Return of Hip Voyagciirs.
After nil the compliments whicli
liavo   been pnid to tlie Oiuirulirui
voyagenrs
who wont to tlie resist
ance of the Gordon relief expedition,
it is disappointing to iind tlmt thoy
were by no means nil unmitigated
blessing. The returning voyageuis
nrrived at Montreal on the Oth inst.,
and some of tlio olticors und men
■wore tliere interviewed liy a reporter of tlie Star. Generally, the
men were fairly satisfied with tlieir
trip, but the story told by Oapt.
Aumond was Hardly creditable lo
the contingent. Tliis ollicer frankly
admitted tliat the reports of insubordination were true, lie snys lhey
were never satisfied; and wore always complaining, and iniido no attempt to obey orders. Whilo in
Egypt they ignored everything said
to them by tlie British officers, told
tlicni . they were not soldiers, and
were not going to be ordered about
by them, and in every way showed
themselves to be an undisciplined
crowd. Gen. Wolseley stopped their
ram for a while in Egypt, which
gave them great offense. On tlio
way to Cairo they wore chunk and
disorderly, nnd several of them fell
OS' the train and were killed. Alt o-
oelhcr Capt. Aumond did not seem
to be much flattered by the conduct
of his men, who, although expert iu
the management of boats, and capable of much endurance, were to a
great extent failures in consequence
of tho absence of discipline and fondness for rum. It is too bad that
the reputation of the Canadian contingent has been so seriously marred
by the national curse -drink.
More Railway Imposition.
Mr. Onderdonk, contractor for
this end of the C.P.R, issues the
following notice: "Tlioonly stations
where goods coining by boat will bo
received for transport by tho railway arc Port Hammond and Port
Moody. If delivered elsewhere they
will not be forwarded." Last year
a similar notice was published, but
we had hoped to sen nn improvement in the traffic arrangements
this season. Wo have pointed out
the evil results of this arrangement,
and now renew our earnest protest
against it. The refusal to receivo
goods at any river station except
Port Hammond is a very great injustice to tho settlements on the
south side of the river above Langley. Produce shipped from Suinas
or Chilliwhack for Yale or points
above must first be carried by
steamer down the river 32 miles to
Port Hammond, then put on board
the cars and .sent up the'river 32
miles to Chilliwhack on its way tothe
point of destination. It follows that
goods going from Chilliwhack to Yalo
must lie carried 121 miles, whereas
the two places are only 57 miles
apart! It may bo asked, Why not
send goods to Vale by steamer?
Simply because the C. P. N.
Oo. (a company heavily subsidized
by the government) will not tako
thein. The C.P.N.Co. has entered,
upparently, into the. combination,
and refuses to carry either freight
or passengers to Yale, thus com
pelling the whole of the interior
traffic to go over the railway. It
will not do for Mr. Onderdonk to
excuse himself by saying that ho
has no facilities for receiving freight
abovo Port Hammond, and that he
is not bound to put himself out for
the accommodation of tho public.
Mr. Onderdonk has killed off all
competing lines by the power which
his control of the railway gives him;
ho has become a common public
carrier and is liable to the laws governing common carriers; he is,
moreover, a carrier of tho mails;
anil we propose tliat he shall either
furnish reasonable accommodation
or suffer adverse criticism. We
shall take good euro that the authorities at Ottawa and the public generally are made awaro of the facts.
We insist that the federal government compels Mr. Ondordonk to content himself with fair charges, and
provide fair accommodation, or surrender the railway in which ho finds
the means of imposing monopoly
and extortion upon tho people and
enriching himself.
The Way Oat.
Speaking of the Mud Bay saloon
liceiue n correspondent in Wednesday's Columbian concludes by sny-
ing: "Now, Mr. Editor, what about
thst lloeiuef Well, our opinion is
that il our correspondent has cor
rectly stated the circumstances,
that license should undoubtedly be
qua-had. It is freely rumored that
whon Mr, MoDoogsll sold his shop
to the person who afterwards applied for a license, it was made a
condition of the sale that be (Mr.
McDougall) was to do all he could
towards getting a liquor license for
the place. If this rumor bo true,
Mr. McDougall had a direct interest in granting tho license, nnd
could not legally sit in tho licenso
court. Upon that ground, we believe, the license could lie cancelled.
But there is another ground of objection to the action of tho licensing court. Wc have already pointed
out the clause iu tho statutes which
declares that no such license ns
this shall bu granted unless by request of two-thirds of tho residents
of tho settlement. According to
our' correspondent there was not
ovon a majority of tho residents in
favor of tliis license, and the court,
therefore, could not grant it legally,
and the license is absolutely worthless. The mode of procedure in
order to quash it is quite simple.
At the last session of the .provincial legislature nn act wns passed
respecting the jurisdiction and procedure of county courts. Sect. .0
of this net provides that if a liquor
license has been "issued contrary to
law," any person may make complaint to thnt effect before the
judge of the district, whereupon
the judge "shall summon the person
to whom such license is issued to
appear, and shnll proceed to hear
nnd determine the matter of the
said complaint in a summary manner, and may upon such hearing,
or iu default of appearance of the
person summoned, determine and
adjudge that such license is and
stands revoked and cancelled accordingly, and thereupon such license
shall bo and' become inoperative
and of nono effect." This clause
of this new act seems to us to supply just tho machinery needed in
the case of the Mud Day license.
Hnving pointed out tho way, we
earnestly hope some person will
tako the necessary steps to put tho
legal machinery in motion. Such
un improper and illegal proceeding
ns Hint taken by Mr. McDougnll
and Mr, Shannon on Monday should
not be permitted to pass without
rebuke. They have done what they
could to establish in the settlement
tho most'pernicious nnd destructive
concern that could have been introduced. If it be truo that Mr. McDougall had a personal interest in
the granting of this license, liis conduct is nll tho more deplorable;
because iu that case lie must havo
been guilty of prostituting liis official
position for personal gain. The
laws governing the liquor traffic in
this province arc imperfect enough
all conscience, and it is all the
more needful that they should be
rigorously enforced in such instances
its the one we have mentioned. If
the people of Mud Buy and Surrey
do not tukc stops to have this
license cancelled, they must not
look for public sympathy if the
timo should como when they will
awake to the awful fact that their
sons, and tlieir brothers, and their
fathers, have fallen into disgrace
and death through the influence of
the enemy that has beon ndmitted
into their settlement. They have
the remedy in their own hands.

The Greatest City in the World.
London, England, is tho greatest
city the world ever saw. It covers
within tho 15 milos' rndius of Charing
Cross (Strand) 700 square miles. It
numbers within theso boundaries 5,-
000,000 of inlmhitunts. It comprises
ovor 2,000,000 foreigners from every
part of the globo. It contains more
Roman Catholics than Koine itself;
moro Jews than the whole of Palestine; moro Irish than Dublin; more
Scotchmen than Edinburgh; moro
Welshmen than Cardiff; inoro country-
raised persons than the counties of
Devon, Warwickshire end Durham
combined. Has u birth in it every
five minutes; lias a death in it evory
eight minutes; has seven accidents
every day in its 8,000 miles of Btreet;
has on an averago 40 miles of streets
opened and 15,000 new. houses built
overy year. In 1883 there were added
22,110 new houses to tho vast aggregate of dwellings wliich is called the
metropolis, thus forming 3(18 new
strcots anil one new square, covering a
distance of CO miles und 84 yards. Il
is difficult to form any mental picture
from these figures. Brighton, the
queen of watering-places, in 1881 had
20,370 inhabited houses, so that London iu 1683 added to itself a town
bigger than Brighton. It would require two Cambridge*, lt Oxfords, or
1 tilths to represent the addition mudo
to Loudon in a single' year. London has
40,000 annually added (by birth) to its
population; has over 1,000 ships and
10,000 sailors in its port everyday;
has as ninny beer shops nnd gin palaces as would, if placed side by side,,
stretch from Cnaring Cross to Portsmouth, a distance of 78 miles; has
38,000 drunkards annually brought
before its magistrates; hns 70 miles of
open shops every Sunday; has influence with all parts of the world represented by a yearly delivery in its postal
districts of 208,009,000 of letters.
Eight hundred and fifty trains pass
Clapham Junction every day, and the
transportation (under ground) railroad
runs 1,211 trains evory day. The
London omtiibiii company have ovor
700 'busses, whioh carry 50,000,000
passengers annually. It is more dangerous to walk tho streets of London
than to travel by railroad ur to cross
tho Atlantic from Nuw Orleans to
Liverpool, Last year 130 persons wero
killed nud 2,000 injured by vehicles in
tho streets. There are in London 15,-
000 polico, 15,000 cabmen, 15,000 parsons connected with the postoffice,
Tho cost of gas for lighting London
annually is $3,000,000, London has
400 daily ami weekly newspupers.
Last year thero woro nearly 000 tires.
The ancient and famous city of london
was first fonml.nl hy Uru to, thu Trojan,
In the yenr of tho world 2632, ao that
since the first building it is 3,000
years old. Tho drainage system, of
London is superb, and the death rate
very low.    .

A Bad Lot,--During tho past fow
days the police court has been wrestling with threo Italians charged wiih
supplying liquor to Indians and other
unlawful practices. One of them waB
fined 9200, and the other two were
dismissed. These cases brought to
light some facts which call for vigorous aotion on the part of tbo authorities.. It seems thut thero are quite a
number of Italians, Spaniards, half-
breeds, and others who have beep for
sume time operating in the swamp,
furnishing whiskey to the Indians aud
debauching tho klootchmon of that
region. The reputation uf the swamp
has always been unsavory, but these
scoundrels should be -followed liy
ovory kind of legal prosecution until
thoy are taught to respect tho authority of law if they th uot respect Uiein-
sulvos. It is for suoh persons}}that

The Fortress at PENDJEH.—The
Afghan fortress of Pendjch, which
has boen brought into suoh unexpected
prominence by the Anglo-Russian complications in Central Asia, is situated
on a broad plateau about eleven miles
south of tho northern boundary of
Afghanistan. The place forms a kind
of outwork to the local market town
of Mavrutchak or Mervrood, which
lies about eighteen miles south of it,
higher up the Murghab. This river,
flowing northwestward from theGhoor
Mountains to the' oasis of Merv (180
miles north of Herat) is the moat
direct approach to tho latter place
from the side of Russian Turkestan,
aud hence tho importance of Pendjeh,
which completely commands this approach from, its approach on the left
bank of tho stream. Like most Central Asian fortresses, both tho stronghold itself and the guns which arm it
"ahow manifest tokens of neglect, but
jt is still capable, if well garrisoned,
of offering a stout resistance to any
assailant unprovided with siege artillery. _
Woman Suffrage.—Tho Montreal
•S'/«i" uf a late dato has the following:
"The Britisli Columbia Legislature has
thrown out on its second reading a bill
.to grant women the franchise. The
arguments against it wero neither new
.or eloquent, and tho supporters uf the
bill had that fact to console themselves
.with. Women wero hot 'meant for
politics, was the staple objection, nnd
tho upholders of masculine voting
monopoly would not see that female
suffrage might nut he tho same in British Columbia as iu England or Tim-
buotoo. For objections valid in a
populous and highly civilized community do- not hold good in a sparsely
settled and rather rough provinco,
whilo it must also be confessed that in
the most advanced uf Anglo-Saxon
communities the sentiment is going in
favor of women voting. The question
is one which each self-governing state
may best decide for itself, but looking
al British Columbia, there is some
reason to suppose such au innovation
would bo attended with advantage.
Tho whites there are in a large minority; the voters* cannot bo expected to
belong to a settled or domesticated
class tu a country where miners aud
lumbermen abound, and tho addition
of tho votes of the wives and mothers
of the province, interested, as they
would be, in every projoct uf material
and moral reform, would surely give
an impetus tu good legislation. It
miglit be a mistake to insist that every
woman should vote, but it falls littlo
short of n crime to give them no voice
in affairs of the greatest moment to
their life and happiness." In what
sense does the Star regard this as n
rough province? If it is in asocial
sense, our contemporary had better beware.
When the blood is loaded with impurities, and moves sluggishly in the veins,

€. r- It. Work.
Tn moving for papers connected with
C. P. R. work in British Columbia,
Mr. Blake said iu the house of commons: "I have been informed that at
tho point which I mentioned, Maple
Ridgo (which is Maple in tho motion),
which is n short distance abovo Hammond, a serious error has been committed with reference to the location
of tho line on the bank of the Fraser;
that at that point there are lofty clay
banks on a quicksand bottom; that a
few years ago a land slide occurred at
that very point, in whioh thirty or
forty acres slid into the Fraser, changing its course; that on the opposite
side of the river a farmer who was
working in the field was caught hy the
water, hurled against a tree and killed.
Slides aro still occuring at this point,
and in the neighborhood where the
curvatures are short and sharp, and it
has been found necessary to keep
Chinamen employed to avoid accidents
and loss of life. The statement is
given to me with reference to that locality, and it is the justification which I
have for asking tho house to adopt
this motion. Then I have received
statements ns to the condition of the
work on tho government sections of
the Canadian Pacitio Railway in British Columbia, and as to the extent of
work remaining to be done for the
completion of the contract, which is
now, according to the date, very soon
due, and whieh seems to call for at
tention. The statement made is that
the works are in a condition whioh
render It impossible tbat they can bo
.so oompleted as to satisfy the spirit ur exigency of the contract with tho Canadian Paoifio Railway Company. What
I am anxious to avoid is that the work
should - bo taken off tho hands
of the contractor in such a cun
dition that it will bo accepted by tho
Canadian Pacitio Railway Company
without any reclamations upon the
government of tho country fur
further expenditure tu put it in
proper condition. I think it
pdrtant that we should understand
that such communication is being had
between tho government and the coin
puny with reforenoe to this work that
the condition whioh the government
accepts as satisfactory is going to bo
accepted as satisfactory by tlio government nn well, bo that when tho government take's the work off tho contractor's hands the railway company shall
tako it Off the hands of the government, without making such -Umiaiuls
as nro being made iu another section,
and much greater demands will bo made
unless proper care is used. It Ib said
that a very great amount of reduction
has taken placo in tho staff of govern
ment engineers on that section, duo,
as I understand, to the fact that thu
work is so nearly complete that thoro

The Fire Engine.
Editor Colombian.—The fire committee reported in favor of placing the
steam fire engine on Agnes street and
the report was adopted by tbe council at
the last meeting. Some of the citizens
object to this, but the weight of argument seems to be greatly with the report. -One prominent citizen says the
strongest reason against it is tbat in taking tne engine down hill it might run
away and into the river. It seems to me
that if no stronger reason pun be given
there should be no opposition. The experience of the last nre shows that a
very large number of men nnd a great
deal of time are required to take the
steamer uphill, while a few could take
it down iu a short time. From Agnes
st. the steam engine could command,
practically, the whole town.   The rate-
fiayera and property-owners above Co-
umbia Bt. aro entitled to as much consideration as those on it and below it.
The possession of a steam fire engine
ought to give lower insurance rates, even
If ttie engine should be placed on Ague?

Those Settlers,
Editor Columbian.—Mr, .loss, in reply to my letter, explained his erroneous
report merely by personalities, altogether
foreign to the subject. The readers of
your widely circulated paper are too intelligent to be satisfied with such an explanation. Mr. Robs, it is evident, is
unable to prove the statement in my letter to bo wrong. If, however, the report
is accepted without investigation, so
much the worse for the government. I
'would be happy if the matter was investigated. It is not the writer whom, by
tho way, Mr, Ross is pleased to call a
lunatic, who is the only one interested
in the subject. There are others interested who are not lunatics. Would Mr.
Rosb be good enough to tell us where,
when and by whom the Bottlers on the

in township 9 will-he gratified if tliis information is given. •

In conclusion, I will stato for the benefit of the public and your correspondent
that at ordinary high water a vessel
drawing ten feet of water can come up
to .the bridge on the Nicomekl fiver at
crossing of Semiahmoo road, and that
there are different places where a vessel
of that draft can lay with perfect safety
at any stage of the tide., The only difficulty at present is tbe want of buoys so
as to enable strange vessels to make the
harbor. Vessels drawing five feet of
water can ascend the Nicomekl for some
seven miles with ease and safety, and
vessels of that draft ought, to be sufficiently good sea boats to navigate the
gulf of Georgia.     W. C. McDougall. ■

A Mental Illusion.
Editor Columbian. — I was highly
amused on looking over the last issue of
the Columbian to see in a communication
from Semiahmoo Bay the statement that
that point would eventually become the
shipping port for the settlements of
Langley, Clover Valley and Mud llay.
The writer of that communication may
be able sometimes to predict future
events with considerable certainty, but
he took dsspeate chances and must have
considerable faith lu luck to help him
through, when he gave utterance or form
to this most extraordinary prediction.
But this Is not all; not content with
launching sueh a risky and speculative
prophesy, he supplements it by an attack
on the Nicomekl river and Mud Bay,
and with the most complacent feelings,
doubt lent induced by his supreme confidence in his own talents for writing general er descriptive geography, he proceeds most soberly to mi distort on paper
the natural features of those localities*
thut dame nature herself, were she to
review this description, would not recognize tlm pretty bay and lovely river
wliich is admired by everyone, except,
perhaps, your correspondent,
Now, being charitably inclined, ,1 feel
that I must put your correspondent on

New Yokk, Marcli 14.—Statistics of
immigration at Castle Garden show a
falling off of more tban 35 per cent,
from January lst, compared with the
Bsme period last year. The decline Ib
especially marked in German immigration. The steamship Servia brought
here Wednesday 264 immigrants, one
year ago at the same date she brought
4,010. There is a alight increase in
English immigration. Immigration is
lighter now than it has been before at
the same date since Castle Garden waa

Hartford, Conn., March 14,—The

No property qualification is required.
The passage of tho bill was more than

taxpaying women and mothers of cchool
children to vote on school matters.

High Class Orpins.
From the Toronto Globe,
Perhaps tbe most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ antl Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, wliich cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had heen cramped for room in the Main
Building, wliere it is impossible to judge
the ments of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed hy the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds Tor their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success whicli they havo achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, ^ its day of small
things. It bad its origin iu Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, the stock being
at tliat time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary aud treasurer; Qeorge Piggott, the
manager of the tnanufacturing department; and W. S. Russell, superintendent'of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire aa a partner. Piano-
making was' added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
{ositiou among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out alrout 200 organs and 50
Eianos per month. These are produced
y 250 hands, who receive in wages
about 815,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and.
they have branches in Loudon and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
Tbe instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship. Au upright piano
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. Tlie former
bi Intended for standing against the aide
wall of a room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. Tho
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, ana is
suited for occupying a prominent position In drawing or music room, Tliese
two instruments are 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 appearance they ore equal to the best
American pianos.
The orgsns made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in alt styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to$l ,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is ut
Sresent at the Dominion Exhibition,
lontreal, but is expected here at the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk'B water motor, which has
been placed iu position to await the
arrival of the big instrument The organs 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 aud skilful workmanship.
Tlie case which secured for the Company
a prise at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia Is still muoh admired, and
is largely manufactured. Casea for parlor organs aro chaste iu design and artistic in execution. Tho musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; white visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the oases.
[T. R. Pearson ft Co., New Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organs
in British Columbia. Persons proposing
to purchase should not fail to communicate with them. Sample organs on view.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
But it was not so sad as it appears.
She lud a number of people whom aha
loved woll enough to be delighted.by
their* prosperities and overcast by
their troubles. She had all the advantages of a fleet ion without being so
closely knit to any as to have its drawbacks too. But this easy position
changed when she became, su to speak,
tho mothor of Edward Vornon. It
was not the doing of Providence, it
was her own doing. She had taken it
upon herself, and for years past she
had said to herself that the boy hud
made her know,, as she had never
known bofore, what happiness was.
But now hero was, swinging round
slowly, revealing itself to her in
glimpses, tho reverse uf the medal,
tho other side of the picture. Was lie
deceiving hor? Sho had taken up his
defenso boldly, not caring what shu
said; but bIio had believed what she
heard all tho same, and had known it
to be truo. Was this why he had not
■ cared to see hor, to bid her goodnight, bofore ho camo uut to have that
meoting with Hester—like a shop-girl
and shop-boy, she said to herself, lior
lip quivering with passion, vexation,
dorision, all bound together by tlio
pain produced by Ilium—ut tlie gato ?
The commonplace character of tile
meeting, the look of petty intrigue in
it, humbled her prido in hor boy. If
they had met at Ellen's dance, or in
any legitimate way, she thought it
would not have mortified her so much;
but like a lady's maid and a footman,
liko Jane tho scullery-girl and her
young man! Sho laughed to herself
at the thought, but the laugh was
more painful than tears.
By aud by, however, Catherine
camo to take a little comfort out of
the fact that Edward had uut como tu
bid her good-night. • Nut considering
for a moment that any incident of all
this might be accidental, though everything was su, ahe concluded that \m
heart had failed him, that he had felt
himsolf incapable of tho treachery of
kissing her cheek in the usual tender
way, when about to'do u thing which
ho know wuuld bo su displeasing to hor.
Whon this occurred to Cathorino tho
whole aspect uf the matter changed;
hor features relaxed, her color came
back. This, no duubt, was How it had
beon. The girl had met him at Ellen's folly—how truly a folly had never
been proved till now—and sho was
pretty aud clever. Catherino was too
' proud to deny her natural advantages;
and men wore foola, as was well known
—the best of them, tho wisest of
them—whore women were concerned.
She had led him into sums engagement,
somo light wager, perhaps, some defiance, of what he would venture to do.
And Edward had been silly onough to
bo led nway. She did not want him
to bo too wise. If ho was silly, it was
no more than everybody elso had been
before him. But he, dear boy, true
boy, having involved himself in a
piece of fully, had shuwn that highor
respect tu her that he wuuld rather let
her suppose ho hud forgotten and neglected her than to come to heV with
tho usual greeting when liu know he
was doing something which would
seem treachery to Catherine. Thus
she, who fm- ttio first moment had
known no wish but that of pushing
homeward and hiding her sudden
downfall within her own houao, where
nobody could intrude upon her, had
sO triumphantly explained all that
trouble away boforo she got homo that
sho entered the Grange radiant, with
no sense uf having a downfall to hido.
Tho casuistry of love is more skillful
than nny device of philosophy. Sho
explained everything to herself. Sho
wondered that she had not read it in
his faco all the evoning. She folt that
it had been thero, if sho had only had
eyes to see. A foolish talk carried a
trifle too far, a bold girl—not bad, no,
not bad, that was uot necessary, and
Catherine would be just—pleased to
got a little triumph when the could
over the uther side, and u foolish
promise, uot intended, had drawn him,
perhaps ugainst his will. By this
subtile demonstration, whicli no faculty less keen than that of love could
have made, Catherine proved, to her
full sntisfact ion, tho fundamental
truth in him which uo littlo trumpery
deceit (uf a kind su innocent as this!)
cuuld undermine. All this lino fabric
was raised un tho must insignificant
foundation of fact. But what did
that matter? it was enough. And if
Catherine had been told that Edward's
forget fulness of the good-night had
boen accidental, and that uu incident
of the night had buen planned beforehand, she would have simply and flatly
denied tho possibility. Sho know better; and ahe preferred tho matter us
it stood.
Tho dinner-party was an insignificant affair to her aftor this. She did
full justice to it, and to Roland Ashton, the chief guest, tho man whom
she delighted to honor, and fur whoso
pleasure and profit the bust peoplo iu
llod borough were called together. He
was already known to many of them,
and it was Catherine's pleasure to
mako her'relationship and interest in
tho young visitor clear. But her mind
was eager to get through the commonplace courtesies of tho evoning, to
come tu tho mumont when Edwnrd
and alio should moot alone. She could
not pass her discovery uver without
note. Sho would (ell him what sho
had heard, and what she hud divined.
Sho would givo him tho tender warning which such an affection ns hors
had iv right to oiler. If it was moro
than a passing flirtation (which she
-did not believe), to beg him to reconsider it; if his heart should be touched
(which Heaven forbid! but the thought
made her smile, it wns su profoundly
unlikely), to entreat him to reflect,
nnd see how little satisfaction cuuld
come to him from such intercourse.
J3he went over and over again tho
interview that was to come—so often,
indeed, that she exhausted it, and
when tho moment did come, did not
romember half of what sho intended
Jo say. It came, indeed, in a way entirely contrary, to. what ahe had im-
fined. After ttie party had dispersed
Iwerd took Roland into his room to
smoke with him—wliich alio ought to
Imve recollected he wub in the habit of
doing—and then, what was moro disappointing still', wont out with him to
accompany him pltrt of the way. Sho
Wat going down stairs to Edward's
room, tbat sho might got those explanation! off her mind without a mo-
ment's delay, und was taken'entirely
by surprise when she hoard the dour
clou, and two voices continuing outside.
"Ham Mr. Edward gone out V shu
asked, with a trembling shu cuuld
scarcely control, of the butlor, when
he oame up to put out tho lights.
"I was to say, ma'am, as he'd ho
baok in half an hour," said the man.
Catherine sent her maid to bed, und
kept her particular lamp burning on
her little table, waiting thero in tho
dimness of the large, deserted room,
hearing every crackle and rustle of the
night. It seOmed to her far moro than
hnlf an hour before sho heard Edward's
key in the door; but sho was resolved
not to bo balked now. She had no
idea, poor lady, that he thought her
suspicious, inquisitive, and watchful,
making domiciliary visits in order to
find him out in something, which waB
very far from Catherine's disposition.
Sho wont duwn accordingly, to lose no
time, aud met him in the hall. He
was astonished to see her, as was natural enough; and sho had nn uneasy
tremor upon her, which was natural
too, but which looked like cold. He
was full of apologies for having kopt
hor up, "If I had known you would
have waited for mo, Aunt Catherine—"
"You did not say goud-night to mo
last night, Edward. I did not liko
that tu happen two nights running. I
will go into your room, not to hurry
you up-stairs,"
"I can't think how that happened,"
ho said, following her into tho cozy
ruum, with its red curtains and cheerful firo, and all the conveniences and
prettinossos sho had accumulated for
him there, "I had boen thinking
hard, and my mind was full of balance-
sheets and figures. I entirely forgot
1 had uut booh you."
She turned round upun him, taking
Iuh arm 'between her hands, and looking with a tender smile into his face.
"No, my dear boy, I know,better
than that. You had a reason—-which
shows mo how well I liavo divined you,
and how truo yuu ure, Edward. I hnvo
beon told whoro yuu went to last night."
This startled him greatly, for tho
moment. Ho looked at hor with an
alarmed expression; but seeing no
anger iu her face, said quickly,
"That was all quite accidental, Aunt
Catherino. You don't think I went
thero on purpose, do you?" without
shrinking at all from her eyes,
"Yes, Edward, I thought yuu did.
Perhaps I was wrong. I thought
there might have been some silly bargain—somo promise made without
thought; and that you folt a littlo
treacherous—that is a harsh word—
deceitful—that is worse—to mo, and
would not come back and kiss mo
when you might bo supposed to bn
going against me. 1 forgave you entirely, Edward, fur thnt goud thought."
He was a littlo touched in spito of
himself.
"Yon aro very good, Aunt Catherine, far botter to me than I deserve;
but as a matter of fact, it waB all
purely accidental. I had been very
busy, and folt feverish and sleepless.
I went out to have a turn in tho moonlight; chanco tuok me that way; thoro
was a light iu Mrs. John's window;
they looked out in grout surprise, and
asked mo tu come in. I could scurcoly
satisfy hur," he said, with un ombar-
rnssed littlo laugh, "that you wero not
ill, and had hot sent for her to nurse
you. It was as good as a play," ho
went on, still laughing, followed in
ovory word by her anxious oyes, "to
see poor Mrs. John's struggle betwoen
politeness and sleep. Sho was very
sleepy, pour little wunian, but dreadfully polito. Yuu may suppose I was
surprised enough to find myself there."
"Yes," sho said, still holding hi in,
still reading hiB faco with her anxious
eye,., but fooling the ground cut from
under her foet. Shu was a littlo
breathless with anxiety and excitement. "I wonder—that you did nut
tell me of it—this morning;"
"Dear Aunt Catherine," he said,
"pardon me, but you have a littlo
prejudice, yuu know, against those
poople. Aud it was au entirely accidental. You might lmvo thought, had
1 told you, that it had boon dune on
purpose."
"Did I over duubt what you said lo
mo, Edward?"
"Nu," ho said, taking her bunds in
his tenderly, as she thought; and, indeed, the action was not without real
tenderness, fur his heart was touched.
"No," ho said, smiting, "but yot you
would have liad a littlo doubt—a littlo
wonder whether it was really so."
"And it was really so?" sho Baid
luok ing into his face; "really—really-
no littlo shadow of a wish for—a little
provocation, a little talk, a little fun,
if you like, Edward) Oh, nu, I have
no prejudice. I should know it was
quito natural. And you mean that
there wus nothing ut nil, nothing uf
this- a mere accident, nothing mure?"
He kissed her chock, and laughed
at hur iu a filial wuy.
"Didn't I toll yuu, Aunt Catherine?
You bolieve me—oh, yes; but thon you
ask mo if really—really—I am saying
what is true? Really—really—as ofton
ns yuu like; it waa accident, and nothing more."
This was how all the eloquent things
which Catherino had prepared tu say
wore never aaid. She went up tu bed,
pleased and happy, yet not so pleased
us if he had confessed her version of
the story to be the true one. Sho did
not duubt his word—oh, no, nu—but
yet—the other version looked more
true to naluro. Sue could have under-
stuod it bettor that way.

After theae events there seemed a
lull, in which nothing more seemed to
happen. Though time is so Bliort, and
our modern pace of living, wc Hatter
ourselves, su much muro rapid than of
old,-how fow, after all, are the periods
in which things happen, und with what
long stretches of vacant days between I
Hester could hardly explain to herself
how it was that Edward Vernon's sudden evening visit, so unexpected, so
unprecedented, had mado an entire
revolution in her lifo. .There had
been no mutual confessions of love,
no proposal, uo acceptance, suoh as aro
supposed tu bo necessary. There was
nothing to confide to her mother, hud
it been possible to tuke any one into
that strait union of two suddenly bo-
come one. The effect bewildered her
entirely, and she could nut tell how
it hnd' boen produced; but yet
it was ho. They had been un the
eve of this, sito folt, for years, and
tho first time that they met in a moment of complete freedom their souls
flowed together, flowed iutu une. Perhaps he had not meant it whon ho
camo. The dim parlor, and tlm sleepy
mother, trying hard tu bo polite, quite
unconscious how unnecessary her presence was*, the young man, with his
enger eyea, scarcely keeping himself in
—came before ,her like a curious pic-
turo a hundred times a day; and then
the sudden sweep of the torrent after
it, the almost involuntary, impetuous,
unalterable junction of theso two
hearts and lives. But tho shock even
of happiness when it comes su suddenly
is great; and Hester was not sure oven
that sho was happy. He soemod to
have led hur to tho edgo of some labyrinth, without freedom to leave it, or
to advance into its mysteries. Thore
wns a clow, indeed, but it was lying in
loose coils at hor feot, and whu cau
toll if over it could bn sufficiently
sti'aigtened, sufficiently tightened, to
give any real guidanco? There was nu
habit of meeting in their Uvea, no way
of eooing each other, even, without attracting suspicion.
