Ijast yoar quite a noted couple—
names old and distinguishud in
New York and Virginia — were
married out of doom in June, and
since then the fashion has greatly
grown in popularity, so that half of
the weddings this month will be solemnized under the blue sky and
amidst the rows. At these sylvan
marriages the bridesmaids wear short
gowns of lace or net ,a*j*j (tktfl Hfr'
white Leghorn hats either loaded
with curling plumes or wreathed
with flowers. They carry on "their
arms pretty white and gold baskets
tied with floating ribbons and filled
With natural blossoms to match the
flowers that wreath thoir hats. One
of the prettiest weddings of the season will be that now io process of
planning for a well-known New
York girl who is to be married next
week. It is to be a Directory wedding and will take plaoe on a wide
shady lawn, the ceremony being performed in front of a trellis covered
with June roses. The bride wears
a Directory dfesi of soft ln\riwii.ivAp
in, embroidered with pearls, and
with a lace veil that is an heir-loom
in the family. Her slippers are the
white satin heelless affairs, bound
over the inslep with ribbons, such
as our grandmothers wore, and long,
loose, white gloves are wrinkled up
to the shouldor. There are six
bridesmaids all in white and gold,
their Pireotoiro gowns of white China silk and drape being embroidered
in gold thread. Big Directoiro bon-
nets.with bunoheaof wadding pluir«
and wide ribbons tied under the
chin, make these six fair maids so
beautiful that it is fatally certain
that in no time at all they will be
six fair wivei. The big white and
gold baskets, carried on their loosely-gloved, arms, are to be running
over with daisies and buttercups';
and in the other hrr nil thoy are to
carry gold-mouthed lorgnettes, the
gift of the bride, and made in
copy of the old-fashioned quizzing
glass of tbe last oentury. It is needless to say that the amateur photographer will be on hand and the
lovely picture will be perpetuated
io black and white, whioh, after all,
can give but a faint idea of the
charms of its baok ground of June
sky and sunshine and roses.—N. V.

head office, Canadian 1'aalno Telegraph,
noticed a blaze ou tho switchboard. Before lur could givo an alarm the tiro assumed big proportions, hut waa soon

destroyed. Gen. Manager Hosmer was
on hand and with his accustomed energy
had repairing under woy and in a few
hours tbe wires woro working O. K.

The "Town Major's** Ireaeh
Editor Columbian.--Following so
closely upon his strenuous objections to
certain strictures lately uttered by Chief
Justice Sir Mathew Begbie upon the.
journalism of the day, it is strange that
the editor of the Victoria Times should
not, out of regard for consistency, if not
of decency, have excluded from his columns the wantonly and brutally insulting
correspondence of "Town Major" .that
appears in his issue of the 21st inst., and
the publication of which tully justifies,
so far u they relate to the Victoria
Times, the caustic remarks of the Chief
Justice, For downright atrocity of
blackguardism the production of the
Times' military correspondent hu scarcely a parallel known to Westminster peoplo; and in itself gives ample proof that, i
whether Major or Minor, the writer of
this coarse and gratuitous insult toon
honorable citizen whom his fellow-citizens delight to honor, must carry under
his uniform, when he sports It—oye,
even into the presence of royalty and ot i
womanhood--the heart and sonl of a
hoodlum.   Yours truly,      Civilian.

In the Columbian, elsewhere,'
will be found two advertisements'
over the signature of 0. Warwick,
government agent at this city, calling for tenders, respectively, for the
construction of a public school house
at Sapperton and an addition tothe
'public school building :ln this city.
Plans, iS,*c, can be seen at the government office here, and the time for
recerTlnJ-tenderB-is up to noon of
next Saturday, June 30. We are
glad that the government are pushing the construction of these needed
buildings so as to have them coin
pleted before another winter season
sets in. The school house at Sapperton will be' a great convenience
to that thriving neighborhood, and
we are told that over forty ohildren
will take advantage of the accommodation thus furnished. With the
addition to the school building in
this city, which, we believe, amounts
to duplicating the present capacity,
and the withdrawal of the .Sapperton scholars to thoir own school
house, the accommodation here will
be ample and good for some time at
least.
In another column "Civilian"
takes the redoubtable but unsavory
"Town Major" of the Victoria
Times to task for perpetrating a
most uncalled for,, semi-blasphemous
and insulting half column of cheap
burlesque on a social gathering held
recently in this eity at.the mayor's
residence. This " Town Major " of
the Times has been in the habit of
taking a good deal of liberty in an
irresponsible sort of way. It is
quite a "trick" in journalism which
the Times has adopted, but our
cotemporary's alleged military scribe
does no honor to the profession of
arms. He strikes in the dark end
at the backs of the victims whom he
has spotted, muoh more like a sneak
assassin than a soldier. He smells
of the etable, too, and is altogether a
sorry specimen, to judge him by his
effusions, of a retired veteran, except in stateness. We strongly suspect that if the "Major" ever did
enjoy the title, he has long since
been degraded to the ranks for un-
derhandedness and general breach of
decency. The valiant "Major,"
irresponsible as he is, would not have
been suffered, we venture to say, by
his masters, for fear of a horse-whipping, to perpetrate nearer home what
he has been guilty of w.ith respect to
a social event-in this city. The
" Town Major," as the Times stated
in a lending article recently, for the
information of the Colonist, is a
"free lance." But if he were a
Cossack or a Bashi-Buzouk, he must
learn to resist the no doubt to him
almost irresistible temptation of
making sacriligious and vulgar incursions on what should be considered forbidden ground.
tions, bo they judges, members of
parliament or anyone else. The
minister of justice should take a few
lessons iu tho principles of public
liberty,from Judge- McDonald, lt
is eminently proper that duo respect
should be paid to persons holding
judicial positions, but Mr. Thompson's doctrine that the conduct of a
judgo must not be freely criticized
lest the usefulness of such judge muy
be impaired, is the acme of absurdity. The judge who does his duty
fearlessly and conscientiously has
nothing to fear from newspaper
criticisms.. 'Che .press will always
be ready to uphold and commend
auch a judge, and the journalist who
assails a member of tho judiciary
without cause will get no sympathy.
But to say that the newspaper
writer who points out what he perceives to bo wrong in the acts and
decisions of a judge ought to
be sent to prison for contempt
by the very judge whom he has attacked, is a relic of barbarism. It
is a survival of those times when
men were sometimes condemned to
sutler death " without tho benefit of
clergy."
We have been uked several times
lately about the Southern railway
scheme—how it was getting on, etc.
Those who have the business in
hand, for reasons best known to
themselves—presumably good reasons—are keeping the matter very
dark, so that we are unable at present to state anything definite. It is
supposed that the charter-holders
are doing all in their power to facilitate the business of getting the railway under contract. Such negotia
tions take time, especially when
then are various interests whioh
come in contact, and are sure to
cause a little friction. This is a
matter, however, in whioh every
citizen has a deep interest, and
the city's stewards, who hold i the
charter and are conducting the negotiations, shonld, and we suppose do,
recognise and acknowledge their
responsibility to their principals.
The eity trill have to "pay the
piper "in any event, and too muoh
care cannot be exercised in making
a satisfactory bargain. Composed
as it is of prominent and representative citisens, the Westminster-
Southern Bailway Oompany should
be eminently fitted, both as regards
ability and willlngneutolookafterour
interests in this matter, but at the
same time no citizen should for a
moment relax his vigilance and concern until the iron horse, direct from
San Francisoo and Paget Sound
ports, rashes, panting, but triumphant, across the noble Fraser, bringing to us the tropical fruits of California, as well as the " Hush " and
blooming tourist of the Pacifio slope,
and earning away our lumber, minerals fish, and other products
whioh oar brethren to the south of
as might require.
In a recent address to the grand
jury of the united counties of Leeds
and Granville County Judge McDonald made some exceedingly sensible and timely remarks concerning
the rights ofthe preu to comment
upon judicial proceedings. Speaking of the i amendments recently
made to the law ot libel he defended
the liberty of the preu and said that
while those who control it must not
take advantage of their position to
gratify personal spite,, the fullest
liberty should be given to deal with
the publio acts of public men. The
preu had a right, he said, to fairly
criticize those holding publio poai-
Our cotemporary of the Vancouver IVeios very kindly goes out of its
way to   show   us the   reasonableness of its hope that the population
of Vancouver will reach 20,000 before next midsummer.   It says the
official report of the assessor showed
at the end of last year a population
of  6,085,   and    adds  that   since
that time there has been an increase  of two or three thousand,
bringing the population at present
up to 8,000 or 9,000.   The increase,
since the official census of course,
rests on our cotemporary's statement,
and may or may not bo correct, according to our cotemporary's facilities for forming an accurate estimate.
We hope our cotemporary is not
counting on tho 5,000 Indians who
aro at present having a skukum picnic on the shores of the inlet near
tbe " salt water terminus," nor the
700 Ohinese noses which arrived on
the good ship Zambesi several weeks
ago.   There aro some points in the
article we have referred to which
the people of this city will do well
to note and act upon.    In estimating the increase in the population of
Vancouver for the ensuing year the
News counts upon the development
of the seal and deep sea fisheries, on
the   establishment   of   satisfactory
communication with the large farming districts at the  mouth  of the
Fraser, and also on a large increase
of   manufactures,  including   three
smelting works for gold, silver, and
iron.   The News and Vancouver nre
certainly alive as to the best means
to the end—a prosperous and progressive  town.    Our  cotemporary
says in tbe course of hia remarks:
" Many people forget that the condition of affairs in Vancouver is very
different from the state of tilings
which exist in the older cities of the
province."    We do not forget it,
and we heartily endorse the statement; but, at the same time, we
would   remind   our   Westminster
readers that if we do not improve
our advantages, we cannot expect to
advance by virtue of their mere possession.   The outlook for a large and
speedy increase in the population of
the mainland cities, at least, should
aet as an incentive and encouragement   to  producers  of   all   sorts
throughout the province, and especially those of Westminster district.
"It Saved My Life"
Is a common expression, often heard
from tlioso -who have realized, hy personal use, the curative powers pf Ayer's
Cherry Pectoral.-! ** I cannotsay enough
in praise of Ayor's Cherry Pectoral, ho-
listing as I do that, hut tor its use, I
should long since have died from lnng
trouhles.—E. Bragdou, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
hy a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of Bleep ana rest. I had used various cough halsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A Mend ad-
vised me to try
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am hapny to say that it
helped ue at onoe. By continued uo
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. E.
Cuban., 18 Second Bt., Lowell, Mass.
X have used Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
for over a year, aud sincerely believe I
should havo been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. It has cured
me of a dangerous affection of the lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
-finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Provinco of Ontario.
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral saved my life.
Two years ago I took a very severe Cold
which settled on my lungs. I consulted
physicians, and took tho remedies they
prescribed, but failed tb obtain relief
until I began using Ayer's Cherry Pectoral. Two bottles of this medicine
completely restored my health.—Iiule

r Ta Paris towards the end oftho reign
of Louis XIV, iu a space of about four
mouths, not less than twenty-six youug
men disappeared. They wero all between
seventeen and twenty-six years of age.
■ The intelligent multitude immediately
got up a story that an illustrious princess,
then of mattire years, aud suffering from
a painful, complaint, resorted, as a desperate remedy, to -baths of human Wood.
Riots wero the consequence; a few of
the ringleaders were hanged, bnt the dis-
. appearances continued, aud the "lien-
tenant de police," the celebrated Iia Reg*
ole, was finally threatened with a lettre
de cachet and the Bastille lf the myitery
were not forthwith cleared.
' Among his detectives ho had a very
sharp fellow whose name has beeu immortalized byEmile Gaboriau-— one Lecoq.
This Lecoq was promised a high reward
if ho cleared the matter up, aud under the
double stimulus of gain and professional
amour proprc, he set to work in right
uiimeBt.   " ■-*■
Lecoq had a hoy of about sixteon.whom
he had brought up to the same business
as himself—a tall, broad-shouldered,
handsome youth, looking older than his
years. He dressfd him up iu fashionable
clothes, supplied hiin plentifully with
money, and directed him to mix freely
with what is now called Ic monde, ou I'on
tt'amuse, aud the wholo detective staff was
set to watch his movements.
• One fine afternoon the decoy, lounging
along the terrace of the Tuileries, Was
engaged in conversation by a young person of surpassing beauty, accompanied by
an elderly woman of decent np pen mi me.
The youth wsb t»Ul the young lady was"-a'
Polish princess, &?., and, to make a long
story short, a meeting was arranged for
thefollowingeve'nli'g.. .
ft The old woman whs to meet the youth
at a church near thu Louvre, aud conduct
Ulm to the trysting place.
.* '* Lecoq, duly apprlsiid pf tlii*-*, was in at-
K tendance with a large bu'ly'or' well-armed
I policemen, and followed his sou and
guide to a house of splendid appearance in
the Quartler St. Anioine.
i It had been previously arranged with
j| the youth that be t-hould take au early
,£ opportunity of slipjiin^' handcuffs on the
| "Polish princes*?," n:id then give admission to his father nnd M-i 'mud. However,,
the youth, with characteristic foolhardi-
ness, didnoti cany out tho plan. Either
ho had one of his own, nr -jlse he wan not
insensible to the i'lf.t'.i.-nce of beauty and
wine, andthou{ru»* pu.-ssiWy; that it would
be much nicer to 1>j a Polish prince than
a tipstaff at tho Cljatelcfc.
■ft-In short, he suppf**** very merrily, and
forgot aU about Lecoq senior and his fol
lowers waiting outsldt', Presently, how-
over, the princess roso'froui the table and
withdrew a few in imeiits.
V.Tlie youth's sus; j Ions revived"; he trie'd
the door, but foiuul iii locked*,, then tried
0another; ltwas locket, loo; ho forced it

of a cupboard, aud there, neatly arranged
on silver platters, wore twenty-six human
jheads, embalmed liy mnmoiftiysterioun

It is probable tint t young Lecoq's would
have speedily formed au addition to this
irrim collection lind not Ms. father at that
>tiry moment broken into the house. *- i
5( The Polish princess was found to bo la
league with a chosen baud, of cutthroats.
They sold the bodies of tlio kidnapped
youths to medical students, i-r.d the heads
were dispatched to Germany, where

UT. HOOD'S CHANGING SPLENDORS,
'he Character and Varloty of Expression In That Heaven-Climbing Peak. ,.|
Mount Hood, besides having various
dements of grandeur its of altitude, con-
'our,etc.,boasts of ond remarkable attribute whioh few great "snow epaei"
■C-ioBsess. It rarely presents justthesame
Appearance every time oue takes a look at
, ihe old peak. ■
I One writer in describing some of tho
'•-brent snow mountains of Switzerland,-
1 uakes use of "changing splendors." That
'■xpresston applies with equal felicity to
ount Hood. Thero .id more character
fcnd variety of expression to the mountain than that of any snow peak on the
hole Pacific ooast Z *."**■ : '*'■ • •
Atmospheric conditions, state of tlie
weather, aud the appearance of the sky
,11 contribute to these varying aspects of
~ie snow-crested monarch. Even tbe
.(seasons, and tho change of the landscape
Jnround the baso ot the mountain, have
£uch to do in producing the flitting
...oods and humors as shadowed forth by
I   the different appearances.    Those who
nlookedat Mount Hood Wednesday after-
Itiioon saw it assume a new phase.   Extending from tho base to nearly the sum-
holt was a dense cloud.   The cloud com-
uiletely enveloped tho lower part of the
_*euk, and, though soft and hazy-like, wm
{[perfectlyopaque.    •   C  r ■v-"t.*-*|
''.'■ Down near tho baso it presented a dark
j blue color; a littlo higher the hue shaded;
i'the point off Into a bronze purple; from
-.midway np to where tho cloud ended
Aibruptly the filmy veil was of a pale rosy
iJLtlnt,        -i* -*.-- - * ■•     i •*•*■■
' But the glory of tho whole scene was
ithe summit of the peak. Probably about
[one-tenth of the mountain waa' Unobserved, and this was the very tip, Ou that
portion the sun ahotte with undlmtned
iiplendor, lighting lt up with a brilliancy
iwhich was painful to tbe eye.
., It glowed liko burnished copper for a
-.moment, aud theu changed to a ghostly
(whitenessj so that one really fancied he
toiild discern the snowy crystals.
Looking at the grand old mountain, the

A fiirhvho is partaking of the laat meal
she is to eat in her father's house previous
to her marriage sits at the table'with her
parents and brothers; but she must eat
no moro than half the bowl of rice set before ber, else h£r departure will be followed by continual scarcity In the domicile she is leaving.
. If a bride breaks the heel of her shoe in
going from Iter fatlu-r'n to ber -husband's
house, it Is ominous of unbnjtptness iu her
new relations.
A piece of bacon and a parcel of sugar
are hung on the back of a bride's sedan
chair as a sop to tho deinous who might
molest her while on her journey. The
"Three Baneful Ones" are fond Of aaltand
apices,' and the "White Tiger" likes
sweets.
A bride may be brought home while a
cofllnisin her husband's, house, but.not
within 100 days after a cofliii is carried
out. Domestic troubles'are sure to como
upon one who is married within 100 days
after a funeral.
A brido whilo putting on her wedding
garments stands in a nmnd.-shaliow basket. This conduces to her leading a
placid, well-rounded lifo in lur future
home. After her departure from her
father's door her mother puts the basket
over the mouth of tho oxen to stop tho
mouths of all who would mako adverse
comment on her daughter, and then sits
down before the kitchen range, that her
peace and leisure may be duplicated in
her daughter's life.
A brido must not four months after her
marriage enter any house in which thMe
has recently been a death or a birth, ior
if Bhe does there will surely be a quarrel
between her and the groom. If a young*
mother goes to.see a bride the visitor is
looked npon as tlie cause of any calamity
that may follow.—Popular Science.
Tho Dominie Tuts It Right.
Not long since a skeptical editor in one
of our Southern cities commented with
considerable severity upon the drinking
habits of society, and said that he had
heard of no preacher iu that city who had
remonstrated against ihem.
Soon after a Baptist preacher of the city
entered the editor's office and aaid:
"Mr. M., I recently preached a atnnon
which especially dealt with the drinking
habits of our people, and earnestly remonstrated against them."
"Ah, indeed!" said the editor, adding,
"Weil, but you know I said I had not
hoard of anything of the sort.'1'
Tho preacher had never aeen the editor
at church, eo he told the follo**|4ng:
"A gentleman who had spent much
timo in India, and who was not fawoblo
to Christian missions, once said in aCon-
Hiilerable company, 'I wan In India for
years and never saw a single Christian.'
Another gentleman present aeked* the
travolor, 'How dldyou spend yoWf timo;
iu iiuliii?' 'Hunting tigers,'wm the reply.
>Did you soo any tigers?' 'Yes, plenty-of
them.'. 'Well,' rejelucd the gentleman, 'I
Fpt nt some years in India, too, and I was
1 hunting Christiana. I found a good many
Christians and never saw a single tiger.*"

Complaints are frequently made by
loggers Irom the northern coast that
the Indiana have lately taken to firing
timber limits for the purpose of driving
the loggers away. Several of the beat
limita on the coast were fired thia
spring, but heavy rains extinguished
the conflagration before muoh damage
wai done, lt il suggested that the
government keep a patrol along the
coast to watoh these Indiana. A few
item examples would hnve the effect
of putting an end to these occurrences
ana thus save to the country many
millions of dollars worth of valuablo
timber. .

Our correspondent sends us tho following: "Friday, the 22nd, a shooting
expedition started from tho Travellers'
Home hotel, Murruyvillo. As gunners, drum-majors, ministers of war,
and aide-do-oumpa are the order of
buiineaa in that locality, certainly this
party must come undor the snme hoad-
ing; but, Mr. Editor, none uf this
party were feeble, nor did they retreat,
nor were there any dead, missing or

by General Lannon, Sergeant Cameron, Lieutenant Murray, Ensign Thomson, and a regular, They marched to

The Bleks-aawycr Minstrels.
That minstrelsy still maintains a
strong hold on the public was clearly
proven by the immense houses that
witnessed both performances of Hicks
& Sawyer's Minstrels yesterday. The
entertainment is etriotly of a refined,
pleasing, meritorious description, The
highly talented comedians propound
jokes of a now and laughable order.
The singing calls forth particularly
favorable mention, the voices being
fresh, clear and strong. Jackson, the
tenor, possesses a voico of remarkable
sweetness. Cicero Reed, iu grotesque
dancing and acrobatio fonts, caused
muoh laughter and applause. The
Zouavo drill was particularly well executed, and the vocal toxtette haa all
the charm of tho quaint, weird singing
of tho negro race, and has never been
surpassed by any of the colored troops
that have been hore. Billy Reynolds,
in his sketch of a charcoal vender,
created a sensation by his local topics
of the day. Tho dancing was finely
executed and tho music catchy, popular and well rendered. The mirth-
provoking afterpiece, "The Black villa
Duel," is alone worth double tho price
of admission, and a guaranteed cure
for blues.—Cincinnati Inquirer.

fund to make a collection of the vegetables, horticultural and mineral produots
of British Columbia, for an exhibit at the
Toronto Exhibition in September next.
It is thu intention to mako it as com-
This will be the best advertising medium to bring our vast mineral and farming wealth before the emigrant and capitalist. To further this object and to
make the collection as thorough and complete as possible, I would respeotfully
ask farmers and mine owners to send to
my addreaB by express, mail or other convenient conveyance, vegetables, cereals,
fruits and mineral specimens. The quantity of field products (of one kind) need
not be large, but should be choice specimens; (mineral) not too large; give name
of location, width and depth of vein, assays (if any) and such other particulars
aud description as will be of interest,
should accompany tbem.
Please give this matter your earnest
and immediate attention, and do all In
your power to assist the noble object.
D. OrrENllKluur,
Mayor.
l'.S.- -■ Arrangements are perfected that
after the closo of the fall exhibitions in
Ontario a representative collection from
the various exhibits will be placed In an
exhibition car and sent through the Dominion and the United States.
Tke Purllart arrives.
Tho ship Puritan arrived in port at
8 o'olock on Saturday evening from
San Diego, Cal,, light, to load lumber
and piles for Mexioo. After leaving
San Diego the Puritan met with a
norwesterly wind which lasted for two
days after which a dead calm set in and
lasted 8 days. On the 10th day out
the vessel waa two degrees southwest
of San Diego, more distant from her
destination than on tha day of sailing,
Ou the 10th day out a fine lou'-wester-
ly breeze came up aud the Puritan
apred every inch of oanval and fairly
flew before it, reaching port in just 16
days from date of nulling. At Port
Townaend ihe waa taken in tow by an
American tug and brought to the
mouth of the Frasor. Hera the atri.
Bus and Belle were in waiting, and,
piloted by Capta, Grant, Robinson and
Johnston, ihe was safely docked at
Webster's wharf about 8 p.m.
The Puritan is almost new, and was
built at Port Madison on Puget Sound.
She was built expressly for the lumber
trade and has every convenience and
apparatus for rapid loading and discharging of cargo. Her length is 100
overall, 40 foot beam and draft.loaded,
lOifeet. Shell a fonrmosted foro-
and-after and has a carrying capaoity
of 1,000,000 feet. Owing to the peculiar construction of the Puritan she
requires nn ballast, whieh moans a
great aaving both in time and money.
Oapt. E. Hendrix command! thll fine
vessel. The necessary preparation!
for taking in enrgo woro mado to-day
and loading will commence to-morrow,

H. B. W. Aikman, of the Dominion
Land Board, has reoeived the plans
and specifications for tho bnildingi and
burns to bo erected in connection with
tho experimental farm at Aganiz. The
designs, though substantial in overy
instance, nro not attractive, ttnd no attempt at adornment is mnde on any of
the buildings. The superintendent's
residence Is a large two-story building,
built of wood with stone foundation.
Tho ground floor contains a large vestibule, hall, parlor, dining room, library, oflice, kitchen, wasbhouse, pantries, etc. Tho socond story contains
0 bedrooms, a bathroom and numerous I'losets. Largo verandahs run on
either side of tho house. The residence for the horticulturist is also of
wood, two storeys high. The building
in 112x1)7 and contains parlor, dining-
room, office and kitchen on ground
floor, and S bedrooms and a bath room
on tho second floor. The workman's
cottago is a neat l_ storey building,
vory mutable for tho purpose intended.
The barn is a vory largo building,
111x40 feet with a 35x65 foot extension. A heavy stone foundation encloses the ground floor, on which the
stables will be arranged. The stalls
and boxes for the horses and eows are
all that could be desired, while the
feor* room, root-house and other necessary apartments are most conveniently
situated. Proper precautions for efficient drainage from these buildings
have been observed, and the matter of
ventilation has also been attended to.
'renders for the erection of these buildings will be reoeived at Ottawa till
Monday, July 16th.

The Cricket Matek.
The conclusion of Saturday's cricket
match, Vanconver vs. Westminster,
through a mistake, was not forwarded
by the telegraph company from Vanoouver, and in fairness to the playen
who followed thoie already reported
we give the final result.
Lewis, after u capital stand in which
he made a score of 24, was finally
bowled by Clinton and retired from
the Hold amidit much applause. Arm-
. rong was the next to take to the wickets and with Miles held the stumps
inanfully against Vancouver's repeated
attacks. Wilkinson's fielding was superb and saved Vancouver many a run.
When Miles had scored his 61st run a
general bunt of applause went up from
the spectators, but the louudi of tho
applause had scarcely died away when
Clinton caught him' out. Armstrong
held out for 8 runs when he was caught
by Clinton. Dockrilf and Woods wore
the next who batted for Westminstor
and so well did they pound the leather
that they carried their bats through to
the finish. Both gentlemen batted
cautiously, .made the most of every hit,
and, altogether; made ns pretty a bit
of play aa was seen during the match.
The time waa drawing close to (i o'clock
and Vancouver wob congratulating itsolf that tho match could not be played
to a finish, for, had it been played out
Westminster would surety nave been
viotorioua by long oddi.
At 6 o'clock time wai called wilh
Dockrill and Woods still knocking the
leather, the former with a score of 24
and the latter 15, and both ai fresh
and capable as when they started,

Westminster play in the second inning! wai ths beit exhibition of cricket
ever leen in Vanoouver, and this was
generally conceded. For Vancouver
Nelson's wicket keeping was as near
perfection aa it could be, and the same
might be said for Gilford of Westminster. Vancouver's bowlers were completely fagged out, and it was found
neceisary to change almost every
"over." No leas than 7 of tho home
eleven bowled iu turn during tho innings. Wilkinson, Fripp, Beck and
Elwood fielded in capital stylo fnr
Vanoouver, while for Wostminster tho
fielding on the whole was good. Tho
match resulted in favor of Vancouvor,
the first innings deciding, but had the
game commenced at 11 o'clook West-
mutator would havo returned home
victorious.
