arduous ami important duty, largely ou the
frontier, for the performance of whiuh he
was entitled to and received much credit in
army circles, where his services were best
kuown. Disservice at these headquarters
was short, but his many kindly qualities of

seriously sick for a day or two only. On Fri
day he was buried with military lienors, in
the cemetery on the grounds. The military
procession formed at his residence, from
w hence it proceeded to St. Luke's church,
accompanied by the guard of honor and the
full batailioa under arms. The Fußeral ser
vices were conducted by the Lev. A. S.
Nicholson. Ills address was as follows:

On Thursday morning last occurred the
imposing ceremonies of the dedication of the
beautiful chapel within the House of l'rov
idonee at Vancouver, an institution of char
ity built and sustained by the Sisters of the
noble order of St. Vincent de Paul, who
furnish homes, sustenance and an education
for the orphan children of our land. The
l!t. ltev. /Egidius .lunger, Bishop of Nis
qualy, officiated, assisted by Fathers Srluaru,
Duffy, lioullct, I'oaps, ( laessens and Klohr.
The Rt. Rev. F. N. Blanehet, Bishop of
lbora, I. P. 1., graced the sanctuary with
his presence, too feeble to actively partici
pate, but never too old to assist in the glor
ification and perfection of his church. The
ceremonies commenced by the priests form
ing in procession, with Bishop Juager at the
head, marching around the outside of the
chapel with appropriate ceremonies, then
going within the chapel, after which the
people assembled followed them. The ser
vices were continued, at different times pro
cessions of boys and girls beautifully dressed
marching in aud taking their places. One
of these processions brought the remains of
the holy St. Victor, borne upon the shoulders
of four youths, who placed them upon the
shrine which will hold them for all time to
come, one of the most sacred objects within
the chapel. Bishop .lunger delivered an ad
dress appropriate to the occasion, comparing
this chapel with a temple at Jerusalem,
wherein none but the elect could venture,
whereas in this temple every sinner was bid
den to approach, as well as those who had
already been embraced by the church. He
closed by extolling the noble work of the
Sisters, and impressing upon them the fact
that this sanctuary, in all times of trouble,
doubt ami temptation, was their refuge, the
dwelling place of the father who would ever
guide and prGtect. The Bishop's remarks
were chosen, timely and very impressive.
The closing ceremonies then tonk place, and
the people departed to their homes, having
witnessed one of the most impressive cere
monies of the Catholic church.
The chapel is situated in the north wing
of the building. It has a seating capacity
ot übout 400 persons. The walls are
smoothly finished in spotless white, the
windows of stained and figured glass. The
ceiling is arched and paneled, tile panel di
visions painted in colon blending finely in
the general effect. At the rear are two gal
leries, one above the other, for the choir,
and audience. At the north end are the al
tars and the shrines, presenting to the be
holder at first a bewilderment of beautiful
statuary and pictures amidst the glitter of
architectural ornaments ami the fittings of
the sanctuary, out of which gradually growl
the presence of the sacred altar and its holy
purpose, the one thing prominent to the
eyes of the beholder. The altar is beauti
fully constructed, supported by two small
statues, the center panels containing raised
figures of the emblems of the passion and
the lamb. Upon the altar are the tall can
dles, crosses and other emblem! placed there.
Above the altar is a beautiful painting of
I and the lamb, executed by an artist
in Quebec, and presented by Mr. Petrain.
It is placed in an elegant gilded and figured
oval frame, in the wall. In the large niche
above the altar is a tine group of life-sized
figures called "Our Lady of Sorrows." At
the l ight of the sanctuary are two niches,
in the upper of which arc the figure and the
altar of St. Ann, mother of the Bleated Vir
gin. In the lower niche is the figure of St.
Vincent de Paul, the founder of the Sisters'
order, holding in one arm a little child.
Above the niche are in gold letters the
words "Fear not, little Hock, for 1 am in
the midst of you.'' Ail statue was made
and cast by the Sisters at Vancouver. To
the left of the sanctuary are two correspond
ing niches. In the upper is placed a beau
tiful statue of Christ pointing to ita bared
heart, and here also is an altar. This is
designated as "the altar of the sacred heart.' 1
It was presented by the pupils who have
boon educated in the House of Providence
by the Sisters duriug the past 28 years, and
it is a beautiful n membsaucc of the moth
erly care they received from them. In the
lower niche is placed the altar and statue of
St. Jotaph, and upon the arch is lettered in
gold, from the 104 th psalm, "He made him
master of his house, ami ruler of all his |>os
scssions." Beneath, in front, is the sacred
shrine of St. Victor, a large and beautiful
case, fronted with glass, containing a WftMß
figure in repose. Within the waxen figure
are the tallies ot St. Victor, one of the earli
est Christian martyrs, and who perished m
the first century. His remains were re
cently discovered in the catacombs of St. t'al
lixtus, near Rome, and were sent to Bishop
Hlanchet by his holiness thel'ope of Borne,
for this shrine.
This chapel is a beautiful piece of archi
tecture for one ><> small, and most appropri
ate in all its parts for the holy uses to which
it has lieen dedicated. Most of its construc
tion has been the work ef the bauds of the
Sisters, even to the casting ef the architect
ural ornaments and the making of many
other things that are usually left to skilled
workmen. Whether the Sisters are proud
of their beautiful chapel, their handiwork,
we caunot say, as the dedication to their
life work does not allow them to indulge iu
the vain glories of the world; but just for
for onre, we think, they DM be forgiven if
they should fed a glow of inward satisfac

Lecture.—Lieut. F. G. Schwatka will
deliver a lecture for the benefit of the St.
Helen's Society, at March's Hall, this
Thursday evening, Keli. I, Subject: "Some
account of my arctic explorations." Serib
ner's Monthly Magazine says: "The sledge
journey and search made by Lieut. Schwat
ka's expedition constitute one of the most
remarkable trips ever achieved." The Rev.
I>r. Talinage, at Brooklyn Tabernacle, Oct.
'29, 1880, said: "Last evening at dicker
ing hall Lieut. Schwatka wa» greeted by a
large audience, which listened with wonder
and delight as this last explorer of the polar
regions related his astounding experience
while in the Arctic seas. * * * All
honor to Lieut. Schwatka and his gallant
party! These are the men who encountered
the sharp spears of Arctic ice. The story
of their endurance, sufferings and heroism,
as told by Lieut. Schwatka, is a wonderful
one. It is the poetry of icebergs, the canto
of eternal winters. Whatever has remained
in doubt as to the fate of Franklin and his
men in 1840, has never been satisfactorily
explained until now. And what a picture!
Was ever its parallel presented to the hu
man understanding? Sarcophagi of ice!
(iraves of ice! Monuments ef ice! Tem
ples of iee! W«stmiuster Abbeys of ice!
How terribly and overwhelmingly sublime!
* * " Well may Kngland and America
honor Lieut. Schwatka on his return from
an expedition in which he penetrated two
degrees further north than any other ex
plorer who preee.led him, and who has for
ever settled the doubt about Franklin and
his men."
Coni ekt. —Tin first concert of the Arion
Quartette Club of thia eity will take place
at the Garrison Theatre on Tuasday evening
n«xt, for tha benefit of the St. Helens So
ciety. The will sing under the direc
tion of Professor I. K. Donaldson, who made
sneh a favorable impression at his appearance
in this eity, at the concert ef the Vancouver
Musical Society, and will be assisted by
Mist A. Steward, Miss E. Brant, Miss L.
Sauer, and Professor Huebner, the well
known violinist. The quartette club itself
is already known to the music-loving people
of Vaucouuer as possessing more than ordi
nary ability, their rendition of several pieces
at the late concert being sueh as to call forth
words of well-merited praise from all who
hear them. The quartette consists of Messrs.
I lonaldson, KUrich, Pressler and Gordon.
Their selections (or the coming concert com
prise some of White's world-renowned quar
tettes, the Waltz Song by Yogel, Msrsch
ner'a Serenade, &e. The programme for the
entertainmeut is varied and well arranged,
consisting of solos by the various members,
duets by Misses Kraut and Steward, Miss
Brant and Mr Donaldson, Messrs. Donald
sou and Prattler, violin solo by Professor
Huebuer, quartette for mixed voices and
the male voice quartettes already mentioned.
We can safely say that the musical treat
heie offered to the people of til's city has
never before been equaled here, especially
by the local talent, of which this club con
sists, as Mr. Donaldson, we understand, in
tends making such a permanent stay it Van
couver as to warrant his being considered
one of us. This is to be the first of a series
of couecrts given by this club for the bene
fit of the several religious and charitable in
stitutions of Vancouver, and for this reasou
alone, apart from the real merit of the par
forinaiiee, they should be well patronized at
their maiden effort.
