for a few hours sa they supposed, understanding that he will return in the

While he and General Oglvie were

the army agents, where be wished to
make some final pecuniary arrangements, In. eye happened io (all upon a
paragraph, which re re d with almost
■rxii.n of his breath, and a fsce
suddenly flushed vith excitement.
"Ogilvie!" said he, turning to his astonished hrother-in law a countenance
that had quicklv bee me while asrleaih,
and speaking in a totally different mice
fr.nu uny ihit had been heard from
him since Ins illnes". 'I have changed
my inrnil. I shall not go to India.
Al all events, not at present."
"I nm delighted tn hear it." said the
general, evidently, however, confoun
rled with the sudd-mean of thn information, ns much as at tho manner in
which it was c..nveycd; "but, good
God, what Iras happened! what has agi

"I am not agitated," replied t' Iriuel
Ht. Helen,with a violent effort to speak
calmly, a; ill- same time risinf. from
his chair, and folding up the newspaper ho had been r-adins;. "Oan you

he bad summoned into to room. He
was gnaw.red |n rhe affirmative. "Th>n

"Re.My, St. Helen, this has lurne.l

"You aie certiinly, my dear St

they had walked for some minutes in

replied General Ogilvie, with a quivering lp. "But my God, I will be true

"And I will be true 11 myself,
Ogilvie. You shall seel" rejoined the
colonel, grasping hia hand and shaking
it- cordially. "And now, what must

"Oh! we must sav thai your ship does
not sail for a fortnight, or M>n."thiiig of
ihut kind; it will be no difficult thing t r
deceive her, poor thing!" said the general, with a deep nigh.
"Har.ly," said Colonel St. Helen,
addressing his groom, whom be had
sent for as soon aa he reached He own
room ut General Ogilvie's. and putiing
two gnineaB into his ban I, 'go din ctly
anl station yourself at   the   corner   of
  Street, and watch   Number  .
which is Lord Seckington's. Say not a
worl to anybody, but neon the lookout night and .lav; and thn moment that
you see a travelling carriage, or any-
ihing of the s rt, go up to the door,
presently inquire who it is that lias
come; anrl if you hear that it is Lord
Seckington, come off to meat the top of
yourBpeed—itwill be the best half
hour's woik you ever did in your life—
ask quietlt-quietly, mini, to see me,
and tell me your news. To nobody but
me, air."
Hardy was a keen mid faithful fellow;
and in about an h  ur'a time he   was   to
be seen lurking   about Street,   in
exact obedience to his master's orders.
What I subsequently learned from
several quitters I may state here, in
order lo keep up the course of the narrative, and the belter to explain the
events which remain lobe detailed.
I was right in supposing that Cip-
t.in Alverley and Mrs. St. Helen went
direct ro the Continent; but of their
movements when there I scarce know
anything. Her wild anil frantic agonies
of remorse at the step she hail taken
were scarcely calculate I to increase the
atiachment of her heartless companion,
whose satiated eye beheld the beautv
which had .0 long fevered his soul
dailv disappearing Even had it been
otherwise—had she Msined all the fascination and loveliness of her manners,
the novelty of the affair had worn off,
he had gained his object, and she per-
ceived his altering feelings. To her
guilty affrighted soul, indeed—
The hollow tongue of time—
 was a perpetual knell.    Esch stroke
Peal'd for a hop ■ she loss; the funeral note
Of 1 >vc deep hurled without resurrection,
In the grave <>f possession.
When he discovered the incurable
nature of her mental sufferings—that
whirring her about from one scene rrf
amusement to another failed of its oh-
ject—he begin to complain that hi=
funds were tunning low. He had, in
truth, long been gieatly embarrassed
an I involved, yet had he contrived to
appear possessed of all lhe wealth and
'0 enjoy all the luxuries and elegancies
thai p nniless young men of fashion so
mvsterio -sly secure for themselves.
Now, however, the money he had ob
tained from Mrs. St. Helen, as well as
a few hundreds thai had been supplisd
to him by a brother reprobate in order
to car y on the intrigue, had almost
disappeared. He began to f el himself placed in very awkward circumstances. What is a penniless man of
fashion in  Paris!     Captain   Alverley
Paris »asa very pleasant place,ant he
eouid have enjoyed himelf there but
for this unforrunate and as he soon
fell and expressed it —most djsgusttng
He therefore began to loathe the
very sight of his miserable, companion
It was unquestionably with a feeling
of keen regret that ho found her
brought home one night dripping from
the Heine, aft r an abortive attempt at
self-destruction, to which his cold sarcastic repartees had impelled his half-
maddened victim. The poor captain
was to be pitied—his bold and dashing
adventure had tufrnod out most un
fortunately! Instead of the brilliant
beauty ho had reckoned on having secured for at least a year or two in
M<r St Helen, he beheld it sudden-
ly withered and gone, and there was
ever with linn a haf-gard woman, tear
ing her hair, wringing her hands, and
frantically taxing hnn with being her
destroyer. In vain he sought to escape front it—she would never leave
him! He had r turned to London to
endeavor to raise funds; his unlucky en
counter with the commander in chief
sent him back in fury to Paris. He
had never felt himself in such an ex
tremity; and he determined, after much
bitter reflection, that c.ultl he but once
get extricated from this unfortunate
adventure, ho would never again un -
dertake one on so extensive a scale.
Of a sudden, however, an express
from London brought him news that
electrified him with delight—a delight
which, in the enthusiasm of the mo
ment, he attempted to communicate
to his gloomy companion. By the death
of his aged uncle he hail become Lord
Seckingron; the proprietor of Seeking
ton Castle, in—shire; one or two other
houses in different parrs of the country;
and a splendid mansion —Street; with a
rent roll of upwards of £25.000 a year,
and not le>s than £200,000 in the
Funds. At the first impulse of his
generous feelings, lie determined to
settle upon MrB. St. Helen the sum of
£S00 a-year, which hn permitted her
to spend wherever she chose—offering
to give her a thousand pounds in ad
dition if she would not return to England. She began, however, now to be
unreasonable! and affected to receive
his liberal proposal with consternation.
And was it really then possible that,
all he had sard and done, the was not
to become Lady Seckington!   Even    i
Colonel St. Helen should take success
ful proceedings for adivorcel Horror— j
horror unutterable! ^F
The next communications that,
reached Lord Seckington consisted
chiefly of pressing entreaties from his
solicitor, and that of his lamented
uncle, the laie Lord Seckington, that
he would lose no time in coining to
London as there were many matters
requiring his iinincd ate attention. He
was glad to sen their letters nccom
panied with one that bore   the   hand-
bedroom and putting the muzzle of a
pistol into hit ear. Probably what he
indured iy that brief interval counter
balanced all the pleasure of his whole
life. Lord Seckington was a bopelfat
reprobate, but he was no coward; ou
the contrary, he was as cool and brave
a man as ever wore two epaulets. But
consider his situation.
Here he was, scarce two-aud thirty
years old, suddenly become a peer of
the realm, having succeeded to a very
ancient title; and with all appliances
und means to boot—all that could

Honor, wealth, obt-dienire   troops ot
iii short, occupying as brilliant a position as man could well De placed in:
yet amidst all the dazzling prospect
that was opened before him, his eye
lit and settled upon one figure only
--that of Colonel St. Helen, standing at ten or twelve paces distance
from him,his outstretched arm steadily
pointing a pistol at his head, with
deadly purpose and aim unerring. It
was perfectly frighiful.
What would he have cared for it in
the heyday of his career as Captain Al
verley; or rather as he was only a few
short days ago—desperately in debt
driven from the army, disgusted with
the presence and stunned with the
shrieks of u woman he had long loathed;
but now—Perdition! The cold sweat
stood upon his brow, and he- felt sick
to death. Whal ivas to be donel He
could not keep out of the way—the
spirit of a man could not endure the
idea of such cowardice; no; his coronet
should, at all events, never be defiled
by the head of a coward. So there
*as no alternative. To London he
must go, and that without delay, with
the all but certainty that, within a few
hours of his arrival, Colonel St. Helen
wou d have avenged all the wrongs he
had suffered hy sending a bullet through
the heart of him who had inflicted
them. These were the dreadful
thoughts that were passing through
his mind, when the spectre stood sud
denly before him, Mrs St. Helen, who
then happened to enter the room—all
her beauty gone, a truly lamentable
"Well, madam.' commenced Lord
Seckington, bitterly and fiercely, "I

writing nf his iutitnate friend, Captain
Leicester. He opened it, and read
"Dear Seckington— Pshaw, how odd
it looks. Of couisel congratulate you,
as everybody does. Don't cut your
old friedds, that's all. But I write
chiefly to say—wait abroad a little,
only till the excitement of the thing

Eternally yours,
"F. Leicester
Tne Right, Hon. Lord Seckington.'
On   perusing    this   will-timed   antl
friendly loiter, it suddenly occurred to
Lord Seckington that hehad certainly
various matters of importance to settle
n different parts of the Continent; and
so he wiote to his solicitors—infinitely
to their astonishment   and   vexation.
He was preparing to set off for   Brussels two or three days afterwards, when
another letter reached him   from    the
same friendly and vigilant pen.
"London, 8th August 18—,
\ "Dear Seckington—What the doce
is in the wind? perhaps you can better
guess than I call tell; but I lo-e no
time in writing to say that Colonel St.
Helen, who had appointed to sail to
India (as I told you in my letter of the
other day), and taken leave of every-
hody in a gloomy way, to seek an
honorable grave, &c. &e. &e., has suddenly changed his mind, countermand
ed all his arrangements, and stops in
London'! Everyone is amazed at this
queer move. I have reason to know
that he had actually engaged his
passage by a ship that started two or
three days ago, and has forfeited all
the passage-money. This certainly looks
cursedly unpleasant— are we to look
out for a squall! Do you think he has
seen that offensive impertinent para
graph aliout you in the papers, and is
waiting fir youl If so. I fear you are
in a very awkward predicament, and I
really scarce know how to advise you.
It will hardly do to keep   out   of  the
way a little longer, will it?   Ask  ,
and  , and above   all,   Count    —,
Ever yours, more and more,
"F. L."
As Lord Seckington read this letter
his face gradually became as white as
the paper he looked upon. Several
letters lay upon the table before him,
unopened and unattended to. With
Cap; ain Leicester s in his hand, he ro-
mained motionlesss for nearly half an
hour; at the expiration of which period

who had fallen down in a swoon. He
immediately summoned assistance into
the room, and then quitted it, hastily
gathered up his letters; but, by some
fatality, leaving behind him the one
which had occasioned him his horrible
agonies—Captain Leicester's. It fell
into the hands of Mrs. St. Helen's
miirl, who communicated its direful
contents to Mrs. St. Helen, but not till
Lord Seckington had quitted Paris. He
hurried to his bedrooms, and after
tiri nking off a large glast of Cognac, he
dressed, arid set off io consult with one
or two "experienced" friends upon the
chief matter that now absorbed Ins attention—whether the laws of duelling
would admit, tiniler the circumstances,
of his expected meeting with Colonel
St. Helen, of his shooting at his antagonist in the first instance; which
woultl allbrti him, he considered, the
only chance he had of saving a life he
was just then particularly anxious to
"You must give him.'' aaid Colonel
—, a considerable authority in such
matters, "two shuts, in my opinion,
and even a third, if the first two have
no effect; and then vou may do a< vtitt
"Poh!" exclaimed Lord Sookington,
with undisguised trepidation.
"Well," replied the colonel quietly,
"you may poh'. if you like; bat
you asked my opinion, and you have
it. I have known it acted upon scleral times, and never objected to."
'Is your friend a good shot?" inquired Count , a little lire eater ns
ever breathed.
"I should say, in all probability, as
good as myself "
The count shrugged his shoulders
"Ah, that is very bad!—I think you
may shoot at your friend at the very
first, by accident."
"That's not exactly the way matters
are settled in England, count," interrupted Colon. 1 —, sharply; the vi
vacious Frenchman retorted, one word
1 d on another, and that evening they
went througii a little duel scene of
their own; Lord Seckington being actually compelled to stand second to his
countryman. On returning to his
hotel, lie found the cards of almost
every one of his most distinguished
countrymen then resident in Paris laying on his table. H« turned sick at
heart as he looked upon them. He
found that Mrs. St. Helen was still in
a state of insensibility, and he embraced the opportunity it afforded him
of preparing for his immediate departure, but not before he had left sufficient funds to provide for her comforts till he could send her further assistance from London, if, indeed, she
did not first receive the intelligence of
his death.

The man who wishes to study human
nature should visit Victoria. In that
city there must lie a multitude of peo
pie who could Irelieve that the moon is
made of green cheese, or that the pasi
is not a shallow. Mi. John Great, one
of the proprietors of the Victoria
"Times," in his address to the electors
of Cassiar, says: "1 am in favor of the
legislature assisting the establishment
of a ferry from the termini of the C.
P. railway to the lslaud." That sentence was not written to secure votes
at Cassiar, hut to delight the clear
headed citizeiiB of Victoria. A ferry
on the gulf in midwinter, loaded with
a railway train, woultl he the greatest
curiosity that ever was seen on the
ocean: a real sea serpent. But Mr.
Grant will vote in favor of it to increase the circulation of the "Times."

At a banquet in Victoria on Tuesday
night, the Hon. Thos. White, Minister
of the Interior, said: "I intend to
interview the squatters on the mainland at New Westminster, and I hope
the result will give them confidence in
the future. Looking at their past, T
can venture to predict for them a
p«riod of increased prosper.ity." When
things are at the worst they sometimes
mend. The knavery of RqIikuii and
the negligence of Dominion officials
have ruined the squatters, liut we hope
the Hon. Mr. White will use all his
influence tu open up for settlement
without delay all the land within the
riilway belt.

It is generally understood throughout Europe, tbat war is imminent: that
Russia is just iu that position, internally and externally, that she must
move,and that her movement must lie
aggressive. The only allies she can
count on, an- Fimiee, Greece, and
|K»rsil,ly Denmark. The Kaiserbund is
a farce that deceives nobody, and it is
highly probable thst the first obstacle
she will have to contend with, will Im
the Austrian armies. It is true that
much depends upon England, and more
particularly on the election of Glad
stone No doubt, the Czar will avoid
a commencement until the Kngliah
elections are concluded, because, although Gladstone is popular with tho
masses, it is well known that the English people hove no confidence _h thp
Radicals iu the event of a foreign war;
so that, if the Czar made any movement implying war, Gladstone would
be sure to be beaten, no matter how
good his chances of a majority would
otherwise have been. So the Czar will
defer active movements until the fate
of his friend Gladstone is decided. The
stake for whicli Russia is playing, as
everyone knows, is Constantinople. In
possession of the Golden Horn, the
whole halniu'i- of power in Europe
would be so completely deranged, that
it does not signify how much Germany
and Austria would otherwise have
favored Russia, they must oppose her
if she approaches Stainboul. It is said
that she commands about three millions
of soldiers, and possesses ample supplies of the best kind of war material.
She has plenty of money, and her
soldiers ure equal to anything in Europe. Appearances nre decidedly in
favor of an attack on Britisli India,
but |n this she may commit u great
error: she may try to induce Persia to
help her, but if she succeeds, it will
only be to hasten the absorption of
that nation by England. The position
of Persia is most important; it would
secure to England a status in the East
that she never can command without
it, and it will checkmate Russia, as it
will place England on her flank all the
way to the Caspian, and might ultimately secure for us the petroleum
wells at Baku. The loss of these wells
would be a heavy blow for Russia: the
facility of obtaining such valuable fuel
and the enormous sums realized from
the industry, would cripple her materially.' But it is'very, doubtful if she
would risk an attack on India, if Gladstone is defeated; she will simply make
what are called, diplomatically, demonstrations The world is very anxious
as to the action of Prince Alexander
of Bulgaria. If the Russians were to
invade his territory with the object of
crossing the Balkans, it would be nothing extraordinary if he stood aside
and allowed them to go, as he would
have very litile chance with a great
Russian army; but if he did so, it
would be looked upon with great sua
picion by the other powers. If he
made a stand and a good defense, he
would be assisted, and, in time, replaced, even in case of defeat. All
will depend upon his action when Rub
sia begins to move. It is very odd to
observe two great powers like Russia
and Austiia; their attention is never
diverted from each other, and every
movement is noted on either side. If
Russia moves a half a dozen regiments
into Bessorabia, Austria iniinediately
sends a corp d'annee into Bosnia and
the Herzegovina. Thus, by degrees,
the train is being Inid to this great
powder magazine which is to set all
Europe in a blaze, when it explodes.
France is silently preparing she has
recalled all her military men home,
where thoy are at once to join their
regiments. She is hoarding her gold
in every possible way, and, having expelled the princes, it will not be a great
shock to the nation if she confiscates
their property, and that would furnish
a great deal of the sinews of war. The
position of affairs in France at the
present moment is of the most critical
character. The public debt has reach
ed a point where it will be dangerous
to proceed further in the way of taxation, without the excuse of a foreign
war. If she could only get baek a few
of the millions ehe paid Germany, it
woultl be a happy thing for the republic. But we fear that such a consummation cannot be reached, and the
effort to secure it may wreck the republic. She has just been buying off
revolution by voting fifty million
dollars to make work for the unemployed; but such ways of postponing
the evil day, are soon exhausted. She
will stake her existence on the llussian
alliance, that is, the republic: a monarchy will soon again hold the reins of

that our readers may be perfectly clear on

of this Province and the syndicate.

Western terminus of the Canadian Pacific
Railway in the immediate vicinity of Coal
Harbor and English  Bay,  and such   work
..bop., structures, works, docks and equipments, shall be commenced forthwith, anil
Srosecuted to completion with reasonable
iligenoe, and so a* to provide facilities for
the opening of traffic ou the through line by

0. In consideration of the premises, Her
Majesty agrees to grant to such persons as
the Company may appoint in trust for the
Company, the lauds in the District of New
Westminster delineated on the map or plan
hereunto annexed, by the color pink, and
containing by estimation six thousand acres,
save and except as hereinafter mentioned.
10. The grant shall be msde upon the
Company entering into a Bond to Her Majesty, with three sureties to be approved of
bv the Chief Commissioner of Lands snd
Works, in the snm of two hundred and tifty
thousand dollars at least, conditioned for the
due performance by the Company of all antl
singular the terms and conditions herein
contained and by the Company agreed to lie
observed and performed.
It will be noted by thu first of the extracts
above, that the company agreed  to extend
the main line and make Coal  Harbor antl
Knglish Bay the terminus,  conditions which
the syndicate must have known were impossible of accomplishment.    The next clause
repeats and affirms these conditions in more
precise terms.    The next two clauses still
further repeat these conditions, and bintl the
company to have the whole line in running
order by the early summer of 1880,   which,
of course, is out of the question.    The next
clause gives   the   0,000 acres,   taking   the
Queen's name in vain aa the giver, when in
fact it was Robson and Smithe.    But since
they placed the Queen's name iu the agreement, it is only fair that  we.   the  Queen's
subjects, should have  the money paid to us
to  which we  are clearly  entitled   by  the
breach of the agreement into which we entered with the syndicate, whoever they were.
It must always be borne in mind, as showing
that the syndicate deserve uo commiseration,
that they assisted  the small syndicate to
boom the place, and have received some very
large sums, if We accept the statements of
the Vancouver papers,  far in excess of the
penalty.    We are informed on good  legal
authority that, having paid the penalty, the
C.P.R. syndicate are then free to do what
they like with the property—that is to say,
if they think proper to build some braneh in
five, ten, fifteen or twenty  years,   well and
good;   but they may never think  it worth
their while to make any branch, because the
sole object of the syndicate was to prevent
competition on the part of other railway or
steam-hip companies,   and this thoy have
settled effectually by securing in fee simple
one-third of all the private property in and
about Coal  Harbor and English Bay, exclusive of their 6,000 acres, with all the frontages: so that the Coal Harbor peoplo jure
helplessly in their grasp.    Had  the  landowners at Port   Moody given   way, they
would have secured the frontages the whole
length of the Inlet, for the same penalty.
We are strongly impressed with the idea that
the syndicate the people of  Coal Harbor
have to deal with, does not comprise the
whole of the members of the C.P.R. syndicate; that it is really the private speculation
of some personB amongst whom  are  some
members of the CP.lt. syndicate.    We were
told that a charter to enable these persons to
construct a line down the  margin of   the
Inlet, was applied for at Ottawa, but refused.
We suspect they have sold all the lands at
English  Bay that they possibly can.   The
ship Chevy Chase has arrived with the turn,
tables and iron roof for the ronndhouses at
Port Moody, and the moment these edifices
are under construction, the Vancouver bobble will hurst.    That, however, by the way.
We want the $250,000 penalty paid immedi
ately, and the money laid out on the main
land,   to whicli   it   belongs     Robson   and
Smithe, for their own purposes,  gave away
6,000 acres of our land, and this penalty is
all we will over get tor It.   The moment the
new cabinet meets,  they should notify the
syndicate thst made the agreement with the
local Government,  to pay over the  money;
and having received the amount, the Reeves
or principal inhabitants of each settlement
in this district, should be consulted us to the
manner in which the money can be best ex-'
pended.    Attempts will be  made to avoid
pressing the syndicate  for the money, lest
they decide to abandon   Coal Harbor and
English  Bay altogether;   but public duty
must be performed If even a dozen or so of
speculators should be ruined:   they   hod no
mercy on the Port Moody people.

It?--', that left Port Moody 13 o'clock on the
7th inst. met with a serious mishap on the
following day HI o'clock at Beaver in the
Selkirk mountains. There was considerable
fire and a dense smoke for several miles
along the line. The engineer, however, was
informed by the suction men that the train
might get through by running, at good
speed, but the heat was so great from burn
ing cordwooal near the track that a rail was
warped sulliciently to cause the engine to
jump the track. In order to get it on the
track again it was uncoupled from the tender,
and in bo doing the tircuuin, got his hands so
burlly burned as to necessitate his being subsequently taken to the hospital in Donald for
surgical attendance. Mr. H. A. McLeod,
engaged in the mail service on the train
running between here ami Calgary, in the
heroic endeavor to rescue a mail sack, received painful wounds on both hands and
feet, but he succeeded iu his purpose, and
remained on board of his car to Calgary and
returned here Sunday 12 o'clock, proceeding
to his homo. New Westminster, where it is
hoped, by good care, be may fully recover
within a short period of time. Mr. McLeod
speaks in terms of highest praise of C.P.R.,
officials for the unremitting care and attention they liestowed upon liim. The tender
of the engine and three cars—a first and s
se. .m.i class passenger car and mail car—
were destroyed; the Pullman sleeper anrl
engine being MHved. The loss to the company is estimated at ahout $100,000.

DiMviToiNTF.n. It is not to be wonderod
at that arnne coming to Uritish Columbia will
be disappointed. Thoy usually expect too
much. As an instance, we mot a "down-
castor," who had just conic overland, the
other day, and he was actually looking for
the orange groves which he hurl heard something about. We referred him to a clump
of Douglas firs, as coining nearest in resemblance to what he was inoiiiring about. We
surmise he will return nnrl curse the country
because it was not as he expected to find it.
Nor at AM. Pkoiiabi.e. — The report that
this routo by Rurranl Inlet is likely to be
abandoned for tha Eraser river, connection
with C.IMt., at Port Hammond, is only another of these wild rumors originating in the
cranium rrf the purely theorotical class. We
can assure any who have doubts on the
question that there is no probability of such
a thing occurring. Tho. C. P. H.Co., must be
given the credit of more business sagacity
than to attempt such a suicidal policy. In
the event of such a change Vancouver, the
Company's pet town, would surely suffer to
a greater oxtent in thus being cut off from
commercial intercourse with the outside
world than Port Moody.
Grbat Fiues in the Interiok— All reports agree that extensive fireB are raging
along the line of the C.l'.R., cast of Kamloops, extending to the locality of Donald.
The dry spell east of the Cascade mountains
conducos to this end materially, and much
loss to the company, it is predicted, is likely
to accrue from tins cause. There is, however, a more hopeful view to take of the
matter, inasmuch as the vigilance of the
company iu guarding against such casualties
will be of the strictest character, and, although some delays may result therefrom
occasionally during the summer, there is no
real ground for the apprehension of much
serious difficulty from the above cause.

The Hon. Thos. White, Minister of the
Interior, arrived at Port Moody by train
over the C.P.R. on the 9th inst, snd wss
met by a delegation of our citizens, wbo
presented him the following address:
Hon. TIuh. While, Minister of the Interior.
Sir,—We, on behalf of the Port Moody
Progress League, sud of the citizens of Port
Moody generslly, beg leave to extend to you
a cordial welcome to our incipient town, upon
this—ss we understand—your first visit to
the Pacific roast of the Dominion of Canada.
Our natural surroundings present, as yet,
much cf the rudeness and ruggeduess, which
ia, in some degree, cliarscterietic of all
towns in tbe course of being hewn out of
the wilderness. But since the Dominion
Government hss wisely, ss wc deem, long
since selected Port Moody ss the terminus
of the already famous Canadian Pacific railway, uow only just opened for daily through
tiallic, and as the British Admiralty has
•elected upon its shores land reser-stions
for a greit nsvsl ysrd aud marine depots;
snd since, ss vou may perceive, it seems hy
nature formed for the sits of s great city,
we believe the time is not distant wheo ws
•hall have no need to spologise for the rude
appearance of our young town.
We hail your arrival amongst us with especial satisfaction, from the fsct that you
nave recently become s member of the Csns-
dlsn Csbinet as Minister of the Interior.
in that Department we ars aware that
there is a vast amount of work to be done,
in which the mainland of British Columbia
is especislly Interested.
We allude pirticulirly to ths matter of
ths claims of those who have settled, or ss
it is frequently expressed, "squatted" upon
the lands held by ths Dominion in this
The grievances of thsss settlers hsve frequently been brought to the notioe of ths
Dominion Government, but without producing any satisfactory result to the aggrieved parties. This is not the occasion
upon which to dwell upon these grievances
in detail. We will only venture to ssy that
it is of immense importance to the welfare
of British Columbia that the questions should
bs answered at the aarliest possibls moment,
ss to how, and when, and upon what terms,
these settlers are to hold the lands they
occupy, if they are to hold them at all. We
further venture to ssy most respectfully,
that the "Regulations for ths disposal of
Dominion lands within the railway belt in
the Province of Britiah Culambia," passed
in Council in April and July, 188.1, are
wholly inapplicable to the circumstances of
this Province.
We sincerely hope and trust that your
visit to British Columbia will facilitate your
dealing with the question of acquisition snd
tenure of Dominion lsnds with promptitude
and upon ita merits. At the same time we
cordially wish that your visit to this Province may be as agreeable to yourself as we
hops it will be profitable to us British Columbians as a community.

Port Moody, July 9, 1886.
Mr. White thanked the citizens of Port
Moody for the address presented him, which
was utterly unexpected on his part, and he
said that hs hoped the people of Port
Moody would fully realize their expectations
with reference to the future of this place.
With reference to ths Dominion lands in
thia Province, it was the chief object of his
visit to so arrange matters before his return
home, thst those who had endured the hardships of clearing the track for civilization,
incident to pioneer life, should be secured in
all the rights and immunities to which, at
the hands of the Government, they were
justly entitled. He further stated that he
had already arranged to meet a deputation
of settlers of this neighborhood at New
Westminster next week, and he confidently
hoped that such an understanding might be
arrived at as would prove of mutual satinfac
tion to both tho settlers in question snd the
Dominion Government.
The honorable gentleman made a very
favorable impression upon all who listened
to his reply. Messrs. J. A.R. Homer, M.P,
L. A. McLean, Mayor of Vancouver;
"Winnipeg" Ross. Dr. LeFevre, Pickens of
the Vancouver Herald, and many other
prominent gentlemen from various parts of
the country, were present. Mr. White departed for Victoria at 13 o'clock, by the str.
Princess Louise.

The brigantine Evangeline, Capt. English, at Halifax N.S. from Montego Bay had
a narrow escape from Shipwreck on the pass
age. She sailed from Montego on June 4
for Inagua, where she was to load salt for
Hali'ax. Whrm beating to windward between -I amaica anil Cuba she encountered a
very violent gale, which lasted for three
days, accompanied by fog and rain, The
vessel lay to most of the time, and while in
this position struck a reef on the sooth aids
of Cuba. Tho aea was running high, and
commenced to break over the shin. The
first sea which boarded her filled the cabin
and iMrs. English was nearly drowned. The
second sea drove the vessel further np on
the reef, but this was quickly followed by
another and heavier sea, which carried her
off the rocks into deep water, where ahe
made her escape.
We alluded lately to the rnmour aa to the
real reason which induced the Russisn police
to summarily close a photographic studio on
the Nerski Prospect some time since. It
was discovered (so it is asssrted) that tho intention of the "artists" waa to take, not tha
Czar's portrait so muoh as his life. Sinos
then many curious details have reached this
country, some of whioh have reference to
the seizure of an infernal machine shaped
exactly like a photographic camera. This
diabolical apparatus was so constructed, it is
said, that bombs could be fired through the
tube, which oould have been aimed at its
viotim on the pretext that .the operator was
focussing the so-called camera. The story,
if true, is indeed a most unpleasant one, and
it is to be hoped that the details are, after
all, only the outoorae of an ingeniously inventive correspondent's imagination. Once
let it be understood that cameras posted on
their tripods may be infernal machines in
disguise, and the lot of tlie open-air photographer will certainly be far from a happy
Sue, especially in Ru-ste-fAo^-a-raj-Ai'

Washinoton, D. C,
July 2,
Congress baa been wrestling with appropriation bills this week, hoping to hasten an
adjournment, but that event is itill far off.
No matter how urgent their work, however,
our lawmakers can always find time to stray
off into irrelevant paths in the midst of any
debate. No matter how impoitant the question under consideration, not a day passes
but that both legislative halls of tbe Capi
toi are scenes of undignified ssssults of
Members upon each other, partissn thrusts,
and acrimonious personalities
While looking down st the representatives
of fifty-five millions of people, your correspondent ia often grieved st the audacity and
effrontery of legislators who turn from the
mighty responsibility and pressure of public
busmen to waste time over their own petty
wrangles and personal animosities. The
present week has been unusually prolific in
quarrels of this kind, and in the revival of
little feuds. One of the most ludicrous
scenes took place between Congressmen
Cabb aud Laird. Hot words passed be
tweeu them for several minutes, and rial
contradictions and threats followed, when
both jumped up threatuingly, and each
threstnlngly told the other that he had bet
ter not threaten.
And no matter how great the urgency of
public business, Congressmen take time for
a little pleasantry whenever au opportunity
is pieseu'eil. To-day the fun may be at the
expense of one of the National Capital's
monuments. To-morrow it may be a Cab.
inet officer who Is placed in aome ridiculous
light. Yesterday it was the new Pension
building that was assailed with a battery of
ridicule. Representative Durham put it
mildly by calling it an architectural monstrosity. Representative Rogers referred to
it as 1 cross between a car stable and a union
depot. Mr. Seringer thought it was ugly
enough to be blown up with dynamite,
while Mi. Cannon admired the structure
very much aud Mr. McMillan said he rather
liked it.
Senator lngalls of Kansas predicts that the
Senate will undo some of the work recently
done by the House, when that grave and
angust body gets a chance. He referred to
the hill passed by the House, prohibiting
pool-selling, book-making, betting on sports,
elections or other events, and gambling of
all kinds in the district of Columbia. There
waa a spirited debate in the House at the
time. Representative Hemphill, of South
Carolina, said that every State had a law of
this kind, and aa we were a Christian nation,
the people of the District of Columbia should
receive as much moral help as people elsewhere. Representative Adams, of New York,
who undertook to point out the fatality of
such laws, asked if they were not uniformly
evaded in every State. The South Carali
nian was not prepared to deny the allegation, bnt contended that the law was good,
and that because people were bad enough
to break it was no reason why it should not
be made.
Representative Harbour, of Virginia, was
also opposed to placing legislative restrictions upon horse-racing snd other such pastimes. He held that it was of national importance, that we wanted to cultivate that
noble animal—the horse. "But is this bill
against horse-racing or against betting?"
asked Mr. Weaver, of Iowa. "Oh, everybody knows," said Mr. Barbour, "that you
can t keep'up horse-racing without the interest that betting gives. But the House
passed the bill against such sports, and that
is the one Senator lngalls says the Senate
wilt kill when it comes before it. "We are
inclined to be very wicked on the Senate
side of the Capitol," aaid he, "and the Puritanical ideas that seek to take root in Waah
ington will not be fostered much by our
treatment." He holds that people have a
right to do as they please with their money,
but it is to be hoped that he is mistaken aa
to the sentiment of the Senate on this subject.
So many interesting and important events
have occurred in Washington, and ao many
distinguished people have lived and died
here, that it is at last suggested that houses
and spots of historical'interest be designated
in some way. It is rather strange that the
city lathers have not attended to this before.
It would add greatly to the interest and
pleasure of visitors to Washington if tablets
were placed upon the walls of houses, similar to that marking the houae into which
Abraham Lincoln was borne to breathe his
last. For instance: "On this spot George
Washington built a house intended for his
winter home;" "In this house died Henry
Clay;" "The residence of Daniel Webster;"
"The boarding house of Aaron Burr;" "In
this house the assassin attempted the life of
William H. Seward." There are a hundred
spots of interest that might be marked in
this way for the pleasure of visitors.

A terrible elephant story comes from
India. It appears that on the morning of
April 8 last, while an elephant was being
ridden by its keeper in the district of Sul
tanpore, in Oude.tbe animal resented "prod
ding" with a spear by pulling the man from
his back and throwing him some distance
away. Fortunately the man fell in a hollow
and remained there undiscovered by the
elephant, who went to a neighboring village,
There he chased an old man into a house,
then broke down the walls, pulled the man
out, and dashed him to pieces. The same
night the elephant knocked down several
hoiisea in quest of human beings in the vil-
lu.es of Sadaruur, Bargaon, Jaisingpur, He
killed six merlin Hersoms, three in Sota,
four in Oangeo, and four in Mardan.
He likewise killed a bullock and a pony, and
also completely destroyed a aew carriage.
The animal used to stand at the door of a
houae, force his entry by demolishing the
walls ou either side, and would then kill as
many of the elephants as he could, pursuing
others who tried to run sway. He mangled
the corpses terribly. After securing a vie
tim he sometimes returned to the spot to see
if life was extinct, and would commenee mutilating the body afresh. He carried several bodies long distances and threw them
into ravines, kc. The elephant found his
way to the Dehra Rajah's place, where he
tried to enter the house of a gardener; but
some men, mounted on three elephants, assisted by spearmen, drove him off. He
then returned to Bebipur, where he tried to
break down his master's house, in which
aeveral persona had taken refuge. The police got into the houae from a back-window,
and were obliged to send for help to the
Dehra Rajah, who sent three elephants and
some spearmen. The animal received two
gunshots on the head at Bebipur; which,
however, only temporarily drove him off.
He was ultimstely captured, at imminent
risk, by the Rajah's three elephants and
men.—St. Jamet't Oaxette.
It has recently been demonstrated that in
a perfectly moist air no formation of fog is
possible, however much the temperature is
lowered, so long as the air is absolutely free
from dust, aud that the more air, sufficiently
moist, is charged with such foreign particles,
the more intense ia the formation of fog. If
filtered and completelv moist air in a glass
ball have its pressure diminished, only a
few particles of fog will reveal themselves to
the most careful inspection. Bnt if a few
cubic millimeters of ordinary house air bo
now admitted into this filtered air, a very
fine, silvory transparent fog at once forms
itself, of such slight density that even in ths
case of a considerable area of it the atmosphere would be but very slightly affected.
At the first moment of its formation, if a reflected image of the sun,or the reflected light
of an electric, lamp, be viewed through it,
the image will be seen surrounded by an in-
tveseiyTuml... aa blue or greenish light.

breach of continuity been healed over.
Surely there arc few objects more pathetic
than the last lingering survivor- of a vanished race, whose comrades have all perished in
the struggles for existence, where the battle
ia for the strong, and the fittest—nnt neoes-
snrily, alas! the liest—survive.
Let ine take the reader with inc. and I
will guide him to one who might well be
taken Ms the last of the hand loom weavers.
Perhaps the journey itself may not be with-
„ t its teachings. We must leave the railway far behind, and frmn the busy town wo
will follow the high road, nu turnpike now,
though once a main coach road between
Lancashire, up the long ascents, broken, by
short reliefs of down hill, till we oome nearly
to the. bui'dol'M of the moors which stretch
from the Cheviots to tho I'ea.l, forming the
sturdy "Backbone." Thin we leave the high
road and descend by a steep by-way into a
deep valley, which slopes evenly down tn
the brook in the bottom. 'I'll" hillsides are
cultivated and cut up by the stuiie. fences
into little enclosures of grass ImnL and bore
and there a farm steading. The valley is
tilled with a silence that is strange and rilnmat
oppressive to one. uecustomeif to hear the
hum of the mill wheels, or the nimble and
shriek of the railway train; you can oven
hear the murmur of the water iu the brook.
Not iu this lonely dale dwells modem industrialism. At the bottom nl the valley across
the brook ia a paper mill, disused and quiet
now; a Chancery injunction killed the intruder. Here wc betake ourselves to a footpath leading up the brook. Soon we pa»»
the site of a tine old hall, the scattered
•tones of which tell uf the building that
once stood there. A foolish speculator
pulled it down, that he might build himself
a finer mansion; butcro his plans were carried out his riches left him, and his work
stands a sample of niuny another enterprise;
lhe old has lieen ilcstroyed for the. sake of
the new, and the new has been left incomplete, an ugly blotch, to be turned to sueh
base uses as necessity might determine.
Aa we go further up the valloy, we pass
several small, old fashioned mills, used iu
the days of hand loon, weaving I'm spinning
the warp and weft ami fulling the elnth.
The machinery is still there, but it is many
years since there was any work for it, and
the buildings are falling tii ruin; thu stream
•till flows by, but no longer IiiIkhs for mini;
the big water-wheels an motionless, the
mill-dams are partly silted up, uud under
the hushes at the side lurk some line trniit
which au angler would esteem it privilege
merely to try for. In addition to these deserted but not desolate homes of the industry of the past, we como to a inure painful
illustration of the tide that in its ebb leaves
men wrecked anil ruined; high on the valley
side rises a huge pile of building—a modern
mill, six stories high -but in the window
openings are no windows, except in the two
top stories; the floors have been laid; the
foundation of the chimney and engine-bed
have lieen laid, but nre no', built upon. It
is a huge wreck, nnrl for twenty years has
remained untouched. This place was built
chiefly by the savings of industrious fanners
and weavers nf the neighborhood, who hoped
to provide a permanent source of employment and profit in their midst; they began
to build, but were not able to finish. So the
mill stood, nnd will stand for years to come,
till wind and rain and frost tear to pieces
what man foolishly and blindly put together,
Eood for reflection here, ennngh for half a
day's moralising!
We shall never get to our weaver unless
we quicken our step, and leave much nn-
noted. The eve will quickly take note nf
the long, straight valley, gradually narrow,
ing as it rises, and finally closed iu at tho
upper end by tlte dark moorland. It needs,
too, but little power of observation to perceive that many nf the fnnn houses arc unoccupied, that the fields nre badly cultivated,
and not always free iruin bushel aud brambles. You w-ill begin tn wonder if this is
indeed the busy West Riding, the thriving,
overcrowded West Hiding. You will find it
difficult lo realize tbat hardly live milca
away is one of the chief centres of the
woollen industry, a town which bi.asts that
it has suffered less from bad trade than any
other in Yorkshire. It is depressing to see
these significant marks of poverty, the un
mistakiihle tokens that here the waste is
invading the cultivated field. I« it not that
here we get a glimpse of the reverse side of
modern urogrcssr Does it not suggest the
doubt that possibly progress may imply
retrogression* At last we upjprnnch the head
of the valley; right across it Is a large cm-
bM_j_ie-t. forming a resmve of water for the
use of the mills down the valley. Above* j
this it sen i ui is no cultivation; all is heather- j
clad ninoiiund, Iteuutilul with its owu peculiar and iudtscnbable charm, cleft into gill- j
I". s down which pnur the winter rains, anrl j
i- hich the summer sun fills with ever vsrying

Tl" i. . on the light, ull the aeryedgeof

lice, then, is my hand loom weaver; look

it. A most gentle and pathetic face; if we
look long, we ahull scarce refrain from tear*.
Wc wilt enter; he deaf not hoar oaf knock.
so we open the door ami go iu. The poor
old man starts and his faee changes - lur li
hull alarmed, half suspicions, at the entrance
of strangers, who seldom, indeed, cross his
threshold. A few friendly words reassure
lum, and he will have us be seated, though
there is untiling better tban a broken chair
and U stnol to sit lt|Klll. As we ghtoiu
arnuuil. ue hardly need ti, lie told that ho
lives alone. There nre no murks ot woman's
careful handiwork, anrLwc luies the cleanliness which makes even poverty less poor—
no wife mn c.il'l ot his could leave the poor
loom quite so forlorn. He tells us that a
widuw woman aud her daughter eome iu to
clean for him sometimes, but be generally
'lues everything for himself. He is eighty-
four years old, but hns no pay from tho parish. He makes all his living himself by his
loom. It takes him n long time to finish a
wurp, uud he has te carry it four miles when
he has finished it. 11 the warp is a good
nue, ami he can keep regularly ut work, he
cau eni-u about 4s. per week, hut he does
not average that. SometimcM iu bad weather
li-. e riiiint get out at all, und be is very badly
off then. He lives mostly on water porrirlge
uml milk. All this he tells us in answer to
questions. He has none of the garrulity of
old age. Hu sIiowb hardly a gleam of interest as he speaks; utters no word of complaint. As wc cease to question, his face
settles ugaiu into the lame wintry calm that
we saw as he bent nvei- the loom at his work.
Presently a smile comes into his faur, but it
neither breaks the culm nor thaws the winter expression, like a glint of sunshine
through a rift in sunn '-laden clouds fulling
upon snow-covered hills, as he says: "It ts
not for long, and Cud has always made a
v, nv fur me." The old man has fuith iu Coil;
in nis poverty, that is his sole but sufficient
possession, f recall to mind my thoughts on
uuothcr visit. When I entered the cottage
thu old man wus in the "left" al-ove the
stairs, and he was talking aloud as if to some
one he knew well aud trusted; the words
fell with far greater freedom and readiness
than I hud ever heard from liim before; a
fuoling of awe, and ti consciousness of being
au intruder, n r. rsistibly came over me as I
perceived that he spoke to Cod.
I do not know this old man a history, no • ■
by what changes and chances he had been
left thus solitary after eighty-four years of
struggle and striving. For the few years
that are left, what will be his lot" when
the aged limbs refuse to work, what remains lor the pool hand loum weaver? Will
he die atone in hii cottage, or will he be
taken Into the workhouse, to drag out a few
weary days in n oruwd that is more lonely
thun solitude! Who knows! Who cares*
He should have left his hand loom for the
power loom, he should have left the deserted
valley uud migrated to some more thriving
district; lie stuck to a failing industry, and
as the industry has slowly perished, su have
Iii9 means nf life diminished; he should have
transferred his skill to some more profitable
employment, he would not then have needed
our compassion or our sympathy. Perhaps
he might anrl ought to have been more far
seeing; but surely it is uo waste of pity to
feel the sorrows and hardships of these victims of the changes that have conic over the
Woollen tiade. Few are now the hand loom
weavers, and year by year the number rapidly decreases, ff he live to weave tho
warp woof for but a few more years, tho
lone dweller by tho moorside may be literally the last of the hand loom woavori.
The reports received during the hist ten

that the steamship Nova Seotiuu reports a

Melitmore i cherts that, uu bis po»a-|M> trom
Baltimore ts, Liverpool, he e-peneu ed heavy
gal.s from the northwest, attended witb
very lieuvy seal. As the ship had a deck
load of cattle aud there was imminent danger
of some of the cattle being washed overboaid,
he placed two oil bags, filled with fish oil. st
each end of the foreyard. Tlur oi) being left
astern, effectually prevented the sea fruiu
breaking aboard the ship, and, in tbe Captain's estimation, saved a Dnmher uf tlte
oattle from being lost, the seaa haing so
heavy that, had it not beeu for the oil bags,
the decks would have undoubtedly been
swept. Capt. Boutchei states that he was in-
duced to use the ml bags by reading tbe re-
p.a Is as published on the luunty eharte.
Capt. Wasa of the brig Morancy, while on
n voyage from llockport, Me., to Port au
Prince Haytl encountered a hurricane from
.-uut In, est to northwest, accompanied by a
tremendous seu, which washed hu deck load
overboard, tore the tarpaulins from the
hatches, smashed the cabin windows, swept
uway every movable thing about the deck
overhead, and did nther damage. Finding
two feet of water in tbo hold, and seeing his
ship was tivntciied with destruction, tbe
Captain determined to use oil. The vessel
was hove to under storm trysail. A small
can vis bag filled with shadings, saturated
with boiled Unseed oil, was hung at the
weather cathead; a swab Maturated with
kerosene and boiled linseed "il wasiuipeuded
over the side, ahfeuit the main rigging; two
oil kegs, fulled with kerosene, were lashed
uu the rail, abreast the fore rigging, and on
the weather quarter, and the faucets turned
so that the oil ran over the Hide very slowly.
The effet waa seen very soon in the perceptible smoothing of the previously breaking seas Tlte oil slick extended at 200 yards
tr, windward of tbe vessel, and scarcely a
ilrop of water caine ou board after tbe use nf
uil was ltegiiu. There were used during the
gale live gallons boiled linseed, snd three
gallons kerosene oil. The length of time
during which the oil was in use is uot
slated. Capt. Waas is a firm believer In the

Capt. Davis, muster of the bark Jas. H.
Borland, iu au interview stated that, on bil
last voyage from South America to New
York, during heavy gales, with mountain-
inii sea running, he used oil to quiet the
waters of Feb. 20, March 1, and March .1,
I SHO. He used four bags of oil, aud from
each main channel, with short lanyards attached, allowing the bags tn dip in tlie water
at each roll of the vessel, Ue made thu experiment both running before tbe wind and
sea, and hove-to, and in each case found the
nil to take the combers off the sea and prevent the water from breaking on board. lie
rays tliat when running before a heavy sea a
vessel yaws a couple of points, and that when
sho does so the seaa sometimes break on
board over the opposite quarter, unless
aome method is found to rig the bags out ao
that the oil will cover a sufficiently wide
space astern to prevent thtt. He recommends
rigging spars out over the bows lashed to
the catheads, if they can be mado strong
enough, and hanging the bags to these eo
that the oil will spread over a surface twice
the greatest beam of tbe ship. Bog- hang
from the fore yardarin wonld not do, as the
wind would blow them inboard; the lanyards
must be short, and the baga Weighted to
prevent the wind dashiug tbem against tbe
ship's side and blowing the oil on board.
Capt. Davis used linseed oil; and, when all
that was gone, he used common varnish.
The oil had tbe desired effect, but the varnish was too thick, and did not answer the
purpose. One gallon ol oil per hour wai
used for the four bags while running, and a
teas quantity would be required whon hove
to. Iron davits wonld he the proper thing
from which to hang the bags. Vessel.
should be fitted, and oil carried for thii purpose, and uot wait for a gale of wind and
the seas to break on hoad before commencing
to make preparations.
Capt. McGregor of the Knglish steamer
Albanno reports to thu, office that he nsed
oil on his last passage from Baltimore tn
Dublin. Bxperienoed very heavy gales and
seas from westward in latitude 44 10' N.,
longitude 39* 12' W. Placed two nil bags
astern, filled with linseed otl and oakum.
Previous to placing the bags over the stern
had taken heavy seas aboard, flooding the
decks, but alter towing the bags no more
water came aboard. The gale lasted three
days, with very heavy seas, but, owing to
the uil, ran quite easily and took no water.
Used about seven gallons of oil altogether.

Assnriling, and rightly it would seem, that
(hciii'i'iiei'ife of disease is the same in all
casea, the celebrated Holloway, a man of
great attainments, succeeded many years ago
in producing two. remedies suitable to the
relief and cure of most diseases to whioh
human nature is liable. Thoir popularity ia
immense, and we question whether the dis.
languished in vootor baa a richer harveat field
than Australasia within, tho world wide circuit of bis business operations. Tbe Pills
and Ointment are household remedies
wherever permanent dwellings exist, and
few of tho tents of tbe roving adventurers
iu pursuit of wealth from the Im,welt ofthe
earth are unfurnished witb theai. The
singular adaptation af the Pills to all constitutions, as well as all disorders, is one of
their most valuable properties. In all complaints uud di'licultiea special tothe feebler
aex, they seem to exercise tbe happiest influence. In tlie two great crises of life, tha
dawn of womanhood, and the epoch whioh
marks the point between maturity and de.
.line, they have proved invaluable to women
in every clime and country. Female*, from
the tenderness with which they are usually
brought up, from the peculiarities of dress
whicli fashion has forced upou tbem, from
their delicate aud sensitive organization, and
the position thoy occupy as the immediate
pcrpetuators ofthe race, are subject to ail*
ments from whiuh men ars exempt, and it is
indeed fortunate for,the sex that a medicine
which meets their wants and debilities baa
been given to the world. With Holloway's
Pills and Ointment always at hand ia her
closet, every wojiian can lie her own physician, and the physician of her husband, aad
children, if she have any, aa well. No need
of running for the doctor or besieging the
drug stores; she has the wholepharmacoprjeia,
or rather something infinitely better than the
whole pharmacopoeia, in a nutshell She
can hold between her finger and thumb tbe
talisman that will oure many disorders. We
are not surprised that Holloway's remedies
are popular with women of ali ages, (or they
have proved their efficacy in the home cirole.
and know from observation and experiment
their inestimable worth. —The, Sentinel.

Now has come tbe time to verify the prediction! of the builders uf tbe Canadian

a fast through train from Montreal to Port
Moody took place. The result* will be reported by telegraph.
It will aot do to-aaeei at thii enterprise,
the distance by the Canadian Pacific .fn.in
the Pacific coast to Montreal, which is in
longitude 71 degrees, is about the same ai
the distance by the Central and Union
Pacific and their connections from that
coast to Pittsburg, wbteb it In ftt, degrees
the figures being aa follows:
From San Francisco to Pittsburg
via Ogdeo 2*88 miles.
From Port Moody tu Montreal by
Canadian Pacific 2S95 mile«.
Thus in tbis aectiou of the transcontinental journey tbe Canadian route gains 7
degrees of longitude over tha American
route. But this is not all. At Montreal
passengers and freight by tbe Cauadian
Pauifie strike ocean sUauicr. whicli carry
them by a voyage ol *tt*3 miles to liver-
pool, whereaa passengers and freight by
the Pacific railroads running through
Ogden, when they reach Pittsburg, are still
444 miles from ocean steamers at New York,
and then tliny lu-vea voyage of 3430 miles
before they reach Liverpool. If the Canadian steamers plying between Montreal
aud Liverpool were ns ew ift as tbe steamers
plying between New Vork and Liverpool,
passengers by the Conadian route would
beat pasaengera by tlie American route not
less than three days. This is no small con
It ii of course to be borne in mind that
real competition can only be conducted by
thu Canadian Iiue during fi ve. nr six months
of the year, Before Slay ISth and after
October ISth the ice renders, the navigation
of the Saint Lawerence somewhat hazardous,
and travelers, aa a rule, do aot court
dangers whicli they can avoid. But in
winter they oan take tbe Orand Trunk at
Montreal and reach Portland, which is 2(10
miles nearer Liverpool tban New York, and
tbe Portland route is never closed by ice.
Ot course, this does not obviate the dangers
of interruption by inowslides and other
winter accidents on the Und journey. In
that portion of Ontario which lies north
of Lake Superior, iu parts of Manitoba and
in those parts of Aseiuiboia and Alberta
which t'ne Canadian Pacific traverses, tlie
■uow sometimes lies forty feet deep, and
eur fiercest blizzards are known to como
from Assiuilioia. Railroading throughout
mob a country cannot be but extra
hazardous. Still, tho Denver and Rio
(liaade manages to run trains in tbe mountains of Colorado, where there ilia much snow
and as mnch cold, and tbe Grand Trunk and
the Northern Pacilic have overcome obstacles as formidable.
If ever tbe Canadian Pacific people put
en a line of steamers from Port Moody tn
China and Japan itwill behoove our transportation line's to look out. The traffic tu
support tbe Canadian Pacific must come
from Asia. It waa in view of this that the
Government of the Dominion waa slow to
grant the demand of British Columbians for
a Chineae exclusion Act. It was well
understood at Ottawa when the preient restriction Act was passed that it would
probably bave to be repealed before a contract could be made for a line of steam
era from Port Moody to Hongkong; tnd it
was an open secret that when the itoor was
thrown open for the importation of China-
mau, who'wonld come with the expectation
of filtering through the border into this
country, the iteamer would make so much
oioney out of steerage pssssages that th. y
could afford to . compete to advantage with
the Pacific Mail and the Oiiental and Occidental lines In the tea business. These are
matters which will bear thinking over.
"The Metropollyten Boerd of Works
having got to hopen a new Bridge down at
Putney, witch they haa bin ever eo many
years a blld-ng on, naturally asked the
good and Poplar Prince of Whales, for to
cuuiwul hopen it for em, and to aak his
boottful Princess for to cum with him, so as
to raake sure ef one hrite sunbeam to tight
all the place up. And with tbat remarkabel
kindness as ao extibguishes'em both sed as
how tlin'yd cum. So fai so good. And
there waa lots of flags and lots of Tents,
and lots of flowers, and Bands, and gards of
honner, and netterer, and tlie usual speeches.
So far io good. And then there was a haw
ful paws, and ewefybOfly looked preshus
cold aud hungry, for there was a bitter
North- Easter a blowing, and then the haw-
f ul shook built upon'em alt, that there wasn't
not no wlttles, no not eweuaglaasof wine
to drink good elth to the new Bridge I Aud
so the Prince and Prinpest got into
into their Carridgo and -rove away. And
all the rest of the Company did the same,
all looking werry cold, and werry hungry,
aud werry disappinterl. And tbis the pore
Mutrojwllytsn lloerd of Works thinki is a-
buut the rite wky for to hopeu a new Bridge,
poor fellers. But as they're ony about thirty
years old, there,'! of eoane ewery hegscuio

gets a little older. If they Uvea as long. Well,
if tbat wasa all, I dort't think as how I shood

The most interesting among new British
consular reports on the trade of China ia
said to be that of Mr. Clement Allen on the
trtde of Pakhoi. It appears thtt Pnkhoi it
the gateway to the southwest provinces of
China. Detpite the natural dltadvantages
of the province of Kwang-Bi in which i'akhoi
iatittiated, Mr. Allen shows that the increase in the imports of cotton and wooleu
goods Inst year at Pakhoi was very remarkable. Thus, of shirtings 24,361 pieces were
taken, against only 249 pieces iu
1884, and 163 pieces in 1883, and
of cambrics and muslins, 12,491 pieces,
against 5,012 pieces in 1884, and 2,310
pieces in 1883. The imports of yarn were
actually doubled, while the imports of raw
cotton declined. Silk goods were Imported
tu the value of £12,381, agninst a declared
value of only £1,043 in 1884. This, says
Mr. Allen, is the more remarkable as the
rice crops of the province were destroyed by
destructive floods, and the people were obliged to import unusually large quantities of
this foodstuff. It is said that the war with
France has been of service to China iu a
political sense, as it has roused tho patriotism of her people and led to a dilligeut attention to business and an iumeased understanding of intermit ii.mil courtesies.
