The Dock Committee's Report.
•' ■ .' OT!   ¥i— '
Following Is th. full te»t of the
Report nf till Ury Duck Oommittee,
preeenled to tbjfcHouM an Monday:—
Hi. SM.ni:-
Your eomnijtt.. aince ita appoint-
m.nt hu been daily engaged in examining penone, papers .ml corns-
pondsnee relating to Hi. Esquimau
-raving dock, whicli they hand you
lereirith. The whole subject has not
beort othauated, but aulHcient evidence
haa been obtained to make clear to
your committee the leading fact, in
connection with the dock, wliich it
now begs leave to report:
I. That the cement tonight in 1874
was erdered by the Walkem government on the recommendation of Mr.
Bea.en, then chief commiasloner of
lands arid works.
If. That Mr. Sproat's letters in 1874
and 1875 to the provincial government
show that large additional quantities
of cement would be required for the
main dook.
. 8. That the cement purchased in
1874 was for the cofferdam and seawall of the dock.
4. That Mr. Heaven's report as chief
commissioner of lands ami works,
dated 30 November, 1870, makes no
reference to the facts contained in
Mr. Sproat's letters'relating to additional cement required for the dock.
6. That in his' report Mr. Beavou
Juotes from Mr. Sproat's letter of
anuary, 1874, in a way whieh misled
the legi.latura and Conveyed the idea
that all Ihe cement for the dock had
been obtained, while he suppressed
that part of the letter which contained
tho Information that more cement
would be required.
6. That no detailed estimate of tho
coat of the dock was ever received
from Kinniple ,fc Morris, and that no
estimate was asked for by the government.
7. That taking into account depreciation. Interest, rent and other ileitis
fai.ly chargeable against cement bought
in 1874 and used iu 1881-2 the first
cost hu become a total loss to thia province.
8. That Mr. Bennett's services aa
resident engineer for Kinniple &
Morris, the- chief engineers, terminated July, 1879, and that he has
never received an appointment from
the provincial government, nor any
written instructiona from tiie ehiof
commissioner of lsnda and works its
to liis duties on thu Esquimau graving
dock.
0. Thst when the letting of the
main dock contract, whieh rcquir.il tliu
provincial government to supply the
contractors with all the cement, was
under consideration by Messrs. Walkom, Beaven and Bennett, Mesui-!,.
Walkem and Heaven did not communicate' to Mr. Bennett the informatioi,
contained in Mr. Sproat's enrrespon-
dence about more c.inuut being required. Neither did they when dismissing with him tbe advisability of
including Iho cement in tha contract,
inform him that when Mr. Morri.
suggested this purchase of tho cement
by the government he suggested also
that the contractor, should arrange to
purchase it of the givorninent.
10. That shortly after tho dook contract wa. let tho site of the dock was
changed 43 feet 6 inches by Air. Ilen-
nett, and that the chief cninmissimior
waa unaware until recently that such
a change had been made.
II. That complaints were made two
or three times by the contractors to
tho chief commissioner of lands and
works of the inferior quality of cement supplied thein, and, that the
quantity wu not increased to make
good tho standard of tho strength required by tho specifications.
12. That the cliief commissioner of
lands and works never ox-imined the
hook ot tests kept by Mr. Bennett to
sh what the quality of the cement
really wu, nor aid ho enquire whether
tho proportione of cement had been
increased u required by the specifications.
13. That the Imperial grant of £50,-
000 in aid of the Eaquimslt dock wss
conditional upon the plana and specifications drawn up by Kinniple & Morris, being approved by the admiralty•
14. That the dock plans and specifications before thoy wero sent to this
province woro duly .Jammed, approved arid signed by Colonel Paisley
on behalf of the admiralty.
15. That Mr. Walkem, the chief
commissioner nf lends and works, before lotting tho dock contract, mado
oitensive alterations in the, apecili-
catibno, largely euUtitotiug hmii.lt
tof the engineers, thus increasing his
powara, and reSuoiiig thoir responsi-
16. That thia substitution by Mr.
Walkem of himself for the engineers
j wu done contrary to the advice of tho
1 engineers u eipressed in their letter
I of 20th January, 1876, to Mr. Heaven,
; in which they state .that they had
j thrfniaelvee gone as far u thoy safely
> could in that direction.
) 17. That before ' committing' tilts
Megislature to the agreement with the
j Dominion by assuring it that oscltid-
J ing put expenditure the cost of the
I dock would fall considerably below the
^Imperial and Dominion subsidies, the
leader of   the. government made no
lalculationa which   justified   hiin in
giving euohaaae.nr.iic..
j   18. That the chief culinniationei' of
[[lands and works took nn steps to verify
iirdisprovl*ua«ouracjrof Mr. Ilen-

NUMBER 26
of 4,400 tons of cement being required
for the dock until the 21st December
when hi sent a teleyram tu Mebsrs.
Kinniple & Murris.
19. Tlmt the chief gommisiioner nf
lnndaand works novor naked fop or.
obtained Mr. Bennett's calculation io
as to have it checked hy competent
Mmuiil until ytiur committee called
: 90. Tlmt your committee hnviug
dlmevtred errors in Mr. BenneH'n
eftleuliition requested him to make
another which shows an ii.cro.ue of
shout 1000 tons.
21. That to get at the probable
quantity of cement inquired for the
construction of the iftiok your committee obtained the following estimates
from gentlemen competent to make
them:
F. O. Gamble, O. E., 6010 tons.
A. S. Farwell, 0. K., 01123 tons.
Mr. Mohun, C. E.t 6003 tons.
Hon. J. W. Trutch presented figures
—4 estimates, ranging from 6010 to
0800 tons,
W. S. Gore, Surveyor-General.
5421 and 0210.
W. Bennett, 0. E., 60D5 and 6517.
22. That although the legislature at
its last session only voted 03400 for
100 tons cement the government have
purchased about 1200 tons which will
cost between $30,000 and 940,000.
23. That, most of the cement bought
has been under the alleged authority
contained in the Graving Dock Act of
1870 which denls with the Dominion
grant of $250,000 and which nan only
be expended in certificates of work
done on the dock under tho contract
and is not available for the purchase
of material.
24. That the cement purchased
without authority was ordered partly
by telephone and partly by telegraph.
25. That no tendors appear to havo
boon called for for the ct-mout bought
in San Francisco, which from tests
mado by Mr Bennett is of inferior
quality to that required by the specifications.
Your committee is of opinion—
That when the magnitude of the
cement requirements became known
to the chief ciuiiiimsionor of lands and
works he should at. once havu requested
one of tha firm of Kinniple it Morris
to come out us their agreement calls
for to examine into matters and see
what was M*t to be done.
That wile-in some largo saving can
be effected in the quantity of cement
by substistuting natural stone for artificial, tho dock will cost from 9200,000
to one quarter of a million more than
estimated by the government last
session.
government have shown a
grsiu ...nil, of business ability and
havo seriously mismanaged'matters in
connection with the Esqnimalt dock.
That it has misled the legislature as
to the actu .1 position of affairs nnd
has abused its position to expend a
Urge sum uf monoy without authority from tile legislature.
That the result of the government's
mismanagement, unless checked by
this legislature, must bo a heavy drain
upon the finances of the province, and
monies that' would under good mtui-
agomui'' have been available for roads
and other necessary pnhlic works will
he swuliowod up liy the dock which
Mr. Wnl em has on several occasions
emphatically declared would not cost
the country another dollar.

The Fishery Interests.
A closer examination into the
whole subject leads ns to conclude
tliat the adoption of the suggestions
si) 'kindly made by the Victoria
Board of trade would exert an in-
jirioitli; influence upon the fishing industry of the province. We shall
briefly state some of the reasons for
arriving at this conclusion. The
scheme recommended by the Board
would appear to be this: The close
time; of/twenty-four hours every
week proving an ineffectual protection to the fish, canneries should
be licensed and limited in' nmn-
her, and ell fishing, except under tech licenses, strictly prohibited j
and the Lieutenant-Governor, the
Fishery Inspector and the Indian
Commissioner should, ex-offido, constitute a Board for granting licenses,
end (presumably) for determining
the number of canneries or other
fishing establishment! that shall be
permitted in any of the rivers, bays,
er inlets of the province. It would,
perhaps, be difficult to name three
men in whom a discretionary power
might be more safely reposed than
the present incumbents of these offices ; but what guarantee is there
that like men shall always occupy
these positions t But we should not
like to see such a power placed iu
the hands of any three men. How
would it be possible for them to become sufficiently familiar with every
river, bay, and inlet to be able* to
form a correct opinion as to the number of establishments that should be
licensed I And how, we should like
to know, is over-fishing to be prevented by merely limiting the number of canneries! Tako the eight canneries that were operating on this
river last season. They put np on
an average, say, twenty thousand
cases apieoe. Suppose the Board
should, in their wisdom, decide that
the eight were enough on the Lower
Fraser, what would hinder these
canneries so increasing their capacity
as to put up forty thousand cases
apiece 1 That would be equal to sixteen canneries, aa they are run at
pitsent, ao that, as a means of preventing over-fishing, the restriction
of numbers would completely fail.
Limit the capacity, the operations as
well as the number of canneries 1
That would, indeed, be an arbitrary
interference with trade and industry.
The fact is that it is not by limiting
either the number or operations of
canneries, or both, that the extermination of salmon can be most effectually and advantageously prevented. The proper, the only proper
preventive is to be found in the judicious and firm enforcement of a
sufficient cloae time to allow fish to
pats up to their spawning beds, and
the propagation of tho spring salmon
by means of hatcheries. The Board
of Trade consider the present close
time of 24 hours each week ineffectual for that object, and they assert
that to extend that time "would be
detrimental to the fishing industry,
as tbe runs of fish aro limited to
short periods, of which canneries
must take the utmost advantage in
order to make the business profitable." Now, this conclusion ia to a
certain extent the result of misapprehension. Tlie close time ia not
long enough, we admit. It should
be from 6 *. tn. on Saturday till 6
p. m. on Sunday. The only run to
which the latter remarks of the
Board apply ie that of the sockeye,
which generally continues from about
the middle of July till well on towards the middle of August—sometimes shorter, sometimes longer. 3ut
th* sockeye ia a fish that comes iu
inch numbers that it needs not tha
protection of a close time. Unless
highly improper methods of fishing
ire resorted to, an abundant supply
of these, fish will find their way past,
and there ia no fear of over-fishing
them. If there were twice as many
canneries on the river, only a com
parative'y small number of the sock
eyes would ba caught This is, there
fet»Va tribe that can well take care
of itself, and during the period of its
run there need be no close time at
all. Let the fisherman take them
ai libitum—ot course, having due
regard to th* capacity for utililizing
th,, fish.. Thru, then, the difficulty
whieh ires present to the minds of
the Board of Trade at once disap
pears. It is the spring salmon that
should be protected by a close time
and propagated by hatcheries ; and
thero seems no reason to doubt that,
if this were done the result would
be that, instead of a short and uncertain run, there would he a steady
and regular supply of fish for five or
six months in the year, rendering
the industry much more attractive
to capital and very much more profit
able to the country. Instead of
having to rely upon a abort spurt,
and crowd on heathen labor under
conditions not always satisfactory to
the employer and never very profitable to the country, white labor could
be utilized to a very great extent
anil the fish-harvest would extend
over the wliole season, thus enabling
the work to be done better and to
greater and more certain profit.
Place no unnecessary restrictions
upon the industry, Let the number
of canneries and boats bo regulated
by the exigencies of the trad*; and,
instead of placing a nominal license-
fee upon the 'canneries, put suob a
license fee upon the boats as will
suffice to defray tbe expenses of
maintaining a hatchery. Do that,
and enforce a weekly close time of
36 hours-, except during the great
sockeye invasion, and the Fraser
will be found to yield enough to employ twice as many canneries, while
the industry will provo more satisfactory to those who embark in it
and greatly more advantageous to
the country. Of course, what applies to the Fraser will more or leu
apply to other waters. There are
other branches of this important
subject remaining to be discussed.
"Oh! Consistency," Ac.
"Rats deserting a sinking ship" is
a figure of speech illustrative of the
present political situation. At no
time does one look for consistency
from tho local organ of the dying
party. Least of all is it to be expected now. Its last leading article
opened thus: "Our readers will re-
"member the persistency with which
"this journal advocated a ra-distribu-
"tion of seats. The claims of tbia
"district te an additional member
"wero clearly set forth, and ovory
"reasonable person must admit their
"cogency." Having thus delivered
itself, the organ wheels into line
with the enemies of the district, and
sets itself to work to prove that the
time has not come when justice
should be done to the Lower Fraser,
and it constructively justifies the
Walkemitea in their refusal to carry
out their pledges in that respect.
We are amongst the very few who
have been constant readers of th*
Guardian since it became the organ
of the moribund government, and a
proper regard for truth compels us
to say that we have no recollection
of its having, either persistently or
otherwise, advocated anything of the
kind. But even if it had don* so,
surely it should havo -the decency to
say nothing about it, now that it
deliberately sets itself against th*
very thing of which it claima to
have been the persistent advocate.
In one breath it declares that every
reasonable person must admit th*
cogency of the arguments in favor of
conceding another member to th*
district, and in the very next it sides
in with those who have, according to
its own logic, proved themselves to
be both unreasonable and unjust.
As we said before, inconsistency on
the part of our local contemporary
can surprise no one. It is ihe, normal condition of the animal. But
we must contest to surprise at finding our usually fair and liberal contemporary of the Nanaimo Free Frets
taking the position he does in regard
to this question. Nanaimo was palpably under represented, and New
Westminster supported a measure to
do her justice. Having secured a
second mamber for her five hundred
voters, shall Nanaimo now turn
round and deny New Westminster a
third member for her eight hundred
voteral We will not believe it. We
prefer to believe that, in thia matter
at least, the Free Press is not in accord with the intelligent public
opinion of- Nanaimo.

Hono Kono Coming!—A San Francisco dispatch says there are about
400,000 Chinese congregating in Hong
Kong who intend to come to this coast
soon. It is stated that they come as
English citizens from an English port,
and thus soek to evade the prohibitory
provision of the Chinese bill, should
it become a law.
Importation, op Chinese. '— The
Globe's Ottawa correspondent, undor
date, March 8th, says:—It is stated
here ■ on good, authority that Messrs.
Onderdonk & Mills, Sir Charles tup-
per's favorite contractors, have their
agent in China collecting Chinese
laborers, and have an interest in vessels in Which they are to be shipped to
Canada to work on their Pacific Railway contract.
Annihilation op Time and Space. —
tt would appear, from a statement
made by Postmastor-Gcneral Howe,
tbe other. day, that a scheme is being
matured by which the United States
Mails will be transmitted overall trunk
railway lines at a greatly accelerated
rate of speed. Under this arrangement it is stated tliat the mails wilt
pass between New York and San Francisco in five days. It takes six and
a half at present.

Thb Ontahio Boundary.—The Ontario Legislature has passed a aeries of
very strong resolutions, setting forth
the rights of the Province, stating the
grounds upon which they nre willing to
refer the matter in dispute to tlie Imperial Privy Council and declaring it
to be the duty and determination of
the Province meanwhile to hold poi-
■esaion and administer the Government
of the disputed territory. The resolutions were passed by a vote of 50 to
25.

The Island Railway. — Messrs.
Dunsmuir cV Diggle, with whom are
associated Messrs. Crueller & Stanford
of tbe Central Pacific Railroad Company, have secured (so far as tho Dominion government can grant it) the
franchise to build a line of railway
from Victoria to Nanaimo within two
years from date of commencement.
Tho consideration is a conveyance of
the unoccupied portion of the, coal belt
lying uetweeu Victoria and Courtenay
river, Comox, with a possible money
subsidy from the Dominion government. —Colonist
The Struggle and (he Victory.
The long and bitter struggle against
Chinese immigration has been won by
■California. On Thursday the 2.1i*d of
March, 1882, the bill suspending Chinese immigration _ for twenty years
passed the United States Congress by
a vote of 177 to 65. Of the 177 ayes,
112 were Democrats and 05 Republicans. Of the 65 noes, 61 were Republicans and 4 Democrats, The great
bulk of the opposition to thu bill was
Republican. The heavy proponilerancu
in its favor was Democratic. But although tho battle has been fought and
won in tho House, there seems to be
a probability of the bill being^etoed
by the President, Telegrams from all
parts of the Union, excepting the Pacific Coast, have been flowing in by
the hundreds, urging the exercise of
the veto power, and, according to the
latest news, the President is nnder-
stood to incline that way, He objects
to the 20 years—wouldn't mind 10
years.

A Suqht Difference.—On Thursday some Chinamen employed at Fin-
ley son's cannery reported having discovered the dead body of "a big white
man." The matter having buen reported to the Government Agent, he
dispatched Officer Wiggins to the spot,
but the body turned out to be that of
a big white heiferl
More Fruit.—Some people have
been wicked enough to question the
success of the DeCosmos mission to
England, To such as have not been
fully convinced already we would say,
Look at the Dunsmuir Syndicate to
'build the Island railway! Is not that
conclusive proof of the wonderful success uf the mission ?
From San Francisco Direct,—The
steamship Fii-forict, Capt. Pluminer,
arrived from San Francisce direct
shortly before noon on Wednesday.
SKe brought forty-t wo passengers and
a general freight. The list of passengers and consignees will be found under the proper head. Tlie Victoria
left for Nanaimo on Thursday.

The New Dominion Buildings.—
The contractor, Mr. Hayward, has
been up and has made arrangements
for preparing the site. The old buildings will be removed as far ovor as
the old assay oAke, possibly as far as
the Indian otlice, and the sito witl be
graded down to the level of Columbia
street. Work will be commenced
next week.
Uniform Franchise,—Mr. Wallace
introduced a resolution in the Dominion House of Commons for the establishment of a uniform manhood suffrage throughout the Dominion. The
resolution woe vuted down, but .it was
understood that Sir John Macdonald
would bring in a measure establishing
a uniform franchise, yet not quite
broad as "manhood."
The Legislature.'—The dry-dock
disenssum occupied the House on Wednesday and Thursday and Friday. On
Wednesday Mr. Smithe made a very
able speech, and on Thursday Messrs.
Wilson and Mara did likewise. These
speeches are very fully reported in the
Cofouuf, and ought to ba read . by
everybody. We feel confident that
no candid person can road them without being thoroughly convinced of the
gross culpability of the Government
and the necessity of deposing these
men as quickly as possible, bpforu they
can do any more mischief/   .     ,q

Bible Society. —JIr Annual, meeting was held in the Methodist Church
on Thursday evening, Mr. J. 0. Brown
in tho Chair. The Rev. Mr. Jamieson,
Secretary of the Society, read the Report and addressed the meeting. The
Treasurer (Mr. C. G. Major) read his
Report, showing a balance on hand
after paying the book account and
making a donation to tho parent society. Rev. Mr. Robson also addressed
the meeting. The attendance was very
good and 850 was subscribed at the
meeting. All the old officers were reelected. The meeting was, altogether,
a very satisfactory one.

The Nelson Challenge Cup.—The
cup so generously presented to the
Now Westminster Rifle Association by
tlie Hon. Senator. Nelson of Burrard
Inlet, arrived from England the other
day, and is on view in Capt. Peele's
window. It is of solid Hall-marked
silver, massive and beautiful, and suitably inscribed. We believe it cost
thirty pounds sterling, and, bo far as
are aware, it is the finest trophy
yet offered. The New Westminster
Rifle Association may well feel, proud
of tho cup, and of ite generous President who gave it. Competition for
this oup will doubtless be keen.

Canada's Future.—The London
Morning Post in an editorial on Lord
Lome's speech at the opening of tho
Dominion Parliament says there is
abundant testimony nf the quality of
the cereals of Manitoba and tlie valley
of the Saskatchewan. As regards emigration, it cannot be doubted that tne
right sort ef man will make his way.
The agriculturalist will there be under
the protection of the British flag, and
his sons may become legislators for a
mighty British American i Empire,
established between the old Maritime
Provinces and. Vancouver, tho chief
factor being the Canadian Pacific Railway.
For some time the House of the
collective wisdom of British Columbia
was so evenly divided that the Government had to rely upon the casting vote
of Mr. Speaker. -lb those circumstances, the absence of a simile henchman would imperil the very existence
of the Ministry. It so happened that
one of these wns the victim of a human
frailty which rendered it necessary to
place him in charge of a faithful keeper
who could be relied upon te produce
him in tho House at a division and, if
neud be, hold up hisahand-for- him!
The Superintendent of the Provincial
Police was appointed his keeper, with
instructions never to allow the M.P.P.
out of his sight night or.day. And so
faithfully did this patent '"whip" discharge his functions that for a whole
week he followed the frail M.P.P. like
a shadow, eating with him and sleeping at the door of his bed-room. This
is yet another phase in responsible
government. Mr. Walkem should
take out a patent.
To bk Hanged.—In the case of Dr.
Lamsnn, of London, for the murder
of his brother-in-law, the jury rendered a verdict of guilty. Several of
the jurymen were moved to tears.
When the verdict was pronounced Dr.
Lamsou clasped his hands together
aud seemed for a moment in despair;
but he quickly recovered his solf-pos-
session, and, foLdiii-** his arms, in a
clear voice and with eyas iipliftud,
slowly and deliberately said: ''I pro-
test my jnirttflce before. God I" When
Justice Hawkins had concluded pass-
ing the sentence Dr. Lainaon, half
throwing himself back into the arms
of the warden, wy almost lifted from
the dock.
An Incident.—During last week
one of the M. P. P.'s so far forgot his
position as tn hawk around Victoria a
petition tt. the Legislature, of wtrjioh he
u himself sn illustrious niembetv^umsi*
closing lii'iior saloons on Sunday.
Overcome with the weight of t.he.<jg-
naturea to the petition, the weary lit.
P. P. was found lying asleep by the
wayside. He was taken hoi n* and
put to. bed, but he had not been long
there when Wiilttoin's patent "whip"
came rushing in, hurriedly drowsed .the
insensible member, placed hiin in a
waiting "trap" and produced hiin in
the House jut' in time to save the
Government on a division t
Rich and Bare.
The public already know that the
ladies of Holy Trinity congregation
have for some time been preparing a
collection of fancy work which is to be
sold oa the 11th and 12th prox., for
tbe benefit of the Mission Fund of the
Diocese of New Westminster. It was
the writer's privilege the other day to'
examine the greater portion of the collection, and we must be permitted to
congratulate these ladies upon having
produced such a variety,of really beautiful aud useful articles, many of which
are quite unique. It is no mere figure
of speech to say that the collection
ranges "from a.needle to an.elephant."
It comprises contributions from friends
in England, amongst which are specimens of hand-painting upon satin and
other delicate fabrics, perfectly lovely,
and rare articles of cunning work of
India. Of the local handicraft we shall
not speak..particularly here; suffice, it
to say that there are many articles
amongst the home-made which have
no need tu shrink from a comparison
with those from afar. We feel confident that when theso various contributions of art and skill shall have been
arranged in the sale room tbe tout ensemble will surprise the public.

Through she Rockies.
Chicago, March 28.
The Times of''Winnipeg, Manitoba,
says that, acting on the request of the
Canadian Pacific Railroad Co.,, the
Dominion Government will apply to
Parliament for power to change the
route of line through the Ruckles,
which net provides that it shall be by
the Yellowhcad Pass. It-is probable the
power will be given tu.the Governor-
General iu Council to decide the
route.
The company has selected 'Kicking
Horse as best of pusses. It is expected the Missouri will open early and
the aurvey party to bo sent from Winnipeg for. work on the Rockies bo .dispatched not later than the middle of
March. Bismarck can be reached in
about 48 hours from Winnipeg. Then

A.Rocky Mountain Wonder.—The
great canyon of Smith ftiver, though
comparatively unknown', is one of the
most wonderful in all tho Rocky
Mountains, It is thirty miles in length
and is inaccessible to a horseman for
a distance of twenty miles. The mountains through whleh'ifcopens Its nofrow
winding way are very flprupt and impenetrable. The path of the stream
is in most places narrow and dashes to
and fro between the perpendicular
cliffs aud some wlio have tried to trace
their way through had to retrace their
steps and give it up as a bad job. In
this dark defile are to be found tbo
most stupendous precipices in all the
land. In one of these great walls,
one hundred feet above the stream,
is an opening to what is supposed to
be au immense subterranean cavern.
At the entrance stands the hermit of
these wilds, .'gray with frost of many

sentinel watch at the gate of his palatial balls since the ''morning stars

Uit week Mr. Bennett, M. P. P.
for Yale District, placed the following
important resolution on the notice
pa*»r ef the House.—
Whereat it cannot lie expected that
the Dominion Government should
station a judge of ..tlm Supreme Court
in every part of thia province; and
whereas it would answer the ends of
justice if a judge nf a court of more
humble jurisdiction "ere stationed at
the following named places, viz., at
the city of New Westminster For the
electoral district of Now Westminster
and New Westminster .city and tbe
Hope juid Yale polling division of the
electoral district of Yale. At the oity
nf Nanaimo for the electoral district
of Nanaimo and Comox. At Kamloops
for the electoral district of Yale excepting the foregoing divisions nf Hope
and Yale. ' At Clinton or 'Williams
Lake for the. electoral district of
Lillooet and the Williams Lake polling
division of the electoral division of
Cariboo. At, Stanley or Richfield for
the electoral district of Cariboo excepting the Williams Lake pulling divisions; and whereas the County Court
Acts are still in full force, but no
judges appointed tn the County Courts;
Therefore be it resolved, that Hia Excellency the i Governor General be
rtnuested by this House to appoint a
judgo of the County Court for each of
the districts above named, e-.ch.to rc-
sido and administer justice witUin the
district to which he shall have' been
appointed; and be'11'resolved, that it
is expedient that the Legislature of

court with civil and criminal jurisdiction to the same extent now held

As for Aglionby, tlio interview of
this morning had left upon his mind
too a deeper impression than he was
himself fully aware of. He had been
rough and abrupt tu his grandfather,
had eut snprt his advances, and steadily
refused Bu half ungracious overturn;
but he had looked the old man in the
Imi, and had not disliked hi. countenance. He had seen something there
whieh he felt te bo in harmony with
certain curds in his own nature. He
had 'said that if thoy were much together he would be certain to thwart
his elder every day, but ou reflection,
he felt less certain on that point. He
fancied he could have been ao far in
sympathy with his grandfather aa to
hare put. up with a good deal at hia
hands. Then there rushed over hia
mind the unchanged, monotonous
dreariness of his own prospects. He
bed deeerfted with grim humor how
the devil was wont' tn come and place
himself at hia elbow, but now the
humorous part of it had somehow disappeared, and only the blackness and
ugliness ef the vision remained.
He tried to pooh-pooh it; to consider
It a mere episode, and have done with
it. He toek up the newspaper containing the leading article upon his own
letter,'and read it through. And he
repeated to himself, What does it matter IT will all be Ihe same a hundred
years hence.
John Aglionby, going down the
stairs of the warehouse, and out at the
principal 'door, found himself in the
roar of the crowded street and sums
ten minutes walk from his hotel.   He
fiaused a short timo, and looked blank-
y around him, like one in a dream;
then took his way to the hotel, where
he knew that his grandni.ee would be
waiting for him, prepared to start on
their homeward journey. On entering
the hall of the hotel he saw their luggage awaiting thein, and proceeding
into the coffee-room he found his niece,
Judith Coniabreunh, sitting on a sofa,
reading the morning paper. She looked
up aa ho came in, and rose.
"I tJaoTiiht you were going to be
late, uncle, the remarked with a slight
smile, aa she began to draw on her
gloves. "You look heated," she added
considerately, "and tired. I hop. you
have not been overdoing yours.1).".
"What should I have been overdoing
myself with 1" he grumbled. "Hero
waiter}. Ving me my bill, and call me
a cab,. There's a stand outside there,
I pmoelve,!*;
The bill was soon settled, and the
eib soon called. As they drovo to the
station Judith glanced more than once
in an enquiring manner, at her great-
uncle, whose whole aspect and demeanor had Undergone a subtle change
since he had left the hotel armed with
an introduction to view the premises
of 'Messrs. Jeukinson and Sharp. It
was' true, that since the meeting on
Saturday afternoon, she had noticed
an absence in his demeanor more than
once, but she had put its cause down
te the memories called up in his mind
of tjie days of his youth, of those dsys
when he had been heart and soul an
enthusiast for the cause iu which the
great Irkford politicians had won their
spurs. This morning his abstraction
waa more marked than it yet had been.
It amounted to a fixed, brooding gaze
before him. Perhaps, she thought, he
had met with some old friend of his
early days, and was conning over past
scenes and past events She did not
speak to him nor question him a. to
his absence of manner, but she «»
that all he said and did was dono and
said in an almost mechanioal way, until
they were seated ill the train, and it
rolled" elo#ly forward toward "York-
ahiro and the North."
Even then: he had nothing to say,
but sat gazing forth upon the uninviting proswet which, surrounded them
for a long time aftor leaving Irkford—
endless dirty, suburbs, vast manufac-,
tories, great sheds where machinery
wu made; these followed in their turn
by still mure depreaaing-looking localities, half town, half a dismal mockery
of the country, where the trees in the
beginning of October wero already
leafless, and hod been so for the lost
three weeks. . It all looked very dingy
and half hearted, and so the old man
seemed to think, for ho suddenly heaved a great sigh and aaid!
"ItVa''go-ahead place, this, and I
notice that go-ahead places are generally dirty. My throat feels dry for want
nf a draught of the fresh air at Scar
Foot."
"Yea; I don't think a town life
would suit you, unele; for my part, I
think I should suffooale, if I had to
live In a street."
He made no answer, but leaned his
head back, and clossd liis eyes. With
what was hit mind busied, alio wondered, that he should have that pinched, pained look, that sudden appearance of age, and loss of heartiness and
rigor?
Whatever hia secret thoughts might
be, lut did not confide them to her, but
maintained his gravity and taciturnity
during the whole journey, which, by
the railway lasted about' three hours.
Judith Goniabrough preaently ceaaod
te study him; she knew him too well
to attempt to talk with him when he
was in that mood, and .he leaned back
in her seat, and watched the landscape
aa it grew ever wilder and more beautiful, while the fair and fertile lowlands were left behind, and suddenly
she saw, grimly appearing above a
high green hilt, the round blue head
of some great mountain whose height
surpassed that of all the others near.
It was Penygent, and from that she
knew that their railway journey would
not laat much longer.
The train had borne them through
all that wild and beautiful district of
Craven, and. Penygent had been loft
far behlfid.'wheh -they drew up at a
little wayside junction, and got out, lo
Sur.ua the rest nf their journey in a
og-cart, Their train had been a slow
one, but it had puffed them deliberately into fairyland.
Judith, seated beside her uncle, and
with thtir *n*ilMuggage, and the servant ma* behlad, enjoyed the pleaaure,
as - ah* tlw«M4H, of moving through
that b»n#4(Tdfc   Each village and
liiii-ilNlllIWl.l"* *»•*'»
nor* )Mid"moi*Mrong|jr confirm-
i thej *At»i-*, mrt'tlrey wen
rapidly approaching the end of the
world.
It was a soft, mellow October afternoon—the sky of that tempered chastened blue; the sun's beams of that
fdeasant, far from fervid warmth, p.cu-
iar to this most delicious aeaaon of
the year; and the "feel" ef the air in
those limestone regions of romance,
how like it is to some delicate wiue of
which one may drink to repletion,
without any after sensation but one of
pleasure! As they left the little wayside station, and tha good mare stretched her long legs over the white road,
the faces, both of old msu and young
woman, lighted up and and took a
brighter glow. On every side of them
as they bowled along, with an occasional slower motion u they breasted
some hill, were great green and gray
foils, seme of thein with bleak brown
summits showing where the peat-bogs
lay, and where the peat was deep;
others crowned hy some bleak escarpment of bare gray limoatone, grimly
contrasting with the verdant green of
tho lower slopes and the fertile valleys
and fat pastures beside the river, the
Yore. If one stood quite still, one
could hear the murmur of rushing
waters, coming, one knew not whence;
but one could guess that the pure
spring, of those streams and cascades
were concealed somewhere amongst the
bsre folds of the hills, or were leaping
down their beds deep in tha recesses
of the plentiful woods which were visible on every aide, and of which the
foliage was, not liko that of Irkford—
. vanished thing; but a ruddy and a
golden glory, impossible to surpass.
At first they saw the river, now many
miles away from its dark and elevated
source in tho bleak side of Great Shun-
nor Fell, gleaming through grassy
meads in a bed which it filled to the
brim; whilo th. cattle drank from it,
and the reeds bent and swayed in its
current,
They had driven for some distance
before either of them spoko. The longed-for draught of freali air they had at
last, and an uneasy weight was removed from Judith's mind at least.
I'll put you down at your mother's
door," said *Mr. Aglionby, "and your
luggage with you, and I shall get home
myself long before it's dark."
"Oh, thank you, uncle. But won't
you come in and take tea with us ?"
"No, I'll go on to Scar Foot at
once," he aaid decidedly.
Wouldn't you like Delphine, or
Rlioda to go with you for a day or
two f
"No, I want no one," he answsred,
with a sudden distrustful look sideways from under bis bushy eyebrowa,
which look she did not remark, being
fully engaged in glancing joyfully
around at the beautiful hills, and the
beloved woods, and along the up-and-
down limestone road, which would
lead at last to the cobble-stoned street
of Yoresett, where her home was.
Proa.ntly they drove up the snid
street, into the quaint, sloping, open
space which formed the market-place
at Yoresett. In the middle was the
ancient stone mnrkot-cross, around
which at the half-yearly "liirings" the
oountryinen and wenches stood to be
hired as farm laborers or servants-
Facing the merket-orosa on the left
hand of the aquAro, stood a splendid
old stone house—a mansion in size,
solidly built, large, commodious, and
handsome; and with a date over the
door of 1558, showing that it had been
built in the first year of the reign of
good Queen Boas. It roao straight out
of the street, its gardens lying behind,
and it was called Yoreaett House. It
was the property of Mrs Conisbroiigh,
and the residence nf herself and her
daughters. Over the way there were
houses and shops, small village shops,
full of the inarveloualy useleaa articles
only to be found in such shops, and
high.r up, the winding, roughly paved
street narrowed, first up a hill, and
then down one, nnd consisted of an
inn or two, and a shop or two, and the
post-office, and many odd-looking
houses, -inhabited by what the denizens of the busy world would doubtless have thought odd-looking people,
tt was altogether as old-world, quiet,
quaint a place, as could well be imagined.
The dog-cart was pulled up before
tho door of the old stone house, and
before Judith could get down, the said
door was quickly opened, end in the
frame made by this process appeared
a young, fresh, handsome face, with
dark, daro devil eyes, whilo a young
voice, high but not shrill, cried:
"I'm glad to see you, Judithl I
thought it must be you. Be quick in,
and tell us all the news. The slippers
are kept in the same place yet, ao you
needn't aak that. How do you do,
uncle? Cc.me, Judith, we want the
news, the news, the news, I say, and
weahall turn yeu out of doors if you
haven't got any."
Judith's box was conveyed into the
houso by a servant paid; she shook
hands with hor' uncle, exchanged some
parting words with him, and then she
pulled into the house, the door was
shot, and Mr. Aglionby drove off down
tho street to take another road to Scar
Foot.
Judith, her arm still grasped by her
sister, entered the roomy, stone-paved
hall of the old houie whish was her
home, and paused there, as if not quite*
sure which way she meant to take;
whether one that should lead into one
of the numerous parlors and sitting-
rooms on the ground floor, or whether
toward the staircase. Her course wu
decided for her. The young lady who
had appeared at the door, while the
remainder of it and her attire wore
carefully concealed behind the said
door—now stood, or rather danced,
revealed as a tall, healthy-looking
damsel of fifteen or sixteen, still in
short, frocks, and with a large, coarse
kitchen apron tied around her. She
wound it into a kind of rope and
danced lightly and • bewilderingly
around her elder.
"No, you are not going up stairs,"
she Said decidedly. "Ynu nre coming
into the parlor, to enjoy a cup of tea,
and above all, to tell us the news. So
don't attempt to shirk it."
"Suppose I have no news?" suggested Judith, moving with serene dignity
toward a door on the left hand of the
hall.
