The Fraser Montli.
The Fraser river is the only important water way in British Columbia, and it is one of the largest
rivers in Oaiuulit. Jt is the natural
routo by .whicli the interior of British, Oolumbia is reached, and it
passes through a valley where is
found u large tract o£ the finest agr
cultural land in the province. It is
liy the Fraser river that the mainland hus hitherto been supplied from
tlie outside world, and by the sumo
avonue a great portion of it will
always be supplied. When the 0.
P.B. has been completed, the routes
; of trade will undergo great elianges.
Supplies will to a great extent conn
over the Canadian railway from
eastern Canada. But thero will al
ways lie a large traffic from the Pacific Ocean to this province, and
much of thnt traffic will continue to
bo carried on the waters of our great
river. In consequence of the position and importance of the Fraser
upon its banks have grown up many
important interests. Tliere aro 111
salmon canneries on tlie river, with
an invested capital of about $250,-
000, and giving employment to a
large number of men and boats.
Abut 15 miles from the mouth of
the river is situated tlie city of New
Westminster. In population and
commercial importance it is the second city in the province, and is
naturally the distributing point and
port of entry for tlie mainland.
Above New Westminster for 100
miles there aro numerous settlements und villages whicli are the
centres of most important industries. Now, the importance of tlie
Fraser Hirer as a public highway
und as the centre of growing industries is not becoming less. Indeed,
as this district becomes settled, and.
its resources developed, the trade
carried over the bosom of the Fraser
must increase. The railway to some
extent follows tlie north bunk of the
river; but it so happens that on the
BOllth side a large majority of the
* inhabitants have been located, and
those cannot, lie conveniently served
hy the railway. In view of tliese
facts it seems strange that the Dominion government has manifested
so little concern for the condition of
the Fraser mouth. It has lieen generally lieltoved tlmt the expenditure
of a moderate sum of money would
secure a safe and commodious entrance to the river, sufficient for all
classes of shipping. But, notwithstanding frequent suggestions and
recommendations in tiuu direction,
no plan has yet been adopted. The
condition of tho channel through
the sands at the mouth of the liver
lias been very unsatisfactory, it
lius several times shifted, and on
these occasions the buoys hnve not
been replaced with the promptness
which tho circumstances required,
The shifting of the channel has
sometimes deceived mariners respecting its true nature, anil the character of the navigation of Frasei* river
has been greatly misrepresented.
Last year Oapt. Grant went down
witli the snag boat Samson to inves-
gate tho mouth, aud discovered that
a new channel had been made
through tlie sunds from Point Garry
almost straight to deep water. This
channel was thoroughly examined
both by Oapt Grant nnd Capt,
Devereux, of the marine department. It was found to bn well defined, and to contain il feet, of water
at low tide. After having marked
out tlio channel, Capt. Grant spent
««..._ -I..J.- >iM,t00tH0 if wiili n Inrtra
snag, nnd in this wny he deepened
it to 10,\ feet. Recently Gapt,( Irnnt
has been making another examination, with results tliat are remarl;-
able and most important. Me finds
tlmt tho channel bus beeu growing
deeper and deeper sinco he left it
last year, through the natural action
of the current. In the shallowest
place, where ho loft 10A feet of
water he now finds 12,1 feet. Outside of this shoal the channel shows
" fathoms, which is '2\ fathoms
more than it showed lust yenr! Tin:
channel, therefore, through which
the rivor is entered, is now 12,1 feet
at its shoal est point at low water, aiid
over 20 feet lit high water. Tt, is
also found that the old channel has
lieen slowly filling up with sediment,
and this hns diverted a larger body
of water to the new channel. From
a careful'examination of this new
channel both Oapt. Grant aud Oapt
Dcvereux are of opinion that it will
become permanent. After striking
the right bank at Point Garry, the
waters of the Fraser liave been deflected in a southerly direction, finally entering deep water south of tho
lighthouse, through the old ehannel.
But (he continued force of the water
on Point Garry seems to have worn
away part of the point and permitted the river to pursue a straight
course. Point Garry has undoubtedly been worn away to a certain
extent, and the obstruction having
been removed, it is not unreasonable
to expect that the bulk of the water
will now continue to flow in this
direction aud that the present channel will, therefore, remain permanently. Iu order that it ■ may be
deepened sufficiently to admit ships
of any tonnage-, Capt. Grant proposes that the old channel bu blocked
up. This would throw such an additional quantity of wnter into the
new channel as would, in his opinion, rapidly increase its depth and
width until it would admit vessels
of all classes. The cost would bo
comparatively small, and the advantage to the country would be beyond computation. We hope our
representatives at Ottuwn will concern themselves in this scheme,
which is entirely reasonable and
feasible, and press it upon the Dominion government's immediate attention. Their bands might be
greatly strengthened if the board
of trade in this city would enquire
into the matter and send an official
report to Ottawa. In the mean
time Capt. Grant should be allowed
to continue dragging the new channel until tlie other scheme can bo
carried into eft'ect
Summer's Claims.
On Wednesday we referred briefly
to the report of the squatters' claims
committee and some of tlie circumstances by which theso claims are
surrounded, Tlio more the evidence
taken before the committee is studied and compared with the committee's report, the more impossible
it seems to reconcile the report with
a belief that tho committee wns possessed of a clear comprehension of
its responsibilities. Some of the
claims rested upon the purchase of
certain Indian titles. It is claimed
that two Indians known as Jim and.
Charley had lived on certain lands
nenr English Bay for a groat number of years. Samuel Greer entered
into negotiations with these two Indians to buy them out with the object of acquiring their lands, and
liuully did purcWu them, J. M.
JI. Spinks purchased the rights of
two* other Indians iu the same settlement. Spinks sold his title to
flueh Mel tonald, who seems to have
formed a syndicate composed of
himself and A.A.Green. T.B.Humphreys, J. B. Hendorson, and J. P.
Walls so as to press the matter upon
the legislature. In his evidence
Greer makes the following statements: "The Indian agent told mo
the Indians had a title. There had
been white men ejected by the In '
dian ngent. He told me he would
not allow any person to interfere
with me." Nov wo have seen Mr.
McTierimn, the Indian agent, and
he distinctly asserts that EVERT
STATEMENT we havo quoted
from Mr. Greer's evidence is an
UNQUALIimSD FALESHOOD!
Among other documents handed iu
as evidence in tliese claims was what
purports to be a conveyance of the
interest and rights of the Indians
Charley and Jim to Spinks, This
conveyance states thut it, was mnde
through "P. McTiernan, Indian
agent," It is signed by Charley
and Jim, and bears this endorse
ment: "Signed, sealed nnd delivered
iu the presence of P. McTievnnii."
Tu its report the committeo snys:
"The Indian ngent, Mr. MoTioman,
appears to have assvmed to hnve
authorit* <> sanet.on, and to ha\e
approved,'lie ule bythe Indians,
and to havo stated tliat ho would
assist officially in maintaining the
right of Spinks' grantors against
them." In consideration of this
official action of the ugent the com-
mittoni'o«o-»:-«»>d« i1.ul.1h1..... I...,.„f|
upon this Indian trunsfer to the
favorable consideration nf the house.
We have shown Mr. McTiernan the
trunsfer from the Indiana to Spinks,
produced as evidence of title; AND
HE PRONOUNCES IT A KOltfJ-
ERYI Ho declares thut he never
saw or signed it, aud that he never
saw the Indian Jim whose signature
he is said to hnvo witnessed ! When
we say that this very document, aud
Air. McTieriinn's official connection
with it, lire made the sole ground
upon whieh tho committee recommends the claim of Messrs. Walls,
Green, Humphreys and Henderson,
it wiU be seen how utterly indefensible these claims are. Mr. McTiernan 's statement completely
knocks the bottom out of the claim,
and shows that, from imperfect
knowledge, the committee recommended the houso to recognize and
reward a monstrous swindle. Ilie
committee's report continues:
"Tliere is evidence before your committee to show that Indians havo
sold such rights as they possess to
white men, and tlie continued possession of the .whites afterwards
points to the conclusion that such
sales have uoeeived recognition."
We cannot see how such a conclusion could fairly bo reached, The
Indians have been accustomed to
sell their improvements, such as
houses, etc., but surely the committee cannot protend that such a sale
carries with it any title to the land.
The undisturbed possession proves
nothing nt all. A man might squnt
upon one's farm and lie allowed to
remain there undisturbed for many
yenrs simply because ho was doing
no hiirm nnd that part of the property was not required for other purposes. But* so soon us it was required he would have to louvc,*aud
his continued occupation would constitute no claim. Willi respect to
the claims of Messrs. Steer, Stewart
and Matheson, the committee reports that these men "quite properly
applied to the immigration agent
(Mr.'Ross) for information, and
have been by him un intentionally
misled ns to their right to locate
upon the lands in question." It
therefore, recommended thnt tho
claims be favorably consideivd.
The ground upon which the committee concludes that Mr. Ross had
"unintentionally misled"theso squatters wo cannot enter upon now, but
we shall refer to it at another time.
■Mr, McTiernan having denied the
authenticity of the Indian conveyance, the only remaining chums
which the committee' really consider
valid aro those for wliich it makes
Mr, Ross responsible. As an officer
of the government he certainly acted
with a want of caution whieh makes
him responsible, and justifies the
assertion that through liis blunder
the country will suffer great loss.
TllE Columbian has maintained
thnt tho claims of these squntters
should never lmvo come hefore a
committee at all, and the justice of
that contention must now appear
sufficiently apparent. If the matter
had gono into the courts instead of
tlie legislature, the evidence of Mr.
Greer and the bogus Indian transfer
would have been exposed in time
to, arrest an unjust verdict. But
the committee does not seem to have
exercised ordinary discrimination,
and its report is so ambiguous that
we doubt if any person could with
certainty interpret its recommendations.

hablUnt, of British Columbia, that

MR. F. CRAKE,
For a number of yean manager of tho
Watchmaking and Repairing Department of Messrs. Savage, Lyman k Co,,
of Montreal, They say of him that he
li one of the very best workmen over in
their employ, ami thoy part with him
with regret, which Is a suliicient guarantee ol hu ability. I have spared neither
trouble nor expense to got one of the
ablest men, and X am determined to
make my business second to none in
British Columbia. Mr. Crako will have
entire charge of tho Wateh department.
Chronometers Repeater*, Ghrono-
graphl, and all complicated watches
rated and adjusted, Broken or lost parts
made equal to new, Auy parties huving
Watches whieh have been in the bunds
of incompetent Watchmakers and ain't
be made to go, send them to me, pneked
in a small box, by mail, registered or
otherwise, and they will have my immediate attention; and porfect satisfaction
will be given.
The manufacturing Jewelry is under
my personal charge. All kinds of Jewelry made to order and the quality of the
goods guaranteed. Diamonds nml pie-
ulous stones set with care. All my
charges are moderate. I have a now and
well-selected stook of WfttVhOH, Olockft,
field, Silver and Boiled Plate Jewelry and Plated Ware, nil of the best
quality. New pattern constantly arriving.
All Watches sold wilt bo closely regulated to a few seconds a month, thus dying away with tho annoyuuee of having
an imperfect time-kcopor.

' Tho Guardian professos to havo little

The Bishop of New Westininstur

It is wise to provide against emergencies that are liable to arise in overy
family. A oold may be a dangerous
thing, or uot, depending upon tho means
at hand to combat it. In audden attacks
of cold, croup, asthma, etc., Ayor'sCher-
ry Pectoral will prove tho quickest and
mest effective cure, and your best friend.
It is said that the slides on tbo railway track nenr Hope cannot bo removed for a week yet, nnd in the mean

that this is a piece of (be rond whieh
it pronounced finished.
Now that steamers nro running regularly up river, would it not bo a proper thing to send the mails by Bteamer
for places on Ihe south side of the
river at least ? The people in those
settlements have suffered enough in
irregular mails during tho winter, and
relief should be afforded. The cost
would bn very small, and the matter
oould bu loft entirely in the hands of
tho eity postmaster.

Tblkohai'HY.— Tjie new cable laid
by Ihe Dominion government a fow

connecting Victoria with tile-American

Freak oi* Nature.*—A correspondent writing from Clinton says: "A
most remarkable freak of naturo was
exhibited here to-day by Mr, Juan
Brunei. Ho had a heifer about two-
and-n-half years old which gave birth
prematurely to whnt mny lie called
twin calvos. But, with tlio exception
of the body, these creatures show uo
rosemblance to tbo bovine spotios at
nil. The heads uud necks are distinctly
those of the horso, nnd tho hoofs are
perfectly formed. Both are males,
about a foot long, and they would

Tun LioiiTitoi'sE Boat.—Lnst weok
we mention d that a boat had been
found on Ti ada island with part of a
body tied to it, Acting upon instructions from tho government, Constable
Miller chartered fho Btr, Senator and
wont to tho inland to investigate. The
boat was identified us the one belonging to (he saudlieads lighthouse from
which three men wore drownod last
fall. Tho remains were beyond recognition. The boat and remains
wore brought to Granville ou Wednesday. It is probable that these remains
woro those of tho half-breed who aoted
as assistant lighthousu keeper. It will
be remembered that the remains of
one of the Frasers wore found InH full
at, Point Roberts, and a vest belonging to tho brother. It is not likely
tho vest would go tu Point Roberts
when the body went to Texada island.
The finding of the beut is probably
the last act in this sorrowful affair,

was lengthy and varied.' The performers displayed marked ability, nnd elicited well-deserved applause from the audience. The children sang tho opening piece,. "Glory to God iu tho Highest," nnd after this a prologue was rend
by Mr. J. F. Smith. Miss Carrie Magee recited, m very good style,' "Curfew will not ring to-night." Mrs.Eidlen
played a few tine selections and sang
sovoral Bongs. Mrs. Eidlen is n graduate in singing and plays and sings
woll, Mra. Adams ou organ, Mr. W,
M. Brown ou violin, and Mr. Mcln
tyn-on cornet, cavo two splendid instrumental pieces. Mrs. Adams gace,
in her beautiful style, two swigs,

pretty duet, " The moonlight night

"Dennis and tho owel,"nnd in the second part an excellent extrnct from a

singular knack of mingling the agreeable with the useful. Florence and
Mable Chenhall sang "Little brown

promising vocalists. Mrs. Ehalt recited "The Inventor's wife," and nothing could bo moro natural than hur
rendering of this piece. It was unquestionably well done. Dr. Oflerh'aus
sang "Sergeant Nibs" in character,and
also a duet with Mrs, Eiden, "There's

slight the children, with their busy
braiiiH, their unbounded energy, and
their very definite opinions. The wholo
temperance, question is to be decided by
public opinion, and the education of tho
■child to-day will govern the action of
tlie mnn in years to come. Our bands of
hope are workshops in whieh we are
moulding character; and we hope tliat
from those bauds of hope will come men
and women who will throw all the
weight of their influence upon the aide
of temperance, Tlieir purpose is not
only to have the young peoplo of our
day pledged to total abstinence from all
that intoxicates, but to so instruct them
that they will be ablo to meet and answer all those petty sophistries by wliich
the liquor trade is defended. We wsnt
not only to fill their hearts with pity for
the Buffering victims of the drink curse;
but to fill their minds with solid facts in
regard to the nature nnd effects of alcohol in all its forms Zeal without knowledge will nover accomplish much. We
base our hopes for the future upon an
enlightened temperance sentiment growing out of a thorough understanding of
tho aubject in all ltd phases. Our Sumas hand of hope ia yet in its infancy,
and of course like all such undertakings
has had some discouragements. ' One
drawback has been tho want of an instrument, but this hindrance we aro glad
to say is removed hy tho purchaso of the
one hero to-night, for which tho proceeds
of the evening will help to pay. On the
other hand we have much encouragement in tho sympathy of parents nnd
tho intelligence and interest displayed
by the members of the baud. We all
hope that you will enjoy our little entertainment. The children have not had
very muoh time for practice and of course
cannot give you anything very grand,
but they hope that in listening to their
programme you will not feel that the
timo has been wasted.

A Settler's Experience,
Eiiitor ' Columbian. — Permit
through tho columns of your valuable
paper, to say a.few words words for the
information of parties desiring to obtain
land, I came to this country by way of
New Westminster, crossed by the steam
ferry, and took the Scott road out here.
My first impressions were thut there was
no good laud iu Surrey; but on reaching
Mud Bay I felt more encouraged. Here
I found n large tract of most excellent
prairie land. Although rather low, the
land hero is almost all taken up and a
great deal of it by speculators who are
asking large prices for it. From here I
weut to Clover Valley and located on a
piece of govornment land. Thia is a fino
valley. The laud Ib similar to that of
Mud Bay, but higher, not requiring dyking at all. I know of no place where a
small amount of money would do so
much good as here. The Clover Valley
road rims through the center of this
valley, aud when completed will be of
great value to the settlers. Tho grtidca
aro easy, and the land on either side is
first class, and the road is centrally located. The settlors have done what they
cuuld on this line of road; the council
and the government have helped; but
there still remains a great deal to be
done. But we livo iu hope of further
assistance from both these sources this
season.—Yours, (ko.,

A Singular Proceeding
Editor Columbian,—A vacancy in
the council having occurred by the disqualification of Mr. Swett for ward Ko.
I, the council issued a notice to the electors of the ward, asking thein to attend
their meeting ou the 7th inst. and suggest any party they might wish appointed
to the vacancy. Accordingly several
attended and presented a petition signed
by the majority of tho electors in the
ward for the return of Mr. T. E. Ladner.
However, in face of this and of the fact
that no one else was proposed by auy
elector in the ward, the council appointed Mr. George Main by a majority of 2
to 1— throe councillors and the reevo
on y being preseut. The appointment
causes much dissatisfaction and surprise
in the settlement and will cause the
ratepayers to bo very careful how they
vote on a loan bylaw should one como
before them, it being very apparent that
there ure "axes to grind" by certain
councillors. It scorns hardly credible
that two councillors, could be found to
propose and second the appointment ot a
councillor for a ward who dees not represent the electors of tho ward, and the
man who would allow himself to be appointed in the faco of a majority against
liim cau hardly possess the necessary
principles for a councillor.—Yours respectfully, An Elector,

having expressed their willingness to go
into active service."
Paris, Feb. 11.—DeLesseps, in an interview, considered the English expedition doomed to failure. It may reach
Khartoum but the Soudanese will not
submit. The English, in going or returning, will fall prey to hundreds of
thousands of fanatics who are ready to

Lonoon, Feb. II.—With General Gordon wore Uamuil, the Austrian Vice-Con*
sui, aud 20 Greeks mid Levantine merchants. The firm at Alexandria for
whom the Greeks have been acting as
agents do not believe tho story of the
massacre at Khartoum. It is known that
El Mahdi holds 50 Greek prisoners in his
camp or at El Obeid, and that they are
well treated. In reply to inquiries, General Wolseley telegraphs that he has no
more authentic news than that-brought
to Korti by General Wilson.
Ottawa, Feb. 12.—The offer of Lieut-
Colonels Williams and Trywhit, M. P.,
Colonel Van Straubeazi and other Canadian officers, to raise Canadian regiments
for service in Egypt has been declined,
but Canadians will be employed to do
garrison duty in England, if they desire

Bulkah Island on Tuesday; "The British
troops advanced to attack the enemy,
who had a strong position on the hills.
After some fighting the enemy woro completely surrounded. Finding it impossible to dislodge the rebels from their fortified position, General Earle ordered the
troops to charge. Genoral Earle was
killed white leading tho attack. The
Black Watch regiment captured tlie position at the point of the bayonet, the
cavalry taking possession of the enemy's
camp. General Brackenburg, upon the
fall of General Earle, assumed command
and ordered the remaining positions of
the en-, my to be stormed. Thn troops
acted promptly, made a most gallant attack nud booh captured all the enemy's
positions, The fighting lasted five hours.
There was great slaughter among the enemy, Thoso wbo survived escaped by
swimming the river."
London, Feb. 12.—The Cabinet toddy approved General Wolseley*s plan
for an early advance from Suakim to Berber. A narrow gauge railway will be
laid to Ariab, 30 miles west of Suakim,
where an entrenched camp will bo formed, with a central depot for stores. On
leaving Ariab the troops will proceed by
forced marches to Berber. It Ib calculated that the march will begin ahout tbe
third week in March, and It is hoped
that Berber will be reached in six weeks,'
Ariab, where the entrenched camp will
be formed, ia on the way from Suakim to
Berber, and is described as a "smiling
oasis" whero there is good pasturage and
plenty of water.
London, Feb. 12.—General Wolseley
telegraphs that Brackeuburgh reports
from Dulkah Island, over seventy miles
above Noaiva, that Earle's attack was
well planned and gallantly executed. Ho
expected the effect would be to open tho
way to Berber without further fighting.
The rebels held tho high bridge ou tlie
rise of the lulls, Six • companies of the
Black Warch and aix comrauies of the
staff regiments marched around the high
hills, entirely turning the enemy's position, which was theu attacked from tho
rear. The enemy was not great in point
of numbers, but liis position was very
strong and diflicult of access. They
fought with most determined bravery.
General Earle was among tho foremost
in the attack, and his hill has caused
deep lament from every officer and man
in the force. He was killed ou the aummit of the hill, behind which the enemy
was posted. At almost the same time
Lieut.-Colonel Eyre was killed. The
camp was captured by the tilth Huzzars.
The English success is complete. Ten
standards were among tlio spoils of the
victory, The enemy's dead lay thick
among the rocks and iu open fields, When
thoy found that thoy wero surrounded
they made n desperate effort to rush
through the English column, in which
rush hut few escaped. The English loss
consists of General Earle, Colonel Eyre,
Lieut-Col. Coventry, and nine men of
rank and file kilted, four officers and
twenty-one men wounded. The English
intended to continue the advance along

In addition to these statements, Lord

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ aud Piano Company
of Uowninnvillc, It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a maguifi
eent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, whicli cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for mom in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable (juartcrs on the
grounds Tor their business has betm rewarded. The largo number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase provta
beyond ijucstion thnt the public approve
the,provision made for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to tost performances ou
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
(tight well do tho Company deserve
tho success which they have achieved.
Tlie present prosperous concern liad, like
all givat institutions, its day of smull
thing*. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about liftcen years ago, tho stock boing
at that time largely hold by parties unacquainted with the business. About ten
years go .lohn Wesley, the present secre
tary and treasurer; George I'iggott,
manager of tlio manufacturing depart
incut) and Wi 8. Russell, superintendent ef thu timing department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date tho business'has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner, i'iano
making was added to the organ-munu<
fneturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out about SOO organs and f>0
pianos per month. Theso are produced
by i.'iO hands, who receive iu wages
about $15,000 jicr month. The whole
civilized world ib the Unit's market, and
they have brandies iu Loudon and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia! Auck-.
land, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments ou exhibition in the
pavilion are fair examples of the Company's workmanship, An upright piano
of burr walnut ia a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room, and Ts convenient for
comparatively small apartments. .The
square grand is finished on all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited fur occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. Tliese
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and ap-
pearunix thoy are equal to the hest
American pianos.
The organs made by tho Company arc
known almost everywhere, They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000, Many
sample organs nro shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ which tho Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present ut the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected iicrc at the
cud of tho week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has

Ho laughed, but Hostor did not
laugh, Shu gavo him a keen luok, iu
which thore was a toucli of disdain.
"Do you really think," bIio aaid, "tliat
the charm of inspiring, as you call it,
is what any reasonable croaturo would
proFer tu be doing? To umko somobody
else a hero ratlior than to bo a hero
yourself? Women would need to be
disinterested indeed if they likod that
best. I don't see it. Besides, we avo
not in tho days of chivaly. What
could yuu bo inspired to do? Mako
bottor bargains on your Stuck Exchange ? and reward - Oh, that ia not
tho way it is lookod ut nowadays. You
think it iB you who—" Horo Hestor
paused, with a rising color; "I will nut
aay what I was going to say,'1 sho remarked.
"What yuu wure guing lo say was
cruel. Besides, it was not true. I
must know bost, being on the sidu of
the slandered. A man who is worth
calling a man can havo but ono opinion
on that subject."
Hoster looked at liim again with a
serious criticism which embarrassed
Roland. Shu was not regarding tho
question lightly, as a mere subject of
provocative talk, but was surveying
him as if to read how far ho was true
and how far fictitious. Bofore he
could say unytliing she shook lior head,
with a littlo sigh.
"Besides," sho continued, "it was
not a hero 1 was thinking of; if anybody, it was Catherine Vornon."
"Whom you don't liko. These women,who step out of their sphere, they
may do much to hu respected, they
may bo of groat ubb ; but—"
"You tneau that men don't like
them," said Hester, with u smile; "but
thon, women do ; and, after all, we aro
tho half of creation, or more."
"Women do ! Oh, no; that is a
mistake. Let us ask tho company
present, your mother and 'also my
sister."
Hestor put out hor hand to stop
him. "That goes far doopor," she Baid,
with a rising blush, What did sho
uieau 1 Roland was sufficiently versed
in all tho questions of this kind which
aro discussed in idleness to promote
flirtation, But ho did not know why
she should blush so deeply, or why her
broad forehead should contract when
ho claimed his Bister and her mother
together aa representatives of women.
They wero so, better than Heater heraelf waa. Mrs. John represented all
tho timid opinions and obstinate prejudices of weakness ; all that is gently
conventional apd stereotyped in that
creature conventionally talked about as
Woman from tho beginning of time ;
while the other represented that othor
more vulgar typo of character which,
without boing eithor strong enough lit
generous enough to strike out n new
belief, makes a practical and cynical
commentary upon the old oue, and
considers man as tho natural provider
of woman's comfort, and, therefore, indispensable ; to ho aoourod as any other source of income and eiiBo ought to
bo secured. • Hester was wounded and
ashamed that her mother should be
classed witii Emina, but could say
nothing against it; and she wna moved
with a high indignation lo think that
Roland wns right. But he had not tliu
least idea what she *could mean, and
she liad uu mind to enlighten hiin,
Their conversation came to an oud, accordingly, and the sound of tho others
came in.
('I don't see why I should go away,"
said Emma, "for, whatever ho may
choose to say, Rokuid doesn't want me,
not a bit. ElisMibeth is a very, uood
cook, aud that is all a man thinks of.
I couldn't do him any good at homo,
and ho doesn't liko my acquaintances.
A girl can't livo without friends, can
she, Mrs. John ? If you aro going to
have any amusement at all, you must
be getting it when you're about twenty, that ia the time. But men never
care; they go out, and they have their
own friends separate, and they never
think of you. But hore, without bothering liim a bit, I Imve lots of nice
people, and grandmamma has never
said she was tired of mc. Then why
ahould he take mo awny ?'*
"There is ho reason for talking of
that just now at all," said Mrs. John,
politely, "for Mr. Roland ia not going
away himself as yot."
"Oh, ho cannot stay long," cried Emma, "he ought uot to stay; he has got
his business—not liko mo, tliat have
nothing to call mo. Edward Vernon
wouldn't liko it a bit if Roland stayed
away from his business."
"I am always hearing tho namo of
Edward Vernon," said Mrs. John ;
"you mentioned it to Hester juat now.
What has lie to do with Hester or with
Mr. Roland's business ? Although
Catherino Vernon thinks so much of
him, he is not ono of my favorites. !
like his cousin Hurry better."
"And so do I," Roland said.
They all looked at him with surprise
and Hester with a sudden increase uf
color. Sho waB angry, though sho
could not have told why. "He iB very
hot and eager in business," Roland
said. "I supposu I ought to liko him
tho better for that. Aud be has a keen
eyo, too; but it goes to his hend, and
that jb what une nover should allow
one's busincBs to do."
"All I" cried Mrs. John, "if it can
he prevented, Mr. Roland. That was
what happened to my dour husband.
Ho could uot be cool, as 1 suppose it is
right to be. But soiuetiiiios don't ymi
think oue likes a person better for not
calculating too much—for lotting himself bo carried away 1"
* Roland looked more dark than ho
hud evor buen Been to look before, and
responded, vaguely, "Perhaps," with a
faco that had no doubtfulness in it.
"Why should ho not be hot and
eager?'' cried Hestor; "I understand
that vory woll. Everything is quiot
hero. A man, whon ho gets out of this
still atmosphere, wants a little excitement, nnd to fling himself iuto it."
"Ah 1" said Mra. John,"that is what
your poor father alwaya said."
But Roland had nevor lookod so un-
sympathetic. "A man may lose his
head in lovo or in war, or in adventuro
or in pleasure, but ho must not lose it
un tlie Stock Exchange,'' he said; then
looking np, with an uneasy laugh, "I
need not warn you, -ladies, uaed I ?
for you will never lose your heads
about shares and premiums. I am glad
to think I am a very steady follow my-
■ulf."    '
"Oh, steady?" cried Mrs. John,
alarmed. "I hopo, I am sure, they
an all quite steady. I never hoard a
word to tlio contrary. It would bo
dreadful for poor Catherine ; after all,
though we are not very good friends,
not auch good friends as I should wish
to be, it would be dreadful; for if Ed-
wu not steady—oh. I hope, Mr. Roland, you nre mistaken. I hope that
it ii not io."
"He means a steady head, mother;
thore ii no question uf anything elso,"
uid Heiter, uxy red and troubled.
Hor secret, consciousness in respect to
Edward made life and conversation
very diflicult for her. She could not
bear any aunnailvuraiuii upon him,
though in her heart sho mado many,
and at the samo timo sho could not defend him openly. What was ho to hor
more than Harry was 1 Tho same far-
oil'cousin, old friend; uot so much ub
Harry, indeed, for all tho world know
tlmt Harry would fain havo established
anothor relationship, had it seemed
good iu HeBter's eyea.
"I meant nothing against hia morals," Roland said.
"That is a groat relief to iny mind,"
said Mrs, John, "for Catherine Vernon is a good woman, though Bhe and
I havo nevor been great friends; and
it is a terrible thing to sot your heart
upon a child and have him turn out
badly. There is nothing so heartrending as that. One of my mothor's
sisters, Aunt Eliza, of whom you havo
hoard mo talk, Hester, had a son—-"
"Oh, mamma, I don't think wo want
tu hear about that."
"Aud you woro coming out forn
walk," said Emma, who saw that hor
own affairs wero slipping out uf notico.
"Didn't she say sho wuuld como out
for a walk ? And if wo aro going wo
had bettor not bo loug about it, for
the days are so short at this time of
tho year."
"Rut oil your hat, Hester; it will
do yuu goud. Yuu change color so I
do not know what to make of it," hor
mothor aaid,
"Aud bo do I now," cried Emmn;
"thuy always tell me it is indigestion;
but that is not a uico reason to givo
when peoplo think you aro blushing
about something, lt iB very disagiee-
ablo. Mine comes on after dinner
when we dine early, aud all tho afternoon I am just a fright. It is a blessing it goes olf toward evening, whon
ono is seeing peoplo, Roland, you
must tako Ll ester and mo into Bed-
borough. I want so buy some gloves,
and 1 dare say so does she, for the
Merridews' to-night."
"Sho is not going tu tho Merri-
dows')" said Mrs, John, with a plaintive sound in hor voico;
"Oh, sho told us something about
that, but I didn't believe it waa true.
Why shouldn't aho go to tho Merri-
dows'— alio, that in always mado so
much of, just liko tho sister uf tho
house ? If I hud that position, I never
should misa ouo evoning; aud, indeed,
I nover have, since I had my tirst invitation. Grandpapa did not like it
nt first, but, of course, ho got reconciled. Oh, here you ure, Hoster; how
quickly yon do dress! To bo sure, you
never put on anything but that pea-
coat uf yours. But I don't like drawing on my gloves aa I go out, aa you
do; I tike lu put thorn on carefully,
and smooth thom, and ■ button them
up."
"You are always so tidy," aaid Mrs.
John, with a faint sigh. She could
not hut feel it would bo an advantage
if Hester, though so much superior,
would i»et sumo of Emma's ways. Sho
waa so neat; nover a hair uut of order,
or a shoe-tie Iuubo. Whereas, now and
then, iu hor own child, there were imperfections. But she smiled as alio
looked after them, going out to tho
door to sue thom gu. Hester, with
her varying complexion (which hud
nothing to do with her digestion),
threw up her head to meet tho wind
with ti movement so vigorous, so full
id grace and life, thnt it was a pleasure
to suu. Tho mother thought it was
pretty to watch her drawing on hur
gloves, though, perhaps, it would have
been tidier to button them carefully,
as Emilia did, before shu camo downstairs; hut then, in those days gloves
hnd few buttons, nud woro easily managed. As soon as thoy had gono out
uf tho Vernonry Emma gavo Hester a
significant look, and ovon a nudgo, if
it must be told, and beggod them to
walk on while she ran iu for au umbrella which she had forgotten. "For
it always rains whon ouo hasn't an
umbrella," sho said. I oost Hester an
effort to roi number what tho look and
the nudge meant. Thon sho laughed
as she watched the achemor down to
Captain Morgan's door.
"Why du you want tu luko Emma
away?" she said. "Sho seems to bo
happy here.""
"Do yon think she makes the old
poople happier? They don't suy unytliing, but alio seems to mo to worry
my old grandfather. I don't want tu
tako hor away. She has her littlo
schemes un hand, no doubt, nnd means
tu settle, or something; but I cannot
let hor trouble tlie old people. Thoy
aru purt uf my religion, Roland Baid.
This, too, was meant as provueation to
draw Hester on to discuss tho question
of religion, perhaps tu an attempt to
convert . him to sounder views,'
which is u very fruitful method.
Ho looked at her with a pleased defiance in hia eyes. But Hester waB not
to he drawn out un thia subject. Sho
had no dogmatic teaching in hor, and
did uot feel qualified to discuss a man's
religion. Instead, she returned to the
subject of their previous discussion,
half abandoning Emma's cause.-
'"What do you do at the Stock Exchange?" she said.
"That ia a tremendous question. I
don't know how to niiBwor it. I Bhould
have to give you a lecturo upon shares
and coir, pan ies, and nll the vicissitudes
uf tho funds."
"These, I suppose, aro your material
just na written things uru thu material
for a newspaper editor. I understand
that,'' said Hester; "what I want tu
know is what you do,"
"Wo buy and we doll," he said, with
a laugh, "Wo arc nu bettor than any
shopkeeper. We buy a thing when it
is cheap, and huld it till it becomes
dear, and then we sell it again."
."But whu," Baid Hoster, with n littlo acorn, "is so silly us to buy things
voheti they are dear? Ia it to oblige
you 1 I thought that was against political economy, aud everything of that
kind," sho nddod, vaguely. Tt was
not the subject Roland wuuld have
chosen, but out of that, too, hu could
draw the thread of talk.
"Political economy is nut infallible,"
ho said. "Wo praise our wares ao,
iind represent their excellence so warmly, thnt there coines a moment when
everybody wishes to buy thom. Sometimes thoy deserve tho commendations
we bestow, suinotimes they —don't.
But, in either caso people buy. And
then political economy comea in, and
thu demand being great increases Ihe
valuo; hu that, sometimes, wu mnke n
nice little bit of profit without spending a penny,"
Hostor looked at him with a blank
faco. She knew nothing about these
mysteries.   Sho shook her hoad,
"I dun't understand busiiieBB," she
said; "but how can yuu buy without
spending a pennyI I wish I knew how
to do that.
