HalurUar Eventai, J—e 30. 1SS8.
The tent oaterpillar has at length:
established itself in a few gardens in
Westminster. One garden on the'
orescent full of apple trees is completely stripped of leaves, the
branohes being covered with tents
full of the little rascals, and if something is not dono to prevent further
misohief Westminster in another
yeaf'wllt be entirely denuded of
fruit trees. British Columbia heretofore has been free from all such
posts, but from the unrestricted introduction of fruit trees (rom the
east we may expect to be visited
with many unwelcome visitors whioh
In our former isolated condition we
were free from. Fruit trees thus
infested should bo cut down and
burned, which would in a great
measure destroy these pests and prevent any further nuisance. If steps
are not taken at onco, noxt year will
present a barren looking spectacle in
the onco beautiful gardens of Westminster, besides the plague of having these abominable caterpillars invading our houses, as they are doing
at present in some instances.
The agony is ovor in Cowichan,
and Victoria District has returned
the " man without a record," James
Tolmie, Esq. We slated some time
ago that we were afraid political
"records" generally, and those in
British Columbia particularly, were
more likely to prove an incubus than
an advantage to their possessors, and
such appears to have been the case
in this instance. Of course other
factors have contributed to the result, probably, such as Mr. Tolmie's
personal popularity and worth, the
able and indefatigable advocacy of
the Colonist, a lively sense in some
instances, possibly, of favors
to follow, and, perhaps, an
honest commendation on the
part of many of tbe general
policy of the government. It is certainly no matter for regret that new
blood should have been introduced
into the legislature, and no one will
lament that it has chanced to be
young blood as well. It is about
time that young men of character,
ability, and laudable ambition should
come to the frout, and Mr. Tolmie's
success may encourage others to do
likewise, A good deal of fogyism
has been embodied in our legislatures in the paat and if we can replaoe the fossil article by an infusion
of fresh young blood and liberal and
advanced ideas, so much the better
for the country. Some of England's
brightest statesmen have entered
publio life at so early an age that
their youth subjected them to the
scorn of noble (1) lords and statesmen. Right nobly did thoy defend
themselves ngainst the oft-charged
"crime of being young," and nobly
and well did their subsequent illustrious careers justify the promise of
their despised, because youthful beginnings. St. Paul's advice to Timothy is apropos in this connection:
"Let no one despise thy youth, but
be thou an example," Ito. We do
not know Mr. Tolmie personally,
but we congratulate him upon hia
election, and trust that, as he has
got a clean sheet to start with and
no "record" to handicap him, he
may inscribe upon his maiden scroll
such a record as he shall have no
cause to be ashamed of when next
lie seeks the suffrages of hia fellow
citizens.      	
The publio and high school examinations in this city, which commenced on Wednesday, the 27th
inst., wero concluded on Friday, the
29th, occupying the greater portion
of three days, and the ensuing five
weeks', holiday! commenced with
thii week, Our readers' will have
seen, by the reports of the various
days' exorcises published in this
paper, that all the departments, from
the primary department to the high
■chool, exhibited gratifying indications of general prosperity and advancement, the pupils throughout
acquitting themselves with credit
both to themselves and their tench
ere, those of the high school, as has
been shown, taking tbe first place in
the province. The examination
would appear to have demonstrated,
amongst other things, that we have
a competent and painstaking corps
of teachers In such ciroumstances,
school trustees, if inspired by honest
and unselfish motives, and supported
by an intelligent and voluntarily expressed publio opinion, but not
otherwise, might, perhaps, be justified in making ohanges in the teaching staff, with the object of still further increasing its efficiency; but
great can should be exercised in
suoh matters lot the ehange result
not for the better, and also that no
injustice be done any one concerned.
Westminster has alwaysstoodhighon
the roll in matters educational, and
it is pleemng to note tbat considerable interest wu manifested by the
publle at the recent examinations,
as was shown by their attendance,
whieh was very fair throughout, considering. A little better attendance
oould have been desired from the
trustees; but trustees, it-must be remembered, have their ordinary business to attend to like other people,
■nd getting no pay, and sometimes
scant thanks, for their pains, are not
always prepared to sacrifice thcra-
ri II l^—ttl-A,mA*mM—^m**wfi—t—-,
MIIU^^ii*ytMl,_fW)n»*,HiWW«
selves for tho public good. To secure good and enthusiastic school
trustees the publio generally should
exhibit more interest iu their nomination and election, und, having
placed those properly qualified in
every respect in> these huportapt and
responsible positions/ let them have,
if possible, the confidence and sup-'
port of their constituencies. So
much is necessary, if any good is to
come from the relation. Home may
thoughtlessly exclaim, "Let the
schools run themselves; they are not
of sufficient importance to require
any special consideration." A little
reflection, however, will convince the
most obtuso how closely connected is
the subject of eduoution—especially
in bo far ns the public or common
sohools are concerned—with our
material as well as moral progress.
Leaving out of sight the important
fact that the children of to-day will
soon havo to step into all tho placos
of responsibility and trust now occupied by their seniors, ono of the first
questions asked by intending immigrants of tho better class—thoso who
would make desirable citizens—is,
what are the educational facilities 1
Are the publio schools well conducted ? The importance, thon, can be
seen of sustaining our present enviable reputation in regard to our public schools, and, if possible, increasing their efficiency.
People are beginning to inquire,
with more or less impatience, What
is being done in the matter of the
Westminster-Southern railway I Negotiations are supposed to have been
going on for some time between the
trustees of the oharter and various
Syndicates of capitalists with the object of speedily getting the road under construction, but, although a
considerable time has elapsed,
nothing satisfactory or definite can
be learned by our citizens, who are
the really interested parties in the
case, as they will have to foot the
bills, in the event of any bonuses
being given, and it is they, likewise,
who must suffer or profit according
as the bargain consummated is bad
or good. It is perfectly natural,
then, notwithstanding the fact that
the charter is in the hands of some
of our most prominent and representative citizens, who are conducting tbe negotiations, presumably, in
our interests, and without any ulterior or selfish ends, that the people
themselves should continue to take
the deepest interest in this matter,
and to manifest both anxiety and impatience as to the speedy and successful issue of pending negotiations.
More especially is the growing
anxiety and impatience excusable
when it is remembered that the
season is slipping away and nothing
is boing accomplished, the ferry
landings and approaches are allowed
to fall into dilapidation in expectation of a bridge in connection with
the railway, and there is a dangerous
possibility of rival schemes getting
under way iu advance of ours, and
materially injuring, if not superceding, the Westminster Southern railway. Westminster cannot nfford to
forego any of the advantages which
will inevitably scrue from the
speedy and successful inauguration
and subsequent completion of this
important work, end it is not to be
wondered at that her citizens are
talking of calling a publio meeting
very soon to thoroughly investigate
and fully discuss the subject in all
its bearings, A public meeting for
such a purpose would, we think, be
an excellent thing. There are several points about whioh some difference of opinion exists, more particularly in the matter of the proposed
bridge—some arguing that, unless
we can obtain the bridge immediately, we should give no pecuniary encouragement to capitalists building
the road, while others claim that we
should seoure the road in any event,
so long as it terminates opposite this
oity, and has good ferry connections.
The principle involved in both of
these viows is, we think, correct
Practically carried out, it would lead
us to use every legitimate and wise
endeavor to have the bridge incorporated as an essential condition in
any arrangement for constructing
the road, and, failing to do that, to
make the best bargain possible without the bridge at present A publio
meeting would bring out the various
views and opinions on this important question and be the means of in.
struoting those who have the matter
in hand aa to how far they would be
supported in any given direction by
the publio sentiment. Sufficient
notioe should Ik) given of suoh a
meeting, so th at our friends in the
neighboring districts, who aro equally interested with ourselves, could
be represented.

FACTS*-
Tht BecurUy offered to policy holders Is
unsurpassed by any Oompany doing business in Oanada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but ths
well-established Unas, beuoe the polioy
holders cannot be misled as to their eon-
tracts.
Ita statements to the publle can be readily understood, IU cash statement show-
lit every Item of Income and how eipcn-

t detailed raluatlon In whieh every Item
of liability le Included.
IU progress hu been unexampled In
ie history ol Insurance Ip Canada.
IU policies are indisputable after three
the hi
years, and non-torfeltanle after two years'
oilstenoe,
Ita proflta torn distributed upon an equitable Mils. The proflta to one clew of
polioy holden an not lessened to give
latter proflta to any other olass, which
method affords superior advantages over
the uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Tho huso reel races, which were ordered by tiro judges to be run over
again, wero concluded at Vancouver
this afternoon. Vanoouver were the
lirst to run, and, aa luok would have
it, made a foul whioh was claimed by
Victoria ond allowed by the judges.
Victoria then mado a trial, and were
getting on swimmingly when the same
fate that threw them out of the race
yesterday overtook them again. The
coupling of tho hose jammed and left
the race iu a half-fmiahod slate. The
judges then ordered both teams to run
again, which they did, Vanoouver coming out viotiuious. Deasy, of Victoria, won the coupling race, and the
Vancouver company won the hook and
ladder race. Opinions against the
judgments given on the reel rsces were
very numerous.

Our ingenious and esteemed correspondent from Langley Prairie sends us

Win. Murray, the proprietor of the
Travellers' Home, waa sent for to ssve
the life of a pig from a bear. Being a
good genera), he took a horse and gun,
but had no time to call his regiment to
arms, and rather thau fuce. the enemy
with groon men he chose to go single-
handed, which he did, and met and
wounded the enemy, a large bear,
weighing over GOO lbs. Hearing the
report of the gatling gun, the following
officers appeared: Sergeant Gray,
Lieut. Morrison, Corp. S. Monahon,
Regular Hughes, with tho minister of
justice, ,1. Jolly, who all worked
bravely and succeeded in sprawling
out on tha public highway for exhibition the foregoing animal, pronounced
by nearly 100 people to be the largest
bear they ever saw. The minister of
justice administered the law, and the
result wss that General Murray was
entitled to the Victoria crou in the
shape of a bounty."

On Sunday evening about 9 o'olock
it was reported in Vancouvor that a
ninn had been found ou the shore of
Coal Harbor, near the railroad track,
with his throat out. The police proceeded to the spot and found the body
indicated. It proved to be that of a
laborer named I). J. Jackson, who has
beon living in Vancouver for some
months. The throat was cut
from ear to car, the windpipe nnd jugular vein being cut through. The
deed was evidently committed for
money, ss tho pockets in the murdered
man's clothes were turned inside out
and rilled of their contents. Up till
liiHt night no cine lu Iho mnrderor had
been ascertained. An inquest will bo

This examination took place on Friday, June 28th, a.m. The children
went through their various exercises
very creditsly both to themselves and
to teacher, John A. McLean, who has
taken great pains and devoted his
whole energies to the welfare of those
under his charge At 12 o'clock school
was dismissed and all, both pupils,
patents, and friends (of whioh there
was a goodly attendance, our honorable roeve and family honoring us with
their presence), repaired to a well-
spread table, among the green bushes,
which had been provided with delicacies and sweets, which only the ladies
know so well how to provide; D. Mackenzie, P. M„ and Mn. Mackenzie,
with her usually bright and congonial
countenance, presiding. All discussed
tho good things with apparent relish,
while the friendly conversation and
jest went round merrily, tho children
boing given the seat of honor at the
table. Even the bachelors in attendance, to enjoy themselves, would cast
side glances ut the ladies, probably
wishing tbey had somebody to prepare
good things for them and cheer their
lonely firesides. At about 1 p.m. all
returned to the school house, whore
the pupils recited suitable pieces very
well indeed. Prizes were then distributed among the most deserving of
the pupils, Samuel H. Shannon receiving, Ihe roll of honor for proficiency,
George Shannon for punctuality, and
Silas W.. Bonthroyd for deportment.
Tho pupils were then congratulated by
the secretary for the progress they had
made during the past year, and parents
urged to take more interest in aud
visit tho school. of toner during the
year. All were dismissed with a wish
that the children might enjoy them-
solves during vacation. Your correspondent then wont home, while the
young people remained to enjoy themselves, in what way I can guess, aB I
saw a portion of a violin and bow protruding from a sack. All appeared
to enjoy themselves immensely, so I
would pronounce the affair an entire
success, exoept the part I did not witness and for which I will not vouch.—

Ibe Water Bapplr.
Editok Columbian. — Yonr correspondent "Hydrant" Is rather a sensible
fellow. What ho says about the necessity of getting a good supply of water for
this city is, in many respects, to the
point; but It is evident that he overdraws the picture when he states that
the want of water 'heretofore has heen
the cause of sending "some of our respected citizens to their graves." There
ia not a plane on tbe Pacific coast that Is
ao wall mpplled with good spring water
a. Westminster, and had these springs
been utilised by the municipal council as
they should, they would haye supplied
tho city for some time to come. Bad
whisky is sending more of our citizens to
their craves than bad water. Mr. "Hydrant cannot be ignorant of the fact that
there are u few individuals who are making a very good thing out ol the springs
In this city, by supply'iil water; and
just so long as tlie counoil allow a monopoly of this kind thore will be no effort
to get a universal supply of water for the
city. The citizens of Westminster are
very much Uk, other peoplo In tho world,
In this age of greed aud grab, might very
often constitutes right, This water supply has been, and no doubt will be, conducted throughout on tho principle of
monopoly. We read of "bucket shops,"
"combines," ''corners" on wheat, flour,
wool and all other necessaries of life, and
why not on water? Some sharp Yankee
or Kanuk will yet got a corner on the air
we breathe, or the sunlight may be "cor*
nered" and dealt out by inches. "God
mad, man upright bnt he has sought out
many inventions." Even Mr. "Hydrant,"
with all his plausible prepositions aud
deductions, winds np in rather an Imperious style. After exhausting every argument to Induce the city to accept the
Coquitlam Water Co's proposal, he tells
tbe corporation that the company has
power to go on and lay pipes without
the consent of anybody, charge without
limit, and ride rough-shod generally, and
that they have got the Inside track and
mean to keep tt. I wonder what Mayor
Dickinson and his gallant aldermen will
do now—they have got to face the music
at lsst. "Hydrant" tells them they must
aot "without muoh loss of time. Our
rather phlegmatio city fathen must wake
up or this "old royal oity" will soon be
inundated. Welt done, Mr. "Hydrant,"
I rather like your stylo; if you manage
to wake them up you will deserve the
thanks ol this community! but don't be
too hsrd on thorn, for they will soon
have another corporation to deal with—
the Southern railway Go. will soon be
kucoking at their door amd you must
leave a little for them.        Bcmbnir.

DAY.
■ow II was Celebrated, aad Where People Went fe Spend tbe Day.
A more miserable day than yesterday would have been impossible lo
choose for the celebration of any occasion, and particularly for Dominion
Day and the many attractions it afforded. No weather, except perhaps
a northwest blizzard, could have been
more unfavorable. Despite the disagreeable outlook and tho certainty of
rain, hundreds of people left the oity,
some on fishing expeditions, othen
picnicking whilo the large majority
wont over to Vanoouver. On Saturday nnd Sunday a largo numbor of
people left the city on different excursions and it is ostimated that fully 3C0
wont over to Vancouver by train.
Yesterday a train consisting of 11
coaches left the, station, every seat occupied by excursionists to the terminal city. The estimated number on
this train was 700, whicli, with Ihe
numbor who went ovor on Sunday,
foots up a grand total of at least 1000
citizens of Westminster who spent tho
day in our sister city of Vancouver.
THE VANCOUVER  CELEBRATION.
Shortly after daylight yesterday
morning the streets of Vancouver
began to show evidences'/.! unsual animation and long before 8 o'clook tho
whole city was ina bustle of excitement
The Victoria contingent arrived on the
Yosemite shortly after 8 o'clock and
the Princess Louise with the Nanaimo
people put in an appearance shortly
afterwards, Sevoral steamen from the
Fraser, loaded with excurionists, arrived in rapid succession ' and lastly
came the tnin from Westminster with
its 700 visitors on board. It ia estimated that fully 3500 visitors had reached
the oily before noon. The arrival of
each steamer and train found a number of the reception committee on
hand to welcome the excurionists. The
procession wss formed about 0 o'clock
and proceeded up to the station and
along the route chosen. Loading the
procession wasa carriage containing
His Wonhip Mayor Opponheiincr, His
Worship Mayor Dickinson, of this city,
Hon. John Robson and James Orr,
M. P. P. Following this were carriages containing prominent visitors
and the city aldermen. Then came
the different societies and hose reel
corps, all making asplendid appearance.
The procession was a moat creditablo
affair.
THE MATCHES.
The base ball match, Vancouver vs.
Victoria, was the fint event of the day
and proved a great surprise tothe
Islanders. Several unfortunate disputes occurred which threatened to
put an end to the game. At tbe end
of an hour and a hall's play the Oth innings waa completed und Vancouver
stood winners by 11 to 4. The play
on the part of Vancouver was excellent
and on the wholo the terminals showed in much better form than ever
before.
The Lacrosse match, Victoiia vs.
Vancouver, was the next on the programme and despite the rain and
general discomfort nearly 2000 people
ussembled to witness the gamo. From
the first it was evident Victoria would
win. They played in much better
form than their opponents and stuck
sb closely ss possible to team play,
which Vanoouver scarcely attempted.
After ovor half an houn play Victoria
secured the tint goal whieh was followed by two others in rapid succession,
thus winning the match by three
straight games. Tho play throughout
the match was good on both sidos
though a little too much body-check-
ng was indulged in for tbe dangerous
condition of the ground:
The Cricket match proved fully aa
great a surprise to Vancouver as did
the Lacrosse match. The game commenced at 1 o'eloek Vancouver tailing
the wiokets, Sinclair and Martin
bowled like fiends, knooking the
stumps all over the field, The only
stand made for Vancouver was by Ellwood who managed to score 14 rune
before his stumps fell before Sinclair's
onslaughts. When the 10th wioket
had fallen Vancouver had only got together a score of 45. Victoria then
went to bat and played a beautiful
game. Some of the scores mado were
remarkable considering tho weather
and are worthy of record. Sinclair
made 57, Martin 30, Hutchison 22,
Pooley 11 and Ward 10. At the close
of the innings tho Victorians had a
score of 176 to their credit. As the
rain wos coming down iu tnrrenls by
agreement the match was declared a
draw.
RACES AND  I1AMIS,
The sailing and rowing races attracted much attention and were closely
watched by the immense crowds who
lined the wharves. Some close and
exciting noes occured, particularly
that of Paine and Ball in the shell race.
The Indian lace was the mott exciting
of the lot. There wss seven entries
and the way the Siwsshes handled
their paddles wss something extraordinary. The Seaahell crew carried off
tho tint prize after an exciting contest.
The athletic sports resulted very favorably for Westminster. Lewis won
the 100 yard and 200 yard rsces and
also the running high jump and tuning long jump besides sevenl second
prizes in other games. T. B. Hall of
this city won second prize in the 200
yard race. Fred Turner simply
walked away from hia competitors in
the bicycle nee, outdistancing his
brother 'cyclere before the race waa
half over. The way he handled and
rode his machine was generally admired. The tug of war, Vancouver vs.
Westminster, waa won by the former,
The hose reel races came off about
0 o'clock and proved to be the most
unsatisfactory event ot the day. Vancouver was the tint to make the trial
nnd were doing splendidly when the
hose jammed bringing the reel to a
dead stop, and, as it was impouible to
make up the time lost Vancouver, was
out of the race, the judges having decided it was a fair trial. The Viotoria team were the next to enter the
contest and they came to grief also.
The couplers made a mistake in making a connection and in attempting, to
connect it was found the couplings had
jammed and would not work. Tha
Victorians wished tc have another trial
but the judges would not allow it. The
Hyacks next put in nn appearance,
looking the pink of condition. Although it waa simply a talk over for
them to win the boys went at it In
beautiful style, doing the ran in 1 min.
6 seo., haying made the connections
and disconnection as perfectly ss possible. The work was done In full compliance with the conditions of the raoe
but a protest was entered, claiming
that Kelly bad received assistance in
coupling the hose on to the hydrant.
A good deal of evidence was taken on
the protest, th, most reliable and important coming from Mr. D. McGillivray, Mr. L. A. Hamilton and Alderman Jos. Humphreys. Mr. Mc Gilli-
vray, who was the judge at tho hydrant and in the best position to see
if outeido help was given, declares that
no one outsido touched the hose. Being
one of the judges and thoroughly impartial and reliable Mr. McGillivrny's
word should have boen taken without
further testimony on the mattor. Mr.
L. A. Hamilton and Aid. Jos. Humphreys woro both near the hydrant and
positively declare no outside assistance
was rendered. It was naturally considered that Ihe word of suoh gentlemen as these would have settled the
dispute but tho judges did not or
would nut consider it satisfactory, and,
contrary to the general expectations,
allowed tho protest and ordered the
race to bo run over again. Ohief Corbett very properly declined to enter
the toam in another contest, as the
prize had been fairly won.
RECEPTION.
The large ball room in the Wilson
Block was tastefully decorated and
numerous well spread tables filled
the room. The tables were covered
with the best to bo got in the province
both aa regarded eating and drinking.
Mayor Oppenlieimer and the members
of the council hospitably entertained
the civic officials from other cilieB aud
tbe able manner in which he did the
honoiB was highly spoken of onr all
sides. Most if the visitors from Westminster returnod home last night
though a few remained in hopes of
more farorablo weather to-day, but,
unfortunately, they were disappointed,
