Worse than Failure.
In previous articles w-i showtstl
cloirlv that tlit* DeCottmos miisinn
to England had bean a lamentulilo
failure, proving hy axti-actR from liia
own letter to Lord Kiinlurley hat
lis tvaHutUnd admttt-vrkit to U a
failure. We promised to go a step
farther, and iliow from the published
returns that it. more than failed—
that it resulted in actual injury to
the catiso it had primarily in view.
It is to the fulfilment of that pro
mm that we shall now procned. It
may he premised that up to the
period to which we are about to refer the party now in power had
never altogether discouraged the
hope so fondly cherished on the
other tide of the gulf, that the Canadian Pacific Railway might ultimately find its way to Esqnimalt,
and that, consequently, the Island
line would constitute a link in the
great trail scon tin en tit I railway.
Some years ttgo, in 1879 we helievp,
Mr, DeCosmos was indiscreet.*pioiigh
to force an adverse vote in Parliament on the Island railway question.
nnd whan tlie division was taken lie
found himself alone with liis seconder—a good mttmed French Ci'iiiidiflij,
who didn't know where Vancouver
Island was. Last year, armed with
authority from our Legislature, Mi
DeCosmos, a«ain indiscreet, pressed
Sir John Macdoimld into making
statements never before made hy
any Canadian Minister, and which
place the question of tin Island railway on a much less favorable footing than it ever stood hefore
which, in fact, completely strip it of
alt claim to be regarded as any pnt-t
of the great national railway. In
the Canadian Order ill-Council, sent
to meet Mr. DeCosmos at Loiuloi
it is stated that "the select inn of
"Burrard Inlet was finally made ns
"the terminus on the Pacific coast
"of the Canadian Pacific Bail way,
"rendering unnecessary the lino lie
"tween Nanaimo nnd Esqnimalt."
Referring to the suggestion of Lord
Carnarvon, that a lino might be
built between these two points, it
aays:—"But this wns not necessarily
"a |tart of tho Canadian Pacific
"Railway, and not essential to the
"fulfilment of the conditions uf the
"union with British Columhtu. * *
* * * Lord Carnarvon's sugges
"lions were entitled to every respect,
''but although adopted liy the Government of the day they never
"received the sanction of the Parlia-
"ment of the Dominion, and never
"acquired tha force of a national
"compact. On the contrary, in the
"session of 1875, with the view of
"seeking to give utt'ect to these
" 'terms/ a Bill having been iutro
"duced by the Government into tho
"Canadian House of Commons providing for the construction of the
"Esqnimalt and Namiimo lint'
"step which would not have been
"necessary, it may ha observed, had
"that Hue formed necessarily part of
"the Canadian Pacific Railway—the
"Bill, though passed by the House
"of Commons, was lost in the Sen-
"ate, and consequently Parliament-
"ary sanction refused to the con-
"struction of what was regarded hy
"the majority of the Senate as a
"Provincial work quite unnecessary
"to tha fulfilment of the Terms of
"Union with British Columbia.
-* ' * * Parliament has not nti-
"thorized the construction of tha
"Nanaimo and Esqnimalt line, and
"in view of the large expenditure
"involved iu the building of tho
"Canadian Pacific from Callander
"Station to the Pacific Ocean at
"Hurrai'd Inlet, it is not probable
"that it would do so. The Com-
"tnltlce desire to observe that there •&)-
"ists in the adjacent waters of the
"Straits of Geortjut sheltered water
"communication, open all the year
'•round, quite adequate to the needs of
"the population of the Island." That

VOLUME 21
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, MARCH 15, 1882.
NUMBER 21
is, indeed, strange language coming
from Sir John, the senior Member for
Victoria city, nnd can on y be uc
counted for on the supposition that
lie was badgered ami threatened
with an appeal to the Queen at a
time when he had done and was
doing for Columbia the very utmost
that Parliament could be induced to
sanction. No person familiar with
Sir John's friendliness in the past
can read these extracts without feeling convinced that he has been indiscreetly pressed beyond the line of
forbearance uud goaded into making
statements never before emanating
from Ottawa. The treasured "Carnarvon Terms" he flippantly refers
to as mere "suggestions," in no
sense binding on Canada, the fondly
cherished hallucination that the Island Hue of the imagination can ever
be regarded as forming a part of the
Canadian Pacific Railway, he ruthlessly sweeps into oblivion, and, with
a refinement of cruelty, he tells the
people of Vancouver Island plainly
that they have no more need of a
railway than a coach has of a fifth
wheel—that the magnificent waterways of the Straits of Georgia are
quite adequate to their needs ! Nor
is all tins the mere hasty utterance
of n single Minister. It is the deliberate conclusion of tin; (iovetti-
niant, embodied in a formal Onler-
lh-Couiioil. We nre far from rejoicing over these conclusions. Wo do
not oven agree with much that is in
litem ; but- we tire bound to say that
the fuolish, illtitned and most indiscreet appeal to the Queen lias produced just such fruit as we anticipated and predicted, DeCoamos
went to Loudon to enforce what he
was so fond of calling the "Carnarvon Terms" ; but ho has succeeded
in burying them so deep that no
politician can ever dig them up. We
are not surprised at the result of the
DeCosmos mission; but wo were
surprised that there sho'uUl have been
found, even in the present Legislature, a majotity stupid enough to
uuthoiize and promote it.

Recent borings indicate the axis-
tenco of workable coal-scums underlie*' h London.
Observations by M. S'Uilanie, ol Ton-
loitsd; show tli-.it. something very like
tuburculot-is in produced in the lungs
or dtftja bv a iicmuiuid worm
It has lately Keen proven ejtpei'i*
man tally that calomel may lie deeoni-
posed in thu human system with tlie
formation of corrosive sublimate—a
powerful poison.
Prof. Blyth, lecturing at Rlangow*,
has called attention to the adaptability
of the oxy hydrogen light for general
use. The illumination is very brilliant
and beautiful, the gasps may be stored
and delivered iu the same maimer ai
coal-gas, and he believes that the system may he made economical bv using
wind or water power to produce the
gases.
In view of the lavages of the phylloxera, which have bo seriously interfered with winegrowing, a French
agriculturist 1ms sought to discover ft
substitute for the vine, ami is said to
have obtained very good results wit li a
variety of red beet. This beet yields
a wine which is said to be equal to
many of southern growth, and the
plant has tlio advantage of being adapted to all soils and climates.
l-Uforences to the microbes—or mi-
croiui'pic organisms of fermentation
aud disease—have become so frequent
that this classification of their varieties
by Mr. W. Hamle may be of interest:
1. Microbes which appear as points are
called monads, moiiem or' microcoria.
They are motionless, and may be regarded as the spores of other microbes,
2. Motionless linear microbes — the
lar.fcridians and the baedti. To them
belongs Bacillus anthracis, which produces the dreaded splenic fever of cattle and sheep. 3. Cylindrical mobile
microbes, having rounded ends or contracted in the middle so as to form an
8, are the bacteria proper. Among
them is Bacterium termo of putrefaction, the commonest of all. 4. Flex-
tiotia mobile microbes. They look
and act like eels, and differ but little
fronuthe equally active lacteria. They
are the vibrios. 6, Spiral microbes,
resembling a cork-screw, and mobile;
Spirilla spirochetoe. Thoir presence in
human blood appears to be connected
with intermittent fever, fi. Microbes
with heads, very active, having globules larger and mote refractive than
the rest of the body at one or both
ends. These glubnles are apparently
spores ready to bu detached from a
bacterium—Bacterium capitatum. lie-
sides these six principal states, the
microbes form agglomerations tn which
their appearance is somowhat changed,
these masses receiving distinctive
names. There looms to be no way at
present of distinguishing between a
disease-producing lncterium and a
harmless one by light.

Organic Falsehood Exposed.
On Thursday the Colonist made a
most damaging attack upon the
"Walkem Administration for having
suppressed the greater part of Lord
lCimberley's despatch to Lord Lome,
because its publication would have
mado still more manifest the utter
failure of the DeCosmos mission.
Proceeding to expose to ridicule tho
claim put forward by the Government that the curly construction of
tlie Emory-Moody section is tlie result of that mission, the Colonist
said :—"But tlie romance was knock-
"ed out of tbe claim when it was
"shown that Mr. Marcus Smith and
"his railway engineers left Ottawa
"to locate tlie Port Moody section
"before the B. 0. missionary hail left
"Ottawa for London * and that previous to the passage of the petition
"to England by this House the party
"of engineers for the Port Moody
'■section had actually been formed at
"Ottawa." On Friday the Standard,
in a wretched attempt to "help a
a lame dog over the stile," says that
tbe Kimberley despatch was not
published with the other papers because there wasn't room for it in the
supplement; and yet the supplement
contained three columns of dead advertisements ! Replying to the bogus
claim exposure, the Standard said:—
"The assertion made by the Colonist.
"with reference to the movements of
"survey parties and Mr. Marcus
"Smith are tota'ly erroneous. Mr.
"DcCoRtnos left Ottawa on the 21st
"May and was iu London on tbe 31st
"May," on wliich day be addressed a
"letter to an oificinl of the Imperial
"Government. Mr. Marcus Smith
"did not leave Ottawa till about the
"middle of June, or two weeks after
"Mr. DeCosmos arrived iu London.
"It is best to set our contemporary
"right on these points, as he lias us-
"serted that the surveyors left Otta-
"wa for this Province before Mr.
"DeCosmos left for London, which
"is totally untrue. These false
"statements are made with a view
"to deprive the Government of the
"credit of having expedited tbe construction of the Port Moody section
"of the line by means of the petition
"to the Queen." Taking the keynote from its cliief, the rabbit-eared
( local organ, in its issue of Saturday,
referring to the benificent results of
the mission, said :—"But the imme-
"diate advantagn to tlie Province
"will bo the commencement and
"completion of the line to Port
"Moody, which might have remain-
"ed in abeyance for years, if the petition to Her Majesty had not been
"sent forward and pressed to a definite conclusion." Having painted
one of its characteristic pictures of
the Port Moody of the future, with
its endless blocks of cut stono buildings, and yet, stiangely enough,
drawing its supplies from New
Westminster, it says :—"All this
"might have been deferred for five
"or six years if it had not been for
"the petition to Her Majesty which
"baa been so bitterly condemned by
"tht opposition papers." Th« two
organs make out a strong case, it
must be admitted, the one with its
dates and tha other with its positive
assertions. True, Sir John Macdonald informed Lord Kimberley, before
Mr. DeCosmos had an interview
with him at all, "That it is the inten-
"tion of tho Dominion Government
"to complete, without delay, those
"portions of tbe Pacific railway, iii-
"cludiny the line to Port Moody,
"which the Dominion Government
"has engaged to construct and to
"hand over to the Syndicate, and
"that directions webe sometime ago
"given for the final location survey
"of the line to Port Moody; arid that
"this survey is now in progress and
"will, it is understood, be finished in
"time to be submitted with the esti-
"mate of cost to tho Canadian par-
"liament at its next session." Hut
what of tlmtl Both of Wallcem's
organs tell n different story—one
with which the above is utterly irreconcilable, is, iu fact, in direct conflict i and, inasmuch as tho veracity
of tbe organs ia altogether above
suspicion, on* is abut up to tho unpleasant conclusion that the Premier
of Canada deliberately lied to tho
SaoWtarj? of State 1   If the organs
are to be believed, that is tho logical
and inevitable conclusion—humiliating as it must be to Canadians in
general, and the many and ardent
admirers of Sir John in particular.
But, fortunately for the Canadian
Premier, and unfortunately for the
organs and their masters, we are in a
position to produce evidence, conclusively proving the case made out
as above, to be a wilful and impudent fabrication, a gross misstatement of facts. Here is the proof:
On Friday, the 10th June, 1881,
Mr. Marcus Smith and his engineering stall' arrived in this city from
Victoria. On Thursday, the 2nd
June, they arrived nt Victoria, from
San Francisco, on the steamship
Idaho. We have not at hand tbo
means of tracing their movements
beyond tlmt point, but it may safely
bo concluded that, having readied
Victoria on tbe 2nd of June, they
must have left Ottawa about tbe
middle of May—just one month
earlier than the Standard say? they
left, just one*week before DeCosmos
left Ottawa for London, and just one
month before his interview with
Lord Kimberley ! The facts and
dales we have given are incontrovertible, and tbe proof can be found
in the columns of the organs themselves. Nny, their own columns
prove more. They prove that the
work of organizing tho engineering
parties hud commenced before the
petition to the Queen had an existence ! Thus it will be seen that
what Sir John Macdonald told Lord
Kimberley wns strictly true,and that
the Standard, while professing to
correct tbe true statement in the
Colonist, was guilty of promulgating
a pack of falsehoods for the purpose
of misleading the public and with
the vain hope of bolstering up a
moribund ministry at the expense
of tbo veracity of the Premier of
Canada ; aiid it has also been seen
how assiduously its satellite here re
echoes tbe falsehoods. Jt may bo
imagined to what terrible straits
Ministers must have been brought
when they suppressed Lord Kinibcr-
ley's most important dispatch, inserted a deliberate falsehood in the
Speech from the Throne, and instructed their organ-grinders to fulminate the grossest misrepresentation
of facts, and all this with the hope
of securing a morsel of credit for
having been instrumental in expediting railway woiv in this section
of tbe country. AM else having
failed theiu, they gritfp at that as a
drowning man is said to grasp at
straws. But they have been detected, exposed, pillioried, and are now
objects of ridicule aud contempt!
Editorial Notes.
There is observable a growing disposition on tho part of the rural municipalities to extend their sphere of
usefulness by undertaking tbe expenditure of Legislative grants within
their bounds. Looking at tbo matter
in the light of the experience of recent
years, we are inclined to think that
these expenditures would be more judiciously and economically made by
the Councils than by the Government.
Indeed, it is in accordance with the
principles of self government tlmt the
construction of local roads and bridges
should be iu the hands of the municipal councili. It may be said that the
experience of the working of munici
pal institutions in some of the rural
districts has scarcely been sueh as to
justify investing them with increased
responsibilities; but there is this view
to be taken, that the moment you increase the importance nnd responsibilities of these bodies, that moment you
increase by just so much tho interest
aud care with which they will be regarded by tbe rate-payeri—of itself a
most desirable result. Make the position of Pveeve or Councillor moro important, and the ratepayers will be
more careful to elect the best man.
municipal bodies to get revenue by all
means within reach constitutes of itself a serious objection. And this
was the chief evil arising frum that
system in Ontario. Councils, in their
greed for revenue, were tempted to
issue licenses wholesale, and the result
was that healthy public opinion took
the matter out of their hands altogether. There is no reason for doubting
that similar l'esults would follow the
dangerous experiment here, and it will
bo tho true wisdom of'British Columbia to profit by the experience of other
countries, and not foolishly rush in
amongst breakers from which they
have just escaped.

We regret that wo cannot ni^reewith
one of the amendments whicli the
Legislature has been asked to make in
the Municipal law—that of vesting the
power of issuing liquor licenses in the
municipal councils. Looking st the
matter as an abstract theory, tho proposition looks fair and right. But,
somehow, the liquor trade is an exceptional one, and cannot always, with
safety and advantage, be governed by
genoral principles. Wo aro accustomed
to look to Ontario as a model province.
There was a time in tlio history of
Ontario when municipal councils were
intrusted with the liquor license business; but it was found Mmt the arrangement led to very great mischief.
Apart from the obvious quentionable-
ness of placing the issue and management of liquor licenses in tho hands
of those having to seek election every
year by tho votes of tlie very men
whose licenses they shall be culled

lb-ill Shed on Saturday evening, to the
delight of quite n largo number of our
citizeiia of both sexes, We understand
they will repeat the perforin,nice next
Saturday evening. Tho playing is very
highly spoken of, and the new hand
bids fair to attain preeminence iut'e
Province.
Dr. MoOaiie Honored.--A despatch from Homo, dated the 8th inst.,
Bays:—"At tho apfirouuliig Consistory
the Pope) will create seven Cardinal-),
including Must Reverend Dr, MeCabe,
Ariihblshop of Dublin It is understood this exprosies the Pope's approval of the etlorts of Archbishop MeCabe, made in behalf of tho OHUBO of
law and order iu Ireland.   .
The Lanui.ky Acoib8NT.-—It affords
us much pleasure to be able to announce
that Mr. Mackie is recovering from
the injuries sustained at the lire last
week. According to latest accounts
it was ascertained that uouo of (ho
injuries are likely tn prove permanent.
He hns already to some extent recovered his eyesight. The injuries to tho
father wuro happily only trilling.
Tub River Naviiiuio***. —The
steamer Reliance, Capt. Iniley, went
up the river on Saturday. She succeeded in getting as far as Murderer's
Bar, hut could nut go any farther,
owing to the low stage of the vrat«r.
Sho waited there for some 000 sheep
belonging to Messrs. Van Vulketilmrg
and left for this city yesterday where
she arrived about 8 o'clock last night.
Chinese Wave.—According to tho
Oregonian, railway firms have contracted for the early delivery of between five tlitiuifttid and ten thousand
Chinese direct from Hongkong. An
effort is to be nude to have them delivered before anti-Chinese legislation
takes ett'ect. Tho work of collecting
these coolies in Hongkong is going ou,
and three English steamers are already
under charter for their transport.
Chinese in 'Frisco.—Oh tho 4th a
minister anti-Chinese meeting was
hold in the open air. The Mayor presided, and tho leading people of the
city were present. It was estimated
that the meeting numbered bet-Aeon
thirty and forty thousand people. It
is intended to hold meetings all over
the state, for tho purpose of strengthening the hands of thuso who havo the
anti-Chinese measures in hand at
Washington.       	
Terribly Straitened. — When
Walkem virtually gave Sir John Mao-
dnnland the lio and made hiiorgan-in-
chief publish a deliberate falsehood
shout, the time of Mr. Marcus Smith
leaving Ottawa for British Columbia
last year, and all with the hope of
making tho people believe that, tho
DeCosmos mission expedited work on
the Emory-Moody section of tho railway, he must havo been driven to a
rbjsp&rate strait,
The Declaration.—At 1 o'clock
p. m. on Monday the Returning Officer
made the formal declaration. The
votes cast were as already published -
300 for Mr. Homer and 1G3 for Mr.
McLennan j giving the former a majority of 13B votes, by which majority
he was declared elected. The election
throughout appears to have been conducted in a manner reflecting the
greatest credit upon the Returning
Officer and his Deputies, and, indeed.
the voters too, only one ballot paper
having been spoiled;
Not So Bad.—There is, according
to the latest news, a strong probability
of the Dominion Parliament continuing
in session till about the end of April,
no that the newly electud Representative for this District will, after all,
be in time for throe or four weeks of
it. This is fortunate, and affords
ground for increased satisfaction that
the right man has been elected. Had
the result of the contest been otherwise, it would, indeed,, have been a
matter of littlo moment whether the
session was over or not.
Police Court.-- -The case of Constable Wiggins v. James Brenuan was
called. This, it will ba remembered,
is one of the liquor license cases so
long pending. Mr. Corbould appeared
for the defense, and Mr. MacElmen,
appearing for the prosecution, applied
for postponement, as he had only been
instructed a few moments before and
found that a material witness was absent. After a great deal of discussion,
some of it mora acrimonious than
there was any occasion for, a postponement till 2 o'clock on Thursday
(to-morrow) was granted. The other
cane, being in the name position, followed the same course.
Before the Committee. — Poor
Walkem's attempts to share the blame
of tho cement blunder with somebody
is calculated to inspire pity as well as
contempt In almost every answer
beforo the Committee he sought to
establish tbo equal culpability of his
predecessor; but whon it is borne in
mind that the dock contract was not
given out till nearly two years after
his predecessor left office, the utter
absurdity of such a contention will he
sufficiently obvious. Mr. Vernon never
had iho slightest occasion to ascertain
how* much mors cement would ba required to coinplete a contract even
the giving out of which had not at
tliat period boon considered.
ictiiiii? lUinseiffibwn*
Referring to th* recent election, the
defeated organ saya its candidate (who
polled about, duo vote fir seven in the
District) polled a very fair number of
votes ''bearing in mind that he was
virtually unaided iu his canvass."
Now everybody hereabouts knows that
tho organ put forth the most streneous
efforts, used all the influence it pr-s-
si-saes to secure the election of its
candidate. If ho was "virtually unaided,"therefore, it follows'iis'il logical
sequence that tho organ's influence
must be "virtually1 nill! This, remember is its own confession, at which
we are a little surprised; but it has
been tho settled conviction of the
people for years—at wliich we are not
the least surprised. Our contemporary
has evidently been again engaged in
Ills favorite occupation of "trying to
make water run up hill,"

The World's Sympathy.
Since the day the lunatic MacLean
tired the pistol at tho Queen sympathetic messages have been pouring in
from the kingdoms aud republics and
parliaments and corporations of the
civilized world. The message from
President Arthur is said to have most
atteoted Her Majesty, The Rope telegraphed hii regret und congratulations
on the 3rd, and on the following day,
in tho chamber of deputies Senator
Critmi, referring to the attempt on the
life of the Queen, said the crime seemed
all the more monstrous to those who
knew the Queen's worth and intelligence. The minister of justice alluded
to the Queen as a model of all royal
aud domestic virtues, Throughout
the United Kingdom aud the Colonial
Empire special religious services were
held in Protestant ami Catholic
churches. The Archbishop of Canterbury requested tho clergy to offer
thanks for tho merciful escape of the
Queen. Her Majesty would appear
to have carried herself throughout
with remarkable coolnesi and couraye,
evincing neither nervousness nor fear.
''Disgraceful worki"
Under this heading tbo Standard
makes n niotit unwarrantable attack
upon this journal, charging us with
having published a foul libel on Mr.
Biinsler. What we did wasto.ceniure
a New Y«rk paner for slandering Brit
ish Columbia by tho publication of a
paragraph, whicli, however, gave no
names. Wo had no means of knowing, nor had we any teasmi foraup-
posjng, that tin? paragraph alluded to
Mr. Bunster. For aught we knew,
tbe junior member for Victoria city
might havo been the party aimed at.
Indeed, from what we know of tho
two men, and especially in view of his
Salt Lake experience, we should have
been far more likely to suspect, hiin
than "Honest Arthur." It is thu
Standard, therefore; not the Columbian; that has been guilty of the
"disgraceful work," by coupling the
name of the Member for Vancouver
with the paragraph which we felt ifc our
duty to denounce as a vile slander
upon the Provinco; and unless we aro
mistaken in the man, Mr. Hunstor
will cull upon the publisher to answer
for tho unwarrantable liberty taken
with his name.
A Voice from SpttUumchceii.
Mv Dear Mr, . —I send you
the petition signed by a goodly
number of our community. I feel
much encouraged with the general
sentiment of tho people of Spallum-
cheen on this liquor traffic and I am
ready to hope that there nre very
many of the friends of good order
scattered over our wide province, who
would not only sign petitions but help
by their influence to stop this most
dangerous of all traffics, Where ia
there a British -Columbian who has
not been disgusted with the destroying powor of whisky, rum, or brandy,
or tho compound sold as such I Many
promising sons of godly parents, coming here from Eastern or European
homos with buoyant hopes and sincere
desires of doing well, have fallen victims to the sway of "Come boys and
have a drink;" The strong, the handsome, and the learned, the rich and
the poor, the red men and the son of
my lord, all aro in danger everywhere
over the world of being injured some
way by the social glass. But here in
British Columbia, where the sons nre
far from their mothers, tho brothers
without sisters, where they tind no
homo but the beer-shop or whisky-
saloon, no society to hold them up lest
they fall, not even friends that will
speak an encouraging word or give a
warning voice to show the precipice or
the whirlpool ahead, it seams right
that something should be dono by all
who feel interested in ourgrc.it future
ai a province, to lay sure and lasting
foundation of riglifaolisijeas, justice,
truth and sobriety for our sucoewors
to build upon, so that succeeding generations may be blessed by the pioneers
uf to-day.
Yours sincerely, ■
A. L. Fortune.

Astronomers' knowledge of the
remarkable ring of small planets traveling between the orbits of Man and
Jupiter commenced with the first day
of the present century, when V'ut-m
discovered the first of theso objects,
which he named Ceres. Other discoveries followed at irregular intervals
until, in 1845, tho nuiner of these
small planets—or asteroids, as they
aro usually called—was increased to
live. Since that year the lilt has extended very rapidly, and 220 have now
been discovered. No estimate can be
formed of the total number of the
asteroids. Thoy are very small, and
Severrier has computed that their
combined mass is probably less than
one-fourth of the earth's mass. From
the size of Vesta, which is estimated
to be 310 miles in diameter, they
dwindle to an unknown minuteness.
Herr Honistein has communicated to
the Vienna Academy tho result of
recent researches, which appear to
prove that the number of asteroids
with a diameter of over 25 miles is
extremely small, and that probably all
such wore discovered before 1850,
The number with a diameter less than
tire miles seems also to be very small,
at least in the inner parts of the asteroid zone next Aran; in the outer
rsgions next Jupiter there may be a
more considerable number of theso
very small bodies. Most asteroids
seem to have diameters between five
and fifteen miles. The average number with a diameter of five to ton
miles discovered during the last twenty
years is about threo each year; tho
yearly number of ten to fifteen miles
diameter is about one and three-fifths.
Herr Hornsteiu believes, therefore,
that unless much moro powerful telescopes are used future discoveries of
asteroids will be chiefly confined to
those measuring five to fifteen miles
in diameter.

KITH AND KIN.
Sunday at Irkford is a day which
may or may not be dull, according to
the habits of those who may havo to
spend it there, by which I would intimate that the place is so large as tn
allow of Sunday being spent there in
divers and various ways without any
scandal accruing therefrom. Some
kind of provision is hw.de for thu
spiritual (m* otherwise) entertainment
of all, from Christians and secularists,
through every denomination of tho
.Tows, Turks, infidels, and heretics
who form no inconsiderable item of its
population.
.It was Bernard's only.olearholiday
throughout the week, as he had only
the half of Saturday. He had got
into a groove, as wo all got into
grooves, and his mode of spending the
day seldom varied. Tlie morning lie
usuftlly disposed of in walking if it
were fine; or in reading, writing, and
smoking if it were wet—in cither case
alone. Miss Vane was not to be seen
during thoso morning hours. Bernard
usually dined at the timely hour of a
quarter past one nn this day with
Lizzie and Mrs. Vane. In the afternoon he was supposed to be at. the
service of his betrothed—-generally, in
the evenings also, on which occasions
h.t- would accompany her to a church
in some outlying fields, which church
was-a favorite walk in summer fur
hundreds of persons who attended tlio
service and afterward walked home in
the evening freshness and coolness.
It was the nearest approach to a "summer Sunday evening" in the country
which was to be had. Bernard aud
Lizzie generally strolled back by some
roundabout route, leading at last into
the gasli'ghted thorougfiire, and so
quietly and peacefully home to supper, and, when Miss Vane had re-
tiled, a pipe, a book, and bed.
Thero were occasional Sunday evening! on which his fiance was deprived
of hi j [society; occasions on which he
devot'eel his attention fo the furtherance of the Liberable cause in politics,
and the secular one in religious and
philosophical matters, nt a meeting
composed of himself and a body of
kmuWd spirits, or rather, of spirits us
nearly akin to his own as bu could
find—and that was not very near, for
his. was a caustic, lonely, and somewhat bitter nature. This knot of men
—chiefly young, as may be supposed
from their proceedings—called themselves hy the somewhat ambiguous and
misleading title,of "The Agnostics."
It was something of a misnomer, sinco
their confession of agnosticism certainly went no further than matters
religious; on all other topics—social,
moral, ^and. 'political—they professed
to have the newest lights, and to be
•^pitfile! of 'taking tho lead at any
moment. These "Agnostics" wero all
ardent, hard-working fellows: Bernard
Aglionby was the ono cynic in tlieir
ranks. '■ They talked as pessimists of
the most terrible ami gloomy school.
They acted, hoped, and enjoyed themselves as optimists of the brightest
cheerfulness, again, always with the
exception of Bernard, and with him a
tinge of pessimistic melancholy was
constitutional. It needed a corrective,
which neither his life, his companions,
nor bis surrounding had yet supplied.
Mr. Percy Golding, it need hardly
be mentioned, did not belong to the
aspiring body of "Agnostics" just
spoken of.
On tho day in question tho club did
not meet, therefore Aglionby was at
liberty to dispose of his time as seemed
good in his own oyos. He got his
breakfast, and just as the piously disposed were wending their way to different temples, he put on his (mt, ran
up stairs, and knocking at the closed
door of the beloved of his soul, said:
"I'm going out, Lizzie. Shan't be
back again till dinner-time."
"All right!" cried Miss Vane, and
Aglionby, whistling, set oil'. He did
not ffllsa Lizzie in these Sunday moru-
injf walks. In the first place, they
extended bo far that certainly no town-
bred girl could have joined him in
them however good her will. Next,
they were always devoted to meditations—sometimes when he got quite
out into the country to reading—iu
which she had no part nor lot. His
Lizzie was a dear girl; he never thought
of her without a smile and a softened
look; but, equally, there were long
hours during which lie never thought
of her at all. Ho did not want feminine influence in his deeper thoughts,
so ho often told himself. What a bewildering thing it would be if Lizzie
ever were to take it into her head to
pretend that she felt au interest in
politics, for instance. What a hopeless muddle would result! Fortunately, she had better sense. She
knew what she was equal to, and
with wisdom confined herself to doing
it. He never aaid within biiuscff that
she knew what sho liked, and never
troubled her head about any ponwn
or thing outside the sphere of her
little, little world. He would have
liked dearly to marry her out of hand,
gift her a carriage, a lino house, a
check-book, aud carte blanche to amuse
herself im she chose, and give what
entertainments it pleased her to have;
while ho would have been very proud
of her beauty, would havo lived in
tho utmost harmony with her, and
she would never have interfered in tlie
really serious concerns which were
outside'her sphere—in the business,
the politics, ami the statesmanship of
life. In their mutual bark she was
metaphorically to recline iu the comfortable, cushioned cabin, with a novel
and her fancy work, while ho was to
bo the man at the wheel.
Ifc was a fine, crisp October morning, as be set out, turning his face
toward the south, and quickly threading the mazes of streets, till ho camo
to' a great high-road, full of persons
dressed in their best, with their
Prayer-bonks in their hands, and with
their Sunday gloves, umbrellas, and
expressions in full force. On either
side of the road were large houses,
residences of rich merchants, fashionable dootors, men of law in largo practice, bank directors, and other favored
ohm-of fortune, Thero were trees
too, in the gardens, waving over the
road, and an occasional Sunday emni-
bus taking a load of passengers out
into the country,
He pursued his wny until the last
houses were left behind, and those
whieh did now and then appear, wore
really mansions in tha country, in
grounds or parks of their own. The
air was pleasant, and blew with an
agreeable freshness upon his face.
Far away he could see the soft outlines
of blue Derbyshire hills, while to the
right extended a flat, smooth, highly
cultivated plain. He met very few
persons when he had advanced so far
on his way. With his hands In his
pockets, and his face occasionally
turned upward to look into the deep
Hold of liquid blue above, he marched
on and on, thinking busily of many
things—chiefly of tho meeting yesterday, and, naturally enough, of
those two strangers with whom he had
been twice in ono day brought into
collision.
"1 suppose she took an interest in
it all," ho reflected. "I wonder what
sho thought of it, and whether she
agreed or disagreed. She must have
come beoauso she wai interested—or
perhaps the old boy made her come.
I shouldn't wonder. He looked as if
he were one who wouldn't let any one
out of his sight whom he imagined
ought to be in attendance upon him."
A pause ill the thoughts, which presently returned to another but a parallel track.
"f wonder what the Tories will
make of our meeting yesterday; I'm
awfully anxious to seo to-morrow's
papers. By the way, I wonder, will
my letter be in to-morrow morning's
Dailg Chronicle. It should be, and it
should touch up those denominational
schools a bit. I hope it will draw
down a storm of abuse. I like being
abused—when I know I am in the
right of it. I like battle." His eyes
gleamed with that light—not a mild
ono—which oftenest illumined them.
"Pity there is so little chance of combat, of any sort in an Irkford saleroom."
Of late, these reflections upon that
state of life in which his lot was cast,
had been more numerous aud more
discontented than usual,
"If I could only see my way to
something else, not another day would
I remain," he thought. "It is slavery
—neither more nor loss, I should
think that father of mine, poor fellow, hardly saw the probable results
of his decisive step in life, or he might
have looked again before he took it.
I am ono of those results"- he smiled
in grim amusement—"and some of
the others I have to put up with as a
salesman of cotton goods."
He laughed again, not mirthfully,
and, looking at his watch, wheeled
round on his heel, and returned over
the same ground as that which he had
already traversed. Ho arrived again
in Crane Street, and found Miss Vane
quite ready to receive him, and dinner almost ready to be eaten Lizzie
was got up regardless of trouble, at
least; one trembled to think of the
amount of time which must have been
devoted to the frizzing and arranging
of the frizz of hair which projected,
like an excrescence, over her forehead,
aiid hung almost into her eyes: trembled because, if she had little leisure,
her work must have suffered terribly
from the tyranny of fashion, and if
she had much leisure she occupied it
in it deplorable manner. It did not
seam to strike Bernard in that light;
probably he had not the faintest idea
but tliat her hail' grew ready frizzed
as he saw it. His eyes lighted, his
fadi softened as .she met liis view.
"Well, my lass, good morning: ynu
do look bonny!'" he exclaimed, kissing
her tenderly.
''Don't call me Mas*),' Bernard, dear,
as if I were a factory girl!" she said
plaintively, raising her blue eyes to
Ills face.
"I won't call you anything that you
don't liko, iny beauty—doM that suit
you better? What am 1 to do for
yon this afternoon 'I I am at your
service."
"Oh, wo aro going to Mrs. Golding's
to tea, and then I want you to go to
church with me."
Thu light certainly did die out of
Aglionby's eyes, as this enchanting
programme was unfolded for his de-
tight.
"Tea nt Mrs. Golding's?" he said,
trying hard not to speak ruefully.
"Have you quite promised ? Is there
no means of getting out of it V
"I don't want to get out of it," said
Lizzie candidly, "i like going there,
there'll bo others there us well as us,
and I'vo promised Mr. Ooldiug to
sing his favorite song."
"Have I What is that?" asked Bernard, who was nevor jealous by any
chance—a characteristic not perfectly
agreeable to .Miss Vane's idea of a
model lover.
"It's called, 'Wo sat by the River,
you and I,'" she answered. "Come,
dinner's ready; ma's calling."
"All right, we'll leave the river till
afterward, though what river you and
Percy can imagine yourselves by, at
Mrs. (Joldiug's, except one of tea,
which there always is there, I can't
conceive."
"I shouldn't think you would like
to imagine us by any river, unless you
were thero too," she said, marveling ut
his utter incapacity tn comprehend
that other men admired her.
"He thinks I'm like him, t suppose.
He sees no one but ine; and he thinks
1 can't even seo that others see ine.
I do wonder sometimes that I ever
said 'Yes' to him so easily as I did,
except he is so much more of a man
than any of the others, and so awfully indifferent to everybody else—and
thou, Lucy Golding said I could never
bring him to book, huwevcr much I
tried. I'll show her (his afternoon
whether I haven't brought him to
book."
