current Events and Opinions.
The committee on a prime meridian which assembled in Washington, October 1, included forty mem-
bora, representing twenty-four governments, as follows : — Austria-
Hungary, Brazil, OolombuB, Costa
Rica, Denmark, France, Germany,
Great Britain, Guatemala, Hawaii,
Italy, Japan, Mexico, Netherlands,
Paraguay, Russia, Sau Domingo,
San Salvador, Spain, Sweden and
Norway, Switzerland, Turkey, Venezuela, and the United States. The
conference was not as prompt to
. adopt the general meridian of Greenwich as had been expected, but a
resolution to that eflecfc was finally
passed, and that meridian recommended to nll governments for adoption, the representatives of twenty-
one governments voting in favor of
it, San Domingo against it and
France and Brazil abstaining from
voting. The conference also resolved that longitude continue to be
counted as at present io two directions, up io 180°, instead of in one
direction up to 360°, as had been
recommended by the Roman confer
ence. Although the Greenwich
meridian has long been the standard for four-fifi;lib of the woild's
navigators and geographers, its
adoption by all will be a common
benefit. Tlie ancient geographers
drew the first meridian through
Ferro, the westernvnosc of the Canary Islands, and this is yet followed to sosae exle.it. The French
have also used tho meridian of Paris, the Spaniards that of Mr 1 rid,
while we have used both tha"'. of
Greenwich and Wash i-i;, ton. The
French repres6.itt».tives appear to
have made the principal objection
to tlie adoption of the Greenwich
meridian as seeming to be an English standard, but as it extends from
norih to south through the whole of
"Western France, they could remedy
this by setiiiH* up an observatory on
that line, aud styling the reckoning
accordingly.—Scientific Americr.n.

for aught that is known or can be
known in England or India, such is
the state of our "intelligence department." Meanwhile, responsi"'
British officers; men who have mapped out the routes and measured
them; who have calculated with the
utmost nicety how many days it
will take to move certain Russian
forces from point to point, by land
and water, till they arrive at.Herat,
Ohitral, and Cabul; men like these
report the following conclusions
from what they already know and
see:—"It is no use disguising the
fact; the buttons are off the foils in
this struggle betweeu us and Russia, Russia oan in from eighty to
one hundred days put 95,000 regular troops into positions from whicli
we can hardly drive her, and froni.
whioh she can undertake the invasion of India at her own convenience, and with a fair expectation
of success," To meet such a force,
which would of course be reinforced
by Turkoman and other troops, we
could not oppose more than 10,000
English troops; nor so many as 50,-
000 men of all sorts; and behind
them there would be no reserves.
A late number of the St. James
Gazette contains a homewhnt remarkable letter on 1'ndiim affairs. The
writer says: If India were entirely
peopled with a race thoroughly loyal to us we could meet Russian advances with a very light heart. I
know there are some who profess to
believe that this is the case; there
are others who think, on the contrary, tliat India is a seething mass
of disaffection. I do not go with
either of these opinions. I believe
there is much loyflty in India. I
believe the majority are indifferently
and passively loyal. But I believe
there are a large number (probably
nearly all the Mahommedans) who
are thoroughly disloyal; who would
take advantage of our hands being
full in a Russian war to raise up rebellion to the utmost of their power.
But what is tho likelihood of our
having "our hands full in a Russian
war?' To the knowledge of the
authorities and at a time when (we
speak the literal truth) those same
authorities would uot and could not
lie surprised to learn a month hence
that Russia hnd planted nn army
20,000 strong at Herat, the Britisli
troops in India are 6,000 men below
the nominal strength of the establishment : nnd this in spite of the
liberal bounties by which time-expired men iu*e tempted to renew
their engagements, Meanwhile the
difficulty of recruiting for the native
army, already great, is increasing.
Taking the whole army together, it
is in point of numbers a minimum
peace establishment, Moreover, it
is a fact, and not a fact that ought
to bo treated as if it had no existence, that a large proportion of the
native army has no such fighting
qualities as would warrant its being
opposed to any htirdy and disciplined forco. And, again we sp,y,
theve is reason to suspect, reason to
believe even, that at this hour a
movement is on foot iu Central Asia
which may carry a Russian army to
Herat and beyond before many
months are pest. We have an army
it is true; it is well t'-iiined, it is
well disciplined, and I believe a
good deal of it is trustworthy; but
it can't do miracles. It can't, for
instance, as oiu* monitor goes on to
say, supply a force to meet the Russian army of 100,000 men which we
may pretty coundeui'y expect to
see over tho Afghan frontier before
long, As matters stand, not more
than 10,000 Bri* ish troops, not so
many as 40,000 native troops, could
bo spared for that business. For
all India would be iu a foment. It
is strongly apprehended that all the
necessary preparations for such an
advance aro being made; they may
The Alaskan Government.
Governor John H. Kinkead, of Alaska, who has fur the past two days
been stopping at the Occidental in
this city, left yeaterday afternoon for
San Franciaco via Portland. Governor Kinkcail enme down from Sitka on
the Ancon, arriving at Port Townsend
laat Tuesday evening. He reports the
affairs of the newly established civil
government as moving smoothly, although the officers are much hampered
by the crudity of the bill under which
its operations are conducted. The
governor has forwarded a report to
President Arthur which treats briefly
upon the most important features of
that region, its resources, population
and ncudB, nnd makes some very im-
Eortant suggestions with regard to the
est policy to be pursued in establishing a successful Leal administration.
So impressed is ho with the necessity
of prompt additional legislation that
after consultation with other members
of the civil government he decided to
report in person to the president nnd
the secretary of the interior, and, if
possible, secure their active co-operation in obtaining suoh amendments
and extensions of the provisions of
the organic act as he deems imperative. He enpeets to be in Washington
beforo congress assembles, and hopes
to secure prompt action by that body.
Alaska ia n region but little known,
oven by thoso high in nuthority, It is
n country whose resources, though
limited as to number, are of great
value. Especially is this true of its
mining, fish and tur industries. Latterly public attention has been direct*
ed to this hitherto neglected portion
of Uncle Sam's possessions. It is yet
too early to expect, or even encourage,
much immigration, but with an effective civil government firmly established and in successful operation,
Alaska will, within the next five years,
be no longer a terra incognita.—Seattle

A Spelling Bee In Court.
The Court tried to spell "stereo*
type," and there was trouble. The
Court was "stumped." Hts Honor
was named Duffy, and he sat in the
Tombs yesterday morning. The Court
was reluctant to "give it away" that it
was stuck on the word. It scratched
its ear with its pencil.
"A—let's see," remarked the Court
to the complainant. "Ah—you're in
that business, ain't you?"
"Yes, yonr Honor," admitted the
complainant.
"Well, just writo your card on that
Blip of paper," and the Court caressed
its long moustache and smiled quietly
to itself at its own ingenuity. There
was annoyance on the magisterial
brow as the complainant handed back
the paper with simply his name and
address,
"Here; I told you to put your business on this," snid the Court, sternly,
returning the slip, When it came
back, written between the name uud
address was "alerenlipor," and the
Court was complncently proceeding to
inscribe it upon tho warrant, when
the olerk, looking over His Honor's
shoulder, whispered, "Why, that ain't
right." There was a iio-trilliutr-with-
the-Cnurt tone in His Honor's voice
as shoving the papera one side, he
said, "Hore, Mr. Clerk, fix this thing
for this stupid fellow. Some people
are born ignoramuses."---New York
Herald.

The Ninth Commandment.
"What is the ninth commandment?"
said a teacher to a boy in Sunduy
school.
'Thou shalt not boar false witness
against thy neighbor."
"Whnt is bearing false witness
against thy neighbor?"
"It is telling falsehood."
"Thnt is partly true, and yet it is
not exactly the right answer—because
you ean tell a falsehood about your*
self."
A little girl then snid:
"It Is whon nobody did anything
and somebody went nud told of it."
"That will du," snid tho tonohur,
with a smile.
The little girl had given n curious
answer, but underneath her odd language thero was a pretty clear conception of the true moaning.—Christian
Weekly.
A Change of Heart.
A rich man was approached on tho
stroet and asked to contribute to a
charitable purpose. He declined on
the plen of hard times.
Just then a third party appeared.
He was a newspaper reporter,
"Aro you meeting with muoh sue*
cess?" ho inquired of tho collector.
"I nm doing splendidly," was tho
reply; "just look at thnt list of
names."
"Mny I make a copy uf it for pub*
licatiou?"
"Certainly."
"I guess you may put me duwn for
sny |D0," whispered the rich man.—•

If it l>o true, us stated in yester
day's despatches, that France
decided to abandon her demand
an indemnity on account of
Chinese war, tho fact must he
cepted *s either a confession
guilt or weakness. It may be that
the Trench, having become satisfied
that their action in demanding satisfaction was a mistake, havo decided
to waive that claim now as a matter
of justice. We aro inclined
doubt, however, whether this is
motive which now prompts France.
Ifc is not a characteristic of that
nation to suiter military chagrin for
the sake of doing a simple act of
justice. There is nothing dearer to
the French people than victory and
hurrah. To abandon victory in
prospect, and withdraw the claim
for compensation which was ver*
lately urged so stoutly must bo ex
tromely distasteful. We bolieve
the sudden change of front is a confession of weakness. France is not
prepared for nn extended campaign
in China. If she undertook it it
earnest we doubt not she would win
but the sacrifices would be very
enormous. She has an army in
northern Africa holding in subjection the hnlf-civilized and scarcely
half-conquered people whom she
claims as her subjects. Iu Madagascar another army is engaged in a
still less profitable and more hopeless campaign. Then site is exceedingly anxious to take part in the
Egyptian quarrel, but cannot with
credit to herself while her forces
and her interests are thus divided.
Under these circumstances France
shows wisdom in abandoning what
may turn out tb be even more dis
appointing than a shadow for that
which is real and more within her
reach. And this decision is most
fortunate for the rest, A protract
ed fight between France and China
would very seriously interfere with
trade, and would almost certainly
produce complications elsewhere.
Let us hope that tlie end of this
.most unfortunate affair has been
reached, and tliat tho mediation of
Great Britain may remove the bad
blood existing Iwtween her and the
French nation.
Lawyers' Morals.
As the court of assize will sit in
this ..city to-day, and we shall expect  to  see  present not only  a
learned judge of tlie supreme court
of British Columbia, but some of
the liest known nnd most gifted members of the bar, the subject of lawyers'   morals   is  entirely apropos.
At  a  late meeting of the Social
Science Association Mr, Theodore
Bacon  read   a paper in wliich he
assumes very strong ground upou
the relation of lawyers profession
ally to honesty.   A synopsis of this
paper appears in the current number  of the Century, with a summary of  the conclusions reached.
Mr.  Bacon, himself a lawyer, admits  frankly that honesty is not
popularly  recognized as a trait belonging to the legal profession.    "If
unswerving integrity, if ingenuous
simplicity, are  recognized by the
community iu the legal profession,"
he says, "they are regarded as an
incongruous   interpolation   in   the
normal type*"    He says, further
"I can find no dilTerent—or rather
I  will say no lower—ethical basis
of action for the advocate than for
any other member of society." This
declaration   greatly   simplifies the
question, and brings it within the
compass of ordinary modes of reasoning and judgment   One is too
apt to fall into the orror of supposing that lawyers are a privileged
class of persons to whom common
rules of propriety may not be applied,     Mr.   Bacon destroys that
illusion, and we think it will be
difficult   satisfactorily  to  explain
away his conclusion.   After such a
declaration of principles Mr. Bacon
proceeds  to  state  that a lawyer
should not always he condemned
for undertaking to defend a criminal,     Most persons would say that
if lawyers are to bo governed entirely by the same rules and principles whieh apply to other persons,
they   could   not consistently lend
their aid to the escape of a criminal.
This notion, Mr. Bacon says, arises
from the popular fallacy tliat the
publio  interest   "demands  always
the punishment of bod men."   Bad
men and good men stand upon precisely the same footing iu the eyes
of the law nntil the law has been
violated.    Then the courts do not
enquire whether they he good or
bad, but whether they have beon
guilty of the particular breach of
Uw with whioh they have been
charged. While protesting against
the hasty and summary trial of
criminals, and interposing the safeguards provided, the lawyer is not
so much seeking a verdict in tho
individual case as he is contending
for a great and general principle.
No person can tell how soon ho
himself may stand before the bar
of justice, charged with tlio commission of a crime of which ho is
wholly innocent. Ifc may occur to
him then, if it never did before,
that the forms and apparent absurdities of legal procedure.aro not
intended so much to clear the guilty
as to protect the innocent. This
viow of the subject may have escaped those who very lately clamored on our streets for a moro swift
application of the law, but it is
nevertheless a true and proper view
to take. It uf different, howevor,
in civil cases, and Mr. Bacon main-
tains that a lawyer has no right to
become the advocate of a man who
is seeking to defraud his fellow.
He may sometimes do so unwittingly. His client may persuade
him that he is honest aud his cause
just; but whenevor. Hf.'Siich cases,
the lawyer comes to 'discover the
deception, he is bound to withdraw from ifc. There are threo
maxims whicli are the outcome
of this paper, and we givo them
in full:
1. A lawyer ought to bo a gentleman.
His function as an attorney Rives liim no
dispensation to disregard the ordinary
rules of good manners, ami the ordinary
pi-tn -iplea of decency and honor. . Ho
has no right to slander his neighbor,
even it 1i •= u-ighbor be the, defendant in
a cause in which hu appears for tlie plain
tiff. He has no right totally or browbeat a witness in cross-examination, or
artfully to entrap that witness into giving false testimony. Whatever the privilege of the court may be, the lawyer who
is guilty of auch practices in court is uo
gentleman out of court.
2, A lawyer ought not to lie. He may
defend a criminal whom he knows to
be guilty, but he may not say to the
jury that he believes this criminal to be
innocent. Ho may not in any way iu-
tentionally convey to the jury tho impression that he believes the man to be
innocent. He may not, in his plea, pervert or distort tho evidence so as to
weaken the force or conceal the meaning
of it. He is a sworn ollicer of the
court, and hiB oath Bhould bind liim to
the strictest veracity. It would be
quixotic to expect lum to assist his adversary, but his obligation to speak tlie
truth outranks every obligation ho owes
to his client. It is notorious tliat some
lawyers who would think it scandalous
to tell a falsehood out of court, in any
business transaction, lie shamelessly in
court in behalf of their clients, and seem
to think it part of their professional duty.
Tbat bar of justice beforo whieh, by
thoir professional obligations, they are
bound to the most stringent truthful-
ness, is the very place where they seem
to consider themselves absolved from tho
common lnw of veracity. So long as tbo
legal mind is infected with this deadly
heresy, we need not wonder that our
courts of justico often become the instruments of unrighteousness.
Kuu~,4rji Swindlers of nll types are aided by lawyers in their depredations upon
society.
These conclusions are such as
must commend themselves to the
judgment of all intelligent renders.
There are very few of us indeed
who cannot call to remembrance
instances in our own personal ob
servation where, under the plea of
professional license, lawyers have
violated the most sacred moral obligations. People have sometimes
wondered whether such practices
were justifiable—whether a lawyer
engaged in his profession should
not be judged by the same moral
code which regulates the conduct
of 011101% Mr. Bacon's clear utter
ances upon this point will set at
rest many doubts, because it is the
expression of an opinion which has
been half formed in many'minds,
To the suggestion that better legal
education might correct • the evils
mentioned by Mr. Bacon, a clergy
man who was present said: "I desire to ask for information, whether
it is not the case that in many instances the most highly educated
attorneys provo the most facile and
unscrupulous instruments as the
advocates of large corporations and
monopolies T It is said that no
one at tho meeting attempted to
answer this troublesome question:
they felt it could not be answered
with credit to the 'profession,
'There are many lawyers," said a
distinguished member of the New
York bar, "who should be disbarred
without delay for dishonest and corrupt practices; and until some
serious aud successful attempt is
made in this direction, the legal
profession must expect, and will
deserve to decline in popular esteem." Tho morality of the legal
profession is a matter of very great
importance. Lawyers are said to
be a necessary evil. They are
necessary afc -all events, and wheth-
they are evil or not there is
undoubtedly room for improvement.
We speak, of course, in general
terms. No one would suspect a
British Columbia lawyer of dishonesty I

It is claimed by some that the typhoid fever now prevailing in Victoria
ib due to eating vegetables raised and
sold by the Chinese. It ia mud that
when young, the vegetables are liter
ally covered with the vilest kind of
filth, and that after gathering them
the Chinamen have been known to
keep the vegetables in the most disgusting kind of water over night in
order to keep them fresh for marketing the next day.—Victoria Times,
The aame thing ia reported in this city
and there is growing up a decided prejudice against Chinese vegetables.
Victoria Dens.-—For some time the
Victoria Times has been investigating
the slums of the capital, and the picture it hns been painting is quite alarming. It affirms that among the
Chinese opium joints of that eity its
reporter found young girls belonging
to aome of the most respeotable families, These girls were lying in the
opium bunks, stupid from the effects
of the drug, and at the mercy of the
devil. Une of tho girls stated that
she had tirst beon induced to use opium
through the persuasions of the China
cook employed in her home! We notice that the other papers of Victoria
denounce the revelations of the Times
as uncalled for and calculated to injure the fair fame of the city. If they
are pot true, the Times has committed
n most unpardouable offence; if they
are true, it is perfectly justified in the
exposure.
Tub Stehkv Murder,—The examination of Rogers lost Friday afternoon resulted in hts commitment for
trial on a charge of murder. The
evidence produuud did not bring to
light any important circumstance not
already mentioned by thia journal, and
in view of the sitting of the court tomorrow we do not propose to publish
it. It is to be regretted that this case
haa given rise to so much publio comment, a great deal of which seems to
ui wholly unwarranted by the circumstances. Wo believe there ia not a
{ieraon in the city who wishes to see
.ogers escape from just punishment.
At the same time it must be obvious
that the apparent anxiety manifested
by some persons on tho street for the
speedy execution of this man may fur*
ntsh ground, held good by the courts,
for granting the delay so muoh deplored. Huty justico may ho Justin
aome instances, and it might even bo
considered well sometimes to strine
down a criminal whilo in the very not
of committing crime. But we vtally
see no reason for such haste in this
particular instance, or for any popular
agitation. Tho proofs of guilt seem
certain enough, and we suppose no
Eorsoti can doubt what verdict would
o reached. But what is Rogers' case
to-day may be any citizen's case tomorrow, with this difference, that the
citizen may be wholly innocent of the
crime of which he is accused, although
the circumstantial evidence may Boom
very complete. Summarry justico is
not always safe. The courts must
treat every man as innocent until he
has been proved guilty by a regular
process of law. Thore cannot be two
sets of rules, and tho procedure in the
caso of Rogers must he the same as
in any other caso. We don't want
any lynch law in British Columbia: it
is a very unsafe law.    ,

Editor Columbian.—Ab the season Is
drawing to a close, aud our representatives will soon be called together to legislate for us, we hope they will be prepared
to advocate suoh chauges in our mail
service all along the south side of the
rivor as will give us increased accommodation. About a year ago threo now
post offices were opened on this sido of
tho river—Hall's Prairie, Clover Valley
and Langley Prairie, These offices were
supplied with one service a week each
way, which is not considered enough nor
at tho right time for outgoing mails. We
think that the carrier should go out one
day {say Friday) with the outgoing mail
to Now Westminster and come back and
deliver tho mail next day (Saturday).
This service would give us direct connection for mails both ways. During the
last six months we have had a large number of new settlers located within a distance of ten miles from the Prairie post
office. There have'been ahout 100 of
them, and most pf them have come from
Slaces whero they wero accustomed to a
ally mail. Of course thoy do not look
for bucIi facilities in a new country, but
they must be much struck with tho difference iu tho service here aud where
they have come from, Tho new settlements along the New Westminster and
Yale trunk road also deserve some attention. It is tho universal opinion that
the mall from Upper Sumas down should
bo carried over the wagon road, as it is
now carried on the railway aud ia most
unsatisfactory. Tho people of Langley
havo asked for two mails a week by tho
road. This service should be carried by
stage, us the establishment of a regular
Bta.e Hue would be a great convenience.
Last summer a stage line was started between Now Westminster and Semiahmoo,
and if such an enterprise had tho mail
tho whole service could almost be accomplished by it.—Yours, ke,
Prairie,

use.

MARVELOUS RAPIDITY OF IT8 CONSTRUCTION
Corrospondeuee of the cilobc,
Lauoan, Oct, 0.—Though tho actual
mileage of track laid on this div ision during the summer cannot be compared
with that of 1883, still this season's performance is oven inore incredible than
that of last. Until late last fall it was
undecided whioh pass to descend the
Rocky Mountains by ou the western
slope—the Kicking Horse or the Howso.
The former was eventually chosen ou
account of its being vory much 'shorter
and easier. The Kicking Horse River
(winch flows down the pass) has its
source at Kicking Horne Lake, three
miles below the summit of Rockies, and
flows in a south-westerly direction for
about forty-five miles, when it empties
into tho Columbia River, at the lower
end of the Kicking Horse Pass, The
Howse Pass starts a few miles east of tho
Kicking Horso, runs north-westerly tor
about thirty-six miles, then bends to the
south-west, and strikes th - Columbia a
little below the other. The abandoned
pass is ninety miles long, or thirty-six
longer than tlie accepted one, The indecision as to which pass to adopt left tho
entire. location of tlio Kicking Horse
Pass to bo performed this year, As the
first twelve miles down the pass contain
some very heavy work, which would require considerable time to accomplish, it
was defined necessary to run In
A TEMPORARY LINE
In order that the track and supplies
might bo pushed on towards Kamloops,
that the Company might reach that
place by tiie time stipulated in their contract. The Government has reserved
sufficient funds to construct the permanent line. On this short temporary line
is tbe heavy grade which is bo much commented upon. This grade was caused
by running down into the valloy and
then up again, instead of keeping up on
tho lull side and gradually descending, as
the permanent Hue will do. It might be
remarked here, that en no part of the
permanent line iB the grade steeper than
should be expected iu so mountainous n
country. It is, in fact, much less than
that employed on any other of the transcontinental railroads. The last fivo miles
of the Kicking Horse Puss contained numerous engineering difficulties, which
have beon surmounted. Here three tunnels, 275, 300, and 500 feet long respectively, have been pierced and excellently
finished off. Within this short distance
the river will be spanned four times by
Howe trusses. Six crossings wero originally resolved on, but two wore saved
by diverting the river. Indeed, bo diflicult did this piece appear, tliat old contractors laughed at the idea of Mr. Ross
attempting to got the track past in 1SS1,
but now the laugh is the other way, for
by tho middle of October the grading iu
the Rocky Mountains will bo finished,
and tho track will, in alt probability, be
laid thirty miles beyond the Kicking
Horso Pass before December. On the
2Sth ot September the locomotive waB
thirty-one miles down the Kicking Horse
Pass; by tho middle of October it will
probably bo ten miles farther, and one
month later twenty miles moro will be
added to the distance from the summit
of tlio Rockies, The projective point for
the track this year will be at the crossing of Beaver River, 70 miles from the
summit. When this place is reached,
seventy-five miles of track will have
been laid in 1881. To give a glimmering
impression of the
WUl'BS DOUSSKSH OF THIS FBAT,
every inch of this ground has been located, staked out bythe construction engineers, let to contractors,' graded, kc.,
kc, since last March. The accomplishment of such an undertaking would be
considered wonderful even hi a civilized
country. How muoh moro bo must it be
then out hero iu a densely wooded chain
of mountains through which not even a
trail, much less a road or habitation, existed last winter, and when thero is uo
way of getting supplies to the front except from the end of the track ? Early
in the season a tolt rood had to be constructed, and over this crude highway
all the contractors' and engineers' outfits
and supplies had to be packed on the
backs of mules over mountains, swamps,
rivers, across many a turbulent stream
and through many a dense forest. Means
of communication being essential a telegraph wire was put up as soon as possible and kopt far ahead of the track.
Mail couriers aro despatched up and
down the line three times a week. The
amount of earth and rook moved up to
the end of August since March is estimated at 1,277,722 cubic yards. In the
same time five tunnels have been pierced
in the Kicking Horse Pass and two started in the Columbia Valley. Iu addition,
numerous large bridges, trestles, culverts
have been designed, aud tho timber t-ik-
jcn out of the forests, hewn or sawn, and
framed for thom since last April. Among
the bridges there nro nine crossings of
the Kicking Horse River and one of the
Columbia. The largest trestle yet erected is that over the Otter Tail Creek. It
is 500 feet long and 104 feet high. Besides these the amount of timber used iu
culverts, small bridges, aud treaties .is
something enormous.
IN SPITE OF UNHEARD-OF OBSTACLES
the engineers and contractors have had
to fight against being bo far ahead of
civilisation, and they have performed
their work with astounding rapidity.
They havo in all places put in truly first-
class work, and even in an open and civi
lined country this would be considered a
well-built road. The embankments nre
well made and always of an ample width;
retaining walla and riprapping aro introduced wherever necessary; tlie outs aro
made as oven and carried back as far as
oould be desired, whilo small stones,
slates, fragments of rock, gravel, ami
detritus form excellent ballasts for surfacing. To givo au approximate idea of
tho amount of supplies which pas-'
through tho C. V. R. stores at the cud of
tho track hence over the mountains ou
mules' backs:—Eight car loads of oats,
seven of hay, and two and a half of flour
pass over ami nro consumed weekly. The
value of thu supplies whioh pass ovor tho
end of the track has amounted to $120,-
000 a month this summer. This, of
course, is independent of what the contractors bring out themselves. When
all of these difficulties are considered,
and it is remembered that betweon
March and December, 1884, seventy-five
milea of the C, P. R. will havo been located and constructed through a country
whieh was not even broken by a trail
much leas a road, people need not bo
alarmed at tho prospect uf the road uot
being completed in tho time specilied.
Aa a contrast—all tlio
.   OTHER i'ACIMC RAILROADS
Were preceded by well-made roads, and
obtained easy access to various parts of
their lines instead oi being compelled to
work from one end only. Even the other divisions of tho C. P. K. have had
more facilities in this respeot than thia.
On Lake Superior approach by water
can be obtained at almost any point.
Onderdonk alao was able to send supplies
down to the front by water. But here
no road, no habitation, and no navigable
waterway previously existed, so that
every article of food or clothing, ovory
implement, tn fact everything needed by
man or beast had to lie brought to the
end of track by train ami then packed
across tlie mountains on the backs of
milk's. While so much energy has been
expended in the Rockies, tho .Selkirk and
gold ranges have not been left alone.
The entire location to Kamloops is nearly
finished aud construction engineers are
busily engaged ou tbe eastern slope of
tho Selkirks, where the work will bo
vigorously pushed Ahead throughout the
winter, especially as It Is much easier
and cheaper to get out timber and transport supplies when the snow is on the
ground. The credit of this extraordinary work is due, of course, to the Manager of Construction of this division, Mr.
Jas, Robs, who has not only displayed
his own abilities as an engineer and manager, hut has also succeeded in securing
the services of none but first-class engineers and contractors. Tlio contractors
are old hands aud nearly all of the engineers arc specialists in the work at which
they are employed such as locating, tunnelling, bridging, eto. The supply and
operating departments ure also filled by
thoroughly capable men. In conclusion,
any person reviewing the work done this
season would at once conclude that the
management of the Canadian Pacific are
thoroughly iu earnest in their desire to
complete the work they have undertaken
within tlie time mentioned in their contract. The question of policy in building
the line ahead of civilization may be
open to criticism, but still it may be said
in favor of rapid construction that the
work has to be done, and that time and
interest are saved to the company by
having the work done so (prickly.

London, Oct. 20.—The first of a
scries of meetings in behalf of the Ticliborne claimant was held to-night. The
claimant delivered an address. He declared that his persecution by the government was ascribable to the fact that
Mr, Gladstone's daughter had married
into the. Tichborne family, and stated
that he hod determined to devote hiB
life to obtaining justice for himself and
children, A resolution was passed, demanding tlmt the claimant be restored
to his rightful position.
Toronto, Oct. 31. -The Scott Act was
submitted to the electors yesterday In
four counties iu the province of Ontario,
namely, Bruce, Dufferin, Huron, and
Prince Edward, while in York county,
New Brunswick, a poll was taken on
tho petition for the repeal of the act.
In the first threo named of the Ontario
counties, while the returns are yet not
quite complete, sufficient is known to
ensure the success of the measure by
overwhelming majorities, the figures, so
far as received, being respectively: Bruce,
713; Dufferiu, 884; Huron, 1,508; which
in each case aie likely to he increased
when tho full returns are received,' In
any case, however, the victory is assured. In Prince Edward the reverse is
the cose, the measure being rejected by
the narrow majority of 126. In York
county, New Brunswick, while the
measure has been sustained by a working majority, its advocates cannot re-
?;ard the vote with that complete satis-
action with whioh they can contemplate
their glorious victory iu this province,
for while ia 1878, when the aot was first
submitted for adoption, it was carried by
a majority of 1,005 votes, the majority
cast yesterday iu its favor and against
repeal is estimated at three hundred.

15th, 17th, 18th, and 10th districts, to
elect Grant, It ia a sorry sequel to a
daring game of politics, of which Mr,
Grant s nomination was the beginning.
Frederick S, Gibbs, Republican candidate for mayor, proved a veritable
dummy in the contest, having been cut
right and left by Republican voters.
New York, Nov. 0—The following
has been issued : The total prohibition
voto wilt aggregate 200,000. Four years
ago it was less than 11,000, and it has
decided tho presidential contest in New
York. Cleveland's majority is about
2,000. Official returns will uot materially
change the figures. The prohibition vote
in now York is fully '.'5,000. The prohibition .vote in Alleghany, Monroe and
Orleans counties alone would have car
ried the state for Blaine, if cost for him.
The prohibitionists havo stood up tu be
counted, and have rebuked the insult
offered temperance men at the Chicago
Con volitions; und this voto has made
prohibition a national issue, which will
not go out of national politics tilt beer
shops and drinking have gone from
America. The Republican party having
been removed from power to the graveyard, prohibition will at once organise to
miry whisky democrats fonryoars abend.
t am fully satisfied we have no choice
between the candidates of the old parties, but were fighting to elect an issue,
and we have won. 'lhe work to make
tho Issue win in 1888 has already begun.

London, Nov. 8.-The Times says it
!b unlikely that there will be any serious attempt to contest the result of the
election. Blaine is a man of great gifts,
and an accomplished speaker, but he had
unhappily Identified himself with speculative Hchemcs and inonied interests.
Cleveland has few brilliant qualities, his
Eublic career has been brief and modest,
ut he has shown some sense of public
duty, and will faithfully discharge his
trust without favoring either magnates,
or Wall street, or demagogues. It is
to be hoped that Bayard will accept
office under Cleveland. Bayard is a man
of the highest integrity and ability, and
will not discredit tho bast traditions of
Amorican diplomacy. The Democrats
must now show that they are true to
ths principles of political purity and
administrative reform. Recent electoral
conduct, especially on tho, Republican
side, has disclosed the existence of widespread corruption which has alarmed
honorable mon in all parties.

silver land, 32 deg. S. lat., ond 142

miles from Adelaide, nnd twice that

thousatida, in apite of the heavy expenses of travel, and the still heavier
oneB of living iu a country hitherto unpeopled, and which, unless wells or
springs are discovered, may entail on
them terrible suffering for want of water. In any case South Australia, so
long laboring under a depression of
trade, is congratulating herself on the
sudden influx of visitors and fortune.
The land about Silverton ia rising to
quite fabulouB prices. Silver discoveries are also reported from Emma-
ville, New South Wales, whence Mr.
T. W. E. David, Government Geological Surveyor, states that six aasays
made in a sample of the mineral at
Tent Hill yielded silver at the average
rate of 402 oza. to the ton, and gold at

ville.

A REMARKABLE STORY.
"I thought U was not quite so certain as people seemed to believe."
"Doyou mean to say Harry would persevere)
"I mean that she would accept him,
Aunt Catherine. She is not a girl, so
far aa I can judge, of whom one could
ever be so aure.."
"In the namo of wonder," cried
out Hiss Vernon, "what doea she expect? Good heavens! where is she to
get another such chance again? To
refuse Harry, for a girl in her position,
is madness, Where doea she think
ahe will get another such offer] Upon
my word," said Catherine, with a little laugh. "I can scarcely Help being
sorry for nor poor little mother. Such
a disappointment for poor Mrs. John
—her White House and her recovered
'position' tlint she loves so dearly, and
all hor comforts—1 could find it in
my heart to be very sorry for hor,"
she aaid, with another little laugh.
Edward gave a glance up at her
from his plate, on which he had (he
air of boing intent. Tho young man
thought he saw through Cathorine, as
ahe thought she saw through all the
other inmates of her littlo world.
What he did see through waa the au*
?iurficial badness which her position
lad made; but he had not so much as
a glimmering of the othor Catherine,
the nobler creature who stood behind;
nnd though ho smiled and assented, a
sensation of disgust came into his
heart. He, too, had his comedy of
human nature, which aecrotly, under
cover of his complacency mid agreement with Catherine's opinion, he regarded with the bitterest and angriest
scorn. What an extraordinary shock
would it have boen for his companion,
who felt herself to sit in tho placo of
the audience, seeing the puppets playing their pranks upon the stage aud
exhibiting all their fooleries, to know
that Bhe herself was tho notor, turned
outside in nnd soon through in nll
her devices by this boy whom Bhe
loved 1
"A grandson of Captain Morgan!
Welt, that is not much to meet us at
our wedding-dinner—at leant, if it is
not our wedding-dinner— Oh, I
know there was our stato une, and we
met all the old fogies whom I detest!"
cried Mrs. Algernon Morridew, bom
Ellen Vernon; "but this is only the
second, and the second ia quite as important as the first. She should have
asked the county tirst, to introduce us
properly, and then the town; but
Aunt Catherine is one of tho people
who nevor do what's expected of
them. Besides, I don't want to meot
hor relations on the other side.
They're nobodies. She spends quantities of money upon them, which she
hus no business to do, seeing it's the
Vernons' money and not liera at all,
if you come to that."
"Come, Nell," aaid her husband,
with a laugh. He was a dark young
man, as was to be expected—seeing
that ahe was bo fair a young woman—-
good-looking, with whiskers, which
were the fashion in those days, of a
bushy blackness, and hair which suggested pomade. "Come, Nell," he
aaid, "strike fair, Catherine Vernon
does a great deal of good with her
money, and doesn't spare upon tho
Vernons—all the town knows that."
"Oh no, she doesn't spare upon the
■Vernons—all those useless old creatures that aho has up there in that
horrid, old-fashioned house! I think
if ahe did a little more for real relations, and left those old fogies nlonu,
it would bo more like— Expecting
one to call upon them, and take all
sorts of trouble! And look at poor
old Harry kept with his uoso at his
desk forever."
"Poor old Harry is very lucky, I
think. Fair play is a jewel. If she
doesn't do all you want, who do you
expect would!"
"Yuu, of course!" cried Ellen, ns
was natural, and thuy wero so newly
married that he thought it vury protty:
"that is the good of you; uud if yon
go in for Aunt Catherine, too, when
you know I can't endure her-—"
"Of course the good of me is to do
whatever you want," he said, with
various honey-moon demonstrations;
"but ns for going in for Aunt Catherine—you must know this, Nolly, that
I'm very proud of being connected
with Catherine Vernon, I have heard
of her all my life ns a sort of goddess,
you know. You niUBt not put tno off
it all at once—I couldn't be put off it,
Thero, now, thero's nothing ta look
sulky about."
"You are such an old Redborough
person," Ellen said, with a little pout;
which waB very true. He was not at
all a good match for a Vernon; but
his whiskers—things much admired in
those days—and her self-will worsted
all opposition. He wus uo moro than
the son of tho perfectly respectable
and very well-to-do solicitor, who was
universally reBpected in Redborough;
and though Algernon had boen in town
and sown his wild oats, he had nover
entirely got out of his mind tho instinctive conviction that Redborougli
was tho center of the world; and to
feel himself within the charmed circle
in which Catherine Vernon moved
was a promotion which was intoxicating to the young man. Not even his
devotion to his pretty little wife, which
waa great, could bring him to disown
that allegiance to Catherine Vernon
which every Redborough man was
born with. It was n sort of still more
intoxicating proof of tho dignity he
had oome to that tho pretty wife heraelf turned up her little nose a*. Catherine. That Mrs. Algernon Bhould bu
ao familiar with the highest excellence
known to them aa to venture to do
thia wns, to the whole fumily of the
Merridews, an admiration—just aa a
family entirely loyal might bo flittorcd
by having a princess among them who
ahould permit herself to laugh at tlie
majesty of the king; but thia did not
shake hor own fidelity. And Algernon, though he ventured, with bated
breath, to say "Aunt Catherino" when
lie spoke of her in his own family,
had not gut over his veneration for
Mi» Vertion. He had taken hur to
dinner oa the occasion of the great
banqnot, which Ellen described bo
lightly, with a sensation bordering
upon the hysterical. Rapture and
pride und panic were in it. He did
not know, according to the vulgar
description, whether he were on hii
head or hii heels, and hia voico mado
a buzzing In hii own ean aa he talked.
The aecond time waa to be in tho intimacy of the domestic circle—if it
had wen to meet a crossing-i weeper
H would atill have beon a bewildering
gratification; but nil tho more, his
wife'i criticism, and her iiidifferunvo
and even discontent with the notice
which to him teemed to overpowering
an honor, pleated the young mun,
Bhe felt henelf every bit na goud aa
Catherine, and yet aho waa hie-Mra,
Algernon Merridewl     The though;
was  ono  adapted   to make his head
swim with pride and delight.
It was entirely a family party, as
Catherine had said, and a very small
ono. The Miss Vornon-Ridgways had
been invited to make the number
even, and thoir preparations for the
unusual honor had taken up four daya
at least. When they sailed into the
drawing-room at tho Grange, having
Bpent ten minutes in shaking out the
flounces and arranging the flowers and
ribbons with which they were ornamented, it would be impossible to attempt to describe tlie disguBt of the
bride. She turned her eyes upon her
husband, who, for his part, was in a
stato of beatitude not to be disturbed
by trifles, with a look of indignant
rage which he did not understand,
"To think she should ask those old
things to meet us/ I declare I have a
great mind to go right away," she
whispered to Harry, who was more
sympathetic. Harry allowed that it
was almost beyond bearing, "But I
wouldn't make a quarrel if I were
you," he said. In tne mean time the
sisters went up beaming to their dear
Catherine, whom they kissed with devotion. How well she was looking!
how becoming her dress wasl but that
lovely lace would be becoming to any
one] they cried, Catherine received
all these compliments with a smile;
and Bho took great pleasure in Ellen's
disguBt, and tho way in which alio
turned her ear instead of'her check to.
the salutations of the cousiiiB, who
woro rapturous in their admiration of
hor iu all her bridal finery.
Tlie entry of tho stranger, who was
unknown to any of them, made a dl-
version. Roland Ashton when ho was
visible in the full light of Miss Vernon's drawing-room, turned out, in
appearance at least, a very valuable
addition to tho society. Ellen, who
was critical, and inclined by nature to
a poor opinion of old Captain Mor-
gaii's grandson, looked at him with
astonished, and indeed reluctant, approval. His whiskers were not so
thick or so black as Algernon's; but
he had a fine mass of dark hair, wavy,
and rather longer than is now permit-
tod by fashion, tine features, nnd dark
eyes, with a paleness which was considered very interesting in those days.
He was much taller and of inure imposing aspect than Edward, whoso stature was not great; he was far more
intelligent than Harry; ultugetlior, of
tho four young mon paesent, his was,
no doubt, the most noticeable figure.
They all appraised him mentally as ha
camo in—Cathorino first of all, with a
sensation of pride that the ono individual who was hor relation, without
being tho relation of her family, was u
creditable novelty to introduce among
thorn; the others, with various degrees of quickened curiosity and
grudging. Tho grudge was intensified
in the persons of the sisters, who could
not onduro this interloper. They had
felt it their duty to draw the line at
tho Morgana, long ago, and it was all
thoy could do to behave with propriety
at Catherine's table when thoy wore
Heated beside the descendant of thu
old people on whom Cathorine spent
hev money in what they felt to bo an
entirely unjustifiable way. Thoy were
the only persona present who kept up
their grudge to the ond.
In Ellon's case it disappeared with
the clear perception of hia good looks.
But, when Mr. Ashton offered his arm
to Miss Matilda Vornon-Rtdgway, tho
look with which alio received the offered courtesy was enough to freeze
any adventurous young man into
stono. It d<d not, however. It made
him ull but laugh as he glanced nt
Catherine, whu, for her part, contemplated hur cousins with much gratification. Miss Matilda placed the end
of her linger upon the young man's
nnn. She kept at as great a distance
as possible ns Bhe crossed the hall by
hia side. To thu little speech about
tho weather whicli he thought it his
duty to make her, she returned a sort
of inarticulate reply—a monosyllable,
but conveying no meaning. When
shu was seated at table alio tiling herself, so tu speak, upon her neighbor at
the other side, who, ns it happened,
was Hany Vernon, and who was not
prepared for the honor. All this wus
to Cathorine as good as a play.
"What a climate, and what a poky
old place this Redborough is," said
Ellon, prepnring to load the conversation, as she finished her soup. She
spoke, apparently, tu Edward, but in
reality to the company, which was not
too large for general conversation.
1'It is dreadful to come back here iu
the beginning bf winter from abroad,
I declare I quito enry you, you people
who have nover been abroad; you
don't know tho difference, Bright
sunshine all day long, and bands playing and tho boat of music, and ull your
friends to talk to, sitting out under
the trees, Cmnparo that with Redborough, whero, beyond a few tiresome little dinner-parties, and perhaps
threo dances at Christmas- •"
"Tho While house used tu be a
great addition to tho cheerfulness of
the place," said Edward. "Harry
will have no heart tu keep it up by
himsolf now you have left him."
"Oh, Hnrry shall marry," said El*
lun; "I have niadu up my mind to
that; and ns soon as wo hnvo got quito
settled, I mean to sot things ngoing. I
mean to havo a Thursday, Aunt Oath
erino. We shall be glad if you'll
come. It ia to bo a I7i« Dansantv,
which is quito a novelty here. You
loam so much buttor about all thoso
things abroad,"
"Where is abroad 7" snid Raland, in
an undertone which was so confidential and intimate that, had ho been
anybody else, Miss Mutilda must have
yioldod to its seduction. As it was,
sho unly gnve him a look of surprise
at his ignorance, and cleared hor throat
and shook her bracelets iu ordor to be
able to strike in.
"A The Damtnte is exactly tho
kind of on tort amnion t that suits mo,"
Catherine said.
"Yes, won't it be nice1)"' said Ellen,
unconscious. "I learned nll the figures
of the cotillon, which is the moat
amusing thing to ond up with, and I
made Algy louni it, Ab soon us over
our house is ready wo shnll start. It
will bo a now feature in sooiety. As
for Harry, till lie's married he'll have
to be content with bachelor's dinners,
for I can't always be leaving Algy to
look after him."
Here Harry murmured something,
stammering, and with a blush, to the
intent thut the bachelor's dinners would
lust a long time.
"We don't see you bo often at our
plum as wo used to do, Mr. Hany,"
said Miss Matilda, sweetly, "It used
tu bo quito a pleasure to wntoh for
you; and the summer evenings were
so tempting, woren't thoy? Oh, fle!
it ia vory naughty to love and to rido
away. Wo always said that was what
wai likely to happen, didn't we?" aho
iiaid to hor stater, on tho other side of
the table,
