An Impudent Fraud!
When, in 1881, tbe Legislature
nut Mr. DeCosmos on the ill-advis»d
mission to • England, it wm for the
■pacific purpose, and no other, of
presenting and personally supporting
a petition. THftfjiitition was 'carefully prepare}, and passed section liy
section through the House, and beyond the ground touched in it he
had no right to go. But what did
he dot That petition made no re
ferenee whatever to the missiHilary's
gulf ferry hobby; and yet we find
him making that a prominent item,
a cardinal corditinn, in the liill of
particulars  which   h« officially pri
\ sented and urged upon the attention
of   Lord  Kimberley!     We   quote
I from tiie official document:—
4. That an flxieiiiinn railway he eon
I slructed between Port Moody and
7 nuch point ou English buy that may be
I', deemed most suitable for a binding
!jfor a railway furry between English
bay and Nanatmo;
5. That an atlicient railway furry be
established   hot ween    Nanaimo   and
floimi point ou English bay as may l-o
selected for the western extension In
Port Moody;
6. That the extension and ferry be
completed and put iu operation by the
1st July, 1885.
Now, by what authority dirt M
UeOoimoH import tliat gulf ferry
business into the easel Tf lie did it
on his own re:qioi:sibility and without any authority or instructions
from tho Provincial Government,
then lias he been guilty of, a most
flagrant violation of tbe trust reposed in him, for which it is the
boundon duty of the Government to
call him to account If he did it on
the authority and instructions of the
Government, then would tbe language we have used towards him be
applicable to the Ministers, and it
would become the duty of the Legislature to call them to it strict account
ifm* conduct constituting the grossest
possible breach of privilege. A vory
'ittle reflection will serve to show that
'.the position we have taken in this
[matter is not in extreme one. Just
lonsider for a moment what would
nave been tha elect, had tho peii-
ion, as it came before tbe Legista
u<*e, contained tho clauses above
noted. Would tbe three members
)0r New Westminster have dared to
'Support a petition to tbe Queen,
in-aying her to came the Dominion
government to rob the Mainland
f the railway terminus? Weak and
Hiant as they were, tbey would
;carcely have ventured ho far lis that,
'hen, again, tlie placing of this item
i the list of Columbia's demands
inst have militated very materially
gainst her cause being entertained
the Dominion Government. It
vol veil, at tbe very least, the ex-
euditiire of yet another million—
at is to say, assuming the practi-
ibilitv of the thin;:. Assuming its
npracticuhility, iti influence would
I? sti'l more fatal. Iu any case, it
as enough to kill the petition, if
jlnisted upon, ami we way he very
ire Mr. DeCosmoa would most
reuuously insist upon bis hobby.
,tideed, it will  be remembered that
cume out at the public meetii.g
lehi  In  this City to protest against
lie mission, I hat Mr. DeCosmos had
■sen preparing himself  for months
i this very point,an) had provided
limself  with a trunk-full of maps
|;iii!iii,ii*» bis Utopian gulf crossing ;
id it-was predicted  by one uf th**
leakers at that meeting that, if Mr.
■jftCnsmos   went   to   England,   In*
|inld be sure to air hi* hobby,  But
Iliudy   ever   itiiticiputed   that   ho
lulii have tbo asU»ui.diiiy.tmdncity
■import that hobby into ll.-Millioial
Liiinent  he wns ciminiisKinied to
|sei.t at lift Colonial Ollice. Under
circumstitnces,  the   very  least
At tbe Now Westminster members,
■o allowed themselves to he led no
i ustmy as to vote for that unfor-
■ate mission, can now do is to take
Ifurl* opportunity of moving iu

tions given to Mr. DeCosmos, in
order tliat it may he ascertained as
soon ns possible who is responsible
for the audacious breach of the privileges of, Parliament and impudent
fraud upon tbe country. Of course
we are aware that theoretically the
Ministers can alone be responsible to
tbe people. Who will move in this
matter? It is one which concerns
every member of the House and the
whole country j but it has occurred
to us that, under all the circumstances, it would be especially littii g
that the address for these returns
should be moved by Mr, McGillivray
uud seconded by Mr. Harris. Tbey
especially owe it to their constituents
and to themselves to do this.
Abstemious Men.
The most successful thinkers are
usually frugal in their habits of eaiiug
and drinking; yet this is not always
true, as in the case of Dickens aud
Bayard Taylor; but tbusts men died
long before iheir time. Careful living
would, without dmiht, have enabled
thorn to extend their lives many years,
and to give/much riper production* to
the world. ■ Sir Isaac Newton was a
close stu'djSnfcj and lived tu be more
than fourscore yeaw of age. Ho used
to say that he could not think clearly
unlii more than live hour** had elapsed
after a meal. The mm-.', eminent men
of our time are vory careful livers,
A. T. Stewart, the merchant prince
<if America, lived frugally, and Jny
Ciiuld, the richest man ou toe continent
to-day j is .-.aid to be the uiu&tah« tenuous.
Oummocltire Vanderbilt was exciitplary
iu this respect, as wore Horace Greeley,
Abraham Liiiaoln, Salmon 1'. Chase,
Edivard 13 vol's tt, aud John C. Calhoun.
Peoplo cannot eat their loaf and keep
it at the same time. They cannot
squander their vital force in high living
and continue togivo their best elturts
to the world. A man ought to be
able t'i write his best after lie ii 70, for
then he has had experience enough to
show him how in begin (olive. When
we think of such mon its Htimboldt,
Longfellow, and Whittier, doing tlieir
beat work iu the evening uf their lives,
we feel conscious of a lack iu the
abridged existence of DiokeiiB, Poe
and Byron. We fuel satisfied when
muii die of old me; but mourning
nion.iry lingers long at the grave of
utmins cut down by dissipation beforo
if! time.—Health,

Garfield's Tomb.
It is not generally known tlmt n detachment of United States infantry is
still derailed to guard tlie vault wherein
lie tho remains uf President Garfield.
It is intended to continue this watchfulness until tho body is deposited in
the ground. Through tho grated door
of the vault can be seen tho elegant
casket given by thu Masonic brethren
Covered with beautiful flowers, kept
fresh by loving hands, it is still visited
daily by hundreds of people- many of
wboin eagerly sock tlie'.cnst-oirblnHRnhia
as mementoes. Near tlie vault is the
Bhelter-Uo(iBQ, ami on (be otberiide of
thu lake the while leu's of thu soldiers
are pitched. At the base of the bill,
upon which tbe monument is to bu
placed, n glasshouse i* erected, enclosing the funeral car, still trimmed with
immortelles and the trapninsfi of woe.
Tt is related that only tho other day
an aged couple visited t'-e vault, and
asked to ho permitted to take a few
flowers from tho eollin. Thoy were
very much disappointed when told that
the vault could nut bn opened, nnd
said thuy were from th* South, and
had always been rebels, but tint Garfield's death hud changed thoir feelings,
and tbey had journeyed far for the
privilege of standing by his tomb.
       .+■	
The days uf singular bequests are
not over. A lady—Mrs, Arabella
King, of Kentish town-receutly do-
ceased, lias Imijueathed to the etiureh-
wardens of St. fjem-gu'e in the Mast
£300, the interest from which is to bu
doveted to the purchase of coats and
chinks for thu benefit of poor old people attending the parish church. The
si me testator leaves £100, the dividends
from w.bicb are to be applied to provide
"a dinner of roast beef and plum pudding evory Christ mm day for children
attending tbe parish church." Astipulation is that inch dinner is not to
include any alcoholic drink.
Several interesting nrchiuolitnic.il
"finds" in Europe are reported. Near
Caltiinitutta, Sicily, several caverns
have been found, which are evidently
burial places dating from the period
when the ancient Sicilians had already
been ousted by tlie Italian tribes, hut
before tbe Greek colonization bad bo-
gun. At Nnrdrup, Denmark, the ro-
reiuaius of seven human I iodic.* havu
beep found under a few toot of pumice
stone, numerous bronze objects, gold
rings. Uoinan ghosts, mosaics, glass
heads, etc., being also ditcovcrnd
■iiiioiil' tlio remains.

Attacking (lie Bench.
Onca move has Mr. Walkem allowed personal pique to lead liitn into making nn unwarrantable attack
upon the Judges—one which all
right-thinking persons, must regret.
In tlio Legislature, on Monday, Mv.
Mara niovetl for nn order of the
House for a return showing the number of convictions quashed during
the year 1881, on Habeas corpus,
certiorari, or appeal, hy whom quashed, and on what grounds. When
such motions are made, it is unusual
for Ministers, unless resisting, to
speak; but on this occasion Mr.
Walkem seized upon the opportunity
for the obvious purpose of making
an attiick upon tho Bench. Agreeing
to the motion, he said (wo now quote
from the Standard's report):—"A
"number of convictions had been
"quashed, nob on their merits at all
"and criminals had been let loose—
"emancipated lie might say—on the
"merest technical objections. The
"want of u seal or some other defect
"in the conviction, of no real bearing
"on the merits of the case, had defeated the ends of justice." The
Colonist, in its more circumstantial
report, says :—-"Hon. Mr. Walkem
"said-fl number of convictions before
"Justices of the Peace had been
"quashed on trivial grounds—such
"as the absence of a dot to an "i" or
"a cross to a "t." Now, we hare
conceived it to be our duty more
than once to complain of the tendency on the part of the Judges, or
some of them, to quash convictions
upon technical grounds. Indeed, to
such an extent did the opinion prevail that a very strong petition was
sent to the Government upon the
subject, and we believe a bill is now
before the House requiring every
conviction that may be carried before
the Judges to be tried on its merits.
But, at the same time, one cannot
help feeling that an Attorney-General, a Minister of Justice, should be
extremely guarded in making statements reflecting upon the administration of Justice, fur which ho is, in
fact, responsible to the country. Ho
of all men, is supposed to endeavor
rather to soften the asperity of popular feeling, and, us far ns may be
consistent with a due regard for truth
nnd honor, shield the Bench, at the
same time applying whatever remedial measures may ho within reach.
We contend, therefore, that even if all
Mr. Walkem said on Monday were
true—and we regret to be compelled
to admit that there is fur too much
truth in it—such language ill-became
one occupying tbo position of First
Minister, and that tho Minister of
Justice. Although nothing but truth
should be spoken, there may be circumstances in which all the truth
ought not to be spoken. But Mr.
Walkem undoubtedly indulged in
exaggeration, if, indeed, ho did not
actually exceed to bounds of truth,
when asserting that these Judges
have been guilty of quashing convictions on account of the absence of a
dot to an "i" or a cross to a "t."
Queer things have undoubtedly been
done in the name of justice in this
British Columbia of ours; nor are
we likely to be accused of an undue
tendency to screen the Judges or to
hesitate about censuring whatever
we believe to he wrong; but we have
no hesitation whatever in predicting
that the returns very properly asked
for by Mr. Mara will show Mr.
Walk em's extreme statement to have
been wholly unjustified by fact. It
is impossible to conceal tho fact that
the tendency of such attacks upon
the Bench by such a man in such a
placo is to degrade und impair that
dignity which it is bis Mpecitlduty to
magnify and uphold. If Mr. Walkem finds it impossible to rise above
hii personal feelings of vindictive-
uess towards the Judges, he ought to
resign his ollice, and not inflict upon
the country any more of the ill-con-
sequences of tlie extremely unhappy
relations gubsiflting between hira and
them.

In former articles we endeavored
to point out the glaring inequalities
in the present basis of representation
in tho Legislature. These inequalities are all the moro palpable, viewed
in tho light of the census returns.
The more immediate object of the
present article is to present the case
of this District, and urge the necessity of giving it at least an approximation to what its population and
importance justly entitle it. The
District of New Westminster (wo
include the city) has very nearly
one-fourth of the voting power of
the whole Province. It has nearly
one-thud of tho population. It furnishes about one-half of Ihe entire
exports. And yet it has loss than
one-eighth of the representation in
the Legislature! To compare it with
some other Districts, New Westminster, with a voting power of one
thousand, sends three representatives
to the Legislature—equal to one
representative for every 333, while
Kootenay,-.with, ft voting power of
fifteen, sends two representatives to
the Legislature—equal to one to 7&
voters ! Taking actual population,
how does the matter standi New
Westminster has a population of
15,417, or 5,139 to each representative; Victoria (City and District) has
ft population of 7,301 and elects six
representatives—equal to one representative to 1.217 people. It will
thus be seen that, taking population
as the basis, Victoria has more than
four times the representation that
New Westminster has, and taking
the voting power as the basis, Kootenay has about forty-three times the
representation! The disproportion is
simply monstrous ! The present Government stands pledged to a readjustment, if not also an increase of
the representation. This work would,
or at least should, have been undertaken sooner, were it not that the
last session of the parliamentary
term was considered the most fitting
time for such a change. Whether
the present Ministry intend to keep
faith with the country in this matter
or not remains to be seen; but the
fact of no allusion having been made
to it in the "speech from the throne"
ban given rise to some doubt, We
scarcely think, however, that they
will venture to disregard public opinion and the demands of justice to
that extent. But, even should the
Government decline to bring in a
general measure for redistribution,
it saoms hardly possible that they
will refuse to modify some of the
more glaring inequalities. The fact
that, according to an net already in
existence, Kootenay will yield one
representative to Cassiar, while Cow-
ichrin (by no means over-represented
now) will lie compelled to spare one
of its seats for Nanaimo, has not
been overlooked; but while that
measure would do Nanaimo justice at
the expense of Cowichan, and while
it would do justice to Cassiar without
injury to Kootenay, it would still
leave New Westminster lying under
thu most grevioua injustice. We
have been looking at this District ai
it ranks at present. If wo look at it
in the very near futuie, with its
great railway works and its increased
fishery and other industries, and
with its population doubled, as will
undoubtedly be the caso in twelve
months after railway work has fairly
commenced, the case becomes just so
much the stronger, the injustice
so much tho greater. It is, therefore, very difficult to believe that
the Government would attempt to
leave New Westminster to enter
upon another parliamentary term
without some measure, of relief in
this respect/ 'L\) do so would be
neither politic nor just.

"The Onlv Man."- In his last
leading article, tbe local organ-grinder
doclaros Mr. Walkem to be "the only
man in the Province able to lill tbe
exalted position he holds." The statement is certainly very complimentary
to the Province, and, if true, conclusively proves its unfitness for responsible government. But it i« only about
a vear since, according to the same
authority, Mr. Walkem was the mnit
unfit man for tbe position in the Provinco. Ii the change in tho Premier

A Wauvinu.—Amongst our advertisements this morning will be found
one of a very important auction sale to

were seized and aro now sold by tho
Customs authorities far attempts to
evade payment of the proper duties
by the use of fraudulent invoices, and
it is to be hoped that the severe lesson
now administered will have a deterent
effect for the future and will result in
protection of those merchants who aro
above such tricks.

Election Regulations.
Under existing regulation.** every
candidate at a Dominion election must
deposit with the Returning Officer
the sum of fifty dollar.?, tho aamoto bo
applied towards tbo payment of the
election expenses. T|irore is now a
bill before Parliament substituting two
hundred dollars for fifty, ami providing as follows:—"Tbo tiiim no paid by
any candidate, shall be returned to him
in Ihe event of bis being elected, or of
his obtaining at least one-half the
number of the votes polled in favor of
the candidate elected, otherwise it
shall belong to Her Majesty fur tho
public uses of Canada."
Residence ol Judges.
Wo clip tho following from a summary of proceedings in tho House of
Commons:—"After a number of other
questions had been asked aud answered, Dr. Fortiu brought up a grievance
of tho people of Gaspe, who would like
to have the judge of their district reside aniungst then. Both Sir John
Macdonald and Hon, Mr. Mackenzie
assented to the reasonableness of this
desire, and stated that they had endeavoured to bring about what, tho people of Gaspe asked for. Hon. Mr.
Lauricr and Hon. Mr. Huntington
endorsed Dr. Eortiu's complaint about
the tendency towards centralization
of tbe Quebec Judiciary, and stated
thnt this evil was not by any menus
confined to the Gaspe district."
Licensing Court.
This Court met at 9 o'clock on
Wednesday. There was a full board
present. The following hotel licenses
were granted:—The Colonial Hotel,
tho Oro Hotel, and tho Eagle Hotel.
Mr. L. Gold applied for a license for
the Cosmopolitan Hotel—as yet only
existing on paper. Tho Court decided
not to consider tho application until
the buildings were up, Mrs. Herring's application for a license for the
Palace Saloon was refused. Tbo application for a transfer of the Grotto
Saloon license having been taken up,
it was considered advisable to postpone
action thereon until an action pending
iu another court in connection therewith shall have huou determined. Por
a similar reiv-on. tho case of the Pony
Saloon was also laid over and the
Court adjoupied till Saturday (to-day),
at 9 o'clock.
A General Election!
Some time ngo there was an apparent intention to dissolve tho Dominion Parliament at the close of tbe
present session; but moro recent in
dications seemed to look in another
direction. The following paragraph
with which a leading articlo in the
Globe of the 1st inst. opened leads us,
however, to conelude that there is still
a probability of dissolution and a general  election  during the present year:
"We aro in a position to announce,
ou unquestionable authority, that the
Dominion Government have resolved
to ask tbo Governor-General to dissolve Parliament untiled lately after the
close of the present session, instead of
waiting till its term expires by efflux
of time. The present is tbe fourth
session, but the Government feeling
their bold on public opinion weakening, understand that they will have
a better chance this year than next,
and have determined to appeal at once
to the people."
Outrageous Brutality.
A Paris cablegram of the 4th inst.
says:—
"A party of Americans traveling
from Brussels to this city wero subjected to indefinable brutality at tbe
police station of Feignies on the night
of the 1st instant. They were awakened by customs officials to have their
'"-"""Be examined, and were abused
for not immediately complying, and
assaulted by the cummisiHire de police
for protesting against tbe way in which
Mrs. Reynolds, of Providence, was
treated. That lady was roughly dragged out of a sleppine car, bareheaded,
without a bonnet or cloak, and exposed to coarse jeers of douaniors.
The male portion of the party resisting the violence done them, tbe
gen d'armes with iixed bayonets were
called to tbe assistance of the officials,
and three of them arrested and refused permission to telegraph to the
American minister aud their friends.
They were released until morning, and
were condemned to pay a tine of 500
francs each, coupled with police surveillance for eight months."
It will be otrange if the United
States Governiuont dons not insist
upon a thorungb investigation and
punishment of the ruffianly offenders.
The Queen's Gratitude.
On ihe 14th inst. Queen Victoria
left England for Menton, Italy. On
tho Kith the following appeared in a
Gazette supplement:—
"Tlm Queen has written Sir Wm.
Harcourt, Secretary of State for the
Home Government, that sho wishes,
before she leaves England, to express
from her heart, bow deeply she is touched by the outburst of enthusiastic loyalty, affection and devotion whicli the
painful event, of the 2nd instant called
forth from all classes and from all
parts of the vast empire, as well ns hy
the universal sympathy eviucod by
sovereigns and poople ot other nations.
The Queen cannot sufficiently express
how deeply she is -/ratified by these
demonstrations. Sho wishes to convey
to all, from the highest-to the humblest,
her warm and heartfelt thanks. The
Queen says it has always been her
greatest object to do all she can for her
subjects, to uphold the honor and
glory of her dear country and to promote tho prosperity and happiness of
those over whom she has reigned so
long. These efforts will bo continued
unceasingly to the last hour of her life.
The Queen thanks Gal that He spared
her beloved child, who is her constant
and devoted companion, nml those
who wero with her in a moment of
danger as well as herself. Sbo prays
that He will continue to protect them
for her people's sake, as Ho has hitherto so carefully protected her."

paid for. He had seen others drinking there from time to time.
(). D. Sweet was called, and proved
that on 30th or 31st December last,
T. Sirrs, the defendant, tendered him
(as City Clerk) §100 for renewal of P.
Jacl;man:s license for tho Grotto; that
he referred Sirrs to tho resolution of
the Council instructing hiin not to issue
renewal for Grotto, and he refused to
reoeivu tbe money; that defendant
loft it lying on the table and ho (witness) put it for safe-keeping in Mr.
Major's safe; that the money is now
lodged ill the Dominion Savings Bank.
This closed the case for the prosecution, and as it wns now 5 o'clock
and the defence bad several witnessQi
to call, tbo case was adjourned till 2
p. in, on Friday.
Friday, March 17.
The Court met at 2 p.m., when the
caso against T. Sirrs was resumed.
Mr. Corbould asked to have tbo case
dismissed, as only a single sale had
been proved, and that was insufficient
under1 the Act. The Court preferred
to hear any evidence the defense might
havo to offer.
P. Jackman called. Said ho had
sold out to Uren and ceased to have
any interest in saloon after that. Uren
had obtained renewal in his (Jack-
man's) name without his knowledge or
consent. Subsequently said he bad no
objection to renewal being issued in
his name., if Council liked to do it.
This concluded the case, and the
Court reserved decision till after hearing the other case.
Constable Wiggins v. Jas. Brennan.
—Tho information road, charging defendant with having sold spirituous
liquors in the Pony Saloon without a
license, between 9th January and 20th
February.
Constable Wiggins was called, and
proved sale of liquor by defendant on
three occasions, to wit., on the 19th
January, 28th January, and 11th Fub-
runry.
Frank Forrest was called, and corroborated this testimony.
0. D. Sweet was called, and testified to the license having been in Wm.
Nicoll's name until July, 1881. Mr.
J. A. Macdonald took out renewal
from 1st July to 81st Dec, aud took
renewal receipt in name of Mrs. Nic-
olls. Thero had buen an application
for transfer to the Licensing Board in
June, but it did not sit and the Mayor said he supposed they would continue to do business under old license.
J. A. Macdonald was culled, and
said he had acted under Mrs. Nicoll's
inslnictioiis. She was now livinjr at
her father's up the river.
This closed the evidence, and after
a lengthy judgment the Police Magistrate dismissed both cases, without
costs.

Postal Department.
The Report of the Postmaster-General shows a very considerable growth
in the business of the Department.
During the year covered by tho Report, the number of postoffices in
operation was increased by 1G2, and
the number of miles of mail routes by
1070. The number of letters and post
cards carried was something over sixtv
millions, being about live and a half
millions in excess of the number for
the previous year, and the revenue
showed an increase over the previous
year of over $100,000. The number
of registered letters was about two
aud a quarter millions, nnd of these
only 20 failed to roach their destination, while 03 arrived with the valuable contents either missing or less
than was stated to have been enclosed,
and in about half of the cases of loss,
tho persons responsible wero compelled
to make good the contents of tho letters. In the money order and P. O.
savings bank business there 1ms also
been considerable growth—the increase
in the total of business transacted
being about $1,000,000, and 82,000,-
000 respectively. British Columbia
is ahead of both Prince Edward Island
and Manitoba in the number and
amount of its money order transactions; but, on the other hand, these
Provinces return a larger postal revenue, and the cost of the service is
less. During the year tho Victoria
ollice issued 2,003 money orders, the
New Westminster office 1,034, the
Yale office 1,775, and the Nanaimo
office 045. The Victoria office, in
salaries alone, cost $6,314 03; the
New Westminster office, for salaries

KITH AND KIN.
(Continued.)
They sat down to dinner. Mrs.
Vane, Lizzie's mother, was of course
present as well. Her aspect might
have afforded a timely warning to any
man not already in love. She bad
once been exquisitely pretty in the
style of a wax-doll or a Dresden shepherdess. She bad had eyes of a forget-
me-not blue: it is the color that docs
not stand the test of tears or sleeplessness, with both of which ills Mrs.
Vane's life had boon plentifully troubled. She had had a profusion of flaxen hair, which was now thin ami
streaked with gray. She had had a
pretty figure and a peach-blossom complexion, Figure and complexion had
both vanished like a dream. She had
been the essence of the muoh-bo-
praised   "womanly   woman," in  the
sense of not taking the most remote or
elementary  interest  iu  any question
outside personal, domestic, or family
gossip.       Advancing  years  had  not
made her more intellectual; the ardent
hater of the "strung-minded female"
must have hailed Mrs.  Vane as his
ideal—no one ever had been able to
accuse her of strong-mindedness,   In
addition to this, alio was prone to tell
Aglionby, now that he was, us she said,
"like a near relation," that "Lizzie is
so like  what  I used to be at her age,
Bernard: I think I see myself again, I
in her—only for the dress.    We wore J likes, "lie said carelessly uud haughtily.
of her ascendancy over him. . «Vr
This afternoon sho had wliat she
considered*a very convincing proof of
this ascendancy. Bernard meekly followed her to Mrs. Golding's, and there
were, as he had prophesied, rivers of
tea, many mullins and tea-cakes, a
number of young people, and a little
music by way of diversion. Bernard
sat in silent anguish during this last
form assumed by the entertainment.
Ho had same scientific knowledge of
mimic; his mother while she lived had
tikeu curs of that; ami he had a tine
natural taste and discrimination iu the
matter, thrilling in answer to all that
was grand or elevated in the art. His
one solitary personal extravagance was
to attend tho series of fine concerts
which wero given every autumn and
winter season at Irkford. The performances this afternoon caused him
pain and dejection. He experienced a
sense of something akin to shame; to
liini it nil appeared it sort of expose,
Lizzie, in the sublime bliss of ignorance, boldly sat down and sung in a
small voice, nasal, Hat-, and affected:
"Wo nut li? tliu river, you nml T,
In tlm sviiut summer-timo lung ago."
It was terrible. Ho was thankful
when at last Lizzie arose and said it
was time to be going to church. That
was her moment of triumph, or rather
it ought to have been—when Miss
Golding, it may be innoeeiitly, or it
may be of malice aforethought, but
certainly with every appearance of
ingenuous; surprise, exclaimed:
"To chitrehj I thought you never
went to church, Mr. Aglionby."
"I  go   with   Lizzie whenever she
more stuff in our skirts in those days,
and I think it looked bettor—not but
what she's very good taste."
Mrs. Van* might have furnished a
warning to Bernard in more ways
than one. She was the widow of a
man who bad held a somewhat higher
position than Aglionby's, in a business
of the same kind—such a position as
Bernard himself looked forward to
attaining before he could make Lizzie
his wife. His higher position had
afforded him the means of marrying,
and had enabled hiin to save suflicient
money to leave a tiny income to his
widow nnd his one child, wliich income they eked out by taking two
lodgers, Bernard Aglionby and another
young man, who did not trouble them
much, and who always went home to
the country at the end of the week,
and stayed there till Monday.
Lizzie had been at a cheap school)
where she had acquired some flimsy
accomplishment, aud a little superficial
information—generally incorrect—upon
such matters as geography, history,
and "common subjects." The large
and first-rate High School for Girls
had been disdained, as not. being select
enough since tradesmen's daughters
went to it. The other large school in
the vicinity, at which a really first-rate
education was to be obtained, was a
ladies' college, avowedly intended for
rich and exclusive pupils, and of which
the terms ware prohibitory to persons
of Mrs. Vane's annual income; Therefore Lizzie had gone to the cheap day-
school already mentioned, and had
flirted at a very early age with the
students of the college hard by, with
the big boys on thoir way to the grammar school, and with the clerks going
down to business, specimens of oach
of which class she was in the habit of
meeting on the way to aud from hor
seminary. She had been tho belle of
that truly select establishment fur n
long time beforo she had left it.
Languishing youths had written her
notes, and sent her valentines and
gloves and goodies in abundance; in
fact Miss Vane was a reigning beauty
—in her sot. If she had been in
another set, the "society" papers would
have chronicled liar doings, and told
of her costumes, would have disputed
about the color of her eyes, and fought
fiercely over her reputation, or want
of it.
Just a year ngo, Bernard Aglionby
had come to lodge with them, replacing another young man who had recommended the place to him. Naturally
they frequently met. Lucy Golding
and sho had talked him over. Lucy
said Percy knew him well, but that he
nevor came to their bouse; that he was
well known to be impervious to all
feminine charms and womanly wilos.
This, and other communications of a
like nature, had somewhat piqued Miss
Vane, and had inspired her with a
doep interest in Aglicnby. Soon existence ceased to be worth having until
at any rate a smile und a compliment
had been wrung from Bernard—some
token to show that he was not proof
against hor, however nearly case hardened. It had been some little time
beforo tho experiment had succeeded
—before Aglionby had even thoroughly
roused to tha consciousness that there
was a pretty girl in the houso who
smiled kindly upon him. Then, whatever he might hnve felt, he had for
some time concealed his sentiments
bohind a mask of impassive calm, until one day ho broke forth, nnd made
love in a fashion so imperious, and so
vehement, as, metaphorically speaking, to carry Miss Vane off Iter feet.
She could net withstand the torrent
of his fiery nature. His piercing eyes
seemed to burn through her. His
voice, and Ins glance, and his ardor
bad for the moment thrilled and subdued her, and it was such a triumph
over Lucy and Percy, and all the rest
of them—over Bernard's friends, top
- -those odd "Agnostics" who never
went to church, and who talked about
republicanism as if they would not bo
sorry to see it established, and who nil
—there was tho point—seemed to
think that Aglionby was quite above
woman's influence—these incentives,
put together, formed a stronger iuflu-
ence than :W« could resist. Aglionby
become her accepted lover, and, looking at it all from her point of view,
sho presently began to find that a
great conquest brings its circs and
peine as well a* its pleasures. Still,
it was a conquest, and her power had
made itself felt now and then. More
than once she bad cajoled Bernard
into giving up some political meeting,
or some evening of debate; or she hud
withdrawn him from hii brother Agnostic* in order to take her to the
theatre, or go out with her to some
luburban tea-party. Suburban tea-
parties and theatre going were things
which aha- liked, and whicli Bernard,
at iho very well knew, disliked, bo
that every time he accompanied her
to either one or the other entertainment, was a now and tangible proof

it   pleases   her, and'  docs   me  no
harm."
"Oh—h! Bernard!" cried his betrothed, her cup of pleasure dashed
from her li pa; while a young lady who
was almost a stranger, and who appeared struck with this remark of
Barnard's, said severely that she could
riot understand how going to church
could harm any one. To which ho,
inwardly annoyed by the silly stupidity of the whole affair, replied nonchalantly that it was nevertheless very
i ad for Euiue constitutions, his amongst
thein, and amidst the consternation
produced by this statement, he and
Lizzie departed.
"Really, Bernard, you do upset mo
when you coma out with some of those
awful remarks of yours. Poor Miss
Smith couldn't make you out at all."
"I dare say not. I am sure it is a
matter of complete i nd i tier « nee to me
whether she made me out or not."
"Yes, you will set public opinion at
defiance, and it will do you no good,
say whal; you like."
"My child," said he, drawing her
hand through his arm, and laying his
own upon it, "I. think you can hardly
be called a judge ns to what is public opinion. It you mean that Miss
Smith represents it, I don't care to
please it. Ann if I go to church with
you at your wish, what do fifty Miss
Smiths and their silly ideas matter ?"
"Ah, but I don't know whether it
is not very wicked in you to come to
church, when you don't believe in a
word of what is going on. I am not
sure that I do right to bring you, only
I keep hoping that it will have some
good efl'oct upon you,"
"Well it has," he said tenderly. "It
has Iho eilect of making mo love you
and prize you ten times inure for your
goodness and your faith."
They were reconciled, as thoy entered the jfates of tho churchyard, and
joined the throng going in, while thu
loud, clanging bells overhead sounded
almost deafening, and the steeple rocked
to their clamorous summons.
Bernard liked sitting there, through
the evening service, with Lizzie by his
■side; and he liked the walk homo
through the field*, undor the clear,
starlit sky, and then through the
streets, between the lines of lamps.
When she hung on his arm, and they
talked nothings together, then he felt
at home with her, he forgot hor bad
singing, and her conventional little
thoughts and stereotyped ideas. In
the province of talking nothings Liz-
zit) was ut home, was natural, unaffected, even spirited. S'> soon as she
left them she became insipid and artificial, nnd this was what Aglionby had
dimly felt for some time, though he
had not given a definite name to thu
sensation'. They talked nothings tonight, and he purled front her in the
warm conviction that sho was a dear,
lovely little creature, that sho was the
woman who loved hint, and whom he
loved, and to whom ho was going to
be loyal nnd true to his life's end.
The morning of Monday was half
over. Aglionby stood in the sale-room
of the warehouse, which at the moment was empty. He bad disposed
satisfactorily of large amounts of goods
already, and now for tho first time ho
found a leisure liniment, in which to
take up a newspaper, and glance over
it. It was the advanced Liberal jour
mil of Irkford, tho Dally Chronicle,
In a conspicuous place at the head of
a column, in the middle of the patter,
wns a letter to the Editor, entitled,
'' E d it en t i on in Do n o in (national
Schools." This letter wns signed,
"Pride of Science," ns if with a deli-
ant, challenge to tho rival "Pride of
Ignorance." Aglionby's eyes gleamed
us he glanced down the columns, and
liis most disagreeable sutilc stole over
his face. The tetter win from his own
pen, nnd wns not the first, by several,
with which he had enriched the columns of that journal, on that and
kindred topics. He was not aware
himself nf the attention which these
letters had attracted. He knew that
generally they culled forth angry replies, accusing him of wishing to undermine the whole fabric of respectability; to explode the secure
foundations of society, and cause anarchy to be crownod; and to these ful-
minations hu delighted to reply with
a pitiless, slashing acerbity; au intuitive stabbing of the weak points iu
his opponent's armor which must have
mndo those enemies writhe. He had
never yet paused tonsk himself wtiother
his course of action in the matter were
noble or not. He detected abuses,
and those abuses flourishing rankly
under a system which he thoroughly
dislikod; nnd ho hastened tn expose
them, and to hold them and their perpetrators up to ridicule; dangling thein
beforo such a public as chose to take an
interest iii his proceedings, and scourging them well, with whipping words
and unsparing hand.
