The findffct Speech.
As the budget speech of the
financn minister is UBitnlly considered
the most important speech of tlie
session, we need offer no apology for
publishing the following lengthy re
port, taken from the Colonist of
Tuesday:
Hon. Mr. Robson miid he would not
long occupy the attention of tho house in
the delivery of. the .Budget speech, espe-
olony1ri\iewdf the-fact Wat hon. mem-
hers wore anxious to get away to tlieir
homes. The estimated had boon before
the house sufficiently lung to enublo
members to study and understand them.
In the estimates for 1883-4 the sum of
$30,000 WOI put down as the revenue
from land sales for the wbole yenr, while
for only six months of that period more
than $37,000 was received from thut
source. The government anticipated
during the last half of the current fiscal
year a revenue of 850,000 and fur the
twelve mouths 887,000, or t}57,000 more
than the government, from the outlook
last spring, expected to receive. From
Umber teases there was an excess over
the estimate of 8250; in froo miners'
license there waa an excess of $'2,400
over tho estimate for tho year; in general mining receipts there was an excess
of 81,500; in licenses there would he a
falling off under the eathnato of $10,000;
from flues, fees, etc., thero would be an
excess of 81,000. In road' tolls there
was a falling off from the estimate of
$11,200. But taking the various items
of revenue together for the current fiscal
year they showed un excess over the estimate of a year ago of 850,184. (Cheers,)
Tho attention of the houao waa next directed to the revenue siuee 1SSI, by
whicli it was shown that the estimates
of the lute government were generally in
excess of the actual receipts while there
was every reason to l-eHovu tlmt the surplus for the current fiscal year ivoulil he
JIOO.OOO. Tho total estimated revenue
for the year was $070,000 nud the total
expenditure would he 8504,OSS—allowing
a surplus of more than 8100,000, The
amount expended on public works since
1880 was us follows:

It would be seen that the amount proposed to be expended this year was considerably more than double that of any
preceding yesr, (hear). He nelicvod hon.
gfutlemen woyld be gratified with this
showing, when  they remembered   tho
paltry Bums of 870,000 or 380,000 which
were voted iu previi-u-- .vear-i   Tho country had hail to go without roads aud
bridges and public buildings to tho muni
fest injury of the province as n whole.
Tho amount uow asked wns the biwt tent
of the good that is really being done witli
the revenue.   British Columbia waa a
country of   magnificent distances, ami
much of it wns so inaccessible as to requite a large expenditure on public account  to administer  the  government.
Educational items had risen from §03,-
428 in 1883, to 831,715 in 1884-5.   Him.
gentlemen would see that tbo expenditure on this account was creeping up;
but the house would uot, after ita strong
expression of feeling on tho high school
clause of the school bill, object to voting
this  large sum.   The government hud
felt it incumbent on them to provide a
common school education for every child
in the province! mid the house had dc
cided that wherever there were twenty
children who possessed the requirements
there should also ho a free high school
established.   The total number of school
districts would bo 07; ef schools, 75; and
of teachers, 80.   Re did uot think the
educational system was what it should
bo for the money. Considerable improvement might be made, and he intended to
give the system Ida earliest attention
during tho present year so an to place it
on a more satisfactory basis. (Hear.}   It
would be admitted that tho financial outlook was more satisfactory than ever before.   Tho great aim of the late government had beeu tie jog along with a small
revenue aud to keep the expenditure
down to. the lowest notch, so that thoy
might make both ends meet.   That was
a commendable purpose sometimes; but
there were times when money should he
borrowed wisely and exjwndod judicious
ly to meet the requirements of a growing country,   l'uople were formerly left
to.   struggle   along  without   roads  or
bridges, over wliich they might get their
produce to a market.   The present government proposed to change that condition of  things, and they had made it
their lirst duty to bring about a settle-
pleat of all the matteia'in dispute with
Canada.   A year ago the graving dock
was going on from bud to worse, und
When this government came iutu power
they found that the dock was lining carried ou by tho day, and thu work wus
costing three ur four times what it would
hav  cost if done by contract. The leader
of the opposition would tell the house
that the nook was costing tbe country
nothing;  but  hs  (Ron.  Mr.  Robsou),
showed that from 1880 to 1883 the dock
had cost tho government each year a very
large sum of money indeed.   There wus
m fixed sum to he given by the dominion
and imperial governments for tbe dock,
end If that sum was exceeded tho excess
would have to be met by the province.
He had good grounds for saying that the
dominion  government would have repudiated all responsibility for the expenditure by day's work.   Tliis government had not only succeeded iu inducing
the dominion government to accent tlio
responsibility of  the over-expenditure,
but had induced thein to refund to tho
province 8250,000 besides.   The government had got rid of a white elephant,
not given it away, as bad been said, because nature had stipulated that it must
remain  at Esquimalt forever.   It had
been estimated that the dook would coat
from  8800,000   to 81,000,000.   If tho
work-had gone on as the lato government
had intended, it would have cost 82,000,.
000.   The province had been saved the
expenditure of from81,000,OOOto81,600,-
000, and had got back Its money, (hoar).
For a long term of years after completion
the legislature would have been asked
session after session for from 85,000 to
512,000 to maintain the .dock, In
ominion hands the dook would bo a
better dock and lower rates would be
ohargod vessels for dooking then if it
had remained provincial property, and
the advantage to the provinco would
therefore be greater. The Dominion
had now a direct interest in promoting
the advancement of British Columbia
tn this regard by attracting all the ship*
ping possible and to induce the imporial
goVinuaeut to maintain * fleet at Esqui
mau. It was an astonishing thing iu
this province for a finance minister to
stnnd np nnd announce a surplus of 8100,-
000. There was leas likelihood of tho government being disappointed in their estimate for the current yoar th.in ihey were
iu thoir estimate of laat year, an, i thut estimate ■ had far exceeded all anticipations.
Ho believed it would bo found that the
estimate of revenue now made would
ho exceeded. The hon. gentleman opposite had thrown up his hat at a possiblo
surplus of §15,000, obtained by cheese
paring; but what hnd h" jtbjynyof the
flattering exhibit now presented? Uritish Columbia was throbbing nnd pulsating with forces and influences that
would make her the goin province of the
Dominion, and should havo nn opportunity to ride forward to that goal which
her great natural wealth entitled her to
gain. In addition to settling all diil'or-
encoB with Canada this government had
had map.i and pamphlets descriptive of
tho proviuce printed for circulation
abioad.. When they ,c*me. i^to office
they Mind stowed' away iu tliu kinder
room some G0(J copies of Chittenden's
book ou the province and 1,000 copies
of the Wist Short. They were covered
with dust and cobwebs, while the world
was crying out -for information respecting, llritisli Columbia; somo even did
not know where it waa. Thi-: government put thoae documents undor cover
aud sent them abroad with others; the
result waa a steady Slow of immigration
from other countries". The Misrqtiis of !
Lome bad beeu foremost iu I'io good
work, and while the government did .
not claim all the credit for bringing j
about the change they thought they i
might modo-tly claim a share (hear,
hear). Tho government had appointed
an agent-general at London \\ ho was
working assiduously to benelit Llio country, nnd anothor agent-general at Taris, ■
who was looking well after our inter- i
ests, Similar olliei-rs would be Appoint* '
ed at Toronto aud other lary centers \
and the result of all this is that there j
had beeu a very satisfactory Influx of
population of a desirable character.
Many who came Inst fall were representative mon Who were here to Bee for
others as agents, and uu their reports to
different neigjiborho <ds would greatly
depend the immigration of thu coining
season. Thero wan reason to tear that
tlio immigration would be larger tii
could be well handled; therefore t
government had asked the house to
vote a large sum for roads an bridges
uo that the new comers might reach tiie

Election Frauds.
"We lmvo several times referred
to tbe groat mtml.ei* of frands
which hnve been perpetrated in con
nection with the Dominion and
local elections in tlie cast. The
pructice of bribery nnd corruption,
in spite of nll statutes to tlio con
trary, seems to be increasing. It
has happened that persons holding
largo contracts from the Dominion
government, and persons who had
large claims aguinst the government,
have made themselves conspicuously
active in election campaigns, and
have undoubtedly spent lnrge sums
in bribing the electors. The ouso of
John Shields, of Section B. notoriety, is an example. Tho facts
brought to light by the courts in
connexion with the Muskoka nml
West Middlesex flections revealed
a condition of things which, if allowed lo continue, must subvert lhe
whole foundation of popular gov*
eminent. For these reasons we are
glud to observe thut another attempt
is being made to shut the door
agninst these professional hribers,
Mr. Casgruin has introduced into
the Cauudian house of commons
the following brief but drastic bill;
Whosoever, for tho purpose of assisting in any election tu the Parliament of Canada, or to the Legislature
of any uf the Provinces uf Canada,
while performing nuy such contract
as in the lirst section of tho said AcL
mentioned, or awaiting payment in
respect of any such contract, or having held any such contract or awaited
payment ub aforesaid, within twelve
months previous, or who, holding or
having held any such contract, within
twelve months thereafter Bubacrihes,
furnishes, gives or promises to givo or
furnish any sum of money or coin-id
eration whatsoever, either directly or
indirectly, by himself or by the agency
of another person on hia behalf, to
any person wh msoever, jb guilty of u
misdemeanor, und shall he liable, ut
thu discretion of tho court, to a penalty of not less ti.au one thousand dollars, together with imprison ment j for
a term of not less thnn one month nud
not more than twelve months; and
default of payment of the penalty so
incurred, tho offender shall be imprisoned for a further term of twelce
month unless such penulty be sooner
paid; and the oButulur shall, in addition, forfeit all right and ohtim to
recover any payment in connection
with such contract.
No)ono who sinderely desires the
purity of the franchise con Id Iind fault
with this measure. It is severe,
but the practices at which it aims
require severe trentment. No person could buffer from it unless he
was thoroughly bad. But there arc
other modes of bribery practiced
wliich Mr. Casgrnin's bill does not
reach. We believe pure elections
cannot be guaranteed so long aa
personal canvassing is permitted.
There should be u statute forbidding all perjuiml canvassing, Candidates ami tlii'ii agnnta must bo al
lowed the utmost freedom iu ad
dressing tlie people and explaining
their views on public questions.
This is necessary to secure tin intelligent vote. Cut personal solid
tation of votes tdiou d be prevented.
It leads very often to bribery, iu is
undignified, and it destroys, to some
extent at least, the independence of
the candidate. A cuudidate who
begs und prays for your vote can
scarcely be expected to act witli
independence in n matter where
your personal interests are seriously
concerned. We hopo the house of
commons will pass Mr. C.sgraiti'a
bill, and adopt wliatover other measures may be necessary to slay the
flood of corruption whicli is sweeping over the land.
A flood Showing.
The budget speech, a report of
which will bo found on the first
page, must strike those who peruse
it as the result of a progressive nnd
statesmanlike policy, It is true
ii considerable portion of the esti
mated receipts comes from the dry-
dock refund, and does not belong to
ordinary revenue. But if the late
government had remained in otlice
this dock money would not have
been available. On tho contrary,
the province would have been asked
year by year for further advances
towards tha completion of a dock
which a great muny peoplo believe
has been botched from beginning to
end. The provincial secretaiy stated to the bouse that lie hnd good
ground for saying that tbe Domin
ion government would, in uny event,
We repudiated nil responsibility
for the money expended by day
labor. We oan very well understand the probability of such a contingency. The work done by day
labor ii laid to have oost just about
twice aa much aa that done by contract. Notwithstanding the very
liberal appropriation! made for public Worka ]«*t vntr, it ii gratifying
to lisrn that them will probably i
be a surplus dining the current lis
cal year amounting to $100,000.
When tbo estimates were brought
down lust year the party organs and
opposition politicians told lis tlio
estimated revenue would never l
realized, and that there would be u
deficit. In some things the revenue
has fallen short of tlie finance minister's calculations, but in other
instances these calculations have
been gisully exceeded, The revenue
from sales of crown lands, it is expected, will read) the sum of 887,
000, being 857,000 more than the
estimate. This one item shows how
much more rapidly the countryis
advancing than had been expected
even by peoplo who were considered
over-sanguine. We nre glad to see
that such large amounts are being
set apart for public improvements.
For the current fiscal year the appropriation under this heud is $234,-
718, and for the coming fiscal year
it is 8254,075. Up to the time
when lhe present government came
into office tlio largest appropriation
for public works in any year was
8142,148. The results of the neglect of the late government are
everywhere to be seen, Our public buildings are in a condition of
miserable decay, our bridges are rotting, and in many parts of the
country much-needed roads have
become impassable. The people of
the mainland have had a standing
grievance against former governments because the bulk of the rev-
enne was being expended on Vancouver Island, where roads are not
so much needed, while the main
land was Buffered to remain without
any proper menus of intercommunication. Every person who has
traveled by land on Vancouver
Island and the mainland is struck
by the marked contrast in the
character of the roads. We com
mend the present government because lhey have, moro than any
other, manifested n disposition to do
tiio mainland justice. They have
distinctly announced that the dock
money will be spent in permanent
improvements ou the mainland, in
addition to the share of ordinary
revenue to which we are entitled.
h would be very easy to spend
§100,000 in the construction of roads
in New Westminster district alone,
ond that expenditure would not
begin to put our roads in as good
a condition as tliose of Vancouver
Island. The finance minister announced that the government would
ask the house for authority to borrow a sum of money sufficient to
enable them to carry on the proposed works in the event of the
Dominion government failing to
curry the settlement bill. This we
conceive to be a wise provision.
There is \pry little doubt but the
settlement bill will puss; but there
is nothing certain in politics or war,
and our public works cannot be left
at the uieicy of u pariy fiidit. It
is absolutely necessary that our
roads uml other improvements should
go on. Jf the present resources of
the province aro not sufficient for
that purpose, let us borrow. The
advantage rentdting from the judicious expenditure of borrowed
money at this time will be vastly
yi enter tban the interest we may
have lo pay. There can be no satis
faction in jugging on at llm Ninil
pace which lias characterised this
province for loo long a period, and
we me glad tbat at this imports tit
juncture the affairs of the province
ate in the hands of un able and progressive government.

The Square Biu.—Muyot* Dickinson recoived a telegram frum Victoria
on Thursday stating that the bill to
enable this city to sell certain of its
publio squares had passed the house
This is very welcome news. Through
tha sale of these squares the city will
be enabled to undertake schemes of
improvement whicli would otherwise
be impossible, and at the aunu time
the lands thus disposed of will become
revenue-producing. We are exceedingly glad that this scheme, which has
so often beau discussed and urged by
The Columbian, has at last been accomplished.
Thb British Empire.—The population of the United Kingdom in 1881
was 34,884,848 exclusive of iihsHutees
in the army, navy, and shipping service and the inhabitants of a fow small
islands in the British seas, numbering
in all 366,534. By comparison with
the returns ef 1871 the increase is
3,241,482 or 10.7 pur cent., during the
decade, against 8.6 per cent, during
the preceding ten years. Tin- population of British India nnd Ceylon was
at the same timo 206,637,887, and of
other possessions 12,464, 307, making
the aggregate population of the British Empire in 1881 264,187,030, exclusive of some 50,000,000 of f-iudntory
and subject tribes and peoples in India
not strictly parts of the Empire but
more or less tributary. This makes
the whole population under the sway
of the British Queen throe years ago
304,005,649, nearly equal to the whole
inhabitants of Continental Europe.
Hudson Bay Route,—A gentleman
who resided for seven years at Moose
Factory, and who is well acquainted
with the whole region of Huds- in Bay,
writes to the Winnipeg Sun hat the
iml.v place in these waters where ioe
can interfere with navigation iB the
channel on the northwest Bide of
Mansfield Island at the entrance of the
buy. The ice frum the bay and sometimes the lee from Fwx OhiYitnti. and
Hudson Straits, driven in Ik uttsiei'ly
winds, is drawn into this narrow channel and chokes it. Sailing vessels are
often considerably delayed in this way,
hut as the swing of tbe tide opens at
teruately the ends of the pns-mu-', steam
vessels can work their way through
with little difficulty. Hu says there is
little doubt that the channel on the
southeast side of Mausiield bland is
deep, and safe enough fm* vessels, and
always free from ice, and that he only
reason the Hudson Bay Company's
vessels never attempt it is that they
have uo chart of it. His opinion is
that in ordinary years steam veni-ck
may without difficulty or danger navigate Hudson Bay from Juue to De
cetu hor.

named Frank Wilson was brought up*
before Mr. McGillivray, J P., at Port
Moody, charged with being drunk and
disorderly. He was fined $25 or 3
mos., and costs ot $5 were added, that
being the charge for hriigin^ him to
the prison iu this city. After having
beeu committed some persons discovered that the magistrate had exceeded
his powers iu imposing so severe
penalty. Application was mado to the
supreme court and the man was liberated. We believe theie is uu doubt

lie it therefore resolved, that'every
constitutional means should be adopted
to uphold the constitutional rights
mid privileges of tlie province, and to
resist, uny invasion of thesame." Mr.
Davie held that an invasion of the
rights of the province was attempted
by the Dominion government. The
province had the exclusive right to
regulate tbis traffic under the 11. X
Act; yet hist year the Dominion parliament had passed an act to nssutm-
t'le exclusive control of the matter.
It might be to the advantage of the
province to curtail the traffic; but tht'
province should regulate it aiid not
tiie Dominion. If we gave way to
t he Dominion in this mutter they
uould frustrate tdl our legislation on
tjiis subject and municipalities would
be deprived of a large portion of their
revenue. The liquor licenses ot Victoria yielded 813,100 per annum; but
if the Dominion law went into force
the revenue from that source would be
only $4,400. If we submitted to thi*-
r icn-aehineiit there would bo others
to contend with soon. • Be disclaimed
ail hostility to the temperance move
ment; but held that abovo nud boyoinl
everything the rights of the proviuce
must bo upheld.—.Mr. Armstrong baid
the matter rested on constitutional
points dud he feared that the good
feeling uf the province witli the Do
minion would bu disturbed if tbo resolution was passed.—Mr. Grant wannlj
favored the resolution which, ho said,
would strengthen tho hands of the
g -verumeut, in maintaining the rights
of the province.—Tho motion was
carried.
SATURDAY.
A further discussion took place on
the consolidated Innd law, after which
a clause was added to the ameudui
municipal net empowering ihe imposition of a liuunse fee of §1000 n yeat
on all lii|uor houses in cities ami §250
in townships. It was explained Ihut
tins clause would be enforced only in
the event of the new Dominion liquor
law coming into operation.—Tho bill
preventing Cinnamon from acquiring
crown lands was passed.
MONDAY,
The duy was devoted chiefly to a
discussion of tho estimates, growing
unt of tho budget speech whieh will
be found on the lirst page of this
paper. Mr. Beaven found great fault
with the estimates and general policy
if Iho government. Hon. Mr. Smithe,
Air. Dunsmuir, Mr. Pooley, and others
expressed satisfaction. Even Mr.
Duck said ''the appearance of the
estitimtos was very satisfactory," and
Mr, Galbraith did nut conceal his
approval.

A gentleman in this city received a

letter is dated at Spokane Falls, W. T.,
Feb. 4tb, and says: "I hove not been in

NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
St. PfiTEKsiitma, Jan. 29. — Tlio
greatest consternation, nearly amounting to a panic, lias beeu created in idl
depart incuts of tho Russian Government by the unusual activity of tho
Nihilists tho past few days. A Nihilistic plot to poison the Imperial Family wns discovered this morning. Since
tho murder of Col. Soudiekin tho food
whicli is supplied for use at the Imperial table is carefully examined by
experts beforo being sont to tho table.
This morning the experts, in their
usual examination, disclosed the fact
that the bread which was intended for
use at tho Imperial bicakfast-tablo,
was thoroughly impregnated with
strychnine, and thut a small quantity
of tho bread eaten by a person would
produce death almost instantly. On
the head of thia discovery telegrams
wero received announcing that a policeman named SobieluiT, liad been
murdered by tlio Nihilists at Kharkoff
early this morning, und another stating
that it serious rising has occurred in
Littlo Russia, and asking that troops
be sent at onco to quell the insurrec*
tion.
Washington, Jan. 29. — Senator
Hour, of Massachusetts, who yeBterday reported from the Judiciary Committee Edmunds' Anti-Polygamy Dill
iu u modified form, suid in reference
to tho measure to-night that tho most
serious blow to Mormonism is the
clause providing thut a majority of the
trustees of tho Mormon Church corporation shall be appointed by the
President and approved by the Senate.
This section of the bill gives Congress
power to limit the real estate property
that can be held by tho Church, und it
next empowers the Attorney General
to institute proceedings to forfeit lunds
improperly held by the corporation,
This, together with the section annulling tlm charter of the perpetual emigration fund company, will prove, in
the opinion of tho Senator, a most
fonniddble weapon of olienoo against
this accursed blot on our civilization.

the purpose of enabling the syndicate

Ottawa, Feb. 12.—The pnmphlot
issued by the Grand Trunk railway
company protesting ngainst the proposed loan to the Canadian Pacific
railway caused a sensation in the
houso und lobbies. Tho pamphlet

Mr. Rickson, manager of the Grand

protesting against further aid being
given by the government to the Canadian Pacific railway so long as that

$3,000,000 without any adequate guarantee being taken that these funds
will not be used, as has been the case
in the past, on works wholly apart

LoNiuiN, Feb. 8. -- Ju accordance
with previous uiiiininicement, Parnell
oSbroa In tlioOoiuinons'tin amendment
to the address in reply to tho Queen's
speech". The amendment severely censured tho policy of the government in
hvlaud, assorting that it has failed to
tuuupiilizo the people, has wantonly
prohibited public meetings nnd inter-
torod with speech, and has permitted
magistrates to publicly applaud the
conduct of Lord Rossmoro, who had
been superseded as Justice of the
Ponco for disturbing the public order
and inciting ill-will and strife botween
diil'mi'iifc classes iu Ireland. The
amendment further demands the im-
niadiiite abandonment of the policy of
stimulating Stftto immigration of the
Irish. In tho courso of the remarks
with which he accompanied his motion,
Fumell assorted that tho recent visit
of Northcoto to Ireland had been an
exciting causo of civil disturbance.
The Orutige outrages were, iu Iub
opinion! a gravo misfortune to tho
Conservatives, whom Northcoto hud
dragtfod at his heels, and discredited

platform during the recent attempt to
introduce the National League into

London, Feb. 15. — Papers have
been presoni.-jd to parliament regarding Gen. Gordon's mission in the Soudan. Among them aro Sir Evelyn
Uariiig's instructions to Gen, Gordon
regarding the revolution in Soudan.
Gen. Gordon is given the fullest liberty
to uso his own discretion m tho premises,, £100,000 being placed to his
credit, and additional funds to bo
granted if necessary. Gen. Gordon's
memorandum- Jan. 2nd, in which ho
unfolds his plan for restoring the petty
sultana to their ancestral power, leav-
El Mahdi out of the calculations, is
also among the papers. He advises
that the arsenals be handed over to
lhe various sultans. Tho greatest difficulty will be in the disposal of arsenals
at Khartoum. Dongi-In, and Knssoiitu,
where thero are no sultans, because
these places have sprung up sinco the
moslem coiK|uest. He nd vises that
final decision be postponed until the
Inhabitants have been consulted. Gen.
Gordon believes the bulk of El Mahdi's
troops at El Obeid will refuse to cross
the Nile. He thinks only 4,000, chiefly blacks, will eross. and that the latter will desert El Mahdi if offered fair
terms. He considers it would bu a
mistake to re-couijuor the Soudan for
the Khedive, as it would be a useless
possession on account of the deadly
climate.
LONDON, Fob. 16.—A telegram from
Geu. Gordon states: I nm proceeding
to Khartoum, uud believe you noed
have no further anxiety about this part
of the Soudan. The people gieat and

NELLIE'S   MEMORIES
Louie turned her dreamy eyes on
him with a slow pleasant smile,
"Thank you so much—1 am suro
you read very nicely—-but I nyree
with you, that half an hour of thai
monotonous voice is stifltciunt nt a
time. Pray toll ine what hour will
be moBt convenient to ynu to-morrow;
Ifl am not too much engaged I will
be ut your command. Only do read
a little louder next time, for your low
voice and tho dusk together lias made
me quite sleepy; I think I must have
a nap on my own sufa. Gi od-hye,
Mr. Tutor. Oh, your chair U on my
dress," and two delicnto littlo folds
crossed Louio's forehead. Tlio only
timo sho aver cams nenr a frown wna
whon nny one thus ruthlessly trampled
her train. "Oh, you careless buy,
you havo torn the orupe."
"Have I?" ho replied, laying a forefinger on tlio fragment ho had raveled
out; "I am very sorry for it, Miss
Louie; but bucIi tears as these can be
fitly repaired by your nimble fingers;
it is only tho rents of hurt pride nnd
wounded esteem that you will find
very hard to patch up one of these
dayB," and he smiled coldly, and let
her go.
"What a character you are, Herwald," laughed Louie, as she sailed
away; "quite a well-bound edition of
proverbial philosophy; but you are
too clever for me, or ratlior, I am too
stupid for you—go and talk to Nellie."
But Herwald did nothing of the
kind, only Bottled himself to his musing with averted eyes, and when I
addressed him by name, merely
looked up vacantly aud did nut answer.
"Herwald, I want to talk to ynu,"
"Oh, did you speak, Nellie, I was
in a brown study, and did not lioar
you before, I nm afraid. What a raw
gusty afternoon it is; if the snow
wouid but hold off a little, I would
go down and meot Dudley. By thb
Bye, where's Katie?"
"Down at Stony Cleft; she has
gone to visit old Cobbler Chub-bins for
Louie; little Bill, the youngest, issii-lc,
nnd the mother is down with tlio
lheutnatism; she started off well laden
with bottles and bags au hour ago.
Hal pleaded hard to go with her, but
Dudley said it was not fit."
'•Fit!—what a crazy lass it is; she
will coma by a snowy death one of
these days, and then Bruco will marry
Ada."
"Heaven forbid!" I ejaculated.
"Why, I see no harm m tho girl, j
ahe has a pretty faco, and is very good-
natured; and that is nil a man like
Bruce  ever asks for.     Kitty is tot
much of a termagant for him to manage; though, if I wero ho "
"Well, Herwald, what would happen then?"
"Why, tho curls might go to Jet
cho, and I would marry Katie ti
morrow; ay, in Bpite of her sauoiness
and vixen's tongue, I would; for a
better and bonnier las3 never lived
this side Jordan. One docs not meet
with angels nowadays; and, murk my
word, Nellie, it is my belief, you could
not find a sweeter or more wholesome
nature than hers if yon were to search
from hero to Tweed. It is ill judging
her now, when tho girl is sure uud
suffering, and would fain be a helpmeet for an Adonis; what a queerly-
assorted couple they will make one of
these days."
"You think, then, that it will come
to that?"
"Think—aro you blind or bewitched,
Nelln miu, that you cannot read aright
all this pretty plaguery and not; ur,
are yon so much above your box, that
you do not understand these tempestuous devices and alternate seasons of
etiirm and calm? If you wero a philosopher, you would know that such a
wild colt from the Highlands could
never bo broken iu without plenty of
trouble, and by u practiced hand, and
Bruco is not good at sueh things; ho
haa too much vanity and personality]
und su sho frets at llio wook curb liu
imposes, nnd rears and grows rampant
at his lightest lash, I crave your pardon, but one of those days I shall toll
Bruce he is au idiot, and docs not understand a woman in the least; what
is the uso of perpetually arousing her
jealousy, and then making foolish
amends'? Ha must be linn, and take
her by storm, as it wero."
"You think, then, the fault lies
with him?"
"Tho fault of mismanagment and
want of decision, but I think she is a
little vixen to him, Nell; one of those
girls who drive a man crazy boforo
marriage, and nre like lambs afterwards, model wives, in fact. But
don't trouble your head about thein;
one of those days, when she has irritated his vanity, spurred up his indolence, and driven bis dignity to tho
winds, he will turn round upon her,
and, like tho Bruce of old, conquer
and ttiko captive in a breath."
"Will the course of true lovo never
run smooth V I sighed. "Alas, poor
Kitty; but Herwald, it was not of her
that I wanted to speak, but of yourself. Oh, you cannot think how bitterly you have disappointed me,"
"II" ho exclaimed, in BUptfso, "I
hope you arc joking, Nellie;",■md ho
sat down on tho rug at my feet, in
company with Mux, mid lixed his eyes
reproachfully on my faco. "Ah! I Bee
you nre not serious; you havo a littlo
smile just dimpling one corner of your
mouth. I ball believed I was cumins-
ju for a regular lecture."
"Don't Hatter yourself thnt you will
wholly escape one," I replied. "I hnve
been wanting an hour's quiet talk with
you one of these threo days, and you
see the Fates and the snowy duy are in
my favor, and now you cannot escape."
"AU right," he returned, caressing
Max's head, as it rested itself on his
knee; "all right, firo awny, only don't
be surprised if I go to sleep in the
middle, like Louie."
I caught at the name.
"There, you hnvo introduced tho
topic yourself, lt was of hor that I
wished to speak to you. Oh, Uerwuld!
it is very sad for me to seo that ynu do
not like my sister."
Ue started and pushed the dog from
him rather impatiently, but did not
answer.
"It was bad enough," I continued,
"to feel that thero wiib strong preju.
dice against her before you mot; but I
thought that, after a day or two, whon
you saw how we lovod and trusted her,
that such an unfavorablo impression
might wear off. 1 hnuw that her first
words to you were indifferent, and not
flattering, but I hoped you would make
excuse for that too; and sinco thou Millies treated you woll In hor own way,
and striven hard to yield you tho tev-
treuce you exact from thoso who knuw
you."
"I exact," he returned hotly; "I
txaot, Nellie?"
"Yhh, eiitet—unt  by manner and
wold of mouth, but by the dignity ot
your manhood, by the very strength
and power of yonr intellect—a power
that haa made itself felt in her somewhat dense nature, and in spite of—"
I hesitated for a lit word.
''In spile of iny want of stature and
air of extreme youth," he went on,
calmly; "why do I Iodic so absurdly
young, I wonder I you bonrd her call
mo a boy just now; I don't fancy Dudley would mind such a trifle one jot—
rather like it, in fact;—but it grates on
me somehow, perhaps in the tone moro
than in the words, I dare sny I do look
very much the boy to her, but no one
ever called mo so before; nud," he
continued, with an uneasy laugh, "it
hurts my touchy dignity."
"I know it does; she has tho unhappy knack of doing that very often;
but when you know it is not meant,
can you not forgive her those little
speeohea, hard as they aro to bear."
"Do you think, then, that I treat
her so badly ?" he inquired, iu n low
voice.
"My denr Herwald, no; how cau
you imagine stn-h a thing? I don't believe you could treat nny ono badly,
man, woman, or child; what 1 moan is
this, that wore Louio other than herself, she must have folt herself sorely
hurt nt tho ooiifcrnst in your maimer to
us two; such wainith of cordiality to
Ihe one, such frigid politeness to the
other."
"I can't help that," ho answered,
hurriedly; "would you havo me bohave coldly to my friund V
"No, indeed; but, Herwald, she
would bo your good friend too, if you
would suffer her."
He shook hia head,
"I tell you she would, if you did not
repulse her by the sternness nnd austerity of your manner. In her heart 1
am convinced she has a great esteem for
you."
"I do not think it, Nell; because
you aro pnrEhil yourself, you imagine
every ono else must be so too; there is
not a greater mistake iu the world,
But of one thing I am assured, that if
I havo erred by reticence, ut least I
have shown no want of courtesy or
kindness."
"No, if by courtesy you mono tho
decorous punctilio of etiuiiette, on
which you prido yourself, like u highbred gentleman as yon are. I know
that you treat ua liku queona, rising
when we rise, nnd sotting open tho
door for us to sweep through, placing
footstools and listening with inclined
head; why, L.iuie herself said tlint you
spoiled us for tho society of other
young men."
"Did she Ray that?"
"Yes, indeed she did, that, and
much moro too, only I won't mako
you vain; and now, Herwnld, promise
mo that you will bo more cordial to
her in future."
"I cannot," ho answered, flushing
up; "sho treats me like a boy, sho insults my prido with her placid insolence, she reduces mo to a cipher by
the very grandeur and majesty of her
womanhood; I—a Dclonne, who nover
funred woman's smiles or frowns before
—not that I do fear hers, only she tortures my vanity, she robs me of my
peace. I am accustomed to tho world's
approbation, Nellie, and to a certain
sense of power and dignity, and it does
not I'leaso mo to be annihilated '.'
"You annihilated!" I exclaimed,
"you, who hnve borne her most provoking speeches so patiently; yon, who
have reduced her to a grieved silence
by the very sternness of your eve and
voice; you, whom she censes to allure,
because yon hnvo taught her to distrust her own powers; yuu nre sinning
now, if you like, by the error of a
mod; modesty, or ulso you mo strangely bind to your own merits.'-
"I never was before," he answered,
bitterly; "perhaps such humiliation is
good for ine; it has shown ine, nt least,
that the basis of my character is false
pride and au overweening aelf-estct-in."
"It has shown you nothing of the
kind. Do be scumble, Horwald, and
not look at things from such a morbid
point of view. You urn angry with
Louie, grand, lovcuble creature its she
i.i, because -die has thwarted you this
afternoon."
"Nu Indeed," he answered, eagerly,
"it is not that; I am speaking of the
way she treats ino always; you muat
have noticed her manner yourself."
"Sho does not treat you worse than
other*!; she always does Victimize her
adorers."
"Perhaps so," he replied coldly; and
ns he spoke, the delicateViostrils quivered in their prido; "but yuu know I
iii-ver aspired (o vlio hoilur of being
elected into those favored ranks."
"Exactly, and that is why Queen
Loo protiouncos you aubli an unsolved
enigma; she can't understand your bad
ttiBte in not adoring hor. You must
forgive our capricious beauty, Horwald, and remember she is the spoiled
darling ot the house. Why, I myself
often think it hard that you so constantly refuse her innocent requests."
"Hor requests! her commands you
mean—eonunandB which il obeyed
would lend to other and inore danger
ous ones still. Don't look ut mo a<
reproachfully, Nellie; your rebukes
fall on sterile ground, for I have already learnt to distrust her loo much.
Her patronizing tone I cap and must
boar, but I shall never bo a slave to
her caprices. If site wants any one to
minister to her potty wlfitiis and fancies, she must go to otherfrmoroservile
and more willing to obey."
"If I wore to give you a new name,"
T remarked, jestingly", "I should c:ili
you Herwnld the Flint Heart."
"Nu, you would nol," hu answered,
all at mice melting into a smile bo
Bweet and true, that nll the hard proud
curves iu his face lessened and disappeared, "you would not, for I have
never been flinty to you. Exacting ns
1 am, there's not a whim or fancy pf
yours, Nella min, to winch I would not
gladly submit, no homage too ureal for
me to yield, no token of friendship too
strong for mu to bestow. If you wero
to demand my neck this minute as a
resting-place for that pretty foot, you
should hnve it gladly, nnd every thing
else too that might prove how dearly
I love my adopted sister."
"Even if alio called you her own
poor boy," I replied, laughing'away
the lenrs that wero ready to start.
"Yes, even thou; I don't mind it
from you a bit, it seems natural and
right—nny, I will go further, Nellie;
for notwithstanding all that 1 havo
said, I will try to behave more cordially to your lintel1' and -.vill do it for your
sake, thouuli it should cont mo ever so
great an effort,"
"And you will lav aside that absurd
prefix and call her IlouIOj do, Horwald,
it docs vox inn so to henr it."
"Vox you I" ho answered sadly;
"why, it iB a trifle nt whicli to take
unibrngo, but it shnll bo as you
wish,"
As ho uttered tho lust word, tho
dour opened mid Louio walked in, I
think Jiurwald recognized tho stop,
and tho slow rustle of the silken skirt
across the lloor, but ho kr-pt his eyes
fixed on ihe fire, nnd never moved till
shu enmo up and stood boliind him,
A nofiR!i«d mood was on her, for her
eyes wuru full uf u slumbrous beauty,
and she held her white hands passively
folded before her, and when sho Bpoke
tho rare gentleness of her tone made
Herwald start.*
"I am afraid I vexed you this afternoon, Herwnld, by seeming so little
interested in what you rend; it struck
me suddenly as I lay dreaming in tho
twilight, that you must have thought
ino very ungracious."
He had risen to his foot as she began to speak, and stood leaning against
tho mniitel-pieco with his baud half
shading his eyes, but ho did not answer her immediately, till alio had repeated her question.
"Did I vex you? please, tell mo
frankly."
"A little, Louie; but it is of no
consequence,"
"It iH of great consequence to me,"
she returned, "if I have been unfortunate enough to offend my brother's
friend; but 1 will not believe thnt I
hnve, sinco you call me, of your own
accord, by my rightful name. I have
never yut heard Louie from your lips
before. How is it, Herwald, that we
so completely fail tu understand each
other?"
"I understand you well enough,"
ho replied; "there is no need to increase my knowledge. I know you to
the full, ns well as if I lived with you
all my lifo."
"Then if it be su," she returned,
rather bewildered, "why can we uot
bo bettor friends? Nellie tells me
that it is my fault, nnd that I am perpetually hurting you by my careless
speeches. Is it that that makes you
so abrupt and stern iu your manner to
me/ It «is very strange, for no one
was over stern to mo bofore," and the
fair fnce Hushed distrossedly.
Poor Queen Loo, her scepter was
roughly handled just now; a daring
subject was wresting it from her grasp.
Ah! for all his boyish looks, Louio had
fuuud her match at last, 4
Herwald remained silent.
"I hate those feuds," said indolent
loving Loo, "If I havo erred I will
willingly sue for your pardon; but I
cannot Bee iu what I have done amiss;
—perhaps my faulty humors troublo
you; but at least wo can havo penc^."
"Assuredly," ho answered, coldly.
"Not whilo you look aud speak like
that, How proud yuu are, Horwald
—prouder than all my pride and vanity put together; but I like you in
spite of it, and I would willingly be
your friend, if you would let me.
Speak, Horwald — may we not be
friends?"
So sweetly sued by smile., and outstretched baud, all Herwald's haughty
vapors fell from him liko a cloak, and
for the first timo since ho had entered
Sunnyside ho pressed her hand warmly, while his wyes beamed full ou her
with perfect benignity aud good-will.
"You have well said," he answered
brightly; "I too am a lover of peace.
Yes, we will bo friends."
"And you will not laugh at me, because I am not so clever as Nellie, and
cannot appreciate things as sho dues?"
"Laugh at you!" exclaimed our poor
Quixote, drooping his head, "surely I
lmvo never ao far forgotten your dignity, or mine, as that would lead me
to imply."
"And. you.will not satirize trifles?"
she continued, without heeding his
speech, ' -trii.es whicli may appear
folly to you, but which go far tu make
happy. Ymi must bo lenient,
Herwnld, iu your judgment of luo—
not because I nm mure faulty thnn
others, but because 1 am more independent, nnd cannot brook reproof,
uud hitherto even your silenco bus
reproved mo."
"I will be more caroful in future,"
he responded, humbly; "I am sorry
iu have grieved you,"
"All hard biting comments do grieve
mo, though people think I am as slow
to tool as to lake notice nf them; but,
now you will know better. Do you
really think 1 hnvo so many faults,
Herwald?"
"Do you wish mu to reply truthfully?"
"Or course—as one friend should
answer another."
"Then I think yon have; but they
arc all such ns ean easily bo cured, especially by r,tich a will as lies dormant
within you; if you would but exercise
that patiently and peraeveriugly, they
might soon bo got rid of."
Louie opened her eyes wide, and
laughed saucily,
"I know where to come for compliments, Never * mind, it is a change
to hear the truth and nothing but it,
I get plenty of flattery, even at hptne,
and when I want a wholesome bitter
to counteract its bad influence, I cau
come to you; but like the rest of my
mentors, I shnll soon tire you out, as
I have Dudley and Nellie—Nell, you
naughty child, why do you not apeak
after I havo been keeping my prom
he so faithfully too? Every night this
week, Herwald, she has been begging
and praying me to sny nll this to you,
but 1 hnve nover felt inclined, till I
woke up from my nap this ufturnoon.
and remembered how rude I had been
and now I um tired agr.in; it is dreadfully slow trying tu bo good. One
thing moro; you will resume 'Iu Me-
niuriain' to-morrow."
Herwnld answered with alacrity
that he would.
"And if I got sleepy again you
won't be cross! Como, that is being
a friend iu earnest. Huw warm and
coxy thu rug looks in the tin-light.
Reach ine that scroen, Noll, aud I will
sit and bask iu it a little, till it ia time
to dress for ten. Fancy Katie being
out iu the snow ut this hour. I hope
Bruce has the heart to go out in scare!
of her, What a strango uncanny
thing it ia!" And then ns she sat with
her head against my knee, alio sang
*■■■.;'{ly to herself tbat sweetest of all
Scutch ballads—
"Oh, wort thou in the cauld blast
On yonder lea, on yonder lea;
iMy plnklio to the nngry nirt,
I'd shelter thee, I'd shelter thee.
Or dip misfortune's bitter storms
Around thee blnw, around tho bluw;
Thy Weld should be my bosom,
To share it a', to share it a'.'
"Go on,'' exclaimed Herwnld eagerly, ns her voice sank ut the end of the
first stanza; "oh, do go on.   Nothing
ia so bewitching to mo us song in the
twilight," uud Louie wont on,
"Or were I in the wildest waste,
Sac black and bare, sne black and bare,
The desert were a paradise
If thou wcrt there, if thou wert there.
Or wero I monarch of the globe,
Wi' thee to reign, wi' thee to reign,
Tho brightest jewel in iny crown
Wad be my Queen, wad bo my Queen."
"I wonder if  those aro  Bruce's
thoughts to-night, Nell ?"
"If thoy bo, lio will nover translate
them into such pootical language,"
tinned Horwald, nnd then, nt his
rcqucat, Louio sung hiin one or two
more songs, of the snmo character, to
whieh ho listened with a delight that
for tho lirst time ho did not strive to
conceal,
And thon they fell into a discussion
ou the comparative merits of English
and Scotch ballads, were alike regretful when the entrance of Dudley and
the buys broke up the fireside trio,
