No one who from tlie heights of
Simla has looked down over the
vast continent thnt stretches southward to Ceylon, and has contrasted
the profound tranquility of its present peace with the anarchy, the
bloodshed, nnd the rapine which
were universal before our advent,
cun refrain from smiling incredulously ut the timorous weaklings
who fear that to hold the Nile for
civilization would prove too great a
task for tho rulers of India. There
are difficulties in Egypt, no doubt.
The mountaineers of the Soudan
are fierce and fanatical, the fellaheen are starving, and foreign intrigue is rife. But what is the fanaticism of the Soudan to the fervid
faith of the Sikhs. The whole of,
the fellaheen do not outnumber the
Hindoos whom we have saved from
death during tho last famines; and
as for foreign intrigue, that, too,
was rife enough in the days when
the French held more of India than
that fragment at Fondioherry whicli
they are now so dilligently converting into a coaling station on the
road to China. From the Himalayas to Cape Comorin nearly three
hundred millions of men, whose
normal state for centuries had been
one of fierce internecine feud, varied
by the plundering raids of savage
invaders, are now living as peacefully as if they were in Kent.
Throughout the whole of that enormous area not a gun can be fired iu
war without our leave and to-night
in the remotest village any European may pitch his. tent nnd sleep
as securely as in a Yorkshire dale.
And this administrative miracle is
wrought daily, without visible strain
or effort, by a European garrison,
all told, of less than 100,000 men. -

clinch the whole, it is triumphantly
pointed out that Australian papers
are content to accept tlie foul, us a
sufficient explanation of the result.
But this only shows that if fraud
were resorted to the antipodean
journalists were as badly deceived
as othor people. It iB not to be
supposed that a sculler of Hanlan's
repute dare trust to a transparent
device for gaining his ends, supposing those to be dishonest.* * He carried too much money to risk discovery. It is possiblo to prove that
letters written in Australia beforo
the Hanlan-Beach race by brothers
of the Canadian to whom they were
addressed announced tliat Beach
would win, The object oi the writers wns to give the recipient of the
letters an opportunity of. uKiktng
money by betting Against HAnlun.
The exact words used in the (irst
epistle were: "I had conversation
with Hanlan, Be not surprised if
Beach wins, I stand to win thirty
guineas on Beach winning." Thi;
writer states" that he knew Hanlan
in Toronto in 1877, and that the
champion went up to hiin in'Australia, recognized him and fraternized—the implication being tliat
the " tip" was a result Tlie writer
of a second letter " stood to win fifteen guineas" by Hanlan's defeat,
Both correspondents appear to be
" well posted''in sporting matters,
and are men of repute and substance. All tliis gives color to the
suspicion that the foul—if that
wero the means used to lose the
race—was preconcerted. This may
be matter for regret, but it can
cause no surprise, Athletic competitions for money stakes almost invariably end in chicanery. Hanlan
is known to be a needy man, fond
of money, given to gambling, and
bis only chance to make a considerable sum was to lose the race and
lay against himself—a device which
it is only too apparent he resorted'
to.—77*6 Week

How little we know about Africa
and how much there is to learn!
Hitherto Lake Superior has been
heralded in our geographies as the
largest fresh water lake in the
world, but our geographies must be
remodelled, and American-Canadian
ambition given a back seat. The
Viotoria Lake is a great inland sea
of fresh water much larger than
Lake Superior, and is the centre of
the Dark Continent's great water
courses. The rivers ara so large,
the chain of lakes so complete, that
with a comparatively small expenditure for canals, ships will one day
be able to traverse via the Congo
valley, the heart of Africa from the
. Atlantic to the Indian Ocean, and
so provide another rood to India.
Little more than a decade ago, the
valley of the Congo was practically
a terra incognito to Europeans. Its
inhabitants instead of being sunk
in ignorance and a savage warlike
spirit, prefer agricultural pursuits
when left to themselves, and are inoffensive unless wronged. It is
this gentle spirit of the peoplo
whioh has mode their domain the
favorite field for slave traders' ravages, A few years ago one white
man—Stanley—had alone traversed
the domain, but to-day some two
hundred including our owu Col. De
Winton, are engaged in penetrating
the furthest extent of its' distance.
Trading stations uow extend for fifteen hundred miles inland, A short
railway already connects the trading point of Vivi situated ou the
Congo with the city of that name.
Stanley claims that the great Congo
district is a territory of almost unequalled fertility aud that it is by
proper dietary attention possible for
Europeans to live and prosper thero.
Other travellers, however, dispute
this; but whether it be so possible
or not, thero is no doubt as to tho
presence of millions of inhabitants
who are ready and willing to consume the products of European
workshops and mills. The natural
productions of this country are need •
ed by Great Britain especially, and
can, under her system of free trade,
be received in payment of her sales
to the natives.—Ottawa Free Preea.
Had Hanlan's career been entirely freo from suspicion he could not
have, received more loyal support
from his admirers and the Canadian
■porting fraternity generally. Not
content with maintaining that it is
impossible for any living sculler to
beat him on his merits, Hanlan's
champions have the courage to claim
that the idea of his having sold the
race is not a contingency that can
be entertained in discussing tho
Australian fiasco. If it was not the
"foul," it was the "climate," he wns
" not fit," he had "eaten plum-pudding the day Woro the race"!   To
Some little time ago, says Max
O'Rell in the Pall Mall Gazette, a tix-
mor reached London in the nfternoon
that tho Chineso had annihilated the
French troops in Tonquin, The great
event waa immediately announced in
tho newspapers' contents bills in lot-
tors live inclios long. The rumor
turned out to bo a hoax. Two days
later the littlo French garrison gained
an important victory over the Celestial troops, and the same content* bills
announced tho sod intelligence in
minute type, carefully hidden among
other moro or less uninteresting news.
Oh! tho dear neighbors!
A royal English prince dies in the
south of France. From Cnnnes to
Calais, let tho French nntiun, along
the whole line, pour forward to show
thoir sympathy with u queen and a
nation iu mourning, and not a lender
wilt appear in England to comment on
the fact. But let an anonymous pamphlet, not oven written by a Frenchman, appear on the boulevards, calling
upon the French poople to sink the
island of John Bull at the bottom of
the sea, and although no serious French
paper will so much. as notice it, the
Times aud all the English dailies will
for days be filled with lenders on Iho
subject.
Oht the dear neighbors!
Let books appear iu France, written
with a view to acquainting Iho Frenoh
people with the virtues as well as the
oddities of this grent nation, and some
brutal English penman will immediately publish his experience of Parisian ill-famed resorts—which '. he, of
course, visited en tout' bien tout hon-
neur, for tho benefit ef his countrymen.
Oh! the dear neighbors!
Let the French send an army of
200,000 mon to thu Crimen to assist
the English in keeping the Russians
nut of Constantinople, nnd you will
read in English books: "We prevailed
against the Russians with but a very
small forco." Not a word will be said
nbout Con, Bosijuot, who, at Inker-
maun, prevented the wholo of tho
"small force" from being Annihilated.
I hnvo seldom met with Englishmen
who even remembered the nntmt of
Bosquet, or hnd heard of his zouaves.
Oh! the dear neighbors!
Lut tho French enst loving glances
at the western const of Madagascar,
and John Bull, who always boars the
tenth commandment in mind as ho
looks at the map of thu world, U the
first to oxclniui, ".Stop thief!"
Oh! the dear neighbors!
Lot tho English honestly ask tho
French to join thum in trying to put
down nnnrcliy nnd Arabi, Pasha in
Egypt, and lhey will refuse j but some
French pupers will bo found ready,
when tho work is done, to set down
in black and whilo their disappointment at soeing Arnbi on tlie losing
side. Nay more, should the cholera
break out in tho lnnd of the Pharaohs about tho same time, charitable
suggestions will be heard about its
having been imported frum India, in
order to give the English nn exouse
for not leaving their poor victims too
hurriedly.
Oht the dear neighbors!
Whon 1 lock around um.ong my
friends and acquaintances in Franco
and England, and think of the kind
manner in which I invariably hear
France and the French spoken of by
Englishmen, and England and ' her
people spoken of by my countrymen,
I ask myself: Whero are the haters?
Who wants to fight?
It seems to be a thousand pities
thut two regiments enn nut bo formed,
one in the Faubourg Moutmnrtre, tho
other in Fleet-street. Then, perhaps,
the two bellicose.parties might be induced to go nnd tight it out to thoir
hearts' content in somo neutral spot in
the distance—say Jericho.    .
 «,	
"Will you hnvo salt on your egg?"
asked tho hotel- waiter of the guest.
"Oh.no thanks;  thoy aro not at all
fresh."   Then tho waiter wont out to
consult the landlord to see if the hotel
had been insulted.

It docs not seem possible to count
out the Democratic candidate tliis
time. The official returns for New
York are not yet complote, but
when the leading Republican journals of the metropolis admit the
election of Cleveland, there need
lie no further question. Already
tho members of tlio civil service
throughout tite country are putting
tlieir houses in order for a change.
The successful party hus so long
been out of office that the changes
are likely to be sweeping. The
system, carried out with so much
rigor in the United States, of changing all officials with every change
of government, is cruel and pernicious.
If will be a great relief to the
nation, and to the civilized world,
when the uncertainties respecting
the besieged garrison of Khartoum
have been removed. Reports continue to be most conflicting. One
of the latest mentions that Gen.
Gordon has made a pasha of the
Mudir of Dongola and raised him
to the rank of general. From this
it seems that Gordon continues to
exercise the extraordinary powers
conferred upon him. But Lord
Wolseley has a commission which
seems to supersede that of Gordon
and some people are of opinion that
the latter will not consent to abandon Khartoum unless all the peo
pie are provided with proper means
of retreat. The opinion may lie
well founded, and if it is Wolseley
may have to arrest Gordon and
carry him away a prisoner,
Some of the settlers across the
river have a grievance against the
administration of the railway lands.
If the statements made by these
people are true, the matter is of
sufficient importance to call for an
investigation. Some of them, in
clearing their lands, have cut up
the suitable timber into cordwood,
intending to take it to the market.
But they received notices from the
Dominion government agency at
Victoria to the effect that every
foot of timber removed from the
land would have to Ite paid fori If
these statements do not misrepresent, tlie notices served seem to us
a strange piece of foolishness and
inconsistency. Settlers are allowod
to cut down and burn all the timber on their lands, but when they
propose to make use of it as a
source of profit they are told that it
must be paid for.
The New License Law.
Our readers are already aware
that tho machiuery for granting
liquor licenses under the Dominion
Liquor Licenso Act is being put in
operation in this district. It is a
pity tliat this should bo done while
the validity of the act itself is still
undecided, but it is of considerable
importance that the poople should
inform themselves concerning the provisions of the act aud the powers it
confers upon the commissioners and
the people respectively. In another
column will be found a list of thoso
who have applied for licenses under
this act. Wo presume theso appli
cants have complied with the conditions imposed upon them: if any
of thein have not, we suppose the
applications will not lie entertained
by the commissioners. There are a
great many people, however, through
the district who arc of opinion that
no licenses should be granted in the
various settlements; and as it is
proper that the wishes of the ma
jority should prevail, these people
ought to know what provision the
act makes for a legnl expression of
their opinion. Section 13 provides
that applications for license from
any person who does not already
hold a liquor license must be accompanied by a certificate signed by
one-third of the electors entitled to
vote in the polling subdivision in
whioh the premises sought to lit
licensed are situated. In unorgau
wed ■ districts this certificate shall
be signed by at least 10 out of tho
20 householders residing nearest the
premises for which a licenso has
been applied. Any 10 or more
electors of any polling subdivision,
or any 6 or more out of 20 householders in unorganized districts, re
siding nearest the premises for
which a license is asked, may object, by petition or otherwise, to the
granting of any license for any of
tho following reasons : (1) That thp
applicant is of bad fame antl character, or of drunken habits, or has
previously forfeited a licenso, or that
the applicant has been convicted of
selling liquor without a license within a period of 3 years; (2) Tlmt
the premises in question are out of
repair, or lmvo not the accommodation required, or reasonable accommodation; (3) That tho licensing
of tho promises is not required in
the neighborhood, or that the premises are in the immediate vicinity of a place of public worship, hospital, or school, or that
the quiet of tho place in which
the premises are situated will bo
disturbed if a license is granted.
Petitions against granting licenses
must be lodged with the inspector
at least 4 clear days before the day
appointed for the meeting of the
board (in this district the board
meets on the 4th December). These
petitions must have, in addition to
tho signatures, a statement of the
approximate distance of each signer's residence or property from the
promises for which a licenso is
asked. Without these particulars
the petition may fail, for tho commissioners are instructed to erase
from it overy name with respect to
which these particulars are not
given, Every application for a
license, and objections thereto, shall
be determined by thd license board
at open meoting. Tlie i-equiremeuts
for a hotel license under the act
are not less than 6 bed-rooms in
cities and towns, and iu other places
not less than 3. Tliese bed-rooms
must be properly furnished, and
must be exclusive of the rooms occupied by the family; tho houso
must be a well-appointed and sufficient eating house; and (except in
cities and incorporated towns) must
be provided with stabling and feed
for at least six horses. Any person
who has signed a petition against a
license may be heard by the commission. An objection to the character of a person applying for a
license cannot bo entertained unless
3 days' notico has been givon to the
applicant. Tho council of any municipality may employ some person
to appear before the board for it
and oppose the granting of a license. License holders must find
two sureties in §150 each, and must
themselves give bonds for §500,
that the requirements of the law
will be observed. In cities, towns
and incorporated villages the number of licenses shall be one for each
full 250 of tho first 1000 of the
population, and one for each full
500 over the 1000 ; but two hotel
licenses may be granted in any
town or incorporated village having
a population less than 500. In
townships, local municipalities or
parishes, and in places where there
is no municipal organization, the
board shall determine how many
licenses shall bo issued. In incorporated villages, and in townships
and parishes no saloon licenses shall
bo granted. Whenever one-fifth of
the electors of any municipality
(not a city or county) by petition
request a vote as to whether any
liquor shall bo sold, it will bo tho
duty .of the commissioners to make
arrangements for taking a vote on
tho question. This vote is to be
taken iu the mouth of February or
March, and if three-fifths of the
eleetors vote against granting li
censes, no licenses shall bo grantod
within that municipality. Except
in cities and towns whoro grocery
licenses already exist, no license
shall be granted to any premises
where other goods are kept. Any
person holding a shop license who
treats or gives liquor to any person
on the premises shall be liable to a
fine of §50. Licenses granted to
vessels entitle them to furnish liquor
only to bona fino passengers, at
meals, and will not permit the erection of a bar on the vessel. These
are the chief provisions as far os at
present required for public information. If the act should be declared
in force by the courts, wo shall give
the provisions which Mate more
particularly to its observance and
enforcement. Uut judgment has
not yet been pronounced upon the
validity of the act, and there is no
certainty that it ever will become
the law of the Dominion. We
have no doubt, howevor, that tho
three commissioners' for tliis district will act with judgment, and
will endeavor, as far as possible, to
carry out tho wishes of the people
when properly expressed.
Western Terminus or the C.P.R.
(Toronto Globe, Nov. "III.)
Sir :—It is unnecessary for mo ti
point put how important an undertnl*
ini* for this provinco especially, the C.
P, R. has boon, nnd naturally, noxt ti
Iho location of the railway lino wiib
tho location of the terminus, After a
Rood dual of uncertainty finally a responsible minister uf the Crown, Hir
Charles Tupper, frum his placo in thu
House, declaved Port Moody tliu terminus on tho Pacitio fur nil time, and
besides vory properly ridiculed the
idea of tho extension of thu lino furthor west, clearly showing that such
an extension, without any corresponding advantage, would cust between
threo nnd four million dollars. Thia
ens what all aensiblo people oxpected,
and aa a uecuasnry consequence of this
official declaration, a boom in Port
Moody property at onco aet in, aa an
instance of which I may mention tlmt
an high na 830,000 wiib paid for about
80 aores. For a timo all went woll, but
owing lo the tricks and machinations
of a ring of cuto "Victorians, n cry was
got up that Coal Harbor wns going to
bo tlio terminus, uud that the Syndicate would extend the line. Thia report waa considered as of small importance till Van Horno came here, when
lio, instead of repudiating the idea of
a change of tho terminus, assumed an
orrcular air and gave people to understand that tho terminus question was
not yet settled, but promised au early
sett lumen t of tho question by the syndicate. Sinco then speculation and
work of all kinds have ceased, and the
country has been aufforing considerably ; local capitalists are afraid to invest and foreign capitalists aro scared
away, and why 1 Simply because tho
syndicate assumed the power, of changing tho terminus in spite of the government settlement of tho matter.
I wish to ask, can the syndicate for
their own ends act thus 1 Oan they by
their action, without consent of tho
government, and fer no reason except
to make a land grab of 22,000 acroB,
take the terminus from a suitable site
at Port Moody to an unsuitable site at
Coal Harbor ? And if tho govemment
have tho power why do thoy not at
onco interfere, and, by emphatically
declaring that thoy will not allow tho
terminus to bo moved, protect people
who, liko myself and others, liavo invested largely, trusting in their official
declaration. Or do the government
place nu valuo upon their obligations
m this matter 1 I would be glad to be
informed. As a British aubject I have
always been taught to placo thu utmost
confidence in tho official statements of
a cabinet minister, no matter what
party he represented. It is to bo hoped Sir John's government nro not going to destroy that belief, which is
shared with me by thousands of my
fellow citizens. Your obedient ser
eant, A. W. L.

Port   Moody   Incorporation.
(Correspondence of the Columbian.)
A preliminary meeting was hold in
the school room at Port Moody-uu tho
14th instant at 7 v.tt. to take into consideration tho above subject. There
wns a very large attendance, nil the
resident land-owners and business people being present, Mr. A. Monnie
wai called to the chair, and Mr, Mac-
loan was requested to act as soorotary.
Mr. A Williams addressed tho meeting
at considerable length, stating, ns onu
of the citizens who had undortnkon to
call the meeting together, that it was
necessary he should make an explanation why they hnd done so. For the
last twelve months there had been considerable agitation on the subject of
providing some sort of local self-government fur the district around Port
Moody, and as the roads and streets,
sueh ob they are, aro in un almost impassable condition, thoy thought the
time had now arrived for making a
move in the matter, especially-as it
would take until the spring bofore any
benefit could be derived from incorporation, providing a ohsrter is granted
by tho government. There was to be
the same argument to be advanced in
favor of incorporating this town as any
other, in the country, as tho samo work
had to bo done. Ho further stated
that thoy had to keop up a mul for the
benefit uf the travelling public, including H. M. mails and prisoner*, many

The Kogerg-Sterry Murder.
RESOLUTIONS QF PROTEST ON FRIDAY NIGHT.
According to announcement a public
meeting waa held in the court house
Inst Friday night to ventilate the Rog-
gers-Sterry murder cose. At precisely
half-past 7 the mayor took the chair
and the meeting wns called to order.
Mr. J. C. Hughes was chosen secretary. At tho commencement of the
proceedings every available space nut-
side the bar of the court house wus
occupied, and many arrived afterwards
who were nut able to gain admission at
all. The first resolution was moved
by
Mr. J. E. Lord, who spoke at some
length. He was of opinion that we
hod too many lawyers, nud thut their
presenco aud actions were nut calculated to promote tho peace of the community, Tho proceedings in tho Rogers case—the removal of tho case to Victoria—were a slur upon the good namo
of the city which ought not to be allowed to go unnoticed. He thought we
ought at once to petition the government to have the case tried here. The
resolution read as follows:
"That, whereas at the Into assizes held
in tliis city tbe counsel for the prisoner
Ilogers read certain affidavits to tlie effect that, 'owing to the undue publio excitement prevailing, the prisoner could
not get a fail' nnd Impartial trial,' and a
(notion was made to have tho trinl postponed until next assizes; Be it resolved,
That this community repel with scorn
the baso and unwarrantable statements
1 that the prisoner, or any other prisoner,
could havo reuson to doubt thnt he would
receive a fair trial; That a slur and stigma has been attempted to be cast on tins
community totally unjustifiable, and
that at no time was any desire evinced
to resort to violence, but ou the contrary,
the sentiment was tbat British law in its
majesty was to be upheld in its entirety."
This resolution was seconded by Mr.
Jno. Hendry, who declined to make a
speech.
Senator Mclnnes said that long before coming to this province he had
heard that the law was administered
here as well as in any other part of the
empire. During his residence here he
had had ample opportunities for observing the course of justice, and he had
often taken pleasure and pride in the
enviable position occupied by the province in this respect. The occurrences
of the past few days had Bent a thrill
through the whole community. Such
a cold-blooded murder waa enough to
thrill any community. But the exeite-
ment naturally aroused had been taken
advantage of to the fullest txtent by
counsel for the prisoner. He had no
objection to the counsel taking every
fair advantage for tho benefit of his
client; but when that man stood up in
this court ruom and stigmatized the
mayor, himself, and the local representative of the oity as unworthy of
belief, he could not permit it to pass.
It wus to repel such a slur upon the
wholo community that he came here
to-night. If it was not possiblo to get
an impartial jury here, how could onu
be got at Victoria 1 If the people of
this district could not form an impartial judgment because thoy had read
the newspapers, were the Victorians
not a reading people also? It was
nonsense to suy that our jury was not
capable of giving an impartial verdict.
The lawyer hud stood up in tliis ruom,
and, with well dissembled indignation,
characterized as u nparallelled audacity
the affidavits they bad mado. If they
did not know thu value of au oath they
were unworthy of occupying tho posi
u crown colony. In 1862 a worthy
editor, for criticising the actions of a
judge, was thrust into prison in this
very city. But the people rose up in*
dignaiitly* and gave justice a lift, and
the wave moved on till 1807—and the
judge lived to be ashamed uf having
sent to prison tho man who is now our
provincial secretary. In 1867 the administration of justice in Cariboo waa
in such a state that the miners could
not get fair play. An attempt was
made to impose upon tho Canadian
Company, and the gold commissioner
seemed to be lending himself to the
scheme. Tho people, however, were
in sympathy with the company; and
when the soldiers were ordered up, aud
the officials declared that Cariboo
would bB stained with blood, the people stood bythe Canadian Co,, told
them uot to surrender their rights and
promised to buck them up. The troops
wore sent for, but the governor said
not one soldier would go to Cariboo-
he would go himself. He did j*o, and
after a while we saw tlio gold commissioner und utmost overy official iu Cariboo removed! He asked the citizens
of Now Westminster if they would
stand dumb and allow a little bamboo
rouster from Winnipeg to eaat a slur
upun the peoplo! He wished to know
if they ever before heard of a man
hawking nn affidavit about the penitentiary and soliciting the guards to
sign it! Four of the guards thus solicited had refused to sign (cries of
name). He wns not ashamed to give
the name—Willie Keary was one of
them. He believed if the guards bad
perjured themselves,, it would have
been possible to get the witnesses out
of thu country. He did not wish to
cast a -Blur upon that eminent lawyer,
but he reminded him of a certain fish
called the squid. This tish was in the
habit of-'sijnirting out a dirty liquid
when approached, and it was able to
retreat under cover uf its own dirt.
The government hnd given the lie to
these*affidavits by granting the use of
the court house for this meeting. It
hud given the He to these affidavits
also hy refusing to remove the prison*
er whose life was Baid tu have been
endangered, and allowing him to remain iu the gaol. But he had a piece
of advice for the government. Let it
Bend up to Harrison River, to some of
the Indian burying grounds there, and
get one uf tho uutive graven images;
let this be adorned with a wig and
gown, and it would make quite as
worthy n representative of Ihe crown
as the one that had been sent up from
Victoria.
Mr. Jas, Kennedy, in response to
loud calls, said he didn't come to make
a speech. He must say, however, be
wns nstoiiished to find thut after all
the hard things said no one had mentioned tho name of the person accused.
Let the name be given, bo that people
would havo no doubt ub to the person
meant. Mr. Kennedy was choked off
with uproar, hisses, and cries of "put
him out."
Capt. Peele said he had a resolution,
but before reading it he hud.a statement to make. He had been one of
the chief actors in the matter of the
affidavits. He tirst ascertained that
the affidavits would be recognized in
court. Theu he saw the mayor, Senator Mclnnes, nnd Mr. Cunningham,
and found them quite willing to make
tho affidavits. Mr. Bole said he could
not draw up these affidavits ut hia
(Peelo'a) request, but could at the re*
quoBt of the persons making thom. He
then got the three men to go to Mr.
Hole's offico and make tha affidavits.
(Mr. Peele here read the affidavits and
then proceeded). It wob not intended
that Mr. Bole should nppear in court
with these affidavits at utl, but the
matter camo up so unexpectedly that
lie whs forced to go. When thu case
tirst came up early in the day it wns
put off until 8 p. in. He never supposed for a moment thnt it would be
heard sooner, but they learned by
mere accident that it had been again
changed In 4 o'clock. The affidavits
wore hardly ready and they had to
rush to Mr. Bole and have him hurry
to the court house with the papers. If
it had not been for this change he
could have obtained several other affidavits from leading citizens. Now, if
it had happened that he had been procuring evidence to save the life of a
fellow man, and the time of closing
the case had been changed without a
word of warning, the man might have
been tried and sentenced and hung
without any opportunity for presenting evidence of his innocence. If tbe
time had come when the affidavits ot
three representative citizens could not
be tuken against those of two obscure
persons, one of whom was too cowardly
to arrest the murderer of his fellow*
guard, the people of this city had better sell out as quickly as possible. He
then rend the following resolution:

PROSPECTS OF THE C. P. R. THROUGH TRADE.

of the most reliable and best informed
of Canadian commercial journals, says:
The semi-official announcement has
been recently made by Mr. Collingwood
Schreiber, that the Canadian Pacifio
Kailway will, by November, 1885, be
available for a through train from Montreal to- the Pacifio terminus. Leaving
it to others to consider what influence
the opening of the new route may exercise on the political and national future
of Canada, we may endeavor to show the
commercial development and possible
changes in the channels of trade which
may be expected to come about as a consequence. Along with the opening of
the railway, however, must be considered the effect of the expansion of shipping, mining, and lumbering operations
in British Columbia which must follow
the establishment ot an entirely new opportunity for reaching the markets of the
northwest u-rritoriea and the eastern
provinces,
TRAFFIC BETWKKN ASIA AND K17HOPK.
As regards the prospect of an extensive through traffic between Asia and
Kuropo, which may be regarded as an
essential factor towards rendering the
enterprise a paying one for the com-
pauy, pending tbe development of a
greater volume of local business than
can toon be looked for, it may be pointed out that the Canadian Pacific will enjoy exceptional advantages in competition
with other transcontinental highways.
These are: A shorter distance to operate,
easier, grades, and the existence of au
inexhaustible supply of the finest steam
coal at the Pacifio terminus. Iu respect
of the first poiut, tho comparative distances in favor of the Canadian Hue may
be stated, with a fair degree of accuracy, ul follows:—
MILES
Coal llurbnr to Montreal  !
N.Y., via Montreal.. I
Sitt and entirely free from duty. Tbis
ifference constitutes in itself so great
on economical advantage in favor of commerce centering at the Canadian Pacific
port that San Francisco may find her
maintenance of a line of steamships to
Hongkong, Yokohama, or Sidney troublesome after tlie Canadian Pacific Railway,
with its connecting line of ocean steamers on the Pacific, is once fairly in operation, unless Indeed the outward voyages
of such be made via Vancouver Island.
In any case, the logic of coming events
points to tlie development of a great
commercial port at Coal Harbor, which
will in due time become a point whence
the products of Asia may be distributed
over the Pacifio Cout, and perhaps over
all North America,
ADVANTAGES 0* COAL HARBOR.
Another important point is the attractions which the coasts of British Colombia and Washington Territory offer to
sailing vessels arriving on the Pacific
Coast with Asiatic or European freight,
One of the essential conditions to the
building up of a strong shipping business
is tbat facility should exist for obtain*
ing return cargoes. From this point of
view, Coal Harbor w ill enjoy aa advantage over San Francisco, owing to the
immense extent of the valuable and
largely virgin forests which cover a region once designated somewhat contemptuously by m prominent Canadian
statesman as a "sea of mountains." A
sailing ship arriving at the Canadian
port will not have occasion to go far for
return freight or suffer delay in obtaining it, Bhe may either sail right under
the hoppers at Nanaimo to receive coals
in her hold, proceed to a British Columbia mill to load lumber or spars, or drop
down In a single tide to Puget Sound;
where even a larger supply of the latter
freight awaits hor. At tho present time,
numerous sailing vessels which arrive at
San Francisco are compelled to proceed,
in ballast, to British Columbia or Washington Territory, a distance of 800 miles
(generally iucreased to 1,600, owing to
the necessity of giving the rook-bound
coast, without a single good harbor, a
sufficiently wide berth), in order to obtain a fresh oargo; she cannot, therefore,
hope to draw away the increase of shipping arriving at the Pacific coast which
the opening of the Canadian line should
induce. Even in the preseut day the
forests oCBritish Columbia furnish many
a shipload annually of the finest lumber
and spars for transportation to all parts
of the globe, to places indeed as widely
apart as Hongkong and Marseilles or si
Singapore and Rio de Janeiro.
VARIED AKD DISTINCT RESOURCES,
The local development that must arise
from the opening of the railway by the
building up of iuterprovincial trade is a
feature that must not be lost sight of.
Mr. Van Home, in his recent report, declares that "every part of the line, from
Montreal to the Pacific coast, will pay."
Why? Because he has come to apprciate
the fact that the different parts of the
Dominion possess varied and distinct
natural resources, which will enable
them to interchange products and manufactures to mutual advantage. He has
personally satisfied himself, he says,
that the forests which the line penetrates after crossing the Rocky Mountains "alone will furnish large and remunerative traffic for the railwav." He
tells of trees which are eight and nine
feet in diameter, measured seven feet
abovo the ground, and pronounces the
supply of this raw material to be "practically inexhaustible." He says, "there
are many other sources of traffic and
wealth, the chief among them being the
coals aud fisheries. The richuess of
the fisheries is almost beyond belief."

" That the affidavits of Senator Mclnnes, Jas, Cunningham, M. P. P., and his
worship the mayor of the city, that were
laid before the court, have our complete
and thorough endorsement."
Thia resolution was seconded by Mr.
S. H. Webb, who said that wherever
he hud been he always understood that
a lawyer was a gentleman. He would
nsk if the counsel for tho prisoner in
this cuso hnd acted the part of a gentleman, or had stood up for impartial
justice! It was his (the speaker's)
opinion that he was acting for his own
pocket. He had not only -perjured
himself, but had insulted thu whole
community. There was a penitentiary
here, and it would go abroad that there
wus nothing here but penitentiary
birds to try prisoners.
Air. Jno. Houdiy moved the noxt
tions they held.   This would be taken  resolution, which was seconded by Mr
a precedent, and hereafter all that
it would be necessary for counsel to
do would bo to move for a change of
vonue. Many of the citizens wero present nt the trial, and he must say it
was the must extraordinary farce ho
hud ever seen enacted in tho iiiiino of
justice. The great mistake was in thu
magistrate not hearing tho case at first,
without consulting tho lawyers. Wo
had too many lawyers, and thoy had
-no right to interfere in the course of
justice. Another grent mistake was in
importing a vordunt lawyur from Victoria, as representative of the crown,
to plunge the province into hundreds
of dollars of costs. Formerly the government had employed local men to
represent the crown, and lie believed
they had generally given satisfaction.
Mr. Jus. Orr, M. P. P., said ho
vary much regretted that it wns necessary for the peoplo to assemble hero
to-night. Ho did not consider the
affidavits filed bv the prisoner's counsel represented the state of feeling in
this community, and he had fully oxpected that when tho counter affidavits
were read thu trial would proceed. He
wus sorry also that (lie person who had
come up from Victoria ostensibly to
advance tho ends of justice had not
dune his duty, but accepted tho affidavits without a protest. He cordially
approved of tho resolution. i
Mr. J, C. Armstrong said this wob
uot the first time in the history of
British Oolumbia wliun people had to
help un the cause of justice, Sume of
those present would remember occurrences whioh took place whon thii wus
Thos. Ovens, and rood as follows
"That the mode of procedure in reference to the preliminary examination of
tho prisoner Rogers was in the opinion
of this meeting contrary to the spirit and
usage of Britisli law,"
Mt. J. C. Armstrong said lie wished
to explain why it was not in ni.-c-.rd-
nnco with law. If this crimo had beeu
committed nt Burrard Inlet or anywhere else, tho inagiHirato would have
heard the evidence and sent the man
np for trial. But iu this case the lawyers had interfered, and we had the
extraordinary spectacle of a magistrate
postponing the trial to accommodate
tho lawyers.
Capt, Poole aaid the danger of delay
iu this case arose from thu fact that
the witnesses hud not been bound
ovor, and might get out of the country
ut any time. It wns also a fnct that,
according to British justice, this man
could not havo been detained in prison. His friends might havo taken
him out on n writ of I,r-ber,s corpus,
and ho might havo escaped.
Votes of thanks were given lo the
government for thu uie of tho court
house, to tho gentlemen whose affidavit-, had been procured to contradict
thoso in favor of the prisoner, and to
the chairman aud secretary of the
meeting.
All the resolutions were carried
nem. con,, and the meeting was very
enthusiastic. Tho speakers wero >•
quontly cheered, but good order ..as
maintained. The meeting broke up
nbout 8.30, after giving three cheers
for the queen.

Having less mileage to cover, on the
whole distance, the Canadian Pacific will
havo an immense advantage in competition for Asiatic through freight, as well
as for business to be carried on between
the Atlantic and Pacific oceans contributed from points in the United States,
In addition, It may be expected that the
Imperial government will avail Itself of
tbe facilities which id direct a route, exclusively through British territory, will
afford for dispatching troops and the immense quantities of supplies for them
that are required to be sent out to distant stations.
THE MINKllAL DEPOSITS.
As regards the mineral deposits of
British Columbia, it is necessary to state
tbat the extent of the wealth of tbat
province in "blaok diamonds" has by no
means yet been ascertained or even fully
investigated. The rocks of the extensive coal areas which Vancouver Island
possesses are certainly known to extend
from the vicinity of Cape Mudge to
within fifteen miles of Victoria, a distance of 130 miles, and these are of the
cretaceous, not tertiary, age. The product of the oldest mines, situate at Nanaimo, is well known to be a valuulile
bituminous coal, superior for all practici)
purposes to any coals yet met with on
the Pacific coast, Vancouver Island uml
has for thirty years been in large demand
at San Francisco for steamship and do-
meatic purposes, notwithstanding the
hostile protective tariff of the United
States, and it ranks with the West Hartley coal. On an average nearly two-
thirds of the sea-Win' Pacific coal received annually by California cornel from
Vancouver Island, Indeed, tho output
from the pits at Nanaimo roso from
81,000 tons in 1874 to 282,000 in 1882,
whi h Is a remarkable showiug. Tbe
Americana have, of course, doue tlieir
best to discover a substitute source uf
supply south of the 49th parallel, but
hitherto without success. Coal formations of the tertiary age cover great
tracts of the mainland opposite, and have
been worked in Washington Territory
for San Francisco consumption, In places
where thoy occur In thick accessible beds;
but coal has not yet been worked, or
even bond for, on the adjacent mainland of British Columbia, owing to tho
fact that the before-mentioned tariff has
operated aa a hindrance to the profitable
development of tho resources known to
exist. There ia further an Limeme area
in tho south-eastern portion of the proviuce, « hid. will be traversed by the railway, that has not ao far beeu explored
for coal at all.
HOUTIS COMPARED.
In comparing the position that Coal
Harbor (the western terminus of the
Canadian Paoifio Railway) will have in
competition with San Franciaco as the
seaport whence various Hues of steamships engaged in tho Asiatic and Australian trade will radiate, It Is most Important to remember that the latter muat
import from Britiih Columbia or Washington Territory, or yet more distant
sources of aupply, every ton of fuel that
suoh Bteameis require for the outward
voyage, while whatever quantity Is
brought from Nanaimo or other foreign
Saints for the purpose Is chargeable with
uty in addition. Steamers arriving at
Coal Harbor, howevor, will have an unlimited supply of the best kind of fuel
available, almost from the month of the
even Winnipeg, may before long draw
their chief supplies of lumber and coal
from the Pacific slope, while fresh salmon
and other fish from the Fraser river and
the gulf of Georgia, together with such
fruits as cannot be grown to advantage
in the prairie region, will in a few yean
be articles of common consumption in
the territories and Manitoba. In return,
the prairie farmer will be able to furnish
the hardy miner, tbe industrious lumberman, and the skilful fruit grower of
British Colnmbia with tlie "staff of life"
in highest perfection, together with
pork, beef, hides, and wool, Iuterprovincial intercourse will thus become
highly advantageous, and should do
much, not only to stimulate the develop*
ment of the latent resources that Canada
possesses iu such great variety, but to
Increase the home and foreign trade of
hor merchants.

about her, and took up the newspaper,
which people in the country have to
read in the evening instead of tlir
morning; but she did not read muoh. ;
She waB diverted by the talk. '^Crinoline' is certainly going out,1' said Ellen, "I heard it from the best shops.
Look at mine, it is quite small; hardly
to be called crinoline at all. This is
the very newest, from the Grand
Magaseens du Louvre, You seo yours
are twice as big," Ellen added, making a little piroutto to exhibit tlio
diminished proportions of her hoops.
The Miss Vernon-Hidgways looked
down upon their own skirts with unquiet eyes,
"Tho Frenoh nre always so exaggerated," said Miss Matilda. "Ignorant
persons have such strange ideas. They
think really nice people in England
take their fashions straight out of
Paris, but that is quite a mistake. It
haa alwaya to be modified by English
good taste—"
Ellen interrupted with a littlo
shriek. "Oh, good taste! Vou
should just hear how tliey speak of
that abroad. Sometimes I could have
cried. Thoy say nu woman knows
how to dress herself in England. And
when I come back and see the dreadful things that are worn hero— This
is pretty," Ellon continued, drawing
attention to a portion uf her dress,
"Thu Empress wore ono just thu same
nt a ball."
"Dear Elleu," said Miss Matilda,
"und you wear it at a little family
party! That shows the difference. I
am sure it was done just to please us—
to let ub soe what the new fashions
are, in your unselfish way, dear."
And Catherine laughed behind the
newspaper. Tho honors of the occasion were to the old Bisters after all.
In the meantime conversation of
more serious import, though scarcely
more elevated, was going on round
the table in the dining-room, where
young Asntun had got the loud, though
none of tho others looked upon him
with over-favorable eyes. There was
no doubt that he was a very handsome
fellow; and both Harry and Edward
had that instinctive sense that he wus
a competitor likely to put them on
their metal which is supposed to influence the bosoms of women alone.
They thought (instinctively, and each
iu their different ways) that ho must
be a coxcomb. They divined that he
was the sort of fellow whom women
admired, and scorned bim for it—-ns
women, porhaps, now and then indulge in a little sneer at a gentleman's
beauty. But by-and-by he touched a
chord which vibrated moro or loss in
all thoir bosoms. He began to talk of
the City, for which country men of
business have a natural reverence. He
revealed to them that ho himself waa
on the Stock Exchange, and incidentally let fatt an anecdote here and there
of the marvellous incidents, tho fairy
tales of commerce, that wure taking
place iu those magic regions every day;
uf men who woke in the morning with
the most moderate means at their
command, and before night were millionaires. They gathered close about
him as he added auccdote to unecdote,
Edward Vernon wns like tinder, prepared fur the fire; for all his thoughts
for sume timo past had beet) directed
in that way. And young Morridew
was launching forth upon life rather
more lavishly than was consistent with
his income and prospects. Harry was
the least interested of the threo; but
even to lum the idea uf making a fortune in a few hours, und being able to
retire to the country tu give himself
up to doga uud horses, instead uf going down tu the bank every morning,
was a beatific suggestion. The prosont writer doos not pretend to be able
to inform tho reader exactly how it
wns, ur in fuvor of which schemes,
tlmt the pout uf tin- Stock Exchange
managed tu influence these rustic imaginations, but he did so. He filled
their minds with nn impationco uf
their own slow business and its mild
percentages, even when he ueumed tu
praiso it,
"Perhaps it does feol.alow wurk; I
can't say. I think it is a vast deal
mure wholesome. It is very hnrd tu
keep your head steady, you know,
when yuu feel that the chances of an
hour or two may make you the richest
man in England,"
"Or the poorest, perhaps," said Edward, more with the idea of subduing
himself than checking this flow of instruction.
"Ye-os," anid Ashton, indifferently;
"no doubt thnt'B on the cards; but it
might not to be if your broker has a
head un his shoulders. About the
worst that can happen, if you take
proper precautions, is that you're no
worse than you were to start with,
and botter luck next time. I don't
approve the 'gain or lose it nil' system. But what will Miss Vernon say
if we stay hore talking simp utl the
evening?" ho added.
There was never a mure clever con
elusion; it was like the exciting closo
of an net iu the theatre, fur he cuuld
u.it bo persuaded tu begin ngniu,
When they wont reluctantly into the
drawing-room, Ellon thought hur Algernon hnd taken too much wino; and
oven Edward, who never offondod tho
proprieties in any way, bad a curious
fight in his eyes, and did not henr
when he was spoken to. But Catherine Vernon, for her part, did not
notice anything except the filial kind-
ness of young Roland, and tho sympathy and understanding which shone
iu hii eyes.
"I would not speculate if I were
you," aaid Ashton. "What would be
thu good? Yuu are very well off as
you an. Yuu are making your fortune ateadily—far better than if you
' did it by a successful roup. Yes, yes;
I ean understand that a man should
desire a little more excitement, and
rebel against tho monotony of n quiet
life; but not you, Vernon, if you'll
excuse my Baying ao. You don't go
in for any sort uf illegitimate pursuit.
You don t play or bet; you have nu
claim upon you that you want extraordinary means of supplying—"
"Bow can you tell all that?" said
Edward Vernon. "Do ynu think
life's ao easy a business that you can
wad it off from tho surface, and make
■ure that everything Is aa it aeemB?"
"I don't say that. Of oourse, I go
upon appearances. I can understand
that.pwMH you are tired of it—"
"Tired of it!"   He twirled hia stick
violently in liis hand, hitting at the
rusty bramble branches nnd gorse-
buihn that bordered the Common as
If they were his enemies.   "1 suppose
ouo is apt to tiro uf anything that
lasts and novor varies," he cried, .with
a forced laugh. "Yes, I am tired of
it. Quiet life and safe business, and
the hope of making a fortune, ns you
call it, steadily, in twenty or thirty
years— Good life! Twenty or thirty
years! Only think of the number of
days in that, one after the other, one
exactly like the othsr. I begin to feel
as if I should welcome anything to
break the monotony—crime itself.
"That means, old fellow," Baid Ashton, soothingly, "nervea and nothing
moro."
Edward laughed out a laugh which
was not harmonious with the soft dullness of the autumnal atmosphere. "I
have no nerves, nor tastes nor inclinations, nor any mind of my own," ho
aaid. "1 do what is the right thing to
do. Though I am sick of it, I never
show that. Nobody here has tho
slightest idea that I was evor impatient or irritable or weary in my life."
Ashton looked at him with some
curiosity, but touk no further notico.
■'Doos Misa Vernon," he said, "take
any share iu tho business uf the bank
—I mean, in the work, in the regulations?"
"Miss Vernon,"said Edward, "takeB
a share iu everything that is going on
around hor, it does not matter what.
Sho has been so loug used tu bo nt the
hend of everything that sho thinks it
her natural placo; and, as Bhe is old
and a woman, it stands to reason—"
"But she is a very intelligent woman, and she must havo a great denl
of exporionco."
"Tlio uxpertence uf a little cuuntry
town, and of steady business, as yuu
call it—uh, she has all that. But put
your own views before her, ur suggost
oven the advantage of tho circulation
of money, quick turning over, and
balances of losses and gains—"
"I ean uuderatand that," said Ashton. "You don't appreciate tho benefits uf tho Conservative clement, Vornon. But for you and your steady-
going banks, how could we operate at
all? The money must bo somewhere.
Wo can't play with counters unly in
this game.
"Thero was no quostion of counters," said Edward; "Wo have the
money in uur hands. It scorns to me
that you and I Bhould change .places;
yuu to do the steady business here,
and please Aunt Catherine—who has
taken a great fancy to you, you muat
know—I, to watch tho tide, how it
comes and how it goes."
"There might ho worse arrangements," Ashton said, with a laugh;
but he added quickly, meeting a keen,
sudden glance from Edward, "if yuu
could transfer to me your training, and
I mine tu you, I am counted rather
bold sometimes, you must know," he
added, after a moment, returning that
look. They talked with great apparent readiness and openness, but with
a curious dread of mutual observation
going un under the current of their
talk all the time.
"So muoh the better," said Edward,
"so lung aa you know when to hold
in."
They were going aluug the Bide of
the Common between the Grange and
the Vernonry. It was Sunday afternoon—a dull day, tho sky hanging
low, the green parts uf tho Common
uery green, glistening with wetness,
the gorse and brushwood vory brown
and faded. Nobody was about ou this
day of leisure. Even the Blow country cart, the farmer's shnndry, the
occasional roll of a carriage was absent
frum tho silent road. There wero no
nurao maids and children from Redborough picking tlieir way along the
side path. Captain Morgan, fueling
his rheumatism, had retired to his
chimnoy-corner; the young men had
it all to themselves. Ashton hud been«|
lunching at the Grange. He was on
the evo of going back to town to business, from which ho declared ho had
beon absent far too long. Tho object
of his visit wna not vory clear tu any
one; he had left hia grandparents fur
years without showing so much interest in them.
But, whatever his motive had been,
his expedition had not been without
fruit. He had discovered a new and
wealthy voin woll worth working, mid
lighted a fire which, uo doubt, wuuld
light up still further illuminations iu
some inflammable spirits. No one had
received him more warmly than Edward Vernon, but ho waa leas ensy to
make out* than thu others. Ho was
less simple; his life did nut correspond
with tho betrayals uf his conversation,
whereas neither Harry Vernon nor his
brother-in-law had anything to betray.
What was evident, ut least, was that
Catherine Vernon smiled upon the acquaintance which had been formed bu
rapidly between her nephew and thu
stranger. She called Edward "your
cousin" tu Ashton, then laughed and
apologized, explaining that where
there wore su many cousins it was
difficult tu remember that her relations
were not Edward's too. When Ashton
replied, "There is connection enough
tu justify tho name if it is agreeable
to Vornon," there cuuld be no doubt
tlmt it was ut least agreeable to her,
Sho smiled upun them from her window us thoy went out together, waving hor hand. And no foolish mothor
could have boen nio«o unaware than
Catherine that the knowledge that she
was there, watching with tender looks
uf affection the twu figures ns thoy
went along, was to Edward irksome
boyond measure. Ho felt no charm
uf love in the luok, but substituted
suspicion fur tenderness, and behoved
that she was watching them, keeping
them in sight ns far as her eyes oould
carry, to spy uut all thoy did, and
make for herself an explanation of
every gesture. Ho would not oven
havo twirled his stick and out down
tho brambles but in a momentary Ht of
furgutfulness. When thoy got beyond
hor range he breathed more freely,
but even then was not without a recollection that she hod her opera-glasses
at hand, and might, through them, be
watching his demeanor still,
"Let us go this way," he said, turning intu tho road which slanted away
on tho nearer side of the Vernonry,
binding out into the npen country and
brown fields.
Ashton hesitated a moment. "I
am nut sure that I am not expected at
homo.   It is my lost day," he snid,
"Hume iB a kind of irons," said
Edward — "hnndouffs, anklo - chains.
One is always like an unhappy cucka-
too on a perch. Any little attempt nt
flight is always pulled back,"
"I don't think that is myoxpori*
etico. My uid people are vory indulgent; but then I am a mere visit-r.
Hume does not mean much to me,"
said Ashtuii, If he had been in the
presenco of any lady ho would have
sighed as ho snid this; being iu absolute freedom with one of his own
kind, he smiled, and it was Edward
who sighed.
"There is such a thing as having
tuo much of it," he said, "What!
suffer frum is want of air. Don't you
perceive it? There is no atmosphere;
every breath has beon breathed over
again.    Wo want vmitilatiun.
