NUMBER 43
Secret t»f "Ocmocrsiif Victory.
Lecturing before the New York
Free Trade Olub, on the 10th inst,,
Hon. D. A. Wells said the result of
Tuesday came from » feeling that
the people were taxed $160,000,000
a year more than was necessary. A
result of this feeling, lie said, will he
a reduction of the taxation, and the
question for free-traders to consider
is how to bring about, while the circumstances aro favorable, au intelligent revenue reform. New England
manufacturer!!, especially the prints-
men, now favor revenue reform.
As to the results of the reforms that
directly affect the laboring man, the
census of 1880 shows that the average wages in the well-protected silk,
cotton, and woolen industries is
about 85c, a day for each laborer.
The iron and steel makers average
•$1.25 a day, while tho unprotected
agricultural laborers of the Wost
average from $1.46 to $2 a day.
Carpenters and furniture-milkers get
much larger pay than the iron-workers. American laborers in . cotton
mills get $245 for 300 days' work,
British laborers in the same industry get $250. Tlie reason of the
strikes of lust year was (hat it required $144 to buy last July the
food and clothing that could be had
for $108 in 1879. As the present
tHviff system put a premium ou dishonesty, he bolieved tho civil sor
vice reformers nnd the tariff reform,
ers should join hands. Col. Bob
Ingersoll, himself a shining light in
the Republican party, boing inter-
viewed at Detroit on thu same day,
made somewhat similar admissions.
He said that at least $17,000,000
should have been taken from the
bunions borne hy the people. $2<V
000,000 should have beon taken
from sugar and'tho entire tax from
tobacco. Tho Republican party
should have taken such steps that
ill international taxation could with-
n one year from now he ubolished.
rhe people are tired of paying war
axes in time of peace, and the llc-
mblicans should not have postponed
he tariff reform. The tariff com-
nissiou was a mistake. People saw
bat it was only an affidavit for coir
imianco, a ruse for delay, nud that
he Republican party did not intend
oact.
! There   can   be   no doubt that
io reactionary tido now setting in
i vigorously ngainst "protection" iu
ie United States will soon toll on
aiiad.i, and the sooner the better.
ideed   our protective policy was
jnfessodly   a    retaliatory   one   as
gainst so-called protection on the
[.her side of tho boundary line; aud
I the people of the United States
iturn to their senses nn 1 freo trade,
lero will be no reason why Canada
■ould not do tho same thing, and a
itional and broad treaty of reei-
rocity between the two countries
ould then be in order and would
motions   speedily   follow.    These
e a s u r e s accomplished, Canada
ould become the cheapest and most
nirablc) country to livo in on tho
:e of tho earth, and the United
ates would come next.   As mat-
rs have been going lately, both
ire in a fair way of becoming the
arest.   British   Columbia,   more
in any othor part of tho Dominion
perhaps ye might say any other
rt of the continent—has reason to
ih earnestly for such a change.
one side is the U. S. protecting
II, shutting out our mineral and
rine and forest productions, while
the other is tho Dominion N. P.
ttitig   out    those   commodities
ioh, owing to our peculiarly i-
,e and isolated position as a part
"anada, wo must obtain from1 our
rhbora.   Between those two inill-
les, so to speak, British Columbia
eing ground down.   But with n
free, market in tho United States
for our raw productions and with
free entry for such commodities as
we must have from abroad British
Columbia would indeed experience
relief and would undoubtedly bound
forward in the race of empire, And
why should not our neighbors equally desire itl They require our coal
and fish and othor products, just as
much as wo require certain of their
manufactures, and thoy wonld have
a reflex interest in the large developments sure to follow in the country sandwiched by their own territory.

Sir Joseph Hooker has described a
new genus of rubber-producing plants,
of Malayan origin, to which the name
Dgera has been given.
It is pointed out that many wines,
and especially thoso of Bordeaux, hold
iu solution n larger proportion of iron
than most of the so-called chalybeate
waters.
Recent analyses are slated to show
that tlio water of tho "Holy Well" nt
Mecca—so eagerly drank by pilgrims—
is sewage about ten times ns strong as
the nverago Londun sewage.
A very durable artificial ivory hns
recently been prepared by dissolving
shellac in ammonia, mixing tho solution with oxide of nine, driving uiFthe
ammonia by healing, powdering, and
strongly compressing in moulds.
It is well known that many fine
bronzes soon turn quite black while
others equally exposed do not. The
Berlin Society of Architects finds that
tho blackening, is probably due to tho
presence of zinc in the bronzes su
affected, *
Aftor considerable di faculty, the
Cavalioro d'Atiiico has succeeded in
accomplishing the important botanical
resUlt of nccHriiittizing a number of
foreign plants in Sicily. Among them
is the tea-plant, nnd it is hoped that
Sicilian tea may ere long become a not
unimportant article of commerce.
Prof. Brims, of Tubingen, lias made
some experiments on dogs., which he
regards as proving that bone-marrow,
completely separated from tho bono,
mny be transplanted tinder tho skin of
lhe same animal at a remote part of
the body witli the rosult of givim* rise
to the formation of bone and cartilage.
Mr, Vaeher-has assured thd British
Medical Association that milk from
tuberculous cows must be regarded ns
dangerous, but tile transmission of
consumption by milk is almost incapable of proof because so many other
possible sources of the disease exist iu
nil enses where persons become nli'ect-
cd. A wise course is to boil all milk
to be used as food.
A large subterranean grotto lifts
been discovered in the side of a mountain at Dorgali, in the island of Sardinia. It has many beautiful stalactites, nnd there nre fifteen long lateral
galleries, tho arch of one of thein resting on a range of high pillars having a
whiteness liko that of marble. A marvellous effect in colors is produced
when the grotto is lit up with torches.
Mi*. Gill, the astronomer at the
Cape Town Observatory, reports au
observation there made which is quite
without .precedent iu the history of
comets, Ou September 17th the comet
was followed by two observers with
sopiii'nto instruments until it reached
the very edgo of the suit's disk, where
it suddenly disappeared. This, observation is an extraordinary illustration
of the iutensu brilliancy of the comet
at perihelion.
Messrs. Frenon, Dumont aud Franco u have produced a novel substance
in ths form of solidified petroleum.
The solidification is effected by mixing
petroleum after its first distillation
with twenty-five per cent, of the purified juice of plants belonging to the
family of Fuphorbiaceae, the mixture
being subsequently distilled again and
refined iu tho ordinary manner. The
solidified petroleum burns like tallow,
and may bo used for lighting or as a
lubricant.
It has recently been discovered that
tho faded ink on old parchments may
he restored by moistening the lines of
writing with a solution of sulphide of
ammonia. The writing will turn quite
dark, and if on parchment will retain
the color, records treated in this way
in the Germanic Museum of Nuremberg boing still in the samo condition
as immediately after the application
ten years ago. On paper, however,
tho restored writing gradually fades
again, but may bo revived at pleasure
by fresh applications of the sulphide.
On the 16th of Octobor tfas commenced tbo fourth century of the
"Now Style" of tinte-registor.rig. The
trno year does riot contain an exaci
number of days, so the fractions have
been allowed to accumulate nnd havo
boon added ns whole days at such
times as have boen considered sufficiently accurate for practical purposes.
As the plan introduced by Julius Oae-
sarof adding ono day to every fourth
year vtas fon nd to mako the average
civil year a fow minutes too long.
Pope Gregory XIII. in 1582 orderod
that tho year be corrected by dropping
ton days—giving to tho next day after
Oct. 4th the date of Oct. 15th—nnd
that tho calendar be made more nearly
accurate by having three fewer leap
years iu each four centuries, making
evory cortturial year not divisible by
400 a year of only 305 clays. This improved system forms tho Gregorian
calendar, which has taken tho place of
the "Old Stylo" in nll countries save
Russia, where tho latter method is
still retained.

Frnlts of the Vlee-Uegal Visit.
. When it became known that the
Pacific Province wns really to be
honored with a visit from tho Governor-General and the Princess
Louise, the Columbian, whilo expressing joy over so auspicious an
event, regarded from a sciitiineiit.il
standpoint, adverted to the more
practical advantages sure to result
from such a visit. Already the
fruits aro beginning to appeal-.
WJiile in tho interior His Excellency
was not idle. Not only did he seek
for information at the hands of-
prominent, reliable settlers of extended experience respecting the
character aifl capabilities of the
country and its adaptation for .various industries but he appears' to have
taken good care that the valuable
information so obtained was placed
In those channels where it would do
Diott good. From "a mass of notes"
prepared and sent by direction of
His Excellency, the Toronto Globe
publishes an interesting summary of
statistical and othor information obtained from Mr. M. I.umby, Okanagon; Mr. John Clapper'on, Nicola
Valley; Mr, James Eoper, Kamloops; Mi*. Alox. Pringle, South
Thompson; Mr. T. Harper, Bonaparte Mills; Mr. Thos. Wood, Mission Valley; Mr. Honry Cornwall,
ABlicroft; and Mr. Robert Lamby,
Shuswap Lake. The general average outcome of the information testifies to the magnificence of tho climate, the productiveness of the soil,
and the suitableness of the country
for raising cattle and sheep. The
conclusion arrived at is that any
Bober, industrio. settler with from
J50O to 81,000 ns a. starter, can go
into farming .ind stock-raising in a
smallish way, making u living from
the vory beginning and attaining a
comfortable competency in the course
of a few years.
The Globe also published the able
and eminently practical address delivered by His Excellency at tho
Victoria banquet, making the following editorial observations thereon:—
It would be difficult to over-estimate
the Value to a young und struggling
Province of suoh a speech as that delivered by His Excellency at Victorin,
and printed elsewhere in this issue.
The testimony boruo by the Governor
to the geniality of the climate nnd tho
Mastiiess of the natural wealth of our
Pacific empire is such as will carry
conviction to enquiring minds. Everyone reading this speech, whether in
Eastern Canada or outside of tho Dominion, will seo that the commendations given aro based upon personal
experience, and that thoy como from a
person who is not open to tho imputation of interested motives. Lord Lorno
is to bo especially congratulated upon
.the manner in which he laid down to
the British Columbians the reasons
thoy have to bo grateful to the Dominion, for, as he says, no othor nation of
equal importance has ever done as
much for one of its members. His
treatment of tho difficult Chineso question must be commended. It is quito
true that, wliatover may be tho interests of the Dominion, it is tho paramount interest of British Coiumbin to
get a through line completod at the
earliest possible moment, wliatover
may be the agencies it is necessary to
employ. And speaking of tho labor
question, the remarks of His Excellency concerning the industry and
'notability of the British Columbian
Indians throw light that is quito new
to most of us upon tho prospects of the
Province. If these Indiana are thus
intelligent and thus anxious to learn
how to labor profitably, half of tho
difficulties ordinarily besetting the
agricultural pioneer will not prevail in
British Columbia, Many other observations concerning tlio agricultural
and mining resources ef the country
will, no doubt, prove to be of very
great value to the colonists.
the visit may be expected to bear
happy fruit, Tho visit to this Province of Her Eoyal Highness tlio
Princess Louiso is no common incident. Tlie cii-cumstunco of the daughter of our beloved Queen coming all
the way ucross tho continent to visit
this the most remote of all tho Canadian Provinces and lingering several
months in it, is not to be thought
lightly of or to pass away soon from
the minds of the people. But the
Prince-SB Louiso is something more
than a daughter of the Queen. She
is herself n Queen—the Queen of
Hearts, going about with nil her
mother's Ihonghtful, sympathetic,
winning ways. True, circumstances
have not boen such as to enable her
to go about and see ns much of tho
country and people as ono could have
wished; but still, whero she has not
beon ublo to go, her kind words and
uiniublo nnd queenly doings hnve
penetrated, and today sho reigns in
the hcnrtR of tho peoplo—almost a
rival to her royal mother. One important effect of nil this will be to
draw closer to tlio Tln-ono n Province geographically dangerously remote and to increase our oneness
with the rest of tbo Dominion. Tho
population of British Coiumbin is
drawn from muny nations, and it
would almost seem ns if the visit of
the Governor-General nnd especially
the Queen's daughter woro necessary
to complete the nutonomy of the
British American Empire.

Not only do we anticipate important practicnl results from such in
formation disseminated by ordinary
methods, but we shall be greatly
surprised if equally important ro
suits do not flow from the pon and
pencil of the illustrious pair. They
will constitute at once nn agreeable
and most effective medium for making this terra incognita kuown in
the Old World; and whon our incomparable climate, unrivalled scenery and boundless resources come to
be understood through such modiums
ob these, Columbia shall no longer
have occasion to lament her forlorn
condition. Not that these will obviate the necessity for using tho ordinary means for securing a proper
influx of population and capital, but
they will act as most effective auxiliaries.
Thoro is another sense in which
A short time ngo, ndverting to
the political position of the member
for this city, the Victoria Standard
asserted that inasmuch ns Mr. Ann-
strong wns elected ns un independent
candidate, ho was free to join the
Beaven administration without laying himself open to the charge of inconsistency.    Now this assertion is
in   direct   conflict   with   historical
facts. What was this man's position
in the old House during its last session! Thnt of tho most pronounced
opposition to  tho Walkem-Beaven
administration,—notably in respect
to their dock policy.    Whut wns his
position in regard to the Boaveii administration  nt the general election
in July! Still thnt of pronounced opposition.    He authorized the gentlemen who carried around a requisition
for signatures to say so, nnd lio wns
pledged  to work hnnd in hnnd with
tho two members for the District ou
the opposition line—vide Mr. Orr's
statement at tho public meeting in
this city, August 31st,    What was
his position immediately nfter the
general election! Ditto.   Did he not
rush off eagerly and write thnt celebrated letter to tho lender of the
Opposition, congratulating him upon
"OUR. victory," and saying, "Yale
will give US two, und I think Cassiar will do tho sume.    Give Comox
to tho OTHER SIDE, leaving 16
to 9 for the Government side.   WE
mny sny the matter is now safe in
OUR hands."   Again, on tho 11th
August, he  signed n round  robin
declaring his want of confidence in
the Benven Government,—snid document being intended to constitute
ground  upon wliich tho Lieutenant-
Governor could arrive at u sufficiently definite conclusion respecting tlie
relative strength of parties in the
new House to justify him in exercising tho latent prerogative.   Theso
things being so—and they arc incontrovertible facts which hnve passed
into history—how can it possibly be
nssorted with tho slightest color of
truth thnt tho man wus elected as nn
Independent or wns in n position to
go over to Boavoii without dishonor!
And yet on the Uth of August he
flopped  over to  Benven.    Nay,  it
was ussorted by Mr. Orr nt llio public meeting referred to thnt "Ue had
every reajon to believe lhat at the very
time he signed the round, robin Mr.
Armstrong   .wtis   negotiating  with
Heaven for a porifulio"! Tulk nbout
consistency anil honor iu the face of
such facts!   Bah!   It's enough   to
make a monkey sick.

cattle-stealing caso wns going on* the
witness said he saw Ned going into the
field with a rope, Counsel for Ned
asked "What was he going to do with
the rope ? Perhaps he was merely
going to milk one of his own cows.
Judge—"Wlmtl with the rope?"
Pwwokal— Amongst the pnsBeiigors
going away by the mail stoamer tomorrow will ho Mm. It. \V, Hodgson;
of Somas, wlm, nfter about twenty years' residence; goes to her native
Province of Ontario, on a visit to her
mother at Kingston. Mrs, Hodgson's
many friends iu this Province wish
her a pleasant journey and safe return.
"Tina May PhomisbV'*—Tennyson's
now play boaring this title, was produced for tho first timo before a brilliant and crowded audience nt tho
"Gloho Thoatre,1*'London, ou the 11th
inst. Gladstone's appearance in a box
elicited very enthusiastic applause—
wliich appears to be more than can be
said of tlio play—generally pronounced
a failure. *
, Rain and Ruin.—Tho news from
England up to the middle of the mouth
is far from cheering. Ono dispatch
says:—"A great part of England is
now flooded by heavy rains, which
havo been fulling of lato almost without intermission, so that iu scarcely
any district has autumn wheat been
sown. The tradio of some parts of
such towns as Canterbury and Reading is carried on in bouts, and the
country upon each side of tho railway
looks like a lake. Sheep rot has made
its appearance iu many places.
A Chance fob Bargains.—Again
would wo direct attention to tho auction sale to be held at Brownvilo this
morning. There is a largo lot of bod-
ding, including a line lino of blankets,
and there uro also many valuable
things required by now settlers fur
household and farming purposes. In
fact the articles aro for the most part
singularly seasonable,, and there will
doubtless bo a rare chance for bargains- as tho lot is large and tho sale
without reserve. Proper accommodation will be made for ferrying those
crossing over from this sido.
The Dby SeEuks.—A very interesting report of Dr. Boll's geological surveying-expedition in tho northern part
of tho "Great Lone Land" has been
published. It would appear tlmt there
lies north of the Saskatchewan au itn-
menso region highly adapted for sustaining population. From careful observation Dr. Bell concludes lhat the
country is subject to alternate series
of wet and dry seasons, each circle
lusting eleven or twelve yoars; and according to tho theory a dry aeries will
follow this'year. Dr. Boll's report
cannot fail to attract very great interest.
PKflttONAii.—Win. Holt, Esq., Banker of Barrio, Ontario, father of Mr.
Claude Holt, of the Oncjniilhih Cannery, was found drowned in a bay of
Lake Sinicoe, in which ho was in "the
habit of bathing every morning. Although there was no direct evidence,
the conclusion was thaLdeceased had
taken a fit. and su been drowned. He
wjiii very highly esteeniod, and tho and
accident cast a gloom over thu community where he had resided upwards
of twenty years. Tho circumstance of
Claude having paid a visit, to his father
a few months ago will now bo a source
of some convolution to him.
Tlie "Jersey Illy."
The leading American journals are
loud aiid enthusiastic in pi'n-se of Mrs.
Langtry, the "Jersey Lily." Certainly
she has made a splendid ihhut. One
afternoon Wnllnok's Theatre had 1,800
packed into it to witness her play in
"An Unequal Match." I'ho New
York Tribune, while passing the highest encomiums upon her acting, says:
"Of Mrs, Langtry's personal beauty
tho report has not been exaggerated.
Her head and face are as nearly perfect iu nltiiost ovor)' attribute of loveliness as anything that has been seen
in libmali guise."
Mammoth Kidnev.—There was on
exhibition at the "London Market"
iu this city on Monday n kidney weighing (t')\ lbs. Mr. Townsoiid says it
wmild "havo weighed 100 lbs. if taken
out by a profession*)! man, The steer
from which it was taken weighed 1,401)
lbs. The kidney has been packed up
aud sent tu England where it will
doubtless croat a sensation.
This North Am EsTflftTAisarEKT,—
Wc aro gratified to hear that there ia
every prospect of this entertainuiont
boing a great, success. Some sixty
tickets wove disposed of very readily
iu tills community and moro will
doubtless bo taken to-day, as tiie
weather is so favorable and the prospects of u really pleasant time so' good.
Tlio entertainment is to be in tho
Richmond Town Hall, instead of tho
•pint roll, as lit firat a nn minced. Steamer loaves at 0 o'clock.
Tiik iN.ij'EeTloN.— Deputy Adjutant
General Dupont inspected tho New
Westminster militia companies on
Saturday evening Inst. Both Rifles
and Artillery mustered well and went
through tho usual exerci.ics admirably,
eliciting from tho D. A. G, complimentary remarks as to their soldierly
appearanco and elli-jioney in drill.
The Baud was also highly complimented. Quite n large number of spectators, including several ladies, wove
present, and the affair passed oil most
successfully.
■**■ ——
Rowm on SoMEiionv.—Referring
to the caso of Powers and Forest,
which was beforo tho Court some time
ago, but did not reach n conclusion,
Mr. Justice Crease last Monday said it
was ono of tho fnost disgusting cases
ho had ever heard of, aud he had beon
in tho ori in ilia i courts of this province
for tho lost 25 years. Ho criticised
with tho greatest possible severity the
conduct of certain saloon-keepers in
this Provinco who give men liquor until
thoy make beasts of themselves.
Liquor, ho said, wns a very good thing
jn its place, but when taken to excess
it was tho cause of nearly evory kind
of crime and disorder.
Hard on tiik Box. -Tho Sheriff
keeps a tin box on tlio Court Houso
table from whicli he takes the ballots
for jurymen. The tin box vory much
resembles Jnttf of si coal oil c"an, painted a bright pea-green color on the outside. Thnt box caught the eye of Mr.
Justice Grease.on Monday j and lie
delivered himsolf thus: "iir.' Sherifi',
can't you got a move fospeetiiblo ballot
box than Mint/ It is contrary to the
eternal fitness of things that'such a
box should have served tliis Court for
tho last twenty-live years. Be good
enough to have a proper box prepared,
and if no one else will pay for it, hnve
it charged to mo."
i/bmiiig liu
It is exceedingly gratifying to learn
that a number of families have recently-, goiie in and taken up land in.what
is known as tlie Matsqui District, on
tho Lower Eraser. Somo eight families havo already entered aud u number more will immediately follow. The
land is of tho very best quality, and
nothing but population and roads are
noeded to make it one of the most important settlements in the Province.
One piece of road three or four-miles
in length is now urgently required in
order to connect the settlement with
the river nn one sido and the trunk
road on tho other.
"coinl-u.g Brents',' &c*>
On Wednesday tho local organ published u letter written by a member of
its own staff advising it to prepnro to
Hop ovor to the Government which
must take tlio place of the present ono
when the Souse meets. On Saturday
tho following significant passage appeared iu its leading column: "No one
deserves the lish who docs not know how
to open tho oyster, ami if the Government is wrecked from want of knowledge iu playing their cards, thoy cannot blaiuu rtily one but themselves.
* * * The position is simply this:
Tho parties are equally balanced, with
perhaps ono in favor of tho Government; but this Is insufficient'to onrry
on tho business1 of the country," Evidently tho follow is posing for another
jump, It is a caso of rats deserting a
sinking ship.

ilevJrfli Serrieci
Anotiieu LANn-si.ir.—A correspondent informs us of another laud-slip
having occurrod on tho C. P. R, line
near tho residence of Mr. Mclvor,
Maplo Ridge. Mr, Hincho's party-
were at work when it occurred. Somo
of tho Chinamen, our correspondent
writes, had to run for it. It was feared there would he more similar movements. Thnt formation would appear
to lio as great au engineering puzzle as
tho big Mini Slide near Nicomin.
Would it not be worth while to hnvo
a thorough examination with a view to
nscortaiiiing cause and roiuody? Tho
question not only soriously afl'eots railway construction, but it involves the
autonomy of soveral very valuable
homesteads.
The special services which had been
iu progress for tho previous threo
weeks in the Methodist Church of tlii*
city, woro brought to a closo on Sunday last. At tho morning servico the
pastor read the "General Rules" of
tho Society and preached upon the
duties and responsibilities of Church
membership. In* the evening four
adults were baptized and forty-live
persons received as candidates for
membership. Subsequently the Sacrament of the Lord's Supper was administered to a large number of communicants. Tho congregation completely tilted tho entire edifice aud the
services throughout were of tho most
impressive character, Indeed no
thoughtful mind could fail to bo a fleeted by the spectacle of so large a number of our neighbors, of both sexes and
all ages, from' the aged grandfather to
tho child of comparatively tender years
—husbands and wives, parents aud
children —■ thus uniting with the
Church of Christ and pledging themselves as following the divine Redeemer. One pleasing feature iu connection witli the reception above referred
to is tho fact that, so far as known,
none of those uniting with the Methodist Church havo lvountly beon connected with any other Church or congregation in the eity. It may bo added that in almost overy instance tho
professed converts have voluntarily
signed tho temporanco pledge which
was on baud each evening and received thoy had.found
a largo number of additional names.      . trim
Doctors Disagreeing,
It appears that thore is a disagreement* among the Engineers lespecting
tho route of tho C. P. R. from a point
at Port Haney west to tho crossing at
Pitt river,—one party contending that
a shorter an!d better line can bo obtained by keeping 0i\ok from the Fraser,
while the clayey formation so liable to
slides would bo entirely avoided—the
other party contending for ths shore
line as at present laid flown. We hear
that "a council of war" was held on
the subject at. Port Haney last week,
aud that simiohigli-jiiika wero enacted,
but no final conclusion reached. Without presuming to express an opinion
on a purely engineering question, we
may be permitted to sny respecting the
alleged change of station that there appears to exist amongst the settlers an
opinion strongly adverse to it. It is
contended that the location originally
made possesses the Important advantages of being inoire central and easily
accessible to those for whose accommodation stations are generally supposed to-be created.
Supreme Court.
(linn. Sir. Jitsflcu Oro;inc presiding,)
Mondag, JYtJt'. "7,
The Court met at 11 o'clock ;.. m.
The Crown was represented by Mr,
McElmon, and tho Bar   by Messrs,
Bole and Corbould.
GRAND   JUHY.
The following i'ontlemon wera sworn
in as a Grand Jury:—J. C. Armstrong,
Walter Blackie, Jno. 13. Lord, Jas.
Cunningham, Robt, Dickinson, R. W,
Deane, Chas. MoDunoiigh, H. V. Edmonds, Henry Elliott, Fred. Eickhoft;

Goo. C. Webster, Robt. Dickinson
was ohoSdti foreman.
Tllli SUtlQU's OHAllOB.
Tho learned Judgo, addressing the
Grand Jury, said tho eases before the
Court were of a character sullicieutly
grave to demand Borious attention.
Two of tho indictments wore for the
highest oH'encOs known to the law; and
threo wero for stealing cattle—an
offence which, in this country whore
so many cattle Vanches existed, and
whero there were so many facilities for
making away with stock, would be
very apt to increase unless checked by
the strong arm of the law. A ffcor vei-y
briefly referring to tho several cases,
his Lordship pointed out that tho province of a Grand Jury was not to try a
case, but to ascertain from the evidence whether there was a prima facie
ease suflicient to justify the case going
to a petit jury. Ho reminded them
that they must not permit tho gravity
of tin1 charge or their own sympathies
to influence them in thoir reflections.
It noiihl be proper for them to enquire
into any other matters affecting lhe
comufou weal, except such matters ns
fairly came undor political jurisdiction,
Lief erring to the present Court-house,
his Lordship expressed a hope that, its
ncuonfiuodrtjloii would be greatly in-
eronsodj althdugh even now it. was vory
much more Cutliinodiyus than what
they had in years past. This country
is steadily advancing and the public
institutions should keep pace with that
advancement.
OATTLH STI*ALINO.
The first oast) wns a three-fold one.
From tho evidence it appeared that
Thos. York, a cnttlu-raiser of Sumas,
lost a steer about July last, Me was
informed thnt the.steer had been killed
by .Indians, Three Indians named
Jasper, Ned aud Sain, living about 2
miles from his place, were arrested,
and, after examination before a Hingis-
ito, wero committed for trial. In
court Jasper pleaded guilty, slating in
extenuation of his crime that York's
steer had broken into tho field and
destroyed a largo quantity of his crop.
Ned (for whom Mr. Corbould appeared
as counsel) entered a plea of not guilty.
Mr. York gave evidence as tn the losing of the steer, and the information
on which he hnd the II Indians arrested. The principal witness was Jasper,
one of the accused Indiana, Mo stated
that the three had arranged to kill
York's steer because it had destroyed
their crop. "It whs agreed UiatJaspor
should kill tho animal while tho other
two -kept watch. Hu killed the steer
in a small bush within a rod of the
llfl'ld, while Nod and Sam were engaged mending the fence. After kiil-
ing it ho took olf the hide and cut Iho
carcass into quarters. Each Indian
took a quarter, aud also a third of tho
remaining quarter. But after receiving his share Ned showed the whito
feather and threw his quarter into tho
bush. ' The others then became
alarmed ami did likewise. Jasper
staled very clearly lhat all threo were
equally concerned in tho transaction.
Mr. Corbould then consulted with Ned
aud announced that ho would enter
the plea of Guilty, a' course' which Iho
lenrnfid Judge very highly commended.
Tho jury was therefore discharged.
Sam pleaded Not Guilty, and his caso
wont to the jury oiv substantially the
samo ovidonco, and aftor it brief consultation tho jury brought in a vordict
Of Guilt*.
The Grand   Jury announced   that
1UM.5*
in the case of the Queen vs. Jnck, tho
Queen vs. Joe, the Queen vs. Hall,
and No Bill iu the case of the Queen
vs. Lap Kino, for assault. Mr. Bole
was counsel for Lap Kino.
There being no other oases ready.
Court was adjourned titl Tuesday
morning at 11 o'clock.
Tuesday, Nov. 38.
The whole day was occupied with
the'case of the Queen against Joe, an
Indian charged with tho murder of an
Indian woman near Hnatinys, a short
time ago; but inasmuch as Iho ease
was not concluded, we shall hold over
our report of tho evidence till next
issue.
Caution.
We beg to call the attention of the
trade and the publio to the welj-keowii
quality ami eloganco of finish of our
Gold Casus, guaranteed by us to be of
eighteen karat Cold, U. S. Mint assay,
or of fourteen karat Cold, as may be
stamped, and nl™ to our mode of Boiling
the Hame, charging only for the Acriui,
WJsrauT (;f the gold used, and not tor
the base metal comprised in springs, key
pipes, filling of crown, etc. To illustrate
which a tug accompanies each one of our
Gohl Cases, vfh\eh plainly indicates not
only the gross weight o'f the case, hut
also tho Net weight of tho gold.
In explanation (,\ the Above wc desire
to suy that the old [dan of charging for
the gross weight of tho c,ise,,as if it were
all gold, worked well enough ds long as
tho manufacturers were content with the
amount of brass and ftteel actually re
quired in its construction; but when the
business was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base motnl
into the least quantity of gold and call it
a Oold disc, then the time came when,
iu the intcrost of dealers in American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt a
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much Golu each ease contained.
To avoid imposition, purchasers of Wnl-
tham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,
bears our trade mark on both case and
movement, Cold cases are stamped "A,
W. Co.;" and guarantee certificates accompany them. Silver cases are stamped
"A. M. Watch Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," and are accompanied by
guarantee certificates, signed ft. E. .Bobbins, ^treasurer. The name "Waltham"
is plainly cngraverl upon all movements,
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks, This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our cases
are frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and vice, trrm,
thus affecting injuriously tins performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
by us. It is necessary nlso, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
thnt there is great fraud in the metal
quality of both gold nud silver cases as
now generally sold. Wo have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver canes offered in the market arc debased from 10 to 1*0 per cent,
from the quality they assume to be.
This is a fraud upon the purchaser, and
accounts for the low price ut which such
eased watches have been sold.— American Watch Company, Waltham, Mass.

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER IX.
OK THE BRINE OF DECISION.
(Gontttinod.)
He had reached a turn in the Inverallan avonue where a road leading to
the back entrance brunched oil', when,
glancing toward the house, he saw that
several figures were standing on the
lawn inspecting some .young horses,
whioh were being trotted up and down.
He could distinguish Muriol and her
father, and he thought it was Captain
Leslie who stepped forward and
mounted a restive animal that had
proved too much for tho groom. He
could not go down there und himself
J-resent his note, nor did he care to
ace strangers; -ho would go by tho
other road and give it to tho servant.
As he entered the court-yard ho met
Mrs. Simpson on her way to the dairy.
"Mr. Ronald! Were you Becking
any one? The gentry*3 all out on tho
lawn there, with the wild horses tho
captain's brought." The house-keeper
apoke almost auspiciously. What
mould this -young man be coming
round then for ? Bhe wondered,
"I saw there were visitors, Mrs.
Simpson, ftn*A -slid not care to stop and
Vie them. I Only want to leave this
note fdr Miss Forbes—I am anxious
ihe should have it to-day," said Ronald, the anxiety very visible 'on his
face. "Perhaps yeu will seo to it.
You might give it to her when sho is
disengaged, he added, hesitatingly.
He did not like to say "whon sho ia
alone."
"YflS) I'll tako charge of it," Bhe replied- and Ronald returned as he had
come.
"What can he be wanting, writing
to Miss Muriel, I'd like to know?"
thought Mrs. Simpson, dropping the
note into a capacious pocket. "She's
enough to attend to without being
' troubled wi' the likes 0' him; and she's
going off, too, in an hour,"
There are accidents into which it is
ta well never to enquire too curiously.
Human nature is strangely sly, even
in communing with itself. Mrs,
Simpson did uot distinctly say to herself that she would not deliver the
note—that would have been a breach
of duty—but sho could send it up
a little later, when the horses were
gone, and the ladies should have come
in, and Miss Muriel should be disengaged; aud meantime, though the
footmen were closo at hand in the pantry to carry it, her pocket was a safe
{place to put it.
It was lato before the horses had
been sent round; luncheon had to be
eaten hurriedly and last orders given;
the carriage was at the door, and tho
whole party set off for Ardenshaugh
only just in timo to catch their train.
The note was not delivered before
they left, and was thereafter genuinely
forgotten. Mrs. Simpson had much
to see to in her master's absence.
Certain changes were to be made in
the house. She put on a commoner
dress next day, and Ronald's note remained in the pocket of the ono she
-hung up in her closet.
CHAPTER X.
TUB   DIB  28   CAST.
Ronald waited patiently, longingly,
Vonderingly, at last angrily, for the
.reply to his letter that never came.
Was this the end of Muriel's friendship ? Gould she not spare time or attention to enable her to write one
kindly word 1 Gould she not sympathize
with him in his trouble, or wus she
porchaftce angry because ho hud told
her that he owed so much to her ii
fluence ? Had that touched her prido 1
Oh, that could hardly be! Perhaps it
was Leslie's doing—he might have seon
Ronald's letter, and forbidden her to
reply. Well, whatever the cause, it
was clear that ho would ask for neither
help nor sympathy again. He must,
as he had said, stand or fall alone.
The two days' grace his father had
aceerded him had elapsed. Bennett
had sternly determined that the backslider must be admonished, all the
more faithfully since he was his only
ton; and he did not spare to carry out
his determination. Ronald listened
■doggedly to the admonition, which,
"while it exposed his weakness, his
want of faith, his obstinacy, his un-
filial self-will, showed also that his
father failed to understand either his
scruples or his regrets. He made no
attempt to reply; but he kissed his
mother fondly as he bade her goodnight, and before day broke he was on
his road to Edinburgh.
There was a sound in the manse of
"an exceeding bitter cry'' when, led
by some secret uneasiness early to his
room, his mother saw the untouched
bed and realized that he had fled from
his home.
Never in their previous sorrow had
her husband seen her give way to such
vehement grief; and, with her wailing
fresh in his ears, he hurried to make
all possible enquiries; and though ho
struggled hard to keep up a show of
sternness, his self-confidence was, in
truth, somewhat rudely shaken.
fit could obtain no clew to the
secret of his son's Bight. Knowing
•very short out well, Ronald had
avoided the neighboring railway-stations and had walked a considerable
distance before he took a Fife train,
nnd so crossed the ferry to Edinburgh.
All trace of him was completely lost,
Mid ugly fears were whispered about
aa to his safety. Meanwhile, in tho
town he hod many a narrow escape of
recognition*, but by carefully avoiding
the streets and hoars in which he was
most likely to meet his friends, he did
•scape, and soon his appearanco wus
so altered that a careless passer-by
would not have known hiin.
Who haa not heard ef the pitiful
struggles, the bitter disappointments,
that await the needy who have no recommendation but their need, and no
companion but their hunger? It is so
terribly easy for a hot-headed boy to
flip out of his place in the world, bo
easy to baffle pursuit, so easy to secure
oblivion, except at some one fireside;
but having slipped away in search of
freedom and a living, the Grst seems
often purchasable only at the expense
of the hut.
Ronald had a small sum of money
belonging to him.   Lady Forbes had
presented him, in his babyhood, with
a note, which hud boen accumulating
for him in tho bank ovor sinco; but
the deposit-receipt wus at tho munse,
and he would not writo for it—to do
so would be to confess himsolf beaten;
and bo, with some pounds lying in hia
>i&uie at Tillybodle, ho often lacked a
meal in Edinburgh. His mother, who
steadily refused to bolievo that harm
had befallen him, trusted that before
long he would claim this very receipt;
but she did not guess the extent of his
obstinate pride.
Sometimes he earned a few shillings
by copying; once he was paid for an
article iu the old debating-olub stylo
whioh he took to a second-rate paper.
But precarious work would not do,
and no one would tako a clerk without
a single reference of any kind, nor
even a respectable home address.
Ronald sunk lower as day by day
went hopelessly by. He grow more
slovenly, less active in searching for
work, and would ovon earn u stray
sixpence by taking a message, and
spend mnro of it on whisky than on
food, loitering afterward about tho
doors of tho public-house.
Of his mother he thought as littlo as
possible, striving to ignore her piyn,
and nourishing his prido by dwelling
on his father's harsh and stern ways.
Sometimes he wondered if he should
emigrate, but the old craving for adventure wbb gone. He had 110 money,
and tho prospect of working his way
out was far less delightful when seon
near at hand than when dreamed of at
tho manse fireside, A strange listless-
ness and disinclination for exertion oppressed him and made him shrink
from any such decisive stop. Poor lad!
ho did not know that want of food
was rapidly telling on his young
strength.
It was time, full time, that he
should be saved, if saved ho were to
bo, from losing himself altogether.
Rescue came in tho shape of a recruiting-sergeant, whose quick eye observed the broad shoulders of the youth
who slouched in to get a glnss nt midday, eating hungrily the while a hunch
of stale bread.
"You'd fare better than that with
us, my lad," said ho. "A fellow like
you had better be serving the Queen
than earning chance pennies iu the
street."
Ronald laughed, "I suppose I'm
good enough to bo food for powder at
least, though for nothing else,"
"You may do a good deal worse
than take tho shilling, young man.
You speak as though you'd had education—if you havo, you'll soon got on."
"Get on to what, sergeant? Can
you show me chapter aud verso,
now?—I don't want any recruiting
stories," said Ronald.
"I wouldn't try any on you," said
the sergeant- who saw that this was
not exactly a common recruit, and he
proceeded to givo a sufficiently business-like account of a soldier's prospects.
Ronald listened without evincing
much interest, except when the man
apoke of the chances of promotion.
"Why, our own colonel rose from the
ranks," said he; "and what one man
has done another may do."
At this Ronald's eyes Hushed, nnd,
with barely a moment's pnuso for reflection, he threw his cup on tho table:
"On with your ribbons, then; I may
as well try soldiering—it'll bo u change,
anyhow."
If the sergeant smiled at the phraso
Ronald did not observe it, und ni he
walked away ho hardly realized that
ho had bound himself without power
to change,
A very few days of his now lifo recalled him to something of his former
self; good food, clean quarters, and
regular hours restored his body and
his mind and ho shuddered us ho
thought of the depths to which ho hud
sunk during the short time that had
elapsed since he left home. He oven
determined that he would write and
tell his mother of tho step he hud
taken; but again the remembrance of
his father's angry scorn made him
pause, and whilo he hesitated he was
recognized by u gentleman who, ns he
passed up to the Castle, glanced with
a professional eye at the squad of
recruits engagad in the mysteries of
the ballauce-step.
Inquiry satisfied him of the correctness of his surmise, and he left Edinburgh in consequence hy an early
train,
"Muriel, I have found your missing
man," said ho, as ho entered tho drawing-room at Ardouahnugh.
"Oh, Frank! where? What has he
been doing?' she exclaimed, while Sir
Duncan looked up from his book.
"That 1 don't know, but he is now
a private in the Second Highlanders.
I saw him drilling at the Castle,"
"Enlisted! How angry his father
will bel And oh, what a blow for poor
Mrs. Bennett!"
"I thought he'd do that," said Sir
Duncan. "He'll make a capital boI-
dier—the lifo will just suit htm."
"But, papa, a private soldier's is
hardly the position ono expected for
him—with his education, too. Oh dear,
I'm sorry I"
"Ho could scarcely afford to be nn
officer,'1 said Loslio.
"No, of course not, though it ia vory
wrong that ihat should be so, Frank,
But eun't we find anything better for
him than to be a private I Can't we
buy him oft'?"*
The result of this conversation wns
that a telegram was sent at once to
the nianso, and was followed next day
by Sir Duncan in person. What passed there surprised oven hiin, well as
he knew the pride and reserve of the
couple with whom he had to deal.
At the news of his son's bodily safety Mr. Bennett rocovorod his composure and launched into invectives
against tho profession whicli, as he
said, Ronald must havo known that he
disapproved and condemned.
The mother, shaken as sho was by
grief and anxiety, shed fresh tours of
joy on hearing that her boy wus found,
but sided so far with hor husband that
she thought Ronald was lowering himself utterly by enlisting in the ranks.
"He might havo avoided that, at least,"
she said, "knowing his father's views."
