current Events and Opinions.
I£ every public building iu London should be destroyed by Irish
dynamite, the result would be, not
Irish independence, but Irish extermination. Curlyle's cynical suggestion that the true Irish policy would
be to put the island under water
for twenty-fow Hours would Iwcome
the purpose of England. The atrocities of the French Revolution are
explicable. They were the mad
outbreak of a misery and brutality
which the government had fostered,
and for which it promised no relief. But this kind of explanation
is wanting to the dynamite terrorists, Tlieir conduct might have
been extenuated as nt least not surprising during the height of the
abominable oppression of tbe penal
laws. But for nearly a century
there has been a constantly advancing relief of Irish suffering and
correction of injustice in Ireland,
until now there remains no abuse or
inequality for which constitutional
agitation is not the surest remedy.
—G.   W. Curtis, in Harper's Maya-
Following the recent develop
ments in the use of dynamite shells
in common field cannons charged
with powder is»a new departure in
the manufacture of cannon. It
comes from the apparently endless
variety of uses made of mild, or
Bessemer process, steel, and is probably the most astonishing application yet made of that metal. In
1880, ahout tho time mild steel
oame largely into the market, the
president of a company manufacturing seamless brass and copper
pipe, concluded to try mild steel
ns a substitute in certain directions
for the more expensive brass, copper ami other metals used in his
establishment. Tho process of manufacture was simple. A plute of
metal was placed over a die aiuj a
mandrel forced the plate into it just
as a lndy might placo a piece of
tissue paper over her thimble und
then force it in with her finger,
The mandrel would force the metal
into a shape like a deep bowl, with
sides of uniform thickness. By
repeating this process with other
dies and mandrels, hydraulic presses
being used to shove tho mandrel
through the die, the plate of steel
eventually became a steel tube of
uniform thickness and perfect bore
nnd circumference. Tho steel was
found to work as easily as the brass
or copper, and no cliango of tools
was necessary. As steel was cheaper than copper, the advantage of
substituting drawn steel seamless
tubes for brass or copper ones was
manifest. But the saving in price
was altogether tlio smallest gain.
To the astonishment of those engaged in the experiment, the steel
was found to have radically changed
its character iu the process. It
went into the machine soft and
pliable. It came out, although
drawn cold, a beautifully tempered
spring. If a tube was compressed,
it would instantly resume its shape
when the pressure was removed.
If struck with a hammer it rang
like a bell, while tests of the increased strength of the metal showed
n change that was wonderful. To
fully test its strength a boiler of
the sizo and style used beside every
range in New York flats was made
from the steel by this process. The
metal of the boiler was drawn out
to the thickness of nbout one-thirtieth of an inch, and it then stood
a pressure of GOO pounds to the
square inch, giving way when that
limit wus passed. Aftor tins und
other tests the experimenters began
to wonder why a gun barrel could
not be made of steel by this process
that would hr superior to any other.
They first made a tube of six inches
bore and half an inch thickness of
metal. This was drawn cold. Then
another was made of the same
thickness of metal, nnd of a bore
that would permit it to bo shoved
over the lirst ono by tho hydraulic
press when it wns warmed, the first
remaining cold. A third was then
drawn over tho two, and thus was
completed a cannon. It was found
that it would stand a wator pressure
of 70,000 pounds to tho square inch.
This cannon hns been sent to Handy
Hook, and tho oflicurs of the artillery corps will try to burst it by the
usual tests applied to new cannon,
They havo beforo them the astonishing spectacle of a gun that will
throw a solid shot weighing 100
pounds, although the metal is only
ono inch and a half thick around
tho powder. To people accustomed
to seeing the common cannon, euor
mously thick at the breach, it will
seem incredible that an inch and a
half of this metal will serve tho purpose better. It is woll known lhat
ono causo of the high price of illuminating gas to tho consumer is tbe
great quantity lost by leakage
through the cast-iron pipes used, Iu

leakage of the natural gas was so
great- that serious and fatal explosions occurred. Every foot of the
east-iron mains tliere has in consequence been ordered out, The great
size of the bore needed prevented
the use of lap-welded wrought-irou
pipe, and tlio seamless pipe of paper
thickness will be usofl, its great
density being proof against tiny
leakage of gas or liquid under any
pressure. The tendency to corrode
even under ground is very small,
but this objection to steel will be
wholly obviated by coatings eithor
of tin or aluminium bronze within
and without. The bteel pipe is not
only better, but cheaper. Milk cans
are being made of the new steel
tubing. The bottom is an eighth of
au inch thick, aud the sides about
one-fourteenth of an inch/ The
hanging of the most vigorous Yankee
cheese-maker or of the most reckless
brakeman on a milk train cannot
dent them or seriously injure them.
The experimenters hnve also turned
tlieir attention to clock springs, und
they have found thnt the new process not only makes a cheaper, but
a superior quality of spring. Just
what change tlie metal undergoes iu
this process of drawing has not been
determined. That it becomes fibrous
is plain. Iron drawn out into wire
becomes librous also, but it does not
become a tempered spring.— N, Y,

by-laws and letters patent. Several
applications nnd petitions from the
outlying settlements fur the construction uf mads and bridges were received
and considered. Bonrd of works reported having let for $27 contract for
fencing municipal lot. A petition
signed by Samuel Robertson and 40
others, asking uid for the construction
of n bridge across Kanaka creek, wns
unanimously endorsed by thu council
and ordered to be forwarded to the
government. The reeve was asked to
forward to the lion. Mr. Trutch tho
squatter's petition, nud to urge the
necessity of some relief in the way of
making roads. A publio highway in
township 12 is obstructed by the rail
way contractor, nnd it wns resolved
that tliu mutter he referred to the
Dominion government agent. The
bonrd of wotks wns instructed to let
hy public competition tliu construction
of a rond between Uobortaun's and
Baker's, the clearing or tbu road recently established in township 12, the
opening of the road through the Wide,

charged ou all taxes unpaid on the
15th Dee. hut. Tho following appro
print inns wore mado; FiUputrick road,
§30; Webber road, 830; Blackstock
rond, 830; Kyle road, §40. Mr. Mn-
hun kindly granted the council permission to utilizu his farm crossing nnd
approach thereto. It was resolved
that Mr. Bmphy be notified that the
public croasing will be required
trunk road at the place indicated. It
was resolved that an urgent appeal be
made lo thu government fur nid towards thu trunk road. The clerk was
requested to usk Mr. Oeo. Turner,
C.E,, to survey tho road recently gazetted in township 12. The cemetery
by-law passed its firat reading. The
council then adjourned till May 2nd,
to meet as a court of revision, at 11
o'clock, n.m.
Building Nile steamers.
The shipbuilding yard of John Elder
& Co., at Qovan, is at present the
scene of dny and night labor in the
construction uf Nile at cantors for service in the Soudan. In nil eleven
boats nre being built by this tirm for
the government. The whole of the
vessels ure thin steel, flat-buttotned,
double-decked, stern-wheelers, drawing one foot six inches of water. One
of thein is 138 ft. long by 23 ft. brond,
and the othor ton nre 02 by 20 ft, each.
The hulls nro uf steel, thero being 4
Ib. to the square foot, which gives a
plate ime-eiglitb of an inch thick. Of
this framework the depth amidships is
four feet. Divided into compartments
by steel bulk-heads, every boat will
have its buoyancy assured, even in tho
event of one or two portion* of tlio
shell being injured. The lower pari of
the vessel is not intended to contain
anything but water-bid last. The paddle-method of propulsion with tho
stem wheel is to be adopted, and considerable speed is expected to bo attained on the broad, smooth reaches of
tho Loner Nile. Just uow nil tho
eleven boats arc being built simultaneously in different portions of the
yard. The operatives numbor over
1,200, and the greater proportion of
them find employment on this job.
Cost ov Stoitino Railway Trains.,
Every stop of a train costs money to
a railway company, Recent statistics
kept on u certain trunk line showed
that during a given yenr the 350 daily
trains made 7,000 extra stops every
twenty-four hours, the traffic being
largely suburban. Experiments showed nlso that each stop cost 42 centH,
reckoned largely in e:.tra time to um-
ployees who, fur that numbor of stops,
nut in, iu tho aggregate, 3tH> e^tra
hours por day, malum,' u total loss to
the company of hourly ?50,000 a'year.
According to an exchange, at a railway festival iu the West, tho following
striking toast was given: "Our mothers
—tho only faithful tenders who nevoi
misplaced a switch."

There is not much hope now of a
peaceful solution of the difficulties
between Russia and Great Britain.
Both nations serin to regard war as
almost certain, and preparations are
going forward with all possible
haste. If it comes to war, the struggle will undoubtedly be a terrible
one, and may involve the whole of
Europe before it reaches a conclusion, Tlie event is not pleasant to
contemplate, but we may hope that
the horrors of war may be mitigated
as far as modern discoveries can
mitigate them.
In consequence of the north-west
rebellion, and the enormous cost of
sending troops and material to that
fur off region, there is likely to be a
serious reduction in the ordinary
federal estimates for the coming
year. It is expected the estimates
will be pruned and cut down so as
to adjust them as far as possible to
the new condition of things brought
about by Riel. Thus the whole
country must suffer for the depredations of a scoundrel who ought to
have been hanged long ago for bis
-.-rimes, ft cannot lie denied that
Sir John made a grave mistake when
ho bribed Riel to leave the country
in 1870.	
As people become acquainted with
tlie Chinese restriction act passed
by the United States government,
its utter inefficiency becomes the
more apparent. Our readers will
remember some of the ridiculous
scenes which occurred in San Francisco last year over these imported
celestials who produced certificates
and resorted to all kinds of strate-
gems to gain admission to the coun.
try. Under one pretext or another
th" Chinese continue to Hock into
San Francisco, and tho decisions of
tbe courts are such that tbe restriction aet does not touch them, The
Bulletin thinks it may come to pass
that the restriction act will yet be
found one of the most effective
means of encouraging Chinese immigration into thi? United States.
ft is gratifying to find tbat in
some parts of Ireland at least the
Prince and Princess of Wales are
meeting with a very cordial reception. It required no small amount
of courage on the part of these people to undertake an Irish tour in
the face of existing circumstances
and sentiments; and the fact that
it has been fearlessly undertaken,
no doubt from a sense of duty, is
undoubted evidence that the future
king of Great Britain is no coward.
It may be perfectly true that an attack upon the prince in Ireland
would be most injudicious, and
would cover the dynamite faction
with evp,rlasting disgrace. Nevertheless, some screaming patriot
might fancy it an occasion for acquiring a notoriety which could
never again be met with. Tiio
dynamiters do not always by any
means stop to reflect upon consequences when tbe temptation comes
to perpetrate an outrage. We hope
their royal highnesses will not only
have a safe and pleasant tour, but
that they will return with the proud
satisfaction of having captured the
hearts of all Ireland.
vice both ways will become necessary. There is suro to be growth
and progress in the Fraser valley
during the present season. Many
of the now settlers who took up land
last year were not able to bring anything to the market, as their operations were begun too late in the
yenr. But this.season the fruits of
their labor will begin to appear.
The completion of the C.P.R will
most likely have a beneficial ('fleet
upon the industries of the country.
The large and expensive terminal
works which will become absolutely
necessary will give employment to a
large force of men, who will be consumers of produce and manufactures. Before these works have been
completed, there will have been
large additions made to our permanent population; and an enlarged
demand will be created for the
country's products. All these items
mean increased trade on the river,
for the Frasor valley is the great
agricultural region from which the
eity of Now Westminster and the
cities of Burrard Inlet will bo supplied. It has already heen pointed
out l>y Thk Columbian that this
city is sure to remain tho centre of
that trade. She has the advantage
of being situated upon a river which
is navigable for a hundred miles
into the interior, and she is very
easy of access from all the settlements in tho district. When sho
has been connected by railway witii
the O.P.R., she will have facilities
for trade whioh no other city on the
mainland can possess. It is of very
groat importance that we should
encourage river traffic, because
everything tlmt comes by the river
comes to us. To this end there
ought to be a steamer owned and
controlled in this city suitable for
the river trade ns far up as Yale.
This matter has been informally discussed by the Board of Trade, but
the discussion has not beon fruitful
of result. It is believed that a
steamer suitable for tho trade could
be built aud equipped for $20,000,
and that she would earn enough to
pay a very handsome dividend on
the investment. Surely thero are
moneyed men enough in this city to
subscribe this sum, and to place the
city and the river settlements in a
position of independence with respect to the river trade. So long
ns we leave ourselves at the mercy
of outside companies, who have no
special interest in the district, so
long must we look for disappointments and neglect. Let the matter be considered with all seriousness, and without delay. Whatever
tbe people of this eity and tho river
settlements agree upon, they can
carry. Let them act with wisdom
and determination.

We believe there is a great denl
of satisfaction nlong tlie river unci
in the interior on account of the
steamers resuming their trips to
Yale. There is no reason, beyond it
selfish desire for sudden enrichment
on tho part of Mr. Onderdonk nnd
the O.P.N,Co., why the steamers
should not hivfl been running to
Yale nil last season. Tlie trip by
wnter is certainly beyond comparison more pleasant than by railway.
It may not be so rapid, but it is
safer and moro certain. It is not
often the steamers are long delayed,
but hitherto delays and accidents
havo been it most common occurrence on tlio railway. And if it
does take a longer time on the
steamer, there is compensation in
the circumstance thut one can find
accommodation infinitely superior
to anything ollered by the road.
Now that the C.P.N.Co, has determined to run its steamers through
to Yale, traffio on the river promises
to bt quite lively. There will be at
least four steamers a week betweeu
this city and Yale, and five between
this city and Victoria. It is to bo
lioped tliat trado will revive to such
nn extent as to keep all these steam-
era fully employed, and that the

A Narrow Escape^' — The train
which left Port Moody last Saturday
morning had not proceeded far when
tho express nnd baggage cars jumped
the track. The engineer does not seem
to have noticed the accident at all, and
proceeded at full speed, dragging the
two oars over the ties for a distance of
about 1500 feet. The mail cleric jumped off, and tho express messenger
wanted to but couldn't. He shouted
with all his might, but the engineer
heard nothing of tho disturbance.
Finally the train came to a stop within
a short distance of the first trestle, and
whnt was left of it had to bo taken
back to Port Moody. Tho passengers
were much frightened, and one of them
was slightly hurt. Thero was no signal rope ou tho train.
India's Loyalty.—A London despatch snys: Recent mail advices from
India differ significantly from the
official telegrams recently received
concerning the loyalty to England of
the native chiefs and people. Tho
official dispatches, it seems, have been
unwarrantably rose - colored. They
have without exception declared that
tho Indian Princes were anxious to
display thoir loyalty to England by
rushing to buttle against the Russians.
Mail advices materially modify the
expectations engendered by official
telegrams, and indicate that there is a
feoliug existing pretty generally among
Indians, whicli under certain circumstances, might provo nny thing but
advantageous to British prestige iu
India, in the event of a stubborn and
prolonged Anglo-Russian conflict. The
native Indian press is nearly unanimous in favor of wur, but careful observers can discern in this newspaper
advocacy of war, wherever it is unhampered, more of'a national Indian
feeling of resistance to Russian aggres-
sian than of sincere loyalty to purely
British iuieresta.
An Honbst Face.— A lottor from
Victoria to tho San Francisco Bulletin
relates tho following: "Not quito
throe years ago, the Princess Louise,
and hur husband, at that time governor-general of Canada, paid a visit
to Victoiin. Anent that visit many
interesting instances ara recorded.
Every morning, thu Princess, very
simply nttircd, was in tho habit of
taking a brisk walk through the
city. She often entered the various
stores and mudu trifling purchases;
frequently she was not recognized,
aud many humorous situations were
occasioned thereby. Oue morning as
she was passing by a littlo toy shop
she saw two poorly clad urchins gazing longingly at the dazzling allurements displayed iu tho shop window.
Sho stopped nnd enquired what they
particularly wished, adding thnt if
they wuuld tell her sho would buy
it. Two cheap and gaudily bedizened
dolls had attracted the children's attention, and the Princess stepped inside tho shop to mako the purchase.
The amount was 25 cents, but alas,
the Princess had left her purse at
home, aud the little children's faces
began to fall as thoy saw their prospect growing fainter and fainter. Annoyed at the oversight she turned to
the shopman aud asked him if he
would trust her a littlo while, The
old shopkeeper, all unaware of the
identity of his royal- customer, scanned her uver attentively and finally
remarked! 'Well, yos. You have an
honest face, and I guess it is safe
enough.'"
Railway Ratbs.—Wo have much
pleasure in publishing the following
extract from au article on railway rates
which appeared in the Colonist of Suturdny: "On all sides it is conceded
that the rates are too high. "The railway company aro milking the country,"
remarked n merchant of Now Westminster on Tuesday, "and will soon
leavo only a dry bag where they found
n full one." This is a vory serious state
of affairs. Wo aro not averse to monopolies whero tho rates charged aro
not oppressive and only a quid pro quo
is aslied for a valuable service rendered. Wu cau comprehend n condition
whore a monopoly which possesses no
exclusive rights might be bf benefit to
a community. Rut thu railway in
Hii tish Columbia possesses auexclnsivo
right, Tho conditions that called it
into existence are such that no other
company would find profitable au investment in a similnr undertaking.
Therefore, as they have the field to
themselves it would be much tn their
credit if they wore to "temper the
wind to tho shorn lamb," (tho public)
so ns to create a feeling of satisfaction
in place of tho discontent that now
prevails. There should be, nt once, a
sharp reduction in the rates nsked for
freight over the line. Whore steamboats and bull teams compete successfully with a railway fur the carrying
trade the only inference that can be
drawn is that lhe charges on the mil-
way nre exeessivu nnd should be greatly reduced. The merchants nnd people
of tho province cannot pay the rates
now demanded, Profits are too smnll
nnd business too dull. Thu railway
company have it in thoir power to afford relief ami they ought lu do it
gracefully before a storm of public indignation shall break over their heads.
Wu yield tu no mnn iu admiration of
tho persovorence, pluck and ability
with whieh the vfutk of building the
line in Uritish Columbia has been
prosecuted; but tho press cannot remain silent while what it conceives to
ho n grent public wrong is being committed," :"'    .-.-

Tub Asylum.—We wero much pleased to learn, upon visiting the lunatic
asylum the other day, that the patients
are in every respect greatly improved
since tho new arrangements have beeu
put into operation. Wo found a number of the patients working within the
new fence lately erected, and apparently enjoying the light and liberty which
could not be allowed in the old enclosure, A very handsome lawn has been
made in front of tbe medical superintendent's residence. It is as level us
a floor, and was entirely constructed
by the patients. They are now engaged in grading and leveling the grounds,
making roads, and preparing pnrt of
the enclosure for a vegetable garden.
Dr. Bentley, the medical superintendent, informs us that tho health of tho
inmates has been greatly improved
since they havo been able to exorcise
themselves outside tho wall. They
aro quite fond of work, and the employment not only improves thoir physical condition, but has had a marked
effect upon the mental disorders under
which they aro laboring. Those who
wore tho most violent and troublesome
have become quito tractable nnd contented, and thero is no sickness at all
in the institution. The wisdom of the
changes which were made last winter
in this institution is now quite apparent, nnd it will be possible to make it
what it was intended—n retreat for
those atllicted with mental disorders,
instead of n gloomy prison as it hns
been. Dr. Bentley informs us thnt
the patients nre exceedingly foud of
reading, aud ongerly peruse any newspapers supplied to them. So strong is
this propensity that some of them have
been known even to read the Mainland
Guardian with apparent satisfaction.
Of course these were persons suffering
from tho more extreme forms of mental disorder, and who had totally lost
the power of mental discrimination.
The superintendent has been much
encouraged with the results already
seen of tho benefits arising from the
enlargement of the asylum and
grounds, and believes that tho usefulness of tho institution has been greatly
increased.

A Phlnney-slied Fiction—The
"SwaniD-Aiigel" not Dead.
Editou Columiiia.w—I see you have
published an article entitled "Swamp
Angel" purporting to he an account of a
visit to a well-known Cariboo character
hy a person named Phiuney, Let me
inform you that, with the exception of
the fact of the visit to Henr Lake by the
said Phlnney, almost the whole "yarn"
is a most absurd and ridiculous fiction.
The lake in question is only twenty miles
from Barkerville, and it is nothing like
so large as stated by Plunney. But I
need not attempt a correction of the
writers various fictions. Suffice it to aay
that the "Swamp Angel" is not dead -
that he hunts and traps and fishes as of
old; and during n visit here the other
day was very much amused nt seeing the
imaginative nonsense published by the
vain-glorious Phiuney. But what ubeut
that "sealed packet" and that $5,000?
Would it not bo in order for the romancing Phiuney, when he finds he has been a
little "ton previous with his obituary notice and his opening of the packet, to return it and its contents to the still very
much alive "Swamp Angel"!1 By all
means—if he can.   Yours,     Cariboo.

Antleh's Cruek.—I presume you
havo had telegraphed nn account of
the break in the Nason company's
drift at Antler creek on the 20th
March. It is surprising that either of
the two miners working in the drift at
tho timo of the accident escaped alive.
The shaft was 00 feet in depth through
the solid rock; the drift 100 feet iu
length nlso in tho rock towards the
central bed of the oreek. A few days
before the accident soft rock was
reached nnd a break into the gravel
overhead made. Fearing trouble this
wns timbered up, that end of the
drive closed nnd n new drivo begun.
This wns being cautiously pushed forward, properly timbered, when, ub tho
two miners employed "on tho face,"
Hnrry McDermott and James Blair,
weru making things secure for tlio
night, they saw to tlieir horror that
the face was breaking in. Finding it
impossible to stay the break they began h retreat towards the shaft, but a
torrent of water, saud nnd gravel burst
in, pursued, caught and overwhelmed
thein ere thoy had gone twenty feet.
The survivor McDermott wns enrried
helplessly along, ns ho describes it,
"liken leaf in a whirlwind," forced
iuto the pump shaft and rising with
thu advancing water grasped iho ladder und made his escape. The noise
of the cave-in was heard at the neighboring cabins like a peal of thunder.
Help was instantly on tho ground.
The foreman promptly descended both
shafts ami groped about iu (he mpiilly
rising water for the unfortunate Blair,
but could find nothing of him In n,
very few minutes thu shafts were full
and rescue hopelcs*. Tho body was
recovered on Sunday morning about
tweiny-tiro feet down (hu main shaft,
hoad downward, firmly wedged amid
broken timbers and gravel. Thu deceased was a native of Ontario, a
young mnn of steady and industrious
habits aiul generally respected. Au
inquest was held on ihu budy mi Monday by Coroner Stone, and after a full
enquiry a \erdicl whb returned of rlfcflt-

Montreal, March 31.—There is no
change in the military situation here.
Tho O.'th regiment has received its equipment from Ottawa and will be able to
leave by the Canadian Pacific railway
to-morrow evening. Mr. Baumgarten,
master of the fox-hounds and at the
head of the great sugar refinery here,
has offered the government to equip 50
mounted men with horses and provide
everything necessary for them at his own
expense, to go at once to the Northwest
to aid in suppressing the rebels, Mr.
Baumgarten will accompany the men, all
of whom arc members of the Hunt Club
and gentlemen of position. The cost of
tho horses alone is estimated at $10,000.
Mr. Alf. Perry has ottered to proceed to
the Northwest with a party of his own
loyal friends and capture Riel, the author of the rebellion, and bring hiin to
the city if the government offers a reward of five thousand for the success of
the enterprise. The band under Mr.
Perry's command will defray their own

Dublin*, April 9.—The levee given today at Dublin Castle by the Prince nnd
Princess of Wales was larger than any
held in Ireland since the visit of Queen
Victoria in 1340. A manifesto to the
people of Ireland concerning the present
visit of the Prince and Princess of
Wales has been issued to-day. The
document is called a Parnell manifesto,
and purports to bo direct from Parnell to
the nationalists in Ireland. The manifesto declares no good reason can be seen
why the Prince of Wales is entitled to
any recoenition in Ireland from nuy per*
sons except land owners and place hunters, who are fattening on the country's
poverty. It compares the Prince to a
government election agent, going about
with smiles and unmeaning promises
dealt eut lavishly as the price for continued power. The Prince of Wales
with his sou, Prince Albert Victor, and
a small party of friends, spent the afternoon iu visiting some of the stums of the
city, entering some of the worst dwellings. The Prince freely denounced tlieir
broken floors and roofs and sanitary
wants, and said he hoped suoh dwellings
would be soon swept from the face of the
earth, at the same time expressing his
sympathy with the occupants. Mobs of
the uncouth and wild-looking men, women and children continually surrounded
the Prince, who received them smiling
and was greeted in return with load
cheers. He shook hands heartily with
many of those nearest bim, aud old people invoked blessings upon the heads of
tho Prince and Princess of Wales and
Queen Victoria.

London, April 10,—In the House of
Commons to-dny Gladstone said that a
reply was received from Russia last
night. This stated that Russia had already asked Gen. Komaroff to explain
his conduct in attacking the Afghans at
Penjdeh. Gladstone added that Russia
had not received Gen. KomarofTs explanation. In regard to tlie question of the
present occupation of Penjdeh, Gladstone
stated that he had been in communication upon this subject with Sir Edward
Thornton, British ambassador at St.
Petersburg, and that tho latter had Informed him that the Russians do not
occupy Penjdeh, but have retired tothe

London, Apr. 11.—The Russian agents
in Loudon have visited the offices of a
number of steamship companies, aud
have made heavy bids for the purchase
of their fast going vessels. The extraordinary offers for these steamers aroused
the suspicions of the officers of the companies, who upon enquiry became convinced that if the vessels wore sold they
would lie used by the Russian government for war purposes, and so they reported the facts to the British admiralty.
It was stated at the Foreign office this

London, April 11.—In official circles
it is believed that the latest communication from Russia on the Penjdeh incident
has not in the least lessoned tho tension
between England and Russia.
St. Pbteesboeq, April 11.—The
Journal de St. Petersburg, speaking evidently by official inspiration, comments
upon the recent government utterances
iu the British parliament upon the Penjdeh incident as premature. It says it
thinks it would be preferable for English
ministers to have suspended judgment
until the receipt of more complete information. They should not have acted
ou the supposition that it was unlikely
tlmt Russian generals were acquainted
with the intentions of the Russian government. They should have borne iu
mind that a collision such as that which
occurred in Kushk is always possible in
tbe presence of a violent and undisciplined
Asiatic population. The Penjdeh incident, concludes the journal, was certainly
an untoward event, because it may adversely affect negotiations ponding between Russia and England, which still
justifies hopo for peace, The war feeling here is overwhelmingly strong, The
Czar appeared at a theatre last evening
and the audience, still enthusiastic orer
the news from Penjdeh, on the general
assumption that KomarofTs conduct had
the imperial approval, rose when they
saw the Czar and shook the building
with an ovation of applause.

Winnipeg, Apr. 12.—While no reli-
ablci information can be liad to-night
from the west, rumor has it that the 90th
battalion had a skirmish with Kiel's
party within thirty miles of Humboldt,
and eight men were killed, but a dispatch
just received does not confirm the statement. More troops go west to-morrow,
and although this is Sunday nothing can
be seen on the streets but soldiers and
cannon,
Winnipeg, Apr. 12.—The news of a
battle between the 00th battalion and
the rebels is not confirmed, but is still
believed iu the streets here, though it
can be traced to no reliable source, All
wires from the west are controlled by
the Canadian Pacific Railway, and tele-
grams from the seat of war arc inspected
by the officers in command, and official
messages are sent to the governor in
cipher. Much uneasiness is felt here
over the report, although the rumor is
discredited by the authorities.
St. PKTERammo, Apr. 13.—The official
message publishes the following telegram
from Geu. Komaroff, dated April lst:
Ou the 25th March our detachment approached Kupri. When near the bridge
we saw au entrenchment occupied by
Afghans. Iu order to avoid a conflict I
stationed my troops five versts, a little
over three miles, from the Afghan's position. Negotiations with Captain Yates,
a member of Sir Peter Lumsden's forco,
commenced ou the 20th, when the Af-
({ban's became convinced that we had an
intention of attacking them. They daily
grew nearer to our camp and ou the 27th
thoy dispatched against a company of
ours a reconiioitering party of three companies, with a gun and some cavalry.
Next day their auducity and arrogance
increasing, they occupied a high commanding position on the left flank of our
camp aud made entrenchments and
placed u cavalry post in the rear of our
line and a picket within gunshot of our
fort. On the 29th I sent the Afghan
commander au energetic summons to
evacuate the left bank of the Kushk
river and the right bank of the Murghab,
as far as the mouth of the Kushk, He
replied that acting on the advice of the
English he would retire beyond the
Kushk. I then sent him a private lotter,
couched in amicable terms, on the 30th.
In order to support my demand I marched with my detachment against the Afghan position, stilt expecting- a pacific
issue, but fire from the Afghan artillery
and au attack of tlieir cavalry compelled
me to accept combat.
London, April 13.— The effect of
Gen. Komaroffs detailed statement,
which showed that tho Afghans provoked the recent battle, has been
weakened by the reports received by
the way of Austrain telegraph stations on the Russian frontier, whicli
say that Pendjeh was occupied by Col.
Alikhaiiotf on tho second instant.
General Komaroff states that he was
obliged to occupy Penjdeh in ordor to
stop the pillage of the district by Turcomans and Afghans who had threatened to resume operations. The Russian minister of war has sent a congratulatory message to General Komaroff and has directed him to thank
the troops in the name of tho Czar
and announce to them that all who
took part iu the battle will be rewarded according to their rank,
London, April 13. — Sir Thomas
Brassoy, u junior lord of tho admiralty,

now as if war was actually declared.
We can place Groat Britain's war fleet
iu tho Baltic within six days. We
can stud the seas with cruisers within
twenty six liours. We are ready."
Gen. Wolsely has reached Cairo. It
is roported that Wolscley's presence
in Cairo is fur the purpose of enabling
htm quickly to assume personal direction of operations against Russia in
the event of war. It is now generally
believed that the evacuation of the
Soudan has been docided upon by tho
British cabinet.

Afghan Names.- Accuracy iu .spelling the names of places mentioned in
connection with tlieRusBu-Afuhun dispute iB appealed for by an Anglo Indian
correspondent, who writes the Pall
Mall Gazette: "In all. the pupers, without exception,'I see ^Penjdeh' written,
the real sound being 'Punjdeh'—that
is 'five villages,' 'punj' being five, and
'deli' a territorial division, not necessarily forming a single village, but
generally including several inhabited
places, much as a village or parish at
home often includes subordinate hamlets. Au analogous instance in our
own Indian Empire is 'Punjab,' whieh
signifies five rivers, from 'punj,' five,
and 'ab,' water. Again, 'Pul-i-kuiBhti,'
meaning a brick or masonry bridge,
from 'pul,' bridge, and 'khisht,' brick,
should have the short accent over the
*u' in 'pul,' so us to produce the sound
of pull (a boat) in English. In both
instances tho names are Persian.

the Knglish government toward Russia
concerning the Penjdeh incident. The

by the aggressiveness of public opinion
into a tardy, but evidently determined
attitude of pugnacity. At first Gladstone

From the Toronto Globe,
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It Ib moreover one of
tho most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements ot the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it Is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company iu
providing suitable charters ou the
grounds for their business has been
Warded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question tliat the public approve
tho provision mnde for their convenience
and comfort. Hero a crowd (hay he
seen listening to test performances on
first-cliixs instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved,
Tlie present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It hud its origin in Uowmanville
ahout fifteen years ago, tho stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About teu
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; (Jeorgo Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and Wi S. Russell, superintendent uf the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making wns added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos por month. These nro produced
liy 2.r»0 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 iter mouth. The whole
civilized world Is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, Kngland; Hamburg. Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; aud St. ^|tersburg,
Russia. ^
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of tho Company's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there nre two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the sido
wall of a room, and ia convenient for
comparatively small apartments. Tho
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying n prominent position iu drawing or music room. These
two instruments aro of rosewood, with n
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
(piick and easy, the tone brilliant aud
powerful. In musical quality and np-
jwarance thoy aro equal to the best
American pianos.
Tho organs innde by the Compnny nre
known almost everywhere. Thoy are
manufactured in all styles, nud at all
prices, ranging from $80 to $1,000. Many

A REMARKABLE STORY,
(CODthlttMl. 1
Did Hoster tliiuk she might yet bo
carried away by Ilie Hood of the other's
will ngalnst her own that she took hev
leave so solemnly? It was rather a
a sort of imaginative reflection of
what Bho might have boen doing if—
Sho had gone but & little away when
she met Captain Morgan.
"Why did not you tell me you wero
going out?" he said. "I havo tired
myself now; I can't no with you. I
havo boon enquiring about tho midnight
train for Emma, who did not get off
this morning after ull."
"Ia sho going by tho midnight
train?" Hester asked, with a sonse of
inconvenience in it that sho could
hardly explain.
"Yes, if it is possiblo to get her off,"
suid tho ouptftini "but, my dear, it is
too late for you to walk alone.!'
■'No, oh no! It is only fur this
once," Hestor cried, with involuntary,
passion, unaware.
"My dour child!'' said tlio old man.
Ho was disturbed by her looks. "I
will go in and got an overcoat, and
join you directly, Hostor; for though
I am tired I would rather bo ovor-
tirod than that yuu shuuld walk alone/'
The only way that Hester could defend herself was to hurry away out of
sight beforo he came out again. Sho
had a dark dress, a veil over her face.
Her springy stop indeed wns not ensy
to be mistaken, nor tho outline of her
ulert and vigorous figure, which was
so much unlike loitering. Sho got
away into tho fields by u lonely path,
whore slie could bo safe, ahe thought,
till the timo of her appointment came.
What wus to happen at that appoint'
ment she could not tell. Excitement
was so high in hor veins that sho had
no time to ask herself what she would
answer him if he kept to his intention,
or what she should do. Was it on the
cards still that sho might follow him
to the ond of the world ?
Edward hnd arrived lute, only iu
time for dinner. He got Hester's note
nnd road it with an impatient exclamation.
"Tho little fool!" he suid to himself,
"as if that wns not the very"—and
tore it in n thousand pieces. Ue dressed for dinner vory carefully, us was
his wont, and was very pleasant at table, telling Catherine various incidents
of Ins journey. "You in (1st mako the
•most out of me while you have ino,"
ho said, "for I have a pile of letters in
my room that would mako uny ono ill
to look ut. I must get through thom
to-night, there muy bB something important. It is a pity Harry doesn't
take more of a share."
"I think, for my purt, it is ono of
the best things about him," suid Catherine, "that ho always acknowledges
your superiority. Ho knows he will
nevor set the Thames on fire."
"And why Bhould be?" said Edward,
"a man mny be a vory good mun of
business without thut. I wish he
would go into things mure; then he
would always be ready in case of an
emergency."
"Whatemergency?" said Catherine;
almost sharply. "You uro too far-
seeing, I think."
"Oh. I might die, you know," snid
Edward, with au abrupt laugh.
"Anything might happen," hIiu suid,
■-butthure are many liioi-e likely contingencies to bo provided for. What
id that T she added quickly.
"Return tickets, ma'am," suid the
butler, solemnly, "us dropped out of
Mr. Edward's overcoat."
"Return tickets! You are not going
back again, Edward?"
"I am always running up nnd down,
Aunt Catherine. I constantly take
roturii tickets," lie suid, quietly, pocketing the tickets nnd giving the butlor
a look which ho did uot soon forget,
For thero were two nf them, wliich
Marshall could not understand, As
for Catherine, this give her a little
pang, aho could not tull why. Ilut
Edwnrd hud never found so much to
toll her boforo. Ho kept her amused
during the whole timo of dinner. Afterward ho took her up-stairs into the
draw ing-room, mid put her into hor
favorite chair, and did everything that
a tender son could have done for hur
comfort. It waa growing dusk by this
time nnd he hud uot been nblo to keep
himsolf from giving u glance now nud
then at the sky.
"Do you think we nre going to have
a storm, Edwnrd?" Catherine asked.
"I think it looks a little liko it.
You had botter have your window
ahutt" he suid.
Ho hud nevor been more kind. He
kissed her hnnd and her cheek when
he went nwny, saying it wns possible,
if his letters were very tough, that he
might uot como up-stairs again before
she went to bod.
"Your hand is hot," she said, "my
dear boy. I um afraid you arc a little
feverish,"
"It has heen very warm in town,
and I am always best, you known, in
country' uir," wna what lie said.
Sho sat very quietly for aome time
he hud left hor, then, seeing no appearance of any storm, rose nnd '.polled her window again, tie was almost
too careful of her. Aa slie did so sho
hoard a faint sound below, as of somo
ono softly closing Iho door. Waa it
Edwnrd going out, notwithstanding
his letters ? She put heraelf very closo
to tho window to watch. Hu Iind a
small bug iu his bund, uud stood for a
moment at the gntu looking up and
down; thon ho mmlo a quick step beyond it ua if to meet somo ono. Catherine watched, straining hor eyes
through. She wns not uugry. lt
brought ull her fear, her watchfulness,
back in u moment, ilut if it wus truo
that he lovod Hester, of course he must
wish to see hor—if ahe waa ao
maidenly, so unwomanly as to consent
to come out like thia to meet him.
And was it at hor own very door that
the tryst waa ? This roused Catherine.
She heard a murmur of voices on the
other aide of the grent holly. The
summer air was so soft, overy sound
wub curried by the air. Hore was her
opportunity to discover who it was.
She did not pause to think, but taking
up hur shawl in iter band threw it ovor
hor head as sho stole down-stairs, It
was blaok, aud made hor almost invisible, her dress being black ton. Sho
came out at a side-door, narrowly
escaping the curiosity of Marshall.
The bright day had fallen into a very
dim evening. There was ncithor moon
nor stars. She stole out by the side-
door, avoiding tho path. Her foot-
stops made no sound upon the grass.
Sho crossed the grave! on tiptoe and
wound her way among the shrubberies
till she stood exactly under tho holly
tree. The wall thero was about up to
n man's shoulders, and it was sur-
mountod by a railing. She stood securely undor the shadow of it, with
her heart beating very loudly, and batoned to their voices. Ah, thero could
be no doubt about it. She said to
herself that she nevor had any doubt.
It was tho roice of that girl which an-
Bwevod Edward's low, passionate appeals. There uro some cases in which
honor demands a sacrifice scarcely possiblo. Sho had it in hor power to
satisfy herself at once as to the terms
upon winch thoy were, nnd what thoy
expected nud wished for, Sho hud no
intention of eavesdropping. It was
one of the sins to which Cntherino wns
loast disposed; but to turn back without satisfying horself seemed impossi
bio now.
#.*■*■.■:**       *
It seemed to Hester that bIio had
been for hours out-of-doors, and that
tho lingering Juno evening would never
end. Now nnd then alio met in tho
fields a pnrty of Redborough people
taking a walk—a mother with a group
of children, a father with a taller girl
or boy, a pair of lovers. Thoy all
looked nfter her, wonderint- a littlo
that u young lndy, and one that belonged to the Vornona (for everybody
knew her), should bu out so lute alone.
"But why should she not haven young
mnn too?" tho lovers thought, und felt
a great interest in life question whether
they should meet hor again- and who
he might bo. Rut atill it could not be
said to be dark—tlie wild roses wero
still quite pink upon the hedges. Tho
moments lingered nlong, tho clocks
kept chiming by Intervals. Heater,
by dint of long thinking folt thnt aho
hnd become incapable of all thought.
She no longer remembered what alio
hud intended to any to him, nor could
ahe divine whnt he would any. If it
wero but over, if the moment would
but como! She felt capable of nothing
but that wish; ber mind seemed to be
running by hor liko a stream, with a
strange velocity which came to nothing. Then ahe woke up suddenly to
feel that tho time had come. The summer fields, all golden with butter-cups,
hud stolen away into tho grny, the
hedge-rows only betrayed themselves
by u vague darkness. Sho could not
seo tho faces, or anything but ghostlike outlines of thoso she mot. The
time hud come when one looks liko
another nnd identity is tnkon away.
Thero wus nobody upon the Grange
mud, She went along us swift as a
shadow, like a ghost, her voil over her
face. The holly-tree stood black like
n pillar of cloud at tho gute, and some
ono stood close by, waiting — not a
creature to seo them fur or near.
They clasped bunds und stood togothor
enveloped by the graynoss, tho confused atmosphere of evening, wliich
seemed to hide thom ovon from each
other.
"Thank Heaven I hnve you at last.
I thought you wero nevor coming,"
Edward snid.
"It wns not dnrk enough till now.
Oh, Edward! that wc should meet liko
thieves, like—"
"Lovers, darling. Tho most iuno-
cout of lovers como together so—especially whon the Fates aro against them j
they aro against us no moro, Hostor.
Take my nnn nud let us go. We have
nothing to wait for. I think I hnvo
thought of everything, Good-by to
the old lifo—the dreary, the vain. My
only love! Come, thero ia nothing to
detain us—"
It was at this moment that the secret
listener—who cnine without any intention of listening, who wanted only to
seo who it wns and what it meant—
losing hor shoo in tho heavy ground of
tho shrubbery, stole iuto thut corner
behind the wall.
"Oh, Edwnrd, wait—there is everything to detain us. Did you not _et
my note' They sny things nro going
wrong with thu Vernon's—thnt tiio
bauk--I cunt tell whnt it it, but you
will understand, Harry said nothing
could be done till you cuine."
"Harry is a foul!" he said, bitterly.
"Why didn't he take lm share of tho
work nud understand matters,? Is it
my fault if it wub all thrown into my
hands '. Hester, you arc my own love,
but you are a fool too! Don't you aee ?
Can't you understand that thia is the
very reason ? But why should I try to
explain at such a moment—or you ask
ino? Come, my thirling! Safety and
happiness and everything we cnu wish
lie beyond yon railway. Let ua get
away."
"I am not going, Edward. Oh, how
could you think it! I never meant to
go."
"Not going!" he laughed, and took
lior hands into his, with an impatience,
howevor, which made him restless,
whicli might hnve made him violent,
"thut is n pretty thing to tell me just
whon you hnve met ino for the purpose.
I know you wnnt to be persuaded.
But come, come; I will persuade you
us much aa you can dosiro when I get
you safe into tho train."
"lt is not persuasion I want. If it
wus right I would go if all tho world
wero against it. Edward, do you know
what it looks like? Itloukslikotreuch-
ery—like deserting your post — like
leading them into danger, theu leaving
them in their ignorance to stumble out
ua they can."
"Well?" he aaid. "Is that all? If
we can get off with that we shall do
very well, Hestor. I shouldn't wonder
if they aaid harder things still."
.'If the bank ahould—come to harm.
I am a Vernon too. I can't bear it
ahould come to harm. If anything was
to happen—"
"If it will abridge this discussion—
which suroly is ill-timed, Heater, to
say tho least—I may admit at onco thnt
it ia likely to come to harm. I don't
know how tilings ure to bo tided over
this timo. The bank's on its last logs.
Wo needn't mako any mystery on tlie
subject.    What's that?"
It was a sound—of intolerable woo,
indignation uud wrnth from behind tho
wall. Catherine was listening, witli
her hands clasped hard to keep herself
up, It was not a cry which would
have betruyed her, but un involuntary
rustle or movement, a gusp, indinhu-
guisliublu from so ninny other utterances of thu night.
"I suppose it wus nothing," ho added. "Hester, como; wo can't stand
hero liko two—thieves, ns you say, to
be found uut by anybody. There's the
villain Marshall, Catherine'!) spy, always on the outlook. Ho tells his
mistress everything. However, that
dues not matter much uow. Ily tomorrow, dear, neither you nor I need
mind whnt' they say. There will bo
plenty aaid—wo must make up our
mind to that. 1 suppose you gavo
your mother a hint—"
"My mother a hint? Edward! how
could I ditto to auy to hor— What
would site think? but oh, thut comas
so long a way after! Tho first thing is,
you cannot go; Edward, you must not
go—a man cannot bo a traitor. It is
just thu one thing. If all was plain
sailing, well; but when things are
going badly— Oil no, no, I will not
hear you say ao. You cannot doaert
your post."
He took hold of her arm in tho intensity of his vexation and rage.
"You aro n fool, he said hoarsely.
"Hester: I lovo you nil llio same, but
you are a fool! Didn't I tell you at first
I waa risking everything. Heavens,
can't you understand! Desert my post.
I havo no post. It will he botter for
them that I should be out of the way.

For a number of years manngcr of the

of Montreal. They say of him that ho
is ono of the very hest workmen over iu
their employ, ami they part with him
with regret, which is u sulliciciit gutttan-
tco of his ability. 1 have spared neither
trouble nor expense to get one of the
ablest men, and I am determined to
make iny business second to none in
British Columbia, Mr. Crake will havo
entire charge of tho Watch department.
Chronometers, Repeaters, tlirono-
grilplis, and nll complicated watches
rated and adjusted. Broken or lost parts
mado equal to new. Any parties having
Watches whioh have been iu tlie hands
of incompetent Watchmakers and can't
he made to go, send them to mc, packed
in a small hox, hy ninil, registered or
otherwise, and they will have my immediate attention; and perfect satisfaction
will ho given.
The manufacturing Jewelry is undor
my personal charge. All kinds of Jewelry made to order and the quality of tiie
goods guaranteed. Diamonds and precious stones set with care. All my
charges are moderate. I have a now and
well-selected stock of WntChCR, Clocks,
Gold, Sliver nnd Rolled Plate Jewelry nnd Plated Ware, all of tho best
quality. New pattorns constantly arriving.
All Watches sold wilt he closely regulated to a few seconds a mouth, thus doing nway with the annoyance of having
an imperfect time-keeper.
