'ia stepey Monday, Wednesday, and 4"-. ,i Friday rvening ?:' iX~~lSDAY,;' JULY 1, 1891, r8in4 rso:i DAY.--As usual there was agiin uncertainty .as to the intentions of boaines people with regard to the ob. i6etan?eeof Separation Day as a holiday ; infa'dt most of them probably had no in tentions, and were simply guided by cir. ctnastances, TLe consequence was that this'mbrinig some shops were open, others. ere closed. HLowever, those who chose the former course have this time good reason on their side; they recognise the inconsistency of: crying federation and bseirving Separation Day as a holi. .day. It would be interesting to know whether the condition of affairs to.day indicates the opinions on federation of ihose who have adopted either the one course or the other.
