NEW WESTMINSTER, «. C,; SATURDAY, MAY 27, 1882.
NUMBER 42
Electors, Consider Your
Verdict!
Tht) contention of the. local organ
that' outside of tho present cabinet
there is not to lie found in the country, a man fit, to be a minister', is a
wanton libel upon the people. There
is not a constituency in the province,
excepting, perhaps, Kootenay, which
could not. furnish three better men
than the present ministers. It is
by deeds, not words, we would have
these men judged. ' Submit them to
the' crucial test of tlieir own nets,
and they must stand utterly condemned at the bar of public opinion.
Look at tlie sheaves of bad laws
they have passed. Look at their
fearful catalogue of  blunders and
'deceptions in dock-building, causing
ii charge of at least half a million
upon  the revenues of the province
| for what wns not, and ought not, to
iliuve cost it "a single dollar." Look
at their outrageous and unconstitu-
| tional attempts to swindle the strug-
i filing settlers by adding 24 per cent.
to what they owed on their homesteads, and then extorting 18 per
cent interest on the whole ! Look
nt their refusal to provide common
(schools for important settlements,
while at the sumo time they have
[employed , large sums of the public
revenue in giving the wealthiest and
least tax-paying community in tbe
country a free high school education!
Look ut their persistent refusal,
'upon tho plea of wunt of money,
•to provide roads or repair bridges by
'which settlers would be spared great
^convenience, loss and, iu some in-
Istances, actual danger to life and
property, while at tho same time
they have been squandering many
thousands of the people's money in
maintaining at Ottawa, with an
occasional trip ovor to London, it
''tadpole" who is only keeping alive
a stupid quarrel with a Government
iriendly to the Province. Look at
hese and many other acts which
meuk louder than words, and say
•vhat you think of the audacious indolence of claiming for these men a
Monopoly of the statesmanship uud
1'utriotism of the country. On
londity last there occurred ono of
Iioae instances constantly, tiiinspir-
rig, illustrative of the necessity for
'a efficient ferry across the Feasor
aver ut this place. Mr. Norris, a
|.rmer on the prairie six miles
[ick of Langley, having sold a
Vso to Mr. Rousseau of this city,
ide tho animal down the trunk
lad   to   Brownrille, expecting to
f*e it ferried over and delivered
the purchaser.   But after search-
for half the day for some means
. ferrying the animal over, he went
lick aud took it homo again, intend-
g to have it shipped from Langley
[-' the Brat steamer.   Now, wo may
jssibly bo told that we are making
■o much ado about a settler having
'st a day and travelled some thirty
ties in a fruitless attempt to de-
(cr a horse in this market; but
It we have merely mentioned this
Litance as an illustration of what
happening every day, through tho
[gleet of tho Government to take
ii necessary steps for the estttblish-
f nt of an efficient steam ferry, or
, efficient ferry of any kind, at
|s point   But it is not alone tliose
jo make unsuccessful or expensive
.'d unsatisfactory attempts to reach
.s  market  witli  their  produce.
|e)k at the influence of such a con-
Son of  things.     Think of  the
idroda ef   instances  in   which.
>\ving the difficulties of reaching
j market, the settlers do not mako
\ attempt at all.   That man must
filed be obtuse who cannot see that
(j, isolation of this murket, owing
ji to the absence of facile means
rSmuiuiiication with, the surround-
«; settlements, will inevitably rein ruining its trade.   We ara
■' aware that a recital df the pri
ns and losses of the settlers on
Mainland will awaken little con
cern at James Bay, Bat it is fitting
that, on this the eve of a general
election, such matters should he fully
and fairly discussed, if order that
there may be an inteilifBiit and vigorous application of till great constitutional' remedy—in 'order that
the electors may, by mark* upon their
ballot papers, truly input* their
opinion of these men, who, while
exhibiting such stolid disregard of
the best interests of the most im
portant class—the fanners—havo,
by incompotenoy .mm ohicanery,
brought the country Into a sorry
plight. It is no snap verdict that
is asked of the country. It is no
party vote the electors are asked to
coBt. What we ask aud implore
them to do is closely and impartially
to scrutinize the acts bf the men
now in power ; and if they condemn
them, thou let them so exercise their
franchise us to place men' in the
new House who will put the affairs
of the Province upon a sound basis,
and' aid and encourage all classes of
the people to unite in a "long pull
aiid a strong pull" so as to enable
the country to take full advantage
of'the tide of prosperity which ought
to flow from railway development.

Fish Culture and fanning.
The Sun Francisco liulhtin says:—
Owing tn a dbiiyreonierit, three yours
ago. between thu tlshennun and canneries, no tiah were oauullt'fur fuiir
weeks previous to the eiiil of tho lish-
iujr timo which extended the close sea-
si-n that much longer. The result uf
sue*, extension waa apparent in 1831
by tho greatly increased' run of the
salmon. In 1880 nver ton million
pounds of tish were caught, and in
1881 the catch was estimated to be
over fifteen million pounds, au increase
of 50 per cent. This your it in supposed thero will bo a larger increase.
This is confirmatory uf tbe wisdom
evinced in tlie enactment, of statutes
guarding tlie fish during the close season. Tlio Fisli Com mission era have
fur ten years obtained Btntmtics from
the canneries of the quantities of tish
caught. On the strength of this information the Fish Commissioners
have been able to conduct tlieir operations intelligently. The -lUpply of fish
has been so largely increased by these
intelligent efforts that new canneries
havo buen able to start, and thu older
institutions have been able to increase
thoir capacity and product. It is just
as necessary to the welfare uf thu.caii*
neries as it is for the guidance of the
Fish Commissioner tlmt all tlie information in the possession uf canneries
and fishermen concerning tbe catch
and movements of the salmon iu Sacramento river and its tributaries should
be freely communicated to tlio Commissioners The very existence of the
canneries depends upon a proper and
sytematic continuance, of the supply,
which exporie'nee has proven must be
artificially maintained.
To which King, Morso & Co, replied:—
Editor Bulletin.—Interested parties aro at present engaged iu au attempt to "bear" tho canned salmon
market. We notice by an editorial in
your columns ou Saturday evening an
item that will probably assist this
movement, which we take it, is not
your aim ur intention. We believe in
tho fish canneries, and consider their
undertakings laudable, and know that
thoir efforts havo met with a fair meed
of success, but the statement iu your
leader is, to say the least, premature,
as there is at present but a Blight run
of fish in tlio Sacramento, and not one
of the canneries is running .cm more
than quarter time. Experienced libher-
meu predict a small run fur the entire
season, and at this writing we are inclined tu agree with them. At all
events, a 50 per cent, increase ovor
last year's run, or oven a run that will
begin to equal it, is at this late date
almost beyond probability, although
our interests (having recently invested
a large sum of money un the theory of
the fish canneries, that a large run
would certainly be insured this season),
would prompt us to hope as long as
there was anything to hang a hope ou,
The frequency uf the main points iu
your article iu the public prints, loads
us to believe that it is not official front
the canneries. Yours truly, '', -

Tbe Labor question Again.
Elsewhere we publish an article
from the Coknist in whicli it is
pointed ont that the remarks mado
in the House of Commons by Sir
John Macdonald clearly prove that
tbe Walkem Government have been
recreant to their duty and false to
their professions and promises—that
they had never so much as let tho
Dominion Premier know that British
Columbia had the slightest objection
to Chinese labor being imported for
railway work. We supposed everybody knew that the pretended opposition of Ministers to Chinese immigration was mere affectation; but we
confess wo expected them to carry
tbe sham to the extent of sending
some remonstrance, however wheyey,
to Ottawa. Up to the present time
we ware disposed to hold the Federal
Government responsible to a great
extent for allowing the province to
drift into this pestilential yellow
tide; but it would now appear that
we, to some extent at least, wronged
the Government. It is perfectly true
that at least one of tho representatives from British Columbia had, in
his peculiar way, a good deal to say
in the House of Commons against
Chinese immigration ; but, as a Bet
off to that, it should be remembered
that another member from this province, in tbe Upper House, had expressed very different views, claim
ing for the Chinese that they were
in a measure a necessity here, and
that tbey were really more moral
and well-behaved than the Caucasian
nets. Sir John Macdonald can
hardly bo blamed if, hearing these
conflicting statements, and receiving
no expression or remonstrance from
the Provincial Government, he remained under the impression that
'Columbia had no grievance of the
kind. It could hardly be expected
that he would go a-lisliing for a
grievance for a province which had
shown no backwardness in making
known its wants. Under these circumstances, and viewing tbe matter
in the light of Sir John's remarks
the other day, one cannot longer
hesitate to admit that the Local
Government must be held responsible for the present extremely unsatisfactory state of affairs in this regard, and it is all the more aggravating when it is seen how apparent.
Iy ready tbe Government at Ottawa
would have been to step forward and
■apply a remedy, did occasion arise.
It would appear from the Premier's
recent utterances that he would have
•been only too happy to have acted in
the matter had there been uny complaint. But while rendering the past
more aggravating, this phase gives
hope for the future, inasmuch as it
constructively conveys the assuranee
that tbe Dominion Government will
be quiok to hear and to act, when
made properly aware of our grievance. We desire now to direct attention for a moment to the ruinous folly of permitting the present state of
things to continue. It is reckoned
that considerably more than thirty
millions will be expended on railway
work in the Mainland part of this
province during the next four or five
yean. Possibly three or four mil
lions more may be added for Island
railway work. Only a littlo over two
million! baa yet been spent. This
statement may aid the reader in ap
proximately grasping the enormity
of the labor question involved. Just
think what the consequences must
be if mattan are allowed to drift on
in tho future as in the past—no or
ganized effort made to introduce Caucasian labor, and the ever swelling
tide of what is really slave labor still
rolling in from Asia, Is the reader
»ware of this fact, Every Mongolian
worker imported for the railway
contractor coats in the first instance
$100. In other words, the sum of
$100 apiece is advanced to the company dealing in this Mongolian stook,
leaa than one half of whicli oovors
•xpenses, tho balance representing
the manstealer's preliminary profits.
The railway contractor, of course, is
supposed to deduct this advance
bonus from the wages of his bondman. Now what we desire to point
out i*. this: Under a broad and well
•figest*"! scheme, a similar advance
would suffice to bring a first-rate
class of Englishmen and Irishmen
and Scotchmen from thcOld Country;
and who will say that one of these
would not represent more real value
to the country than two, aye, than
half-a-dozen, of those 1 And think,
0 think, of tbe tens of thousands in
tho Old Country to whom such a
translation would be the highest
earthly blessing. If these figures be
correct, it seems little less than a
crime to allow the destructive yellow
tide to continue to flow in and the
impoverishing stream of gold to flow
out, whon all these millions might
bo retained nnd devoted towards
creating large and prosperous communities of onr own race and religion, through whose instrumentality
the vast resources of this country
would be developed for the country's
good. This is a large question, which
should not bo left to the railway
contractor or to the Dominion Government or to the Provincial Govern
ment; but, all three being directly
and deeply interested in it, all three
should take hold of it concurrently
and work out an efficient scheme.
As a matter of course, it is for tho
Provincial Government to take tlie
initiative, and it will be well for this
question to be freely discussed at the
approaching election, in order that
the new government may not be left
in doubt as to the mind and will of
the constituencies. For our own
part, we believe this to be one of
the most important subjects demanding attention at the present time.

Editorial Notes.
Those who rushed over to Alberni a
short time ago for the purpose of securing land at an imaginary railway
terminus are naturally very indignant
because of the subsequent action of
Indian Commissioners Powell and
O'Reilly in reserving the land fur
Indian purposes. While we have
not very much sympathy with the
"grabbers," we cannot see quite clearly
how the Dominion authorities can step
iu and reserve or in any manner deal
with these lands. Certainly they cannot do bo without the concurrence of
the Provincial Government, - unless,
indeed, by the disallowance of the Act
of last session, repealing the Act of
1875 which conveyed these lands to
the Dominion. It is stated that those
who located lands at Alberni are going
to contest their claims, and consequent
developments will therefore be looked
for with somo interest.
There can be no question that the
steam service between Victoria nnd the
Mainland is anything but satisfactory,
and it is not surpfising that movements are on foot looking to a remedy
that wilt probably take the breath
away from five-and-a-!ialf-miles-an-
hour steamboat men. Such a service
as the people havo been compelled to
submit to for some time past would
not be tolerated for a moment in any
other part of tho civilized world and
cannot possibly be endured much
longer here. It affords us very great
satisfaction, therefore, to learn that
there is a scheme ou foot which wilt
completely revolutionize our relations
with the outside world. We are not
at liberty at the present time to indicate the nature of tho scheme; but
this much we may be permitted to say,
that if it should not prove altogether
satisfactory to our friends beyond the
gulf, they will only have themselves to
blame. The Mainland has submitted
long enough to the 51 mile an hour
business and to the serums delays and
expense consequent upon her commerce and travel and mails passing
through a circuitous and unnatural
channel. _
The prospect of a brisk demand at
fair prices for Fraser river salmon is
good. As was shown in a previous
article a great deal nf the Columbia
river pack is likely to find a now market iu the Eastern States, thus leaving
the Old Country markets clear for our
own. Add to this the faot that thero
ia a growing demand for canned salmon
in tho Old Country as well as in the
Eastern Provinces and that the yield
of Sacramento river promises to be
only about one-half of what it was lost
year, whilo that of Columbia river is
scarcely better, and the reasons
for more than ordinary preparations
going on for tho Fraser river fish harvest are explained. Last year there
were eight canning establishments in
operation. This yeur there wilt be
twelve, if not thirteen. The great
desideratum now is a good, prolonged
run of fish. Everything depends upon
that. Of course, there is the labor
difliculty to be overcome; but should
there be plontyof fish, labor will be
got somehow, although it may be dear.
The employment of so many of tho
Lower Fraser Indians on the railway
works at $2 a day is sure to exert a
more or less injurious influence upon
the fishing industry. This labor question in a most serious one, affecting
every industry in tho country, and the
sooner a satisfactory solution can be
found the better.

knowing something about thu Messrs.

He died of consumption, and bore bis
long illness with exemplary Christian

Prince Edward Island. — The
general election for the local legislature
was held ou the 8th inst. and the
result is claimed as a great Liberal
victory, In the lute House the Conservatives had 2-1 out of the SO
members. It is claimed by some
authorities that in thu new House the
Liberals will havo a majority of 2, nnd
by others that tbe conservatives will
have a majority of 2. Tharo rooiiis
every reason for believing tlmt, in the
new House, parties will be very evenly
divided, but we incline to think tliat
the majority small though it bu, will
bo on the Conservative side.

The Excursion to Nanaimo.
The steamer Prim-ess Louise sailed
at 7 o'clock ou Wednesday morning,
her deck.) and saloons crowded with
excursionists, nnd the Hand playing
lively airs from tho npajftH*; deck. The
day was magnificent, and the run over
nil that could be desired, the good
steamer arriving at Nariaiino at 11.HO.
Upon binding the oxcursioriiats were
met by Mnyor Unto and a largo deputation of citizens, accoinpnuied by the
united Nanaimo nnd Wellington
Bands, playing a welcomo. After
acknowledging strains from our Rand,
tho party wore conducted to tho celebration grounds, whero they mingled
with tho gay throng. The programme
of aanioH "nd sports occupied the
whole day, and iu the evening dancing
was commenced and kept up till midnight. After lvnvu-tfiking, the New
Westminster party went on board and
sailed for homo about 2.M0. As they
wero leaving, the stunmship Victoria,
iu port at thu time, saluted thorn with
three blasts of hor whistle and a shot
from her gun, a compliment which
was duly acknowledged by hearty
cheers for Capt. Plummcr. The party
arrived here at 8 o'clock on Thursday
morning, and, before debarking, gave
three cheors for Cnpt. Lewis and his
officers for kind attentions, which
wero fittingly acknowledged by Cnpt.
Lewis. From those who went, we
hear but one opinion, and that of unqualified satisfaction. There wns no
liquor sold on .board. There wero no
hitches or impleasantnossus. All went
off smoothly and well, Tho amount
received for tickets was 9328.75, and,
after paying all expenses, there remained a surplus of $10, which the
Committee very properly added to the
amount paid to the Baud.

One notable feature uf tho occasion
was the absence of intoxicants, so that
there were, of course, no sore heads

could not truthfully be said of certain
young hearts,

A Mongolian youth applied to a

No Coniiilalnl.
In reply to a question ou tho 12th
May, Sir John Macdonald snid tlmt
"no complaint with respect to the influx of Chinese to British Columbia
had reached Ottawa-" meaning that
the government of the province had
not drawn tho attention of thu Ottawa
government to thu inot that Mongols
are pouring into the provinco at a rate
that wiil soon make them the dominant
race. This goveruiuo.it went into oflico
with thu anti-Chinese cry; it passed u
Chinese tax bill bo stringent in its
character ns to be unconstitutional, and
it frequently professed, iu response to
resolutions of the local House, to havo
drawn tho attention of the Dominion
government to the unfortunate fact
that the labor of thu country is rapidly
passing from white to yellow hands.
Rut now comes Sir John Macdonald,
who asserts that tiie Dominion government have heard no complaint from
the local government on tlie subject.
Had this government performed its
duty, instead of these 0,000 Chinese
laborers in the province at this period,
there would have been as many white
men, with wives and families, settled
upon the public lunds of the province
and building up homes with the money
paid them by tho contractors, The
question is a largo and serious one; but
this government havu heveitshown that
they understand or 'appreciate it either
from a political or social standpoint.

Reciprocity with Hnwalla.
In tho House of Commons, on the
1st inst., Mr. Jlunster, in a very good
speech, moved for a Committee to prepare an Address to thu Queen, praying
for commercial reciprocity with tho
Hawaiian Islands, In tho courso of
some remarks recognizing thedesirable-
uess of the object and promising that,
if the resolution wero withdrawn, the
matter would have the serious attention
of the Government during recess, Sir
John Macdonald said:—"I may say to
my lion, friend that lost summer
I hnd lite honor of being presented
to Ilia Majesty (the King of Ha-
wniia) when I was in England, find
he entered with me into a very long
and interesting conversation as to the
productions of liis Kingdom, nnd
spoke very strongly nbout his'desire to
opuu negotiations with British America
on tho Pacific, and mado nerious
enquiries ns tu what our probnhlu
products would be; and I, ns representing ono of tbo constituencies there,
was able to givo him tho most full and
explicit information with respect to all
the productions of Mritish Columbia.
Hu that the initiative has been taken
iu this way for the establishment of
commercial relations between the
Islands ami Canada."
Mr. Homer, speaking of the importance of establishing commercial relations between the two countries, said:
—"Before thu existence of this treaty
between the United States and the
Hawaiian Islands, there was a comparatively largo aud growing trade between that country and British Columbia; but since this treaty has come into
operation, Hint trade has dwindled
down to almost nothing. If reciprocity
can he established between the Dominion uf Canada and the Hawaiian Islands, wo might not only recover that
trade, but increase it very materially.
British Columbia can supply them
with fish, lumber, coal nud other products; and you, in the present state of
your manufactures iu the Hastem Provinces, will be able to supply them
with all tlio machinery and all tho
descriptions of manufactures they may
roquire. In return, you will bo able
to tako their sugar, fruit and other
products for which there is now a large
and growing market in British Columbia, and which v'U bo increased by
the opening up t' the North-West
when tho railway is finished. Taking
this view of tho matter, it is very de-
sirnble that some action should   bo
taken for the purpose of establishing
reciprocity between the Dominion and
the Hawaiian islands, more particularly as tho present treaty between the
United States and those Islands is
likely to come to a sudden end, if we
are to judgo of tho feeling between
them and the United States. Should
that treaty cease and a reciprocity
treaty be established between the Dominion and those Islands, I believe
tho result would bo highly beneficial
to both contracting parties. I hope
that during tlio recess the Dominion
Government will devote a portion of
its time to the .consideration of this
matter, and that it will bo able to report a good result at tho next meeting
of this Parliament."

"No, I shall not oppose that,1'replied Judith. And so impressed was
lio by her manner, and by every word
she said, that he felt as if tho cause
were gained whose side sho took.
"Thank you very much for tbat
promise/ he answered, "It will make
it much ensier for mo. You will of
course be the best judgo as to when it
is fitting to speak to Mrs. Conisbrough
uf the matter."
"Ifc must not be now, nor for some
days to come," replied Judith, rising.
"I will wish you good night, Mr.
Aglionby, and go to my mother, who
I am sure must want me,"
"Must you go? Then goad night."
Ho rose too.    "Miss Conisbrough, aro
you my enemy 1"
"No."
"Then will you proVO it, and acknowledge our consulship by shaking
hands with mo V
Judith looked at tho hand ho held
out—at him—at tbe hand again; put
her own into it, and repeated, "Good
niidvt."
"I hope you will rest well," ho replied, holding open the dour as she
passed out.
"I lmvo shaken hands with him—
what will Delphine say'/" was Judith's
reflection as sbo went up stairs. She
found her mother asleep. Sho lot
Mrs. Aveson go, and seated herself
beside the bed, folded her hands together, and thought.
"No, he does not know," Bhe reflected. "I should be paralyzed by
tho possession of that money—of any
of it. But it shows a generous mind
to wish to givo us some of it, after
what mamma said this morning. Ue
has had his troubles, too—any one can
seo that. I daresay ho could tell a
tale of how he has been neglected, and
disappointed. His eyes aro good—
thoy are not afraid to moot yours.
When they are not mocking you they
are pleasant. Oh, T hope mamma will
como to torms with him! A long
strifo would bo so fearful—and then
if he did got angry with hor, he could
crush hor to atoms."
When Judith had gone, Bernard
felt he-had a duty to fulfill. His conversation with Miss Conisbrough bad
brought it again to his mind. It was
tho duty of v riting to Lizzie Vane, tu
acquaint her with bis now fortunes—
and hers, for of course sho was to be
tho partaker for the 'ului'Q of all bis
joys and sorrow. He distinctly felt it
to bo a duty: was it not also a pleasure ) l As .that tl'OHght occurred to
hiin, ho started up, muttering, "By
Jove! of course it its!" And lie seized
pen and pa.'or, and scrawled oil' those
lines, in tho fullness of his heart:
"Mv Dkahest Lizzie,—You will
soo train the date of this that I am in
the house of my fathers. You will
wonder, too, what I am doing here,
after all I said to you about my determination nevor to enter it. What I
have to tell you, my darling, is a. very
aerious matter fur Doth of us. You
remember my telling you last Monday
about my accidental meeting with Mv.
Aglionby of Scar Foot, my grandfather. On Wednesday lust be died.
They telegraphed for me to attend the
funeral. Ho was buried this morning,
and nn his will being read, it turns out
that he has left tho whole of his property te mo. I was astonished, I own,
aud in a measure gratified; one naturally is gratified at finding oneself suddenly rich when one had least reason
to expect to bo anything of the kind.
"But there are shades tu the picturo
and drawbacks to tho advantages, and
you, my dear Lizzie, with your tender
heart, will easily understand when I
explain that my joy is not unmixed.
It seems that tlie Mrs. Conisbrough
whom 1 told you about, and who lives
with hor daughter.' at Yoresett, the
market town, had always been given
to understand that she would inherit
the property.
"My grandfather's will was made
only the night beforo he died, in a fit
of pique, for some reason wliich no
ono seems able tu understand. They
are entirely ignored—not even mentioned in it. Mrs. Conisbrough and
her eldest daughter wero present at
tho reading of tho will. The pour
lady has taken it very iuucb to heart:
her means are exceedingly small, and
she thinks the will a most unjust one.
(So do I, for that matter-" ggre-
giously unjust will.) And s' threatens to dispute it. She will have, no
chance, of course, but I feel my hands
in a measure tied until I know tlio
worst sho can do, and until some compromise is come to for hor benefit.
Meantime, sho is ill up stairs in this
vory house! her agitation having
brought on an attnek of tho heart.
Sho is attended by hor daughter, for
whom I feel vory sorry. I feel sorry
for them all. They aro gentlewomen,
aud evidently have had a hard struggle
all thoir lives. Thero is such a sad,
patiunt, yet dignifiud expression upon
MiBs Cunisbrmigh's faco. Sho cannot
but command respect and admiration.
I wish you knew hor. One dreams
fast sometimes, and -inco this morning I have boen dreaming of you settled horo, and myself, having ell'ected
a compromise with Mrs. Conisbrough,
nnd proved to her that I am not the
rapacious upstart she takes me fur—
and of you and tho Misses Conisbrough getting on very well together,
and being great friends. I think this
is not so foolish as most dreams. J
seo no reason why it should not come
true. ty'm Conisbrough is as fur as
possible from being forbidding, though
she looks so grave, and I am bui*o
your winning ways would soon make
her love you. This is a most beautiful old place—very different from the
din and dust of the town. To-morrow I must try to make a little skotch
of the lako and the house, and send
you them. As soon as I can snatch
the time I shall run over to Irkford
and see you, and discuBS future plans.
I can hardly realize that our wudding,
which wo thought must wait forsu
many years, need not now bo long
doferred—no longer than a certain
willful young, woman chooses to put it
off. Romember me to your mother*
and Heaven bless you, my own darling, is Hie wish of your faithful Bweet
heart, "Bernard Agmonby, '
His heart warmed as ho wrote the
words, and thought of his beautiful
Lizzie, and cherished his little plan of
making her and the Misses Conisbrough into great friends. Poor Bernard! Ho wruto out of the fullness of
his heart, not out of his knowledge of
either men or women.
Ho had chosen to remain at Scar
Foot rather than accept Mr. Whaley's
invitation that ho would return with
him to Yoresett and bo his guest. Mr.
Whaley mny oasily be pardoned for
not having surmised for a moment,
what Aglionby's demeanor certainly
did not suggest, the unspoken impulse
which urged hiin to remain- -the longing whicli lay deep at hit heart, to become better acquainted, in silence and
undisturbed, with this old place whore
his fathers had lived, and where now
he was to live after them; to imbibe,
as it were, sumo ideas of tho life, of
the homo, tbat was to be his. Unspoken though it was, the sentiment,
the desire, was there. Deop down in
bis rough heart, aud crusted over with
tlie bitterness which with him came
too readily to the surface, there wero
walls of something vory like romance
and sentiment. Since this morning a
thousand schemes had come crowding
into his mind, a thousand not wholly
selfish plans and purposes, which now
he could carry out to his heart's con-
tout. All his poetic instincts had been
cramped, if not warped, by the life he
had ted, but under his unpromising
exterior thero they wore—thoy did
exist; and it was they and they alone
whieh had prompted him to refuse Mr,
Whaley's invitation.
His sleep, un that first night that ha
rested under this roof, was sweet and
undisturbed. When Sunday morning
dawned, and ho awoke, he at first
could not imagine where he was, so
profound was the silence, except for
thu chirping birds and the smothered
rush of the brook at the back of the
houso. Gradually his senses returned
to him. He remembered it all, sprung
out of bed, went to the window, and
lifted tho blind.
The air of tho October morning was
sharp; thu sun was brilliant, tho atmosphere cloar; tbe view before him
struck with a strange thrill upon him
—a thrill half pleasure, half pain. The
clear moors just opposite; the dimmer
forms of the great fells behind them;
tho glittering silver surface of the little hike; the garden just under his
eyes, filled with homely flowers, and
with the groon field beyond, sloping
down to the water's edge—it was, indeed, very fair for anyone who had eyes
to see! But to him it, was more—it
was a revelation; there was tho peculiar stillness of a country Sunday
morning over it all; it was the end of
tho world. Most of us are acquainted
with one sensation—that of arriving at
some seaside place—of sleeping soundly all night; of awakening tho next
morning, and on looking out, finding
oneself confronted by the open Boa.
That is a sensation which nevor grows
old ur stale. Something of the thrill
and joy which attends its first time of
being experienced, hangs also about
each recurrence of it. It was with just
such a sensation that Bernard Aglionby's eyes rested now on the prospect
before him. Vague, unconscious contrasts wero formed in his mind—this
place and that—Scar Foot on a Sunday
morning, and 13 Crane Street on n
Sunday morning! He opened the window, and inhaled the puro, frosty,
fragrant air—Arcadian air. It was
very early, ho found, not yet six
o'clock; but going t Vd again was a
thing not tu be thought of; and he
dressed, went down stairs, and out of
doors, and walked to the lakeside with
thu feeling that be was in a dream. It
was as wonderful to him, and certainly
quite as agreeable, as her first ball to
a girl of seventeen who has been
brought up in strict seclusion. Hi
wondered at tho intensity of his own
enjoyment, and its naivete.
"it is hereditary, I supposo," he
thought, ''and I can't help it. It's
the stock I come of. When a man's
forefathers have lived and moved and
had their being for hundreds of
years in a spot liko this, and lmvo appreciated it, a love of such things must
ho implanted in that man's nature at
his birth. So it is with me, I supposo.
I fear Lizzie won't delight in it as I
do."
Bernard spent almost tho whole of
that day out of doors, literally "ex- I
ploring" with the avidity and interest I
of a schoolboy who has found a promising place for birds'-nests. Ho walked completely round the lake, and
thus, from under tho village of Busk
at the opposite side, he got a fine view
of Scar Foot, and gazed at it till he
could gaze no lunger.
tic met a farmer's boy, and asked
him the name of some of the great, gray
fjlls in tho distance, and tho buy told
him, aud added tbat there must have
boen rain iu Lancashire, for "look at
t' Stake," which, as Bernard saw, was
flecked with irregular white lines.
"All tho becks is uot," addod tho boy,
and Aglionby smiled. At Irkford—
for miles around Irkford—tho "becks"
wore black as ink, and foul as only the
streams of a town can bo with all manner of pollution.
He went in again, to his dinner, in
the middle of the day, and sent a message to Mrs. Aveson to enquire after
"those ladies," Tho answer brought
by the housekeeper was, "Miss Conisbrough's cuinpliiuentB, and she was
quite well; but Mrs. Conisbrough was
rather poorly this morning." On her
own account, Mrs. Aveson added that
Mrs. Cuiiisbrough was terribly weak,
and had to lie on her buck as still as a
mouse, or palpitations would come on
again. Dr. Lowther had called, and
said that complete rest was still necessary. Miss Conisbrough had boen reading the Morning Service to her mamma, and she was going to have her dinner with her up stairs. With this ho
had to be satisfied.
