■current Events ana Opinions.
The following extrapt£'from tho
letter of a journalist who hus just
completed a " tour through eleven
English counties," will be read with
especial interest by those whose
acquaintance with the Mother Country ceased a couple of deciles siuoe :
"The thing that has impressed itself upon our minds is the increasing comfort iu England. Twenty
years have mode a remarkable
change, even in the cottage lifo of
the country. In the remotest hamlets the strains of'the harmonium—
generally the harmonium, not the
piano — came from rooms which
seemed too small to hold both an
instrument and a table, In tiie
poorest cottage evidence of a higher
taste in art, of greater refinement,
of a growing appreciation of beauty
was to be found. The old horrible
picture is gone. Its place is taken
by good engravings, or (in some
cases) by really well-designed colored
pictures taken from advertisements.
The laborer has, no doubt, a hard
struggle at times ; and in Cornwall,
where ruined mines stand idle monuments of a past industry, the suffering must have been, must still be,
severe. But with all this, there is
none of the feeling about a "lower
class brutalized," of which Mr. Matthew Arnold speaks so often. The
old " lingoes" too aro going out. It
has almost gone from Bucks, We
•did no hear it at Oxfordshire. It
was only partially noticeable in
Somersetshire. It exists as n
"twang" in Devonshire. It is dying out in Cornwall. Tho statement that the mass of the people
know but a few words is lio longer
true as regards any but tlie most remote districts. The vocabulary
now is copious and wide. That
means a good increase of intelligence ; it means reading j it means
intercourse; it sums up in itself tlie
intellectual progress of the past
twenty years."
If the encouragement of the ordinary importation of labor is, in the
eyes of tlie workingman, regret-
able, the encouragement of the contract importation of Chinese labor
is little short of infamous. The
appointment of a commission to
enquire into tlie matter has kept
down expressions of opinion to a
large extent, but if the report of
Messrs, Chapleau and Gray is correctly outlined in the summary recently given to the associated press,
ihe Dominion Government will soon
have as bad a time as tiie working-
men of Toronto can give them, to
say nothing of the reception the report is likely to meet with in Parliament. I can state from personal
knowledge that others besides the
commissioners have been collecting
information on this burning question, and that the statements made
by them will have to be very carefully worded if they are to Burvive
the sifting criticism in store for
them. So strong is the feeling here,
and the same is true of the working-
men of Hamilton, that the political
attitude of tho labor organizations
at tho next election will largely depend on the respective attitudes of
the two parties in Parliament toward the encouragement of miscellaneous 'immigration from Europe
and the toleration of contract immigration from Asia. The essential
right or wrong of the policy assailed
is, of course, another matter.—Toronto correspondence Montreal Witness.

in Now York, is as foul a den as
any in Christendom. - To have an
idea of what British /Columbians
think of it, we have only to repeat
what our own feelings would be if
somo patriots devoted themselves to
rilling Alberta with Sarcee Indians
on the plea that all men are equal.
All men are not equal, and the experiment of introducing Chinese into America has proved a disastrous
and terrible experiment, ■ We havo
a right to be indignant and a reason
to sympathize witli the British Columbians, for we are their neighbors, and what proves a curse to
them will presently become a curse
to us,—Calgary Herald,
A New Anaesthetic.
A new and what promises to bu u
most important dfac6vtfry to tlm medical profession was recently' made
through pure accident by a German
student, who had occasion to experiment with hydrochlorate of cocoaina.
Getting somo by accident in his eye,
ho was amazed to find that it caused
the surface to become insensible to all
feeling. A few days since thia anras-
thetic waa tried by a prominent oculist
of this city, wbo had occasion to perforin an operation for tho removal of
a cataract from a woman's eye, and
with the greatest success.
Her eyelids were held wide open,
and four drops of tho liquid were
cautiously dripped upon the surface
of tho eyes. It produced a slight
nnresthotio effect upon the external
coating. After nn interval of five
minutes four drops more wure applied,
which caused the insensible condition
to extend deeper, and after waiting
another five minutes four drops more
were used. After the last application
hud done its work, the sensation of the
eyes was tested, and they woro found
to be so entirely uiiiustliotized that
the very serere and otherwise painful
operation vaa performed without the
slightest pain to the patient. Hydro-
chlorate of coooaine ia tho active principle of cocoa, and cannot bo had in
this country as yot.
An amesthetic that would render a
particular part of the human body
without sensation; and avoid the necessity of using chloroform or ether, 1ms
long been sought, and this new discovery will bo thoroughly tested nnd
experimented with, in the hope that it
may bo found to havo nn effect upon
other portions of the body than tliu
eye.-—Scientific American.

How a Gambler Reformed.
It ia not often men reform after
they get married. They do sometimes. I know a man who really entered into a scheme of practical reform. He had as a single man been
fond of poker. As a measure of economy he made a big bluff nt matrimony.
He thought ho could master the gambling propensity by teaching his young
and blushing brido tho fashionable
frame, and sho entered into it with all
hor heart and soul. The stakes were
beans—coffee beans—plain, innocent
and healthful articles of after-dinner
refreshment.
But, alas! the gambling spirit grew
upon her, and ono fatal, game upset
the happinesss of their lovely home.
He had been honest with her. He
had concealed his deep knowledge of
the game. But there came a time
when he saw his chance and took it.
He stocked the cards. He gave her
four kings and he himself took four
aces. Her eyes glistened. She grabbed half of her pile and put it in.
He put everything he had to it. She
added hers. He went out into the
pantry and, taking a handful of stakea
from the bean repository, threw them
down defiantly. She went to the same
place, seized the cannister, and, returning in wild excitement, turned it
up on the table. Against her four
kings were four' little simple spots.
There was a pause for a moment.
He has had his hair cut'and wears
a piece of plaster where the tin can
struck him, and the lady in waiting
finds coffee beans yet all over the
house,— Philadelphia Chronicle,
The report of' the Ohinese Commission has been given into the
hands of tho printer, and a precious
report it promises to be. What
else could be expeoted if the report
given by the British Columbian papers of the doings of the Commission was correct. The report recommends that no restrictions be
placed upon Chinese immigration
until the railway is completed, and
not then unless better reasons can
be shown for such restrictions. The
report is evidently framed with one
eye on British interests in China,
nnd tho other on the manifest dislike of British Columbia to the Celestial Empire. It is a miserable
Bop to both parties, and totally unsatisfactory in its indeoisive recommendation. It would be better to
stop tho Chinese now than have it a
burning question some years hence,
Al) tho American Pacific States
have protested against the influx of
the debasing ideas, practices and
competition of the Ohinese, In
New York their presence has caused
intense disgust in all the neighborhoods which they frequent Mott
street, wliich is their headquarters

Sixty thousand shingles were made

It may not be generally known
that there is in Canada a lottery in
full operation, known as the "Royal
New Brunswick Lottery," Efforts
have been made to extinguish this
blot upon the fair fame of Canada,
but hitherto wi'hout success. The
Dominion government claims that
it cannot be suppressed under federal law. If this be true, federal
law ought to be extended without
delay.   __mmmm_m__mm__mm_m__9_m
According to Mr. Gisl>orno tho
telegraph receipts in this province
are rapidly increasing. In 1879,
when the Western Union lines
were taken over by the Canadian
government, the receipts were 65,-
300 and tlie expenditure was $46,-
000. In 1883 the expenditure had
fallen to $32,000, while the receipts
had risen to §27,000. It is expected that this year the service
will be self-sustaining.
In the Jamaica legislative cdun-
cil, on the 28th ult., Hon. Mr. Solomon moved " that in the opinion of
this council it will be for the general interests of this island that steps
should be taken for negotiating and
concluding arrangements for a political and commercial confederation
with the Dominion of Canada." After discussion the question was put
and declared lost on a voto of 1 to
8. Hon. Mr. Solomon's vote was
the only one cast in favor of tlie
confederation scheme!
Tlio Victoria Colonial of Friday
republishes the letter from Mr.
Rooney whieh appeared in Tim
Cou'MMAN of Wednesday nnd proceeds to make some comments which
are neither called for nor true. The
lirst statement of The Columbian
was not a "fib," as stated by the
Colonist, and the person alluded to
was not Mr. Rooney, but another
gentleman who had charge of tlie
railway mail. The Columbian is
not in tlio habit of fibbing. When
it makes a mistake it does not decline to rectify the error. In this
case it has made no mistake unless,
through indefinitenesg, it allowed
some people to supposo that Mr.
Rooney was the person referred to.
We could not have boen definite
without mentioning names, which
we did not wish to do. Tho Colonist grabs at this straw in the hope,
apparently, that public attention
may be drawn away from its extraordinary misstatements respecting
the condition of the railway track.
The Minneapolis Canadian-American says: The man does not read
the signs of the times who does
not believe that the Canadian Pacific will soon play a most important part in the arrangoment of
routes und rates for the trade of
tho Pacific coast, Tlio Canadian
line will draw business from American channels all along the international boundary, and at Pacific ports
will compote with all American
lines for east-bound traffic. In a
sense it will obliterate the dividing
line and serve Americans and Canadians alike.
After pointing out that Ohio
gave 40,000 majority for Blaine,
and Pennsylvania 80,000, the Seattle Post says: "We are in favor of
a new geographical adjustment in
this wise: Add to Indiana the western tier of Ohio counties, and annex to New York the northern
tier of Pennsylvania. There is al>
solutely no sense in wasting so
much Republican strength in piling
up majorities in Ohio and Pennsylvania, when those votes could do so
much gootl iu Indiana nnd New
York." A far better way would
bo to devise a mirn honest and sensible mode of electing a president
than that which now exists.. It is
about as stupid as anything could
be.
Not long ago we published an
extract from the Week (Toronto)
which accused Hanlan of crookedness in connection with the championship race. If Hanlan did sell
the race, which we do not believe,
he must have been extremely clever
in deceiving the people. A lato
number of thn Sydney iVews, in
commenting upon the race, says:
"Whether Beach be roally the better man of the two or not, the extraordinary skill, the unflinching
courage, and tlie unswerving honesty of Edward Hniilnn will render
him hereafter the most conspicuous
figure tho sporting world has up to
this day ovor known—au object
alike of prido and admiration to
the race from which he sprang,"
Although Japan's natural interests might prompt her to nn alliance
with China in the present struggle,
her statesmen have wisely resolved
to maintain a position of strict neutrality.     Ifc  is   well known that
Japan is rapidly advancing in civilization, and has lately taken preliminary steps towards tho formation of a government in which the
people will have a voice.   It is believed   also   that she will shortly
develop a scheme for greatly changing  the   commercial treaties now
existing between her and the principal nations of Europe,     In view
of this she gives evidence of wisdom in refusing to be drawn into
the  Franco - Chinese   war.     Her
trade  with China is considerable,
but  although  that trade will bo
seriously   interrupted,   thero   are
other considerations of a national
character whioh suggest neutrality.
More About Mulls.
It is announced that after this
week the mails between this city
and Victoria will be carried only
twice a week, the mail steamer arriving here on Tuesdays and Fridays. It seems that we uro progressing backwards. Last spring a
daily stoamer was put on this route,
and wo had a daily mail. The reason assigned was that the extra mail
service up river was to be abandoned, and as compensation this
daily service across the gulf had
been established. But the daily
steamer did not pay, aud the daily
mail became a tri-weekly affair, At
this we did not complain, but it
may be remarked that the extra
river service was not restored when
the daily service across the gulf
ceased. It was settled, then, that
there should be a tri-weekly mail
service from Victoria to Nanaimo
and from Victoria to this city, aud
that it should extend up as far tis
tho railway had been completed.
That arrangement would have suited
tlie people ou this side of the river
if the servico liad over boen performed with any kind of regularity
and efficiency. It is found as a
matter of fact, however, that the
railway mail service is badly carried out. The people of .Johnston's
Landing, as well as other places
along the line have frequently
made complaints. Now, Johnston's Landing is .on this side
of the river, convenient to the railway track, and only about 30 miles
from this city. But, if tho railway
mail service has failed to give satisfaction on tliis side of the river, it
has raised a howl of complaint and
protest al! along the south side.
The people on that side of the river
compose some of the largest, most
important and wealthiest settlements iu the district, and when
increased mail services woro being
arranged for titty had a right to
look for some of the benefits. But
the new arrangements by which the
mail service was transferred to the
railway, have proved for them the
merest mockery of a mail servico.
Letters and ncwgpnpers have suffered such frightful delays tlmt
people have been forced to seek
channels other than the mails for
important business communications,
nnd we have been obliged to send
The Columbian to tho principal
settlements by the steamers instead
of making use of the mail, It is
the general opinion of persons living on the river between this city
and Yule that the mail service was
very much better performed by the
steamers thau it has beon by the
railway. This opinion applies to
both sides nf the river, as far as we
hnvo been able to ascertain. Now,
it is generally believed that the service has cost the country a gootl
deal of money, tf.it has beon ati
experiment merely, it has been both
expensive ud disappointing, ns any
peraoii might havo forseen from the
beginning. But it is now to lie
abandoned. With two mails a
week from Victoria to this city, a
tri-weekly service up tho river otto Port Moody would scarcely be
considered necessary. The result
will be that Victoria will rottuuhor
daily mail service from Tacoma and
a tri-inonthly service from Sau Francisco ; Nanaimo will have a triweekly service from Victoria and a
weekly service from this city; whilo
there will bo no service ou auy part
of the mainland more frequent than
twice a week, except betweon this
city and Granville. It seems to
happen always tliat when any retrenchment is to be mndo in the
public service, the mainland must
suffer; but if there are facilities to
be increased, the increase takes
place on Vancouver Island, The
peoplo of this city have more than
once asked for a mail subsidy which
would induce tlie establishment of a
direct line of steamers between this
place and Tacoma. But the request
has been denied upon the ground
that the public revenue would not
justify it. But when the people of
Victoria, already enjoying a triweekly service to Tacoma and a
tri-inonthly servico to San Francisco, asked for a daily service, it
was given. Even Nanaimo is more
highly favored than is this city or
any part of tlie mainland, The
whole postoflice revenue of Nanaimo and tlie other seven offices on
the cast coast of Vancouver Island
was §1;G44 last year; while the
postal revenue of this city alone for
the same period was $3,608. It
cannot be on the score of revenue,
therefore, that Nanaimo gets three
mails a week, while New Westminster is put oft' with two. Nor
can it be on account of importance
or business interests. Nanaimo is
an important seaport, but controls
a comparatively small extent of
provincial trade. New Westminster, on the other hand, is tho port
through which almost the whole
trndo of the mainland passes. New
Westminster has not received fair
treatment from the federal government, and it might uot be amiss if
the citizens would express publicly
their disappointment at this fact.'
Mr, Parpotus Boilcau, Ottawa, says:
"I was radically cured of piles, from
whieh 1 have heen un tiering for over
two months, by the use of Or. Thomas'
fioleptrio Oil. I used it both internally
nnd externally, taking it in small doses
beforo meals and ou rotiring to bed, In
one week I wns cured, and have had no
trouble since. I believe it saved my
Ufa."

Harrison River, Nov. 17.—The
month-of November has oome in liko
a lamb, and wo aru hoping it may continue hi that docile mood to tho end.
The weather at present ia very delightful—warm sunny days and cool
nights, with sometimes a slight white
frost. Mr. John Lodge iB busy fixing
up Mr. J. O, Armstrong's valuable
piece of property known as the Hot
Springs, situated about 8 miles above
Harrison village. Mr. Lodge is now
building a stone wall around the Hut
Springs, where, I believe, Mr. Aim-
strong intends to erect a tiuu bathhouse and othur commodious structures
necessary to the comfort and convenience of the tourists and invalids who
nre expocted to seek thu attractions of
tliis wutering place, Everybody hopes
tin's enterprise will turn out 'a complete success. Railway work around
Harrison Rirer is progressing rapidly.
The steam shovel and locomotive are
kept at work day and night, and this
part of tho road will soon bo in good
running order. Oame haa been unusually scarce about here. Indians now

thoro is very little game of any kind

A Groat Russian Air Ship.
The centenary of the ascent of the
first balloon in England brings us news
that the second trial of tho aeronauts
at Mention hus resulted in failure.
Tlio expectations of those who hope to
steer balloons must now he turned from
France to Russia, where Captain Kosz*
towitz, uf the aeronaut, is quite confident that he has solved the problem by
a balloon wliich is at present being
constructed at St. Petersburg. It is of
tho shape of a huge oigar, driven by a
screw, hut it is also provided with sails.
The inventor calculates that bis ship
will bo able to make 100 miles an
hour, with an equipage of sixteen men,
10,000 pounds ballast, aud an engine
of 50-borso power. The balloon, with
its appurtenances, will be 200 feet
long, 80 feet high, aiid will probably
make its first excursion from St. Petersburg at the end of this mouth. Tho
odds, however, nre n thousand to one
ugainst Captain Koaztowitz.—Pall Mall

Prohibition the Great Issue.
The American people ara getting to
be in dead earnest about the evil effect of unrestricted liquor dealing.
The most significant vote given recently was that in Maine, where there was
a majority of 40,000 for a prohibition
constitutional amendment Maine waa
tho first State to legally discount en*
nuco tho sale of all intoxicating drinks.
A whole generation has grown up under a rigid enforcement of prohibitory
law. After a trial of over thirty years
the people of that State are all but
unanimous that liquor shall not be sold
as a beverage, It is a notable circumstance that, on every direct vote, the
popular will is always against free liquor selling. Whenever the naked issue was presented, aa in Iowa nnd
Kalians, prohibition was adopted by
large majorities. So great is the progress of this feeling that it is morally
certain if a vote were taken for or
ugainst liquor by the whole nation that
the prohibitionists would poll two to
one. In Maine the women stood at
tho polls all day long beseeching the
men to cast their ballots against liquor
selling. Should women ever vote in
this country they would put a stop to
nine-tenths of the liquor selling within
a decado after the*/ had reached the
franchise. Prohibition has como into
tho politics of our country and has
como to stay.—£».
Breaking Away,
Tho Irish-American element in tho
democratic party has always, until the
present year, been relied upon for unswerving fidelity, even in tho most try*
ing hours. It is uow stated, however,
that their party allegiance is greatly
wuakoned since the nomination of Mr,
Cleveland, who, hy largo numbers of
that nationality, is believed to bo inimical to tho workingmau's interests.
A few nights ago an overflowing
Irish-Amorican meeting wns held nt
ono of tho public halls in Brooklyn,
N. Y., which was presided over and
addressed bv Mr. A, E. Ford, editor of
the Irish World. Another speaker was
Judge Brennan, of Iown,who said that
in thu course or recent journeys, from
the Missouri to the Atlantic,"wherever
he went he found the intelligence and
character, the brains and soul of tho
Irish-Amorican people in revolt against
Grovet Cleveland nnd in favor of
James G. Blaine," "There is not,"
.added Judge Brennan, "a township iu
tho west that does uot contain snine
Irish Independents. Iu Chicago 70
per cent, of the Irish-Americans are
tor Blaine, and such ia tho scarcity of
tho enlightened class of Irishmen in
the Cleveland ranks 'that they find it
vory difficult to obtain Irish material
for democratic candidates," The concluding sentence hero must be taken
rather as nu "oratorical flourish" than
nn actual fact, but the evidences nre
around us everywhere that the Irish*
American voter is exhibiting more independence this year than ever heretofore during a presidential canvass.—

The Kozoon (Janadense.
For forty years or more has the
scientific world been agitated from
timo t<i timo ovor the very contrary
controversies arising from the much
maltreated theory of Cuudndittn geologists regarding the assorted discovery
of the oldest known fossil in the world
among tho Laurentian hills of Canada,
During this period in which the world
and men have grown older and perhaps
wiser, there have appeared valiant defenders of the Eozoon Cnnnduiiso, oi
there havejilso been bitter opponents
uud unbelievers of the whole history
intermixed in the disputes. Tho issuo
of present speculations and surmises
will soon, it appears, he cleared ui
und a mystery wliich haa taken nearly
half a century to unravel and expose
bo finally settled. If wo are tn refute
ns incorrect (he written belief of our
most learned scientists, wo must have
sufficient proof offered us from more
competent resources than have thus
far been furnished. The probabilities, during the first investigations,
that Canadians rightly interpreted the
discovery and the contrary arguments
were very satisfactorily explained.
How could wo do otherwise than sanction and believe what diligent research
hud almost demonstrated as a truism
without leaving crack or crevice whereby to withdraw the belief. The most
ardent proof of the truth of tho theory
existed it) the fact that cellular tissues,
laininio, and othor indications almost
conclusive, wero perfectly discernible
under tho microscope of our ablest
geologists and mieroiooplsts that with
the slices were indisputable, and in-
seperable truces of a highly crystallised
fossil. There appeared indeed very
little room for doubt as to the true
origin of theae chambered and tubulated specimens whieh gave every intimation uf their being the organic remains of extinct foraminiferal insects,
Su adequate indeed appeared the proof
of these assertions, that shortly after,
geologists had allayed alt fears of mistaken identity in the many specimen*
examined, by general assent, that
thinkers both in America and Europe
were led to conclude that the contra
arguments were in themselves deficient
and that the supervision which had
beun devoted to investigations in support of the theory were far more substantiating in their particulars. Sir
William Logan in Canada, and Dr. Carpenter of London, were entirely convinced of tho nature of tho "dawn animal" who had erected such stupendous
habitations In thesiluriau seas. Their
vindications were strengthened by
very able demonstration of the accurate truth of the fact. Sir William
Dawson aud Sir Logan,-both delivering to the press exceedingly clear and
conclusive testimony to that effect.
Sir Dawson was led from the results
of labored research to pronounce tho
authenticity ot the facts, in an elaborate essay upon the subject which appeared in book form and whieh waa at
the time declared a masterpiece of
logic, and the studied results uf deep
and profound research. Imagination
is certainly an important factor to the
progress of a work of fiction; bnt this
criticism can hardly attach itself tu the
"Duwn of Life," for oh every page the
author speaks with true conviction,
and employs for his defence no superfluous language or debate. AU the
conclusions are arrived at by able
demonstrated facts, not ou vain theories founded upon a bins of constructed
possibilities of facts, but based upon*
masonry of solid agglomerated corollaries, euch of which waB deduced from
able and lengthened demonstrations,
There was no theorem. The question
was answered not naked. And now,
we are told, more outspokenly thnn
before, that tho whole is a myth, "the
fabrication of vivid imaginations," "the
result of a perplexing essay at investigation without competence," or such
like bantering. Canadians aro anxiously waiting a full explanation of this
important debate. Dr. Carpenter, of
London, and our ablest geologist, aro
at present, we understand, engaged iu
compiling evidence against these at*
tacks. Meanwhile let doubters prepare their objections.—Ottawa Free

Christians are fleeing from the province

the alternative to sacrifice to idols or
leave their homes. They preferred tho
latter. Many women were caught by
the mob and outraged. Twelve Cantonese villages have issued notices that all
Christiana must leave. Fifteen churches
In these villages are already destroyed,
several- stores looted, and many persons

Chinese authorities have boen called to
these acts, they have refused to notice
them. At Kitryrung the mob and soldiers destroyed all the Roman Catholic,

inco of Shantung. The riots began at

mail has been simply enormous. During
the campaign It was large, but has increased fourfold since the election.
While many of the missives are couohed
lu congratulatory terms, others are tliose

threats. Several writers solemnly swear
thnt Cleveland shnll not live to seo another fortnight; others warn hint to he-
ware of plots against his life, und advise
hiin to ride instead of walk to the capital, and have at least four guards at the
entrance to tho executive chamber. Probably Cleveland has aeen none of these
missives, hut If he has It is safe to say
they do not worry him to any great extent.

of English artisans are thus attracted to
America. Lord Dunraven also states
that the trade of Russia, France nud
America for the last seven years hns
been rapidly extending while the trade
of England has been declining. Lon I
Dunraven says the pnrty of protection
and monopoly in America haa been overthrown, but Bright lias supported tlio
Republican party by tongue and pen
since 18(11 and uow in the tirst moment
of bis misfortune and humiliation, he bus
nothing but contemptuous epithets for
it, forgetful that the Democruts of America are as nineh pledged to protection as
the Republicans, This correspondence
has been induced by the Hackney election, which takes place to-morrow, nnd
in which "local option" enters as largely
as "free trade" or as "fair trade,"

written a letter in which ho says tho
Government will require adequate assurance tliat the Franchise bill will be passed hy the House of Lords bofore the
Redistribution bill shall be presented.
This, however, tloes not preclude a
friendly communication between thu
leaders of the two parties beforo such
assurance ia given. Conservative leaders have asked the Govornment tint
such communication regarding tho nature of the proposed Redistribution bill

Great excitement prevails here ovor the
question of the conversion of the English
debt. Knots ot people have gathered
at the streot corners to discuss mattera.
Rumors prevail that the bill to provide
for the conversion will be withdrawn or
defeated. The opponents of the bill
claim tlmtthc extra issue of £2,500,000
authorized over and above the amount to
bo devoted to tho conversion is a "grand
steal," and that Mexico will be unable to
meet the interest.   Crowds gathered in

Gonzales," the out going president. Although tho crowds were unarmed they
were needlessly fired upon by soldiers,
and a few persons were killed or wounded. The crowd in front of the house of
General Diaz, the incoming president,
called for hiin to nppear and state his position, hut he made uo response.
Troops were stationed outside the
Chamber of Deputies this afternoon during the debate on tlie English debt conversion bill. While the discussion was
iu progress shots outside were heard, and
the result was a wild confusion in the
galleries, which was quickly communicated to the body of the house. It was
impossible to obtain order, and the
speaker was compelled to adjourn -the
session. An increased number of troops
patrolled the streets this evening, and
order waa preserved.

from the southwest to the northwest,
stretching away from Foam Bay and the
Height of Laud in the southwest to an
unknown distance towards the East-Main
river and Labrador, The waters swarm
with fish of all kinds, and fur bearing
unimals are abundant. The climate is
agreeable and suitable for agricultural

as large as Lake Superior.

He said the recent election in America
was ono of the most important in the

unnamed. In. tho future economic and
social questions must come to the front
in America,

Berlin states that the agreement is about
concluded between England and Germany, wlicrel y the Congo conference

commission is abandoned. "
Berlin, Nov. 10.-At the meeting of
the Congo conference yesterday the delegate from Portugal read a memoranda
insisting on Portugal's right to Congo,
when John A. Knson, American delegate, replied, pointing out somewhat sarcastically that Henry M. Stanley, in all
his loug jourucys on the Congo had been
unable to discover auy signs of Buch
Portuguese dominion or civilizing influences as were now claimed. He had, in
fact, found everything and everybody
but Portuguese,
Paris, Nov, 19.—Admiral Courbet

Chinese blockade runners w ho compelled
him to make an extension uf his line of
blockade on the coast of Formosa, Thi

London, Nov. 20.—A special dispatch
from correspondents In Egypt writes

IREiAMABLE STORY,
"We welcomo overy horror with delight in consequence—a murder, or
evon a big bankruptcy. I supposo
tlmt is why bankruptcies aro so common," he added, as if struck with tho
idea. "A ma'n requires a groat doal
of original impulso beforo lie will go
tho length of murder. The other hns
n milder but similnr attraction; you
ruin othor people, which shakes them
up, and gives a chango of air."
"Ill-omened words," said Ashton,
laughing, aud throwing out tho forefinger and littlo linger of his right
hand with a play ut superstition.
"Ugly at all times, but especially when
wo are talking of business and tho
Stook Exchange."
"Are you aware," said Edward,
sinking his voico, "that our predecessor before Aunt Catherine did something of the kind?"
"Who wa^he?"
"A certain John Vornon. His wife
lives yonder, with tho rest of Aunt
Catherine's dependent*, in that red
houso. He found it too much for
lum; hut it was a poor sort of a Hash
in the pan, and hurt nobody but himself."
"You would like to do moro than
that," Baid Ashton, with u laugh.
But in Edward's face there was mi
jest.
"I should tike," he said, "if I
broke down, to carry tho whole concern along with me. I should liko to
pull it down about thoir ears as Samson pulled tho temple, you know, upon
hia porsecutors."
"Vernon," Baid Roland, "do you
know that you are very rash opening
out like this to me? Don't you see it
is quite possiblo I might betray you?
I have no right to preach, but surely
you can't have any reason to be so
bitter. You seem tremendously well
oil, I can toll you, to a friendless fellow like ine."
"I am vory well ofl*," said Edward,
with a smile; "no man was ever bettor. I came out of a struggling family, where I was to havo gone to the
colonies or something, My next
In-other got that chance, and hero I
am, John Vernon, so far as I can
hear, was an extravagant fool. I have
not tho least sympathy with that.
Money's a groat power; but as for fine
houses or tine furniture, or show or
dash, as they call it—"
"I told you," snid Ashton, "you
havo no vice."
Edward gavo him a dark, suspicious
look.
"I have even a contempt for it," he
said.
"Thore are plenty of men who have
thnt—a horror, even, nml yot can't do
without tho excitement,"   _
"I prefer your sort of excitement.
John Vernon, as 1 say, wns n fool.
He ran away, poor wretch, and Catherine stepped in, nnd remade everything, and covered him with contempt."
"He is tho father (is ho dead?) of
the—young lady—who is such a favorite with my grandfather."
"Hester? Oh, you know hor, do
you? Oue of Aunt Catherine's pensioners in the Vernonry, as she calls
it."
"It is a little hard upon them tn bo
called dependents; my old pouple livo
thoro. They have their own little income to live upon. Miss Vernon
gives them tlieir house, I beliovo,
which is vory kind, but not enough to
justify tlio nnmu of pensioners."
"That is our way here," suid Edward, laughing. "We nro very ready
to give, but wo liko to tako the good of
it. It is not respectful to call tho
placo the Veriionvy, but we do it. Wo
are delighted to bo kind; tho more you
will take from ua, tho better we will
liko you. Wo ovoti rather like you
to bo ungrateful; it satisfies our
theory."
"Vernon, all that seems to me to bo
diabolical, you know; I wish you
wouldn't. Miss Hester is a littlo of
your way of thinking, I fonv. She
makes it amusing, though. There are
parties, it appears., where Bho stands
all night in a corner, or looks at photographs."
"She Bays thnt, does.she?'' said Edward. His smile had nut been a
fileasaut one, but now it disappeared
rom his face. "And I Buppose alio
tolls you that I never go near her? I
have to look after tho old Indies and
take them to supper. 1 have the
honor of standing in tho position nl
master of the house."
"I don't know that she blames nuy
one," said Ashton, indifferently. "It
is more fun than anger. Talk of want
of air, Vernon—that poor child wants
nir, if you please. She ia as full of
spirit and life as any ono I ever saw.
She would liko to do something."
"Something! What kind of some
thing?   Oo on the stage—or whnt?"
■T have never heard of the stage,
or anything of the kind. ^ She wants
work,'
"Excitement!" Edward said, with
an impatient gleam in bis eyea.
"Sho is liko yon, then," said Ashton,
trying to laugh, but not with much
cordiality, for lie folt himself growing
angry iu spite of himself.
There was oxcitomuul enough now
in Edward Vernon's face. It grow
dark with piseiou imd intolerance.
"A woman is nl togothor different,1
ho Baid, Then, subduing himself,
with a ehange iu his voice frum rage
to scorn, "Sho will soon hnvo it in her
power to cliango all that, Don't you
know she is going to marry Harry
Vernon—au excellent match for her—
money nnd little brains; whereas sho
has much brains und little money—the
very thing in marriage," ho concluded,
with a harih lutigh,
"Is that so?" said A ah ton.
He had boen listening quite at hia
ease, turning his face toward his companion, ami it was n satisfaction to Edward to hou thnt the Btrangor'a countenance clouded over, He was astonished, mid, Edward could not help
hoping, mure than astonished—fur,
boing sore and bitter himself, he
liked to sec nnother feel thosting.
"That's woll," Rolnnd said, nfter a
moment, "if she likes it. I should
not hnvo ijhought— but a week's acquaintance does not show you much nf
a eliaruoter. I nm glad to hear it," ho
said, after a pause, "if she likes it,"
which was but n dubious sort of satisfaction after nll.
Edward lookod at him again with an
expression of gratified feeling. He
was glad to have given his now friend
n little friendly stab. It plensed him
tu see Holnnd wince. Whon ono is
very uneasy one's self, thnt is always
n little oousolatlnit. He looked at
him and enjoyed it, then turned away
from the subject whioh had given liim
thia momentary pleasure.
"Let us return to our muttons," he
snid. "Tell me what you think of
theso papers. I put thom into my
pooket to show you. Now that wo nre
fairly out of sight"—then ho turnod
back to glance along tho still, damn
road, upon wliich thero waa not n
single shadow but their uwn—"uud
nobody cun spy upuu us—fur I distrust windows—we may think of business a little," the yuuug man said.
Ashton looked at him as he took tho
papers with n glance as suspicious as
his own. They had grown into a sort
of sudden intimacy in n single night.
Edward had been exactly in tho stato
of mind to which Roland's revelation
of chances and possibilities was ns
flame to tinder. To havo his impatient
desires .and longings mndo practical
was everything to him; and the pru-
donce and business instinct left in him,
which mado him hesitate to make the
plunge by himself without skilled
guidance, endowed the now • comer
with an importance which nothing else
could have given him. He was at
home in those regions which wero so
entrancing and exciting yet strango to
Edward.
These communications had brought
them to something like confidential
friendship, and yot they ojid not know
each other, and iu many things wore
mutually antipathetic, repelling rather
than attracting, each other. This interview, though it was to seal the connection between thom, made their mutual want of sympathy more apparent.
Edward had shown the worst side of
himself, and knew it. Ho felt even
that his self-betrayal had been so great
os to put him almost in his companion's power, whilo ut the samo time
Ashton had impertinently interposed
in the family affairs (a point upon
which Edward wns as susceptible as any
oue) by what lie had permitted himself
to say about Heater, Ashton, on the
other hand, whoso temper in a way
was generous and easy, regarded the
fortunate possessor of Cathorine Vernon's sympathies with un indignant
astonishment. To have been so taken
up by bucIi a woman, to have hor affection, her confidence, her unbounded
approbation aud trust, and to so repay
her! It was incredible, and tho fellow
was— Should ho fling up all hia pro-
tonse at sympathy with this cub, and
go off at onco, rather abandoning tho
possible advantago than consenting to
ally himsolf with such a being? This
was the point at which they stood for
n moment; but, beside the pull of
mutual interest, how were they ever to
explain the sudden breach, should they
follow their mutual inclination and
mako ono? It would bo necessary to
say something, and what could bo said?
And then there lay before Edward a
world of fabulous gain, of sudden
wealth, of a hundred excitements to
which Roland scorned to hold the key;
mid beforo Holnnd tho consciousness
that not only Edward, but n whole
population of eager country people
ready to put their money into his
hands, and give him such power of
immediate action ns he had scarcely
dreamed of, depended upon his self-
restraint. Accordingly, tho solo evidence of their absolute distrust and
dialike of each other was this mutual
look, exchanged just before they entered upon the closest relations of
mutual aid.
It wns a curious scene fur such a beginning. The solitude of the country
road was complete; thore was no ono
to interrupt them. Although they
were in the freedom of tho open air,
and Biibject to bo overtaken by any
passer-by, yot tho Sunday stillness
was so intense that they might havo
been in tho most secret retirement on
earth. Had they been seated together
in Edward's room nt home, a hundred
disturbances were possible.
Servants can nover bo shut out; if
it is only to mend tho tire, thoy will
appear in the middle of the most private conference. And Catherine horself, all unconscious that her presenco
wns disagreeable, might have come to
the door to summon thom, or perhaps
oven to bring them, with hor own kind
lunula, the cups of tea in winch, iu his
heart, Edward loathed ns one of the
signs of bis slavery. Thoy wero tlie
drink of bondange—those poor cups
that never inebriate. Ho hated even
the fragrance of them —the little
steams ascending. Thank Heaven no
one could bring him tea out upon the
high-road! The chill outer nir, tho
faint scent of mossy damp and decay,
tho dim utinoBphere without a sparkle
in it, the absolute quiot, would have
better suited confidences of a different description. But, if business is
not sentimental, it is at least so urgent
and engrossing thnt it becomes itidif-
ferunt to circumstances.
Tho do-nothing calm of tho Sunday
closed curiously around tho group;
their rustling papers and eager countenances brought thu stranguat interruption of restless lifo into tbo almost
dead and blank quiet. The season,
the weather, the hour, the brown
quiescent fields, in which for the only
moment of the year no mystery of
growth was going on, but only u silent
waiting for the seeds aud the spring;
this day of leisure, when everything
was at rust, all the surrounding circumstances united to throw into full relief the strange center to the land-
scapo— the two figures which brought
a sharp interest of lifo into this still-
breathing atmosphere and waiting stagnation and Sunday calm.
*##*#■»
Roland Ashton had been in little
doubt as tn Ida own motives when ho
came, after ao many yoars' indifference,
to "look up" hia old grandparents, and
tako up Into, yet not too lato, tho traditions of filial duty. Theso traditions, indeed, had no existence for
this young man. His ni other, thu
victim of a dissipated hnpeleaa spendthrift, died when her children were
young, and her fathor and mothor had
stood uloof from all but the earliest
years of the handful of buys and girls
she left behind. Tho children scrambled up somehow, nud, as is not unusual among children whom the squalor of a parent's vico has disgusted
from thoir earliest consciousness, succeeded in doing well; the girls making
much better marriages than could have
been hoped for; tho boys, flung into
tho world on their own account nt a
very early age, finding Uio means of
nmiutaing themselves, and oven pushing forward to a position as good as
that which their father Iind lost, That
father had, happily, died, and gono
out of all power to injure them a number of yeara before, nnd it was only on
a raro visit to tbe oldor sister, who
nlono know much about the family
connections, that Roland had learned
something ot the state of affairs at
Redborough,
Elinor was old enough to remember
tho timo whon tho grandfather and
grandmother had taken charge of the
littlo weeping band of babies in Iheir
fur-off, helpless dayu, and she had
kept, up a curtain correspondence with
them, when, half ruined by thnt effort,
they wero saved fly Cathorino Vornon, the mysterious .wealthy cousin,
of whose namo everybody in tho family had hoard, Elinor remembered so
many details when hor memory wna
jugged that it occurred to Roland that
it would bo a very good thing to go
down to Redborough and pay his
grandfather a visit.
