NOTES AND COMMENTS.
It is the Chicago News which
gives currency to tho wild wo3tern
report (hat a great deal of interest
has been created union;; the fashionable government women at Washington by the iiiifiouiicpiiient that
Chief Justico Fuller lias decidotl to
wear liis noi/ nnd ollioinl silk gown
witiiout n bastk
Jt is ralliiT interesting for the
journalists just now in Viotoria.
The two leading papers—tlie Timet
and the Colonist—have libel suits on
hand. The former is prosecuted by
Hon. Mr. Dunsmuir; the latter for
criminal libel, by Mayor Grant.
As it is none of oiir furioral, we will
lut tho courts settle both matters.
An exchange 6ays: Another Mr.
Crowley has como to Iho surface in
New York in the person of a prominent dude, whoso address, style and
general "got up" in the line of neckties and pantaloons are said to be
perfectly killing. But his death,
when it occurs, will not occasion halt*
the sensation as did that cf the eminent Central Park chimpanzee. He
doesn't know so much.
By a substantial majority vote on
the market by-law, the other day,
Vancouver has definitely decided to
have a city market, and immediate
steps will be taken to carry out this
commendable project, Westminster
must not forget that it cannot expect to maintain its supremacy as
the natural trade centra of the
farming districts of the Fraser River
valley without a market. Steps
must be taken to this end early next
year.
An exchange says : A Kingston
clergyman explained on Sunday to
his congregation that in Winnipeg
whenever a one-cent piece is found
on the collection plate it is assumed
that a person from Ontario has been
to church. This is libellous, because everybody knows that Ontario
people place five-cent pioces on the
plate', largely because there is no
smaller silver coin. But, joking
aside, it is remarkable what a large
assortment of small change finds its
way into tho ohurch treasury. The
phenomenon should, porhaps, be attributed to the strong desire to imitate the example of tho widow who
gave her mite.
Mr, Eider Haggard is by no
means a toiler in a garret. Tbe
sixth eon of Squire William Haggard, of Bradenhain—a place which
has been in tho family for four gone-
rations—ho married n Norfolk heiress and so became possessed, ia right
of his wife, of tho manor ci Ditch-
ingham, on the edge of the Bath
Hills. Here he writes iu a pleasant
corner room of (ho charming old
houie, which is overrun with Bank-
sia roses, clematis and jasmine; and
here, at its door, he may be seen in
jacket and knickerbockers of brown
tweed, soft felt hat, thick knitted
stockings and serviceable boots; and
botween his lips a blackened briar-
wood pipe. His home is full of
beautiful and curious things.
A carter delivered a heavy box at
a house in the western part of Toronto the other day and helped to
carry it upstairs. He hung his hat
in the hall, and while ho wus upstairs with tho box tlie mistress of
tho house came along nnd noticed
tho old hat and called to tho servant to the effect that it bad been
hanging there all summer, that i I
would nover be worn again, and
that she had better burn it at on :e,
The servant responded promptly
and before the carter got down stairs
his hat was sizzling away in I!
kitchen stove. A surprise, i. seal < h,
a revelation followed nnd the oarler
wont away wearing tho best hat
that belonged to tho house and wondering if it would be will to hung
his old coat in thn lull ut tlm nluco
he next visited.
Plpnty of "good," of "ginit" and
of "wiso" king! have ruled in Europe, and aome of the other kind,
but not since the iron crown was
made from a supposed nail from the
Cross of Calvary, hai one of them
all earned the title given Christian
of Denmark by hii people. Punctuality is the old king's hobby and it
makes life a burden to all the sluggards in his kingdom. It is not the
fashion at the Danish court to bo
late. Tho sovereign is not only himself punctual to die second, but expects everybody to follow his example. He will neither wait for any
one nor let any one wait for him.
The people of Copenhagen, who are
rather an easy-going lot, have dubbed
him—half in aniusemont and half
in iitinoynnoo—Christian tho Precise, and the name has stuck.

surging, struggling mats of humanity
blockaded the entrance for several
hours before the time let for tho meeting and when the doom opened every
available foot of spaco was quickly
filled. Tbe crowd did not wait to ascend the itiirs loading to tho galleries,
but men and boys clambered up the
posts and over tho rnilingsftboae. The
srrivsl of Mr. Blaine wirs th. signal for
an outburst of applause and upon hia
introduction by Governor Oglesby the
cheering cu..:inued for several minute!.
After the etiugMr. Bluine reviewed
a parade numbering ton thousand men,
composed of campaign clubs, from the

decomposition, ind wai also mutilated.
The third wai found on Friday in tho
same condition in Marion river, and
the fourth was found yesterday morning near here. The negroes think
there is a murderous hoodoo smony,

London, Oct. 22.- Tho comm'siion
nppointod to inquire into the charges
made by the Tithes againstParnell and
other nationalist mombcra afparlia-.
mont, opened aessiun this morning, in
tho probate court teforo Jcstioo Han-
non, Day, Smith and Seaton. Sir
Chas. Russell, who with Herbert As-
guith, M. P., appears for Parnell and
83 associates, applied for tha release of
Mr. Redmond, M. P., who is serving
a sentence under the Crimea Aet.
Hannen said lie would be released under strict conditions that he would not
be allowed to take part in public life
and hold himself striotly aa a priioner
on parole. The court decided to hold
a session every day except Saturday.
Attorney-General Sir Richard Webster, opened tho case for the Times and
said he would not treat the ease wi
having anything to do with home rule
or any Irish queition. Inquiry will be
made againit the Parnellitei in the
coune of the Tt'met-O'Donnell libel
tuit. The court was crowded and Parnell and many nationalists were pre..
ent. Webster stated evidence will be
produced to prove Parnell and his associates hnd been connected with the
Irish-American dynamite™ and he
would alio ihow that many crime.,
whose perpetraton and origin could
not be traced, wore due to incitntion
of the Iriah land league.

From Ladner's Landing.
(Oorretpondenoiol the Oolaablin.)
The canneriei have ill elosed down
and the Indian! at most of them are
paid off and gone. The season hai
been a disastrous ono to the cannerr,
all of whom have a large stook to carry
over.—The farmen aro busy hauling
their produce, whioh meets with a
ready sale at current nites.—The principal topic is tho loan by-lay, everybody trying to find fault with it,.. although without doubt it has been arranged with tho idea of catching enough
vote, to carry it; fifties, hundreds and
two hundreds being thrown :n all directions to catch votes. The principil
objection h to giving a centum just
going out.of power to large a turn to
oxpeiKl, and at Iho worst soaBon of the
year lor making roads. The item,
cross road Parmiter-Bentbh, $550,
causes a good deal of comment, at doei
the fact that there ia no provision for
Wcslliam Island, nor for that portion
of ward 5 bordering on Fraser river,
where somo of the oldest ratopiyen in
tho municipality reside, and have never
had anything done fnr them. And
there aro too many appropriation! on
"One Settler" road,. The large
amount asked for ward 1 it an objection hard to overcome, but ahowi th.
councillor for that ward to have lookad
well after iti intereit. However,
everyone can rote on the by-law who
is on tho assettment roll, taxot paid or
not; bo there is ample chsnee for all to
look after themselves and to say aye or '
nay to raising their taxes about 40 per
cent.—The Victoria, Satnich & Wettminiter railway surveyor! hav. left,
having completed the line through the
municipality and are now otmped on
Lulu Iiland, neir Ewcn'i cannery.—
At tho expeme of the council, Dr. '
Fagan has attended here twioe to vio-
einate, free of charge, all who presented thomtelvei, and sore arms are the
fashion.—Archdeacon Woods paid na
a visit and preached at the harvest
thanksgiving service in All Saint*,
ohurch on Sunday morning.—Soma
augar beets, grown here, were sent to
San Francisco for analyiit, and the
roturni are most satufaetory, the percentage of lugir bting muoh highM
than thit of Ihe German sugar Mats.' _________________tt__mmm_m___nn_

As our readers will have noticed,
the subscription fund started by
'Chk Columbian for the purpose ol
assisting to make the next provincial show, at this city, a decided
success, has received the substantial
approval of.a few subscribers. Many
more will no doubt follow. There
appean to be a sort of natural shy-
ness at being too forward in this
matter, which is commendable if it
does not take the chronic form,
We believe thero are scores—perhaps hundreds—who fully intend to
aid thit worthy project handsomely,
and now, that tho ice is being
broken, we shall probably have to
enlarge Tbe Columbian to obtain
space for the list of subscribers to
the fund. There should be no hesitation on any grounds whatever
about assisting in one of the moat
practical ways possible, not only to
nave a grand and unprecedentedly
successful exhibition here next year,
bat by and through this means to
add directly and indirectly to the
fame and wealth of the oity as well
as to the value of its permanent institutions. We have endoavored to
show the reasons for the indifferent
success of provincial exhibitions in
.the post, we have pointed ont the
advantages sure to accrue to the
province, to this district, and particularly to this city, from such an
exhibition as we hope to see held
here next year, and wo have drawn
attention to the self-evident fact
that a liberal supply of the "sinews
of war " is needed to make the exhibition "mare go." Any money
expended by our citizens in the
furtherance of this laudable, object
will be returned with interest, without any doubt, as, besides tbo direct
benefit of having a largo and successful exhibition at this place, the
necessary outlay for preparing
grounds and buildings adds to the
permanent value of the city, and
provides facilities for future exhibitions and for other useful and reproductive objects. Such an exhibition as wo have indicated should
have a tendency, too, if properly
managed, to permanently improve
our trade relations, not only with
the contiguous farming districts, but
with all parts of the province. We
have already hinted at the capital
which might be made for the province and this"Ml^'sWWaa'd if the
next annual show is managed on a
scale and in the manner suggested,
A very appreciable impetus would
also be given to agriculture, industry, and art throughout the province. Such are some of the beneficent fruits of properly conducted
expositions in other lands, and the
same results would follow here, in
perhaps a greater degree. Another
thing noticeable—and particularly
worthy of attention in connection
with this subject—is the fact that
the successful exhibitions elsewhere
are city institutions—owing their
success to the energy, enterprise,
and backing of the business men of
the city—and not infirm pensioners
on governmental bounty. In like
manner, if the citizens of New
Westminster take hold of this provincial exhibition in the right spirit,
they can, by largely supplementing
the usual revenue of the association,
get up such a show as shall be a
lasting credit and benefit to themselves, the Royal Oity, and the province. As we havo before remarked, we hope to see such an exhibition here next fall, and with this object in view, it is full time that ac
tive measures were being taken to
prepare the grounds and buildings at
the new city park. Agreat deal of
work is to be done, and "the grounds
should he laid out and the clearing
got under way immediately; The
extent of the preparations will, of
course, depend somewhat upon the
amount of money guaranteed for tbe
purpose, in addition to what is already at the disposal of the city,
We would, therefore, suggest that
anyone intending to contribute towards this praiseworthy objoot
should declare their intentions as
soon aa possible—tho sooner the better. Some would-be contributors
may havo apprehensions us to the
proper disposal of the fund thus
raised, ' Thia difficulty, if it really
does exist, can be obviated easily
.enough by the formation of a com-
lWttee from the contributors themselves, to act in conjunction with
the officers of the agricultural association and the city authorities. There
may be a great many, in this and
other districts throughout the province, and in the various cities nnd
towns, who will not be disposed to
contribute towards this fund. All,
however, should become members of
the B, 0. Agricultural "Association,
thus securing for themselves ull the
privileges of the society and contributing materially to tho success
ot the exhibitions. The annual
membership fee is (3, and, for the
information of those wishing to communicate with the secretary of the
association for further information,
we would remind our readers that
Mr, D. Robson was elected secre
tary at the annual meeting a few
weeks ago, Let everyone rally for
a grand provincial exposition at this

" Thi BoUi.n n.t« n«.i No F.ciw Aria
™.    On 'Nother.No How."
At ti. feot of Shy's liill, us ire de>
scentleai *o met two Confederate
soldiers. They did not challenge us,
There wss no "click, click," of a
rising musket hammer, nor any clank
of sabres.
They simply looked np, on. from
his sorting of potatoes, and th.
other, as he came towiird us, and aaid
cordially:   "Himd'ylf"
We answered " How d??"
Then we learned that on. of them
had beon a member of the First
Tennessee and the other of the
Fourth. The spokesman of the two,
Mr. Ned Song's, as lie told us, was
in the battle of Nashville, and yearly
plants his potatoei and hoes hii com
on the ground where he fought—and
where he ran.
He pointed out to us a gap in the
hills through which he went "on
double-quick time, yew bet, when onr
officers corned down the line says,
' Every man take kyar of liiusolf.'
"Imade up my mind that I'd do
it quick, and right layer's where I
oomed through on a right smart
run."
Aud he laughed heartily aa he
looked back on the figure whioh
that fleeting Johnnie must have out:
Tankeei and bullet, ware after
him, and haste was entirely proper.
Neither he nor his comrades stood
" on tbe order of their going;" they
went   They had no time tb laugh.
It is safe to say they didn't seo the
joke then.
These passing scores of years have
wrought a chango, when such a man
can laugh with a Yankee (all Northerners are Yankees here) over his own
disasters.
" I don't think no less of yew today than if yew hod been a rebel right
along with tho rest of us," was a
port of the cordial gieoting.
" The soldiers never hed no
feelin' agin one 'nother no how. Hit
wuz a rich man's war an' a poor
man's fight, Look a' how we'uns
used to meet up with you alls,
whenever we hed a chance, on the
outposts. Why, we'uns and yon'uns
used to leave our guns an' meet up
'twixt the lines, an' talk lm'f hour at
a time, an' trade papers an' one
track or other, when the officers warn't
watchin'. Done it nio'ii wunst myself."— [0. 0. Brown's " Battle-Fields

Trlaogulftr Mirrors.
"Women,as everybody knows, are
the hardest people in the world to
please," said n wau, pale-faced clerk in
a large jewelry establishment tbe other
day, just after wrestling for an hour and
a halt with a fat girl in a red hood, who
had bought only a silver bangle brace*
let for a dollar.
Tbe pale-faced clerk heaved a sigh,
and then continued, in a dull and listless sort of away:
" But I think we've got something
now that even the prettiest and meanest
female in the world can't complain
about
" Yon know (or raebbe yon. don't
know, you don't look as though you
wero niarried-^-say, l'v» been married
two years), every woman would rather
see tiio back of nor head just after she
bad put up her hair than anything else
on earth.
" Well, they have been straining
their necls and using hand-glasses in
front of their mirrors for. a long time,
nnd tbe result haa not been particularly satisfactory.
" It has at length ooourred to somebody to invent something to remedy this.
" There ia a three-sided glass. It's
rather expensive, yon see. French
plate with ivory backs. Tho sides
are movable and adjustable.
" A woman ean arrange that thing so
that she can ait in front of it and set
her back hair without turning her
head."

A Strait Or »t Su.
There is a lawyer in Boston who is in
the habit at times of addressing individual jurymen when inattentive or
restless, ana sometimes his argumentum
ad liominem is effective.
Some time ago he waa trying a case
against a street railway company, and
there was an old sailor on the jury wbo
seemed to give no heed to what either
counsel said. The lawyer made hia
most eloquent appeals, but all in vain.
Finally he stopped in front of Ihe
sailor and said:
"Mr. Juryman, I will tell you just
how this happened. Th. plaintiff was
in command of the outward-bound open
car, and stood in her starboard channels. Along came the inward-bound
close car, and just as their bowa met
.she jumped the track, sheered to port,
and knoeked the plaintiff off and ran
over him."
The sailor was all attention after thii
version of the affair, and joined in a
$5,000 verdiot tor the injured man,

Washable Wall Paper.
A firm of Lancaster, England, have
brought out a novelty which wonld seem
to possess no little utility. It is a fabric
for covering walls, to wnich tho name
_t" Teotoreum" has been given.
While it possesses an artistic appearance, it can be repeatedly and thoroughly washed with Boap and water without
uffering any injury, being entirety
impcrviou. to damp. It il very durable, ia aa cheap aa ordinary wall paper,
and ean be applied in the niual way;
while inasmuch aa it ohecks the inroads
of damp into a room, it can lay claim
to hygienic qualities.
1 It haa always been possible to clean,
by diverse means, the different articles
■it domestic furniture; and the only
itruotural portions of a room which one
.ia! not been able thoroughly to wash
jave been the walls.
With the new material in use the
Mill may be soonred as freely aa the
loor; and the consequent advantage!
;.n the cats, of hoipiiali, aoliooli and
ither buildings, in which perfect clean-
inesa is so essential, will beowsiiderable.

from those who havo realised, by per.

Cherry Pectoral. *• I cannot say enough
in praise of Ayer's Cherry Pectoral, believing as I do that, but ror Its uso, I
ihould long lince have died from lung
troubles.-E. Bragdon, Palestine, Tex.
About six months ago I had a severe
Hemorrhage of the Lungs, brought on
by a distressing Cough, wnich deprived
me of sleep ana rest. I had uied various cough balsams and expectorant!,
without obtaining jelief. A friend advised me to try
Ayer'* Cherry Pectoral.
I did io, and am happy to lay that it
helped me at once. By continued use
mis mediolne cured my cough, and, I
am satisfied, saved my life.—lbs, E.
Coburn, 18 Second it., Lowell, Mass,
I have used Ayer'i Oherry Pectoral
for over a year, and sincerely believe I
■hould have been ln my grave, hail It
not been for thii medicine. It lias cured
me of a dangerous affection of tho lungs,
for which Iliad almost despaired of ever
finding a remedy.—D. A. McMullen,
Windsor, Province of Ontario.
Ayer'i Cherry Pectoral laved my life.
Two yean ago! took a very levere Cold

At a meeting of the Reufiow Agricultural Society Prof. Suuml ..a delivered a very interesting nddicai in con*

Concerning the B.C. farm nt AgaiB!z
he said, it is situated below the cont
range of mouiiliiius, and has n olimuto
much liko that of England. It it admirably adaptod for fruit culture, apples, pears, plums,.and cherries, growing there with a luxuriauco surpassing
anything wo cun do here. Many of
these fruits nro much larger than ths
same varieties grown anywhere in Ontario; and it ia believed that in that
province, although the quantity of
agricultural land ie limited, it will be
potiible to produce there a largo quantity of fruits to supply tlio mining
{lopulation of the mountains and the
en favored districts in the t...rritorici.

The Yukon Country.
An Ottawa despatch says: R. J. Mc-
Connell of the geological survey staff
haa juat returned from a geological exploration of the Yukon and Mackenzie
rivers. The Yukon ia deicribed al a
river of immense size and volume,
2,300 miles long and navigable for
fully 2,000 milea. It runs through
about 200 miles of gold range, and the
precious metal can easily be Been by
the naked eye in ledges of rock that
bound oither bank, but io far all the
mining for gold is done in placers,
miners washing out on the tiara of tho
river from $20 to $50 per day. But
thia can -ao carried on for only about
two monthi in the years owing first to
high water and secondly to frost, which
comes early and stopi all operations.
Precious minerals are abundant and
can be mot with in many districts,
especially in tho rougher country and
on nearly all the rivers which he traversed.

Somo monthi ago it wai announced
that the C P.R. were building two cars
nt Vancouver for tlio Westatiinsler-
Vancouver route, and that they would
soon replitco the very inefficient service
then furniihed the travelling public.
Weeks pnssod and thon months, without a sign of the promised change, and
people began to think the company
had forgotten its promise. But to the
surprise of many the train rolled into
the station to-d-.vy with two now cars
attached, which, it is said, will remain
permanently on tho route. The cars
nre apparently new—one a lirst-clasi
conch and the other a baggage and
einoker combined. They nre handsomely Httod up and are in overy woy
suitable to the service. Chinese and

_   Wedding. Bells.
An event took place in Holy Trinity
church this morning which hai been
anxiously awaited by society in general for leveral months past. Tho evont
was the marriage of Reginald John
Riokman, eon of tho late' Samuel Rick-
man, Esq, of Liverpool, England, and
Annie Wilson Homer, daughter of the
late J. A. R. Homer, Esq., M.P.
Holy Trinity seldom contained a larger
congregation than thia morning—an
' evidence of tho high estimation in
which tho contracting parties are held
by all who have the pleasure of their
acquaintance. The, aacred marriage
ceremony wai conducted by tlio Venerable Archdeacon Woods, assisted l.y
tho Ror. Mr. Scholfield. Promptly at
11 o'olock the bridesgroom, accompanied by 1. B. Fisher, Esq., manager
of tho Bank of British Columbia, the
groomsman, arrived, and were ihortly
followed by the bridal party. The
bride, who looked exceedingly hand-
lome and was dressed in an exquisite
shot load silk dress with silver steel
trimmings and bonnet to match, was
led to the alter by Mr. W. H. Falding,
brother-in-law of the bride. Miu
Homer, dressed in electric blue with
bonnet to match, and MUa Alice
Homer, dreued in cardinal, aeted aa
bridesmaids. Aa the last word of the
impressive ceremony wai performed,
the organ, under the able direction of
Misi Dickinson, lent forth the joyoni
strains of " Mendelsohn's Wedding
March," and tho happy couple left tho
church omidBt the congratulation! of
the many friends who pressed forward
to wish them muoh joy. A carriage
was in waiting, and, in the midst of a
shower of rice and old shoes, the newly wedded couple left for Vancouver,
from whence they go to the Sound,
whore the honeymoon will bo spent.
At the invitation of Mr. Falding a
few friendi repaired to hia house where
the health of ihe brido, and continned
happinesi and prosperity to the newly
wedded pair, wai drunk with all honor!. The wedding prosents are both
numeroui and handsome, and many of
them are rich and costly. The Columbian join! with Mr. nnd Mrs. Rick-
man's host of friends in wishing them
much joy and a life of happiness nnd
prosperity.

Yeiterday (Sunday) the Mary-itreet
Methodiit church in thil city wai re
opened for public worship, after being
closed for about five monthi, undergoing extensivo addition! and improve-
ments. Besides presenting a much
better external appearance, the "tapaci
ty of the church has been nearly
doubled, class rooms have been added
below, tho lecture room in the base,
ment has been enlarged, and the ceiling
railed two feet, the coiling of the main
church haa been raised and arched,
and new eeating placed in both church
and basement, that in the former being
upholstered. Superior arrangement!
havo alio been made with regard to the
location of the choir, which is now on
a raised platform in the rear of the
pulpit. Owing to unforseon delays in
receiving new carpets for the aisles
and new gns chandeliers, the internal
arrangements of the ohurch aro yot incomplete in theso rotpects, but both of
these items will be attended to almost
immediately, and then, for commo-
dioumess and general comfort and convenience, this house of wonhip will be
hard to excel. The acoustic propertiei
of the church aro aaid to be nearly perfect, ond it! leafing capacity ie 450,
and when the draw teats are utilized
100 more can be comfortably accommodated.
Three very intereiting service! were
held yeiterday. All were well attended, and in the evoning the church waa
filled to overflowing. Rev. E. Robaon,
of Vancouver, president of the Methodist Conference in tlio provineo, conducted the morning service. Rev. T.
Scouler, of St. Andrew's Preaby-
terinn Church, preached at the
three o'clock aflernoou service
Tho service iu tho evening was
delivered by Rev. ,1, W, Wudnian,
M. A., of Victoria. After the evening
service tho Communion was taken,
Rov. Mr. White, pattor of the church,
assisted and rend the announcement!
throughout.v Thb'lingingof theohoir
on all the occasions was worthy of
note, and waa vory inuoh appreciated
by the audiences. The choir aro indebted to the kindnets of Mr. and
Mrs. Middlebrook, of Vancouver, who
with their beautifully rendered solos
and part linging contributed very
much to the success of the music both
nt the Sabbath lerticei and at the entertainment on Friday night.
Colic ond Kidney D\_Hcully.~Mt. J.
Wilder, J.P„Lafargevllle, N. Y., writes:
"I am subject to severe attacks of Colio
and Kidney Difficulty, and find Parmelee's Pills afford me great relief, while all
other remedys have failed. They are the
best medicine I have ever uted." In fact
so great is the power of this medicine to
cleanse aud purify, that disease! of almost every name and nature are driven
from the body.
