VOLUME. 23
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, SATtEDAY, JANUARY 27, 1883.
A Crist Slill.
We it* of opinion that the proper
time hits come for the estiililisliraniit
of a flour tnd oatmeal mill in tlie
vicinity of New Westminster.   We
do not forget that there was a grist
taill her* once, and that it did not
pay. But that was long ago, and tlm
grain required had to be imported
from abroad. Tlie condition of things,
as related to this question, haa entirely changed since thnn.   Few peo-
plt hare any true conception of the
large amount of arable land there is
lutween the Gulf of Georgia and the
coast range uf mountains, enmpris
ing the District of New Westminster.   In all  this region there is
scarcely any faoility for the manufacture of floor or feed, not a grist
mill from the Gulf to the Mission,
on either side of the river.   In tiie
section iiidicntwl  lie the important
municipalities   ot    Maple    KM;;?,
Ltngley, Surrey, Doltu, Richmond,
Granville, Hastings, Moodyvillo ami
Port Moody, with territory enoligh
Unorganized to  constitute, in   tlie
near future, several large townships.
When we take into account the great
extent of country embraced within
these bounds, the adapteduess of the
soil for the production of ceienls,
and the acreage already under cultivation, we risk nothing in saying
that if there were, in some central
position, a good flour and oatmeal
mill, with capital  enoligh  in Hit!
bands of the proprietor to purchase
she grain offered for sale, it would
pay well from the start and very
loon make a handsome fortune foils possessor.  The fact is within onr
cnowledge, that quite a number of
ntelligeut and interprising farmers,
the have come to this district with-
n the last few years, are deterred
rom going largely into grain crops
inly by the difficulty—nay iinpossi-
ility—of having the grain nmi-.iifa.c-
ured into merchantable brauil-stufls
nd feed.   As things are at present
; would cost morn to send a grist
rom Richmond or Delta to any exiting mill and bring it back again
hen ground than the flour would
> worth.   And so it collies to pass
lat our ca|iable and willing farmers
-a. compelled toconlli.e themselves
i raising stock and stock-feed whicli
ies not require to be manufactured,
irirg an ac-e or two of wheat to
ip|dy the trifling local dliljiaud for
licken feed.   This state uf tilings
tut soon come to an end or tlie
untry will be seriously retarded iu
I progress.   Tbe nest question is
to the proper location for the prosed mill.   And we liiive no hesitant In affirming New Westminster
be the most suitable placo, fuiin-
j as it does a central "hub" to the
tire circle of the outlying town
ips mentioned, which arb nll with
easy reach of our city, and most
them well connected with it by
i finest water-ways in tho world,
ith the ej-iiiblidbmentof tho steam
ry and the opening up and im-
ivement of roads which are likely
take place within the next year,
lost every settler from them town-
IB could rea'oh New Westminster
h his load of grain in a day; ami
most of them could come and go
hat time. So soon as tbe railway
II have been completed from Bur
I Inlet to the interior of the pro
te all through freight and travel
, of course, take that channel,
the local steamers will then ply
•very direction upon the main
r and its arms towards the sea
larket boats between tbe vaiioua
ements and this central market
I ot the district which will, by
time, be connected with the
I line of railway by a loop or
ch, as tli'A' case may be.   It is
as of Mint as alnytbiug can bo,
in New Westtn'irisier wo have
Iti'ategic' point whW Suoh an
important industry should be established. With the facilities thus
created, it is safe to affirm thnt in
two or three years the quantity of
fine grain raised in this district
would be increased fifty-fold—and,
we need hardly odd, that while the
whole district would bo very greatly
benefited, New Westminster would
reap a rlcli harvest in increased
trade and commerce. No other enterprise could do more towards
bringing the pe'ople of tho outlying
settlements to our city, and thus alt
branches of business woijJ.be stimulated. In view of this fact, wo are
sure that the rate-payers would sustain the City Council in ottering a
reasonable bonus for the establishment and operation of such an industry. The only question remaining i'b the very practical one: Who
will undertake itl Tliat we have
amongst us' men possessed of the
requisite capital and business ability,
we do not doubt. And it would be<
well for such to investigate the matter carefully before embarking in
other enterprises which do not promise half so well. Tf no one individual
will undertake it, let a syndicate of
those interested be formed. Who
will move in tlm mutter) He who
does it, well and wisely, wiil teceivo
not only the thanks tif the community but the inore substantial reward
of ncciimnlating thousands—honest
profits of an honorable industry.

LIFE.
Shndows changing, shadows netting,
Life is hut a mootcoryi
Shadows parting, shadows meeting,
Shade with shade in strife competing,
Shadows forming, passing hy,
R'lrtli is but a strange phantasm,
Lite the brook now flowing past,'
Men the shades that from each chasm,
On the waves with frantic spasm,
Arc in checkered order cost.
Blladbs that on the sand nud shinglo
Quiver iu unceasing strife;
Now they rest apart and single;
Now iii one dark nam they mingle;
Now they fade away from Hfo.
AU we know is but delusion,
Part of one faint passing dream;
That, too dim for our solution,   .
Fills our hearts with wild confusion,
Pressing its fantastic theme.
On a consciousness dtlll dreaming,
On a mind itself so vain
That no pondering, nor scheming,
Comprehends the shadows teeming
Of its pleasure or its pain.
Men may strive—but strife is nothing—
None enn alter unseen fate;
To the void, despite their loathing,
Hollow shades must still bo moving,
Dreams must fade, or soon, or late.

Gladstone and the Porto.
A London correspondent of an American papor says:—"Lord Granvillu:a
note to tho European powers, whioh
was presented at Slambou! yesterday,
gives great satisfaction, contrary to
general expectation*", it sketches the
entire plan of reconstruction in Egypt,
The cardinal features nro tho abolition
nf tho control, the appointment of a
European finance minister to assist the
khedive, and plans for tho freedom nf
th'e Sue?, Canal. The latter have'al
ready been approved at Berlin, Vienna
and Uoine, The porta is known to bo
most eonoilliatory. It lias entirely
cbmigo'd its Htiitude. Tho abandonment of Arabi's control is gratifying
to Lord Granvillo, and he desius to
recognize the .Sultan's position in
Egypt. Borlm heartily approves of
the abolition of the control, nml the
French ayes* ia irritated, und tbo Du-
elore cabinet is sullen. Rome strongly
desires to bu iu accord with England,
the Italians preferring English financial nd mi lustration to French. England felt hor way beforehand, and His-
ntarck is' favorable to anything she can
accomplish. Thu Suez canal scheme
seems tu have been already accepted
and will urobubly bo' ratified at au
early day."

.graphic despatches this morning thnt
H. R. H. the Prince of Wales is expected to pay a visit to this continent next spring, and that, bo will
'extend his tour as far as British
'Columbia. Should that programme
be carried out we are sure His .1 loyal
Highness will meet witli a most cordial reception in this province.
There can be no better emigration
agents than members of the Royal
^Family; and, aside from our well-
known loyalty, it would be directly
to our interest to make tho occasion
worthy of the distinguished visitor.
There are some things in the
speech from the Throne which deserve attention; but as it is generally
believed that tho Government will
never live to carry it into etl'ect, the
"policy indicated is of very little consequence. fcV>me of th- few moasures
proposed will undoubtedly be adopt-
«ed by thu new Government which
. must soon take the place of tlie present one. Tho speech itself is long
enough, but really it contains tin
extremely small amount of business,
The reference so often mnde to the
Chinese question comes tor- late to
bring any credit to tbo GpvuL-nmcnt,
Our Mall Service
Nothing more quickly breeds dfo-
" content in any community than a
bad mail service, There aro very
few people who do not like to re*
•ceive letters (unless they happen to
be in debt) and evory one wants to
get his letters with tlie very least
possible delay. It is a long timo
now sinco anything has been done to
improve mail service for the mainland of British Columbia. Two
mails a week from Victorin to New
Westminster, and a weekly mail
from New Westminster up, is what
the post-otiico authorities seem to
imagine will satisfy our wants. Last
-summer an additional mail was car
ried on the steamer Slope, but it
increased the conveniences of the
services only to a very limited ex
tent, as the Slope's days of sailing
were both badly chosen and very
uncertain. The time has come (it
came long ago) when our muinliuid
representatives at Ottawa should insist upon very greatly-increased mail
accommodation. It has been already
stated in these columns that tbo railway line will probably bo completed
from Port Moody to Yale beforo the
end of the present year. Tbe completion of that line will give the
country as far up as Yale fnoiUtiu*
for a daily mail service throng!
whole season, at a very small c--a.
It ia not too soon for the post ollice
authorities to be making plans which
will enable them to give up-country
people the full htnefit of these increased carrying facilities. During
the present year, also, it'is expected
the Northern Pacific Railway will
be fully completed, and there will
be uninterrupted communication ovor
that line from tbe East to Puget
Sound. In a recent article tbo Colonist proposed that, on tbe completion of that road (probably some
time in July) a daily mail serVioe
should be established between the
Sound and Victoria. Wo endorse
heartily the Colonist's proposal. Our
Canadian mails would then come
ever the Northern Pacific ntid io
Victoria in about three days less
time than is now required to reach
tbat city. But if Victoria has a
daiFy mail service, what about the
Mainland? Hie interests of this part
of the province are surely as worthy
of consideration as those of Victorin.
We submit, .then, that tho daily
mail should extend aa far as tlm ser
vice can be performed with efficiency
and at reasonable cost. There should
be a daily mail service between this
•ity and  Viotoria, and a daily ser
vico to Yalo as soon hs tin* trains ot*
the 0. P. Ii, are ready to. .undertake
Htich a service. The cost of this
whole daily mail servico, wo believe,
would not exceed the subsidy nosi
paid to the mail steamer between
Victoria and San Francisco, Indeed
the passenger nnd freight tralfic from
the Bound to Victoria and Now
Westiiiilister would, on tiio completion of the Northern Pacific Railway, be iu itself largo enough and
profitable enough to mako the line
pay without any subsidy at all. If
tho people of Victoria havo ciniso to
complain of the slowness and inefficiency of their mail service, surely
the people of this city unci district
have double cause. Victoria has
now a tri-weekly mail from the
Sound, and a tri--monthly mail from
San Francisco; and it takes the
Canadian mail only three days from
San Francisco to Victoria. We have
to be content with a semi-weekly
muil from • Victoria, and Canadian
mails via San Francisco veiy often
He three days in Victoria before they
aro despatched to this city. The San
Francisco mail steamer arrived at
Victoria last Tuesday morning, mid
the delivery of tlie mail matter here
will probably not be completed until
noon to-day—four days after its arrival in Victoria! Any person who
takes tho trouble to consult the calendar and tho time-table of the mail
steamers will perceive that a similar
delay will occur throughout nearly
tho whole yenr, with very few exceptions. Such delays in the do-
livery of our mails nro sadly nt variance with the spirit of thcr.aga, and
t is more than time n remedy went
found. The British Columbia representatives now nt. Ottawa should
bring these facts beforo the postoliice authorities and demand better
accommodation. We believo the
necessary accommodation can best be
secured in the way we have indicated,
and atitii expense probably much less
than the cost of the present wretched
service,
X Slow About- Hie Canadian
Pacific Railway,
Tho right time to leave Chicago for
St. Paul is by the evening train, which
enables ono to enjuy the scenery of
thu Mississippi by daylight instead nf
wasting the daylight as I ilid on the,
monotonous prairie. To get the night
train, however, I should either have
had to start tin Sunday evening or
wait till Monday evening. I mot a
railway man full of iniorination about
tho North-.West roads At-unrding to
him, tho Canadian Pacific1 has by no
means the prospect <>f i tonqpuly which
ia commonly suppum-d, Mr. Vilhird,
ho says, tho great rai • , jhenior of
the Northern Pacific, j - --cured control of tho St. Paul, ..iinieiipolis &
Manitoba road. That fabulously prosperous company had, with u view to
rualijiiug for its owners, put new stock
on the market to blie extent of several
times that held by tho owners of the
road. This stock was qumtlv gathered
up by Mr. Villard. Before" this fact
was understood by tho Syndicate gentlemen came the transaction for securing to the Syndicate the Manitoba (S:
South-Western, then cimU'oUotl by
Dr. Sohulta. Mr, Villard had his
finger in this business, and managed
that tlie transfer should lie made nnt
to the Canadian Pacific, but to the St.
Paul, Mineapolis & Manitoba, of which
he was then quietly securing control,
This transaction being finished thu
Syndicate found themselves out of
power in the St. Paul, Minneapolis iV
Manitoba, both It and the Sohults! road
having gone over to the enemy, tho
Northern Pacific, The Noi'thurn Pacific, by this means- not only has control of the Canadian Pauific'd.tinly present connection with the outer world,
but hy connection with the Manitoba
nutU-Westoriij which has the right of
crossing the frontier, ean compote with
tho Canadian Pacific on its own territory, iho monopoly being practically
broken, Far, then, from really objecting tti the opening of a now lino
across tho boundary, the Canadian Pacific, as wo may call the Syndicate gentlemen, they having now no other ill-
torist than that of their Canadian
road, desire nothing unire than a
breach of the Oiidor-uiuidmg with thein
in that particular, which would relieve
thein, as tln-y hold, from their responsibility of carrying through iho expensive parts of the line. Thu line along
the. north shore of La Ice Superior" and
lhat across the Rocky Mountain-* would
iu that- case bo built just when the
Company ohoao, According lo this
authority Sir John Macdonald, in vetoing the Manitoba charters, appears
as tho great champion of Canada in
affording no excuse for tho breaking of
the contract, which would give tho
Company all the sweet and none nf thy
bitter of their agreement and miiltu
that agreement vastly moro profitable
oven thau it is under the strictest enforcement of kh conditions, while thoso
who have been demanding iho emancipation of Manitoba from this gulling
monopoly appear to him in the light
of blunderers, who with the best intent are doing ull they can to injure
tho country. There is room, however,
for considerable doubt if tho permission of Manitoba to charter lines running out of the Province would freo
tho Company from its understandings
in thu contract. At the limu the contract was passed it was distinctly nf-
firmed by Sir John Maodotiatd that
Manitoba would have that power and
sumo of his organs havo since asserted
that tlm Oove.rninutit was not hound
by tho contract to veto provincial legislation. —Cor. Montreal Witness,

SPEECH FKOSI  TUB THltONR.
Mr. Speaker, Gentlemen of lhe Legislative A.tembhj:
I havo much pleii3uro in meeting you
lit tho opening of tho firat eons ion <>f
the fourth term of mir Legislature
since tho union of thin province with
the Dominion of Onilatttt; and 1 littvo
much gratification iu shitm^ the [itist
year has been onu uf peueraj prosperity. The Ci'Hiiiier-.-iiil iiiu-rcsts havo
vory much' improved;] ' ifslness men
throughout the provinco speak well of
tlieiV last season's opnrai inns and most
hopefully of the future; agriculturists
have been blessed by Proyideupo with
nn abundant harvest and a good in-irk-
ot; stock-raisers tind ready sale at remunerative prices for tlieiV herds; the
exports of il.-th, lunib'er ami coal have
largely increased; while the product
of our t'old milieu, although not in excess of former suss-oiis, has been liberal
proportionately witjl the mi tuber nt
the population now engaged in. that
industry.
Tho improved condition of agriculture especially has been a source nf
sincere pleasure to all who realize tho
value of that permanent and very important factor iu the welfare of every
community.
The rapid development of the coal
trade has added materially to the general prosperity of the community, and
with an increasing demand for fuel
alnngthe Pacific seaboard, that indus-,
trjr appears capable of almost unlimited
o&tinsion.
Tbo importance nf malting every
effort to assist iu the development of
tbo milling resources of tho province
induces ine io brieve that further assistance should be granted to aid ex-
plurers iu their oflorts to discover valuable mineral deposits.
The International Fishery Exhibition to he held in London this year
alfoi-U* an admirable opportunity for
bringing to public notice in Europe
the enormous value of our various lish
products.
Since the Inst meeting of the Legislative Assembly I havo again urged
upon the Dominion tiovermuent tbe
importancti of opening to settlement
tho lands on the Mainland conveyed
to tho Federal Government in trust in
furtherance of tho con*,(ruction of tbe
Canadian Pacific Railway, but the importance of action upon* this subject
has not as yet apparently iuipresHcd
itself upon the Dominion authorities.
The private company who obtained
a charter for the'conn true tion of a railway a>-ng the euHt const of Vaneonvor
Island faired to eomnly with the terms
of the statute; and I have broin-ht to
the noiicoof the Dunlin If ill Govornment the necessity of taking such steps
as may be rc-piisilo to secure commencement of the Island llailway as
early as practicable in lift apiMng.
I communicated with the Dominion
Government in tho early part of Ihe
year with rofo'rchoo to the advisability
of assisting iinm'igration to the province and, if puniMb- Inducing the
contractors forajn/rlii-n nf the Canadian Pacific Railway wi'hiti J-.riiish
Columbia to tmc-tunitfo and employ tbe
labor of our own and kindred raei-s
instead of Chincno. I received in reply tho information thnt tho Govern-
mont had aot-the mean* of inducing
the contractors to employ tho class of
labor requested,
lam of opinion that theBiibject of
cnopiu'iitioi) with thu Dominion Gov
eminent, with a view lo promote desir
able immigration to our province, is
onu worthy of your earnest deliberation.
Having been informed that after fho
departure of Her Majesty's Bhipn
R.oclcet, Kingfisher and Comus no
vessel nf Her Majesty's navy would be
permanently station od iu British Columbia waters, nnd realizing the grave
disadvantages which might ensue thero-
from, I brought tho subject to tho
attention of tho Federal Government
and requested they would move tho
Imperial Government to cause voh-u-U
of war tu lie stationed at Esijuimalt in
accordance with our terms of union,
My riiprosenrations on this subject
were promptly entertained by tho Dominion Executive, who instructed the
High CommiHRiimer for Ca'iTiuIn to wait
upon the Right Honorable the Secretary of State for the Colonies nnd press
upon. Her Majesty's Government tlio
importance of the maintenance of the
squadron in British Columbia waters.
Much interest is doubtless taken by
you in the Graving Doek nt Esipiiiualt,
the largest, provincial public work now
undor construction. One of tho engi-
neers-in-chivf has recently visited lis-
quinialt and his reports and other papers conveying full information on the
condition of the work will be at once
transmitted to you.
The increasing evils arising Iron) the
unrestrained immigration uf Chinese
led mo to urge the Federal Government to promote the necessary legislation for the purposo of restricting
Chinese from entering this province
and from obtaining employment on
Dominion public works, and I shall
ask you to mako furthor representations of tho same subject to the parliament of Canada. Copies of tho statutes referring to tho rotdrict.on of
Chinese immigration in force in Victoria, Australia, and in the United
States of America will be placed before
you.
Iu accordance with tho wishes of tlio
previous legislature; tenders wero invited for km-ping in repair the wagon
road from Yale to Caribou Contracts
were let in August, 1881, for tlm portions Imtwi'flu Vale and'Cacho Crei-lt,

jcet will tlierertlro bu brought before
you for deliberation.
A bill to H.*-siniilalc..tIie eleclioi) and

The incroftEimi number of transactions in real estate on the Mainland

of any reference iu the Spueeh to the

caused so much bus and sulTeriiig nu

in consequence of a largo order, cou-

Wfio Took TeNd-Kebir.?
A eorreKjinndetjt writing frnm London says:"—I believe that General
Hamley's article <m Tcl-el-Kebir in
the Nineteenth Century bim produced a
grout ootinnntion Hii'n'.ng the mi'litarj
authoi'iuu.*f. Geuer;il Ham% giyca a
very dilierent account nf thb attack
from that of Lord Wolseley. His nrticlo is not iu form, but iu sul'slance
an impeachment of the accuracy of
Lord Wolseley's description of the capture of Tel-el-Kebir. Genoral Haniley
assorls ihat tbe inlrenchiiioiitfl were
carried and all the lighting really dono
by the neoond division, which ho commanded, whilo Lord Wolseley stated,
in effect, that tho fighting was pretty
equally distributed among all the
troops engaged in the lirst lino of attack. Tho difference of view has led
to much heartburning and recrimination among tho highest military an
thonties; and I hear that a complaint
hau even beeu made that General
Mauiley, in publishing bis views nu
tho subject, has buen guilty of a violation nf the rules nf discipline. Whether any notice will be taken of (ho conduct of General Hamley, I do not
know; but there is no doubt tlmt his
description nf tho light at Tel-el-Kebir
has given much umbrage to Lord Wolseley itnd his friends. What makes
tho matter of more importance is lhat
General Hamley will bo the historian
of the campaign. He intends to writo
an exhaustive account of the Egyptian
war, wliich will naturally become the
authority on the subject, and in this
account be will, of course, adhere to
his own views in lW-ird to the fight at
Tobel-Kebir.

whieh a tag accompanies each ono of our
Oold Cases, which plainly indicates not
only the gross weight of the case, but
also the Net weight of tho gold.
in explanation of the above we dewire
to sny that the old plan of chnrghig for
the gross weight of the case, ns if it were
all gold, worked well enough ns long ns
the maimfaetiiiers were content with the
amount of brass and steel netnally re

business was degraded into a contest ns
to who should get the most base metal
into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Oold case, then the time eamc when,
in the interest of dealers iu Amorloau
Watches, it booftino necessary to adopt a
nlnii'ot selling, showing the buyer exnet-
1/ how nitieh Ooi.if each cose contained.

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER XIX.
tHE GREAT MUOU/
{Continued,)
The general was carried in a litter
now, too ill ot fever tu rule, but not tu
ill to make his plans, and liavo I hem
executed as coolly es over.
Kandahar was safe, and every man
felt relieved when tlm bright flashes of
the heliograph signalled the good news.
Other good news there was nlso:
Ayoob meant to fight, and though he
had moved off from "beforo tho city, it
was only to take up a stronger position
than before, among tlio low hills that
lie near it.
"We Bhall bo able to lick them after
all," said Konald, with a suhduud
fierceness in his tone that at ruck his
Companions; "I thought he'd have
clipped through our lingers."
''What a fellow you aro for fighting,
Bennett! One would think you had a
personal spite against Ayoob.   1 never
saw you so keen about thrashing those
. Cabul scoundrels."
"Wasn't I? Oh, well, I suppose ono
wants to make an end of the affair, and
this ought to be about the finish of it,"
said Ronald, with an attempt at a
laugh. He would not for worlds have
had any one suspect that he had indeed a personal interest in tho coming
combat, for it seemed to hiin that he
would be avenging Muriel's husband,
and he wished that fur a fow hours he
could havo exchanged the sword which
would in all likelihood remain unstained, for the rifle with which he might
have done execution on the foe he
hated.
When the news of the disaster had
reached Cabul, the names of tho killed
had been imperfectly given, aud he
had been uncertain as to Leslie's fate;
but on the 27th, when two or throe
officers rodo out with a small escort
from the city of Kandahar to tho
camp, he had quickly learned the
truth. One of the wounded had seen
Leslie making a desperato stand in an
enclosure; and though Ronald heard
as yet but fow details, enough was told
to fire him^vith a bitter desire for revenge.
He hardly remembered, as a less
chivalrous man might have done, that
Muriel wob wife no longer, but a
widow, so young that she might well
marry again, and that he hi in self was
not new outside the pale of hersociuty;
he only thought of her iu tears and
misery, and of her gallant husband
struck down without hope or help in a
hole from which thore was no escape.
Enough had reached the cars of the
men for them to shave thesame temper; and the general, as he scanned
their faces, recognized upon them that
look which was once aptly described
in the Mutiny as "the look the Sahibs
wear when they don't mean to turn
back."
Ayoob'a troops were full of fanatical
confidence; they had beaten the infidels once and they meant to do it
again. Ayoob himself was risking
everything on one throw, and ho knew
he was to lose or win a kingdom; but
neither fanatics nor prince could stand
before the determined courage that
animated every soldier in Robert's gallant little force.
Hou they fought and won the battle
of the 1st September has beeu often
told. Men uf the garrison stole out
tho day before and whispered terrible
things of the GlinzisJ forgetting that
the soldiers of Shercpore had faced
them many a time.
"Wait till we meet them," said a
sturdy little Ghoorkha, clapping n
lanky, grave-looking Bombay sepoy on
the back; "wo don't care for your
Ghazis*'—and he turned for continuation to his comrades, who echoed his
laugh.
But the Bombay man only shook his
head; it was useless for him to argue
with these mad fellows, who, at the
command of their madder general,
were rushing into the jaws of death.
Kismet! There would be terrible times
for him and his companions in Kandahar when the mighty warriors of
Ayoob'a army should havo devoured
this too confident force!
And they wero going to attack tho
face of tho Kotal too, the great fortress
in which the enemy's guns wero strongly planted and the flower of his mon
were hidden. Certainly destruction
would overwhelm them! So thought
the disheartened spectators in Kandahar, not perceiving that the front attack was but a feint, and that away
where a village crowned a low mound
troops were working round so as to
turn the right flank of the foe.
Bitter work it wasubout that village,
where every house was loop-holed and
every garden walled, and where, in
every available shelter, desperate mon
fought for their lives. Hotter and
hotter grew tho fire, aud the men of
the Second went down fast, caught iu
a narrow channel whero volleys fired
by unseen dofuiders from tho loop
holes tore through their ranks.
Down went more than one officer in
the act of cheering on the men; but
their losses only served to exasperate
them, and at last, with a final cheer of
defiance,-they dashed at lhe wall, and
with their own rifles thrust into the
loop-holes, shot down the Ghazis inside. Those of the defenders that
rushed out woro met in hand-to-hand
conflict; and Ronald, carried away by
fierce excitement, fought his wuy with
his men right through tho crowded
channel, hardly conscious the while
that his left arm was wounded and
covered with blood.
So far thingB had gono well;' hut
Ayoob made a last stand beside his
guns on tho other sido of a deop watercourse. Again it fell to the lot of the
Second to disperse them, and, fixing
bayonets, they charged, cheering the
while across the nullah, and the onoiny
broke and fled. Round then on to the
retreating masses came another brigade, and swept along the edge of tho
water-courses, away to the empty camp
where abandoned guns and deserted
tents told of a precipitate flight.
"JCismetf" said the Bombay sepoy
again, with a sigh of relief, and wont
down from his safe post of observation
behind a sand-bag to his mid-day menl
of rice and pease. The mad genorul
had not been overwhelmed, and theso
newly arrived soldiers wore men of
wdoubteble   strength.   Nevertheless,
if -they had defeated the Ghazis, and
restored peace and comfort, lo hfo snul,
it must bo becauso the thing had been
ordained. Was it not ordained, too,
that he himself should be unlike them,
aud should feel his heart melt wil hin
him at the sight of tho wild warriors
who fought undor the green hauliers)
Kismet—of courso it wus, and no one
could alter these mutters.
The Bombay sepoy dined well that
day, and folt, as lie thought over the
miserable time he had sponl. iu Kandahar, that ho deserved much from tho
English Government that made liim a
soldier.
CHAPTER XX.
HOME  WITH   HONORS.
Whon Ronald returned to catnp after
the fight, and resigned himself to tho
Surgeon's hands, ho found that his
usual luck had not deserted him, for
the wound in his arm was pronounced
to he a more scratch,   '
Borrowing a pony from a brother-
officer*, ho set out some days later for
the field of Maiwand, along with a
party sent to inspect the field and
identify and bury tlie dead.
It was a sight that as long as lie
lived he wonld never forget, lie had
seen other battlo fields, and had grown
accustomed to tho iignuies that ave
shadows to the fiery light-of victory;
hut where the army of Cabul had
marched it had been to success, and
thero wero honor and fume as well as
regret for those who diod to secure it.
How different were the feelings with
which the detachment now sent out
surveyed the broken ground, tho deep
nullah, tho close enclosures whore out-
soldiers had perished in all tho shame
and terror of helpless defeat!
Very grim and stern wero tho faces
of officers aud men as they moved
about the field, now passim.' tho long
lines of horses that, had drawn tho
guns gnyly into action, now crushing
under their feet hundreds of empty
cartridges, that showed whero a persistent fire had. boon poured upon tho
gathered thon'sauds of thu fob, now
shrinking from a carelessly-mado pit,
protruding out of which somo bloodstained cap or more terrible shrivelled
limb told of tho ghastlier mass below.
Here, again, was a mud-wall, behind which brave hearts had rallied
desperately, and died facing the, enemy, as the dark stains along its surface plainly showed; aud yonder, farther away, was a tract of graves, where
Afghan dead lay gathered together in
long lines that told how dearly some
of our troops had sold their lives.
Hero, again, a -huge cairn of stones
wns piled by careful hands to murk the
spot where the gnus fought nn so long
—six against thirty—till, their daring
loader shot, uud tho retreat begun,
pursued nnd pursuers surging down
upon them, an ulticei- who remained
bid thom limber up and rat ire. Tlieir
gallantry, like that of the brave Sixty-
sixth; shed the only light that pierced
the gloom of that dark aud ratal day.
The graves— our grave:)—were gradually made more seemly, stones piled
over some, withrourid-shot found lying
on the Held for monument. Onu large
pit was opened, and tlio poor remains
laid out fur decent burial. It was with
surprise that the soldiers saw, as lhey
removed the loose sand and fragments
of a wall that had been hastily thrown
down to fill the space, that the dead
had not been stripped by lhe pillaging
hands of tho villagers—it was possible
even to identify many; and it was soon
mado clear that here lay that gallant
little baud of tho Sixty-sixth, of whom
the natives themselves told that thoy
had fought bo well, and wil.li such high
bearing, that though thoir numbers
dwindled ono by one, Hot a man of
Ayoob'a Chassis, flushed though they
wero with triumph, dared advance to
cut thom down.
Man by man thoy fell within lhe
littlo garden iu wluoh they made their.
desperato stand; liolp or hopo there
was none, but for the honor of England, and by their torn oolors, they
could die facing tho foe. It was all
that was left them to do, and this lhey
did with an heroic splendor grander
than iho brightest courage Unit over
carried on a soldier in the glory of a
winning light. Without comrades to
cheer, or the hope of reward to incito,
they slood, till onty ii scant doisen remained, and these with a wild English cheer dashed out to meet death on
tho  Afghan blades.
In hushed tones Iho work of identification went on, and Ronald Bennett
watched it with aching heart, scanning
each poor stiffened corpse in search of
tho well-known faco that he remembered so strong and so guv. At last it
camo, and ho stepped forward and reverently took off his cap ns ho snid,
"That is Captain Leslie uf tho iSixty-
sixth."
Round tho left arm was twisted a
remnant, of the colors, ns though ho
had last had charge of them, ami with
gentle hands Ronald removed a scrap
of the tattered embroidery.
As they lifted the body, something,
caught liis eye at tho throat where tho
coat was open -a tiny chain, so small
na to be easily overlooked. A locket
hung to it, and that, too, Ronald removed and undertook to send homo tn
the dead man's wifo. Then tho grave
wns covered in seemly fashion, nnd
their task over, tho soldiers pnid what
honor thoy could to tlie dead.
To tho slow nnd slntcly strains of
the Dead March, the soldiers'roijuiein,
a hundred men of tho Fusiliers camo
along to the spot where tho dead lay
thickest, and tho attendant chaplains
road tho services amid a solemn stillness. In ns soloiuu silence the troops
proseuted arms, there wns a moment's
hushed pause, aud thon (hoy wheeled
and returnod quietly to camp. No
rattling volley and no joyous music
wero allowed hero as nt an ordinary
soldier's funeral, hut in sorrowful si-
lenco the dead ot Maiwand were left to
their long repose.
When it wns found that Ronald
knew both Mrs. Leslie and her fathor,
the task of writing- to them naturally
fell to him, and by next nmil he forwarded to Sir Duncan both tho relics
he had carried away, and as full an account as he could give of the place and
manner of Leslio's death. It wasn
hard task, and more than once hu laid
down his pen, feeling with keen pain
the Buffuring that his lettur must cause;
yet ho judged—and rightly—that tho
bereaved hearts at homo would long
for any detail, however slight, that
would (ill in tho terrible blank tlint was
so hard to bear.
