Bribing (he Legislature!
Wo need oiler no apology for pro.
aenting to our renders a full statement of the recent attempt to bribe
certain mcniburs of tlio Ontario
legislature. .The following ia from-
the Toronto Globe of the 18th ult.:
Mr. Mowot roso in his seat, and
in a few Btudiously culm, and oven
for him deliberate words, stated tlmt
he had something of tlio most startling character to toll the house. Thore
had, ho said, been a conspiracy to
purchase votes curried on in that
building. Tho speaker, ho understood, had received certain letters
which ho asked should now ho laid
before the house. Thon arose Mr.
Speaker, Ho produced two largo
envelopes addressed to himself. Ono
of these ho opened, lt was from
Mr. McKim, member for N. Wellington. It was very short. It
stated that. Mr, McKim had been
approached by tho notorious J; A.
Wilkinson, ono of the chief bribers
I . of the Dominion bribery brigade,
and had been pnid no less a sum
than §1,000 to influence his vote,
and this money in ten $100 bills
Mr, McKim enclosed to tho speaker.
The second letter woa ono to a similar effect from Mr. Balfour, of
South Essex, who had received $800
from ono Kirkland for a similar
purpose. Tlio offeot upon the house
of this disclosure was indescribable.
A pin could have beon hoard to drop
as the speaker read tlio letters in a
clear, dignified tone, and slowly
counted out
EIGHTEEN HUNDRED DOLLARS
beforo the people. Attention was
strained to tlie utmost when Mr.
Morris arose and impressed upon
the speaker the importance of the
latter's keeping each letter with its
enclosures nud envelopes separate
from tha others. Afterwards Mr.
Morris und his leader mora clearly
showed that they intended to do all
in their power to bring.odium, not
upon the criminals, but upon tiie
patriotic gentlemen by whose self-
sacrifico the criminals were brought
to justice. As soon us tho speaker
had read the letters, Mr. Mowiifc
again rose, aud read out a statement
of the whole history of the case,
The attempts to bribe bis supporters
had commenced ut the beginning of
the session,
THK IMS 11 SONS ISIPD10ATED
are Christopher W, Bunting, chief
editor of the Mail; Edward Meek
a barrister, who has au oilice in tlie
Mail building; J. A. Wilkinson, the
notorious bribery agent of tho Dominion government; and one Kirkland 'and one Lynch, iho latter
American citizens, Tlio attorney-
general related how Mr. Balfour,
Mr. McKim, and Dowling, of South
Renfrew, had been nppro.tched witli
offers of money mid Dominion oillces;
how Mr. Bunting hud assured tho
members that he was authorized by
Sir John Macdonald to oiler them
the offices, and how the members
took tho information at once to the
government; that under the advice
of the govornmont, Messrs. Bitlfont-
and McKim
PliBTENDED TO MSTEN
to tho voico of the tempter, (Oid'how
ab length the money had been actually paid to them. All these things
wore embodied in n resolution referring the matter to the Committee on
Privileges and Elections with instructions to investigate the same.
Mr. Mowat udded a fow plain, unvarnished words tO this narrative,
expressing a hope lhat every member
of the Houso wonld insist in probing tho charges to the bottom, lie
was followed by Messrs. Meredith
and Morris, who, after expressing
tho utmost horror that such a thing
could happen, turned upon Messrs,
Balfour and McKim and denounced
them
IS  THE  MOST VIMJLKNT  TKltMS.
How ■ much better it would havo
beon, they said, if tho persons approached had spurned tho offers instead of appearing to entertain them .'
And, indeed, it was evident to the
wholo assemblage that if such a policy had been followed it would have
beon much bettor—for the criminals,
for there would have been no evidence against them; and the fact
that there was evidence seemed to
weigh heavily upon the opposition
leaders. Mr. Morns a fow minutes
later caught it severely from Mr.
McKim, who urose and iu u voice
quivering with indignation asked
how ho dared to inaiilfxliim in thut
manner. He, Mr. McKim, apprehended that, when he was approached with offers of money by persons
to whom liis financial Situation was
known, it was'for hiin to brindig-
nant and for him to settle how the
insult should be avenged. After
that, Mr. Fraser let off a fow stinging words of condemnation against
the
RITISH
MBIAN.

hatched under tho eaves of tho Mail
building," It wus reserved for Mr.
Clarke, of West Toronto, alone
among tho Opposition members, to
follow tho contemptible course of his
leaders, He even went tho length
of insinuating that Mr. Mowat had
hired J-ho bribers and furnished them
with money with which to corrupt
his own followers, and that Mr,
Mowat had had the money paid thnt
day iu order by the exposure to influence the East Grey'election. To
thn credit of tho other Opposition
speakers, Messrs, Wood, Broiler,
Gray, and Kerns, bo it said that not
a word did they utter
jjxuitrr or hon cut ooNDHMSA'^st-^.
ot the bribery whichtheir lenders attempted to oxeiiso by ploaditig that
tho poor, innucont Bunting, Wilkinson, Meek, Kirkland, and Lynch had
been lod into trouble against tlieir better judgment hy the hasp arts of the
wicked GvitB. Mr. Graham detailed
the approaches mado to himsolf, and
how he declined to vote against the
Government; he waa told ho would bo
remunerated if ho would evon speak
against tho Government without voting. Sir. CiHCiiduu added furthor to
tlio weight of tlio damning evidence
against the conspiracy by tleaoribiflg
tho oilers mado to himself, ono of
wliich was tho same registrurship of
Regina that was offered to several
other member*. Mr. Murray heaped
up tho ovidonco against tlio conspirators and their associates, by tolling of
advances which hud boon mado to hi
whilo on a visit to Ottawa. Mr. Young
joined tho previous spankers in thanking the members wlm-had unonrthsd
the cmispimcy and brought home tho
evidence of guilt to the conspirators.
If corruption of this kind was to hu
carried on, there would, ho said, iu
ten yoars be no Dominion nf Canada.
When tho Attorney-Geiloral moved
Iho adjournment of tho House till
threo to-day tho motion was carric'tt in
silence winch contrasted greatly with
tho usual questions Halted of tho Government respecting business to come
up tm future days.- Not a few monikers retired nt once," but many remained and gathered in knots of
EAGEP. TAXKHItS   ANO LI8TBNEHS,
Mr. Hudson and another member of
tho Opposition ci-oasod tho floor and
warmly congratulated Mr. Balfour ou
the part ho Imd tnkeu in exposing tho
scandalous conspiracy, and udded that
they would have cltmo precisely the
sumo thing if lhey liad beoii similarly
approached. Till long after midnight
thu oue subject of discussion at tlio
buildings was tlto'-pri'donnei! of the conspiracy and the bribes offered. Lynch,
onu of tho parties who practised hii
posed to ba working under an alias'.
Ilo did not visit the Houso, but plied
the members nt tho hotels. Kirkland,
a western lawyer, who had taken to
lumbering, was an intimate of J. A.
Wilkinson, nnd the two worked togothor throughout the negotiations,
Kirklaud offered largo sums to several
members if they would voto against
the Govornmont. Wilkinson appeared
to be mixed up in almost every offer,
and ho and Mr, Bimtingi who appeared
according to all llio statements made
to bo tlm chief ageut in tho dirty
work, posed us tlio bearer of special
otters from tho Dominion Government.
Tho efforts mado at buying up mom-
bora wore moat persistent. Thoy woro
commenced early .iu the Boasitm, and
wero earned on intermittently. Then
camo tho
them and avoid making a'scone, und
ho was conducted to No; 2 Police Station on AgnoB street. His spirits wero
sustained on the journey down by tho
hopo of securing bail, aud thus avoiding llio indignity of passing a night in
durance vile. Such hopes, howover,
wero vain. No bail was taken, and
Mr. Kirkland passed the night at No.
2 -Station. Immediately upon the arrest of Mr. Kirkland tho telephones iii
the Parliament Buildings wero plugged,
to prevent cominuuication being made
through this medium with any of that
gentleman's confederates, and Detec-
tivo Murray sot off to assist Detective
Wyun in arresting Mr, Wilkinson,
Ho was found in liis room. No. !),
Walker House, and evinced groat surprise when two detectives presented
themselves at his door and informed
him that thoy wished him to accompany
thom. Ho demanded tho reason, and
in rcpl^wiis shown the warrant to arrest him on tho ground of his boing
implicated in tho conspiracy. He'
turned pale, nnd said nervously: —
"It is falso; I know nothing of tho
matter. I don't understand the menu
ing of it at all."
A word of advice from tho detectives,
liowo'vor. showed him tho advisability
of acceding quietly to their request for
hia company; and he also went with
thom tn No. 2 Police Station, whoro
he spout thu night.

Unpalatable Truth.
A gentleman sends from Brandon
to tho Toronto lissome statements
respecting the climate and condition
of the north-went territories which,
we are afraid, will be most unpalatable  to the peoplo of that country.
This correspondent admits candidly
that  Manitoba and the north-west
aro unmistakably cold in winter, an
admission which very few inhabitants of that  region will publicly
concede.    "Tbis to the fourth win-
tor in thia country," lie says, "that
I havo seen a Fahrenheit thermometer register 57 degrees, whicli is
within. 13   degrees of the coldest
weather  ever experienced by orotic
navigators,"   "But," he adds, "the
typical Manitoban will not give the
climate away!"   Wo have long suspected that the reports from that
province   should be  taken  witli a
good deal of allowance.   There has
beeu no dispute about the temperature.    The thermometers have settled  that.     But we are constantly
asked to believe that one can enjoy
life nnd look pleased when even the
mercury  is frozen.     In a dry climate every one knows that cold is
not so  severely felt as where tbe
atmosphere is full of moisture.   Ten
degrees   above  zero  at  this  city
would probably equal zero nt Winnipeg.     .But when the thermometer
goes down to 57 nil joking must be
laid aside. The Brandon correspondent snys that all rhetorical dcsciip
tions of Manitoba winter temperatures are deceptive, and ho thinks it
is    time    those   misrepresentations
should  he discontinued,   "It is bettor that  the   intending immigrant
should  bo previously informed that
this country in winter is intensely
cold, tlint  the mercury goes clown
at odd times to fifty-seven degrees,
thut  winter begins in earnest about
tbe tenth of November, nnd lusts,
witli only a slight break, until the
first of April; that there nro three,
months   in   mid-winter when it is
hardly fit for man or beast to remain
exposed;   that  winters   known ns
blizzard ly nre very severe, and render traveling and all out-door work
next to impossible.    The prairies
are bare;  there is little or no shelter, aud during the severe months
traveling is not only nearly impossible, but it is very dangerous.   It
would  be  hetter to instruct the intending  immigrant as to the facts,
so that noil'" but the hardy nnd venturesome  may come.   It is a paradise for the Scandinavian and the
hardy races of   the fur north, but
the Anglo-Saxon, and even the Canadian  will  find it too fur north for
permanent occupation."   These nro
brave words for a Manitoban.  They
•   may be strictly true, however, and
it is certainly better that the truth
should be known.   The same correspondent gives a somewhat discouraging report of political matters.
He  says   tho legislature has been
filled by men of no position—political   adventurers—whose  eyes  are
always directed to the advancement
of their own personal ends.   Municipal   organizations are no better.
Tho  municipal machinery in many
instances seems to be unworkable,
and the results generally are unsat
isfuctory.    It must be remembered
that Manitoba is a very young country, nnd the machinery is still rough;
but time works wonders.     Time,
however, will not materially niter
the severity of the climate, which,
after   alt,   is   the great drawback
to Manitoba,     And it ia just hore
that British Columbia has the advantage.       We believe the soil of
Manitoba is quite as rich as ours,
and   that it is nearly as productive.
Besides, good land beyond the Bocky
Mountains is almost without limit,
while in this province it is very
much circumscribed.    But British
Columbia   leads the   Dominion in
climate.     While the eastern provinces and  Manitoba are shivering
under snow, for more than a month
past  we have been basking in almost perpetual sinshine, with mare
delightful  weather than Ontario enjoys in May. When these conditions
become  moro generally understood
British  Columbia will attract from
Manitoba and the east thousands of
people who even now wish to escape
from thai region of rigorous winters.   This coast will become a great
winter resort, and ns our summers
are no less charming, it will become
a permanent resort for those who
wish to enjoy an equable and magnificent climate.
Prince Leopold.
Prince Leopold George Duncan
Albert, Duke of Albany, and youngest son of Queen Victoria, died suddenly at Cannes, in France, lust
Friday night. Prince Leopold never
had a robust constitution, but his
death was nevertheless wholly unexpected, 'and lius plunged the royal
family into the deepest grief and
mourning. He was very much
beloved by all who knew him. " His
delicate health led him to the pur
suit of peaceful occupations und his
simple habits and tastes endoared
him greatly to the people of England.
He wus born on the 7th of April,
1853, and on the 27tli of April,
1882, he was married to the Princess Helen of Wuldeck, This is
tho second death iu the fumily of
tho queen. In 1878 Princess Alice
died, and the queen has scarcely recovered from the shock to this day,
She has seven children still surviving, but the loss of her youngest
boy will undoubtedly bring to her
motherly heart n profound sorrow
tn which she will have the sympathy
of tho British Empire.
The Settlement BUI.
Notwithstanding the predictions
of the lot-al opposition organ, the
settlement bill has passed the house
of commons by an overwhelming
majority. When Sir Charles Tup*
pcr's resolutions respecting this bill
were accepted by the house,' The
Columbian asserted that the success
of the bell itself was assured. The
event has fully justified that assertion. Now let us look at the effect
of the ratification of this agreement.
In the firat place it disposes of tlie
serious disputes between the provincial and federal governments which
have so long interfered with the
progress of this province. We are
such a small communis that our
policy should be one of peace. We
are not strong enough to fight the
Dominion, and we do not oven hold
the balance of power in tbe house of
commons. The dry-dock* hus been
tuken off our hands forever. The
resources of this province have for
years been squandered on this foolish enterprise, and our most important industries have grievously suffered. The dry-dock is now the
property of the federal government.
Wo shall receive every dollar that
has been expended ou it, and the
federal government ure hound by
statute to complete und operate it
as a federal work, British Columbia will receive -all the advantages
of the dock, without incurring any
risks whatever. The opening up of
the public lands in the railway belt
is assured. For some months the
land business hus been receiving the
attention of the Dominion agent.
Books are being prepared showing
what lands in the railway belt have
already been taken up, und what
lands ure available for settlement.
As soon as these books have been
completed these lands-will be formally thrown open to settlement on
such conditions as to remove nil existing doubts about titles. Lastly,
the island railway will be built.
In our opinion this is the least important item in the settlement bill.
It has always been a puzzle to people on the mainland why Victoria
should be so wonderfully anxious for
the construction of this railway.
If there was any hopo of its becoming a part of the great transcontinental line, this anxiety would be
explained. But this is most improbable. The island railway will
be the property of a syndicate who
havo no interests in common with
those of the C. P. R. Indeed tho
principal men who compose thnt
syndicate are largely interested in n
competing road, and it is very unlikely that they will in any way amalgamate with onr railway. The ratification of the settlement bill confines tho interests of the 0. P. R.
syndicate wholly to the mainland.
They will not own either u foot of
land or u foot of railway on Vancouver Island, and it will bo directly
to their interest to bring nil thu
commerce of tho provinco to the
Fraser River and Burrard Inlet.
The settlement bill adds 25 percent,
to tho value of property about the
railway termini on the river and the
inlet. But tho people of Victoria
demanded the island railway, and
if the golden vision turns to ashes
in their hands they must remember
that the result is of their own seeking. The mainland has abundant
reason to rejoice ut the settlement
of the settlement bill, and if Victoria is satisfied wo nre well content.

Why Should Not Woman Have
the Franchise?
The whole human race is groaning under tlie burden of sin; sin cruel, raging,
ruining, soul-destroyiug; and this dreadful calamity the result of violated holy
law I Shi thus enthroned in tho human
wilt, the executive power of tho soul,
reigns and rules there as a demon tyrant.
It has changed human beings into beasts
iu habits, and into brutes iu cruelty.
Honco wo have theft, lust, profanity,
falsehood, drunkenness and murder,
with an innumerable host of other lawless acts. But drunkenness alone is a
sin from which results a plentiful harvest
of terrible crimes and awful denths.
According to the present constitution of
tilings, whnt could arrest the fearful carnage of sin and ruin of immortal souls?
So far as we can conceive, it could best
bo done through woman—through the
God^nan being born of tho virgin and
cradlal in a manger. I stated in a for-
mor article that woman was created organically superior to man, sho being remade, and rendered capable, as a pure
virgin, of maternally introducing into
this world the most perfect man that
ever did or ever will adorn onr race;
perfect in form, beautiful in symmetry,
sinless in morals, glorious iu holiness,
God enrolled lu a garment of human
flesh, subject to its laws physiologically,
mentally, morally aud spiritually, for
tho express purposo of revealing tho principles and manifesting the chnractcr of
the Eternal God to fallen human nature,
and thin in the most wonderful initnnor
ainl In perfect harmony with his froo
agency, to win back, if possiblo, the rebellious will of man to loyalty, holiness,
happiness and eternal felicity. Tho
seed of tho woman was indeed tho "mysterious mortal existence of Deity on
earth1'—•'man's sinless representative to
God"—and "Emmanuel, God with us.*
By a divine miracle woman waa made
the medium of this wonderful personage
Into our world. A miracle stupendous
in character, merciful in design, and
eternal En results, and. constituting a
foundation sufficiently massive to sustain
the mighty fabric of Christianity to the
end ol time. Tho divine primal origin
of the human nature of Christ may properly ho regarded ns the great central
argument in support of the Christian
system; and every other, whether drawn
from nature or revelation, points aa unerringly to it as the needle to the pole,
and derives its power and glory aliko
from it.
As the all-wise Creator of our nine
has crowned woman with such exalted
dignity and glory in choosing her to ho
his co-worker and a medium through
which nll the saving spiritual agencies,
human and divine, necessary for man's
redemption should be set in motion, why
should feoblo, helpless, sinful, rebellious
man prohibit her from taking nn active
ameliorative part ou the great social ami
moral battle-field of humanity 1
Saying nothing of the thousands of human beings that daily pass into eternity
unprepared, we know thnt intoxicating
drinks daily hurl over 1 ho precipice of
time into eternity 104 victims, enrobed
in 'guilt nnd agonized by despair. At
this terrible Bight woman stands aghast,
and earnestly asks that sho may havo
a human legal, ns she has a moral aud
divine, right to use her influence in ar
resting JJiis awful curse ravaging hu-. agents here who will hire men, when
manity in time and torturing it in eternity. This idea of itself is truly appalling without adding thereto the misery
and wretchedness of tho bereaved. Cun
woman so disrobe herself of humanity by
asking less ? Can she ignore her accountability by not perseveringly pressing her
claim to an equal right to lessen crime
and alleviate suffering ? Cau she disregard her responsibility to nid iu snatching the cup of death oxtended by the
hand of avarice to deluded humanity 1
Wiiero, indeed, is the man so ignoble,
so besotted, so inhuman, and so morally
benighted, so conscience-scared, as to
deny her the privilege bf obeying the iu*
wrought instincts of hor nature, and the
laws so deeply engraved on her conscience by the Creator of all things. Nay,
more, who will not encircle nor brow
with a wreath of honor for seeking to
exemplify her loyalty to humanity and
to God? Shall tho great God of the human race lovingly invito her aid and
guilty man indignantly spurn tiio offer
of her services nnd treat her as a tjraitor
to hor race ? O, no; stand not between
her and her Creator; bid her welcome;
her sympathy and nid aro needed.
Again, lot mo say that it is through
woman the most devoted, the most zealous, tho most persevering, and the most
useful agonts have been introduced upon
the great moral stage of human activity
and consecrated us offerings on tbo divine altar, by high moral and religious
training, humble prayer, victorious faith,
and inspiring lovo. Deprive tho world
of nil the uplifting influence emanating
directly and indirectly from pure and
noble-minded woman, and a pall of dense
moral and spiritual darkness will envelope
and crush humanity.
Without woman'in the sense above ox
plained, it is not likely that tho angel:
would over have desired to look into the
grand scheme of redeeming love—a
scheme so vast, so profound, so comprehensive, so mysterious, and so Godlike;
that humanity could evor have felt any
interest with respect to heaven and its
holy inhabitants; thnt tho myriads of
ransomed spirits that now throng that
holy place with Abraham, Isaac und
Jacob could over have been there; that
the joys thnt swell, the hearts of the inhabitants of that celcstinl abode could
ever have existed; that the songs of the
redeemed that reverberate through tbe
temple of the New Jerusalem above
could over have boen sung. The joys of
heaven are not only rendered possiblo to
regenerated human spirits, but they are
magnified, intensified and glorified. All
this comes to the race through woman,
If sin has left to us a spark of true humanity, an atom of gratitude, we should
hail with shouts of enthusiastic joy her
desire to diminish the dire outgo under
whicli ghastly humanity bleeds, groans
and dies amid the fearful wailing* of
despair.
My object iu pointing theso thoughts
on the right of woman to the franchise is
to nid iu drawing attention to the important part sho is destined by her Creator to play in the great Bocial ami moral
conflict of tho raee, and iu lending tho
opposite sex to view the subject in the
light of the diviuo moral constitution
that the human .race as with nn adamantine chain to the Infinite Creator.'

tho British minister at Washington,
requesting him to bring tho matter before the United States authorities.
Tho liouteiiant governor of British

Some settlors frjin the oastern sec-

and arrange transport. No arrangements have as yet been made for
travelling rates with tho roads hero,
but probably the employers will be
able to do so. Work will be commenced at the summit of the Kockies
at Kicking Horse Puss. The Canadian
Pacific, has finished 976 miles west of
Winnipeg, leaving 300 miles to bo-
finished to meet the work of 200 miles
on the west end from
PORT  MOODY TO KAMLOOPS
Now being constructed by tho Canadian government. This 200 miles will
bo done beforo the mountain division
work ia completed, which latter will
require time, probably till the summer
of 1880. The Canadian Pacifio has
been accumulating coal on Lake Superior, but now find thoy can utilize
the coal on thoir own lino thus saving
expense of transport. The government has given the contractors two
years in which to finish their 200 miles
and tho latter aro making their plans
accordingly.

of Welland canal. The boats are to
be run botween Owen Sound or Collingwood and Port Arthur. The Canadian Pacific has now a continuous routo
from Montreal, taking in by purchase
tho Credit Valley and the Ontario and
Quebec, tho Toronto, Grey and Bruco
roads, and running through to Toronto
and Ottawa. It makes a competing
line to the Grand Trunk railway.
ON TIIK WESTERN DIVISION
Regular trains will run as far as Calgary. Work will bB continued in the

The Hand or Death,
PRINCE LEOPOLD DIES IK A FIT,
London; March 28,—Prince Leopold, fourth and youngest son of Queen
Victoria, died suddonly to-day nt
Camiea, France. Tho surprise at the
sudden death of tho Duke of Albany
is greatly heightened by the fact that
lie attended a bacholor's ball at Nico
last Tuesday night lookipg in fine
health. A dispatch from the Duchess
states tliat tho Duko of Albany's death
is due to the effects of a fall last evening at the Circle Maiitique.
London, March 28.—The Queen received the news of the Duke of Albany's death this p.m. Sho waa profoundly affected. The Prince died in
a tit. She was on the point of storting
for Darmstadt to attend the .wedding
of her niece, Princess Victoria of Hesse.
The Princo of Wales wns visiting tho
Earl of Sefton and received tho nows
on Aintree race-course. . He returned
at once to London. Horses were enter;
ed for the races, but the owners refused
to run them. Marlborough Houso is
besieged with people calling to ox press
their condolence. Sir Henry W. Pon-
aonby, private secretary to her Majesty,
telegraphs from Windsor to tho London bureau of tho associated press that
tho Queen is naturally very deeply distressed at the terrible news; but has
borne it as well as could be expeoted.
Majov-General Sir John Cowell, master of tho Queen's household, proceeds
at once to Cannes to fetch the Duke
of Albany's remains to England. The
curfew bell at Windsor Castle was
tolled at half-past seven this evening,
Blinds at Buckingham Palaco are
drawn. The Duke of Albany went to
Cannes only a few days ago for his
health. Nothing serious was anticipated. He was looking fairly and had
been taking a part in tho.festivities of
the palace, but ho had a severe chill
whicli may havo been the prccusor of
the fatal lit. Neither the Queen nor
Princess Beatrice will attend the wedding of the Princess Victoria of Hesso.
Gladstone is much affected by tho
duke's death.
London, March 28. — When tho
Queen first heard tho news of tlie
Duke's deatli she wns seized with a

distance which to-day separates the
Atlantic and Pacific porta, of British
America by a distance but little less

Tehuantepec is the most northern
of the several isthmuses which, with

geographical advantages over the latter
one.
The heaviest gradient on the Atlantic side docs not exceed 42 ft, per
mile, while that on the Pacific is only
52 ft. for about eight miles, the remainder of tho route will have no
grades exceeding 20 ft. per mile. No
exceptionally heavy work will be encountered either in cuts or embankments, and the entire road will be

Canadian Statesmen.
A correspondent of tbo New York
Sun, who has been visiting Ottawa,
gives the following description of tho
present leaders of the two great parties
in the Canadian houso of commonB,'
Sir John A. Macdonald, the real
ruler of Canada, with but a short interruption, for twenty-five years, is the
greatest man British North America
has produced. Knight Commander of
tho Provincial Order of St. Michael
and St. Goorge, Knight Commander of
tho Bath, member of the Imperial
Privy Council, a distinction enjoyed
hy no other man iu Canada. For forty
years he has been in Parliament, ond
during all that time Canada has noted
his remarkable administrative ability.
His services on intercolonial commissions, as, for instance, on the one regarding tbe Alabama claims, have
given the English also chances to admire his genius. He is about seventy
years old, and looks like William
Davidge of Daley's Fifth Avenue
Theatre company. His face is big
featured and rough hewn. He is democratic, easy going, good natured, and
unaffected. Ho lolls about in his chair,
which is liko all the other chairs, with
his knees up against the edge of liis
desk or his limber legs twisted under
the seat, and twists this way aud that,
to listen to the speakers iu his party,
to pass an approving word to them, or
to exchange glances or witticisms with
the men around him. He is a politican
of the smartest sort.
Mr. Blake, tho opposition leader,
looks liko Senator Bayard, but there
is in his face nn indefinable touch that
betrays his Irish origin, He is,smooth
shaven and wears black, and, if he had
a choker, might easily pass for a priest;
but he prefers to put on a big slouch
hat and to wear clothes that don't fit
him, so that Grip, the Canadian imitation of our Puck; has made a hit by
always pourtraying him as a farmer.
Ho is considered tho best orator in the
House. His Irish softens and beautifies his pronunciation, gives him ready
wit and a smooth flow of language; but
he is hotter than a good talker. He
has a broad and logical mind, h.is a
lawyer's training, is predisposed to
figures nud accounts, and is absolutely
and mathematically accurate. It is
his business to want to know, and he
hns a great capacity for disturbing
complacent and shiftless officeholders,
exposing public extravagance, if any
tliore be, and demanding official figures
that may be hidden in sly, Ministerial
poke-hoIeB. He does not compare with
Sir John as a politician. When one
of his followers is speaking he is as
likely as not to bury his head in his
arms on his desk, or to read a newspaper, or go out and take a walk. The
Premier will never be caught making
sueh mistakes.

It will relieve the poor little sufferer immediately. Depend upon it, mothers,

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
"You will be fond of mo, will you
not, Nellie, and try and lovo mo for
liis sake?" she said, in a low, sweet
voice that I scarcely recognized ns
Eleanor's. "I know I am not worthy
of liim; Marion says bo; but you will
all try and make mc so, will yeu not?"
„ How could I stool myself against
such soft humility, especially as Dudley was standing by, looking at her
with thoso lover's eyes? so I kissed
her again, and answered—
"Only make him happy, dour Eleanor, and oven you cannot ask from us
more gratitude aud love than wo shall
willingly bestow." And then I led
her in; but hi! the timo I was thinking to myself, how tlifferont it would
have been if it had been Marion I
was welcoming homo.
It seemed to me as if tea-time, and
tho hour nfter it, would never pass;
nnd oven in tho midst of Dudley's
asking me a question, I found myself
wondering if this were not somo miserable dream, from which I should presently nwaku; nothing scorned real to
me, not even Eleanor, sitting ou the
cushion at my feet, with her warm
hand holding fust to mine.
And yet to Dudloy's cyos alio must
hnvo appeared a miracle of loveliness,
sitting thero with changing color and
downcast eyes, her loose golden curls
streaming over her round white arm,
as shu half-leant against me, and talked
in her low musical voico, with its soft
foreign intonation.
Ah, no wonder lie should admire
her! and oven to me she seemed
changed, subdued, transform ed, even,
by the halo of his love, shining with
n borrowed glory, till I found myself
addressing hor with reverence, and a
dim hope roso within my heart that
porhaps, after all, sho might not prove
unworthy, and theso hauuting terrors
of mine might vanish in the sunlight,
thawed by an irresistible influence.
If I had only not seen Marion—if I
could but trust her!
It was Dudley who at last freed me
from this purgatory of doubt and pain,
by proposing u stroll.
"It is such u fair, sweet evening,
Eleanor," he '.vhispered, "and there
will bo a harvest moon to-night to
silver the corn-fields, and light us
the   lanes;    come,   t-enorc,
among
come."
"If it be not unkind to leavo Nellie," she returned, looking shyly up in
his face; "it seems so lonely to desert
her—sho is but Iriato and quiet tonight, poor little white roso!"
I touched her hair caressingly.
"Do not think of me, Eleanor, for
I shall go across and seo Marion; slie
also is sitting alone, nnd will be glad
to talk with me, I dare say; so make
hnste and put on your hat beforo tliis
glorious sunset is over.''
Thus urged, Eleanor did uot linger,
and in a few minutes I waa standing
at my window watching them as they
wandered slowly down tlio lane; he
with his bent head, and ahe looking
up at hiin with her two hand-, clasped
on his arm.
Ah, the old, old story, lirst told iu
Eden, where tho angels listened to tho
first pure talo of love—wonderful old
story—ever now, and never wearying,
to be repeated and multiplied a thousandfold, till the earth be destroyed,
nud time shall bo no move, until, with
the new hoavens and-the new earth,
shall begin un eternity of happiness,
whoso very essence and embodiment
is love.
Through the corn-fields, with their
fow scant sheaves of grain, and towards tlie brightening sunset, thoy
wandered, those two happy lovers;
whilo I crept wearily down the sloping
fields, aud through the hazel copse, till
the green verandas of the Fernery
came in sight.
Katie was sowing iu tho porch us I
passed and did not see mo; but Bruce,
working at the flower-Borders down by
the gate, culled to me to stop, and
stood up in the garden-path with his
hands full of llower-pots, and his faco
ruddy with exercise.
''Whither away so quiek, Nellie,
that you can't stay to give a neighborly
greeting? I suppose you are bound tithe Priory; this comes of those strong
young lady friendships, which puts
brother5* in tho background, Look, I
havo taken slips of all iny geraniums,
and a capital lot, I lmvo mado of them;
likely young plant*, ain't they? we'll
have the garden next Juue full of
them, with a border of calceolaria, and I
nemophila;—hullo, what arc you up
to? you've knocked over two of tin-
pots by swinging back thn gate, and
the mold is all over the fresh-rolled
gravel."
"I am very sorry," I returned, in a
subdued voice.   Bruco looked at me.
"Why, what's the matter, little woman? you don't look well; is thore
-anything up at the house?"
"Oh, Bruce," I cried, moved ton
sudden confidence by the kindness of
his tone; "I feel ill, and broken-1
hearted—oh, Bruce, Dudley is going
to marry Eleanor -Vivian."
"Eleanor? — you mean Marion!—
well, that's no surprise to me, or to
you either, I should think, who have
been maneuvering all this time to
bring it about; what did you have her
so much for, if you did not want it?
of course you know what these things
lead to in tho end!"
"Oh, don't mistake me," I returned;
"don't you see how miserable I am—-
if it were but Marion, but it is not;
it is Eleanor he has brought to tne today, and givon mo us a sister. Bruce,
what chance of happiness is therefor
Dudley, if he have Eleanor Vivian for
his wife?"
Bruce turned palo, and daAicd
down his hand on the littlo gate with
such violence that Katie camo running
out quite frightened at the noise.
"What is it, dear,—oh, there's Nellie; why, whatever is the matter with
. you two?"
"Mntteri" said Bruce, turning round
savagely upon her, "there's matter
enough, I think, when Dudloy, whom
every one has been lauding to tho
skies all his life, has turned out nothing but a poor fool after all, to pass by
a woman like Marion Vivian, who has
beauty, character, and everything else,
and tako up with lhat fatUlia.it piece
of quicksilver, Eleanor, who would
only mako a wife for a gipsy, or a
traveling artist—\vhy, Uio man's mad!"
"Do you. mean that Dudley hns dono
that?" asked Kntio, looking sorrowfully at tne.
"Yes, it is all over; Eleanor and lie
are engaged."
"Oh, Bruce!" nud sho laid her hand
against hor husband's shoulder, the
tears Btarting to her oycB; "then it is
indeed all over with liim, for trouble
and he will never bo apart."
"Don't say that, Katie!'1 cried poor
Bruce, who seemed nt this moment as
dejected hs I was. "Dudley ia not
like any one olse, nnd perhaps he will
know how to manage hor, and mold
her to his ways; if only sho really
lovo him, Nellie, can wo be sure of
that?".
"As far as I cau judge, I beliovo
she does, and has loved him from the
first."
"Well, woll," he groaned, "we must
hope for the best; ovory man must
make Iub owu life or mar it, and ho
has entered into thia" with Iub eyes
open, mid a better choice beforo him.
But who would have thought it of our
sago prudent brother, that ho Bhould
go and entangle himself with this wild
girl, whilo 1, the scapegrace of the
family, contented myself with my
Kitty's plain faco!"
My Kitty looked anything but plain
this moment, with that frank sweet
blush, as she laughingly answered—
"Yet thero was a time, husband
mine, when ynu objected to the freckles, and thought a dairy-maid would
have looked more trim in a home-spun
petticoat and village-cobbled boots."
And Katie tapped the gate witli her
protty foot,now looaing comely enough
with its smart kid boot; for Katie had
turned coquette for her husband's sake,
and wore silken attire of glossy sheen,
made by her owu skillful hands into
tho newest fashion.
"Thou art fair enough now, in my
eyes, lassie," ho answered tendotly,
"though I grumbled onco in my coxcomb days; but here is Nell looking
ready to drop with fatigue, and wo
have never so much ns asked hov to
come in and rest; our mother is down
by tho willow tree, let us join her,
whilo Kitty gets you some wine."
But I excused myself, for I was
longing to go on to tho Priory, and
get over my talk with Marion; bo
Katie bade ino a wistful good-night,
while Bruce put on bis straw hat and
walked up the avenue with mo, and
all the way the poor fellow kopt wondering and sorrowing out of his great
soft heart, what marvellous blindness
had beset his brother, that he should
miss the "Pearl of the Priory."
"But .don't you fret about it, Nollie," lie reiterated, as wo parted lit tlm
open halt-door; "you have nothing to
reproach yourself with, for yuu havo
been a good little sister to hint all liis
life; but not even a guardian angel can
preserve a man whon ho is in love
with the wrong porson, and perhaps,
after all, she may turn out hotter than
we expect."
So saying he turned on his heel,
and I went iu, looking into tho different rooms aa I passed, to see if Marion
was thero.
Babotte, meeting me on tho stairs a
minute later, told mo that her mistress
waB indisposed, and had one of her
bad sick-headaches, and was lying on
her couch, trying to sleep, and would
have no one disturb hor. I hesitated
on hearing this, and let Babetto pass

"I would watt," I-snid, "and■listen
dt liev door, and if I heard her moving, would go in."
She never minded nio at any time,
and loved to have nio tend upon her in
pain; but even as I spoko a misgiving
seized me, though I strove to banish
it by telling myself that these head-
nclics were nothing new, as they frequently recurred at interval^ prostrating her for tlio time being by their
violence and intensity; but still,—no,
I. would not conjecture so idly.
I went up boldly, and turned the
handle of the door. It was locked;
paused and listened—there was no
sound except the twittering <;f the
birds through the open window, so I
crept to tho dressing-room door, wliich
stood half way ajar, and through the
bath-room, which communicated with
her sleoping-oharaber, and entered.
Softly as I moved over the thiol; carpet, I was heard, and Marion ruse
from the foot of the bod, wliere she
had beon half sitting, half-lying, and
confronted mc,
Ah mu For my forfaotling heart! Her
eyes were swollen with weeping, and
ber forehead dark and contracted with
pain, while her hair wna half pushed
back by feverish hands, which seamed
to burn nio us 1 touched them.
"Marion!"
The febrile spot "lowed on her white
cheeks, and she smiled .(it mc, such a
smile o! anguish.
"Don't look so fearful, Nellie, 1
have only ouo of my old attacks. Ua-
bette 'has been ministering to ino, but
for once her leech's skill has failed."
I made answer with sorrowful
sternness —
"This will do for the world, Marion,
but hardly for mo your friend; do you
think yon can deceive me?"
Sho stretched out hor hands to me
for answer, in a pitiful, helpless sort
of way, and then fell on my breast in
an agony of weeping. Ah ine! for her
broken heart! fur tho sacrifice of the
noblest woman my eyes had over scon.
Many a long day has passed sinco
then, but the memory of that bitter
hour ia yet fresh in my mind, of the
hour when wo two wept together in
that half-darkened room, aud she laid
her poor head on my bosom, Marion,
my friend.
"Heaven in its mercy help yuu,
dearest, for vain is tlie holp of mnn,"
and alto answered in a voice broken by
sobs—
"Oh, Nellie, I would have died to
win onu look of love from Him, for the
sake of the sweetest soul and the
gentlest spirit that ever breathed on
earth!"
Oh Dudley, Dudley, wandering in
lhe sunset, with your golden-haired
id«l, look upon this heart-wreck and
pause.
"I know you woll, Marion, that
you are brave, ami proud, and tender
alike; ynu are not of those who lovo
unsought; toll me how this has happened?"
Sho rested her burning forehead
against iny hand.
"Where tho wrong and the mistake
is, I cannot toll- and Heaven forbid
that 1 should reproach him who cannot
but, ho noblo and true; but as surely
as that sky bends over us yonder, so
surely did 1 believe it waa I ho lovod."
1 thought so, too; oh, poor misguided women, what could we do now?
"Never, never," sho continued,
vehemently, "did I mistrust in my inmost heart tho evidence of his choice;
and calmly as one looks on a sunny
vineyard, T abandoned myself to tlio
BwnetneSB of tho thought, that!—and
I alone—was beloved; alas, my friend,
havo pity -upon mo, if you will, for
when ho told mo tliis afternoon that
Eleanor was to bo his wife, I could
have fallen down nnd died at his
foet."
"I know,I know, but do not say
such things for my sake!"
