Washington, D.C, Maroh 22.���To-day
opened with the reading by Mr. Sloll, of the
defense, of the depositions of Sister Augustine, conneoted with St. Joseph's Foundling
Asylum near Cincinnati in 1885 al the time
Mi-a Pollard claims she was contiued there.
The Sister testified that she had never heard
of Madeline Pullard as an inmate. She did
not remember having seen any girl at the
asylum in 1885 who remained veiled and
w ho gave birth to a child, except one, and
that woman wasnnt Miss Pollard. Plaintiff's
counsel said Miss Pollard had called at the
asylum in 1893, but witness could not remember Miss t'ollard. Sister Agnes, said
Sisier Augustine, told Miss Pollard that she
was a bad woman. Miss Pollard said she
Was a bad girl, but not a bad woman
Sister Agues, continued Sister Augustine,
would certainly have known Miss Pollard
had she beeu an inmate of the asylum.
The Colonel's Friend Speaks.
A friend of Col. Breckenridge.who believes in
theColonel'sinnocenoewasasked: "Howthen
do you construe tbe conversation between
lhe Colonel and M.s. Blackburn, as testified
to by her on the stand? Did he not ask Mrs.
blackburn to protect her on the ground that
he was to give her his name!"
"He did uot, why should Colonel Breckenridge ask Mrs. Back burn to piotectu
yuuug womau whom she had been alieady
on terms of intimacy with for two yeais.aud
who lia i participated in her receptions? The
fact that she came under Mrs. Blackburn's
prot- ction was one that antedates the convention you refer to. You will remember
moreover, she ihreaened to withdraw her
protection, unless the Colonel agreed to this
or that condition. Why should these conditions have arisen in Mrs. Blackburn's
mind? Mrs. Filette had been telling Mrs.
Blackburn stories about the plaintiff, whioh
bad no doubt weakened her in the estimation of Mrs. Blaokburn.   In order
To Avoid Public Scandal
if possible, and to save the girl, the colonel
took heroic measures aod what he said to
Mrs. Blackburn was within the agreement,
ami for the purpose that she might pass
from the scene without any prejudice to
herself and without involving Mrs. Blackburn. She did go to New York afterwards,
but ahe was quickly back again and did
everything to render any efforts, for her,
ineffective."
"In the soene which was enacted in tbe
office of Chief of Police Moore, what construe ion would you look for upon that.
Will it be said in the defendant's evidence
thai be acted under compulsion?"
"No it will not. He will not say that he
was afraid."
"1 think you might say that he was apprehensive rather than afraid."
"V��s, that would express it, for now, it
oomi s to pass that there are two more
pistols which the plaintiff threatened to use
besides the oi.e exhibited in oourt. But
wheu the colonel takes the stand he will tell
ttie whole truth and
Face tbe Musio Like a Man.
Whatever may have happened in Major
Moore's office, the plaintiff never dreamed
for one instant that the Colonel would ever
marry her, uor did she claim that he had seduced her, for do you uot remember in the
evidence of Major Moore, the Colonel said
to him in her presence, that he did not
seduce, to which she made no reply whatever to him, thus acquiescing in his statement. Returning for a moment to the pro-
tectiou of Mrs. Blackburn, had the Colonel
wished protection, did he not have his
mm lier here with his family, aud also a
cousin with whom he had* the sweetest relations? He could have taken her to them
had he been seeking protection for her."
"Now did the Colonel make  any promise
of marriage to Miss Pollard, during the lilt
time of his late wife?"   "Never in any form
whatever.   Any statement to the contrary
is absolutely false."
'Do you believe that the Colonel was the
father of three children mentioned in this
whole mattei?"
"I do noi; he was uot aware until he
heard the evidence in court the other day,
that any of the children had been boru
alive."
How long was it between the Blaokburn
conversation aud the Colonel's marriage with
his preseut wife?"
"The conversation occurred on March 31,
1893."
"Then He Was Secretly Married?"
Here   there was   hesitation   for a moment,
when an affirmative answer was given.
He was married lo Mrs. Louise Wing
on tbe eveniug of April 29th, 1893, iu New
York city, by the Rev. Dr. John R. Pax-
ton, at his home in the presence of Dr.
Pax ton's wife and tiis niece."
What was the cause of this secret marriage?"
"Well, Mrs. Wing was not well and expected io go east, wiule the Colonel expected
to go west, leaving it unlikely that they
should meet again in months. Referring to
this teat ure, the Colonel spoke lo me as
follows-. 'We were engaged to be married,
but ahe was extremely anxious to be ou
sweet terms with my children and to preserve the beat   relations in a  joiut family,
and the alternative came of a postponement
of our marriage r ill Congress should meet in
December, or a private marriage nnd its
subsequent announcement.' Any o*her reports about ihat marriage are
Gross Fabrications.
Absolutely false and concocted by those who
have lied on him "
In connection with the evidence given by
S.irah Gets, tin* colored procuress at Lexington, it was stated: "There were two
falsehoods sworn to by ber, but facts weie
duly fin thcoming ou the col nil's tx.munition. Inasmuch ����� I his woman had tol.i
two falsehoods, it is quite natural I hat if she
lisil been j ui, in a position to do so, she
would have told a third one also. You will
remember she was asked by counsel for the
plaintiff as to the condition of the bed
olotbing in the room. These were described
simply as 'disordered.' Had this young
woman been as claimed, I should imagine
that a more pressing question ns to the appearance of tilings would have been put lo
her. In that case, had she answered in a
way to sustain the claim of the plaintiff, it
would have been a lie, probably for a time
an effective one, but no such question was
put to her because no such evidence was in
existence.    Moreover it wonld seem
Strange for an Innocent Girl
to travel from Cincinnati to Lexington, a
dist-iuce of 90 miles, and stay iu a colored
brothel tor three days for the purpose of
having herself seduced. But all these things
will come out clear in his examination."
"Does the Colonel look for a favorable
verdict?"
"He does. His friends have stood by him
everywhere. He became entangled a�� many
another man has before bim, and be was so
perp'exed that he hardly knew what way to
tui n, and I don't see how any man or body
of men can ask for him more punishment
than he has received already."
Coal Industry in Virginia.
Coalburv, W. Va., March 22.���The coal
industry of West Virginia, whioh was chiefly instrumental in including the senate
committee to take coal out of the free list
and place on it a duty of 4u cents per ton,

yearly output of over $5,000,000, and the
employment of some 10,000 meu at wages
aggregating close up to $4,000,000 annually.
Queen Lil Will Go Lecturing.
Indianapolis, Ind,, March 22. If D.
Houser is to be believed, the deposed Queen
of the Sandwich Islands will soon be going
round the country with him on a lecturing
tour, wearing a crown on the stage and appearing iu the same Royal robes, which she
wore on stale occasions at Honolulu. He
made her an offer to go on the lecture stage
and to-day said he had received letters,
which showed his offer will be accepted.
Roseberry Will Marry Royalty.
New York, Maroh 22.���A special cable
to the Sun from London says: "I learn
from an authorized source ihat the Queen
and the Prince of Wales have given their
consent to the marriage of Lord Rosebery
with the Princess Maud of Wales, and tbe
official announcement may be expected any
day. This was the business whioh caused
Lr*rd Rosebery's urgent summons to the
Queen's presence on the Saturday before the
announcement of Gladstone's retirement and
the mysterious hobnobbing of the ministers
on the following Sunday.
Big Bond of Acres.

A Dangerous Singeing.
St. John, N.B., March 22 ���Word of a
very distressing accident comes from Cape
Tormentine. A girl named Spence wished
to singe her hair, so she tied it together,
making a knot near the end. She dipped
end, to the knot, in paraffin und held a
light to it. Her hair at once was all ablaze

Cremation in England.
London, March 22.���The seventh issue of
the transactions of the Cremation Society
shows the same steady increase in the
number of praotical converts that haB
characterized the society since 1885. In
that year three bodies were burnt at Woking, and for the following eight years, down
to the present time, the yearly numbers
have been 10, 13, 28, 46, 54, 89, 104, 101.
Last year looks at first sight like a deorease,
but Manchester has uow established a crematorium, and thirty bodies were cremated
there during last year, which would otherwise probably have been added to the
Woking total.
A Sea of Flames.
Oil City, Pa., March 22.���The Western
New York and Pennsylvania freight train,,
bound for Olean, composed of tank cart
loaded with oil and a few miscellaneous cars,
ran into a landslide at Walnut Bend, about
seven miles east of this city. Fourteen cars
were piled up io a narrow space between
Hillside aud Allegheny river. The wreck
at once oaught fire from the engine. As the
tanks exploded the burning oil flowed out
on the river, covering the surface of the
water with a sea of flames. AU the train
hands, with the exception of Fireman Martin, who is missing, escaped unhurt.

in the city and is staying at the Hotel Vancouver. Mr. Gillies, who ia accompanied
by hia wife, has just returned from a trip to
California. He is a large owner of timber
lands in the Ottawa Valley.
Master John Leamy a few daya ago found
an interesting relic of bygone days in the
eist end of New Westminster city. He
was searching for geological specimens in
some vacant lots on Front street when he
came across a flint arrowhead. Further
search resulted in the discovery of several
more arrowheads and a stone hatchet.
Mayor Hoy of New Westminster returned
yesterday from Viotoria, where he had been
on a hurried visit in connection with bridge
matters. He learnt that Mr. C. D. Rand
of Vancouver was at the capital endeavoring
to prevent the passage of the Fraser River

enstatite iron in grains and strings, and
magnetic material, consisting chiefly of
nickel-iron. Cobalt, magnesia, silica and
other substances were also detected in the

 ��
Esquimalt Defences.
An Eastern exchange says of the Island's
defences: Two years hence Great Britain
will possess in fortified Esquimalt the key
and command of the Northwest Pacific
Coast, including Puget Sound. The work
of fortification is now in progress under the
direction of Major Muirhead, R. E., one of
the most efficient experts of the British war
depTtn out. There will be no structure of
massive masonry pierced by frowning loopholes, like those of Cronstadt, for instance,
but the real fortifications are to be in the
heart of the earth, from which, should a hostile fleet pass up the Straits of Fuoa, will
arise the massive guns which have been designed to destroy the enemies of England.
The defences will be the realization of twentieth century military science.

Christmas Decorations.
Wherever there are children it ia a
wise plan to make much of the holidays,
and no one thing perhaps adds more to
the home festivities than the Christmas
decorations. In most localities one room
at least can be decorated at almost no
expense beyond the labor required for
tastefully placing the fjreens. If holly
and mistletoe are not to be obtained, every oountry household knows where to
find cedar, arbor vitse, fir, ground pine
and evergreen, which are always so effective for Christmas decoration.
First of all provide a Christmas tree
for the little folk. This is most easily
Bet up by securing it in the center of a
heavy block of wood. The block may
be concealed from sight by a covering of
green bri^e or muslin. A deep frieze to
place over doorways or arches may bo
made by sewing holly leaves and sprays
in artistic designs on common brown
wrapping paper.
If there aro portieres, they may be
looped back with evergreen wreaths, and
a mistletoe bough placed to drop from
the center just where one would naturally enter. Frosting plays an important part in these decorations���diamond dust, gold and silver powder and
ground glass powder being used.
An Artistic Screen.
If yon havo nimble fingers and an
artistic eye, you can make your own
screens. Here is a study for one: Secure
a framework of bamboo or other light
A FOLIIINO SCREEN.
wood. Gild the knobs and fill in each
fold with full panels of lettuce green in-
dia silk. Arrange a drapery at the top
of figured india silk in terra cotta and
edge this with tassel fringe. Ornament
the top with bows of lettuce preen ribbon. The lower bar of the frame twist
around with cord of the two colors���lettuce green and terra cotta���combined.
The result will be a very effective screen.
Curt.
A man absorbed in his work is apt to be
curt, and may not mean to be ill-mannered.    Here, possibly, is a case in point.
A venerable and dignified bishop was
recently having his portrait painted by an
eminent artist. After sitting steadily for
about an hour in silence, hia lordship
thought he would like to break the monotony with a remark. Accordingly he said
to the artist, "How are you getting on?"
To the astonishment of his sitter, the
knight of the palette, absorbed in his work,
thus replied: "Move your head a little
that way, and shnt your mouth I"
Not being accustomed to be spoken to in
this fashion, the bishop said:
"May I ask why you address me in this
manner?"
Artist (still absorbed): "I want to take
off a little of your cheek'" Collapse of the
bishop.
Soap �����   an Adulterant.
A French chemist has recently discovered that the confectioners of Finis are usiriu
soap for their charlotte riisses and cream
cakes instead of real cream, ami no one
ever knows the difference. A q .utility of
soap is dis.-iilvi'd in liot water, and when
cold is beaten to a stiff foam, with a few
drops of oil of poppies, until i-. is stiff and
just like whipped cream, it in tneii s.iuct-
ened and beaten a^'ain and used like real
cream, It is not very healthful, and su tlie
Paris Board of Health li ,s ordered thut it
be stopped, and the cueiuislu are busy
finding al. the confectioners who use the
soap mixture in their candies and cakes.
Catherine de Medici's Doctoa.
Pharnelius, like many other physicians, was much addicted to philosophy
and mathematics, but having taken to
medicine he speedily attained n great
practice. Henry II as dauphin nii.l ui't-
erward as king was his constant I'll,-nil,
Anion;,' the most grateful of hi.; patients
was Catherine de Medici, who believed
that bis skill bad saved her from u utate
of childlessness, and who gave him ou
the birth of lier firstborn {111) 000, ordering that a like sum should bu paid to him
at the birth of each suceee .i.g son' or
daughter. I think that Cardnno lil:ed
Pharnelius better than he ltad Sylvius.
He says he was a pale, lean man of about
50, who loved hiB study and was full of
domestic affection. He was tho professor of medicine in the university and
the first court physician, but he must
have puzzled Cassanate greatly, for he
bad an undisguised contempt for oourt
.society.���Blackwood's Magazine^
Tipping the Dean of St. Paal'st
At the Duke of Wellington's funeral,
��� lady having a ticket for a reserved
Mat presented herself at the wrong entrance to St. Paul's and knocked vigorously. The dean presently opened the
door, pointed out to her the mistake she
bad made and indicated the proper entrance. She, quite unaware whom she
was addressing and mistaking him for
one of the under officials, utterly refused
again to face the seething orowd and insisted on being conducted to her seat or
she "would report him." Of course she
bad her way and presently slipped half
a orown into her cicerone's palm. Needless to say, the dean waa delighted and
did not fall to exhibit Ua "ttp.'-Kotei

Brussels in the summer of 1892. The overthrow of the Gladstoue party aod the Gladstonian policy in Great Britain is certain to
be followed by great results, and probably
by none more important than the international remonetiz ition of Bilver and its restoration to its ancient place as a
money metal. This would do far
more for the prosperity of Ireland than
Home Rule would ever accomplish, by
gradually raising the price of agricultural
produce to such a figure that farmers could
thenceforth live by their business, and pay
rent also. The sooner a general election
tikes place and the Gladstuaians, Radicals
and Home Rulers are placed in opposition
the better it will be for every interest that
could be mentioned, uot only in the United
Kingdom, but throughout the world at
Urge.

GOLD  MINING  ON  THE FRASER.
The signs of a return  of good times, in
other words, of confidence   on   the   part of
capitalists having money to invest, which is
at present lying idle,   are   beginning   to be
unmistakably shown.    There are enquiries
for good productive properties in  all  financial centres, and while we may not look for
an era of wildcat speculation, such   as   waB
brought to an end with the collapse   of   the
Barings, we may   be   reasonably   sure that
good solid ventures will receive more attention than they did in those daya,   when   all
that was necessary to float a   scheme was a
few well known names on   the   prospectus.
It is a very encouraging   sign   that   now at
the beginning of what we trust will prove a
period of good times, one of the  first   countries to attract notice is   Canada, which can
be fairly said to divide with   South   Africa
and Australia the attention   of   speculative
capitalists.    The solid progress made by the
Sudbury nickel mines, the marvellous   richness of the Kooteney country, and   the   return to placer mining on the Fraser by   the
new methods, which have   superceded   the
pan   and   rocker   of the early miners, are
all serving to fix the   eyes of capitalists on
Canada, and   more   particularly on British
Columbia.    That the   anriferouB deposits of
the Province were by no   means   exhausted
has long been held as an article of  faith by
those best capable of judging     The opinion
is prevalent among old   miners that there is
gold enough   in the Fraser   to   pay the national debt in England, if it could  be recovered.    Nothing shows   better   the natural
wealth of the Province, than   when Bilver is
at such a low price that   it   will not pay to
mine it in many places, in   British  Columbia we have but   to change from silver mining to a search   for gold, as   is   being done
with much promise of success by the many
hydraulic  and dredging companies  now operating on the Fraser.    That the Fraser aB
matter of fact   runs over   a   bed of gold in
many places, no   one   acquainted   with the
early history of  g 11 d BOOvety in   this Province will deny.    It   is   a   well-  nown fnct
tbat the Kanaka bar, the ae.it of   operations
of the Kanaka Bar Gold   Dredging Co , was
once for a few hours laid dry by a land slide
blocking the river, and in thut short period
some   that   were on  the   spot   carried   off
enough deposit, which when washed,enabled
them to live  oomforWhly ever since.    The
Kanaka bar is only one of the  many places
to which the attention of capitalists is directed.    From Prinoe Albert Flat, with itB
promise of   untold   wealth,   to   the   head
waters of the river   in   Cariboo, each   spot
claims eager attention, and each has ardent
admirers, who   are   willing to invest   their
money in plant to draw  the precious metal
from its hiding place.
Mu. Dai.tiin McCarthy has again introduced his bill in the Dominion Parliament,
giving the Northwest Assembly full control
of educational matters. The bill is intended
to guard agaioBt separate schools. It also
abolishes the French as an official language.
The bill has been read a first time, but it is
altogether unlikely that it will pass.

Mr. G, P. Martin, who was at one time
president of the (Jluli Nationale, of Montreal, has published au open letter in reply-
to ex-Lieutenant-Governor Royal's brochure
on independence, in which he strongly opposes both independence and annexation, as
being dangerous for the French-Canadian
nationality. This statement of opinion is in
line with Sir George E. Carlier's celebrated
declaration, that the last shot in defence of
the British flag in Canada would be fired by
a French-Canadian, Cartier was the friend
of Sir John Macdonald and a true Conservative; Royal was a placeman, and when out
of place proves himself to be at bottom a
traitor to tlie Queen, under pretence of loyalty to Canada. We hope that he will
never again be permitted to occupy an office
under the Crown.

PROGRESS   AND    PROSPECTS    OF
BIMETALLISM.
It is announced that at the request of the
merchants and others largely   interested in
the Indi*   and   China   trade, the   London
, Chamber of Commerce has   represented   to
the Government the urgency  of reassembl-
itg an international   monetary   conference,
with the view of finding some   remedy   for
the heavy fall and   violent   fluctuations   in
silver,   which   are   causing great injury to
Eastern trade.    A leading   American   contemporary considers this a very important
announcement,      indicating      the      rapid
progress       of       public        feeling        in
England      in      favor     of      a      double
standard, compared with what it was when
tho Brussels conference  wai  held.    Some
of the ablest publio men in   England are declared bi-metallists.   Among these may be
mentioned Mr.  Balfour, the Conservative
leader in the House of Commons; Sir David
Barbour, lately  Finance Minister of India,
who a few   weeks ago addressed a meeting
in Manchester in its favor; and Mr. Robert
Barclay and Mr. W. H. Grenfell, who are
recognized on all sides as leading authorities
on questions   of finance.    It   may   be that
while Mr. Gladstone retains his supremacy
over the Britiah  Cabinet, as  the Nestor of
tbe Liberal party, nothing will be done; but
if the approaching general eleotion restores
the Conservatives to power, it is nearly certain that  an  international monetary conference will   be  apeedily  summoned,  and
that ita result will   he   very different from
that of  tbe conference  which was held at

Harrison Hot Springs.
(Specially Contributed to Tiik Tklkhrah.)
Mr. W. S. Caine, M.P., in his interesting
'book "A Trip Round the World," describes
Harrison Lake as a combination of Como
and Windermere. This is high praise when
we consider that Como ia the most beautiful
-spot in Italy, and Windermere the grandest
lake in England. I visited Harrison Hot
Springs for the first time early in August,
and although my expectations were high I
was not disappointed. I have seen most of
the pioturesque places oi Europe. I sm
familiar   with   every   piece  nf   beauty in
���Switzerland and Italy. I know the Rhine
and the legends'of its castles.   I have seen
-the beautiful spots of  the  Emerald Isle,
which awakened the poetic muse of Tom
Moore, and I have waudered through the
romantic scenery of
Caledonia, stern and wild,
Meet nurse for a poetic child,
yet I have never seen anything whioh for
fine, calm, picturesque beauty exceeds the
glories of Harrison Hot Springs.
I have looked upon this picture in various
aspects. I have seen it at sunset when the
lake has looked like a mirror framed with
the eternal hills, the whole illuminated with
tints of crimson, gold and purple; aod I
have looked upon the same scene at the end
of December, when the mountains were
covered with snow, and the exquisite Sowers
of summer were hidden under the white
coverlet, and silently sleep, of ooming spring
to dream. But whether dressed in the
russet robes of autumn or the white fleece
of winter it presents the most perfect scene
of beauty it is possible to contemplate.
So I was not surprised to hear Henry
Irving and Ellen Terry express the same
opinion when they visited the lake in
August. The St. Alice Hotel is of a high
class, and the Messrs. Brown do their utmost to make their guests comfortable.
They remind one more of hosts in a private
house than hotel proprietors, and the personal interest in the comfort of guests ia of
a nature which no money can repay. After
remaining a guest for nearly five months I
felt like Thackeray���
"I was tempted no further to roam,
For instead of an inn I fonnd it a home."
During my visit some hundreds of people
stayed at the St. Alice, and among these
were the leading citizens of Viotoria, Vanoouver and Nanaimo, while the United
States was also largley represented. Wm.
Blaok, the novelist, tells us there is no place
where one can become acquainted so quickly
as at an hotel. Life friendships have been
formed with no other introduction than the
passing of Bait. I enjoyed the society there
like a novel. I listened to the stories of life
from the lips of a living book. I met a
millionaire who told me that he began business without either education or capital. In
oontrast to this another told me of his brilliant early life, drifting into sickness and
poverty���dead leaves lying where roses had
bloomed.
A Western judge, to whom I lent a copy
of Macaulay's essays, returned the
book with this remark, "Mac-
aulay seems a pretty sliok writer
it is a wonder I have never heard of him before. " There was a lady however, who had
read everything almost and expressed herself in pointed epigrams. I showed her
some verses I had written end she asked
why 1 did not publish a volun.e. I nniai lied they would probably be used for lining
trunks. "No" Bhe answered they would be
used for lining memories. I asked her what
ahe thought of Lord Randolph Churchill,
Bhe said "he becomes insipid as soon as he
ceases to be insoleut." Speaking of Henry
Labouchere she remarked "he impresses ��ne
with the idea that he would rather say a
smart thing than do a good one."
The daily trips during the season of the
steam yactit to the Rainbuw Falls, and
oiher places of interest on the lake were
very enjoyable and some of the friendships
made live like joy in memory. Every night
during the season there waB a ball in tbe
pavilion, so no portion of time hung heavily. To the sportsman who is fond of shooting, the neighborhood offers bear, deer,
grouse, duck etc., and the disciples of
Walton can play the gentle art to some purpose, 1 have seen Mr. C. W. Robson and
John Boultbee return with 22 dozen trout
as a reward for one days sport.
But far more impoituni than glorious
scenery, oharming society, or exciting sport,
is the advantage to wealth derived from the
Hot Springs, which have only to be known
to be appreciated.
The bathhouse is a quarter of a mile from
the St. Alice Hotel. There is alto au excellent, economical boarding-house attached.
Mr. William Knight, the genial and intelligent superintendent could many a tale unfold which might seem incredible tn those
who have not Been Ihe wonderful cures
which have resulted from the use of this
water. I have seen oases which have been
pronounced incurable, yield to the potent
power of the spring, and hosts of invalids
return to their homes as missionaries to proclaim the glad tidings that "Troth lies at
the bottom of the well."

On Fraser street, in this city, near the

house. The Tei.ici.kam man, even in the

beginning to show sigus of what the summer will bring forth, h stopped to enquire
what the numerous plants were, arranged in
such a harmonious fashion. Now they were
simple flowers, hyacinths, crocus, snowdrops, tulips, jonquils, daffodils and wallflowers. None of them were of the expensive hot house class, but the garden ia at
present beautiful from its trim, well kept
appearance, and during the summer will be
a never-ending source of pleasure to its
owner. Now why can't others go and do
likewise? How would the city look if the
houses were enclosed in gardens auch as
thia?
The Conquests of Mexico.
The lecture by the Rev. R. S. Cleaver in

an appreciative audience laat night. The
eloquent lecturer kept his liateners spell
bound by his vivid description of the unparalleled conquest of a large empire by a
handful of determined men. He carried his
audience in tbe short time of an hour and a
half through the three volumes of Prescott,
and he succeeded in doing so in auch a
manner as made hia hearera understand the
history better than if they had read it
without the aid of such a description. A
vote of thanks was tendered to the talented
lecturer by Mr. Wilson, seconded by Mr.
Chambera, the president of the Epworth
League, and carried with applauae. The
chairman, Rev. Mr. Maitland, conveyed the
same to the lecturer, who acknowledged it
in a few expreesive wofds, and after singing
"God save the Queen'Jiand a blessing asked
by the chairman, the-well pleased audience
dispersed.

Business being only quiet, I spent the afternoon till dark
doing somewhat heavy work in the garden, and having dined,
sat me down in the same arm chair I've sat in many times before
in my happy home in dear old England, and many a "forty
winks" have I had in that same chair. I was very tired and
feeling very sleepy, said to my dear wife, "If I fall asleep let me
sleep on." And fall asleep I did, and dreamt the following
dream:���
I was in the garden, spade in hand, when a fine-looking
elderly man, with snow white \ air and beard, and ruddy, honest
face, that showt d unmistakably that he was a man who had
weathered it more ways than one, came to the gate and said "I
als . have b en a worker, and seen much of the world and its
'ups and downs.'     For forty years I was a rrirrer���come aloi g
with me and I will show you something worth the seeing."   I laid
down my spade an i involuntarily followed him.     When on
Front street he s��id:   "See you those vessels in the bay?   That's
the commencement of better times, and there are real good
times ahead for your good C ty of Nanaimo.    The worst is past,
not to return for years, if ever, but that I guess you know yourself.   See you that tramway ?"   I could not, but thought I sUould.
"I  want you to go with me by boat to Vancouver, and
on to the richest country, or one of them, on God's earth, the
Kaslo-Slo an country;" and so we went.     Once on board, the
old man, putting his strong hand on my shoulder, said: "I guess
you also have setn some of the ups and downs of this wicked
world."    "That's so," I said, "but 'Never Say Die,' is my motto,
and I meau to get there yet."     'Well said," replied my friend,
"then you will not regret this joun ey."     From boat to trai' ,
and then we seemed to fly, and* landed in a country teeming
with untold wealth.    Mine after mine he showed me, and seemed
to know many of the workers.    "This is no talk, no idle fancy,"
said he, "there it is before your eyes, unto.d wealth;" and so it
was���unmistakably.     We then followed, as I remember,  the
track of the Kaslo-Slcan Railway.    "In less than three months
from  now, my friend," said he, "the rails will be down and
trains running into Kaslo; and ht-Te we are in Kaslo itself.     I
must leave you  now, make good use of your opportunity, and
if y u have ihe pluck you'r credited with, (and but for that I
should not have sought you out), I say if you have the sense I
think you have, j ut your last dollar into Kaslo, and grow rich."
I turned to thank him for his good advice, and saying I would
act upon it, stretched out my hand, but his was gone, it was my
wife's I grasped
"You seemed  so  restless,  Tom, I thought I'd wake you,
it's time to go to bed " she said.    And to bed I went.
This dream is a fa*.t.     It may have arisen from the unbounded confidence I hav�� in the future of

KATE JORDAN'S WORK
6KBTCH Of THE AUTHOR 09 "THB
KISS OP GOLD."
Het Charming Parsonalltj ��� How ghs
Served a long and Silent Apprenticeship���Stageatruoh Onoo, hot Mow IS Is
AU dona.
The charm that lies in a story sometimes defiesa definition. We call it "the
way a story is told," just as we talk of
the expression as the pleasing quality in
a face. But it is more than that. It is
the mapietic personality of the writer
behind the words.
This is what I felt as, with a sigh, I
laid down "The Kiss of Gold." The
beauty of its diction still haunted ma���
its humanity that planted a little ache
in my heart, and its buoyant description
of youth, love and success put, alasl to a
wrong use.
I began to wonder about this new author, Kate Jordan, whoso story had
transfigured a dull afternoon for me. I
felt that she was young; and had perhaps poured out the story of her own
literary experiences in the great whirling life of New York.
Who was she?   I determined to see.
A few days later I was mounting a
fh'k'ht of brownstono steps in a quiet up
town street, and making known my mission was ushered into u pretty, harmonious room, oriental in style. It showed
that an artistic taste had selected the odd
trifles that filled it. One right angle was
a deep divan covered with rugs and
heaped with tho most inviting looking
pillows. Above it hung a piece of
tapestry, an excellent copy of Bougner-
eau's "Two Loves." The mantel was
draped in fishnet that looked as if it had
seen good service and was looped up at
one side by a long fishing rod. Japanese
matting and odd antique rugs covered
the floor. On tue walls were many choice
water colors. But just above the piano
were some pictures that interested me
more���tho original pen and ink sketches
of "The Kiss of Gold," daintily framed
in white, and also an original drawing
of Miss Jordan's heroine in her other
strong dramatic story, "The Other
House."
A very pretty -violet eyed girl in a blue
morning gown came in to see me.
"You want to speak to my sister?" she
asked. "She writes ina room at the top
of the house, just as far away as she can
get from all of ub, and if you won't mind
going up two pairs of stairs I'll take you
to her."
I followed my guide up the stairs to a
white door at the end of a narrow hall
under a stained glass skylight.
Our knock interrupted the soft humming of a comic opera air, and we went
in. Miss Jordan wns sitting at the window before a long oak writing table, on
which was heaped a chaos of papers of
almost every color,
ners, its people made tip of every color
and quality, from every amatry nn the
globe, like the sampled in it tv :(li's:*"'n'**-

MISS KATE JORDAN.
"Please don't look at the table. This
is cleaning day." she Baid brightly as she
gave me her hand���such a little hand,
indeed the very prettiest real hand I ever
saw. "This is my eyrie," drawing forward the most comfortable chair for nie.
"I can't hear a sound from the house,
but the murmur from the struct is incessant, and I like that. My pleasantest
hours are spent in this little mom."
It was a pretty place���all blue and
white. Tho rug, the divun, the lamp
shade, the curtains nil blue und white,
and beyond the wide window, with its
frill of Chinese cr.ru*, lay the housetops
and spires of the city, the smoke from
hundreds of chimin v.- curling into the
vivid morning sunli*.:!it.
And t'ue owner of it? Her personality
was quite in keeping with the restful
beauty of the pluct*. Kite Jordan is a
pretty, well bred, wi ",ldri-sed New York
girl. She looks about it!), and there is
nothing in her dress, manner or speech
to suggest that she is "literary"���in other words, she is not unpleasantly labeled
wjth the mark of hor profession. She iB
a brunette with white skin, frank, direct
eyes, with the dark eyelashes of the
Irish, and her lips and teeth are remarkably pretty.
A Russian jacket of brown velveteen
was confined at her waist by a dull, Bilver belt, and a long, straight skirt of
brown cashmere hung down from it in
graceful folds.
"So this is being interviewed, and I
am to talk about myself?" she asked,,
settling herself among the pillows on the
divan: "It's a subject with which I am
eo familiar, no wonder I do not find it
as interesting as some others. To commence, then, I am Irish by birth. Dublin ia my native city, but I left it when
a baby. I have traveled very little, but
hope to see a good Wt of tji? yrorjd very
soon. I have lived in New York all my
life, and I think I know it thoroughly."
"One has only to read 'The Kiss of
Gold" to know that," I ventured.
"Dear New York"���and her eyes darkened with enthusiasm���"with its differ*-
_t phases of life, its odd nooks and cor-
laid among the poor of New York, in
full sympathy with them, as Dicl;er.s,
whom I love, was with the London
poor."
"Have you written anything besides
���The Kiss of Gold' and 'The Other
House?'"
"Oh, yes, I have sent out a ton of manuscript, most of it unsigned. When
you look up the biography of any one
whose work in the arts happens to
make a good impression, you will generally find that they have not come under the public notice at a bound. Like
others, I have served a long and silent
apprenticeship since the time I wrote
love stories before I left school and reveled in seeing them in print with a luxury I do not now know."
"In 'The Kiss of Gold' you seem familiar with life behind tiie scenes of a theater.    Have you ever been on the stage?"
"No, but I have not gone unscathed.
Almost every girl who keeps in touch
with life in New York iB stagestruck at
some point in her career. So was I.
For more thnn a year I attended the
now defnnct Boucicault school of acting. Tho time as far as stage tuition
went wns wasted, but Bpucicault, with
Lis delicate face, snowy li.iir and caustic, witty tongue is a figure I c;in never
forget. His brilliancy was fairly scintillating, nnd I have to thank him for a
better knowledge of Shakespeare than I
could have hud without his aid."
As we chatted about many other
things, and I noted the inimitable Irish
humor that crept into my companion's
phraseology, the delightful play of expression in her face from grave to gay,
I inwardly decided that she possessed
the possibilities of an excellent comedienne.
"Can you tell me how you came to
write 'The Kiss of Gold?*" I asked.
"Can any one tell how an inspiration
is born? But the motive of the plot was
a moBt natural one, for the struggle between love and ambition goes on every
day in tho money getting atmosphere of
this city. I lived for years, u.itil very
recently, in dear old Chelsea square,
where the story is laid���New York'B ecclesiastical corner���and sometimes went
to service in the littlo chapel. Watching the students troop in looking like a
flock of ravens in their picturesque
gowns, I always knew I would somehow
or other make them figure in a s.tory. J.
made Tom Irish, because the reader
might more easily forgive his weakness
���that instability of purpose that is such
a frequent trait in the Celtic temperament, accompanying even good morals
and aspirations and intellectual strength.
There are many managers in New York
like Mr. Plunket. Old Mr. Kent is
Boucicault as far ns appearance goe;.
Delatole's selfishness and moral turpitude live in a man I have met, and it is
easy to conceive snch a man when placed
as a critic using his pen as a weapon of
threat arid attack. Women of Virginia's type, fortunately for human nature,
are not rare���quiet heroines who bear
burdens and never think of complaining."
A littlo maid appeared to say lunch
was ready, and Misa Jordan Uf tod her
eyebrows.
"How much we could accomplish in
this world if so much time were not
taken up with sleeping, dressing and
eating. And I have such a good appetite, and I can't get up early."
"When do you write?" I asked as I
rose to go, "and what are you writing
now?"
"I write in the morning always. At
night, if I have no engagement, I conn
up here and scribble. I've commenced
my first play���a farce. It seems very
laughable to me���still a manager may
find it a funeral. Besides that I uin
writing a new novel and doing aome work
for the daily press. You will admit I
haven't much time to be lazy."
The impression which clung to me as
I went down the sunny street was a
very pleasant one. I.iiss Jordon's vitality is strong, her desires earnest. If capability, originality, -jierseverence and
courage get their due reward, her success will grow witb her years.

The DeToliijimcqt of Punts.
While there have been many changes
in the styles of cunts and waistcoats,
trousers have come i.own to thepreseii-
not greatly dhanged. Diodorus Siculhs
says of the Belzie Gauls that "they wore
close trousers, which they called brnc-
cae." The Roman invasion brought Uir.*
legs to Britain, and the braccae of u.o
Gauls were discarded for the new ordtr
of things. When the Romans took leave
and were succeeded by the Saxon, the
braccae was compromised by a Btyle of
short, drawers reaching half way down
tiic thigh unci stockings coming up to
meet them. Tlie drawers were calle..
breech or hose.
The time of Elizabeth saw the covering of u um n's leg develop into a conspicuous part of the attire of a gentleman. Tho cavaliers wore what were
termed the petticoat breeches, and knee
breeches followed the absurd petticoat
pattern. Trousers for infantry were introduced into tbe British army Sept. 12,
1812, while cues und pigtails disappeared
by general order July 20, 1808.���Washington Stat.        _____
