current Events and Opinions.
Having published ft report of
Rev. G. B. Alton's lecture, wo now
givo tho reply which appeared in
tho Inst number of the Churchman's
Gazette. It is us follows:—The Hev.
G. Ij. Allen is a disappointed man,
and, consequently, a discontented
one; nnd, being unable, or unwilling
to trace bis disappoint ments to their
true source, viz., the Rev. G. B,
Allen himself, ho 1ms to find some
other object on whicli to vent his
spleen, and, with roally commendable courage, "goes for" the Church
of England. George Stephenson,
the father of railroads, was once
asked by a committee of the House
of Lords, who were enquiring into
the possible dangers of railroad
travelling, whether it wouldn't be a
very serious thing if a cow got on
to the track. "Yes," said George,
with a sober face, "it would bo n
vara serious thing for the coo." And
so in this case we have not folt the
Church of England tremble yet beneath the shock of Mr. Allen's at-
tack, ond wo ure dreadfully afraid
that the only satisfaction lie will
derive from it will be the sweofc applause of the sects amongst wliich
lie flutters like a bird from twig to
twig, a sort of animated hyphen, a
go-between, a connecting link without enough character to mark him
either as "fish or flesh or good red
herring." A man who can ho, a
Presbyterian, a Methodist and a
Baptist, all in a day, hns proved one
thing to a certainty, viz., thnt these
good peoplo are running the ecclesiastical business most extravagant
ly ; for if Mr. Allen can comprise
them all in his far-reaching and
widely-comprehensive liberality and
charity, surely it would be more
economical to shut down at least
two of the concerns, and "rising
above tlie petty peculiarities of de-
nomiiiationalisti),"soar into tlio pure
ether of a "clearer apprehension of
the principles of Clirislian brotherhood and fellowship 1" This is very
beautiful language, but it has the
disadvantage of being unpractical, a
circumstance as familiar, we imagine, to the writer of it as to ourselves; but then, though he wouldn't
for the world stono Stephen himself,
he is not unwilling to hold thn
clothes of some one elso engaged in
so amiable au exhibition of "Christian brotherhood." Stone away, Mr.
Allen, with nll the might of your
"broad Christian views and syinpttt
thies." Wo aro afraid your stone
is a rolling one, and didn't gather
much moss in New Westminster.

VOLUME 27
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, SATURDAY, APRIL 11, 1885.
NUMBER 29
Rev. Dr. Wild lately delivered a
lecture in Toronto on "The Future
of Britain and Canada." After
some introductory remarks the doctor traced the origin of Britain back
to Abraham, and took notice that
tho history of the literal descendants of Abraham for the first 1,500
years was recorded iu sacred and
profane history. One portion, viz..
one-sixth whom wc cull the Jews of
to-day can be traced down through
the centuries to this present moment. Ho showed that certain pro
phonics relating to the Jews had
literally boon fulfilled, and then
traced the course of the other flye-
ftixths which in the Bible are called
the House of Israel, and by general
consent spoken of by historians as
tho Ten Lost Tribes of Israel. And
just as the future of tho Jews can
be forecast from the prophecies that
yet remain to he fulfilled, so cau the
future of the Ten Lost Tribes bo
foretold, whieh nre organized, viz.,
Britain. He quoted a number of
prophecies and certain facts iu history, and showed how they agreed,
He showed that in Isaiah, 40 Chap.
and Cth verse, Britain was named.
We translate it Covenant, but iu
the Hebrew it is Britain. He theu
went on to show the natural growth
of the world in its organized form.
First in the individual Adam. Ho
had certain rights, but when Eve
came into existence his rights must
lie modified, and he mado agreeable
to hers. When Gain coines, there
must bo a still further division of
right The family organization
would next be established. Then
would como clanships, a still higher
form of organization. Then tribes
came into existence, the individual
all the timo being adjusted to this
extension of law and organization.
Then came the state, the nation,
and last the empire. Hore the Doctor asked, "Are we at tlio end of
organization 1 Is there not something ■ else more comprehensive that
will unfold and adjust and legislate
for the general interests of mankind 'I" He answered there was, and
that would be a universal parliament. Britain would take the lead.
Imperial federation is the first step
uud will become un accomplished
fact.   The lecturer touched on Can
ada, showing that its history and
future were in connection with Britain. When Imperial federation
comes to maturity Canada will have
moro independence . locally, and
greater independence and security
generally. He quoted statistics comparing Canada with the United
States and other countries, proving
that Canada was a good country to
live in. Ho stated tliat Canada had
3,"250,000 square miles moro than
all the United States, and that there
was more wheat land north-west of
St. Paul than east or south-east,
He then spoke cf the present appearance of Louis Riel in the North-
West Territory, and asserted that
the time hud come for the suppression of such agitators, nnd the control and pulling down of Fenians
and dynamiters, and that tho loyalty
of Canada might be relied upon in
any emergency. The disloyal are a
boisterous minority and the loyal
ones are a heroic majority.
New Fomidlaiid Politics.
Halifax, N. S.( Mar. 23.-New*
fomidlaiid politics are atill in a very
exciting condition. Advices from St.
John's represent tho feeling betwoen
Catholics and Protestants as increasing
iu bitterness rather than being allayed.
Trade is thoroughly demoralized; added to this is the probable failure of
fisheries owing to tlio enormous quantities of ice on the coast, and tho consequent sonii-atarvatiou among the
people in the outlying districts of the
island that must ensue from the short
catch of lish this year, and the outlook
is vory blue. Tho enormous catch in
Norway increases the gloominess of the
commercial situation, The real gravity
of tho political crisis has boon suppressed in Newfoundland papers.
There are twenty thousand Catholics
in St. John's to ten thousand Protestants. Private advices sny the Catholics were terribly exasperated during
tlio passago of the ultra-Protest ant
resolutions through the legislature, and
it was unly by the exercise of tho
greatest forbearance and calmness on
the part of the Catholic leaders that
tho mob was prevented from taking
chargo of the parliament building and
its members. Feeling had risen to
such a pitch that one unfortunate word
would havo ''act the whole city ablaze,
and the lives and property of tho
Orani»omen would not havo been
worth twopence," A leading Catholic
ecclesiastic says "Things will bo a
great deal worse before they aro better." A lively fracas occurred in the
Newfoundland legislature tlio other
day. Hun. Francis Wintou, a member of parliament for Bonnvista, nnd
lato editor of the morning Chronicle,
Iind been oxpollod from the government and his position of linancial sec-
rotary. He then joined tho opposition. Noxt day Winton entered the
Btii'voyoi'-geiiBral's ollice and mot there
Gourde M, Julinntou, law adviser to
the legislature and law partner of Sir
William Wliitoway, tho premier. An
altercation ensued, and Winton flourished a stick and finally spat iu Johnson's face. The result was that Win-
ton was so badly punished that he
could not attend to hig"parliamoiit»ry
duties for several days.
Is the Cltj or Mexico Doomed?
The City of Mexico is slowly but
surely sinking into Lako Toxcoco, and
if means are not taken to prevent such
n calamity, it will be under water in
about fifty years. Humboldt's measurements taken early iu thia century
gpvo the lako a dopth of sixteen foet
ten inches, and now it is nowhere
mow than six feet eight inches, while
careful observations in the last twenty
yours show that tho bottom of the
lako has risen uniformly onu and one-
half inches a year, and is now but nine
foet below the level of tho principal
streets nf tho city. This seriously impedes drainage, the fall of tho sewers
being too slight to produce a proper
flow of refuse matter evon hi dry weather, while in tho rainy season, whon
the streets are sometimes Hooded from
tho lake, it is completely chocked.
The ground on which the city stands
is therefore saturated to within two or
threo feet of the surface with decaying matter; poisonous gases rise and
thousands die yearly from malarial
and malignant fevers. Ten years ago,
when tho population was about 2li0,-
000, ths annual death rate was 3 per
cent., or 8,000 parsons, nnd this percentage has doubtless increased with
the growth of the place, little attention liuing paid to sanitary improvu
ments. Tho city suffered from five
great inundations from 1553 to 1030
and in 1730 a drain 12 miles long, 100
to 180 feut deop and 200 to 300 feet
wido, which had occupied 100 years in
construction, was completed. Tho
efficacy of this does not seem to have
lasted, and it is now urged that large
sums bo expended in draining Lako
Toxcoco dry and carrying off the surplus moisture of tho Valley of Mexico
to save the ancient city of tho Aztecs
from destruction.- Sfprliujfietd Republican.

ftnlur-lny Horning, April ll, IKK.1.
After u long nnd apparently hopeless effort, the Victoria regular op
position seems to have found a candidate in tho person of Mr. R. T.
Williams to oppose Hon. Mr. Duck.
Mr. Williams is a very respectable
gentleman, but we are of opinion
that ho has made a great mistake.
The people of Victoria will certainly
not be likely to give up Mr, Duck
as a cabinet minister for Mr. "Williams as an opposition member,
It is quite possible thnt the battle
which occurred between the Russian and Afghan troops on the SOth
was tlio result of iv misunderstanding, or of the misdirected zeal of
some of the outposts. In this case
it may not precipitate hostilities
between Britain and Russia. But
if it be true that Russia was the
aggressor, nnd that her troops have
taken possession of Pendjeh, we do
not seo how a declaration of war
can very well be avoided.
The Ottawa Free Press pertinently remarks: One of Mr. Gladstone's crimes against Gordon was
his refusal to send Zobehr Pasha to
him ut Khartoum. It was rumored
at tlie time that the British premier hnd no confidence in this ex-
slave owner. To-day he is a prisoner on board an English man-of-war,
the written proof of bis conspiracy
having been discovered. Did or did
not Mr. Gladstone act wisely in refusing Gordon the kind of relief he
was unwittingly asking for'?
The Reason Why.
There is sometimes a vast difference between an action when done
by one person and another action
exactly similar in its nature, hut
done by a different person. For
instance, American interests on the
Isthmus of Panama are endangered,
and President Cleveland dispatches
there a strong enough force to protect them. It is perfectly proper
and right that he should do so,
But suppose that Mr. Blaine had
been elected and had taken similar
action, how the people would have
heen frightened! The New York
papers would have raised a prolonged and deafening howl about
Mi*. Blaine's dangerous foreign policy, and his unwarranted interference in the affairs of our neighbors. Geo. William Curtis and his
kind would have chattered until a
general impression wus created that
wo were embarking in a career of
foreign conquest that would assuredly end in our utter ruin. Mr.
Blaine was not elected, however,
and it is President Cleveland who
is taking this action. So, of course,
nobody says a word against it, and
everybody agrees that it is precisely
the proper thing to do. Yet wherein lies the difference 1—Seattle Post.
What seems so incomprehensible to
Post (which is a Blaine journal) is
plain enough to those who do not
permit party preferences to obscure
their judgments. The peopbj have
perfect confidence in the judgment
and uprightness of Cleveland, but
they were very suspicious of Blaine.
That is the difference.
Woman Suffrage.
Tt ought to be generally understood that there is a new school act
for this province which enables
women to vote at school elections.
Sect. 19 of tho act says: "Any
householder or freeholder resident
in any school district for a period of
six months previous to the election,
aiul the wifeoi any such householder
or freeholder, shall be entitled to
vote at any school meeting held in
Huch district, and for the election of
trustees; provided Chinese and Indians shall not vote." In cities it
is provided that there shall be three
school wards, in each of which two
trustees Bhall he elected. The same
provision is made in cities for foinale
voters, but each male and female
must vote only in the wnrd in which
he or Bhe resides, and can vote only
for the candidates offering in thut
ward. Sect. 24 of tlio uct provides
that all voters in cities must register
their name with the proper ollicer.
The oflicer for this city is the government agent, and mimes must be
registered with him this year before
the end of Mny. Wo hope the people Will keep these facts in view,
and put themselves in a position in
whicli they will Ite able to exercise
the rights conferred upon them by
the act. Let it be remembered ; (1)
That every freeholder or householder, and his wifo, resident for six
months in this city, has a right to
vote for school trustee ; ('2) that intending voters must register their
names nt the government land oilieo
before the end of May: (3) and that
each voter can vole only in the
ward in wliich he lives and is registered. In rural municipalities registration is not necessary. The aot
places a woman exactly upon the
same standing us her husband with
respect to school elections, and it is
to be hoped the women will show
their appreciation of the privilege
conferred upon thom by taking a
real interest in the election of school
trustees, hi the cities votes are
taken by ballot; but in rural districts it is open voting. The act
provides Lhat at the end of the present school year (the 3rd Monday in
June) all the trustees shall retire,
and an entirely new board shall be
elected. The trustee obtaining the
highest number of votes in each
ward shall serve two years, and the
one receiving the next number shall
serve one year. No provision at all
seems to have beon made for tho retirement of trustees who have been
elected by acclamation. Perhaps it
was thought that when women exercised the franchise there would be
no possible chance of an election by
acclamation!
That Telegram.
On Wednesday morning an extra
was issued from this oflico containing the following announcement:
Viotoria, April 7.—Tlio cabinet
inut at 10 o'clock ut Ottawa this morning and sottled the vexed question
respecting Canadian Pacific Railway.
It is understood on the highest authority that over §15,000,000 has been
granted tho company, and that the
nrrangemunt will be pushed through
the Iioueo as speedily ns possible. The
effect of the policy of the cabinet,
which appears to have been wired
right and left all over the continent,
has strength onett the stock consider
ably. In New Vork the market was
flooded with Canadian Pacific shares,
whilst a lending firm of brokers hore
who- telegraphed for 2,000 shares this
morning were notified this afternoon
that every share offering hns beon
bought in at an advance of one per
ceut. This is considered as showing
what mi anvantagBOua arrangement the
company has made with tlie government. The railway lino will be completed through with all its connections
by the end of September, and if satisfactory arrangements can be made
with property owners, the Conl Harbor
extension will be finished by the same
date.
Now, we frankly confess that
this supposed despatch has since
assumed an extremely doubtful
phase. It was given to us by a
very respectable and trustworthy
citizen with the assurance that it
was a copy of a telegram which had
lieen received at Victoria on Tuesday night. As the completion of
the C. P. R., and especially the terminal works, is a matter in which
the people of this province are deeply interested, we considered tho
announcement, the correctness of
which was vouched for, of sufficient
importance to justify tho issuing of
an extra. But we find that the
very same announcement', minus the
concluding sentence, appeared in a
late number of the Montreal Star,
and that since the publication of
it considerable modifications have
been made in the negotiations between the syndicate and the government. Whether this extract from
the Montreal Star was really telegraphed from Ottawa to Victoria
or not we do not know. It appeared
in the Viotoria Standard of Wednesday morning its a telegram from
Ottawa, and the Victoria Times of
Tuesday afternoon contained the
substance of it in an editorial article. But the fact remains that it
was published iu the Montroal Star
about the 28th of hist month, and
was not a very fresh piece of news.
Tlie fact that at least two Victoria
dailies were led into it misapprehension liy this announcement does
not make it any better for us. We
believe that the Ottawa govornment
will be forced by circumstances
cither to assist the C. P. R, syndicate, or to take over the road. West
of Ontario tliere are probably a
vast majority of the peoplo who
would be glad to see tlie road fall
into tht! government's hands. There
is a general impression abroad that
it will become a gigantic monopoly
in the hands of tho syndicate, and
that tho interests of the country
would be best served if it were
made a government road. We confess that we have some misgivings
on tins point. The experience tho
people of tliis province havo already
had with railway rates and steamboat syndicates is not such as to
lead them to look hopefully upon
the prospect of tlio C, P. R. remaining in the syndicate's hands,
The people can generally find some
means of controlling a government,
but a syndicate chartered with such
special privileges as were givon to
the C, P. R. seems almost beyond
the reach of popular indignation.
But although tho people of British
Columbia and the territories lying
east of the mountains might be
glad to soe the railway revert to the
government, a majority of the
people in the eastern provinces are
opposod to such a schomc   They
think' the Dominion lias spent money enough already upon the railway,
and they believe if it camo into tho
government's hands it would become
a source of endless expense to the
country. It is extremely doubtful
if the house of commons would consent to take over the railway. But
wo do not think that the house is
prepared either to see the enterprise fall through now that it has
almost reached tlio point of completion. If the syndicate iinds
itself unable to escape from financial embarrassment by the ordinary
means, we feel sure the government
will come to its aid with such assistance as may be uecessary. Although the details of the arrangement, as stated in the despatch,
may therefore be somewhat inaccurate, we are of opinion that the
syndicate will receive additional
government aid, and that the road
will be completed without delay,
and that the completion will be
accomplished before the end of
September.

It should have nsked, "Whom brother

only cm: of a linu which owns and
published The Columbian, and it is
certainly neither correct nor truo to
say that it is published by a brother of
the provincial secretary. Our young
coteiDpornry is also greatly mistaken
whon it nsiorla that The Column an

London, April 7.—A despatch from
Berlin to the Standard states that Lord
Roseburg, lord of the privy seal nnd first
commissioner of public works, hns arrived at Berlin, charged with a mission
from the British govornment to invite
Prince Bismarck to mediate between
Great Britain and Liussin. Lord Granville has forwarded a dispatch to the
Dritisli amhussudor nt St. Petersburg,
refusing to accede to the request of the
Russian foreign minister to extend the
line of tho debatable zone ou the Rtisso-
Afghan frontier to the Parapamisiis
mountains. Earl Granville insists tlmt

other cities ami other towns to welcome
the i .'ince and Princess of Wales, Iu
speaking of the profuse decorations
whicli adorn the principal streets of this
uity, they suggested that the Dublin
corporation should close the roads along
the proposed royal route.
Paris, April 7.— Honri Brisson, the
new president of the council of minis-
tors, read before the chamber of deputies this afternoon n formal statement of
the policy agreed upon by the new miu
istry in regard to China, The statement
declared that France would demand
from tho Chinese complete respect for
nll French rights resulting from treaties
with France and Annum and China concerning Tonquin, and which China hnd
recognized as valid by the Founder convention of 1884. Franco would be happy
if amicable negotiations sufficed to attain
this respect for French rights, but the
end would he attained by arms if uecessary. Tlio government, however, was
resolved not to modify the characrer cf
tho French expedition in Tonquin without the approval of the chambers. Concerning European affairs, the declaration
stated that the French government would
by an attentive and circumspect policy
soak to guarantee France's position as
one of the very first powers in all questions occupying European attention. M.

London, April 7.—The foreign otlice
has published the correspondence respecting negotiations between Great Britain
nud the United States (or a commercial
treaty to control trade with the British
West Indies. The tirst document in a
letter from Lord Granville, Itiittsli foreign secretary, to Sackville West, British minister at Washington. Tliu lettnr
is dnted Oct. 25, 1884. Lord Granville
states that the British W'tst I ml inn colonies are willing to abolish duties on
broad, biscuits, butter, cheese, corn,
meats of all kinds, Hour, lard, lumber,
kerosene oil, meat and oil csko, un condition thnt the United States reduce
duty on sugar at least one-half. Some
of tlio colonics were also willing to abolish duties ou hams, meat, spokes aud
staves. Minister West wrote to Lord
Granville under date of Nov. 20, 1884,
thnt the United States desired a wider
basis fur the treaty, also that the advantages conceded to the United States
should not bo conceded gratis to any
third parties under the favored nation
clause. On 4tll December Minister West
forwarded to Korti Granville Socretary
Frcliiighuyseu's draft of a counter treaty,
This is au elaborate document iu wliL-li
lol) articles are scheduled ami in which
tho United States agrees to abolish the
duty ou sugars under the grade No. 16,
In a letter accompanying the draft Secretary Frelinghuyseii insisted on the exemption of third parties as indispensable.
On Feb. 12, 1885, Lord Granville wrote
to Minister West that it was impossible
to accept the proposals of the United
Sates. Ho said they would revolutionize the conventional stipulations which
govern the commerce of the nations of
the world under the favored nation
clause. A fruitful caiisj of dispute
would infringe upuu international law.
Lord Granville minutely criticized the
points of the proposed treaty. He expressed his regret that he was compelled
to reject it and he hoped that the agreement might bo effected sooner or later.
Lord Granville forwarded a copy of this
dispatch to the colonial ofllce, accompanied by a note in which he said the
concessions propo£ed by the United
States were more apparent than real
and that the proposals lacked the essential elements of stability.

Dublin, Apr. 8. — The Prince and
Princess of Wales nrrived here at 2 o'clock and were accorded a splendid reception. In answer to an address of
welcome presented hy the citizen's committee, the prince said he was delighted
to renew his acquaintance with Dublin,
Iu the passage through tho streets the'
party everywliere were greeted with enthusiasm. Houses on both Bides of the
avenue were adorned with beautiful
decorations, and windows and roofs
crowded with spectators eager to catch a
glimpse of the future king and queen,
Along the route of the royal procession
on its way to Dublin Castle many persons crowded in past the escort of Lancers, The Prince of Wales took all these
irregularities good naturedly, and reassured the displaced spectators by shaking hands cordially with all of thein
within his roach. Karl Spencer, Irish
Viceroy, was loudly cheered as ho drove
through tho streets of Dublin in the procession. Tho lord mayor, John O'Connor, who is a strong nationalist, but who
drove in official state with tho royal
escort, was loudly hissed by the nationalists. Nothing of wolcomo is visible on
the city hall of Dublin, and the fact stands
out so conspicuously as to force comment.
Fully 1,000 students paraded the streets
amf marched to Dublin castle, singing
loyal songs ami carrying union jacks ou
the ends of walking sticks. The royal
visitors wero loudly cheered wherever
they appeared. The Princess of Wales
captured the populace at sight. The
rctincd beauty of her face nnd tho elegance of her figure were most artistically
set ofl' iu a special costume of green
which had been made for the occasion.
This tiibute to Irish colors, so nicely
and beautifully made, was instantly recognized by the people, and her royal
bigness was everywhere greeted with
applause.

minister of internal revenue, in a speech
at Levis defended the policy of the government in the matter of the North-west
rebellion. Referring to the half-breed
claims, he said they were unjust and

obtained oirRed River they had demanded others on the Saskatchewan.
Bkrmn, Apr. 8,—The belief hitherto
prevailing iu official circles that peace
would be maintained between Kngland
and Russia has undergone a distinct
cliango. Dispatches from St. Petersburg
say the war party is getting the upper
hand, and the Czar has agreed to appoint
General Gourko aud General Kouropot-
kine to leading commands in the Afghan
campaign. In the event of war each will
lend an army corps of 50,000 men. Geu,

Lonuon, Apr, !l.—There is great excitement ou tho stock oxchnngo, amounting almost to n panic, over news of a
light in Afghanistan, which is regarded
as equivalent to a declaration of Wfil'i
Foreigu funds are demoralized, The St.
Petersburg official Messenger publishes
the following this morning; Gen. Komo-
roff reports that iu couseipieiiCB of hostile manifestations by Afghans he was
compelled to attack thom. The Afghans
woro posted upon both banks ot the
river Kuohk, in fortified positions. Tint
fight occurred on the 30th of lust mouth.
The Afghan force, which consisted of
4,000 men, with 8 guns, were defeated
with a loss of 300, all the artillery, two
standard bearers, and the entire camp
outfit ami alt the provisions of the
Afghans were captured. The Itussian
loss was 2 subalterns aud 10 soldicr-i
killed, nud 21) wounded. When the
fighting ended Gen. KuiimrofV returned
across tlx- river to the position he had
formerly occupied. Geu, Kotmiroir also
reports that sonic British officers were
eyo|witnesses, but not participants in tho
engagement, They appealed for protection to the RussiniiB when they saw the
Afghans were beaten, but un fortunately,
he says, tho convoy which he immediate-
dispatched to the relief of these olllcci-s
was unable to overtake the Afghau cavalry who curried the British away with
them in their Ibght.
Domiiun, Apr. 1).—There is great depression hi Imuuciul circles here this
morning, nud it is evident that the lenders of the street now feel that war is certain. Russian securities are about as
weak as they well ean be,
London, Apr. 8. - llaron De Staal,
Russlnn ambassador, believes that the
lighting iu Afghanistan was even mure
serious than has been reported in different press despatches. M. Lossar in an
interview to-day snid the Afghans caused
the light through attacking a number of
Russian pickets and driving them from
their posts. The Russians then retaliated, when a general engagement ensued,
Vienna, Apr; 0.—It is learned from
.St. Petersburg that the Ameer of Afghanistan's plan of campaign in connection with the Knglish army iu case of
war with Russia is about as follows: The
Ameer's troops are divided into four
corps d'urmee, one of which remains in
Cabul, while the other three have taken
up positions against the Russians. The
three corps embrace 27,800 men, 8,800
cavalry and 110 guns. These three corps
d'armee stand at present in Herat, in
Tachtapula, and in Sarlpul, Together
with tho troops in Cabul, the Ameer has
an army of 07,000 men. Russia has mobilized two divisions which have been
sent to Transcapia.ii, As an indication
of the feeling among the Caucausians, it
is asserted that Mussulmans there are
convinced that Turkey stands on the side
of Russia. This notice is the first positive information received here from those
regions. In diplomatic circles here thers
is much disquiet respecting the relations
of Russia to England, and fears are entertained of negotiations taking a serious
turn.
Loxdok, Apr. 9.—Russian securities
continue to fall rapidly. A dispatch to
the Timet item Gulron, dated April 3rd,
states that the Russians, whilo making
n pretext of changing their outposts on
the Afghau frontier, attacked Pendjeh on
March 30th, and drove the Afghans out
of their position. The Afghans stubbornly resisted their assailants. The
weathor was wet at the time, which
rendered the muzzle-loading guns of the
Afghans useless. Two companies held
one pssition against the Russians until
its defenders were killed. The Afghans
retreated to Marachak iu perfect order,
The Russians made uo pursuit. The
Saraliks remain neutral, but plundered
the Afghans' camp. The Russian losses
are said to be great. British officers remained until tlie Afghans effected their
retreat, when they joined the camp of
Sir Peter Lumsden.
Losdon, Apr. 9.--The Teiegrdhh published a fourth edition which was on the
Btreet a little before 2 o'clock this afternoon. This states that the gravity of
the news from the Afghan bonier has not
been iu any degree diminished by advices
received by the government. The telegraph wires to Meshor have been cut for
some days. The Telegraph has a despatch from Allahabad which states tliat
Geu. Kemarofl*, nfter his victory, occupied Penjdeh, which has long been held
by the Afghan garrison. The Telegraph
expresses a fear that the British officers
fell in the rout at Penjdeh,
Washington, Apr.!).—-Capt. Norton,
coMmanding tho Shenandoah, informs
the navy department that he has landed
about 150 men in Panama for the protection of American interests. Secretary
Whitney replied: Your duty is confined
to protecting the railway and steamship
company's property, and the lives und
property of American citizens, and so far
as your force pormits, keep transit open.
In the conflicts between local forces you
must uot participate, nor show favor or
disfavor to eithor.
Washinoton, Apr. 9, — Secretary
Whitney to-day received n despatch from
Commander Mahan, of the Wachusett,
dated La Libertnd, Salvador, whioh
says: "Barrios is certainly dead. Nicar-
guaii troops entered Honduras, routing
the enemy who retreated in disorder towards Guatemala- A telegram from
Znldavar to the authorities hero says
Mexico will mako a formal alliance
with Znldavar. I expect this will end
the trouble without another shot. Probably both armies will march ou Guatemala city.
London, Apr. 9.—St: Petersburg merchants have telegraphed their agents at
Paris not to consign goods for them via
Baltic sea in English vessels. Parliament reassembled to-day after the Enstor
recess, Iu the house of commons Mr.
Gladstone confirmed the intelligence of a
battle between Russians and Afghans.
He said, from information whicli the
government had received of the fight,
the Russians have apparently been guilty
of an unjustifiable attack on the Afghans.
Kngland has demanded from Russia full
explanations in regard to the affair. In
conclusion, he said that the government
hail received uo information corroborative
of the report that the Russians had occupied Pendjeh.
Washinoton, Apr. 9.—M. Peraltn,
Costa Rica minister, to-day received the
following cablegram from the president
of Salvador: Santa Anna, April 9.—We
confirm the complete victory at Chalcher-
spa, and the death of president Barrios
and IiIb son Don Venanco,
New York, Apr. 9.—This correspondence has imssed through: "Aix los Bains,
April S.-To Mrs. Grant, New York:
The Queen, who feels deeply for you in
your anxieties, commands me to enquire
after Gen. Graut. Signed, Dowager,
Marchioness of Ely." The following reply was Bent: "New York, April 9.—To
the Marchioness of Ely, Aix Ies Bains:
Mrs, Graut thanks the Queen for her
sympathy and directs me to say that
Gen, Grant is no better. Signed, Col.
Grant."
Toronto, Apr. 9.—The news of the
battle between the Russians and the Afghans has created great excitement here,
and tho newspaper bulletin boards are
surrounded by groups of people. Old
soldiers are preparing for active service
iu accordance with a notice posted up
last week at the pension office.
San Franoisco, Apr. .9.—The war
news from Europe created a sharp panic
in tho prices this morning.
Lonuon, Apr. 9.—The government believes that Gen, Sir Peter Lumsdeii, British Afghan boundary commissioner, is
at present at Herat, which he will fortify
and hold if necessary against thu Russians. Ordinary defenses of Herat arc
reported to be iu good condition. It is
stated that the promisedprders to have
the Russian advance stopped, which M.
Dcgiers, Russian foreign minister, gave
assurance that he would send, weftiso
managed thut they did not reach the
Ilea 1 quarters of GeiuKomarolf, Russian
commander ut the front, until after bis
attack upon tlio Afghans.
Like aix Sterling Remedies, Northrop k byumu's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cure deserves a fair trial.
I1 wonld be absurd to suppose that this
ur any other medicine of kindred nature
could producu instant sn eons effects. For
the thorough removal of Chronic Dyspepsia, Constipation, Liver Complaint,
and other ailments to which it is adapted, its use should bo continued some
time, even after the chief symptoms nre
relieved. That it then effects complete
cures is a fact established by ample and
respuctable evidence,
YESTERDAY'S DESPATCHES
CftweU io tht Columbian.)
St. Pirns itsnuuu, Apr. 9.- -Tho morning newspapers throughout Russia,
commenting upon tho recent battle between HussiiuiB aud Afghnusoii Kushk
river, are vory bellicose in their utter*
ntices, nud charge Karl Dufferin nud
Sir Peter Lumsden with provoking wnr
by advising the Afghans to advance on
Pub Kuiva, whicli the British officials
knew was pnrt of the Russian territory.
The Afghans, lhey say, also fully understood thnt I'uli Kuiva wai Russian
territory, and would nevor have attempted to advance their pickets to
that point unless strongly urged to do
so by British olllcials. The war party
endorse the assertions of those newspapers, and are very pugnacious over
the Affair.
Lonuon, Apr. 0.—Thore is n hotter

St. Petersburg, Apr. 9,'—The
Journal of St. Petersburg states that
Gen. Komaroff's return within his Iniob
after driving off lhe Afghans indicates
lhat the Russian attack wm caused by
lhe hostile action of tho Afghans. Thus
(he affair assumes a less serious aspect,
aud becomes merely an accidental conflict which might be difficult to avoid,
considering tho extremely strained condition of affairs and the proximity of
the Russian aud Afghan outpostB. The
Journal expresses a hope that the conflict will not interfere with negotiations
now in progress between England uud
Russia,
Mr. C, E. Rigging, Beamsville, writes:
"A customer who tried a bottle of Northrop k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
says it iB the best thing he ever used; to
quote his owu words,''It just seemed to
touch the spot affected.' About a year
ago he had an attack ot bilious fever,
aud was afraid he was in for another,
when I recommended this valuable medi
ciue with such happy results."

roadway on Sea island, or whether the
council must treat with the Indians on
the subject, as they are led to infer from
Mr. McTieruan's lotter that he has no
power to act in the matter; also thnt a
copy of Mr. McTicrnan's letter be forwarded to the Indian commissioner. The
board of works reported having let the
contract for covering corduroy to Jesse

A. May bee, Merchant, Warkworth,
writes: I have sold some hundreds of
bottles of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil,
and it is pronounced by the public "one

and relieving pain, sore throats, kc., and
is worthy of the greatest confidence.
Cutting: Glass With Scissors.
Many persons may nut bo awaro tlint
glass cau be cut under water with the
gren'est cine to almost any shape by
simply using a pair of shears or strong
scissors, Iu order to insure success
two points must be attended to—first
aud most important, the glass must be
kept quite level in the water whilo the
scissors are applied, und Lccondly, to
avoid risk, it is better to begin the cutting by taking off small pieces at the
corners and along the edges, and to
reduce the shape gradually to that re-
quired; for if any attempt is made to
cut the glass to tlie shape as we would
cut a piece of enrdhonrd, it will he
most likely lo brenk just whoro it is
Rot warned. Some kinds of -.dnss cut
much better thnn others; the softer
glass is the best for this purpose. The
Bci-tsors need not depend mi ihe state
of tlie edge presented to the glass,
When the operation goes on well the
L'la«s breaks away from the scissors in
small |'lews in a straight line with the
blades. This method of cutting glass
has often lieen of service when n diamond has nut been at baud for cutting
ovals uud segments, and though the
edges nro not as smooth as might be
desired for some purposes, it will answer in many cases. The two hints
given nbovo, if strictly followed, will
always ensure success.—Pitteburg Dispatch.

Perhaps the most artistic building ou
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and i'iano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of tbe company, which
had been cramped for room iu the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchaso proven
beyond question that the public npprove
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Hero a crowd may he
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made hy leading
city and country musicians.
(tight well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things, It had its origin in Bowmanville
ubout fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted witli the business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary nud treasurer; (Seorge Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W. S. Russell, superintend
ent of the timing department, bought
out the shareholders nnd assumed control. Since tbat date tbu business has
beeu booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies ir*leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings.
t turns ont about 200 organs and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by 250 hands, who receive iu wages
about $15,000 per month. Tho 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; und St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition iu the
pavilion are fair examples of thn Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos' there nre two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on nll sides, presents 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 hnnd rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick nnd easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. Jn musical quality and appearance they are equal to the best
American pianos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, uud at nll
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample "0ans are shown in the pavilion.
The li.. gest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
ond of the week. It is arranged to ho
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in positiou to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. The cases Bhow wonderful variety. Many of these ure of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship,
The case which secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for par
lor organs are chaste iu design aud artistic in execution. Tho musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
This was how she know that ho was
coming back. Ond help her! Sho
looked in Barry's faco, with un
staiitauooiiB realization of tho horror
of it, of the falsehood that wus implied, of her own sudden complicity
in some monstrous wrong. "I know
he ia coming Immo to-night." What
was it that turned Medusa into that
mask of horror and gavo her head its
fatal force? Wna it tho appalling
vision of somo unsuspected abyss of
falsehood aud treachery suddenly opening at her feet, ovor which sho stood
arrested, turned into an imago of
death, blinding and slaying every apec-
tntor who could look and sue? Hestei
did not know anything about classic
story, but she remoinhered vaguely
about a face with snaky locks Lhat
turned men to stono She told Harry
the truth, yot it was a cruel lio. She
herself, though she knew nothing and
was tortured with terror and questionings, seemed to become at onco
an active agent in the dark mystery,
u liar, a traitor, a falso friend. Harry
looked at her with concern and wonder, seeing, no doubt, tlmt alio was
pale, that sho looked ill, porhaps that
she was unhappy, but never divining
that slie was helping iu a fatal deceit
against her will, contrary to hor overy
desire. Ho did not doubt for a moment what Bhe said, or put any meaning to it thnt wns not simply in the
words. Ho never dreamed that Ed-
wnrcVs return was not real, or thnt
it did not nt once entisfy every question nud set things, if nut right, yet
in tho way of being right. He drew a
long breath of relief. That wns all
ho wanted" to know. Edward onco
back again at tho hoad of affairs, everything would resume its usual course.
To hear him say, "Then that's all
right!" and never to say a word, to
feel herself gazing in his eyes—was it
with the intention of blinding those
eyes and preventing them front divining tho truth'/ or was it in more horror
of herself as the instrument of a lie,
■ ,f him—him whom sho would fain
lmvo thought perfect, as falsehood incarnate? There was a moment when
Hester know nothing more, when,
though she was on tire and her
thoughts liko ilamo, lighting up a wild
world of dismay about her, sho yet
folt as if turned into stone.
The note itself, when she received
it in the quiet freshness f the morning, all ordinary and calm, hor mother
scarcely awake as yet, the little household ullaira just beginning—those daily
processes of cleaning and providing
without whieh no existence can be—
had been agitation enough. It had
come to her like a sudden, sharp stroke,
cutting her loose from everything, like
the cutting of ti rope whicli holds a
boat, or the stroke which severs a i
branch. In a moment she was separated um all that soft, established
order, I'i'mi the life tliat had clasped
her nil round ns if it would hold her
fast forever. Her oyes had scarcely
mil .over V.-se hurried lines before she
f«lt n wild sensaticn of freedom, tho
wind in her face, the gurgle of tho
wnter, the souse of flight. She put
nut htr hands to screen liowolf, not lo
be curried off by the breeze, lhe atrong-
blowing gale of revolution. "A thrill
of atrnngu delight, yet of fright nnd
alarm, ran through her veins--tho
Hood of her sensations overwhelmed
her. lis suddenness, its nearness, its
certainly, brought an intoxication of
feeling. All this monotony to bo
over; tt new world of adventure, of
novelty, of love, and during and movement, and all to begin to-night. These
thoughts mounted to her head in
waves; and as the minutes hurried
along and the world grew more and
moro tiwnko, and Mrs. John came
down stairs to breakfast, tho fire in
Hester's veins grew hotter and hotter.
To-night, in the darkness —forever,
ur uo more nt all, and keop her Bocrot
. nud make no sign.
All this time no question of it as of
a matter on wliich shu must make up
her mind, and in which there was
ohoice, had come into hor thoughts.
Site waa not usually passive, hut for
tho moment she received theso words
as simple directions which theru could
be no doubt of her carrying oot, His
passion and certainty took prt3S2Bsion
of her; everything seemed distinct
and necessary—tho meeting in Hie
dusk, the hurried journey, the flight
through the darkness; for great oncite-
nicut stops at much ns it accelerates
the action of the mind. Her thoughts
flew out upun the wind, into tho unknown, but they did not pause to discuss the firat stepa. Had he directed
her to do ull Ihis at once, iu the morning instead of in the dusk, bIio would
hnvo obeyed his instructions instinctively, liko a child, without stopping
to inquire why.
But this mood was changed by tho
simplest of domestic arguments, Mrs.
•John, fresh and smiling iu her black
gown and hor white cap, came down
to breakfast. Not a suspicion of anything out of the ordinary routine wns
in Mrs. John's mind. It was n lovuly
morning; the sunshine pleased herns
it did iho flowers who hold up tlieir
heads to U, and open out and feel
themselves alive. Her chair was ou
the sunny sido of tho tabic, as it always was. Sho liked to sit iu it
and be warmed by it. She began lo
talk of all tin- little household things
ns sho took her tea; of how the strawberries would soon be cheap euoUgll
for jam. Thai was tho one thing that
remained in Hester's mind years aftor.
Tn a moment, while her thoughts were
full of n liual aud suddou flight, that
littlo speech about tho jam and thu
strawberries arrested hor. Sho felt
herself to como back with n sudden
harsh jarring and stumbling to solid
ground. "The strawberries!" sho said,
looking at her mother with wild eyos
of dismay, ns if there had been something tragic iu thom. "In about u
fortnight, my deaf, thoy will be quite
cheap enough," Mrs, John said, with
n contented nod of her hoad. In a
fortnight! a fortnight! u century would
not mean so much. A fortnight heliee
what would Iho mother bo thinking!
Wliere would tho daughter bo?
Then there cams to Hester another
revelation as sudden, ns all-potent as
the   first—Hint  it   was  impossible—
that sho must be mud or dreaming.
What! fly, go away, disappear, what-
evor might bu llm word?    She suddenly laughed out, her mother could
not tell why, dropping n china cup,
over which Mrs. John  mndo  many
lamentations.     It broko a set, it was
old Worcester, worth a great denl of
money.     It had been her grandtnolh-
et'a,    "Oh, my dear, I wish you would
not be so careless!"    But of anything
else that was broken, or of the mystery of that sudden laugh which corresponded with no expression of mirth
on  Hester's  face, Mrs.   John knew
nothing.   Impossible!   Why there waa
not n word to bo said, not a moment's
hesitation,     It  could  not be—how
could it be? Edward, a young man
full of engagements, caught by n hundred bonds of duty, of work, of alloc
tion—why, if nothing elso, of busi"
ness—to whom it was diflicult to bo
absent for a week, who had sometimes
to run up and down to town in twenty
four hours—that ho should be nble to
go away! He must mean something
elso by it, sho aaid lo herself; tho
words must bear a second signification.
And she herself, who had no business
or duty or tie of any sort except one
but that ouo enough to move heaven
nnd earth—her mother—who in a fort'
night would be making tlio. jam if tho
strawberries were cheap enough. The
thought moved her to laughter again,
a laugh out of a strangely solemn, excited co tin ten mice.
But thia sudden revulsion of feeling
hud given tho whole matter a certain
grotesque mixture of the ludicrous, it
demonstrated the impossibility of any
sueh overturn with such a sarcastic
touch. Hester said to herself that
she must have been nearly making
somo tragical mistake, and compromising her character for good-sense
forever. Of courso it was impossible.
Wliatover he moatil by the words ho
did not mean that.
After breakfast, when she was alono
and hud read the note over again, and
could Iind tm interpretation of it but
the first one, and had begun to outer
into tho agonies of a mental struggle,
Hester relieved the conflict by putting
it down on pnpor—writing.to Edward
—to herself, in tho lirst instance,
through liim. She asked him what
ho meant, what other sense thero was
in his words which sho had not grasped?
He go a way I how could ho, with Catherine (rusting in him, with Vernon's
depending upon hiin, with his work
and his reputation, and so much at
stake; and sho with her mother? Did
not he see that it was impossible? Impossible! Hu might say that she
should have pointed this out before,
but sho had never realized it; it had
been words to hor, no more; aud it
was words now—was it not?—words
that meant something beyond her understanding—a test of her understanding; but she had no understanding, it
appeared. Hester thought that she
would send this letter to await him
when ho reached tho Grange, and then
she would keep his appointment and
Iind liim—ready to- laugh at her, as
ihe had laughed at herself. She put
it hurriedly into her desk when Harry
appeared, with n guilty sense that
Hurry, if he saw it, would not only
divine whom it was addressed to, but
even what it said. But Harry was no
warlock, and, though he saw the
hurried movement and the withdrawal
if tho paperflj never asked himself
i. kit it was
But after Hurry wus gone she wrote
no ui'. c Shu gav.B'one glanco at the
pages; full of anxious pleading, of
tender remonstrances, of love and
perplexity, then closed the lid upon
them, as if ;t liad been tiie lid of a
coffin, and Socked it securely. They
were obsolete, and out of date, as if
her grandmother had written them.
They had nothing to do with the real
question; they were ns fictitious as if
they hud befii taken out of a novel.
All that she had said was foolishness,
like the driveling of an idi'.t. Duty!
she liad asked triumphantly, how
could he disengage himself from thai!
how could she leave her mother behind? when, great Heaven! ali that ho
wanted was to shake duty oil' and get
nd of every tie. Hurry's revelation
brought sueh a contrast before her
Unit Hester could bnt stare at tho
two pictures with dumb consternation.
On onu side, the bunk in gloomy disarray, itr ordinary course of action
stopped, the business "all wrong,"
poor people besieging its doors for
their money, tlie clerks bewildered,
and not knowing what to do, and poor
Hurry faithful, but incapable, knowing
no better than they. On the other,
Edward, iu nil a bridegroom's excitement, with the woman he loved beside
him, traveling, far away into the night,
flushed with pleasure, with novelty,
with the success uf his actions, whatever they wero, aud with the world
before him.
It seemed to Hester that she saw
the two scenes, although she herself
would have to bu an actor in one of
thein if it ever came to pass. She
saw thom to ths most insignificant
details. The bank (Vornon's—that
sheet-anchor of the race, for which
slie herself felt a hot partisanship, a
desire to build it up with thu prop uf
her own life, if that would do it), full
of angry and miserable peoplo cursing
its very name—whilo the fugitives,
with every comfort about them, wore
fast getting out of Bight and hearing
of everything that could recall what
they hud left. Deserter! traitor!
Wero those tho words that would bo
used? and wus ho going to tly from tho
ruin ho hail made? That last most
terrible question of all began to force
itself to her lips, aud ull the air seemed
to grow alive and be tilled with darting tongues and voices, and hissings of
reply. And then it wns that Hester
felt as if her very hair began to writhe
and twist in living horror about her
shoulders, and that her oyes, wido
with fright aud terror, wero becoming
like Medusa's, things that might turn
all that was living to stone.
But to think through a long summer
day is a terrible ordeal, and many
changes and turns of tho mind are
inevitable. It was n pitiless long day
—imagine it!—iu June, when not n
moment is spared you. It was very
bright-all nature enjoying tho light.
Tho sun seemed to statu! still in tho
sky, as on that duy when he stopped
to watch tho slaughter in Ajtilon; and;
even when he disappeared tit last, tho
twilight lasted and lingered as if it
would never bo done.
Hester had put away her long letter
of appeal, but she wrote a brief, almost
stern note, which she sent to the
Grange in the early evoning. It rati
thus:
"Harry has told us that all is going
wrong nt the bank, and you nro wanted
urgently there—thnt only you can sot
things right. You cannot have known
this when you wrote to nio. I take it
for granted this changes everything,
bnt I will come to-night to the placo
ymt name,"
She sent hor note in the afternoon,
and then waited, like n condemned
criminal, faintly hoping still for a reprieve; for porhaps to know this would
stop him - still; perhaps ho had not
known it. She went out just after
sunset, escaping, not without difficulty,
from her mothor's caro.
"It is too lato for you to go out by
yourself," Mrs. John said. "I do not
like it. You girls aro so independent.
1 never wont boyond the garden by
myself at your ago."
"I am only going to the Common,"
Hester said, with a quiver in her
voice. She kissed hor mother vory
tenderly. She was not In the habit of
bestowing caresses, so that this a littlo
startlod Mrs. John; but sho returned
it warmly, and bndo her child take a
shawl,
