According to tho St. Pail Pioneer-
Press the yield of wheat in Minns-
iota and Dakota this year has beon
10,000,000 in excess ofthe estimate,
having reached about 95,000,000
bushels. With suoh a tremendous
surplus as this there seems no immediate danger of starvation in
these states at least. In quality tho
Wheat ranks very high, being about
equal to Manitoba wheat.
Mr. Joseph Chamberlain is said to
hsve stated the other day that Great
Britain would not lift a finger to
prevent Canada proclaiming her independence, or even annexing hor.
self to the United States, if such
was her wish. Mr. Chamberlain
cannot be taken as authorized to represent the feeling of the Britisli
people in such a matter as this, although it is altogether probable that
his statement is perfectly true. If
Canada should wish to secure absolute independence or annexation,
she would be almost certain to receive aid from the United States. It
has been America's policy to make
this continent truly American in
sentiment and in fact. It was with
a «ew to this thst the Monroe doctrine was adopted as a part of the
national policy. The United States
has never been a beligerent nation.
Its aim has been to live in peace and
expend its emergies in the development of its own wonderful resources. Having adopted this principle,
it has viewed with misgiving all
efforts of European nations to establish a footing on the continent.
Great Britain was here already, and
so were Mexico and Russia and Central America; but Russia's title has
been extinguished by purchase, and
a veiy sharp look-out is constantly
kept on the rest. In polioy and
national sentiment as well as in
language, Oanada is so like the
United States that annexation
would scarcely be perceptible beyond
certain official circles. We believe
if a vote were taken in Canada today, there would be a vary large
majority against annexation, We
are aot without national sentiment,
and there is a widespread feeling of
allegiance to the mother country;
but if Great Britain means to let
Oanada paddle her own canoe and
fight her own battles unaided, we
should not be surprised to find annexation become so popular as to
carry with it a majority of the
votes.
lta two vacancies created by tho
resignation of Mr. Shakespeare, M.
P., and Major Prior, M. P. P., will
make things quite lively for island
politicians. Mr. Shakespeare retires
from the commons to accept the
much more lucrative position of
postmaster at Viotoria, while Major
Prior resigns his seat in the local
house to become a candidate for the
seat vacated by Mr. Shakespeare.
Mayor Fell is also said to be after
the aame seat, and we shall not be
surprised if half a dosen more aspirants, will put themselves forward
as willing victims before the day
of nomination. There are on hand,
therefore, a federal and provincial
deqtion iu Victoria, besides the
municipal contest, which is likely to
attract more than ordinary interest.
The results of these elections will be
looked for with a good deal of curiosity. Mr. Shakespeare's successor
will, of course, be a thoroughbred
tory. No other need apply, and if
Mayor Fell, ns reported, thinks of
posing as a liberal, his defeat may
be announoed beforehand. There
maybe another chance for Oapt.
MoOallutn, who was defeated on a
former occasion; and who knows but
Mr. Humphreys may also contest
one of the vacant seats if he happens
to loss the race in Oomox! Among
all the smoke of battle we shall  be
rto discern signs of improvement.
Shakespeare has made a fairly
goodrepresentativejbutasaruleitwill
be found that members of parliament
who resign to take an appointment
in the oivil service have been seeking for tbe plaoe, and have not,
therefore, been in a position to aot
independently in the interest of
their constituents. We do not
know whether this has been true of
M*. Shakepearo or not. Major
Prior, we believe, has made a very
mod member ofthe legislature. He
has sometimes uttered sentiments
which were not in the interest of
goods morals, as, for example, his
advocacy of an amendment in favor
ctflMday shooting, but he is a pretty dear headed business man, and
seems to hsve the interests of. his
constituents in business affairs
clearly at heart. He is naturally
moro indenpedent, we believe, than
his predecessor has been. There is certain to be a big scramble for * the
seat made vacant by Mr. Prior's
resignation. Mr. F. S. Barnard ia
already announced as a candidate
toy it Tbo opposition will surely
moke a vigorous effort to fill it with
one of themselves. If they succeed;
tbe government will still have a
Urge majority, bnt such a victory
for tbe *tats" would be extremely
gratafal to them at the present
tiif****'-'.

A Sluggish Liver
Causes the Stom*u*h aud Bow'ols to bo-

to suffer1 from dohility. In ail such
cases Ayor's fills gW. prompt relief.
After much suffering from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Fills.
I always find them prompt and* thorough
in their action, and their occasional use
keeps me In a perfectly healthy condition. —Ralph Weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy, action by taking Ayer's Fills.
Since that time I have never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase tho appetite, more surely than any. other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.
INVIGORATED.
I know of no remedy equal to Ayer'a
Pills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Livor, and Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin
was yellow, and my tongue coated. I
had no appetite, suffered from Headache, was pale and emaciated. A few
boxes of Ayer's Fills, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Ayer's Pills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting bom
Liver Complaint. I have used these
Pills in my family, for years, and they
never fail to give entire satisfaction.—

"Papa, wbti us the bells ringing
for?"
"Tbey are ths church bolls, dear boy;
tomorrow will b« Christmas day."
"Papa," continued the dying child, in
a faint reproachful voice, "you never
told me about Christmas; bnt mainina
di.l, nn 1 read to me about the Child in
the umrrjjer, and I know—I know—0,
papn, it ih all dark—will it ever be

Tho strong mnn bowed his head over
tbe small, cold hand he held in his and
the hot tears fell upon it, The child moved
rlsesly and Ih pain on his pillows
looking from one kind face to the othei
and again listening to the faint chimes of
the bells, as thoy rung out now far, now
new, like voices In the sky. The kind
old doctor save htm t spoonful of the
cordial that moistened the feverish
lips. When the last paroxysm of deadly pnl'i had passed, the child turned hie
briulit-too bright—eyes towards hit
father, but their pupils were so dilated
he con d not see bim plainly.
"Papn, are the bells calling me? Thoy
seem to say, Come, Charlie! Is it that,
an 1 what un thev mean?"
"Charlie," said tho grave old doctor,
ben linn with a kind and gracious face
over tb i dying boy. "you know there was
onco a Child born in a manger on Christmas Kve; He came to tell us all of a
beautiful home where yon will not have
any pain or Ire sick or sorry any more j
He lows littlo children, and they are
Hin, nn 1 ii vou go to sleep to-night and
wnkeu in that beantiful tome where he
Is, it will only be it little while before
mamma and papa will be there with you.
Just say your little good night prayer,
my boy, and go to sleep, and you will
find it morning when you awake."
"Christmas morning?" asked the child
fee'rly. "I—wonder what Santa Claua
will bring-rpapa-|f-*M|m gonor-iive
—all my—presents—to some poor child—
in -•— manger—because—he—won't
havn-nny—**
'•Yes dear boy" and then father and
motlurr bent over him for ho was smiling
brightly. What he saw they could not
see—what he heard they could not hear
—his eyea were .fixed—tho .breath tlut-
tererlon his lips.
"Oh," he said,' softly with a smilo of
inliuite peace, 'thoy did wont me—it's
the bells' voices—come Charlie, come
Charlie—and the children too—they're
—coming—oh papa—mamma	
it's Christmas morning?"
The miserable shadow stole along the
streets in the very echo of the bells that
rung out "Peace on earth, good will tu
men," and in its arm it carried another
shadow, a gaunt spectra of want and woe.
These two had done no wrong, yet
there waa not a hand uplifted to help
them. Tha mother heart under the
rags of poverty had failed at laid, and
given up the great struggle for dsily
bread—sickness nad done lis worat-the
wedding ring had gone from her linger

but he had wasted away beneath her
anxious eyea day by day, hour by hour,
and that waa but a waxen emblem ol
humanity aha held in her thin arms.
Where she waa going in ber fnad flight
she hod nj definite Idea i bnt it aeemed
as if tha Christmaa bells had driven her

wretched garret, her brain on fire with
a desperate longing to get somewhere
beyond it all. She had passed a church

white robes, and a Christmas tne sheti

In his recent sermon before tbe American Baptist Home Mission Society
preached at Minneapolis, the Rev. A. .1.
Cordon, D. IX, said:
"It is our misfortune that wo are SO
little united for impression and influence.
TheCatlioliccliiirch Is immense in numbers, and its power is proportionate
through the compactness of ita organization. Vinet well Bays that "Jesuitism is
llninanism concentrated, just as Roman-
irrai ia Jesuitism expanded." Hence its
reinarlrability to focalize its influence or
to radiate its influence according tothe
requirement.
'•I do not sigh for any Baptist hierarchy; but I do long for some means of
condensing; our denominational energy,
and bringing it to bear upon missionary
ell'oi'tn. When it appear, that our 2,750,-
'KR) communicants give hardly more than
rit.O'HI' ro a year for the work of our throe
great wreiotlcs—only 15 cents n bead annually for bomo and foreign missions, we
hare more lesson to bo ashamed of the
quality of our members than we have to
bo proud of their quantity.
" There is a renl ilanger that wo weaken
ourselves through expansion, and through
the inllation and self-confidence which
that expansion begets. If we could only
unite all our people in the one thing ol
regular and systematic giving — each
member contributing something every
week, however little—what a concentration nl force it would effect 1"

One ol tho simplest and best illustrations oi "faith" which I remember to
have seen is a story told by M. Theodore
Monod. A Sunday-school teacher, when
teaeUinirhis class on one occasion, left his
seat and went around among his scholars
with his watch in his hand. Holding it
out to the lirst child, he said;
"I give you this watch."
The boy stared at it and stood still. Ho
then went to the noxt nnd repeated:
"I give you this watch."
The boy blushed, but that wns all. Ono
by ono the teacher repeated the words
and tho action to each. Some stared,
some blushed, somo smiled incredulously,
but none look the watch. But when he
came nearly to tho bottom of the class a
small boy put out his hand and took tho
watch which the teacher handed to him.
As the latter returned to his seat tho littlo
fellow said, gently:
"Then if you please, sir, the watch ia
mine ?"
"Yes, it is youre."
The elder boys wero fairly roused hy
this time.
"Do you mean to say; sir, that ho may
keep the watch I"
"Certainly; I gave it to any boy who
would have it."
"Oh, if I had known that," exclaimed
one of them, "I would havo taken It."
"Did 1 not tell you I gave it to you?"
'■Oh, yes;  but I did not believe yo
were in earnest"
"So much the worso for yon; he Uy
lieved me, and be has the watch."
What a different thing would tbo Morning and Evening Prayer be, if onr congregation hsd the simple faith ol the boy.
When the minister* says, "He pardoneth
and absolveth all them that truly repent
and unfeignedly believe his Holy Goepel," Gods gilt of pardon is held out Id
all penitents. If they only had faith tc
realize it, and tako tho gift so loving!)
ofibred by God through his ambassador,
how many a burden ol guilt would he laid
down! How many would go forth with
joy and peace In believing!

In the Greek Church of eastern Europo
much of the religious work is done by the
married parish clorgy, who are popularly
styled "Papas" or "Fathers." Bishops
aro not allowed to marry, but the working clergy are not, as a rule, ordained until tbey are married. They difl'er from
the monastic clergy, from among which
the Bishops aro chosen, in other ways,
but it ia to tliem that the people look for
pastoral work. Tbey belong by birth lo
the people, and they usually live on terms
of familiarity with the peasantry, and
identify theiuselver with the rustic population, being not much distinguished irom
them in manners and habits of domestic
life.
Among tho ecclesiastical customs of
Bulgaria is that of the priest visiting a
farm-yard, at stated intervals, lo pronounce
a religious benediction upon the increase
of tbo flocks and herds; tlu) oxen and
cowa, the sheep, the goats, getting tbe
benefit of hjs blessing, which is read with
solemnity from an authorized liturgy, accompanied with the gcntlo waving of a
feathered fan, sprinkling a few drops of
consecrated water in the presence of the
assembled rural household.

Anxious, however, to ascertain tho

meeting, or on application to Mrs. Jas.
Cunningham at her house. The public will be admitted on payment of 25

Hanli.ha Wheat.
Ottawa officials of the C. P. R. state
that the amount of Manitoba wheat
which has so far been moved east from
Winnipeg is about 0,000,000 bushels.
About 4,000,000 bushels of this hss
passed through Ottawa in bond to
Boston and Now York for export, or
to Montreal and Quebec. Of the remaining 2,000,000 a small proportion
has gone to Western Ontario, wliere
Manitoba wheat is boing purchased
this season owing trr tho shortness in
the Ontario crops, but most of the 2,-
000,000 bushels nro nt Port Arthur, in
the elevators of the company, awaiting can to move it this way.—Ottawa
Correspondence. Toronto Mail.
The Boyce'LansIng Co.
Those who were unable to be present at Ihe entertainment given by this
company in Herring's Opera Houso on
Saturday night missed a rare treat.
The music of the Swiss bells wss
charming, the either duet showed the
players to have acquired great pro
ficiency with that most difficult instrument, and tho violin playing of Olf
Moon wss probably the best ever heard
in the city. The vocal trio, with bell
accompaniment, was very pretty. The
second part of the programme consisted
of a musical comedy, and was certainly
not less nttractivo than the tint, ft
was music mixed with mirth, and both
were excellent. - The character transformations were very cleverly done,
and produced uninterrupted merriment. Mr. Web Lansing's performance on his orchestra wss certainly
wonderfully olever. Unaided by any
mechanical helps he played no fewer
than seven different instruments at the
same timo, making excellent music
and winning for himself deserved applause. During the evening's entertainment over 16 different' instruments were plsyed by different members of the company, und on all of them
the playars seemed quite at home. It
is not of ion thst a travelling company
gives a whole programme without blot,
'and wo were glad to find the Royco-
Lanoing Co's. performance perfectly
clean and unobjectionable from lint to
last. The Opera House was filled,
both hall and gallery.

Correspondence of the Columbian.
Oxakaoak, Dec. 21—An influential
snd successful meeting was held nt
Spallumcheen, on the Uth inst,, re
the proposed Shuswap and Okanagan
railway. Steps an being taken to
send a delegate to Ottawa to work iu
conjunction with the member for the
district at the coming session, for the
purpose of scouting assistance Irom
the Dominion government. Tho indefatigable Mr. M. Lumby is the gentle msu chosen for the work. A portion of a skeleton of the genua homo
wu found some days ago at Cherry
Cnek and is supposed tb have some
connection with the murder of Mr.
Dewar in 1882. Stock in the Cherry
Creek Mining Co. has advanced coll-
aidonhly lately, and the holden are
ssnguine of a rich reward. Farmers
were busy plowing lsst week with better success than any timo during the
season, and one at Vernon sowed thirty
seres of fall wheat during the week
ending 17thinst!" 'This speaks volumes for our country and climnto.
The local licensing oourt sitting at
Vernon last week cut oft* one licensed
house. There was one application,
but it was not granted. The Hon. F.
G. Vornon lately paid this purt a short
visit nnd returning drove over the
now road from SpaTluinchoon to Sicamous station on tho C.P.R. This
rood is a great boon to the residents

Christmas Day
Passes off Quietly In the KoyalClly.
The Churches and llie Hospitals.
Other Notes.
Christmas morning was usherod iu
with un old lashioned fall of snow.which,
before the forenoon was ovor hsd
whitened the ground and gave the oity
a very wintry like appearance. As the
weather was mild the snow formed a
coating of slush over the sidewalk
which made it extremely disagreeable
to travel through. Tho day was n
very quiet one throughout tho city and
it was generally remarkod thnt it was
the most uneventful Christmas in
many years. The weather wns too
inclement for driving or othor out
dour jollities and the consequence was
thnt everybody kept closely confined
to their homes or wherever thoy were
to spend the day.
THE   CHURCHES.
Midnight mass was celebrated in St.
Peter's Cathedral on Sunday morning.
The church was beautifully decorated,
and, in the full gas light, presented a
gorgeous appearance. The services
were very grand und impressive, snd
were attentively listened to and participated in by the immense congregation which filled the ohurch.
The decorations st Holy Trinity were
not up to the usual standard but still
they.jwero vory pretty and chaste.
Services were held at 7, 8 and 11 a.m.,
and at 7 p.m., all of which were vory
well attended.
The other churches had full congregations, and eloquent and appropriate
sermons were delivered by the clergymen officiating.
PUBLIC INSTITUTIONS.
Tho Royal Columbian Hospital was
the scene of a happy little dinner
parly on Xmas Day. A splendid bill
of fare had been prepared which embraced almost everything that could be
purchased on the market. Every
patient, but one, in the hospital was
able to appear at the table, und all
were sufficiently convalescent to enjoy
the many good things laid before them.
Yesterday afternoon Mrs. Wm. Cochrane visited the hospital and presented
each patient with a Christmns card.
At St. Mary's Hospital the day pas-
sod very quietly. A very nice dinner
was prepared, but, as many of the
patients were unable to leave their
wards, the meal, which was u very
good one, was served in the different
rooms. Quite a number of visitors
called during the day.
The inmates of the Insano Asylum
were treated to a special spresd on
Sunday whioh they relished equally aa
well as their sane brethern in other
parts of the city..
At the penetentiary Mr. A. H. Mo-
Bride, tho warden, had a special bill of
fare for the day. At breakfast, beef-
steak wob served out, and at dinner,
roast boef and plum pudding along with
vegetables, tea, coffee, bread and butter. The luxury of sugar and milk
was also allowed on the occasion. The
prisoners" on^byed' tlie banquet vory
muoh and stowed nway remarkable
quantities of good things. As a result
of tho dinner, sevoral of the prisoners
are laid up to-day from tho effects of
gorging themselves.
The prisoners at the gaol took their
Xmas dinner together in the chapel,
temporary tables having beeu erected
for the purpose. The aupply of provisions was ample, noarly 100 lbs. of
roast beef, and immense dishes of potatoes, plum pudding, etc., having
been disposed of. There, wero present Mr. W. R. Austin, president of
the Y. M. 0. A., Mrs. Jas. Cunningham, president of the W. O. T. U.,
and Mrs. D. Robson, all of whom
havo tskon a deep intoreBt in evangelistic work among tho prisonen. Mr.
Moresby, governor of the gaol, presided, and the prisoners expressed
tlieir appreciation of the Xmas treat
by passing a resolution of thanks.
There are about 40 prisoners now in
the institution.
