NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
It was a busy day for ua all, for not
only had Katie's and Herwald's trunks
i <> be packed, but Bruoe's and Halcot's,
and the latter was in such a fever of
excitement that there was no doing
anything with him. Even while I was
sorting his shirts and entreating him
to tell me what had become of his missing collars, ho had rushed down the
lane without his hat, to tell his old
chum Seymour that he was going
awny, perhaps for a whole month, a
piece of intelligence that silenced
Seymour and made him very dull.
It was a miserable, trying day.
Though littlo was Baid, we were all
greatly shocked by the intelligence of
the minister's illneBi, and the silent
sympathy manifested on all sides for
Katie seemed to touch her to the
heart.
All through the day she bore herself well and bravely, making har
preparations for her departure with
Her usual forethought and alacrity,
and showing by no outward emotion
what she felt at thus leaving us all;
the only thing I noticed was that she
avoided with tacit instinct all attempts
at condolence, and never eveu looked
at me if she could holp it, but whin
she did so hor eyes invariably filled
with tears.
But nothing could exceed the kind-
ness of Bruce to her, and the gentle
gravity of hio manner. Quiet as he
waa—und he was very quiet—he manifested in a thousand little ways the
innate goodness of his heart; and at
onco constituting himsolf hor protector, shielded her from all unnecessary
trouble; and though ahe apoke less to
him than to the others, and acknowledged his kindness by no special
word, yet the softened look in her
dark oyes spoke volumes to us all.
Wearily the evening wore to its
close, and it was with a senae of relief that we all retired to our several
rooms, where we need no longer hide
with an embarrassed bIiow of ease and
cheerfulness the fear that lay dormant
at our hearts.
I was just preparing to extinguish
my candle when a low tap came to my
door, and opening it, there stood
Katie, with her bright hair all unbound, and a scared wistful look on
her face, as she begged to be allowed
to sleep with ine.
And then as the darkness covered
us, and chill haunting shadows em*
erged from hidden corners and seemed
to people the room with impalpable
shapes of undeveloped terror, Katie
crept silently to my bosom and oried
herself to sleep.
When we awoke the next morning,
the pattering of sleet against the
window-panes augured ill for the com
fort of the travelers, and it was i
chilly, disconsolate party that gathered
round the lighted break fast-table.
There was no pretense made at
cheerfulness, except on Halcot's part,
and it was rather didioult for him to
keep it up, while Seymour pulled sueh
a long face, and looked as though it
were a parting of years rather than
weoks—and it was at once comical and
snd to watch thom both,
Katie did not eat nor apeak, and
Herwald was very silent, and evory
one dispatched the meal as quickly as
possible, and then gathered in tho hall
to help or impede the process of getting thu luifgage carried down the lane,
where llio carriage was waiting fur it
nt the slile.
Thither at last we all repaired despite tho sleet, to wave our Init farewells from tho old trysting place; and
thoro for a moment Herwald stood
with Louie's hand clasped in hia, as if
he could never let it go.
"You will wiah me God speed,
Louie?"
"Certainly," Bhe answered brightly,
"and not only that, but a quick return to us; wo shall miss you sorely,
Herwald, nnd shnll be only too glad to
welcome you back;" and then I heard
no moro, for Kntio was calling to me
from the carriage window and I hur*
ried to her.
Tho little brown head nestled down
to me for the last time, as I bade God
bless her, and wrapping htr more
warmly in the folds of her plaid con*
tided her to Bruce's cr.re.
"Good-bye, dear Nell, oh, good-bye,
good-bye," I heard her cry, as they
drove off, nnd thon Dudley drew me
away, my dress and hair being heavy
with snow.
What a strange lonely place Sunnyside seemed, half depopulated and
with great gaps in the family circle;
and how odd it wus, when Rill and
Charlie had gone to bed and we three
settled ourselves down for the evening, Dudley took up thu paper, but
soon grow restless and throw it aside,
and commenced promenading tho room
in Bruce's polar-bear fashion; Louie
lounged drowsily iu her rocking-chair
with her novel lying in her lap. aud I
stitched at my little work-table, and
sighed till I could sigh no more from
sheer dullness,
Tho next day it was rather better,
and nfter that Dudloy and I fell into
our Darby-and-Joan ways, and had
long twilight talks, in which we discussed all possible and impossible
things, and built our air-bubble castles,
each one brighter than the last.
But Louio was disconsolate. Hide
it us she might, it waa easy to see that
ihe missed Herwald every hour ef the
day—missed him in her occupations
and amusements, from which all zest
and interest seemed taken away, and
missed him for himsolf nnd the delicate attentions with which ho had <
enveloped her, anticipating her wishes
before they were uttered, and giving
- her that silent homage that was quietly
but surely winning her heart.
A strange sweet change was passing
ovor our Loo in those daya, Herwald's subtle influeuco under the title
and pledge of friendship was stirring
up her sluggish impulses, and inciting
her .to become what he bo longed for
her to be—a whole-hearted, noble
woman.
Hour by hour, and day by day, I
saw her struggle with her indolence of
will, and apply horself to her several
pursuits, that she might surprise him
with her progros-t whon he ahould return.
But ahe nerer talked of him, nnd
rarely mentioned his name; and when
I strove to smooth the way to some
conversation on the subject, that I
might further his cause by i little
judicious praise, she would listen to
me In perfect silence, till a chance
question disturbed her, and then ahe
would break it off.
One day thore enme a lottor to her
with the Delorme crest aud seal; it
wu lying on her plate when sho came
down-atairs, aud she took it up with a
Httle conscious flush, and thon laid it
wide. Nothing was said about it all
day, but the following morning she
posted an answer with her own hand.
The next week there came another,
and the following weok one more, and
then I understood that the friends
were beginning a pleasant correspondence, and meant to koep it all to
themselves; but as time went on the
dreamy look deepened in Louie's eyea,
and a shade almost of aadnoss came
over her face, till I had almost ceased
to notice it under the pressure of new
and strange events.
One morning, when the letter-bag
was handed to Dudley, he drew from
its contents two black-edged letters-
one from Bruoe, the other in an unknown hand; and hastily perusing the
first with a grieved faco, ho passed it
over to me. It was very brief; the
minister was dead, and ho, Bruce, was
about to start for Edinburgh on the
instant receipt of Katie'a letter, in
which Bho had prayed him to eome to
them at onco, as her mother was ill,
and ahe herself too much distressed
to enter the complicated business
matters that were waiting her.
Bruco just wrote thia and inclosed
poor Katie'a penciled scrawl, and added in a postscript that he had left
Halcot at Hurst Hall, till Herwald
Bhould bring him home; he was very
welt, he said, and enjoying himself
mightily.
"And now, Nollie," said Dudloy,
looking up from his second letter, "1
hare another painful surprise for you.
Your godmother, Mrs. Hazeldean, of
Hazlitt, is dead."
"My dear Dudley!"
"Sho died suddenly one night last
ween in a sort of fit, and when her
maid wont to hor bedside in tho morn*
ing, at her usual hour for rising, life
waa quite extinct."
"Oh, my poor godmother, what a
terrible end! Who has written to give
you these particulars V
"Her Bolioitor, Mr. Delany; but
that is uot all, for he requires your
presence up in London by twelve o'clock
to-morrow, that you may be present at
the opening of tho will."
"Only I?—surely Louie is to bo
there too?"
"No, only the oldest daughter,
Holen Marion Mortimer. So I suppose, Miss Nellie, you are coming in
for some nice little legacy,—-though,
now I come to think of it, poor Mrs.
Hazeldean always called Loo hor favorite."
Yes," cried Loo, "till I thwarted
her, and called her a wicked woman to
her face; after that, I suppose I forfeited my chance. Nevor mind, Philip
will be righted now, and come into his
own again; Nellie tolls me he and Rose
have been vory anxious about their
future."
"Indeed they have. Philip's long
illness deprived her of all ber little
savings, and when tho last letter came
from Ventnor, it said that he waa atill
invalided, and would be utterly incapacitated for work; and she aid nut
know what they wero to do when all
their money waa gone.
"Sho would havo to become the
bread-winner, I supposo, and maintain
herself and him. What a wretched
life for them! Poverty would be unendurable to a man like Philip, with his
luxurious and extravagant habits, and
beforo long lie would have worn out
himself and her too with hia querulous
railings against fate."
"No; Hose says he is much improved, and tries to curb hia impetuous
temper, though at times, of course, it
is beyond his control in his weak nervous state. But he is very gentle and
grateful to her, and Rose thinks that
something of the old love is returning
to him, for he ie far less restless and
miserable, nnd talks cheerfully of tho
time when he shall be well, and can
take her to some of his favorite places.
'Vain hope,' she writes, 'for long before that happy time arrives I shall
havo to tell him we are penniless.'"
"One could almost say, humanly
speaking," pondered Dudley, "that
this sad event happening just now is
not so lamentable as it seems. But
now we have little time to spare, Nellie, if we are to be in town to-night."
"To-night!"
"Yea, unlesa you want to rise at 5
a.in. to-morrow—rather a chilly proceeding on a winter's morning, and in
that case you will lack your escort,
who will never get up at that unearthly
hour to please anybody. No, let us be
reasonable; you put your houae in order, and prepare me an early luncheon,
and we will get up by six or seven, in
time for a cozy tea with Mr. and Mra.
Philip."
"Snail we meet thom, then?" I exclaimed eagerly; "you nevor told me
that."
'How silly you must be, then, not
to know the hoir-at-law must be forthcoming at well oa Helen Marion Mortimer; they are in London already as
it happens, and wo are going to put up
at the very same hotel. There, don't
oak me any more questions, you chatterbox, for I'm off to tho works,"
So he went, and at the appointed.
hour we were on our way, and after a!
short but bitterly cold journey, found
ourselves at the London Bridge terminus.
There, amid a seething shouting
masB of passengers, porters and cab*
men, I wss huddled and hustled to the
refreshment-room, whero n cup of hot
coffee revived my exhausted faculties,
and then we got into a cab and drove
rapidly off.
Often aa 1 had heen in London, it
wna still a cleliciously novel eight to
sue; and I found ample amusement in
watching the crowds that ebbed to and
fro on the slippery darkened pavement;
and I was quite aorry when we stopped
bo soon at the door of a handsome private-looking hotol.
Several waiters received us, one of
whom, on hearing our name, bade
Dudloy follow him directly, at Captain
and Mrs. Hazeldean had given orders
that we were to be conducted to their
npartment as soon as we arrived.
Rose Meredith — Mrs. Hazeldean,
well, it still Bounded strango; but I
had no time for. pondering, aa we were
already entering a long well-lighted
drawing-room, with a blazing fire half
heaped to the chimney at one end; and
a lndy in deep mourning, with aoft
shining bands of gray hair, who wu
rising to greet us.
"Is it you, Helen 1 how glad I am ;
to aee you again, my dear;" and still
holding me by the hand, sho welcomed
Dudley warmly, and then, placing me
ou tho couch beside her. busied herself
with my wraps,
"My husband will bB here directly;
he has only gone down to the coffee-
room to a friend nf his. We hardly
expected you by this train; but I'm io
pleased you havo come;" and as aho
said thia, sho stroked back my hair
with the fond kind smilo of Rose
Meredith of old.
But it was not Roso Meredith, it
was Mrs. Hazeldean, a mild, soft-eyed
woman with a low plaintive voice and
pleasant motherly ways; all the sternness and depression gone, all the hungry iluttering of the hands, and replaced by a benignant repose that wu
very restful to soe.
And then Philip oamt in, and ut the
Bound of hiB stop Roae'a gray eyes became bright ana dark, and tho fluah
deepened on har pale fact as sho rose
hutily  to  assist him with her arm
across the room.
And this wreck of a man that crept
so slowly towards ua, with wasted
limbs and stooping shoulders, was the
proud, cynical Captain Hazeldean,
whom I had once regarded with a mixture of fear and aversion.
It seemed u if years of suffering hud
paaaed over him; his face was drawn
and bloodless, and his forehead deeply
lined; he was becoming bald too, and
a short yellow beard altered the expression of the lower part ot his face,
so that the man lookod prematurely
old; his chest was hollow, and a dry
hard cough impeded his feeble utterance, ond only the undimmed luster of
tho eyes remained to tell what Philip
Hazeldean had been in the days when
health and strength and youth had
been his.
Deeply shocked, I put my hand in
his without speaking, whilo Rose looked imploringly, as if to entreat me not
to notice the change, and Philip said—
"You find me an altered man, Helen
Mortimer; I have seen the best of my
life. Ib this your eldest brother? it ia
long since we met, Dudley but you at
least are unchanged, and tho years
have passed lightly over your head;"
and then, guided tenderly by his wife,
he sank down on the couch, breathing
painfully, while ahe stooped over him
and wiped the perspiration from his
brow,
"Don't talk any moro just now,
Philip, you are exhausted with climbing the stairs. Did not Major Haugli-
ton or Captain Dale offer to see you to
your room ?"
"No, they were all tno busy talking.
What a merry crew those fellows are,
to be sure—too merry for me, I can
tell you; they have worn me out. Just
give me n glass of wine, Roso, and let
me rest quietly a minute, and then I
shall be more ready to enjoy our
friends for the rest of the evening,"
That night, when, after a long pleasant evening I retired to my room, and
Roso followed me to see after my comforts and speak a few last work, I oould
not help expressing my pleasuro at
witnessing the peaceful change that
had passed over her life.
"Whet a faithful nature yours must
be," I continued, "that tho bitter sufferings and wrongs of years should not
be able to deaden the old love. It is
almost a matter of bu. prise to me that
Philip should still be so dear to you;
and yet you told me once that the passionate love was gono ?"
"And ao it was; the Sre that wastes,
if neglected, must dio out in time, and
my love and my suffering under the
mercy of Heaven grow less as tho years
wont on; hut I alwaya cared for him,
always, aud would have laid down my
lite for him gladly, even while he
spurned me most. Those were bitter
days," said Rose, sighing, "and they
have left their evidences here," passing
her hand over her gray hair, "but I
nover mean to think of them more;
they are forgiven u though they had
never been."
"And the old love haa come back 1"
"Ah, can you wonder at it?'' and
her tender eveB filled with tears. "H
could I help it, when hia mutilated
helplessness appealed to all my womanly compassion; when he lay there wasting rway and feeble as a child, with no
one in the world to caro for him but I;
and he, my husband—my husband,
and the father of my boyl Helen," sho
continued, folding her palo hands, "I

love him, I love Philip better now than
in the days when we whisped our first
young vowa in Fern Hollow down by
the cliffs; when my hair was an brown
as tho chestnuts iu my lap, and ho said
that thore was no one in the world so
beautiful as Rose Meredith to him."
And you are happy ?"
'Yes, I am happy; peace and sober
content are mine, for I know now that
I am necessary to him, and that he
would not part with his gray-haired
wife for alt that life could offer him;
and I am happy, though I know nt no
very distant day it will please Heaven
to ordain that we shall part."
"Parti ob, Rose, do you mean ho is
as ill as that?"
"He will never be better, my child;
he is a broken man; but for such lovo
as mine there is no bitterness in tbis
thought of parting oetweon us; 'no
earthly separation ean leave us desolate.' Once, when my beauty was fading and my heart nigh to break, I
offered to Heaven the impious prayer,
that his love might be given back to
me at any cost, even at the sacrifice of
his Hfo or mine. It was a brief summer madnesa that breathed that prayer,
and it was soon repented; but look,
Holen, my friend—so surely aa tho restored love is poured into my bosom,
ao surely is his dear life ebbing slowly
away. But, hush, we must talk no
more, for ho is waiting for mo, and
will not sleep till I read him drowsy.
Good-night, dear, good-night;" and
with a kiss and something thnt sounded like a blessing ahe left me.
My thoughts were sad that night,
but they could not keep me, awake,
aud long hefore midnight I wns dream*
Ing pleasantly that Keith was coming
over to me in a boat that sailed placidly on a golden sen, and that Rese
waded towards him, knee-deep in water, with her hair floating round her
liko a mermaid's, and guided him to
land.  .
We had a quiet breakfast next morning, we three, and juat bofore Mr. Do-
luney arrivod Philip came down, and
dragged himself wearily to tho sofa.
I had met Mr. Delany beforo at Hazlitt, aud remembered him as an elderly, white*headen man, who used to sit
chatting with poor Mrs. Hazeldean,
and taking anuff by the ounce. He
recollected me too, and had a pleasant
greeting smile and word boforo we
drew our chairs decorously to the table,
and waited for him to begin.
It ia many a long year aince that day
and I cannot uow leeall to memory the J
exact wording of that strange Will.
I know thero wu a long list of lessor
legacies to old servants and dopend*
ents, before he camo, reading slowly
and ponderously, to the part where
the testator, being then of sound body
and mind, bequeathed the bulk of her
entire personal property, amounting in
all to eighty-five thousand pounds, together with the manor, hall, and lands
of Hazlitt, to her goddaughter, Helen
Marion Mortimer, with the one stipulation that she should allow, during
the period of his life, the sum of one
hundred and fifty pounds per annum
to her nephew, Philip Hnzeldean.
When this startling announcement
wu read there wu a groat hum of astonishment. Dudley sprang to his
feet, and then sat down again, while a
sudden mist seemed to rise before my
eyei and blot out tho room and the
people in It.
What were my thoughts that moment ? ah, I am ashamed to say; a sud-
whirlwind of ideu seemed to surge
through my heart and brain, and to
pass and repasa with a velocity that deprived me of all power of reasoning,

A Good Move. — The Provinoial

Improvements. — There are at the
present time many important improvements being carried ou in this city,
which will add a great deal to its attractiveness. Among the most important may lio mentioned tho extensive buildings being constructed for
the use of the Dominion Sawmill Com-
puny, un Richmond Btreet; the liand-
Bomo residences going up near Albert
Crescent, one for Capt, Jemmett and
ono for Mr. Quilty; the new livery
stable building for W. J. French, on
Ellis street; the proposed new brick
hotel and stores on the site of the late
Colonial; an extensive nddition to
Townsend's livery etnble, and other
improvements of a valuable nnd attractive nature in different parts of town.
All this shows enterprise and go-ahead-
ativeness which wilt yet make our oity
second to none in the province.
 *—	
Bricks.—We believe it is tlio intention of the government to build the
new gaol of brick. The new Colonial
hotel will also be brick, and tlie stores
adjoining. The erection of theso buildings during the present season will
crente a large demand in this city for
bricks, and yet we hnve no brick-yard
in operation. In Viotoria bricks sell
for 810 a thousand, and it costs $12 to
lay them down in this city! We are
told that first-class clay nnd sand for
brick-making exist in abundance here,
and it is a wonder that no person has
taken up this industry, Bricks at $12
or $15 per thousand ought to be a bonanza to tho manufacturer, and there
could be no outside competition even
nt theso prices. Very few people will
indulge in the luxury of brick buildings bo long as the bricks have to be
imported from Victoria ut $22 per
thousand. There is overy reason to
believe that the demand will bo continuous,for if material could be had at a
reasonable figure our future business
establishments would bo mainly constructed of brick. Thero is nn opening for a good brick yard, nnd lots of
money for the person who takes hold
of the industry intelligently.
Police Court.—Since Friday there
hnve been no eases disposed of at the
police court except 'that of a seaman
named Geo, Plough, Some other cases
were up, but remanded till this morning. The Plough enso was tried on
Monday before Messrs. Ferris, Pittendrigh and Mathers. Mr. McColl appeared for the plf. and Mr. Bole for
the dft. It seems that Geo. Plough
was cook on the British bark Lady
Bowen, and during the voyage he was
assaulted by one of the seamen and
disabled. O u nrrival a t Royal
Roads Capt. Rudd wished to discharge
him, but when the man waa about to
leave the captain said he would havo
to go to Hastings, Ou arrival at Hastings ho was allowed to go. The man
claimed that there was a balance of
$45.98 due him. Tho captain's statement, however, mndo thu man appear
indebted to the ship. In this statement he had boon charged £2:6s. for
the henlth officer's certificate nt Victoria, nnd during the time he wns kid
up he hnd not been allowed wages,
Plough npplied to the magistrates at
Burrard Inlet for a summons against
the captain, but the magistrates refused. He then came to this oity nnd
obtained a summons. As soon as tho
captain learned this he got a warrant
from the inlet magistrates charging
Plough with desertion. The bench
found a verdict in favor of Plough for
the full amount of his claim, with
costs. In the matter of the warrant
application was made to have it tried
at the inlet; but this the court refused,
and dismissed the charge against
Plough.

Thb B. T. F. Entertainment.—
The entertainment in the Drill Shed
last Saturday evening, in aid ot the
Bell Tower Fund, was quite well attended. The performance, taken ai a
whole, was passably good for amateurs,
the majority of whom were never previously before the public. Of the music, by Messrs. Riokman, Keary, Turn-
bull and Robinson, we have nothing
but praise; it waa excellent to a degree
that far surpassed our expectations.
From Nanaimo*
The Free Press stateB that an explosion occurred in the Vancouver
Coal Co.'s mine on Tuesday morning.
The men were driving a level to connect two shafts. When a blast was set
off an explosion of gas followed, severely injuring four of the miners. None
of them were fatally hurt.—The body
of John Shnw was found floating in
the water nenr Comox. He once worked iu the coal mines and is supposed
to have been drowned.
From Clinton.
(Correspondence of the Columbiuu.)
Clinton, Feb. 10.—The cold snap
which commenced un the 2nd inst.
continues with unabated severity.
Last night the thermometer sank to
below zero at Clinton. At the 70
mile house it reached 54, and at Big
Bar 56. Since the 2nd the thermometer was only once as high aa zero,
Cattle are yet doing well, and it ia to
be hoped the weather will soon moderate, as feed will be scarce if the cold
continues much longer.

From Maple Ridge.
(Correspondence of the Columbian,)
Port Haney is beginning to look up.
Real estate is on the move. The hotel
has changed hands. Mr. D. Dock-
steader has taken the initiative in tho
sidewalk movement. Pedestrians here
sometimes find themselves encumbered
with real estate which sticks to them
tighter than an oyster. The most
noticeable improvement among the
ranchers is that stately building on
the north branch of Kanaka creek,
cnlled "Smeadley Hall," erected by
Mr.' W. Smeadly, late of England.
Mr. Jas. Ritchie hns a fine dwelling
m course of erection. We sometimes
hear a little blowing about the rapid
transit of mails frum the oast. Maple
Ridge cannot boast much in this res
pect. Nineteen days from Ontario ia
progressing, like that bird called in
natural history the crab, which travelled backwards. Maple Ridge wants
some one in this business to pony up,
or faughnballah! The municipal fathers (and mothers) meet on the 1st

PURSUING A SUPPOSED MURDERER,     -
[By Telegraph to the Coi.tmniAN.]
Matsqui, Feb. 25.—Yesterday nfternoon the liouiie of an old man named
Belt who lived ou Nootsack river,
about four miles from tho boundary
line, was discovered to bo on fire, r,nd
on reaching tho house the settlers
found his body inside with a bullet-
hole through the head und quito dead.
It is supposed that robbery wns intended, but that owing to the resistance
offered by the old man, he was shot
and the house set on fire to cover tho
murder. Bell waa about 04 years of
age, and was at one time a merchant
of San Francisco. Ho is supposed to
havo been possessed of considerable
means, which wns no doubt the incentive for the crime.
Matsqui, Feb. 26.—Tho sheriff,
with a posse of men, started from
Nootsnck, W. T., this morning for
Sumaa in search of an Indian named
Jack, who is supposed to be the murderer of Mr. Bell, whose dead body
was found in hia burning cabin on
Sunday afternoon, Circumstances
point strongly to Jack's connection
with the crime. He was seen in Bell's
neighborhood both before and alter
the murder waB committed. On examination it was found that the bullet
hole in Bell's head was that of a ball
from a gun, not a rifle, which further

Winninki, Feb. 24,—Early Saturday
morning 20 policemen under Col, Hirsch-
mere started for a cabin 13 miles north
of Qu'nppelle river, wliere Yellow Call's
band of 75 braves uro holding sway.
When within twu rods of their destination the Indians came swarming out and
flourishing guns refused to allow the police to enter. The colonel commenced
parleying with the chict, but Yellow
Calf distinctly refused to give up any
men or stolen provisions. He said he
never would surrender. The police wero
then formed in line; but the last van
had not taken his position when the
doors and windows were suddenly thrown
open and the openings were filled with
rifles, Owiiij- to the great odds and the
Indians having the protection ef the
cabin, after a short talk tlie police
withdrew to a farm-honse for the night.
The people of Broadview are greatly
alarmed.
Winnipko, Feb. 25,— A band of Cree

my council.
Council met at 7.45 on Monday even
ing, HiB Worship Mayor Dickinson in
the chair. Present—-Councillors Deane,
Cunningham, Curtis, Johnston, Elliott,
and Hendry.
A communication was rend froin Howse
k Hickman, regarding their ability to
undertake surveying, etc.; from C. W.
Cameron, regarding taxes on his lots;
from Win, Ross, respecting certain rubbish near his residence; from Jas. Kennedy, asking to be appointed city architect, and offering to do that and the duties of the clerk for $120 per month;
from the Hyack Fire Co., regarding the
stewardship muddle.
The bill of Kyle k Tilton of §52.50,
for coal oil, was ordered paid.
Councillor Elliott, chairman of Board
of Works, said the tank on Douglas
street had been examined and found to
be rotten, nnd he thought it desirable
that a new tank be built there much
larger than the present one. Referred
to the Board of Works with power to
act.
Councillor Cunningham reported that
he had obtained a settlement with Mr.
Corbould; that he had paid his taxes for
last year, but the Council would have to
lose all previous delinquencies. Tho report also recommended that all back
claims against Mr. Corbould he cancelled.
Councillor Hendry was granted further
time in which to bring in plans for repairs on Douglas street,
Councillor Elliott stated, with regard
to the application of the Chief Engineer
to place the Hook and Ladder truck in
the agricultural hall temporarily, that he
hod ootained the consent of Hon. Jno.
Rebson, provincial secretary, to its being
thus placed.
Mayor Dickinson said he had had a
long talk with the provincial secretary,
and that he had learned it was the intention of the Government to place the
Land Office on Clarkson street, and that
that street should be widened at least
ten feet, as it would make a splendid
street for offices. The Councillors generally approved of it, especially as the
Government would allow the necessary
cutting to be done on its property.
On motion of Councillor Curtis, seconded by Councillor Hendry, tho Council
went into Committee of tho Whole on
ttio second reading of the Salaries Bylaw,
Councillor Hendry in the chair.
Speaking to clause 1, Councillor Curtis thought it was n good idea to reduce
the Clerk's salary. Tne matter had been
talked over among the Councillors uud it
was generally understood that boiiic reform in that office was necessary, and
that allowing him a percentage of taxes
collected would tend to make hiin more
diligent in that direction and put into
the oity treasury many dollars of taxes
now going delinquent every year and becoming uncollectuble,
Coun. Deane said the clerk's books of
last year should be improved upon; there
should be something done towards having the taxes collected up closer than
they were last year. The idea of a §2,*
000 delinquency out of a $5,000 revenue
was shameful and certainly could have
beon remedied had the clerk done his
duty,
Coun. Elliott was in favor of the plan,
but would like to know about the amount
of taxes the clerk would l»e required to
collect at a percentage, so as not to allow
him an cxhorbitnnt salary.
Coun. Curtis said it wns the intention
to raise the valuation of taxable property
in the muulcii>alily Iti) §750,000, whicli
would give a revenue of $7,500, and allow the clerk, at 10 percent., §750 for
collecting. Then give liim a stated salary of say $000 or $500 for his other duties, would make an ample remuneration
for liis services.
Coun. Cunningham said lie liked the
idea; it was necessary to wake up the
clerk to a sense of his duty; $100 per
month was a handsome salary for performing the duties of that office; a number of good men could be got to fill the
office for less than $100 per month, and
the Council should not pay more than
that sum.
Coun. Johnston suid he had not heard
anything about the matter before, hence
was unable to speak knowingly upon the
subject; the clerk should do his duty; if
he did not, dismiss him and get one that
would; he was of the opinion, however,
that tho percentage clause would work
hardship.
Mayor Dickinson liked the plan, aud
approved of the percentage ulauso; it
would tend to make the clerk nimble
and directly interested in having the
taxes alt promptly 'collected; hut the
Council could uot afford to pay more
thau $100 por month; that was as much
as the revenues would allow,
Coun. Elliott thought $50 per mouth
and Ih per cent, of collections sufficient;
however, it was best to let the matter
lie over for one week. So, on motion of
Mayor Dickinson, seconded by Coun,
Johnston, the committee arose, reported
progress, and asked leave to Bit again
next Monday, whicli was granted.
Mayor Dickinson iu the chair.
The matter of procuring two maps of
the city, with the saleable public squares
marked red (one for the use of tho Council with positions of street lamps thereon, and one for the Government), was
referred to the Mayor.
On resolution of Coun, Deane, the
Council went into Committee of the
Whole on tlie matter of procuring a new
city clerk, with Coun. Curtis presiding,
In opening the debate, Coun, Deane
said that some action should be taken
at once. Last year the Council liad
been subjected to a great deal of contempt and even insult from the clerk;
his duties had been performed very unsatisfactorily; it was uucessary to secure
the Council against the recurrence of
such a deplorable state of affairs; the
Jiay of the clerk was amnio to secure the
uitliftil performance of liis duty, aud
uot harrass tho Council by his negligence and inattention.
Coun. Cunningham thought it just as
woll to have a change in the clerkship;
it was not a good policy tu havu tliu
clerk iu the loom legislature; his deputy
was n very efficient one, but it was not
supposed that he could transact tlio
business as well as the real clerk; tho
matter was very important, and should
be settled as soon as possible; on thu efficiency of thu clerk rests the prosperity
of the corporation, and it wus not well
to have him occupying this dual position
—three or four months of the yoar away
from his duties.
Coun, Johnston thought it was a curi-
niiH step, this going into Committee of
the Whole on the clerkship; it was unfair to the present clerk, and rather u
shabby and unmanly proceeding; tie was
not defending the present clerk, hut
thought that person should at least have
a chance of defending himself,
Coun Deane said it was far from his
intention to deal unfairly in the matter;
he supposed the clerk would bo present
and defend himself; the Council wanted
some one thut would carry on the business of the corporation in a business-like
manner; the delinquent tax list of lost
year shows thnt tho present clerk has not
none his duty; therefore he should be
dismissed.
Couu. Elliott thought the buttor plun
would be to advertise for a suitable
olerk.
Couu. Hendry, thought it advisable to
wait until the .SalariesBylaw had passed,
so that the salary would be definite.
Mayor Dickinson thought the matter
should be settled Immediately, nnd as
11200 per annum would he guaranteed,
It was definite enough.
Moved by Coun. Cunningham, seconded by Mayor Dickinson, tliat a notice
he inserted in the local papers calling for
a suitable person tp aot as city olerk, ut
a salary not to exceed $1200 per annum,
a salary i
Carried, i
The Committee then arose and reported.
Mayor Dickinson in the choir.
The clerk reported verbally that Mr.
Suter had instructed him to expunge the
objectionable word "exclusively" from
his tender for city printing. Accepted.
Coun. Curtis presented the following
estimates for St. Patrick's Ward: Elliott sticet, $000; Peele street, $250; Irving street to Lee alley, $250; Lee alley,
to finish, $50; Royal avenue, repairs,
$200; Leopold street, $75; drain on
Blackwood street, $300; continuation of
St. Patrick Btreet, $200; cutting brush
ou Deane avonue, $50; incidentals, to
cover shortages, $500.   Total, $2,475.
Moved by Coun. Elliott, seconded by
Couu. Deane, that a committee composed
of Couns, Cunningham, Hendry and the
mover be appointed to confer with the
Provincial .Secretary during his stay here
respecting the location of the new city
gaol,   Carried.
Moved by Coun. JohiiBton, seconded
by Coun. Elliott, that $750 be donated
toward the fund for the purchase of a

Coun, Johnston, that tho clerk inquire

Through Kicking - Horse Pass*
itov. Hr. Grant lu the Week.
After leaving Morely wo had a
glorious day in the mountains. The
smoke thnt had overhung tho valley
from forest fires was blown away by a
breeze and the firett wore pretty well
extinguished hy opportune rain. The
mountains rose before us, apparently
just at hand, although wo knew that
Padmoro's, whoro the first range rises
abruptly from nn elevated valloy and
closes iu ou tho river bo that it iB no
longer in an open vtdley but is seen
issuing from a gup iu the wall of mountains, was mure than twenty miles distant- Ou our way to this "Gap," an
opening iu tho mountains to tho left
is disclosed. Thore the Kananaskis
runs into tho Bow, mid up its valley
is tho Kananaskis Pass. Near Pad-
more's wo nro within touch of the
Rockies; to tho right a huge battlement of rock, thou a tower, thon a
truncated pillar, and then—nearer the
rond—a huge sloping mass of tho most
magnificent rock exposures I had ever
seen. Tho stratification is ns distinct
as the leaves of a book, tho dip of tho
strata boing from tho west, ns if tilted
up from the Pacific Bide. This groat
muss extends for moro thnn a mile
along the roadside, so near that the
temptation is vory strong to halt nnd
climb up along the steep slope to the
summit of tho naked limestone, Passing through the gup, just beyond Pad*
utnro'a— which spot bears the namo
of a gentleman who settled here, apparently actuated by love of solitude
and lovo of the beautiful combined--
thu scenery becomes still grander.
Tho gap opens out into parks, through
which tho river runs calmly, broadening out into almost lake-like expanses.
Tho mountains on each side are
streaked with linos of auow. The railway is at an elevation of about 4,500
feet, or us high ns tho summit of Ben
Nevis, and on tho south the mountains rise sheer up 7,000 feot moro,
lhe last thouaand being naked musses
of rock. Theso mountain forms aro
superljj so varied und clearly defined,
and on bo gigantic n scale. Here is a
great sphinx faco, a thousnnd foet
long. Thero a Brobdignaginn baby
sleeping peacefully, its face upturned
to tho open heavens. A gianntic leopard eouchaut is succeeded by a Hon
rampant. Single punks, then n Parnassus, then a group of sisters, nnd then
n serrated rango; overy possible form,
nil alike beautiful uud on the grandest
scale. Thore lire atill a few fires iu
the woods along the baso of the mountains, and tho air is slightly hazy in
consequence; but. this helps rather
thnn hinders the offect on the mind of
tlio onlooker. When the weathor is
perfectly clear, all the mountains within the rango of vision seem closo nt
hand, bo great is tho mass of each.
A little haze gives the requisite perspective. When clouds are wreathed
round tho baso or roll midway up, the
peaks come out with nothing between
them and you, and they seem bo near
that onu fancies hu could almost put
liis hand on them. It seems to mo
that next summer, when the journey
can bo mado from Winnipeg to the
summit of tho Rockies in two days,
all Canada that can alt'ord tho trip
will flock up to this valley. Cnlgurry,
Morloy. Padmure's, or farther on,
II ills-dale iu Aylmur Park, or the summit itsolf would bo good centres for
Bight -seeing, prospecting, geologizing,
hunting or fishing. 1 havo not seen
thu Yo-semite, but to judgo from
photographs merely, (he valloy of tho
Bow should havo tho preference. As
wu proceed up thu valley the mountains become grainier. One, Canende
Mountain, bo frilled from a jet of water that bursts out from its naked stono
side half way up and trickles down to
its tout, is fully 5,000 foet above the
4,1100 that ia thu elevation of thu park
at its baso. Three-fourths of the
5,000 feel is bare liiuesloiie, at onu
point twistod, ulsowhore regularly
stratified, and the whole presenting at
a distance Ilie appearance of an enormous solid tinifiu of stony. Krom the
Devil's iltad, a still highor peak behind, a turbulent stream flows, whicli
wo came to know protty woll, fur wu
had to cross it, seven times in the
couiKoof as many miles. If it be true
that a vein of good anthracite coal hns
buen discovered nt Casoado Mountain,
thu realistic settlors will probably
change thu name to Mount Anthracite, Buch a find would be of more
value to the country than the recent
alleged discovery of gold - hearing
quartz, declared to be worth from
$70,000 to $150,000 a ton at Castle
Mountain, atill farther up the valley.
\ patty that wished to hunt would
require to engage, at Morloy, Indians
who know tho mountains, for between
the StouioB* and tho work connected
with trnckluyiug nud tho prospecting
of miners, evory kind of game must
have been driven out of the valley of
tho Bow; but to the north and south
good sport oan still be had. The Kicking Horse valloy to tho west ia also
good, nnd the Solkirks are virgin
ground for tho hunter. Various kinds
of deer, tho white-tailed—like tho
ordinary Canadian deer—the black-
tailed, nud tho cariboo, all threo different from the antelopes of the plains;
tho elk, or the regular red deer; tlie
moose; mountain sheop and goats;
and hears, brown, black, grizzly and
cinnamon, nil offer sport of a noble
kind. Tho rivers, brooks and lakes
are snid to bo well supplied with fine
mountain trout, weighing from half a
pound to twenty pounds. But aa we
went in for neither shooting nor fishing, we cannot speak witli authority
on the groat subject of sport.
At Hillsdale, twenty-eight milos un
this side of the summit, we exchanged
our wagons for saddles and pack-
horses. At this camp there was a
supply store belonging to the railway,
and we were furnished with everything that would probably be required
to take ub ae far as the second crossing
of the Columbia on the other side of
the Solkirks. We grudged sorely
having to curry provisions down tho
Kicking Horse that we would not need
till we began to cross the Solkirks,
but it waa impossible to know in what
condition Major Rogers' stores might
be, and our commissariat had to be
secured. The Hillsdale camp, at the
west end of Aylmer park, waa the
most beautifully situated of any that
we liad yet seen. It was pitched at
the foot of some low aspen and spruce
covered hills, looking out to thu east
on a-grassy park of five or six acres
on which our teams and tho teams of
half a dozen other parties, and cattle
intended fur speedy conversion into
beef, were quietly grazing. Thia park
opened out between opposing lines of
mountains that roso 4,000 feet above
it; double ranges, the lower wooded
nt the base and then ribbed with long
lines of spruce that struggle with tlie
rocks and frost and snow for a bare
living, the higher springing from and
immediately behind them, grent masses of naked limestone contorted by
primeval convulsions, polished nnd
worn down by glacial action and atmospheric influences into every conceivable form. Every one of tliese
multitudinous peakB ib worthy of a
separate description, and would bo
honored with it over and over again
could   it only be transported to the
{dainB—Bay near Winnipeg. Before
ong they will probably be photographed to death, and nothing but the
art of the photographer can do justice
to their infinite richness in detail.
From this part of the valley, Cuatlo
Mountain, a magnificent looking tur-
reted rock crowning a great mountain
range, rises bo boldly thnt we can study
every detail into whioh the limestone
is carved. Those mighty masses look
as if they liad been piled up by masons, and chiselled and sculptured by
artists. In their singular multiplicity
and finish of detail the mountains of
the Bow River certainly excel the
Alps. It is in this part of the volley
that tho stultified aud igneous rocks
meet, and of course parties of prospectors and miners are searching for
silver and gold. Good specimens
have been found, and one or two
miners whom we met declared that
the district was certain to be another
Colorado. But it is bo diflicult to
know whether or not the specimens
were carried to the spot in the pockets
of speculators, and people havo beeu
bitten so often, that average credulity
is not bo great on the nugget and bonanza business as it oueu was. "I
wouldn't believe it was genuine," remarked one gentleman who had been
bitten hard by a suited mine, "if I
saw a vein of solid silver jutting out
from the rock." However, tho Castle
Mountain Mining Company uud tlie
miners of Silver City are not sceptical.
May their "Queen of the Hill bent
Colorado!   And so say we all.
NEWS FROM Mi PARTS OF THE WORLD.
London, Feb. IS.—The Berlin correspondent of the Times says Prince Bismarck haa returned to Herr Eisendcher,
the Germnu Minister at Washington, the
resolutions of condolence on Herr Las-
ker's death passed hy Congress, with a
counter request that he return the resolutions to tlie House of Representatives,
as the position of Lasker in Germany
was not such as to justify the resolutions.
The Times adds thnt although the above
seems incredible, the fact is tho relations
between Washington and Berlin are in a
state of great tension, chiefly owing to
the pork question. The Times concludes:
"One thing is certain, we havo not heard
tho last of the Lasker incident. The
Americans are much too proud, too sensitive and.too independent for that,"
London, Feb. 20.— Tho debate in the
Commons on the motion to censure the

yet the Government obtained a majority
of 49 in a house numbering fi37. Both

Tbitkkk (Cal.), Feb. 20. -An accident, in which human life has been sacrificed, occurred at an early hour this
morniug on the Central Pacific Railroad.
Surgeon Curtis received a dispatch that
his services were at once required near a
small station culled Tamarack, a little
distance west of the summit, ami in answer to the summons hastened by speciul
engine to that place. Upon Ida arrival
he found a scene of general destruction.
It seems that freight train No. (I had attached to it an emigrant car filled with
siiow-shovelers, whicli tho company had
picked up near Sacramento, and that
when the train reached Tamarack, the
watchman at that place, being in the
dark sheds and noticing only the caboose,
supposed the cars had all passed and
threw the switch. Tlie emigrant car was
coming on, and wax, instantly caught botween the two tracks, the forward trucks
going on the main track, nnd the r«'ar
ones in the siding plunged onward. The
car struck the uprights supporting the
shed roof, wliich were then covered with
15 feet of snow, aud instantly the ahed,
for a distance of lil) foet, fell, burying in
the fall the ill-fated car, A search among
the ruins revealed that two Italians,
whose tunics could uot at tho time be
ascertained, had been killed outright,
while four others were cither fatally or
very seriously injured, The debris has
lieon cleared by the Truakee wrecker.
All out trains have beeu delayed some
hours by reason of the fallen timbers.
I'ho railroad are doing all iu their power
to keop open the road.
Lui'i.sviLi.K, Ky., Feb. 20.—Tho worst
gale over known ia sweeping this part of
the Ohio valley from end to ond, carrying destruction and death with every
blast. About six o'olock the.raiu began
pouring and the wind blowing. This
changed to sleet and snow, the wind
blowing with a velocity of 40 miles per
hour. Captain Devan, in charge of the
life-savin« station, saw the houses in the
submerged portion of Louisville known
ua the Point aro falling by the score.
The upper stories of many uf these houses
aro occupied. At least 250 people are in
this flooded portion, It is impossible to
reach any more of these poople with
boats. We have already removed some,
but can take away uo more of them. No
boat oan now reach them, and they are
surely doomed. I would not venture 10
cents on their escape. Every packet on
tho Ohio river that cannot put Into shore
to-night is bound to die. Below Kvans*
vllle there aro miles and miles of flooded
country where no steamer could possibly
mako shore. The timber skirting the
banks of the river is under water and to
strike upon it in a calm moans death,
but in this stage of the water there can
be hut one (ate for any vessel loose upon
the Ohio., To-night a flat-boat which
ventured out to take off some people on

and part if not all of the occupants wero

Minneapolis, Feb. 20.—Three out of
four stages due iu Lauioine, Dak., yesterday, nave not been heard from, and it
is believed that tho drivers aud passengers perished in the blizzard. The Ellen-
dale coach wob found half way between
Lamoine and Yankton, turned bottom
side up, and the driver was found in a
house two miles distant, badly frozen.
He Imd no passengers. John L, Anderson started with a lady passenger from
Lamoine at about the tame time as the
coach, and they have not since been
heard from. It is believed that both
perish'd.. Search parties arc looking for
them in all directions, There are uo tidings of the Jamestown coach, and the

Codpebton, O., Feb. 20.—A terrific
rain and wind storm set in at this place
to-night, doing great dauiage to trees
aud buildings. It is feared that much

London, Feb. 22.—Tho Daily Telegraph reports the surrender of the garrison at Tokar. The Times confirms the
report.
Londos, Feb. 22.—The ministerial
conference on the fall of Tokar was short.
An adjournment takes place until tomorrow, pending confirmation of advices.
The Secretary of State for War afterwards held a consultation at the War
Office, with tho Duke of Cambridge and
Gen. Wolseley, It Is reported that Wolseley advises that a campaign be continued against Osman Digman, in order
to prevent tho rebels marching north on
Berber, and that a detatuhment be sent
to the relief of the garrison at Kassala.
Gen. Cordon telegraphed instructions to
Admiral Hewitt, commander at Suakim,
to call a conference of the sheiks of tribes
between Suakim and Massownh for the
purpose of arranging terms of peace, and
also to ask Osman Digman to meet Gen.
Gordon at Khartoum. Admiral Hewitt
not seeing hia way clear to act on the instructions, referred the despatch to the
Home Government.
Caiko, Feb. 22.*- Twelve hundred
British troops at Suakim and 3,200 at
Trinkitat. The government of Kassala
favors El Mahdi and would ratherevacu-
ate the town than fight him; a portion
of the Khartoum gairison has left the
town. Three thousand nine hundred
blacks remain at Khartoum and 3,000 nt
Seuiiaar.
Cairo, Feb. 22.—Everything indicates
that Egyptian officers at Tokar preferred
to surrender to the rebels rather than to
Christians. The revolt at Mnssaowah is
spreading; El Mahdi has appointed his
brother, All Yussuf, governor of Dar-
four and ordered him to raise a forco of
7,000 men and march to Kordofan to reinforce the main body of El .Mahdi's
troops.
Caiiio, Feb. 25.—Great uneasiness is
felt here at tho report thnt the powerful
Beshavctiasah, who occupy the territory
between Khartoum and Wadu Haifa,
and eastward as far us Noobor, have revolted. If this is true Gen. Gordon with
Khurtoum and other garrisons are cut
off, Mahdi's ambassadors are going
throughout the whole of Egypt bearing
the simple message: "F am coming; he
ready."
Suakim, Feb. 25.—-Another refugee
from Tokar says the majority wished to
surrender, but 200 insisted upon continuing resistance, lt is uncertain, therefore,
whether the surrender will actually be
made; but it is strongly believed the ma*
(Ority prevailed and that Tokar is in
muds of the rebels.
Londos, Feb. 25.— Shortly after 7
o'olock this morning u terrible explosion
occurred iu the cloak room of the Victoria railway station, London. The ox*
plosion wus undoubtedly from dynamite.
A largo portion of tho roof was blown

destroyed. Seven men have been sent
to the hospital with severe injuries. Extensive damage was done to the surrounding property.
ST.PETKRsiiuitfi,Feb.25.—A deficiency
of one hundred million roubles iu tlie
last fourteen years has beeu discovered iu the administration of Turkistan.
It is stated that Russia has voluntarily offered England a pledge to stop ut
Merv aud use her influence with the
Khans of Barkohara and Khiva to facilitate English commerce. Ib is also stated
that the Russian government has invited England to join in the construction of a canal from Sea of Azof to the

Seventy-Five Majority.
Looking at the question from a
purely selfish point of view, the people of British Columbia may, perhaps, congratulate themselves that
the C, F. 11. loan sohemo 1ms been
passed. Wo believed tho scheme
would pass, but we confess that the
majority is a great deal linger than
wo expected. Tho question resolved
itself into onu of party strife long
before the conclusion of tho debate,
but very few persons woro prepared
to find on any division a government
majority of 70. Tho result of this
vote is, we suppose, that tho road
will be rushed through with all s|wod
from the Rocky Mountains to Sav*
ona, and from Port Arthur eastward
to Algotna Mills. It is quite possible that next year mny find Burrard Inlet connected with Ontario
by a continuous lino of railway, although it is scarcely probable that
the lino will lie wholly in Canadian
territory. The commercial advantages of this early connection will
be of considerable value to this province, and we may with confidence
look for an immediate rush of new
comers. But wo still adhere to the
views some timo ago expressed by
The Columbian, that the permanent
interests of British Columbia and of
the Dominion would have been better served if railway construction
had proceeded with less haste. I • is
during the progress of construction
that the best opportunities ore offered
for the establishment and extension
of our local industries. While these
large publio works are going on millions of foreign capital are being expended every year- in this province.
We confess that tho development
which this vast expenditure should
have produced is vory far from what
it might have been, and the ben-
fits derived from railway construction are. consequently, rather dis
Appointing. If construction had
proceeded more slowly, the industries of the province should havo
beeu able to supply the bulk of
material lequired. They have not
done so because they were allowed
no time in which to tako root and
grow. When the railway has been
completed it will be found that we
shall be nearly ub dependent upon
others for supplies as wo wero before it began, A large number of
settlers have come to us during the
past year, and a larger number may
be expected this season. But there
is a danger that when settlers are
able to come over our own railway
they may come in larger numbers
than we are able to provide for,
The population of British Columbia
is small. At the present moment
we probably have not more than
30,000 white peoplo iu the province,
If 10,000 more Bhould oome among
us suddenly it is manifest that our
resources would bo sorely taxed to
uccommodute them, aud might bo
found altogether inadequate. As
we grow stronger nnd our development goes on we shall bo able to
receive nil who come without embar-
russnietit.
interest for tho generul public. Peoplo generally admit that lawyers are
quite able to take care of tlioinsrjvcs,
and whatever regulations uiuy bo
made with respect to the law society
is a matter of comparative indifference. The bill amending the New
Westminster & Port Moody Railway
chaiter is simply an extension of
time. Construction may be commenced any time within two years
from tho lst of January last, nnd
the road may be completed any time
within four years of that date. The
new mineral act is ono of thu longest
of the session. It contains IH sections, and muny sub sections. , Directly and indirectly a great part of
the provincial revenue comes from
miners, During the present season
it is almost certain that mining
operations will bo considerably ox
tended, and it is of great importance
that the mining laws should be made
ns perfect us possible. The bill introduced by Hon. Mr. Davie, and
passed at lust session is the reside of
considerable expei-ioiu-o and should
possess the element of completeness,
A short bill was passed amending
the Kootenay bill of the previous
session. The amendment aims ut
preventing the eompuny from carrying tho trade of Kootenay into foreign channels. There were u number
of amendments mado to the school
act, but as the act was published in
a late issue of Tin-: Columbian it
will not be necessary tp specify the
changes. Wo may repeat, however,
that we take decided ground against
the establishment of free high schools.
In the present condition of the province our revenue is too smull ond our
wants too largo for such a Bystem.
It is quite certain that a number of
new public schools will have to be
established very soon, and the appropriation for educational purposes
already amounts to the largo sum of
$74,000. One of the most, stringent
acts of the session is tho Chinese bill.
Under the provisions of this net the
Chinese iu British Columbia wil
find it exceedingly diflicult to avoid
contributing a very respectable sum
to tho public revenue. The Chinese
immigration act is a prohibition pure
and simple. The act relating to the
law of evidence permits the parties
to a suit to testify in a case. The
crown lands act and the ciown titn
ber act are long and very important,
and we shall refer to them more jut
ticularly hereafter, Thero have beon
made some amendments to the municipal net, und the jurors uct, and one
of the last bills authorizes the government to borrow $250,000 in tho
event of tho failure of the settlement
bill. The work of the session litis
udded a number of useful measures
to tho statute book, und in the bills
passed generally there is ovidenco of
a jnst conception of the circumstance's
and wants of the proviuce,
The Work or (he Session.
During the session of tho local
legislature just closed thirty-five bills
were passed. There were a number
of other bills before the house, somo
of whioh were withdrawn nud others
defeated. Towards the closo of tho
session it seems that members were
seized with a determination to strangle every measure that camo before
them, and some important private
bills went into tho waste basket m a
sacrifice to this momentary madness,
The first bill of importance wus that
giving effect to the amended agreement by which the differences between tho local and federal governments were to be adjusted. This
measure was discussed at some
length, but tho discussion went little
beyond a review of the debate called
out by tho same measure at the previous session. The bill is one of the
most important that has'engoged the
attention of the house for many
years. It ia full of promise to British Coiumbin, and hns boen accepted
throughout the country generally aa
the most prudent settlement of disturbing questions that could bo hoped
for under the circumstances. We
do not suppaie nuy pel-son who understands tho whole eircmnstuncos
will say that the settlement bill secures nil that in fairness belongs to
us; but it is infinitely better that
we should make some concessions
now rather thnn lose the substantial
benefits secured to ub by that mens
ure. The bill relating to the legal
professions is ono of considerable importance, although it possesses little
The C. P. It. Loan.
SOME INDEPENDENT PRESS OPINIONS.
Vrtnn tlio Monctm-y Times.
In this tirat lien und tho apparently
facilo means of foreclosure provided
for default, wo confess we havu not
unbounded faith. Ono appeal of this
kind for government aid is almost invariably followed by another; mul the
usual courso is for concession to follow
concession; a first lien becomes a second, a third uud in tho ond loses its
vuluo entirely. Tho loan is for seven
yoars, and full explanation of how repayment is to bo made, and whence
tho means uro to come, will no doubt
be given for the satisfaction or amusement of parliament. But will tho
promises held out bo fulfilled? Will
tho comnany bo in a position to fulfil
thein'/ Will it oven rofmin from asking, at sumo future time, still further
aid i Ou all these points thero lies
the dark shadow of uncertainty. Parliament, in voting the aid, as it is
pretty certain to do, will he taking a
leap in the dark,
From (lie Weok.
The Canadian Pacific Oninpimy was
given such privileges as have nover
before been given by a froo self-governing people, to onablo it '-id const mot
a railway from tho Pacific Ocean cast-
ward to Callendur. Frum that point
independent and competing mads wore
to carry the traffic to the seaboard, the
Canadian Pacific being run on terms
perfectly fair to all. Since that timo
the company, instead of confining its
attention to its work, has beon playing
a grab gamo for the trade through to
the Atlantic, not only that by its own
lino, but that which comes via Chicago as well. It has spent money with
a prodigul hand in buying up eastern
lines, npparontly dotormined to seotiro
by this means us perfect a monopoly
in thu east as that secured to it by law
iu tho west. This brought tho new
magnates into collision with the Grand
Trunk, and it was not until aftor the
crash that they realized thoy had run
against a stronger corporation thnn
their own. Now thoy conio back to
the government to have their broken
credit repaired, Tho government cannot for very shame rifuso, for nothing
could so discredit this administration
ns to havo tho Canadian Pacifio fail.
But mure thnn this, Canada horself
dare nut refuse these demands, however groat or however impudently put
forward. Even woro a liberal party
in power to-day tho demands of tho
company would bo grunted, poihupB
with a worse grace than will be shown
now; still they would bo granted.
There is ouo point in this bargain
which, though a comparatively small
matter in itaolf, indicates how fully
tho company is nmutor of thosituatiuii.
This is that tho million dollars left
with tho government oh a pitiful pre-'
tonco of security for thu fulfilment of
the contract is to be given up,

NUMBER 16
The Case of Weekes.
The WVekos bribery case tins ended in partial failure. It wiil be
remembered tliat Weekes got into
the wrong: committee room et Stratli-
rop, Ont,, during tlio late election
campaign, and blurted out a lot of
political secrets which were for the
faithful only. His statements were
published by the enemy, and to counteract the damaging effects of this
exposure Weekes was induced to
sign an affidavit contradicting the
whole reported interview. For this
be was brought up on a charge of
pirjury by the Reform lights. The
case has been in progress now for
several weeks. It seams that the
original affidavit had beeu destroyed,
and iu the absence of it a conviction
could not be made. The evidence
brought out at the trial, however,
seems to have fully sustained the
facts as first published. In giving
judgment the magistrate intimated
that there was very little doubt
respecting the guilt of Weekes, although the absence of the original
affidavit forced him to dismiss the
case. Although in this caso the
criminal did not receive his lawful
due, the exposure has been such
that the lesson may not be alto*
gether lost. Political bribery and
corruption are very much too common iu Canada, and it is hoped every
case that comes to light may be exposed and punished with the utmost
severity.
General Gordon.
The following extract from a San
Francisco  paper will  be read with
much interest at the present time:—
"For weeks past the eyes of the
whole world have been turned on
the movements of General Charles
Gordon, whose wonderful administrative ability us a soldier, and whose
courage, whicli in others would be
termed   fool hardiness, lias   ted the
Chinese  and the Arabs to believe
that ho bears a charmed life.   As
one of his biographers, his cousin,
A. Egmont  Hakt, has suid, he is a
man of the heroic order.   In 1852
he was an unknown lieutenant of
the English Royal Engineers,   Today ho is a mandarin of the highest
order  in   the service of China, u
pacha in the service of the Porte,
and a Major-General of the English
army.   His greatness has not been
of his own seeking, for, although
his name is honored wherever his
lot has been cast, no man has more
studiously shunned enviable  notoriety, or so persistently and disinterestedly refused  reward and honois
when proffered bim.   His latest biographer is his cousin, who, while
he had better facilities than any one
else   who might have undertaken
the task of giving to the world the
history of his life, is still liable to
be too generous in his praise.   As,
for instance, when he tells ua that
Gordon lias chosen the highest of all
types—the life of Christ—for a pattern.   This, however true it may be,
is suggestive of flattery.   It is, however, beyond all possibility of doubt
that his aim in life haa been ever to
do his duty, uud that his principles
to him are dearer than any other
virtue.   This is exemplified by the
way in which ho flogged and drove
away with his celebrated blackthorn
stick   the  envoys of  the Chinese
Emperor, who were the bearers of
10,0000 taels to him as u present
and a reward for his services.   But
the cause of hts indignation was the
treachery of the Chinese leaders ut
tbe capture of Soochow.   They had,
it will  be remembered,  butchered
the Wang rebels after they hod sur
rendered to Gordon, on the pledge
of bia protection being given.   On
tbis occasion it ia said that Gordon
for  once discarded bis stick, and
arming himself, sought the Governor's quarters, resolved to kill him
for his treachery.   Li Hung Chung
secreted himself, however.   An explanation followed, and (o-duy the
Chinese Commander-in Chief, who is
laying out the plans for the Chinese  cimpaign  into   Tonquin, and
General Gordon are firmer friends
than ever.     Gordon accepted the
yellow jacket, and among the many
medals given him was one from the
Empress of China, of solid gold,
which he valued exceedingly. Years
afterward, it is said, that when the
cotton famine was at its height in
Manchester, he took this particular
medal, erased the inscription, sold it
for -£I0 and sent the money anonymously to Canon Miller for the relief of the poor.   For six years he
worked steadily on the defences of
the Thames, employing all his leisure
time in rescuing uud teaching rugged children and doing missionary
work among neglected boys.
In 1871 Gordon was appointed
British Commissioner to the European Commission on the Danube,
and io 1874 he entered the service
of tbt KfaffUrt, wfuiing tha salary
of £10,000 per annum and aoqept-
ing only .£2,000, whicli had been hia
pay as Commissioner, As Governor-Gene rn I of Soudan lie acquired
a greater knuwlege of the country
than tho Arabs possess. Ho made
bitter war against the slavedtalers
and gained the affection of tike entire people by his energy, daring
and firmness, His next appointment, that of Private Seeretoiy to
the-'Earl of Ripon, Viceroy of
India, wus distasteful to him and be
resigned it almost immediate]/:after
accepting it. 'War being imminent
between China and Russia he was
immediately summoned to Canton,
where he was met by his old friend
Li Hung Chang, -.fho fell on his
neck and kissed him. Through his
advice the Chinese were firmed with
breech-loaders, rockets iu the--placo
of cumbrous cannon and mortars
for the defense of the eta coast and
plenty of torpedoes. His suppression of the Tai Ping rebellion justified all the confidence reposed in
him, and it was said of him then:
"The armies of China are of Gordon's making, and in wars yet to
be, the spirit of her ever victorious
General will still be her guidance."
The secret of Gordon's success, in
the opinion of his biographer, lies
in the fact that he wus a "Soldier
of the Cross," who fought and conquered much us Columbus voyaged
and Cromwell ruled. He is nlso
compared to Stonewall Jackson, as
being a man of the sauie type. On
one occasion ho is reported to hnve
said: "I have my hopes of u triumphant mutch to Frascher, I have
really no troops with me, but I
have the presence of the Shekiimh
(the presence of God), and I do like
trusting to Him und not to men."
Undoubtedly be has set out to Khartoum in this same spirit, an expedition which for daring und enterprise renders all his previous works
insi/"'iiicaiit iu comparison. Not at
the head of an army, but attended
only by u small escort he has
plunged into a country crazed by
revolution nnd maddened by their
successes at Tokar, Tinkat.aiid Bavi-
Tlie treasure which he took
with him to pay off the garrison
at Khartoum, some £104,000, is
alone an incentive to his murder;
and should he succeed in the mission he has undertaken, his expedition will be one of the most
astonishing events of the nineteenth
century. His overy movement is
anxiously watched by hundreds of
thousands of friends in the New
World us well ns the Old, and his
safe arrival will be greeted with
universal joy wherever the iinuie of
Chinese Gordon is known."
