Victoria, April 4.��� [Speoial.]���Hon. Mr.
Beaven presented a petition from B. T*
Williams respecting the bindini; of the provincial statutes.    Received.
The report from committee of supply, on
the supplementary estimates, was adopted.
Sucoesslon Duties.
Dr. Milne moved the second reading of
his amendment to the succession of duties
bill, to exempt all estates of not more than
$10,000 value, instead of 85,000 as proposed.
He argued that as this is done in Ontario it
Bhould be done here.
The amendment was lost, only Messrs.
Milne, Beaven, Semlin and Grant voting for
it.
Another amendment by Dr.   Milne to exempt property passing to a near relative, up
to $100,000 in place of $25,000 as proposed,
also was lost on division
Bill read a third time and passed.
Nakusp and Slooan Railway.
Hon. Mr. Beaven resumed the debate
upon the motion for the seoond reading of
the bill to authorize the guarantee in aid of
the Nakusp k Slocan railway. The agreement which the House authorized waB that
the road should be built and equipped in
return for a guarantee not to exceed $25,-
090 a mile, but it is found that the Canadian
Pacific railway are equipping the road, and
they are equipping it with old rails too.
Hon. Mr. Davie���Do you call that equipping it?    (Laughter.)
Hon. Mr. Beaven continued tbat they are
putting old rails there, anyhow, and he
wanted to know if it is the duty of the Government to look after the interests of the C.
P. li. and the Nakusp k Slocan company
only, in allowing this to be done.
-<Mr. Sword thought the c;;.._ry would
endorse the argument of the leader of the
Opposition that the Government have iu
this oonnection exceeded the powers conferred upon them.
Hon. Mr. Davie���Why didn't you say
that last year?
Mr. Sword replied that the bill was
brought down so late last year that there
wns not time to consider it properly, but at
all events it is not his actions but those of
the Attorney-General which were now in
question.
He asked would any private concern,
would R P. Rilbet k Co., for instance,
i hiuk of guaranteeing any enterprise if they
were not to receive the profits arising out of
it.
Hon. Mr. Turner said he had remarked
the great difficulty experienced by the
leader of the Opposition in attempting to
show that something wrong had beeu done
in this matter, and that he had to fall back
constantly upon such statements as that
agreements had been signed on the wrong
day, or that bonds had been deposited at
the wrong time, or something of that sort.
Mr. Sword appeared to think it a strange
that the construction company had to make
a large deposit, but he ought to know that
this is the case in contracts for large works
of all kinds, and especially in railway construction.
Mr. Brown Baid the Opposition are iu the
very difficult position tbat they do not
know that if they vote for what may be a
scheme of some advantage to the country it
may not be also for the greater advantage
of some private banking accounts. He declared that he had good authority that the
road cannot cost within $4,000 or $5,000 of
tlie amount guaranteed, thus leaving a margin for boodle to this amount on the extent
of the whole 37 miles of the road. He asked
what must be said iu the face of these facts,
Hon. Mr. Davie���Why don't you say what
you have to say?
Mr. Brown continued that the facts
brought out certainly show that someone
must be making a pretty good thing out of
this, and that the Government have been
certainly neglectful of their duty. He held
that if thiB road is a necessity and had to be
built at the expense of the country, the Gov'
ernment Bhould have borrowed the money at
3 or 34 per cent., and built and owned and
controlled the road themselves.
Hon. Mr. Vernon said after listening attentively to the remarks of the hon. gentlemen opposite, be found that almost every
objection they had brought forward had
been completely answered in advanoe in the
speech of the Attorney-General. But it was
advisable to have the road built, amongst
other things becauso the C.P.R. had said
that if the Government would secure the
oonstruotion of this line they would build a

branch for the thirty miles from Revelstoke
to Arrow Lake, but that if the Nakuspft
Slocan were not built they would not go on
with their line. An hon. member had disputed the urgency for this line.
Hon. Mr. Beaven���Who said that?
Hon. Mr. Vernon replied that he understood that Mr. Sword had said so; if he had
not then it would not be necessary to go
into the point. He thought that he had
fully answered the complaints made by the
hon. gentlemen opposite���he hud in so far
as he understood the drift of their remarks,
and he hoped that now, after the Governmeut had gone so far out of their way to
make this matter perfectly plain, they
would support the second reading of this
bill. If thoy do not then it will be clear
that they are actuated by something else
than a desire for the welfare of the Province; and that the intention of their insinuations and inuendoes is merely to create a
wrong impression which may aid them in
the coming elections.    (Applause.)
Mr. Brown, in explanation, denied that
he had advocated for the Chilliwack road
what he condemened in the Nakusp rail"
way, and held that >he had beeu careful to
neither advocate nor condemn anything.
He had merely compared the haste with
which the one road had been taken up, with
the neglect to do anything in the case of the
other.
Mr. Cotton reviewed the tacts as they appear in the papers presented, and contended
that they Bhow a want of care on the part of
the Government in making the arrangements. He held that in the matter before
the House the Government has neither acted
prudently nor in the best interests of the
Province, and, therefore, he would vote
against the second reading of the bill.
Mr. Hall thought a question of this kind
should be discussed without such wretched
insinuations against the motives of the members of the Government and their supporters.
Mr. Grant said he thought that taking
the whole facts into coneideration the arrangements now under discussion is more in
the interest of economy than that first sanctioned, and that the saving to the Province
is practically the difference between $17,500
and $25,000 per mile. He thought the
revenue soon to come out of the Kootenay
country would more than make up for the
expense thus incurred in helping to open it
up.
Mr. Booth called attention to the fact
that, the House had last year resolved that
the road ahould be built aB rapidly and as
cheaply aB possible; and though the plan of
guaranteeing the interest only had then
been adopted, the plan now recommended
had since been found to be the better one.
He thought the fact that the C. P. R. had
undertaken to run the road for twenty-five
years for sixty per cent, of the proceeds an
excellent proof that it is not thought to be a
doubtful investment.
Hon. Mr. Davie said that though the procedure would be somewhat unusual he asked
under the circumstances to Bay a few
words���
Hon. Mr. Beaven "roae to a point of
order" and objected.
Hon. Mr. Davie, amidst continuous interruptions on the part of the Opposition, said
it seemed grossly unfair that the hon. gentlemen should decline to hear him, taking advantage of the rule of the House. They had
all the aft* ruoon been engaged in pouring
out ihe vials of liieir wrath upon him, in the
saff uonvic ion that ha could not be heard
in reply, auil he thought the country will
fully understand the significance of their ob
jection to his speaking. Their course is
that of a mere craven He would, however,
take the opportunity which will be afforded
later on to fully answer everything that
they have charged or insinuated.
The bill was read a second time on the
following division:

Threo Forks Townsite.
The adjourned debate on the second reading of the bill to authorise the Crown Grant
of the Townsite of the Three  Forks was resumed.
The amendment   of   Mr.   Sword,   to refer
the matter to a select committee tor report,
was put and lost on division.
Bill read a second time on division.
Tramway Land Grant.
Hon. Mr. Davie, rising to a question of
privilege, said he wished to refer to an
article that he saw in the Victoria Daily
Times, purporting to . be taken from the
Ncws-Adt'ertiser of Vancouver, in reference
to the bill before the House a few days ago
authorizing the grant of certain lands to the
Vancouver k Westminster tramway company.    That article proceeded:
"Yet this is what occurred in 1892 whan
the Twin Cities railway company applied to
the legislature for a charter authorizing it
to construct a railway between the two
cities. The Attorney-General then urged as
the chief reason for refusing to gra.it a
seoond company a charter the fact that the
company which had already constructed a
line had neither asked for nor received any
aid from the Province."
He wished to say that the statement
made in the passage just quoted is entirely
untrue.
Dyking and Drainage.
The report from committee of the  whole
on the bill to authorize certain dyking and
drainage works in the district of New Westminster was taken iuto consideration, and
adopted with amendments.
HaU Mines.
. The House again went into committee on
the Hall Mines bill,Mr. Rogers in the chair.
The committee rose and reported progress.
The House adjourned at 11:50 p. m. until
2 p. m. the following day.

At a meeting of the Parnellite section of
the Irish National parly held in Dublin yesterday, Mr. John Redmond made a speech
in which he declared that Home Rule would
be in no worse position than it is now if the
Tories were to come into power to-morrow.
A resolution was passed urging all members
of the Irish party to devote their energies to
bringing about an early dissolution of Parliament.
The committee appointed by the London
Chamber of Agriculture to consider the
question of bimetallism, reports that the
silver systems of the United States and
India have depressed the value of Bilver,

price of gold, under the system of bi-metallism prior to 1893 It recommendB the ap-
poiiitnient of a Royal Commiasion on currency. Some members of the Chamber dissent, and say the present depression is not
due bo much to silver conditions as to other
causes, oue of which was the importation of
foreign cattle.
A convention of the Parnellite section of
the Irish party held yesterday in London
was attended by all the leading Parnellites
and representatives of other sections of the
Irish party. Redmond, in a speech, declared that the policy of the present Government waB no better than that which
would be pursued by Conservatives were
they in power. He asserted that any further exercise of patience on the part of the
Irish was a weak and cowardly betrayal of
the interests of their constituencies. He
argued for a fearless constitutional agitation and an iudependence of action such as
pursued by Parnell. A resolution declaring
that the Government had forfeited all
claims to the confidence of Irishmen, and
urging the Irish to do everything to bring
about a dissolution of Parliament was
adopted unanimously. Redmond made an
appeal for funds to maintain the Irish organ.
The resolution paBsed pledging the delegates
to endeavor to raise funds. During the
session a cable despatch was received from
the president of the Irish Independents of
New York, wishing tho Parnellites God
speed in the fight for liberty, and requesting
them to draw on the treasury ef the Irish
Independents of New York for $5,000.
The spy Le Caron, so prominently identified with the charges againBt the late Chas.
Stewart Parnell, died in London on Sunday
from a painful malady. Le Caron claimed
to have been a major in the American volunteer army, but the truth of this statement
was doubted. In 1889, wheu the London
Times case was before the Parnell commission the police called Le Caron to England
and put him on the witnes8 Btand, to disclose the inner workings and secret purposes of the American Clan-na-Gael Association. He accused Patrick Egan, Alexander
Sullivan, Thomas Brennan and other prominent American Land Leaguers of being the
leading spirits in the revolutionary organization, and alao testified to conferences that
Parnell and other Parliamentary leaders had
with the chief FeuiauB when in the United
States. After the trial Le Caron publiahed
a book continuing "revelations" about Irish
dynamiteis. The police henceforth had to
look after him. He dyed his blaok hair and
moustache and took up his residence in a
small house in a southwestern suburb of
London. The police guarded the house
constantly, and he seldom went out. He
had been ill for nearly a year and hia physician waB a younger brother of Thomas
Burke, the Under Seoretary for Ireland,
who was assassinated with Lord Frederiok
Cavendish by the Invincibles in Phmnix
Park, Dublin. 2

them.l
"Ono would think I talked of committing a crime." And the words were
breathless.
"And so yon are. Isn't it a crime to
throw away your chance? Life doesn't
offer too many of them. Let me tell
you, too, my dear fellow, that you do
not strike me as one who wonld cultivate the virtues of patience anil humility
under the stress of failure and poverty.
Marry now, when you have just crossed
the line, before your strength has bad a
fair test, ami you'll not only fail, but
probably break your wife's heart in a
year. You remember what I said to
you last night, I did not dream then
that you wero thinking of tlio madness
of an early marriage; that you stood on
the verge of tho abyss ntrewn with the
ruins oi good beginnings."
As Tom listened his face grew stern,
his eyes searching.
"Why should I fail because I keep my
word to a woman, better, truer, a hundred times, than I am���not a woman to
retard any man's progress? Sho has
been my inspiration. You don't know
Virginia. She is more to me than anything in tho world. I need not fail. I
will not fail."
He looked very stalwart, very determined, as he towered above Delatole, his
blue eyes flashing in his intense face.
"What interest can I have but for
your good?" asked his new friend, and
the silken voice held a soothing gentleness after Tom's hot, strained tones.
"Let us look at this matter dispassionately. You are young. You have written one play of startling strength and
charm. It will bring you so much money. Alone, independent, you would havo
a good income, be ablo to mix with the
world, travel a little and feed your brain
until it teemed with digested impressions
gathered from boudoir and barroom.
The same money will not support a
home and a wife except in a cramped,
obscure way. Your love for her will be
another drawback tn earnest work. The
treadmill of your dull, loving, respectable existence day in aud day out in some
little flat will afford no feverish impetus
to your imagination. You will never
write a play worth having typewritten
on the inspiration offered by a baby's
fists. Ah, have I uot watched the mental
paralysis set in before? Love is bad
enough, but love and poverty"	
Tom turned away aud faced the window. He did not seek the park. For
just one moment the gray piel uro Delatole
stretched rose before him, and an acute,
unmeasured despair took hold of him.
He beat it back fiercely. He would
not believe. But the resistance was no
longer buoyant; it was forced.
"Then there is the other side���freedom
knowing no limit," continued Delatole
in a soliloquizing tone as he walked up
and down smoking, never once glancing
at the silent, erect figure in tho window.
"Freedom. Only those who have surrendered it know the full sweetness of
that word. Every door would be open
to you. You need not only be a Botso-
mian. A fellow like you, of undoubted
talent, well looking, clever, independent
and with some money would not have
to knock at society's golden door for admission. It would fly open to you. For
myself I bate the stiff set, but it is always well for au artist to become
acquainted with ev.ry sort of human.
Under conditions of this 8~rt your artistic
vein would warm and expand, your nature vibrateto change after chu uge. The
man who enters a raee fettered is a fool.
When I have said this, I have said all."
There was silence after these words
and then tho rustling of paper. Tom
hastily turned and saw Delatole leaning
against the table, looking scornfully over
each of the pages whereon the criticism
was written that had so delighted him.
A painful premonition made him cold,
but ho said nothing.
"Ah, well, I wish I had known that
you contemplated this idiocy before I
wasted time and ink on you, Murray.
You didn't tell me, of course. No reason why you should. But I assure you,
had I guessed what manner of man you
were I wouldn't have plunged iuto such
a bewildering propheoy about your future greatness. I'm not usually so impulsive," aud he rent the sheets half
across before Tom's voice made him
pause.
"Is this fair? Iryou really liked 'The
World's Way,' why won't you say so?"
Tho mysterious violet gray of twilight
stealing through the high windows behind him touched his young face with
shadows. It was pinched, eager, watchful.
"Oh, I'll do that, of course. A few
lines, a paragraph, will suffice, but not
this psalm of victory, this heralding of
a new voice that is not to bo stilled, but
will rise again arid again���not that.
You'll have to prove all I've said false
beforo I write of you in that strain."
And he was the incarnation of bland,
impersonal regret, as the papers once
more fluttered in his hands.
He looked them over half regretfully.
"It's one of the best things I've ever
written, but in submission to my honest
opinion I must destroy it."
In a few strides Tom was beside Um.
They looked intently at eaoh other
Tom's eyes wavered and fell.
"Don't���don't," he said, and Ms mice
waa half choked. "Give me time. Let
me think."
Half an hour later they were walking
np University place. They dined at a
chophouse frequented by Bohemia,
where tables were bar* aod beer was
served in mugs.
"Better than Delmonico's tn certain
moods," said Delatole as they crossed
the sanded floor; "the food is excellent
and oooked to suit Lncullns. As acoom-

SOME RESULTS.
Some months ago The Telegram, in a
series of articles on Nanaimo's needs,
pointed out the necessity for a new court
house in this city, and also contended that
the Provincial Government should grant the
oity a suitable appropriation towards the
erection of the new school houses which the
eity had to build after the present school
act became law. The result of our efforts
in this respect, while perhaps for the
present not as large as we had anticipated,
have been fairly satisfactory. In the estimates for the year ending June, 1895, provision haB been made for the commencement
of work on a new court house and other
offices necessary for carrying on the Government business in thiB city and
distriot. An appropriation of $5,000 has
also been made to the city to-wards the
schools. It may be said that the court
house and public offices would have been
#one on with anyway but while this may be
admitted, we have every reason to believe
that the work would not be undertaken
this year at least. Had The Telegram
not taken up these matters and drawn the
attention of the Government to them the
city would have been without the scho.l
grant if not the tw.> items referred to, because we are safe iu saying our members
would not have thought of them.
The Government cannot be expected to
look after local details. They have the interests of the whole Province to keep in
view as represented to them by the district
members. If the members neglect their
duties the districts electing them must
suffer the consequences.
BI-METALLISM.
Mr. Charles Francis Adams has announoed
that he is a convert to bi-metallism. A year
ago, he says, when the controversy over the
silver question began, he was a gold mono-
metallist, But he has since had occasion to
revise his opinion. Mr. Adams' name is
one much respected in American circles, and
no one will think of attributing his change
of opinion on this subject to any other
motive than conviction. It is surprising the
number of distinguished men who are now
oommitted to bimetallism, and advocate it
as every way a safer und hotter system than
gold mono-metalliBin. The Rljrht Hon. A.
J. Balfour and Sir David M. Barbour, who
was lately Finance Minister of India, are
among the most distinguished of those in
England. Both are comparatively young
men. Mr. Balfour will probably be leader
of the Conservative party in succession to
Lord Salisbury, wh.'se nephew he
le, and may one day be
Prime Minister of England. Sir
D. M. Barbour is one of the most successful
of the able men who compose the Civil Servioe of India, and who in fact governs that
great dependency. The opiuion of such a
man, who has lived for many years in India,
where silver has served as the main currency for centuries, cannot but be regarded
with the utmost respect by men qualified to
judge upon the subjeot. It would not be
easy to enumerate the names of distinguished men in the United States who are
avowed bi-metallists. In fac, bi-metallism
is now professed by most of the able writers
who for months past have been discussing
financial questions in the American reviews
and monthlies, in connection with the subject of ailver more especially. If we were
to judge \,y this only we would be driven to
the cor elusion that   the great   majority of
NANAIMO, B. C, THURSDAY, APRIL 5.1894.
k\
able financial writers in the United States
at present are certainly bi-metallists, and
the influence they exert over the minds and
opinions of their readers cannot be small.
There is in fact no doubt that the theory of
bi-metallism, at least, is making rapid progress, and it will not be long, we think, till
the international practice in this respect is
made to square with theory. We believe
that the international remonetization of
silver will not be long delayed, and that its
establishment will be followed by an era of
general prosperity such as haB not been
witnessed during the life of the present
generation. In the general prosperity which
bi-metallism, if it were established by international agreement, would largely help to
create, this Province will beyond question
have its legitimate share, and silver mining
will become its prevailing industry. We
can only hupe that day will be hastened. In
the meantime it is everyone's duty to do
what he can to spread the light.
The death isreportedof thespy.Le Caron
who took such a prominent part as a witness
in the celebrated libel case against the Times
brought by Charles Stuart Parnell and his
friends. The case, it will be remembered, was tried by commission
in London in 188!), the late
Baron Hannen presiding. Le Caron subsequently published a book, containing revelations about the Irish dynamiters. He had
thenceforth for a long time to receive police
protection at his residence in London. A
younger brother of Thomas Burke, Under
Secretary for Ireland, who was assassinated
along with Lord Frederick Cavendish in
Phu-nix Park, Dublin, by the Invincibles,
was Le Caron's physician, lived with him,
and was similarly guarded by the polioe.
The annual report of the Minister of
Railways for the Dominion has just been
published. The number of miles of completed railways in Canada are 15,320. Of
these 15,020 were in continuous operation
during the laBt fiscal year. The number of
main lines of railway, it iB stated, is sixty-
five. At the close of the fiscal year the
paid up capital amounted to .*5872,156,47o,
showing un increase of !$8*'),680,064 compared
with the previous year. The gross receipts
were $52,942,395; the gross working expenses, $36,61u',033; the number of passengers carried was, 13,618,027. These
figures give some small idea of the extent
and importance of our railway interests

Tin Ore in Ontario.
New York, April 4.���The Engineering
and Mining Journal says: News comes of a
discovery of tin ore in the Sudbury district,
the variety and rii hncss of whose mineral
are only beginning to be known. Mr. W.
Thomas Newman, of Toronto, received from
a Sudbury miner specimens of the ore which
were stated to have been taken from a
quartz ledge standing out boldly, several
feet in width. The samples consisted of
several pieces of soft, clear quartz, fairly
filled with pellets of mineral from the size of
grains up to that of a small bean, the
.mineral constituting 20 or 30 per cent of the
vein matter. The crystals or rather fragments, conformed in specific gravity the
other physical characteristics to cassiterite,
or tin oxide, whioh further assay proved
them beyond doubt to be. Tin has not
hitherto found an authenticated plaoe on
the list of Ontario minerals, and if the discovery be confirmed and the ore found in
quantity, a very important addition will be
made to the mineral wealth of Ontario.
Undauntedly He Filed Away.
SEATTLE, April 4.���It leaked out yester-
.day that Samuel Murphy, the big convict
who was seut to the penitentiary on Thursday for burglary, and who hud sawed off his
shackles in jail, aame very near eiving his
jailers anothor surprise within six hours
after the former one was discovered.
At 3 o'clock in the afternoon he was
looked up wearing the heaviest leg irons
procurable. At 10 o'clock he was taken out
to be prepared for the trip to Walla Walla
and it was then found that he had procured
another saw and had already sawed one
three quarter inoh rivet almost entirely off.
He would not tell where the second saw was
and it is svill in the jail. The coat spring of
whioh it waB made would cut up into four
saws, and three are probably retained by
the prisoners.

panlments you have art, devil-may-care-
ism, smoke and even socialism."
His friends were scattered throngh
the long room, and merry greetings were
called out to him, which lie repaid in
kind. The hours passed in sparkling
reminiscences, jests and laughter. Delatole's levity became astcnisi.-��ig, and in
this impudent wag, who soon formed a"
group around himself, there was not a
trace of the cynic, the philosopher, the
serious man of letters. Much that he
said was coarse, but so audaciously humorous it was impossible not to respond.
Tom found himself moved to enthusiasm and laughter. His pulses were
alive; his eyes glistened. Yes, let him
reason as he would, he was attuned to
this reckless brilliancy, this mingling of
wits, this cljtter of defiant freedom aud
spontaneity. Delatole was right. Chance
words hero uud there gave him a new insight into a happy, modern paganism
that filled his brain with imagery. The
witchery, the sweep of it were intoxicating-
He regrettod when 9 o'clock came and
Delatole parted with him to keep an appointment at his club. No word had
been exchanged between the two men
upon tho subject that so nearly concerned them both. Now, as Tom hurried up town the undecided (juostion
danced beforo his eyes, his heart became
suddenly weighted.
Should he east tho old life behind him
utterly and enter upon a new one���free?
He reached Union squaro. It sparkled
in crystal whiteness. The branches patterned on the pavements waved fantastically about his feet as he strode on, his
head down. Passionate indecision went
with him like a wraith in the white rays.
He thought of his enchanted dreaming
of tho night before. Only last nightl
Ah, he had learned much since then.
Had he ever really reasoned or understood before?
' 'Keep yourself unshackled. The man
who enters a race fettered is a fool."
The frosty breeze that whistled past
his ears seemed whispering these words
to him.
His memory flew back to a miserable
childhood spent among the rigors ef a
poor western farm, and ho shuddered.
Only by a hard fight and incredible sacrifice had hiH father saved the money
necessary for his support and education.
Poverty I How he loathed and feared
itl How he had always loathed it! Ingrained in his nature was a love for the
poetry of life, a hatred of the commonplace, and now���let him be careful, lest
by one iil advised step he taste all the
old bitterness again.
The fragrance of the hyacinths in his
coat came to him in the crisp air, so
penetratingly sweet it gave him a heartache���the flowers sho had given him.
With a groan he flung himself into a
seat. ���
"I love her! I love her! And she?
Have I not had the confession in her
eyes���in her kiss? Who has helped me
���who has understood me liko her? How
can I pain lier���how can I leave her?"
For himself, if the reckless ambition
mastering him required it, he could put
love away, blot it from his life, and tho
thought had some of the ecstasy of martyrdom. But Virginia loved hiin, and he
knew it. Tho thought of hurting her
was cruel, and in tho agonized tumult of
tho moment cold drops stood on his
brow. Again as in the morning came
the inward avowal of his own weakness.
Oh, what if Delatole had spoken truly.
and tho sovereignty of love meant tho
enslaving of tho talent ho hud sworn
should make him famous! Then���oh,
then, to what depths his ruined hopes
would fling him! And ho would drag
her with him in his fall, perhaps making
her taste a bitter anguish to which this
younger disappointment was but little.
And tlio other side of tho picture���the
lifo of the art ist purely, the uutrammeled,
easy, earnest life, where great things
would be accomplished���was it not better?
Hours passed in this mute conflict,
Love with dove's eyes first pleaded, then
changed to a fury and scourged him.
Doubt, fear of himself, insatiable ambition, passed in mocking line and with
shadowy lips whispered predictions that
terrified him.
When he rose from the seat, he was
benumbed. The frost seemed to have
made a casing for his heart. The midnight traffic of the town, like the throbbing of massive machinery, swept across
the white silence of tho squaro imperatively rousing him to a sense of action.
Yes, thero lay his world, his life. No
more dreaming. Ho hud dreamed long
enough. Tiie conflict was finished. L.ovo
had received its death wound.
CHAPTER IX
Day by day the breach widened between the life Tom had led and the one
newly opening beforo him. The atelier
had been transformed into an eastern
nest, fragrant, harmonious. He had
given Delatole the money thut paid tho
bills, had also advanced half a year's rent
for the suite and stood hopelessly committed to the agreement.
The hours spent in Chelsea square
were like tho rigor of an unsought penance, but the days drifted on while his
new'home awaited him, and still he
could not find the courage to cut the old
ties. He was in continual antagonism
to his hotter nature. His honest instincts
asserted themselves only to be stifled,
for his decision had been taken, his steps .
aet upon a road that allowed no turning \
back.
Soa fortnight dragged by, bringing
Christmas snow and greens to the town.
Chelsea square was ��� patch of crystal
brightness, the snow undisturbed in the
seminary grounds. The bells in the
ohapel pealed gladly morning, noon and
-Bight,
But the benedictory chimes weie like
���tockery to Virginia. These days, when
���very window and shop gave evidence of
Christmas cheer, were black and cold to
ber. Tom was ohanged. He avoided
her eyes. When left for a moment alone
with her, he relapsed into a constrained
silence. His life became daily more irregular, bis moods more uncertain. The
simplicity that matched hia blue eyes
was slowly vanishing before new, insincere mannerisms.
When Virginia remembered the kiss
that had opened paradise to her, shame
burned her, and her pain changed to
fierce self pontempt. It was the fruit of
a moment's passing impulse with Li; i.
and it had meant ev< rything to her. I.' .*
had forgotten or set aside tlie unfinished
sentence that had shot like a raiubo*.;"
across her life. He had forgotten, and
she had remembered. She had hugged
thetA things to her heart as memories
precinua beyond words, a half spoken
promise of a love that matched her own.
Furious pain, wounded, aching pride,
sometimes mude the defiant little head
droop wearily and a passion of wild sobs
leave her lips in a stifled cry. But only
when sho was alone. Let him come and
go as he pleased, let him hurt her by this
other side of his nature daily revealing
itself more fully, but he must not guess
she had dreamed of that which might
never be hers.
But, oh, to see him, speak to him, and
never by a single giunce mirror the mutiny that kept singing one question in
her brain���"Why���why���why has he
changed?"���this was pain of that cruel
and particular kind that dwarfs in its
penetrating torture the endurance required for largor griefs.
And worse to bear than all was her
father's assumption of a secret understanding existing between them.
"I say, now, you and young Murray
are not quito so indifferent to each other
as you'd have mo believe, aro you?" he
asked her one morning as he liugered
over his paper and cup of chocolate.
"Tom will always be my friend, I
hope," Virginia answered steadily, but
almost inaudibly.
Mr. Kent gave a sharp side glance at
her pale faco and a shrug.
"You don't mean to say there's nothing else? Stuff and nonsense! He was
in love with you, whatever he may be
now. Just before that play of his was
put on, when he was on the tenter hooks
of anxiety, I saw him watching you
many a time. The tender passion re-
vi'.ils itself now just as it did when I
suffered from it, and Tom looked sheepish. I dare say I UBed to look so. I know
my rivals always appeared so to me.
Has anything changed him?"
No word came from Virginia's quivering lips.   No word could come.
"Then you are not secretly betrothed
to him?"
She went hurriedly to her father's side,
and holding his arm tightly looked at
him with dry, burning eyes.
"You must not fancy such a thing. I
am nothing to him. Oh, you wouldn't
speak to him about this, father! You
wouldn't! No; it would loll me if you
did!"
"Speak to him? 17 What are you
talking about? Am I likely to do so?
Do I strike you as that sort of person?
The man who wants to marry my daughter must suo for that honor."
He studied her faco hard for a moment,
and his lips settled into a thin, straight
lino. The tragedy in her dilated eyes
told him the truth, and a haughty anger
against Tom awoke within him. Virginia's love won and thrown away
seemed an insignificant thing beside the
thought that any man should indulge in
desultory lovemaking with his daughter
and then repent of it. His daughter!
There lay the sting that was unbearable.
It was after 8 o'clock that night before
Tom entered the house. Delatole an*1.
ho were to leave for a visit to the south
in the morning. He could no longer
postpone his going. But how to tell
them? How to say goodby? Would Virginia remain his friend? Would she understand? Oh, sho must, she must. He
could not bear to think she would hate
or despise him.
As ho walked slowly up stairs he met
Mr. Kent coming down. Tho old man's
greeting was chilling, but courteous.
Tom drew his breath hard and plunged
into explanations at once. The words
were feverish, rapid���polite regrets for
his necessary departure, mingled with a
recital of his future plans.
Mr. Kent heard him unmoved to the
end.
"I don't wish to bandy any words with
you, Mr. Murray," he said in a calm, colorless tone. "One thing I must say.
however. When I was young, people
did not repay hospitality as you have
done. Pardon me, if you please. Don't
interrupt. Without plunging into stu ���
pid detail I am sure you understand mo.
I will say goodby t * yon now. You cannot go too quickly h > please me. I dare
say you will suocoed. The sensitive and
forbearing man is often left in the background, but men of your stamp, never."
Ho passed down the hull, leaving Tom
hot and indignant. Had Virginia told
him, or did be only guess? It was impossible to retaliate, impossible to tell
this selfish dreamer ho had never been
his guest. Besides tlie words did rankle,
oh, so deeply! for, though uttered from
a partially mistaken sense of wrong,
they were true. He had acted a cowardly part.
His face was worn and reckless as he
turned to the hall window, endeavoring
to'conquer the quivering of his pulses
before facing Virginia.
It had commenced to snow again. He
could hear the students practicing a new
Christmas hymn in the chapel opposite.
In a moment the years spent in the college, so different from his present lift';.
passed in a series of pictures before him,
and with them the thought of all ho owed
Virginia. But for her "The Worlds
Way" would never have been written.
Looking .back, he saw how clearly he;*
companionship had nerved him to continual effort. Hers was the voice thai
had urged him on, hers the dauntless
optimism that had sent a rift of glory
into his darkest days.
An ache rose in his throat; the snow,
in the light from the open chapel door,
whirled mistily before him. Now that
he was actuallv iroimr the thought that

SPRING MILLINERY
IT  WAS   LARGELY  ATTENDED.
We begin this Spring under favorable circumstances, and we are positive, with our experience of the past year, that
we can make it to the advantage of every lady in Nanaimo and District to buy her Millinery from us.
Easter came in so early this year that we required to have our opening on the 15th, 16th and 17th of March, and
during the Season you will find us headquarters for Hats, Bonnets and Flowers.
Among our Pattern Hats you will find exqusite creations of the highest French Art.
There is a great deal of Lace, Ribbon and Feathers used this Season, besides flowers of every kind and color,
among which Roses and Violets predominate.
Skill makes a Stylish Bonn-t of a handful of Flowers, Ribbons, Tinsel Braid and Gold Buckles. It transforms a
little jetted lace, a jet aigrette, a yard or two of velvet ribbon, into a Gem of the Season.
Come to the store and see us. We were told last year that our prices were somewhat too extravagant. This year
we are positive you will find our prices more than reasonable.

The Reform Farce, Act IV.
This morning at 10 o'clock, the fourth act
of the Refoi m Farce will take place at the
Nanaimo polioe court. Among the
witnesses, reported to be under call,
is Mr. Herbert Stanton of the Government
office, who at some time or other is sup
posed to have jocularly accosted one
of the sensitive plaintiffs as an
Anarchist. Another probable witness is Mr,
Beevor Potts, the celebrated English Attor
ney at law, who, it is expeDted, will give
expert evidence as to what, according to his
legal light, constitutes criminal libel; and
who will further demonstrate, according to
his opinion and in his own peculiar manner,
how the plaintiffs were grossly, maliciously,
criminally, snd he might add, indecently libelled, by the now celebrated
squib entitled "A strange coincidence,"
Dp to the present time of writing we are
not aware whether Peanut Charley has been
summonsed or not to also give expert testimony. We cannot reasonably presuppose
how Mr. Potts, with the redeeming
compounded prefix of Beevor, will testify,
or what his line of coloring may be, but we
feel confident that Charley of Peanu'. fame
and celebrity will ullirni impartially nnd see
that The Teleoram will get justice meted
out. As to our accusers, including Messrs.
T. R. E. Mclnnis, Angus MoKenzie and
"many others" we are us unable to physically identify the two particularly named
as we are the generally classed many others.
Doubtless this lack will be shortly supplied
and we shall be able to deal with them from
more points than one. Unless the defendant
"jumps his bail," the farce will occur as
before stated. We have put a call down for
!) a.m., and hope to be present.
