NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Says an exchange: A Yale graduate, who was a student about 30
years ago, said, in speaking of changes
that had taken place since his tine:
"I never knew whether to attach any
significance to it or not, but when I
was there the Law school adjoined
the gaol, the Medical College wai
next the cemetery, and the Divinity
school was on the road to the
Poorhouse."
It ie expected that the Britiih
Governrnont will during the autumn
session ask Farliament to make provision for the children of the Prince
of Wales. It is understood that except from extremists like Mr, Brad-
laugh and Mr, Labouchere there will
be no serious opposition to a moderate grant, if it is understood that it
will be final. The feeling is growing
among the masses of people that a
royal family is becoming a too expensive luxury, and this feeling no
government can wholly disregard.
Liberal journals intimate pretty
plainly that the line must be drawn
somewhere, and that an application
for a grant on behalf of the Duke of
Edinburgh's children will be laughed
out of the House.
A crime of a peculiarly dastardly
nature is charged against a New
York amateur photographer and
electrician, lie is under arrest for
circulating obscene pictures, made
in a secluded apartment in the house
of his parents, who are respectable
people. It is charged that, obtaining the photographs ef well-known
persons, chiefly ladies, he has cut
out the heads and pasted them over
other figures, and by rephotograph-
ing bas secured a negative from
which apparently perfect pictures
are obtained. These are tha. prints
he is charged with circulating, and
the enormity of the offence may
readily be appreciated. Such a
cowardly attack upon innocent people ought to meet with severe punishment if the charge can be proved.
It is likely that the crime is one
whioh is seldom committed, and
then only by an exceptionally depraved nature,
The Scientific American gives the
following interesting account of Mr,
Crowley, the wonderfully intelligent
chimpanzee, who died recently: Remus Crowley, the remarkably intelligent monkey of Central Park, Kew
York, died there on the 31st of
August last, greatly to the regret of
the children and the thousands of
people who were in the habit of
visiting our city zoological collection.
The animal evinced great aptitude
in acquiring human habits. He
was taught to sit at table, partake
of his meals, use the plate, fork,
tumbler, etc In his actions he
sometimes displayed a wonderfully
close relationship to humanity. Mr.
Crowley was born in June, 1883, in
a remote part of the Congo country,
\V; H. Smyth, United Statei Minister to Liberia, bought him just as
he was leaving Sierra Leone for
home. The little chimpanzee stood
the long voyage to Liverpool well,
and when he arrived here in a White
Star steamer, he was chipper a i
healthy. The city paid Mr. Smyth
tho $128 it had cost to bring Crowley to New York, and Supt. Conklin
carried the stranger uptown in his
overcoat pocket. Ho was then a
little bit of a baby, weighing fifteen
pounds or less. Supt. Conklin had
a special cage made for him in the
monkey house, and made Jake Cook
his keeper, Jako named him, and
began to train him at once. In a
week he had taught him to lit at a
table, and within a few months he
had initiated him into the use ef
knife, fork, spoon, dish, and napkin,
Crowley spent his first winter in Mr.
Conklin'i office, where he ripped up
lots of valuable books and had any
amount of fun, As he grew bigger,
ho had to be moved from houso to
house, in order to accomodate the
immense crowds who visited him.
Last spring a cage wus built for him
at u cost of $500. In ono compartment lived Kitty, a chimpanzee, now
two years old. Her native village
is Banana Point, on the Congo
River. Sho was to have been Crowley's mate, but his deuth cuiue
too soon.

It would seem as tliougli this city
need not expect anything like justice
at the hinds of the 0. P. R. That
company, not content with failing in
common justice to this place, descend! to unfair discrimination and
almost absurd violation of ordinary
'-yaste**! obligations. Notwithstanding the pledges of the 0. P. R. to
place the three chief cities of British
Oolumbia on an equal footing, without discriminating in favor of any,
and in ipite of its agreement obligations with thil eity, that corporation
not only gives us an inadequate service, but, through its employees, actually resorts to misrepresentation
and unworthy shifts to confer paltry
benefit! upon Vancouver at the expense of this city, and at the expense, also, of tho travelling publio.
The instance cited in this paper yesterday of tho refusal of the 0. P. R.
to sell ticket! in Montreal for this
oity is only one of similar cases that
are continually transpiring. To-day
we publish some particulars of a recent incident on the Pacific express,
vouched for by one of our own citizens, Mr. J. G. Jaquos, who happened to be coming from the intorior
at the time, In this case, barefaced misrepresentation—the next
thing to actual force—was resorted
to to prevent three lady passengers,
en route to Nanaimo, coming by way
of this city, where they could have
connected next morning by steamer
for their destination. The conductor
assured them that they could not get
to Nanaimo at all from this city,
and even kindly (I) changed the
ohecks on their baggage from Westminster to Vancouver! In the interests of the traveling public alone,
these scandalous mal-practices must
be exposed and their discontinuance
insisted upon. We are glad to see
that our city council are moving in
the matter and have the question
tinder consideration, By the report
of the regular counoil meeting held
hut night, published elsewhere, it
will be seen what steps bave boeti
taken in the matter. A resolution
will probably be passed at the next
leuion of the council, asserting the
rights of the city and condemning
the unfair discrimination of the
0. P. R. There is a limit beyond
which even a great railway corporation cannot trespass with impunity,
and we hope to see this limit clearly
defined.
The Victoria press, we are glad to
set, ii doing its duty by Mr. Moody,
and ably seconding his good work
by liberal reports of the services, as
well as by words of praise and encouragement editorially. This is
right, and the press will lose nothing
by it, nor need they fear that their
estimate of Mr. Moody and his
work may have to be revised in the
future, as might be the case if the
great evangelist's sincerity and
linglo-mindedness were not already
eitabliihed beyond the shadow of a
doubt in nearly every quarter of the
civilized world. There are, doubt-
leu, among evangelists even, as
among other professions, a few
"wolves in sheep's clothing," but
Mr. Moody is not one of these. He
is, to use a colloquialism, the " clear
quill," and it is ths undoubtedness
of this fact that insures him the
respect and hearing of all classes
wherever he goes, while his intense
earnestness, his deep understanding
of human nature, his tact, common
lensc, and simplicity aud directness
of style, rivet the attention and engage the interest and sympathies of
hii hearers. Here is what the Times
says editorially on the subject of the
meeting! now being held in Victoria
by Mr. Moody: "The advent of
Mr. Moody, the world-renowned
ev.ngelilt, will form a red-letter day
in the religious calendar of our city,
Judging horn the reception given
hiin and the vast concourse of people
that auembled to drink of the
words that flow so freely from hii
lips, we are not going beyond the
bounda of safe conjecture in saying
that the changes in Victoria as a result, will be more marked than was
observable after the visit of any former evangelist. The lassitude in nil
matten pertaining to aocial, moral
and religious life has hitherto been
remarked. The present movement
has awakened some of the people to
a sense of their condition and tho
neglect by a large majority of the
teaching! of the gospel. The admis-
lion is not very creditable to us as a
community, nor does it speak very
highly of the past efforts of the minuter! of the goipel who failed to
itay the tide of lin and unbelief,
We have good and honest men engaged in the work, who are reaping
a Urge harvest of unbelief and in-
diJerence permitted to be sown by
their predecessors. The condition
oi moiety in the early dayi led even
nrinistsn into the ohannel of indifference. There existed a kind of
"go-day, coine-day," feature in society, a striving for self to the
negleot of all othen, and to such
muit be attributed the present rating
of our statu! ai a Christian community. The flood of the renaissance,
commenced hut evening by Mr.
Moody, hai fairly itarted, and will,
it is hoped, sweep in one vast avalanche all moral uncleanlinesi forever
from the oity." The Colonitt devotes
a column editorial to Mr. Moody and J
bit work in Viotoria, from which we
•jmte»few pMtegci:  "Why la it
^^^^esgEi^iMVis
the people flock to hear Mr. Moody I
Men and women who hardly enter a
church from one year's end to the
other, who seem dead to all religious
influences, careless young people who
so far as appearances go never give a
thought to any serious'subjoot, attend the evangelist's services and appear to enjoy them. How is this!
If only religiously disposed persons
attended his meetings and derived
good from them his crowded houses
would not be surprising. But the
sinners even more than the saints
seem to be attracted by his preaching. Persons of all ages anil every
degree of culture, and very many
with no culture at all to speak of,
hoar him gladly. * * * As a
speaker'Mr. Moody is as powerful
and effective now as he was fifteen
years ago. He has found his way to
the popular heart, and tlmt way
is as open to him now as
ever it was. * * * What
are the means that Mr. Moudy uses)
In the first placo it does not require
a profound observer to see that he is
thoroughly in earnest. He docs none
of hid work in a formal perfunctory
manner, If he is not sincere, if he
is not filled with a desire lo do his
hearers good, he is an actor of consummate skill. When be is talking
he completely forgots himself. There
is not a single sign of self-consciousness about his manner or his language. His words seem to well up
fresh from his heart, and he looks ns
if he wero completely absorbed in
his desire to convey his thoughts to
his hearers. He is clearly a magnetic man; but is not his intense
earnestness the cause of iiis magnetism I His magnetism seems akin to
that of a person about to impart
some momentous news, whether of
joy or sorrow, whose very looks nre
eleotrio, and who imparts a thrill to
those whom ho seeks to address before ho opens his lips. The ovan-
gelist's earnestness is contagious,
many catch it who are unwilling to
be impressed. This is how hundreds
who go to mock remain mid pray.
Mr, Moody adapts his language to
the feelings and the understanding
of those whom he addresses. His
simple, homely talk, coming from
the heart, goes to the heart." The
Colonist goes on to relate that Mr.
Moody delivers short discourses and
gives his hearers lots of music, with
the result that he " never loses his
hold on them until he pronounces
the benediction." We are sure that
our readers generally will be gratified
that they are likely to havo an opportunity of hearing this remarkable man, and there is no doubt that
his audiences here will be as large,
in comparison with the population,
as they have been wherever he hai
appeared,

An Account or the StllelIn ami tlio Shorn
Subttltutcs for It.
Theitllettoianpeculiar wwipljli. Thero
li nothing of American maniifiictiire like
It.
In length it runs from six to fifteen
inches. The blade is about twico tho
length of the handle, dagger edged, thick
at th. narrow guard, nnd tapering off to
excessive thinness at the point. At tho
guard th. diameter of the blade Is diamond iliaped, and tlio two extra eagea
run almost to the point.
Th. reid edges, which are raior-iharp,
makoawonnd which tlio auxiliary edges,
mon blunt thsn abarp, aggravate to «
terrible degree.
So effect!-, li It, and 10 mnrderoui tn
tb.tt.ndt of . dexterous man, that the
Italian Government has recently been experimenting with it as a weapon at closo
quarters, nnd In tho Mnssowah campaign
several companies were armed with
shields And long litlleltos.
The weapon li carried in a sheith liko
an ordinary dagger.
Another knife, commonly carried and
frequently used by criminal Italians, is
what Professor Scauu.ipii.co, the Ne«poll-
tin fencing matter culls tho "niolletto,"
The molletta bears some resemblance to
a razor, though considerably longer.
There Is only one cilge, and tho blade
opens like i penknife.
It iwingi loose, however, ond when
drawn'Is opened liy niciiiim hold of the
handle wltb the fln/ieia anil throwing the
blade outward. This requires practice
and dexterity.
A small spring catches the knife and
holds It open. It is closed by pressure
upon a tiny 'button ' on tbe handle.
Though not ns ell ..-ctive a weapon as tho
itiletto.lt makes tin ugly wound when
used by an expert, nud can be opened almost as quickly as it stiletto can be drawn
from its slieatli.
Tho ease with which it can be concealed
adds to tho frequency of Its use, Tho
handle li bard wood or bone.
There is an up-town establishment that
Is said to Import utilettos ii ml other Italian
weapons. A email stiletto can be bought
for 13. The largest s-izes cost 15 and $8.
An imported niolte' ta costs $4.
Ths price places the real Italian article
out of the reach of ninny of the knife
users who have fnlleil lo bring their cowardly weapons across tlie ocean, and they
content themselves with a species of
tuiall dagger, crude but effeetive.aml not

THE BEST WAY TO OBTAIN REST.
It Should B. Taken Prone on . Mattress
with No rillow.
"In the progressiva tendencies of the
American people," said a physician to a
reporter, "tho subject of proper rest
pliyi a very small part,
"The Idea seems to prevail among them
that thil matter la subservient to all else
—that It may be tnkeu nt nny time and
In almost any manner, provided there Is
nothing more Important to do.
"Only thii morning a lady consulted
Dl In regard to her health, complaining
ot t tired feeling, being scarcely able to
attend to her duties, and all that.
, "I diagnosed the caic, but could dli-
sorer no symptom of diiease. She was
•Imp)}' uttering from want of proper
Hit. .Slss.,.. ..,,,..       ....
"I told her what troubled her and no
doubt site went away convinced that I did
uot understand her case.
"A man or woman, particularly the
latter, will become tired, and being firmly
convinced that everything will go wrong
If ihi stops work, builei herself with
some other occupation, or if exhausted,
will throw herself In a chair or upon a
lounge with a book or paper and try to
restore strength In that way. Thii Is uot
rest.  It only create! a longing for it.
"The true way li to II. at full length
upon t mattress, or any equally hard
. silrtiaivifcliig. ao pillow, with arms extended ind eyes elosed.  Dismiss for tbo
time all care and seek only rest.
"Thii will bring to an exhausted body

BODY POUND.
^^M-frftrtorla
Remains of a Humau Body, sniiposcd io
be n Chinaman* round ln the
Swamp below town.
This morniiwt Oonatablo Pearoe waa
informed that the remains of a human
body wero lying in the swamp nnd that
S.illio Mctcalf, nn Indian woman,
could point them out to him. The constable hunted up Sallie and the two
proceeded to the swamp and found tho
remains.' Mr. Coroner Ferris was
notified and with Constable Po.trceand
a representative of Tub Columbian
wont down to view the body. After
leaving the end of the track tlio party
scrambled ovor logs and through brush
for somo distance until the spot was
reached. A first glance showed that
tho flesh had disappeared from tho
trunk of tho body although tho scalp
and some of the hair of the head and
the skin round the leys still remained.
Tho head had evidently been shavon
within a few weeks before di-tith and
this made it almost certain the deceased was a Chinaman. Tho high cheek
bones and peculiar jaw also indicated
the same. The body was lying
in a recmnbont position similar
to that occupied by a person enjoying perfect rest. Ono arm
was bent under the head, while the
other was carelessly thrown out. The
legs were slightly drawn up and the
trunk lay almost flnt on tha ground.
The peculiar part of the sfl'aii- is that
though there was a pile of blankets
close by, the body lay on tho ground
with nothing but decayed leaves under
it. Alongside was an almost new
wooden pail and a two-quart tin oan,
both fresh looking and with vory little
rust or weather stains about thorn. A
pair of boots, tiod together, an almost
new hat and some clothing wus
scattered round about. Mr. Moresby, who arrived while the re*
mains were being examined, immediately pronounced them to be
those of a Chinaman who had
probably been sick and had been carried to the Bpot by his countrymen and
left there to die. Capt, Peele thinks
death must have occurred some months
ago, Mr. Ferris has decided to hold
an inquest which wilt take place either
to-night or to-morrow morning.
Still Another liiMnn.c
Another instance of the Canadian
Pacific Railway's discrimination against
Kew Westminster has come to light
and adds to tho many evidences already
received of the unfair treatment being
meted out to us. Mr. Jaqucs of this
city while returning from Illecillewaet
a few days ago overheard a conversation between some lady passengers and
the conductor of the train. The ladies
wished to go to Nanaimo by the shortest route and had been told that the
steamer from Westminster was the
most direct. The conductor a'asu'fed
them that thoy would have to go to
Vancouver first, from there to Victoria
and thence by rail to Nanaimo. Mr.
Jaques informed tho ladies they could
leave Westminster tho next morning
(Wednesday) and go direct to Nanaimo by steamer at a much less cost than
by Vancouver and Victoria, but
they, thinking the conductor should
be better posted followed his advice.
The conductor also kindly changed the
chocks on the ladies' trunks from
Westminster to Vancouver, thus occasioning them additional trouble as
well as expense.
Indian Schools In British Columbia.
Under tho vote of last session four
industrial schools are to be established
iu British Columbia for the instruction
of the Indian population in the peaceful arts. One will be located on Vanoouver island, and the other three on
the mainland, at Kamloops, Motla*
kahtla and Kootenay respectively.
The appropriation for the first three
is $5,750 each, $2,500 to be spent on
buildings, aud the balance for the
maintenance of a school of twenty-five
pupils at an estimated annual cost of
$130 per head. For the Kootenay
Bchool a larger sum, $8,500, was ap*
propriated, owing to the isolation of
its location on St. Mary's reserve, $4,-
500.buildings and $4000 for the maintenance and tuition of 30 pupils. ICup-
er island, off Chemainus, has been
chosen as tho site for the island school.
The location is on Telegraph harbor,
facing Chemainus, with a considerable
area of agricultural land adjacent, plenty of timber, woll sheltered and with
a bountiful water supply. On the
northern end of the island is a village
containing about 300 Penelakut Indians. The Chemainus Indians are at
the mouth of the river, which is a short
distance from the Cuwichan and Oyster
Bay Indians and within oasy roach of
Nanaimo. Nineteen hundred Indians
are within a radius of 50 miles from
the school. At Metlakahtla, tho old
schoolhouse is being refitted for tho
purpose of an industrial school, und
Agent Todd nt the present time has a
number of men at work. The Bite at
Metlakahtla has become famous, and
there can be no question that its control location is very favorable for the
success of the school. The Indians of
Naas, Skeena and thoso in its immediate vicinity are within easy reach of
Metlakahtla. The site for the school
for tho Kamloops Indians is situated
on the reserve, opposite town, two
miles from the mouth of the north
Thompson river. This location is also
central, being convenient for the north
and south Thompson Indians in tho
Oksnagon district, eto. The site for
the Kootenay school possesses simitar
advantages in point of convenience and
location, on St. Mary's reserve, which
abounds in good agricultural land, and [
plenty of water for irrigation purposes,

Dr, Cooper informed tho court that
Mr. Taylor, of Eberti & Taylor, hii
couniel, had not returned from the
east ai expected and he wai therefore
unablo to ptoceed with tbe eue. He
wiihed an adjournment till Friday,
when, if Mr. Taylor had not returned,
he would employ other counsel and
proceed with the oue.
Mr. McGillivray, one of tho jurors,
appeared before the bar and said ho
did not consider it fair to be brought
such a distunco with no results and no
security for time lost and expenses incurred.
Bis lordship said the jury would receive tho fees allowed by law. Tie
thought it was too bad that farmers
should be brought such a distance to
no purpose. It was a great hardship
and should bo remedied. Hia lordship
informed Dr. Cooper he would have to
pay the expenses of the jurors to which
the dootor expressed his willingness.
Mr. McColl suggested that the adjournment be made till Tuesday next,
whioh was agreed to by the court.
The jury roll waa called and only 10
of the 20 summoned answered to their
names. His lordship ordered that
summonses bo sent to those who failed
to answer to their names, to appear
before him and show good cauae for
their non appearance.

TEE KAISER AT HOME.
Rome, Oot. 15.—The pope wat pret
ent during tho visit of Count Herbert
Biimarek to Cardinal Ralpolla when
the visitor emphatically declared that
the exitting treaties between Germany
md Italy did not admit tho possibility
of any territorial claim in favor of the
papacy. The Kaiser invited Signor!
Crispi, Viali and Boslli to take lunch
with him to-day and engaged them in
protracted conversation. The German
residents of Rome presented the em J
peror with an addreu of welcome.
Thia afternoon the emperor and his
suite paid a visit to tho Pantheon and
afterwards visited the lomb of King
Victor Emanuel, The populace were
greatly pleased at this mark of respect
to the memory of their dead king and
wildly cheered the kaiier upon his return to tho Quirinal. In tho evening
the emperor gave n reception to the
Italian military and naval officers.
The Kaiser presented the Pupo with a
J'ewelled snuff-box nu (ho occasion of
lis visit to tho Vatican. During the
interview between the Popo and the
Kaiser, Prince Henry uf Prussia arrived 20 minutes earlier than he was
expected. The inonseignor in waiting
hesitated about admitting him to the
preaenco of tho Pope, but Count Herbert Bismarck deolarod that a Prussian Prinoe must not be kept waiting
in an ante room, and ho wu admitted.
It was stated that the Popo, owing to
the brevity of the interview, had not
time to lay ill he wished, and is therefore dissatisfied and disappointed, it
it alio laid that the emperor expressed
to hia brother the wish that he would
come te the purpose at once and
