NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tlie Cobniee and India of a recent date suja that: "Mr. J. A. D.
Onliill, a well-known Sydney, attorney, lias beeu called on to show
cause why he should not be dealt
with . for making very excessive
charges in bills of coata, Another
solicitor has been called upon to
show cause why he should not bo
struck od' tbo rolls,, Jor.miaapprop-
liuting clients' money." We never
hear of anything of the sort in British Columbia. Is it because our
lawyers "don't do such- things 1"
The Vancouver JVeitu Advertiser
oopies from,an Ontario paper a pari
a'graph about the Sunday traffic on
the Welland canal, whioh asserts
tbat anyone or any interest that
tries to make Sunday a working day
"should be looked upon by the
toilers as an enemy and be treated
accordingly." Our cotemporary
should be careful. If it lends its
columns to the promulgation of such
doetrinM tu these, someone may ap
ply them nearer home than might
suit the Newt and aame of ito
friends.
Whatever opinion one may entertain as to the accuracy of tbe reports whioh reach us of the actions,
utterances and intentions of the new
German emperor, the tele-grams
make it abundantly evident that the
uneasy feeling .which existed in
Europe some six months ago, has
been revived in full force, The;
young emperor is very generally
credited with an intention to tread
on somebody's coat tail at the earliest opportunity—and it is almost
a proverb that such opportunities
t come quickly to those who seek th*in.
. The general meeting of the Hud-
sin Bay Oompany—"The Oompany
of Adventurers of England trading into Hudson's Bay"—was held
recently in London, and wu slightly
breezy. One share holder put his
linger on the tender spot when he
said, "tve are no longer matters of
the situation." They ean no longer
trade off a musket costing them §2,
for half a dozen marten skins worth
$5 to $6 each. Consequently, divi
dends are coming down towanls tbe
vanishing point, and whej»„j*)if"-
dends fall, shareholders "want to
jknow, you Iniow."
_'U <) : -*-—
•"WitH steli a condition of publio
opinion, it is almost inevitable that
the old "scare" about Russian de-
signs ftp. s%om o6jP9.lri.the
front. Sober people will think twice,
however, before they allow thin-
selves to become seriously alarmed.
All the talk about the kqns-Oaspian
information, the only hew point is
therhintthat Bimyurck haa hit finger
inr the pie. Of course; there may be
something in it; but tlie gentleiaen
who send the prew tel.giii., r from
Europe have got so much into tho
habit df using the czar and the chai
cel|oi: ai bugaboos, tbat one is in,
dined to wait for confirmation of
their sensational stories...-,
Talking or wars and minors of
wars, many people now breathe a
sigh ot rtlief on reading the announcement that 0 battery had got
off for the. Skeena .river. We do
not say that tney coTlId hive been
sent off any sooner; but it certainly
does seem that there are always some
unusually hard knots of red tape to
lie picked out, when there is special
Hired for baste. There would probably be lees growling about necessary nnd justifiable deliberation in
ollicial matters, if the powers that
be showed themselves capable of
doing a llttlo "rushing" on occasions
when important interests—human
lives in this instance—are at stake.
It would be refreshing to see them
hit first and talk afterwards—school
boy fashion—-just for onco.
A child who had just mustered
hrr catechism confessed herself disappointed because, she said "though
I olmy tlie Pifb commandment, and

Duolin, July 17.—Everybndy is Expecting a grand riot in Ireland to-lnoi-
row. An enormous -soheine ia td be
inaugurated at tbo Vandaleur e4tato
at Kilrush, County Clare. Tho plrui
uioludos tho eriction of 114 families.
Captain Crocker and the sheriff of
Clare will proceed to the estate with a
force of 5(K) aoldien and police, who
will attaok the tenants and attempt to
e.iot them. Every able-bodied member of the 114 families, is prepared to
resist to (he last the attack and a hard
fight seems to be certain. The arrears
of rent owing by the tenants amount
to £80,000. The Vandaleur troubles
began baok in 1874, when the Iale
Colonel Vandaleur wu defeated In hia
contest for parliament, and he never
forgave his tenants for not returning
him, and in a spirit o' revenge he
raised his. rents to the highest legal
point, ' Of course the tenants rebelled'
and there has been trouble ever since,
culminating now in wholesale evictions. -*

Chinamen on the way from China to
New York, has raised a question of
great importance. Large numbers of
Chinamen have entered the United
States by the Delaware and Hudson
Railway this year, and up to the present all had certificates. The party who
came from China via Vanoouver and
the Canadian Pacific Railway wore
bonded in a train at Montreal on Friday, hound for Plottsburg. The custom house officials found tbat all but'
three had certificates. Of these one
had naturalization papers, showing him
to he a citizen of the United States,
while the other two had papers showing that they had declared their intention of becoming citizens. The papero
were made out at the elerk's otlico in
Fassae County, New Jersey. An examination was begun before the United
States coinmiasioner to-day, but was
adjourned until Thursday iu ordei to'
bring he Pasaac county clerk here to,
testify to the genuineness uf the papers.
A hew York Chinese merchant, who is
attached as interpreter in tho oase, declares his inttntion of bringing the
matter before the Chinese minister at
Washington.

dent   which   befell  a  young man'

In the bee and other parts of his

months must elapse before he can
hope to be himself again,   We are
not sufficiently acquainted with tho
circumstances preceding  the  accident to say who was to blame  in
this  case,   but  we should imagine
that  either tbe. contractor or over-
sour would be liable for heavy damages if it was a   case  of  defective
scaffolding.      We   have   heard   it
stated that very littlo caro is taken
by builders, generally, these times as
to whether their scaffolding, upon
which depends the safety of life and
limb  of. numerous   employes,   is
strongly constructed nnd properly
secured, or not.   Oompetition tends
to eheaply and hurriedly constructed
staging being run up. with leu  regard to the safety of human lite and
limb than to the saving of time and
money in the work.  We cannot say
positively   to  what extent  these
generalizations apply to the unfortunate accident referred to; but too
much care can not be  exercised   in
the at best rather dangerous  occupation  af  building, and we would
urge upon those in positions of  authority and   responsibility  in  the
building line to use every precaution
for the safety of. those employed in
such work.

The News of Ifrjday last opntainnd
an official announcement that a triweekly  mail  service was to be established between Sea, Island  and
Vancouver, via North Arm.   Some
time ago we called attention to the
fact that the mail service between
Westminster and the North   Arm
and Sea Island was limited to one
mail a week, and urged upon the
authorities the propriety  of  establishing at least a bi-weekly  service
immediately.    The  importance  of
these districts, and the community
of  interest  between them and this
city, render the present weekly mail
service  altogether   insufficient  to
meet, the publio  requirements  and
convenience.  Now that a tri-weekly
service has been established between
these  points  and Vanoouver, wo
take the opportunity to again, and
more forcibly, if possible, preu upon
the attention of the postal authorities the  fact that an injustice is
bang done this city and these settlement-! by adhering any longer to
the  weekly  mail   service.     Two
steamers ply on this route at present, one of them making daily trips,
and  the  existing weekly mail service,  whieh ia by ateamer, could
very easily, and without materially
adding to the cost, be increased to a
tri-weekly service.   It is to be .hoped
that bur representative will, use his
influence in this  matter   with   the
same happy results that.fpllowed his
potent  advocacy  of  the claims of
Van(*ojiF«BW*4:8eft.bl«*j!J to a.triweekly  mail.   In this connection
we. would   Again,  as we did u fow
weeks ago,  urge upon the proper
authorities the olaims of the important  agricultural  districts ' on the
south side of tbo Fraser to increased
mail facilities.   These districts are
included  in  the mnnicipalities of
Surrey and  Langley, .and lie between this city and the international boundary, principally.   The post-
office centres for the districts referred   to  are six in number and
named as follows!   Mud Bay, Elgin,
Surrey Centre, (Hover Valley, Hall's
Prairie, and langley Prairie.   The
two former are served by one carrier, and the four latter by another.
The service is weekly, and while it
has sufficed fairly weU in the past,
tha fast that settlement is constantly increaaing, and   the  importance
and tie needs ot these communities
increasing in tbe same ratio, renders
it very desirable, not to say impera
tive, that at least two mails a week
should be furnished these  thriving
and important settlements.   Their
proximity to this city—the farthest
postoffice not being twenty miles—
would make an increase in the service comparatively easy and cheap,
and this same consideration, ooupled
with the intimate relations existing
between this eity and the: districts
above mentioned, and the fact that
Westminster is   tht  distributing
point for eastern and  foreign  mail
for theae districts,  emoUasiies  the
necessity for_*)j*r, and „inpre. frequent  means   of   communication.
Onr representative will no doubt exercise his undoubted influence in this
matter  mm the jftimtw, .s.nd
,    procure the desired and needed   increase ifr the mail service.

with a gentleman  the  other  day,
who has stook and mining interests
in  the  locality  referred   lo,   and
spends tbe greater part of his   time
in that district, we  wero  informed
that a letter jailed in this JfyJ lot
him in February last did not reach
him ip Prin»Jtpn,,»b»i»t ijfty , ipiles
east  of Hope, until the following
June.    Our  informant  says that
there is supposed to be  a   monthly
service to Granite Greek—at least it
was established at one time, but it
is very vague and unsatisfactory at
present.   For the district generally
whioh  we  have indicated there is
really no mail service at  all.   The
population is, of  course,   scattered,
but  the  district is one rich in resources—agricultural   and  grazing
lands, und undeveloped gold, silver,
and other mineral   wealth.   Stock-
raising, mining, and prospecting are
the industries principally carried on
at present, and to a considerable and
constantly increasing extent.    We
are informed that   whon  hydraulic
mining is introduced into the region,
which is  likely  to be  soon, gold
deposits which coitld not be worked
to advantage or otherwise,, will   be
made to pay largely. Quartz mining
is also likely to be carried on extensively in the near, future, as all tbat
is required is capital and other facilities for developing the  undoubted
mineral wealth of tho region in question.   The entire absence  of   mail
communication   with  the   outside
world cannot but   militate  ngainst
the development of this district, besides proving an annoyance and inconvenience to the   hardy pioneers
who are bearing the brunt of all the
discomforts and hardships incident
to opening up and developing a new
region.   These discomforts and inconveniences,   however,  should lie
relieved by a paternal and fostering
government  to the best of their
ability, and not he allowed  to bear
unnecessarily upon tho sturdy vanguard of civilization  and   development, who ordinarily have  enough
to  contend  against without being
unnecessarily   handicapped.     Our
informant suggests that a bi-monthly
service in summer—monthly in winter, if necessary—should   be established   from   Hope,   on the Fraser
River, east to Keremeos, a distance
of about ninety miles  and   return,
taking in Granite Creel;, Princeton,
and Rock Creek.   The   mnii would
be  carried  on horseback, and it is
I estimated that this  service,   which
would be a great  convenience,   in
comparison with tho lack of proper
mail facilities, as at present,   could
be   maintained for about fifteen or
eighteen hundred dollars a year. As
an alternative route, the mail might
be carried from Nicola, north of the
settlements   to   be supplied, whioh
has a bi-weekly .mail  service.    We
notice in the P. 0. Guide for June
the following:   "Mails close, 28th
of every month at (2 midnight, for
Osoyoos,   Penticton,  Semilkameen,
Bock Greek, and Keremeos.    (Letters for Rock Greek to be addressed
via Osoyoos).   Mails due,1 within
two weeks after date of departure."
If carried.out on these lines, a
monthly service would be the result.
From  the numerous complaints to
hand  it  would  appear that there
is,  practically, no servico  at  all
According  to our informant, there
should  be  a bi-monthly service all
the year round,  if possible.   We
think, on the whole, there are very'
good grounds for a thorough investigation by tho postal authorities, and
the establishment os soon as practicable of a satisfactory and  adequate
mail  service   for  the   region    in
question.

DcHUi-Iptlon of tlie Female Attendant*
In New York Baths—II cnl tli y and Vigorous Young Women,
The attendants pn-scnt the iHosfc picturesque nppl-uratice, being elothed only
in uslfbi't tunic of whftfc cotton, caught on
one f-lioulder, falling awny from iho
other d-iwu uuder onu arm, ami reaching
totln* knee.
These (.Iris nro very beautiful in form,
tlieir round, shapely limbs gleaming
white, like marble, arid soft lo tho touch

lion,! flesh (incumbers them, not an outline nl' bona or joint mars the fair rouud-
uu-iH otsiiouldorsttiid limbs.
They seldom know dlsuase of any kind,
and are splendid specimens of physical
strength nml symmetry*
On lirst engaging in work oi this kind
they lose flesh rapidly,nnd hecomevery
much exhausted each day, but when «c-
eustomiid to tho work they regain their
nut uuil weight aud experience only a feeling of lassitude, from their long exposure
tothe heat, which passes nway after an
hour's rest. Their .hands are never exposed to any other kind of work, and aro
its soft as velvet, supple, firm and oxquisito
iu touch.
In the Russian bath the chief attendant,
n lithe, vigorous girl, with a orop of kiuky
brown hair that curled all the tighter iu
the steam and heat, worearery unique
and original costume Of Turkish towals.
Two towels wereltnoUed by the fringe

) GOOD MANNERS.
Regard to Courtesy as a Test of genial
Quality.      .-.-.,...■
The higher a person risu In tho Old
World the better his manners. ■ No oho
Is so respectful of au engagement to meet
other people as the crowned head. Queen
Victoria wonld not appoint an hour to
meet a lady and go away nud forget It.
This carelessness of forms and ceremonies may be ignorance; probably It Is,
but it isanignorauee which le culpable.
Probably the rewrsVls true. A newly- '
made monarch commits tlie errors which
marked the career of Sancho Pnnza on
the Isle pf Baratara, His new wiuohad
made him drunk, aud ho insults tho
people to show his greatness.
No American citizen should allow his
family to come up without some idea of
good manners, for there is no end to the
privileges of those who have go6d manners; no remuneration could cover those
from which a person is debarred by the
lack of good manners.   *——„-:,—.—

The son-in-law rubbing his forefinger
along the side of liis nose, us he leaned
his elbow ou the desk, said that, the old
man was' -a nut-unco aud no good, and
came round to the house drunk, and expected tu bo supported.
"I havo kuowu thu man twenty years,"
replied the Judge; "he used to work
uuder me; I never knew him to be addicted to liquor," And then bo repented.
"Do you wish him sent to the poorhouse?"
At Inst the son-in-law reluctantly consented to take the old maubac(t. Eut'i

Tke Camana Sails,
Shortly after 9 o'clook thia morning
the good ahip Camana coat off her linea
from the Royal City Mills wharf, and,
in tow nf lho tug Pilot, left for the
Royal Roads. About 100 citizens
gathered on th/> wharf and exchanged
hearty " good-byes " with Captain
Gordon and the ship's officers. As the
vessel swung round and her bow
turned down the river she dipped her
flng threo times, which was responded
to by the Ship Puritan and the Royal
Oity Mills. The Pilot thou gave a
succession rrf whistles, which were
taken up by the steamers lying at the
wharves and tho Unysl City Mills, nnd
it was many minutes beforo tho echoes
from these shrieks had died away. In
a few minutes Aiiiiacis Island hid the
Camana frum view, and the first ship in
many roars to load lumber for foreign
porta was a thiog of the past. The
Camana will proceed to the Royal
Roada and thore wait till a crew haa
been ahipped and then, under command
of Oapt. Worrell, will aail for Australia.
Her cargo consists of 412,000 foet of

One of the most interesting features
of the oelebntiou of the Fourth in
this city was the athletic games given
under the auspices of the Caledonia
Olub. An invitation waa extended by
memben of the club here to their
brethren ia Weatminater to take part
in the celebration festivities and it waa
responded to by a delegation under the
management of Col.Donald McGregor,
attending in the full regalia of the
club. Col. McGregor ana J. A. McLean especially excited the interest of
the on-lookors, being "brnwchiels"
considerably over six feet, the latter
measuring 6 foot 1\ inchea in Backings. The other memben of the club
present were John A. Murray, R. W,
Mcintosh and N. Carmlchsl. The latter
was the piper of the party and afforded
much entertainment to the many peo-
e'e on the grounds. Ool. McGregor,
. B. Murray, M. Ploken, W. H.
Cowio und John Orr had management
of the sports, snd the satisfaction given
to all parties is largely owing to their
untiring efforts in arranging tho various items bf the day.— Seattle Enterprise.

West Coast Railroad.
From the moat reliable information
the Iieveille can obtain, the following is
the route over which ihe West Coast
lino will be built: II will entor from
Skagit tu Whatcom county in the Sam
ish River valley between the river and
Mirror Lake, runs almost due north
and crosses the south fork about half a
mile west of Acme postoffice, continues
down the south fork on ths northeast
bank of the Nookaack river juat above
the forka; runs down the main rivsr
on the northeast bank; passes half a
mile west of Licking postoffice, thenoe
along the rivor valley midway between
Nookaack crossing and Tuxedo. It
then rune 111 a* northwesterly direction
three miles north of Lynden, crossing
the British boundary on tho Guide
Meridian line flvo miles north and a
little west of Lyndon. From this
point tho routo extends iii a northwesterly direction to Now Westminster. Of course the question uf right
of way and various other considerations
may voer tho Weit Coast from the
course a little, but this Is the gsnenl
route, over which thoy now intend to
build.

Many enquiries have beon made

of tho general public a representative
of the Coli'hbuk called on Mr. T. C.

of the Seattle Lake Shore and Eastern
Railway, and furnished the capital for
the work. He is a man df well known

EhitorColombun.—There are aome
queationa the people would like lo have
answered, with respect to thi. Southern
Railway question. I hope you are in
a position to furnish the public wilh
answers to ths following questions, slid
any other information you may deem
of interest to them:
(1) Is the charter held by ihe city,
or bjr private parties for their own
benefit?
(2) If private parties hold the char-
ter how earns they in possession of it,
and by what authority 1
(3) Who paid the expenses of the
charter in the fint inaUnoe, and on
that condition haa it been obtained
from tho city?—Youn truly,
Wm. Kmt.
[ (1) Tho charter is held by the
WestminaterSouthern R. R. Company,
an incorporated body.
(2) The Board of Trade held the
charter and had the.right lo use it
in the beet intonole of the cily.
. O) -The-Boarilof XtaAe paid fur tha
charter In the lint tatance and .the
Rail-way Co. refuhls to that body the
amount of their outlay.' It wu obtained on condition that a line be constructed tot's- boundary. We may

EniTonCoLViiniAN. --Wouldyou kindly give me space to make known my
viows concerning the New Westminster
and Southern R.B. There is bo mnch to
be considered before the city signs bonds
to a contract for the building of the road.
As I understand, Mr. Van Home ahowed
Mayor Dickinson a copy of agreement
with the Lake Shore and Southern 11. R.
Co. und the C.P.K.Co. Competing lines
are very good, but how long can the New
Westminster b Southern compete successfully with the U.I'.R.Co.? The one is
a creeping babe, the other Is s full grown
[ia-it; the chances are all in favor of tho
J.P.R.Co. Citizen-, should look only at
New Westminstor; it should bo Westminster now and for all lime, and wo
should do nothing to prejudice its future
prosperity.* If the city paid a large
bonus, with an assured prospect of future
{irosperity, the banns would be a good
nvestment, but under present aspects
what assurance have we I The district is
divided on the. question, aud there are
many doubts raised as to the ability of
the New Westminster and Southern R.
R. Co. to make the scheme a success.
We know hy experience the C.I'.R.Co.
can build the road and carry it through
successfully as far as the company is concerned, but we are not so certain of the
other company. We know also that,
through the selfishness of some of our
enterprising oitisens, our branch road
cost the city at the least fifty thousand
dollan more than It should have done,
without any blame to the C.P.R., who
have, up to the present time, fulfilled all
the conditions mode with them by the
city. Would two lines be a benefit to
the city? Assuredly not; the distriot
would not be injured, but the city would.
If there are competing lines, citizens
now living will not see a bridge span tho
Fraser from New Westminster to con-
noct with the:Southern R. R. A town
will spring up opposite this city, and
where the road crosses the Nicomekl
river, a village.is sure to be built. Ladnen in five years is sure to see 11,000 residents, and many other businesB centres,
are ln the nature of things, sure to rise.
New Westminster, wltli its beautiful site
and facilities for trade and commerce,
will be forced to share Its business with
many other places. We will have to look
well aad weigh cautiously, and with due
consideration our present action with
regard to the railroad, putting aside all
selfishness, and work for the future welfare of the city, tho prosperity of which
Is iu the hands of a few men to make or
mar. A mistake now will hang to the
city for all time.
Youn truly,
Jonu E. Lonu.

Editor Columbian.—It is vory flat
tering when such a profound philosopher as Dr. Kont condescends eroh to
notice anything that may be ssid by a
{ilebisn Like myself; but wise, and
earned, and honest, u he profesies to
be, he would hare shown all these
good qualities to better advantage it
he had simply given his own opinion
on the Southern Rsilway question,
without the fulsome psnegyrio on Mr.
Lord's oorreepondenoe, or the rather
invidious remark*) on mine. I might
have criticiaed Mr. I Lord's remarks,
which were published before mine;
but, in suoh cues it ia fairer to-let
every tub atand nn ita own bottom,
and let the reading publio judge for
themselves. But some, even great
philosophers, are in the habit of climbing up, either on flattery or calumny.
It ia amusing In hear the various
opinions expressed at present anent
this nilway scheme. Not a few mon
of property would be quite willing to
hare southern connection by nilway
if it would not cost snything; some
would be witting to subscribe to the
bridge fund a little; eome again are
afnid that if tbe bridge Is not built at
once a gnat rival town will grow up at
Brownville, and the old royal oity will
be nowhere. If a roan is known to be
in possession of a lot at Brownville,
or owns a few acres of land anywhere
between the southern bsnk of the river
and Ihe boundary line he is looked
upon as in league with the railway
company to filch from the ratepayers
of Westminstor. 1 wus in hopes thst
the lshmaeliies were all dead slid gone,
but I am afraid there nro u fow yet,
even iu the royal buriih. - It would
bave been well if they had all heen
made dirertota in this Southern Railway, or perhapi it might bu as well to
present them »ith a few preferential
shares in the oompany, free from taxation, to them and their hein forever.
But Westminstor is not the. only
piece that is sorely exeicised over the
prospects of thi. southern oonneotion.
Vancouver, according to Ihe Newt, is
also in trouble about it, and, if it dare,
would also be offering s big bonus for
a share in thia rich plum pudding from
the aouth; but its bands an full; it
haa enough to do to stagger under its
present obligations; it is beginning te
see thst its outlook under those cold
mountains of the north is not half so
cheering as ours—facing the sunny
south—with plenty of fresh water, inviting these rich finny tribes of the
ocean—the wealth ot the canneriea—
and on the other hand, gratuitous!]-,
wiping off tha barnaclea that impede
the apeed of Ma-going vessels.
"Surely the Hues hare fallen unto us
in plesssnt places, and we hare a
f;oodly heritage;" but sre we thankful
or all our privileges and opportunities!
Although we have evidences elmost
every dsy that .all things earthly are
very uncertain, yet we aot and often
talk ns if we had an insuranoe polio*
on life and houses snd lands and bank
stocks, snd even "railway" stocks. If
auiiie of thoee wiseacres who want to
make suoh .'a smart bargain with this
Southern Railway Oo., and get a
bridge and road for half nothing,
would turn their attention to procuring b.nk stocks "bevond theJordsn"
they might have a better certainty of
paying diridends thsn their presont
speculations. _   J, Kihhipt.
