NOTES AND COMMENTS.
An exchange ssys:—Since the
tierraan ompcror is to visit hii royal
brother of Spain, it is likely the two
potentates will greet one another
with u kiss, as monarch! of their
rank nre wont to do. Should it happen that the Spanish king turns
away from the embrace and even
dashes his list into the emperor's
face diplomatic intercourse between
tlie two nations will not cease, for
the Spanish king is itill in long
clothes.
Opinion in British Columbia is on
the side of no compromise with the
commercial union movement, and is
welt voiced by the Bumsn Columbian: "The eager anil misdirected
zeal of tho Wimanitcs and Sherman-
ites to tie ub up into an inextrioable
knot with the United States, will,
we beliove meet with a well-deserved
rebuke from every true Canadian.
Miss Canada is perfectly willing to
be a 'sister' to Undo Sam, but his
spouse, never I"-—Toronto Empire.
Albert Newell, of Saa Franoisco,
Oal., soys an exchange, has recently
returned from Honolulu. He says
that King Kalnkaua is in very poor
health. Kalakaua has been devoting himself to literary work of
late during the duytimo, and has
played pokor a good deal at night.
Lack of sleep and worry over tho
unsatisfactory condition of government affairs have made him thin
and nervous. He smokes constantly,
and the Hawaiian minister of statistics has nover beon able to count the
number of cigarettes he destroyes in
twenty-four hours.
The fojlojiiiigatatlier amusing in
cident was pubished recently in the
St. John Globe: The atmosphere
has got to be very frigid whon Col-
lingwood Schrieber gets left. A
fow days ago—during his luto tour
of inspection—Mr. Schrieber had
occasion to go over one of the branch
lines of the intercolonial in Nova
Scotia. Everything appeared to be
moving along swimmingly. The
seotion men were working like
beaver*, ihe pcrapiraiion rolling
from every pore, and everybody appeared to be earning hi* salary.
Mr. Schreibcr smiled patronizingly,
professed to be greatly pleased, and
moved along, Three miles from
where the aeetion gang wero laboring so hard, lie ordered his train to
be stopped, and then be backed
down two miles. Thii was done,
and then Mr. S. got out nnd walked
the remainder of the distance.
When he reached the spot where
the men had been perspiring a few
minutes beforo there was not the
slightest sign of life to bo soon—
everything was as still as the grave.
Tho section foreman was sent for
and his timo book examined, when
it w 1.3 found that full time had been
given ull the men for the day. Not
being able to give satisfactory an
sweis, the track-master was summoned. His explanations were also
so unsatisfactory that Mr. Schrieber
ordered the dismissal of the whole
butch of men,
Blakely Hall, in the New York
Sun, says of Canadians and Sir John
Macdonald: "It (Canadian manner)
strikes me as being a combination
of French sauvity and English hospitality. At all events the manner
of tho Canadians of tho higher clan
is admirable and amiable. Sir John
Macdonald I found to be as soft and
affectionate-spoken a man as 1 ever
met. He looks like the late Lord
lleaconsfield, talks like Dion llouci-
cault in the Shaugkran, sits like
Mansfield's impersonation of Mr.
Hyde, wags a long and impressive
forefinger in the fashion that should
raise the ghost of Inspector Bucket.
What seemed to impress him most
was the sad and incomprehensible
depravity of American politicians in
using tho fishery and other iju.islions
for political purposes, lln spoke so
eloquently and pathetically on these
points that for n time I w.is seriously aft'ectcd. Then it slowly came
back to my memory that Sir John is
perhaps tho most, crafty, gawky,
merciless, accomplished, strategic
and masterful schemer known to the
political world of this or any other
country to-duy, and I ceased to be
sad like a shot. Ho has had a grasp
of tho reins of power in Canada that
nothing has been able to shake for
47 years, and, if all signs aio not
erroneous, he is likely to keep on
steering tlio Dominion for 47 years
more. Aftor that, it is currently
reported that ho will go to Europe
and luTiqit a peerage, the premiership or somo such interesting ohunk
of greatness, and settle down to enjoy life. At present I do not think
Canada could do without him, for
his name here, like Gladstone's in
England, is in the mouth of everyone you Wedt'.""" '      ' ' .'•'

I ,     UIIUI SAllHviLLIj's lEITlill.
Londox, Oct. 27.—Lord Salisbury
still remains at Hatfield, whither several cnblegnims from Lord Sackville
have been forwarded admitting and regretting nil having- written the obnoxious letter. Telegrams have ola>
been forwarded to the premier from
Secretary Bayard urging, in view of
the approaching presidential election
the imperative necessity for a change
in the ponon of the Britiih ropre-
sentatire at Washington in order to
calm popular excitement. Minister
Phelps and his wife proceeded to Hatfield House this afternoon where they
will remain until Monday. Mr.
Phelpi and Lord Salisbury had a long
conference in tho library immediately
aftor tho former arrived. Mr, Phelps
enlarged upon tho necessity of prompt
action in order to repair the diisiter,
and made a special point that by treating Murchison as a British subject entitled to his advice, despite the fact
that he had stated he was a naturalized
citizen of the United States, Lord
Sackville had disregarded and violated
ths understanding of 1871, when Secretary Fish obtained England's recognition of the American doctrine of
naturalization. Lord Salisbury admitted this was a most serious point of
view of Lord Snokville'i conduct. The
matter ia made itill more annoying to
Lord Salisbury inasmuch as Lord
Saokville's appointment was originally
attributed to the influence of his sister,
Ihe second wife of tho late Marquis of
Salisbury, since married to the present
Earl of Derby.

THE MANITORA TROUBLES.
Winnipeo, Oct. 29.—Tho government has not yet resigned owing to tho
urgent representations of ils friends

SERIOUS RAILWAY ACCIDENT.
Brainerd, Minn., Oct. 29.,-An accident of a tomewhat serious character
occurred about 12:20 on Saturday
night at Whcelook, Borne 20 miles from
here. The Northern Psoifio w«*.
bound express, to which was attached,
among the Pullmans, the Winnipeg
sleeper, left tho traok.ni consequence
of a switch having been carelessly left
open by the fireman of a freight' locomotive that had been side-tracked.
Tho locomotive and three following
cars—mail, expreu and baggage—lett
the track and plnnged .down an ' embankment, but the remaining care held
the track. The express car caught
Grp, but the flamea were promptly '
subdued. The fireman, Brown, waa
killed. The engineer received in-
juriei that will probably reiult fatal.
A young clerk from thii town, who
was stealing a ride,' waa buried for five
houn in the debris, and, with the engineer and two mail clerks, who were
nlso injured, wai removed to Ihe hospital here. The engineer and the drug
clerk are believed to havo sustained
fatal injuries. None of the passengers
were hurt. Tho locomotive and the
derailed cars were completely wrecked,
and, considering the locality of the
accident, it ii marvellous that the entire train did not share a like fate. A
wrecking train was lent from here
and tho track cleared after a delay of
12 or 14 hours. The fireman, whoa*
carelessness caused the accident, will
be prosecuted.

We are pleased to observe a disposition on the puj t of the citizens
of the royal oity to interest themselves in advance in the constitu-
tution and policy of our next city
council. This is evidenced by the
two communications, headed re
opeotively "The First Note" and
"Progression Wanted," which appeared in our columns last week,
and may be taken as an indication—
most gratifying in itself—that the
people are going to wake up and
take a real live interest iu tho approaching civio election, with the
result-that the new council will bo
composed of the best men that can
be selected, and will be pledged to a
progressive und energetic policy
throughout. As our correspondent
"Z" says,. "although two months
have to elapse before the coming
civic election, yet it is none too
early to be alive and moving in the
matter." This is the right sort of
spirit, and one that has not ruled to
any extent in the past With regard to our present civic board, wo
are more inclined to agree with the
opinions expressed by our correspondent of Saturday, to the effect
that tlie council aro quite excusable,
under all tho circumstances, for not
undertaking, late in the year, any
additional schemes for oxtensive improvements or new enterprises, in-
involving the issuing of more
debentures. The council desire,
very properly, we think, that
the city ahould start the year under
its new charter with a olean sheet
and unencumbered books. We
trust that with the new oharter the
city may take a fresh start and
turn over a new leaf all round, and
the indications are favorable for
such a course.
Without disparaging tho present
council in any way—they are, of
course, not perfect—we would call
the attention of the ratepayers to
the fact that it is their privilege
and their duty to ascertain whether
it is possible, for the ensuing year,
to obtain, in whole or in part, a
better civic board. We believe
that it is; and, if so, an injustice
will be done to the eity if the very
best material available is not utilized for the important positions referred to. Next year will be an
eventful period in the history of
Westminster—a period that must
leave its impression very plainly
upon the future of the city, and go
far toward directing its destiny.
Thia province has just begun to re
ceive the attention which it deserve* from the outside world, with
which it has comparatively recently
been brought into easy commnni
cation. A larger movement than
ever may be expeoted next year toward this "gem of the west," of
tourists, capitalists, would-be set
tiers, and employment seekers.
That centre of population and activity that for thetime being presents
the most advantages for all classes
will score many marks over less
favored localities. It behooves us,
then, to look alive and see to it that
Westminster is not behind ns regards attractiveness and general
desirability to the classes that would
most benefit us as a oity. Important questions, some of which have
been time and again thrust in the
background, regarding city improvement* and other matters, must be
grappled with during the coming
year; mw schemes," necessitating
additional loam, undertaken, and a
general advance made all along the
line. The desirability will thus be
apparent of having the most progressive, clearheaded and businesslike men obtainable at the head of
the city's affairs for 1889.
Under the head of city improve
ment* a great deal requires to be
done that ean not and must not be
longer delayed. Sidewalks and
atreet* muat be repaired and kept in
order. Some of these are disgraceful now, and have earned for tho
royal city the unenviable distinction
of being the untidieit eity in the
province. New streets must be
opened up and additional sidewalks
laid, il the oity has already extended beyond thne very necessary
facilities, A thorough system of
sewerage i* imperative, as also good
eity water work*, without which neither sewerage nor adequate lire protection can be attained. Some attention mtut be paid to the testheticas
well M to the praotioal, and in per-
luanoe of this end some, at least, of
our public gardens, parks, terraces
tnd cresoenti muit be redeemed
from thUr **&- vHdfli** and eon-
verted into things of beauty, which
shall add to the health, the pleasure
and the attractiveness of the city.
In view of the provincial exhibition
being held at thi* city next fall,
special efforts muit be mode to have
the new city park, as well as all
public grounds, streets, sidewalks,
etc., in the very finest oondition
possible, The next annual show, if
properly managed, will furnish a
rare opportunity for advertising the
city, which must not be allowed to
pass unimproved. By that time
the Southern Bailway will bo running, and in addition to the large
number of visitors that may be attracted from other quarters, our
friends south of the line must be invited to give us a call and such arrangements made as will enable them
heartily to respond, Much oan be
dono in the way of furthering the
success of the next provincial exhibition, in every respect, by the cooperation and assistance of the city
council for the ensuing year, and we
hope to seo this co-operation and
assistance readily-forthcoming. Our
citizens, too, can aid in the most
substantial way, the same worthy
project. For further particulars,
see B. O. P. E. Fund in another
column.
First, perhaps, on the list of new
city undertakings is the muoh
talked of and long contemplated city
market. For years, both under its
present and former management,
Tut: Columbian has advocated the
establishment of a market and
urged upon the city authorities the
advisability and necessity of adopting and carrying out the scheme.
Vancouver has not been slow tore
cognize the advantages of such an
institution, and has taken steps
which insures it having the first
market, Westminster must, without fail, establish a city market
early next year. A city hall building, containing besides a public hall,
library, and polico court rooms, and
other city offices, should be erected
during tho year. The city has been
long enough without such headquarters for its civic business, and it
is not compatible with its dignity
and present and prospective importance, to say nothing of the necessities of the case, to dispense
longer with a city hall building. It
is altogether probable that the city
may find it advisable during the
coming yoar to give substantial aid
in some way to new manufactures,
such as tho proposed large foundry
referred to the other day in these
columns. A flouring mill and elevator is an enterprise that we may
consider it expedient to encourage.
Other industries may require fostering, aud,second to no matter in importance, we must see to tho improvement of our trade relations and communicative facilities with all parts
of the district, the province and the
outside world. To do justice to the
city next yoar, it will plainly be
necessary to borrow a considerable
sum of money; but the credit of
the city is good, and our debt is
small, so that the borrowing of a
hundred thousand dollars or over
will not be a serious matter, considering, too, that the amount and
value of our rateable property is
steadily increasing, and promises to
do so still more rapidly in the future
It may be advisable to adopt a different system of municipal taxation
than the one that has obtained heretofore. We rofer to taxing property
according to its value, including improvements, whioh, wo believe, is
the rule elsewhere.- We refrain.bow-
ever, from entering into this subject
at present.

i;.
Where It Ollglnatcd .nil tho Oroirth of
It. Popularity.
Polo, or hookey on horseback, as It ti
sometime! called, Is the national frame of
the people'of Gilgit, a mountainous conn-
try to tbe northeast of Cashmere.
Reports hail reached India, by way of
Cashmere, that the Gilgittiswere a race
of blue-eyed Kaffirs (unbelievers In Mo-
bammed), and it was suggested that they
were probably the descendants of one of.
Alexander's settlements, nnd to solvo this
question tho Punjab government lu the
spring of I860, deputed Dr. Gottlieb Llet-
ner to visit the country nnd inaiiire Into
the history aud language of tlio people.
As far as concerns that mutter, tbo
language of Gilgit was proved to be n sister language of Sanscrit, nnd not like
Hindi or Greek, a daughter language;
but tho point of Interest for tis-is that
Dr, Llctner took as much interest in tha
national game of polo us iu the Inngunge,
and persuaded three natives of the country to return with him to British India
and bring their ponies nnd polo sticks
along with them.
The party reached Sakon, the capital of
the Punjab, sometime in August, 1866.
and the game having been discussed at
government house a couple of teams were
got np und tho day fixed for the trial
games, which all the European residents
turned out to witness.
Tho teams were composed of Capt
Charles Marshall, Lieut. Pemberton,
Lieut. It. Nicholetts, Mr. C. F. Amery,
Dr. Leitncr, Seidan Mohammed, Hynth
Khan, the thrco digitus nnd one other,
nnd the game thus inaugurated, rapidly
Required popularity, clubs being established promptly at all the military station!.
The game was played with nn energy,
and with such speedy ponies of Arab
ntock that severe casualties wero frequent, so much so thnt considerable pressure was brought to bear on the army authorities to put a stop to it, but they
wisely foreborc, and tho game was soon
transplanted to English soil, where it
floiii'lsliid freely, throwing off vigorous
shoi.is (or transplantation in America
nud tlie British colonics.
It is perhaps the most exciting and exhilarating game known, but it is only
centaurs who can play it creditably and
enjoy it thoroughly.
MOHAMMED AND MUSIC.
The 1'rophot Nowhere Encourages the
rractlee of tbe Tonal Art.
It is, indeed, remarkable that the
founder ol tlio religion of a music-loving
people like tlio Araba ihould hare been so
decidedly indifferent to the practice of
the tonal art. For although Mohammed,
strictly speaking, was the avowed enemy
of tlie plasi ic art only, yet nowhere do we
find hlm encouraging the practice of tbe
tonal urt.
This is nil the moro unaccountable,
since.nnt withstanding thepropbet'ssccm-
iug lndifleveuco towards the art, be never
denied his descent f roni a musical naliou,
Forhe tcilx us that when, like Moses, he
withdrew into tlio solitude of tho wilderness, there to hold communion with
his God, ho heard the sound', as It wero,
of a tinkling bell, aud voice! singing nml
calling to him, and on looking, behold, no
one was nigh I
r Afraid of losing id. reasonhecommunl-
cated this strange manifestation to his
wife, Chndidshu, nnd it was entirely owing to her ministerial: comfort that he
took courage, uud continued to believe in
Ills Divine mission.
Th. fact of Mohammed necking the nil-
vlcoof his wife would seem to Indicate
that tho social position of Arabian women
was superior to that of othir oriental nations, and it breathes somewhat of that
chivalrous spirit which w. see now and
I lieu reflected in their melodies
Music also had no Important part assigned to it ln the early wars of Mohammed. At tho battle of Ohod, 635, a. n., in
which the victorious Mohammed three
llmei repulsed tbe Meccanltes, tbe women, led by the poetess Bind, sang to the
sound of the timbrel that tbe victor
would be received with open arms,
FENCINQ IN DUELLING.
Till Dlipoling of Difference, by Fighting
Originated In Barbarian..
In a country like France where duelling
is sauctloned by the social code nnd practically permitted by tb. law, fencing must
be held In high esteem.
Duelling with swordi li certainly a
braver and manlier method of dlipoilng
of difference! than a resort to the brutal
and ituptd bullet. With tu th. lesson
tanght by Hamilton'! death haa been deep
and precious.
It It not thought neceuary to prove a
man', valor by a personal encounter, and
the moral lense ot onr people, inpportcd
byourleglilatlon, llkemth. killing ot a
man by a prearranged encounter to deliberate murder.
It li a mistake, however, to inppoio
that the custom ol dualling wu it plant

Collecting Taxes.
Mr, L. P, Eckstein ii the owner of n
very valuable piece of property at Port
Moody, whieh city he hai so much confidence in that he cheerfully payi hii
taxes every year notwithstanding the
faet he hu uot yet received any income from hii investment. The value
of the lot ii 80, and taxes on the snme
3 cents. The assessment sheet and
printing must have coit the government half a cent, the envelop the same,
and atarnp thereon 3 cent.—total 4
cents, All Mr. Eckttein ii asked to
pay ii 3 cents, while the cost of collect-
ing thii large sum is 4 cents. The
queition new ii whether it would not
be more economical for the goverment
to remit Mr. Eckstein's taxes, or allow
them to run for 50 or GO years till thoy
ossunio suoh proportion! as would pay,
nt least, the cost of collodion. Other

The itr. Clara Port started lor Pitt

the O.P.R. wharf the towing line
broke and the eeow turned half over,
and it seemed for a time that, it was
going to sink. The dip of ihi now
prevented the Chineie leaving by the
door, and the only means of getting
out wu through the ito.o pipe hole in
the roof. A few second! after tho accident occurred a top-knot was Men to
bob up through the bole and a lecond
afterwards tho whole Chinaman waa
on tho roof calling in the most pathetic
Chinete language for assistance. He
wai shortly reinforced by the reit ot
tho Celestial., whoso united criei were
enough to drive all tho fish out of the
rivor, and whioh probably account! for
the imall catch of ialmon lut night.
The Clara Port ran alongside and took
the frightened Celestials aboard, after
which a rope was mado fast nnd the

Mr. E. A. Sharps, of Lulu Iiland,

and enthusiastic farmers, was in the

pay over the $10 which he had the
honor to be the lint after The Colombian to contribute towards the
B. O. Provincial Exposition Fund.
We appreciated Mr. Sharpo'i promp-

ui by trusting ui with the money, but
referred him to the condition! at tho
head of tho list in thii paper and reminded bim that we did not receive
the money, but merely gave our space
for the publication of tho subscription
lilt. Mr. Sharpe ia enthusiastic about
having a fino exhibition next fall, and
will futthor it in ovorjr way himself.
He says Westminster is just the place,
butoxpressei astonishment that some
of tho business men and prominent
citizens aro so slow in "coining up" in
the matter of tho "fund." Mr. Sharpe
even goes so far as to say that a man

Ball-Vneonver literally
Played Ont.
The foot bill matoh which wai postponed on Saturday owing to tha heavy
rnin was played this afternoon on the
erieket grounds. The Vancouver
team, accompanied by a number of
supporters, arrived on the noon train
and aftor lunch at the Colonial proceeded to the groundi. The competing
teami   were   composed as follows:—
Vancouver—Boultbee, Downi, William!, Johnson, Robertson, Robinson, Rountfell, Totloiv, forwards; Crickmay and Elwood, halfbacks; Stewart, Quick and Palmer,
three-quarter backs; Holt, full-back.
Weitminster—Back, Woodi; three-
quarter backs, Rev. P. Woodi, White
and Lewis; half backs, Turner and
Greame; forwards, Lilter (captain),
Oorbett, McMartin, Hall, Smith, Boll,
Hamber, Picklei nnd Mowat.
Vancouver won the toss and chose to
play down field with the wind and sun
on their backs. The ball was kicked
off at 2.20 o'clock and immediately a
scrimmage occurred and when the ball
emerged from the forest of logi it wai
almost instantly kicked out of bounds.
Another scrimmage took place, Weit-
minster gaining the advantage and
when tlio leather appeared it was aeized
on by Rev,. Mr. Woodi, who, tnado a
clever pan to White, who by a brilliant run carried it behind Vancouver'!
goal and eeoured the fint touoh-down.
Cheer after cheer went up when the
feat was accomplished and much ox-
citinont prevailed, which even extended to the fair box, who were preiont
in goodly numbers. Lister kicked
and made goal in the midst of another
tremendous round of applause. Time
5 minutes. Tho ball was instantly
kicked into play and loveral scrim-
migei followed oach other in clou
succession. These invariably resulted in favor of Weitmimter, whoie
men outplayed Vancouver at every
point. Lewii wu itanding well to
one side and when the ball oame out
of the scrimmage it bounded down towards him. A iharp spring and he
had it and after a pretty run another
touchdown wai scored..... Rev. P.
Woodi kicked, but the angle wn too
great and the ball poind to the right
of the goal. Moro icrimmagei followed and again Rev. P. Woodi got
the leather, patted to Lewii who mide
a aplendidrunand got a touch-down,
but it waa not allowed, Vanoouver
claiming tho ball had been thrown forward. A icrimmage now occurred
close to tho Vancouver line and Holt
took a touch-down forsafety. General
play followed for tome seconds when
Hamber got the ball, poised to Rev.
P. Woods, who polled to Lewis.
The lotter mado o desperate ruih
for the line and succeeded in securing a touch-down immediately behind goal. Lilter kicked
nndicorod another goal. Tho excitement now wu intense and Vancouver
stock fell very rapidly while Weitminster could not be bought at any premium. Play wai returned and Woodi
got the ball passed to Lewii who eecur-
ed another touoh-down, Not allowed.
Rev, P. Woods got the leather and
mado a splendid try for goil but fell a
little ihort.. A icrimmsgo followed
and nt its cloie McMartin emerged
with Iho ball and mode a touch-down.
Liater kicked and mode goal. Time
colled. Score 3 goali, 1 try for Westminster; Vancouver 0.
HliCONII HALF.
When play wu resumed Westminster
instantly forced tho loathor towards
Vancouver'send nnd prcaentlyQreame,
who pliyed a very pluoky game, got a
touehdown. General play followed for
a few minutes without much advantage
on either side till White got the ball
and after a very clever run made another touoh-down. Not allowed. A

ANGLO-INDIAN AGITATION.
London, Dot. 27.—An influential
committee of Anglo-Indians has been
appointed to co-operate in London with
the patriotic association that hoi been
started in India by Sir Km. Bynd Ahmed Khan and other leading Mahometan opponents of the national congress movement. The principal work
of tho organization is to counteract
the active proceedings of an Indian
political agency recently established in
London in connection with the congress. So far as India itself is con*
eerned, the European community has
taken nu part in the agitation, the only
overt opposition here to it having
come from the Mahometans who ap*
pear to be frightened by the superior
numbers, intelligence and education of
their Hindoo fellow subjects,
