of tlie Radical ii*embers of ll,e House of

Qothn, who, ts the Du e of Kd nburgh, is
one of tbe hereditary law milkers of Great
Biitaiu. Mr. Bytes asked whether Duke
Alfred retained his right as a peer of the
rtaim, since as a German prince he might
have an ulterior motive for the re\idion, rejection or approval of hills passed by the
House of Commons. Mr. Gladstone replied
tbat the question was ono that must be determined by the House of Lords itself, that
house being the judge of the qualifications
of its own members. Mr. Robert Bruce,
Liberal, demanded that the terms of the
oath taken by Duke Alfred aa a German
sovereigu be produced in the House. Sir
Edwara Grey, Parliamentary Secretary of
the F r.ign OSice, replied that the o**py of
the oath would be produced.

How tho Majesty of the Law is Uphold
in the Czar's Domains.
BERLIN, Jan 2 ���In November last the
Vossischt Zeitumj ol this oily published a
story from Kovne, the capital of the government of that name in Russia, stating that
the Imperial authorities, who of course are
members of Ihe Greek church, had ordered
that the Ruman Catholic church at Krosche
in that government be closed. With the
purpose, it was said, of preventing the
order from being carried out, a large number
of Catholics took possession of ihe church
ami a dospera'e conflict resulted. Twenty
of the Catholics were said to have beeu
Idled wi'.b snoida or lances, while one
hundred were reported to have been wounded, Those who were unhurt or only slightly
injured fled from the church, putsued by
the Cossacks, who drove them into a river,
where many of 1 hem were drowned. The
orthodox peasants were said to have aided
in * h * maesscre.
Shortlj after the publication of the story
the Russian papers cameout with an i I'1 tl
version of ttie affair. Aocording to these
papers the czar hud  ordered  the churoh to

in tie mai.ifisto of yeslerday, had been
altered and prtnti d iu falailied copies. He

DECLARED   A   HOAX.
Mr. Davie Unaware That the Unemployed
at   East    Wellington    Were   to   Have
Work From tho Government.
Viotoria, Jan.  2,���A Colonist reporter
happened to find Hon   N*r. Davie at the At-
torney-Oeneral'a nllice yeBterday  afternoon
and asked him "What,   is  the nature of the!
be ole.s-nl in order that an agricultural college might be built on the site. The Catholics objeoted to the order and declined to
let it be executed, The governor and three
companies of Cossacks then forcibly closed
the church doors and an encounter between
the military and police on oue side and the
Catholics on the other followed. Four policemen were slightly wounded. Theoffioial
statement branded the story of a massacre
of the Catholics us a pure invention.
The Colognt Gazeltt a few days ago said
it did not credit the official denial and
claimed to know that the story of the
massacre was true. 'To-day the Volks Zei-
littit.l publishes mail advices from Krosche,
bearing out in every particular the firat,
story of the killing of the Catholics. It
adds that the Cossacks displayed the greatest barbarity and lo*��k a fiendish delight in

Mayor Haslam reported that he had attended to the case of destitution on Haliburton street and that the family had not
had any help from the corporation for a
week, the neighbors helping the family as
much as they could.
Aid. Quennell said he had heard that the
tiiitu had been offered a position on a sealing
schooner as cook at $100 a month if he went
without a cabin boy and $75 if he had one;
and that he would not take it as his wife
did not wish him to leave. He thought
that if it was the case that the man had refused work when offered him, it was hardly
neceasaiy fur the corporation to assist him.

Aid Nightingale said that he believed the

A Letter From Mr. Davie.
KD1TOR  Tlt-SQHili:
Sir,���I was muoh pleased with your report of my remarks in chief upon the occasion of the recent public meeting at Nanaimo, but the report of my reply is not so excellent. I ask leave to make a few correc
tions, and to add some explanations, which
are not given.
I said that the policy of the  Government,
since Mr. Smithe took office in 1883, was to
tax unimproved, and unproductive lands, aa
an example of which, I   instanced   Iracts of
country land   adjacent   to   Victoria, which
although not coming under   the   denomina
tion ot wild lands were unoccupied   and un
productive, and which before the   advent of
the Smithe Government were taxtd   upon a
value of $50 per   acre   only,   and   are now
taxed at a value as high as $7oil.    I  also instanced the fact that tho   Government   had
increased the wild land tax from 5   cents to
7-J cents per acre.    I said   that   whether an
an! valorem tax, or a direct tax, of   bo much
per acre, was a mere matter  of   detail; but
that the Government   was   responsible   for
initiating the   principle   of   high   taxation
upon this class of land before ever tho Inde-
pendeots (so calling themselves) were  heard
of; that they had advocated a change, which
the   Government   had   adopted,   from  the
direct tax of 7.J, cents per   acre   upon   wild
land   to   an   ail   valorem   tax���hut  that I
doubted whether  the   new   plan   produced
more revenue than the old.    1 corrected Mr.
Foster's statement that   "the   Chief   Commissioner      of     -Lands       aud        Works
had      changed      the     Land       Act      by
making the  period   of   a pre-e'mptor's residence  ten   months instead   of six months,
and that a man oould nol posaibly live on  a
ranch ten months in the year and make   his
living on it."    I had not the Land Act with
me at the time, and my correction  was  uot
as full as it might havebeen.    So   far   from
what Mr. Foster stated as being the case, it
was the old law which required a ten months'
residence, unleBS with   leave   of   the   commissioner, and even  with   such   leave,   the
settler eould be absent only four   montfiB in
any one year.    It is true that   the   Government changed this state of the law,   but   it
was a change decidedly in the interest of the
homestead settler, for it extended the period
of leave which the commissioner   (Mr. Bray
for instance), not   the   chief   commissioner,
might grant, from four to six   months,  and
moreover provided that in cases of illness or
of immigrant   settlers  returning  to   their
former homes to bring their families to their
homesteads the Chief Commissioner of Landa
and Works migh- grant u si ill   further   extension of time.    So you will   see that   the
foot is the very opposie of what Mr. Foster
stated.    Regarding 'he publio  buildings  at
Victoria, what I said was   that   they   were
situate right at the gateway of the province,
aud would furnish an index to the   stability
and prosperi'y of the province; that to erect
mere cheap and oommou place  buildings  as
advocated by Mr. Foster w uld be to give a
poverty stricken appearance  to   the   whole
province.     Mr.   Kith   insinuated   at   the
meeting that the members   of  the   Government had erected a 875,000   bridge at   New
Westminster to benefit the private property
of Mr.   Punch,   M.P.P.,   a   $411,000   court
house at Vancouver for  the   advantage   of
Mr. Home's, M.P.P., private   property   in
the   neighborhoi d,   and   bad   erected   the
Parliament buildings at Victoria  to  benefit
their own property.    Mr.   Keith also   went
on to say that he supposed that the Government thought the Nanaimo   members   were
honest, and could not be   bribed.    What   I
said in reference   to  this   wholesale   statement     was   that   I     had     always     taken
Mr.   Keith   and   Mr.   Foster   for    honest
men, and   still   believed   them   to   be  so,
but that men who paraded their own honor,
and cast slime upon the characters of others
were always opeu  to suspicion.    1  showed
that so far   from   Nanaimo   being   made a
mere suburb of Victoria, as  stated by  Mr.
Keith, in Supreme Court matterB, that such
had been the policy of the government of
the opposition, who at the time the Smithe
government took power had   passed   an   act
abolishing the  office of  county  court judge
at Nanaimo,and requiring all the work.hoth
supreme and county court, to  he done by a
judge   from   Victoria.    I shewed   that the
present party, had restored to Nanaimo her
county court judge, had  passed  au  act  by
which the county  court judge  could be invested   with   power to  dispatch   Supreme
Court   work, and   were   now   preparing  a
minute-in-eouncil    under   which   Nanaimo
will be made a separate judicial district,and
Supreme Court   work done there  indepenel-
ently of Victoria.    1 did not say that  since
the Esquimalt and Nanaimo railway charier
not a single railway grant,  had   been  given
with a perpetual freedom from taxation.    I
did not say that there  was  perpetual  freedom from taxation even   with   these  lands.
The lands are exempt  from   taxation   until
Bold, leased,   alienated, or   used  otherwise
than for railway  purposes.    I   said  that  a
similar immunity from taxation  would  not
be given uOW-adayBJ that is, of course, for a
similar   lino,  connect ing   as   it   does   two
cities, by less   than -SO miles   of   road.     Nor
indeed for sny local line.     With these, free
dom from   taxation   should be for a limited
time only.  Take for instance the land grant
to   the   Canadian   Pacific   railway   for the
Columbia and Kootenay road, to the Nelson
and Fort Sheppard road, and  others  which
might be named; the immunity   from   taxation is for five years only.    The caae of  the
Canada Western is (aa I explained) a different cas?.    That is to  be a   transcontinental
railway,     and      there     would     be     no
hop" of advancing  such a gigantic  project,
involving the expenditure of millions, if you
told the  people you were   inviting to  put
their money into it, tint you were, after a
few yours, going to tax   them upon millions
of acres of land   which   was   not returning
them a dollar of revenue.  I instanced the case
of the Canadian Pacific transcontinental line
where lands were granted   free of taxation,
in much tbe same way  aa  were the Esquimalt  k   Nanaimo  railway   lands, and the
same  as  the  Canada  Western.    1  shewed
that whatever  other   complaints  are made
against, the Canadian   Pacific  Railway, we
never heard   them   blamed   for  locking up
their lands     With the Canada Western the
grant is to be made  them   in  alternate sections,   the   Government   having   a  section
alongside every section of  theirs.    As with
the Canadian Pacific   bo   with the Canada
Western, their escape  from  a bonded debt
which would swamp  them  must largely depend upon the facility with  which they can
turn their lands into   money, and   for this
purpose their  only  hope is by instituting a
liberal land policy, at least as liberal as that
of the Government which  owns  the adjoining lands. Theodore Davie.

they must put in power men of patriotic
feeling���men who will have some regard for
British power and prestige, and also for
British industries, rather than those of
France, Belgium, and Germany; who for
example will place contracts for supplies of
tiie British army aud navy in British hands,
not in those of foreigners, the work to be
done by British workmen, and who in their
trade policy with foreign nations will make
fair trade, ralher than free trade, their
motto and their rule. Till this is dor.e it
will be vain, we think, to expect that the
.strength of Great Britain's navy will be
maintained at tbe point of safety, or that
the prosperity of the mother country will be
restored. Under Gladstonian and Radical
rule Great Britain need not be expected lo
be either safe or prosperous.

OUR TRADE POI.lCi.
The bottom seems to have fallen out of
free trade in England, as badly as it has
fallen out of high protection in tha United
States. Canada's trade system, which is a
system of moderate protection, seems to be
safer Ihan either the extreme free system of
England, or the high protection system
which under the McKinley tariff was established in the United States. At all events
the system established in Canada under the
national policy suited the country well.
Canada generally was prosperous under it,
the revenue flourishing, work steady, and
wages good, Uuiada in fact is at present
far more prosperous than either the mother
country or the United States. Tbe Government propose shnrity to remodel the tariff.
This will uo doubt be done next session of
Parliament. Tlie changes made will be in'he
direction of free trade, a [general lowering of
the tariff: hut ��od** not, think that a free
trade tariff, i - , ���. lariff for revenue only on
the Britiah model, " ill '"* established either
in this country nr the United States, The
essential features of the national policy,
under which Canada on the whole has p os-
pered, will 1*- mnini 1, That is, although thei" will he a considerable reduction of duiies at present levied 'on most
classes of imported goods, vet a system of
moderate protection will continue to be
maintained, sufficient at once to provide a revenue tor government, and
Lo afford reasonable protection to
native industry. This is in fact essential.
A revenue must be provided or Ihe work of
governmeut could not. be carried on, justice
administered, or the interest, on the public i
debt paid, Tttere roust be reasonable protection to native industry, or the money invested in various industries under the na-
tional policy would be mostly lost, thousands of workmen now employed in our
factories would be thrown idle on the
streets, and want and misery spread fat and
wide all over the land. This would be the
inevitable result of the establishment, of a
free trade system pure and simple. Free
trade is, therefore, out of the question at
present, and probably will be for many a
long year to come, no nutter which party is
placed in power. Electors should *��� nsid *
thiB, and act accordingly. They should
support the men who promise to give native
industry reasonable protection, to raise the
necessary revenue, and to maintain the
public oredit. They should turn a deaf ear
to those free Irade cranks, who, regardless
alike of the public revenue and of native industries, would establish free trade on the.
British model, a system which -just *uow has
broken dovVn in Great Britain, and whioh is
bringing want and misery to many a British
borne. Bxtfeme protectionists, too, should
not be listened to, men who Would sau, dice
the interests of every class io those of one
class alone, Let us maintain a system nf
moderate protection, as the one lust suited
to the requirements of the country, nod let
us keep in power the men who promise
that system and who give it t���, us T* Ins

The following item, taken from tbe
Weekly Sent-.man, has been banded to us by
Mr. Thomas Wilson, late of the SeotB
Guards:
Tbe regimen', which this year can lay
claim lo hiving the greatest number of tall
men in at: individual oompany, a correspondent writes us, ie the First Battalion Scots
Guards at Chelsea Barracks, London, (Colo-
nel Bitrington-Bulkely Campbell's command), "A,'' or right Hank company of ihat
battalion. Colonel I. R. Jones has at the
present time 03 men on his roll, the tallest
of whom slightly exceeds six feet Be en
inches. There are twelve men standing
over 3ix feet four inches, and no individual
man of the 93 is below six feet. The average height of tho company is given ar six
feet two und one quarter inohes. This average, it is said, eclipses the tallest company in the Grenadier Guards, that known
ns the I'Queen's" Company, and whioh hitherto bore the repute of being the flower of
the army. Colonel Campbell is himself a typical Scotsman and displays considerable
interest in the purity of his command.
When the Marquis of Tweeddale was Lord
High Commissioner, Colonel Campbell was
one of his suite. He is a younger brother of
Lord BlythBWood, who, loo, was a colonel in
the Scoib Guards The Scots Guards at the
preteat time are an exceptionally line body
of men. They B.re the only corps privileged
to recruit, all over Scotland; and althuugi it
was recently stated by the War Ottiee that
the standard for the Brigade of Guards had
been raised to five feet nine inches, for the
last, twelve months the recruiting authorities
in Edinburgh have no' enlisted a nun below
that meaaurment, The battallion is 884
strong, the great majority of whom are
Sootsment. At its depot .">(5 choice recruits
are in course of training, which makes the
battalion 35 men oyer Its authorised estab-
ment. Colonel Campbell when oil leave
frequently rosides in East Lothian, where
two years ago, ;t may he remembered, he
saved the life "f u b .y from drowning while
'ishiiiL' in the Tyne,
IS   YOUR   LIFE   INSURED?
A PO'IOY OP LIFE ASSURANCE is the Cheapest and Safest mode of making ii certain provision for one's
family. It is a strange anomaly that men should be careful to insure their houses, their furniture, their ships, their merchandise, and yet neglect to insure their lives���surely the most important of all to their families, and far more subject to Iobs.
The Great West Life Assurance Oompany offers an exceptionally favorable Policy, at. low
rates, the security being proportionately as good as the older companies.

from Mr. Davie, in whioh he makes some
explanatory remarks regardii g our rep r*
of his reply to tie Bpeeebes of Mes t��. Foster, Keith and MuK<��' v.-c It will lie neon
that Mr. Davie considers onr report of his
main speeoh excellent, but that bethinks
our report of his reply not so good. The
fact is *hat the reporter oi Tin*. Teleoram
was absent during a portion of the time
that Mr. Davie was replying to Messrs. Foster, Keith and McKenzie, and our report ot
that part of Mr. Davie's remarks was not so
complete as we eould have wished. We are
glad, however, to be assured on such excellent authority that our report of Mr. Davie's
main speech was entirely satisfactory. Indeed we endeavored to do justice to all the
speakers, and to place their addresses as

The Gladstone government, is not in an-y
particular hurry about strengthening the
navy. The Admiralty's plans are still
under consideration. It does not seem
likely that the present government will do
much in the matter. They have a big deficit
to meet, and there is an alarming falling off
in the revenue. If the British people want the
fleet to be maintained at its proper strength,
and prosperity to be restored to the country,

WELLINGTON   ITEMS.
About the only events on New Yeai'**" day
in Wellington   were   two or three   private
parties.
The band played several Relations on
New Year's day on Victoria nvenue bridge.
John B cklo treated the boys to the ciyars
in acknowledgment of their turn ful lays.
New Year's day w**s ushered in at Wellington with a joyful din of guns, pistols,
superannuated coal oil cans and all oilier
noise making instruments human ingenuity
could extemporise for the mopien's' service.
A Wellington resident shot himself in the
hand with u revolver while helping celebrate
the New Year's birth. Fortunately, the
pistol wi'.s ii small one, so thai uo very serious injury resulted, though of course, the
injure'!, hund will be useless for a little
time.
Lawyer Vidler was put *-,|T lhe train at
Esquimalt station on New Year's day. Ho
had presenter! Mr. Townsend,th*. conductor,
with nn expireil ticket, which was refused
and his fare requested. Ho asked to be allowed to proceed ou hiB journey and arrange
matters afterwards. Conduolor Townsend
said it, would be ugiiinst his ordets to do so
and politely asked Mr. Vidler to get. ofT,*md
upon his refusal to do so, the conductor
ordered the brakeman to put bim off. Mr.
Vidler resisted and clung so tenaciously to
the hand rail that the brakeman gave him
au e*j(tra push, which precipitated him to
the ground. Mr, Vidler threatens to have
Mr. Townsend arrested for assault. Mr.
Townsend says be was very sorry to have to
put Mr. Vidler off, but his duty had to be
done. ,

was drowned at Nine Mile river, on the

Joseph Willinins, he was going to visit

tempting to jump across a gulch in the
beach he missed his footing and fell
into the raging surf below, w linn
he was soon stunned among the

to save him, but the violence of the sea
baffled his efforts to drag the unfortunate

Tattooing Young New Zeuliindors.
A New Zealand  boy of 15 I:.-,  his faro
nearly covered with tattooing. The N w
Zealanders tattoo the facoand hands, lint
very   rarely   touch   the  body,     Their
metho ! oi tati ioing is pi inlitir ind di   ts
from thai of any other tropical country.
The work of tattooing is done  with  al
sharply   pointed instrument,  which is
dipped first in   a colored    fluid.   The1
point of the instrument is placed on thel
face and  is driven into the skin   by a
sharp blow from a piece of wood.   This
ir repeated again ami again until the
tattooing is done,   The process makes
the skin very sore and only a little ran'
be done at a time.   The New Zealanders'
tattoo in rings.   And th   girls are even'
more   gorgeously decorated   than  thel
boys.   Tattooing ii nearly always done
before the boys and girls have complete i
their growth, so thai  the colored pigment becomes firmly i sod in the texture
of the skin.    New York Ledger.

THE QUESTION DECIDED.
Tne Northfield Miners Will Continue to
Work The Proposed Reduction Accepted by Secret Ballot.
At the miners' mats meeting at lhe Oper*.
House ou Tueeday morning, Mr. MeCuUb in
the chair, Mr. Wilson, secretary of the
Miners and Mine Laborers' Protective Association read the following:
V our committee be�� leave lo report tha
acconlii g to your instructions we have in
terviovveci the management, and made a
thorough examination of tho different itemH
of expense attached to the production of
Ooal at the Northfield mine. We ha\e to
report that lhe examination proved conclusively that the contentious of the com-
pnuj are correct. Ou comparing the statements of the oompany wiih lhe calculations
roughly made by the Noithtield miners, we
Bud that the miners failed to lake or make
allowance for several important items,
principally the waste of coal from the weight
paid for at pit head and the amount at
shipping point. Finding that nothing more
could be done in this respect your committee
then endeavored to have the management
modify the sc.ile or proposition alieady presented. In this they were partially mccess-
ful. The slight modification referred to
will he explained by the Northfield com
mittee. The management wishes it distinctly understood thai the scale of prices
proposed at Northlield have no reference or
effect to auy other part of the company's
work." The report was signed by the
members of the committee: Tully Boyce,
Thomas Dawson, Thomas Keith, Ri*:hard
Booth, Neil McCuish, W. F. Flynn, J.
Horrobin, Joseph L,ygo, Arthur Wilson.
Mr. Flynn on beiins; asked, explained the
scale as modified.
T. Shenanty asked if the decisiou was to be
made now, or left to another fuller representative meeting?
T. Keith, M.P.P., believed that the meeting should be more fully representative and
moved au adjournment; carried by a majority of :i0. The meetint; then adjourned till
2 p. m.
On the resumption of the meeting at 2
o'clock in the afternoon, Mr. Nelson, secretary Mine and Miners' Labor Protective
Association again read the report of the
commit',*! e presented in the morning.
Mr. Flynn then read the scale and the
proposed modification in the reductiou, aud
explained the effect upon the wages of the
different employees by the said reduction.
W. Keith moved that as the committee's
report had heen read that the committee be
discharged aud the acceptance or rejection of
the proposal be decided. Cartied by a vote
of 37 to 12.
A speaker said that Nanaimo miners
should not vote on this subject, but only the
Northfield men.
Mr. McCuish believed that the question
Bhould be discussed, but would like the
Northfield men to explain the difference lhj
modification of the company's proposition
made to them.
Flynu explained that the modification affected some men differently to others and
said that in their calculations several things
had been left out. From the company's books
they were convinced that the Northfield
mine wus not a paying concern. He also set
forth the consequences of the rejectiou of
the proposition.
Moved aud seconded Ihat a secret ballot
be held as to whether the proposition be accepted or rejected.
A speaker said Ihat he could not see how
the Nauaimo meu oould vote ou this subject. The Northfield men should decide as
they knew more of the matttr,being directly
affected by it.
Mr. McCuish said the matter was now in
he hands of the district.
Mr. Jones did not see how they could tea
sonab'y cast a vote for the colliery to stand
and believed that as regarding district prices
the only place where the price lnd any fixed
scale was al the New Vancouver colliery.
Mr. McKi'gan said the matter would not
be improved by discussion and it should be
decided by a conscientious vote.
McCuish asked if the question waB a district question or uot, as if it was a district,
question it affected eveiy miner there as
much as the Northfield men.    [Applause..]
Harry Carrol explained that a stranger at
the mines would not understand the workings. The matter was clear enough for
them all to vote upon it.
T. M. Boyce Baid that before the question
was ballolted for it should be understood
what the result would be. The after re
suits would have lo be considered. If accepted a certain uumber of men working
for the New Vancouver Coal Company
would be working for a lower rate of wages
and in case of rejection there would be so
many men of the New Vancouver Coal
Company out of work.
XV. Keith believed tbat the meeting was
prepared to vote on the question. Now was
the time to decide and if they voted for the
shut down, they were prepared to help the
Northlield men.
Mr. Dawson explained that the result,
would he a matter for the district und that
they should vote un their opinions. If they
did not vote at all they would do no good to
the men���they should vote whichever way
they thought; if for them to work, then
when things got better then they could
meet again and sec if they could not get,
matters improved again. Every man should
vote either for or anaiust and every man
that did not do so would be declared out o'f
order.    [Applause and laughter.]
Mr. Booth had studied the matter very
carefully for a month. He sympathized with
the Northfield men and drew attention to
the serious question that was to be decided
on. He hoped that all those who intended
to vote would well consider the subject be-
they voted either way.
Neil McCuish then put the  motion  for a
secret ballot to the   meeting.    The   m* "
carried.
A secret ballot was then taken, the result
being ).r)5 in favor of the acceptance of the
reduction and 109 against it, a majority for
acceptance of 46.
The district officers of the MinerBandMine
Laborers Protective Association were next
voted for, the result being that Dawson was
elected president, Flynn, vice-president,
Milburne, distriot secretary, and Weeks,
district treasurer. The mooting then Adjourned.

Football on New Year's.
In the Association football match al
Northfield on Monday afternoon between
the Nanaimo Swifts ami the Northfield
team, the Nanaimo boys came away victorious In the first half ihe Swif's played a
good game throughout, scoring four goals
lo nothing iu spite of the efforts of the
Northfield learn, who did their utmost to
defend their goal. In the -second half, the
wind beiug favorable, the Northfield men
succeeded in scoring two goals to their opponents' zero, hut did not manage to reach
the score already made by tho Nanaimo
boys, who thus became easy victors by a
score of 6 to 2. In lhe evening theSwiftB
wero tendered a banquet by the Northfield
team, which everybody enjoyed and during
which, in recognition of the interest he had
taken and help supplied in football, the

willing lo play any junior team at auy time.
The Rugby football match on the swamp

ing it and followiug with interest the many
exciting turns that took place, both sides
constantly bring ou the \erge of scoring but
for the excellent defensive play. The result
of next Saturday's match is looked forward

THE FOUR PLOTTERS.
By JTemmp K. Jerome.
An Koon lis I panned from inv sport he
rose ami in ..���!���' his uianusci'ijn .fuin the
table I*.in n m two and i.j *,;t in the
fire���he was bnt a very yon      ..Tun, you
must iv11 ��� nber���an , .. <  uniiug be-
iini* uu* wi; u a win,.* i,.iu. ne-told tne
uiisulkiU'ii his opinion of nie and my
art. Alter which double event it is perhaps needless to say we parted in hot
anger,
I did not aee him again for years.
The streets of life are very crowded,
and if we lose each other's hands we are
soon hui tied far apart. Wlien I next
did nieei bim it was by urviili'iit.
I had left the Whitehall rooms after a
public dinner, anil, glad of the cool
night air. was strolling home by the Embankment. A man, slouching along
under the trees, paused as I overtook
him.
"You couldn't oblige me with a light,
could you, gnvenor*!" he said. The
voice sounded strange, coming from the
figure that it did.
I struck a match, and held it out to
���him, shaded by my hands. As the faint
built illumined his face I started back
and let the match fall.
"Harry!"
He imiwered with a short dry laugh.
"1 didji't know it was you," he said, "or
I shouldn't have stopped yon."
"How has it come to this, old fellowf"
I asked, hiving my hand upon his shoulder. His coat was unpleasantly greasy,
and I drew my hand away as quickly as
I could, and tried to wipe it covertly
upon my handkerchief.
HO, it's a long story," he answered,
carelessly, "and too conventional to be
worth telling. Some ot us go up, you
know. Some of us go down. You're
doing pretty well, I hear."
"I suppose so," [ replied. "I've climbed a few feet up a greasy pole, and am
trying to stick there But never mind
me, it is of you I want to talk. Can't I
do anything for you, Harry?"
We were passing under a gas-lamp at
the moment. He thrust his face forward close to mine, and the light fell
full and pitilessly upon it.
"Do 1 look like a man you eould do
anything fort" he said.
We walked on in silence side by side,
I casting about for words that might
seize hold of bim.
"You needn't worry about me," he
continued after a while, "I'm comfortable enough. We take life easily down
here where I am. We don't have any
disappointments."
"Why did you give up like a weak
coward?" I burst out angrily. "You had
talent. You would have won with ordinary perseverance."
"Maybe,"he replied, in the same even
tone of indifference. "I suppose (hadn't
the grit. I think if somelio ly hud believed in me it might have helped me.
But nobody did. and at last I lo.jt belief
in myself. And when a man lo.;es that,
he's like a balloon with the nr.s let out."
I listened to his words in indiuiuation
and astonishment. "Nobody believed
in you?" I repeated, "Why, I always
believed in you, you know that .   I "
Then 1 paused, remembering our "candid criticism" of one auother.
"Did yon?" he replied quietly. "I
never heard you say so.    Good night."
In the course of our Strand -ward walking we had come to the neighborhood of
the Savoy, and as he spoke he disappeared down one of the dark turnings
thereabouts.
I hastened after him, calling him by
name, but though 1 heard his quick steps
before me for a little way, they were
soon swailowed up in the the sound of
other steps, and when I reached the
square in which the cljapel stands I had
lost all trace of him.
A policeman was standing by the
churchyard railing, and of him I made
inquiries.
"What sort of a gent was he, rirT"
questioned the man.
"A tail, thin gentleman, very shabbily
dressed���might be mistaken for a
tramp."
"Ah, sir. there's a good many of that
sort living in this town," he replied. "I
am afraid you will have some difficulty
in finding bun."
Thus for a second time had I heard
his footsteps die away, knowing that I
should never listen for their drawing
near again.
I wondered as I walked on���I have
wondered before and since ��� whether
Art, even with a capit; 1 A. i.- quite
worth all the suffering that is inflicted
in her behalf��� whether she and we are
better fur all the scorning and the sneering, all the envying and the hating that
is done iu her name.
Jephson arrived about II o'oltxsk in the
ferryboat. We wero made acquainted
with this fact by having on, heads

Somebo ly or other always hid their
head bumped when ver tlie . ri'V * oat
arrived. It was a, heavy and o.umuer-
some machine, and tbe fi���:*;** ���*'".' was
not a good punter, He auunued this

But In* made no attempt to i : >-..-,

His nn *. h,i.l was to a.-ruuge the ) ���
fore starting in a line with the *oi.rt
towards which he wished to proceed,
and then lo push hard, without ever
looking behind him, untilsonieti uos the
bunk, so in nines another beat, occasionally a s.eauier, from six ton loze'i tunes
a day our riparian dwelling. That he
never succee.led in staving the bout in,
speaks highly for tho man who bunt her.
One day be came down upon ns with
a tremendous crash. Auienda, our domestic, wus walking down tlie passage at
the moment, and the result to her was
that she r*ceived a violent blow first on
the lett side of her head aud then on the
right.
Sho was accustomed to aocept one
bump as a matter of course, and to regard it us un intimation from the boy
that he bad come; but this double knock
annoyed her. so much "style" was out
of place in a mere ferry-boy. Accordingly, she went out to him in a state of
high indignation.
"What do you think you are?" she
cried, balancing accounts by boxing his
ears first on one side and then on the
other. "A torpedo? What are you doing here at all?   What do you want?"
"I don't want uothin'," explained the
bov, rubbing his head. "I've brought
a gent down."
"A gent?" said Amenda.lookinground.
but seeing no one.    "What gent?"
"A stout gent in a straw 'at," answered the boy, staring round him bewilder-
edly.
"Well, where is he?" asked Amends.
"I dunno," replied the boy in an awed
voice; '"e was a standin' r'vie at the
Other end oftiiopuur. asm** ..oa cigar."
Just then a head iqipeHf aoove the
water, and *i spent but iiifuri.ited swimmer str.i,..i *.l up between tne houseboat
and th-* Manic.
"0, tli-i'i- eis!" cried the boy delightedly, evidently much relieved in his
mind at this satisfactory solution of the
mystery; '"e must ha' tumbled off the
punt."
"You're quite right, my lad, that's
just what he did do, and there's your
fee for assisting him to do it." Saying
which my dripping friend, who had now
scrambled upon deck, leaned over and,
following Amends's excellent example,
expressed his feelings upon tho boy's
head.
There was one comforting reflection
about the transaction as a whole, and
that wus that the ferry-boy had at last
received a lit and proper reward for Jiis
services. I had often felt inclined to
give him something of the same sort myself. I think he wns, without exception, the most clumsy and stupid boy I
have ever come across, and that is say-
'ing a good deal.
His mother undertook that for three
and sixpence a week he should "make
himself generally useful" to us for a
couple, of hours every morning.
Those were the o'd lady's very words,
and I repeated them to Amenda when I
introduced the boy to her.
"Thisis James, Amenda," I said: "he
will come down here every morning at 7
snd bring us our milk and the letters,
snd from then till 0 he will make himself generally useful."
Amenda took stock of him.
"It will be a change of occupation tot
him, sir," she remarked.
After that, whenever some more than
usually stirring crash or blood-curdling
bump would cause us to leap from our
seats and cry: "What on earth has happened?" Amenda would reply: "O, its
only James, mum, making himself generally useful."
Whatever he lifted he let fall; whatever he touched he upset; whatever he
came near���that was not a fixture���he
knocked over; if it was a fixture it
knocked him over. This was not carelessness; it seemed to be a natural gift.
Never in his life, I am convinced, had
he carried a bucketful of any bing anywhere without tumbling over it before
he got there. One of his duties was to
water the flowers on the roof. Fortunately���for the flowers���nature tbat sum-
nier stood drinks with a lavi.-iniess sufficient to satisfy the lnpstoo.l.'ll'Wed vegetable toper; otherwise ev"i*y ji ant on
our boat would have died from Or* ig'ut,
Never one drop of water di . ihe.. ,* ceive
from him. He was forever f.ti dug them
water, but he never arrived th ���:* * with
it. As a rule he upset the pail before
he got it on the boat at all, a id this was
the best, thing that could happen, because then the water supply went back
into the river, and did no harm to any
one. Sometimes, however, he would
succeed in lauding it, and then the
chances were that lie would spill it over
the deck or into the passage. Now and
nirnin he would get half way up the
ladder before the accident ocenrred.
Twice he nearly reached tbe top. and
once he actually did gain the roof. What
happened up there on that memorable
occasion will never be known. The boy
himself, when picked up, could explain
nothing. It is supposed that he lost his
head with tlie pride of the achievement,
and essayed feats that neithS." his
previous training nor his n.i'.ural abilities justified him in attempting. However that may be, tho fact remains that
the main body of the water came down
the kitchen chimney, and that the boy
and the empty pail arrived together on
deck before they knew they had started.
When he could find nothing else to
damage he would go out of his way to
upset himself. He could not be sure of
stepping from his own punt on to the
boat with safety, As often as uot he
would catch his foot iu the ci ain or the
punt-hole ami arrive on his chest.
Amenda used to condole with him.
"Your mother ought to be ashamed of
herself," 1 heard her tolling him one
morning; "she could never have taught
you to walk. What you want is a go-
cart."
He was a willing lad, but his stupidity
was supernatural, A comet appeared
in the sky that year and everybody was
talking about it. One day' he said to
me:
"There's a comet coming, ain't there,
sir?" He talked about the thing as
though it were a circus.
"Coming!" I answered. *^t's oome.
Haven't you seen it?"
"No. sir."
"0, well, you'll have a look st it tonight.    It's worth seeing."
"Yeos, sir, ! should like toseeil lfi
got a tail, ain't it. sir?"
"Yes. a very fine ' ill."
"Yees, sir, they .aid it 'ad a tail.
Where do you go lo see it, sir?"
"Oo! You don't waul to go anywhere.
You'll see it in your own garden at 10
o'clock."
He thanked me, and, tumbling over a
sack of potatoes, plunged head foremost
into his punt and departed.
Next morning I asked him if he had
seen the comet.
"No, sir. 1 couldn't see it anywhere."
"Did you look?"
"Yees, sir.    I looked a long time."
"How on earth did you manage to
miss it, then?" I exclaimed; "It was a
clear enough night. Where did you
look?"
"In our garden, sir. Where you told
me."
"Whereabouts in the garden?" chimed
in Amenda, who happened to be standing by; "under tlie gooseberry bushes?"
"Yees���everywhere."
That is what he had done; ho had
taken the stable lantern and searched
the garden for it.
But the day when he broke even his
own record for foolishness " happened
about three weeks later. Mae.haug-
nassy was Btayiug with us at the time,
and on the Friday ev mi..; ho mixed us
a salad according to a recipe givu i him
by his sunt. On the Saturday morning
everybody was, of course, v ��� y ill.
Everybody always is very ill, after par-
taking of any dish prepared by Atac-i
Shamruassy. Some people atte.npt to
explain this fact by talking glibly of
"cause and effect." M.-n Sh.iigiiassy
claims that it is simply coincidence.
"How do you know," he says,   "that
