NUMBER 29
Two important Matters.
There aro two mattera ot great
importance to this provinco which
the electors expect the present government to adjust, if possiblo. One
is the opening of the railway lands
to settlement, and the other is getting rid of the graving dock as n
provincial work. We havo been
given to understand that the railway
lands would very soon be opened
but there has as yot been no official
announcement of the fact. The great
attention which British Columbia is
now attracting in the east, and the
largo number of poople who havo
already come in during tho present
season, are matters for congratulation. But it would be very unfortunate if, when men seek out agricultural locations and come to the land
office for a title, they are informed
that no titlo can be given, as the
lands are reserved. We have a big
country —big enough in area to furnish a farm to every person who will
come here during the next hundred
years—but our arable lands are by
no means co-extensive with our
boundaries. Indeed, in comparison
with the vastness of our territory,
our good land is somewhat circumscribed. It is of very great import
ance that the first immigrants of the
season should experience no trouble
iu finding suitable lands, or in obtaining a satisfactory title. They
ale in many cases the pioneers—the
spies—who have been delegated to
spy out the land, and their report
will bring or keep back thousands
who are ready to come to this country as permanent settlers. Wo hope
our local government will leavo no
stone unturned to accomplish the
liberation of our railway lauds.
With respect to the dry-dock, we
need scarcely repeat that all British
Columbia, with the exception of a
very small section of the island, ia
heartily anxious that this work
should stop. It has been the cause
of more broken promises and more
mismanagement and mora absoluto
waste of provincial funds, perhaps,
than any other work in which this
country ever engaged, It is long
past time this prolific source of expenditure and political corruption
had been abandoned. A majority of
the present house, we believe, are
pledged to secure a release of the
province from tho completion of the
dry-dock, and the people are anxious
to know what they are going to do
about it. There nre roads and other
publie works everywhere throughout'
the mainland for which public funds
must be had if this province is to
become a respectable field for immigration, and we want for these permanent improvements the money
that is being squandered uselessly
on the dry-dock. The Colonist, some
timo ago, announced that the Dominion govornment had consented to
take over the dry-dock, but that
does not yet appear to have been
dono. Released from this incubus,
the province will be at liborty to
devote its wholo energies to tlie
legitimate work of its own development.
Whisky's Work.
From the Cheney Sentinel; "On
Wednesday afternoon of last week
VV. W. Nowlin was found in one of the
rooms back of a saloon in Walla Walla,
lying on tho floor in an unconscious
condition, ond his frothy lips nnd
othor indications pointed unmistakably
to poison. Physicians were at once
summoned and the usual antidotes administered, but there was no indication of resuscitation. Newlin comes
of a good family in the East. He came
to this const as Register of the U. S.
Land Office at Vancouver, and wot an
intelligent and educated lawyer, who
would have mado his mark in the
world but for tho overmastering habit
of indulging in strong drink. A year
or bo ago he went to Spokane Falls
and opened an office. He was a candidate for Probate Judge before our
last Republican convention. Last December he went to Walla Walla to
give public readings, and has remained
there ever since. Lately he hns been
occupying the position of night clerk
in the St. Louis Hotel, and until Tuesday bad not touched a drop of whisky
for several weeks. On Tuesday night
he drank freely, and on Wednesday
morning, when, it is supposed, he procured a closo of poison and took it as a
relief from tho power the drink fiend
hnd secured over him."
The Channel Tunnel.
The first mile of the Channel Tunnel
boring at Sangatto (France) being now
nearly completed, the works have been
inspected by a large party of distinguished visitors, amongst whom were
M. Leon Say, thu Chairman of tho
French Channel Tunnel Company; Baron Alphonse de Rothschild, of thu
Northern of France Railway; Baron
Gustavo do Rothschild, M. 1". Raoul
Duval, etc. Considerable time was
spent in the hooding, which was examined very minutely, especially that
portion which has boon but recently
cut, and great satisfaction was expressed at the general results of the
work, particularly with regard to the
high average rate of advancement at
whioh the boring is maintained. It is
understood that on tho completion of
the first milo of heading the French
Company will enter into a new contract with Col. Beaumont to continue
the boring.
A Wonderful Wine Taster.
A correspondent of the Boston Herald recently visited tho great wine
vaults in London aud tells of the old
wine-grader's skill at tasting wine.
He blindfolds himself and there is
poured into n glass four different kinds
of sherry. Ho takes a mouthful on
his tongue and at onco declares a mixture of four cheap bar-room sherries,
two of which havo been sweetened
with brown sugar and called by tho
abominable title of brown sherry. Ho
is right, and his noxt experiment is
with port, which ho correctly tests on
each trial. But when a bottle of
Cook's imperial champagne from St.
Louis is oponod he hesitates and declares it is a new one for him, but it is
a good wine, with more brandy in it
than it ought to have, and he thinks it
is from some northern grown grape.
He was entirely nonplussed over some,
applo whisky; but, when bottle after
bottle of champagne of tho standard
brands .was opened, he named every
one with great accuracy, giving the
year in each case—Pomery, 74, G. H.
Murom's 77, Vouve Cliquot '80, Heid-
sieck 78, King, and so on through the
list without an error. In each case he
simply brought a taste to his lips and
spat it out again nlmost direotly, and
then inhaled a breath from some-ammonia flavored water. I am told he
has an income of nearly £3,000 a year
from this branch of business alono,
but that he is bo inordinately vain of
his faculty that he will noglect everything to show it off, and even buy the
wine himself to do it with, if he can
secure a crowd of admirers.
Had Suffered Enough.
A gentleman was arraigned beforo
an Arkansas justice on tho chargo of
obtaining money undor false pretenses.
He had entered a store pretending to
boa customer, but proved to be a thief.
"Your namo is Jim Lickmore!" said
the justice.
"Yes, sir."
"And you are charged with a crime
that merits a long term in the Penitentiary?"
"Yes, sir."
"And you aro guilty of tho crime""
"I am."
"And you ask for no inorcyl"
"No, sir."   .
"You have had a greatdealof trouble
within the last two years?"
"Yea, sir, I have."
"You havo often wished thnt you
were dead?"
"I have, please your Honor."
"You wanted to steal money enough
to take you away from Arkansas!"
"You are right, Judgo."
"If a man stepped up and shot you
t" ust as you entered the store, you would
ave Bnid, 'Thank you, sir?''
"Yes, sir, I would. But, Judge,
how did you find out so much about
me!"
"Some timo ago," said the Judge,
with a solemn air, " I was divoreed
from my wife. Shotly afterward you
married her. The result is conclusive.
I discharge you. Hero tako this $50
bill.   You havo suffered enough."
Made Them Even.
"Arrested for carrying a pistol, was
ho ("asked a mngistrato of an officer,
referring to n gentleman who had just
beon arraigned. "Lot's soe the pistol." The weapon was produced and
handed to the Judge, who examined it
and asked:
"Where did you got it ?"
"Bought it at a hardware store."
"What did it cost 1"
"Fifteen dollars."
"Fine implement. How'U you
swop ?" and tho Judgo drew out a pistol nnd handed it to tho prisoner.
"Take 810 to boot."
"All right. I'll fino you SIO. That
makes us even."
A littlo girl wns walking on the
streot, tho other day, when she saw a
vory bow-legged man with a short coat
on. "Oh, ma!" 'she cried, "there's a
man with a tunnel under him!"

The Jlospltal Apiiolntuieiits.
Seme peoplo are inclined to doubt
the authority of the provincial government to appoint a medical officer
to the Royal Columbian Hospital,
and there are others who question
the "judieion" of the tlie proceeding.
We do not know on what authority
the appointment has beon made, but
it may reasonably be presumed thnt
the government knew what thoy
were doing when they took this
step. With respect to the propriety
of their making the appointment we
can apeak without hesitation. The
government contribute $4,250 a year
towards the maintenance of the institution, while the public contributions are very small indeed. Iii view
of recent developments the govorn-
' ment must have felt that there was
danger of the iutstitution falling
into disrepute; and they have not
only a right but a duty to see that
an establishment iu which they have
so large an interest is conducted in
such a way as will accomplish its
mission. The recent enquiry showed
clearly that the employment of two
medical officers conjointly did not
work satisfactorily. Each physician
had his patients, 'vho eventually became partizans, aud the sympathies
of the steward were with one or
other of the parties. Such a state
of things militated against the interests of the hospital, and could not
be but productive of harm. The
medical officer is now an officer of
the government, and as such he is
free from the influence of local parties, and may reasonably be expected
to see that the government's interests are protected.
A Wide Difference.
We do not know of any measure
before the legislature which has
given rise to so many conflicting
opinions as the Kootenay bill. From
day to day it is discussed in committee, and its friends aud opponents seem little nearer tlie poiut of
agreement than they were at tho
beginning. It is somewhat remarkable that some men whose opportunities for knowing the country have
been the best are yet completely at
variance with respect to this bill.
Mr. Orr, who professes to be thoroughly acquainted with Kootenay,
is a most stubborn opponent of the
bill, while Mr. Galbraith, the member for Kootenay, is just as strong
in its support. A public meeting
was held at Victoria last Saturday
night to discuss the scheme, and n
resolution was passed disapproving
of it. And yet Mr. Beaven, the
senior member for Victoria, is one
of its chief supporters I It is not remarkable that people should differ
somewhat concerning such a measure.
Th* fact is, Kootenay has a large
area, and very little is really known
by any of them about its actual
wealth. It may turn out to be
enormously rich or it may not.
Those who oppose the bill assume
that it it rioh: those who support
the bill deny that there is any tangible proof of its riches. Again, the
effect on trade of the construction of
the Columbia-Kootenay railway cannot with any degree of certainty be
predicted. The Nortii Pacific Bail-
way comes near the southern bound
ary of the district, and tho Canadian
Pacific Railway is expected to past
through or near it further north.
What channel trade will find most
convenient when these ways have
been completed depends upon so
many conditions yet unknown that
there is room for great diversity of
opinion. At the Victoria meeting
Mr. Allen asserted that the mines
of Kootenay were worth $50,000,-
000. Others have said that the
value of Kootenay mines is an unknown quantity, that no gold or
silver has beon found about Kootenay Lake, and that it may possibly
never be prospected or developed at
all unless by some suoh scheme as
the one now proposed. In view of
then atatements it seems to us tho
government ought to have the country thoroughly prospected themselves, or give sufficient inducement
to tome ona else to prospect it for
them. Then regions may he as valuable as Mr. Allen's imagination has
painted them, but since the discovery
of this country they have remained
practically unknown. If the proposed company will accept a charter
so framed as to secure the province
against imposition, let the charter be
granted: if thoy will not, let the
government themselves undertake
the development of Kootenay, aud
let us seo what it contains. It is
estimated that $60,000 would build
the proposed wagon road. The gov
eminent would find no difficulty in
borrowing this sum, and in any
event tho expenditure would be well
placed.

him, but the doctor sent hack word
-that ho had given all the ovidonco he
considered necessary in the case, and
refused to come. As the court was
then waiting for his evidence, the
magistrates issued a bench warrant for
tho doctor. He was promptly arrested

reprimand from tho bench, The
The doctor excused himself ou the
plea that ho had no material evidence
to give. The bench replied that it was
his duty to obey the summons, and the
business of the court to determine
whether the evidence was material or
not.

The Age of Dynamite.
Import im ( Discoveries lu Eiiglnml.
Despatches from Groat Britain aro
very alarming and prove conclusively
that the fiendish plots of the Fenian
organization have beeu more extensive
nnd perfect than was generally supposed. Last Thursday the police made
a raid on a suspected establishment in
Birmingham and found a nitro glycerine manufactory in full blast, and a
considerable quantity of explosive
material ready for uso. The concern
had been conducted vory secretly,-precautions having been taken by ingenious contrivance to .carry off and
destroy the vapors arising from the
manufactory. There were several persons arrested, and important documents found. Quantities of dynamite
and other explosive materials have also
been found In London. A large number of arrests have boon made, and it
is helioved documents and facts enough
havo been secured to bring about very
important results. A man named Norman, arrested in Fleet street, had ih
his possession a number of rubber bags
containing 150 lbs, of somo explosive
liquid. It is believed tho establishment at Birmingham and those in
London wero connected with each
other. It is believed that there are
othor similar establishments in various
parts of tho country, and that all are
under direction of O'Dunovan Rossa
and his Fenian associates in tho United
States, Theso discoveries have produced much excitement iu tho British
capital and throughout the .wholo empire, nnd tho greatest precautions nre
ovorywhoro being taken to guard
against surprise and disastor.

Death From Exposure*
m\K lkk-h ni:iKTi,i:ss<n\ino.
A few days ago a Chinaman named
Ah Loon camo down from Yale sick.
He was suffering continually from internal pains, and some of his limbs had
become swelled and stiff. He went to
Sing Lee's restaurant, un Front streot,
and as he had no money to pay for
either board or medical attendance,
the Chinese boarders at Sing Lee's
subscribed onough to provide for his
necessary wants. Sing Lee, however,
came to the conclusion thnt Ah Loon
was going to die, and be didn't wish to
bother himself with n corpse and n
funeral. On Friday last be hired nn
express wagon, put Ah Loon into it,
and had bim conveyed into the bush
about a mile aud a half back of
tbo .city. There Ah Loon wns laid
out beside a log, a piece of canvas having been erected over him for a tent.
On the evening of Friday, and through
the wholo night, it was cold, and vain
fell almost continually. Ah Loon had
scarcely anything to cover him, His
feot wero bare; he had no fire; and he
was left alone all night without food
or attention. The facts soon became
known, nnd somo of the moro humane
of the Chinamen sent out on Saturday
morning to ascertain how the sick man
was progressing. He was found very
low, A Chinese doctor was consulted
and prescribed a powder; but when it
reached Ah Loon ho was too far gone
to swallow it. He died at noon on
Saturday, Sing Lee was arrested on
Saturday morning and taken before
the police court. After hearing statements from thoso acquainted with the
circumstances the court decided to
commit him to gaol until it- was seen
whether Ah Loon would survive. As
soon as tho death became known Mr.
O. Todd, superintendent of police, held
an inquest on the body, at whieh Dr.
Trew gave it ns his opinion that the
man died from natural causes, accelerated by exposure. The doctor Baid
that no person in delicate health would
have survived the exposure which Ah
Loon suffered. Tho jury found that
the death of Ah Loon was accolerated
by exposure at the hands of Sing Lee,
and they found that Sing Lee did
felonously and unlawfully kill and slay
Ah Loon. Sing Lee will, therefore,
be detained in custody until the next
assize whon he will bo called upon to
faco tho cpusequences of bis inhuman
act.

The Bailey Murder.
Tlie Three PrlHonvrt* Commit fi-il.
The Bailey murder case came up
again last Saturday, boforo a bench of
magistrates composed of W. D. Ferris,
Esq., and Goo. C. Webster, Esq. Tho
three prisoners charged with tho murder wero in tho dook. Mr. McColl
appeared fur tho orown, assisted by
tbe government agent aud tbo superintendent of police; Mr, Bole appeared for the prisoners. The ovideuce
taken covered much ground already
gone over at the coroner's inquest nnd
published in these columns; wo shall,
therefore, givo only the new facta
brought to light. Tho witnesses examined un Saturday were Messrs,
Rosa, Cotter, Ewen, Herring, Hughes,
Walker, threo Indians, and Dr. Mclnnes. From tbe evidence given it appears that Bailey left Pitt Rivor about
« o'clock on Thursday morning, the
15th ult., for this oity, with a lot of
fish in bis canoe whioh he intended to
sell. Beforo leaving Mr. McLean, of
Pitt Eivor, had asked him to bring up
two kegs of beer, and Bailey bad a $20
bnnk note in his pocket. He came tu
this oity, sold his fish' for which Mr.
H. Herring paid him $12—eight B.lver
dollars and eight half dollars. He was
seen by several persons iu town that
day, and appears to havo left for homo
some time in the ovening.   Among
othors who saw liim on the fatal
Thursday was an Indian woman named
Jennie who saw him walking up front
st. in the afternoon iu company with
Potor and Jim, two of tho prisoners,
Bailoy never reached his home. Mr.
Boss, who was fishing that night near
tin upper end of Douglas Island, stated that about 11 o'clock he heard the
report of a gun down tbe river, but
could not say on which sido. About
an hour and a half afterwards ho hoard
a canoe passing up tho rivor, but could
uot toll who were in it. An Indian
mimed Jim, who lives in tho upper
part of the city, testified that about
10 o'clock on Thursday he saw Robertson, one of tho prisoners, at his canoe
wliich was on the edge of tho river.
Robertson wanted to borrow the canoe
to go home. Jim refused at first, but
afterwards lent him the canoe. He
returned it the following Monday,
Billy, an Indian who lives at Katsey,
found a hat lying near the Pitt River
railway bridgo about tho time of
Bailey's disappearance. Ho took it
homo and kept it until it was taken
away from him by Mr. Ross and Constable Walker. About the samo time
another Katsey Indian named Johnny
found u canoe iu Pitt River, between
Capt. Fittoudrigb's farm and Shannon's logging camp. The canoe wns
at the water's edge, bottom up, and
had tho appearance of having drifted
to that place, Tho canoo and hat woio
afterwards identified as belonging to
Bailey, Robertson, Poter and Jim
were arrested on suspicion. When
Constable Walker arrested Jim near
Katsey, he found liim fishing. Ho said
ho bad a warrant for him. Jim gave it
sort of laugh, but said nothing, He
got into tho constable's canoe, und
they started down tho river. Ross,
who accompanied tho constable, said
"We will have to go to tho ranch to
got tho bat.1' Jim thom said,''Why
don't you tako tho man that's got tho
hat as well as me J" Thoy went ashore
and Ross went up for the hat, When
ho had gone, Jim said to the constable, "Have any of tliose half-breeds
from abovo been down?" The consta-
blo said, "What half-broods ?" but
Jim made no reply. Although lie bad
not boon told by the constable why ho
was arrested, be seemed to understand
that it had somothiug to do with
Bailey. After the three Indians had
been for some time in gaol, Robertson
mado a confession. It was made in
presence of Messrs. J. O. Hughes, C.
Todd and Wm. Moresby, in tho gaol.
Wo do uot know what is contained in
that confession, as tho authorities refused to have it read in court, and it
has uot been made public, but Robert-
son is supposed to havo told all about
the murder, In consequence of the
information contained in that confession, Messrs, Hughes and Moresby, accompanied by tho prisoner Robertson
and somo others, went up to near the
mouth of Pitt Rivor and dragged for
the body of Bailey, and found it. Mr.
Hughes, testified that the place where
tho hody was fouiid corresponded with
the place indicated by Robertson in
his confession as nearly as 00 mon out
of 100 would doseribe n place. Tlio
body, on examination was found with
a bullet hole through tbe chest, aud a
wound on the head which the doctor
said must havo rendered Bailey insensible. Tho rost has already been published. The magistrates committed
the threo prisoners to stand their trial
at the next assize, which sits on the
2nd May. It is to bo hoped tho whole
mystery of this foul murder may be
fully cleared up, and nll thoso connected with it receive their just reward,
It is proper to remark that tbo police
and Mr. Hughes deserve much praise
for the manner in which they worked
up tho case.

PROVINCIAL JJECISLATURE.
FIRST SESSION OF THE FOURTH PARLIAMENT.
THU USD AY.
Mr, Orr moved tho second rending of tho
Sumns dyking aot amendment, and remarked that ho had received many communications in opposition to lt,--Mr. T,
Davie said ho believed it would Inflict
•groat injustice ou the settlers of Humas,
Ho said the settlors had been deeelvod hy
tho old dyke, nudnowltwiLspiv'P'is'-d lo
mnke the dyke good, which could not he
done. Ho now asked tho house in the
face of tho protest of a majority of settlers
of the district to amend tho act. The Into
chief commissioner accepted the dyke
whon it was iu an Imperfect state. Tho
honorable gcntloman then read a protest
from the peoplo of the mission against the
passage of the hill now before the house,
—Mr. Pooloy defended tho bll 1 and showed
that some ot tho settlers had tried to escape tho payment of tlieir j list dues to a
gentleman who hnd spent $05,000 on tho
dyke. The plans were altered hy the chief
commissioner, and on thnt fact some of
thoso sottlers now seek (o escape from an
honest liability. The opposcrs nre afrnid
that the dyke will ho mado good and they
will have to pay the money. Tho mission
people got up tlio opposition to tho schoiuo
last year,—Mr. Holgcsen said he thought
the Interests of the contractors were as
worthy of consideration as those of the
settlors, and they were not to blame for
the Hood which occurred last yoar.—Mr,
Armstrong said the contractor had not
carried out tlio conditions of tho contract
and tho,work was of poor description.
Tlie settlers were willing to pay, hut wished first to derive somo benefit from the
work.—After some further discussion the
debate wns ndjourned, .
Fill DAY.
Mr. Orr moved for correspondence relating to the salo for taxes to Jus, Morrison
of certain lots In New Westminster district, and that a committee be appointed
to enquire Into Mr. Morrison's chum. Mr.
Orr explained that Mr, Morrison bought
these lauds apparently In good faith, ami
got a deed from t hegoverument. But the
original owners had entered action for recovery of the land and Ihe poitrt decided
against Mr. Morrison, Ho hnd paid, for
land and law costs, about WOO,—Motion
carried.
Considerable discussion took place on a
private bill to extend Yates st., Victoria,
and somo other matters were disposed of.
The Kootenny bill was taken up, and
a clause Inserted eomiielllngthecompauy
to have the Innds surveyed within it certain definite time, Mr. Allen wanted a
clause which would prevent Chinese from
acquiring nn intowsf or obtaining employment tn connection with the scheme.
This motion gave rise to n good deal of
diversity, and the discussion wns finally
ndjourned aftor some hon, gentleman had
indulged iu a wordy skirmish.
In the evening session the Victoria olll-
elal man question wns discussed, after
wliich the Sumns dyking act wits Inkeii
up. Several members asked thnt tlie time
tost he extended beyond ono year, nnd
several telegrams were rend from settlors
asking tliat four years he allowed to test
the dyke, No dotlnite decision was
reached.
The Kootenny bill was taken up again
nnd tho proposal to debnr Chinese from
any participation in the concern wns discussed at considorablo length. It was the
general opinion that the legislature could
uot very welt prevent the employment of
Chinamen,
Enthusiastic Professor of Physics,

THE MINISTER'S SON.
CHAPTER XXXII.
Tha post waa delivered early at Inverallan on Sunday by a privato messenger, and included a copy of Chitchat., whioh was published on Saturday
afternoon. It waa Miss Forbes who
took it in. Sir Duncan disliked ita
touo; and his daughter did uot care
about it; but Aunt Alicia, though she
admitted the vulgarity of certain of its
articles, found it an excellent gazette
of fashionable news, and was not
'averse to the columns which were
headed "This Week's Chat." Under
this title were included notices of marriages to be, and marriages whieh tho
Chit-chat said were to bo; gossip from
the clubs; and little paragraphs full of
dashes and initials, in which nn expectant public was tantalized with
mysterious allusions to the next edifying scandal.
In the number delivered on this particular Sunday a heading iu large typo
caught Miss Alicia's eye as she sat in a
low, sloping chair, with her feet on a
soft footstool, and a table at her elbow,
on which lay a scent-bottle, a few
books adapted for the day, and her
letters. She was not going to church,
for she did not feel well, and she intended to read a sermon when tbe others left, but in the mean time sho must
just tako a glance at her favorite
paper. As she read the paragraph
with the large letters she sat forward
irr her chair, and when she had ended
sho jumped up, every bracelet and
chain about her tinkling, and ran to
the door, calling her brother.
"What iB the matter ?" he exclaimed, hurrying toward her from the
dining-room, wliere he was reading his
letters.
"My dear Duncan! do come and
look at CVii'-c/ui/—tho most disgraceful paragraph—oh, you should bring nn
notion for libel—it's dreadful, dreadful!" cried she, excitedly.
Sir Duncan strode into the drawing-
room and took up tho papor. This
was what he read there:
"ELOPEMENT    AND   SINGULAR   REVELATIONS.
"Light W at last penetrated tho
darkness that enveloped Mrs. Jenkins
in her flight from Piershill. A hint
given by an anonymous writer occasioned a careful search, and nn envelope was found among her property
bearing the post-mark of Tillybodle.
The writing was identified as that of
a newly-made officer, whoso exploits
have attracted some attention; probably he did not expect this last one to
be known. He has eloped with Mrs.
Jenkins to London, where search is
being made for her. The most singular part of the story is that "Z," the
anonymous writer, is believed on excellent authority to be a lady, from
childhood an intimate friend of both
the officer and his family, and woll
known in the neighborhood of Tillybodle by her position and her personal
merits.'
"What do you think of your pet
paper now, Alicia 1" asked her brother.
"It is horrible! What will you dol"
"Do! Nothing. No name or initial
is given. I could not have a man up
for writing that paragraph; and if I
could I would rather submit to a libel
than tarnish my name by going into
court with such a foe. But," lie added, somewhat sternly, "perhaps yon
will see now that I have grounds for
saying that that paper ought never to
be seon on a lady's table."
"I'll have nothing more to do with
it; I'll atop it at once," said Miss
Forbes, quite humbly.
"That we will seo about. It will
not do to show you are hurt, or they'll
put yoii in next," replied Sir Duncan,
grimly. "This will be a fresh blow to
the Bennetts, though, if they see it
oopied into any other paper. Of course
tbey don't subscribe to that thing."
When Hardwicke arrived after
church the expression of his face was
confident and keen. He talked gayly
to the ladies during lunch, passing
over, with merely a word or two of
sympathy, tho topio of Ronald's troubles; but when he accompanied Sir
Duncan to the library his demeanor
changed.
"I saw that atrocious papor on your
table. Some one boa sent it to us," he
aaid. "I am confirmed by it in the
guess I made yesterday."
"Are you ? My dear fellow, what is
it?"
"That "fi is Badger himself. I know
he has dealings with Chit-chat, for I've
seen him leaving the oflico. It isn't
likely that Jenkins would have stopped in Stirling to insert that abominable paragraph, even if ho know
enough of Bennett's friendships; he'd
havo missed tho train to Edinburgh.
Then somo ono in Stirling did it, or
how was it printed ou Saturday morning—tell me that?' Baid Hardwicko,
triumphantly.
-'Upon my honor, I hardly thought
the man could lmvo been so shabby;
but I believe you are right. Now,
what is to bo done I"
A long consultation ensued, thu result of whioh neod not be told in dotail, since its execution failod.
Sir Duncan, indeed, went to bis
friend the lawyer on tho following day,
arriving in Edinburgh at an hour that
astonished the office, and mado it appear that his business was of a vory
pressing nature. The lawyer, after
due discussion, drove oil to Piershill,
but waa forced to return with tho disappointing information that lie had
found tho bird flown. Mr. Jenkins
had gone to London on Sunday morning. Nothing, therefore, could bo done
in that quarter, and Sir Duncan wont
home to Inverallan, with, however,
the express understanding that tlio
affair waa to be pushed according to
the plan that he and Hardwicke had
agreed on, tho moment the riding-
master should return.
Letters were awaiting Sir Duncan,
for he had left long before the post-
hour, and smong them was one from
Ronald, written after recoiving his and
hia parent's epistles. It wot but a note
thst he sent, but it wns as manly na it
was brief. He acknowledged at onco
that he had aided Mn. Jenkins in
making her escape, but declined to
give any details. "I would answer
your questions fully, but for two reasons: first, I am sworn to seerocy, as is
obviously necessary; and secondly^ if,
as is likely, Jenkins endeavors to bring
any case against me, I can best serve
my friends by leaving them in total
ignorance of tho matter. This I will
say—on my word of honor, I havo
done nothing tbat I am ashamed of, or
that I would not do again; and I can
but ask my best and wisest friends to
trust mo."
"God bless tbe boy!" ejaculated Sir
Duncan as he read the note. "There,
Alicia and Muriel, read that, and tell
me if you'd .take that fellow's word or
—Captain Badger's i"
"Dear, dear," said Miss Forbes,
wiping her eyes, "what a good note!
You ure quite right, dear brother; he
is a very worthy young gentleman."
Muriel said nothing; but na she
handod back tlio note to her father he
thought ho saw a softer expression
about her mouth than it had worn for
the last two or threo days.
To liis parents Ronald wrote iu
much tho samo strain; and whilo Mrs.
Bennett oponly exulted ever his letter,
the minister admitted that his fears
were considerably lessened.
No one, however, was moro indignantly certain that Ronald would vindicate himself than Jamie Pateraon,
to whose ears the tidings had conic on
that Monday morning as thoy did to
the wholo village. One of the daily
papers oopied tho notice in Chit-chat;
and thorefore, in a few minutes after
tho arrival of the post, tho placo wns
astir.
Evory ono hnd known thnt something wns wrong—old Nancy's faco
nlone betrayed thnt—but no rumor of
tho truth hnd ns yet been sprend; so
thnt it burst upon the landlords of the
two public-houses, the principal grocer
nnd butcher, and the two or threo
others who indulged in daily papers,
liko n thunder-clnp.
Vory soon the ownor of the Rob Roy
wns seen orossing the street, paper in
hand, to the grocer's shop; the butcher
went over to the draper s; and finally
the telegraph-clerk ran into Jamio
Pnteraon's with tho news. In a fury
of indignation tho old man put on his
coat nnd hurried awny to rend the
offending notice in the bar of tho Rob
Roy, and there and then denied it
with nil tho emphasis of his sturdy
lungs.
"It's a coufoonded leo! And gin I
konn't tho man that wrote it, I'd gar
him feel the weight o' my airm, though
I'm auld. My certio, anger wad gio
mo back what years hao ta'en awa'!
I'd yoke n' tho lads in the placo on
him, nnd pit him in the pond to cool
his leein' tongue — that's what I'd
dne!" cried he; nnd there wns a murmur of assent and applause, for Ronald was popular in his native place,
and no one eredited tho tale; or at
least, ii nny one doubted, he or she
would not have dared to say bo.
"Phewl" said Jamie, wiping his
forehead us ho went back to his work,
"that's the nmist shamefu' thing I've
heard this mony n dny. The fulo!
It's littlo he kens o' Ronald Bennett,
or ho wnd hae keepit aff that subjoo'.
He'd no' look at ony woman, though
she was the vera queen o' beauty her-
sel'. Nn, na; aula Jamie kens better
nor that; he ken whaur thebitlav'rock
hings in the lift; and a sair heart the
laddie'll hae when he reads yon paper."
While Ronald's affairs were thus
tbo main topic that occupied the
thoughts of his friends he himself had
passed a sufficiently anxious week.
The doily persual of the Scotch paper
which he had ordered kept him instructed as to the progress of affairs at
Piershill, and had given him sufficient
warning of impending discovery even
before he had received the sorrowful
letters from home, which assured him
that Jenkins would soon invade his
retreat. All these things did not tend
to render him more fit for the examination he wns to undergo, but he
wna quietly determined thnt no complication of Ellen's or her husband's
causing should interfere with his success; and he braced himself for his
task, and resolutely banished tho one
thought whioh shook him—"What
wilt Muriel say or think I"
Strong in the approbation of his
conscience, ho had no fear of Mr.
Jenkins, and he felt confident of his
own power to right himsolf both nt
the mouse nnd with Sir Duncan; but
whon he rememberod Muriel's grave
face, and the constraint of hur manner toward him, his heart sank, and
he wished that bo had never soon
poor Ellen again.
At Sandhurst ho had mot his former cabin companion, Harris—who
had so charitably tnken charge of him
in his first visit to London, hod
chosen his tailor for him, nnd had
piloted him to the levee—and after a
day or two he resolved ou admitting
him into his confidence.
Harris had already asked him what
ailed him, and had commented on his
increased gravity and lovo of solitudo;
so that it wns easy for him to respond
fully to his quoations.
"I'm in a confounded moss, and if
it wouldn't bore you I'd liko to consult
you."
"Boro mo, my doar follow! Why
should it bore mel Come along nnd
hnvo a smoke; I'm twico ns clenr-hcnd-
ed whon I've a pipe in my mouth."
Over a pipe, therefor, Ronald pourod
forth his tale, and found thnt Hnrris
hnd Boon Jenkins.
"A brute he ia, too," said ho. "Cap
ital follow at his work—no fault to find
with him there; but I'm devilish sorry
for his wife."
"So am I," replied Ronald, and continued his story. Whon it wns ended
Hnrris looked at him nnd knocked iho
ashes out of his pipe in silence.
"Look here, Bennott: I'm not
given to making professions, but you're
n good fellow, nnd if you want anybody tn soe you through tliis or anything else, I'm your mon."
"Thniik you, Hnrris, I'm awfully
obliged to you," said Ronald, "nud I
wish you'd give mo your advice."
