Provincial BIrIU-j.
In u lato issue the Nanaimo Free
Press saja, "The Dominion government would u|>|hw to lie making •
dead set' against the permanent proa-
neiritj of this western provinc* of
the confederation. Firat they foist
the iniquitous Settlement Aot ou
the province and assist in placing
tlie eoal lands of the Pacifio coast in
the hands of a crushing aud antagonistic foreign monopoly. Now,' according to our telegraphic dispatches
the minister of justice has informed
Premier Smithe that the unti Chinese
immigration bill passed nt the late
session of the provincial legislature
lias been disallowed. Two severe,
if not fatal injuries, inflicted on the
provinco by the same authority
within one short month. Should
the people of this fair piovince tamely submit to such repeated governmental injustice? We say emphatically no! There nre higher powers
than either the Dominion parliament
or the Dominion; government and
they ihould be appealed to on these
grave and momentous questions, that
will surely retard if not ontirely
cripple the prosperity of tha province,
which is often designated us the
brightest jewel in the Dominion
diiulem. We have thosnpromocourts
and the committee of the privy
council as a dernier resort. Able
legal men in the East and also in
this province have boldly expressed
the opinion that it was entirely be-
youd the powers of the provinoial
parliament to alienate suoh an immense quantity of land, as that contained in tho railway belt, from its
legitimate object, i.e., that the land
belonged to the people and sbould
be retained by its custodians—the
government—for the use of the people and that it was ultra vires for
the parliament to' disposn of the
lands in ono continuous and solid
blook to auy syndicate. The recent
license question shows plainly a bold
attempt on the part of the Dominion
to unjustly and illegally usurp provincial rights and prerogatives, Tho
same argument can bo applied to the
action of the federal government in
disallowing the Chinese bill. Have
the provinces no rights) no powers 1
no privileges) It appears not by the
recent actions of the Dominion parliament. An appeal to a legal tri.
bunel might show otherwise. Ontario brought her influence to beat-
on tbo liquor question and the Macdonald ministry had to consent to
its being taken before a legal tribunal. British Columblu should do
the same in tho Chinese mutter.
The provincial government could on-
force their anti-Chinese acts, und
thus have their constitutionality
tested by a legal and untramelled
tribunal aud not rest satisfied with
the decision of a plitical authority."
Long since The Columbian pointed
out the dangers which were threatening the existence of onr confederation through the usurpation of power
by the federal authorities. When
Ontario and Manitoba were struggling for provincial rights wo predicted that beforo long llritish Columbia would feel the forco of the
veto (lower which was being so freely
exercised at Ottawa. We have felt
it already. Tho southern railway
bills have been disallowed, and now
the Chinese bills have met with a
similar fate. While this journal was
sounding the alarm, our contemporaries seemed quite oontent to ho)d
their peace, but now when the evil
has actually come upon us they begin
to howl. There should be a defensive
alliance entered into by the western
provinces to stand by each other in
the struggle''for provincial rights.
Such au altiauco, if mudo in good
kith, would force recognition from
the Dominion parliament, for British Colnmbia, Manitoba aud Ontario can rule Canada if they put tlieir
heads together. The free Press
makes a great mistake, however, iu
mixing up the settlement bill with
provinoial rights. That bill was first
passed by our own legislature, and
its ratification bv the bouse of commons meets with tbe approval of at
least three-fourths of the people of
British Columbia.

■-Death in Dakota.
What elsewhere is a  snowfall for
food sleighing is a demon in Dakota.
'he blizzard comes up suddenly und
without warning like n tornado. It
haa the driving force of. a tornado. It
taken up the dry hard flakes and impels
thein in clouds of solid crystals against
all obstructing objects, cutting the
flesh like razors. In spite of the
whiteness everything ia obscured. It
grows cold rapidly—freezing to death
ia one of its terrors. Nothing will pre-
vent ono's losing hill way; no amount
of clothing will save him from perishing. The nostrils and tonguo are con-
gaaled; the eyea ache to their sockets;
there is a ringing noise like the ringing of the telegraph wires; a roar like
steam escaping from a thousand locomotives. If new settlors are poor,
they find it diflicult to buy fuel enough
to provide against the rigors of winter.!
If their stock fails during the btard
season they are helpless. Tlioy dare
not leave their houses nnd shelter long
enough to procure more fuel lest they
he caught in a blizzard, which comes
without warning. One family this last
winter becoming dependent for fuel
on its straw stack half a mile from the
bouse, perished while engaged in bringing more straff to the house. The
blizzard swept over them and they
were gone, scattered tike lost sheep on
the prairie, and frozen to death. Tbe
wind is bo tierce that oven after the
clouds have passed and it has stopped
mowing, the air is full of the Hying
snow, ao dense that no one exposed to
it knows that the storm is over, even
though on looking up he catchcB
glimpses of the clear sky, Dakota
may be a fine stale to live in, but,
according to all accounts, it is nowhere
as compared with its advantages as a
good Hate to die itt. Every Michigan
citizen going there needs to be & good
pious, prudent person, prepared to
leave tbis world at any minute, nnd
have all his affairs arranged for a sudden taking off.—-Detroit free Press.

The Ontario conspiracy.
Toronto, April 8.—At 11 o'clock today tho Polico Magistrate delivered
judgment in the famous conspiracy
case. Thu court room was crowded,
and on the faces of many, including
Iho uccused, anxiety was visibly depicted. The defendants nll being present, tbo reading of the lengthy judgment wus proceeded with, ft covered
about thirty pages of foolscap, went
over tho ground already travelled in
the examination, and dealt with tbe
evidence in detail. When the Magistrate was nbout halt through the document Kirkland, who apparently suffered from mental excitement or n foul
atmosphere, fainted, and had to be
carried from tho court room to an adjoining apartment, where restoratives
were applied. When sufficiently recovered ho returned, and the reading
waa resumed. The Magistrate ably
reviewed the mass of evidence and the
arguments -of the learned counsel and
held thnt tbe charge had been fully
sustained. Re accordingly committed
the defendants for trial, and fixed the
bail at 00,000 in each case. The defendants Bunting, Meek, Wilkinson
and Kirkland were accompanied by a
number of friends, and wero present
from the opening of tho court. The
Magistrate, after dwelling on the nature of the alleged crime, stated in tho
judgment that, su far as overturning
the Mowat Government was concerned,
the conspiracy would have been a perfectly legal one, if only the conspirators had used legal weapons. He contended that according to the evidence
they had not, arid one and all had
showed themselves guilty of conspiracy
and bribery. He commented at length
on tho character of the evidence for
Crown, eulogizing Messrs. McKim,
Balfour, Dowling nnd Ouscaden, and
claiming thnt thoir testimony required
no corroboration.

Moses In the Soudan.
The .Soudan is nono other than the
Cush of the Bible, which the Septua-
gint and tlm Vulgate render Ethiopia.
When Moses had arrived at man's
estate Egypt was invaded, by an Ethiopian army, which successfully laid
waste the country as far as Memphis,
Iu their despair the Egyptians prayed
to their oracles for aid, and tho advice
they recoived was that they should
offer the leadership of their armies to
"Moses, the Hebrew." This thoy
did. The great difficulty of the campaign was to traverse the ruatts which
fed to the Ethiopian camp, iiieoiise-
Silence of their being infested with
angorotiB serpents. Tho wily Israelite provided his advance guard with a
number of thes in baskets nnd instructed tho soldiers to let tho birds loose ou
the serpents. By this ingenious expedient the roods wero speedily
cleared nnd Moses wns enabled to surprise the Ethiopians nnd defeat thom
with great slaughter. Gnrryiug the
war into Memo itself, Moses then laid
siege to the capital, Saba, The obstinate resistance offered by the defenders prolonged the siege for sumo time,
but eventually the city was delivered
up by Thnrbis, the daughter of the
Ethiopian King, who had watched
Moses from a distance, uud from admiring hie vnlor hnd fallen in love with
him. Tlie story ends happily with the
marriage of Moses and Tlmrbia.-—

AtlKUICAN   NEWAPAtmS IN 1884.—
From the edition of Messrs. duo. P,
Rowell <& Co.'s AmericanNewspaper,
Directory, now in press, it appears that
the newspapers and periodicals of nll
kinds at presont issued in the United
States and Canada reach a grand total
of L%402. This is a net gain of precisely 1,000 during tbe last twelve
months, and exhibits an increase of
5,018 over the total number published
just ten years since. The increase in
1874 over the tt,tal for 1873 was 403.
During the post year the dailies hnve
increased from 1,138 to 1,254; the
weeklies from 0,092 to 10,028; and the
monthlies from 1,091 to 1,40... The
greatest increase is in tho Western
States. Illinois, for instance, now
shows 1,000 papers in place of lost
year's total of 004, while Missouri issues 604 instead of the 523 reported in
1883. Othor loading Western States
also exhibit a gioat percentage of increaso, The total number of papers in
Now York State is 1.523, against 1,399
iu 1883. Canada has shared in the
general increase. I

Those Despatches,
Out* friend of the Colonist returns
to the matter of "exclusive despatches," and attempts most clumsily- to defend hia jjofritiou. The excuse given for ropy ing despatches
from Pugot Sound pupers is thnt he
belongs to the sumo press association. This is a very lame excuse,
to say the least of it. But our
principal charge ugainst the consistency of the Colonist was that,
before becoming u member of tlio
wssociution, it lielpetl itself without
stint to the telegrams published in
Seattle papers, without giving credit. In those days wc heard nothing about "stealing" dispatches. The
Coloimt cannot escape tlmt ugly
fact.
The Result.
Kveiy true friend of thia city
must rejoice at the result of the
contest last Monday, Mr. Cunningham came into tbe field as the government candidate, and the very
handsome majority he secured is
evidence tbat tho people of New
Westminster are not forgetful of
tbe handsome treatment they have
received from the present .government Mr. Cunningham's majority
over Mr. Bole is 24, in a vote of
168, and 45 over Mr. Edmonds.
Bnt Mr. Edmonds was also a supporter of the government party, and
took a number of votes which would
otherwise have gone co Mr. Cun-
ninghum. It is safe to say that Mr.
Bole received tho vote of every
elector opposed to the party of pro
gross, and through personal and
other considerations ho probably
took a number of other votes.
It muy fairly bo accepted as
n fact, therefore, thut there are not
mure than fifty electors iu this city
wlm Imve "any wish to see the present government defeated. The vote
shows how great a change has been
effected in public sentiment sinco
tlie present government cuuie -into
(tower; for although Mr, Bole pro-
fussed himself willing to support the
government, we' apprehend that
iho.se professions were not accepted
as very sincere by those who knew
his political history. Now Westminster certainly ought to bo grateful to the government, and her action on Monday will give her an
tiddilioiml claim to official consideration. The contest throughout was
generally conducted in a very fair
and pioiwr .spirit. The candidates
und their friends worked with considerable energy, but, with one exception, avoided those personal encounters which too often mark and
disfigure political campaigns. The
last manifesto issued by Mr. Bole
was unworthy of bim, and if we
me not mistaken it- hud the very
npjioaile elTect from that which he
wished. A candidate who .seeks to
strengthen bis position by resorting
to the expedient of applying stale
Guardian nick-names to hia opponent may sometimes aim too low. In
Mr. Cunningham this city has a
member who is thoroughly identified
with her interests, and who represents the political opinions of a vast
majority of the eleotors; and we be.
lieve that the constituency will not
have reason to regret its choice.
The Chinese Bills.
In a late nnmber of the Hen
Kmncisco Bulletin we find the foi
lowing article: "The minister of
justice of the Dominion of Canada
has informed the Premier of British
Columbia tbat the act of the parliament of that colony, imposing a
head tax of $50 on each Chinaman
seeking an entrance, is disallowed.
The ruling comes in time to let in a
large cargo of coolies now on the
way to Victoria. British Columbia,
apparently in an evil hour for herself, cast in her lot with the Dominion, The consideration was a rail*
road, whieh haa not yet been finishod,
and is not likely to be for a long
time to come. Previous to the annexation, British Columbia was
what might- be called nn independent colony, ft was competent for
it to enter upon any legislative policy which it might consider to be
essential to its welfare, subject only
to the Imperial government nt home.
But by the union with Canada the
supreme direction of nlTitirs appears
to have been transferred to Ottawa,
but on what principle cannot be determined. T^e aet excluding the
Chinese, if anything, was an uct
having a bearing on imperial rnther
than Canadian policy. Canudn, being a colony itself, can havu no distinctive foreign relations. There is
do treaty between Canada and Chi-
But whether the power to dis
eased.   A former act of the'British
Columbia parliament excluding Chinese \Ya;i disallowed some years ago
on the ground lhat Chineso laborers nru needed for the construction
of   the  Canadian   railway.     The
chances are thut the disallowance
now is bused or supposed to be based
on a like consideration.     But the
Iuijierial government itself has been
more tender of tho wishes of the
colonies than Canada shows herself
to be of those of her latest acquisition—that is to say, British Columbia.    Tho nets passed by some of
the Australian colonies, imposing a
much larger capitation tax on Chinese, for the purpose of excluding
them, wus first negatived in London.   But when they were passed a
second   time the Imperial government acquiesced and permitted them
to go into operation.   It is an error
in   tho  first pluco to assume that
there is any treaty between England
and China  which  peimits Chinese
immigration.   The United States is
tho only civilized nation that is in
tho   enjoyment   of  a   Burliuguine
treaty.     But even if there was a
treaty in the wny it would not be
an insurmountable bar to exclusion.
The average editor will get it into
his head sometime before the millennia)   that  in this country and in
England the last act of the congress
or parliament is the expression of
the  national will.    If it conflicts
with any treaty tho treaty goes to
tho wall.     This is the law in this
country repeatedly laid down by the
supreme court of the United States.
That it is the practice in England
is sufficiently proved by the recent
passage  in   parliament of  au act
modifying   the   extradition   treaty
with this country, and thnt without asking onr leave.   The remedy
for tbe country whose treaty is so
modified   is   the lUtima ratio, but
that  is  something • which, in the
nature of things, would not be resorted   to  except  in the most extreme cases.   But the uct imposing
u head tax of $50 ou each Chinaman seeking to enter the colony, is
not the only aot passed liy the parliament of British Columbia, on the
subject  under  discussion, at  that
time.     A  aecond was formulated
which, as it relates to matters ef
internal police, ought not to require
the assent of Canada to impart validity   to it, unless by the  uct of
union British Coiumbin surrendered
its right to self-government.   That
act imposes a tax of $10 upon every
Chinamuu over   fourteen years of
age in  the province, und n yearly
tux  of $10 ns long as lie remains.
Any   Chinaman   found   without a
license is to be lined $40,   Every
employer of Chinese is to furnish
a list of those in bis pay.   Every
toll-gate keeper is to mnke the passing   Chineso   exhibit   his   license.
Any   person    employing   Chinese
without  a   license   is   to be fined
■-■"'O.   The prico of a uiiuei's certificate for Chinese is fixed at $15
per annum.   The pentilty for evasion   is 8110.    These facts are recited to show how tho Chinese are
dealt  with in other countries.    If
we had imposed such restrictions,
every   long-haired, man nnd short-
haired woman in the country would
be taken with a bad fit of snivelling.
But though balked for the time in
its efforts to shut the door ugainst
the Chinese interlopers, British Columbia   will   be   very   apt to succeed in the long run.   The Chinese
are gathering sn rapidly there that
pretty soon  it   will bn a question
of lifo or denth for the whites.   But
while  Chinese  exclusion iu struggling to become the rule among our
neighbors on the northern frontier,
the people adjoining us in tho south
ure not idle.    They have imposed
nn admission fee of $65 on coolies
at  Quaymas.     Tlie Mexicans are
always very sharp in tho collection
of taxes.   There wilt not be much
dodging  or evasion allowed down
there.     Wherever the yellow barbarian   makes   his appearance- the
bars are put up.   It has been so for
centuries  and  is so   to-day.   The
reason   is  that   he is nn invader
rather than a settler; that he is un-
impressible and unassimilable* and
that he is given over to unspeakable
vices, which take root wherever he
sojourns."

The Govctiior-Genewl hu had
his income from Irish lands out
down once more. At a recent meet
ing of the Limerick Sub-Commissioners, under tho Land Act some
sweeping reductions were made on
the rentals of Lard Lansdowne.
In one caso a rental of- £2,400 was
reduced to £1,800. The. reductions
on an average ranged from 25 to 40
per cent. From this result, which
has caused much rejoicing' among
the tenants, it would appear tliat
the competition to get farms in Ireland has enabled Lord Lansdowne
to obtain rents far in advance of the
real value of his property.

requested to say lhat no person will be
allowed on board the C.P.N, steamers
arriving here, without a ticket or an
order from the office. Thia regulation
is made for the purpose of preventing
the disorder and confusion which result from persons crowding on board
tho steamers from idle curiosity. Those
who have business on board can obtain
an order nt the steamboat office, and
should do so before the arrival of the
steamer.
Stereotyping.— A large stereotyping maohine has just been added to
tha "Columbian 'printing Establishment." This is, wo believe, the only
machine of the kind in British Columbia, and it will considerably facilitate
the execution of job printing, which
has now grown to largo dimensions.
By means of this machine we will be
able, at small cost, to furnish tho
Guardian with stereotyped plates bearing tht name "Honest John" fnr
editorial use. This will greatly reduce
the cost of type-setting for our contemporary. '
Danoeuour SroRT.—Mr. Roycndt,
of the provincial police, arrested two
Indian boys nt Nicomen and brought
them to this city on Monday. They
are aged respectively 7 and 10 yearn,
and are charged with being the persons
who took off tho bolts and fish plates
from the railway track a short lime
ago. Tho boys, it is said, wero playing
on the track, and began hammering
the bolts out and removing the plates.
They do not deny the charge, hut it is
evident they had no conception of tho
serious results which might follow.
Tho little' fellows are now in jail.

The Snag Boat,—It has been arranged that the snag boat will proceed
to Comox to do some work before coming to the Fraser River. This arrangement is undoubtedly a mistake. The
water in ths river is already rising, and
will soon be too high to allow the snag
boat to operate here. At the present
time there are several places in tho
river where fishermen find it impossible to draw their nets ou account of
snags: This is just tho time when the
snag boat should be in the river, and
she should certainly come here before
going to Comox.. We hope the present
programme will be rearranged so ns to

Victoria Press Opinions.
The government organ will doubtless claim that Mr. Cunningham's return is another brilliant victory for
the government; but in face of the
statement'the Colonist made on Sunday last to the effect that alt three
candidates wero out and out government supporters, the brilliancy of the
victory is considerably dimmed. Mr,
Cunningham, we believe to be a con-*
srientious and upright man, and although to-day he may bo in favor of
tho present so-ciilled policy of the government, we will venture to state he
will prove no pliant tool in tlieir
hands. Should he serve Iua constituency as faithfully as his predecessor
did New Westminster will uo occasion
to regret her choice.—Stdndui-d,
The return of Mr. Cunningham for
Now Westminster eity furnishes further evidence—if any were wanting	
of tlie popularity of the government
policy, which may be said to have beon
on trial. Tho election wns a tost; nnd
the test has resulted iu the triumphal
endorsement- of the ministerial dry-
dock, island railway, and railway lands
policy. The verdiot is too pronounced
to be misunderstood. The opposition
have always contended that New Westminster did uot approve of tho settlement bill, but iu the election of Mr.
Cunningham proof is furnished that
the contention was incorrect. We
fool confident that if the country were
polled two-thirds of the electors would
signify their approval of a measure
that has lifted the province from a
condition of poverty to one of comparative independence. —Colonist.

Meeting ut Port Mood).
(Correspondence of tlio Columbian,)
For some time past tiie peoplo uf
Port Moody havo been anxious for tho
establishment of a public sohool in this
city. It wns felt upon all hands that
a school was much needed, but the
difficulty was that the proper time for
making application had boen allowed
to pass unimproved and, as no provision had been made in the estimates,
it was feared that nothing could be
done until noxt year. When, however,
it became known, on Saturday last,
that the Provincial Secretary, Hon.
Jno. Robson, would be in Port Moody
that day, it wns suggested thnt it might
be well tu call u public meeting aud
discuss tho matter with him upon the
Apot. This was dono nnd though,
owing to the wnnt of sufficient time,
tho notico was imperfectly circulated
there mot in Temperance Hall at eight
o'clock that ovening.ahout eighty gentlemen resident in the vicinity and
thoroughly representative of ull classes
of tho community. Upon motion of
T. R. McCillivray, Esq., J. P., seconded by Mr. R. B. Kelly, Capt. Clarke
wns called to the chair, nfter which
Mr. Meek was elected -secretary. The
chairman called upon Mr. Meek to ox-
plain the object of tho meeting, which
that gentleman did by stating that.
there wore some twenty-six children
of school ago in tho vicinity and the
want of a public school for then- use
was much felt, the prosijnt meoting
being designed to promote tho establishment of such a school. Upon suggestion from Mr. Kelly, the chairman
called upon the Provincial Secretary,
who was present, to explain tho steps
to be taken in order to carry out the
purpose of tho meeting. The Hon,
Mr. Robson then gave a clear exposition of the requirements of the school
law iu relation to thu crention or* school
district* nud establishment of schools.
He expressed his regret that the proper
petition had uot been sent in beforo
the estimates for the yoar were framed.
Hnd thnt been done the amount required for the erection of u school
house and the salary of a competent
teacher would have been placed in the
vote taken fnr educational |mr|lQaua. j
Howover, under the [leouliiu- and j
pressing circumstances ho uould, if,
the proper petition were own now sent
in, take great pleasure, as tlieir representative, iu laying the matter before his
colleagues in thu govornmont and they
might rest assured that, if tnere was
any way in whioh it oould be done
constitutionally and with justice to
other interests, their request would he
granted. He would do everything in
Hii power to have them provided with
m teacher nnd, if possiblo, a hcIiooI
House nt onco, but, iu uny case, with
a toaoher and the sohool house would
follow next year. Ho wished to know
if' th caso a school house wero secured
a site would tie available; whereupon
the chairman announced his intention
to. donate two eity lots for that pw>
»
pose. This announcement was received
with loud cheers. Mr. William* also,
intimated his willingness, in case a
school house could not be obtainod at
onco', to titlow ti large nnd well lighted
room over his store to bo used meanwhile as a school room. A petition
for the creation of a school distriot and
establish ment. of a public school was
thou read by Mr. Meek, adopted by
the meeting aud subsequently signed
by the electors present. Tlie Hon.
Jno. Robson than moved, seconded by
Mr. Kelly, that the thanks of the
meeting be given to Capt. Clarke for
his generous donation of a school site,
Tho motion wus put by tho mover nnd
carried with applause. A similar motion was paused in reference to Mr.
Williams' kind offer of a room,
Subsequently questions were usked iu
reference to tho roads, public lunds und
incorporation, iu replying to which the
Provincial Secretary forcefully and
eloquently explained uud justified the
course pursued by the government in
reference to these matters. His statements wero listened to with tho deepest attention aud received with frequent and hearty applause. Mr.
Meek theu moved a resolution expressive of thanks to the Hon. Provincial
Secretary for his full nud satisfactory
explanations und assurances. This
resolution was curried most heartily.
The meeting wasoneof the most orderly,
lively nnd enjoyable ever held in the
district, and at its close there were
jneny congratulatory expressions as to
nio success which had boon achieved
in affording much needed information
to the settlers and citizens of Port
Moody nnd placing all parties in a
position to work harmoniously for the
future good of the terminal city.

Editor CoLUMWA^.-^-Havliigfobservcd
for some time past that Surrey and its
resources have beeu altogether neglected
in the Columbian reports and communications from the rural districts, and remembering the large number of new settlers we secured last season, partly
through its instrumentality, I cannot
longer refrain from': bringing before'the
notice of those' newly arrived in this
British Columbia of ours the fact that
we have still a large amount of government land awaiting settlement within
the municipal limits of Surrey, among
which may be found some choice selections. I have been anxiously waiting to
sec our corporation authorities take this
subject in hand, but I presume thoy are
occupied with questions of greater importance than settling ap the country
and developing what will eventually become one of the finest agricultural districts in the Fraser valley. Wo have
room for a large number of settlers in almost all parts of the municipality, particularly in tho vicinity of Hall's prairie,
there are a few choice locations awaiting
settlement, also somo good partly improved properties idot sale cheap. I
would like to soe a family located on
every quarter-section of land ; hcio is a
country that will support a large papulation; onr natural. resources aro practically unlimited and'almost wholly undeveloped; the climate is unsurpassed;
there are also great inducements for
manufacturers among us, good shipping
facilities, ke. Trusting the municipality
of Surrey will receive the amount of attention, from those now coming into the
country, its climate, resources, and capabilities entitle it to.- Yours, fee,,

The fact it, the Enow is to deep that

is there, and the conclusion I have

measure are like the Skngit mines.
The hotel keepers and furnishers nf

To conoludo, I will say thut is not
wise for anybody to come to Spokane

provisions frtlm Cceur d'Alene City
into Eagle City, a distance of about
ono hundred miles. A stoamer leaves

Thoro is also a stago lino from Spokane Falls to Eagle City.
The stago arrived at Spokane Falls
last ovening, having on board Clem
King and a party of capitalists who
have been into the mines on a prospecting tour. The former is a jron-
tleiimn of means who owns a half

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
Charlie fretted himself nearly HI
when he saw the genuine sorrow he
- hud caused; but a week afterwards ho
liid forgotten all about it, when ho
ransacked my medicine-shelf, and administered pills to tho self-same littlo
victims, who, deluded by the gilt,
swallowed them whole, aud asked for
more.
After that Charlie was banished the
nursery, and nfter having damaged
himself severely in Halcot's and Seymour's laboratory, and filled the houso
with noxious perfumes, that haunted
it for liours, «ot up a blaze with n box
nf lueiferi, that he handled carelessly,
und ns nearly as possiblo burnt Sunnyside to the ground; but tliis time hia
own terror nave him a memorablo lesson, nnd Ins remorse was so pungent
thnt even Bruce, tlio hardest of liis
taskmasters, frankly condoned his
<'House.
Who, indeed, could resist thoso
sweet violet eyes, swimming in tear?,
or the piteous plaintiveness of his
voice praying to bo forgiven; for in
that loving little heart anger and resentment had no placo, and after the
sternest reprimand he would nestle
with clinging arms, and soft, close
kisses, lill he saw tbe frown disappear,
and the old smile come back,
"Take core of' little Oharlio," ay
mother, yonr poor little Charlie, your
poor unhappy little Charlie.!
if school time were a harass to me,
what must the holidays have been?
when his youthful monitors betook
them to distant fishings and rambles,
and left my boy-torment for me to interest and amuse; but never had even
I found it so hard ns during the Christmas vacation that had just arrived.
For it was the most unseasonable
Christmas that wo had seen for years;
with hot murky vapors, and dank unwholesome exhalations rising from rhe
meadows and stubble lands, and a
brooding mist, that dissolved into rain,
for days together.
A miserable time for our poor buys,
with tho memory of last Christmas
fresh in their minds; no snow-man in
the orchard, no snow-trenches, uo
skating, and it was fortunate for Halcot that his fortnight's visit to Hurst
Hall, with its unwonted festivity and
pleasure, made the remaining holidays
more bearable; but it was very dull
for Seymour iu his quiet parsonngo,
nud Charlie, a prisoner at Sunnyside;
especially as Rill had transformed herself into a little sulky needle-woman,
who planted herself at Nell's feet,
and, pricking herself haughtily, told
"that bad boy Charlie to be quiet, and
go and play by himself."
Thus nbandoned to his own resources, Charlie involved himself in
such- a cloud of peccadilloes and practical annoyances that he fairly woro
out my patience, and Dudleys too;
und both hailed Halcot's return from
the north with unwonted delight,
trusting to his rough boy guardianship
to extricate poor Puck from further
disgrace,
The damp unhealthy weather still
continued, and it began to be bruited
abroad in the villago, that it was likely
to be a sickly season, and that Dr,
Waldegrave had been heard to say
that tne mortality waa dreadful in the
low-lying lands, especially among the
old people and children.
Hnlcot, when he went down the
town with Seymour, was suro to bring
home some dismal report. One day
it wns that a low fever had broken out
in the brick makers' cottages, and that
ho had met young Frederic Sparkes,
Dr. Wnldegrave's assistant, riding
back with a very doleful face;—and
folks hnd said, three of the Cluppins'
children lay dead together.
But this was nothing to the terrible
news that "diphtheria," that new,
mysterious malady, hod shown itself
in the healthier parts of the town, and
that scarlet fever had broken out in
tho Hummel.-.' house, and that Walter
and Freddy Hammel, Halcot's schoolfellows, with their little sister flor-
trude, were down with it.
By and by the liell began to toll,
und the boys came in one day, with
red eyes and sorrowful faces, to say
that they had been standing bareheaded in the parsonage garden, while little Qerty had been laid to rest in tho
grout Hammel vault, that hnd not
been opened for many long years; and
the tears rolled down Seymour's checks
as ho whispered that it was hut too
likely that poor Walter would soon be
laid there too.
But myterrorreachod its climax when
I heard that Felix Brookes, Charlie's
especial "chum" and playmate, had
sickened too, and, in accordance with
my advice, the boys were seriously interdicted by Dudley from visiting at
any of their school-fellows' houses
during the remainder of the holidays,
till the amount of the mischief could
be estimated; and both of them were
warned to keep within bounds, and on
no account to enter tho church-yard,
where the number of freshly-mudo
little graves augmented every day.
Presently, prayers began to be read
in the church tor the sick and dying,
but still the pestilence continued, and
day by day the reports grew worse in
the village,
Ono "morning, towards the closo of
the holidays, I noticed that Charlie
had been reading intently for hours,
curled up in the drawing-room window-
seat, elbows on knees; and as it wns a
ran thing to see a book iu his hand
for more than ten minutes at a timo,
I looked over his shoulder with some
curiosity, to see what could so interest him.
"Grimm's Fairy Tales," I remarked,
half aloud; and to my aurprise, he
instantly shut the book, with a very
red fact, and muttering something
about Washing his hands for dinner,
ran out of the room, forgetting, however, to tako the book with him.
Just then Halcot came in, and, attracted by the gaudy binding, took it
up.
'"Grimm's Fairy Tales!' why, the
very thing Seymour and I have boen
wanting to get hold of for months,
only no one had it to lend; wherever
lliu Charlie got it from? Hallo!"—
oponing the fly-leaf—"Willie Bonson;
—why "
Then, etopriing abruptly, he bocaino
Almost iu red as Charlie did; and saying something about "that boy being
always up to mischief," he went off in
search of hint.
Rather perplexed by this mysterious
conduct I was about to follow him, and
lift it out for myself, when the bell
summoned me to my post at the head
of the tablo, and other matters put it
out of my mlntt.
For Dudley had a headache, and
oould eat nothing* and looked so ill
besides, that it quito disturbed my own
appetite; while the weary irritable way
in which ha spoko to Hester and the
aWMren, showed ma that something
hod occurred to tr}'his temper thiit
morning.
And. so it-turned out; for Bruce,
calling in on his way to the factory, to
bring, me tho lost Indian letter from
Keith, with Aunt Margaret's love, confessed that there hod been some slight
words between them, relative to a new
piece of machinery, about which Dudley had been both unreasonable and
obstinate; even their trusty foreman,
Drowitt Wells, had proved him to bo
in the wrong and told hiin so.
"It was nothing much," Bruce continued; "and Dudley hud mado it all
right afterwards, but one of his 'eon-
founded headaches' had come on, and
he had been fit for nothing all the
morning; aud it had not improved
him, when, on their way through the
village, that 'ass of a Leslie Undor*
wood,' like a blunder-headed puppy us
he was—had the impudence " here
Bruco used a vory strong word, "to
condole with him on the shameful wny
Hiss Vivian hud treated bim. It is
bad enough for a fellow to be jilted,
without being pittied by a consummate
idiot like Leslie. 1 shook my fist .at
him when he hnd turned the corner, I
can tell you."
"Much harm tlint did him; but how
did poor Dudloy take it f
"Very hudlyj ho turned quito whito
at first, and then just lifted his hat
and walked awny, leaving Leslie gaping
and staring in the middle of the road
liko a lost calf, nnd serve lum right
too!" and here, with another forcible
expletive, Bruco nodded good-bye, and
ran off.
Dudley wus not in the dining-room
when I returned to it, and Hester,
who was clearing the tablo, told mo
she thought ho und gone to lie down
somewhere, so I went into the drawing-room, and sat down to my letter.
The privilege of reading Keith's let-
tors to his mother was very precious
to me; vory often they were the unrestrained outpouring of his heart to hor,
the history of his inner lifo, with all
its loneliness, troubles, nnd privations,
its failure of hope} its weary patience,
its hours of heme-siokness, and often
my cheek burnt with its sweet, dim
allusions to oue constant idea, ns it did
at the following passage:
"lt is useless to hide from you,
mother, that as yet nothing but dis
appointment has awaited mc, nnd that
I am as far off as ever from having
my efforts crowned with success,
"As regards business matters, things
look very block with me; instead of
realizing my Utopian dreanw of wealth,
I can barely secure an honest competency; and but for tiie dread of greater
poverty in England. I would take tho
next ship back, and battle out my fate
iu the old country, after all.
"For* ns timo goes on, so do my
yearnings increase for the sight of tho
one dear face—which is England,
homo, everything to me; aud so far
from growing dim, my love waxes
greater from month to month, aud
from year to year, till I sometimes
wonder whether any one ou earth has
loved as I do,
"Mother, will she ever be mine?—
but yet yuur words give me hope, and
your last letter filled me with a flood
of new happiness, for I know now that
she loves me, nnd that whilo I work
and struggle those hundreds of miles
away, my Nellie bub in hor quiet home,
watching, and waiting, and looking for

Thrice had I perused tho foregoing
sentences with flushed faco and beating heart, and thrice I paused over the
words—"Your last letter filled
with a flood of new happiness."
Oh, Keith! oh, soft-heartod and.
treacherous Aunt Margaret! thus to
betray my girlish confidences to tho
only ear not meant to receive them!
And ns I remembered thnt last twilight conversation, and tho incautious
words I uttered, well might tho blush
grow deeper and deeper from conscious
shame, till my cheeks seemed to tingle
again, and I cried out, half aloud,
"Oh, perfidious Aunt Maggie, how can
I ever talk to you again?"
I was Bitting thus absorbed in
thought, with my fingers half-touch*
ing, half-caressing the letters traced on
the pago bofore me, when tho sudden
report of a pistol rang through the
houso, followed by a piercing scream,
and in n moment I wns nt the foot of
tho stairs; but there my limbs, numbed
with horror, refused to move, and for
some seconds I underwent tho oppression of n nightmare, neither able to
go backward nor forward, and perfectly speechless, ns if paralyzed.
Tlio distinct tones of Dudley's voice,
however, recalled me to myself, und,
clinging to tho banisters, I dragged myself up-stairs, and opened the nursery
door, scarcely knowing what horrible
sight might await tno there.
An instant's glance made all clear,
Charlie was standing in the middle
of the floor, white as death, aud trembling violently; while Halcot, scarcely
less pale, was turning over with hiB
foot a large horse-pistol that I recognized as Bruce's property, that' had
been suspended for years over his bedroom mantel-piece; and Dudley, looking almost ns ghastly as tho boys, was
holding his baby-Bister in his arms,
and striving to soothe hor loud and
distressing cries, whilo ho endeavored
to ascertain whether the deadly weapon
had harmed her or not,
Without looking nt the unhappy culprit, I knelt down by his side and
assisted hiin in Iub examination.
"See here, Nellie!" he exclaimed in
horror—seo hero! Oh, hush, baby
dear, your erics eat into my heart."
And then, with shaking hand, he
showed me whero the bullet had
whizzed post the ear, carrying with it
a little scrap of hair.
"One half-inch more — just oue
small half-inch moro-and nothing
would havo saved her. Do you henr,
you wicked boy! nothing but a merciful Providence has preserved you from
killing your little sister, and making
you a murderer!"
"Oh, Dudley!" cried Halcot, appalled by this view of the subject, "ho
did not know it was loaded."
How was he to know it was not,
sir? How dare you try to exculpate
his disobedience?" demanded his brother sternly.
"Was it not enough for you, you
wicked, heedless boy, that you have
nearly burnt down our house from
wanton carelessness nnd disobedience,
and now you have just escaped destroying your own sister! do to your
room, sir, and don't let me soo your
face ngain till I havo determined how
to best punish you. Gentle mothoda
have but failed, and now wo will try
the other means. Let him be by him
solf," he continued, turning from the
trembling child, "I forbid any communication with him. until such time
ns I think proper to give leave."
