Now, how is this most importtuit object to be attained */ As was attempted to. lie showu ill a previous
article) the key-note, so to speak;
should bo struck by the Govern
ment. Witlf' tliose iii puwcf'wlio
cannot appreciate the. primary importance of agriculture, who regard
tho agricultural classes as lSmmiUe
whose value is tn be gauged Only by
revenue-producing capacity, as is the
Case now, the task becomes Illillost
ihopeless. But if, on tbe contrary,
those in power duly appreciate the
importance of the; great Mater in
dustry, and if the legislation aiid
policy of tlie Government recognise
that importance and aim at giving
agriculture its trite position, then
will tlie task bean easy and a gracious ant. A very important means
to be employed is, as has been al.
'ready intimated, annual exhibitions,
and we desire to refer briefly to this
(mint just here. Last year an exhi
bition was held at Cliilliwliuck. A
little later in the season another was
held at Victoria... The former made
lio pretentious to being anything
'more than a local, district all'air.
The latter styled' itself a provincial
exIiWtSdpi'iiijlJy; ) comparison, the
former was a success and the latter
|t failure).. Reliable and unprejudiced
judges who attdnded both declare
that, had the speciineus collected at
Chilliwhack been set off to the same
advantage}'.*.* were those at Victoria,
the district exhibition would have
eclipsed the so-called provincial oiie.
The agricultural '' organization at
Victoria has persisted in Calliijg it

Faction vs. Principle.
Tlie ol'gsns of the present administration have a habit of representing
the Opposition in the Legislature as
"factious" and "hungry,"—actuated
solely by desire for office. Our attention has besn more particularly
directed to the subject just now by
tn article in Wednesday's Standard,
und*«r'the caption, "The Hungry Opposition,'1 wherein those members of
tlieHouse comprising the Opposition
are represented as * collection of
hungry men, conspiring together for
tbe.jAirpoee of siezing the reins of
power for their own aggrandisement
—hot, from any principle or policy,
for they have none; aud they are
held up as having factiously hindred
the public business lust session from
sheer, selfishness and spite. Now,
perhaps a glance at one or two historical, incident* may aid the reader
in discovering tlit true inwardness of
the present Ministers tnd forming
correct conclusions ts to how these
men will compart with others in
reeasct * to the accusations brought
against the Opposition in the now
C expiring House, Mr. Walkem, it
will be remembered, was a member
of the McCreight Ctbinet; and when
that Ctbinet drifted among breakers
what did he do I Was he prepared
manfully to stand or fall by tlie
principles tnd policy of the Cabinet
of which he was then a member 1
Not he. Not only was lie the first
rat to desert the sinking ship, but it
was ascert.in.il afterward beyond all
possibility of doubt that he had actually been for some time in secret
communication with the enemy—
that it htd been all arranged for him
to atep from tbe one ship to the
other without ever wetting liis feet!
History records the fact of "Judas
Iscariofahd "Pilate," having met secretly at Kreimlor's Farm on Sunday
f~ tnd arranged the whole plot! Clever,
do you say) 0, yes. But bow about
principle) How about honor—common deeenc>j\ It will be remembered
thtt Mr. Beaven was a staunch supporter of the McCreight Government ; but for all thtt he crops up
in the Walkom Government I Next,
tnd mere notably, we find tbe "Honorable Tom'1 in a role very similar
to that of his leader. A member of
the Elliott Government, he succeeded
in wriggling himself into the Walkem Government; and unless dome
rumor greatly wrongs him, he made
tdvtncet to the present Opposition
during the late session, when tlie fall
of the Government appeared imminent, offering to join them and bring
with him his sole follower and solitary admirer on condition, of course,
of having t place in the new Cabinet 1 To the credit of the Opposition be it recorded that these dishonorable advances were treated as
they deserved. And yet it is these
men who have the unparalleled audacity to prtte tbont political principle and honor I Out upon such unblushing impertinence I So much for
the' three Minsters who are put forward by their paid organs—paid witli
the people's money—at possessing a
monopoly of political principle and
patriotism. A word about factious
opposition and obstructing public
business, i In order to institute t
comparison, wt will take the reader
back to the spring of 1878. The
Elliott Government was in power
tnd the Legislature was in session.
Parties were ao evenly divided that
the full House, on a division, stood
13 to 11. Through the recreancy of
one member, who, while professing
to be with the Government, was
secretly coquetting with tbe Opposition, the vote repeatedly stood 12
to 11; hut in no instance was the
Government reduced to the desperate necessity of retaining office by
the casting vote of the Speaker, at
was repeatedly the case last session.
Well, what course did the Opposition
of tkat period, the party in power
now, pursue) Why they adopted a
policy of tht most glaring factiousness,' and, by liarnuning the Government, actually succeeded in obstructing ine public business for seven
weeks! Aud. what'great principle
wu at issue then 1 Nothing beyond
the dogged determinttion to turn
others out of office and get in themselves. In order to accomplish thtt
patriotic object, they did uot hesitate to  delay public   business for
seven weeks and involve tiie country
in the turmoil and expense of a general election and an extra session !
And yet these are the vory same
men who raised such a howl because
the present Opposition occasioned
some little delay of ordinary business in order to investigate the dry
dock affair which threatened to
swamp the revenues of tbe country I
These sre the men who with a hypocritical pretense for the public good,
so savagely denounced the Opposition for entertaining the idea of turning them out of office upon the most
momentous questions of public policy, when the House stood 12 to 12
and they had to invoke the casting
vote of the Speaker! And it is these
men, these three patriots, who now,
through their organs, have the unblushing temerity, the indecency to
prate about honor and principle, and
accuse the present Opposition of being actuated by greed for office I 0
teinpora t 0 mores! We are, in one
sense, glad of the opportunity the
Walkem Government are affording
us of presenting the record of these
men fairly before the country on the
eve of a general election. The electors will very soon be called upon to
cast the most important vote ever
cast in the Province, and it is well
that they should go to the ballot box
with their memories refreshed and
their eyes thoroughly opened.

Editorial Notes.
Capitalisti desirous of investing in
real estate or periom in want of eligible homesteads should look over the
various properties advertised in our
columns. , In Mr. Morrison's list there
are some exceptionally desirable properties, and inasmuch as he is anxious
to sell, favorable terms could undoubtedly bo made. Now is the time to
invest. Values must continue steadily
to advance.
It is gratifying to know that somo of
Victoria's best men are willing now to
step to the front and do their part towards rescuing the affairs of the country from the hands of the scheming,
blundering banditt, who have brought
matters to such n terrible pus. There
can be no doubt whatever tlmt the
next election will make sweeping
changes in the personnel of both the
House and the Government, and it is
fitting that the principal community
should lead off.
It would scarcely seem practicable,
at any rate until railway communication with the interior shall have been
established, to bring all the farmers
together in one agricultural organization for the purposes of united Provincial exhibitions. The most that can
reasonably be attempted in that direction at the present time is to work the
part of the Province lying west of the
Cascade range under one organization.
That being the case, it scarcely seems
quite fair to the interior that a considerable sum should be taken from
the general revenue towards promoting
exhibitions on the seaboard, while
nothing at all is done iu a like direction in respect of tho agricultural interests beyond the Cascades. Certain
it is that the farmers there stand quite
as much in need of encouragement as
do those on the seaboard, and it is
equally certain that they have as strong
a claim upon the general revenue.
While glad to see help extended to the
farmers on this side of the mountains,
we cannot but feel that it would only
be just and proper that tliose on the
other side should receive similar en*
couragement.
What is most wanted now in this
Province is labor, both skilled and unskilled—not forgetting domestic help.
Perhaps in no country did the supply
ever fall so much short of the demand
as it does hero at the present time.
The railway works are absorbing the
greater part of what labor is available.
All the white labor that can be got is
taken up. Several hundred Indisns
have been employed, and thousands of
Chinese swarm along the line, and yet
the cry is for more! The farmers are
sorely perplexed. They sea a ready
market for all they can produce on
the one hand, while, on the other,
they see very little prospect of obtaining laborers. And other industries are
no better. The lumber business is
cramped for lack of men, and those
who have embarked their capital in
the fishery business are in utter dismay at the prospect of the depleted
labor market. As a matter of course,
wages have risen fully fifty per cent;
but it is not a question of wages at all
now. A sufficient supply of labor cannot be had at any price. We must
confess that the situation is perplexing
to employers of labor—in fact to all,
If yon suffer from any chronic disease

At tho time this journal condemned
Mr, Walkem's attack upon the Judges
when introducing the an ti .quashing
convictions bill, this is what the Winnipeg free Press, tho leading Manitoba
paper, has to say about it.-—
"In the British Columbia Lngisla*
turo recently a motion was made fur a
return of all magistrate's convictions
quashed by judges, with particulars
regarding them.. In reply, Mr. Walkem, the Attorney-General of the Province, made a bitter attack ou tlie
judges, saying that 'a number of convictions before justices of the peace
had been quashed on trivial grounds —
such as the absence of a dot to an 'i'
or a cross to a 't.' An Attorney-General thus attacking the Bench on the
floor of Parliament is surely not well
qualified for his position."

Extreme irritation now came into
play. Miss Danesdale raised her voice,
and; in a far from pleasant tone, cried:
"Sid the Spartliwaitos keop you so
late*,!!-'*'
"I■ have-come straight here from the
Spar th wattes/' he replied, mournfully
accojphg1 -fho fish which was offered to
hiin. .'', '*]«,
"Wlipih did yoli meet1 there?" she
Aisy^il iflio could have performed
the-ftK^r-'tookiiilg under Randulf's
wearily drooped eyelids into bis eyes,
would have been rewarded with the
vision of ;« most uncanny looking
sprite, which suddenly came floating
And whirling up from some dark well
of wickedness deep down in a perverted masculine nature. When he raised
hia ey.elidSj thu sprite hud discreetly
drawn a veil between itself and the
audience. None the less did it prompt
the reply:
■'tyh^-l—t-ttifif people. I sat next
an awfully good-looking woman, whom
I admired. One of those big, black
women, like a rocking-horse. Clumped the bit just like a rocking-horse,
too, and pranced like one. She
aaid y'k\'j
There were accents in Randulfs
voice which called a smile to the faces
of some ot the company, who had begun to listen to his tale. Miss Danes-
dale exclaimed almost vivaciously.
"Why you must mean Mrs. Pr ''
"Don't tell ine before I've finished.
I don't know her name. Her husband
had been ill it seemed, and she had
been nursing him, and they pitied her
became of it; and she said, "Oh, I
have nused him before now. I held
him in my arms when he was a
h-b^f.'"
"Randnlf!"
"I was h—horror-struck; nnd I suppose I showed it, for she suddenly gave
n wild prance, and champed the hit
inore titan ever, and then she said:
"Of course I don't remember it, but
they tell me I did, My dear husband
is a jw ,ov two younger than I mn,
but sogopd.' '*'
Mr. Danesdale sank again into <t reflective eilence. Sir Gabriel and the
elder portion of the company went off
into a sturm of laughter, which did not
in the least mitigate the deep gloom of
the heir. Miss Bunion's color had increased to an alarmingly feverish hue.
Miss Danesdale looked unutterable
things. Sir Gabriel, who loved a joke,
presently wiped the tears from his
eyes, and said, trying to look rebuking:
"My dear boy, if you lot that sar»
castic tongue of yours run on in that
way, you'll be getting into mischief.'1
"/sarcastic!" he ejaculated, with a
look of the deepest injury. "My dear
air!"
"Will you have roast mutton, Randulf ff" asked Miss Danesdale, behind
her mittened hand, as if she were putting some very disgraceful question,
and dreaded lest the servants should
hear it.    "Because if "
"Roaat mutton? oh, joy!" he exclaimed, with a look of sudden hungry
animation, which greatly puzzled some
of the company, who saw him that
night for the lirst time, and who said
afterward that really that young Danes-
dale was very odd. He came in so late
to dinner, and sat looking as if hu were
going to faint, aud told a very ill-natured story about Mrs. Prancington
(though Mrs. Prancington is a ridiculous woman, you ltnuw), nnd then ho
suddenly fell upon the roaat mutton
with an ogrolsh fury, and could hardly
be got to speak anothor word throughout the meal. They were sure he had
astonished poor Anna Dunlop beyond
bounds, for she did not speak to him
again.
Perhaps Mr. Danesdale had desired
this consummation, perhaps uot. At
least, he did not murmur at it, but attacked the viands oeforo him in such a
manner as soon to make up for lost
time.   y
Presently the ladies went to the
drawing-room, and the men were left
to their* wine. All the rooms nt Danes-
dale Castle were agreeable, because
they could hot help being ro. They
were quaint and beautiful in themselves,'and formed parts of a quaint
and beautiful old house; and of course
Miss Danesdale did not wish to have
vulgar rooms, and had not, unless a
certain frigid stiffness be vulgarity,
which, in A"*ithdrawing-room," meant
to be a center of sociability and ease,
I am inclined to think it is.
Miss Dunlop was staying in the
house. The other ladies were neighbors from houses uot too faraway. All
belonged to "the dale." They were
not of a very lively type, being nearly
all advanced in middle life, stout nnd
inclined to discuss the vexed topics of
domestics, children, the state of their
green-houses, their schools, and thoir
clergy, all of which subjects they seemed to swtep together into one category,
or, as Randulf had been known irreverently to say, "These women lump
together infant schools, bedding out
plants, parsons and housemaids in a
way that makes it impossible for nny
ignorant fellow like me to follow the
conversation.'   \
Theso dowagers,'with Miss Dunlop
looking bored and cross (as indeed she
felt), and Miss Danesdale looking prim,
ar she stepped from one to the other
of her guests, to mutter a remark and
receive an answer—these ladies disposed themselves variously about the
well-warmed, comfortable drawing-
room, while the one who was the
youngest of them, the must simply
dressed, the handsomest, and by far
the most intelligent looking, the wife
of Stanniforth, sat a littlo Apart, And
felt Amused at tht proceedings.
"When the men come in, Anna, and
if KAnduU oonwi fo-fflU» just ask him
something, will you f
"Ask him what? If he enjoyed the
win* an* walnuts ai much as the ronst
mutton ? or if he thinks me like Mrs.
PrAncingtoiv?"
"Ob no, dear. And if he did, Mrs.
Pmncihgton ii % very handsome woman.   But ask him if he has seen any
thing of the Miss Conisbroughs today."
"The' Miss fjumsbrough* ? Are they
friends of yours?"
No, but they are of his—dear
friends. Just ask him how long he
stopped at their house on his way
home. I must go, dear. There's old
Mrs. Marten looking tit to eat me for
not having been civil to her."
She rose, and walked with neat,
prim little steps across thu room.
Miss Dunlop sat still for a few minutes; her big black eyes fixed upon her
big, black-mittened hands, upon heryel-
low satin and black-lace lap, and upon the
black and yellow fan which her fingers
held. After frowning at her hands for
some time, she arose, and went to the
piiuio, near which sat Mrs. Mallesou,
tho vicar's wife. Miss Dunlop placed
herself upon the music stool, and began to play a drawing-room melody
of questionable value as a composition,
in a pronounce, bravura style.
By and by the men did come in—
Sir Gabriel and the vicar first. A fine
old gentleman was Sir Gabriel Danes-
dale. Abundant curly hair, which
had long been snow-white; large, delicately chiseled features of great
strength and power) And somewhat of
tho old Roman type, and a complexion
of a cloar, healthy brown, not turned
crimson, cither with his out-door
spurts or his modest potations. He
looked as if he could be stern upon occasion. His face and bearing showed
that mingling of patrician pride and
kindly bonhomie which made hiin what
he was, and whieh had secured him
tho love and good-will of friends and
dependents years ago.
Behind him followed Randulf, as
tall as his father, and with shoulders
as broad, looking at the moment as if
he could hardly summon up energy to
move one foot before the other. He
was listening with the air of a martyr
to a stout country squire with ft red
face, and other country squires—the
husbands of those squiressss who sat
iu un amply spreading ring about the
room—followed after him, talking—
what do country gentlemen talk about,
whose souls are in the county hunt and
the agricultural interest?
Randulf "promenading" his eyes
around the room, beheld Miss Dunlop
nt the piano, and tho vicar's wife sitting close beside her. To the left he
saw the ring of dowagers, "looking
like a peacock's tail magnified," he said
to himself, and tied toward the priestess for refuge.
"I suppose you got here before the
storm came on, Mrs. Mallesou ?"
"Yes, we did. We shall have to
drive home in it, though."
"I'm afraid you will. What roads
they are here, too! I know I thought
so this afternoon, riding from Hawes
 Don't   lot  us   interrupt  your
music on any account, Miss Dunlop,"
he cuiitinued blandly, as she stopped.
"Oh, I've finished," answered she,
somewhat unceremoniously cutting in
to the conversation. "Did you ride
from Hawes, this afternoon ?''
"Yes," said ho, instantly becoming
exhausted again.
"And that is a rough road ?"
"Very."
"It conies through Yoresett, doesn't
it?"
'It does."
■Philippn hns been telling me about
your freinda the Miss Conisbroughs."
"Has she?"
"The Miss Conisbroughs," said Mrs.
Mallesou. "Do you know them, Miss
Dunlop?"
"Not at all, but I hear Mr. Danes-
dale does."
"Do you, Mrs. Mnlleson?" he asked.
"Very well indeed.   They are great
friends of mine and uf yours too,
it seems."
"Of mine? Well, I've known them
just as long as I've known you. May
I say that Mrs. Mallesou and the
Misses Conisbrough are great friends
of mine!"
"Yes, if you like. If they allow you
to become their friend, I congratulate
you."
"They are neices to that aged r—reprobate, Aglionby of Scar Foot, ain't
they ?"
"They aro."
"Won't you tell Miss Dunlop about
them ?—she wants to know, dreadfully."
"I do, immensely. Are they pretty,
Mrs. Mallesou I" Bhe asked.
"A great deal more than pretty, I
should say," aaid Mrs, Mulleaon, in
her hearty, outspoken tones—tones
which had not yet lost their girlish
ring. "I call the eldest one splendid,
so handsome, and so calmly dignified!"
"Yes," said Randulf, whose eyes
were almost closed, and his face expressionless, as he recalled the pale,
woe-stricken countenance which that
"calmly-dignified" Miss Conisbrough
had raised to him that afternoon. He
felt n tightening at his heart-strings.
Mrs. Mallesou went on:
"As for Delphine, I think she ia exquisite. I never saw any lovelier girl,
I don't care where. You know, if that
girl wero rich, and came out in London
—I used to visit a great deal in London before I was married—and I am
sure, if she wore introduced there, aha
would make a furore—dressed in
style that suited hei, you know. Don't
you think she would ?"
"I should not be surprised," he returned, apparently on the verge of utter extinction, "one never can tell
what thore will be a furore about in
London—Chinamen, actresses, living
skeletons, bilious greens—yes, I dare
say she would."
Mise Dunlop laughed a little ill-
naturedly, while Randulf, displaying
suddenly more animation, added:
"But the youngest, Mrs, Malleson.
The little bhick-hrowed one. She is
just as handsome us she can be. What
a life she would lead any man who wns
in love with her!"
"Sho will bo a strikingly beautiful
woman some day, without doubt; but
she is n child, as yet."
"Now, Miss Diuilnp, you have heard
an indisputable verdict on tho good
looks of the Miss Ovnisbroughs. All I
can say is, that ta me Mrs. Malleson's
remarks Appear to be full of wisdom
and   penetration.    Ai for anything
else Father."
Sir Gabriel was passing. Despite
his over-powering languor, Randulf
rose, as he called him, and Itood beside him saying:
