virnnt Events and Opinions
The Nova Scotian counties whieh
have adopted the Scott Aet contain
a population of 382,000. New
Brunswick haa 202,000 of its population under the Scott Act; ft E.
Island, 108,891 (the whole); Que-
rliec, 40,000; Ontario, 460,000; Man-
• .-tolm 20,000. Prohibitum is also
supposed to prevail over the North-
West Territories, with their population of 06,446. This gives a total
population under prohibition of
1,264,337, while campaigns are in
progress in cities and counties representing a population of 750,000 in
Ontario, 100,000 in Quebec, 40,000
in Manitoba, and the whole of British Oolumbia, Within a few months
probably one-half of the people of
the Dominion will have accepted
the rule of prohibition, and providing no reaction is experienced the
temperance party will soon be empowered to speak with the authoritative voice of the majority.—Toronto Okie. We are not aware of
any movement on foot for a prohibition campaign in this province.
The Victoria, British Oolumbia,
papers are boiling over with indignation because of the report of the
Dominion Commission on the Ohinese question, which recommends
that nothing be done towards restricting Ohinese immigration until
the completion of the Canadian
Pacific railway, and then not unless
moro cogent reasons for such restriction shall have been advanced.
At the last general election the advocates of Ohinese restriction were
all elected. Tbe people of British
Oolumbia not only have the sympathy of their American neighbors in
the fight they are making, hut ihe
. landing of Ohinese in that country
and many difficulties in the way of
preventing them from being smuggled across the borders, must always
excite our apprehensions. However,
the Columbians are so earnest in
their work and have undertaken it
with such unanimity, that it is to
be hoped that they may soon bring
the Dominion government to terms,
—San Francisco Post.
business of New Westminster, Burrard Inlet and the mainland generally can not be adequately supplied
by less than a tri-weekly mall service.   The New Westminster Columbian very earnestly calls attention to the great injustice that is
being done to New Westminster hy
the meagre mail service that is now
furnished them by the pott office
department.   We hold'that New
Westminster is as fully entitled to
a thrice a week mail jas the East
Coast, and  there cannot be two
opinions .about   the Moessity  of
the latter.   It is a matter of surprise to us to learn tait the contract with the O. P. N. Oo. is only
for twice  a week And: that the
tri-weekly service wa. 'performed
only because their pasgHnr and
freight  traffic justHL *• i*e" running of three steamers each week.
Instead of this province retrograding in mail matters, this service
should be equally as progressive as
the general industries of the province.     For New Westminster to
return to a semi-weekly mail service is to intimate that this prov-
vince, and especially the mainland,
has   been   enjoying  a Rip Van
Winkle sleep for the last 20 years.
A glance at the numerous industries and the insreased prosperity
of the province will show that British Columbia has been quite as wide
awake as  Rip's   wife,  Gretchen.
We are confident that if the people
of New Westminster will show the
post office department the great injustice that is being done to the
mainland by this inadequate mail
service, that it  will  be speedily
remedied.    It was only by persistent  agitation, ably  endorsed by
Mr. D. W. Gordon, member for
Vancouver distriot, that the thrice
a week service was obtained for the
East Coast from Nanaimo to Victoria.   It is to the interest of those
sections that have adequate mail
service to see that an important
section is not put off with an inadequate service, for if such limited
facilities are quietly acquiesced in
by one community, it will be taken
as on precedent to reduce the mail
service generally  throughout  the
province.    In no other province of
the Dominion is the mail service
so limited as in British Columbia
and instead of decrease we are justly
entitled to increase, and especially
is tliat the case in reference to the
mail  route between Victoria and
New Westminster.    The people of
the mainland have the sympathy af
the entire East Coast, .outside of
Victoria, and can rest assured that
any assistance they oan render our
mainland friends will be cheerfully
given.—Nanaimo Fnt Press.

There is but one point of view in
whioh the growth of the Dominion
of Canada is viewed in this country
with uneasy feelings. So long as
the British control five and one-half
degress of the western shore of this
continent, dovetailed between Alas,
ka and Washington Territory, there
will always be a sore spot, which
politicians may at any time succeed
in inflaming. That piece of territory
ought to belong to this country, and
certainly will be sooner or later. It
would be a gnat thing for the
future peace of the world if it could
be acquired by purchase or pacific
negotiation. In case of war we
ahould undoubtedly endeavor to
seise it and it would be impossible
for Great Britain to defend it, at
sueh a distance from any possible
depot or base of supplies. It is of
no value to the Dominion of Canada.
In case of strained relations between
this country and Great Britain it
would cost more to put it in a position, of. defense and garrison it for
two years than the whole territory
is worth. If this little cloud were
removed from the horizon the United
States could contemplate the growing prosperity and power of the
Dominion with the same hearty
good will that is now felt for the
growth of Australia.—.fan Francisco
ChronieU. When the IT. S. government purchased Alaska from the
Russians, the strip Intervening between it and Washington Territory
belonged tp Britain, and the Chron-
ielt's proposal is as impertinent ail it
is ridiculous.

During the past summer the null
service of British Oolumbia was
materially increased and
somewhat in conformity to the requirement* of the prinoipal sections
of the province, and as a consequence the people generally felt contented, Viotoria has a daily mail
from the Sound and one from San
Francisco every eight daya The
East Coast from Nanaimo to Victoria has a tri-weekly mail service,
with a weekly mail to Comox and
New Westminster, During the
aummer the mail service from Victoria to New Westminster was three
times a week and for a short period
daily, but it is now reduced to a
semi-weekly service, the same aa it
was twenty years ago. The importance of the East Coast route requires the tri-weekly service, and

"Before! Com., pard, I'll tell you
something. Do you see thoae beam,

''Yes."
Well, when I was a lad I played
tag many a tinn up there on the same
beams. Those holes cut in the clap-
hoard, up there under the eaves—I out

little red house there at th. further
end of the lot?"
"Yes, Joe."

Wedneaday  Morning,   Her. 8, 1881.
When Sir JoHri Macdonald returns to Canada and gets all hia
titles on a string it will read like
this: Bight Honorable Sir John
Alexander Macdonald, D. 0. L.
Q. 0., M. P., K. a M. G., 0. B„
K. 0. B., G. 0. B. Besides, he is
to wear a silk hat witli a plume,
and red breeches. It is somewhat
remarkable that while the premier
of Canada sports such a formidable
array of titles, the premier of Great
Britain is still plain Mr, Gladstone!
Tho GtumUan continually per
sists in assorting Uut the failure to
appoint a successor to the Hon. Mr,
Drake in the government shows
conscious weakness, and that the
hon. gentleman's reason for resigning was a disagreement with
the other members. Would it
not be well for the Guardian to
ascertain first whether Mr. Drake
has really resigned 1 As a matter
of fact we believe he has not, but
is still a member of the government
and president of the council!
Statistics from the Ontario Bureau of Industries show that the
crops tliis year in Ontario have been
unusually heavy, and a comparison
with the crops of last year is very
striking. Tlie wheat crop of this
year is given at 35,332,949 bushels,
against 21,383,020 for last year,
showing an increase of nearly 14,-
000,000 bushels. In 1883 wheat
averaged 13 bushels to the acre;
this yoar it averages a fraction over
22 bushels. The yield of potatoes
last year was 16,400,782 bus.j this
year it is 27,546,201. It is unfortunate for the farmers tliat this immense crop must be sold at a very
low price, 70 to 75 ots.
A "Van," Suro.
According to the Victoria Times
. tlie naming of the C. P. R. terminus "Vancouver" is tiie work of
Mr. Van Horne himself. If tliis
be true we suppose the name will
stick. Persons who came up yesterday say that there is nothing
talked about in Victoria but Coal
Horbor. The people there are
more easily excited than those bf
the royal oity.  Tlio Jateet tmnounco-
ment of the Times is as follows:
"The Times is in a position to announce that the terminus of ttie
Canadian Pacific Railway has not
only been finally located at Coal
Harbor and False Creek, on Burrard Inlet, but that the agent of
tlie company will arrive here during
the present or in the early pnrt of
the incoming week, to itmingo all
matters relative to the terminal
buildings, the laying out of the
company's lands, and arrange all
such other matters as they are or
may hereafter be interested in.
He will be followed by Mr. L. A.
Hamilton in a few days. Tlie latter gentleman is deputy land commissioner and a practical surveyor.
Ko change will be made in tlie
name selected by Mr. Van Horne
for the future commercial city. He
attaches great importance to the
name of Vancouver, in consequence
of the enviable fame this island has
acquired throughout the world for
its unrivalled climate and many
other advantages. Mr, Van Horne,
iu making tlie selection, kept the
discoverer of tho island in view,
as well as . the fact tliat once the
name of Vancouver was mentioned
its location would bo known everywhere. He adheres to the belief
that in time the new city will be
one of great importance, second
only to San Francisco on this coust,"
Why This HaxeT
One of the most disgraceful lUwls
we have ever seen appeared in the
last issue of the Guardian. This
newspaper, while pretending to concern itself with the interests of the
country, makes a most savage and
venomous attack upon the govern*
ment, and especially upon the provincial secretary, because the services of the gaol surgeon have been
dispensed with. It is well known
that for many years the condition
of the lunatic asylum has been extremely unsatisfactory. This state
of things arose principally from two
causes, the lack of room and the
lack of a resident medical adviser.
Over and over again the medical
attendants have been calling the
government's attention to theso
things, and recommending thut tho
buildings be enlarged, the grounds
enclosed so as to afford outdoor employment and recreation to the
patient*, aud a resident physician
appointed.    Until this year these
repeated recommendations were
fruitless. The financial condition
of the province was such that public works involving large expenditures could not be undertaken.
The dry-dock hnd swallowed up so
much of the revenue tliat the government was forced to refrain from
important enterprises and content
itself with letting the roads and
bridges and other works fall into
decay and disuse. After the passage of the settlement bill, however,
the province found its financial condition greatly improred. The outlay upon the dry-dock was returned,
and the ordinary revenue became
at once available for useful public
improvements. Ib wad-then that
the government determined, among
other tilings, to place the provincial
asylum upon a better footing. An
appropriation of $25,000 was made
for additions to the buildings, improvements to tho grounds, and the
erection of a houso for the resident
physician. This necessarily implied
the appointment of a resident physician, iu accordance'with the recommendations so -frequently made.
These matters were all sanctioned
by the legislature, and left to be
carried out by the executive. Dr.
Bentley received the medical appointment, and we are sura no one
will say that the government was
guilty of extravagance if it fixed
his salary at $2,200, as stated by
the Guardian. Now, before this
appointment was made at all it was
perfectly understood tlmt tlie medical officer of the asylum would take
charge of all the provincial government institutions in the city where
medical services were necessary.
As the medical officer of the asylum wns required to abstain from
all private practice, it wiis folt that
he could serve tlie gaol nnd the
hospital at tho samo time and save
§900 a year to the province without neglecting the interests of any
of these institutions. This is what
has been done. Dr. Bentley was
already medical officer at the hospital, and the only change which
followed the new order was that he
succeeded Dr. Trew as gaol surgeon
—and tliis is the excuse given by
tlie Guardian for branding the
members of government as "accomplished thieves," and calling the
provincial secretary an "asBass.nl''
While regretting that Dr. Trew's
income should be interfered with to
any extent by the new arrangement,
we think tho public will agree witli
us that there can bo uo ground for
a charge against the government.
Dr, Trew has been sufficiently paid
for the services he lias rendered us
gaol surgeon. If he did not think
so, he would have resigned the position, and the fact that he did not
resign may be accepted as proof
that the salary was sufficient. Besides, it is well known that the
duties of tho medical officers at the
gaol, the asylum, the hospital, and
the penitentiary were not by auy
means severe—hence these positions
have always been eagerly sought
for. Dr. Trew, therefore, had no
special claim upon tho government
or the country when his duties were
merged into those of the asylum
physician aud his services in that
capacity ceased. Having determined upon a resident physician for
the asylum (the propriety of which
has never been called in question),
the government was able to save
the province $900 a year by placing alt its institutions under one
doctor, and it would not have been
guarding the interests of the provinco if it neglected to avail itself
of the opportunity to practice
economy. The strictures of the
Guardian, are not only impertinent
and ill-natured, but they are absolutely groundless.

In hia report the superintendent uys:

Not Exactly.—Recently we had
occasion to find fault with Oapt Irving
because without notice he put an end
to an arrangement by whioh The Cot*
umrianh for Chilliwhack and Sumas
were carried on the O.P.N.Oo's, steamers. The Guardian refers to this mat*
ter under the sub-head of "a whine,"
«nd takes thn part of the company.
Our cotemporary distorts the facts for
this purpose. In asking the C.PN.Co.
to carry these packages of papers we
•did not regard it exactly in tht- light
of a favor, All the year round the
O.P.N.Oo's, steamers havo been gratuitously suppliod with Tub Columbian, fur wliich they have never been
staked to pay a farthing. It seemed to
us only fair that, for the few months
until navigation closes on the river,
they would carry two packages of paper
free. This tho agent here agroed to
do willingly enough. We did not find
fault with Capt. Irving for terminating
the arrangement, as our ootem. states,
but for doing so without notice, The
insult of his sudden fit of angor, without any provocation on our part, was
•hat one issue of Thb Columbian for
Chilliwhack and Sumas was delayed
four days.

Harris, of Victoria, died at 12 o'cloek

the first mayor of Victorin, and was

Temfeiunob at Lanolbv. — The
Rev. C. 0. Bnteman, late of the Grand
Lodge, California, paid our settlement
a visit last week and delivered three
lectures to large audiences with great
acceptance. Reports of his popularity
in the various places where he has
been in the province led us to expect
something more than an ordinary temperance lecturer, and our expectations
were not disappointed. His lectuies
were able and substantial, and highly
interesting. He speaks with great
earnestness and power, but does not
unduly work upon the feelings of his
hearers. He appeals to their reason,
as well as to sll that is bost aud purest
and noblest in the human breast. As
a result of his efibrts in behalf of temperance in this quarter, a lodge has
been organized, consisting of 24 mem*
bers, which promises to be a power for
good in the community. He left with

THE SCOTTISH AHHIKRSMY MONDAY NIGHT.
A large company assembled at the
Colonial Hotel on Monday night to do
honor to the memory of the "Land o'
Cakes." The spacious dining-room of
the hotel was completely filled with
guests, quite a number of whom were
ladies. Considerable delay took placo
at the commencement, and tho dinner,
whioh should have been served at 8,
was not laid out until 10. The tables
were well provided, however, with
compensations for delay, and it was
11:30 before the eloth waa removed.
Tho feast was graced by that royal
dish, a real Scotch haggis, of which
the company partook with becoming
reverence. The dining-room was then
cleared for dancing, while in an adjoiu-
ing room a select company of gentlemen asssmbled to dispose of the toasts.
The chair was occupied by Chiof Geo.
Black, and the vice chairs by Chief-
tans Bonson nnd Rnnftiu. After disposing of the usual loyal und patriotio
toasts, Mr. Rankin proposed
. "The Army and Navy." Thia was
responded to nt somo length by Capt.
Peele, who said ho belonged to the
army aud waa proud of it. If we
were to believe the newspapers the
British army and navy had all gone to
the dogs, "But don't you beliovo it,
gentlemen," said Capt, Peele; "wo
havo heard ■ thnt story mnny t hues before." Thoro had scarcely ever been
a great war in which the British arms
wore not greatly, inferior in numbers
to their enemies, and nll sorts of disaster had been predicted. But Britain seldom failed to come out right,
and she would comu. out all rigljj again.
He referred to history for the purpose
af showing how wonderfully successful
British arms had been against overwhelming odda and difficulties most
appalling. From the Peninsular wars
to Waterloo, the Crimea, the mareh to
Magdala, the Ooomauie campaign, tho
Boor and Zulu wars. ! Now the British forces were going up the Nile, and
up tho Nilo thoy would go—"and
don't you forget it." 1 This great British empire is going to rule the world.
The other powers might squirm, and
storm, and objeot, and threaten; but
John Bull quietly puts his hands into
his pockets and tuks what they propose to do about it. There was goud
stuff iu the Canadian militia. In the
Fenian raids its great mistake was that
it acted with too muoh hsste. The
Canadians should have waited until
the Fenians got fairly into the country,
then cut off theirTotreat and lett not
one to recross the boundary. He believed before long the whole civilised
world would be a military camp, and
Britain would defy all the rest. Von
Moltke had declared that the greatest
military feat of the century was the
British march from Cabul to Cauda-
har, and the man who made it waa a
Scotchman,
The "Mayor and Councillors" was
proposed by Mr. Alex, Ewen.
Mr, Jns. A. Laidlaw prwposcd *JThe
Day an' a' wha Honor it."
Mr.  D. MoGrogor proposed "The
Lnnd wo Left," and remarked that he
didn't know a bettor country to be
born in.
Mr. Jas. Crawford (Victoria) said
there were a great many associations
clinging about.Old Scotland, some of
whioh were pleasant, and some painful. We could never forget tho old
land. He was glad to see so many
present who woro born in the old
country. It was a great privilege to
be born in Scotland. Nojjerson who
has not enjoyed that privilege can
tell how much ho had missed. No
person whose experience did not ex*
tend back to the old land could properly appreciate the associations of
childhood. Thero were surroundings
there which in their simple beauty
would oling to memory forever, and
they could be found nowhere else.
There we could' gaze upon the head-
Btones of the martyrs who had bled
iu defence of our liberties and our
religious institutions. There we could
see the very spots whoro the patriots
fell, He was delighted to be present
and do honor to the old land.
* Mr. Wm. Ross proposed "The Land
of our Adoption. It was responded
to by Dr. Trew. He said he was glad
to see present not only Scotchmen,
but men from other countries. It
might be said truthfully that this, the
land of our adoption, was a fair country, a country where, a home could
be mado and surrounded with comforts
and luxuries more easily than in any
other land. This land would be the
central point of the confederated British empire. It was the latest link in
the chain of umpire which now embraces more territory than any other
—and wherever you find that empire
you will find Scotchmen holding places
of importance. We had hore representatives from every province in the
Dominion, and aome day we might
have representatives from Jamaica!
Mr. Bonson proposed "Our Mercantile, Manufacturing and Agriclturnl
Interests." This was briefly respond*
ed to by Mr. Adam Innes, who claimed
to be one of the oldest members of the
society iu this province.
Mr. Buie proposed "The Press,"
which was responded to by representatives tif the city popers.
Capt. Veeie proposed "The Scottish
Poets." He said he couldn't read
Burns, but he believed no man ever
had a more profound conception of
human nature, Thia toast was responded tu by Mr. D. Wilson in a really
good speech in which he referred at
considerable length to the poets of
Scotland,
Mr. Henry Hughes proposed "The
Ladies." He regretted that he had no
sister of his own to counsel and encourage him, but he liad often taken
sweet counsel from other follows' sisters. This was responded to by Mr.
D. McGregor, after whioh all joined
hands and sang Auld Lang Syne.
In tho ball-room dancing wns kept
up without intermission till 2 o'clock
to the music of tho Happy Hoi ten-
tots. During dinner the Royal City
Band played on the balcony of the
hotel. The gathering waB greatly un-
joyed by those present, and may be
proUuuuced a cuccesu. *

independence or Parliament.
, Editor Columbian.—With your permission 1 wish te call public attention to
the course punned by our.member for
this oity since hia election to the provincial parliament. It is stated, and cab be
proved, that he has given contractors
and officials to understand that all government supplies must be purchased
through him, and intimates that if they
purchase from any person else they may
get themselves into trouble. Now, sir,
I ask if this is what our member sought
the suffrages of the people of this oity
for. If it is, the electors should know
it, and ask him to resign. It is well
known that many of those who voted for
the present member did so because he
was represented as the government can*
didate, and not on account of personal
popularity. Many of these electors are
merchants, engaged in the same branches
of trade that he follows. Is it right or
proper that the person whom they helped
to place In a position of publio trust and
responsibility Bhould deliberately make
use of that position to take unfair advantage of these men in matters of trade!
All the merchants ask is a fair field, and
this they cannot have so long as tho city
member is allowed to use his official post*
tion for his personal gain. This Is not
the. first time a similar complaint has
been brought against the same person.
Many of your readers will remember the
time when tliis city was unrepresented
at Ottawa because its present local member dare not retain his seat on account of
government contracts, If it be true that
he is now acting with the knowledge and
consent of the local government, then
the government is not worthy of public
confidence.—Yours, ke,        Elector.
Now West., Deo. 2nd. 1884.
[We know nothing respecting the allegations of our correspondent. We maintain that no person in a public position
has a right to use that position for his
personal gain. As far as the government
is concerned, we have the best authority
for saying that it is entirely free from
blame in the matter.—En,]
Aquatic News.
The Melbourne Australasian tfives
the following as the latest news in
aquatic circles: "On Monday last,
September 10th, Beaoh and Hanlan,
with their supporters, together with
the buckets of Clifford, met at the Oxford hotel, Sydney, to make matches,
and, according to the Evening News,
'contrary to expectation,' the meeting
resulted most satisfactorily to nll con*
corned, Mr, Hunt, on behalf of the
committee that had been selected to
wait on Clifford, reported that he
firmly declined to withdraw from his
match with Beach on February 28th,
but in the oyent of his proving victorious ho was willing to row Hanlan fur
any sum up to 81000, on auy dnte he
might choose within a month after.
Ultimately the throe matches were
made ai follows: 1. Hanlan to row
Clifford for £500 on February 7th, ns
previously agreed. 2. Beach to row
Clifford on February 28th for £200 a
side and championship uf the world, as
Eroviously agreed. 3, In the event of
loach defeating Clifford, he (Beach) is
to row Hanlan for £600 a sido and

Pearson k Co's,
Order or the Bath.
On Saturday wo mentioned thnt Sir
John Macdonald, premier of Canada,
had received an intimation that he
would bo decorated with the Grand
Cross of. the Order of tho Bath. The
following particulars respecting this
decoration, never before conferred upon a Canadian, will be interesting:
The Knights of tho Bath are a military Order, supposed to bave originated at the time of the First Crusade,
but first distinctly mentioned in the
reign of Henry IV, Froisaart says
that at the coronation of that king in
the Tower of London in 1309, forty*
aix esquires were made knightB, and
were called Knights of the Bath, because they had watched and bathed
during the night preceding, and that
they wure on the occasion long coats
trimmed with whito fur, and hnd white
laces hung about their shoulders.
From that time it was usual for kings
to create Knights of the Bath at the
coronation of themselves or their
queens, the birth or marriage of princes nud princei ses, on the eve of starting upon foreign military expeditions,
nnd after gaining a battle or taking a
town. At the coronation of Charles
II. sixty-eight Knights of tlie Bath
wure made; hut the Order was then
neglected and discontinued, till in 1725
George I, revived it by letters patent.
He gave a book of statutes for its government, by which it waa decreed that
the Order should consist uf the Sovereign, a Grand Master, and thirty-six
Companions, Its badge, of pure gold,
was to be a sceptre of three united imperial crowns, from which grew the
ROSE, THISTLE, AND SHAMBOOK,
and around whioh was inscribed the
ancient motto, "Tria Juncta in Vno."
It was to be hung by a red ribbon
from the collar obliquely over the
right shoulder. The collar should
contain thirty ounces Troy weight of
gold, and be a complicated arrange*
moot of nine crowns nnd eight roses,
thistles, nnd shamrocks, the latter be*
ing enamelled tn their proper colon
and attached to the crowns by gold
knots enamelled white. A silver alio
made to resemble the badge, and with
a glory of rays proceeding from its centre should adorn the left shoulder of
the Knight, being embroidered upon
the left side of his mantle. The apparel of a Knight of the Bath was ordered
to be a red surcoat, lined and edged
with white, and encircled by a white
girdle, a crimson mantle lined with
white and fastened about tlm neck
with a cordon of white silk, a white
silk hat surmounted by plumes of
white feathers, white boots, red stock*
iugs and breeches, and a Bword in a
white leather scabbard. In 1815 the
number of the Knights of the Bath
was enlarged. Three denominations
and ranks wero then ordained in the
Order, the first consisting of
knight's grand CROSSES,
to be conferred only upon officers who
had reached the rank of Major-General
in the army or Rear-Admiral iu the
navy, excepting that twelve of the
number might be appointed for emi-
nent civil services. Tbe Grand Crosses
were distinguished by wearing over
their badge and star a wreath of laurel
winding about an escrol, on whioh was
inscribed Ich tlien. Tho second class,
consisting of Knights Commanders,
take precedence of all knights bachelors in the Kingdom, and no one is
eligible to this dignity till ho hu
reached ihe rank of Major-General In
the army or Rear-Admiral iti the navy,
and no one is eligible to a Grand Cross
till ho has first been a Commander.
Tho third class, consisting of Knights
Companions, takes precedence of all
esquires in the Kingdom, and no officer is admiasnble to this dignity who
has not received a medal in reward.for
valor, or been especially mentioned as
of signal merit in the despatches of his
superior officer.

The Great World's Fair.
Nbw Orleans, Nov. IS.—1The rich
costumes of the women on these broad
and brilliant boulevards are in keeping
with the hectic flush of the leaves on the
forest trees that adorn many of the highways, in curious contrast with the still
green magnolia and orange tree—that
thing of beauty, which to many a poor
man's garden lends a look of temporary
opulence with its multitude of
GOLDEN   GLOBES,
Color may he said to culminate in this
city and the perennial bloom of its gardens finds a parallel in the social temper
of its people. Narcissus, who fell in
love with his own face pictured in the
placid stream, might be taken as a prototype of this people collectively as well
as individually and, I fauoy, that Cable,
In his Creole caricature, called Narcisse,
hail this fancy forming in his mfnd and
took a dshcato malice in suggesting it;
though it seems to me that he makes
Naroisio of the novel very tiresome,
which tlio Narcisse of real life here never
can bo. The richness of coloring predominant here brings me back to the
Exposition ns tlio subject for this letter.
Much haa been published about the extraordinarily large and splendid buildings
prepared for exhibitors, but a recent
visit to the Exposition grounds convinces
nio that they, the ground', Mil cull
forth even moro wonder and admiration
thau the 1'nlnces of Southern Progress
thst rest upon them.
The embellishment of thoso naturally
attractive grounds, which are a lapse of
250 acres just on the crescent curve of
the great, tawny rivor which brings sn
much tribute to the oity nt Now Orleans,
Is in keeping with tho character of the
climate and the tastes of a delicately
luxurious peoplo. Miniature lakes and
fountains, winding walks amid clumps
of tropic trees, groups of banana, orange,
lemon, mnguoy, mesqulte and many
others will form m douling mosaic of
color in motion whenever a breeze comes
LAUGHING WITH PBBFUUK,
Up from the Oulf of Mexico, And
when the breeze may come the lordly
livo oaks, which extend over muoh of
the grounds, the grateful protection of
their magnificent umbrage,, will wave
thoir long streamers of Spanish gray
moss in playful answer to the flags of
the main building or the countless smoke
wreaths of tho steamers that crowd up
tho river from Europe, the Indies,
Mexico and tha South American republics. The illumination of the grounds at
night ia on as grand a scale as the other
preparations for this international display. In the Lake Rubio, named after
thn wife of General Porfirio Diss, Presi*
dcnt-eleot of Mexico, an ornamental
stand-pipe rises to ths height of 100 feet.
At threo intervals of SIT feet each this
pipe throws out a circle of jets each circle
lessening towards the top like tbe spray
of a fountain. On the top of the spire
extending fifteen feet above this column,
AN  ELECTRIC LAMr
Of 100,000 candle power flashes its rays
across the waters uf the lake and over
the cadenced jets of the fountain. In
front of five of the principal entrances a
36,000 candle power Leavitt-Mueller
electric light is placed, and in five different sections of the grounds there are
towers 125 feet high, eaoh lighted by ten
standard arc lights of the Jenny system
and fifty additional Jenay arc lamps are
ranged around the grounds and steamboat landings on the river frent. The
systems represented in the electric
lighting are the Edison, Leavitt-Mueller,
Brush, Jenny; Thomson and Houston,
whioh aggregate 4000 incandescent and
1100 standard arc lamps, requiring 1600
horse power of engines for the electric
lighting alone, or 200 horso power more
for this service than the big Corliss en
gine that furnished the entire power for
the Centennial buildings, and which is
uowat Pullman, 1400horse power. What
visions of loveliness does the mere
thought of such a complete electric illu*
minatiou at once evoke! If tbe general
spectacle is charming and Imposing by
day—and who con deny this?—how much
more enchanting and inspiring will it be
WHEN BATHED AT SKIIil*
In such a flood of soft splendor and mild
lunar luster as these wonderful lamps
diffuse! What sublime and beautiful
spectacular effects will reveal themselves
when the palpitant rays play with the
jewel work of the fountains transmuting
their falling pearls into opals and seem-
•f the ..
tions of their shadows that it would looL
as if shadow even were illumined into
ing to multiply, as hy magic, tbe figures

shadoi
substance. To enumerate all the special
features of attraction which this "World's
Exposition" offers would be like counting the leaves of a banyan tree, and we,
leave it to the future historian of the
finished event. The animating and directing minds at the head of this enterprise seem to have forgotten nothing.
The immensity of the live stock Interest,
the advance of electrical invention, the
education of the Indian by government
schools, the progress of woman's work,
and the elevation of the colored race—all
these have recoived equal and just attention from the management. The
last point, inter-penetrating as it does
tho material progress and development
of the South, has gained especial heed.
Tho management deemed that the identification of the colored race with the material prosperity of the South rendered
a demonstration of their educational advance since emancipation eminently fit
and instructive, decided to give every
possible stimulus to suoh an exhibition,
and voted an ample appropriation to aid
those engaged in this branch. To their
credit belt said, the colored people have
entered into this work with an enthusiasm that promises most interesting results. From outside the Exposition
proper many attractions naturally gravitate to such a centre.
AN INTERNATIONAL DRILL
will be held, hi which, besides volunteer
soldiery, companies of the regular army,
Mexican regiments and Spanish battalions from Cuba propose to participate.
A United States fleet, promised by the
Secretary of the Navy, will lie along the
river, aud a sham naval and land battle
is contemplated. Many organisations
of national, reputation and extent will
hold their annual convocation at New
Orleans during this period. The carnival pageants, occurring fn the latter part
of the winter (whiohla a very summery
affair in New Orleans anyway, with on
average temperature of 65 degrees Fahrenheit) will be tiie season of unparalleled gorgeonsnoss and magnify the fascination of this already world-famous
festival. Grand concerts, given regularly in the Music Hall, with the largest
organ evtr built for an exposition, and
the fine French and Italian grand opera
.houses of the city itself should hold to
lovers of music on irresistible invitation.
Besides the opportunities for excursions
by water, fresh and salt, in evory direction are unequalled—up the Father of
Waters aud along the richly verdurcd
bayous, or into the Gulf of Florida Keys
and coast places of Texas, Mexico, Central America, Cariboos and Weat Indies.
Palace steamers, at enormously low rates,
every few days will take parties of pleasure. The rates of transportation, too,
by land are less than ever granted before by railroad companies. In short,
nothing is lacking to nuke the World's
Exposition
THE CROWNING EVENT
of this great and splendid century. At
this writing part of the Shun exhibit
hu oome to port, China and Persia are
already on the way. From Mexico to
Montevideo, from Portland, Or,, to Portland, M„ tlio grand industrial wave goes
cresting on. Every day not only adds
to former points hut brings some new
development. Not only au extension of
trade relations with Mexico and South
American countries, but a beneficent influence on the world at large mny he

The End* Ship Railway.
The working mode! of Captain Jnme*
B, Kails' plim for the Atlantic und
Pacific ship railway, now iu vtoeesf uf
ennslructinn nemos the Isthmus > f
-Tehuuntopuc, has beun hitumht from
London, nnd is nuw oh exhibition in
thii city, in (hu l-Hnemtmt of the Mu*
Iiiul Lifo lusuruucu building, Nassau
and Libei-iy streets, As a specimen of
tine mechanical work this model is
quite remarkable, aud probably surpasses anything of the kind heretofore
constructed. It represents tho hydraulic lifting dock, by which the largest
ships nre quickly lifted out of water)
the railway cradle and truck, by whioh
thu great vessels are transported across
the country i and the hydraulic turn
table, by which track and ship are
rapidly revolved to meet any required
changes of direction in thu lino uf
travel of the railway.
The gigantic size of the cradle truck
that bean the ship overland forbids
the employment of curves uf a loss
radius than twenty miles; hut by
means of the hydraulic turn table,
which ia simply a great float, the largest vessel may be turned, switched off
to pass other vessels, and ruu upon
any desired diverging track, thus obviating the necessity of curves in thu
railway track itself. The Tehnnntcpcc
Ship Railway will be 134 miles in
length. It commences on the Atlantic
side at Hiuatitlan, and will terminate
nn the Pacific side probably at Salma
Crux. The working model now shown
is made to a scale of three-quarters uf
an Inch to a foot, and occupies a length
uf nbout thirty feet. The model ship
floats in water over a hydraulic pontoon, on which the railway cradle
truck is placed.   Tho working of thu
pumpa soon raises the ship, nnd she
rises out of water supported on self*
equalizing hydraulic jacks, arranged in
such manner that the lifted vessel, although above the water, may still be
said to float thereon. Screw blocks
attached to the truck cradle are now
run up and secured against (he ship's
keel and bottom at many points. 'Hie
hydraulic jacks are then released,
which leaves tho ship scoured within
the truck cradle, ready for the overland trip. Wherever a turn in the
road is to bo made, or vessels coming
the other way are to be passed, the
ship and truck arc run upon a, floating
pontoon, the height of which is quickly
adjusted, and tho ship is revolved to
the degree desired, to reach the diverging track, and the journey is then
continued.
The various parts of this wonderful
model aro mode to work with surprising ease and accuracy. Captain Gads'
plans for the practical realization of
this great ship railway, including the
working model, were examined and
endorsed by hundreds of the leading
engiueors in Europe, and there appears
to be no doubt in their minds of its
complete cuccobs. Thu estimated coat
of the railway is only forty-five millions of dollars, and it will have a
greater capacity for,the transfer of
ships than the proposed Panama Canal,
on which, it is said about one hundred
millions of dollars have already been
spent, although the work may be said
to have only juat really begun.-

Philadelphia, Nov. 15.—Forepaugh's
sacred white elephant, the "Light of
Asia," died yesterday at the winter quarters of the showman in this city. The
body has been shipped to Chicago, where
it will be articulated and placed in the
Academy of Natural Sciences. The
death of the alleged sacred beast is attributed to a cold which he contracted
through tbe carelessness of an attendant
leaving a window open all night. The
companion of the dead animal was deeply distressed, and the whole elephantine
herd bellowed in sympathy after the
beast fell over and expired. Rocks, the
largest elephant in the herd, was so excited over the death of his companion
that he made a desperate effort to break
loose, and pulled bis leg from the socket
by a lunge on his iron chain, lt has
since been dangerous to approach him,
and he stands on three tegs groaning
piteonsly;- Mr. Fonpaugh estimates hb
loss at 952,000.

Perhaps the moat artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by tho Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. Tlie large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase provc-a
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances ou
first-class instruments mado by leading
city and country musicians.
Bight well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The preseut moaperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of smatl
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About teu
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W. S. Russell, superintend
ont of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that' date the business 1ms
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission ol
a Detroit millionaire ss a partner, Pisnu-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and tiie establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out about 200 organs and 50
{danos per month. These are produced
►y 250 bauds, who receive iu wages
about $15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, anil
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia,
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of tha Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut- is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room, and Ts convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearauco, ana is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or mnslo room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand robbing with oil for hoars. The touch Is
quick snd easy, tbe tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made hy the Compauy are
known almost everywhere. They ore
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ whioh the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
cud of the week. It is arranged to lie
blown by Turk's water motor, which hns
beeu placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument Tho organs run through all grades, from tbe
thousand dollar instrument down to tlie
parlor favorite. The coses show wonderful variety. Many of these aro of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
Ttie case which secured for tho Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured, Coses for parlor organs are chaste in design and artistic in execution, Tho musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweet-
ness of tone anil elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; whilo visitors
can themselves judgo as to the beauty
and style of the cases,

UEIARKABLE STORY,
"Do you aay that always when you
leave a placet   Hester aaid,
"Very often," he acknowledged;
nml they both laughed again, which,
to her at least, was very welcome, as
she had been doubly on the verge of
tears—for anger and for regret. "But
seldom aa I do now," he added, "you
may believe me. The old people are
better and kinder than I had dreamed
of; it does one good to be near them;
and then I have helped myself on in
the world by this visit, but that you
will not care for.   And then—"
Here Roland broke off abruptly,
and gazed, as his fashion was, as feeling the impotence of words to convey
all that the heart would say.
It was very shortly after this that
tbe white horse which drew the old fly
.from Redborough—the borse which
was supposed to have been chosen for
this quality, that it could be seen a
long way off, to console the souls of
those who felt it could nevor arrive in
time**-was seen upon the road, and the
last moment had visibly come. Not
the less for the commotion and tumult
or other feelings through which her
heart had gone did Hester acknowledge
the emotions which belonged to this
leave-taking. The depth and sadness
of Roland's eyes—those expressive
eyes which Baid so many things—the
pathos of hia mouth, tho lingering
clasp in which he held her hand, all
affected her. There was oi magic about
liim which the girl did not resist,
though she was conscious of the other
side of it; the faint mixture of the
fictitious which did not impair the
eharm.
She stood and watched him from
the low window of the parlor which
looked tbat way, while tho fly was
being laden, with a blank countenance. She felt the corners of her
mouth droop, her eyes widen, her face
grow longer. It was as if all the
. novelty, the variety, tho pleasure of
life, wore going away. It was a dull
afternoon, which waa at once congenial as suiting the circumstances and
oppressive as enhancing the gloom.
She watched the portmanteau put in
as if she had been watching u funeral.
When Roland stepped in after his
grandfather, who in the softness of
the moment had offered, to the great
surprise of everybody, to accompany
him to the station, Hester still looked
on with melancholy gravity. She was
almost on a level with them where she
stood looking ' out; her mother all
smiles kissing her hand beside her.
"I wish you would show a little interest, Hester," Mrs. John said, "You
might at' least waive your hand, if it
were only for the old captain's sake
whom you profess to be so fond of."
Roland at this moment leaned uut of
the window of the fly and took off his
hat, to her for the last time. Mrs.
John thought it was barbarous to take
uo notice. She redoubled her own
friendly salutations; but Hester stood
like a stntuo, forcing a faint ghost of
a smile, but not moving a finger. She
stood thus watching them long after
they had driven away, till they had
almost disappeared in the smoke of
Redborough. She saw the fly stop at
the Orange aud Miss Catherine come
out of the door to take leave of him;
and then the slow vehicle disappeared
altogether. The sky seemed to lean
down, almost touching the ground;
the stagnant afternoon air had not a
breath to move it. Hester said to
herself that nothing more would happen now. She knew tbe afternoon
atmosphere, the approach of tea, the
scent of it in the air, the less ethereal
bread-and-butter, and then the long
dull evoning. It seemed endless to
look forward, as if it never would be
night. And Mrs. John, as soon ns the
fly was out of sight, had drawn her
chair toward the fire and begun to
talk. "I am sure I am very sorry he
has gone," Mrs. John said. "I did
not think I should have liked him at
first, but I declare I like him very
mueh uow. How long is it since ho
came, Hester? Only a fortnight! I
should have said three weeks at least.
I think it was quite unnatural of the
captain to talk of him as he did, for 1
nm sure he is a very nice young man.
Where are you going? not, I hope, for
one of your long walks; for the night
closes in very early now, and it will
soon be time for tea."
"Don't you think, mamma," Baid
Hester, somewhat hypocritically, "that
it would be kind to go in and keep
Mrs. Morgan company a little, as she
will be quite alone?"
"That is always your way as soon as
1 show any inclination for a little
talk," said her mother, provoked, not
without reason. Then she softened,
being at heart the most good-natured
of women. "Perhaps you are right,"
she said, "the old lady will be lonely.
Give her iny love and any I should
have come to see her myself, but
that—" Mra, John paused for a
reason—"but that I am afraid for my
neuralgia,' she added, triumphantly
"You know how bad it was the other
day."
Thus sanctioned, Hester threw hor
gray "cloud" round her, nnd ran round
to console Mis. Morgan, while her
mother arranged herself comfortably
with a footstool, a book upon tho table
beside her, and her knitting, but with
m furtive inclination toward an afternoon nap, which the grayness of the
day, th e early failing light in the dark
wainscoted parlor, and the absence of
all movement about hor, naturally inclined her to. Mn, John was at the
age when wo are vory much ashamed
of the afternoon nap, and she wns
Well provided with semblances ot occupation in case any one should come.
But Mrs. Morgan was far beyond any
auch simple deceit, Eighty has vast
advantages in this way. When she
felt disposed to doze a little she was
quite pleased, almost proud of the
achievement. She had indeed a book
on the table, with her spectacles carefully folded into it, but she did not
require any occupation.
"I had a kind of feeling that you
would come, my pet," she said, as
Hester appeared. "When I want you
very much I think aome kind little
angel must go and tap you on the
shoulder, for you alwaya come."
"The captain would say it is a brain
wave," said Hester.
"Tho captain says a great deal of
nonsense, my dear," aaid the old lady
with m smile; "but think of him going
with Roland to the station t He his
been vanquished, quite vanquished—
which is a great pleasure to ine. And
Emma is coming, I hope ahe will not
wear out the good impression—"
"Ii ihe not io— nice?" Hester
naked.
The old lady lookod her favorite
intently I n the face.   She saw the too
gnat clearneu of Hestor'i eyes, and
that her mouth waa not smiling, but
drawn downward; and a vague dread
filled her mind. She wu full of love
end charity, but she wai full of insight
too; and though she loved Roland,
she did not think it would be to the
advantage of Hester to love him.
"Roland is very nice," Bhe said.
Poor boy, perhaps that is his temptation. It ia hia nature to please whomsoever he comes across. It is a beautiful kind of nature; but I am not
sure that it is not very dangerous both
for himself—and others."
It was fortunate that Hester did not
divine what her friend meant.
"Dangerous—to please?*' she said,
with a little curiosity. She liked
Roland so much that, even from the
lipB of those who had more right to
him than she had, ahe did not like to
hear blame.
"To wish to please—everybody,"
said the old lady. "My poor lad! that
is his temptation. Your grandfather,
if he were here— My dear, I beg
your pardon. I have got into the way
of saying it: as if my old man was
your grandfather too."
"I like it," Hester said, with the
only gleam of her usual frank and
radiant smile which Mrs. Morgan hod
yet seen. But thia made the old lady
only more afraid.
"There is nobody he could be moro
fatherly to," Bhe said. "What I
meant whb that, if he were here, be
would have something ready out of a
book, as you and he aro always going
on with your poetries; but I never
was a poetry woman, ni you know.
Lifo is all my learning. And I have
seen people that have had plenty of
heart, Hester, if they had given it
fair play, but frittered it away on one
nnd another, trying to give a piece to
eaoh, making each believe that Bhe
(for it iB mostly upon women that the
spell works) was the ono above all
others. But you ara so young, my
darling, you will not know what I
mean.
A faint, uneasy color came on Hester's face.
"I think I know what you mean,"
she said. "I understand how you
should think so of Mr. Ashton. You
don't see so well as you did, dear Mrs.
Morgan, when you have not got your
spectacles on. If you did, you would
see that when he talks like that he ia
ready to laugh all the time,"
"Is that su, my love? Then I nm
very glad to hear you say so," cried
tbe old lady. But she knew very
well that her supposed want of sight
was a delusion, and thnt Hester knew
it was only for reading that she ever
used her spectacles. She felt, however, all the more that her wanting had been taken, and that it wna
ncce&sary to proceed further. "You
are young and aweet," she Baid, "my
dear; but the best thing still is that
you have sense. Oh, what it ia to
nave sense! it is the beat blessing in
life."
Hester made no reply to this praise.
Her heart was beating more quickly
than usual. What Bhe had said was
quite true; but all the time, though
he had been ready to laugh, and though
sho had been ready to laugh, she was
aware that there was something more.
The tone of banter had not boen alt.
The sense of something humorous
under thoso high-flown phrases had
not exhausted them. She was intended to laugh, indeed, if they did not
secure another sentiment; but the
tint aim, and perhaps the last aim, of
the insidious Roland, had been to secure this other sentiment. Hester
did not enter into theae distinctions,
but she felt them; and when she thus
put forward Mn. Morgan's failing
sight, it was with a natural casuistry
which ahe knew would be partially
seen through, and yet would have its
effect. This made her feel that there
was no reply to be made to the praise
cf her "sense" which .the,old lady had
given. Was it her cunning that the
old lady meant to praise? - Theie was
a little silence, and the subject of Roland was put aside, not, perhaps, quite
to the satisfaction of either; but there
was nothing more that could be aaid.
And presently the old captain camo
bock, groaning a little over his long
walk.
"Why do you never remind me," he
said, "what an old fool I am? To
drive in that jingling affair, and to
walk back—two miles if it is a yard—
well, then, a mile and a half. My
dear, what was half a mile when yuu
and I were young is two miles now,
and not an inch less; but I have seen
him off tbe premises. And now, Hester, we shall have our talks again and
our walks again without any interruption—"
"Do not apeak ao fait, Rowley.
There ii Emma coming, and Heater
will like a girl to talk with and to
walk with better than an old fellow
liku you."
"That old womau insults me," said
tho captain. "She thinks I am as old
as she is; but, Hester, you and I know
better. You are looking anxious, my
ohild. h-t you think we are a frivolous old pair talking as we ought not—
two old fools upon the brink of tho
gravo?"
"Captain Morgan! I to have auch
a thought! And what should I do
without you?" cried Hester, in quick
alarm. This brought the big tears to
her eyes, and perhaps she was glad for
various onuses to have a perfectly hon*
est and comprehensive chose in the
midst of her agitation for those tears.
"This was brought to my mind very
clearly to-day," said the old captain.
"When I saw that young fellow go off,
ii man in full career of his life, and
thought of his parents swept away--
the mother whom you know I loved,
Mary, aa dearly as a man ever loves
bis child, and the father whom I hated
both ao much younger than we are,
and both gone for years; and here are
no still living as if wo had.been for-

"We are not forgotten," Baid the
old lady, in her easy (chair, smiling
upon him, folding those old hands
which were now laid up from labor-
hands that had worked hard in their
day. "We have some purpose to
serve yet, or we would not be here."
"I suppose so -I suppose so," said
the old man, with a sigh; and then he
struck hia stick upon the floor, and
cried uut, "but not, God forbid it! as
the instruments of evil to the house
that has sheltered us, Mary. My
heart misgivea me. I would like at
least, before Anything comes of it, that
we should be out of the way, you
and I."
"You were always a man of little
faith," his wife said. "Why should
you go out of your way to meet the
evil that by God's good grace will
never come? It will never come; we
have not heen preserved for that, You
would as soon teach mo Job's lesson
as to believe that, iny old man."
"What was Job's lesson? It was
'Though he slay me, yet will I trust
in bim,'"   Captain Morgan said,
