The directors of  tho  provincial
agricultural socioty, it is expected,
will meet in this  oity   next  week,
and Hx the date for the holding of
tho annual exhibition nett fall, and
transact other  business. pertaining
to the approaching fair.    We cannot
say just what date will  bo  agreed
upon, but it is safe to sny that not
more than six  months  can  elapse
before tha exhibition will bo upon
us, which is a short enough period
in which to complete arrangements
for a successful provincial show this
fall   Suoh a show all must desire
to see, and,   recognizing  the  fact
that now   there  is  not   a    nio
ment to lose, we would urge upon
all   who   havo  any  idea of contributing to the grand success of the
exhibition to declare their intentions
immediately, if not sooner,   the
necessity for this haste   must  bo
obvious when once it is pointed out.
Those who are responsible for nil the
varied preparations required for the
success of  the  exhibition  cannot
longer, without  prejudice  to  this
much desired success, delay taking
energetio measures in its   behalf.
The   scale    upon    which    preparations    can   bo   made,   depends
altogether,  it is   unnecessary   to
state, upon the extent of available
funds for the purpose of the exhibition. The necessity will thus appear
of having the largest possible amount
guaranteed in the shortest possible
time.    The  Exposition  fund
these  columns offers an excellent
opportunity for  those  desiring to
assist this most worthy and reproductive object to pledge themselves
for any amount within their means
and inclination, and thus establish a
fund upon which tho directors, the
park committee, etc., can count in
making preparations for the show.
Quite a number of our citizens and
several   district    subscribers   have
done nobly so far.   We would invite
others to emulate their example, and
.to remember that in this instance,
pre-eminently, "he who gives promptly gives twice."   The success of the
show can be furthered very materially by an increase in the membership of   the provincial agricultural
association.   The cost to become an
annual member is only $3.   Let as
many aa possible, the farmers especially, send in their names, with tho
membership fee, to the secretary or
treasurer of the association—T. .11,
Pearson, or J. S. Olute, of this city,
Westminster,    city   a^r^strict,,
should heartily co-operate in making
tho coining exposition a grand success.
The letter received in London tho
other day, from Stanley, written in
September of last year in the depths
of Africa, (a summary of which- will
be found elsewhere in this paper),
has aUthe thrilling interest of the
wildest romance, with the merit of
being the mere outline of a true recital of adventure and hardship in
the African wilds, the full particulars of which, when eventually pub*
lUhed, as all will hope may be soon,
must   throw   romance forever into
the shade.   Stanley has written not
a Httle about tho "Dark Continent,"
bat the coining book, judging of the
advance  sheets thrown out in this
letter, will prove more intensely interesting than any previous account
of the great explorer's mid-African
adventures.    Rider  Haggard even
must pale before the "truth stranger
thnu fiction" of Stanley's experience
inspired pen.   The two things that
preient themselves most forcibly to
the reader's imagination on perusing
Stanley^ letter, us given on another
page, are the vastness and the wild-
nesi of the African continent, and
the indomitable courage of   the intrepid   explorer himself.   The one
man power, the force of individuality,
is strikingly illustrated in tho way
he preserved the integrity of his
little   force, of  untrained   natives
principally,   amid   hardships, toils,
fears,   dangers,   and   deaths,  and
through the gloomy foi est march of
160 days days, at the end of which
the expedition, that left Yambunga
369 strong, was reduced to 173 from
the inroads of starvation, desertion,
and  hostile  tribes.   The ultimate
arrival at Like Nyanza, the meeting
with Emin, and the subsequent return down the Congo to Bunalya, to
, find   the  rear column demoralized
and dispersed, Major Bartellot murdered,  Stanley himself accounted
dead, ahd hia personal kit of medicines, etc., aent still further down
the Congo, are all depply interesting
incidents  of a thrilling story, the
sequelof ,whioh hu> not yet transpired.   The despatches of  the last
few dan report both Stanley and
Emin Bey to be marching from the
interior to the ooast, with millions
woith o* ivory( but 'there are circum

Following  immediately   ou   the
passage of the bill to incorporate the
Oanadian Western   Railway Company, a bill has been introduced in
the local house, and passed its third
reading  yesterday, to grant a land
subsidy to  the projected railway.
The  bill  provides   that, upon the
company filing with the chief commissioner of lands and works a map
or plan, to the satisfaction of the
lieutenant-governor in counoil, show,
ing tho courso and direction of the
proposed railway, aud the lands intended to be traversed, there shall
be reserved  from  pre-emption and
sale a tract of land extending thirty-
two miles on each side of the line of
railway, to be afterwards conveyed
to  the company, pursuant to the
net; provided, that the   work  of
actual construction of the proposed
railway  shall    begin  within   six
months from the time of the filing
of the said map or plan, nnd shall be
continuously prosecuted to completion    with    reasonable   diligence;
otherwise  the  said reservation of
publio   lands   to be void and of no
effect.   It is further provided that
the government shall, before conveying aU or any portion of the lands
intended to be granted to the compnny, take, satisfactory security from
the company for the proper completion of the road, and that the grants
of land to be made shall in no wise
exceed   twenty thousand  acres for
each and every mile of railway con
structed • in other words, ah aggregate respectable land subsidy of between  10,000,000 and 12,000,000
acres.   It is also provided that the
lands granted under the act must be
taken by tho company in alternate
blocks ou each side of the line of
railway, each block of land to have
a frontage on the railway of twenty
miles, and so that the land grunted
to the company on one side of the
line of railway shall be opposite to a
like twenty miles of land retained
by the   province   on  the opposite
side.   The expenses of the survey
are to bomo by the company.   The
grant  is  not to include any lauds
held by grant, lease, agreement for
sale,   or  other   alienation   by the
crown, nor  shall it include Indian
reserves or settlements, nor military
or naval reserves, that may happen
to lio iu the line of the railway, but
in lieu of nny land thus excepted
an equal nmount shall be made good
to the company from public lands
contiguous.    It is provided thnt the
rights of free miners to search for
and mine the precious metals shall
not  be prejudiced by tho grant of
land   to  the company,   Tho lands
acquired by the company shall not
be subject to taxation, provincial or
municipal, until the expiration of
ten years from thu completion of the
railway.   The actual work of construction, it is provided, shall commence within two years of the lst-L1
of November next, the road to be
completed within   ten years thereafter.   The legislature has certainly
not erred on the side of niggardliness   in its  encouragement of this
railway enterprise.   The Canadian
Western  is  a   large undertaking,
however, and if energetically pushed
and carried   to   completion, a vast
tract of the province will be opened
up and made valuable that without
a railway must remain a comparative wildnerness for some time to
come,

SCOTLAND'S CfiOWN.
It Was Once  Worn by a Lady
Now Living in Pittsburgh.
Bomantle Story of Mrs. Duncan, Daughter j
or tho "Keeper of tho Crown"—Born
In tho Castle Where Queen Mary
Wm Once n Prisoner.
A crown and et scepter lie in a small
room up in tho Castle of Edinburgh, but no1
brow wears the diadem and no hand lifts
tho rod. Thoro is a palace at tho foot of I
tho Ganongato, but it has become only a
hotel for her Majesty en route for Balmoral.
There has, however, boen from timo immemorial a "Keeper of the Crown." A
Pittsburgh homo, says the Commercial Gazette of that city, furnishes a bit of Scotch
hlatory in a way connected with one of
theso" keepers,'' There has been living in
this vicinity for the past half century a dear I
old Scotch lady, Mrs. Duncan, of Wilkins-
burff, mothor of A. C, Duncan, a well-
known business man, wbo waa the daughter of Colonel Dingwalt, keeper of thej
crown.
Colonel Dingwalt was a soldier of distinction, and after the battle of Waterloo,;
whoro ho won promotion, ho was appointed
" Keepor of the Crown of Scotland." Prom
tho time of that appointment ho took up his
residence in tho grand old Castle of Edinburgh, and horo just seventy-two years ago1
was born tho littlo daughter who still pre-!
serves the intense love of nativo land-so
characteristic of overy true child of Scotland.
She was bora ln tho very wing of tho old I
castlo whero moro than a century and a
half beforo tho Ill-fated James VI. of 8cot-|
land and James I, of England saw tho light,

STRANGE AND PITIFUL
The Remarkable History and Wanderings
of a Union Veteran.
Tho atrango caso of Hugh Thompson Im3
just pussed through tho Pension Oflice,
saya tho Chicago Tribune. It is a remarkable story. Thompson left homo a boy of
eighteen to march with the Union forces.
At tho battle of Chickamauga ho was
wounded in the head, and from that timo
until 1872 his lifo Is a blank to him and his
friends. Tho army record shows'thatho
was at tho battlo of Chickamauga. After
that he was reported missing, and until a
few months ago his family mourned him as
dead, Under this impression his father applied for a pension in 18T5, but was refused
becauso ho was not dependent at the time
of tho supposed death of his son. From tho
battlo of Chickamauga until he was restored
to his friends Hugh Thompson did not know
his own name. Until 1873 he had no con
soiousnosB whatever. Where he spent tbe
interval he does not know. In that year ho
was walking near the little town of Cleveland, in Illinois, when tho memories of tho
war returned. Ho did not know hb name.
Ho was clad in old Boldier clotheB, witii o
bluo soldier overcoat. He dimly recalled a
groat battlo in which his comrades wero
hard pressed, and that was all. To his mind
tho battlo was just over. From that timo
until last year ho was a ceaseless wanderer. Ho had intelligence enough to
cave for horses and do odd chores, but
his namo, his family and his regiment wero
all a blank, Iu his wanderings ho
made his homo in Michigan, Illinois, Wisconsin, Jowa and Kansas, picking up three
wives, all of whom are dead* Hia misfortunes appealed to the old soldiers. Thoy
cared for him, and made many efforts to
learn hts history. Among thom he was
known as "Shorty," "Old Rolliiblc" ami
tho " Nameless Soldier." In a littlo Testament to which ho clung through all his mla*
fortunes was written tho name of Thompson, and this was supposed to bo his ua-.no.
Some timo last year he wus at a aoldiors'
meeting in Michigan. His story was printed
in a local papor. This found Its way to Van
Wort County, 0., whoro tho older Thompson lived. Hopo was revived In tho old
man, who had mourned hia eon as dead for
twenty-five years. Ho began a search for
his son, and finally found bim in Kansas
and brought him back to the scones of his
childhood. Many things which had baffled
memory were recalled. He had boon engaged in youth to a girl whom he rcmem-
borod as " heavy sot," and although a quarter of a century hod passed there was somo
peculiarity about her that lod him to recognize her at sight. One day he wus token to
an uncle's where many hours of his youth
wero passed. As ho came to the barn a
flash of intelligence camo to his face and ho
said that was the barn ho had so often tried
[.| to recall. His own poople only identified
him through the Testament which hiB cousin
had given him, and which ho had preserved

Unquestionably tho best minstrel
performance given in Bt. Louis for
years, was presented at the Standard
Theatre last night, upon which occaaion Goodyear, Conk & Dilhon's refined'mmstrals gave their initial performance. The magnificent parade ut
noon attracted marked attention from
all beholders, for 26 finer, manlier
men never marched tu music. And
the immense audience who witnessed
the performance last night testified by
almost continual applause that tho
grund parade indicated the glorious
entertainment that followed. Not u
chestnut was sprung. Tho singing of
the f-oxlotce was exquisite, Tho specialities wero rendered in a refined and
nitistic manner, nnd take it in its on*
tureiyv it wsb conceded by scores in
our immediate vicinity that it was the
cleanest, most enjoyable minstrel per*
formance ever witnessed in our . city.

Another Pioneer Clone.
Another of our earliest pioneers, in
tho person of Capt. Alexander McLean, of Pitt Meadows, has crossed
tho "big divide" and passed into the
unknown world beyond. His death
occurred last night at 0 o'clock, after
an illness of twu weeks; and ho passed
away peacefully and quietly, und with
evory hope of tho blessed resaurectiun.
Oapt. McLean hnd a stirring life up
tilt hia 50th year, and if ull he has semi
and taken part in were written up
it would make a large volume which
would surpass some of the most won-
detful works of fiction in variety and
sensation.
He wub born in Glasgow, Scotland,
in tho year 1809, und when only a lud
took to the sea and mado a voyage tu
tho South Sea Islands. The ship on
which he Bailed waa boarded By a
party of cannibals, who murdered and
uto the entire crew with the exception
of Mr. McLean and another buy, who
were kept prisoners. The buy died
but McLean lived and was n slave to
thu natives for seven years, when he
managed to escape, During this time
he passed through some stirring incidents, and often gut a better insight
to sarage life than was altogether
pleasant. He finally settled dmvn in
New Zealand long before that country
wu under Britiih rule. The Maoris
wero not unfriendly and ho spent 14
years among them, though not with
great profit.
During the latter part of his stay in
New Zealand he built a small schooner,
and in 1848 he set suil for Sun Francisco with a large number of passengers, who were anxious to reach the
California «old fields. Ho had no compass on board and navigated entirely
by the stars, which was not a sure way
of striking within a thousand miles uf
the point of destination, especially na
he was sailing in unknown waters. The
voyage was long and most eventful.
Food and water were scarce and tho
paisengers were almost continually in
a stato of mutiny, and in foot would
have taken possession of tho vu-boI
and made the captain "walk tbe plank"
but for their inability to navigate The
vessel touched at the Sandwich Islands
and Oapt. McLean managed by a skilful ruse to leave a large number <f hia
most mutinous passengers behind. Ho
invited them to dine on ifadre. und
when the feast was at its height slipped
quietly away, reached the vessel uud
making sail left the mutineers to shift
for themselves.
When flan Francisco was reached
(1840) the present glories of that city
were unthought of. There wai scarcely
a building erected at that time, but a
sea of white tents covering hundreds
of aores gave one the impression of a
huge military camp, And it was military in a way, for no martial law wai
ever more strictly enforced than the
common codo adopted by the minora,
While in San Francisco Capt. McLean
married, nnd got for his wife the second white woman who reached the
Pacific coast, Aftor a fow fears' residence in the golden state ho sailed up
tho const nnd finally reached Belling-
hum Buy, where he settled on tbe Bite
uf the present city of Whatcom. To
Capt. McLean belongs tbe honor uf
opening und developing the tout coal
mine un the Pacific coast. This mine
ho discovered close to tho laud on
which ho settled at Whatcom.
After a four years' slay on Bellingham Bay he loaded all hia effects on
his good schooner and Balled with hiB
family for the Fraser River, up whioh
ho continued till Pitt River was reached, und there ho cast anchor fur the last
time. This was in 1850. Capt. McLean did nut catch the gold fever, but
remained on Ms farm and enjoyed lifo
quietly in Iub own nny. Ho was one
of the first half dozen persons to take
up land un the Fruser River. About
u year ngo he caino to Westminster for
a few weeks aud wns couverted by the
Salvation Army, of which he remained
a staunch and enthusiastic member till
the day of his death. HiB health was
ulways robust, nud until two weeks
ago he wai never under a doctor'i euro,
He wai elected an honorary member of
the 49-ers Pioneer Society a few yean
oro. He died at tbo residence of Mr,
Georgo Munday, nt Sapperton, from
whero the funeral will tako pluce tomorrow afternoon ut 3 o'olock.
STANLEY'S  LETTER.
[From First Page.]
wo sighted tho Nynnza, with Kuvalli,
the objective point of tho expedition,
six miles off. I had told the men to
prepare to see Nyams. They murmured nnd doubted. Whon they saw
Nyanza beluw thom many camo tu kiss
my hands. We were now 5200 feet
abovo the sea level, 2900 feet abuve
the Albert Nyanza. After a short
halt to enjoy the proapect, we commenced tbe rugged and stony descent.
Before tho rear guar had descended a
hundred feot the natives from the plateau poured after thom, keeping, the
rear guard busy until within a few
hundred feet of the Nyanza plains.
SO NEWS OF EMIN.
Wo afterwards approached the village of Kakango, situated at the south-
weBt cornor of Albert lake. Three
hours were spent by us in attempting
to mako friends, but tboy signally
failed. They .would not exchange the
blood of, brotherhood, because they
hud never heard of good peoplo earning from tbe west side nf tho hike.
They would not accept any present
from us, becauso thoy did nut know
who wo wero, but thoy would givo ub
water to drink und show us tho way
up to Nyamsassie. From these singular poople we learned that they had
heard thoro wus a white man nt Unyo*
ro, but they had never henrd of nny
whito mnn being on tbu west Bide, nor
hnd they seen nny steamers un the
lake.    We were shown the path.
NO BOAT TO UIIOSS THB LAKE.
We camped about hulf a mile from
tho lake and then began to consider
our position. My couriers from Zanzibar had evidently not arrived, or
Emin Pasha with his two steamers
would havo pnld the southern end of
tho hike a visit, to prepare the. natives
fur uur coming; My* -boat- was;-«ftt Ktl*-
inga-Longu, 100 miles distant, and
there were no canoes obtainuble; thero,
waa no plan feasible except to retrent
to Ibwiri, build n fort, send a party
buck to Kilingn-Lnngn for a bout, store
up every load in the fort not convey-
able, leavo u garrison to hold it, mnrch
buck to Albert lake nnd send tho boat
in senvch of Emin Pasba. This was
the plan which, after a leugthly discussion with the officers, I resolved
upon. On January 7th we were in
Ibwiri once again, After a few days
rest, Lieut. Staira(/>»ithl00''mei»/. km*
aent to Eilinga-Longa to briiii* the
boat and goods. On tbe return of
Stain with the boat and goods, he was
sent to Uyarrava. He wns to bring
up the convalescents. Soon after his
departure I wns attacked by gastritis
and nn abscess on the arm. After a
month's careful nursing I recovered
and set out again for Albert Nyanza
on April 2nd, accompanied by Joseph-
son and Parke. A garrison was left at
Fort Bodo.
THE NYANZA NATIVES FEIENDLV.
-'On April 26th we arrived nt Moss-
anibini's country again. Thin time,
after some hesitation, Mozambini decided tu make the blood of brotherhood with me. His example waa followed by all the other chiefs as far as
the Nyanza Every difficulty seemed
now to bo it-moved. Food was supplied gratis.
EMIN PAKHA IIEAHD FROM.
"When one day'B march from Ny-
nuza, natives came from Kuvali and
snid a white mnn nume'd Malojja had
given their chief a packet to give to
me, hia son. Tltey remained with us
that night, telling ua wonderful stories
ubout big ships, etc,, which left no
doubt upon our mind thnt the white
man was Emin Pasha. The next day's
mnrch brought ub tu Chief Kuvali. He
handed ine a unto from Emin Pasha to
the effect thut thero bad been a native
rumor that a white man hnd been seen
at the south end of tho lake. Ho had
gono iu a steamer to make enquiries,
but had beon unable to obtain reliable
information, Ho begged me to remain
wheru I wns until ht. could communicate wilh me. Tbu next day, April 23,
Josephsun was dispatched with a strong
force to tako tho boat to the Nyiinaa.
On April 20th wo once again reached
tho bivouac ground occupied by us
December 10, and at 5 p. tn., of that
day I saw the itoamer Khedive about 7
miles away.
Tm HEETIMI WITH EMIN.
"Soon after 7 o'olock Emin Pnsha,
Signor Cnsati und Mr. Josophnon arrived nt onr camp, whero they were
heartily wulcomod by all of ua. Wo
wero together until May 25, when I
left him, leaving Josephson, three
Soudanese and two Zaiis-ibari in his
care. Seven days later I was nt Fort
Bodo. At tho fort were Oapt. Nelson,
and Lieutenant Stairs, The latter bad
returned from .Nynrrava, 22 days after
I had set out for the lake, bringing
with him, alas 1 only 10 men out of 50.
All the rest were dead.
BACK TO THE CONGO,
"On June lfl I left Fort Bodo with
ill Zsnribiri's aod 101 of Emin *a people, leaving all my officers at the fort.
On June 24 we reached Killinsa-Looga,
and.on July 10 Nyarrava. The latter
station was deserted. Passing on down
the river »fait ns we could go, daily
expecting to meet the couriers I had
sent to Mnj. Barttelot, we indulged
ourael vos in pleasing anticipation! as
we neurod ihe gaol. Auguat 10. we
overtook Uynrrova with a flotilla of 57
canoes and our couriers, reduced to 17,
who related an awful story of hairbreadth escapes aid tragic scones.
Three bad been slain, two were still
feeble from wounds, and nil except five.
bore on their bodies scan of arrow
wounds.
A week later Stanley met the rear
column of the expedition at Bunalva
and found Mr. Bonnoy. From tho
latter Stanley learned, greatly to his
sorrow, of tho shooting of Major Bart-
tleot by a native a month before. Jamison had gone to Stanley Falls to try to
got more men from Tippo Tib. Ward
was at Bangala and Bonney was the
only white man at Bunalya. After
describing what a wreck he found the
rear column to be, Stanley complains
of the officers at Yambunga having too
rapidly accepted the deserters' reports
of his death and sending hii personal
kit of medicines, etc., down the Congo,
leaving him naked of necessities for
his return to Emin.
AN   ENORMOUS FOREST.
The letter then summarizes what had
been accomplished. The expedition
was 100 days in one continuous, unbroken, compact forest. The grass
hind was traversed in eight days. How
fur west beyond tbe Congo the forest
reaches Stanley does not know. The
superficial extent of the tracts described above, totally covered by forest, is
240,000 square milei. North of the
Congo, betweon Upsoto and and Am*
whimi, the forest embraces another
20,000 square miles. Between Yambunga and Nyanza Stanley came across
five distinct language!.
At a distance uf 60 miles from the
camp on the Nyanza they saw a mountain probably 17,000 or 18,000 feet in
height above the sea. It is covered
with snow. It is called Reuveuiori,
and will prove a rival to Keliinarrio.
Throo natives who had seen the lake to
the south agreo that it is largo, but
not so large hb the Albert Nyanza.
EMIN PASHA'S SITUATION.
Emin Pasha has two battalions of
regulars, the fint consisting of 750
ritles and the second of 640. Besides
theso ha hns n respectable force of irregulars, ln conversation withStanely
Emin said if he consented to go away
from there they would have nearly
10,000 people with thom. Emin was
much worried to know how all the
women and children, numbering over
2,000, could bo brought away. Ho
and Stanley discussed the matter at
groat length, but reached no conclusion.
Emin Baid tho Egyptians, of whom
he had 100 men, besides their woman
nud children, would bo very willing to
leave, and he would be glad to be rid
of them, as they undermine his authority and nullify hia endeavors to retreat, When he informed them that
Khartoum had fallen and Gordon Pasha wns slain, they told
the Nubians thut it wns a concocted story, and somo day the
steamers would ascend tbo river
to their relief. Emin proposed
after Stanley's departure to visit Fort
Bodo.
Stanley Bays in conclusion that he
insvtucted the officers at tho fort to
destroy it and accompany Emin to the
Nynnw. Ho hopes to moet tbem nil
there, as he intended making a short
cut to tho Nyanza along a new route.
