No sooner had llio announcement
gono round tlmt the baseball match
wnii to commence, tlian the groat
crowds thronging the building mndo
a move fur thu railing nround tlio
grounds, and eaeh secured a "coign of
Vantage" nn best suited Ins or her taste.
Tho grand btand wna gay with tho
bright costumes of the ladies, aud tho
s'eene,' presided ovc.r by old Sol in
person*, wub just as animated and
bright nn could bu wished. Tho bnso-
Imli mutch wns between tho Vancouver
Jnnior* and ihe Mainland Club of
Now Westminster for a prizo of $25.
The teams wore pretty evenly matched
ns to physique, and Biartcd play at
12:1)0 p, ni., and from tho start it
could bo seen that the Wostminstor
team wuu going to havo it all their
own way. Mnny passages in tho game
would huvo done credit to older and
more experienced players. Some of
tlio Vancouver players exhibited surprising agility and great speed in making the bases. Grey, of Westminster,
excited admiration by his fine pitching,
while Groig, behind the hat, made
great work with the ball. Tho game
liiBlod until 2 o'clock and resulted in
the defeat of the visiting team by a
score of 18 to 9. It was pleasaut to
remark that very littlo quarreling took
plaeo ever the decisions, and tbo Vancouver men took their defeat easily
and with good grace.
TUB IA01tOS.SE MATCH.
Half an hour later thu licrcsao athletes
Btepped forward to contend. The
teams woro tho Vancouver Lacrosse
Club and tho New Westminster Club's
picked team. Tho mon on both sides
looked iu superb condition, and as far
as the Westminster's woro concerned,
it was no wonder, for they havo been
practicing night and morning for somo
lime past. Thu fruits of this hard
work were easily apparent in ovory
turn of iho play.   Tlio greatest inter-
made the second day of the royal city's

In tho lirm ^--mo tho Westminstor
goal wna hotly besieged and Bomo
splendid work was douo by both teams
at that point. The Vancouver team
displayed a vim aud determination that
only the steady, well disciplined and
cool play of the Westminsters could
check. After a short, fierce battlo of
sovon minutos, the bull went through
the Westminster goal, This victory
for Vancouver induced tho crowd to
pin their faith to tint club iu their anticipations for tho seuoiid game, bnt
tho result showed thom wrong. Dur*
ing this gamo a lot uf unseemly and
unnecessary wrangling took place
about ihu decisions of thu umpire and
a uew ono, E. Port, was appointod on
tho demand of the Vancouver team.
After almost half an hour of fine play
Westminster won tlio game, Tho
third gamo was won in about IS minutes by Westminster. Tho fourth
game, liko tho others, was sharp and
exciting, tho Westministors claiming a
goal at the end of five minute.-*, but
not being allowed it demanded and
woro given a new umpire, Anderson
taking tho placo of March. In 20
minutes tho homo team sent the ball
through tlio Vnncouvor goal. Tho fifth
game was won by Vancouver, after a
gallant struggle of nbout 10 minutes'
duration, nnd tho match was declared
iu favor of New Wostminstor,
A II III'-MAN T EVBN1K0,
The lacrosso match wns tho hist
item on the sports yesterday afternuun,
after whioh there was a genornl tush
for tho city to fortify the inner mau,
Id the evoning, according ioauiiounce*
■miiiifc- tho illuminations wore in order,
and the streets, arches, etc., wore lit*
orally abliwe with brilliant and vari*
hucd Chinese lanterns. The public
display was largely augmented by the
praiseworthy and patriotic eflbrts of
private individuals, and very gay tho
city looked, not only on Columbia Bt.,
but for long distances whore tho fantastic illuminations extended on mnny
parallel and intersecting Btreets, Iu
the vicinety of tho grounds, on Park
lane, nnd setting oft'the beautiful arch
at tho entrance to tho park, tho Chineso lanterns blamed forth again in ell
their glories, liko great glow-worms,
lighting tho returning multitude to the
exputiitlon grounds and huildim-s. The
main building itself, ablniio with light
from all its windows, domes nnd tur*
rod!, loomed lofty and glittoting
through the uight like a fairy castlo,
nud the swoet strains cf band music,
waftod on tho air from within the
building, completed tho illusion. All
tho ovening until ten o'clock, gay
crowds thronged through tho building,
examining tlio gorgeous display, which
wiw lit up brilliantly by gas jets. Tho
enjoyment of tho evoning was greatly
enhanced by tho presence of "0 Battery bnud ou the baud stand iu the
centro of the hall, and whon tho cloa-
iu-r hour arrived evoryono took thoir
their way towards tho oity, in carriages
and on foot, delighted with tho ontor*
tainiueiit and tho show. Tho favorablo turn in the woather yesterday,
after tho rather gloomy inauguration
of tho festivities, gavo a chcorful and
exhilarating aspect to everything and
In Ihu morning it wns found advisable
to pusipone the aquatic sports until thu
afturuooii, nt 2 o clock. Long buforu
that hour ihu wharves und docks,
landing slips, floating logs mid evory
available placo from whioh tho raoo
oould be viewed wero black with sight-
soers. The following is tho list of tho
judges iu tho boat races; It. T. Drum*
mimd, ,T. Laidlaw, W, Johnson, A.
Ewen, T. Ladner, Jas. Wiso, H. Elliott, Oapt. Grant, J. Harvey, and A,
M Herring. Tho sailing races wero
waived entiroly on nceount of there
being no wind. Not a breath disturbed tho glassy surfaco of the liver and
the sun beat down as on a summer's
day. The Indian baud discoursed
sweet music from a corner of tho 0, P.
N. dock, The first race was between
10-oarcd cutters, belonging to the
Royal Navy, over a courso threo miles
in length, for a purse of $30. A boat
eaoh from H. M. S. Acorn and Icarus,
outorcd for tho raco, and without
much delay a stmt wub made. The
Acorn kept edging away right through :
tho race, and before tho finish had distanced her opponent fully 500 yards. I
Tho Acorn's boat wns in charge of Coxswain Tickcll, the Icarus's was commanded by Coxswain Crossley. Win..
the bo.its passed the ships the tars
aboard cheered and shouted, and tin
cl-ipping of their horny hands sounded
like tho- crackling of musketry at a
distance. The cockswains cheering on
their men, and the jolly tars mnking
tho stout ashen oars bond again, while
tho foam curled from each rushing
prow, mado up a most exciting and
pleasing spcctncle. Tho Acorn won,
and th» Icirus men were given n con
solution prize of a dollar each.
Thu four oared gig race was next
contested and threo lino looking crews
entered; tho Valdez Islanders, Cnpt,
John Thomas, in their uoat skiff ware
very powerful mon-^with enormously
developed biceps und vaat shoulders
and chests. They seemed confident
of victory. ' Tho Mayflower, Cupt.
Isaac, from Hope, and tho Westminster (Capt. Bob Coul ts, of Westminster, fell iuto lino and all made a grand
start, the Valdez hoys falling to with
a beautifully even stroke antl faultless
time. When noar tho lower buoy the
rudder of tho Westminstor crow broke
ond thoy fell out of the race. Tho
Valdez won by about  four  longths.

ChtoaKo tn May last, has been tho recipient lately of a number of threatening
letters, and his frieuda say ho is a marked
man. In this week's issue of the paper,
Father Cronin hurls defiance at his
would-be murderers and snys ho will
never censo to expose and denounce tho
villainy of thu Irish secret murdering
societies, who arc doing so much to injure
tho Irish oaufo nml corrupting America.
His lifo is undoubtedly in imminent dan*

1IA1UH.V comiECT,
Oitawa, Oct. 3.—Tho Dominion
having failed to induoo tho British
government to tako somo action towards protecting British Columbia
seniors from seizure by tho United
Statos cruisers iu Behring Sea, aud to
secure indemnity for the owners of
vessels which have'been consficated,
Col, Baker, a prominent conservative
and follower of Sir John A. MaeDon*
nid, has resigned his sent as a representative of Britisli Columbia in tlio Dominion parliament, Mr. Baker, who
was at ono time nu ulliccr in thu British navy, for somo time has boen endeavoring to induco tho Dominion
government to secure some redress
for his constituent,*, who have lost
thoir vessol through seizure in Boh-
ring Son, but to no avail.
Picking his way, Wednesday afternoon, across an amalgam of anything but arpiapura and mothor earth,
tho wanderer of tho quill arrived with*
in Bight of tho triumphal arch leading
to the oxhibition grounds. Crossing
tho street, ho found that one of his
overshoes had preferred remaining in
tho mire to completing the cruise
across the roadway. The exhibition
grounds wero scarcely au improvement
upon the slush previously bo successfully piloted, and somo incentive to
perseverance was vouchsafed by his
meeting with a brother in distress, tho
genial manager of tho World, from
whoso limp and mud-Btained garments
the rain trickled iu an endless number
of littlo rivulets. There was quite a
crowd of interested spectators at the
Scottiah sports which wore proceeding,
und, although it rained as hard as
evor, not a few ladies stood fearlessly,
almoat ankle deep in tlio mud, to boo
the fun.
Tho peripatetic oritio had, however,
known tho comforts of a good home,
and so, to get out of the downpour,
produced his credentials and was at
onco admitted to tho oxhibition building, where the judges were hard nt
work. It is a matter of pride with the
writer that ho takes an intelligent interest in affairs buoolic, for, having
passed eight solid months upon a
ranch, and lived upon pork and potatoes, with an occasional slapjack to
vary the menu during all that time, he
considers that his apprenticeship has
been served. It was, therefore, with
much interest that ho beheld pumpkins, turnips, potatoes, bread, eggs,
butter, honey, and cheese aot out in
ondless variety and only awaiting judicious arrangement at the hands of an
experienced chef.
The exhibits were marvellous in
size and appearance. From one of the
walls was suspended a gigantic caso of
stuffed sea-birds, capitally arranged,
whilst at the other side of the building an exhibit of soaps attracted attention. To tho morbidly inclined a
first-class variety of tombstones was
ready to hand. Here, there, and
overywhore were beautifully arranged
stands, which have been fully desoribed by another pon in these columns.
Here it is sufficient to mention that a
model watch stand, exhibited by Mr.
Bradbury, of Vancouver, though
small, is worth a brief survey, being
elegant iu design and artistic in execution. Tho Mainland Cigar factory's
show caso is original.
Mounting the stairs, Miss Peeblu's
stand, laden with mnny pretty things,
faced the man who came to admire.
Prominent thereon is a jewel caso, a
priceless treasure, being the handiwork of Josef Mairo, the Christus of
tho Ober-Ainmergau Passion play. A
very handsome tea case, the work of
Miss Williams, is closo by, whilst all
arouud aro quilts, shawls, embroidery
and needlework of every description;
some of it worthy of a pupil of Hoi-
brnnner. The art section is remark-
abla for a perfect crayon portrait of
Cardinal Newman, the work of Miss
Wi throw, true to the vory line. The
ahow coses ore comparatively few here,
McPherson J. Thompson being, howover, represented by a tastefully ar*
ranged selection of articles and n
sword of very bloodthirsty appearance-
Near at hand an embroidered plush
screen, with pink roses, is vory
noticeable, and a large number of
plaques, mounted in plush, are nlso
attractive.
If art is but nature better understood, it must bo admitted that the
general display of pictures is somewhat
disappointing. When we say this wc
do not intend it to be inferred that
merit is altogether lacking; on ihe
contrary, there are quite a number of
works ou the walls eome of them of
considerable merit. Among them the
orayou portrait of Miss Nellie Withrow
is really by far the very ben thing in
thu show. The features are lifelike,
and although evidently a copy of a
photograph, we cannot but think that
thu artist must at somo timo have seen
and caught the expression so full of
character of the greatest living master
of tho English language. In thu crayon department Miss Lewis has a most
admirable display, and her show
though small has succeeded in carrying
off not a fow first prizes. Tho display
in oils is generally speaking below par.
A very line sunset, however, deserves
a pasting word of praise for its tone,
and the portrait of a man smoking and
in a brown study hus a vory natural
expression about the lowor part of tho
face, somewhat marred howovor by tho
gluutliness of the face. Near at hand
is a littlo gem representing a study
frum still life. The coloring is effective and tho general appearance most
natural. Tho samo remark may bo
mado regarding tho portrait of a dog
near at hand. Almost hidden by a
number of sowing maohines ie a
painted photograph exquisite in pose
and natural in tint. Thompson's display iu photography i> nlso woithys
moro than cursory survey. Betweon
Miss Lewis' collection and tho near
wall of the building arc a large number
of water colors and oils, among them
being n good black and white waterfall
sketch. Thore aro a large number of
really excellent works displayed by
Mrs. E. J. Miller's pupils, merely
placed on the walls to make a good
show and not necessarily for competi-
Tho genoral tone of theso is
Children Cryfor Pltcher'sCastorla
tion. ^-.-^^^^—
very high. Furthor along is a copy of
"The Ohallongo," a very long way
after Laudsoer, and all around aro
a really excellent number of plaques.
A painting on tnpistry, of a water carrier is worthy of remark too, but lack
of space forbids us to enter into any
detailed criticism of tho works exhibit-
It would be welt to appoint, in
future years, a committee of selootion
before the picturos are hung.
As to the flower and fruit displays,
thoy aro not a whit behind tho show if
roots on tho ground floor, and that is
no mean praise. Thoro have seldom
beon seen such apples as are hero displayed to the tempted appotito, nnd if
tfiden wns ono-half so fruitful as British Columbia, the mystery of our first
mother's fall needs no explanation,
Tho outsido show is interesting to
those who understand cattlo, pigs and
poultry; us tho writer's knowledge of
livo Btook is confined to the good effects
uscertainnblo by the palate, after the
animals have left the kitchen, he naturally considered thst the chickens re-
attired boiling, and the pigs roasting,
ut the shsep ihould hive been served
with caper sauce and turnips, whilst
the pigeons would not havo beon out
of place beneath a good puff crust.
Having dissipated to the extent of a
cup of coffee and a plate of ham at the
W. 0. T. TJ. restaurant, aud the rain
still falling, tho writer struck a hoe-
line for "Home, Sweet Home, there's
uo place like lodgings." The evening
iu town was entertaining. Jack ashore
wus in full blast, tho saloons ringing
with hiB jolly choruses, and crowds of
landsmen vicing with each other in endeavoring to make him as helplessly
"full" as they could; not always succeeding, however, until they them*
selves had arrived at a stige of maudlin benevolence.
About 8 o'clock Thursday morning
the Acorn and Icarus opened tho pro*
oeedings by a liberal display oi bunting. Thu morning, though better
than most we havo had lately, was "
not ideally correct. The glorious
dawn was not iu "russet clad,'1 but
gradually aud sullenly made its ap-
pearunco through a veil of murky cloud;
tho air was raw and chill, and inky
fulds of heavy moisture enveloped the
eity. This did not prevent clmnticler
from hailing the anything but bright
and smiling morn, howover, and every
chicken roost in the city waB aloud
with music long before the majority of
tbe Royal burghers had slept off tho
effect.*, of tho ball,
Aa the day advanced the sun, thinking bet*-er of its early intentions, shone
with summer heat; forjike a coy maid
anxious to soy "yes," but with with a
strong coquetry upon her, old Sol
played hide and seek behind the lowering clouds, until curiosity being too
much for the old boy, he suddenly
made a big break and beamed benignly
over all the gay and festive scene.
A drive around the streets whilst
the procession was undor way was an
eye-opener. Never bad the Royal
oity been so full of peoplo, and never
was there a better tempered crowd.
Grand Marshal Ackerman was like Sir
Boyle Roche's bird, everywhere at
once, whilst Wintemute's buffalo rampant cumo up Bmiling after the rain,
and his glowing eyeballs emitted an
unwonted fire as he pawed his standing
place impatiently.
Suddenly upnn the ear fell the om*.
inous tones of the passing boll, denoting that the unfortunate victim of
Wednesday's acoident was on his way
to his long homo. For a moment a
shads of Badness passed over tlm mut*
titude, for the warning note, like tho
sword of Damocles, told again the old,
old story, that in the midst of life wo
nre in death.
Here they come, and tho procession
is en route, brave with music and bunting. Whero all is so good it would bo
uncivil to mako comparisons. Tho
people on the sidewalks and throng*
ing windows and balconies are evidently moro than abundantly satisfied, if
their cheering, hand clapping nud exclamations of admiration nre any testimony whatever. Tho roads arc ankle
deep in mud, but what of that; love
laughs atlocka, and thu Royal burghers
do not intend to allow uu inch or *so,
more or less, of filth to mar thetr enjoyment. Ab thu procession atititK,
tlie Irving hurries up all steam to land
her pat-Bongora from up river in time for
the sliow.
Tho crowd nt tlto exhibition nnd
sports in the afternoon was simply immense. Tho writer has had a considerable experience of large gatherings
of people, and ho thinks that at any
one timo thore could not have beon
fewer than 5,000 people within the
grounds, and that probably 7,000 would
be nearer the estimate. Bright weather
attracted brighter costumes and the
ladies were resplendent, whilst many
an old timor donned some distinctive
and attractive artiele of apparel in
honor of Westminster's colossal festival. Was thero ever bo good-natured
a concourse! Everybody was enthusiastic, everybody genial and iu high
spirits. Happy*go*luoky Jimmy O'Hal-
lorau was the very personification of
satisfied humanity. Driving u hack,
he positively beamed with smiles,
making everyone he camo into contact
with vote him tho heartiest fellow on
tho field. Baby buggies ad libitum and
ondless, proved that the royal city was
well to tho front with n sturdy rising
generation.
After supper the crowds thronged
the sidewalks until they bocaine almost
impassable, Everyone who had a
quarter displayed a choice lantern, and
tho length and breadth of the city waa
ablaze with light. Dash wood Jones
made a first-class illumination and tho
same may be said of nearly all. The
upper street], too, wero in no way be*
hind. Upou Agnes st. Mr. Johnston
and Aid. Curtis had a bravo display
and the City Hnll glowed again with
tastefully arranged lanterns. Mr.
Chas. Warwick's house was a picture
of light, and much pains must havo
beon spent ovor the doing of it, the
back as well as tho front of tho houso
showing a capital display. The residences of ex-Mayor Dickinson, H. V.-'
and A. A. Webster were alio beautifully
illuminated as was also Mrs. Stirsky's
lodging house, and from Columbia
stroot and1 the river lookod vory nice.
It was lato when the streets aaaumed
their air of wonted quiot. Never before had the royal oity scon such a
crowd and never before had she shown
hor hospitality with such lavish grace.
AU passed off woll and orderly, and
not a man misbehaved himself, Tho
sailors proved themselves to be gontle*
men out on u holiday, and they thoroughly onjoyed it, too. As iho streets
cloarod, ono and all declared thoir firm
intention to finish the celebration with
a yot bigger flourish than this memorable day had afforded.

Although nothing could have been
more dampening find disheartening
than the weather which immediately
proceeded and greeted tho first day
of tho exhibition und sport'', tho
clerk of tho weather, liy giving us
two tlltys out of three Queen's
woather, and those thu most important days of tho ujiow- hus dono
much to redeem his \m\ record of
the former part of the woek. Nothing could be finer than the mellow
autumn sunshine whioh Iiaii' flooded
tho royal city today, dried up the
last vestiges of mud on the streets,
anil imparted just what was required of brightness and cheerfulness to
the guy sceno within the city and at
the grounds. Westminster had determined, and was succeeding ad*
mii-ably, to havo a successful exhibition and carnival in spito of tho
weather, but the glorious sunshino
of to-day and yesterday afternoon
added an element to the occasion
without which success could liavo
been but gloomy nt the best, and
which will enable our thousands of
visitors and guests to carry away
with them the brightest and happiest impressions of tho royal city
nnd its great fair and carnival.
ln   the  current number of  the
' Fortnightly Review Al. B. Paul -foumart makes a  strong  statement of
the caso against capital punishment;
He begins by asserting that the two
ultimate objects of punishment are
the   protection of   society and  tho
reformation of the criminal, but that
the lutter especially has   been   rendered almost impossible in  England
by the  persistence with which   lho
law has clung  to  punishment   by
death.   Mirabeau once said that the
English nation wns the most merciless of any that he   hud   heard   or
read of, nnd the faet that so lute as
the time of George III.   there were
on the English statute book nearly
two hundred crimes punishable with
death seems to justify tliis  opinion.
Sinco then, it is true, a great chango
has been effected,   and   nt   present
the capital penalty is inflicted  only
in cases of treason or   murder, but,
ii3 the many relaxations of tlio penal
code have not been accompanied by
auy increaso of time,   many people
have begun to believo that   punishment by death should bo  abolished
altogether.   Their reasons fordoing
so   are   briefly summarized   by M-
Neuman.   Tlio first of   theso  ren-
soris is that thore is no certainty in
tho application of  capital   punishment,   Lawyers say that  there  is
nothing moro difficult than  to  obtain a verdict of guilty from  a jury
whero the charge is   murder.    Unwillingness to accept   responsibility
for tliu death of a fellow-being  influences jurymen fur more frequently than most people are aware, and
the result   is   that   conviction  for
murder is most uncertain.   In those
of the neighboring statos   in whieh
cap* tal punishment has been abolished the reverse  is  tho case,  nflM.
■Noutnun shows by tho testimony of
tho.- e able to speak   authoritatively
on the subject.   The conclusion   is
that cf  all   punishments   used by
civilized nations that   by death   is
tho most erratic and   uncertain   in
its application, Probably tho strongest  argument  against   the death
penplty, however, is that its   deterrent eilect   is  greatly exaggerated.
M. Neuman points outs  in the first
plac.J that dotorrenco is not tlio only
thing to be considered in this  connection, for, if so, it would be  easy
to justify   punishment   by torture,
mutilation,   or   oven     vivisection,
lint, without going into   tho  argii*
■   ments as to tlio deterrent effect   of
tho death penalty,   tho   fact   that
numerous European  countries  nnd
several states of tho American union
have either abolished it or practically
dispunsed with hanging for murder,
with good results, is  of  itself   the
very best evidonco   tbat   tin's  supposed effect  is  generally over estimated.     Among other testimonies
on this point is that   of'Governor
Washburn, of Wisconsin, who wrote
in 1873:   "It is twenty years sinco
the abolition of capital punishment.
No stnto can show greater   freedom
from   homicidal   crime.     With  n
population representing almost overy
nationality,, statistics    show   that
crimo instead of increasing with the
growth of tho stato has  actually diminished,''     Similar    evidence
furnished by tho criminal   statistics
of other  states   und   of  numerous
European countries.   Finally, thero
is much in what John Bright in the
days of public executions once said
of capital punishment, us follows:
"Whenever you hang a man  in the
face of the publio under the circumstances to which we arc  so  accustomed ia thia country, if you do in
the slightest degree deter from crimo
hy tho shocking nature of tho punish
ment, I will undertake to say   thnt
by so much—nay, by much more
you weaken that othor'and greater
security whicli arises from the rover-
ence with which human life is  regarded."   Other arguments advanced by M. Neuman are that the death
penalty is not susceptible of  graduation, that it iB not reformatory in
oharaoter, that it shocks tbe moral
VOLUME Va-NO.
sense of tho community, and that it
destroys sources of evidence. Although this question of capital punishment versus non capital punishment is a moot quostion of long
standing and one which experience
has shown to be extremely difficult
of a final and satisfactory determination, it is becoming increasingly
apparent that public sentiment is
steadily growing in strength against
the practice.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Mr. George Mil Her, who is travelling and preaching among the Himalayas, has written tlie 50th annual
report of his famous orphanage at
Bristol Eng. Sinco the institution
was founded it has received and
spout more than -£550,000 • more
than 100,000 persons have been entirely supported and educated in it,
and tens of thousands materially
assisted ; five largo houses, capable
of affording homes for 2,050 orphans,
have been built at a cost of $575,-
000, and GG schools are now maintained. Yet the institution has
novor been a penny in debt, nnd
lias never, directly or indirectly,
ashed for human aid.
Princo Bismarck's bill against
strikes is a very sweeping measure.
It sweeps away tho liberties of
workingmen. The bill defines a
strike as a conspiracy, for which
sevcro punishment is meted out to
all talcing part. Whero nn agreement has been entered into, express
or implied, to work for n certain
fixed period, and is violated by a
combination among the workmen,
tho punishment is doubly severe.
All who iii public advise and counsel
others to take part in a strike
are declared public enemies, and
may be either imprisoned or
exiled, It looks as if the Prince
wus anxious to promote emigration.
At n dinner, not long ago, Wilkie
Collins related instances proving
how impossible it was to introduce
into a novel descriptions of places
nnd tilings .wholly imaginary. In
ono of his works ho describes a
house whioh ho had never seen and
entirely the offspring of his imagination. A few days after the publication, n man called upon him to
protest against the introduction of
Ids house into tho novel, St rango
to say, the pages of the novel contained a perfect description of tho
man's property, At another timo
ho used :u one of his oharticters a
man who so exact about his fating
tliat he weighed overy morsel which
entered liis stomach. Mr. Collins
had in reality never hoard of such n
man. He was grently surprised,
one'week after the appearance of his
hook, liy the visit of an utter
stranger, who wished to know by
tvlint right Mr. Collins made him
ridiculous in print by Mentioning
one of his peculiarities.

'EGGAR'S FOUNTAIN.
A  Beautiful Legend  Current in
i Northern Italy.
'I'lio Story of ii llluli Man's  Moaiint-ss ami
His Terriblo riinUliinout-Xlio Curso
of Thirst-How tho 8*ioH Was
'   Broken at Last.
Tlioro is in Italy a fountain over whioh is
Uu; statue of u bog-gar drinking at a spring,
called tho "Beggar's Fountain," and
Una Is its story!   Onco upon a timo thoro
inl, so says tho legend, a vory proud and
*'hty man, who hated tho poor and sot
isolf above all the world who woro not
wealthy and well-dressed as himsolf,
and his want of charity was so great that
ib had become proverbial, and a beggar
would no more havo thought of asking
im'-id at his gate than of asking him for all
litHfortune.       *-%' ■■■      * im**,'
Howovor, there was a spring on his land,
a, sweet spring of cold water, and as it was
only ono for miles many u wayfarer
*ed to drink of it, but nover was permit*
Led to do so. A servant, well armed, was
kept upon tiio watch to drivo such persons
away.        ■■•■::■::>:• .- -■- ■ . • i     ■- ■ **?, v
Now, there never had beon known before
nny ono bo avaricious as to refuso a cup of
told water to his foUow-man- and Uio
ngels, talking amongst each other, could
oi. believo it; and ono of them said to tho
est! "■■■.■••     *>, ,.■.*,....
It is impossible for any but Satan hini-
eir.   I will go to earth and prove that it is
ol. truo."    .-.--. ......
And so this fuh* and holy ungol disguised
lLM-sclf ns n boggar-woman, covered her
•oiiion hnir with a black hood, aud chose the
noment when the master of tho houso was
limseif standing noaV.tho spring to como
lowly up tlio road, walking ovor tho stones
vith bare feot, and to pause bosido tho
ouutatn and humbly ask for a draught of
_s sweot water. . • ■■- ...   • ■■.-■t._^y-
Instantly the servant who guarded tho
pot interposed tho piko ho carried, but tho
ugc], desiring to tako news of a good deed,
ot of an evil ono, back to heaven turned to
he master himsolf. • ■<•*.,,<.
'Kir," sho said, "lam, asyousoe, avvan-
ci'cr from afar. See how poor ray garments
ro, how stained with travel It is not sure*
y at your bidding that your servant forbids
io to drink. And even if it is, I pray you
id him lot mo alone, for I am very thirsty."
Tho rich man lookod at her with scornful
yos and laughed contemptuously.     ■*
"Tliis is not n public fountain," ho said.
You will Jlnd ono in tho next village"   '
"Tho way is long," pleaded the angel,
and I am a woman, and but weak."
Drivo her away," said tho rich man, nnd
s he spoko tho beggar turned; but on tho
istanthor black hood dropped from her
end and revealed floods of rippling golden
ui'*--her unseemly rngs fell to the ground
and tho shining robes that angels wenr
bono in tholr place. Por a moment she
overod, poised on purple wings, with hor
auds folded on hor bosom and an ineffable
ivcelnossof sorrow in her oyos. Then, with
gush of music and a Hood of perfume, sho
nni'Uicd.
Th.; servant foil to tho earth like ono
end, Tlio rich man trembled and cried
it, for ho knew that ho had forbidden n
ipuf coldwntcrto an angol, and horror
issossod his soul.
.Almost instantly, nlso, a terriblo thirst
ill upou him which nothing could assuage.
i vain ho drank wines, sherbets, droughts
' nil pleasing kinds. Nothing could sialic
s thirst. Tho sweet wator of tho spring
as Halter to him than tlio Bea. He who
Jvor in his lifo lind Known an iingraiiliuii

'er-unsatisfied longing: but through this
Itibry ho began to understand what ho

liarlty was the business of his lifo. Tho
untaln was no longer guarded, and near
hung over a oup ready for any ono who
lose to uso it. But tho curso—If curso it
cie—was nevor lifted. ;
The rich man—young whon tho angel
sited him—grow middle-aged, elderly,
d, still tortured by this awful thirst,
■lite his prayers and repentance. He
id given away his substance; ho had lihn-
■1T broken bread for tho most misorablo
'ggtu-9 who camo to his door. ■ - <
And at eighty yoars of ago, bowed with
lirm ily and weary of his -life, ho sat
io day bosido tho fountain wcoping.  And
along the road ho saw approaching a
oggar-womun, hooded in black, wearing
ardkt rags, and walking over tho stones
ith her bare feet.  Slowly sho camo on

"May I dri ik'" she asked.
"Thero nro none to forbid theo," said lho
d man, trembling.   "Drink, poor woman,
nco an angel was forbidden horo, but that
nio has passed.   Drink nnd pray for one
hirst.   Horo is tho cup."
Tho woman bent over tho fountain and
Hod tho cup; but instead of putting il to
ii-own lips alio presented it to thoso of the
d man.
-Drink, then," sho cried, "and thirst no

Tho old man took the cup nud emptied it.

When tho hat waa produced It was discovered to bc very much nfter tho shape a;
fcelcd by Ilaiulin, but it boro a badgo i-
mouruing, which omblom the Vieo-Fresidoi-;
ripped off' with his pou-knife. The pan/
stood chatting merrily as they waited foi
tho carriage.-- to bo driven up, when a man
slopped directly iu front of Mr. Hamlin and
stood staring nt the "tile" with which hi.',
bond was covered.
"What are you looking ot, oirf" asked
Hamlin, sharply.
"Your hat," answered tho limn, mildly.
"If it had n weed en it I should say ll wna
mine,"
"Well, it hasn't got a weed on il, has it;"
asked tho Vice-President
"No, sir," said tho hatloss man, "it
hasn't."
"Then it isn't your lint, is iti" said Lho
proud possessor of It.
"No, I guess not," said lhc mau ar, ho
turned to walk nwny. When this li t Ir*
seanc was explained to Prcnidcnt Rlnfoln
he laughed heartily and said:
"That reminds mo, Hamlin, of a long
limn ago when I waa pioneering and sol
dioriujfin Illinois aud wo pUtup^i joko on
some officers of tho' United Btates army.
My parly and I wero along way off fi*;.i
lho comforts of civilized life, and our ojiljf
neighbors wore the garrison of a Unit**"
Slides fort. Wo did protty well for ratlonp,
had plenty of salt meat and flour, but milk
was not to be hud for lovo or money, and tpi
woalllongod for tho delicacy wo thought it
pretty mean that tho officers of tlio fort,
who hud two cows—a stubbod-tailed on--
and a black and whito ono—offered un no
milk, though wo threw out many and strong
hints thut it would bo acceptable. At last
after much consultation wo decided to teach
them n lesson uud borrow or steal ouo of
those cows, just as you choose to put It. But
how it could be done without the cow
being at once idoiililied and recovered was
the question. At Inst wo hit on u plan. Ono
Of otir party was_dispatched a day's ride to
tho nearest slaughter-house, whoro ho procured n long, rea cow's tail to match tho
color of the stub-tailed cow, after possessing ourselves of which ■animal wo neatly
tied our purchase to tlio poor stub, and with
appetites whottod by long abstinence wo
drunk and relished llio sweet milk wliich
•our cow' gavo. A few days afterward wri
were honored by a call from tho commander
of tho fort. 'Say, boys,'snid he, 'we have
lost ouo ef our cows.' Of courso wc fell
very sorry nnd expressed our regret accordingly. 'But,' continued the commander
'I came over lo say that if that cow of yours
had a stub tall, I should say it was ours.'
"'But sho hasn't a stub tail, has she!'
asked wc, sure of our point
" 'No,' said tho officer, 'she certainly has
not a stub tail.'
"Wqll, she isn't your cow, then,' and our
argument was un answerable, ns was Ilum-
Hn'a."
OLD-TIME   BARTERING.
A Custom of Om-  Gmiittflitlicra That tliit.
I'tiUcm Into Msiiao.
"There is not so muoh bartering in prices
nowadays as thero was when I first wcnl
nio business for myself," said a merchiini
to a Utiea Observer man tho oilier day
'The timo wns when a merchant expected
that overy pieco of gooda thn., ho offered for
alo would bo cut down in prico by the per
sistoucy of Ills customers. It wus oxpeeted
and looked for, and wo often named n higher'
price for the goods than wo realty nsl-ul fnr
them so wo might drop to suit the whim ot
tho bartering buyer. I do not know where
tho custom camo from. I only know that It
existed and was vory annoying, pci p!:
would barter for hours oyer a small article,
and often go out and iu a short timo rotuin
and say they could buy it at Brown's oi
Smith's for so much less, nnd try ami beat
you dc wn to lhoiigr.ro thoy named. Some
men and women were noted fol* thoir bar
taring propensities.
"I remember oue of thoso old fellows who
used lo barter for hours at a timo over common and small purchases. I hud a clerk
who cumo here from IJinghauitoii, nud Ilia
first advi'iituro with tho old man was aliening, Tiio clerk sold him about ono dollar's
worth in tlio forenoon. Tho noxt time oar
hard-Jlslcd customer camo tho Biuglinmtoii
boy dropped a pleasant customer so ho
might got a chanco to wait on him. Hickory shirting was askod for, aud tho olerl
charged him tlilrty-iivo couta n yard. The
customer hold forth about ton minute*-,
when the clerk excused himself, and, stop
ping back to the office, opened an onyolopa
lying on tiio desk. Hushing back to his
ouBtoutoV, who was rubbing tho goods lie-
iwcciihis thumb and linger, tho clerk aaid:
"Excuse me, but wo have just received a
telegram from oiiV-Enstoi'ti correspondent,
and theso goods liavo raised len con's i
yard in tho market; it will cost you forty,
livo cents now." The old man looked
dumfouuded for n moment and offered
thirty-llvo cents. Tiio clerk walked back to
tlio desk, louked at tho euvclopo Ugain,
picked up a paper and pretended toghwoo
atthe markets, conversed in a low lone
wilh ono of tho book-keepers, und went
back to hia customer wilh the statement
that tho goods wero rising very rapidly in
lho market, and as wc lind only ft fowpiocos
wo could not think of selling it Jess than
fifty cents a yard, ami tiio next oustniuor
tun*U-amo would have to pay fifty-five cents
or sixty conts. Tho astounded farmer of
fcred forty-live cents, wliich tho clork accepted after extorting a plodgo that tho
buyer ahould not tell how cheap ho got It."
Uow Some* -lii'ii ('ul ltlcli.
That wasn't a bad investment which
Brwln Davis made a couplo of years ago,
lays tlio New York Wold. Hrwin Hnvls ii
tho capitalist who no successfully tried lo
icll his gultcryof paintings soin£ months
igo nt fancy upset prices. Ilo is u smarter
ilnaucler than picture seller. About two
pours ngo lie happened lo leuru thnt tiio
second mortgage bonds of the Klehmoiul &
Alleghany Railroad Company could bo pur-
insO™ at a very low ilguro. Davis bus a
yearning for ft low-priced railroad bond.
He looked into lho mutter and found
that tlio company had defaulted on thoin-
terost, tind was apparently going to wreck
-.inl ruin. He bought the entire issue,
18,000,000, from tho disgusted holders at 10
ionts on tho dollar. That was an Invest*
nent of .$200,000. Being interested In tho
road ho now insinuated himself into the
management and very soon ho controlled
tho board of director!'. Ho so worked
things that un entire reconstruction of tho
roud scorned imperatively necessary, lie
ikon invltod tho attention of Mr. Huntington to tho faot tbat his Chesapeake & Ohio

Bryan 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 scams 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, wliich of course were no trash,
He paid down the money, for wc sell only for cash;
To the public he says, "Be not 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,

London, Oct, 3.—Tho Standard
Bays: Tlio czar will arrive in Berlin
next Tuesday at 3 o'clock in the afternoon, flow such minute information
irt gained is nut known, and tho statement is received as another rumor,
more or less Iruo, which no ono outsido of official circles knows anything
positively.
OUIt NBXT ijOVrniNOl'-OBNi-lUT,,
London, Oct.- 3. — It is hinted
that Lord Stanley is not going to remain his full term of office ns governor-general oi C'uiadn, but that ho
will return to England to take
put in tho next genera! elections for
tho British parliament as it supporter
of Lord Salisbury, and a prospective
member of his cabinet. It is said
Queen Viotoria is anxious that tho Earl
of Fife, her new grandson, shall be
unsigned to the post of governor-general of Canada.
Tho annual dinner of tha directors
oftho British Columbia agricultural
aBSpeiation took place laat evening at
tho Queen's hotel. Tho "spread" it- 'Al-P
self was oue of thu daintiest over
dished up by tho Queen's. The tables
wero most tastefully hud out with
flowers and cut glass, ond plates for
100 persons wero set on, At 8:30, tho
schedule hour to begin operations,
scarcely anybody had arrived and not
until 10 o'clock did the party sit down.
Thore wero uly 23 presout and 5 of
those wero journalists. At tho lop of
tlio table cat tho president, W. H.
Ladner, M, P. P.; at his right wero
Mayor Townsond and Aid. Curtis; at
his loft, Senator Mclnuos, Mr. Strain*
berg, A. E. Beck, Yancouvot? and, G.
D. Brymner.
Aftor tiio munu had beau disposed
qf, the toast of "Tho Queen'' was
drunk with all honors. Tlie mayor
then favored tlio company with a lino
song entitled, "tho Queuu and tho
navy forever." Tills received thunders "of applause. "Tlio Prince and
Princess of Wales" was the next toast
and was enthusiastically honored.
The toast of tho "governor-general"
brought tho president to his feet; ho
said he was sorry Lord Stanley was
not present, also Lieut.-Governor Nelson; but Lord Stanley was coming and
they would givo him a royal reception.
Senator Mclnnes responded to the
toast of "iho Dominion parliament.-'
The senator aaid ho would not inflict
a political speech or a sermon upon
his hearers, but would rather choose
to remark upon tlie exhibition and
drawn few comparisons betweon its
exhibits and what ho had seen abroad.
Wo hud hero an exhibit open and to
tho inspectionn of tho world. Ho had
lately seen tlie great Paris exposition
and ho had gone through it with ears
and oyes open, partly from habit of no
doing but especially for the sake of
Now Westminster nnd tho province.
He had paid particular attontion to
tho natural products shown in that
great exhibition and after having seen
tho product) exhibited at Westaiiastcr
hu waa proud to think that ho was
a British Columbian, and right here
ho would tako lhc liberty of Baying,.
even in tho presence of Professor
Saunders of Ottawa, that tho government never made a better appointment than that of Professor Saunders
to tlio British Columbia oxporimoutal
farm. That gentleman had generously waived several important business
transactions to be present with them
to-day, aud this magnanimous conduct,
he was suro, was deeply appreciated.
The speaker, continuing, aaid that he
had seen in the markets of Rome,
Kanlcs, Genoa, Borne, Frankfort,
and oven old London itself, specimens
of thoir fruits, vegetables and natural
productions, but not in one of thoae
great fruit and vegetable producing
countries had ho evor seen anylhiug
to equal tho products of our own pro
vinco, (applause). Nc, nothing to
compare with the magnificent fruits of
uur soil; and iu that great exhibition
lately held in Toronto no single exhibit
stood out more prominently than that
of British Columbia. The eloquent
speaker gavo a very interesting account of how fanning operations were
conducted in- Switzerland, a country
very like our own. Uu prophesied
that this provinco will bu able to support a population of thirty or forty
millions a few generations bunco, and
aho called attontion to tliu market offered by tho Northwest Territory.
Thu mayor proposed tho healths of
the president lind vice-president of the
agricultural association of British Columbia, and Professor Satiud-
uiv™ Mr, Ladnor responded briefly lu
the toast, as did also Aid. T, Cunningham, who ssid he was proud to-night
to see tho agricultural sucioly iu tlio
flourishing condition that it was.
Prof. Saunders said it afforded hiin
gicat pleasure to respond to this toast
and hn was more than gratified to sec
evidences of success in every department of agriculture, and especially
horticulture, at the exhibition building**, tu-day. Ho waa often aaked,
"what do you think of British Columbia," but that was a many aided quostion, You could talk to a man for a
wholo hour about tho resources of
Britisli Columbia nnd thon morely bo
able to touch ft few. Tho showing of
cattlo at tlio buildings had pleased him
very much, thero wero oxcellent Blmrfc
horns, •) ursoys, Herefords, Durliams
liulsteitis. Tlie milking strain aud
also fur flesh forming qualities wis the
short horn. The salient point uf pro*
groiia in British Columbia is the raising
of blooded atock horses, cattlo and
poultry. To thoso great attention
should lie paid. Ho noted that in the
poultry exhibit wero absent many useful ttniius known in tho cast ua good
layers, but tho farmers here would no
doubt soon adopt them. Professor
.Summers gave a must interesting nc
count of tho riso and growth of experimental farms and said their object waa
to save tho farmer the timo and troublo
of finding out new things. Canada
was not behind any other country in
tho world in adopting thu experimental farm. Ho nlso congratulated tho
association on the fact that British Columbia waa entirely free frum the posts
wliich aiinuy tho eastern farmer such
,-i s bugs, slugs and destructive insects
lhat prey upou vegetation, iiu nd*
vised tho farmers of tho province to
turn more attention to fruit culture.
The mayor responded to "Tho Mayors und Iteovoa." Mr. Kirkland also
made a few remarks. Aid. Curtis in
replying to this toast askodProf Saunders to remind tho Hon. E. BUIto that
Jim remark about 1 Wit ish Culumhia
being a "sea of mountains," made
years ago, wiifl now nil wrong.
Mr. Ouutiiu*"ham in proposing the
toast of tho "Provincial Pruns" said
they had douo what was in their power
to furthor tho best interests of tho so*
ciety. Truo, thore had been iu ono
case a harsh, rough criticism and he
thought it too bad that aftor working
night and day they Bhould huvo theae
hard things said nbout them; lioffovor,
thero were bound to be somo imperfections nnd nil ho could say was they
had all done thoir bost nnd the best
can do no moro.
Messrs. McLagan, Vancouver World;
Bourno, Neivs-Advertiser; Col, McGregor, Truth, and Graham, of Tuk
Columbian, responded at various
lengths to tho toast.
Mr. Stramberg responded to tho toast
of "The Ladies."
Ator tho singing of "God Bave the
Queen" by tho whole company standing, the pleasant gathering broke up
about 1 n, ta.

After t> o'clock last evening the exhibition buildings, whicli had been
partially deserted for'aii hour, rapidly
filled with peoplo and by 7 o'clock tho
buildings weru us packed in at any
timo during the aftornoon. "C" Battery baud and tho Rifles' band, iu
turn, discoursed lively music which
added niucli to tliu general spirit uf the
occasion. Every visitor was delighted
with what there was to Bee, and even
to thoso who had already inspected tho
buildings aud exhibits several times
previously, tho grand success of tho
oxhibition became more apparent.
Until 10 o'clock the halls wero thronged
with an inspecting multitude and when
the closing hour arrived it was with
difficulty the building was cleared.
The illuminations throughout tho city
wero expected to draw tho crowds
away from tho building, but they had
no such effect.
TilE-A-ST HAY
of tho fair broke clear and Bright, and
lung before "Old Sol" had kindled
tho peaks of the Pitt mountains tho
streets wero fairly nlivo with people,
and by 0 o'clock tho ontiro populace
seemed to bo out doors. Tho broad
sidewnll.3 were too narrow to accomodate tho crush and thousands wero
forced to uso tho streets. Fortunatoly
the warm suu had dried up the mud
nnd tho walking even on the middle of the streets was not bad. The
lirst train from Vancouver arrived
sharp on timo and brought soveral
hundred visitors to swell the crowd
and hundreds moro arrived iu carriages and other vehicles. By 10
o'clock
Till-!   FAIIt CMODHDS
and buildings wore swarming with visitors and tho interest scorned greater
than ever. The same faces Been in
the buildings yesterday wero there
again to-day examining tlie exhibits
with undiminished in ten.t. Tho
ladies' exhibits came in for a close in*
spec " 'ii, and the awards of the judges
were scorchingly criticised. Two
ladies who seemed to bo thoroughly
posted in tho Icchu'upic uf fancy work,
and spoko of stitches and Btylus iu language unintelligible t»the uninitiated,
condemned fully i>0 per cent of tho
awards made, and certainly with somo
reason, as cuuld bo easily understood
when the perfections and defects iu
the various articlop were pointed out.

fine as anything could bu made, ■vori
coinplutoly ignored by tho judges, while
greatly inferior articles in tho samo
class were given prizes. Similar de*
cisions wero reached in the majority of
the awards. Iu consequence of this
tlioro is naturally considerable dissatis-
fttotion among the exhibitors, but what
seems strangest of nil is that several
prize winners are as muoh surprised
at their success na are the exhibitors of
the really superior articles. During
tho morning the building wai enlivened by C Battery bund and tho Rifles'
lifo and drum band, and this lino inesic
lent much animation to tho such.-.
Tho behavior bf the constables in
charge nf the fruit exhibits calls fur
severe censure. This individual was
not only rude and bullying in his conduct generally, but actually insulting
to both ladiea and gentleman. Yesterday afternoon while an invited
guest of tho city was being shown tho
ixhibits by two of our most prominent
citizens, a small sample was taken
from a cut apple to allow tho visitor
to judgo of its flavor. Tlio ovor officious constable saw the sample removed and then stopped up and informed
the party that they "wero not gentlemen," and insulted them by further
abuse. Had it not been for tho presence of ladies near at hand the constable would hnvo been heartily kicked. Lust evening a lady took a single
grapo from a broken cluster and in an
instant tho bully was at her and used
threats both cowardly and uncalled
for. Many other instances of such
behavior uio told of this fellow, nnd
tho leas the public gets of his services
in future tho more satisfaction it will
give.
IN TIIK STOCK YAlillf.
hundreds of people gathered tu inspect
tho horses and cattle, and vory favorablo wuro tho general cummonts on
them. The Jersey animals showed
were all fine, Lewis Chadsey showing
tho bust bull, aud C. G. Major tho best
cow. These attracted more attention
thun any other of the exhibits. W.
Grimmer shows somo splendid South*
downs, Cotswold nnd Shropshire
sheep, und in this division his exhibit
is thn largest nnd best. Tho heavy
draught horses nnd general purpose
horses were closely examined by several competent judges, nnd their decision was that tho class of animals exhibited wns superior throughout.
