' Nellie Oould ii one of the bright-
eat and sweetest little Ufitn in New
York. She hu been fully educated
and is highly acoonrpliihod. She
is an artiit of no mean ability, and
hercoUeotioo of bricabrair whioh
haa been attorned by her peneil and
bruih has been greatly admired.
She drones plainly bnt richly, and
when in town she ean be aeen any
afternoon driving through the park
with one of her brothers. She is
probably one ofthe richest heiresses
in America, and at her father's
death will come in tor $20,000,000
or 130,000,000. Like her mother,
she is not to proud too wait on her-
•elf, and there ia no French maids
jn the Oould establishment. Mrs.
Oould and her daughter go shopping
the tame as other women do, and
return home with their arms filled
with bundles. They don't mind
riding in horse can, and they don't
put on nearly as much style as the
wife and daughter of the grocery-
man who supplies them with the
the necessaries of life.—N. Y.
World. ','.
Many people do not know how
easily they can protect themselves
and ohildren againit the bites of
gnata and other Insects. Weak carbolic acid sponged on the akin and
hair, and in some casea the clothing,
will drive away the whole tribe, A
great many ohildren and not a few
adults are tormented throughout the
whole summer by minute enemies.
We know penotu who are afraid of
pionics ana even of their own gar
dens on this, amount.   Clothing is
seen a child whose foot' tmtPa*hkle
had been stung though the stocking ao seriously, that for days she
oould not wear a bather shoe. All
this can be averted according to onr
experience, and that we believe
of many others, by carbolio acid
judiciously used, The safest plan
is to keep a solution of the acid.
The solution, should not contain
more than six or seven per cent and
it may be added to water until the
latter smells strongly. This may
readily and with* perfect safety be
applied with a sponge. We bare
no doubt that horses and cattle
could be protected in the same way
from the flies which sometimes nearly madden them, and it even seems
possible that that terrible scourge
the African Tsetse fly might be
kept off in the same manner.—£on-
don Lancet.
There are three separate sources
of the ponifioial revenue. The fint
is the interest of a large sum left by
Pope Pius IX. to the Papal treasury, the principal of this
being invested in English Government funds, and the interest amounting to ubout 1600,000
annually.' To this must be added a
sum equal to the amount furnished
by the Peter's Pence fund, which,
however, has fallen off of late yean,
This cansitutes the ordinary budget
of the Holy See as distinguished
from the extraordinary budget.
Tbe latter ia derived from a third
source and is supplied by the receipts of the Apostolic Chancellery.
The sale of titles of nobility, decoration!, blesiingi in articulo mortis,
altar privileges, private chapels,
ecclesiastical titlti—auch are a few
of the items which go to make up
the extraordinary budget. It
amounts to an average of 1500,000
per annum, and serves to make up
the private purse of the Sovereign
Pontiff, that on which he rolies to
exeroise his geiieriosity. It wilt be
observed that the private budget of
the Pope is thus derived, in a great
measure, from the satisfaction of
human vanity. The ordinary budget of the Holy See, whioh, as stated above, amounts to $1,200,000
per annum, is distributed by the
major dono of the Vatican among the
Cardinals residing in Rome—about
15,000 a year eaoh—the prelates of
the Papnl courts, the secretaries,
nuncios, the pontifical body-guard,
eto The Popeis very abstemious in his
habits, and scarcely spends any part
of hia large income on himself. But
he spends most generous sums relieving the poor, in building schools,
and in  maintaining   the Catholic
firass of Italy and Europe, There
I another large part of Pope Loo's
income, which he never touched.
This is the annually allowance ot
1600,000 accorded to the Vatican
under the law ot Papal guarantees,
passed when Victor Emanuel took
poaaesiion ot Borne.   The annual
income of this money has gone on
accumulating for seventeen yean,
and now reaches an enormous sum.

New Yokk, Shpt 19.-The Times
Philadelphia special says: Tho President gave n reception to the visiting
governon of different states in hia
parlor after the parade which was over
at 2:30 o'clock last Friday. It wss
noticeable that Cleveland and Hill
stood apart from the others for some
time and after the President had
shaken hands, with the other governon
and they hod returned, Gov. Hill remained and the president and he
chatted and laughted for a long time.
This is one of the reasons why the president arrived late at the Clover Club
dinner. Hill and his staff were at the
same hotel with the president and at
theformen request Hill met Mn.
Cleveland and she was particularly
pleasant of course. Cleveland and
Hill chatting and laughing and standing apart from the others, waa talked
about by the governon and it got about
the hotel. A prominent republican of
this state who has held high offico in
the gift of the people asked one of
governor Hills staff that night while
they were standing in the hotel Corridor. "How about Hill for president?"
"Oh that was all fixed in New York
three days ago." "Hill not be » candidate he and his friend arc for Cleveland for re-nomination."

Before Governor Hill loft here it

Grant for secretary of state.

in on address to the offlcerSof his

exercise to offensive taotics which were
proper to the French army. He Concluded his remarks as follows: "We
have to-day more need than ever of
the qualities of the warrior The hour
bos nut yet struck for a disarmament
of Europe. It ia madness to believe
it, and a crime to say it; for it points
to peace at any price as the goal to
which our country should aspire, and
our enemies, who often appraise us at
our real value, better than we do ourselves, know well that we have nut
got as far as that. More than that,
we must continue the work; it is for
Franco."

From the North,

11 schooners in Sitka, including ths
British scale™ Dolphin, Anna Beck,
Grace, W, P. Sayward and Ada, the
latter having been seised on the 6th
August, and ahe arrived at Sitka day
before the Ancon arrived from the
south.   She had 1876 skins.
The news of their release was not
taken with good grace by some of the '
seised captains, who would have preferred to have been given a fair trial in
the court, instead of being dismissed
without a word of explsnation after
six weeks' detention. Capt. Warren's
steam schooner gnee has been chartered by the American government to go
to Ounalaska and bring all the seised
seal skins to Sitks. The schooner
Challenge wss the only one whieh hsd
a trial, and her captain was acquitted,
there was no proof thst she had sealed
in the Behring Sea. The Challenge
was not taken in the Behring Sea, but
on her way there. When he wu ae-
quitted the captain demanded his
skins, snd this led to the chartering of
the Grace. Altogether there have
been 15 schoonen seised. The captain
says it wu during fogey weather that
his wu taken. When the fog cleared
they found the cutter near them, and
fell euy captives. When the captain
wu seized on the Dolphin, he uked
the commander uf the Rush to allow
him to lake the Anns Beck, whieh wu
stripped at Ounalaska, to Sitka. Thia
request Was acquiesced in snd the ere*
put aboard. The captain then staled
ho would not take the schoonen to
Sitka until a representative of the
American government wu placed on
each vessel. Thu was doue, and the
schooners procaoded to Sitks. The
oaptain does not think llio other Viotoria schoonen, the Favorite, Kate
and Triumph, have been seised.
By the cutter Rush there arrived a
sailor in Sitka who is the only survivor of tho sealing schooner, Napolean,.
whioh was wrecked in tho Arotic Ocesn
two years ago. He tells a terrible tale
of suffering The vessel got crushed
in the ice, and the crew hsd tu tske
to the boats, snd the man who arrived
at Sitka was one of the eighteen who
were on the ice for thirty days.: Dur-'
ing this time, his seventeen companions
died from starvation aod exposure.
He wu picked up by the Esquimaux,
and the sailor lived among them until
the trip of the Bear Into the Arctic,
when lie was found among his protect-
on. The cutter brought him down
and connocted with the Rush in Behring's Sea, and the latter brought him
to Sitka.
The Bear brought down the murderer ol Archbishop Seghera, to where it
connected'with the Rush, which latter
steamer took him to Sitka. He will
be tried on the second Monday In
November.
The Rush has been deputed to bring
duwn the Indian hunten and white
enwa of the seised schoonen to Victoria. It ia expected that she will arrive down in about a week.
Then are a number; of varieties of
corns. Holloway's Corn Cun will remove any of them. Call on your druggist and get a bottle at onoe.

j&ailj! $ ritish Columbian
Monday Eveulaa, Sept. IS, 1881.
The Seattlo Post, which hns always been a very enthusiastic admirer of Blaine, mentions a very
affecting incident which is said
lately to have occurred. According to the story, H. R. H. the
Prince of Wales and Mr. Blaino
happened to be together at a certain
Herman watering place. They
were frequently together, often took
long walks, and convened much on
American political affaire. One
day the Irish question eamo up between them, and Blaine, who is a
home ruler and a Catholic of Irish
extraction, is said to have given the
prince his views in a very candid
and uncompromising way. "The
prince remarked after the discussion
had been brought to a close," says
the report, "thnt ho had been greatly impressed with the arguments of
his companion." The story is probably entirely without foundation;
but even if in some respects it bo
true, there is very much reason to
doubt that any such remark ever
esoaped from the lips of the prince.
Probably he knows a good deal
more about the Irish question than
Mr. Blaine, and possibly his opinions on the question were not less
accurate than those of the fire-
cater from Maine.
It is to be hoped a final settlement of the Alaska seal difficulty
will now be reached. Seal taking
on the northern coast has beon, under ordinary circumstances, one of
the most profitable undertakings,
and many of the people of Victoria
have received large incomes from it.
But this industry could not be carried on to advantage under the cir
cumstances which have been existing during the past two seasons.
The losses inflicted upon sealers by
the arbitrary conduct of the American government in making seizures
of vessels found taking animals in
Behring's Sea, and the risks encountered, were such as to make it a
business of great hazard. We
think it is most fortunate that Mr.
Drake was engaged to be present
at the Sitka trials. His presence
had a most wholesome effect, and
showed that the Oanadian government did not propose to allow the
extraordinary action of the U. S.
government to pass without protest.
From the report brought down by
Oapt. Warren, which we publish in
another column, it seems probable
that an understanding has already
been knives]' M rbetween Secretary
Bayard and the British minister at
Washington. But it will not be
sufficient to obtain the release of
the sealing vessels and their crews.
There has been a very heavy loss
inflicted upon these men in const-•
quence of the confiscation of their
property and the interference with
their business, and for this there
should be full compensation made
by the United States. If that government proposes to become the
defender of the Alaska Commercial
Go's, monopoly, it must be prepared
to pay damages when its championship brings it into conflict with tho
interests and rights of other nations.
It has become very apparent that
the feeling in favor of commercial
union with the United States continues to grow in eastern Oanada.
Mr. Grostus Wiman and others
who have taken a deep interest in
the question, have been addressing
a number of very large meetings in
various places, and the sentiment
exhibited at theso meetings, and
the resolutions passed, are unmistakable indications that tho popular
verdict in theso regions would be
largely in favor of commercial union.
There has been hitherto a disposition among Conservative journals to
oppose the movement. This is not
to be wondered at. Conservative
journals have been taught for yean
to say that a very big customs tariff
waa necessary to the commercial
success of tbe Dominion, and it
doubtless seems to them inconsistent
to be advocating commercial union
by which it is proposed to abolish
the customs line between us and the
United States. But all Conservatives do not follow their organs, for
not a few of that party have already
declared for commercial union. There
are not wanting indications of a
change of attitude on the part of
the Conservative party. Sir John
Macdonald is represented in Orlp as
watching intently to see which way
the cat will jump. If he sees that
there is unmistakably a majority of
the electore in favor of the new
scheme, he is too cautions a leader
to oppose it. If other parts of the
Dominion respond with as much
enthusiasm to the new doctrine as
those already canvassed havo dono,
we may be sure that commercial
union will be adopted by one of the
political parties as a war cry. It
seems to us, nevertheless, that there
are many serious obstacles in the
'way, and it is very doubtful if ever
the two nation) shall be able to
agree upon a satisfactory basis of
commercial union.

never could be the kind of professor some
folia are. Now there's Deacon John
Perry; I've known that man ever since
he was ono of the likeliest appearing
young fellows there ever was; but as long
iifjo as when ho was clerk in Mr. Isaac
Strand's drygoods store, they used to say
he had a sly way of measuring cloth bo's
to take more than a thumb's widtli ou

con of the church, I've known for a fact
Hint bis barrels of Baldwin nnd Uusset
apples hnve been nothing but windfalls a

Then there's Mrs. Horner, one of the
lights of Mr. Bristow's church; they sny
her temper is something fearful in her
own house, nnd she never has tho snmo
Hcrvnut girl three months nt n time. As

cross nnd sullen there's no abiding the

accusing fingers at me and say, 'There's
Matilda Ann Hopes, she professes to be n
Christian, hut they sny Ibis nud that of
her, urihirfo.ningand inconsistent in any
one professing tlio name of Christ, and
setting up to he a church member.' Mrs.
Hixon over the way feels just as Ido, and
I believe Mrs. Hixon is one of the Lord's
own, if ever there wus one, and I thank
Cod my salvation doesn't depend on
being a member of the visible church 1"
» '■ »
"Only throe nights ago since I sat in
this very place thanking God like au old
Phnriseo that I was wiser than his professing children, and knew enough to keep
outside of his earthly fold 1 I had hardly
got upstairs, when a messenger came to
i ay that, Mrs. Hixon over tile way wns
rlyirrg, and wanted to have a few words
with nre. Of course I went directly, and
■ I here she wns, taken with a sudden vio-
1 rrit quinsy. The awful pain was gone,
;■ r sir-1 could talk, but whnt with tho ill-
fiirnrimtiori of tlie lungs —they call it
priori nonia nowadays—that she wns just
ivtliirg better of, it wiw too much, and my
excellent neighbor was dying fast. But
to tlie last she was iu dreadful distress
about being outside the jiale of tho visiblo
church. I wouldn't hnvo believed things
could hnve looked to her as they did 1
She said that in marry ways sho bad disobeyed tlie commands of her Lord. Sho
had hidden her light under a bushel, and
never let it shine out to draw others into
tbe church by her influence.
"Thon she had good reason to suppose
that her staying out had kept others from
entering thiit would but for her exnmplo.
And most of nil she realized now that
Jesus Christ had said thnt unless those
believing in his nnine professed Christ on
earth He would not confess them beforo
tlio nngels in henvon. Our pastor, Mr.
Bristow, was iiway, but such a prayer ns
liencon Jolm Perry did make over that
poor troubled woman 1 Ho may have
dono littlo cheating tilings in the past,
but he must be a man who lives near
Cod to make the comforting prayer he
did. And Niu-so Bailev! She just mado
that dear, dying neighbor of mine see
things just us thoy really are. She said
that Christ said we must confess Him beforo men, and although thut meant, of
course, to "profess' also, vet He was of
great mercy, anil swift tn forgive.   Then
sho reminded Mrs. Hixon that she had
never ilenied her Lord, but iu his name
had dono many good works. 'The trouble
is,' Nurse Baifey said, 'you un Mrs. Hopes
hure hnve thought too much of tho dangerous old giant. Thoy sny;' instead of
following a simple'Thus siutli tho Lord,'
and so you have both defrauded yourselves of the protection of tho church,
and ticulocted a Christian's duty.' i
"I dpn't know i wnnt Nurse Bniley's
faults may'bo, but I know sho led one
poor'mistaken sister right up to the cross
in such a way that she felt the neglect of
a lifetime was forgiven through tho
abounding mercy of a crucified Redeemer.
"Mrs. Hixon had no need at tho last to
beg me to como out and own my Lord
before men. If there's been a poor, deluded, yet Christ-loving woman on earth,
Matilda Ann Hopes has been one. But
if I'm alive, and can walk to church next
communion Sabbath, I shall do what I
can to repair my self-inflicted privations.
If I knew any other persons, old or
young, who let the reported defects of
other Christians or any other reason save
lack of love for Christ keep them outside
of tbo visible church, I'd try somehow to
tell them about my neighbor's and my
own miserable mistake."

Examinations »r Candidate!.
THE OPINION 0? MABK HOPKINS.
Tho late Mark Hopkins was the president of the American Board for thirty
years, and always took the greatest interest in its welfare. Only a few days
before his death an article ol his appeared
in "The Independent," advocating the
examination of candidates for the missionary field by councils. In this lie
showed his wisdom, The great question
of probation alter death, which is now
before tho Congregational churches, can
only be settled, if it is ever settled at all,
by a council which will represent the
mind of Congregationalism of that point.
It is useless to go to tho existing creeds,
for the very question at issue is whether
these creeds teach or imply tho doctrine
of n second probation, It would seem to
an outside observer that tho Congregational churches must in some formal way
decide this point. This is all the more
easy, as from the Congregational point of
view a creed is only a consensus of human
opinion, and so may be modified from
time to time.

How te Treat DIMenlUee.
Some one has quaintly said, "When I
am taking my dinner, it I find a bone, I
do not make a fuss about it, or break ray
teeth witii it; I put it on one side of my
plate, and get ou with my moat. But
when people como to feed on God's
Word, and find a bone ol difficulty, they
waste tlieir time ovor it; they get ailgry
over it; they part themselves by wrest-
ling nud struggling with it; and, after all,
go unfed, though there was plenty of
solid and good food close beside the bone,
ready for their nourishing." Even' Sunday School teachers must not wasto too
much time over the "bones of difficulty"
they may discover in tho Word.

Oriata at tha Christian Name, William.
A correspondent in Notes and Queries,
In reference to the Christian name, William, says r—"Most persons, I suppose,
consider this namo to be Norman—VV'il-
helmus or tiulielmus. But I read in an
old magazine the other day a statement
to the effect that It is really of Saxon
birth, and that its origin is as follows:
Whenever a warrior killed a Roman, the
gilded helmet of tho latter was removed
after the battle and placed on the brow
of the victor, who thenceforth was styled
Uildc-holmo, or Gilden-helme. The
French, it is added, corrupted this into
tiiiilheaume."
A Srillioll lllloxl.r.ml.
Their own stimulant, ktiva, tlieycou-
tinuo to use in gi'catquantities.and many
of the Europeans have eontmcted a liking
for it. All tho Wuiinrapans have n taste
of it, and marvel that any whito man can
nquire a penchant for such stuff. Its
flavor resembles soap suds more than nny-
thing else ono cun compare it with. The
root used is botanicnlly known as that of
tho pipor methisticiiin; it is hard and
woody, hence the object of the chewing
which liberates tlie jitiees of the root
more freely than any other process.
Europeans grate tbo root and pound it,
but admit that the liquor is not equal to
the chewed. In Samoa the preparation
of tbe kava bowl is attended with very
great ceremony, only the young unmarried girls being allowed to chew it. The
root is cut up into fine pieces, and tho
girls, who are directed by the prettiest of
them, first rinso their mouths, take up n
piece, und when sufhcientlv musticutcd
nnd formed into a ball, spit it into the
bowl. The chief girl then calls for water, and after washing her hands directs
one of her companions to pour on the
water while she stirs tho root with her
hand. When enough water is in, and
tho balls are properly mixed witii the in-
gredient, sho takes up a strainer made of
bora of the hibiscus, and passes it from
side to side of tho bowl. When tho
strainer is saturated she liftsit high above
the howl and squeezes the balls through
the strainer in her hand. This is continued until the kava bowl is ready. It
is contended by some of the Europeans
who use chewed root that the mastication
is perfectly dry and is a mere crushing
process. The medicinal properties of
kava are tonic and nervous sedative, and
it is to these effects, and not to its flavor,
that the taste for the drink arises.
Melbourne (Australia) Leader.
Michigan Temperance Law.
The temperance law, recently enacted
in Michigan, provides, in its local option
clause, that when one-fifth of the legal
voters in any county shall petition the
supervisors that a voto may be taken on
tbo question of prohibition, it shall be
the duty of such supervisors within ten
days thereafter to hold an election for
this purpose, nnd thnt if a majority of the
legal voters shall voto for prohibition,
then no intoxicating liquors shall thereafter be sold within tho limits ofthe
county, except forthe purposes expressly
stated. Such an election may be held
onco in every three years. In any county
in which prohibition is adopted the tax
law nnd the regulation law of the state in
respect to the sale of intoxicating liquors
are suspended, while remaining in force
elsewhere. This gives to the people ol
each county the power to determine for
themselves whether intoxicating liquors
shall bo sold therin or not; and if they
determine thnt these liquors shall not be
sold, then they will undoubtedly see to it
that prohibition is enforced by the local
agencies existing in the county. Public
sentiment will be very sure to secure this
result. Local option in some of the
Southern states has been a grand success;
and wo can* see no reason why it will
not work ns well in the Northern and
Western states. It is certainly ono modo,
and that too a very effective one, of attacking and breaking down of the mm
power.—Independent.
Carrying   Hla   Illustration   Farther
Than Intended.
Writing of tho late Hon. Henry B.
Stanton, his wife, Mrs. Elizabeth Cady
Stanton, gives the following incident in
connection with one of his temperanco
addresses:
"When speaking beforo an audience,
hu wuu very ouiok to turn to oooount any
unexpected occurrence. On one occasion
ho was delivering a temperanco lecture
on a platform covered by a thick oilcloth
thut protruded two or three Inches over
the edge of tho boards in front. In tho
midst of one of his most eloquent passages he was comparing the inebriate's
downward course to the falls of Niagara,
and the strugglo with drink to the hopeless efforts of a man in the rapids. Just
as he reached, in his description, the fatal
plunge over the precipice, he advanced
to the edge of tlie platform, the oilcloth
fnvo way under his feet, and in an instant
ro went down headlong into the audience, carrying with him desk, glass,
pitcher and water. Being light and agile,
no was quickly on the platform again,
and immediately remarked with great
coolness; 'I carried my illustration farther than I intended to. Yet even so it
is that the drunkard falls, glass in hand,
carrying destruction with him. Bnt not
so rcnuilv does he riso again from the
terrible depths into which no lias precipitated himself.' The whole house cheered
again and again, and even Cough never
struck a more powerful blow for temperance.
"Better Take a Sheep Too."
A valued friend and ablo farmer, about
the time tho temperanco reform was] beginning to exert a healthful influence,
said to his nowly hired man:
"Jonathan, I did not think to mention
to yon when I hired you, that I shall try
to havo my work done this year without
rum. How much must I give you to do
without?"
"Oh," said Jonathan, "I don't care
much about it; you may give me what
you please."
"Well, said the farmer, "I will give
you a sheep in the fall if you do without
rum."
"Agreed."
"Father, will you give me a sheep too,
if Ido without rum?" then asked the
elder son,
"Yes, you shall have a sheep If you do
without.''
The youngest son then said: "Father,
will you give me a sheep If I will do
without?"
"Yes, Chandler, you shall have asheep,
also."
Presently Chandler speaks .again:
"Father, hadn't you better take a sheep,
too?"
Tbo farmer shook his.head; he hardly
thought that he could give up the' stimulant, but the appeal came from a source
not easily to be disregarded; and the result was, the demon rum was thenceforth
banished from tho premises, to the great
joy and ultimate liapplness of all concerned,

Thrashed His Wife.—Jaok Connors, a very ropulsivo looking individual, appeared boforo the polico
magistrate this morning charged with
having assaulted his wifo Annie, un
Indian woman. Annio is a most ro-
jspcctahlo looking native and is known
to ho a hard working honest woman. It
appears Connors got drunk and running short of cash went to Annie and
demanded more. Annio declared sho
had no monoy, where upon Oonnors
knocked her down kicked her about
the body and finally threatened to use
a hatchet on her. Connors pleaded
guilty to the charge, and, as Annie did
not press for punishment and ho promts-
not to misbehave again, the magistrate inflicted a fino of $5 und costs
and required him to find two sureties
in 8100 each for his future observnnco
of the peace.

Shot at the Wiiokq Bhid.—The
habit of allowing every boy, who is
strong enough, to carry a gun, is a
dangerous practice, and, as is well
known, frequently leads to sad accidents. Yestorday afternoon, Mr. Jas.
M. Kennedy, a peaceful and law-
abiding typo, in the employ of the
Columbian, went out for his usual
Sunday walk. When a little distance
from tho city lie waa rather taken
aback to find that some ardent sports
were filling his clothes with bran new
duck shot, using a single barreled
breechloader to do the work. Mr.
Kennedy remonstrated quietly with
the sportsmen, who seeing tho typo
was not a bird of paradise, as thoy at
first supposed, desisted from their efforts. Luckily for Mr. Kennedy he
served his apprenticeship in a westorn
office which accounts for not more than
two or three of the shot penetrating
further than his innermost garments.
Funny as'this may seem, the consequences might have beon serious, nnd
the next time Masters Arthur Pitton-
drigh nnd Willie Jackson find it necessary to go shooting on a Sunday they
had hotter tako tho country for it.

The Tog o War*
On Saturday afternoon a large and
enthusiastic crowd assembled at Hastings to witness the tug of war between
Geo. Blaok's Westminster team and
Jack Levy's Vancouver team. It was
generally expected the terminus team
would carry off the honors as they had
spent more time in practice and wero
on the whole a hoavier sot of men.
But the fact that the Westminster
team could pull like young steers, oven
without practice, wss evidently overlooked by the majority of the audience
who, with undying confidence in everything connected with the terminal city,
staked and lost their money on that
team. The Iplayers were composed as
follows:
New Westminster—Block (captain),
J. Grant, J. Watson, D. S. MoCloud,
Thos. Allen, Geo. Gilloy, Jno. Smith,
H. Morrison, Jas. Brenter (Anohor),
McMnron, J. Murray.
Vancouver—J. Shoutdicel(captain),
J. MoKinn, (anohor), H.Fife,T. Linn,
T. Kelly, 0. Ban, W. Blackinore, W.
Murray, G. Mathison, G. W. Armstrong, A. E. Storey.
When the men got down to work it
soon became evident that though Vancouver played a strong game, Westminster held tho winning hand. Tho
pull was a hard one, but at the end of
2 min. 50 sec. Levy's heavy weights
were found too light for the job thoy
tackled and were pulled over the line
in good style by their opponents. The
second trial was terminated in two
minutes, the Westminster boys again
dragging Vancouver over tho lino.
After the contest Mr. Black entertained the team in his usual hospital manner.

Hot Spring Babbles.
A very interesting; joej^mony took
placo' nt HarriBon Hot' Springs on
Thursday, it being tho occasion of placing tiio cornor post in tiio foundation
of Senator. Schultz's new rosidonco
thore. Thero wero present on tho occasion Lieut. Govornor and Mrs. Nolson, Senator Schultz, Hon. Dr. Bown,
Sheriff Armstrong, Captain .Powers,
and some others of tho guests at the
St. Alico Hotel. Aftor short speeches
by the Govornor, Senator Schultz and
others, Mjb. Nelson came forward and
in a few clear and well choBen wordB
wished tho Senator and Mrs. Schultz
long lifo and health to enjoy their residence in tiro now abode, and breaking
a botllo of wino over llie timbor
ohristendfl tho location with tiro appropriate title of "The Maples." Tho
Maples is a lovely bil of property,
comprising about one acre in all, sloping gently towards the shoro of tho
lake, and covered with very large and
tine specimens of the trees from whioh
it derives its name. Tho Senator is to
bo congratulated on the possossion of
ono of tho choicest Bpots on the Hot
Springs property. Uuildingoperations
are to bo proceeded with at onco, and
already a largo quantity of the. necessary lumber is on the ground. The
residence will probably be comploted
nnd ready for occupation early in the
coming spring!
Lady Maodonald and Mias Macpherson and party are stopping for a short
time at the Springs. They are delighted with the scenery and muoh
pleased with the hotel. Lady Mac
donald says that the waters are superior in some respects to those" of Banff,
and her neice who had been suffering
from rheumatism was entirely cured
by one bath. It ia tho intention of
Hor Ladyship to spend a portion of the

An Interesting Budget.
Mr. MelSab, Wineries Inspector far Ike
Northern Coast, Wives an Interest*
lug Account or Const Doings*
Mr. Jolm McN&b, Inspector of Fisheries for the northern coast, returned
last week from the Skeena River, having finished his duties for this season.
He found the cannors and fishermen
willing to comply with the new fisheries regulations, and experienced no
trouble in collecting the $5 license now
imposed or. each boat used for netting
salmon. The pack on tho Skeena
Rivor this season nmounts to 60,000
cases, which is considerably in excess
of laat year. The salmon run on the
Skeena was exceptionally good • and
every cannery,|has .packed more than
waa anticipated. On the Nans River
no canning was done this season, but
a large pack of salted salmon was
made, one firm alone putting un 1300
barrels.-  A guntlemcm named McLon-
nan haa purchased the Naas Harbor
cannery and is having it refitted for
operations next yoar. Tho run on
Rivers Inlet was a failure. Shotbolt
prepared to put up 20,000 cases but
did not pack ovor 7,000; Cowan, Shaw
& Co. prepared to pack 1B,U00 cases,
but barely reached 5,000 casus. A little salting was also done on the Inlet,
but tho run being bo poor the number of
barrels put up was very much less than
at first expected. The Alert Bay cannery put up 4,500 cases, which though
a small pack, carries more profit with
it than any of the other larger ones.
The entire catch was made by 9 Indians with two seines, which they
worked from either shoro of the little
river where the fish are caught. Towards the latter part of the season the
Indians along the Skeena became
restless over the exodus of a number
of their brethren to Aluska with Duncan to form the New Metlakahtla. In
consequence nf this labor became
scarce and packers were slightly hampered in their operations, but luckily
the run was nearly over and no one
suffered severely. Metlakahtla is now
almost deserted; the doors and windows havo been taken'from most of.
the houses, while in some cases entiro
buildings have been pulled down and
carried away to the new village. The
general opinion along the const is that
Duncan is loading the Indians into a
lot of trouble, and that the new village will not prove a lasting success.
Having become American Indians,
thoy have no lunger a right to hunt
and fish in their old grouuds along the
Skeena, which aro by long odds the
best on the coast. Whon the time
eamo for thu villagers to pack up and
leave many hesitated, but having promised Mr. Duncan to go where ho
went, thoy finally wero persuaded to
join with tlie majority. The Indians
value the Ouluchau fishing grounds at
tho head of Naas River moro highly
than anything else, and imagine they
will still have the privilege of fishing
there in the future ns they have done
in the past. It is understood the Jaw
against foreign Indians lining in Canadian waters will be strictly enforced
hereafter, which, if so done, will have
the effect of inducing many of tho Indians to return again to their old
homo, as without the Ooloclinns thoy
would lose their chief means of subsistence. An unusually largo quantity of Oolachan oil was secured this
season. The IndianB were very successful in their hunting expeditions
last winter; game of all kinds was
very plentiful and more especially bear
nnd deer. The Indians along tlio
Naas and Skeena Rivers' complain bitterly at the government allowing the
Alaska natives to participate in tlie
Naas River fisheries; -they come down
in March, when the Oolachnns commence running, and carry away great
quantities of oil with them. The gov-
era vent Vill be asked to put a stop to
any foreign Indians fishing ih these
waters for the future.
Orion Catlin, 49 Pearl Street, Buffolo,
N. H., says: "I tried various remedies
for tbo piles, but found no relief until I
used Dr. Thonuw' Koleotrie Oil, which
entirely, cured me .after pt few,,applications." . Since Dr. Thornus'^cUctue Oil
has become celebrated, unprincipled per*
sons are imitating it.   Get the genuine.

Advertising the Exhibition.
In your lust issue oi thoWKBKLV
Columbian there appoars au article reproving tho managers ol tho British
Columbia Agricultural Association for
not getting the pamphlets out sooner
and also that the agricultural exhibition had not been properly advertised,
and in justice to myself as secretary I
beg to make a few statements.'
The idea of sumo of tho directors was
if the pamphlets wero circulated two
or three months previous to the exhibition that the pamphlets would bo laid
nsido and when they were wanted not
half of them could bo found. Tho
association had 1500 pamphlets printed
and all have been circulated over tlie
province with the exception of 150,
which are required for use at the exhi
bition. Ou August 23rd tho directors
were supplied with a few copies each,
which took all of tho number sent me
by the printer. On August 30th I
mailed 300 copies of the pamphlets to
parties in Victoria whose advertisements appear in tho pamphlet, and
Victoria lias boon supplied with of at
least one-fourth of the pamphlets. 120
posters have been sent to the different
places in the province, and alio since
Aug. Uth notices have appeared in
the Columbian, and Victoria "Times
announcing the time and place thst
the exhibition would bo held. Now,
Mr. Editor, it seems to mo that evory
means has been used to properly advertise the exhibition, and judging from
tha previous provincial exhibitions I
think we have not .been so negligent
after all, and surely one month is quite
sufficient time for the notices to appear.
Yours, oto.,
Geo. W. Chadsbv,
Scc'yB.C.A.A.
Sumas, Sept. 111.:
[The remarks mado by tho Columbian referred tb certain statements
which appeared in llie Victoria Timo.
We repeat the opinion thst the exhibition printed matter should have boon
sooner issued, and that at least double
the number of potters should have
been printed. Al a rule it takes from
75 to 100 posters to „" do " this city
alone, end ISO for the whole provinco
is manifestly far too few.—En.]
