current Events and Opinions.
It is to be remembered thnt the
present uprising in the North-west
wns not inspired by the Indians,
over whom Mr. Dewdney has control, but by men disgusted witli the
general administration of the Ottn
wa governmnet, and more particularly with respect to their hinds.
With tlie latter the governor lias
nothing to do, and it is therefore
right that the responsibility should
be properly distributed.— Winnipeg.

Tho drink bill of tho United
Kingdom for 1884 is formidable beyond expression. The beer section
of it is the most formidable of nll,
amounting to §372,418,100. Tlie
total mounts up to more than six
hundred millions of dollars ! This
frightful amount is about four millions and a quarter dollars above
that of 1883. Of all this mighty
sum at least one hundred and fifty,
if not two hundred millions, came
from the working, struggling, starving classes. How can there be anything but starvation, crime and
misery when such sums are worse
than thrown away on strong drink 1
—Toronto Globe,
There is uo doubt thnt, roughly
speaking, one half of the whole merchant fleet of tho world sails under
the British flag. This we have repeatedly pointed out; but in view
of tho prevailing war rumors it is
interesting to refer to it again. The
whole merchant fleet of the world
aggregates about 06,000 vessels of
about 23,000,000 tonimgo. Now of
tliis tliere belong to Creat Britain
22,500 vessels of 11,200,000 tons;
to the United States 0,600 vessels
of 2,700,000 tons; to Norway 4,200
vessels of 1,500,000 tons; to Germany 3,000 vessels of 1,400,000
tons; to France 2,900 vessels of
1,100,000 tons; to Italy 3,200 vessols of 1,000,000 tons; and to Russia 2,300 vessels of G00,000 tons.
Then taking steamships alone the
British preponderance is still greater. The whole steam vessels of the
world number about 7,764 with a
tonnage of 9,232,000 tons. Of this
Great Britain lias 4,619 vessels of
.5,919,000 tons? France 459 vessels
of 667,000 tons; United States 422
vessels of 601,000 tons; Germany
420 vessels of 476,000 tons; Spain
282 vessels of 305,000 tons ; Italy
135 vessels of 106,000 tons; find
Russia 194 vessels of 149,000 t.ons.
Thus the British Hag floats from
nearly two-thirds of nll tho ocean
steamers; and tho British stenm
tonnage is fully ton times that of her
nearest rival France, and no less
than forty times more than that of
Russia. In 1860 two-thirds of the
foreign trade of this country was
carried in American vessels, while
last year fully five-sixths of it was
carried in foreign vessels—the ono
half being carried by British vessels,
one-third by other foreign vessels,
and only one-sixth by American vessels.—Scottish A merkan.

does in the free states of western
Europe, is the unseen spring which
both retains them submissive under
the standards of their chief, and impels their accumulating force in
ceaseless advance over all adjoining
states. The energies of the peoplo,
great as tho territory they inhabit,
are never wasted in internal disputes ; domestic grievances, how
great soever, are overlooked in the
thirst for foreign aggrandizement;
in the conquest of the world the
people hope to find a compensation
for all the evils of their internal administration. * * * Every Russian
is inspired with a conviction that
his country is one dny to conquer
the world, and the universal belief
in this result is one of the, chief
causes of tbe rapid strides which
Russia of late years has made towards its realization"*"*,* The
rudest nomad of tlio steppes pants
for the period when a second Tiniour
is to open the gates of Derbend, and
let loose upon southern Asia the
long-pent-up forces of its northern
wilds." In connection with these
common beliefs in the future greatness of Russia, it is interesting to
notice Gibbon's statement that, centuries ago, the belief was widespread
that a statue was buried iu Constantinople, bearing the prophecy that
Russia would one day be mistress
of that city. That the Turkish
capital has not loug sinco passed
under the control of the Ozar is
owing neither to tho feebleness of
the Russian armies nor to the power of Turkey,-*'. F. Bulletin.

STEVENSON, M. D.
Perhaps uo diplomatic war in
modern times hus been watched
with more anxiety and interest than
that now iu progress between England and Russia. Bath powers
have immense strength, and each
would provo a worthy antagonist
for the other. Each has under its
control nn immense proportion of
the world's area, and holds iu its
charge the destiny of hundreds of
millions of the world's population.
Each has peculiar advantages to
offset its disadvantages, so that in
case of actual war thoy would stand
on very nearly equal terms. Russia
is poor, while England is rich; but
if England is inexhaustible in riches, Russia is inexhaustible in soldiers. Jf England has the most
powerful navy in tho world, Russia
has few places to bo protected from
attack by sea. If elements of England's strength an. found in every
part of tho world, Russia finds hers
consolidated at home. If England
has extended her conquests over tho
globe, Russia believes that sho is
one day to conquer the world.
With regard to this great northern
power, which is yearly becoming
moro prominent and more important
in the world's history, it will at
this time bo interesting to know
what a distinguished Englishman
has written. Concerning the character of the Russian people, Alison
says: "Formidable as the power of
Russia is, from the boundless extent
of its territory, and tho great and
rapidly-increasing number of its
subjects, it is stilt more so from the
military spirit and docile disposition
by which they are distinguished.
The prevailing passion of the nation
is the love of conquest, and this ardent desire wliich burns as fiercely
in them as   Democratic ambition
War Notes
ECHOES FROM BRITISH NEWSPAPERS.
London, April 25;—Tp-night Iho
situation appears to be very serious.
It looks as if Russia desiros war und
as if England will be compelled to
accept a challenge tu fight. Tho co'tri-
mou poople of England, that is, those
whu read or gossip at the "clubs" and
know what is going on, seem In bolieve
there will bu war; but they are not
enthusiastic abuut it. Gladstone, more
than any premier England evor had,
is a development of the British populate. Hu don't boliove iu war unless
it ia absolutely necessary. He does
not. think a diplomatic insult, fur instance, or a mere brush against prestige is sufficient cause for wur. His
enemies oven go so far as to suy that
Gladstone would have allowed the
Smidan to slip away rather than fight
for it but for Gordon, and that lie
does not consider tho retention of
India .worth tho cost of u war with
Russia. The English people beliovo
lie values a soldier's life higher than
does auy other statesman in Europe.
It is this characteristic of the British
premier, coupled with his supreme reti-
oimoe during the past fow days, which
makes thoughtful men boliove that war
is imminent, lt is everywhere taken
for granted that Russia's expected reply to England's recent remoiistrauco
concerning Gen. ivmiariifPi account of
his conduct at I'enjdeh will bo at least
evasive, It is even -thought the Czar
will oiuleavoi1 tii justify KomarofFs
action and establish its rectitude from
the very text ot Sir Peter Lumsden's
account of the conduct of tho Afghans,
Thu attitude of money in Europo today is one of douht nnd uncertainty
concerning the Anglo-Russian situation.
The financial markets may be described
as stagnant. Thero seems to be au
inability on the part of oven tho greatest financiers to divine the exact intention of England. Hence thore are nc
large market operations iu progress oi
even in coutomplation so far aa known.
Capitalists are at preseut lending thoir
money from day to day. They got
good terms on these call loans and
seem afraid to loud for longer periods.
The holders of Russian securities both
in England and iu Germany are alow
to pint with tlieir investments. It
may be tho small investors aro imi tat
iug tho largo holders who they suppose are "on the inside" ami keop
what they have ou aome supposed
superior information. Possibly, also,
the steadiness maintained by Russian
stocks in the markets is mainly duo to
too rapid declines. Certainly Russian
securities havo boen steadier than tho
seriousness ef the situation has apparently warranted.
London, Apr. 25.—Tlio Spectator
aays tho very persistency with whieh
the Russian papers aro urging the seizure of Herat is an evidence that they
liavo beeu inspired for tho purpose uf
preparing tho Russian public mind for
tho event. Tho Spectator gooslip far
ns to aay that it believes the seizure of
Herat has already heen ordered by tho
Czar aud delarea that British troops
will bu powerlesH to prevent its capture. Nearly all tho London newspapers havu perfected nrraugomonts
for securing by apecial telegrams news
from the scene of hostilities in the
event of war between Kngland and
Russia. The 'times nnd Standard are
tho only papers which havo arranged
to secure exclusive telegrams. Most
cf the other metropolitan papers have
gone into a syndicate with provincial
papers. Gen. KalkofF, iu the Moscow
Gazelle, 1ms attractod attention by a
skillful discussion which waa broached
at thu time of thu meeting of tho emperors at Skimovio about the cession
of that portion of Russian-Poland
bounded on the east by Vistula rivor
and including tho capital of Warsaw
tu Germany. The revival of this idea
in a papor so official as that of tlio
Moscow Gazette is looked upon as a
strong hid for German support on the
Afghan question. In aome quarters it
ii thought tho discussion is opened under a secret und ers I audi tig with Prince
Bismarck tbat the price of the Russian
cession of that part of Poland tu Our-
many ia already agreed upon, and that
it is to he no less than Germany's nc-
tivo aid iu suppressing any Polish revolt which inayoccitr agaimittho Czar's
authority if Russia noes to war with
England, ami in ease of necessity,'active friendship as against the falter
power.

Wednesday Slorulng, April .11, IB85.
From Mr. Van Home's letter to
the mayor we infer tlmt tlie Conl
Harbor extension of tho C.P. U. wil!
probably be built along the shore of
Burrard Inlet. Tf it was intended
to bring the main line via tliis city
or Burnaby Lake, tbo New Westminster branch would not be loeatcd
ou the route already surveyed,,which
strikes the C.P. ll. near the Ooquit-
lain bridge, [t was hoped that one
of these routes would lie adopted,
for we are persuaded that the nearer
tho main line can be brought to this
eiiy the better will the interests of
the city be served. If by increasing
the. city bonus we could induce the
syndicate to bring the main line
through this city, it would be advisable for us to do so.
We are told that a petition is
being circulated and very generally
signed on the south side of the river
protesting against the proposed closing of the telegraph offices between
this city and Yale. The people are
very much exercised over this matter, and they have, unquestionably,
a real grievance. According to the
terms upon which this province
entered tlie confederacy the existing
telegraph lines were to be maintained by the federal authorities, aud
we do not see how these oflices can
now be closed without a distinct
violation of the terms. The federal
government has on several occasions
shown a disposition to break faith
with this province, but a time may
come when we shall resent these
things by slipping out of the confederacy which cau only hold us by
preserving the agreement intact.
The Railway Lauds.
It is uow said that tliere is likely
to be a serious delay with the surveying parties appointed tu survey
the Dominion lauds on the mainland. It is not expected that any
more work will be done iu this direction for nearly a montli, aud perhaps there will be none this season.
The cause of this delay is uot easy
to iind, but the fact is exceedingly
embarrassing. There are a great
many persons in tbis district whose
sole title to the lands they occupy
is the circumstance that they have
squatted upon it, relying upon the
good faith of the Dominion government's promise that the land would
be secured to all bona tide settlers
or squatters at 81 an acre. Many
of these people have been making
improvements, and are most anxious
still further to improve their holdings ; but where the land has not
been surveyed, and the stakes may
have to be shifted considerable distances, a man does not care to improve what may ultimately happen
to be the property of some one olse.
The people of this province were led
to believe that these lands would be
surveyed and opened to purchase or
pre-emption long ago. The settlers
in many cases are ready to pay for
the lands as soon as they have been
defined and a title made out, and
there it a very great deal of dissatisfaction because the work of surveying proceeds so slowly. Whatever may be the reason of the delay,
we hope our representatives at Ottawa will vigorously demand the
utmost despatch in a matter which
so seriously allects the interests of
this province.
Unsure Unities.
Tlie human mind naturally clings
to the notions wliich are lirst imprinted upon it. Theso notions are
often received at a period when the
We are all too apt to run into bigotry.     We tako up a notion and
pursue it beyond  all  reason:    we
grasp at a vision, convert it into a
principle, piously adopt it tis a part
of our creed, and  then fling it at
those  who differ from us as something  that  it  would  be heresy to
reject.     Henco arise religious sects,
political  parties, and   divisions  in
every great work of social reform.
Tt  would be strange indeed if the
temperance reform   should   escape
from the embarrassment of  these
conflicting opinions.     If all were
agreed, there would be no place for
discussion.    But all are uot agreed,
iim! the world is filled with opinions
respecting the best method of restraining or suppressing   a  traffic
which all agree to be the cause of
widespread evil.    We believe that
among earnest temperance workers
it  is generally conceded that absolute prohibition is the only consistent and effectual cure.    But we are
told that prohibition interferes with
the liberties of those who drink in
moderation; that a man who sells
whiskey honestly and conscientiously  has rights whicli the law and
public opinion must protect;  and
that restrictions  upon   our eating
and drinking are contrary  to  the
spirit and intent of the constitution.
This is the kind of specious plead
ing which  finds favor among persons  who iptircely  ever look for a
motive of action higher than self-
iiululgenee or self-interest, but it is
nevertheless used sometimes by well-
meaning   people   who have   never
stopped  to consider the fallacy involved,     No one will dispute the
statement that the liquor traffic is
a great evil.     It is plainly recognised as such  by the laws of our
land.   No other branch of trade is
hedged about with such restrictions.
The business is regurded as dangerous, and as something against the
unrestricted use of which the public
must be protected.     Tliis fact of
itself implies u surrender of personal   "liberties" in   the sense  in
which that term is used liy the opponents of  prohibition.     "I  shall
permit   uo   man  to dictate to me
whether I shall take a glass of beer
or not," they say.     But the existing laws, agapist which no voice is
lifted, dictate that there are many
times and places when a man may
not take a glass of beer.      The authority  which  is competent to forbid   the drinking of   liquor upon
certain occasions is competent, witli
the consent of tho peoplo, to forbid
it always.    In both eases individual
liberties (so-called) must fall before
the  will of the people  which  demands the suppression of a groat
evil.    Every person is familiar with
the evil results of   tho traffic, but
can any  person mention any great
evil that  would  come  from  total
prohibition!     If men do  not care
for   these   beverages  they may be
removed without inflicting personal
suffering;   but if  they do care for
them, in that very fact lies a great
danger against which the friends of
prohibition seek to guard.   There
some men animated by higher
motives than personal gratification
gain.    They acknowledge themselves to be tlieir brother's keeper,
and act upon the broad philanthropic sentiment which prompted St.
Paul's declaration:   "If moat make
my brother to offend, then I will eat
no meat while the world standeth."
Many of these men will be found in
the front rank  of  those who aro
pushing forward the temperance reform.   They may err sometimes in
judgment and make mistakes in tlie
methods of accomplishing a desirable end; but they are conscientious
and disinterested and philanthropic.
Let  it not be declared hastily that
the men who preach prohibition are
deceived and deluded by prejudicial
notions.    Let the principles upon
which  they act  be  first tested by
the ordinary measures of othics, and
if they stand the test let them become the principles of  the people

Apostolic Succession.
Editor Columnar,—Young as I am,
I cannot allow tho erroneous statement
of Mr. Watson in your Saturday's issue
—that it cannot bo proved that tlie English church has an apostolic mini-try—
to pass unuotlced. For unprejudiced
peoplo who ham candidly considered the
subject, I feel no argument is necessary,
but for the benefit of tliose who may
not have the means of investigating the
question, I would say that the validity
of the episcopal succession iu the Knglish church can lie as conclusively proved
as any well authenticated event in history. It is the iucontcstible evidence of
the truth of this fact that causes many
earnest enquirers after truth among the
denominations around us, year by year
to seek the fold of the Knglish church.
Not only cau the name of each bishop,
with the dato of his consecration, be
given from St. Augustina in A. I). 51)1},
who received consecration from a bishop
of the Galilean church whieh was planted by Potheuius in the second century,
down to to-day; but every one versed in
ecclesiastical history knows there were
bishops in Britain both hefore and after
the Saxon conquest, How ready St.
Augustine was to acknowledge tliose he
found on his arrival and anxious to have
their co-operation we also know.
Truth, because scoffed at, is not lessened iu value. The mere cry of "priestly
pride and arrogance," raised by Mr.
Watson will not doter well informed and
sincere thinkers from receiving a truth
taught hi Holy Scripture by the fathers
of tlie church nud universally acknowledged for centuries. He muy jeer at
the belief in a recorded lineal descent of
a ministry from the apostles, but young
ns I am I know that the challenge of the
learned Hooper iu 1694 to those who
discarded episcopal government, "We require you lo Hnd but one church.npon, the
face of the, whole earth that huth been ordered by your discipline, or lhat hath not
lieen ordered by episcopal regimen, since
the lime thai the blessed apostles were here
conversant" has never yet been answered.
If for the first 1500 years uo church can
be shown without episcopal government,
then what authority had any at tho end
of that time to form a ministry of their
own, setting aside tliat derived in uninterrupted succession from the apostles'!
The nag's head story ahout archbishop
Parker has long since, ou account of its
falseness, ceased to be spoken of by scholars. Educated men in the Kotnan
church would not risk their'reputation
by advancing it. The facts are aa foi-'
lows: Matthew Parker was elected to ths
see of Canterbury in tho church of St.
Mary-C-bow, London, Dec. 1), 1550. On
the 17th of December he was consecrated
archbishop of Canterbury in the chapel
at Lambeth by the bishops of Hereford,
Chichester, Exeter, and the Ltiffi-agan
bishop et Bedford. Tho ceremony was
performed according to the or.linatioit
service of Edward VI. All things were
rightly and canonically performed as may
be seen iu tho register at Canterbury,
and in the MSS. in Corpiia Christi College, Cambridge,
The Wet Blanket.1
Editor Columbian.—In reading last
issue of the Mainland Guardian I could
not "nelp^coming to the conclusion that
the writer of the editorial wrote, not
with the purpose of encouraging, but
maligning, the residents of this city.
Although somo advocated the sale of
city squares, it was not and ia not for
the purpose, as lie says, of helping speculators to build a terminus for a railway
to a place people are pleased to call Vancouver, Now, sir, this is an uiitrutli
that could come only from the pen of a
writer with Port Moody on the brain.
It is a well known fact that the proceeds
of the. sale of squares were for the purpose, of connecting this city with the
main line, neither terminus being mentioned. Sir, 1 am afraid the broader
views aud greater intelligence have only
placed the writer in aposition.no good
man -wonld envy—to say the unexceptionable moral character of a man should
be a stumbling block iu the way of progress ' anil enterprise. We want no better evidence than the two characters
placed before us. The Mainland Guardian would make ua believe the "wet
blanket," as lie terms it, is caused by the
honest;man. putting his means in improvements and not upending it in rioting and drunkenness, Our city is certainly going through a trying time,, but
what would our state be if only such as
tho M. G. approves would govern us?
My experience leads me to believe drink
aud immorality make the young prematurely old, but the Maiuluiuljyuardiau
condemns the young of our city aud
hi-.mos their temperate and moral
Limits for their old and demure looks.
He even has the assurance to threaten
those business men who do not agree
with him on the temperance question.
The whole thing is growing to a very
serious issue, nnd can go very little further. Watchman.
Now West., April 25, 1885.
'he fabrication of the Nag's Head
Tavern, the object of whioh was to
throw discredit ou the consecration, was
invented 40 years after, in the ruigu of
James I, by a Jesuit named Holy wood,
when it was thought all present at the
ceremony were dead; but the old Earl of
Nottingham who was then alive, and
who had witnessed archbishop Parker's
coasecration in due form, testified to tho
falseness of the story, and iu confirmation ef thu fact Abbot, the then archbishop, produced the register of Canterbury.—Yours truly, B. MitXKit.
Lorne College, Apr. 22,
There is a curious diversity of taste
among smokers as to tho kind of pipe
they prefer. Some like the clay pipe
best, others prefer the briar root, others
again the meerschaum, some must have
their pipe well seasoned before they can
enjoy it, others again must havo a new
pipe and throw it away whenever it becomes a littlo old. But though this diversity of task' among them Is cimnua it
is not at all curious that therein substantial unanimity among them that thn
"Myrtle Navy" brand of Messrs. Tuck-

Reply to the Archdeacon.
Editor Colombian.- The Venerable
Archdeacon Woods, in his reply to my
letter, avers that he kaows nothing of
the controversy, spoken of by me, between 'Rome and Anglicans. To show
that such a contention does exist, I need
enly refer him to an article entitled
"More about Roman Jurisdiction," which
appears in the Churchman's Gazette for
Marcli; to the flutter caused Inst year by
the brochure of Monseigueur Capel, in
whioh that eminent Romanist assumes to
prove that the Church of England has uo
right to her pretended claim to the term
Catholic; and to the late controversy between A. Cleveland Coxe,' Bishop of
Western New York, and Catholic writers
iu the United States. The Archdeacon,
though not aware of those events, seems
to be familiar with Wesley's sermons,
wliich U perhaps better. He quotes
Wesley's sentiments against separation
.from the establishment, but what he intends to prove by it I try in vain to set.
These feelings against separation on the
part of Mr. Wesley, we're perfectly natural under the circumstances, before, as
he himself says, he had overcome the
"violent prejudice of education." Why
does not the Archdeacon proceed to tell
lis how that Wesley was finally driven
to give the Methodist societies a separate
organic existence and provide for ordinations in England, Scotland and America 1
The reasons for this I forbear to mention
at present. Surely my critic would uot
bold that Methodists cf to-day are members of the Church of Kngland, and yet
it was Wesley himself, who by legal
enactment made it certain that they
never sheuld be. In view of these facts,
I again ask, what does the quotation from
Wesley's sermon prove f
Furthermore, tha Archdeacon says,
that the Church of England is "perfectly
satisfied with what has come down ts
her from nnd through the* Apostles."
With due respect, I must say,jthnt I
cannot accept my venerable critic's dictum upon this point when I know that
the Church of Kngland herself is not a
unit upon the question as to what her inheritance derived from the Apostles really
is. There is no church in Christendom
more torn by conflicting views than the
Anglican Church is. For example, cau
it be said that the peculiar claims, pretentions and innovations of the High
Church party aro giving perfect satisfaction to the great masses of the Anglican
Communion ? •
The real point of my former letter,
which my critic entirely'avoids, was that
our High Church friends should be prepared to demonstrate beyond a doubt
their own boasted pedigree back to the
Apostles, before they proceed upon tht
strength of their dogma to disfranchise
all non-Episcopal churches of tlieir birthright. 1 his proof they know they cannot furnish, and hence it is easier to say
that they are "perfectly satisfied." But
suppose it could be proven, where can
either they or Homo find that the New
Testament teaches that an unbroken succession, such as they claim, is essential
to a true church, tr that even ordination
bestows the exclusive right to ordain
others ? As for references to the early
Fathers, I would say with the eminent
Bishop Stilliugtleet thut "the succession
so m.icli pleaded by the writers of the
primitive churoh was uot a succession of
persons in Apostolic power, but a sue-
cessinn in Apostolic doctrine." Tried by
this standard, where, 1 wonder, would
the Churchman's Gazette be with its
strange doctrines ? What would become
of auricubr confession, priestly absolution, sacramental efficacy and the like,
introduced by newly-fledged priests, who
sneer at the glorious Protestant Reformation and craftily Introduce their Popish
innovations ? If many look upon these as
innocent fancies, which it cau do no
harm for those who are pleased with
them to indulge in, then it is time to
ttach them the protests for which tlieir
fathers died and to expose to their detestation the fopperies and elegancies which
cover up the enormities of priestcraft.
I could fain hope that my venerable
friend knows no more of these evils than
he does of controversies abroad, and I
am sure that even ho would not counsel
silence where reverence for the Bible,
leva for the souls of men, and fidelity to
God would he sacrificed. Truckling, coquetting aud truce-making ill-become the
champions of a spiritual faith against the
devotees of Sacrsmentariauism. Charity
is both beautiful and Christ-like between
man nnd man even when separated by
differences of opinion, hut charity towards a corrupt system, whose sols defense is the defiant bnt imbecile cry "the
temple of the Lord, the temple of the
Lord are we," is treason to truth and
recreancy to duty. Good men, yea the
best of men sre not wanting in churches
where such teachings are forced upon
them, but they am kept iu a false position, their protests are disregarded and
their feelings can only bu imagined by
those outside. ('. WathoN.

War Notes
British merchants aro showing how
keenly alive they are to the danger
that their carrying trade may be transferred from England to some other
country (the U. S. bring most feared
in thia respect) as the result of a protracted war with so strong a nation as
Russia. They have already organized
a movement having for its object the
influencing of the cabinet to undertake
tho issuing of war risks on shipping.
It is argued the government could
issuo such risks at rates that would
prevent the wholesale transfer of the
British vessels to people of neutral
nations and in this way carry ou the
war without serious detriment to England's commercial interests.
Vanity Fair does not believe Russia
and England will come to blows over
tho Afghan question. That paper baldly declares te-day the whole squabble
with Russia is fictitious and insincere,
aud has been gotten up for no other
purpose thnn to cover the retreat of
tho government from Soudan and to
turn away public attention from the
extravagant expense of that insane
business. From Madrid comes intelligence that two cases of Asiatic cholera
hare been discovered at Salci near
Valenci, and that near the same place
one death has already been caused by
tho scourge. The immense stunt bridge
constructed by Chinese engineers over
the arm of the Chinese sea at Langang
is finished. The bridge is five milea
long is entirety of stone nnd 'has 300
arches each 70 feet high; The roadway is 70 foet wide.

St. Paul, April 24.—A Winnipeg
special says: A detatchment of Col.
Otter's force camped across Battle River frum Battleford last night, and the
garrison is much relieved. Battleford
despatches state that the remainder of
the force was only a short distance behind whon it arrived. The valley was
scoured by mounted police, who roport
that Indians and half-breeds have evidently lied at tho approach of troops.
Another Battleford despatch iu tho
course uf an account of the Fort Pitt
fight says that before the firing commenced factor McLean, of the Hudson
Bay Co., had a parley with Big Bear,
who assured him that it was the intention of tht Indians to kill tho police
only, and thnt civilians might leave the
fort in safety, and not be anxious for
tho women and children. McLean accepted Big Bear's terms and ieft with
about 50 civilians of all ages, who are
now with tho Indium. The remainder
of the garrison, outnumbered by the
enemy, retreated down the river taking
the guns and ammunition of the fort
with them.
Winnipeg, Apr. 24.—A Clarks crossing messenger who has just returned
from the north brings the following particulars of nn engagement with the
rebels which occured at 915 am 15
miles south of Batoucho. The insurgents had taken the ground on tht
edge of a deep ravine from which they.
poured n deadly fire into theadvancing
columns. When tho messenger left
the fight was still raging, three houses
of the enemy had been shelled and
many rebels driven from them took refuge in the ravene. The Indian allies
of the rebels fought vigorously in the
Indian fashion. The whole number in
the ravine is estimated at 300. Gen.
Middleton's hat was Bitot through, but
he.escapod uninjured. Capt. Wise, A,
1). C, had his horse shot under him.
The ravine is entirely surrounded, and
thero is no possibility of the rebels
escape. The Tenth Royals from the
west bank hud just arrived as thn messenger was leaving. Casualties, 3
killed, and 10 or 15 wounded.
12.30 p.m.—Several others wounded
but uot brought in yet. Ono party of
rebels just dislodged; artillery still
shelling rebels out tf the ravine; several Indian pontes captured; rebel Iobb
uut yel known. Tht Indians set tha
pruirio on fire, but a heavy hailstorm
extinguished it.
Ottawa, April 24.—The receipt uf
the press despatch announcing a battle
between Gen. Middleton's advanced
detachment and the rebels caused great
excitement in the House. Mtmbtrs

and Umbria, of the Cunard line, and
Richmond Hill, of the Hill line. With
the exception of the latter, which is to
bo employed as a troopship, these vessels
are the fastest in the ocean carrying

as rapid cruisers.
London, April 25.—A St. Petersburg
Special to the Standard says negotiations
continue between the Russian and the
Britisli governments. The frontier ques^
tions present no serious difficulty, but
the Penjdeh affair delays the meeting of
tbe boundary commission. Russia, says
the dispatch, is willing to cede Zulficar
in return for Penjdeh. That accomplished, the boundary commission could
probably arrange for the withdrawal of
both Russian ami Afghan troops from
the disputed zone as the solution of the
existing difficulty, It is asserted, however, that this is only possible if England
foregoes her claim for satisfaction from
Russia for Penjdeh. Satisfaction, con
tinucs the dispatch, Russia will not
give.  .
London, April 25.—A St. Petersburg
special says Emperor Alexandria passed
four hours to-day with Gen. AbrutachtfF,
chief of stafT, and several engineer oflicers, studying the wur maps uf the
Afghan frontier. Gen. AbruteclieiT re.
garde war as inevitable, and urges immediate mobilization, and tliat not a
moment should be lost in pushing ou to
Herat and Candahar. AbrutachefTs increasing influence over the Czar is believed here to lie very significant. Ht
said to the Czar this moraine; "Now is
the moment for Russia to strike. Lumsden's retreat has utterly. destroyed
England's prestige among the Afghans
who, I can assure ytur majesty, are
ready to revolt agaiust the Ameer. Besides, Persia is prepared secretly to help
us, and to do ao at the moment we
strike the first blow. All these advantages will be lost by daisy." The Czar
replied: "You are too hasty, general,
Russia's manifest destiny is too strong to
be wrecked by any human agency. I
still hope that war may be averted; but
come what will, I never shall consent to
give' up Penjdeh nor tht Zulficar Pass."
Washington, April 25, 3 p. m.—U.
S. Consul Jas. W. Taylor at Winnipeg,
Man., sent the following to-day to Secretary Bayard: "The battle withRiel's
force at Fish Creek continued all day
Friday. The Canadian loss was 12
killed and 47 wounded. Gen. Middle-
ton retired about a mile to open a space
on the northeast bank of the Saskatchewan. He was reinforced by a column
from tho other side of the river, but the
number of tioops still doea not exceed
600. The rebel forces, including scouting party engaged, is probably 300, but
thero are rumors of hostile Indians in
the rear of Gen. Middleton. The situation is very grave. There was a storm
of rain ami a high wind last night. There
is hope of arrival of the steamer North-
cote from Swift Current with gatliug
guns, but there is danger of her being
interrupted ou getting aground on the
sandbars of the South Saskatchewan.
The rebel loss is unknown on account of
their advantageous position on Fish
Creek in a wooded ravine. The insurgents were led bv Gabriel Dumont. Their
fire was most deadly. Nearly all who
wero killed were shot through the head
or heart. Then is a hospital for the
wounded at Clark's Crossing. The occupation of Battleford by other troops,
relieving the garrison of the settlers,
may check further hostilities by the
North Saskatchewan Indians. There ia
telegraphic communication with Battle-
ford, but the Battleford fort is 25 miles
from the nearest station and news cornea
only by courier to Clark's Craning. Gen,
Middleton announces his purpose to the
Ottawa authorities to advance immediately on RlePs headquarters and Bat-
ouche Crossing. His rear is now east or
south of the South Saskatchewan."
Winnipkq, April 25.—The Free. Press
correspondent telegraphs from Clark's
Crossing: "A messenger came down
from camp this morning and reports that
when tho rebels were out of the bush
behind the ravine cheering and jeering
the troops the guns were ordered up to
drive them off, but they captured ont
medicine chest and n tew boxes of
canned beef. The correspondent also
reported that thn officers would not allow him to come down on the tost side,
alleging there were rebels in the woods
at Mcintosh. This strengthens the impression that the insurgents have prevented any messengers coining through
from Middleton to-night. Middleton
seems to hart been unable to accomplish
anything of importance in the way of
advance on the rebels. It is understood
here. that he is hampered by the necessity of caring for the wounded and having supplies and ammunition forwarded.
It appears at present as if there will be
no further fighting before Sunday. All
reports of yesterday's fight show that
the rebels had decidedly the best of it.
Thty were drawn from one part of their
position, hut held the ravine. Their fire
caused terrible havoc among the troops.
Middletoi evidently did not properly
appreciate the fighting totalities of the
half-breeds or be would not have sent
raw volunteers, unaccustomed to rifle
shooting, to dislodge from a strung
position such accomplished sharpshooters
as the insurgents. The latter tired with
deadly accuracy from behind shelter.
Middleton's repulse is almost sure to
■tir the Indians up to renewed ravages."
A Great Mistake.—It is a great mistake to suppose that dyspepsia can't bo

SPECIAL DESPATCHES.
WiNMPOT,. April 20. —A dispatch received by the Free Press from Clark's
Crossing says: Couriers who left camp
have just arrived, and report fighting today. JJarey Baker, of the Boulton
mounted infantry, died last night. This
makes a total of 8 deaths so far—4 of tlie
UUth rifles, _ of "A" battery, 1 of Toron
to school of infantry, and ono of Boul-
ton's men. Supply and other teams arriving late Inst night nearly got into tha
rebel camp, thinking the troops had gone
ou to Ratouchc, Huving discovered the
mistake, they returned and were approaching Gen. Middleton's camp from
the direction of the enemy's line, and
not hearing the challenge of the sentry
they were tired upon. Eight shots were
fired without doing further injury than
alarming the camp on both sides of the
river. Capt. Clarke and Lieut. Sirin-
ford, of the IHHh regiment, ara still alive,
but likely tb die to-day.
Ottawa, April 2(1.—The following is
au ollicial statement uf tht engagement
of Fish Creek ou Friday, mado to the
minister of militia: "I havo had an
affair with the rebels at-this spot. On
the east bank of the river my advanced
scouts were fired upun froni bluffs, but
we managed to hold our own until the
main body arrived when I took measures
to repel the attack, whioh was over at
about 2i30 o'clock p.m. We have captured a lot of {their ponies, and have
three or four, apparently Indians and
half-breeds, in a corner of tht bluffs who
have dont a great deal of mischief, being
evidently their best shots, and as I am
unwilling to lose more men tu trying to
take them, I have surrounded the bluff
aud shall wait until they have expended
their ammunition  and   capture them.
Lord Melgund joined ine as soon as he
could from the other side of the river
with the tenth royals and Winnipeg half
battery, but the affair was over before
they arrived. I shall march to-morrow
with the united force on Batouche. The
troops behaved very well in this their
first affair. Tht killed and wounded are,
I regret to say, too numerous. Killed as
follows: Private Hutchinson, No. ICo.j
Private FergiiBon, No. 1 Co.; Private
Ennis, No. 4 Co. (all these belong ts
the !K)t.li regiment); GunnerDemaanelly,
"A'1 battery. Wounded: Capt. Clark
and Lieut. Swinford, 00th regiment,
seriously; Capt. Wise, A. 1), C., and
Lieut, Dotieel, A. D. (,'., tne in the leg
and the other in the arm; in the mounted infantry, Darcy Baker, Lieut. Bruco;
Capt, Gardner received 2 wounds, neither
serious; C, F, King, H. P. Renin and J.
Longford, "A" battery, gunners; Asst-
liu and Emery, acting bombardiere; Taylor, sergt.-major; Mawhiuuey, driver;
Harrison and driver Wilson, E. G. Man-
sell and Private C. -A. Arnsworth, very
seriously; Walter Woodman, school of
■infantry, and Arthur Watson, very serious; R. H. Dunn, A. Jones, color-sergeant, R. Cummings and R, Jones, SlOtli
regiment; Corpl. Leith, C. Co., and Private Kemp, A. Co., very seriously; Corporal B. D. Code, O. Co., Private Hart,
F. Co., Private Brock wood, C. Co., Private Kauniir, C. Co., Private W. W.
Matthews, A. Co., and Private Lo veil,
F. Co. I do not know what the loss of
the enemy was, but I doubt uot it was
pretty severe, though judging from the
great advantage of their positions and
made of fighting it might be less than
ours. I shall proceed to-morrow after
hurrying dead and sending the wounded
hack to Clark's crossing, by moving on
this side- I lose telegraph line, but snail
keep up constant communication by way
of Clark's crossing, if possible.—Fred.

occurred between the Russians and Afghans.
London, Apr. 27.—The house of com'
mons, without discussion, as suggested
by Gladstone, voted tho entire credit of
£55,000,000 asked by the government.
Montreal, Apr. 27.—There is a great
flood in Point St. Charles and St. Gabriel, suburbs of Montreal, Many bpat
loads of provisions have been distributed
among the people who are imprisoned in
upper stories of their houses, and actual
starvation will be avoided. Advices
from La Prairie state that the flood has
increased and the surrounding country as
far as cau be seen is covered with water.
The loss there is now estimated at $250, •
000; at Joliette tho damage is $50,000.
At Nouns' Island the water has reached
second stories.
Brussels, Apr. 27.—The Independent
Belye. publishes under reserve, but from
an excellent source, a report of a fresh
battle between the Russians and Afghans
in which the former were defeated and
retired, having met with heavy loss.
London, Apr. 27.—The St. Petersburg
correspondent of the Dady News aays:
I am informed on good authority of another engagement on the Afghan frontier.
Of the 1,700 Russians who engaged the
Afghans, nearly all were killed.
London, April 27,— In moving the
vote of credit, Mr. Gladstone said tbe
government considers it necessary to
have the entire resources of tht empire well in hand for use on application
whenever they may be required.
Events since the ful of Khartoum
hnvefftnwn that El Mahdi's power hot
collapsed. England's possession of
Khartoum would not put a stop tn the
slave trade, and therefor* it would be
useless to waste blood and treasure in
the Soudan. In regard to tho alleged
smalhieBs of vote, he reminded the
house that it was the largest thnt had
been asked since the Crimean war, aud
it is also coincident with large increases
in the annua! nrmy and navy votes.
Furthermore he said the case relates
primarily to India. In order fully to
appreciate the amount required it is
requisite to know the extent of measures being taken in India. The case
is not one of war, actual or perhaps
proximate. He did not feel called on
to define the degree of damage, but
he would say in regard to the snd contingency of an outbreak of war or a
rupture of relations with Russia, that
her majesty's government has striven
to conduct the controversy iu such a
way that if unhappily it ended in violent rupture they might at least be
able to challenge the verdict of civilized mankind whether or not they had
done all that men oould do, nnd used
every just and honorable effort to pre
vent the plunging of two such countries into bloodshed and despair.
(Cheers.) "Tho question before the
commons," he said, "was simple, and

one. There exists abundant cause fur

which should be fulfilled. (Cheers.)
The covenant with Russia of March
liiili was one which England hoped
and believed would bo recognized as
one of the most sacred tver made between two great nations, and if any
deviation had ocuurred there Bhould
he jealous rivalry between the two
nations to sift to the bottom all thut
remained in suspense. A bloody en-
gagoment had occurred on March 30th,
showing that one or both failed to
fulfil the covenant. England considered it the duty of both countrios to
asturtain huw tho calamity was caused.
He would not suy that tht British officers were right. Ha felt perfect confidence in the British officers, but he
would not assume they might not have
boon misled. He "ould not say the
government, possessed all the facts of
the case. They possessed facts which
created an impression adverse to that
formed by the other party tn the covenant, but they would riot deviate from
the strictest principle of justice by
anticipating tho ultimate issue of fair
inquiry which they wero desirous of
prosecuting. The cause of the collision is perhaps doubtful, but it is certain that the Russini.s wore tho attacking party, und that thu Afghans
suffered defeat. Knowing that a blow
has beon struck at the credit and authority of our ally, we aro unable to
close the book and to say wo will not
look iuto it any more. At the conclusion of the speech, thu delivery of
which occupied one hour, the house
broke into loud and prolonged cheers.
Mr. Gladstone was listened to with
deep attention nnd silence, and his
words created u profound sensation.
FortTootbh, D. T., Apr. 27.—The
whole force of cavalry and infantry is
held under marching orders to head off
any movement across the lino to help
Riel. A courier just in from Turtle
Mountain reservation says the Indians
are quiet on the reservation and exhibit
no intention of going across tho border.
threo com laden vessels have left the
port of Riga during the past two weoks.
Vessels remaining at Riga and othor
Russian ports on tbe Baltic are striving to complete their, cargoes so as to

Seven million roubles in gold have
been sent to Central Asia. A decision
as to peace or war is expected to-morrow, or at the latest by the first (.f
May. The lecture by Capt. Torukhoff,
of the uuaids, is much commented
upon. The speaker referred to the
eventual conquest of the Afghans,
which would be as diflicult as the conquest of the Caucasus had been. It is
estimated that tho Ameer's forces
number 50,000 men and 00 guns.
Neither the Finland diet nor press has
made proposals to equip privateers,
nor have Finnish sailers offered to man
privateers. The Nova Vremya suys
if Russia is forced into war England
may rely on it that it will be conducted
with the utmost energy.
Ottawa, Out., Apr. 27.—A telegram hns been received by tho authorities here from Gen. Strango, who
advises sending all available troops
into the Saskatchewan country wesl
of Battleford, where Indians aru gathering iu great force. He has learned
that two white women (supposed to bo
Mrs. Gowatilock und Mrs. Delany)
have been sold by the Indians to half-
breeds to be held as hostages.
Panama, Apr. 27.—On the 28th of

sailed unexpectedly from Callao at 4
p. in., nnd H. M. ship Sapho left port

London, Apr. 27.—The Post editorially saya that the war credit was
voted on without nny person venturing a reply to Mr. Gladstone is unprecedented in this or auy other country,
Mr. Gladstone's language is too significant to require comment. Tho Telegraph cannot believe that such a
spectaclo at was presented in thu
house will be lost even upon Russia.
The Times says editorially: If Russia's
policy ia founded upon a belief that
England will submit to any exactions
rather than rupture relations, Mr.
Gladstone's speech must dispel the
illusion.
Dongola, Apr. 2". - The Mahdi

A REMARKABLE STORY.
It was a curious scene. The windows were all closud and candles upun
the table still burning; but tlio light
swept iu from above, over the top of
the shutters, which were not so high
as tho glass, and lighted up the room
in a strange, abstract way, like n studio
or a prison. In the midst of this palo
and colorless illumination Hester's
while face, with the blue veins showing in it, in an attitude of utter abandonment and exhaustion, pillowed
upon the dark oushious of llio chair,
was tho central point; hor hand, with
the pen iu it, was slill on the tabic,
the candles nickering with a yellow,
uncertain blaze.
Catherino went uud stood by her for
a moment und looked at her. Tears
wore upon the girl's long eyelashes,
hur mouth seemed still quivering) the
faint sound tif a sob came out of her
sleep. Bhe looked younger even than
sho war, liko a child thut hnd cried
itself asleep. Cntherino luuked at her
with ninny a thought. John Vernon's
daughter, who had nli but ruined her
father's houso und hud wounded her
own pride, if hot her heart, in the wny
woman feel most, und, bitterer still,
Edward's lovo—alio for wlnnu lio had
planned lo bolt'iiy hev own better
claims, for whom lie would have deserted her, for whom he hnd ruined her;
this time, perhaps, without remedy.
With a strange bitterness she looked nt
tho young creature thus fatally connected with ull the miseries of her life.
It was not Hester's fault. The table
was covered wiih proofs of her submission uud obedience. If it wns true
Hint but for her, perhaps, Catherine's
power would never hnve been disturbed, it was also true that but for
hur Catherino might hnve been ruined
irretrievably—she nml all she prized
most. Hut this argument did nut tell
in the mind of tho woman who stood
gazing ut her, bo much ns the look of
utter, infantile weariness, the broken
sound ofthe sleeping sob, the glitter
upon her iyelaslies.
She stood for. a long time, nnd lies-
tor never moved; then she took a
shawl and covered the sleeper :is tenderly us her mother could hnve done
it, aud begun to-, pace softly up nnd
down in that weird clearness. Shu
did not even extinguish the candles,
but left them there amid all the dis-
arry of thu table, tho scattered papers,
covered with notes nud figures. The
young can sleep, but uot the old. Tlie
romantic interest would be with Hester, worn oot with wretchedness and
weariness, but the heavier burden was
her own.
Perhaps, hnd the truth been pursued to ks depths, it gave a certain
sntisfnetinn to Catherine to find herself at last left to contemplate alone
that uttermost nud profoundest loss
which was hers. The girl slept, though
her heart might be broken; the woman
whose last hope he wns, whose faith in
human nature was wound up in him,
who believed in Edwnrd, but ou earth
in no one else, slept not, rested not,
could uut forget She walked from
end to end of thu room, her lunula
clospud, her fnce, in nil its comely age,
pfiled in a moment to the pallor of nu
old woman. People imd snid that her
color wns like a gill's atill—her eye
wus not dim, nor her untnvnl forco
abated; but over her there hnd come
this chill in n moment. And where
was he, the causo of it all 1 Flying fait
across the country somewhere, direct-
.ing his wuy, no doubt, to Home poit
where lie could yet out of England,
For whnt, oh Heaven! for what? Was
there any sacrifice she wmild not hnve
made for him ? Me might have had his
Hester, his own houso like the others,
if thut was what ho wanted. There
wns nothing, nothing she would hnve
grudned himl She would hnve naked
no gratitude, mndo uo conditions, Ho
should have hnd hii freedom and his
love--wha to ver he wanted. All tins
swept through her mind as she went to
nnd fro in that bluo cleartiusB of the
morning, which Bwopt down upon her
from the skies over nil the weariuoas
and disarray of the night,
Catherine did not ask heraelf what
she would hnvo snid, nll things being
well, if sho had been asked to consent
to the effacing of herself, whicli iimv,
it seemed, would have been so easy a
solution of the problem. It seemed lo
her now that in love, she would hnvo
granted all ho could ask for, and in
pride she certainly wonld hnvo done it,
scorning to nsk how he could resign
her ao easily. Love and pride combined wiung her heart between them
now. Up and down, up nnd down,
with a soft, monotonous motion, she
walked unsubdued while tho others
sunk. Her old frame felt no weariness, her old heart wns yet high. She
could no more sink down, and acknowledge herself beaten, than she could
drop her head and sleep like Hcstsr.
With impatience and tin etlercy unbroken she wnted for tbo day.
Catherine's carriago stood outside
tho bank at eight o'clock in tlio morning, to the wonder, yet admiration, of
the town. "Old ns sho is, she's un ox-
ample to the young ones," the people
said, though theru wure darker rumors,
too, that one of the young men hnd
gone wrong, nnd that it was n sharp
and spoedy inquiry into this that had
brought Catherine into tlm town without delay. The still closed-door wus
opened to her by Harry, who wus pule
with hii sleepless night, and with tho
anxiety from which he could now llml
no escape. Behind Hnrry wan old
Rule, who came forward, with a face
like a mute at u funeral, his hands held
up, his countenance distorted vi ith
grief and sympathy. "Oh, iny dear
lady!" "he criod; ''oh. Miss Catherine,
has it come to this? Who could suppose thut yuu and I should incut together a second time in this wny I"
Catherino mado n. sudden gesture of
impatience. "How do you know what
the wny is until you hear?''she Baid.
She sat down at the table where she
hud sat so often. Hur old look of command, tho pnerityand lifo of old, seem,
ed iu her face; if it was puled and
jadud, the others, who were more
shaken still than aho, hud no oyes to
see it. Tho throo wero deep iu their
work beforo the clerks appeared, one
by one, all those who wero of any
weight in tho place, or cured for Vernon's, asking anxiously if anything was
known of Mr. Edward. When they
were met by the astonishing statement
"Miss Vornon is here," tiio announcement wns received in different ways,
but witli great excitement. "Then all
is right," said one; but anothor shook
his head. "All must bo very wrong,"
lio said, "or Catherino Vornon would
not be here."
It was the cashier who uttered these
words. Ho was un old servant of the
bank, nnd had been a junior at the
time when fUlu was hend clerk mid
Catherine thu soul of everything.
After a while he was sent for into tlm
mysterious room toward which tho attention of every one was now directed.
There old Mr. Merridew was shown iu,
with solemnity on liis brows, and
various others of the fathers of the
town. Even outside thero seemed a
liltlw excitement about to the anxious
spbutators within. If it hud. been
market-day there might have been a
run on tho bank. As it was, there
were one or two little groups about,
anxiously noting the crave faces of the
visitors.
All dny long they enme and wont;
lhe great books were all spread about
upon tho table within, aud whon tho
door opened sometimes ono anxious
face would be seen, sometimes another.
Ono of the younger men passing the
door saw Catherine horself explaining
nnd urging something upon the chief
of the Bank of England iu Kedbor-
ottgh, who had joined the conclave.
It was clearly then, thoy all felt, a
mutter of lifo and death._ Some wine
and biscuits were taken in iu the middle of the day, but uo one went awny
for luncheon, no one had time or
leisure for any such thought. Mr.
Pounceboy, who was Cntherino';! solicitor, stayed by her nll dny long, while
thu others went and camo. The
clerks, when their day's work wns
done, left this secret conclave still sitting. The cashier and the head clork
wero detained after tho others. Tho
youilgor men went nwny with tin
alarmed sense that Vernon's might
never open again,
And this impression was so far justified lhat the councillors, nlmust without exception, thought so too. There
hnd been found ill Edwnrd's room at
the Grange a bundle.of paoeraj securities taken by him From the safe at the
bank. The greater part hnd beeu abstracted, but tlio few thut were left
showed too clearly what methods ho
hnd adopted. The bank itself was
worth aiding. Its prestige its yet was
scarcely touched; but how wero these
doliciencies to bo mado up, how whb it
io he worked without, money, nud how
was its credit to be restored? Catherine had not now tho independent fortune which on tho former occasion she
hnd thrown into the common stock
with proud conlitlenco in Vernon's.
lt had all been repaid hur, but it hnd
reiuuiiied in the business, ami, if Vernon's now were to be mnde nil end of,
wns gone. Thnt did not affect the
mind of the proud old woman. She
thought nothing of herself or her for-
e. She sat unwearied, meeting
one man after another, who a week or
so ago had been obaequii ms to her, without wincing, ready to hear all their
doubts, to War the sinkings of their
heads, their blame of the culpable
negligence that had left everything in
one man's linnd—their denunciations
of Edward, the eager advantage they
took of that right to Iind fault and reproach which ii put into the hands of
ven- nnn who is asked to help.
Catherine faltered a; first when she
found thnt to save Edward's chancier,
to smooth away his guilt, and make
excuses for him, was impossible.
These angry mm would not bear a
wnrd of apology. Be was a swindler
to them and uotfcifig more. "Pardon
me, my dear Sfiss Vernon, but 1 al-
ways thought lbs- confidence you
showed in that young fellow excessive.'' "He should not have been
permitted a tithe uf the power he had.
It was'not just to others who were far
more deserving." "If you mean Ilie,
I was no more to be matched with
Edward tit.01 a ti-rteisfl is with a hare,"
snid Harry. Cntherino put out her
hand to him under the table nud gave
hia hand Mich n pressure, delicate as
hers was, us almost made tbo strong
youiii- fellow ory out; but at the same
lime sho silenced him with a look aud
bore it all. She bore everything—the
ioug hours of contention, of explanation, of censure, ot excuse, of anxious
pointing out again uud again of tlie
strong points in her case. Sho argued
it all out with every individual, nud
again witli evory combination of them,
when two or threu together would return to the old objections, the difficulties they had originally started, and
whicli again and again had been argued awny. with nu doubt the natural,
special pleading of ai.ll who speak ill
their own defense. During thia continually repeated process Harry would
stand behind hev with bin face of
trouble, watching the couutennces of
the speakers, uow and then blurtilig
out something (the reverse of judicious
in most cases), shuflling with uneasy
feet upon tlie floor; sometimes, p->or
fellow, there being nothing elso iu his
power, holding her elbow with tho
idea of supporting her, kneeling down
to put her footstool straight; while old
Mr. Rule, sitting at n little distnncu,
equnliy anxious, equally enger, not of
importance enough to speak, would
ceuiu in with a quavering "Miss Vernon explained all that, sir-" "As
Miss Vernon has already said, sir—"
She alone showed littlo anxiety aud
no distress. She was as dignified as if
sho had been entertaining them at hor
table, as shu bad done so often. She
bore those repetitions of tbu old objections with composure. She did not
get impatient, twisting and turning in
in her chair like Mr. Rulo, or crushing
her impatience underfoot like Harry.
She was like an Indian at the stake, or
rather like a prime-minister in his
place In Parliament. The hundred
times repeated argument; the old doubt
brought up again, all afresh with shakings of the head, the stolid little compliments tn hur as a woman so much
superior to her sex, her masculine understanding (good lack! wonderful,
though not equal to those whom she
had convinced over and over again,
yet who begnu agabi next moment
where they had left ofl), all this shu
put up with without shrinking. Oh,
the dullness of them, the uneoiivinci-
bloness, tbo opaque vision, Iho impotent hearts! Hut she made no sign that
she perceived. She s.it still mul held
her own. She had the. bent of the
argument in logic but not, alns! in
power, 'f.iu mortal hours had struck
by the time the hut of her visitors
hastened awav to his dinner, promising to think of it, yet shaking his hend.
Catherine leaned ber head upon the
buck of hor high chair ami closed her
eyes; the tears came to them in the
relief of having no more to sny. She
wan so pallid and so worn now that
they both'rushed to her in silent tor
ror. She opened her eyes with an
astonished look. "I hopo you do not
think I am going to faint; 1 never
faint," she snid.
Ten hours! Shu walked to her carriago with a foot lighter and firmer
thau that of Hnrry, upon whoso lino
physique and troubled soul this day
luul wrought more havoc thnn tho
severest foot-ball. She would not ul-
low her old friend and servant to come
to the door with her,
"Don't tiro you.dclf," she snid; "you
hnvo so much to do for us yet. I
think we shall pull through."
"Goo bless you, Miss Catherino!''
said tho old num. "If wo pul! through
it will bo your doing."
"What merit iH that?'1 she said,
quickly. "Why should Ood bless me
for that? It is for myself."
