Tlio I'ull Mull Gillette's critioisni
ot Varuell's l'ecunt action in suing

of anxiety lest lie should injure Ilia

The wire says that plans.have
boon prepared at Ottawa for the
fortilicutioii of &quimalt harbor.
The arrangement is such that a hostile fleet1 trying to enter would meet
a Hiking cross lire. But suppose it
didn't want to enter, but simply lay
off and pounded the plan at its leisure. How then?.
Countess Chendon de Brialless,

actress, has got Herself talked about
by a recent balloon trip she' made
with her husband. The cart were
too slow to suit this couple, and so

to their country seat at Epernuy.
What fa*more, they got there safely,
and descended in the grounds of
their chateau before their servants

There is a chance in the Balkan
States for lovers of the bold brigand
to gratify their tastes. They may

contingency must be counted in as
part of the programme. - The outlaws operate in that part of the
country where there are neither
railways nor telegraph, nnd of course
easily manage to be where the police

The editor of the Oiniley, La,,
Mercury, is a Kepublican, but he
has a Democratic wife. A few days
since he attended a base ball game
in dn adjoining town, and while he
was away his wife managed the
{paper, j As a result the Mercury appeared with the following at the
head of the local column: "Cleveland will be re-elected President in
November by an overwhelming majority. The Democratic party will
win because it is right Cleveland
lias made the best .President th.
country has ever had and if every
state in the UmbtfUwbuH elect none
but Democrats there would be lew
stealing and meanness going on."
What occurred when the editor returned home has not been disclosed,
but it may be assumed on general
principles that the woman holds
the fort. ;- w! -;i-
The managers of the Central fair,
whioh open, in Toronto on th. 24th
inst., have inadvertently got themselves into a little tattle. They
procured a colored lithograph for
their postori from a well-known firm
of lithographic printers in Buffalo.
On the apex of each building which
appears in the lithograph a flag staff
with the. stars and stripes (lying
from it, is engraved. The- loyal
peopluof Toronto am groatly ofl'ouaVd
at this, and tho oxplmiation offered
by the Cotuorviitivc organ, .tjiat' tho
managers of tho fair were merely
consulting economy when they procured their cut at Buffalo, fails to
aatisfy them. The bills have been
sadly abused and disfigured wherever shown lii hotel corridors or
other public placet. The people of
Toronto evidently don't fancy being
annexed before their time.
Tin'milk dealers in the vicinity
of Ottawa have formed a combine
and raised the price of milk to 8
cents a quart. People are inclined
to rebel, and the warfare has got
into the columns of the newspapers.
The milkmen are aro reminded that
milk in Toronto is only 5 cents a
quart, and to this the combiners
retort that the cattle of the Toronto
milk dealers are fed on distillery
slops instead of good succulent
grass, hay, and roots, as .are the
cattle on the farms surrounding
Ottawa. }t is probable that the
nhuiulniit rain of the pust tew days
will go a great way towards breaking up the ring.—Mail. Thore is
quite n suspicious "ring" about this
lust sentence. It will not surprise
anybody to hear about a "combine"
in milk. The time-honored custom
of "combining" water with the lacteal
fluid is familiar to everyone.

'   BOLD BRIGANDS.
London, Aug, 16.-A largo portion
of Turkey and-the Balkan States are
infetted with brigantlt, and their number is rapidly growing. These outlawi
are taking advantage of the absence of
railway and telegraphic communication
to become bolder daily, and the consternation of the better class of inhabitants is increasing to such an extent
that many of them are leaving their
homes and taking refuge in the larger
towns. Recently a band of brigands
invaded St. Roumtnit, a small town,
and captured the.daughter of a peasant, • young girl, famed in that locality
for her beauty. The chief of the band,
wishing to make the girl his wife, had
a mock marriage ceremony performed,
one of the band personating' a priest.
He tent a messenger to the village

1ne0onetarf,Times, ef Torontti,
Oi,t.,jn a recent issue, makes the
forto-wing remsrks abotit the sea
filheriesef thVprovince: "A trial
of our Paoific coast fisheries, by eastern fishermen, was resolved upon
last year, :liut was only partially
made, A trip to the black-coil
banks had to bo postponed for want
of a suitable vessel, u deficiency that
will wool ko suuplied. 'Che experi-
luentptoved-the richness of the hali
but fishery,'BOiQOO lbs. of that fish
having taeu taken by tho schooner
Mollis Aclaiun. The coast line of
the northern part of British Columbia back to the mountains, having been adjudged to Russia, when
ihe wei the owner of Alaska, now
belongs to the United States, There,
our fishermen will have to observe
the three-mite limit; but on the
southern part of British Columbia
and around Vancouver and Queen
Charlotte's islands, we have an extensive, and valuable shore-fishery,
which is likely to prove a rich mine
of wealth."
In another column we publish an
extract from the Victoria Times
of the Hth inst, under the heading
"A Tijttle Explanation." The heading is ours. ! The Times published
the alleged interview with Senator
Oanfield without any explanation.
There-is a little seuuelto the rather
tardy publication by tho Times of
this interview, which occurred in
the Drinrd hotel at Victoria a full
week ago. The readers of Till! Co-
LiMBiAN need hardly be told what
it is. A oursory perusual of the interview in question shows that this
is the suppressed and truthful account of the. interview between the
Times representative and the " promoters of tho Westminster Southern
Railway," for which the Times substituted the other day a slightly garbled-editorial comment, reflecting on
The. Columbian. This departure
from thajnthef rectitude on the part
of theriniM-led astray our rather
susceptible friend of the News, and
made it necessary for Tan Columbian to take both papers to task,
which was done in a recent issue.
We congratulate our Victoria co-
temporary upon possessing a conscience, which, if it is a little sluggish., .appears to work all right when
the proper stimulus is applied. The
interview as published at length
confirm! the statements made editorially the other, day in this paper,
concerning the misrepresentation of
the Timti and the News to the effect
that the "promoters of the Westminster Southern Railway " had
stated that "The Columbian had of
late shown great hostility the 0. P.
R." A fine opportunity is now of
"fared, which the News should not
miss, of doing the graceful thing
and talking back what it said on the
strength of the Times'faux pus.
Talk about holding the fort, daring heroism, thrilling bravery, io.!

littlo house,by-getting together a few,
logs and covering them with her

improvised cabin, with no protection
but God's watchful care, she slept
with her three little ones. And
while she slept tht! man built u butter uabiu than hers, iiml iu tlie morning came with u tuam and ploughed
around hor cabin. She resolutely
walked after him und planted the
ground as he ploughed. Again he
left, declaring lie "would come back
and get her out of that." She then,
with the help of her oldest l»y,
dragged poles and branches from the
mountain side and built a fence,
around the ploughed ground. True
to his woitl her persecutor came
back, bringing with him a mob of
men of his own type tQ.help him, as
against this one lone. woman and
her babes. She, with all the ] dignity of a major of an army, commanded a halt and ordered the men not
to come within her enclosure. They
looked on in amazement; evidently
she was not the kind of woman they
had been in the habit of dealing
with. They saw in her face an. assurance of the justice of her. cause
that could not be shakon—a spirit
that could not be broken—a resolution as steadfast ns the mountains
of bee chosen home. And they left
and troubled her no tiihre. And
there, by unspeakable labor, in iliu
seclusion of her honlc for which sho
fought so bravely, she holds her land
and supports her little family.   ,

The question of education is one
which is agitating the whole civil-
Wetland seiui-eivilited world. According to an exchange, while many
thoughtful men in tlie United States
are advocating a return to the voluntary system of private schools as:
a means of escape from the evils
that >avc resulted from the combination of politics, and education, the
' govoriiiiiuni. of India has, adopted a
resdutioftof tlie very opposite character, ;froui which the:most desirable
results,are,expected to accrue to the
cause of education in Hindustan,
From time ioimemorial every native
Indian'village has had its private
school, though not even the most
devout believer in Arnau superiority
could,honestly claim a high place for
the kind and extent of the instruction received by:tlie pupils in these
primitive seminaries, Howeverdike
so-many other features of the old
civilization of India, the private
school seems likely soon to become
a thing of the past; the resolution
adopted by the. government recommends that government schools
be established instead of private
ones, wherevei it may be found possible to do so—which means, of
course, that they shall be established
as rapidly as possible iu every, nook
nnd corner of the vast peninsula. It
>' is further recommended that the ml limit ion staff be greatly increased
and strengthened by the importation «f specialists from Great Britain,: whose principal duties, it may
be assumed, would be to give institution in their Special depart-
ments to the new government
teichere. The question of technical
education is fully dealt with, and it
is strongly urged thtt a beginning
should be made in this direction by
entering at once on an industrial
survey, of each province; Nor is
the subject of moral training omitted, the report proposing that it
should be provided for by a moral
textrtook founded on natural religion. India, as well as Chins and
Japan, which a very short time time
ago were considered at among the
"dark .'places of the earth," are

just look atjjbim," and the mother holds
uji tho tiuyweaturo to iiapat who kisses
and fondles him lovingly.
"Yes, Kate, lie is a pretty baby,-but
Tom was a pretty baby, too, you ft-
member."
"Yes, Tom was a pretty baby^every-
body said so," and she glances across
tho room at a 6unny-Hiced four-year old,
" but gillie ia not tike Tom. Willie i
hair is light, and his eyes," looking
wistfully 44'$ ,*ho: baby's face, -"nro
dnrk,:nnd' so deep, tlmt whoa I look ia
them I am almost afraid, the*,'hare
such t> far-oway light, they sccia toiee
something we cannot." - .
"Oh, nonsense! don't think that.
He'll now up to be a fine fellow. But,
Kate, I wouldn't think eo much about
him, lie's a dear, good, little fellow, but
I wouldn't worship him; it isn't right."
"As if I could help it," the mother
says, reproachfully pressing the slight
form closer and looking into th. dark
eyes yearningly.
A month, passes away, and one day
they stand beside a small, white casket,
within which the pretty baby is sleeping. Ah, the' mother's eyes were iharp,
and when friends said, "What beautiful
bright eyes ho has," the saw the far-
away look mil knew it as the light that
never was on land or sea.
"Oh.iijiohn, John!" she moaned, "I
knew he wasn't long ;'or .ihit Twald. I
coilld see it in his eyes. Oh, my pretty
baby I"
"Yes, dear, you. wore right," lays
papa, and there is a quiver ia the firm
voice; "if it bad'plessed God to have
lajf liinijwith'usi.irj! would hare cai-'ed-
for biirrtliatest wo'cbul-.l, but we mu?!,

Yqrsjpass 'on. Other babies ore
bora.- They aro all pretty babies, every
ono w«ho sees theuvsaytthat, but.none
are like tho baby with the far-away look.
As they grow up they love to gather

went to live with Go'd. '    i>r, 1
And, when with childish curic.ily
they open the Biblo to look lit: the pictures, and find between tlio loaves a tiny
tvjep of hair tied with a white satin ribbon, they touch it reverently and whisper beneath their breath, "The pretty
baby."        .,
Years etill pass on.- Tho children
grow to be sturdy men and women, and
as the mother watches them, sho some-
. times thinks, "If he had lived he would
havo been such a beautiful man," and
LIicu she emiles and it.glad that in
Heaven there is no tfmc, raid no matter
how tho others may chiuigo beiaiUU

Causes the Stomach and Bowels to become disordered, and the whole system
to suffer from debility.- In all such
cases Ayer'i fills give prompt relief.
. After much suffering front 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 uso
keeps me in aperfectly healthy condi-
tion—Ralph Weeman, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years igo I suffered from
a torpid liver, whioh was restored to
healthy action by taking. Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I nave never been without them. They regulate the bowels,
•ssist digestion, and increase tho appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.

Hill for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Liver, aud Dyspepsia, for eighteen months. My skin

Khe, was pale und emaciated.: A few

The Methodist social last evening at

the city band inarched down Columbia,
street playing n lively march, which
had the- effect of attracting a largo
number of people iu the direction of
the hall and finally inside. A well-
selected programme was successfully
rendered and much enjoyed by the
audience. The icecream and other
refreshments, provided by the ladies,
were tho chief centre of attraction,
whioh was probably owing to the warm
weather and tho attractive young ladies
who looked after tho dispensing counter. The social netted u larger profit
than was expected.

It behooves Victorians to be on the
lookout for confidence men and sharpers who will bo in the city to-day. A,
crowd of BUch gentry usually follow lathe train of circuses, and the gang
travelling with Sells' circus are said to
be an unusually hard lot, whose business it is to fleece the unwary, and
who generally carry a supply of counterfeit money. They have no connection with the circus, and a word iii
season m.y serve to wtin our reader,
to be prepared for their advances. —'

buk are probably too wide-awake to
be "taken in" by anybody, and We
publish the above merely to give them

Various causes are assigned for the

arise from any inferiority in the article

Typical Tented th.lv-
Solls Brother's Throe Kim, Circus,
Elevated Stage, Royal Roman Hippodrome and Five Continent Menagerie.
It ii not alone the oldeat of our readers
who can remember the "Circui and
Menagerie" as periodically exhibited
not so many years back. A company
of fifty or, at the most, sixty people
wai contidered tt being a phenomenally large one, and if the diameter of
the canvas reached one hundred feet,
"the wonder was and still the wonder
grew." There are more people employed as advertisers, agents, billposters, etc.,.ahead of the show of th.
present day thin constituted the entire
company—performers, grooms, hostlers, canvasmeh and agents of the not
very remote period of which we are
speaking. Yet the tented exhibitions
of the present day ale graded in their
dimensions as well as in their merits
and attractions. Among the largest,
ns well bb tho best, shows now travelling is that of the Sells Brotheis, whioh
is announced to exhibit in this city at
an early date. It presents in combination a circus of three rings, in
which are simultaneously pretented
sensational snd attractive gyinantstio,
ci|Uestriiiti and athletic feats and features and an elevated stage for exclusive specialties. Tlio main pavil-
lion is an enormous olipso, twu hundred by one hundred feet in dimension,
intide of which it an iniuicnie track
devoted to the tports and porils of the
hippodrome, consistiui; uf Roman
chariot races, liberty races, standing
races, steeple chases and jockey races.
Attached to and -connected with this
huge tent is another of equally formidable dimensions, which enclose perhaps the largest, lis well as the most
interesting, collection of living wild
animals ever exhibited. The show
will be in New Westminster to morrow, Friday, Aug. 17.
"      A Utile KX.fl.MU..
Senator Oanfield, of Whatcom, the
original promoter and tht life and soul
of the Ne» Westminste Southern &
Belingham Bay railway enterprise,
was interviewed by a representative of
the Times while in the city. The
scribe' asked for a short interview,
which request wa. cheerfully complied
with by the genial and butinots like
senator.      ■   ,.
Reporter—Itlhere really anything in
th. report that you are going to bring
a libel rait against The Columbian 1
Senator CanCeld—The report about
the libel suit ia all a mistake. The
Columbian has been the constant
friend of our enterprise from tho very
beginning,, end no luch suit has ever
been, contemplated for a moment
An anonymous writer, "Civil," got a
letter inserted in its issue of the 7th
Inst, which insinutted rather than reflected againtt the financial standing
of tho firm of C. M.Sheafe £Oo., of
which I am a member. At the public
meeting st New .Westminster that
I evening my attention wis called to the
letter in such u way that, I felt compelled to notice it, and the next cdilhrn
of the paper cuniunod a retraction
from "Ciris," and a very severe editorial comment upon the libellous let
tar. So there the matter rests. I Bee
no occasion for any lawsuit, and none
for auy combination of newspapers on
your or any other side of the line for
the purpose of detanee againtt libel
suits. In my business experience of
thirty years I have never had occasion
to quarrel with your fraternity and I
hope none will trite. .
Reporter—Tho public would like to
know your attitude to the C.P.R.
SenaUirCatiliald—I note that In one
of your editorials t remark that the
tendettoy of the new movement seemed
to be autsgoiiistic to tho Canadian Pacific Railway, mid tlio further conclusion that the new line could not "long
remain independent of either one or
the other of the two groat transcontinental railways." The first part of
this statement ia incorrect. There is
no hostility on our part, and no engagement anywhere which is hostile to
your Canadian railway. We are building I lino to do business oo business
principles. If the Canadian Pacific
wishes to exchange traffic on fair
terms, no .hall certainly meet it in
the tamo spirit, There is no hostile
alliance, or, indeed, any at all, with
any other line by our company.
But I bog your pardon at to the last
part of the prediction of this paragraph. A man who only owns two
horses or a team, neod not always be
swallowed up by the man who owns a
hundred, or fifty teams. Is not thai
so? The Victoria Pima neod not no-
cessarily ho swallowed und digested hy
iti London namesake.
After conversing with the lentvtor on
a few other points which have already
been referred to in the Times the scribe
look his leave carrying with him the
impression that the New Westminster
Southern hid the right man at the head
of It—Timee.

ssewtf Williams Dead.
A Iprtaer twldtnt ot !tn» Westminster

Asylum.
We clip the following from tlio Oakland (Cal.) Etenimj IViiiuiic. Shcrrod
Williams was well known in this city a
few years ago, when he was prominently conneoted with the salmon canning business here:
The news comes from Berlin of .the
death of Sherrod Williams, eldest ton of
tin late General Thomas U. Williams,
The Information was received In a letter
from Mrs. Frank Johnson, his sister,
who was with him, but friends in this
eity recelyed letters from Mrs. Johnson
sonic timo alucc, announcing that Sherrod was confined in au asylum for the insane, restraint being necessary because
of excessive use of liquor. The life of
Sherrod Williams was full of event. He
was married to Miss Mollie Mareton, the
beautiful daughter of the late Samuel 1.
Mai-ston, who was at one time Public
Adininistiator of this county. Ho was
for a while tho manager of one of W. T.
Coleman's canneries on tho Columbia
river. He was a writer of considerable
ability, and contributed tu the Argonaut
and Jveios Letter. His stories were weird
and gruuomc. When General Williams
diodlie loft a will In whioh ho specifically disinherited Sherrod. However,
by a compromise, the other heirs, the
brothers and thi sitter of Sherrod, gave
him a part of the estate in order to pre.
vent a contest of the will. The will left
to each of the children an equal amount;
except Mary (Mrs. Johnson), the only
daughter, who received more, and Sherrod, who received nothing. The heirs
agreed that Sherrod should receive his
pro rata, and $100 per month for three
years, which the administrator, General
Williams's brother, paid. At one time
he was an inordinate user of opium. He
went to South America, and by sheer exercise of will followed tbe course of Re
Quincey, and when he returned to this
state he was entirely cured of the habit.
Some time ago he started on a European
tour with his sister, Mrs. Frank Johnson,
wife of Frank Johnson, junior member of
the firm of W. T. Coleman ft Co., and it
was during this trip that he died. The
remains wilt probably lie brought to this
city for burial. His widow resides in
this county, usually at Sunol, Throe
brothers eurvive him—Thomas H-, who
conducts the ranch of his father's estate
ou Union Island, Percy, who is in
Europe with hit sister; and Bryant, who
is ou this coast' Sherrod Williams had
abundant ability, and when he lived in
Oakland many good friends tried earnestly to direct Tt in the proper course.
His relinquishment of the opium habit
indicated the force of his will.
