Boston, Mass. Jan. 21.���In response to
an invitation from many prominent Irish-
American citizens of this city, the Hon.
Edward Blake, MP. spoke in the Music
Hall upon lhe prusent state cf the Home
Rule for Ireland. The hall wus tilled with
an enthusiastic audience. Mr. Blake was
received with round after round of applause
and as he proceeded with his address, he
wiih frequently interrupted by loud expressions of approval
The Names of Parnell and Gladstone
were graded with applause. Mr. Blake,
after reviewing the events which had happened in Iris'i polities since lie spike in
Boston a year ago, confine,l'biuue i principally to a discussion of the provisions and
ebjects of the Home Rule bill and the autonomous features of the measure. He declared
that there need be no fear that the opposition of the Lords would prove a permanent
barrier to Home Rule. The wisest of them
do not pretend that they will have auy right
to disregard the measure when it shall be
brought forward by the oountry again. The
reason why the bill would not be
introduced again in this parliament
and    before     an    election    was,     because
The Lords Would Promptly Rojeot It
uutil it had been determined by the people
at a general election. Ag-iin, one reason
why immediate dissolution is not demanded
ia, h*..eause m*;h a dour e is favored by the
Opposition. Then too, the Liberals aud
Radical who did their duty by the bill have
other measures in hand, which their allies,
the Irish Nationalists, must respect and
aid.
As Parnell In 1881 Prodleted,
the suffrage has been widened and the alliance with the British Demooracy demands
our fealty. If we should refuse to assist in
their reforms, should we deserve their help
iu bringing about Home Rule for Ii .,��inl';
The speaker then elaborated the propositions
of the Home Rule Bill which need not he
recounted, and emphasized the advantages.
Referring to "Castle" contrcj lfi the rural
districts, he said that in five Counties having a population of
6*80,000 Roman Catholics
and 78,000 protestants, there were two Roman Catholic grand jurors and 114 protestants. Irish Nationalists intend first, to
settle their own differences, to maintain so
long as the Liberals and Radicals are faith
ful to the pledges the alliance whioh Mr
Parnell formed with these two par ies. We
will co-operate with them but will not iden
tify ourselves with them. In ro elusion he
said that the Irish cause depended to-day
as it had done in the past, largely upon the
sympathy of the liberty loving people of the
world. Thu friends of Ireland had quit
sending money to that oountry merely
To Pay Rent to Their Landlords,
but now contributed it instead to the National movement, "We require for this
year," he said, "about $240,000, of which
$45,000 is needed for the payment of a1-
lowaucos to members. While some of us
can maintain ourselves by our own exertions, while we Bit iu Parliament, the majority are not wealthy, and must eaerificce
everything. Wo require $45,000 towards
the general election expenses. Out of the
total of ��172,000 which came to the party
last year,
Ireland Contributed Over $99,000,
while the Irish abroad contributed $73,500.
In several quarters in the States, notably in
the slate of Massachusetts, liberal contributions were made; but the aggregate contributed from the States was $43,1X10 only,
while Canada sent $11,200 with probably
only pn'..fiftii'tti or one-sixtie'h of the
woalth of tho States. May wo not hope
that
12,000.000 Irish Americans
here will give $150,000 when they sue plain
ly set. hefi re them thu I usons and object of
the requests. I know that this is not a time
for collections in this country. 1 deploro

which is open to me
Boforo Roturning to tho Strugglo

if e.i previous y. His
the uu.rs that lie before
him, not of hid wishes For the rest, since
he assures ub that he has done nothing to
restrain the freedom of himself or his
colleagues for the performance of those
duties, the world may be sure that he has
no thought of quilting his place at the head
of the Liberals.
The Standard regards the statement authorized by Mr. Gladstone as of the highest
import. "Its effect upon the fortunes of
the ministry aud its programme," says this
high Tory daily, cannot fail to be most
damaging and discouraging to his colleagues.
They are left virtually without a head,
their leader holding himself at liberty to
retire at a momen '�� notice. A Gladstonian
ministry with Gladstone on the shelf is an
absurdity aB well as a constitutional anomaly. We have this consolation���the position
cannot be prolonged.
Mr. Lytleton, Sir" Gladstone's secretary,
lihii ii*M reosiv-ml at 11:45, aay auuvter tu toe
statement concerning the Pall Mall Gazett
announcement, which he telegraphed to
Biarritz. The National Liberal Club aud
the Central offices of the National Liberal
Federation have been deluged all the evening with telegrams ot inquiry as to Mr.
Gladstone's intentions. Scores of personal
inquiries have been telegraphed to Mr. Gladstone in Ba ritz. Among them several
from his Ministerial colleagues. The Liberals in London were disappointed by the
statemeut sent out by Sir Algernon West,
as they had all hoped for a plain unequivocal denial. Nevertheless the party managers are convinced that, nothing warrants
tho assump'.ou that Mr, GUdstone will
retire soon from public life. The Central
News l&ys that th�� Irish members of the
House of Commons are seriously concerned,
aud the leaders deem it their duty, under
certain conditions, to force the situation
Mr. Campbell Bannerman, secretary of
state for war, was expected lo nake some
open statements concerning Mi. Gladstone's
intentions when he adares.ua a Liberal
meeting in Dunfermline this evening. His
only reference to the subject, however, was
a remark about- the unexampled indec -icy
of the opposition, who reckoned on breaking
lowni... hei h aud powers of the Prime
.*'buster and driving him to retirement.
Their reckonings, he adds, would prove
vain.
Art iui* J. Balfour, leadei f the U:\ion
ists, in speaking iu Manchester this evening, emphasized the necessity of immediate
organization, as, he said, the general election would soon be here.
The Duke of Norfolk also, in addressing
a meeting at Dorking, referred to the approaching elections, and urged his lieareis
lo make their final preparations for the appeal to the country.
Vaillant in the Role ot His Name.
Paris, Jan. 31.���Vaillant's mother was
allowed to have a half hour's interview with
him this afternoon. She waB trembling and
weeping when she left the prison. Vaillant
is calm. He has said repeatedly to his
keepers to-day: "Death doea not frighten
me; I nlwll walk firmly and fearl* ss'y *n the
guillotine." He s' ill refuses to see the
ohaplain, and declares 'lut. he \v��l! die an
atheist. It. is certain i hat he w:*l not be
executed to-morrow.
Blsmaroks' Repartee.
Bkrun, Jan. 31.���While Prince Bismarck
was returning from Berlin to Friedrichsruhe
on Friday last, a group of spectators at the
Wittenberge station inquired as to the
Prience's health. Bismarck replied that he
had stood the journey remarkably well.
"You have an iron constitution" observed
some one iu the crowd. "Iron, yes, but
rusty," retorted Bismarck. His son, Count
Herbert, added: "But Dr. Schweinger
takes care of he cleaning." It has transpired that the Prussiiin Piomier, Count Von
Kulenburg, had a short interview with
Priuce Bismarck, during the latters stay at
the Royal Castle, last Friday. Prince Bismarck's visit to the ex-empreBS Frederiok
waa made in response o her writing bim
that if he came lo Bel u he should not fail
lo call upon her. Tin date of Kmperor
William's visit to Priuce Bismarck at Friedrichsruhe has uot been tixod yet, hut it is
certain to be before April 1st.
surgent steamer Parahyba anchored in a
threatening posilion near her this morning,
and may fire when ahe sUrls iu to-morrow.
In that case a serious conllict is inevitable.
The Situation Was Extremely Delicate
yesterday when the Detroit was beside the
Good News. The Guauabara and Trajano
had their guns loaded and aimed on all the
American vessels, while two heavy insurgent
tugs were ready to ram the Detroit. The
Guanabara and Trajano together have eight
splendid rifles, but wheu the Detroit fired a
six p .uoil shell into the Guunibara, and
Captain Brownson warned them that if another gun was fired, even by accident, he
would sink them and advised that they take
the men from their guns, they weakened.
Benham had the Newark ready to aid the
Detroit, while the New York, Charleston
snd San Francisco were alert to receive the
Aquidaban and Tamadare, which were under steam. Benham Baya to-day: "If Admiral DaGama was contending for any principle or position in which any civilized nation would sustain him,
He Ought to Make a Fight
but he is wrong in law everywhere in opposing us." The commander of the Austrian
warship has asked Rear-Admiral Benham to
be allowed to help in case of a fight. The
German naval officers applaud Benham. The
English officers naturally are in opposition,
while not denying that lienham's position is
lawful.
Benham Now Has Two Propositions
regarding arbitration, but he will not reveal
them. A settlement by such means, however, is at present improbable. While angry
at ins decisiou Hie insurgents comment upon
lienham's great courtesy and tact in negotiations lue day before the uouniot, Ueu*-
ham notified the cily authorities that the
water front would likely be endangered. A
consultation of inferior officers of foreign
naval vessels will be held to-morrow on the
San Francisco.
English Opinion.
The Stag ..I, of Loudon, commenting on
the new I ju Rio Janeiro, says that the
only o-i I - . now is how far the Washing-
top '' 7 .nent will approve and support
R i miral Beuham's action. If the
Ui Mates no longer abstain from inter
ference between the. two factious, it says
Great Britaiu aud other interested countries will doubtless follow suit. The Standard- .'etr.iirks thai, though such an event
may end the insurgents' liopo of conquering
Peixoto by starving Rio, their success may
enable them eventually to triumph.
The Daily Telegraph says: "There will
bs very geueral sympathy with the American's decision not to permit commerce to
become absolulely crippled by the wanton
struggle waging iu Brazil."

attorney Wade, for the defenBe, the hearing of the motion for a new trial in
the oasn of Frederiok K. Prendergast,
the murderer ot Mayor Harrison, waB

The  Prosecution  and Defence Wrangle
Beforo tho Judge.
OhIOAOO, Jan. 31. The close of to-day's
proceedings at the Coughlin trial were marked by an exciting scene. The prosecution
and the defense had it hot aud heavy for a
few in iiut'*s. Ju.ig*. Tuthill arose in his
digni y au.l peremptorily ordered a cessation
of hostilities I 'vi.s :i 11 on account of
Lieut, Siift's alibi Usiiinony for Coughlin.
A' lhe fir t ui*��l '������������ swore that he fixed the
time he saw the defendant, May the fourth,
by seeing on the spindle late that night, an
order from Captain Shaack to have all
the officers visit the livery stables
and inquire about a white horse. The fact
aa that the order waa not issued until the
next day. Stifts went back to the witness
stand the next day aud said that he made a
mistake. Attorney Bottum wanted the
jury to believe there was no mistake about
it, that Stift was lying and did not know he
had put his foot iu it uutil some one told
him after he left lhe witness stand. "This
is a trick, y* ur honor," shouted Judge
Wing, exasperate 1 at the refusal of the
prosecution to allow Stift to explain. "A
email trick, where a man ison trial for his life,"
The prosecutor aud his assistants were on
their feet gesticulating aud trying to get
the attention of tho judge a�� well as out-
talk the defence, "You aro full of tricks
yourself, you don't want facts to come out,"
shouted Attorney Bottum, angrily. The
judge brought his gavel dowu heavily and
rising in an augry mood shoutod, "I will
hav* i rder in this courtroom, proceed with
this 11lull" The first alibi witness was
Michael Whalen, a first oousin to the late
P. O'Sullivan, who went on tho Chicago
police force in 1873. 'As a detective he was
attaohed lo the aame police station as
Coughlin, the day of the murder and two
days afterwards waa assigned to travel with
the defendant. He testified that he saw
Coughlin on the night of May 4, 1880, about
7:45 o'clock, omside the Chicago avenue
police station, talkiug to Capt tin Schaack.
He and Coughlin went wiih Sergeaul Stift
to Moloney's saloon nnd had a drink bt-
tween 9:30 and 10 o'clock Lieutenant
Stift, who waa patrol sergeant at the Chicago
avenue statiou in May, 1880, supported
the alibi. He said he saw Coughlin on the
night of May 4th, 1880, aa he was leaving
tl.e Chic go avenue police station. Coughlin
waa Btandiug in front of the door; the time
was 0:30 or 0:40; he invited him and officer
Whalen to take a drink and they left
Coughlin in the saloon. Four more witnesses were asked what they knew of Mrs.
Hoertel'c general reputation for truth and
vcricity, an*', they   united   in saying it was
bad.

Printers Ink, the highest newspaper authority in America, speaks thus of The
Daily Teleoram:
"Did you ever hear of a place called
Nanaimo? It is on the Island of Vancouver
and 75 miles from Victoria. If you live in
what you consider an euterprising city and
believe that your local daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Daily
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample copy of his paper, aod when
you obtain it compare it with your home
production. Go down and talk With the
publisher about it afterwards, and ask him
���why it is that he can't print aB good a paper,
or obtain as good a local patronnge, or have
his pHjier as free from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful 1* r.son
may be learned from Nanaimo."

LADY MANAGERS GrtATfihltD.
"Women of Many Foreign Lauds Working
for the Fair.
Women of foreign countries are taking
an interest in tin* fair that is encouraging to the lady managers. The latest
to offer her services is Mme. Leon Uer-
tault, who is the head of the decorative
art division of the French committee.
Mme. Bertault proposes to decorate the
vestibules of the woman's building, assisted by a number of other women artists. The letter from M ine. Begard to
Mrs. Potter Palmer, which gives these
details, also states that three noted
women musical composers, the Vis-
comtesse Grandval, Mme. Augusta
Holmes and Mme. Ceeile Chamissade,
will play selections from their own
Works at the concerts to be given in the
Woman's building, among them the
opera of "Mazeppa" by Mme. Grandval,
and the "Hymn of Peace" by Mme.
Holmes.
Mme. Diaz, wife of the president ol
Mexico, writes that the Mexican women
will contribute a full uniformed band,
besides a department of sweetmeat
makers, who will go through all the
processes of making those delicacies for
which Mexico is famous. All will be
dressed as if in their own country.
Mme. Diaz, who is at the head of the
Mexican women's committee, is taking
a great personal interest in the work.
The woman who originated the idea
of the llcatrice exposition in Florence
in 1890���Senora Carlotta Fernari da
Lodi, sometimes called "'The Sappho of
Italy"���will contribute both ��� literary
and musical works to the fair. Her
"Centennial" has made her name a well
known one, and she is the composer of
several hymns, ono of which has gained
a national reputation.
British women are beginning to send
in their exhibits. Miss Ethel Gordon
Fenwick, secretary of the trained
nurses committee, is now on her way to
Chicago to superintend part of the
English exhibit.
Among the states the latest to come
to the front are Kentucky and Louisiana. The former will make an extensive exhibit of grasses, of which there
are about forty varieties, some of them
growing to the height of four feet. But
the most observed kind will doubtless
be the blue grass. Kentucky will decorate a room in the woman's building.
It will be finished in fifteen varieties of
light woods, according to plans submitted by Miss Ida Symmes. Carved
and fret work done by Kentucky
women will give elegance to the interior.
Books are being sent in from all
parts of the United States and from
many foreign countries. Senora Da
Lodi gave several books of her poems
and Mrs. Leigh-Hunt Wallace sent a
bulky package from London. Mrs.
Emily Crawford is writing a work
on woman's progress in the nineteenth
century.
ORCHIS   TEA.
A  IsovoraRft <>f   Which   Frenchmen   Are
Raid to Uo Point.
It appears, from a Londca paper, that
Frenchmen have been drinking orchid
tea for ii.'ty years, am! that the consumption ol tnis expensive delicacy has
much increased of lata. The orchid
from which the tea is made is a member of om* of the handsomest and
most expensive families���the An^roe-
cum. It grows in tho forests of Hmr-
bou and Mauritius, and the s/ienliuu
know it, as Angroecum frtvgrjtns. Ihe
commercial virtue of the plant lies in
the strong perfume of its leaves. The
genus is allied to vanilla, and it is only
necessary ''to touch the fresh leaves for
the fingers to remain impregnated with
the aroma," which remains alter the
leaves have been dried. This process is
very simple, apparently. No heat is applied and no coloring mutter.
The decoction is equally easy. You
just lay the leaves aud stalks iu cold
water, about one gramme to a teacup���more or less, according to taste���
close the vessel tight aud boil for ten
minutes. The tea may be sweetened,
and milk and rum bring out the Uavor
of tlie vanilla more strongly. It is as
good cold as hot, and may be warmed
up without deterioration. Material
enough for fifty cups is sold iu Paris for
two francs fifty centimes. It is called
faham, as iu Mauritius.

ALLEGED    BAD    CONDITION
THE FRENCH NA VY.
OF
The picture drawn by M. Lockroy   in the
debate on Monday in the Chamber of  Dep.
uties on the condition of the   French    navy
must be somewhat alarming  to the   French
people.    M. Lockroy, who is a   member   of
the committee appointed to enquire into the
condition of the navy, took a very pessimistic view of matters, in connection both with
the navy and with   French coast   defences.
Since the conclusion of the war with   Germany, France has   expended   immense   sums
upon her navy, and   now according   to   M.
Lockroy over one quarter of the French fleet
is composed of old ships, and their  artillejy
is inferior. An irchy, he says,   reigns in   the
naval depaitmeut.    Deficits   had   occurred
at the Toulon arsenal, and the   guilty   parties had uot beeu  brought   to   punishment.
Since 1871 the naval   strength   of   France,
said M. Lockroy, had only increased six per
cent., and her vessels were inferior in   number, speed, and every* hing else   to those   of
the other powers.    At the   same   time   the
waste and   disorder   in every   part   of  the
naval administration, he declared, was  flagrant.    The coast defences,  according  to M.
Lockroy, are if possible   in   a   worse   state
than the  navy.    The   forts   at   Roehefort,
L'Orient, Brest and Cherbourg are,  he said,
in a bad condition.    The torpedo   boats   at
Toulou are notably   worthless.    Corsica    is
absolutely undefended, and   the   Italians  if
they choose could land 15,000 men   on   the
island in an hour.    Havre and   Dieppe, said
M. Lockroy, were at the mercy of any fleet
that desired to bombard them, while Rouen
And Boulogne were   practically  defenceless.
England, he declared, need, have  no  fear of
Cherbourg, and she could laud forces if she
chose at   Coletin.    Such, according to  Mr.
Lockroy,     was     the    condition     of     the
French navy and the French coast defences.
The navy was poor and   week, many of   the
ships old and   ill-armed, aud   the  coast defences worthless.    He  summed   up  his  observations wiih regard to  tie latter by say
that in Ihe event i*f w,ii*   being   uddenly declared against   Frauoe, her   coast,   defences
were   not   prepaied   to   prevent an enemy
from  landing.    Descending   to   particulars
regarding the navy, he said that the French
ironclads,     were     defective.       The     Magenta, recently built, had failed to meet her
contract     requirements.      The     Neptune,
and    Marceau    were    also     faulty.      Fatal   accidents    were   constantly    occurring
on board   the   ships,   owing  to their badly
constructed engines.    Other   speakers   confirmed to some  extent  at  least, Mr. Look-
roy's strictures.    Cassimiri Perier, the  Premier,   said    that   tbe   facts   related    con-
cerned       the      governmeut     immediately
preceding      the      one     now    in     power.
He    asked     the    Chamber     to    adjourn
the debate until   Thursday   to   enable   the
government to examine the charges.    This
was done accordingly.    If   in   the resumed
debale the  government ie  uot able to meet
Mr. Lockroy'h  charges, the  state of things
in the French   navy   and the coast defence
must   be   assumed   to   be serious.    If this
should, on   inquiry, prove   to   be  the case,
France's neaiest  neighbors,  limit   Britain
and I'uly, will   have  no reason to be sorry.
The fact., if it be oue, that the  Freuch uuvy
is defective will do more to secure the peace
of Europe for several years to come than almost any other   that   could   be mentioned.
One result of it undoubtedly   will be, if Mr.
Lockroy's charges  are  eveu  approximately
true, the disruption  of  the Franoo-Ruesian
alliance,   at   least   so   far  as  it  threatens
-Great Britain.    The result of the postponed
debate on  Thusrday will   be watched with
interest.

Tiik riots of the coal miners of Pennsylvania are still being continued, but not apparently in so violent a form. Work is interrupted at some of the mines, and coal
cannot be hauled till the typples, which the
rioters destroyed, have been restored.
Thirty-nine of the rioters have been indicted
by the grand jury on charge of unlav.fu
assembly and I luce on charges of arson and
riot. We do not see how their riotous proceedings can in any way benefit the miners.
The Americans, as we anticipated, are not
taking kindly to the rioting and destruction
of property, and are bound to put both
down.
Khedive Akiias of Egypt is likely to bo
deposed before long, for his persistent and
inveterate hostility to British rule in Egypt.
A London despatch says that opinion at the
Foreign Office there points to the early deposition of the Khedive and the succession
of his brother, Prince Mehemet Ali. Lord
Rosebery, the Secretary of State for Foreign Affairs, is dissstisfied with the Khedive's hostility to Great Britain, and will
raise the question of his deposition for consideration by the cabinet immediately after
the recess. The official opinion is that the
Khedive will not cease intriguing against
the British regime, and surrounding himself with officers hostile to the BritiBh, to
whom alone he gives his confidence. The
Times says, significantly, that the Khedive
must be made to understand that Egypt iB
not his plaything. The chief danger from
Abbas' capers is that perhaps he may ultimately succeed in embroiling the British
with the French or Russians, thus bringing
on a great war. It will be better to get rid
of him before he has a chanoe to do so.

LIFE
The Americans are said to be thrcateu-
ing to take part in the Brazilian row againBt
the insurgents. The youug men in Admiral
du (lama's squadron are reported eager to
fight. If they try a brush with the Americans, we think that their courage, like Bob
Acre's valor, will quickly oozo out at I heir
finger ends. Fighting the Americans they
will find to be very different work from
making a noise by firing big guns at Peixoto's forts, and being similarly fired at in
return by the latter, but never hit, not even
by accident, apparently. Still, it will not
be much credit to the Americans to help
such a man as Peixoto, whose hands are red
with innocent blood, if the dispatches tell
the truth, or near it.

WELLINGTON ITEMS.
The newly married Mr. and Mrs. Kay, nee
Berrigan, returned from their bridal tour
on yesterday's train from Victoria. At 8
o'clock last night many of their triends answered ihe invitation for an "at home," and
enjoyed the menu of a substantial supper.
After this, the residence being too small for
the numerous guests to participate in dancing, they all adjourned to the Finlanders'
hall, where the light fantastic toe dittoed
the hall floor for many a merry hour. Verily
the giving and given in marriage is a goodly
institution. There are more, we understand, to follow.
THE PROVINCIAL  CAPITAL.
The Government  Asked to Expedite tho
Canada Western.
Victoria, Jan. 31.���[Special]���In the
Legislature this afternoon the necessity of
removing the Indiins from the Songhees
reserve in "viotoria was agalu made the subject of debate, and of a recolutinn to the
Dominion Government, asking for the removal of the siwashes.
Mr. Keith's question, regarding the enforcement of the Coal Mines Regulation
Act, of 1890, was ruled out of order on a
point being raised by Premier Davie.
Business of the day was light.
Mr. Grant has on the notice paper a resolution asking the Government to do all that
iB possible to expedite the construction of
the Canada Western railroad.
In to day's issue we finish one story, ''The
Lovers' Stratagem," and begin another serial entitled "Light, Out of Darkness." The
latter narrative is by the widow of America's Shakespeare of the pulpit, namely, Mrs.
Henry Ward Beecher, who is a regular contributor to the Ladies' Home JourncU, of
Philadelphia, and whose pen productions
are in constant demand by ihe leading magazines. Thii is proof enough that the story
will be well worth perusing and preserving.
There are 39 chapters extending over about
20 days.

A Demented Suicide.
Port Townsend, Wash. Jan. 31.���T.
Knudsen, a demented Swede, with several
gold watches and much money on his person, was taken into custody to-day. One
hour later he ender his life in a novel manner by securing one leg of his trousers to the
grating in the cell and tying the other
around his neck. The unfortunate man is
said to have been recently employed at
Whatcom, where he imagined some persons
there were trying io murder and rob him.
The Old, Old Story.
Dkcator, III, Jan. 31. ���While playing
oards with Miss Maggie Trulook and oi her I
friends last night, David Lambert laid a revolver on the table tiller, us he supposed,
having taken out the cuririiUes. Shortly j
afterwards Miss Trulock playfully pointed
the revolver at Lambert and pulled the
trigger. There was a flash and Lambert
dropped to the lloor fatally wounded. It is
reported that she and Limbert were engaged to be married. Miss Trulook iB nearly
crazed with grief.
*     Cannonading Mrs. Stanfords'   ar.
Sacramento, Cal. Jan. 31.���On Saturday
evening Mrs. Leland Stanford arrived at
Vina in her private car on a tour of inspection of her property. Yesterday, having
concluded her business she orderek her ear
to he taken to the side track switoh near the
depot so as she could leave by the South
bound Oregon Express, passing Vina at midnight. Accompanied by her brother and
her maids, Mrs. Stanford started for her
car shortly after dark abont 11 o'clock,
when a cowardly gang nf cut- throats, about ten
in number, made an assault on the car whioh
they kept up for twenty minutes, marching
back and forth firing revolvers. They made
no attempt to break iuto the car, yet the
cowardly assault was such that, Mrs. Stanford was completely terrorized and did not
dare send any of her attendants from the car
for fear they would be shot. By the time the
citizens discovered what was taking place,
the mob dispersed. The citizens were so
shocked and worked up over the affair, that
had the perpretratora of the outrage been
taken they would probably have been
lynched.

CHAPTKB ii.
Noar one of our largest citleB, way *ol
access to tho business thoroughfares, a
stately mansion has stood for many
years, overlooking a sceno of unusual
beauty. Immense resources must have
been at the owner's command to enable
him thug to realize tho conceptions of a
faultless taste. Residences arc not rare
that betoken abundant wealth, but often
one can easily detect discrepancies that
are unmistakable evidence of unrefined
taste and a lovo of splendor that has
outrun tho means of uniform gratiflca-
tion. An imposing or showy front ia
too often united with cramped or shabby outbuildings, and unsightly arrange-
merits tn the rSar are veiled by gome
finciful device too fcoblo to conceal the
secret.
Without the fabled ring of invisibility
cither a very little imagination would
lead to a correct idea of the interior of
such pretentious dwellings. Throw back
the heavy curtains, seldom allowed to
admit free light and air, and the parlors
will be found filled, not furnished, with
objects of great value and beauty, it
fnay be, but in nowise harmonious with
tho appropriate furniture or colors of
the apartments where they aro found.
Bargains from some insolvent debtor's
forced sale, perhaps, and bought aa being "all wo cun hope to obtain, and they
will answer to fill up just here." Tho
owner's eye hag never beeu trained to
shrink painfully from such unfortunate
combinations.
Pass from the parlors to the dining
room. If hero the various articlos were
only suited and arranged with pure taste
or for homo comfort and enjoyment,
how attractive wo should find itl How
dazzling tho exhibition of cut glass and
r.ilver, how beautiful the rich snowy
damask���if displayed for guests of distinction or fashion I If not, drop these
curtains, close the door and pass far
back to a wing of the house, tho common
dining and pitting room���untidily kopt
and penuriously furnished. The table is
spread for only the family. Is that bill
of faro inviting? Will anticipations of
it quicken a weary husband's homeward
steps or call soft and loving smiles to
children reloaded from the close air of
the schoolroom? Are these carelessly
dressed young ladies, idly lounging on
tho dilapidated sofa, impatiently awaiting tho tardy meal, tho same, so elaborately attired aud brilliant with jewelry,
for whom you half lost your heart last
evening at tho grand ball?
But this is hardly kind. If any prefer fashion and show to true taste and
solid homo comforts, why criticise their
choice, unless by returning to tho purer
atmosphoro which wo left for this digression tho contrast may "show unto you a
moro excellont way."
It requires a moro experienced observer than the writer to givo any just
idea of tho mansion to which your attention is recalled. You see true grandeur
combined with exquisite neatness and
gracefulness���tho very ideal of heme���
no touch of cioldness or formality, and
from tlio highc.it turret to tho lowest
oftioo about the extensive grounds this
bewitching harmony and symmetry
makes tho picture perfect.
Now wo will enter and stand a moment in tho cpacious hall. Look up that
winding stairway. Easy of ascent, with
many a broad landing, to the lofty dome
above all. See how the rich sunlight
comes flashing down, gilding those grand
old pictures on the wall���lingering caressingly over the fairy statue tto in that
alcove, gleaming through the bright
flowers and luxuriant vines, on these
brackets, into tho cagos near by and
waking up the birds to a wider gush of
melody���sparkling and twinkling and
scattering diamonds on tho golden heads,
white arms, baro feet of tlio little rogues
playing in that pictured brook or placing
a "glory"' on tho brow of that sleeping
babe.
In the magnificent suit of rooms on
tho right tho same refreshing union of
ricliest boatvfcy and softest ivposnattraots
you as you enter. Tho cm; i'.y curtains,
closed only iu tho cvenii.;,*. are now
thrown f..r back. Tlio fragrance from
"a wilderness of sweots" in the garden
perfumes tho room, and the free, life-
C.iving sun is shining unchecked over all.
Nothing here need shun its brightest
beams. It rests on (he pure brow of the
beautiful matron standing by the deep
recessed window, just touches the few
threads of silver in her luxuriant hair,
gent!y kisses the still fair cheek and
beautifies as it passes.
How richly the heavy silk falls about
her stately figure! At this moment, however, we miss tho quiet dignity that oue
is wont to associate with statoliuess.
Ono hand plays restlessly with that unpretentious ring on tho other, and as her
fingors press tho golden band do we not
know well how her heart repeats the
lovtofl *words that years ago bound it
theiw Very precious is tho costly diamond, the "silver wedding" ring, given
whan W rears of married life havo
passed, a fall of happiness "ns human
desire can soek or comprehend," but
every ray of many hued light that flashes
from it can never speak to her with the
magic voico of this simple circlet.
How earnestly the lady gazes from the.
windowl The mellow light and fragrant
air of the glorious "Indian summer," the
profusion of cholco flowesa, the bright
her brow would indicate some anticipated calamity or trouble.
While thus absorbed a tall, noble looking young man enters and rouses her
from this unwonted distraction. She
meets liim with a loving greeting, aad
truly, if his face be a correct index to his
character, he is a son for whom a mother
may thank Clod.
A few moments' pleasant conversation
follows, but both are restless nnd ill at
ease. At length the young man spoko
abruptly.
"Mother, dear, when do you expect my
father?"
' 'I havo been watching hero for him the
lost half hour, and surely he must soon
be home."
"Do you indulge any very sanguine expectations that our firm can possibly
avoid a total failure?"
"If they listen to reason rather than
pride and honestly ackuowledro their
embarrassments, your father thinks a
settlement may confidently bo hoped for
that will not only protect others from
loss through thorn, but secure to each
member of tho firm.a comfortable living,
with proper industry and frugality, till
this financial storm is passed."
"And surely, for their own interests,
they cannot longer hesitate."
k
mi
^m im
mm 1 m -.
It rests on the pure I. row of the beautiful
matron,.
"They seem bereft of sound judgment,
and I have no doubt it is your father's efforts to bring them to the realizing sense
of tho danger of longer dehty that so detains him."
"He must be sorely tried at any hesitation at such a crisis."
"Ah, yes. While business is so paralyzed, should they attempt to struggle
longer with the adverse circumstances
by which they aro surrounded, the effort
will involve them in irreparable rui i���
and, sadder than all else, tha blow may
fall at a time when they cannot pr< ve.it
great loss to those who have trusted in
them, mid thus add to other trials the
imputation of dishonesty.
"That is the bitter penalty almost invariably meted out to those who by failure impoverish others."
Tho young man stood silent and
thoughtful for some minutes, whilo his
mother earnestly watched the changes
that swept across his face, and as they
deepened sho fondly passed her arm
around him, saying cheerfully:
"Why, Gfqorgo, my dear son, you aro
surely too manly to despond when for
us thoro aro no darker clouds in prospect than loss of property, for you may
rest assured no blot will tarnish your father's honor, und therefore if wo cau remain undivided I feel very little disturbed at the thought of pecuniary loss.
I am chiefly annoyed at the anxiety your
father may bo compelled to endure beforo
he cun 1 *'���. ,: ais partners to consent to
an immoiliato settlement. 13ut you, our
eldest son, aro young, strong, well educated, entorpvising und energetic.
"It wouia Bioui that you would find
moro true enjoyment in an opportunity
to employ your talents in bffbrts to build
up our fortune anew than in the inheritance of wealth so abundant as to call for
uo exertion on your own port. Many a
ono whom God has richly endowed has
���buried his talents in a napkin,' aud
through the eifervating influences of
wealth has lived and died a mere cipher
instead of tho glorious being an industrious life with limited means would have
made him."
Geotge for a moment drew his mother
closely to bis breast, and leaving a passionate kiss on hor cheek replied:
"You misunderstand me, mother, dear.
Indeed I quite like the idea of engineering my own way in the world. It is for
yon and my good, kind father that I feel
regret and sadness. It is not so long
ci'.ico, but I can well remember by what
untiring industry, what patient efforts,
your present position was attained. No
inherited wealth placed us where we now
stand, but the sweat of father's noble
brow, aided and cheered by your loving
care and skillful management, just as
every true American should glory in
building up for himself a prominent place
in society. And now that in middle age
you aro among tho highest and noblest,
where you both are so well qualified to
shine, it does hurt me cruelly, my darling mother, to see a change in prospect.
io  HE CONTINUED.
THE LOVER'S STRATAGEM
(By Eric St. C. K. Ross.)
CHAPTER XIV.
(CONC'LUOEDl
Captain Dudles Smooth now joined the
oompany.
'How d'ye do, Alfred?" he began. "I intrude, I fear!   Quite a family parly."
"Wish us joy, Sm;oth," cried* Blount.
"Geori^ina's mine, and "
"And our four friends there apparently
have made up another rubber," said the
captain. "John, my dear hoy, you loot*, as
if you had something at stake ou the odd
trick."
"Sir, you're  very "   oried   Sir John.
"Confound the fellow!���and he's a dead
shot, too!" And it was well the elder
baronet recollected this, for duelling was
not yet abolished in these islands.
Mr. Stout and L*rd Glosimore now appeared hastily, and talking volubly of
Evelyn's election.
"Come, Evelyn," laid Stout���"you'll support us; we've all tho intelligence.''
"I'm sure he's of ours if his fortune is
safe, for we've all the property," cried
Gloasmuro. "Ah, my dear Evelyn, you
were out of humor yesterday���but I forgive
you."
"Ceitiinly!" shouted Stout. "What
would become of public life if a man wore
obliged to be, two days running, in tho seme
mind? I rise to explain. Just heard of your
return, Evelyn! Congratulate you. The
great motion of the session is fixed for Friday. We count on your vote. Progress
with the times!"
"Preserve the constitution!" said the peer.
"Your money will do wonders for the
party!" cried Mr. Stout.    "Advance."
"The party respects men of your property!" exolaimed  Glossmore.    "Stick fast!"
"I have the greatest respect, I assure
you, for the worthy and intelligent Hies
upon both sides of the wheel," said Alfred
Evelyn; hut whether we go too fast or too
slow does not, I fancy, depend so much on
the flies as on the stout gentleman inside
who pays the postboys. Now, all my politics, as yet, is to consider what's best for
the stout gentleman!" he concluded.
"Meaning John Bull," said Captain Dudley Smooth.    "Ce cher old John!"
"Smooth,'we have yet to settle our first
piquet aocount, and our last!" proceeded
Evelyn. "And I sincerely thank you for
the service yon have rendered to me, and
the lesson you have given these gentlemen."
Then he Went on, turning to Clara. "Ah,
Clara, you���you have succeeded where
wealth had failed! You have reconciled me
to the world and to mankind. My friends
���we must confess it���amidst the humours
and the follies, the vanities, deceits, aud
vices that play their parts in the great
comedy of life���it is our own fault if we do
not find such natures, though rare and few,
as redeem the rest, brightening the shadows
that are flung from the form and body of
the time with glimpses of the everlasting
holiness of truth and hive."
"But for the truth and the love," said
Mr. Graves, "when found, to make ub
tolerably happy, we should not he without "
"Good health I" exclaimed Ladv Franklin.
"Good spirits !" cried Graves.
"A good heart," murmured Clara.
"An innocent rubber," added Smooth.
" Congenial tempers," remarked Georgina.
"A pwoper degwoe of pwndence,"
drawled Sir Frederick Blount.
"Enlightened opinions!" cried Mr.
Stout.
" Constitutional principles I" exclaimed
the peer.
" A little humbug," pleaded Sir John
Vtsey.
"And plenty of money," added Evelyn,
when we may rest assured we shall obtain
the greatest amount of happiness, and to
this end it would be well to level every
" Lover's Strataokm."

"ODDS   AND   ENDS.'
A bhort Story, by Sloan & Seott.
During the month of February we are always busy taking stock, and naturally come across a large number of Odds
and Ends. Now you know yourself-or at least most p ople know���that it DOES NOT PAY to carry goods over from
one season to another. You eee, tho3e goods that lay on the shelves from year to year, until some of them are almost
old enough to vote, are eating themselves up in interest, and interest is one of those things that increase at a most alarming rate, especially if you are not watching it pretty close.
Now, this is what we are going to do. Commencing Thursday, February 1st, we shall institute an immense Remnant
and Oddment Sale, and shall surprise everybody by the insinuating manner in which we shall throw stuff out over our
counters and tables. You can't but admit that we have g ven you some big surprises, one way and another in the oast
year.   But THIS TIME we shall cause the most incredu ous to exclaim, " Well, I don't see how they can do it"
.    Remember, this Sale is only for February, and as there are only 24 working days in that month, you will require to
get around about every day while it lasts, so as to reap the full benefit. '
