One Phase of the Evil.
The Chinese evil hu many phases,
of khich the ■■e^ple/of thia oouritfy;
are! w»ll »«*»»; >CI)inese1j's*e>"Jleiy
m«oh Van rateable than Indians aa
citizens. They bring with them
nothing but rice, end they buy
scarcely auything during their stay.
Their morals ara corrupt, their religion is heathenish, and their habits
are filthy. In saying this of Chinese, we do not juqludo the whole
race. There are several of these
people in this country whose character and conduct would compare very
favorably with those of white men,
and whose business habits and dt
tainments nre worthy of admiration.
But ns a rule they are a very undesirable class of citizens, end the
lower orders are, detestible. A cose
which hti created a good deal pf
sensation in California recently came
before the publio in San Francisco,
and it illustrates a phase of the Chinese evil which hai a great deal of
interest for the people of British
Columbia. A young girl named
Sarah Isabella Burke, residing at
Santa Cruz, was enticed into the den
of Wong Stiey, taught' to take
opium, and became so enamoured of
the Celestial that she refused to
leave him. The Chinaman professed
to reciprocate the unnatural affection, and the father of Sarah could
not persuade her to return to the
paternal roof. She had always been
looked upon as a decent and sensible
' girl, but Wong and his opiuin seem
to have made her a slave. The father
applied to the Commissioners of Insanity to gain possession of his
daunt*-;, | but:'' the commissioners
coula dd nothing.' Commenting on
this case the San "Francisco Bulletin
says:
One of the worst vices introduced
by Chinese into this city has been the
opium debauch. It is the most seductive of all vices. From the moment of
the first whiff of opium the victim is
infatuated. Life is a sort of false
dream. Nothing is real. The victim
floats along, or is lifted from the
ground, on on atmosphere which intoxicates the senses. Whoever smokes
opium is partially insane. There is
an abnormal condition. Sarah Burke
loves'an ill-favored Chinaman. Does
any em suppose that a decent girl, in
a normal Condition, could make such
an alliance, f She is infatuated with a
repulsive Chinaman, and consents to
become hia-mistress, . He appears to
have' become infatuated with the.
woman. He is probably an opium
smoker. Here are two miserable
beings, one Caucasian and one Mongolian, who have sunk below tho level
of decency through one of the most'
insidious vices whioh has ever cursed
the world. That vice was introduced
by Asiatics who make opium dens and
seduce young men and women into
them and ruin them by hundreds, if
not thousands. Sarah Burke is ruined.
She wu ruined from the hour she
went into one of these dens. She may
be set, down u utterly, lost. But this
young woman presents a representative
case. It is one in a thousand of the
cases of debauchery whioh have occurred through the influence of opium
dens In this city. This one instance of
the debauchery of a white girl through
the devilish arts of the opium dens,
causes a shudder to run through tho
community. But it is not the only
instance. There are many more where
tho infamy, if possible, is still greater.
Young men and young women Ire*
quent Chinese opium dons. Every
one of these is ruined. Not even the
police know how great is the number.
They only know that there are a groat
number of instances. What have the
Chinese done for San Franoisco? They
have brought the lottery, the opium
den and the leprosy. Is it any wonder
•that i the white population becomes
restive and complaining under suoh inflictions! Heaven knows that tho
white population hu vices enough.
But these added vices are moro than
the people can aland,"
In our own eity facts have come
to light'which lead to the suspicion
that Ihe Chinninen of British Columbia can be. as base and disgusting ns
the Chinamen of San Franoisco. In
somo of the dens on Front street
thero have beon exhibitions of de
linuohery the details of which would
horrify the whole community. Lot
these people tako warning before
popular indignation reaches that
point which would be dangerous to
them.   If they propose to remain in
l • omitted community lhey must'
mend their ways or suffer tliu con-
eequonoen

The Steam Few.
It will' lie observed that the oity
council, at tie meeting on Monday
night, passed two resolutions bearing
upon two very important questions.
The one relates to the ferry, and the
other to the agricultural building
and emigrant shed. It seems that
there were no available tenders sent
in {or the steam ferry. Last year
we were informed that some persons
were ready and anxious to establish
a ferry, but the then government
could not- be induced to ask for tenders. When tenders were finally
asked, the scheme was put in such a
shape that no person could accept it.
Now, when proposals are asked ou a
feasible basis, those who would have
tendered last .year ara otherwise engaged, and the whole business falls
through, Under these circumstances
it has been suggested that the muni
cipalities themselves should take the
matter up. The communities lying
beyond the river, and on the delta,
are really tha most interested in this
scheme, and there should be some
plan devised which will secure the
establishment of an enterprise so
much needed. We hope the municipalities will aot energetically, and
we believe they will be liberally met
by the city council.
The Sixth of May.
Arrangements are now being completed for viewing the great solar
eclipse whieh occurs on the 6th of
next month, It ie already known
to most of our readers that the track
of the total eclipse lies through the
South Pacific Ocean, and that there
are only two small islands from
whioh it may be viewed to advantage. Tliese are Caroline Island and
Flint Island, One is inhabited by
a few natives and the. other is destitute of inhabitants, Towards these
remote and'isolated regions three
scientific parties we now on thoir
way. The largest expendition goes
froin the United States, and embraces six persons. From Great
Britain two are sent, and France has
also an expedition under direction
of the eminent scientist M. Jannsen.
These men expect to arrive at the
scene of their observations to-day,
and will immediately begin preparations for observing the eclipse. At
Caroline 'Island the total plrazc of
the eclipse lasts 5 rain, and 20 sea,
whereas it will continue 5 min. and
33 sec. at Flint Island. It is very
rarely that' such an opportunity is
presented for studying the. sun and
its surroundings during an eclipse,
and the scientific world will await
the report of the expeditions-with a
good deal of expectancy. The average time of a total eclipse is about 2
minutes, and the greatest possible
duration under any circumstances
cannot reach 6 minutes.
A Dismal Picture.
While fertile regions throughout
the vast expanse of this continent,
nnd in many other quarters of the
globe, cry out for population for the
development of latent resources and
utilizing nature's bountiful gifts, there
are millions of industrious people in
i'limpc living in hopeless poverty
nml dirt. Every person who reads
the newspapers knows bow many
miserable people in unhappy Ireland
me vainly striving to exist upon
small patches of land utterly insufficient to yield the necessaries of
life. But Ireland does not suffer
alone from the pangs of hunger and
the blight of- poverty. The New
York Tribune throws some light
upon a phase of human existence in
"inerrie old England" which is
scarcely less worthy of sympathy
than those which roach us from the
Emerald hies. In that dismal region
lying neat the great manufacturing
town of Birmingham, only sevon
miles distant, there are said to be
about 24,000 people engaged in the
monotonous work of making nails
and rivets by hand. The work is
done in smair smithies attached to
the hovels which these poor crea
turea call their homes, Au expert
nail Soaker*, working long hours,
earns |4 a vroek, from whieh haa to
be dediicMd something for the use
of tools and the carriage of materials.
Mr. Porter, one of tlie. tariff commissioners, gives a sample case from
which the condition of these 24,000
people may fairly be judged. The
father, by uninterrupted labor, earns
$4 a week; the mother, by devoting
to the same work every moment Bhe
can spate, makes 74 cts.; the daughter, say 12 years of age, hammers
out 39 cts. The total weekly earnings of these three hard-working
people teaches only $5.13. From
this is deducted, for various materials and charges, 36 cts., leaving for
the net family earnings the magnificent sum of $4.77. It is scarcely
necessary to add that poverty and
wretchedness and dirt are tho most
prominent' characteristics of such a
community. Education is a luxury
almost unknown, and from year to
year, and from century to century
these miserable creatures toil on
helplessly and hopelessly, never looking for anything but death to give
them rest It is said that nail and
rivet making by hand has been carried- on there aftor the same fashion
for u century, and that the rudest
implements continue to be employed
in the work. Surely, if some means
could be devised to bring a few thousand of these people to this country,
the enterprise would be one of the
greatest philanthropy. No man in
British Columbia need fall short of
$12 in his weekly earnings, and the
industrious and ingenious may make
doublo that sum. We do not particularly want nail-makers, but we
want bone and sinew to assist in
developing and building up this
magnificent western province whose
climate and resources are unsur
passed.

Nrw Orleans, April 17.—The Metropolitan bank was robbed yesterday morning by professional burglars. Altogether
the burglars secured only two thousand
dollars of the bank's money all in silver,
but in the boxes of the depositors they
reaped a rich harvest. Tile exact sum is
unknown, and will uot be known until
each depositor has been interviewed.
There were fifteen boxes in the bank, all
of whieh were ransacked. Many can*
tained large sums of money, One, owned
by a fruit dealer, Is reported to have
contained 830,000 in cash and 82,000
worth of diamonds. Others are known
to have held sums of $5,000 and $1,000.
The loss is estimated at from 800,000 to
$200,000, and will probably be midway
between the two sums.
London, April 17.—A court circular
contains the following, written bythe
Queen herself: We have to record the
death of Mr. Brown, the Queen's personal attendant, whieh took place at Windsor at half-past 11 o'clock Tuesday, the
17th, of erysipelas. The event has
caused tbo deepest regret to the Queen,
the royal family and all members of tbe
royal household. To Her Majesty the
loss is irreparable, and the loss of her
true, faithful, devoted sen-ant was a
Sievous shock to the Queen. In 1849
r. John Brown entered the Queen's
sen-ice as one of the Queen's gillies, and
by his careful attention, steadiness and
intelligence, rose in 1858 to the position
of personal servant. In 1864 it was extended to that of constant personal attendant on Her Majesty on all occasions.
During 18 years and a half he served Her
Majesty faithfully, and never absented
himself from his duty for a single day.
He has accompanied the Queen in her
daily walks and drives, and all her journeys and expeditions, as well as personally waiting on her at banquets, etc.
The honest, faithful, devoted follower,
the trustworthy, discreet and straightforward man, was possessed of strong
sense. He filled a position of great and
anxious responsibilities, tbe duties of
which were performed with suoh constantly increased care, as to secure for
himself the friendship of the Queen.
St. Loom, April 17.—Tlio Oldie-Democrat says the proposed ship railway
across the Tohantepec has not been abandoned, as many suppose. The projector
has returned, and from him it was learned
this work was being vigorously prosecuted, and that the massive railroad will
be finished before De Lessens' canal.
Six weeks ago a syndicate was formed
for the purpose of beginning work and
making additional surveys to see if the
route selected could be improved. There
are parties ol engineers already in the
field, and a large force of engineers and
mechanics is engaged in tho construe*
tion in the neighborhood of Minatillati,
on Coatsacoalcal river, which lias been
selected as the northern terminus of the
way. The survey of the northern
terminal section has ueen filed with tho
government of Mexico who has appointed
one of its most able engineers to be associated with tho work, in accordance
with the terms of the concessions. He
is now at Santa Cruz, on tho Pacific,
and has been ordered to repair to Miua-
Milan. E. I.. Corthell, who was Capt.
Eads' chief engineer in the construction
of the Mississippi river jetties, is the
chief engineer. Col. Joseph Andrews,
who built the jetties, and the Hon. A. J.
Cochran, Capt. Eads' attorney, have
been in London the past thirty days, to
complete arrangements for the advancement of the project. It really will be
constructed to carry ships and cargoes of
the gross weight of 50,000 tons, which
will accommodate 80 per cent, of tho
tonnage of the world. In speaking of
prospects for completing the road, Etuis
said he liad no doubt of tho work being
finished aud the line open for traffic be.

Mhwaukkb, April 18.—(loo. Schiller,
accused of setting fire to the Newhall
House on the morning of January 10th
last, was today acquitted by the jury.
Five ballots were taken, and only one
juror was for conviction all that time,
and ho finally gave in because Judge
Mallory instructed that if I'.ere was any
doubt In bis mind he must give tlie prisoner tho benefit. The Court room ro-
ecboed with cheers when the verdict was
announced.

years 1882-83 there hns been a lurse Increaso over previous yonre of patients admitted to the institution. This, with the
delnpldntcd statt* of the building, uecowtl-

notice In the Treasurer's report that over
8600 has been expended on repnlrn,ovcr
$101) on furniture, and £83.43 on clothing,
muklng u total of about S7WI, which hnd to
bo deducted from over receipts, which can
not. bo counted In the actual expense.** of
the Institution. A large number of pa-
dents have bejjii admitted, sent from the
Hallway works nbout Yule, and no cont rl-
liutioiis have been received from the Dominion Government or the railway contractors towards tho support of this large
and increasing class of patients.
In conclusion, wc have to reiterate the
coniplulntso frequently mnde by our official predecessors ns to the necessity of
establishing a "Home for Incurables,''nnd
renovating If not entirely reconstructing
tho Hospital building. The necessity of
an Increased grant Is a self-evident proposition. If the Hospital Is to take Its i-ropcr

Still Another. — The last mail
brought iis n letter from iv gentleman
now residing in Port Hope, formerly n
resident of British Columbia. Among
other things he says: "I am glad to
inform you that a uot inconsidornblo
number of persons from this placo and
its neighborhood have fully mado up

Anniversary Services.—On Sunday evening last Bishop Oridge, of the
Reformed Episcopal Church, Victoria,
conducted divine service in tho Presbyterian Church in this city, being
anniversary service commemorative of
the organization of the congregation
twenty-one years* ago. Tho Bishop
preached a most excellent sermon to a
crowded congregation. His concluding remarks reviewing the post 21
yoars locally aud generally, were very
solemn and appropriate. There was a
peculiar fitness in securing tlie venerable Bishop's valuable services for
the occasion, ns next to himself Mr.
Jamieson hns ministered to tho snme
congregation for. a much longer period,
than any other clergyman iu the province.

Concert at Granville.—The Choral Union concert at Granville last
Monday night was a complete success,
and the singers speak in glowing terms
of ' tho kindness - and attention they
received from the people of the inlet.
There wns a large audience, who fre-
Suently manifested their appreciation
uring the progress of the entertainment. The singers generally were in
good trim. The "Last Chord" by
Mrs. Sillitoe, "It waa a Dream," by
Mrs. Moresby, the trio "Aeolian
Lyre," nnd quartette "Blow in the
Eastern," wore especially good. The
proceeds, which go to the society's organ fund, amounted to 907. A number of those in attendance enjoyed a
hop after the entertainment, and afterwards the singers had a sumptuous
luncheon aiid started for thia eity.
The piano uied at the concert wns
kindly loaned by Mrs. Block, und the
organ by Mr. Sullivan. Messrs. Re-
nouf and Pleace deserve much praise
for their tasteful decoration of the
hall.

From Port Moody.—On Saturday
Constable Shurpe brought in Geo.
Pope and two Indians from Port
Moody. Pope was charged with selling liquor to Indians, and the Indians
were charged, with having liquor in
their possession. Pope was sent up
for six months, and the two Indiana
were subjected to the usual fine. The
case was tried before Justices Fen-is
and Webster. We hone Mr. Sharpe
will keep right on until he roots this
illicit traffic completely out of Port
Moody. On Monday Mr. Sharpe
brought in D. M^Gilfivrny, employed
on the railway, whom he charged witli
supplying liquor to Indians. McGillivray was fined 850 and costs, or 2
months. There are more of the same
sort, we believe, at Port Moody, and
tlie constable is bound to rake them
Surprise. — On Monday night a
large number of tbe Methodist congregation in this city called without invitation nt the parsonage to testify
their good will towards the pastor,
Rev. E, Robson. Tliese unexpected
visitors brought with them a liberal
supply of material from which a very
substantial supper was served, and the
evening passed off most agreeably in
social conversation, interspersed with
music, eto. Before leaving, Mr. 0.
G. Major, on behalf of the congregation, presented the pastor with a purse
containing 880 as a free-will offering.
In returning his thanks tho rev. gentleman stated that the whole affair was
a oomploto and perfect surprise, as ho
had not received tho remotest hint of
the intention of the congregation. It
may be mentioned that at a late meeting of tho official board a unanimous
resolution was* passed asking that Rev,
Mr. Robson remain a fourth year on
this circuit.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
FIRST SESSION OF THE FOURTH PARLIAMENT.
First came up the Kootenay bill.
Mr. Orr said if there were 20 lines of
steamers the trade would flow by the
Northern Pacific railway and that was
the natural outlet. Whatever railways
were built Would not benefit this coun
try a dollar. All the company wanted
was tu bo enabled to place tlie lauds
on tho market. If tlie lands were
placed in the hands of the free minors
the benefit to the province would be
much greater. The company only
wanted tu dispose of their franchise
and the route by which thoy would
Bend their ores in bond would give
them only two transhipments. Mr.
Orr here gave a number of distances
of points on the proposed routes. He
contended the difference between the
two routes would be 122 miles in favor
of the Northern Pacific. The company
were compelled to do nothing until
1887 oxcept the Burvey. The bill was
not suoh a hill as the provinco should
pass, and the United States were setting their face against such monopolies. It would be better to grant money
than lands. A large number of brief
amendments were proposed, some of
which were accepted and others rejected. Hon. Mr. Robson said that forfeitures would be piled on tho bill until tile enterprise would be strangled.
The object of the house should be to
surround the bill with sufficient safeguards, but not to overload it so as to
drive capital away. It might be that
the 950,000,000 lead mine would prove
to be valueless and the garden of Kootenay a desert, still the company would
be required to operate their lines of
steamers and railways to the ruin of
themselves, and without advantage to
the country. — The debate was adjourned.
The stipendiary magistrates' bill was
discussed, after which came again the
Kootenay bill, which was still further
amended. The New Westminster
southern railway bill was passed; and
so was the game bill. The Yates "st.
extension bill occupied a considerable
portion of the sitting. < During the debate un this measure Hon. Mr, Robson contended that no school reserve
should be given away without compensation. The school reserve, ho said,
was public pruperty, dedicated to educational purposes. As a corporation
Victoria collected and retained large
revenues, which would otherwise go
into the provinoial treasury, and the
right to do so carried with it certain
obligations, amongst which was the
opening, constructing and maintaining
of streets, and it could hardly be contended that in discharging this duty
tho corporation hod the right to rake
lands which had been set apart for the
purpose of education, whioh was provincial, without compensation. With
equal fairness might provincial revenue
be taken for corporation purposes.   •■ /
Hon. Mr. Robson introduced the
Municipalities act, after which tlie
Kootenay bill was taken up. Mr. Me-
Tavish moved that if any other thau
Eagle Pass was adopted by the 0. P.
R. then the company shall, at tho uox,t
Legislative session, submit a proposal
for the construction of a railroad from
Shuswap Lake to the Columbia River
by way of Eagle Pass, and that a land
grant shall be made to the' company of
not exceeding 17,000 acres a mile.-—
Mr. Orr objected to the amendment.
—Hon. M. Smithe waB very sorry that
Mr. Orr objected to the amendment;
unless a railway was brought through
Eagle Pass there was no chance of the
traffic of Kootenay being brought to
Esquimalt. The proposed grant of
17,000 acres a mile was not too muoh
when the extremely difficult character
of the country was considered.—Mr.
Helgesen said that he did not believe
the traffic of Kootenay would ever be
brought through British Columbia to
Esquimalt, as the natural outlet was
through Idaho. He would not support Mr. McTavish's amendment.-—
The amendment was earned, and tlie
bill reported for third reading on Monday.      _________
Public Opinion.
(tilrnanl from Late Kxrlian*™.
The Winnipeg Times continues its
assaults on Lieutenant-Governor Dewd-
ney. Considering the peculiar relations subsisting between that journal
and certain members of the Cabinet, it
would seem as if Mr. Dewdney's head
had been demanded. Certainly the
Times makes out a strong cose against
him, and we shall observe the upshot
with some curiosity. Sir John defended him in Parliament the other day,
but Mr. Amos Rowe is demanding his
bead. Will he got it?—Ottawa Free
Prm.
Journal of Commerce'. -The estimates
recently submitted by the Minister of
Finance are rather startling. The aggregate for next year approaches very
nearly tu $30,000,000, and although
we havo no. doubt whatever that the
Minister will be able to show ways and
means amply sufficient to provide for
them, yet it must be borne in mind
that these are obtained by heavy taxation on the people, and that the time
cannot be far distant when we shall
hnve to face another period of depression when moat assuredly the revenue
will fall off.
Tho propositi of some United States
capitalists tu tap the Kootenay district in the southern part of British
Columbia by a now traffic route has
aroused the jealousy of some British
Columbian journals. The district in
question Ib quite inaccessible from the
Fraser river except by a long and difficult road, and it iB quite accessible
from Washington Territory by way of
the Columbia river, supplemented by
a short line of railway. Under the
circumstances it seems an excess of
patriotism to seek to prevent anyone
who chooses from investing his money
in an attempt to givo the poople
amongst the Rocky and Selkirk ranges
nn outlet to the outer world.— Globe,
, .. The -Winnipeg Sun gives a hit of
'the buildings projected iu that city fur
thhJ year, which fouts up, including
the Canada-Pacific Palace Hotel, costing $450,000, and other buildings begun last year, to nearly $4,000,000, or
three-fourths of the amount actually
expended last year—the year of the
boom. The greater number of the
buildings are for business purposes,
the most costly block being estimated
at $260,000. Tho most expensive private dwellings are to cost $70,000 and
$60,000 respectively, and the cost of
public buildings amounts iu all to
8800,000, the most expensive being
the new postoffice, at $200,000. Dwelling-houses are being built on a large
scale, nnd the general character ot the
building ia better than that of last
year. More stone foundations are being put in, and Main-street ib expected
to present a more uniform appearance
when the new buildings are completed,

"What kind of man waa he 1" asked
Burton, when the other had ended his
account.
"Queer-looking chap. Face like an
officer, regulation cut of hair, long
black mustache; clothes more like a
civilian, seedy suit, rather dark color."
"Your evidence is admirable, Mr.
Jenkins. I wish every witness were as
clear. Now for two questions. Bad
he a blood-red stone ring on the little
finger of his right hand V
"Oh, you know him, I see. Yes, he
had. He wore shabby black gloves-
looked like a seedy clerk; but he took
one off to write an address, and I saw
the ring."
"Capital! And have you—it would
be almost too much luck—but have
you by chance kept that address!"
"I have, sir," replied Jenkins, with
a laugh. "I'm not so dull as people
think, in some things. I never tear up
papers that maybe useful. Here it
is, and he took from his old pocket-
book, the scrap on which Badger had
written the Bennetts' address.
"Bravo!" cried Burton, quite excited by such unexpected good-fortune.
"Now, Mr. Jenkins, I'll' tell you all
about'Z.'. We had moral certainty to
go on, but' we wanted positive proof,
and, thajiks to you, we've got it.   ""
The
gentleman you saw is Captain Badger
of the Second—and he is '27"
"You don't say so! What in the
name o{, wonder—" began Jenkins,
gazing at him in blank amazement.
"You may well look astonished; but
therejs no doubt about it. Here's a
note 6* Kb, and jrou can see the writing is the same as in your address—a
broad, round hand. Thb one, too, is
addressed to Tillybodle; and you can
compare the two words—precbely similar, as you' see. Badger hates Mr.
Bennett like poison, and he has been
set down more than once by the lady
to whom Cliit-cliat alludes. He cared
no more for you and your wife than
for that footstool; but he knew that
by sending you to the inause, and in-
sorting that paragraph, he was bringing unhappinesB on the people he disliked;   A nice specimen, isn't he 1"
"What a cadi Well, sir, I'm not
particular, but I'm dashed if I'd play
such a trick ns that!"
"So I supposed, Mr. Jenkins; and I
think you would hove regretted it had
you not helped us,"
"I should think so! Look here, Mr.
Burton, if you want my evidence, I'll
give it anywhere you choose. You
may count upon me. By George, I'm
as anxious to be down on that fellow
as you ate!"
"I'm delighted to hear it; and
though I don't think we shall have occasion to trouble you I shall remember
your promise. Now I must wbh you
good-morning. I may tako this pre.
cious bit of paper 1"
"With all my heart. And, I say,
could you let me know how it goes on ?
I'd like to Bee the thing through."
"You. shall certainly hear, replied
Burton; and'hastening to his hansom,
he drove as rapidly as possible back to
his office, whero Hardwicke was awaiting his return.
"Well 1" said he, eagerly, as Burton entered.
"Just as you thought, my dear fellow. Naver hod better luek in my
life. Evidence complete, even to a
piece of writing. And that ruffian
Jenkins as keen ss possible in pursuit
of the'bther ruffian. Upon my word,
Badger's tho worst scoundrel of the
twoF'
"I think he is," said Hardwicke.
"Thb is delightful! I only wish Bennett were here to enjoy the triumph.
Tell me all about it, and then we'll
settle how to catch our man most ef-
fectualhr." ,
"AnoVeffectively. Remember, to a
fellow like that it is the publicity of
hb failure that stings. If you go ond
tell him in a private room that you
know he's o cod, and have found out
the "/,' trick, he'll make his bow, and
not care a button. But show him up
before half a .dozen men who believe
in him, ind you con make him wince.
Couldn't you manage it ot the club,
for instance J"
"I daw say I might. You mny be
sure I won't spare him," rejoined
Hardwicke, and the lawyer sat down,
and at leisure unfolded his budget...
information.
When he described Badger's attire
Hardwicke- interrupted him. "I've
seen him in those clothes ond wondered ot them; and, now I think of it, he
was coming out of the Chit-chat offico
on his way ti the station, and crossed
the street so as to avoid ine. I'm certain he bow me.''
"Perhaps it may hove been that
very day?"
"No; it was longer ago than that.
I wonder if he puts on that suit when
he's up to somo wickedness] I dare
soy it wouldn't be convenient for him
to be recognized always. They soy he
is connected with 0 lot of third-rate
sensational periodicals."
"Penny dreadfuls, I should think,'
replied Burton, continuing his account.
Hardwicke was not long in settling the
method of his vengeance, nnd invito.!
his friend to come out with him to
Broomieknowe und see it executed;
but Burton, sorely against hi. will,
was forced to refuse, owing to a press
of business which prevented him from
leaving town.
Hardwicko, therefore, left for Stirling
alone, just two hours after Konald ana
Horris had done so. He would havo
to wait there for a short whilo, as his
dog-cart, for which he hod telegraphed, could hardly reach the station by
the timeibf his arrival; and during his
journey he debated with himsolf aa to
whether he should call, In the interval,
on the editor1 of IMt-clmt. He decided
in the negative, although he longed to
take the firat step toword his ends-
longed to be doing something toward
the exposuo of what Mr. Hurl on felicitously called the " "ff Iriuk."
Ha had'such ample material in lib
bands that, he felt tempted to net
without pausing to consult Sir Duncan;
but, besides thot this was hardly fair,
prudenco suguwted that if ho wore to
broach the ..iibj.'ct to tlir .'.!>.>r the
wary Badger might find means to
escape him. He determined, therefore, to go straight to the club, and
thore await the dog-cart. There would
be time for him to drive to Inverallan
before returning home; and Sir Duncan, who knew of his expedition to
Edinburgh, would certainly hove remained in the house on the chance of
his coming. He looked at his watch
at the station—the dog-cart could not
possibly arrive for at least half an hour
■ -bo he walked very leisurely up the
road, and turned toward the club. As
he did so he observed two gentlemen
on the other side, at the sight of whom
he started; and hurrying across, ho
seized one of them bythe hand.
"Benuett! When did you come)
The very thing I was wbhing for. I
was thinking of telegraphing to you.
What o piece of luck! Hove you passed 1" said he, oil in o breath, while
Harris gazed at him with much the
same complacency with whioh a large
and placid dog regards tho gambols of
an excited terrier.
A shade of annoyance had crossed
Ronald's face as lie sow Hardwicke
approaching, but it vanished before
the cordiality of hb greeting, and he
tried to answer his eager questions.
"I shall not know for some time
about the exam., but I think it's all
right. I came down last night. Let
me introduce my friend Harris of tho
|—tb." Hardwicke bowed, but inwardly wished that Ronald had been alone,
bo that he might have poured out at
once the history of his diroovery,
Why were you thinking of wiring
for me 1" continued Ronald.
Well, on account of a horrid business—I should say, of a very unsatisfactory business. Affair of yourowii,
connected with Jenkins," he added, in
a lower tone.
You don't say bo! Then it is the
same business that has brought Horris
to Scotland. Lst me turn bock to the
inn ond talk it over."
Why not the club!"
No, no; there will be fellows
coming in there, and I don't wont to
Bee any one," replied Ronald; and the
three went back as lie proposed, and
in the gloomy sitting-room assigned to
them sat down to compare notes.
The conversation, as might have
beon expected, was a lengthy one—so
much so that, but for o timely remembrance] on. Hardwicke's part, his
dog-cart might hove driven bock to
Broomieknowe in despair of his arrival.
The happy chances of that day
were not yet over, as he found to his
delight. After hearing all thot Ronald hod to tell, he began his own
story, and with boyish glee refrained
till the last possible moment from
mentioning Badger's name. Ronald
might have become impatient at his
delay, hod he not folt from his smiling countenance that everything was
coming right in the end; and acting
on thu conviction, he waited calmly
for the expected denouement, and
watched with pleasure hb friend's
pleased and eager face.
"Now, don't you know who 'Z' is I"
said Hardwicke, asking that question
for the last time.
"I haven't an idea," rejoined Ron-
old.
" '**' is Captain Badger of the
Second."
"To be sure! What a dolt I was
not to remember him!" said Harris,
quiotly, while Ronald remained silent,
more hurt by the revelation of his
brother-officer's baseness than he
cared to show.
"Why so 1 Do you know hiin ?" inquired Hardwicke.
"No, but my brother is in the —th,
Badger's original regiment.   He hod
to leave it, and  exchange into the
Second.   My brother's a youngster,
and joined afterward, but of courso he
knew about him."
"What did he do!"
"Oh, there was o scandal—on affair
in the regiment nbout a lady—and
Badger got hold of it, and tried just
the same trick os he has done now; ho
wrote an anymous letter."
"And was found out?"
"Yes, and very near got n thrashing.
Some say he did get it.   He had to
leave, of course."
"Did you know this on board ship
Harris I" asked Ronald.
"No. I always hod an idea thot I
had heard something against him, but
I couldn't remember what it was. Any
one could seo he was a cad. After yuu
left town T went down to my brother
at Aldershot, and happened to mention
him one day, and then he told nbout
this old affair. I hod forgotten the
name of tho man, and the regiment he
exchanged into."
"Captain Badger will hove to exchange again. The regiment will hardly stand him now," said Ronald, in o
tono of intense bitterness.
"Ah, you'll tell the colonel ?"
"If he doesn't the colonel will hear
of it from others," sold Hardwicke.
"I shall state the whole thing to one
of tho senior officers privately," said
Ronald.
"Quite right; he's not a credit to
your regiment," romorked Harris.
"But do you know, Hardwicke, this
discovery has quite changed my opinion about tho way in which we should
proceed next. I would rather avoid
ony public oxposure of a man who b
in tho regiment," said Konald.
"Why, what difference can thot
mako I" asked Hardwicke, with surprise, while Harris glanced at Ronald
approvingly.
"A great deal of difference. I don't
like to seo our uniform disgraced, and
I should much prefer a private meeting in which Badger might be mode lo
givo o formal apology,"
"Then you might as well let him off
scotlroo. Burton said just tho same
as I do- a man of that stomp con only
be punished publicly. No, tn,, Ronald; I've hunted him down, nnd I'm
not going to let him on". He slandered
you in the club, and in the club I'll
expuso him."
"Thon I wonld rather not bo present."
"I think Dutinett is right," said
Harris, observing Hardwicke's mortified look. "You con speak more flcoly
in somo respect in his absence,"
"That is true. Well, I suppose it
must lie ns you like. Anil now that
wo hove dono talking you must both
come out with me to Broomiuknowo.
It's getting late; I shall barely hove
time to drive ovor and toll Sir Duncan."
