Some Plain Troths.
For some time tlm Viotoria Colonist has beon making the moat of a
paragraph said to hare been copied
from the Fort Towwend Argus.
The pitngra|ih read aa follows: "In
the house of commons, on the 11th
ini',, Sir Charles Tupper said: 'Not
content with stopping at Fort Moody
aa the terminus on the west, this
house has sanctioned terms by which
that great road (the C. F. R.) will
be pushedto Victoria.'" From this
reputed declaration tho Colonist has
been building magnificent air castles
with which to gratify the peoplo of
Victoria. It has endeavored to persuade the public that the matter of
the terminus was now Bottled, and
undoubtedly Victoria would be thn
favored spot. Of course every main-
lander knew that tbe position was
supremely absurd. Viotoria can
never be the terminus of the.C. F.
R. any more than it- can be the ter
minus of the Northern Pacific. The
Colonist was simply indulging in
that philosophic practice to which
some people resort in the face of real
or imaginary danger-whistling to
keep its courage up. We wore somewhat surprised to Und an article in
tho Standard of last Monday referring to this subject. Our surprise
nrose from the fact that, in its anxi
ety to hit the Colonist and the gov.
eminent, the Standard blurts out
some plain truths which one would
never expect to find in a Victoria
newspaper. These truths refer to
the relationship of Victoria to the
C. F. R, terminus, and they are of
buHicient importance to deserve the,
serious consideration at the provincial capital. After quoting the declaration snid to have been uttered
by Sir Charles Tapper, the Standard
talks to Victoria like a Dutch uncle.
It says:
"Now, there is no uso in mislead
ing the public, abroad or at home,
with any such erroneous statements
as are contained in tho above iteut.
Moreover, the terminus question is
too serious a one to Victorians to
submit to trilling on the subject, or
to being deluded by false statements
and sensational headings, when the
means of refutation are at hand. We
feel that Victorians have too large a
stake in this city that is placed in
jeopardy by tke bad faith of the Dominion Government in meeting its
railway obligations to this section of
the country, and by the wicked arrangement called tbe Settlement
Aot, under which Victoria and Vancouver Island are completely cut off
from the Canadian Pacific Railway,
terminating at Fort Moody. True,
some such item ob the above appeared in a Winnipeg paper, and subsequently was republished here. But,
with the Hansards before us, we are
in a position to state that the Commons, did not meet on tbe 11th,as
it wu Good Friday; but, on the
10th Sir Chas. Tupper, iu moving
tbe House into committee on a resolution to authorise the Governor in
Council to grant* subsidies to certain
railways and railway companies in
the middle and eastern provinces,
and alter opening the. subject with a
general observation as to the "nn.
equalled efforts that Canada had
made to span the continent from
ocean to ocean, said:
"The House, I think, will agree
with me, when I say that the. Pro
vino, of Britisli Columbia—because
I will begin on the Paoifio—has not
been neglected in the provision made
for railway construction. We have
not only provided for this rapid completion of our great national work,
the Canadian Pacifio Railway, to the
harbor of Fort Moody; but vie have
during tie present session, also made
provision for extending s line of
railway from Nanaimo down to the
harbor of Viotoria—thus providing
very fully and efficiently for the development of that section of this
great Dominion."
Now, no one in his senses, who
reads the Hansard ot the 10th ult.
will be able to make Sir Charles
Tupper's real utterance mean what
is contained in the item on which
the Argus commented. We certainly would be delighted if it could be
truthfully interpreted to mean that
Viotoria bad been iu the recent sea-
tion made the terminus of the Cana-
lian Pacifio Railway. We would,
in that ease, feel that the railway
«ar with Canada was at an end, and
bat the time had arrived when other
mportant national questions in
thiol) this province is deeply conjunct! could be taken up and fully
liseuBsed. As it is, howevor, the
ranscontinental railway question is
till unsettled. The Canadian Pact-
io Railway stops, it is true, at Fort
loodyat present; but that never
an be more than a temporary ter-

minus on the mainland, That was
tho view taken by Mr. Engineer
Cambie in Iub report in 1877 or
1878, that was Mr. Mackenzie's position, and iB the conclusion of everybody wbo is not crazed by town lot
gambling in Port Moody. It is self-
evident to any one acquainted witli
the topography of the Burrard Inlet
country—to any ono competent to
form a correct notion as to where
the Canadian Pacific should stop on
the mainland--that English Bay trill
bo the muinland terminus. To ox.
toud it to that point will cost possibly $000,000; a much larger sum
has been estimated by Mr. Cambio—
about $900,000. But that we think
above the mark for fifteen or sixteen
miles of railway. If it, however,
oost (900,000, the lands west of
Port Moody that have recently necii
withdrawn from "purchase or preemption," if properly und honestly
managed and sold, will yield more
than half of that amount, and this
might be made to operate as a land
subsidy to any company equal to
half the expenditure necessary folks construction. Sir Charles Tupper, however, did not tell the Commons that this short line of railway
would be built, nor that a railway
ferry would be established connecting English Bay with Vancouver
Island. Neither have the James
Bay Government promised it, conse<
quently Victoria is cut off from the
Canadian Pacific Railway for the
present, for which we have to thank
the James Bay and Ottawa Governments and their harpies. We believe,'we have an unshaken belief,
that Victoria will become . the real
ocean terminus of the Canadian Pacifio Railway. But at present, owing to tlio bad faith of Canada and
the cowardly surrender of the Local
Government, tho nearest point of
the Esquimalt and Nanaimo railway
will be fifty-two miles by water
from the Canada Paoifio."

NEWS FROM AU. PARTS OF THE WORLD.
London. May 0.—John Eldon Gorst
and Henry Ceoil lluikes, conservative
members of the commons, havu joined
Churchill iti withdrawing from the conservative union,their aim being to form
a new party. The now principles will
be the adoptionofaconservntivedemocratic programme. Churchill nsked
Salisbury to consent to the establishment of a central council, which shnll
guide the electoral organisation, mid
advocate free education and prepare a
measure having in view the subordination of the land question tu social topics.
Preliminaries of tho Egyptian conference are settled. The conference
will meet at London during the first
week in June and is expected to last
three weeks.
Gen. Wolseley advises that Gen.
Graham be placed in command of the
autumn expedition to Khartoum if an
English force is sont. The war offlce
plan is for 50,000 troops to start from
Assiout for Khartoum about the end
of July.
Russia, Germany and Austria are
discussing common measures looking to
the supervision, production and sale of
dangerous explosives. England nnd
France are not invited to participate.
London, May 6.— Parliamentary
documents just published include a
dispatch to the British Minister in
Egypt from Gen. Gordon, dated Khartoum, April 10th, in which he says :-—
"As far as I understand the situation
you state there is no intention of send
ing relief to Berber. You refuse* me
Zehelir Pasha and I consider myself
forced to net according to circumstances, 1 shall hold on neie as long as
I oan. If 1 can suppress tho rebellion
I shall do so. Otherwise I shall retire
to the equator and leave to you the indelible disgrace of abandoning the garrisons of Sennoar, Kassala, Berber and
Dongols, with the certainty that ynu
will eventually be forced to smash up
the Mahdi, under grent difficulties, if
?ou want to maintain peace in Egypt."
'he documents include a telegram from
Ool. Stewart to Sir Evelyn Burring, in
which he aays: " Gen. Gordon hns acquainted me with your intention tn relieve Khartoum. < It is proposed that I
shall go to Berber, trusting to the
success uf your negotiations for opening the Suakin and Berber routes,
doubting, however, success so fnr us
the Berber rond is ooucenied, unless
it is opened by the advancing troops,
I am inclined to think that niy retreat
will be by way'of the equator,andstiall
therefore follow Gen. Gordon's fortunes," Vice Consul Power also telegraphed the minister, "Ishall fol]ow<
Gen. Gordon to the equator, It is a
less risky route, but should the Arabs
possibly reach Berber, we Bhould bu
entirely blockaded on the northeast
nnd west,"
Cairo, May fl.—An Arab journal af-
firms that EI Mahdi demands £600,000
ransom for Gen. Gordon, the sum to
be paid to the Mahdi within three
months.
Bbblin, May 0.—The North German
Gazette, commenting upon tlie recognition by the U, S. of the African as*
■ociation of Congo, rbks who and what
is this association? Its statutes aro
not published, and it is not eveu
known whether it possesses any corporate right.
London, May 0,—Bismarck has sent
forward a protest to London and Lisbon against tho ratification of the Congo treaty. It is reported that tho King
of Belgia has intimated to Earl Granville his readiness to dispatch Henry
M. Stanley, tlie African oxplorer, to
lead an expedition to the highest accessible point in the Congo region for the
purpose nf aiding Gen. Gordon in his
retreat from Khartoum, upon the condition that the English Government
shall recognize the International African Association,

The PerjBD Cases.
From our report ,i the court proceedings it will be seen that the
Lhrea perjury esses failed in consequence ol tiie magistrates having
neglected to tako the declarations in
Iheir official capacity. Tho chief jus-
tied was of opinion thut iho ovidonco
was sutEuiont to convict, but the ir.
fui'iitulity of the declaration was, of
course, t'utul. These cases liavo re-
eeive'l a good deal of public attention, because the mon involved were
well known, ami more especially boon use it is suspected that there nro a
great many other jteople in tho country who occupy a position very similar to iho licensed. Tt is believed
there* arc hundreds of sections now
li'-ld nniler the pre emption or hoiue-
Htcitd aet which have been obtained
l.y improper declarations, lt is a
common notion among cortain people
that, there is nn harm in cheating
the government. People who wonld
scorn to repudiate a debt owed to u
fellow citizen will sometimes take
advantage of the government with*
out fora moment reflecting tliat they
ure guilty of wrongdoing. This kind
of ethics is both dangerous and demoralizing, and if tbe cases from
Mud Bay result in preventing a repetition of such offences, they will
be productive of great good. The
publio landB in this district are not
so extensive that they should be
alienated indiscriminately, and it is
just as bad to make a false declaration affecting the government as ono
nllccting uu individuul. It cannot
bo too widely known that such
declarations are worthless, or that
the persons making them arc guilty
of deliberate perjury.
Stuck Again.
A drspilch from Ottawa says it is
reported that tlie' Canadian Pacifio
-Railway Syndicate still finds itself
in serious financial difficulty. Tbe
{30,000,000 loan obtained from the
Canadian Gorernment was not, of
course, at all sufficient to carry the
woiks of th. company to completion,
but it was hoped that this money
would prevent a decline in the stock
ami enable the company lo go into
tbe money market with much better
success. The lesult does not seem
tn hu.ve justified these expectations.
It is reported thnt the C. P. R.
.stock has uot gone up, but shows un
opposite tendency. After the close
of the session Sir Chas. Tupper went
to New Vork, and it was said that
the object of his mission was to endeavor if possible to improve this
stock in the market. If that was
bis object, it seems to have been
completely unsuccessful, and he has
returned to Ottawa discouraged.
When the Canadian government
agreed to advance the loan nsked by
the syndicate, it look ns security a
mortgage ou the road. It is now
asserted that this mortgage has
damaged the syndicate's credit far
more than all the advantage which
may be derived from the loan. It
is now hinted that an application
will be made to the Dominion government to surrender tho mortgage
so as to relieve the syndicate from
embarrassment. But it is scarcely
likely that such a proposal, if made,
would be seriously entertained,
While every patriotic Canadian, and
especially every Britisli Columbian,
is anxious to see our transcontinental
railway completed and ablo to handle
nnd push the business which will
come to it, it ia possible thtt we
have already gone far enough in
assisting this company out of the
public exchequer. It must be admitted that the present embarrass,
ment has to a great extent resulted
from the company's own greed. Instead of confining its energies and
capital to the construction of the
railway for which it was created and
heavily subsidized by the Dominion,
it has boen paying millions of dollars to buy up othor reads iu every
direction, The syndicate probably
owns more miles nf railway outside
of tbe 0. P. It. than would reach
from Lake Superior to tbe Rocky
Mountains. It has gobbled tip every
road (except tho Grand Trunk) that
might by any chance come into competition with it; and it has procured
tbe disallowance of railway charters
whero there was not even a probability of competition, It was not for
this purpose the syndicate roceivod
its liberal charter end still more
liberal subsidies from the government'; and if financial troubles have
followed its schemes of expansion
ond monopoly, wo do not know that
it is entitled to any special sympathy
from the. people of Canada. But
the road must be built; end if It
■ _*__:
cannot be completed by the present
company, let the charter bo suucii-
dered, and let tho govornmont take
possession of the concern. We believe this is the only plan that will
produce a result satisfactory to tho
country. So long as competing
roads aro denied, and the syndicate
exercises the rights it obtained in
tho charter, so long will there be
monopoly, oxecssivo charges, and
consequent discontent among the
people. Tho late agitation in Manitoba, and the attitude of that province at the present time, show
clearly wlmt may be looked for. As
the great north-west becomes settled
up, and the interior of this province
grows in papulation, the discontent
will become inure and mure aggressive. It may not be possiblo for u
handful of scattered peoplo to shape
the legislation of tlio country, but
when that handful has grown into
millions,.the federal parliament will
bo forced both to listen and to net.
If the 0. P. R, were a government
road, its tariff could be modified
whenover the circumstances of the
country would admit. The peoplo
themselves, through their representatives in parliament, would bo the
real directors, aiid tlie roail would
be run wholly in the interests of
the country. Tho money and lands
given as a bonus would lie .sufficient
to build tbe road, and there would
be very little, if anything, addod to
tbe national debt. If the syndicate
can't build it without additional
bonuses, let the nation take it nnd
make of it a national railway according to the original design.

K«-ptlan Affairs.
Anything relating to Egypt, and
especially the Soudan, is just now
scanned with the greatest interest
by all civilized people. The other
day we said that the situation of
Khartoum was something whieh no
person could comprehend. The luteal despatches throw no real light
upon this mystery. There sre sev
era) things coming to tire surface,
however, which muy be of interest.
A lato London despatch to the New
York Sun says: The Khedivo has
notified the British Government
that because of the indecisive nature
of tbe Knglish policy in Egypt,
which has long been one of intolerable annoyance, and has now become
absolutely dangerous, the Egyptians
have made up their minds that England really moans to remain in
Egypt permanently and thoroughly
Anglicize the country, end they believe that Mr. Clifford Lloyd, the
Under Secretary for Egyptian Affairs, has been selected ub the chief
Britisli instrument for bringing this
about. Tho intrigues started by
him, and which resulted iu the recent threat of tbe Egyptian "Ministry
to resign unless he was recullcd, and
in the absolute resignation of Solid
Pasha, Minister of the Interior, and
Lloyd's immediate superior, are
looked upon us an understood .part
of the Britisli programme toward
Egyptian denationalization. Tewfik
has come to be regarded us u truitor
to his country, who has absolutely
sold out thn Egyptian peoplo to the
English Government, and. is biding
his time for a final retreat from
Egypt upon the wealth given hiin in
bribes, and ho is hated by the fellaheen with a mortal euemity. Recently the Khedive has received
many threatening messages, and ho
now complains that he is in receipt
of letters ordering him to abdicate
and leave the country under penalty
of assassination. General Sir Henry
William Gordon, K, 0. It., brother
of Genoral Gordon, had an import
ant conference lately with" Lord
Granville. In an interview with
your correspondent immediately after the conference, Sir Henry Gordon said that he had expressed to
Lord Granville his belief that Gen.
Gordon was in no personal danger,
and advised that the Govornment
would await the arrival of Gen. Sir
Gerald Graham, who ia a warm per
sonal friend of Gen, Gordon, and
who accompanied him np tho Nile
as far as Dongola on his wny to
Khartutim, Gen. Graham is now
on his way to England, as well as
Sir Evelyn Baring and' Mr. Clifford
Lloyd, and is expected toarrive with
them on Monday. Sir Henry Gordon also warned Earl Granville that
Sir Evelyn Baring was an enemy of
Gen. Gordon, and cautioned him to
receivo with distrust the advice tbat
the Minister to Egypt might give as
to the moans of relieving the Soudan garrisons. Sir Henry called
attention to the rematkoble fact that
a large number of women and children who were sent down the Nile
from Khartoum last February for
safety are still detained at Berber,
and aro in fully as much danger
there at present as thoy were in
February at Khartoum, lord Granville agreed that this was a most
extraordinary faot, and said that be
had repeatedly telegraphed to Sir
Evelyn Baring and to Hussein
Pasha, tho Governor of Berber, for
information as to the reasons for tho
detention of these refugees, but had
nover received any satisfactory reply. In conclusion Sir Henry Gordon told Lord Granville that he felt
sure thnt his brother was delighted
at being out off from communication
with the rest of the world, as ho was
thus left to pursue liis plans for the
restoration of order unhampered by
orders from Cairo ind London such
as had been in tbe past confusing
•nd embarrassing to the last degree.

Tub Oriental Bank, — An exchange
says: The reported failure of thia great
financial concorn, which has its branches in London, Singapore, Ceylon, Australia and elsewhere, is confirmed. Its
liabilities are enormous, The bank is
sure to drag many companies down
with it. *The Ceylon Company, which
owed the Oriental 010,000,000, haa already gone, and there is a general feeling of distrust in the stability of other
large concerns that did business with
tho distressed bank. The scenes which
followed the failure of the City of
Glasgow bank may bo re-enacted in
this case, A San Francisco dispatch
says: " The failure of the Oriental
bank of London is town talk in Sau
Franoisco. The bank of California
formerly transacted a vary large exchange business with the Oriental
bank, but about three yoars Ago transferred its accounts to the Rothchilds,
Thomas Brown, secretary of the bank
of California, saya the failure of tho
bank involves £7,000,000, or 935,000,.
000, which the stockholders will bo
obliged to pay less assets, as they are
responsible for nil deficiencies under
English law." The notes of the Oriental Dank are extensively circulated in
China and India. The suspension evidently results from ill-timed advances
to Oriental merchants.

Supreme Court.
Hefore Sir M. B. Begbie, Chief Justine,
Tho spring assize of the supremo
court opened at 11 a,m. on Wednesday.   There was a fair number of spe
tators.    After the usual opening fo
matities, the
.   GRAND JURY
was impanneled, as follows: W. Harris
(foreman), R.H.Alexander, John Armstrong, Hugh Burr, Ed. A. Cook, J.A,
Calbick, W, Carscatlcn, J. A. Clark,
Thos, Krnngton, A. C. Fraser, Thos.
W.Gray, D.B.Grant, H. Hoy, .J. Hammond, J, Hendry, Adam Innes, John
Jolly, John Stephenson, nnd A. C.
Wells.
THE INDICTMENTS
wero then delivered to the grand jury,
and His Lordship proceeded to address
them, remarking that thoy hud a considerable amount of business before
them; but, with the exception of two
canes of a very important description,
there were none that posseBaud any
distinctive features of n graver nature,
more than could be reasonably expected iu a community sit tinted as ours,
with a largo passing population incident to railwav construction, and the
proximity of sea-faring interests. The
learned judge then examined the sov-
oral cases that wonld come before the
grand jury, and dwelt at snmu length
aud in a lucid muuiier on the various
points of law involved. After touching
on tho Chinese larceny cases, His Lordship took up the assanlt cases and
showed the difference between-tho various kinds of assault—assault with intent to commit murder, with intent to
do grievous bodily injury, and assault
with intent to maim. Tho grand jury
were told that it was their duty to find
true hill.-i in overy case if there wero
reasonable pretexts for so doing, as
then the prisoners would bo brought
to trial and either convicted or acquitted, whereas, if bills were nut returned, the prisoners would be liable at nny
timo to bo brought up again ou the
same indictment. In plain words he
told tho jury that they should err, if
nt aU, on the sido of severity.
THE PERJURY CASE
was then handled by His Lordship,
and the term "perjury" elucidated and
explained at considerable length iu
-.-elation to Dominion and provincial
statutes bearing ou the subject, und
the jury instructed that if they were
of opinion that thu prisoners had made
un untrue statement—untrue to their
own knowledge—they should find a
true bill against them,
THE GAMBLING CASE,
un indictment for keeping a common
gambling houso, was next considered,
nud the law laid down clearly, defining
a common gambling house, and showing what wns unlawful gaming and
what was nut. A common gambling
limine must bo open to all comers,
'Wjiero the" dealer has any advantage
over thu other players, the game is unlawful. Lotteries ami raffles were absolutely illegal, and His Lordship regretted lhat (they were so very common
nnd fashionable." A private game, in a
place, not devoted to the purpose, could
not be uoid.!« be unlawful. If the
jury were satisfied that the accused
were in charge of a room w here gaming
was carried on, and where anybody
that chose could enter und engage in
gambling, lhey would be perfectly justified in bringing iu a true bill.
IN CONCLUSION,
the learned judge informed the grand
jury that, if they thought thero was
prima facie evidence against all these
men, it would be their duty to find
true bills in every case. They .would
have the privilege of examining the
witnesses in the various cases, and he
had very littlo douot but what they
would be able to find a true bill in
every instance. His Lordship animadverted somewhat severely on the
careless and inaccurate manner of taking depositions practiced by the magistrates (generally, showing that these
depositions wero not always to bo de-
ponded on and in many cases were little bettor than nothing.
The grand jury then retired and the
court adjourned till 1 p.m.
IN THE AFTERNOON, '
the grand jury came in to court at
half-post one, having found true bills
against Ah Lack (larceny), and George
(misdemeanor), and thrown out the indictments against Levi (assault), niid
Ah John (larceny.) The jury then retired to deliberate on the remaining
cases, and in the course of the day,
found true hills against the following:
Miller (gambling), Joseph Oormas
(cutting and wounding), Chamber-
luyne (attempt to murder), Barry (assault on guard) McKenzie (perjury),
Win. McKee (perjury), John MoKee
(perjury). Tho only indictments
thrown out were Levi (assault), Ah
John (larceny), and a move serious
charge of felony against George. Whon
the grand jury had completed their
work they were dismissed uy tho Chief
Justice, who invited them to present
to him any mutters they wished, of
either ti criminal or civil nature, dm-
tug his stay here.     :- ** ■ J -:       I

was tho first casu (hat came before the

for misdemeimnr. In this case thu
prisoner, a little Indian lad of about 11
years, was charged with removing fishplates from and placing obstructions
upon the railway traok in the vicinity
of Nicomt'ii, thereby .endangering passing trains. A jury was impanneled
aud Felix sworn as interpreter. Tl ere
wero several witnesses examined, mostly Indians, among them a tittle fellow
of 7 years, who was manifestly awo-
stricken by tho formidable array of
shoohwn house tyhees. After a grent
deal of cross-examination, thn prosecution rested the case. Tho Cliief .Justice (fathered frum tho evidence thnt

for assaulting a guard at the penitentiary. Tbe indictment contained three
counts—assault with jnteut to murder
assault with intent to do grievous
bodily harm, and assault with intdnt t
disable. The prisoner, by the advice
of tne Chief Justice, pleaded not
guilty. After tho jury had been ioi-
piinnelled, tho warden of the penitentiary and three guards (besides tliu assaulted guard, James Filsgerald.) wore
sworn in, and testified, thoir evidence
being strongly corrobomtive. Dr. C.
N, Trew was also sworn in, and testified as to the nature aud extent of the
injuries received. It is not necessary
to detail the evidence, as ths facta
have already been published, and bur
readers are familiar with the material
features of the case. Thu prisoner, on
being asked if he hud anything to say
to the jury, made a somewhat lengthy
statement, wliich was substantially ns
follows: On the 14th of June, 1882,
ho had beun sentenced at Victoria to it
7 years' term of imprisonment iu the
provincial penitentiary ; that he dad
been treated with undue harshness
over since; that his health was bad,
and that the treatment of thu surgeon
(Dr. Trew) had tended to aggravate,
instead of abate, his malady; that lie
liad overheard enough to convince him
that there was n conspiracy botween
t ho officers of tho penitentiary, or some
of thom, and the penitentiary surgeon,
to curtail his existence by means of the
medicino administered tu lum ; and
that he was compelled to commit an
assault In ordor to get a chance in tho
court in order to expose tlio schemes
against hiB life. Hjs Lordship charged
that iho evidence ugainst tliu prisoner
wus conclusive, and that his statement
uf previous injury and suspicions in no
wise justified the assault. The case
was given to the jury about 7 o'clock,
nud the court adjourned' for au hour.
Shortly after S the jury came in und
rendered a verdict of guilty on tho
second count—assault with intent t<
do grevtoua bodily harm. The prisoner
was sentenced to,ten years in tlw penitentiary from the present day, the sentence to be served concurrently with
tho previous one. Barry intimated that
if be were not better treated in future
he would repeat hts present offence,
and perhaps do worse. The prisoner
was then removed, and the jury discharged. Mr. Corbould (Corbould &
McColl) for the orown. The prisoner
wa? undefended.
The court adjourned about 0 o'clock
until 10 a. m. on Thursday.
Thursday, May S.
THE PERJURY CASE,
Court was called to ordor at 10 a, m.
The Queen vs. George McKeuziu, perjury, was brought on first. The indictment was then read, aud iu effect
was as follows: That the accused
(George McKeiizie) did, ou the 21st of
March, 1884, mako, before Wm. H.
Ladner, a false statement—knowing
the same to be falso (which statement
was corroborated by Win. McKee and
John MoKee, Jr.)—for the purpose
of obtaining a certiticutu of improve
ment on homestead, described as
southeast fractional quarter (contain-
hiji 88 acres), section 115, township 3,
in tho district of New Westminster.
Prisoner, through counsel, pb-udud not
guilty tu the indictment, Tho following jury was sworn; Geo. Gnodurd
(foicmati), Geo, Gray, Ed. McKi-ndrv,
Dsvid Nelmes, J, Devlin, Wm. Park-
ensoii, Leonard Norris^ Gordon Defoe,
George Good, John Johnston, $. W,
Barnes, nnd Win. Powers. A few
cluillongea were made on both sides,
tHB PROSKCUTION'
was' then opened by Mr. McCiill
(Corbould A MeCoIt). The learned counsel reminded the jury that,
although this wns one of the
lesser kind of offenses, the principles
which were at stake, affecting a largo
quantity of Und in this province, mat
tt one of tho most important cases that
could come before them. Mr. MeColl
read from the Crown Lands Aet, 1875,
and amendments of 1882 and last session, to enable the jury to underbuild
the law on the matter.
Charles Warwick, govt, agent and
assistant commissioner, was the first
witness called; he produced books-
certificate of pre-emption records, and
distriot register—containing entries affecting the case at issue
Cross-examined by Mr. Bolo: Wm.
McKee as agent fur George McKonzie,
came alone to mako application fur
certificate of improvement.
Hero a lengthy discussion ensued
between the bench .and counsel as to
the udmissability of evidence, on technical grouuds. It was finally decided
tu continue the case before tho court
on its own merits.
William H.Ladner, sworn,deposed:
know ' McKonzie intimately, as also
Wm. McKee and John McKee, Jr.;
have acted na justice uf the peace for
several years; was appointed us u provincial justice of lhe peace about 8 or
10 years ago; declaration was made
before him by Mr. George McKonzie,
on the 21st March; was in a great
hurry at the time, and did up the work
as quickly as possible. Geo. McKcu-
?.io signed in his own person, ro did
Wm, McMoe. John McKee. Jr. did
not. Win, McKee and Geo. MeKeu-
zio were present nt the time. Subsequent cross-examination by ihe bench
and counsel elicited the fact that Mr.
Ladner had signed thu declaration
merely as a witnuss, and not hi a judi-
uial, capacity.. '.

but at time of declaration worth about

Mr, Bole put Lhe witness through a
rigid cross-examination, which elicited
principally, that he was n sailor, hotel-
keeper, Buap-maker, boat-maker, fence-
maker, and farmer, according as opportunity - ottered, or circumstances
demanded; and that since 1877 he had
pretty effectually spread himself over
Mud Bay, Semiahmoo, Nanaimo, Victoria, Seattle and other places too numerous to mention,
Mr. AIcColl objected to anything
thut would lie detrimental to the credibility of witness
Mr. Hole continued the cross-examination, for some time endeavoring
-to show that witness was addicted to
lund jumping. Depositions made before magistrate were here introduced,
which caused considerable wrangling
between bench aud counsel. Witness
stated that lie would not have prosecuted fur perjury if tbey bad let him
have peaceable possession of the land.
Cross-examined by Mr. McColl:
everything was dono through Mr. Atkinson, his attorney; had a convent*
tion with Wm. H. Ladner, who came
pn behalf of McKenzie and offered
$300.. to leavo land, which witness refused; this was nbout the 3rd of April.
To Mr, Bole: Home children wen
within hearing distance, no que the
heard except himself and Ladner.
Elisha pjekard sworn; was e farmer;,
lived at Boundary Bay; knew the position of laud in dispute; lived about
half a mile from it, on tbe adjoining
section; havu lived there some three
years, and been at home pretty much
all the time—longest period of abstioe
2 months, in 1882; have known Geo.
McKenzie -for three years; am on good
terms with him; can see the land in
question from iny house, and to my
knowledge no one was in personal occupation, hor was any building nor
any fencing on the land before March
last; nor any improvements at all;
there was nu dyke un the land nor
ever has been; have had conversation
with McKonzie about his claim to this
land; nsked him if he was going to
move on to the place pretty soon, he
said, as Boon as possible; he asked mt
if I knew uf anybody going on to the
land for tbe purpose of jumping it;
told him I did not. This conversation
took place at Ladner's Landing.  '
Mr. Bole cross-questioned the witness in regard to benefits that wonld
accrue by dyking; witness had seen
cattle ana sheep belonging to Mr. Mc;
Keu on the laud; knew that McKenzie
was claiming the land all along; land
is only fit tor grazing purposes in its
unimproved condition.
To the court: havo lived upwards of
3 years ou tho present place; during
that time hnve spent an aggregate of
20 mouths at h»me; never saw anybody o\\ tliu contested ground before
March except to ride over it; saw thai
several times*
John W. Pickard sworn: am a brother to the last witness, and have livtd
with him _ for some yean; knew McKenzie add had frequently conversed
with him about the land; heard he had
offered to sell the place for850; offered
him 9100 for it soon afterwards; Mc-
Keiizio never pretended to have lived
on the lund.
To thu court: lived with his brother,
was generally at homo when his brother was absent; did not see anybody
continuously residing on the disputed
laud.
Charles Hunt sworn: live at Mud
Bay, frequently passed tho land ht
dispute; do not remember when McKenzie got his homestead entry; first
heard of it five or six years ago; took
uo interest in this dispute; there haa
never buen a house on tno place before
the first ot March, nor nny improvements; am ou good tonus with McKenzie; had n conversation with him,
about a yenr and a half ago; asked him
why he did not improve his land; ht
said ho did not know as he cared a
d—u for the land if the dyking scheme
did not go ahead.
Cross-examined by Mr. Bole: pretty late in the summer before land could
bo very dry; it wns subject to over-
flow, and would never be of muoh
value without a sea dyke,
This finished the evidence for tho
prosecution. A discussion arose between thu court and the crown prosecutor in relation to W. H. Ladner's
evidence, when ho was recalled and
stated that he had signed the declaration merely as a witness, and was not
aware that ho had administered an
oatn, The learned judge then said
that it would be useless to go on with
the defense for, although he had very
little doubt that the prosecution had
proved tlie offense, us a matter of fact,
yet on account of the failure of Mr.
Ladner to administer au oath in the
declaration, there could be no perjury;
and he would instruct the jury to give
a verdict of acquittul without leaving
their seals, which was done, and tbe
caso discharged. As the cases against
the McKces wure exactly in the same
condition, they were withdrawn. Mr.
McColl (Corbould & McColl)for prosecution, .Messrs. Bolo and Pooley for

but, owing to the prisoner's conduct in
Jail, ho was disposed to treat him with
considerable leniency, and would give
him only 10 years in the penitentiary,
with a prospect of getting a remittance
of that sentence if he continued to bohave well.
The court adjourned at half-past C
until 10 a. m. on Friday.
Friday, May 0.
THE CAUBUSO CARE.
Court opened at 10 a. m. The case of
Regina vs. Louts Miller was called, Thb
prisoner was charged with keeping a common gaming bouse In a room belonging
to John Mclnnes, in this city, where.lost
December, the unlawful game of studhorse poker was played, and large and
excessive sums of money staked. Prisoner, through bis counsel; pleaded uot
guilty. A jury was then impanneled ; a
great many challenges were made by the
crown, ana a few by the defense. Witnesses for the crown were placed hi a
separate room, by themselves, as were
alto tbe witnesses for the defense. Mr.
McColl opened the case for the crown.
He told the jury there were threo points
io bt considered, either out of which, If
proved, would be sufficient to convict
the prisoner: lit—If he had set up a
gaming bouse or room for the purpose of
gaining a livelihood ; 2d, If unlawful'
games had been played there; 3rd, If
there were any precautions taken against
policemen or detectives. TWs actio*
wu not taken under Canadian, but under two Knglish statutes.
John Mclnnes, sworn : Ban lived in
New Westminster for several years * was
keeping Union Hotel December laat;
knew Miller; rented him a room on loth
or 16th of December last; tbe bargain
was that he was to ban it until Christy
masfortoj the room ht reattd Miller
was a little houst by itself, on the other
side of the street from tkt hotel.
A discussion here ensued between tht
bench and tbe learned counsel regarding points of law. The chief
lustice showed that British Columbia
was a highly privileged country, having
among her laws all the latest English statutes, and when "Canada joined
British Colombia" and perceived hsr advantages in this respect, soma of thaaa
English statutes wen incorporated into
ihe Canadian law. His Lordship quoted
from statutes to show that any parson
found in a gaming house, and making a
full and free disclosure before a jtumot
or judge would get a certificate shielding
bim from dancer of future prtaeeutton.
Samuel Wilson, a fisherman, sworn,
testified that be knew Louis Millar; bad
known him for 7 or 8 months; knew him
in December but; knew the little room
near Union hotel; went then in company with Hogan about II o'clock in tlw
evening of December 25th; the door wu
to have lum'define thei lines; dectdul
to tak»- up tlm land, aud came to Now
Wi'stmiiwicr to obtain cprHHcftlQ from

10th March, purchased luuilter nntl
took it down on sloop for the purpose
of Imilding; put up rt temporary houso.
to move his family on the land as soon
as possible; on tho loth did move nn
to the hind, family consisted of wife,
self, and four children; Imd been there
over since continuously; on .the 17ih
of March last saw some pei-soiiB hanl-
inu posts uud distributing them along
present line of fence; did-not then
know who tho parties weie; on Thui-a-
day, 20th March, (hiding that thuy
continued to build fence, went across
to see who it wns, and found Mr, McKce, Sen., nnd a half-breed, iiailin-j ou
the rails; (leargo McKenzie wns nnt
there; on the 21st Mnreh thoy commenced putting up a small cabin—Mr,
McKee, Sr., and the smno l.nlf-brecd;
they put 40chains of fence; fonce consisted of stakes driven in ground 18
feet apart, nnd cedar rails or slats
about 18 feet long; a liko amount of
stakes have been driven in since 31st
March} did not  know  who did it;
QCEBN VS. t:hamih:klynk,
Ohaiubcrlyne was indicted on three
counts-for  wounding one Sue Lee,
nu the 10th of January last, at the
Cleveland Hotel, in this city, with in-
innt to murder, with intent tu do gre-
vioun bodily harm, with intent to disable, Tho prisoner, having no uoiiti-
Ht-I, was Instructed by ihe Judge
to plaid hot guilty. There wns a dispute between Ghamhei-lymi aiul the
Chinaitiau about a Tshiir, whmh both
claimed, nnd it ended in Cliumbcriyue
firing two shots fro u n revolver at Sue
Lee, ono nf whioh -u-ick him iu the
neck, inflicting a serious wound. Several »iiiii'nsi-h were called, ami the
--Sung uf ihd Shirt"rendered with va-
t-iutiirid. Tlit) loariiud Judge left the
cain i'i tip) hands of Iho jury to doter-
inhie on which count the prisoner wns
tpiilty. After un absence uf about nn
Inui', the jury returned a verdict of
iniilM mi tliu first --mint—assault with
inteii' t'i murder. The prisoner was
nsked if hu hail anything to say why
sentutiou should not be pa-wed, and he
made a lengthy statement, urging self-
defence as an excuse for bis crime, and
plodding for mercy. His Lordship said
that, under Iho eiministnm-rH, he felt
groat t-ompassiou for the prisoner, and
wmihl only sent onco him to 4 years iu
the penitentiary, whereas bo initrht
have sent him for life. Mr. Corbould
for ihe crown. Mr. Bole for private
pi'meoutuh
OjUKKN VS. .insKI'H OOHAS,
This prisoner wns also indicted on
throe ci-unts—assault with intent to
kill, wllh intent to do grievous bodily
harm, und intent todisablo. The victim was nn Indian named Kahatzie,
wlto had been considerably carved by a
knife in tho bands of the prisoner.
'I'ho prisoner, through his counsel Mr.
Uule,   plondod  guilty to cutting und
umling with intent to disable. Mr,
Dole showed the court that the prisoner
had already been in jail here 0 months
loclftdl Hogan knocked and the door *
opened; stud till S o'clock In the morning; saw Miliar then; a game of draw
poker wu being played for money, highest probable stakes f 15 or $16} largest
amount lout about 930; while witness
was than no other game wu played except draw poker; there wen gambling tables in the room; had helped Miller to oar-
ry a studhorse poker table from Stewart
k Cash's saloon to this room; a partition
which did not reach the ceiling divided
the room Into two; playing wu done In
, the innsr room; saloon business in tite
first room. Further questioning by th*
bench and Mr. Bole tended to corroborate this evidence,
James J. Brennan, sworn: Live in the
city sometimes; know Miller; bavo known
him since lut fall; know ths Union hotel
and also the small room near it on Front
strut; wu than in December; wu la tht
room twice altogether in succession; »w
Miller both Umts; WUsoa wu then tbe
lut time; know "stud-hone poker" then
tnd have played ft.
Mr. Bole obtested to evidence being
tirawn oat to prove that "stud-hone poker" wss an unlawful game, when it had
not yet been established that the game
wu played then.
The bench overruled the objection, on
the ground that ample evidence had already transpired to satisfy the jury that
unlawful gaming bad been carried on in
the room.
The witness, Brennan, assumed a bos-
tile attitude and would not give direct
answers to the crown prosecutor. The
chief justice told witness he would be
committed for contempt if he did not
give evidence in a different manner, depositions taken befon magistrate wen
produced by Mr. McColl, and conflicted
in some particulars with the evidence
just given.
John Wiggins, constable, wu sworn,
"edit
1 flu -a WMhd 9 months' Imp-Ham-
went unless sooner paid. The learned
jud-je ooumlimatited tho jury eu their
finding, and said thtt they deserved tha
gratitude of their fellow citizens.
Mr, McColl applied for and obtained
a certificate for tbe witneu Wilson for
tlie commendable manner in which he
had given evidence iti tht gambling cue.
This caw terminated tee business (at
3:30 p. in.) of the isiize in this city.

aud testifiedin respect of two persons—
ChuH. Jennings and Thos. Collins—who
were wanted as witnesses, but could not
be obtained,
Court adjourned for one hour. When it
resumed, at 2 o'clock, J. Curry, for the
defense, wu put in the box and testified
u follows) live in New Westminster;
am a bar-keeper; kuow the came called
stud-horse poker, have seen it played in
two different ways; know ths Union
hotel, and the little place on Front st.
marked "Union Bar;" learned stud-hone
poker within the last year, and understand it thoroughly, u played here;
witness then described the game; know
Louis Miller; am a friend of his.
This cloitd evidence-taking in the case.
A couaiderahlc amount of amusement
waa caused in court by questions and
comments of hunch aud counsel white
drawing out descriptions from tlie vari-
uuh wituenees of the fascinating game of
stud-horne poker. Cmmse! for crown
and priHoncr intimated that they liad
agreed to let the case go the jury without either of them delivering an address.
His I/n-Miili insisted that they should
both address the jury, which they did.
Mi. Bole, for the defense, told the
jury that the cose did not appear to
amount to a gnat deal in court; bo had
pointed out some legal matters where
the use had failed. In regard to mat-
ten of foot, -Mr. Bole »id the chatges
in' tho indictment- hod not been proved,
and that the jury muat acquit hii client.
Mr. McColl (Corlmuld k McColl), for
the crown: Every man ih to be considered innocent until proved guilty; prisoner must have the benefit of overy
reasonable doubt; prisoner haa had the
benefit of every objection and quibble
that ingenuity could possibly suggest; ft
was sufficient to show that the room
was kept for the purpose, whether any
game was proved to hnve been played
there or not; the prisoner should be convicted; stud-horse poker table in room
wta enough evidence to convict, u was
also tlie fact of the precautions taken
against discovery by the looking of the
door; the case was clear against the
prisoner.
The chief justice then brlfly charged
the jury; he wished to impress upon
them the necessity of coming to a serious judgment on this oue; wu glad to
find that the stakes were not very high;
to a certain class—working-men, clerks,
and the like—gambling was very demoralizing, and wu a greater factor for tvil
than even the saloons; many men have
fallen under this vice, only to swell the
unholy gains of the wretched gambler.
There was no doubt with regard to the
evidence of the house having been kept
for the purpose of gaming: that wu
sufficient evidence to prove that it wu
a common gaming house; oould not see
that the jury had any alternative but to
bring in a verdict of guilty.
Tie jury then retired and relumed in
flvt minutes with a verdict of guilty.
Prisoner (who appears to lie a Frenchman), on being asked if he had anything
to say, pleaded ignorance of the taw.
His Lordship thought that extremely
singular, aad sentenced tha prisoner to
thtB.UW. %«tl»el Ohuj.L».
don, sac. by Conn. Daniels, tbe resignation of Coun. Bowling was laid over till
next meeting. The followfcg bill wu
passed and ordered paid—O. D. Sweet,
assessor, ko., ISO. Council adjourned
till Monday, 9th June n«t, at 10 o'clock
Mr. T. C. Welle, Chemist aud Druggist, Port Colborns, Ont., writes: "Nor-
throp k Lyman's Vegetable Discovery
and Dyspeptic Cun bcus well, and gives
the best of utisfaction for all diseases of
tht blood." It never fails to root out all
diseases from the system, cures Dyspepsia, Liver CompUut, etc., purifies the
blood, and will make yon lout the picture of health and happiness..
John Hays, Credit P. O., says: "Hia
shoulder wu so lame for tine months
that he could not rates his hand to his
head, but by the uu of Dr. Thomu'
Eclectrie Oil the pain tnd lameness disappeared, and although three months
hu elapsed, he has not had an attack of
it since,"
Ko other preparation so concentrates
and combines blood-purifying, vitalizing,
enriching and invigorating-qualities as
Ayer's Sanaparitla. Quality should be
considered when making comparisons,

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
"Is it not? don't touch those coats,
please, no ono haa a knack of folding
t!iem but myself; vou may buckle up
the maud, if you like; yes, just think
of me doing tho South of France en
graiide Seigneur, with Babette and
Dominique in the rumble. They will
call me milord at the hotels, see it they
don't," and Dudley laughed merrily.
"Take care of yourself when I am
gone, Nellie, and write often, mind."
"If yon wish it," I replied, quietly.
The evident despondency of my tone
struck Dudley, for he raised hia eyes
from his work and looked at me.
"Why* what a white weary girl!
We have let you do too muoh to day,
with one thing and another. Go to
bed, darling; you must not show that
sad little face to-morrow."
"Oh, Dudley," I began, "I ahall
miss you ao," and then I fairly burst
out crying.
In a momeut he was beside me, and
holding me by the shoulders with firm,
kind hands.
"Nellie, mv dear child, hush, thia
will never do.
"I am io sorry," I answered, sobbing eihauitedly, "but I am so tired
and excited, and so very, very sad,
Dudley!"
He waa silent a moment, and then
relaxing hia hold, made me sit down,
and placed himself on the arm of the
chair, where I could rest my head
against him and be content.
"Nellie, do you remember what I
aaid to you on the day of my engage
ment}"
"Yes, every word."
"My dear he returned, very gravely, "what I said then, I say now—
nothing, not even my Eleanor's dear
love,can make you leu tome- -itis
impossible, it could not be; you are
what yuu must always he, my precious
little sister."
I ceased my tears to listen; hiB
words were ao strong and gentle, they
consoled ue.
"Wherever I am, and whatever I am
doing, I shall never cease thinking of
yuu and caring for your welfare. Tell
me, Nellie, can you trust me with your
future?"
I looked at him wonderingly.
"My future, Dudley V
"Yes, yours—it will be a very happy
one, dear, be assured, for I will guard
it welt. And now I want you to promise to obey me as faithfully as you have
ever dune; come, will you give ine
your word V
"Of course I will obey you, Dudley."
"Well, then, this is what I wish you
to do. You know what we have arranged about the Whalley visit 7"
"That' I' am to go home with Herwald."
"Yes; Loo is longing to have you,
and you must make acquaintance with
her boy. Bruce and Katie have promised to stay with you till you go—and
you are to remain at Hurst Hall till
our return."
"Till the beginning of October?"
"Yes, why not 1 no one wants you
here; at least," as I drooped my head
at his words, "I mean you have no
especial duty; Hal will be at sohool,
and little Maud—we must drop that
absurd Rill—will, of course, go with
you."
"But two months!" I continued,
dubiously—"such a long time, Dudley!"
"Not a bit of it; the socioty uf Loo
nnd her wonderful buy will make it
pass quickly enough; and then there
will bu riding with Herwald; and Hubert aud Milly, and Arthur, nnd Lucy,
and a host of friends will amuse you;
and when October comes, you will be
all fresh and bright to welcome us
home to the Priory,"
"And then?"
"And then there will be daily walks,
talks, and drives; and all the gossips
of the neighborhood will be unable to
determine whether Sunnyside or the
Priory be Nellie's home,"
I smiled, his attempt to cheer me
wu so kind and evident.
"Come, we must have no more tears;
you dun't know half the good things
that are in store for you. Remember,
you have intrusted me with vour future. But nuw it is late, ana I must
let you go. Good-night, and God bless
you, my darling sister.''
And holding mo fast to him for a
moment, he kissed me fondly, and
then I went.
■*#•#*»      *
Such a glorious morning; such a
shimmer and sparkle of light; auch
dewy freshness; suoh blue hazy skies;
such twittering and caroling of birds!
Over the wind blown gross lay dancing shadows, purple in the sunlight,
while the chirp of the grasshoppers,
and the aweet gossiping of the foliage,
made tiny music in the garden below.
Everywhere was brightness, beauty,
and the melody of song; while above
all came the chiming of bells—crashing
bells from the town steeple; melodious
bells from the village church, tinkling
bells, echoing alt day long from the
factory close at hand.
Excitement commenced early. Even
in the midst of quietly dressing myself
and Rill after our simple breakfast,
Haoot burst In to say that the townsfolk were already crowding the church,
and all the factory men, clad in their
best, were lining the road and path,
"and that it was a great secret, and
only Bruoe knew—but the gray horses
vera to be taken out, and twenty of
the men were to be harnessed in their
place, and draw the bride and bridegroom to the Priory."
"But, Halcot, there is nothing to
see. What are the peoplo crowding
the church for ?"
"Oh, I dun't know; a wedding is a
aedding I suppose, though it la.ever
so quiet. Make haste, do. I expect
they will be off directly; I will tell you
when the carriage comes round."
And, then came Herwald forward tu
have a button fastened on his glove,
and to carry off his "wee wifie," who
showed bar sash to him on the first
step, aud her little, resetted boots on
the second,
"Very pretty, indeed, Miss Rill-
very pretty indeed; now give me a
kiss."
"I'm Maud Edit," lisped the little
lady, smelling gingerly at her handkerchief, where a small modicum nf scent
had been placed, "Dudley aays Rill is
like a baby; I'm Maud Edit, Uncle
"You are an angel, remarked the
brother-in-law uncle, end snatched her
up in hie arms. "Now come and see
the pretty bouquets I have got for you
and slater." , ,      .   %t
And then came Dudley, looking
quite like himself, only handsomer,
and a little pale, with aome delicate
white flowers in hie button-hole, and
hisUfendergloyeeinhtoliands.
"Now I'm off, NsWsrHa-wsM *■
waiting for me. flow nice you look,
dear. Adieu, till we meet in the
church."
And then, with a long, lingering
glance at mo, tho little room, the garden, and the fields beyond, he went
off with a sweot, unsteady smile, and
left me to finish,
"Now, then," exclaimed Halcot,
throwing open the door, "are you not
ready ? the carriage has gone round to
the Priory. Take my arm, come. Oh,
you are all right; don't fuss—you look
as jolly as—aa"—here he failed for a
simile—"as the 'Undine' Seymour and
I are reading about. Come along-
bold tight. What are you shaking
for?" and seizing mo with his lion's
paw, he hurried me down-stairs.
"There, now, did I not tell you so ?
There see the men—look—what a jolly
lot; they're going to cheer. I say, shut
up, you fellows; it is not the bride,
and my young lady is going to faint."
"Bo quiot, my lad," responded
Bruce, with hia hand on the carriage-
door, and then he assisted me to alight,
and led me in, where Katie was standing in the porch in her soft, French
gray and pretty pink bonnet, waiting
for us, that we might walk up the aisle
together.
The wedding guests, such as there
were, were already assembled in tho
chancel; thero were very few, only
such as we felt otiliged to ask—Mrs,
Egerton aud Seymour, Dr. and Mrs,
Waldegrave, and old Mr. Stephenson,
Leaning on Bruce's arm, and listening to their soft-spoken congratulations seeing in the distance the mass
of faces filling up the nave, the Thorntons of course among them, a dim sense
of unreality fell upon me, and I almost
began to think it was a dream, when
Dudley came out of the vestry, followed by Herwald and ut the same moment Eleanor entered the church with
her appointed guardian for tho day,
Mr, Howard Tracy.
There was a rising bum and murmur
of admiration as she walked up the
aisle; but as if from afar he noticed
how she trembled and wavered, Dudley came down the ohancel-Bteps to
meet her, and took her up himself to
the altar.
She was very simply dressed, not
a jewel, not a flower, nothing to betray
the heiress, in her plain silk dress and
falling veil; but I thought I had never
seen such a noble-looking bride.
She looked very beautiful; not her
paleness, her agitation, or tho dimmed
luster of her eyes could detract in the
faintest degree trom her exceeding
loveliness; and Dudley—but I could
not look at him—I only heard his
words, and every tone of thut deep,
earnest voice sank into my heart.
It was soon over, incredibly soon it
seemed to me, trying ao hard to realize
what we were all about, and thinking
half the time of a foreign grave with a
withered wreath of immortelles hung
on its marble cross; and of another
little grave under the willow-tree yonder, with fresh roses clustering about
it, and lilies, and aweet lemon thyme;
with garden bees humming about it,
and the birds twittering in the grass
above, and all the pleasant sights and
Bounds that he loved when he was
alive,
And then it waa over; and raising
her long white veil, Dudley gave
Eleanor his first husband's kiss, and
then led her to me.
"Nellie, your sister."
And Eleanor's sweet luminous eyes
were moist with tears as I folded her
in my arms.
And then he took her away, and
presently we heard the sound of cheering, and the tramp of many feet; and
we knew they were carrying—thoso
lusty, loving men—their young master
and his bride to their home.
Tho crowd was so gnat that it seemed us if we should never clear thu
church-yard; and it was a relief when
Mv. Egerton placed me iu the carriage
by Katie's side, and We drove rapidly
off.
In a few minutes we had passed in
nt the lodge-gates, and the dark old
trees of the avenue closed in over us;
and then there was the open door of
the Priory, and Dudley standing there
with Dominique behind him.
"A kiss on the threshold, Sis.
There, you are mnde free of my house;
now come to Eleanor."
And still keening my hand, with a
cheerful nod at Katie, he took ine into
the bright, sunny drawing-room, where
we had seen Marion Vivian sitting under the shade of the ruby velvet curtains on our first visit there.
Eleanor was sitting there nuw looking quite simple and at home in her
fmre white dress, her veil and gloves
ying beside her, and her pets clustered round her feet.
The deadly paleness had left her,
and was replaced by a tender little
rose-flush, that deepened when any of
her guests addressed her by her new
name, or when she looked down upon
the tiny circlet on her hand.
Eleanor Mortimer, Dudley's wife—
oh, it was passing strange!
"Does not Dudley seem the right
man in the right place ?" said Herwald,
coming behind us. "He looks as if he
hod been master of the house for years,
standing on his own rug, with tho parson and doctor."
I smiled, and Eleanor glanced Up at
her husband proudly, and just then he
came towards her.
"Leonora, darling, I am going to
take you in to breakfast. Dominique
tells me there is no time to lose, Nellie, Mr. Egerton falls to your share;
mind you sit near us."
The breakfast was laid in the oak-
paneled dining-room, that I had once
compared to the aisle of a church; but
it looked less somber to-day, with the
sun streaming in un sparkling silver
and glass,
It was the ordinary wedding-breakfast, with no fuss or ceremony, no cutting of Cake, no speeches or health-
drinking, so Dudley had arranged:
with just a cheerful flow of conversation, whioh Herwald. and Bruce took
care should not flag; and at the end
of half an hour Eleanor rose, and at a
.sign from Dudley I followed.
"May I heln you, dear?" I nsked,
as we crossed the hall.
"If you will',"' she answered, and
then turned away, her eyes filling with
'team.
I knew what was in her heart; she
bad hoped that other hands would
have decked her on her wedding-day.
Passively she Buffered Babette nnd
me to put on her rich traveling dress,
and then, without glancing at herself,
she hurriedly crossed the room, and
passing through an opposite door closed
it after her. It was Marion's dressing-
room.
A low whistle in the, corridor summoned me, and 1 went out to Dudloy.
' 'Is Eleanor ready ? they are putting
the luggage on the carriage."
"She has gone in thero," I answered, pointing to the door; "I do not
like to disturb her."
"I am afraid you must, or we shall
lose our train. Please knock; it is far
better that she ihould not be left to
herself."
