Sclentinc Miscellany.
Giiopino After Troth.—"The
human intellect," snys Reclus, "is
still compelled to be content with
mere hypotheses as to the origin of
our own and other palanetsry globes.
All cosmogonies, from the legend of
the savage, who imagined that the
earth sprang from a sneezing-lit of
his god, down to the theory of tbe
great Button, according to which the
planets of the solar system are the
fragments launched into space by a.
collision between a comet and the
sun, the vague conjectures of the
ancients, and the ideas struck oat
by modern science, are all alike
mere suppositions more or leu plausible and ingenious."
Greenland Exploration.—From
the earliest times the unknown interior of Greenland has been described as a snow-covered plateau, the
few travelers who have attempted
to cross it having invariably found
the ice to become smoother and
smoother, and to give place to a vast
expanse of loose snow at a considerable distance from the ice-mam-in
and the coast. The greatest known
height of the plateau is some 6,000
or 7,000 feet. Another effort will
bo made to cross this desolate waste
on snowshoes this season by a Norwegian party, consisting of Sr. Nan-
sen and five companions, who expect to land at about 66 ° north
latitude on the east coast and walk
to Disko Island, in 70 ° north latitude. ' The expedition will make no
provision for returning to their ships,
and must reach the west coast, which
has settlements, or starve.
Aeronautical Physics.—Though
a common ballon rises because tbe
enclosed hydrogen is s(>'light Mi
make the weight of the whole less
than that of air of the same volume,
the pressure from within is required
to confine the gas. If it were desired to get the necessary lightness
by means of a vaccuum, however, as
ih an envelope, it would have to be of
immense strength. A mathematician has calculated that a "steel vaccuum balloon" would just float if the
thickness of the shell were .000055
of the radius of the sphere, A balloon 100 feet in diameter, foi instance, must have a shell not more
than one-thirtieth of an inch thick,
and less if braced, must be without
tendency to buckle, and must be,
made of steel oppaM»;dl."i'.taf_tiiig,li.
crushing of more than 130,000
pounds to the square inch in order
to withstand the pressure of the air.
As steel of so great crushing-strength
caqnot bo made into suoh a shell,
and plates of much greater thickness
would buckle, a steel vaccuum balloon oould not be made to sustain
even its own weight.
' A Physical Giant.—Since the
announcement of Prof. Bunsen's researches twenty-five years ago, spectrum analysis has grown, affirms
Mr. Mr J. Macadam, into a veritable giant—a giant who, if he continues to grow—and he promises to
do so—will aoon overtop many of the
other children of chemistry. Already spectrum analysis lias over-
stopped the bounds of this world,
and soaring aloft has enabled us to
tell the composition of the sun; although that luminary is distant 91,-
000,000 miles. The more distant
stars have also fallen a prey to this
giant, and having fed upon worlds,
his unsatiated appetite has caused
him to swallow even those curious
gaseous collections known as nebulea.
His empire thus extends from earth
to sky, and whatever can be seen,
whatever gives out light, that spectrum analysis has broken up into its
elements. By means of spectrum
analysis we are able to tell that the
sun spots, whioh at one timo
caused so much alarm, nre
craters, from whioh lai*ge hydro-
genjets are burning; that the moon
and Venus have no atmosphere,
while Jupiter and Mars have atmospheres ; that there is aqueous vapor
in Saturn; '.hat the nebulae are
mere gaseous collections; that the
comets contain carbon; that the col
ored stars aro so colored because a
portion of their light is obscured by
absorption caused by gaseous elements, present in the stars, etc,
Spectrum analysis is now luring
largely used for the detection of poi
sons, suoh as cases of death caused
by coal gas, carbon monoxide, thallium, etc; and among its other applications may bo mentioned its use in
determining the shades derivable
from a mixture of several aniline
colors, etc.

Berlin, June 20.—The tott says
there is no cause for belief that nny
change iu the German policy, adverse
to Russia, will be made, and that the
fears pf the French are equally without
foundation, The Emporor William 11
is less likely to attack France merely
to gain laurels tlian the moon is to
visit the earth. When the French see
that all Germany wants of France is tu
be let alone the conditions for a permanent friendship will come into
being. Nevertheless the tone of Uie
emperor's proclamation may serve to
remind those unfriendly to German}*,
wherever they msy be, of tlie Hohen-
zollern manner of making war and
assure them that any unjust assault
upon Germany will be repelled like
the French attack of 1870. The Emperor William II will wield the sword
as did his glorious ancestors, but only
In defence of the Fatherland against
unjust attacks.

Lokbok, Juno 21.—The divorce
oourt has granted a decree of divorce
to Mrs. Boueicsult against her husband
Dion. The judgment fixes the costs
upon Mr. Boueicsult. '
Advices from Massowah state that
King'John of Abyssinia is dead.
A meeting of the conservatives was
held at the foreign office to-day, Lt rd
Salisbury presiding. He referred to
the two recent defeats which had been
sustained by the government in parliament and said that the government had
been placed in a false position by the
action of Mr. Jennings and his friends,
who introduced a resolution in regard
to the abuses of the admiralty offico in
the house of commons, on which the
vemmont was defeated.   The pre-
ier attributed the loss of the Ayr
election to this cause and strongly advised conservative members to consult
the government leaders in regard lo
their future actions in parliament wilh
a view to concerted action on various
questions. Mr. Stsnley Leigtiton and
others urged that the local government
bill was unpopular snd it sorely tried
the oldest and truest members of the
party. Mr. W. H. Smith, the first
lord of the treasury, said that in dropping the licensing clauses of the bill
the government could not consistently
retain the clause regarding Sunday
closing. Mr. Smith further declared
he would not retain his office a moment
unless he had the full confidence of the
conservative members of parliament.

"V London, June 21.—Further particulars from Oxford show that Lord Lansdowne received a marked ovation.
When the degrees ware conferred Professor Bryce, in introducing him
referred to his popularity in Oanada,
to the success of his regime, to the suppression of the rebellion, and the opening of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
He prophesied his success in India.
The undergraduates sang " For he's a
jolly good fellow."

tho presidential nomination in the national convention, we sre willing to
give the old man another show snd let
him get knocked out again. We are
willing to give Gresham a similar show
and tho rest of the small fry aad then
when they have been proved beyond
doubt dead, as they surely will (not
one of them has even a ghost cf a
cbaricefor nomination) we will let the
Blaine boom spring for sll it is worth
and carry the convention. The polioy.
of California is this: We propose to
keep Blaine's colors flying and at the ,
same time allow partisans of small candidates lo prove thst our candidate ia
a political necessity. Blaine would not
accept the nomination on the first ballot, but if it is proved that np one else
can be nominated and that he is, the
only available man the party bas,' he
will take it." " Has Blaine ever expressed himself or given you to understand so?" "No.but those whoaieoW
est to him, his friends and hia sons,
have said so."

SPECULATION.
Chicaoo, June 22.—The battle waged'
in convention ball this morning was a n
most stubborn one. The'anticipated,
strength of the Sherman forces wss not
realized, and, as it ia not expected to develop farther, tbe inevitable stampede
to Blaine will be next in order. It ia
believed that Foraker Is working in
Blaine's interests, aad that he will snow
kis hand early. Californisas are con-
vinced that Blaine will be nominated.
The programme of Blaine's managers is
to use tne pronounced Blaine forces in
such a manner aa to preserve the equilibrium among the leading candidates
through several ballots. Then by creating the impression in the convention that '
neither Sherman, Alger, Harrison, Depew or Gresham can obtain the nomination, Blaine will be pot to the front to
carry off the prize by a unanimous vote
of the convention. Delegates who came
here, regarding Blaine out of the race,
are amazed to see men who they most
had right to expect would affirm the sin.

Our enterprising and sanguine co-
temporary of Ay. Vancouver Nevis,.
in a retrospective and anticipatory
article thfs morning, after reviewing
the progress made since last midsummer, and touching on the prospects
opening out for the coming year,
ventures to hope that the population
of VancbaVer by the midsummer of
1888. (next year) " wUl be nearly
20,000." Since last June, the A'ews
says, the population has more than
doubled. The papulation at present
is estimated at a little ovor 0,000,
so that the News expects it to bo
more than trebled in another year.
"We hope that our cotemporary may
not be disappointed in his sanguine
forecast. If it should prove correct,
Westminster, with all her advantages, aud an ordinary amount of
foresight and energy on the part of
her citizens, should not fail to nd
vanoe in like ratio.
The Saturday Beoiea recently
printed on article on "Canada," in
whicli the "smart and shallow" Jin-
goite exhibits in a remarkable way
what it does not know about this
Dominion of ouis. After explaining,
quite to its own Satisfaction no
doubt, the attitude and aims of political parties in Oanada, it comes to
a sort of summary of the causes why
this is thus, and among other things,
remarks that "the results of the B.
N. A. aot have not yet satisfied
either Manitoba, Vancouvor, or, we
believe, Nova Scotia." Since Npva
Scotia has long bjien known as the
chronio kicker of the Dominion, the
"we believe" is decidedly weak, but
where is the provinoe of "Vancouver!" Is the Dominion so big that
a whole province has succeeded in
hiding itself from the rest of us I lf
the Saturday Beview would be good
enough tp send over a commissioner
to point out the new territory which
it has discovered, it would make a
distinct addition to the obligations
under whioh its lucid explanation of
how we are trying to govern ourselves has placed ns.
Victoria is having an interesting
time. The disputed site of the propoaed jubilee hospital is engaging
tbe attention of its citizens and the
press. A liquor license has recently
been granted by the licensing board
to one David F. Fee, in a quiet residence neighborhood, which is very
naturally calling forth indignant
protests from the householders adjacent Then the Victoria district
election is being fought out in the
Saanich neighborhood, and, according to the Times, the first gun has
been fired. The same authority announces that Mclllmoyl and Tolmie
were on the stump, and, if the
Times' version of the affair is to be
accepted, poor Tolmie was badly
"stumped." But to correct suoh an
impression as that, a small dose of
Colonist, sans grano talis, is all that
is necessary. As if all these excitements were not sufficient, the "queen
city" is to have a free postoffice delivery, commencing on Monday, July
Snd, and morning and afternoon four
gentlemen in the uniform of the Dominion postoffice department will
perambulate their respective districts and save the tired citizens a
trip to the postoffice. We congratulate our Viotoria ffiends on the
fact that they are "getting there."
An incident, second to nono in importance and significance, is recited
in the Timet of the 20th, Two Indians, it appears, were leading a
young bull through the principal
streets of the enterprising capital,
presumably to take advantage of the
excellent pasturage which springs
np white the citizens are indulging
in tlieir usual siesta. 'The bull,
"feeling good," it would seem, from
the effects of his unwonted "feed,"
determined to have gore, Suddenly
hunching his back, he broke away
from the astonished "red men,"
kicked a white man, who imprudently attempted to put on the brakes
by hanging pn to his tail, across the
street, and, mistaking Aid. Kelly's
tinware establishment for a china-
shop, charged into it as if he had a
season's engagement at the zodiac
and was trying to catch the train.
Our readers will be glad to learn
that this daring attempt to " paint
the town red" resulted, as such enterprises usually do, in the discomfiture of the would-be artist, and
that the island city is getting on as
well aa oould be expected, all things
const"
taining our present population, but
inducing those who have gone to the
United States to return to Canada.
In introducing   those   resolutions,
S^nAtor'McInties qilot«l°the '6pin-
ions of eminent medical   mon   who
were opposed to the importation   of
"waifs i and strays" i,from   London.
Dr."* Ferguson,  of    Welland,   was
quoted as saying:    "The virus of tlio
vilest form of disease might just as
well  be   brought out and surgeons
sent through tho country to innocu-
lato the peoplo with it.   The children wero the offspring of vice, and if
not physioally, wore   mentally   diseased."   Dr. Wilson, of Elgin, and
and Dr. Macdonald, of Huron, largely shared in this viow.   The senator
also read tbe resolutions passed   by
the Toronto city council, protesting
against the continuance of shipping
to this country such nn undesirable
class of immigrants.    Knglish   authorities wero likewise cited, showing the coudition, the surroundings,
and the antecedents of   tlie   classes
from which the pauper immigration
came.    Rev.   Andrew Menms, author of the " Bitter Cry of Outcast
Loudon,"   was  quoted as giving a
frightful account of child life in that
city, and ^Ir. Geo. Sims, the well-
known writer and philanthropist, as
saying that in London  "generation
after generation has been roared in
the most hideous wretchedness and
immorality, the ohildren   weak  in
body and frequently in mind, grow
ing up with a  precocious  and   inherited wickedness."   In the Eus-
ton  road   district,   Mr. Sims Baid,
there was one public house for overy
twenty families,   and   ut  the bar
might be seen groups comprising a
greot-grand-mother,    grand-mother,
mother and baby—four generations
together—and all dirty and dishevelled, and—drunk, except  the baby,
and even that uifortunato mite was
having its first taste of  the   deadly
stuff which had so materially assisted in the downfall and degradation
of its wretched ciders.    Very naturally Senator Mclnnes does not do-
sire   to   see the vice, weakness nnd
poverty of old England transplanted
and   reproduced  on Canadian soil,
arguing very  properly,   no doubt,
that we have quite enough   of  our
own to regulate and  relieve. * Referring to the last clause of his resolution,   Senator  Mclnnes stated
that a desirable class of citizens was
constantly leaving Canada   for   the
United States, and thoir places were
being filled by   the   pauper  immigrants from the old country, and the!
senator argued that  pauper  immigration should be discouraged and
prohibited,   and   to encourage our
own people to remnin in the country
steps should bo taken to break down
"the miserable, contracted and selfish policy which has built up a commercial   Chinese   wall between the
two countries.   The commerce between Canada  and   the neighboring republio should be, as nature intended it to be, as freo as the water
that flows down the Ottawa, or the
flowing  of  the  mighty tide of the
ocean—that and that alone  is   tho
means by which we will succeed in
retaining out own population." Senator Mclnnes' motion, both   in   respect to prohibiting pauper immigration  and  to the establishing of
reciprocity with the United States,
was vigorously opposed  by several
hon. senators, among them Senator
Abbott, who quoted from a detailed
statement, showing that during the
past  year   2,298    ohildren    were
brought out to this country,   which
the hon. senator considered was not
so large a number as to cause alarm,
especially, as they were well taken
care of by charitable persons and societies, and were not nearly such a
dangerous class of  immigrants  as
might be supposed from some of the
quotations put forward by Senator
Mclnnes.   After a lengthy and animated disoussion, in which a great
many of the senators took part, the
motion was withdrawn.

was the cause of k very spirited debate and elicited a good deal of valuable information on a subjoot which

interest to the people of this provinoe. Senator Mclnnes' motion
consisted of three clauses, and was
as follow*: (1) Tbe importation of
pauper children and adults from emigration hMW« and poor law Unions
should l» disooaraged. (2) The importation of inmates of Workhouses

; foimthoi'ifnetico. :'■•
Tattooing vill stpV. well upon tha
plump, fair-skin ned lad before us, aud .
the Professor evidently thinks he in a
subject to take pains with, as ho sits
carefully mixing his Ink In a joint ol
bamboo and preparing his weapon.
This is a brass rod nearly two feet long
and about half an inch thick; It Ie
weighted at the top "With a little ornamental figure, and at the other end has
h hollow point divided by two cross elite
Into fonr fine pricks.
The Professor examines the "business
end" critically, and, having satisfied
I himself that it is sharp enough, tucks up
his putsoe and squats at Fho My in's aide.
Selecting a spot on the thigh, he placet!
both feet ou lt a few inches apart, and,
stretching tho skin tight, draws the out-
* line of tho first figure—a tiger rampant
—with an inky splinter of bamboo.
This is soon done, and relieving himself of a large mouthful of bctelmit, the
Professor settles down to work in earn-
( est Loaning forward through his widely*
[ parted knees he balances the brass style
daintily, and clasping it with the finger
I nnd thumb of the right hand, makes a
[ "bridge" of the left, which ho rests oil
( the surface between his feet.
After sliding the instrument through
J his fingers once or twice, as if to tako
[ aim, he makes a start and pricks iv way
I steadily with a light, firm touch that is
f wonderfully quick and true. In less
ithan five minutes the tiger with Its sur-
Prounding border is finished, and tiio art-
[ Ut removes his feet from the distended
[skin and washes oil the superfluous ink
f to see how hiB work has come out.
Everybody presses forward to look at
| the picture, which shows np in bold,
| relief on the rapidly-formed swelling.
Moung Soik exchanges a remark with :
I his wife, and the tattooer resumes hia
working position to draw the outline of
Ihe next figure. The boy, stupefied with
I opium, lies insensible to the pain, while
lone figure after another gradually ap-
I pears on his skin.
I Deep as tho points of the stylo sink they
[drawbut littlo blood,but the limb swells
lln a manner that would alarm any one
I who did not know it would rt.timi to its
■normal size in a dny or two. Fever some- .
Jtinies Intervenes, and in that case the pii-
■tlent waits for a time beforo the work of :
■illustration Is resumed, so it. often ox-
■teuds over a period of a week or ten days,
■during which the inconvenience suffered
's considerable.
Without tlie aid of opium the-pro'ceas
would be a much longer one. I found
that I could not endure the application
[of the style for more than 80 consecutive
(seconds without flinching so much aa io
Interfere with the operator's movements,
nor the skin is pricked over socloselythnt
It becomes too tender to sustain their
Repetition.

True Story of nn Economical Farmer and
ft Heady-Wltted niacktuull h.
J There lived not very many years ago-a
Ihort distance from the town of Beaver,
fchich, by tho way, is looking like a
loung bride just now in her boudoir of
Jreen hills, a mau of extraordinary uieaii-
less.  I don't think it would be unjust to
liy that he wag a mistt.  Mott of you
lould enjoy the story more if I gave you
lis name.  But I won't do it.
•One day iu he waa starting ont for
leaver to do his weekly shopping—for
pen he had to buy something for thesup-
krt of his family—his wife same out and
Iked him to bay her ft darning-needle.
V'What's the matter with the one I
blight you last winter rM
I "The eye's broken oat,"- ehe replied.
l'-Briug the needle here," said he.  "I'm
pt going to allow any such extrava-
bnce.  I'll have the needle mended."
■The woman was wtie In her generation,
Td made no protest.   Sho brought out
be broken needle.
The economical farmer rode Into Beaver
fid stopped first of all atthe blacksmlth'n
pop. He took ont the needle aud handed
to tho blacksmith. "I want that
■ended," he said. n
I The blacksmith knew his customer, aud
raping hia face perfectly straight, aaid
bat the eye could be made whole tn an
bur's time. The farmer rode away,. and
he blacksmith walked across the street
bd bought a new needle for a oent or
Iwo. k
J When tho farmer called again the
Blacksmith gave him the newneedle. The
Lrmer looked at the smooth, polished
lurface of the steel, and remarked that it
Tras a good job. —
| "How much will it be!" said he.
"Ten cents," aaid the blacksmith, and
Iho farmer as he paid it remarked tbat he
■new the needle could be mended, bnt his
pile would have gone to the expense nf
luying a new one tf he hadn't Interfered.

Dickcaaconsitlere*!" Davitt Copperfield"
ns the best of his books, nntl the reason
for his preference mny lie looked for in
tho fact that It is to a great'extent auto*
biographical. The mithor lias himself
declared that many of the. incidents in
DAvid'a career nre identical With those
experienced by himself, so that, up toa
certain point, ho may ho considered as the
prototype of the hero of the story.
To a certain extent, also, Mr. Mlcawber
was a portrait ot. the author's father, who,
liko him,* was remarkable for rhetorical
exuberance, a .peculiarity which,fouud
frequent.aud always agreeable, expression in ninny of *the novelist's letters,
written long before "Copperfield" was
thought of.
"No one,'! says his biographer, "could
know the elder Dickens without secrotly
liking him tho better for those flourishes
of spaech, which adapted themselves co
readily to hla gloom iw well as .to hla
cheer fulness, that'itwns difficult not to
"fancy they hnd helped him Considerably
In both, aud had rendered more tolerable
toliim.il! also'more possible, tho shade
aad sunshine uf his checkered life. ...  ,  .
■ "It delighted Dickens to remember
' that it was of one of' Ida connection! hia
iiiUjer wrote a celebrated sentenco:
"'Ami I must express my tendency to
believe that his longevity ii (to'say tho
least of it) extremely problematical.'"
'PheY.ilalso existed in the personal ap-
peavanco of Micawber a resemblance to
that of his prototype. A friend and neighbor of Mr. John Dickens describes him aa
"a chatty, pleasant companion, possess*
lug a varied fund of anecdote, and a genuine vein of humor."
"Hq waa a well-built man, ratheratout,

STEEL PENS.
The Invention That Speedily Superseded
"the Oray Goose Quill,"     -
1 The earliest notice of steel pens that I
havo met with is by Wordsworth,
Iu 1600 he and bis family were occupying the house at Coleorton during the «!>•
•} 'tico of Sir George and Lady Beaumont,
uud iu the month of Decemherthe poet
wrote to the latter what he calls "the
longest letter I ever wrote in my life,"
and with reason,as it fills eighteen pages.
Jle begins:
"My Dear Lady Beaumont: There's pen-
maushipforyout I shall not be ablo to
keep it up to the end in this style, notwithstanding I have tha advantage of
Writing with ono of your steel pens, with
which MtsKlluLchlMonhnsjustfurniihed
pie;" .'
Tho next mention that I have noted Is
by Dr. Kilchiner, in 1824, when speaking
of a friend above CO, he says:
') "This »train of the eye, and occasion for
spectacles of a high magnifying power, la
particularly found in mending pens, so
that he lias a sufficient linmber of pens to
prevent the necessity of mending any' of
thorn until he hus finished writing."
' To this there tn appended a note:
, "Tp those who. And Uie mem,log of pens
rather a difficult Job, I recommend' the
occasional' use of a steel peu, especially
Whon they wish ta wrlto very small and
neatly."—"Tho Economy of the Eyes,"
London, 1834, p. 05.
i Tho steel pen seems to have been still a
rarity at that time, and my own schoolboy
experience tends to show that it was.

it, restore its original color, promote Its
rapid and vigorous growth, and impart
to it the lustre and freshness of youth.
I have used Ayor's Hair Vigor for a
long time, and am convinced of its
value. When I was 17 years of age my
hair began to turn gray. I commenced
using the Vigor, and was surprised at
the good effects it produced. It not
only restored tho color to my hair, but
so stimulated its growth, that I have
now mora hair than ever before.*—

by Sir Mattlicy Baillio Begbie, chief
justice, to the Rev. Mr. Starr at Victoria two weeks ago, the Blaine Jour-
no! says: "Wo would gently suggest
to our British Columbia friends that
they give their supreme court a vacation, furnish them with plenty of
spending money, and let them travel
around the state supreme courts of the
United States, and learn how to maintain a dignity becoming their robes."

Mayor Sholton informs us that a
a half-breed named Sanderson shot
two buffalo bulla about two miles north
of Medicine Hat a few days ago. The
animals have been in the vicinity for

shooting them he refrainod from doing
so thinking that he might find others
of their species in the snme neighborhood. The heads are said to be magnificent specimens, for which $75
apiece are asked.—Calgary Tribune.

Agricultural Prosperity.
One of the beat signs of the agricultural prosperity of the country is the
Bale of fanning implements, such u
mowers, reapers, plows, etc. The
agents of the different manufacturers
of farming implements, now canvassing this district, report sales to be
over une hundred per cent, greater
than last year and nearly three hundred per cent in advance of tbe year
previous. As an instance of the way
implement, are Belling, Mr. W, H.
Jenkins yesterday sold four mowers,
two reapers tnd one plow for D. M.
Osborne & Co., of Aubum, N. V. Mr.
Thos. Cunningham received I carload
of implements yesterday from John
Elliott & Son, the bulk of which waa
disposed of before arrival. Everything
throughout tho district indicates a
bountiful harvest and unusual prosperity among tho farmers.
The postponed crioket match, Vancouver vs. Westminster, lakes place tomorrow, commencing at 11 o'olock.
Westminster will bo represented by
Ddckrill, Raymond, Miles, Ohappell,
Cliilbrd, Lewis, Fletoher, Walker, Wilson, Woods and Armstrong, whilo
Vancouver will be championed by
Clinton, Nelson, Beck, Elwood, Freeman, Wilkinson, Gorriooh, Leonard,
Schofield, Prenter and Gr.een (captain).
It will be observed that Westmin-
ster has been greatly strengthened
since the last match by the addition of
Woods, Chapoll, Fletcher and Walker,
all of whom aro much superior to those
whose places they fill. A real good
game maybe exfecttd and we hope to
sto Westminstor return home victorious.

Tke North Arm Social.
The strawberry social at Mr. F. Mc-
Cleery's residence, on Iho North Arm,
yeaterday, proved a complete success.
The social was hold fur the pupuse of
raising fands for the new Presbyterian
manse—a most worthy object. A
large number of people from thit city,
Vancouver, and the settlements along
the river, wore present and freely contributed towards the success of the
undertaking. Mr. MoCloery and the
ladies of the church did everything in
their power to make tho dty enjoyable
for all, and it is generally conceded,
by those present, that they succeeded
to perfection. The strawberries and
croam were delicious, as were also the
other refreshments. Dancing wu iu
progress during the evening and those
fond of trippiug the "light fantastic"
had an opportunity of indulging their
tastes to the utmost. The steamers
with the Westmintter excursionists on
board returned to the city shortly he-
foro 1 o'clock this morning.

Tho BainBfather Family will arrive
from Calgary on Sunday, and on Monday evening they give one of their
famous Scottish concerts in the Oddfellows' Hall. All lovers of Scotch
songs should avail themselves of this
splendid opportunity of hearing them
rendered by such renowned singers.
Wherever the Bainsfather family have
visited they havo met with great appreciation and success. The Newcastle, N. B. Advocate thus comments
on their entertainment:—"Mr. Bainsfather tells a story well. He understands the Scottish characters thoroughly, and his delineations embeliahed
the weakness of his fellow-countrymen
with a humor that aoftened criticism
and loft nothing but merriment for hie
audience. Mr. Bairnsfather brings a
dramatic elegance to bear upon his
singing that gives ..refinement to hia
entertainment. He has a pond knowledge of Scettiah life and history which
he uses to advantage in the interpretation of the songs he sings."

An Absconding Clerk.
Mark Franois, who hu been acting
u clerk for U.S. Consul Stovons, sinoe
Mr. Hawthornethwaite was appointed
vice-consul at Nanaimo, disappeared
the latter part of last week and hu
not been heard of sinco. Col. Stevena
hu been in San Francisco for a couple
of weeks undergoing a surgical operation, and during his absence the olerk
wu given oharge uf the office. Mr.
Hawthornethwaite arrived from Nanaimo to look alter the business of the
office and it was uot until Tuesday
tlternoon that the safe wu opened.
It wat then discovered that the departing olerk had carried off all the,
culi, it ii not known to what amount.
Col. Stevens will return from Ban'
Francisco early next week, when the
details of the defalcation will be learned. The absent Francis owes considerable money in small debts throughout the oity.—Colonist

Tk. Claret* Minstrels.
The Hicks-Sawyer colored minstrels
opened totfiir-sizcd audience lut evoning in the Princess Opera Houae, and
gave one of the most pleaaing entertainments theatre-goers of Winnipeg
have enjoyed for somo time. The
troupe consists of some excellent vocalists and comedians, and thero is
nothing vulgar ur offensive in the
whole performance. The singing of
Mr. Wallace King, who possesses a re-
m_ifrka|ilyila,wriet tpnor voice, and Mr.
Johnson, whore bass is uf._*reat powor
and' compass, elicited rounds of applause, and with Mosira. Speed, Thomas, Jaokson and Donna compose a six-
tette whose harmonious blending of
voices make the sweetest of music. The
Connor Bros, gave perhaps the best
acrobatic performance ever soen in
Winnipeg, introducing a numbor of
new and extremely dillicult feats. A
special feature was the drill of the colored knights of labor, which wai executed with remarkable preeiiion.
Taken altogether the troupe is on excellent one, getting off very few cheat-
nuts, and having but one weak point
—the orchestra. Nearly every member wu encored, and if the laughter
and enthusiasm of the audience are
any indication there will be t full
house to-night, when the programme
will be repoated.—IKinni'iiey Call.
