VOLUME 2&
NEW WESTMINSTER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY, MAY H, 1884.
NUMBER :
Still eriwllnK.
H the Viotoria Standard made
any pretensions to independence in
discussing provincial affairs, it would
surely diacoyer once io > while aome
act of the gerornment which did not
ileaerve oeusure. There are very few
jovenunente whew acta ara wholly
bad; and although an independent
newspaper may consistently oppose
o government's general polioy,, it
ihould give oredit where credit is
due. But the policy of the Standard
has been never to refer to the present government except to condemn.
Everybody must know that such a
polioy is both dishonest and inconsistent with the province of a publio
newspaper. The latest growl from
the Standard relates to the employment of Mr. Chittenden to make an
exploration of Queen Charlotte Island. It asserts that he is to receive
81600 for his labors, which inoludes
a report to be published in the West
Shore, an illuatated monthly published at Portland. It is not possible
for us to say definitely whether tbe
sum promised to Mr. Chittenden is
too large or too small. Undoubtedly
the government considered it reasonable for the service, or they would
not have entered into the arrangement, It cannot be said that his
engagement is for political purposes,
fer we believe he is not even a citizen of the country, and cannot have
any political influence. Mr. Chittenden is by no means a stranger to
the people of this provinco, however.
He has travelled extensively through
it, arid contributed a good deal of
valuable information concerning its
attractions and resources, The pamphlet whioh he published about a
year ago was-well written and obtained a large circulation, and it wob
undoubtedly the means, among
others, of enlightening the outside
world concerning British Columbia,
It has been the polioy of the present
government to make uso of every
means which might advertiso our
province. Not only have immigra
tion agenoies been established in various places, but books, pamphlets,
and newspapers have beeu frequently circulated where it was believed
they wonld do the moat good. It is
in pursuance ot that policy, we presume, that Mr. Chittenden has boen
employed to explore Queen Charlotte Islands. It is generally supposed that tho resources of these
islands are very valuable, bnt there
is really not much known definitely
about them. Surely one of the first
duties of a government iB to get
possession of all possible information
relating to ite territory, and make
use of the knowledge thus acquired
for the enrichment of the country.
The Standard objects to the employment of Mr, Chittenden because he
is not a citizen of the province, and
because he is receiving more than
his services aro worth. The value
of such services must be judged by
the results, and as the Standard does
not even profess to know what these
results may be its assertion must
pass for a mere personal opinion.
If Mr. Chittenden happens to discover in that almost unknown region
valuable resources of which we have
hitherto been ignorant, 11500 may
be a very insignificant sum to put
against the benefits of: the expedition, Even' if no such discovery is
. made, tbe money will not be thrown
away. In the course of time we
hope to have every section of this
province thoroughly explored, and
we ahould be glad to see a much
larger appropriation sot apart by the
government each yoar for that im
portant object. Whatever may be
the result of Mr. Chittenden's labors,
therefore, they must at least reduce
the area atill remaining to be explor- -j
ed. The objection against his nationality is frivolous, unlets there
are speeial circumstances to give it
force. There may or may not bo
citizens of the province who would
accomplish the mission aa well tor
|eia money, If the Standard knows
of suoh men it ihould name them.
Its mere assertion will not be accepted as sufficient. We have no
doubt that there are men enough in
thb country who would have undertaken the mission for a smaller sum,
hal ll ii tf the first importance that
the person to whom such a respon
sible trust is committed should be
thoroughly competent, We tako it
for granted that the government
satisfied itself of Mr. Chittenden's
qualifications before approaching
him, and there has been no evidence
offered against auoh an assumption,
As f sr as the revenue of the province
will admit, we believe tile-work of
exploration should be carrise] on with
vigor. The time will come when
the people of this province Will won
der at their stupidity in aot mat
ing greater efforts to unMrth the
treasures whicli will bo found hidden
in the streams and mountains of British Colombia. .   j
License and Ho License.
Our town had no saloon for tan or
twelve! years. And the sprint: nf 1882
found .lublio sentiment at ebb tide.
The town board aaid, "We need'money, need a new school house and aide-
wslks. People will drink anyway;
let's have aome high license saloons
and make a little money out of it."
Several of the business men, nominally
temperance men,' too, expressed this
opinion: "Trade ia dull, business is
leaving the town. Something must be
done to draw custom. Let's have a
saloon." Those who wero not openly
in favor of thia plan looked on with
indifference, and that silence which
gives consent. '
The result, aa might be expected,
was a license town board, and in due
time a saloon; followed a few weeks,
later by saloon number two, the latter
being named "The Little Pearl," so
very pure and sweet it was in all its
ways. License1875.76! What a lift
financially! The town smiled and
exulted.
Bat a brief experience proved the
constable was overworaed; assistant,
were found and away went (480 for
police- Then followed weeks that
need no recording; you all know.
Fights, arrests, Saturday nights an uproar till midnight, a full calaboose,
and so on through the whole category
of saloon luxuries.
One Saturday night iu Novembef
'The Littlo Pearl,'' that emblem of
purity, was discovered to be on fire.
And tn spite of vigorous work, in three
hours the flames had licked up an entire blook, save one building, and the
town was 830,000 poorer.
At the olose of the license year,
affairs stood aa follows; Total receipts
in round numbers 91,045. Total expenditures 81,591, leaving a balance
on hand of 854 with whioh to build
the new school house and to enter upon the expeniea of the new year.
Where had it gone? A. funds used
for town we find 8887 spent on lumber
for bridges and sidewalks, and -for
their conBtruetion. Town board salaries 8100, and sundries 872.
The funds that either directly or
indirectly wen wasted by drink we
count, 8480, police; 810, boarding
prisoners; 830,000 by fire, not tu
apeak of the large amounts spent nt
tne bars, tho destruction of quiet and
order, the young men who were led
into drinking and gambling and the
homes made desolate. There they
stand, the two accounts, Did tbe
saloon pay? It is truly aaid, "It's an
ill wind that blowa nobody good." For
this deplorable state of aftairs aroused
our women and led to the organization
of a W. 0. T. U. I oannot tell you
now of our work, how we hired detectives, arrested the saloon keepers with
fifteen charges against them, secured
lecturers aud converted voters, until,
by our incessant labor, the spring election of eighty-three gave us a temperance majority of tour to one.
Such was our town under "license
rule," and now how does it prosper
under no license? Quiet and order
prevail, tipsy men are a rarity, and
the fact that the lockup hss been
stored with lumber indicates the number of arrests made. The town books
ahow only 833 fines for seven months,
against 8125 for the previous year, and
but 836 for constable; publio repairs
well kept up; and money in the
treasury. '
Now let us hear the conclusion nf
the whole matter: Our town though
small can test the workings of the
licenso system as thoroughly as larger
vessels, lt waa clearly a disadvantage to us. Qive it attention and you
will see that it is an injury tn you; an
injury morally, socially and physically.
And God grant to apeed the day when
theso "make - the - town - lively" nnd
"build-up-trade" theories shall he
thoroughly exploded, and every man
stand nobly for God and homo and
native land.—Mary S Baini in Union
Signal.	
Pai'Zh FIoohs. —A now and apparently good process for covering' floors
is desoribed aa follows; "The Door is
thoroughly cleaned. The holes and
cracks are then filled with piper putty,
made by soaking newspaper in a paste
mado of wheat flour, water, and
ground alum, as follows: To one pound
of flour add three quarta of wnter and
a tablespoonful of ground alum,-and
mix thoroughly. The floor is then
coated with this paste, and.then a
thickness of manila or hardware paper
is put on. If two layers are desired,
a aecond covering of paste is put nn
the firat layer of manila paper, and
then the second thickness nf manila
Ssper is put on. This is allowed to
ry thoroughly. The manila paper is
then covered with paste, and a layer
of wall paper, of any stylo or design
desired, is put on. After allowing
thia to thoroughly dry, it is covered
with two or more coats of sizing, mado
by dissolving, one half pound of white
glue in two quarts of hot water. After
allowing thia to dry, the Burlaw is
given one coat of 'hard oil-finish varnish,' whioh comes snd is bought already prepared. This is allowed to
dry thoroughly, when tho floor is
ready for use," The process is represented to be durable and cheap, and
besides taking the placo of matting,
carpet, oil-oloths, or other like coverings, mattes the floor air-tight, aud
cajiable of being washed or scrubbed.

When the Ontario bribery cases
came up before the court at Toronto,
counsel (or the defendants put forward a number of legal objections
to tbe indiotnisii's. It was decided
to have these matters argued before
a full court, and if tbe objections
are overruled tbo cases will probably be beard some time in June.
It is said that tbe whole of the
Old Testament revision baa been
completed, and the new version will
soon be in the hands of the print-
en. As great accuracy ia necessary,
the work of printing will be slow,
but it is expected the new bible will
be ready for Bale about tbe beginning of 1885. It is known that
tbe alterations made by the revisers
in tbe Old Testament are very numerous and important, and tbe book
will be looked for with great inter
est everywhere.
The Ontario government has offered $1000 reward for the discovery of the person who placed two
veritable dynamite cartridges under tbe crewn landa office on the
31st ult. Some people believe tbat
the thing was done merely for a
joke, and others think it was the
work of persons wbo wished a job
as special watchmen. Such practical jokes are sometimes followed by
serious results, and if the jeker in
this case happens to be caught he
may have time enough for solitary
reflection.
The Week, of Toronto, does not
seem to be greatly impressed with
tbe dignity or usefulness of ths
Canadian senate. It says: "The
senate of Sir John Macdonald is
nothing but a political infirmary
and a bribery fund." We can
scarcely go as far as the Week, but
it is an undoubted fact that the
people of Canada.have long ago lest
confidence in the senate as a useful
piece of machinery. As at present
constituted it is au irresponsible in-
stitatiun which generally does just
wbat it ia asked to do by tbo political leader wbo appoints a majority
of its members. It has rarely
given any signs of political inde-
pence, and is regarded as a retreat
for ambitious or useless politicians
who have to be pensioned off at the
country's expense.
The Gambllm*- cases.
At a special meeting of the Victoria city council last Friday night
the gambling matter was further
discussed. In fact this meeting was
called specially for the purpose of
allowing Councillor McKillican to
retract certain statements which be
had made of a nature offensive
to those who refused the services of
tbe city barrister in prosecuting
these cases. But Mr. McKillican
did not make any such retraction,
He made a statement, however,
which leads us to believe that the
administration of Victoria oity affairs haa not always beon boyond
suspicion, It seems that some time
ago a meeting of the police committee was held, snd it was discovered
that gambling bad been carried on
at a certain saloon when a policeman was present, but he "didn't
see it!" Some of the people of Victoria were of the opinion that the
polios force could not bo relied upon
to put down tliis vice, and private
citisens took the matter up on their
own responsibility. The result waa
tbe capture of a number of gamblers, as already stated. The councillors who signed a statement for
bidding tbe city barrister to assist
in these cases put forward the absurd plea that they did not wish to
apend municipal funds unnecessarily.
Such a plea is a mere subterfuge.
Why sbould not breaches of tbe
law with respect to gambling be
pushed with as much vigor as uny
others) If the councillors were
consistent thoy would move to have
the oity bsrriater discharged, and
let the law protect itself. It seems
to us moat remarkable that men who
have been elected to maintain the
interests of a city should place
themselves in suoh a false position,
The statements made by Mr. McKil.
lican seem to have fully justified
the action taken by the Blue Ribbon society in employing special
detectives to put down gambling.

•niching aad Invigorating qualities as
Ayu't BaraapariUa. Quality ahould be

.District Boads,
Kroai many parts of this district
tho people are urgently asking for
roads and bridges. There is no
doubt that many of theae requests
are reasonable and just, while others
sre the reverse. People sometimes
go into the most out-of-the-way
places, where there are no means of
communication whatever, and ex-
pect the government at once to furnish them with roads, This is very
unreasonable. Everybody knows
that road-making in British Coluui
bia is a costly business, and where
the area is so large and the revenue
so limited, it must be a long time
before tbe roads can be put in a sat-
isfactory condition. . At the present
moment thero is a large amount of
road work being done iu the district. Tho Port Moody road, about
5 miles, is being pushed forward
rapidly by Mr, Jos. Wise, with
nearly 100 men. The first section
(Clarke trail) will be finished tomorrow, and the other section in
about two weeks. On the north
end of the north road, about-2 miles,
Mr. Burns has 20 men at work,
and expects to finish to-morrow.
Tho Granville road) via Hastings, is
also being repaired by Mr. Sproat,
and will be finished within two
weeks. This road is 12 miles. The
new Granville road, via False Creek
trail, 8i miles, is making considerable progress. Messrs. McDougall
Bros, are tbe contractors, and there
are 75 men employed. There has
been a good deal of complaint About
tbe character of work on tbis road;
but the specifications are very carefully drawn up, and it will be the
duty of the inspector to see that
they are fully complied with. Mr.
Angus Fraser ia improving the road
from this city to tbe North Arm
settlement. We hope to be able
shortly to announce that arrangements have been made for a road
connecting this settlement with the
False Creek road, so as to give the
people an outlet both to this city
and Burrard Inlet. Such a road is
much needed, and should be undertaken tbis year. Across the river,
the New Westminster and Yale
trunk road is being improved from
Brownville to Sumas, a distance of
about 40 miles. The Sumas lake
shore road is now under contract,
from Mr. Chadsey's to Mr. Mussel
white's, about 16 miles, and should
be finished in about two weeks. Considerable improvements will be made
in the vioinity of Lehman's Landing and Upper and Lower Matsqui,
which will enable farmers to reach
the river and markets. About 8
miles of road, principally new, is
required in that vioinity. We bear
tbat the government have also in
contemplation a wagon road across
Surrey to the boUnday lino, but we
are not in a position to indicate
what route will be taken. Suoh a
road is greatly needed. At Maple
Ridge, too, it is probable some government road work may be undertaken, The government roads now
under construction or repair in this
district aggregate neurly 100 miles,
and of those in contemplation we
can give no estimate. The facts we
have mentioned are sufficient to
show that the government is not indifferent to the great importance of
roadmaking, and that, with the
roads constructed by tbe municipalities, there will bo a marked improvement in the character of the
roads before the end of this year.
But it will undoubtedly be many
years before we may expect to see
tho roads of this long-neglected distinct in a satisfactory condition.
Evory year there ara now settlements opening up, and new roads
and bridges required, and it will
eventually become necessary to
gravel all tho main roads through
out the country.

Eirly Closino. -For aome time tlie
business houses iu this oity havu beeu
closing at 7 o'clock on Monday, Wednesday and Thursday evenings. When
thii arrangement wu established Tuesday and Friday evening! were by common cunient omitted, because these
wen kuow.li u "steamer nighta," and
to closo at 7 o'clock would be very
Inconvenient But we have no
"stoamer nights" now. There hu been
a very marked improvement thb year
over all former lemons respecting the
running of .tenmer.. Instead of arriving from Viotoria lato on Tuesday
and Friday afternoons, the stumers
now arrive shortly after noon every
day. In consequence of these enangea
it would bo worth while for the merchants to comider the propriety of
modifying the hour, nf closing. There
b no reason why nil placea of business
should not close at 7 o'cliick every night
except Saturday. In any case biisi-
neu houn are long enough for the
amount of business tnnsscted. If all
the merchants would agree to clow at
7 it would be a great deal better tor
them and their employees, and just u
well for their patrons. But such a
movement to be successful muat be
uniform. There an in almost every
community penona who are nady to
take advantage of their neighbors
whenever an opportunity presents
itself. They will perhaps refuse to
clou when othen clou, hoping thus
to catch a few stray dollars which
would othorwiso go elsowhorc. These
people have uo consideration for the
comfort or happiness of tlieir employee., but consider that the first principle of business is to make evory
possible dollar by every possible
means. We hope there are none of
thb olua in New Westminster, and
we hopo to eeo a unanimous movement
in the direction of early closing. It
b a mistake to suppose that such an
arrangement would curtail business
tnnuctions. The publio will very
soon became accustomed to the usages
of trade, employees will give a better
lorvice because it will be ahorter, and
tlrao will be allowed for needed recreation or improvement. Will aome per-
tin take up thb subject and carry it
into operation!

Coun. Robertson uid there wu going to bo a good deal of trouble come
out of thia affair if Ouun. McKillican
did not either retract what he had uid
or produce aome satisfactory proof.
He had thought fit to call the Council
corrupt and rotten .imply because
they did nnt think the ume u he did.
But he would uk thein to look at the
councillors seated at their desks aud
see if any of those called rotten looked
rotten. If ihon wu a rotten looking

a man who would nut be personal if he
called you rotten, corrupt and a liar
and you let it pan by' What would
you think of a man who would let it
go?
His Worship—I oould take ho notice
of it here.
Coun. Robertson—Then you are not
a true Britisher! You mean to uy
you'd be blackguarded here nnd on the

Lahgliv, May 8.—Yoar correspondent has been sojourning fa thit prosper*
•mi ud npidly developing settlement
for tht post weak, and during that time
hu mad* tbe round of the entire municipality, and personally interviewed nearly
all tbe settlers. His first experience
ben as a representative of she Bbitur
Columbia* has been most pleasant and
gratifying, as he finds the paper very
highly appreciated and., popular, aa will
be beat asMM by the enclosed large
list of new subscribers, whioh more tban
doubles the former number. Indeed, an
unmistakable feeling of genuine friendliness towards Tub Columbian, universal
approval of ita politics, and a frank
recognition of its merits as a news medium, are prevailing sentiments in this
section, and congratulations have been
many on its characteristic distinction as
being confessedly the paper of the mainland. Nor is the remarkable unananimity
with which the policy of the present
government Is endorsed less surprising,
especially to we whose recent advent In
the oountry enables bim only to have
but a meagre and imperfect knowledge
of tbe polities of tiae province and the
comparative merits of .party measures.
The greatest satisfaction is everywhere
expressed here with what is termed the
government's liberal, progressive and
wise policy. Guided by that antiquated
but historic lithograph, the New Westminster district map, a stranger visiting
this settlement for the first time, will
feel not a little puzzled in attempting to
discover the alleged
TOWN 0V LAHOLXV.
By reference to the map, tt will be seen
tut, fa large and emphatic Roman characters, the burgh is actually declared to
be a real, visible and tangible entity an
a bend of the south bank of tbe Fraser,
and extending from the confidence of the
Salmon creek and the river to the eastern boundary line of township 9. On
this site, however, all the evidences of a
town visible to the naked eye, even at
short range, are three ot four shanties,
standing about a mile apart, and so bidden and isolated from one another ny
reason of tbe rough, hilly surface of the
land as to render it well nigh impossible
for the inhabitants of any one of them to
discover the ascending smoke of any one
of the others. To be perfectly candid
and explicit, the town' of Langley as located and described on this artistic and
exceedingly cornet map, is simply a
myth—"a delusion and a snore." It is
true tbat away back iu the dark ages
the site wu selected for the metropolis
of the mainland, and here New Westminster was intended to he built; but
the place was subsequently abandoned
fora more suitable location. The locality
is now known as Old Derby or Old Langley.  The
'the I'urtaliuiittg railroad land U being
taken up very fast' by new comers,
chiefly from Ontario and the eastern
provinces of Canada, Since last fall
about thirty have taken up claims within the municipality, and the number is
daily increasing. These have mostly located in townships 11 and 14, bnt the
LOCAL IMMIGRATION AGENT,
Mr. Vannetta, who was appointed to tbe
onto only about three weeks ago, has
already succeeded in locating a number
of settlers in township 10 near the boundary line. He informs your correspondent that there is a large tract of bottom
land, and very easily cleared, in that locality. t The municipality has been very
lucky in securing the services of Mr.
Vaunetta. He ie an uncommonly diligent and painstaking officer, and knows
the topography of this section very thoroughly, having assisted in surveying it
under Mr. Turner. Ue is certainly the
right man in the right place, and may be
aud to be. to the manner born. The
country wonld become much more rapidly
filled up but for the want of roads, The
most of tbe laud contiguous to tbe river
and the Yale and trunk roads was taken
up by speculators previous to the passage
of the recent laud act; so that new comers hnveto go
PAH INTO THK BUSH
in order to get claims, and not a few are
frightened away by the present impassable condition of the country. The old
telegraph trail along the line of which
there is a large settlement, particularly
fa township 11, could be put in good
serviceable repair at a very small outlay,
and would be an inestimable boon to the
poor fellows shut up and struggling there
at present. About a mile of a road was
made by the council some time ago from
the river through section 26, township
11, and if this road were extended about
three miles farther or aay to tbe Yale
road, tt would give an outlet to the
river to about from fifteen to twenty
settlers.
MIMING  OPERATIONS
usual in tbis season of the year are about
ended ben, and the years crop is all
sown and planted. Last year, on account of tbe excessive drouth, tbe yietd
of cereals was fully a third less than the
average dt former years. The same is
of the potato crop. This year a
much huger acreage is under crop—fully
a third -more than last year—so that,
should the season prove favorable as is
confidently anticipated, this year's product will be fully two-thirds more than
last year'*. In this estimate no account
is taken of the increase that must accrue
from the operations of new settlers who
have taken up claims within the municipality since last fall. The soil and situation of this section are admirably adapt*
ed for tbe
ctruriVATiox ov fruit,
more so, perhaps, than any other area on
tbe lower Fraser, and consequently much
attention is being directed to the cultivation of orchards. At present there
are only two or three matured and largely
yielding ones fa the settlement. The
■proprietor of one of these fafoims your
correspondent that last year's yield of
twenty small apple trees netted bim
9360, besides giving considerable quantities away to his neighbors.
HOO-RAISING v
is pursued heie on a very large scale,
and immense flocks are to be seen running at large on the prairie. The same
is true of chickens, which are principally
raised for the eggs. Team oxen and
horses are very scarce and command a
high [.rice, t Good cows of very fair
breed are plentiful, and much attention
is given to dairying.

some ototr person. But few caie to try
its effect on their own charms. Nor
need they, since Ayer's Hair Vigor pre*
vents the hair from turning gray, and
restores gray hair to ita original color.
It cleanses the scalp, prevents the formation of dandruff, and wonderfully stimulates the growth of the hair.

NKW TOWN OP LANQI.KV
is situated about' two miles farther up
the river, and is most pleasantly and ta-
vnntageously located on an elevated
crescent, formed by the Fraser and
Langley flats. As yet, however, the
town is only in embryo, but backed as it
is by a very, rich agricultural district, it
is certainly destined at no very distant
day to become an important point. At
present the town consists of one hotel,
two general stores, church aud sohool
house, and several private dwelling*.
There is a good saw mill in the immediate neighborhood, but it has been idl-'
for some time from want ot logs, Tlir
municipality of Langley is very large,
embracing several townships, and from
personal observation aud dllligeitt inquiries, it may be confidently stated tbat
there are very few bait or indifferent i
sections of land fa the whole distriot.
The soli of tlie prairie Is a
s.       RICH BLACK. LOAM
of the best quality, The Und, however,
with the exception of one or two spots,
is very wet and mucky on account of
surface water, aud must be thoroughly
undcrdralned befon it can be successfully cultivated. This oan be easily and
cheaply accomplished as there is an et-
cellent fall, There an a number of
Urge farms on the prairie, some of which
an fa a very fair atate of cultivation,
All the Hudson Bay laud except two. or
three lota bu been sold, and the purchasers settled an their farms, the most

Editor Colvmman. —In your valuable
paper of the 28th April I noticed ah article beaded "A Remarkable Man." It
is stated that he runs the government
single-handed, and a number of other
jobs, suoh as editing two newspapers,
etc., and still has lots of time on his
hands. No doubt be is fully equal to all
this; but if ho is, I would- advise him to
tike a trip as far as Upper Sumas, or send
some one who Is acquainted with tbe
roads and bridges whioh an in need of
repairs. Two years have gone, and
nothing has been done on the prairie,
and it is not safe to cross over the
bridges. Things have come to a pretty
pass when ono has to repair roads and
bridges as he goes, or bo in danger of
losing life or property, I mysolt have
lost ?IO0 by horses nnd cattle stepping
through nnd breaking their legs. Tho
other day my business took mo to Mr.
Campbell a with mares, and I was obliged
to repair the approaches to some of the
bridges in tinier to get over safely. A
number of new settlers hnve lately come
fa who will undoubtedly sustaiu loss
through the defects complained of, As
a taxpayer I hope the --remarkable man"
will attend to the.se matters without
delay. Hoping you will find space in
your independent paper for this, I ntrt,

bu remembered -that there .ire hundreds
of miles of mul wanted Iu this district,

possible for the government to undoi-take

A Grievance
Kiutor CoixMiius.—As residents of
New Westminster, we cannot but feel
gratified to notice tlie' evident signs of
prosperity as exhibited in the cnluige-
meut and activity of our lumber-mills
and factories; yet associated with them
wc have what may justly bo termed "a
grioranee," A stranger iu the placo
might naturally and innocently enquire
if these pUces of industry givo employment to all tho families in our town, and
if nn that account they find it necessary
to rouse the whole community every
time they go to work in ordor to got a
supply of workmen; for between five
and six o'clock every morning there an
no less thau twelve long, piercing shrieks
sent out from their steam whistles over
thn slumbering city, just sufficiently
divided one from the other to effectually
prevent many persons from obtaining
any more sleep beforo the time comes
when they are obliged to rise. It would
not seem so cruel if a abort business-like
toot was given, every half hour, for the
benefit of the workmen who belong to
tha mills, though even that seams un*
mmmmmmmmmsm
necessary; but whit we complain of 1*
the torturous length and breadth and
thickness of each whistle, first three
blasts, then two more and lastly one.
And in this connection we must not permit the steamboat companies to escape
their share of merited censure, for they
also unmercifully inflict their six elongated screams upon the whole community
every tune tbey leave port, even when
tbat occurs between the hours of midnight and sunrise. In Portland a marked
difference ia observed. There quiet aad
order prevail in this respect. Each
steamer has ite schedule tune for starting, which is regularly inserted fa tbe
newspapers and upon which tbe traveling publio can depend, and all wbo desire
to do so convey themselves and their
effects to the proper steamer at the pro-
Ear time, aud without any noise or pub-
o disturbance tbe several steamers go
their way, simply giving a short farewell
toot to those around the wharf. Why
cannot some such plan be made to work
here as well as there ? I am sure the
steamboat and mill men can have uo idea
bow distressing these oft • repeated
screeches prove to the sick, the nervous
and the wakeful ones all around us, or
tbey would be more considerate and thus
observe tbe "golden rule." Just aa consistently might aU our storekeepers and
business men, in an equally noisy mauner
call their employees together or inform
tho publio they were ready to receive
customers, if each one had but a steam
whistle attached to bis premises. Because a man owns a steam whistle there
seems no necessity for bim to annoy the
whole community with it, even aa the
children do their friends and neighbors
with their tin horns and drams. Hoping tbis subject will be agitated until redress is obtained, I remain

The Cuban Outbreak.
Havana, April 28.—A Urge number
of pasquinades have appeared hen,
some being distributed through the
oity, others posted on the street corners, Tbey call on the people to join
the Aguero movement to assist in
throwing off the Spanish yoke, all
hopes of better government having
vanished. It is reported that a number of penona have been arrested,
charged with distributing a treasonable
paper. The troops have not yet succeeded in annihilating the insurgents.
The few of the Utter who have been
killed have been replaced by new adherents.
New York, April 18. —It is reported
that Spain has offered to sell Cuba to
Mexico, and that Mexico has agreed
to take it on condition tbat the Cubans
consent by plebiscite; that stated Mexican bonds are to be given in lieu of
purchase money, end that Spain demands that the United States shall become security for the amount. The
editor of the El Separatista says the
story is in the main correct, and that
Minister Foster is now at Washington
to see if the United States Government will be satisfied with the arrangement. Also, that General Aldaraa,
formerly agent of the Cuban Junta,
has gone to Havana to confer with the
Cubans and Spaniards on the subject.
Washington, April 28.—The Spanish Minister aaid to-night in relation
to the report of the Hie of Cuba to
Mexico that it-was unreasonable and
absurd. Spain, be said, would never
consent to part with Cuba unless that
island was wrested from her by force.
The Mexican Minister thought the re*
port highly improbable.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
I obeyed, and aa I did w I fancied
I heard a low sob from within, and
then ihe came to the door, drawing
down-tha veil; but I could aee through
it that her eyes were red and swollen,
as if she had been weeping.
■ "Now, my dearest, come, say good-
by to Nellie," and Dudley, taking her
reluctant hand, led her down to the
hall.
There wen few to whom to say farewell; in a minute he had placed her
in the carriage, and was shaking hands
with Bruce and Herwald, and then lie
came to me.
I -don't think he said anything, and
I know I did nod; bot as he stooped
to kisa me, I held him round the
neck, as if I could nerer lot him go.
And then there was the crack of tho
whip, gray horses tearing down the
avenue, a hand-waving from the window, and they ware gone.
"Now, then," cried Bruce, bustling
in. joyously, "wo have ordered tho
other carriage up, and we are going
to drive to Stony Clift and Pharo's
Folly—you will go with us, Nell?"
"No, no," I returned, drawing back
nervously, "make up the party without roe—I must go home."
"Go Uomol' responded Bruco.
"Nonsense, child; I won't have you
alt and mope alone."
"Indeed, indeed, I havo a headache,
and can't talk. Please let ine alone,
Bruco."
"She will be far hotter left to herself," interrupted Herwald, for which
I thanked him with a grateful smile,
"Katie shall take your place if you
like, nnd we shall all be home in an
hour or two,"
"Very well," agreed Bruce, "only
mind and got us a first-rate tea—these
cold collations are dead failures. I
shall bo famished by six o'clock."
And thon they took me down the
avenue to the elm tree stile and lot me
go.
And so I entered Sunnyside. Sunnyside—what was it now 'I four blank
walls and nothing else.
Slowly I dragged up the stairs with
thut sense of bitter loss at my heart,
and went into Dudley's room.
It was just as he had left it in the
morning—things strewn about, a coat
here and a vaistcoat there; hia dear
little Scotch cap lying on tho pillows;
I took it up ana fingered it tenderly,
and then began to straighten tho room.
Thero was a tweed shooting-coat
hanging behind the door; it felt warm,
and soft, and pleasant, and I laid my
cheek against it before I put it away;
and then I took up tho Scotch cap
again, and sat down by the bod, and
laid my head upon the pillow where
his was never to rest agam, and cried
as if my heart would break, and till I
could cry no more.
Blundering footsteps in the dusky
passage outside, and then Bruce came
in, knocking over half a dozen things
as he did so.    •
- "Confound it all, 1 shall break my
neck directly. Are you here, Nellie ?
—yet, there you are, and Kitty's right,
as she always is;" and sitting down on
the bed, Bruce regarded me for some
time with a rueful countenance.
"I aay, Nellie, old girl, don't fret so,
it makes us all so sorry to see you take
it to heart like this. Why, Dudley ia
as right as a trivet, if you would only
think so and cheer up.
"I am so lonely," I sobbed—"I am
ao lonely in this old house by myself.
Louie is gone, and you, Bruce, and
Charlie, and Halcot; and now Dudley
has left inefwhat am I to live tor?"
"Live for?" cried Bruce, fondling
iny hair with an uncertain hand; "why,
life is the jolliest thing in the world.
Nell, if you would only see it pro
perly.'
"Ic
[ can't see it at all," I repeated; "it
is aU trouble, and pain, nnd loss—loss,
and pain, and trouble. I dun't know
what I am to do, Bruce, I am no very,
very lonely."
"My bonnio dearie/' cried Katie,
rustling up in her soft crisp silks, and
her honest face brimful of sympathy,
"my bonnie deano, have you forgotten
Keith?"
"Ay, I declare I had for tho minute," returned Bruce; "that's the
right chord, lassie, wo shall make it all
straight uow. Why, Nellie, I don't
believe you care a bit for the man who
has loved you all his life."
"I do," I answered, startled into a
sudden avowal, "I do care for him
very much, but what is the use of
tliat r
"Then if you do care," returned
Bruce, earnestly, his lmtidsotuo faco
flushing as he spoke, "think of hiin as
much as you can—think of him, and
find comfort in the thought; your life
is not objectless, Nellie, it is full of
hope, a nope that will eventually be
realized, and all the brighter for this
weary waiting, that has tried you so.
"He ia worth it," murmured Katie;
"tender and true is Keith, and it is
not you that will deny it, dearie."
And then they talked to mu and
cheered mo so heartily and yet so lovingly, that tho bitter hour passed, and
I could smile and be myself again.
And then we went down-stairs, and
Katie made tea, and 1 sat beside her,
and Herwald and Bruco both petted
and made much of me, and tho evoning was not so bad after all.
And the next day but one Herwald
took me to Hurst Hall, and my dear
Louie's loving care, and the pleasure
that hor sweet habe yielded me, soon
aet me right; and in hen and Miliy's
companionship the two months passed
as Dudley bad prophesied.
And every now and then came Dudley's happy letters, and little shy loving ones from Eleanor, and I could
aee they were happy and at rest, and I
was satisfied.
It was Christmas-eve, and I was
standing alone in the Sunnyside drawing-room, waiting for tho carriage to
take me round to tho parsonage; for
there were to be gnat doings there tonight, to celebrate Seymour s sixteenth
birthday and fint coming home.
It waa not one of the usual clerical
Ua part.ua, that had taken place dur-
ioff my stay in the north, but a gathering on a muoh larger scale, for ull
the notabilities of the neighborhood
weru to bo there, and not only Katie
and Bruce wen coining, but Dudley
had promised to bring his wife nnd
some guests who had lately arrived at I
the Priory in the persons of Herwald
and Louie,
Katie, who was now as much nt
home at the parsonage as I, was deputy
mistress of the ceremonies in my
place; and it was ahe who arranged
the programmo of the evening, and
ordered the various amusements, for
there waa to be dancing in the library
for auch young people aa liked—tableaux in tlw dining-room, and tea and
talk In the drawing-room, to whieh
latter apartment the Mortimer folks
watt sun to restrict themselves.
So there I stood in the dim fire-light
in my low evening-dress, clasping the
coral and pearl ornaments on my neck
and arms, and feeling rather strange.
It was early of coune when we arrivod, for Halcot, whp rode rampant
on such occasions by virtue of the
friendship of his Pythias, was in a
fever of excitement till we were there;
but early aa it waa, Katie camo running out to meet us, looking wonderfully pretty in her silk train and a
crimson roso in her hair.
"You dear lassie, to como so soon,"
she cried, unwinding me from my
wraps, and shaking out my dress;
"now stand still, aud let me have a
good look at you."
"Well, Kitty 1 what now!" for she
eyed me over curiously with a little
smile to herself; "you are not going to
find fault with me, I hope?"
"Find fault with you, my white
rosebud! nay, that would not be possible; for a more gracious bewitching
lady I have never set eyes upon. You
must forgive my looking at you, dearie,
for I havo never soon Nellie Mortimer
in jewels befon."
"I shalt call her a white lily of the
valley," said Seymour, coming behind
and giving me a hug.
"Or the Queen of Sheba," echood
Halcot, "for she cuts Mrs. Kitty out
no end."
For whioh compliment Kitty first
made him a face, and then boxed his
ean; after which they dressed up Rill
as Red Riding-hood, and put her bo-
hind the curtains to try the effect,
while Halcot lay down at her feet in a
leopard-skin rug as a dim personification of the wolf.
Rill looked so lovely in hor little
scarlet hood, with hev pouting mouth
and small dimpled hands crossed ovor
her basket of butter, that Mr. Egerton
brought his wife in to see her, who
spoiled all immediately by taking her
up in her arms and smothering her
with kisses; upon which wolf growled
and then showed his teeth.
"Mn. Egerton," cried Katie, pouncing tiriskly upon her, "wo can't have
you injure.our tableaux like this;
please take her away, Nellie, aud both
of you stop in the drawing-room—you
aro only wasting our time—and send
Bruce to us when he comes."
So we went back to the drawing-
room, now warm and rudy with light,
with one small curate turning ovor the
photographic album ou the centor
table, whom Mr. Egerton immediately
pinned and bore off to the rug, while
his wife and I sipped coffee and talked
in whispers.
Presently appeared Mistress Katie,
looking trim and important, with
Bruce and the boys following her.
But scarcely had they taken their
places before the knocker began to
work, and arrivals to commence, after
which the room filled rapidly.
Such a medley of hnppy faces, girls
with black eyes and long sashes, and
boys grouped confusedly about the
door; the ThorntonB arrayed for conquest at all points, and a sprinkling of
curates, the Waldegraves, Stephen-
sons, and a host more; till Mr. Egerton began to gasp for breath, and look
longingly at the curtained windows,
upon which Katie and Seymour exchanged glances, and at the tinkling
of a very small bell tlie tableaux commenced and the crowd drifted into the
other room.
"I say, Nellie, whispered Bruce,
when the fint was over and the second
preparing, how late the Priory people
are; they will lose Red Riding-hood
after all."
Which they did; and not onty that,
but the rest of tho tableaux; and then
the young people began to danco in
the library to Ada Thornton's music,
while I sat still in my quiet corner, a
silent, but amused spectator of the
whole.
Presently came a loud peal that rang
through the house, and a stir ana
commotion about the door; and thon
Louie and Eleanor eame in together,
exeiting no small admiration as they
passed up tho crowded room.
Two such lovely women they were,
ono in velvet and diamonds, the other
in bride's dress of silk and pearls:
Louie with tier grand open lovesble
faco, and Eleanor with weird lustrous
eyes and wonderful yellow hair. No
marvel, then, the busy knots of talk
en ceased their hum Of tongues, and
glances and whispen were exchanged
on the comparative merits of tho rival
beauties.
But where were Herwald and—
"Nellie, deur," said Dudley's voice
so close that I was fairly startled,
not having seen him come in, "you
must allow mu to introduce an old
friend to you."
And thon I became aware that some
one was bonding over me, so low as
almost to touch my face with a long
soft beard, and, looking up, I saw the
glance of two dark eyea, while a sudden recognition thrilled me to tho
heart, for I found that I waa looking
up into the face of Keith Cameron,
and that his gloved hand was holding
mine firmly, closely, tightly, as if it
would never let it go. And then I
don't know what happened, save that
the room seemed swimming in circles
of light, and that the humming of
innumerable bees were keoping pace
with the pulses of my heart, and that
Dudley's arm was round mo, while hiB
voice was speaking afar off.
"We have managed it too suddenly,
Keith: but what could we do? Keep
hem a few minutes, and I will take
her n way. Come, Nellie, darling,
lean on me; no one will notico you;
the room is so hot, vou know. Mako
a path for us, Herwald, please. Thero,
that is a brave child. I was afraid you
were going to faint."
And so lie took me away, but not to
the refreshment-room—that was full
of people*—but to tho deserted, dimly-
lighted cloak-room, where we found
Katie sitting by herself and crying
heartily.
"Oh, Nellie—my bonnio boy that I
have just seen!" she began.
But Dudley stopped her; so she fell
to kissing my hands instead, and
laughing hysterically, till Bruce came
in and coddled her and took her away.
"Woll, little one, how do you feel
now—better?"
"Oh, I am quite well," I returned,
unsteadily; "but—but—Dudley, lire
you aura it is uot a dream?"
"A true ono, at any rate," he remarked, laughing; "you see the reason
of our delay now?"
"What delay? Oh, don't talk to
mo." I answered, beginning to crimson
violently; "I wish you would take me
away somewhere, where nobody can
seo mo.   I don't know what to do."
"My dear child," ho returned,
seriously, VI can't take you away;
think how it would look."
"Then leave me alone a little while.
I can't collect my thoughts; they seem
going everywhere. Dear Dudley,
please leave me to myself."
