NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Tlio reports presented ut tbe Fan
Presbyterian counoil in London,
bring out the fact tbat that denomination counts some twenty million
adherents, who give about $30,000,
000 annually for the support of the
church. The mission staff numbers
500, and 00,000 communicants hare
been gathered from among the
heathen.
We have a statement from Philadelphia that the high license system
has added largely to the business of
the brewers, a corresponding reduction having taken place in the
whisky and wine business. As beer
is a milder and, generally speaking,
a purer liquor than whisky and
wine—or what is called wine—thia
appears to be a gain, so far as it
King Milan of Servia appears to
be rather a bad lot. In addition to
other little weaknesses, he is t gambler, and when in Vienna, Some
time ago, threw away over $150,
000 in a couple of nights and had
to pledge a beautiful jeweled scime-
tar, an heirloom, to get enough to
pay his debts. He has never redeemed the weapon, and it is still
in a bankers hands, in the Austrian
capital.
The Colonist has a story that a
woll known lawyer at the capital
has been boycoteed by the Chinese.
A Ohinese client has refused to go
on with a case in which he was engaged, his Ohinese cook has left
without warning, and the heathen
who sawed his wood and weeded lis
garden has followed . suit. After
this, who will dare to say that John
is not adopting the ideas and
methods of civilization 1
The Times gives currency to a
very ugly story from India, lt appears that a detatchment of soldiers
(European) was sent on a journey,
while still suffering from the effects
of a fatiguing march, and under circumstances which showed the
greatest want of consideration for
their health and comfort Several
deaths resulted; and it is to bo
hoped that the officer responsible
will be made to smart for his brutal
carelessness,    (iii »r.

The visit of the Kaiser to the
Czar is bringing out some interesting
stories of royal junketings. It is
surmised that the Czar was well
pleased at the shortness of hii
guest's visit—not that he disliked
his company but on account of the
expense. When the Czar himself
went visiting the Emperor of Austria, it cost the latter over $200,
000 a day to entertain him—a
pretty big bill, even for royalty; and
the Russian treasury is generally
understood to be anything but plethoric.
A story which looks like new
light on the Parnell letter ease,
comes from London. Hon. R. Brett
is skid to have stated in a speech
delivered July 23, that he was,
eighteen months ago, offered, by "an
ex-member of parliament" documentary evidence of the complicity of
Mr. Parnell with the Phrenix Park
murderers. A pledge of secrecy as
to the source of his information and
a payment of $1000 were demanded.
"Mr. Brett refused, and shortly afterward the -Ti'mei came out with its
letters. The "nxmember-1 is identified by the gossips with a man
who was read out of tlie Irish pary,
as worse than useless by Parnell,
and who has bitterly hated hia
former leador ever since.
Japan lias 250 newsbapers, 1,000
miles of railway and 2,000 or 3,000
miles of telegraph line. A Japanese reporter collects news, but does
not in any case write it. He tells
what he knows to news writers.
The Smith family is numerous in
England and Wales. The census
places Ihe number of individual
Smiths in those countries at 355-
Sll, which is more than the wholo
population of Dublin,
tl is said that in some parts of
Afrioa lluire are birds with billsayard
in length, lt will thus be seen that
there is no call for plumbers on the
dark continent.
A great deal has been written
about Ihe best position during sleep.
At this season the best position
dining sleep is under n mosquito
canopy.

THE   lliltK   I'OSIlSKSI.
Loniio.n, Aug. 2.— Despatches from
Zanzibar state that two native messengers who were captured from one of
the earliest exhibitions by tribes in tbe
Ugald district bordering on the Albert
Nyanza, and who escaped last April,
have arrived there, and thoy report
that the situation of Emin Bey is very
difficult, provisions being scarce and
the feeling of discouragement ainong
his troops vory great. In April Emin
Bey received a summons, from the
Mahdi, dated at Khartoum, to surrender or disband hu followers. He also
received letters from Lupton Bey advising him to submit to the Mahdi's
terms in order to save the lives of the
Europeans at Khartoum and Wadelai.
It is reported that the advance of the
Mahdi's force has been confirmed.
Emin Bey decided to surprise him. He
considered Lupton Bey's letter a forgery, and the non-arrival of Stanley
disturbed him greatly. Emin was then
in receipt of the reports that Stanley
was hemmed in between the Mabcda
country and the Albert Nyanza, and
also that he had been compelled to
divert his course to an unknown route.
1 NEW WAY OF SW1NM.IS0.
Quebec, Aug. 2.—E, C. Barrow, a
broker, was yesterday swic died out of
$250 in Enulish gold and Bank of England notes by an unknown individual
dressed as a priest, who called himself
Father Hayes, of Baltimore. Ho went
to the broker's office snd said he was
going to England nnd wanted to change
a check for sterling money and appointed an hour for an interview at St. Patrick's Presbytery. Just beforo the
broker arrived thete the swindler rang
tbe bell, asked for the Father Superior, who evidently wat absent and
when told so he asked leave to enter
and write a note. No sooner had he
done so than the broker arrived and
asking for Father Hayes was shewn
into the room where the bogus priest
was. There Barrow handed over ths
money to the sharper, who, saying he
would go into the next vooiit and get a
check, went out and never retuined.
The broker waited until he saw that
he was swindled, when he gave an
alarm, but it waa too late and the thief
got off. The cassock and hat worn by
him were afterwards found in the
ohureh adjoining.

Washington advices of Aug 2
bring the somewhat startling information thai Senator Biddlebcrger
(who it fie anyhow 1) wants to get
into the hur' of the Britisli linn.
Speaking in the senate yesterday,
on the fishery treaty, this hair-ntis-
ing son of Mars sriid that the "Uniteil
Stat|*s "would never be a national
government" till tlioy "had whipped
England for the thM time." In
concluding Biddleberger declared
he would as soon make a treaty of
commerce with the Fiji Islanders as
with the British govornroent.and that
while the so-called American Democ-
tacy might with propriety make such
a treaty, the Republican party could
not do so. The senator is a Republican, of course, but even the Republican party can not be fairly
judged by such irresponsible ravings
as are attributed to the belligerent
Riddleberger, if it has tumbled from
its erstwhile lofty perch and now
grovels in tho mud of Anglo-phobia,
monopoly protection, and free
whiskey.
The queries and remarks of our
correspondent, "Argus," in another
column, are very pertinent, on a
subject whioh is second to none in
importance to this city and district,
viz., tho improvements at the Fraser
mouth. It must be admitted that
the authorities are all too tardy in
getting about the expenditure of the
rather meagre appropriations mado
during the two last sessions by tlio
Dominion parliament for this much
neglected work. The total amount
to be expended, this season, it was
expected, is $20,000. A masterly
Inactivity seems to pervade the department, however. We suppose
the authorities know what they are
doing, but to those outside the ring,
It would appear that greater expedition might be practiced with good
results. We understand that Mr.
F. 0. Gamble, Dominion government
agent at Viotoria, is having the
plans, etc., for the river improvements prepared, and that work wilt
ensue as soon as everything is ready,
but more than this we have not been
able to ascertain. Mr. Gamble is
the only authorised agent for the
Dominion government in publio
works, it would appear, in the'province, and he is stationed at Victoria. While the important work
of improving the navigation of the
Fraser is in progress there should
certainly be a resident government
engineer at Westminster. In fact,
with this and other public works in
progress und ln prospect in this city
and district, a Dominion officer such
as we have mentioned should be stationed here permanently.

BY-LAW NO.-
We know of no country nor peo
pie that is undergoing such a fierce
struggle for national existence aa the
old "greeft isle" and its devoted sons.
The great majority of the people of
Ireland are in favor of home rule,
although they may not be exactly
ajned au to the conditions of that
rule. Even the Ulster people feel,
and have always felt, that England
tro itud them more us a conquered
people than as brethren having equal
rights. To those who know tho history of Ireland, aud the origin of the
preient landlord system, there can
be little doubt as to the justice of
the aim of all those who favor home
rule. The oloud that bungs over the
prospect of Irish hopes at present is
veiy heavy. Parnell, their great
leader, is accused of the gravest of
crimes by the great mouthpiece of
tht English aristocracy, The pope,
their rteogniied spiritual father (the
Irish Protestants, of course, are excepted), has declared against them
by the "rescript." And it would
teem as if an end to all their bright
hopes of redemption, temporal and
spiritual, had come. The question
naturally arises: What is to be the
outcome of all this apparent confusion in their march to final emancipation 1 The only answer that wo
know is that the.harder the struggle
the greater tbe victory. If tbeir
cause is good, it must finally succeed,
and the fires of persecution will
only burn out the dress. If Ireland
had got home rule at once, it would,
very likely, have proved a curse to
them, because they would hot have
been prepared for it. If the people
of Ireland were united, no power on
earth oould hold them in chains.
Religious superstition, fanned by
designing politicians, has been the
bano ol Ireland. If all the religious
denominations were to amalgamate
under the one Head, and burn up
all the rubbish (hat centuries have
colleoted, home role would he established at once. "

The  London  Upectnitor (Liberal-
Uniohist) in a July number  of  its
paper   states  at  some   length the
grounds on which the Unionists oppose imperial federation.    Some of
these grounds are worthy   the   consideration of imperial federation enthusiasts in the new world as well
as the old.   It  is  urged, amongst
other things that as the  great   colonies and dependencies grow,  their
views of foreign policy will beoome
more and more unlike the views of
the people of thn United Kingdon;
hence the foreign policy of a federal
parliament of the empire would be
so vacillating, feeble, nnd unready
as to be worthless.   Canada   would
take the reins oue  bf  England's
hands on one side,   and Australia
on  the  other, while south Africa
would jerk them away  on African
issues; so that from this aspect federation would be about as hopeful as
an attempt to co-ordinate from London the motions of a horse in England, u butEtlo in Canada,   a   kangaroo in Australia, nnd   an   ostrich
in south Africa.   The Spectator goes
on to inquire if any sane Australian
assembly   would   vote hard-earned
taxes to prevent France from over
throwing the independence of Italy!
If any intelligent citizens of Quebec
or Toronto, with their minds   bent,
perhaps, on securing free trade with
the United States, would vote money
to keep the French out of the New
Hebrides? or any British assembly in
Africa, whose wholo mind was bent
on securing Delegoa Bay   for   their
confederacy, contribute their  hard-
earned means for  the  purpose  of
checking the designs of   Bussia  on
Persia  or  Afghanistan!   Nay, it
asks, would British subjects   themselves—anxiously watching tho increase of the navies of Franco and
Bussia, and taxed (o the utmost to
keep their own navy in (ull efficiency
to  meet  such  a combination—be
wilting to accept one or two   more
stringent taxes in order to check the
advance of the  German   power  in
New Guinea, orthe  rush   of  the
Ohinese  into  New  South Wales 1
These   questions  are hard nuts for
imperial   federationists   to   crack,
looked at from a disinterested standpoint, but wo presume that, viewed
through   imperial   federation   eyeglasses, the nuts  aforesaid   will be
found lo have  neither  shells  nor
corners,   and  will be swallowed at
one mouthful and converted into imperial federation chyme.

Kid to a reporter:  .    o .-A   -i
"liyou look into thbivlndowa ofthe
con El-cU oners in Milan, Home, Paris,
Madrid, Berlin, Vienna, Copenhagen,
Amsterdam or London, you will nodoubti
lm surprised to find that more than one
half: of tho show-pieces congist of chocolate. If you enter ibe storesjou wilj^fiijA
that seven out of ten customers select
chocolate confeotlons.
"At tho morning mcal.dn'tlio bettor
class of European hotels, you will see
threo in five sipping cocoa. The European
physician prescribes some form of cocoa
for convalescent patients, and when your
lady friends are afflicted with that pre-
vaili ig sickness of tho nineteenth ocntui'7
—no i*ves—he will advise ber to drink and
ent chocolate,
"It Is really surprising that olioeolate
bas not heretofore taken the position ia
this country that it really deserves. It is
a wholesome, palatablo and nutritious
confection, and the only reason thai! can
be assigned foi the fact thnt it is not the
leading confection is that on account of
competition—tho life of trade—but few
factories, up to tho present time, havo
tried to make tbe best class of goods, such
goods as will make friends und create a
demand.
"The dealer must create the demand
for goods. The manufacturer cannot
create a publio taste. The dealer can
only do this by using caocolatoa of tho
best grade."
Chocolate is prepared from the almond
shaped beans of Theobronm cacao, n treo
so named by the great L-inntBtis because
, its product was fit to be the" fr,ult of the
gods. It is cultivated ia. Mexico,,tho
northern States of South America, and
in the West Indies.

SOME FAVORITE CORDIaTS.
|Pleasant-I'Iuvorcd Drinks and What Tlioy
Are Made of,
Wliafc is called "green mint" In Darkrooms is a concoction of alcohol and sng-
Itir wi th a little essence- uf peppermint in it
|o give it tone, and the squeezing of spin-
tell leaves to produce its deadly color.
iThat is thecase if the drinker is lucky
lenough to get the real French -article.
Y'he imitation is colored with  aniline
I It is the most harmful of aU foreign
ftim-diuls if it Is not genuine, and tho least
tndmirable If it is properly made;  Tho
■other cordials aro well understood;
Maraschino is made from a plant that
•hrows in Cyprus.  Zara is tho great mar*
Ijtot place for it.  It is distilled and embodied in a syrup of alcohol and sugar.
Vermouth Is a very cheap whiter wina
Iworth only five or six cents a quart whero
ffjt is made.  It is sweetened nnd flavored
Frith the essence of several harmless aro-
|rnatic plants. That Is the Italian. Tho
French wine used as a basis for tbo vcr-
f uouth of that oountry is a little betteiv-
t>\ual, in fact to tho lowest grade of
pauterne. .
( Kummel Is not tinctured with anise
bed, though it tastes as if it were.  Its
piste comes from the distilled essence of
Kho seeds of a plant of that name. These
poods aro as hard as stone.
- Anisette la what its namo   implies,
tvirscliwasser is flavored with the prod-
Jet of squeezed cherries, pulp, skins, pits,
End all.  Cnartreuse gets its flavor from
twenty plants, all tonic or aromatic.
1 Tho basis of all these cordials is spirits
Lad sugar, only excepting vermouth, and
nto that the Italians put tea per oent, of
Klcohol. - I*****—      .,„,

roar bf .the traffic drowned tho fen-bit,
quaveriu'g'voiop. ■'Careless sliou'dt-rs jostled iiiin, hurrying feet trampled hi!'ii,aud
thus a squaro waa passed and but ono
paper sold. There at the corner he stood,
blind and fearful, until a bootblack took
his sleeve and guided bim over the perilous crossing.
Another square was traversed, and still
another, with a pitying .hand to guide
him now and then, and still but one sale
made. At last, weary and hopeless, with
the thick dust choking him, and his voico
gone, ho gave it up nnd crept despairingly
into a corner out of tho way of the stream.
Once or twice he murmured something,
but nobody bceded, or if tlioy did, passed
on, casually wondering what ailed him.
Thus for a long time ho crouched and
muttered, until a little girl, poorly
dressed, noticed hlra. Moved with pity
sho drow near.     »
"Did you want anything!-" olio timorously asked.
"Water—for God's sako, waterl" he
hoarsely whispered.
Sho dropped the heavy bundle she was
carrying and looked around. There was
no place in sight where water could bo
procured but a saloon across the street,
where troops of noisy men were constantly
passing in au out, and whence as the
doors, swung'.to and'fro; came tho sound
Of boisterous talk aud laughter.
She hesitated a mpiiinutiind thon darted
across. .Pushing back the heavy doo;a
with difficulty she entered.      [ '*-'■'
In a few moments she reappeared with
a goblet of fresh, cool water. Joyously
tripping back she placed it In the bauds
of tho afflicted man.       g.... _■-.«*_
With , hn **eager cry ho snatched the
glass and drank aud drank till not u drop
remained. Then wltli his long fingers he
fished the bits, pf ice from the. bottom and
crunched them* greedily. -V''.
"God bless you, my dear," hegnsped as
ho swallowed the last picco and wiped his
chin with his sleeve,
"Now, then, move on," ftrowlcd the
guardian of the peace at their elbow, and
; the littlo girl shouldered her bundle and
returned the glass, while the blind man
shuffled around the corner and disappeared.        ^ -
TAKING   HIM   DOWN;
Tlio Countryman Gets the Bettor ofthe
High nnd Lofty Hotel Clerk.    >
A lank, limp, raw-honed countryman,
ono of those mon Who travel with ah oilcloth gripsack, and who wear rakishlinen
dusters and carpet slippers, leaned over
the desk of an up-town hotel—at least so
the story runs—and informed the clerk
that he'd like "tew hev a room for a few
days."
Tho clerk happened to be talking.horse
JUst then, and ho paid about as iimtch attention to tho countryman as ho would to
a tar baby. After waiting iu open-
mouthed silence for a whilo the stranger
tapped the olerk on tbe'P.rnvto,draw his
attention. - He got a supercilious nod for
his pains, nnd tho cle?k continued to explain to bis friends why he had put his
salary on the animal that didn't Win.   ...
Still, in silence and patience the poor
yokel rested against the desk. Finally ho
blurted out a query as to whether or not
the "hoouse wos goin' to. put him up."
Not the least notice from theclerk, who
was now explaining his reason for playing
a horso for placo when he. ought to have
bet on him to win.
At last, seeing that tho coun try man was
completely squelched, ho Jabbed tlie' register in front of him, flung a pen at him,
inn way that spattered ink all over tho
disiingue's linen duster and glared at tho
chop fall on visitor, whilo ho scrawled his
name on the'register.   -'
"Do you know," the yokel asked when
ho had finished, "thet you put mo in

"It is a fact,not generally known,"

becomes skinproof, and holding th* insect by tho feet ahd giving her fall liberty of action, you can see her drive her
weapon against the impenetrable surface with a force that lifts her body with

Mr. F. Ii. Raitt, of Ladners, was in
the city to-day and gave us a call. He
olaims that correspondents have misrepresented the condition of affairs at
Ladners in connection with the proposed loan for road improvements.
It seems that both supporters and
oppositionists tn the loan have been
purchasing smsll psrcols of land in
each ward of the municipality for the
purpose of carrying and defeating the
hill. How the affair will end with
everything in suoh a mixed state it
is Impossible to foresee, but it is evident the fight will be very bittor. Mr.
Raitt says he and others have boen called boodlers because they bought in the
Guichon townsite. He bought his lot
in a legitimate manner, paid $50 for
it and thinks there cannot be muoh of
a boodle game about the transaction.
Aa to the price of the lots being 850
each if the bylaw is carried, and 8200
each if the bylaw is voted down, Mr.
Raitt says is sheer nonsense, or at
least a consideration he knows nothing about.

Sunday school went down to the North
Arm to enjoy their annual pic-nic.
About 150 children, youngsters and
adults, crowded the boat, all smiling
and happy and seemingly intent on
having a good time. Loads of good
things were taken aboard which prevented all chance of a famine occur-
ing during the day. A noticeable
feature was that almost every young
lady was escorted by a cavalier, and
although Till* Columbian brought this
happy state of affairs about we have
not yot received the substantial recognition which wo consider ourselves
rightfully entitled to. However, wo
are philanthropists and our only aim
here below is to bring pleasure, happiness and wealth to others.
That Hatl.l.oj.k "w."
Several evenings since the Salvation Army captain announced ou the
street that on Thursday (nut) evening
Staff Capt. Young, from Winnipeg,
and other strangers would be at llie
barracks, and that there would be a
regular hallelujah "W." "Some of
you think you know what that moans"
added the captain, "but at any rate
come along and see," sho concluded in
the hearty manner of the army. The
knowing ones—and uf this sort wore
tho entire audience—sottlod in their
minds at onco, and lost no time in
communicating tho same tu their
neighbors, that hallelujah "W" meant
"hallelujah wedding," of course The
Salvation barracks was crowded last
night, as a consequence, with old men
and maidens, youug men and children
and even elderly ladies. The gum
from Winnipeg, „c, wero on hand all
right, and a good rousing meeting was
held, Nevertheless, a great many
people (if the expression may bo allowed) were kicking themselves all the
way home ; for nothing that could be
construod into a wedding of any sort
happened during the evening. And
now the "knowing ones" are divided
in opinion as to what the "W" means
anyway. Some think it must stand
for "welcome," others for "worship,"
while a good many declare it means
"whoop 'er up!"

Mr. Thomas Ballard, Syracuse, N. Y.,
writes*. "I have been afflicted for nearly
a year with that inost-to-be-dreaded disease Dyspepsia, and at times worn out
with pain and want of sleep, and after
trying almost everything recommended,
1 tried one box of Parmelee's Valuable
Pills. I am now nearly well, and believe
they wilt cure me. I would not be without tliem for any money."

The funeral rites in connection -with
the borinl of the late Very Rev. John
J. Joncknu were held in St. Andrew's
pro-cathedral, Victoria, on Wednesday
morning, and were of a most impressive character. The church wus
crowded to its utmost capacity, peoplo
of all denominations who knew and
respected the deceased for his many
sterling qualities being pr.sent. The
services commenced with the chanting
of lauds for the dead, low masses being
celebrated at the side altars by Kev.
Fathers Nicolaye aud Verbake. These
were followed by t solemn requiem
high muss at the high altar, Bishop-
elect Lcmmens being the celebrant.
Rt.-Rov. tiishop iiootens rendered
pontifical assistance, Father Coroeiller
being deacon, Father Deichman sub-
deacon, and Father Van Nevei master
of ceremonies. The clergy were simply vested in surplices, the deacons
wearing dalmatics, and the bishops rich
black velvet copes, which were exchanged for chusabies during mass.
At the conclusion of the requiem macs,
Bev. Father Brabant ascended the
pulpit and dolivered tho funeral oration. The last rites were then performed, when the procession re-formed
and, passing down the church, the
casket was conveyed to the vault bo-
neath the sanctuary, where all that
was mortal of the deceased priest was
laid in it niche specially prepared for
the body. Up to the time the casket
was olosed the features retained the
calm, placid appearance of one in a
gentle sleep, and showed not the
slightest sign of decay. The casket
containing the remains is of metal,
and, although of tho most costly de*
sign and finish, is quite plain. It is
hermetically sealed, and is beautifully
stained in imitation of polished rosewood. When placed in the vault it
was literally buried from night beneath
a mass of (lowers—eros.-es und wreaths
of the choicest bloseoms being heaped
in profusion ou tbo lid.

The Frasor nonth.
Editor Columbian.—Have you any.
infonnation with respect to the government grant of 20,000 dollars for improvements in the ohannel at the mouth of the
Fraser? Who Is to conduct the work T
On what plan is the money io be spent,
and when Ib the work to be commenced*
It is very easy to make promises; but it
is another thing to perform and fulfil
these promises. It is just possible thit
the summer may pass away and nothing
be done in the matter. Past experience
gives just cause for fears that the mouth
of the river will either be neglected or
mismanaged, No novice' is capable of
planning and executing the necessary
Work for insuring tho best results In tho
expenditure of the money appropriated,
A feasible plan founded on natural principles, will be half the battle; but if the
work is attempted without a thorough
experimental plan it will be money
thrown away. There ought to be a careful survoy of the rivet from Its mouth up
to Westminster. Every side issue from
Westminster to the natural outlet Bhould
be stopped, on the best known practical
principles, and all tho volume of water
in the river should be conducted to one
outlet. It Is no use to begin to work
withont a thorough plan, and without a
thorough man to superintend the work.
Heretofore every squatter or landowner
along the banks of the river claimed that
every canoe pass must be left open for
his or their convenience; but such a consideration should be laid aside and only
one object should be kept in view—the
preservation of one outlet to the Fraser
for the purpose of ship navigation. If
this work is neglected or bungled, at this
present time, Homebody will suffer tho
penalty; the culprit will be found out.
