WILL DO IT AGAIN.
London, Sept. 17.—Tho Central
News is in receipt of a lottor signed
"Jack the Rippur," wherein tho writer
promises to commit another murder
iu ubout a weok. Tho handwriting of
tho noto is tho same as thut of the
letters and postul cards received by
the Central News some timo ago, in
whiph the "Ripper" declared his intention to pursue his course until he
shonld.reach tho number of 15 victims,
aud thoro is no doubt of tho letter's
authenticity.
THE STRIKE TROUBLES,
London, Sopt. 17.—Tho troublo
which now threatens to undo the cood
work of John Burns and render futile
the mediation of Cardinal Manning,
arose.from an infraction of the agreement of the dock oompany that they
would not employ new hands in place
of their striking workmen. . Whon the
latter returned to the Royal Albert
docks yaatorday to handle freight
thoy found employed there several
hundreds of men known as*'blacklegs."
This infuriated the old men and they
immediately quit work, aud but for the
influence of John Bums there would
havo beon a riot. Immediate steps
will betaken to organize tho River-side
laborers. The dockers union already
has 18,000 members, tho lightermen s
0,000, and tho stevedores 3,600. It
is proposed to unite theso bodies and
form a genoral council, to which alt
disputes between capitil and labor
shall bo referred. To-day's troubles
at sumo of tho dock;, between the
regular workmen and tho "blacklegs,"
are not regarded as uf serious import.
Thoy aro only suoh minor disturbances
as could not but bo looked for as the
aftermath uf such a gigantic upheaval
as tho recent t-trike, ,'It would be
well* nigh impossible to bring nbuut
either a lockout or another general
striko just at pnsent. Both sides are
too eager for a period of recuperation
to indulge in an immediate renewal of
the great striko.
THE B. C. PENITENTIARY.
How llio tircnl Criminal Hepn-tltory Is
Operated-   Effect*- of Ittndneiii,
Discipline and Cleanliness.
AI1I.1 !Hnun-{fiui>nl and Courteous Ofltl-
eers. .llucti i» Inicr*---*, Aiionluli
mul Krllcrl I'poti.
A doscriptiuu of tho Provincial Bus*
tile deserves moro than the passing re-
C'igiiition all'ordeil in tbe columns of
even the best daily journals. Suoh
notico is too evanescent and too curt
for a subject which possesses many
elemouts of sad solemnity and food
for deep and sorrowful thought, in
minds that sometimes do that uncommon thing, think. But tho boat, must
bo mado of circumstances, and in con*
Hiuutniiuu ot tho subject and its varied features, tho following remarks
may not bo estimated as overdrawn.
The visitor to tho penitentiary is admitted to tho grounds through ono of
tho large gates, set liko grim portcullises in the itll palisado that encloses
the land surrounding the buildings.
The warder, on a small platform above,
raises the ponderous iron bar and
drops it again, and tho gate clashes
shut with nn ominous clang that startles tho nervoui stranger. And so,
ono is insido tho awful precincts of
"durance vile," and liberty is on the
othor sido of tho fence. Involuntarily
thero sweeps through tho mind all past
sins, like a drowning man's parting
vision, and an uncomfortable feeling
seizes ono for fear tho lynx-eyed war*
der up there, pacing back and forth
with his polished Winchester on his
shoulder, Bhould suddenly shout,
"Ahal villain! you are my prisoner;
ten years at hard labor!'1 Up the
gravelled winding walk, leading to the
groat stono building, thu stranger
paces, noting ns ho goes, on either
hand, tho slopes with vordure clad,
tho trim and gravelled walks, tho gay
parterres, the flowers in tho full flush
of new-born beauty nodding in tho
garden, and tho pretty trellis-work
arbor- all   entwined  with creeping
woodbine and lovely, trailing flower
forms.   Then ho enters the courtyard, most noble in ita dimensions,
upon which opens the main entrance
of the building and upon whieh some
of the windows of the warden's apartments look out.   In the centre of the
quadrangle is what might have boen
intended for a fountain, but is now
devoted to flower culture.   A parting
glance away up the valley of the Frasor beforo entering tbe ponitentiary,
discloses a vista of superlative loveliness.   Miles of it lie there bathed in
tho rich golden sunshine of mid-September; mountain peak and lowland
vale, forest glade and farm lea, lonely
crags and snug cottages and the noble
.river rolling   majestically on to tbe
Pacific—some little bird like an English lark goes soaring in freedom up
into the blue immensity of spice, trilling   forth   in ecstasy the sweetest
measures of unwritten music—ah!- a
convict dressed in the terrible garb of
prison life working in the field: the
shock is great, indeed—yonder goea
the very soul of liberty upward to the
sky: there, iu the dun garb uf shame,
tbe very emblem of all we pity and
feel sorrow for.   With, perchance, a
sigh, the stranger turns his full powers
of observation to the Vast, orderly, almost silent, and admirable machinery
that works within.   He is sure uf a
cordial welcome and courteous treatment from the warden or his deputy,
and having remarked tbe almost military exactitude and regularity maintained in the office, he starts off in
tow of his guide.   First comes the
surgery, a room containing a completo
assortment of drugs, artificial limbs,
and splints for all parts of the body,
and a full set of surgical instruments.
Dr. de Wolf Smith is the physician,
Crossing the hall the guards' room is
entered; a large apartment somewhat
resembling the best kind of barrack-
rooms.   A board on the wall shows a
list of the convicts, with name aud
number of cell, also a duty board for
the officers.   Two eleotrio bells, one
from the wing and the other from the
warden's office, are in this room, and
would be rung in case of trouble at
either of these points. The store room
resembles a general merchandise store,
suoh as used to figifte in the wildcat
towns of the Western Statea.   It contains everything from the proverbial
needle to the proverbial anchor.   The
tobacco supplied to the convicts was
shown the visitor, and was quite strong
enough- to introduce  itself without
help; it is of the kind known as "navy
plug," a sweet article, warranted to
kill the amateur chewer with, as tho
cubblers say, "neatness and dispatch."
One quid or plug a week is supplied to
each convict.   The boots and shoes,
clothing and other artioles manufactured by the convicts are stored here
for their use.   Two ropes pendant in
the hall are bell-ropes and are uaed to
call the convicts in; the convicts' bell
is rung five minutes to 12, noon, and
five minutes to 6 in the evening.   At
the baok of the building is the bell
whieh is rung when the convicts have
all been counted and none found wanting; until tho ringing of the bell no
guard leaves his post.   The keeper's
hall, in which the Columbus mau
and hia guide,  Mr. Archibald Molnnes,   found  the  keeper comfortably enjoying his afternoon  "forty
winks," is also used as the armory and
key room.   The rifles and other arms
are locked up in the cupboards when
not in use, and are kept scrupulously
dean.   They an Winchester pattern,
48 calibre.   In tho key cupboard all
sorts and conditions of keys were noted; from the door keys, great burly
monsters, the very antitheses of the
watch-key, down  to the flat-chested
and consumptive-looking Yale pattern
key.   An eleotrio bell from the wing
can be rung ntght or dsy by the guards
there, in case of disturbance.   Some
handcuffs and   other   governmental
jewellery cheerfully   decorated   the
wall, nut inappropriately.
Through a stout, iron-studded door
one passes to the convict quarters.
There are four tiers of cell, one above
the other, and they are built in the
centre of the building, leaving a wide
space all round. A narrow gallery,
protected by an iron railing, runs along
the front of the upper tiers of cells.
Whitewash and black paint contribute
to give an air of severity to the place,
but a perfect flood of sunshine wu
pouring through tho open strongly
barred windows* leaving no doubt as
to the perfect sanitation and health regulations. The cells are built of brick,
trimmed with massive iron where neo-
essary, and the door of eaeh cell is an
iron grating of immense strength,
further guarded by a thick iron bar
that comes down and covers the look
and koy hole, thus most effectually
precluding the faintest possibility of
tampering with it. The cells are all
numboredand the galleries lettered
A, B, C, etc. In tho large open space
ou the lloor of the wing are benches
and desks used by the convicts in
school hours, School is held every
day except Wednesday, which is, with
Sunday and Friday, a churoh day; one
hour at noon of Wednesday is devoted
to religious exercises; on Friday from
1 to 2 p.m., the bishop holds divino
service, ana on Sunday, from 8 to 10
a.m. Each cell has a gas jot, a folding canvas bed, blankets, coverlids and
a pair of slippers for use in tho cell,
ino duu tiwiiiins la an neatly hung up
during the day on a peg set in tho wall
for the purpose. The prisoners are
pormitted all kinds of "extras" if thoy
pay for them, and the good-conduct
men are allowed to read in their cells,
Iu the basement of tho main building
aro a number of colls formerly intended to be used as punishment celts, hut
now otherwise occupied. Tlie basement is fire proof ana has a cement
floor. The meat room, tho old lamp
room, the dining hall, for officers who
do not go home for meals, the kitchen
and the cells intended for female prisoners, are all in the basement. Returning to the second floor of the
main nuilding a pleasant surprise
awaits the visitor in tho two churches
whieh are situated there. The Protestant ohuroh occupies one side of the
hall and the Roman Oatholio the opposite. In the former Is a small raised
dais with a reading desk and a chair
in eaoh coruor, occupied by armed
warders when the number of the congregation warrants the precaution.
Comfortable seats fitted with book-
boards, occupy the middle of the hall,
and in a small alcove behind, sit tho
guards, keeping a Vigilant eye on the
laity assembled.    A small, but well
selected, library, in connection with
the ohurch, furnishes the prisoners
plenty of good reading. Grossing the
hall to the Oatholio ohuroh, that sanctuary will be found AM up very
tastefully; the altar, while not decorated with all the elaborate profusion
of outside churches, is very striking
and pleasing. The audienoe chamber
is similar to that of the Protestant
ohurch across the way, and like it, has
a well selected library for tbe use of
the prisoners. A large bonrd punctured with ruws of holes, in some of
whioh were pegs, is the library register, a peg representing a book out,
Tho ohurch of England serviuo is hold
on Friday. Tho deputy warden's sitting room and parlor are on the third
flour. The warden occupies the southeast wing of tho building, and up in
the top rooms of the building the
officers hud accommodation. A large
tank, on the top of tbe building supplies tho entire institution with wnter.
Euch flour, in case of fire, cau be flood*
ed, while iu ulmost every corner are
Babcuck's patent Are extinguishers.
The ethnological census of tho prisoners showed 45 whites. 30 Chinese, 12
Indians and 2 negroes, and one white
female prisoner, making a total of 90.
This is tho first female prisoner sentenced to 2 years in British Columbia.
There are 2 insane Chinese among the
prisoners and 4 sick in the hospital.
Fivo uf the prisoners are in fur life,
and there are eontenccs ranging frum
15 yoars downwards.
Our benevolent government does
not believe tn starving its priaonors, as
tho appended dietary list will show:
Breakfast: Cold meat, 4 oz., without
bone; bread (white), 13 oz.; brown
bread, 1 oz.; coffee (peas), H pints;
sugar, ^ oz.
Dinner: Meat, 7 oz., without bone;
white bread, 8 oz.; brown broad, 1 oz,;
potatoes, 16 oz.; soup, lit pints.
• Supper: Bread, 12 oz.; tea, 1  pint;
sugar, it oz.
The dietary for the aiok is equal to
that of any hospital, and comprises
every delicacy usually supplied to invalids.
Leaving the main building and crossing the yard, the tailor and shoe-making shops are reached; theso two establishments are separated by a low
partition, beside whioh, on an elevated platform, an officer keeps constant
watch, Here the prisoners uro thoroughly taught the trades by efficient
instructors. Near by is the blacksmith shop, in whioh several of the
prisoners were found resting from
their labors, which are never of a back-
breaking sort. Many branches of
Vulcan's art are taught, but tho work,
as can bo readily understood, iB not so
varied as that of an ordinary "smiddy."
The bake house, across the yard from
the blacksmith shop, has all tho ap*
purtenances for breadmaking, and is
under the superintendence of an efficient instructor. The building which
used to be known as Ihe Sappers and
Minors hospital, is now ignobly .stuffed
with bay and straw and the lowur part
utilized as a root house. On the other
side uf the yard are tho stable and
cow hi 'irq; the horses standing in the
stalls wtre large aud able looking animals and in a fine conditi 11. The
cow house has stalls for quite 1 number of cows, and iij . the loo; e-box at
the upper end, a promising calf
kicked up his hoels in j-loriou- idleness
with nothing to do but grow. Poultry
of all descriptions and in grunt numbers strutted and cackled nil around
the building. In a small building
apart from the others, some fino specimens of the pheasant family were
ihown; one of these, the golden
crested pheasant of China, iB a beautiful bird with all the brilliance and coloring of a bird of paradise. Two ar-
gus pheasants natives of the Malay
Peninsula, and two common English
pheasants, comprise the stook. The
land adjoining this house, is in a high
state of cultivation, andisset to mangold
and carrots, seme of whioh arc of ab*
normal proportions. Convicts un
leaving the penitentiary are clothed
from head to foot in good, warm olothing and are supplied with monoy
enough to pay their way to the placo
where they were sentenced; but thoy
need not return there If they don't
want to. One prisoner who wus at
work In the office of the deputy war-
don, writing and occupied with accounts, is a remarkable man, and
strikes the visitor at onee as a ■ superior being to the other inmatos of the
institution; there is a scholarly, educated and refined look about him that
peeps even through his grotesque
prison garb and makes it pitt .'ul to behold such a man in such a position.
He is "in" for fifteen yoars. The ravine beside the main building is boing
graduallyclearedandbeautified. A good
road will probably run through it in the
course of a year or so. It is an enchanting spot, but looks lonely. The
penitentiary stands un 90 acres of
ground, 40 of which are under cultivation, 75 fenced in; a number of lots
at tho west side also belong to the
penitentiary. After making the tour
of the building and grounds, one
leaves the place not without a feeling
of regret.
.Death of Mn. flhtrv.tr.
We regret to announce tin death of
Mra. Harvey, the wifo of Kr. James
Harvey, the well known storekeeper
of Nanaimo, and daughter of the late
Hon. Robt. Dunsmuir. It in remark-
■-.Mo ih-*t, 1 hough one of a very
numerous family, only »wo uf iiur
relations are at present in thi.. province.
Two of her Bisters are on tht high seas
and will learn of her death vhcu they
arrive at Quebeo, and it ia strange that
two of her sisters learned of their
father's death, whtch took place a few
months ago, at Queensto-n, when
going to England from Victoria.
Typhoid fever is the immediate cause
of the lady's death and wo regret to
say that Mr. Harvey is alao {dangerously
ill from the samo causes. Mrs. Dunsmuir and two of hor daughters are in
Switzerland ; Mrs. Snowier and Mrs.
Croft are on the Atlantic, and Mr. and
Mrs. James Dunsmuir are visiting in
North Carolina. Mr. Alex, Dunsmuir, a brother, is at present iu Victoria, and Mrs. Bryden, a sister resides at Departure Bay. Mrs. Harvey
was tho second eldest daughter of the
late Mr. Dunsmuir, and wbb a native
of Nanaimo.—Times of Monday.

WedofMUy Eveutne, .Sept. 18, 1889.
A correspondent hus asked us to
pleitso i-xplain thu following portion
of clauso threo of tho published
agreement between tho Corporation
and tho Contructor: "Tho Contractor shall bo entitle!! to receive
from the Corporation twenty-thousand dollars (620,000) of its first
mortgage fifty yenr six per cent,
gold iionds per lineal mile of the
main track of tho said railway," etc.
Our correspondent, who is n, ratepayer, adds: (,To somo of us it seems
to read as if the S.H.R.Co, claim
about §400,000 besides tho $150,000
bonus,?' The preamble to tho agreement containing tho olau.se referred
to wrill show that tho word ''Corporation" stands for the Railway Oompany, and not tho city, as our correspondent may imagine, and it is
important to bear in mind thnt the
agreement containing the clause
which our correspondent wishes explained is an agreemont between the
Southern Railway Company and the
contractor, Mr, Bennett, Tho Railway Oompany stands as a middleman, so to speak, between the city
und the contractor, and hands over
to the contractor the city's bonus of
§160,000 and also §20,000 of the
Railway Company's "first mortgage
fifty year six per cent, gold bonds
per lineal mile" of the railway. The
bonds in question, it will be seen by
reference to the act of incorporation
of the Southern Railway (provincial
statutes, sec. 17 of chap. 36, DO
Vic., 1887), the Railway Oompany
are empowered to issue, up to tho
limit of §20,000 por mile, for the
purposo of raising money to prosecute Uui building of tho road. In
other words, the Railway Oompany,
by their charter, nro authorized to
mortgage tho line of the road to the
extent of §20,000 per mile to assist
in securing the construction of the
railway, and it is these mortgage
bonds which the Oompany pays to
the contractor, in addition to the
city's bonus of §150,000. This brief
explanation, we trust, will make it
clear to our correspondent and others
that the city has nothing to do directly with the "§20,000 fifty year
six per cent, gold bonds," nnd that
the §150,000 bonus, in addition to
right-of-way, water lots, Lulu Islnnd
lands, etc., is all that tho ratepayers
have to consider at this time as the
city's contribution to tho building
of the ^Yostminster Southern Railway.

DAILY BRITISH COLUMBIAN. NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0.. SEPTEMBER 18. 1869.
Another fortnight, and exhibition
timo will be upon us. Tho royal
oity will then have un opportunity
of spreading herself and proving
whether Bhe is capable of rising to
great possibilities. In spite of tho
fad, that her citizens are a "narrow-
minded community," we are convinced that New Westminster will,
upon this occasion, somewhat surprise those whose prejudices or
wishes tench thom to affect that tho
city has no go and is incapable of
meeting an emergency. The emer-
gen -y this time will be a large one
and will call into forco overy elfort
thai can be made by one and all to
render the grout week enjoyable and
attractive to tlie numerous visitors
who will stay with us. The citizens
havo already shown a large minded
public spirit by their ready contribution-' to the fund now being raised,
as well as the subscription which
wo take a pardonablo pride in having initiated. Bnt the question of
success is not morely one of dollars
nnd cents. There nre other factors
whioh will tell forcibly. The question of diiooration should, abovo all
flings, not lie left morely to tho
committee which has charge of tlmt
item Nothing tells so much in
popular ilufiionstmtiona ns line weather and plenty of decoration. Although it is out of our power to
command tho former, we can at
leas! deserve it, nnd as to thn latter,
thore U not ono who is incapable of
adding tn that. A Hag or pieco of
rod baize nt n window will - cost
nothing or little, Wi o. atr-iot from
every window of which there floats
a rag of bunting is a sight to behold.
Thero is scarcely a reason why
overy house should not exhibit somo
sueh sign of holiday rejoicing. Anyone whose cor-'l fortune it has been
to have been present at some gala
day or carnival on the European
continent will agree that a wonderful deal of decoration can be managed with tho simplest of materials.
The use of boughs or bandies, green
leaves ond flowers, is so common and
yet so beautiful that thoro ia no
need to mention that we havo plenty
within roach of every citizen. During the Jubilee celebration in England a capital idea, and yet a simple
<Jne, was the burning of a light after
dark in every window, In a city
whoso structures are very largely
composed $f wood such a means of
illumination would be hazardous,
but New Westminster lends herself,
by reason of her lulls to the use of
the beacon firo, and a series of these
to be lighted all around at dusk
would   form   a capital idea.   The
f'recession we beliove is already out*
Ined, but perhaps room could bo
made for a number of costumed
children.    To ensure a thorough
success it is essential, too, that our
visitors should be made perfectly ut
home. Thero should bo no raising
of prices ull round (this point we
mentioned yesterday, but it cannot
be too much emphasized), and the
last aim of all should be to "make."
We would urge, also, that nowspaper
correspondents from other cities
should be given every facility for
obtaining reliable reports. Thoir
task is not by any means an ensy
one, and is often rendered as unpleasant ns thoughtless persons can
mako it. We urge, therefore, that
every encouragement should bo givon
tho outside journalists. The worst
they can do is to freely advertise
tho city. Tho lieutenant-governor
should be requested to close the
offices nnd declare tho days of tho
exhibition public holidays. This
courso was adoptod during Victoria's
gala time, and the sunte courso
should, wo think, bo pursued iu October. All doubt (if ever there was
any) is tit an ond as to the influx of
visitors, Jt will bo immense, und
with us it now rests to ensure everybody "plenty for their money," As
we before remarked, we have no
misgivings, Westminster will do
the thing in style.
NOTES AND COMMENTS.
Speaking of tho campaign of tho
Rush among the sealers, the Brooklyn 1'kujh says:—"England sees that
it amuses us whilo it doesn't hurt
her, and ns for Canada, it's of no
consequence what sho thinks."
Archdeacon Farrar'a fervid plea
for the establishment of an ordor of
mendicant monkB in the Episcopal
Ohurch in England and tho United
States meets with a very chilling
fesponse from tho church organs.
After mercilessly ridiculing the.
whole idea, tho Ohurcliman says that
oven if such nn order were desirable,
it could not be founded by a well-
paid, well-fed archdeacon,
A San Francisco newspaper thinks
that $12,000,000 is yearly "drained"
by tho Chineso through various
channels from a city of 300,000 inhabitants. It figures this way :—
There are 40,000 Ohineso in San
Francisco. These persons earn at
least §1 a day over and above their
board. That is §40,000 a day, §1,-
0-10,000 a month of 26 days, antl
over §12,000,000 a year. Most of
this money, it thinks, goes directly
or indirectly to 01nna, never to
latum.
During a recent inspection of tobacco factories in England one
maker was caught cutting up brown
paper for cigarettes, while another
was flavoring his line old Havana
cigars with a solution of licorice.
Tho smokers will get very little
sympathy from the anti-tobacconists
in this matter. Brown paper, so
far us wo know, is comparatively harmless, and licorico is
good for colds, Either is much
better than tobacco, which, according to eminent anti-tobacconists, comes from a plant profusely covered with clammy hairs,
which are Baid to absorb malarious
atmosphere, and a plant so filthy
that the only animal known to uso
it is the African rock goat. Even
tlie goat would prefer the licorice
and brown papor if it could get
them.
Edison's brother, a farmer in
Michigan, tells this story of tho
great inventor: "It would require
a vivid imagination to beat the truth
in Tom's case. He has had many
singular experiences. When a
watchman at the station in Stratford, Ontario, he was expected to
pull a button every 40 minutes
during the night to inform all parties
interested that lie wns on deck.
Before he had been in thn position
long his inventive faculties were
set to work, and he soon had the
button pulled by an electric device
as regularly as clock work. Tom
then went calmly to bod and slept
all night like a whito man. This
worked first-rate until two trains
came near colliding through his lack
of attention, a fact which caused
him to throw up his position and
return to this side of tho line."

THE  STUDY  OF   SELF.
lio Wuy to a Troiiur Valuation of Our-
nelves uud Our Attahunouta.
. It Ibu little singular that a quality which
d really cEsoutial to decency, not to auy ex*
:elluiico, Is yet one capable of producing1 a
tioteiioration of character, quito aa low in
ts dcncentas ib opposite ia lofty in altitude, Bays Harper's Bazar. For a certain
j'mount of consciousness of ourselves is
\ood and necessary, while too great an
1 mount is debasing and unworthy. With-
'*, ut u propci* pride, as it is called, where are
h-Q. "We aro almost without self-respect,
yor pride of a personal kind keeps one in
2 ho observance of those lesser duties, whicli
i-iot to observe would render one recreant
i one's own estimate,  It will allow one to
n nothing at odds with one's ideal of honor,
P honesty, of civility, of kindness, and,
.'.i-iivreiitfioita props and stays aro miss-
ig, it keeps one from much of tho evil
ibat lies in wait.  If it is not good morals in
self it enforces good manners, and leads
(0 way to good moralB by such regard of
'.io roal reason and motive of good manners
■s springs from tho Golden Rulo, if hav-
g nothing to do with tbat rulo in it-'
jf&lf.    But, indulged   boyond   a proper
r '-iiil, this characteristic Is capable of as-
finnilng a double mask, either aspect of
►J hlch is baleful. It has on tbo ono sidour-
i ig nice, nn expression of self utterly outof
•Li oportion with right and truth, whero tbo
Kiiimant galhors to himself all the wisdom
I nd virtue and admirable quality tbat there
Bu-ylib iu question, and if he does uotox-
aim: "I um Sir Oracle, and when I speak
■t, no dog bark," ho thinks it, and therefore
lava himsolf as if ho wero iufalliblo.  It is
lo this delostabio quality that pride of
\ irth and pride of monoymorgo thomselvoo.
ivoiilitlous ciroumBtauocs as both birth
il monoy aro, tho person who manifests
_ lue iu thom, and claims superiority bo-
iuso of tbem, acquires unconsciously a
iiu<-'atiness of utunuoi* that tnukoB him not
ily unbearable but laughable, the haughti-
,*iSH being only tho external manifestation
tbo undue estimate of tho facts of ouo's
idi-iilutility, and showing, on tho wholo,
ss nobility and worth than thoro might
avo been, without either high birth or
eut wealth, inasmuch as pride in ma-
'riai nnd perishable things is less to bo
■tteemod than pride in spiritual ones.  A
pn of propor pride could nevor arrogate to
self tho possession of the merest triiio
was not really his; ho would consider
us all of a pieco with any other dishou-
and he will novor drug hia name in
1,_ ..ust of assertion, Btrugglo and dissent;
it an arrogant man, assuming to bo tho
.-uolof his superiors, is never any thing
:t ii ridiculous object to those whoso finer
hsos aro not offended by hlm.
Thu othor aspect of this double mask is
i| at; presented by tbo activity of vitality
id soif-concoit. Not that tho presence of
-nityulways implies thut of an ovorwoon-
gionceit; it may be that its possessor by
neans overestimates a particle of his
wers or belongings; ho may havo all that
' which he is vain, and bo really a marvel
capacity or beauty, or whatever is the
ng most valued in his category. When
a preuchor said: "All is vanity," ho
■ant to use the literal signification of tho
ii'd*—aU i3 hollowncas; and lienco some*
nes wo attach to tho word nn Idea of
laity aud pretence, which, as the word Is
w used, is erroneous, os one is vain only
what ono actually possesses, or sincerely
Inks ho possesses, nud vanity puro and
nplo ia us much an expression of active
.crest in one's self as any thing else.
ere ia, indeed, a certain questionable
rioty of vanity which is so spurious and
plorablo as hardly to bo claimed by
tier pride or vanity, and is to bo classed
der tbo hoad of solf-rightcotiBncss; but
pt out of sight it docs no special harm to
one, nnd if It does not clog his morn!
dcavor, acts oniy as a Btimuiaut to the
isossor; always odious in tho angelic
d suporior oyes, it is only whon it bones so overtopping as to obtrude
,elf   upon    earthly    neighbors    that
becomes odious to thom; or
'Von it is founded on noxt to notli-
T  that  It  makes its victim absurd;
9 thon a form of self-conceit that Is an
-.urination iu all oyes and oars,   To tho
If-centored person tho outer unlvorac is a
no; the ego is tho only unlvorso; tlio
ft of mankind aro moro motes, or at bost
asitcs; Uo himsolf walks with his hoad
iie clouds, and bo loftily that he fails to
the pebbles on which his feet stumble,
lho party-color with which his folly has
■used hlm like Harlequin. On tbo whole,
aomo relations thoro is any bracing or
-milntiug quality in tha possession of a
tain amount of pride, yot its abuso is so
)tlng and bo eaay that one is led to
i it would bo bettor when tho good
•y gives gifts to decline that ono allo-
hor, Indulging no vanity, and running no
ger of trampliug ovor tho weak aud
-spirited. Tho safo and wiso maxim,
now thyself," whioh used to bo worked
littlo maidens on thoir book-marks, in
days of perforated paper, points out lho
to a proper valuation of ourselves nud
attainments. Possibly no ouo over
liy acquired tho knowlodgo thoroughly
iccuratcly; but ho who has endeavored

on ho writes:

: about tho mountain pass, how wide it
is, and whether wagons experienced

brand now wagon, which struck tho
ichman's eye, and ho determined to play
v iid gume to get it. Tho noxt morning the
llgrlm" saw tho ranchman very carefully

curiosity was excited, ond bis inquiries
ro answered by tho solemn assurunco

Inches too wido to got through the pass.
pilgrim was dumbfounded and in a peck
troublo. Finally his oyes rested on llio
. rattletrap of tho ranchman, which ho
iisuivd and found to be two Inches nar-
svor than his own. Ho promptly pro-
i;j a trade. The ranchman demurred.

.1 Pica tor the Visitors,
As may ho seen by un advertisement in this issue, a very sensible and
tinieiy cull is mado to lhe citizens in
rogud to providing accomodation for
the multitude of visitors sure to pour
into tho city during exhibition weok.
From oven tho lowest, tho lucrative,
point of view it will pay to cater to
the want of our visitors. It behoves our citizens to lay aaido some of
tlto customary reserve and, like tho
Greeks i.f old, throw open private
doors with truo public spirit, for tho
Bake and good name of tlio royal city.
It ia tho duly of ovory good citizen to
strive to eend theae visitors nwny after
all lho excitoment ia over, well-pleased
with thoir entertainment and treat*
ment. This is the best way to advertise the city.
Iiaii serous Blasting
Tho blasting operations nt tho park
arc attended with considerable danger
to adjacent residents, as will bo admitted when it is stated that a four*
pound rock was, yoaterday afternoon,
about 6 o'clock, hurled through the
verandah roof of Mrs. Brighouse's residenco on Royal avenuo. Tho damage
tho rrick might have dono cau ho easily
imagined. As it was, Mrs. Brighouso,
who is ill and confined to her bed,
was ao atartled that alio got up, nnd
gained no good from her fright, tu say
tho least. Mr. R. G. Ross, who lives
iu thu samo vicinity, has complained
more than once to tho authorities about
tho Imminent danger from tho heavy
Uast:-i which are set off at the park,
and it is to be hoped that something
may be dono to mitigate the danger
without delay.
In the report in this paper yesterday
of Munday night's council proceedings,
an error appeared by the omission uf
a resolution, which made it appear
that Aid. Keary objected lo a certain
pr- -pofi.il made to tho penitentiary
authorities re water works, for want
of bettor information; when it wns
another resolution altogether that Aid.
Keary objected tn, which jwas to the following effect: "That tho report uf tliu
water committee ho adopted, and that
tlio mayor bo instructed to mnko an
overdraft on the Bank of Montreal
upon torms already agreed upon by
tho water worka company." As n
matter of fact, Aid. Keary, us well as
Aid. .laqucs, spoke ill favor uf the
resolution with regard to the proposal
tu tho penitentiary authorities in the
water works matter.

On Monday night in Court House
Squaro a pile uf inflammable material,
8 loo!, in height, and consisting of
wooden boxes covered with tnr paper
ami saturated with coal oil, was sot
ablaztng, and alter the fire had obtained a good hold, Mr. H. L. Pearson, representing the A, A. Andrews
Oompany, of Winnipeg Manitoba,
turned upon it a stream from a Household Firo Extinguisher; and in
less than two minutes put out overy
vostigo of fire. Tho instrument used
is n neat-looking cylinder, nickel-plat*
ed and fitted ou top with a device for
holding the acids, which on the tilting up of tho machine, are let looae in
the water and ejected with force
enough to sond the stream 30 feet in a
tine spray. Carbonic acid gas, is, of
courso, the main ingredient of tho
substance, Tho machine ia intended
to servo in thocapacity of ornament in
the houso or oflico, and only needs tu
bo turned upside down and the tap
turned on tu mnke a vory efficient
homo fire department in itsolf. Another exhibition of tlie powers of tho
instrument will be given by Mr. Pear-
sun to-night at 7.30.

JonttB enquired if it would not ho better fur tho board to get legal advico on

and the application was refused, A re-
pm-t was presented from tho inspector,

Mr, Morris, manager uf tho gas
company, was in Vancouver yesterday
purchasing the pipe required for tho
new ;*:,;; main from the company's
works to the exhibition buildings. Tho
pipe will cost about $2,000, and is
now alt ready for shipment to tliis
city. As may ho noticed iu another
column, tenders aro called f.-i* on the
cjnstruo'.lun of the main, hut so far
none havo been received. When it is
remombured that tho distance between
tlio twu points is over a mile nud a
half, that many turns with cunseqtient
litlings havo to bo made, nnd that this
is the 18th of September, the full seriousness of tlio question appears. If
there, is going to be light at the exhi-
tion buildings it ia high timo something wero beiug dune. -Mqu are ex-,,
tremely scarce; fifty, nt least, are required un thia piece uf wurk. Tho
railway ia going to gobble up 30, as
their notice shows. It is to ho trusted
that uur citizens will not havo to turn
to themselves- and, discarding pen,
yard-sticks and compasses, assume the
pick and shovel and the monkey-
wrench, liko lho Jews of old on the
walls uf rejuvenated Jerusalem. Mr.
Morris says that tho laying uf this
main will ensure a better supply of gas
to the city ou account uf the acquisition of force necessary for the now
demand.
At latest accounts tho gas company
has decided to lay a pipo main from
Columbia st, up thnt street at the
corner of which stands the Homer
residence. This will save time, labor
and money.
A Happy Event.

suit uf grey German cloth, with bonnet
to match i sho was attended by hor
cousin, Miss Emily Grant, daughter

CORRESPONDENCE.
An strRunicnt Against Early Closing.
Editor Columbian:-- Allow mo tbe
privilege of occupying a small spaco in
your valuable paper, wliich I propose to
fill with good sense and reason, and
which every business man in the oity Is
more or less interested in, I do not propose to t-idiculo or oriticisu tbo actions of
tho council in forcing laws upon the citizens, but when it comes down to justice
they cannot but consider it an unjust action in closing hotels at the early hour of
12 o'clock on week nights, So far as the
Sunday closing is concorncd, I say it is
woll, and should bo strictly kept _ by
every hotel and saloon koeper in the oity.
What I want to get at is the closing on
week nights at 12 o'clock, the result of
whicli Ib that tho city is at a loss of hundreds of dollars,
I will relate from my own experience
an instance that occurred at my own
plaeo of business a short time ago. There
were nine men camo down from Harrisoa
Lake, lumberman, who had checks
amounting to on averago of S200, whioh
I endorsed for identification. The same
evening they" woro at my placo of business, and as it came near tho closing
timo I had to turn them out on the
street, and, unable to get inside shelter,
they hoarded the early Vancouver train.
Now those men, each of them, wore to
roturn, and beforo leaving were to purchase a suit of clothes, underclothing,
boots, and othor necessaries for the winter season; but, seeingthe way they were
used, made the necessary purchases in
Vancouver. This is not tho only case
that might be mentioned, but it is a daily
occurrence, driving those who come to
town to trade to other places, I trust
that this matter will have tho consideration of our city authorities, and I think
it would only be their duty to have this
cluuso rescinded for their own benefit
and tho citizens' at large; for it ia impossible to accommodate tho public undor
the said clause.—Yours respectfully,
R. W. McIntosh.
