current Events and Opinions.
We oan hardly believe that, iu
view of his past experience, Mr,
Norquay enn really Imve undertaken
to moke a final settlement with regard to the lands iu the name of the
province. If ho he has displayed
an amount of temerity for whicli we
had not given him credit. Manitoba is neither in a position nor in
tlie temper at present to accept any
such agreement. — Manitoba Free
Press.
Reasons have been found for believing tliat:—The North-West wns
once n wooded country; it was cleared by fire }*the (ires wore tlie work
of man; it would take between five
and ten centuries of such tiros to
effect the present clearance, and
their starting-point must have been
in the direction of tlie Ootcau du
Missouri. Therefore, the North-
West country was populated by migration up the Missouri Valley from
the Southern Central Plains, between five and ten centuries ago.

Reasoning by analogy from dnta
furnished by experiments on rabbits
and monkeys, a London surgeon assured a patient that he was suffering from tumor on the bruin. Not
this alone, he told the exact spot
where the tumor was to be found.
It was the patient's Inst chance.
He coultl not recover whilo the tumor wns there. He might recover
if it wero -removed, though the
operation would bo' undoubtedly
dangerous. ! Ho wisely took tho
risks. His skull was -opened, and
tlie tumor was found exactly wliere
the surgeon had diagnosed. It was
removed without difficulty, and the
patient nt Inst accounts was doing
well, with every prospect of many
years of health and usesulncss before
him. It is impossible to get over
facts like these, if they are properly
vouched for.—Truth.
It, will probably turn out that
Bismarck's hostility to Mr. Gladstone is liased on something more
practical and immediate than even
the securing of. an understanding
with France. It is said that Mr.
Ghidstono is the only statesman in
Europe who stands in the way of
that settlement of the Eastern question which the Prince favors. He
wants before he dies to turn Austria
into a Sclavonic power. He desires
lUo'tn give Russia enough to do in
Asia Minor to keep her busy for a
decade at least. Had England annexed Egypt he', would have felt
himself free to agitate this development of the Eastern question, Mr.
Gladstone has not only refused to
annex Egypt, but has cried "Hands
off" to Austria, ond prevented the
advance to Salomon, which Bismarck would 'provoke. In fact
Austria is pledged in honor not to
advance to Salomon so long as Mr.
Gladstone is in power, a promise
not to do so having beon given to
Mr. Gladstone as a quid pro quo for
the much-denounced Karolyi apology. Bismarck, irritated at tliis, is
paying Mr. Ghidstono off. The
Angra Fequena incident gave him
his excuse.—Liverpool Mercury.
How great Mr. Gladstone is wc
shall never really know until he is
gone. At present he is not so much
appreciated as idolized. . No man
ever had so deep, so powerful o hold
upon the imagination of the people
as the Prime Minister has today.
When he travels over the cotmtry,
his journeys are more thnn royal
processions. Crowds wait at ivory
railway station to clamor for ^passing word, and a hundred newspapers
givo precedence to reports of his
wayside talk over new* of the fnll
of ministries or the fnto of campaigns.    In the popular imagination
he has undergone an apotheosesjjot ~ , , ,„-.--.-■ -,,-,-, --,■--■■„■ , ■

the Russian peasant takes place on
tlie coronation of the Czar. He is
the only statesman who at once
kindles the imagination, informs the
understanding, and commands the
enthusiasm of the people. . Without
him to praise or to abuse, English
politics would lose half their zest.
He is the great dominant personality
of our nation. If anything goes
wrong tho people do not blame liim,
but charitably lament the shortcomings of his colleagues. "If only Mr.
Gladstone would take it in hand !"
is the cry, of tho masses whenever a
difficulty insuperable by ordinary
mortals overtakes the State, and
''Moro power at his elbow" is the
popular panacea for all the ills of the
body politic. It is strange to witness this revival of the old kingship
as the lirst-fruits of English democracy, and it is well that the first
monarch of the new line should bear
a character as lofty ns that of Mr,
Gladstone.— Pull Mall Gazette.

It would be curious, after all tlie
jHmrparler* which have passed between England and tho United
States apropos of tho Nicaraguan
Treaty, and the discussions on diplomatic ethics which the proposal to
abrogate the Olayton-Bulwer Treaty
has precipitated, if it wero to turn
out that the difficulty Iiiih arisen
entirely out of the enterprise of a
private individual. Yet so it is alleged. Captain Bedford Pym, who
it will be remembered was instrumental in bringing the British Association to Montreal lust August,
is said to be at the bottom of the
Nicaragua .scheme. He ifl credited
witli owning territory where the
proposed canal is to be eut, and it
is his interest (8100,000 probably)
which is the grain of mustard seed
that threatens to sprout into au expenditure of $200,000,000 and a
serious misunderstanding betweon
England and the United States.
Read in the light of this rumor Captain Pym's report to Socretary Ero-
linghuysen on the Panama Canal
inigh not appear quite disinterested.
Less than three -miles out of' the
contemplated forty-one miles of
water-way have been oponod, we
aro told, and in the opinion of Captain Pym it would toko ton thousand men fifteen yenrs to finish the
necessary excavations, and another
five years would he required to fit
tho canol for trafllc.—The Week.
Provincial Legislature.
THUJIBDAY.
Continuing the iliucussion of tho
Metlakahtla troublea, Mr. Dingwall
blamed Mr. Duncan, and hoped that
strong measures would bo adopted to
preserve tbo pence. Mr. Grant snid
tlmt tho Indians hud fast summer nt
Lorne Creek demanded &o each from
the miners, nnd .had threatened the
use of ni-ma if not nccooded to. The
Indians showed a hostile attitude, nad
decisive fiteps should lie tnkon in the
matter.
Mr. Dunsmuir said it wns ridiculous
to blame Mr. Duncan for nll tlie trouble. He trusted that hon. gentlemen
from tho outset would not direct thoir
attacks on Mr. Duncan, to whom thuy
woro indebted for a great deal cf good
among tho Indians.
Mr. Pooley said that if tho liou, gentleman from Naiiniino hud rend the
evidence of tho commission carefully
he would not hnvo spoken as he did.
Uo hud thoroughly rend the evidence,
and he thought the question before
tho house was the protection of the
miners. He considered the whole
cause of the trouble was the teachings
of Mr. Duncan to the Indians. Mr.
Duncan declined to answer questions
because, as ho stated, he would criminate himself. The answer wns not
thnt of an honest mnn or one who felt
iu his heart innocent of the crimes at
Metlakahtla.
Mr, Cunningham said he did not intend to take a prominent position in
tho discussion. Still there wero many
things iu the evidence tlint showed Mr.
Duncan had done great good among
tho Indians.
Mr. Theo. Davie said he would not
posu ns un apologist for Mr. Duncan,
nnd nil -the blumo Bhould not be ascribed to the missionaries. Stilt ho thought
they were the main cause of the trouble Littlo mention was made of
Bishop Ridley in the report, but it
was evident thnt ho hud accomplished
little good, and certainly there was no
trouble until ho went there. However,
it was not the province uf this houso
to discuss thnt gentleman's character,
Mr. Galbraith—The law should be
enforced at Metlakahtla. The state of
things there was disgraceful and the
law should be carried out aud the Iu-1
dinus shown that they would be punished aud their teachers also if they
break tho law. A system of public
supervision should he inaugurated hy
the Dominion tu see that law and order
wns enforced. Some prompt action
should be taken by tho Dominion government, or if not, this govornment
should do so, and nny notion taken by
this houso would meet with tho approval of all the members. < The law
ihould be unforced nud the lives uf
white mon protected,
Mr. Somlin said tlint the land question itself was the main onoMvith tho
ludinn question. This feeling hnd existed in the interior somo time ngo and
it seemed to he thu ease ut Metlakahtla
and why should they truce the whole
cause to Mr. Duncan when the same
feeling existed whoro he wns unknown.
Ho wiu heartily with the government
in the matter of protecting miners nnd
others. Ho was quite in nceord with
the opinion of the member for Nanaimo that Mr. Duncan had been of groat
service to the Indians nu tho northwest coast. They nil knew how he
had abolished tho liquor traffic nnd
had taught tho Indians industry, and
had taught thom the nrts and usages
of civilized life,- He did not seo why
Mr. Duncan should be brought into
the debate at all. but when that gentleman Was attacked he thought the
hon, gentlemen who approved of hiB
worth should record the fact before
the house.
Mr. Helgesen spoko of the honesty
of the Indians on the north, wost const
and' regretted thnt the missionaries
ihould hnvo been brought into disrepute as they hnd dono n great deal of
good.
Mr. Grant said he recognized the
good Mr. Duncan hnd done in tho past,
and before tho Bishop went there ho
had been spokon of ns a mnn of moderation. He hnd met Mr. Duncnu and
was somewhat impressed with the mnn.

Nllnnlny   Morning,   Ft*. T, I***.
A convention of tlio Ontario
branch of Hio Dominion Temperance
Alliance was lately held ,it Toronto,
and the meeting was unusually large
nnd enthusiastic. In an interview
Mr. Speuce, the secretary, said that
of tlio 48 divisions for Scott Aot
purposes in Ontario, all but 8 had
either adopted.tho act or wero being
ortsjanized for a vote upon it, and lie
believed tlie remaining S would soon
come into line. It is the hope of
the temperance people that prohibition may be practically secured under tho Scott Act.
The suggestion of an Anglo-Saxon
alliance made by the Pall Midi Gar
suite will meet with a hearty response on this continent. Tho relations between Great Hrituin mid
the United States have for many
years been of the most friendly
character, and there are no two nations in tlio world between which
war would be so great a calamity.
A firm alliance, offensive and defensive, between these two free,
progressive and powerful nations
would constitute a combination
strong enough to control tiio destinies of the world. They are both
sprung from the sainn stock, and
have the same blood coursing
through their veins, and the community of interests between them is
very great. AVe should hail such
nn alliance with enthusiasm.
The Fall or Khartoum.
Our telegraphic despatches yesterday refer to a report that Khartoum lias fallen into the hands of
the Arabs, and it is not known
whether Gen. Gordon has been killed or taken prisoner. The wives
have been down and the dispatches
containing tht* most inoliiiieiioly announcement Imve not reached us.
Tliere seems to be no ground, however, for believing that the report is
unfounded, because it seems that
prompt measures are now being
taken by the Uritish government to
meet the new circumstances. Aftor
the brilliant achievements of the
expedition sent out to relieve Khartoum, this new disaster is extremely
disheartening, and must produce a
profound sensation everywhere.
Useless Regrets.
By a close vote the United States
senate has refused to ratify the
Nicaragua treaty, involving the
construction of the Nicaragua ship
canal. We pointed out not long
ago that the' course which tlio
Washington government should manifestly have pursued was to*have
notified the Uritish government and
obtained its consent Ik fore negotiating such a treaty. To assume that
the Olayton-Bulwor treaty would
never be regarded as a binding agreement was to assume something for
which no warrant whatever existed.
It is quite possible that Britain
might waive any claims she may
have to hold the United States under that treaty, but common courtesy would havo suggested the propriety of making a request for formal
release instead of Hying in the face-
of tlie express conditions of the
treaty itself. If Canada is considered* a part of the Empire, Britain
has almost as much right to interfere iu tlio Nicaragua canal as tlio
United States. Uritish North
America is a larger area than any
other nation on the continent, and
in ten years it wilt bave population,
influence and wealth enough to command the respect even of the republic. The Nicaragua canal would
undoubtedly becotne a great highway
between the two oceans; and as
British shipping exceeds that of the
United States enormously, British
venielx would bo the canal's best
patrons. There arc many reasons
why Britain should insist upon
l»ing represented in the control of
this international work ; but if she
does not choose to insist, her consent
should at lenst have been asked tn
tlm Nicaragua treaty. It is here
the Washington people  blundered.
An Honest Resolution.
It will surprise some persons to
know that the United States house
of representatives has resolved to
return the unexpended balanco of
the Ohinese award. This award
originally amounted to $750,000,
nnd was paid to America by China
as satisfaction for the destruction
of property in China during the
riots. A commission was appointed
to adjust these claims, and when it
had satisfied all honest demands
there was found on hand an unexpended balance of nearly (250,000
for whioh no claims existed. For
many years 'llm disposal of litis
balanco formed the subject of discussion in congress, but no definite
conclusion lias been reached until
now. Tlie balance, with accrued
interest, is said to amount uow to
the sum of nearly $550,000, and
this sum will be most acceptable to
China in hor present condition of
financial embarrassment* But it is
no more than au act of simple justice that this money should be returned. It was paid for a specific
purpose, and the legitimate claims
having been fully satisfied, the balance belongs to China and not, to
the United States. And there is
another caso of much the same
character which tho Washington
authorities might adjust while the
streak of honest purpose guides
thoir deliberations. In consequence
of the depredations committed by
the rebel steamer Alabama and
others, tlreat Britain paid tho
United States as indemnity the sum
of (ubont) $15,000,000. This payment was received nnd aeknow-
'ledged by the United States on the
9th of September, 1872. It was
distinctly agreed by the joint commission that claims under the Geneva award were to be limited to
actual losses, and consequential
damages wero barred out. But although every legitimate claim has
long ago been satisfied, and every
cfl'ort exhausted . to discover new
claimants, tho balance of the Geneva award now remaining in the
United States treasury amounts to
many millions of dollars. There is
no prospect whatever that new
claims will be presented against
this fund, because the ingenuity of
the American people in this direction lias been totally exhausted
after years of vigorous exercise.
The question of finally disposing of.
this largo balance has frequently
been discussed both in and ■ out of
the house of representatives. More
than once a resolution has been proposed to return the money to Great
Britain, but it never carried. The
balance undoubtedly belongs to
Great Britain, and should be returned to her; and since the American government has made up its
mind to give back to China the unexpended balance of the Ttie Ping
award, we need not be greatly surprised if a similar resolution should
prevail with respect to tfio Alabama
balance. It is quite possible that
Great Britain might decline to accept, the gift, and might request
that it be applied to some philanthropic purpose. In that case the
United States would have the consciousness of having acted honestly
without suffering any actual loss.
chances in tho squftttors'claims on
condition Lhat they wuuld use thoir
influence iu various ways to bring
the house to recognize Iheir claims.
Everyday new faces are turning up
with new interests, and the legislative halls have been alive with persons who had their minds filled with
the idea that if the scheme succeeded they were on the sine road to
fortune, it is even hinted that
promises of part of the spoils had
been given to certain members of
parliament in consideration of theii
supporting the claims! If tliese
hints are founded upon fact, and we
believe they are, the. public will seo
the unwisdom of bringing these
squatters' claims into the houso at
all, where lobbying aud button-holing
aud other schemes of doubtful propriety could be pursued ad libitum.
We have always been of opinion
that a court of justice was the proper place to ventilate this matter,
and tho more the developments in
connection with it become made
known, the stronger this conviction
grows. Tho business of the house
and the country is being seriously
and unnecessarily delayed, and it
will be impossible to know certainly
whether the final decision of the
committee or tho house is founded
upon the facts or is the result of influences which ought not to have
been permitted to exist.
If you wnnt n neat calendar for ISS5,

imrortuimte Complications.
At the present writing there is
nothing known respecting the result
of the squatters' claims committeo.
Pending the report of that committee, public business makes
no progress. There are very urgent
reasons why the agreement with the
syndicate should be disposed of without delay, and until that has been
done the house will hardly be found
in a temper lo give its calm consideration to other matters. There are
two accredited agents of the syndicate now in the provinco waiting
until the agreement has been ratified by the house. Neither of them
can proceed with the special business with which he has been entrusted. Business and "speculation are
in a state of stagnation. We are
told that there are thousands of
dollars of outside capital lying in
the banks waiting until the house
has declared its intention. This
money has been laid up for investment at Goal Harbor, but it produces no benefit to tho country
while it remains in the vaults. So
far as wc have been able to learn
from persons who hnve returned
from Victoria, there has lieen very
little that is new developed by the
committee, Tliere are some squatters who admit freely that they have
no bona fide claims to the property
upon which they squatted. The
scheme was entered into purely as ti
speculation, and not for the purpose
of settlement at all. Tt has also
come to be evident that the influences of this squatters' combination
were far more extended than was at
first supposed. The handful of
original squatters lias grown into a
combination which may prove dangerous to the state nnd to tho public
morality if it is not met with a bold
front aud uncompromising firmness.
There can be no doubt in the mind
of any one that this land was squatted upon because it was thought to
be specially valuable on account of
its proximity to tho G.P.K. It was
not taken up for agricultural purposes at all But these squatters
seem to have conceived-that their
chances of ultimate success would
be increased in proportion to their
numbers, They, therefore, formed
what is known as the squatters' ring.
A vast number of persons .were induced upon various pretexts to tako

tho Dominion agent aud would not

right that the provincial government

havo sent protection for their agent.
This was an Indian trouble and should

He was in favor of passing a strong
resolution, to be forwarded to tbo
Dominion government stating the imperative necessity of enforcing the law
on the northern coast. He did not
think it was wise to commute the sentence of Yeoman's murderor. Tho
Indians would think that they had
frightened tho authorities so that they
were afraid to take tho lifo of their
countryman. It-would only make mat-
tors worse and the Indiana more insolent. The Dominion govornment
neglected to exert tho authority thoy
possessed ou the une hand, nud they
were on thu other increasing tiio difficulty of dealing with' the question by
commuting the sentence of tbe murderer of Yeomans. Mr. Duncan wns
exorcising his influence for evil ovor
the Indiuus, but thu locnl government
could not net iu the matter. The Dominion ""governmeut had authority to
remove any whito man from nn Indian
reservation, but they had never exercised such power, and ho would advocate that a very -strong resolution bu
passed urging upon the Dominion government thu necessity of a vigorous
ad minis tuition of Indian alfairs in thia
province',
. Ou the suggestion of Mr. Galbraith
it was decided that tho evidence taken
before the squatters' chums committeo
be printed each day and submitted to
tbe bouse, and the house adjourned
until Tuesday.

Dklayed Mails.— There hns beon
no train from nbovo since Friday of
last weok, and no mail. A special train
left Port Moody yesterday morning for
Ruby Cceek,whore it wns expected tho
down passengers and mails would bo
transferred. There, ia a locomotive
willi Ihu regular train above Hopo tunnel and Ruby Creek, It waa proposed
to transfer tlm contents of the train
over Hope tunnel (wliich haa caved) to
tho locomotives, carry thom down to
Ruby Creek, and there transfer them
to the apecial for Port Moody. The
train should reach Port Moody some
lime last night or to-dny. Tho railway
people don t seem to concern tliom-
si-lvea particularly over a failure to fulfil their mail conlrnct. When a trnin
breaks down, or a hridgn or a tunnel
collapses, the mail is permitted to1 lio
right tliere until tho damage -has beeu
repaired. In othor countries it is Customary under such circumstances to
mako arrangements immediately: for
forwarding tho mails. But,, they, do!
things differently in British' Coiumbin,
and the otlicial Bcems to stand it with
perfect composure. ;.
An Ambiucan Opinion.- The Now
York 3Vi'Mt)i<!siiys, editorially: "Tliere
have been adverse criticisms upon
American naval administration, Thu
present discussion has shown that the
French nnvy stands in need of
proveinent, while it cannot be doubted
that those of Germany and Italy.miller
from dofecta. But Englishmen and
Americans have tho habit of airing
their administrative mistakes publicly,
and bo other nations often got the'idea
that those mistakes are fnr more serious
than, in fact, thoy are. So far.as can
be judged, from n cool comparttftin of
the recent statements of high authorities, the English navy is to-day strong
enough to meet any two of the strongest navies extant, A combination*of
tho three strongest foreign navies
might bo two much for hor, but no
single navy appears to be lit to cope
with her, and ahe need, not fear tho
union of two. Of course it would bo
safer for her if her nnvy was a inatch
for all the other navies put together;
but that has very seldom beon the case,
and it cannot be hold to be necessary
for her] protection so long as a serious
and extensive alliance against her is
altogether unlikely;"

Aii Open Letter.
To Ilie lion. J. Cunningham and lhe. J foil.
J. Orr, M, P. Ps.
Gkntlkmen.—I am exceedingly glad
that you propose an investigation into
the appointment of a rcsideut physician
to the lunatic asylum iu New Weatminator, Morality requires such an investigation nud atllicted humanity demands
it. 1 know of no field at thia moment in
which your efforts can bo more abundantly rewarded than in speaking for
those poor creatures enduring tho heaviest of nil afflictions nud who know not
how to speak for themselves. With respect to such an appointment neither
politics nor favoritism should for one
moment be allowed an influence.
It should be remembered thnt in all
such inatitti tions there are generally
found two clnsses of diseases, witli respect to treatment! one in which the
brain is affected through the mind, and.
the other in whicli the mind is affected
through the brain. The former may
have a secular,' domestic or religious
origin and while each requires its appropriate treatment; the first two often, to
a certain extent, requires the treatment,
of the third. Now it. is evident to all'
that arc conversant with'the subject
that thia Important field of therapeutics
requires the highest medical skill known
to the profession; the practitioner in
this sphere must pass with equal ease
from the material to the moral nnd front
the moral to tho spiritual. Comparatively
rare is the combination of qualifications
required in tliis higher region of medical
practice; but they can be found. And it
is the duty of every humane person within the province to nae that influence
that ia necessary to secure and employ
them. Permit me to name some uf them.
He should be patient., affable, watchful,
cautious;, firm,. diatijt:$uiBhad for kindness
and sympathy, and naturally take a deep
interest hi relieving human suiTering. He
must, in addition to a large experience
in general practice, havo a special knowledge of tlio anatomy, pathology and
treatment of diseases of the nervous
.system. He ahould bo acquainted with
the treatment pursued in the leading
institutions of th? dny and the result of
such treatment. He Bhould be a married man, a total abstainer from nil intoxicating drinks, and to crown the
whole, a truo christian, No other man
ought to bo appointed to so responsible
a position; I will closo by saying, tho
great Father of his su tiering children is
deeply interested iu the appointment of
a proper person to such nu institution,
and is ready to say respecting any kindness yon can do for thein—Inasmuch as
ye havo dono it unto one of tho least of
theae, ye have done it unto Me,—Yours
very respectfully,     Wm. Kent, M.D.
P. fi,—Perhaps I ought to any that,
though I have a deep personal interest
in tho proper treatment of those poor
atllicted ones for whom the institution is
provided, my professional abilities are
uot in market for sale nt nny price.
Thia statement, with tlio fnct tliat I nm
Hearing 70 yenrs of ngo, will 'shut out all
idea of having professional objects in
view. That I was one of the earliest
pioneers in advocating and successfully
adopting the present advanced method
pf treating nervous diseases, I have published documents to show, ahould any
dispute my right to speak on this alt important subjeot. W. K,

But to any thnt he had always acted

hard question to deal with, and ho had
always thought it a matter for -tho

and no matter whether it wrnt a bishop,

Thero was no question Mr. Duncan
hud dono good in the early days, but
he feared that that gentleman had
lately done much to counteract the
good accomplished. Mr. Duncan had
placed himself above the law. He had
resisted the Indian Act at Metlakahtla,
and had openly stated that he-would
do so, simply because he did not think I fuira of tho Canadian Pacific Railway

disloyal citizens; cites tlm fact that tho
company has never   reported   to   tho
Minister of Railways as reqitjvwt, (tut
haaalwuys done the opposite-, and that
lio accurate account lu\s t>ver been kept
of the expenditure of the  largo  advances mado by tho government.   The
pamphlet says that Mr. Van Hume's
income amounts to about $40,000 to
SuO.000; that Mr. Stephen, tho President, gets   $20,000; aud  Mr.  Angus,
Vice-President,  "Slfi.OOO.    Tho writer
says that additional aid wilt bo inked
by the Canadian Pacific Railway nt the
approaching Beaaion,   notwithstanding
that'll $32,000,00(n--an waa made last

god  unwillingly  from   the  company
have no parallel iu thu history of modern   railways.   The  grades  near thu
Kicking Horso Pass run from 200  ti
225 foot, although it was arranged that
they Bhould not rerch 110 feet.   Tho
route through the Selkirk range is snid
to bo impracticable.   In the abandon*
ment of the Algoma branch, now a total   wreck, the company lost  nearly
$200,000.   No one credits that a nine-
mile tunnel through   tho  mountain*
at the Kicking Horse Pass will ever bo
built, and the road now called temporary is really permanent. - Tho   writer
alleges that $10,000,000 less has Icon
put in thu line than the amount stated
by the company, aud a bonus is to tin

A thorough investigation into the
Nkw Ydhk, Feb. 8.-Mr*», Dudley
wns taken this morning from the station house, where alio hnd been confined during the night, to tho Toombs'
Pulice Court. A number of poople
gathered at the station houso and followed the ofiicor'nnd his charge while
thuy walked to the court house, When
the court house wns reached Mrs. Dudley was cunductad. into the private examination room, whore she remained
until her case was called by Justice
Patterson, Arthur C. Butts, a lawyer,
accompanied the accused tu thu court.
Whon the fact of the presence of the
prisoner became known, lhe hull ofthe
Justico became rapidly occupied, until
entrance whb denied to later coiners.
The enclosure reserved for lawyers was
occupied by a number of these gentle
mon, somo politicians and a swarm of
reporters. Whon Mrs.Dudley entered
the gaze of thu oyes of ovory person in
tho court room was riveted on her face.
She walked calmly to the bar between
thu officer and hor lawyer, and, after
looking for a moment into thu faco of
the Justice, let her oyes full tu the
ground. She looked a trillo tired, after having spent the night in the station house, but her cheeks wero still
rosy and her eyes quite bright.
Lawyer Butts presented the case.
He said he received a dispatch last
night signed 1*. Edwards, asking him
to defend Mrs. Dudley. He went to
the station house and saw Mrs. Dudley. She said Bhe knew nothing about
the dispatch, but desired him to take
charge of her case. He learned by the
morning papers to-day thnt the. dispatch wus n bogus one. J. Pierrepont
Edwards, the British Consul, denied
having sont any dispatch whatever.
Butts Baid he had not been consulted
by any of Mrs,. Dudley's friends, and
did not know what he should do in the
case. Ho continued: "She told mo
bIiu desired me to defend her. While
reserving iny right as a counsellor to
act in thu case or withdraw, I Bhall
endeavor to do what I can for Mrs.
Dudley's.best interest.' For the present iny client will remain mute. She
neither pleads guilty nor not guilty,"
The Court remarked that bIio would
be held to await the result of Rossa's
injury, and remanded her. When Mrs.
Dudley turned to leave tho court room
a smilo played upon her face. Sho
drew her cloak about her and walked
calmly to the room behind the oflicer.
The Houso Surgeon of Chambors
Street Hospital communicated with
the Court this morning, stating that,
on examination of RoBsa'a wound, he
found thnt the ball entered over the
center of the scapula, running in an
upward direction to an inward courso
and passing beneath the skin for four
inches, and that this morning ho Vas
in good condition, having passed a
comfortable night and slept quietly,
suffering no pain and'no uncomfortable
symptoms were developed,
Mrs. Dudley whb plnced in a cell at
the Toombs. She refused to aay anything to reporters.

O'Reilly was interviewed ut tho office

tho shooting of O'Donovan Rossa. Ho
tmid: "I believe I know tho woman
who Bhut O'Donovan Rossa. I think
the circumstances of the cuso warrant
me in suspecting in her the person uf a
British spy, but in giving utterance tu
this belief nnd the reason for it, I want
tu make my position clearly understood.
If thu so called Mrs. Dudley be really,
us she claims, an English woman, and
ahot Rossa because she bolioved it her
mission and duty so to do, nll honor to
her, I would not utter u syllable in
her detraction. But if, on tho contrary, ub I believe, she waa employed
by tho Britiah Government to do this
thing, then woo to the government
whieh employed her. It will then bo

for England thau for Ireland.''

WWS FROM AU PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Washington, Jan. 20.— Iu response to
the house resolution calling for information respecting the participation of the
United States in the Congo Conference,
the President to-day sent the house the
report submitted by tho Secretary ot
State to tho President. The Secretary
saya that some time muat elapse before
the full documentary history of the
transaction can be laid before Congress;
but In viow of the general interest taken
in the subjeet, lie submits a preliminary
report, leaving the transmission of papers
to follow. He then gives the causes and
motives of the participation of this government iu the Berlin Conference, nil of
which aro known to the public. "It
being established," the report continues,
"that the conference was not to have
plenipotentiary functions, uo special credentials were needed to enable Kosson to
attend as the delegate of this government, he boing already accredited as
minister to the Imperial Court. The instructions sent to Kassoii were briof but
precise aa to the exclusion of questions
of territorial jurisdiction. Hy direction
of the President, Mr. Henry Sauford,
whose relation to the International Association representing tho free States of
tho Congo seemed to fit him for the work,
was appointed associate delegato ou behalf of the United States, Ida course to
be governed by the instructions sent
KuBBon. Sauford, not being du officer of
tin's government, was accredited by n
letter addressed ■ by the undersigned to
the Minister of Foreign Afiuira of Germany, as associate delegate. The resolution qt the Houao calls for the credentials
or ptWers given representatives of the
Unit#d States, and the letter accrediting
Sauford will be transmitted with the
rest of tbe correspondence at an early
day. .ft may, however, be here mentioned toat it confers no definite power on
him. It merely recites the proposal of
tlio Imperial govemment that associate
delegates having special knowledge of
the condition of affairs lu Western Africa,
and especially in the region of the Congo,
Bhould aaaiat at the meetings of the conference, and formally accredits Sauford
aa auch associate delegate on behalf of
the United States. Subsequently, the
report says, Henry M, Stanley was invited by the conference itself to appear
aud give information touching tho Congo
region, as to whioh be is admitted to be
tho original and sole authority. Stanley's name appears in the proceedings as
nu associate delegate of the United States,
but lie was not accredited otherwise than
by Kaiaon'a personal introduction.
Neither Sauford nor Stanley have had a
vote in the proceedings, the vottug having been by countries, eaoh delegation
voting as a unit. In fact the voting is
quite a matter of form. The latest dispatches received from Kasson, the Secretary saya, were the proceedings to December 15th, ou which day the conference adjourned until January oth. Up
to tliat time tho Department of State has
no reason.to feel otherwise than satisfied
with the discretion, prudence aud ability
with whieh Kasson has carried out the
instructions given him. Besides limiting
the position of the United States to oue
of commercial interest disassociated from
the question of territorial control, he has
been attentive that uo act ou our part
shall deviate from our consistent national
policy,

Cairo, Feb. 3.—Major Chermside has

London, Feb. 3.—It is stated in diplomatic circles that the governments of

The Pall Mall Gtr.-lte, in a leading

American idji-moc. The leader in this
evening's I'all Mall Gazette, advocating
a |"i!itici.l .-itliancu between Grent Hrituin
and tlid I'niti-d Stales', attracts attention.
"The American republic," the Gazette
saya, "is now ;.t last Iwgtthlltlg to have a
foreign iwilicy. The doctrine of complete
isolation, so loug maintained by American statesmen, lias perished. Minister
Kasson'a presence at the Berlin conference, and hia netivity in the Congo question, must be taken as a portent of
things to come. America will continue
to exert a great and increasing influence
in the work of pacifying Africa. The
republic will, ere long, claim admittance
into the European areopagus wlit-m-ver
dealing .with questions pertaining to interests outside the bouudarlos of the Eu-.
rupcaii continent. England's duty,
therefore, jg to make the most of this
great fact. Blood is thicker than water.
The United States Is Eugtand'a natural
ally. After the federation of the British empire, there will remain for the
British statesman uo task comparable iu
importance to that of the conclusion of
nn alliance between Great Britain and
tbe great republic which sprung from
Knglaud's loins. This alliance," the article concludes, "should lie as close and
aa useful to tho two great English speaking people as that between Austria and
Germany,"

in connection witli the recent dynamito
explosions. The prisoner has beeu pursued several days, and was finally run
down by Police Inspectors .Inrvis and
Aberlino, who have been cou'ducting the

believed by the police .that the man now
under arrest was au accomplice of Cunningham. A brown box, which was
purchased in Whitechapel, and substituted for Cunningham's brown trunk iu
Iub Prescott atreet lodgings, and which
mysteriously disappeared from his rooms
iu Scarboro street immediately after the

a REMARKABLE STORY.
" Sho stopped ncrofls the room in
her pretty aandala, with her scarf
hanging from hor ahuulJers, ns if she
had been going to play her harp, and
opened a littlo bit of a desk, one of
those gimcrock things, all roaowood
and velvet, which were the fashion
then, and took out all her money aud
brought it to me. It was in our own
notes, poor dear," said old Rule, with
a little luugh, "and it came to just
twenty pounds. She would havo made
me take it—forced it upon me. She
did not understand a bit. She was full
of trouble and sympathy, and ready to
give up everything. Ah, I havo ofton
told Miss Vornon since. It was not
want of will; it wns only that she did
' not understand."
MI am suro you tutsan to sjieuk kindly of mamma," said Hester, with a
quick blush of alarmed prido; "but I
don't think it iB so difficult to make bur
understand. Aud what did you do after that 1 Was thoro a run ? And how
did you provide V
Sho did not know what to say ; tho
questions seemed to get into hor throat
and choke her. There was Bomething
else which alio could not understand
whicli must soon be mndo clear. Sho
gavo furtive glances at the old clerk
but did not look him in tho face.
"Ah ! I went to MisB Vernon. Sho
was but a young lady then. Oh, I do
not mean tu say a young lady liko you.
It is thirty years ago. She was oldor
than your pretty young mamma, and
though she had a great share in tho
business she had never taken any part
in it. But she was come of n family
that have ull had find heads for busi-
11038. Look^t Mr. Edward now; what
a clear understanding he has, nnd soos
exactly tlio right thing to do, whatever
happens. Sho waB a little shocked and
startled just at first, but she took it up
in a moment—no man could have done
it better. She signed away all her
money in the twinkling of an eyo, and
saved the bunk. Whon all tho crowd
of tho country folk camo rushing to
draw out their money, she stepped in
-well, like a kind of goddess tons,
Miaa Heater—and paid in almost her
whole fortune, all hor mother's money,
every penny sito had out of tho business, and pulled ua through. I can
remember her, too, as if it had been
yestorday, tho way shestepped in,with
her head held high, and a kind of triumph about hor—something liko what
I have seen in yourself, my dear young
lady."
" Soon in me 'I You liavo never
seen mo with any triumph about ino,"
■ cried Hester, bitterly. "And where
have ynu soen me? I scarcely know
you. Ah, that waa bocauao of Ihe
money bIio had. My mother, with her
twonty pounds, what could she do ?
But Catherine was rich. It was bu-
cauae of hor money."
"Her money was a great deal, but
it was not the money alono. It wus
the heart and courage sho had. Wc
had nobody to toll us what to do ; but,
after ahe c:uno, all went woll. She had
such a hoad for business."
Hester oould not stand and liston to
Catherine's praises, but'she was entirely absorbed in the narrative, It seemed lorriblo to Net thnt she hud not
boon. there to be ablo to step iu ns
Cathorine hud done. But there was
another question pressing upon her
which Bhe had asked already, and to
whieh Bho had got no reply. Sho
shrank frotn'repcaling it, yot folt a
forco upon herself to do so. She fixed
her largo, widely-opoued eyes upon the
speaker, so as to loae none of the indications of hia face.
"WiU you tell mo," Bhe aaid, "how
it was that you had, as yon say, nobody lo tell you anything, no one tit
the head, notiody to Hay what was to
be done ?"
Old Mr, Rule, did uot immediately
reply. Ho made a little pause, and
bhuffled with his feet, looking down at
thein, not meeting her eye.
"Hester,".said Ellen Merridew, who
was passing, and paused on her^ partner's arm to interfere, "why don't you
dance 'I What do yon mean by not
dancing? What are you doing here
behiiid-hticks. I lmvo been looking
for you every whoro."
"I prefer to be here," Hester snid,
shortly; "nevar mind me, please. Mr.
Rule, will you answer me ! I want to
know."
"You asked how it was that wo had
— What was it that you aaked, Misa
Hester ? I um very glad to soo you
so interested: but you ought to bo
dancing, nnt talking to nn old man, us
Mra. Merridew says."
•"I think you must all be in a plot
against me," said Hester, impatiently ;
•'why was it you were left without a
head ? What had happened ? Mr.
Rule," cried tho girl, "you know what
I asked, and you know why I am so
anxious. You aro trying to put mo oil'.
What does it ull mean V
"It is an old story," hi said. "I
cannot tell what tempted mo to begin
ahout it. It was Beoing you nnd your
mother for the first timo. You were
not at miss Vernon's party lust year ?''
"What has that to do with it V criod
Hester. "If you will not tell me, say
ko.   I shall find out tiomo other way."
"My dear young lady, ask tno any-
thiiii/. Don't find out any other way,
I will come aud seo you, if your mamma will permit me, and tell you everything nbout the old days. But I oan*
nut keep yon longer now. And bo-
aides, it would need n great doal of explanation. I *wob foolish to begin about
it here, keeping you out of your natural ainuBemeiit. But I'll come and
tell you, Miss Hester, with pleasure,"
aaid the old man, putting ou a show of
easy cordiality, " any dny you will
name."
"Hester," said another voico over
her head, "Ellen Bays I nm uot to lot
you stay here.   Comb and seo thu sup-
rir-room. And the hall is very protty,
nm not to go without you,"
"Oh, what do I eare for Ellen !"
cried Heater, exasperated. "Go away,
Harry ; go and dunce and annuo your-
self. I don't want yuu or any one,
Mr. Rule—"
But the old clerk had seized his opportunity. He had made a dart at
some one elso at thu other side, while
Heater had turned to r.-ply to Hairy'a
demand, The girl fuund herself abandoned when ihe turned to him' again.
There had been u gradual shifting in
the groups about while she stood absorbed, liatoning tu the story. Sho was
standing now among people who worn
strange to her, and whu looked nt her
curiously, knowing her to be "one uf
tha family." Aa sho mot tlieir curious
eyea, Heater, though alio had a high
courage, felt her heart fail her. She
waa gud to fall back upou her eouBin's
W-fchink you are all iu a conspiracy
against me," the said; but she took
Harry's arm. He never abandoned her
in any circumstances. Edward had
nek^Moken to her, nor noticed her
presence; but Harry never failed.   In
her excitement and disappointment ahe
turned to him with a souse that here
she could not go wrong. As for Harry, to him she was seldom so complacent, he drew her arm within his own
with a Hush of pleasure.
"I know you don't think much of
me," lie said, "but surely I am as good
aa that old fellow," a speech at which
Hester could not but laugh. "I should
like to know what ho was saying to
you," Harry suid.
"He was tolling ine about tho bank
and how Catherine saved it. Do you
know—I wonder— Had my father
over anything to do with it 1" Hester
asked.
Thoy were making thoir way througli
tho crowd at the end of the room, and
Harry's countenance was not expressive. Heater thought tho stare in hia
oyes waa directed to somebody b&hind
who had pushed against her. Sho was
not suspicious that Harry could hide
from hor any knowledge lie possessed.
"That was ages bofore uiy time," ho
said, very steadily. "You -might as
well ask uio nbout tho Flood," and so
led hor on through many groups about
the dour, entirely unsuspicious that he,
too, for whom she had an ntt'ectiouate
contempt, had balked her. Sho allow
ed him to tako lior all over the lighted
rooms which opened into eaoh othor ;
tho hall, tho library, the room blazing
with lights and decorations whicli was
prepared for supper. Hester had never
before been at ouo of thoso great assemblies, and she could not keep herself entirely unmoved by the dazzling
of the lights, the warmth and largeness
of the oiitortainment. 'Asort of pride
camo upon her, surprising her in spito
of hcrsolf, though Bhe was so humble a
member of the family, and subject under tliis roof to slights and scorns, yet
she was a'jVernon, and could not escapo
some reflection of tho family glory
which centered in Catherine. As she
went into tho hall a atill moro strango
senaation suddonly camo ovor Hestor.
She caught sight, in a large mirror, of
hcrsolf stepping forward, her hoad held
high in its habitual poise of Half-indignant onergy, and a certain swiftness
iu her air and movement, a sentiment
uf forward motion and progress,
tho sentiment very familiar to everybody who knew her but wliich brought
suddenly to her inind old Rule's description, "stopping in with a kind of
triumph about her, as I have seen
yourself." " Triumph 1" Heater aaid
secretly within horaelf, and colored
high, with a sensation of mingled pain
nnd pleasure, which no words could
havo described. She did not know
what it meant, but it stirred her
strangely. If alio had beon in those
circil instances she would have acted
liko Cathorino. The story of her mother in her gentle Ignorance, which tho
old clerk thought so much of, did not
affect the high-spirited girl as did tho
picture of the other'putting herself in
the broach, taking upon her own shoulders the weight of tho falling house.
Hestor felt that she, too, could havo.
done tliis. Hor breast swelled, her
breath camo short, with an impulse of
impatience and longing*to have such un
opportunity to show tho mettle* that
was in her. But how could ahe do it I
Catherine wna rich, but Heater was
poor. Iu this way she was diverted
for tlio moment from her anxiety. The
question as to how tlie bank came into
that peril, tho suspicion that hor fathor
must havo been somehow connected
with it, the heat or her research after
the key uf the mystery, faded away for
a moment in a vague, general excitement and eager yet vain desire to havo
it En her power to do something, she
also—n desire which many a young
mind has folt as well us Hestor to have
that golden opportunity -the occasion
to do a heroic deed, to savo sumo otio,
to venture your own lifo, to escape the
bonds of ovory day, onco have a chance
"nf showing what wns in you ! This was
not tho "chance" which Emma Ashton
desired, but it appealed to ovory aenti-
meiit in Hester. The strong longing
for it seemed nlnuist to promise a possibility, us sho walked nlong in a
dream, without noticing Harry by her
sido, And he did not disturb her by
conversation, It wns enough for Hai
ry tn feel hor hand on his arm. Ho
had never very much to sny, and he did
not insist upon Buying it. He was con-
lent to lead hor about, to ahow her
everything, and the sensation of taking
cure of hor was quite pleasant to hia
heart-
When thoy reached the hall, however, they became aware of a late arrival, whicli had a certain effect upon
both. Standing boforo the groat door,
which had heen opened a moment beforo to admit him, Bonding a thrill of
cold night air through the whole warm
succession of rooms, stood Roland Ashton. Hester was aware that he was expected, but not that he waa coming
hore. A servant was helping him off
with his coat, and Edward stood be-
sido him in eager conversation. Edward's countouance, generally toned
down to the air of decorum nnd self-
command whioh.he thought necessary,
was excited und glowing. And Hurry,
too, lighted up when he saw the newcomer. "Ah, there's Ashton I" he exclaimed; while from one of the other
doors Cutheron Vernon'herself, with a
white shawl over her shoulders, came
out from amongst her other guests to
welcome her kinsman. It was a won
dorful reception for a young man who
was not distinguished by eithor ranker
wealth. Hester hnd to hang back,
keeping pcr-ustenlly iu tho shade, to
prevent her companion from hurrying
hor forward into the circle of welcome
faces.
"I felt tho cold air from the door at
the vory ond of the drawing room,"
Cathorine said ; "but though it mnde
ino shiver it wns not unwelcome, Roland. I knew it meant that you had
como."
"I wish my coming had not cost you
a shiver," Roland cried.
"One moment; I must sny 'How
d'ye do'to him," suid Hnrry in Hester's ear; and even he, the faithfulost
nno, left her for a moment to huld out
his lund to the new-comer.
Tlie girl stood apart, sheltering her-
Bolf under thu shadoof tho plants with
whieh the hall was filled, and lookod
on at this scene. Thero was, iu the
whole group, a curious connection with
herself. Even tu Catherine, she, poor
girl ns she wns, was tho guest among all
tlio others who roused the keenest
fooling. Edward, who did not venture
to look at her here, had given her every
reason to beliovo that his mind was full
of her. Harry had put his life at her
dispnaal. Roland—Roland had taken
possession of her mind and thoughts
for a few weeks with a completeness
of influence which he probably never
intended, which, perhaps, was nothing
at all to him, but which it made Hester
blush to romomber. Thoy all stood together, their faces lighted up with interest, while sho lookod on. Hester
stood under a great myrtle bush, which
shaded hor fnce, nnd funked nt them in
the thrill of tho excitement whioh the
previous events of the evoning had
called forth,
