Dying of the Yellow Fever.
London, Feb. 16.���A despatch received
from Rio Janeiro this evening says: The
captain of the Austrian warship in the harbor, died of yellow fever yesterday and
th'-re are other cases aboard the vessel.
The Portugese warships are also infecte d.
The Uniicd Stales squadron communicates
with t he shore only by a hired tug. The
fever bus broken out on the British warship
Raoer. The merchant shipping is suffering
heavy from the epidemic.

Their force was divided and attacked by an
overwhelming number of infantry and
cavalry. The insui gents were, pushed back
slowly without giving any signs of panic.
Admiral Dj (.lama, who was lhe last man to
embark, was wounded in the .im and neck.
Neither wound is severe and thi re is no
doubt of his recovery. Every officer of the
insurgent force was Injured in the charge.
The total loss to the insurgents was 270.
The government loss was little short of 6U0.
To make the attack, the insui gents
collected every available man who
onuld be spared from his post. They landed
6(J0 men, and consequently had left but 80
men to guard Cobras Island and only twelve
to hold Eort Villegagnon. The government
had at the time 10,000 troops and 100 boats
at its command. A dccriniucd atlackon

than 200 men, and Admiral Da Gama, h.s
all connted, hus fewer than 700 men at his
disposal. Admiral Mello is sulkiug at Par
anagua. General Gomeriendo Saraivas' insurgent army in the mountains of Parana
numbers only 4,500 men, and is held iu
check by the government forces which command the narrow passes. The governmeut
fears nothing from this force. Nevertheless,
the President stems unable to end the war.
Admiral D.Gama may continue his bluff
for months, and even win the victory.
An insurgent captain told the United
Press correspondent yesterday that his
friends no longer expecttd help from the
south. Their only hope now, he said, was
lu win by Government blunders. De Gam,,
had decided not to surrender to Rear Admiral Benham merely because he decided not
to desert the men who weie providing the
insurgents with money. These men had
Bmzil by the throat in order that they may
have the money that they have invested
here.

Dr. Alfonso Penna, the civilian governor
of Minus Geracs, has been nominated for
the presidency in opposition to Dr. Prudeute
de Morui h, ptesideut of the Senate. These
two nominations of civilian candidates entirely destroy the theory that President
Peixoto has had the intention of joining the
presidential contest.
Yellow fever iB epidetnio iu the merchant
shipping and the naval fleet is in such serious danger that it ought at once to go to
the anchorage outside the harbor. The
daily number of deaths is above fifty.

An officer of the Brandenburg said late
laat evening thut the main steam pipe of the
Btarboard engine burst. The accident occurred between 11 and 12 o'clock yesterday
morning. Among the victims are many
dockyard artificers. The vessel remains in
the bay and it is extremely difficult to get
details. At midnight the statement was
given out thut the number of deaths would
not exceed forty.

A Cablo From Be nham.
WASHINGTON, Feb. 16. -Seorotary Herbert received thia cablegram tonight: "Rio
Janerio, Brazil, Feb. 16.���As a precautionary measure against fever, will send vessels,
except flagship, just inside harbor within
cull. Every precaution has been taken,
Health of office!b aud crew ia good.
Forty-one Were Instantly Killed
aud nine others were fatally wounded.
Among the dead are three chief engineers
who were on the vessel to report on the
work of the boilers, and aeveral other officers. Most of the bodies were badly soalded,
in some instances the faces being so swollen
out of shape as to be unrecognizable. As
soon na the effects of the explosion were to
the. officer of the deck, he ciusei signals to
be aet- showing that the vessel was helpless.
Five steamers went out at once to the assistance of the disabled warBhip, and getting
lines to her towed her back to Kiel. When
she reached port Prince Henry of Prussia,
the Emperor's brother, immediately boarded
her and found that the explosion had caused
much damage to the vessel.
Prince Henry Worked Energetically.
He helped to direct the work of relieving
the wounded and questioned the ship's officers concerning the names und homes of
the dead and wounded. The .steam tug
Pelican, which wus the first vessel to come
to the Brandenburg's assistance, returned to
the quay with thirty dead bodies. The
news of the accident had spiead throughout
the city and thousands had gathered at the
landing place. Four other at earn tugs
brought ihe wounded ashore. Many of the
crew were injured critically, and several uie
likely to die in the next forty-eight hours.
All were luken to the MilUury hospital for
treatment. The Emperor William is ex-
pee'ed to arrive heie to-morrow.

New York, Feb. 16���The news of the
BUioide iu Sau Francisco, of May Brooklyn,
leading lady in A. Palmer's company playing "Alabama" at the Baldwin theatre in
that cily wus a great shock to the frienda of
the dead woman iu thia city. Ou the Rial to
to-day, little else wus talked of by those
who knew Miss Brooklyu. The despatches
from San Francisoo indicate that she left no
letter or message of any kind,
but her frienda in this city believe they know the cause ot her
act. They say she was to have
been married to Frederick A. Loveoraft,
Mr. Palmer's former business manager, who
committed suicide several months ago in the
aame manner as Mias Brooklyn by taking
carbolic acid- She was muoh affected by
the news of his death and has since been
very despondent. Several times s'*e said to
members of the company, "I won't be here
muoh longer."

anarchists. The police encountered no
opposition at the Autonomic club.
They tt-juk pn-sc-iaior.. ef ,tlie b-iuso
aud detained all the inmates. The raid was
managed so quietly that neither
the pedestrians in the street nor
the nearest neighbors knew what
was li.ppeniug, and the members
arriving laie walked unsuspectingly into the
arms of the policemen waiting to arrest
them. The members who were arrested as
they entered the front door, were astonished
and indignant, but only one of them, a
French nan, resisted the police. He struggled savagely, clawing and biting right and
left and cheering for anarchy, when
finally pinned against the wall. The
total uum'oer of prisoners is about
eighty. The muj tiiy of them are
Germans and Boh* tniai.s. All were examined carefully and then ordered lo show
their passports. Few of them could do
this. The police have searched several
buildings near the club house, notably
Pour liu's private lodgings iu Great Litch-
field street, and It* rooms of Jean Pierre
F.aiieoi.-, whom the French government
Oons deied oil accomplice of Ravochol aud
Hied to extradite. T toy found muoh an-
a c dat liiei'a u- of 'he orthodox kind in
both places, aud a few explosives iu Pour-
din's rooms.
Later���Shortly after midnight all the
men arrested ut the Autonomic Club were
liberated. The main object of the police in
arresting them was to examine them. Important information ie said to have been
obtained from them by the police.
Muoh anarchistic literature was seized at
the Autonomic Club. The police found
many copieB of a manifesto printed ou red
paper in Londou and headed "Mort a Carnot." Thousands of similar manifestoes
have been circulated recently in France.

Paris, Feb, 16.���The tribunal of commerce has declared the Coinptoir des Compte
bank nipt at. the request of lit* bank of
France. The institution was plan *i in the
hands of a liquidator oue week auo, and
Baron Soubeyran, a director, was arrested
tor dishonest practices.
Tbe Poors Excoodod Thoir Rights,
Li'NDON, Feb. 16.���Henry Fowler, preside* i i the local Government Board, directed the a'tcntiou of the House of Commons this evening to several questionable
features of the Peers amendment of the
Parish Councils Bill He appealed to the
Speaker of the House to say whether
the Peers had not infringed upon
tho privileges of the Commons in
altering the decision of the lower house to
pay the expenses of the Parish Councils from
the poor rates. The House of Li-r.ls had
been excluded he said from initialing or
amending revenue hills, Their action iu
the caae to question seemed to him to be
unconstitutional. The speaker ruled that
the Peers had exceeded their rights and instructed the House to ignore the amendment
against which Mr. Fowler had protested.
The announcement of this decisiou was
cheered loudly.

NANAIMO, B. C, SATURDAY, FEBRUARY 17, 1894.
COMMUNICATIONS.
A Letter from Capt. Dempster.
-Editor Tkleoram:
Sir,���Your remarks in thia morning's issue seem to me to call for a word of reply:
first, on the ground of your strictures, to
my mind not a whit too strong, on the
nature of the lecture to have been delivered
last night; and also because of the rejection
on the institution these remarks imply. I
submit that in letting our hall to a lecturer
we cannot justlv be charged with any responsibility for l'he opinions he holds, or be
held to be thereby "bolstering" his ideas:
indeed you allow that "he is there to speak
on his own account, using the Y. M. V. A.
hall only, and not in any way
under its wing. Although just smarting under the lessons of the Onique
charlatan, it could not be assumed that the
very next comer would necessarily be of the
same stamp. Indeed I am aaaured that he
introduced himaelf with credentials that
were entirely trustworthy on the ground of
their being subscribed by one who was
known to be above suspicion. This was the
primary ground of the permission given to
use our hall. That the holder of thiB certificate of character should prove himself unworthy of confidence could not poaaibly
have been predicted. And, let me add, the
moment it was brought to my notice what
was the nature of the lectures, I took a
public opportunity of testifying my disapproval. I may also add, with reference to the lecture expected last
night thot we were fully prepared to
nip in the bud the first semblance of any
objectionable aubject being introduced. We
are as jealous of the standing of our noble
institution as our kind friends who remind
ub of our responsibilities and whose counsels
we accept in tfle friendly spirit in which
they are offered, and we can assure the public that the lesson just given us will not be
thrown away. Your cloBinjr remarks will,
I am sure, be endorsed by all who read
them that "in this matter our evening contemporary has done good work," in the
warning he has sounded loudly and persistently. Thanking you for spaoe,
I am, sir, yours faithfully,
H. L. Dempster,
President Y. M. C. A.

SAMUEL M. ROBINS, Superintendent
KEYLESS  WATCHES.
Ingenious      Contrivances      for      Making
Pocket Timepieces Self-VVlndiiip.
Keyless watches, now so popular,
have long been known, but have not
been in general use more than a dozen
years. Napoleon 1. was the owner of
a wonderful specimen of this species
of keyless timepieces. It was continually kept in running order by a
small weight at the end of a lever
which worked on a weak spring. Every
step taken caused a small "dog" to
drop into the cogs of a tiny racket
wheel, this in turn acting on the barrel
to which the mainspring was 'attached;
ordinary movements about the It raso
were sufficient to keep the spring tightly wound up. In the Kensington
museum, London, there is a pedometer,
operated in a similar manner, combined with a watch, so that the one
instrument tells the time and the distance walked by the wearer in a day or
any other given time. There is a watch
on exhibition at the United States
patent office which is wound by the
simple act of closing the case. It also
has an attachment that throws the
winding device out of gear as soon as
the spring is well wound up.
BRAIN   ACTION.
��� Professor Has Found Out Exactly How
Rapidly We Think.
Helmholz showed that a wave of
thought would require about a minute
to travel a mile of nerve, and Hersch
found that a touch on the face was recognized by the brain and responded to
by a manual signal in the seventh of a
second.
He also found, says Drake's Magazine,
that the speed of sense differed for different organs, the sense of hearing being responded to in the sixth of a second, while that of sight required one-
fifth of a second to be felt and signaled.
In all these cases the distance traversed
was about the same; so the inference is
that images travel more slowly than
sounds or touch. It still remained,
however, to show the portion of this
interval taken up by the action of the
brain.
Prof. Donders, by very delicate apparatus, has demonstrated this to be
about seventy-five thousandths of a second. Of the whole interval forty thousandths are occupied in the simple act
of recognition, and thirty-five thousandths for the act of willing response.

A Smart Yankee Skipper.
A writer in tho Nautical Magazine
tells a story ot how a Yankee skipper
contrived to free his ship from rats.
While he lay in port he discovered that
one of the British ships then in the harbor had among her cargo a great
quantity of cheese. He thereupon
found an excuse for hauling over to her
and mooring his own packet alongside.
The next step was to procure a plank,
smear it well with an odoriferous preparation of red herrings, and place it so
as to lead through one of the ports on
board the Englishman. The immediate result was a wholesale emigration
of the rats from the American ship's
hold to the choese-laden vessel alongside.

THE REDISTRIBUTION BILL.
The most important bill of this present
Provincial Parliament was yesterday presented to the Legislature in session. To
suppose that it will suit the demands nf all
and be found acceptable in the sight of
many, who are often afflicted by a self-
reverting obliquity of vision, would be to
imagine a vain thing Of course there will
be objections, more or less strenuous, and
many who will take exceptions, more or less
relevant, to the findings of the bill.
One thing is certain, that the bill has been
well considered and thoroughly matured,
so as to meet the growing needs of certain
districts, and to combine with measured impartiality the representation of both urea
and population. They of the cities cry for
per capita representation, and dwellers of
the districts call for area representatives.
The main features ht the present bill are
evidently planned t���> meet, within a reasonable manner, the nquirements of both
classes.
As will be seen from our news columns
the alterations and additions are not many
���in fact, they leave the total representation
in statu quo, but such as they are, they are
important without being partial. This city
and district remain as they were, with the
exception of having additional territory
added to the district, including the many
islands within certain boundaries. Altogether, the Premier may be congratulated
on presenting a bill which the most obstinate of Oppositionists or the moBt inveterate
of Independents will 6nd hard work to
volley at with violent verbosity.
THE BUDGET SPEECH.
We recommend to the attention of our
readers the report of the budget speech,
delivered by the Hon. Mr. Turner in the
Legislative Assembly on Thursday evening.
It will repay a careful perusal, and is well
worthy of it, by anyone who tikes an interest in our Proviiici.il affairs. It
especially deserving nf attention at th
time, when the Opposition, particularly the
Independent branch of it, is so very active
in its efforts to discredit the Government���
in point of fact sticking at nothing in order
to do so. Mr. Turner began his speech by
reviewing the position of the country and
the policy of the Government. He then
proceeded to review in detail the financial
position of the Province, as shown by the
public accounts. He referred first to the
amounts borrowed hy the preceding and the
present Government, and the purposes for
which the money waB borrowed. During
the Government of the Hon. John Robson,
it was deemed advisable to raise a loan for
carrying on the public works of the Province. A sum of ��200,400 was borrowed at
4^ per cent., the lowest rate of interest obtainable at the time. In 1M!) 1 a further
loan was railed for the same purpose, and it
was deemed advisable to consolidate tho two
previous loans, ono of which bote interest at
six per cent, and the other at 4J. Tlie net
proceeds of the lust two loans waB $1,617,-
128, costing an annual charge of $49,079, or
a small fraction over 8| per cent. It is to
be borne in mind that this pays not only
the interest on the loan, but the principal,
including all bonuses, at maturity. The
loan of 1891 produced a net amount of
8792,958. For this the Province pays a
total interest of $28,100 per annum, or under
3J per cent. There is a further charge of one
percent, for a sinking fund, and this in fifty
years pays off the principal. The last loan,
that of 1893, cost a little more in proportion than the loan of 1891,,owing to the at-
temps of certain parties to decry the credit
of the Province, but in spite of their effortB
the loan sold at a higher rate than before,
realizing 91. The Finance Minister justly
called those parlies, who for the purpose of
damaging the Government did not hesitate
to decry the credit of the Province, traitorB.
That they are so practically whatever they
may call themselves, members of t ho Opposition or Independent!', cannot be doubted.
The net proceeds of the loan amounted to
$792,978. These loans were raised for the
purpose of being expended on public works.
The Finance Minister next proceeded to
explain what was done with the money, and
what the Province has to show for it.
Since the 1st of July, 1887, there have been
built 110 school houses, at a cost of $17*4:
441; 10 jails, costing $26,985; 12 court
houses, costing $190,692; 595,000 acres of
land were surveyed at a coat of $83,424;
1,200 miles of roads, 800 miles of trails, 600
bridges were constructed, and 5,000 miles
of roads and bridges were kept in repair, at
a lost of $1,531,683, making a total cost for
all the works mentioned ot $2,007,225, Deducting from this, say $300,000, for repairs,
we have an expenditure on public works of
some $1,700,000, for which the works themselves stand as assets, fully equal to the expenditure made upon them. There are
besides 595,000 acreB of land surveyed and
open for settlement, worth $1 per acre at a
low valuation. There are to be added to
these assets public works that will result
from the expenditures whioh have now to be
voted, amounting to considerably over $400,-
000. The public /jabt for all loans amounts
to $3,562,512, less sinking fund and other
available assets, $1,433,344, Bhowing a total net debt of $2,129,178. Thia iB not
more thau the amount of some of the city
debts in the Province, and it includes the
loan for public buildings. The foregoing
shows conclusively, no matter what the Opposition and the so called Independent
members of it may say, that the loans mentioned above have been carefully expended.
We think that it must be admitted in
their hearts by the opponents to the Government, though they will not admit it with
their mouths or in their published statements, that British Columbia is in a good
position financially and that much of the
credit for this is due to the excellent management of the present aud preceding Government. The Opposition and the Independent Opposition papers are accustomed
to assert, till their writers almost seem to
believe it themselves, that the revenue of
the Province is declining. What are the
facts? The public accounts fmm 1886 to
1893, as Hun. Mr. Turner has pointed out,
Btund as follows as regards revenue: $537 ,-
385; $598,252; $698,055; $959,248; $1,020,-
002 and $1,012,257. These figureB do not
look like a declining revenue, whatever may
be said to Ihe contrary. The further details we must referour readers to the Bpeech
itself, which ought to be carefully studied
by every elector in Briti*-h Columbia. If
this is done we are confident that every intelligent and impartiilman will cast his vote
for the Government candidates in prefence
to those who run in the interests of the Opposition, or those who may call themselves
Independents while in reality they are oppositionists, only a little more bo. Hon.
Mr. Turner's budget speech Bhows that the
Government is in'itled to the confidence of
the country

Moody, the evangelist, is sufferiog from severe heart disease. His return to the pulpit is doubtful and depends on his recuperative powers. His physicians have ordered

Henry, the bomb-thrower at the cafe of the
Hotel Temmins, had his life insured for
840,000, one half of it to go to his mother,
and the other half to promote the cause of
anarchy. Henry was a son of a French

Sir John THOMPSON, in hisspnech b* foru
the Macdonald cl**b at Ottawa on Wednesday evening, made it plain Ihat the Dominion Governmeut means to adhere to a policy
of moderate protection, when the new tariff
is framed. The premier spoke of developing the trade with Australia, and said he
had received a telegram from the premier of
New Zealand, wanting to know when the
conference would take place in Canada with
the representatives of the Australian colonies, bo that New Zealand also might be
represented. It is evident that the importance of the trade with Canada is beginning
to be appreciated in all the Australian
colonies.

Studio in the Y.M.0._ Block. W-U ��
It is becoming more evident every day
that the liritish Liberals aud their allies,
the Radicals and the Home Rulers, mean to
enter on a campaign against the Hous : of
Lords and to make, if it be possible, the abolition of the peers and not. Home Rule the
issue at the next general elect ion. In taking
this course they may not have Mr. (Ilad-
stone's approval, bu'. they seem bound to
take it all the same. Thia is made more
evident than ever by Sir William Vernon
Harcourt's speech at tbe Portsmouth meeting on Wednesday. Sir William, who
iB Chancellor of the Exuhecquer-i
in Mr. Gladstone's cabinet, and
one of the candidates for the leadership of
the Liberal party in succession to Mr,
Gladstone, occupies a verv high position in
the councils of the Liberal party, as well as
in the Cabinet. He iB iu fact Mr. Glad
stone's first-lieutenant in all matters of
home policy, and it ii difficult t > imagine
that he would venture to speak as h" did ut
Portsmouth without Mr. Gladstone's knowledge and sanction. The Liberal party, he
said, waB about, to enter on a great struggle,
from which it will finally emerge victorious. Was the Britiah nation to be
controlled by the representatives of the
people, or by a chamber representing nothing
but a selfish class? "Lord Salisbury," he
said, "has thrown down the gage of battle;
the Government will not shrink from the
contest. It ia the business of the Liberals
to convince the Lords that the people will
not allow them longer to over-ride the
ptople'�� will." This is strong language to
be usid by the second man in rank in the
Government, and, as we have said, Sir
William would acarcely have sp *ken ao, if
he had not had Mr. Gladstone's sanction, or
was not at all events sure of it.

Under the auspices of the Ladies Aid
Society of the congregation, a highly successful concert and social was given Thursday evening in the Presbyterian church,

The elocutionists were in especially good
form and the selections rendered by Miss
���Smith and Miss Webster elicited well-
merited recalls. Mr. McLeod's numbers
were very fine and his selection on 'Miners"
carried the audience by storm, drawing
forth in response "The combat between
Fitz James and Roderick," for the vivid
rendition of which Mr. McLeod possesses all
the necessary qualifications, Oake and
Coffee wore served by the ladieB, after
which Bl.ort addresses were given by Rev.

Ladies' Aid Society of the ohurch, and especially to the celerity and efficiency with
which they had provided tor the present
entertainment, the chairman brought the
meeting to a close.
Concerning Lamps.
Hartford, Conn., Feb. Jo'.��� The United
States Circuit Court of Appeals has sustained Judge Shipman's decision in the suit
of the Edison Electric Light Co., against
the Waring Electric Light Co,, of South
Manchester. This confirms judge Ship-
man's order issuing an injunction prohibiting the defendant's from making the "Nova"
incandescent lamp. After Judge Shipman
granted the injunction the defendants filed
a bond of $20,000 to indemnify the Waring
Co. for any damages pending in appeal to
the Circuit Court on Appeals and have since
continued making the lamps.

Latest Samoan News.
Victoria, B.C., Feb. 10.���[Special]���The
steamer Hesketh, which recently visited
New Britain, has just returned to Sydney,
N.S.W., with the report that in connection
with the recent hostilities in the Bismarck
Archipelago the German warship Sperber
visile 1 New Britain and punished the natives by shelling out the villages. The
Sperber, previous to calling at New Britain,
went to the Tokolau group, embarked the
deposed Samoan king Matafa and conveyed
him to the Marshall Islands, where he is to
be kept in exile until death.
The latest issue of the Simoan Times,just
received iu this city, discusses the situation
in the Islands thus: "The departure of the
last warship from these waters has re-opened
the mouths of those dissatisfied with the
existing government, and in many directions
may now be heard open expressions of discontent, where formally but muffled sounds
of a similiar nature were indulged in. The
concensus of native opinion on certain subjects has been obtained from most of the
districts outside of the Tuamasaga, and
rumors are afloat that very shortly a deputation of influential chiefs will wait on the
central government at Mulinuu, making
certain demands with the alterenative of
putting up another pretender to the
throne." The Times' goes on to say that
the demands referred to are in the direotion
of replacing certain native officials, who are
accused of real or fancied injudioious acts,
by others, a m ove which the
Times considers ill-concealed rebellion
The article continues: "We have not the
slightest doubt but that sedition is in
the air and that very shortly the culpable
negligence of the three powers in the matter of disarming the natives will bear abundant fruit. Those best acquainted with the
Samoan will readily understand that until
they are deprived of the means with which
to menace the government they will follow
out their old custom of king mnking which
has afforded them amusement from time immemorial." A passenger by the Arawa also
speaking of affairs at Samoa, says: "There
is a great feeling against the whites; the natives claiming that they have been fooled
by the three 'great powers. The followers
of the late King Tamasese have put his son
at their head and threatened war against
King Malictoa and the white inhabitants.
Serious trouble may be looked for at any
time."
Gold Finding in Australia.
Victoria, Feb. 16.���The returns of gold
mining in the two colonies which produced
most of the precious metal found in Australia, have just been received, and show a
very considerable increase in the supply,
mainly attributable to the Coolgardio discoveries. The latest news from t his great
reefing ground is to the effect that the
township is practically deserted, recent
rains having induced many miners to forsake desolate Coolgardie and join in the Hos beon 0 d agaln under tho Man.

THE
Mile, three new mining centres. It is reported that there ia any amount of water
at Whitefeather; Beveral condenseis are
following the rush of miners providing water. The I. O. U. claim, situated fnteen
milea from Whitefeather, has dolliod ten
thousand ounces of gold during the last six
weeks, from one rich reef. There is something strikingly theatrical in these Y\ estern
Australian gold finds; their richness is indisputable and their permanency seems a
reasonable assuption to experts, but the
uccidents of their discovery are romantic as
well as remarkable. In the case of the "I.
O.U.," an uulucky prospector (?) Btumbled
over a big stone, struck it maliciously with
his pick in the anger nf a bruised shin and
uncovered n mMS of gleaming gold. Chunks
of gold, huts and pillars are what the telegrams speik of, not merely good prospects,
or tbe atiBoluo certainty of paying returns
The latest big sensation is the discovery of
a rich reef in the backyard of a hotel in the
main street of Coolgardie. This ought, to
he the greatest money making concern in
the world���for the publican, who will have
a genuine double gold mine on the premises.
Five Hundred on a Floe.
Berlin, Feb. 16���A despatch from St.
Petersburg says that on Tuesday an ice floe
broke adrift from the coast of Hgermann-
land, province of St. Petersburg, and carried
off many of the men and their families.
More than five hundred persons are said to
be in danger. All persons along the coast
are making every effort to relieve them and
are hopeful of success.
Franee vs. Portugal.
Lisbon, Feb. 16.���The Frenoh government has recalled H. L. G. Bihourd, its
minister to Portugal. The understanding
here is, however, that his absence will be
only temporary. Differences between
France and Portugal as regards French investments in Portugese railways are supposed to have caused the French government to adopt its present course.
The Times correspondent at Lisbon says
in a despatch concerning the recall of the
Frenoh minister: "Although France agrees
to the new statistics of Portugese railway,
relating to the administration and opposes
Portugese controlling the finances, it is believed that this is the point on which M.
Bihourdi is to consult his government."
The Times correspondent does not give
oolor to the report! of oritioal differences
between the governments.

Tho Caledonian Dance.
And still they come is applicable to the
attendance at the Caledonian dance last
night. There were 45 couples in the dauc
ing rooms. It appears that very few of the
dancers require rest, as even the ladies,
without exception, dance io rapid succession
without more than a minute or two rest between each dance. The Caledonian Society
management is seriously considering what
will have to be done if the attendance continues at the present rate of increase.

County Court.
Yesterday, before Hia Honor Eli Harri-
son, judge, a suit concerning a suit afforded
the court and auditors some little amusement. In November lust year the plaintiff,
Martin, provided Ross, the defendant, with
seven yards of cloth to make a suit with
Robs, who is a tailor, made up the suit and
ent it to Martin, charging $15 for the
making up, which includes what is technically termed "trimmings.'1 Not a month
ago, the plaintiff returned the clothes under
the plea that they did not fit, aud entered
the preseut action for $ 24 damages. In
order to get practical evidence, '.he judge
ordered Martin to put the suit on. Corri
gan, a witness and fellow tradesman of the
defendant, thought, the suit was a good tit
but the cloth was bad material. Balfour
also gave like evidence, saying that the material was shoddy.   Judgment was deferred.
Judgment for ��65 and coBts waa given in
the case of Smith vs. Morello, for the
plaintiff.

Grenville, what desolation have you
brought on one whose only fault lay
iu loving you too well!"
It wero vain to describe the agony of
these young hearts. By turns ho raved
and entreated, appealing one moment to
the parents and the next to Lillian, who
each repelled his attempts to enlist them
in his behalf. Ralph's passionate defi-
n:u'o, George's manly remonstrance and
Mr. Newton's earnest and touching appeals to urge him back to duty wero unavailing. Ho argued that he was acting
from solemn convictions of duty and
that nothing could be more convincing
proof of his convictions than tlio fact
t!iat by this step he destroyed every hope
of happiness he had in life, and if Rose
cast him off he should bo a martyr to a
cause he had espoused believing it to be
right.
On the contrary, Mr. Newton assured
him, from facts which he could not gainsay that his mind had been poisoned
from earliest childhood, and now, being
called into vigorous activity, was leading
him to destroy 1 is own peace and happiness and bring misery to those who had
so loved and trusted him.
It was distressing to witness the young
man's wretchedness when he tried to
say farewell. As he approached Rose,
in whose whole attitude scorn, disappointment, insulted affection and earnest
entreaty were all unmistakably mingled,
Ralph started to his sister's side, throwing one arm around her, and with the
other waving him off:
"Dock! Do not touch her, or I shall
find it in my heart to strike you dead at
her feetl Miscreant! Traitor! Look;
at your work! Reflect upon the misery
you are causing one you have so pre-
tenued to love! A southerner's hot pas-
soon, soon cooled, ready now to forsake
her true affection, f*>rswear your country, reject her laws and take up nrnis
with a misguided mob and fight against
all that you but too well know Rose
most values. In your very first battle
you may be brought face to face in deadly conflict with tiio members of her own
house, and yet you havo dared to ask
that she should leave us all and follow
you in your mad career.*"
' MA Mil
"Thf* is from ycrvtr parent*, I jtrcsume."
. With fierce gestures and passionate
manner R'llph poured out these wild
words, unheeding the excitement they
produced till a gasping moan from his
sister checked him, und as his mother
and Lillian placed her half fainting on
tho a *i'a her lover sprang forward, and
kneeling at her side cried:
"Rose! Rose! my darlingl Do not
cast me off! 1 would die to save you one
pang! God is my witness that I speak
the truth, but my whole soul revolts at
this northern interference with southern rights. I would but give to my native soil what your brother.} have your
hearty approval to bestow on yours. Oh,
listen to me. Rose, and love me still!
And when this strife is ended���and it
will not be long before southern rights
are securely established���ah, then, my
beloved, till me if I live I may hojie to
wake you my own."
It was an unfortunate speech for the
pleader, bat it roused the spirited girl
from tho heartsick lethargy which wns
stealing over her, and sho answered witli
<lignii.y and firmness!
"Noycrl But if you will lend youraid
to uphold and enforce the government
of these United States and assist to reclaim thoso disobedient children who
have rebelled against their mother country, then all the sad jnisjurtyments of
the past shall be buried forever, never to

utter strangers. I wait oue moment f. r

What a change had this hour's i_ony
wrought in Rose, whose pretty, winning
ways, all softness, gentleness aud love,
made her, as George used to say, "the
sunbeam" of tho house. All looked on
in silent grief and amazemont. Her
slender form seemed to expand into
queenly dignity. Her eyes, wont to
sparkle in gleeful humor, now looked
down in clear and regal light on the
recreant lover, who could not meet their
determined gaze.   Thus he stood

Again with a bitter cry Jasper triad
to stay her, but Mrs. Newton laid a restraining hand upon his arm aa the door
closed after her, saying:
"This has lasted too long already. My
daughter has been sufficiently tried.
Your own act has severed all connection between us, and you must now depart. Harsh u3 it may sound, my roof
cannot shelter a traitor. Our paths
from this time lead in an opposite direction. I grieve that you should be so
blinded and that our pleasant intercourse
must cease. But you would have it so.
May God forgive yon, but now farewell."
Without a word he passed ont, and in
a few moments his horse's feet rang
clear on the gravel path, and long after
he passed the gate could be heard, urged
by the wretched rider into a mad gallop along the road. Little oared ho if
be aped to instant destruction.
CHAPTER 31
It were nseless to dwell longer on the
dread notes of war, to speak of the high
enthusiasm of the young, brave hearts
that panted to rush to the conflict
��f the no less determined but saddened
mood of the parents, of Lillian's earnest sympathy and ever ready aid to
all, or Alfred's regret that youth debarred him from the field. Imagination
can call up all that is left untold, but it
cannot portray the transformation a few
short hours had made in Rose. From a
bright, sportive, sunny child she bad
passed at once into a noble woman.
That Sabbath evening she begged to
remain undisturbed, and her mother,
with a loving kiss, left her, though with
an aching heart.
But the next morning saw Rose at her
regular work, self possessed, but bearing unmistakable evidence of some
strange change, of a hard battle fought
and "ictory won. Her face was paler
than usual, and the merry laugh or
cheerful carols that always heralded her
approach were hushed, but no trace of
gloom or sadness could be seen, A high
and holy light burned in her eyes, a lofty
purpose, a consecration of all her powers to serve the noble work spoke in every movement. She conversed as unhesitatingly as ever, was as thoughtful
of others' happiness, more so if possible, but underlying every word and act
was the visible evidence that her mind
was working out some plan for future
action. Her friends had agreed that no
questions should be asked. Time and
her own wishes were to decide.
When the morning's work was all disposed of, and the family gathered together for some consultation before dinner was served, Rose quietly told her
parents that as Eustace and her brothers
were to join the same regiment the next
day she was exceedingly desirous that
Lillian's marriage should take place before they were separated. Sho begged
that this, w'.ich must be their natural
wish, should not l>e delayed out of any
needless delicacy on her account. The
past, as far as sho was concerned, must
remain a sealed book to all forever, but
if they would help her they must let her
see that their happiness was secured as
far as human foresight could secure it.
Eustaco then acknowledged that he
had urged Lillian to consent to such an
arrangement, feeling sure that her parents would think it advisable, going as
he was into imminent danger, that they
should be united before they left. So
the two were quietly married. The ceremony ended, the family all escorted the
three young men to the camp, not far
from the city, a far different bridal tour
than Eustace and Lillian had often pictured.
Eustace had far more knowledge of
military scienoe than most young men
who had not intended to make it their
profession, and George's tastes and education had inclined him to become familiar with engineering. As soon as it
was known they were ready to enter
their country's service in any capacity
they were sought after to fill important
positions in various regiments then banding together. Eustace was placed as
colonel, and that they might be together
in the same camp George accepted a cap-
taincy and Ralph a lieutenancy under
him rather than to enter into the more
desirable positions that had been offered
and be separated. This arrangement.
highly gratifying to the parents, was
planned in part aa a just tribute of the
