NUMBER 23
In Sackcloth.
"Uiiiortii'iintrily I know no more
i about ilock building than I know
about aiirjtry,"—so sayi Mr. Walk-
tin now. He might witli aqiiil
truth. have put lam in tin place of
,''au'rgery," for he hai given the
country v.ry ample and costly proof
of .itow little ho know, about that.
"UnfortunAtely" for .the taxpayers,
tliu humble confession conies rather
late. Hia conduct up to a recent
'date ill comports with his present
humility. He did no' hesitate greedily to monopolise the two principal departments, gobbling up the
most important portfolios and throwing the empty ones to his colleagues,
very much as one would throw bare
bones to dogs. He does not appear
to have at all entertained such
humble Views of hia abilities as a
dock builder when undertaking to
remodel completely the apecilications
fidrawn up by the head Engineers in
England, arrogating to himself the
functions of sole judge and absolute
arbiter in respect of all question,
[that might arise us to the meaning
of plans aiid details of drawings and
specification*—questions demanding
the exercise of nice judgment nml
engineering skill. There were no
humble confessions of want of knowledge then. And when it came to
the giving out of the contract, involving an expediting which popular
opinion' put above half a million,
but which now threatens to exceed
a whole million, he did not hesitate
to take the responsibility, tlie criminal responsibility, of "going it
blind"—neither obtaining an estimate of how much it was going to
cost the country, from his double
staff of engineers, nor taking the
trouble to make one for himself,
Hunting with self-importance, lie
rushed in where—wiser meb would
have hesitated ; and now when standing before the public convicted of
having, through the most culpable
Wandering and astounding dareless-
'.ness, committed the country to a
ruinous undertaking, without haying
.exercised the most ordinary precautions, he first has recourse to tlie
cowardly expedient of castliii" the
ilame upon others, ami when that
tails he'tries the old sympathy dodge
land exclaims, "Unfortunately I know
{no more about dock building than I
[know about surgery." Indeed I Then
[why did he undertake it! We have
read somewhere of a family who
[were so lacking in energy cither for
;ood or evil that it was said that it
rould take three of them to commit
[a sin. The number which it took
;o do a righteous action we did not
[learn; but it is charitable to believe
hat audi an act might, by an effort,
[lie got through by two of thettt.
Hut here we have on. little fellow
ilaimiug: capacity to "rim" two de-
lartm.nta—law and works —without
mowing much about either t Said
cynical writer, "I have no practical knowledge of agriculture, but
diat need not interfere. You may have
tnoticed that the less I know about
a subject the more confidence I have,
[and tha more light 1 throw on it."
jAud so it was with our little Minis-
jter. Like ^Esop's frog, he swelled
ind puffed and wabbled, aud now we
tave a gloomy foreboding that a
lirailar end is ill store for him. But
what shall be the end of all thia
^outrageous folly and criminal mie-
lanagement to poor Columbia I The
|lock' Engineer has,' under instructions of the Committee, prepared a
irefnlly revised estimate, .which
irings the quantity of cement lip to
,757 tons, and a thoroughly com
itent Engineer, entirely discon-
lected with flodi and government,
las estjmated the quantity at seven
"nliaiik toils!I 'Where' shall tlie
Ind be l< And to make the matter
|ill more aggravating, it has tran-
hiretl' that the Canadian flovttm-
bent had actually offered to take
lie dock into their own hands, wlm-p
it ought to have been from the first,
engaging to complete it without any
expense whatever to the. Province,
and thus remove it from- tiie arena of
local politics and incompetency. But
do you think Walkem Would allow
that patronage to slip from his grain!
Having used the dock as'a political
hobby-horse so long, it waa not likely
that ho would willingly surrender
tlie political patronage involved in
the expenditure Of half a million-
lie will make it the rouijd million,
if permitted to remain in WHce. So
he carefully concealed tha splendid
offer of Canada, and went on with
his ruinous bungling, makjeig a work
which he solemnly pledged the Government would not cost the Province a dollar, drag it down to the
verge of bankruptcy ! That Minis-
tef outjht to be impeaclted. His abject
followers who have I acked him up
in this disastrous policy, especially
those of them representing Mainland
constituencies, are certainly to he
congratulated upon such magnificent
statesmanship as ia revealed hy the
evidence taken before the Committee. It would he a fittingyinctfe to
the political career uf these men if
they were to whitewash hiin now.

A year or more ngo a gate-post which
hud been painted with so-cnlled zinc-
white was noticed to appear black all
day, gray in the twilight And white1
during the night,, changing to black
again very soon after Rimi-ise. Mr. T.
Ia Phipsnn wns led to investigate this
singular ctlumeltirm property of the
paint, and after much research has
shown the cause tn exist in a new
metal, which lus been named aotinum
nn account of its peculiar actinic effects.
It is found iu zinc orci, aud resembles
/ine.
Attention has been called to some
new facts in relation th color-blindness.
Careful investigations have shown the
Chinese and the Nubians to be practically free from the defect. Dr. Roberts has observed flint color-blindness
is most common among persons of reddish or red hair, and it ii very prevalent among the Jews, who are the most
decidedly red-haired of all known races.
It is thought probable, therefore, that
tlitfe may be some correlation of colorblindness with pigmentation, and indirectly with facial pinuliiirities.
Sounds produce in certain individuals the impression of color, This curious phenomenon, which was first described by Nussbaumer in 187.1, lias
recently been made the subject of
systematic study by Herreu Bleulen
nnd Lehntann, of Zurich. They find
that the colors associated with different notes differ with the individuals,
being a* a rule light for high note* and
dark for low notes. Chords either
cause the colors which correspond to
their notes to appear to the mind aide
by side of give a mixture nf those
colors. The same note iu different
keys changM lri color, and to many
persons dmere'nt colors appear when
the same piece1 Is played by ditfiirent
instrumental Noises, as well as musical notes, arO aUcompMiied by colors,
vsrying with the intensity and pitch of
the sound. Of 606 inotviduala examined, one-eighth were "Ailnf-henr-
•rs." Four person* perceived sound
as a result of sensations of light and
color. A broad, qiiiutly-blirnitig gas
flame lad to tha twreeption iif a sound
formed of w and a liiht vortol like e;
but when tha flame flickered tlit sound
became that of I. These oalel can
generally be explained by an association of sounds with colors by tho
individual minds, and the phenomenon
is largely hereditary.

More Cement—Legal Aspect.
- It transpired the other day that
Mr. Walkem has, without consulting the Legislature, purchased another thousand tons of cement!
When asked hy the Committee under what authority lie had done
this, he said it was under t!.« legislative authority conferred by the
Graving Dock Act, 1879. That Act
consists of a single clause, and reads
as follows:—*'In the event of the
"Government of the Dominion of
'jCmiada carrying into effect the
."provisions of 37 Victoria, Chap.
"17, Section 1, Statutes of Canada,
"it shall be lawful for tbo Lieutenant-Governor in Council to award
"such contracts, construct such
"works and make such payments as
"may bt necessary in his discretion
"to secure the construction of tlie
"Graving Dock at Esquimalt." The
render will say that was an extraordinary power to place in the hands
of any Government, and more especially in tbe hands of suck a Government. And so it was. Sweeping,
unlimited power—power to expend
the whole revenue upon a work that
was to have stood on it own bottom—
was not to have taken a singly dollar
from the provincial exchequer. Surely there must be some key, some explanation. It is hardly conceivable
that even the present House would
be guilty of placing such a power in
the hands of the Government, There
is an explanation. The Dominion
statute referred to in the above recited Act provides for the payment
by the Canadian Government towards dock construction of the sum
of $250,000, tha said amount to be
paid upon the certificates of the Engineer from time to time us the work
progresses. The provincial Act
above recited was merely intended
to enable the work to he carried on
upon the basis nf the Canadian und
Imperial contributions, and was
never intended to confer power to
expend provincial revenue. A reference to the debates in the House at
the time clearly shows this to be
the case. Indeed, in introducing the
bill the Attorney-General himself
stated that to be the object of the
measure. And this view is confirmed by subsequent legislation. In the
very next session after tlie Act in
question was passed, the session of
1880, the Legislature was asked to
vote, nnd did vote, $3,400 for the
purchase of 100 tons of cement
which it was then supposed might be
required for the dock ; and again, in
the session of 1881, that money not
having been expended, and having
in the regular course lapsed, the
Government sought and obtained a
re-vote of the same, Now, can it be
supposed for a moment that if, as
Mr. Walkem now contends, there is
unlimited power of expenditure under the Act of 1879, the vote of $3,-
400 for the possible purchase of cement would have been asked for in
the two subsequent sessions 1 Such a
theory is altogether too absurd.
Thero was the Act conferring unlimited power of expenditure for
dock purposes, and if it was considered possible that a small quantity
of cement might be required in the
future, surely that contingency was
fully covered by that Act. Does not
the very fact of Mr. Walkem having
nsked the Legislature at these two
sessions for the vote of a comparatively insignificant sum to cover a
possible expenditure on dock account
tend to show that he was conscious
that the object and scope of the Act
of 1879 was confined to tbe expenditure of monies other than provincial—that he had no power thereunder to spend u dollar of provincial
revenue r But Mr. Walkem's statements before the Committee on ibis
point are contradictory. First he
broadly asserts that under the Act
of 1679 he has unlimited power of
expenditure, and that, in the exercise
of that power he has actually purchased another thousand tons of
cement. Then we find him, replying
to a question put by the Chairman
of the Committee, making a statement which, constructively at least,
overthrows his former contention and
upholds our theory.
Question:—Was not the Graving
Dock Act of 1879 brought in to enable
the Government to let contracts, con-
duet works,, and make payments on
dock account out of the Dominion sub
sidy of 8250,000, and out of that subsidy only]
Answer:—Tlie Act was passed to
give th* Government the power stated,
provided the Dominion would pay the
§250,000 as a gift and not as an advance. It was not contemplated then
that the coat of the dock would exceed
the subsidies from Canada and England.
If words have any meaning, that
is virtually an admission that the
Act of 1879 wes never intended to,
and doss not, confer jhjwty to expend provincial revenue Upon the
dock. Aud yet we find this man,
who in 1880 and 1881 came before
the House for a vote to cover the
purchase of one hundred tons of cement—thereby tacitly admitting the
absence of statutory power, now
Actually purchasing tone thousand tons
of cement, uud boldly claiming unlimited power of expending provincial
revenue without consent of the
House t That we find him contradicting himself and virtually admitting that he is wrong, constitutes
miserable consolation, when we see
our poor little revenue squandered
on hopeless undertakings, in violation of the constitution. The people
are anxiously watching their representatives to see how far they will
become party to ttuch ruinous and
unconstitutional foil v.

Editorial Notes.
The scales of justice would not appear to be very evenly held in this
country. A few days ago the Magistrate at Victoria sentenced a man to
six months' imprisonment with hard
labor, for common assault! About a
year ago a New Westminster Magistrate, for a more aggravated assault,
sentenced a man to pay a fine of one
dollar, without imprisonment! In the
opinion of the writer, these cases represent the two extremes. There is a
"happy medium," at wliich Magistrates would do well to aim.
The imposition by the Dominion
Government of a license charge upon
salmon fishing in the waters of this
Province will certainly have a tendency to strengthen our claim for an
appropriation for the establishment, of
a hatchery on the Lower Fraser. These
who have embarked their capital in
this industry would not grudge a moderate license fee, if they saw a proper
disposition on the part of the Federal
authorities to foster and protect the
fishing interests. It is to be hoped,
therefore, that, having determined
upon enforcing the license, the authorities will take immediate steps for
establishing a hatchery. Let the
sugar come along with the medicine.
Three missions to London, and twice
as many to Ottawa! The present administration has been chiefly distin
guislied for its missionary enterprise.
And what, has come of nil these missions? Nothing but expense and discredit and financial disaster, Each
mission was a brilliant success. Each
was distinguished by some wonderful
feat of diplomacy, the glamour of
which dazzled the eye* of duped taxpayers and imparted point and piquancy to the next Speech from the
Throne. The little Premier went to
London. And didn't he puff and
swagger when he came back I

"A little mouse" indeed. Egad! it
has developed into a great white elephant, which now threatens to eat up
the whole revenue, "pussy cat" and
all! Tho Agent-General of the Province and the two Premiers- -the
"mountain labored," and it would have
been well if nothing more harmful
than a "mouse" had been the result
The momentous question now .asked
by the country is, "What shall we do
with it'/" To whom shall we look for
a practical answer to that question 1
It is not any too soon for those more
directly interested to take preliminary
steps for having British Columbia well
represented at the great International
Fisheries Exhibition to be held in
London during the present year, We
an a long way offend it takes time to
arrange matters. British Columbia
will probably he the only colonial possession exhibiting canned salmon, and
an effort ought to be put forth to
make a good showing. An imposing
pyramid, conspicuously located, and,
after exhibition, a judicious placing of
the fish where they would do the most
good, would appear to us to promise
the best results. It is to be presumed
that Sir A. T. Gait would attend to
the matter there. Who shall take the
initial steps here 1 Perhaps the best
plan would be for tho Provincial Gov-
ernment to take the matter in hand;
but in such event, it should be under-
stoed that it will not be necesnary that
either Mr, DeCosmos or Mr. Walkem
should go to London. But, whatever
diversity of opinion may exist as to
the best mode of procedure, there can
be but one opinion as to the importance of Columbia Availing herself to
the fullest extent of so favorable an
opportunity to introduce her salmon
to the assembled world. It is precisely the opportunity to be desired,
and it is of the utmost importance
that it should not be lost.

THsCoFfBRDAMt—Mr. Walkem refuses all information to the House on
this work, on the ground that there is
ponding a suit against the Government for heavy damages in respect
thereof. The country may just as
well prepare to pay another cool fifty
thousand on that, for from what we
have been able to learn, the case is
pretty certain to go against this unlucky Province. Walkom, having excellent reasons for dreading tin; result,
kept the doors nf justice closed against
the contractors as long as he could.
A RisidENT Judge.—According to
the official correspondence laid before
the Legislature the other day, Mr.
Justice Gray ia still under orders to
take up his residence in the judicial
district of New Westminster. Since

conveying that order; the provincial
statute upon which1 it wan based .l,as
oeen declared by our Judges to Ho
ultra vires, and il is jjrobable that Judge
Gray is awaiting the result of that decision. We extremely regret the apparent reluctance of Mr. Gray to take
up his residence here.

The appearance of* Mr. and Mrs.

What Dobs He MbanT-TIu following occurs in the Standard's report
of the proceedings in tho Legislature
on Thursday:—"Hon. Mr. Walkem
took the opportunity to advise all the
gentlemen who had private hills under
tbeif consideration to push them forward as rapidly as possible as we were
at present in.an extraordinary position
from a legal point df view, and he
thought it would bo advisable" for them
to take advantage of any favorable
change."

Turned &<•£— The steamer Mi-
ance, Capt. Insley, started for up-river
porta on Saturday morning, taking a
goodly number of passengers. Upon
reaching Farr's LW/diini. it was found
that navigation was difficult, if riot
impossible, owing to ice and the extreme low stage of the water, and
Oapt, Insley very wisely turned hack,
the passengers, &c, having been sent
forward by canoes. Hemming, the
Riliitnce took on at Chilliwhack a band
of cattle (45 head) belonging to Mr.
C. Henk, arriving here during Sunday
night. This result is very disappointing, as both freight and passengers
have been awaiting for some time the
running W thu rivor steamer!,
More Damaoks.—The supply of
cement at the graving dock works
gave uut on the 4th inst. On the 6th
inst. (Sunday) Mr. Walkem and his
staff shipped round from Victoria a
Quantity which had just arrived from
San Francisco by the mail steamer,
hut inasmuch as, according to the
terms of specifications, it must bo on
Ihe ground one month before" being
used, tlie contractors will have an undoubted claim for damages, and it
would appear from the evidence of
their engineer before the dock committee that ttiey mean to have it

of tho 1st inst. says;—" Andrew Onderdonk, of California, who was awarded

fares were paid, and they are guaranteed
three years' steady fafeor'n't tHree dollars

are the right class of men to help to
build up a new country,"
''Never !"—Sir. Farewell; Engineer for the dock contractors, wss before the Committee last week'- Mr.
Helgeseri,* who Is apparently very
anxious to help Mr. Walkem out of
the cemei/f txltm, asked Mr. Farwelt
how 1-inj*! he' tfi ought, it would take to
complete the1 ttork at the present rate
of progress} ttf.wMoli Mr. Farewell
promptly replied:—''It will never be
tinislied at all, taking into (Consideration that the enntractuif- •%■ out of

point, he was told plainly that the
only detention had arisen from insufficient supply of cement by the Government. And yet Mr. Walkem has
been blustering and threatening to
take the work out of the hands of the
contractors Ucause such slow progress
has been model
Barbarous.—Tho iii'tainf Anffnef

of the disgraceful manner in which the
body of poor Peter Johnson wdl
hawked about'at a scarecrow, and* the
other from above Tunnel City, relative
to the disposal of another unfortunate
man's leg—said to have been ordered
by the "Superintendent" to be "pitched
into the Fraser." We can hardly
orodit that the inhumanity charged in
these letters could be done by any

On the 28th ult. an important meeting was held iu London in furtherance
of the great international fisheries exhibition to he held during the present
year. The Prince of Wales presided.
The Duke of Edinburgh; Prince Teck*
Lord Granville; Eorl Kitilbertey* Sir
Vernon Hnrcodftj Lord Salisbury anil
Sir Stafford Nilrthcote were present.
Sir A. T. Gait, in seconding a resolution ihdved by Earl Kitnuer'ley. that
it was d-Jsirable to secure the support
of the celonies in the exhibition, laid
that he had the authority of the Government of the Dominion aud Newfoundland lo express1 their hearty
desire tu cooperate. If there was nue
part of the* empire indl'd than nnother
which felt an interest in the proceedings and was grateful for the Prince's
support it was certainly Canada. The
modes of fishing in Canada are tlie
crudest, and therefore tho exhibition
would he peculiarly valuable to them.
He had received a message from Sir
John Macdijiitild authorizing him to
subscribe £000 to the general prize
fund. His rtmarks wore loudly
cheered. The London Standard, in
an article speaking of the great success of fish-breeding vstablishmmits in
Canada, says:-7 "Well may Samuel
Wilmot be proud of such results, for
they are due to his initiative* enterprise."

KITH AND KIN.
(Continued.)
His letter this morning was a pungent one. He had written it, on the
Thursday night hefore, in a bitter
mood, and the bitterness canio out
very clearly in the composition. He
had made a point-of investigating the
proceedings and, system at several denominational, schools, and had collected some significant facts, which he
had used with considerable cleverness
to bring a good deal of discredit on
tho clerical nnd denominational party.
"I shall be pelted to death for this,
in to-morrow morning's issue,1' lie reflected, looking cynically pleased.
"Holloa! Hero's a leader on my precious effusion, What has it got to
say?"
He had just begun te read, but was
interrupted hy a call of:
"Mr. Aglionby!"
He looked up and saw one of the
principals of the firm entering the
room—and behind him another figure.
Agliuuby, felt slightly bewildered, but
not very much surprised, when he
recognised the choleric-looking old
gentleman of the Liberal Demonstration and the play, on Saturday after-
imon and evening.
''The third time of meeting!" lie
reflected. "Kismet! The will of
Allah be done!"
He stood silent, while his glance
wandered beyond both tho men, to tho
doorway, and the beyond which was
-risible through it. Blank space.
Neither n hat with a brim, nor yet
one without; nothing but the remembrance of a pair of deep-set gray eyes,
a -pale face; and a steadfast-looking
mouth; J
"Mr. Aglionby!'' was repeated.
"Yes," lie answered, as he laid down
Ins paper nnd advanced a step.
"I think you are at liberty just
now."
"There are no customers here at
the moment," he replied.
"Then be good enough to take this
gentleman round tlie premises. He
is interested in our arrangements, so
you will explain thein to him as clearly
as you can, and give him all the information he desires."
Then with n bland smile, Mr. Jon-
kinson, tlie Benior partner of tho firm
of Jeiikiuson, Sharp and Company,
excused himself ou tho plea of a pressing engagement at that very hour,
from going further with them, and
they were left alone together,
Aglionby, turning to tlio old gentleman, saw that he was regarding him
with an intense fixity of expression
which had in it something almost fierce,
and which called forth at once the
young nun's readily aroused sense of
the ludicrous.
"Perhaps you would like to begin
at the beginning f he suggested; and
the old man, meeting his eyes, and
hearing his voice, most certainly started, and changed countenance.
"As you like—I doii't care," he
muttered, still continuing to gaze at
his guide.
"Then come this way," said the lat-
tee, conscientiously carrying out his
directions. The visitor followed him,
nnd Aglionby explained everything to
him very clearly, but very soon came
to the conclusion that his i rouble was
wasted, for so absent-minded a man,
he thought, he had never seen. Merely
glancing at ull the things he was shown,
he kept his eyes still persistently fixed
upon the face of his guide, occasionally giving utterance to a "Humph!"
when it appeared necessary to say something, but evidently feeling but scant
interest in the vast stock and complicated business system of Messrs. Jeiikiuson and Sharp.
At last they found themselves back
in the sale-room. Aglionby remarked:
"I think you have seen everything
now." (This was a mere figure of
speech, for he was convinced that the
strange old man had perceived little or
nothing of it all.) "Do you wish to
see Mr. Jenkinson again, or shall I
show you put r
"I should like a few words with
you," was the reply, unexpected but
hardly surprising after his peculiar
behavior. "If we can be alone, that
is. I should like to ask you a few
questions."   e
"Perhaps I may not he disposed to
answer them," remarked Aglionby a
little dryly.
"Perhaps not, hut I rather think
you will. At any rate you might us
well hear what they are."
Aglionby -/lanced around. It was
the dinner hour, end there was no one
in the sale-room but themselves and a
boy, the boy to whom he had given
half a crown for keeping his place at
the masting on Saturday. This youth
was undoing a blue handkerchief containing two slices of bread and butter,
and a bottle of cold tea—his dinner.
"Bub, just clear out, will you, and
get your dinner somewhere else," laid
Aglionby good-naturedly. The lad
raised a pale, delicately-sensitive face,
smiled, and picking up his little bundle, departed.
"Now we are alone," observed Aglionby, propping himself up against a
mountain of "goods," and sticking his
hands into his pockets. The old gentleman seated himself on a solitary,
wooden - bottomed chair, folded his
hands on the top of his stout walking
stick, and said:
"I wish to know your name."
"My name is Bernard Aglionby,"
replied Aglionby, lifting his head a
little, with conscious pride.
"I thought so!" burst from tho old
man's lips, as he struck his stick upon
tha ground; and Aglionby, gazing at
him fixedly, felt a strange sensation
stirring nt his heart. A rush of vague
recollections —memories strange and
potent, partaking both of sweetness
and bitterness, came surging up in tin
inind. Whose spirit was it that looked
at hiin through those frosty blue eyes ?
The pause that followed the last words
wns a long one. Aglionby waited
almost breathlessly for the next question. When it cam* it did not surprise him—now.
"Did you ever hoar of a place in
Yorkshire   called   Yortiett-in-Danes-
dale?" .,    ,     ,
Aglionby  glanced  at him keenly,
searchlngly, and saw that he wns agitated.    Then he replied, curtly enough, "Yes."
"Were you over there.
"No;"
"Ah! Never there!" He looked
with an indescribable mixture of expression at Aglionby, and went on
slowly:
"Perhaps you've also heard of a
house called Scar Feot, not a hundred
miles from Yoresett?"
"I have."
"And ef one John Aglionby, who
lives there?" he said, and his tones
vibrated, while the glance he fixed
upon his interlocutor was a strange
compound of defiance and anxiety.
"I've heard of him too," replied the
young man, his face darkening.
"You have! Well, here he is—I
am he."
He tapped his broad chest with his
strong forefinger, and a rush of color
covered his face, while hia eyes were
fixed even more intently and more
eagerly upon tho other's face. Aglionby looked at him, his own ooun-
teuanco, so strong a contrast to that of
his companion, set in a gravity whicli
amounted to sternness. There was no
sarcasm in liis eyes now, and no malice
upon his lips. He bore little likeness
to the hale-looking old man, with hie
white hair, his ruddy, full faco, and
yet there was, as one looked at them,
a something- -a flavor of expression
perhaps, a similarity in the way in
which their lips closed one upon the
other*
"I am he," he said again. "lam
your grandfather, lad. I!"
"I knew you must be, as soon as
you spoke of Yoresett and Scar Foot,"
said the other gravely.    "Well ?"
"Well! Have you no word to say
to me ? The nearest relation you have
in the world!"
"What should I have to say to you 1
Nothing agreeable, surely."
"And why not 'I What injury have
I ever done you 't"1
"That is an odd question," said Aglionby, shrugging his shoulders. "You
turned my father out of doors, and
disinherited him when he married my
mother, and when you might have been
reconciled with her, how did you treat
her ?"
"How did she treat me?" put in
Mr. Aglionby, hastily and wrathfully.
"What a question! Was she to
tamely submit to insults? As for me,
you have ignored me from the hour of
my birth to the present one, except
once, when you proposed to do me a
deadly injury. My mother treated
that effort of yours as it deserved to
bo treated."
"This to mc!   From you—from own
grand bo u "
"Pardon mo, but I cun bs no grandson of yours, for you disowned my
father for marrying my mother—and
when you might have atoned for my
father's death, you only pursued an
innocent woman with your vindictive
hatred and revenge, in asking her to
separate herself from her child—from
the child she had bprnfl in trouble und
adversity—her only comfort, if o poor
one.    A grandson of yours—no!"
Aglionby the elder was quivering
with wrath and emotion. He shook
his stick menacingly within nu inch of
Bernard's face, The latter smiled
slightly, drew his hands from his
pockets, aud folded his arms.
*'I suppose that is your view of the
case," said the old man. "I say, that
your father was my all—and that he
broke my heart."
"You look as if your heart had been
broken long ngo!'' retorted Bernard
skeptically.
"Ho refused even for ono instant to
look at the woman whom I wished him
to marry."
"Englishmen generally choose their
wives for themselves, and my father
just did what you had before him, and
what I have done after him," said Aglionby, quite convinced that he stated
au undeniable fact.
"What!   You ure married 1"
"No, I'm only engaged to be."
"Bah!   I say an only son has no
right to choose indiscriminately. There
is policy to be considered, and family
interests.   When your father scoffed
at   Marion Arkemlale, and took up
with "
"Stop, if you please. You aro
speaking of my mother. One whisper
that savers of disrespect to her, nnd I
leave you ou the instant. Indeed, I
must decline to discuss her at all
with you, in any way."
Mr. Aglionby chafed under this
curb, but nothing in Bernard's manner encouraged him to continue the
subject. He bit his lips, and drew his
brows together, looking the young
man over, from the crown of his sombre, shadowy locks, down to the arched
instep of his long, Blender foot,
"Why are you called Bernard ?'' he
asked.    "It's no name in our family."
"My mother's name was Bernarda;
and her father's before Iter was Bernard; mine is the same.*'
"And you have no other 1 Nn John,
for instance, nor linger, nor Ralph?''
"None but Bernard."
"Why not John Bernard ?   It would
be a fine name!"
"I don't suppose John sounded well
iu the ears of those who gave me my
name."
"Then, when your mother—no, I'm
not going to discus* her; don't be
afraid—when she told you how she had
decided your destiny for ynu—did you
feel content with her decision ?"
"Perfectly—why not)"
"Tell me what she said about ine.
Did she teach you to hate me ?"
"No. I remember it well. I was
about six years old, and I was learning
my lessons iu my mother's room. She
had boen down stairs, but presently
cams up again, looking pale und determined. She came up to me, aud
took me up in her strong arms, and
kissed me often, and asked me if I
would like to go away from her and
live with some one else I I cried out
'No.' Not if I had toys and sweets,
she said, and a pony, and a beautiful
home! 'And you, mother,' I answered.
'No, not me, my boy,' I bawled out
lustily that I would not go; and she
kissed mo with a kind of wild passion,
and called mc her lion-hearted boy.
