The City Counoil met last evening, the
Mayor in the chair. There were present
Aldermen Nightingale, Cooking, Wilkes,
Morrison, Craig, Churchill, Wilson, Pleace
and Dobeson.
The minutes of the last meeting were read
and confirmed,
A communication from Joseph M. Brown
and a large number of other residents of
Irwin street was received, protesting against
the laying of an ash sidewalk on that street
and asking for an eight-foot w��lk. Deferred
for discussion.
The committee appointed at the last
Couucil meeting to report on the purchasing
of tho electric light plant, reported, and
was deferred till later for discussion.
The report of the street work done by the
city employees during the week was filed.
The Street Committee had not a report
rcdy and asked leave to report at next
meeting.    Leave granted.
The Council went iuto Committee of the
whole on the report of the Finance Committee; the Mayor in the chair. The several
items were gone over, and it was found the
revenue of the city was $35,055. The tired
and incidental expenditures amounted to
$27,962, leaving a balance of $7,093 for
current expenses.
In answer to un enquiry, the City Clerk
said that about $1,400 had been expended to
dute.
All. D beson wau ed information with re
gard lo the advance io the'salary of the city
clerk to $900, and his assistant $720; the
grant to the Y. M. C. A. of $100 and the
Miij or's grant of $500,
Aid. Pleace explained the several items to
the satisfaction of the council.
With regard to the Mayor's grant it was
felt that the entertaining of visitors was
more than could be expeoted of the person
who filled the civic chair, and as the money
was left in the oity clerk's hands, who
would be able to give an account of the expenditure, the grant was 'only nominally a
grant to the Mayor.
Aid. Nightingale spoke in the same manner, and took occasion ��� to refer in complimentary terms to the Y. II. C. A. as being
deserving of the aid extended to it, and
moved, seoonded by Aid. Craig, the adoption of the detailed report.    Carried.
Aid. Cocking reported that the new bell
for the fire hall had arrived, and suggested
the asking for tenders for bell tower, and
placing bell in position.
Aid. Pleace Baid the matter was in the
hands of the fire wardens, and they would
visit and consult on the matter to-morrow.
Aid. Craig also said it was in the hands
of the fire wardens, .and it was resolved that
it be left in their hands to do as they think
best.
The Couucil went into committee of the
whole on the Street By-Law, Mayor Quennell iu the chair. The remaining clauses
were passed without amendment, and the
committee rose.
Council resumed, and after the By-Law
was j* ported, it was moved by Aid. Cocking aud seoonded by Aid. Pleace, that it be
read a third time and passed.
By-Law read a third time and passed.
Aid. Dobeson reported the wharf on
Front street as being built, and approaches
should be made to it. He was of the opinion that a retainiug wall would have to be
built.
After some discussion, no aotion was
taken.
Aid. Dobeson said a large, number of
drains from houses were discharging into
the streets and were likely to become a nuisance.
than could be of eight feet wide, and in the
present state of the city's finances, it was
best to go slow.
Aid. Craig moved to refer it to the Street
Committee, but Aid. Cocking spoke stiougly
of the advantages of narrow sidewalks and
would like to see more laid in every part of
the city, aad moved that the report of the
Street Committee in the matter of Irwin be
carried out.    Motiou adopted.
The report of the committee on purchasing the Electric Light Plant was taken up
and a discussion of the m .iter elicited the
fact that tlie aldermen wer- in favor of
mo ing with caution in the matter.
The report recominend*-d the engaging of
an expert to * xauiiiio the plant and report
ou its condition and value. They also said
Mr. Hunter would give every facility for
examining the books of the company in
order to form a just idea of the original cost
of the plant and present income from light
ing.
Aid. Craig moved that a competent man
be engaged to inspect the plant.
The Mayor asked if it was intended to
buy the plant, as, if bo, it was news to him
Aid. Craig's motion, being seconded by
Aid. Churchill, it was declared open for dis
cussion.
Aid. Wilkes thought it best to examine
the books before going to the expense of
employing an expert.
Aid. Dobeson agreed with Aid. Wilkes
and said it might be better to put in a new
plant, as electric machinery was not very
durable, and the advance in electricity is so
rapid, that a year or two makes quite a
difference.
Aid. Cocking said the light did not pay,
that many stores had discarded it and are
using gas. He would be more in favor of
purchasing the water supply if possible.
The contract with the electric company had
jour more years to run, and Mr. Hunter
will not give up the contraot unless he disposes of the plant.
Aid. Nightingale thought it as well to
learn as much on the subject as possible,
with which Aid. Dobeson agreed.
After Borne words from Aid. Wilson, Aid.
Cocking said he objeo'ed to the expense of
sending for an expert as he is sure it is not
a paying concern.
Aid. Pleuce said there was nothing in the
report binding on the council.
A1H. C'aig was of opinion an expert wns
necessary.
It was resolved to examine the books before calling in an expert.
Council adjourned till Monday next at
7:30 p. m.
MURDERER HIGGINS HANGED.
Spared the Shame (1) of Hanging With
Prendergast.
Chicago, March 26.���Thomas, alias
"Buff" Higgins, was hanged in the jail here
at noon. The wonderful nerve he exhibited
throughout the trial did not desert him at
the supreme moment. Shortly before the
hanging Higgins expressed special gratifiea.
tion that he did not have to suffer death ou
the same scaffold with the assassin Prender
gast, for whom he manifested the utmost
aversion and contempt. He made no remarks on the scaffold. Higgins claimed to
the last that he was a victim of police perse
oution and was being sent to death on per
jured testimony.
As the trap fell with a clatter the prisoners in the adjoining corridors set up a shout,
"Hang Prendergast! Hang Prendergast!"
and the little assassin oowered further back
in his cell trembling and muttering imprecations. Higgins murdered Peter McCooey,
an old city employee, last September. Higgins and two pals planned to burglarize Me-
Cooey's houae. Higgins entered while the
others kf pt watch outside. McCooey was
awakened by the noise, sat up in bed and
was shot by Higgins without a word.
Silver in India.
London, March 24.���There is less inconvenience felt in India over the stoppage of
the free ooinage of silver than might have
been expected. The real pressure has not
beeu felt yet, and will not until the rupees
at present in circulation are gradually withdrawn Irom the country.
up.
Aid. Wilson said the Counoil oould not go
back on the report of the Street Committee,
which was adopted by the Council.
Aid. Nightiogale spoke strongly against
the laying of any more eight foot sidewalks
as six foot and even four was amply sufficient.    More oould be laid in  these  widths

The Matabele Reconciled.
London, Maroh 26.���By a despatch from
Zanzibar, it is learned that the Matabeles
are beginning to reconcile themse'ves to the
British supremacy, which the death of King
Lobenguela has taught them to accept as inevitable. They are settling themselves to
the routine of oivilized life much faster than
oould be expected from such brave and
fanatical warriors.
Aid. Craig said he did not see how it
could be avoided, as it was well known that
water will run down hill. In many oases British supremacy, wn
there was no way to prevent it finding its Lobenp;ueleJios taught
way to the street.
Aid. Cocking said it would soon be dangerous to health if not abated, and suggested the putting down of   wooden drains.
In answer to Aid. Pleace as to what was
tilth, Aid. Cocking said soap suds, dish
water aud other things he might mention,
could be called by that name. In contfnua-
tion he said ho was in favor of stopping the
temporary work going on, and said it was
only a wasle of money, and was in favor of
Contracting a loan for the purpose of doing
work in a permanent manner
Aid. Pleace said that uothing was permanent, us lhero was always a large part of
the revenue of every oity spent in renewals.
Aid. Cocking explained bis meaning of
permaneut work, and pointed out its advantages.
Aid. Craig was of t he opinion that unless
there was sufficient incline to make the
water run swiftly, the box drains would be
greater danger to health than the present
way of letting it soak into the ground.
Aid. Nightingale agreed in regard to box
drains, and would like to see sewers built,
il the finances of the oity would allow it.
He had seen children throwing things into
the box draius. It would need constant
watchfulness to keep them from being filled.
No aotion was taken.

Parliamentary Procedure���Timber Revenue of this Province.
A letter from Ottawa contain* the following: A sum of $32,780 w��s derived from
bonuses, ground rents, royalties and dues
on timber cut from land in the railway belt
in British Columbia, being an increase of
$1,864 as compared with the previous year.
The total revenue from timber within the
railway belt was $223,641,
According to the report of the Department of the Interior, it is stated that the
operations of the topographical survey
branch last year were on a somewhat more
extensive scale than usual, a large money
appropriation for the purpose having permitted the numb r of survi-v parties in the
field to be increased. Iu 1', itish Columbia
one party which was set to work early in
the spring was found to be insufficient tomeet
the demands for uew surveys, and a second
party had to be organized. Their progress,
although slow, was satisfactory. The 'olul
number of acres surveyed last year in the
whole of Canada was 2,928,640, the largest
number for nine years past.
Judging from present appearances, there
is no reason why your members from British
Columbia should not celebrate Dominion
Day at their own homes. The government
manifest every disposition to push public
business; most of their measures are ready,
and the fact that the tariff revision bill will
he one of the first to come down, is significant that the administration does not propose to be responsible for any delay. Publio
measures in the hands of private members
do not promise to be numerous, although
some old friends are looming up as well as
one or two new ones. Dr. Weldon will
make a determined effort to get his bill on
the statute book which has for its object the
disfranchisement of electors who are proven
to have accepted bribes. The Sabbath observance bill will also again make its appearance io the hands of Mr. Charlton, and
once more he will endeavor to prevent the
publication of Sunday newspapers in British
Columbia, although he will make little or
no Hemur to tbe newspaper men of the effete
East, working on the Sabbath in order to
give him his newspaper for Monday morning'a breakfast table.
According to a report just issued by tbe
Government the work of the Alaska boundary commission last year included the making of traverses of three of the principal
rivers of the country, the Unuk, Stikineand
Takin, for some distance from the Coast, and
a topographic survey of the intervening
country. Latitudes and approximate longitudes of the stations at the mouths of the
above named rivers were determined. These
operations covered the greater part of the
territory adjacent to the Coast from Bur-
rough's Bay, at the head of Behm's canal, in
latitude 56 degrees, to Berner's Bay (Lynn
canal) in latitude 48 deg., 40 min. The
whole region is mountainous, and the
difficulty of surveying it was muoh
enhanced by the excessive rainfall.
It is        intended,        during        tho
coming summer, to carry on the topographical survey in the region extending northwesterly from Lynn Canal towards the 141st
meridian, and it is hoped that this season's
operations will complete the field work and
afford sufficient data for tbe determination
of the boundary in accordance witb the
treaties bearing on the subject. The time
fixed by the convention for the submission
by the Commissioners of their report expires
in two years from the date of their first
meeting or in November 1894. Iu view,
however, of the large amount of office work
and calculations necessary to render available the information obtained during the
I'rogros of the survey, an extension of time
has beeu granted tlie Commissioners for the
presentation of their tiual report to the 1st
December, 1895.

ALL ALOUT GLOVES.
6TYLE8 THAT ARE  FINDING  FAVOR-
THI PROPER CARE OF GLOVE8.
Suggestions Conceriiinir the Seleotion of
Gloves���Directions for Putting on Gloves
the Pint Time���How to Take Thciu Off
Without Destroying Their Shape.
The principal changes that mark the
fashion in gloves have to do with the
iratter of color mid manner of fastening.
This winter red is one of the most popular
colors, hence gloves lire to be seen in all
the red shades, including the red browns
and red tons, for day and street wear. For
evening wear there ia quite a choice in
colors. White and pearl are the most approved tints, though delicate tun is also in
good taste and any color worn to match
the dress, yellow, old rose, heliotrope or
any chosen hue.
For Indies' wear the walking glove is
of glace kid, four buttoned, with threo
narrow rows of stitching on the buck.
If the color is one of the red shades, the
stitohing will be of the same, or of scar

let er white, according to the wearer's
fancy. A new style of glove also popular for outdoor wear has a gusset let in
on the under side to afford ease in slipping on, the extra looseness being remedied by a clasp at' the wrist, which draws
in the glove and makes it a perfect fit.
For evening wear the mousquetaire cants
de Suede are the preferred style, according to Harper's Bazar, authority for the
foregoing.
In tj.OVe wearing, of course, the first object slluuld be to s* cr. ri' a perfect fit.
If a glove Ib of the right 8 an mil cut
much of its subsequent tr ictabi'.ity depends upon the way it is tlrst put on. It
should be perfectly adjusted tu the hand,
with every seam ."truight and true, each
finger pushed down to its proper place,
and the whole fitted smoothly. This will
require a little time, but it will be minutes
well vented, for the glove entering upon
its usefulness in this way will ever after be
found ready to the hand and iu every way
pleasing.
A writer in Good Housekeeping ndvi6es
that no attempt be made to button the
glove till the hand is perfectly fitted; then
begin at the bottom and proceed gently���
do nothing with gloves in a hurry. A
dress glove for visiting or evening wear
should fit closely and perfectly, but at all
other times those which have moro room
inside should be employed. For walking,
driving and other service, where prolec
tion of the hands is the object in wearing
gloves, they should be sufficiently lurge to
give the hands entire freedom.
As there is a right way and also many
wrong ways to put on the gloves, there
is ulso a right way to take them off. The
authority quoted Bays: They should never
be drawn off by the finger tips unless
they are old and very loose. Taking
them off in that wuy soon stretches the
ends of the fingers so that thoy can never
afterward be mad.* to give a pleasing fit.
Instead, take tits glove by the wrist and
draw it gently back over the band till
the second -joint of the fingers ia re.*.died.
It can then be dr.twn off by the finger
tips without damage. When it is than
taken off, the very best way to iro.it it.
is to leave the fingers distended, jvisi as
they came from the hand. When it is
next wanted, it will fit the baud much
more easily and look better than if it were
smoothed und flattened back into the form
of a new glove.
There are gloves for extreme oold weather lined with lambs' wool, and then there
are knitted mittens in silk that are durable
and easily put on and off.
Homely Hints.
Put a little soap on that creaking gate or
door hinge and permanently stop that Intolerable nuisance of a noise.
When anything is spilled on the stove or
milk boils over, making a suffocating
smoke, sprinkle the spot with salt and the
fumes disappear.
When frying eggs keep thi edges turned
up With a teaspoon as fast as they whiten.
This will keep them from being tough and
indigestible and make it easier to lift or
turn tbe egg without breaking the yolk.

NOT THE REMEDY.
The Victoria Times thinks that the Colonist has made out an excellent case against
the Dominion Government in the matter of
the appropriations for British Columbia.
We have taken the same line as the Colonist
in this matter, because we think that British
Columbia has been shabbily treated and
that the appropriations ought to be far more
liberal, considering the large sum this Province contributes to the Dominion revenue
every year; and this nothwithstanding that
large quantities of goods enter its ports
which are intended for the other provinceo,
the duty on which goss to swell the amount
apparently contributed by British Columbia
alone. We have no ma .ns of -ascertaining
what this amount is, as distinguished from
the money which the Province itself contributes to the revenne of the Dominion in
the shape of customs duties and excise.
But after making the most liberal allowance
for this, it seems io us ihat the appropriations for Britiah Columbia are wretchedly
small.
Nevertheless wo by no means agree with
the Times when it says that the way to
remedy the evil complained of is to change
the administration at Ottawa, and restore
the Liberals to power. The Times muat
surely be making a very heavy joke when it
suggests such a thing. It is notorious that
the Grits have always been unfriendly to
British Columbia. A Grit Government at
at Ottawa would be tor this Province a
change from the frying pan into the fire.
If we are not treated with what we consider
just liberality by the present Conservative
administration, we would certainly be
treated ten times worse, if the thing were
possible, by a Grit Government. After all
we owe to a Conservative administration
the Canadian Pacific Railway, which connects us with the rest of Canada, aud prevents British Columbia from being totally
isolated. If the Grits had not been defeated
in the general election of 187H and Sir John
Macdonald restored lo power, ihe C.P.R.
would not be built yet. Everyone remembers the Hon, Alex.n-ler Mackenzie's jeremiads over it, and lhe way in which he was
managing it. Everyone must remember
also the persistent oppoei ion of the Hun.
Edward Blake to the building of the road,
especially the Lake Superior section of it,
and the efforts he made to have it carried
no farther than to some point in the prairies
west of Winnipeg. This Province he designated a sea of mountains, and scouted as
ruinous folly any attempt to build a road
across it. The C.P.R., he said, would never
pay for the grease used upon the axles of its
cars. We know the result. Sir John Macdonald and the Conservative party had
faith in the road and Canada's ability to
build it, and now the C.P.R. iB about the
best paying road in Canada, and the Grit
lamentations over it have serveil only to
prove the narrowness, folly, want of statesmanship, and want of patriotism of its
leaders.
What would this Province be to-day
without the C.P R. and the communication
with the rest of Canada and the world beyond whioh it affords! For any British
Columbian to vote under any circumstances
for a Grit candidate, so long as any other
candidate whatever could be found for
whom to vote, would be nothing short of an
aot of treason to his own Province, and an
act of miserable stupidity also. But
this does not hinder British Columbians
from insisting on their rights>in the matter
of appropriations for the Province, and if
their complaints are properly supported by
their representatives at Ottawa they will
���finally be listened to by the Conservative
administration, and their just grievances
redressed, unless indeed the Grits should
succeed to power. If that event should
happen British Columbia and all the rest of
Canada would have abundant reason to
regret it.    ^^^^^^^^^^
A Paris despatch states that a panic was
created in a churoh at Gallien, near Grenoble, on Thursday afternoon. Twenty persons were injured, some mortally. There
were no arrests. It is not stated whether
the explosion was the work of anarchists,
but no doubt it was. No one but an anarchist would be abandoned enough to explode a bomb in a crowded ohnroh. The
anarchists ought to be made to taste of their
own medicine, if only to see how they
would like it.
PREFERENTIAL TRADE.
The United Empire Trade League of London gave a dinner on Wednesday to Sir
Thomas Mclllwraith, of Queensland, and
Hon. Robert Reid, of Victoria, Australia.
The Right Hon. James Lowther presided,
and in an eloquent speech advocated the
commercial unity of the Empire. Sir
Thomas Mclllwraith in his speech endorsed
the principles of the United Empire Trade
League, and said it was the universal desire
throughout the colonies to bring the different sections of the Empire closer together.
The leading men of the colonies, he said,
believed they saw the way clear to the attainment of this object, by a system of preferential trade between the mother country
and the colonies.
Preferential trade, if it were adopted,
might be made a real link of union between
the mother country and her colonies, but
unfortunately there is no chance of its being adopted so long as the Liberal party retains power. It might be different under
Conservative rule, if any real desire were
manifested by the British people to try the
system. But at present the British seem
wedded to free trade, right or wrong, with
very little regard to its results. These results for some time past have not been satisfactory, but it gives cheap food to the
masses, and any proposal to change or modify the national trade policy would be strenuously resisted, especially if it tended to
tax food, no matter how lightly.
This it is whioh makes the doctrine of
fair trade with foreign nations, and preferential treatment of the colonies, to be so
coldly received in Great Britain. The British are so used to free trade that many of
them think that they could not trade so
profitably with the colonies, if their trade
were mostly confined to them, as t hey can
with the word at large under the free trade
syBtem. It never seems to occur to most of
them that it is the duty of an imperial
people to sacrifice something, if need be, for
the extension and consolidation of the empire. What is the Empire or hs greatness
to them, compared with even a fractional
reduction in the price of breadstuff's? The
Little-England Radicals, of the Labouchere
stamp, who seem to imagine that England
would be better off if rid of her colonies altogether, would be sure to oppose furiously
any ministry that would dare to propose to
establish a system of preferential trade between the mother country and her colonies.
These short-sighted demagogues, who are
ready to disrupt the United Kingdom itself,
cast off the colonies, and abandon India, do
not seem to understand that if Great Britain
loses her empire, she will lose her trade and
manufacturing supremacy also; that prass
will grow on the streets of Liverpool, and
British ships will rot or rus**. in idleness at
its docks. And this is not the worst; British
workmen will have to emigrate or starve,
and where are they to go save to the colonies
and to the United States, the labor markets
of which are too much crowded already! All
this, we think, might be prevented, and the
prosperity, unity, and greatness of the
Empire tccured for centuries to come by
adopting a wise system of fair trade with
foreign nations, and of preferential trade
between the mother country and her colonies. Unless this is done the unity, and consequently the greatness and prosperity of
the British Empire cannot be long maintained. Sir Thomas Mclllwraith's words
were undoubtedly true, but they seem to
have fallen on deaf ears.

An Amkhi* an despatch says that it is believed in well-informed naval aud diplomatic circles in Washington that the Behi ing
Sea question is assuming au aspect of grave
importance. Tne meaning of this is, that
the Americans are beginning to fear that
they will be left by Great Britain to do the
policing of Behring Sea themselves under
the Paris award. This is certainly serious,
as the Americans had hoped that Great
Britain would bear half the cost. And in
fact she might as well do so, for if she refuses to send a fleet to look after the sealers,
she will have to send one to look after the
American patrol ships.

Mike Flynn of Northfield created a good
deal of sensation the other morning among
hiB fellow boarders by falling into a well.
Mike had been drinking rather freely and
consequently the result. A little girl who
was standing close by Bays, she does not see
how he managed to get out so easy as he
fell in head foremost.
A lively runaway occurred laat eveniug at
the crossing between the Wellington Hotel
and Jones k Co.'s store. A horse took
fright at an approaohing engine, breaking
loose from the harness and dumping the oo
oupants from tho rig, making a B line up
the track as far as the railroad depot, and
then taking the road to South Wellington.
The runaway was caught somewhere near
the old slope. The bug^y was badly
smashed, but the two gentlemen who were
driving are none the worse for the mishap
more than a besmearing of mud. The
buggy was the property of Mr. W. Keddy,
-of Nanaimo.
Mr. Evan Lewis, manager of the Carbonado Coal Company, Washington, returned
by yesterday's afternoon train, having made
satisfactory arrangements with Mrs. T.
Thomas, sister of Ebenezer Williams, the
unfortunate man who was buried alive in
the landslide a short time ago. Mr. Lewis
Bays the men are still at work removing the
debris, but there are tons upon tons left,
and so far the body has not been reoovered.
Mrs. T. Thomas haa aooepted a oheque for
$6000, and made an agreement that the company shall be free from further olaims.
Mary J. Williams, the young daughter of
the deceased, is to reoeive the
benefit of thia money. Her father
before leaving here for Carbonado,
left her, and in faot gave her to Mra.
'Thomas, in oase anything should happen to
him. Mr. Lewis has made ov��r the money
to Mrs. Thomas, the understanding being
that she ia to provide for the girl'a education. She has also promised to see that the
deceased shall have a respectable burial
when the body is found. Mr. Lewis is an
old friend of Mr. and Mrs. Thomas, having
-oome from the sain" place. Our Wellington
representative had quite a long talk with
him, and he predicts a great future for
Nanaimo. He says our ooal is far superior
to theirs, and that there is more ooal here
than ws are aware of. This makes his
.second trip  to Vanoouver  Island, and hs
says a great change has taken place since he
was here before. Mr. Lewis oame here on
behalf of the company, proposing this settlement, whioh has been accepted rather thin

 m
Cree Chiefs Object to the Kodak.
Considerable amusement was caused as
the train for the East was standing at the
depot on Saturday morning. A kodak fiend
stepped out on the platform and tried to got
a snap shot photo of some of the Cree chiefs
who regularly assemble there oo the arrival
of the trains to dispose of buffalo horns. The
noble red meu did not look on the "touch
the-'button" racket with favor, regarding it
as "bad medicine," and they tumbled over
each other in their efforts to find oover and
fet out of range of the instrument,
'he "artist" was, however, persistent,
and it was only after "Thunder
Bear," "Stick-in-the-mud," and another
brave, with a polysyllabic name, threatened
to spike the lens of the "devil "box" with
one of the buffalo horns which they carried,
and to let aome daylight into the head of its
operator, that the latter desisted and took
refuge in the car. The sachems of the Crees
may be safely approached with a quart
bottle, and they do not show abject terror
even at the sight of a loaded demi-john, but
they cannot stand a kodak. Tourists and
tenderfeet will please govern themselves
accordingly.���Medicine Hat News.

"Did you ever hear of a place called

what you consider an enterprising city and
believe that your looal daily paper is first-
class, write to the publisher of The Dailv
Telegram, Nanaimo, British Columbia, and
ask for a sample oopy of bis paper, and 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 aa good a paper,
Or obtain as good a looal patronage, or have
his paper as freo from dead-head or objectionable advertisements? A useful lesson
may be learned from Nanaimo."

KITCHIN'S    DREAM.
Business being oidy 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 t air and beard, and ruddy, honest
face, that showed unmistakably that he was a man who had
weathered it more ways than one, came to the gate and said "I
als<i have b en a worker, and seen much of the world and its
'ups and downs.' For forty years I was a miner���come along
with me aud I will show you s >mething worth the seeing." I laid
down my spade and involuntarily followed him. When on
Front street he said: "See you thoBe vessels in the bay? That's
the commencement of better times, and there are real good
times ahe.a ! fnr your good C ty of N-��naimo. The worst is past,
not to return for years, if ever, but that 1 guess you know yourself.   See you that tramway ?"   I could not, but thought I snould.
"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 seen some of the ups and downs of this wicked
world." "That's so," I Baid, "but 'Never Say Die,' is my motto,
and I mean to get there yet." "Well said," replied my friend,
"theu you will not regret this journey." From boat to train,
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, "tlere it is before your eyes, untold wealth;" and so it
was���unmistakably. We then followed, as I remember, the
track of the Khs1o-S1 can Railway. "In less than three months
from now, my friend," said he, "the rails will be down and
trains running into Kaslo; snd here we are in Kaslo itself. I
must, lem*e you now, make good use of your opportunity, and
if y. u have the puck 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, put 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 gont, 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'jt.     It may have arisen from the unbounded confidence I havt in the future of
KASLO

CHAPTEP* I.
It waa tho day after Tom Murray's revolt
He sat alone in his top floor dormitory
���t a table ranged with old letters, dusty
books, cravats, gloves, a few faded bou-
tonnieres, theater programmes and dog
eared manuscripts roll upon roll. A small
trunk, h;Uf filled, stood on the floor beside him and received his wearing apparel and books as he pitched them in indiscriminately.
Tom was not tidy. Cleanliness of person and a certain homage to fashion were
matters of religion with him, but he
could not live in an orderly room to save
his life. This alone might have betrayed
his Goltto origin had it not markedly
shown itself In appearance and temperament.
Tho thick hair growing closely over bia
forehead was black as astrakhan and as
Wiivcd. There was a striking unfitness
between his moody blue eyes and swarthy
skin. Dreamy, yet remarkably comprehensive in some mpments, were those eyes
of his and at other times almost opaque.
Something said or done could make the
pr.pils expand, a little door seem to open,
emitting a brilliant, blue flash, then discreetly close and the shadow fall apain.
His mouth was like a brave woman's,
full and finely curved, and his merry
smile showed teeth as white as a negro _
A stalwart, youthful figure, square shoulders that swaggered as he walked, easy
s; rides that carried him untiringly for
long distances, told of a wonderful reserve of strength. He was the Irishman
of Milesian antecedents without a touch
of the palo Saxon to blur the type. Although American born, there was probably his double among the strapping young
fishermen throwing their nets off the
coast of Galway.
A warning sun ray shot across hfseye-
llds and flashed beyond him like a needle
of gold, piercing the dusty dimness of
the room, before be turned the key in
the trunk.
"It's getting late. There's not a minute to spare." And pulling out his watch
hi) gave a kick to the chair beside him
where he had flung the long sleeved alpaca gown and Oxford cap worn by the
theological students in Chelsea square.
There lay the whole story of his revolt.   He had thrown them off.
Not for an hour, nor for a night, to
find them awaiting him in the morning,
bat forever, Until yesterday he had
worn these things as the insignia of a
holy calling. They were no more to him
now thau is a scepter to the king who
has abdicated.
"Poor old dadl He did want to see
me in the pulpit Tho picture I had
taken in these togs���how he loved it!
Well, it's all ovor for me. Goodby has
been said to every one. It's all over for
him too. I couldn't pain him so if he
were living."
He started np and took a turn around
the room, his eyes softening with feeling.
"I wonder if he knows I've cut It all-
surplice and psalter, fasting and praying. 1 wonder if he cares���nowr And
Tom thought of a newmade grave in a
western state.
"Perhaps he knows better than I conld
have told him in life," and he felt his
heart swelling, "that I wanted to please
him, but I couldn't���couldn't do it���because of the -something within me that
tugged and protested aud pleaded. Perhaps he knows."
The depression was short lived.
Lmightor closely follows sighing when
one is only 20, clean of heart and conscience and blessed���or cursed maybe���
with the mercurial temperament, the
gay irresponsibility that in a crisis of
life slips so easily into a plausible kind
of selfishness.
Tom gave u vigorous shake of his long
legs and commenced brushing his hair
aB if his life depended on getting ont its
obstinate wave, whistling us he worked.
To be sure, he had very little of his father's small patrimony left, and a very
misty future stretched before him, but
the world was brighter today than it had
been in years. Ho need do violence to
hi.-* inclinations no move, it was all ended now���nil that life whose douiandshia
soal had resisted, under which his rebellious heart had strained, How he had
hated the monotony of Itl Ho a preacher, when he so lovM tlie world and the
things thereof I What a mistake it had
been!
During the two years spent in the old
college hidden in a green, far western
corner of Twentieth street he had formed
no friendships. He was that marvelous,
isolated being, a college man without a
chum. The iuterests of his companions
were necessarily clerical. His thoughts
had beeu elsewhere, his burning desire
centered upon success, but by a path
that wandered far from the hush aad
sanctity of the church.
And yet there were some things of tbe
life renounced which the artist in hhn
would miss. The flow of music in the
little chapel���how often he had likened
the quivering intensity of thflpe rich organ notes to the throbbing of his own
unsatisfied heart���the altar sparkling like
an opa| under the candle light on saints'
days; the twilight that met one softly hi
tlie seoladed paths while the ohimesSo*
hi happier peak M the (UrkMM im**
eoed. Yes, the memory of tbsss wwld
remain with him forever.
At 8 o'olock he turned into Broadway.
The stream of late afternoon loungers
thronged that moewmy of fashion. He
braoed himself and looked around wttft
eager, obasrraa* eyea, for to bim who
know. Ifaetowo end \orm% * * mmtcH,
a tale of never failing, never en ling
charm. Tom felt a liflBKlp t** crowds
and the swing of the surging life. The
perfume from a bunk of rosea 0:1 tiie
street oorner came to iiim witli tin* thrill
nf an ir.':;>ii.*'.'.:on. A beau lift*.! woman's
sidelong glu;:ce gave warmth to 1 :s imagination. He was really beginning to
live.    He was free.
When nt It ngth hfi came to an abrupt
pause, he stood lief*'re a stage door. It
was half hidden down a small alley, an*l
half filled with Iho scenery a wa;;on was
unloading on the curb. He picked his
way through the debris, stooped his
broad shovellers to enter the small door
aad found himself tho center of a quartet of grimy eyed workmen.
The close buttoned individual who
guarded tlie entrance was seated in the
further shadow against a daub representing a cottage iutci ior. He screwed up
ono dusty eye beforo answering Tom's
question, and his voice was suggestive
of cobwebs:
"The manager? Is it Mr. Plnnketf 1
d'no.    Guess he ain't in."
"He wrote me to come today at 5."
"Did?"
For a moment he sat in puzzled rumination, his lerretlike glance npon tbe
stage entrance completely blocked. He
shook his head helplessly and then jerked
a dirty thumb over his shoulder, indicating a narrow iron stairway at the left.
Exhausted by the demand upon his endurance, he disappeared an inch or two
in his coat collar.
Tom was in no mood to cavil. He followed the direction of the dirty thumb,
cleared the steps in two bounds and
found himself in the back of the auditorium.
For the first time he stood in an empty
theater in the daylight How ghostly,
solemn, crude, it was! To a nature like
his, so sensitive to impressions, there was
something appalling about it. He felt
his enthusiasm ooze slowly, the hope that
had so buoyantly sustained him fall suddenly, as if a magie cord had been
snapped.
The curtain was raised on a disordered
scene; a pillar of papier mache lay prone
across the stage beside a piano swathed
in muslin; far up in the gallery the figure of a char woman was dim and uncanny, ber crooning sweeping across the
emptiness; a bar of sunlight fell aslant
the shadow and drank up the swirling
dust. It waB a beautiful body from
which the soul had fled.
How could he hope that some day each
of these folded seats woftld contain a living, thinking being who would listen
with interest, perhaps delight, to words
of his spoken on the stage, but coined in
a quiet room faraway from the crowd?
For this was Tom's dream���to be a
writer of plays that the world he loved
would applaud, to be a factor in the life
of the theaters around which for so long
he had secretly circled like a restless
moth.
He tried to throw off the sickening
doubt, walked down the aisle, and oi>eu-
iug a door at tho back of a proscenium
box found himself behind the scenes.
Gaslight and hurry were here. Scene
shifters moved about dragging bulky
pieces of scenery, swearing at each other
in hoarse whispers. At a desk under a
flaring gas jet screened by wire a large
mau sat toying with his watch chain
while he leisurely dictated a letter to u
stenographer. A few men, whote blue
s'laven lips proclaimed their calling, ob-
sequio*usly awaited his pleasure. Tom
joined th' -roup. A little crease grew
between lua brows as he fixed his eyes
imploringly on tbe potentate who held
Ids happiness in his hand.
But he had little misgiving as te the
final answer. Surely his play was ac-
