Current Events nnd Opinions.
Tho ]i iblic debt of Oniiiidii is increasing at a tremendous nite. On
the lst inst. it amounted to $255,
906,416 ; and this in a country Unit
has tower inhabitants than the State
of New York. But then, if people
will vote big railroad subsidies, con-
struot costly canals and other public
works on credit—to say nothing of
the high taxation—somebody must
pay the piper, and pay day cannot
tie eturijally postponed.—if, }'. Commercial Bulletin,
The New South Wales contingent
for the Soudan campaign consists
of 212 artillerymen, 200 horses
and 522 infantry. These men it is
understood have sailed and their
expense is borne by ft patriotic fund
collected in tho colony. Victoria
tenders six or seven hundred men,
and all the other Australian colonies in liko proportion. Canada's
offer is known, and although some
Canadian papers may sneer they
will find the offer take a practioal
shape as soon as the acceptance is
definitely settled and the terms
agreed upon. These offers from
the British colonies and the Dominion are the Empire's answer to
the intrigues of the European nations and Bismarck's bullying.—
Ottawa Free Press.
Two cents and a twelfth is not
much to earn for making a shirt,
and yet this is what first rato sewing girls ip New York are paid.
How on earth do employers think
that these unfortunates can live on
such a pittance) Surely they have
niuch to answer for! This is what a
sewing girl says about it: "I have
sewed for a living for some time,
and have sat up until 2 o'clock night
after night and can not make both
(ew!n meet. I make shirts from 25
.ceiiu up to 65 cents a dozen, We
make tlm most monoy out of the 25
gout ones, I am considered a first
class sewing woiunn. for many
weeks I only buy dry bread to eat."
It is something to wonder at what
these poor creatures make on the
65 centsa-dozen-shirts if the profit
is less than that on the others. ■ I
have been told that somo of the employers forco tho girU to And their
own thread, and I know that many
are mean and small-souled enough
to do so. These shirts costing two
nnd one twelfth cents for making,
are sold for from $1.69 to ?2 each!
and the employer grows wealthy
and his wife and her friends, conscious of their own immaculate
virtue, hold those poor girls in scorn
because they ore not all good. We
weren't told half tbe hardships of
it seamstress! life iu Hood's Song of
the Shirt, and yet what we do read
there is pretty sad.—Truth.
India is one of the most beautiful
domains, and every inch of arable
land is nnder the highest possible
cultivation, although the implements
used are the most primitive. The
inhabitants seom to us to be a black
race j they are always erect in stature and havo the most beautiful
eyes of any peoplo on earth. We
can have no idea of what a dense
population is until we see a nation
like the Hindoos. Euch person has
only 250 feet square to himself, and
in tile northern parts the space is reduced to 150 feet, the average being
700 people fo tho square milo. It
is a land whero thore are no industries, so called, uo mechanical arts,
no merchandise worthy tho name.
With trifling exceptions the native
must live off his 150 feet of ground,
and it is estimated that the highest
average wages he can mako is seven
cents a day. Deducting the cost of
supporting the infants, old and sick
population, and tho laborer can
scarcely earn for himself more than
four cents. The country has 262,-
000,000 people,, and once seen such
a nation will haunt ono forever. It
costs about as much to keop a Hindoo job it does a goat and he is regarded at about the same value.
The problem of Christianity in that
land is how to raiso the people up
to the thoughts and customs whioh
mark a Christian community. England is slowly developing an Indian
commerce and this may in time help
along the cause of Christ During
the famine a few years ago 6,000,-
fJJIO poople, equal to the population
of iTo"-- York and Connecticut,
starved M death and their bones
wero pioked up and sent to Ceylon
to be pulverized. It is a dreary
land of poverty and patience and a
handful of missionaries are trying
to put into the human souls there
Aspirations above those of tho boast

■ttafcB.
A New Year's Call.
Dirty, atom: aud cold;
Neglected, pooi* and forlorn—
A woman, juat fit for tlie mould,
And a mite of a baby newborn,
Found by tho light of to-day,
With the light of the body fled—
No lips there had trembled to say
A last farewell, to the deadl
And the single, faitit token of life,
Waa a feeble, appealing; cry,
From the baby smothered in rag*,
And just living enough—to die!
No Are, and nothing to oat!,
A place too poor for ti rat-
Two worn-out shoes, which her feet
Had consigned to a worse wont mat
Ou the one broken window, no cover,
Save tlie cold, dark curtain pf .night-
No one to pity, nor love hor, i~
None' with a step soft and light,
To watch and to wait for tho end!
To weep, and to care for the child;
Alas! no lamentations to blend
With the voice of the night sobbing
wild!
And  the  dawn  of  the "Happy New
Year;"
Happy for healthy and wealthy,
Dropped many a pitying tear,
And crept thro' the doorway so stealthy
That it seemed half afraid of tlie gloom
With which night had enshrouded the
bed!
As if in that ghostly room
Weird shadows attended the dead;
Startled shades which fled when the light
Gained tremulous courage and kissed
The face of the dead! oh! the sight!
■The dead who would never be misBed!
Well—the potter's field for the rest!
Aud a woman all stilt in her shroud,
With a young baby clasped to her breast!
There  are  no tears, no  heads  low
bow'd!
None tliere to miss, hor to love.
Ttie old sexton laughs aa ho works,
And asks the coarse cartinan the news,
Whilo the spasmodic spade in short
jerks
Digs deep—there's a hole in the ground—
A pauper's pine coffin let down;
' 'Found dead!" on a board at the mound,
And a cart rattling back to the town!
Proclaiming the Glad Event.
New Father, first baby (writing a
despatch)-- "Little girl, six pounds,
born 7 a.m.    Mother dmiiu well,"
Telegraph Operator—"By omitting
the word 'little,' air, yuu can bring the
dispatch down to ton words. The word
"little' is superfluous."
Now Fathor (excited)~Superfluous!
Nothing is superfluous. Send the dispatch exactly as it is. This is no time
fur economy, and besides, the baby
only weighs six pounds. Rush it regardless of expense."
We all Know Her.
Firm mothor to boy—"Didn't I toll
you that I'd whip -you if you played
iu tbat water again, aay t"
Boy—"Yesaum."
Firm mother-"Then why did you
do iti"
Boy — "Because I didn't believe
you."
Firm mother—"Nover mind, you
shan't go down-town with me when I
go; seo if you do?"
Shortly afterward the firm mother
and the boy go down-town together.—
Arhm\$dW Traveller.
Charles Kiugsley gavo a good recipe
for tho improvement uf the world.
"Have chanty," ho says, f'hftve patience, haVo mercy. Never bring a
human boing, however silly, ignorant,
or weak, above all, any little ohild, to
■hame and confustm of face. Never
by petulance, by suspicion, by ridicule,
even by selfish and Billy haste, never,
above all, by indulging in the devilish
pleasure of a sneer, crush what is finest
and rouso up what is coarsest in the
heart of any fellow-creature."
General Grant's case is identical
with that of United States Senator
Ben Hill. He chewed tobacco immoderately, and while he was seemingly iu the prime of health a cancer
appeared at the roots of bis tongue.
He went 'through the martyrdom of
a numbor of surgical operations, but
the result was nothing but a prolongation of a life of pain and endless
struggling. Tho closing days of Ben
Hill's life woro very pathetic. He
al-ftwly starved to death.

Sir Peter Lumsden, the British commissioner in charge of the scientific
recunnaisance upon the Afghan frontier, has two brothers in Canada, one
a resident of Gait and the other a rail*
way engineer, who located the Credit
Valloy line and superintended the con*
structiou of the Ontario & Quebec,
They are sons of the late General
Lumsden, of Belhelvie Lodge, Aberdeenshire, Scotland, a gentleman "of
high standing in British military
circles,
 , _»   . . —.
The Mahdi when he took Khartoum
got possession, it is believed, of hoaps
of Gen. Gordon's paper notes, which
the British govornmont is in honor
bound to redeem. There does not
seem to he any reason why the Mahdi
should not put more paper thruugh
the same process thut Gordon did,
thus securing An unlimited supply of
money, to carry on the war and letting
his enemy find tho bullion to redeem
his ourrency.	
In the St. Juhniburg, N. Y., Times,
there appears au item to the effect that
"tho obituary notioe of Mrs. iB
not continued to-day, for the reason
that, the family refused to pay our
regular rates for such work, adding
that they could get it done for nothing
at Fort Plain. Good way to encourage homo industry."
"Pah," asked Johnnie Jarphly,
"what is a defaulter?" "Ho is a man
who loses money that does not belong
to him, my son/' replied Mr. Jarphly.
"And what is a financier?" "Ont
who hangs on to it,"
'It is a belfof of the Buddhists of
Oeylon that if a woman behaves ber-
boU properly she will eventually be*
como a man." And yot peoplo say
that women nover _et thoir rights in
this world.	
'Let go my oar," yelled a passotiger
on a Weat side street-car yesterday.
"I beg your pardon," said the other
man, ,rI thought I hnd hold of the
strap."

Journalistic Etiquette.
It is to' i regretted that the managers of the Victoria' Colonist and
Times seem unable to perceive how
tmedifying .unci repulsive uro tho
columns of personal accusation
which have tilled their respective
journals during the past few weeks.
As newspapers tlio Colonist and
Times occupy a very creditable position in the province; but they
ought to know that conduct of this
sort is neither creditable to themselves nor acceptable to the great
majority of their readers. We do
not pretend to imply that the
Colonist has had no just cause of
provocation ugainst the Times. It
■ has undoubtedly been grossly insulted and misrepresented. But
the Colonist litis insulted tlio Times
as well, and has misrepresented it
and put the worst possible construction upon its utterances. Both
have given oflence, and both have
offended. But let them not mnke
the public suffer for their own lack
of etiquette. Tlie controversy has
been carried on already beyond the
limits of patient endurance. Let
them kiss und be friends, and the
longsuffering readers will be extremely thankful. While they both
show evidence of commendable enterprise as newspapers, they show
at the same time ,a sad deficiency
in judgment as well as etiquette.
Squatters* Claims.
We understand that Mr. Geo.
Turner, 0. E. (Woods, Turner k
Gamble), and Mr. J. C. Hughes
(Hughes tt [Atkinson), both of
this city, have been appointed
by the government to appraise the
improvements made by the squatters on Conl Harbor aud English
Bay property. Both these gentlemen are well known throughout
this district, and we are sure no
person will say that epithet of them
is uot both capable and trustworthy.
Both of the appraisers are among
the pioneers of British Columbia
and ought to bo well posted in matters of this kind. We do uot kriott*
where the government could have
found for this work two men who
would have carried to it a larger
measure of public confidence. The
Columbian lids already expressed
the hope that the award made by
the appraisers would not commit
the province to an£ expenditure
greater than the facts might justify.
It is not u cuse wliere consequen
tial damages enn be thought of. If
there arc cases where persons have
taken up laud about the prospective terminus, in. ignorance of Che
fact that these lunds were not open
for settlement, and with an honest
intention to cultivate the soil, we
are sure no one will object to the
fullest compensation. But we want
no recognition of speculative claims,
or claims founded upon fraud. Of
this class we have a notion there
are several. It would be most unfair to persons who refrained from
taking up these lands because they
were reserved, if they were forced
now to pay their proportion of the
expenso necessary to satisfy the
claims of adventurers who squatted
thero for speculation. Tlie province
has already spent hundreds of dollars in consequence of tliese squatters' claims: let us spend no more
than is necessary iu the interests of
justice and fairness.'
The. Reeve's Defence.
In another column wt; publish
two letters from the reeve qf Surrey
relating to tho granting of a liquor
license at Mud Bay. The second
letter is couched in language which,
it will readily be admitted, would
have fully justified us in excluding
it from our columns. But it does
not hurt us, nnd we are inclined to
believe that Mr. McDougall himself will admit that lie goes buyout!
the boundB nf common courtesy.
It iu quite true that the act quoted
makes no provision for hearing objections to licenses, or for any expression of public opinion whatever.
But . the Hcnuse act provides for
both, and »t is the license uct and
not tho municipal aot wliich governs
the granting of licenses where a
municipal license bylaw does uot
exist. We havo no knowledge of
any such by-law in Hurrey. If
there is ono, tlie etauso relating to a
two-thirds petition will not apply,
but the reove is undoubtedly wrong
in supposing that objections to a
license could uot be made before a
licensing court. The fact that notioe of an intention to apply for
suoh a liconso must be published 14
days implies the right of objection.
It will not help Mr. McDougall
out of his embarrassment to accuse
the people of Mud Bay of inconsistency. Whatever opinions may
havo been previously expressed, the
license court had undoubted proof
that a majority of the people were
opposed to the establishment of a
saloon at Mud Bay, and the voice
of the people ought to have prevailed. We are very glad that Mr.
McDougall is able to deny that he
had any personal interest in granting this license. It was stated to
us by men whose opinions we could
not disregard that ho had, and the
circumstances certainly were pointing strongly in that direction. We
could not imagine what motive
other than selfishness would induce
Mr. MqDougall to assist in establishing a placo at Mud Bay where
he must know evil influences would
be found, and temptations from
which tho settlement has hitherto
boen happily free. It was impossible to believe that lie had the
moral interests of the community
at heart. He may have thought
tho sale of intoxicating liquor would
bring business — but if it made
wrecks of happy homes and happy
hearts, and tended to lower tho
moral standard, us it was sure to
do, the compensation of a small increase in trade would be a poor
comfort indeed. Upon Mr. Mc-
Dougall's own statement, however,
we frankly withdraw the insinuation of self-interest. Mr. McDou-
gnll's other observations we do not
consider worthy of reply.
The Fourth Portfolio.
On Saturday Mr. Simeon Duck,
ono of the representatives of the
city of Victoria iu tho provincial
legislature, was sworn in by the
lieutenant-governor as minister of
finance and agriculture. Since tho
retirement of Mr. Drake, who held
the position of president of the
council, without a portfolio, tliere
have been only three persons in the
cabinet, and Victoria, the largest
and most wealthy constituency iu
the province, was without representation in tlie government. The
accession of Mr. Duck will bring
considerable strength, and will relieve the provincial secretary of
some of the multitudinous duties
which were associated with his
office. Besides being provincial
secretary, he was minister of finance, minister of agriculture, minister of mines, aud minister of education. Mr. Duck takes the doublo
duties pertaining to the offices of
minister of finance and agriculture.
To those who know the new minister ,we need not sny that he is a
gentleman of excellent parts, and
enjoys the confidence and respect of
his constituenta He is u Canadian
by birth, having been born at St.
Catharines, Out, where his parents
wero among the earliest settlers.
He first entered parliament as representative for Victoria in 1871.
In 1875 he suffered* defeat, but was
elected again in 1878, and again at
the general election of 1882. Mr.
Duck probably owes his late election to opposition votes principally,
although he has beeu independent in
parliament. In the early sessions he
manifested a disposition to oppose
the present government. Afterwards lie drifted into an attitude of
independence, and last session he
supported the government more
than he opposed it.. On tlie railway extension scheme liis whole influence was with tho government
as, indeed, it wus on tho settlement
bill of 1883. Some persons may be
disposed to insinuate that Mr. Duck
lias been induced by the hope of
oflico to abandon his principles.
We prefer to believe that ftlr. Duck
became convinced that the policy
and practice of the government
were such as deserved approval,
and, acting upon principle, ho hus
concluded to give it an unqualified
support. It is well known that
Mr. Beaven's health is such as to
make it doubtful if ho will ever be
able to enter with his old vigor into
the discussions of the house. He
is unquestionably one of the ablest
of thu opposition, and the loss of
his active and aggressive leadership was felt Beriously by his party
during the Inst session. With Mr.
Duck in the cabinet, and Mr.
Beaven's effectiveness greatly weakened, the opposition, at no time
very strong, will be singularly
feeble. Mr. Duck is not only a
gentleman of good abilities, but ho
has tho additional recommendation
of being highly respected. The
government gains, therefore, both
in actual strength and in moral support During the debate on the
railway extension scheme last session tbo premior stated that Mr.
Orr, junior member for tliis distinct, had done everything in his
power to defeat the government.
ft may be taken ns a fact, therefore, that Mr. Orr has gono ovor
bodily to tlie opposition. It is
somownat remarkable that he sbould
have done this just when Mr. Duck
was upon the eve of fotmnlly identifying himself witli tiio govornment, We are sure thi government's friends, would bo glad to
make a few more exchanges of tlie
same sort. When the most res-
pectable of the oppositionists or in
dependents are coming over to the
government ranks, tho loss of persons like Mr. Orr, whose sympathies, it is well known, were never
with the government party, although
he was elected to support that party
in parliament, will not be much
felt. It is no secret that the government has been forced by such
men as this sometimes to deflect
from the policy that had been
mapped out; but with its growing
strength it will be able to pursue
the course whicli seems best ih spite
of such opposition. We believe
both the government and the country may bo congratulated upon the
political event which forms tho subject of this article.

Attacked dy n Cougar.— Lust Sunday morning Mr. H. Hunsdon, of
Delta, waa coming over the Scott Rond
to this city uu horseback. When about
2 miles from Brownville a large cougar
suddenly sprang from tho brush at tho
side of the road aud struck the horse
on the neck. Tho horse fell, but recovered himself and sprang forward,
Hunsdon clinging tn the saddle. In
his fright and haste ho struck n large
atone and fell, throwing Hunsdon over
his hend, nnd afterwards gnlloping off
with nil speed. Hunsdon saw the
cougar leave tho road, plunge into the
bushes, and disappear from view. The
horse was found to have suffered very
little from tho attack, there being no
injury visiblo beyond a fow scratches
on his neck. It is believed thu cougar
saw only the horso, and did not perceive the man whon ho first made the
attack. Wc hnvo never heard of n
cougar nttneking a man unless hu was
down, or in a crouching position.

Communications.
The Boundary Towu.
In your issue of Maroh Uth, I notice
a correspondence headed, "From Semiahmoo Bay." If you will allow me space
in your valuable eojumus I will endeavor
to correct some of the wilful mistakes
contained in that correspondence. It Is
very easy comprehending that your cor'
respondent is neither a navigator nor
a civil engineer, nor yet has lie a moderate share of common -tense. When he
advocates the construction of n wharf at
the initial point of tlio coast meridian
and boundary lino of B.C. ami W,T., jt
is evident that ho is not acquainted with
tho locality; othorwiso ho would not
mention such au undertaking as the construction of a wharf at that point, as
the wharf would hjive to bo built for at
least one mile over the sand flats to reach
deep water, and three-fourths of the
wharf would then bo in American waters,
as can" be seen by examining the map of
this district. The anchorage and shelter
for shipping, which he mentions, is nowhere to be found in Semiahmoo Bay,
excopt in Drayton Harbor, W.T. And
as for the opening through of tlie coast
meridian line, it is beyond all reason to
suppose that it will ever benefit the settlements ot Mud Bay, Clover Valley, or
Langley, as the natural and only practicable outlet for those settlements is by
the Nicomekl river, which your correspondent bo unjustly condemns, and states
that the entrance to the harbor at the
mouth of this river can only bo navigated
by a small stern-wheel Bteamer. He
states a falsehood, for, at lowest tide,
tliere is from nine to twelve feet of water
to be found in the channel, all the way
into the harbor, and the mud flatB which
he refers to are composed of sand and do
not extend as far from shore as do the
flats at Semiahmoo Bay. To iny knowledge the steamers Tacoma and Beaver
have been into the harbor at the mouth
of the river, and the steamers Dunsmuir,
New Westminster, and Belle, have frequently been up the river to the bridge
on Semiahmoo road. I think auy of
those steamers will bo found capable of
crossing tho Gulf of Georgia. From the
abovo mentioned bridge to the bridge on
the Hall's Prairie rood the river is only
navigable, at present, for small vessels
and scows, on account of obstructions
which are in tho river. A petition has
been Bent to the Dominion government,
this season, asking to havo those obstructions removed as soon as possible, which
goes to prove that the people hold this
i iver as their outlet to the markets of
British Columbia. In reference to a
market near the mouth of tbe river, I
■night say, it is already started, as there
lu a store and blacksmith shop doing a
good business, nntl a hotel and shoe-shop
under construction, aud a small vessel
trading constantly between that port and
Victoria, New Westminster, and Nanaimo. 1 cannot comprehend the object of
your correspondent in misrepresenting
this locality in the manner in which he
has done, but it is apparent that his interests are not in the welfare of this district. A. N. Anderson.
A Hearty Recommendation.—Jacob
A. Empey, of Cannainore, states that lie
hns taken Burdock Blood Bitters with
great benefit in a lingering complaint,
and adds that he would gladly recommend it to all.
The Mnd Bny License.
Editoic Columbian.—With your permission I will state briefly and plainly
my position iu the Surrey licensing matter. When Mr, Rowan signified his intention of applying for a license to sell
liquor by retail at Mud Bay, a number
of the residents who eventually signed
the petition opposing the granting of the
license at first declined signing either
petition, for the simple reason that they
were undecided as to whether it would
be advantageous to the welfare of the
settlement or not to havo a hotel opened
and licensed to sell liquor here. These
gentlemen, I believe, stated publicly
that they would sign neither petition;
however, they eventually signed tho petition circulated hy Mr. Stewart opposing the granting of the license. It
would have heen better for nil concerned
if those gentlemen liad taken a decided
stand one way or another at first and
thus removed any doubts as to their real
feelings and intentions, Which they could
not have had any good practical reason
for concealing. This was the attitude ofthe actual settlers in the .immediate
vicinity of where the hotel will 'lie
opened, i
With regard to petitions for or against
the licensing of any house iu any municipality, the municipal act, 1881, docs
not make any provision for hearing any
complaints against the granting of liquor
licenses, neither are applicants for such
licenses required to have a two-thirds
majority of the residents' signatures in
favor of his application.
In your issue of the 18th iiiBt., thero
ara a number of communications respecting this subject, in which, very intern-
perntely, those who opposed the granting o'f this license attack tho licensing
court and myself personally.   With re-
?;ard to suoh action I Bhall only say that
t would be more consistent on their part,
to say the very least, if they wero to
practice what they preach and not allow
their temper to control their judgment
simply because they could not induce a
magistrate in the discharge of his duty
to give a decision iu conformity with
their views in the case.
In conclusion, I may just say that the
liquor dealer haB recognized rights under
the law as well aa templars have; that a
magistrate- My Ib to give a just decision in confonnlty with the law and not
to be controlled by party views or sentimentality; that the same law that legalizes the liquor traffic provided for regulating the same, and it would have been,
I think, doubly to tho cfedit of your
correspondents had they applied themselves to tbe work of having such laws
enacted aa would" secure aa far as possible ths best government and regulation
of public houses, instead of vindictively
attacking through the columns of a public newspaper those who any unprejudiced thinking person, acquainted with
the circumstances of the case, will grant
have acted impartially and independently
in this matter.
Respecting my position as reere of
this municipality, as referred to iu your
editorial of same date, I am ready when
the ratepayers see fit to choose some one
else to fill my place to vacate tho reeve's
chair, and wish my successor all the success that any reeve in any municipal
council oan possibly achieve,
W. C. McDouoall,
Reove Surrey Mun.
Mud Bay, March 20, 1885.
Editor Columbian,- Will you confer
a favor by publishing the following. < As
I havo beeu publicly attacked through
tho columns of the Cglpmdian, 1 hope I
may be allowed to defend myself through
the samo medium.
Referring to the liquor license granted
to Mr, Rowan of Mud Bay, in your issue
of 21st inst., you have made certain
statements and insinuations that are disgracefully lacking in manhood and truth;
perhaps yon havo bean mislead, but that
can be no excuse for the man who wields
a public pen, to whom all look for a fair
aud truthful statement, but who, confining himself to one Bide of any subjects
forthwith attacks umnaufiilly and untruthfully any oue who may happen to
be out of line with what may appear to
him to he the right course.   -
iir. Rowan was not granted a "snloou
license"; he was granted a liquor lhonse
for his hotel, which is not nor will be a
saloon, but a hotel sufficiently large, with
stabling, etc., in addition to accommodate the travelling public. There is not
another public bouse nearer than Brownville, distant 11 miles; Semiahmoo, 6
miles; Fort Langley, 17 miles; and Lad-
ner's Landing, 15 miles. There is a
largo amount of traffic through here and
it is only reasonable that a hotel should
be established to itccomjuodatc the same.
It is abxolttttltj fdse that when I sold
out to Mr. Uowiui that I promised to
grant him a liquor license. The sale of
iny store was a business transaction, conducted as such, the iushuiatlonB published
by the editor of tho Colvmhian and his
anonymous correspondents notwithstanding. It is not true that I have any personal interest in Mr. Rowan's business,
neither in the hotel or otherwise, nor are
wo partnoi'M in .any business of auy kind
whatever.
Respecting the insinuation Unit I have
prostituted my official position for tho
furtherance of my own intersst, it Is a
slander vile enough to have' emanated
from tho most vindictively truthless and
abandoned of characters, let alone the
editor of the Columbian, who uo doubt
wishes to be on the side of right and
truth, but .who in this instance at least
has acted with a great want of discrimination and good judgment, and published
statements personal to myself that shows
he' has been shamelessly thoughtless if
nothing more in his actions' respecting
this matter.
In conclusion, my actions both public
and private during my lifetime, will bear
the light of day, and I intend to pursue
in the future the same course I have in
the past, at nil times dealing with all
subjects independently and impartially,
and just as fearlessly and independently
defending myself against anything or
any person or personB who may attack
me unfairly and untruthfully as has been
done in this instance.

NEWS FROM ALL PARTS OF TNE WORLI.
Montreal, Mar. 10.— R. B. Angus,
of the Canadian Pacific railway, said, in
reference to the communication said to
have buen received by the Canadian government from the British government,
asking what is the earliest date at which
communication with tho Pacific can be
had over the Canadian Pacific, that,
the intelligence department of the Imperial government had that matter under
consideration: "In tho event," said Mr,
Angus, "of the Suez Canal being closed,
the shortest route to India would be over
the Canadian Pacific, This route, in the
event .of a war with Russia, will be the
shortest route to both India and China.
Great Britain must have an alternate
route as complications may arise in the
Mediterranean which would make even
communication with Egypt difficult, although it would bo a round about way to
get there. Tbe gaps yet to be built in
tho Canadian Pacifio are not of such distance that troops, should necessity compel them, could not make the distance
by easy marches. In fact, troops could
be sent over this route in April, when
the Canadian Paoifio boats commence
running on Lake Superior."
Seattlk, Mar. 19.—A disastrous fire,
accompanied by loss of life, occurred this
morniug at 3 o'olock. Flames were noticed issuing from the lower portion
of the Oriental Hotel, corner of South
Second and Washington streets. In a
short time the entire structure was enveloped in flames, whioh dolled the efforts
of the department. Eric Johnson, aged
40, was burned to death, Mike Tobin,
aged 35, received internal injuries in
dropping from a third story window, and
will die. Ed. Downey, aged 32, was
terribly burned and will probably die.
Olof Ottison and J. B. Moe were severely
burned, but may recover. Many others
received injuries of a less serious nature.
Chief McKeon, of the fire department,
performed a most heroic aot in rescuing
a man from the burning building at the
risk of his own life. The lodgers lost all
their clothing and valuables. Tho loss
on building and furniture iB about $7,000.
Insurance on house, $3,000; on furniture,
$2,000.
Nkw Vork, March 20.—The tribune's
special from New Orleans says that latest news from Guatemala represents
President Ba'rrio as h>a frenzy of rage
with Do Zaldivar of San Salvador, He
says that owing to many favors extended
by him to Zalvidar he expected his assistance .in the recent movement, whereas
Zalvidar, by his defiance and appeal to
Mexico, materially interfered with bis
plans. Barrio threatens to have a settlement with Zalvidar as sot
tions of Guatemala with otiic.
American states are determined, which
is construed as meaning he will make
war on San Salvador. The Guatemala
press, in which nothing is published except with the consent of the government,
declares a readiness to fight the whole
world. American papers have been prohibited from going into Guatemala on
the decree that Barrio was to send .to
tlie senate declaring war as a necessity
to accomplish his euda. It has not yet
been submitted to that body, and on account of interference of Mexico it probably will nqt be.
New York, March 20.—It Is stated
here thst the Pacifio Mall Company contemplate reducing fores from here to
San Francisco to $75. This will be a
reduction of $50 from present rates,
Also tliat freight rates be reduced in proportion. This move it is reported is to
be directed against the Union and Central Pacific railways. Among rumors in
Wall street was one to the effect that the
Pacific Mail intend putting ou weekly
steamers in place of fortnightly steamers.
Anothsr report says that the Central
Pacifio to-day formally notified the Union
Pacific that they would hereafter demand fnll local rates on all through business for the Union Pacific.
London, March 20.—Gen. Graham
telegraphs aa follows: "Hasheen, Maroh
20.; 3:30 p. in.—We moved out from
camp at 6:15 this morning, leaving
Shropshire regiment to guard it. On

off the ridge and streaming south towards Taniai. They wero charged by
squadrons of Indian lancers, The cavalry
thon retired towards the guards, Many
of tho enemy passed the guards at the
foot of the hill and made for the hill
west of Hasheen, These wero shelled
by the royal horse artillery while other
parties moving round on onr right were
engaged iu the bush by fifty lancers.
Meanwhile zareeba, with four entrenched
posts ou tbe hill are being formed. The
advanced troops have all relumed to tliis
position nud will return to our camp,
ing the East Surrey regiment with
two Krupp guns, four Gardmers, water
tanks and signal appliance., nt the entrenched position. Our killed are 2
officers and 2 mon Qf British nud ."» Sepoys. Wounded, 2 olficors and twenty-
six men of the British-and I officer ami
10 men of the Indian contingent. Tho
infantry, behaved with great steadiness.
The nutnber cf rebels is estimated at
4,000. Their loss is not known, but a
heavy engagement lasted for live hours.
Tlie Arabs carried off all their dead and
wounded. The native-? report numbers
of Osman Digma's men doserting. They
have become disheartened, To-days
fighting was noticeably of a different
character from that of any ntreoedhig
engagements. The Arabs maintained n
steady rifle fire, retiring sio- ly from each
position held by them and avoiding close
quarters.
ii>Ni>i)N, Mnreh 20.—Another account
of to-day's battle say*i: Tho battle between the British troops aad Osman Dig
ma lasted ijvp Iioyys," ty(tW|tM yfeto nyst
sent to the front to drivo the Arabs from
the hills west of Hasheen. As soon as
possible they were reinforced liy batteries offl urdiner and Krupp guus and by
cavalry. There was a not engagement
for a few hours, during which the British cavalry charged repeatedly upon
the rebels, while the gnus wero worked
with deadly effect whenever their firo
could bo made available. Gnat bravery was displayed on both sides. At
end of engagement the Arabs retreated
slowly toward 'Tamai.'   Arab loss in
killed and wounded is estimated at 600.
Loss to British is 40.    The Arabs dis-
Slaytd desperate bravery. The marines
rove the Arabs from the hills and forced
them to retreat to the plain. Then the
Indiaan troops charged the Arab position
but were outflanked and an unsuspected
body of Arabs succeeded iu getting in
behind their lines. The Indians found
themselves between two fires and fled.
During this retreat they were closely
pressed by the Arabs, who hamstrung
the horses and speared some riders. The
Bengalese fell back in confusion upon
.the English infantry and guards, who
had beeu formed in a hollow square. The
square leisurely retired while the Arabs
were yelling that they had regained their
lost position. At tills juncture the artillery came to the rescue, and a brisk
fire with small shot from the machine
gun, and shells from the Krupps drove
their position. The marines maintained
a steady fire throughout the engagement, but the honors of the .day are
probably due to the Irish Lancers, who
changed the tide ot battle by a desperate
charge, and retrieved the fortunes of
Gen. Graham's command, when they
seemed almost hopeless. The British
troops have returned to thoir former
camp near Suakim.
London, March 20.—Gen. Graham
telegraphs Gen. Wolseley that tho result
of operations has been to establish a
strong position commanding Hasheen
Valley, and protecting the right flank
and hue of communication in ensuing
operations against Tamai. All portions
of the force, he says, worked admirably
and gallantly on very diflicult ground,
covered with high thorn bushes and occupied by the agile and determined enemy, thus showing the troops able to
master the Arabs in any position*.
Suakim, March 20.; 7 p. m. -The British troops have returned to this point,
Osman Digma sent reinforcftnents, numbering one thousand, to Hasheen Thursday night to assist in opposing the Brit-
tish.
Korti, March 20.—Natives state that
the rebels have teturued to Berti and
Shukuk pass and are fortifying those
places. Messengers from Omdurman
say tha name of the new prophet is El
Sautaosi. The latter accused El Mahdi
of disobeying the Koran. El Mahdi
quarrelled with and dismissed his principal ohtef, Abdullah, and installed his
own uncle in his place, 1 be chief's tribe
has since deserted the Mahdi. Rebels
are reduced to eating the pith of palm
trees. The British will evacuate Korti
at the end of the present month.
London, Mar. 21.—De Giers, Russian foreign minister, has given an
olilcial promise that Penjdeh will not
be occupied by Russian troops if the
Afghans withdraw their garrison. Sir
Peter Lumadon informs the British
government that the Russian commanders on the Afghan frontier aro
fomenting a rising m Penjdeh with
a view to making that a pretext for
annexation.
Suakim, Mar. 21. — Corrected returns of the British losses in yesterday's engagement show 21 killed, including 17 of the Indian troops, and
42 wounded, 16 being of the Indian
contingent. The troops in zareeba at
Hasheen at daylight this morning
shelled and dispersed bodies of robots
on the adjacent hills. The wholo
force, except tho guards, will advance
at daybreak to-morrow for the purpose
of constructing zaroebn at a point 7 or
8 miles from the camp. The Berkshire
regiment and marine, will be left to
garrison the aafuoba! tbe remainder of
the troops returning to Suakim.
London, "Aat, 21.—General Graham
has received i pipe line apparatus
necessary to furnish his army with a
full water supply during the inarch to
Berber. He starlit on Tuesday to
make a permanent advance. It is
necessary to secure auoh an occupation
of the country as will permit tho construction of a railway from Suakim to
Berber.    *•        r.--n
Paris, Mar. 21.—It is reported that
De Giers, prime minister of Russia,
has resigned,
London. Mm 21. —A Wellington,
New Zealand, dispatch states that the
authorities havu received nn official
copy of the act passed by the Samonn
parliament for the annexation of the
Samoan Islands to New Zealand.
Panama, Mar. 21.—The governor of
Panama. is reorganizing and strengthening the polico force. The oxmte-
ment has Mimed down and business
haa resume its usual aspect. It is
understood dome arrangement will bo
made whereby 'urther lighting will be
prevented. Colon, remains in the
hands of the rebels. Intelligence from
the interior is favorable to the government, which reports great victories at
Son ceo, derico andGartliagena. Gen.
Viln has protested against the action
of 1 ler Majesty's stoamer Canada and
continues to ..ro on the boats of that
vessel, accusing them of aiding and
abetting tlio tehelii and converting the
English ntaaimrs into rebel blocknders.
London, Mar. 21,—The United Service Gazelle, says that the British Admiralty has completed overy preparation tu send, if necessary, a powerful
fleet to the Baltic within a few daya.
London, March 21.—Both liberal
and conservative political agents ure
manifestly preparing for a genoral election in November next. They almost
unanimously concur in reporting that
of the preseut members of thelmutt'o
of commons almost olio-half will tip-
oliuo to stiiml for re-election. If ihis
calculation is win-act the next parliament will produce one of thu must
thorough political changes over witnessed in England. A majority of the
members uf the houso who it Ib thought
will decline to stand are thu older
tories nnd Whigs. The bulk of these
will not retire from active polities because of udvuneiiii: age aud increasing
physical disability, but beiiiiwu uf profound discontent nt thu pr<>gre*s of
democracy in Great Britain. All tprios
and old whins nro convinced tlmt-the
democratic elements will so largely
control the next houso of commons as
to make parliamentary methods and
position disagreeable lo English gentlemen who will "refrain from politics," aud froni their own standpoint
matters will got worse. If ever thero
is to bu real and established democracy
in England, it will be much hasteuod
by the very disposition shown by the
tories and whig, to run nwuy and avoid
it. The whole tenor of reports from
provincial centres is lu tho effect that'
in the next parliament the number of
aristocrats, military nnd law representatives, will be grently lessened,
and tho number of commercial men,
traders and members nf local bodies in
the house will be astonishingly augmented. Tory agents have advised
thoir leaders to adopt an electoral programme based on democratic lines.
Churchill, the young and erratic tory
member of tbo commons, who in a tit
of disgust with tho clumsy c«n»ei'va-
tisin of his colleagues abruptly started
on a tour tu India, has been asked by
cable to return to England as speedily
ns possible to consult with Salisbury,
his leader, the tory peer nnd with Sir
Michael Hicks Bench, successor iu the
tory leadership in the commons to Sir
Stafford Northcoto. It is generally
believed that Gladstone will withdraw
from the prime ministry and from tbe
commons at tho present session. Gladstone lias recently very often expressed
a desire to resign the leadership of the
liberal party. Some of the premier's
relatives and family friends are urging
liim to retire into the house of lords,
whero he can servo the country by
counsel and influence without sacrificing health and strength as ho must
do if he remains where he is. Tho
Russian military organ, Seel, which
reflects the views of Russian commanders Gen. Komaroff, Geu. TeKernaeff
and others of the war party of Russia,
is urging the seizure of Herat before
the English can fortify the placo. The
Svet argues that as Herat is the center
of commerce for Khoraaseu and 'Fur-
comanin if England is permitted to
hold it the Russian position beyond
the Caspian will be perilous. "Besides," Bays Srtt, "to allow Eugland to
hold Herat would'be showing great
weakness before tho Turcomans. The
English must be chased out of Turcoman territory. The Russian diplomats
in conceding one inch of ground wilt
betray the interests of thoir country.
England will not risk a war for Herat,
for she knows her defeat might involve
India, whereus Russian defeat would
mean nothing more than the maintenance of a territorial statu una."
In Paris'reports that China has mads
overtures for peace nre discredited.
No negotiations, direct or indirect, it
is said, have been opened, and there
are no symptoms that the govornment
ut Pekin is intimidated or uuxious to
secure peace on any terms unfavorable
to China. Members of the Chinese
embassy in London express themselves
hopeful for the cessation of war, but
say it should be brought about by
Franco accepting the territorial concessions formerly made by China, in
Tonquin, without any indemnity.
From China direct come reports that
the army of the empire haa been reinforce and put in readiness to resume
offensive operations in Tonquin. At
Kelung the French remain practically
in a state of siege. The war in Tonquin and Formosa, members of the
embassy say, has not perceptibly affected tho internal prosperity of the Chinese empire.
De Lesscps denies the reports from
New York to the effect that work along
the Panama Canal has resulted in failure. De Lesseps says that his sou
victor having visited Panama and
made a thorough investigation . of
operations along the line of uio canal,
writes, "Pour moi le canal est fait."
No contractors, saya De LossepB, have,
as has been reported, stopped work
because the canal company have failed
to supply them with money, although
ono American contractor was refused
payment for work because he had failed tu comply with the conditions of
tho contract. "I have no fears," says
De Lesseps, "of any stoppage of work
on the canal because of war in Central
America."

SPECIAL DESPATCHES.
Suakim, Mar. 23.— The guards havo
returned from tlio zereeba. The total
British loss during the light on Sunday is 5 oflicers nnd 51 privates killed,
nud 170 wound*!. The rebel loss is
fully 1,500. In the rush a large number of rebels entered a corner of tbe
zereeba, aiid in the desperate fight
which ensued there every Arab was
killed.     .
New York, Mar. 23.—Gen. Grant
retired at 10 o'clock and slept fitfully
until 2 this morning, from which hour
he slept nono. This forenoon he
chatted with Mrs. Sartoris. The patient is riot feeling as strong to-day as
yesterday, owing to undue or 'te-
ment yesterday and wakefulness last
night,'
Suakim, Mar. 23.—The guards at
an early hour this morning were sent
to the zereeba erected yesterday by
Gen. McNeill,, to render assistance
after battle yesterday. Gen, McNeill was found well entrenched in the
zereeba, situated Jeven miles southwest from Suakim. The guards were
sent back by McNeill for water and
provisions. They succeeded in making the return journey unmolested,
A force of infantry and cavalry, with
supplies for the zereeba, escorted by a
convoy of guards, was at once dispatched to Gen. McNeill. A number
of heavy guns have been forwarded to
the front. ,A general advance toward
Taniai will be made to-night by Gen.
Graham. During the advance Suakim
will bo garrisoned by sailors. The
zereeba constructed by Gen. McLean
will ho shifted because of the intolerable effects of the rapid decomposition
of hundred-* of bodies of slain Arabs
lying close around. A spy reports
hostile Arubs .gro«:ng in numbers
around Hasheet.. 'i. ' *at is oppressive; 250 sick and v led to-day
sail for England. Liu-. 'icial accounts place the losses of a Arabs
in yesterday's tight at 1,000, all told.
If this tiguro is correct tlie losses uf
the enemy exceeded those of the British less than in any battle uf the last
tiii'L-t: years. Ostium Digma has 25,000
men at Tamai. Gen. Graham will
reach Taiiini and givo Osman Digma
battlo to-umriTW, It will be a pitched
tight, and probably moro decisive than
any that has yet uccurcd.
Kouti, March 24.—Tho natives report that iu tho sorti beforo the fall of
Ivl-ai'toum Gen. Gordon bmt 200 men
and that Gen. Gordon waa roally killed
by a shot from a gun and his body

Mahdi. Two-thirds of the camels aro
dead. Gen. Graham sent the Indian
troops back to Suakim.
London, Maroh 24. — A dispatch
from Gubrnn, March 17, says: Outwardly all is quiet, but it is reported
the Russians are concentrating towards Herat. It is proposed to withdraw Col. Ridgoway from Penjdeh and
leavo Cant. Ynle there. Measures are
being taken for the defence of Herat.
New York, March 24. -Tho Herald's Ottawa special aays the Dominion government will introduce a bill
on Tuesday which will provide -fur a
poll tax upun every Chinaman ontor-
iiii! Canndn, and will restrict the
number of Chinese immigrants to be
roceivod by steamships or sailing vessels trading between China and this
country on a basis of so many per
ton capacity of such vessels, It ia
also intended to require a registration of tlio names and location of all
Chineso entering the country so that
in the event of anything required in
criminal cases or for -purposes of municipal taxation, their whereabouts
may bo readily ascertained* One of
tho foatures of the bill will bu the
enforcement of Yigid sanitary laws.
The poll tax w|ll only apply to Oht*
neso women and laborers, and not to
merchants, bankers, .or other professional classes of Chinese.
Suakim, Marcli 24.—The sappers
are now engaged in making n road
through tbe bush to Tainai.to convey
provisions aud water to the zareeba
which was the scene of Sunday's
battle. Osman Digma's famous chief,
Taggiah, was killed in Sunday's fight.
La Liiikkta, San Salvador (via Galveston), Mar. 24.—President Barrios
is advancing on Sau Salvador with 15,-
000 men.
Ottawa, Mar. 24.—In tho bouse of
commons Gordon moved for copies of
all correspondence bearing reference
to the appointment of a joint commission with tho U. S. government
for surveying the boundary line between British Columbia and the
United States territory of Alaska. He
stated that to-day tho boundary was
practically undefined. So long as
there were no troubles thero this waB
all right; but u New York paper had
stated recently that uu American
armed expedition under Lieutenant
Sohwatka had traveled 1,000 miles
into British territory east of Alaska,
a'Jii Lieut. Allen was now conducting
ar eipedition three or four hundred
miles into British territory. He could
hardly beliovo the statements truo,
seeing that on the Pacific coast Canadians and Americans lived very harmoniously. He would liko to hear
froni tho government on the point,
and would ue pleased if an assurance
could be given that the boundary lino
will shorty be surveyed. The minister of publio works said the attention
of the govornment had been directed
to the article from the New York
papor. He enquired iuto tbu truthfulness of the article and found there
wns no foundation fur it. The importance of having the boundary survey
had received the attention of tho
government. It would not overlook
the matter, and the motion was carried.
Suakim, Mav- 24.—The Egyptian
troops will be shipped back tu Cairo
to-morrow. A prisoner reports Osman
Digma's men at Tamai sending all the
women and children back into tho
hills and preparing tu mnke a desperate resistance tu tho British advance.
Tho Shropshire regiment, accompanied
by convoys, has started to join Geu.

A REMARKABLE STORY.
He sent lier a letter next morning,
full of love, and of ecstatic realization
that she was his, and that in all his
difficulties lie was sure of her sympathy; but it was understood thnt he
was not to make Buch a breach of all
his habits as to come to soo her; and
Hester was too proud to break through
hers, as she had done that ono morning, in order to see bim. So that
everything remained a secret between
them, and, save for the sudden understanding' into which they had leaped,
the sort of betrothal which both took
for granted, there was no difference
in their outward lives—which waa a
state of things infinitely painful to tho
girl, who lived hev usual daily life with
her mother and her friends in a Btate
of guilty abstraction, thinking of Mm
all tho time, and feeling herself a
domestic traitor. Sho felt that it wiib
but tho shell of her that remained,
following mechanically tlie usual occupations, talking from the lips outward,
absorbed in a long, perpetual reverie
of new consciousness, new hopes and
fears. That socrot world bad need to
bo have been bright to mako up to her
for tho senso of guilt and treachery
with which she entored into it—and it
was not bright. Tho air was dark imd
tremulous as in thut snd valley, Bad,
yet sweet, which, in Danto, lies outside of hell. She never could tell at
what moment some dark, unknown
shape of calamity might appear thruugh
its twilight, coming toward thom; for
Edwai'd hud been driven to her by
anxiety aud trouble, and the senso of
a burden wliich ho could not bear
alono.* What was it? He did uot
tell her in his letter. The othor little
notes he wrote wore but appeals to
her sympathy—petitions to her to
love him, to think of him. "Ah!"
Hester thought to herself, t(no fear of
that—but how?" What was she to
think? iu what way waa hev imagination to follow him groping dimly amid
scenes she did not understand? His
secret was ns u germ of firo in her
hotirt, which liy times blazed tip into
hot flames, devouring her with all the
anguish of that thirst tu know, which
is one of tho tortures of uneasy love.
What was it that troubled hiin so,
what alarmed him ao, that might ruin
and overwhelm him—that might make
him fly, which whs tho moat mysterious
hint of alll But to all these questioiiB
she got no satisfaction. For tho tirst
fow days shu had a little furtive outlet
to her anxiety in questioning Roland,
which she did with a vagno senso of
treachery to Edward, as if she were
endeavoring to surprise his secrets by
a buck way, bnt very little perception
of the false impression which her interest in his communications was making upon Roland, who himself became
day by day moro ready to believe that
marriage might become a possible venture, and that the decision of it rested
chiefly with himself. He know no
* uther reason why she should question
him than interest in himself, and it
was with a grateful zeal tbat lie attempted to gratify a curiosity which
was so legitimate, yot bo unusual. He
explained his trade with that pleasure
which the wisest of men feel ill talking about themselves-, and never
livlned that hor rapid mind passed
everything through one narrow test,
ii e., whether it was possible that it
could concern Edward. She did not
oven remark tho attendrisseinent with
wliich he received horquestioiiB, with
eyes that said volumes. These eyes
overflowed with pleasure and sentiment as he mado his little disquisitions.
."After this." lio said, with a laugh,
"you will ho armed cap-rt-jite against
any doubtful agency, and be able,
when you-like, to speculate for your--
self."
"And why should not I speculate,"
said Hester, "if I had any money? It
is liko fighting, I suppose. Tt feels
like living, they say. But after all it
ia no truo life—only figures, as you
toll me."
"Figures," said Roland, "moan so
much; in this elemental way, they
mean money. And money means—1'
"Figures over again," HestiSr said,
with a certain weary disdain. It was
not possible that this alone could lie
the tragic danger, tho burden of the
soul, that Edward meant. But [inland was thinking his own thoughts,
and Interpreted her comments in a
way of his own.
"It moans must tilings in this
world," he said; "unfortunately, however high-minded wo are, we can do
nothing without it. It means, of
course, show and luxury and gayety,
and all the things you despise; but at
tho same time—It means," he said,
after a littlo pausa, "the Iioubo which
two poople could mako into a paradise.
It means oase of mind, so that a man
can rise every day without anxiety,
knowing that he has enough for overy
claim upon him. Ah! how can I sny
all that it means—you would laugh, or
bo frightened. It means tho right to
love, and the right to say it." Roland
wns making use of his well • worn
artillery, hut of something moro besides, which he had nut quito understood tho existence of — something
which lent a very eloquent tremor to
hia voice and doubled tno seduction of
his eyes.
"Oh! I wns not thinking of anything half so sentimental," snid Hester. Sho never looked at him, to he
affected by his glances, or paid any
attention to his voico. And yet there
had been a moment when Roland's departure made tho world shrink and
look narrow; but ahe remembered
nothing about that now. "To tell the
truth, all I waa thinking of wnsbuy-
ing and selling," she said; "for business means that, doesn't it? Of course,
I suppose, as we muat have money to
live, you may say that money is the
firat thing in life, more necessary than
bread; but I did not moan that."
Conversations which ended in this
way were, howovor, very little serviceable to Hester, for how could sho toll
which of thoso mysteries of tho craft
had entangled Edward, or if any of
them could justify tho seriousness of
his excitement, the tragic sense of a
pouible catastrophe, the wild expedient of flight, which had boen in his
words.   All this talk about the vicissitudes of money was too potty to satisfy
her mind us a reason.. And itill loss
wu that talk calculated to promote
Roland's purpose, who did not enre
very moon what ho was saying bo long
aa he oould recommend himself to her
favorable opinion.    What he wanted
wm to ahow her that the future had
large possibilities of advancement. He
wanted, without committing himself,
or doing anything that could bo afterward commented upon aa "behaving
badly/' to leave upon Hester's mind
a delicate intimation that he meant to
come back, to speak moro-plainly, to
say things mora worthy of her attention; and that she'might be able to
make up har mind in tha meantime,
and not be taken by surprise,   Rol
and was uot so romantic aa to bo unaware that the advantages lay on his
own sido; he had solid gifts to give,
and a position tu offer, which could
not be carelessly considered by any
person of sense. And ho was well
awaro that there was uu crowd of candidates contending for Hester's hand.
She had to him the air of a girl neglected, altogether out of the way of
forming any satisfactory engagement,
almost painfully divested of that
"chance" which Emma lookod at with
such sensible, if matter-of-fact eyes.
Roland, to do lum justice, was all the
moro willing to show hor a romantic
dovotion -on thia account, but it kept
him free from anxiety about his own
hopes. Thero had been Harry, indeed—but sho would uot havo Harry.
Aud Edward, ho was awaro, had paid
her furtive "attentions" at Ellon
Morridew's parties; but what could
Edward do? Ho could not pay serious
addresses to any one, in his circumstances, far less to Hester; and bo
was not the follow to marry a girl
without money, and under tbe cold
shade of Catherine's disfavor. This
last was one of tho things that made
Roland himself hesitate; but he thought
it might bo got ovor. And there
could be no doubt that his mind had
made great strides toward making
itself up during this Christmas visit.
But it wus a short visit, un tho whole,
for ho had nut much timo to spare for
pleasure, and his business had been
sumnnirily ended. Emma thought it
was owing to Hester's interference
that she was left behind, Reginald
Merridew having not yet "spoken;"
but there was in reality a certain sympathy in Roland's mind with his sis
tor's honest deBiro to be settled, and
thero would be much convenience if
it could it bo accomplished, he felt.
He went away, accordingly, slightly
depressed by Kjestor's indifferent farewell, and remembering tho look of
over-clearness in hor eyes when ho had
gone away the first time with a sort of
fond regret. He was suro that day
that she had shed a fow tears over his
departure, of which there was no
appearance now. But soou ho recovered his spirits, asking himself to look
the situation in the face. Who else
wns thore? What rival could he havo?
There wiib nobody. She wiib stranded
in that old Iioubo as if it had been a
desolate island, And she could not
he content to vegetate there forever,
a girl of her spirit. Thore was a practical element in Roland's character,
notwithstang his romantic eyes.
And Heater was so ungrateful that
his departure was almost a relief to
her. She forgot altogether that she
had cried tho first time when ho went
away, and she was .glad to be set freo
from tho hope, which at tho same time
was a fear, of finding out something
about Edward's troubles from his
chance revelations. Her mind turned
now with unbroken engornoss fo the
sole means of intercourse which she
had with her lover, wliich could be
calculated upon with any freedom,
which were Ellen's parties—the Thee
cfaiwttirtea. It aeeniod incredible that
her entire existence should be concentrated in a weekly assembly so frivolous, so thoughtless and nonsensical,
and that till tiioBe grave and troublous
thoughts should seek interpretation in
a dance. But so it was. The first of
fcheiil brought her only disappointment,
and that of a kind that she felt almost
maddening—for Edward did uot appear. Hu gave her no warning, wliich
was cruel, and when she found, after
hours of waiting, that ho wub not expected, the shock of resentment and
shame aud dismay almost stunned her;
but pride carried the dny. She threw
herself iuto the current with a surt of
desperation, and held her place with
the gayest; then entered, somber and
silent, upon another week of suspense.
The second occasion was not so bad.
Ho was there, and appropriated hor as
usual, and breathed hints which kopt
her iu a whirl of excitement.
"How can I explain to you,'" he
said, "here? Aud oven if I could ex-
plain to you, I don't want to do it, for
it is all miserable trade, whicli you
would not understand—which I don't
wish you to understand."
"But I want to understand it, Ed
ward. You don't think how cruel it is
to me to tell me just so much, thon
leave mo outside.'1
"Should I not have told you so
much!" ho said, looking at her. "You
are right. I believe you are right,
Hestor; but my heart waa running
ovor, and to no one else could I say a
word. I could not put a little bit of
my burden upon any one but you.
know it was selfish dear."
"Oh, Edward, it is not that. I will
boar your burden; 1 am glad to help
you; I would bear it all for you if I
could," she cried, with her bright oyes
widening, her checks glowing with enthusiasm. "Don't you know that I
would bear it all if 1 could ? It is not
that. But tell me, only tell me a little
moro."
Ho shook his head.
"Hester," lio said, "that is not what
a man wants in a woman; not to go
and explain it all to her with pen aud
ink, and tables and figures, to make
hor understand as ho would havo to do
with a man. What ho wants, dear, is
very different—juat to lean upon you
—to know that you sympathize, and
think of me, and fcul for me, und believo in me, and that you will share
whatever comes."
Hoster said nothing, but her countenance grew vory grave.
"Don't you think that a woman
could do all that, and yot that it would
bo easier for her if she understood
what it was, and why it was?'' sho
said, after a pause.
"Dear," said Edward, gaging at her
with slowing eyea. He wan in a
hopeful mood, and he allowed himself
to indulge tho lovo and pleasure he
felt in her, having bound hor to him
with a chain moro fast than iron.
"Darling! waa it evor known that a
woman, a girl liko you (if there ever
was a girl like my Hestor), thought of
what would be easiest? And you who
would boar it all, you said."
"So I should--gladly; but theu I
should understand."
"My only love! understanding is
nothing, it matters nothing: another
fellow, any man, a clerk in the office,
would understand. I want your sym
pathy.   I want—you."
"Oh, Edward!" she cried, "you
have me and my sympathy—oven if
you were wrong you should have my
sympathy. But is it just, is it good,
do you think, that you should ask all
that and tell me nothing? I am a
woman, bnt I am not a fool. I can
understand moat things. Try mo
toll me—I will aet my mint! to it,
Sympathy that la ignorant cannot bo
so good as sympathy that knows."
Ho made a littlo pause, and then
he said, looking at her, she felt
severely, with a sooff in his voice,
"And whore in thia explanation to
tako place? Will you appoint to meot
nio somowhere with my balance-sheet
and my vouchers? Perhaps you will
come to my room at tho bank? or appoint ah accountant whom you can
trust?"
