The Italian government hits recently published some interesting
figures which go far to show the
progress education has made in that
country within' a very few years.
The budget of public instruction
has risen from 16,300,000 in 1871
to 30,400,000 in 1883; the number
of schools from 21,353 in 1861 to
42,510 in 2881; and the number of
pupils in the same time from 1,008,-
674 to 4,928,700. There are, moreover, 701 gymnasiums or secondary
schools with 3,674 professors and
41,124 scholars, and having a five
years' course of study. Above
these again are 298 colleges with
1,601 professors and 11,133 students, and a three years' course of
study. There are also 383 technical schools, with an attendance of
22,120. Lastly come the Royal
Universities, 18 in number, registered in 1881, 10,502 students.
The two most important are Turin
with 2,651 students, and Naples
with 2,851. In addition to all these
thero are 21 high schools and independent universities with un aggregate of 1,948 students.

A Montreal dispatch snys: There
is a report in railway circles and
among politicians to-day, that the
syndicate are trying to come to
some terms with the Montreal
Ocean Shipping Co. for the use of
several of their steamers for tlie
Chin ii-Japan trada The story is
given prominence to in an article
today in the Times, in which it
points out that Sir John and Mr.
.Stephen are endeavoring to negotiate a loan of 810,000,000, with
.the aid of Mr. Andrew Allan,,who,
for the use of some of the Allan
stoumerR, is to be1 recouped with
4,000,000 acres of picked land:in
the northwest, and to tlie building
of his northwest railway, a guaran*-
tee of 2_- per cent interest on the
loan of $10,000,000 is to be secured
by the Allan Co, It is also said
that the Dominion government will
be asked to give a subsidy for the
steamship line to Japan from §250,-
000 to ^400,000 per annum. As a
prominent politician and railway
man said to-day, this scheino will
consolidate the C, P. R. and Montreal Ocean Steamship Oo. and
make it -he strongest monopoly in
the world, able to dictate terms to
all the United States lines nud the
government
The result is not a mere party vie
tory. There is no reason to doubt
that Mr. Cleveland comprehends
fully the circumstances under wliich
he has been elected. Those circumstances secure to him a freedom of
action which is most desirable in
the situation, but • which other conditions in the campaign and the
election would have seriously limited. Mr. Cleveland is attached to
his party, but his whole career
proves his profound conViction of
the truth of his remark that public
office is a public trust. Tlie trust
which has been confided Ao him is
that of clean and upright administration upon principles -and by
methods which he has already shown
that lie approves, The old tradition of parties that a change of
administration imports a olean sweep
of the civil service ia uot fUrndition
wliich he has accepted. ' The same
regard for the principle, of.public
office as a public trust which he
hns shown at Albany he will ok
serve in Washington, and all the
more because it is his fidelity to
that principle at Albany which has
really transferred him to Washington. It is a great advantage to the
country that Governor Cleveland
has learned from his official career
that, dependence upon the good
sense and honest patriotism of the
intelligent people is a surer reliance
than subservience to. mere party
politicians.—Harpm''s Weekly,

The election places in the presidency a man whose public career
has made him universally known
as a thoroughly courageous, honest,
and independent magistrate. Ke is
a Democrat, but a Democrat whose
party and political relations have
been little considered in the general
confidence in liis integrity and public Bpirit. He was chosen Mayor
of Buffalo by Republican and Democratic votes; a similar union made
him governor of New York by an
enormous majority; and the same
combination has now elected him
to the presidency. His election
was impossible without the vote of
New York, and his success in Now
York is due to the independent He-
publican vote. The result proves
what tho situation has long suggested, that there is a serious decline of publio confidence in the
Republican party. The vote for
Mr. Blaine in New York would
have shown a startling decrease of
the Republican vote if the loss had
not been supplied by the most disreputable elements of the Democratic vote. Even among those
who voted for Mr. Blaino there
were thousands and thousands of
stanch Republicans who voted with
the utmost reluctance; and Massachusetts, the strongest of Republican states, cast a majority of her
votes against the Republican candidate, and the state was carried by
a meagre plurality only. There was
nothing more striking in the election
than the character of the vote
whioh the Republicans lost and
that which the Democrats gained.
The secession from the Republican
candidate was composed of the
most representative of original Republicans of the highest character,
Intelligence, and patriotism—a secession springing neither from personal feeling, disappointed ambition,
nor eager self-seeking, The folly
of supposing that the objections to
Mr. Blaine's candidacy were of a
kind that would be overlooked by
conscientious Republicans has been
fully demonstrated, and the party
has beeu admonished in the most
impressive manner that there is a
host of Republicans who require
something more than a regular
. nomination to secure their support
Ills Last Bet.
BURDETTE NO LONGER BETS ON ELECTIONS.
I did not bot nny money on the recent election in Ohio, It has heen
many years sinco I upheld my political
principles by coining them for base
drachmas. A drachma, dear, ia a
spud, and a spud is a Lewis door,
which door is un open sesame to the
best society. Yoars ago, whon I was
young and charming, rather a trifle
more young than I was much more
charming, I bet n box of cigars with a
political foe, but an esteemed personal
friend, on the election of Mr. Hayes.
To give htm a bIiow for hia white alloy,
I bet him a hat on thu result in New
York. Tho returns promptly decided
that I lost tlio hat, and tho United
States Congress and the high joint
arbitration commission, after gravoly
considering the question for many
weeks, finully informed me that I hnd
won the box of oigars, I never dreamed
tbat such a simple bet would throw
the republic into such a painful state
of suspense, excitement, and confusion. I said then that nevor again
would I thoughtlessly tamper with the
pence nnd happiness of my-country,
though all my political foos'went bareheaded and I had to pick 'tin stubs for
my personal smoking all the days of
our respective and respected lives,
I paid my hat bet. I went to the
butter with my friend and had his
head blocked for a special order. His
blocked head fairly swam with joy
when I told him I wot going to have a
hat made specially for him. He said:
"Robert—"
The sober, solemn truth ia, he said,
"Bob," but that doesn't look well in
print, and I hate the name anyhow.
"Robert, if you win the cigars,
which Heaven forbid, I will go to Havana and make them myself."
I knew he would not, far better
than he did.   I knew it.
The hat was made under the personal supervision of the hatter, by and
with the advice and eonsent of myaelf.
It was a sleek, shiny hal. It was
about eighteen inches high and as symmetrical as a stovepipe. It was the
same size all the way up. The brim
was about an inch and a quarter wide,
fiat and straight as a silver dollar. It
was the awfullest hat. Strong men
shuddered when they saw it. I don't
believe such a hat ever was mode before, or behind.
Well! I gathered about a score of
our mutual friends. We got the band
out, set the hat on top of a dry goods
box in an open wagon, and paraded
down to my friend's store, and I pre*
sonted the hat with an elaborate and
ornate address. Men said it was the
greatest effort of my life. I think it
was. It not only fatigued me, but
people who heard it said it made them
tired alio.
My friend's remarks in reply were
very brief, but suffused with emotion.
He took the hat, labelled it with my
name, and exhibited it in his window.
When the court of arbitration at
last decided the other bet, the band
and the erowd came out again, and my
foe presented me with a box of cigars.
At the conclusion of the presentation
speech, he proposed that wo smoke
the weed of peace. I could not re*
fuse. I faltered my thanks, llghtotj a
oigar, and puffed twice or thrice.
That waB nearly eight years agono,
and yet sometimes I am aroused from
the profoundest slumber in the dead of
night by the lingering farowell of that
cigar. A policeman, who accidentally
happened to be awake that afternoon,
came along and arrested me on a
charge of disorderly conduct, arson
and assault with intent to commit hydrophobia. The magistrate smelled
my breath as I pleaded not guilty, and
fined me 810. I went homo, and a
committee of my neighbors waited on
me at long range and gave me 24 hours
to leave the State, I left the box of
cigars on the office steps, and two
tramps were fouiid dead beside it next
morning. The board of health filed
information against me for conspiracy,
seized the cigars and throw them into
the Mississippi river. All the fish betweon Burlington and Keokuk died
that week, I took .down my shotgun,
breathed into it, pointed it at a dog
and he turned into a stone. I blew
fiercely down the barrel of tha gun,
intending to hunt for my foe. and the
gun burst on the spot. I—but why
recount the harrowing experiences of
that weok of horror ? I only mention
theae fow leading facts, because Truth
with a big T is so sadly seldom during
this campaign, and I wish to introduce
a little of it to leaven or twelve tho

Wednesday   Morning,   Nov. M,,vm.
The New York Herald's Washington correspondent declares that
$100,000,000 have already been
spent on the Panama canal, and
not one twentieth of the work lias
been done. It is further stated
tliat the collapse of tho company is confidently oxpected. In
that event it may possibly happen
that the isthmus railway scheme
proposed by Oapt. Ends will find
fuvor among capitalists. Ends has
by no means abandoned his scheme,
and it would be a great deal cheaper than the canal,
not, a responsible head somewhere in this provinco to see that
the mail service is arranged so as
to meet tho reasonable requirements
of the country, nnd that tlie contractors perform their duties with
regularity.
The Nanaimo Free Press mentions a most remarkable case of
summary "justice" which it says
occurred at Alberni. An Indian
constable swore out an information
against D. Little, charging him
with having stolen a chain from his
(tlie constable's) house. Two magistrates sat on the case, and heard
the witnesses for the prosecution.
Next day they summoned a jury of
three and proceeded to hear the defence. The jury returned a verdict
of not guilty, and Little was discharged. This kind of court may
possibly answer the purposes of
new settlements, but it is rather
previous. If the Free Press has
fairly stated the circumstances,
these two magistrates deserve immediate promotion.
An American newspaper pertinently remarks that Cleveland as
president of the United States assumes greater responsibilities than
have fallen upon any president
since Lincoln. He has been chosen
as the first distinct representative
of the principle of civil service reform, and at the same timo us the
representative of a party which has
been out of power for a quarter of
a century ! As a party man the
temptation to fill the civil service
with his own party friends will be
almost irresistible; but if lie wishes
to retain the confidence of those
to whom he is chiefly indebted for
his election (tho independent He-
publicans) it will he necessary for
liim to resist the importunities of
party and tho greed of offico-seek-
ers. It is to be hoped the new
president will have the courage to
do right.
Who Runs the Mulls?
It is announced now tliat there
will be only two trains a woek on
this end of the C. P. R. Tlie trains
will arrive at Port Moody on Tuesday and Friday evenings, aud leave
on Wednesday and Saturday mornings. Tho whole mail service of
the mainland, as we anticipated, is
reduced to a semi-weekly affair,
and a very disconnected affair at
that. The arrival and departure
of mails at this city are so beautifully adjusted that it is impossible
to answer a letter from up country
within less than three or four days.
The outgoing mail is closed three or
four hours before the incoming mail
has been distributed—and you must
threfore answer your letter before
you receive it, or miss one mail! It
seems that the convenience of the
carriers alone is being consulted
respecting the mail service. If it
does not suit the railway or the
steamtfoat peoplo to make three
trips a week, they will make two,
and don't care whether it suits public convenience or not. But good
care is always taken to provide Victoria with a daily mail, and even
Nanaimo hus a mail tri-weekly!
And these changes are made with
such suddenness that people are loft
to find out as best they can when
it suits the convenience of the subsidized carriers to run tlieir subsidized conveyances. The change in
the O. P. N. time-table was not advertised on the mainland at all by
the company. We happened to observe a small notice in the Victoria
Colonist, and made mention of it in
our lost issue; if we hod not done
this, very few people on the mainland would have been aware that
any change was contemplated. In
the case of the railway there was
no notice given anywhere ! If tlie
earners have no regard whatever for
the convenience of the people, surely the post-office authorities might
hava They allow the mails to be
whisked about from month to month
until it may be questioned whethor
they themselves can state with any
certainty what days a mail will arrive or leave. Common courtesy
would have pointed out the propriety of giving reasonable notice to
the publio before tlio change was
mnde.   Thero ought to lie, if thore
Jamaica Annexation.
Although tho annexation of Jamaica to Canada may be regarded
as a sort of dead issue, the scheme
having failed in Jamaica itself, the
following extract from a late issue
of tlie  Week will bo read with interest: "In Ontario not a voice was
raised in favor of the now defunct
proposition of   annexing Jamaica.
Government  journals were silent,
though it seems tho government was
inclined  to entertain the scheme.
But   in Halifax advocacy  of the
measure   has been loud.    Halifax
would be the winter, though hardly
the summer, port of the Jamaica
trade;   and   Nova Scotia, utterly
disappointed, os she avows, by tbe
commercial   results  of   the- Confederation   into   which   sho   was
dragged by the hair of the head,
naturally grasps at, nay-promise of
increased prosperity.    But it would
be far better for us, if she is in
sore need, to give her twonty, or
even fifty, million dollars worth of
Better Terms than to take Qunsheo
and his concerns to our arms.   A
correspondent of the London Times,
writing from  St.  Lucia, says that
the condition of the West Indies is
deplorable, and   that nothing can
save them but an Imperial loan; so
that with regard to the financial
consequences of annexation we are
warned beforohand.   And  even if
the burden of  defending the two
thousand miles of water-way could
be entirely thrown on tlie Mother
Country, there are many expenses,
such as harbors, lights, and public
works of all kinds which would certainly fall on the Dominion.   But
tlie political consequences would be
by far the worst.    Can any one
doubt what part would be played
in Canadian politics by a negro delegation, or a delegation mainly elected   by negroes, whose homes and
principal   interests would bo two
thousand miles away?    Wo have
not yet made the people of Nova
Scotia, New Brunswick or British
Columbia Canadians, and how much
chanco would thero be of onr making Canadians qf tho population of
Jamaica.     Only the presence of a
small  aud diminishing number of
whites prevents Jamaica from being a St. Domingo.    A St, Domingo in fact it almost was while it
had responsible government.    It is
now  kept in order, and  peace between the two races is maintained
by the authority or a Royal Governor.   Slavery bus ler't its evil mark
on tlie negroes, who are generally
lazy, while much of  the work is
done by coolies;  and we may feel
-sure that with laziness are combined
ignorance and great indifference to
anything above yams.   The advocates of annexation remind us tlmt
there  is a large negro element ih
the United States.   That might be
a very good reason for not allowing
ourselves  to  be   annexed by the
United States, but it is no reason
for annexing Jamaica.   The cases
however are not parallel.   The negro clement in the South States is
held under by the more civilized
race, while the South altogether is
now politically but a fraction of
the Union; nor is thero anything
that can be called a negro delegation, or   any negro interest to be
bought and sold.   There were some
negro delegates in the Republican
convention at Chicago, and calumny
was busy with their names.    When
St,  Domingo offered itself to tbe
people of  the United States they
steadfastly   refused   to   accept it,
though   President  Grant  pressed
upon thein tho dark boon with nil
liis powers.     Between the Black
Vote and the Blue, it is very likely
that British Canadians would soon
be fain to take refuge in the American Union.    Once more, then, if
Nova Scotia is in great distress, let
us give her Better Terms, but let
us not 1)0 amalgamated with Qua-
slieo.     Happily,   Jamaica   herself
seems at present to be as little inclined to this strange marriage as
Ontario, and Mr. Solomon, on bring
ing the question before the Council
of  the  Island, finds himself   the
only supporter of his owu scheme."
An Explanation.
Chilliwhack and Sumas wero enabled to receive The Columdian
from two to three days earlier than
it would have reached thom by
mail. But the arrangement came
to a most sudden and unexpected
termination last Friday. The packages were taken to the steamboat
office as usual on Friday night, but
on Saturday they came back with an
intimation that the arrangement
could no longer be continued. We
mako this statement so that the
people of Chilliwhack and Sumas
may know why the paper failed to
reach then- as usual on Saturday;
aud we may bo permitted to remark
that common courtesy would have
led the C. P. N. Co. first to notify
this office that the practice of carrying the newspaper must be dis
continued, instead of waiting until
the mail had gone before returning
the packages. We are informed
that this action was taken by the
express orders of Capt. Irving,
manager of the 0. P. N. Co., and
are led to believe that these
orders were given because of the
criticism on mail matters which appeared in this journal lust Saturday.
Moreover, Capt. Irving allowed
himself to be so far influenced by
a foolish resentment against this
journal that he caused an order to
bo made that aU the company's
advertisements should at once be
withdrawn from The Columbian!
Many years ago, when the Toronto
Globe was comparatively a young
newspaper, it fell under the displeasure of the Lake Ontario Navigation Co., whose conduct it had
sharply criticised. The manager of
the company called upon Mr. George
Brown, then editor of the Globe.
Having introduced himself and
mentioned the article of which liis
company complained, he declared
that unless an apology was made he
would cancel all the company's advertisements, Mr. Brown quietly
rang the bell, and when tlie office
boy appeared he said:   "John, go
and put up the shutters; Mr.	
is going to stop his advertisements j"
The impolitic thing attempted' by
the manager of  the L. O. N. Co.
over 2.r) years ago, the manager of
the 0. P. N. Co. seems disposed to
try to-day.    But if ho imagines for
a moment  that by such means he
can prevent freo and fair discussion
iind criticism in this country and
in this age, he will find himself deceived—he has struck the wrong
community and the wrong journal.
It will lio remembered by our readers that. the 'article which seems to
have given such provocation did not
criticise the conduct of the C. P.
N. Co, at all.' It was the wretched
character of the mail service tliat
was denounced, and tha proposal
just made public to reduce the service and make it still more imperfect.     There was not an unkind or
unjust word uttered about the C.
P.  N.  Co., nnd no statement was
made whicli could be twisted into a
reflection upon it.   So long as the
C.  P,  N. Oo. performs the service
it undertakes, all criticism of tho
shortcomings of that service must
be directed  against the post-office
department   and  not against the
company.     We do not know what
is the nature of the mail contract
botween Victoria and this city, or
between this city and the interior.
During tlie past season the service
has undergone so many changes that
it may be doubted if the inspector
himself clearly apprehends the obligations of the contractors.    If it
be true that this city and the mainland is to receive only two mails a
week while Victoria receives a daily
mail and Nanaimo a tri-weekly, we
shall continue to denounce the arrangement as unfair and out of all
proportion to the importance of the
the business requirements of   the
respective routes.     The 0. P. N.
Co.  is not either the worst or the
best corporation in British Columbia, and whilo wo aro always prepared to give it credit for whuterer
enterprise   and   excellence   it lias
manifested,  we   shall criticise   its
conduct whenever we deem it necessary to do so in the public interest.
Capt.   Irving may as well bo informed   that his conduct towards
this journal will have no influence
whatever either to increase or lessen the severity of its criticisms of
himself ane his company.   Wc shall
not suffer the rights of the people
to be despised if we can help it,
and those who stand in the way of
these rights must accept the responsibility of the position.

About a week ago a sloop of throe tons

was sighted next day between Whidby
Island and Port Townsend, sinco which
nothing had been heard of them till
the other day, when a boat answering
the descrtptionof the one that left hero
was picked up on tho Sound. Tho two
whito men were Tom Ryan, who has
been a member of the chaingang here

Painting on tub Buoys.—The govornment steamer Sir James Douglas
came up on Monday morning and left
here yesterday for the sandlieada, Wo
understand that tho purpose of her
present trip is to paint the buoys at the
rivcrmouth and place thom in position
for the winter. It is now over three
months since a new channel was discovered through the aimdhcads, explored, and marked by temporary
stakes. Since that time thero hnve
surely been opportunities enough to
have tho proper buoys painted and
placed in the new ohannul. But the
poisons wIiobo duty it is to attend to
marine matters in this provhiqwire uut
specially noted for promptness. Indeed frequent complaints .have beep.
mado that such matters are grossly neglected, and uf this wo lmvo proof in
the facts abovo stated. Every one
knows thut this is about the. worst possible season to havo the buoys painted.
It is tho Benson of rains and frosts, nnd
rough weather, when the paint will
have nu cbauco to dry so that it may
remain for any length of time. Besides, what has the Sir James Douglas
boen doing all these months that she
has not long ago placed tbe buoys iu
position 1 Several times during the
summer steamers have beeu detained
at the sandheads because the channel
was not properly defined, and this has
served both to injure ttado and damage the reputation of the river. Such
things should not be permitted, and
will not much longer be tolerated. The
buoys at the mouth of this river Bhould
be under the control of some person on
the mainland, and until thia ii done we
shall probably continue to sutler tho
'inconveniences which have produced
ao muoh dissatisfaction among mainland merchants.
The Ostrich Fnrm.
Some timo ngo Tub Coluuuian published a description of the experimental
ostrich farm established by Cnl. Skutch-
ly in California. Later reports seem,
to indicate that tho experiment is likely to prove a success. A gentleman
who recently visited the farm says :
" Theso immense birds nro kept in
yards or enclosures, one male and two
females occupying a place together, A
common board fence, higher than the
ordinary, surrounds each corral and
divides them. There is a space or open
lane between the penB—a driveway for
teams and to carry food to the birds.
They eat a wagon-load of Bhells in oue
day, besides a largo amount of coarse
food, vegetables, alfalfa or clover-grass,
etc. Tho cost of each ia 91,000, nnd
their weight is from 300 to 400 pounds.
They lay 75 egus each year, each egg
valued at $100, Their feathers are
plucked twice a year; they are on tlie
tail and wings of the birds, the body
boing nearly bare. Each plucking aver-
ages $300. Tho eggs weigh two and ouo
half pounds eaoh. The male is black,
the tail and wing feathers being white,
and the female a grayish white. It requires four strong men to hold one nf
these pets while plucking their plumes.
It seems a cruel pmces*, and no wonder
the birds resist so hard. They are savage and dangerous if attacked, and can
only be handled after a sack or stocking

They drive them into  a corner and

more direct course. Oapt. Ends himself says that-this is Bure to be the result unless something is immediately
done to prevent it. Already one-
fourth of tho water iu the Mississippi
passes into Red river, and thence into
Atchafalaya. Tho river commission is
called upon to stop tho flow of Red
river into tho Atchafalaya, and thus
compel tho waters of the Red and the
Mississippi to pass down the old bed
by Now Orleans, and out to sea
through the jetties. It is claimed that
the commission is dilatory in the matter, although it has recoived Congressional instruction to close the inlot of
the Atchafalaya. As can he readily
seon, a new direction of the Mississippi
that shall leave New Orleans at one
side—an inland port, aa it were—
would bo a great calamity to the crescent metropolis. Besides, it would
destroy the scheme, begun by Capt,
Eads, and now being carried out by
the Rivor Commission, of confining
the river to its original channel by a
system of revetment levees, etc., aud
thus preserving a deep channel for
navigation.

from bleeding to death. They cannot
fly or jump, but can keep puce with the

taken a tierce dislike to the smilo of
the heathen Chinee, and is so taken up
with its efforts to attack him thnt men
slip in unnoticed aud take possession
of the eggs. The life of an ostrich extends beyond that of human buingB,
and averages one hundred years. The
plumes can bo purchased-singly by
visitors, the price depending upon the
length aud thickness uf them. They

'Corrt-spnmli'liee of thi' i'ulnmMnii.1
It is assumed by some that our lot
is cast in a slow, prosaic ngo, that the
chivalrous spirit of former times is all
but extinguished. Incidents. occur,
however, even now, which show that
the' spirit of chivalry is not dead but
Bleeping; and although'it is fortunately
somewhat diflicult to rouse, that spirit
is still as wicked as ever. Scott, had
he lived uow, would occasionally find
sufficient material for romance, Not
many miles from your city, at a placo
called Maple Ridge, the Red Cross was
Circulated on Friday, and in obedience
to the call the chiefs suddenly mot,
and tho eucounter was such as will
not be forgotten. In 15 minutes the
battle-field was stained with blood.
The weapons used woro those made by
nature—the fists. The combatants
hammered ono another until their
pugilistic powers were exhausted. A
noted feature of the drama was that
the clans kept aloof nnd allowed the
chiefs to fight the battle. A great
number of innocent lives would be
spared Bhould this plan bo adopted in
all tho wars, It would also save
money, as the use of weapons would
be dispensed with. But, by the way,
some of tho parties engaged itt the
combat hero were led to understand
that John Bull is jealous of his own
right to declare and carry on war, und
that he would uot nut up with any
such usurpation of hia powor. His
wrath was, however, appeased when
the guilty parties were mode either to
pay a fine or go to jail.

From ttie Toron to Globe,
Perhaps the moBt artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piauo Company
of Bowmanville, It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music aa being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
tlie requirements of the company, which
hail beon cramped for room iu the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of htjjV-clasB Instruments. Tlie
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds Tor their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect,'and purchase prov. a
beyoud question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Hero a crowd may be
seen listeuing to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, ita day of smalt
things. It had Its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W, S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus waB
given tn the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, aud the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by 260 hands, who receive in wages
about 915,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of tho Company's workmanship. An npright piano
of burr walnut Ib a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against tho side
wall of a room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. I'ho
square grand is finished ou all sides, nro-
scuts a ■ handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing wltlt oil for hours. The touch' is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the bost
American pianos.
The organs made by tho Company ure
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to 91,000. Many
sample organs are shown In the pavilion.
The largest organ whieh the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected hero at the
end of the weok. It is arranged to lio
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of tho big Instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
Sarlor favorite. The cose* show won*
erful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship,
The case whioh secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia Is atill much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design and artistic in execution. Tho musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweet*
ness of tone and elasticity of touch thoy
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge ns to tho beauty
aud style of the casos.
[T. R. Pearson k Co., New Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organs

to purchase should not 'ail to communicate with them, Bamph organs on view.

Some Undiscovered Truths.
The following is a synopsis of an address delivered by Prof. Dawson, the
Canadian scientist, before the American
Association for the Advancement of Science, the aubject being "Some Undiscovered Truths ol Geology":
In such a wide-sweep we need not be
surprised to learn that there are yet seme
unsolved problems. We are met at tbe
outset with an Inquiry as to a man's
place in the nature he is to study. His
organism is certainly a part of nature;
and he is the terminal link of along chain
of being. As a scientific animal, man
finds within himself a mind more potent
than matter, and that reacts bn nature.
We recognize this difficulty when we
divide science into experimental and observational. It does little good to meet
mysteries hy guesses, nor should we on
the other haml resign ourselves to ignorance. We must wrestle with the unsolved questions of nature, mastering
what wo oa i, and leaving others to be
grappled with by our successors. In
proceeding to mark out the terms of as*
certaiued knowledge, the speaker began
with the oldest rooks, a formation of immense thickness, and corresponding to
what used to be called fundamental granite. He intimated his belief that this
was deposited as gneiss from a shoreless
ooean. The Lower Laureutlan rooks
probably limit our progress backward,
beyond which lie only physical hopothe-
see as to a cooling imandescent globe,
Ascending, we meet with significant
changes. Beds of limestone are associated
with the beds of gneiss, Gravel beds
show the existence of shores; and
graphite inform* na of tome tort of plant
life, and Iron ores of organic matters.
In tlie Middle Laurentian appeared the
Eozoon Canandense, probably the oldest
form of life of whioh we have any knowledge. Metamorphlsm next came into
play. Nothing in geology perishes. Heat
may change clays into slates, and limestone into marbles; but nothing wholly
disappears. A great battle rages over
the genealogy of the rooks, the steps of
which Dr, Dawson sets forth, claiming
that the sudden incoming of life in varied
forms baffled biologists and furnished an
unsolved problem. The theories of evolution'aro insufficient to account for it.
The process still is as mysterious as ever,
mid a great gap is left in our accumulated
knowledge.
Suppose that we start, however, with
a number of organisms ready made; we
ask, how can tliese have varied so aa to
give us new species I It is a singular allusion that variation may be boundless,
aimless and fortuitous, and that develop*
ment arises from spontaneous selootion.
Varieties must have causes, and the vast
and orderly succession of nature must be
regulated by fixed laws, only a few of
which are yet known to us. One consideration showing how imperfect are
our attempts to reach the true causes of
genera and species, is tlio remarkable
fixity of leading types. Trace certain
forms of lifo along their own line through
stupendous vicissitudes and across the
ages, and you find them substantially
unchanged. Examples are the foliage
and fructification of mosses, the venation
of wings of insects, the structure and
form of snails; all of which were settled
in the carboniferous age.
Huxley holds that there are but two
possible alternatives' on to the origin of
species viz: 1. 'Mechanical construction,
2. Evolution. But we know that instead of two there are numerous possible
methods, such as absolute creation,
mediate creation, critical evolutiou, and
gradual evolution* The origin of whales
affords an example of tho difficulties
arising from referring existing forms to
imaginary ancestors. Gaudry, though a
strong evolutionist, candidly says: "We
have questioned these strange aud gigantic sovereigns of tho tertiary oceans, and
they leave us without a reply."
The periods of rapid Introductions of
uow forms of life were not periods of
struggle for existence, but of expansion;
while the real periods of struggle wero
marked by depauperation und extinction.
Another unsolved problem is the inability of palaeontology to fill the gups tu
the chain of being. Many lines of being
presont a continuous chain. On the other hand, tho abrupt and simultaneous
appcirance of new typos in many specific
and generic forms, ovor wide areas,
obliges ovolutiouists to assume periods
of exceptional activity alternating with
stagnation—a doctrine scarcely differing
from the old theory of special creation.
Plainly a vast amount of conscientious
work is needed to account for these
breaks in the chain.
Another mystery yet unexplained is
the cause of the great movements of the
earth's crust hy whicn mountains and
flains and ocean beds have been formed,
t is known, however, that much Is due
to the unequal settling of the earth towards its center, and also to tho pressure
of the ocean against the shore. Complex
movements of plication are more easily
comprehended than the regular pulsations of flat continental areas, each
change being accompanied by changes of
climate, plants and animals.
The problems as to coal formations the
ancient fucoids or algio and as to the
great and much debated glacial period,
next received attention. What caused
tho great climatic changes that have occurred during geologic tone T How came
there to he a vast continental glacier
reaching as tar south an the 40th degree
of latitude and thousands of feet thick ?
Shall wo not after all have to give up
this favorite theory ? May not many of
the phenomena be explained by supposing a glacial sea with Arctic currents
aud icebergs wafted southward are due
to local glaciers 1 It may also be questioned if glaciers are not relatively pro*
tectivo rather than erosive agencies, and
if sufficient impoitancc has been attached
to their work in leveling and filling old
bills and channels. Still another question is as to how long a time has elapsed
sine - tho glacial era. Recently tha opinion has been gaining ground that its
cessation dates back only 0,000 or 7,000
years. This problem, of course, carries
with it the question of the origin and
early history of man,
The practical inference is that we aro
but new-comers on this earth, and have
had but little tithe to solve such great
problems. Geology is young, scarcely a
century old. We are surprised tbat so
many regard it as a complete and full
grown science. Humility, hard work,
and abstinence from hasty generalizations Bhould characterize geologists for at
least a few generations to come. Science
Is light, and light is good. Let us raise
it high enough to shine over obstruction
that costs any shadow on tho true interests of humanity. Above all, lot us hold
up tho light and not stand in it oursolves.

Pakih, Nov. 21.—It ia reported the
Chinese government offered Prance seventy-five million francs in settlement of

ftones.
Paws, Nov. 21.—The negotiations of
Granville, British foreign secretary, aiid
Marquis Tsing, Chineae ambassador,
with a view to the settlement of the

ambassador at Pekin.
PAWS, Nov. 21.—It is reported Admiral Courbet, seeing it impossible for
him "to successfully operate ugainst the
enemy with his present feeble forces,
and having vainly asked for reinforce
inenta, has determined to resign.
Lohpon, Nov, 21.—The Marquis of
Salisbury is pressing Gladstone for n reduction iu the number of Irish mem-
ben In the house of commons under the

IpWIKw, Nov. 22.—The distress among
the English shipbuilding workiugmen is
increasing at the shipyards on theJyne,
Clyde and Mersey. There'll scarcely
one-fourth of tho possible working force
and power now In effective operation.
Bbrlin, Nov. 22.—At to-day's sitting
of the Congo conference, John A. Kos-
son, the American delegate, made certain proposals with reference to the frontiers of Congo basin. It is generally
believed that England has agreed to recognize the International African Association as a state. If Is reported that
the agreement of Germany with the In
ternational African Association consists
ef two parts. The first part enumerates
the guarantees the association will give
to Germany. The second part enumerates that Germai-y will recognize the
flag of the association as the flag of a
friendly state. The members of tbe
Congo conference dined with the emperor
to-night,
Louisville, Ky., Nov. 24.—A sensation was created to-day by a publication
in Boston, Knights of Honor Observer,
charging tbat Robt. J. Breckenridgo,
late supreme treasurer of the Knights of
Honor, is a defaulter to the extent of
8100,000. Incidentally the same paper
refers to Breokeuridge as a "rival of
Captain Kidd." In addition to its local
report, the Observer editorially arraigns
Breckenridgo as being accountable for
large, (-urns of money. "To widows and
orphans of departed brothers." Observer
Is edited by A, M. Cummings, who Ib on
very intimate terms with Gen. Sloan,
supreme dictator of the Knights of Honor, and J. U. Branch, who succeeds
Breckeuridge as supreme treasurer.
Breckenridgo is In tho eity and denies
the charge, pronouncing the whole thing
a tissue of falsehoods. Said he: "I lmvo
received money which has not been paid
out. I was ordered by the chancery
court to pay no more benefits after October 18th livst, and I obeyed the order.
Fur this reason there is now a consider*
able amount lm the People's Bank to the
credit of the Knights of Honor." The
general opinion among members of the
Knights oi Honor is that the charge is
not truo. Col, Breckenridge will sue for
libel.
Columbus, O., Nov. 24. — A large
crowd of the anti-liquor elemeut at
Bladensburg, Knox Co., made an attack
hist Saturday night on Chapin's saloon.
The proprietor was struck oo the head
by a stone and his skull fractured. All
the liquor was thrown into the streets.
When the physician arrived Chimin was

Paris, Nov. 24.-Advices from Tonquin say that as reprisal for the attack
made by Chinese upon the French gunboats Klcuire and Tromo on the tilth
inac, on the Claire river, while they
were re victual ling the garrison at Tugon
Wan, Gen. Briere DeLislo telegraphs
that Col. Duchisne was sent to attack
the force of Blaek Flags and Chinese
regulars entrenched In the fortified works
near that place. The Frenoh forces captured the fortifications, the enemy fleeing. The French lost 8 men killed *nd
25 wounded. The Chinese evacuated
Song Kan valley. A later dispatch
states that Col. Duchisne next day
stormed without loss three fortified vil-
u and destroy 11 or captu.ed all the
enemies' supplies. The enemy were in
full retreat, taking refuge In the mountain! and forests. In the Chamber of
Deputies to-day the debate on the Ton-
qufu Credits began. M. Lookroy, radical, opened the debate with an attack on
the government and generally criticised
ita colonial policy. De La Fosse, of
right, vehemently denounced the ministers and claimed they deserved to he impeached. The debate will resume tomorrow.
San Francisco, Nov. 24. -This afternoon a row between different factions of
Chinese occurred in the Chinese quarters. Pistols and knives were freely
used.   Tho noise of the fuslhtde brought
Jiolicemen to the scene who, on arrival,
ound one Chinaman in a dying condition. While being removed to the receiving hospital for treatment he died,
and the corpse was taken to the morgue
instead. Shortly afterwards two wounded Chinamen were brought to tho receiving hospital. One was stabbed iu tin-
back and the other shot in the check.
On the former was found a revolver with
5 chambers empty, on the latter it revolver from which but one bullet had
been discharged. The men pretended
not to know that one of their countrymen had beeu killed, or who he was.
Nothing could lie learned from them
concerning the trouble whieh led to the
shooting and cutting affray.
Paws, Nov. H-t.—Fiyaro states that
England's decision not to permit the
Congo ooutercuce tn establish an international commission for the regulation of
tno Niger was intimated at the first session of the conference. Sir'Edward
Mulct, British delegate, declared iu explanation of this that tho commerce of
the. Niger was exclusively British, and
the tribes on tho Nigor delta wero under
British protection. England, however,
he asserted, would pledge herself to clear
the river, regulate navigation, and throw
the river open to tho world,
San Francisco, Nov, 24.—DeYoung

THINK OF IT NOW!
Although much la said about the Importance of a blood-purifying medicine, lt maybe
possible that the subject has never seriously
claimed yonr attention.   Think of it now!
Almost evory person has some form of scrofulous poison latent In bis veins. When tbis
develops in Scrofulous Sores, tTlcerf, or
Eruptions, or in the form of Rheumatism,
•r Organic Diseases, the suffering tbat eu-
lues Is terrible. Hence the gratitude of those

jTremarkable story,
Catherino Vernon might turn out to
bo worth cultivating. Sue had stopped
in to save old Captain Morgan and his
wifo from the consequences of their
own liberality to thoir daughter's children, She had a little colony of pensioners about hor, Elinor wus informed.
She was very rich—ao rich that Bhe
did not know what to do with her
money. Thore waa a swarm of Vernons round her eating her up.
"We aw hor nearest relations on
her mother's sido," Elinor had aaid,
"I do not soo why we should not have
our chance too. Don't forget ub, Roland, if you make any way; and you
ought to do somothiug, for you have
the right way with women," hia sister
said, with some admiration and a little doubt, Her faith was that ho whb
sure to succeed, hor doubt whethor his
suceess would bo of use to anybody
but himself; but, howovor it might
turn out, it wob always better that ono
of tho Ashtons Bhould bonotit by
Catherino Vernon's colossal fort uno
than that it should all go into tho hands
of the othor peoplo.
Roland himself was well awaro that
lie had the right way with women.
Thia was not tho result of art and cul-
ouUtion, but was pure naturo. The
young man was bent upon Iub own
ends, without much consideration, in
great mattera of other people. But in
small matters ho was very considerate,
and had a delightful way of deferring
to the ceinfort of those about'him.
And ho had tho power of looking interested, and even of feeling interested in everybody ho addressed. And
he had fine eyea! What moro is needed to enable a young man to make his
way with women? He was very popular; he might havo married well had
lie chosen to tako that step; indeed,
the chief thing against him was that
ho had wavered too long, more than
once, beforo he could make up his
mind to hurt the feelings of a sensitive girl by not asking her to marry
him. It was not, to he sure, his
fault if they thought that was his
meaning.
A prudent girl will novor allow horself to think su until she is asked
point-blank; and when yuu came to
investigate each caso, thero really was
nothing against Roland. Ho had
mado himself agreeable, but then that
wu his way. Ho could unt help making himself agrocibK The very tone
of his voico ..'h:ui: .iid when ho spoko to
any woman who pleased him, and ho
was rery catholic in his tastes. Most
women pleased him if thoy had good
looks, or even tlio remains of good
looks; or if they were, or even if thoy
were nice; and ho was pleasant to all,
old and j uuug. The quality was not
without iu dangers, but it had very
great advantages. He came to Redborough fully determined to make the
conquest of Catherine Vernon, whom,
save that she was rie'i and benuvoluut,
he knew very little about. Very rich
(according to Elinor), rather foolishly
benevolent, old—a young man whu
has the right way with women could
scarcely be indifferent to snoh a description. He determined t find un
opportunity in tho dull time of the
year, when business was not too exacting, to pay some of the long overdue respect and gvatitude whicli he
owed to his grandfather. Captain
Morgan professed to have cut himself
clear of all his relationships, but it was
true that twonty years before ho had
spent everything ho had, and deprived
himself of every comfort, he and his
wife, for the maintenance uf his daughter's children. He had never got any
return fur this from the children, who
knew very little about him. And it
was full timo that Roland should como
with his power of making himself
agreeable to pay the family debt—no
harm if he did something for the fnm-,
ily fortunes hy the way.
And it has beon seen that tho young
man fully proved, nnd at once, the
justice of his sister's description uf
him. His grandmother, to bn sure,
was vanquished by his very name, by
a resemblance which alio found out in
his mouth aud eyelids tu his mother,
and by the old lovo which had never
t- been extinguished, nnd could not be
extinguished iu her motherly old
bosom, Rut Heater, by a mere chanco
encounter in the firelight, without
even seeing him, without knowing his
name, had been moved to a degree of
interest such as she was nut conscious
of having felt over before. Aud Cath-
' erine Vernon had yielded at once, and
without a struggle, to his influence.
This was delightful onough; but, after
all, it did nut come to very much, for
Roland found himself plunged into the
midst of a society upon which he had
not at all reckoned.
The community at the Vernonry
Waa umplu; he a as prepared for thai",
and undoidtoud it. But when he went
to the Orange and mado acquaintance
with the closer circle there, the young
men to whom Catti ;- i,,i j mod-i ovr-r
the bank and all i interest.^ and especially Ed.vard, whu, wee established
as if he had hem l.r son, iu hor
house, a change came over Roland's
plans and anticipations. He had a
strong desire fur his own advantage,
und laolifiiitton to follow that wherever
it in if jiit lead hiin; but ho was not
malignant in his selfishness. He had
no wish to interfere, unless it proved
to be absolutely necessary, with' another man's career, or to injure Iub
fellow-creatures in promoting hia own
interest. And it cannot be denied
that ho felt a shock of disappointment
which, as he fuund when he roaauned
with himself on the subject, waa somewhat unreasonable. How could he
expect the field to bu clear for him,
and tho rich, childless woman of fur-
tune left at his mercy? As if there
wure not crowds of other peuplo in the
world who had a quick eye for their
own advantage, aud clour sight to see
who was likely tn serve it! But these
discoveries put hiin out. They mnde
his mission purpuaoleas. They reduced
it to thu moro visit to hia grandfather,
whioh be had called it, but which
ho by no means intended it solely to
be.
After this first shock of disappointment, however, Roland began to find
himself at onco amused and interested
by the new community into tho mulst
of which he hud dropped. The inmates of the Vernonry were all simple
enough. To he vory poor, mid obliged to accept favors from a riclu'ulu-
tive, yet nevor to be able to escape
the Hnve of hum illation—and a grudge
against those who are better off—that
ll indeed too general; and it is even a
conventional necessity of the imagination that there should be bickerings
and private little spites among neighbors io closely thrown together.
Ashton did not seo much of the
Miu Vernon-Ridgways, who had refused to know liim at Catherine's
house, nor of their kindred spirit, Mr.
Mildmay Vernon; but ho could imagine them, and did so easily.    Nor was
the gentle littlo widow—who was now
ou ono side, now on tho other, according ns the last speakor moved her—or
the young heroine, her daughter, difficult to realize. But Catherine and
tho closer group uf her relations puzzled him more. That she should
gauge them nll so exactly, yet go on
with thorn, pouring kindness upon
thoir ungrateful beads with a sort of
amusement at thoir ingratitude, almost a malicious pleasure in it, surprised him loss than that among nll
who surrounded her thero was no ono
who gave to her a real and faithful
devutiun. And hor faith in Edward,
whoso impatience of her bonds was the
greatest uf all, seemed to Roland in
bis spectatorship so pitiful that he
could scarcely help crying out against
it to earth and heaven, He was sorry
for her all tho mure that she was so
littlo sorry for herself; and it seemed
to him that of all her surroundings ho
was the only ono who was sorry for
Catherine. Even his old people, as he
called them, did uot fathom that curse
of her loneliness. They thought,
with everybody elso, that Edward was
a true son tu her, studying her wishes,
and thinking uf nothing so much as
huw to please hor.
It appalled him when he thought uf
the snarl on Edward's lips, the profound discontent in his, soul. It
would bo cruel, above all things, to
warn hor—sho who felt heraelf so
clear-aightod—of the deception ahe
wna tho victim of; and yet what could
it come to but unhappiness? Roland
felt himself overpowered, nnd almost
overawed, by this combination. Nobody but he, it seemed, had divined
it. He hod walked buck with Edward
to the Grange after their long talk and
consultation, and had taken off his hat
with a smile of kindness to the indistinct figure still seated in the winduw,
which Edward recognized with a secret grimace. To soe her Beated there
looking uut for their roturii was a
pleasure to the more genial spirit. It
would have pleased him to feel that
thero was some one who would look
out for his coming, who would watch
him like this, with tenderness aa he
wont away. But then he had no experience of the kind in his own person, and Edward, perhaps, had too
muoh of it.
While tho one went in-doors with
a bitter sense that he could go nowhere without being watched, the
other turned away with a pleasant look
back, waving his hand to Catherino
Vernon in tho window. She was uot
likely to adopt him, but sho was kind
to him—a pleasant, handsome old woman, nnd a most creditable relative.
He was glad ho had come if it wore
for that and no mure, Thero wero
other reasons, too, why Roland ahould
be glad he had cume. He had found
u new client—nay, a group of new
clients—by whose moans he could extend his business and his prospects—
solid peoplo with mil money to risk,
not men of straw.
Though ho wis full of aspirations
thoy were all of a practical kind. He
meant to mako his fortune; lie meant
to do the very beat for his customers
whu trusted him aa well as for himself; and his spirits rnae whan he
thought what a powor uf extensive and
successful operation wuuld be given to
him by the money of nil these now
peoplo who were so eager to face the
risks of speculation. They ahould not
suffer by it; their confidence in him
should be repaid, and not only his,
hut their fortunes wuuld be made.
The certainty of this went to his head
a littlo, liko* wine. It had been well
for him to come. It had been the
most important step lio had ever taken
in bis life. It was not what ho had
hoped for, and yot it was the thing
above nil others that he wanted, a
now start fur him in tho world, and
probably tho turning-point of his life.
Other matters were small iu comparison with this, aud approbation or
disappointment baa littlo tu do with a
new mi,■■■■met in any branch of bimi-
ness. ! r other i.il-'iosta he might
have t. ketl up uu the way, the importance ot them was nothing. Hestor
wos a pretty girl, and it was natural
tu him to have an occupation of that
sort iu hand; but to supposo that ho
was sufficiently interested to allow any
thought of her to beguile him from
matters so much more serious, would
havo beei vain indeed. He felc juat
such a momentary touch of pique in
hearing that she was going to bo married, ns a woman-beauty docs when
she hears of any, conquests but her
own. If she had seen him (Roland)
firat, she would not havo beeu, he felt,
so easily won; but ho laughed at himself for tho thought, aa perhaps the
woman-beauty would scarcely havo
been moved to du.
"I think, if you will let mu, I will
send down Emma for a little fresh air
and to make your acquaintance, grand*
mother. She is rather of the butterfly order of girls, but there is no harm
in her. And na it iB likely that I shall
have ii good deal to do with the Vernons—"
"What do yuu want with tbo Vernons? Why shuuld you hove a good
doal lo do with them?" .inked Captain
Morgan, hastily, and, it must bo added, rather testily, for the old man's
usually placid humor had been disturbed of late.
"Jn iho most legitimate wny," said
Ashton, "You can't wish mu, now
that I am just launched in buainoss,
to shut my oyes to iny own advantage.
It will be to their advantage, too.
Thuy uro going to be customers of
minu. When yuu have a man's money
tu invest you havo a good deal to do
with him. I shall,huye to como and
go, in all likelihood, often."
"Your customers—and tboir money
to invest—what do you mean by tbat?
1 hope yuu haven't taken advantage of
my relationship with Catherine Vernon to draw in those boys of hers—"
"Grandfather," said Roland, with
an air digne which it was impossible
not to respect, "if you think a little
you will see how injurious your words
are. I cannot for.a moment suppose
you moan them. Catherine Vomun's
boys, us you coll them, are nearly as
old, and 1 suppose nr capable of judging what iB fur their advantage, ns 1
am. If they choose to intrust me
with their business, iB there any reason
why I Bhould refuse it? I am glad to
get everything I ean."
"Yes, sir, thero iB u reason," said
Captain Morgan, "I know what speculation is. I know what happens
when a hot-headed young fellow gets a
little bit ot success, and tlio gambling
fever gets into his veins. Edward
Vernon is just the sort of fellow to
fall a victim. Ho is a morose, ill-
tempered, bilious being—"
"Stop!" said Roland; "hove a little
consideration, sir. There is no question of any victim,"
"You are just a monomaniac,
Rowley, my old man," said Mrs. Morgan.
