tlie   animals    iu    slaugh
ter-houses, which, after being pole-
axed, have their skins distended by
the subcutaneous usage of the blowpipe, in order to facilitate the flaying of the hide. Thus, distended
by artificial means, your body ih-
creases in volume and loses its density to such a degree as to enable
you to*1 float on the water like'-a
well-bunged cask, and your body
actually becomes a buoy. A contemporary facetiously remarks :*-—
"You see it is exceedingly simple ;
the only necessary implements are
what everyone should possess*1—A

glass. AU you have to do if you
are thrown into the sea is to take a

looking-glass against another one, so

then carefully cut a small hole at
the bottom of your mouth and inflate yourself, taking care to undo
your coat, if cut to the figure, so as
to allow for the increase of waist;
or, better still, push your walking-
stick down your back and attach
your coat to it as a sail. You can
now go to sleep until rescued, but if
of a wakeful turn of mind you can
smoke and look out for a passing
boat. But why should we limit
ourselves when possessed of this
natural Boyton suit to using it in
cases of drowning? Why not utilize it at the seaside and break up
the pleasure bont extortionist 1 But
after having inflated ourselves, is it
all right about getting back to the
normal, Dr. Silvester, or shall we
have to be pricked, or jumped on,
or run through a mangle? We
shall postpone our experiments till

A Cool Proposition.
The time is again favorable for what
might be called a peaceful partition of
Asia; an actual partition of part, and
fixed future line of partition of the
remainder. This oan be accomplished
only by a wiso recognition of the manifest destiny of that quarter of the
«li»be. It is idle for Kngland to be
making continual protests against Russian advances and occupations. Such
protests are mere wind. Russia is nut
likely to bo moved by them, nor England ablo to enforce them. But, whatever Russia and England agree about
with reference to Asia, whether Syria,
Persia or China, will be done. No
power can afford to interfere.
The natural course of events indicates tbo possession of Asia by Europe-
Wise statesmanship in Russia and England can determine the future so that
Asia sball be practically possessed as
Russia and England may agree. The
attitude of hostility which these two
great powers have long held is very
absurd wheu ull interest of the two
are rather common than antagonistic*
They should bo allies and friends to
accomplish what both desire. The old
balance of power question in Europe
has long ceased to exist. Now every
nation is for itsolf. Separate alliances
are sought. Germany, Austria, eaoh
desires to show Russia reasons for
alliance with one or the other. Newspaper correspondents, too often now
the most ignorant aud latest to learn
the truth, advertise from week to week
discoveries of new bargains between
powers. All theso relate to the ghosts
of old dead and buried subjects. No
une has dreamed of suggesting a peaceful alliance, offensive aiid defensive,
between Russia and England.
Why should it not be 1 Iu regard to
physical power it would be tho strong'
est possible alliance, and' the rest of
Europe would not be able to resist it
if it camd*to auy question of war. In
regard to the future of tha eastern
world it would determine the destiny
of Asia nnd the prosperous sovereignties of Russia and England over the
north and south portions. Those two
powers oould with little difficulty agree
on a map of Asia, whioh, so far as the
desires of the two are concerned, would
mark a lino of division from the Mediterranean to the Pacific. So strong
would be the allied powers that, they
could afford to disregard the wishes of
the other European powers and ignore
the doubtful aud unsubstantial footing
held by sumo in Eastern Asia. But
there need be no such considerations.
Neither Russia nor England desires
what any other power wants there,
tinless it be that both are interested in
the preservation of commercial inter-
eats, which will be far more securely
preserved by agreements now than by
collisions sure to come in the future.
Besides, thu interests of Russia and
England do mm id peaceful alliance in
Europe. Since England has come into
• possession of Egypt there is only folly
and no wisdom in the exclusion of
Russia from Constantinople. Her
possession of thu Black Soa is a fixed
fact. Her possession in near time of
a port on the Mediterranean, in spite
of all the rest of Europe, is manifest
destiny. England could well afford to
withdraw all objection to a Russian occupation of Constantinople, taking in
return the absolute possession of Egypt
and the resulting concession which
Russia would willingly make in Asia
in exchange for this concession to her
ancient aiid cherishsd desire-?.
The idea of a peaceful aud permanent alliance and agreement between
England and Russia seems startling
only because bf the common notion
that the interests of the two nations
have been antagonistic, which they
have never been. England has never
wanted for heraelf what she haa struggled to prevent Russia from acquiring
The two powers hnve but to recognize
the fact that neither wants what the
other wants, that no other power has
any reasonable interest in tlie subjects
of their treaty, aiid that thoy have but
to agree, and defy the world to interfere. Such an alliance is not likely to
lie madt). Only wise men can make
it, and neither in Russian nob in English councils are wise men very plenty.
Hut if it be not formed, it is a manifest
destiny that Hii.-.si-i will possess pretty
much all of Asia that England has not
already appropriated.—2v. Y, Journal

Our Defences.
A despatch from Ottawa, tinted
the 28th ult, says: "It is announced tlmt the fortification question of
British Columbia will be left in
abeyance for some time until tlie
Canadian Pacific Railway is completed." This looks like an indication that the defences of this province are to be arranged upon a basis
of usefulness and common sense and
not for the purpose of forwarding
mere selfish schemes. It seems to
be recognized us a fact that tlie terminal works of tlio O.P.R. will be
worth defending, und thut the military protection of Victoria is not
deemed sufficient protection for the
wholo of British Columbia, Tho
delay in selecting a site for the barracks mny result in the adoption of
tho recommendation of Col. Holmes,
or it may not, but a delay until the
completion of the C.P.R. must mean
that the defences are expected to be
influenced very greatly by the railway. As the C.P.R. has no property
and no interests at Victoria, or anywhere on Vancouver Island, the
delay alluded to in the despatch
oannot be intended to refer to Victoria or Esquimalt. It must refer
to mainland defences, and we shall
be greatly surprised if it does not
come to pass that the entrance to
Burrard Inlet is recognized as the
most important place in the whole
province for fortifications. The
Fraser River will, of course, be protected in such a way as to prevent
its being mnde uso of by a hostile
fleet. Burrard Inlet ought to be
fortified because in it will be located
thc terminus of the Canadian railway, tlie great highway over whicli
troops and munitions of war would
undoubtedly come in caso of hostilities.
the Times are seen in Mr. Npwland's
case. For centuries efibrts have
been mnde at such regulation, and
tho result, one must admit, is extremely disappointing. It is surely
easier to suppress the traflic than to
regulate it. When a man gets license to sell, he cannot be regulated
in sucli a way as to prevent such
occurrences as took place at Simil-
kameen. But if all liquor had been
contraband, and liable to confiscation upon discovery, the situation
would be greatly simplified.

Hippress its unliceuaui
appointment of officio)
that their* instructions
now it Iluppeiied.
I'hc Colituybian does not confine itself
to the triitli iu its attempt to make out a
ease against the holders of licenses at
Granite Creek. The shooting of Mr.
Newhuuls wub purely accidental; no altercation had taken place between liim
and the cowboy; and no conversation
uver passed between thc two men. If
liiiuoi* is not sold there legally it will be
sold illegally, and already illicit dealers
arc awanniug iuto the country from Far-
well and south of the boundary. The
Columbian Ignores that fact. It ought
to he the policy of thc government to
confine tlie traffic within legal bound, to
used sale and bythe
icieiit officers to sce[
notions are fully carried
out.—Victoria Times,
The information upon the strength
of which The Columbian made tiie
statements to which exception is
taker, by the Times was obtained
from a letter in possession of Mr.
Moresby, governor of the gaol. That
letter stated that the shooting occurred in a drunken brawl, and that
it was a consequence of the opening
of a saloon at thc new mines. Subsequent enquiries have fully confirmed that statement. Louson, the
cowboy who shot Newland, says he
was under the influence of liquor
when the shooting took place, aud
that there were several others on
the spree with him and indulging in
pistol practice. Ho does not know
whether Newland did any shooting
or drinking, and there seems to be
no evidence that ho did. This is
the only part of Thk Columbian's
statement open to question, for it
is probable Newland was quite
blameless in the whole matter,
There is no doubt at nil that the
saloon is directly responsible for the
accident—wo believe it was purely
an accident, and it came very near
being a fatal one for Newland, The
Times has a theory that the sale of
liquors in such places should be
regulated, but not forbidden. It
says whiskey will bo sold illegally
if it can't bo sold according to law,
and tlie province might as woll have
a reveuue from the sale. We have
a very different theory. The consequences of the liquor traflic are
bud enough, it must be admitted, in
the best regulated community. In
such places as Granite Creek, where
the ordinary restraints of civilized
society aro to a great extent wanting, it is positively and terribly
dangerous to admit this maddening
draught. Every person must know
this. The saloon at Similko-
mcen was not opened for any good
purpose. Tt was opened because
tho person who opened it believed
lio saw an ensy way to secure a
large sum of money. At two bits a
glass for the kind of stuff usually
sold for whiskey in such places the
profit is simply enormous; and
whero there are plenty of customors
ii man may make n small fortune
inside of the first year. It matters
not to him what aro the consequences of the traffic, so long as tlie
money comes in. The fruits of the
"regulation" principle advocated by
NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORU.
Nnw York, Sept. 28.—An Ottawa
special says the British minister at Wash •
ington has forwarded to the Dominion
government & copy of the governor of
Alaska to the United States, rcuarding
tho boundaries between British Columliia and Alaska. From what can he
learned the United States government
will be invited to co-operate and have a
joint survoy made next year. Nothing
could be dono till then, as no appropriation has been made for the work by the
Dominion pariiamcut.
The Times* Ottawa dispatch says the
recent discovery of gold m the vicinity
of the imaginary boundary line dividing
British Columbia from Alaska has led
tlie people of that province once more to
press their claims on the Dominion govornment to have the boundary definitely
determined; It is represented that unless this is done a aoriojs complication
may arise, as it is impossible at present
for those locating mining claims to ascertain whether thoy are in British Columbia or on United States territory. Any
step in this direction will have to he
carried out jointly with the United
States government which will probably
bo asked to co-operate with the Dominion government in fixing a boundary line
at au early date.
London, Sept. 28.—O'Donnell, Home
Rule member of parliament for Dungan-
non, has retired from tho canvas iu his
district, Ho deblnves timt tlie Parnellites have pcrsisto: tly insulted James
Carlisle McCoan, formerly Homo Rule
member for Wloklow, but now the Liberal candidate for Lancaster, Jofm O'Connor Power, member of parliament for
Mayo, and himself. I'nrnellism, O'Donnell claims, has reduced tlio popular
organization both in Ireland aud America
by its schemes for obtaining money,
sapped the foundation of civil government by abusing nominees, and fostered
deceptive confidences by chinning triumphs in the adoption by parliament of
every worthless IriBh measure, O'Donnell was vice-president and honorary
secretary of the "Irish Homo Rule Confederation of Great Britain."
London, Sept. 29.—A despatch from
Mozambique received to-day gives details
of a battle between thc French troops,
under Admiral Miatfc, nud the Hovas, at
Tarapal, Madagascar, on Sept. 10th last,
and claims that the French forces wero
defeated. The Hovas occupied a strongly entrenched position, whicli Admiral
Minot attempted to capture. After very
severe fighting, lasting fully two hours,
the French were compelled to fall back
to Tamatave, which they did iu an orderly manner, with a loss of thirty men
lulled and wounded.
London, Sept. 29.—Alderman John
Staples, F. S. A., was to-dny elected
lord mayor of London.
Calcutta, Sept. 2!).—Disastrous Hoods,
covering an area of 3,500 Bipmro miles,
comprised iu the presidency of all the
largest and most populous of the twelve
main divisions of British India. A
great amount of property i-i destroyed
and a number of lives lost. Many families have boon made destitute. Cattle
and portable goods of every description
have been carried away. The govornment authorities arc distributing provisions and clothes and doing all they
can to relieve tlio sufferers. False Point,
which was thought to bo the best harbor
between Calcutta and Bombay, was
struck by a storm wave on thc 22nd aud
swept so completely that most of thc
inhabitants perished.
Beelik, Sept. 29. — Advices from
Hanoi, tho capital of Tonquin, says thc
black flags surround tho province of
Brendinh. Cholera is racing at Hanoi.
Average number of deaths daily is thirty.
A Chinese general is at the head of a
large force that has invaded Annain
against tho French.
Londoh, Oct, 1.—The Times' correspondent at Constantinople thus summarizes Turkey's position: Turkey has no
army ready to march; no stores; no
money in the treasury; no administration; no energy. She must submit to
the inevitable,
Berlin, Oct. I.—The result of the
recent interview between De Gloi'a, Russian prime minister, and Prlneo Bismarck will be to restrain Scrvia, Greece
and Montenegro from attacking Turkey.
Otherwise Austria would, it is thought,
make a bold striko for Salomon, and
possibly for Constantinople, causing a
blaze in Russia which would end in a
Kuropcan war.

Oapt. Waller's Death,—The
Whatcom Reveille gives an account of
this sad event Which contains some additional particulars, j It saya: "An unfortunate affair, resulting in the losa of
two lives, occurred in the Bay near
the Chuckannt stone (pineries during
tho gnle that prevailed last Saturday.
Capt. John Waller, of Point Roberta,
accompanied by a young man whose
name cannot uow be ascertained, left
this city Saturday forenoon in a fishing
sloop for the purpoae of securing a load
of stone with which to construct a fireplace in Oapt. Waller's residence at
Point Roberts. , About five o'clock in
the evening the men engaged'at the
quarries observed the sloop beating off
a few hundred yards from shore.
Shortly afterward n sudden squall
struck thu boat, immediately capsizing
the same. The men on sliore heard
the calls for help, and within five min*
utes thereafter the sloop, its contents
uud the two men hnd disappeared beneath the surface of the dark, angry
waters. Although strict search has
been made iu the bay and along the
shore line, no truce of the bodies has
as yet been found.. The occurrence it
truly a lamentable one, for the reason
that Cupt. Waller leaves a family consisting of wife and four children, who
nre now probably watching far out ovor
the waters surrounding Point Roberts
for the return 6fr Hio husband and
father who had gone to provide supplies for the wmtor months that are
coining. Information of the Bad occurrence will probably reach them tomorrow, vi* Seminhmoo. Cnpt. Waller wns well known to the sailors and
steamboat men of Puget Sound and
the Gulf of Georgia, having been matter of several different crafts in these
waters. For the past few yours lm has
been engaged iu fishing at Point
Roberts. Cupt. Boeder of this oity
bus assumed thn sad duty of notifying
the family, by letter, of tho terrible
misfortune."

The Provinoial Exhibition.
SPLENDID WEATHER, AND A GOOD SHOW.
The fifth annual exhibition of the
British Columbia Agricultural Society
w-as opened at this oity on Thursday
morning. At the invitation of the
directors tho lion, Jno. Robson, provincial secretary, delivered tlio
(II'KSINO SPEECH.
Ho said it a Horded him much pleasure
to open tho Titli exhibition nf this society. Through the kindness of the
directors he had been allowed to examine the exhibits inside the building.
Considering the unfavorable nature of
the season, tho show was very good,
particularly the cereals, roots, fruits,
dairy products, and manufactures. At
the Bnmo time ho wns bound in honesty
to say that it was not suoh an exhibition of thu resources of the country ai
it ought to be. Ho was sorry tho
farmers had not come out as they
ought to have done. Wheu it is remembered that upwards of $500,000
were overy year sent out of thin provinco for brendatnil's, the great importance nf encouraging and developing
agriculture would be manifest. How
much better off tho people would be if
this amount was kept in the country!
It ought to be the first concern of thu
farmers to stop this coiwtiuit and unnecessary drain upun our resources.
Some persons brought nothing to th*
exhibition hi-came the trouble and expense were morn than thc immediate
gains. He regretted to see that some
of pur lending farms wero not represented here at nll. If the farmers
neglected to come forward, the exhibition must prove a failure. It was a
grout mistake to luok only at immediate results -hilt matter of this sort,
aud people who neglected to exhibit
because of the trouble and expense
woro not doing their duty. If each
farmer would bring the best he had,

era—the railway era—and wo muBt
bring ourselves up to a higher standard
uf excellence if wo oxpected to compute with the industries of the provinces and territories lying east of us.

The dnors of the exhibition building
were then thrown upon, nnd the exhibits underwent examination, In aome
respects the exhibition is in advance
uf that of 1883, but there ought tn
have beun a very muoh larger showing.
In fancy wurk and the nr'.i there is a
decided improvement, There are
somo splendid samples nf this class
Farm products are not by any means
as numerous as they ought tu be, but
there are good samples. There is a
great show of buttor, and somo magnificent specimens of ruots nud fruits.
The Royal City Planing Mills had a
room full of its manufactures, which
formed a most complete and creditable
exhibit. We believe this collection
will go tu the Colonial exhibition at
London. The show of stook was poor.
There weru some fine horses und a few
other animals worthy of notice, and
Mr. Perrin's poultry bIiow has never
been equalled in this province. Want
of time and space compels us to reserve
any mure extended notice till next
issue.    Yesterday morning
SIR  CHARLES TUITEK,
accompanied by Hun. Joseph Trutch,
Hon. Wm. Smithe, Hun. Jno. Robson, and a number uf gentlemen from
tho east, came over frum Granville and
visited the exhibition. At the door
of the building he was presented with
the following address, read by the president of the association:
To the Hon. Sir Chas. Tupper, K. O. Af.
Q., G, B., Canadian high Commissioner, etc.:
Sin:—The officers of the British Columbia Agricultural Association desire
to present you a hearty welcome to this
proviuce, and to tlieir annual exhibition.
They have great pleasure in congratulating you upon the new honors you have
received since your last visit to the
Pacific province, and upon tlie near completion of tho great transcontinental tail-
way with which your name will always
stand so closely identified. Tho completion of this new avenue of commerce,
they believe,, will tend to cement more
closely the widely separated settlements
of the western dominion, and to promote
the prosperity of the entire country.
The society regrets that' other engagements prevented you from being present
at the opening of the exhibition, but it
is hoped that au examination of the exhibits before you will enable you to form
tin opinion as to the capabilities of this
fair province, notwithstanding the fact
that the past season has been one of extraordinary drought, and that here, until
very . recently, little attention has heen
givon to agriculture. We are looking
forward, however, with confidence to an
era of increased activity upon the opening of our railway, as a result of increased population aud new facilities for
reaching markets hitherto inaccessible to
us. The directors hope your visit may
be personally a pleasure to you, ami that
its prinoipal objcot, the promotion of the
great colonial exhibition iu London, may
be entirely successful.
■Ino. KlRKMND, lYest.

Sir Charles Tupper replied by thanking the directors for their kind invitation and welcome tu this very interesting exhibition. He regretted that
circumstances prevented him spending
Thursday in the city, as he hud first
arranged; but short as his visit had
been, he had seen enough tu show him
how groat and varied were the resources of this province. Tho object of
his visit, they know, wus to promote
the great Indian and Colonial exhibition in Loudon next yoar. He was
greatly pleased to be ablo again to visit
the people of Now Westminster. When
ho had the pleasure of visiting this
city four years ago he hud expressed
the opinion that by the year 1801 this
provinco would hnve railway connection with the other parts of Canada.
To-day we were able to congratulate
ourselves and the country upon the
fact that the great transcontinental
railwny would bo completed certainly
before the end of the present month,
six years hefore the time predictod by
him. Ho believed the world did nut
afford another example of a wurk in
which so mnny difficulties wero encountered that was accomplished with
such marvellous rapidity. Ho wns
sitting in Guildhall recently when Sir
Edward Smithe said he Imd 'been
struck, iu visiting America, with the
great enterprise displayed by the people of the U. S. as compared with
Canadians, Replying tu that remark
he (Sir Charles) had pointed out that
wheu 40 millions of poople in the
U. S. had built a railway from Chicago to San Francisco it was regarded
as a wonderful achievement, but
five millions of Canadians hud, accomplished a much greater work
in it much shorter lime. He felt sure
the progress he now saw in British
Columbia since he visited it fuur years
ngo was utterly insignificant in comparison with the progress of the four
years to come. The completion of
railway cannection with other parts of
Canada wuuld place this provinco in a
position to secure the rapid development of its immense resource--. He
believed the mineral wealth brought
to light by the construction of the C.
PR. would alone be sufficient to pay
the whole cost of tho rond. East of
the mountains, and in the mountains
valuable beds of anthracite and bituminous coal had been discovered. Iu
this province that most valuable uf all
minerals, coal, was found of n superior
quality, and associated with that wero
iron mines second to nono iu the world
in richness. With the great Northwest lying behind, tho conjunction of
these two minerals would plnco this
provinco in a position of Iho tirst importance with a viow to manufacturing
industries. Then there was the cli
mate, which was unexcelled anywhere.
When peoplo in England objected tu
Canada as n place for emigration, ho
always had great pleasure iu referring
them to the unequalled climate of Uritish Columbia. He had visited n great
many parts of the world, but if he
wished to enjoy tho finest climate lie
had ever seen lie would choose to make
his homo in British Oolumbia. Hure
also there wero unequalled facilities
for tho growth and development uf
the finest qualities uf fruits. He had
made arrangements to have samples
of these fruits preserved with salicylic
acid so as to show tho exact form and
appearance of them at the London exhibition next year, and also somu sum-
pies of the magnificent vegetables tho
firovincc so liberally produces. Hu
toped also to receive from this province before the exhibition closed noxt
fnll some samples of fresh fruit and
vegetables so that tho poople in London might ascertain (ho flavor of
thom as woll as admire their beauty.
In this ho hoped to receivo assistance from the people of British Columbia. In no other way could they
so surely be promoting tlieir uwn interests. With its tish, its minerals,
its timber, its agricultural productions,
and its magnificent climate, it would
be strange if thc eyes of tho world
were nut drawn to the resources
and attractions of this province; and
if tho people nf England could look
into tho intelligent faces of tho people
of British Columbia, as hu was now
looking, they would know that this
country wns bound to take a high position of honor and influence. He
would do his best tu promote tho interests nf British Columbia. Thu provincial government had generously
offered tu provide a complete exhibit
of both the resources and educational
system of the province, nud it would
be a pleasure for him to speak woll of
tfie province. Gud had given ub a
country second tu nono in tho world,
and ho was always proud to be identified with its progress. It would be a
great pleasure for liim to visit Now
Westminster when the railway hud
been completed, and he hoped to find
here evidences of continued tirosperity
Sir Charles Tupper's speech was
loudly applauded, and he received
threo hearty cheers n't its close.

According lo announcement tho annual exhibition of tho Chilliwhack
Agricultural Socioty was huld ut tho
exhibition grounds, on Tuesday, the
30th September. In tho enrly morning there was a brisk shower, but it
cleared off long before noon, and tho
day was all that could bo wished.
Thero was considorablo disappointment, however, at the smalluess of
tho show, and thu lack of .interest
manifested by tho peoplo of tho settlement. The quantity of stuff shown
wus leas than last year, and tho attendance was, at least, not larger. In
quality somo of tho exhibits were certainly excellent. There were quite a
number of horses exhibited: Mr.
Wm. Chudsey's lino Norman Purchoron
stallion was certainly a credit to any
settlement, and deservedly took first
priue. Mr. Jno. Reece and Mr. Miller also showed Btallions, Mr. H. Webb
showed a very handsome yoke uf oxen
(twins) which took first prize, and Mr.
C. Chadsey had a remarkably largo
yoko for wliich no prize was givon.
Mr. C. Chadsey showed a vory good
bull, and a, calf thnt would bo hard to
bent. There was an excellent display
of horses. Messrs.' Mcliao & Campbell had a pure bred Clydesdale mare
iu ono of thu draught teams which
was deservedly admired and took first
prizo. This mare is T years old, and
wns imported from oastern Canada.
Messrs. McRae & Campbell also received a prize for their fino black
buggy horse. Mr. A. Evans, Mr.
Webb, Mr. Ryder. Mr. Wells, Mr.
Bowes, and others, exhibited fine
horses, uud the display of both ladies'
and gentlemen's saddle horses was
large mid creditable. Of sheep aud
pigs there wore very fow, but Mr. G.
Bamford showed some excellently bred
sheep, as fine as one would wish tu
see. Tho poultry show was small, but
there wero a few fine samples. Inside
the building there waa a fair display,
but in point of numbers, nnd in some
of the classes iu point of quality also,
tho exhibits were not up to thoso of
fonder years. Thoro were numerous
exhibits of very fine buttor, and tho
cheese, as overybody knows, was first-'
class. There wero somu excellent
samples of apples, pears, potatoes,
com, beets, turnips, melons, mid other
vegetnblos. In grain there were good
samples, but .not much variety. Thero
was it good display of needle aud fancy
work, nnd a few specimens uf drawing
and painting worthy of mention.
Corp. Wm. Hull showed somo cases of
stuffed birds executed and arranged as
artistically as anything wo have over
scon of thc kind.. The Messrs. Calbick Bros, showed a pattern of a now
butter worker which seemed admirably
ndaptod to the purposo fur which it
was intended. Before reading tho list
of awards, tho Hon. Provincial Secretary, who was present, gave a brief
address at the request of the officers
of the society. He expressed pleasure -in being presont and said people
might say what they liked about tho
learned professions, but agriculture
was the bono and sinew of tho country. But in order that it might occupy
tho position its importance assigned tu
it, farmers must be making constant
progress. Hitherto many of them
liad riot carried un farming ns it ought
to bo carried oii. Thoro woru reasons
for tins iu tho early days; but vory
soon wo would bo brought into competition with the farmers of the oldor
parts of the country, and we must
improve both our Btock and our farms
or wo would find ourselves forced to
tako a back scat. If farmers themselves did not introduce uew methods,
and work upon a more scientific plan,
thoy need not bo surprised to find
tlieir sons turning their backs upon
the farm and seeking employment in
somo other sphere of industry. It
wos tho duty of ovory farmer to en-
deavor to make farming so attractive
thnt his sons would bo proud of the
industry. Ho was very sorry to bo
'compelled to say that tho present
exhibition is somewhat of a disappointment. Tho oxhibits insido the
building wero very creditable. Tho root
crops wore good, tho buttor wus suburb
both in quantity and quality, tho fruit
wns creditable. But the number of
entries wns not nt all what it ought to
he. Ho regretted tn learn that aome
of tho best funncrs had refused to
exhibit on account of disappointments
or misunderstandings at former exhibitions. This wns much to bo regretted.
Tho motto of each member of tho community shuuld bu excelsior, aud each
should feel n personal responsibility
for thu success of tho show. Ho hud
hoard peoplo say, "Oh! I hityo botter
stuff than that at home," Out upon
such a declaration I If you hud better
stuff why didn't you bring it? If each
farmer would do the best, he could, tho
show wuuld Willi mt doubt be a mng*
nitieeut success. Farmers should uot
bo concerned so much about prizes as
about the success of Iho exhibition.
He entreated thom to put the best
foot forward, and to take that position
in tho province that their magnificent
resources entitled them to. Wo were
now upon the verge bf a great revolution that would follow tliu completion
of tho O. P.11., nud if wo didn't put our
bost font forward we would probably
get left.

EniTOli Columbian, — I understand
that a so-called "public meeting" wus
held at Port Moody on the evening of
Monduy last, which meeting is accounted
for thus: It seems that a meeting hnd
previously been held by the "executive
committsc" of a "progress league"—
whatever that means. At such meeting
this handful of self-elected committeemen resolved to take chargo of thc governor-general's expected visit, representing themselves ns the. people of Port
Moody. It was a rovivtcntioii of "the
three tailors of Toolcy street." It is represented that the three tailors—or rather, the aforesaid executive committee-
got up nn address to be presented to his
excellency. They nlso, I am told, voted
themselves iu as a "grievance committee," to rcprosunt to the governor thc
wrongs of Port Moody; uud as none of
their own august body was supposed to
hnve "slack-jaw" enough to properly
deal with that momentous subject, thuy
had gone abroad and enguged Mr, Dole
to lend them a torrent, or so, of his eloquence for the occasion. This Monday's
meoting was called to get the Moodiaus
to ratify the action of the Tooley street
executive; and they did! Some of them
expressed a desire to see the address they
were supposed to be about presenting
Lord LandBdownc. Thoy were promptly
told that Biieh nn insane proceeding could
not be thought of, but, at thc same time,
assued that the address, when it did np-
fiear, would provo to be one of the moat
irilliuut productions that evor emanated
from tongue or pen. But wait until Mr.

Agricultural Meeting.
The annual meeting of thu British
Columbia Agricultural Association was
held at the Council Chambers
Thursday night. Tho attendance was
not so largo as it ought to havo
beon. The president, Mr. Jno. Kirkland, delivered  the following address:
Gentlemen.—It is gratifying to know
that we meet together under favorable
auspices. The season has been a propitious one for the farmers. An noun*
dant harvest has been secured, and, with
a fow exceptions, iu excellent condition,
for which may wo not fail to acknowledge the guiding hand of a beneficent
Creator. The object of our annual exhibition, I take, is to bring together specimens which will illustrate tlie condition
and progress of our province in the several departments of agriculture uud of
the mcclinnical skill and ingenuity of our
artizans, to facilitate thc interchange of
ideas relative to tfio methods which have
been employed iu accomplishing the most
successful results in the several departments on exhibition. It is gratifying to
know that causes wliich In tlm past havo
prevented n more rapid development in
agricultural products are, under the light
of experience and progressive improvement, gradually disappearing. The in-
orooso of the past two years has been
perceptibly very great, and the produc-
cupocity of ench suocoodiug year in
ti'       .      .
the future will be In n vastly increased
ratio to that of the past. It has long
beon a reproach to us that, with vast
ureas of land of unsurpnssod fertility, we
should be unable to supply thc demands
of honie consumption. It is gratifying
to know, however, that our resources are
becoming more generally known and appreciated, and with increased facilities
of i-oinmuuioation wo muy confidently
hope for large additions to our ranks,
and that our furming industry will
speedily take that postilion in the pro-
viiice to which its importance us the
chief factor of wealth in any community
so justly entitles it. Wo aro soon to
enter upon a new era in our history.
With the completion of our national
highway impbrtant changes will inevitably take place. Wc ahall be brought
into closer connection with our great
Northwest ns well as thu more populous
portions of the Dominion. An influx of
capital and of population to aid us in
developing our agricultural and othor resources may bo hoped for, new avenues
for tho interchange of commodities will
bo opened up, and it will be our duty
and privilege to be on the alert and to
profit by every favorable advantage in
our changed condition. We must grow
all the fruit we can, make all the butter
wo can, raise all the pork and lard we can,
improve the quality and increase the
number of our cattle, raise and fatten all
the sheep wo can, supply our own market with all the coarse grains we cou
rtage horses, lit H Webb, 2nd J V j sume, raise our own eggs and chickens
That "Tocsin ok thk Soul, thi: Din
nek BKU,,"as Byron calls it, suggests
no pleasing reflections to thc dyspeptic,
bilious sufferer. He pnrtakes, of course,
but the subsequent torment is egregious-
ly out of proportion to the quantity ot
food he eats, which lies undigested, a
weight like lead in his unhappy stom*

its name is Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Diacovery and Dyspeptic Cure.
No case is entirely hopeless.

Editor Columbian. — Perhaps you
will kindly allow space in your valuable
paper for the insertion of a few items
from Aldcrgrove settlement. The past
summer has witnessed great improvements in this flourishing new settlement.
Many settlors have come in during the
summer and now there aro many houses,
and clearings where a year ago u traveller would have looked in vain for a house
in which to pass the night. Lately there
has been established in this settlement
a post office which, had it been located
where the majority wished aud hoped it
would be, would havo been hailed by the
settlement as a great benefit, and as
meeting a need long felt iu this district.
As it is, by thc present arrangement, a
great many prefer having their mail
come us formerly, by way of I-anglcy
Trairie. People feel they nave not been
consulted in the matter, and the post
oflico established at the request of a few-
parties where it will be moat convenient
to thentselvea, and in the place requested
by aaid parties, without reference to the
district interested. Outside a few individuals no one knew anything of the
proceedings taken, nud none knew nature
of correspondence, ns correspondence
from other sources received not bo much
as an answer. And instead of the matter being looked into, as it should have
been, the post office was established
where it is, and will be of thc leust convenience to the greater part of the settlement, instead of being put where the
only store in the district is situated, being thereby convenient to every one,
being 111 centre of district, and wliere a
vote of the people would put it.

W. S. Gilbert, in a lottor to the

about 60 feet by 40 feet, with 0 porch or
railed passageway all around it cxtru. It
is handsomely painted, with ample and
almost entire glass section, romprramg
fully one-third of ita height in windows,
and announces to all in broad letters that
it is the pavilion of that company, and
that Joseph Ruse, of (J8 King-street
Went, represents the company. Inside
no pains hnvo been spared to make it attractive, and certainly its designs have
succeeded. No one should visit (lie Exhibition without going through this pavilion, tliere he will tind a iittle pmadisi;
of music. Ihve are decorations, li-iml-
some pictures of tho Dominion factory
and of the present; store room of Mr,
Ruse, nud above all, pianos uud organs
of tin- most nrtistio aud unique designs.
The display of these instruments is grand
indeed, nud a splendid tribute to the
genius and skill of our Canadian iiiiuiu-
faoturers. Pianos and organs of every
style anil artistic design nro found here
—a parlor grand, squares, and uprights
of rose-wood, sntrn-wood with wninut
trimmings, ebony and gold, mahogany
and boryl walnut. A double manual
nnd pedal boss organ, with handsome
pipe top, faces tho visitor at the extreme
end us lie enters this pavilion. Tor company are organs of every style and design to suit tbe purchaser. The Company nlso exhibit with the degree of
triumph and merit the fact is worthy of
a cable despatch to them from Antwerp,
Germany, announcing that at u Crand
National Exhibition held there the Company had just carried otT the h'rst prize
over all competitors for its instruments.
This is certainly remarkable, though
when the rapid rise of this Company to
public favor and confidence is considered,
not ao remarkable us at first might seem,
Tho Company's success in honors, home
and international, is something remarkable. The exhibit on the grounds is
certainly attractive and will amply repay
u personal inspection and visit.
Sir Charles Tupper on Wednesday last
emphasized thc high compliment he paid
the Dominion Organ nnd Piano Company
at the opening of the London Kair, In
his address from the platform of the
Art Gallery, speaking of the great impetus Exhibitions gave to every industry
represented, he referred to the Canadian
exhibit at the Antwerp International
Exhibition, Belgium, and cited as an illustration of the wonderful progress this
country is making, the success of tho
Dominion Organ and Piano Compnny
there. He Said that this Compnny (the
Dominion Organ aud Piano Company)
had not only taken the highest award
tliere, the very highest the judges could
possibly confer over all other competi-
tors, from England, Franco, and Germany, the very centres of cultivated
classic music, countries justly celebrated
for their skill and acquirements iu musical knowledge, but these judges, who
comprised some of their ablest aud best
musicians, had declared furthor that the
instruments of this company wero superior to auy they had ever aeon, hoard, or
examined. With such a compliment
from such a source, in addition to their
success at this Exhibition, the Company
ought to feel content.

PMNEU'S OBNOXIOUS DUBLIN SPEECH.
Mr. Parnell, who was received witli
loud cheers, in rising to respond to
the totist of his health, aaid:—Mr. McCarthy and comradus, I ahall not venture to follow you, sir, in your kind
words regarding myself, and the feelings of the party towards myself, but
I will only say that in iny experience
of our parliamentary movomont during
the epoch wo liavo just closed I havo
always considered that 1 ought to think
a great deal more nnd to value my colleagues a groat deal more highly than
they should value me for my servico.
("No.") In looking back upon theso
years wo might perhaps to-night be
tempted to refer to our legislative
achievements; but I feel convinced
that I interpret your sentiments best
and moat fully, as I certainly express
my own, when I aay that each and all
of us have only looked upon the acts
—tho legislative enactments which wo
lmvo boen able to wring from an unwilling parliament—na moans toward
an end—(henr, and cheers)—thnt we
wmild havo at any time, in tho hour
of our deepest depression and greatest
discouragement, that wo should have
spumed and rejected any measure,
however tempting and howevor apparently for the benefit of our poople,
if we had beou able to detect that behind it lurked any danger to the legislative independence of our land. (Loud
and prolongedcheeriug.) Ami although
during this parliament which has just
expired we may have said vory little
about homo rule, very little ubout
legislative independence, very little
about
ItKPEALOI-TUE PNICW
— (cheers) —yot I know woll that
through each of your hearts the thought
of how those great things might bo
bost forwarded was nevor for a moment
absent—(loud cheers)—and that
body of Irishmen over met together
who havo more consistently worked,
and worked with u greater effect, for
that which must always he thu hopo of
our nation until ita realization arrives.
(Loud cheers.) We might, I say, refer to these legislative achievements.
We might refer to the land act—an
admirable measure in its way, even an
un thought of nieuauro, since many of
us have come into political life; even
within the time of tlie political life of
many of us an unthought of measure.
(Cheers.) We might refer to the arrears act. Wo might dwell on the
franchise act, under which almost manhood suffrage hud been conceded to
Ireland. We might recall to our recollection the redistribution act, under
which, despite the open hostility of
one party and the badly concealed
envy of the other, wo succeed in getting in the new parliament tho full
representation of Ireland without tho
loss of a single man. (Cheers.) But
these things, although important in
themselves, are uot, as I have said, tho
ond and aim of our oxistcneo aa a
party. (Hear, hear.) And although
wo cannot refuse, and novor havo refused, although wo have always and
wisoly mado it part of our programme
to gain for Ireland such concessions
ns might be got at tho time, provided
wo did not sacrilice greater and more
enduring national interests, yet wo
havo always got boforo us that wo
were sent from this country, not to
remain long in Westminstor. (hear,
hear, and cheers) but to remember
that it was for us to look upon our
presence thore as a voluntary ono, and
to regard our futuro, or our legislative future, as belonging to our own
native country of Ireland, (Loud
cheers.)   And
WHAT IS OUB PRESENT POSITION? ~
It is admitted by all parties that you
hnvo brought tho question of legislative independence to tho point of solution. (Hoar, hoar, and cheers.) ' It
is not a question of self-government
for Ireland. It is only a question of
how much of this self-government
they will bo able to cheat us of.
(Hear, hoar.) It is not now a question of whether the Irish people shall
decide their own destinies and their
own future; but it is a question with
—I was going to aay our English masters; but I ain afraid we cannot call
thom masters in Ireland—it is a question with them as to how far the day
that they consider tho evil day shall
be deferred. You are, therefore, entitled to say that bo far you have done
well. Vou have almost done miraculously well, and we hand to our successors an unsullied flag and a battle
more than half won, and a brilliant
history. (Hear, hear, and cheers.)
Wo now como to the question of tho
futuro. I Hupposo it will be necessary
for each of us to take a future colleague undor his wing in the now parliament. We shall each bo mated.
Wo shall each havo a nuw member to
conduct into the mysteries of an alien
assembly. (Laughter.) I have already spoken of thu past and of tho
immediate future, and I shall ask you
to accompany me for a moment a littlo
beyond tlmt to the time when Ireland,
having prudently and sagaciously selected her 80 or 85 representatives,
will have sent them over to the battle,
and, as wo all hopo and believe, the
final battle, the last battle. (Cheers.)
Wo have had resolutions about land
acts, franchise, municipal acts, laborers' acts, and so forth, all pointing to
the belief in our minds, as thoso who
nre primarly responsible for tho draft,
in,*-, uf our program tno, that it would
be n oner, an ry for ua to pay attention
as woll to remedial measures—in fact,
that there would bo time to pay attention to remedial nmanures beforo winning the final and great and ultimate
measure of all. (Cheers.) Now that
undoubtedly, although it cannot be
described aa putting tho cart before
the horso, yet I hopo that ii. may not
be ncceaaary for ua iu the new parliament to tlsvoto our attention to subsidiary measures (cheer*-) aud that it
may bo possible for us to havo a programme and a platform with only ono
plank (cheers) and that ono the
plank of national independence. (Re-
nowed chcora.) I fool convinced, Mr.
McCarthy and comrades, that our
great work and our sole work in tho
new parliament will be tho
KEHTOKATION OF OUll OWN I'AIU.IAME.VT.
(Hear, and cheers.) And when we
have obtained it, what will bn its functions and what will be its powers? Wo
Bhould require our now parliament to
do those things which wo have heen
asking the British parliament to do
for us. Wo shall require tlicm to
develop the Henly clause of tho land
act, to abolish evictions, landlord oppression and rack-renting (applause),
to make every tenant farmer the
owner uf his holding upon fair terms.
Wo should require that power to do
this shall be given to our parliament.
(Hear, hear.) We shall require our
new parliament to secure to the labor-
an a share in the heritage of the
land and comfortable houses. Wo
ahall not thon havo to dopond upon
tho halting action of ox oilicio board*
of guardinna. Wo shall rcquiro our
now parliament to build up tho industries of Ireland (cheers) to seo that
not only tho agricultural laborers, but
that the artisans (hear, hour), tho
working meu and thu mechanics of tho
towns, shall bo enabled to livo, and
theroby wo shall endeavor to keop our
own people at homo (hear, hear), to
afford profitable employment, and to
look after tho educational interests (if
the youth of Ireland, and to train
thom up in the way they should go,
both from a religious and a national
point of view. (Hear, hoar.) Wo
havo, therefore, gentlemen, a grent
work before us both in tho English
house of commons for a whilo, and
also in tho Irish Chamber (loud applause), whero wo shall not have a
houso of lords to cumber us. (Renewed applause.) But it is the people
of Ireland on whom the result of this
struggle finally depends. (Hear, hear.)
I believe tho next body of IriBh members sent to Westminster will bo woll
chosen, that they will fight and that
they will win their battlo so far as they
can win it. But it is undoubtedly
upon our peoplo at home lhat tho
muiu burden rests. (Hear, hear.) lt
is they and they alouu whu can now
defeat the Irish cause. If they maintain the fixity of purpose and the
tho union of the last five years, nc
power on earth can resist them.
(Applause.) I confide in the judgment
and in the patriotism of our peoplo
(applause) and in' tho new electorate
(applause) I believe that they will
not be wanting (applause); that tlie
groat masses now brought within the
constitution will do their duty to tho
fullest extent (applause), and I therefore feel assured tliat the next Irish
party that will be assembled Bhall bo
thu laat in the Knglish and tho first in
thc restored Irish parliament. (Loud
cheers.)
Airing a Joss.
A hubbub arose in Chinatown yeaterday which attracted many whito
people to that locality. Some inquiry
resulted in securing a statement that
thia was the anniversary of the birthday of the Joss How Wong. One of
the Chinese companies claim this Joss
to he entitled especially to their respect. The Jobs is kept in Chinatown
in a Joss house in Sacramento stroet
most of tho time. Once a year, however, the carved wooden affair is taken
out and paraded through tho Chinatown lanes and streets by the members of this particular company. In
its rounds it is carried part of tho
way by a burly Chinaman personally,
whon it is supposed to bo too tired to
ride a hurse provided for it. At othor
times it is held on the horse. To
humor its supposed convivial turn it is
taken to tho Cliineso theatre and left
there over one night. After a supposed enjoyment of what passes among
the Chinese for a theatrical entertainment, it is thu next day taken from
tho theatre and carried back to tho
Jobb house. Yesterday How Wong
began Iub vacation. Today he will bo
taken back to tho Joss house by tho
procession.
How Wong is not ao gaudy as tho
procession which turned uut to honor
it. About two hundred Chinamen
attired themselves in the gayest colors,
put ou their heads hats having great
superficial area, and devoted themselves
to various uses. All Chinatown turned
out to view the show mid exploded
some firecrackers directly in thc lino
of tho march, thereby stopping at times
tho triumphal march of the Josi temporarily. There were squads of Chinamen in lino, decorated with highly
colored silka and wearing on their
backs wings, which woro fastened flatwise to their persons. Thero wero
"soldiers" who carried spears, three*
tined pitchforks, knives on tho ends of
poles, which contrivance might represent battle-axes, and a few carried guns
with bayonets attached. Several small
Chinese boys carried banners. Several
boys rode on horses, nnd were almost
buried in finery. Express wagons were
rigged up with canopies to shelter Chineso women, who wero painted'"fast
colors." Thoro woro also representations of pagodas, which wero carried
along by perspiring Chinamen. Tall
Chinamen struggled to hold up big
flags, on which the figure of tho drairou
was revealed, and other Chinamen,
with pitchforks, helped to hold up the
poles.
The procession did not march, but
struggled wearily up hill and duwn
hill, through Chinatown, accompanied
by the noise emitted from several Chineso bands. One man from the ancient country waved a gilded baton in
such a manner as to auggost, perhaps,
tho modern drum major. There wero
gongs which emitted n sound Bitch na
might 'oo struck from boiler-iron with
a hammer, gongs of lighter and less
harmful caliber, drums enrried by four
men and beaten hy one and wind instruments which played independently
of each other. For a long time Chinatown was in commotion. Tho wily
Mongol enrried at tho head of the line
an American Hag beside the dragon
flag. To-morrow morning How Wong
will bo givon nnother airing.
Tho awning over the Joss Iioubo at
1274 Jackson street between Dupont
nnd Stocton streets fell with a crash
just after tho procession had passed.
On it besides tho usual array of (lower
pots and old furniture woro several
Chineso who had gathered to aco tho
show. They wero precipitated to the
sidewalk and threo or four wero badly
bruised. Ono had his left leg broken
below the ankle in two places. Passing under the awning al the time weru
Mrs, J, Patrick of Oakland, and her
son, a lad of fifteen, besides somo Chinese pedestrians. She waa knocked
down hy the falling timbers, cut in
tho head and bruised. Her injuries
nre not serious.—S. F. Bulletin,

London, Sept. 18.—Advices from
Massowah give a deplorable account
of tho condition of tho Italian military expedition lately established
there. The heat in fearful, tho night
tompuraturo frequently rising to 122
degrees. In (he day timo any approach
lo comfort is impossible and existence
is almost intolerable. Oflicers and
men go nbout naked and more than
half of thorn aro always in the hospital. Estoric and other diseases are
prevalent, sunstrokos nro of daily
occurrence, und thero is hardly a member of tho expedition who is not worn
out menially and physically. Insanity, too, is common, and no less than
live officers and many of the men lmvo
committed suicide.
