RITISH   COLUM
VOLUME 22
NEW   WESTMINSTER, B. C, WEDNESDAY, DECEMBER 13, 1882.
NUMBER 47
jmrliametitnry vote larwtnr;. Tlie
question which it most concerns the
people now to have answered is not
"Who obtained the appropriation 1"
but, "Wlioso fault is it that tlio
amount lias not been expanded!"
Victoria Board <il Tiwle.
In tbe Colonist we Hnd an address
from tbo Victoria Board of Trad'1,
wrongly styled the "British Coliim
bia Board of Trade." The docn
ment was addressed and intended lo
have been presented to His Excel
lenoy tbe Governor-General, but His
Excellency, politely declining to receive it in tlmt sense, undertook to
transmit it to "the proper authorities," viz., the Privy Council at Ottawa. The address sets ont with a
sort of apology for the assumption
of the title, "British Columbia Board
of Trade"—"being tbe only iustitn
tion in the Province representing
the commercial interests of this
western section of tho Dominion."
The perusal of the body of this document atfords us very great satisfaction, chiefly becauso we find it in
such i-efreshing contrast with provi
ous emanations from tho same
source—so happily free from that
spirit of sectionalism which has so
often marred former utterances of
that body. It touches upon many
of the important questions demanding federal attention, and we havo
much pleasure in admitting that the
subjects are generally presented in a
fair and impartial way. For instance, while strongly insisting upon
daily mail communication between
Victoria aud Puget Sound, thoy "respectfully urge that increased postal
facilities be extended to the Mainland and the East Coast of Vancou
ver Island." While, however, complimenting tho body upon tlie gene
l-al tenor of the address, there is ono
point On which wo fear issue must
be joined. We refer to the clause
which pi-oposos handing over to Victoria^ complete monopoly of pilotage affairs; but hero is a Sold snili-
ciently large and important for many
articles, and we shall not, therefore,
enter upon it at this time.
Turning from the address to the
Annual Report of the samo liody, an
epitome of which is nlso found iu
the Colonist, we regret that less
pleasurable feelings are evoked. Perhaps it would he scarcely fair to
udgo the Report by the epitome be-
'ore us; but as the council have no-
fjectcd to supply us with a Copy of
Ihe Report, they must excuse us for
inimadvertiug upon a matter of fact
wliich cannot have been materially
.fleeted by the process of opitomiz-
ng. Referring to tho subject of re-
itricting nnd regulating the fisheries,
ihe Report says;—"A committeo was
' appointed and an able report on
' ths subject was drafted and print-
1 ed in pamphlet form, and issued
' to tbe members of the board. Jn
1 consequence of this action hy tho
' board, tbe Dominion Government
' have placed a sum of $4,0(10 on
'the estimates, for establishing a
' hatchery upon the Fraser." Now
dthough one naturally experiences
6ms hesitation about entering into
' disputation respecting .a point of
his kind, w. feel that we cannot, in
amnion justice to thu Member form's District, refrain from exposing
he awkward error into which tlie
loard of Trade has fallen. It is to
ir, Homer, ably assisted by Senator
tfolnues, that the country is indebt-
for the oircumstanco of $4,000
aving been placed on the Estimates
ir the purpose of establishing a
rtohery on tbe Lower Fraser. It is
testionable whether the rccum-
endations—some of them extreme-
absurd, as we pointed out at the
mo—of the Board of Trade were
•csent to the minds of Ministers at
when yielding tn the earnest aud
portunate solicitations of our
presentative. But ono feels tho
licacy of discussing this subject all
more in View of the fact tlmt
ire seems every probability of the
Who's Who l
On Wodneaday wo hnd a glimpse nt
the origin nnd history*of Arabi Pasha.
Tho Gront False Prophet of Soudan
now comes under view. Not only is
his history, liko that uf-Arabi, associated with America, but ho and his
prinoipal wife are nal ives of the United
States of America, lt wns seen tlmt
Arabi was of plebeian origin. Tlie
Great False Prophet and liis head wifo
nre tho immediate descendants of
American Blnves! In tho earlier part
of tho prosont cantury n largo cargo of
slaves dirout from the Arabic speaking
regions of northern Africa was secretly
landed near Yorktown. This cargo
was doliverod to agontB, and thus 800
intelligent Mohammedan light-skinned
Africans wero distributed among tho
planters of eastern Virginia, Fierce
as untamed tigers, theso wild followers
of the Prophot of Mecca gavo tho slave
owners moro trouble than any other
800 bondsmon south of Mason and
Dijifiivs lino. Many of them 03eaped
to the North, and thoir descendants
live iu Fayotto county. Among these
escaped Mohammed-vis woro George
Johnson and wifo. George's ronl
name was ltoynt.h El Aflewnh, He
was a sheik and ['Heat of thu Order of
lliinii. For several years hu lived iu
the mountains hoar Ooiiiiullsvillo, but,
fearing rociiptnri', went to Canada. Iu
1850 ho ruturned to Pennsylvania nud
settled in Union town. In 1854 he removed tn Urowmvillo. and subsequently to Pittsburgh, whero ho died iu
1877 at a voir/ advanced age. Iu 1830,
while at Oounellsvillo, hi.1 sou Thomas
was burn. , Atthotige of 10 Thomas
had learned the Koran from his father.
No lurrotod mosque ronred its massive
walls, no boarded Muo;izin called the
evslavo ami his family to worship, but
lioynsh El Aaewidi never forgot,
"Thero is but one God, and Molinm-
med is his Prophet," and iu a land of
Cliristinn strangers socrotly adhered to
the faith of his fathers. In 1849 Thomas Johnson drifted to California, to
return to Uiiiotitown. Two yoars later,
in 3853, ho went to Paris and joined
the French army. Hu was sont to
Algiers at tho close of hia term of service. Ho joined a caravan and crossed
Sahara southward into Soudan. For.
several yoars ho lived among tho natives of that almost inaccessible region.
With his almost perfect mastery of tho
Koran and his superior knowledge of
tho arts of civilization, and especially
of war, he forged to tho. front as a
leader. In 18U2, when ho hoard of
tho war of tiio rebellion, tired with an
ambition to hulp'froo tho slaves of the
South, ho wrote a long lottor to President Lincoln offering to recruit a thousand Arab zouaves for tho Union army
if the United States would furnish
transportation. Tho letter got into
the newspapers, and whs published as
a great juke, In 18(15 ho returned,
just as tlio" war closed, nnd visited
Connellsvillo, Unioutown, Browm-villa
and then Pittsburgh, to see his aged
father. Iu August ho returned to
Egypt, nnd thence to Syudan, whero
ho acquired a greater infiiionce tlmu
over over tho semi-civilised people of
that extensive country, nnd claimed
prophetic powers. As timo rolled on
his wealth and power increased, and
when the English invaded Egypt he
proclaimed himself Iniiiu Mahdi, or
the last prophet Allah shall send to
conquer tho enemies of Islam and rule
slipromo ovor the world, Whilo Arabi
Pasha was sullbring defoat, rumor lias
it that the False Prophet was achieving extraordinary victories und slaying
thousands of his foes. According to
Mohammedan belief Iniuu Mahdi is to
como with great signs and wonders just hefore tho judgment day. He
will appear 011 a milk-white charger,
accompanied by an innumerable army
of bearded Mussulmans, all mounted
on snow-white Btailions. Tiie Iinail
Mahdi must be a visible ruler, with
power nud victory on his sido. If lie
manages to spread the report thnt lie
is killing Jews, Christians, nnd pagans
by thousands, he may ho accepted
most willingly by tho Moslems. Tho
defeat of Arabi, who claimed to fight
for tho cause of Islam, may cause
nil Mohammedans to turn to Johnson ns their coming Prophet, It
mny be added that one of tlio False
Prophet's hundred wives is a native of
Fayette county, nn octoroon froni
Uniontown. Sho accompanied him tu
Mecca and to Africa iu 18G5, and is
said to bo the mistress of his harem.
She, too, is a direct descendant of the
Arabs of tho slave ship of Yorktown.
Sho still writes to her relatives in
Pennsylvania.

Constltutlonal Controversy.
The   requisition  (wrongly cnlled
"round robin") asking tbe Lieutenant-Governor to ciuiso tho Legislature to be convened as soon ns possible 'has given vfoo to 11 great deal of
newspaper discussion, some of whieh
ia scarcely indicative of very profound knowledge of constitutional
practice.    It   is asserted  tlmt tlie
document in question wns taken to
tbe Lieutenant-Governor, who not
only refused  to  receive it but felt
personally insulted  by being so approached* that it was finally placed
in tbe bands of the Provincial Secretary witli a request that it might
'come before the Gorernor-in-Gouncil;
and tlie public are left in doubt as
to the fute of   ''poor cock-robin."
Whereupon tho organs join in pronouncing   the wholo  proceeding a
most flagrant exhibition of ignorance
and impudence, and   eagerly seize
npon it as affording   inoontostible
evidence of tbe utter unfitness of the
members of the Opposition to constitute a Government.   Thoy proceed
to descant learnedly upon constitutional  law, contending broadly tliat
the Governor can only listen to and
act upon the advice of his Ministers
in this as in all other matters, that
"the members-elect nre simply members-elect" and Imve no status or
right to be heard; and an anony-
■mous writer in  the leading organ
(pevbnps the most sensible of the
lot) says it seems incredible that the
leader   cf   the   Opposition   should
have, by publishing the document,
proclaimed   his   ignorance   to   the
world.   Looking at the mutter as an
abstract theory, some of theso writers are quite correct in their exposition X)f constitutional practice,   Tbe
Governor only acts upon the advice
of bis Ministers, who are responsible to the people; and, consequently,
he "can do no wrong,"   Such is undoubtedly tho genius of .Responsible
Government.    But thoso who adopt
that line of argument in tho present
<6ase bave not looked under the surface.   They, possibly wilfully, overlook the fact  th-tt it is not now a
question of ordinary constitutional
practice with whieh we havo to dent.
It  is   one of   those extrnotdinar/
■emergencies which are possible under
Reiponsible  Government, and   for
which  the constitution happily provides   a   specific remedy.   It will
bardly be denied  that, in certain
emergencies, the   people have the
right of petitioning  tho Queen, or
tho Queen's representative.    Surely
if the people possess this right, their
freshly chosen representatives cannot
well be donicd it.   The present situation may be briefly stated thus:—
The Governor  is   in   great doubt
about his Ministers possessing the
confidence of a majority of tlie newly elected House, and he must consequently feel  that he would not be
justified in acting upon their advice
longer than is absolutely necessary
without having these doubts set at
rest by the ever available constitutional test—a vote of tho House.
Now, how is this test to be applied!
The Ministers are not likely to advise its early application, nud thereby hasten their own execution.   On
the contrary, their every effort is to
postpone   as   long as possible the
meeting of a House in wliich tbey
know right well they are in a minority.   If, thereforo, the Governor be
really and absolutely shut in by tlie
constitution to acting only on tbe
advice of these Ministers, what is
there to hinder theso men holding
on to office for months, nay, for that
matter, for years, without meeting
the House, and thus completely subverting and  trampling under toot
the fundamental principles of Responsible    Government?    Nothing,
They simply refuse to ndviau the
Governor to convene ths Legislature,
and, if be can only act on thoir nd-
advjee,  the Legislature cannot bo
convened.    Unless, therefore, there
be   soffle   remedy,   some   inherent
power in tbe Governor, our boasted
Responsible Government is a lamentable failure. But there is that power.
It is just here where tho "latent pre-
• regative" of the Crown comes' in to
save tbe constitution. Themerest tyro
in constitutional law must be aware
tUtthe-Got Jrnorpossesesthe powor
of dismissing his Ministers; and, ns
the greater inel.ii.es tlie less, ho undoubtedly has tho power to insist
upon the Legislature being consulted. Of course tho Governor must
always bo his own judge as to how
far circumstances would justify the
exercise of that prerogative. There
nre many sober thinkers who are of
opinion that circumstances would
lmvo justified the absolute dismissal
of tliese Ministers long ago. No
well-informed, candid person can
doubt that tho Governor would be
fully justified in insisting upon an
early session, Indeed most peoplo
believe it is his duty to do so. It
must be obvious from tho foregoing
remarks that should tho Governor

lie himself in doubt and desirous of
ascertaining popular opinion upon
tiio subject, he not only has the
right, but from the very nature of
tilings, must seek information from
outside sources, not from his adverse
Ministers. And from what source,
we should like to know, would it he
more natural, proper and constitutional to seek it than from tho barometer
of public opinion, the people's newly
chosen representatives? So far, therefore, from the Opposition having exposed their ignorance of constitutional law ami practice, the very reverse
is the case. It is the Ministers and
tlieir organs who have been exhibiting ignorance. They have proved
themselves to bo possessed of a very
superficial knowledge of the genius
and working of the fundamental
principles of our constitution; and,
worse still, they have had tho temerity, tho audacity lo attempt to
cast ridicule upon those who havo
shown an intelligent familiarity and
acted in strict conformity with those
principles.. Ilut wo are reminded
that, in so far ns convincing them of
their error is concerned, wo have
been only wasting ink and space.
The soundest argument will produce
no moro conviction in an empty
head than tlio most superficial declamation;, as a feather and a guinea
fall with equal momentum in a
vacuum.

The Btreugth of tho Gladstone Government became more apparent than
ever during the Inst days of the session.
Indeed, the Opposition may almost'be
aaid to have collapsed towards the last.
They admitted that the Government
curried their measures of procedure
substantially as presented. Gladstone
was conciliatory, but firm as a rock.
It remains to bo Been how tho new

Tho iittor ihdifierence displayed by

cay mark the public works. In common witli theso, tho ferry at Lilluoct
has beon allowed to go to ruin, nnd
very serious inconvenience is tlie result. Tliis shameful neglect on tho

The origin of this institution ia moro
than ordinarily interesting. A friend
of tho Rev. Mr. Uorluck said to him
somo months ago, "If anything can
occur to you that you think will ho for
Iho well-being of Yalo let mo know
and I would liko to aosiat." And he
did "assist"' right nobly,—giving the
hiiiidsumo sum of $1,000 towards
founding an institution which it was
believed would most contribute to tho
"well-being of Yale." It ia on the
cards to eatubliah a "coffee bar" in
connection with tho reading-room,
and, ua more funds will be needed,
thero is thus presented un opening for
well-to-do porsons to imituto on a
smaller scale the noble example of thu
unknown founder. The enterprise
must commend itaolf to the judgment
und huarts of all right-thinking persons, and it ahould not bo allowed to
languish for lack of funds.

it exhibits in a bold line tho Canadian
Pacific Pailwny as laid down and now

California's Harvest.
California' would appear to Imve
been blessod with bountiful tr ps this
year. In a carefully written arlicloon
the subject, the San Francisco Bulletin
says:—"If an accurate account were
kept of evory item, it is probable that
tho value actually taken off the land
iu this one State, exclusive of mining
and lumber, would go close to a hundred and fifty million dollars." Is it
not wonderful? Less than twenty
yenrs ngo California was only valued
on account of its famous gold mines.
As nn agricultural country it was generally regarded as utterly worthless,
Now its agricultural productions are
worth a hundred and tifty millions a
year!

renltenlisirj Enqnlriv-
It "may bo within tho recollection of
llio reader that, ut tho assizes held iu
this- city about a year ago, a statement
was made by one of the convicts to
tlio effect that everything was not ns it
ought to bo within tho walls of tho
penitentiary, aud, inter alia, alleging
that favoritism was shown towards
tliose convicts belonging to the Roman
Catholic denomination, The Warden
.immediately expressed to tho Court a
desire for a thorough investigation,
and Hia Lordship (Mr. Justice Gray)
stated that such representations would
ho made in the proper quarter as
would, ho hnd no doubt, result in
such- investigation being held. As
will be seen From an advertisement in
another column, Hon. Mr. Trutch
has been commissioned and instructed
to hold the enquiry, and it will bo
commenced at 10 o'clock this morning,
at tho penitentiary, when all persons
having any information to impart relative to tho matter nre specially requested to attend. Although-not so
stated, we presume tho Court will
bo open to tho public. Indeed, if We
are not mistaken, the desire that, tho
enquiry might be open and dhovo-
bourd was expressed in tho Warden's
request, and endorsed by tho Judge's
approval. Considering the peculiar
nature of llm oomplnint, there can bo
no question that it would ba the true
policy to hold lhe enquiry openly.

of the damayea and costs arising out
of iho Florence affair. Presumably

the colony to pay lhe claims, amount-
inn to £8,400 sterling, (IJopulm* opinion rnn strongly against tlio proposition, nnd the whole body of tho people
appear to be united against the Goy-
erniiieut--not fully resdjiitsihlo to the
peoplo — and deferhiinett tii oppose
what is very generally regarded as an
imposition. In the Legislative Council the unofficial members made violent
speeches, aud, by a vote of niuo to
six, carried a resolution to tho effect
that one-hnlf of the amount-should be
boruo by thu colony, the other half by
the Imperial Govern men t; After carrying the vote*, the iinollieial members
resigned, aud although popular cluinoi*
was iigauist any part of the amount
falling upon the colony, tho action of
Ihe unofficial numbers would appear
to meet with very general 'approval,
and a public banquet had been tendered to thorn. Mean while excitement
reus high, flaming placards are to be
seen on evory wAll| indignation meetings are held, ami an onprmous petition
to tho Imperial Parliament is to be

the eccentricities of this man are not

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER XI.
"woo*D an' married an' V."
fOontlnuwl.)
-Sir Buucan smiled, but did not reply; he certainly did not expect this
particular woman to agree with him,
and willingly allowed tho talk to return to the pleasant channels in which
it had flowed at first. It did indeed
seem as though nothing had occurred
to overcast that brilliant weddin-z-day.
From the rosy dawn to the lirelit night
everything had gone smoothly; and
just as smoothly, as far as on-lookere
could tell, tho life of the young husband and wife might run.
Who would have thought that a tiny
cloud, that was beginning to arise in
the far East, would by-and-by overshadow it—a cloud tliat hung over a
fort end a palace, where a sullen potentate was nursing disappointment and
■MMh.-t
CHAPTER XII.
TIKDIKO   HIS   LEVEL.
'QrMft as was the blank Muriel's departure had left at Inverallan Hall,
she was almost moro missed at the
manse. Sir Duncan would see her
•gain soon, could follow her in her
wanderings if he chose, would receive
almost daily her happy letters, but for
"mamsie" there were no such consolations. When her heart was*heavy nnd
her eyes sore with weeping over hor
husband's stern avoidance of her boy's
name; when she longed with a sick
longing to see him again, or trembled
at the inevitable parting when he must
go abroad, there was no sound of a
cheery voice, no bright young face
peeping in at tlie window, no warm
-kiss to comfort her loneliness, new
tliat Muriel was gone.
She began to feel old —old and
'weary,' and she would walk slowly of
an afternoon to the little yow arbor at
the end of the garden, from which sho
could see the friends of her youth, the
distant Highland hills among which
she had dreamed her earliest dreams.
Here she would sit for hours, watch-
■iiyj while the broad sunlight lit up
•masses of crag and wooded slope and
heathery moor—watching while the
blue shadows gathered nnd tho swift
shower drifted across the peaks or tho
evening colors deepened, and orange
clouds barred tho sky behind the purple crests. Then the minister would
come to the door, calling imperiously
as a man will who wants his tea and
finds no woman in the accustomed
corner; and she would rise and return
to the house, a little more quickly,
perhaps, as though she had gathered
strength in tliat time of quiot communing, and with a patient face she
would pour out tho tea, and bear Tier
part in the talk of the hour.
Her patience smote her husband,
ter he knew that she suffered. He
talked, therefore, of books and opinions that of old would have interested
her, thinking to do what he could for
tier, and tu persunde himself that no
more was due from him, sinco he could
nut go back from his word about their
son. And she listened and know that
aha was thinking all the while of Ronald, and that her husband's dogmatism
■had been tried and found wanting
when she needed help and comfort.
Farther, with the strange intuition
that belongs to thoso tlmt love, even
though love be hidden for a whilo behind a cloud of misunderstanding or
•difference, each was aware of tho other's Btate of mind, aud knew of the
mutual knowledge.
Life was a soro perplexity at the
manse in theBe days, and as yet there
was no sign of clearer understanding.
Konald had written to his mother soon
nfter Sir Duncan had seen hiin in
Edinburgh, and his letter brought her
comfort; but though her husband- had
read it, and she, eagerly watching him,
had seon the quickly restrained interest in his face, his words, as he returned it tn her, crushed the hopo that was
rising in her heart.
"He'll have tu how his proud spirit
now. He'll find that liberty is not included among the pomps and glories of
war."
"Perhaps that will be good for him;
but oh, James, you'll come and soe
Mm —our bey?" said the mother,
pleadingly.
"No, wife. I at least will not go
back from my" word. Ho was to me
a chosen plant—we need not talk of
that—he has refused a great part in
life, has turned his back wilfully on
the work in which he might have toiled fur the right, and has given himself
to a profession fit for godless idlers.
It would not be fitting that I should
visit him, unless, indeed, ho repents of
hia ehoict. He is no longer as a son
to me."
This had been the minister's doci-
■ion, which no persuasions would indue* him to alter; therofore his wife
had ceased to argue, and in her long
hours of solitude had determined to
bo, for onco, mora mother than wife,
and to go and see her sun by herself.
But when she wrote to Ronald- innocent, poor soul, of the details of his
life—to propose that he should meet
her at the railway-station and spend
the day with her, he answered by return of post, begging hor not to como.
"If I happened to be on duty I could
not come to see you at alt," he wrote,
"and I am uot used yet to my livery,
and should not like to walk about the
town with you, where, perhaps, we
might meat some of my father's
friends. I am not ashamed of myself,
understand, but I should bo ashamed
lor you."
At present he was only feeling the
inevitable hardships of his position.
He hated the daily drills, the monotonous duties which he could nut yet
discharge with mechanical indifference;
he disliked the incessant inspection,
and waa sometimes bitterly amused,
but more often angry, at the paramount importance of trifles. There
were days when he could havo burst
Into ironical laughter at the serious
countenances of tho officers as thoy inspected belts and buttons, detecting
with severe eyes if a fold were misplaced, or a belt a quarter of an inch
ont of iti place.
The barrack life, the constant eon-
tact with- his companions, the rough
meals, the lack of privacy, disgusted
him, and many a time did he regret
that he had rejected Sir Duncan's offer
to buy him his discharge. The only
possible ameliorations to his lot would
oe, first, to go abroad, and, secondly,
to do his best to obtain promotion.
He saw that the sergeants wore, as a
rule, far more polished and educated
than he had expected, and he resolved
that at the earliest possible date he
Would rank among them.
This resolve onco taken, his will
bent on learning his work, lie soon attracted the attention of his superiors,
and was marked as a man likely to get
ori. Happily for him, good non-commissioned officers were much wanted,
and in six months he had his first
stripe upon his arm.
Instantly he wrote to his mother,
and fixed a day for her to come to
Edinburgh,
' 'I have made my first upward step
to-day, mother, and now I should not
caro though all tlio folk you know woro
to meet us, since a man who does his
best in any sort of work may fairly
look any other man in the face. I
have done mine, and as I get on I behove I Bhall grow fond of my profession.
To jVfrs. Bennett mucli of this letter
was unintelligible; to her one soldier
was the same as another, and Bhe could
not understand the grades and their
distinctions. Ronald, however, was
contented, and that was enough for
her, and she prepared gladly fer her
trip.
"James, I'm going to Edinburgh on
Wednesday," said she that evening as
'thoy sat at tea.
"Are you? Is that arranged?" he
asked.
"Yes, there's ^the letter. You can
have no objection now—ho is doing
his best; will you not come with me ?
"Ho docs not invite me, and I told
you boforo I would not do it. Go
yourself. I cannot expect more fortitude from you. Go, and—wife—see
if he wantB for anything. It would be
right to do what we can for the lad
now, in the way of any Bmall sum."
"Thank you, James,'1 replied Marian, grateful for this first sign of softening, and hopeful that it might bo the
precursor of a gentler mood.
As tlio train on Wednesday morning
drew up at the platform Mrs. Bennett
looked out eagerly. A tall fitruro in
tartan and white jacket came quickly
forward, and with a rush of mingled
feelings she recognized her son. He
was greatly changed in nppearance—
he had grown and improved iu lo'tks
drill and discipline had set him up,
and transformed him from a boy to a
man. So far she could not but be
pleased and proud of him, but it was
hard to reconcile herself to the uniform, which wits to her a badge of ro
straint and banishment from home.
It seemed to her a dreadful thing
that ho should havo no room of his
own into which he could take her for
a quiet talk. She must either go to
the expense of hiring a sitting-room at
a hotel or content herself with such
privacy as was afforded by a corner
table in one of the confectioners' dining-rooms. She chose the lutter, for
as it was still early there would be but
few people, and she went, with a certain shy consciousness upon her, to
ono that alio was accustomed to fro-
quont on the rare occasions when Mr,
Bennett had brought her to town.
As Bhe entered the shop, and was
passing through to tho dining-room,
the girls behind the counter looked up
at Ronald, and after a moment's hesitation one of them came forward.
I think you'vo mado a mistake,"
she said; "we don't usually have soldier's in horo."
Ronald flushed scarlet, and stood
for a second, too much taken aback te
reply; but his mother turned round.
"I think you are making a mistake.
I have been here often before—I am
Mrs. Bennett."
"Oh yes, ma'am, I remember you."
"This is my son," said Marion, with
the dignity of a woman who defends
tho man who belongs to her, oven
though her pride be hurt.
"Oh, indeed," said the girl, half
supercilious, half embarrassed; "of
course I didn't know, ma'am-—it's not
that we object, but there's many people mightn't like it."
"I presume if a soldier behaves like
a gentleman they cannot object," said
Ronald, recovering himsolf; "You can
hardly select your customers. Let us
go on mother.'1
Well, ma'am, if any thing's said it
will not bo my fault—I've no wish to
disoblige," said the girl; and mother
and son went into the dining-room,
and took their places at u table in tho
farthest corner of the room.
Mrs. Bennett was trembling as she
sat down, her quick temper was iirod,
her sensitive pride stung- by this
harsh evidence of her boy's social fall.
There flashed upon her mind a dny,
one of many, when she had watched
him sleeping in his crib, and, looking
at his broad brow and well shaped
head, had indulged in dreams of somo
great future in store for him. Sho
had dreamed of him as a scholar, an
author, perhaps a great preachor, and
here he sat before her in a uniform
that exptmod him to insult,
Mother-Like sho bent forward to
comfort him, laying hur thin hand on
his, "My boy,-how well you look I do
not let that woman's stupidity vex
you."
"On the contrary, it is giving me
new idoos, mother. If folk are really
so illiberal as to dislike a uniform that
has been worn by men quite as good
aa thoy, it's timo to take the matter up,
and force them to respect it."
"But, my dear, soldiers are so often
rough and unpleasant,"
"Of course—the good suffer for the
bad—that iB to bo expected. But I
think I'll make nn experiment; I'll
lunch at all the dining-rooms in Edinburgh, and publish tho result. Now
lot us talk of other matters, and not
waste our precious time together.
Tell me about Mra. Leslie's marriage."
"I sent you a paper—did you not
get it?"
"Oh yes, but I want to know all
that you can tell me, and that the
paper can't tell."
Mrs. Bennett proceeded to comply
with his request, and thon passed on
to the topics most interesting toher:
Ronald's reasons for his flight, what
he had done with himself at first, why
ho had enlisted, and a hundred other
matters on which she had touohed but
lightly, if at all in hor letters.
