Katurdiiy Morning, Fell. 'tn.  188ft.
Scramble for Africa.
In the last number of tlie Uritish
Trade Journal (London) .we find the
following article from the pen' of
West African trader: "To ono who
has speut ten years of his life on tlio
West African Coast the proceedings
of   tlie Berlin Conference appear
somewhat    farcial.     One    would
imagine from the speeches that are
mnde that European commerce with
the West Coast is of gigantic proportions, and that the country which
succeeds in securing the largest slice
of  territory for   its own trading
operations is likely to find iv sort of
El Dorado, ns well ns a very important outlet for its manufactured
'goods.   No doubt the latter is the
case to some extent, but if it is supposed that trade with Wost Africa
may be developed to such an extent
as to immediately do away with the
industrial depression which oxists
in  England, in Germany, or elsewhere, no greater mistake cau possibly be imagined,   I am acquainted
with something like 3,000 miles of
the West African Coast line, and I
hnve no hesitation iu affirming that
ns yet the Dark Continent remains
to ■ all intents nnd purposes a terra
incognita.   You may do a bartering
business on the const, and  at tho
mouths of the great rivers, but until
you  penetrate the interior no adequate idea of the resources of the
country and of its commercial possibilities   will    ever   be   obtained.
Something has, no doubt, beeu accomplished on the Niger and on the
Congo, but it is absolutely unimportant compared with tho gigantic
task which   still   lies,'before geographical and commercial explorers
alike.    As regards our own colonies
on tlie West African Coast, things
are not so lively ns to make us wish
for more territory.   Take the Gold
Coast, for instance.   The resources
of the district aro unbounded, but
there are ninny difficulties iu the
way of tlieir development.    Palm
oil, palm kernels, monkey skins, and
gold dust ara only a few of the products that may be exported, while
the timber supplies in the interior
aro simply enormous.   This latter
source of wealth howover, will remain absolutely dormant until the
steamship   companies roduce their
freights. I have seen- trees towering
as high as 120 feet.   Tliese would
be most valuable if thoy could only
be obtained   for commercial   purposes.':   Then the mining industry
of the colony might be developed
-enormously, but for the fact thnt
there are no roads into the intorior.
The government, indeed, hns hitherto done absolutely nothing to assist
in the construction of tramways or
railways.    On mining machinery,
on which a 4 por cent, ad valorem
duty is. charged, a drawback is supposed to be given.   This is uot unfair, seeing that the machinary is
imported with a view of developing
the resources of the colony, and that
it hns to be curried piece by piece
through many miles of donse jungle.
Will it be believed, however, that
there is tho greatest difficulty in recovering this drawback? Six mouths
after ono chums it a notice is often
sent to the oflect that tlie application is "irregular," and that the
form must be amended,    Twelvo
months   later, when probably the
mining  engineer  has returned to
England, he receives a notice that
the amount of the drawback is lying
to his credit at Accra,   Tho fact is,
the dresent administration at the
Gold Coast will compare very favorably with that to be found in any
Frenoh colony,  Officialism and red
tapism stand first and foremost in
every matter, and, unless you take
tho law into your own hands, the
chances are altogether against you.
There are three large houses on tho
Gold Coast iu which the trade of
the distriot is chiefly centred. Thoy,
of course, tell the public that thoir
profits are not large, but it strikes
me that this is not a fair representation of facta.   In my own caso, I
recently took a small quantity of
goods up to the gold-mines at Tac-
. quah, and, notwithstanding the difficulties of carriage and the heavy
expenses  incurred   all   along  tho
route, I cleared over 100 por cent,
upon the transaction.   River carnage into the intorior would be most
desirable, but there are two things
tp contend against.    Iu tho first
place, white men are afraid of the
climate; and in tho second place,
the natives are thoroughly lazy and
indifferent to commercial enterprise
of any sort.   This is uot surprising
when it is remembered Mist they

NUMBER 17
can live for nothing on tho plantains, which grow every wliere, while
a day's washing in any of tho rivers
will provide them with sufficient
i tiie at [ gold to pay for all the tobacco nnd
spirits- they may require to keep
them ■ comfortably intoxicated for a
month, . At Sierra Leone the natives are even more lazy thnn on
the Gold Const. The place produced
absolutely   nothing  until   Britisli
Sherboro was incorporated with it,
and, but for this, the trade of Sierra
Leone would still bo very small.
Its'administration is,.in many respects, remarkable.   If you oall a
man a "nigger" you mny be fined
hi for using bad language. • A "colored gentleman" is the phrase which
the law holds you ought to have
employed.   As to the trade of the
Niger, it was only reasonable-tjt-it
this district should bo practically
exeluded from /the Berlin,Conference.    British enterprise Jin's done
much here, in spite of great difficulties, which have prevailed on every
hand.   The products of the district
are   innumerable.     They  include
ivory, palm kernels, palm oil, skins,
shea   butter  (a   vegetable  grense
which, it is said, would make the
fortune  of  any   hair-dressor who
offered it to the public as a hair-
restorer), cotton and other articles.
There are a few mercantile houses
on the rivers which form the mouths
of the Niger, while the trading stations of tho National African Company are pretty numerous.   As to
the Congo, I have not much personal
experience, but trndo will undoubtedly be benefitted if tho flag of the
International Association is generally recognized.   It is perfectly right
to prohibit the importation of. spirits
if you can do so, but I fear that
there will bo some difficulty iu doing
this.    Many Dutch   and   German
houses have for yeurs past done a
roaring  trade  in   their very vile
liquors, and they, as well ns the
natives, who are very fond of these
spirits, would scarcely liko to soe
tho trade swept away at a stroke of
tho pen.    Personally, whilo I have
every respect for Mr. Stanley's enterprise, I cannot help remarking
that he is not a trader himself, and
that, until our business men themselves move in the direction of extended commerce with tho Congo,
vory littlo will be done.   As to tlio
Portuguese and Spaniards, (hoy profess to have control over certain
portions of the West African Const, |
but it is more or less a pretence.'
In some instances their government
, is a mere matter of form, and no
protection of any sort is aftprdsit to
the foreign trader.    The French,
more than any other nation, have,
in  my opinion,  made progress in
colonizing the Dark Continent.   I
do not, of course, allude to Algeria,
but to their efforts in Sencganibia.
A railway is now boing made all the
way to Timbuctoo, with the result
that the trade of a vast area will be
tapped aud brought down to tlie
Atlantic ports.   At Sierra Leone
the necessity for a railway to Timbuctoo has often been urged, but
nothing has been done, and probably
nothing will   be  done.   There
some excuse, certainly, owing to the
tin heal thi ness of the climate, but
one cannot but feel that British interests are too lightly considered.
Until some means are taken to tap
the trade of the interior, tlie adjoining French ports bf Assinee and
Grand Bnssam will still, mid tlieir
chief occupation iu smuggling arms
and  bad gin in Ashantee territory.
We have heard a great deal lately
about the German  annexation of
Angra Pequena and the Cameroons.
Of the former I know nothing, but
of the latter I would make this remark, that Germany is thoroughly
welcome to the territory she hns
annexed.   It is by no means the
most agreeable spot from a climatic
point of view, aud tho natives can
scarcely be described as of a genial
disposition.   Our commerce oii the
Niger will be interfered with in no
degree, whatever, and if Germany
can succeed iu developing an inland
trade, there is no reason why we
should be at all jealous.   Prince
Bismarck will find that West African colonization is not quito so easy
as he seems inclined to imagine, and
in this respect the experience of
British ami othor traders on the
coast will but receivo confirmation.
From whnt I have already said it
will be seen that I do not regard
French or German annexation on
the West African Coast with unmitigated horror.   On the contrary,
I do not think wo should sutler if
they raised their flags over other
portions of the const.   But what
they,   in   common   with   Knglish
traders, havo omitted to do—except
perhaps in the cases of tho Niger
and the Congo—is to develop trade
with the inland centres.   Although
we know that the interior districts
possess   enormous  wealth,   people
scetii still content to go ou upon the
old lines—that is, buying from the
coast' natives, who are not the producers, but merely the collectors of
produce, who undertake the duties
of middle-men — although trading
expeditions inland would meet with
extraordinary success. Until a littlo
more enorgy is shown, I, for one, regard such gatherings as the Berlin
Conference with absolute indifference, because our West African interests maybe considered as by no
means so important ns has been suggested iu certain quarters.   They
might bo greater, it is true, but
they nover will be whilo we are
content to let things unconcernedly
drift on." * '

On tlio firat ilivisiou of tliu present session the Ontario government lirul a majority of 1;), with
.ono supporter absent. Tho vote
was on a party question. Last session the majority wns 12. There
seems to he no reason to doubt tliat
the government will be quito able
to hold its own to the end of this
parliament at least.
Wo are glad to observe that lhe
legislature has passed a Ohinese restriction aet almost identical with
the one passed last session and disallowed by the federal govornment,
It remains to be seen whether the
Ottawa government aud house will
bo content to accept the absurd and
superficial report of the Chinese
commission or the expressed opinion
of the British Columbia legislature!
On the Oth inst. the caso of Bunt:
iug, Sleek, Wilkinson and Kirkland, for attempting to bribe certain
members of the Ontario legislature,
came up for argument before the
courts.- Ttwill be remembered that
these men, in April last, wore indicted by the grand jury, hut demurred against the indictment
This demurrer hns been overruled,
the conspirators hnve entered it plea
of not guilty, and the case, it is
believed, will lie tried at the spring
assizes.
The Chinese Commission.
If the synopsis of the Chinese
commission's report published among
our telegrams be correct, it is time
this province began to consider
what measures it may must judiciously adopt for its own protection.
We need hardly say that the Chinese commissioners failed entirely
to perforin the functions of their
otlice in this province with even
decent formality. They sat less
than hnlf a day on the mainland,
and refused to. hear the evidence
which liad lieen gathered for them
' at Nanaimo. Now they tell us
that the Chinese hit necessary to
the development of the country,
and that the immigration of these
people should not be interfered
with! Do tliese commissioners know
more about the requirements of the
country than 2-1 members of the
local legislature who have stood up
and deinnnded restriction to Chinese immigration 1 Are they more
concerned about our progress and
the development of our industries
than wc are ourselves " By what
process of reasoning or mental jugglery could they arrive at a conclusion so propostrous and so widely
nt variance with well-known facts?
Illiu-k and While.
Color blindness or optical illusion
may make white appear black and
black wliite. A plea in favor of
the Coal Harbor squatters, however,
could scarcely be successfully hung
upon this peg. Tlie public lands of
Goal Harbor no doubt seemed green
and inviting in prospect of tbe location of the railway terminus at
that poiut,but neither colorblindness nor optica] delusion oould justify the contradictory evidence given
lief ore the oommittee We propose
now to put together some of this
remarkable evidence by way of comparison aud contrast, and iu doing
so we shall confine ourselves chiefly
or entirely to the ca.se of Mr. Greer
and Mr. McTiernan. lu this evidence is contained most of that
which relates to I lie charge of perjury and forgery of which a gnnd
deal hns been hoard. In hU evidence before the committee Mr.
Greer said: "Tlie Indian agent (Mr.
McTiernan) told me the Indians
had a title. There hud been white
men ejected by the fntlinu agont,
He said lie would put ofl" airy person who camo there to live. I
bought from the Indian uqeiil. He
told ine he would not allow any person to interfere with me. I claim
that one-half of it (the lot) wns iu
continuous possessory right for over
20 years by the Indians. Mr, Mc*
Tiernan told me to purchase tho
rights of tho two Indians other than
Charlie and Jim. Mr, McTiernan
told me that if nny one trespassed
on the lands of thoso Indians ho
would have them arrested. Agent,
Mr. McTiernnn, asked Charlie, tho
chief, if he would sell his hind.
They (these Indians) were never
plucod on a reserve, and Mr. Mc-
Tiernau told mo so." Against theso
very positive statements we have
statements equally positive from
Mr. McTiernan, the Indian agent.
He says: "I told Grout* that tlie
Indian had no titlo or interest iu
the place ho lived on, but if he
wanted to sell liis improvements he
might do so. At the time he (Charlie), came to me nt my place lie
told Greer, ''it is only my house, my
fence, my potatoes, my stove, and
my trees," and these things wero
enumerated in the document I witnessed. Greer said he did not want
any land, as he knew tho Indian
had no title to it, but if be purchased the improvements it would
assist him to buy the laud from tho
government I am positive, because if ho wrote one. word about
lnnd in tho body of the document
I would not sign it. Charlie has
lived .there only MJ- years.' I nm
positive it is not more than I years.
I never told Greer that I would
hnve any one arrested tliat trespassed on the Indiuns' land. I
never told Greer to. purchaso the
rights of any Indians, either Charlie or any others. I never told
Greer thnt tliese Indians were not
placed on a reservation." There
oould hardly be a more flat contradiction than this. It will be perceived, nlso, that many of the
points nro vital to the claim of Mr.
Greer. In his claim he says: "I
bought all the right, title and interest, through Mr. McTiernan, Indian agent, belonging to i Indians.
I bought.tho laud and improvement*
from' Uritish subjects being in possessory and continued occupation
for 20 years aud under the protection of the .Dominion of Canada,
nnd disposed of through their
agent." It will be seen how persistently Mr. Greer works in the
name aud otlice of Mr, McTiernan
so as to give ofiicial status to his
claim, while Mr. McTiernan em
phatioally denies that he acted in
his ollicial capacity at all, or that he
made any of the statements attributed to him by the claimant.
Now, with respect to the conveyance which Mr. Greer produced as
the basis of his chum. This conveyance expressly carries all the
"rights, title, interest in or to that
or those parcel or parcels of land,"
and it is made "through P. McTiernan, Indian agent," and signed
by him as witness. Mr. McTiernan positively swore that he never
signed that document or nny one
like it. He declares that in the
transaction he guarded most carefully against anything that might
bear tho appearance of conveying a
title in the lnnd. He told Greer
the Indian hnd no title, and the
Indian told him the same thing.
Both the Indian and Mr, McTiernan swore that the conveyance wus
written by Greer in their presence.
When shown the conveyance produced by Greet . the Indian
said, "1 never .signed that*, paper.
The paper I signed was one-fourth
the size of a sheet of foolscap. I
only signed one paper. Tliere were
no senls on it." Mr. McTiernan
stated that when the transaction
took placo Greer bad with him an
agreement in wliich his name appeared, but he refused to sign it and
Greer wrote out another wlvffth lio
did sign as witness. The case seems
to be of sufficient importance to
call for an investigation, and we
liope the matter will be taken up
by the house and prosecuted vigorously. It is not right that forgery
md conspiracy such as this seems
to be should escapo punishment,.
A New Invention.
An invention for applying tlio tele-
graph to the thermometer promises n
gnnd deal ni ii no fulness. The thermometers nm made of metal and their

Nova Scotun Gold Minks.—Nova
Scotia ii not generally regarded as a
gold-producing country, yet since tho
discovery of gold in 1800, it is aaid, ita
mines have produced over 98,000,000
worth of bullion. The mines are loused
for twenty-one years with privilege of
renewal, on royalty of two per cont on
the gross yield, Striot account is kept
by the Mines Offloe with every mine in
operation and every person holding ti
prospecting license, And. from the'o
records it appears that since 1800 for
every day's work expended in the gold
.fields; both for mining nnd prospecting, an amount of bullion has been
produced equal to $2.50 per duy per
man, counting wages at an average of
$1.30 per day, Tlio gold is of n v«5ry
fine quality, being worth ou nn average uver 910,86 per ounce, and frequently 8-0 Thu niirifaroun rock is
freo milling und yields from $5 to 9300
per ton. Materials for working the
mines are very choap. Wood averages
11.75 per curd, lumber #0 per thou-
■and, and coal 92,50 per ton.

Steam to Australia.— A telegram
from Ottawa, of Fob. 12th conveys.thia
information; "A return wna laid on
the table of tlio Iioubo by the Finance
Minister to dny, showing that tbe government is now in commuuifjution.with
tho Austmlijui colonies with'a viow of
establishing n line of steamers connecting with Victoria, B.C., und tlm Canadian Pacific to England. This was
brought about through Congress refusing to pay its share to a lino of steamers of the Pacifio Mail Company run
hing between San Francisco and Sydney, und which .wore Btappod last Do-
comber. Two years ago a roaolution
was pussud by tho Australian Parliament stopping its subsidy if tho American Congress did uot pay its share.
The last session uf Congress mado no
provision to supplement thu subsidy,
and thcreforo tho resolution of the
Australian parliament is now in forco.

The Hospital Congest.—The con
cert in aid of tho Royal Columbian
Hospital camo off ns announced last
Wednesday night, and was completely
successful. Tha Drill Shod was filled
with a very roapetitablo audience who
seemed thoroughly to enjoy tho enter
tainment, which is pronounced ouo of
tho best of tho season. .Tho pro-
gramma wus opened hy instrumental
music from the Happy Hottentots,who
likewise introduced the second part.
The othor instrumental music consisted
of n cornet nolo by Mr. Darcy, which
was splendidly played, n pianoforte
solo by Mrs. Peele, and a quartette by
members of tho Hyack bund. Tho
vocal music presented considerable variety, nnd wns all good. Tho vocul
solos wore: "Cleansing Fires," by Mr.
Henderson; "To tho Ferry" by Miss
Sutherland ; " Impatience," by Miss
McBrido ; "Ehren on tlio Rhine," by
Mr. Riukmun; "Gates of the West,"
hy Mrs. Moreshy ; a character song by
Mr. Keary ; a quartette by Mrs. Peele,
Miss McBrido, Mr. Kciiry, and Mr.
Hickman ; and duuts by Miss Sutherland and Mr. Henderson, und Miss
McBrido and Mr. Keary. The accompaniments wore played by Mrs. Peole,
Miss DoBeck, Mr. Hickman, and Mr.
Morey. Wo havo not learned---*lint
tho proceeds nre, but they must have
beon quito large.
Caqkd at Last.--About four years
ago a half-breed named John Calder wns
found duad undor the second bridge on
Edinburgh struct. Not long ago constable Miller, of Granville, obtained
information on tho strength of which
ho arrestod nn Indian named Charlie
Alexis, nn suspicion of having committed this murder. Alexis was taken bo
fore.Mr. W. D. Ferris, J. P., yesterday. An Indian woman named Mary
testified that sho saw the prisoner
strike Calder with a stick, and she
thought he hnd boon killed. It seems
that this woman and her son Johnny
Butler und tho prisoner were sitting on
the bridge drinking, when Calder came
nlong and then the prisoner jumped
on him, killed him, robbed him, and
thrust tho body undor tho bridge.
Tommy, an Indian now in the jail, testified that about three years ago tho
prisoner was serving a torm in the gaol
and was put iutb thu sumo cell with
him. One night Tommy Baid, "I won
dor who killed the half-breed ?" Tho
prisoner replied, "I did," nnd then ho
described minutely how lie accomplished the murder. Johnny Butlor, anothor half-breed who was present at the
murder, told a story which corroborated the one told in goal hy the prisoner
himself. Alexis was committed to
stand his trial for wilful murder, und
Butler wus committed as an accessory-

Editor Columbia**.—On rending the

wish to know of Ids wliercnbouts. Is ho

Mr. Main's Version.
Kiiitob Columbian.—I have just scon
a communication published in yourpaper
of the Utli inst., bearing tl.e title of
"Singular proceedings" and signed "Elector." Elector, hy his statement of half
facts, has shown a want of .principle
which he affects to condemn iu others.
On the day of nomination I proposed
Mr, Swctt for Ward No. 1. 1 may observe that there were present of the
doctors of the ward only two (Mr. Rich
and myself), and I might have been'
elected by acclamation had I so chosen.
Owing to a disqualification on the part of
Mr. Swett a meeting was called hy the
Council on the 7th. At that meeting
Mr. Rich presented u petition signed by
a majority of one out of tlie electors in
tho ward,.praying for tho return of Mr.
T. E. Ladner. Out of ■ the number of
the signers of that petition two have
openly stated that they would never
have done bo, had they known that anyone else woultl be forthcoming. If I
recollect rightly there were no farmers
who signed that petition, but merely
residents round the landing, perhaps
having littlo hatchets of their own to
grind. With regard to tho rubbish about
a loan by-law I may say that I feol littlo
disposed at present to favor nny bylaw
for raising n loan, when 1 consider the
fuct that Ward No. 1 recoived not one
cout of benefit out of the former loan.
With -the publication of tho above facts
yonr "Elector" suffers "tho usual fate of
those who stab in tho dark, Yours respectfully, Georus B, Maim.

The Coal Harbor Extension.
In consequence of lack of space, wo
must content ourselves with giving
only n fow of tho speeches delivered iu
tho houso on tho government scheme
to extend the C. P. It. to Coal Harbor,
Wo shall give them tui reported by the
Colonist, and in the order in which
they were delivered :
Hon. Mr. Robson suid lie could not
give n silent voto upon n question of
such profound importance. Tho Canadian Pucitic railway had always boon
regarded as the keystone, bo to speak,
of confederation. Indeed that stupendous work might well bo regarded as
tho grandest triumph of tho age. It
might bo said, with its lino of steamships on tho two groat oceans, to com*
pass a hemisphere, grasping tho Orient
ni tho oue hand und the Occident iu
tho othor ; it wns nn achievement of
which Canada, and, indeed, Great
Britain, might well feel proud.
Through it nur nation would bo placed
in a position uf great advantage, as tbo
Canadian Pacific railway, with its
ocean lines, must become the great
highway of tho nations, Tho hon, the
premier, in speaking of the resolution
the othor day, had pointed out tho
great advantages this line would enjoy
us tho channel for tho immense tea
trade betweon Asia and Europe, and
that gentleman had shown complete
mastery of the subject. But, though
doubtless nu_ important item, tea was
not the only trade destined to pass
over the lino. 'Looking at the matter
moro particularly from a provincial
point of view, tho hon. gentleman must
soo what vast markets would bo opened
up beyond the Paeifio through tho instrumentality of this stupendous land
and ocean highway. Columbia, while
receiving in her lap the wealth of Asia
and Australia, would send out to the
peoples beyond tho seas her lumber
and coal,, and, abovo all, tho product of
her wondrous sea farms, besides many
minor productions, while from tire
"great granery of tho world" (as our
Amorican neighbors themselves have
admitted it to be) beyond the Rockies
would he sent uut brcadstufls to feed
the millions in exchange far tho wealth
of Asia. He bolioved pooplo generally
had a very inadequate conception of
tho wondrous development and wealth
nil this involved for Columbia, which,
from ita geographical position, climate
attractions, und. varied and immense
resources, would possess an immense
advantage over every other part of the
Dominion. Then, look at the irresiat-
ablo power possessed in our great coal
stores,. Coal was the great power which
would compel commerce to come nud
bow at Columbia's feot. The hon.
gentleman proceeded to invito attention
to the bargain which the house waB
invited to endorse. In tho terms of
confederation we had willingly given a
grant of 25,000' ncres n mile towards
the construction of the railway, nud an
equal area hud been given in thu case
of tho Island railway. But what was
the country now called upou to contribute towards continuing ihe great
national highway down to its true nnd
final terminus on English Bay f Why,
Mr. Speaker, just six thousand acres,
being exactly at the rato of 272 acrea a
milo for the extention. And this paltry'
six thousand acros constituted a pot-lion
of the .belt Columbia had cheerfully
agreed' to convey to Canada in constructing the railway down to thu English Bay; but it tfns only six thouaand
of ttio naif million and more that wo
had originally agreed to givo. Confining consideration to tho twonty odd
thousand ncres held by the Crown on
tho peninsula between Burrard Inlot
and the Fraser river, it would bo found
that the government were retaining
fully two-thirds. It haa been said, in
opposition, that the government wore
giving the company till tho really valuable land and only retaining outside
lauds of comparatively little value; but
such was not at all the faol. The laud
retained by the government comprised
more than two:thirds uf thu -frontago,
and tho very hest'uf tho frontage, on
Burrard Inlet nud English Bay. Taking as a basis of calculation tlio actual
prico received at tbo sale of Hastings
town lots, held before any definite arrangement for extension had been
nude, it would bo found that the three
thousnnd acres fronting on these harbors, retained by tho government,
would bu worth ono million fivo hundred thousand. It would not bo too
much to expect that tbe lands fronting
oii these grout harbors will, onuu the
question is finally settled aud tho extention and terminal works fairly undor way, bring at least twice as much
as did tho Hastings lots lust year; and
nt that rato three thousand aores nf tho
fourteen thousnnd reserved by the government might ba expocted to yield
three millions. Hu had no. hesitation
in saying that, with tliu great railway
and ocean scheme carried out successfully, the lands rutuiued by thu govovli"
ment on thu peninsula nlonu would, if
properly handled, during,thu next four
iv live years, yield four or fivo millions
if revenue. When it was rente in be rod
that these lands would own their immense value solely to tho extension of
tho railway,"he could not sou 1 niw it
was possible for any unprejudiced per-
son to deny that the government had
succeeded in making nn exceptionally
good bargain—-one which would create
a sourco of future revenue tlutf would
euablo whatever government might be
iu power to carry on public works for
many yenrs to como without increasing
taxation or adding to the publio debt.
But thero wns a higher and more patriotic view to take of the subject, nnd
ho hoped the houso and the country
would rise to that view. Tho Dominion
government bad stopped short at Port
Moody—not because it was a suitable
terminus, but because, as-Sir Charles
Tupper oxpreBBod if, thoy had too
heavy a load to carry, and bo they
dumped it down ut the first tidul wuter
reached, thereby fulfilling the letter of
tho agreement. Now surely it was the
duty of Columbia to assist in extending this grant national highway to a
superior terminus, whoro it could com-'
pete, with grenter advantage and success, against rival foreign lines. This
would be our duty, even at conBider-
ablo sacrifice; but, aa hnd already been
shown, the government had devised
and arranged n Bchome whereby Columbia could do this, and, at the samo
time, put millions in her pocket.
Thoso tilings boing so, ho would appeal to hon. members ou both sides of
the house to rise above party tics nud
personal likes uud dislikes, nnd cast
their votes in favor of the resolution,
PERSONAL EXPLANATION.
Tho Hon. Mr. Kobson Bald that before taking his Beat he would ask the
indulgence of the Iioubo in order that
he might make a personal explanation;
He remembered with prido having
been among the tirst advocates of confederation, and it had been hia privilege to take an active part in formulating the terms upon which this province entered the Dominion. From
the time of union he bad, both by tonguo and pen, advocated English Buy
and Coal Harbor as the only true una
proper terminus of the Canadian Pacific railway, and during the past eight
or nine years ho bad boen investing
all the money he could spare at
thut pluce. Ho had not advocated that
as the terminus because his money was
invested thete; but he had invested because ho felt confident that would bo
the terminus. -Commencingat 830 an
acre he had continued to invest until
he had paid na high as six hundred
dollars au acre. But what ho desired
more particularly to say was that every
foot of land ho owned thero had been
paid for fairly and abovo board, and
not a rood of it had ho acquired, directly or indirectly, from tho Crown.
He did not, he was sorry to say, own
noarlv ns much land as it was sought
to make the public beliovo ; bnt what
he did own bo had paid for with hard-
earned money, Ho had not laid back
until tho terminus question waB settled and then tried to steal it from the
Crown, or in any way uso his position
in either house or govemment for the
purpose of securing land on terms not
suitable to others. He would tuko the
opportunity of stating furthor that ho
did not own nny interest in what waa
known aa the "Hastings Mill property," as he felt thut he might be in n
false position in respect to nny dealings liable to arise between the owners
and the government, about extension
of lease. Thu position appeared to ba
taken by some that he, us a member of
the houso or government, had no right
to assist in any scheme for extending
the railway to English Bay because he
owned land tliere. Now according to
that theory, nono but those known us
"carpet-baggers' Bhould he in the houso
or iu the cabinet. The question, he
contended, was not ono of whom) land
wuuld be appreciated or depreciated m
value; but, would the scheme be iii the
public inter-att i It was an absurd and
monstrous doctrine that, because he
happened to have become honestly possessed of land at the truo terminus,
therefore the great national highway of
which he had been speaking must stop
shortCat air inferior and altogether unsuitable place, und this stupendous on
terpriso thereby be placed at a great
disadvantage, whilo the province wuuld
lose tho advantage of a source of revenue such as haa been described. He
stood ou tho floor of the house to-day
tho beat abused man in the country ;
uud for what 7 Because his foresight
and judgment had been proved to be
right ; because, in short, hu committed the unpardonable crime of success.
He must apologize for having occupied
tho time of the house with statements
so personal; but he felt it due to the
country, tho houao, his hon. colleagues
uud himself to make the explanation.

Kokti, Feb, Ji.—A dispatch from
Abu Klea says: "General Butler, who
arrived hero the 13th from (iubat, commenced at noun the loth systematic
shelling of the Arab lines. Two well*
directed shots did the enemy great damage, oue exploding among a group engaged iu placing a howitzer on the summit of a hill east of our fort, aud the
other removing tho, whole gun carriage.
Lord Borcsfordalso did the uticuiy great
Injury with Gardner gum. The houora
of tho duy fell to Major Wardrop, who,
with thirteen men, stole cautiously round
the enemy's right, aud found that they
had only a few hundred riflemen on tbo
hills, mid no reserve spearmen. Ward-
rop'a men, keeping out of Bight, sent volleys ut a range of 800 yards cm-the euu-
niy's flank. Leaving ono mnn nt tbis
point, to continue firing, ha took the
twelve others, and quickly as possible
pursued the same tactics at three successive hills, giving the Arabs nn impression
that fresh bodies of British troops wore
arriving. El Mahdi's forces became
panic-stricken, ceased firing nml decamped toward Metenineb, takmg their guus
and iloud and wounded with them. A

at St, Petersburg a coinmineqtte from De
Glers, Russian minister of foreign affairs.
It slates that no advance of Russian
troops toward the Afghan frontier has
been authorized by the government and
that the troops will be withdrawn to the

increasing the earthworks about Massowah and placing torpedoes in the harbor.
Chicago, Feb. 23.—Captain Bedford

they will be open to publio inspection by
visitors and be carefully preserved,
Lonuon, Feb. 23.-A Fenian dyna-
miters congress'waa held in Paris to-day.
Eleven members were present, each being
armed with a revolver. Violent speeches
were mode amidst cries of "Down with
England," and resolutions were passed
to create explosions in all towns and villages throughout England. Several delegates pleaded in favor of innocent women
and children, declaring that by making
a general war of the description recounted in the resolution of the dynamiters
would lose the sympathy of mankind.
It was decided to despatch members of
the dynamite -factions who are acquainted
with military tactics to the camp of El
Mahdi who it is proposed to instruct in
the use of dynamite cannon.
London, Feb. 23.—Northcoto iu the
presence of a full house rose and moved I
that the address of which he gave notice
on Thursday be presented to the Queen
representing that the courae pursued by
the government in regard to Egypt and
Soudan has involved a great sacrifice of
valuable lives and heavy expenses without any beneficial results, rendering it
imperatively necessary to interests of tho
Biitish empire and Egyptian people the
government should distinctly recognize
und take decided measures to fulfil the
responsibility now iucumbei-t on thein.
John Morley, liberal, offered an amendment to the motion of censure-in favor
of the evacuation of tho Soudan. He
refrained from expressing an opinion on
tho policy of the government, and regretted its decision to smash tlie Mahdi.
Morley Bald *the tories were partially
blameabte for the death of Gordon
through their importuning the government with questions and preventing compliance with Gen, Gordon's request for
the assistance of Zebehr Pasha. Some
thing might still be done, he thought,
hy legislation with the Mahdi, bat the
Soudan must be loft to tho Soudanese.
Gladstone paid a tribute to the devotion of Gen, Gordon, saying, his one object in life was to do good. He denied
that the government had any reason lust
year to suppose Geo. Gordon waa iu imminent danger. Gen. Gordon's own despatches had led the government to behove he would retreat with the garrison
southward, if possible. The government
had not changed a halrsbreadth from the
covenant to Bend Gen. Gordon assistance
when necessary aud when possible to do
so. He referred to the statement of Gen.
UordonV colonels, tbat under no circumstances could rohVf have beon timely, as
Vttttr. had long ago agreed to betray
Khartoum oa soon aa the British arrived.
Gladstone said be fully shared in the re-
{ret for the loss of a gallant ollicer, but,
here wos some comfort iu believing that
no great effusion of blood hod occurred
•t Khartoum. England's mission in the
Soudan was safe. The government might
have committed errors of judgment, but
throughout it had acted with honesty of
purpose, nud bu felt satisfied no other
course was open to them. He referred
to the better government and other reforms established in Egypt, and snid
there waa no longer any danger of a rupture with France. If hirStafford North-
cote wanted established a good, stable
government in the Soudan such u covenant was not compatible with common
prudence, because it meant the establishment of a British Christian government
over Mohammedans, This would entail
a struggle, for the people were courageous by birth and made reckless l>y fanaticism. The government refused to enter
uiM> any, covenant not reasonable and
priident, even without the determination
to' Smash El Mahdi. If tho house thought
the government had failed in ita duty,
the latter would cheerfully accent the
verdict, but if they believed it had acted
with good intentions and without palpable errors of judgment, he hoped they
would give expression to their confidence,
aud thus strengthen the hands of the
whole country iu tbe face of the world.
ESeveral speakers of less prominence then
addressed the house. Redmond said:
The Irish people desired to see El Mahdi
successful iu Ids struggle for liberty,
London, Feb. 23.—Secret negotiations
are .being carried on between the government nnd the Irish party with regard to
the terms on which tho Irish members uf
parliament will support government iu u
division on tbe question of a Vote of mm-
sure. Government agents have ottered
in return for such support a modification
of the crimes act, but Parnell insists on a
pledge there shall - be uo renewal of the
act. The prospects thnt tho government
wfll obtain a majority is blighter. , The
Marquis of Salisbury's notice of motion,

Ottawa, Feb. 24. -Following is a synopsisof tho forthcoming reports of Judge
Gray and Secretary of State Chapleau,
who were appointed to investigate the
Chinese question. Each commissioner
reports separately, .fudge Gray dealing
with* the evidence taken iu Uritish Columbia, and Chapleau with the Chineso
question from the United States standpoint, the result of his visit to Ban Franoisco and other American cities. While
tho two commissioners deal with tho
different phases of the question they concur iu their general conclusion. The
report, is favorable to a continuation of
Ghhiftt immigration. It is pointed out
that the development ot both British
Columbia and California, as shown by
evidence taken, has been mainly due to
Chinese labor; that it ia essential to the
continued prosperity of British Columbia
that Chineso ahould lie allowed to settle
ill whatever numbers they deaiie. And
they recommend that the only restrictive
legislation should be in the direction of
providing greater polico .Mid sanitary
regulations to prevent crimo and disease
among them. The commissioners endeavor to aliow that every industry in
British Columbia has boon developed by
Chinese labor. To check it or pass any
restrictive measure by which tlie Chi
nese will be driven out of the country
would be a death-blow to all such industries.
Kokti, Feb. 24.—At a formal reception tendered the native chiefs to-day,
Wolseley assured them of bis intention
to recapture 'Khartoum.
London, Feb. 24.—The Nizam of Hyderabad, the strongest Mohammedan
province of India, has ottered to furnish
native troops in aid of the recapture of
Khartoum.
London, Feb. 25.—A dispatoh from
Korti Bays the Kamsin winds, which do
uot generally begin before1 March, have
already begun to blow over the Soudan
and have assumed almost the intensity
of Birroccos. Tbe wind is hot and accompanied with blinding clouds of sand,
which cut like needle points. The troops
only find shelter by lying down with
tlieir faces to tbe earth till the storm
%asBes, when they struggle out of the
sand almost choked and blinded. The
cavalry horses suffer terribly from the
effects of the hot bloats, and many of
them had to be shot. It is supposed the
Kamsin will prevail about u month.
Kokti, Feb. 25.—Gen. Brackcnbury,
commander of the late General Earte's
forco, reports from Hcbbcd, opposite Ka-
niet Island, that on the 21st, Ins entire
force, including 780 animals, guns aud
equipment complete, crossed over to the
right bank of the Nile, and waa ready to
advance at daybreak on Sunday tb Abu
Hamed, 40 miles distant. Bracken bury
had visited the scene of Colonel Stewart a
murder, and found some of Stewart's
visiting cards, papers belonging to Herbert aud Power, and a shirt sleeve stained with blood. The steamer wliich convoyed Stewart from Khartoum to tho
place of the murder is now sixteen feet
abovo the present level of the water.
She is gutted and filled with Band. The
wounded of Brackenbury's party are
doing well. No deaths have occurred
since the 12th. The health and spirits
of the troops nre excellent. Only 18
men, besides the wounded, are sick,'
London, Feb. 25.—Sir Henry Gordon,
brother of the hero of Khartoum, has requested Zebehr Pasha to open negotiations with El Mahdi for the restoration
of the private papers and other personal
property of General Gordon, which fell
into the hands of El Mahdi's troops when
Khartoum was captured. Zebehr is requested to inform El Mahdi that these
souvenirs are only wanted for the satisfaction of General Gordon's relatives, and
is authorized to guarantee that no military use of these pupers will be made.
Naplks, Feb. 25.—The third Italian
expedition to the Red Sea, which sailed
yesterday, has been followed by six torpedo boats.
Svakim, Feb. 25.—The latest uews
from Agis and Shunt confirms the report
of a brilliant victory won by the Mudir
of the Taka and Shuttera tribe of friendly
Arabs, against the Hadendowah tribe, in
au attack made by the latter upon some
friendly tribes for supplying the garrison
of Kassala with grain. It is now stated
that during the battle no less than 3600
Hudendowuhs were killed, and among
the Blain was Seikh Moosa. The Kassala
garrison is short of food and ammunition,
and as the place is hard pressed by tho
enemy despite tho recent repulse, a surrender must result unless the garrison ia
relieved soon.

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by tho Company in
providing suitable tjuarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase prov- s
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
mid comfort. Hore a crowd may be
seon listening to test performances-on
first-class instruments mado by leadiug
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the succobb which they liave achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowman ville
about fifteen years ago, the stock boing
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with tiie business. About teu
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W. S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the husiuoss has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, aud the establishment waB increased, until it now occupies a loading
{osition among Canadian undertakings,
bturns out about 200 organs aud SO
Kifluos per month.. These are produced
y 2.">0 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per month. Tbe whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, England: Hamburg, Germany-
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auch*
land, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition iu the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of u room, and Ts convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and Ib
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room, Tliese
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to tho best
American pianos.
The organs mode by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $30 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in tlie pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bunk pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but ia expected here at the
end of the week. It - is arranged to lie
blown by Turk's water motor, which hns
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument Tlie organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to tlio
Sarlor favorite. The cobcs show won-
erful variety. Many of theso are of
5are beauty aud skilful workmanship,
'he case which secured for the Company
a prize at tbe Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design aad artistic in execution, The musicians who
tested fhe organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; whilo visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the oases,
[T. R. Pearson A Co., New Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organs,

A REMARKABLE STORY.
(Continual. 1
"Then it ia Catherine that is ill,'
criod Mn. John. "Oh, 1 know wnno-
tiling must bo iroing to happen to her,
for 1 dreamed of her all last night, and
I havo not been ablo to ihink of anything else all day. Surely ho may
come in. What is it, Edward ?"
* # * * * *
Ue wus not a frequent visitor; indeed
it- is doubtful whether, save for a visit
of ceremony, he had evor boon there
before. As it was ao near bedtime tho
firo was low, and the two candles nn
tho table gave vory littlo light in the
dark,wainscoted room. Outside it hud
seoined n ruddy littlo star of douieBlic
comfort, but within tha prospect wus
lets cheerful. They hud boon prepar-
iiut'togoto bod. Mrs. John's wnrli
was carefully folded and put uway.evon
the littlo litter of thread nnd thimbles
on the table had beeu tidied, as her
usage was. A book lying open, which
was Hester's, wus tho only trace of occupation, and the walls seemed to
quench nnd repel the littlo light.exccpt
in sumo polished projection hero and
there, where there was a sort of reflection, Mrs. John hastily lighted the
two candles on tho muiitlopiecc, which
were always ready in case any ono
Bhould come in, and which mirrored
themselves with a sort of astonishment
in the little glass against which they
stood. Sho was eager to be hospitable, although she had a somewhat
warm realization of Edward as on the
othor aide; perhaps, indeed, this of itself made her more anxious to show
him every nttontioir as a sort of magnanimous way of showing lhat she bore
no malice.
"It is rather too lato to offer you
tea," alio said, "but perhaps a glass of
wino, Hester—for it is a cold night,
nnd your cousin hus had a long walk.
I am very much-relieved to hear that
Catherine is quito well. For the tirst
moment I confess I was vory muoh
alarmed, for she hns used her head a
great deal, and people say that paralysis -"
" I don't think she is at all a subject for that. Hor nerves aru in perfect order," Edward said.
"Thnt is u great thing to say for tlio
strongest of us," said Mrs. John, sitting down in her chair again, aud furtively drawing hor shawl around her ;
for he could not surely moan to stay
long nt that hour, and it seemed a pity
to put moro coal on the fire. "Nerves
are the weakest part with most ladies.
I know, to bo sure, that Catherine is a
very remarkable person, and not at ull
like tho ordinary run. Sho has a masculine mind, I have always heard.
You are like Hester-you are not at
the ball to-night. But you go goner-
' ally, I hope ?"
"I go sometimes. There was no
particular attraction to-night," said Edwnrd.
lio saw that Hester understood, and
that the ready color rose to her face.
How he longed to take the little tedious mother by the shoulders and send
her up-statrs. A sort of longing for
sympathy, for Borne one to share his
second and hidden life with him, had
seized upon him. He cuuld not have
told her all, oven if he had got Hester
to himself, but he would have told her
s-juiethiini, enough to keep the loo-full
cup from running over. Ilut Mrs.
John settled herself as comfortably as
she could in her chair. She tried to
keep awake and make conversation.
Shu would not allow one of the oppo
Bite to suppose that ahe was wauling in
courtesy. Hester sat down in the hack-
ground nnd said nothing. Sho did not
share Edward's faith that hor mother
would soon be tired out and leave them
to themselves, but it was impossible
thnt she Bhould not share to somo extent in his excitement of suspense, and
be anxious to know what no had to
say.
"I liko young men to go to halls,"
Mrs. John said. "Where cuuld thoy bo
so wall employed ns amusing thein-
solves among thoir own kind of people? And though, perhaps, Ellen may
be a little silly, you know, I am sure
she means well. That is what I always
say to Hester. Young puoplo are apt
to judge severely, but Ellen always
meant well. She might pruniise loo
much now and then, but so do wc nll.
It is so easy to make yourself agreeable
by just saying what will please; but
then sometimes it is very difficult to
carry it out."
"Nothing could be more true," said
Edward, with a bow.
. "Yes, it is very true," said Mrs.
John. "Tt Booms all so easy at the
moment; but afterward you have tu
take into considerable whether it is
suitable or not, aud whethor thu person is juat the right kind, and to make
everything fit; and nil that ia ao diflicult." Then tliere was a littlo pause,
nnd Mra. John began to foul very
Bleepy. "Do you often—tako a walk
—so lato?'1 Bhe said. "Oh, I know
some gentlemen do, Hcster'a poor papa ; but thero was tho club—I used
always to think it was tho club—"
"Indeed I ought it. apologise for
venturing to nsk admission at such an
hour," said Edward. *'I should not
havo taken it upon me had not Heater
coma out to tho gate."
"Oh, that docs not matter a bit,"
said Mrs. John, waving her hand. Sho
could scarcely keep hor eyes opon.
Aftor eleven o'clock—for the hour had
Btrtick sinco he camo in—Cathorine
ought to havo had a "stroke" ut least
tu justify bo lato n visit. "You nro
aura you aro not keeping anything from
us about poor, dour Cathorino l" she
said, anxiously, " Oh, [ think it
ia alwaya better, if thero is any misfortune, to say it out at once."
Thua the convenatitm, if conversation it could possibly bo called,was carried on for somo timo. Hester did
not Bay a word. Sho Bat a little behind thom, looking at them, henelf in
» state of wowing impatience and suspense What could he liavo to say
that made him omnu at such an hour 1
And was it possible that ho ever could
got it Baid ? There went on for some
timo an interchange of hesitating re-
marks. Mn. 'lohn got more and more
aloepy. Her oyes closed in spitu of
horself when Edward spoke. Shu
opened thom again widely when his
voice stopped, and she Biniled ntid snid
something that wns generally wido of
the mark. At Inst Heater roso and
Mine to the baok of hor chair mid then
stooped over her.
"Mamma, you aro vory tired; don't
you think you had better go up-staira
to bed V
"I hoipe—" oried   Edward ; I fear
, that my ill-timed visit- "
"Not for the world, dear," said MrB.
John, in nn undertone; "nodoubt he'll
be going presently. Oh no, you must
not think anything of tho aoi't—wo often ill up muoh—later than this—"
and ihe eat very upright in hor chair
and opened her eyea wide, determined
to duty at all hazards. Thon Edward
arose, and looked at Hester with an
entreaty which ahe oould not resist,
She was so anxious, too, tn know what
ho wanted.
"Dun't cotuo out, mothor; 1 will
opon the door lor Edward," she said.
"But you don't know tho right turn
of the key. Well then, perhaps- if
your cousin will excuse me—but bo
suro ynu lock the door right. It is a
diflicult door. Put the key in us far
as it will go—and then turn it to tho
right, Let ine soo?—ia it the right''
I know it is thu wrong way, not tho
way you generally turn a key. Well,
then, good-night. I hope you don't
think it very uncivil of mo to leavo you
to Hester,' Mrs. John said, shaking
hands, with that extremely wide-awake
look whioh Bleepy persons put on then);
Bolves.
Edward went out into the dark passages, following Hester and her can
die, with.a sense of something that
must bo said to her now. He had uot
thought of this when he sot out. Thou
ho had boon merely excited, glad of
the relief of air and silence, scarcely
aware that ho wanted to pour out his
soul into tho bosom of one who would
understand him, of her who alone, he
thought, could he trusted fully. Uut
tho obstacles, the hiiidcraucos, had developed this longing. Why should he
havo mado so inappropriate a visit except under thu atimulouB of having
something to say? Aud she, too, waa
now expecting, breathlessly, something
which ho must have to Bay. When she
set down her candle aud opened tho
door into the verandah sho turned
around instinctively to hear what it
waa. The whito moon shono down
straight through the glass roof, throwing black shadows of nil the wintry
plants in the pots, and of the two who
stood curiously foreshortened by tho
light above them. She did not ask
anything, but her attitude was
question. He took both her hands in
his hands.
"It is r.othing," hoBaid. "That is,
I don't know what there is to tell you.
1 had come to a conclusion, after a
great dual of thought. I had settled
to begin iu a new way, and I felt that
I must talk it over, that 1 could not
keep silent; and there ia no one I could
speak to with freedom but you."
Sho did iv.it withdraw her hands, or
show nny surprise at his confidence
but unly whispered " What ia it, Ed
ward ?" with all tho excitement that
had been gathering iu hor.
"I don't know how I can tell you,"
he said ; "it is only business, If I
were to go into details you wouldn't
understand. It is only that I havo
made up my mind to a new course of
action. I am burning my ship, Hester.
I must get rid of thia shut-up life somehow. I havo gone in to win—a great
fortune- or to love—"
"Edward !" she said, with an unconscious pressure of his hand, "tell me,
1 think I could understand."
"So loifg ns you feel with me, that is
all I want," ho said. "I feel better
now that I have told yuu. We shall
make our fortune, donr, or—but there
is no or—we imi3t succeed. I know
wu shall; and then, Hostor. my only
love-"
Hu drew close tu hor, imd kissed her
in bi.i excitement, straining her bands.'
It was not a love-kiss, but tho expression of that agitation wliich was in his
veins. She drew back from him in astonishment, not in anger, understanding it so.
"Whnt is it? To win a great fortune, or to lose—what 1 Edward, you
nre not risking—other people?" glie
said.
"Pshaw 1" he said, almost turning
away from her. Then next moment,
-'never mind other peoplo, Heater.
That will comb all right. I hopo you
don't tliink I um a fool. I have made
a new departure, that is all, aud with
everything m my favor. Wish me
good luck, and keep my secret. It
seemed too big for ine to keep all by
myself. Now thut I have put half of
it upon you I shnll bo able to sleep."
"But you have not told mc anythiug," .she said.
Upon which he laughed a little, in
an agitated way, and said :
"Perhaps that is all the better. You
know everything, and yet you know
nothing. I Imve been kept in lung
enough, nud done ns othor people
would, not as I wished myself; and
now that is over. There is no one in
the world to whom I would say so
much but ynu."
Heater was pleased and touched to
the bottom of her heart.
"Oh, if I could only help you," she
criod. "If I cuuld dojauything, or if
yuu could tell me more ! I know 1
could understand. But, anyhow, if it
is a relief to tell me just na much as
that, I am glad ; only if I could but
help you—"
"At present no une cuuld help. It
ia fortune that must decide."
"Vou mean Providence," said Hester, softly. She had never usod the
phraseology of religious sentiment, as
many girls do at her age, and was very
shy in respect to it. But sho added,
undor her breath, "And one can always pray."
At this Edward—wliich was quite a
sign uf grace in him, though ahe did
uot know it as such—drew back with a
hasty movement. It gave him a strange
sensation to think of the success,which
he wm seeking by such means, being
prayed for, us if it had boon a holy enterprise. But just then Mrs. John
stirred audibly within, as if about to
come nut nml inquire into thu causo of
tho delay. He kissed hor again, tenderly, without any resistance nn her
part, and said :
"Good-night—good-night! T must
not say uny more."
Heater opened the outer door for
him, letting in the cold night air. It
wns a glorious night, atill ns only winter is, the moonlight filling up everything. Sho stood for u moment look-
after him ns he crossed tho threshold. Whon ho had made a few steps
into thu night, he came back again,
hastily, and caught her hands, onco
moro.
Hostor, wo win nr lose. Will you
como away with mo ? Will you givo
up all this fur mo ? You don't lovo it
any more than I do. Will you come
with me and be froo V
'Edward, you don't think what you
Baying.   You forgot my mother,"
alio said.
He gave au impatient stamp with
his foot. Contradiction was intolerable
to bim, or any objection, at this mo-
mont, Then he called "Good-night."
again more loudly, into iho -air, us
though to reach Mrs. John in the parlor, and hurried away.
"Edward wns a long timu saying
guud-night," said Mn. John. "I suppose you wero talking about tho ball;
that is always what happens whon you
givo up a thing fur a whim; you always
regret it after. Of course, you would
both have preferred to be thoro. I
suppose that ia why he came in this
evoning—»thing he never did in his
life boforo. Well, I must say we are
all indebted, moro or less, to Ellen
Merridew, Hester. Sho has drawn us
together in a way (here never was auy
chance of in the old times."
