The fashionable girlof Washington
is anything but the puny creature
envious men have made her out. It
isn't really true that she will scream
when she seos a mouse, or gather up
her skirts and skedaddle yelling "a
snake!" a snake!" when she steps pn
a crooked stick. When she goes Sn
tor anything now-a-days she goes in
heart and soul—she plunges. She
goes in (or horseback riding now,
and like everything else she extracts
every atom of pleasure from it This
has been the fad for a year at least,
and the sages predicted that the hot
weather would kill it; but it hasn't
so far. There isn't a girl in the city
who has a really trim figure and a
stylish habit, who will' quit riding
just because it's hot work. No, indeed! She gets up early in the
morning and takes a trot or canter
through the woods and over the
roads, and generally returns in time
to sit down to breakfast with the
family. She has an appetite like a
cow-boy and cheeks like June roses.
If she is an expert she tells with
pleasure of the cropper she took, and
glories in the bruises. She's not
overly anxious about her complexion
either. Indeed, most of the fair
riders bid fair to rival the well seasoned tramp and the turkey egg for
brownucss and speckledness.
Tho riding school has a sort of
deserted look from outside,. but
things aire, going at a merry pace
just the same, and if you want a
horse you will have to engage him
sevoral days ahead of time. But
the soft pat of hoofs on the tan bark
is not by any means packed away
in cumphor with last season's, furs.
Many of the beginners who are too
timid or shy to appear on the road
ride there, and some of the veterans
who dont care to be broiled while
they take their exercise, take their
constitutional in the ring, and it is
decidedly pleasant. The place is cool,
shady and quiet; there is no dust,
and the wind blowing in the large
open windows makes it sufficiently
invigorating.
An old timer was complaining the
other day about the indifference of
government clerks to politics, "Blamed if I don't believe that some of
them are ignorant that a convention
has been held," he remarked by way'
of a climax to his description of
their benighted condition. "After
a while they will loose the run of
the presidents," he went on, "and
bo like the people in some of the
back countries, who are said to still
vote for Andrew Jackson." The
old man spoke with ao muoh earnost-
ness that your correspondent who
was listening to him determined to
interview some clerks and subject
them to a sort of civil service examination on politics. After talking
with several I found that all of them
know that Grover Cleveland was
president, and that he had been renominated by the national democratic convention. As to who would
be the next president there was
some difference of opinion. The
appointees under the present ad
ministration had no doubt that Mr.
Cleveland would be re-elected, and
were of the decided opinion that
the country would not be safe if tho
republican party should be returned
to power. The "hold-overs," as the
clerks appointed under former administrations are termed, were undemonstrative in their talk. They
did not seem to have given the subject nf the next president much
thought, and their views of the po
litical Situation were mild and
rather colorless. The bulletin boards
that used to be a familiar sight in
the department corridors were not
to be found and the clerks did not
seem to miss them. The interest
intho preliminary preparations far
the great national struggle did not
ripple the calm routinn of di-part-
mental life.
The congressional bath rooms are
presided over by a powerful colored
man who makes a great many extra
quarters by "rubbing down" the
statesmen who go to bathe. Tin*
usual price for the service is twenty-
live cents, but Congressman "Billy"
Mason, of Chicago, has been taxed
a half dollar every time he haa called
upon the keeper of the bath. He
discovered last Thursday that Congressman Ynrdley was securing similar service for just half what he
paid. He protested vigorously
against paying double the usual
amount, when the African gentleman retorted: "You'se quite right
Mistah Mason, sah, I dun rub down
Mistan Yardley fer a quartah, sah,
but Mistah Yardley dun weigh only
125 pounds and you tips de scales
at 250.   'Sides dis sab, dare's nigh
onto harf an acre in dat back or
yours. Still, dere ain't no reg'lnr
charge, and l'se contented wif a
quartah if you says de word, sji.1i."
Billy paid up and dropped an extra
half into the keepers hand.—Lev

IUPIRIAI riKLUMENT.
Losnox, June 26.—In the house nf
commons to-day Mr. Morley moved
the resolution, of which he gave notice
lut week, whioh - is a censure of the
government for its administration of
the Crimes'Act in Ireland asunder-
mining respect for the law and estrang-
intr the minds of the Irish people and
as deeply injurious to the lnanintcn-
ance of the Union. Mr, Morley arraigned the chief secretary for Ireland,
Mr. Balfour, for his injustice towards
the Irish prisoners, for rejecting information tending to hold them and for
his official operations regarding the
coercion act. The speaker commented
severely upon Mr. Dillon's imprisonment and declared that the tatter's
conviction was for no offense or offense
against any ordinary law and wasa
burlesque of justice. Mr. Gosehen,
the chancellor of the exceequer, replied to Mr, Morley. He Baid that
the government were conscious that
their just administration of the coercion act would meet the full approval
of all law-abidera and lhat they were
ready to meet the motion of censure
io every respect. The debate was further prolonged by Mr. Shaw-Lefevrc,
who defended Mr. Dillon and called
his imprisonment shameful. A divi-
sion on the question is nut expected
until Wednesday.
TOPPER WAITED   OS.
Ottawa, June 26.—A deputation
front, the. central emigration society,
including several members of parliament, waited on Sir Charles Tupper
today and urged thst the Dominion
government should give societies such
as theirs the right to pre-empt in the
North-west at low prices in the same
way that iree grant settlers are permitted to do, in order to give additional security for the advances to the
colonists and induce the imperial government to do more in the direction of
a state guarantee. Sir Charles Tupper
replied that he thought the utmost the
government would do would be to
transfer the right to pre-empt from the
settlers to the society. He would lay
the proposal before his government.
WITHOUT PBKCXDINT.
New York, June 26.—A special
cablegram was sent from tho Vatican
yesterday that a general decree of tho

Issued, by whioh tbe faithful in all
nations are privileged to ignore the law
of abstinence from flesh meat on next

recollection.
TltODBLE lit IHE CAMP.
Kingston, Jnne 26.—The hot

and emptied it en the green. Bird
talks of suing him for damages.

"PIRST  SERVANT OP THE STATE."
Berlin, June 27.—The landtag met
to-day. In his speech at the opening
of Ihe session King William said that
his government, like that of tha late
King Frederick, would be exercised as
a legacy from his father. He would
equally guard the rights of his peoplo
and the crown, and protect all religions.
He was gratified with the good relations
existing between the State and the
Catholic church. He was satisfied with
the Prussian finances, and hoped
that further relief of communes and
persons of small means from taxation
would be possible. The king concluded his speech with a quotation from
Frederick the Great, "The king is the
lirst of the state." Tho opening of
the landtag was accompanied by an
imposing ceremonial similar to that
observed when the reichstag met. The
chief passages of the king's addrets
were loudly applauded. When he had
finished he extended his hand to Prince'
Bismarek, who bowing low, kissed it.
After bowing to the assembly, the
king left the hall amid enthusiastic
cheering.

its fnto then to depend upon the result of
the November elections, and*that the
surplus ho kept down by an entire repeat

Canadians are.p'should' be, con-
liderably interiited in th#«ppi'oach-
ing presidential election. ' Our prosperity and peace depend a good deal
on our relations with our neighbors.
We do a great deal of trading with
them, though under very restricted
condition**. There "are a few in the
Dominion who would no doubt be
willing to be annexed altogether for
the sake of the supposed advantages,
bnt the great bulk think it is
safer to hold to our present connection and form of government, with a
more free exchange of products. In
both oountries there are the protectionists or monopolists, who are getting rich by acts of parliament and
of congress. This is tho great question that will bo uppermost in both
countries, until settled or modified
some way or other. Protection in
tho United States has tilled the
treasury vaults to overflowing; with
tho same policy ill the Dominion tho
national debt is increasing. The
tariff' reformers in oue country want
to get rid of the surplus cash; in the
other they want to stop this everlasting borrowing. A strange problem this tariff' question, and worth
studying, either by itself, or when
complicated by other issues. Perhaps it would be well just after the
presidential election is over to call a
joint convention of the different parties on both sides of the 49th parallel, and see if they could not discover and elaborate some great commercial panacea that; would cure
both diseases and establish a uniform
basis of commercial intercourse, and
at the same time ring out this decidedly mixed blessing of party government.
grandfather of Benj. J*., was in 1841
elected and inaugurated ninth president of tho United States, but
.-failed oven to indicate what sort of
a president he would have made,
although great thipgs were expect-
ed.from' his administration, for lie
died- within a inonth after his inauguration. He was a general iri
the army, like his grandson, and
also served in congress. During the
presidential campaign the Van
Buron partisans reproached Harrison with " living in a log cabin "
and " drinking hard cider." With
the Yankee tact, however, this cry
was turned against the originators.
" Log cabins " straightway became a
feature in campaign processions, ahd
" hard cider " was adopted as a rallying cry by the Harrison party,
whieh won the day by large odds.
The present Republican nominee is
said to have a very good record as a
public man. Whether a sufficient
amount of enthusiasm shall be
evoked, an account nf his antecedents, to overshadow real and live
issues is a question that tlio electors
will have to settlo for themselves.
We give the Amorieans more credit,
however, than to imagine that such
will be the case.
When a man plunges into the
centre of the Dark Continent experience goes to show that as a rule he
is thereafter practically lost to the
great civilized world outside, if, indeed, he does not lose his life in the
savage and unknown land. It was
so with Livingstone, with Bishop
Hannington, and with General Gordon; it has been so ih a greater or
less degree with others—explorers,
soldiers and missionaries. But, although lost to the world in one
sense, the result of their often devoted and self-sacrificing labors has
been bequeathed as a rich heritage
to the world they have left. And
now Africa's mysterious depths have
swallowed up two more great men.
Emin Bey, a noted German scientist
and explorer, has long been lost to
view in the vast interior, aud intelligence regarding him and his
movements confined for the most
part to uncertain rumors. With
the object of relieving him, as it was
stated he was in distress, the undaunted Stanley, who had already
earned fame from similar expeditions, notably the successful one in
search of Livingstone, plunged boldly again into the unexplored wilderness and deserts of Central Africa.
For many months now no certain intelligence has reached the ears of
the civilized world concerning him,
but the anxiety and suspense have
been increased by all sorts of
rumors, of fights with the natives, of
being wounded, deserted, killed.
And the latest mystery comes from
Suakim, on the Bed Sea, to the effect that a "white pasha" has
turned up near Khartoum, who is
variously supposed to be General
Gordon (who some think is still living); Edmond O'Donovan.the famous
war correspondent of the London
iVeiiis, who is generally supposed to
have perished with the ill-fated expedition of General Hicks; or the
explorer, Emin Bey; or Stanley himself. Further news is awaited with
the greatest interest by the entire
civilized world.
By our despatches yesterday it
would seem that Mr. and Mrs.
Blaine, who are travelling in Scotland, were both pleased when they
received the announcement by tele,
graph of Harrison'i nomination, as
the Republican candidate for president. Mrs. Blaine is credited with
saying: "I know Harrison is a
good man. He nomes of a fine family"—»n utterance not altogether
republican in its spirit; but evidence
hat not been wanting all along the
line that the people of the great republic, despite their fine theories of
the perfect equality of all men, are
prone to the common weakness of
worshipping a pedigree and hanging
their trophies on a family tree. It
ia natural and perhaps excusable
where the musty records show
nothing to be ashamed of, but greatness and goodness are not always
hereditary. They have been known
to leak oat of the blood sadly in
some instances. On the Other hand,
some whose ancestors never showed
above the horizon of events have
flashed out upon the world like
some new constellation. Bat Benj.
J. Harrison, the Republican nominee, has a background; as Mrs,
Blaine uys, "He comes of a fine
family." His greatgrandfather,
Benjamin Harrison, wai one of (he
signers of the Declaration of Independence, in 1776; he was a statesman of that stormy period, chairman
of the hoMd' of *»ar, ind was afterwards twice elected to the honorable
potition of governor of Virginia,
Mr.    William   Henry   Harrison,
ftlWf«iT*5iyiitJf(Uh(l#0p|tti*li.
The Republican convention, which
opened in Chicago on the 19th inst.,
has, on the sixth day of the convention (the 25th of June), settled the
long-pending question as to who
should be the choice of that party
forpresident.and Ben.J. Harrison, of
Indiana, is the man. Levi P. Morton, of New York, was subsequently nominated for vice-president, Our
American cousins have a peculiar
way of doing such business. It
seems to the outsider to be a kind of
lottery as to whose shoulders shall
receive the mantle, when there are
so many candidates for so important
an office and so many baliotings.
There would seem to be a good
chance for tbe heaviest wallet, that
is, if it be a supposable case that
bribery might be used. We Britishers consider ourselves very honest, and as a general thing we do
things on the square, but we are
afraid that if we elected our governor-general in the same way that
they elect their president on the
other side of the line, there would
be some danger of sharp practice.
We don't want to be tempted with
such a franchise. We think it is
safer after all to get our good Queen
und her very considerate ministers
to send us one of their noble noblemen (especially when they make
suoh good selections as they generally do) to do the honors of the federal capital. It is easily to be seen
that even in republican America
there is a great tendency to hero-
worship, which was shown in a
great degree by the foolish persistence in voting for Blaine after he
had repeatedly refused to como out,
although, of course, other factors
entered into the "Blaine boom"
The Republican party do not appear
to be well pulled together for the
approaching-contest; for, although
they have nominated Harrison, it
would appear that tho general enthusiasm for Blaine, whom they
failed to get, must detract somewhat
from the spontaneity and order with
which the subsequent canvas will be
prosecuted. The Democrats, on the'
other hand, present an undivided
front, and in unanimously nominating Cleveland show their stability
and general harmony. They are
evidently the party of progress in
the approaching contest, and in
Cleveland they have a good leader'
of the hosts. He has proved himself a man above party; he is not
popular with that part of his own
party that believe in "the spoils to
the victors;" but he is popular with
a great many Republicans who are
worthy the name—honest men. His
treatment of the vexed fishery question has been politic and dignified,
and, so far as he is concerned, amicable relations have been maintained
on all Bides; whereas, with a less
prudent and scrupulous president,
serious complications, if not bloodshed might have ensued.

If sho is unaccustomed to traveling by

ilent belief tbat she can make alt necessary changes of toilet in the berth; so iu
ibe climbs laboriously. Then sho skoots
round a while, knocks her head against
lie upper berth several'times, and gets
ier skirts wound tightly about her limbs
11 a most inextricable fashion. It is only
when she finds herself cleanlngliermuddy
overshoes ou her now spring sacque that
she concludes the thing impracticable, fl^
Then she climbs out again, stands fac-
ug the berth, buttons the curtains behind
ier, and resumes o;i« rations. The porter
:dmes along, aud, ignorant of her pres-
ince, jostles her rudely, while other passengers bang their valises unceremoniously against her. To add to the displeasure of the situation, the curtains slip'
apart at the most inopportune moment.
If she is not a very strong-minded person she Is apt to give up tlio fight fn dis-
■just, and tumble in frock and corsets and

up trimmings the other third, and rise

any account is Margaret Cubhe, who l.d
a yearly salary from the crown. She attended Elizabeth, wife of 15 iward IV., nt
the birth of Edward V.,nud special provision was made for ber rights and
privileges by an act of parliament, In
the sixteenth century tlje bench of bishops gave particular attention to the
question of midwives, and curates wero
enjoined to teach and instruct them "of
the very words and forms of baptism/1
It was in consequence of tlicccromony
of baptism being sometimes performed,
in cases of urgency, by midlives, th.it
they were examined in their duties not
only by a'doetor, but by rt bishop.' Thero
was much complaint made of the bishops
giving their license without taking auy
care to find out if they possessed "needful
knowledge or instruction."  -
"IiilSOTthe archbishop of Canterbury
granted a license to Eleanor Fi-ad, midwife, and required her to take a 1* >ug oath
to fulfil her duties faithfully; anil among
other things, she hound herself to use tho
proper words at baptism, and, moreover,'
to uso pure nud clean water, and not any

The Northwest papers ol the Conservative stripe speak favorably nf Ihe

Owing to the late date at which the
invitation was reoeived, the military
corps of thia city have decided uot to
take part in the Dominion Day celebration at Vancouver on July 2nd. It
was expected at first that an invitation
would be sent over as soon as the celebration was decided on, but several
weeks passed without hearing from
Vancouver, and the men, in consc-
quenco, made other arrangements for
tlie day, which they are now unwilling
to give up.

Tke HlcUs-Sawycr Minstrels.
The Hicks Sawyor Minstrels gave
their second and last performance at
Hart'a Opera House last evening. The
first part was composed of songs, ete.,
which were excellently rendered.
There are some splendid voices in the
troupe aid the singing, as a whole is
very enjoyable. The second part was
also excellent, the colured Knights of
Labor, in their drill, being very laughable, Jack Evans with his clog dancing
being capital, while Connora Bros.,
the acrobats, are something wonderful
and well worth seeing. Pope's imitation of an old darkey waa excellent,
and the rest of the programme waa
very good. — News-Advertuer. The
minstrels play in Herring's* Opera
Houso to-night, and, from the above,
it is certain a very enjoyable programme will be rendered.
Silver en the North Arm.
Mr. \V. M. Wattora, an export
miner, was in the city to-day and to a
representative of the Columbian revealed the important fact that he has
discovered a rich silver ledge on tlie
Nortli Arm, and within a few hundred
yards of the salt water, The presence
ut this lodge wss hardly suspected until Mr. Watters made tho discuvery,
and, iu fact, the North Ann was not
looked upon as a field of arty value for
the prospector. Mr. Watters haB been
following up tho ledgo for noarly a
year, fully satisfied that his labor would
result pruliinbly in the end. Tho
newly discovered lodge is 30 ft. wide
and the quartz is pronounced to be a
fine free milling ore. A company,
with ample capital, has been formed to
develup the claims und wurk will be
Immediately proceeded with. We
hope Mr. Wattera, who by the way is
a woll known "typu," andhiscumpsny
will make rr good thing out of this discovery.
.'rumbling Away.
At noon to-day a number of old,
dilapidated buildings, situated over the
ravine at the northwest corner of Oovemment and Johnson sts., and in rear
of the Germania saloon, tumbled down
from old age with a great orasli. The
shanties being old it was supposod they
were inhabited by no uno. Shortly
after the collapse took place a China
man wu observed crawling out of
tho debris with his garments torn
and tattered; hie face, not an
inviting one at beat, was besmeared
with blood, which flowed from a severe scalp wound. The poor creature
remained in a helpless state for some
time. A white laborer went to hia
rescue and got him out of danger's
way. Stimulants were administered,
ana in a short time the injured Chinaman ww able to move about. Hia

The midsummer examinations in
the public schools ol the city began
this morning. The lirst division examined waa that of Miss Homer, where
the little ones were tested as to the
progress they had made during the
past term. None of the trustees were
present and only a few viaitors watched the exercises. The children acquitted themselves very creditably and reflected muoh credit on the care bestowed upon them by their teacher,
In this class the following secured the
rolU uf hunur: Walter J. Oreen, for
proficiency; Frank H. Bskor, fur
punctuality; aud Harriet Burr, fur deportment.
Miss Davidson's divisiou was tbe
next examined. Tho examination waa
exceedingly good and the children
showed advancement scarcely to be
expected at their age. The answers
in geography, grammar, arithmetic,
etc., were answered with a readiness
that was somewhat surprising, considering how difficult many uf the propositions were. Miss Davidson deserves
the highest praise for the excellent
showing made by her scholars. Recitations by several of the little girls
were' very, nicely rendered. None of
the trustees were present. Itev. Mr.
Scouler and Rev. Mr. Tait, of Langley,
and a number of parents and visitors
watched the proceedings with muoh
interest. Bev. Mr. Scouler made a
few appropriate remarks and presented
honor rolls to George Burr for proficiency, David Hoy for punctuality,
and Maud Pearoe for deportment.
Special mention might be -made of
David Hoy, who never missed a day
and was not late for school during the
term. This certainly deserves commendation.
This afternoon Min Rogers' division was examined. This being a
higher department than the two previous .divisiuns examined, the studies
are more numerous and varied. Miss
Rogers, with much care, examined the
pupils in every branch ol their studies
and the responses wero given with a
precision and promptness indicative of
close srudyand careful training. Probably the most telling proof of the excellent training the pupils have undergone wu the ram) responses to difficult questions In mental arithmetic.
The accurate manner in which these
questions wero answered was creditable alike to both teacher and pupils.
At the conclusion of the examination
Rev. Mr. Scouler presented honor
rolls to Myrtle Ackerman fnr proficiency, Anna Helena Turner for punctuality, and Elizabeth Hume Haddon
for deportment. Miss Myrtie Ackerman was also presented with the certificate won by her for entrance to tho
high school. This was the only certificate gained in the division. Rev. Mr.
Scouler and Rev. Mr. Haddon delivered short addressoB, congratulating
tlie teacher and pupils on the excellence of the examination and on their
application to their school duties.
About 25 visitors watched the examination. At intervals some exceedingly
well rendered recitations were given
by the pupils. •
The class rooms wero all taatsfully
decorated with evergreens and flowers,
the teachers' desks being particularly
favored. On Ihe desks, in front of
almost every scholar, were most handsome bouquets, which, when associated
with a lot of handsomely dressed young
ladies, made the whnle a very pretty
scene.
It was generally remarked that the
sohool trustees wero conspicuous by
their absence.

Overland frum New We.lmla.ler te
Hnaaas,
Having secured an excojlent team of
horses for the trip (Mr. Johnston's)
we started on our journey from Mr.
Punch's place, Brownsville, about 0
o'clock in the morning. The rising
hills and beautiful timber groves were
soon left behind, and we were at once
launched on the lovely flats of the
Serpentine. Here extensive improvements have been made by Messrs.
Oann and McCallum. A perfect garden, lovely to look upon. A few more
miles through a beautiful country we
vjrere in view of tlie Langley Prairie,
thickly settled by enterprising farmers.
One might well call it tho garden of
British Columbia. A mile ur twu
further un our way we arrived at mine
hoat'a hotel, W. Murray's, a lovely
spot, from which oan be seen tbo whole
valley oE the Langley Prairie. Here
we remained for an hour to rest our
noble team, having made the distance
19 miles—in less than two hours. If
you want to assist the inner man call
at Murray's, where you can get frum
ice cream tu a good rout of beef or
mutton. Time up we were off again
and soon we arrived at Alder Grove, a
new settlement not yet twu years uid.
The progress made in improvements
in this placo is something wonderful;
miles of fencing and clearing with must
beautiful dwellings, stores and huu.es
of accommodation fur the travelling
public are to be met everywhere,
would like t. furnish you wilh the
names.uf thsse progressive settlers,but
time or space will not permit. After
making a short oall at Mr. Jackman's
residence we were again un our journey. Mr. Johnston, with something
concealed in a pair uf gum bouts, the
contents of which I could not tell,
made the horses travel over the road
at tha rate of ten miles per hour until
we made Wm, Cousins model farm-
where a ahort halt wu made. Soon
we wen on our way again, passing
through beautiful dells and groves,
with here and there a cozy and pleasant home. We soon arrived at Mr.
Musselwhite's place, of H, M. customs, a pleasant residence overlooking
the Sumas Prairie. We lelt our team
at Mr. Musselwhite's place until our
return, on account of high water and
ware compelled to proceed on our
journey by means of a boat. Allon
board we galled under a "spanking"
breeze round island and point until we
reaohed tha famous settlement of
Suium. Arriving at Mr. Campbell's
country seat, and after a grand reput
our party aepsrated. Your correspondent, accompanied by another of the
party, then took the way to tha York
aettleroeat. On arriving we found the
old gentleman, Mr. York, with smiling
countenanee, ready to receive us.
Viewing hia beautiful orchard and
grounds—a grand pioture of comfort
and plenty—Words could not describe
tha beauty and luxury Of this home,
bringing to memory tha old homes in
lands we left behind us, our journey
ended. We can only say that a mora
careful and obliging driver than Mr.
Johnston could not be wished for, and
our trip throughout was as pleasant as
could be desired. . Our reception at
Sumas wu all hospitality and friendship, which csnnot soon be forgotten.
