NUMBER 10
The Mall Service.
Our correspondence from tke interior imlicritoH a  widespread   nnd
deep feeling of dissatisfaction with
the present nihil service.   The Rummer service is had enough in many
lections of the country,, where it only
Amounts to fortnightly communication; butthe winter service, when it
means monthly communication, be-
pomes simply unendurable, and it is
■scarcely surprising that a very strong
feeling of dissatisfaction should be
[growing up in the interior.   Thon,
Again, there is the extremely unsatisfactory condition of the ocean mail
tervice.    This may be an old story;
i iiit we cannot help that.    It is one
irgoiitly demanding tho attention of
>f the authorities nt Ottawa.   It is
'imply r monstrous outrugo that the
..vhole of tho mainland mail matter
ihould he dumped down it Victoria
nd detained  there, as frequently
lappens, longer than it ought to tako
between San Francisco and this port,
(it would he quite dillerent if nature
had beon unkind to us and interposed
3,  barrior to tho progress of ocean
,tteamers to New Westminster.    In
Such caso there could bo ro ground
if  complant   against   the   ua.Bvioe-
There would bo nothing for it but to
itibinit to the inevitable.    Hut that
td not our position at all. New West*
ninster is just as good a sea-port as
.Victoria, and there is no natural obstacle whatever in tho way of  the
•lass of steamers employed or likely
.o  he employed  in the ocean mail
■service coming here. Tins is, iu fact,
;ho natural  terminus of the ocean
•nail service for British Columbia.
rht  expression   "mail  service,"  of
ionise,  covers  more  than what  is
Irictly implied hy theso words.    It
s not merely the carriage ot mail
natter,   properly   so   called,   with
hich we are dealing.    That is only
i small part of it.   The conveyance
>f freight nnd passengers is inciild-
nl;  and   when  it comes  to  be a
question of throe or four days' dfi-
ention at Victoria of the pusseii-
;ers and freight, as well ns the mail
flatter, the case must bo admitted
o be a serious one indeed.    Nor is
t a question of time only.    It is
tie of  double freight and  double
xpenso for overy pound of goods
,ii(l every passenger.   It is ii mater of tens of tliousnnds of dollars
[very year.    And has the Mainland
lart of the Provinco no rights?   Is
t not on titled to participate equally
vith  tho  Island  in tho legitimate
Ivantages  of tho ocean  mail   service, in  respect of which large Do-
liiuion subsidies are paid every year?
jVe   want  nothing that is unfair.
V«  ask  not  that the Island shall
mve less and the Mainland more.
VII that  we ask is that the ocean
nail service shall be extended to tho
Mainland.    Let the Island have no
ess, but let tho Mainland have more.
We may be told that this is a mere
legging of   the  question—that,
.his case the  Mainland could not
tave more without the Island having less;   that to extend the ocean
■nail service to this port would be to
ltprive Victoria of the advantages
now enjoyed by having tho Mainland
freight and  passengers laid under
tribute to her.    And this brings one
bo look the question square iu the
face.    Is the trade of the Mainland,
Which is now two-thirds of the trade
of British Columbia, to ho stopped
it Victoria, simply in order that it
nay he made tributary to tliat port
fhe proposition is surely too out-
ageous to be entertained ; and yot,
isguise it as you may, that is really
,'hat  it  amounts  to, and it will be
est to deal with it in all its naked
eforinity.    What is demanded un
clialf of tho Mainland is simply
liis, that commerce, including mails
nd  passengers, shall  not he sub-
>cted to serious detention und an
mount   of   unnecessary   expense
early if   not quite equal  to the
hole cost of coming direct from
San Francisco—that it shall come
right on to its proper destination in
the least expensive and most expeditious way. We desire to be true
to our own interests without being
untrue to any section of the Province. It may possibly appear to
some that we have wandered from
the text. Not so, however. The
ocean mail service runs through it
all. Tliat, is tho spring we desire to
touch, and we would urge the representatives irom tho Mainland in both
branches of Parliament to take up
this important question in good earnest and have a speedy end pnt to
the present anomalous condition of
matters in this regard.       "'--•« -'**

Dr. Fleck, it Drosdefi chemist, attributed the production of pimples and
inflammation on the forehead of smite
persons, in hot weather, to the presence of fat or fatty acids iu the leather lining of hats. By experiment he
has lately shmvn that the fat is contained in all leathers, and, although
smalt in quantity, is sufficient to pro-
luce the result in question, To amid
tho unpleasant effects he recommends
rubbing tho greasy leather with burnt
magnesia.
Hen* Hcnner, at Salzburg, in the
Tyrol, has observed that heating earths
and rooks causes thorn to become magnetic. With various specimens of
baked ami uuUtn«a uiiuita no »»■..> i.-u-
od tho accuracy of the observation,
which is still further confirmed by experiments with several minerals by
two other scientists, The magnetism
of newly-heated rocks appears to
diminish somewhat in time, but some
specimens of slag, perhaps thousands
of years old, wore found to be still
magnetic.
Prof. T .it describes three forms of
inirotio. Tho first, and most common,
is that seen iu the desert, where the
Sunlight is reflected from the heated
layer of air resting upon the sand to
the cyoof tho observer, and irresistibly
gives rise to the impression of a reflecting surface of water at tho point iu the
desert from which! fie rays areprujected. I
A second form is that observed in the
Arctic regions, of which many beautiful illustrations have been given by
Scureaby. The principal phenomenon
is what is called "looming"—distant
objects showing an extravagant increase
of vertical height without alteration in
breadth. Distant hummocks of ica
are thus magnified into immense
towers and pinnacles, nml a ship is
sometimes abnormally drawn out until
it appears twelve or fourteen times as
high as it is long. Tho celebrated
fata morgana of the Straits uf Messina
is of this character. Rocks aro seen
drawn up tu ten or twelvo times their
proper height; and houses, as well as
human beings aud animals, appear
in like exaggerated shape. The most
remarkablo instance of this kind of
mirage was observed in 17-W, when
from Hastings a portion of the French
coast forty or tifty miles away was seen
as plainly as though but a few miles
distant, although ordinarily hidden by
tho earth's convexity. The third and
perhaps tlie most extraordinary form of
mirage is that observed by Vinoe in
1790, in whieh a ship at sea allowed
threo distinct, images—a lower and an
upper one iu an upright position and
an intermediate one in which the object stood inverted.

Miilurdnr Morning, February 4, ItHW,
Railway Affairs.
It ia known that the C. P. R.
.Syndicate; are amongst the competitors for the lower section of tho
ruilway now about being placed
under contract, and in well-informed
circles at tlie capital it is considered
almost certain that the contract will
fall into their hands. The public
havo been aware for some time that
confidential agents of that powerful
company have made careful examinations of the line and termini, and
it has recently transpired that they
have entered into negotiations with
the contractors for tho Emory-Sav-
ona section, with a view to taking
over that contract, should the one
for the lower section fall to them.
It is understood that these negotiations have been so far successful
tliat a basis of transfer has been
agreed upon, and the parties only
await the result of the present tendering. We have no hesitation in
saying that we believe it would be
in the true interest of British Columbia that the programme arranged
by the Syndicate should be carried
out. As railway contractors go,
there is no reason to expect the
work to fall into bettor hands than
those' now holding the contract for
the Etnory-Savoua section. But the
Syndicate are more than contractors
for building the road. Thay own
and must operate it "for ever," and
their interests, therefore, lead thorn
to look far beyond those of the
mere contractor. Their interests
aud those of the Province become ns
nearly identical as possibly ; and it
is, thorofore, both natural and reasonable to expect tliat the consider-
ntion of the permanent interests of
the country shall become a powerful factor in determining their
course of action, both as regards the
kind of labor to be employed aud
tho time, place and manner of commencing aiid carrying on the work.
It is clearly the policy and desire of
the Government to be relieved as
soon as possible of the whole of tho
flurmdian Pacific railway, as a gov-
.mment work. Already ],ave tho„
portions on cue uuit-r cm... ut mo
Rocky Mountains which the Government undertook to construct boen
handed over to tho Syndicate, and
thero is good roason for believing
that the Government are anxious
to bo relieved of those portions on
this side also, so that they shall
havo the whole thing off" tlieir
hands before the general election,
which it is now almost certoin will
take place this year.
Kootenny Representation.
The Colonist believes there is
reason to suspect that it is in contemplation to restore to Kootenay
its two members at the approaching
session of tho Provincial Legislature.
An act now on tho statute-books
provides that at the next general
election Kootenay shall only bo entitled to elect one member. At the
time of the passing of that act
Kootenay had thirty electors. Now
there are just half that number!
It is difficult to believe that the
Government would attempt such a
flagrant outrage. One can easily
understand the anxiety of tlm Ministers to continue to their faithful
little band of a baker's dozen the
power to send to the Legislature two
willing and ever obedient tools, but
it is not so easy to believe them
possessed of so little sense as not to
perceive that such a step would bo
suicidal, that public opinion would
utterly revolt at it. Our contemporary concludes his article as follows :—"Fifteen voters at Kootenay
return two members to parliament
who draw nearly §11000 per annum
from the treasury in mileage and
sessional allowance. Eight hundred
voters of New Wntminstir district
have only the same representation.
Kootenay is a pocket borough and a
rotten one, too. In place of two
representatives it should not have
one. Its proper destiny is to be
absorbed by Yalo." Nothing that
tht party now in power could do
would reinstate it in public confidence'—if, indeed, ifc can be truly
said ever to have been in it. It is
too late for that now. The public
mind is thoroughly made up for n
sweeping change. But although its
day of grace is past, the Executive
still possesses the power to intensify
its own downfall, and it would be
difficult to conceive of an act more
calculated to contribute to such a
result than that apprehended by our
contemporary. Rising no higher
than mere political tactics, it is precisely such a step as an opponent
would like to see taken ; but looking at tho matter from a higher and
more patriotic standpoint, wo must
confess that wo should exceedingly
regret to see such an indecency perpetrated in the name of Representative Government. The time has
now fully coino when a readjustment
of the representation, with a view
to approximating it to the basis of
population, is expected and demanded by the country ; and no Government could with impunity tako such
a giant stride in the opposite direction as would be the restoration of
a second member to a District yielding less revenue than it takes from
the treasury und numbering on its
list of voters fifteen electors, including its two members! Infinitely
more reasonable and just would be a
proposition to disfranchise the District. Probably, under all the circumstances, the proper course would
be, as suggested by the Colonist, to
merge it into that of Yale.
Mtoriiil Jotcs.
Referring to the late deplorable accident, our Victoria contemporary says:
—"Had a steam ferry-boat been provided for the crossing-—ns there should
have been years ago—this tragedy
would not havo been possible. Now
that lives have been sacrificed the
Government will probably make the
necessary appropriation." There can
be no reasonale doubt that had there
been a steam ferry, or any efficient
ferry, the accident would not have
happened, and it is equally undeniable that such a ferry should have
been established long ago. But it iB
a mistake to suppose that an appropriation of public money is necessary
to its establishment, As has been repeatedly pointed out, thero are ready
parties willing to undertake tho ferry
as a legitimate commercial speculation,
without any Government subsidy
whatever.
The defenielosanois of San Francisco has been attracting some attention lately. It often does; but nothing ever cornel of it. High military
authority hasquite recently pronounced
the opinion that thoro is really nothing to prevent any respeotable ironclad sailing through tho "Golden
Gate" and taking undisputed possession of the city, or destroying it, as
might best suit their purpose. Nor
would such a contingency seem to be
too remote to be entitled to consideration. In tho event of a misunderstanding between the United States
««* - i »--*  iwnw;, iiuigiin-
cant as it Is in comparison with the
former, possesses both tho ironclads
and the pluck to perpetrate an act of
that kind. And how much better off
are wc ? San Francisco has some pretense of defensive works; but British
Columbia has none.
Last year the supply of labor on this
coast was not equal to the demand.
The;o is every prospect of the supply
being still further short of tho demand this year. In California, even
in San Francisco, there aro no idle
men willing to work, whore thero used
to be thousands. In almost overy
branch of industry the demand for
labor exceeds the supply. In Orogon
and adjacent Territories the yreat railway works would absorb twice as much
labor as there is in the market, and
hence the schemes looking to the importation of labor from Europe, on
the ono hand, and Asia on tho other.
The subject ia a serious one for British Columbia. With large railway
works and agricultural, lumbering,
fishing, and mining industries all
waiting to be developed, sho appears
to be utterly helpless iu so far as importing labor is concerned.
Our Clinton correspondent raises an
Interesting point respecting the burning of Tom Pool's house on Pember-
ton Portage. Iu a private lotter our
correspondent expresses tho fullest
coiifidenco that had tho authorities
scted promptly and judiciously tho
perpotrators of that terrible outrage
would havo been secured long ago,
and that, even now, would tho Attorney-General only do his duty, the
chief culprit might bo in custody iu
a fortnight! But when tho machinery
of the law was set in motion, it was directed towards criminating ono who had
no more to do with the diabolical out-
rage than the Attorney-General's dork,
and whatever has been done since has
boen done with a single eye to working
out tho false theory upon which the
minions of the law started. Tho powors
of tho law have been strained for the
purpose of compassing tho conviction
of the innocent, whilo the guilty have
boon allowed to go free, and even act
thoir part in weaving webs for entangling the innocent. Taking the case
from first to last, perhaps a more disgraceful exhibition of imbecility and
crookedness has never been witnessed
in any civilized community. And it
has been very expensive, as well as
discreditable.

of them it must come, and to
which one we care not, for we
are sure good times are coming anyway, and have therefore made great preparation

at the present time we are
doing a larger business than

prices will be as low as good
work will permit.
In staple and Fancy Dry
Goods, wo have a good stock,
and for the spring trade we

Recovery of the Bodies,
On Thursday, the ico which had
formed on the sand bar opposite this
city having given way, quite a fleet of
boats and canoes repaired to tho scene
of the late deplorable accident. The
searching party was under the direction of Mr. Jas. Turnbull, aud was
provided with grappling irons and improvised apparatus for dragging the
bottom of tho river. The work was
continued for several hours without
any practical result, when, shortly
after 4 o'clock one of tho dragging
sweeps brought up nt ono haul the
bodies of poor Gillanders and the two
Indians. ThcsH bodies were found as
nearly as could be calculated where
the terrible accident happened, ami in
about twelve feet of wafer. They
wero tolerably limp when taken from
tho water, but became riijjd almost
immediately. Having boon brought
over to the city, those of the Indians
were delivered to their sorrowing
friends and that of Gillander.s was
conveyed to the undertaker's establishment, where, having been denuded
nf clothing and properly prepared, it
was placed ill ft coffin and taken to the
residence of Mr. Turnbull, there to
await instructions froni tho relatives
of deceased, who had been at, unco
apprised by telegraph of tho recovery
of iho body. The search for the body
of Lewis was continued until nightfall, and was resumed yesterday
moruiiigi Alibut noun the body was
found* a little farther down the stream
than tho others. Ou it were two silver watches and §85.75 in money-.
Tho body was convoyed to Hie undertaker's, and after being properly "laid
out" aud prepared, it was placed in a
coffin and taken to Mr. Turhbull's
residence. It is proper that tho relatives of deceased ehould know that
every respect was paid to tlio rouiaius.
Both having been members', 'othYinl
members, wo understand, of the Meth-
idist Church, it was fitting that the
resilient clergyman of Unit denomination should take an active- part nr
these hint sad ollice.*, which he did,
with his own bauds ass'stiii, in preparing tho bodies for their coffins and
arranging for friends tn sit up with
them over night. Indeed no kind
oftjea was neglected that could havo
been performed by the relatives themselves.
The relatives of the late Mr. Qil-
landers, having started for this city
yesterday morning, should arrive early
to-day. Tho probability is that the
friends of the hi to Mr. Lewis will also
arrive here in the courso of the day.
More Chinese.
It is stated that the Oregon steamship Willamette is under charter to
take a load of coal from De'| artnre Bay
to China and bring back a return cargo
of Mongolian workmen for Mr. Onder-
donk. In announcing this, our Nanaimo contemporary expresses the opinion that "the Provincial and Dominion Governments aro derelict in their
duty in not making strenuous ettbrta to
introduce a class nf labor that will bo
nf ultimate and lasting bonolit to tho
Province, and not allow a clans tu bo
Imported, that arc worse than tho
plague Of locusts uf old." Our own
opinion is that nut only liave Iho government rolerrod to been derelict iu
their duly iu this matter, but that a
section nf the Provincial Press has
been equally so, liy being either dumb
altogether, or occasionally giving
utterance to somo wheyey. half-hcart-
od expression on thu subject. It is a
notable fact that the organs of tho
Provincial Government are amongst
that class.
From Clinton.
(Ooites'iondunca of tlio Jti-Ittali Columbian.)
You have, I presume, heard nf tho
burning uf Mr. Hughe's house on Pa-
yillion creek, tho loss being all but
total. To this I wish especially to
draw your attention, from tho fact
that it was ono about the same age ns
that of the late Thos. Pool's on Pom-
bertou portage, a trifle larger, but the
interior similarly ceiled ami divided
into bed and sitting romps with the
same kind of lumber. In six hours
from tho time it commenced burning
Mr. Hughe's house was a total wreck,
nothing remaining but smoldering
ashes, but nut. su hot but that one
could approach close to it. Hams
could bo seen and easily distinguished,

quantity of peas falling from the upper

burned. The logs all fell inwards.
This information I received from eyewitnesses. You will now recall the

made of the remains of Pool's house

Editor Columbian,—It will doubtless be gratifying to tho friends of tlit
two poor men and the Indians who
unfortunately wero drowned in our
river on Saturday last, to have their
bodies recovered in order that they
may receive Christian burial. Ifc is
well known whilt trouble was experienced by those who volunteered to
drag the river in search of tlie bodies
of the unfortunate men, in getting together ropes, Ac.;, for the purpose. I
would, therefore, suggest that a small
sum of money be appropriated by our
City Council, so that at least threo
sets of grappling-irons* each attached
to a small coil of suitable rope bf
sullicient length bo provided, end let
said grapplers be kept at three convenient places in the city, front, say
one at ouch extremity of tho present

Lytton, Feb. 3.—A warehouso and
barn belonging to Messrs. -J. Mclntyre
it A. Stevenson were totally destroyed
by tire hist night. The fire, the origin
of which jb still a mystery, broke out
in tho Warehouse and being fed by a
quantity of bailed hay had gained such
headwaybefore discovered that nothing
could be saved except the horses and
saddles from stable. To save the rest
of tho town was the work to hu done.
A strong southerly wind carried tho
sparks and cinders over tho greater
portion of tho town, occasionally igniting (ho shingles ou nearer buildings.
Pnr a timo it was feared a clean sweep
would bo made, but tho united efforts
and perseverance of both whites nod
Indians with liberal use of buckets,
water mid blankets saved thu town.
Estimated loss; (Mclntyro A Stevenson) fifteen hundred dollars; goods

Editor Cojumbiah, — Iii a recent
number of the SMiniijia .-inn-nam
(that of the 1-ifch ult.) there appears
an account of a noteworthy discovery
near the town of Lexington, Ky. It
jh that of n well built stone wall formed uf cut stono hud with mortar, unearthed in a solid limestone quarry
twenty feet beneath the surface of the
rock from which ton feet in depth of
drift had been previously rcmuvod.
The discovery is in the highest degree
corroborative of thu Mosaic accounfc.of
a universal dolugo; and, moreover,
it proves the basis of the present system of geology to be utterly fallacious;
for tbo wall is iu what is classified as
Devonian, honeath the carboniferous,
nearly at tlie baso of the fossiliferuus
strata. The science of geology (so-
called) teaches that during the Devonian period none of the higher forms
of organic life wero in oxistencc—that
then only the lowest class of vorte-
bral animals had been introduced.
But by the discovery of this fossil
wall it is proven thai previous to the
deposition of this Devonian rock
men were inhabiting tho earth—not
merely as cave-dwellers, but living in
an advanced stale of civilization. It is
in order now that the present system
of geology should tako a back seat on
tho same bench with spiritualism,
atheism and other isms of that ilk.
Those philosophical noddles that during tho last half century have been
devoted to cumbering the pages of
text-bookn with name's nnd terms that,
in tho light of this recent discovery
will loso entirely their significance, can
henceforth be directed In thu accomplishment of some useful labor; and
thoso sciontil'c divines that have
been racking their brajiiB transforming
the historical portions of the Bible into
ingenious allegories, striving to bar-
moni/o them with the immutable (/)
dicta of geologists, may now take a
new departure.

In consequence; of the adoption by
the Canada Pacific Railway Company
of a inure southern route than that
previously determined upon, tho aban-
doument nf the Yellowliend Pans, with
tlio lung dolour from the direct lino
wliich would bo necessitated by its
use, is considered advisable, and four
parties were engaged last summer and
fall in the exploration of Iho passes
loading from the Bow river valley
through the Rockies to the valley uf
the Columbia. These posies are four
iu number, tho most southern being
tho
KANANASKIS  I>Af*S,
loading across tho mountains tu near
tho head of the Columbia river, which
thonco flows northward along the
western base uf tho mountains till in
latitude 62" it bursts' through tho Selkirk range and turns southward on its
courso into American territory. North
of the Kananaskis, within a direct
distance of a 100 miles aro tho
TIIIUCII OTHBlt I'ASSKS,
the Vermillion, the Kicking Horse and
the Howse Pass, all commencing in
the valley of the Bow river, or sonic
of its tributaries, and debouching in
the deep ravine of tho Columbia. The
survey of Kananaskis was under tho
charge of Messrs. Hyndman A Ayl-
mer, while Mr. McMillan took charge
of tho Vermillion, Mr. Lett of the
Kicking Horse and Mr. Charles Sprout
of Howse Pass. Mr. Sproat who has
just returned from the survey, has
boon called upon and gives several
particulars regarding the passes, which
will be of interest to the public
TUB HOW3K AND KICKING HOUSE PASSES.
Ho traversed cr.rcfully the Howse
Pass, which is about 100 miles in
length aud has two summits, one on
the east, known as the Bow river summit, and the other at the beginning of
the western descent, known ns the
Howse summit. The pass is quite
practicable, and presents no very groat
engineering dilhculties, although the
mountains surrounding it aro high,
Mount Murchison towering to a height
ni 1-2,000 feet. At tho western foot
of the pass the Colombia river is about
a mile and a half in width. Mr.
Sproat also ascended tho Kicking
Horse pass to the summit. Ho saw
nothing Of (he Vermillion nnd Kananaskis, but owing to tlieir steepness and
the distance to bo traversed down the
Columbia before a western direction
can be taken for Kamloops thoy are
considered inferior to the Howso Pass
and the Kicking Horse Pass. The
last-named is about sixty miles iu
length, but has, on its western slope,
heavier gradients than tho Howse Pass
lias anywhere, and runs through canyons, while the latter takes an easier
course through valleys. Tho approach
from Bow river is comparatively easy.
It is thought that tho western slope
ciiu be descended without exceeding a
grade of ono in titty. Tbo chief consideration in- favor of Kicking Horse
as against the Howse Pass is that its
length frmn a common starting point
in the Bow river valley is about sixty
miles less than that of fchfi TTowoo.
Both [lasses emerge Into tlio Columbia
ravine at within a short distance of
each other.
CROSSING THE SELKIRK ItANQB.
It was at one time supposed that the
only way of getting through thu Selkirk range was to follow the canyon of
the Columbia, round tbo Grout Bend.
Major Rudgors, who had the superintendence of the ivlndo survey in the
Rockies, and . traveresed the ruuto
from the Pacific to the scene of his
duties, claims to have discovered a
vory practicable crossing over the Selkirk plateau by following the ravines
uf two creeks, one flowing easterly
into tho Columbia, and the othur
westerly into tho same river. This
pass through tho Selkirk range starts
within ton miles from the western
termini of tlie Howso nnd the Kicking
Horse Passes, and about midway b\i-
tweon them. It is in almost a direct
line with tlio Kicking Horse Pass and
thu proposed route by the South
Branch nf the Thompson fco.'Kainloops,
ENGINEERS' OPINIONS.
Major Rudgors is deoldely in favor
of the Kicking Horse Pass and the
new route through the Selkirk Mountains, nnd is confident that tho Railway Company will adopt his recommendations. Mr. Sprout himself has
no hesitation in expressing his confidence that this pass will be chosen.
Ou his return trip he traversed the
country from the foot of the Kicking
H;rse to Qu'Appelle, along tho proposed prairie route, and found tho soil
everywhere good, —Globe,

As the use uf eloctricily becomes
more and mure general, tho great importance of some method of storing
the current for future use becomes
more widely appreciated. Since the
announcement of Faure's electrical
accumulator some mouths ago, this
subject has been much studied, and
several storage batteries havu been
produced by eminent electricians. The
must promising apparatus of this kind
is said to be one just described by Mr.
.Henry Sutton, of Australia, to the British Jtoyal Society. It appears, from
information now at hand, that Mr.
Sutton obtained the best results with
a negative electrode of copper aud a
positive of amalgamated lead—that is,
load coated with mercury. These two
elements are placed iu a solution of
sulphate of copper. When a current
of electricity is passed through this
cell the solution is decompiled and
metallic copper deposited on the negative eluetrode, while the positive is
rtorOxidized. When the battery is being discharged the action is reversed,
the copper element being oxidized, and
tho oxide combining with Iho acid
again funns sulphate of oopper. As
the cOpper is deposited in charging,
the solution gradually loses its blue
color, being converted into sulphuric
ncid. It is stated that Mr. Sutton
will not patent his discovery,

REPLY.
Gentleman—
1 have much pleasure in acceding to
your request conveyed to me in your
requisition, that I would allow myself
to be nominated as a Candidate, at
the ensiunji election of a Representative to fill the seat now vacant in the
House of Commons. If I should be
elected to fill this honorable position,
I will give my support to the present
Government, and in doing so, will
trust that my future course of action
may meet with the approval of my
constituents, as it did on former occasions when I had the honor of representing you in the Legislative Council
ot" this Colony. If elected, 1 will advocate the early completion of the
Canadian Pacific Railway.
I will urge upon the Government
tlie necessity of placing the Dominion
Lands, uow'bcld in reserve, in a position so they may be made available
for immediate settlement.
I will endeavor to show the Government the benefit which would be derived from the extension of the Ocean
Mail Service to the Mainland, and to
obtaining greater mail facilities
throughout the Province.
As BrttlSh Columbia has not been
admitted to the benefits of the Washington Treaty, 1 will urge upon the
Government (he justice of allowing an
abatement of Customs duties upon nit
material required for the Fisheries,
and will ask for an appropriation for
the establishing of Hatcheries,
The Agricultural, Manufacturing,
and Mining interests will receive my
most careful attention, and if the formation of a Commercial Federation of
Great Britain and her Colonies, for
their mutual benefit, should come
under consideration, it will receive
my earnest support.
Owing to tbc.transitory state of the
Dominion, many new questions will
undoubtedly arise; in dealing with
these, 1 will sec that the interests of
my constituents are protected.
1 am, Gentlemen,
Your Obedient Servant,
Jaaa J* A. K. HOMER.

of me aa you please. It is work that
I enjoy greatly."
And so, before they retired to rest,
it was agreed that, until the articlo
was finished, Amy should continue to
act as his aide-de-camp
"I shall try not to make you more a
Sriioner than i» absolutely necessary,
liss Summers; for you must enjoy
the glorious weather. An hour in the
morning aiid an hour or two in the
evening will do beautifully. Good
night. I .hope you mil rest well after
your journey and your labors."
Mr. aud Mrs, Dairy in phi indulged
in aundry curtain confidences that
night, add John warned his wife not
to be too sidigume. "I tell you David
is as obstinate as a mule-—ay, as a
hundred mules."
For a fortnight all things went
smoothly, and it seemed as though
Amy bad come north for no other purpose than to assiBt David, so naturally
did every ono tako to the arrangement.
During the. second week thoro was a
great deal of rain; but tho weather
cleared again at the ond of that timo,
and on a glorious Thursday morning,
Mrs. Dalrymplo said at breakfast that
Amy and she wore longing to go again
to tho Falls of Dliivack, and that sho
had respired thai David must spare
his lady help for one morning, as they
meant to take their books and lunch
and spend a whole delightful day out
of doors,
David' felt a little inclined to protest, but'ho only said:
"If Miss Summers wishes to go, of
course I must got on without her."
Mrs. Dalrymple was evidently quite
determined to Jiave her way, so Amy
agreed that it would be very pleasant
to have a whole holiday.
By-and-by they started, and David
began to work, but somehow nothing
went well, and, do as ho would, there
was a constant feeling within him tliat
for him nlso it would be very pleasant
to have a-whole holiday. Then he
began to wonder how far they had got
on their way to the Fall3. One o'clock
came, and .ho had done nothing.
"Confound it all! it's no use—lean-
not work. She is not hero," said he,
and then he stopped and suddenly
burst into a strango laugh. "Sho is
not here!" - repeated he, slowly and
ironically. "Well, upon my word,
this is a strange, state of affairs."
He began to walk rapidly up and
down the room; then he gazed out of
the windmv, and he could seo in the
distance the beautiful woods of pine
and birch which clothed the hill where
Amy was.      -J**
There camo' over hit face a curious,
wistful expression, and half unconsciously he soon found himself on tho
way to join ihe holiday makers. He
bogan by goiu^ jflowly, but the
thoughts that rose ."within him" drove
him faster and faster up the winding
path which led to tho Fulls. He did
not even itop as usual on the. bridge
to mark the rich brown of tlie water
which made audi a wonderful contrast
with the green surroundings mid the
white foam of the eddies. As he
came toward tho top, however, he
began to, think how absurdly he was
acting, and determined to go homo
again. But he was very near a sort of
rough summer house that overlooked
the little valley in which lay Drumna-
drochit, and also commanded a view
of Loch Ness and the hills on the
other side; so ho mado up bis mind to
rest there for a short time, and then
go down without trying to find the
others. .       .   .
It so happened that Amy had grown
tired of reading, and had found her
way to this summer house to enjoy tlie
view in solitude. She was thinking
of him, and wondering if he missed
her, when David suddenly appeared at
the opening. He came in, sat down
beside her, and said:
"I have missed you dreadfully."
Now these words might only mean
that he had not been able to mid his
quotations without her; but they wero
aaid in a low tone with a sort of tremor
in it, and accompanied by a look
which made Amy's heart stand still.
She felt strangely glad to Bee him, but
her only words were, "Did you ?"
Then there was silence for a few
minutes, but it was an intensely eloquent silence, during which their
ipirits seomed to come vory neav to
one another. There came to both the
consciousness that they belonged to
each other.
In the distance was hoard tho rush
of the Falls; beforo thorn waved the
graceful birch trees; afar glistened the
waters of Loch Ness. For one moment Amy felt perfectly happy. As
David gazed at her downcast face, a
great longing came over him to tako
hor in his arms. So terrible did the
temptation become that ho suddenly
started to his feet and said iu a gruff
voice:
"Where 'are the othora ? Why did
you leavo them ?"
Amy rose wonderingly, but even
then she felt that for the future she
would rather hear his roughest tones
than the-sweetest whispers from any
other voice.
In silence they walked to tho place
where Mr. and Mrs. Dalrymple were
encamped on.shawla. As soon us they
came near, David called out with apparent joviality:
"You see, I havo not let you got all
the holiday-making. Why should not
lhare my share?"
"I am delighted to see you so sensible. Have you had lunch 1 No 1
Well, come on; there's something
left."
David's behavior all that afternoon
was very strange, and completely puzzled Amy. Ho had alternate fits of
noisy mirth and perfect silence. During the latter his face sometimes assumed an1 tlnuiuitlly grave expression.
His brother could not understand
him, and occasionally glanced at Amy
to see if there was anything in her
appearance to account for it.
There was nothing special to be
noticed in Amy, however, except that
she looked particularly well and pretty.
But that was ascribed, both by herself
and others, to the beneficial effects of
mountain breezes. Much of it was
really due to tho new interest which
life was beginning to have for her, and
of which to-day, for the first time, she
was half conscious.
It was this, far more than the change
of air, that had given the healthful
glow to her cheek and tho clearness to
her soft gray eyes.
She sometimes watched David curiously, sometimes gazed far away with
a dreamy tenderness in her eyes,
and n smile hovering about her lips,
that mado one forget how firm they
could be,
It was very pleasant idling there on
that lovely day; but tho shades of
evening began to close in, and Mr.
Dalrymple had reluctantly to give the
signal for preparing to go homo ward.
So peaceful were the twilight sounds,
so soothing was therustliugof the leaves
as they passed through tho beautiful woods, that no one felt inclined
to break tho silence which would have
boen perfect but for the distant murmur of the stream, and tho occasional
call of a sleepy bird to its wandering
mate.
There was not very much time for
work that evening, but David seemed
determined to make the most of it.
He had never before been so intent
upon it. Thero was no breaking off
to talk about something else; it was
serious business.
When it was timo for Amy to go he
said, with an almost stern politeness:
"Forgive mo if I am trying your
patience too severely, but I am beginning to be very anxious about this
article, and should like to finish it
soon,"
Amy could not understand the sudden change, but assured him that he
had not nearly conic to tho end of her
powers of endurance.
Next day his manner was the same,
and so it continued until the end of
the following week, when tho work
was nearly finished. True, sometimes,
when Amy had happened to raise her
eyes suddenly, sho had mot his fixed
upon her with an expression in them
that did not seem to accord with his
stern business'-like way of treating
her. Once thoro had been such a look
of misery iu his whole face thai, she
almost asked him what was troubling
him; but beforo she had time to follow this impulse he had resumed his
writing, and her courage failed her.
He had linen apparently out of sorts
ever since that happy yet fatal Thursday. His appetite seemed to have
left him, and he was so irritable with
John that the latter said jokingly:
"I'll never recommend a holiday to
David again. It does not seem to
agree with him."
When this stato of affairs bad been
going on for a week, Mrs. Dalrymple
confided her opinion to her husband—
that ho need not be anxious, as David
was only desperately iu love, and with
the remedy at hand, the illness need
not be mortal; "for," she said, "I
have been watching Amy, aud am
sure she is not indilferout."
John shook Ida head ominously and
said:
"If that be true, now conies the
tug of war. They say love is all-
powerful. I shall believe it if it overcomes David. No wonder he looks
ill, poor fellow. If only some one
would cast out the devil in him, how
happy he might bo iu such a paradise
with such an Eve;   for Emily,  my
dear, my  own  opinio"   in'.fcliat   * my is
becoming out and out beautiful. Now,
don't be jealous,1' said John as ho cm-
braced his wife like a dutiful husband.
On the following Tuesday evening
the article was finished, aud nothing
remained to be done but to verify one
of the earlier quotations. When Amy
had found the place and was putting
the book before David, as sho had
done on the first evening, his feelings
overpowered hiin. They wore alone,
and his self-control gave way. He
seized her hand and presied it passionately to bis lips. Then, releasing
hor, he rose and said iu a low voice:
"Forgive mo, Miss Summers, I
could not help it," and went* hastily
out of the room, leaving Amy in
greater bewilderment than ever.
In a kind of dazed way she put his
papers in order, and then wont upstairs. As she passed Mrs. Dalrymple's
room the door was not quite shut, and
she heard John Dalrymple pay:
"I believe you are right, Emily.
Ho loves her, but—I'd almost bet my
head he'll never propose."
That was all Amy heard; but it was
enough. Sho understood now tho
reason for his strange treatment of
her. It had cansod her a good deal of
unpleasant thought; for she could not
forgot the tone iu which he had said
the simple words, "I missed you
dreadfully," on that Thursday afternoon. Yet, as the days went on, and
his cold, stern manner continued,
doubt had entered into hor heart.
She began to feel ashamed of having
ever thought that he meant what they
had Beemod to convey to her.
At the game timo she could not
help thinking about, him; and now,
the first elfect of those words hoard
by accident was to fill her heart with
joy. For, did they not tell her that
others thought ftp loved her ? It was
some time before she cared to go further than that, but as she untwisted
her golden hair sho stopped suddenly
—the smile died away, and a grave
expression came into her face.
The thought was thin: If he really
loved her, a foolish vow would never
stand in his way. Then she remembered all tliat John had said about bis
brother's obstinacy. But surely love
can conquer that, and than she began
to wonder how much she could dVfor
David.
By and by she said to herself: "Plow
long have I known hiin? Scarcely
four weeks! I must be mad!" Yet it
seemed to her as though sho had
known him always, and had always
been a part of his existence.
Before Amy fell asleep there was a
amile upon her face; so wo must suppose that hor thoughts had gone back
to tho pleasant part of tho speech she
had overheard.
Next day, as there was no work to
be done, it was proposed that they
should take the ton-mile drive to the
end of Glen Urquhart, put Up the
horses, and spend some timo in the
neighborhood, which was said to bo
of surpassing beauty. The wagonette
was accordingly ordered for 12 o'clock.
