NOTES AND COMMENTS.
The story of Hiiliop Orowther,
who spoko at the great Miuionary
Cuiiformirjir in London lately, is a
romantic one, Born in an Afri-
.nii village, !.ir wns captured when
cloven yoars old, by n party of Por-
liiguri'S slave hunters, and shipped
for Aintrricii. But a British cruiser
captured the slaver, and tho little
fellow, amongst others was sent to
the mission whool at Freetown.
When about twenty ho became a
teacher in the school, but left after
some years, to devote himself to
missionary work among his people.
Here he ransomed from slavery, his
uncle, his brother and sisters,
and he also discovered and cared for
his mother, After some yean of
splendid work on the Niger, he wai
called to England, where he wai invited to visit the Queen, made a O,
D. by Oxford, and afterwards created lirst African "Bishop of the
Niger."
The jubilee of Christian mission
in Fiji was held lately, and WDM remarkable foots in connection with it
are published. Fifty yean ago, a
stranger landing in Fiji stood a fair
chance of furnishing the principal
dish at a feast. There was not
then one avowed Christian among
the natives—now there Is not an
avowed heathen. Three thousand
native tcaohers; 27,000 ohuroh
members; 1,735 schools, are some
of tho statistics whioh tell the story
of the work of fifty yean.
It appears that the Indian Government must now shoulder any odium connected with the encouragement of tlie Chinese bpiiittl trade.
The treaty of 1885 has released the
British authorities from the disgrace of forcing thii trade on China.
It appears that the Indian Government pockets the revenue derived
from this trailic with the philanthropic object of preventing private
merchants from introducing an inferior article. The Ohinese are de-
'moralized and ruined all the same;
but then they have the satisfaction
of known that the poison is the
clear quill—and that they are heing
murdered strictly according to contract, so to speak,
Viotoria is wrestling with the
formation of an Imperial Federation League. The idea of Imperial
Federation is one which'hu always
had a good deal of attraction for us;
but, in common with many other
distinguished individuals, we have
been too much occupied with matters nearer home to give the scheme
that study whioh would qualify us
to speak positively about ita merits.
On the surface, as already aaid, it
is decidedly attractive; and if the
American Federation oould be linked with an Imperial one in a bond
loose enough to give free scope in
all matters local to eaoh member,
and tight enough to secure united
and harmonious aotion in afiain of
common intereat, the world would
be some long steps nearer the reign
of universal law.
That Teachers' Convention in San-
Francisco numben tome level-headed people among its memben, if one
may judge by the telegraphic reports. Papers pointing out the failure of publio schools to cultivate
the moral side of the youthful mind
—to give mastery of the subjects
studied—and to equip the pupils for
the duties of active lifo, were read
and commented on yesterday. These
nre shots at the soft places of our
much vaunted school system, whioh
bows to the common demand for
tensel und stucco, and so squanders
its opportunities and defeats its own
professed objects.

'What would you say, Bobby, remarked tho minister who was dining with the family, "if 1 should
ask your mamma to let you have
another piece of pie!" "I would
say, 'Amon,' replied Bob devoutly.
One of tho Indian ohildren drilling for exhibition expressed hii nervousness in this way to his teaoher:

KlKOSION, July 19.—The prolonged
drought throughout northern New

a soaking rain which set in yesterday

bossy, a display ol the wildest fests of
horsemanship by the Imperial Cossacks and a stste banquet. The apartments reserved for the royal visiters
and alloted to the Emperor William
and Prince Henry are furnished exactly aa they ware left by the Empress
Catherine. The rooms an small but
extnmely luxurious, and ono of them,
the sitting room of the Empress Elisabeth which is also untouched, is an
extnnwly interesting relic.   .

by the Gsarina. The Csar and the
Emperor William, Prince Henry of
Prussia, the Citrowitoh, and the two
Emperors' suites then entered open
carriages and proceeded to the palace
of Peter the'Great. The meeting of
the omperors wu witnessed by crowds
of people tho exhibited muoh enthusiasm and choond the royal party again
and again.

A little while sinee, deeply concerned
lest New Westminster should, by

ipeedily, to the satisfaction of all

reminds us of the pranks of Victoria
papers during tho route war. When
it  was a question of the mainland
verms the island for tho  terminal
point, the dangers of gulf navigation
wero dwelt upon, until timid peoplo
woro almost afraid to undertake tho
crossing;.but whon the  matter   in
discussion was the running between

the'Bithet class, lo! the gulf   was
ever oalin as a summer lake—safe
as a half-mile ferry on a land looked

This is an age of progress and new
departures. The stage, it appeare,
Is becoming infected with the spirit
of reform. Apropos ol on article,
entitled "Stage Science," that appeared in the Saiimlai/ Ji'eview,
Madame iiistori says, iu n letter, to
that journal: . "I havo always been
of the opinion of Mile. Clairon that
the leu paint or powder an actor or
actress uses the better." In regard
to the art of "making up," sho goes
on to say: "I therefore never employed any means beyond those absolutely necessary to bring out the
character of the personage I was
representing." This letter of excellent advice concludes: "I am sure
you will agree with me that a true
artist should resist any temptation
to be horribly realistic." This may
give rise to the, thought' iu tlie mind
of the render that, perhaps, the
term, "a true artist," iu the sense in
which Mme Ristori uses the term,
would be regarded as an anachronism
by tbe average. modern play-goer.
Tbe next thing will be an anti-paint
and powder wave sweeping over the
earth, and washing the unhealthy
and disfiguring "paste" from the
fair countenances of thousands of the
misguided daughters of Eve, who
will then once more exemplify the
truth that " beauty unadorned is
adorned the most."
The  new   0. V. R.   time  table,
which comes into effect to-morrow
(Saturday), July 21st, at 1 o'olock
p.m., affects New Westminster as
follows:   The  8   o'clock   morning
train, whieh haa been leaving this
city every morning for Vancouver,
is to cease except on Mondays and
Saturdays; returning on those days,
will reach this oity at 12:15 instead
of at 1 o'clook,  as formerly.   The
fint service of the day  (except on
Mondaya and Saturdays) will bo the
daily 1 p.ra. train leaving this  oity
for the Junction, connecting there
with  the  train from the east for
Vancouver.   Returning, after connecting  at  the Junction with thn
train goiug east /rom'Vancouver, it
will roach this city at 2:10 with the
eastern mails and passengers from
the east'antl from Vancouver.   The
late afternoon service continues  as,
at present, leavinghere.nt 4;30 p.m.
for Vancouver, anil  returning, arriving at this station, at. 7:40 p.m.
lt will be seen that we still have a
double service with Vancouver, but
wo have lost  the extra third run
from Vancouver to this city.   We
have alio been  deprived,   for  the
greater part of the week,  of the
convenience of the early (8 o'olock
a.m.)  tnin from thia city to Vancouver, and all the service has been
jammed into lix houn and   a   half
and ten minutes.   Less convenient
mail arrangements arc also necessitated by these changes.   Tlie mails
(or the oast must be closed at 12:30
instead of at 13:46, and the eastern
mail will arrive at this city an hour
and ten minutes later—at 2:10   instead of 1 o'clock, as heretofore.    It
cannot be uid that the C.P.R. have
regarded the public convenience in
these "new arrangements," although
they may  be keeping within the
letter of their obligations.   It is
•aid the time table will be changed
again soon.   We hope so.   In this
oonneotion, it wonld not be amiss to
remind the C.P.R. authorities that
the present  freight arrangements
are not working in the interests  of
the  merchants of .thii city.   The
freight clerks, we believe, have been
removed  to Vanconver,   and  all
(night for this city is   transferred
there, causing a deny in reaching its
destination here of two or  three
days, in some  cases.   Thii  cannot
but be an inconvenience and loss to
our merchants, and it is to be hoped
the O. P. R. may see their way clear
to make ''other arrangements."

matter, when we are olilij-eil to.
The great national prohibition convention in Montreal litis lately closed
its labors, and decided ngainst Ihe
formation of a third political party
in the Dominion. The arguments
pro and con were well sustained by
the various .speakers. The most
pronounced nnd earnest temperance
workers were in favor of a third political party, but the conservative,
cautious, and popular leaders in the
older temperanco movements were
in favor of their present connections
with tlio two existing politionl
parties in Dominion politics.
Rov. Dr. Sutherland, tlio leador
in the third party proposition, secm-
od to have lost all hopo in the present politionl parties, although thero
arc consistent temperance men in
both parties; but tho impression
seems to provail with those who nre
in favor of the establishment of a
third political-prohibition party that
party, with temperance politicians,
is the first consideration. Mrs.
Youmans, the wellknownHemper-
ance lecturer, who was in this province some time ago, it will be remembered, wns present nt tho convention, and delivered one of her
characteristic addresses. She said
that if ever women get to lie M Ps. nt
Ottawa, they will make short work
of the liquor trailic. Her left-
handed compliinonts to tho "lords of
creation" as to tlieir management of
the temperance question were
amusing, if not flattering.
In tho course of her address Mrs.
Youmans illustrated her remarks by
tlie following rustio scene: At Sandusky, Ohio, while travelling on the
railway, she looked out of the car
window and saw a man, and a woman, apparently his wife, hoeing
corn. The man looked up at the
can, stopped hoeing, a.id kept on
looking until the train was out of
sight, and, for all the speaker knew,
was looking yet. But the woman
just looked up once, and then hoed
right straight along. In applying
the illustration, Mrs. Youmans said:
'The women of Oanada hate tnkfen
up the hoe of prohibition and will
heep on hoeing until the last saloon
is hoed out of this Dominion."
When, on her late visit to British
Columbia, she met the Hon. George
Foster, and knowing him since his
boyhood, she familiarly addressed
him: "George Foster, why don't
you put all Oanada under Indian
reserve!" She had visited the Indian reserves and found them protected with prohibition regulations,
so far as sho knew, nnd the idea
struck her very forcibly that " Indians and squaws were preferable to
drunkards." If British Columbian!
wish to keep out of the way of this
great prohibition wave that is rolling
over this North American continent they had better look out for
some other planet, or elevated part
of this one, or join the prohibition
fleet before it is too late; for, just as
sure os Noah's flood happened, so
will this prohibition wave extend
from shore to shore. All Anglo-
Saxondom, from the torrid to the
frigid zone, is in a stato of revolution on this and kindred questions,
and we must make up our minds
whether wc will sink or swim.

*' You should havo tho oxporieneo of a
shoplifter detective to ninlui-ptand jtiat how
cleverly some of theso women work their
game."   So spoko a detective to a rep-ii-tor,
"Tell ns something about shoplifting,
won't you?" ■wa* the roriucat of jtho
writer. "Did yon over see any bold' str-Stcs
of work ?"
" Did I ever see any hold atrokos of
work?   Well, I think I havo.
" Generally tho shoplifter carries a bag
with BtrapB going around tlio waist, into
which sho can easily drop anything ehe can
get hold of.
'.' I saw a woman onco drop boiuo feathers
ln at tho waist, I followed hor from place
to place till sho had taken a good deal.
Then I arreated her.
" But when wo got hor to tho office not a
hag did she have. That woman had fixed her
dress so that the whole front of it from waist
to bottom made a bag, and thon piled in
round hor feet were tho feathers ahd lots, of
other things.
"One woman played it on me nicely. Sho
put hor hands behind her waist while I was
taking her to tho ofllce, untied the straps,
dropped tho bag, and what could I do about
It?   She was a professional.
" Ono oftho many thing*, forthe storing
away of fino goods ie a muff. Tlie woman
puts hor mufi'on a pile of handkerchiefs,
nnd while she examines something with ono
hand quietly pulls liandkerchii.-J'-j into her
muff with tho othon I havo found mutFs jam
full of handkerchiefs, ribbons end such
things,
"These wire screens you see here on the
edgo ofthe counter hnve stopped thut thing*
good deal.
"Onco I, saw a woman tako an*-nihi.rell»V-
Then alia walked down io n pawnshop. Coming back aho took another. Ahd ho on till I
bad seen her take more than half a dozen.
Of course she only took ono at a Hmoi for With
two umbrellas sho would havo beon ewe-
pected."
"Aro shoplifters well dressed ?"    '
" Yes, many of them aro. Homo of tliem
nro kleptomania*!.*., taking littlo things nt first,
and, if not detected," l.oi-piiig it up Ull they
havo a regular passion for it.
" Pickpockots usually dross well, nntl many
of them look real tony.
" Often wc catch little chihlrcii just learning tho trade. Up in a storo hut week I
caught a littlo gii'l taking a pnekutbook.
Threo had boen stolon witjiin au hour, and
thefts had boon reported for sevoral day.*..
Sho aaid thore was uo ono with iicr, but I
think thero was.
" Thero aro plenty of women pic It pockot*?,
but they aro not like the men in thoir way oi
working,
" Peoplo don't suspect a woman very often,
and they havo away of working thatia very
quiet and effective
"They aro especially rlevor at opening

Oliver IV. Holmes and (he Printer'** Devil.
Ono of thoso bright hitter day,*, tlie his-
toi'itm sat on a pile oi boards on a sunny
corner of a wharf and lazily watched tlio
crew of a down Eaat schooner loading in a
cargo of flour.

Jim dropped lightly*into iiiieftlotc.
Ho had attempted to learn tliu printing
trado in his younger days, and a part of his
duty was to carry printed slips of articles intended for publication to their authors for
corrections, Thia timo Jim told of his experience with Oliver Wendolt Holmes.
One cold winter's night ho carried a proof
Blip of somo medical article to Cambridge
and waited in the hill whilo (he doctor road
it through.
Coming from the warm hall into tho cold
winter air, the 10-year old boy became
drowsy, and curling np in a big easy chair
went fast to sleep.
How long, he slept ho didn't know, bnt
half-way between waking aud dreauUugcuoe
a voice:
" Honry I"
"Robertj oh, Bobertr
"FrancisI   I eay, Francis\*
"Charles, John, Peter, Oeorge, Augustas,

Jim dozed away, yet partly conscious that
somebody was calling somebody. Again
came the doctor's-voice:
"Oh, the devil I"
This did wakon Jim, and ho eamo forward
at onco to tho door whore tho doctor stood
waiting,
"Ah, yon small Beelzebub," said tho doc*
tor, "I soo yon know your name."
Jim grinned responsive and pocketed a
douceur that haB fixed tho incident in his
mind for a score of years.—[Boston Itecortl.

thero are but few.
"There is about ap much invested iu

I was badly troubled with Pimples on

more than temporary good.' Ayer'a Bar-

A Perfect Cure,

I was troubled with Bolls, and my

Humeral as n Marksman.
The statement that Gabriel Dumont
had been invited by the local gun club
to participate in one of their weekly
matches has caused a flutter among
local marksmen. Dumont has been
famous for years throughout the greater

marksman among the MetiB, and it is
stated that a few days ago, whilo in a
neighboring town, ho shot down with a
Winchester a penny piece which was
thrown into the air while ho had his
back turned, by a man who stood fully
half nu aero frum him. Duinont's
friends state that ho and Buffalo Bill
shut at a mark shortly after the rebellion, when Kiel's lieutenant sought

Tk« Drltlih datable Militia.
Our dispatches from Ottawa to-duy
convey the intelligence lhat the deputy adjutant goneral states the militia
force of  British Columbia to be in a
deplorable condition.   There is a great
deal of truth in this statement u far
u the equipment!, armt, etc., of the
militia It concerned, but at far u the
general phiiiuue and drill of the men
goes they will compere favorably with
th* great bulk of the Canadian militia.
And if the force is in a "deplorable,
condition" whose fault it iti   Som*
eighteen months ago three officers residing  in Vancouver, who had teen
service in the Northwest Rebellion,
applied for permission to raise one or
more companies  iu  Vancouver.    It
happened about tlmt time that a civilian,
who knew no more about soldiering
than he did about the north polo, but
had considerable   political influence,
made application also to raiso a company.   The application of the military
men wat promised "due consideration,"
while the civilian wu promised the
privilege of raising the company u
soon as it could be done without creating public censure.   This manner of
bringing the  force  into nn efficient
state is rather novel, and if this principle of favoritism bu been carried
into all existing corps iu the province
the condition of tho force mult be deplorable.   The Deputy Adjutant General knew all about this deplorable
state of affairs aud reported it to Otta-
wu, und yet we have heard  of no attempt on the part of the militia department to bring about a change for the
better.   If tho government desires to
keep the militia in an eftioient state
why doet it not furnish the corps with
proper equipments.   If   ordered to
march to-morrow two thirds of the
men's   outflitt  would   have   to be
purchased    in    the    stores   round
town,   Tho   old-fuhioned   knapsack
hat  been superceded by the vtlise
equipment, but yet the old style it supposed tu bo used by the militia.   The
knapsacks in stores in thit province are
rotten and worthless, and 110 officer of
judgment would allow hia men to enter
on a campaign with them. The blanket
pack, with proper shoulder straps, are
much more preferable ind serviceable.
The riUea furnished tbe British Columbia militia (short Snider) require a
thorough overhauling by the government armourers before they could be
depended on for accurate shooting.
The heavy guns supplied to the artillery aro as suitable for field service in
this province u a gunboat on wheels,
and this the government knows per
fectly  well.   In faet the militia of
British Columbia have been, and still
are, shamefully treated, and it is' a
great wonder the officers have been
able to keep the eorps together and
keep up the enthusiasm which still exists.   The Westminster Rifle Association, an almost purely military body,
applied some montlis ago for a number
nf tested Martini and Snider rifles to
enable  them, to   make   progress in
marksmanship.    The application was
received and "taken into consideration," and that ended the matter.   If
the militia force It in a deplorable condition the government alone  is to
blame, for they cortainly have shown
no disposition to make and keep it efficient.   But we hope the militia department will now reoognize the im-
trortonce of our provincial force, and
use no timo in supplying tli.r nrmy
necessary equipments, not for parade
purposes, but for active service.   And
111 spite of tlie " ileploriihlo C'liiilitiini"
of the British Columbia mtlitit they
are ready tn take the field to-morrow,
and will do ns good work ns auy body
ot the  Canadian  forces,  regular or
otherwise under much less favorable

Mclalynr * Hulk'. Minstrels.
Tlio largest audience wo havo seen
in the Opera House filled it last night,
not only filled it but overflowed it in
streams into the street.   One hundred
Seople were turned away from tho
oors, unable to obtain seats; notwithstanding dozen! of chain wan retorted
to,'l»iiTfe^ktiwI,;aitting room.
The walls, the passages wayt, the win
dows, were lined and filled with people ttanding. In the gallery the crush
wu quite as great. People were packed u thick as urdines in a box. At
to the performance, it wu the finest
minstrel one we have ever teen. There
wu nothing commonplace about it.
The whole programme wu rendered
with a iparkle of humor, a brilliancy
of repartee and a rollicking fun, which
we have not u yet teen equalled by
any other minttrel troupe. The interlocutor wai an artist in hi* role, u
indeed were the end men. So were
the tambourines. The tinging wu
very fine tnd encored to the ooho.
Take the whole performance, and it
was full of brilliant repartee and rich
humor, if not real wit. Space forbids
an extended aud analytical or individual noltce'to-night.but we can assure
our readers that the minstrels aro far
ahead of auy "African" actor* which
we have teen in thit state or any other.
Suoh real enjoyable, genuine bubbling
fun wu absent from even tbe but acting of the kind we have yet seen here.

Eiiiion Co-OHbun.—Your eorrei-
pondent from here, of the 14th inst,
by hit able and interesting letter hu
caused quite a flurry of excitement
among many of the ratepayers, who
were ignorant of the "Ooercionville"
towntite icheine, and they are comini*
to th* conclusion that parties who
would go into * ichtme to pack a ward
whioh li not their own are probably
"on th* boodle." and not fit ptrtltt to
htvt the hind-ling of municipal funds.
With regard tn the new loin bylaw, it
seems, from your correspondent, the
amount hu risen sinco the last council
mot, from six to eight thousand dollars, and if many more discontented
voters come round it may rite again,
It it indeed curious that two months
ago a turn of 13,600 only wu required
tnd now it it eight thousand, or more;
it leadt tome to believe there is some
truth in the report that certain councillor! and voters have been offered
water-lots at $60 eaoh, if a certain
road is planked; but if it ii not planked the loti an to be $200 each. Of
count thit ii not "buying votes," as
tho roid hu to be planked anyhow,
and the owner of the loti will do it
himself and charge the extn (160
per lot to pay for the planking.
The neighborhood of thete water lot!
ia now known u " Boodle City." It
might be more appropriate to compare
oome of our counclllon to Tweeds and
Buckleyt than Beacontfieldt and Glad-
ttonei. The Municipal Pound By-law
meett with a good deal of opposition,
but Is • good law and one that ihould
be ttrictiy carried out. Partial are
talking of trying to bunt it, which, ae-
cording to some, can be euily done, as
it ii quietly reported our council is not
a legal body. They are not properly
constituted according to their letten
patent, and even further, people say
the municipal soliciton havo advised
them so; but not a word of this hss
come from the councillors, although it
may check the Loin By-Law, at there
is no legal party to borrow tho money
on behalf of the ratepayers, and the
only way wc can get a legal oouncil is
for the present ono to surrender iti
letten patent and apply for new onee.
The present councillors cannot legally
appoint two otlier councillors to make
n full board, without lirst giving the
doctors a ohauce to elect them, and the
questiou is, what wards are to oleet the
new councillors) Aro some of tho
wards to have two councillors, or are
new wards to be formed 1 It it the
opinion of many of the ratepayers that
the doings of oar so-called councillors
would form a lit subject for inquiry by
tho lieutdntnt-governor. Should our
council be an illegal body, we hate riot
any assessment roll; taxes cannot be
collected. Altogether, it ii a nice
meat our municipality it in. Excuse
the length of these notes, but tbey
may be tho means of bringing the Interest of non-resident taxpayer! to our
oouncil proceedings and straightening
tilings up.
