Westminster   Obituary.
The big Provincial Exhibition
passed off successfully notwithstanding counter attractions in Vancouver and doubtful weather.
The great wrestling match at the
exhibition grounds Wednesday afternoon drew a large crowd of people. In spite of the threatening
appearance of the weather and two
or three showers that fell during
the afternoon, tbe attendance was
good.
The Scottish games were very interesting, all the events being well
contested. The Scotch concert in
the main building was very good.
The great wrestling match on
Wednesday afternoon between
Frank Gotch. of Iowa, and Dan
McLeod, of Nanaimo, catch-as-
catch-can, for the championship of
the world, drew a large crowd to
the exhibition ground at Queen's
Park. The men were iu the,pink
of condition and gave a good exhibition of skillful wrestling. Gotch
won the match in two straight falls.
It is the opinion of many who were
in. attendance that McLeod would
win easily if the men were more
.evenly matched. Both weight and
age were in Gotch's favor.

Owes His  Life   to   a   Neighbor's
Kindness.
Mr. D. P. Daugherty, well known
throughout Mercer and Sumner
counties, W. Va., most likely owes
his life to the kindness of a neighbor. He was almost hopelessly
afflicted with diarroeha; was attended
by two physicans who gave little, if
any, relief, when a neighbor learn
ing of his serious condition, brought
him a bottle of Chamberlain's Cohc
Cholera and Diarrhcea Remedy,
which cured him in less than twenty
four hours.���For sale by F. I. MacKenzie-

THE.DREDGE.
Editor Dki,ta Timbs���Sir:
It will be a matter of interest to
your.readers,to know that it is the
intention of the.Dominion Government Engineer to send the.dredge,
King Edward, to Ladner's next
week. Soundings have been taken
and plans prepared for cutting a
channel 300 feet wide and not less
than 8 feet deep at low water.
If nothing unforeeen occurs, the
dredge will be there about the
middle of the week, and the work
will take about two months to complete.
The engineer assures me that, the
dredge is doing splendid work, and
actual measurements .show that
the dredge is averaging about 600
cubic yards per hour at a cost of
about 3 cents per yard.
,1 am, yours truly,
John Ouvkr.

WESTMINSTER FAIR.
The Provincial Exhibition at
New Westmiaster, this year, was the
largest and bast on record. In the
stock varda night have been seen
Mock ef the very beat quality. Tbe
thoroughbreds, ia our opinion, were
tee fat for milking purposes, and
mere thoroughbred stock would
have been sent from Delta if the
frizes were awarded to stock of the
dairying type of, say, Shorthorns
aad Berefords and the like heavy
breeds.
We bare here many thoroughbred Shorthorns which are utilized
fin* profitable dairying, the owners
of wbich would compete were it
not for the existing mode of judging. Shorthorns, Hcrefords etc.,
as exhibited, were the finest specimens of beef cattle and would more
properly come under the head of
fat stock. A man looking for a
profitable milk cow would certainly
overlook them.
Among the horses were some
superb specimens. Here also was
a chance to make a change in the
prize list, viz., ia the Agricultural
Class for singles (geldings or fillies)
a very fine specimen from Steveston being outclassed by mistake in
the prize list.
In the poultry division the show
was excellent.
Thc fruit department was well
represented and of a very hi^b
order.
To say that the Fair was anything bat excellent would be te
make a false statement, and the
management are to be congratulated
upon the success of another year's
Exhibition.
CHAMBERLAIN   WILLING.
Montreal, Oct. 4.-Dr. Laptborpe
Smith, who has just returned from
England, osys:
"Mr. Chamberlain is anxious
that Canada should extend an invitation to him -to speak in the
Dominion and I learned from the
most credible sources, that he
would be pleased te accept an invitation to speak in Montreal and
Toronto, as soon as possible, when
he would be prepared to give two
addresses."
CANADIAN BANK.
The contract awarded a few days
ago to the Royal Bank of Canada
for the payment of the cheques that
are to be issued to the holders of
the certificates of the army of liber-
ation.was yesterday formally signed
by Mr. J. Garcia Montes, the secretary of the treasury, on behalf of
the Government of the Republic of
Cuba, and Mr. F. J. Sherman, the
manager ofthe bank in this city.
The payments of the cheques are
to be made in Havana, Pinar del
Rio, Matanzas, Cienfuegos, Santa
Clara, Santiago de Cuba, Baracoa,
Gibara, Guantonamo and Reme-
dios by the bank's agents in those
cities. It is understood that the
distribution of the first $10,000,000
will begin on October ist, and the
cheques, pavable to bearer, being
issued ia tbe principal towns oi the
island, will be paid at one of the
above named cities nearest to tbe
point of issue.
In a few days the new branch of
the bank at Camaguey, where are
situated tbe offices and workshops
of the Cuba company, will be
opened under the management of
Mr. R. W. Forrester, who has so
ably discharged the duties of assistant manager oi the Havana and
Santiago branches of the bank.
The opening ot this branch in the
most important ofthe interior cities
of Cuba should prove a great benefit to the rapidly gi owing American population in the province of
Puerto Principe, which has had
until now absolutely no banking
facilities.
The action of the Government in
naming the Royal Bank of Canada
as its distributing agent, for the
proceeds of the $35,000,000 loan,
and entrusting it with the distribution of such a large sum, has met
with general approbation, nqt only
from the many friends of the management in this city, but from tbe
commercial element ot other cities
in Cuba where the bank is so well
and favorably known. The Post
heartily congratulates the directors
of the bank on this, their latest
success, which is undoubtedly the
result of the able and conservative
management which has directed
the affairs of this institution during
tbe five years it has been operating
in Cuba.���Havana Post.

A Remarkable  Record.
Chamberlain's Cough Remedy
has a remarkable record. It has
been in use for over thirty years,
during which time many million
bottles have been sold and used. It
has long been the standard and main
reliance in-the treatment of croup in
���thousands of homes, yet during all
'this time no case has ever been reported to the manufacturers in which
it tailed to effect a cure. When
given as soon as the child becomes
hoarse or even as soon as the croapv
cough appears, it will prevent tbe
attack. It is pleasant to take, many
children like it. It contains no
opium or other harmful substance
and may be given as confidently to
a baby as to an adult.���For sale by
F. J. MacKenzie.
Do not forget the Harvest Home
services in the Methodist Church
on the 16th 'inst. Rev. G. H.
Morden, of New Westminster, who
rendered such excellent service two
years ago, will be the preacher on
that occasion. Special thankoffer-
iags will be taken at both services
All who are not attending other

Jlgriculture.
Selling the Apple Crop.
On Sept. 2ist the farmers in the
vicinity ��f IngersdU, Ont., assem-
Med to the number of about 75 or
80 to inspect the work done by
the power spraying outfit managed
in that vicinity by the Dominion
Fruit Division. The object of the
demonstration was to show that
���praying might profitably be done
as threshing is usually done in
Western Ontario, one man taking
the contract for doing the work of
a large number of 'his neighbors.
A circuit embracing 3300 trees was
contracted for and Mr. J. C. Harris
was employed to do the work. He
(succeeded in spraying the whole,
number of trees four times with one
outfit >at a cost of something less
than .20 cents a tree. The apples
in the unsprayed orchards in that
district are so scabby as to be practically worthless. The contrast between the sprayed and unsprayed
���fruit is therefore very marked.
The audience assembled at one
o'clock at the orchard of Mr. J. C.
Norsworthy and inspected very
carefully a large number of trees,
counting and grading the apples.
Some unsprayed orchards were vis-
ited and again some sprayed orchards, until six or seven bad been
inspected. The results may be
summed up as follows. In the
spiayed orchards 90 per cent ofthe
fruit would grade No. 1, while in
the unsprayed orchards not more
than i'5 per cent would grade No.
1. iln some cases only 10 per cent
of first-class fruit was found and on
some trees it was difficult to discover a perfect apple. The cost of
spraying was about 20 cents per
tree, or 10 cents per barrel, and it is
a fair estimate to say that for every
20 cents-expendediinspraying there
was an increased value of about
$1.00.
The inspection was witnessed by
Prof. Hutt, 0. A. C, Ouelph, Mr.
G. A. Putnam, Superintendent of
Farmers' Institutes, Mr. .'P. W.
Hodgetts, Secretary Ontario-Fruit
Growers' Association, and a half
dozen correspondents of agricultural papers.
Incidentally many points in general orchard culture were taken up.
Prof. Hutt drew attention to the
fact that, even -though cultivation
and pruning were neglected in some
of "the sprayed  orchards, the trees
S. S. BOSCOWITZ WRECKED.
Word reached here Thursday
evening of the wreck on Sunday
night of the steamer Boscowitz, on
the north side of Harbledon island,
about twelve miles the other side of
Alert bay. There were over one
hundred Indians on board the vessel, who were returning to their
homes after the hop-picking season,
among whom were a large'number
of women and children. A heavy
fog hung over the water at the
time and while the boat was feeling
its way into the landing on Harbledon island they ran hard against
the rocks. An attempt was made
to release the boat, but all to no
avail, and when the tide went out
the vessel rolled'over and broke in
two. She is a total loss along with
her cargo.
A stampede occurred among the
Indians when the ship grounded,
and all was excitement. The captain and crew done all in their
power to control-the crowd and get
the women and children ashore
first, but* the terror-stricken braves
were every man for himself and
jumped from the decks'to the small
boats, which were swamped, drowning four.

���WAR-IN THE SPRING.
London, Oct. 6. ��� A -sensation
has been created here by certain
remarks concerning Anglo-Russian
relations, attributed to Sir Walter
Lawrence, private secretary to Lorti
Curzon. He was staying at ta
country bouse quite recently,' when
be electrified a dinner party by declaring tbat, 'without doubt, there
would be a war between England
and Russia next spring. 'It is not
only'his ; private opinion, hut also
that of 'Lord Kitchener and all of
his officials in India,: and he added
that many ' big guns were being
sent 1 out quietly to 'India all the
time, and *very preparation was
being made for a long campaign.

large. He pointed out that had
the season been dry 'these fine
samples could not have been obtained. Mr. Putnam spoke of'the
suecess which had attended the
operations of the fruit shippers' associations of Walkerton, Chatham
and St. Catharines, and especially
commended this system-of disposing oT their fruit.
Mr. McNeill spoke briefly on the
topic, "How to sell the apple crop."
He strongly condemned selling in
bulk. By this method the farmer
was selling a product, the quantity
of which he was not in a position
to estimate, to the buyer who had
spent years ia buying and was very
apt in estimating the quantity of
apples on a tree. He also condemned selling apples with the understanding that they be picked
and piled oc the ground until the
packers came to pack them. This
usually resulted in a loss of 50 per
cent. A much better plan fonthe
farmer was to pick, pack, grade,-
and mark his own fruit, and-then
offer it for sale. The best way was,
uudoubtedly, the formation of a cooperative selling society, which
would erect store houses and packing sheds at some central place and
have the fruit packed and graded
by men who were usedtothe work.
This method would not only effect
a gieat saving in tue quantity of
fruit to be marketed, hut by giving
a large number ot packages of one
variety and of uniform grade would
attract larger buyers and secure
better prices. With reference to
ihe crop around Ingersoll thisyear,
cision is arrived at by that association. If New Westminster wins
Vancouver will be expected to submit to the .proposals made by the
Royal City team.
Mr. McNeill said that he could, not
conscientiously urge buyers to make
an offer, inasmuch as in the unsprayed orchards there was-UmoSt:
nothing to buy. Many of the
sprayed orchards had been sold,
and no doubt with proper management the rest could be sold, though
the individual farmer was at <a disadvantage as compared with tbe
co-operative associations.
"Yes, sir," said the village
grocer, "fl take tbe big treekl.es
'to keep track of the world's affairs
and tbe big city dailies to keep
posted on what is going on in thi.
couutry."
"But don't you tike your home
paper?" asked the drummer.
,"Nope."
"But you certainly ought .to feel
interested in the locAl affairs?'
"Oh, I know everything thasgods
