^Washington City, April 6.���The inquisition suffered by Representative Breckinridge at the hands of Judge Jere Wilson regarding the testimony of Mrs. Gov. Blackburn would be the talk of the city to-night,
but for some remarks of Judge Bradley
which enlivened the close of the day's proceedings and ha ire obscured all other features of the case. For days past, since the
oase reached the zenith of sensationalism,
crowds of men, boys and women, many of
them well dressed and respectable of appearance, have thronged the court-house corridors, the sidewalks, even the street in front
of the offices of the attorneys of the case at
the hour ot adjournment, waiting for the
principals to appear, elbowing for vantage
points, bandying personal comment and
making things so generally disagreeable that
the objects of their attention have been
driven to make their escape through side
doors, adopting various manoeuvres to avoid
unpleasant notoriety.
Judge Bradley has meantime been smother-
in? a growing feeling of disgust. To-night
his emotion passed the safety gauge, and he
gave aome of these people such a pointed
tongue lashing as has rarely been heard in a
oourt room. After contracting to hold the
oourt room spectators in check until their
prey had got away, he held the usual crush
at bay until he told them that their conduot
was characterized by indecency; that they
reminded him of buzzaids around carrion
aud other things not pleasant to hear.
"If the parties to thia case would like to
go out first they may do so, aod I will keep
the crowd back," said Judge Bradley, as the
people began to stir from their seats. Accordingly Miss Pollard, with her attorneys,
followed by Col. Breckinridge and his attorney a,tiled through the little door between
the judge and jury. Several men made a
rush from their seats after them.
Judge Bradley's cheeks flushed and he
rapped the desk fiercely. "The court has
not adjourned," he shouted above the hustling noises. "Take your seats." Then,
pointing to one conspicuous offender, who
was half way across the room with bis hat
on, "Take off your hat there and go back
where you oame from. Take your seats."
As the men relapsed into their seats the
judge deelared in bis sternest tones :
"This morbid curiosity which has been
manifested since the beginning of this trial
is perfectly disgusting. The corridors of
the oourt have been crowded; tbe egress has
been crowded, and I understand the sidewalks in front of the offioe of counsel have
been crowded, sho wing an eagerness to see
the parties to this suit. They seem to forget that some one beside the parties to the
suit a e on trial here. The speotators have
been on trial for their decency, and they
have been the subject of indecent conduct.
These meu who come here day after day
remind me of buzzards sitting on a fenoe,
wait inn lor a sick horse to die; waiting for
a pile if carrion."
Then, turning to the crier, he commanded,
"Adjourn the court," and strode nut, pushing his way through the halls aud across the
street in a crowd of several hundred men
and women waiting to catch a glimpse of
Madeline Pollard and Mr. Breckinridge.

The "Telegram" Criminal Libel Suit in

(continued from yesterday.)
Q.���Were any officers elected at the Sunday meeting? A.���No. The principal work
of organization and election of officers was
done on Monday night. The Reform Club's
platform was discussed clause by clause and
adopted. A local executive committee was
appointed for the Northfield division and
the branch duly established about 11 o'clock
that night.
Q Who were present? How many from
Ninhfield? A.��� I do not remembu the
names of all those present, but I should
judge there were between 50 and 75 at the
meeting.
Q. ���Who were appointed officers? A.���
Mr. Horrobin was elected president and Mr.
G. XV. Walker, of Wellington, secretary. I
cannot remember the names of tbe other
gentlemen. I think there were seven all
told.
Q.���Now what was your private impression the instant you read the squib complained oi? A.���The instant I read it I
wondered whether it waa worth while to
take proceedings against such a paper or
not. I concluded it would not be worth
while.
Mr. Yarwood���I am not asking you for that
information. I want to know what your
impressions were in regard to the article the
instant you read it and I am entitled to a
reply. However, I will get the information
later.
Q.��� What is the platform of the Reform
Club? A.���I cannot say at the moment.
There are sixteen planka in the platform, all
againat monopoly.
Q ���What are they? What is the firat
one? A.���I cannot aay. I could find a
copy. Tbey are now being struck off in the
Free Press. I drew it up and handed it in
to be printed. If you wish I will go now
and get it.
Thia was agreed to and  the  witneas   left
1 he court to find the platform.
To fill in time Mr. Beevor-Potts was called.
Upon taking  the   stand   this   celebrated
legal light, antwered to the name of Charles
Herbert Beevor-Potts.
The prosecution then proceeded by asking
Charles Herbert where his domicile was
located. Charles Herbert replied in the city
of Nanaimo When asked what detained
him in the oity of Nanaimo he replied that
he endeavored to turn a nimble penny in
the capacity of solicitor.
After these preliminary questions, always
necessary in a proceeding of this kind were
asked and answered the examination proceeded as follows:
Handing witness a copy of The Daily
Telegram marked Ex. "A." solicitor Mclnnes asked���Have you read that article
headed "Ram���pant Reform?" A.���I have,
yes.
Q.���Do you know the gentlemen referred
to there by name in the article? A.���Yes.I
know Mr. T. R. E. Mclunes.
Q.���Do you know what association is referred to there? A.���The Nanaimo Reform
Club ia mentioned here by name.
Q.���Have you any connection with it? A.
���(Witness hesitatingly.) Y-e-s. I a-ni a
member.at the same time glancing sheepishly
at the president Thomas R. Edward Mclnnes who juat entered the room at the
moment.
Q ���(Handing witness Exhibit "B")���Do
you see the article headed "A Strange Co
incidence" contained therein?   A.���Yes.
Q ���Have you read that artiole? A.���I
have read it, yea.
Q���Do you know what it refera to? A.���
The dynamite outrage mentioned refera to
that committed at Mr. Sharp's house at
Wellington.
Q ���Have you read the article yourself,
also the one in the previous paper? A.���
Previous to that.
Q���Yes; What was your impression? A.
���What is it headed?
Q. ���"A Wellington Outrage." A.���Yes
I have read it.
Q ���What was your impression upon firat
re.i.i.ng tlie article?
Mr. Yarnood: Yuur Worship, I objeot
to i hat qu. *a ion. It has no reference to the
charge brought.
The Court���Read the article? "Article
read."
Q. -Mr. Potts, have you read those
articles?   A.���I have.
Q._ What was your impression on reading
the article headed "A Strange Coincidecce?
Mr.    Yarwood���His   impressions    have
nothing to do with the case.
With his usual persistence Charles Herbert continued: My impression from reading
the article led me to believe that it referred
to the Reform Club of Nanaimo.
Q.���When did you read those papers?
A.���It was on the 14th of Maroh.
Q.���At the same tune you read the other?
A.���Yea.
Q.���VVhy did you think the articles referred to the Nanaimo Reform Club? A.���
Because the article headed "Rampant Reform" of March 14th referred to the Reform
Club holding meetings on Suuday. I think
the article says, "They favor Sunday as a
day for holding political meetings," whioh
is also referred to in the sentence contained in
the article "A Strange Coincidence"���"with
well-known leauiugs to anarchy."
Cross-examined by Mr. Yarwood.
Q.���Now Mr. Potts, do you know the defendant in this case? A.���Mr. Gallagher?
Yes.
Q.���What is his position in business?
A.���I have known him to be the editor and
manager of The Daily Telegram in Nanaimo.
Q,���Have you had any business transactions with him in that oapai ity? A. I have
had business with Mr. Gallagher.
Q.���In what way? A.���As a lawyer I
have had occusion to collect money from him.
Q,���Is that the only reason you have for
saying that Mr. Gallagher is the editor and
proprietor of The Daily Teleoram? Ab a
matter of fact you don't know whether Mr.
Gallagher is the editor or not?
Mr. Mclnnes���There is no necessity for
this wrangling. If necessary, we will prove
Mr. Gallagher's connection with the paper
by other means. ,
Q.���Had the Reform Club a meeting at
Northfield on Sunday, the 11th of March?
A.���I don't know.
Q ���You don't know? You don't know
then whether there was a meeting held at
Northfield or not? A.���1 wasn't preaent at
the meeting.
Q.���What I am asking is, waB there a
meeting of the Reform Club at Northfield.
A.��� I was not present at the meeting in
Northfield.
Q.���I am not asking that question, I am
asking if there was a meeting at Northfield
on that date, which you are entitled to answer, yes or no? A.���I was not present at Northfield.
Q.���Do you know of your own knowledge,
whether there was a meeting held at North-
field on Sunday tbe 11th and Monday the
12th of March, 1894? A.���No, I do not
know.

March?   A.���On the 14th.

else? Did he ask your opinion on the
article?   A.���I believe he did.
Q. ���Did he tell you what hia opinion waa?
A.���W-e-1-1, he said something in regard to
it.
Q.���What was your own opinion? A.���
That the articles referred to the Reform
Club, Mr. Mclnnes and McKenzie in particular.
Q.���Who expreaaed opinions firat, you or
Mr. Mclnnes? A.���Probably Mr. Mclnnes
did, I think Mr. Mclnnes did.
Q. ���Now Mr. Potts you have read those
articlea carefully?   A.���Not particularly,

articles refer to? A.���To the members of
the Reform Club.

Mr. Mclnnes���Excuse me, I don't see

are not trying to question the credibility of
the witness's statements, and I object to
any further evidence on this question unless
my learned friend can submit the language
used.
Q.���What took place between you and
Mr. Gallagher then?
Mr. Mclnnes���I object. What is the object of your asking that question?
Mr. Yarwood���I have an object in asking
that question.
Q.���I might ask what trouble had you, if
any? A.���I have not had any trouble with
Mr. Gallagher.
Q���Did you see Mr. Gallagher on Friday,
did you have any converaation with him on
Friday? A.���I am not sure, I think I
did?
Q ���What took place? A.���I askcil him
some question in reference to an article contained iu his paper.
Mr. Mclnnes objected to the questions being put in this way.
Mr. Yarwood���Well, it is immaterial.

Q.��� It refers to you and all the other
members of the Reform Club?   A.���Yes.
Q.���Now, Mr. Potts, what iB your own
private opinion of these articles; your
opinion as a legal gentleman? A.���I am not
here to give expert evidence.
Mr. \ arwood���I thought you were.
Mr. Potts���I am not. Your client's paper
took liberties with my name in this connection, but had no right to do so.
Mr. Mclnnes having arrived with a copy
of the Frte Press, which he sanl contained
a copy of the platform ot the Nanaimo Re-
foiin Club, again took the stand, and
handed the paper to His Worship.
Mr. Yarwood: I object to that being put
in as evidence unless yuu cau produce the

and signed by the officers of the club.
Mclnnes.���That is my platform, and I
am prejiat ed to swear that it iB correct.

field. A.���A few hours before the outrage
occurred.
���y ���The outrage occurred a few hours
after the formation of this branch? A.���

d.iy uight, March 122th.
Q ���Yuu referred to taking proceedings
to my learned friend will you jus' please
exp'niu that? A.���I did not think it worth
while to lake proceedings.
Q.���Ia it true that your association has
well kuown leanings to anarchy and Sunday
meetings.    A.���It is not true, it is a lie.
Q���l),i you know whether any oilier associations were formed in the neighborhood
of Wellington about this time, or during
lhe preseut year? A.���I could not say
whether there was or not, but believe not.
Reexamined by XV. XX. B Mclnnes. The
witness said by way of explanation that bia
cluh was formed at Nor'hfield about 11
o'clock ou Monday night and the explosion
occurred at Wellington about 2 o'clock on
Tuesday morning.
A voice, in jocose voice, from behind the
railing���That was a strange co-inciderce.
Q.���In your cross-e:: nination you were
asked about taking proceedings; exp ain
what you meant. A.���I did not think at
first it would be woith while to take proceedings againBt such a paper.
The case was then adjourned till Tuesday

Virginia straightened her yonng figure,
her arms hanging loosely at ber sides
and an white as "The iiusker" laughing
betafle hor.
Tim patience ami silence of the past
fled away like shades, and resistance,
fully armed, took their place.
"Then you'll never forgive me, for I
do refuse," she said steadily, but scarcely louder than a breath. '-What sort of
life have I lived here at your very side?
Will you hear, now, at, last? You flung
away your money while yon could. You
thought wholly of your pleasures, You
gave me nothing. You didn't think.
You didn't care. Ami I have worked
with my hands, my brain, at anything I
could find to do���yes, often whin* you
Slept. Now you have said all you could
to wound me," and there was an angry,
sobbing break in the accusing voice. "I
could bear even that. But you shall not
take all, father���not my body, my soul.
They are my own."
Everything was dark as Bhe went
blindly from the room. She had a faint
intention of going out in the rain���a
sense of supreme and awful loneliness.
The door closed upon her, and she would
have stumbled had not strong arms
caught her, She looked up and saw
Richard Monklow. One glance at his
face, drained of the hue of life underneath the brown, the lips contracted, the
kind eyes sad, and she saw he had heard
all.
"I asked for too much. Forget my
words, Virginia," he said when ho could
speak. "Forget all save these���that I
can only live If you will let me serve
you, see you sometimes, be near you. I
am yours. Use me as you ���will."
CHAPTER XI.
Delatole was dressing to dine out. As
he struggled ���With tt collar button he
turned his head to listen to the Liay lilt
of a song coming from a roota across the
hall. Kis face wore an ill humored
frown. It was very evident that the
song und the singer impressed him with
equal unpleasantnese.
"Do stop that humming, for God's
sakel'' ho cried out at last. "It's enough
to drive one mad."
There was 1:0 reply, and a few moments lati r Tomlounged across the hali.
He was very dili'i rent from the vvav* r-
ing, tempn 1 man who rushed from Virginia's presence that *nov,*v 1 ;������;;. almost
two yews ti fore. L.is faco had lo I the
flashing eai*:**.*;*'.:.** ** that rose from an
ecstatic heart. It had take n on r solute
lines and-an expression of worldly subtlety. Tho cheeks were slightly hollowed, the eyes placidly heavy, cold,
showing the haggard lines of dissipation,
"Was I singing? I swear I didn't know
it," he sail] languidly.
Delatole surveyed him with a cold, unchanging glance.
"Still in your blouse and slippers.
Won't vou look in upon the theater party at all?"
"I don't care a hang about it."
"Aren't you afraid Mrs. Baudoinewill
send ont a search warrant for you?"
"Let her send."
"Cool for a prospective bridegroom."
"Prospective idiot!" And Tom settled himself very comfortably on his
back on a low divan. "Tl. never marry
Mrs. Baudoine, As the gi: I in the song
says, 'Something tells me so.' Couldn't
you, with your managerial : flics, help
me out of that scrip*.*? You know she
did all the rnnning���not I."
Delatole drew on his gloves in silence.
Ho grew white, and when he caiuo to
the foot of the divan and let his eyes
travel slowly over Tom's supine length
a rago only half controlled made his lips
tremble.
"In my opinion," he said slowly, with
emphasis, "you'll be in a fair way to
need the material help of Mrs. Bau-
doine'a money very soon."
"Really? Oh, then there are times
when marriage seems good unto you?"
And a burning glance wa.i flashed at
him from beneath Tom's lowered lids.
"My opinion about marriage has not
altered in the least. But if a min can
only fail, if he can't even support himself, the most practical thing is to find
some woman silly enough to shoulder
the responsibility."
"Go on. Your English grows moro
vigorous day by day. It's really a liberal education to be allowed to hear you.
Surely you haven't finished yet. You
said more than this yesterday."
"No, I haven't finished. I want to remind you otice more that you owe me
money. More than that, I want it. I'm
sick of y<Jur spiritless languor. I never
knew a man let himself drop as you
have done. Because you go at a rapid
pace is no reason why you should die
mentally. I haven't. But you can't
drink at all without drinking too much
and keeping it up too long. In fact, you
are an extremist in everything. There's
a genius in moderation."
"Don't stop for breath. I am a-thirst
for the rest. More���more," said Tom
without moving an eyelash.
"You shall have it all. The time has
come for plain talking," and there was
a savage snarl in the words. "I want
my money. It seemed there was some
hope of getting it from this Baudoine
marriage, as I don't believe you'd write
another word."
"Don't your*
"No. It may be jovtve tried and
can't���it may be yon don't care. In
either case I've been bitterly disappointed in you. You're the last embryo genius
I'll put on a pedestal. Genius? By heaven! that's rich. Why, you've fallen into psychical ruin. You exhausted yourself in 'The World's Way.'"
An unwilling, dusky red started up
in Tom's hollowed cheek, tt ebbed slowly away as, opening his eyes wide, he
smiled at Delatole with an expression of

WORST KIND OF HYPOCRITES.
It is the object of the so-called Ref rm
Club to amalgamate those miners who may
not feel inclined to support Mr. James
McGregor's candidature, what is termed the
temperance vote, and what one of the members of the foregoing club a few days apo
was pleased to term the church vote, with
the hope that such a combination would defeat the Governmeut candidate in this city.
We hope the two latter sections of the community which it is sought to make use of in
this connection will appreciate the ardor of
Mr. Reform Club President, Thomas R.
Edward Mclnnes,in his Sunday organization
towns. The admissions which Thomas R.
Edward was forced to make in this respect
in the farcical libel proceedings on Thursday last must be elevating reading indeed to
the variouB religious bodies of this city.
"We doubt very much if any respectable portion of the community, church vote or
temperance vote, as these gentlemen are
pleased to call them will be hoodwinked by
the shallow schemes of the political hypocrites referred to above.
THE   ANNUAL   REPORT   OF   TIIE
O. P. R. CO.
The annual meeting of the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company took place in
Montreal on Wednesday last. The report
for 1893 Bhows gross earning*! $20,962,317;
expenses, 813,220,900; not earnings, $7,714,-
416; interest from deposits and loans, $209,-
862; fixed charges, 3533,887; surplus for the
year after the payment of dividends, $337,-
682; accumulated surplus, 87,261,213; decrease iu deposits, including interest earned,
8672,672; land sales, 10,748 acres for $352,-
847; townsite sales above expenses, $15,234.
The past year did not open favorably. A
series of snow storms, with unusually cold
weather, made working difficult und expensive, and tHe earnings suffered in consequence. The decline in the price of wheat
and the depression on the Pacifio coast
caused loss during the last two months of
the year, and tho result is tha'. a decrease in
the earnings haB to bo reported for the lirst
time. The depression in the United States
also made itself felt here, and travel was
reduced. A large quantity of wheat is still
held by the farmers in theolevators, waiting
for a favorable turn in the markets, which,
did it take place, would at once bring business to the road. The losses have baen entirely west of tho great lakes, tho company's
eastern lines showing increased earnings.
The ttault line, and tho Duluth, South
Shore, and Atlantic have suffered in common with all the American lines west of the
great lakes from the extraordinary depression there, hut these lines are now showing
signs of improvement. Wooden bridges to
the number of 537 have been replaced by
permanent structures during the year, and
188 miles of the main line relaid with heavy
rails, the lighter rails, which they replaced,
being utilized elsewhere. The report states
that heavy expenditures for improvements
are nearly at an end, the timber biidges
that remain to be replaced being mostly of
such a character that tho work of replacing
them nan be spread over several years. The
sum required in 1893 for bridges, improvements to the permanent way, rolling stock,
equipment, terminals, etc., was $1,612,654.
No new lines are contemplated beyond the
completion of the Revulstoke and Tamisca-
mingue branches, which are   both   well iid-
manced. Owing to the unfavorable outlook
in business the expenditure for improvements were curtailed, and an issue of
��1,320,000 preference stock, instead of
��1,600,000 as authorized, was sufficient.
Speaking of the commercial depression,
the report Bays that there is no financial
trouble in Canada, but as long as the very
low prices for grain continue, business wil'
remain dull, and there will be no marked
development of traffic. Fortunately the
company, it says, has been able to make
ample provision against such a state of
things, and is in a position to withstand, if
need be, a long period of depression without inconvenience. Speaking of the land
sales, the report says :
" The company's lands are seldom sold to
" new immigrants, but generally to those
" who have already established themselves
" on free homesteads, and who on account
" of their improved conditions are able to
" increase their holdings by the purchase of
" adjoining railway lands. Therefore an
" unfavorable season in agriculture is sure to
" be unfavorable as regards land sales.
" Established farmers have had little
" money to spare for lands during the past
" year, and sales have been light and re
" ceipts on the townsitcs have likewise suf
" fered. Althouph the year waB not a good
" one for the farmer, in view of the very
" low prices for grain, there is little ground
" for sensational reports which have been
" occasionally published concerning the ait-
" uation. They are at least as prosperous
" in the agricultural districts as elsewhere
" in the world, and more prosperous than
" the majority. It should be remembered
" that although the price of wheat in the
" world's markets has never been so low,
" farmers have on several occasions received
" no more for wheat than at present, for
" the reason that the cost of transportation
" has been greatly reduced in late years.
" At the same time the purchasing power of
" money has largely increased, and there is
" no more reason now than there ever was
" to be doubtful of the future of agriculture.
" In reBpect to the fertility of the soil and
" the cost of production and transportation,
" the Canadian Northwest is not inferior to
" any of the large wheat producing regions
" of the world, and the quality of its wheat'
" is superior to any other; the successful
" outcome of its competition cannot there-
" fore be doubted."
Resolutions were passed authorizing the
expenditure of capital for the followiug purposes: Permanent bridges and improvement of the roadway, $714,965; stations und
o'her facilities for traffic! and additional
f* noing, $115,230; Montreal and terminals,
$137,150; substitution of inavy mils for
lighter, $75,000; steamer for local Pacific
Bervice, $195,000; for acquiriug proportional
interest in Sault sleeping cars, $125,000; for
rolling stock and equipment, $250,000���
total, $1,612,345. The old board board waB
re-elected, and at a subsequent meeting of
the board, the old officers were re-elected.
The annual report of the Canadian Paoific
Railway Company muBt on the whole bo
considered very satisfactory, and as bearing
undoubted testimony to the general prosperity of Canada at a time of widespread
commercial depression.
A bill is to be introduced in the Dominion Parliament by a private member to

Col. Prior has been elected president of
the Dominion Artillery Association. Gen.
Herbert spoke in termB of commendation of
the good work he had done in connection
with tho British Columbia battalion of artillery.
"The revision of the voters' liats under
the new act," aays a Provincial contemporary, "is now in process, and it may be
well to remind both our city and country
readers that if they wish to have their
names on the revised lists they should give
a little personal attention to the matter."
The suggestion is good, and deserving of
attention,
The Horne silver concentrator works and
outhouses at Frisco, Utah, have been destroyed hy fire. The burning timbers fell
into the mine, which was also Bet on fire.
The loss to the surface works is estimated
at not less than $200,000. The loss to the
miue is not yet known, hut it is feared will
bo very large. The mine was one of the
most prosperous in Utah, and was one of the
few that remained running despite tho low
pi ice of silver.
COMMANDER HYERMAN of the Kearsarge

long aud faithful service the court recommended clemency to the reviewing authority.
The United Stales navy department is making an effort to recover the plate of the

WELLINGTON ITEMS.
There will be a meeting of Government
supporters held to-night in the Wellington
Hall.
Mr. John Bryden and Mr. John Thompson were among the passengers to Victoria
on yesterday's train.
David Jones has recovered sufficiently
from his weak eyes to be able to attend to
duties again in the store.
The boys biigade mustered again last
evening. They marched to the pavilion,
where they underwent the usual drill.

Mr. Soott of the firm of Sloan & Scott,
Nanaimo, drove out to Wellington yesterday to see how his new building is progressing.
Some people imagine something curious
about Gilbert Small having two black eyes.
Our friend was unfortunate enough to get
struck with an axe by his partner, while
they were clearing away some props.
Mr. E. Merman has received a telegram
from Mose Hamburger informing him of the
departure of himself and bride from San
Francisco. They are expected to arrive at
Wellington either on Monday or Tuesday
next.
Many miners here, who earn their living
by the sweat of their brow, are asking how
it is that Postmaster Brown, of New Westminster, is allowed to indulge in a stump
oration stampede, instead of attending to
the duties of his position which are paid for
by the Dominion Government.

A Northfield baker has adopted the latest
style. A few days ago he changed the
horse's collar, and had it the wrong way
about. Some one noticed it while he was
driving along and called his attention to it,
just in time to save a lively runaway as he
waB about descending a hill.
Several new buildings are in course of
construction on the new townsite on Napoleon avenue. A cottage of four rooms has
been started for Mr. Thomas Spratt of
Nanaimo, who will move his family here to
live as soon aB it is oompleted. Mr. James
Anthony is the builder. He is also going to
build for Mr. William Jordan and Mr.
James Conlin.
Although Wellington has not beeu able to
Becuro a corporation, it should have the
power to prevent the peo, le from disposing
their slops on the sidewalks and roadways,
but by the number of curs and pigs that are
roaming at large on the new townsite, a
great deal of the refuse is consumed. It
would be quite sufficient to support a scavenger, who would no doubt be glad to dispose of it at a small remuneration.
The Wellington Band will give an open
air concert this evening at 8:30, opposite the
Wellington Hotel, and will render the following programme:
1. Maroh���"Beau Ideal."
2. Overture���"The King's Herald." Bari-
tone boIo by Mr. Lewis.
3. Waltz���"Over the Wave."
4. Seleotion���"Pride of Scotland."
5. Schottische���"The Rose."
6. Maroh���"The Dominant."
7. Seleotion���"Songs of England."
The Royal City "Kickcro."
Wellingtonian's are on the qui vive for tonight's political meeting. No force company
would prove the draw which the card of
Brown, Foster, Keith k Co. does. The advent of Mainlander and Postmaster Brown
of New Westminster with his cabal oompany is indicative of a successful gathering
���as to numbers. The Royal City "Kiok-
oro" is sure to receive a right royal reception, especially when he us<-s his wordy
"Winchester" of political warfare.
A young woman of Sapperton, New Westminster, was stopped by a footpad at that
place the other evening, and, at the point of
a revolver, robbed of all t he money she had.
Victorians says the Colonist, may safely
consider that they have entered into the
real enjoyment of spring. The robins are
here in force, and also the Raymond excursionist.
The editor of the Chinese newspaper in
Vancouver has evidently found out that
newspaper publishing is not all "beer and
skittles," as his furnitute is now in the
bailiffs hands.

positive hatred.
"That is one of those charmingly
soothing speeches we must learn to expect from those we live with. But you
are wrong. The -trouble lies here. I
unfortunately must still be sincere and
must put something of myself into everything I write. When ouo believes in
and cares for so little, it is very hard. 1
have not yet matched your stride, yon
see���you who with one arm around your
neighbor's wife could write an essay on
the beauty of morality."
The door banged, and Delatole's footsteps grew fainter in the echoing passage. In the silence that followed Tom
still lay motionless, his wide open eyes
fixed upon the ceiling, tho small unobtrusive sounds of a quiet room fluttering the loneliness that settled around
him.
"Plow I hate him!" and though the
words were but a whisper their reality
was intense.
He thought of the past.
That year in Paris���every detail of It
returned to him as he lay there���that
crowded, riotous, unholy year. His first
taste of pleasure, his exuberant appreciation of life carrying him along with
the rush of a laughing stream going
down hill; the new, levered atmosphere;
the days spinning by in a sort of moral
vertigo; the crowd that called him to
follow where it was brightest, that
brightness lining the sheer descents of
vice.
And nowf Now he was back in familiar New York, bound by honor by a woman who wearied him, inclined to rid
himself of the obligations he had assumed in the beginning through sheer
disinclination to the trouble of resisting,
following pleasure with a foreknowledge
of weariness, in debt to Delatole while
straining tit the wornout cord that bound
them, struggling against the maddening
inactivity that palsied his faculties in
the art still dear to him.
A sharp, quivering breath oome bom
his lips.
Delatole had spoken truly. Botne-
thing had withered within him, or in
the degradation of his life he had lost it
forever. He had striven to write and
always in vain. His ideas were no longer vivid, stirring, flowing to a logical
sequence, but dim, abortive���a hase of
tangled threads. Heaps of closely written paper, upon which the best efforts ot
his brain had been expended with the
feverish intensity a man feels in running
a race, had been cast aside as worthless.
The day was surely coming whin his
world would know the truth and liken
him to n plant that puts forth radiant
blossoms once and withers in a night.
How miserably he had failed I Was
there no escapS from social annihilation except by trading on the infatuation of a woman 10 years older than
hinielf? And once���once���when he had
thought like one inspired, and honor was
a shining reality in his life, he had betrayed love for a chimera. But he must
not remember that, and least of all tonight, in the silence, when his thoughts
were like knives in his heart.
He stood up. shivering, and from habit
turned to the sideboard. He half filled
a goblet with brandy and laughed aloud
as the decanter clinked against the glass
in his hand, a laugh that subsided to ft
chuckle and rose again, beating upon the
stillness like the wings of a caged bird.
"It wouldn't bo out of order to drink
a toast to my own defeat."
When he re-entered his studio a few
months later, his eyes were flaming,
though tlie smile���a hideous contortion
���lingered on his lips.
An open letter on Ills disordered desk
faced him as he sat down. The closing
lines caught his eye:
I will flunliy withdraw "The World's Way"
from tin- roucl in a t'**rtnight. Now that four
BCt society drama is wbat.I'm waiting for. In
two years I've had only two curtain raisers
1 rom you���ra;,-:* of thinks that only drew at all
because your name ivns to them. 1 f I can't rely
on you, I must look elsewhere. If you're not
going to write any more, for Qod's sake say so.
��- Geokoe 1 _unket.
Ho read it and tore it to bits. There
was a sob in his throat as his eager hands
went searching through the mass of papers for half sketched plots aud notes of
ideas not worth the leaves they were
scrawled upon. Ho would not even
leave a scrap. All should be destroyed.
And these crowded, dusty drawers,
they, too, must be emptied, lest Borne
day when he had sunk into comfortable
apathy, with only a profound respect
for tho well being of tho body, he might
opon them and hear each fluttering leaf
whisper how he had once dreamed a
dream.
He worked will an eager intensity, as
if following his heart's desire, even went
on Ins knees and scattered the scrawled
sheets right and left, then paused abruptly nnd looked with puzzled eyos at
what he had dragged out���a long roll of
manuscript, dusty and tied with gray
tape. He did not remember it, had never seen it before. Yet, wait. Now that
it lay unfolded bofpre him, a fully written play, he did recall the title, "Doctor
Fleming."
Just before his departure for Europe,
a distinguished looking man in the traditional shabbiness of unrecognized genius had called on him with this play,
asking in a shy, embarrassed way that
he, the splendidly prosperous young author, would read it and tell him what its
merits were. His papers were never
touched by his servant. It had lain forgotten in his desk for more than a year.
And the man who had brought it���where
was he?
Still kneeling among the mas* ot dusty
papers, he turned the leaves, A tetter
fluttered to the ground:
Dear Sin���I inclose this note, as tt ra��y not
be possible to have an Interviow with you. The
play "Dr. Fleming," which I beg yon to read
as a favor to me, has for lis basis lnutdonts In
nny own life. Thu see no In Jtussla is particularly accurate, and I think presentsadramatic
situation distinctly tt. .v. Your respectfully,
Felix Dawson*, No. ��� Bedford street.
P. S.���If you can Wild time to look It over,
yon will be doing me an Inestimable favor. 1
beg tbat you will be careful of it, as I have no
copy, and even though commercially worthless it is very dear to me.
"Very dear to you," Tom said slowly.
"I know just how you felt, Mr. Felix
Dawson, when you wrote those words,
'Very dear to you.' You shall have you:
treasure back."
He turned the first pa;;*e with a pitying, half languid interest, but only the
first. After that he knelt amid the destruction of his owu work, paying tribute with enraptured senses to the genius
of another man. The manuscript fluttered to tho floor when the last climax
was reached���a climax that made every
nerve vibrate and awoke his senses li!: *
a trumpet call���and with strained, hor
hands he grasped the chair.
He looked around the silent room and
down at the bundle of half furled papers.
Oh, that imagined life pictured there
through laughter and sighing, like gems
through dust and tears! It was more
precious than a magician's wand.
"If it were mine���if it were mine!" he
said aloud, and a woman's laugh drifted
up from the street, as if she had heard
that cry and mocked him.
"If it were mine!"
Be sprang up and turned the key in
the door. Then he stood listening. The
action was guilty, almost before the
thought:
"No one will know If I make it mine."
It was foolish to tremble so, of course.
The cold drops on his forehead were
foolish, too, and his fast beating heart.
"No one will know," he said again,
and there was a note of defiant joy in
the breathless ory as he picked uj, the
play.
A sound attracted his attention. It
was the faraway throbbing of a street
band; tha air,-a German battle march.
It was long since he had lioal'8 i;s heavy,
rolling sweetness, with that flowing un-
lieiieat of sadness creeping in like a
knell for many of the multitude who
marched onward to its swing. A flicker
of pain crossed his uneasy eye.i. He
knew that march. Virginia had often
played it, nnd it pulsed through the
warm night with a wake of memories.
Her face in its diurnal beauty rose before him; then a slim, white robed body
Abated to join tho face, au arm, a hand,
witb linger pointing at the play, crushed
in his grasp. Yes, her very voice was in
his ears.
"You will not���you will not steal it,
Tom! You conld not fall as low as that!"
He dropped into a chair, hiding his
face upon his clinched hands. A sudden nostalgia weighed sickeniugly upon
him.
"You will not steal it, Tom," MOg the
voice in his soul.
But he looked up again after awhile.
The faco was gone. The Gwrniao march
had dwindled to an echo.
"Yes, I will," he said steadily, as if
defying an invisible mentor. "I'll take
it. I'll not be a fool. It's a chance to
redeem myself, and I cannot ict it go. I
can't. The man who wrote it must be
dead���he is dead���and���there's no copy
of it. I can choke down Delatole's
sneers���I can pay my debts���I can start
afresh. It will be life, hope, bread to
my soul. I'm not going to let a fancy
befool me. If it had fallen from heaven,
it could not have come more opportunely.   Conscience?   Bah!"
But for ull his bravado the violence of
tho temptation made him stand petrified
1 eering into the shadowy corners. Every
creak in the silent house appalled him as
lie mentally weighed the chances for and
against detection. He passed his band
across his trembling lips, his namiwul
eyes upon the locked door.
"I'll do it," he whispered. '
All night he bent over the pages, copying the play, here aud there touching it
with wit that came to him then with
diabolical readiness. His heart warmed
over it. It seemed to become his own
by the mere changing of the names of
places and people.
He left no chanco fragment of the
original play to betray him nor of tho
lotter and even tried to forget the man's

Hie secret went witb him everywhere.
When after a month's hurried preparation tho play, rechristened "In the Name

and he knew again the intoxication of
praise and applause, his secret had much
to say to him of a odnfldeotUl and contemptuous natural

something unclean? You have the arena

He listened with agsowtngeqnanhnity
to these whispering!. He saw the philosophy of getting on the friendliest

NANAIMO LACROSSE CLUB.
Generous Grant of Ground  by Mr. S. M.
Robins.
A Lnornsse Glut* c mmittee consisting of
Me>��is. W K L <igliton, H. Simpson, and
E B. Druinniuud waited n Mr. Robins
yist.. rday with a view to gel ting the use of
a pii-ue of land for 'uhe Ltcrosse Club. Mr.
Robius met 'ne gentlemen very generously
und hus ..cueeded to them the use of vacant
lots in Block *ll Biiffieieut to make a capital
athletic ground. The land in question is
sltuuted between the B.stiou street bridge
aud th*' Comox *oad. Il will require damming, draining and fencing, after which it
will be one of the best locations in the city.
At last night's general meeting of the club
in the Wilson Hotel, a committee composed
of Messrs. Leigl'ton, Pittendrigh, Lowery,
Simpson and Diummond was appointed lo
ascertain the estimated cost of fixing the
ground and to report the results a fortnight
from then.
There is not the slightest doubt that if
the outlay is at all reasonable, the citizens
of Nanaimo will back the scheme with
their usual liberality���in fact, several already have intimated their intention to support the unmount.
Mr. H. A Simpson was elected to fill the
position ol field captain to the club, and a
oommittee consisting of Messrs. Ward Bell
aud W. F Nirris was directed to ask the
Council [ul the use of the lower part of the
hose reel house on Deveril Square, as a
dressing room pro tern.
It the proposed ground iB acquired, the
Lacrosse Club will have the honor of taking
the initiative in securing what has long been
needed, and which will reflect credit on
their organization. Before the meeting
closed, u vote of thanks was tendered to
Mr. S. M. Ribiusfor his kindly aotion in
this matter.    ThiB will be duly conveyed.

In the "North American Review."
The current number of the North American Review contains the private history of
the "Jumping Frog" Btory by Mark Twain.
From his showing it appears the Btory is not
new, as tbe same or similar incident happened two thousand years ago and is contained in the Greek literature of that period.
There is also an article in the aame Review
by Arthur Silva White on the possibilities
of "An> Anglo Amerioan Alliance." The
author states that if asked to draft the
terms of such an alliance, or accord, he
would do it in this way:
"Great Britain shall become an ally of the
United Slates in the event of any Eur* pean
power, or powers, declaring war aga;nst the
latter. On the other hand, the Uni'ed
States shall guarantee friendly neutrality in
the event of Great Britain becoming involved
in a war with one or more of the European
powers concerning issues that in no way
concern the pacific intere-ts of the United
States; and, under auch circumstances, the
Uuited Stales shall render to Great Britain
every assistance, positive and negative,
allowed to neutralB."
Thia is another splendid example of unexampled American gall.
