A Thrilling Ineldeul In the Annala of the
Columbia Jitter Seren Jtllea In
Slim Jim was a devil-may-care sorl of
a fellow, as reckless and Tearless ni lie
was true hearted. He would iinhcstta
singly adventure any personal danger or
cheerfully endure privation, if need be,
'ttWiclfj a friend. The slightest appeal
to his sympathies would call forth his
last dollar. Jim was a good steamboat
man, made a first-rate mate in some
resccts, and was a pilot of no mean
ability. He never carried quite enough
ballast to make n good captain, although
that was a position that proved to be
for him an always) unattaincd goal.
Yes, indeed, the early days on the
Columbia River were the palmy das of
stcamboating. Ity early days tnc old
river men include the tunc from 1856
to 1862. Durini" those ears many
stirring incidents and exciting episodes
occurred in the annals of the river
navigation. The most comprehensively
reckless feat I ever witnessed was exe
cuted by this same harum-scarum dare
devil Jim, during the period of the con
struction of the Oregon Railway and
Navigation Company's road down the
south bank of the Columbia. Much of
the road bed had to bb blasted out of
solid cliffs of basalt that arose perpen
dicularly from the sutface of the water
to a great height. To facilitate their
work the engineers made great use of
small scow barges rigged up as floating
offices, dwellings, machine-shops, and
the like, lhesc scows cost all the way
from $500 to $1,500, and most of them
were built and used on what is known
as the Middle) Columbia, that is, that
part of the river between the Cascades
When work was finished on this part
of the river and the engineers moved
their construction outfits to the loner
river, the scows became useless unless
they could be run oer the Cascades.
The difficulties attending such an un
dertaking can only be realized by one
who has seen the roaring, rushing and
loammg lumun 01 waters nurung mem
selvca in mad frenzy-against the rocky
islands and huge boulders which choke
the tortuous channels of the Cascades.
We caught the glint of Sandy's axe, as
with one powerful blow he ctitthc tow
line, and the two men and their clumsy
craft were abandoned to the cruel
waters, which seemed as writhing,
struggling serpents, eager to devour
with their foam-dripping jaws those
hapless mortals. For a moment the
scow disappeared behind a little island,
and when she again came in sight,
moinc slowly but with an ominous
and quickening speed, Jim and Sandy
were hard at work at tnc sweeps, jnn
forward and Sandy aft. 1 hey were
doing their best to work the scow over
into the narrow channel that would
take her through in safety if she could
but be held fairly in it. We on the
shore cheered and jelled till we made
the woods and cliffs ring again, but not
a sound of our voices could reach the
men who were periling their lives in
the midst of those turbulent waters.
Those sweeps, immense as they were,
might as well have been two matches
for all theood they were in battling
against the fierce currents. The rush
ing waters seized the scow, and with a
great leap she went bounding and surg
ing through the frothy whirlpools
straight for the one huge boulder such
strenuous effort had been made to
avoid. We clenched our hands, held
our breath and looked. Looked with
that horrible fascination that sometimes
holds one spell-bound while in the pre
sence of a danger terrible with impend
ing death. Faster and faster the un
controlled scow tore through that tem
pest of water. Nothing can save her
now. She will surely strike. Someof
us turn away j we can't see poor Jim
drown right before us, we who have
been shipmates wjth him so long and
have learned to love the kind heart
concealed beneath that brusque ex
terior. Nerves are strained to their
highest tension. The excitement is
painful; not a sound is heard save the
uproar of the mighty river. Jim sees
his danger, abandons the sweep he has
plied so vigorously, and, sprincing onto
Lthe deck of the house, grasps the life
line and endeavors to reach bandy and
give him warning. Sandy, stationed as
he was at the aftcrswecp, was blissfully
unconscious of what was transpiring at
the front of the scow.
Hut Jim had scarcely clasped his
hands on the life line when, with a tre
mendous bound that seem the hurl her
clear out of the water, the scow went
crashing onto the rock, enveloped in a
cloud of foam and spray. Wave after
wave poured over, and sent curling
breakers crashing down into the stern
of the stranded craft. It seemed a cer
tainty that Sandy had been swept over
board when the scow struck, and the
climbing waters broke over her, but he
suddenly appeared alongside of Jim,
holding fast to the lines. For an awful
moment the scow hung on that rock in
the very midst of the wildest maelstrom
of those raging seas. The force of the
breaking waves careened her, now this
way, now that, and balancing between
inevitable destruction and possible
safety, she seemed to cling to the rock

treacherous repose and bounds ahead

waters that Jim engaged to pilot one of

him at first, and then tried our best to
dissuade him Iroin the almost suicidal

violence against the rock and its burden

beam end ; if she capsizes all hope is
goricybut another wave strikes her, and
the'ii another, and she rights herself and
plunges headlong down into the boiling
,vvaters, that seem almost to engulf her.
'nil we could sec was a little bit ot the
house and the two figures clinging so
desperately to the lines. The scow
buried way down into the billows and
then sprang into the air almost out of
the water, and with a furious shake
rushed madly into the 011s weeping
stream. Then how wc shouted and
veiled and screamed and waved our
handkerchiefs and threw our hats into
the air, the danger was passed, and al

power greater than the brute force
stored in the steel like muscles of his

The two men accordingly went to,

the hull with spikes and rods, and

skirting the edge of a huge eddy,

waves. A bend in the river hid her

miles, and the scow had been twelve
minutes in making the run. I have
since seen big steamers under full head
of steam successfully run these pas
cades, but they did it in high water,
when the ditiiger was trilling. In fact,
with a steamer, it is as one of the cap
tains said ; "All vou have to do is to
point her nose where you want her to
go, give the engineer the jingle bell,
and then let her rip."
Jim has long since disappeared from
the scene of his triumph, and Sandy got
to be- such an insufferable braggart, that
his foreman had to discharge him or
break his head. It was a tradition on
the river that Jim never got even a
"thank ou" from the company. C.I.

II HI' !,
Chancellor Kent used to tell an
amusinc incident in his own life to
illustrate the prejudices cherished
amone even intelligent iieople against
lawyers; Having put up his shingle in
a small town, where there was little law
business, he was visited one evening by
several of the leading citizens. While
congratulating himself that good times
were coming, the words of their chief
speaker almost took away his breath.
" Mr. Kent," he said, M we have been
talking over the question of your settle
ment with us, and have concluded that
Rebellion is not the proper term to
apply to the trouble in the Canadian
Northwest. Kiel and ills lonowers
have risen for the redress of grievance,
as Wat Tjlcr rose against a poll-tat,
and Wyatt against the return of Papal
domination. They have no hostility to
the Government, and no intention of
founding a separate state. 1 hey arc
not rebels, or even revolutionists. They
are simply insurgents. F.vcry popular
movement has its scientific side, which
is worth studying, even by politicians,
if their nolitics are to rise into states
manship; for it is only by this study
that a repetition of such troubles can
be avoided. That the disturbances ot
iS7oonlhcked Kivcr, which should
never have occurred at all, should not
only have occurred, but should be re
peated on the Saskatchawan in 1885, is
a lamentable evidence of the little wis
dom with which the world is governed.
In a literary criodical the study of
such a movement and of the actors in
it will be deemed appropriate, as a re
view of history in action, and of the
forcesby-which events arc caused and
controlled. The great fur-trading asso
ciations of British America the North
West Company and its successor, the
Hudson's Hay Company did not in
terfere with that possession of the coun
try which the Indians had held from
time immemorial. Hut they introduced
a new element into it. Many trench
Canadians found their way into that
region, in the employment 01 tnesc
companies. Theywcrc not settlers, as
the very name by which they were
known sufficiently implies-. They were
travellers, wanderers, loyaceurs. Hut
thev formed connections with the In
dian women, who were faithful and
hardworking consorts. Their descend
antsthe Metis, or half-breeds made
a new race, combining the lively and
social temper and the strong religious
sentiment of their French parentage
with the independence, the restlessness,
and the hardihood of their Indian an
cestors. Like these they belonged to
the country, and naturally held that the
country belonged solely to them and to
their Indian kindred. So, by natural
right, it undoubtedly did. In 1869 the
Hudson's Bay Company undertook to
make over to the Uomimon ol Canada,
not only its interest as a trading society
in that region, out arso me sou or mis
immense territory, which it has never
owned. The Canadian Government
accepted the generous grant, and forth
with proceeded to survey the land for
settlement. The Metis, who were half
farmers and half hunters, saw the lands
in which they had chased the buffalo
and trapped the beaver suddenly laid
out into rectangular 'ranges,' 'town
ships," and 'sections,' and all the world
invited to come in and occupy them.
Their own claims to it were simply ig
nored. Then that inevitable antagonism
which, from the days of Champlain and
the Pilgrim Fathers to our own time,
has marked the westward progress of
the white race m America, instantly
rose. But the half breed element intro
duced a new and better character into
the contest. The Red River Rebellion,
as it was called, presented none of the
atrocities (with one unlortunate excep
tion) which had marked previous col
lisions between the white intruders and
the native proprietors of this continent
The insurgents chose for their leader
Louis Kiel, a young man, then only
twenty-five years of age, who had been
educated in a Roman Catholic college,
and had displayed considerable intelli
gence and force of character. His
parents were both half-breeds. His
father, the son of a French Canadian of
the higher class, was a man of good
education, a mill-owner and trader.
He had himself been a leader among
his people in resisting some unreason
able regulations of the Hudson's Bay
monopoly. He was now dead, but his
son, selected in his place, showed no
mean capacity and energy in his
measures. The demands of the Metis
were moderate and reasonable a share
in the government of the country, and a
fair proportion of the land, laid off to
them in the manner to which they were
habituated. The expedition under
Colonel (now General) Wolseley put
them down without bloodshed ; and,
to the credit of the Government, it
should be added that no punishments
followed. An amnesty, which alter a
while included Rirl himself, was pro
claimed, and the demands of the in
surgents were in the main conceded.
Large numbers of the Metis arc set'
tied in the far west, chiclly along the
two branches of the Saskatchawan a
broken region, where fertile plains alter
nate with ridgy elevations, and are
intcresected by many streams and a per
fect network of lakes. Eighty miles
north commences the immense pine
forest of the Wood Cress, in which
large armies could lie concealed. It is
a region well suited for defence by
guerilla forces, like those of the Metis,
especially when they have the sym
nathy and aid of their red neighbors
and kinsmen. But it is not at all likely
that there will be any protracted war
fare. In fact, the events of the Red
River affair have repeated themselves
with an absurd and really saddening n
delity saddening, at least, to one' who
notes how little has been the gain from
eerience. there have been discon
tent and complaints, netdected, not be
cause the authorities were ill-disposed,
but because they were too far off, and
loo much occupied with other matters.
Then follows an uprising, with Riel and
other leaden who had formerly figured
m the Keu Kiver troubles, at the head.
A list of demands is put forth, most of
them reasonable enough, and such as
any government should be glad to
grant. I he hnglisl. l'rovince of On
tario is tn a blaze of excitement, while
(as in the Red River affair) the trench
population of eastern Canada, to a
man, sympathizes with the malcontent
Mitis. It is easy to foresee that the
result will be the same as before an
early collapu: of the insurrection, a
brief outlawry of its leaders, and a con
cession of nearly all that they desire.

that although many Indians
or seem even to be learcd. Thi, of
itself, is good evidence tint the natives
have been fairly well tre.itcd, both by
the Canadian Government and by the
settlers. In fact, the class of border
ruffians, who look upon the Indians as
wild beasts and shoot them at sight,
docs not seem to exist in Canada.
There is no root of personal bitterness
between the two races, such as exists in
this Country and makes our Indian
problem so difficult of solution.
The future l'arkman will find many
striking figures and picturesque ele
ments in the story of these Northwest
ern commotions. He will see much to
praise in the conduct of the settlers and
the troops. His sharpest censures he
will probably feel inclined to direct
against the fatuity which could allow
two outbreaks to occur, from precisely
the same cause, within the short space
of fifteen years. Then, if he is an
American, he will probably bethink
himself of the monotonous succession
of Indian wars which have fringed with
blood the advancing line of our own
Western frontier, and the stone which
he was about to throw will.droi) from

have been much higher. In 1873 the
amount was more than $8,000,000. In
1875 it was more than $7,000,000,
while from 1828 to 1852 it was less
than $1,000,000 a year. In 1814 only
$1,800 was appropriated for the Dis
trict of Columbia, and it was not until
1837 that the yearly proportion reached
$1,000,000. It is interesting to look,
over the items of permanent improve

the original cost of the buildings and
their repairs, furnishing and keeping in

not exactly correct, is approximately so.
It is less .rather than greater than the
actual cost, some of the minor expenses

The relation between royal person
ages and literary men have always been
unconventional. Carlv le had an inter
view with Queen Victoria, and the
position of l'russia as a European power
came up lor discussion. 1 lie queen
has a well-known aversion to sitting
down. Carlylc was accustomed to sit
and talk, and, perhaps a little to dot;
mattze. " I think, your majesty, as
this is likely to be a big subject we had
better be seated before wc discuss it."
The queen sat and listened, and was
delighted with the historian. But then
Carlyle had a frankness about him that
may have been a relief after so many
courtiers. The ignorance of the younc
prince at Oxford has considerably sur
prised his tutor. It is said that it was
necessary to explain to him the exist
ence of a dog tax as a source of
national revenue, and of the Magna
Charta as one of the great factors in
the working of the constitution. Out
side his book-room his knowledge
beems so be more extensive. When
he got on the river, he sought to show
a new stroke to a fellow-student That

incident mat occurred when he was
Vice-President, on one of his journeys
homeward from Philadelphia, then the
national capital. The landlady of a
hotel where he stayed had just returned
from the funeral of a young relative.
"Hut, Mr. Jefferson," said sh,e, "we
have one comfort in our affliction. We
hare the consolation of knowing that
ever) thing was done for him which
could be done. He was bled, sir, six
and twenty times."
The comersaiion was about bishops,
and one fervent dame said; "How
good the dear llishop of Peterborough
is ! What a good man I" Instantly a
gentleman replied : "There- is no merit
