RcKlstert Register!!
:!„ ,;[OT:]l*rt*T '
A general election for the Provincial legislature must be held this
jeer—will in nil probability be held
Terjr mon. A general election for
the' Dominion Home of Commons
ii quite i likely to take plane this
jeer*. Under then oirounietahUes,
we feel it to be i duty to urge upon
all qualified persons who hare not
alre»dy ddnB so to place tt once
their names upon the Voter's List.
There is nt)t a day tt) be lost. You
must he registered two months in
order to bo entitled to vote, and an
election may not be further off than
that. Wi1 fool confident tliat there
are considerable mini hers in almost
ayery..District who have neglected
this, duty. That .there were many
in the District of New Westminster is shown by the fact that during
the past thrtin months one hundred
and tw.nty-liliic names have hUffi ad
ded, and tliel't* are more still to dome ;
and there ilr'e probably other Districts in wliillll the people have been
equally remiss in (hit respect. It is
scarcely creitttable to the people that
so much indifference is displayed
about' the exercise of tlie electoral
franchise. . Under, our system of
free government, every citizen tnvea
it to the stattl in general anil to his
own ' Tjistt'lct iu particular tu exercise'' the'-franchise'wisely 'and w't'lli
An apathetic elfbtnrate . makos all
indifferent government. If the taxpayer*. jla; not; ntUnlftst enough interest in tho conduct of public affairs
to place their names' on tbe list anil
go to the poll, it is idle to expect
anything, like good government. A
people wlm do nut prize their political rights stilliciHith' to claim and
exercise -them -Mr* not lit for self-
government , There .certainly never
was a time in the history of this
country when it was more important
tlmt the people" should wakli lip to a
full realisation of their ilitHvirlii.il
responsibility in. this respect: A
change, a radical change, in the government ia urgently demanded.
Looking at tho present condition of
matters, one' is apt to concludu that
aim change must be for the better.
But that ia not the principle upon
whicli the peopld should act. Let
every qualified parson not on the
register take immediate steps for
placing himself there; and when
the electun comes round, let every
voter go to the poll determined to
do hit part towards placing tilts very
i heat available men in the new House.
There lira ,iome good men in the
' present House; but the average is
• low. It must be raised. The Pro-
; vitrei need) the service's of ita Wat
men juat now, and it rests with the
people to tend them io tbe; Wheel,
1 for the ship ia undoubtedly drifting
i among rocki I Then there art! other
reeiom why the Hits ahould be filled
i tip. The Voting pdwer it apt'to he
takon as the meaaUMI of tbe impor
ttnee of lilt' ProVifee. tt II tile
gauge of the relative1 importance nlitl
claims of the various Districts. It hits

how much importance} Is tltacbetl to
that [ jOnt would .imuj'l'nt (hit uot
ably would etch District make tn
effort te> put forth its full strength
at the fouling election, bHt that each
individual, polling division would bt
fired with t 'audible ambition to
give a good account of itself At the
poll. In vieWof all the circumstances, surety an earnest effort should be
made to nil up the register in every
District..!'fotiWUik'active', patriotic

Scientific JctiBccIlmtB:
The colnpiiss has been found to be
scliSitlve tU certain atmospheric iier-
tiirballoita wltiiih do hot aliect the
bardmetif.
A Swiss expitriinentei; is said to have
produced artificial mOfcher - of - pearl
which cannot be distinguished from
tho genuine. ^
In a series of lectures in Chinese,
this American misstuh at Peking is
teaching modern science to the native
schools.   Great interest is manifested.
Electricity hat been, applied to pile-
driving; a water wheel furiiiidiiiig the
Sower, which is transmitted by two
ynamo-electric machines with connecting wires to the pile driver at a
considerable distance away. ■  ,
j Observations upon Btfs|an railways
have rettllted in H.iowmg, Tttr the
period of six months, that seventy-
seven per cent, of the fractures of
tires occurred when the temperature
was below zero, four per cent, at zero,
nnd only nineteen per cent, at higher
temperatures.
Dr. Werner Siemetw ctinsidft-s the
Use of the elebtric light to be absolutely free front risk of (ire, even in
the most inflammable structures,
Contrary to general belief, the electric
tension required is so low that no
measurable spark can pas* between
two wires or to Other objects.
Aa examiner Of recruits drafted into
the Gorman army stxtes that a lung
series of careful measurements have
established uot only that the height
of a man varies very ci-nsideralil.y at
different times of the day, but also
that this variation ocuiir-1 witli great
regularity in every individual. The
greatest change in height unnerved
was an inch and a half:
Prof. TnuimiieUOriide'li has lately
shown that malarial int'octitm may he
ciiiisi'il b,y the hooping of himta-plants",
even iu districts where malaria ia unknown, The unwholesome luikionce,
however, is nnt duo to the plants
themselves, but to the dump earth
surrounding tlleih and thu lie,Uud und
badly . ventilated condition uf the
I'Ubms ill which they ai'e kept.
Dr. Helot, of Bulbec, France, [jives
a case of an epidemic of diplitlitinu in
a previously healthy village Henr-Cuux.
A tripe dealer had, thrown quantities
of animal refuse into a'pond near his
hilllse, and whon It was denounced as
a nusiauce the ittud aud water were
applied to the land as manure. A
severe epidemic of diphtheria broke out
and lasted six months, A similar error
waa committed a second time, and with
the same reuilt.4.
The gleam nf falling water, according to Mr. J, S. Gardner, attracts curtain insects i|uire an powerfully asthma
artificial light. In Leiiml ho has
observed ninth after uiutti to fly deliberately Into a waterfall and disappear, lie thinks trout prefer broken
df reams ou account of the abundance
of food furnished by the self-destruction of tho insects, and not—-as is
usually supposed — because of the
greater aeration of the water:
It has been held by some medical
men that the best treatment Iff froi.cn
individuals is the uradual applioatiun
of heat, while a few experimenters
have claimed that the warming should
be rapid. To settle tbe matter, Sap-
Iflohinkski line made a series of very
careful experiments upon dtfgs, with
thii following rostilts: Of twenty ani-
nntls treated hy tho method of gradual
resiiseitaflon in a cold room, fourteen
perished; of twenty placed at dltce in
a warm apartment, eight died; Whilo
of twenty immediately put into a hot
bath all recovered. -
A consideration nf various phenomena has ted Dr. C. W. Kieinmis tn
ftuggeift the hypothesis that thu sun
derives from iiitorplandtnry space
hydrogen, hydrocarbons and oxygon,
by which its heat ie kept up. The
products of . Cfombustinn — aqueous
vapor, cafbtiidc an hydride and carbonic
oxide—are returned to space, where
thoy gradually become separated into
the original gaiei through the action
of the solar rays at a moderate temperature. Thus the heat diffused in
space by tho sun is hot wasted, but is
made to conserve its owii enorgy by
preparing fuel for ihe cdntinued existence of its flfM.
A remarkable phenomenon due to
refraction has been twice witnessed by
Her Hakouseti - Hansen in Norway.
On both odeasioiiB, at about three
o'clock in the afternoon, a rose-colored
stripe appeared, stretching across the
shy from horth-weat Ut east. From
tlie middle* of this rose a vertical column of n sordewhat lighter red color,
and inclining on its western side to a
shade of fellow.; tha Whole being intensely bright. In about teh minutes
the colors gradually faded, leaving
behind a blackish-gray streak. The
strikirig ■ apparition ef this vertical
Column recalled to tile observer the
descriptions given , in past ages of
bloody cruMel seen ill tlie heavtfrit,
arid regarded as pmphotio of coining
w*rs and pestilfnce.

Railway Work.
,/j'Iti appears that the contractor intends concentrating his forces upon
that portion of the line west of
Emory, with a view to its utilization
as a' menus of transport, in connection-with work iu thu interior. With
that object in view, we heat that it
is proj-dsed to pntdnaforcRof three
hundred Lower Fraser Indiana to
clear the line und have it ready for
one thousand Chinese graders, short
ly to arrive from beyond the Pacific.
Tht only -objection to tho employment of io large a force of Indians
ie that it may seriously interfere
with the fishing industry ; but that
is no concern of the railway contractor. Wore it not for this consideration*, we should hail with unmixed
satisfaction the employment of large
numbers of Indians upon these works.
Aa was suggested in a former article,
we should be glad to sec an effort
made to induce Indians to come from
other parts of the province to find
employment on the railway works
and at the canneries. The more Indian labor can be utilized in these
avenues the better for the country
and for the Indians themselves.
"With Chinese labor it is very different, and one looks forward with feelings the opposite of pleasurable to
tlie prospect of hordes of Chinese
swarming along the line. For such
a state of things it would probably
bo wrong to blame the contractor.
To a certain extent one is almost
compelled to admit the necessity for
resorting to Chinese labor, nnd in
the; absence of uny restrictive stipulations, it- would be absurd to attempt to question tho right of the
contractor to employ whatever sort
of labor he pleases. Capt. Moore
has received instructions to land
steel rails at the following points
along the river: —Port Haney
(Maple Ridge), St. Mary's Mission,
Harrison River, Mariaville, and at
the Indian village nearly opposite
Hope. Construction is to be puelieJ
vigorously from Emory down to the
bluff bebw Union Bar, so that
freight for points above Yale can be
landed there and transported ovaline line, nnd thus the most critical
part of steamboat navigation will be
avoided. On the Lower Fraser proper, the most important centre will
be Port Haney. From this favorable point it would appear to be the
intention to prosecute work both up
and down, and thero are no present'
indica'tious of. an initial poiut lower
down. This is as it should be. We
have repeatedly pointed out the
material advantages to tho producers
of commencing oil the' river, instead
of on the seaboard ; and tbe interests
of the producers ought nob to be lost
eight of, seeing they are synonimous
with the befit interests of the country. Not that wo imagine this to
have becn:the primary consideration
in shaping the contractor's programme. ' Wo would hardly have a
right to oxpsct that. It is not very
difficult to understand the theory
upon which the programme is based.
Tbe grand object being to utilize tbe
lower section in carrying on work in
tli'c interior, that portion covering
the, bad navigation above Hope becomes tlie most urgent necessity.
Next comes tlmt portion reaching to
Pitt river or New Westminster,
wheronayigiition for ocean vemels is
always open. It is towards the
speedy' completion of these sections
that tlie contractor will strain every
nerve; and it would not bo surprising if the cars were running between
the tidal waters and the interior in
1883. If we have correctly sketched
the programme which the contractor
has marked out for himself, the
farmers on the, rich delta and prairie
lands of the "Lower Fraser will have
good cause to congratulate them
selves, notwithstanding the serious
drawback of Chinese labor. A brisk
cash market will have been brought
to their very door. They will not
be under tlio necessity of going round
to Burrard Inlet, there to compete
with foreign produce.
across the gulf and down to Esqnimalt, and so depriving the Mainland
of the terminus and consequent maritime advantages; and we'1 took occasion fittingly to characterize the audacity of that act. In dealing with
the estimates last week, it transpired
that the tax-payers of the Mainland
have been called upon to pay a considerable sum, tbe price of the fradu-
lent maps—the "trunkful of maps"
gotten up for the express purpose of
robbing them of their railway terminus and its cognnte advantages.
If this is not "adding insult to injury" we do not understand the import uf that expression. We are at
a loss to know what the House is
thinking about, more particularly
the members for Now Westminster
who permitted themselves to be led
into committing the folly of supporting that appeal to the Queen. The
petition with which Mr. DeCosmos
was intrusted made no reference
whatever to this crotchet, and the
House has a right to know bow it
came to be introduced at all, If it
was introduced by the connivance of
Ministers, then has a gross breach of
privilege been committed. If by
Mr. DeCosmos alone, that gentleman
has been guilty of a flagrant breach
of trust; In the latter event it would
be tbe duly of Ministers to repudiate
and denounce the act and treachery
of their Agent. Iu any case, tbe
House owes it to the country and to
itself to have the matter cleared up.
Had the petition to the Queen covered this ground, nnd had it been
known that the. very maps, the disingenuous maps, which occasioned a
good deal of indignation at the time,
were to he employed in the mission
nnd paid for by the jteople, it would
scarcely have been possible, , one
would imagine, to have carried it
through the House. But if, by any
after trick ol this kind, matters can
be fraudulently imported into a state
document after having received formal parliamentary sanction, why, all
check, all confidence is gone—nny
conceivable or inconceivable outrage
maybe perpetrated in the name of
the people, and they may be called
upon*, as they have in this instance,
to pay for the very rope with which
the traitor would have hanged them
if he could. Happily in this instance "the engineer was hoist on
his own petard." But we repeat, if
the House has nny self-respect it
ought to institute an investigation
into this extremely ugly-looking
transaction and ascertain who is the
traitor — the Government or the
Agent.
Editorial Notes.
Tha labor question is indeed, assuming an alarming aspect in this part of
the country. The railway contractor
is hiring all the able-bodied Indians at
$2 a day, and where the Indian labor
usually employed in connection with
the fisheries is to come from this year
it is diSicult to say. We hear that steps
are also- Demit; taken'for securing a
large number of coast Indians—rumor
says one thousand—for the railway
works. While glad to see a disposition
to utilize Indian labor to such an extent upon these works, one is naturally
apprehensive about the interests of the
important fishing industry, in whieh a
Certain proportion of Indian labor appears to he almost indispensable.
Who Is the Traitor?
Some timo ago we pointed out tlio
fact that Mr. DeOosmoa fradulently
imported into tho petition with
which he hud been interested hia
hobby about curving the  railway

The paid organs of the Government
are endeavoring to lull the public into
false security respecting the graving
dock, When before the Committee,
Mr. Walkem said there was really no
reason to doubt that the Imperial and
Canadian contributions would suffice
to complete the dock; but now his
own Engineer estimates the cost at
3758,304.01, aud it'is stated that a
still further quantity of 4,286 tons of
cement will be required I Notwithstanding all this, theso organs, lisping
with the Government pap in their
mouth, declare that all is right, and
that the present crowd should have yet
another four years' lease of power, if
for no other reason than what they know
about dock building, Egad! they know
a deal too much about it! Another
four years of such work would bankrupt Columbia,

An Ottawa exchange of recent date
says: —''"Commander Cheyhe, now
here, had a consultation to-day with
Professor Bell, of tlie Geological Survey, in regard to the further exploration nf Hudson Bay and the straits,
with a vfow to settle the question of a
practicable route for the -shipment of
the products of the North-West from
Fort Chu-ttmhtll to'Europe "by that
route. It will be remembered that
Prof. Bell has himself ■ visited nearly
the entire coast of Hudson Buy, and
made the passage through Hudson,
Straits iu September, some years since.
He is quite sanguine of the practicability of. this route. It is understood
that, Professor Oheyne will oiler Ills
services- to the Government: to take
charge of an exploration. He had an
interview with Sir Leonard Tilley to*
day, who will bring the matter under
tlie consideration of the Government."

Much Seeded Legislation.
For oiitiu \ve*nkve it in our power to
compliment Mr. Walkem upon the
introduction of what, ou the fare of it,
appears "to bo a good-measurt.. ' \Vt
rcfi'i- tg the bill introduced on Thursday under the title of* "Convictions
Jlill,"- He explained th* object of the
measure to be to facilitate the administration er-jtof-M'Ubduf thdloc^r*A'ud
provincial laws by'providing that no
conviction ntade by a Justice of the
Peace under satd laws should be quashed, removed to any of Her Majesty's
courts of record i,n, ther ProVinue, or

Informality iu the wording of said con
vittion or ordar, if the (|onviction it

also provides that in cases of appeal
the Judge to wir'-m eu-ch appeal is
made cl10.ll bear and derormino the
charge upon ita ments not withstand
ing such informality aforesaid, and if
the nceused bu founil guilty the court
ur judge shall sustain said "conviction
or order and amend the same if' neces
sary. \Ve lmvo nnt had an opportunity
of examining thu bill, but looking at it
in thu light of the explanation'of iti
provisions oiven to the House by the
Attorney-General, wa are disposed tn
welcome it aa a most desirable piece of
legislation. We have had repeated
occasion to animadvert upon the tendency of certain of our Supreme Court
Judges to quash 'conviction on the'
most frivolous grounds, and wo sincerely hone this bill may prove an
emotive eheuk to that tendency;.

"Ah! Loose my hand! Let me go!"
she almost panted, as with laboring
breath, and disturbed visage, sho tried
to get hor hand free. "Uncle, you
hurt me!" she at Inst cried petulantly,
M if petulance would reliove the agony
of her overstrained nerve*-. He laughed roughly, aa he Hung away, rather
than Wsegjjier hand, and continued in
the lafiie grimly'jocular strain to banter her coir^p^ing: hor skeleton in the
cupboard. Sua' felt in her heart aick-
enmg qualms of fear, as ho thus burst
open tbe door aa it wero, took the
specter out, and dandled it relentlessly
before her eyes, aghast as they were at
the unexpected revelation.
''Jiujcv,jrhaf lies those relations of

she was a graceless baggage and she
lias deceived the lad himself toiuich an

That's just the difference in this world.
What a/qq£ you must have been, onco

He turned toward the door, whon
she, suddenly springing up, ran after
him, seined his 'hand,* and exclaimed,
agony and apprehension, pleading and
urgency, in her voice:
"Ohble iolm.'U pitiful, I pray. Re-
menjBfflHiiy poo'i* girls! What are they
to do? What will become of us all"?
Oh, miserable woman..thatJ am, why

"Ah, why?" he retorted, almost
brutally. "Being a parson's wife, you

do. flUTortne, I'm an old pagan, like

away, leaving hor alono with hor fears,
her misery, and her humiliation..
''What floes he mean?" she keptre-

as shtj-paded about the room'. ''What

could I tell him ? Why did ho not wait,
instead of speaking to me in that manner, n's'if he'wanted to tear tho vet*}*
heart oitt of iny breast. How can any
one speak, or explain—how can n nervous woman collect herself, with a man
glaring at her more like a devil than u

who are .weaker than themselves. I
belieyVlf 1 said what I thought, that I
could'•piake even a man blush—if that

self-command in this way," she 'added,
•suddenly collecting and composing herself, and seating herself in her rocking-
chair, she iwnyed'.slight|y tOjBtid fro,,
with clasped hamU, and eyes fixed on
the ground, lost in a painful, terrified
calculation of chances.
"I-rmusti think, think, think about
it," she thought},, within herself. "It in,
this thinking and. calculating which
wears me out moro than anything olso.
Oh!" (aa her mind, despite the necessity for-dweUing on the matter in hand,
persistently,revetted tu its grief and
woes)f,(""TIns life is a hard., dreary
business; and what brutes, men,are,,
Hard,) grasping - wretches! They keep
us in slavery. They hate to see us
free,, lest they should lone our blind
submission to them; I know they do.
If we try to make oui-aelvei free, they
grind us to, powder. Judith and Delphine are right, yes, they nre perfectly
right* in 'ihity'principles, but they do
not HmW, as 'I do, rfhul will become,

the only Way for a woman to find a tittle ease and comfort in this world. It
U the only thing to do, unless they
want to, be crushed to death for defying tlio universal law."
Thl|jWs;s .the form nf reflection into
which, 'Airs..Conisbrough's emotions
usually crystallized after they had been
deeply stirred, as this morning. She
spoke as she felt. ,8110 loved eiuc, and
hated discomfort, and nothing moved
her nit profoundly en the loss of the

ad down, and when the girls cuine in

have quito decided that it is the best,
and there is no use. in delaying it. He
was in a-very good tetnper, and, for
him, quite gentle all the time we were

"The sky has' turned gray, and it
looks as if thore might be a storm."
"I'll put on my old things. I cannot wait." ,
"Well, Ood speed you, I say. I
shall bu trembling all, the time until
you return." I
Judith ran upstairs, and soon returned, ewjipped- evidently for a long
walk over a rough road, in strong
boots, her skirt kilted conveniently
high, and her soft, rough hat on hor
head. . Delphine came with her to the
door, looking wistfully at her.    ,
"Lot ine go, Judith," sho said suddenly.. "It is always you who have
the disagreeable things to do."
"You, child! don't talk nonsense,
and never fear. I am all right. Good-
hy!"
Delphine kissed heVMiand after her
unci watched hev down the sloping
tnarkot-placc. till sho turned a bend in
the I'badj and was lost to view. Judith
stepped forward at a pace which carried her quickly over the ground.
There was'notliing of What is popularly
known as ''masculine" in her movements, but they were free, graceful
and untrammeled; she did not hobble
on high heels, nor wear her garments
tied hack m such a manner as to impede her every motion. Her gown followed the old Danesdale rule for what
a gown should bo—it was not long
enough to catch the dirt, and it was
"walking width and striding sidth,"*aa
a gown should be. Tho walk she had
before her was one which required such
a gown and such a chaussure as she
wore — along a good country road,
which kept pretty much on the level
until she arrived at a brown, bleak-
looking village, which hud a weather-
beaten appearance, a green in the centre, with five old horses grazing upon
it. Thou the road became a rough one.
Beautiful, no doubt, in its varying
charm of uphill and downhill, in the
grand views of tbe high hills, and the
long, bare-backed fells which spread
around on every side; with the white,
sinuous roads traced over thorn; roads
which led over wild passes, and lonely
"commons" to other valleys and dales,
remoter even than this one. Lovely
in spring, iu summer; lovely, in a way,
at every season, but, on this gray October afternoon, invested with a certain savage melancholy, a bleak desolation unnoticed, probably, by most of
those who lived amidst, it, but which
had its undoubted influence upoh their
habits nnd their characters, and which
must have stirred an artist's heart, and
set a poet's brain working in lines
which he might havo made as rough
and abrupt as ho chose, but which, to
fully express tbe poetry of the scene,
must have had in them something both
of grandeur and of grace.
It was a strange, forsaken country,
full of antique, gray villages, which
mado no progress, and most of which
appeared gradually falling into decay,
inhabited by persons ninny of whom
had never been even into the neighboring Swaledale! All this district, in
the early days of English religious dissent, was ft stronghold of the people
called Quakers. Here and thoro, in
unexpected places, in archaic-looking
littlo towns, in tiny, half-forsaken
hamlets, will be found some little
square atono meeting-house, often incapable of holding moro than from a
dozen tu twenty persons. There was
such a meeting-house, though one
rather moro considerable iu size, in
the brown village through wliich Judith had passed, and in its dreary little yard woro moldering the bones of
some of these stem old "Friends,"
unindicated even by a name, with nothing to show them save the grass-
covered mound beneath which they
lay. Sturdy spirits, spartan souls tliey
had boon—spirits of tbo kind known
in thoir day as "God-fearing," a kind
one seldom meets with and seldom
hours of now. Looking round on the
present race, one fouls indeed that
they would be bard set to comprehend
those: ,"Go*d-fearing" men, or any of
'thoir*works and ways, or to understand
the spirit that breathed into mid animated them. Emascuhtto orthodoxy
faints away on tho one hand in incense
and altar bouquets of hot-house (lowers; on tho other dilutes its intellect
in the steam of "tea-meetings," in the
reck of muffins, nnd tho blasphemous
familiarity with tbe Deity of revival
hymns; while, opposed to it, rampant
secularism jeers at the notion of a
Doily, and ignorahtiy points the finger
at tho word "fear, being apparently
unable to comprehend that there is a
holy awe wliich ia as far removed from
abject terror as the exalted paganism
of Marcus Aurelius is removed from its
own blatant annihilation of what it is
plooaed to call the superstition of a.
Gud. Vociferously its. adherents denounce the God-fearing man as a puerile creature, a prey to timid superstition. Neither that orthodoxy, nor
this heterodoxy would know what to
make of the stern, oold religiousness
of those ancient "God-fearing" men,
any more than they could own anything to be good wliich lies outside the
pale'of their own dogmatism and their
own crotchets. "There were giants
n the earth in those days,'1 as Judith
Conisbrough often thought, for she
had a high opinion of these departed
Qunker dalesmen. Where is the horo
in the ranks either of secularism or orthodoxy wlio will bring the same concentrated fervor to boar upon his cause;
who will suffer all things and endure
all things, and such things as were
suffered and endured by those early
Methodists and .Quakers—-those "Godfearing," uncultivated rustics'!; ■* . •* ■
