NOTfiS AND COMMENTS.
Tlio world does move. Mis. Cleveland—Queen of America—hai been
"going for" bustles and corsets, and
now it ii uid.the Princes! of Wales
ii more thin ever letting her face
against lacei, satini and furbelowi
in publio placet. On an ordinary
occasion the Smios with the most
interne and itudied simplicity.
Railway managers are beginning
to find out tint "fast time" is not
all their fancy painted it. It cost,
more than it comes to, for fine thing,
and sensible travelers are not attracted by the gain of a few mtnutei
at the risk of their neck*,' Qonsej-
quently we hear of the withdrawing
of "flyers" on this continent, anil in
the old country, the ending of the
competition in tine between tht
London-Edinburgh expresses', seems
to tell the same story.       '"
William Bohttn, of Rockaway,
the brute who gouged out hii wife'i
oyei, was sentenced the other day
in Long Island Oity to 26 yean and
11 mos. imprisonment at hard labor.
He was indicted on two count*. Oh
the first he was sentenced to 14
years and 6 moi., and on the second
to 12 yean and 5 months. One
wonders if any punishment that the
human imagination could depict
could possibly be commensurate with
such a revolting offence.
Receipt! of over 113,000 for entrance money at the Toronto exhibition one day last week make it apparent that the capital of Ontario is
getting to be quite a town. But it
does not appear to be as good a town
in some wiyi as it ihould. The
Globe says the hotel accomodation is!
away behind the time; thla; streets
are not looked after as they should
be, and sanitary arraneements are
under the mark, *^j^"|Wj W*
like to be aiked ito'name, offlianj,
a town which is not, more or lest,
in the same tub—at least in lome
particulars. When will the problem, How to have really efficient
municipal government! be lolvedt
The Naneouvcr News, thii morning, saya we "took exception" to its
remark that our articles on English
politics "lacked, as was plainly dis-
cernable from certain internal evidences, an acquaintance at fint
hand with tbe subjects under dii-
cussion." Well, we presume even
the Vanoouver Newt could be trusted to understand, by ita own unaided intelligence, that we can't very
well be here and in London at the
same timo, so we do not very well
see how we could be expected to
keep up a close "fint' hand" acquaintance with Engiith politics;
but, all the. same, we must trouble
our contemporary to trot but a few
specimens of his "internal evidences." We don't profess to know
all about everything, but we don't
seem to remember any particular
blunder lately. Let us have a sample, Mr. News, or stand convicted of
trying to obtain a reputation under
false pretences,
The American damsels itill continue to make the "dukes" happy.
The engagement of Miu Virgin Mc-
Lavish, of Baltimore, to the Duke
of Norfolk is announced. Min Mac-
Lavish1! pedigree, ai given in some
of the American papers, shows that
she comei as near being blue blood
"as they make 'em" under the tegii
of the eagle, Miu MioLaviih and
her mother hive been in Europe
since the early ipring, it ii itated,
and are still abroad. During their
stay in London they were the guests
of the Duke of Norfolk, one of the
wealthiest noblemen in England.
Tlie "dook" ii evidently marrying
her for her looks,
A late New York dospntcli an-
nounoes that Miss Dollie Seiga, of
that eity, is engaged to the Duke of
Newcastle. The young Duke of
Newcastle, says the despatch, has
been twice to this country in search
of health. He was let fall hy his
nurse when an infant—an acciilont
which superinduced hip disease and
left him a dwarfed and crippled invalid. He visited thii country for
the second time last winter, and was
introduced to many clubs, and made
many friendi by hii gentle and unostentatious manner. He returned
to Eugland in March, and in May
Mrs. John Serga and Miu Dollie
sailed for England, where they have
been ever since, and where the
friendship of the young people
ripened into love, The dukes are
rapidly going under the hammer.
Now or never, girla, if you want a
"dook." Don't let the American
cousins capture all the prey. What
are our fair Canadians thinking
about!

In anottilr colunii we publish'a
very ftitfluid'mteriitin'g telelrapDic
reportj from our ipecial representative on the grounds, of the Chilliwhack agricultural show, so far as
it has jwoj^ed to-day. We are
luri) ttatejiery British Columbian—
aiitfespeailan) %very inhabitant of
N.» Weitminiter and district—
wiirexperie«?ce,a.|-eeling of laudable
pride wlwnjtieyjieriiie the glowing
deacrip'tioh of the varioui: products
of garden, fa^oi, and daily, which
our reporter, has, been moved to indite from a rational examination of
the same. The comparisons, too,
with previous yean are very en-
oouraging,, ihowing the splendid
progreis (hat' ia being made in
agricultural, aa woll as in other lines
throughout the province, The
mention about peaches, grapes, itc,
emphasizes a fact not generally
known, that these delicious fruits
can be grown and matured in this
country, aa well as the hardier sorts
of fruit. The report about the products of the dairy is also .very gratifying, which indeed can be said
about every item of the fine exhibit We predict that after the
various other local shows, in addition to the provincial exhibition at
Victoria, shall have been held, and
IMU and particular report! of all
these given to the world through
the enterprise of The Columbian,
that the man who sayi there is "no
agricultural land in British Columbia" will be hunting for one of
Mr. Wells' big pumpkins to fall on
him and conceal him from the scorn
and brick-bats of this generation.
We printed another communication yesterday on the subject of
steamboat whistles. We refer to
the letter signed " One of the Sufferers," and which wai written by a
lady correspondent Surely some
one will now be chivalrous enough
to take the necessary steps to bring
the matter before the civio authorities in proper shape. We understand that it will be in order to do
w by petition. Let aome of our influential and energetic citizens take
tbe initiative. Here is an opportunity for some one to earn the lasting gratitude of hll fellow-citizens—
including the ladies—by lending his
valuable aid to removing an incubus
and an annoyance from the other-
wiie almost elyiian environments of
the royll city. To speak with due
seriousness on this question, it is
necessary perhapi to call to mind
the faet mentioned by oar correspondent, that the whistles, especially
in the early morning, are "more distressing to the weak nerves of many
lufferers than the Sound sleepen
with t*Tohg nerves can understand.''
There fi much truth in the foregoing, atd a truth that the people
with "itrong nervei," not physically
appreciating, are apt to forget. We
can nWrly all recollect how intolerable are some things—trifles, perhapi, compared with ihe ear-splitting iteamboat whistles—when one
is prostrated by sickness, that are
contemptuously ignored in sound
health. We Have referred thus at
length and again to this subject because we consider it ii of sufficient
importance to demand it, und because we do not wish to see the
matter la-se Igsin without effective
aotion being taken. The gallant
iteamboat moguls, as we predicted,
have signified their Willingness to
conform to the properly expressed
desires of the public in this matter,
and nothing remains to be done but
the circulation of a pe'ti**6n and
action on the petition by the council.
Some patriot and philanthropist is
wanted to take the lead. Who'll be
firstl   Don't all speak at once.
TheRepublican campaign Bpouters
have had an idol shattered and one
of their pet whoop, hos nearly
whooped iii last, And o friend and
a great one in the Republican camp
ha. been the ruthless iconoclait—
which ii ho consolation either. The
Republicans were wont to say, with
righteous indignation, that the
Democratic party were beiug aided
by the "Oobden Olub" and by
" Britiih gold." It was itated on
good authority, the other day, that
the Oobden Olub could barely afford
to get a Square meal once a year and
publiih iti annual report, and therefore had no boodle to squander on
the American presidential election.
But the hardest blow was struck by
Ohaneey M. Depew, one of the
leaden oftthe Republican party, and,
afea. inonthi ago, a prospective
nominee on that ticket for president.
It appaari that Mr. Depew hai re-
cenOy returned to New York from
. tour In Europe. He Mates that
he fosnd til the Englfih manufacture*! in favor of Cleveland's defeat,
and, on uking for an explanation,
wu informed that the impreuion
prevailed in England that h tariff
rotation, ftmh't* mie propotwl by
the I)eirio»-atlj would be a bad thing
Iw'llHiEliiirrih irmhufarturers, for
It mOtiS enable the Americans to
compete With them in the markets
otm'maiajmninwfotiae preient syiteih the EiigttAiB-i. have
eve*ytfcing their own w«y, English
opi*dofciithat*fith frW raw ma-
terral'Alha*T(l«lii manttfacturers would
beoottre formidilble competitors to
the detrimeiat of Britiih aiinufac-
tareo.  Tlie li^qbliean wnagen
have made zealous efforts to induce
Mr. Depew to retract or modify this
statement, as damaging to their
cause, but .their attempts are unavailing, and the cry of "British
Sid" will h/ve to be abandoned or
r. Depew declared a falsifier.
Years ago Mr. Gladstone and Mr.
Bright pointed out that so long as the
Americans maintained a high tariff
they could not hope to compete with
England in the foreign markets.
Whatever can be said about tlie
abstract right! of thb Ohineso question, the almost universal experience
of those countries which have given
the matter a practical test has
demonstrated that the presence of
large numbers of the Mongolian race
in Caucasian communities—whether
English, American, Canadian or
Australian—is utterly incompatible
with the best interests, social, moral
and industrial, of the superior race.
It is perfectly useless to quarrel
with this conclusion, or to advance
fine-spun a priori arguments, ignoring the weighty facts of experience.
The three peoples who have had the
largest experience on this question
—Americans, Canadians, und
Australians—unite with one voice in
saying, "The Chinese must go I"
While all this is true, however,
nothing can justify cruel or harsh
treatment of the Chinese, who may
be under the protection of civilized
governments, on acoount of their
obnoxiousness, nnd to treat with indignity the envoys of the Chinese
government is both outrageous and
impolitic. A late Ottawa despatch
has the following, which illustrates
these remarks; "Tonight T. L.
Tuzy, of the board of war, and H.
K. Kee, secretary of the board of
punishments of His Imperial Majesty of China, along with the official
interpreter, H. Sawnniura, arrived
in the city by the C.P.R, in bond,
and were subjected to the indignity
of being kept for some time at the
station surrounded by a gaping
crowd, in charge of a policeman, who,
afterwards, accompanied them to
the Russell House, where they re-
gistered. The policeman afterwards
called on Mr. Patterson, collector of
customs for the city, who sent him
to hunt up Deputy-Commissioner
Parnialee. This official gave orders
to the policeman to have the illustrious mandarins taken to his residence, so that he might have their
papers examined. Considering that
the mission of the party was of a
diplomatic nature and that the
Chinese customs act does not apply
to such parties, some dissatisfaction
was expressed at the treatment extended the foreigners. The official
interpreter said that they left China
nearly a year ago and spent six
months in the United States, where
they were enquiring into tbe manufactures and general industries of
the country. From Springfield,
Mass., they came to Canada. From
here they go to Toronto, Niagara
Fall, and to Petrolia to examine the
oil industry, And the other manufacturing points of the Dominion.
They will remain in Canada for
some time."

ner, Lan^toi, writes: "For about two
years I was troubled with Inward Piles,
out by using Parmelee's Pills, I wu completely cured, and although four yean

After' muoh suiTorlng from Liver and
Stomach troubles, I have finally been
cured by taking Ayer's Cathartic Pilla.
I always find them prompt and thorough
in their action, and their occasional use
keeps me in a perfectly healthy condition.—Ralph Wcenian, Annapolis, Md.
Twenty-five years ago I suffered from
a torpid liver, which was restored to
healthy action by taking Ayer's Pills.
Since that time I have never beon without them. Thoy regulate the bowels,
assist digestion, and increase the appetite, more surely than any other medicine.—Paul Churchill, Haverhill, Mass.

Fills for Stomach and Liver disorders.
I suffered from a Torpid Llvor, and Dys-

boxes of Ayer's Pilla, taken in moderate
doses, restored me to perfect health.—
Waldo Miles, Oberlin, Ohio.
Avar's Pills are a superior family
medicine. They strengthen and invigorate the digestive organs, create an appetite, and remove the horrible depression and despondency resulting from

Chiuiwhack, Sept. 20.—Thia ia the
fint diy of the fair, and Chilliwhaok
is in consequence en fete. The hotel!
and boarding liouiei ire overrun with
people, md even privite oititeni have
allowed the sanctity of their homei to
be invaded in order to accomodate the
numerous vititon. But, with all the
cruth, the crowd and the hurry in
private houte or hotel, there rum u
current of genuine hospitality which,
though coating $2 per day, make! one
feel like in honored gueit. All night
long teams, arriving from up and down
river localities, nttled through the
village, not at a walk, as heavy teams
are expected to proceed, but travelling
nt a fine lively trot, proving that the
Chilliwhack farmer hai in eye to ipeed
u well ai to weight in the lionet he
breedi, Ai usual, Mn, Harrison1! fam-
oui hoitelry It the favorite with the
vititon and thii accounts for iti being
crowded from cellar to garret. The
only complaint concerning the establishment ii that its demeniiooi are too
small, but nothing wone can bebrought
against it, u the ouiaineand attendance
are everything to be deaired. The
weather thii morning is lovely and
warm, and if preient indication! hold
out we will be favored with fine weather for both dayi of the fair-which
will be a decided contrast from lait
year, when the rain and mud almoit
•poiled the success of the exhibition.
The country round ibout here looki
exceedingly well, ud through the
whole locality pervadei an air of comfort and protperity tuch ai ii not to
he found even In more favored communities.
VKatTABLB   DISPLAY.
The display in tho exhibition hall,
though not yet complete— ai en-
triei will not be closed until
the arrival of the iteamer Irving
—ii large and varied, and equal to the
display made lut year at the provincial
exhibition, although tho number of
localities competing are considerably
leu. In fact it might be said that the
exhibits on the whole ire superior to
thoie of lut year in quality if not in
number. The field and garden exhibit
of vegetable! it surprisingly large and
much mon extensive than wai to be
expected; but the increasing intereit
being manifeited yearly in both the
local and provincial allows, and the
friendly competition thua brought out
ii yearly making a marked improvement in both the number and quality
of the exhibits. Some of the vegetables
are mammoth in sine and an certainly
worthy of mention, Mr. J, W. Wens
exhibit! a mammoth king pumpkin,
weighing 167 lbs,, and meaiuringiix
feet-iMMhSHh circumference. Thu
is large, but Mr. Weill uid it hid
fully a month longer to grow md
would have reached at lealt 200 lbs.
weight. The ume gentleman alio exhibit! corn stalks over 12 feet long,
bearing 7 ears etch, which probably
outrivali the corn in the seven yean
of plenty 1 The display of turnips is
large, both in number and variety. I
meuured eoveral, choien at random,
and found them to weight from 20 to
30 lbi. each and to moaiure from 24 to
BOiniihekinctKUinfereiice. Thii average will bo found in almoit every variety exhibited. The exhibit! of iugir
beeti are much more nuineroua thin
lut year, a lign thit tho farmen Ire
beginning to inanif eit a greater intereit
in their growth. They weigh from 12
to 20 lbs. eich and meuure from 0 to
8 inchei in diimeter. One exhibit ol
lix auger beeti ii ipecioliy fine, and
will weigh over 100 lot,, or a fraction
over 3 to the bushel. Mangold wurt-
zelt make one of the largeit and best
diiplayi. I maunred a few and found
them to be from five to seven inchuin
diameter ud from 20 to 26 inchu in
length. Carrots from 20 to 22 inchu
in length Ira quite common, and gigah-
tic potatoei, cauliflower! and cibbagei
•re to be found hi almoit every exhibit. In fact almoit any ono of the
vegetable exhibits would toko first
prize at any of the agricultural exhibition! in Ontario. A iquailt weighing
100 lbs., and measuring five feet in circumference, it alto worthy of ipocul
mention. To-morrow I will give more
particular attention to the prise winner! and to their exhibin in general.
FRUIT DISPLAY.
Tha fruit diiplay ii . lurpriie, even
to the people of Chilliwhack, and to
outsider! it ii a morvel. The number
of varietiel exhibted will reach at leatt
76; all of which ere entered for priiei
and do not include ordinary varietiel.
Grrpei, fully matured ud grown in
th. open air, ar. to be found in at
leut half a doten diiplayi. The different varietiel look well and are fully
equal tn the California product. The
finest peaches I have ever seen in or
out of Britiih Columbia, are to be
found in one of the Chilliwhack exhibits, In tixo they nre equal to three
ordinary itore peaches, but it ii their
flavor and color which give them value.
Plums, currant! and other fruit, are
ilio largely displayed.
DAIltY EXHIBITS.
Thit dairy exhibits are going to
prove a Chinese puzzle to the judge! ii
growing more apparent every hour, u
additional exhibits come in. The number of really excellent rolls and tubs I
haveumpled, without finding a de-
decided fault imong them, ii surpri.-
ing; for, ilthough local fain are alwayi
inundated with dairy produce, it ii of-
ten tha cau that not half of them are
fit for table ute. Suoh will not be the
cue in Chilliwhaok, howetor, and the
judget hive no enviable job.
UVB STOCK AND POULTRY.
The entriei of bloodod itock are already large, and the lists will not be
dosed until evening. Miny fine animate have been Imported into the diitrict iir.ee thi lilt exhibition, md
theie in being entered, which will,
give lively competition and lettle many
diiputed auertiont u to who hu luc-
ceeded in punhuing the belt animula.
In poultry lome line Leghorn!, Brah-
am, Plymouth Rocki and other birds
are exhibited.
OEHERAL NOTES.
. Th. continuous arrival! of farmen
With exhibit! givei th. f.ir grounds a
V«y anlmatafd appearance,, but.the.
ihow proper cannot be uid to have
commenced. Everyone who his a niw
honl md carriage il having a turn up
and down the itreet, and the preienoe
of a large numher of pretty and graceful lady riders adds to the general animation of the icene. Almoit every
house in the village li turned into a
restaurant for the time being, where
excellent meals can be obtained at a
moderate oost. Several horse races are
arranged for to-morrow, on which it
centred much intereit, and the favorites on each lido are being warmly
backed by their friendi. Mr. Geo. W.
Ohiduy, the indefatigable and obliging
secretary of the association, ii working
like • Trojan, receiving entriei and allotting spaces for exhibit!. The right
man in the right place could not be
more appropriately applied than to Mr.
Chadsey.
On account of steamers, having ou
board some of the judge!, and some
additional exhibit!, not arriving in
time, the formal opening will not take
place until tomorrow.
