Thii. Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing-In it from the following
FACTS:-
Tht Securiijr oflerad to policy holders is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business tn Canada,
It has no schemes of Insurance, butthe
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot ho misled as to their contracts.
Its statements to the public can be reml-
lly understood, its cash statement showing erery Item of Inpome and how expended,
Its position lsaacertaf ned nnnually from
a detailed valuation In which every Hem
of liability Is included.     .......
Us progress has been Unexampled In
tha history of insurance In Canada. -
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forf el table after two years'
existence.
Its profits are distributed upon an equitable oasis.' The profits to one class of
pulley holders are not lessened to give
lararer profits to any other class, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is said that tlio experiment of
stocking Tasuianian river with salmon, by tlio importation and hatching of pva, is showing "ratifying results, A Urge salmon is caught
occasionally, ami hopes arc cuter-
Uiinod that in a few years there will
be quite a respectable supply of the
fish.
Heir von Bulow has left England
in high dndgeon, Hii piano recitals were not appreciated in that
country. He kept up his courage
until an English newspaper remarked that Great Britain manted but
little Herr Bulow. Then he exclaimed, "Mcin Gott!" and disappeared,        i
In the shape of jubilee coins, and S
pound and two pound gold pieces,
nearly a million sterling--which,
roughly, is $5,000,000—is itowed
away in the cabinets of ouriosity
collectors in Britain. It would tax*
a heap of curiosity to induce tu to
withdraw $5,000,000 from circulation—we're too patriotic to do it, sir.
An instrument called the osteotome has been invented as an improvement over the tedious and
clumsy surgical method of cutting
through bones by means of saws and
chisels. It ia practically a circular
saw revolved at a very high speed
by. an electric motor. An ingeniously devised shield, which passes
around the bone to be opeiated upon
protects the surrounding flesh from
injury.
An eastern exchange remarks: —
The Montreal Herald lays of a con
temporary: *Tornby fury at tbe
Spectacle of the Oaitort tupporting
Mr. Mercier, a,nd cheered for a moment by the hope that thii turnpike
falsehood might be true, and of importance, the Gazette metaphorically
grinds its teeth at the liberal party."
To be "torn by fury-" and to ''grind
its teeth" and yet to put on at the
same time a "cheerful" aspect in the
hope that "a falsehood may be true,"
is a condition rare in newspaper experience. Prohaps the Herald will
explain how it is accomplished 1
The new German Emperor ii
credited with blurting out, in an unpremeditated speech, the other day,
that millions of Germans were ready
to die rather than surrender Aliace.
The speech will rankle in the minds
of Frenchmen, and will neutralise
columns of studied conciliation.
Europe is groaning under the burden
of huge war preparations, and these
are necessary chiefly because of the
h.te and greed of nations. It is all
very well to talk of the ambition of
rulers—doubtless that ii a factor in
tb. problem, but if tbe nation, cultivated'peace and good will, their
rulers would speedily follow suit
Ounard-—Inman—White Star—
Guibn—all determined to have the
most comfortable, th. most inngni6-
ccnt, but above all, the fattest Atlantic liners. The. enormous traffic
has developed thia competition, and
the competition has evolved a clan
of steamer which' by comparison
with those deemed first-olasi, uy,
twenty years ago, shows something
of the progress naval architecture
has made. A five day passage is
now tlie aim of tho companies, and
tlie White Star people, although
they do not say much, let it bo understood that great thing, mny be
looked for from their two new bouts
now fiiiiiij; into shape at Hnrlnn ,d
Wolfe's yards in Belfast.
There was a little "twisting of the
lion's tail" in the IF. ij. congress the
other day, but it was of a very good
humored kind, and appears to have
been intended more as poking fun
at their own fire-enters than as expressing any hostile sentiment in the
speakers. One gentleman asserted
that New York state could take
care of Canada, whereupon auotlter
promptly put in a request to have
the C.P.R. brought to book. Other
remarks of a similar character followed, and the affair degenerated
into a chaffing match—all of which
means Unit it would take a good deal
of very wrongheaded blundering on
both sides to set the two great English speaking nation! by the oars to
any serious extent,

McCourt, of the sixth auditor's ultice,
has received a letter from Mrs. Par-
noil in which she makes a vigorous appeal tc all the friends of homo rule for
Ireland who may possess any letters or
evidence useful to ber son's defence
from the attack, of tbe London Times
to forward the same to Mrs. Parnell,
Iromidei Park,Bordentown, New Jer-
ley. In the letter ihe ntyi: "But
now, to my anguish, my wite, kind
and noble son Charles is at last exposed
to heavy expenses of a trill, which
raiy end like that of Smith O'Brien's,
in the confiscation of his property, for

mus to cut off hii own means. God
grant that nothing worse may be their
designs."

Two eastern •xc!iuiigo*--tli. To-,

Coittvierciiil— have been kind enough
to compliment the pr-ss of British'
Columbia in general terms on the
unanimity with which they stick up
(or their own country. On behalf
ot tlie press of B. C. we would
thank those journals for their good
opinion! publicly expressed, and
would alio take thia opportunity to
commend th. broad-spirited patriotism displayed by both our Toronto
and Winnipeg cotetnporarios. A
noticemblo feature of both of these
journal! is the intelligent interest
they manifest in all parti of the
Dominion, British Columbia coming
in lor a large share of notice, and a
general hopeful and patriotic tone as
to the resources and future of our
vaitand united Dominion. Much
good may be augured for th. com
mon-wealth a tlarge from such an
attitude being taken by the press of
the Dominion. Differences may and
do exist on many matters of both a
local and federal nature, and conflicting interests there are without
doubt; but so long as these are not
suffered to interfere with a friendly
reciprocity of feeling and expression
between the various local interests
and between the different provinces
composing the Dominion, ho apprehensions lot tbe growth of an undue
sectionalism needbo felt. The press
can do much in taking the lead and
giving the cue in this matter, and
appearances indicate that the press,
ns a whole, both provincial and Dominion, will not be found abusing
its influential position.
The  Monetary   Times (Toronto)
says:   " After a trial of some years
the attempt to keep beer out of the
Northwest is given up.   Light beer,
of the strength' of fodr per cent  alcohol, is now to be allowed admittance.    Permits to receive liquor
hive always been in vogue; but the
smuggler has been the chief agent of
supply.    Liquor has, through his
agency, been run into the Northwest in quantities equal to any existing    demand.    -The   smuggled
whiikey ii fdr the most part of the
wont quality. Drinking habits have
various degrees of danger, according
to the nature of the drink used.
There are those who believe that if
light beer can be made to take the
place of whiikey, a great gain will
be made; and this accounts for the
present experiment.   A form of abstinence has hitherto been imposed
on the people of  the Northwest;
they have not pronounced upon the1
question  themselves,   though   the
time must soon come when they will
be entitled to do so.   If they decide
for prohibition, they can have it,
but it cannot be forced upon them
from tbe otttside."    Our friends of
of the Northwest will be very lucky
if they are allowed to stop at " light
beer."   Thia trill probably prove to
be the thin edge of the wedge, or,
more properly, the tint breach in the
dyke, which will naturally lead to a
delnge of strong drinks.     It would
appear, however, that the so-called
prohibition in the Northwest territories has not worked latiifactorily,
but hai beon constantly Und systematically violated, so that less regret
will be felt that the farce has been
terminated.     The liquor  question
everywhere must depend for its final
and satisfactory solution on the education of the manes—and particularly the rising generation—in coin-
mon-iense, scientific and   religious
truths.   As Rev. Father Conaty, of
Massachusetts, said in a recent address to the Catholic Total Abstinence Union of America (published
in thil paper last Saturday):   " The
moat effective prohibitory law is that
observed by men who are resolved
not to enter the saloon, for this resolution would molt effectively wipe
it out of existence."

now when people are coming to the
country who want to cultivate, they
must either pay tho exorbitant price
asked, or go without. It is the |
sumo, even more set. witli business
city lots. The owners will neitlu*
build nor sell for a rehsangble price,
and the great danger is that prosperity will be arrested through mere
insatiable greed. We don't mean to
say that these valuable property
owners aro sinners above all others
for holding on to terra lirnm until
they can squeeze all its supposed
value into their'.own pockets, for,
very likely, -/ere we in their steads,
we might be very much tompted to
follow suit. Thu weakness is com
mon to human nature; but for tbe
lake of general good wo would advise those who own such property
not to hold on too long. Of this
folly thero are many examples, and
what has happened in such cases
may happen again. There is no better time to make hay than when the

The Victoria press has been calling attention lately to Beveral revolting instances of cruelty to animals—principally horses, of course,
as these useful and frequently ill-
used  servants  arid companions of
man are more subjected by circumstances to the whims and tempers of
brutal  masters than   any Other of
the domestic animals,   Our cotem-
poruries are   recommending,   very
properly, that an association for the
prevention   of cruelty to   animals
should be organized in the capital.:
This  would   be,   of  course, but u
branch of a world-wide organization,
that aims everywhere to repress and
punish wanton ubuse and mnl-treat-
ment of the dumb creatures that
contribute so materially to the comfort and convenience of tbe " lords
of creation," as well as to exercise 11
wholesome surveillance over the numerous  instances   of   " man's   inhumanity to man," which the poet
truthfully adds,  " makes countless
thousands mourn."   Human nature
is much the same everywhere, und
there can be no doubt that wherever
man is congregated in considerable
numbers, cruelty and brutality—-or
at least criminal thoughtlessness and
indifference—will   crop   out,   and
somebody or something must suffer,
however innocent  and   inoffensive
they may be. These beneficent societies should be established in all our
cities    and     towns,     at     least,
for, as a Victoria cotemporary re-
| marks in this connection, " What's
everybody's  business   is   nobody's
business," and without such organizations very little effective protest
is likely to be made against either
thoughtless or deliberate inhumanity.   Even our own city, which can
compare favorably with any oity of
its size in the general good behavior
of its citizens,  would  not   bo the
worse of a little watching in this
respect   A communication in this
paper the other day called attention
to one phase of "cruelty to animals,"
whereby horses were subjected to
needless hardship owing to the condition  of a  certain   street at tho
lower end of th. city.   Last Friday,
too,   there   wai  a oaso before the
police court in thii city, the chsrge
being " furious driving and cruelty
to animals."   The case, as our readers will remember, was discharged
for lack of positive evidence.   It ii
quite likely that there are a number
of cases properly belonging to the
province of a " society for the prevention of cruelty to animals" that
never come to light now at a 11, "The
righteous man  is merciful   to bis
beast," saith the scripture;   but so
long as there is quite a percentage of
men who lay no claim whatever to
" righteousness," somebody's "beast"
is going to get left—if the " brutes "
are not looked after.

remedy In various parts of the world. It
is, perhaps, the molt popular cure of all

In Northumberland, Devonshire and
Lancashire, tho beef should be stolen, and
In Deux Sevres, two pieces must bo used,

is not buried,but mus: be carefully nailed

FOR AND AGAINST SMOKING.

There are some things that may be considered as establlebnl against the smoke
habit. It ts expensive, Nut ns expensive'
as it used to be, for inuau can get n cigar I
that is not altogether: rank for about one-
half tlie former priorf of ii fair oigar. If
the smoker will use a pipe, the expense is
not considerable.
The smoke habit la offensive to many
Who do .not smoke, which is a strong
point against it. it is injurious to the
yountfaudto'some'tvlior.rj not young,
It is a selfish and unsocial liabit, sluee
womenare excluded.from its pleasures.

hiioitwheruitisiioti.ijiirioiis tu health,
and whoarecouaidcratc of the fecliugsof
others, smoking is a very good thing Indeed. In a fretful world, where'anxioua
cares consume tho n,|«ond.force, tho
smoke is a solace, a timely 'sWlatlvo, the
"pipe of peace" nud rest, It induces
heart depression, oven lit healthy men,
'but this Is only temporary with most, thi
effect of excessive indulgence, aud disappears when the smoker becomes moderate, ..   , ' .
For the young this advice is wholesome:     Sfl^.
Until the age of tweuly-ono   , i
All forms of-smoking yuu must shun;. '
It stunts the growth, cxliaiu-ts. the-purse,
Ami leads to evils that arc worse,
We aro quite confident that this age
was selected for rhyming purposes: One
should not be a smoker before thirty-five
or forty.. And then only on coudltlou
that smoking is iu fuct u solace and not *
stimulant.
Ouo very eminent English clergyman
finds fault with smoking only because it
"accentuates the separation of the sexes,
aud so.foster, tho coarser and more selfish side ot men's habits." He declare!
that the only other alternative ia that the
"ladies should smoke as. freely as men
do." And he expects that we shall come
to this,   -.-w, —..-i.. .,.«. .., .
Unfortunately the finer organization ot
women is not calculated to bearimok-
fng. It would be mora apt to itimuliti
and excite than to soothe women. But
for women beyond middle life—well, they
wuuldflud a great deal of solid comfort
lusmoklug. A good smoke ie about the
best substitute- for the bloom of youth
when that is lost.

NOTES ON CELERY.
What Cultivation Haa Pone  for This
|       - Plant-Some of Its Varlatlaa,
Wild celery has a wide range. It extend, from Sweden to Algeria, Egypt,
Abyssinia, ondiu Asia from tho Caucasus
to Beloochiltan,and the mouutaiusof British India. It grows in ditches aad other'
damp places, and In Europe it is rank,
coarse, aud somewhat poisonous.
Professor Gray calls it a "strong scented, acrid, if not poisonous plant, of the
coast of Europe,- of -which the variety,
dulco, garden celery.is rendered bland,aud
the base of the leaf stalks enlarged. Succulent and edible when blanched, through
long cultivation."
One variety of cultivated celery, the
celerloc, is raised-only for the root or base
of the leaves, which becomes a white
solid bulb.- : This is more commonly
called turhtp-rooted celery, and differs
more widely than the other from wild
celery.
Tbe larger plant, also called smellage,
is kin to celery aud botanicallyisa ape-

In praise of Ayer'a Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that, but tor its use, I
should long since hare died from lunp
troubles.—E. Bragdon, FalcStinc, Tex.
. About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, which deprived
me of Bleep ana rest. I had used various cough balsams and expectorants,
without obtaining relief. A friend advised me to try ><
Ayer's Cherry Pectoral.
I did so, and am happy to say that it
helped me at once, Sy continued use
this medicine cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—Mrs. B.
Coburn, 18 Second st., Lowell, Mass.
I liave .Wed Ayer's Cherry Pectoral
(or over a year, and sincerely believe I
should have, been in my grave, had it
not been for this medicine. Jt has cured
me of a dangerous affect ion of tho lungs,
for which I had almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.---]), A. JIcMullen,
Windsor, Province 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 the remedies they
prescribed, but failed to obtain relief
nti) I began using Ayer's Cherry Pec-

Kootenay t'anal.
Work ou the canal through Canal
Flat connecting the Upper Colombia)
lake and Kootenay river ii progressing
well. Tho heaviest portion of the excavation, that on the upper lovel fron,
the lock to the Kootenay river,' will be
finished by Siturduy evening next.
The balance of the work' will then consist of the look aud some dredging.
The whole scheme will be finished
about the last of September. The average width of the canal is thirty-five
feet, and the distance between the two
waters is about ono mile and a half.
The depth of water in the upper level,
will be six feet, and the surface level
will be nine feet. The depth of water
in the lock below, will be about 10 feet.
Thii will permit of light draught steamers pining from the lake to Kootenay river. Before, this will be productive of any benefit it will be necessary
to spend some money in removing
snags and other obstructions for about
eight miles on Kootenay; river, which
would then furnish good navigation to
below the boundary line. Between tho
two lakes thero nre also some obstructions to be removed and dredging to
be done. This would furnish navigation from Golden fur light steamers
clear through to the boundary line.—

A Remarkable Mllili low.
The Holstein-Friesian cow, "Amazonia No. 8068, H.H.B.," property of
B. N. L. Davis, of Mt. Vemon, W.T.,
hu just completed a most remarkable
milk record for one month. She
calved July 4th; we began the milk
test July 5th, and from the 5th of July
to the loth she gave an average of 09
lbs. of milk a day, or 090 Ihs in 10
days. From July 15th to the 25th
she gave in average of 70 lbs. of milk
per day, or 700 lbs. in 10 days. On
the 25th day of July she gave 74 lbs.
of milk; on tho 26th, 75 lbs.; 27th, 74;
28th, 761; 29th, 76; 30th, 781; 31st,
7fi; let "Aug., 74; 2nd, 79i; 3rd, 80;
4th, 80{. A total yield in 11 days cf
843| lbs of milk, and a grand total
yield of 2,233} lbs. of milk in one
month from July 5th to Aug. 5th.
In order to test the milk for butter
we set it separately for seven days,
and from the cream of which we made
10} lbs. of firm gilt-edged buttor—an
average of 2 lbs. 5 oz. per day. Owing
to the hot weather and our manner of
aetting milk (in common tin pans) fully
15 per cent, of cream was Inst; und
from that fact wu did not continue tho
butter test during the month. We
believe that Amazonia il fully capable
of producing 3 lbs. Of butter daily.
Tin-testa as given above seem almost incredible when wo consider that the
weight of her milk for two days il equal
to tho weight of an avorage sized man;
in 10 days she gave her own weight in
milk, aud in one month as much as a
span of horses would draw. Witnesses
who saw the cow milked will vouch for
the accuracy of the statement! above
given. During the test she was milked
twice daily. For the first 20 days she
had only the same care and food of
other cows of the herd—turned out on
the range during the day aud turned
into the pasture at nightjed twice daily
on three quarts ground oat., but during
the last 11 days of the tost she was
turned on good grass and given \\ gallons of ohop at a feed. Amazonia is 5
years old; she is u perfect type of this
unrivalled breed of cattle. She was
bred by W. Buiz Bergen, of North
Holland; imported by Geo. K. Brown
& Co. Her aire it the gnat Nethor-
land bull "Cor N.H.B., No. 122," the
district bull of Bergen, and her dam,
Amazonia, a great milker, descended
from a Netherland family noted for
their deep milking qualities for generations. In our herd of 53 head of
purebred registered ITolstoin Friesinroi,
Amazonia is queen.
Four cowi of our herd have averaged 67 lbi. of milk per day; 0 cows
havo given 60 lbs. una upward in one
day. From our experience we believe
that in the four essentials, for human
food, viz: beef, milk, butter and cheese,
fhey are unrivalled by any brood.

toutionand the room wu filled with
people, Mr. Moresby watched the
case for the crown and Messrs. Cor-
bould Ac McOoll appeared for the defense. When the prisoner was placed
in the box he did not appear (o feel
.particularly bad, nnd .was quite free
from nervousness during the whole
time tho witnesses wore being examined. Cotea had been drinking very
hard of late, and though a good workman and doing a good business ho fuilcd
to furnish his wifo with sufficient money fur household expenses, and she was
forced to lake In washing iu order to
keep body and soul together. Although
Cotea was thoughtless and unkind his
wifo wns faithful and patient. Thia
morning she waa in court during the
entire proceedings, at. the close of
which sho had n tuucltiug interview
with her guilty husband.
Wm. J. Fansot sworn, said:
Am a lumberman; I remember the
affair on Saturday; it was at the Merchants Hotel. Baskett and Cotea had
a scuffle in the hotel and again ou the
Btreet. Basket made a pasB at Cotea
with his open hand which the latter
feuded and struck back knocking Baskett down. The prisoner then kicked
Bukett about the head but tho exact
spot I cannot say; I can't Bay he kicked
Baskett more than once; after Baskett
waa knocked down and .kicked he never
moved; he'fell face downwards; with
Coroner Ferris I felt Baskett's heart and
found it palpitating. To a juryman:
They had been quarreling for 15 minutes; I don't know tbe cause of the
dispute.
David S.Gray: I am a butcher; I
wu near Townsend'» stable on Columbia street and saw two mon quarreling
opposite the Merchants Hotel and wont
over there. Ono of the mon nt the
prisoner, the other I didn't know; they
stopped quarreling and went into the
hotel'and took a drink; afterward!
they began talking in a language I did
not understand and then commenced
fighting again; they did not appear to
hurt each othor. When Mr. Brewster's
back was turned Cotea struck Bukett
and then they were put out of the saloon and told they could not quarrel
there; Baskett scemod to be the aggressor and triod to make Cotea tight,
and when the tight did commence he
didn't seem able to defend himself. I
and some others wero standing at tho
corner of the hotel; Baskett came up
and said he would make Cotea fight;
he then walked down to whore Cotea
was standing nt a door; prisoner started fi.r the saloon nnd Baskett wont
alongside and give him a blow with his
elbow in the breast. Cotea then thow
off. his coat and kicked Baskett in the
abdomen. Baskett then fell on his
knees and face to tho ground and remained in that position; Cotea then
wont up and struck Baskett once on
tho head with his fist and then kicked
him on the sido of the hesd; I don't
know that he kicked him more than
once. The prisoner then walked away
and with a few men wont to the saloon
and took a drink; I Btood and looked
at the deceased; ho gave two or three
long breaths and that wu the last move
1 saw him make. To a juryman: Do-
ceased was always trying to pick a
quarrel with the prisoner.
Dr. DeWblf Smith sworn, said: I am
a physician and surgeon; 1 made a post
mortem examination on the body of
Joseph Baskett yesterday morning; the
body was lying in Ihe shed opposite
the court house; when stripped it was
the body of In apparently well-nourished muscular man of about 45 years
of sge; tatoo marks were on both forearms and the inner side of left leg near
the ankle; there were a oouple of old
scars on the left arm near tho shoulder;
there were several marks on the body
whioh looked to have been received
within a few days; near the top of the
occipital bone wu a lump the size of a
large almond the top of which wu cut,
apparently by some dull instrument;
juBt over tho occipital protuberance
there was a similar lump a little larger
in size; the left oir wu much swollen
and discolored; behind and below the
left oar was a. large lump and over the
surface of this lump was a mark about
U inches in length; immediately above
wua smaller lump. I removed tho
scalp und beneath each of tho aforementioned lumpi found considerable
blood congealed; in removing the skull
cap and membranes of the brain the
spaces between the conductions of the
brain were, on the upper surface of the
brain, filled with blood; on removing
the brain a large quantity of blood was
seen extending over almost the whole
base of tho brain and for aome distance
down the spinal canal; there was also
clotted blond in tho four ventricles of
tho brain; I then upened the cavities
of tbe chest and abdomen; the organs
contained therein presented no unusual
features escept that the stomach and
lungs looked as if the man had been
drinking for some time; tho heart vessels were healthy, bladder healthy. In
my opinion the cause of death was the
blond effused on tho brain, brought
there by violence. The liquor drank
by the deceased would not bring the
blood to the brain as in this case. I
think the blow given behind the ear
was the cause of death. It wai impossible to save the deceased's life even
had medical assistance beon on the
spot. It would have been possible for
the man to live half a day aftei receiving such a blow.
James Brewster, sworn, said: lam
manager of the Merchants Hotel; Baskett and Cotea were in the hotel during the afternoon and drinking; they
started to quarrel and I told them no
quarreling was allowed in tho house; I
put Bukett out and told him not to
come in again, as 1 wu sure there
would boa quarrel; he went round to
the front door and came in again; they
quarrelled three times and were put
out; a few minute, hter some one
came in and uid Baskett was dead on
tho street; I think if Basket had left
Cotea ilono there wonld have beon no
row.
Gordon Trodden, sworn, uid: I remember last Saturday aftornoon; I was
down nt the Merchants Exchange; I
saw two men fighting; There is ono of
thorn in thil room now, Cotea. I isw
Cotea kick Baskett about five times;
he kicked him lint on the stomach,
which caused him to fall down; when
Bukett" wai down Oiitea' kicked him
three time, on the held; he did not
touch him my mora after that.
token away. ,,
This closed the evidence and the
jury retired. After an absence of 10
minutes tho jury returned ind rendered
the following verdict: "We find the
deceased camo to hii death by injnriei
inflicted by tbe prieoner Cotea."
The case will como up for a hearing
nt the police court on Wednesday
morning.

Editor Columbian,—I am informed
that yesterday several men, painters,
were at work for aomo hours upon the
public school building, bnt by whoso orders my Informant did not say. The
work, it appears, was upon the old building, and so might just us well have been
done during the holidays, and in any
case could only hare interfered with tho
school sessions for half n day. It would
be interesting to some of your readers to
know whether the trustees nre responsible for this profanation of thu Sabbath,
or whether it is simply another example
of the common and open disregard of the
day for which this province is gaining an
unenviable notoriety.—Yours, etc.,
J. H. White.
New Westminster, Aug. 20, 1888.
[It is matter for regrot tlmt any occasion should have been given by anyone for the remarks made by our correspondent. Tha circumstances, however, were peculiar, and we are told
that the Sabbath work complained of
was done without the knowledge or
consent of the trustees. A comparatively trifling job of kaUomiuiug was
lot to a painter, nnd would easily have
been finished on Saturday evening, but
that some of tlie work, on account of a
mistake in mixing tho colors, had to be
done over again. From what we can
learn, the painter seems to have imagined that it came under the head of
"works of necessity" to have the kal*
Bomining completed before Monday,
and henco tho desecration. While too
much care cannot be exercised in preserving the sauatity of the Sabbath,
we are inclined to believe that the instance referred to by our esteemed
correspondent, although it might and
should have been avoided, was not a
case of regardless and deliberate Sabbath desecration, such as calls for the
severest censure on all concerned.—
