■The Irish revolutionary party expelled
from France have just held a, meeting at
Mulls, at which all the chiefs except James
Sicveus were present. Considerable violence
um displayed against Michael Flannery, the
so-called Secretary of the Irish Dynamite
l>ir*-etory, who was accused of embezzlement, and aeveral of the speakers declared
that the Irish revolutionaries were making
themselves the laughing stock of Continental
sects, aud that the funds were applied tn
tiroviil-. comfortably for patriots unattached.
It was resolved thatsomcthingmust be done,
ami that they must meet again at Antwerp.
The manner In which the grass is mown
t-i a matter of prime importance, and in
m*ny instances there is plenty of room
for improvement. In some cases the turf
Is cut too close, and the roots thereby too
much exposed to tho heat of the sun for the
preservation of a fresh aud bright appearance
during the droughty weather. On the
other band, allowing thegrass to attain a con-
■MorabU height, and then cutting close is
atill more injurious. The best process for
keeping the turf in good condition in to Bet
the machine rather higher! than is the custom, and to use it more frequently. Especially is this practice desirable in dry,
hot weather.

and while travelling do not attempt to fight

The Muncipal Council of Paris has again
entered upon tho work of renaming the
atrsets of that city, in order to bring them
mors closely into harmony with the present
political opinions of the people. Under the
empire a*number of the Paris streets which
bore names too closely associated with the
republican post Were altered, and now
the republican municipality propose to eliminate these names from the directory, substituting for them titles more in accordance
with their ideas of men and measures deserving of immortality. For example, Rue
Royate is to be called Rue de la Concorde;
Rue St. Dominique will hereafter be Rue
D'anton. Lenoir, who revived the cotton
manufactories of France after the revolution

name Delescluxe may live in the future. In
the same way Darboy, the name of the Arch-
rMsbop murdered by the Commune, is

lUdvitius. For the new streets there ure the
names of Louis Blinc, Dcsmoulius, Spinoza,
and St. Just.
"It Is very interesting to watch the ex-
Sression upon the faces of owners of horses
uring important races," says Vanity Fair.
MT/)rd Rosebery selects a choice cigar and
proceeds to eat it. The Duke of Westminster tries to look as-if he were interested in
anything or anybody except the horses.
Lord Cadogan retires to an iusolated spot
from whence ho can watch the proceedings
unmolested, and apparently studies the
mechanism of his race glosses. Mr. Craven
walks about as if he had arrived by acci-
fftn.t, and'wondered w hat it all meant. Mr.
Leopold de Rothschild selects the critical
moment in a race for appropriating and summarily devouring the choicest articles of
food at hand. Lord Alington turns the color
ot a sheet and forcibly suggests a rough passage across the Channel. Sir John Astley
is always pleased, and greets fortune with a
brood gnn, whatever happens, although
occasionally he is forced to dissimulate.
The Duchess of Montrose invariably seeks
solitude, and' if successful, emerges like a
Jack-in-the-box from some totally unexpected quarter. Lord Hartington- is never
pleased, and views the proceedings with an
expression of countenance worthy of Tor-
quemada himself. The Prince of Wales
although unsucocsful, is always iinperturable
and, no matter what happens, has always
a kind smile and a genial remark for all his
cent. Eight cases are mentioned hy
the committee, the ligures-of which are
startling. Incomes of £500 and £350
have fallen to nil, £700 has fallen to
£240, £600 t.o £i:J0, £000 to £250, £500
to £180 £180 to'XOO- and £170 to £00.
The annual charges on most of these
incomes still further reduce them. The
nbo"e-mentioned income of £240 has to
beara charge of £247, and another income of nil has a charge of £61.
Beer is becoming fashionable in
Paris. Saloons in which it ie sold are
called brasseries, and most of them aro
handsomer than the wine shops. One
establishment is a beautiful reproduction of a French inn of two cen-
tuiies ago, except thut the fittings are
elaborately One. A new idea is to
costume the waiters picturesquely
grotesquely. In one place they wear
the uniform of the French Academy,
and the drinkers jocoKoly address them
by tho names of Academicians. Such
cries as, "Hi, Sardon, two beers!" are
In many towns in Scotland where
street railroads are in operation, instead of charging a stated fare from
which there is no deviation on account
of the distance the passenger travels,
the car routes are laid off into districts.
When a man "vis on a car he pays one
penny, which takes him tothe end of
that district; then the cmtductoi collects
another penny, nnd continues at each
new district until the terminus ofthe
line is reached. By this menus a
passenger only pays for the distance he
rides, and is thus encouraged to enter
the cars when he has but a short distance to go.
Compound surnames are quite common in England, being readily obtainable by royal license. As a ru'e, tbe
later name is used as a prefix. For example, the descendants of Edward
Harcourt, Archbishop of York, who was
a younger son ofthe first Baron Vernon
assumed the compound surname of
Vernon-Hurcourt. Again, Sir Alexander Fuller-A eland-Hood was pluin
Mr. Hood, for he hud not then succeeded to bis baionetcy, when In 1840
he married the daughter ofSir Peregrine
Fuller-Palmer-Ad And. On his marriage
be assumed the name of Fnller-Aclund.
The uncle ofthe present Lord Vernon
tlie Hon. William John Bariose*Warren*
Vena bles-Vernon, enjoys four surnames.    So does Lord Tbuilow.
Two iiidianu in a village near Quebec were
recently discussing the form uf the earth.
One affirmed th-:t it wan round because men
had travelled in a straight line and come
back to the same place. To this it was replied that men are apt to travel in circles, as
they often do when lost; then it was urged
that white men said eo, and they know more
than Indians; but it was answered, white
men often lied, as the Induns very well
knew. A practical philosopher solved the
wlmlo difficulty by driviuu 11 stake into the
ground and plueiugau apple on it at night.
In the morning the apple was still there,
to his great satisfaction; whereas, he said,
if the earth had revolved in the night the
apple would have fallen off.
The Pall Malt Gazette thus assails the
passion of its countrymen fur decorations:
"Lord Kinibeilcy is to be gartered, and
Lord Eversley and Lord Shororooke are to
receive the (-.rand CrosB of tho Order of the
Bath. Do those old gentlemen really care
for theae gewgaws? We suppose they must
or they would not receive them, but is it not
anextraordinary illustration of the childishness of man thaj, aged andcxpcrienccd statesmen, who have shared in the Government
of the Empire, should in their declining years
be soothed and solaced by a bit of ribbon, a
cross, or a star? But as men are infants to
the last, pleased with a rattle, tickled with
a straw, it is one of the great advantages of
our monarchist regime that we can reward
them with trifles light as air, instead of resorting to the grosser and more direct means
of corruption in vogue in countries where
the reward for political service iscash down."
The natives of Benares are suffering the
results of monkey worship. The licensed
beasts plunder right aud left, they invade
cake stand*, and make raids in fruit st <res,
and no man may say them nay. Tlfe Brahmins of Benares have at last decided that
the monkey must go. A pious old Rajah
offered an asylum across the river in the
grounds of his palace. They were deported
thither in boat loads. But they took it as a
day's picnic. For a steady life they profer-
ed the town. So when the shades of night
began to fall they went down to the wharf
where boats were always plying to Benares
and without showing any tickets or any nonsense of that kind deadheaded themselves
home again. Then the Brahmins sought to
make a contract, witb the English railway
to convey these descendants of Hanuman,
the monkey god, to Sahftrmipoor. They
wished to send 10,000 to begin with. And
the company is considering the question, but
incline to decline it.
The French prima donna Carvalbo has
bidden farewell to the public on the stage of
the Opera Comique. She sang Marguerite
in "Faust." She has been before the public
thirty-five years, during seventeen of which
from 1850 to 1867, she created fifteen distinct roles. The French theatrical critics
arc asking where her successor is to be found
and all answer with regret that ao far none
has appeared.

North-west, has been conviaed, and is

Uul in a country like ihis where politic-.
direct justice, there is no knowing what
sort of justice any man miy get.
The majority of ihe men of ihis Province are full grown green-horns It was
amusing to hear a crowd of ihem applauding Baker and Shakespeare on
Monday night, at Victoria, and thanking
them for the law which is not to exclude
the Chinese. According to lhe provisions of this delusion called .law, any man
who can pay $50 may import his slave
and keep him. Any sort of nonsense is
- good enough for a crowd in this Province.
The Provincial Secretary was up the
country lately with the little that was lefl
ofthe $25,000 given to him by his pals
for seciet service. Al Mount Lehman
he relcrred lo the reports circulated by
the Guardian, and wiped his eyes with
a while handkerchief after saying, "the
editor has vilified my character." In the
handkerchief he had an onion, but the
tears which he hoped to use as capital
would not flow, and he merely displayed his want of skill.
The wreck of the enterprise created a
sens ition at Chinatown, Victoria. When
the Celestials heard that two rich Chinamen were in the hulk, under water, tliey
roared and raved, and rushed with axes
10 ihe water's edge, sh niting, "Let us
secure the money." By this display ol
friendship the long-tailed knave proved
himself—a man.
•The Colonist says: "If Victoria is
protected, the province is safe." The
limes says: "Nanaimo, Burrard Inlet
nnd New Westminster must have protection, 100." But what either says on
Ihe subject is not worth a row of pins.

On the 3rd  inst-  Toronto was  in

relinery on the Esplanade, and burned
with great fury for five hours. Several
fine warehouses wero consumed, and a
few small ships at the wharves sh red
the same fate.
Messrs. McDonald, Graham and McNeil have explored Vancouver Island.
• he sublime scenery of San Juan bay
attracted iheir notice, and they sailed
(heir plunger into the inlet These gentlemen are described as ■'•prospectors,"
bin ihey are "pirates," anrl covet their
ne ghbore goods. You can imagine how
their teeth watered when you read ihis
extract from their description of the bay:
"It is a perfect Paradise, or ra her possesses all the natural advantages \3 make
ii one. It contains ten thousand acres,
an I i< occupied by a harmless, hospitable tribe of about twelve families; but
not one acre has been cultivated. It is
the most charming spot in the province,
within 70 miles of Victoria, and would
support 150 families; but it is an Indian
reservation, and of course the Saxon
race are debarred from dwelling on these
rich and fertile God's acres."
McDonald, Graham and McNeil are
three audacious sinners; ihey are not
.-i-.il lined to say, "we covet our neigh
but s triads." The seals, the dog-fish
n'l I the game are abundant, and the
three wh le burglars will visit the place
a,-iin; but—they ought to be escorted
by the police.
The "Novoe Vremya," in a leading
article said to be inspired by the Ozar
himself, Bays:—"Russia wished to sn-
curo a solid frontier iu contral Asia,
within whieh progressive works of civilization may be carried" on. This is
no rv in hnr possession; she needs no
more; and the risk of war with England is over." The change of ministers
in England has produced a wonderful
change in the tone of Russian newspapers. My Lord of Salisbury says—
"No farthor," and forthwith the Rub:
sian discovers ho has all the land he
wants in Asia. That is a sign of the
The "Pall Mall Gazette" has stirred
up the mud and the result is an ocean
of dirt floating all over the world.
Man is making wonderful efforts to
prove that he is only a monkey. The.
art of the tailor conceals the man; and
the milliner decorates tbe woman.
These artists deserve applause; without
their aid there would be no great men:
no beautiful women. The ideas conveyed to the mind by the words "great,"
"noble," "beautiful," are mere delusions. The modern man is only a maggot tearing off the beautiful cloak in
which his insignificance was concealed
by Christianity.
John Bright bos given the Parnellites a severe lecture. He was steadily
in favor of "justice to Ireland," and if
we may judge by the opinions of the
Irish press, the whole nation regrets
the loss of Bright's friendship. The
desertion of the Parnellites from the
ranks of the Liberals provoked the
hostility of the great commoner.
Statistics published two weeks ago
by the Indian Government prove beyond a doubt that English rule is a
blessing to India. It is the lightest
taxed country in the world; the tax
per capita is ninety cents. The extension of railways will save the people
from death by starvation.    Seven hun
dred and fifty miles of railroad are
mode every year, and a company has
been subsidized by Isjid grants to make
four thousand miles of railroad next
year. The firm represented by John,
Pat and Sandy is the greatest under
the sun, because it is the famous protector of beautiful Justice.
The "Standard," which is the old and
trusted or_;an of the great Conservative party, attacks Lord Randolph
Churchill in a leading article that cuts
keenly. The writer says of his lordship:—"Hn has bi'en pulled with admirable assiduity by a clique, which is
always ready to cry 'prodigious' when
ever he opens his mouth. But his
blunders and bluster have inspired fear
in the bosom of his party. He has
boon ovirra'ed, and if his pranks lie
encouraged sny longer he will smash
the Government and the Conservative
party. We are roudy to follow Salisbury, but we will not permit this over
grown schoolboy to lead. He has not
knjwledge sufficient to fathom his own
ignorance of statesmanship."
A telegram from Berlin containing
the ossence of a leading article published in the "North German Gazette'1
has created quite a sensation in London
and Paris. The writer says:—"The
vast increase of French cavalry along
the frontier is a menace, but it is also
a good and sufficient warning. France
is only awaiting an honorable chance
to attack Germany. The desire of
Frenchmen for revenge offers every
politician in France the means of swaying his countrymen. France is strong
and quite prepared to measure swords
with Germany. If she could secure
Russia as an ally she would begin at
once, but it is quite possible that she
is prepared to look for glory single-
handed and alone. Germany must not
be caught napping."
Today, in Westminster Abbey, lire
death of Gen. Grant will becommemor
aied by Divine Service. His Koyal
Highness the Prince of Wales and the
Duke of Connaught will be represented
by equerries; lhe Duke of Anjvle and
John Bright will be absent, bui they
have written letters expressing their rc-
grei at inability to attend." Thai is news
by telegraph irom Washington, and we
are glad to hear the leader of the Northern armies wiil be honored by a
solemn service in the grand old Abbey.
President Cleveland has appointed
a son of O'Donovan Rossa to be an
inspector of the Navy Yard
At San Francisco on Friday an inquest was held on the body of a lady
named Flint, who practised as a physician, and the jury of fourteen delivered
three verdicts. Six declared that death
was caused by accident; one said the
ady committed suicide; six reurned a
a vcnlicl of wilful murder against persons unknown, and one declared lhat he
could not form an opinion. The whole
affair is a mystery, because the police
are ignorant and careless.
While testimony was being laken on
Tuesday, at San Francisco, in the case
of Sharon vs. Hill, Judge David Terry,
counsel for the defense, struck the attorney engaged on Sharon's side, and he
drew a revolver; bui Judge Teiry immediately drew another, and as he is
well known to be a cool hand ai pistol
practice.his opponent fled scream inr* in'O
the hall. In a few years more the pistol
will be the Lord Chief Justice of ihe
United States. In a civilized country
the pistol would not be tolerated in pub
lie Court. The man who uses it there
is worse lhan a burg'ar, and the Judge
who permi'S such practise in his Court
is the accomplice of assassins.
Sarah Althea Hill, plaintiff in (he
Sharon divorce case, his announced that
she will, in a short time, beiiin to lecture all over the State on the subject of
the recent decision in the SupremeCourt
She knows something of human nature,
and that the multitude are always willing
to go and see a sirange animal; but if
Sarah wished to 'make a big thing of

travel in a cage.
Dr. O'Dpnnell is "stumping" the

He can roar, and may be elected, because ihe capitalists have persecuted the
people. Nero fiddled while Rome was
burning, but in those days the people
had no power, no repeating rifles.
Fiddling with a great national grievance
now is evidence of insanity, and the
sooner a law is made to rid the whole
continent of the Chinese, the better. If
such a law is delayed, the cranks and
crazy men ofthe O'Donnell samp will
become masters, and brute force will
take the place of justice.
The ominous calm that prevails
throughout Europe, reminds one strongly of the signs that precede great storms.
Strange to say, the secret societies, the
Nihilists, Anarchists, Socialists—all
all appear to be awaiting the approaching cataclysm ihat is to carry them on
its surface to a temporary triumph or
to swallow them up. No one can be
deceived with the profound quietude
now reigning everywhere, as a symptom
of continued peace; in fact, all the
world is affected with a sense of some
impending dangrr that may burst upon
them   at   any  moment.    Perhaps  no monster, shining so resplendent!v
more striking instance of this feeling
can be adduced, than the fact that,
during a time like the present, of universal peace, the merchants of London
have determined to take measures for
the protection of that great port from
an invading foe; notwithstanding that
the great systi'in of fortification, in
progress now for many years, was supposed to thoroughly coverall approaches to the Britisli capital. Tim manufacture of implements of destruction is
proceeding night and day in overy
European state; armies are being in
un-ased, and every newspaper has one
or more items touching the prepare
tions for wor. The navies of Europe
are morn formidable than ever before,
and the weapons are more dreadful in
tim havoc they are likely to mulct- in
action. Diplomacy has fallen from its
former high position as the medium
through which nations treated with
nations iu the language of honorable
gentlemen; it is now only a course of
deception, with which no one is deceived but the old class of diplomatists,
who have now nearly passed away.
They were gentlemen who accepted each
word as being the bond of a nation,
and never said anything that they were
not prepared to answer for with their
lives. Ali this is changed. Kings and
Emperors meet and embrace, and the
more striking the appearance of affection, the greater the probability of on
immediate quarrel. Statesmen meet
statesman with the most profuse urbanity, and practise deception with the
most studied politeness. It is ridiculous to suppose that such a state of
things can go on forever. The burden
of taxation upon the people, combined
with the scanty means of livelihood to
be obtained in the great centres of population, drive men to the ranks of
Nihilists, Anarchists, and other secret
associations, formed, not for the redress
of their grievances, but for the destruction of some one, or some thing,
which they conceive is in some way the
cause of their misery. Nature seems
to provide for an excess of population,
either by wars, plagues or famines. Of
tho three, wars are decidedly the best;
many are killed and wounded in battle,
but the horrible scenes produced bv
plagues or famines are never parallelled,
even in coses of great carnage. People
who have nothing else to do, or professional dealers in sentiment, may inveigh against war; but it is not only
the best way of fulfilling ono of nature's
laws, but always brings to the surface
the ablest men and evokes the noblest
feelings of humanity. That war will
come soon we have not the slightest
doubt, and doleful anticipations or mis
directed zeal in denouncing it will-not
arrest it for a moment. The bust way
is to make every preparation to meet
it, either as a combatant or a trader,
always guided by a feeling of patriotism und a readiness to do an individual
share in whatever position a man may
be placed, towards the success of his
country. We do not think that many
months will pass before the first shot
'8 fired that will embroil the whole of
Europe, for every nation, big or little,
will be compelled to join in the fray.

Every man creates for himself an
object of pursuit, be it fame, glory, or
gold. The vast majority of men are
poor; hence, gold iB tho idol that thoy
worship. Men of small minds seek
gold, for tho power it would give thorn
to lord it over their fellow men, and
the means at their disposal to buy their
way into positions in society for which
nature never intended them. Honest
John has always worshiped gold, and
he seems to think that there is no
sacrifico too groat for its attainment.
It is the ignis fatuus that has led him
deep into the mud—but what matter I
If he could only seize it he eould buy
new clothing. He is always discovering it perched on some awkward spot
very difficult to get at. Great, ugly
obstacles have to be surmounted, or
nasty sloughs have to be traversed. But
he fixes his eyes on his idol and makes
straight towards it, regardless of all
the difficulties in the way. He has
soen this Will-o' the-wisp in the Cariboo
mining company, in Bentinck Arm, in
a marble quarry, at Emory, aud in
quite a number of other places which
we will not at this time mention; bat
the mocking fiend has never displayed
himself so brilliantly as at Coal Harbor, and oommensurately the obstacles
that separated honest John from the
alluring sprite were the most appalling
Nothing daunted, he has traversed the
most noisome gutters and swamps,
overcoming difficulties that would have
terrified any man nst absolutely lost to
every consideration but that of attain
ing his object. The pitfalls and rugged
mountains were alarming enough to
look at, but by perseverance, the result
of one idea, he had climbed to a pinnacle whence he viewed the deceiving
dazzle his vision snd lead him to believe
that he had at last arrived sufficiently
near to clutch his only love and press
it to his bosom. So firmly convinced
was he in this belief that he had s
fitting mansion erected to receive the
shining god and himself, that he might
worship ii, and invite his friends to do
the same. Alas! for all human hopes
»n-l desires; they srs born iu weakness
and die in coufusion. Honest John
put out his hand to seize the beautiful prize, when quick! presto! it is
gone far beyond his reach, separated
from him by ol smoles tenfold those
which he has so far, overcome. The
last flight of the deluding spectre was
ciused by that Brutus, Van Honie,
who will certainly be the death of
honest John before he has done with
him. He has already caused him to do
whai may involve his impeachment,
and the reward is as far of. as ever.
It may lie asked -"Why do not some
of his friends attempt to restrain him?"
if there was any hope of such restraint
being effective. But they well know
that the fascination which his favorite
amusement has for thn gambler, or his
favorire drug for the opium eater, are
but trill- s compared with the infatuation of honest John for his god. His
whole life is entwined around it and
separation will lie death.

For the wclcomo prospect of relief from a
most embarrassing entanglement the British
Foreign Oliice is indebted partly to the
normal effect nf a bold and consistent attitude, by which friends are braced and enemies disconcerted, and partly to the pronounced sympathy of Prince Bismarck for
the new English Premier aud his willingness
to aid by promoting Conservative prestige
in the defeat of Mr. Gladstone at the coming Parliamentary election. These ad von
tages were counted on beforehand, but the
Tories havo hud a stroke of sheer good luck
in the death of the Mahdi, which now seems
to he confirmed. No one familiar with the
purport and history of tbe Messianic idea in
M.in can believe that the outburst of
■Soudancso fanaticism will long outlive ita
author. By dying when the work ullotu-d
by tradition to his rolo wa-r hut begun, Moll uniiiid Ahmed of Mongols is a -olf-lietr-iycd
Impostor in the oytrn of all true Moslems.
According to the prophecy attributed to Mo-
hainnrerl, tlie tcrieatiial mission of the vcit-
a' Ic Mahdi wou d lastfnrevcn seven ur nine
y.-ars, rm I hia conquest of the sartfa would
be symbolized by the proclaim.' ion of his
Mr ssiiibship at Mr-cea. Owing lo his iailure
to satisfy these und many otbor traditional
rei]iiii-ciin..|itrt, the Sou.lrine.se pretender will
at !.<■ 1 be looked upon by his co-religionists
in merely one of the false Mnlnlis, who, ac-
coi'.ling to tiie Prophet, were to pre.e.le
the true redeemer. There ir,, therelorc, hut
little doubt that the . rilijilial authority of
Ottoman Sultan might now be reasserted
without much difficulty in the region of the
upper Nile, should England carry out the
plan r. hich Lord Salisbury is believed to
countenance, of furthering by a subsidy the
despatch of a Turkish expedition.
Hardly less striking ia tlte confidence with
which Kngland for the present seems justi-
fi <1 in viewing the state of things in Alia.
It is now generally recognized that Kussia's
former encroachments upon Afghan territory were encouraged by lhe helpless political isolation nf the Gladstone Government,
which, with the doubtful exception of Italy,
had not a friend upon the Continent. The
Czur's advisers are fully alive to the significance of the changed relations between London and Ih-rIin. Tbey know that Bismarck's
arm, which has just -misathe 1 the path of
England in Egypt, would he quito strong
enough to block Ihe march of Russia on
Herat. It may safely be asserted that during the months intervening before the general election in Great Britain the necessity
of shunning all occasions of collision on the
Afghan border will be sternly impressed on
the Russian commanders, and should the
T ries happen to gain contral of the next
Parliament the outbreak of war would
il .ul.tlosH be a longer time deferred. M. de
Giers it much too shrewd to risk offending
the strongest power la Europe by prematurely snatching at a prize which, if he will
wait a little, may drop into bis hand. As to
the intimate alliance whieh Persia, it is
rumored, desires tu contract with Germany,
this, should It be concluded, would simply
confirm the impression that Bismarck means
to take a hand iu the game for predominance
in Asia. It is plain that German influence
at Teheran would be exerted on behalf of
England ao long as that country's foreign
policy should be moulded by the Tories, but
in the interest of Russia should Mr. Glad ■
stone resume office.—JV. Y. Hun.

Pic-Nic—Early on Thursday last, pursuant to prior appointment that a picnic would
be held in a rustic park near the confluence
of Port Moody Day and North Arm, groups
of people, ranging from prattling infancy to
decreptd age, including a major portion of
gay young m- n and beautiful maidens, could
bave btM stain with well filled baaketa,
wending their way toward tin* boat Undine,
and notu ith.4tanding the rainy aspect of the
weather, nearly sH seciiu.d d-.U*. mined tu
•cather it thrush and have a good time.
About 10 o'clock a. m. the rain actually
began fed datftftd OpOM our f.tir puty, but,
nothing dauptod by »u.;li trifl..a, tha fignal
of departure being given, off we mpad down
the lovely, peaceful bay. Copt. Waterlm-.! ,,
Jr., having (We prcbume) tht BKHl dtitrous
actincn. reached the grounds first, and Im
tbe time thi* most of our party arrived a
jolly camp-fire was blazing up, which was
appropriated to good use in drying our gar-
meuta (Whioh, by the way, were alightly
damp). Dy this tinieCnpt. HtMij. F. Butler
had arrived uith a precious Moop load, tad
the aUfauU boy», afU-r safely landing, loaf
no tune iu erecting a iwinj for tbe lailn■-,,
and anon a second one was in operation.
(.Mimes ami sports ut various kinds were indulged in, until eventually a repast (such as
we shall not attempt to describe, because not
sufficiently gift»d for the task) was spread,
and all ate and drank almost to satiety. By
this time old Sol began to peep out from
behind the clouds, shedding a liaj^o of glory
down through the apertures ofthe foliage
under which our merry-hearted party had
encamped. Whereupon various sports and
amusements were entered into again, with
greater zest than ever, and the woods literally rang with cheery .voices and merry
laughter. Apparently so enchanted the spot
became that the party was loth to depart
from it, but approaching night gave the
wanting to embark for home again, which
was reached without casualty or even a noteworthy incident. In tlio evening a large
number of the party, including others, were
invited to a dance ut Capt. Clarke's which
affair was said to have been equally successful in point of enjoyment. Thus ended a
gala day for Port Moodians.
We clip the following from the Manitoba
Free Press:—
In the Senate, a few days before prorogation, Mr. Mclnnes expressed his conviction
that Mr. Plumb was a "pedantic plebeian."
It is to be inferred from this that Mr. Mclnnes considers himself to bo an "arrog-int
aristocrat." Here, then, we have a direct
official declaration that there are at least two
classes in Canada. There can he no longer
sny doubt on tbe subject. The line has been
drawn with alliterative and unmistakable
distinctness between them. The fact that
Mr. Mclnnes belongs to the latter affords
further evidence of the illimitable possibilities of this Canada of our.1'.
A brother "Mac" of this "arrogant aristocrat" declared iu the House of Commons,
when the Franchise Bill wus under discussion, that one hundred and fifty years ago
tho Highlander of Scotland w^re as' much
savages as the Northwest Indians of to-day.
Tbe grandfather, therefore, or, at the very
farthest, tbe great-grandfather of Senator
Mel une.-;—if the honorable gentleman can
establish any direct claim to the ownership
of such distant relatives—was a savage. And
yet Senator Mclnnes is at present an "arrogant aristocrat,'who is aMe to point the
finger of lofty contempt at "pedantic plebeians !'
What air less bracing than our own could
thus, in two or three generations, change the
blood that coursed with cattle-stealing impetuosity through thi veins of the Mclnneses,
say of  Ben No'-dle, into the cerulean fluid
which now meanders ro placidly through thr
vascular system of our own and only Senator
Mclunes? Canada is a great country, a
wonderful country! Jts "first families"
l>eat the world. .Even it*; "pedantic plebeians" are unsurpassed in their way. I'he
Mclnneses will hereafter, it is understood, be
accorded precedence by all "uur fiist families. "
The most deadly foe, to all malarial diseases is Ayer's Ague Cure, a combination of
vegetable ingredients only, of which the
most valuable is used in no other known
preparation. This remedy is an absolute
and certain specific, and succeeds wheu all
other medicines fail,   A cure is warranted.
The Immigrant Sheds.—It appears that
the mainland of Ii C, must ever continue
subservient to Vancouver Island as
evidenced by the fact that tenders have
been called for the erection of the immigrant
sheds at Viccoria Instead of at the terminus
of the C. P. R. on the mainland. What object immigrants, as a class, can have in going to Victoria is more than we can clearly
comprehend. It is admitted that the really
good agricultural lands on the Island, are,
for the most part, claimed by settlers or
were bought by speculators, so that if ttiere
are any great inducements for immigrants
in British Columbia they must Le sought for
on the mainland. Then why, in the name
of common sense, go to Victoria? It is
further conceded that the great bulk of B. ('.
immigration must henceforth como overland
from tbe east by the C, P. It., and that at
least four-fifths of the fertile arable lands
lie on the Mainland; therefore, to arrange
for bringing the immigrants' to the Island
looks very much as though the great Mainland must, at the bidding of Victoria, continue to wag as the tail of little Vancouver
Astro.iomical.—Mr. Otto J. Klotx, C.E.,
D. T, 8., of Ottawa, arrived iter str. Western Slope, on Tuesday, and will probably remain here for ton days yet. He is commissioned by the Dominion Government to astronomically locate certain points along the
C. P. JR., eastward. These points are I- ft to
his discretion to select. Beginning at Victoria, taking points successively at Port
Moody, Lytton, and Kamloops. The gentleman expects to be engaged for about two
weeks in each place. No points in B. C.
have ever been established before, hence
the Government will, in future, base calculation* from his charts.
Bbickriaking—On Wednesday Mr. F.
F. Scotncy, of this pluce, met Mr. McLaren,
who has lately started the brick making business at Port J-iai.ey, and learned from him
that he has ready "for sale 100,000 first-class
bricks, and has another kiln ready to burn.
The enterprise is proving a great success.
Tbe clay being of excellent quality, but no
better, however, than what is be hud in
close proximity to this place.
Mr. A. J. Armstrong, one of the gentlemen so seriously hurt in the railway catastrophe neer Pennies several weeks ago,
visited Port Moody since last issue. Ho has
not yet fully recovered from the injuries he
sustained on tfait occasion, and it is understood he has entered suit in a law court
against Mr. A. Onderdonk for the recovery
of 125,000 as indemnification.

establishment, or proposed establishment, of
any other teiminus."
This is the amendment that I gave notice
of some days ago when I was diseii-ising the
terminus question, but 1-efore entering upou
the merits of it to-day I desire to make a
personal explanation which slipped my
memory ui*on that occasion. My hon.
friend fiom Lunenburg and myself, have
been accused of speculating  iu Port  Moodf
ftroperty, and in consequence of that s|iccu-
ntion that our minds were more or less
biased. Jt is quite true that my hon. friend
from Luenburg and myself have speculated
there. I regret to say that we have, but I
have only to acquaint thia House with the
fact that we did not do so until we had the
most positive assurances—private as well as
public-public announcements and d< H lai.i-
tions from the Oovernment, that Port Moody
with the terminus ami wouhl remain the
terminus of the Canadian Pucific Railway,
But if my hon. friend and myself bave
speculated there we have done so with our
own moneys, We did not como to the
(lovcrnment aud ask them tor a loan of over
three quarters of a million as the Canadian
Pacific Railway Co. ara doing at the present
time, asking tar 9700,000 for private tpooo*
lation. I claim that thu Canadian Pacific
Railway have no further right to ask this
'Juveriiment for £700,000 to further their
own private interests that are wholly and
solely apart from the Canadian Pacific Kail-
way than We have, it. has not lieen denied
by the Minister of Justice, or by the
Premier, or by tbe actiug Minister of Kail-
ways, or by the late Minister of Railwayfe,
that Port Moody is all that can be desired as
a terminus for a great transcontinental railway. It is not on any ground of inetliclency
or want of space, or want of good anchorage
or any facilities necessary for the terminus
of a great transcontinental railway that another terminus has lieen selected. At Port
Moody there are no less than ten miles of
the finest anchorage and dockage that could
l»« found in any harbor, I do not hesitate to
sny, in the word. Vessels can lie along the
shore there without cvon meting Out an
anchor, so secure is that place and so wall
protected from any winds—it is perfectly
In confirmation of that, I will read a short
article that came under my notice to-day.
It is as follows:—
While the cstima?es were passing through
the House the following discussion took
place, at the instance oi Mr. Blake', on the
item of—
"For connection with Coal Harbor ami
Knglish Bay, shops, buildings, clocks, tracks
una other facilities at Pacilic terminus,
Tlio hon. gentleman said: —The Government told tho House very strongly, and no
longer ago than last session—yes, ami even
this session, when I called the attention of
the acting Minister to the fact that theie
were rumors that tbe company were prosecuting the extension from Port Moody to Coal
Harbor or Knglish Bay, ami pointed out that.
I had indicated before that, for the China
and Japan trade, something of that kind
would be done—he said:. If it is done, the
Government considers Port Moody the
proper point, and if anything mure is done
it will be by the company itself, ami we
have no concern with it whatever; ami at
that moment ho wuus making a contract for
the additional expenditure of no less than
§70,000 to put down Iron piles instead of the
wooden piles in front of Port Moody wharf,
which, it this arrangement is to !"■ made,
will Ijc a structure little required. I do not
mean to suy there will be no traffic at Port
Moody: but, if the teimimis is to be some
thirteen miles off, at Coal Harlwror Knglish
Bay, we have made a permanent structure at
Port Moody to repair the ravages of the
teredo, csting more than the wharf cost altogether, and in addition to giving that to
the Pacific Railway we are to find means ot
borrowing, and perhaps are ourselves to
give tbem, $700,000 for the extension. The
Minister of Railways, early iu the session,
said: This is a matter with which wc had
no concern; it is not our business; we believe the terminus at Port Moody is
adequate. I want to know whether the
Government bave any further information
on this subject, whether they had approved
of this as necessary aud important to the
comj>any, and whether they bave verified at
all tlie estimates ami plans upon which the
Canadian Pacific Railway terminus is to lie
transferred, in fact, from Port Moody to
Coal Harbor or English Bay.
Now, I will end the reply of the Premier :
Sir John A. Macdonald—As I understand,
these estimates are generally rough estimate-, bnt before the money can bo expended
full detaflfl will be given. As to the connection with Coal Harbor, my hon friend
the Minister of Railways was quite right in
stating that it was the aOair of the company
itself. Under the contract and the Act of
Parliament the terminus was stated to be at
Port Moody, as far as tho Government was
concerned; the contract ends there, and it is
a fine harbor, no doubt, and will always
have a considerable amount of trade, 1 fancy
which will -.till remain and start from Port
Moody, although it is the intention ot the
company to extend the line to Coal Harbor
and Knglish Bay. It appears, on fuller investigation, that the interests of foreign
trade will he promoted by going to Coal
Harbor and Knglish Bay, but it forms no
portion of the  contract, and   they  get  no
fiortion of the subsidy on this part of the
ine. I believe tbe cxtentiou of the road
has been made for the advantage of the
general Asiatic trade. You may depend
upon it that the company, with the evidence
they have before them, are acting in the
best interest of trade and of their railway in
going to the expense of extending it 13 miles
1 wonld say, in reply to that statement of
the right hon, gentleman, that it is highly
misleading, to say the least of it. In the
first place, I would not attempt to s*vy any
thing against the Canadian Pacific Railway,
or any private company, extending that
road beyond Port Moody if they were doing
so at their own cost, as we are led to believe
they are, and I am sorry to say that the
Minister of Justice about a week ago javo
this House to understand that it was out of
their own money.
Hon. Sir Alex* Campbell—It is ao.
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—1 he leader of the
House says that it ia their own nmney.

Tbe rumor of an insurrection in Afghan
Turkestan on which we recently commented
appears to bu still curientiu India. It is referred to by our Calcutta oorroepondent In
his telegram which we publish to-day as remarkable for its persistency, but then loetni
to be no po-utive evidence that can either
substantiate or disprove it. The Inherent
improbabilities of the story remain, as, for
example, the Sndinff of treasure worth t
million sterling at Kiuanabnd on the fringe
of the Ameer's dominions. Cur correspondent obvimisly identities the Isu hhan of the
story with Ishak KJ1.10, thu Governor of
Afghan Turkestan, tbeoooela of the Ameer,
and until now the defender of his authority.
It in just conceivable that AbduMa Khan,
although placed between the Russians ami
the revolted Governor of Afghan Turkcsta't,
re'iiuined faithful to the Ameer, aud that the
alleged insurrection of ishak Khan against
him is a mere verbal confusion. In that
case the minor of Ids death become*- more
intelligible, though wo  cannot say that tbe
story gains much in probability, It Isa
Ishak Kh.iu has really rebelled ftgninat tin-
Ameer, wc shall doubtless witness a good
deal of confusion and distnrbam t- in theft
parts, which may have serious ulterior consequences. These we need not anticipate at
present, but it ought pot to bo forgotten thai
the story, whether triiu or falsi: at the moment, is one that tiny become tree
it any moment and in any province of Afghanistan. Nay more, it is 0110 whiclj will
infallibly become true of some province iu
the ordinary  course   of   Afghan  affairs.
People accustomed to the close adheiin of
Kuropean States cannot to_o constantly re
mind themselves that Afghanistan ij not
such a State, but a mere bundle of clans

inent. Afghan provinces and Afffhsu gov.

horn Calmb It is aaid tbat Ltuaaia has instigated Isa, Khan to revolt. This is sure to
be said of every revolt in the Aimer's outlying provinces, it is very likely to be true,
and it is profitable to Russia, whether tine
or false. .She may protest in Europe, but
she irs never displeased to have it believed in
Asia, nor is she ever likely to take any par- _
ticular pains to curb the zeal of lieutenants

It is of really paramount importance for
this country to understand that it is Russia's
interest to break up Afghanistan ami  that
he will pursue her interest by every means
in her power The Russian press is already
pretending that the Ameer is concentrating
ds forces in & menacing manner upon the
Russian frontier and that another lesson like
that of Pul i-Khisti will be required. A few
days ago he was supposed to be dead, and a
little later his troops wero concentrated in
Afghan Tm k'-stan. but we must not complain of these little Inconsistencies, We
trust that Lord .Salisbury will encounter no
ollicial pr- tensions of this kind; but it is at
I**nst clear that M. ile Qiers would have no
difficulty in putting .them forth. If we continue to pin our faith to a buffer State, let
us understand that i.us-ia\*. aim in the long
ruuis to break it down piecemeal, and that
when Afghanistan is concerned the odds are
tieineiidoiisly in favor of disintegration, (_'an
it lie seriously held that we have the power
by any policy or by any expenditure to stop
the steady sap which Russia can and will
carry on all round the foundations of the
Ameer's authority ? Can we extinguish the
local and tribal jealousies nf centuries, curb
the ambitions of rival chiefs everyone of
whom reckons himself as good as the Ameer,
or eradicate the inveterate treachery of the
Afghan character? If wc can do those
thiltgs and guarantee throughout our buffer
iState an abiding loyalty to a ruler loyal to
ii**. together h ith a determination to fight to
all length*, for the integrity of Afghanistan,
then we may rely upon the country tip a
barrier against Russiaji advance. Rut otherwise it is sheer fatuity to allow the existence of tlie so-called buffer to beuuile us
into neglecting a single precaution Mhich it
would be wise to take were Russia actually
in Ountact with India. Great changes have
occurred since the theory of a neutral zone
found favor with some able men. Their
neutral zone was a reality, at least in a physical sense, because some hundreds of miles
of territory separated Russia from Afghanistan. To maintain the unity of his State
was a comparatively easy thing for Dost
Mohammed or Shere Ali, and to lean dpou
England was almost a necessary thing. Iu*
tenial difficulties they had to contend with,
and these were great enough, but they were
nnt called upon to face the dismembering influence new strongly exerted by Russia, and
while they kept on good terms with the
Indian Government no rival could obtain
active assistance from without. The Ameer's
task is now much harder than at any previous time, and as Russian power is consolidated and developed all round the north and
wost of the country it will become harder

How far the Improvement is genuine and
how Iv due to ntnfle withdrawal of th"
working pertl) I treat the mart unhealty section-, are questions of some interest. It
would appear from our correspondent's
statement that both on tho Harriai route
and on the Robin line the higher section**
are being pushed forward, whil-* the lower
rn temporarily abandoned.    On one line
the operations below the  ( happ;ir rift have
been stopped, and on th-* other the intense
heat forbids resumption of work until Sep
tember, as far as th- PirohokiMutcb section
ii eoncorned. One cannot helpasking what
would happen were it necessary to us*** this
railway for tbe transport of troops on some
emergency. It might be Impossible to wait
until (September, and heat so Intense as to
stop construction would act prejti-liddly on
au army. Texas is a h'-t place, so hot as to
have suggested unusual proximity to the
nether tires, but men have lieen heard to declare that some of the country traversed by
the (Juetta rail wary is hotter than Texas.
When that line was planned not very much
was known of the country at the buck of the
Suliman Mountains. It was a traditional
idea that India had to be approached either
through tlie Khyb'T Past on the north or
the I'. .I.in on the - >uth. It is now known
that there is no necessity for an invader to
U e either. That knowledge renders questionable the policy of persisting in a railway
mute which in summer is only practicable at
uiirh', when a little to the north are salu-
bnour plateaus on which Knglish troops
oould live in comfort and health, The frontier railways of India are affairs of enor-
moua importance, and no reluctance to depart from plans ouce settled ought to be allowed to deprive us of the best strategic
routes. Qtietta is a place of great consequence, though unfortunately far from
healthy. It can, howevur, be readily out-
flanked by an invader coming from Candahar unless measures aro taken, as they
easily could be. to supplement the Ribi line

wines which the London Timet recommended in pluce of the Englishman's
honest beer, were the vilest and foulest
of compounds, and if (he Knglish people
took the advice of the Timet ami Gladstone thev would "sink very soon to the
level of Spain." He added thut Ihe
fact of one of Mr. (jlmlstone's enne be-

the advice.
The other day a cricket match look

girls' school in Surrey, England, .and
eleven of the ladies of the neighbor*

in white tunics, Eton blue caps and
sas1i.es to match, Muck stocking-', and
white knickerbockers They also wore

victors—making as many us SM runs
In their second innings—and retired

T• v a he .lthv man in training is from
20 to .10. Boys and girls also of 10 or IB
can run with no apparent fatigue. In'

Visitors to Constantinople know the
little railroad which furnishes transit
to and Kromfinlutii, the business centure
of the city. The hill of Para is a steep
ascent, especially for the Turks, who are
apt to be large and round, and often
short of breath, and who prefer to sit
all day cross legged,smoking a pipo than
to use their legs for half an hour in vig-
rous ciiiuing. A French engineer hns

A correspondent writes to the London Papermalcer1 s Circular: "I recently
saw some paper which had been printed on as long ago as 1453, and was surprised with its excellent- (jualily. I
imagined that papers were made at the
present day in every way superior to
those made so long sgo; hut after a particular Inspection uf the leaves of these
books I have been h good deal staggered
in my opinion I found the paper
made about four hundred years ago in
the most perfect condition, strong, flexible, of o pearly white color, and in it
is seen a water mark, beautiful for its
clearness and delicacy. The paper is
as white as can be desired, and has,
as already stated, a pe.'irly surface such
as is not seen now. The question is will

test of an age of four hundred years
with equal results?   I think not. There

dead man's neck, and made it fast to a limb
of a tree, suspending the body. He then
