Agricultural Exhibition;.
The Obilliwlmok Agricultural exhibition is to bo held on the 4th of
next month, and tho exhibition of
the British Columbia Agricultural
Society will be held in tliis city on
tho 10th, 11th and 12th. In some
respects these exhibitions may fall
below the average of agricultural
shows in this province The season
has been one of exceptional severity
for most agriculturists. Wo believe
it is admitted by the oldest inhabitant-that so dry a summer bus never
beforo been known in British Columbia. Notwithstanding these adverse
ciroumstances, however, wo moy
look forward to the exhibition with
full confidence that it will be worthy
of our patronage and encouragement.
The agricultural products of this
country have often amazed visitors
unaccustomed to our climate and
soil. We believe there is no country on the face of tlio earth whose
lands nro moro productive under
favorable circumstances. It may bo
taken for granted, therefore, tlmt
the coining show will produce a collection of exhibits which will do no
discredit to out resources. The time
to elapse hefore the date of the exhibition is not long, nnd it would be
just as woll for intending exhibitors
to be making preparations for tha
event. Tho samples of agricultural
products should be well chosen. People sometimes run away with the
notion that any article is iit for n
prize if it is only big enough. This
is a mistake. As a general. rnlo
overgrown articles tire wanting in
the qualities whicli should command
a premium. It is quality, not quantity, that determines the merit, It
is a common error for people to decline entering for exhibition because
they may miss taking a lirst prize.
Agricultural shows were never intended to be money-making institutions. Their primary object is to
stimulate a wholesome rivalry for
excellence, and this can best bo accomplished by a comparison of pro-
duets. Tho man who takes no prizes
nt all, if he learn tho secret of successful farming, will receive moro
benefit than he who takes the largest number. Peoplo who have anything worth showing at alt should
not hesitate to bring it. Every
sample, if of good quality, adds to
the attractiveness and success of the
exhibition. These gatherings of agriculturists should be mado occasions
for the most friendly intetcourse and
exchange of opinions. In this social
world a man cannot uflbrd to be independent, und if we nro able to
instruct our neighbors in the arts of
success we shall be contributing materially to tho advancement of the
public good, Let the farmers enter
into, each other's confidences; let
them discuss freely the results of
their experience; und each one may
return to his farm with new ideas
which may be the germs of future
achievements, Opportunities will
doubtless be afforded not only for
the exchange of ideas, but of products, Some persons may wish to
havo their stock improved: here
thoy may purchase the means of improving it. Somo may desire a different quality of seed: here they
may meet a man anxious for the
same thing, and an exchange may
be effected with mutual advantage
and satisfaction, It is probable that
the exhibit of agricultural implements and machines will bring out
the best that can be procured in the
province, Farmers will have an
opportunity of examining these implements collectively, comparing
their merits, and deciding'Upon what
thoy need aud what they will purchase. Opportunities will nndoubt
edly ho afibrded for tbe disposal of
stock and produce of till kinds. Mr,
Trapp, of this city, hns for some
time been advertising the fact that
ho will hold a scries of auction sales
during the exhibition. Persons who
have anything to dispose of wilt find
this a most favorable opportunity,
for the city will be full of people,
and there will bo no lack of buyers.
Nothing that comes to the show need
bo taken awny again if its owner
~ feels disposed to sell. Wo hopo
these facts will be kept in mind, and
thnt everyone will do what ho can
to make the exhibition a magnificent
success,
The British Columbian.

lhe "Settlement" Meeting.
The publio meeting held in the
Hyack Hall laat Saturday night was
ostensibly to ascertain what portion
oi the $750,000 federal bonus would
go to the mainland.   Any person at
all conversant   with   the   subject
should have known that the meeting
would he absolutely barren of result
if it were limited  to this object.
The terms of settlement have been
freely published and discussed since
they ware first  submitted to the
house, and it is difficult to suppose
that the promoters of the meeting
were not fully aware that no part of
the federal bonus could be applied to
any other object than that for which
it had been specifically granted by
the Dominion.   But it very soon became apparent that the promoters of
the meeting had other designs than
those which lay legitimately beneath
the   public   announcement.     Mr.
Bole's cross-questioning of Mr. Orr,
and his reckless attacks upon the
government and the provincial secretary revealed tbe true inwardness of
the plan,   It was undoubtedly intended that a general assault should
be made upon the government's polioy for the purpose of making political capital against them and in favor
of Mr. Bole, who professed a profound desire to sacrifice himself upon the altar of his country.   Mr.
Bole ia   obviously endeavoring to
pave the way for the advancement of
his own political designs.   No one
will dispute his right, but he can
hardly be congratulated upon the result.   Political honors are worthy
of a noble ambition if the object
aimed at and tho means employed
are honorable.   We cannot pretend
to a knowledge of Mr. Bole's ultimate object, but we must protest
against   the employment of   such
means as he made use of on Saturday night   His assertion that the
provincial secretary had labored for
the removal of the capital to -Victoria   struck   every   person   with
amazement, for it is well known that
his whole influence was thrown a-
gainst that unfair proceeding.   The
rest of Mr. Bole's speech consisted
mainly of   an arraignment of the
polioy of the late Walkem government   He pointed out how unfairly
the mainland had been treated in the
matter of expenditure, and asserted
that in the present house the island
had a majority of votes.   Mr. Bole
ahould have stated, as  an honest
politician, that the Walkem government, which he supported, were responsible for these deplorable facts.
He could not deny that the present
government have shown a disposi.
tion to deal fairly with the mainland
inasmuch aa they have given us more
than twice as much for publio works.
Nor could he charge them with depriving ns of fair representation in
the house.   When the Walkem administration held office the question
of additional representation for the
mainland was made a distinct issue,
and the claims of the mainland were
opposed by that government and de
tested.   Mr. Bole stated the facts,
but Bought to place the responsibility
upon the present government instead
of their predecessors.   In thia he
was neither honest nor successful.
The members of the present government stand pledged to a fair readjustment of the representation, and
when the proper time comes we believe their pledges will be redeemed.
If not, Mr. Bole will have ground
upon which to impeach them, and in
doing so he may count upon finding
the Columbus at  his back.   No
person will dispute his statements
respecting the condition of the mainland roads, except that they were
somewhat highly colored.  But these
■titementa recoil directly upon the
heads ef the late administration, although Mr. Bole did not seem to
perceive how completely he was giving tway hit own political friends.
Bnt Mr. Bole found two grievances
from the responsibility of which the
present government could not wholly
escape.   One was the Kootenay bill,
which  he   greatly misrepresented,
and the other was the refusal of a
charter   of   incorporation to Port
Moody.   Tbe Kootenay bill may or
may not be bad.   If it is bad Mr.
Bole ahould have pointed out in fairness (hat it received the active support of tht premier and provincial
atoretary of   tbe late government
That faot dissipates all the political
capital Mr. Bole could make out of
tha measure for hia own crowd, The
Fort Moody charter Is a matter for
whioh the present government Is undoubtedly naponaible.   We have already given it aa our opinion that
tha government acted wisely in it-
fulng it   Wa  have pointed out
tliat th* oondttiona ware not suoh aa K5mi
to comply with the law, and tbat the
incorporation of the two lots named
would be absurd. The act requires
a petition for incorporation to be
signed by not less than 30 male residents of 21 years of age, who are
"freeholders, householders, free miners, pre-emptors, or leaseholders."
The petition from Port Moody contained the names of only 18 persons
who were eligible under the aot But
Mr. Bole says the enumerator made
the count on Dominion Day (July
lst), when the people of Port Moody
wero absent From Mr. Hughes,
the government agent at this city,
we learn the following facts: The
letter asking for an enumeration is
dated July 10th. Mr. Hughes went
to Port Moody on the afternoon of
the 12th and gave instructions for
the enumeration. It was probably
made on the 13th, although tho date
is not certain. It is absolutely certain, however, that it was made
some time between the 12th and
17th, because on the 17th Mr.
Hughes reported the result to the
government. Now, this is really
the only thing Mr, Bole succeeded
in fastening upon the present government, and the facts we have stated show how absolutely groundless
were his charges. Mr. Bole next
applied himself to a wholesale attack
upon the press of the province. According to his notion there is not an
independent newspaper in British
Columbia except the Guardian I and
he had to confess that it was not a
very powerful champion. We leave
our contemporaries to defend themselves, if they consider it worth
while to do so, and remark that in
declaring the Columbian to be the
personal organ of- the provincial secretary Mr. Bole could hardly have
been sincere. The Columbian has
repeatedly declared its absolute independence of the provincial secretary
and all other persons whomsoever,
and Mr. Bole could not liuvu been
ignorant of that declaration. Eeith-
er the Columbian has stated a falsehood or Mr. Bole has forgotten tho
truth. If Mr. Bole's notion of an
independent press coincides with his
notion of independent criticism as
exhibited by his speech at the meeting, we are afraid we shall never be
flattered by his compliments. It is
quite evident that opposition to the
present government, with him,
means independence. We have not
so learned .the duties of a journalist,
and our experience has led to the
conclusion that such men as Mr.
Bole are tho very sort to destroy, if
they havo the power, every vestige
of independence wherever it might
interfere with the accomplishment of
their own selfish ends, Tbe meeting
had the effect, however, of eliciting
a clear and comprehensive statement
of the circumstances and results of
the settlement bill, nnd we are sure
the provinoial secretary's speech will
be read with interest and satisfaction
everywhere on the mainland.

acres of land, but thuy wore to build

The voting nt Maple Ridgo lost Saturday resulted as follows: Votes in
favor of the $1,000 being handed over
to the council, 22; in favor of the
$1,000 being spent on the roud laid
out by Mr. Turner, 26; giving 4 majority in favor of tho Turner read. The
majority is very small, and shows that
the people of Maple Ridgo aro vory
much divided upon this question; but
we presume the only course open to
tho government is to carry out the
wishes of the majority as represented
by the vote.

THE $750,000 MEETING.
Important Hpcccli by (He Provincial Secretary.
THE GOVERNMENT AND THE PRESS SAT UPON.
According to announcement a public
mooting was held in tho Hyack Hall
last Saturday night to learn what portion of the 3750,000 ullcrod by tho
Dominion government as a bonus to
tho Nanaimo railway would bo spent
on the mainland. His Worship the
Mayoc took tho chair shortly beforo 8
o'cloek, and called tho meeting to ordor. Mr. W, D. Ferris was chosen
secretary. After somo delay Mr. J. C.
Armstrong said tho mooting wanted to
hear what our representatives had to
say about tho $750,000. Tho-Hon.
Provincial Secretary was called upon,
but said ho would liko first to hoar
from those who called the mooting.
At present he could tut tell what thoy
wanted, If tho promoters of tho meeting would stato the caso he would be
happy to make any explanations ho
could. Mr. Bolo said tho mooting had
been called for the purpose of hearing
explanations respecting the $750,000.
If tho provincial secretary *Tind tho
other members woro afraid to givo
these explanations they had better say
so.
Mr. Jas. On', M. P. P., was called
upon and said ho had very little to ox-
plain. He had been invited to state
what portion of tho $750,000 given by
tho fedoral government was to go to
the mainland. His answer was none.
In the tonus of agreement that $750,-
000 was nowhere mentioned, nnd it
had not been offered ns compensation
for delays at all. It would simply be
handed ovor by the Dominion government to the contractor for tho island
railway. Tho lands handed ovor on
tho island were a bonus to the island
railway, and tho Dominion had agreed
to supplement tliat bonus by a cash
grant of $750,000. In consideration
of the building of the island railway,
it had beon agreed by the provincial
govornment that tho money recoived
on account of tho dry-dock should be
spent entirely nn tho mainland in internal improvements. It was considered by tho government and thoir
supporters that tho settlement ns
agreed upon would finally dispose of
all the misunderstandings and bickerings between the two governments,
aud ho believed it was tho best settlement that could have boon mado. It
would bo seon by the estimates that in
anticipation of tho recoipt of that money a considorablo inorenso had boen
made in appropriations for . tlio main-
laud. The lands givon away in the
Peaco rivor district were not in return
for tho railway, but to mako up for
shortage aud worthless lands in the
mainland belt. Ho had no knowledge
of a mooting of mainland representatives beipg hold in Victoria with re*
ference to this question.
Mr. W. J. Armstrong, M. P. P.,
said ho waB roally astonished to hear
Mr. Orr sny ho did not kno»r of a
meeting of mainlanders on this question. Sueh a meeting was held, nnd
ho was perfectly certain Mr. Orr was
present. Ho had always taken a deop
interest in tho mainland, and when
tho terms of settlement wore being
discussed ho hnd asked what the mainland wns to got as an offset for tho
$750,000 obtained for the island railway. Tho supporters of the govornment said they had a plo'dgo that tho
$250,000 dock money would be spent
on tho mainland, But whon the estimates came down thoy were astonished
to Iind that they did not contain this
money, A meeting of tho mainland
members was called, but Messrs. Rob-
ion and Davie wero not present, and
Mr. Mara thought it would bo best not
to go on without a full meeting. So
tho mainland had to be satisfied with
what it got, Ue contended that tho
$750,000 was given as a compensation
for delays, and rond a clause in tho
agreement whioh stated that this settlement should debar us from any compensation for delays, In tho tonus of
union it had boen stipulated that wo
woro to give certain lands towards tho
construction of tho C. P. R. But tho
Dominion government claimed there
Orr's statements,' "and, gentlemen,
you may depend on all I say as absolutely true!"
Hon. Jno. Robson (provincial secretary) Baid  it appeared from  tho
speech  of Mr.   Armstrong that the
object of some of the promoters of
this meeting was to make a genoral
attack upon .the policy of tho government.   Tho last speaker had gono over
tho ground as far back aa 1875,   At
that  time  Mr.   Mackenzie was premier of Canada, and his government
certainly showed a disposition to obtain a friendly settlement with British
Columbia.   But all the proposals mado
by Canada were repelled by tho provincial govornment.    Edgar's proposition was to build the island railway,
but that was defeated in the senate.
Then the federal govornment proposed
to nay a lump sum of $750,000 to be
applied as the province saw fit.   But
whilo it is true the Mackenzie government  were prepared in 1875 to pay
$750,000 as compensation for delays,
that condition of affairs did not no at
oxist.    The government of Mr. Walkem  assumed a hostile attitude and
entered into a fight with Canada, the
results  of   which overy ono knows.
Canada   became  hostile towards us,
and in 1881 Sir John Macdonald declared to our "missionary," DeCosmos,
that  the  fedoral  government would
never pay ono cent as compensation to
this country.   But us Canada had led
British Columbia to expect that the
island   railway  would  bo built, the
government woro willing to pay $750,-
000 towards scouring the accomplishment of  that work.   This $750,000
had novor been offered since 1875 except as a bonus to the island railway.
When tho prosont govornment camo
into ofiiee they found that, as a result
of  "fighting Canada," the condition
of British Columbia was growing worse
uud worao.    Every year tho attitude
of  Canada   wns becoming more nnd
more   hostile, and. this condition of
things was seriously injuring tho province.   Thu lunds in the railway bolt
wore kopt locked up, and the Dominion government refused to budge unless  all  the differences botween tho
two  governments wero at the sumo
timo adjusted.    Tho provincial government went to work at onco to Be-
curo a, settlement, believing that the
fight for compensation was worse than
hopeless.    The throe principal items
iu the settlement bill were: Tho building of the island railway, the opening
of tho  railway  lauds  to settlement
without delay, at tho nominal price of
a dollar an acre, nnd the completion
of tho dry-dock by tho Dominion government and repayment to tho provinco of overy dollar oxpended thereon.
As the timo was short this settlement
was necessarily hurried; and unfortunately, iu consequence of  delays in
communication,   aud   an, imperfect
knowledge of the federal government's
will, some words wero imported into
the   bill  whicli raised objections at
Ottawa.    Negotiations followed, and
Sir Aloxandor Campbell camo to this
country ns a delegate from the federal
government   commissioned  to  mako
final arrangements, whioh had been
done.    Public   opinion   throughout
tho  island nud  mainland  was vory
generally  favorable  to tho terms of
settlement as a fair compromise between the two governments.     This
settlement resulted in tho Dominion
ugrooinp* to give $750,000 towards securing tho construction of tho island
railway; to take over tho dry-dock,
complete und maintain it, nnd recoup
tho provinco for nll thnt had boen expended on it; aud to throw open tho
railway lands without any delay at a
nominal price.   The province concedes
3,000,000 acres of land at Peaco rivor
—not  on account of the island railway, bnt in older to keep faith witli
respect to the C. P. R, agreement.
In tho railway belt there was a shortage of about -1,000,000 aeros.    The
Dominion asked tho Walkem government to give good lands iu lieu of tho
lands unfit for use in tlio railway belt.
Tho Walkem government replied that
so  Boon as thoy found railway construction being vigorously pushed in
British Columbia they would givo tho
proposition a favorablo consideration.
Tho Dominion took tliat to mean that
thoso lands would be grantod whon
railway construction was pushed witli
vigor, and  tho  present government
folt bound in fairness to recognise tho
fedoral'claim.    Thuy offered 1,000,-
000 acres for shortage and 1,000,000
for tho 0,000,000 acres of rook  and
mountain.    Tho Dominion stood out
for 3,000,000.    Wo said, if you will
tako land at Peaco river wo will givo
tho 3,000,000.     This was accepted.
Tlio mainland members generally wore
of opinion that it was in tho interest
of the province to make this arrangement.     By placing thoso 3,000,000
aeros of Poace river lands iu tho hands
of the Dominion, ho contended, we
wore putting it whoro it would boootno
revei i lie-producing sooner than if wo
retained it.   This land still remained
a part of British Columbia, and subject to provincial taxes;    It was beyond the Rocky mountains,, inaccessible from this coast, and oould n t bo
administered by thia provinco without great inconvenience nnd oxpenso.
With respect to tho $750,000 bonus ho
might state what had not yot boon
stated in public: When Sir Alexander
Campbell waa in Victoria tho government received another offer to build,
tho  island  railway from a company
who would build it without a cash
bonus if thoy could got tho 3,000,000
noros of land at Peaco rivor.    Tho
govornment Boomed disposed to entertain this offer if thoy could got possession of tho 9760,000 for tho use of
tho province.    The proposal was sub
mitted to Sir Alexander.     He said he
had no wish to stand in tho way of
any botter bargain, but  they must
understand distinctly that in that case
none of tho $750,000 would como to
the province;  for tho Dominion government could not usk parliament to
voto any bonus, except to jsecuro the
construction   of  a railway to which
they felt the faith of Canada had been
in a manner pledged.   This declaration, taken with others, showed how
hopeless it would be to expect any
money payment. to this province on
account of delays in railway construction.   Tho government in view of this
considered' tho first offer better, a pre-
limnary  contract was signed by Sir
Alexander and Mr. Dunsmuir for the
construction of tho railway, and Sir
Alexander had also come to an agreement with the government confirming
tho other mutters in tlio settlement.
But   it   was asked,   What benefit
would this bo to tho mainland?   It
would  benefit the  mainland in the
only way possible under tho circumstances.    The Dominion government
had consented to take ovor the dry-
dock and repay the provinco every
farthing that had been expended upon
it.    Thut expenditure  amounted to
about $340,000, and it was folt that
this was the only ground upon which
tho mainland could bo compensated.
Tho government hud decided, voluntarily uud without any outside pressure
whatever, tliat the dock money should
go to the mainland, in addition to her
fair proportion of tho ordinary revenue.   It had been asked, What guarantee havo wo that this money will bo
exponded  ou tho   mainland?    Thia
guarantee, that the.faith of the government has boon  so pledged, and
thoy could not break such a pledge
without,   politically,  ' making  thoir
necks.    But tho dock money would
nnt bo all expended this year, or next.
It was proposed, to expend it aa the
interests of the country required, und
the numbers for tho mainland would
take good caro that it Bhould all be
expended on the mainland.   Ho was
glad to see some of hie constituents
present  from  the  district, - and he
would ask if any of the mainland districts hud fault to find with the policy
laid down by the government.   As a
rule tho mainland hnd received just
about one half tho revenuo available
for roads and bridges, but this year it
got $08,000, whereas the island got
$40,000.   He would ask if that was
not a pretty fair commencement.   But
the whole appropriations of this yoar
woro not being expended.   Inconsequence of the delays whioh interfered
with the final consummation of tho
Settlement they found that tlie full
appropriations would not bo available
for this season.    They had decided,
therefore, to expend about one half
and carry over the other half till noxt
spring, when it would bo expended at
a moro favorablo time of tho yoar,
between seed timo und harvest, when
tho  farmers would be in a position
thomsolvos to tako much of the work.
He had no doubt Mr., Armstrong and
others would say, "Oh, but if we had
boon in power wo would have made a
magnificent bargain;  wo would have
got §2,000,000 instead of $750,000."
Well, thoso gentlemen had boon "fighting Canada' sinco 1873, and how did
thoy come out?—the most miserably
defeated men that ovor wero seen, and
tho country came out of tho fight a
great deal worao olf than it went in.
He submitted thut thy government had
made a settlement in tho best interests of tho country.     They had made
an honorable peace.    It was a compromise in whieh both .parties had to
mako concessions; and they considered
it was muoh better to effect a settlement and take half a loaf than get uo
loaf  nt all.     Tho province would receive more real benefit than she could
expect from fighting Canada a hundred  years,     Somo  peoplo in New
Westminster hud complained of unfair
treatment from tho government.   Ho
did uot think suoh a complaint could
be made with reason.   They had given
$1000 to tho steam ferry, und ho behoved thoro were few who fully realized tho importance of this scheme.
Thoy had also given $1000 towards
tho erection of nn agricultural hall,
nnd the square whioh a few weeks ago
had presented such an unsightly appearance was'boing turned into a thing
of beuuty through tho services of tho
chaiugang.    Ho was glad to find that
by thoir votes to-day tho success of
theso two schemes had beon assured,
aided as thoy woro by the liberal contributions of tho other municipalities.
Somo poople predicted failure for the
exhibition because it was to bo held
on tho mainland.     Tlio government
had done all that could reasonably bo
oxpected of them towards making it a
success.    Ho thought the government
liad not neglected Uio interests of this
city, nnd they would continue to treat
it with fairness and liberality.    Ho
had been accused of deserting Now
Westminstor.      One man had ovon
said he should not have gone to livo at
Victoria.    Well, lio could  not vory
woll bo in both places at onco, and ns
a member of tho government it was
necessary for him to bo at the capital.
His  interests were all hero just as
much ns over they had been—Iub heart
was here, and when ho censed to stand
up for tho interests of this oity and
the mainland, then lot tho people cease
to support him.    Acts Bpeak louder
than words, and by his acts he hoped
to bo judged.   Tho govornment hud
boon uceuBed of giving away tho dry.
dock.   It wus on record that in 1878
tho then government and legislature
asked tho Imporial government to tako
tho dock as a freo gift, notwithstanding tho fnct thnt tno province hnd at
that timo spent nbout $200,000 on it.
Senator  Mclnnes  was then called
upon, but said he camo not to speak
but to hear the opinions of others.
Whon   this matter camo up in tho
houso of whieh ho was a member, it
would be his timo to speak,
Mr. W. N. Bole, in response to
several calls, Baid ho did not intend to
speak, but was always ready to answer
the call of the people. The provincial
secretary's argument amounted to
this: Canada had failed to carry out
hor engagements, but we could do no
better than . wo had done, because
Canada repudiated her just obligations.
He considered that governments as
well as individuals should be compelled
to carry out their agreements. It seemed always to come to pass that the
island got paid for damages duo tq the
mainland. This had always been the
case. Tlio worst day wo ever saw was
whon these two sections were united
an unholy alliance and tho capital
removed to Victoria, and ho believed
the provincial soorotary took an aotivo
part in that matter. That showed how
sincere his promises woro. He (the
provincial secretary) admitted that the
government accepted half a loaf, but
tho trouble was that tho island got the
half loaf and wo got nothing at all.
Wo wanted no bodb from tho government: wo wanted only our just rights,
Thore woro many reasons why we
should not accept the statements of
the provincial secretary. In th'o present house tho mainland was iu the
minority, and wo did nob receive our
fair share of the expenditure. There
was not a decent road leading to this
oity. The road to Port Moody was
Bhocking, and the Graiiiville rood was
littlo better. Last year thia city had
paid $4,000 into the treasury, and tho
district $14,000, and all wo received
was these two wretched roads. About
Viotoria there are 100 miles of avenues
built at tho public expense. The revenue of the island is $45,000 nnd of
the mainland $129,000, nnd although
we contributed about .three times as
muoh ob they, the greatest encouragement the provincial secretary could
give was that we might poiaibly get a
little more than half the expenditure.
In the estimates it was usual to specify
tho purpose of the appropriations, but
he noticed the enormous sum of $23,-
000 set down for sundries—- which
looked suspicious. For education the
appropriation was $59,000. Taking
out the expenses of a costly oduoationat
office nt Victoria, the island got $28,-
820 of the balance and the mainland
$21,000. Tho absence of roads retarded
tho settlement of the country. Ho
was informed that 150 persons had
come to tho immigration office looking
for land and had gone away out of the
country disgusted because thero were
no roads. This was a serious loss to
tlio country. As .an evidence, of the
friendliness of the govornment they
had refused to grunt a charter of incorporation for Port Moody, and did
unt even condescend to say. upon what
ground the refusal was made." Ho had
been informed that the man who went
out to count tho inhabitants went on
Dominion Day whon they were nenrly
till absent. In Kootenay they had
given away 750,000 acres of our best
land for the construction of 30 miles of
railway to connect Kootenay lake with
Columbia river so as to carry the trade
out of this country. Not satisfied with
this, thoy had mado a furthor grant of
00,000 acres to the same company for
the construction of n wagon road. But
whore is that road ? It is the bed upon
which the railway would be laid! One
of the wants of this country was an
independent press. The Colonist was
thoroughly sectional and Victorian in
its ideas, and it could not-be believed.
For years it had been filled with false
telegrams and teeming with falsehoods.
Whenever the truth did not suit its
purposo it employed falsehood. It had
always been the enemy of the mainland. The Standard was also thoroughly Victorian, and bo was the Post
Coming to the mainland wo havo tho
British Columbian which was merely
Mr. Robson's personal organ. Tho
Yale Sentinel was too much occupied
fighting Trutch and the railway contractors to think of anything eke.
Thero was nothing left but tho Guardian, and ho would like to soe an organ
of moro power. We must have our
rights. If we could not get thom, let
us dissolve tho unholy alliance. If we
are tu got the dock money, wo wanted
to have it paid into our hand. We
wanted no fair promises.
Hon. Mr, Robson said it would be
useless to nnswer the specoh just delivered, and reply to the statements
respecting the unfair way in which
the mainland had been treated in the
matter of roads and bridges, Mr. Bole
had impeached tho lute government,
and not without reason. These were
the vory grievances tho present govern
ment had been trying to remedy, and
thoy proposed that the 'interests and
claims of tho mainland.Bhould receive
thut consideration which had boen refused by the lato government. With
respect to Mr. Bole's' stAtemont that
ho (Mr. Robson) had aided in removing the capital, lie would only soy that
one of the greatest fights of hta life wns
in opposition to that act. and there
were many gentlemen present who
could substantiate that statement,
Mr. fMcLollan then nddrossed the
meeting, counselling a more friendly
sentiment towards the island, and referring to the magnitude of the O. P.
R. and tho rapidity with which it was
being constructed. Ho said he had
mot a surveyor from the Northern
Paoifio u few days ago at tho Mission,
nnd his party wero locating a line from
thnt place to connect with the American railways. It might happen that the
C, P. R. may havo a terminus nt Bellingham Bay as woll as at Port Moody,
If the records of the Innd oflico in
Washington Territory were examined
somo facts might be brought to light
which would surprise most of us.
Tho meeting wns largely attended,
orderly, and listened attentively to the
spooohes, Aftor a voto of thanks to
tho mayor, the meeting ndjourned at

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
"Ah, how can I hope that my Allan
ii still alive! and yet I wUl never believe he is dead, never, BiWjP I
we hia cold face and touch hu hfeleii
hand. Dolly and Josiah staid in D—
for two or three years, and then they
left. While Auntio lived we wen
comparatively comfortable, but things
hart ooue badly with us lately.   I
Eiid much to a clever physician in
dinburgh who hoped to cure Hennie,
though he has been worse-like since;
and bo, though I have worked and
work-id, we have gone near to starve,
Hennie and I." .
And then, overcome by her recital,
poor Lucy knelt down by her boy •
crib, and hiding her face on hu pillow wept long and bitterly.
#     #      *      *      *      *
That night I could not sloop, Luoy
Graham's sweet face and soft, plaintive voice haunted ine, while the sad
details of her story so filled my imagination, that I could not chaao the
painful images away, but lay brooding
over them long, restless hours.
"Truth is stranger than fiction,
muttered, as I turned for the fifteenth
time my well-warmed pillow,, and
toued the floating hair from my brow.
Who would have dreamed on looking
at that childish figure and meek young
face, that suoh agonies of doubt and
fear had been passed, such months of
brain-sick horrors, such years of more
than widowed loneliness? And yet
she can smile and play with her afflicted boy, spending on him auch wealth
of despairing love; clinging to him,
poor soul, as the one waif and Btraw
spared to hor out of her great heart-
wreck.
And as I lay and pondered a great
tenderness awoke in my heart for the
young mother and child. I felt it
impossible to go away and leave them
in their poverty; lomething must be
planned; and then a thought Sashed
across me, making me more wakeful
than ever, and it was not till I had
settled all the pros and cons of my
new scheme that I fairly resigned myself to sleep.
The next morning I secured an interesting willing listener in the old
window-seat; and Katie and Aunt
Margaret being summoned to the council, it was agreed that we should go
that evening toLuoy Graham to unfold
the nlan, to which Dudley had given
a well-pleased assent.
It was our last evoning but one at
the manse, and Dudley accompanied
us, partly, as he snid, to have a last
walk with Katie, and partly to get a
peep at "Nellie's new hobby," as he
irreverently termed Lucy. - Hennie
was alone as usual, and was sitting up
in his cot by the open window playing with his lady doll, the old stump
being all huddled up in a disgraceful
heap at the foot of the crib, with its
face to the wall.
"Oh, Hennie, Hennie, the new
friend cut out the old already! poor
Dolly in disgrace."
"She's naughty," Baid Hennie, in
his shrill little whisper, "she's jealous
of the new lady, and calls her names,
io I put hor in the corner." Then
eying Dudley suspiciously, "Who is
that man]"
"That is my brother, Hennie; the
good brother of whom I told you."
"Oh," said Hennie, "then shako
hands."
Dudley, muoh amused, and more
touched, took the wasted child's hand
in his and patted it gently.
"Poor little man, we must be friends,
you and I, good friends, shall we?"
"Yes," answered Hennie, gravely;
then decidedly, "yes, you have a nice
face, I shall like you; but where'i
missy?"
"Missy is warm asleep bv this time;
do you like my pretty baby sister,
Hennie?"
"A quaint bright look crossed the
boy's face.
"Like is too little a word, find a
bigger;" then, with alow, happy laugh,
"Here's Lucy, I know it's Lucy, and
we can all be comfortable."
Had Lucy Graham been a lady she
could not have been met by more respect and courtesy than Dudley paid
to the poor seamstress; and so gentle
were his words and manners that she
loon began to blush less painfully,
and the shy look disappeared, and
when Hennie said, "The ladies havo
oome to talk to you, Lucy," she took
the only chair, which Dudley had just
vacated for her, by ray aide, and waited smilingly for me to speak.
"This is the good-bye visit, Luoy,
that I promised you; the day after
to-morrow we start for Lancashire."
"Yes, I know; I am very sorry,
ihe answered, in the subdued voico
that sounded as if thu sore heart had
no room for lesser troubles.
"Hennie will miss you and the dear
little girl too; he is always talking of
her."
"How would you like, Hennie, to
live with the little girl always?" I said,
stooping doffn to the thin face now
laid wearily on ita pillow—"with ine
and Dudley too, in the dear old house
I told you of, to lie on the lawn all
day, under the shady trees and among
the flowers and birds, with Lucy to
lit and aew beside you?"
Hennie opened his oyos gleefully,
but did not ipeak; while Lucy clasped
her hands involuntarily.
"Because if you would, you must
help tu to persuade Luoy to leave this
poor room, and the hard work, and
the little pay, and come back with us
to live at Sunnyside."
"Sunnyside?' cried Luoy, in a tone
as if ahe were asleep; poor girl, her
path lay too muoh in tho dark shade
to know what I meant by the Sunny-
lide.
"That is the name of our house,
Luoy, of my own dear home, and it
richly deserves its namo. Sunnyside
it hu always been to us till the last
sad months, and we hope we shall
again learn to call it so. Hennie,
shall you like it?'1
For answer, his two little arms
clasped rae tight, and the boy's dry
hot kiisos fell on my cheek; it was the
first time he had ever shown any
token of feeling for me.
"I am serious," I continued, turning to his mother, "and it is for your
ohild's sake as much as for yours that
I make this otfer, for it is easy to see
that thii close dark attic, meager diet,
and want of dally aud hourly nursing,
have added fearfully to the real dis.
ease from which the boy is suffering.
Give him light, air, cheerful companionship, and good nourishing food, and
much may be done; therefore, Luoy,
If your are willing I will take you and
the boy, and can for you both."
"But how can I accept such generosity, and be a burthen to you? No,
no, I cannot."
"You will be no burthen," I an-
■wared, "for I will ahow you how you
ean repay me, and indeed maintain
yonr honest independence aa much as
you do now."
"Ah, if that be bo," Bhe answered,
crimsoning brightly with surprise and
pleasure; "how can I serve you,
ma'am?"
"I will tell you. Our nurse, who
has lived with ub since Hill was born,
is about to get married. She has put
it off twice, because she would not
leave ub in our trouble; but Louie
writes that her good man's getting
restless; and, in short, Ann will be
thankful if I take the initiative and
ask her to go. There is no nursery
work now, for Rill is my ospeoial
charge, but there is moro needle-work
than Bho and I know how to get
through; and it is by your deft nimble
fingers that you can serve me, Lucy.
The old nursery iB a large cheerful
room, and that aud the adjoining bedroom shall ba given up to you and the
boy. Do' you think you can be happy
there?"
With a burst of grateful tears she
took my hand and pressed it to her
lips.
"I will work, ma'am, for you as I
never worked in my life. Oh, how
dared I hope for suoh blessings for my
boy? I only live for hiin now, and if
he bo happy I shall know peace;" and
thon, as if she could not contain herself, and heedless of Dudley's presenco,
Bhe rose, and laying hor head down on
Hennio's pillow, clasped him to her
breast. Something in that hungry
yearning clasp, in the bout golden
head, seemed to touch Dudley, for
with tears in his eyes ho rose and left
the room.
Wo lingered to speak more comfort-
iug words to Lucy, and to givo directions for her nnd Hennio's outfit, and
then we left.
"What do you think ot her, Dudley?" I asked, as I took Iub arm in the
poroh.
"I don't want to think of her, I
want to get them both out of my head;
poor girl, poor girll" and seeing him
bo deeply affected I said no more, only
asking him if I had done right.
"Perfectly, you always do," and so
the matter dropped.
The next day waa a very busy one,
for it waa our last at the manse.
After packing, Katie and I went down
to the village to choose some neat
print dresses for Lucy, and a tidy
bonnet and Bhawl and sundry other
necessaries for her and Hennie. These
Katie promised should be all made
ready for her, and Bhe herself would
see them to the station, and make
arrangements for Hennio's safe removal.
This and much more did Katie promise, sitting on my bed in tho little
chintz room, with her bonnie brown
hair all unbound and falling round
her bright face.
"Tt is a promise, Katie, mind, a real
downright promise to spend Christmas
with us; nothing will induce me to
let you off, and Dudley is as anxious
as I."
"I am coming," she said; "mother
and father will be in Edinburgh, and I
shall feel free. It's ill I like parting
with you, Nellie, but the looking forward to see you and dear Sunnyside
again will cheer me up, now Keith is
gone."
And trusting to that promise, both
Katio and I took heart while the last
lingering good-byes woro said at the
old manso gate on the morrow; and
though the tears stood iu her eyes
and trembled iu her voice, yet bright
were her last smiles and words to us,
bonnie-hearted Katie!
"What a peaceful time it has been,
Nell," said Dudley, leaning back in
the carriage, "a pleasant restful timo;
but I am very thankful that we are
not going homo, but have a fortnight'"
respite yet."
It was easy to see how he dreaded
that going home*, poor fellow, and I
for him; but when I saw the healthful
glow on hiB cheek and the renewed
life in hie eyes, I had hopes that it
might prove less painful than we either
of us thought.
We were to sleep a night on the
road, so Dudley and the minister arranged; and it was early on the afternoon of the following day that our
train drew up.puffing and snorting at
the unpretending and shabby little
station for Whalley and Sabden. Long
before it lay at rest, Dudley's head
and Scotch cap were thrust out of the
window, in eager search for the expected figure; while I peeped curiously
through the blue-curtained pane of
glass at iny Bide.
Both pairs of eyes, however, were
disappointed: the sole tenants of the
platform were an old woman with a
market basket, two whistling boys,
and a sickly-looking girl with a baby;
and leaning against a gate-rail at tho
farther end a tall soldierly looking
person with two superb deerhouuds
in a leash.
"That Ib not he, surely, Dudley?"
"Who—Herwald Delorme? Nonsense, child; do you suppose he wears
an oriental beard like that? no, he is
not here, I can aee; so jump out while
I look after the luggage."
No, he was not come as he had
promised, and it was very disappointing; Dudley, I could see, thought bo
too; and then I started, for I felt a
touch on my arm.
"Miss Mortimer, I believe," and I
turned round to see myself accosted
by the bearded man of the deer-
hounds.
"Yea, that is my name."
"And that ia Mr. Mortimer standing by the luggage?'1 Again I assented.
"I am the bearer of my master's
apologies for the non-performance of
his promise to meet you; very trouble:
some buiiness has summoned him to
D , and when he found that he
would be too late for the train he sent
me on; he hopes, however, to be up
at the Hall in another hour, and
seems dreadfully vexed at not being
ablo to receive you there himself. If
you will follow me you will find tho
carriage at the foot of the steps,"
I obeyed after summoning Dudley,
whose face lighted up on hearing that
business only detained Herwald; and
when he had spoken a few civil words
to our tall guide, and had caressed the
magnificent animals that drooped their
heads woll pleased to his touch, we
entered the carriage, and in a moment
the high-apiritou bays were carrying
us away at a speed Lhat seemed to bid
defiance to the Lancashire hills.
"Who is that fine-looking man,
Dudley? he does not wear livery or
seem to speak like a servant, and yet
he said his master had sont him."
"I cannot tell who be is, but did
you evor see such dogs, Nellie? Herwald was always a capital judgo of
animals. Look, there is one coming
up alter us now, at auch a pace; ah,
he has whistled him back, you can't
see him." And Dudley relapsed into
silence, whilo I looked eagerly out at
the new country through whioh we
were passing.
