British Columbia nfeeds only to
bo opened up, put in direct communication with tlm oast, and peopled
with settlers of the right stamp to
become one of the uiost important
provinces of the Dominion, Its
being washed by the waves of the
Pacific, and being the gateway <**■?
Canada to the East, makes it peculiarly valuable to tho Dominion in
a commercial sense.—Montreal Her-
. aid.
Tho first telegraphic message hns
been sent from Winnipeg to Montreal through Canadian territory.
Thus the great link botween Old
and New Canada has been established ; and that of railroad communication will only bo a few months
later. A fow months more and
overy provinco of this Dominion can
be reached from Ottawa in a much
shorter period than by travelling
through American territory as hitherto has beeu the en tie. — Ottawa
Free Pree Press.
Tho Americans have, in effect,
expressed tlieir willingness to abol
ish the customs line whicli now extends across the continent, hampering trade and embarrassing tiie people. It only remains for Canada to
fall in with tho proposition. If tlie
peoplo were. left to themselves thoy
would do so to-morrow; und the
Dominion would enter, as a consequence, upon a period of prosperity
such as has not been dreamed of
heretofore. But tho politicians and
monopolists aro against it; therefore
delay is inevitable.—Manitoba Free
Press.

It is stated that the collection o'f
cattle at tho great stock-breeding
farms of Canada ia among the most
valuable in the world. It is made
up of the very best blood of tho
bovine aristocracy of England. Not
many years ago there were no pure
bred herds ;n the country, except
tlio small species of cow in the
French part of lower Canada, wliich
wore brought in chiefly from Bre-
tagne, and possess the milking characteristics of tho Alderneys. Today
there are in Canada and tlio Canadian North-West many herds of tlio
best English breeds, with a pure
and unbroken record extending back
ni any generations. — Manchester
(Friy.)Examiner,
A contraband trade in saintly
relics been discovered at Rome, and
denounced both thero and iu Canada
by tho authorities of tho Church.
A letter published on the authority
of the Bishop of Montreal tells how
the imposture was detected. Doubts
had for some time existed at Rome
about the genuineness of certain
corps saints which have been shipped
to different parts of the world dur-'
ing the past ton years. Tho Cardinal Vicar sent to bishops in dif-
- ferent countrios requiring them to
produce the letters authenticating
theso relics. The Bishop of Montreal sent to Rome all tlio letters
purporting to authenticate the relics
received in Canada since 1871. A
reply was received that these letters
were forgeries. Thereupon ' tho
Bishop of Montreal gave ordors to
havo the falso relics removed from
the churches and chapels in which
they had been placed. What are
we to think of the miraculous cures
which these relics, had meanwhile
been the means of producing ?—The
Week.

At a meeting uf the Fort Langley
Lodge, I.O.G.T., it was moved by Hev.
R. B, Hemlaw, ■oconded by Mr. H.
Wark:
That we at a Boctiun of tho great
temperance family rejoico in tho success thnt iB crowning the efforts of our
brethren in securing the adoption of
the Scott Act in the eastern and central sections of our great Dominion;
And whereas wo believe the time has
come whon similar effort should bo
made in this country, that the traffio
in intoxicating liquors maybocomoa
thing of the past; And whereas we believe that this oan be at present best
accomplished by bringing into force
tha act above mentioned; Bo it therefore resolved that wo as a socioty nnd
as individuals hereby pledge ourselves
to work in every legitimate way to
secure the adoption of tho Scott Act
in tbis (New Westminster) district;
and in furtherance thereof a committee
is hereby appointed whoso duty it shnll
bo to correspond with the different
temneranco organizations and workers,
to the end, that at a date as early as
possible a convention be huld at some
central point to consider the Advisability, and in the event of a decision
in favor thereof, to consider the necessary stens for submitting the said uot
to the electors of the above-mentioned
district.
In accordance with this resolution,
the Rev, R. B. Hemlaw, Rev. Alex.
Dunn, and Mr, Jas. Sinclair, woro np-
Eolnted tho committee, with Kov, Mr.
temlaw as corresponding secretary.
Squatters' Klfflits.
Editor Columbian.—Oan you inform your readers whnt' supposed or
actual line of reasoningnud argument
was used by that "Star Chamber In
quisition," yclept tho Squattars' Rights
Committee, by whioh they arrivod at
a conclusion so favorablo to tho claim
anta, us any informntion would bo acceptable touching this matter that
would place the committee above tho
suspicion of hnving been naked for nnd
appointed solely for the- purposo of
bulldozing the government into acceding to the illegal, unwarranted, and
unscrupulous, demands «4 ft ring of
speculators who, strong iu the kuowl-
udge thnt tho government would havo
a bare majority on their side on the
ratification of tho agreement with the
0. P. R,t have used that knowledge to
further their own selfish ends and
aims, und by ao doing Imve brought
ridiculo on our govornmont hy proving
in committeo thnt n reserve plnced on
lands cannot bo enforced when uny
non-respecter of Inw nnd ordor, with
capital at his bnck, wishes to acquire
said lands eithor for himself or his
friends,
Tho report of Ihu committee on
s-'iinlteia' rights Mpeaks of these squatters ns immigrants lately arrived,
ignorant of the modes of acquiring
government land, and that upon application to the iim nitration agent for information thoy wero misled by him as
to '.lie facts of tho matter, nnd upon
that UHBumptiob of supposed facts their
rights arO uphtld and maintained.
Now tome of this committee must
have known thnt some, nay thp grenter
portion of thoso poor misled squatters,
these innocent, ignorant immigrant)-,
weto residents of loug standing in the
provinco, known to hundreds the
length and breadth of the land, well
versed in land matters, having owned
nnd occupied hind hero and elsewhere
throughout the province; nnd I state
horo without fear of successful contradiction that if oue of theso poor innocent squatters had not sold a piece of
lnnd that ho had pre-empted aome
yeurs previous within the limits of the
Haatiiiy.-. Mill louse for §2,000, thore
would to-dny hnve been no squatters
on thia lnnd, ns the lnnd ia valueless
for agricultural purposes nud nll the
timber is cut off. But this mnn, Hading thnt parties hud fnith in tho ultimate removal of the terminus to thia
Vicinity, commenced operations on an
extended scale. Cabins were erected
all nlong. tho water front of English
Buy nnd False Creek, uud frionds of
his woro installed therein, nnd all of
thia within tlio laat 14 months.    Prior
to that there were no squatters'**ttled
there.
Tho foregoing paragraph shows tho
elms of men these squntters nre, and I
leave the render to judge whether they
would be likely to bo misled by nny
misrepresentations the immigration
agont mny nt some timo unwittingly
have mndo; und even, for argument's
sake, admitting that they tuny have been
deceived, doos that give them nny right
to tho land? I arguo not. Tho most
thoy could lay cluim to would be compensation for losses sustained through
negligence or ignorance of a pnid official of tho government.
There is another matter iu connection with this subject that I would call
your attention to, nnd that is tho claim
of Gannon to 20 acres on the town sito
of Orunville, which is claimed ns a
mineral location. I can most emphatically state, and can verify my statements, thnt there is not a shadow of
justico in the claim, no mineral existing on the lnnd ns far as known; and I
would suggest that enquiry oh the part
uf tho government be mndo iu this
cuse uud boo if some designing party
or parties nre not using thin man Gannon to furthor their own mercenary
ends und acquire through him a large
bHcc of vory valuable property. The
attorney ou behalf of the squatters
might be nblu to throw some light on
this matter. Hoping you will excuse
me for taking up so much of your valuable space, I remain, yours,
Nemesis.

Mull Delays Again.
In another column will bb found
a lotter from un influential gentleman at Sumas respecting the vexations of Our present mail service,
We have over and over itguiu inferred to this subject, nnd yet there is
apparently no effort whatever mado
to improve the servico. When the
mail was given to the railway we
pointed out how inconvenient the
arrangement would be for the important settlements on the south
side of the river, but not withstanding the obviousness of this fact the
farce of a mail service by railway
has been going on till winter. We
have endeavored fruitlessly to ascertain upon what basis tho mail service is founded. It seems there-is
no specific contract at all with the
O.P.N.Co., nnd that company runs
the mail service just us its owu convenience suggestb. The company is
Iwth tlie head nnd tail of the service, and the officials sit blinking
over irregularities and delays and
grievances which nothing but the
patience of the people could tolerate.
Ijet our representative now at Ottawa thoroughly sift the mail service, and let the lash fall where it
should.
A Wide Difference.
There is a sentence in the Guardian's editorial of last Wednesday
which ought not to pass unnoticed.
Speaking of tlie Conl Harbor hinds
the Guardian says: "Pray wliatis
honest John (meaning the provincial secretary) in relation to the
lands he holds at Goal Harbor?
Simply a squatter. Bid he ever
take up these lands for settlement?
Decidedly not; tbey were taken up
for purely speculative purposes."
Now, the Guardian* 8 evident object
in these remarks is to produce the
impression tbat the provincial secretary pre-empted or squatted upon
certain lands at Goal Harbor, and
that while luVliitasi'lt' .secures a perfect title, he refuses torocoguizo
flic rights of other squUttors on
similar lands. Tlie facts are very
ditierent. The provincial secretary
never pre-empted or squatted upon
any lands whatever in the region of
Coul Harbor, us the records of tlie
land oflico will show. Any lands
he holds tliere were acquired liy
purchaso. The only possible truth
contained in the Guardian's article
18 the assertion that these lauds
were acquired by tlie provincial
secretary for speculative purposes.
We do not question this. The provincial secretary never stated or
pretended that it was his intention
to make farms out of bis Coal Harbor property. But some of tlie
squatters do claim that tbey took
up this land for agricultural purposes, and not for speculation. Wo
presume it will be admitted that
the provincial secretary has liberty
to speculate iu lands or otherwise
with his own money. If, while
lioldimr a government otlice, he had
pre-empted any of these lauds, or
squatted upon them, wc could not
say one word in his defence. The
Gwtrdian's article is misleading,
and we are afraid it was made so
purposely.
River Navigation.
The letter signed ''Merchant,"
which appeared in a recent issue of
ThbColi.mbias, lias produced somewhat of a sensation in this comuiii-
-nity. Months ngo it was freely
stated that the C.P.N.Co. intended
to place its best steamer on the Port
Moody route, nnd supply this city
with a semi-weekly service liy the
Rithet. Merchant's letter, however,
wus the first intimation we have
heard of an intention to close tl
railway stations on the river against
freight, But if the C.P.N.Co. and
Mr. Onderdonk come to tbe conclusion that it would be in their interest to close these stations, and the
people do not enter a vigorous pro-
teat, we presume tbey wiil be closed.
It has long ago become apparent
that none of these companies will
engage in a service for the public
good if they cau soe moro money
elsewhere. It would be useless to
remind Capt. Irving how tho people
of New Westminster and the Fruser
river backed up him and his steamers against Victoria influences, or
how he has deserted the mainland
aud allied himself with monopolies
who have nft concern whatever for
either the Royal, Gity or the Fraser.
We cannot look for favors from any
company controlled in Victoria. But
the people surely have some rights
which th-iy may be able to compel
contractors and monopolists to respect, it cannot be possible that
our representatives at Ottawa will
fail to protest against the iniquity
of allowing iir. Onderdonk to close
the station at Port Hammond and
force all freight over the circuitous
and costly route via Port Moody.
Mr. Onderdonk runs the railway
merely upon sufferance, The federal
government has an undoubted right
to step in and either assume the
management of the road or close it
up. If tlie people make use of the
resources within their reach Mr.
Ondordonk and tlio C.P.N.Co. dure
not carry out the iniquitous programme suggested by Merchant.
Port Hammond station must bo
kept open for tbe reception of
freight, until railway connection
has been secured for tliis city at
least, and we mistake the temper of
the people if they will permit any
set of men to close it.
Mr. Macule's Letter.
In another colmnn.we publish a
letter from Mr. William Mackie,
ono of tlio Conl Harbor squatters,
in whicli he takes exception to
some statements made iu The Co-
lumhiam. Having given publicity
to his letter Mr. Mackie must permit us to make some observations.
Aud, lirst,'"our correspondent can
scarcely bo in earnest when he suggests that wo should have been
"thoroughly posted upon all the facts
and merits of the respective claimants" before venturing to discuss
the question. The committee specially created for that purpose bus
for many days been endeavoring so
to post itself, but when its report
was placed beforo the bouse it was
found tlmt the conclusions arrived
at by different members differed
most widely from each other. The
evidence of the claimants themselves
is so contradictory nnd conflicting
that one finds it impossible to reach
any definite conclusion. Mr. Mackie asks whose fault it is that there
has been a delay in closing the negotiations. The fault, we think,
rests with the squatters and the
legislature, and not with the government. Tlie government made a
definite arrangement with the syndicate under the belief that- these
claimants hud no title whatever to
the lands. But tbe claimants succeeded in enlisting tbo interest and
co-operation of so many people in
tlieir efforts to secure a title that
a majority of the legislature wns induced to consider these claims.
Here is where the mistake began,
and the delay arose. The cases, as
we have have all along maintained,
sbould have gone to the courts and
not to the legislature; and the
houso should have ratified tlio agreement without delay. Then the
country would have begun at once
to reap the benefit of the arrangement. The statement that "none
of the bind in question comes within 12 miles of the line of railway or
terminus" is a subterfuge. Tiie
laud lies close to the prospective
terminus, and Mr. Mackie knows
this thoroughly. Mr. Mackie endeavors to maintain again that this
land was taken up for agricultural
purposes, but it is scarcely necessary to say more on this subject.
Several witnesses swear that it
would cost a great deal to clear tho
land. Sir. Stewart, ono of the
claimants, puts the cost of clearing
at 8200 an acre; Mr. Mackie himself swears it is worth §150; Mr.
J. C. Hughes, who is both thoroughly disinterested and competent,
snys it would cost aliout $250, nnd
that the land is of about tho same
quality as is found surrounding tliis
city! Mr, Greer says it could not
be cleared for less than $500 an
acre!! Now, does Mr. Mackie
think any person iu his senses will
believe that such land was taken up
for agricultural purposes, when far
botter land already cleared could be
bought for a great deal less than
one quarter the price? Wo are not
"delving iu darkness on squatters'
combinations and rings." Mr. Mackie in bis evidence before the committee says: "Chishobn and Bole
and others are in with me to a certain extent;" Mr. Taylor, another
claimant, gives the following evidence : "The names uf the False
Creek Land Syndicate are B, Ross,
Chisholm, Brighouse, Black, John-
son, Blair Bros., VftttBrnmor, Laidlaw, J. A. Webster, Mackie Sr.,
Miickio Jun., Sprott, W. N, Bolo,
If.V.Edmonds." After suoh sworn
statements it is useless for Mr,
Mackie to tell us there nre no combinations ' or syndicates or rings.
Mr. Mackie asks if we havo any
proofs that attempts were made to
illfluenflo members of the legislature
improperly. Yes, there is undoubt
etl evidence of such an attempt, aud
it is well known Imth in Victoria
and this city. What Mr. Mackie
moans about persons in glass houses
we are at a Kiss to comprehend, The
doctrine that those claims should be
hoard iu tho courts is not new—it
is the doctrine which Tiik Gomim-
than has always hold, The concluding paragraph' of Mr. Mackie's
letter is intended, apparently, to
enlist for the squatters general public sympathy by pretending that till
the settlers throughout this district
are in tho same position. We fancy
theso settlers are too well informed
to lie disturbed by such a pretence.
Mr. Mackie and the other Coal Hnrbor claimants must know that their
claims are entirely exceptional. In
his evidence Mr. ('illepsio (one of
tlio claimants) says: "I don't know
whose land it was. I thought tliere
wns some doubt about it, and that
is why I took the risk and built
there." Mr. Mackie himself testifies : "J. went on the land and took
my chance o£ having my right recognized." This is really the basis of
these claims. Tbe claimants thought
there was a possibility of being able
to hold the lands because the matter was in doubt; they took tho
chance, and if it turns out that thoy
Imve no legal churn they must take
tlie consequences. It is to bo regretted that instead of being warned
by tjie i ni in ignition agent, thoy were
apparently encouraged by him to go
upon these doubtful lands. But
Mr. Mackie says he read all the
provincial land acts and the Dominion net too, and yet lie seems to
have carefully avoided going for information to the land oilice, where
naturally any person in search of
hinds would have made application.
Mr, Mackie bus lieen fourteen years
a residont of tbis province and cannot successfully plead ignorance of
the ways of the country. With respect to tlie remark wliich he attributes to the provincial secretary,
at present we can only say that we
don't believe ho ever made such a
remark.

up, fell over tiio front of the cart, mid
tho wheels passed over hiin. Ono

that the members will bave an opportunity of spoing'tho entire line. Out
of the 211 members of tbo Commons
it is expeoted that at least 140 will go.
Thon, from the 72 senators, it:is probable 40 will accompany the party. Including now spa pur mon, deputy bends
and all, thero is overy likelihood the
party will number 300. It will take
about 15 sleepers to accommodate the
party, nnd, if refreshment rooms nlong
the route nro not used, several dining
cars will have to bo brought along with
the train.
Highway Robbery.—On Saturday
two men, named Hon. Smith and C.
Miller, came up before Mr. W, D.
Ferris, J. P., on a chargo of robbery.
The particulars of the caso as brought
out iu ovidonco seem to be briefly as
follows: Tho two prisoners, in company with Hugh Lynn and Murray,
had been drinking at the Englo hotel;
afterwards they went to a house of ill
fame on Blackie st.; after leaving that
plnco Lynn and Murray went down to
the swump;  bolow the mill tbe two
Emoncrs jumped on Lynn and robbed
im. Murray appears to hnvo been
nil accomplice nfter the fact nt least,
and admitted that bu received $20 to
keep his mouth shut; hu heard tho
prisoners Bay they got $70 from Lynn,
The magistrate committed Smith aud
Miller for trial. The evidence in this
case given by Thos. Clelnnd, une bf
the proprietors of the hotel, was due
of the most extraordinary pieceB of
contradiction ever given in nuy court.
He seemed bound to shield tho prisoners.
From Maple Ridge.
'Corrospimijeni'e of Hie Columbian.)
A vory interesting Band of Hope
social nnd concert was held under the
auspices of tho W.C.T.TJ., iu the
Mothndist church nt Maple Ridge, on
the evoning of the 7th iust. The
church was tastefully decorated with
mottoes and evergreens, and presented
a cheerful and attractive appearance.
The' programme wus nil that cuuld bo
desired, consisting of choice readings,
recitations and dialogues, interspersed
with vocal and instrumental music; nil
of which was rendered to tho entire
satisfaction of thu-audience The following wero the recitntioiis. "Lostaud
found," by Katio Sinclair; "Intemperance," by Aggie Irving; "Father's
a Drunkard aud Mother is Dead," by
Jennie Trembath; "Hate of tho Bowl,"
by Mrs. Seccnmbu; and "Tho Drunkard's Wife," by Mrs. MoDonell. The
dialogues were: "Young England," by
Richurd Trembath and Arthur Howison; "Prohibition," by Elian Edgo and
Ernest Howison; but the climax wus
reached in "The Everlasting Talker,"
by live young ladies iu whioh Miss
Winnie Howison appeared to great advantage. Tho solos "Tho Drunkard's
Child," by Arthur Howison; "Don't
you go Tommy," by Miss C. Sinclair;
and "Don't Stay Lato To-Night," and
"Tired," by Mrs. Seccombo; were well
received and called forth much applause. /All the choruses took well.
Intermission of half uu hour was given
when the good things provided by tho
ladies were handed around, nlso a box
of beautiful apples presented by Mr.
Howison. A short address by Mrs.
Seccombe, and the singing of the Temperance Doxology, brought this interesting meeting to a close. The ladies
of the union ure to be congratulated
on the earnest efforts they are putting
forth in behalf of the temperance
cause. Though few in numbers they
nre a band of zealous workers nnd are
making their influence to be felt.
They are "the friends of all, the enemies of none," but sworn foes to the
liquor traffic, and determined to use
every legitimate menus tit sweep this
monster of iniquity from the land..
Aware of tho dangers that surround
the young they have organized a Band
of Hope society and have the names of
twenty-three enrolled as members, who
meet to receive instruction every alternate Sabbath. Their literature is scattered broad-cast among the people with
au earnest desire that it may prove as
"bread cast upon the waters, to be
Been after many days." We trust that
many others who now stand aloof from
the society may yet be induced to
unite with these ladies in high, holy
and enthusiastic labor "Fur God, and
Home, and Native'Land."

Englanh and Canada.- A London
dispatch of the 5th instant snys : The
Morning Post combats tho position
'tnkon by John Bright ou thu ■,question
of British imperial" federation: The
Post urges a closer knitting of Canada
with England, to insure thu protection
of England's increasing commerce in
China against possible encroachments
by Franco and Russia. Continuing,
thu papor says : England has m) territory in (ho Pacific region, and aspires
to none. The completion of the Canadian Pacific railroad will providoEng-
lund with a new route to Hongkong,
occupying but little overt.- murith, six-
toon 'days loss than the Suez Canal
route, Tho new routo will*otiablo
England lo lund troops in China ut
least ton clays in advance of troops
starting at tho Bamo time from Marseilles, or Russian troops from Odessa.
Iu thu event of tho Suez Canal falling
into hostile hands; Canada might send
even 20,000 or 30,000 men, which she
could easily spare in an emergency, iu
25 days. All depends upon the cultivation of goud feeling, between Canada
and England.
Mu. Giieek'h Denial.—In another
column we publish a lotter from Mr.
Greer in wliich he denies the assertions
of Mr. McTiernan contained in Tiik
Columbian of Saturday. Mr. Grcor
hns also shown us two lutters purporting to have been written by Mr, McTiernan. One of theso Jb addressed tu
the Indian Charley, and informs him
that, having sold hiB improvements to
Mr. Greer, hu must not give him any
annoyance or ho (Mr. McTiernan)
would be obliged to interfere. The
other is addressed to Mr. Samuel
Greer, and states that ho (Greer) is tho
only person who purchased the improvements of Indian Charley, and
that he (McT.) never gave any person
authority to tako possession'of Charley's premises. -It will bo noticed that
Mr, McTiernan iu those communications carefully guards ugninst conveying the ideu that tho purchase of Charley's improvements carries with it any
titlo to the land. With respect to tho
conveyance which Mr. McTiernan snys
he did not sign and which Mr. Greer
snys ho (Mr. McT.) did «ign„ those
genUemun must, settle this question
betweon themselves. They nro Certainly not both right.

Mr, Greer Protests.
KniTon CouvMiiiAN.—Will your independent journal bave the manliness to
insert fihtr following: The Columbian
joius hands with McTiernan in pronouncing Greer's evidence as falso, and the
Indian title a forgery. McTiernan cannot prove there is one word falso in tti.yr
evidence, ior dare he take the matter
hefore n court uf justice, for there he
would be exposed if ever ho attempted
to deny that he signed the Indian titlo,
nnd the forger of Indian Jim would ho
found out, I say McTiernan did sign
the Indian title. He told ine so. His
uwn signature will provo it. The public
will not believe him till ho is exposed in
court. Let McTiernan, if he has any
honor, vindicate it. We advise liim to

them for redress. To ask for it from nny
local Dominion authorities is of no use.
Mr. Homer and Senator Mclnnes know,
that only a mail-service by the trunk-
road on the south side of the Fraser in
winter, is the only practicable route, and
none is more serviceable in summer than
tho old style of conveyance by river-
boats, aud we ask them iu the name of
their abused and insulted fellow-citizens
to play the man fearlessly and faithfully
against all the mercenary and corrupt
politicians ami monopolists who may
chance to stand in the way. And now,
Mr. Editor, you may think this iB a
pretty strong kind1 of communication,
but we Sumas folks would expect to see
somothiug equally as strong if your office
were located hero instead of at New
Westminster. And further, before 1
close, we could wish for nothing better
than to see the ehief Dominion officer in
B.C. have to set up his office here; and
then, why then, you know thore would
bo the dickens to pay in no time if the
mail of that august functionary wero not
regularly received and dispatched. And
should this meet the eye of the Dominion
agent and of our parliamentary representatives and senators as it will yours,
wo hopo they will understand, with all
duo respect, that tho people of this valley think themselves to be of just the
samo flesh and blood as they are made
of, and to have rights and interests
equally as good aud inalienable as theirs
and that they will instist upon their
rights in the matter of postal facilities
being conceded or else like Trelawney's

For some time the firemen believed
the alarm waB n fraud, but finully it
became known that there was a house
burning near thb top of the hill. Tho
engine was headed in that direction
and tho hose taken up and transported
to tlto tank on Agues stroet, beyond
St. Louis school. In 15 minutes the
engine was throwing water, but the
house was tuu far gone and the efibrts
of tho company were directed towards
snving the two houses adjoining, in
which they wore successful. Tho
house was owned by Mr. Handcock,

Tlie River Malt service*
Editor Columbian.—I write in the
interest of no particular section of tlio
community, but in behalf of the whole
of iny neighbors in this settlement, to ask
what Is to be done or what ran he done
to remedy the scandalous and intolerable
neglect of our interests by the postal
authorities. Our postmaster does what
lies in his power to make the beat of tlie
most wretched and uncertain mode of
mail conveyance that was ever permitted
under a so-called responsible government.
Ho regularly despatches an Indian to the
railroad station 5 miles distant across
the Fraser, to take and bring the triails
to and from Sumas, which haB frequently
heen dono at tho risk of life during tlie
past few weeks, when the Fraser waa
either wholly or partially frozen over.
But then, what was the consequence of
an Indian's life in the eyes of our lords
and masters, who have devised this precious form of mail conveyance without
asking any one's leave! Lately, owing to
land'slidoB, which threaten to bo the
ordinary state of things along the Hue
at this season, the Indian has several
times been too late for the passing train,
or tlie train him not come at all. and the
muil hns had to be brought back, and
at the present time Ihe two mails matte up
last week are. stilt lying at our post office]
having been both taken to the railwav
station and brought back, nnd no mail
has reached us smco Saturday the'list
ult—simply because our well-paid nnd
well-fed postal authorities at Victoria
have so decreed that it must be! If there
was tho least desire on their part to Bcrvo
the public instead of serving Omlerilonk
or some other foreigner, they would lmvo
arranged that, at the railroad station
where our mall Ib supposed to bo delivered, some oue would nave been appointed
to receive and deliver the mail—mine
responsible person. But no. Au Indian
will do say they, and if he doesn't happen
to bo on time (for remember that it is a
wretched, swampy and almost trackless
wilderness thro' whieh be has to trudge),
why, so much the worse for us poor fellows, and then our mall, you know,
enjoys the rare advantage uf a ride up-
country, as far as the train gees; uv»E
there being no person at the station Co
instruct the Indian as to the movemcL-ts
of the trains—as there is no regular turntable on this irregular line—the Indian
tuny not happen to be on band upon the
return of tho train, and the mail'we
should have hnd upon the up trip, goes
baok to Fort Ham a ond, Port Moodjy or
some other place iu the lower regions!
This happened only two days ago. Now,
Mr. Editor, our citizens, who stiller in
common with all who live upon the south
side of tho Frnser where the largest settlements nre located, naturally enquire
if our parliamentary representatives at
Ottawa cannot bring about a -substitute
for this abominable and outrageous mode
of  mail communication.     Wo look to
A Squatter's Protest.
Editor Columbian.—In your issue of
Saturday last lhe article headed "Unfortunate Complications" fa both unjust
and untruthful in my own case and that
of others whom I am proud to consider
as the original and only bonnfide settlors..
Therefore, before you launched forth
against tbe squatters as a whole, you
ought to have had yourself thoroughly
posted upon all the facts and merits df
the respective claimants, that would
have enabled you to draw a distinction
line; but you nre possibly ao prejudiced
that yuu cannot do so even had you been
furnished with every particular of our
respective claims. Such au article has,,
if allowed to go unchallenged, a great
tendency to mislead and prejudice the
minds of the public againat our rights;,
therefore in justice to myself, I wish to
correct your misrepresentations. With
your opening remarks I wilt make little
comment. If, however, eo much outside capital is lying idle awaiting investment, whose fault is it; oura or the government's f Let public opinion decide
that question. Hud our rights been recognized as they in justice should, aU
tho difficulty that has arisen would never
have happened in regard to the railway
question. You state that the object of
taking up the land was its close proximity
to the C. P. R., and specially valuable
on that account. What you would call
close proximity I am at a loss to understand, for uoue of the land in question
comes within twelve miles of the line of
railway or terminus; a map of the district will clearly, show that to. be the
fact. Again, you .state that it was not
taken up for agricultural purposes. It
Ib quite evident you are perfectly ignorant of the subject upon which you write,
for the sworn evidence before the select
committee clearly contradicts it, as evidence .was given by some of the best
farmers iu British Columbia to the effect
that the land in question is equal in
richness as agricultural land to any in
townships 10, IS ami Iti, upon which
during the past year some three hundred
settlers have located. You seem also to
be delving in darkness on squatters'
combinations and rings. There is neither the one nor the other that I am awaro
of.   Only, when the. Hastings Mill Com-
finny served ub with writs of ejectment
or trespass, I called upon two of my
true and uioneycd friends, explained my
position to them, they told me to hold
possession, stand the suit, and they
would see me through even if tho case
went before the privy council of Kngland.
The milt company finding we had obtained aid sufficient to - stand them olf
allowed their action to fall through and
handed the lands over to a govemment
monopoly.
You are not content with dragging us
through the dirt, but you must attempt
to bedaub certain members of the legislature who havo been manly and independent enough to express their views
aud sympathies with ue. You must*
have a fling at them as being bought
over, button hole, aud all the rest of
such rubbish. Have you any proof of
such a thing, either directly or indirectly ? Until you have I would advise you
to be silent. Remember, those who live
in glass houses should nover be the first
to throw stones. You are preaching up
a new doctrine now as to the procedure
that ought to Imve beeu taken, namely,
a court of justice to lmvo our case decided. That is where it ought to be decided
and if we do not obtain justice from the
government, which I have faint hopes of
doing, I may inform you that in a court
of justice we will seek redress and I have
every confidence that tliere we will obtain it without either fear or favor.
In conclusion, the action upon the
part of the govornment has opened the
eyes of tlie thousands of settlers iu this
district who have settled upon vacant
lands on the snmo conditions and trusting to the pledge given by tho government. Now they seo tho danger thoy
run of being kicked out if the govern*
ment reqnire the lands for any of their
pet purposes. What more proof du we
require than the statement made by the
provincial secretary to somo of our
friends who were pleading our cause before that gentleman, The question was
put to bim; "Would you turn ofl'the
settlers from lauds in other parts uf the
dUUnit)" Tlie answer was: "Certainly;
yes, if the lands became of enhanced
value." Trusting, these facta will show
you and tlie pnbliu the true state in
whieh we stand, I am, sir, yours respectfully, WlLUASI MAUKIE,
False Creek, Feb. 7, 1SW.
medical skill that the' experience of the
past can bring to theu* aid; all tho Christian love, Christiou council and prayer
that good people can hear in their behalf, it Is the insane. I ain more than
pleased—and 1 havo reason to beliovo
that many others would gladly say so,
too—with your idea of f>0 acres of land
being enclosed for tbe production of vegetables, and, I would add, pleasure
grounds, too. The combination of the
useful and beautiful cannot tie too strongly urged in this cose. The bodily exercise ef suoh patients as are enabled to
engage in it, if wisely and kindly directed, will undoubtedly have a general, rem
edial tendency, und iu some cases a very
important one, physically, mentally and
morally- Pleasing, interesting and varied mental exercise aro very important
indeed. It is so to those persons whose
minds aro in a healthy condition; how
unspeakably more so to those whoso
minds are in a diseased state. To the
more physical invalid, how cheering is a
smiling face, a sympathetic tone of voico
or a small boquet of variegated flowers.
I know by experience that they are to
the mind of the invalid what pure water
is to the fever-parched lips. Such u visit
or present often beconesaneiv starting
poiut in the struggle for physical health.
How magically such an occurrence acts
on the poor creature whose reason is unbalanced—it seems for a moment to sen
sibly lift him up to a higher place, and
touch the innermost soul with a composing and soothing influence. The thought
that some one luves him gives birth to
confidence and hope, and a pleasing smile
of gratitude as the response, Who that
has ouce witnessed uuch a scene can forget the loving* thankfulness it indicated.
These are facts that cannot be gaineayed,
aud they tench us an important lesson
with respect to the treatment of the in-
same. How often has the singing of a
Christian hymn and the sweet toned rehearsal of the Sanioro invitations-calmed
the living maniac when all other means
havnlled? What does this teaoh ? It
teacfei this—that alt who have ttie care
of the insane should be devoted, intelli
goat Christians, and, above all, should
the resident physicinnbe so in the highest degree. Should he possess all other
qualifications and tack this one he is not
half qualified for the post, I think along
with y it that the asylum should exhibit
home-lite. It should be a Christiam home
in the highest and purest sense, ruled by
wisdom, governed by firmness,permeated
by kindness,- and ttie whole pervaded by
Christian love. It should be a life-like
home and not a prison. My idea of the
religious services adapted for such an in-
stitatitin is this: They should be very
wisely and calmly conducted) the address
should not extend over fifteen minutes,
and he simple; music and singing introduced'at short intervals.; the inmates encouraged to ask a few questions on the
address, but only o ie question by the
same person during the service. Let
everything be short, pleasing and loving,
No material departure ahould be allowed
without the approval of the resident phy-
■iiig all the necessary qualifications above named.
sician possessing a
I thtuk the very best behaved should
be allowed as a reward to go out ou invitation addressed to the physicion to religious service or to the domestic tea-table
under the guardianship of a wise, good
and responsible citizen who may wish to
lend a helping hand towards the restoration of such unfortunate creatures. It
would, I have no doubt, bave a very beneficial eflect,.and would, in some cases,
if not in many, be looked forward to
with' much interest, aud recalled with
much pleasure. It would be regarded
muoh as tho weary traveller regards an
oasis in the desert. Should opportunity
offer, I may present a few thoughts on
tho out-door social and medical treatment
required by such inmates. Permit me to

with death if they persist in giving damaging testimony against the prisoner.
London, Feb, Ifl.—Some excitement
was created to-day, especially in commercial and financial circles, by the receipt
of dispatches from Berlin, aunumicing
that the Russlau government hnvo ordered two thousand Krupp guns for the purpose of strengthening its position in Central Asin, the guns to be of the largest
pattern. They are evidently intended

the testimony of witnesses for the people.
When asked by a witness whom ahe had
shot, ahe said,"O'Donovan Rosea." Witness asked why,and was told by prisoner
that Bhe had ahot at Kossa because she
wanted to kilt him, Tho reason for such
desire was that Rossa is an enemy to my
country. The justice consented to fix
bail at $3,000 for the prisoner's appearance before tho grand jury.

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and 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, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meot
tho requirements ot the company, which
had been cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Compnny in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for tlieir business hns lieen rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspe-'t, and purchaso proves
beyond question that tho public approve
tho provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to teat performances on
first-class instruments made by loading
city and country musicians.
Right well do the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all groat institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years age, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties uunc-
quaiuted with tho business. About ten
yenrs goJobn Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department: aud 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 as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
f tuition among Canadian undertakings,
t turns out about 200 organs and 50
pianos per month. These are produced
by 250 hands, who receive in wages
about 915,000 per month. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches In London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion arc fair examples of tho Company's workmanship. An upright piano
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 tho Bide
wall of a room, und is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a hands tne appearance, ami is
suited for occupying a prominent position iu drawing or music room. These
two instruments nro of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch Ib
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful, lu musical quality and appearance they ure equal to the bost
American pianos.
The organs made by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They nre
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs ure shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present ut the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but iB expected here nt the
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which lias
boon placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. The organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
pnrlor favorite. The ensej show wonderful variety. Many of theso aro of
rare beauty and skilful workmanship,
The enso which secured for tho Company
a prize nt the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs are chnate in 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; while visitors
can themselves judge ns to the beauty
and style of the cases.

"I should like to do it for you,"said
Roland,with a look that Baid still more;
for even stock-bruiting will do ns a vehicle for flirtation. "I should liko to
buy you a quantity of Circassians, for
instance, exactly at tho right moment,
neither too soon nor too late, and sell
thein next dny, pm-haps,when the market had turned, and hand you ovor a
thousand pounds or two, which you
should have mado without, us 1 said,
spending a penny. That would mako
the profession romantic, poetic, if nno
could conduct such operations for you.
Probably I shall put that money into
the pocket of some bilious city person
who does not want it, instead of into
your fair bauds."
"Which do. \ don't know if thoy
aro fair hands, but thoy want it, certainly. A thouaand or two ! Enough
to mako people comfortable for lifo.
And what nro Circassians?" Hoster
asked,
"They aro Btock. You must acoepfc
certain words ns symbols, or we ahull
nevor mako it clear; nnd my business is
to watch the market for you -to catch
tho moment when the tide is turning.
Thero is a great deal of excitement in
il."
"And is that how Edward loses his
head'("
Sho spoko in a low tono, nnd Itoland
stopped suddenly iu what he was about
to say, and turned upon her with real
Burpriso. Aftor this ho put on au nir
of mock mortification—mock, yet not
without a mortification of the true,
"Is it for this," ho said,"that I have
been devising dolicato operations for
you, and explaining all my mysteries,
to find you, ut tho ond, not in the least
in my work or in your possiblo fortune
but considering everything iu the
light of Edward Vernon? Acknowledge
that this is hard upon me,"
"I was thinking, only," said Hoster,
with, again, that sudden flash of color,
"of what you said, that Edwnrd lost
his head. It is not much wonder, if
what you sny can be, He would like
to be rich- he would like to be free.
He would prefer to get a fortune of
hia own, especially if it cau bo done
that way, rather than to wait for years
and years, till ho has made money, or
till Cathorine dies. That is generous,
you know. He does not want to wAit
till sho dies, as if ho grudged her life.
Ic would be terrible for her to think
that he did uot wish her to livo ns long
as sho could. But, at tho snmo time,
he wants, and so do we all, to bo freo."
"I am so much obliged tu you for
explaining Edward Vernon's motives,"
said Itoland, much piqued. It wns un
experience he was not familiar with,
to have himself forgotten nud his rival
expounded to him. His rival! was he
his rival? In tho sting of this suddtm
revelation of preference, Roland all
but vowed that he would enter the lists
iii earnest, and chase this Edward, this
country fellow, whom' she thought so
much of, from the field.
Hestor was confused, too, when her
investigation into her cousin's mind
was thus received. It was trno enough
—it was the problem which had interested her in the first place; not directly
Edward in person, who was the subject
of it. She had tried to explain his position to herself, Now that her interest
waa found out, uud she discovered it to
bo an, offausu to her companion, Bhe
threw herself back instinctively, un a
less nlarmiiig question.
"I think a great deal about Catherine, Bho said.
"About Catherine—Cousin Catherine—whom I thought you disliked
with all your heart ?"
"You may he astonished, but it is
true I think u groat deal ahout her.
I think of her, after being kind to
everybody ; not loving them, which
takes the grace out of it, but yet kind
—after being so kind, to bo left alone,
with nobody caring for her, and perhaps the one she lovoa best expecting
when she will die. No," said Hester.
"I am glad Edward loses liis head; that
is what he is thinking of. Not to wait,
or feel as if he would liko by an hour,
to shorten her lifo ; but only for himself, like a man, to get freo, I am
. very glad of it," sho added, hotly, willi
another overwhelming blush, "for
Catherine's sake."
Roland waa bewildered, and doubtful what to think, for truth was so
strong iu Hester that it was hard to believe she was sheltering heraelf behind
a fiction, But he was vory much mortified, too.
"I don't think," he snid, plaintively,
"that I want to talk either of Cousin
Catherine or of Mr. Edward, whom
she thinks a .-rent deal moro of than he
deserves, na, perhaps, others do, too."
"And we have come on so fast and
forgotten Emmn," cried Hester, witli it
senso of guilt. "Wo ought to go back
and meet hor. She has been a long
time getting that umbrella, Don't
you think you had bettor leave her
with Mrs. Morgan a littlo longer, sinco
she likes to be hero ?"
"I shall not disturb her, if—if yuu
wish her to slay ;'! he meant to aay "if
site wishes to stay," hut changed hia
phrase nnd gavo it Iho emphasis, with
it look of dovotion. "If I thought ymi
had any regard for my poor littlo sis-
tor, how glad it would make ino ! It
would do her so much good. It would
alter hor wny of looking at things."
"Oh, you must not think," cried
Heater—meaning, like him, to aay one
thing but still saying another—"that
Emma ts likely to bo influenced by mtf,
She knows what ahe think.* much better than 1 do. Mr. Ashton, would it
not turn oiiu'b head, and mako one unlit for one's other business, if one was
trying to umko money in that way i"
"Perhaps," ttolund said.
"Has it not that effect upon you ?"
"But it is my business. I don't net
for myself, I am tempted, sometimes,
to do things I ought not to do, and
sometimes I fall. Evon you, if ymi
. were tempted, would sometimes fall.
You would dabble in Circassians ; yuu
would find a new company too much
for your virtue ; shares going to day
for noxt to nothing, but sure to bo at
o premium nuxt week, if tho bubble
doesn't burst in the moan time."
"And does it always happen that tho
bubbles burst ?'*
"Oh, not alwaya; but nfter yuu have
done with thom you don't care what
becomes of them. I nover thought I
should havu had you for half an hour
. all to myself, and talked of business all
the whole time. It is incrediblo ; und
there is that little Emmn running this
way as if she thought wo woro inconsolable for the loss of her. I wanted
to tell you how much I havu been
thinking uf all our walks sinco I havo
beeu in my little house alono. Bid
you never think of ooming to London I
The very feeling of being in a placo so
full of lifo and notion aud thinking
makes your veins thrill, I think you
would like to bo thore. Thoro is so
muoh going on, And then I might
have the hope of seeing you sometimes, That is ono for you and two
for myself."
"Wo could nol, afford it," aaid Hester, coloring again. "I think I Bhould
liko it. I am uot sure. To look on
and bco everybody doing u, great deal
would bo intolerable, if one had nothing to do." 1
""What are you talking of ?' criod
Emma, coming up breathless "1 did
not Iind that umbrella, for I couldn't.
I went up nnd down into every room
iu the house, nnd thon I found I had
left it in the drawing-room, Hostor, and
your mamma looked up whon I went
in aud said, 'Back already V I think
shu must havo beeu dozing, for wo
could not possibly have gono to Redborough and back in this time, could
wo, Roland ? You two looked so comfortable by yourselves, I had half a
mind not to como at all, for you know
two's company but threo'e none. I
thought you didn't know my numbor,
and Roland would nover havo had tho
thought to bring mo my gloves. But
don't bo afraid, I daresay I shall pick
up some one on tho way.
Thoy walked into tho town after this
and bought Emma's glovos. Heater
could uot bo tempted into a similar
purchaso, nor could alio bo persuaded
to go into tho MerridewV. Aud she
resisted ull Roland's attetnps to make
himself agreeable, even aftor Emma
encountered young Reginald Merridew, who was glad enough to holp her
to buy her gloves, Though it was not
many mouths sinco aho had soen hiin,
Hester found that Bhe had outgrown
Roland. His eyes were very fine, hut
they did hot affect her any more. He
brought no light with him into the
problems of life, but only another difficulty, which it wns more hard to solve.
A sort of instinctive consciousness that
something wus going to happen seemed
in the air about hor. All was atill, and
everything going on in its calm,habitu-
nl way. There were not even any
hoavinga aud groanings, liko those that
warn tlio surrounding country before a
volcano bursts forth with all its fury.
Nevertheless this girl,who hnd been so
long a spectator,'pushed aside from tho
action about her, but, with 'the keen
sight of injured prido and wounded
feoliug, seeing the secret thread that
ran through everything, felt premonitions, sho could not tell how, in the
heated air, and through tho domestic
calm.

Roland's. Christmas to his friends
was not tho holiday it appeared. His
engagements with them had beon many
during this interval, nnd attended both
by loss and gain. But the gain had
outbalanced tho loss, and though thoro
had boon many vicissitudes and a groat
many email crises, the Christmas balance had shown tolerably well, and
every une was pleased. Edward's private ventures, which ho had not con
suited any one about, but in which the
money of tho bank had been more or
less involved, had followed the same
i-ourse, He had a larger sum standing
to his individual credit than hefore,
and, so far aa any one knew, had risked
nothing but what he had a right to
risk, though, in reality his transactions
hnd gone much further than any one
was awaro of, evun Ashton; for he had
felt the restraints of Roland's caution
and had already established, though to
a limited extent, dealings with other
agents of a holder disposition. And,
indeed, his mind had gone furl her thnn
his practice, and had reached a point of
excitement at which tho boundaries of
right and wrong became so indistinct
ns to exert little if auy control over
tho conscience ur the imagination.
Through his other channels of information he had heard uf a speculation even
greater than he had yet ventured upon,
in which tho possible gain would be immense, but the risk proportionate—nl*
most proportionate—though the probabilities were so entirely m favor of
success that a sanguine eye could fix
itself upon them with more justification than is usual. It was so vast that,
oven to Edward, who had been playing
with lire for months back, the suggestion took away his breath, and he took
what was, in reality, tho wiau step uf.
consulting Ashton. It was wiso, had
lie intended seriously to bo guided by
Ashton; but it was foolish as it happened, seeing that a day or two's contemplation' of tho matter wrought in
him a determination tu risk it,whether
Ashton approved or nut. And Roland
did nut approve. -He came down at
the utmost speed uf tho express to atop
any further mischief if ho could. He
liad . himself alwaya kept within tho
bounds of legitimate business, sometimes, indeed, just skirting tho edge,
but never committing himself, or risking liis credit deeply; and ho hud never
forgotten the solemn adjuration addressed to hiin by hoth tho old people
at tho Vernonry. If Catherine Vernon
or hor representatives camo to harm it
should not be, he had determined, by
his moans. So he had answered Edward's nppeal in person ; and, instead
of communicating with him unly, had
spoken of tho matter to Harry, supposing him to he in all Edward's se-
crets,a thing which disturbed Edward's
composure greatly. It wns hia own
fault, ho felt, for so distrusting hia own
judgment; but he durat not betray his
displeasure, and bo tho propositi which
he had meant to keep to himself, had
to be discussed openly betwoen the
partners. Hnrry, as may be supposed,
being pasaive and unambitioiH, opposed it with ull his might. Roland hnd
been shut up with them in Edward's
roojojit the bank for hours tn the
morning, aud the discussion had run
high. Ho had beeu a kind of moderator between them, finding Harry's ro-
Histnnco tn some extent unnecessary,
hut, on thu wholo, feeling more sympathy with him than with tho othor.
"It isn't ourselves unly wo have to
consider,''Hnrry said; and he repeated this, perhaps, too often; often
enough tu eivo his opponent a Bort of
right tu any tliat thia waa a truism, and
that they had heard it beforo.
"A thing doea not become moro truo
for being repeated," Edward suid.
"But it doos not become leas truo,"
aaid Roland; "and I think so far that
Harry is right. With all your responsibilities you ought to go more softly
than the men who riak nothing that is
nut their own. You aro in something
nf the samo position as trustees, and
yuu know how thoy are tied up."
"This is a statement which hardly
cornea woll frum yuu," snid Edward,
"who Imve beon our adviser aU along,
and nailed very noar the wind on some
occasions,"
"I have novor advised you to a thing
I did not think safe," snid Roland, respectfully.
Edward was so onger and so confident nf Ids superiority over his cousin,
that it wna difficult to keep the suspicion of a sneer out of hia voice iti this
discussion, though for Roland Ashton,
whatever hia other sentiments might
bu, he, nt loast, had no feelings of contempt.
"And there's Aunt Catherine," said
Hurry.. "Of course, a great part of
tho money is hors. Her hair would
stand on end if ahe even knew we wero
discussing auch a question."
