Uurrent Events and Opinions.
If tho Cretans were the chmn-
pion liars  of   ancient tinios, the
Russians ure confessedly and boyond
all dispute their legitimate modern
successors.      Alexander  the  tirst
used to suy that liis courtiers would
steal his ships if they only knew
where to put thein, nnd even his
teeth  would  not he safe if  they
could   get   at   thein  conveniently.
And what they nre in stealing and
general corruption   they are even
more pre-eminently   in   falsehood.
Russian policy in Asia lias been
tersely put in a  single  sentence,
thus — "To advance and lie, nnd
then He and advance again,"   The
Russian authorities   have steadily
disclaimed nil aggressive intention,
but from time to time in one direction or another some one of their
generals has done what Komaroff
did a few weeks ago—has been formally repudiated in St. Petersburg,
and called a dull, meddlesome, and
presumptuous blockhead—then decorated, and the disputed territory
formally taken possession of   and
permanently held against all comers,
Tliis Russian aggressive policy has
lieen always   the same.    The end
has always sanctified   the means,
and the amount of lying ami wrongdoing involved in the process has
never apparently given the Czar a
moment's trouble.     All historical
facts prove to a demonstration that
in reference to all matters in Central Asia, or indeed anywhere else,
if the interests of Russia nre supposed to be involved, no representation made by Russian otHcials is to
be trusted for a single moment or
to the slightest extent.   It has been
■and is a process only of lying, and
thnt continually.     Every advance
lias beeu made after the most solemn
assurances bad lieen given that it
would  never be  attempted.     Tlie
Caspian was crossed, and  without
the slightest provocation tbe Turcoman territory invaded   and   conquered.   Then Khiva was taken;
then in 1880, after a hard struggle,
Geok Tope fell  into the same unscrupulous hands.    At a later period, and after a similar process of
lying, Merv wns captured.    Three
years ngo the Russians themselv
tixed   tho boundary  lino between
Afghanistan and the Turcoman te
ritory, and that line was fifty miles
to tho north of what is now claimed,
and consequently n long way north
of Penjdeh.   After solemnly declaring tlmt there was no thought of
proceeding     against    the     latter
city, it is found that at the very
time the Russian government knew
thnt it was taken, and now the
.declaration is that ou no consideration will it be given up!   In short,
no treaty can bind tlie Muscovite
but the treaty of  force.   He hus
•not even the grace of being ashamed
■of  his lying.    It is part of   the
general stock of trade, and is called
at once policy and genius.    How is
such a government to be ci alt with 1

NUMBER 38
The gain certainly would bo greater
if England should displace Russia
in Central Asia than it would be if
Russia should expel England from
India. Tu other words, England is
in a very touch more advanced and
enlightened stage of civilization
than Russia, Any vital concession,
therefore, to postpone war would
seem to be a mistake upon the part
of the English government, because
it would givo Russia advantages in
the final contest, which seems to be
hardly avoidable. The situation of
England, moreover, is such that
any apparent hesitation to assert
her rights as against Russia would
be morally prejudicial in the highest
degree. The national feeling that
the power of tlie British name has
been declining, that the country
has been terribly humiliated in
Egypt, thnt tho Gladstono administration is not sufficiently sensitive
to tlie demands of British honor,
would make the country jealous of
any issuo of the prosont situation
which left the slightest imputation
upon British courage or British
ability. Mr. Gladstone, however,
is much more truly and essentially
nu Englishman than Lord Beaconsfield, and bis instinct will apprise
hiin of the real feeling of tho country. The only question in regard
to bim is whether, if the true policy
be war, he is of the right temperament for a war minister. Louis
Blanc said of lum long ago that his
mind was too judicial and conscientious for a, great party leader, and
possibly he lucks the unquestioninj
push and persistence which nre in
dispensable toa great war minister
Tlie decision, however, ean not be

That Mr. Gladstone and every
intelligent Englishman desires to
avoid war, if it be honorably possible, is undoubtedly true. War iu
uny ease is always an immense, although sometimes a necessary, evil;
and a war with Russia would be a
conllict so vast and of such far-
reaching consequences that an English statesman may well wish to be
quite sure that so tremendous a
struggle ought to be invoked before
taking the irrevocable stop. Napoleon's famous phrase that Europe
would become till republican or all
Cossack was founded in the belief
that Russia must expand, aud tlml
its European expansion could tie
successfully resisted only by tho
political principle and society which
are radically opposed to its own.
Russian expansion, although not
toward Europe, has been long prosecuted. It hns been gradually subduing Central Asia, and of course
it is not for England, whose Queen
bears also tho primrose uud pinchbeck title of Empress of India, to
pretend to oppose this expansion
upon any other ground than British
interests in the highest and most
comprehensive sense. That sense
of the phrase, however, includes the
general welfare of civilization and
of Christendom. The plea that
Russia seeks merely to push through
the mountains of Afghanistan iu
order to obtain an outlet upon tho
Indian Ocean is obviously a pretext.
There is no good reason thnt Russia
should carry on a perpetually extending system of conquests which
is uot a reason that othor nations
should do the same thing. Doubtless shu has the samo right in Turk-
estuu that England has iu India
But, as wo said last week, it would
he impossible to show that thu ap-
appearance of Russia iu India
would be a benefit to Christendom,
Tried (lie Young Han,
A tall, red-haired young mnn with
nn innocent fnce and n bluck necktie
sut alone iu n car sent on nno of thu
swift-flying trains cf tho Pennsylvania
Railroadt bound for Washinghton.
He hud begun to rend a religious nuws-
paper when a benevolent-looking inid-
ale-ngcd mnn entered and sat down
beside him. For nu hour tho young
mau read hia paper ami tbu old mnn
watched tbo telearaph poles go by.
Becoming tired uf litis amusement, the
stranger fished a half-dozen littlo pill
boxes out of a deep pocket in his overcoat uml placed them in his lap. The
young man put awny his paper and
eyed his neighbor, who, pulling out a
roll of lulls from his vest pocket,
seluctuil it note and placed it iu one of
the boxes.
"Du you suppose you could select
the box i-oti ta innis- thu note?'1 ho naked
of  tlio y11ting man, with a smilo nnd ti
k that seemed  to suy, "Lei ua be
sociable.;"
Don't think I could," laconically
replied the latter, pulling his moustache.
The stranger himsolf picked out the
box, took out the bill, and put a $10
note iu its placo. This timo, howover,
a corner of tho note was loft sticking
out nfter tho cover liad been put mi
the box.
"Now do you think you could pick
it out ?" hu said, showing his tooth.
"Of course I could," tho young man
replied. ,
"Well, if yen will givo mu a dollar,
I will lot you try.
"Oh, no, I wouldn't do that. You
aro not sharp at all. You've luft a
corner of thnt bill sticking out of tho
box so nny foul cuuld pick it out."
"Why, of courso," said tho sharper,
apparently confused by tho discovery.
"How could I make such a blunder I"
Thoroupon ho took out the $10 bill nml
put iu its placo n bright new 820 note,
The corner of tho bill stuck out ns be*
foru, but the man pretended not to
notice it,
"Now will you try it?" he continued,
nfter wiping his forehead with a red
handkerchief. "Civu me a dollar and
take your pick. You've got a chance
to make Sill in clean money,"
The ymnig man's facu did not show
the least animation at this declination.
If there wna the beginning of anmilu
hidden under his moustache, it did nut
reveal itself when ho answered:
■ "Ymi are a stranger to me. I dun't
want to tako 81!) out of you. It
wouldn't bo gentlemanly in me to do
so. If wo weru old friends tho case
would bo different. But I suu plainly
you are not used to the wicked ways
of ..the world, Ynu nro not sharp.
You havo luft tho corner of that $20
note sticking out of tho cover just as
you did tho othor. Ymi ought to go
and work ou a farm awhile, you ought,"
Tho perspiration uow poured from
tho shtirper'a forehead. He had
caught a Tartar, nml had had a hard
tpno of it, too. The rcd-hoadud
young man tuok the boxes out of tho
hands of his neighbor and, after co-
turning tlie $20 note, said:
"Perhaps you would like to try
your hand at picking out the lucky
box? I'll put thia $50 bill iu thin
and a 910 tmtu in this box. Oivo mo
95 and you shall try your luok."
Thu man reluctantly paid over thu
money, and, after thu young man had
shaken up thu boxes in his hat, took
uti one from whicli the green corner
of a note appeared, When he hud
pulled oil' the cover he tound it con
tainod only a piece of a revenue
Btaimi. His faco fell at thu discovery.
"Try _U again," said his tormentor.
He tried again, but with no botter
luck.
"Take thu lot,'* laughed the young
man, pouring thom out iuto his neighbor's lap,
The awiudlor opeuuil ovory box, but
not a sign of n bill appeared.
"Horo uro tho bills, safe in my
pocket,''said thu bright young follow,
producing lliu noies from his vest
pocket uud slinking thuin in the facu
uf his neighbor.
"Thu next time you want to try
your game on a stranger, don't pick
out a 11)1111 who is in ihe mimu liUBtliOiB

Wo, understuntl that Senator
Mclnnes hus had tho proposed
amendments to the Scott Act so
changed in tlie senate thnt the net
may now be submitted to any electoral district in tliis province. Not
lon;*; ago wo mentioned that iu case
of submission in n district such as
this, it would not apply to any city
within the district. The modification accomplished hy Senator Mclnnes docs away with the exemption
of cities, and makes the law applicable to all places within the
district. if the changes aro confirmed by the house of commons, it
is quite probable that the Scott Aet
may be carried in the eity and district of New Westminstor this
season.
The Gale of India.
Col. Malleson, of the i'-rilish army
says: "Herat is called the Gate of
India, because, lhrou»li ir, and
through it alone, the valleys can bo
entered whieh lead to the only vulnerable part of I mltii. Another
fact illustrates the enormous value
of Herat. Place an army tliere, and
nothing need be brought to it from
Europe. Within the limits of the
Heruti territory all the great roads
leading on India converge. Tlie
mines of the Herati district supply
lead, iron, and sulphur ; the surface
of many parts of the country is
laden with sult-petre; the willow
and the poplar, which make the best
charcoal, abound; the fields produce
in abundance corn, and wine, aud
oil. From the population, attracted
to its new rulers by good government, splendid soldiers might be
obtained." Geu, Soboleff, the Itussian, says: "A body of European
troops established at Herat, and
standing with its front to the southeast, would draw upon it the intention of tbe whole population of India. In tbat lies tho signification
of a military occupation of Herat.
and it is not without reason that a
number of English experts, knowing India well, have expressed their
belief that were an enemy tu occupy
Herat with a powerful force, the
English army without having tired
a shot, would consider itself half
beaten." From these opinions of
distinguished military officers it
would seem that the possession of
Herat is of vast consequence to
Great Britain. On the other hand
many military authorities ami statesmen declare that India would be
perfectly safe evon if Russia held
Herat and the whole of Afgunistun.
Restricting the Chinese.
Last summer Thk Columbian
published the principal clauses of
the two Chinese acts passed by the
provincial legislature at the session
of 1884. One of these acts, it is
well known, was disallowed at Ottawa: the other, we believe, is now
in force. The one which escaped
the federal scalping knife does not
limit the immigration of Chinese,
but it makes certain very wise regulations whieh promise much interest
to these poople while they remain
in the country, Every Chinaman
must pay 510 a year in the first
place for the privilege of residing in
this delightful province. This tax
upon 10,000 celestials will yield to
the treasury "r'100,000 a year—if it
can be collected, In default of payment, the Chinaman leaves himself
liable to a line of $4:0. All persons
employing Chinese are required to
furnish a list of tliose iu tlieir employ, and are subject to ti fine of
8100 if they fail so to do. It is
provided that keepers of toll gates
shall require all Chinese passing
tlieir gates to show a receipt for tlie
payment of this §10 tax, and employers shall hold the tax receipts
of thoso iu their employ until they
are discharged. A Chinaman must
pay £15 for a free miner's certificate, or forfeit $40. The use of
opium, except in medicine and surgery, is forbidden under a penalty
of $100 for each ofl'enco. One of
the most important clauses of the
bill is the one relating to the herding of Ohinamen as now practised.
It is required that every dwelling
or room shall have .184 cubic feet
of space to each occupant! This
clause .carries with it a penalty of
$59, and we hopo it will bo rigorously enforced. It is a notorious
fact that in this city and elsewhere
thn Chinose are herded together in
in littlo filthy tenement* in such
numbers and amidst suoh tilth as to
threaten the safety of overy citizen.
Jf it unfortunately happens that
cholera, or any sueh fatal epidemic,
should strike this country, the Chinese quarters would at once become
the center of infection. There are
other important provisions in the
bill, but tliose we have mentioned
are suflicient to show its scope and
intent. Tf we cannot prevent the
importation of Chinamen, wc may
at least make it interesting for those
who venture to put themselves within our reach; and in doing so we
will both replenish our treasury nnd
make these people wish they wero
not Chineso.
The Last Outrage.
On Monday the new time table
of the mail steamers between tins
city and Victoria went into operation. The people, therefore, have
hud a taste of what seems to be in
store for them during the summer
unless energetic measures are adopted to assert what may be claimed
as a right. We are at, a loss to
conceive upon what plea of necessity or fairness the mail contractors
or the post otlice authorities planned
and consummated an arrangement
so full of inconvenience and disappointment to the very people in
whose interest the sorvico has been
established. Eastern mails arrive
early every afternoon at Victoria.
It was bad enough to have these
mails lie there from 2 or .'I o'clock
in the afternoon until 7 o'clock
next morning before they left for
the mainland, and it was provoking
enough to have them conveyed in
a steamer wliich sometimes took
10 and 11 hours to make 75 miles.
Ilut philosophers tell us that no
circumstances are ever so bad tbat
tbey could not be worse, It does
not require much application or
philosophical research to prove that
the last mail arrangement is infinitely worse than any under which
we have been suffering for many
years. If it was expedient sometimes to protest against the irregularities and delays whieh occurred
under the former service, it is positively necessary that the people
should now leave no means untried
which may restore to us the convenience of a reasonable mail service. Instead of remaining 15 or
l(i liours at Victoria, our mails are
now delayed in that city from 21 to
45 hours. Not only this, but they
arrive here at an hour wliich makes
it practically impossible to answer
correspondence by return steamer.
On Monday night the post olHco
wicket, opened for a few minutes
between K and 9 o'clock. Those
who happened to be present just at
that lime got their mail; those who
were not get. nothing until after !)
o'clock yesterday morning, two liours
after the mail steamer had left for
Victoria. IJusiness men who rent
boxes at the post ollice fared better,
but wore forced to work very late
if they happened to have much correspondence. Tt is necessary for
the postmaster to deliver the up-
country mail to the contractor at 9
o'clock. In the event of the Victoria mail arriving lute, this ean be
done only by making up the interior mail hefore distributing the
local letters. It may often happen,
therefore, and doubtless will Imp-
pen, that the local mail matter will
not be distributed at all until the
day after its arrival here. The
postmaster has only one assistant,
and cannot be expected to sit up all
night and be on hand for the supplementary mail at fi o'clock in the
morning. But if he liad a dozen
assistants, the grievance would not
be removed—it would merely be
modified. The postmaster and his
assistants are powerless to prevent
the late arrival of the mail steamer,
and the consequent late night work
which all business houses must endure. The C. P. N. Co. is paid a
very largo sum—over §1,000 per
month—to carry the mails between Victoria and Yale, It is not
supposed that this large subsidy is
merely a "cultua potlnteh" to the
company, for which no equivalent
is expected. In consideration of it
we presume the company is bound
to carry the mails upon fcertuill days,
within certain hours, and to .curry
thein on steamers suitable for the
accommodation of general traffic
We have no complaint to make
about the character or accommodation of the 0. P. N, steamers. The
Louise is an excellent boat, and the
Yosemite is us line a steamer ns one
would wish to travel upon. But
when the C, P. N. people quietly
pocket their subsidy, and then run
their steamers in the interest of
themselves, and iu opposition to
the interests of the communities
they are paid to serve, we beg to
protest; and we call up the authorities either to compel the company
to run its steamers in such a way as
to accommodate the public, or witli
draw tho subsidy. It is a remarkable fact that the people of Victoria
havo nover applied without success
for any important increase in mail
accommodation. They still retain
the ocean service from Han Kmn.
cisco nt a cost to the country of
q17,G40 a year, and thoy have a
daily mail by way of Tacoma from
the east, which costs ever so much
more. They have managed to get
all these things, while we have been
denied a subsidy for a mail direct
from Tacoma, and must be content
with a river service that is less convenient than it has been for many
years. We have no wish to quarrel with Victoria because of its
mail facilities, but we protest against
the increase of these while tlie service for the mainland is becoming
less and less effective. We are glad
to find tliat steps have already been
taken to inform the federal government on this matter. A protest
has been sent from the president of
the Hoard of Trade, and the effect
of it will be seen iu a paragraph
elsewhere. On Monday the city
council took the matter up; and we
hope a meeting of citizens will be
called if necessary to make a further protest, This matter must
not be allowed to stand as it is,
The outrage is too palpable, aud we
are sure the people of this city and
district will not permit themselves
to bo sat upon with impunity.

That Paha he.- A good deal of unnecessary energy seems to have buen
wasted over a letter wliich appeared in
Tut: Columbian of Saturday, objecting to the ptnpoaed church parade of
the volunteers. The letter was handed in late on Friday afternoon, and
although we did not agree with aome
of its expressions, it was published
without comment. We have the
greatest respect for the sentiments of
the writer of that letter, howover,
and did not. consider that the circumstances were such us to justify us in
refusing to publish it. With respect
to church parades, there is much difference of opinion. We think the one
hist Sunday was uncalled for under
the circumstances, although we arc
not prepared to condemn it, When
troops aro under regular and continuous military discipline, a church parade
is as much a part of the soldier's duty
as any other exercise, aud is, we
think, absolutely unobjectionable,
But tliu parade last Sunday was a special muster which might have been
omitted without harm to any one. It
was certainly unfortunate that our
correspondent advised the mun uot to
parade. The order having been issued,,
it was the duty of the meu to obey,
and the responsibility rested with the
oflicers. Sume peoplu weru so angry
about tho luttor that two of them
(officers in the force) came and niderod
their CotUMlilAN to bu stopped, and
one officer ordered out his advertisement! Thia is a most childish course
to pursue. Surely these men aro old
enough to know lhat a correspondent
may express an opinion which dues not
coincide with the views of the editor,
and that their attempt to boycotte a
newspaper for pnhlishini! the views of
n worthy citizen is extremely contemptible. No pursun can do thut
sort of thing and maintain his self-
respect.

ASSAULT ON W. NORMAN BOLE.
Press Dispatch,]
Viotoria, May 12.—Last night Captain Mardun of Sau Francisco was attacked in the alley-way loading from
the main thoroughfare in this city.
His assailants were two Chinese, one
of whom struck his intended victim
will) a long knifu, The blow was
warded off by n pookot book in his left
breast pocket. Ho was then struck
from behind with n club, after whicli
the men mnde of)'. The causo of attack
is thought to be connected with the
partnership litigation of the Chinese
firm of Kwong Lee & Co. in wliich
Marden is a witness. Nearly at the
same time W, N. Hole, one of the
counsel for dofeusu iu tho siuuu case,
was attacked in Chinatown by D Mongolians, Hu fulled ouo, hipped thu
other, and fled before the third could
get in his wotk.
The Perkins Case.
CONCLUSION OF THE TRIAL.
Many ladies admire gray hair — uu
some other person, Hut few cant tu try
its ulFecta on their own charms. Nor
need they, sluee Ayui's Hair Vigor prevents the hair from turning gray, and
restores gray hair to its original color, lt
cleanses thu scalp, prevents the formation of dandruff, and wonderfully stimulates the growth of the hair.
Ou Saturday our report of thu as-
size court terminated after a few witnesses had been examined in the Perkins perjury case. Tho following is
thu conclusion of tho report:
Mrs, Tretheway, sworn: Keeps a
boarding houso about a mile from
Perkins1 place; after the tiro, when Perkins was talking about it hu said hu
knew his building was on fire after he
got on the road, hut did not liku to
acknowledge it. On tho 17th of Feb.,
purchased a bill of goods amounting
to 8112.1)0 from Perkins; had a conversation with him abuut buying tho balance; was to make mo nu inventory,
whicli ho did; it amounted to $442,
Oo 28i1i Feb., bought ?411 75 worth,
$3.75 of which came from the Blnr'o.
On the 18th Marcli, got 912 worth ont,
of 8442; made other small purchases
for which T havo no bills. Returning
to thu ooliversatlnrt respecting goods,
Perkins said thoro were jtmuo biilua in
the loft of tlie store; they were principally Siwiisli goods of littlo value; said
liu had lost Home goods in thu house,
including a revolver, gun und table;
went to thu ruins and found Perkins
ami bin sun there; purcliasod goods 4
or 5 days before the tlroj saw nn goods
in ihu house thai 1 can remember of:
the goods in storo at this time; last
time but ono when in the store I '
thought there weru not many more
goods than were saved from the fire j
would not give more than S100 for
I hum.
Gabriel Lacroix, sworn: Recollect
the firo; when I got thore ono end ef
thu store wan juat catching; thu duelling was all in Humes; the goods were
all out of Ihu store; did not go near
tho store for fear of powder; saw Pur-
kins at tho firo. Bought goods from
Perkins about 3 weeks before tho fire;
Perkins showed mo tha goods and
wanted me to buy them; suppose bo
had about $200 worth; did not sue any
goods in the loft; valuo of goods about
a week bufure tho tire would be ubou;
S80 or 890.
J. W. Wells, sworn: Built Perkins'
store; it cost in all about 800; besides
thero was a dwelling, nud another old
building which he believed was used
as a chicken house; the store wus
oieled with boards, which weru nailed
from below; it was about 12 fuut wido;
remembered str. Gem stopping at Perkins's plaoe about 3 weeks bufure the
fire; took on three or four boxes, apparently dry uoods; was in thu stoic n
fow weeks beforo the firu; thero were
not many goods there then, probably
under 8100 worth. In cross-examination, witness said he built this store 4
or 5 years ago; building was 14 or 15
fout long; had some trouble with Pur-
kins about pigs and a bull.
Alex. Gruig, sworn, said ho bought
§70.70 worth of goods from Perkins;
hud boon frequently in thu store; never saw any means of getting up tu the
loft. In cross-examination, witness
said he had frequently bought goods
from Perkins; sometimes they were
brought from the store and sometimes
from buildings on the other Bide of the
railway.
Ralph Burton, sworn, said: Bought
about 83 worth of goods from Perkins
tho day beforo thu fire; did not notice
any goods iu tho house; there was
very littlo in the store, probably about
8G0 nr 870 worth.
11. G. McKamey, sworn, said: Was
iu store day before fire; bought ubout
83 worth of goods; would judge there
wns 875 or'$100 worth uf goods thore;
was in the house that day too.
R. 0. Garner, sworn, said: About
the middle of February bought 8 or 9
pound tins of powder; this was all he
had; bought them in the house; Perkins said he was selling off and hadn't
much left; was only in one room in
thu house.
Onus. Gardner, sworn: Was at Perkins' place about the 10th Feb.;
bought 3 pigs, a stove and a clock;
was in the dwelling houso, and went
up stairs; saw no goods there; saw uo
goods downstairs; two days after 1 waB
there and saw Perkins selling tho
tilings out of the store to Lacroix aud
another; he said he wanted to get rid
of thom as ho was going to Sau Francisco; thu furniture was home-made.
In cross-examination, witness said he
saw some blankets in the house and
somu goods in thu storo, but couldn't
tell tho value.
Capt. Millard sworn: Is captain of
thu str. Gem; some timo before the
fire hn took 5 or 0 packages from Perkins' place; brought them down to
Ewon's wharf; have carried packages
in this way twice; tho last time Perkins remarked that tho goods were
worth about 8200: that was on the
21st March; theso goods wero for
Campbell of Savona, and had been
sent down for him; witness still held
them for charges.
Mr. Do vie addressed the jury on bo-
half of tbo defense, saying that thu
defense would be brief and to tho
point. Thu prisoner claimed over
82,000 insurance, and there weru several valuable buildings ou which there
was no insurance at all, and in auy
event tho prisoner has lost a great
deal. The dwelling was valued at
82,500, and the barn about 8700. Tho
explanation of the fire was given by
the Frenchman who referred it t6 a
brush tire very close tu the burn; Mrs.
Trethewey sworo that a man lodging
at her place told her ho was negotiating to rent Perkins'shop, and was to
givo an answer ou Tuesday (the day
aftor tho tire). Being a heavy loser
by tho fire, he took steps to get the
insurance money, and for that purposo
mado the declaration upon which the
charge is founded. Tho learned counsel wont over tho evidence and pointed
out thu chief features of it. If the
prisoner wanted to defraud he would
Dot have put iu a chum for 82,132,
when his insurance policies called for
§4,000. The conditions of the policy
wure such that tho ordinary mode of
settlement would be arbitration,
whereas in thia casu tho mouth of the
prisoner is shut by a criminal charge
preferred against him.
Frank Aylmer, sworn: Knew the
place; there was a dwelling, barn
store, and large storehouse; Perkins
kept his goods some in the store and
some in tho house upstairs; there weru
quantities of goods upstairs; witness
was there iu December, and several
tunes later; was thore early in March
there wure goods stored upstairs then,
(Cross-examined) There were two
small rooms upstairs, but the large
room was usud for a storeroom.
This closed thu case for thu dufeusu.
Mr. Drake, Q.C., then addressed the
jury at some length. After going over
the circumstances and the evidence,
lie contended that the supposition of
fraud was entirely absurd iu view of
the fact that thu loss was greatly iu
excess of Iho mini mentioned in ihe
declaration. He claimed also that tbo
declaration was not a specific claim
for insurance, but muroty an estimate
of  what  he  considered the Insured
proporty worth.
The judge stated that he must lake
the view that the declaration ot 82,132
referred to whole toss and not to hm
on tho part covered by insurance, and
he must so instruct tho jury. Mr.
McColl aaid in that case ho would enter
a nolle prosequi. After a loug discus-
sien between tho lawyers antl judge,
it was decided by the court that this
could 'not bu done without thu express
authority of the attorney-general. Mr.
McColl then said he would ask the
court to instruct tho jury to acquit tho
prisoner, which was done, and the

False Oreek Bridge.
Editor Colombian.— I beg leave to
ie a portion of space iu  your  valuable
paper to deny a foul, scuirilous and premeditated slander which appeared iu the
columns of the Maiidanil Guardian of
the lith ult., viz., that old material wan
being used in the construction of the
new false Creek bridge ou the New
Westminster and Granvlllo road. Tbis
statement is only on a par with many
others to be found iu every issue of that
sheet, uud has us much foundation in
fact; but on account of the reflection it
casts not only on the contractors who are
doing the work and ou those who are
supervising it, but indirectly on the government in power, under whose auspices
this among other much-needed public
improvements are being carried on, I
would stato emphatically that there is no
old or poor material in use ur going to be
used ou this bridge, and the work is being done in a satisfactory manner, according to the specifications. In conclusion, I would advise the editor of tho
Mainland Guardian hereafter to try and
confine himself to facts und not draw so
unmercifully on his altogether too fertile
imagination. Nrmhsis!
Granville, May8, 1885.
Tlie Sunday Parade.
Editor Columbian.-—Thero seeing to
be quite a tempest in a teapot about this
elmrch parade of tlw New Westiniuster
artillery and rifle volunteers. Why the
question of right or wrong is raised, I
for my part cannot comprehend. I
would ask the question, have not these
volunteers taken upon themselves a
solemn obligation, to submit themselves
to all the rules and usages laid down for
military corps? Have wo not a drill
sergeant sent for the express purpose of
teaching thu volunteers what is necessary
to be known, to fit them when called on
to do their duty 1 Volunteers in camp
for drill aro inarched to church. In our
city tlie drill shed is to them ns a camp,
and I think the drill sergeant and commanding oiliccrs deserve the thanks of
our citizens for teaching the volunteers
that part of their duty; and if it was
done ouce every month they would all be
the better for it. Numbers woro iu
church who had not seen the inside of
one for years; and I am sure, unless
their hearts are turned to stone, the scr
mon they heard ut church must do them
some good, if it is only to remind them
of the time they sat with their father
aud mother in the old church at home.
For my part, ib made me feel at home
seeing the military at church. Regularr
are compelled to attend divine service,
and for years 1 have seen it done. It is
certainly new to those who have nevci
seen it at home, and coming to this country young, have not seen ifc here, and
who consequently speak of it aa a desecration of the Sabbath. There is no
doubt it was u parade, but Qod alone
knows how much good may come from
it, Evil there cannot be without citizens are determined to make evil of it.
Not a Voluntkeu.

The rimreli Parade.
Editor Cdi.umwan.—With your permission, I would say a word or two with
respect to a correspondence which appeared iu the last Issuo of tlie COLUMBIAN, under the heading "The Church
Parade." Doubtless the writer of the
correspondence acted on his convictions,
that suoh a parade under the circumstances would amount to a desecration
of the Sabbath, and his hope that young
men who professed to be Christians would
not violate their obligations as such was
simply a logical sequence. I would not
believe that tho writer (in case Kiel had
made his appearance this sido of the
Rockies) would have advised the volunteers not to turn out to tako the murderer, dead or alive; on the contrary, I
believe he would bo th*- first man to
shoulder his musket if need be. On
Saturday morning last 1 was informed
that I was suspected of being tho writer
of the abovo named correspondence and
that I would likely be arrested during
the day and be tried and, I suppose,
executed, for inciting to mutiny. Of
course, after witnessing (ou the previous
evening) the grand display of glittering
swords, gaudy uniforms, and death-deal
ing war implements, 1 felt a little nervous at the prospect of a military execution. Hut allow me to advise those gallant officers who were so anxious for my
arrest on the mere suspicion that I was
the author of the article alluded tu, that
before they order another church parade
they would do well to set a better example of church going themselves and
provo by their lives und conversation
thnt the object of their church parades
is something mere than mere military
display. Church parades are commend*
able for standing armies, or even for
volunteeiv on duty, bnt for officers, some
of whom havo little or no respect for the
Christian religion, to order church p;
rattes iu a place like New Wostml isti
might be productive of some good; and if
it will bu the means uf bringing some
uf the officers under the sound of the
Gospel, 1 for one will nut object.

so we were almost surprised by a number of rebels who crept up through the

distant. They mndo a rush for the guns,
firing anil yelling as they run. Capt.

saw the danger, ran the gun a couple of
yards in front of tlie battery, and opening fire literally mowed the rebels down.

rebels, unable to stand the terrible fire,
returned to thu pits constructed in the

was now as follows: 41st and 15th companies Midland, with Winnipeg battery,
supported by E and C companies of the
90th in the centre, and extending across
to right to where the grenadiers were
supported on the left by Ii company, the
(10th on the right centre by F and A
companies. The A battery occupied the
left centre, afterwards returning to the
right arm. 1 a, in, —As I write Capt.
French with liis scouts and part of the
dismounted. men of A battery are down
in the ravine. Firing is now continued
ou thu left and cenfcvc, but scattered on
the right. After gallant bnt vain efforts
to drive the rifles from the rifle pits,
French's scouts and battery men retired.
At unou the list of killed and wounded
on onr sido was as follows: A battery,
Gunner Phillip, shot through the stomach; Thos. B. Stout, run over by the carriage, not fatal; Chappatier, shut through
both legs, one fractured; dinners Fairbanks and Toohy, also shot in the leg.
Grenadiers', Capt. Mason, No. '2 Company, slight wound in the thigh.

—2 p. m.—The rebels' fire gradually
censed; the troops, however, are still
keeping up a scattered fire aloiu' the

when only a few dropping shots were
heard. No more of our troops hurt.

has been beseiging this place and has
frequently declared himself determined
upon driving the garrison into the Red

is a military ami not a political question.

Tho escape of Geo. E. Applcgarth
from thu Battleford Indians reads like
a page out of a border romance.
Applcgarth was Farm Instructor to
Red Pheasant's baud. On (lie night
of Monday, March 30th, hu was making up his returns with the intention
of going to Battleford next dny. The
Indians of his reserve hud professed
great friendliness for the whites. Like
all Indians they said that since trouble
had risen they might fight, but they
would fight on tho side uf thu whites,
Applegnrth went to bed about midnight At 3 o'clock, in the morning
he heard n tapping at the door. Getting up he went to seo what was tho
matter, when au Indian quickly strode
in aud closed tho door behind him.
He told Applcgarth that the reserve
was rising, and that some of the bucks
who had been to Battleford woro after
him. Almost while ho spoko the door
burst open and eighteen redskins
rushed in. Applegnrth thought his
timo had come, but luckily this was
not the war party. They were eight-
teeu in number, six bucks und twelve
squaws, and the friendly Indinn whispered thnt their mission was to hold
liim until lhe warpers arrived. Apple-
garth roused his wife and siBter-in-law,
a little girl about twelve years old,
and Indian teacher Cunningham, uud
toltl thom to dress. He himself slipped out behind, nnd hitched up his
team, while the friendly Indian engaged the attention of thu visitors.
Like a tiuu woman, the only article of
apparel which .Mis. Applegavth took
with her as the team drove off, be*
sidu-i tho clothes shu wore, wns her
wedding dress. About half-past thre
iu tho morning the pnrty of four set
out on their meu for lifu to Swift Our*
runt, 200 miles distant. They had
got five ui Ies nwny when ihu whilllo-
trec broke. Applegnrth had to walk
two miles back in get a rail to make u

They hud now struck the tnul, which

drove all dny, and Inwards nightfall
caught sight of the Indians aonlu.
This time they though! il wns ull up
with them. The Indians were certainly following them, nml wero possibly waiting till nightfall to kill them.
All Applegnrth could do was to tell his
wife he would ask thein to mnke short
work of thu business. Ilia wife and
the little girl cried a little, but kept
Up their courage woll. Thuy bad nn

thu morning of Wednesday they rested
for a ample of hours. The horses
were nearly exhausted. But a little
before morning they were put togeiher
again nnd driven on, und the forenoon
of Thursday they came up with Judge
who bud left Battleford the previous
Sunday. They arrived at Swift Current ou Monday Innt'lilllg, and thu
majority of the party went eust on
Tuesday. It muy be of interest to
know thnt thu Indians who weru bent
on killing Applcgarth were those whose
rations bad been stopped by him until they consented tu work. Thus
ended a (light which undoubtedly is

But it was unly the sudden appearance of Harry which put an cud to
this painful scene. Ho gathered his

out of the room, witli a severity and

Hurry shook his head,
"Will you come with ino to the

She bad not the courage or the presence of mind to any no. Sho went
down-stairs with him, where tho lamps
wore lighted again, and out to tho gate
—the same hour, the sumo ntmosphcro
as last night. Was it only Inst night
that all had happened ' Sbo could have
turned and lied, iu thu tremor, tho
horror, of the recollection. Just thero
shu lay at Catherine's feot. Just thero
Cathorino liad stood and listened.
Hester stood her ground like a mar

so, and that it would not bo possible
to avoid the place mado so bitter by
rocullocliun. Harry did not know how
to aponk. Hu shifted uneasily from
one foot fo another, "He has been
traced to town; he go; in at tbu junction, not here. Ho reached London
this moriiiiiK, very early—with a lady
"With tiltuiy!'1
Hester had expected a great shock,
but thu iiBtonishmeut of this took its
sting away.

He had never so asserted himself in
nil Ids life before. Thoy hurried her
out between them to the cab, much
ugainst Ellen's will, who wanted explanations and to know if it was true
that Aunt Catherine couldn't, couldn't
if she would; and then told them,
sobbing, that if it was so, none of
them could afford to pay for a cab,
and why, why, should ruined people

Hestor to her in a voice of exhaustion.
"I think," she snid, "it has done me
no harm: Anything is better than
that which-is boluiid. Aud I must
do uuthiiig to luirt myself beforo I a-
iiniritiw. Was not Harry there? Ho
may liiive aoiuothing to tell me. Lot
him come iu and say it to you, Von
aru quick-wittuil, and you will understand; and, if it is Worth writing,
write it down. I will not tuka any
jmrt. I will keep still here. If it
rbusoa mo, so much llm botter, Jf
not, you will listen for mo with your
young uara and forget nothing, I
must aivii myself, you sen, for lo-nior-
row,"
"I will forget uothinj;," Heater aaid,
Catherine Bihile-d faintly, with hor
oyea closed.
"I Imd  thought  "f   itiiiking  you

you iiru a Vernon, foo. Bond your
mind to it. Think tif nothing but tho

"I will," said Hester, with solum-
uity, ns if shu weru pronouncing ihu
words before a judyu.
Catherino look hold of her dress
when she was going away.
"One tiling,'' she said. "I think
you and I liavo hated each other bu-
cause wu are meant to love each othor,
child."
"I think 1 have nlwnys done both,"
Baid Hester.
Tho faint sound that broko through
tho stillness was not liku Catherine's
laugh. Sho patted tho girl's arm softly with her hand. Tlieir amity was
too new to bear caresses.
"Now go and do your work for your
honor and mine,'1 shu snid.
It appeared thnt Harry hnd much to
say. It was strango to havo to sny it
all to thu ynung and eager liatnor, her
eyes glowing with interest and anxiety,
who was not content with any ono
statement, but questioned nud investigated till sho had brought out every
point of meanini;, while the real authority aat by silent, hor eyos closed,
her hands clasped, liko au image of
repose, Both tho young people kopt
their eyes upon her. There wns nut a
movement which Hester did not watch,
while sho exerted her faculties to comprehend everything that Hnrry told
her, and put down everything that
seemed nt all important. Tho impulse
carried her over lior own share of tho
individual misery. Everything else
disappeared beforo tho paramount importance of tliis. When all that Harry
had to say was said, there arose a
silonco betweon thom which Imd tho
oUuct which nothing beforo Imd of

whom Mrs. John had found m kind,
but who had not alwaya been kind,

eyes of tender rospect and nwo.
"I thought once," said Hostor, in a
hush of subdued fooling, "thnt sho

"Alif" said Harry, who had a littlo
more experience, "it is seldom that

I want to toll you something moro if

Hester smiled.
"Is thero anything that can upset

The records of tlio next few daya
were agitated and full of excitement.
Day after day Catherine spent nt tho
hunk, immersed iu calculations and
consultations with every ouo wlm could
throw llio slintitesit light upon tliu matter. Everything oozed out by degrees;
and it was said now that Edward was
beiuo hunted down by detectivoB, mnv
that ho hud escaped altogether, now
that his defalcations woro so tremendous that nothing but absolute ruin
was possible for Vernon's, now that
tliere wns enough left to mnko a fight
upon if only tlie creditors would be
merciful nud give timu nnd have patience. Tho usual panic with wliich
audi news is received was somehow
lomporod in this chsd, It was thought
iu tlio district tlint Catherine Vernon
wna enormously rich, and independent
"f the bunk; and when it wna known
tlmt she had not abandoned it, but iu
her old ago had come back, and was iu
tho ollice every day struggling to retrieve allaim, there waa nobody, Hlmrt
of the financial authorities of tho
place, who did not belies thai all was
aftfo,
Calhcriiio Vernon would not sen any
harm come to the bank; Catherine
Vernon would two everybody paid.
This |jo]iular faith held up with a certainty of obstinate preposessiou which
wns worth ho muoh solid capital to thu
tottering houao. Oat hot! 110 herself
placed everything she had in thu world
in the common alock. .She it was who
took thu lend in all the discussions.
Shu rojeclud thu provisions for her
own comfort which everybody concerned was anxious to make. The prevailing feeling among all who had any
power was, at first, that tlio re-oatab-
lisliment of tho whole concern was
hopeless, but that enough might bu
saved out of tlio wreck to euablu Catherine to end hor days in peaco. To
this she opposed a dutoriniiicd negative, She would havu no nrrangumeiit
made on her behalf. "Do you think
I want,'' shu cried, "to end my days in
poaoo? On tho contrary, I nm ready
to dio lighting, rather than ancrilice
tho place my minor lived nnd died in,
and liis father before him. Dun't
spoak of peace to mo,"
