Robt. Coltman, Jr., at Masonic Hall
on Suuday evening, xvas large, all the

a pleasant, easy, talker, aiul Is
thoroughly familiar xvith his subject,
xvhich xvas confined to tho mission
woik of tlio pliysioiau among tho celes
tials. Among other things, tho doctor
said "just xvhy China is called the
Celestial Empire,' is more than any
one xvho lias ever beou there can tell.
Thcro is nothing celestial about them,
their life, 'or their religion. They arc
a very perverse people, and do not
take to anything nexw The life of the
missionary, bo tlioy either physicians,
preacher or teachers, is one of con
stant toil. Tlio first missionary to
China xvorked ten years without eon
verting a soul. Although ueaily every
church has a missionary in that coun
try, there are only two missionaries to
ex cry million of Chinese. In their
xvoik tho phxsicians and the pieachors
go hand in hand. Tho intelligent
pliXsiciau is enabled to reach the peo
ple in in an wsixs that aro not open to
tho pieaeher. Tlio Chinese are subject
to many disoases and deformities that
their medichie men cannot treat suc
cessfully. These eases aro sought out
and the patients aro taken to the mis
sion hospital, and in. the majority of
cases are successfully treated, and by
this means the people aro brought into
contact xvith the foreigner and
strengthens his confidence in tho
stranger and his teachings of tho gos
pel." Dr. Coltman, Jr., xvill, during
his stay here give another lecture on
the samo subject.

Tlio Grand Canyon Railroad.
Tho outlook for the building of tho
Flagstaff and Grand Canyon railroad
is very favorable. Advices from
parties iu the cast W'ho hax'e the matter
in hand state that it is noxv possible to
get tho required capital for tho build
ing of tho load. Flagstaff has raised
nearly $18,000 to bo given to the com
pany that builds the road, this aside
from tho franchise xvhich exempts the
load fioiu taxation for txx-enty years
and the right of xx-ay has also been
assured. This liberality on the part of
