
gentleman,
In tre Dock.—The steamer Danube
and the bark Robert Kerr went Into the
dry dock at Ksquimalt nt 0 o'clock yesterday morning. The two boats at onetime
do hot nearly fill the dock, nhich will
dispel an idea held by some that it is not
large enough for almost any boat on the
Pacific Ocean. The Itoliert Kerr's hull is
literally alive with barnacles, and general
appearances intlieate that the vessel needs
extensive repairs.
* Xf.fSERMEN as Pedestrians.—The second special train from Victoria last night

at Chemainus an hour nnd a half from the
fact that no water could be obtained for

Tiik Sea Serfent.—Capt. Rail, who
ar. ived In town last evening from San
Juan Island In a canoe, reports having
seen the only real sea serpent on the Pacific Coast. Monday afternoon aboqt 8
o'clock the sea being smooth, just a light
breeze blowing, and the Captain snugly
eseonced in the stern of the canoe, lanily
enjoying n pipe, and visions of sea serpents and other monsters of tbe sally
deep being far distant from his mind, he
was startled by the foaming of the water
just in front of bis little vessel. Hastily
looking up ho saw not twenty feet distant the tail of what he believes to he a
veritable sea serpent lashing the water to
a foam, He did not see the head' of the
monster, it being submerged in the ocean.
The animal, or whatever it might-be
called, after disporting Itself alongside and
in front of the canoe, suddenly sank ont
of sight nnd was no more seen. The Captain states that the caudal appendage of
the serpent was fully twenty-five feet
long and glistened in the sun like burnished armor. Captain Rail vouches for
the veracity of the statement, and says he
is ready to make affidavit to its truth fulness.
