The Railway and the People
That excellent new journal, The
Week, devotes considerable space to
the discussion of the relations existing between the 0. P. ll. Syndicate
and the people of Canada. In the
issue of the 13th ult, there are a
number of articles bearing on this
very important question. While
giving f'jll credit to the syndicate, as
shrewd business men, for making
the best bargain they could, and for
pushing on their work with extraordinary energy, it points out the
very great inconveniences the country is suffering from the high tariff
rates and the absence of competition.
In tbe older provinces there is rail-
1 way competition enough in all direc
tions, but west of Ontario there is
practically none. The vgst region
lying between Lake Superior and
- the Pacific Ocean has been handed
over bodily to the syndicate as far
as its carrying trade is concerned.
The oppression of this monopoly is
now being seriously felt etist of the
mountains, where traffic rates are so
high that wheat growing has been
pronounced a profitless operation.
The Week points out thut while these
rates are found to be exceedingly
oppressive, it is probable that they
.do not produce even a fair margin
of profit to the syndicate, in conso
queued of the snmlltiess of the pre
sent population. But it was nevei
contemplated that the C. P. R.
would pay even expenses west of
Manitoba from the moment of its
completion. Frery person knew
that the oountry must first be settled up, and that its resources must
be developed, before a paying traffic
at fair rates could be expected, It
-was in consideration of this fact that
the bonus to the company was made
rb exceedingly liberal, The syndicate were bound not only to construct the road, but to maintain and
operate it, and the expectation was
that its operation would involve a
loss for some years at least. The
bonuses in money and lands nml
monopolies were supposed to cover
this loss, and to cover it until such
time as the road became a paying
concern. But the syndicate seem
disposed to think that, having a secure monopoly of the whole trade,
tbey may levy such tolls as will
bring in dividends from the very
start In this they may find themselves mistaken. No community
will stand more taxes than it can
bear. As stated in the Week, the
legal right of the federal government to deal with Manitoba as their
own, without regard te the wishes
of Manitobans, will not be denied.
They may impose whatever customs
duties they think proper on all arti
oles needed for the industries of tho
province, The same legal right was
possessed and exercised by the imperial parliament in 1765 with re
spect to the American colonial possessions, but it cannot be said that
the polioy which led to the absolute
loss of these colonies was a success.
The same situation exists to n certain extent with respect to the western Canadian territories. The fede
ral government have imposed excessive duties on all farming implements ; thoy have made land regulations which are obnoxious j and they
havo given to the railway syndicate
powers and privileges which make
that syndicate complete masters of
the situation. The Week is of opinion that matters cannot long remain
in their present oondition. The uprising in Manitoba may be regarded
as weak and unimportant, So did
our ancestors regard the action of
the American colonists when they
pitched the cargo of tea into Boston
harbor. But this vaBt region of
fertile land will surely be settled up
and prosper, and the regulations of
the government and the syndicate
must be modified to suit the people.
The veto power exercised by the
federal government has done much
to strengthen the movement, and it
should enlist the sympathies of British Columbia. This province went
into tbe confederacy as an independent state, but it is rapidly losing its
autonomy, and its constitutional
rights are one by one disappearing.
There is danger that, when we have
surrendered our sovereignty we may
fssl ths powsr of despotism.

Orcat Cities of India.
The English are beginning in a
vague way to realize the magnitude- of
India, and to comprehend that it contains some 50,000,000 more people
than all Europe west of tho Vistula.
Few, however, are quite aware of the
number of its cities, or believe that it
includes sixty-two with more than 50,-
000 peoplo, uud twenty-two with mora
than 100,000, namely: liomhay, Calcutta, Madras, Hyderabad, Lucknow,
Benares, Delhi. Patna, Agra, Bangalore, yinritsur, Cawnpore, Lahore,
Allahabad, Jeyporc, Rangoon, Poona,
Ahmedabad, Bureilly, Surat, Howra,
and Baroda. We give them iu order
of population; but properly speaking,
in the English way of counting, Howra, the South wark of Calcutta, Bhould
be included in the capital, which with
it.contains above 806,000 soul*-, aud it
js tlm greatest, as it is by far the
wealthiest, city in tho Empire Below
tho limit of 50,000 the towns become
much more numerous, and there are
hundreds with populations above 20,-
000. The majority of the latter are
quite unknown to Europeans, an active
magistrate or two excepted; and, so
far as we are aware, there is no book
in English which gives the slightest
account of their organization, or of the
lifo and people in them. Yet many of
them havo hie tunes of 2,000 years,
and in all flourish families which think
themselves noble, and have lung pedigrees and Htinini* tales to narrate.
We hear evory now und then much of
Indian priucea wlm, in India, ave hardly mentioned, and wf S'eduoated natives," a scarcely perceptible el ..ss, but
of the true "Britisli India" as little is
known at home as of the custom provinces of Peril.—London tipectalof,
Vou iUulikc.
Field Marshal Count Yun Molt lie
celebrated his 8-ltli birthday on thu
20th of October. According to his
usual custom, he left his lioinu estate
in Kieisau, in Silesia, to visit a friend
aud neighbor, quietly anil informally,
in order to avoid congratulations,
wliich, in common with all kinds of
pomp aud pogeunt, he dislikes. Before the autumn tuuiiceuvres, from the
middle of August to the middle of
September, ho disappears every year
from public view, and it u said that
even his friends und familiars do not
know where he is. Tlii*) time is devoted to travelling, and especially to
mountain climbing, in which exercise
he usually excels his young companions. He ia not proud of his past
active und splendid career, but regards
what he has done as mere performance
of his duty* Although ho bus a substitute in the Quartermaster Genera],
Count Waldorsee, ho Hues to decide all
important matters himself. Essays hy
officers of the general stall', and opinions of tho heads of departments, are
constantly sent to him for criticism,
and ho writes on tho broad margins,
in a small, clear hand, observations
remarkable uot only for professional
acutcness, but for beauty of style aud
precision of thought.
He rises early, takes a walk in his
own greunds at Kriesau, or sometimes,
when in Berlin, in the Thiergarteu,
and then works generally till tlio hour
of his simple dinner. He seldom
smokes after t hat meal, snuff being the
fnrm in whieh he, like Frederick the
Great, enjoys tobacco. When he works
he lias Ins snuff box with him. In the
afternoon he receives or pays visits.
In the evening ho likes to play whist
with his nephew, Captain von Mnltke
and other friends. Even during tho
French war he was accustomed to play
whist when possible, aud his Adjutant,
Colonel de Cluer, had to provide suitable players. The officers of tbo general stall would report the news to liim
as he sat playing; aiid when his turn
came to go out of the game he would
follow the reported movements of the
enemy ou a map spread out iu the next
room, and plan with mathematical precision the required center movements.
Thus, on the 25th of August, 1870,
the reports of MucMuhou's march to
the Mouse found Field Marshal Von
Mottko ut whist, llcpurt after report
made the enemy's intention clearer to
him, and late in tho evening lie went
to the King and told him that the
army must march, not to Paris, as hud
been intended, but tu the Mouse. This
important resolution, ao swiftly taken,
whieh led to thu colossal victory of
Sedan, ia the bost proof of how quickly
the Field Marshal could grasp a completely altered situation and act accordingly. .
After the Emperor, Field Marshal
Von Moltke is beyond question the
most popular man iu Germany. The
King ef Saxony is specially attaohed
to hiin, uud'never fails tu visit him
when both are in Berlin. When at
court festivals the magnates tile pact
the Emperor and other royal personages, the King of Saxony, whon present, always rises at the approach of
the Field Marshal, and this gives the
signal for the whole court to follow his
example.
Count Von Moltke is a widower,
and has no children. He was happily
married for 20 yeurs to a lady whose
maiden name was Burt, who died in
1808, Being vory simple in his tastes
he Bpeuds little on himself, but it ever
ready to help his relations.—London

TUm Hood)'Subject.
deferring to Tiie Columbian's remarks on tho Port Moody magistracy, tbo Colonist comes to tiie defence of the government from what
it calls "a savngo attack." Our contemporary mny as well possess his
soul in patience. Unbecoming Ian
guage will not drivo The Columbian
from the course which it believes to
be right. The Colonist says the first
appointment wns made "under a misapprehension of facts," and that is
why it was cancelled. Now, what
facts were misapprehended? When
Mr. McGillivray received hU appointment the "facts" put forward
by tbe Colonist were known as well
as now. If tho Colonist had said
that tbe dismissal was made under a
misapprehension of facts, we could
comprehend its meaning. Tbe statements made by The Columbian
seem to us an abundant justification
for the position we have assumed,
and until the Colonist is able to attack successfully the correctness of
these statements it bad better remain silent. It has undertaken to
discuss a subject of which, it, apparently, knows very little.
Increased Representation.
In the legislature last week Mr.
Orr asked if it is the intention of
the government to give the districts
of New Westminster and Yale an
additional member. Hon. Mr.
Smithe replied: "It is the intention
of tbe government, before the expiration of the present house, to introduce a measure to give a more
equitable representation to New
Westminster and probably other districts." Our readers will remember
that this question of increased representation came up prominently during the last general election. Indeed
it came, up long before, that, and it
was one of those questions which tbe
late government absolutely refused
to adjust. The insufficiency of our
representation in tbe bouse, compared with that of other constituencies,
is well known. It was claimed thnt
this district should elect ut least
three members beforo it would bo
placed upon an equal footing in the
houso with most of the other constituencies. But neither Mr.Walkem
nor Mr. Beaven would listen to tbe
proposal. We arc glad that tbe
present government have resolved to
deal with this matter, and that Now
Westminster district at least, is to
receive increased representation.
There are other constituencies which
need adjustment, and the whole representation of the province should
be placed as nearly aa possible on
tbe basis of population. When the
bill comes down we hopo to see tha
•rhole question dealt with in a way
tbat will secure equal justice to all
sections of the province,
The New School Act.
The   Hon. Provincial Soci-etury
has introduced to the legislature an
act to amend tbe Public School Act
of 1379.    This bill, if passed, wil]
nuke   some  important changes in
school regulations.   Beginning with
tbe   last   three sections, we notice
what appears to  us an indication
that it is proposed to provide for the
establishment of high schools on a
basis  somewhat similar to the one
which   has been advocated so frequently by The Columbian.   Section  18 says:   "Por the purpose of
maintaining any high scIiooHt slmll
be lawful for the ti-UHtces, together
with  the superintendent, to fix a
scale of tuition fees to be payable in
respect  of  scholurs, and to make
rules   regarding  the  collection  of
such  fees nnd the enforcement of
payment   thereof.     All such fees
when   collected   shall be paid into
the provinoial treasury,   The scale
of fees shall be such as, in the opinion of the trustees and superintend
ent   of education, will be sufficient
to   meet one-half the expenses of
any   such high  school."   Sec, 19,
"No  high school  shall  be  established   in   any   school   district  in
which  there are  less than — persons duly qualified to be admitted
as high sohool pupils."   From these
sections it will be seen that all high
schools throughout the province are
to be placed on an equal footing.
This   is  one very important point
gained.   Hitherto Victoria has enjoyed the advantages of a free government high sohool, while all government   assistance   whatever   lias
been   denied  to  other sections of
the province where it was proposed
to establish high schools.

providing '_or ex,ini ina tion of teach
ers for pablic schools tbe bill ap-
P01r.,ts the third Monday in Juue as
the time when the annual school
meeting shall take place in all rural
districts, as well as cities. Sec. 6
provides that in city schools, at the
first election held after the passing
of the act, all the old trustees shall
retire. Sec. 10 provides that any
householder or freeholder resident
in any school district for six months
previous to tho election, and who
has paid the taxes due, and the
wife of any such freeholder or
householder, shall be entitled to
voto for trustees. Provision is
mado respecting tho different classes
of teachers' certificates, and it is
enacted thut no dismissal of a
teacher shall be final until approved
of by the superintendent of education.       _________________
A Hay Famine.
A gentleman who has lately visited a good many settlements
throughout this district, and who
has paid some attention to the subject, informs us that there will certainly be a hay famine before tbe
spring. At Sumas and Chilliwhack,
which have hitherto been considered
the great bay-producing settlements
of the district, there is now no hay
for sale—it has all been disposed of.
At Langley there is no hay in the
market, except, perhaps, a limited
quantity held by Mr. Innes. At
Maple Ridge thero is not enough
for local consumption, and some
farmers will have to buy for their
own use. At the South Arm there
aro probably about 200 tons, and
something over 700 tons at the
North Arm. But a great part of
this, we are informed, will go into
the hands of Victoria merchants
who have already contracted for it.
The problem with whicli we are
met is what shall we do with our
stock? The hay crop of 1884 will
not he available until next August.
It is estimated that there are in and
about Victoria 800 horses and 500
oxen and dairy cattlo wliich will
require more or less hay until this
year's crop comes to market. At
Nanaimo there are probably 100
horses and 100 oxen; about this
city and Burrard Inlet there may
be 300 horses and 200 oxen; nnd at
Yale and Hope an equal number.
We have, therefore, a total of about
2500 head which must be provided
with bay for the next six months.
On an average these animals will
require about two tons each, which
gives a total of 5,000 tons required
to meet the demand. In a district
whero so much good agricultural
lund exists there should be no such
scarcity. We should bo able to
grow all the hay, grain and root
crops necessary for ourselves, and
have a considerable surplus for ex
port. Hay lands will average about
3 tons to tbe acre. We believe hay
can be cut and baled for $4 or 84,50
per ton. The market prico varies,
of course, with circumstances; but
it will average from about $13 per
ton in the fall to $25 in the "spring.
This shows a margin of from $9 to
$20 per ton for profit, or from $27
to $60 per acre. At these prices it
should pay farmers to raise buy,
especially when there is a good
market. Wo aro also informed
that root crops are scarcely equal to
tbe demand, and that there is likely
to bo a scarcity in potatoes. These
facts sbould stimulate the farmers
of this district to unusual efforts.
Farming, if pursued with any kind
of intelligence, pays better than
itl most any other industry in this
province, and it could be greatly
expanded without risk of glutting
the market. Let every possible
acre of hind be placed under cultivation this year, and the farmers
will reap a golden harvest.

visit Scotland, and knowing the excellent

The Guardian must surely be mistaken about that fallen treo and old
fence in front of the Methodist parsonage. There is nu treo there at all,
and tho fence is perfectly new. But
the tree across Royal avenue lies thore

weut begging for candidates. Not so
this year. At the nomination there
was a large nud representative assembly. The acta and policy of the old

A Juvenile JatiKle.
Last Wednesday afternoon two casos
arising out of juvenile insubordination
were brought up before the police
court. It appears that Major Williams,
a boy about 15 years of age, entered
an action against Herbert Levi, aged
about 10, fur assault on the 11th inst.
A cross' action was entered by John
Levi, tujed about 11, against Major
Williams fur a similar olfeuce. Tlio
case was heard by Messrs. Ferris and
Pittendrigh, J. Pa. Mr. McCull appeared for Williams, and Mr. Thos.
Levi appeared for his Buns. The case
of Levi v. Williams was first taken up.
There were a large number of witnesses, embracing nearly all the children belonging to Miss White's department. But it was found that none
of these children had arrivod,at that
age when thuy understood tho nature
of an oath, and they tumid not bo
sworn. The ma^istratea, however, consented to allow some of tho little fellows to make statements, whicli were
in some respect quite contradictory.
They sa.d ihat when Johnny Levi was
going home to dinner hu and Robby
Parsons liegan throwing pubblea for
fun; George Williams was ahead of
them, but they wouldn't admit throwing at bim; Major Williams sprang out
from some place where he had been
hiding aud struck Johnny on the back
with a stick. In cross examination it
was admitted that bad blood existed
botween George Williams and some of
the other boys, hecause he had told on
them iu school. In defence Major
Williams was sworn nnd positively
denied thut he had struck Johnny at
all. On the da,1 mentioned ho waB at
the school ground for the purpose of
escorting his brother George home;
the boys had been throwing stones at
George and abusing him; on that day
Johnny had been throwing stones at
George; fur quito u while either ho or
his mother, or Millie other member of
the family had t<» go overy day to protect Gem-ge on his way from school.
Miss White was called, but knew
nothing about the matter. She had
endeavored to investigate it in school
but did not arrive at any vory satiafu-
tory conclusion. Mr, Mathers, J. P.,
testified that hu had one day seen
Georgo Williams going home crying,
and the boy stated that he had been,
struck on the face with a stone. Another day he saw several boys pulling
George about the street, nnd he recognized one of them as Mr. Levi's son.
He had several times seeu Major Williams, or his mother waiting to take
Geurgo home. Mrs. Williams stated
that for some time they had considered
tho life of their boy in danger from
the school children, aud had to send
an escort to bring him frum school.
Mr. McColl submitted that tho prosecution had made out no case, aim that
this affair should never have come into
court. In delivering judgment Mr.
Ferris expressed regret that the case
had come into court. The magistrates
had no option but to dismiss it with
costs,
The case of Major Williams v, Herbert Levi was then taken up. Major
said ho was going home with his
brother (Vuui school: Levi came upand
said that if he (Mijor)had anything to
say ho would havo to. take it out of
him; Luvi then I ried to tako the caue
out of his (Major'.i) hand, and iu doing
so slipped and fell; Major van into Mr.
Mather's yard, and Levi throw a stick
which struck him mi the back; some
days ago Levi had Lhtcntened to pound

PUaUQ MEETIKO IN HYACK HALL.
In coiuplitnco -.villi a requisition
Mayor DlekiiiBon o illod a public meeting on Wednesday uijlit for the purpose of hearing the opinions of candidates for St, 0'iir^us ward. The
mayor occupied thu chair, Thero was
a fair attendance of ratepayers, Tho
lirst speaker was
Mr. Jas, Cunningham, who touched
on a number of the questions which he
considered of tho greatest importance
to the prosperity hf the city. The construction of the branch line connecting
this city with the C.P R. wns a matter
which should claim our serious attention. If this were secured, New Westminster would becomu at once an important terminus of the road: without
it we must be content to take a back
seat. He was in favor of giving a
reasonable bonus towards this line,
He believed we should sell a number
of our public squares, wliich woro now
useless, and apply tho proceeds towards
thu railway scheme. In this way the
thing could be done without increasing
our taxes. It had beeu shown nt the
tale fire that our appliances for tire
protection were very iuellicient. Ho
thought a steam lire engine should bu
purchased, and that new tanks should
be put down to increase the water supply. Thu time would very soun come
when a better system uf water works,
both for domestic and fire purposes,
would havo to bo established. He nlso
pointud out, the necessity of a Bewenuc
system. In so far us tho branch railway company were concerned, of which
he was a member, they wure perfectly
willing to hand over their charter
either to tho O. P. U. syndicate or to
the city, They had nu wish to build
the road'themselves, but were very
anxious to suo it built. If he was
elected to the council hu would do all
in his power to carry out this schumu,
and he would carefully guard the
financial interests of the city. He had
a good deal of money invested here,
and it wns for his own interest, as well
as that of overy ratepayer, that-tho
city should prosper, But if we are to
occupy our proper position, we must
put our shoulders to the wheel.
Mr. W, IJ. Townsoud said he agreed
entirely with the views expressed by
Mr. Cunningham. If eleoted he would
do his best to. promote the welfare of
the eity. Hu was in favor of disposing
of a part nt least of the public squares,
aud of giving a bonus to the railway.
With respact to fire protection, he
thought it would be butter to establish
a good system of water works than to
fiurchase a steam tire engine. If a
urge reservoir were placed un the top
of the hill, with pipes to the principal
streets, force enough could be had to
throw a stream over any building iu
the city.
Mr, D. S. Curtis laid ha had con
sented to go into the council this year
mainly because he wished to see the
railway scheme carried out, He considered this the most important matter
that hnd ever como before the city.
While in favor of selling some of thu
public squares, hu was in favor ulno of
negotiating a loan. If all thu squares
wero divided up thuy would make JJ25
city lots. He would propose to boII
say 100 of these, which, at §300 per
lot, would bring §30,000. In iho event
of the city giving a bonus of £50,000 to
tho railway, he would negotiate a loan
of at leaBt §30,000 more. He was quito
willing that his sons and daughters
should bear part of the taxation necessary to secure present permanent advantages, and ho presumed many other
citizens felt tho same. He found alao
that the provincial government owned
31 city lots, valued at about 810,000.
He thought thu government should
surrender the.se and let thom be Bold,
and in this way tho extent of our taxable property would bo increased,
There were a large numbor of suburban lots which should bo included in
the corporation, aud ho hoped to sou
this done. As the law stands at present the city could not issuo debentures
for §50,000, and no debentures could
run for a longer period than U0 years.
They wore making application to have
the law amended bo that we could borrow a larger amount aud issuo debentures for a longer period. They also
had a bill before the legislature asking
permission to sell part of the public
squares. He hoped those things would
be granted, and thuy wonld then be
able to placo the city in tho position it
should occupy. But if tho bill paascd,
a by-law would havo to bo prepared
and submitted to the popular voto before thoy could sell any city property,
or boforo they could negotiate a loan,
The matter would bo entirely in tho
hands of tho ratepayers. He was in
favor of materially improving our
streets, and of beginning a thorough
system of sewerage. Ho was also in
favor of erecting a city hall, aud it
ought to be placed on Merchant
Square. Our appliances for fire protection Bhould also bu materially increased. They had boen trying to
establish a steam ferry across tho rivor,
and he was sorry they had nnt boon
altogether successful. Tho scalo of
charges seemed to him high, and the
peoplo of Surrey did not look with
much favor upon tho arrangements.
The council had dono the best they
could, however, and he believed that
tho ferry would bo in operation next
month,
The mayor said he was as anxious
as any one for the progress of tho city,
and he was convinced that wo Bhould
be ready to seize tho opportunities
for advancement which were now
offered. If wo sat still wo would
surely see other places growing up and
taking our trado from us. Asa mem
bor of tho branch railway company ho
could substantiate Mr. Cunningham's
statement, that the company were
perfectly willing to surrender thoir
charter either to the city or syndicate
Mr. J. E. Lord expressed himself
well satisfied with tbu opinions given
by the councillors olect and the candidates. Ho wan quite willing now to
seo part of thu reserves sold, and to
give a bonus to the railway company.
Tho citizens Bhould endeavor to back
tip tho council, and if needed improvements aud schemes added to our taxes,
wo should pay cheerfully for the gon-

Washihuton, Jan, IB, — Senators
Miller, Wilson and Morgan, who were

hold a meeting within a few days,
While there is perfect unanimity in
tho committee as to tho necessity for
tin-ther legislation, the impression prevails that llio desired end cun ne reached by the passage of a much shorter
bill than that proposed by the Pacific
conut delegation. Many members of
the committee think that if tho American consuls iu China nro given the
power to use certificates of Chinamen
coming to America that it will ovental-
ly prohibit tho tempting of laborers
under tho guise of merchants, students
and traders. Members of the committee, all, of whom, with the exception
of General Miller, had but little
knowledge of the way that the Chinese
law has been violated iu San Francisco, expressed their surprise that any
judge of a United States court would
permit tho landing of a Chinaman upon
his declaration that lio intended to become a merchant or trader in* the

hom* had buen that of a laborer.

Mr. Villard's Affairs.
A STATEMENT BY MR. HORACE WHITE.
In an interview January 4th with a
special correspondent of the Chicago
Tribune, regarding Villard's assignment,
Horace White, controller of the Oro-
gon and Transcontinental company
'and ouo of .the trustees chosen by
Mr. Villard, said:
"It is not really an assignment,
but simply a trust deed, by which ho
bus made William Eudicott and myself
trustees."
"Did Mr. Villard havo auy idea
that sueh a culmination ns this would
occur at tho time of his great excursion?" inquired the reporter.
"Well," continued Mr. White,
"matters looked ominous even then,
but only a slight depression in the
stocks had taken place, and I am sure
that if Mr. Villard had had the least
idea that such au ond as thia wouldXe
reached ho would never have under
taken such a pleasure trip. It has
been reported at various times that
tho excursion cost 8500,000. Now,
that is not bo, Tho total cost was
between $75,000 and 8100,000 at tho
most."
"Who do you think will succeed
Mr. Villard as president of tho
Northern Pacific'/"
"1 think that Mr. Billings will,
although hu is not particularly anxious
for the position on account of bis
poor health. It is a very trying position, as poor Villard found to bis
cost. Mr. Hillings is tho largest individual stockholder in the concern
and has boen for some time.
"1 beliovo," continued Mr. Whito,
"that Mr. Villard haa sacrificed all of
bis personal property to protect his
friends! I do not think ho uow possesses, any of his former large estate,
with tiio exception of some property
whioh ho transferred to his wife in the
days of his prosperity. Mr. Villard
will make auy sacrifice in his powor,
even if it reduces him to poverty, to
keop liis name stainless. His friends
know this and are doing all in their
power to aid him out nf his difficulty.
The Dobbs' Ferry houao belongs to
his wifu and is her own property.'
"What did Mr. Villard's property
consist off"
"Tho house ho lives in on tho corner of Madison avenue aud Fiftieth
street, three other houses on East
Fifty-first street, between Madison
and Fourth avenues, and six unimproved lots in tho block bounded by
Madison and Fourth uvonucs and
Fiftieth and Fifty-fii'Bt streets."
"What is this property worth'!1"
"At least a million dollars'."
"Hut (hero is an encuniberaiice
upon it, ia thoro uot?"
"Yes. A purchase money mortgage of $107,000, which, of course,
is a first lion tberoon."
"Will thero be enough to pay off all
of his liabilities"
"Yos, aiid more too, His indebtedness to the Oregon Navigation company will not reach 8500,000, although
I Cannot say exactly how much without referring to the hooks. Tho surplus will bo paid to Mrs. Villard, as
stipulated in the deed."
"What aro Mr. Villard's losses
plnced-Jit?"
"Ilo has lost about 85,000,000."
"Has not tho present crash in Northern Pacific boon looked for fur a
lung time?"
•'Well, yc3. Things looked blue at
tho lime Mr, Villard gave his excursion to tho European visitors. Six
months prior to tlio excursion, when
it was first conceived and the invitations wore sent out, things wero all
right, and apparently sound, Northern
Pacific stock being at par, whilo O. T.
was about 00. Hut at thu time the
excursioii look place the stocks were
about (30 and 70 respectively. I was
In Europo at tho timo, but saw that
a bad timo was on the eve of surprising tbo public. Even Mr. Villard
must havo foreseen then an impending doom, but it would not havu dono
to abandon thu project at that lato
day. If, however, he had foreseen
the present catastrophe, ho certainly
would havo let tho excursion go by
the board."	
Amos llitdgin, Toronto, writes: "I
havo boen a sufferer from Dyspepsia for
the past six years. All tho remedies I

You can quite understand that with
tho huge billows dashing with troiimu-
doua force upon'the lighthouse, tho
masonry has lo be of the most durable
character, and it ia therefore built of
tho best granite, and up to a height of
twenty-five-aiid-a-half feet above the
level of high wator it is solid stone.
Each block of stono is beautifully fitted
and dovetailed abovo, below, and on
all sides, which is very wonderful when
it is remembered that many of the
blocks are over three tons iu weight.
Tho tower consists of 2171 stones, containing 03.020 cubic feet, or 4000 tons
of solid masonry, whilst in Smeaton's
but 988 tons were used. Let mc tell
you a littlo about tho inside of the new
lighthouse. The bottom portion contains a largo water-tank capable of containing 3500 gallons. Then there are
two rooms Bet apart for the oil, which
is Btored in eighteen large cisterns,
holding in nll about 2500gallons, which
would be a supply sufficient for about
nine months. Now you will perhaps
like to take a peep into the dining
room, drawing-room, kitchen, &c,
You will find all theso iu one—a living
room, in which the party cf three men
who inhabit the lighthouse cook their
meals and take their recreation, Tho
light from the great lamp can bo seen
for nearly twenty miles. Ships passing
tho Lizard up the English Channel
were formerly left in darkness for
several miles between tho two lighthouses' at the Lizard Point and Eddy-
atone, but now tho two lights meot one
another, to the great comfort of the
mariner. The new lighthouse is generally visited every fortnight with fresh
supplies; but last winter, the weather
being rough, it could not be easily approached, and its inmates had to endure a time of famine. Their reserved
atore of food was exhausted; they were
obliged to fry their flour in lamp oil,
and had only two or three hard bia-
cuita on which to live. Thoy had no
fire, nnd were compelled to keep themselves warm by tho light of the lamps.
Thoy becamo reduced in time to such
a state of exhaustion that they could
only speak in monosyllables, Signals
of distress wero kept flying, but so
boisteroua was the weather that no
boat could approach for many days.
At length, greatly to their joy, a ship
arrived with succour for the starving
inmates, and thoir dangers wero at au
end.—Z-'Me Folks Afoj/nzine.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued,)
"I'll help, too, Cousin Dudley,"
said Katie, briskly, as we tobb from
table; and, true to her word, she reappeared in a trico with her dress
well pinned up and head and arms
comfortably Bwatlied in her favorite
plaid, and armed, to wit, with a formidable kitchen shovel.
Bruco made way for lier to pass
with a moaning shrug aud elevation
of his eyebrows, as he doiuiod, whistling tlm while, his dapper gray overcoat and drew on his fur-lined gloves;
signs nut lost upon the too watchful
Katie, for Bho flushed scarlet as she
followed Dudley out.
"Como along, Loo," cried Bruco,
when ho had finished all his arrangements, lit his cigar, and braVely
grnsped his spadu; "does not thia
speetaclo of northern activity firo your
sluggish pulses und muvo you to an
emulativo zeal? Come, put on your
brown-paper boots and Bet a pattern
to your sex; never mind chilblains
And red hands."
But lazy Lon, trailing hor hoavy
skirts further from the draught of the
open door, shook her head laughingly
and sat down to a scroll she was illuminating, while Katie worked bravely
in the midst ef the men aud boys,
till Mr. Egerton, coining up to holp,
took her place and her nlmvol together.
As many hands mako light work, so
in good time this part of the day's
business was over, and the little party
were at liberty to concentrate their
energies un the church decorations;
so, aftor a hasty luncheon they all
sallied forth, escorted by Bruce, intending to dine at the parsonage with
the rest of their fel low-workers and
be back punctually at half-past five,
whicli was half an hour before we expected Herwald.
Left by myself in the deserted
house I soon bustled through the
thousand little things I had to do,
and in the early afternoon was free tu
look round aud admire my handiwork.
I had encounted Lucy often during
the day in my frequent journeys to
and from the nursery, and it had
■truck ine more than onco that she
. was looking sadder aud more delicate
than usual. In our last encounter I
stopped her.
"You are looking pale to-day, Lucy;
havo you a headache?"
"No," Bhe answered, dejectedly, as
Bho mado a movement to pass on.
"Nay, you cannot bo well," I urged,
detaining hor gently, "for your eyes
are heavy, aud your hand hot and dry;
the boy ia bettor, but what ails you,
Lucy? Have you not slept woll lately?"
"Yes; at least, I do not know—
waking or sleeping it is all the same
to me."
"You mean that your trouble finds
you out in your dreams?" but she
made no answer.
"Now Lucy,'1 1 pleaded, kindly,
"you aro not dealing well with me,
your friend, for you aro suffering, and
yet leaving me ignorant uf the cause.
Has anything occurred to grieve you
freshly, or is it only that this festive
season uow approaching adds a darker
shade to your sorrow? alas, if it be
that, I cannot boc how any spoken
words of sympathy can avail you,
and yet I would fain try and cheer
you if I could."
For a moment the pallid face lifted
itself to the oold wintry sky, with
the sick look of ono whose heart is
slowly breaking, and then she turned
to mo with a lip that smiled amid its
pain—
"I do not know what ails mo—but
hope seems slowly dying out; all the
bleased thoughts that greeted me
when I crossed your threshold, all
that I so fondly trusted woro presentiments of future good; the dreams, the
visions rather, that were given me—
all, all a.e gune. I no longer believe
that Heaven has spared hiin tome,"
"But I do, Lucy; nay, look up, you
have so infected me with your bright
imaginings, that you have mado me
credulous too. What! shall wo despair without proof, when you havo
hoped and prayed so lung? It is but
the natural sickness of a too long protracted hopo that makes you droop.
Remember, Lucy, and tako it as your
Christinas motto: 'It is always the
darkest the hour before day;' " aud so
saying, I drew her to me, and kissed
her for the second time.
It waa yet early in the afternoon
when I left her and went down stairs,
but already within-doors the wintry
twilight was stealing swiftly on, the
hall was wrapped iu shadows, but the
drawing-room was light with the reflected whiteness of the snow and the
radiance of ths leaping ruddy flames.
It waa my favorite time, this hour
of twilight, and Iliad just drawn up
my chair for a spell of drowsy enjoyment, when the sudden opening of
tho hall door and a draught of raw
gusty air startled mo to my feet, and
tilled me with vague alarm.
"How careless of those boys," I
muttered, "to leave the door on tho
latch; it must have blown open of
itself;" and I was making my way out,
groping and feeling about, when my
hantla were suddenly gathered up in
the darkness, and a voice, not Dudley's
or Bruce's, cried—
"Ia that you, Nellie?"
It was Herwald.
"Yes, it is I," I answered. "Oh,
my dear Herwald, how you frightened
ine!"
And thon in my glad surprise, I half
led, half dragged him into the room I
had just left; and after kindling a
mighty blaze that made it as light as
day, I went up to wliere he stood,
leaning .against the mantel-piece watching me with his grave, sweet smilo;
and, taking hia hands, bado him welcome again and again.
"And now," 1 Baid, as I made him
sit down and took my place at his side,
"tell me how it happens that yon steal
upon ua wraith-like, in the darkness,
two hours before your time; and what
in the world have you done with Allan
and your luggage and dogs V
For answer, Herwald dived into hia
pocket, from whence ho produced
(Sprite,.who, on being liberated, ran at
me with a short bark, aud witli many
snarls, worried at the hem of my garment, under mistake that my morrocco
slipper was a full-sized rat.
Meanwhile, her master, leaning
luxuriously back, talked at mo with
half-closed eyes.
"Why I was deposited at your oc-
centrio little station two hours before
my time ia more than I can imagine,
though I have a shrewd suspicion that
the mistake was owing to my blundering knowledge of Brodshaw; as to the
luggage and dogs, I dropped thom
with Allan some twenty miles from
here, to oome up to-morrow afternoon,
tbe delay being warranted by private
business of hii nwnj  but why your
T U. Pearsou k Co, have juat opened
out a very large and varied assortment
of extremely handsome Church of England common prayer and hymn books.
_,.   ..„  , They are ths finest ever shown in the
hill dour op-mad when I ruuohei it* Qliy,~Adot
and why your lamp was not kindled
in sueh darkness, is fur you and not
for me to answer." Then, with a low
sigh of content, "Oh, Nell, Nell, how
good it iB to bo hero!"
"And how does the old place look,
Horwald? juBt the same, or has anticipation, as usual, cheated reality?"
"Not in this room," ho replied,
rousing himself from the quiet reverie
he was pursuing, with his eyes fixed
on the crackling logs, aud glancing
thoughtfully round him; "uot in this
room, for it looks to me brighter,
fresher, and more homelike thau even
I had fancied it would do. Oh, when
I first caught sight of tho dear old
walls of Sunnyside standing out in
tho snow and twilight, I could not
realize it, I half fancied I was in a
dream."
"Did you see the church lighted np
as you passed? they uro all working
down there at the decorations for tomorrow; they will be so sorry when
they return, to find you here lirst."
"Will thuy?" ho answered smiling;
"nay, it is better as it is. So many
voices greeting me on the threshold
would have overpowered and confused
mo—it would havo been too dazzling
after my solitary life, and now I shall
liavo fitted into my niche and be more
ready to meet them all. Yes, I knew
they wero church decorating, for the
obvious reason that I saw them at it."
"My dear Horwald, you don't Bay
so; then how is it that no ono is with
you? surely Dudley could havo been
spared?"
"Oh, no, no—it is not as you think,
I did not speak to any of them, though
I was sorely tempted to do so. I will
tell you all about it.
"It was nearly dusk when I loft tho
station, but yet so early that I had
plenty of leisure to saunter down the
village street and note tho several
changes that seven long years had
made in it; but these woro not bo
many as one might think, and except
that the whole looked dwarfed and
shrunken to half its size, and that
the smithy was down and the Bluo
Lion had got a new sign, no alteration
of importance attracted my notico.
"Looking nt it with a critical eye,
perhaps the footpaths might have been
wider, and the beersliops less numerous; but these minor defects woro forgotten when I had left the factory
quarter, aud turning the corner by
the Hermitage, came full upon the
church, with its illuminated windows
casting ruddy gleams upon the snow,
and the parsonage, aud the fields beyond, and the lane, and the stile, and
the garden gate, all the hallowed precincts, in short, of Sunnyside and
home,
From the rising ground where I
stood, I could see the dark shadows
moving across ono of tho transept
windows, nnd, impelled by a feeling
of curiosity to see what was going on,
I went in at the church-yard gate, and
clambering up on the ledge had a full
view of the decorators, and it really
was a pretty sight."
"Whom did you recognize among
them, Herwald?"
"Well, many wero strangers to me,
I believe, but I saw Dudley standing
in tho middle of a group of boys and
looking very much in his element; and
a tall young man near him mounted
on n ladder, who, according to all descriptions, must have been Bruce; but
who the square-shouldered fellow with
the (lurid face and black curly hair
was who was helping them, I have
not the faintest idea."
"Why, that was Dick Thornton,
your old adversary and tormentor;
but where were all tho girls, Herwald?"
"There wero twu or threo fiur-
haircd ones sitting in a pew just underneath me, working and chattering,
but I did not recognize any of then ;
for I was looking especially at a brisk,
tight-looking lass that I made up my
mind in nn instant was no other thau
Katie Cameron, though I never saw
her in my life. Sho had a bonnie,
sensible face, which to my taste was
rather attractive, and waa tied up for
warmth in a black and red plaid
shawl."
"The very samo—-to whom was she
talking?"
"Tu a lady in a fur-trimmed cloak,
and a hat with a lung black feather,
but I did not see her face."
"Why, you provoking boy, that waa
Louie; who else would havo been extravagant enough to wear her best
fur cloak at such work as that? and
if you bad not been looking so long at
Katie you would have found her out
for yourself."
"So I should," he observed, pen-
deringly; "how could 1 havo been bo
slow? But how comes it, Nellie, that
you are net with the rest of the busy
ones, but sitting hero by yourself in
tho gloaming! Do you know I saw
you bofore you did me, standing in
your black dress in the doorway with
a firelight halo round your head; did
I not startle you by touching you su
quietly without a word?"
"No, your hand had the touch of a
friend, it was too warm and human
fur a snow wraith. But now you shall
not tire yourself out with talking to
me; let me ahow you to your old
quarters, that yon may reBt and refresh yourself before the nuJBy party
come in,"
"You will tako mo to the nursery,
surely, Nell?"
Tu which I assented, and we presently adjourned there, Herwald pausing, however, on (he landing-place to
look down ou the moonlit gardun and
cedar true, uud halting a second time
before tho holly-framed doorway leading to his own apartment.
"That is not my room," he cried
after glancing in aud giving me a
withuting glance; "where is the old
brown bed, and the sofa with tlie lid
and drawers, and the roughly notched
winduw-seat, and the spindle-logged
table? Oh, you traitoresa, Nellie,
you have foresworn faith und fixed
me Kp handsomely:,' but for all that
his eyes glanced well pleased enough
at the crimson hangings, und pretty
tasteful new furniture that had replaced the old, though his voice had a
tone of real regret as he added, -"but
you have broken up the old associations, and left mo no relics of the
past."
"Yes, yea, indeed I have," I exclaimed, eagerly; "look here, Herwald, I Imve left you Gainsborough's
Bluo Boy, aud that odiuua George IIE,,
and tho little watch-stand that you
used to ubs, ond mother's jars of rose
pourri; but yoo really did not think,"
I continued, leading thu way to the
nursery, "that I could have put yuu
to sleep in that old curiosity shop-
why, what would Allan have said?"
"Just what Allan had liked; but
you are quito right, Nellie; it is ten
times better as it is, But now for
baby; I wonder whether she will be
shy to me or not?"
