FAIIUIAVEN.
iatliuatknt)wlcd»oi.l gem of tho bay
cilios, nut that it ia tho largest, for
Whatcom outranks it in population,
but becauso it ia tho best uituatutl for
shippin-1 and commercial purpouoe- is
inhabited by a moro eriturprinhif' and
prujjrcH.-iive poople, ami lastly, but not
least, baoauso it ia tho present head-
quui t'.ni of tho Fairhaveu and Southern Jt-iHway, The situation of Fair-
liavcn is all that might bo desired for
A Imitdsomu nnd easy graded townsite.
Along tlio wulor's edgo the land is low,
but not marahy, and the plateau is
laigo enough for u city of 50,000population without utilizing tho higher
ground in tlio rear. A point of land,
immediately west of tbo city, forms a
natural breakwater for the harbor, uud
the lirst impression convoyed hy tho
prospect from thu water is that tho
nm nu whs well chosen, beiug expressive nf what in actually llie case. Fair-
bavtiu hus no mud Data, but uu tho
contrary, deep water is to ho found
anywhere within 100 feet of the shoro.
At the Fairhaveu and Southern Bail-
way Co.'s wharf tho largest vessel
afloat can He in safety. The anchorage in thu harbor is satd to be excellent—a soft bottom with aa averago
depth of from 8 to 12 fathoms. Above
the plateau on which tho city proper
is being built, tho lulls rise with a
gentle slupe, nut precipitous or broken, but an easy and pleasant grade. On
ovory sido now buildings are springing
into existence daily, uml of all tho
cities on the bay
FAIBIIAVEN IS  THE   DUSIEST
in thh lino. At least 500 men aro at
work on building operations, street
making and sidewalk laying, aud yot
thia numbor is msulliciunt to incut
the demand. Streets aro being graded
in every direction as fast us men aud
horses can do tho work, but houses
are going up ou all quarters of the
townsito in advance of Btreet improvements, for the population is increasing
so rapidly lhat houso room must be
hud uo matter how inconveniently
situated. Your commissioner ascertained tho following facts: Fuirhavon
was cuvered with a dense growth of
timber on tho 1st of January last,
when the Bennett company acquired a
portion of tho townsite, * and at that
timo only 4 houses wero erected. Up
to March ht only 2 uew buildings
were added, but sinco that dato 150
buildings, largo and small, have beon
erected and another hundred are now
being constructed. About March 1st
tho Bennett company began clearing
away the forest, and to-day 300 acres
huvo boon slashed, burned and grubbed
and aro now ready for building on.
Tbo city now boasts of a post office,
telegraph and express offices, a dozen
hotels, an equal number of stores, two
saw mills and a ship yard—and nil
these the creation of (i monthi. All
this pros portly and progress can only
be attributed to the
PAltUUVBN AND SOUTIIEHN
Railway Company, which is developing an enterprise second to no other
corporation un tho coast. Tho company owns a milo of water frontage
that is not going to rr-.main idle. Already about hulf a milo of siding has
been completed and tho railway track
is hud tho full length of tho construction. A largo wharf, Bttong enough to
bear the weight uf thousands uf tons
of steel rails, is now in uso, and tho
railway track is also extended ou to
this structure. The company owns a
saw mill at Whatcom and another at
Fairhaven, and a portable mill whioh
is in uso at tho end of the track. All
these mills aro running night and day,
cutting bridgo timbor aud ties for uso
on construction. A fourth mill is now
being built at Fairhaven by a Mr.
Heacock, who is under contract with
Mr. Bennett to cut C5-O0O feot of lumber overy 10 hours. Tho mill is to be
running in 7 days. Tho company
have now in.courso of erection a mug-
nificont hotel, whioh will cost when
finished betweon §75,000 and $100,-
000. It is to bo built of brick ami
stone, of handsome design, six stories
high and firo proof throughout. Your
commissioner walked up 12th stroet
and examined tho work eo far as it has
progressed, Tho foundation, 100x100
foot, built of stone, broad and solid, is
finished and work on tho walls has
commenced. Largo quantities of
building material are scattered about
and at least 50 men are employed ou
the work. This gives tho visitor the
impression that tho Fairhaveu company liavo faith in their oity, and soulless corporations are not addicted to
building monuments for idlo poople tu
gnxu oh, When your commissioner
landed on the Fairhavon wharf, a
little aftor G a.m., ho was surprised to
find that all was
HUSTLE AND ACTIVITY,
even at that oarly hour. A large
force of men wero employed loading
three fiat cars with bridao timber,
wliich a littlo later wero hauled to tho
cud of the track by ono of tho company's engines. Piled upon the wharf
weie immunso quantities of railroad
material, some 10.000 or more steel
rails, uud huge piles of bridge iron.
All lnr-io piucus of machinery were
mnrked "N. Bennett, Fairhaven."
The stool rails are of American manufacture and nro said to be equal to the
English make. After inspecting tho
shed*- and their contents, your commissioner chanced to meet tho company's store keeper, who supplied
some vnluablo information. Tho rolling stook of tho company at present ia
use consists of tho following: two 05
ton, 20 wheel locomotives; 13 flat curs,
8 box oars and one caboose. AU theso
nro at present in uso on construction,
but thm number will bo largoly increased when tho rolling stock, now
en route from tlio east, arrives. Tho
locomotives aro tho finest made on the
continent, and nre built on tlio English
pattern. Thoy nre also vory powerful,
being specially built for drawing heavy
trains.   The oan are m good, if not
better, than any in uau in America.
Even tho flat cam uro provided with
air brakes and Janney's patent couplers, which improvements fow of tho
best equipped roads on tho continent
can boast of. The workmanship ou
tho cars, and the general finish, is superior to anything your commissioner
had over seen before.
KAILWAY   COKHTltUOTION.
was tho next matter investigated by
your commit!!1 inner, and to attain tho
object in view another journey on*foot
was necessary. Proceeding down thu
line for *U miles tho end of the track
was reached and hero was found a
gang of GO men busily engaged at
track laying and lie placing. Tho
manner in which thu rails aru laid
dots not concern tho reader*' of these
rcBOurchos; tho facts of what haa beon
dono bcitn* required, not tliu mode df
operation, Only a limited numbor of
men can bo utilized iu track laying,
and tho foreman explained that he had
every man at his command uocesmiry
for lho rapid performance of tho work.
Tho rails aro hauled out on flat cars tu
tho end uf thu track and nre dumped
otl'j tho train then returns fur another
loud. Ties uro nlso bruught to thu
ground by train, from tho mills ut
Fairhaven and Whatcom. Track laying is proceeding at thu rate of from h
to | of a milo por day—as rapidly ub
it ean bo accomplished under tho circumstances. After viewing tbo operations for a time your commissioner returned to Fairhaveu and called ut tho
genoral offices of the company. Mr.
Bennett is at present in New Vork,
but Mr. J. J. Donovan, chief engineer
uf the company, was fuund nt his post,
although tliu hour was still early.
Your commissioner introduced himself to Mr. Donuvan and explained his
mission. Mr. Dounvtin, gave the visitor
A COKIlIAl. (iHEBlIXQ
aud then courteously intimated that all
the information ho wus in possession
of, and any required from the books of
tho company, was at the disposal of your
commissioner. This was unexpected,
but advantago wus taken of the offer.
After chatting fur a few minutes on
railway matters in general, Mr. Donovan snid: "Our lino is graded a distance of 2G miles south to Sedro, on
the Skagit rivor, where the coal mines
of the company are located. These
mines aro ver*/ rich, two large seams
having been developed, oue 14 feot in
width. No liner bituminous cual has
boen found iu Washington Territory.
Our trucklnyors are hard at work hying tho rails towards the Skagit, and
wo expect to huvo trains running to
Sedro iu less than GO duys. Wu have
500 men at work un culvert and Wid-*e
building, and these would bo further
advanced towards completion but fur
tho scarcity of timber, though we have
three mills running night and day
supplying material. Wo have experienced great difficulty in obtaining
lumber, but after next weok, when
Mr. Hencack's mill is iu operation, we
expect to have no further trouble in
that direction. Everything in connection with construction is progressing to tho satisfaction of the management of the company. As soon ab the
Uno is completed to the Skagit the valley of that river will bo tributary to
Fairhnven, which will be an immense
advantage to the business of the city.
Some time in December wo will be
marketing coal from the Sedro mines
in all the cities ou tho bay. A force
of 50 men is now at work developing
the veins, and the coal will bo ready
to mine by tho timo tracklayiug is finished to the Skagit,"
WORKING NORTH.
"Havo yuu dono anything yet as to
operations noith?" naked your commissioner,
"Wo have throe engineering paittes
at work betweon Fairhaven and the
boundary," replied Mr. Donovan, "and
tho location will be definitely settled
within a fow weeks. Wo have secured
right of way for fivo miles north of
Fnirhaven, nnd^tir agents nre at present engaged iu furthor negotiations.
The route wo will take cannot be made
publio yet, ns it would interfere with
purchases of right of wny in courso of
arrangement.
"Whon will you begin grading towards West miniiter?"
"Within two weeks wo will bo grading uorth, but only five miles of tho
liuo will be built, until lhe whole right
of wny is purchased. It is not our
policy to show our intentions beforo
hand, and wo counot tako tho chances
of paying any price demanded for
laud, which wuuld naturally bc tho
caso if our definito location was made
public. The 500 men now employed
on bridgo nnd culvort building on the
Skagit line will bo transferred to tho
northern lino iu twu weeks, aud lhc
work will be rushed as fast us possiblo
whilo tho lino weather lasts."
"Then you really menu business,
aud intend pushing operations towards
forming it junction with tho Southern
Bailway tit the boundary?"
"Tho day after Mr. Bennett nnd
Mr. Thompson returned from Westminster, after completing arrangements fur tho taumfor of the line tu
uur control, a party of engineers was
sent nortii and commenced tho work
of location, and sinco then wo havo
been working with thu strict object in
view of pushing tho road to completion
from Fuirhavon at the earliest pnsaib!o
dato. Mr. Bennett took full possession uf tho Southern Uailway on Aug.
1st, and evory thing in connection with
it is now under his control. Itis quite
probable that construction will bo finished from the Nicomekl river to the
boundary tliis fall, and wo fully expect
lo have lho whole line completed from
Fairhaven to WestminBter by May 1st,
1890."
"Is it your intention to do muoh in
tho way of improvements at Westminster!" <
"By thu terms of our agreement we^
aro bound to fulfil certain conditions'
which will necessitate the expenditure
of largo sums of money, Out how much
I nm not prepared to say. Ono thing,
however, is certain, our expenditure
will bo vastly in excess of your bonus."
"Will your equipments and improvements be mi tho Bamo scale nB at
Fairhavon, and will you commonco
operations thoro at an enrlj dato."
. "Everything wo construct will be
substantial throughout, but of the
scale on which improvements will bo
made it is a litllo too early to speak.
Tho bylaw has not carried yet; when
it doos our intentions will soon be
known. If you voto tho bonus no
time will bo lost in commencing work,
for thore is much to bo dono."
"Supposing tho bylaw does not pass,
will the work you have already done
between Fairhavon and tlio boundary
bo thrown awny."
"Not by any moans. Wo will build
into British Columbia all the Bamo,
but Westminster will not be benefitted
thereby."
"But yuu are working tho samo as
if the bylaw were already passed."
"Why," said Mr. Donovan, "you
do not infer that Westminster will reject it?"
Your commissioner ventured the
prophesy that the bylaw would carry
without trouble, especially after tho
peoplo woro made aware of what tbe
Bennett company had already douo
and what it prupused doing. Mr.
Donovan was questioned cuueorning

of Iho road would bo Portland, whilo
tho unstern 'terminus will bo somo-
wberu cuat of tho Rocky mountains.
Ho also informed your commissioner
that the lino had beon definitely located to the summit of tho Cascades,
nnd that maps of the definito location
have already beeu filed with the secretary of tho interior for a lino 80 miles
up to Skagit rivor. Ho also hinted
that tho Fairhaven and Southern Kail-
way would form a junction with tho
Manitoba road, which is now building
towards the Rockies. If this connection is made it will give Westminster
another through line to the east.
Whilo this conversation was in progress a bundle of papers wero brought
iu nnd laid on Mr. Donovan's tabic,
which ho explained wore the roports
of thu previous day's work. Your
commissioner was invited to inspect
the papers, which he did and found
them to bo roports of all tho wurk in
progress. Thinking it would be interesting, as weU as conclusive evidence
of tho operations of the company, the
following was copied from one of the
papers:

(Signed) Wm. Shields,

Your commissioner personally inspected the work al'ove* mentioned uud is therefore in u position to verify the report, whieh ia correct jn every particular. Mr. Donn-
vnn was then asked concerning tho
steel rnila ordered in England to bo
delivered at Westminster. Ho ro-
plied that he was present when Mr.
Bm.nett ordered 3000 tons of 56 pound
rails/to bo delivered in the Frasor in
February next.
"Uow does your company Btand
financially?" was tho next question
naked.
"The capital stock uf the company,"
said Mr. Donavan, "has lately been
increased from 81,000,000 to $6,000,*-
000," and then ho smiled quietly and
added, "we are not hampered in that
direction."
"It ib reported that your company
has spent nearly $2,000,000 in Fairhavon aud vicinity, ,o,n railroad construction nnd on other enterprises* is
this true?"
"Well, you are asking a question
that is bard to answer, and I oannot
give you a direct reply, but 1 will say
that wo have spent an immense amount
of money Bince the first of the year.
ou our improvemorts in Fairhaven,
the length of lin- r-raded end our expenditure for st: :k and material, aad
you will ftisil- mderstand that all
theso must have required a largo expenditure of money. I might also
add that wo pay all our accounts
monthly, on the 25th of oach month,
and no person has yet beon able to
say the Fairhaven and Southern Co.
ia slow pay."
"Besides the railway, your syndicate controls other enterprises, does it
not?"
"Yes, the syndicate coutrohi tho
Fairhavon Land Co. and tho Skagit
Conl and Transportation Co., besides
the Fairhaven and Southorn Railway.
Tho officers of theso companies are:
Nelson Bennett, president; 0. X. Lar*
rabee, vice-president; E. M. Wilson,
treasurer; E. L. Gowgill, secretary;
•f. J, Donavan, chief engineer."
1'OSITIVE ASSURANCES.
Boforo taking his leave your commissioner put a parting question to Mr.
Donavan: "Can I tell tho peoplo of
Westminster that tho road will bo
pushed to completion immediately?" To
this ho replied: "The people of Westminster will bo able to ride to Fairhavon ovor our Uno by rail very oarly
noxt summer. You can assuro them
of that." Aftor npologizing to Mr.
Donavan for occupying so muoh of his
valuable timo, and thanking him for
tho courteous reception, your comnus*
nioiK-i- withdrew, A short distanco
from tho Fairhaven and Southorn
Railway Company's oflico stands a
smnll building on whioh is painted in
largo lei-tors, "Arthur & Sherman, attorneys nt law." Thinking n legal
opinion on railway matters might uut
como amiss, your commissioner enter*
ed and introduced himself to Mr.
Sherman, who Boomed willing to speak
on tho subject introduced. Ho snid
tlie poople who hnd taken up their
rosidonco in Fnirhaven had done so
expecting that railwny construction
would bo vigorously prosoouted, and
they had not been disappointed. Tho
moment it became known that Mr.
Bennett had acquired a portion of the
townsito, with the intention of making
Fairhavon tho bnso of operations for
tho building of his railway thero was a
grand rush for the new city, and that
rush has continued evor since. Mr.
Bennett's reputation as n successful
railway builder, his thorough business
habits and romarkablo powers of per-
severance, instilled confidonco in ovoiy
ono, wilh tho roiult that Fairhaven
boomed from tho first. Certain promises wore mado by Mr. Bennett concerning what ho p'roposod doing, every
ono of which had been faithfully kopt,.
Evon tho most sanguine believers in
the ability of Mr. Bennett to koep his
promises aro surprised at the wonderful energy ho Iiiib shown in connection
with tho construction of tho railway.
Whon connection is made with West*
minster, tho Bellingham Bay oities
will then bo in direct communication
with the oast ovor tho 0. P. U„ which
is lookod upon as a most important advantage from a commercial point of
view. A direct lino to Westminster
will develop the trade between the two
cities and result advantageously to
both.   "Wo are a oity," concluded
Mr. Sherman, "of only six months'
growth, nnd you can sue foi- yourself
tho progress wo havo made. A yoar
hence Fairhaven will hnvo surpassed
all other cities on tho bay; and if you
revisit us then you will find my pro-
diction is correct." Your commissioner called on soveral other prominent
citizens, who spoke enthusiastically of
the Bennett Company and the wonder*.
ful enterprise they havo shown in nil
directions. It was impossible to find
a man who had not confidence in Mr,
Bennett, and even the people of So-
home were as extravagant in their
praise of him. "Why," said one gun-
tlomaii, "wo alt know Cantield wuuld
never build the road to Westminster,
and that was the reason his schemo
found so little support oxcopt from the
largo landholdera of Whatcom, who
wanted to boom their property. But
tho day we heard Bennett had undertaken to build tho line we knew it was
straight business this time. Bennett
is a railroad builder from tho word
'go' and you cau depend on him." In
Whatcom tho public expression was
different.' Many peoplo there still
cling to the fond hopo that Mr. Can*
field will yet surmount tho difficulties
with which he iB beset and build hia
line both south and north. Soveral of
tlio largest property owners in Whatcom ore said to bo associated with Mr.
Oanfield in his enterprise, and as it
plainly means "railroad or burst" with
them it is no wonder thoy still argue
confidence iu the Bellineham Bay
and Westminstor Bailway. Fairhaven,
it is generally admitted by all disinterested parties, is rapidly overhauling
Whatcom, and in another year will be
the larger place of tho two, therefore
the jealousy of the peoplo of lho latter
town is not to bo wondered at.
When your commissioner tumud his
back on Fairhaveu he left with the decided conviction that the Bennet Company is thoroughly sincere, and that its
intentions and agreements regarding
Westminster will be carried out to the
letter. There may bo people who will
question the truth of same of there
statements. To suoh doubters your
comtniedoner would say; Oo to Fairhaven and search for yourselves. The
distance is not great and the expense
is comparatively small. Do not condemn at random, but if you have tho
interests of Westminster at heart prove
tho truth or falsity of theso statements
before passing judgment on them.
Having accomplished all he was ablo
to do in the ahort time at his ili-.x>-*':!,
your commissioner bognu tho homeward JQurnej, upon which it, will not
bo necessnry to dwell, and arrived
that evening nt the outskirts of Blaine.
Having returned the saddlo mul bridle
to tho owner, the Southern tramp,
diu-ty nnd sun browned, led his somewhat Bubdued steed by a short ropo
through the one principal etrcot of
Blaine, much to the amusement of the
inhabitants in general. Anchoring at
tho St. Leonard s for tho night, tha final
stage of the homeward journey was
commenced r.axt (Friday) morning,
and Westminster was reached, all well,
at noon

On Saturday, the third day of the
convention, work commenced with devotional exercises, Rev. E. T. Clapp

dangers that threaten the church; and
what tho Y. M. 0. A. can do to counteract them.1 At 11:50 lunch was
served in WiUon Hnll, to which the
delegates adjourned and enjuyed a
most sumptuous repast, provided by
tho ladies of several of the churches,
St. James, tho First Presbyterian and
St' Andrew's. The occasion was takon
advantage of by Messrs, Henderson,
Victoria; Rev. Mr. Olapp, of Port*

Falls; Bain, Portland; Rev. E. Robson and others to make short addrets-
os of congratulation, eto. Mr, Georgo
Carter announced that 119 delegates
wero present and 92,700 had been
raised. Tho rest of the nfteruonn's
programme commenced with devotional exercises and was followed by
the reading of several interesting papors. A large company assembled in
tho Imperial Opera House for the
ovening session of the couvention, Tho
services woro opened at 7 o'olook by a
song sorvico, conducted by Prof. R. K.
Warten, of Portland, followed by a
brief address and devotional services,
led by J, F, Bctts, of Vancouver.
Mr. N. H, Jaoks then showed a number of views of loading Association
buildings and workers throughout the
oountry, Theso wore shown by means
of a stereopticon, and centered a great
deal of interest upon the work being
dono in thenc magnificent buildings.
Mr. H. E. Brown, of Now York, thon
addressed the couvention upon the
subject of "Tho field work nnd agencies of the Young Mon's Christian Associations." Mr. Mnsnn spoko upon
"Vancouver's new Association build*
ing. Whon and how to build it." Mr.
Mason presented the needs of a now
and larger building for Vancouver's
young mon, aud stated that it was de-
aired to secure funds to put in the
basement, which would coat the sum
of 85,500. Subscriptions wero announced, togothor with pledges on
cards, amounting to $4,800, which
gives a great impetus to tho building

Tho conclusion of our commissioner's report on the Southern Railway
route and the progress of tlio work,
which wo publish to-day, will bo
read with an intorest exceeding ovon
the former part. On one point, at
least, the reader who has carefully
perused the wholo narrative of fact
will find himself convinced, and that
is that the Fairhaveu <fc Southern
Railway is in good and competent
hands. Of Mr. Kelson Bennett's
solid financial standing mid good
faith the report furnishes, to sny
the least, strong presumptive evidence. Tho mere faet of what has
been accomplished, and is yet beiug
done, at Fairhavon, the Company's
headquarters, constitutes substantial
and indisputable proof that tho Bennett Company is built upon bed
rock and that it is ablo, at any rate,
to carry out its intentions. Practically unlimited capital would seem
to be at the disposal of Mr. Bennett,
the head of the enterprise, and wo
are very much mistaken if Fairhaven, the chosen centre of his operations, with its splendid situation
and natural advantages, does not
prove a second Vancouver, in tho
rapidity and solidity of its growth.
The 875,000 stone and brick hotel
in course of construction, mentioned
by our commissioner (a copy of the
elevations of which may be seen nt
this oflico), is an earnest of tho future city tliat the backing and enterprise of tlie Bennett Company
will cause to spring into existence
at Ftiiriiavon. It will bo worth
while for "Westminster to be con
nee ted with even such u centro as
that ■ but doos anyone supposo that
Fairhaven will bo Ion-,' without connection with overy road on tho continent? Wo venture to say not,
(Parenthetically, we would state
here that our commissioner brought
with him, as well as tlie sketches of
the Fairhaven Hotel referred to
above, a copy of a railway chart,
showing tho exact progress und condition of the railway south of Fairhavon und also tho lines of llio projected connections with transcontinental roads, wjiichnray l-feliisp'-cted
. at thia office). It will bo patent to
everyone, wo think, after perusing
our commissioner's report, that
Westminster need not have tho
Slightest apprehension about speedy
connection with American, transcontinental railways if it throws in its
lot with the Fairhaven and Southern,
and thia is the principal and, perhaps, most important fact that will
bo deduced from our commissioner's
report, besides tho geneml testimony
to Mr. Nelson Bennett's undoubtedly
solid financial standing nnd uniiu-
poachable good faith.
man" will commit himself 'to this
opinion, but it is difficult to find any
largo body of physicians who seem
willing to countenance vegotarianism
out and out, In largu cities, where
competition is keen and the buttle
of life is mndo more severo by small
or uncertain wages, and tho false
ideas about "keeping up appearances," vegetarianism is being received us tho gospel of cheap living,
by thoso who huvo to cut aud contrive how to exist at ull. To this
largo class it appeals with a force
which is tlie more powerful as the
purso strings arts drawn tighter.
How the poor live is ono of the groat
problems of evory thickly populated
community, and becauso "necessity
is the mother of invention," any now
idea thut promises to cheapen tho
cost of living is certain ut least of u
patient and hopeful reception.
Vegetarianism is gradually but
surely becoming recognized as something moro than a moro craze,
ttud to-day numbers in its
ranks many men of eminence
either as total or partial believers in the crusade against flesh
meat for human food, Tho contention of the vegetarians is that as
hard and as good work can be done
upon a vegetable diet as upon flesh
meat; that their principles aro more
conducive to health and that tho
cost of living is reduced by one-hnlf
or.more, by a systematic vegetable
diet. Tho latter argument does not
appear to bo much disputed, nnd if
tho romaining benefits attributed to
Vegetarian ism can be substantiated,
tho food reformers will havo made a
great, point. Pitman, tlie inventor
of phonography- is a very old man,
uml oi:- who in spite of his years
works t.-u hours daily, Parnell, tho
Irish leader, is ready at a moment's
notice to keep the British house of
common's going nil night (no easy
task), whilst Howard Reynolds, the
renownud cornet soloist, is also a
busy man. These three arc believers in vegetarianism and practice
its principle*, so that nt tho first
blush there Rooms reason in the contention of the food reformers.
Whether good heavy manual labor
cun bo maintained upon a purely
vegetable diet is, however, a different mattor. Dr. Allison (no moan
authority) says that it can, but, of
cour.-e, his vegetarianism includes
tho uso of milk, cheeso, butter and
eggs. As far as we' can understand,
vegetarians, one and all protest
against   tliu   using of tobacco and
■ fermented liquor (why, it is difficult
to comprehend, these articles certainly being flesh meat in no senso).
Onu great roaeon, perhaps, for tho
favor with which the theory is being
- recoived io to bo found in tho fact
that tho reformers havo succeeded
in bringing the cooking of vegetables
to a highor standard, In fact, some
of thoir dishes are so concocted nnd
manipulated- that they wilt pass
fairly well with tho unoducatcd
palato for highly seasoned flesh of
somo description. Indeed, tlio perfection of their cooking lins in a
great measure beon their groat claim
to attention. Whatever may be
thought of tho extreme idea, little
doubt appears to exist in the minds
of those able to judgo, that flesh
meat enters too largely into the
dietary of tho averago man. Evory

Aobtbo Acid in Surgery.—A

claims that acetic acid is ns effective
an antiseptic as carbolic acid, and is
to bo perferred on accouut of its

Tho abundance of remains of the
mammoth in Siberia is almost incredible. Middendorff reckoned
that at least 100 pairs of tusks had
beon put upon the markot yonrly
during tho last two centuries, and
from personal observation Norden-
skjold is inclined to regard this estimate as too small. It thus appears
that in the recent modern trado
useful tusks of more than 20,000 of
theso animals of past ages have been
collected,
UNWATEREb Sand.—About a fifth
of the globe's land surface, according to Prof. Looniis, has an annual
rinnfall of less than ten inches, and
a considerable largor part has too
littlo water for agricultural purposes
except in the limited districts whore
irrigation is practicable. In North
America uu almost rainless region
exists in Southern California und
Arizona; and a largo area about
Slavo Lake has only ten inches of
rain yearly.
Marine Engines.—The City of
Home's engines havo six cylinders,
throe of moro than seven feot in

horse-power. The Eturia and Umbria each have throo cylinders—two
of nine feot and one of six feet—
and develop 14,321 horsepower.
The Oity of New York and tho Oity
of Paris each have triple expansion
engines of 20,000 horse-power, The
vessels of the Italian navy havo on-
ginas of 18,000 horse power, aud
two have engines nf 19,500 horsepower. The most wonderful engines
yet dosigned, however, aro those of
the Sunlonin, with twelve main
cylinders, to develop 22,800 horsepower.
Agriouwubal Science in Germany.—Thoro are 62 experiment

accounts it appears, according to
Prof. AV. O. Atwater, that 27 German stations exercise control ofconi-
merdiul fertilizers, 29 of feeding-
stuffs, and 30 of seeds,' by examination of wares in the interest of the
purchaser; this, however, in most
cases, being only part of the work
done. Somo stations follow u num-

of tbo Animal's Agility.
' "I've aeon it disputed in tho papers thai
a wild-cat, or catamount, oan mike a lea j; of
,'tweiuy-iivofeot," aaid a resident of'SulU-
:■ --an county to a New York Sun roporter,
I -'and [ would like to mention what I saw it
J wild-rat do onco. 1 was trout fishing on
l ono of the uppor tributaries of tho Boavcr-
£' Kill, nud had olambored down into a deep
^yavino to got at a tempting pool at tho foot
of a full, whero I was suro my casts would
bo rewarded by tho killing of somo big
trout.   I was uot mistaken as to that.  1
had landed four trout, tho stuallcBt one
eighteen inches long, and sat down to -i*CBt
tho pool.' Both sides of tho ravhio woro
perpendioular  walU   of  rock, probably
twenty-fivo feet high. Tho summit of tho
.vail on tho sido of the oreek opposito to mo
sloped back gradually from its edge for
several foot to a heavy growth of pino,
"As I was sitting at tho bottom of tho
ravino I happened to glance up to tho top of
tho rocks opposito mo, and saw a lies
pheasant accompanied by her newly hatched
brood come out of tho pines and scratch and
peck hor way along tho sloping open space,
(hunting food for her young, whichclus-
torcd closely about hor. Tho pheasant
camo closo to tho edge of the precipice, and
it seemed to me that she was placing her
, brood in a most dangerous position, when
she turned os if to walk baok with them to
the pines, Tho instant sho turned some-
thing liko a shadow flitted aorosB the top of
tho ravino, and half a second later I saw an
enormous wild-cat clinging to tho edge of
tho opposito wall by his foro feot, holding
iho pheasant between hisja-vs. The wildcat struggled for a moment to drag himself
from tho edgo of tho abyss to a suro footing on tho top of tho rocks, but his effort
was in vain, and ho came crashing down
tho faco of tho precipice, still holding the
'uckless pheasant in his jaws, He fell
-} with a splash in tbo water, and lay motion-
ess nt the edge of the pool.
"I supposo that the animal had been
•vatoliing the pheasant from tho bushes on
*op of tho rocks opposito whoro the bird had
appeared with her brood, and at his opportunity had leaped across to soiza her,
but had misjudged tho distanco and fallen
hoi't, with tho result so fatal to him.
'Tha whirl of tho water brought tho wild-
ait around lu a short timo to tho sido whore
i was standing, and as I was bonding down
:o examine him I saw a man with * gun
scrambling down tho rocks. Tho man soon
-cached my side, and I then learned that hn
tad shot tho wild-cat as the animal was fly-
ng across tho chasm upon Mb prey. Suro
-noiigh, just at the base of the animal':'.
Strain was tho hole mado by tho riflo ball,

'allowed him with tho bullet. It wer.
Ghat which had stopped tho auiraal shovt in
;ho tremendous loap It had calculated on or
c would liavo cleored the space with safety
,nd doubtless with case. The wild-cat war.
n reality almoat in his death throes
.vhcu he struck the pheasant, which he
piling to with tho clutch of death, and still
ie)d in hts mouth whon we dragged him
tut of tho water. We measured tbe width
,if the chasm across whioh tho wild-cat had
nmlo' his death leap. Tho measurement
tbs forty-three feet.

Tin* Icarus for WcfittiiliiHt'-i-.
Tho city clork has received a communication from Admiral Honoage,
commanding tho North Pacific fleet,
intimating that ho will probably order
H. M. S. Icarus to Westminster, to
remain in port during the progress of
the exhibition. The presence of the
lcarca and her brave sailors will lend
an additional interest to exhibition
affairs, and her assistance on tho night
of tho illumination, with the electric
search lights, will be much appreciated.
Tlio oitifiona uf Westminstor will heartily welcome both oflicers and men, and
it is safe to predict that when tho vesael leaves port overy man aboard will
cany away only pleasant recollections
of the royal city and ita people. The
management of tho exhibition aud
celebration might iaaue * paases to
the crew of the Icarus, entitling thom
to free admittance to tho grounds and
agricultural buildings.
Defeated, Nol Vanquished.
When the 8 o'clock train steamed in
i Saturday night with the Hyack lire
toam aboard, tbo band struck up a
brazen note of welcome. Thero was a
tumult of hand shakes and "how de
do" and tho boys woro accorded a
warm aud hearty reception. Chief
Ackerman was present and headed tho
party to tho Hyack Hall, tho baud
leading tho processiou. Tho chief
mado a short speech of welcome to the
team and complimented them ou
tlio manner in which thoy had upheld
the honor uf Westminster abroad.
Theso remarks woro received with applause, and the boya wore then taken
puaaossion of and marched oil' home.
Westminister though defeated iu thu
tournament, waa far from losing glory.
Tho difference botween her time and
tho bost mado in tlto contests was only
lia!f-a-ieeuiid—scarcely appreciable
without a stop-watch—and that against
tho best professional tennis. The first
day she was the lowest in tho pool;
tho second day hor good qualities gavo
her third place. Defeated not vanquished, is the lot of tbo team to-day. The
Hyacks did honor both to themselves
nnd fo Westmintor, and they return
home moro appreciated than ever by
the peoplo of tho royal city.
Ttie Kin Ml re I show.
The opera houao was crowded to
pretty nearly its capacitiy on Saturday
night. The gods woro in particularly
strong forco, and numbers failed to
gain admittance to the "heaven" a
lun» time before the curtain went up.
The performance wns fairly good, tho
antics of the end mon largely saving
the whole. Tho "gaga" wero all hoaty
habitues of tho stage of long ago.
The music was moro often appalling
than pleasing. Tho rendition of the
"Old Kentucky Home'' was simply
ntrucious, and amounted tu tho band
trying to drown tho singers, and the
singers trying to swamp the band, und
the result waa n draw. The trombone
solo wna had and thu selection by tbo
orchestra was worse. Tlio eolo singing, especially by O. T. Jackson, was
good and received encores. Tiie comical businesa was wholly sustained by
H. llamdon- whoso caricatures of the
different nationalities sont tbo audience into roars of laughter. Tho performance cloaed with an after piece entitled, "Tho Senambuliat," whatever
that is; it turned out to bo a vory
badly executed plagiarism on a capital
farco known as "The Asylum," n great
favorite with eastern audiences; tho
act -rs in this inatanco did not seem to
know their linos well, and thero was a
stillness and awkwardness about it
that made ono fear a hitch eveiy minuto. Financially tho entertainment
was a success.     _

U, W. Una ure,
Mr, G. V ttasuro returned from
SemilUameeu last Saturday evening.
This morning Mr. Rasuro called at Tub
Columbian oilice and gave an account
of hia journey. Ho brought down a
baud of about GO horses nud sold 46
along tho road, the speculation turning
out to hia satisfaction. Tho claim
which he is about to begin operation
upon is on tho south fork of tho Simil*
kamnou river, seven milea ubove the
mouth. It is a hydraulic mine and aa
it hn 1003 inches of water thoro will
bo no '.rouble nn to tho washing part
of tho work. Mr. Risnro took from a
small bag a number of nuggots weighing from g8 to 815 each; they aro line
specimens nud woro all found tho samo
day and in the samo locality, in pros*
putting, Nino mou aro at work putting in ditches, etc. Thero aro from
3 to 25 cents in every pan of dirt taken
out. Mr. Rasure is on tho way to
Viotoria to purchase tho necessary
hydraulic machinery, and will begin
operations about the 15th of next
month. He estimates that tho mine
will ahow $10 por man por day. The
Mainland Mining Co., of Granite, has
struck a new pay-streak, and is averaging 812 per man per day. In consequence of this another rush to tho
Granite creek has begun, und tiio
stream will again bc pretty thoroughly
prospected. Many think Granite
creek will yet pan out noli.

will probably be favorablo to the republicans, and in tho remaining 3!) the opposition candidates are likely tohu successful. This estimate is made by republicans themselves. Tho republicans also
rely upon their ability to secure tan colonial scats, and thus hold 354 seats in the

GLADSTONE WILL COUNTER.
London, Sept. 20.—A gentleman
whojc relations with Mr. Gladstone
nre of tho closest aud who is at present
visiting hint tit Hawarden, writes from
horo to-day to say that Mr. Gladstone
is determined to oiler ut the coming
session of parliament the moat uncompromising opposition to tho schemo
of denominational education for Ireland outlined by Mr. Balfour in tho
closing hours of last session and generally known us tho Irish University
proposal. While prepared to oppose
any measure of this sort, Mr. Gladstone doe-i not expect to precipitate
a rupturo with the nationalists. These,
hois satisfied, will bu anything but
united in thoir BUpport of Mr. Balfour's sehome, and wbatovar differences may develop on this subject
it is certain tbat the interests of the
great hulk of the liberal party and
thoao of tlio Irish home rulers aro tun
closely idontifled to admit of any Bori-
oub quarrel. Before leaving England on his trip to Paris, recently,
Mr,  Gladstone held  a long inter
view with Mr. Parnell, in which the
relations betweon the liberals and the
homo rulers wore discussed, in tho
course of which the Catholic university
measure received its share of attention.
Tho two statesmen parted tho best of
frienda, and with a thorough understanding on all subjects concerning
whieh differences might have been expected to arise. The correspondent
at Hawarden ridicules the suggestion
that the Parnellitos will support Lord
Salisbury's government, or that any
understanding whatever exists betweon
Mr. Parnell and Mr. Balfuur.

A Critic i'rlllclHCil.
Editor Columbian—Si tv—W ill you
kindly insert thoae fow lines iu your paper in answer to thu virulent criticism
inserted by tho reporter of tho papor miscalled Truth on tho concert given by tho
Presbyterian choir on Friday evening.
He prides himself upon being a first-class
musical critic, and tho performers cannot
but feel highly honored by his "fearless,
impartial criticism" upon their humble
efforts. They would fool still moro indebted if he could possibly devote a few
minutes of his valuable timo to giving a
few private lessons to those ao sadly deficient in musical ability, or offer a few
hints upon swimming, that tho poor men
may not again bo In danger of being
drowned by tho torrents of tho troh-
bios. A fow lessons alao would bo acceptable in manipulation and the management of tho olbowBj tho roporter having lived In London, England, la doubt*
lees welt acquainted with the art of
elbowing and "digital dexterity," though
ho is so deficient in handling the subject
lie Is trying to criticise. It la quito evident he" haa been tho victim of "sharps"
and suffered the usual fate of a "fiat,"
honoo the "dull, heavy, perfectly expressionless" feeling produced. Aa a rule, tt
takes two "sharps" to make a "flat,"
nnd in thla case the rule has held good
again, tho roporter being once more the
viotlm. The reporter's "forto" is co'r-
tainly not musical criticism, and ho
should look to his laurels before ho again
presumes to offer uncalled for insolence
to ladles and gentlemen, as It Ib just possiblo he may find tho noxt concert
changed, uot Iuto a "son Jacon social,"
hut to a performance "sr.n ctremonic,"
