Exploration.
It is now more timn a decade since
S.ward bought Alaska—a Veritable
"pig in a poke"-—for eight million
dollari, anil, yet Jonathan lias really
n.v.r taken, the trouble to examine
thin northern "pig" in' order to see
what sort of'a bargain the veteran
statesman   made.    That it is tiig
enough, to be worth all it cost, can
be learned from the map.    Its area
exceeds those of Oregon and Washington. Territory and California' rind
Nevada and Idaho combined.   But
beyond that there is really very little
, known aboiil lit ' We are glad to
find that Congress is now asked to
''make an appropriation for a thorough
exploration 'of that vast term hi;
.cognita. Why gliid > Because we he-
Mieve that Alaska possesses import-
'  ant resources and is destined to attract a largo population uud give rise
'|f to a vast trade. What is that to us ?
j .Sandwiched, as British Columbia is,
V between Alaska and the rest of the
i United States, development ou either
.side must help us.    More especially
' .will devs opmeht' iu Alaska help us.
'i pur geographical position, and  os-
i'.peciallyoO,r coal stores, and by.and
,by our great railway, will enable us
'■ to participate largely in that develop-
'ment,   The1 idea prevails with some
> people that whenever the trade of
j Alaska attains large proportions it
,' will seek a more direct course on the
open sea, giving British  Columbia
I the go-by altogether. Three primary
,; factors must ulono urevent such a
: iresult.   (1) Con! is the great power
: to which commerce on the northern
I Pacific must bow. Tlmt power is ours.
(2) San' Francisco shall not ever be
supremo.  The great seat (or at least
' .» great seat) of American commerce
; will be on the shores of Fuget Sound,
','iinl it is there, not at Run Francisco, where the ocean trade with Alas
;a shall find its southern terminus.
3) The Canadian Pacific Railway,
''ivitli its nearer terminus, its shorter
'outft and its Pacific lines of steam-
rs, must always command its share
j f whiitever trade lies to tho north
•est of us,   That theso three forces
."jmliiiied are destined to secure to
' iritisli   Columbia material benefit
•oin the development of Alaska is n
reposition too obvious to require
$ :'gument.   But while wo have rea-
.in to view with complacency every
.lovement calculated to foster trade
>'id development in the vast terri-
l!ry beyond, it would ill become us
II rest content with exacting tribute
lorn  the foreign trade passing by
| ir door.   There lies a term incog-
I :ta of onr own between this mid
I laska,   Had it not been for the
j madian Pacific  llnilway explore-
,'ins, how much would have been
town to-day about it 1 And even
; ■ th all theso explorations, how lit
i'i is known.   It would bo a proper
! .ing for the Dominion Government
, seek to have a complete revision
the boundary line between British
■liimhia and Alaska,   The narrow
rip of Alaska territory extending
' wn tho seaboard for a distance of
|0 milts - ii an absurdity which
: ight not to exist, and Which tiro
vilized aud friendly governments
ght not to txpetieiice any dilli
Ity in removing.   The boundary
adjusted and properly dulined,

A French manufacturer claims the
discovery of making un of leaves of
the eucalyptus tree' as ft iubstitute for
tobacco leaves in cigars. The eucalyptus leaves emit a delicious odor in
burning. <
In a late paper. Dr. Junes Geikie
shoirs the. great lize of the Gulf
Stream and its vast influence upon
northern climates, and concludes that
tha opening of the proposed canal
across the isthmus of Panama will
have as much effect upon the Qulf
'Stream aiid tho, climate of Northwestern Europo as ihe emptying of a
tcapotful of boiling water into the
Arctic Ocean would have in raising the
annual temparature in Greenland.
A European observer, rf. Tie Mere-"
jousl-y, has lately studied certain of
the lower crustaceans with a view of
deciding whether or not those creatures are able to distinguish colors.
As a result of his experiments, ha hue
concluded that, while the crustaceans
are fully alive tu the difference between light and darkness, it is solely
the quantity of the light and not the
quality which aiTects them, for they
cluster in nearly equal numbers around
two rays of equal intensity, whatever
may he the colors. There appears to
be, then, a wide difference between
tho lower crustaceans and man in the
perception uf light. While we see
different colors and their different intensifies, the crustaceans soe only one
eolor with viirialious of intensity. We
perceive colors as colors; they only distinguish thtm us light.
Tlie rainfall of Cherrapunji, a small
Indian station in southwestern Assam,
is bulievad to exceed in quantity that
of any other known place. Cherra-
pu'iji occupies the summit of one uf
thu Kh.isia Hills, at an elevation of
4,100 feet. These hills rise abruptly
from low plains, and lie directly in the
courso of (he sniithwcst monsoon from
the Bengal onatrt-- .Surcharged with
moisture, thu air currents sweep across
tlie lowlands and are deflected upward
by the hills, thu expansion of the currents on rising causing a fall of temperature and condensation of the
moisture. The effect is surprising,
for, while thu low plains have an avur-
ago yearly fall of only about 100 inches
of rain, the annual rainfall of Cherrapunji is 4ilU inches, nr more than 41
feet. As a comparison, it may be
stated that, the annual rainfall of the
United States is from 12 to 50 inches,
being greatest near the sea-board.
According to the recent calculations
of Mr. G. II. Darwin, the earth and
tbo moon must have formed only one
body somo fifty-four million years or
more ngo, and at a time when this
hotly was rotating at the rate of about
one revolution in live hours the mass
now forming the moon became separated from it. Thus was the moon born;
and Prof Ball, in his exposition of
Darwin's views, concludes that in time
the wound on tho earth became entirely healed, leaving no scar to testify
to tho mighty catastrophe Tu this
final conclusion Mr. 0. Fisher now
offers an amendment. He believes
that the scars yet exist, and that those
scars are thu ocean basins. When the
moon's mass was thrown from tho
earth, the liquid interior must havo
risen to till the hole, and portions of
the granite crust must have been horno
toward the cavity. Thu hole only partially filled up, and the crust became
broken into thu fragments which now
form thu continents.
"Is thu human skull growing thinner r is a cjuestion raised by Mr.
W. B. Cooper, who uudeavors to prove
by generally accoptod laws uf evolution that such must be the case. These
laws teach that the stronger organisms
must survive thu weak iu thu struggle
for lifo, and that all living creatures
possess the natural tendency of becoming accommodated to altered circumstances within certain limits. Mr.
Cooper argues that when barbaric war-
faro and fhe dangers uf the chase were
common occurences the law of natural
selection must have operated to eliminate individuals with skulls too wuak
to withstand the severe shucks to
which they were exposed. Adaptation,
also, must lmvo exerted au influence
in causing thu bony armor of the brain
to become thiukeiied to serve as a protection for that delicate organ With
civilized man a change is found, Natural selection no longer has special
occasion to remove persons of weak
crania, as the skull is seldom exposed
to violence. For the same rea out the
law of adaptation, which like all evolutionary laws may be either progressive or retrogressive, tends rather to
decrease the skull's thickness than to
increase it—the brain no longer having need of a strong protective covering, i Men's skulls are now less exposed to violence than at any former
period in the world's history, but in
view nf the fact that the most advanced races.of to-day were barbarians
a few centuries ago it is obviously oo
early to look for any great change. He
maintains, however, that in accordance with theory the brain must lie
fast losing its shield, and points out
that it is no unusual event uow-a-days
to hear of fractures ascribed to unusual thinness of the skull.

Tliat Speech.
"The speech of the Lieutenant-
Governor in the House yesterday
was an unreserved and practical endorsement of the policy pursued by
the Government." So says the Victoria Standard of last Friday—and
so wo all say. The Speech from the
Throne was undoubtedly unreserved
in its endorsement of tho Government policy. It begins at once with
the DeCosmos mission, which it unreservedly pronounces a success. It
touches upon some other parts of tha
Uovernmint policy past, present and
prospective, and glorifies the men
whose genius contrived and executed
these wonderful feats of statecraft in
the interest of the country. Nothing
could be more beautiful than that
speech in its thorough admiration of
the Government and its complete
satisfaction with their past achievements and future purposes. But did
it ever occur to the young man of
the Standard to enquire who wrote
that speech 1 Not the Lieutenant-
Governor certainly. The constitutional usages of Canadian legislatures
are so well understood that we need
not enter upon any discussion to
prove that the Speech from the
Throne is never composed or written
by tho Governor, but by the Government for the time being. If Lieut.
Governor Cornwall had been desirous
of complimenting the Cabinet, he
could not do so constitutionally without the Cabinet's permission, If ho
had felt it his duty to censure them,
the only constitutional shape in
which the censure could be conveyed
would be in the form of a dismissal
from office. No Governor would
undertake to exercise his prerogative
of dismissal except where he had
evidence that tho ministers ware acting directly contrary to the wishes
of the people, or were guilty of gross
and undoubted corruption. For both
theso causes Lieutenant-Governor
Letelliet* dismissed the Government
of the province of Quebec, and for
doing so he was himself dismissed
by the Government of Sir John
Maodonaid; It follows, then, that
the speech delivered by the Lieut. -
Governor at the opening of the Legislature of this province last Thursday was not written liy himself, but
by the Government of Mr, Walltem.
In view of this fact, whicli is certainly known to every person who
knows anything at all about constitutional usages, it is quite natural
to expect an endorsement of the
Government policy. It is the Government whitewashing itself by tho
hands, it may be the unwilling
hands, of the Governor. The premier prepares tho whitewash, provides tho brush, and calls upon the
Governor to put it on. The Governor cannot constitutionally refuse, and
tho young man of the Standard holds
up his hands in profound admiration
and then goes on and tells his readers that the policy of tho Government
lias received "an unqualilied nnd
practical endorsement!" The young
man was either terribly ignorant or
fearfully wicked. That he was ignorant enough to suppose that the Governor himself wrote tho speech, we
do not believe, and lie must therefore have set himself deliberately to
the task of deceiving his readers.
But he must not suppose the people
of this province are so ignorant of
the constitution as he is of honesty,
The plea will not take. We have
beard of drowning mon catching at
■traws, but this young man caught
where not even a straw existed ; and
lie has proclaimed himself to be the
most ignorant man in British Columbia, or one of the most dishonest,
He may take which alternative he
chooses.  ,
Following also made free:—Bees,
Celluoid in sheets, Chlorium in iron,
sand or globules, and Dry Putty for

Bltickhenrt, Ebony, Lignum Vita), Red
Cedar, and Sat in wood.
Duties changed; as follows:—Bookbinders' tools aud implements reduced
to 10 percent.; Window Glass raised
to 30 por cent.; Iron (old and scrap),
raised to 81.00; Lead Pipe, Shot, and
manufactured Lead, raised to ilO per
cent.; Sand Glass and Emery Paper,
raised to 25 percent.} Machinery in
ships registered, raised to 25 per cunt.;
Hulls and other parts, unchanged;
Spirit preparations, such as elixirs,
tinctures, extracts, and wine preparations, 20 per cent, in addition to present duty of $1.00 per gal.; Posters
and advertising Pictures, or pictorial
Show Cards or Hills, 6 cents per lb.
and 20 per cent.; Bags containing fine
salt, 25 per cent.; Clock Springs, 10
per cent,; Cotton Seed, 10 cents per
bushel; Fireworks, 25 per cent; Mustard Cake, 20 per cent,; l'arafino Wax,
It cents per lb.; Rice (ulihulled), 17-g
por cent,.; Trees—npple, '2\; pear, 4;
plum, 5; cherry, 4; and quince, -1 cents
each; Silk Plush for manufacture uf
gloves, 15 par cent,
It will be observed that, as regards
the articles of tea and colfee {green)
they are now absolutely free, except
when coming from the United States,
when the dinferential charge of ten
per cent, will still bo in force. The
duty ou lea exclusive of tho differential charge, amounted to about 30
por cent., and upon coffee about 20
per cent., so that the abolition of
duty upon these articles will ba a
measure of no inconsiderable relief
to the country. Unfortunately for
British Columbia, she is not yet in a
position to participate to the full in
the meat-mo nf relief, inasmuch as
she must still buy tea and coffee in
the American markets, so that the
ten per cent, will still have to be
paid. There is, however, a great
difference between ten per cent, and
thirty or forty per cent. Of the
other changes, the removal of duty
from tin and other articles consumed
in the business of fish canning will
bu most grateful. For some time a
drawback of duty on tin lias been
allowed in respect of fish exported,
but that did not, of course, apply to
lish sent to the eastern provinces,
where quite an extensive market exists. Altogether the changes are in
the right direction and will have a
tendency to build up a national trade
ml foster domestic industrv.
Editorial Notes.
Early last week Messrs. Innes
Brothers, of Langley, drove down 50
hogs, 25 cattle and a large quantity of
farm produce for shipment to Nanaimo, but owing to difficulty in crossing
the river and the absence of regular
communication with that port they did
not got away with their valuable cargo
till last Monday evening—a whole
week's detention here! This is only
one instance illustrative of the importance of moro regular and ellicient communication between Nanaimo and this
port. The former (including of course
Wellington) has become a very important centre of consumption, and
it is to the advantage, not only of thu
immediate producers but of the
whole province, that the market shall
be supplied from our own fertile acres,
instead of from foreign sources. Mr.
Spratt, with his proverbial enterprise,
placed tho Maude on the route in,the
«arly part of hist season, but the trade
not warranting the expense, she waa
withdrawn. Since then Capt. Rogers
has buen running tho Ada with a degree of perseverance whieh does him
credit and entitles him to tho gratitude uf both communities. But a
steamer cannot be run long or regularly on gratitude, and it seems extremely doubtful whether the volume
of trade has attained such dimensions
as will warrant Capt. linger.* in attempting to maintain regular communion-
tiuii. Under these circumstances it
would appear to bu the duty aud the
true interest uf the Dominion Government to grant a small subsidy for a
mail service over the rutitu in question.
If private enttrpriso were thus supplemented and a regular and efficient
service maintained, it would bu found
that an important trade would very
soon bo created, the rosull of which
would be to ensure an ample supply of
domestic food products and retain in
the country the large amounts now
flowing into foreign channels. We
hope the member for this District and
the member for Nanaimo will bring
the subject before the authorities at
Ottawa in such a manner as to secure
immediate attention.

Worse abd Worse.—Su the cement
business is much worse than even these
dreadful "opposition" pupers made it
out to be.   The Chief Commissioner
of Works told tho Legislature it would
require 100 tuns.     Now he finds it
will require 4,400 tons!   What next f

Statehood. — Almost every Territory in the United States is now clamoring for admission as a state. Out
of the whole number, Now Mexico,
Utah, Washington, and Dakota atone
have attained tho population status
required. There is every {'Capon to
believe that three of them will he admitted. Utah is debarred by filar-
monism.
TiiEOi'KsisoSpBitiJii.— The CWonwt,
in a trenchant article, characterizes
the speech as "bosh," and says the
voice and manner in which it was delivered showed that tho Lieutenant-
Governor keenly felt the humiliation
of having tn read it. Our contemporary's language is perhaps a little
too strong, and yet, knowing the fac's,
as he does, tho Lieutenant-Governor
cannot but have felt humiliated.
From Yale.—Mr. James Beer, of
Yale, and Mr. Heckman, who received
such serious injuries at Spence's

The Judicial Emmioolio. — The
Canada Law Journal for January contains the first part of what appears to
be a very able article ou the position
of our judicial affairs. The article
sketches the history of our Courts with
a degree of accuracy not usual for
writers in the east when dealing with
British Columbia questions The
writer in the Law Journal evidently
regards the attitude of the Provincial
Government as altogether untenable.

Tiie Great India-rubber Man!
On Wednesday our local contemporary proclaimed himself "on the
fence" in the present election contest.
He said:—"So far'as'th'e'Guardian is
concerned, we havo taken no side; all
we desire is fair play. We have said,
in fact, more in favor of Mr. Homer
than Mr. McLennan." In the vory
next issue, however, ho came down
from his "roost" and most gushingly
espoused tho side of Mi*. McLennan,
ottering the following droll explanation
for such a sudden departure from the
policy of neutrality:—"We have been
met by insinuations and jiuieudoes on
the street, and, taking everything into
consideration, we find that our safest
position is under thu banner of fine or
other of the candidates." But in taking sides, why not soek "safety under
the banner'' of that candidate in whose
favor he had said most'/ There is no
accounting for the eccentricities of the
india-Wibbber man. Ho is about us
erratic in his movements nn tlie "little
joker" under the showman's hat.

house nt 3 p. m. yesterday, and at

"The memorial of thb Corporation
of the City of Now Westininster humbly shew«th:-~
That the want of an ellicient ferry
mi the Frasor river opposite this city
is seriously felt, not only involving
great inconvenience and .loss of time
but 'also a * very heavy- expense in
reaching thin the natural market'for
Ihe settlements on the south side of
the river;
That the establishment of an efficient steam ferry, capable of crossing
teams with their loads of produce
upon a liberal schedule of chargiM
would fend to foster traffic and materially promote the prosperity of tho
City and District;
That, the near prospect of railway
construction on the north Bide of the
river renders it still more important
that greater facilities should exist for
inter-comnuinication;
That there is good reason for believing that such a ferry could be
established without involving any
charge upon the public revenue.
Your memorialists therefore humbly
Pra.V.
That early steps may bo taken for
establishing an efficient ferry at the
City of New Westminster.
And your memorialists, us in duty
bound, will 6V&11 pray."

As our readers are already aware,
Parliament opened on tho 0th Feb.
The Governor-GeneralreadtbeSpecch,
tirst in English and then in French,
in u clear and distinct tone. It congratulates the country upon a year of
great prosperity in every department
of trade and industry, deplores the
assassination of the late Chief Magistrate of the United States, expatiates
upon the resources, progress, and possibilities of tho Nortii West, and intimates that the timo has coma when
these magiiiticout territories should be
divided into lour or more provisional
districts, for which a measure will be
introduced. It refers to tho feeling
of confidence and loyalty among the
Indians of tho North West, but regrets the necessity for increased food
supplies, ami considers that tho largo
prospective influx of whiles and possibility of collision of races call for
augmentation of the mounted police
force. Skipping some minor matters,
iu reference to the Canadian Pacific
Railway, it says: "The work of construction on tliat portion of the Canadian Pacific Uailway between Prince
Arthur's Landing and Winnipeg is
being pressed to completion, nnd it is
confidently oxpected that iu July next
railway communication will be established between these place;*. The section between Lint Portage and Winnipeg, one hundred and thirty-five miles
in length, has boon completed, and
transferred, under the toruiB of tho
contract, to the Canada Pacific Railway Company, by whom it is now
operated. Considerable progress 1ms
been made on the Eastern Section,
commencing at Callander Station, am!
the vigorous prosecution of the work
on that portion of the line during the
present year providod for. In British
Columbia, the work upon the section
between Savoua Ferry and Emory Bar
is being carried ou with every prospect of its completion within thu time
specified in tho contract, aud the lino
from Iho la! lor place to Port Moody,
whicli has been carefully located during tho past season, is now being
placed under contract with a view to
its completion nt the same dato as tbo
section from Savona Ferry to Emory
Km*.   Upon the sections to be con
structed by the Railway Company, tho
work has been most energetically carried forward. During tho past Bummer tho road has been graded for the
distance of two hundred and eighteen1
miles, aud of this one hundred and
sixty-one miles are completed and
open for traffic. Tho company have
iu addition graded eighty-nine miles
of branch lines." Referring to foreign trade, it says: "You will be
pleased to know that a monthly line of
steamers, wliich has been subsidized
under the authority of Parliament, is
now plyiii'g beEwflen the Dominion and
Brazil, with good hopes of a mutually
profitable trade,"
In the Commons seven newly elected
members were introduced, amongst
tlicui James Held, tistp, member for
Cariboo, who was introduced by Sir
John MacdoniUd and Sir Charles
T upper.
Grhman Shrewdness.—the. Yankee
book-agent will have to tuko a rear
seat. Tu a small German town au innkeeper to get rid of a book-peddler's
import unities, bought an almanac from
him, and putting it in his pocket left
the inn, his wife just then coming in
to take his place. Tho woman was
then persuaded to buy an almanac, not
knowing that her husband had one already. The husband shortly returned,
and discovering the trick, sent his por-
ter to tho railway station after the peddler, with a message that ho wanted to
see hiin On business. "Oh, yes," said
the peildler, "1 know; he wants one of
iny almanacs, but I can't miss my train
for that. You can give me a quarter
nnd take the almanac to him/ Tho

Gentlemen—
I have much pleasure in acceding lo

requisition, that 1 would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensuing election of a Rcpresenta-
ti\c to fill the seat now vacant in the
I louse of Commons. If 1 should be
elected lo fill this honorable position,
1 will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that my future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when 1 bad the honor of representing von tn the Legislative Council
of nis Colony. If elected, I will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
I will urge upon the Government
the necessitv of placing the Dominion
Lands, now held in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show the Government the benefit which would be derived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As British Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, I will urge upon the
Government the justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon all
material required for the Fisberies,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries.
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, it will receive
my earnest support.
'Owing to the transitory state of the
Dominion, many hew questions will
undoubtedly ttHsc: in dealing with
these, I will see that the interests of
my constituents are protected.
1 am, Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
JasS T. A. R. HOMER.

KITH AND KIN.
(From 'Temple Bar.)
"Holloa," Aglhmby! whither away?"
"Me? I'm off to the Palace of Ceres,
to testify my allegiance to the Liberal
cause.'
"Oh, the Liberal Demonstration!
I wish you joy, I'm sure !"
"Thank yon.   I don't say that I
shall agree with all I hear, but I want
to know what they have to say fer
themselves."
"Contradictions, as usual."
"Aren't you going too ?"
"Why on earth should I go I We had
our turn last week, my boy. Ynu seem
to forget that thero bus been n Conservative Demonstration already, and that
wo had a great triumph at the Palace
of Ceres  lust  Saturday.    Ours  is au
aeconipliflhnd fact, while yours h:is yet
to come off." ,
"A great triumph, had you f returned Aglionby, a glean) pf humor, of
a kind the reverse of angelic, lighting
up his dark, lean visage. "I know
there was a great row, because I was
there, and helped to make it; if you
like to call it a triumph, I've no objection, I'm sure."
"I'll go bail you nover woro at so
enthusiastic a meeting in your lifs,"
was the vehement retort.
"Never at such a noisy one, I admit.
I hope your chief speaker felt soothed
and cheered altogether with his Irk-
ford   reception.   That scene on the
platform "
"A fine scone!" said the other, reddening angrily all over his fair and ingenuous countenance. "A fine display
of English feeling*to hoot down a respectable, honest man, just because his
opinions happen to differ from yours!"
"Now, my dear follow, don't let
your feelings carry you away. I was
there as well as you, and I'm proud to
own that, I groaned as loudly as anybody, not just because my opinions
differ from his—Heaven forbid! That
was a meeting, Percy! I congratulate
you."
"It was what we wanted—a demonstration," replied his friend, chafing.
"Very much so,'* said Aglionby politely.    "The question is—a demonstration of what?'
"Our party have clearly defined
principles, which they know. They
don't want them expounded over and
over again, like yours. I hope you
may get at something this afternoon—
something definite, I mean. At any
rate, you will have a good chance of
hearing. You seo, we had ninety
thousand of an audience. To-day,
there will be you, the speakers, and
the reporters."
"Thanks for that sparkling gem of
banter. "Won't you join the dance ?"
Will you really not come and save tins
meeting from irretrievable disgrace ?
If we could proudly embellish our report in Monday's paper with the distinguished name of Percy Golding,
Esq., we should feel that our exertions
had not been made iu vain."
"I can tell you, you won't gat the
chance of doing any such thing," said
Mr. Golding, in a huff. Then, rapidly
changing the subject, he added in
milder tones:
"Where's Miss Vane? Isn't she
going with you ?''
"Miss Vane is at home. She cares
nothing about such things, I'm happy
to say. Womon have no business at
political meetings — especially young
women."
"Lots of ladies are going. Half the
reserved seats are taken up with them,"
said Percy; but his expression showed
that he was at one with his friend on
tho last point, if not as to political
principles in general.
"Oh, then there will be one or two
others in addition to myself and the
reportors, after all. I haven't got a
reserved seat. They are too expensive. I'm going with the cuds in the
shilling places, and, in case any o:m
else should happen to do the samo
thing, I will go un and secure a place,
Farewell! Can't I persuade yon,
really ? I would stand between you
and suffocation from overcrowding."
"My opinions on political matters
arc formed, thank you," said Mr.
Golding stilHy.
"Happy man! Mine aro only in
the process of development. Once
more, farewell!"
Percy Golding returned his nod,
and tha two young men separated.
Bernard Aglionby, warehouseman in
an Irk ford firm, Radical, and freethinker, took his way toward the city;
Percy Golding, his friend, banker's
clerk, Conservative and Churchman,
took his way out of it, bumming a
tune tho while; aud hastening his steps
more than he had done when he hud
met'Aglionby. They were fast friends,
and bad been so for many years.
They squabbled incessantly, but quarreled never.
As Aglionby's lung logs carried
him quickly down the broad and busy
thoroughfare, whieh gradually, as the j
town grow thicker, became less broad :
and mere busy, there was at first a
strongly perceptible smile visible upon
his dark, keen face—and that smile a
sarcastic one. He bad a remarkable
face, with sharp, handsome, clear-cut
features, a firm mouth, a fine brow,
and dark eyes, which wero often Been
brilliant, but rarely soft, and which
woro illumned oftener than not with a
glowing spark of malice and mockery.
They darted from one object to another
with a keenness and quickness which
were remarkable. Nothing seemed to
escape their scrutiny; yet there was
rarely any penaivoness to be soon in
their expression. Eyes and mouth,
too, wero given to smiling frequently,
and a hoarty laugh was by no means
a rare event in this young man's life.
Yet bis laugh was not contagious, and
was oftenest heard when others were
perfectly grave, giving his company an
uncomfortable sensation that he laughed nt, father than with them.
"I wonder if we shall muster a hundred and fifty thousand this afternoon?"
he speculated within himself, ns he
strode onward, aud kept passing pieces
nf boarding covered with monstrous
broad - sheets, conspicuous amongst
which was a huge poster in red letters
on a white ground—"Palace of Cores,
Knottley, near Irkford. This day.
Grand Liberal demonstration. Speeches
■will be made by Messrs. and——.
Lord  John  Ponsonby in the chair.
Proceedings to  commence  at eight
o'clock precisely."
"The Tories had ninety thousand
after all deductions wero made," ho
reflected, "and that's a big crowd. I
should like us to beat it"
He whistled softly to himself as he
strode on in the brisk, pleasant air of
the October oftornoou; brisk aud
pleasant oven in the smoky streets of
thu huge, dingy manufacturing town.
"I hope it will be over in tittSe for
me to take Lizzio to the thoatro," ho
again reflected. "As she has got hor
new toggery, she will want to show it,
sense or no sense. Girls are bo odd,"
Ho was in the thick now of tho
great, dirty town, and turned off down
a street inscribed "City Roud;" very
long, very straight, dingy, and uuin
vitmg in appearance. Here tho walls
woro enlivened with a constant succession of the red and white posters
announcing in terms impossible to be
misconstrued, more and more particulars us to the approaching "Grand
Liberal Demonstration fit the Palace of
Ceres," to be held thero that afternoon. By aud by the road became
moro and inure crowded. Cabs, carriages, and foot piissengcra were ull
increasing in numbers, and all steadily
thronging in one direction. From the
steps of a railway station poured a
continuous stream* of persons — men
and women both—all turning toward
ono point, where in the dim distance
could be seen looming through the
smoke a huge, dome-shaped roof, that
of the great hall belonging to tho
euphoniously named ' 'Palace of
Ceres."
Aglionby recognized an acquaintance
here and there, nodded briefly, and
stalked onward, his great height and
his long strides giving him an advantage over most of the others.
Inside the wall, the very largo
grounds belonging to tho palace were
thronged to overflowing with an enormous surging crowd. There was a
lane, preserved by tho exertions of
sorely tried policemen, just wide
enough to admit of two lines of carriages, one going to, the other coming
away from the door of the hall.
Aglionby appeared to know his way
well. He wasted no time in struggling
through this densely planted forest of
humanity, but skirting it, came to a
sido door, presented his shilling to the
guardian who stood there, was admitted, and found himself at once within
a vast hull, capable of holding twenty-
five thousand persons, Thero was a
great platform at the upper end, about
which were distributed a few gentlemen, eagerly conversing; n large space
iu the centre of the hull was devoted
to the reserved seats, about half of
which wore already occupied, and that
very largely by ladies, :is Mr. Golding
had predicted. The space all around
these seats was already tilled almost to
overflowing; but Aglionby, again skirting tho crowd, made his way to a most
convenient corner, umuirubly adapted
both for seeing and hearing, and in
close proximity to one of the reserved
benches, Iu this place u youth waa
standing, whose faco lighted up as he
saw Aglionby approach.
"Here I am !" observed the latter.
"Did you think I was never coming ("
"I knew you wouldn't miss this,"
said the boy, slipping out. of his place;
"und I was only just in time to keep
the place for you. I've been hero just
au hour."
Aglionby hud told Golding that ho
was "going with the cads iu the shilling places," and he had certainly paid
that sum for his [dace, or rather for
permission to enter ut the door and
try to secure standing room. But at
the present moment he drew forth a
shabby-looking little leather purse
(indeed, his whole costume betokened
anything but a superfluity of means) \
and drew forth from it a half-crown,
saying: "Thank you, you've earned
your money well, Bob," uud tendered
it to the youth, who looked like a respectable shop-hoy. Ho Hushed a little,
looked ratlfer sheepish, and stammered:
"I don't liko to take it, Mr. Aglionby, really.   It's but a little tiling to do
fur you, and "
"Pooh I pocket it, und see that no
professional gentleman relieves you of
it on your way home. A bargain's a
a bargain, and clear out, my lud, for
your room is more desirable than your
company at the present moment.'!
The youth murmured something;
looked with more than gratitude up
into the dark, sharp' face of Aglionby,
who appeared at that moment to be
abstractedly gazing toward the platform, and then, wriggling off, mado his
way through tho crowd, and was soon
trudging gayly down City Road, turning tho coin over in his pocket, perhaps to institute an intimacy, as rare
as it was agreeable, between it and two
pennies, a piece of string, and a buck-
handled knife.
Aglionby propped himself up against
a pillar, and surveyed the proceedings.
There was a band wliich played popular melodies, to the airs of which a
portion of the audience sang political
songs. Ho joined in now uud then,
iu snatches, in a voice which was pleasant, aud which had in it more buss
than barytone, but lie was too intently
observing the faces around him to take
much interest iu thu singing.
Two seats at the end of tlie reserved
bench by whieh Aglionby was standing, and from which nothing but a
stout cord separated him, remained
empty for some little time. Then
came an elderly gentleman, accompanied by a young lady, and took their
places there—the elderly gentleman
next to Aglionby. Ho was tho very
image of a country gentleman, thought
the pale-faced denizen of streets and
offices, and suburban lodgings, His
fresh, hale complexion, bright, frosty
blue eye, and white hair; his upright
attitude:; Ids whole appearance bespuko
tho countryman. And Aglionby had
noticed, as he made his way to his
place, that he was a lingo man, tall and
broad, and stalwart, with such a physique us is rarely bred in town. So
tail and so big was he, ns to make the
lady beside him look almost small,
although sho too was of a stature that
was "more than common tall," and of
a statoly carriage to boot.
