Tlie papers wluoh published the
canard that Mr. Gladstone wns indifferent to the nows of Gordon's
death, and to tlio "Arabs tossing
the Khartoum babes on spear-
points," must bo dead to all sense
of journalistic honor,—Ottawa Free
Press,
By charging a million and a half
to capital account the Intercolonial
Railway is mado to show a small
surplus for the year, when thero
was really a great deficit. This one
dishonest . piece of book-keeping
also accounts for .the surplus of
$7f>4,000 in the Dominion accounts
for the year when there appears to
havo been a deficit of very nearly
that amount.—St. John's Daily
Telegraph.
Mr, Norquay has failed; he may
as well confess it ut once. If he
wero a sincere seeker of Manitoba's
rights, he and his colleagues would
immediately place their resignations
in the, hands of the people, allowing them to decide by whom tho
■struggle against our oppressors shall
ibe continued. Every true friend
■of Manitoba in South Winnipeg
will show that this is his belief by
liis voto in tho coming election.—

NUMBER 19
The Scientific American is responsible for the statement that an
ice-floe has drifted into Davis*
Straits, wliich hud undoubtedly
come from the neighborhood of the
Lena delta. It is said that the
evidences are indubitable that this
ice-floo bore the body of ono of tho
Jeunnette's men, and also marked
articles belonging to her crow; and
this proves, that it enme from a
point near tho Lena delta, and tlie
probability is that it had travelled
to and across the Pole, in whicli
case tho distance travelled must
* have been at least 3,500 miles. It
is suggested as a means of acquiring further knowledge of tlie Polar
regions that sol f-regi storing apparatus be placed upon ico-floes, which
may be culled "Automatic Arctic
exploration." Tho adoption of this
suggestion may possibly lend to
valuable scientific results, tvhilo it
certainly does not involve the sad
consquences to human life which
have followed Arctic expeditions,
and of which the bleak wanderer
mentioned above is u smi reminder,
-Ex.
No dogma wns even held with
greater tenacity by the greatest und
most illiterate bigot than that the
free use of intoxicating liquors was
absolutely necessary to soldiers,
sailors, and all expected to do
specially hard work and endure great
extremes of heat and cold, being
kept in good health and in the
greatest measure of efficiency. Grog
wns thought indispensable to the
'"sea dogs" of England doing their
<luty amid the tempest as well us in
the crash of battle. In India the
' "liquor ration" was thought to bo
quite as necessary as a matter of
health as of enjoyment. The men
were in fact mustered for grog as
regularly ns for drill, and were
forced to swallow down their quota
whether thoy ploused or not It
was no wonder that many became
drunkards and wrecks from such
discipline. All that is uow changed,
nnd leading authorities, both among
soldiers and suitor's, have lost alt
faith in intoxicating liquors of uny
kind. Lord Wolseley believes in
non-intoxicants, whether for the
camp, the inarch, or tho battle. Tho
new Oivil Lord of the Admiralty
in a lato speech said "ditto'' to the
strongest abstinence notions ev
propounded in reference to soldiers
and Bailors having other less harmful beverages. Mr, Oame said that
great progress was going on in the
navy in connection with total abstinence, and then added: "It had
been demonstrated that the greatest
hardships of the severest campaigns
could be better borne without the
.use of intoxicating drink than with
it The recent desert march in
Egypt had been done upon water.
The most brilliant infantry chargo
of modern times—that of Tol-el-
Kebir—was carried through upon
cold toa. Every day, he said, was
proving that the blue jackets, of
whom there wero twelve thousand
abstainers, could do their work—
whether amid the heat of Suakim
or tho cold of Skye—better without grog thau with it. Mr. Oaine
denied that he had ever proposed to
rob tho sailor and marine of their
grog, nnd said that what he desired
was to afford them every facility
to relinquish it voluntarily,"—-Globe,
The Grocer's Wooing.
"My dear Miss Sally RaUs," sighed
The grocer on his knee,
"I canned-corn- ceivo no butter bride

Tlie maid, "as one inaco see—"
''If vermicillo man," hu cried,

MS. MsLACAN INTERVIEWED BY THE GLOBE.
A late numbor (if tlio Toronto Globe
contains thp following roport of an interview with Mr. MoLagan, of Victoria, who is now in Iho oast:
Mr. McLugan, on being asked the
condition of tlio O.P.R, on the Pacific
coast, said that ho had travelled over
a portion of it, and although tho roport
hud boen circulated that tho rond had
been ballasted he found it to be what
ho termed as a fairly well graded road.,
It was absurd to suy that oven an attempt at ballasting had been made.
Competent judges assert that it will be
quite out of tho question for Mr. Onderdonk to complete his contract within the specified time, and the action of
Mr. Schreiber in discharging the engineers in charge of certain divisions
is looked upon iu anything but a favorablo light. It is known that great differences of opinion existed between
tho contractors und the governinout
engineers in regard to measurements
and proper classifications, lt need not
surprise any one if hereafter it should
bo found that gross irregularities have
prevailed iti connection with this section of tho road equally as glaring as
was the throwing away of over a quar-
torof a milliou.on the Moody-Emory
contract by awarding it to the presont
contractors instead of to others very
much below their Bating only ihat
the sums squandered may bo much
larger. By many it is feared that an
attempt will be made to induce tho
government tu accept of the work in n
very inferior condition, and ere the
O.l'.R Co. will Hgrci) to tnko it ovist,
anothor dip will.have to be mndo into
tho public cheat and a hoavybonus
grunted for completion of contract.
If one-third of the rumors relating to
the irregularities roforred to be true,
there is louch room for a parliamentary
enquiry, whon astounding exposures
would bo mado. Tho location of tho
lino in many winces is such lhat at all
times it will bo clangorous, for it is a
matter of (\aily occurrence to witnoss
extensive clay bank slides, rendering
ft necessary to keep a lunlcuut at many
of the sharp curves to be. mot with
along the banks of the Fraser, Tho
curves in many places aro vory sharp;
the gradients,-however, nro. easy, It
is questionable if a high rato of speed
can be attained.
TUB SEW  TERMINUS.
Tho locality finally Belocted for tho
Pacific Coast terminus Ib a good one.
So far as the shipping facilities aro
concerned and the site for a large
commercial city, nono bettor could
anywhere bo found. The local government gavo tho company a grant of
aix thousand acres of land fronting on
llurrard Inlet, False Creek, and
English Bay. Tho action of the govornmont in giving away so much land,
tho property of the peoplo of the entire province, has been severely criticized. If ratified by the legislature,
tho C. P, R. Company will proceed at
once with tho construction of the Hue
to the now site, tlio building of
wharves, docks, and terminal buildings. It is supposed that a Terminal
Improvement Company will be organized for this purpose, to whom will bo
deeded tho laud already roforred to as
trustees for the C. P. R. Co. In addition to this grant the private prop-
erty-ownors lmvo contracted, to give
tho company a considerable portion of
their lands and tho entire foreshore,
wliich will thus givo the Canadian
Pacific Railway Company entire control of tho wholo wator frontage of tho
future oity. Thesyiulicntu determined
upon securing overy noro of land and
advantage possible in order to make us
big a haul as possible. They havo
undoubtedly a valuablo property, and
if reliance cnu be placed upon their
Btatomeijts, every effort will be mndo
to draw traffic to and from tlieir city
no matter who may suflW- elsewhere,
or what rights or interests, are sacrificed. Should their policy on the
Pacific Const bo an aggressive ono
there can bo no question biit that a
complete revolution will take place in
Canada's carrying trade on tho Pacific.
Tho great dnnger to be feared, however, is absolute monopoly.
OK THE Ohinesb yuKsTio.v.
Mr. McLagan had only to say that
to the poople in the east this matter
was as important as it was to tho.se on
tho const, as tho Celestials were slowly
hut surely working thoir way eastward.
Tho American ports being closed to
thoir admittance, tho only recourae
Chinese had waa to hind at- Victoria
and then proceed into tho intorior.
Already they were in tho mountains
by tho thousand, moving eastward.
Unless restrictive legislation was pasted
and allowed to becotno law by tho Dominion, in a yenr or two tlloy would
control British Columbia, Onco it was
known thnt their coming to tho country wna restricted, wliite labor would
flow to the Pacific lt would speedily
bo absorbed nnd prove of groat benefit
to tho country. Tho remedy wus now
in the hnnds of the government, hut
its personnel was not such aa to inspire
confidence that a remedy would evor be
recommended. HiB advice to the work
ingmeti in the Enst was to agitate nnd
agitate until their demands were accorded to,

ttntnrtlny Morning, March 7, 1SS.1.
There are ninny signs of impending trouble iu the brotherhood of
' confederation. Ontario now asks
for nn increased federal subsidy
the ground that she pays three-fifths
of the wholo revenue of the country and does not receive a proportionate amount, from the federal
purse. Nearly-every province iu
tlie Dominion is engaged in a laudable grab for bigger pay, and unless
this is stopped the whole fabric will
some day suddenly collapse.
Wo have no sympathy for Mrs.
Dudley who attempted to shoot O'Donovan Rossa in tlie streets of
New York. It may be perfectly
true that Kossa closerves death, and
if Mrs. Dudley's shot had proved
fatal wo presume there would have
been few regrets anywhere. But
Mrs. Dudley liad no legal or moral
right to tako the life of Rossa, anymore than she had to kill any other
criminal who deserved death. Ifc is
i> serious mistake to magnify Mrs.
Dudley's uct into that of a heroine.
Tho probability ia thut she is a
crank whose mental balance is gone,
or a person who possesses the most
exaggerated and dangerous notions
of human liberties and rights. To
approve such acts as hers is only in
degree less culpable than to approve
the acts of Rossa himself. Two
wrongs can never make one right.
Provincial Finaccs.
From the estimates and the budget speech of the finance minister
it appears that the provincial finances ure still expanding. Many
of the sources of revenue have
shown n most gratifying iuorease,
nnd tlio minister figures upon an
income of §7,0&J351* Among the
items of increase aro the receipts
from land sales, which are estimated
at $200,000, tin increase of §20,000
over the. present year; head tax,
which has risen from $27,000 to
$70,000; real and personal property
' from 826,000 to §31,000. Other
items of increase added to these
show an aggregate increaso pf about
9160,066, The proposed expenditures amount to £7 T 5,1 -19, which is
■nearly 8100,000 in excess of tho
estimated expenditures of the current year. In the appropriations
for education there is an increase of
§8,220; for public works the appropriation asked is "8302,200, an
increase of $47,585. There is $40,-
000 set apart for a new gaol in
Victoria, and §10,700 to supplement tlie appropriation of 825,000
made last year for the new gaol at
this city. For roads and bridges
in this district the sum of J?2o,000
has been set apart, tlie same as last
year, liesides the usual 6b\000 to
the municipalities. In our next
issue we shall givo further particulars of the various appropriations
proposed.
BBgWBBBj^'S
Squatters' Compensation.
It is to ho hoped that whatever
compensation is allowed to tlie False
Creek squatters, the amount may be
determined upon some common senso
principles. There are some very
extraordinary rumors going about
respecting tho extent of the improvements made. Wo havo very
excellent authority for saying that
the value of theso improvements
has been enormously overstated,
and we aro assured that where it,
was represented to the committeo
that houses were standing, these
houses have only beeu put up since
the committee completed its report.
There should lie a valuation made
on the spot by a person who is both
thoroughly competent and trustworthy, and tho government should
guard against a repetition of the
mistake it committed respecting the
lots it sold in this city last summer.
It surely cannot he intended that
any of the claims arising out of
the Spinks-Greer transaction will
l>e recognized. The general public
impression concerning tliat transaction is that it was a deliberate tit-
tempt on the part of some one to
swindle the government out of u
valuable piece of land. The evidence of Mr. McTiernan and Indian
Charley goes a great way towards
confirming the suspicion of forgery
in the original conveyance and perjury on the part of some of the
witnesses. A claim which, rests
upon such a basis and has lieen supported by such practices ought not
to stand a moment. There are few
who will otyect to retWOnnblo com
pensation being given for actual
improvements in cases where .the
claimants had really in good faith
gone upon this land for agricultural
purposes; and had been misdirected
by officials. We are extremely
doubtful if uny such . cases exisfc;
but if they do, let the government
deal justly witli them; but let it be
careful lest designing rogues get
away with money belonging to hoi
est and innocent ratepayers.
A Wide Difference.
It has been decided to build a
now gaol at Arictoria, and the sum
of .*? 10,000 has been placed in tho
estimates for that purpose. No
doubt Victoria needs a new gaol
and we shall not quarrel with tho
appropriation. But the people of
Victoria are now making a strong
appeal to the government to get
possession of tho grounds upon
which tlio present gaol in tliat city
stands. They think the government
should hand this proporty over as a
free gift to tho city'for the purpose
of making a park, and as a plea they
put forward the assertion tliat tho
government gave New Westmiuter
a large area of land for a similar
purposo. The assertion is not precisely true. Tlie reserves in this
city were originally laid out
as public pleasure grounds and
sites for public buildings. They did
not belong to the government in the
ordinary sense of possession, but
were simply held in trust for a
specific purpose. No government
would have dared to take these re-
servos and sell them for provincial
revenue purposes. They were handed over to tho city by the present
government with the condition that
they must not be sold without lirst
having obtained the assent of the
people. The case of Victoria is very
different. The gaol property is in
evory sense the property of the
province, aud the -people of New
Westminster have as much claim
upon it as the people of Victoria.
It was nover intended as a public
reserve. Victoria has a magnificent
park at Beacon Hill, and tliere
ought to be another within the city
itself. But in view of an expehdi
ture of $40,000 for a new gaol in
that city it may he* a question
whether tho government would bs
justified in handing over to the city
at the same time a piece of provincial property valued at *?o0,000.
Tho engineers.who laid out the city
of Ni-w WooFi'-.ihritrr mtulo tlie mistake of reserving too much space for
public grounds: those who laid out
Victoria mnde a much greater mistake in leaving no space for public
grounds at all But that is not a
matter which concerns the proviuce,
or an error which should be rectified
at the expense of the provincial
treasury.
Sunday Traffic.
The largo number of respectable
electors and others who petitioned
the legislature to prevent the sale
of intoxicating liquors on Sunday
will be greatly disappointed at the
fate of the petition. The house
ins rejected it ou the plea that it is
'too sweeping;' and that tho matter is already in the hands of the
municipalities. If our present legislators consider a law to prevent
open Sabbath desecration too sweeping, the electors may consider the
propriety of sweeping tjiem out of
the houso altogether and supplying
their places with men who will carry
nut the public will. The plea put
forward by Mr. Duck, and supported by Messrs. Wilson, Orr and
Galbraith, wos that the municipalities already had power to closo
saloons during the .Sabbath. But
how many municipalities are thore
in British Columbia, nud what is to
be done in the vast regions where
no municipal orgnni/iitiou exists ?
Besides, it is of great importuueo
that there should lie uniformity of
practice, wliich enn exist only by
statutory enactment. Suppose the
authorities of this city pass uud
enforce a Sunday law, persons who
wish to purchase liquor on Sunday
can easily cross the river to Brownville, or take a drive, to Burrard
Inlet where there is no municipality nud no Sunday law. The suggestion thut saloons should he
closed during the hours of church
service, with which the house dismissed the question, is of all suggestions the most absurd. If saloons should he closed during church
service, they should surely bo closed
while the Sabbnth school is in bos
sion and while any other religious
exercises are iu progress. To make
and enforce a law thnt would meet
tiie case is beyond nil reason. And
why should not the snlo of liquor
bo prohibited on Sunday us well as
tin1 sale of groceries.or any other
merchandise? The license regulations, are based upon a distinct recognition of the positive evils of the
liquor traflic. Is it because this
traffic results in evil that it must bo
singled out from all others ns a
proper traffic for the Sabbath 1 Wo
arc sorry that another year at least
must bo allowed to go past without
any improvement in the license
regulations. In tho mean time the
reform movement will go ou, and
those who stand against the will of
a free people must give place to
others.

'A public meeting wns hold nt Fort
Langley, Feb. 28, 1885, for tho purpose of obtaining better postal service.
Mr. Harrison was called to tho-chair,
Tho chairman asked any present to
state grievances and also to give their
views as to what thoy thought was tho
best remedy. Complaint after complaint wns put before the meeting.
Ono person said the mail service waB
not as good as it was 15 years ago,
when there were not one fifth of tho
residents thero aro now. All were of
opinion that the present state of things
should be patiently borne uci longer,
but that earnest and decided efforts
Bhould be made to bring about a
change for tho better. The following
resolutions were put and carried unanimously!
Proposed by Mr. Speuce, seconded
by*Mr. Hughes, "That tbo present
mail servico is in every respect moBt
unsatisfactory. We are only 17 miles
from Now Westminstor and yot no replies to letters cau bo obtained undor
9 daya; this, with other delays'nnd ir-
regularities, make it worse than useless
for business transactions."
Proposed by Mr, W. Rawlison, seconded by Mr. H, Morrison, "That the
last arrangement, of 1 mail per week
by Btoalner, is not sufficient. We ought
to have 2, other places of less importance having them. Past experience
has proved that, for regularity, no dependence can be placed ou thu steamer:
.and as tenders are . uow being called
for, for carrying mails twice a week
from New Westminster to Chilliwhack,
and so passing Langley Prairie, which
is only about 5 miles from here, this
meeting is of opinion that the only reliable service for us will be to let our
mails be carried in connection with
these, and that tho P, O, Inspector be
requested to iuclude Fori. Langley in
tho tender,"
Proposed by Mr. W. Towle, seconded
by Mr. J. Taylor, "That as great uncertainty has hitherto existed ns to
closing and departure uf mails, this
meeting requests that, for tho future,
fixed times should bo decided upon
nnd publicly notified."
Proposed by Mr. J. Maxwell, seconded by Mr. K. Morrison, "That a
copy of tho proceedings of tliis meeting bo forwarded to the Buirisii Columbian nnd to EL H. Fletcher, Esq.,
P. O, Inspector, Viotoria."
Tho secretary wus instructed to obtain an early reply from P.O.Inspector,
and a committee, consisting of Messrs.
Towle, Harris, nnd Maxwell, wero appointed to decide on future action, on
receipt thereof.

The Budget Speech.
From I lie Colonist's roport.
Hon. Mr. Kobson, minister of finance,
roso to move tlio house into committee of
supply. In doing bo he said it waa not
his intention to occupy the timo of the
house to any considerable extent, as he
was aware of the anxiety of lion, members to conclude the work of the session
and return to thoir- homes. Still, it
would be. expected of hiin to say something in moving tho resolution. He
wanted hon, members to take a retrospective view, in onler the better to
realize the financial standing of the province. In 1882 the balance of liabilities
standing against the province was §185,-
000. In 1883 that balance had been increased hy dock construction to ij'3'J'.l,-
000. By ths splendid stroke of polioy of
the present government iu getting rid-of
the dock uml obtaining from Canada tho
-rotum u£ .cTcry. dollar expended uu It,
that liability of §.120,000 was transformed
into a clear asset of §2,000. Thus not
only had tho province been freed from an
undertaking which was dragging it down
towards bankruptcy, but it had recovered
every dollar spent, upon it, and had
secured the speedy completion and efficient maintenance of the duck, without
involving any charge whatever upon tlie
provincial revenue- and atl t!iis,\vbilc the
dock itself would be just as advantageous
to tho province as if built, owned. and
operated by ns. It should be remembered, too, that it had been found necessary
to enlarge tke dook to the extent of 150
feot, making it ample for the accommodation of tlie largest class of vessels
iifloat.an additional expense which would
have been utterly beyond the power of
the province. Ho folt suro that hon. gentlemen on both sides of the house must
be convinced, even if unwilling to admit
it, of the great advantages gained hy the
province under that arrangement. By a
recent appropriation mado by the Dominion government; tlie Bum of $83,107 had
been added to the allowed debt of British
Columbia, thus increasing our capital invested at Ottawa, and adding $4,155 to
tho annual subsidy represented by the
interest we derive from that source. By
reference to the printed balance sheet, in
the hands of hon. members, it will be
seen that the government had not only
the anticipated surplus of $100,000 on
special deposit, bearing interest at the
end of last fiscal year, but they had, in
addition to that, $34,000 besides, to the
iredit of the provincial account, In the
bank, Now surely even hou.,members
opposite would join those on the ministerial Bide of the Iioubo in congratulating,
if not complimenting, the government
upon so very gratifying a showing. Tho
supplies being larger than anticipated,
in framing tho estimates a year ago, it
was to be oxpoctcd that a liberal supplementary would be. presented for the
present fiscal year. The estimated ex
penditure for tho current fiscal year was
feti24,294, and supplementary estimates
would probably be brought down for
something like $57,007, thus making the
expenditure for tho current fiscal year
amount to $081,301, bringing it within
$33,788 of the estimated expenditure for
the next year. Ho wonld allude to a fow
of the principal items of increaso in tho
estimated expenditure now beforo tho
house. For civil service salaries the increase was only 8)150 ; maintenance of
publio institutions, §3,025;.; hospitals,
W.000; education, $0,681 ; -works and
building!-. $18,375 ; geographical survey,
82,500; roads and bridges, $3,772. It
would thus bo soen that tha prin-
siplo increase was for works of n necessary aud reproductive character.. Provision was made for ten new achoola. 1 he
total amount asked for education proper
was $82,235. If to that he added the
amount sot down for school buildings,
the cost of our educational Bystom would
aggregate close upon$100.00O, an amount
at once alarming and gratifying—alarming, becamfe it was a heavy and increasing charge upon tho public revenue—
gratifying as a sure indication of the
healthy progress of the country, lt was
an absolute necessity to keop pace With
settlement in providing schools, It should
bo remembered that tlie most desirable
elass of settlers wore thoso who pri/ed
schools most—settlers who would uot
como to the province, or, having come,
would not remain unless the means of
educating their children woro placed
within their j-eacli, While therefore,
hou. members might perhaps regard with
a feeling of nervous anxiety this large and
rapidly increasing item, thoy should on-
dcavpr to look at it in its moro pleasing
aspect. The lion, gciitloman invited attention to tho following tacts nnd figures:
Tho total expenditure un works and
buildings and reads, struts and bridges
for the years 1881,1882and 1883 amounted to $307,403, while tbo expenditure
nnder tbo same bends during tlie years
flubscnuoiit, including tho estimates beforo the house, amounted to $755,851,
showing an increase during these years
for reproductive works of $148,448. The
whole revenue'of tho province for the
years 1881 mid 1882 only aggregated
$787,042. He invited attention to the
rates of increase under the principal
heads of revenue. Land sales rose from
$20,034 in 1882-3 to $01,433 in $1883-4,
to $180,000 in 1884-5, and are estimated
at $200,000 for 1885-13. In like manner
the revenue derived from the head tax, in
the same period, rose from $27,246 to
$70,000. Keal and personal property,
during the samo pcriod,rose from $20,000
to $31,000. Tho increase of expenditure
during the threo fiscal years ending 1886
was as follows: Ou education, $68,897;
on works and buildings, $142,761; on
roads, streets and bridges, $305,687.. He
desired .to Bay a few words about the
amount of revenue anticipated from land
sales. Last year hon. members opposite
ridiculed the item of $100,000, which appeared in the estimates uuder that head,
but it was now found that the estimate
was exceeded beforo the end of the first
half of the year, and thero was every
probability of its being doubled by the
end of tho year, lu ail likelihood hoa.
gentlomen opposito would be'now found
scoffing at the fact of $200,000 being expected from laud sales during the next
fiscal year; but he folt even more confident of the realisation of the present expectation than he did a year ego. Of
course it was to the crown lauds on Burrard Inlot and Knglish Bay rendered valuable by the wise arrangement entered
into with the C. P. R. Company that we
must look for the principal amount, And
just here he would correct the misrepresentation of his previous remarks on the
subject indulged in by certain hou, members, especially the hon. member for Yale
(Mr. Scmliii), who had accused him of
having stated that the six thousand aores
given to the railway company was of an
average present value of $500 on acre. Now
ho had never said anything of the kind,
and, consequently, that hon. member's
arguments based on that false foundation
completely fell. What he did say upon
the occasion referred to was that taking
the mile strip fronting on the vory hest
part of the harbor belonging to the government, it was worth, on an average,
$500 au acre; nnd he contended that in
making that statement he was well within
the truth. He had no hesitation in asserting that the land iu question could
be readily disposed of ut that price, It
was a fact that land owned by private
parties aud lying at the back of the mile
line was now in the market at $700 an
acre, and he was aware that $500 an acre
had actually been offered and refused for
it. He desired to avail himself of the
present occasion to refer to a matter affecting his hon. friend the late president
of the executive council as well as himself and colleagues; nnd he regretted
tliat the hon, gentleman (Mr. Drake)
was not in his place, as he would have
corroborated what he was about to say.
Upon tho formation of the preseut administration that hon. gentleman had
very reluctantly consented to take a scat
iu tlio cabinet—reluctantly because aware
that it must be at the serious sacrifice of
private interests. He did, however, consent to take the position, but stipulated
that it should only be for six months.
He was, however, subsequently prevailed
upon to continue in the' cabinet for two
whole years, and during all that time lie
had discharged the duties of a cabinet
minister, attending, he might almost venture to say, more than a hundred meetings of 'the executive, and cheerfully
doing his full share of the executive
work, and all that without fee or reward,
even to the extent of carriage hire. It
had been stated in certain opposition
newspapers that the severance of that
hon. gentleman's connection with the
cabinet was iu consequence of disagree
ment—chiefly on account of his (Mr.
Robson's)' overbearing and dictatorial
manner, and ou account also of t alleged
questionable transactions to which that
gentleman declined to be a party. Now,
he wished to state that the utmost liar-
mony had prevailed in the cabinet during
all that period, ami that the hon. tho
lato' president of the council resigned
wholly upon grounds ot  pci-_uu_.i oud
Eirofesstoual considerations; that tbe re-
ntious between him and Ids colleagues
were of the most agreeable and friendly
kind; that those wlio remained deeply
regretted tho loss of his valuable advice
and assistance, and that he liad reason to
know that hon. gentleman retained the
most friendly feelings towards his late
colleagues, whilo politically, he continued
to be in the fullest sympathy with them.
He regretted the lion, gentleman was not
iu hi. placo to corroborate those statements; but he (Mr. Robson) felt well
assured that tlie two years' valuable and
-gratuitous services rendered by the hon.
the late president of council would not
be forgotten by his constituents or by
the country. He had now to move that
the house go into committee of supply.
Mr. Galbraith felt that he was called
on to-day to undertake a task that he
was not equal to. Tho absence of his
hon. friend, Mr. Beaven, had been a
great loss to the session, and he only
hoped that his health would be such during tho coining year that again he would
be enabled to assume the duties of leader
of the opposition. (Henr, hear.) His
well known abilities in finance were such
that he would have beeu glad if he had
been able to reply to his hon. friend opposito. Ho (Mr. Galbraith) was much
amused at the elasticity of the finance
minister's imagination, for he had first
£ laced tho value of the land per acre at
oal Harbor at $500,000 an acre—dropped to $700, and further felt to $500.
Hon. Mr, Robson-It is very undignified for the lender of the opposition to
make a speech on a la putt* tint/titr,
Mr. Galbraith-Well, ho would ask
his hon, friend if tho increase in revenue
promised was to be derived from Coal
Harbor ? If so, then he could not take
the same roseate view as the minister of
finance, for it would not bring in the
returns thnt were anticipated, and if the
revenue was to be derived wholly from
sates of lands, theu the targe increaso
firomised would not bo given. His hon,
rieud had spoken of the drydock. He
(Mr. Galbraith) still retained his opinion
that it was a mistake in handing it ovor
to the Dominion government, for it wns
a valuablo asset to tho province. His
hon. friend also spoko of the general
prosperity of the country. Thnt was occasioned by tho building of the railways,
and so soon as they were finished the
same collapse that came on the finishing
of the Northern Pacific in Oregon ami
Washington Territory, would overtake
thia proviuce In a couple of years, and
wo might as well face the fact. Our
country was not an agricultural onu hut
n mining country, nnd tbo sooner the
province took steps to foster the rich
mineral deposits, the hotter for its prosperity, For education there was a sum
of $80,000, double that nf formerly. It
was a serious draw on the revenue of tho
country, ami a municipal system of
sohool education such as that, in othor
places should lie inaugurated. The dry
dook was Bold, the lands woro nearly all
gone, the Coal Harbor bonanza would
soon bu over, and ho would ask his hon.
friend if hu would then bo prepared to
come bofore the country with a system
of direct taxation, The Beaven-Walkom
government had four years of retrenchment nnd the probability was that in a
year or two the samo period of retrenchment would again havo to lie followed.
He only hoped that whether the country's affairs wtro hi tho hands of hon.
f[unthiineii opposito or in those of his
ion. friend to tho left that they « ould
continue tri prosper.   (Hear, hear.)
Hon. Mr. Smithe regretted very much
that Mr, Beaven was unable to take bis
customary place and reply to tho minister
of finance. He felt sure tbat at his
hands tlio estimates would have been reviewed fr im an opposition point of view
with au intelligent appreciation of their
importance, lt wus well that tho acting
loader coufesBwl Ids Inability to cope
with the aubject ns the fact was patent
to all who heard him. Ho treated the
estimates as he had treated tho speech at
the opening of the house, declining to
discuss the important matters dealt With
on the ploa that they would later on
come up in detail. The hon. gentleman
had contented himself with picturing in
the most dolorous way, a future for the
province of utter hopelessness. If lie
(Mr. Smithe) took-the same view of the
future he would want to get to some
other country as quickly as possiblo.
Tbe hon. gentleman (Mr. Galbraith) predicted with such an air of positive conviction, the utter collapse of this country
aud its industries after the completion of
the railway that he (Mr. Smithe) was
constrained to ask, was it for that the
Erovince had in times past almost moved
eaven and earth to secure railway construction? Was it that ruin should fall
upon the land that missionaries bad beeu
sent to London and Ottawa? Surely not!
For liis part he differed from the member
for Kootenay to the extent of believing
that completion of railway construction
would be but the real- beginning of the
development of the industries of the laud
upon which the future would depend,
(Hear, hear.) He would refer the hon.
gentleman to his owii district and ask if
the immense mineral resources which
the railway would open up, and tho great
lumber industry which would be developed there would not give employment
to aa many men as ure now employed on
railway work. He was not prepared to
go ns far as his friend the minister of
finance in estimating the revenue from
land sales at Coal Harbor, but neither
could he endorse the extreme opposite
view expressed by the member who last
spoke. The estimate was a fair one and
upon It the government had set down
large earns for expenditure in the various
districts, but large aa they wore they
were far behind what had beeu asked for
by hon..irf«nbers.- If he liad agreed with
the minister of finance that auy sum
wished for could be safely counted upon
from land sales at Coal Harbor ho would
not have denied hia hot), friends the sums
asked for by them for their districts.
He assured them he would have
given them the full benefit of the
large revenue, and' would have made
roads and bridges to their hearts'
content. (Hear, hear.) He hoped the
rose-colored expectations ef his friend
would he realized, and thon another year
the members generally would be amply
satisfied with their district appropriations
(hear.) The graving dock had oeen referred to aa a source of income which had
beeu giveu np. He had thought that idea
long since exploded, hut the hon. gentleman had argued on thnt side so long that
possibly ho had persuaded himself that
there was something iu it. What had been
given up was a burthen of expenditure beyond the power ot the province to carry.
As for revenue from it. that was a myth
which for long, long years to come could
have no existence outside the vivid imagination of the member for Kootenay.
As a proof of the wisdom of the policy of
putting the dock where it properly belonged— on the shoulders of the Dominion—he would call attention to the increased amount it would now ho necessary
to expend to extend the dock to the limits required by the present size ot such
ocean steamships as the Canadian Pacific
railway were about to place in these waters. Air. Beatty was going to Kngland
to superintend the construction of two or
threo million dollars' worth of ships, every one of which would be at least fifty
feet longer than the present dock is,
Could the province have undertaken to
add fifty feet to the length of the dock ?
Certainly not; but tho Dominion, urged
by the railway company, undoubtedly
will, and wc will reap tho benefit from it,
(Hear, hear.) Hia hon. friend also referred to education, and suggested that
tho cost should be placed on the municipalities. There was not a doubt that
something, wuuld have to bo doue soon to
make a change In the management of education, but what changes would be
made it would be useless at present to
prophesy. If his hon. friend bad suggested such a course as followed in Ontario
then he would have seen no reason in hit
remarks.. It must-be apparent to all hon.
geutUmen.tha. nil affairs of. tbe country
at the present time were such that almost
every department was overworked, aud
it could hot be objected that the small
increase iu the matter nf salaries was unnecessary. The cost of administration of
justice was increased on account of the
county court system, and also on account
of it being uecessary to appoint constables at the railway works. The increase
hi public works waa due to the construction of a new gaol at Victoria, and no
objection could be made to the increase,
as the gaol was an absolute necessity.
They had, put dowuseveral largo amounts
for roads and bridges, but the large increase in population in the various' districts had made it absolutely imperative.
He had not a doubt that no single member would regard tho amounts set down
for hia district as too large, but rather
the reverse. (Hear.) If the expectations of his hon. friend who sat behind
him there were realized, then he would
say again that next year they would be
prepared to meet the wishes of all the
members of the different districts, in the
matter ot expenditure in the fullest manner possible.   (Hear, hear.)

American pianos.
The organa made by the Company ure
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all atyles, aud at all
prices, ranging from 850 to $1,000. Many
•ample organs are shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
Dreseut et the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big iustrument. The or-
guns run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
Sarlor favorite. The cases show won-
erful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
Tlie case which secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia ie still much admired, and
is largely manufactured, Cases for parlor organs are chaste in design and artistic iu execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases.

MWt FROM -UIPMT8 Of THE MRU.
Washington, March 3.—Tbe White
House building und grounds wore
crowded with visitors to-day. Tho'
east room was the only one open to
sight seers. The president was kept
very busy during tho day signing acts
of congress and attending to other
official matters. Tho members of the
United States supreme court, headed
by chief justico Wnite, called just before noon and took leavo of thu president. A meeting of the cabinet wns
held at noon aud lasted two hours.
All the members wero present. Tho
session was devoted to clearing up nll
official business requiring action during
thu present administration, At 2:1)0
thu president received the members of
the diplomatic corps. All Ihulega-
t imi * wo iv represented, nnd it seemed
ns if every diplomat in tho city was
given an opportunity to take official
leavo of tho president. While arrangements woro being made for pnekin-;
nud removing tho personal effects of
tho president and family, n Inrgo depress wngiiii drove up to (ho main
entrance aud deposited a number of
trunks, hoxua and parcels Containing
tlio purHonal effects of President-elect
Cleveland and his private secretary.
After tho president haa reviewed the
inaugural procession he will proceed to
the rufidunce of Secretary Frelinghuy-
sen, whose guest lio will be for two or
three weeks, The president - olect
called on President. Arthur this afternoon.
Washinotun, Mnrcli 4,1 p. m,—
The inauguration ceremonies aro in
progress. At 11 n. in. tho senate
chamber was crowded to its utmost
capacity by members of congress, senators, diplomats and officers of tho
govornment, whilo the capital grounds
and approaching avenues wero crowded
hy unthubiustic masses of poople,
After the organization of tho senate
the line of march wns taken up to tho
rotunda of the cnpitol, whero, upon
ihu platform, President Cleveland took
the oath nf office. His address was
delivered with composure, Tho wild
est cheering followed each feature of
tho oi ruinony. The nir is full of
must!,, and the city is brilliant with
parades of military and civic organizations. Everything so far has passed
oft smoothly.    Washington hns never
Blgh Clnss organs.
From the Toronto Glo.be,
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover ono of
the most interesting to lovers of gooil
music aa being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
tbo requirements of the company, which
had been crampeil for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed hy the Company in
providing suitable quarters on tho
grounds for their business has been re
warded. I'ho large number of visitors
who cnll, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond cjiicstion that the public approve
tbo provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may bo
seen listening to tost performances on
titstckm instruments mado by loading
city and country musicians.
itight well do the Company deserve
tho succcbs whkh they have achieved.
The presont prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
nbout fifteen yours ago, the stoek boing
at that 'time largely held by {Arties unacquainted with tno businoflS. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary aud treasurer; (tcorgo Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W, S. Russell, superintend
ent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Sinco that dnto the business has
beeu booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. I'iano-
milking was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establish ment was in*
creased, until it now occupies a leading
Fosition among Canadian undertakings.
t turns ont about 200 organs 'and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by SoO hands, who receive in wages
ahout 915,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia. .
The instruments on exhibition in tke
pavilion aro fair examples of tho Company's workmanship. Au upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square nnd n square grand. The former
is intended for standing against tho sido
wall of a room, and is convenient for
comparatively smnll apartments, Tho
square grand is finished on nll sides, nre*
seats a handsome appearance, ami is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments arc of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch Is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful,   In musical quality and ap-

with his partner and agent had a singular effect ii't)QI) both. Neither accepted it its dime in good faith, lt
surprised, aud, indeed, startled thein,
What they had looked for was a prolonged discussion, ending, iu nil probability, in a victory for Edward, who
was by far tho most tuimcioua of the
throe, ami least likely to yield to the
others. So easy a conclusion of tl:
subject nlarmud them more than tho
moat obstinate "maintenance of his own
viewa. They woro so much surprised,
indeed, that they did not eoinmuni-
cated thoir astonishment to each othor
on tho spot by anything more than interchange of looks, and parted after a
few bewildered remarks about nothing
iu particular, neither of them venturing to begin upon a subject so delicate,
But when they next met reflection hud
worked upon thom both. Neither had
been ablo to dismiss the matter from
Ilia thoughts. Thoy met, indeed, in
most inappropriate atmosphere for any
auch gravo discussion, at Ellon Mevri
dcw'B houao, where they mutually contemplated each other from opposito
aides of the room, with an abstraction
not usual to either. It had a great
effect upon both of them; also, that
neither Hester nor Edward appeared,
Roland had known beforehand, and
reconciled himself as'woll us he could
to the former want. But Harry did
not know it, and was full of curious
and jealous alarm on the subject, un
able to refrain from a suspicion that
the two who were absent must havo
somehow met and were spending at
least pnrt of the timo together, free
from all inspection -a thing which was
really liapponiiig,tliough nothing could
be more unlikely, moro unprecedented than that it should happen! Itoland did not think thus. He know
very well that Edward had not attempted to hold any intercoiu-.se with Hester, nml felt that, so far ns this was
concerned, ther. wns 110 extra danger
in the circumstances. But Harry's
alarm seemed to confirm all his own
ideas on the oilier matter. He missed
Hoster greatly, for his own part. Not
that hu did not do his best to make
several of the young ladies believe that
to recall himself to her individual recollection wns tho special object of lm
visit—but that was a mere detail of ordinary existence. It waa Hester lie
lltul looked forward to as the chann of-
thu evening, and everything was insipid to him without ber, iu tbo feminine
society around him. It waa not until
after supper, when the fun had bucumo
faster and mure furious, that lie found
himself standing close to Harry, whose
countenance, in the midst of nil this
festivity, wns dull and lowering as 11
wintry sky. Harry did not danco
much. Ho wns a piece of still life liuu-u
thau anything else in hisaistor'shouse;
loyally present lo stand by her, doing
everything she nsked him, but otherwise enduring rather thnn enjoying.
This waa not at all Round's role; but
011 this special evening, when they had
got together after midnight, the one
was not much more lively imd exhil-
iarating in aspect limn thu other.
They stood up together in a dnonvny,
thu privileged retreat of such observers,; and made soiiiuglotiuiy remarks to
each other. ''Geta lo look a little absurd, don't it, this sort of thing, when
you've had a deal-1111 your mind?'
Harry Baid; out of bis moustache. And
"Yes, gaiulydoes get depressing, afier
n while," Roland answered; aftor which
they relapsed again into dead silence,
standing aide by side.
"Mr. Ashton, what do you mean by
it ?" cried Ellen. I have given up
Harry; but you usually do your duty.
Good gracious t I see three girls not
dancing, though I always havo more
men on purpose. I don't know what
you boys mean."
'■J.et us alone, Ashton and I, Nell
we've got something to talk   about,"
said Harry.
His sister looked up. half alarmed
in his face.
"I declare since you've gone so much
into business you're insupportable,
Harry," sho cried. It seemed to bring
the twu men a little closer to each
other when she whisked oil' again into
the oruwd,
'*It's quite true," snid Hurry; " let'H
gu into tlie hall, where tliere'-- a Httli
quiet, 1 do ftailt awfully to talk tt
you. What do you think of Ned giving up that business nt once, when wu
both stood up to him about it ' 1 waa
awfully grateful to you for standing by
mo. I scurculy expected il; but as Tor
Ned giving in like that, I cun scarcely
believo it evon now."
"It waa not much like him. it must
he confessed," Itolnud said.
"Liko him ! He'never did such a
thing in hia lifo boforo. fionemlly lm
doesn't evon pay much attention to
whnt one says. Ho has a way of just
facing you down, however you may
argue, with a sort of smile which
makes me fit to dance with rage sometimes. Uut to-day he was us mock na
Moaea. What do you think ! Idou'l
half like it, for my part."
"You think, after all, ho waa iu the
right, perhaps."
"No I don't. I never could do that,
Tu risk other peoplo in that way is
what I nover would consent to. But a
fellow who is ao full of tight and so ob.
stinate, to givo in-- that's what I don'i
understand."
"You think, perhaps—ho haa not
given in," Roland said.
Harry gave him a bewildered look
half grateful,   half angry.    "Now I
wonder what I've said that has made
you think that 1"
"Nothing that you have said ;  per-
- haps an uneasy, feeling in iny own mind
that it isn't natural, and (hat  I don't
understand it any more thau you."
"Woll, aaid Harry, after a long
breath of relief, "that is juat what I
think. I don't believo fur n moment}
you underatnnd, that Nod, who ia n
roal good fellow rll throUgh"--here ho
made a slight pause and glancod at Rn-
land with a sort of derintire, as if expecting a doubt, which, however, waa
not expressed—"means anything un-
dwhftnd, you know.   Of course I don't
menu (bat. But when a man knows
that be ia cleverer than another follow
he'll just shut up sometimes nnd take
his own way, feeling it's no usu tu argue. 1 don't menu he thinks himself
cleverer than ynu, Ashton, that's a
different afltilr. But he hasn't much
opinion of mo. And in moat things
no doubt he's right, and I've never set
up to havu much of an opinion,!'
"There you are wrong, Vornon,"
said Roland; "yuu havo the better
judgment of tho two. Edwnrd may
bo cleverer, as you say, but I'd rathor
throw iu my lot with you."
"Du you really Buy so ?" cried Harry, lightning up ; " well, thut is vory
kind of you, anyhow. My only principle ia, we've got others to consider
besides ourselves."
"Precisely so," said Roland, who had
hoard this statement already, "and yon
wore quits-right to stick to it; but I
confess I am liko you—not quite comfortable about the other matter. Has
hu means enough of his own tu gu iu
for it ? If so," I should think that was
whnt he intended."
Harry shook Ids head. "Wo had
nono of us any moans," ho said. "Aunt
Catherine took us, as you might say,
off tho streets. Wu wero not oven
very near relations. She's done everything for us. That's why lsny doubly,
to all the other parlies, 'don't lut ub
risk a penny of her money, or of what
sho prizes abovo money, You may
think wo wero not. very grateful to
her," Harry continued,"but that's only
Ellon's way of talking. If thero waa
anything to bo done fur Aunt Catherine that little thing has gut as true a
heart as any one. But wo wero not
wanted, as you may say. Ned waa always the favorite, and so Nell set up a
littlo in opposition, but never meaning
any harm."
"I feel sine of tlmt," said Itoland, with
a wanner inipulao than perhaps Mrs.
Ellen, in her uwn person, would hnve
moved hiin-to, Aud then ho added,
after a pause, "I think I'll open tho
subject again. If Edward Vornon
means to do anything rash, it's better
he shuuld be iu my bunds than ih
some, perhaps, that might bo less scrupulous. I'll seo him to-morrow about
it.    There's lio timclost, at least—"
" That's capital V cried Harry,
warmly,"tbatia exactly what I wanted.
I don't liko tu ask you, but that's acting like a true friendjtind if, as a private person, there's anything I could
do to back him up—only not to touch
Vernon's, yuu know—"
Their privacy was broken in upon by
the swarm of dancers pouring into tho
coolness of tho hall as the dance ended;
but up to the moment when the assembly broke up, Harry continued, by
an occasional moaning look now and
then across the heads of the others, to
convey his cheorful confidence in Roland, mid assurance that all would go
well. Ashton, too, had in himsolf a
certain conviction that it must bu su.
He was not quite su cheerful as Harry,
for the kind of operations into which
Edward's proposal might bring him
wure not to his fancy. But tho very
nuluuin charge laid upon him by the
old peoplo had never faded frum his
memory, and Catherine Vernon in
hemdf had made, a warm impression
upon him. He liad been received hore
as into a new homo—he, who knew no
home at all; everybody had been kind
to him. He hnd mot here Iho one girl
whom, if he ever could make up his
mind tu marry (which was doubtful),
he would marry. Everything bom-
biuml m endear Redborough to him.
Ho had an inclination even (which is
Having a great deal) to auorifice himself
in some small degree in order to savo
a hoart-breiik, a possible scandal, iu
this cheerful and peaceful piano. VIA
ward Vernon, indeed, itl himself wai
neither peaceful or cheerful : but he
was important lo ihu preservation uf
happiness 'ind comfort here. Therefore Roland's resolution wns taken.
He hail come on purpose tn dissuade
nnd prevent ; hu made up his mind
now to further and securo the management uf this over-bold venture, since
no butter might be. He knew nothing, nor did any but the writer know
ahylhiiig of the leller which Catherine
Vernon a buflur Imd carefully deposited
m tlie pnstbag, and sent into Rudhu-
rmigh tui hour or two before thia conversation, lu be dispatched by tin
night mail. The night express froti
the north called at ItedboroUglifltatioi
about midnight,,-md many people liked
lu travel by it, arriving iu town in the
morning for their day's business, not
much the worse, if they had goud
nerves—for there was only une good
train in the day.
Next murning, accordingly, just
aftur Hester had returned with Emina
frum thut guilty and agitated walk
which she had taken with the hope of
meeting Edward aud hearing something from him about his mysterious
communication uf the previous night,
Roland, too, set out with much the
same purpose, with a grave sense of
embarking on an enterprise he did nnt
seo the end of, Ho met tho twu girls
returning, aud stopped to apeak to
them.
"Hester has been at Redborough
this morning already," Emma said.
"I tell her she should have buen at
Mrs. Morridew's laat night, Roland.
It was a very nice dance—tho vory
nicest of all, I think; but perhaps
that is became I am su soon going
away. A regular thing is so nice—
always something tu look forward to;
and you get to know everybody, and
whu suits your step best, and nil that.
I have enjoyed it to very muoh, It is
not like town, tu be sure, but it is so
friendly and homely. I shall miss it
nbovo everything when I gu away,",
"It was unkind not to come last
night, my only chance," said Roland.
He had no conception that Hester
cuuld havu tho smallest share in tho
grave business of which hia mind was
full, ami, grave as it was, his mind was
never too deeply engaged in anything
for this lighter play uf eye and voico.
She scemud tu wake up from a sort of
abstraction, which Emma's prattle had
not disturbed, when he spoke, and
blushed wiili '-vident excitement under
his glance. There was iu her, too, a
sort of cdtiscionanoss, almost of guilt,
which ho could not understand. "I
hope you wore sorry," he added, "nnd
wero not moro agreeably occupied—
which would bo au additional unkiml-
I10S3."
"I am afraid I can't say I'm sorry,"
Hor color varied: her uyes fell. She
was not lhe same Heater she had been
even last night; something had happened to the girl. It Hashed across;
his mind that Edward had been absent
too, which gavo a sting of pique and
jealousy to hia thoughts; but he rensured
himself, rememboring that thoso two
never mot except at the Merridews.
Whoro cuuld thoy moot—Edward, who
conformed to all Catherinu Vernon's
ways, though with resentment and repugnance, and Hester, who would conform to none of them? He was glad
to remind himself of this us he walked
011, disturbed by hor look, in .which
there seemed so much' that had nut
boen there before.
