The custom of lifting tho hat had
its origin during the ago of chivalry,
whon it was customary for knights
jfijjyer. to appear in publio exoept in
full armor. It liecamc u custom,
howover, for a kniglit upon entering
un assembly of friends lo remove his
helmet, signifying, "I am wife in the
presenco of my friemls." The ngo
of chivalry passed nway .with the
fifteenth century, hut among the
many acts of oourtesty which can
he traced hack to its influence none
is more direct in its origin than that
of lifting the hat to acknowledge
the presence of a friend.

An exchange says: Secretary
Bayard, the premier of the Cleveland cabinet, delivered a public address at Baltimore the other evening,
and closed with the following remarks : "Let us resotvo that ours
shall bo a government of honest,
self-respecting men. Let us establish, and let it be our first duty to
establish, such a tone, such a standard of morals all over this land,
thnt when a man goes abroad into
other countries or stays at homo lm
may say, with just pride and gratitude, -Thank God, I am an American citizen.' (Great cheers and
'onthusiam.)" What beautiful
thoughts 1 None of the listeners
wero irreverent enough to murmur
■'Sackville."   	
President Cleveland's grandfather
was the first Presbyterian clergyman
to preach in Nova Scotia, He was
called to Halifax and served several
years there. An eastern journal,
commenting upon this fact, adds
sarcastically: "This is a point which
the Republicans have overlooked in
their campaign. The offence of
pointing Britishers in the way of
salvation should, with the other sins
of his forefathers, be rigidly visited
on Mr. Cleveland. While Rev. Mr.
Cleveland was preaching Presby-
terianism in Halifax, Rev, William
Black, of Nova Scotia, was introducing Methodism into Boston.
There seems, therefore, to have been
reciprocity, in religion at least, in
the old days,"
Westminster is not the only place
in Canada that needs police protection, A late uumber of Toronto
Truth expresses surprise "that tho
residents of Rosedale, Ont., aro so
apathetio as they seem to bo in the
absence of suitable polico protection
for themselves. If the city will not
do its duty it might be that though
they themselves would be led to
proyide an efficient watch in the
neighbourhood of those bridges.
Unless this is done the public may
expect to hear of moro sandbag outrages bofore tho winter is over.
Thoy aro gruesomely lonely places
these, choice spots for the hirl-in;-
robber who would hardly think
twice about pitching you ovor the
bridgo after ho hnd rifltul your pockets if ho thought that doing no
would servo his purpose,"
Says the New York Witneu:
Ministers and newspapers aro busy
discussing a novel called "Robert
Elsmere," tho design of which is to
shake people's faith in New Testament Christianity and incline them
towards Unitarianism. As Br.
Lyman Abbott says, the faith which
can be shaken by suoh means had
better be shaken, that its possessor
may be compelled to dig deeper and
found his spiritual house upon the
Itock of Ages. As children grow
up they are sure to come in contract
with doubt or skepticism in some
form. The duty of Christian par*
ents, therefore, is to see that they
have both a systemized knowledge
of Christian doctrine and an intimate
acquaintance with Jesus Christ as
their personal Saviour, Then they
will be in no danger Of sinking in
the quicksands of doubt, whatever
books may fall into their hands.
Young people cannot be saved by
keeping them ignorant of the snares

WANTED TO WEAR. SMALLER SHOES,
•SanDiego, Nov. 4,-An application
was made about two weeks ago to a
prominent physician ht.ro by a middle-
aged woman who strongly urged the doctor, for a consideration of $300, to amputate her two great toes. The doctor,
after examining the feet of the lady, assured her that she had nothing the matter with them, and furthermore told hor
that such an action on lm part would
render him liable to prosecution for
malpractice. The lady declared that by
the removal of the two members named
sho would be enabled to wear a No. 2
shoo, instead of the ugly No. 4 which
she then had on, and declared that her
toes were her own property and that she
could do what she liked with them. Failing to bring the doctor to her way of
thinking, she loft him, but how many
surgeons in town she consulted ia not
known. Certain it is, however, that
tbe amputation of the two toes was successfully performed, and the lady, wear,
ing the nest pair of No. 2's that could be

ranciuco on the steamer last night.
THE  WTJRTEMBDRG SCANDALS.
Munich, Nov. 4,—Popular excitement
at Stuttgart is all ablaze again over the
two Americans, Woodcock and Jackson,
who have obtained such a mysterious

his colleagues in tke cabinet, he sent a
mcBscugcr to the king giving him tbe
alternative of the immediate expulsion
of tbe Americans or tho reilgnation of
the entire administration. The kins
was at first frightened, then angry, and
finally sent a peremptory refusal to dismiss his American friends. The ministers thereupon at once resigned,

BETRAYED WORK1NGMKN.
New York, Nov. 8.—The Herald tomorrow will publish a story whioh will
astonish thousands of voters iu this city.
It is an exposure of a conspiracy to -ull

during the campaign when Henry George
ran for mayor, Tom Piatt, the ex-republican senator, collected and paid 035,000
to Barnes, McMacktn and Father Mc*
Glynn. The object of the donation was
to defeat tbe democratic candidate. In
the present campaign, the article goes on
to Bay, another bargain has been made
with the republicans by the same United
Labor leaders. The plot was consummated at tbe convention held on Sept,
21st, when Coogan was nominated, and
Dr, Swinburne, whose many friends
thoughthe deserved recognition from the
Anti-Poverty Society, was downed. It

McGlynn in desiring that mission being
to rebuke his ecclesiastical superiors.

Nkw York, Nov. 8.—The following
are extracts from a dispatch to the
Daily News by its Wnsntrgton correspondent, who hu been in New
York the past month where President
Cleveland had prepared tho first draft
of his message- He sent for the secretary of tho treasury to submit the
document for his criticism nnd remarked: "Fairchild, I havo written something hero that will beat me for reelection, but it's right." The fulfillment of that prophecy was read in this
morning's papers, nnd that the tariff
brought it about is conceded by tho
the managers of this campaign this
morning. Cleveland lost rotes in the

Ihe pranks that aro boing played
in Vancouver by four young boys—
the oldest, we are informed, not
over fourteen—and the reports in
the Vanoouver press of their committal to jail, their periodio scourging!, varied by Bible lessons, in that
model institution for matriculation
in crime, their escapes, recaptures,
and proudly avowed criminal intentions, disclose a state of things
in our modern civilization fitted to
made angels weep and fiends grin
with mirth. The revolting spectacle of extreme youth on familiar
terms with the hideous monsters of
vice and crime is not an uncommon
one in tbe larger cities of tho world,
but in the majority of such cases
there is some excuse for tho youthful manifestations of depravity,
owing to the crime, vice and poverty in which the unfortunate
urchins are suckled and reared.
Some other explanation, however,
is required in the case of the four
infants at Vancouver who have
been figuring in the public eye
lately as regular little "toughs," In
a new, rich and sparsely populated
country like British Columbia,the excuse of poverty, and the consequent
necessity of crime, cannot be urged
for a moment The parents of the
youthful felons are all honest folk,
we believe, and have been able to
provide their children with the
necessaries of life. One is almost
forced to the conclusion, though,
that the parents failed to include
in their estimate of the aforesaid
"necessaries" that training whioh
Solomon speaks of as "bringing up a
child in the way he should go,"
The rod, too, whioh the same great
authority mentions as an infallible
antidote for "foolishness" has also,
probably, been "spared" a great
deal more than used, and, as a consequence, tbe "lickings" whioh
might have been judiciously extended over the lust eight or ten
years, are now being piled on all at
once in the Vancouver jail yard,
under circumstances disgraceful and
humiliating to both parents and
children. How far the blood-aml-
thunder dime novel has abetted
parential neglect in the production
of these abnormal boy criminals,
we are not in a position to say; but
it is altogether probable that the lads
are laboring under the delusion that
they are perfect heroes, and that
this false and dangerous inspiration
has heen drawn from the perusal of
some oheap and nasty flash literature, flaunting the grandiloquent
and juicy title of "Three-fingered
Jake, the Bold Boy Brigand," or
"Red-handed Diok, the Rip Roarin'
Tenor o' the West." Tho havoo
that suoh literature plays with tlie
youthful mind and morals, and the
false ideas thus inculcated, which
yean of bitter experiencejtometimes
tlon. can eradicate, have frequently
been demonstrated in the annals of
boyish crime and escapades. Con-
amntious book dealers will not vend
•uoh trash, and wide-awake parents
wilt see that their boys do not purchase and road it; but it is, nevertheless, the duty of all governing
bodies to protect the people, by legal
enactment, against the incursions of
trashy and poisonous literature. We
hope to see stringent measures adopted and enforced in this regard by
the proper authorities everywhere,
When the mischief haa been dono,
however, and infant criminals are
thrown upon society, from whatever
cause, in the namo of decency and
Ohrittianity, let us have a proper
reformatory established where there
may be tome hope of reclaiming
misguided urchins, instead of linking
them deeper in the slough by accustoming them to the punishment and
ataooiation of common criminals.
Suoh treatment ai the unfortunate
young scapegraces at Vancouver are
being subjected to may be the best
that can be done for them under the
circumstances, but it il to be feared
that the principal effect will be to
glorify a life of crime in their
eye*, and to harden and confirm the
youthful reprobates in their preient
foolish and wioked course.
A great deal hu been laid and
written about tho Manitoba railway
■addle, and a Manitoba paper has
-certainly a right to be heard on the
subject, and might be aupposed to
•peak more clearly and authoritatively than thote farther from the
actual scene of the rather protracted
uopleaiantnen. Here ia the way
the Winnipeg Sun puts th. matter,

matter, ityally at issue.   It is the
fortune, ot misfortune of this coun.
try, to b. thoroughly advertiied by
•jrjtatiMu thai arise every now and
thm, Md whioh »ro magnified by
the representatives of the outside
press to be incipient rebellions; if,
indeed, hostilities are not reported
to be actually in progress. Naturally, misconceptions have arisen,
more particularly on the part of tho
American press, which sooms to
labor under tho delusion that tho
present crossing difficulty iu this
province is of a character similar to
tho disputes that aro frequently
arising between railroad corporations
on the other side of the line. This is
not the case, and for tho benefit of
those who are not in possession of
the facts we will venture to make a
brief recapitulation. We will not
refer to the agitation that took placo
for tho removal of tho railroad monopoly, further than to say that the
Oanadian Pacifio Railway oompany
received certain financial consideration for the roni and supposed
rights tlioroin that it possessed.'
.Not a thought was harbored at tho
time, in the mind of any man, unless it be in that of Mr. Van Horne,
that tho settlement was not being
mado in good faith. Thus believing,
tho Manitoba government entered
into certain arrangements with respect to railroad construction in
this province. These were being
proceoded with, when an obstacle
suddenly appeared in tlio way. Mr.
Vun Homo opposed the crossing by
the provincial roads of any branch
or main line of his oompany on the
ground that, by Dominion legislation, some of it recently made, all
such roads required the authorization of the federal parliament.
Hence, tbe railroad committee of
the privy council of Ottawa, which
must approve or disapprove of contemplated crossings,postponed its decision until the constitutional point
that had been raised had been decided by tho supreme court of tho
Dominion. The company also applied to the provincial courts for
interim injunctions, which wore
granted, and at the samo time took
steps to prevent the crossing of
their tracks save by the use of superior foroe. Thus matters stand
at tho present timo. One point wo
desire to make cloar is that while
Mr. Van Horne may be legally
right, he is morally wrong. He accepted the prico set by himself for a
certain article, and thon resorted to
legal subterfuges in order to gain
further advantages by delaying delivery. For this conduct no possible
justification can be offered. His
company will not be damaged, in
the ordinary sense of the term, by
tho crossings in question, because
the plans were to have been submitted for the approval of tho railroad committee of the privy counoil, the body specially charged with
this matter. His only object, therefore, is to delay or prevent the
crossings, and for this, as wo have
already pointed out, there can be
no justification offered that is not
purely delusive. Legally, wo say,
Mr. Van Horne may bo right;
morally, ho is entirely wrong. Those
circumstances will explain to the
uninitiated why a question of rail-
road crossings in Manitoba has excited so muoh interest, and has led
to threats, if not aotual attempts,
at tho employment of force. We
do not say that the employment of
foroe is justifiable, but we do say
that as matters now stand, unless
the Dominion legislation already
referred to is declared, without do-
lay, to be ultra vires, save by the
use of force, the further proseoution
of Manitoba's provincial railroads
must bo abandoned for this season;
and probably for next season as
well, unless the province makes
surrender of the rights it has heretofore contended for, and makes
application at the next session of
the Dominion parliament for
incorporation for its provincial roads.
These rights, it may readily be seen,
cannot be surrendered, save in grave
extremity, as once conceded Manitoba's railroad legislation lies entirely vested in the Dominion parliament—which, for all practical
purposes, is the same thing as tho
Oanadian Pacific railroad compuny.
There are, therefore, several respects
in which the Manitoba difficulty
varies from the ordinary disputes
with respect to railroad crossings,
and while the use of, or threats to
use, force cannot be justified, because of the dangerous precedent
set thereby, it will be seen that
there has been considerable provocation thereto,"

Provision Made for Ills Cuest by a Hospitable Rnjalt i ln Sumatra-Oliserva-
tii-us of tlio Maori Cuisine.
A friend of tho writer, who for move.
Mum forty years has been in tlio employment of tho Dutch Government, bears
personal witness to tho prevalence of can-
nilialieiu in Sumatra ap to recent times.
lie wa:j oueo making scientific investigations ia tbo interior of that Island, and
was being entertained ln the most hospitable manner by tho native Rajah, or
chief of the place he was then in. A feast
had been mado to which he was bidden,
and to which he went, taklnrf his own native servant with htm.
The banquet had proceeded for some
time without Interruption, went at last,
as crown of tho feast, a beautiful brown
roast joint was brought from the baok of
the house to the open airy plaoe where the
repast was being held.
This was out np withont remark and
handed round, and the Dutch gentleman
was on the point of eating his portion,
having raised part of It to his lips, when
his servant rushed forward and stopped
hlm, saying! , ;-
"Master,,master, do aot eat: it Is a
boy." «**. "
The ohlef, on being questioned, admitted, with no small pride at the extent
of his hospitality, that hearing that the
white man would feast with him, he had
ordered a young boy to be killed and
cooked In his honor, as the greatest delicacy obtainable, and that the joint before them was tbo best part, tbe thigh.
Early travelers in New Zealand always
express astonishment, when they discover
the cannibal propensities of tho inhabitants, that so gentle and pleasant mannered a people could become on occasion
snch ferocious savages.
Earle, who wrote a Very readable, Intel*
ligent, and but littlo known account of
the Maoris very early in tbe present century, speaks of the gentle manners and
kindly ways of a New Zealand chief,
whom afterward he discovered to bo an
Inveterate cannibal.
Ho relates that ho visited the place
where was cooking the body of a young
slave girl that his friend had killed for
the purpose, The head was severed from
tho body; the four quarters, with tho
principal bones removed, were compressed and packed Into a small oven In
the ground, and covered with earth.
It was a case of unjustifiable cannibalism. No revenge was gratified by the
deed, and no excuse conld be made that
the body was eaten to perfect their triumph.
Earle says that he learned that tho
flesh takes many hours to cook, that it is
very tough If not thoroughly cooked, but
that It pulls in pieces, like a pieco of blotting paper, tt well done. He continues
that the victim was a handsome, pleasant looking girl of 10, and one he used
frequently to see about the Pali.—Gentleman's Magazine.   ----
PRIME   MOVERS.
LEARNED MEN'S VIEWSON CORSETS,
, These Aro Not Ho Bad After AU When
Not Laoed Too Tight,
In the Biographical Section of the recent meeting of the British Association,
. the vexed question of stays and tight lacing was discussed in a separate department The attendance of tho fair sex was
fi especially large. The general expectation
m which tbey apparently entertained that
1 the paper wonld condemn the wearing of
; stays wait however, agreeably disappointed.
Mr. C, fi. Roy, Professor of Pathology
> at Cambridge, and Mr, J. G. Adams, Unt-
, verslty Administrator of Pathology, who
( bad announced a joint paper "On tho
Physiological Bearing of Waist Belts and
Stays," blessed instead of banning these
articles.
,   They had lately been making some
', pathological experiments, and'had found
tbat a good deal of the blood stored uselessly in the abdominal veins Is, by slight
pressure, placed advantageously at tho
disposal of tho muscles, brain and skin.
Thla explains how men, as well as women, instinctively employ somo method
ot abdominal compression .wearing waistbands or belts, or tho more elaborate
corsets, at periods of increased activity.
No doubt fashion bas sometimes led to
the distortion of tho female figure by
means of stays, but if not laced too tight
tho modern corset, by clasping tho waist
and supporting tho bosom nnd hack, constitutes a convenient combination of tho
different forms of girdle which have been
found useful by the women of all civilized nations from the remotest times.
Of course, during sleep they are put off,
, but during hours of exertion, social or
otherwise,reasonable tight lacing Is fitted
to Increase mental and physical activity.
Tbey, however, cautioned young ladles
. against carrying this to au Injudicious
extreme.
By the way, It was suggested to train-
ersofhorses that il they girthed on tho
racing saddle behind the ribs Instead of
over them they would thereby gain for
the horse the same advantage as was
experienced by the long-distance runner
from his broad tight leather-belt.
Several physicians Immediately attacked the paper.
1 Dr. Wilherforce Smith considered It a
most dangerous one to be read to an assembly like that. He declared the evils
of tight lacing to be manifold and terrible,
and that It Is perfectly refreshing to And
a glrL the muscles of whose back have
not been withered by wearing stays.
Miss Becker took tho other side and
advocated rigid and not elastic stays, at
the same time giving her approval of
modern fashions as better than some
dress reforms.

Their    Importance    PS   Substitutes  for
Unintelligent Manual labor..
The introduction of prime movers ns a
lhero-di -Unite for unintelligent manual
liil-oi-i.s in itself agruutai-l tocivilizaiiuii
hnd lo tlio riiHugrif tiumanity by rendering iii very -lillicult. if not impossible, for
aliiinnn beiug toobtnin a livelihood hy
uniiiiellif-i'iiliwork—tho work of the horse
in tlie mill or tho turnspit.
But thero are prime movers and prime
movers—those of small dimensions and
employed for purposes wbero animal
power or human power might be substituted, and those which attain ends tbat
by no conceivable possibility could be
attained at all by the exertion of muscular power.
Compare a galley, a vessel propelled by
oars, witli the modern Atlantic liner; and
first let us assume tbat prime movers are
non-existent nnd that this vessel Is to be
propelled galley fashion.
Take her length as some 000ft., nnd
assume that place be found for as many
as 400 oars on each side, each oar worked
by three men, or 2,400 men; and allow
that six mon under these conditions could
develop work equal to one horse-power;
wo should have 400 horse-power. Double
the number of men and we should have
800 horse-power, with 4,800 men at work
and at least the samo number In reserve,
If the journey is to be carried on continuously.
Contrast tho puny result thus obtained .
with the 10,500 horse-power given forth
by a lurge prime mover of tho present
day, such a power requiring, on theabovo
mode of calculation, 117,000 mdnt work
and 117,000 lu reserve; and theso to be
carried f n a vessel 600ft, in length. Even
If it woro possible to carry this number of
men In such a vessel, by no conceivable
means could their power be utilized so as
to Impart to it a speed of 20 knots.
Thia illustrates how a prime mover may
not only bo a, more substitute for muscular work, but may afford the means of
attaining an end tbat could not by any
possibility bo attained by muscular exertion, no matter what money was
expended or what galley-slave suffering
whs inflicted.
Take again the case of a railway locomotive. From 400 to 000 borne-power
developed in an implement, which, even
including its tender, does uot occupy an
area of more than 50 square yards, aud
drawn us at 00 miles an hour. Here again
the prime mover succeeds In doing that
which no expenditure of money or of life
could enable us to obtain from muscular
effort.
To what.and to whoin.nre these meritorious prime movers due? I answer to tbo
application cf science—and to the labors
of tho civil engineer, using that term ln
Its full and proper sense as embracing all
engineering other than military,—Sir
Frederick Brnmwell.

Tho Tapuya Indians in South America

Raiu is, iu some parts of our own country, expected to follow unusually load

Flies aro sometimes regarded as furnishing prognostications In the weather,

they were found In abundance.
Although a sacred insect among the
Egyptians, the beetle receives but little
notice In folk lore. It la unlucky In England to kill one.
In Germany It ts said to indicate good

when ho rises towards you,
Tho grasshopper is a sufficiently unwelcome visitant of himself ln this country,
but In Germany his presence Is furtb****

expected this lino anthracite will soon

Tlie Wrecked sloop.
Some days ago news was received
that a sloop had been picked up by tho
schooner Eliza. A report wus circulated that tho vessel sailed from Ross
Bay with a cargo of opium and Chinese.
A mystery hung ovor the affair until
last night when a report was circulated
that D. J. McLean was one of tho men
on board the sloop. This man has
been engaged in smuggling opium for
some time and was beforo the magistrate a few weeks ago on a charge of
destroying a promissory note for a large
sum of money. He was engaged for
some years in the grocery business at
the comer of Pembroke aud Douglas
streets. On Monday last McLean informed a young mail that ho intended
to leave for Seattle and would return
on Thursday. Nothing has boen seen
or heard of him since that time. There
is a probability that McLean was one
of tho men lost on the sloop.—Times.

John Donahue and a friend purchased a bottle of whiskey on Saturday night and adjourned to the pavil-
lion on tho Crescent, there to demolish
it amidst the regal splendors of that
historic pile. Mirth, music and good
fellowship lasted as long as the whisky,
but with the last drop Mr. Donahue's friend departed leaving him to
the cheerless companionship of an
empty bottle. The night was cold and
Mr. Donahue endeavored to keep tho
warm blood circulating in his veins by
singing a song and dancing a breakdown. This exercise served the purpose at first, but the exertion was too
great to maintain steadily till morning,
so he wandered out in search of quarters more comfortable. Mr. Adam
Jackson's house seemed to present an
inviting retreat, and there ho proceeded. Donahue first lifted the gate from
its hinges and then entered the premises. Air. Jackson hearing an unusual
noise jumped from his bed and alter a
hasty toilet went out to investigate.
Donahue was seen prowling around, so
without waiting to question Mr. Jackson mado a prisoner of hiin and lugged
him to the lockup. This morning
Police Magistrate Atkinson sentenced
Donahue to G months in gaol with
hard labor whioh it is hoped will cure
him of the vagabond life ho has lately
been living.
A Noted Scoundrel Captured.
The news comes from Vancouver today that Patrick Kane has been arrested there on the oblige of highway
robbery. It appears that Kane held
up a man on Westminster Avenue on
Saturday night and relieved him of all
his pockets contained. Unfortunately
for the highwayman his victim was a
cool headed chap who described tho
robber so well to the police that they
immediately arrested Kane who, was
identified and sworn to by the informant. The case came befoie the police
magistrate this morning who remanded
him till tomorrow. Itls almost certain
Kane will be committed for trial at the
coming assize. Kane is a scoundrel of
the first water, a thief, an informer,
a drunkard and a jailbird, and were it
not for his lack of norvo he would have
been a murderer long ago. All tho
evil man can be possessed of seems to
be concentrated in Kane, and this
without a redeeming feature to attract
the sympathy of the most charitable.
He has been jailed time and again for
drunkeness, stealing and assault, and
at the last assizes he turned Queens
Evidence in order to save a
long term of imprisonment.
It is almost a certainty that he wss
concerned in the attempt to murder
and rob Mr. Harvey last weok and
was held on suspicion, bub as Mr.
Harvey was unable to recognize his
assailants Kane was discharged. However, Kane made up his mind Westminster was too hot for him and ho
left immediately on being released for
Vancouver. His stay in Vancouvor
might have proved eventful but for his
arrest on Saturday night.
Poet Ball.
The football match at Victoria on
Saturday, between tho Westminstor
and Victoria teams, resulted hi a decisive victory for the Royal City's representatives, Tliu weather wns most
disagreeable, the gross wet nud slippery, and, on the whole, thu condition
of things was against tho chances fur a
brilliant game. When thu bull was
kicked into play Victoria went at it
with a rush, ana for a time Westminster played on the defensive. But
this state of affairs did not lust long.
Westminster settled quietly down to
play and in a few minutes the ball
was worked down towards Vicoria's
goal. Mowat secured the first touchdown, and Lister tried but failed to
send tho leather across the bar. As
soon as the second half eommenced it
became evident that Wostmister had
tho game woll in hand and was certain
of victory, although Victoria worked
so bravely that overy point earned was
a victory in itself. Rev. P. \v uods got
the next touchdown and kicked but
failed to mako a gaol. Turner was
tho next luoky man but Lister's try
was as unsuccessful as the two previous.
This was tho last point mado during
the game and when time was up the
score stood Westminster three tries,
Victoria nil. Tho game throughout
was most exciting. Speaking of the
match the Times says:—"Tha match
between Viotoria and Now Westminster is going on at the hill to-day. The
visitors are a splendid lot of young
follows and without doubt can go so
near carrying off tho championship
that there is no fun iu it, They aro
weakened to-day by the loss of their
heat man."
Tho team returned homo last night
and woro warmly greeted by a large
number of friends. The members all
speak very highly of tho friendly treatment they met with in Victoria,
It is to bo hoped a return match
with Victoria, played in Westminster,
will be arranged shortly.
