■    BRIEF GLIMPSES
Catti-Ii!  Itelnccn Sliuuvrs liy a Weary
UnmMcr of (lie a»tn.
On Tueaday afternoon tho rain was
falling aa probably it never fell huicq
the day that Nuali passed down the
Piwr on hia way to Mount Ararat.
Three or four citizens, more or loss
prominent, stood outsido the Colonial,
and a countryman or two wandered
aimlessly, noar at hand; endeavoring
to look hopeful of tlio rain letting up,
Tho weather wan tho one and only ab-
sdrbing topio of coiivarsstion. One in
dlyjdnal surmised Hint ihu ronson of
ihu eoutinuotl umlsturu was io bo
found in Uio fnot that iho (jelubmtion
domiuittue had forgottan to send Capt.
Peelo an invito, whilst an amateur tho*
olwiun oxpnumd a tirm conviotioii
Unit, faith iieiii" ablo to movo tlio
Rookies and plant, tlioiii iu tbo f-ulfj
boforo Ions the Hood gates would be
closed, lio baaed this pleasantIiopo
upon iho fact that New Wostiuinater
bud corlainly shown a wonderful
nniount of faith hi the ultimate success
of the exhibition.
Indeed, tlioro was uo doiibt ubout
tliat, for whei-over ouo turned, groat
preparations were benif* made inthe
decorativo art. WauduUng along Columbia and Front streets, numerous
busy hands wero lixmg iir branohoa to
the venmdabs, and already Thompson
& McPherson hnd a lavish display of
red, whito and bluo curtained over
their storo window. Around tho drill
shod wero congregated a number of interested Kpt'ctutors, cheerfully watch-
ing the carpenters at their work, oblivious of tbo fact that tho rain drops were
trickling from tho eaves df tlm building
down their uecka the while. For n
brief np-ico the sky oleured, and tho
rain ceased alike to saturate the juat
and unjust, aud at that auspicious moment tho now flagstaff at tho City Hall
was raised into position and tho Dominion fia*/ sot a-flyir.t*.
It is a notorious fact that nine mon
out uf ten, if thoy have two bits in
thuir pockets, will spend it in getting
shaved; and tliis may account in part
fur tha wealth of tonaorial artists as a
rulo. Remembering this faot, a weary
wanderer drew noar a well known hair-
droasov'B stand, being convinced that,
if the great rush of visitors had commenced to nrrivo. their attontion would
in tho lirst placo be devoted to beautifying their persona, Thero could bo
no mistake about tho matter. Two
cuUiirnats wero busy manipulating tho
cltin*i Of nu equal number of victims of
vanity with lathered phizes, whilst at
last a dozon candidates for martyrdom awaited tlio magic call "Next"
Returning to Front stroet the wandering onii'i* gaze becamo llxod upon
tho war ships, hung with dirty linen,
aud ut lirst he imagined thnt the
Chinese uf tlio oity had rented tho vessels for a floating laundry, until tho
dream of thia "consummation dovuutly
to be wished" was rudely dispelled by
tho advent on tho scene of his own
particular 'John,1' demanding with
much earnestness tbo sum of "throe
bitteo" for kst week's account.
Having disposed of tbo Chinaman
by menus not^of intorest to the general
public, ho then decided that a patriotic
spirit doinandod that be Bhould purchase mine decorations of hia own.
This he procured in the shape of a variety of colored material and, proceeding up the hill, fealooned his window
to tiio great admiration of an old cow
011 her way home from picking up a
living in tho woods. Then he wont
down town, tlio raiu starting in again
as though it never had a good show all
summer. But the decorations wero
more effective, than could havo been
wishod, tor tho rain washing the color
out, many charming streaks of harmonious color ran down lhc mint of
the house, making it look liku a patent
wall paper, a harbor's polo rolled flat,
or an enlarged edition of the flag which
Waves over "tho land of the freo lunch
and tlie homo of the bravado.*' Then
it was tlmt, damp, miserable, aud with
a sense of disr-uietude, ho remembered
that evory room iu bis house had boon
given up lo strangers, and thnt ar*
raugctncnts had been entered into for
him to Hnd a comfortable lodging upon
tb.! stairs.
Tho royal eity by daylight looked
damp. Tho alternate heavy rains and
drizzle had settled down to a steady
persistent downpour, evidently with
the intention that, having once started
in, it would continuo for all it wns
worth. Tho decorations looked tired
and the people on tho streets miserable.
The few bluejackets who wero visible
overnight were 110 longer to bo seen,
evidently thinking there is too much
wator iu Westmin ster for their allowance of grog. Thore were two, however, who bravely dolled tho elements.
Win. II. Ladner and his whito plug
hai. Hoth were mounted on the samo
"gee-gee,'' and the very evident dostro
of the honorable member to tnko
things as they wero and look happy
over them wna most (-commendable.
Breakfast timo at tlio hotola proved
thnt tho visitors woro in strong force,
and determined to mako iho host of a
very bad job nnd enjoy themselves as
well as they wero ablo. With
this Intention mackintoshes aud gum
bonis wero donned and everyone sur*
passed lho daring of Ajax, who defied
the lightning, hy snapping thoir fingers
in tho faco of tbo clerk of tho woather.
It wna a pity tbat the committee did
uot arrange for music of somo kind all
through tho celebration time, for when
the strains of lho band floated down
Columbia street, about 10 o'clock, old
Hoi took a most deliberate look around
the edge of a peculiarly virulent looking cloud with a faco expressive of
in 1 re surprise that anybody could be
cheerful under such damping conditions.
Tho City Hall was in great form by
this time, where the reception of visitors was held, Behind the mayor's
chair hung drapery of red, whito aud
bluo cambric, mounted by the flags of
Great Rritiin and tho United Statea at
each Bide, with au evergreen capital
und a shield in the centre, Above
this, in tnsteful dosign, stood out the
wurd "Welcome," whilst down tho
li'iii-th of tho hall woro well nrrangod
tables lndbn with cold viands, to which
tho guests did ample justico Mrs,
Miller, of tho Queen's, was tbo caterer,
and did her work 'well. All around
lho hull evergreens, interspersed with
Chinese lanterns and flags of nil na*
lions, added to the cheerfulness of tho
general appearance, and tbo gallery
front wab completely hidden by a mass
of boughs and branches. Tho approaches to tho doorway were rendered
vory pretty in appearance by a largo
number of young trees newly planted,
and tho civic officials, turned out of
their offices to mako room for cooks
and Bcullions, wandered hither and
thithor, ovor aud anon casting hungry
and wistful glances ut the good things
spread for tho city's visitors. The
premier looked in about 11 o'olock, and
seemed highly pleased with the general
appearance of things.
Almost immediately thu mill whistlo
blow, and the roportor was quietly
though firmly made awaro that no
loafers wero permitted to share in the
general good cheer, bo, starting off
down Columbia at, in the wake of tho
Scotch pipers, after much scr.imbling
for a plaoe, he eventually wub able to
oonsola himself with tho remnants of
what was onco a well ordered meal,
and this done, folt more sutiaiititl with
himself ami ihe world in general.

In fancy work the Ladners Indies
beat their Chilliwack and Surrey sisters all along the lino. The number
of articles exhibited 'was vory largo
and tho quality nnd beauty of tho
work would bo hard to equal. Tho
largest displays were made by Miss
Woodward aud Mias McKee, and they
were beautiful indeed. Many other

ments of fancy aud needlework, auy
one of which is worthy of special mention.
OATTLE, HOUSES AND SHEHP.

the lirst prize for wheat, E. Greyoll
and J. Kirkland for barley, aud C. F.
Green aud tho Jubilee Ranch for oats.
These samples wero all vory fine indeed, but tho oats, particularly, are
most worthy of special mention.
Tho samples, shown by Mr. Greou
and Jubileo ranch weighed 55 Iba to
the bushel, and tho black oats displayed by tho latter turn tho scale at 45 lbs.
H. A. Hicks showed a sample of potatoes, 54 lbs, raised from oue pound

Ho urged tbe ladies to use their
influence with their husbands and
brothers and lovers to spur them on to
greater interest in these competitions,
and concluded his able and interesting
address v it h a humorous allusion to
tho ladies' fancy work department of
the exhibition, after which he formally
declared the exhibition open. During
the delivery of tho address, Mr. Robson was repeatedly greeted with applause, and at the conclusion three
hoarty cheers (proposed by Mr. E. A.

him.

made bis appearance on the platform
at thu door, nnd having been introduced by tho president of the society, explained that, jis it would be some little
time yot before tho judges finished
their work, it had beeu nrrangod to
utilize time by his saying what he had
to say now, and whenever the judges
woro ready the presidont was to pull
his cunt tiil Mid he would stop. This
announcement was received with
cheers, and the scattered groups camo
togothor for the purpose of listening
to tho premier. Mr. Robson said ho
had "taken ui''the show and he con-
sidoved it highly creditable to the
Deltn; for, although there were a
number of excellent exhibits from
Chilliwack, Surrey aud other settlement-., it waa to be presumed thnt tho
Delta supplied the greater pait of what
constituted .inch a cieditabte whole.
Considering ihe weather and tho indifferent accommodation, ho felt jua-
titied iu congratulating tbo Delta upon
the success of this years' exhibit. He
said tho government had granted the
society 25 ncres uff tbo ichool reserve,
a little way up tho road, for oxhibition
purposes, and the hoped it would bo in
readiness for the next exhibition. Ho
then proceeded tooxpatiato upon the importation nud advantages of thoao competitive exhibitions, und administrated a well-desorved rebuke to thoao
who, cither from indifference or jealously, cent none of their productions
Every farmer should aim at attaining
tho highest posaiblo excellence, and
thus ennoble labor and placo agriculture in the high and honorable poai*
tion it ought to occupy. He pointed
out that not only was this a duty in a
local sense; but tbo best and moat effectual way to advertiso our glorious
provinco in tho great centres of population, and bring what alono was
needed (capital and population) to
mnke British Columbia the most pros*
Serous nnd wealthy provinco in tho
'Oiuiislon; it waa nlso a good
plan to send tbo best samples
of our productions for exhibition in Toronto aud other oaatorn centres, the comparatively meagre exhibit aent to Toronto tins year wna
attracting much attention, and would,
ho was assured, result'in much good.
How much moro would that be the
case if British Columbia would put
her best samples in theso centres?
Ho referred to tho provincial oxhibition to be hold nt Now Westminster,
and urged those present to go tothat ox*
hibltlon and send their beat Bamples
to it-remarking that tho people of
tho city had done right nobly in providing tbo moat ample facilities nnd
accommodation. He understood that
tho oity was expending about twenty
thousand dollars in that way, and he
hoped the farmers both in tho
Delta and elsewhere would manifest
thoir appreciation of such enterprise and    whole-souled    liberality

Wmln ■**■**■•* Evei-in**-, Oct. it, 1HM.
Last year, as our readers may ro-
inombei*, the npplu crop in tbo eastern provinces and  Etales was- such
n large ono that upples wero u drug
on tho market, and mnny shipments
of this fruit wero mndo to Europe,
principally to  England, with not
tho   most   satisfactory   results, ns
will   bc   SOOn.    According   to  tlio
Trade   Bulletin  of Montreal, very
heavy reclamations* were mado during tho summer of this year by English houses upon Canadian shippers
nnd farmers, on apple shipments of
lost year which hud turned out disastrously.    Several of those claims,
it was said, were so large as to ruin
tho persons making tlio shipments,
and the claims were placed in the
hands of proper parties for collection.    The total amount of theso reclamation   claims amounted to between §50,000 and 875,000, showing
how very disastrous were most of
the applo shipments of last season
across the Atlantic, when the fruit
lacked all this of paying even the
freight charges.   This yenr eastern
orchnrdists have u considerably loss
dreary prospect, and it is interesting
to noto that tbe brighter outlook is
on account of the comparative failure of tho npple crop in Ontario as
well ns tho eastern states,   Thero
is no glut on the market this season,
and the consequence is tin eager demand   and good prices; so u poor
crop,   under   somo   circumstances,
may be a blessing in disguise.   The
Canadian llortkuUutist, commenting   on the subject, says:  "If the
qui n* ity of apples in our orchards
in Ontario is small and the quality
pot r, there is, at least, somo satisfaction ia the prospect of good prices
ami of tor tho sud experience of last
yei-r we shall consider it in no. wny
unt'air   to take from consumers ds
much us 82.50 per bid. for winter
fruit f. o. b.    Indeed, only   u   few
we ik weeks ago summer apples sold
in Montreal at that Ugure, an unusual  thing now-n-days and which
iudicatos   u  hungry market.   'J,'lio
fart ia, apples are a very short crop.
New York Stato is one of the most
important apple-growing states in
the union, and the prospect is tlmt
it will not give 75 per cent, of
average   yield.    Ontario  probably
lins not 50 per cent, of air average.
Michigan promises a yield w.hicji
will   run   below the average, and
Ohio   u   very light crop.    Aside,
therefore, from   tho   impulse of n
fon-ign demand the prospect is, thai,
our dpples will nil  be required for
our homo supply, and that at constantly   increasing   prices,   unless
some   other   fruit3   li 11, tbo   gup.
L-'rpm our foreign reports we gather
thnt there will be a   lively   foreign
deiuand for apples also, ns the   crop
i;i Englnnd and on tho continent is
much below the average.    We hesitate to speak encouragingly  to   our
readers concerning the applo market,
after the misfortunes of last   year;
yet the conditions aro   different, for
while what wo said about the   English supply was   true, the  unprecedented quantities   sent   over   from
America exceeded the requirements
about one-half.    It will   not,   however, be necessary for us to  ship to
England to got good prices this year,
as v*o shall   be   ablo   to   command
them   at our own   doors,   without
risk."    However eastern fruit growers may bo nfl'ectcd by too   bountiful a crop, our orchnrdists   in   this
province need have no apprehension
about glutting the market for years
to come.    The supply is not nearly
oqui'l to the home demand   yet, and
then we have  the great contiguous
plains   of   the   Northwest, where
fruit practically cannot be raised,
for mi ever enlarging market.   British Oolumbia offers the most encouraging field  for tho operations of the
enthusiustio horticulturist, both for
the success  that will assuredly attend his oflbrts in fruit raising and
the   practically  unlimited   markot
that awaits hie products.
being introduced which will utilize
liquid fuel for domestic purposes.
Efforts aro also being made to introduce different kinds of petroleum
into England as fuel, and it may
come to pass that the apparently
boundless stores of petroleum in
Canada und other places will enter
into competition with our own coal
seams." ln this comparatively now
idea of "liquid fuel" the economist
bus tho answer to his anxious question of what the world shall do
when the wood and coal stores havo
become exhausted.
Tho wife of Gen. Boulanger lives
in tho deepest seclusion iu Versailles. Her acquaintances are usually
careful not to mention her husband's
name in her presence. Recently
ono of her frionds mado a slip of the
tongue and passed a slighting remark
concerning Boulanger's relations
with tho government. Mme, Boulanger answered : "When the general nskeil for a separation L refused

Dr, Schlioniatin, says an Athens
correspondent of tlio Cleveland
Leader, is infatuated with old Greece,
and ho wants nothing but Grecian
about hint. "His servants have
Greek names, and he never changes
these though the men may bo different, It is Pericles who always
opens the door, and Lycurgus lugs
up tbe coal frotn year to year. Ho
has two pretty children, and I
saw throughout the house the
paintings of Andromache, his
daughter, and I looked at the photographs of his little boy who has
tbo name Agamemnon. His wife is
a Greek. She is nearly a generation
younger than her husband, and she
was a girl studying at tho great female school of Athens, known as
tbo Arsakion, when Schlieinann
met. her. She was the best student
in her class, and when tho learned
doctor found that sho knew the
Iliad by heart, the gossips of Athens
say that he straightway proposed.
She was beautiful, however, as well
ns learned, and her potruit which I
saw on tho wall of the drawing-room
represents a very fine looking lady.
She is said to be as found of Greek
as her husband, and at a children's
fancy ball not long ngo her daughter
wore a dress liko those shown in
somo of tbe figures discovered in
the excavations of Trov.

last report, says that tho rcsidiusn

as an example, it is found that, although that city is 1,1500 miles from
Baku, the source of supply, yet the

Tho peasants novor livo in * Isolated
liousofl nbout thoir farms, writes Carl
Boiloy Hurst in tho Now York Mail and
Express. Thoy conic together and form n
little sottloinont, somethnos not moro than
a dozen buildings in all. So it is not Infro-
(juent to soo a smnll valley thickly dotted
with thoso ttorfs, or villages, whicli, if put
togothor, would mako a small town only.
Uno of thoso villages is secti to tiio best ad'
vnntogo at twilight in summor. Every
body is bnclr from tho day's work in the
Holds, and tho placo is now as full of lifo as
it wna doaortod at noon. Por then only tho
grandmothers and grandfathers, whoso
eyesight is dimmed or thoir joints rheumatic, stay at homo, and toll thoir young
descendants tho wonderful stories of
Witobos and hobgoblins, which they heard
Undoi* similar circumstances from their
grandfathers and grandmothers years and
yenr". ngo.
By dusk the peasants have already oaten
their sapper. Tho men ilo about and smoko
Mioir long pipes, tho womon mako thoir
knitting noodles Ily wbilo tlioro is light, and
tho children play tho identical gamo that
their parents played boforo thom, where
thoy join hands in a wido circle, sing and
not lho pantomime of tbo courtship of a sol-
i.'icrniKlu peasant gii-l.
As one walks ovor tho rough cobbla-
stonos of tho narrow street ho soos the
hou-ios, whoso tull, peaked roofs aro divided
into stories liko n pigeons'cote, n3 dirty anil
much more crowded. If you aro com*
H'-cous enough to enter and climb the
steep, rickety stairs, all the combined
Hindis of Cologne and Bagdad will greet
your nostrils. Tho various iloors aro owned
by different peoplo, and oven tho rooms
may bo bought or sold liko a plow or cart,
Two families usually occupy throo rooms,
using the middle apartment ns a general
kitchen and sitting-room. Tho poorer peoplo ofton havo only one room, whoro thoy
sleep, oat and drag out thoir ontiro existence, On tho bottom lloor of tlio solf-samo
house whoro thoy dwell aro stalled tho cows
mul oxen, t*ii '      ■ '■ i".•-,£■',
By stiuriso tho entiro population is up
nnd out in tho Holds. Not only docs tlio
limn shoulder a hoo or a Bcythc, but tho
woman falls In and works as well. Entire
families, except only tho vory nged, go out.
Children a fow mouths old, who have no
decrepit relatives in tho dorf lo keep an
cyo upon thom until evening, nro carried
ont by tho mothers and loft nndor tho shndo
of a neighboring trco.
Boys and girls aro obliged to attend
scliool until thoy aro scventoon, and if thoy
do not, tho parents aro lined. Iu tho busiest
pints of tho summer—tho season for galli
oi'ing Imps, making hay and other stated
tlmes-a vacation is given that tho children
may help iu tlto Holds. But, during any cf
these seasons, if it should set in and rain.
With no prospect of abating soon, school i3
culled again and continued during tho wet
woather; then tho teacher lays nsido his
ftuTulo until tho crops aro In. Tho laborers
carry nut their food for tho day with them,
Kvory ono 1ms a jug of cider or beer, wliich
ho drinks in place of water. Tho peasants
live almost entirely on grain food nnd
cheeso. Milk and buttor thoy exchange for
other moro necessary and less luxurious
artioles. . *-,
A great epoch in evory German's life,
and especially tlio Gorman peasant's, is the
servico in tho great standing army. Every
man who is sound in body and not deformed
must servo threo years. Money or influence
will not exempt a man from this iron law.
In case ho attends tlio university ho shortens liis time to onoyear. It is seldom, however, Umt the peasant lad goes furthor than
llio scliool, so that throo years aro taken
train the most active period of his lifo.
Dming tho whiter tho peasants arc not so
busy as wlion planting and gathering their
crops. When tho snow lies thick on tho
Holds tho mon thrash out tho grain, and tho
women spin and weave the flax, which they
grow thomsclvcs. Out of tho long rolls of
tliis heavy gray linon thoy mako clothes and
articles nocossary for domestic uso, A
great part of It, too, thoy storo away for
their children, who, In their turn, prosorvo
it for theirs, so that quantities are handed
town from mother to daughter, like lho
ui.mil heirlooms of pewter tankards and
spinning wheels.
Ono of the customs among the peasantry
Which doos not coniinc itself to any special
jeason, although in nccordnnco wilh tho
time-worn law is moro prevalent in spring,
is a wedding. And tlio preliminary arrangements aro somewhat complicated. Every
-firl is expected to havo her dowry, con
iistiug iu any caso of nn entiro household
iquipmcnt. from 'enormous feather-beds
,o knives and forks, Tho young woman
viio comes without tills supply generally
'eols protty much ashamed of herself, and
ho husband doos not receivo her with such
oy ns if she camo hidoned with a completo

I can always toll when it is going to

billiard balls Iu tho L'qlumbia fftoms just
after the recent deluge.

interested dlicetly.
"Why, thoro isn't a bolter barometer in

billiard cue," tho billiard expert replied;
"they nro bettor than a favorito corn."
"How d'yo toll!"
"A ball always rolls slow and with dlill-
ulty ovor tho cloth when it is going to

loiiipornturo, particularly from dry to moist,
.hat tho effect is felt almost instantaneou-i--

tho dampness is perceptible in any oilier

With potatoos if you do not watch their

FRONT  STREET,
New Westminster, Brit. Col.
liryan O'Lynn had no boots for to wear,
So he came to Westminster to buy him a pair.
"I'll have one pair of thick ones and one pair of thin,
If I can find J. Rousseau's," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He hunted the stores all along the main route,
Says he, "The right one I've not yet found out.
I want J. Rousseau—I'll buy only from him,
For he sells the cheapest," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He stepped a little west of McKenzie street,
He met Rousseau's sign—sure it was a great treat;
He lifted the latch, and Jim stood within.
" I've found it at last," says Bryan O'Lynn.
We showed him both Calf Boots, Kip and Cowhide,
The ones we praise mostly, without seams at the side.
We have Boots of all kinds, from Quebec and Berlin;
" Sure you have boots for the million," says Bryan O'Lynn.
He bought him his boots, which of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for we sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be nsst taken in,
But buy from J. Rousseau," says Bryan O'Lynn.
" If there is a leak in the toe or side of your shoe,
Just take it to Rousseau, that's all you need do;
He will peg it or patch it just while you are in,
And the charge seems like nothing," says Bryan O'Lynn.

Hot burghers of tlto ltoyal Burgli
Fling wide your Hags to-day!
Let business hug tlie wall a space,
Don festive garb;—let festive grace
And genial words have way!
Let house and heart be open wide !
Let pelf nml profit stand aside,
And smiles abound to-day !
The smile of kindly welcome,
Tiic smile of honest pride,
As eaat aud west and south ami north,
From town and hamlet pouring forth,
Holls in tho human tide !
Of ranchers stout from Chilliwack,
I ween a goodly train;
From far Sumas and Helta wide,
And Langley, by the Fraser side,
Famed for their golden grain.
From Somiahmoo'a sounding shore,
Where wintry nights aro wild;
From Matstiui's broad and fertile farms,
And Lulu, in the River's arms
Cradled like fav'ritc child;
From Richmond and from Katalo,

From where the headlong Harrison
Flashes In riQloa bright;
From Agassiz, with orchards
Of golden fruit bedight;
From Surrey's sunny nooks they come,
They come from far Chcnm—•
For he who stays at home to-day

And hardy fishermen are here.
Of divers tongue and race;
Hight glad are wc such men to aee,
Hight glad to givo them plaeo !

With miners from tho rugged hills
Where lurks tho yellow gold.

With boomers from Port Kells 1

Far up the shouting street 1
For to-day the Royal City old her portalB

And to-day a welcome fall and free slio

For, yon bet your sweet existence,

THE PROVINCIAL FAIR.
The Exhibition by Fnr tlio Most
Extensive and Successful of
uny Yot Held.
The Exhibits are Numerous and
Fine, in Spite of the Wretched
Weather.
A Brief Resume of Sonic of the
More Striking Displays iu
the Building:.
Tho first day of tho provincial exhibition nnd royal cily colobi-athm did
not open auspiciously. A polling rain
driven by a so uth westerly gale accompanied tho break of day, and tho
many hundred burghers of tiio royal
city who tumbled out of bed tu view
tho prospect tumbled iu again a moment later, diahontt-jned and annoyed
at the continued persistency of tho
weather to balk tlie many well laid
plana arranged fui tho pleasure of
ihusc who had come as visitors. Still,
every cloud hns a silver lining, and
remnants of the lining of several huge
masses of vapour showed themselves
distinctly beforo the hour of noon arrived. From early morning thn streets
were black with people, mostly visitors, who were taking in tho sights so
far aa they had boon prepared. Owing to lho wet weather yesterday, tho
decorations were not as fur advanced
as lliey should have been, but a large
forco of men were at work bright and
early nud tho streets soon a; sumo J a
bright and movo animated appearance,
which waa f-till further augmented
when every flag stair in tiic eity was
decorated with bunting. About 10
o'clock "O" Battery bund mndo ita
appearance and enlivened tbo atreots
with a number of fine aim. Then
came thu smart fife and drum band of
tho Now Westminster lilies, and moat
inspiriting music it played; lastly camo
tho Indian bund from the Burrard Inlet mission whoso playing was generally admired. Tho St. Andrews and
Caledonian society formed at 11 o'clock
and headed by Piper Fraser inarched
to the exhibition grounds, whore the
Caledonian games and sports were not
fairly commenced until about 2 p. nt.
In Uio exhibition buildings ull waa
bustle uud activity tho whole morning,
a small army being at work arranging
and classing the exhibits tuid displays.
Entries wero received by the -ocretary
till 1 o'clock, wliich extension of timo
was found to be necessary owing to tlie
difficulty many exhibitors encountered
in getting thoir goods to tho grounds.
At 1 o'clock entries closed, and Uio
buildings and grounds were eleared of
tlio people who camo iu wilh exhibits.
A walk through the main building reveals thu fact that the present will bo
tlio most Bucceasful exhibition ever
hold under the provincial association.
It is impossible to givo more than a
partial description to-dny of the prin
cipul exhibit-*. One of tho very finest
displays on tho first lloor is that of

lho kind ever made in the province.
The fruit and field produce exhibits
aro greater in numbor than ovor boforo, and also better in quality. The
unsettled stato of tho weather had tho
ciied of reducing tho exhibits in these
divisions by at least a third.
Cattle, sheep und horses are well
represented, as aro alao swine and poultry. Most of tho animals aro thoroughbreds

Four young men went to Nanaimo
lake ou a hunting expedition a few
dnys ago. Friday they went out on
the lake, when the boat, through aome
unexplained accident, capsized. Dixon,
Sabiatou and Marshall, after a hard
struggle, reached tho shore, but the
other man, Hugh Sowden, sank. The
men Bay that after the boat upset they
neither saw or heard Sowden, aud did
not boo him sink. They thought it
possible he might havo reached shore
in another direction, but that evening
and next morning not seeing anything
of him they thought beyond doubt he
wna drowned. A search patty havo

The Young Libernl-. gave Hon. Wilfred Laurier a great demonstration in
tho Pavilion, Toronto, Wednesday
night. When MeaarB. Laurier, Mowatt, and Fisher aud sovoral ministers
of tho Ontario cabinet mounted the
platform they roceived prolonged ap*
plauso. Mr. Laurier in hia speech
disclaimed any intention ou the part
of the Roman Catholic Church of
placing the supremacy of the Popo
over the supremacy of tho state. It
would, ho thought, be a treasonable
act for the legislature of Quebec to attempt to substitute tho authority of
tho Popo for that of the Quoen. Ho
concluded with an eloquent and tell*
ing argument for continental free
trado, in their fight for whicli ho said
he believod tho Liberal party was on
tho ovo of victory.

EUROPEAN   POLITICS,
London, Oct. 1.—A grout deal of
interest aud comment have been excited by the publication in tho Con-
temporary JReoieie of a long article, tho
authorship of which ia ascribed to Mr.
Gladstone, though no very convincing
reasons are given for supposing that it
was written by tha ex-promicr aside
from the doubtful ouo that the author
expresses thn opinion, wliich it is presumed tliat Mr. Gladstone unturlaiua
upon the subject of the article. The
article strikes uut boldly in powerful
condemnation of Italy's course in joining tho triple alliance, whieh places
her iu a position nhe has no right to
occupy. Italy, ho doclares, owes her
independence, wliich means everything
of valuo she possessea, to France, ami
it would bo tho gravest scandal in the
history of Italy if shu should became
involved in a fight againat France.
The government of King Humbert
wna not menaced aud thero existed no
state of affaira upon which it could
base au excuse for entering into n warlike combination whoso aims were palpably directed toward an armed conflict contemplating tho conquest and
degradation of Franco. Moreover,
Italy tuts nothing to gain by audi nu
alliance m* by a victory it might achiovo
in tho warfare its instigators nro seeking, and may cro long rue tho day
that she permitted herself to bu iiRcd
aa a cats-paw on tho strength of prom-
iscs that will never bu fulfilled. In
conclusion the article demands to know
whether or not England iB bound by
auy agreement to aid in tho objects of
tiuo alliance or to give countenance to
itB acts. If aho haa been committed
the poople of tho British empiro aro
ontitled to know by whom and with
what prospects of advantago to thia
country. The article ia coitain to
bring a Beml-ofllcial denial or avowal
of England's participation in tho triple compact, and somo interesting
revelations aro among the possibilities.
