there on the following Tuesday.
Monday evening about five o'cloo
started on  foot,  reaching the  <?-mile"" |j>ver   there,
post at 7*30|<where I intended to loej\te/  ~"��� "     '   L
for the nigh'6 at the "hale," or cottage,'
of a Kanaka, who received me very.'
cordially,   and" spread    before   nie   a"
goodly supply of poi (raw fish), eggs
and   biscuits.   The former,I declined
and dined, off, the eggs and biscuits,
after which" he introduced, me to his
wife and sisters, who, during the evening, sang some veiy .sweet1 Hawaiian
airs.    In the morning, after partaking
-of a hasty breakfast, I was off<��� on my
way, having a 14 mile tramp before me
over an ancient lava flow, the scenery
and surroundings of which is tame and
uninteresting���not a sign of life of any
description, and', no, shelter from the
tropical showers that frequently overtook me and drenched me to the skin.
But at last, after a seven houra dreary'
tramp, I saw the hale of  a'Kanaka,
who informed me that the plantation I
was in quest of ^!ay a mile orso off on
my right,  and after losing   the trail
more than once, I at last stood on the
verandah of my friend's house, hungry
and footsore, vowing that had' I known1
what I" did then   Puna  would never
have seen me.   But they welcomed me
and made me very comfortable,'so that
I soon forgot my hard journey.   .'
During my'stay we visited a cave in
the vicinity of the plantation formed
of a blister, or air bubble, in  the lava.
The place being subject to, earthquake,
the lava in  places had caved in, thus
forming an entrance.' Into one of these
we descended with lamps, and as soon
as our eyes became accustomed-to the
darkness tlie view .that met, our gaze
was grand toa degree. A long subterranean , passage   extended  for,  miles,
from SfO to 40 feet broad, and in place's
10 .feet'high,   the'roof hanging'with
lichens and mosses in   endless  variety,
while around the sides were galleries
formed by thejava, and in other places
beautifully shaped arches.. But a nasty,
damp, cold atmosphere seemed to prevail, making one long'to be'jn the sunshine again. As one of us was climbing, over   a   high    fallen  boulder ,we
discovered a skull in  a good state of
preservation, and on further investigation   w^e came, across  some dozens of
skeletons, the cave being a Hawaiian
burying place.  The ancient inhabitants
always 'secreted  their dead  in  caves,
and  from   the appearance of a good
many they'must have been there for
a great number of years.  Most of them
were  arranged  round/the galleries  I
have   mentioned;   others   seemed   to
have, been shaken 'from their resting
place by earth shocks, a,s we discovered,
bones broken and huge boulders of1
lava on'top' of them. In most cases
the' skeletons measured over six feet
long, thus proving that the ancient
Hawaiians'were a very fine race. On
making a closer examination of the
skulls hardly a single tooth could we
find in anyway decayed; of course,
many were missing, but all that we
discovered were as sound as a tooth
could be.
���> After explorations lasting over two
hours and discovering a vast quantity
of human bones, we emerged into the
glorious sunshine once more, leaving
behind us the awe-inspiring influence
which ancient bones and mouldy tombs
always exercise over the living. If
those bones could speak, what a
history might here be .unfolded! But,'
like the,sphinx, they hold their secrets
in close-lipped silence, allowing' the
nineteenth* .century visitor full scope
for the exercise of his imagination.
When these bones walked the earth
the Hawaiians were most likety ferocious cannibals, and this cave may have
been one of their feasting places.
, Many a time during my stay did I
pass over the cave, 'but did not care to
penetrate any farther into its depths.
Everywhere the sacred ohelo berry
grows ; a few ferns and* tall scraggy
trees complete the landscape for miles
and miles, and uotbing else seems to
flourish. After a stay of ten days I
was pleased to bid adfeu to my friends
and returned to Hilo, wilh its plea tun b
surroundings, but after all J am not
sorry I went to Puna.        Pe.vgjiadon.
i '  Letters have just been received from
onerof the largest banking houses in
Holland by a gentleman in New York,
in which the bankers state that they
are prepared to negotiate for first-class
railroad     securities,      manufacturing
establishments    or    gold    mines   fin
America. The gentleman who received
these letters has just returned from
^Europe, and gives a reason for this re-
tl^urn of confidence in  monetary circles
He    says:    Money   is
abundant abroad, and there has been
a    remarkable     gain    in    confidence
because of the fact, while well-known
there, does not seem to be known here.
J*t is that after the present  Czar of
Russia took the oath of office he made
a personal pledge to the Rothschilds
that there should be no war in Europe
for at least two years. The Rothschilds
have a similar pledge from-the other
rulers,  and are confidently investing
their money as, a 'result of it.' Sooner
or, later   this   money   will   turn 'into
Amercian investments.   My. own experience does not confirm-the stated
ment that Europe is afraid of our currency system.
Down from Golden Cariboo.   ; '
* J. Hepburn arrived at Vancouver
from Cariboo last Thursday and has
gone east.' During the past six weeks
he took out a few hundred dollars from
Keithley point and adjoining ground
with a rocker, the'surface gravel being
washed away by the high water of last
summer. Mr. Hepburn had with him
$208 worth of nuggets varying in value
from $1 to $20 each. He was also
arranging to put in a bridge across the
North Fork for the Victoria Consolidated Mining ' Co., in which Messrs,
Mann, Holt, McKenzie and other ea!st^
ern capitalists are interested. They
will develop their claims on arl extensive scale next summer.��� World.      ;   ���.
Odds and Ends from the Legislative
���.. Assembly,
Last week, while the Mining Bureau
Bill was being discussed in committee,
Mr. Cotton said he strongly opposed
the proposal to expend a large sum of
money for a building for the bureau in
Victoria. If they really desired to aid
the mining industry by such an institution they should secure a really able
superintendent to collect information
and furnish' reliable and practical reports. For the use of miners and prospectors Victoria was about the worst
location that could he found. ��� He ridiculed the idea of the,Minister of Mines
that prospectors would flock to Victoria
to hear the lectures and that this would
provide quite a source of revenue.
, Messrs. Williams, McPherson, Davie,
Eberts and Bryden followed By striking
out the sentence authorizing, the Government to acquire land in Victoria' for
a site, it being held that they had
ample already.      ....... '���
Winnipeg Merchants After Kootenay's
,    Trade.,    , -   ��� .   ,
In pleasing contrast to the apathy
displayed by the Coast cities in regard
to the growing trade of Kootenay, we
notice tlie activity being displayed' by
some Winnipeg tufrchanfcs to obtain a
share of the trade of this district, as
well as that of Cariboo���our old standby gold producer. Winnipeg houses
have been gradually extending their-
business operations in British'.Columbia until they now reach into nearly
every section in the interior. West
Kootenay's trade is a growing one and
must eventually overshadow the trade
of every other district in the province.
This trade is surely worth striving
after,  but the merchants of our own
coast cities do not appear to think so.
Visit of General Booth.
Gen. Booth, of the Salvation Army,
who has reached the Pacific coast by
way of the State?, is expected to ar-
rive in Victoria'next Monday. The
City Council will present him with au
address of welcome. The Salvation
Army'propose having' two meetings' in
connection with the visit. The afternoon' meeting will be devoted to hearing the general's account of the army's
progress' throughout the world, and
probably some speeches from several
well-known citizens. This reception is
in great contrast to the treatment accorded the army during the first few
years of its existence, when its members wore jeered and laughed at on the
streets as crazy people.
 '��   .  -
Going to Retaliate.
The American fish companies at Victoria are somewhat agitated, as it is
currently rumored that the deep sea
regulations are to be so changed that
hritie'but British subjects can-embark
in the,fishing business in- British Columbia.
When the House went into Committee of Supply last' Friday, Mr. Hume
objected to the vote' of $8,000 for the
South Riding of West Kootenay. It
was like throwing the money away as,
it would not do anything towards the
works needed. He asked^the'Govero-
ment if they intended to' carry out the
promises made '' by the ' Attorney-
General. '
Hon. Mr. Turner did not know of
any promises. ,   , '.,,,"���
' Mr. McPherson repeated what he said
the other day���the districts represented
by Opposition members were not fairly
treated.' ,
��� Mr. Kellie contended that South
West Kootenay had been well-treated
in the matter of . the Nakusp & Slocan
Railway and other public works.
Mr. McPherson pointed out that
when Mr. Kellie was' first elected he
was opposed to the Government, aud
bis district was not fairly, treated^until
he became a Government supporter.
' ' Mr. Graham said roads and bridges
had been promised in'all parts of his
district and some had been started, but
work was- stopped immediately after
the election of an Opposition member.
Mr. Kitchen said he had been unable
to see any, results from the $16,000
mentioned in the supplementary estimates as having been expended 'in the
New Westminster district since tho
floods. He would like to know where
the $16,000 had been wasted. There
were many culverts that had not been
replaced and many of the roads were
covered with debris left by the floods.
He refused to, take' his seat until the
Government told him how the $16,000
was expended.
' A peculiar sound was heard from0the
end of the Government lieuches, which
led Mr..Kitchen to remark that he did
not know there was a cow in the House.
Dr. Walkem :   I did not know there
was a jackass in the House.
After,Dr. Walkem had gone outside,
to " see a man," probably, the Government promised  to give a list of the
work done with the $10,000, and Mr.
, Kitchen allowed the item to pass.
Has Not Struck Kamloops Yet.
The general depression has not had
an opportunity of making itself felt in
Kamloops yet, thanks to the C P. R.
repair work and the wages paid out by
the Government for building the Provincial Home, which sources of creating
a circulation of the "needful'.' have up
till now kept "hard times" at bay. ��� But
those works having now been completed
there is ample time for the invader to
put in an appearance, and in such case
adversity will Ins more keenly felt, fol- '
lowing so closely on prosperity.   Tlieu
Kamloops will have to fall into line in
the procession and "Haw wood" with
the rest of us.  The local correspondent
of the Colonist writes:   "Despite the
hard times elsewhere,  this   year - has
been the most prosperous in the history
of Kamloops since tlie   railway   construction was completed, partially dua
to the extra force of workmen employed -
in repairing the damage by floods to
the C. P. R., whose supplies were taken
from here,, and  to the  building of the
Provincial Home, which put a considerable amount'of money in circulation.
That institution has been examined by
the arch i beet an d accepted as pro cMen 11 y
finished.    It is a beautiful structure, on
a commanding site, and a credit to the
city and the province."
Scatter the' Glad Tidings.    \ .,
That, one, needs .to. go away from
.home to get home news is often exemplified, and the following glowing account from the pen of the Victoria correspondent of a,Winnipeg journal is a
casein point:' , ' ��� , .-.'��'
, "Most satisfactory accounts are coming from the miuing country, as high '
as fifty and a hundred claims a day aro
recorded ab Kaslo. ��� Tho output of ore
at Three Forks will be greater than the
Nakusp & Slocan road will be able to
carry. 'On tlie Lardeau 25 rich companies are operating, and prospects for
a splendid output from that region
were never better. Single miners have
been taking out as high as $50 a day in
the vicinity."�� i- "   '   .   . ���

Hotel, .Victoria, B.C., died almost suddenly, on Monday. Deceased was an
old-timer and one of the pioneers of

Gol'i Com in insiiiuci:
Dated at Nelson, H.(\,
���1th October, 181)1.
Mr. Williams asked   who  had
contract for the Ashcroft bridge.
Hon., Mr. Martin :> The San Francisco Bridge Company.
' Mr. Williams thought there' were
local companies that could do the work.
He had seen several bridges built by
that company, and they did nob
amount to much. >
Mr. Rogers said the San ' Francisco
company had always given satisfaction
and had done the work at a fair price.
Mr. Kellie said the Government
should try and give the work to local
men. He read a letter in which it was
stated that while tho San Francisco
company were building the Ashcroft
bridge a British Columbia company
were being prevented from building a
bridge at Spokane for which they had
received the contract.
Hon. Mr. Martahi said the tender of
the San Francisco Bridge Company
was $3,000 lower than the lowest of the
other tenders. The.next lowest tender
was also an American company, the
lowest local tenderer being $5,000
higher than the highest American company. 	
Fauvel Process of Treating Gold Ores.
" A. new method for separating gold
from its ores .lias, recently,been introduced in the mining districts of Wyoming. 'The crushed ore is heated to a
sbate of. incandescence aud* quenched
in a bath of ?cold water. As 'each red-
hot parbiclefalls into the water, enough
steam is iustantly generated to shatter
it, and'any glaze or film is therefore
ruptured. The particles of gold are '
thus broken down-to a remarkably fine
sbate and are rendered .very brittle.
The gold is clean and shining0 and
quite tree from,any coafctng"of "oxide.
This method makes it, unnecessary to
crush bhe ore very finely, and in addition the output of the mine  is  gp fatly
increased. '

time has taught its quiet 'lesson of the
value of bettor roads and outdoor exercise, and especially the benefits of
bicycling. The calendar for 1S95, which
is just issued, is even brighter than its
'predecessors in appearance, as clever

To most people in  Ttevel'��toko Mr.
Gamble's action in waiting for "balnn
spring "'before commeuciiig operation
on the river bank seems -very foolisb.
The time between the disappearance of
,   the snow and tlie annual   rise  of  t he
river is too short to permit of,, any extensive   operations, such as should be
the   caso   Here,    being    carried ' out.
Spring is proverbially fickle,   and  this
holds just as good here as in any othei
part of   tho  world.    It may he a I.no
'   spring, and tho snow may remain until
the hot weather sets in, in which ci->e
the melting of the snow on  (ho mountains would occur simultaneously with
that on the level, and  the ' ri&e of the
water would be overwhelmingly sadden, and tho wort  would  have, to be
put off t till next fall. " Spring may sot
iu early, and the river would  become
BiifficieuLly high to  pre\ent any work
being done on the beach, which is now
high and dry.    Besides, it will be impossible to haul the necessary rock .mci,
timber when the snow Is softening uu-
tfor the genial influence of the spring
fiUAshiue.      Mr.   Gamble   may ,have
pratts for bringing tlie inatci ial from a
long- distance  by  i ail way.   ' It. so, a
-lo'nsiderablo portion of tho appropriation v.'ill be swallowed  up   by  freight
rates, while the best, of material may
be obtained close at hand.    Never was
there a more favorable time for bringing in both rock and timber than now.
The siiov is firm and only a few inches
(leap.    A1 good road could be made to
.   the quarry at a trifling cost, and there
�� &ra plenty of teams in the town to do
* tha hauling.    Tf  the woik   lias to be
v postponed until next fall Mr. Gamble-
will have to thank himself for it, if, as
vro understand, he has boon "given full
powei' ia   the matter.    We who  live
1    hero do not leave our hauling until the
sprieg, and everyone knows that if'he

fehe spring  thaw  commences   he will

A number of racing men were chatting in an uptown hotel on-Broadway a

'the horses were brought out. trotted and 1

intended to place ou Hopeful in the

."Racing in England is vastly different
from the sport in this country, and the
great public knows far let^a about the

that tho~more~we bet the more the ring
seemed capable of absorbing. Wo told

a 'miracle could keep . us' from
getting the "money. " Whips were
fiyingbehind ns and'our colt was still in

then I-'grow faint and want to swear.
Our jockey, 'with "the insane desire of

, Marine signaling is at least 25 centuries old. Among the Greeks aud Romans the polished surfaces of the shields
were used us mirrors to reflect the sunlight from one toireiue to another. Afl
they U8ed no 'firearms there was no
smoke to interfere, and the flashes of
sunlight could be easily read. In this
day it could not be done, for whole
squadrons of warships are sometimes
euvelope'cl in smoke. , However, sinoke-
Iobs powder may in a few years so alter
conditions as to make some ' similar
system possible in battle. *��
The uae of firearms introduced a new
mode of signaling only as regards signals of .distress, and as a maimer of
saluting other nations. In actual buttle
the cannon'are useless as signals, because each faction is firing iudiscriiuin-
"jlMy, and Jhe', number of gnus to be
fired as signals.lose their identity. Any
foreign vessel of, war entering a liarbur
of another country with which it is at
peace hoists the flag of that country at ���
the fore truck and fires a salute of 21
guns, which salute is returned with tho
same number of guas. A vessel in distress, if in daytime,'fires a gun continuously until borne answer is hail from
shore or borne other vessel, if there is
one in hearing distance. 1.
' The semaphore has boon very successful for short distances. This is an oblong ball, 'about 2 feet in diameter,
which in manipulated on a flagstaff or
hoisted by a line. It is used almost exclusively on vessels acting 111 squadrons.
If the flagship wishes to pass an , order
the ballb are raised to certain elevations
ou the staff, which carry certain mean-,
lugs. Suppose the order is "up anchor,"
hoist ono ball at liiilf mast, and lot it
remain until all tho ��� other vessels ans-,
wer "all right," or, perhaps. 0110 bail at,
the masthead aud one half-mast' might
moan "up anchor, '\ and so on three,
four or five balls could bo manipulated ,
in certain combinations to moan any
general order in tho tactics of field maneuvering. 'For short distances the semaphore is very successful and is also
used among merchant vessels, aa well
as men of-war.
The principal signal for short distances is the'"wig-wag," which is used, not
for general maneuver, as the semaphore,
but for any and all messages that have
to be explained iu detail. The "wig"
wag" is made by a person standing erect
with a small flag in each hand, which
he waves in certain combination for
certain letters. For instance, if both
arms were held erect over the head aud
brought down in a circular motion to
the side, each flag would describe a
semicircle aud a letter "o" would bo described. ' . r '
Hold the left flag out horizontally
from the body aud describe a somicirclo
with the right flag., then the right fhig
out and circle with the ' left, and so on,
combining motions until every letter in
the alphabet is"represented by a motion.
In till tlie navies of the world the small
boys taken its apprentices are trained aa
signal hoys, not only for the "wig-wag,"
but all other modes.
Tho flag system is the most universal
and satisfactory of all codes, both
nationally and internationally. Tho difference between the "wig-wag" and
the flag system is the "wig-wag" represents the letters themselves, but tho
"large flags represent not only words, but
seutences. These are recorded in a Ixwk
which evory vessel has, and by referring to the number in the book that the
flags repre.-ent. the message is interpreted. When large flags are used they are
hoisted to tho masthead by an ordinary
halyard, to which the flags are fastened
with the units flag of the desired number at the bottom, tens next, arid so on.
Long triangular shaped'"flags (pennants,
properly cilled), of different colors and
combinations of colors make tho numbers. This is easy, as only nine digits
sre twed (the zero bf-iug excluded), and
one nag over another can give any number wanted. Each nation hiw. its own
combination of numbers, so th.it they
c*n signal among themselves, while
others can s'-e and not understand.
Then there i>i an international code by
which any two nations may communicate, inasmuch as figures are the same
in nil nations, and thongn thoy might
not tmder.-iUii'l one word in common,
they can interpret the flag numbers.
Every voai"l that floats, wiiether merchantman or man of war. has a number,
which ib ri'U/rdi'd in tbo it.t.'riiatinnal

The diminished use of boots is a matter of concern to the manufacturers of
them and to tho, producers' of. heavy
leathor and heavy calf' skins, says the
Shoo1 and Leather Reporter. Twenty
yours ago tho calf boot industry was a
loading 0110 in New England. Whole'
towns wore studded witii factories
which produced calf boots exclusively.
For a decade the sale has been gradually'
falling off. and to-day it is'of hardly any
iuumrvatico. A few manufacturers of
shoo- include boots as a specialty, but
the dom.-iud is too light to amount to
much. W lion calf boota were more iu
vogue manufacturers consulted the
partialities of tho cowboys, to whom
price was a secondary "'consideration;
Too legs were frequently corded with
silk .aiitchin,'. The star and croscont
and other fanciful ornamentations wore
inlaid oi! tho legs of the boots; there
wore high heels" and the boots were
striding upcoimens of mechanical art
Thu soles were inlaid with copper, zinc
and hr:t>8 nails- . The cowboys no longer
pay jSlo or S-JO for a pair of boots. They
want substance instead of show. But
they were not the only wearers of calf
boots. Thoy were oxtousively worn.
Many mon prefer them to day. though
the number is growing less. The old-
fashioned stoua hoots wero formerly
6old in largo quantities;" they are' well-
niirh obsob'to. There followed a demand
for a Hgnter nnd more stylish article
A'kip boot of lighrer-textriro was produced, about) equal in appearance to-the
bofct calf bo'it. but'tliis.' too.: linri.'fallen
somewhat Into dioiise.'an'd' the^fiales this

there is iu>w not one. Even the farmers
sre Uh'.ng hinvy shoes instead'of boots,
and if it 11 comes a necessity to wear'
ong l.'gj'ed boots thoy buy'rn bets.

Brooms and plowshoos are indUpeus-'

The New York Independent recently
"copied a thiity line article about "Farm-
'ng in Cmada'' from tho Springfield
Republican which contained errors,and
did not do justice to this province. Mr.,
O. C. James' ro.dy is herewith printed:'
Ontario is a largo province. From
the mouth of tiie Albany river on James
Bit to Peloe Island in ' Lake Erie tho
distance is about 7.10 miles, while from'
the eastern limit on tho St. Lawrence to,
tho western on the Lake of the Woods
w about 1,000 miles. Its total. area is
2-iO.OOO Kf'mare miles: larger than the
niuo North Atlantic States, by one-
third; larger than Maine. New Hainp-
bhire, Vermont. Now York. Pennsylvania and Ohio combined. But a small
portion ia as yet settled ; in fact, eighty
per cent of tho entire- province, is yet
j'l' the possession of tho Provincial
Crown Lands Department: and while
too larger portion unsold is valuable
principally tor its timber and.minerals.,
there are several millions of acres of the
finest agricultural hind as yet unoccupied. One h-cclion lies along the Rainy
river, adjacent to Minnesota. I y other,
the Valley of Lake   Temibcaininguo, ia
,t> tho north of Ottawa. These two
districts are in tho - same latitude na
Northern Minnesota. ' Tho former district is covered with deep, black, alluvial soil, and the latter with rich clay
overlaid with humus.   J '
The old S'-ttled portion of Ontario lies
in the triang'.o bounded on ono side by
the Ottawa and Lake Nipissimr. on tho
M'cond by the St. Lawrence Lake Ontario and" Lake Erie, nnd on tbo (bird
by Lake St. .Clair. Lake Huron and
Georgian Bay. It ia worth while opening a map lo "look at, tho configuration.
With the exception of a shotc pottage
between L-ike Nip ssing and Trout, Lake
on'tho north, it is practically an  iaiand;'
,,washed   by .tho   waters   of  two largo,
. rivers and three great lakes. In addi-
tio'n'nolo its shape, like a wed go pushed
down into 'ho heart of tho groat agricultural States, and you will begin to
realize .1111 its position and surroundings apparently fit it  for a gro.-it agri-
' cultural' land. Ita back bono is the
western branch of the Areluean 'rocks,
tho material out of which rich clay is
made. ' Tho alluvial deposits are most
noticeable in tho extreme southwest,
where tho soil rivals that of tho richest
prairio. While the northern point of.
Ontario is an ocean port on Jau.es Cay,
t'.le southern point is further tfouth than
r.OhUm and , O liostgo. The southern
li'iiiit'of Oi.t;svio is below the -I'M parallel; the ii'i'tliiwest boundary hno ��'f the
United Suites is tho _ 49th.'   Practically
