London, Dec 27 ���Despatches received
by city houses through South African merchants, nport. the British South Africa
Conipaiy'-i force under Captain Wilaon, 40
strong, to have been massacred by the
MaUbele.
LONDON, Dec 27��� It was reported this
afternoon that Captain Barrow, who was
sent across the Shangani by Major Forbes
to reinforce Captain Wilson and who shared
with him the command of the consolidated
column**, had been lo.ct with all his men.
Late in the aftern ion, botvover, general
opinion in th*; city discredited all reports of
a massacre.
London, Dec. 27.- Confirmation haa beeu
received from several  commercial sources of
the report of the  total  annihilation of Captain Wilson's force.    It lacked confirmation
by official messages, but  it  is generally accepted aa true.    After  the  defeat of   King
Lo Bengula   at   Buluwayo, he   fled  to aud
acrosa the Shangani   river   pursued  by the
British.    Captain   Wilson   and   about   40
men    left    the    main     pursuing     column
and crossed the Shangani after the enemy.
Shortly after he crossed, the  river began io
riae, and hia retreat was   cut off.    Soon  reports began to be received  that  the  whole
force  had bpen  killed   and   they   were be-
j lieved at the Colonial office, though no  offi-
i cial   despatches   were   received  to confirm
! them.   0 i Dicemher 12th a report was telegraphed from Cape Town that Captain Wil-
I son's    force had   difeated   the   Matabeles
, under Lo Bmgula and that the  natives had
1 fled.    This  report, however,  like  those of
| the massacre of lhe force,waa not confirmed.
It waa then aleo said that  Captain  Wilson
waa   understood   to   be   making  for   Fort
Charter as the   rise in the river  prevented
his return to Buluwayo.     The advices  now
received indicate that the firat reports of the
maa8acre of the force were probably correct
��nd that instead of defeating the Matabele8,
the latter annihilated the Wilson force.

industry showed brighter signs. The cotton
trade esp oially suffered from the coal strike
and increased foreign competition. Only
10,006,000 pounds weight of cotton were
purchased, whereas during ihe first eleven
m. n'.hsof 1892 .similar am, uni, waa obiuii.eJ
fioui lhe United States alone. There has
been an unbroken decline since 1891 in the
quantity and qtviljty <,f these goods for the
east, and although most eastern countries
have iucreaBed their demand for cotton
goods and the returns      show
marked improvement the eastern demand, on the contrary is waning.
The orders for China aud Japan are gradually growing smaller and Turkey alao has
required leas. The American trade has
steadily advanced, What effeot the change
in tho tariff of the Unitid States, will bring
nb ut, is a matter of coujeoture. The Liu-
cashir** merchants did not fear 'he McKinley
tariff because they sent their beat goods to
the S'ates. If the McKinley tariff has had
any effect, therefore, it has to increaae the
cotton trade, which in lhe first eleven
months of 1893, exported generally
1,339,586 pounds, thia being an increase over previous yeara. Brazil
and the South American republics were
laige buyers, but not half the quantity was
shipped to Chdi as in 1892. The woollen
trade be-.ts a bright aspect. Germany is
our beat customer for woollens and worsted
yarns, taking nearly half the g oda exported. The export of woollen tissues amounted in the first eleven months of 1892 to
4,8,15,158 pounds, compared with 5,231,140
pounds in the mme months this year. The
exporta of worsted tissues, which amounted
to 8,104,560 pounds in 1892, fell to 7,561,732
poui ds in 1893.

A Possibility of Separation.
London, Dec 27.���The   Times   prints
special Berlin  article   on   the   relations of
Sweden aud Norway.    It saya there is every
reason to believe that the king of Sweden is
prepared to use force to maintain the  union
between the two couutries. It is unquestionable that the  Swedes,   who   were   at   first
apathetic, have been aroused by the altitude
of the Norwegian radicals to such slpltoh of
exasperation that little  more   might  eaaily
goad them into action.    At the  same  time,
although     there    is     a     strong    military
j pa* ty in Sweden,   the   nation   as   a   whole
would think twice before it unde -took risks
! which might   entail  foreign   complications.
��� Denmark has  i-uch  strong   sympathy  with
j Norway that the creation   of a Norwegian
: repuh ic would greatly endanger the Danish
; dynasty, a>nd I bereft re   a   scheme   is   con-
j ceived in high quarters,   that   if   separation
becomes nece.*-8iiry it might  be   feasible   to
place Prince Waldemar of Denmark   on the
throne of independent Norway to   found   a
Norwegian   dynasty.       Prince    Waldemar
is 45 years old and haa  three   children,   all
boys.

Strained Relations.
London, Dec. 27.���Strained relations with
the Empire of Japan have sho �� n themselves
within the last  forty-eight   hours,   and are
causing concern to Mr.   Gladstone   and  his
ministry.    Six years ago   the   Conservative
administration acceded lo the request of the
Japanese Government that a naval offioer of
|distinction should be  ats'gued   io   duty in
I bi half of that government as a special naval
| adviser.      Captain   Inglea,   of   tho   Royal
j Marines, was selected as the heat man iu the
United Kingdom to fulfil   the requirement
of the pnaiti'Ui.    The   s'X   years   expire on

MONTEVIDEO, Dec. 25.���Advices from Rio
si) General Tulles, who had ojo of hia legs
shot off recently by the insurgents during
au attack upon Governor's Island, died today. Ciptain Picking's' refusal to give
American vessels in Rio harbur ull lhe pro-
tec ion they desired from rebel fire while
lauding cargoes, is asserted by aggrieved
irhiptnastcrs to be a virtual recognition of
the insurgents as belligerents, aud their
view ia evidently chartd by American merchants iu this city. These persons say Captain Picking's report of the situation to Sec-
re'ary of the Navy Herbert have been so
v���gue as to be absolutely misleading and
they declare a firm stand taken just now
hy the American naval officers here would
be a material aid in biiuging about a satis
fictory ending of the revolution.
Nkw YoKK.Dec 25.���The Herald's Bahia
despatch aays : The Nictheroy sails to-day
from Pernambuco for the south. The name
of lhe destination has uot been mnde public,
and it is not even known to any of the crew
except the commander.
Peknamiuvh, Dec. 25 ���The situation of
affairs haa very matetially changed in this
cily within the last few hours. Until this
morning Perraniluco believed its harbor
was to be the scene of a big naval battle between the Rt public* aud Aquidaban on one
side and the Nictheroy dynamite cruiaer on
the other. News received here this morning changed t he �� ho!e aspect of affairs. The
rebel wart hips, it waa then learned, were
not on the way to Peruumbuco, but had
sailed toward the island of Fernando
de Noronha, where there is a
large convict settlement. The revolutionary
admiral's object in going to Fernando de
NorLnba, which is ovir 100 milss from the
main coa8t, ia to compel so manyjable-bodied
convict8 aa he ran find in the aettlemeut to
go aboard the vessels and join the crewa. It
is said lie expects to secure uot leas than
1,000 men in this way. Upon receipt of
this news aboard the Nictheroy there was
great activity. Members of the crew were
sent ashore in small boats to search through
the town for such of the Nictheroy's men as
had been allowed land leave and hurry them
back to the ship this afternoon. When
oil the men biloiging to the Nictheroy's
crew hud heen gotten aboard the
government battleship, file weighed
anchor, steamed out to tea and pointed her
nose for north-cist. It is understood the
NiotheroyB destination is the island ofFern-
andodeNotuni.il If this information is
coirect, the lo''-,* fxpeoted sea battle between the revolt tionist ami governmeut war
vessels will in all probability bo fought wi'h-
in a short time.

Then in respect to the   settling   of  small
homesteads, it might be as well to spend  a
little more money on the  roads and  enable
theae settlers to get their   produce   on   the
market.    He  did   not   disapprove   of   the
Piemier'a acheme for all   tbat povided   he
will give this chance to the settlers  we   already have.    Ins'ead of aiding  them   financially it would be better to give them  roads
and he thought if they got  the   roads  they
would not need   much   financial   aid.    Another pdnt was the   exclusion   of   Chinese
from the mines.    Petitions sigued not alone
by miners but by   business   men,   mmufac-
turers, merchants,   lawyer-,  and  pnaohers
too had been presented   to lhe  Government
every winter for  the  exclu-iou   of  Chinese
from the mines but they took uo   notice   of
it.    He thought, as one who had worked  in
the minea it was extremely necessary that we
should luve men who were capable of understanding the (igus used in the mines,  it was
\ery eaaential to have intelligent, competent
men working in the mines  where   there   is
gas.    Where there are say 300   men   working in a mine every man haa the lives of the
whole   number   on   his, shoulders.       The
Hon.    Premier has spoken  about  his   railway  policy  and  told  us about the magnificent financial standing of this province in the
money markets of the  world.    How  could
we  have any  other than  a good standing
when our resources are known.    Lock at the
lumber of our country, the beat iu   quality,
look at the fish industry.    It is  not because
of the excellence   of   the   Government that
our standing ia good in   the   markets of the
world.    This present Government is guaranteeing the interest on railway  schemes   and
h->   believed   he   was   not   misrepresenting
when ho aaid it was part of   their policy to
gu rurten tho pri::cip:tl   too.    He   believed
he (Mr. Davie) had   said   the   Government
guarantees the principal to  certain  promoters g 'ing to wot k to build  for  say 8200,000
or ��300,000 which they put in their pockets.
He said it was a mighty   ticklish   piece   of
busiuess guaranteeing the principal  as   well
as the interest   on   money   invest* d in railways.    He had read reports   in   the papers
that the Ni.kusp   and   Slocan   railway was
being cooalrue'ed in a most flimsy   manner,
and when   a   Government   guarantees   the
principal and interest for building   railways
he believed it   was   better   for the Government to own them   themselves.    Now, continued Mr. Foster, if   instead   of   throwing
money away on Government buildings it bad
taken part of that money   and   struck out
into the interior he  thought that   was   the
proper way to do.    Mr.   Davie   haa   taken
some trouble to impress upon   you that   all
the di^sitisfacion on the mainland has been
done  away   with and   he tails   about   the
people who have been advocating separation.
He wanted to aay, that since he v as elected
to represent Nanaimo  district, although  he
had lived on the   mainland,   he  had   never
taken any part  in local  politics there,   but
he did go up to Kamloops to see  for himself
how the   Government stood   up there,   and
when the   Premier telle   you,   there   is   no
dissatisfaction up there, that   lhe people are
satisfied    with   the   Government,   he   was
leading you astray; they are not satisfied up
th��re any more   hey are he e und tit y   talk
about the Government   in a way   be   would
not like to hear.    When   a  man   docs   not
agree with the Government   they oall him a
crank, that is what they call them iu Westminster.      The   Premier   was    courageous
enough to address a meeting   there and   he
gave him credit for that, beoause   if ever a
man     had     a      meeting      agains*      him
he    found     he    had     it     there.    In    respect   to   the     bridge     at     Westminster
he knew that at that time seme people there
were of the opinion that Mr. Brown  should
keep hia mouth abut, because they said they
wanted that bridge, but it is to the lion, r of
Mr. Brown that he did not  keep his mouth
shut, that  he  still   said  what he  believed
about, the Government building, the Government could  give   the   bridge or not as they
plea8*d.    He believed that was the way the
votera should  look at. it.    There  is an attempt in a certain quarter to make the people believe that in making the  Government
aware  of the   wants  of   this   district   the
members   have   not   done  their duty.    He
Baid  thiB was  false.    Tbeie  was only one
thing   and it waa   done   too   Budd nly   for
'hem.    The Government passed the School
Act,   which   was   going to   leave   Nui'iimo
without Behools.    He had a-ked Hon. John
Robson afterwards to consider the matter
but lie would not.     As  Mr. Keith  said, he
also tvent down to Viotoria as au independent toimber of  that   House.    The  Govern-
Rio|monl   in the   beginning introduced   one  or
two good measures.    Iu regvdtolhe wild
lands tax, he (Mr. Foster) was a member of
that House and  proposed a change from   an
acreage basia lo  an   ad  valorem tax  which
Mr. Brown seconded  and  the  Government
were so impressed that they withdrew their
bill and broucht it in as we  wan'ed  it, and
he ws glad to hear Mr.   Davie say he pro-
posed to eo   further.    But  there are  other
things the Government  will  have to   do.
The ' 'otntiiisstoner of Lan-ls and Works pro-
posed changes in the Land Act  making  the
period of residence  from six months to ten
months, but he believed  if the Gove nment
Irani ed to do right  they would   not  know
how.  A man cannot possibly live on a raueh
ten months in u year and make hia living on
it.    They ought to put better  improvement
conditions in, und as long aa a man can put
improvements on his place  he  should be allowed to go and work where he pleased. He
hoped when  the   time   came   to  elect new
men (he did not expect,  to run for Nauaimo
dis'r ot, he snid) that the people would judge
the Government   on its  past  works, not on
its promises, aud if  they judged that Government on its  past  record  it  must be defeated.    There  has   neon   nothing done by
the  Government   in   accordance   with   its
platform, except, the  bnnusing of some railways.    They  have   taken   no stand on the
Chinese question, they have tried to take the
management of the schools down to Victoria.

But they have been forced hy the independents and by those who backed up the
independents into certain measures. ihen-
record is bad but Mr. Davie has promised to
make cert un chtngea in respect to taxation
so as to stamp out speculators and says that
the province is in such splendid condition
that they can go in and borrow money and
spend it for public works. He means we
can get lots of money now to bonus railroads
but if ho keeps on in that line it won't be
very long before our standing in the market
is impaired.
Mr. McKenzie said on   taking   the   platform, that, for his part the Premier need not
have come to Nanaimo  to praise   the   Government.    Look  at   his  own   organ.   The
Daily   TblbQBAM;   that   paper  Btates   in
almost every issue that Nanaimo   ia one   of
the most neglected districts in the province,
and he says quite   righlly   it   ia   so.    The
Premier  has   heen   travelling   in  different
parts     of     the     province     and   be     has
come     down      at      last     to     visit     ua,
and saya that thia ia an   important   district
and  furnishes  three-fourths of all the exports of the province.    But why  is it that
Nanaimo has been so neglected that we ouly
have   his   presence   here   to-day?   It  just
shows that Nanaimo  has   been   thoroughly
neglected.    He would not trust the Government to run a ranch.    That was the conclusion be had come to, but he would any that.
he had not opposed them on  every occasion
although  he bad   promised  to  do so.    He
gave them a  liberal  support  whenever   he
possibly could, which was very rarely.    He
had to admit that   the   honorable   Premier
was one of   the smartest men  in the province and if he only  belonged to the opposition he had no doubt they eould make something of him.    He was the  only man worth
mentioning in his cabinet, and we must give
him credit for that.    He  had   told  us that
the country was  decidedly  prosperous, but
Mr. McKenzie denied that. Everywhere you
went,   Viotoria,   Nanaimo,   Vancouver   or
Westminster it was the same, and win was
to blame for it.    It  was   solely on account
of the vast natural  resources of the  proviuce that it waa aB prosperous   as   it   was
to-day.    Mr.  Davie   spoke, he said, of  the
financial  credit of the  province, but   they
do not know Mr. Davie   in Eugland���they
simply judge the   province   by   what it is;
by  the   showing    it    makes.      While    he
blamed   the   present Government   for  neglecting   the   city of   Nanaimo, he  wouid
say it was true equally of   the  opposition;
they also neglected Nanaimo district and he
thought both sides  were  equally to blame
in the matter, but be  hoped now that the
Premier has been   here  be  would   make a
change for the   better.    He had found out
that anything  he   recommended personally
was sure to  be   knocked in the head.    He
had tried to get others to work for Nanaimo
district hut could not get t'*em.
Mr. Davie's Reply.
In rising to reply, Mi. Diviesaid  he felt,
pleased and thankful foi t'ie good-humored
way in which the last speaker and in fact all
the speakers had  dealt  with  the  subjects.
Now, he (Mr. McKci z ���) tells u-* as regards
the local wants that both the opposition and
the Government have been equally to blame.
No doubt there has been   n m u y districts a
certain   amount of   n glcjt, still  he denied
that they were in the  deplorable  condition
here, Mr. McKenzie says they are.    On the
coutrary, the roada have bem  well  kept in
thia district, a*, least us well  kept or better
than in aome   other   parts of the   province.
He Baid he had heard that Cowichan  was a
favored district,   but  he  had  been iu Cowichan when the water had risen  over  three
feet.     The  roads  in  this   district on  the
whole have been well looked after.    He did
not pretend to aay everything wus as well as
it   could   be   but   they    have    not    been
neglectid.    Now, he tells us he would  not
trust the government  to run a ranch.    No
more would he, nor  would he like  to  trust
Mr. McKenzie  himself.    Iu  regard  to  the
statement, about bia owning an  organ  heie
he wished to say emphatically  t at be  had
no more to do with The  Daily Telegram
than any oue of them.    He  Baid :    "I  had
no more to do in counselling or aiding it  in
coming to Nanaimo  than  any one of  you."
He was not even   consulted   about it.    He
said the gentleman who  started it here  did
so without having asked the government tor
support, and   that   was all he   hid   to  say
about The Daily Teleoram,   So long as it
is well conducted, he was satisfied  that a
morning paper would be acceptable  to  the
people of thia place.  (Applause.) He said he
waa told the Government were going to be in
opposition the next time, but he   waa not a
prophet nor the eon of a prophet, and  if he
were to forecast that the Government   were
going lo be in power, he  might   say   something he might be i-orry for afterwards.    In
the matter of schools, it  was not   be  said,
thatNanaimo was less justly treated than the
remainder of the  province  but   that   Nauaimo waa not in aa good a position   to  meet
the change aa other portions of the proviuce
were.    This matter had heen brought to his
attention by the   Board  of   Trade   and  he
hoped the Government would   ace   its  way
clear to deal us well with Niinaiino   us   they
had done with the other cities prior  to   the
new aot coming into operation.    Mr. Foster
stated that what little good the Government
has done had beeu forced on  them   by   the
independents iu the House.    He would like
to ci mpure thnt statement wi' h   what  was
said by Mr. Keith, that, for the firat two   or
three weeks afier he wob returned he voted
with the Government and   got   al* ug   very
Well, but he telle us that at the end of three
weeks they found out they could   get  along
without the   independents,    The   Government had a majority over both   the  opposition and the independents combined.    Yet
they turn around and tell you   that   unless
they forced the Government they could  get
nothing.      It   is    perfectly   tiue  that     a
change      in      the       wild       land       tax
was    advocated    by   the independents and
tried by the Government,   but   he   was not
sure it was a wise change, for as a matter of
fact no more revenue is collected   under the
plan of 7i cents than the   per   capita.    Ten
years ago, when the Government   came into
power, they found lauds taxed $50   an acre
which have been raised   to   ��500.    Now we
are told by Mr. Foster that the Chief   Commissioner of Lands and works had acted unwisely in the change in the laws as  regards
settlers'duties; he had  changed   the time a
settler might be away from his  land  to two
months.   But if a man wants   to   be absent
as a regular thing for Bix months be   has no
right to hold the   premises   at   all.    There
may be occasions when a man may   have to
be absent; for instance if   he   has no money
and wants to get   something   to buy stock,
then he has a right to  go   and   work at his
trade in order to get the money to buy stock
and cattle, but there are otherB who   do not
leave their farms for any such   purpose and
whose object is merely to   hold   on to their
pre-emption for   speculative   purposes, and
we want to put a stop to that.    We allow|a
man to   be   absent   two   months, but if he
wants to be away longer let him satisfy the
Commissioner that he has  some   bona fidt
reason and he will   get   permission.    Some
argued   that   theie   wus   n >   dinger   fiom
Chimse in the mines, but   for   his   part he
would rather see them excluded.   However,
while such an action wp.s proposed as regards
Chineae not one word  was said agaiust   the
Japanese until the last session.    There  was
uo proportion   of   that   kind.     There   are
others just as   dangerous   as   the   C'linese.
Italians or Austriana and others who do not
understand English and   are  therefore  unable to receive orders when at work are just
us dangerous, but uot aword was Baid about
them.    It  appeared   there   was   no   more
danger from Chinamen thau from  Japanese,
Austrians   or   Italians.    There   are   grave
difficulties in the way  of   passing   such  au
act.    It iB a question whether it would   be
constitutional to pass an act excluding one
nationality   from   a   particular occupation
while   others under   similar  circumatanceB
wero permitted  to contiuue   at   the   Bame
work.    It was claimed   by  the   owners   of
minea that such a law wua  unconstitutional
and could not be carried e it and if   it   waB
passed it. would be the cause of opening   up
endless litigation.    The argument advanced
by him and others was that we did not want
to eiicouttigo that kind of a fight.     If it had
been tested and established that the owners
had tho righttoemployChinamenthey wou'd
havo hud the mutter  in  their   own   hands.
Now, at the present time and for some years
there hus been   a   voluntary   agreement  in
this matter not to allow a   Chinese   in   this
place and surrounding minea to work   under
ground.    The view he took was that  it was
far better to allow the   mutual   understanding to go on  aud not   provoke  unnecessary
hostility.    It is far  better   not   to   try   to
interfere with this  good   understanding   as
between  miners  and   men   by  introducing
legislation which might possibly   break  up
the existing arrangement.    This   was  lhe
view of the matter that lie took and   consequently he deemed it unwise   to   introduce
legislation that might be set aBide.    We are
told tho country could not   help   haviug   a
good status in the   money  markets   of   the
world considering its lumber and other  products aud that the Government   is  entitled
to no credit for this  state of   things.    Ona
moment's con tiderat ion will show  you   that
ia wrong.    The lumber and coal  have  beeo
here fur centuries and has been to   some extent developed and known to exist   as   well
aa ita fish for the last  20 or 30   years,   and
how     is      it      then      that       the     pro
vince   has    not     been   able    to   get   on
a   good   financial   basis   before?   Do    you
mean to tell me the Government  has  nothing to do with  that.    Men  before  lending
their money go aud inquire into our Government.    He  did   not   say   they   knew  Mr.
Davie or any one of the Government but he
had no doubt the Government  had heen inquired into aud knew tint the Governmeut
had had a great deal to do with the matter.
Iu this question of the exclusion of  Chin' se
from the mines it had been staled  lint the
Government persiste ,tly  voted ugainst  the
proposition, but the   speaker did   not  p'ace
that matter before them fairly, he  did  not
tell the reasons   the   Government   gave   for
their action.    Pussine  on to  Borne  of  the
criticisms   of    lhe   Government's     railway
policy aud their action on tho appointment
of official lumber scalers the Prerhi *r reiterated bis remarks in his  opening  address in
reply and then  took up tbe   matter of   the
parliament buildings.    This  was  undoubtedly   a   dead   issue    now.      Mesara.   McKenzie      and     Foster     had     taken    exception      to     this      view     but    iu     bia
opinion  they   could   not   see  farther than
their no8eB,    Almost everyone admitted the
neces8ily  for   moie   buildings.    Even  Mr.
Foster   would   have   voted  for  a grant of
$150,C?0.     He  could not speak for his colleague, Colonel   Baker, in   reference  to the
statement attributed  to him ilnt the Government wanted to anchor the capital.    He
may have Said so  but he (Mr. Davie) had
not h* urd him.    However, it is in the interest of the country to have thia question definitely settled end there   hatl  been no objection to Victoria as a site for  Ihe new build
iugs.    Victoria it might be said is the gate
wuy to the province  and  there is some reason lo the contention that substantial public
buildings erected at this point  will make a
good impression on visitois to the province.
It will show that the Government and people have confidence in  their country.    One
hundred and fifty   thousand   dollars would
have put up very   ahabby  buildinga indeed.
The Government concluded that it was necessary to do the woik, and   that   what was
worth doing was worth  doing well, and so
decided to erect buildings that would be a
credit to the province.    Iu  this  they were
only doing what other countries had done.
Mr. Keith   tells   us   that he opposes the
giving away of lands and that thecountty
should keep  them, and  in   replying  to the
Crofters scheme that the whole of the public
lands     had      been    given     away.      This
statement   was   absurd.    The   lauds   were
exempt from laxea for only live years which
was to have been one of  the   cons derations
for the expenditure of au  immense   amount
of money in  the   development   of   our   resources.     Public   hinds unsold yield nothing
to the Government bul when once  sold   arc
subject to luxation,   and  are   thereaf er   a
continual source of revenue  to the   Govern-
ment.    The first sale price is of   small   ini
portance. The luxes are   what   the   people
want so aB to reduce our ol her tuxes.    Were
the Government to keep the lands it   would
reduce lhe people to the position   of   slaves
The true principles of   government   are   to
transfer lhe lands to private   ownerships 80
that the country o.n reap the   benefit  from
taxes,    Tne eharg"s   that   lhe   parliament
buildings were being erected in   Victoria   to
increase ihe value of lands owned by  ministers were too absurd   for   nolice.    So   also
were the charges that the court  house   wu8
elected in Vancouver because   Mr.   Home
owned pioperly in close  proximity   there o
and the bridge   in   New   Westminster   he
i*uu...e Mr. Punch had   owned   property   in
that vicinity and had accepted these as   the
price of their support of  the   Government.
He had always considered Mr.   Keith   and
Mr. Ftmter honest meu   but  he   would   remind them to remember that men  who   are
alwaya  parading   their   own   honesty  and
claim that they are the only honeat men are
always looked upon with suspicion.
Regarding the charge made by Mr. Keith
that Nanaimo was made a suburb of Victoria in reference to court matters he Baid
he could only repeat hia reply to the Board
of Trade on the previous day which Bbuwed
conclusively���and any lawyer in the city
would endorse the statement���that it was
his Government that had emancipated thiB
city and diatrict from Victoria in court
business.
As he told the Board of Trade the day
before a registry offioe would come in due
time. It cannot be done in a few months
The creation of Kamloops district as a sop-
ai.i* e land registry district entailed a work
of nearly a year in transcribing tbe records
at Viotoria. This had just been completed
and while it was going on the transcribing
oi records for the Nanaimo district could
not possibly have been done. The local
members knew this very well.    He   hoped, |
however, in the near future to be able to
begin work in this direction f**r Nanuimo
Mr Keith had auid that not one
railway out of lhe twenty given
franchises bad ever been built or operated.
He was about right perhaps but he (Mr.
Davie) oould say that since the granting of
the charter to the Esqnimalt and Nanaimo
Railway Company not a single railway grant
had been given with a perpetual freedom
from taxation. The fact that roads were
not built could not be helped. This was
the case in every new country. The Government were only anxious to see the
country opened up and settled.
When Mr Keith said that the Government hud full information laat session on
the census question he was making an nb-
aurd and rash statement. Except, him-
self and bis colic >gues no one kue-v the information the Government had. However,
no matter what the Government might do
Mr. Keith aud Mr. FoBier would be dia-
aatiafied.
The Premier again thanked them for the
splendid reception he had received and the
meeting dispersed.

Christmas Day at Kuper Island.
The recent Christmas tree at Kuper Island, given by Mr. and Mrs. Roberts to the
Indians of the Mission, at the church, wus a
pronounced sneceas. The morning service
was largely attended by the Indians and
white people from the surrounding district
and was imprcsdvely rendered by Rev R. J.
Roberts. The decorations of the church
were very pretty, aud the ladies and gentlemen taking part iu the work are to be congratulated on their excellent taste. In the
evening the Chris'mas Iree was denuded of
its ornaments and presents, and the delighted siwushes anil klootchmen who by their
radiant, faces, expressed their appreciation
of their gifts, departed home. The Rev-
rend Mr. and Mrs. Roberts wish to thank
the merchants and others in Nanaimo who
so generously contributed towards the store
of good things th it were given to them for
the Indians at the Christmas tree festivities
on Kuper Island.

MORE    MISREPRESENTA TION    OF
MR.  DAVIE'S SPEECH.
The Viotoria Daily Times of Tuesday reports Mr. Davie as speaking as follows of
himself in his address at the Opera House of
this city ou Saturday -.
"It will be for you to say in a few months
if you wish to change the government.
While I have no intention of relinquishing
the reigns of governmeut, it will matter
little to me if you people decide otherwise
as I have a very lucrative practice and
therefore it will not affect me. I have acquired wealth aud lands; wheher wisely or
unwisely, 1 desire to see the province prosper. If financial circles had not had confidence in the government the province would
not be placed second iu the colonial money
circles of the world. It will rest with you
whether we are to go back to power or not."
What Mr. Davie did say on this point
was:
"While having no intention of relinquishing the; reics of government unless the people de.iired it, to him pereoniUy to be iu
politics was a matter of loss tiuincially, as
those who have know., htm ktmw that he
had a lucrative praotice, which he has been
compelled to relwquith; iu fuc lie would bo
better off from a point of personal profit if
he were relegated to Btay at home. He had
shown them be w,,s m*i blind t** the vas*
interests of this country and the great responsibility which rested upon him. Everything he had made ,n his pruc ice he had
wisely or unwisely invested in this province
aud ha*l uo desire bul for the welf ,re of the
province whioh meant also his own individual tucce.ss."
It seems rather a p ior policy on the part
of the Opposition press, and poor as it is
very unscrupulous, thus to misreport the
Premier, and lo put in his mouth words and
seutimente which he never uttered or dreamed of uttering, Yet this seems to be the
best that the Opposition press and so called
Independent press of British Columbia is
capable of doing. This is surely a miserable
style of political warfare, and will no*, succeed because it does uot deserve to do so.
The report in the Times also Bays that before Mr. Keith rose to speak a vote of
thanks had only been moved and seconded,
and Ihtt at the conclusion Mr. Davie forgot
to put the vote to the meeting, whereas the
vote was moved, seconded and carried in the
usual way, unanimously too, before Mr.
Keith rose to speak.
THE LAND POLICY OF THE GOV
ERNMBNT.
We recommend to the special attention
of our readers that portion of the Premier's
addre.-s at the Opera Hous.) on Satutday
uight which dealt with the laud policy of
the Government. Tnis patt of his speech
was publieh'id in our isBue of yesterday, It
will repay a second perusal antl careful consideration. The Premier says it is th i purpose of the Governmeut to grant financial
aid lo settlers acquiring small holdings.
This they could not do till the finances of
the country had first heen placed in a sound
condition. This having been happily accomplished, and the credit of this province
now standing so high in the Loudon money
market, makes it possible for the (loveru-
ment to borrow the money needed at, u low
rate of interest. The Government therefore,
as part of their policy, proposu shortly lo
adopt a scheme whereby parties taking up
land, and expending a certain amount of
money in improving it, oan get an advance
from the (luvernmeut at a reasonable rate
of interest, extended over a period of years,
by giving their property as security for it.
This is an announcement of the very greatest importance, and the policy, if properly
carried out, as we believe it will be if the
present Government be maintained in office,
will be a means leading to the
speedy settlement of the waste lands
of the province by a thriving agricultural
population. This ia a thing very much
needed in British Columbia. Not only at
present a sufficient quantity of agricultural
produce is not raiBed in the province to supply the wants of its people, but the trade of
its merchants is limited for want of thriving
and numerous agricultural communities adjacent to its citieB and towns. There is plenty
of unoccupied land adjacent, much of it good
land; what ia wanted is to bring settlers upon it. Some of this land is in the hands of
the Government; Borne in those of private
persons, who hold large blocks for the
purpose of speculation; some has been
granted to railway companies. The Premier announces it as the policy of his Government to promote the settlement of such
lands by actual cultivators, and as far  as
possible to induce aud encourage railway,
companies aud private capitalists holding
blocks for specu'atiou to divide up their
pioperiy into lo's of convenient size and Bell
the same to settlers on favorable termB.
The railway companies may be induced to
sell cheap by the consideration that by
locating settlers along their lines, they will
be creating traffic for their roads, now
almost idle in some cases, and
in no position to pay dividends on
the capital invested iu them. Privateowners
of large blocks, which they simply hold hut
do not cultivate, may be iuduced to sell by
sotaxingtheir unocupted lauds thatitwill not
piy to continue to hold them. This is the
policy which the Government means to
adopt. It will throw open the public lands
to actual settlers only, in fact has done bo
already; it will do what it can to induce
railway companies to sell their lauda to
settlers on favorable terms; and private
speculators will have their waste lands so
taxed that they will find it more profitable
to dispose of them lo settlers ou f.dr terms
than to continue to hold them. At the
same time good faith will be maintained, both
with railway companies and capitalists who
have got possession of lands. Anything
like a policy of confiscation will be avoided,
and the agreements made by former governments will be respected. When to ihis it is
added that the Governmeut will shortly be
prepared to grant financial aid to settlers at
a low rate of interest, on security of their
property already improved, aud to be further improved with the money advanced by
the Government, surely we are jus*, ified in pronouncing the policy of ihe G ivomtnent one
deserving of general support, and in anticipating for British Columbia under the
auspices of the Davie ahniuistalion an era
of rapid progress, such as has not before
been witnessed.

IS   YOUR   LIFE   INSURED?
A POLICY OF LIFE ASSURANCE is the Cheapest and Safest mode of making a certain provision for one's
family. It is a strange anomaly that men should be careful to insure their houses, their furniture, their ships, their merchandise, and yet neglect to insure their lives���surely the most important of all to their families, and tar more subject to loss.
The  Great  West  Life  Assurance  Company  offers an exceptionally  favorable Policy, at low
rates, the security being proportionately as good as the older companies.

A   BRILLIANT   GATHERING.
The Masonic Ball in tlie Opera House-
Revelry by Night- The Masonic Fra.
tornity to Be Congratulated.
The Masonic fraternity of Nauaimo royally honored the eve of St. Johu and their
invited guests at their annual ball held iu
the Optra House last evening.
Tlie giand march, led  by  Muraus Wolfe,
of P.M. P.6.M.,and Mrs.   Williams took
place at 9 o'clock.    The lloor of  the auditorium seen from the stage, which wiih tasteful arrangement of   tlowcrs,   decorations,
easy chairs aud lounges had   beeu oouverted
into an inviting rendezvous for buch as were
not dancing, presented a piotureeque array
of handsome men, bearing   proudly  the  in-
signa of their mystic brotherhood, und fair
women, their  partners  in   the  dances  the
most   gn.o ous   and   fairest   of   Nanaimo's
daughters.    The glowing lights played hide
and seek with  the folds   aud  draperies of
buntiug and silken hangings, heightened the
transparent   color   of    Japanese   lanterns,
crowned fair heads with a sheen of reflected
glory, lent additional grace to fair faces and
white shoulders, setting off their rich dress
ing of 11 ishiug jewels  and  shimmering silks
and satins; aud  were   scarcely  less  bright
than the glances of   pleasure and absolute
joy in life that  greeted   a   favored partner
from the eyes of ihe fair one on his arm. To
and fro, in  and  out, in  graceful t rder and
sequence, swayed   the brilliant array of fair
faces, manly furms, flashing jewels and rich
dresses, iu  waltz, quadrille, stately lancers,
polka, jersey, and all other variations of exhilarating motion known to   devotees of the
dance; while high over all rose the   notes of
the music, in merry cadence   measuring the
time for the flying feet Mat swept so  defily
the polished   floor,  and  mingling  with the
music's notes were   heard   merry   words of
greeting and good will, anon broken by   the
pealing laugh and beauty enhancing smile of
some fair dancer.    Fast flew the  hours, and
all too soon the   miduight   hour   came and
passed, and yet again the hours of the new
day, passmg quickly,   as   do   all   things of
pleasure, until the   dance   was   ended, and
tired votaries of the mazy whirl sought their
domes, all pronouncing the ball the best and
most enjoyable that Nanaimo had ever seen.
It would he almost impossible to describe
the multitude of handsome   toilets   donned
by the ladies prtsent   to   do   honor   to the
occasion.    Perhaps '���'������ m0���t  (striking gown
iu tho   WiOttt   Was   u   handsome   pink silk,
heavily embroidered wit h pearls,  and   with
panels of green   brocade.    White^ however,
was the predominating color, several   of the
married ladies wearing their wedding gowns,
which were very effective.    One in  particular consisted of a plain while silk skirt with
long train; the corsage being   heavily trimmed with white lace,  and   having   the now
fashionable  large   sleeves.    Another pretty
gown was of while poplin,  trimmed   on the
bottom with true lovers' knots aud a corded
silk bodice trimmed with   lace   and  jewels.
There were   many   pretty   colored   gowns,
among which was oue of emerald   green silk
edged with white satin, and another of   eau
de Nile pongee silk in the skirt, with a corsage of black velvet trimmed with lace.
Ihe decorations of the hall were very
pretty and tasteful, flags being diaped over
the gallery rails, and over head, while from
side to side were hung stiiugs of Japamse
lanterns, the bright color of which gave a
very pretty effect. Here and there were
many tastefully arranged little uooks, for
those who liked to ait and look ou.
The refreshments supplied by the Windsor
house management all the evening were of a
very fine description, and were daintily prepared aud se* ved.
There were twenty dances ou the programme and four extras. Following is a list
of the ladies and gentlemen piesent of
whom many came from Victoria and Vancouver, beside outlying parts of the districts: Ladies���Mrs. Wolfe, Mrs. Bell,

the success attending their efforts.

WHY A OOLITARY WAYSIDE GRAVE K
MARKED  "PHANTOM."

The tourist who visits the region of
Lower Plaza, N. M., will soe, among
other things, ns ho drives along the trail
from tho railroad a grave with a thick
headboard on which ia painted the oue
word, "Phantom."
"It's only a dog's grave," the guide
will explain, "but I reckon he'd more
sense than somo men."
Phantom was the jiroporty of Bernard
Wiener, a cowboy living m*ar the Datil
mountains sumo years ago, but he woe
buried near the homo of Daniel Chapman, whose wife was the sister of 'Wis-
tii'i*. Mrs. Chapman, when her brother
first got tho dot?, had a hearty dislik ��� for
it. It was a big mongrel, with hound
blood predominating, and, like all mongrel hounds, it had an enormous appetite that was never so well satisfied as
with food stolen from somebody's kituhen,
For many offenses of this kind Mrs.
Chapman bad good reason to complain,

than one occasion but for two reasons,

over from her brother's house a mile
away as if for the expri ss purpose of having a romp with the little tot of 3.
However, thedog's manner kept growing worse, and one day when she saw it
come sneaking around the corral she
started for the gun, but stopped half way
I tecause she was reminded by the sight of
the dog that the little one had not been

without tne gun and called aloudi
"Baby!   Baby!"
Then sho listened and grew faint, for
she heard no reply, and fainter still
when sbe remembered that her husband
had told Iter of Seeing ft paiiilier's
trucks down in the hollow near by.
To" think of this was to send her flying
toward tho hollow, but no baby or
trace of it was to bo found, although

Then she came running back to the
bouse, ringing her hands ami calling
"Baby" distractedly. Sho found the
dog standing right beside tho door, but
she would not have noticed him, she
was so near wild about the baby, only
for the fact that ho stood looking intently at her instead of taking to his
heels with his tail between his legs, as
he always done when she came toward
him.
Even as it was she paid little attention
to the dog, but ran hither and yon about
the house and corral and horse shed,
crying and calling tho child, until at
ia t she saw tho it tg come square before
her, and after a grave look into hor face
-tart running aroun 1 the house with his
nose to the ground. She remembered
afterward that ho circled arouud the
house two or three times and then disappeared, but by that time her fears had
so overcome her that sho fell headlong
tin th*' floor in a faint, and there she lay
n*-'   dy knows how long.
Whi tt sho cam j to her senses, the dog
was licking her face, and at once began
to caper about and bark in extraordinary
fashion when she opened her eyes and
sat up. Then he ran out the door ami
stopped and looked back, and directly
came back and grabbed tlie skirt of her
dress, which he pulled so hard that he
i >re it. The* she picked up a club and
drove tho dog out the house, and when
hor burst of anger was over fainted
na t;:i at tho thought of the lost baby.
When she revived this time, she was too
weak to get up, but she saw that tho dog
was still acting in the same unusual
fashion she had noticed before. A little
hil *r the sound of horse's hoofs gladdened her ears, and with a last effort she
got up, staggered out the door, saw her
husband as he jumped from his horse.
and, gasping ont the words that "Baby
is lost," fainted for the third time.
Chapman carried the woman to the
bed, took one look around the room in
order to assure himself that ho had
tightly understood what she had said,
and then grabbing the Winchester ��aid
to the dog:
"Hi, Phantom! whore's Baby?*
"Wow!" replied tho dog, ami started
away on a lope that kept Dan humping
hhu self to equal, Tlie trail :*' {ssh :ed
about l\*r nearly half a mile. til. .-.te ��� > d
n brok n lava bed and ran oil' down a
draw to the creek valley, h.id any other
dog than Phantom beeu on tlie Lr.iil Dan
would have not b 'iieved the child  lid
have gone that way. but he banked ou
Phantom and kept trotting along until
al last a thicket was reached just two
miles and a half from homo. Into tho
thicket the dog plunged hy what was
really a Bortof tunnel through the brush,
and Chapman had to get down on his
hands and knees to follow. Two rods in
ii ��� came to an opening, and there on the
dry sod lay the baby fast asleep. It was
apparently in tho den of tome wild animal.
As Dan picked up the child the growl
of the dog made him look around.
Phantom was standing over the dead
hotly of a recently killed coyote.
Phantom died of old age last spring,
and was buried with many tears near
the public highway, where all who pass
can see it. It was only a dog that was
buried there; but, then, as the cowboys
say, "I reckon he'd more sense than
tome men."���Cor. New York Sun,
Burial within city limits was in heatn-

was Iod in and placed in the dock between two constables.
These spoke to tlie arrest ot the accused on the disposition of one Dorothy
Dundas.
"Faix, and who may Dorothy Dundas
be?" inquired the prisoner goodhuin-
ouredly.
"Have you any witnesses who can
Identify this man?" asked the magistrate.
As Dorothy was about to step into the
box, Laura put her siBter aside and faced
the magistrate. In a few words Laura
told tlio court who she was, and the
story of her arrest for the murder of
Ralph Kestrel, and of her unexpected
discharge, the constable who had fetched Dorothy testifying to its truth. In
reply to the formal demand whether he
wished to ask auy questions, Donovan
shook his head.
Then came Dorothy's turn.
"BegoiTa!" muttered the prisoner as
���he stepped into the box; "it's two of
'em she is, entirely;" and the magistrate's
keen eye detected his changing color and
confused maimer during Dorothy's circumstantial account of the events of the
night of the murder.
Then Donovan was asked if he had
anything to object to the police's request
for a remand.
"Faith, uo,"said he; "I reserve my
defence. It's a beautiful alabi I can
prove, be jabers! Constable, will ye
send to Miss .Muriel O'Connor?" and he
gave her address.
"It's not much good that will do you,"
returned the constable as he made an
entry of tho address in his notebook.
"What d'ye mane?" asked the prisoner quickly.
The officer turned to the magistrate.
"This Miss Muriel O'Connor, vour
worship," he said, "is either dead or
dying."
A ghastly change came over the face
���f Donovan.
"Dead or dying?" repeated tbe magistrate.    "From what cause?"
"Ay, from what cause?" repeated
Donovan, whose features twitched and
worked with the high excitement under
Which he was labouring,
"There wns an explosion," said the
constable slowly, "at the house named by
the prisoner, last evening, supposed to
be of au infernal machine containing
dynamite. Tin* lady. Miss Muriel O'Connor, was picked up insensible and taken
to the hospital."
"What!'' shrieked Donovan. "He
lies! he lies! I gave the machine to him,
of Captain Dundas beamed like a new
risen sun on all around.
For some time Muriel's new-found
happiness was disturbed by the dread
lesl the society of which she had formerly been a member should seek to wreni:
their vengeance on her much-loved husband. Donovan had "died game," refusing to speak a work.
But Cecil Chester laughed at Muriel's
fears, knowing that for their own
safety's sake "the brotherhood" would
be chary of interfering with people who
knew so much about them as ri: i
"Muriel O'Connor" nnd the late private
secretary to the Chief Secretary for lie-
land.
CALLING ARAMINTA BACK.
By ltD�� ii. Connolly,
THE CONFESSION. ���"HELIES! HE LIES!"
not to her!    I saw him  taking it to the
Parliament House before I left."
"You gave it?" queried the magistrate.
"Yes, I gave it! I gave it! D'ye hear?
And I don't care who knows, or what
comes of it, if I've killed her!"
A terrible apprehension flitted across
Lord Willmore's mind as he listened,
for, although warned that all he snid
would be taken as evidence agaiusthim,
Donovan broke out into maledictions
npon Cecil Chester, who had 1 een his
rival in the love of the woman whom ho
now accused himself of having* killed���
Cecil Chester, whom he would have destroyed as pitilessly aa he struck down
Ralph Kestrel. Yes, he admit ted all.
Bis wild grief at the supposed destruction of the woman he had vainly adored
spent itself in fury at the miscarriage of
his diabolical vengeance, and he boasted
exultantly of the occasion on which his
hate had "borne its bloody fruit.
Willmore began an eager question to
the constable, but was cut short by the
usher Calling  for silence  in  the court;'
the magistrate,  remarking curtly that
he remanded the prisoner for a week, j
intimated that he was waiting to hearj
the next case.
Outside the court, Willmore and Laura
learned that a gentleman was with
Muriel at the time of the explosion. "Ho j
was injured, but not nearly so serioub.y J
as the lady," explained the constable.
"She seemed to have tried to protect
hiin, and got worse hurt herself in consequence. He gave no name, and they
were then taken to the same hospital."
But the constable was wrong. Muriel
O'Connor was neither deadlier dying;
for some time she lay in a very critical
condition, and scarcely any hope was entertained of her recovery. At length her
splendid constitution triumphed, and,
surrounded by all the helpful influences
of love and friendship, she was nursed
back to life. Her sorrow at the injustice
she had done to Laura was very keen.
but tbe latter told her to show her penitence by getting well ns quickly as possible; advice which Muriel followed to
such good effect that on a brilliant morning in October tho bells of St. Snlpice
rang out a wedding peal which served
for both Muriel and Laura. Chester had
quickly recovered from his injuries, and
he and Willmore had stipulated with the
girls to make a "double event" of it.
When the officiating clergyman, an
old college chum of the two men. asked
ooncerniug Laura, "Who giveth this
woman?" a bluff and hearty voioe de-
olared:
"I do, and no son of the sea ever gave
a better;" and the broad and genial faoe
"The Lord gave, and the Lord taketh
away; Blessed be the name of the Lord."
The parson's unctuous glibness, in utterance of the pious platitude, seemed to
.ur. Blodgett���chief mourner���animated
by personal approval of the Lor I'd final
action in the premises. Would there
have beeu such H tinge of satisfaction in
his resignation if the dead woman had
been his own wife? Was it quite cer-
; .in that the Lord had concerned him-
s If at nil about either the giving or the
taking of Mrs. Araminta Blodgett!
"Forasmuch as it hath pi *.;.��� .**1 Almighty
God," etc., etc., went on the flow of formal blandiloqneuce, Why had it pleased
him*? Wondered John B *>.!..:ott. What
interest could he have had in the matter?
It certainly had not plowed Arnmitita,
who was seriously misunderstood if her
off-expressed desire to "eater into the
heavenly rest" had been taken in earnest.
And so fur from pleading her husband,
i. '.::ul r.tr. h annoyed him���to state the
cise mildly. Araminta had some "try-
i ig ways," doubtless, but probably not
more than other women have, and John,
i:: thirty years of married life, had got
used to tliein.
The poor old widower, riding by
himself in the slow-moving carriage behind thehearse, felt very sad and lonely.
* hough by no means an imaginative
tenn, the fancy grew upon him that his
iiro was a cable, a great strand of which
i:-*.*l parted when Araminta died, weak-
.ridng whit was left. At the receiving
Vi.ult he looked on silently, while tue at-
! *:ulants Bled Araniiir-i away in n stone
;. ;{eon-hoie ui.-i slid .. . heavy ir**.. door
.'> place with a bang. He made no
.- icctaculnr display or grief, for his
.i.mre was not demonstrative, and at
.������ y fiv* one does notcare enough about
'..*.*,it people think to prompt the siuiu-
; tiion of emotion,
But when he got back into his carriage again, all alone, as he preferred to
be, his eyes were moist and he thought
very gravely upon what had happoued
to Araminr*: what was going to happen
���*i him in the few years he had yet lo go,
��� ompanionless, down the hill of life; and
how much better it would have been if
would have been if they could have finished the course together. Decidedly,
ae reflected, the Lord's way of pleasing
.imseif occasioned great inconvenience
io others. Mr. Blodgett meant no irreverence in so thinking, he had merely���
ihrough much hearing of prayers and
sermons���got into a habit of almost social familiarity with God's personality.
The way was long, aud, though the
;i ;-e foiled briskly on the return from
the cemetery, the short winter day had
ended by the time the widower had
.*��� ached his home. He sighed, as he let
umself in with his latch key. at the
nuinously suggestive darkness of tin
hallway yawning before him. It looks .
like an enlargement of the pigeon-hole
in which thev had deposited Araminta.
..ever before had he found it uulighted,
; -lie alwii;. s saw to that.   He turned into
le dark parlor and barked one of his
Mius upon something thai stool directly
. i hia way, which,  upon examination,
'���nved tn be one of the trestles used to
npport Aramiuta's coffin.    It belonged
,i tne house, so had not been carried oil'
ivy the  undertaker,   and   nobody   had
tuought in removing it when its temporary sen ice here was ended.   The sudden
realization   of   what it was gave Mr.
Blodgett quite a shock, lor it brought
ividly  back  to  his  mental vision her
luce,   cob!  and  whi.u u:.d  still, in the
ilken interior of tlie costly casket, as ho
 I last s* ��� :i it, jus; .it . pot.
He shumierud aud imagined that he
heard a faint sigh so:* ewlvre near him.
iMing his breath a..*i listening so in-
.���,,.,- i.nt he thou, in he cool. hear
, i heart beat, he sto id perl* ctly still
, v.'i ly strove to piurcu th. . . ense
. .ikn *8S with his Bigv.t. A little thrill
I,, chilliness seemed to run over his skin,
ii id for a moment he had an i;.., ; ��� ision
. .it there was near him some one he was
much more likely to see then than
he would be if he had a light, The
person���or whatever it was���seemed
to be at hia elbow, just behind his
.'-boulder, and he felt an almost irresistible impulse to, i.i-stead of locking
around, jump to the door and make his
, *.;i,*. Then he pulled his scattered
i.icnliies together with the reflection:
"Nonsense! I didn't imagine there
w is enough superstition in mo to make
me even think of such a thing! And,
i ,*en if it should be Araminta, why
should I be afraid of her now���when
one is past talking?"
Quite himself again, he turned on his
heel, walked deliberately out to the hall
and went on to the dining-room, where
ho found warmth, light, comfort, and
company, Miss Artemisia Hudson, an
elderly spinster, and Mrs. Ellica Mer-
,, in, widow���"friends of the corpse" as
they had styled themselves when assuming authority -had temporarily

on Mountuius by Mr. Hunter was listened
to by a very appreciative audience. Mr.
Huuter explained the geological formation
of mountains by diagrams and referred to
tbe immense influence exercised by the
presence of mountains on the destinies of
different human races which would but for
their mountain retreats have long Bince
ceased to exist. He pointed * ut the similitude of mountains to men in certain respects
or iu the way that they were regarded, and
also referred to the connection between
mountains and rivers and the climatic influences exercised by them. The lecture
was au exceedingly interesting one and the
subject was handled with masterly skill by
Mr. Hunter, who has evidently made a
study of and gone thoroughly into the
subject.
Phrenology  and Physiognomy.
Over 175 persons were in the Y, M. C. A.
hall laBt night to hear Mrs. Ellis, the first
lady phrenologist that haB ever visited
Nanaimo, discourse on this interesting subject. The audience was intensely interested
during the whole lecture. Mrs. Ellis examined several of the audience, displaying a
wonderful knowledge of their characteristics
and best capabilities Mrs. Ellis combines
phrenology and physiognon y in her study
of subjects, and says that these are the ouly
means by which to arrive al a correct reading of a person's capabilities. Thursday
