) The wriliet1 once asked a member
of Sheridan's staff what, in bit opinion, waa tbe main cause of the General's almost uniform success, and
the answer was: "He never slept."
During the' rush and excitement
of these terrible campaigns in tk* valleys of Virginia, when'the ablest of
the Confederate generals kept the
genius of our arm; ut White heat,
the daring dragoon- never had a
night's refreshing sleep, btit sustained overtaxed nature by a series of
what he called cat naps. At any
hour of the night that you might
approach hit headquarten you would
invaribly find a saddled hone standing at the door of his tent ready for
instant use. His vigilance left no
point unguarded, failed to detect no
weak spot in the enemy's lino, overlooked no precaution either to resist
attack or to insure a succetssful assault*, When in bivouac and the
enemy's whereabouts was doubtful,
he scarcely oloted hit eyes, visiting
repeatedly the outposts between
dark and dawn, and trusting to no
subordinate any duty which he oould
better perform himself. He seemed
to feel as if it might be his good
fortune to strike at any moment a
decisive blow of the war, and by
a military instinot, father than
through love of glory, he incessantly
sought the hoped-for opportunity to
de|iyer the coup dt grace.—Brooklyn

Bellevue Castle, on the outskirts
of Berlin, once the residence of the
genial Prince Ferdinand, has again
become the favorite resort of mem-
; bers of the rejnljMrJily.- ? $*»« ag*d
Dowager Empress takes her daily
walks there. In the beautiful park,
fronting on a quiet bend in the
Spree, a path has been made for her
especial use, ornamented at short
intervals by heavy railings on whioh
her majesty can rest, Though she
is really stronger than a few months
ago, it isa melancholy sight to watch
the old lady, who haa gone through
so many stormy scenes, walking
with great efiort from goal to goal.
There seems little life in the tottering gait, little vitality in the wrinkled, care-worn face. Yet I wondered why no enterprising photographer steals her likeness amid these romantic surroundings, though it
would arouse the wrath of the venerable Queen.. Her vanity is still
boundless, and no man hat takon her
portrait for over thirty years, a fact
which explains the surprise of foreigners who purchase groups of the
Imperial family and find the hoary
widow looking younger than the present Empress Victoria. She was
then in her prime.' But near the
Dowager Empress on these afternoon
walks is another picture whioh is in
bright contrast to her and often engages her Majesty's attention—the
frolics of her great-grandohildren.
A part of the park has been laid but
for their use, and here, true to the
Hohonzollern blood, they play "tol-
diers in peace." The eldett, Prince
Frederick William, the ruler of Germany in the dayt of some future Bis-
marok, now six yean old, it commander-in-chief, and fully impressed
with the importance of his position.
A few days ago he uked hit mother to have a fort built for hit amusement, but was compelled to content
himself with a guard-house instead.
Here he orders one of his brothers
to stand watch, salute him as ho
passes, with the little wooden gun,
in regular military fashion, and relieves him after duty by brother
number 2. At other times he drills
them, ami, drewwd in his miniature
uniform, deinunds unconditional
obedience on the part of the junior
princes. It is amusing to we the
perfection with which tne commands
aro executed and bear the imiinrou<
soprano ofthe commauiler-in-thief.
the high-sounding language when u
stomach is too fer forward or a foot
out of place at "right, dress!" The
youngest boy is just out oi the
oradle; still he toddles about in his
own peculiar way, and gives promise
of a future leader. The father appears among them often, and takes
command, degrading the eldest sou
to the ranks for the time being. But
thit he accepts with pride, desirous
to show his own proficiency. He
will be well-drilled at the age of ten
when all royal princes receive the
rank of first lieutenant. Then his
command will be genuine,
The little fellows were tho joy of
their great-grandfather and went
almost daily to bid him good morn
ing. Then at hit request they all
stood up in a row and heard the
questiou: "But why have you not
brought the little brother with you I

"True, I forgot that But you

room where the old monarch would
never allow tbem to remain to make

the iiepublican convention.
Chicaoo, Jnne 20,— Chicago is lit'
an atmosphere of ninety degrees thu
morning, but nevertheless at an early
hour crowds are bustling everywhere.
Blaiuo is tbe magnetic word in all
directions snd supporters ol the different candidates tre fearful of his imminent nomination. Depew's candidacy, according to indications this
morning, will not play as large a (sure
as was expected two days ago. Both
the Ucrald nnd Tribune declare that
tUote has Iw^-ttit^-tnt^Htw.,
lork delegation and thst four at least
will hot vote for Depew. The nomination of Blaine, if it occurs, will be
due mainly to the disappointment of
those candidates who have failed alter
a great effort. The Alger men may go
tu Blaine, ssying: "We haye beeu
beaten by everybody but . him.'1
Allison might do the same.
A: portion of the Sherman
crowd are said to be for Blaine.
The fact that the Blaine turnouts are
larger than those of other candidates
is an impressive idea, and the consequences of opinion this morning is that
the nomination will go the way of the
Maine statesman. The convention
hall filled up rapidly this morning.
When it wis half-past twelve Chairman Thurston called the convention to
order and the Rev. Stephen A North-
rup, of Indiana, delivered prayer.
When it wu finished the chairman
announced.that all petitions and resolutions will be referred to the committee on resolutions; also that the credential committee would not be able to.
report until 8 o'clock this evening. At
this Hamill, of Colorado, much tothe
surprise of everyone, moved that tbe
convention adjourn till to-night The
motion, however, was not seconded.
The following is Ettee's speech !
" Gentlemen of the convention: -Following so illustrious a gentleman at'
yonr temporary chairman, I do not attempt to detain you by any lengthened
speech. I only want to aay to yun that
we live so far from the centre of ine

Wedaetrfar Evenlni. loss se.
According to,;.-Our correspondent
at Lulu Islnnd,.writing fa the Columbian yeaterday, the people of
Richmond municipality, whieh includes the North Arm and Lulu
Island settlements, are desirous of
having connection by road and bridge
with this city. Our correspondent
states that the Richmond corporation will have a road completed this
summer up Lulu Island very near
to Wettmintter oity, and they look
forward to having a bridge built to
complete the connection. Writing
on the subject a little over a week
ago, we urged that steps should be
taken immediately to establish good
trade connection! by land, in addition to those already existing by
water, with the flourishing and important agricultural centres of the
North Arm and Lulu Island—collectively known as Richmond
Whether this road oonneotion should
be made in accordance with the suggestion furnished by our correspondent—that is, with a bridge crossing
the North Arm of the river to Lulu
Island just below this city, the road
to proceed thence down the island,
connecting with the mainland again
by means of the projected North
Arm-Vancouver bridge, and thus
tapping the whole settlement, or
whether it should keep on the mainland side of the North Arm, communicating with Uie bridge already
projected, we are not prepared at
present to say. We presume, from
the remark! of our correspondent,
that the former,on account of directness, and tor the reason that it would
pass through and to a certain extent
open lip excellent farming land, and
likewise furnish a second connection
by bridge with the mainland, near
the best market for the settlement-
Westminster—would bB the more
popular and really useful of the two.
Whatever is done, steps should be
taken immediately in the matter,
and, as in the present progressing
North Arm-Vancouver road and
bridge, three parties, the city, the
rural municipality, and the provincial government, should co-operate
to bring about the desired result—
the public accommodation and the
general prosperity. Westminster
has, of course, or should have, a
special interest in binding all the
outlying and naturally tributary
and prosperous farming settlements
in the bonds of a common and mutually beneficial commercial interest,
and can well afford to take the initiative in the matter of providing
necessary traffic facilities; while satisfying herself nt the same time that
she is not shouldering any more of
the burden than in justico should
fall to her share. That a good road,
open the year round, and passable
for teams at all times, would be an
incalculable boon to both city ana
district cannot be disputed fora
moment. The wonder is that we
and our North Arm neighbors have
tolerated the absence of such a road
for so long, especially when, sometime! for weeks, in the winter season, .communication is entirely suspended, and it is only by a roundabout way that the mails can be
carried between the city and the
settlement It is to be hoped that
all parties concerned will take a proper intereat in thit matter, and having ascertained the best route to be
adopted, let tbe construction of the
road, and bridge, if necessary or desirable, be pushed with energy to
completion.
Better mail facilities are undeniably required by some of our farming settlements. A few years ago,
before the railway era, a weekly, or
at best a semi-weekly, mail was
all that was furnished the royal city,
bnt those "one-horse" dayt are past.
and we hare now daily connection
with the great outside world, by
meant of the O.P.R. With the
opening of the Southern railway,
whioh it merely a question of time,
and not a very long time either, an
other system of daily oonneotion
will be opened up, giving us daily
mail and passenger and traffio communication with the wealthy and
progressive states of the Paoific
coast While all the agricultural
communitim situated on the Fraser,
on both tides, above tbit oity, have
shared with us, incidentally, by reason of their proximity to the great
iron highway, in the advantages of
daily mails, tome of their sitter com-
muriitiet of equal, and, in tome in
ttancta, tuperior importance, have
heenforoedto content themselves
with the old incommodiout order of
thingt and are still laboring under
tho disadvantage ot having mail
oonneotion with their natural centre,
Weatminster, and through her, with
the outside world, but onoe a week.
Ladner's Landing and Lululsland,
it ii true, being on the route of the
Weatminster-Victoria steamer line,
gat a tri-weekly mail service; but
tho important and populous North
Arm distriot and adjacent to it,
Sea . Island, likewise a flourishing
agricultural settlement, bave never
hid mora than one mail • week,
•nd are atill laboring under thit
terioua drawback, whioh, by a for-
tunate combination of circumttancos,
hat been lifted from many of their
titter communities Something
should be done immediately to remedy thit Mate ot things, and it is with
this alliwi that .we.draw the atten-
CMmWrU+Om*
tion of tbe federal authorities to the
matter. A weekly mail serrico is
not at all commensurate with the
demands of the Nortli Arm and Sea
Wand-settlements. At thi**: very
least a:bi-w-i--<!kljj. .-service ah^ilcl bo
^lablishctl, and;ii tri-wcokly,:woul(l
be man in-Jjeejjpijj with whal i(!***e-
qiiired. Th"eSe" settlcnront's at tlio
farthest are within ten or twelvo
miles of this city, and additional mail
facilities would not involve any
serious additional expenditure. The
present service is porformed by
steamer, which*!, reasonably "satisfactory, exceptjSomotimes (pr a fow
weeks in the winter season; but, in
this connection it may be stated that
these few weeks inconvenience with
respect to the mails, together with
the lack of good ordinary traffic facilities experienced all the year
round, furnish moro than sufficient
argument for a good road connecting
this city with the districts above
mentioned, either by a bridge and a
road down Lulu Island, as suggested
by a correspondent yesterday, or.bji
a road to the North Arm on thff
mainland. In cither event the mail
could, of course, be carried by land
instead of by water, as at present,
which would prove more satisfactory
all the year round.' On the south
side of the Frasor, and lying for the
most part between this city and the
American boundary, is a large tract
of splendid farming land, comprising
the tbriviug und progressive settlements known as Surrey Centre,
Clover Valley, Hall's Prairie, Langley Prairie, Elgin and Mud Bay.
All these settlements, whose furthest limits are, roughly speaking,
within twenty miles of this city, and
which are directly tributary to us in
the mattor of trade, have only one
mail a week, They should have at
least two, and being all on one
general route, and the service supplied by road, with ferry oonneotion
at thia city, the additional cost of a
bi-weekly service to these important
districts need not stand very much
in the way of suoh a valuable
concession. When the Southern
railway is complete, running as it
will through the tract of country
comprising these sirHlettients, and
with the railway and goneral traffio
bridge crossing at this city, a still
further increase in the mail service
will be a comparatively easy matter.
In tho meantime, we would urge
upon the authorities to take prompt
steps in the direction we have rout-
lined.

There waa a Blight noiso nt tho door,
| which swung open, whilo a lnrg. block
. and white setter walked nlowly inlo the

nrpect.of things, then walked np to tho
I bed, put his foro paws on it, gravely ex-
[nmined tho woman sitting there, then
[reached forward nnd gently licked the

After thia caress, the dog lowered him-
[ self to tho floor and sat on bin haunches,
I turning his grave intelligent face toward
[ mo. His face and head wero so strikingly
I sagacious in contrast to tho puerility in
I tbe appearance of his mistress that I waa
rstartllngly aware of the entrance of a
| wise and noble individuality.
I held out my hand to him; he wagged
I birr tall but did not rise, glancing at the
I woman on tbe bed as lf it would be a dis-
I respect to her grief to greet ue too mark-

She did not move as she said:
"I reckon that there's Beersheby, ain't

The   dog   wagged  still  harder and
\ pushed his nose-up against the speaker.
[   I hastened to say, briskly, that it seemed
| to be a singular name sbe bad given her
[dog.
She sat upright and turned tome. Sho
I adjusted her quid with cheerful alacrity.
[ "It's scrlpter," she responded. She
| watked across the room and spat on the
I coals. Her faded eyes looked kindly at
kthe dog, who waa now standing by my
rslrleand assuring me that he responded
1 to my intenst ln him.
Tho woman turned. her back to the flro
I and continued in that position,her blurred
I profile outlined against the opposlto win-
Idow. Seeing her thus, I suddenly lre-
I came conscious that she had probably in
I ber early youth possessed a kind of pret-

Dr.-Jsnies C. White, professor of dermatology in Harvard University, declares,,
what Intelligent people have long known,
that good butter uncooked is perfectly-
harmless food so far as tho skin is concerned.
It is certain that much of tho prejudice
against candy eamo from the effaHrVof
parents of limited means to chili their
childrch's InUulgiince ln an -e.tpenslve
dainty. Nothing is more common than to
hear parents toll their ohildren*. that eating candy will ruin tlieir teeth, lint it is
most likely to ho nn utterance dictated by*
economy. At all events, no educated dentist will endorse the statement. .
Tho notion that buckwheat cakes and
oatmeal aro productive of skin diseases is
attacked and pretty thoroughly demolished by Prof. White, as well as that absurdity about tomatoes, which was start ed
by Dio Lewi3 a generation or so ago. Ho
said that tomatoes were productive of
cancer, and that they loosened anrl destroyed tho teeth.
Dr. Whito deolares tomatoes and oatmeal to bo harmless and valuablo foods,
and points at the simple fact thnt the only
danger iu eating buckwheat HeB In the
fact that It Is apt to be served up hot in
the form of improperly cooked cakes.
Theso may, and are very likely to upset
the digestion.
Ho declares, moreover, that a good
digestion nnd a healthy appetite will take
care of the skin, so far as tho effects of
food are concerned,andthat.lt matters
little what kind of food is used so long as
it is pure, of good'quality and properly
prepared. The healthy stomach will turn
it into good blood.

a world-wido reputation and will without doubt give the best Scottish concert ever heard in the city. The following is from the Toronto Qlobes
" Mr. Bairnsfather bas an excellent
voice, and sang with feeling and
power. Both as a singer and teller of
Scotch stories it is hardly going too far
to my that he iB fully equal to the
famous Kennedy. Indeed, in somo
respects he is even superior. Etta
Bairnsfather has a singularly pure and

Onr New Governor-General,
It is safe to say that no governor-
general hu made bo favorable an impression in this city in so short a space
of time as Lord Stanley. His simple
manner, his affablo bearing and his
evident dislike of all fuss and feathers
have gained for him tho good-will even
of those who ure opposed to the present system. Lady Stanley, too, by
her genial bearing, ber kindly and
sympathetic manner, hu captivated all
classes, and the general feeling hero is
one of good-will for the new governor-
general and his amiable wife. It is
believed that Lord Stanley will shortly take up his residence in Montreal
for Beveral months.   Toronto Mail.

ail impertinent and uncalled-for queation in yesterday's CoWMBiaK. We
replied that" Stranger " wanted information, and that there wete others
probably who were agitating themselves
with the same problem, and that, by
giving publicity to the anxious query,
a satisfactory answer would probably
be forthcoming. Such hu proved to
be the case, and "Stranger" and
other anxious ones will' find the answer in to-day's Columhian, and
will know that Mr. T. J. Trapp,
in jumping upon the lumber pile,
aud calling for clioern ns he did, deserves commendation instead of blame.
It is well that "Stranger's" question
found a public expression and a publio
answer, as now all rankling suspense
on the subject hu boon rehoved, and
other questions can be takon up and
discussed.
We have received a copy of "A
Manual of the Constitutional History
of Canada," just published by Dawson
Bros,', Montreal. The author is John
George Bourinot, L. L. D., F. R. 8„
clerk of the house of commons of Canada, already noted as the author of
"Parliamentary Practice" and similar
works. The volume, whioh is dedicated to the Marquis of Lansdowne, late
governor-general of Canada, is neatly
printed and bound, and constitutes a
very convenient and .useful compendium, for hsndy reference, of the constitutional history of Canada from tbe earliest period (going baok to about 1660)
to the year 1886, including the British
North America Act, 1867, and a digest
of judicial decisions on questions of
legislative jurisdiction. The work, we
should imagine, will just meet the requirements of those who desire to
study the general character of the constitutional system'of the Dominion,
without being burdened with details,
and the low price, $1.25, places it
within the reach of all.

of much annoyance to us of late handed us the annexed piece of poetry, yesterday, for publication, and whioh we
make room for with the distinct understanding that this is the lut of the

Toll me not In mournful numbers
That the town is full of gloom,
For the man's a crank that slumbers
In these days of bustling boom.
Life is real, lite is earnest
And the grave is not its goal;
Every dollar that thou tttrncst
Penis to make tho old town roll.

-' Wn can win immortal fame;
Let us leave these chumps behind us,
Wo will "git thar" just the same.

Buy a corner for your wife.

With a heirt for any fate,

The later*-ruing Cemmtadrat.
The Farmers' Advocate, published at
London, Ont., is publishing t series of
letters from a correspondent who hu
been making a trip of the North West
and British Columbia. His trip
through British Columbia was made
entirely by rail, passing straight
through to Vancouver and there taking
the steamer direct for Viotoria, having
Men sufficient of the country to venture statements that men who have
resided here for years would hesitate a
long time before making. This correspondent announces that, in his estimation (whioh he evidently considers
is all thst ib required), neither the soil
or climate of British Columbia are a-r
well adapted to agriculture as the eastern provinces; nlso, that there is com
Iiaratively very little good agricultural
aud in the provinces. The whole letter is full of mis-statements and inaccuracies aud shows u plain as possible
the complete lack of knowledge of the
country on the part of the writer.
Without stopping to visit the beautiful
farming districts of Okanogan and
Nicole, or that incomparable stretch of
agricultural land stretching from above
Chilliwhack to the Delta, on both
sides of the river, this enterprising
correspondent rushes through to Viotoria, where he aits down and writes
"What I know of British Columbia."
What he does not know about the
country would fill a very large volume
and what he does know might be written on one page of his note book.
Luckily this senseless correspondence
is copyrighted, so that it ia not very
liable to do much harm. In writing
up British Columbia the advocate
should try to obtain more accurate information or not attempt it at all.

We have received another communication on the above subject from Dr.
Kent; but u the matter haa heen
pretty fully ventilated from both sides,
and the public have had all the facts
and hypotheses in the caw laid before
them, we cannot see that any goodwill
be subserved by taking up our space
with the communication referred to.
Dr. Kent hu already had the privilege
of discussing this question several
times in these columns, and u nothing
new is brought forward with the exception of a rumor that Viotoria influence played a part in our high school
trouble, wc have, as slated above,
thought best not to publish the communication referred to. Any future
communication on this subject, unless
of real public interest, will not be published, as the discussion would, if allowed to continue, very likely degner-

Nearly a score of art contributors, Including aome iu England and France,

neighborhood of Churchill river. From
this latter point they will work northwesterly towards the great lakes of
the Mackenzie huin. This party,
which ia a geological .one, haa a naturalist attached to it. A third party,
which lut year ascended Stickeen

the Yukon, where they were last heard
from, have instructions to strike from
the latter point to the head waters of
the Peel River. The Peel river enters
the Maokeneie near its delta. Thence
they wilt atriks overland to one of the

Editor Colombian'. — Please tell
"Stranger" that Mr. Trapp had no intention of proposing cheers upon the arrival
of the ship Camana till asked to do bo.
The mayor did not tum up quickly
enough to tako the initiative, so Mr.
Trapp, aB vice-president of the board of
trade, proposed the cheers, and did it
well.
Mr. Trapp declned when first osked,
saying "the mayor, wu the one upon
whom the honor devolved." As it wu,
too much timo was lost before the cheers
were givon—some wore getting impatient
fearing the event would not, after all, he
hailed with proper demonstration.
1 would suggest that "stranger" be
careful lest he become "too officious."
As a rule strangers are expected to mind
their own business. D, S. Conns.

■Imager Answered.
Editor Columbian. —In your Issue of
last night I noticed a letter signed
"Stranger" commenting en Mr. Trapp'a
aotion In calling for three cheers for
Capt. Gordon and Mr. Hendry. Now,
sir, for a "stranger" 1 think our newly-
arrived friend is extremely impertinent
and should endeavor, if possible, to mind
his own business and allow Westminster
to conduct its own affairs. Long-tongued
and meddlesome persons, such u
"Stranger" proves himself to be, are not
wanted in the Royal City. Happening
to.be present at the arrival of the Camana I will, with your permission, explain -exactly what did occur. Im*
mediately after the anohor wu dropped,
(the right moment for the cheer) everyone was looking for the signal to give
three cheers, but tha signal did not
oome. A minute passed and it seemed
u if the grand reception was going to
prove a grand fizzle. At this time one
of the gentlemen who had gone down the
river to meet the Camana aud had returned to the city on that vessel called, I
think, to Alderman Elliott to knowlfa
cheer oould be given for the new arrival
Mr. Bole wu uked to give the signal
bnt ha declared himself unable to do eo,
having a bad cold. Mr. Chisholm, M.
P., wu also uked, If I remember right,
and he wu unable to de so for acme
reucn. The reception wu beginning to
grow cold and would have proved a oom-
C* '»fizzle but for the promptness of Mr.
pp, who, suing the tun things were
taking, seized the opportunity and gave
the signal, whioh wu heartily responded
to by the expectant crowd. The mayor
wu on the wharf, I understand, but I
did not seo bim for aome minute, afterwards. Mr Trapp Is an offloer ef tbe
board ol trade and la consequently a nubile man. A low, contemptible attack on
Mr. Trapp for simply doing the city a
good turn, and preventing tbe reception
of the Camana from being reduced to a
farce, Is a stroke of malice that all respectable and fair-minded citizens will «
