Goal Harbor Extension.
The following official correspondent*
relating,to the railway extension from
Port Moody to Coal Harbor was laid
before the provincial legislature ou
Monday. It is of sufficient interest to
justify its publication in extenso:
tetter From Smithe to Van If erne.
Dear Sib.—You .are ^qn^thgt the
Dominion government relinquish aH'claim
to that portion of the railway reserve in
this province lying to the west of Port
Moody; and you will doubtless recollect
that when 1 saw you in Montreal, you
exacted a promise from me that the provincial government would refrain from
dealing with these lands until your arrival here, which was to have beeu within a month from tlmt date. As more
than a month has elapsed, and I nm led
to understand the time of your coining is
still uncertain, I now write for the purpose of impressing upon your mind the
great inconvenience of keeping these
lauds longer locked up. I have now,
therefore, to request that you will hasten
your visit or hold me released froin my
promise to await your coining. I beg
you will, on receipt of this, wire me'what
you purpose doing in the matter. Yours
faithfulfy, Wm. Siwrrni:.

Montreal, June 14th.
Letter from Van Home, to Smith*.,
Dear Sir.—I am again unexpectedly
prevented from starting for British Columbia; and as the date of my leaving is
uncertain, I write to say that this company will undertake to make its Paoifio
terminus on Coal Harbor and English
Bay, if the reserved lands referred to in
your letter of May __vd as haviug been
relinquished by the Dominion government may be secured to this company,
aud if we are nble to make reasonable
arrangements with private holders of
lands in that vicinity. From communications already received, I have no doubt
that tho necessary arrangements may be
made witli the private holders, ami if
your reply as to tho reserved lands is
favorable wo will commence negotiations
^jritlt thein at onoa. I shall be glad if
you will wire ine with regard to these
reserved Innds as soon as possible. Yours
truly, W. C. Van Hornf..
Montreal, June 14th.
Telegram from Smithe lo   r«« Horne,
Your letter received.   Proposition too
vague aud sweeping.    Define land required from government.   Your presence
here essential to successful negotiations.
Wm. Smithe.
Victoria, Juno 25th.
After a number of unimportant telegrams relating fo the time, of Van Home's
visit, Comes the following teller from Van
Home to Smithe:     ,   .
Sir.-The directors of this company
have had under careful consideration tlie
question of the location of the Pacific terminus of the Canadian Pacitio Kailway,
and they have authorized me to communicate to you their views, as follows:
Inasmuch as a comprehensive plan for a
terminus, providing reasonably tor the
future as well as for the present, will involve a large immediate outlay of money,
and aa the present available resources of
the company are required for the completion of their undertaking with tbe
government, they do not see their way
clear to the extension of tlieir line of railway beyond'Port Moody, and the provision of the necessary docks aud other
facilities at a new point, unless they cau
acquire sufficient property so situated us
to*he made immediately saleablo for a
sufficient amount to recoup the outlay
mentioned. Thoy feel that as the lauds
west of Port Moody, recently relinquished by the Dominion government, were
originally intended and sot apart to aid
in tho construction of the Canadian Pacific Railway to English Bay, and as the
lands would have been so applied had
the Dominion government lixcd upon
English Bay instead of I'ort Mooily as
the western terminus, all of theso lauds
ahould in fairness be granted to the company in the event of their taking up the
work where the Dominion government
haa left it and continuing the line to
English Bay. But our directors wish to
meet your government in a liberal spirit,
and to ask for no more than they believe
to be necesiay to cover their outlay within the near future in making their ter-
. minus all that it should be in tlie interest
■ of the country. Owing to the groat depth
- of water along the shores of Burrard Inlet, and the Impracticability of the use
of timber in permanent piers and docks,
.the dooks must necessarily be made along
-shore, and a water frontage of vory
■considerable extent will be required.
The greater part of the available water
frontage ia in the hands of private parties, and It is doubted if any material
unount can bo obtained at anything like
'.reasonable price. On the enclosed plan
iu will find indicated in green tint so
' \ ch of the lands belonging to your gov-
■ament aa our directors deem necessary
their purposes.   It may he said that
:e lands ao indicated are the most immediately available; 'but tt should be remembered that it is tho company alone
hat has to meet an immediate outlay.
The directors, white believing tr at in
the event of an extension of their lino
the terminal oity will ho built ou the
land fronting on English Bay, attach
great importance to the •'Granville" tract,
, where must be located their lirst docks,
their shopp, terminal yards, etc.; and,
while doming in every way to meet the
vtewa of your government, thoy
art unable to Bee how they can
carry out anything like an adequate plan
without the wholo of this particular tract
—In fact they deem it essential, I may
uy, for your information, that the shops
and yards of the company in Winnipeg
occupy about 240 acres, and moro ground
at that point has already become necessary. In consideration of the lands, as
indicated on the plan enclosed herewith,
the company pro;" ies to extend tho main
lino of the OniiL.iaii Pacific Kailway to
Coal Harbor and English Bay by the timo
the through Hue is ready for operation, j

and to establish tbe terminus of the railway in tlio immediate vicinity of Coal
Harbor and English Bay, and commence
the construction of tho necessary workshops and other works in time to provide
tlio necessary facilities for the opening of
traffic on the through line, that Is to say
by the early summer of 188(1. The company further proposes to construct a
branch, from some convenient point on
the umiu lino, to the town of Now Westminster during the year 1880; on "Hie condition that the town of New Westminster
shall contribute seventy-five thousnnd
dollars in cash in aid thereof, aud furnish
tbo necessary right of way and depot
grounds. It will be necessary tliat the
lands be grandted to trustees, to be appointed by the company, in order that
they may we free from nny Hen attaching
to the Canadian Paoifio Kailway. I
have, kc., W. C. Van Horne.
Montreal, Sept. 9th,
Letter from Van Home to Smithe,
" ,..J>*Aii Sir.—I am told thai'a strong
pressure is being brought to boar to secure the extension of the timber limits
on tbo government property In tho vicinity of Coal Harbor ond English Buy for a
long term of years, nnd I am also led to
believe that it is the object of the parties
in securing such an extension to acquire
rights that will have to bo bought out;
and I trust that this may bo guarded
against. In view of the probable rapid
growth of tho town when finally located
and put upon tho market, and Uncertainty that manufacturing concerns of
more or loss importance will spring up
all about it, and of the importance of being able to secure tho location of such
concerns where thoy will contribute best
to the growth of the town, although they
may not bo directly upon tho townsite,
it is very important that as much as
possiblo of tite property be immediatly
available for sale or lease. Believo me,
etc., Vf. C. Van Horne.
Montreal, Sept. 23rd.
Telegram from Smithe to Van Home,
Proposition received. Government
adhere to terms arranged with you, and
cannot exceed them. Particulars by
mail. Wm. Smithe.
Victoria, Sept 25th.
Telegram from  Van I/orne.lo Smithe,
You misunderstood me if you supposed
I had assented to your last proposition at
Victoria. I stated at time that I feared
Granville reservation would bo fatal,, but
promised make proposition coming as
near possiblo meeting your view.
W, C. Van* Horne.
Montreal; Sept 2(lth.
Telegram from Smithe lo  Van Home,
Government cannot increase area of
grant, but are willing concede portion at
Granville provided you relinquish your
share in Hustings. Delay embarrassing.
Immediate conclusion essential.
Wm. Smithe.
Victorin, Sopt. 20th.
Telegram from   Van Horne, to Smithe.
Will recommend your proposed inodi-
licitioii to board directors, nnd have no
doubt tbey will assent, but cannot give
their definite answer until meeting next
Tuesday. VV, C. Van Hohnk.
Montreal, Oct. lst. -.<y
Telegram from Smithe to Van Horne.
With that part of your proposition
whieh relates to New Westminster we
havo nothing to do, but would strongly
recommend you to immediately open negotiations with mayor and council of that
city. "        Wm. Smithe.
Victoria, Oct. 0th.
Letter^ from Smithe to Van Horne.
Sn:.—Referring to your letter, dated
Oth and posted ob the 10th ultimo, in
which you nsk for. a tract of laud on Coal
Harbor and Knglish Bay, embracing an
aggregate of about 11,000 acres, and including tin* whole nf Granville townsite
and tho nortii half of Hastings, in consideration of which you say tlio company
"proposes to extend tho main line of the
Canadian Pacific Railway to Coal Harbor and English Bay by the time the
through line is ready for operation, and
to establish the terminus of the railway
iu the immediate vicinity of Coal Harbor
and English Bay, aud commence the construction of the necessary workshops aud
other works in time to provide the necessary facilities for the opening of traffic
on the through line by tho cany summer
of 1880," 1 havo the honor to inform
you tbat the government fully appreciate
the advantage of having the main line of
railway extended to Coal Harbor and
Knglish Bay, and arc disposed to render
the company such aid as a fair consideration of the interests of the province will
justify, iu order to make the Canada Pacific Kuilway, upon wliich so, much of tho
future welfare of tho country depends, a
eoinplete success. They do not, however,
consider that they cau grant so large an
area of land for terminal purposes as you
desire, nor do they feel that they can
add to the area verbally discussed at tho
time of your visit to Victoria. With a
view, however, to facilitate au immediate
arrangement, tho government would bo
willing to give the land indicated iu rod
tint ou the enclosed plan, less a sufficient
area for government others, schools, etc.,
to be selected to the extent: of Bay, live
acres, half in Granville and half ou tho
south side of False Creek, within half a
mile of the shore. The small Indian reserve on False Creek, which you include
in your plan, is held In. trust by the Dominion government, to whom you must
apply if yon desire to obtain it. The
government reserve on the poiut of the
peninsula, near tlie entrance to the harbor, is also in the hamls of the Dominion
t;overument. You will observe that the
and now proposed to bo given to your
company includes all the government
land at Grauvil.c, except, as I havo
already said, a small area for olliccs, etc.
On tho other hand, the whole of Hastings,
a portion of which it « as proposed to
grant to your company, is retained. Although tlie area at Hastingsjiow retained
exceeds that proposed to lie given in exchange at Granville, the value of the two
parcels may be taken as vory nearly
equal. In order tliat the vexed question
of the Pacific terminus mny be finally
settled and public confidence established,
I have to request that immediate steps
may be taken for making the decision of
the company authoritatively known, and
that tbo boundaries of the land hereby
granted be properly defined upon the
ground. With this in view, thosurvey
of the line should be undertaken nt once
and a definite time appointed for the
commencement of constru.tion and of
neceiiary terminal buildings. The grant
of land will of courso be conditional upon
the terms of the agreement being carried
out, and time will bo considered oh of
the essence of the contract. It was explained to you when you were here that
tbe government had agreed to extend the
leaso of the Hastings Sawmill Company
for a poriod of five years, ou condition of
their giving up immediately a strip along
tbe shore linn of False Creek und English
Bay, extending l.nck n mile and embracing an nidi of sonic 1,00V) acres, The
government have sinco agreed to grant n

The Final Act.
It must occur to every person acquainted with tlie facts that the
declaration of tho supreme court of
Canada in the Canada Temperance
Act is in keeping with the wholo
history of that most unfortunate
act. From beginning to end it has
been a delusion and a snare. It
had its origin 'in party spite, and
has ended in party embarrassment.
Not only has it accomplished no
good purpose whatever, but it has
done a positive injury to the country, Tlie Canada Temperance Aot
is possessed of many merits as an
act, and for tliis reason we regret
that it did not become law. We
are afraid it may be a long time before so good a temperance act mny
be looked for from our own legislature. Tlie rights of our province
must be guarded, however. If these
rights were surrendered in respect
to the license laws, they might be
surrendered in respect to all laws,
and this province would come to be
governed in all respects by the federal acts The temperance sentiment of British Columbia is undoubtedly growing, and we earnestly
hope the legislature will nt least
keep up witli* the demands of public
opinion. The laws of British Columbia are thirty years behind tliose
of any other province of the Dominion as far as tbey relate to the
regulation of the liquor traffic.
This ought uot to be, and we should
be glad to see a bill somewhat
similar to the Canada Temperance
Act adopted at tlie present session
of the legislature.
Toal Harbor Extension.
We publish to-day the full text
(omitting a few unimportant telegrams) of the official correspondence
relating to the C. P. K. extension
from Port- Moody to Coal Harbor.
From tin.-; correspondence it will be
seen that an agreement lias been
entered into aud sinned by which
the railway syndicate pledges itself
io extend the main line of the Canadian Pacific Kailway to Coal Harbor and English Bay by the time
the through road is ready for traffic.
The syndicate also binds itself to
establish the terminus in the immediate vicinity of English Bay and
Coal Harbor, and to have the necessary terminal works constructed
early in 18£fi. It is stated by Btr.
Van Horne that arrangements have
been made with the Dominion government to have tbe engine-house
and other terminal buildings erected
at Coal Harbor instead of Port
Moody, as wns at first contemplated.
This official correspondence sets at
rest absolutely all doubts which
might have lingered in any minds
inspecting the ultimate terminus of
the C. P. R, It will have the effect
of confirming public confidence and
stimulating enterprise. We see
every prospect of a very rapid development about Coal Harbor and
English Bay during tlie present season, and the money expended in
railway works and private schemes
is certain to be large. The correspondence also shows how unfounded
were tlie insinuations and charges
made by certain persons and their
organ in tliis city respecting the
proposed branch line. The agreement is not contingent upon the
adoption of any particular route, and
does not affect the branch road to
this city, and the insinuations of
Senator Mclnues nt the railway
meeting, and tho open charges of
the Guardian, aro shown to be
equally groundless. It will be seen
also that the proposal to extend the
' railway came from tho syndicate
and not from the government. The
syndicate .evidently oxpected to receive the whole of the public lauds
contained in the railway belt, but
out of over 20,000 acres the government yielded only about 6,000. The
course pursued by the provincial
government in this matter seems to
us to have been cleorly iu the interest of the province—securing the
greatest good to the greatest number.
The Speech.
It cannot lie said that there is
nothing in tho speech with which
his honor opened tho legislature ou
Monday. It has a great- deal in it,
and contains as many words, perhaps, as any speech from the throne
over delivered in Canada. It would
not be true to say, even, that this
speech contains nothing but words,
It contains many things of very
- great interest to the country. In
the first place tlie house is congratu
lated upon the prosperity of the
country, and upon tlie hopeful prospect which presents itself. In certain sections of the province thero
have been dull times experienced,
especially during the latter part of
tho season; but this province lias
suffered less from business depression and enjoyed a more solid prosperity thau any'other province in
the Dominion. Tlie completion of
the C. P. B., which is noticed in
the speech, is an event vory near at
hand, and ono wliich cannot be
viewed with indifference. For
years we have been waiting with
most eager expectation for the completion of this road, and there
seems to be every reason for believing that it will bo an accomplished
fact before the close of 1S85. As a
result of the settlement bill work
on the island railway is also being
carried on with vigor. The. first
section has been for some time under contract, and tenders for another 20 miles are now asked for. Tho
island railway 'scheme is the only
part of tho settlement bill against
which any objection can be taken.
In some respects it is unfortunate
that so large an area of lands supposed to be valuable in coal should
come under the control of one firm-
On the other baud, it appeared
quite evident that nothing less than
tins railway would satisfy the people of Victoria, and tlie bargain
made for its construction by the
present government is confessedly a
great deal better for the province
than that proposed by the leaders
of the present opposition. The reference made in the speech to the
dry dock is most satisfactory. A
contract for its completion has been
let by the federal government, and
work is already proceeding. Attention is called to the inadequacy
of the dock to accommodate large
vessels, and the government lias
suggested that the specifications
sbould be altered so as to make it
large enough for any ship. Tlie
suggestion is important, and in the
interest of the country, but we
doubt very much if it will be adopted. After touching upon the eastern boundary and Indian affairs,
tlie speech conies to the never-
sutticiently-to-be-deplored condition
of the Chinese question. It is hinted that the restriction acts passed
last session and disallowed at Ottawa "may be re-enacted. We hope
they will, and that our representatives in the federal parliament will
unite clamorously for the restriction
of this great, crushing evil. A
large paragraph of the speech is devoted to the Coal Harbor extension,
and the negotiations which took
place between the government aud
syndicate respecting that matter.
On the first page we publish the
official correspondence between
Hon. Mr. Smithe and Mr. Van
Horne, from which our readers will
learn the full history of this transaction. Application has been made
for an adjustment of the boundary
between Britisli Columbia and Alaska. It is claimed that a valuable
strip of laud, embracing millions of
acres, and now claimed by tho United States,, belongs by right to this
province, As there are some rich
mineral lands in that region, it may
come to be of great value to British
Columbia. The speech makes reference also to the development of the
mineral lauds iu the Kootenay district, the exploration of Queen Charlotte Islands, the increased production of coal and lumber, and contains the most gratifiying announcement that the revenue for the past
year has been in excess of the estimates, and shows a very healthy increase. For some years the financial affairs of this province havo presented anything but a hopeful aspect, and it is certainly matter for
congratulation that there has beeu
a change for the better. This
change is undoubtedly due iu the
first place to the general prosperity
and development which has been
experienced during the past three
years. The resources of the country
have been made revenue producing,
and the population has been materially increased, Tt is due partly alao
to the policy of. the government in
relieving the country of unnecessary
burdens such as the dry-dock nnd
readjusting the assessment. While
cordially approving the government's general policy ab ono whicli
looks to the prosperity and growth
of the province, we do not pretend
for a moment that tlie circumstances
under wliich the preseut government
lias held otlice have not been most
favorable for financial success. To
these circumstances belongs mainly
the crodit of the gratifying balance
sheet indicated by tbo speech, but
the government is likewise entitled
to credit for its management of the
provincial finances. Thero are very
few mensures of importance foreshadowed in the speech. It is unfortunately tho custom now a-days
in Canada for a government not to
show its hand iu the speech' from
the throne.    In similar documents
emanating from the federal government it is usual to omit all notice
of some of the most important measures, and to mention a number of
measures which are never laid before the bouse. Tlie custom seems
to us objectionable, and wc are sorry
it should be followed by the'government of British Columbia. Tliere
is a good deal of work before the
house for this session, and it is to
be hoped party and personal issues
mny not be allowed to interfere with
measures looking to the general welfare of the country.

Presentation, —The people of New
Weatminator aro warm friends of Cnpt.
Cyrus Orr, master of thu steamer Idaho, The Canadian company operating
botween Victoria and Frasor rivor
show ill-feeling towards Now Westminster, They have exhibited this
for a month past by assuming that the
river was frozen bo as to prevent its
navigation, nnd hnvo made no effort to
establish the truth or falsity of their
assumption. On the contrary they
have deliberately run their boats past
tho river into Burrard Inlet and up to
Port Moody, putting tho New Westminster people to needless expense
and annoyance. The people have protested, the papers have denounced,
but all to no purposo. Tho Idaho
runs to New Westminster from the
Sound. ' She makes weekly trips, and
hns so far made every one of them
without fail. She has found ice in the
rivor, but not enough to seriously impede navigation. Tiie contrast between hur regular coming, with small
inducement at that, and the neglect of
the mail steamers of the Canadian
company, wus startling, and uot at all
complimentary to the latter. The
people felt that something should be
said and done about it to express thoir
feelings, Accordingly they went to
work to give Capt. Orr a tangible expression of their appreciation. A
handsome silver water pitcher and silver trny were bought, the legend following being engraved upon the pitcher: * * * This was formally presented by the Mayor in the presence
of the counoil and a large number of
citizens. An address of the must
complimentary character accompanied
tho articles, to which a modest, proper
reply was made by Cnpt. Orr. The
bout and ita captain were heartily
cheered ns they loft tho city.— Seattle
Post, The above item is correct except in one or two particulars. Wu
do not think the C. P: N. Oo. hits any'
ill-feeling towards this city. It was
moro convenient for its steamers to go
to Burrard Inlot than to this city
while the river was closed nt Port
Hammond, and that, wo believe, was
tho only reason why the steamer did
not come here. The Idaho hns not
made a trip every week. Shu missed
two trips, when thu river was really
closed to steamers of hor clnss on account of ice,
It is wise to provide ugainst emergencies that are liable to arise iu every
family. A cold may be a dangerous
thiug, or not, depending upon the means
at hand to combat it. In sudden attacks
of cold, croup, asthma, etc., Ayer's Cherry Pectoral will prove the quickest and
most effective curo, aud your best friend.
Immigration Prospects.—In conversation witli Mr. J. H. MoTavish,
Canadian Pacific Land Commissioner,
recently, a question was asked in ref-
ence to Uio prospects for immigration
noxt yoar, Mr. McTavish stated that
from all he cuuld learn, aud judging
by the inquiries nbout tho country,
and his general correspondence with
tho puopie interested, thoro was littlo
doubt that n largo'immigration to this
country next year would tako place.
Tho effect of the excellent advertising
thu country had got was beginning to
show itself by inquiries about lands,
etc. He referred to a letter from Mr.
Bogg, tho company'ti emigration agent
in London, in which it stated that
great good wna being dono, and had
been done, bythe membcraof the British Association, who visited Canada
na well as the northwest last fall. No
less than six of them hnd turned freo
lecturers on tho country. A very largo
number of articles particularly favorablo to tho northwest hnd buen published, aud thero was little doubt that
thousands would.be induced to emigrate from this country ns n result.—

A Bad Lot !—Tho Home Guardian,
a paper published at Olympia in the
interest of the Good Templars of Washington Territory nnd British Columbia,
delivers itself of the following remarkable declaration : "No bettor ovidonco

cuuld bo desired' than tho marked hostility shown him and his work by the
several papers of Nuw Westminster,
all of which aro iu the employ, ntid doing thu dirty work of, the u-hiskoy men

man's.work by the Good Templars of
this city (which lately appeared iu The

Considerable preparations had been
mado for the holding of tho Xmas treo
on Christmas eve under the auspices
of the Sabbath School, but, owing to
the state of tho rivor, it was found impossible to carry out the programme
as originally intended. The funds collected for the purposo of purchasing
presents for the teachers, supplying
refreshments, &e., were ample* Many
thanks are duo particularly to tho
bachelors for their liberality, and to
several of them for their untiring exertions, assisting the committee in
gathering funds, procuring the tree,
and otherwise lending nu assisting
hand. On Christmas eve, not knowing when thu entertainment would be
held, tho young Indies spnred no pains
in waiting upon as many of tho children
as possible and gave them the presents
provided. It might bo here stated
that the intention wna that the affair
should bo for all who chose to tnke
part in it, aud thnt parents would havu
tlio opportunity of supplying their
children with gifts for the occasion;
but on account of tho uncertainty of
thu entertainment being held ninny of
theso were distributed nml consequently never reached the truo. The entertainment, however, took place on New
Yenr'a evu. The crossing was good,
nnd a goodly number were in attendance. The programme consisted of
music by the choir, woll rendered;
readings by Miss Harding, W. Ver-
milyea nnd 0. D. Sweet, recitations by
Misa MoTaggart and J, B. Elliott, and
a jong each hy Mr. W, G. McMyn and
Mr. J. B. Elliott, both of which were
loudly applauded, The presents wore
all that could bu desired. Tho selections were well mado. All passed off
very pleasantly. Santa Claus waB unavoidably absent. Thu bachelors wure
supplied with cushions, work aprons,

Clinton, Jan. 4.—The Clinton\lib-
rary association's annual ball came off
on the 31st Doc, and Jan. 1st, at the
court house. Although the weather
had been unusually severe, marring
the prospects of a largo gathering,
there was a very good attendance of
the beauty and chivalry of the interior.
Thero wero somo present who travelled
many miles. The popularity of the
Olinton ball is an established fact.
Tho managing committee spared no
pains to make the affair a success.
The music wob this year particularly
excellent. Mrs. Bell on the organ,
Messrs, J, Foster and W. W. Brown
on the violins, aud Mr, Brown of Cariboo on the cornet, furnished an orchestra which gave great satisfaction.to the
votaries of Terpsichore. All enjoyed
themselves exceedingly well. The
weather haa been intensely cold during
thu last three weeks of December,
the thermometer at timea being as low
ns 30 ° below zero. There wero only
four inches of an'ow. At New Years
the weather moderated, nud now we
have a prospect of good sleighing. A
social and literary entertainment will
be held on' the 22nd for the purpose of
raising funds to pay the debt on the

As fur ns time nntl distance aro concerned it will be about the same thing
to the poople of Seattle to go to St,

By the Canadian Pacific route the
distance necessary to travel is twenty-
four miles less than by the Northern
Paoifio. This distance can be increased
twenty miles in favor of the Canadian
Pacifio by taking boats direct to Port
Moody or Port Hammond, on Fraser
river, which will probably be done within a twelvemonth, making the Canadian Pacific forty-four miles the abort*
er of the two. These distances will bo
further shortened by thu building of
thu Cascadu Division of the Northern
Pacitio, nnd by a line from the Canadian Pacific to Soattlo —one of the certainties of tho next five years. It will
then be, by either route, about 1,080
milea between St. Paul and Seattle.—

further extension on condition, among
others, thnt, in addition to giving up.n
milo belt at once, the company shall give
up a thousand acres more annually. This
arrangement is considered to bo in the
interest of the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company, aa well as in that of the proviuce, Without the extension, upon the
conditions named, the mill company,
under their lease, which has over two
yoars to run, would be in a position to
refuse to allow any Rales to be made of
Innds ou False Creek and Knglish Bay.
Sales of course could be made of landa
thore, subject to the lease, but the company for two years cold refuse possession,
and few salos could be made if possession
could not be had. It may reasonably
be expected that during the two years
considerable development will take place,
and to havo valuable property locked up
in the immediate vicinity of tho terminus could uot but be productive of injury
in retarding tho building up of a terminal
town. The right acquired under tbe arrangement to deal at onco with all the
land whUi will really be acquired in the
near future is therefore thought to be an
important advantage to tho company,
and the extension of tho limits to be
opened to sale every year will lie all the
interests of parties conocrned will demand. I have, etc., Wm. Smithe.

Letter from Van Home to Smithe.
Dear Sin.—I have your telegram of
thd Uth inst., to which 1 have rcpliul by
wire that 1 supposed that my telegram
to you of the "th ultimo, saying—"Board
approves arrangement proposed your-tol-
egrnm thirtieth," waa siillicicnt to fully
settle thu matter, nnd thnt 1 wired you
on tho ninth instant to make suru whether
or not anything else was necessary nt
present. I nlso stntcd in our telogrnm
ef to-day that our board would formally
approve thu necessary document at its
mooting next Tuesday; that Major Rogers was instructed to mako the necessary
surveys ns soon na ho could leave his
work wist of Kamloops Lake, which
would probably be in a weok or two; ami
thnt uo other suitable engineer was available;' nnd that nn authorized ollicer of
tho company would go to British Columbia within a week or two for tho purposo
of setting nil mnttcrs of detail; all of
which I now confirm. 1 regret exceedingly that our delay in this matter hns
given you any troublo, but 1 do not see
how it could well have been avoided.
I have "beon awny from Montreal much
of the time since I met you in Viotorin;
nnd thu ciiormoua amount of work wo
ure carrying on has required my almost
undivided attention, and this, to somo
extent, haa delayed matters relating to
tho Pacitio terminus. Tho Biirvcys would
have been eommenced .earlier, but we
hnve been unable to spare, from onr work
of location and construction, any of thu
men in whoso hands wo would have been
able to euti nst such an important matter.
Major Rogers wilt be able to locate the
line within two weeks nfter ho reaches
the ground, which, I trust, will uot be
many days nfter you receive this letter.

[ENCLOSURE,]
Extract J rom the. minute* of the regular
weekly meeting of the Hoard of Directors of the Canadian Pacific Railway
Coynpang, held ai Ihe office of Ihe Company in Montreal, on Tuesday, Ihe Hoth
day of November, 188$, at the hour of
12 o'clock, noon.
Present in person :—Mr. R. B. Angus,
Mr. W. C. Van Horne, Hon. Donald A.
Smith, Mr. John Turnbull. And by
proxy :•—Mr. George Stephen, Mr. P, du
P. Qrenfell, Mr. C. D. Hou; Mr. H. S.
Northcoto, Baron J. do Reinach.
Mr. C. Drinkwater, Secretary of the
company, also attended.
Mr. Van Horne stated that, in pursuance of the minute of tho board dated
Kith September laat, ho hail proposed to
tho government of British Columbia that,
in consideration of the conveyance to the
company of a tract of land ou Conl Harbor and English Bay, aggregating nbout
11,000 acres, and including tlie Granville
townsite and tho north half of the tract
kuo.-n as the Hastings Reserve, the
company proposed to extend tho main
lino of the Canadian Pacific Railway to
Coal Harbor and English Bay, hy tbe
time the through line is ready for operation, aud to establish the terminus of the
railway in the immediate vicinity of Coal
Harbor and English [lay, and commence
tho construction of tho necessary workshops and oilier works in time to provide
the necessary facilities for the opening of
traffic on the through line by the early
summer of 1886.
That by letter datod October 0th,1884,
the Hon Wm, Smitho, the Commissioner
of Crown Lands of British Columbia, had
replied as follows:
Referring to your letter dated Oth, and
posted on tho lllth ult., in which you ask
for a tract of laud on Coal Harbor and
English Bay, embracing an aggregate of
about 11,000 acres, aud incudhig tho
whole of Granville townsite and north
half of Hastings, in consideration of
whicli you say the company proposes to
extend the Canadian Pacifio Railway to
Coal Harbor and English Bay by tho
time the through line is ready for occupation, and to establish the terminus in tho
immediate vicinity of Coal Harbor and
English Bay,and commence the construction of the necessary workshops and
other works in timo to provide tho necessary facilities for the opening of traffic
on the through Hue by the early summer
of 1880.
I have the honor to inform you that
the government fully appreciate the advantage of having the main lino of railway extended to Coal Harbor and Knglish Bay, and are disposed to render to
tho company such aid as a fair consideration of tho interests of the provinco will
justify, in order to make the Canadian
Pacific Railway, upon which so much of
the future welfare of the country depends,
a complete success. They do not, however, consider that they. cau grant an
large an area of land for terminal purposes as you desire, nor do they fed that
thoy can add to the area verbally discussed at the timo of your visit to Victorin.
With a view,* however, to facilitate an
immediate arrangement, the govornment
would bo willing to give the land indicated in .rod tint on the enclosed plan, less a
sufficient area for government offices,
schools, etc., to the extent of, aay, five
aores, half in Granville and half on tho
south side of False Creek, within half a
mile of the shore.
The small Indian reserve on False
creek, which you include in your plan,
is held in trust by the Dominion Government, to whom you must apply if you
desire to obtain it. The government reserve on tlie point of the peninsula, near
the entrance to the harbor, is also in the
hands of the Doiniuion Government.
You wilt observe that the land uow
proposed to be givon to your company includes all the govemment land at Granville, except, as 1 have already snid, a
small area for offices, etc. Ou the other
hand, the whole of Hastings, a portion of
which it was proposed to grant to your
company, is retained. Although the area
at Hastings now retained exceeds tbat
proposed to be given in exchange nt
Granville, the value of tho two parcels
may bo taken as very nearly equal,
In order that the vexed question of the
Pacific terminus may bo finally settled,
and public confidence established, I have
to request that immediate Bteps mny be
taken for making the decision of the company authoritatively known, and thnt the
boundaries of tho laud hereby granted
be properly defined upon the ground.
With tins in view, the survey of the
line Bhould be undertaken at once, and a
definite time appointed for tho commencement of construction and of necessary
terminal buildings.
Tho grant of land will of Course bo
conditional upon the terms of agreement
being carried out, nnd time will be considered ns of the essence of the contract.
It was explained to you when you wore
hero that the government hud agreed
to extend the lease of the Hastings Saw
Mill Company for a period of five years,
on condition of their giving up immediately a 'strip nlong the shore line of
False Creek and Knglish Bay, extending
back a mile aud embracing an urea of
some 4,000 acres. The government have
since nureed to grant a further extension
ou condition, among others, that, *in addition to giving up a mile belt nt once,
the company shall give up a thousand
acres more annually.
This arrangement is considered to be
in the interests of the Canadian Pncilio
Company as well ns In th.tof the pro-
vice. Without the extension, upon the
conditions named, the mill company under tlieir lease, which has over two years
to run,would be iu n position to refuse to
allow any sales to be made of lands on
False Creek and English Bay.
Sales of course could bu made of lands
there, aubject to the lease, bnt tho company for two yenrs could refuse possession, and fow sales would lie mndo if possession could not be had. It mny reason--
ahly bo expected that, during the two
yenrs, considerable development will take
place, and, to have valuable property
locked up in the immediate vicinity of
the terminus, could not hut bo productive of injury in retarding the building up
of ;i terminal town.
The right acquired under the arrangement to deal at once with all tho land
whieh will roally he required in the nenr
future is therefore thought to be an iin*
portmit advnntngo to tho company, and
the extension of the limits to be oponod
to sale overy year will be all tho interests of parties concerned will demand.
The plan accompanying the letter of
the Hon, Commissioner of Crown lands,
ami whi :h is mado a part ot this minute,
represents only about 0,000 aores of land
to lie granted to tho company ; but, although this amount is deemed much leas.
than the compnny should receive, the directors desire to meet the Government of
British Columbia in the most liberal
spirit, aud it is, therefore,
Itesotved, That the proposition contain*
od in tho proposition of the Hon. Commissioner of Crown Lands, dated the Gtli
of October, 1884, be, and the same ,.s
hereby accepted and agreed to.
That, in consideration thereof, tlio
main line of the Canadian Pacific Railway be extended to Coal Harbor and
English Iky by the time the through line
ia ready for operation.
That the terminus of tho railway be
established in tho immediate vicinity ef
Coal Harbor and English Bay, and that
the construction of the necessary workshops aud other worka bo commenced in
time to provide the neceaaary facilities
for the opening of traffic on the through
line by the early summer of 1880.
Thata aurvey of the proposed extension, and of the lnnd at Coal Harbor and
English Bay proposed to be granted to
the company be at once made, and that
an agreemment embodying .the terma
of the grant, as contained in the said letter of tlie Hon, Commissioner of Crown
Lands, be entered into and executed by
the proper officers of the company.
That the Hon. Donald A. Smith aud
Mr. Richard B, Angus he, and they are
hereby, appointed trustees to receivo and
hold the lauds above referred to, in trust
for, and on behalf of, the company.

Washington, Jan. 1*2—The senate
apent three hours to-day iu secret discussion of the Nicaragua!! canal treaty.
Senator Miller of California made a long
and formal speech in its support, giving
tho history of the negotiation from the
beginning, and Senator Sherman made
au equally formal speech in opposition,
basing his argument chiefly on tlie belief
that the Claytoh-Bulwer treaty was still
in force. At tho conclusion of the debate a motion waa made to have tiie
two Bpeeches printed for the use of tlie
senate in executive session, but was
withdrawn upon the suggestion of danger that the copies might reach the press
and tho public.
Washington, Jan. 13.—Representative Slocum was instructed by the com-
mittee on military affairs to-day to call
up the senate bill providing for the retirement' of General Grant at the first
opportunity Tho bill is now on the
apeaker's table. Gen, RosecranB will
oppose the bill when it is considered in
the house.
London, Jan. 13,—The secretary of
state for the colonial department haa
sent a circular dispatch to tlie governments of the different Australian colon-
iea, reassuring them that the imperial
government ia taking notion to prevent
an extension of the annexations by foreign powers iu the Southern Pacific.
PAWS, Jan. 13.—It is nssertcd that
Admiral Peyren has ordered the chartering of aix more steamers to transport
troops aud war material to China.
Each vessels costs the country 4000
francs daily. Competent authorities
ulfirni thnt unless the Cambodia revolt
is speedily suppressed 5000 additional
troops will be required to quell the disturbance. King Norodon is virtually a
prisoner in his own palace. The revolt
ts directed ns much against him as
against the French, because he allowed
himself to be forced into the recent
treaty.
Mankato, Minn., Jan. 13.—Ex-Vice-
President Schuyler Colfax dropped dead
at 10:35 this morning at tho Omaha
depot. .."He arrived on the Milwaukee
road from tho east at 10 o'clock and
walked to tho Omaha depot, a distance
of three-fourths of a mile, with the thermometer at thirty degrees below zero.
After arriving at the depot he lived only
about Jive minutes. It is supposed that
the extreme cold, subsequent heat and
over-exertion caused a stoppage of the
flow of blood to the heart. The re-
mama were taken in charge by the Odd
Fellows, and uow lie at Dr. Harrington's residence. Every attention isjbeing
paid tho remains. Word has beeu sent
to the family of deceased and the president has been notified, and orders are
now awaited.

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground ia the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It ia moreover ono of
tho most interesting to lovers of good
music as boing the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, whicli cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
tho requirements ot the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it ia impossible to judge
the merits of high-elans instruments. The
enterpriae displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business has been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchaso proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision mode for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
aeen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city nud country musicians.
Right well do the Compnny deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen yenrs ngo, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W. S. Russell, superintendent of the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business haa
been booming. A further stimulus waa
given tn the concern by tho admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making wns added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
piauoH per mouth. These are produced
by 250 hands, who receive in wages
about $15,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, aud
they havo branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of tbe Company's workmanship. An upright pinno
of burr walnut is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. 1 liese
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by baud rubbing witli oil for hours. The touch is
quick uud easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to the beat
American pianos.
The organa made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They nre
manufactured in all styles, nud at all
prices, ranging from $50 to?l,000. Many
sample organs are shown iu the pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
prosont at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected hero at the
end of the week. It is arranged to bo
blown by Turk's water motor, whicli has
been placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The organa run through all grades, from the
thouaand dollar instrument down to the
Sarlor favorite. The cases show won-
orful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship.
The case which secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Casts for parlor organs are chaste in design and artistic iu execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for aweet-
ness of tone and elasticity of touch they
nro model instruments; whilo visitors
can themselves judgo ns to the beauty
and style of the cases.
[T. R. Pearson A; Co., Now Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organa

to purchase should not fail to communicate with them. Sample organs on view.

A REMARKABLE STORY.
"I thought you havo been tnlking
about Edward,11 Catherine snid.
"Oh dear, no. Tt waa whether three
dances together wasn't perhaps a littlo
—for I nlwnya foul tho responsibility
of belonging to the fumily, Cousin
Onthotine, and 1 wouldn't for the
world do anything- it is quite different wiih gentlemen, Mr. Edward
was just carrying on aa usual."
"But, Emmn, you must tell mt
what you mean by 'carrying on.'"
"Oh, I don't mean any harm," Emma would say. "I wonder what young
Mr. Morridow -if lio is well off, nud
all that ? Heator has cousina all round
to toll hor what's boat, nnd of course
ahe does nob need to bo on her p'a and
ci'b, like me."
Catherine had tit follow a mazy,
vague nntl wondering clow thus,
through acres of indifferent mutter,
and to piece together broken scraps of
information which were nover intended
to affect her at all. But thoy did affect her sometimes ao powerfully that
she had her hand sometimes on tlio
bell, not only that evening, but on several other occiiBions, to intimate thnt
sha should want tho carriage nt ten
o'clock—a proceeding which would have
convulsed tlio household at home, nnd
carried consternation to the recipients
of tho unlooked for honor. But, on
further consideration, Catherino always succeeded ill subduing herself,
often sadly enough saying to hersolf
that it would be time onough when he
. told hor—why ahould alio go out to
meet trouble? Hor heart so took her
strength from her, and changed her
natural temperament, that Catherino
restrained hers'ilf, With a shrinking
which no u»e wha knew hor would
have believed in, from uny contact
with irresistible fact, and decided thnt
rathor than find out the vanity of hor
confidence it waa better to bo deceived.
Thua the houso on the lull, which
flaunted forth overy Thursday evening
the great lamps of ita lighted windows
and the lines of Chinese lanterns in the
conservatory became the centre, for
the moment, of a great deal of life nnd
many anxious thoughts. It turned
Ellen's head with pride and delight
when aho received indications of this,
whicli, indeed, came to her on all aides.
When a shade of alarm crossed Algernon's faco nt the amount of tho bills,
ahe took a lofty position whicli no man
pretending to any spirit could hnve
gone against. "Goodness, Algy, how
can you look ao glum about a pound or
two,when you aee we nre doing a great
work !" Ellen said. "Well, if it is not
more important than mothers' meetings, I don't know what words mean ;
and Mr. Ransom. says the mothers'
meetings are a groat work." Algernon
laughed', but he, too, felt a thrill of
pride. To have made the house,which,
though it was Ellen's, was a Merridew
li-.use, and his own, into a centre for
the great Vernon family, was, if not
a grout work, at least a great lucid success, such ns old Morridew's sou could
never havo hoped to attain to. And,
indeed, Algernon's remonstrances re.
garding the bills worn of thu feeblest
description. He was tbo much devot-
to liis wife to have interfered with her,
even had not the balance of moral
force been on her side. And he wns j
proud of the extravagance and the
commotion, and the way in whieh the I
elders shook tlieir heads. It is pleasant to mako a sensation, nnd Algernon
was comforted by the knowledge that
ho hnd already made a little money iu
his stockbroking transact ions, and also
hoped to make a great denl mure.
The young men had carried on their
transactions with considerable vigor,'
though with littlo risk so far as Algernon and Hurry wero concerned. But
Edward's was a different caao. The
venture upon which ho had pondered
with bo much anxiety had turned out
favorably, and he had gone on without
telling his secrets to any one, with a
general amount uf success wliich had
mado the operation of risking other
people's money seem quite natural to
him—a process without any practical
consequences at all, except the accumulation of a good deal of money under hia own namo, which ia une of Lhe
happiest of sensations, To his temperament, indeed, it is by no means certain that tho vicissitudes of the enreor
in which ha had embarked, the tragic
suspense in which he was occasionally
held, and tho transport of deliverance
that followed, were not in themselves
the highest pleasures of which he wna
capable. And even so early in his career aa this, an answer would come,
He had self-command not to betray
himsolf when these moments arrived,
and though there* wero eyea keen
enough to see thnt something had produced a change in him, they wero na
has beeu seen in Catherine's case deceived ns to the causo of his perturbation. Heator did not have su many
opportunities of studying him, aud ahe
had no clew tu the business com plications in which he was involved, but
sho Had many thoughts in hor uwn
mind na to the cause of the commotion,
which she saw, vaguely, without understanding it. Sume of the members
ofthe general society, strangers, who
sometimes perceive a departure from
habit which does not Blrike the most
inttmnte, had said of Edward, on moro
than one occasion, that ho must be iu
lovo, Waa he iu lovo ? Heator hnd
felt that a look was directed to herself
when this was said, ami that, u aupprims-
ed laugh hnd run around tho little
«roup. She wan hersulf agitated by
tumults which she could not understand, commotions in which Edwnrd
was certainly involved, and his name
thus mentioned brought the blood to
her cheek. Wna ho in lovo? Sho did
not want to turn tho question upon
herself to bring tho matter to any conclusion, ono wny or another. He waa
very pale that-evening, yet would Hush,
ns she herself did, growing red in a moment and then palo again ; and there
was a watchful nir nbout him, as of u
man who expected to hear something
or, see sume 'ouo whom nohudy else
lookod for. A man who was in love
did uot behave ao—hu was absorbed in
tha being whom he loved. Ho is not
absorbed iu me, tho girl naid to herself,
involuntarily, then blushed, as if her
thought had been found out. Edwnrd
came up to her nt this moment, which
made her confusion the greater.
"Why do you change color so? What
is the matter V he said to hev.
"It is you who are changing color,"
said Hester, not knowing how elso to
defend herself.
Instead of contradicting hor, or of
throwing off tho accusation, he suddenly took lior hand, and drew it through
hia arm. .
"It ia true, he said; "I Imve something on my mind. You wure going to
danco this waltz with me. Como into
the hall * it is cool theVe, and let us
talk instead." .
Every inch of available apace in the
house wna Riven up to tha accommoda
tion of tho guests, and tho hall waa filled, liko tlio conservatory, with plants,
among which little groups of two could
find corners. Edward established Heater in one of those, and placed a chair
for himsolf, su ns to cut her off from
everybody.
"You uro the only one that can understand," he said. "I can speak to
you. Dun't mind uio if I-look like a
fool.    I nih too anxious to talk."
"What is it 1" sho said, with a tremor of sympathetic anxiety.
"It ia only business, ho snid, "but it
is business so unexpected that even bo-
aido you I mn obliged to think of it,
Cnu a man aay more than that?" he
asked, with something in hia eyes
which Hestor bed never aeon thero ao
distinctly before, nnd which silenced
her One groat emotion clears the
wny for another. Edward, iu tho commotion of his being, was almost ready
to rush into words thut, being said,
would hnvo turned hia lifo upside
down nnd shattered all his prosont
foundations, He was saved by nn incident which was of the moat ordinary,
commonplace kind. Thero camo a violent ring ut tho door, whicli wiib within
half a dozen steps of the spot where
they aat. Hnlf a dozen beads immediately protruded from the little banks
of foliage to boo wlmt this, odd interruption could mean, for nll the guests
had nrrived, nud it waa not lato enough
for any uno to go away. Heater snw
that all the color obbod immediately
out of Edward's fnco. Ho did not even
attempt to any. u word to her, but aat
perfectly still, slightly turned towards
tho duor, but nut looking out, awaiting
whatever might como. It Boomed to
Hostor that novor in her lifo had ahe so
understood the power of Fnte, the moment when Nature and Lifo seemed to
aland still before some event, A inn-
ment aftor, the footman came up, nnd
handed a telegram to Edward.. He
tore it open, with trembling hands.
The next moment he jumped up from
hia sent with a suppressed cry (if triumph. "Hurrah !" he said, and then,
with a laugh whicli was vory unsteady,
ho held out tho dispatch to her. All
that it contained woro tho words " All
right,*'1 But aomohow il waa not to
these words that Hestur's eyea confined
themselves. "From Ashton, London,"
she said, without knowing thnt hIio did
ao, before hu thrust the pink papor
into his pocket. "Como nlong," he
Said, "the waltz ,is hot half over; wo
ahall be in time yet." And for the rest
of tho evening Edwnrd waa in wild
spirits, dancing overy dance. Ho even
asked the girls to"take him with them
in their Ily as far aa the Grange, in hia
reckless uxhiliratiun, and as ho gut
out, in llio darkness, Hester felt a kiss
upon her hand. This startled hor still
more than the telegram. "Till tomorrow," ho aaid, aa they rumbled
awny.
"What doos he moan by 'till to-morrow'? He muat bo coming to make you
nu oiler—that is how they do. It often
happens nfter a danco—when it is going to happen/' Emma aaid, iu tho
darkness, with » little sigh.
*      *      *      *      ■*■■      *
Was ho in lovo? That thia was a
question very interesting to Hostor
there can be uo reason to conceal. Sho
did not even conceal it from herself,
nor did sho trifle with herself by pretending to suppose tlmt if he wore in
love ii could be willi any one olso.
There was no uno elso who. had ever
appeared tu attract him. Tu nobody
had hu au nincli as given his passing
attention, Wltyu he had neglected her
at tho Grange it had been truly, as he
said, fur no higher reason than that he
might hand down the old ladies to supper or to toa. No young ono hnd ever
been suggested ns having any attraction for him. Hester did hor hest to
enter calmly into this question. It is
ouo which it is really sutnctimos vory
diflicult fur a young woman to decide
upon. What is conspicuous nud apparent tu others will ufteu remain'to
her u question full uf doubt nud uncertainty; and it ia tu bo feared that when
this ia tho case it is nil
the more likely that her own sentiments will bo capable of very little
question. This, however, waa not exactly tho ense with Heater, Her mind
was very much interested, and, indeed,
excited. She wanted to know what.
Edward meant, From tho first morning when ho had met her, n child.wnn*
dering un tbe common, hia manner had
been different t'i hur fiom tho manner
of other people, or from his own manner to others. Hia eyes had lingered
upon her with pleasure evon whon hia
look hud beon atualthy. Even when it
had been but a glance in passing they
hnd suid things tu her which no other
eyes ever snid. His interest in her had
never failed. It had not leaped, liko
Harry's, after a good deal of indifference, into a sudden outburst, Tliu very
charm and attraction of it had lain in
the restraint, whicli Hoster had often
considered to ba dishonest, and against
which aho hnd chafed. She had known
all thruugh, even in thoso eveningi
when he had neglected her, that ho
was always conscious whnt she was doing, and knew, without looking, whon
any onu went to talk toiler, when sho
left tlie ruum and when she came hack.
This had kepi her own interest iu him
unvarying! But Hestor was not any
moro aure of her own sentiments than
of lii». fiho remembered with sumo
shame that Roland Ashton's presence
iind mado a great difl'eronco in her
mind us regarded Edward. Shu had
felt hut lit liu curiosity'about him when
that stranger was at the Vernonry. All
the foreground of her mind had boon
so ploasautly occupied by that new
figure, which wns in itself much
mow attractive than Edward, that im
had slid almost completely uut of her
thoughts. And ibis fact, which waa
only quito apparent tu her after Roland
waa gune, had greatly discomfited
Hotter, and given her n very small
opinion of herself. Was it possible
that nny now object, that might appear would havo anything like the
samo effect upon her ? The effect hnd
passed away, and Edward had como
slowly back to Ills original position aa
thu pet-son in Redborough who interested her must. Hul tho incident had been
of a very disturbing character, and hnd
altogether confused hor ideas, Therefore the question wns uno of a very
special interest. To know exactly how
ho regarded hor would much help hor
in deciding the other question, not less
important, which wiib, how ahe regarded him ? Everything thus depended, j
Heator folt, oi) Edward's sentiments.
If it should turn out that he lovod her
—strango thought, whicli made her
heart beat !—it could not be but that,
hi grent and tender gratitude for such
a gift, alio ahould love him. She did
nut feci offended at his efforts to disguise his feelings, or uven to get the
botter of them—never, at least, when
aim waa coul nud iu command of ber
judgment; but there could be uo doubt
that alio was very curious and anxious
tu know them.
