current Events and Opinions.
In the Canadian house of commons tlie other day, in reply to Mr-
Blake, Sir John Macdonald said
that no application had been made
to the United States government
for permission ta take Canadian
troops through their territory. We
think it is u great pity such an application has not lieen. made, the
troops Buffered' very severely on the
route norlh of Lako Superior, and
some of them were rendered almost
unfit for duty in consequence of
what may be unnecessary hardships.
It is stated by some Reform papers
that the troops were forced over the
C.P.R, so as to furnish a pretext
under which the government might
be able to nssist the syndicate out
of tho public purse. This may be
true, and it may riot.
Both Democrat and Republican
Americans are steadily finding out
what manner of man they have to
deal with in President Cleveland.
To many on botli sides of politics
he has proved iu no small measure
disappointing. Hungry Democrats
of the old school are disappointed
because there has been no wholesale
redistribution of spoils as they
thought they hud a right to expect
Rabid Republicans who flouted him
as a new and unheard-of-man, with
u thick neck and a small head, are
sorely disappointed at the way in
which their shallow predictions are
being falsi6ed. The better class of
Republicans, and not a few, perhaps, of the Democrats also, are
pleasantly disappointed iu the exact
measure of the unpleasant disappointments of tho others. It is
evidently Cleveland's intention to
bring about a fusion, as far as he
can, of the best elements in the two
parties. Any loss he may sustain
in the all but inevitabln desertion
of a large part of the Irish-American section will be more tban made
up if lie can confirm thu allegiance
of the Independents and secure the
confidence of oLhers of a like stamp
in the ranks of the Republicans.—
Toronto Globe,
Major General Middleton, who
has gone io Winnipeg to lake military direction of the campaign
against Riel, litis seen a great deal
of active service. He ii-st became
known in Canada at the time of the
"Trent" afl'air as a major in tlie 18th
regiment. The headquarters of,
that corps was at Hamilton, but
Major Middleton spent a great deal
of his time iu Montreal, where he
is widely known and universally
liked. The General received his
first commission as ensign on the
30th December, 1842, and saw his
first active service iu 1846, in the
southern part of New Zealand,
whore lie took part in the attack on
Wanganu. He afterwurds served
in India during the Sunthal rebellion, and the never-to-be-forgotten
Sepoy mutiny of 1857-58. He was
orderly officer to Gen. Franks iu the
action of Sultanpore, and subsequent affairs on the advance to
Lueknow. At the siege and capture of that eity he wns A. D. C.
to Gen. Luard, aud took part in the
storming of Bank's house, aud ihe
Martiniere, wliere his gallant conduct gained liim the brevet of Major. The General subsequently
served in nearly all .he principal
actions during the mutiny, and was
time and again specially mentioned
in home despatches, and has recoived the order of Commander of
the Bath. Lord Melgund, who has
been appointed second in command,
is secretary to tho Governor-General. Ho belongs to a good old Scottish family, of which his fnihor, the
Earl of Minto, is head. We notice
that several of our Canadian contemporaries aro of the opinion that
Lord Melgund has seen uo active
service, but in this they are mistak
en. Shortly after attaining his majority he joined ihe Scots Fusilier
Guards. He was iu Paris during
the Commune and tasted the hardships of campaigning with lhe Carl-
ist army in Spain. He was present
at the bombardment of Nikopolis,
and liad a narrow escape from being
shot by Bashi Ba/ouks whilst on
the staff of Riouf Pasha. Lord
Melgund also took his share in the
Afghan war under General Roberts,
Afterwards, while in Kgypt, he was
appointed captain in the Mounted
Infantry, was severely wounded at
Magyr, and two days later was at
Tel-el-Kebir, where Sir Garnet Wolseley won his peerage. Surely nil
this is sufficient "active service" to
enable a man to acquire generul confidence in his ability as a soldier.
Lord Melguud's military training
has been such as to specially fit him
for the expedition in which he now
holds such high rank. — Scottish-
American.

VOLUME.27
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. 0., WEDNESDAY, APRIL 22, 1885.
NUMBER 32
tract conveys i the impression that
our contemporary does not represent
public opinion across the sound, or
thnt public opinion tliere is strangely inconsistent. After asserting
that Britain stands alone, without
allies, iti the'face of a Russian war,
and mildly intimating that sho may
get the worst of it, the Post very
ungenerously goes on to j say: The
United Statosj in the coming struggle will occupy an enviable position.
Far removed from the scene of the
conflict, and with no possibility of
being drawn into the vortex of war,
this country can reap whatever of
good may como from itl while the
A merican people can look upon the
struggle with all the quiet indifference and .calm .unconcern thnt the
Roman populace displayed when
ranged row above row in the amphitheater watching the death grapple
between two wild beasts. To the
highest degree cau we display the
"cold neutrality of an impartial
judge." The preponderance of sympathy, so far as any will be shown
by the American people, will undoubtedly be with Russia, While
it is true that the institutions and
laws of England are nearly allied to
those of America; while ifc is true
that the two peoples speak the same
language and are to a certain extent
sprung from the same stock, it is
impossible to forget that England
has been the steadfast enemy, and
Russia the steadfast friend, of the
American people. The wounds so
cruelly inflicted by England upon
the United States during the grent
rebellion were too deep to be forgotten in a score of years; the earnest
sympathy and lieurty helpfulness of
Russia were too much needed and
too much appreciated not to be cherished in gt*ateful memory. Whatever the various motives of the two
nations may have been, tho fact remains imbedded in history that during our mighty .struggle England
sought to harass the American government in every way possible, took
every advautage of America, threatened hor with war, menaced her by
massing armies on her borders, and
iu every way short of open and
avowed warfare sought to compass
the destruction of the Union; while
Russiii, when England und France
were plotting actively against us,
whilo Austria and Prussia wore supporting them with menacing notes
to the United States and open en*
courngemenb to tho Confederacy,
stood steadfast and alone, the powerful though solitary friend 'ei- the
American Union. Can .it be forgotten that when all Europe was
threatening our country, tho Russian emperor sent to our government
the memorable message: f Wo'desire
inove all tilings the preservation of
the Americr.n Union nsonesiugle
nnd indivisible nation"? Ci>n it be
forgotten that Russia stood ready
with armies and fleets to battle for
the Union us soon as England or
France took the field against us?
These things cannot and will not bo
forgotten, nnd whatever the right
and wrong of the present quarrel may be, whatever the truo
interests of civilization, it cannot be
that tho American peoplo will forget either Russia's help or England's
hate.
We have a good deal of respect
generally for the opinions of the
Seattle Post, but tho following ex-
lu a recsnt lecture Edison, the in*
ven tor, said :----*'The dream of certain
French and German ecientisis that
electricity may be transformed directly
from the nulnr energy ia a wild chimera, or at Wat it ia remote and untrustworthy; but that it will bo derived in
some simple and inexpensive way directly from conl, which is polar heat
and light sLured up by nature, I behove
to be a certain fact. Tho present
mcluii'K of producing electricity are,
nl thoir best, very cumbersome and
expensive. Er.penaive boilers, engines
and dynamo macliines eve the media
through which the carbon of the coal
is transmitted into olecirici-y, and with
enormous waste at that. A largo
amount of expensive labor, tun, is
Deeded, so that witli tho coat of the
plant and the labor to operate it, the
ultimate product ia very costly. Ouce,
however, the secret of the direct pro*
duetiou of the electrical energy from
coal is discovered, a marvellous revolution will take place. The coat to the
consumer will be very small. From
ono great central station iu a city electricity will ho furnished tn give light,
heat ami ['Mitt,. As l. •inrw, pul*
lie buildings, factories and workshop*,
and at so reduced a coat aa to materially lesson tho expenses of life and work.
This ia something more than a dream.
It is a future fact which many now
living will probably aee resitted. Such
a direct transformation of coal into
electricity would utilize BO per ceut.;
uow by the process of turning the
energy of carbon into heat, heat into
energy, of motion, and this into electrical uitergy, at least 90 per cent, is
lost." 	
According to the best available information, the following is tho present
distribution of tho Russian forces enst
of the Caspian: At Merv, Yulatnn and
Boriyasi, CM. Ahkhaiiuif has 0,000
Russian troops, 1,000 Turcoman hone
»»il ■ 10 guns. At SaraUiB there ate
2,000 men, but a portion of these him
been moved to the Murgab. At Pul-i-
Khatun snd Zulfluar there are detachments of Cossacks, a body of 160 of
these horsemen at each place. At
Mul-i-Kliiflhti, «ui the Kushk, there
are 000 trained Sunk Turcomans. The
garrison nf Aslikshad, which is nominally only 4,000 men and twenty-four
guns, will he ium-timl to 8,000 when
(ho roi n force men I a of 0,000 men sent
from the (.'minimis have arrived.
These tire at present only en, routo to
their destination. At the same lime
it la believed that an attempt will be
nnde tn ruinfurcu the Merv garrison
from Khiva and Turkestan. —London

WrdiirMlay Morning, April 33,1885. ■
Among the Ounadian volunteers
who have responded to tlie country's
call nnd gone to aid in quelling the
north-west rebellion, are several
relatives of well-known persons.
Sir John Maodonaltl has a son in
the force; Hon. Edward Blake,
leader of the opposition, has a cousin antl a nephew, and there are six
oE the soldiers from his Toronto law
office. Mr. A.*G. Smith; son of Mr.
Marcus Smith, C. E., is a member
of the Queen's Own which has gone
to tlie front. Many of these young
fellows will encounter hardships
which will contrast strangely with
their past experiences.
Important Clauses.
An important bill has been
brought before the Canadian house
of commons by Mr. Mulock respecting railways; and as it aims at tliu
prevention of favoritism and monopolies, so common and so destructive
to trade, we give below two of its
clauses: "It shall be unlawful for a
railway company to charge or receive any greater rato of compensation for the transportation of goods,
similar in quantity and kind, for a
shorter than for a longer distance,
wliich longer distance includes the
shorter. It shall be unlawful for a
railway company to charge a higher
rato to one person than to another
for transporting, receiving, loading,
unloading or storing goods similar
in quantity and kind." These
clauses are just what the people of
this province would like to see upon
the statute book in view of the early
opening of the Canadian Pacific
Railway. If the tariff rates are to
be adjusted upon principles similar
to those which prevail upon other
transcontinental roads, it is ex-
tromely important that there should
be a wuy of reaching the grievance
when first it presents itself. It is
not improbable tbat the people of
this province may have to use the
whole of their force for protection
against railway monopoly and discriminating rates.
• Hr. Omlcnlonk's Defense.
Mr. Onderdonk, contractor for
tlie western end of the C.P.H., has
attempted to make a defense against
the complaints wliich have appeared
respecting the excessive charges
made on the railway. The defense
is disappointing. It begins by an
announcement that he has decided
to make a reduction in the tariff on
coal oil and flour because he has
come to the conclusion that suoh a
reduction would benefit himself.
Beyond that, he does not encouruge
the hope that any reductions may
be expected, unless it can be first
made clear that the profits of tho
contractor (himself) will be thereby
increased. This announcement has
the merit at least of being honest
and specific. It reminds one of the
days of ring rule in the city of New
York, when Boss Tweed, after stealing millions of municipal funds, put
his hands in his pockets und coolly
asked: "Well, gentlemen, what ure
you going to do about it1?" Mr. Onderdonk demands and obtains exorbitant fees from those persons who
have occasion to make use of a government railway, built and equipped
at the public expense; and when a
remonstrance is ofl'ered he coolly
says; "Let me assure you that I
shnll always consider this suggestion
most fully, and if it will seem to
me more profitable at any lime for
the contractors to take freight up
for extremely low rates it will be
done, Otherwise, if it should not
seem to be iu their interest to do
so, I cannot promise any change."
This seems to be Mr. Onderdonk's
ultimatum; and when the Colonist
pretends to find iu it "a promise of
future concessions" it simply shows
its unwillingness or unfitness to
comprehend a very plain declaration. Tho sole condition upon which
a reduction may be expected is that
a scale of reduced rates would be
moro profitable to the contractor.
There is only one circumstance, as
far as wc can see, that would bring
about tliis condition, and that is
competition from other curriers.
But how can other carriers compete
successfully with tlie railway contractor? They must tirst go to the.
expense of supjllyingthemselves with
steamers and teams necessary to do
a carrying trade, whereas the eon-
tractor is furnished with all the
necessary appliances by the govern
ment. The road has been built by
tht government, ironed by the government, and equipped with rolling
stock whioh the government must
take over when it has been completed. Thu contractor, therefore, is
required to put none of his own
capital into the road. Ilo has been
put in possession of a roadway and
equipment which it cost millions of
dollars to supply, but for which he
paid nothing, and with this tremendous advantage he invites private
parties to compete with liim for the
carrying trade of the province. If
such competition is possible tho circumstance furnishes proof that the
railway rates are exorbitant. Mr.
Onderdonk does not state the case
with fairness. The country has
nothing to do with the manner in
which combinations were formed
against him, or the amount of money
he spent in the country. The public is not responsible for combinations, if they existed, and the money
spent was uot Mr. Onderdonk's, but
came out of thu Dominion treasury.
If he had fairly stated the case he
would have mentioned that he and
the subsidized steamboat Hue formed a combination by means of which
the ordinary carriers of the country
were sent to the wall, and the wholo
carrying trade was forced to go by
the railway. Having removed all
opposition he made use of the gov
eminent road which cost him noth
ing to exact charges the exorbitant
nature of which he seems utterly
unable to explain away. Now
he defies the public by saying that
he does not propose to reduce these
rates unless it suits his purpose so
to do, and the Colonist chips him on
the back and congratulates the
country that the contract "fell into
such strong hands us those of Mr.
Onderdonk." The picture is truly
suggestive ; but what are the people
going to do about it! Mr. Onderdonk could not carry a pound of
public freight over the railway if
the Dominion government chose lo
forbid it. The government 1ms
hitherto pleaded ignorance of the
circumstances, and neglected to interfere. The plea of ignorance can
no longer servo as a shield from
public condemnation. It is the Ottawa government upon whose shoulders tho whole responsibility rests,
and redress must come speedily if
that government expects to escape
from the eflects of a remembrance
of this fact. One good result of the
agitation which Tiik Columbian has
endeavored to stir up is that two
lines of steamers now run through
to Yale, Tins is a matter for solid
congratulation, but it does not lessen
the wrong which attaches either to
the Dominion government or Mr
Onderdonk.

Onr Defences.
The Canadian Gazette (London,
Eng.) usually keeps a keen watch
over matters pertaining to the interest of this Dominion. In a recent issue it says: "There is no
cause for surprise that attention is
now being directed to the defenceless condition of the coast of British
Columbia. The present political
outlook gives a cogency to representations which have frequently
been urged before, but wliich hitherto have been consistently ignored.
And in the circumstances of to-day
a plain statement of the facts of the
case should bo sulficiont to secure
action by the government. The
simple truth is that tho whole coast
of British Columbia is undefended.
Though boasting several natural
harbors of the first class, none of
them are protected by military
works. In the past this condition
of things has been full of danger.
As Sir H. Maxwell reminded the
house of commons last week, prior
to the ascent of our fleet to Constantinople a few years ago, Russian
ships of war were cruising ofl' the
coast of British Columbia. Two
powerful Russian ironclads were
there, but there was absolutely no
British force to opposu thom, and
no adequate means of protection.
In future, if things remain thus, the
risks run will bo increased. For
when the Canadian Pacifio Railway
is once completed, every month will
add to thn commercial value of the
Pacific province, not to Canada only,
but to the empire at largo. The
strategic and commercial reasons
for the adequate defence of British
Columbian ports, strong as they are
now, will be infinitely stronger then.
It is to be hoped, therefore, that tlie
government will recognize that the
time for action has fully arrived,
and the duty of giving ample protection to that portion of the empire
is not ono in which their responsibility can in the least degreo lie in
doubt."

High License.—The workings of
the Harper high license law in Illinois
havo beeu fully Bet forth in a letter
from the Hon;' W. J. Onahan tp Bishop
Ireland. In Chicago in 1884, the saloons yielded a revenue of-$1,500,000,
against $381,804.85 the previous year,
when the saloon rate was $52. In
1884 the number of licensed saloons in
Chicago was 3,180, while iu 1883 it waa
3,777, and in 1882-3, 919. In the
State of Illinois, at large, the results of
high license have naturally been more
marked than in Chicago alone. In this.
State under th« Harper law the number of! saloons has decreased from 13,-
000 to. 9,000, and the revenues have
increased fmm $700,000 to §4,500,000.
Iu Michigan thp license is not as high
as in Illinois. Jn the former State
there is a tax ?300 for'distilled liquors
aud 8200 for malt Under this law,
however, the number of saloons in
Michigan has fallen off froin 4,000 tn
about 3,800. In Missouri, under the
Downing high license law, accounting to
the Si/ Louis Republican of September
lOtli,' 1884, the numbor of drinking
places has been reduced more than 12
per cent, up to that time, while the
county revenue had. been increased
from $358,000 to $1,164,000. High
license has reduced the numbor of
Baloons in Minneapolis from 517 to
274, and at the samo time has raised
tho licenso revenue from §51,000 to
$139,000. A similar ell'ect is anticipated in St. Paul, which is about to
try the same excellent medicino. Oregon has pronounced in favor of high
license, thereby joining in tho great
popular move of the day. The restraint aud absolute equolchiug of the

it would be necessary at stated intervals to adorn his cell iu conspicuous

Mr.'Justin Choiioweth, of Nanaimo, has written a number of letters
to tlie free Press mi the Chinese question, somo of wliich are worthy of
public attention. The last, of the
sories, so far as thoy have been mado
public, is as follows: "The Dominion
government havo whittled tho administration of justico down to a fine
point iu bo fur as thnt article iu its
application may relate to the Chinese
in this provinco. In the Canadian
parliament Mr. Shakespeare recently
directed attention tu the fact ihat tlio
Chinese in Britisli Columbia penitentiary were unjlistly favored by a special
exemption from the application tif tlie
rule which required all convicts to
havo their hair closely cropped, Iu
tho debate which followed on that subject Sir John A. Macdonald said: ''If
it is grcntor punishment to the Chinaman than to the white man to have
his hair removed, I do not think he
should receive greater punishment than
the whito man." Tho act of clipping
the hair dues nut cause any bodily
pain. Viewed as a punishment it can
only bo considered iu relation to the
mental eflects which it may produce
on each Beparate individual dependent
on his idiosyncrasy that sutlers the
operation. Iu executing to their full
extent the principles of justico established with such nice distinction by
thu Canadian department of justice,
giving oxnet and equal justice to all
men, the jurist cannot separate individuals by a direct nice lino with any
greater degreo of correct ness than a
meteorologist might establish an isothermal of temperature op a parallel of
latitude. lu this matter nf hairsplitting, considered as a punishment,

Editor Columbian.—In your issue of
tbe 4th inst., the reove of Surrey has
again appeared on the defensive. It is
gratifying to have those rather unpleasant rumors contradicted aud to hear
him affirm that lie was not an interested
party in the granting of the license, that
tha bauds of oddfellowship had not been
used to secure names to the petition
therefor, and that as there is a bylaw in
the municipality his uction in granting
the license was not in violation of the
law. His denials, however, would have
been quite as convincing if they had
boen given with less emphasis and more
grace. To characterize men supposed at
least to he unknown as "sanctimonious
hypocrites," "pitiably ignorant," "highly
imaginative moralists,,L "cowardly libellers," and "malicious liars," may be to
some minds more courageous timn to

Not Unanimous.
Editor Columbia^, —I seo by your
issue of the 18th that Dr. Mathers makes
the assertion that the doctors were unanimous in tho opinion that the late W. J.
Watson's death was caused by typhoid
fever. Did he forget that the doctors all
expressed the opinion that there was
sufficient cause for death in the condition
of the lungs and spleen ? The only point
of difference there was as to which was
primary—the disease of tlie spleen and
lungs or the enteric Bymptoms. As we
have a history of the deceased having
had malarial fever for eieht months previous to his residence in this country and
hud never enjoyed good health since, it
is certainly fair to presume that the primary cause of death was chronic malarial
poisoning. This viow certainly corresponds with tho clinical history of the
case. In giving this opinion, my only
object is to establish a truth as clearly
demonstrated by the investigation.—
Yours truly, John Garrow.

In Case of War.
Editor Columbian.—I xm glad to Bee
that you have taken up the question df
the defence of this place and Burrard
Inlet, in case of war with Russia. True,
there is little here to tempt an enemy,
but it would scarcely be wise to rely
upon that; and wi Bhould not forget
that if we overlook or neglect the natural strength of Burrard Inlet, it does
not follow that the Russians will overlook it. I am not ft military mau, and
my ideas on such subjects maybe crude;
but it appears to me that If the Russians
should seize and fortify Burrard Inlet,
the British Lion would be apt to crack a
few of his front teeth beforehe turned
the Bear out, while the whole province
would bo at the mercy of the latter
animal. On the other baud, with Burrard Inlet fortified by tho British, and a
good store of coal and warlike material
stowed away in a safe corner therein, we
should have an impregnable harbor of
refuge, Bhould Russia gain, for a time,
command of the soa, ami we would retain control of the C. P. R., by which
reinforcements of all kinds could reach
us. Your readers will be obliged to you
if you continue to call attention to this
matter. Civilian,

ring lo those gentlemen who declined to
affix th.-ir names to cither petition, ho
assigned as their reason "that they were
undecided as to whether it would bo advantageous to the welfare of the aattlement or uot to have a hotel opened and
licensed to sell liquor here." As this
fallacy has been thoroughly exposed by
your correspondent "Surrey," to whose
statement Mr. McDougall has cither forgotten or forbsrne to reply, I need not
here dwell upon it. Again, to support
the position he had taken at the licensing
court he cites tbe municipal aet of 1881,
which, he says, "does uot make auy provision for hearing any complaints/' He
will doubtless remember that at the sitting of tho licensing court on the Kith
ult., the petition asking for the granting
of the license was recoived with evident
approval sinco it elicited no comment,
but the petitioners agfinit the grunting
of the license were told that "this was
uo place to bring iu objections." Does
the municipal act make explicit provision
for hearing requests for the granting of a
license exclusive of personal application
therefor? Air. McDougall himself tells
ns "that applicants for licenses," under
this act, "are not required to have a
two-thirds majority ef the residents'
signatures iu favor of his application."
Perhaps, then, he will explain the difference, in a legal point of view, between
requests for and objections against the
granting of a license, why the one is iu
and the other out of place? Wo are,
nevertheless, assured by liim that he 1ms
acted "impartially" in this matter. Hut
does the municipal act make no provision
for the hearing of complaints ? Por
what purpose, wo ask, does the act stipulate that public notice shall he given by
the applicant for a licenso by two or
mure posters in conspicuous places in tlie
municipality ? And why should the license be granted iu open court? When
these questions are properly answered it
will be seen whether objections are out
of place. Nothing can be more out of
harmony with tho spirit, if not the letter, of British law thau to say, "you
have no right to bring In objections." It
is very well, though it be evasive, to
assume as tho reeve has done, that the
tiroper place to lodge complaints is in tho
cgislativc hall. But temperance people
do not require to be told this. It Ib as
much their business to prevent, if possible, the vending of liquor iu Mud Hay
ns to seek the suppression of the traffic
by procuring aud bringing iuto force
legislative enactments. To argue that
tho smaller executive bodies of our province havt, as In the lato case, power to
carry out the law irrespective of the will
of the majority and particularly of those
mainly interested is, to say the least, to
tread on very dangerous ground. Such
on interpretation of the law is, if I mistake not, the very opposite uf what wus
intended and invests every public ollicer
with the authority of a little shah. The
assumption that our public meu are sovereigns and uot agents of tho peoplo is
manifestly untenable and involves a principle subversive of civil liberty, Pursuant of this every licensing court nud
municipal council cmilil he a star-
oluimbor presided over by an autocrat.
Yot this is tho view Mr. McDougall
seems to have taken iu that "impartial
and independent" course which no declares he would ngaiu pursue. If, in another place, instead uf riinliclirrh/, ho
hnd written riittiteatinly, his observation wuuld have been more correct aud
would not have partaken of the nature
uf a uhtil'fle Incapable of any proof, Hut
this, mayhap, is a la/istm tptillue.- Yours

KW8 FROM AU PARTS OF TNI WNtfc
London, April 17.—The Daily News
this morning says the government has
not yet decided upon the amount of
credit to be asked, which will depend
upon the developments between now
and Tuesday. It is reported that the
amount will be £6,000,000. Inanedi-
torial the News says: Tho belief that
peace will be maintained increases. We
trust thut the belief will bo justified.
It is better to make needy concessions
ourselves than to trust to the mediation
of a third power, lt is sometimes said
that the frontiers of Russia and British
India must soon be conterminous. That
is probable, Russia is rapidly advancing iuto inter *e»i»n Rime*- . Hi\ch an
event would probably lie attended, by
some advantages. /The subjugation of
pillaging Afghans eithor to Russia or
England would doubtless improve their
internal condition, but at present England is bound to protect and respect the
polioy of Afghans which would form a
fieaper defense of India than would
line/and transferring them into armed
cruisers.
Paris, April 18.—Tlie Le Paris announces that an outbreak of a military
conspiracy on a vast seal* has occurred
in Spain.
Paris, April 18.—A Russian Prince,
at present iu this city, received a telegram from the Czar, iu which the latter
conveys the expression of strong hope
that peace will be preserved between
England ami Russia by means of a mutual concession. M. DeFreyciuet read
to the French cabinet at a meeting this
afternoon a number of dispatches concerning the Afghan dispute. All the
dispatches indicate that peaceful ideas
prevailed among all those occupying positions of control on both sides.
London, April 18.—The Biitish admiralty havo been in successful negotiation with Chili for the. purchase of a
part of the Chilian uavy. Four torpedo
boats have already been bought. Orders have beeu issued for the immediate
dispatch of these torpedo boats to Vancouver Island for use in the Nortii Pacific
ocean in cose of emergency.
London, April 18.—The bill to euable
the British Australian colonies to federate, which was introduced last Thursday in the house of lords by Earl Derby,
miuister for the colonies, contains clauses
for the declaration of the doctrine of
state rights in its most liberal form.
One of these clauses enacts that any one
colony shall always have power to withdraw from the federation at its own discretion at auy time without consulting
the other members of the federation.
The other clause empowers the legislature ef any colony iu the federation to
override past decisions of the federal
council. It is believed tbat every one
of the Australian colonies except, perhaps, New South Wales, will oppose the
adoption of either of these clauses.

.30th of March, the day the battle on the
Kushk was fought. A telegram received
since wo -sent ours is dated at Terpnl,
and until deciphered we shall bs unable
to say anything further upon this branch
of the subjeot. The fact that the Russian commander was aware of the agreement of the 17th of March before the
30th of March, and the question as to
whether or not he acted upon instructions or contrary to them concerning
that agreement, will form tho subject of
future communications Iwtweon this government and Russia. In regard to the
reported establishment of a Russian administration at I'enjdeh, the government
knows nothing officially and must await
fuller information. Gladstone concluded
by saying: The government will on Monday or Tuesday next nsk the house to
sanction a vote of credit. When this
is requested we shall state how much
money wo want and what it is wanted
for. ' We will then probably he able to

Vienna, April 20. — The Prendblatt
learns that the English government has
wanted English traders at Black sea
ports to be prepared to leave.
Lonron, April 20.~The situation of
the Russia-Afghan question is again
very serious owing to Russia Increasing
her demands to such au extent that it
will be impossible for England to accept
such terms. M. Degiers has apparently
decided not to yield a single iota to Karl
Granville. It is now feared that Russia
hns overstepped tho bounds of British
forbearance, as it is asserted by high authority that England will never succumb
to these latter demands of the Russian
premier. Despatches from Cronstodt
state that the Russian fleet tliere haa
been ordered to prepare for war instantly, and that ,V2 Russian men-of-war have

controversy with France concerning tlir
suppression of the iton/iAore-Kgyptiati.
If England allows France's demands for
the withdrawal of the decree nf suppression, and admit the punishment of utli-
vials who executed tbe decree, the Stan-
thud thinks it will make a serious mistake. The Ltosphore, it says, was justly
suppressed, and if it be allowed to resume its audacious career, Kngland will
confess more flagrantly than over tlmt iu
Egypt she has undertaken a task which
she has neither ability to execute nor

Penjdeh. The Afghans evince great
anxiety to learn the English policy in

Brussels, April 21.—A cipher dispatch received from St. Petersburg
last night announces a fresh advance
of Russian forces upon tbe Afghan
country. Tho dispatch also says thore

in northern Hindoostan against England.
Warsaw, .April 21.—Tho Tayblatt
announces that it is the intention of
Russia immediately to make a descent
upon Herat, capture it and strongly
fortify tho place. It also states that

Panama, April 21.—The peace commission from Panama reached Buena
Ventura on Friday. The commission

ship Boyaca is towing an English hulk
and a canal launch iB towing the Italian bark Geneva with 1,000 mon on
board who will attack Aizpurn at Panama. The revolutionary leader avows
tliat he wilt resist this force, and states
that 'their presence is an invasion of
one sovereign state by another aud ia
net n national effort"to enforce authority. Troops are reported to be em-
barikng at Buen Venluna for thia place.
Serious trouble is expected, and it ia

at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. Abuut teu
yenrs go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George I'iggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; ami W, S. UiiBScll, .superintendent uf the tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Sinco that dato the business has
been booming. A further stimulus wns
given '.<* tho concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to tho organ-manii-

A REMARKABLE STORY.
(Continued. I
"Then I nHk your pardon," said the
girl, folding lior hands. "I would do
it on my kuocs, but you would think
tliat was—for effect. I should think
no myself in your place. You do right
to despise us: only this—oh, God holp
ua, God help us—I never know—"
"Girl," cried Catherine, roughly,
"the man you lovo (I supposo) lias just
Hod away, so far as I can soo, dishonored and disgraced, and leaving you
forever! And yet you can stop to think
about the effect. I do not think you
can have any heart,"
Hester mado no reply. Sho had
reached that point which is beyond
the heights of sensation. She hnd
fait everything thnt heart could feel.
There were no mure tears in her. nor
anger nor passion of nuy kind. She
stood speechless, lot any one say whnt
they would to her. It might all bo
true.
"I do nut think you enn havo any
heart," cried her passionate opponent.
"If.it had been mo at yuur age, anil I
had loved him, when he throw mo
from him so I should have died."
Thero came a ghost of an awakening to Hester's face, a sort of pitiful
smile of iicquieBCQiicQ, Porhaps it
might be an. Another, more finely
tempered, more impassioned, more
high and nuble than she, might havu
done that; but for her, poor sun), she
had not died, She could not help it.
Catherine sat iu her Heat as in a
throne, with a white face and gleaming eyes, and poured forth her accusations.
"I am gjad of it," slie said, "for
my part.' for now you will be queen's
evidence, which it is fit nod right
your father's daughter should be. Do
not stand there as if I had put ynu on
your trial. What is-f*' to me if you
have any heart or not? I want information from you. Sit down thoro and
husband your strength. How long
has this been going on I"
Hester looked at her witli great,
liquid eyes, dewy in their youthfulness
and life, though worn with fatigue and
pain. She asked in a low, wondering
voice, "Did you hear all wo said I"
"I heard—all, or almost all. Oh,
you look at me, so to accuse me, a listener that has heard no good of herself! I nm not sorry 1 did it. It was
without intention, but it was woll. I
can answer for myself. Do you answer for yourself. How long has it
been going ou ?''
Hester stood still, clasping and unclasping her hands. She had nobody
to appeal to, to stand by her: this was
h kind of effort to got strength from
herself. And her spiiit began to come
back. The shock bad been terrible,
but sho had not been killed. "What
can I say to you beyond what I hnve
said," she cried, "if you heard what
we said ? There was no more. His
lifo hai beeu intolerable"'to hiiH.forn;
long time; the monotony, the bondage
of it, has heen more than he could
bear. He has wanted change and
freedom—-"
Hester thought she was making excuses fur Edward. Sho said nil this
quickly, moaning to show that these
for Ins flight.
whelming. Sho could not answer, nor
show that sho had heard even, although
sho did hear in the extraordinary tension of her faculties. But Hoster con
tiuued to kneel beside hor. Youth is
more simple than age, oven when it is
most self-willed. The girl could not
look on and refuse to bo touched, and
she herself wanted fellowship, human
help or ovon human opposition, something different from tho loneliness in
which she was left. She touched Cath
erine's arm with her hand softly two
or three times, then after awhile, in
utter downfall and weakness, drooped
her forehead upon it, clasping it with
both her hands, and Bobbed there aa
upon her mother's breast. The room
was perfectly stilj, stretching round
them, largo and dim: in this one corner tho little steadfast light upon tho
group, the mother (yuu would havo
said) hiding hor face from ihe light,
hiding it from both earth nnd Heaven,
the daughter with that clinging whicli
is nhe best support, giving to their
mutual misery the pathetic, broken
utterance of tears.
Cathuriue was the first to rouse herself. The spasm;'was liko death, but
it came to an end,/ Sho tried to rise,
with a little wondering impatience at
the obstacle. It was with the strangest sensation that she turned hor eyes
upon Ihe hidden head lying bo near
her own, and felt with au extraordinary thrill the arms clasped round her
arm, as if they would nevor detach
themselves. What new thing was
this? Hester had Lost all her spirit
nud power, She had got within tho
sphere of a stronger than she. She
waa desolate, aud she clung to tho
only aim that could sustain her.
Catherine's lirst impulse was to snatch
her arm away. What was this creature to her—this girl who one way or
other had lo do with everything that
had happened to her, and was tho
causo of the last blow? She could
havo Hung her away from her as Edward had done. But the second
glance inured her more and more
strangely. Tlio helplessness had nu
appeal in it which would not be resisted. It even did her the good office
of withdrawing her thoughts for a
moment from the emergency which
claimed them all. She half rose, then
fell back again and was silent, not
knowing what to do. What appeal
could be more strong than thut of
those arms so tightly holding her
own? She tried to speak harshly, but
could not. Theu an impulse sho could
not resist led her tu lay her other hand
upon the drooping head.
"Hester," she Baid, gravely, "I un-
deratand that you are very unhappy.
So am I. I thank you for being sorry
for me. I will try in the future to be
sorry for you. But just now, understand, ther* is a great deal to do.
Wo must stand between—bim," her
voice faltered for a moment, then
went on, clear as before, "between
htm nnd punishment. If ho can be
saved he must be saved; if not, we
must savo what wo can. You have
overcome me, I cannot put you from
me. Free me now, for I have a groat
deal to do."
Sho had felt, by tho closer straining of tho clasping arms, that Hester
heard every word. Now thu girl
raised her face, pale, with a look of
I error.
"What can you do? Are you able
to do it?" ahe said.
Able!'1 said Catherine, raising ber-

them. She was brought ion sudden
pause. G-»th«ulM«, »hu had been gaz-
tun iit her when she beyiui, with uarsii,
mtont ■-■irnestnuia, suddenly throw Up
hor hands with a low cry of anguish.
Hestor, on lior side, had no undur-
Maiidlrit! of this. She did not know
thnt tliis wns the one delusion of Catherine's soul. Miss Vornoti had bcliov-
e.l in no one else. She hud laughed
ttnd seen through every pretense-
cept Edward. Edward hnd been the
solo faith of her later life. He hud
loved her, bIio believed, nud she hnd
been able to give him a life worthy of
him. Heaven and earth! She hnd
heard him raving, as she said to her
self, outside. Tho boy had gone wrung,
us, alas! no many havo gohe; out of
a wicked, foolish love, out of n desire
lo bo rich, perhaps. But this was different. A momentary temptation,
even a quick recurring error, tliat can
bo understood. Hut that his life
should hnve beeu intolerable, a monotony, a bondage, that change had
been what ho lunged for—change from
her house, her presence, her confidence! She gave vent to a cry like lhat
of h wild animal, full of horror and
misery and pain. The girl did not
mean to hurt Iter. There wns sincerity
in every tone of her voice. Shu
thought she was making his sins venial
nnd defending him. Oh, it wss true,
true!
Through Catherine's mind at thnt
moment there rati the whole story of
her later days—how she had used herself to the pretenses of nll about her,
how every ono around hnd tnlcen from
her and snarled at her, eaten of her
bread and drunk of her cup, and hated
her—c~cept Edward. He alone hnd
beun her prop, her religion of the affections. The others had sneered at
her weakness for liim, and she had
held hev head high. She had prided
herself ou c*:.peeling no gratitude, ou
being prepared with a laugh to receive
evil fur good—except from him. Even
now that she ihould be forced to acknowledge him ungrateful, that evon
would have boon nothing, tlmt would
have done her uu hurt. Uut to hear
that his [inst life had been a burdoti. a
bondage, a monotony, that freedom
was what he lunged for—freedom from
her! Thu whole fabric of her life crushed together uud rocked to its foundations. She cried out to Henveu and
earth that she could not bear ii—shu
could not henr it! Other'iniBoHosmight
be possible, but tliis shu could not
endure.
Hoster stood motionless, arreted iu
wlmt she hnd to say, Sho did not uu-
durstnud iho sudden etTeci of hor
words; they seethed lo her very common words, nothing particular in them:
certainly nil harm. Sho herself hnd
experienced the monotony of life, the
narrowness nnd bondage. Uut as alio
stood, silenced, gazing, there camo
over her by degrees n faint comprohon-
siou; and nlong with Ihis a sudden
consciousness how strange it was thuy
should he both heart-broken ou onu
subject ami yot stand aloof from each
other like enemies, It was not possible to mistake thnt cry—that sudden
gesture, tho hiding of Catherine's fnce.
Whatever was the causo of it, it was
anguish. Aud was thero not cause
enough I For a moment or two Hester's prido kept her back—sho hnd already beeu repulsed. Eut hur humt
was rent by trouble of her own. She
made a step or two forward, and thou
dropped upon her knees and touched
Catherine's arm joftly, wiili a deprecating, half-caressing touch.
"Oh, Catherine Vernon!'1 she erloil,
"wa sre both in great trouble. Wo
have not been fond of each other; hut
I ant sorry, sorry for you—sorry to
the bottom of my heart."
Cathorine made no reply. The shock
tree too great, too terrible and ovor-
m able "for everything that has to be
done.   Child, get up and holp  ti:
Don't cry there imd break my hear!
Heater stumbled to her feet in a
uiotuuut. Khe could scarcely stand,
hut her heart sprung up liko a giant.
"I will do--whatever you tell me,"
shu snid.
Catherine rose.too. She put away
hor emotion from her, as a workman
clears away all encumbering surroundings. Shu made the girl sit down, and
went out of tliu room and brought her
sumo wine.
"Perhaps," she said, "we may help
ench other; at all evctils we have a
common interest, and we havo tm
time to give to lamentations to-night.
The lirst thing is—but your mother
will be unhappy about vou. Whnt
shall I du? Shall I send hur wurd
Lhat you aru here nnd staying with me
all nii>h:/ Yuur mother is a happier
woman than you or I. She will accept ihu reason thnt is given her without questioning. Probably alio will
be pleased. Ee calm and rest yourself.    1 will do aU that is needful.''
She went to the writing-table and
began to write, while Hester, shattered and broken, looked on, Catherine showed uo signs of disablement.
Tlie butler came in in his stealthy way
while she was writing, and asked if he
must "shut up." She said—"No,"
going on with her writing. "You will
BO, or send sumo one, at once to the
Vernonry with this note. And afterward you can go to bed, I wish no
one to sit up. I u^pect news, for
which I must wait myself. Let all go
to bed as usual. No, stop, Oo to
lhe White House, also, and toll Mr.
Harry— What do yuu think, Hester?
Is it worth whilo lo call Harry""
She turned round with tho clear
eyes and self-controllod aspect of use
and wont. Even Marshall, who had
the skill uf a well-trained domestic in
spying nut internal commotion, was
puzzled. Sho seemed to bu asking a
question un a matter of business in
which Ihu feelings were no ways involved. Hester was not equal to iho
call upon her, but she made a great
effort to respond.
"Ho is very—anxious."
Catherine made a movement with
hor footstool whicli partly drowned
thu last word.
"Yoo can wait a little, Marshall.
[ will writo u note to Mr. Harry too."
Tho two lutters were written at full
speed, and givon with a hand ns steady
as usual into the man's keeping. "Let
thom bo taken at once, Catherine
said. Then shu began to walk up and
duwn the room, bilking in hur usual
tones." Don't mind me pacing about
—it is a habit I imve. I can talk be.-d.
so, It is my way of taking e-orcise
now." She went on nmil Marshall
was out of hearing, then turned upon
Hoster wiih a changed tone "Ho
meant to take you away by ilie midnight train," she said. "Tlmt was so?
Ho cannot leave Redborough till then.
I tun going to mout him thoro, and
endeavor tu persuade him to return.
Quiet, child! This is nut the moment
fur feeling. I—feel nothing," sho
said, putting her hand, as nature bids,
with a hard pressure upon her heart.
"We have got to do now, Are you
strung enough to come with me, or
must I go alone?"
Hestor rose up too, quickly, wiih a
start of new energy. "I oan do any
iliing that you will let mo do" she said,
"Come, then." Eut after a moment
Catherino put her hands on the girl's
shoulders and drow her into thu light.
"You are very young," she said, "not
twenty yet, aro you? Poor little thing!
I was full grown before I was brought
tu this. But ahow what metal is in
ynu new."
