A iliisjnitcli  {rom  London
dated tlio Htb inst., snys:
A Tinws editorial bowails tliu farming prospoct. lt snys a crisis in field
work exists. It is writer overyivhoro.
flood sowing land is witntod. It is
siirinisod tlint much autumn sowing is
rotten. All Europe is in it similar condition.
Now, ovory person knows tlint
bad crop prospects in Europe must
intensify the desire vory largely existing tliero to emigrate. It lias become pretty well known that, as n
general rule, crops are much more
certnin in America, and tlmt a competence ia very mncli moro easily
fiocurod. Every year we have a partial failure of crops in some places,
resulting from local causes, but it
could scarcely happen that American
producers would not have a considerable surplus of gram for export
aftor supplying all demands for home
consumption. The fame of the for-
tilo fields of the Canadian Northwest lias long ago reached tho other
aide of the Atlantic, and there are
thousands of Europeans anxious to
share in tlie profits which are ao
liborally criTciml in that vast region.
It may bo taken as a fact, therefore,
that there will be a large emigration
thia year from Europe to America.
' A lato telegram irom New York, in
fact, assures us of this, and mentions
tt reason, other than bad harvest
prospects.   It says:
Inquiry at Castle Garden and tho
steamship companies elicits the statement that tho rtcont reduction in emigrant fares of nine dollars from English
ports stimulates groat activity nt immigration centres. Supt. Jackson believes tho emigration this year will bo
fully equal to that of last year, nnd
promises nre favorable for n considerable incronia in California oniigmts,
particularly Scotch nnd English, on
account of distress in some of the districts. Scotland agents have gone to
California to look for fav ruble openings in land and business industries,
with a view of taking bodies of Scotch
and English laborers there. Stoerago
rates on all Liverpool and Glasgow
lines nro now 821 to New York.
Agents nf steamships and emigration
boards iu English interior towns arc
selling tickets through t. tho West at
a discount ou regular rates. Emigrant
faros from Liverpool to Illinois, or
even further West, nre a littlo more
than tho last-named stoerago rato to
this city, and less than one-half the
emigrant rate hence to tho Pacifio
coast. Jackson is much interested in
the growth of California, nud says
thousands of worthy, industrious omi*
grants aro arriving hero with no fixed
destination. They would go to California ou ncoount of its olimnte alono,
if their menus permitted. A decline
in German emigration is expected this
yoar, becatiso of hotter times there.
Private lottorst to German houses here
Eiibstantinto this view.
Not long ngo we drew attention
to the fact that Mr. Onderdonk hnd
offered $325,000 towards assisting
iniiiiigriitioii to this province, and
thnt tho fioveriiniciit at Ottawa and
the Into provincial Government neglected to avail themselves of that
offer. We also pointed out tho importance of taking some steps to secure tlio co-operation of tho Dominion Govornment, und Air. Ondordonk,
if iKissible, in a woll devised scliemo
for encouraging and assisting omi-
grants desirous of coming to the
provinco. The despatches quoted
above seem to indicate that our opportunity is iiiinr at hand. Lot it
not be suffered to pass unimproved.
Lot our new Government give proof
of its desire to aid, by every possible
means, the development of the provinco whose affairs have boon committed to. its keeping. Tlio time for
prompt notion has already come, and
if prompt and energetic measures
are adopted there in no reason to
doubt that British Columbia will
receive a fair share of tho immigration of this season.

gcicniiftc JfoeCclhrnj).
Sir George B. Airy thinks it prolia-
blt) thut tho tides can lmvo nu bono-
tiolal effect upon tho clininta of London, except tlmt tin* agitation produced
may destroy injurious stagnation of
thu air. The simitary action must be
•light, ns about ull tho mutter carried
out by the ebbing tide in returned at
tho next How.
Dr, (lit has learned that tbe rattlesnake's tail makes sixty vibrations a
second.
Mons. Fayol has found tbat the
duration of cak timber used in collieries is increased and sometimes doubled
by treatment with tar. Tho same substance has, however, little influence
upon the durability of pine.
The distinctness with whicli small
stars appear in photographs of the
groat comot of last yoar leads Mr.
Gill, astronomer of M\q Cape of Good
Hope observatory, tPauggcst the^os-
sibility of making Sm^liiaps by direct
photography of. tliij*ni}tyveiis.
Mons. Brown-Soquard recently discovered that carbonic acid has a remarkable anaesthetic action when
blown into the upper opening of. tbe
larynx, insensibility being produced
not only in that- organ but iu tho on-
tire body. It is found that tho effect
is not duo lo the passage of carbonic
acid into the blood, as might be supposed, but to an influence Ported on
tbo nerve centres by irritation of thu
sensitive nerves of the larynx.
Good reason exists for believing that
bay-fever is caused by pollen, according to Mr, C. B. Plowrigbt, an English microscopist, who says the pollen
rapidly begins to throw out pollen-
tubes whon brought into contact with
tbo warm and moist mucous membrane
of tbe bronchial tract. Similarly, ho
thinks that tho spores of some fungus
growing on grasses must enter tho
broiiebtal tubes of Hheep and germinate
therein to produce tho •'sheop cough1,
known to English shsep-growers.
The readiness with which certain
solids conduct sound fo a familiar fact
of physics which Mons, Gobin mentions as having long had a curious application on tho Rhone. Considorablo
quantities of 'gravel aro carried down
tho rivor by tho current, and, by placing one end of a cane iu tho wator aud
applying tho othor to tho ear, the clash
of the moving pobbles as they strike
together is distinctly heard by persons
in boats on tbe surface. Tho Bound is
a crackling like that produced in frying.
A Vienna chemist haa mado a new
glass, which seems to ho au interesting
production. Its composition is not
given, but it is said to contain neither
silex, potash, soda, lime, nor borax.
It is perfectly clear aud transparent,
and can bo cut aud polished, whilo it
is reported to bo moro brilliant in appearance than tho common crystal. It
is completely insulijble in water, and
is not affected by iiuorie acid, but hydrochloric aud nitric acids corrode it.
When fused it adheres to iron, bronze
nnd zinc, and would'probably form a
valuable protective coating for those-
metals.
Lockyer's supposition that part or
all of the so-called chemical elements
are really compound bodies ia based
upon spectroscopic observations of tbe
sun and stars. It appears that tho
supposed hottest stars—Sirius, for instance-—givo spectra showing only
very thick hydrogen lines and a very
fow thin metallic lines characteristic of
elements oi low atomic weight; while
the cooler still's, liko our sun, indicate
by their spectra a much larger number
of metallic elements, but none of a
non-metallic character; and the coolest
stars afford evidence of compounds of
metallic with non-metallic elements.
These observations are vory simply explained by considering that, as tho
temperature increases, the compounds
aro first broken up into tho constituents which we havo been accustomed to regard as their elements, and
that these substances then undergo
decomposition into lighter elements.
Iu tho whito sand of the* Ergont
Mountains at Saropta, Asiatic Russia,
aro found some curious stones. They
lmvo round, cylindrical and target-
shaped forms, and range iu size from
lumps smaller than walnuts to masses
of more than fourteen inches in length
and from two to seven inches in thickness. Each of the cylindrical stones—
which are often forked and root-like
in appearance--is found to contain n
brown kernel with a white spot in tbo
centre. Thoso singular formations
have perplexed' many persons, including Alexander von Humboldt, who,
whilo declaring the stones tu be of recent dato, could not explain thoir origin, Alex. Becker now believes that
ho cau with certainty assort that they
havo boon produced around tho roots
of plants containing milky juice. Several such plants grow abundantly iu
tho whito sand, . Tho long roots are
lacerated by insects, and the milky
fluid flows continually from tbo
wounds, sticking tho chalky sand firmly around tho roots. In time" tho
roots die and disappear, leaving in
thoir places whito—often hollow --kernels, togothor with tho brown color of
tho root cortox. Tho round and target-
shaped stonea—only few of which lmvo
a brown kernel—may have formed
whore' tho milky fluid run nway into
tho Baud.

From despatches published elsewhere it wilt be seen that tho whole
of the Phoenix Park assassins have
been fully identified, and that one
of them has made a full confession.
Although long delayed, justice has
overtaken tho wretches, and wo mny
now look for swift vengeance on
these cowardly ussassins.
We couimond to our readers the
announcement made by Hon. Mr.
Smithe in the House last MomkV.
There is not a measure indicated by
the new Government which wilt not
meet with a hearty response throughout the wholo province. If it lie
true tlint the late Government went
out of office witli a deficit of $100,-
000, every one must experience a
Reuse of relief tlmt their career of
useless expenditure tins terminated.
The Colonist draws attention to
the great irregularity winch has
characterized the ndministriitiun of
the Educational department iu this
province during the past four years.
In many districts fairly entitled to
schools, according to the statute, the
appeals of the settlers for school organization have beon refused, and
many of tho departmental regulations have been systematically neglected. Reference is also made to
tha establishment of a High School
in this city, which was promised by
the Elliott Government in 1878.
We are of opinion that the claims of
New Westminster will be recognized
hy the now Government if proper
application be made. It is not
creditable to the Government that
people in this city have been forced
to supply out of thoir own private
purses the means of providing n
High School education. There certainly should be at least one such
institution oh the mainland, and it
should be in this city.
And Still Another.
At the last council meeting another improvement scheme was presented for consideration. It is a
modification of the two schemes previously submitted, and has some
features which neither of them possessed. The contents will be found
in another column, and it will be
seen that the committee have raised
the appropriation for City Hall
buildings from $2,000 to $5,000.
This sum seems to us quite too small,
but if a suitable hall can be erected
and finished for that amount, we
shall be content. We believe, however, that the Council should adopt
suoh a plan as will meet the requirements of the city for 20 years to
come. At present we have no hall
sufficiently large for municipal or
other public meetings, which is not
very creditable to the Royal City.
The City Hall should have such a
room, and it should be properly seated. Another departure in the new
scheme is a steam fire engine, for
which $2,500 is asked. Now, every
citizen must know that our appliances for fire protection are very imperfect, and that the best directed
efforts of the brigade could not be
expected to contend successfully
against a large'conflagration. There
are no brick or stone blocks whero
the flames could bo stopped, and if a
fire onco got fairly going it is doubtful if nny portion of the business
part could be saved. But while increased protection is urgently needed, it is worth while to consider
whether a steam fire engine would
not be less effective, and more costly
in the end, than a system of water
works. The original cost of the
water works would doubtless be
greater in the first instance, but
thore the expenditure would practically cease. A steam fire engine
would require a practical engineer,
and that implies an annual expenditure tf several hundred dollars. As
a whole, tho new scheme is much
better than either of the others, but
we think it also requires modification. We shall return to the subject
tt soma future time.
It is stated, as a sign of progress of
tomperance principles among ilia middle chutes of England, Hint as many

Knglish towns are total abstainers.

PROVINCIAL LEGISLATURE.
FIRST SESStOti OF THE FOURTH PAHUAMEtlT.
The House met on Monday. After
preliminary business the I'ranier made n
brief statement of the Government's policy. He said they would take steps at
once to secure the construction of the
Island raihyay. A memorandum on that
subject had already been forwarded to
Ottawa. They also proposed dealing
with tlio question of railway hinds. Negotiations had, he said, been abruptly
broken off by the late Government nnd
their agent, aud nothing had been done
towards bringing tliese lands into the
market. Dry-dock matters had received
a careful consideration, and he hoped to
he able shortly to announce that the dock
would he completed speedily without
costing the province any more money,
and .that the sums already advanced
would he returned. Everything possible
would he done to mitigate the Chinese
evil. An immigration policy would he
inaugurated, in whieh Mr. Onderdonk
would be asked to assist; The judiciary
question wns under consideration, and
they proposed to produce a scheme whioh
would establish permanent law courts on
tlie mainland. A more equitable payment of jurors and witnesses would also
be brought about, as much hardship had
been entailed ou persons who wore forced
to travel long.distanced to attend court.
Public works would bo carried on to a
much larger extent thau had been dono
by tlie former Government, and roads
would he repaired so as to permit fanners to take advantage of tint markets
created by railway work. He was sorry
to s»y that the finances of the province
woro at present in a wretched condition.
He believed thero was an overdraft of
■v'iO.OOO or .s/0,000 at the Vauk. Some
largo liabilities had already been paid by
his Government, and others. were constantly fulling due. Instead of a surplus,
there was fotiud a deficit of §100,COO.
Funds necessary for needed public works
would have to lie raised in some way.
His Government, would endeavor to
mako Esquimalt tho headquarters of the
British navy on the North Pacific. He
closed' by siiyjng that the new Government had, not had time completely to
formulate a policy, hut othor measures
looking tu the development of the country would be brought in from time lo
timo.
Mr. Heaven denied that there was a
defieit, bat Hon. Mr. Smitho reiterated
•liia statement and was supported by Hon.
Mr. Kobson, who said the financial ;tf-
fairs were iu a desperate condition.
AnotiiopImprovcDientScuciuo.
, Tlio committee appointed by tho
City Council last week, to roviso and
consolidate tbo two schemes already
submitted for city improvements,
handed in (heir report on Monday
night. They recommended tliat tho
sum of £:.10,000 bu borrowed, payable
in instalments of Sh-oQO per annum,
extending over 20 years, bearing interest not exceeding 0 por cent. Tlio
money they propose to expend as follows: Filling in Front st. full width
from end of present filling to connect
with roadway on east side, and widening, grading and improving as far as
possible, for #3,000; filling iu full
width on west side from bulkhead tn Eweivs cannery, thonoe continuing as a plank road, widening aud
repairing to Duuglus st., £3,000; from
Douglas nt. to Ellico st., a plunk road
full width, 85,000; Columbia St., from
Kyttoii Square to Lewis' stable, to he
lillod, graded and graveled, i?5,000; to
raise, grade and gravel Dallas fit. to
Richard st., and to connect Ellicu with
Columbia st., !?2,000; to open a street
or streets through St, Patrick's ward
to connect Columbia st. with the north
sido uf tho townsite,'§1,000; to build
a city hall, with tbo necessary offices,
market place, -.to., §5,000; bonus to a
grist mill, !?2;000; bonus to a tub,
bucket and barrol factory, 61,500; to
provide a steam fire engine, §2,500.
The coinmittco considered that thu
bonus to a woollen mill should not bo
proposed until some scbomo for its
erection was presented. With regard
to improvement of parks, thoy considered it would bo bottor to vote from
year to year a certain sum fur such im
provemonts, nnd tbey recommend tha:
§1500 bo st) appropriated this yoar. It
was considered that the improvements
on Front st. would yroatly increase tho
city revenues from water lots, as woll
as tho revenue from adjacent lots in
coiuequonce of increased assessment.
Tlioy wero of opinion that tbo rovonuos
from city hall and market would moro
than pay interost ou tho money expended. A steam firo engine thoy
deemed a necessity, and suggested that
the prosont engine might bo placed
in tho upper part ef tho city for use in
case of fire.
Returned by Acclamation.
Hon. John Robson, llui newly appointed Provincial Secretary and Minister uf Finance, was ro-oleeted for
New Wciitminater on Saturday by acclamation. Mr. Robson has taken a
prominent part iu tho politics of this
Provinco for tho past twenty yoars.
At lirst he was returned for Now 'Westminister, and from 1872 and 1875 represented Nanaimo Dislrict in the
Provincial Legislature J'or several
yenrs ho held tho responsible position
of paymaster to tho Canadian Pacific
Railway Survey Department. Ou the
completion of tho surveys the offico
was abolished. At tho hist general
election Mr. Robson ran forNowWcst-
minstor ugainst six competitors and
was returned by a majority of two to
one. On ,tho defeat of the Beaven
Ministry last niuntli, tho Hon. \Y.
Smitho was called upon to form a Government mul selected Mr. Robson for
tho responsible position of Provincial
Soorotary and Minister of Finance.
Mr. llobaou accepted the portfolio and
went back for ro-oloction. Tlio fact
of his re-election by acclamation is a
proof uf tho esteem of his constituents
aud their eudorsatiou of bis appointment as a Cabinot Miuistor. Mr. Rob-
aon has manfully and oloquonlly battled for tbo rights of tlio province in
many a stormy dobato, and lie is now
afforded au opportunity to display
those admrnittrative abilities which
it ta well-knuwu lio possesses. —Nanaimo. Free Press,

Oouncil mot un Monday night
Present—Mis Worship tlie Mayor, and
Conns. Dickinson, Brown, Curtis, Ferris, and Johnston.
After disposing of u fow account-i,
Coun. Ferris reported that tlie Board
of Works had seen Mr. J. A. Calbick
aud hu had, agreed to build Columbia
st. to Richard st. according to a modified plan for $2.S47, which was §025
less than his (under on tbe original
plan. Thu cummittoe considered the
oiler reasonable and recommended
that it bo accepted. Coun. Curtis said
ho had opposed iho scheme throughout, aud bu. would still oppose it.
Couu. Juhnstun thought tho whole
thing had been bungled. If tbo Council had taken the course he suggested
at last meeting they would have saved
over 8300. On motion of Coun. Brown
tho contract was awarded tu Mr. Calbick.
Tlio Mayor presented a report from
tho committee appointed to consider
the improvement scheme. A eopy'of
tho report will bo found in another
column. Coun. Dickinson moved that
the report bo adopted. He considered
it a good scheme and hoped it would
he carried. Colin, Curtis said the
only fault ho had to iind with the
scheme Was tlie extension of Front :.t.
to Ellico st., for which !-;V*,00() wus
asked. Coun. Ferris said that on that
extension there wero a largo number
of water lots whieh would bring the
corporation §000 a year in rents. The
Mayor said be was iu favor of tho
schomc. Ho thought it proposed io
distribute the loan over tlv city as
fairly as a proper consideration for
ijianufacturing and business interests
would permit. After somo further
discussion, the scheme was adopted
aud a by-law for a loan of $30,000
will bo brought in at next mooting,
Coun. Brown presented the salaries
by-law for its second reading. It
places the salary of the clerk, assessor
and collector at §100 per month, and
(ho Constable at §80. This clause gave
rise to'a long discussion. Coun. Ferris contended tliat there should bu two
constables, ono for'day and another
for night duty. It was stated that
last year Comdable Wiggins received
about $('00 in Hues besides S0U0 as
salary, and several of thp councillors
considered that if his salary remain at.
£80 por month lie should hartd over all
fees to tlie corporation. This point
was laid over till next mootiug
Conn, Brown alao presented by-laws
for assessment, taxes, and revenue.
In connection therewith the Mayor
mentioned that a certain person who
held a retail liquor licence mi Culum-
bia fit. was. about to open a bar on
Front iit. on thu snmo license. This
was pronounced contrary to law,
Tenders for improvements ou "Clinton st. and Luc alley wero then opened
as follows: Lee alloy— U. Campbell,.
§oo; Wm, Holmes, §74; Smith & Forrest, .§110; A. Bums, §120; Malcolm
McLood. §100. Clinton st.- -M, Gray,
$400; Wm. Holmes, §405; R, Campbell, §475; A. Burns, §1,125; Geo.
Good and M. McLeod tendered at so
much per chain.
Coun. Curtis moved that Gray's
tender fur Clinton st. lie accepted.
Couu. Brown moved in amendment
tbat the matter be laid over till .(ho
1st of July. He said the Council had
just given out a contract for nearly
§3,000, and there would bo no money
left in tho treasury and wo must wait
until taxefi were collected. Coun.
Curtis said ho was not surprised at tbo
course taken by Mr. Brown, because
it had seemed to him all along to bo
his (Mr. Brown's) settled purpose to
sink thu whole city revenue in tho
swamp, and to dony tho claims of St.
Patrick's ward. But ho could not aeo
how tho Council could act consistently
without accepting this tender. They
had agreed that tonders should be
asked for tho work, and in ho doing
bad tacitly committed themselves to
tho scheme. Tho tonders had beon
mado out and sent in in good faith,
and could not bo ignored without a
breach of faith. Ho protested against
tho way iu which the claims of his
ward bad been treated. Coun. Ferris
said Couu. Curtis had no one to blame
but himsolf if his scheme failed. Ho
had persistently opposed all expenditure in the lower part of tho city, and-
ho (Mr. Ferris) thought it was time to
put a chock to this sectional feeling,
lie would bo glad to seo all the streets
opened up and improved, but ho would
opposo this in order to teach Coun.
Curtis a lesson. The Mayor said ho
was sorry that any councillor should
permit his action to bo influenced by
such unworthy motives as porsonal
spite, and ho "hoped such a thing
would not be mentioned again. Coun.
Johnston said ho liad for a long timo
been a member of this council, but lu.
mufit express great surprise at tho ro-
marks of Couu. Ferris. Clinton street,
evory ono admitted, was greatly in
need of improvement, the amount
asked was reasonable, aud bo hoped
the sectional feeling displayed by somo
members, of tho council would not be
tolerated. If thoy burked this schomc,
iho loan scheme would stand a poor
show in St. Patrick's ward. Coun.
Dickinson disapproved of the insinu-
afion thrown out by Coun. Juhnstun,
that thoy should pass this appropriation in order to buy votes for the loan
scbomo. Ho also disapproved of tho
remarks made by Coun. Ferris. Tho
only ground upon which he would op-
poiu) tliis work was tho want of funds.
It would take all our available revenue
till tlio 1st of July to meet current ex*
pensoH and pay for tbo Columbia st.
oxtensioii. It was utterly useless,
therefore, to vote nway moro money
when wc hadn't uny to vote. He
would liko to see tlio work dono, if (lie
money could be got lo pay for it.
Coun. Curlh mud ho was glad lhat
Coun. Ferris had shown his linnd'lu
this matter. Whon lie (Mr. Curtis)
had opposed the $3,000 appropriation
for Columbia st,, Coun, Ferris had
mado up as an offset to oppose Clinton
st. Ho wns surprised that an old citizen and councillor should report tu
such petty trloks. Ho demanded justice for St. Patrick's ward, and would
contend for his rights in spite of all
the rings tbey could form. On motion of Coun. Brown, tho matter was
laid over indefinitely, Conns. Curtis
and Johnston voting nay.   .

Liquor MceHSOB*
ISniTOK CoiDMBUH.— So great aro
the evils resulting from grgcers1 liquor
licenses that earnest efforts are .being
put forth in many places to abolish
them altogether. Fur instance, in
Toronto, Ont., whore such licenses
have boen granted, a very humorously
aigued petition was recently presented
to tho Mayor and Council by an influential deputation. Tliat petition stated— "That tho sale of liquor in stores
whore other commodities arc sold is
attended with serious evils, resulting
in intemperance in the homes of the
people, and greatly aggravating the
.idoiul disorders arising from drinking
habits." Aud tho petitioners asked
the Council to tako advantage of tho
law enabling (hem !o "pass a by-law
to prevent tho salo of liquor in any
shop where groceries or other goods
are sold." Now would it not be well
fo:' in to profit by the experience of
others 'I Prevention is better and
easier than cure. It id no easy matter
to "euro" such ovils when vested rights
exist, even whon tho evils aro almost
universally admitted.

Presbyterian Union.
At a meeting of the Executive Sub-
Comniitlco of tho Homo Mission Committee uf the Presbyterian Church iu
Canada, hold at Toronto, January
10th, a letter in reply from the Rov.
Dr. Gray, Convener of the 'Colonial
Committee, was laid on tho table and
road. It was to tho effect that tho
Colonial Committeo wore desirous tbat
for the present tho work in British Columbia should bo carried on as heretofore, aud that ministers sent out either
from Scotland or from Canada be asked
to connect themselves with the existing Presbytery thore, aud 'that iu the
event of the Nanaimo congregation
getting a minister from Canada fho
Colonial Committee's grant to that
field of ,-£i00 sterling will be available,
provided tho minister connect himself
with tho Presbytery in British Columbia, in connection with the Church of
Scotland.
After lengthened consideration the
following resolution woro unanimously
adopted:
1. That while sympathizing witli tho
Colonial Committoo uf tho Church of
Scotland in tho difficulties which lio in
tho way of an immediate transfer to
the Presbyterian Church in Canada of
tho work in British Columbia, this
committee regret the delay iu effecting
such a transfer, as they are of opinion
that tho work uf tho church and the
care of tho Presbyterian population in
that province can be best overtaken
by having all the congregations thevo
counocted with tbo Church in Canada.
2. Tbat the ability of tho church of
Canada io sccuro suitable and efficient
laborers for British Columbia, such as
the necessities of tbo field demand,
would bo greatly lessened were it in a
condition of acceptance their severing
thoir Presbyterian connection with tho
church in Canada and uniting with tho
prcsbytory in British Columbia in connection with the church of Scotland.
3. That inasmuch as tbe First (or
Pandora street) church, Victoria, never
hcrctoforo iu connection with any
presbytery, is now asking to bo received into the Presbyterian church in
Canada and to have a minister sent
from this church, this committee would
recommend, in order tit prevent tho
unseemliness of iv rival presbytery in
British Columbia, that, snid congregation and ils minister (should one bo
sont from Canada) bo for tho present
placed under tho caro of one of tho
presbyteries of tho Presbyterian church
in Canada; and further that tho same
courso be adopted in regard to St Andrew's church, Now Westminster, and
its minister.
' 4. That while rceognh'in.g the liuer-
alily or tho colonial eommittoo's grant
to Nanaimo, this conimitloo nre of
opinion that lhe probability uf securing a minister for that field from the
Canadian church is greatly lessened
because uf tliu condition un which (ho
grant fo made, viz., that the minister
connect himself with (he presbytory
m British Columbia in connection
with tbo church uf Scotland.
b. That copies of these resolutions
bo sent to the colonial conimitloo uf
the church of Scotland and to tho
presbytery in British Columbia,

which a tag accompanies each one of our
Cold Cases, whieh plainly indicates not
only the grpsB weight of tho case, but
also the Nc: weight of the gold.
In explanation of the. above wc desire
to say that the old plan of charging for
the gross weight of the case, as if it were
all gold, worked well enough as long as
the manufacturers were content with the
amount of brass and steel actually required in its construction; but when the
basinefiB was degraded into a contest as
to who should get the most base metal
into tbe least quantity of gold and call it
a Gold case, then the time caino when,
iii the interest ef dealers iu American
Watches, it became necessary to adopt
plan of selling, showing the buyer exactly how much (loi.n each case contained.
To avoir] impbsitiuu, purchasers of Waltham Watches will observe that every
genuine watch, whether gold or silver,

"A. M. Watch Co., Waltham, Mass.,
sterling silver," aud are accompanied hy
guarantee certificates, signed II, 13, Rob-
bins,- treasurer. The name "Waltham"
is plainly engraved upon oil movements,;
irrespective of either distinguishing
marks. This caution is rendered necessary by reason of the fact that our eases
are frequently separated from our movements, and put upon worthless movements of other makers and vice versa,
tints atl'eeting injuriously the performance of the watches, and vitiating our
guarantee, which is intended to cover
only our complete watches wholly made
hy us. It is necessary also, because it is
so notorious as to be a public scandal
tliat there is groat fraud in the metal
quality of both gold and silver cases as
now; generally sold. We have demonstrated by frequent assays that many
gold and silver eases offered iu the market are debased from 10 to* 20 per cent.

This is a fraud Upon the purchaser, aud
accounts for the low price at whieh such

Pofrunnv.—Why they are popular.
Tho reason that "National Tills are so
universally popular is because they are
certain in their action, mild and painless
in their operation, and never leavo tho
bowels constipated. They are sugar-

"Then it is very discouraging.'1
"Of courso it is; but still, though

if you nre not pleased with tho result
of your visit."
"Come up to-morrow and hear about
ib," said Muriel, looking up as though
site were just realizing that this quiet
friend, who was always ready to listen,
. and advise, nnd sympathize with hor,
might need to receive something, some
little kindness, from her.
"With pleasure," Baid he. "Indeed,
I have not been at the Hall for moro
than a week."
"Is it so long? Papa must havo
missed you; ■ but I have seen you hero,
so I did not find out your absence."
"How kindly she spoke!'1 thought
Ronald, as lie closed the garden gate
behind her, and watched her slight
figure moving toward Jamie's cottago
—"how kindly, how frankly! and yet
I am nothing to her that any one olso
could not be as well. I must go away
soon, or 1 shall begin to think too
much of her again; yet, as long as sho
likes to talk to mc, I cannot wish to
leave."
Arrived at the shoemaker's Muriel
sat down on a straight-backed chair
produced for her from some remote,
dark corner and plunged into her subject. She spoke of the ruinous condition of tho present dwellings, the advantages of the new, nnd her regret at
tlio feeling evoked by the change.
Jamie listened quietly, only skaking
his head over the last part of the tale.
"There's nae doot that Scotch folk
are aweir to niak' changes," said he,
when Muriel had ended.
"So I see, Jamie; nnd. now I havo
come to you for advice."
"To me!'' said the old man, shoving
bis spectacles up ou to his forehead
and gazing at her. "Ye'ro no makin'
fun o"me, Mrs. Leslie?"
"Jamie! you surely do not think I
would do such a thing V said Muriel,
seriously.
"Weel, weel, it wadna bo like ye
but losh! tor you to bespeirn' at tne
for advice—" Jamie did not end this
this sentence, but bent over his work
again, with an odd smile ou his face.
"I want to know what you would
advise rae to do to make the poople
take more kindly to the new flats. It
woul£ be quite wrong to leave the old
houses standing.   They'd havo been
!Hilled down years ngo if the tenants
lad not begged that they might remain
as they were.
"H-m—-that's nae sue easy answered," said Jamie, plying his awl for a
minuto or two in silence. "Could ye
no get ane or twa decent folk, say Mrs.
M'ltorie there, frae tho neist house,
to tak' the rooms? And likely they'd
be satisfied wi' them, nnd the neebuvs
wad hear o't."
"Just what I thought oi, Jamie; but
I did not know whom to speak to.
You think Mrs, M'Rorie would de it ?"
"Ou ay, I daursny she wad. She s n
sensible woman; ye can mak' her hear
reason whiles. And there's anither
thing—gin ye could hae a crack wi'
yane or twa o' them, and tell them a'
aboot it it, /st as ye hae dune wi1 me,
the neobors wad sune hear o't. Folks
is no sao canisteerie gin ye stroke thom
tlie richt way o' the W.'
"Exactly, Jamie. If, as you say,
somebody would talk a bit about it all
to them, and if one or two of tho right
sort would take the rooms, everything
would go straight."
"Ay?;
"Jamie, will you do it for me 1"
Onto moro the shoemaker gazed at
his vis?lor with a bewildered face; then
broke into a laugh.
"Fvo baited a trap for mysel', I'm
thinkin'," said he. "Na, na, Mrs.
Leslie, I couldna gang into a bran-new
hooBe like yon. Ye maun get some o'
tho gudowives, no' a ne'er-do-weel liko
me*
"You're nut to call yourself tlint,
Jamie, for it is not true. Now, you
know if I talk to some of the gude-
wives the others will think I should
have gone to them, and I cannot go to
the whole of thom while they are so
angry with my father; but if you were
to mako a beginning you would man-
Age far better than I—and I should bo
su grateful to you, I can't bear tu
hear the people say they would rather
leave the * dear old village thau take
the now rooms."
"Ay, ay, ye've been unco fashed
aboot it, I seo that," said Jamie, looking at her face.   "Weel, it's a terrible
thing to ask an old man like me to Hit,
and I couldna jist promise that I'll dao
it; but if you'll let me think it ower a
wee while I'll lot you hear,"
* "Thank  you, Jamie; don't hurry
yourself j I will do nothing till I hear
from you," said Muriel, shaking hands.
. "Hae yo spoken to Mr. Ronnld V
he asked.
"Yea, I waa1 there to-day."
"And what did he aay V
"Jiwt what you Mia, Jamie, nnd.
thought you would bo sure to help
mo," she replied, smiling.
"Ay-did he? He's a fine lad yon,
Mrs. Leslie—a fine lad, wi' a leal heart
(>' his ain."
"Yes indeed," said sho, and went
away, while Jamio sat thinking deeply
over his work.
Toward evening he laid nsido his
leather apron, took oil' his spectacles,
and put on his coat—a process equivalent to assuming full dress. He then
went up to tho manse and asked tu see
Ronald.
"Misa Muriel" (ho often willed her
so still) "was wi' mo tho day. Yo
heard a' she said aboot these flats?" he
began.
"Yes," said Ronald; "sho is vory
much put out aboui thom."
"H-m—d'ye think it wad bo ony
kink o' satisfaction till her if I flitted l
I wadna dae't for jist a lassie's fancy,
ye ken."
"I'm quite sure it would bo doing
her a real kindness if you cau persuade
any of tho poople not to oppose Sir
Duncan    It grieves her greatly."
"Then I'll flit! My certie, tho warld
maun ho tnpsidtoorio whon auld Jamio
dis sao mickle tu pleasure n woman?
but she's no' like tho hive-*-she's as
gudo as site's bourne,1' said Jamie,
looking at Ronald with much the same
expression in his eyes as they had
shown when he spoke to Muriel of tho
"fino lad.*'
"Shu is that," replied Ronnld; and
aftor a few more words the shoemaker
wont his way. He applied next morning, with somo importance, for rooms
in the now flats; and whether his judicious talk exercised its effect, or tho
merits ef the building were indisputa
ble, or the dislike to them died out as
such sudden, stermy prejudices are apt
to do, Muriel soon had the delight of
knuwing that no ouo left the village of
Tillybodle on account of the much-
abused improvements, and moreover
that Jamie wus taking pride in tho
condition of-his bright new rooms,
CHAPTER XXIV.
BADCIKIl's GOSSIP.
Early in the spring Ronald went to
Edinburgh, having to his groat satisfaction been attached to the staff of
the general commanding there, in order that his qualifications for work
migh ho put to tho test, with a view to
his admission to tho Stall' College.
After his quiet existence at Tillybodle
the change diverted and pleased him,
and ho found himself very soon in the
midst of such enjoyments as the town
at that season could offer. He recovered old friends and made new ones,
aud found himself pnpular. Fow of
the officers of tho Afghanistan army
hud as yet made thoir way to Edinburgh, and peoplo were therofuro very
kindly disposed toward those who did
appear, and especially toward one
whose story was almost a romance.
By-and-byo it occurred to Ronald
that us the — th was at Piershill he
might go and seo Mrs, Jenkins, once
pretty Ellen Smith. Ho went accordingly, and wns shocked and startled at
tho change that eighteen months had
made in her. The color had faded in
tho cheeks thnt once were round and
rosy, though it flickered there a moment when Ronald ontercd; hor plump
figure was gone, and in her eyos— onco
so innocent and trusting—there was a
hunted expression tbat wont to bis
heart. Mr. Jenkins was in the room
when ho arrived, but was forced to
leave on account of somo duty, and his
absence was an ovident relief. It needed but a kindly question to open tho
flood-gates of hor trouble, and in a few
minutes sho had told Ronnld that on
the following day she wns coming up
to Edinburgh to see a lawyer with a
view to obtaining a divorce. She must
leave again by the four o'clock train
for Portobollo, where hor husband believed she was to spend tho afternoon
with n friend, t
"She can't help me, though—I don't
liko lier—and I haven't a real friend in
tho world," she said, "now that father
is dead; and I'd rather kill myself
than go on with the life I'm lending."
Ronnld could uot do less after such
au interview than promise any help
that might be in his power to give;
and before he came away lie agreed to
be in waiting nt the four-o'clock train
on the following day, so ns to hear
what success bad attended her. There
was no need to question hor when ho
met her at the station; her eyes wore
red with woeping, and evon yet tbo
tears wore scarcely checked.
"Thero's no escapo for mo," she said
she, with quivering lips; "the law's
always against a woman, especially if
she's poor. I can't toll you about it
now, but I wrote down some of what
he said. There it is; take it away with
you and read it."
"I will, audi will send it back."
"Oh, mercy on us, don't do that!"
cried Ellen, her oyes wide nnd frightened. "I couldn't get n lottcr that
Jenkins wouldn't see, and he'd be mad
if ho thought I'd heard from you or
shown you that paper. Keep it for
me. And oh, Mr. Bennett, if evor I
write to you for it, or ask you to help
me, will you do it I You'ro always
kind and true. 1 could get on bettor
if I thought there was some ono would
givo me a helping hand."
"My dear girl, you mny depend
upon my doing anything I can for you,
You won't forgot iny address; write to
mo at any timo, nnd I, and my mother too, will do our best for you."
"Oh, thank you! Oh, if men woro
ull like you! I'll not trouble you if I
can manage without, I've my plans,
and perhaps I'll writo to you about
them, but it's a comfort just to know
there's some ono-- Yes, I'll get in,
please.    Good-bye,"
They were standing by tho railway-
carriage, and it wns n guard who had
cut short Ellen's parting words, smiling covertly ns ho did so, for her agitation hud been visible, and hur imploring gnzo into Ronald's faco had
boen remarked by more than ono
passer-by. He was not unconscious of
the fact; but, while hu stood so as to
screen her as much as possible from
observation, he had not the heart to
check her rapid utterance and expressive gestures, for ho saw that she could
with difficulty control horself. Her
scrap of paper bo put into his waistcoat-pocket, to be read in the house,
nnd when tlio train moved off ho wont
iii-doors for tlmt purpose, Ho did not
notice that the north train wns waiting nt a platform a little farther up tho
stntion, and that among tho passengers going by it was Captain iiadgor.
