U
It  has  baen  aaid that politica
make* strange bedfellow*   Events
.sWsfe-ite ^en%^(«*t«»M,«* l*'«!
capital furniah a striking illustration
pf this fact.   But strange bedfellows
are not only made, but unmade.
There is au old adnge about rogues
quarreling, whicli we shall not quote
in this connectin, but simply say
that Mr.  Beaven and Mr. Humphreys, two members of the Into
government,   hnve  quarreled,   nnd
their disagreement has been made
the occasion of some very extraordinary developments.   At the public  meeting  held   in  Victoria on
Saturday night to discuss tbe Kootenay bill, Mr. Humphreys was one
of the principal speakers.   He denounced   the   bill   in  unmeasured
terms, and called upon the people
to rally in defence of their rights.
Not content with attacking the bill,
he attacked also the members of the
legislature, declaring that the members who supported the Kootenay
bill were traitors and were receiving
a consideration from the company
for their support.   The charge, com-,
ing from any reliable source, would
hava been considered serious; but it
so happens that  Mr. Humphreys
does not enjoy the reputation of considering carefully either his public
or private utterances, and some peo
pie  laughed, while  others yelled.
We hare before referred to a similar
charge   brought  forward   by  the
Standard, and we take occasion now
to soy thvt we consider audi a charge
or insinuation cowardly and  con
temptible unless it ia backed up with
proof.   If either the Standard or
Mr. Humphreys   lias  evidence to
show that the house has been corrupted, then let the evidence be pro-
duped.: if they hare none, which we
more than suspect, they are both
cotemptible   slanderers.    As   Mr.
Beaven has from the first supported
the Kootonay bill, Mr. Humphreys'
remarks were, of course, fully applicable to him, and he naturally resented the soft impeachment.   But
Mr. Humphreys refused to accept
Mr, Beaven's  denial.   He  stated
that during the sixteen years he had
aat iu the house he would never have
aupported ony measure of the kind
in the house unless he had an interest in it I And yet thia same Mr.
Humphreys held a portfolio under
Mr, Walkem and under Mr, Beaven I and he supported the Island
railway bill which gave away 1,900,-
000 aores of rich mineral lands in
consideration of the construction of
76 miles of road.   It was to have
been expeoted tbat the members of
the honse would not permit the
statement* of Mr. Humphreys to
pass unnoticed, and several of them
handled him without mercy.   We
have already referred to the great
divergence whioh exists among members of the house, and the public
generally, on this bill, and we have
no reason to doubt that each party
ia honest in its contentions.   The
tactics adopted by Mr. Humphreys
and the Standard and some others
will do their cause no good.   It is
not inainuation and invective that
will   bring  conviction.   What wo
want in dealing With a matter of
such importance is argument founded  oii   fact.    Some   irresponsible
scribblers have been endeavoring to
persuade thu public that the present
legislature  is composed chiefly of
thieves and jackasses.  If Mr. Humphreys can be taken as a fair sample
of the late house, and if his opinion
ot Mr, Beaven ia worthy of any consideration, the members of the present l-ouae will certainly loae nothing
by coopariaon  with  their predecessors.   If they are thieves and
jackasses, what kind of cattle must

The plan of disposing of the sewage
of Berlin by npplying it ns n fertilizer1
to farms near the oity hns proven much
less satisfactory than wns expected.
Not only have the farming operations
unprofitable! but the health of the inhabitants has been endangered by
noxious vapors arising from sewage-
saturated land.
At the age of 97, Mons. Ohevreul,
the eminent French chemist, can look
back over an active scientific career of
probably greater length than haa fallen
to the lot of any other man; and in n
late address to the French Academy
he hud occasion to refer to a communication lie hud made to that body
nearly 71 years before.
Prof, Graber, of Czernowitz, Austria, has mado along series of experiments concerning the skin-vision of;
animals, and has proven that certain
species hnving no visual organs proper
—such ns the earth-worm—are not
only able to distinguish between different quantities of light, but nlso manifest a decided preference for light of
certain colors.
Among the objects of the Swedish
Arctic expedition are the exploration
of the interior of Greenland, and a
search for remains of the Norsemen
whose settlements existed in that
country from about the year 1000 to
the end of the fourteenth century, and
of whose ultimate fate little or nothing
ii known. It is expected that the expedition will start in May. under tho
command of Baron Nordenksjold.
Excavations haVo been commenced
at Tel-ol-Mask huta, in Egypt, on the
supposed site of {Uauwcs, one of the
two cities specified in thu first chapter
of Exodus as built by the forced labor
of tho Hebrews. It is hoped that in-
siiptions may be discovered at this
plaee which will enable Egyptologists
to identify the Pharaoh of Moses, to
assign a dynastic date to the period
of the oppression, and to settle the
much-disputed question regarding the
route of the Exodus. Funds are being raised in England for prosecuting
thii important exploration.
Dr. William Thomson, of Molbourne,
shows by statistics '.that the mortality
from consumption ii increasing in Vie-*
toria, the deaths having been 11.49 to
eaeh 10,000 inhabitants in 1871 and
13.90 in 1881. He believes that the
disease was imported into the colony
from abroad, and contends tbat consumption is never induced by conditions of the atmosphere or soil, but ia
due to a specific'parasitic poison. Consumptives derive benefit from sea-voyages because they are constantly exposed to an atmosphere unfavorable to
the development of the parasites.
From three stations in northern Europe systematic observations and measurements of the aurora boroalis have
been made throughout the winter, and
one of tho observers at least—Prof.
Tromholt — confidently expects that
the comparison of tho results whieh
will soon be made will establish with
considerable exactneis the height a-
bove tho earth at whioh this phenomenon occurs, thus solving another perplexing problem of science Prof.
Tromholt has attempted several times
to photograph tho aurora, but lias
failed to got a traco of an image upon
evon the most soniitive plate*.
Tlio attention of sovoral observers
has been drawn to thu prevalence of
partial doafnoss among pupils in
schools. The researches of Dr. (Jollo,
who has had exoellont opportunities
for studying the ear in young persons
and who hns met with 1400 cases of
deafness among scholars, indicate that
tho hearing of twenty or twenty-five
por cent, of tho children is weakened
so far as to affect their understanding
of lessons. This infirmity has not
been understood, and tlio afflicted ones
appear dull and backward, whilo their
proper education suffers, To overcome ns far as possiblo the effects of
imperfect hearing, Dr. Gelle suggests:
that tho teacher should keep well in
sight and speak slowly and distinctly;
that school-rooms should be away from
disturbing sounds, while stoves or hot-
air currents should not be placed in
tho centre of classos; and that pupils
should be seated with reference to
thoir hearing power, the deafest boing
plpced nearest the teacher.

Satar-iUy Mornlnc, April 14. 1883.
The legislature are still wrestling
with the Kootenay bill, and it will
probably occupy their attention for
several days yet. We believe that
the amendments made have so transformed the bill that it will pass and
be recoived favorably by a large majority of the people. There is a
very wide difference between the
bill as it now stands and the bill as
first introduced.
We are very glad to observe that
the legislature have refused to amend
the municipal act so as to permit
grocers to sell liquor by the bottle,
The motion for amendment was introduced by Hon. Mr. Drake, at the
request of Mr. Orr, but the mover
himself voted against it when a division took place. We know of no
practice more pernicious than that
which permits people to take liquor
home from the grocery und drink it
in the presence of their children,
Another Defaulter!
One seldom takes up a newspaper
now-a-days without finding that
some person occupying a position of
. responsibility and trust has become
a defaulter. Bank managers, clerks,
cashiers, treasurers, and all persons
whose occupation brings them into
contact with large quantities of
money, nre doubtless sometimes
tempted to appropriate to their own
use some of the funds with which
they have been interested. The
growing frequency of these defalcations has produced a feeling of uneasiness and insecurity in commercial circles, and men have been asking themselves what remedy can be
applied. Men in responsible positions, as ageneral rule, well are paid.
Their salaries are more than sufficient
for ordinary expenses. But when
charged with defalcation, they frequently pot forward the excuse that
they found themselves unable to live
within their income. Such an excuse cannot be accepted either as a
justification or mitigation of dishonesty. If it could, the very foundations  of  all commercial   morality
* would be taken away. There are
no circumstances which will justify
, the man who steals. And it is not
the salary's fault that it falls short
of the .expenditure. A man who receives $2000 a year and spends $3000
must know that the day of reckoning and disgrace is not far distant;
and when he is forced to eat the bit
ter fruit he must remember that it
is the legitimate result of his own
doings. The danger which surrounds
many men in these times in that
fashion makes demands upon them
which they cannot satisfy without
dishonesty. When a man becomes
manager of a bank, or treasurer for
an important commercial concern, he
finds himself in a social position
which, if he maintains it, entails an
expenditure quite beyond his means.
There are only two courses open to
him: he may curtail his expenses
and take a step down in the social
grade, or he may steal enough to
cover the deficit. Most men have
moral strength and back bone enough
to sacrifice social position rather than
commit crime. Some have not, however, and they become defaulters and
moral wrecks. Society is a terrible
tyrant to those who give it their
allegiance. According to its code,
one might as well be out of tbe
world as out of fashion. But surely
the man who deliberately chooses
that path which must eventually
lead him to disgrace and ruin, for
the sake of a brief period of dissipa
tion, is a fool. All the safeguards
known to the commercial world are
not sufficient to ensure honesty in a
man whose moral susceptibility is
blunted, or who believes that self-
gratification and ambition should be
the chief aim of human life. This
age is greatly lacking in men who
can say "no," and stick to it—men
whose moral natures have been so
cultivated and developed that tempt
attae to dishonest acts are both
powerless and harmless.

New York, April 9.—The position of the
Chilians lu Peru Is full of peril. The
Kuerllla forces, if Indeed they are not to
e called the army of General Cooeres,
can no longer be regarded with Indifference by the Ghllllan garrlfjon of Lima.
New York, April ft. —A reporter snw
Schwab, Most and other sociallstH yesterday, Mehwtili exhibited a large roll of
manuscript, saying: "Here Is the manuscript of a manifesto tliat will be prlnled
and published In two weeks Ui nil Europe
setting forth In full what the united revolutionary parly proposes to do." An extract reads: "It becomes tho right and
duty of tho despoiled to recover their
natural Inheritance by every possible
moans."
London, April 7.—The Times In a loader
says: Tiie hirelings and fugitives who
come from Irish-American slums Ito use
tho dagger and dynamite, though not
directly hounded on, by Irish oratois, arc
encouraged by the absence of any honest
nttempt on the part of Irish lenders to denounce outrages that lmvo been committed and that are in contemplation.
London, April 8.—At a banquet of the
corporation of civil cnglncera,at Kensington, United States Minister Lowell replied
to tho toast, "Our Visitors." In course
of his remarks ho said: "Tho moro important policy of diplomacy Is to maintain
good humor, good will and good understanding between nations. There Is very
little dlfleronee between tho views of au
Englishman and an American, Though
I may venture lo allude to topics, I van
say that no American, any moro than an
Englishman, believes In ussass I nation, or
war with dynamite." Lowell's remarks
were received with cheers.
Ottawa,Ont., April B.—The government
has decided to deepen tho ehaunel of the
Nt. Lawrence between Montreal and Que-
bco to 21% ftf0'- now 25 feet, at a cost of a
million and a half dollars,
PiiiLADKLi'iiiA, April 8,— Herr Most
spoke al a meeting of workmen this afternoon In tlio German theatre. Ho advocated communism and said the tlinu was
ripe for a revolution, which, he thought,
would soon swoop over Europe and Amor-
leu. He declared the Czar would not bo
crowned, und approved the course of Irish
terrorists and dynamiters,
LiVKitrooi.. April 8,— In tho trial of
Doasy and Flanagan, yesterday, charged
with having in their possession Infernal
machines and explosives, witnesses deposed tlmt tho box Deusy had when arrested contained material for making explosives, and also a preparation of arsenic
aud dynamite and parts of an Infernal
muolilno,conslBtlngof apparatus by which
sulphuric acid could be allowed slowly to
soak through Into a mixture, the principal clement of which wus chloride of, potash. Ho explained that witli this coni-
hluatlon an explosion could be produced
within u maximum time of 40 minutes.
Thu machine was exactly similar In construction to tiiose used in Glasgow, and In
the attempt on the oftlec of the London
Time*, Tne polico were cross-exnmlncd,
but the evidence was not shaken hi any
respect. It was stated in the ovidonco tliat
the liguluu dynamite found with tlio prisoners was usimilar.compound to that contained lu the infernal machines used in
Liverpool in 1881. Doasy and Flanagan
were committed for trial at tlio assizes,
bail being refused. The prisoners reserved
defense,
London, April 8.—Klrton'was trying to
escape from London when arrested. From
papers found on the prisoner there is little
doubt that Kirlon was selected to commit
the actual deeds of destruction. On Kir-
ton's arraignment it-was proved that ho
eoiTes]iondcd with Gallagher, arrestee! ut
Lambeth, and delivered n letter addressed
to Gallagher, Friday, at Charing Cross
hotel. The police of Birmingham have
certain evidence that Whitehead and the
prisoners arrested in London were implicated In the recent outrages In London.
Thoy claim lo be able to show that Whitehead has been for many years one of the
principal Fenians In England. It is expected tliat he will be tried in Loudon
with the other prisoners. The police en-'
tertaln nodoubtthat Whitehead, Norman,
Gallagher, Wilson and O'Connor nre all
directly concerned tn the plot on a great
scale, probably aiming at a simultaneous
explosion In various ports of London. Itls
believed there that the arrests have baffled
the conspiracy for the present. The press
discuss tlio matter with coolness and good
sense. No human being doubt* that the
filot was Irish-American, and the connection of nearly every prisoner with America Is being clearly proved. Nothing that
could with propriety be called a panic
exists In the public mind here respecting
the discoveries of plots and dynamite factories, but great uneasiness Is folt In official quarters. There Is much surprise here
ut the fuot that all the plots wero carried
on by menus of monoy which Is openly
collected In the United States for the purpose, and remitted by well known agents
of the dynamite party In New York. That
these agents should he allowed to pursue
their operations without hindrance by the
Americans Is regarded as an unfriendly
act, Whicli the United Ntates would not
tolerate In Its own case from another nation. The Full Mull Oaxette points out
thut the bomb explodes every week In
Italy, and that France, Russia, Germany
and Austria are familiar with its sound,
und that no one can seethe direction of
popular tendencies across tho Atlantic
without seeing beforo long that dynamite
may bo commissioned against the millionaires of the United .States. The English people in general cannot view it in
this light, in tbelr unreasonable and
panic-stricken frame of mind, nnd are
convinced that Americans are, In a great
part, responsible for lt all.
London, April 9,—A letter from Michael
Davitt Is published to-day in which he
further expresses his opposition to the
dynamite policy on the part of tlie Irish,
lie declares such policy Is nn Insane Idea
und criminal. It Is rumored at Bow street
Eallce court to-day that four fresh arrests
ave been made lu connection with tho
recent dynamite disclosures. The Fall
Mall Gazette says there In town six prison-
era now confined at the Bow street station,
who wero concerned In the dynamite conspiracy. Charges will probably be preferred against them to-day.
Vienna, April 10.—Largo portions of tho
country In the southern part of Russia are
covered with water. Owing to Hoods in
the rivers traffic on railways Is suspended
temporarily.,.
Dublin, April 10.—It is stated that one
ot the Phoenix Park murderers will confess his guilt. It is supposed the mini referred to is Patrick Deiancy.
ST. Pktekhkuih), April 10.-The cxnr accompanied by the ci-arlna, visited the city
yesterday and pouted through tbe streets
In an open carriage. They were unaccompanied by an escort. The czar seemed unusually thoughtful and made scarcely
an response whatever to tho loyal salute
of the public,
Cork, April lo,—The recorder In opening the sessions took occasion to allude
to the almost unanimous opinion expressed by the American press lu condemnation of Irish outrages.
Yiknxa, April 10,-It Is hoped In political circles here that the Failed Stales
government will adopt legal measures for
suppressing Fcniiinlsm and dynamite
plots iu that country.
London, April 11.—Rernnrd Gallagher,
of dynamite notoriety, strongly urges Ills
American citizenship. He sent a lottor to
.tho United Mates Minister, praying tho
good offices of the American government,
and solemnly reiterating his Innocence.
Tho writing and spelling of tlie communication stamp him as a person of very Illiterate character.
ST. 1'ETKii.smmn, April 11.—Several officers of the Russian army will soon bo

whioh wore given Into the hands of the
Russian government by tho French authorities.

Mr. J. Creighton for the purposo of
considering tho Kootenay bill now boforo the legislature. Mr. John Barker was voted to tho chair, and Mr. F.
B. McDonald was appointed secretary.
Mr. Smytho first addressed the meeting. After making a full and impar-.
tial statement of tho terms of tho bill,
ho proceeded iu an able aud eloquent
manner to defend it. His arguments
were very forcible and convincing, and
when he sat down it Beamed as if nothing more remained to bo said. Mr.
McDonald noxt took the floor and in a
short and pithy speech urged that it
was the duty of the legislature to pass
tho bill without delay. The chairman

influence to secure tho passage of tho
bill. Several other persons spoko in

O'Connor In a Corner,
Hit Kuritlitrli'* Mii-Mr nly Timilrmt-'.
Tho man who represents himself ta
Thomas O'Connor, •'nnd who was nr-
rosturi Inst week nnd hold on suspicion
of having committed tho burglary in
Mr. Dickinson's shop on the 23rd ult.,
camo up before the police magistrate
for examination last Thursday. Ho
hnd been remanded until Saturday,
but in the moantime fresh ovidonco
had come to light and the crown do-
oided to have his case disposed of without delay. In addition tn tho polioo
magistrate, Mr. W. D. Ferris, J. P.,
aat on the bench. Mr. McColl appeared for tho prosecution. Tho prisoner
was not defonded. Evidence was given
by Mr. Dickinson, who lost the money,
Messrs. Frnnk Smith nnd John An-
drozojewski, who are employed in Mr.
Dickinson's shop, Messrs, Insley, und
Austin, proprietors of tho Colonial and
Occident hotels, Mr. P. Grant, of the Colonial, Const able Wiggins, and Mr. Wm.
Moresby, gaoler. Wo hnve already
published tho facta relating to tho
burglary, nnd shall briefly mention tho
circumstances which led to the arrest.
It will be remembered thnt Mr Dick-
inaon's safe koys wero tnkon out of his
trowsors pocket, tho front door of his
shop wns forced open, tho safe unlocked and over 9200 tnkon.   Mr. Dickin
son remembered that there was a $100
note of the Bank of British Columbia
in the safe,, a gold dollar, a $5 gold
piece, and n large quantity of small
silver, and ft cheque for $82.90 made
by VnnVolkenburg & Co. in favor of
Jas, Wise, and endorsed. Part'of the
silver was in a common shot bng. Tho
prisoner first turned up at the Occident
hotel, where he registered us Tom
O'Connor, and stayed from the 9th
Mareh till the 3rd April, It seems
that he hnd not at that time a surplus
of funds; indeed lie was really hard
up. On the 3rd he left the Occident
nnd took room 35 at the Colonial, paying §10 in advance. On the 6th Constable Wiggins arrested him on a
charge of having unlawful weapons.
He was taken to gaol and then the constable, in company with Messrs. Insley and Itoxbury, mnde a search in
tho room he had occupied. They found
the door looked nnd could not nnd the
key. After gaining admission they
found the wardrobe alao locked, and
no key. One of the party happened
to feel on top of the wardrobe and
found a skeleton key with which the
door wus opened. Inside the*.found
a valise. They opened the value and
found therein a lot of skeleton keys
and other burglar's implements, a revolver, large bowie knife in a sheath,
2 boxes of pistol cartridges, a belt full
of rifle cartridges, and some other articles. Thoy nlso found in the room a
gin ease containing seven'or eight
boxes of valuable cigars, which Mr.
Insley believes ,vero stolon from hiin.
Mr. Austin, of tho Occident, testified
that on the 6th his daughter found iu
a room adjoining the one O'Connor
had occupied at his house, a common
shot bag with a bunch of keys in it.
The keys had a metal tag bearing Mr.
Dickinson's name, nnd were identified
by Mr. Dickinson ns the ones stolen
from his pocket. The bag containing
tho koys was similar to the one in
which Mr. Dickinson had kept money
in his safe. It wns found above the
window nt the Occident, in a room
which had not been occupied during
the prisoner's stay at that hotel. In
the same room wns found a box of
putty on which there wero the impressions of 4 keys which exactly corresponded to 4 of the keys in Mr.
Dickinson's bunch. Mr. Moresby testified concerning tho money found on
tho prisoner when brought to tho gaol.
Among it waB a gold dollar, a $6 gold
piece, nnd a quantity of small silver.
On Wednesday Mr. Moresby mnde a
further eonrch of the prisoner's vnliso,
nud found in the pocket of"a pair of
trousers a Bank of B. C. $100 note,
similar to the one lost by Mr. Dickinson. On Thursday Constable Wigginn
searched the valise again nnd found
the cheque taken from Mr. Dickinson's
safe. It was inside the lining of tht'
valise. In nn outside pocket he found
n pair of leg irons. Theso nre all the
facts connected with the enso, nnd the
police magistrate considered thom suf
noient to commit prisoner for trial. The
prisoner made no defense, and declined
to question the witnesses. He sec ir 1
to take the whole matter very t^oplly.
It mny be remarked thnt shortly i.ftp*
the burglary he spent money v1-*-0
freely, whereas he had none to spend
previously. It is reported that he
changed money both' here and at Port
Moody. The. weapons, found in his
valise seem to indicate that he was
fully prepared for action iu caso of
emergency. The revolt «"■ ~ a very
fine one, nickel-pl. bowie
knife or dirk hnd n bi..uo > out ten
inches long, polished and sharp. What
he enrried the bolt of rifle cartridges
and the leg irons for still remains n
mystery. ^^^^^^^^^^
PROVINCIAL JLEGISLATURE.
FIRST SESSION OF THE FOURTH PARLIAMENT.
MONDAY.
On motion of Mr. Allen, i committee wns appointed to enquire into the
management of the Royal Honital at
Victoria.
Mr. Allen moved thnt a sum of
money be placed in ths estimates to
purchase a number of cr-pies of the
British Columbia Director) for circulation outside the province Tiio mo>
tion was ruled out of order.
Mr.  McTnvish proposed  that  the
Iiroducta of tho province should be
;ept on exhibition for the information
of strangers,—Hon. Mr. Robson approved of the suggestion. Ho hnd a
samplo of wheat raised in, Cariboo,
1600 feot above sea level, and it was
the first specimen deposited in tho department of agriculture. If an office
of that kind wero established, he believed it would do much good. In establishing a bureau of immigration, the
government had taken care that an
immigrant ngent should be plncod in
communication with agriculturists nnd
others hnving specimens which they
wero willing to place on exhibition.
Duplicates of theso specimens could be
sont to Ottawa, whore thoy would form
a most interesting exhibition. At the
Paris exhibition, British Columbia
grain took first prizes. It would bo
the stonily aim of tho department to
entry out tlio principles of tho address,
and tho houso wns indebted to the
mover for bringing forward another
practical motion.— Mr. Orr snid that,
instead of thoro being ono duplicnto
sample, thoro should bo triplicate samples, nnd thnt ono set should bo deposited nt Now Westminster, where
thore wns the largest area of cultivable
land in the provinco, Tho mainland
should not be forgotten, It would bo
an excellent thing to Bond the specimens to tho agricultural show to be
held ut New Westminster next fall.—
Hon, Mr. Robson snid thnt thnt idea
would bo enrried out,---Mr. Somlin
snid that Yale hnd tnkon tho prize for
oats at the Centennial Exhibition,—
Sov oral members mentioned facta illustrating the extreme productiveness of
the districts they represented. Mr.
John snid Saanich wheat took first
prize at the Centennial exhibition; Mr.
McLeesc said it was Chilcoatin wheat
that took the Centenninl prizo; Mr.
Grant reforrod to tho immense potatoes nnd fine wheat grown in his constituency ; Mr. Allen clniniod for
Lillooot a 14-pound beet; Hon. Mr.
Robson said he had aoen a good many
New Westminster bents that weighed
100 pounds; Mr. MoTavish snid Saanich
rivaled Lillooot in tho production of
moloiiB, grapes nnd tomatoes; Mr.
Raybould clniniod for  Nanaimo  the
biggest-turnips und finest coal on the
coast; Hon. Mr. Smithe spoke up for
Cowichau, nud said he himself held an
honorary certificate for grain sont to
Paris.
TUESDAY.
Iii reply to Mr. Orr, Hon. Mr.
Smithe said that the government were
not prepared this session to submit a
scheme for dyking the Fraser valley
lands. They thoroughly appreciated
tho importance of. thet work, but ar
tliese lands were withib the railway
belt it was the duty of the Dominion
government to deal with them, aud he
promised to bring the matter before
tho Ottawa authorities.
A long debate took place on the Sumas dyking scheme, which was considerably amended.

Maple Kldge Licenses.
Editor Columbian.-—In an artiele
which lately appeared in tho Columbian references were made to the liquor licenses granted at Maple Ridge.
Insinuations were made regarding the
houses in which liquor is now sold and
the legality of the court which granted
the licenses. It hns boen assented tlint
the hotels in question are merely
saloons erected for tho purpose"f6t
making money out of tlie railway employees. The writer of thd artiele in
question is evidently a good lawyer.
He undertakes at this late hour to interpret the 152nd clause of the municipal act, and states in his interpretation thnt tho licensing court held hdte
was not legally constituted because
Mr. Campbell from Sumas sat on the
bench. If tho writer had done his
duty he should havu enlightened the
people long ere now on this important
legal point. Now then our court has
hitherto been constituted similarly nnd
no objections have been raind aa to
the point of legality, and if fnere is
no other good to accrue from the granting of the Maple Ridgo licenses than
the settling of the constitutions of licensing courts the deliberations of the
Magistrate here have not been in vain.;
As to tho house termed nil old stable
fitted up to secure a liquor license, it
is only sufficient to say that it is a first
class house in ovory respect. The
travelling public havu already, testified to the nccommodations there received, and the necessity of such n
house is acknowledged by all. Visitors and travellers now coming to Maple
Ridgo aro not submitted to suoh inconveniences as formerly. Instances
are known of Mr. Ross' hotel being bo
orowdod that Mr. Ross was driven to
tho unpleasant alternative of turning
strangers away from his house for lack
of accommodation. There are now
four licensed hotels at Maple Ridge
and Port Haney. There is no intoxicating liquors sold on Sunday and the
houses as far as can bo learned givo
satisfaction. It is evident to every
one living hero that loss whiskey is
now drunk at Maplo Ridge than last
winter when thoro wns only ono hotel
in the settlement. It is nlso evident
thnt tho accommodations for travellers is all that can be desired- Thinking you for encroaching so much on
your space.
Hknhy Dawjon.
[With reforonce to tho above wo
shall just remark that if a previous
license court did an illegal act, that
does not excuse the one ovor which
Mr, Dawson presided. Tho act is certainly plain enough. It is quite possible moro accommodation might have'
been required at Maplo Ridgo, but
certainly there was no need to grant
any moro liquor licenses. Does Mr.
Dawson think that a boarding house
oould not be ononed unless it Imd liberty to soil whiskey? We have iio
means of knowing whether there is
lesB or more whiskey drunk there now
than there was last winter; but Maple
Ridge must be unlike any other place
wo have yet heard from if the multiplication of drinking places does not
increase the amount of drinking. It
ia contrary to nll experience. If it is
n f.iot, then wo nre prepnred to advocate tho granting of a license to every
applicant throughout tho country. But
we cannot believe that Mr. Dawson is
really sincere in his statement.—Ed.]

Meteors at Sea.
"According to the Panama Star and
Herald, two vessels have narrowly
escaped destruction by meteors. One
was tho steamship Lima of the
Pacific Steam Navigation company,
iind thp other was tho United States
man-of-war Alaska. A meteor which
plunged into the ocean close by the
jast named ship, just after sunset on
December 12th, is said to havo terrified everybody on board by exploding
with a great noieo and a burst of flame
just before it struck the water. This
is not the first time that meteors havo
fallen near ships, and there is nothing
Impossible in the suggestion that
vessels may have been sunk by them.
Meteoric, stones hnve fallen on land
which Mete heavy enough, and endowed with sufficient velocity to
knock a hole through any ship.
Within the last forty years more than
twenty vessels have disappeared at
sea. How many of them may possibly have been struck and sunk by one
of these flying missiles from the shy,
some of whioh follow in flocks in the
tracks of enmets, while others are lone
wanders in space until they fall within
the earth's attraction, and plunge
through her atmosphere with planetary
speed.
Rkmarkabus and "True. — Alomso
Howe, of Tweed, was cured of a fever
sore of thirty-five years' duration, by six
IwtjfrB of Hurriock Blood Bitters. He
had Buffered terribly, and tried many
remedies in vain. He considers Burdock
Blood Bitters a marvellous medicine,
Daughters, Wives, Mothers, look te
your health! The many painful and
weakening diseases from whicli you suffer, dispniriiig of a cure, can. be remedied
by that unfailing regulator and unfailing
tonic — Burdock Blood Bitters. Ask
your Druggist for proof.
The worst Scrofulous Sores, the most
indolent Tumor, and the most foul Ulcer
known, may he cured by the combined
use of Burdock Bitters and Burdock

for tliese infallible remedies.

has taken Burdock Blood Bitten with
great benefit in a lingering complaint,
and adds that he would gladly recommend it to all. ,.

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER XXXII.
(Continued.) .
As a result of this conversation,
when Ronald was informed on Monday, about ten o'clock, that Jenkins
was waiting to boo him, he stepped
across to Harris' quarters, und the two
entered the room together where Jenkins was drumming restlessly on the
window. He turned round sharply
as the door opened, nnd in answer to
Harris' salutation intimated that he
came to aee Mr. Bennett.
"Mr. Harris, is welcome to hear all
that passes between us, Mr. Jenkins,"
said Ronald.
"Oh, he's your witness, is hoi That'.
the way you take advantage of me. I
might have brought one too—the conductor that law you go, for instance.
However, if you don't mind listeners,
I needn't care either. So, sir, just you
tell me where my wife is!"
"I do not know."
"You don't know!" cried Jenkins,
and ho burst into a coarse laugh.
"I i repeat that I do not know,
and—"
"Come, you drop that!" said Jenkins, springing up and shaking his fist
in Ronald's face, while he poured forth
a torrent of abuse and rage.
Ronald never moved or attempted
to reply, but after a minute Harris
went round and touched tho angry
man on the arm.
"Did you come here simply to abuse
Mr. Bennett, or to find your wife,
Jenkins 1" said he, very quietly.
"You'd stand a better chance if you
would allow him to tell you all he
can,"
"All he can? What do you mean?'1
asked Jenkins, taken aback by the
tone adopted toward him. For the
first time the idea of some accident
crossed hi. mind.
"If you will sit down and allow Mr.
Bennett to explain—" said Harris,
persuasively, and the riding-master
took the chair he offered.
Ronald then made his statement,
quietly and briefly, but omitting nothing, and explained to the astonished
Jenkins, Ellen's determination to become a nurse.
"And you expect me to swallow all
that?" remarked Jenkins, when ho had
ended.
"I cannot make you believe it, but
it is all I can tell you. There is the
address to which I took her, and you
must continue your search in town
from there."
"Well, this is a queer business. You
mean to tell me that you're giving me
the address that's to set me on the
traok to find her!"
"I told Mra. Jenkins that I could,
under no circumstances, conceal what
I had done. I alio told her that I did
not wish to know her whereabouts, as
I ahould not think myself bound to aid
you farther than waa necessary to clear
her from any shadow of blame which
might attach to her on my account."
"Well, I'm jiggered!" remarked Mr.
Jenkins, and got up and paced the
little room. "And if you're so mighty
honest and innocent, what mado you
help her leave me? That wasn't such a
virtuous action, I should say."
Ronald rose, and looked the riding-
master steadily in the face.
"I helped her for two reasons: I
remember her a pretty, bright-faced,
happy girl, and found her—what you
know. The contrast mode me pity
hor. That was one reason; and as for
the other," continued Ronald, with
the first tone of anger and scorn that
had appeared in his voice, "I'm not
sure that I wouldn't help any woman
to run away whose husband leaves
such a mark on her arm as I saw on
your wife's on Tuesday."
"And I'll second you, Bennett,"
said Harris, coolly.
Jenkinsglancedat the two gentlemen,
and a dull red flush of shame rose to
his brow. He looked like a beaten
hound as he stood silent before them.
Presently, with an effort at defiance,
he pointed to the address—"Will you
undertake to come to that place with
me? It may he a hoax, for all I
know."
"Certainly; there's a train in half an
hour," replied Ronald—"I will meet
you at the station."
"And no telegraphing or tricks beforo then ?"
"Jenkins, you are a fool!" said Harris, emphatically. "Can't you aee that
Mr. Bennett is about as likely to trick
you as you are to—to—"i ,
"To believe him," said Jenkins, with
another laugh,
"No, that won't do, for you'll have
lo believe him before you've done with
him," replied Harris, so confidently
that Jenkins could only stare in mute
surprise,
Arrived at the lodgings, to which
they went perforce in a cab together,
though they had travelled up in separate compartments, Ronald asked to
see the landlady, who recognized him
in a moment, as his companion observed.
"You remember me 1" he said.
"Yes, sir; you brought a lady here
last Wednesday morning. The lady's
left, sir.   Did you want rooms?"
"No, thanks; all I want is, that you
should, if you will be so kind, tell this
gentleman what passed on that morning, and anything ynu can about the
"I'll do that, sir. The lady was expecting some one to come after her.
She was worn out, sir, and cried like
u if her heart would break; and I was
trying to oheor her, sir, as I told you
I would, and I raw her poor arm, sir,"
—here the good woman bestowed an
angry look on Jenkins, " 'Some coward must have hurt you,' ssys I, 'and
whoever did that deserves to go to
jail for it;' and then she told nle a deal,
sir, about you, and how you'd beeu
a real gentlemen and helped her, and
how she was afraid—and she shook as
she said it—that she'd be'found out
and forced to go back to that brute of
* husband, sir; and uy. I, 'You keep
quiet, and don't tell ms one word of
where you're going;, aiul then though
they put me in the witnas-box they
couldn't get anything from mo;' and
she seye "Yes;' and alter two days she
went mray. •W; took her box, and she
looked quite bright and pretty, and
Bays she, 'It's all right—I've got work
now." She kissed me, the poor dear,
and thanked me—and very glad I was,
sir, to aee her safe away, and hope
Bhe'U keep safe."
"Do you want to know anything
more?" said Ronald, when the garrulous landlady paused.
"No," answered Jenkins, with a
smothered oath—"I'm beat!" and he
stood twisting his mustache, his eyes
fized on the floor, and Ronald fancied,
something like compunction working
in bis face.
"You say she wanted to get worksite was afraid of going back ?'' he said,
abruptly.
"Her hope and prayer—yes, sir, hor
prayer every blessed night of her life
was, that she might be. lot alone to
work for her living, wherever she's
gono."
"Then—she shall do it!" exclaimed
Jenkins, and hastily left the house,
Ronald following, after he had given
the landlady a farther acknowledgment
for her kindness to poor Ellen.
Tho street was almost empty, and
Jenkins stood an instant meditating
on all that had occurred.
"Suppose she hadn't found work?
I suppose she's in one of those hos-
Iiitnls where nurses got diplomas —lots
ot's of soldiers' wives do it. Were you
going to leavo her to fight her way in
this big town ? I'm ready to take your
word now," said ho.
"I told hor in that caso, and tn that
case only, to write to me."
"Oh, you did? And what would
your next movo have been ?"
"I should have secured those rooms
for her, and have written her whole
history to a lady in Scotland, who
oould, I have no doubt, have assisted
her."
"By George, that woman was right!
I believe you aro a gentleman—and
I've made a mistake. Well, I'll leave
Ellen alone. I've not used her over-
well, I allow, and she mny as well
havo her way. I'd like to say so if I
could find her."
"Do you not mean to search for
her ?"
"No; I've neither time nor money
to hunt all London after her; and if
she's to go , I'd better keep out of her
way. Now, then, Mr. Bennett, will
you let by-gones bo by-gones 1 I'm—
yos—I'm sorry I went to that manso."
"Appearance are all against me, Mr.
Jenkins—I know that. I am glad you
acquit me of blame, and am quite willing to sny no more about it.
"Will you shako hands ?" said Jenkins, tendering a broad, red paw,
which Ronald took, though not over-
willingly, for it had inflicted that black
bruise on Ellon's arm.
"You spoke of an anonymous letter
you had received; did you identify tho
writer ?" he asked.
"No, I didn't; and upon iny cml,
now that I've seen you, I don't know
what to make of it. However, that's
my secret."
"Of course. Wall, good morning;
I must return to Sandhurst at once."
"Good-bye, then. I'll go North tomorrow. As I am here I may as well
enjoy al! the day at my old quarters,
10 Cheyne Street, Strand. Capital
rooms there. I'll go and see the
'Masked Ball' to-night.   Seen it yet?"
"No, I have not.
"And you ate close to town! I've a
friend playing in it; 'plays the count,
nnd does it well, too. I'll get an order from him—oould get you one if
you liked."
"Many thanks, but I roally have
not time.   Good-morning."
So, with a show of oivility, theso
two separated, each secretly relieved
that the interview that threatened to
be so stormy had passed off so quietly.
CHAPTER XXXIII.
THE  "z" THICK.
■ Ronald's troubles, however, were by
no means at an end, for on his arrival
at Sandhurst, Harris, with a some-
what uneasy countenance, met him.
"Well, how did it end?"
"Quite amicably," said Ronald;
"and the fellow wanted to take mo to
the theatre, by way of reward for saving his wife. However, we ought not
to be hard on him, for he did show
some signs of contrition, and he's
agreed to let Ellen alone for the
future. I hope he'll stick to that resolve."
"Well, my dear fellow, I'm sorry
there's something unpleasant in today's paper. I opened it; and if tho
post had been ten minutes earlier I'd
have run to the station, that you might
have tried to get something out of
Jenkins about it," replied Harris,
handing him the Scotch paper with
the copied paragraph from Chit-clutt.
Ho expected Ronald to express vexation on its perusal, but he was not
prepared for the sudden change that
swept over his face and left it of an
ashy paleness.
"Halloo, old man! Don't let that
infernal stuff upset you so. What's
the matter?" he asked, anxiously.
"I can't tell. It's impossible, -it
must be impossible," stammered Ronald, looking again at the paper, as if
to find some information there, "Harris, either this is a lie, for which some
one shall be punished, or—or—I'll
never put faith in man or woman
again!"
"But, iny doar fellow, do explain it
who is "Z'?''
"There is only one lady near my
home who has known mo long dr well,
and this impudent paper must bo
aware of the fact; but that she should
turn against me in that way—let me
see—the writer of the anonymous letter. Oh, I can't believe it—it's impossible! Bhe may blame me, but she
wouldn't soil her hands in that
fashion."
"Do you mind telling me who she
is?"
Ronald hesitated a moment before
replying. "Half-confidences are no
uso, and I need your help now in
earnest. This is more serious than a
dozen Jenkinses, You remember hearing of Mrs. Leslie 1"
"Sir Duncan Forbes' daughter-
yes."
"She is the lady I mean, and the
kindest friend man ever hal.
"She! My dear Bennett, dismiss all
fears ftoin your mind.   She has had
nothing to do with this."
