Some Rambling Notes on the Works of Art Exhibited There - i Part - in"; Cheer. THIKD DAY. Mew Westminster, Oct. 4. Splendid weather again favored the exhibition on the third and closing day. The morning trains brought iu additional visitors, and the crush in the streets and elsewhere was increased. No description of the British Columbia Provincial Exhibition of 188!) would be complete without a notice of the exhibits in paintings and the kindred arts. It would uot, of course, be expected, in a province whose development is so recent, that the art classes would lie largely tilled. But really, considering all tilings, the entries in these classes are numerous, and of such excellence as to lend to the fair one of its most charming features. There are iu all 1 1 1 exhibits, and nearly every article shown is the work of local artists, that is, people who are living iu the cities and towns of the Province. .Some of the productions, of course, are crude, the work of tyros in the art, but, let it be marked, there are some that would not do discredit to the walls of an R. 0. A. exhibition, and still more that promise much from the future brushes of these same artists. The wonder is not that there are so many poor pictures at an exhibition such as this is, but that there are so many good ones. The art contributions, for the greater part, were hutig from floor to ceiling between the windows on the eastern and northern walls of the second floor of the main building. It was a poor light in which they were seen, ami the crowding also of other exhibits close upon them was not calculated to improve the conditions. In the northeast corner was a collection of oils, water colors and crayon portraits, the work of Miss Linnie Lewis, of New Westminister. Miss Lewis gained Iter training in the eastern cities of the United states, and is now engaged in teaching a class of pupils in the Koyal City, and in making crayon portraits from photographs. In this latter work she must be highly successful, if the samples placed on exhibition are any criterion of the general excellence of her wort. The likenesses arc very tine, the shading elaborate and clever, and the general finish of the work exceptionally good. It is uot possible to make a striking picture where features lack strength, but Miss Lewis' are every one of them pleasingly and faithfully portrayed. Perhaps the most meritorious picture iu this artist's collection is a representation of still life in oil colors, for which, we observe, the judges have awarded her the first premium. It is the represeutatiou of a pottery bowl and bronze vase with a back - ground of cardinal hatigiugs. The detail h worked out with rare delicacy and truthfulness, and its perfections are the more apparent the closer the work is studied. Miss Lewis has also a happy turn for the painting of (lowers from nature. A cluster of pelogoniuuis in water - colors has been decorated with, a red ticket which it is richly deserving of. There is also a spray of full - blown moss roses and buds, done by a pupil ef Miss Lewis', which was well worthy of a premium. A uretty thing in water colors is a half dozen yellow bananas and Italian wine bottle, with a back ground of cardinal draperies. This also, with another one iu the same class, tikes a first premium. Besides all these, there are a cop pie of plush panels, upon one of them being painted the Virginia creeper in sere leaf, and on the other an orange branch clustered with fruit, foliane and blossoms, producing altogether a brilliant effect. In all, Miss Lewis carries off rive tirst premiums, allot which she has well earned by clever and conscientious work. Miss N. Withrow, of New Westminster, contributes a picture which many visitors to the fair have pronounced the most perfect work of art on view. It is a crayon portrait of Cardinal Newman. The old prelate, with his strongly marked features, singularly impressive pose and robes of otlice, presents a maguilicent subject for portraiture. It is such a combination of features, contour and expression as portrait painters pray for, and Miss Withrow has uiade a living, speaking picture. Many of the admirers of this truly great man, stood before this portrait to - day and yesterday, studying those noble lineaments and mingling their praise of the man with their admiration of the artist's skill. Miss Withrow also showed some landscapes in oil, bnt in these her si. ill in drawing is weighed down by crudities iu coloring, which time and experience must be allowed to correct. Miss J. E. Mcyuarrie, of this city also, has Seen aw arded the leading premium for the best collection of oil paintings. Her claims to that distinction rest principally upon two pictures, one a representation of still life, the other a portrait which might perhaps more properly be denominated a study. Outside of this the dozen or more bits of canvas she shows are given the preference, it is to be presumed, on account of their being sketches from nature, for none of them can be considered equal to a couple of paintings by Mrs. E. J. Miller, oraaother, by Mrs. T. 11. Pearson, but these are said to be copies of the work of other artists. The still life painting shown by Miss Me - Quarrie, the writer was informed, received a tirst premium iu its class when exhibited in London at the Colonies Exposition some years ago. A number of school books, a slate, ink bottle and pen are laid carelessly upon a table, and hanging from a peg in the wall directly above them is a school boy's leather bag. It is a good subject aud is cleverly treated by the artist on a canvas probably 8x15 inches. But the portrait or study alluded to above may be regarded as a better sample of what the brush of this artist is capable of producing. It is the representation of aworkingmau, iu a sitting posture, with the elbow of the right arm supported on the knee, while the right hand holds a short and well - seasoned clay pipe between the closed lips. The eyes are wide open and gazing into space, the expression of a man iu a "brown study. " It is undoubtedly a fine picture, far and away ahead of anything else of the kind shown at the fair. The infusion of a warmer color into the face might reuder the picture a more pleasing one, but is could scarcely add to its artistic perfections. Another oil portrait by this artist is that of a young girl playing the violin. It has something of merit in it, and is said to be a good likeness. Reference has already been made incidentally to a couple of oil paintings by Mrs. E. J. Miller. She is a resident of the Capital City, and contributes quite a large number of entries, most of them, however, being hung up for exhibition purposes only. Mrs, Miller is a teacher of painting and m this avocation has met with a good deal of success. Two copies that she has made, one that of a landscape seen through the trunks and tangled branches of a cluster of beech trees in the foreground, and the other that of a country road Hanked by densely foliaged threes and leading backward to a grain field in the middle distance, with a rich sunset glow iu the rear. Both are good, the latter particularly. In the opinion of many they are the best landscapes iu the lot. Mrs. Annie Webster contributes a mo?t attractive bit.! of decorative painting. It is a mirror frame. The dowers surrounding it are the blue or purple, yellow aud white rush flags, aud these contrasted with the graceful deep - green rush leaves produce a.'t effect that may best be descrilwd as elegant. Miss W'ebster also shows some china painting which is equal to anything of its kind that we have seen. A couple of plaques and some dowers in oils by this artist were much admired and secured an award from the judges. Mrs. I. R. Preston shows a number of paintings, among which the most noticeable is that ot a cluster of red - nblied apples, full size, hanging amid the foliage from a branch as they are seeH on the tree. It is a striking bit of work and has !een generally admired. Mrs. Hill has been awarded first premium for a marine minting, and she shows also a very prcttv tiling m a bunch ot ehrysanthe mums placed negligently into a wide - mouthed vessel which allows them to droop over, i. lie coloring and shading is capital Miss A. Webster contributes a couple of cleverly wrought moss pictures and deserves for her patience and skill the award she lias received at the hands ot the judges. Miss Williams gets a prize for pencil drawing. The exhibition directors are to be warmly congratulated on the extent aud excellence ot the art exhibits as a whole. THE II.U'MINATION. The situation of New Westminster on the incline which rises somewhat abruptly from the water's edge, is splendidly suited for an illumination. From the river the whole town may be overlooked, ami from any part of the town a perfect view of the river and intervening portions of the city may be had. The citizens went heartily into the spirit of the time, anil literally covered their houses with Chinese lanterns, so that the town presented the appearance of a many - colored blaze of light. The streets were so crowded with people that locomotion was beset with many difficulties. The torchlight procession was a success, and the " parade " of boats on the river was followed by a display of fireworks from H.M.S. Acorn. This latter feature was very fine, and witnessed under such favorable circumstances, was thoroughly enjoyed. This illumination was a fitting termination to the successes of the past two days, and had the effect of putting everybody iu the very best of humor. At 11:1!) o'clock the train for Vancouver relieved the over - crowded city of many hundreds of its visitors. Mutual friends cheered each other, bauds played, aud as the train moved out the inspiring strains of Cod Save the Queen, kindled the patriotic spirit which found veut iu renewed cheering for everything and everybody as the train moved slowly from point to point in its course out of the city. TUB IKlAT - ltAI '1KB drew a lage number of people to positions where the course on the river directly opposite the city could be viewed to advantage. The various events furnished, for the main part, keen contests. The committee, consisting of James A. Laidlaw (chairman), Captain Grant and William Johnston, deserve much credit for the management of the affair. The tirst item was the ten - oared cutter (of royal navy) race. There were two entries, one boat from the ship Icarus and the other from her sister ship, the Acorn, for a prize of $50. This race was well couteited and was won by tiie boat from the ship Acorn, while a purse of if 11 was made up for the boat from the Icarus. Four - Oared dig race, t entries Valdez, Nauaimo, first, $50; May Flower, second, $15. The gig race, with two pair of skulls, came next. They were respectively named "Blue anil White" and Pleasure. The former was manned by Richardson and Bush, and the latter by Murray and McLean. The Pleasure came iu first prize $i!5; "Blue aud White" second, $1U. The canoe races were as usual hotly contested. The first race was between Fort Hope aud the Chilliwack tribes. The canoes were manned by fifteen Indians each. The race was won by the Fort Hope crew prize, fill); 2nd, (J7.50. The uext race was between the Masquiam and the Chilliwack tribes. There were two canoes entered, each manned by eleven Indians. After a hard contest the Masquiam came in tirst prize. 20; 2nd, $5. Mica race two entries Hush tirst, ?20; Coutts 2nd. J 10. The whale boat race was contested by a five - oared boat from the ship Icarus, and two four - oared boats from the ship Acorn. The Acorn's boats came in first prizes, i20, ?I0 and SS respectively. Dingey race, four entries A. McLean, 1st, 110; Bush, 2nd, $5. HUltSK RAl.INil. A good deal of interest was centred in the horse racing, which was witnessed by a vast crowd. Following is a summary of the results: The Royal City stakes fiat race, one mile, best two iu three heats, open to all horses that have lx;eu in the Province three months prior to date of race; weight not less than 120 pounds; 1st, $225: 2nd, $51); J.

The firemen's race was uot of much interest on account of the Vancouver team finding it impossible to be present to cuter the competition. A race took place between two selected teams of the New Westminster brigade aud a joxl run was made. The football match between New Westminster and Vancouver was stubbornly contested, resulting in a victory for the home players. riil.i! LIST. Sweepstakes Best stallion of any kind, H.

Tiie annual meeting of the British Columbia At - oeiatiou was held on Friday evening in the civic buildings, the main body of which was picked aud a considerable number of people were in the gallery. The meeting win called for 7 o'clock and even at that early hour many were on hand. From the first it became evident tint the people of New Wesminister took a deep interest ia tiie seletion of the place for next year's exhibition Members and noa - memlers were earnestly discussing tiie subject. The annual meeting heretofore has usually been held on Wednesday uigS'.t, but a change was made this year to suit the convenience of the people of the Island, more especially the Victorians, who wired up on Thursday to hold tiie meeting over tiUthe foi'ovirig night. Wa - n the meeting was ca'.Ied to ord;r by President Ladner, it was found that the Secretary was not present, uor were the books of the Association. A special messenger was sent for these to the Secretary's office iu the Exhibition building, where that official, with some of the directors, was en gaged in paying out the prize money Whilst awaiting the arrival of the books. the President made a few remarks relating to the Exhibition and the grounds, which had been prepared at so great an expense by the people of New Westminster. The entries footed up a total of between 1,700 and l,SO0. He could not give them a de tailed statement ot the receipts and expeudi turc at that moment, but he was certain the receipts were far in advance of those of any former year, aud if uot sufficient to pay the prize money ia full would go a long way towards doing so. The fence erected was but a temporary one and would be sold by the Association. He could not sit down without congratulating the people of New Westminster on the decided success which had attended their efforts, for this year's show was far in advance of any previous one ever held in British Columbia. He then stated that the first business before the meeting was the selection of officers for next year, aud then the place tor the holding ot the Exhibition. Aid. Cunningham made a few pertinent remarks. That New Westminster was the centre of the agricultural district was demonstrated by the Exhibition which had just closed. He could assure the audience that it had cost those having the arrangements and the management of the show on hand many hours of anxiety aud planning. He then gave a resume of the arguments pro aud con concerning the accommodation for live stock w hich had been used, aud asserted that at least fifty head of thoroughbred stock had been prevented from coming iu consequence of the inclemency of the weather in the early part of the week, lie explained the slight friction which had arisen at noon on Wednesday. It was ne cessary to clear ttie grounds in order to make all pay who entered the gates. It was a hardship no one need complain of, as the gate money was a revenue the Society was entitled to receive, wherewith to liqni - iate its indebtedness. ' No one could grum ble at paying 25c. entrance fee to the srounds. Iu Oregon the charge was $1 per lay. The city had done well by the Soci ety. He was pleased to announce that the membership to - night was double that of auy previous year. (Cheers.) I he worthy alderman questioned whether tuey were proceeding legally and regularly. No minutes had been read nor the list of membership verified by the secretary. He thought both of these defects should be remedied be fore they proceeded any further, and moved that the meeting adjourn till 8 o'clock tomorrow evening. (Cries of no, no.") Mr. James Orr, M. P. P., moved that the Queen's Park in New Westminster be selected as the place for holding the next Provincial Exhibition. Mr. Thomas Shannon, of Surrey, second ed the motion, which was received with rounds of applause. Mr. W llliaui Dulby, ot Victoria, moved in amendment that the next exhibition be held on the Island. In offering this amendment Mr. Dalby said that he must congratu late the people of New Westminster on the success of the Exhibition aud the society under whose auspices it was held. He had been an exhibitor for the last twenty years at agricultural exhibitions, both local aud provincial, had alwavs taken a deep inter est in agricultural matters since he came to the Province aud was one of the early pioneers in establishing the Provincial Agricultural Association of British Columbia. He had not been an exhibitor this year, as he bad sold his live stock, nor was he now in the manufacturing line. He contrasted the exhibition of to - day with that of 1 SS5, when it was held iu the building in which he was now speaking. It was with pro found regret that he hail heard Mr. Orr's motion, for it indicated that there was a de sire on the part of that gentleman aud the meeting u the number in attendance was to be accepted as an index to the feeling which existed to break faith with the Island and set aside the compact entered into when tho Association was first established, that the exhibition be held alter nately each year on the Island and the Mainland. That was the distinct understanding upon which the grant was made by the Government. Mr. Orr's motion be must characterize as a selfish one, and he sincerely hoped that no breach of faith between the. Island and Mainland would take place. He was of those who held that all our cities would continue to grow aud prosper. New Westminster, he was pleased to observe, was growing fast, so also were Vancouver aud Victoria, whilst Nauaimo was likewise awakening. If the Province cannot maintain mere than one good city, the sooner we get out of it the better. He explained why so few exhibits or visitors were present from the Island. There, as here, tho weather was bad, and many who had intended coming over, remained at home. Iu all fairness, aud to avoid bickerings and bad feeling, he hoped Mr. Orr would w ithdraw his resolution. (Cries of no, no,) Several men began to address the chair at one time. The discussion was kept up some tune, when attention was drawn to the fact that Mr. Dalby 's motion had not been allowed an opportunity to be seconded. Aid. Curtis took tho platform ami endeavored to throw oil upon the troubled waters. He said that although the friends of New Westminster were here in stronger numbers than were those of the Island they should see to it that fair play was accorded to Mr. Dalby and that he and his friends should be accorded a fair hearing. They should be reasonable men and in a position to establish their claim as to why the show for next year should be held here. The matter should be discussed quietly and calmly. There could be no questioning the fact that .Westminster now possessed the finest grounds aud buildings in the Province for such purposes. The city was tiie centre of tiie agricultural district aud easy of access by rail aud by water. Farmers could reach Westminster at less cost and inconvenience than Victoria. Hence it was that he favored the motion now before the meet - (? Mr. Orr again rose to explain his position on the question. Mayor Towuscnd hoped the people would stick to New Wesmiiiister. They had do terii'.incd on having an annual show here and it mattered not whether it was to be a Provincial or District one, but a show was to lie held, and this was the place for it, as they now had good ground and every facility for accomodating the visitors who come to see it. The time has arrived when we should allow the Island to do as it pleased, the ;Main!and could now paddle its own canoe. (Immense cheers.) No one would hinder or interfere with Victoria holding a show of her own, and as often as she pleased. It could be called by any name, and if the government decided to give the usual grant to the Mainland we couid get along without it. (Applause.) There was no monopoly or favoritism about the matter; each place could act as it pleased and saw tit. A gentleman in the audience suggested that the decision le left with the farmers. Mr. Dalby, m answer to this, responded by giving his consent thereto. All he desired was fair play and the carrying out of tiie good understanding that had so long existed between tiie Island and this section of the Province. He felt, however, that it was Useless to nuke any further appeals. (A voice Then go home,) He said he felt tiiat the sentiment just uttered was uncalled for, and intended not only as an insult to him. but also to the Island and its representatives. (Many shouted. No, no ) Mr. Itenouf, ex - Secretary of the .Society, and L. II. fver endeavored to obtain a hearing, b'.'.t the former failed. The latter stuck to his grounds amidst ahouti of "Quest; - a," "Question '. " He contracted the exhibits of which did not half all the buildtn - ' iCo'itiijed oa tue lourtii pe.j POISONED Bl' HIS WIFE THE JURY'S AWFUL VERDICT.

Since the murder of Dr. Crouin at Chicago, in May last, friends of Rev. P. Croniu, of this city, who is editor of the Catholio Union, which has been particularly severe in denunciation of the conspirators, have known that he was a marked man. In this week's issue of the t'ulliulic Union Father Cronin editorially announces that he has been in receipt of threatening letters, some anonymous, others signed, though labelled "not for publication." Continuing, he says: "We have not been reared iu the cuwardly atmosphere of Irish secret society mummery, and so are not accustomed to tremble at the threats of the high muck - a - mueks of such an organization. For over a score of years, in good report and evil report, we have upheld the s'tainless banner of Ireland. Does auy miserable creature of the murderous conspiracy imagine that we will lliuch or abate one iota of just indignation against those whose fiendish assassinations have almost compassed the ruin of the Home Rule triumphant agitation. There are indications that the net work of murderous ingenuity which strangled Croniu has already wound its paralysing toils about the police department of Chicago. The developments of the trials are such as to make one wonder whether this is America and this the nineteenth century. Men are condemned to death in a secret conclave of irresponsible and thievish scoundrels. The government of the greatest republic of history is able neither to protect the victims nor avenge their slaughter. Are the people of America dreaming or is this in - truth a ghastly raw head aud bloody bones reality'.1 Do the conspirators or their sympathizers, defenders, creatures, tools, or relatives, imagine any decent journal will bo diplomatic in dealing with such infernalism. We know not what other papers will do, but for our part, iu season or out of season, we will raise our voice, demanding that the living villains who wrought Crouiu's foul assassination, shall be hunted off the face of the earth, on which they are carrion and pollution, and for those who would endeavor to intimidate us, we have only pitiless contempt. T'iiis is our reply to the threatening and in :ulting letter which we have just received. Is it explicit enough ? If uot, we will have something to say still more pointed iu answer to future menaces." My3teriou3 Fires. Sarnia, Oet. 4.
