THE PBOVIHCIAIi JAIIs.

There is vory much to intorest the
thoughtful person in a stroll through
the New Westminster Newgate. The
building, which is comnundingly situated on the western slope of the city,
has little the appearance of an institution so usually associated in the popular idea with gloom and forbidding
surrounding.. Thi Colombian representative had the honor of Governor
Moresby', personal guidance throughout the jail, and wu fint conducted
down into the dungeons dark, and two
in number. They are not exactly
the places a man would ohooao for
their cheerfulneu and desirability as
places in which to manufacture jokes.
They are used as punishment cells,
and two or three days in them bring,
the "hardest cases" to their senses.
The coal cellar adjoins those boudoirs
for the refractory. The laundry is
fitted with all appliances for the dissipation of dirt, such u hot and cold
wator and steam. In the wall between
the prisonen' ward and the laundry is
a little iron door, oblong in shape,
about threo inohes wide and 18 long;
it is juit wide enough to allow the
passage of the washod clothes in small
quantities, and resembles tbe sight-
slot for the pilot on an ironclad. The
soiled clothe, are dumped down a largo
aperture leading from the bath-room
overhead. The kitchen is replete with
everything necessary for the manipulation of comestibles; two large ranges
provide the motive power, and, u in
the laundry, a small orifice in the wall
communicating with the prisoners'
ward serves as the highway for the
victuals. Tho larder is a large room
stocked with all manner of groceries
and provisions. A large quantity of
roasted pea. was pointed out as coffee.
Upstairs is the bath-room, with three
tubs, in which tho prisoners are com'
pulled to wash at least once a week, or
as sssuch oftonor as ihey please; the
prisonen wash on Saturday. The lunatics, of whom there are forty-two in
tho establishment, on Friday. The
female prisoners have every accommodation of tho ume kind, and separate
quarters. The prisonen' ward consists of three tien of cells built up in
lho centre of the hall, leaving a large
■pace .11 round. A number of the lunatics woro sitting .round tho stove
enjoying tho warmth liko rational peoplo. The governor introduced aeveral
of thoso poor people to the reporter;
one of them who wu reclining oil his
bed in the cell, reading, waa pointed
out in particular u an intending caso.
He is an old Crimean soldier and waa
wounded on the top of hi. head by a
fragment of a shell. In answer to the
governor's question as to where he got
the wound the man replied, "Rooshia,"
and without further warning started
off talking at a distneting rate of
spud, lie uid he had been attacked
on the Yale road by somebody, had
been four yean in jail and had never
been brought before a magistrate. His
talk waa of tho wildest description,
nnd wu intormingled with guns and
bayonet., robben on tho Yale road,
hi. lordihip nid, "Ohargo and carry
them guns;" that he wu an English
soldier, he wanted justice, the Sepoys
killed every one of thom; and a slnnge
incoherent mixture of word, and sentences that waa interesting, but painful to listen to. Another of the lunatic demanded a olgar or tobacoo In
somo shape, and denounced the reporter for not complying with his demand. He remarked with t funny
leer, "poverty is no disgrace, but it's
mighty inconvenient, eh, mister?" He
slated his age as U and uid he waa
born in 1800, he was nther an aged
youth and looked quite 50. Just then
the priionors were let out, and one of
them, a tall, ill-favored looking young
man, with manacles on his legl oamo
olankingdown the step., supporting
the irons with a piece of string. He
had a reokless, abandoned air and
swaggered forward to the stove, u ii
he didn't care for anything or anybody;
he is the wont "oue" at prennt in
custody. The murderer of Jackson
next came down the steps, then murdering Dick and other candidate! for
the gallows. The surgery is provided
with a complete set of initrumonts for
amputation and other operation!, and
hai many of the latest Improved surgical devices. A good stook of drug!
and medicines occupied several Bhelves.
The church is next to the surgery, and
is a large apartment capable of aeating
about 80 penons. A email organ in
one corner helps out tbe singing.
Many of the citizons "drop in" to service on Sundays. A large number of
the prisoners aro employed now in
snakissg torches for the clebrution
and have already a largo quantity
roady. Tho building will bo illuminated in a very elaborate manner od
Thursday evening, and will no doubt
present a pretty appearance. The
officers' apartment, upstairs aro very
large and roomy and fitted with every
conveniotice. Governs* Moresby',
quarters occupy one wing of tbe build*
ing, and are furnished in an elegnnt
assd asimfssrtablo manner. Tho view
from tliu front windows of tlso building is Etsperb, and commands the main
part of iho Delta. The jail is built of
brick, on a strong atone foundation,
and is very substantial throughout.

Mayor Grant of Victoria has been
making funny remarks tit tho expense of Mr. Jno. Raskin, world
renowned art critic, litterateur and
some time Blade Profossor nt Oxford
University. Mr, ('rant evidently
' does not entertain u very exulted
opinion of Rusk in because "lie is a
man" (so says the mayor, nnd of
course he would never talk about
what ho did not understand) "who
objects to railways, steamboats und
other modern improvements." Mayor
Grnnt would lind it hard to prove
what ho says, however. John Ilus-
kin as an art critic, naturally, in his
writings discusses subjects from tlio
'•esthetic standpoint, and no ono can
reasonably find fault with such a
mnn for preferring the gondola to
th) steam launch on the boautiful
waterways of Venice, or blame him
when he protests against the running of a railway line into the heart
of tha English lake country, because
he believes that the preservation of
iti. i.atural beauty is a matter for
co lsideration ns well ns tho putting
of o few more shekels into the
ah eaiy well-filled money bags of
ra irnad directors. .For Mr. Grant,
as n.ayor of Victoria, wo entertain
unbounded respect, but when he
at; empts to criticize Iluskia and lets
hhnsolf down to vapid vulgarisms
ab-iut beauty unadorned, Eve in the
ga 'th n of Eden, und the era of tho
lij: leaf, wo imagine lm would act
ra'sre wisely by keeping silence for
fei r uncharitable persons, reading
hi- foolish talk, should repeat tlio
old adage that empty kettles make
thi'most noise.
Parents   should   look   into   the
literature their ehildron   indulge in,
remarks an exchange, and no exhortation can be   moro   well-timed   in
view of the voluminous, cheap   und
trashy stuff tliat  circulates   under
tho  name  of   literature  iu these
days, and which  anyone with   half
an eye can see that the rising   generation—the boys especially—are in
tho  habit  of greedily   devouring.
There cau bo no question  tbat   tho
fearful and  unnatural   increase   of
juvenile crime   which   the  public
prints record all over this continent
is almost wholly due to the distorted und perverted views of life which
the great majority of the dime novels
and tho so-called boys' papers inculcate.    Instances where causo and
ofl'.sct are clearly traceable might be
cited   by   tho  hundred, wero the
necessary trouble taken to compile
tln-m. One instance with a very sad
sequel will serve for a multitude of
others: A lad was arrested in Stratford, Ont., tho other day for stealing.   His comrade, who is supposed
to have   known of   the thefts, at
onco shot himself.     The lad, beforo   committing    suicide,    wrote
thus  to   his   parents:   "God  help
mo,    1   am    in    great    trouble.
1 am going to tako my life.   Will
is arrested and will go to penitentiary.   I was led into evil by him.
Mark my last words, which are, I
never robbed any storo.    My God,
hov; I wish .1 hud nevor seen him,
May God forgive me."  In the boy's
trunk a well-thumbed book has since
been found, called "The Life and
Times of Jesse James, tho notorious    robber  and   murderer."   Tlio
publication  praises   the  thief and
piotures him as a hero.   Thero can
be littlo doubt   that   the book, the
theft*}; the arrest of  one   boy   and
the suicide of tho other,  nro connected, and such deplorable results
muit inevitably follow in yot othor
'   eas is eo long as the vile poison of
evil uud foolish literature is permit-
tod   to do its work.   Even whero i
Derailment vioiousness und criminal- j
ity are not induced by tin's sort of
mental pabulum for tho young, com*
par iti vc imbecility, antipathy nnd
use os moss for tho real duties of lifo
are in many eases the almost equally j
do[ ior>ible  effects  from   the aamo
cau ie.    If any one wished, ho can

in our own city.   Parents cannot

mattor, and governments owo it to

condition I Was it not still more
unpatriotic for him to permit the
force to fall into such a stato 1
What is done with the million
dollars granted by parliament overy
year for tho maintenance of our
militia force 1 It is certainly not
spent upon equipment, if we are to
believe the reports of the officers of
the various districts. Sir Adolphe
cannot pretend that ho is not supplied with sufficient money to maintain his army in good condition,
becauso all the monoy ho lias ever
asked for has been freely nnd cheerfully granted by parliament. A
recent letter in tho New York
Herald on the Canadian militia,
states that the Dominion forces are
armed with tho discarded weapons
of the English militia * that the
ritlo in general uso is tho old-fashioned Snider, with n few Martinis
for prize shooting, uud that no single
corps is armed with magazine guns.
Then from thn reports furnished to
the militia department by inspecting
oflicers, some statements reflecting
seriously upon Sir Adolpho's administration are culled. Ool, Otter,
cf number two district, states that
with fow exceptions tho arms and
accoutrements in possession of tho
militiamen nro -worn out and unserviceable.' Oaptain Coogan- of
tho 21th battalion, reports that
'many oE the rifle3 in uso are un-
sorviceublo and in a high degree
dangerous to tho tircr.' Oaptain
Dosse, musketry.instructor, reports
thnt on ono occasion 'in trial aud
sighting shots somo sixty pounds
of ammunition were used, and of
these thirty wore found defectivo
and rusty.' Othor infantry officers
make similar reports. Ool. Houghton, D. A. G., of the Montreal district, reporting upon a troop of
cavalry, says: 'Some of the swords
are deeply honeycombed, having
laid for years in rust, and are not
only unserviceable but can never be
brightened again.' And it may bo
asked : What is dono with the enormous sums of money voted every
year by parliament for the maintenance of our militia force 1 How
is it frittcrod away; and how conies
it, that our citizen soldiery are not
provided with proper equipments ?"
When talking about the efficiency
of our militia force, and such stuff
as -'threatening vengeance upon the
United Statos," it should be remembered that Canada's citizen soldier
is designed for intornnl military police and defensive purposes only, and
cannot be ordered outside of tlie
country on any mission nf vengeance
or retaliation, though Uio Jingoes
howl and the Grits imagine vain
things!. A little furbishing up of
the militia and its equipment, however, would do no harm, according
to all accounts, and not u little of
the criticism of tho Free Prees would
apply to tho militia in this province.

The Ottawa Free Press (Liberal)
is agitated about the present condition as regards efficiency of tlie
Oanadian militia forces, and blames
tho Dominion government, and particularly the minister of militia, for
having allowed the forco "to fall
into such a state." Says tho Free
Press: "It ia imfortuuato that at a
time when our Oanadian jingoes are
threatening vengeance upon tho
United States, because of the illegal
seizure of British Oolumbia vessels
in Behring Sea, the American newspapers aro able to quote statements
from the last annual report of tho
Dominion minister of militia showing that Canada's volunteer militia is so badly equipped as to be
utterly useless iu case of troublo.
Wtt-i ia not most 'unpatriotic' for
Sir Adolphe Caron to publish to tho
world official reports showing tho
militia force to bo in a demoralized

Potato Oultuiu*.—Dr. Gilbert
has learned from twelve yoars experiment at Rothamsted tliat pota
toes require a due proportion of
nitrogenous and mineral food, as
has long been held by good farmers,
and that mineral manures aloue

use of burn-yard manure seems to
bo justified by the largo yield,
which i> thought to oll'sot tlio disadvantage of greater liability todisease.

Hryan 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 frotn 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,
i  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 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.

Tho exhibition buildings are receiving their finishing touches in the way

tneu have been employed during
lho last few days ai ranging
theso embellishments, und thu chango
wrought in that time has been wonder*
ful. All thu pillars and supports aro
now clad in red, whito and bluo bunting, gracefully set off with evergreens
and autumn leaves. The effect uf this
blending is extremely pretty. Around
the window frames the decorations are
continued and in every direction the
walls are festooned and draped. Everything outside tho buildings is nearly
out of tho workmen's hands, and Monday at tho latest will see tho whole
complete and in readiness. The grand

Colonial Wailing!,
Tho ColariUt has found itself mistaken in its lirst estimate of (he local
murning paper, and bemoans its disappointment in the following terms:
"Wo confess to boing disappointed in
Truth of Westminster. Wp believed
that, whatever failing*- it might have,
it would bo manly and it would be
original. But we find that it has begun to steal, and to steal, too, from
tho Times. Wo are grioved to see that
what it Iisb stulon is not worth stealing. It has stolon tho manners of tho
TiHit'.*, and committed a most con-
tomptiblo plagiarism. The Times has
copyrighted "Honest John," and
young Truth has shown itaelf so deficient in originality aa to appropriate as
its own tho nickname This is a vory
paltry theft. If Truth must havo a
nickname, if it must ba vixenish and
childish nt the same time, it surely
possesses bruins enough to invent an
offensive namo of its own. But we
thought that uur yonng contemporary
was abovo calling names. We saw
that it wiU a littlo rough on the surface, but wu funded that we discerned
a gleam of the jewel underneath. But
wu aro afraid now that it is not only
rough ou tlm surface, but coarso and
weak all through. Stealing the Times'
nicknamu and imitating its weakness
nnd childishness is n very poor sign.
The rough who rips out a big round
oalh at thu man who offends him mny
bc a good fellow at bottom, but the
loafer who vouts hia spite un tlio neighbor who is too decant to associate with
him by culling him a nickname, is
pretty certain to ho a sneak through
nnd through. Wo trust that tho 2Vut"A
will live up to its name, aud if it is
bound to bo rude and unmannerly, it
will not steal its neighbor's bad language"
The (i rn nd I'mresalnn.
