PARIS, Dec. 26.���The Associated Press
has obtained a copy of a violent manifesto
whicli the French anarchists of London have
secretly prepared for distribution in Paris.
The manifesto is headed, "The Dynamitards
to the Panama Crew."    The tniuifes'.o says:
"This first dynamite explosion will not he
the last for you wretches. Since 1871, when
you converted Paris * into a c. It unci house
and massacred 35,000 proletarians the republic has been turned into a deu of thieves,
directed successively by scoundrel Thiers,
brute McMahon, Ihief Grevy and maninkin
Carnot, while the poor hounds below are
condemned to *�� hite Blavery or to die of
starvation in the s rects. Jjo you think
such a slate of things can endure?
No, the revolution will ; devour you
whom   you    outlawed     will    come
We
to rescue the starving and duped
poor, who caunot wait patiently like the
labor deputies, so-called because they do no
work. These idiotic and renegade deputies
declared recently that you would have them
shot like rabbits, but they decline to be
blown up with you. Do not hold the miserable socialists responsible for dynamite.
They ouly want to enrich themselves, like
you."
After further denunciation of socialists
the manifesto proceeds to describe the
bourgeois class, saying:    "They  are   woise

All the above are special importations, and are marked at such ridiculous low prices ' mantling ihe  de-aih penalty  for   Vaillant,

The only Pure Cream of Tartar Powder.��� No Ammonia; No Alum,
Used in Millions of Homes���40 Years the Standard
Caprivi Tirod of office*.
BERLIN, Dec. 26.���Since the commercial
treaties with Roumania, Spain and Servia
were passed, Chancellor vou Caprivi has
professed to bo tired of his olliee aud to be
willing to resign immediately after the passing of the treaty with Russia. The statement that he has told the Emperor of his
desire to retire is heard daily, not only in
high official circles, but by the public at
large; it is taken with a grain of salt. The
Conservative agitation against the chancellor is more energetic than ever. His old
Prussian associates are especially bitter, but
no influences on any side have broken the
emperor's determination to ad here to his foremost official. Count Hot do Eulenberg,
Prussian premier, having found his intrigues
thwarted by the emperor's conlidence or
pit jmiice, has gone over to the chancellor's
side completely iu the last few days, and
the personal friction between the two statesmen has ceased; hence Kulenberg's circular
ordering high Prussian officials, whom he
tacilly permitted during the last days of
the Landtag elections to oppose the Government, to stop their obstructive tactics. It
is late iu the day for Eulenbers* to issue the
ordor. The supreme siguigcance of the circular lies mainly in the fact that it recognizes the permanence of the chancellor's
position which he sought to undermine.
The winter manoeuvres in Hradenburg will
be postponed until hard frosts have set in.
The emperor wishes to see a seiies of dis
plays by soldiers on skates, ice-shoes, iceboats, sleds drawn by horses, and the like,
all to reach a climax iu a grand winter
battle.
Thu polios iu Prague have arrested a
youug Czech workingman, suspected of murdering police agent Urva, who was found
dead in his rooms yesterday, with a dagger
in his breast. Marks on his throat showed
that he. bad been strangled as well as stabbed. His body lay beanie the ChiiBtnies
tree, which he wasdeooratiog wheu he was
att'icked. Urva was ilenounccd by the
young Czechs during the* recent donates in
the Reiobaralh, anil had frequently express
cd fcius that he would lie assassinat
often spoke of U,e man under anest as a for
more imrade, whowasready at any time to run
a dagger into his heart. This man was seen
near Urva's door at aboui the titnu wheu
the crime must, have beeu committed. Later
ho went to Urva's mother and told her that
he heaiet her son was dead. The assassination has excited all Bohemia. It will cause
the severest enforcement of the exceptional
repressive lneasuics recently approveel by
the Reichstag.
The Berlin correspondent of the Indt pi ml-
en** />'*/:/* says Ihat tht* construction of a
military camp at Mulmeily ou the Belgian
frou:ler is ihe fiis* step towards the general
transfer of the army manoeuvres from the
interior lo the frontier. The object of this
change is to avoid the damage done to-the
crops by the concentration of troops in the
most fruitful districts in ths German territory. Similar foitilicalions will be construct! d probably near the boundary between Bohemia and Saxony and on the
frontiers of Pomeranig and Posen, This explanation is re-girded as a subterfuge.
Fiance is expected to begin fortifying her |
north-eastern frontier to counterbalance the
effect of Germany's action at Malniedy.
f * ff-.irs prevent! d G��r-
many fiom bcctm.ng a aUong centralized
slate. Heir Miguel ignored the fact that
the govutnuieiii owed Hs leeuit successes to
lite ouancc manipulation of the small parliamentary fuctinns. These successes woultl
have been impossible had the large compact
groups still existed.
"Sound imperial finance," Dr. Miguel
continued, "could not be obtained without
fiscal reforms. The government can have
no object oilier than the country's good, yet
the opposition treat the ministers as if they
were enemies of ths empire."
"The taxation of tobacco is opposed," it
was remarked, "as if tobacco were a necessity of life. The lax doubtless would lead
to some dislocation of the tobacco industry ;
but if 10,000 tobacco woikers should be
thrown out of employment, what then?"
"Moat of them," it was replied, "would
find work in other industriest while the
country generally would experience no dis-
comfort.    The trea&uiy  would i.c iciioveJ."
Dr. Migud annulled that the wine tax
proposals would be modified, but all the
cont.'inplated altir.-tions of ins plans, he
declared, would net touch the principle.
The premiums on exports of sugar would be
left iutact, he said. The government fully
recognized the depression in the agricultural
districts. When the Prussian Landtag
shoultl open a, measure would be introduced
for the creation of agricultural chambers, in
which the interest of the great land owners
and small farmers would be represented
t (jually. The government would assist the
chambers in agrarian reforms and in obtaining agricultural credit.
Dr. Miguel said he was convinced that the
grain powers exaggerated tbe effects which
the treaty with Russia would have upon the
price of cereals. Anyhow it was impossible
to prevent Russian grain from entering Germany by side way*,. Besieles having concluded treaties wtlh the Powers, Germany
onuld hardly decline to conclude one with
Russia. Uneloubtedly the Russian mouetary
system presented a grave objection. The
agitation on gold encouraged exportation
and rendeicd customs duties illusionary, but
Germany had the same disadvantage in
dealing with Austria, Hungary and Italy.
It was always dangerous to conclude corn-
merciil treaties with countries having unstable currency systen*s. If no understanding should be leached with Russia, who
could predict what might happen in Russian
negotiations wiih oilier countries?
Finally, Dr. Migu* 1 thought the Reichstag, however bittetly prejudiced ag-.iust
the new tax proposals, would approve the
scheme in bulk as there was no alternative
plan to meet the increased expenditure.
The Report Contradicted.
LONDON, Dec. 26.���A Paris despatch to
the Times says : Le Temps contradicts a
report iu the Indepi ��</��� nee Ii' Igt that France
meditates fixing a camp at Given on the Belgian frontier. Lt Temps, in discussing the
probabilities of a German camp at Mai-
meody, says that if created it will then be
time to consider France's means for defence
in the direction of Ardennes anil Hainault.
M. Lockr: y, iu L'Eclair, makes serious indictments against the French navy and coast
defences of France. He says it is all but
undefended from Dunkiik to Cherbourg,and
16,000,000 francs will be required to place
Cherbourg in a state of defence, and adds
that the same statement holds good in the
case of Cersiea. Tho British could easily
get a footing at either place.
Trouble in Madagascar.
Paris, Dec. 26. ��� Further news from
Madagascar Bays that the Hovas are arming
with much spirit, and aie forcing the peasants to quit the rice fields. The Rahavalos
have attacked the French outposts at Buoni.
Some 250 Rahavalos besieged Mandraty on

A SUCCESSFUL MEETING.
Coatinuation of Premier Davie's Address
in the Opera House.
[Continued from Sunday's issue I
Having placed the tiuances of the country
in a sound condition the Government is now
in a position to offer aid to settlors in acquiring small holdings. This eould not be done
before for want of money and might uot lie
put in operation during the present, fiscal
j ear but there is no reatou why the Government si ould not adopt a scheme whereby
parties taking up land and expending ������
certain amount of money in improving it
could get an ailvance from the Government
at a reasonable rate of interest extended
over a period of years by giving their properly as security for it.
The Chilcotiln country to the west of  the
with the hope of putting enough
land in sondition for cultivation ou which to
make a living for himBelf and family. In
BOmo eounries wi ere similar difficulties had
to be contended with the goverumtnts had
seen fit to advance to bona fide settlers
Krauts of money to opeu up lauds on the
terms he bad just staled and while it is not
possible lo adopt such a scheme iu British
Columbia just now, iu the near future he
heiped to see Buch a policy inaugurated in
this province.
At  present  the  land  between   here  and
Victoria along the line of railway is   owned
by the railway  company,   and   comprises a
large amount of good land which is now held
at three dollars au acre.  He hoped that in a
short time the Government would be able to
make a   reasonable   arrangement   with the
company for the settlement  of  these lands.
Tnis could uot be doue   now, but   owing to
so many now valuable tracts of Government
lands coming into the market for settlement
ii might be possible to do so in a short time.
When the compiny sees ihat there is plenty
of land  to be had for settlement   they will
be willing to make   a   reasonable   arrangement, with the Govcrument which would result in the speedy settlement of the   railway
lands.    It does   not   pay   the   company to
bold these lands   locked   up   as   mcy   are.
The     road,    having     cost     so    much    to
build,      it       is       uot     paying.        They
were losing money, too, by the country along
the road   not  being   opened   up   aud   wili
therefore soon be glad lo   throw   the   lands
opeu for settlement on the most reasonable
arrangement.    If the Government finds they
can make a reasonable arrangement with the
company they will not be blind   to   its  importance and will make an effort lo   do  so.
Other large grants of laud now held by large
corporations   obtaiued    many    years    ago
might also in this way be  thrown  open  for
settlement.    The   object   of    the    present
Government has been to place a high lax on
all such land not previously exempt and  re-
e nfly for instance in the   neighborhood of
Victoria lands Ihat had been formerly taxed
at .$50 an acre were now taxed   as   high   as
��750 an acre.    This was being doue to force
parties holding valuable tracts in  an  unimproved state to put them in a state  of   cultivation or sell to someone else who would.
It   has   been the policy of his  Government
to   put   a   high   tax   on   all   wild   lands.
He did not think   that   this   ���'<   went far
enough now, not that it should be increased
because ii is high enough as at   present, but
the In uble is if a inau owns a large quantity
of laud and wants to escape  the   wild   land
tax he goes to work and improves it, spends
a few hundred dollars upon it iu   building a
fence or something of   that   kind   and then
goes i.way to   England   or   somewhere else
and waits until the  improvements   on   surrounding laud increase its   v.elue   when   he
sells his land   nut,   at   a   large  profit.    He
thought an imp-ovement on this tax   would
be to compel those who do not   actually use
the land, that is absentee   landlords, to pay
the higher tax until   they   have   to let the
laud go.    This is the   legislation   which he
thought with justice might be resorted to in
futuie.    In regard   to   the   Esquimalt and
Nanaimo   railway   property   he wanted  it
understood that under their grant tney were
exempt from taxation on the   lands granted
to them.    This was granted to the company
by a previous Government  aud  the present
Government must in   justice   recognize  the
obligations of   their   predecessors.    It  waB
agreed that the company  should   have that
land free of   taxea   until   they   sold it, and
while they might encourage them  to sell it,
the preseut Government cannot   break faith
with them.    It has   been   proposed   to tax
theso lands, but onci the Government showB
it is goiug to cancel existing obligations and
break faith with ihose it has made  bargains
wiih, immediately its   credit   is   not worth
that (snapping his fingers).    Su that   whatever is done, be said, bis Government would
still   puisu��,   and   intended   to  puisue,  a
just   method    of    taxiug    lhe    land   and
they   should   never    do    auy thing   which
would impair existing obligations.     For the
reasons he hail shown, he suid, the co.npany
were bound to get rid of   these lands   when
they can, and   he   hoped   that   by-aud-bye
when the   Government   found   itself   iu  a
position to bring in a   measure for the   purpose of aiding the settlement of small   holdings, as for his part he iutended to aid, there
will be a fair chance of their   being able   to
make some arrangemeut for the belter settlement of the lands between here and Victoria.
Not that those lands were not being settled,
because they are being settled and he knew,
he said, that the company ate anxious to sell
anil he wanted to encoutage them to procure
the settlement of those lands to a greater extent than at the present time.
Continuing, Mr. Davie said, he supposed
they would expect him to say something
about what is known as the Canada Western project, that is the pn jeot of building a
railroad connecting with the E. & N. and
; running up to Seymour * arrows, cussing
there to the mainland and hoooming pirt of
' a great transcontinental line. The Govern-
: ment, he said, had offered a large subsidy in
land tn the promoters of such a line aud a
free' deal has been said about the project,
hut it does not assume at the present time
s very encouraging aspect. A syndicate has
Icon floa'ed but nothing definite has been
done. Whether tho entire scheme will be
brought into shape, a portion of it most
1 certaiuly ought to be brought to a successful
I issue speedily, and will be if within the power of the Government to
bring it about. He said he refened
to that part of it nor h of Nanaimo to Seymour Narrows. It settled to him that Dr.
Hemcken's views on ihis su'ject v ire right
and ihat it would open up the country and
the oad ��� ugh' lobe encouraged. Ho hoptd
they would before long be i-ble to place
something tangible before the House with
the view of the extension of this road, and
it will bo a part e.f that scheme to open up
all the land in the northern portion of the
; island. That railway is bound to come in-
i course of time, no matter whatgovernment you

with He said, for the last ten years he h til
supported the government which had been
in power and which he deemed had wmked
in the best interests of the conatry, and the
matters which he had brought into existence
have had the consideration and
were ths policy of the previous Government.
By the turn affairs have taken the Government which uow exists his opportunities in
its power which no previous government
ever had. After informing them to Borne
extent of the policy which the present Government intended to pursue in the future,
he said, it would be for them to say in a few
months whether they wished to make a
change of Government or not. That would
be a matter entirely for them. If they
thought the* busiuess of the country could be
carried on better by other people, it will he
in their own bauds to say. While having
no Intention of relinquishing the reius of
government unless tbe people desired it, to
him personally to be in politics was a matter
of loss financially, as those who have known
him know thae he had a lucrative practice
which he has been compelled to relinquish;
in fact he would be better off from a point
of personal profit if he were relegated to
stay at home. He had shown them he was
not blind to the vast interests of this country
and the great responsibility which rested
upon him. Everything he had made in his
practice he had wisely or unwisely invested
in this Province and had no deBire but for
the welfare of the Province which meant
also his own individual success. He had
every confidence in his own and his colleague's methods and he hoped to be able lo
carry them out; whether he was or not
depended on the will of the people.
He had shown them that the people
abroad had confidence in his Government.
If they had not that c mfidence they would
not have lent the Governmeut their money
and treated them and treated with them on
as good a basis as with the most favored
countries. Iu the great financial circles, if
they have not confidence in us they would
not have placed the financial position of thiB
Province second amongst the colonial securities of the world. Those who have mouey
invested are here most deeply interested in
our progress and have confidence in this
Government. The question then remains,
are the electors of the same opinion or are
they nol? Continuing Mr. Davie said
Now gentlemen, I thiuk that is all I have to
say; the issue will be before you before very
long. I hope to have an opportunity to ad-
dresB you again and to go into these subjects
more thoroughly than I am at the preseut
moment prepared to do I thank you very
sincerely for the kind and patient manner
in which you have heard me and I look forward to an early opportunity of meeting
you again.   [Loud applause.]
Mr. Davie then moved a vote of thanks to
tho chairman which was carried unanimously. At this juncture Mr. Keith rose
and said that although the meeting had
been called to explaiu the policy of the
Government, he thought the present members of the House from this district might
have something to say on this subject.
[Cries of platform.]
Mr. Davie wished it understood that although the meeting had been called by him,
he was quite willing they should be heard
but he reserved to himself the privilege
of fifteen or twenty minutes to reply wheu
they had finished,
Mr. Keith on taking the  platform  stated
that he  was   surprised   at   hearing   that a
meeting had been  called   for   thiB   evening
>b he had asked   Mr.   Davie   yesterday   il
there was to be one and he   told   him,   no.
He said we had heard  a  great   deal   about
the policy of the Governmeut,   and he   was
sure it must   give   them   pleasure   to  hear
some of the opinions of   tha   Premier.    He
said, when he was elected to  represent this
city he   was   elected   on   the   independent
ticket and he had remaiued  independent as
far as laid in his power,   and   that was   the
stand he took to-day.      He would take   the
liberty of referring to some of the things the
Hon. Premier had spoken of.      Iu regard to
the redistribution bill the question we   were
told had been fought out on   the   mainland
and it was practically dead.      We were also
told that the reason  the   Government  had
not brought in a bill   as   promised   at   the
last session was because they   had   not   the
proper   information.    While   it   waB   conclusively proved in the House that they had
the proper information  aud the   Hon.   Mr.
Brown piores that they   hatl all   the   information iu then that they haveatthe present
time���he thought the Hon   Premier  wonld
bear   him   out   in   this���he    thought   the
question   of redistribution was one on which
the Government would   probably   bring   in
a bill at the next session  and   try to rush it
through.    That  he   believed would be   the
policy of the  Government at  the next session.    The next question he referred to was
about  the  former  government having borrowed $30,000  which  showed  how  hard it
was to get money at that   time; it was very
hard  fifteen   or   twenty   years   ago, much
more so than the present.    He  Baid  we expected   to   develop   something  within the
next fifteen or t verity y,.ars and he thought
we were growing   very  fairly.    It is proved
that we can borrow money at three and four
percent., and   that   shows  the  country  is
growing and will  continue   to grow.    But
there was  another thing  he  would  like to
refer to and that wus the graut to the E. k
N. R. Co.      Mr. Davie hid said  the terms
got were not so advantageous   as the former
government  had   offered.    He   knew that;
tut if one  government does  wrong  that is
no reason why  another   shoultl   perpetuate
that  wrong.    Since   the  grant   was   given
that company  we  find   that  time and time
again grants  have  been  given on precisely
the same terms, yet he says it would not be
done again, a statement  which   the speaker
wished   he   could    believe.      The   Canada
Western    Railway leceived  some   20,000,-
000 act es on  precisely  similar  terms.    He
said   he   found   the policy of  Mr. Davie'B
Government   was    the    policy   of    giving
away        and        encouraging      monopoly.
He considered   that   the   very  question of
giving away   20,000,000   aores   of land, exempt from taxation is a sufficient answer to
any proposition the present Government can
bring up that they would not   give   land at
the present time.    He sayB that the Government's aim ought to be  to* elevelop   the resources of the country, but has   the   aim of
his Government   been   to   develop  the  resources of the country?   He  did   not think
they had devoted themselves to the development of this country   at   all.    He   did not
find that they gave any special   facilities to
the people to take up land.    We   are  told,
he said, that the E. k N. R.  R.  sells   land
at 83 an acre, but the fact   was   they   Bold
some at $10, and lands they think  are valuable they don't sell at $3, but they are quite
willing to sell any lands they  do not think
are valuable.    Continuing he   Bpoke   of the
deep sea fishery   and   said   that   the Hon.
Premier tells us of the great benefit it would
be to the province. Tho Government propose
to give 500,000 acres of the coast   land, the
most valuable portion   of   the   province, *������
, to
this industry. That, he thought, may be
iiylog to lic.elup ttie i.sources uf tins pio-
vinco, but he filled to see it. He said the
Government waB giving this land away on
the coast of the island, and on Queen
Charlotte island for the development
of the province. Well, perhaps it was,
and then he tells us the remin < tie negotiations fell through was the British Government wanted to send out a class of inferior
croflers and fishermen and this Government
would uot have them. The reasons, Us Baid,
to his mind was now, autl as he had Btaietl
in the House, that the whole scheme was
impracticable, that it was nothing more nor
less than a wild cat scheme for speculative
purposes. He believed that he had given
charters to twenty or more railway, thai
these charters have gone through the House
only because large laud grants have beeu
given. These charters heve been peddled
over the country but uo one woulel buy
them; not oue out of twenty during the last
twenty years has been built. They thought
they would get enough laud to enable t hem
to sell out and make their few million
dollars. We were told, he said, that there
was lo be about ��1,500,01)0 capital. Anyone
knows there would not be justification for
that amount of capital to be sunk in it; we
have not the population here; we cannot afford lo send the fish east or south. We
could never have any market that would
justify such an expenditure as that, therefore it was simply an impracticable and
speculative scheme, no'hiug more and nothing less. He said that Mr. Davie went ou
to compliment us ou our ooal resources. We
have all that,but iu contradistinction to that
we find that the present Government has
merely treated Nanaimo as a suburb of Victoria siuce ever it was in existence. As the
Board of Trade very properly biought be
fore the Honorable Premier the other day,
we have uo facilities for law business
in connection with our Supreme Court.
We asked for a laud registry office and
we cannot get it; we asked for other things
but we have not got one of them. There is
something peculiar, he Baid, about these
things. When he went in to the House as an
independent member the Government was
very courteous. We went in free and unprejudiced, and we found it was plain
sailing for a few weeks until they found
they could do without us; then it waB
different. It is the duty of tho Legislature
to protect the lives of their miners and it
might be interesting to note what has been
done on some few points. List year New
Westminster got a grant of 575,000, or $15,-
000 a year for five years to construct a
biilge. There is something rather pecu iar
about that. The gentleman, he presumed,
who got that was Mr. Punch who was
elected an Independent, and for selling his
pledges and his honor and becoming a supporter of the present Government we find
that his district received a benefit to the
luue of ��75,000 and we find that this brid-e
was to be budt through or on land closely
adjoining property owned by him. We find
that Vancouver had another man of the
nme descripti'.n who thought his honor was
worth a $40,000 court house to support the
present. We find that Victoria has been
for a long time the Btronghold of the oppos
it ion aud the re idenoe of the Cabinet and
we find there are about fourteen or
seventeen members residing there and
in order that Victoria may be appreciated
we find they get $600,000 for the parliament
buildings. Now that is rather peculiar.
Nauaimo only got $15,000 for a gaol last
year. He supposed ihe Government came
to the ooncluBion thnt the Nanaimo members were honest aud could not be bribed,
but we were told it had been forced upon
thsm. It was simply because they came to
the conclusion they could uot help giving
that $15,000, therefore, they gave it. We
were further told that the financial policy of
the Covert ment had placed them in such a
position now that they were able to do quite
a number of things they were not able to do
before. He said he could readily understand that of course the financial position is
a great ileal better now, because tho resources of the proviuce are better understood and we are better known. He did
not see that any credit was due to this Gov-
ernment but to the development of the proviuce. It has developed very rapidly within the last few years, but there is one pecu
liar thing in connection with this money the
Government waB able to borrow so oheaply
the Premier has forgotten to tell you.
While they had borrowed they borrowed
enough to pay off their consolidated debt,
but they are running into debt now from
S100.000 to $200,000 a year. We have borrowed this capital and have got to
pay it Borne time. And yet we
find        in the        face of that
that this Government goes to
work and borrows $600,000 to
build parliament buildings at Victoria.
The year before they had voted $75,030 or
,*?80,O00 to buy land to put them on aud
then he pte'ends to tell us there wasjusti-
fi tation in going intu debt for $700,OCD for
parliament build ngs. There was never
anything in history to compare with this.
The Dominion House in Ottawa came to
nothing like tho per capita lax that this
does. It is outrageous; it is preposterous.
The Province doee not justify it. If we hud
monoy ou haud, there would be nothing iu
voting a large sum to building parliament
buildings to be an ornament and he supposed an attraction to tourists who came to
Victoria. That was one of the reasons
bro light up for building them, that it would
be a nea'itiful place for tounsis to visit and
we have to cater lo that to the extent of
nearly $700,000 and he believed before they
were finished it would amount to $300,000
or $400,000 more. The Hon. Premier has
told you about bonusing roads, the Nakusp
and the Slocan road, but the sum of money
to be spent on that might build a road. We
find we have numbers of idle men staring us
in the facein this Province. Wehave at them
Wellington, Kamloops, Vancouver and New
Westminster, not by the dozen but by the
hundreds, and we find we have a Government going to spend that amount cf money
on parliament buildings that are utterly
useless. He did not say this with any
harsh feeling againBt the Government,
but these were thoughts that wore firceel
upon him. This Government is not doing
its duty they simply want to anchor the
oapital at Victoria where Borne fourteen or
seventeen members of the Provincial Legislature reside. And if these buildings are
built inside of a year there will be just as
many or more idle men than before. (A
number of people left the hall at this stage
of the proceedings.)
He said he was very glad to hear that it
was the policy of the Government to tax wild landB, because it fully
met hia views. He aaid, he could endorse
the polioy of taxing wild lands aB tho indn
pendent and opposition had^advocated that
from time to tune in the House until the
Government saw it was best, and although
if they not made muoh of a showing they
had helped to spur the Government on to
tax wild land which was one good thing in
itself.
He did nut think it necessary to refer
v. ry much to Ihe Canada Western. He
had voted for the second reading on the
condition that two amendments of his should
go iu. One of the amendments was that
this land should not be exempt from
taxation for a period longer than ten years
and the other that it should be opeu for
settlement at the current rates for government land. They did not Bee fit to accept
these amendments and he, therefore, voted
against it. His sole resson tor voting as he
did was that he knew there was a majority
and they would pass that bill in any event
and he thuught it anything could be added
to it he voted for it with that hope. We
had heard a great deal of talk about the
financial policy of the Government and why
it was we were in such u good financial
position. Well, it was, as ho had s eid
before, owing to the developement of the
Proviuce that it was placed in that position.
Our Province, he said, had beeu placed so
prominently before the money markets of
the world that he did not think-the worst
government could do auy hirm. We find
ihat specimens of our minerals have been
sent over the world and if even one tenth of
the reports were true it would
be a paradise. He presumed that
was the secret of our financial policy, the
Province has got such a good reputation no
ment could spoil it.
In conclusion, Mr. Keith aaid the Government hatl done one good thing since he went
iuto the House and that was about that
wild land tax. They had refused to raise
the tax against Chinese, refused to debar
them from workiug underground, to prohibit monopolies ia railroads, and they are
giving away as rapidly as they can the
rights of this Provinoe. He did not see
that they were developing the resources of
the Province. We are told that these railroads are developing the Province, but
when the business justifies it tho railroad
will be built; if there is traffic to justify a
line of road to be built it will be built. He
considered no government haB any right to
give away laud He certainly would be in
favor of a guarantee because then the land
would come back in tbefu'ure.
Mr. T. Foster, on taking the platform,
said that afier the speeches the audience
had heard he thought it was not advisable
for him to speak at any length, but there
were a few points the previous speakers had
neglected to speak about. He did not know
whether he should say anything about the
Government buildings aa they had heard so
much already, yet there was the temptation
to speak of them because when he remembered tho arguments he had heard he desired to call their minds to some of them.
For instance the Commissioner of Lands and
Works Baid the build ngs were necessary.
That was a proper argument if he could
substantiate it, Mr. Tnrner aaid it would
be a great attraction for tourist a. Then
Colonel Baker said the scheme would auchor
the capital there in Victoria, and finally, the
President of the Council, Mr. Pooley, got up
and told us it was a granel scheme to give
work to the unemployed, so, remembering
���uch things, he felt very much templed to
repeat them. He thought the Government
would have been perfectly right in taking a
certain plan and building a certain portion
of the buildings according to that plan, Bay
$150,000, and he thought most of tho people
throughout British Columbia would have
���aid tbat waa right and sufficient,
The year before $75,000 was appropriated
to build a now registry building and he
believed they had a great necessity for a
new land department and another $75,000,
tie thought, would have been sufficient for
all the buildings for the next twenty-five
years. While* admi ting it would undoubtedly give ample opportunity to workmen
���till, he thought, the Proviuce could not get
the same benefit out of that expeneliture
as if it were applied to building roads.
British Columbia produced ample products
bnt the producers could not get their stuff
out to the markets, consequently, what is
necessary to enable t e farmers to meet the
demand is that they should have better
roads to get their Btuff out, so you see
spending $600,000 ir. the city of Victoria
does not enable the farmers to meet the
demand which they could have had done
had that money been spent on roads. Then
in reaped to the lumber business the Hon.
Premier tells us that arrangements would
have to be made for the payment of a
government scaler. Two years ago the
lumbermen and a considerable number of
loggers held a meeting in Victoria and discussed the same thing
and it was then decided that the
Government should appoint a Government
scalar and they said they would be satisfied
to take lhe official scale. He said he attended at committee mee ings at which
lumbermen and loggers appeared and kuew
what he was talking about. Last winter
the Commissi ).<���'��� of Lantls and Works was
asked why a scaler had not beeu appointed
and he replied that it would nut do to ap-
poiut them as the lumbermen woulel have a
hard enough time to get along. Now, what
did that mean? It meant that if a lumber
scaler was appointed they would have to
pay more Btumpage, but the lumbermen
weie willing to piy for all they got. If the
mill men cannot afford to pay stumpage let
the Govtrnni' nt give them a rebato. Mr.
FoBter then said he believed he should say
something about the British Pacifio. There
again the Hon. Premier says he would never
think of giving such chirters as the
Nanaimo k Esqulmalt railway got. but they
have done it; ihey votetl for the same thing
last winter wheu they extended the time
for the building if the Biiiish Pacific an I
the same iniquitous exemption of land from
taxation, and he did not think it would be
changed as long aa the ptesent primn
miniater is in power. He said, he woulel
tell them one thing, there is a difference between the charter to the Esquimalt k
Nanaimo and to the Canada Western and
that is tho Canaela Western takes its land
in alternate blocks which is an improvement over the old way.
Tho balance of the report of the above
meeting will be published in to-morrow's is-
Bire of The TELEGRAM.

MISREPRESENTING THE PREMIER.
The Ntics-Advertiser of Vaneouver, in iis
issue of Monday last, makes another virulent and most unfair attack on the Provincial Premier Nothing that Mr. D.evie or
his colleagues can do or .say seems to give
the least satisfaction t:i the Vancouver
morning sheet. With a malignity past all
comprehension and which no one would imagine that any man in possession of hiB
right niiml could entertain for another, the
editor of the News-Advertiser continues ou
every possible occasion to inflict column
after ceilumn of solemn and dreary twaddle
on the long suffering readers of that priut
regarding the policy of Premier Davie and
his colleagues, which he proves to his owu
satisfaction at least, is only evil, aud that
oontinually. One would naturally think
that Mr. llavie's visit to the Nanaimo poultry exhibition \v��s a harmless diversion
which even the leader of the Government
aud his colleagues might engage in.
without 1'ffence to the senior member
for Vancouver and managing editor ofcila
morning paper. Perhaps Mr. Davie might
have done so if he had kept his mouth shut
during his visit, and had uol ventured to
speak a word to auy body. But Mr. Davie
having been invited to address a public
meeting here before returning to Victoria,
that fuel drew down upuu his devoted head,
and also upon the heads of the unhappy
rentiers of the News Advertiser, in the
Christmas issue of that paper, over a column of solemu denunciation of the Premier
and malignant misrepresentation of his
speech.
The part of tho address to which especially our fault, finding contemporary takes
objection is the Premier's remarks on the
coal trade. Iu our original report the
words used by the Premier were not repeated !���* rbatim. The following, however, is a
correct version of what the Premier said.
It will be seen that it does nut vary materially from our i.rigiual report published in
The Telegram on Sunday morning.
"Referring to the coal trade, Mr. Davie
said the people of Nanaimo know better
than he could tell them that it was our
most important industry. At present our
market wis confiued entirely to the Pacific
coast, San Francisco and liritish Columbia
cities takiug almost the whole output.
Nanaimo is the chiet coal producing centre
of the province. Were it not for the ooal
mines of Nanaimo anel Wellington, British
Columbia would be ina very backwarel stile
ineleed. Tne coal industry funrrshcs more
than three fourths of our export trade, for
whioh, as he Baid before, San Francisco and
tho local trade arc about our only markets.
It might be said thai none of the coal from
here reaches the interior o; across the |
mountains. Amongst the various provincial
enterprises which ihe Government has
decided to assist is the railroad
from Speucc's Bridge to Nicola, which traverses a cf-uu'ry contaiuiog vaat coal fields
and whl h will opeu up a coal trade ou the
mainland which will uot in any way come
into competition wi:lithe Nanaimo eoal.
When these new fields were opened up an
extensive trade woulel be done with the
great interior ami cabL of the mountains and
employment would he furnished to many
hundreds of people.
The foregoing is a verbatim report of the
Premier's remarks ou thia suhject. One
would naturally think on hearing it ur reading it that there was little harm in it. Not
bo thinks the sapient editor of the News-Ad-
rerfis't: He finds it full of all manner of
political iniquity and commercial it'uorance.
He can find no parallel lor lhe last save in
Dickens' description of Mr.Toots as a political economist. Then after this brilliant exhibition of wit anel satire, which we regret
that our space will uot permit us to quote
in extent >, the managing editor proceeds as
follow a :
The Premier says that, he would like to
see the prosperity, the very existence of
Nanaimo's great industry dependent on its
finding a market solely in San Francisco.
It mutt have been with astonishment that
his hearerB heard such a statement when so
many of them knew from bitter* personal
experience the evils which they had suffered
in the past because the production of their
coal mines had been���if only to a partial extent, yet principally���dependent for a
market in San Francisco. With a slack demand there, consequent on depressed trade
and competition with stocks of coal from
Australia and elsewhere, the people of
Nanaimo know what lessened production in
their mines implies. LeBS work for fewer
minerB, shorter time, smaller wages and all
the ddiiculties, suffering and hardships
which follow from such a slate of things.
And then comes Mr. Davie with his cure for
all such evils���the desire that Nanaimo
should look to San Francisco alone as the
only market where its coal can be sold."
It is scarcely nf cessAry to observe that the
Premier said no men thing as the News-
Advertiser represents him as saying. What
he did say is correctly reporteel in the extract from our owu report of hia speech
given above. San l'Vancisco aud the local
trade are about the only markets for
Nanaimo coal. Whether this is true or not
the people of Nanaimo know. As for the
sapient remarks which'the News-Advertiser
makes on the words which it puts in the
Premier's mouth, we need not waste space
in commenting upon them. Their absurdity
is apparent at a glance. Of a like sort are
its remarks regarding the proposed railway from Spence's Bridge to Nicol* and
the coal field it is expected to open up. It
would be mere wa&te of space to attempt a
formal reply to such trash. It is sullicient
to quote again the words of the Premier,
that when these fields arc opened
up nil extensive trade will be dine
with the east, and employment furnished to
many hundreds of people. We may add
that the trade thus created will in no way
interfere with the coal trade of Nanaimo, as
"none of the ooal from here reaches the interior or heyondthemountains," as Mr. Davie
pointed out, or almost none of it.
Nanaimo has been held up to the rest of
the Province by the opposition aud their organs as a place that can always bo relied on
to return opposition members, aud a place
where members of the Governmeut were
afraid to come to. The fact that the Premier received a cordial and hearty reception
here, together with the colDpse of the separation movement has given tho greatest
alarm to factious that would disrupt the
Province if they could. Mr. Davie's reception in Nanttiinu his blasted their list hope
and ;hey have in consequence become quite
desperate.

It will be seen that some of ihe provincial
dailies have already set about to misrepresent the utterances of Premier Davie at
Saturday night's meeting. Tiik Telegram
has taken the trouble to give a verbatim report of all the speeches regardless of their
political complexion. We believe tho uews
columns of a newspaper, so far as it is possible to make them, should be a perfect
mirror of what they are supposed to represent, As the provincial campaign is now
fairly open aud this is the first meeting held
in Nanaimo we have deemed it iu the public
interest to g've a full and honest report of
all that was said.

The minuteB ui the last meetiug were lead
and on motion adopted.
Communications were read from M.
Wolfe asking that the corner of Wallace
and Fitzwilliiim streets be attended to as it
was caving in. Aid. Nightingale said ihat
he had already given directions for the place
to be attended to.    Received and filed.

The report of the Street Committee and
the road foreman's report, that the work
recommended at the previous meeting was

Mayor Haslam referred to the family in
destitute circumstances on Haliburton
Btreet. He had called and seen the women,
and found the house and the people in the
most deutimte condition. He h vd at once
purchased some food that did not require
cooking, and afterwards had furnished them
household utensils, including a stove and all
the kitchen articles required as also more
food expending altogether Sl'6. The family
would require further maintenance.
Aid. Cooking moved that the report be
adopted and that the Mayor attend to the
mnttir as he already bad done.
Mayor Ha-dam calloil attention to the
subsidence al. the end of the fire hall. It
was so close to the building that he was
afraid it was in danger. The suhsidence
covered a space 30 feet in diameter, having
sunk to a depth of fhree feet in the centre
and six inches at the edges.
Aid. Nightingale and Aid Frame thought
the water in ihe old workings undergn und
should be brought to the surface, and aa it
was the old workings causing thesubsidenoe
perhaps Mr. Robins might, do something
about it.
Aid. McKinnell moved that if p issible the
workings be re timbered, as then the foundation of the Fire Hall would be made safe
and it would allow a free passage of the
water beneath, which otherwise would
swamp some of the neighboring property,
He considered that there wero plenty of unemployed men who would be glad of tho
j ob.
Aid.   Nightingale said  that  he  believed
the old tunnel   was   48 feet down.    On moll tion the matter was referred   to   the S rest
Committee.
AH. Nightingale nnved that a le'ur'.'iig

Cocking moved that the school books be
audited by ttie same auditor as was engaged on the city's accouuts.    Carried.
Aid. Dobeson .moved that the by-law for

Aid. McKinnell asked if the ohairmao of
the street committee had kept minutes of
the different Wt rk that had heen brought to ,,
Xmas Tree at Northfield.
On Saturday evening, 2,'lrd instant, the
Presbyterian Sunday school, Northfield,
gave their annual Christmas tree entertain
ment. Ladies of the congregation had
tastefully decorated the church with mottoes
and evergreens, and in spite of unfavorable
weather it was filled to the doois.
Mr. A. McLeod occupied the chair and
discharged its duties in a most efficient and
pleasing manner. The lengthy programme,
consisting of speeches, recitations, dialogues,
vocal and instrumental music, and given
entirely by the members ot the Sunday
school, wns highly appreciated and warmly
applauded by th*; audience. Mrs. McLeod
acted as organist.
The excitement of the evening reached its
climax at!) p.m. when Santa Clans arrived
to relieve the burdened tree and . islrihute
the presents. It was the children's night
and they thoroughly enjoyed it, and so did
the elders as well, Che meeting closed with
the doxology.

THE   FOOTBALL   FIELD.
Leather Hunters Have a Convivial Time
���The Swifts' Frst Match���The Challenge Cup.
TheNiinaitno Swifts, in their firat mutch,
oa Christmas day played against the Wellington Uuited team and won. The match
took place at Beavan's swamp. In the first
half the game was rather slow, Wellington
gaining oue noal after some rather desultory
play. During thestcond half the Swifts began to take an mterest in the game, und secured two goals Two more were also
claimed by the Swifts but were deputed.
The Swifts will play the Northfield team on
New Yeats' day.
The Nauaimo Rovers team have withdrawn from the contest for the British Columbia Association Challenge cup. Consequently the final remains betweeu the Victoria Wanderers and the Nanaimo Raugers.
After the football match on Saturday th��
Victoria Waudetet-s were Da.*��,UCtted by tho I
Wellington team. The genial boat (Keu-
nedy) of the Wellington hotel, spared uo efforts to have a well spread table in readiness
for the boys.
After the tables were cleared, Wilson
Piper, presideut of the Wellington club,
made a few remarks in regard to the game,
saying that he waB pleased to see that such
good teeliug had prevailed during the game.
Though the Wellington men had lost, as
president he certainly wished it had beeu
otherwise and if the Welliugton team would
only take a lesson fiom the Wanderers it
would benefit them a great deal. His boyB
had played hard to win, but theie was too
much individual play aud not as much passing doue as with the Wanderers. It waB
the best game ever played in Wellington.
Proposing the health of the Queen he eat
down, first requesting Mr. Blackburn, the
Wanderer's captain, to make a speech. He
remaiked that as captain of the Wanderers
he thought that they would be able to come
out on top in their final match with the
Nanaimo Rangers. Captain White, Wellington, thought that if they had played a
more organized game it would have resulted
differently. Messrs. Hook, McNutt, Boyd,
Savage, Foster, Donaldson, Blackburn and
Jackson favored tbe assembly with songs
and recitations, which, amid clouds of tobacco smoke, evoked hearty applause.
Mesara. Simpson and White speaking of the
game, prouounced it a first late one, but
both commented Btrongly on the too selfish
play of the Wellington men. Mr. White,
as captain, however, did not expect to let
the cup go away next year.
Mr. Blackburn, of the Wanderers, thanked the Wellington boys on behalf of hiB
team for their hospitality and hoped in the
near future lo see them in Victoria, when
his men would assuredly return the compliment.
The assembly then dispersed with God
Save the Queen.
The Nauaimo Rangers had a good practice
game of football on Deveril Square on the
afternoon of the 25th, quiie a large number
of spectators turning out to watch the game.
The Rangers nowhaveonlyabyetoplay, and
then play the Victoria Wanderers for the
British Columbia Association Challenge Cup
and medal on a dale tbat will be decided by
the British Columbia Football Association,
which will meet shortly. The match will
take place in Nauaimo aud will be a very
Interesting one, both teama being champions
so far and at the match it iB confidently
hoped by the Nanaimo boys that they will
remain champions and secure the cup.

A Broken Rib.
Charlie Chutt, bartender at the Windsor
House, on the evening of Christmas day
broke one of his ribs. The accident occurtd
through the cellar door behind the bar being
open, whilst the Chinaman had gone down
and Chutt not having seen the Chinaman
open the cellar suddenly slipped down the
open stairway whilst attending to Borne
customers. It is generally hoped by
Charlie's many friends that he will soon be
about again.
A Yuletide Entertainment.
A large crowd attended the Wallace street
Methodist church on Monday night to witness the entertainment by the Sunday
Bchool children. The programme consisted
of choruses, recitaiions, solos and duets,and
some pretty tableaux. The choruses,the performers of which were trained by Mr. and
Mrs. Powers,were very pretty.and the boIos
by Misses Harwood and Pearson, with the
chorus, were considered one of the features
of the evening, whilst the duet by MiBS
Lilian Planta aud Miss Calverly was also
remarkably well rendered. The tableaux
were very interesting. Miss Tanuer is to be
congratulated on her excellent training of
the little ones taking part iu them and Miss
L. Planta, on the performance of herself and
her juvenile coadjutors in the sketch
"keeping school." The church was prettily
decorated, there being placed over the pulpit a twelve foot star of evergreens having a
smaller one iiinide it and behind were over a
hundred gilt stars suspended by invisible
wires, the whole with the other decorations
having a very pretty effect.
The Police Court Aftermath.
In the police court yesterday before J. P.
Planta, J. P., a string of dusky denizens of
the primeval foreBt, answering respectively
te the cognomens of Louisa Muckawa,
Charley W. Quean, Thomas WamaBs, and
Billy Gackas were arraigned on a charge of
having been drunk and incapable at the
Euclataw lamp on the previous day. Five
dollars and costs, or one month each, was
the penalty awarded.
John Lister and Charley WatkinB,charged
with supplying liquor to Indians were remanded until to-day.
John McGnily and James McKlnnell.who
had celebrated Christmas by �� too liberal
nse of Kentucky rye, being in consequence
arraigned as having bees drank and incapable, were respectively remanded until today, and fined five dollars ind costs or a
week in ikookum ho��s��.
Samuel Hicks was charged on the information of Thomas Cook with having stolen
$50 from him at the Somerset hotel, Wellington on Christmas day. Evidence being
fiven by the proseoutor, the aconsed was
ound over in his ewn recognizances in the
sum of $250 and one surety for $250 to appear at tho next oourt of auhe ut Nanaimo,
to answer the indictment.
Attractive Fartbiou*, Prevailing In Handsome Articles For the Table.
There are fashions In glass as in all other
matters, The handsome cut telass which
was so long in favor (and which is still
used) must necessarily be very tiiick and
correspondingly heavy to allow of depth
for cutting. It has in cousequeuco been
somewhat superseded by liner and more
trasue i)SttPTOB, iu which wine certainly
looks more tempting.
The latest prevailing taste is not In favor
ofculuiid glnsses; even for hocks white is
often used, and citron ami pale green have
taken the place of the old ruby and deep
green. A revolution I-i the shape of champagne glasses has apparently proved a welcome o'.ie, for the wide, low glass is less of
ten found among the newer patterns, be
iug replaced by the old tall, narrow shape.
These look more graceful and are easier to
lif' than the others.
Sorbet glasses are coming into fashion.
Tiiis is a welcome innovation, as tbat particular kind of ice has hitherto been served
in ordinary custard glasses, which, to tbe
foreigner at least, must seem rather anomalous.
Engraved glass is still used, and very
graceful shapes are produced in faint or
twisted wave. Elizabethan jugs and
beakers are made in wave or threaded
glass, and mounted in silver. Several
other dainty novelties are made in the
same style, such as small jugs for liquors
(or for scent), large and small mugs for
lager beer, etc. A handsome glass bowl
would bo as suitable for flowers as for
salad, for which it was originally intended.
When used for the former purpose, it can
be fitted with a wire netting. Glass spoons
and forks, also mounted in silver, accompany the salad bowls. Claret jugs and
champagne jugs are now in order. These
are of cut glass silver mounted with a
separate silver mounted glass bowl for ice.
A Fin In *Need Is n Friend Indeed.
Fashion declares for more pincushions,
and tbe purely masculine cushions are
many of them truly unique. If yon wish
to present a souvenir or have lost a philo-
pena, you need look no farther than the
following described iu the New Vork Herald: The proper form���which this time is a
good form���is circular for the permanent
cushion of the dressing room, and to be
just right it must be free of feminine frills
and must be made to hang upon the wall.
Men dislike fussy things, and they posl-

tively hate cushions and other things that
are easily shoved about and tumbled ou
the floor, but a hanging cushion, which is
never in tbe wny and Is never out of place,
Is a very delight.
The lower design in the drawing Is an
excellent hanging cushion of soft olive silk
worked in gold aud perfectly stuffed, to
which latter fact, by the way, is due much
of its success and the admiration it excites
In masculine minds,
The card cushion is Intended for pocket
use and has the advantage of being far better than many daintier things. To make
one like or similar to it select two queens
from any good pack. Hind all the edges
with deep gold colored satin ribbon, the
stitches with black embroidery silk. Make
eight corners iu gold colored satin and
baste one to each corner of the two cards.
Place one card upon the other and overhand
them together with as many invisible
stitches us you can make. You will find
that the cushion, besides being unusual
and novel, is really excellent for its purpose as well. It has a distinctively mannish look and is suggestive of bachelor parties aud all sorts of fun.

In
of his reproaches.    The mortification of
the rebuke he had received from hia
chief,   the   grave consequences to his
party which might ensue that night.had
excited him beyond all control; and the
thought that he had been cozened by one
against whom his instincts had warned
him from the very first, but whom he
had nevertheless trusted with his honour j
���to whom he had actually offered his j
name���filled him with a fury of anger. ���
Forcing his way to the drawing-room, I
���where Muriel was distractedly juicing to
and fro, he upbraided her in unmeasured terms, accused her of basely tricking
him,  of profaning the   solemnity ana
purity of affection,  of having brought
about his ruin and his disgrace.
He would not listen to any defence;
she had been making a mock of him���
���would have made him the tool of the
rile machinations of blackguardly conspirators. He cursed the hour when he
had been inveigled into her den of mischief; he cursed each moment he had devoted to contemplating her false fair
face. She should never see him again���
never! never! He took back his vows
of love, cancelled for ever his offer of
marriage. Let her give him back his
papers���all of them���all!���and he would
fly from her as he would from a pestilence. '
She flung herself at his feet and burst
into tears. At any other time her natural pride would have dictated a
very different reception of his reproaches ; but the parting with Laura
Kingdon had unnerved her, and she felt
altogether wretched and heart-broken.
To learn, too. how serious must be the
result of her impulsive robbery of the
despatch-box seemed the crown of many
an unworthy betrayal of Chester's confidence. She bowed herself and wept
bitterly.
Her tears brought a revulsion of feeling to Cecil Chester. All his manhood
and compassion answered to that appeal.
What brutal things had he said? Would

spare her one tear? He felt it in his
heart, and began at once to assure her
of his undying devotion, his perfect
trust, and to beseech her forgiveness.
It was a lovers' quarrel, a thunderstorm
in th* lilne sky. and before long the sun
bur��t tlirou;;'. and their confidence was
renewed. But time pressed���ah, how
sadly it pressed upon Cecil Chester!���
and he must use winged speed to r. turn
with his papers to the House. There
stood the box. He grasped it like his
honour, and approached her to give one
last kiss of forgiveness before he departed.
But with a shriek she held his arm,
bade him Bet d~��Ti the box, open it
instantly, and restore to her the petition
in favor of tlie release of Thomas Murdoch, Fenian. Struck by the sudden
terror id h��r face, he unlocked the box
and produced u.e packet.
"Wtt��t is tl..��?" he cried; "tt la too
heavj for a roli of paper."
He looked at hoi ghastly pallor, and a
suspicion came like a thunderbolt upon
him.
"Give it to me!" she screamed, as he
bent down liis ear to li��t��i to a slight
ticking sound within tk-< p^Aet.
His answer was to take out his knife
and rip the cover open. He came upon
an iron canister.
"And you gave tttto to HMChee**

bring destruction upon others if only I

that; but do not blame me for what waa
done without my sanction or my knowledge."
'���You gave it into my hands."

Bound within the canister had caught
her ear. She snatched the accursed
thing out of his hands, and flung it from
her with all her strength. It struck
against the eide of the open French
Window, and fell just outside the room.
As the infernal machine reached the
ground it exploded with a frightful concussion. The house seemed to reel and
shudder as Muriel O'Connor Hung her
arms about the man whose life she had
blasted.   -

once to the support of his betrothed,
using the influence of his position, a
thing repugnant to him, to obtain an Interview with the woman lie loved. He
steadfastly refused to believe that so
gentlt* a creature could commit an act of
violence, unless in a self-defence which
called for his approval and admiration.
Laura hud be n locked up all ni ;ht, a
prey to the most dismal terrors. Before
her rose in sombre -���;���*.��� rV* crovded
court, the harsh questioning, the torturing delays, the great trial, the summing
up of the judge, the damning verdict of
the jury, tlie awful judgment, tho gallows, and the shameful end. But all
this faded into a y. arn *d for prospect
when confronted with the ahe *n*i ive of
suspicion falling upon her sister��� ber
dear little "Dorrie." Would it were all
over, and the frightful expiation made,
if that would secure safety and peace to
the one whose honour she preferred to
her own life!
The visit of Lord Willmore was a
grievous embarrassment to her. His
manly sympathy and yearning love
wrenched" at her heart. How could she
reply to his questions upon the charge
against her? Unable to profess innocence���not daring to tell him of the
martyrdom to which she was dot *r lined
to submit, lest the object of her sacrifice should be defeated by his interference���she was compelled to rpmaintleaf
to his entreaties, silent under hi:, adjurations to tell him the whole truth and
claim the white handed innocence
which he would stake his soul upon.
Willmore's reaction from his first suspicion and jealousy wasjcomplet'o and he
sought to atone for the gniltiness of
doubting her by a confidence that had
no basis in renson or judgment, but
which sprang directly from the heart
and was an instinct or his love.
In vain did she attempt to make him
believe her guilty. She could not aver
positively that she had committed this
crime; sin* only bade him depart and no
longer concern himself with the late of
"an unworthy girl."
"Unworthy?" he cried. "I will swear
you arc not unworthy of the best devotion that the best man in the world could
give. Not a thousand mysteries, though
they were infinitely more insc-utable;
not a thnnsiii! 1 vill; i.ious ace...-..tions;
no! not even your own confession, shall
convince me that you are unworthy of
the truest love, the most absolute faith,
of such a one as myself."
So strong a proof of his devoted affection did more to reduce the sorrow-
stricken girl to weakness than all the
gathering clouds of circumstance. She
loved him tenderly, truly, with the all-
sufflcinguess of a maiden love, and to
lose him, to stand under a shadow, and
such a shadow, before his eyes, was
agony to her. Truly the scaffold had
no terrors for her to equal that. He
left her sobbing hysterically, and went,
although he knew it was a forlorn hope,
to offer bail for her temporary release.
This was of course refused. In a state
bordering on distraction he set off to find
Cecil Chester, and learnt, after protracted inquiry, that Chester had not
been home during the past night, had
not been seen at his clubs, and, by mysteriously disappearing on the previous
evening from the House with the notes
and papers essential to the promotion of
the Irish measure introduced by the Chief
Secretary, had left the Cxovernment in
a very awkward quandary.
Concern for his friend was therefore
added to Willmore's distress on account
of Laura, and he returned to the latter
in a most disordered condition.
But with Laura things had taken a
turn for the better during his absence.
An unexpected witness had been present
at her examination���no other than Dorothy Dundas, whose singular resemblance to her sister had borne out her
claim tu be identified ns the midnight
fugitive in Laura Eiugdon's stead,
Dorothy's circumstantial account of
the events of that night on the railway-
platform, together with the arrest of
Dennis Donovan, was sufficient to justify the magistratein dismissing the charge
against Laura, who, now relieved from
anxiety on behalf o' hi ;* sister, was able
to account for her possession of the dagger; the ticket-collect* . i *, win i confronted with tlie sisters, flatly declined
to swear that Laura Kingdon was the
woman he had seen at the station.
Before this, however, Dorothy had
availed herself of Laura's pixverlessness
to oppose her, and made ,*i full uud free
confession to Willmore, which dispelled
the mystery that had hung like au unwholesome fog between the lovers.
Reluctant as she was to accept rescue
at the co.it of her sister's shame, the release was to Laura like the salvation of
a lost soul, implying as it did escape
from dire peril, and restoration to the
happy privilege of loving one who had
been tried and not found wanting,
As they were leaving the court Dorothy was accosted by a police-sergeant,
who required her at once to accompany
him to a police station at the East End
of London, there to formally identify
Dennis Donovan as tho man sh ���_> had
seen murder Ralph Kestrel; the importance of the case being such that the
police were anxious to see the suspected
murderer committed for trial without
delay.
Lord Willmore and Laura volunteered
to aooouipauy her, the latter feeling
that so savage a beast could hot be
caged too soon.
In the gloomy room devoted to the
purposes of justice in the I... .. | ij
