The Cement War.    :
The provincial premier lias been
guilty of the indiscretion of provoking a newspaper eontrovtrsy about
his inconceivably stupid and now
celebrated cement upeculutiou. The
Colonist of Tuesday has a moat
trenchant article upon the subject,
which must surely have convinced
tlio premier of the folly of enter-
ing into such a discussion. The
transaction just happened to be one
of those things that cannot hear
discussion. The move light you
throw on it the worse it looks. The
Colonist states what every .engineer
knows, what most people who are
not engineers know, that cement
should be used ns soon after grinding us possible, and that it seldom
retains any of its valuable properties for a greater period than two or
three years. Our contemporary
might have added that in no important work would commit of that
age he allowed to he used. It would
be condemned. What can the public think of tlie premier's conduct,
in purchasing in 1874 cement for
the graving dock,'when, as the Colonist conclusively shows, he must
have known that it could not possibly be used iu the construction of
tho dock before 1878? Nor is the
full weight of this egregious blunder to be gauged by the hundred
thousand dollars it is likely to cost
the people of British Columbia. The
graving-dock is an important work,
whether viewed iu the light of its
costliness or anticipated usefulness;
and if any work called for good,
live enmnnt it was surely the foundations of tho dock. But what is
the fact 1 The foundations are Inid
with dead cement that ought to
have been condemned ! How much
morn than the hundred thousand
dollars this cement transaction may
yet cost the country it would, indeed,
be difficult to say. That it will cost
more there can he little doubt. It
requires not engineering skill to understand the folly of employing
dead cement in such a work.
Stipendiary Magistrates.
TJiuW this heading, onr Victoria
contemporary quotes from the presentment of the Grand Jury in this
city, at tho December assizes, respecting the necessity for a resident
Judge and a Stipendiary Magistrate,
and, after giving the gist of the
Judge's reply thereto, founds the
following pithy article thereon;—
To these observations uf the grand
jury and the judge we wish to call the
attention of the public and ths legis
hit tire soon to assemble. By reference
to the Dominion statutes, 1872, chap.
20, page 53, wo find provision made
for the payment by thu Dominion of
the County Court judges in British
Columbia, and the contemplation of
their being employed as stipendiary
magistrates, namely (we quote front
tho statute):
1 stipendiary magistrate for Victoria  $2,230
1 stipendiary magistrate for Now
Westminster    2,425
1 stipendiary magistrate for Cariboo     3,400
1-stipendiary magistrate for Yale   3,000
1 stipendiary magistrate for Lil-
looet and Clinton    2,400
1 stipendiary magistrate for Nanaimo and Coinox    2,250
/ 	
315,725
"As long as each of tho present stipendiary magistrates retains the office of
County Court Judge."
As a fact, we know that Messrs,
Pembarton, Buihby, Ball, O'Reilly,
Sanders, and Spaulding filled the
offices of County Court judge until
retired, all being still alive and in
, vigorous health with the exception of
Mr. Bushby, the lhtt County Court
judge of New Westminster. With
reference to Mr. Bushby's situation,
we know that for several years after
his death provision was made in the
Dominion estimates for payment of
the same salary to his successor. In
Victoria the system was worked well
by Mr. Pemhcrton (without objection
from the Dominion Government), anting as police and stipendiary magistrate on appointment by the local
Government, with tho consent of the
Corporation and to the satisfaction of
the Corporation, as shown by their
continuing him in the latter office
since his removal on being pensioned
as a County Court judge. No steps
wore   taken   to   fill   Mr.   Bushby's

vacancy, notwithstanding provision
made by the Dominion Government
for payment of- his successor, or
to make the oth* County Court
judges stipendiary magistrates throughout their respective^ districts. The
legislature with these facts beforo
them instead of utilizing tho system
they possessed legislated it out of existence. What did they ask for? And
what did they get in return? Two
additional Supreme Court judges at
§4000 each—$8000, leaving a clear
annual loss to the province of §7,725
—besides doing away with six excellent Dominion offices for the young
men of the province, and destroying
the opportunity qf 'having throughout
the province, paid fa-by the Diminion,
the very atipendiaty magistrates ashed
for by the QmndJJury of New West-
minsUr. If atftA^jftwrs are now
appointed they must be paid for bg the
province. We have now to ask Mr,.
Brown, tho late member of tho local
legislature and a man with an itch for
being one of the representatives in the
House of Commons, what he has to
say to tho grand jury nnd voters of
Now Westminster for annually depriving tho provinco of this $7,725 ? We
have to ask Messrs. Drummond, Wil-
lirms and Wilson, tho intelligent representatives of Victoria, what they lmvo
to say for this excellent financial
arrangement ? We have to ask Mr.
Abrams, from Nanaimo, how much
his district hits benefitted by this loss
to the provinco? And Messrs. Brown
nnd Saul, tho .representatives from
LUlunet, whether 4110)' do nut think
peace and good order would have been
bettor preserved by,'two or threogood
stipendiary magistrates along the line
of railway works—say one nt Now
Westminster, one at Vale, one at
Clinton, and one nt Lytton—than having a judge of tlio Supreme Court to
reside at Gariliiio, with a year's work
tho disposal of two Chinese cases'/
For that is what rumor gives tn the
extent of tho services required of Mr.
MoOrelght. As the coming session of
tho legislature will ltd its lust, we propose to place hofurcthe public a review
of its legislation during tho last four
years, in order that iu the choice of
their next representatives tho people
may know tlio extent of tho advantages they have derived from the
present.  ______________
A Wonderful Exhibit.
Who would have imagined (before
reading tlio trade statistics in yesterday's Colonist that from Confederation
to tho 110th June Inst the very large
sum of §4,237,307 in customs duties
was collected at tlio port of Victoria
alone; that tho value of Canadian
goods consumed in tlio province rose
from $22,215 in 1872 to $337,111 in
1881; that tho annual contribution of
the port to the Canadian strong-box,
only §342,400 in 1872, was §589,423
in 1881; that tho value of provincial
products cleared for exportation at this
port in 1872 was only 81,858,050
(which included gl,234,300-in gold,
then one-half of oar production), while
for tito year ending 30th Juno last
thoy had risen to §2,231,554, wliich
figures do not include the value of the
lumber and fish exported from the
customs district of New Westminster.
The most uutiuoable and gratifying
exhibit, however, is that of tho last
half of 1881. For tho Septotuber
quarter we exported 8002,552; and
for tho December quarter, 81,184,048,
making tv total of 81,845,000 for tho
half year. To this should ho added
the (approximate) value of the lumber
exported from Burrard Inlet, ?350,-
000, and tlio value (also approximate)
of tho fish exported from New Westminster district, §100,000, which will
swell fie value of tho exports for the
six months ending with tho year just
closed to 82,200,000. It is worthy of
remark that while the yield of gold is
steadily decreasing, tho production of
coal, lish and lumber much more than
make up the deficiency. It is safe to
predict—allowing for ti natural decrease
in the value of exports during tho
half-year that will end with June of
Una present year—that the year's exports will reach nearly $3,200,0001
These figures prove that the province
is striding on to greatness and wealth,
and that there exists no good reason
why tho returns each year should not
show a continued increase. Tho people of the province are to be congratulated on the splendid showing which
it has been our privilege and pleasure
to lay before them. —Colonist,

It is understood that tho C. F. It.
Syndicate are about to issue new
maps, exhibiting tlio abandoned portions of tlm old lino, as located under
Snndfoi'tl Fleming, and tho now, ns
located by their own Engineers. It
is nlfio understood that the map will
indicate tlie southern pass through
tlio Rocky Mountains, tho Rodgors
route through an imaginary pass in
tho Se'kirk range, and the middle
route via Burnaby Lake to English
Bay. We may be permitted to express tbo opinion that the determination to issue such u map is altogether "too previous," as our'cousins
across the line would express it.
About the practicability of the
southern pass through tho Bookies
thero can bo no doubt. Tlio existence of such a pass wns known
perfectly well long before thero was
any Syndicate. But that pass cannot be made available for the 0. P.
B. unless a pass through tho Selkirk
range can be found ; and tlioso best
qualified to give nn opinion do not
believe that such a pass will be
found. A large and efficient stuff of
engineers spent several seasons
amongst the mountains, examining
the various posses and routes, and
the general conclusion was in favor
of Yellowhond. Mr. Rodgers, an
«ntire stranger to the country, came
along with plenty of pluck and an
inexhaustable stock of confidence,
and he proposed to himself to accomplish, with two Indians, in a
few weeks, more than had ever been
done by a full party in a whole
season. Upon the map ho marked
his mighty camping places nt arbi-
tary distances of fifteen miles apart
all through the mountain region,
and counted with mathematical
accuracy the number and locality of
the deer and other game to be
brought to pot by his unerring rifle,
which was to be relied upon to pro
vide the expedition with food. Although the programme of this
intrepid explorer underwent considerable modification ere penetrating
the trackless forest and mountain
fastnesses, there is good reason for
believing that lie has retired into
winter quarters a wiser man. After
all that has been done and said, it is
not at all impossible that, iu the
main, the Syndicate will yet have to
fall back upon the Fleming route.
Whatever deviation may be made
from it on tho other side of tho
Rocky Mountains will probably be
in search of better land; but, so
far as this side is concerned, nature
will bo found to bo more arbitrary.
In so far as the interests of this
Province are concerned, they would
probably bo best promoted by the
adoption of the southern route, and
we should certainly not regret the
discovery of a practicable pass
through the Selkirk range; but we
must confess that we dp not expect
such a discovery to be made, und
without it tho southern route becomes simply an impossibility,
The Blotch.
Kootenny is WalkaoVs pet borough, and he may well feel proud of
it. It does him infinite credit, Its
scoro or so of electors enjoy the
privilege of selecting from amongst
thoir number one-twelfth part of tlio
Legislature, and that twelfth is
always solid forWalkem. Iu that
interesting borough authority smiles
complacently on villainy, on occasion
taking a hand in the game. A
zealous, unoffending and peace-loving
Roman Catholic missionary amongst
the Indians is mercilessly persecuted,
brutally assaulted and openly robbed ; and to such an extent have
.these outrages been carried that the
necessity of abandoning the field
And tlie fruits of a decade of as-
fl id ions and successful missionary
labor is seriously contemplated.
.Appeal after appeal has been made
to the Executive authority at James
}3ay for protection or redress, Finding that Her Majesty's mails no
longer afforded a safe channel of
communication, the persecuted mis-
(denary attempted to transmit his
letter* by a private courier; but the
courier was followed and tho documents found upon him destroyed.
At length, despairing of success in
Any other way and feeling that his
Jife was scarcely safe, tho vonerable
Father set out on a toilsome and
costly journey to Victoria, personally to lay his case before the Executive and seek protection. Arriving at Victoria, the travel-worn
missionary presented himself before
the greijt Mikado at James Buy,'
and respectfully stated his grievance. How was he received ? With
cold and haughty scorn, even to
insult! By importunity, however,
lift finally succeeded in inducing him
so far to relax as to promise that
tlie matter would bo enquired into,
and, with a heavy heart and weary
step, the missionary returned to his
distant station. Whether or not
that promise was kept it is of little
importance to enquire. It is enough
to know that no improvement lias
marked tho conduct of tho worthy
representatives of a most worthy
Qoveriimont, The same arrogant
and insulting demeanor, the same
winking at outrage, characterises
those who should be a terror to
evil-doors and a protection to those
who do well ; and now the poor
heart-sick missionary writes to say
that he is in utter despair, that
there is neither protection for life nor
property, and that everything is
dono that evil men can deviso tc
■hinder his work and drive him from
his post. And still the Mikado sits
smiling to himself, whilo his fitting
and faithful representatives continue
their work of cruel persecution and
outlawery. Wc aro well aware that
the kept papers of the Government
will denounce this as an ingeniously
contrived story, intended to servo
party purposes ; but wc have only to
state that tho picture herein presented is even less dark than that
which wo have before us from the
missionary's own pen ; and when we
remind our retidei:s that the mission
ary is none other than our old-time
and universally respected fellow-
citizen, Father Fouquet, no one will
question ■the truthfulness of the
sketch. Who shall say that, under
the present administration, Kooteuay
has not degenerated into a blocth
upon tho fair face of this winsome

Editorial Notes.
In the presentment of tho Grand
Jury in this city at tho last assizes, tho
authorities wore blonied for having
made no adequate ollbrt to trace tlie
murder of John Colder, in the lower
part of tbo city, last summer. Some
ono in Court on behalf of the Government nnimbled something about due
effort having boon made, but that could
not alter the facts. That thero was no
effort worthy of the name is an undoubted fact, and the public well know
it. It seems almost incredible that so
cold-blooded a murder of one so well
known could bo perpetrated right in
this town, ur.d no attempt bo made to
reach the murderer. For some time
past an amazing amount of indifference
in such cases has been manifested by
the present Government. The bodies
of murdered men and women aro
tumbled into their narrow homes with
as little consideration ns if they wero
dead dogs, and scarcely a question ask-
od as to how it oatuo ibuut.
Ex-Secretary Blaine's wild theory,
based upon the Monroe Doctrine, is
severely criticised abroad. It is oven
ridiculed at homo. The. London New.i
alludes to the proposition that tlio absolute, sovereignty of the United States
over the Isthmus canal should be eon-
ceded by tlio nations, as "a dream beyond tlio domain of politics."' It is
contended that Great Britain, with her
widosproftding possessions and enormous carrying trade, has really a larger
interest in the canal than the United
States. Tho Now York Post learns
from tho bast informed diplomatic circles at Washington that Blaine's pose
Wl that subject excited astonishment
and ridicule, and that no serious results were to be apprehended, simply
because the solid good-sense of tho
American Nation did not go with him,
and that thero was a sigh of relief at
tho capital on finding tho state department again in charge of a man who
will lie inclined to adopt a diplomatic
policy conformable to tho spirit and
traditions of Seward and Fish and
EVM'ts,

The Election rou Mayor.™Voting
for Mayor for this city took place on
Thursday, Mr. Peele being Returning
Oilicer. Very little interest appears
to have been taken in the contest,
only 108 votes, or about, ono-half of
tho voting power, having been polled;
Of these 45 woro cast for Mr. Ferris,
and 58 for Dr. Mclunes, thus electing
thu latter by a majority of 13. Thoro
is no reason to doubt that Dr.
Mclnnes will make a good Mayor, and,
with such a Coum-il as has been oloctod,
we look forward hopefully to tho administration of civic affairs during the
year upon which we aro entering. Litigation and over-taxation are the two
rocks to bo avoided by our city fathers.
The Human Remains.
On Wodnosday we mentioned tho
finding of human remains on Lulu
Island, ft few miles below this city.
On Thursday Coroner Trow went down
to the locality, taking with hima jury.
The remains were lying partly in a
email streamlet on Lulu Island, about
a mile and a half from the upper end
and about sixty foot distant from tho
shore of the middle channel. Thu
greater part of the flesh had been
devoured by animals, ami many of tho
bones were detached and scattered
around, some missing altogether. Thu
skull lay shattered in half a doram
pieces, affording, us one would think,
positive evidence of foul play. Having collected tho fragments of the
skull, tho upper nnd lower jaws and
aomo other bones, together with a
quantity of the hair, a shoe, and portions of the eluthiug"-tho Coroner and
jurors having inadb such examinations
of the ground as were deemed necessary—the Coroner brought them to
the city, and they lie at his oflico for
identification; Tlio enquiry wns adjourned, and will probably be resumed
this afternoon. Thero is every reason
for believing the remains to be those
of a middle-aged white man, who
came to his death by violence, and tho
eircuuistanco of the rem 11119 being on
the middle channel disconnects the
affair with the mysterious disappearance of a Swede from a wood scow,
during 0110 night, last spring, while
moored in tiiu North channel.
Ho for Yale!—It is expected that
tho steamer tteUance will bo ready for
service on or about Tuesdiy next, and
we btdiovu it is on the cards that sho
shall leave for Yalo on Wednesday, or
as soon thereafter as may consort with
tho arrival from San Francisco of the
ftteamship Victoria, Should thu weather and water continue favorable it is
not improbable that the Reliance may
make moro than one trip to Yale dur-
thc present month.
Human Skeleton.—Our attention
was, on Thursday last, directed to a
very complete skeleton of a full sized
man, recently received from New York
by Dr. L, It, Mclnnes of this City.
We understand thu skeleton will bo
used by tho Doctor for the purposes
of illustration in his lectures to the
students of tho High Collegiato School,
on the subject of anatomy, and thoro
can be no doubt that it will add vory
much to thu interest and success of
the study*

The Mathqui Dyke.—-Oh Wednesday we mentioned,0 rumor to tho effect
that the dam in tho Matsinu Slough
bad given way. Wo are in receipt of
a telegram from Matsqui, giving the
rumor an authoritative and emphatic
denial. There would appear to bo too
much reason to suspect that "the
wish was father to tho thought" with
tho originator of the rumor, Any failure in the dyke in question would be
very much to be regrottod, as, if successful, it will bo the means uf reclaiming much valuable laud.
What Shall We Do Willi TUcm?
As announced in these cohuuiia, a
short timo ago, tho C. P. B. contractor iu this Province has mado arrangements for importing direct from Hong
Kong, in tho early spring, five thousand Chines;!, to be employed on tho
Emory-Savon a section of the road.
Should the Hmory-Sua section bo
placed under contract this year there
Beams to be every probability of tho
contractor for that section having ro-
courso to similar moans for manning
his works. It may bo worth while
just to reflect for a moment, upon tho
situation. Ten thousand Chinese, rank
from tho Flowery Kingdom, suddenly
thrown in amongst a white population
numbering about half as many! How
shall our laws bo enforced? How
shall our per capita tax bo collected ?
How much real benefit shall wo derive
from railway construction I It has
been scon with what difficulty less than
0110 thousand Chinamen have been
managed on the railway works during
Iho past year. What shall we do with
tun thousand? Publicists who in
earlier times deprecated tho influx of
this class and advocated tho adoption
of preventive measures. wero put
down as cranks or demagogues; but
tho time may bo nearer than moat
people think when Columbia shall
have occasion to regard railway construction by Chinese as a questionable
good. It seems to be in vain that we
appeal to tho Governments t(> join in
some concerted scheme for providing
another class uf labor, and saving the
country from being ruined by this
Asiatic wavo which threatens lo roll
in upon us. Those iu whose hands are
the destinies of empire on this side of
tho Rooky mountains appear to bo
perfectly indifferent to its fate in this
respect

and operations for reopening thorn

at one timo among the richest on tho

to find tho lost heron lead 011 Crouso

very pleasant, with little snow.
Changes for tlie Better,
Months ago tho membors of our
clujin-gang wero at work. A gent toman occupying a position of influence
happened to pass that way. Recognising" two old pals in tho gang, he
asked them how they came to bo thoro*
Thoy told him their story and com"
plained about having to go out to work-
'Til see you don't," ho said; andJio
did. After that no 0110 serving for a
first pilenso went to work; but thb
result was that tho cells were full of
knaves who ato the bread of idleness
—spent a lazy life at tho expense of
the rate-payer. Quito recently this
has boon changed, and all have to
work. During the past fow years Iho
labor of tho convicts has been under
tho direct control of the member for
tho city, and it litis not at all times
\1ec11 so directed as to produce the
greatest possible good to tho greatest
number. Now it is, or is to be, placed
at tho disposal of the City Council,
and there seems to bo good reason to
hope that it will contribute much more
largely to tho improvement of thu city.
Under tho present arrangement, by
which all male convicts must work, the
force is very much increased, and it is
all tho more important that tho lalmr
of these unfortunate poople should be
wisely directed. Wo lmvo confidence
that it will be so directed by the
Council.
virtuous ImUguiition.
The editor of tho Guardian in tlio
character of the champion of virtue is
a spectacle for which tho poople of this
city wore scarcely prepared. A good
old book tells us that Statnn himself
sometimes appears as an angel of light;
but with what poasililo arts could tho
editor of tho organ hope successfully
to accomplish such a transformation!
It will not take. People in this country may havo rough ways and rough
exteriors, but they aro very quick to
discern between gold and brass. Thero
are few in this city who do not know
that the picture of social life touched
upon by Mr. Kennedy iu his address,
although perhaps too highly culurod,
is 111 many respects less "disgusting thiiii
the actual facts. The records of our
Police. Courts, if published, would reveal something which might possibly
cast a shadow upon the white robe of
virtue so lately assumed by thu organ.
But he need not even go to the Police
Court. Nearer his own door ho may
find a phase of social life tho details
of which can not have escaped his
110'ice. Is it the duty of tlio press
and those aspiring to public positions
to cover up these disgraceful practices ?
Wo have not so loarnud it. It is by
making public the unsightly evil that
popular sentiment u brought up to
that point whore a refusal to apply tho
remedy would bo dangerous. Wo are
not nt all iu sympathy with the spirit
uf Mr, Kennedy's address. It was
his own affair, published over hU.own
mtmo and paid for the same as any
other similar manifesto. I5ut tho
(iditor of tho organ has pounced upon
jt as an immoral and infamous document which no re peetable ucwspiper
would admit into its columns. Tho
object of the attack ia twofold.; the
editor hates Mr. Kennedy like poison,
and bates the Columbian worse than
poison; and thero seemed to him an
opportunity of getting a slap at two
birds with 0110 stone. But if it was
so very bad for tho C6r.imwiAS to publish Mr. Kennedy's address as a paid
advertisement, was it not also bad for
tho organ to publish tho worst parts
of it freo gratis ? Come, now, you
Organ-, can two blacks makoono white?
In his fit of virtuous indignation the
editor stands up and howls »t tho
OoLt'MlitAN for admitting into its columns the very passages which ho himself copies, and thou expresses a fear
that, they may create wrong ideas in
(lis minds of our wives and sisters!
Surely .no sane man could act the lunatic with greater perfection. What
sort of wives and sisters does this man
think belong to the city of New Westminster I If ho had said Nieces!
ho might have boon understood. Hut,
really, the climax of hypocritical cant
is reached when this fellow refers to
tlie placard and "Billy tho Kid." The
book is one which we have never seen
and never expect to see. From the
organ's solemn groans in reference to
it wo are led to suppose it ia a very
bad book—worse than Mr. Kennedy's
address. But what on earth has tltis
to do with tho discussion? Unless
the Guardian had mentioned this
"Hilly tho Kid" iu its columns, we
venture to believe there are not a
dozen people iu the city who could
say thoy ever hoard of the book. But
the Columbian did not sell the book,
nor did it advertise it, nov do wo bo-
lievo there is or ever has been a copy
of it offered for sale at any of the
stores, Tlm organ says theae bad
books are "still for sale/' Let him
say whore! and whenever ho fouls disposed again to put on a mask, for pity's
sake let him assume some character
moro in keeping with his well-known
habits, and let him remember that Iho
very host, precepts may bo more than
counterbalanced by the contagion of
an infamous example.

Kfliitciijiy.
A correspondent, writing on thu 7th
ult., says:—
"Tho mines on Wild Horse Creek
did not turn out very well, on account
of the early cold snap, which put a
sudden stop to mining operations, and
times here wero never duller than thoy
havo boon this fall. Tho winter thus
far has been mild, but to-day tho
snow falls pretty freely. Calbraith

"The Itodgera brothers, of the Syndicate survey, passed down lately.
Thoy appear to bo confident of a good

Tho lottor concludes with an account
of tho state of affairs at Kootenay,
which would appoar fully to justify the
severest strictures that havo been published uncut tho doings of tho Government Agent and the ring with whom
ho is identified.

THE ENCHANTED PRINCESS
(Concluded.)
She waved her white hand tu me,
and disappeared into her room, nnd I
wont back into mine, It will be imagined that I slept but little on that
night; indeed, I never even thought uf
lying down, but sat expectant and listening alt through the long hours of
the night. Nella had dune right in
advising mo to barricade my door.
Towards 4 o'clock in the morning I
hoard stealthy footsteps creeping along
the passage outside, nnd thou somo in
struuient was inserted into tho luck,
whieh would inevitably have opened
the door had I trusted to the key
alone, I heard a whisper—a slight
pushing against tlio dour. I rusu
breathlessly, prepared tu sell my life
dearly; but|wheMier tho villains fem-ed
to arouse tho old servant by the noise
thoy would have made in throwing
down tho p'ded-up fundi urn, or whether they guuiied that I was awnko and
on the alert, end would defend myself,
certain it is that ..ftor a doubtful pause
tho door-hanilli! was softly drawn tu
again, and the footsteps erupt away
again down tho passage, and disturbed
me no more.
With morning light I heard renewed
footstops about the house. It was as
Nella had said; tho threo men were
preparing to go forth and worship their
Maker on the day of days in the Christian's your.
Tho loud clanging of tho house-door
told mo they had gone; and presently
peeping forth from behind my curtains,
I perceived threo dark figures wrapped
in long cloaks making their way, one
after the other, among the pine-trees
across the snow.
An instant after three loud taps from
tho room above warned mo that Nella
was ready to stnrt,
I met her in the long stone passage.
She was arrayed in a lung fur cloak,
with a hood over her head; but tho instant I saw her face I knew that something had gone wrong.
"For Heaven's sake what Is it ?" I
cried.
"We aro undone!" she exclaimed.
"There is no hope for us! Look!
Look!"
She seized my hand, and drew mo
into another room ou the opposite side
of the castle, pointing out of tho window wildly. For a few minutes I saw
nothing; but at length I noticed two
deep ruts of wheels iu the snow winding away amongst the trees, The
truth burst upon me at once. The
wagon had already left,
"Wo are lost!" cried Nella, aobbing-
ly.   "Our last hope has gone!"
At this momont we heard the sound
of quick, stamping footsteps in the
passage behind us. Little Fritz came
into the room. He uttered an exclamation of delight upon seeing Nella,
and began rapidly talking to her on
his fingers. He, like everybody else
in tho house, believed her to be deaf
and dumb.
As he moved his little fat hands
violently backwards and forwards the
trouble and dismay upon N elk's lovely
face vanished. She answered him
with a few signs, looking at me.
"She says I am to tell you," said
Fritz, turning to me, "I was so unhappy because we have no red berries
for Christmas, and because Sant Claua
will pass by to-night and not stop here
at all, if we have nouo hung up at the
foot of our beds. But now I know of
n way to go to Dornhof, where they
can be bought in the simps. Grandfather, and undo, and old Stephen are
out, and tho woman who sells us
chickens about a mile off hai promised
that h#r husband shall drive me to
Dornhof in his sledge and be beck bo-
fore mass is over; and they will never
find out that I have been away. See!
I have stolen the key of the little back
door from under Stephen's pillow. I
Want Nella to come with me; it will
be such a bit of fun for her. It is
only a mile to walk to tho old woman's;
and she has never seen Dornhuf and
the shops—it is such a tine town!
Don't you think she could walk as far
as that ? And she needn't be frightened, fur we shall be back long before
they are home from mass; tho sledge
goes like tho wind!"
Dear little fat, pudgy Fritz! Did I
ever love an ugly little boy before so
much ?
"Come," I said, "we will all go."
So that was how—thanks to Fritz—
wo accomplished our escape, after all,
in the most natural and unseusational
manner in the world. The walk across
the snow was the most trying part of
the business, for Nella was far from
strong and unaccustomed to walking.
But once at the house of the small
farmer who owned, or rather who had
borrowed the sludge, all went well.
Twice a year, on Easter-day and Christmas-day, this good man borrowed a
hone and cart, and drove into Dornhof to attend high mass in the cathedral there. Had it not been on one
of those feasts uf tho church, wo
should never havo boon able to get
away from Count Errenholt's house,
We have certainly cause for deep
gratitude that Christ mas-day and Fritz'
red berries assisted us so materially in
effect ing our escape.
Nella is now my wife; and little
Fritz, who lives with us in Hampshire
as our own child, has never quite got
over the nsto;iishmont with which he
discovered that Nella could talk and
hear as well as himself
The palaeo of the Count von Errenholt is, I bolieve, pulled down, and he
and his son havo been brought to the
justice which they so richly deserved.
This righteous retribution overtook
them in consequonco of the information whieh I immediately thought it
my duty to supply to tho police authorities concerning them.
Often we talk, seated by our own
fireside, of that weird and desolate
palace in the fastnesses of those wild
pine-forests, and breathe a prayer of
thankfulness on each succeeding Christmas day for our safe deliverance from
all its dangors and terrors. Nella says
the whole story of our courtship reads
like a fairy story, and she calls me the
Knight of the Golden Spurs who came
to the castle of the ogre to save her.
And then laughingly I draw her lovely
face down upon my shoulder, and ask
her where would the knight be had he
not found and carried off his Enchanted Princess!

A Romance In Skeleton.
A calm, delightful autumn night—
A moon's mysterious golden light—
A maiden at her window height,
In robes of pure and fleecy white.
The little wicket gate ajar—
A lover tripping from afar,
With tuneful voice and light guitar,
To woo his radiant guiding star,
A lute with soft, insidious twang—
Oli, how the doting lover sang—
A bull dog, with remorseless fang—
A nip, a grip, a deathly pang.
A maiden with a startled glance—
A shrieking for deliverance—
A kind of weird, hilarious dunce—
A pair of riven doeskin pants.
A maiden fainting with affright—
A lover iu a sickening plight—
A bull dug chuckling with delight—
A wild, delirious autumn night!

A deputation consisting of Rev. Dr.
Potts, Rev. Dr. Southerland and Mr.
A. Farley, of Toronto, waited on the
Premier in connection with thoir application for 2,000,000 acres of land
for the purpose of establishing a temperance colony in tho North West.
The particulars of the scheme wore
published some time since. Sir John
promised to give tho matter his attention. It is thought that the request
will bo granted.
Results of Sobriety.—The Hon.
Wm. E. Dodge, United States Senator,
has shown that in Maine before prohibition there was one drunkard fur
every fifty-five of tlio population, and
one million gallons of spirits were distilled annually, whilo the liquor bill
amounted to 10,000,000, dols. Since
prohibition there is not a distillery or
brewery in the state, the recent sale
of liquor amounting to tho merest
fraction of tho former quantity sold;
whereas the death rate has been reduced
from fifty-five to one in three hundred
of her population.
Churchill Harbor, on Hudson Bay,
to which point the C. P. R. Syndicate
it is thought will build a branch, is
reported to be excellent and available
for vessels drawing thirty feet of
water, without any outlay except that
required for tho construction of
wharves. Ifc in within four hundred
miles of tho great wheat and cattle
raising territories of tho North-West,
and is a hundred and twenty miles
nearer to Liverpool than New York is,
Tho Syndicate is understood to bo satisfied of the practicability of the navigation of Hudson Bay and Straits for
a season long enough to make this a
favorite route between the interior
plains and England,
Prince Leopold.—A Into cablegram
says:—"Prince Leopold's betrothal to
the Princess Huleno uf Waldeek causes
surprise, as thero were whispers of his
intention to marry in tlie British peerage. The entourage of the Court wore
aware that ho had gone to tho Continent to select n bride. The general
public have regarded his health ns a
bar to matrimony. He sutlers frequent attacks of hemorrhage from
pores through defects of the skin,
weakening tho whole tone of his system. His intellectual taste, culture
and geniality make him popular. Tho
public are glad to regard this step ns a
sign of improving health, and in his
case prefer that he should marry a
princess rather than a British subject,
If the prince married a commoner, as
her husband ho would bo compelled to
show publicly his wife's inferiority on
all occasions of precedence.

engraved:—
Quando Marcus Pascha dabit,
Et Autumns Peiitccostcn eelcbrubit,
Et Joannes Christum adorabit,

This means that when Easter falls

and Corpus Christ! on St. John the
Baptist's day, 24th June, all tho world

Unlike Yeimor, our Gorman seer
