Mulurdny Morning, April Id. 1885.
current Events and Opinions
The war in China is tlie poorest
military performance in which
France has for a long time engaged.
China -can never bo coerced by a
mode of warfare which brings her
teeming millions to the front, There
is not onough of Krupp guns nnd
gunpowder available to destroy tlie
number of Ohineso* necessary to
bring the government to terms,
The authorities at Peking can at a
pinch contemplate the killing of a
great many millions of Chinese with
the utmost composure. The British
never made war on the Chinese
. nfter tlie fashion now set up hy the
French. They always struck at
some vital point and held it until
they were bought ofl'. Tliey once
captured Canton nnd refused to surrender it until their terms were
granted. From the custom house
of that city the imperial government derives a large part of its
revenue. It began to feel very
acutely when its i income wus reduced, and conceded, as a consequence, terms that would have been
wholly inadmissible, even after the
slaughter of millions of its subjects
in distant provinces. The French
did bettor when they wore acting in
1859 in conjunction with the English. Then a small brigade of them
under Palikuo made a sudden clash
on Peking, captured the imperial
city aud looted the summer palace
of the emperor. Pence on tlie terms
demanded was soon thereafter conceded. French military talent, as a
rulo, disdains to display itself upon
any but European battle-fields, tt
has often originated the true military policy to be pursued toward
the teeming nations of Asia. It
was a Frenchman who discovered
the method by which India could
be subjugated — forming alliances
with the pretenders who set up
claims to every throne in the peninsula, and afterwards impartially
plundering both parties—but it was
the English who applied it, having
first expelled tho French. In these
distant lands ^this warlike people-
seem to forget their own military
traditions. The kind of war thoy
have been carrying on against the
Chinese on the Tonquin frontier can
never be productive of decisive result--. After routing an army ton
times larger than their own, they
will be confronted with another
.equally strong in three months,
■The Chinese may make poor sol-
idiers, There is a sort of grotesque
ibut dramatic ferocity in their oper-
intions. But thoy are in such overwhelming numbers that no impression in the ordinary course of warfare can be made on them. So
-.inefficient have been the operations
-of the French that many supposed
that there wus something behind
.either of a general or private character. Tho question that naturally
presented itself was, Were the
Frenoh, under pretense of war with
China, massing troops and ships of
war in the Orient with it view of
assisting Russia in some movement
not yet developed; or was some
French general making a .good
thing? Bazaino carried u;i a siego
for two years against tho open town
of Pueblo in Mexico. There was
not a dny from the time he sat down
bofore it that he could not have
taken it with ease. But for all
that .he kept on digging his parallels and erecting his bastions—in
short, enacting a drama of war, instead of really prosecuting it. But
he liad Vera Cruz behind him and
possession of ull tho commerce of
the country. He was doing more
effective work in the tariff Hue than
he was on tho field of war. Whatever the cause, the French have not
been making war on China with
anything like tlieir usual forco and
ability. Perhaps it was all owing
to the unskillfulness of Jules Ferry.
If so, it was about time that he
should retire, and tliat De Freyci-
net or somebody else should tako
his place.—S. F. Bulletin.

up by his managing clerk.
11. J. Kickman (Howse &■ Kickman)
wus the next witness. He Baid about
thu 23rd June Greer handed him a
memorandum and requested him to
draw up an agreement in accordance
therewith. He wished it particularly
stated that tho money was to be paid
through Mr. McTiernan, Indian agent.
Witness took the memorandum to Mr.
Bole's oflico, and tho clerk (Eckstein)
undertook to draw the document. It
was handed to him in about an hour,
and he gavo it to Greer, who took it
away. Met Greer, ho believed, lhe
same afternoon, and ho said he hud
the document signed and atl right.
Witness was shown tho impeached
document, nnd identified it -aa the one
he had i>i ven to Greer.
Mr. L. Eckstein, Mr. Bole's olerk,
was sworn nnd identified the impeached document as the one ha draw up
under instructions from Mr. Hickman,
He wna not sure whether ho attached
seats to it or not. Nover saw ifc again
till now.
Mr. Samuel Greer was then sworn.
He admitted tho correctness of his
evidence before the house committee
at Victoria; hasheen in this country
IG years; is n farmer and a blacksmith;
resides at Chilliwhack; first became
acquainted with Sninha about the Oth
or 7th of June last; Spinks hnd looked
for land at Chilliwhack, but thought
it too wet; at Iub (Spink's) suggestion
they went to look nt land nt Burrard
Inlet; saw the place occupied by Indian Charlie, and concluded to buy
tho Indians out if we could; the Indian snid he owned the place, and had
lived on the place all his life, and Iub
father before him; he snid the Indian
department had 'given him rights and
protected him, and showed n lotter
from the Indian agent warning people
not to trespass; Spinks said he thought
the Indian hud a claim to the lnnd;
the Indian (Charlie) said he would
sell with the consent of the agent. He
came over to New Westminster to see
the agent; Spinks went to Victoria
and left him (Greer) to complete the
arrangements; McTiernan suid if tho
Indian wished to sell, he hnd no objection; told McTiernan he would have
nothing to do with the Indian except
through him. The Indian came in
answer to il letter from McTiernan to
him requesting him to doso; it was
Wednesday or Thursday the Indian
came to town; went with him toMc-
Tieriian's house; there tteta present
only McTiernan, Charlie nud witness;
McTiernan nsked tho Indian several
questions about the laud, and told him
if he sold to witness he would have
nothing more to do with lhe place;
witness told McTiernuu he wanted no
half bargain, he wanted the Indian to
statu exactly whnt ho would dispone of,
and how much money he wanted; tlie
Bum mimed was $125; McTiernan told
Charlie he had botter go out and nee
Jim, who was very sick ut False Crock;
said hu would givo hiin twu days to go
aud roturii; drew up a kind of lull of
sale uud told McTiernan the Indian
hnd better sign this to bind the bargain, and ho (witness) would pay him
$50, and the balance when a proper
agreement had been exeunt ed; told
McTiernan ho (witness) would hnvo a
proper document drawn nnd leave it
with hiin to got it signud by tho Indian when hu came back from False
Crook; wont tn Hickman and asked
him to draw up a formal conveyance
in accordance with curtain data furnished; in about an hour Kickman
brought the document, and tie (witness) ttink it. to McTiernan. (Hero the
witness was shown tho impeached document, nnd identified it as tlie one in
question). McTiernan and ho (wit
uesfl) read this document over care
fully, nud it was left with MoTiernan
who promised tu witness the Indian's
signature and leave it at the Holbrook
Houso for him; he (witness) gave
McTiernan a cheque for tlie balance,
$75; on Saturday went to Chilliwhack
and returned on Monday; called at tho
Holbrook House nud tho bar-tender
handed him a large envelope which he
said McTiernan had left; opened it and
found the impeached document signed
aud witnessed; remarked to the bar
tender that it was worth thousands uf
dollars to him; met McTiernan shortly
afterwards, who enquired if he had
got that document, to which witness
said yes; invited McTiernan tu the
Holbrook House aud treated liim; he
remarked he hoped witness might make
thousands of dollars out of the business; then went to False Crook and
took possesBiou of the lnnd; the Indian
handed over nll the property; tho wed
the document to Mr, Munnion und
others; Munnion aaid it was all right,
as the Indian agent liad signed it, Tlie
witness wns then questioned nt some
length by the commissioner. He said
he took up the land because Spinks
wanted to make a farm nf it. Hu hud
seen no better land in Britiih Columbia; a good deal of improvement hud
been made on the place; about 70 acres
wus lirst-class land, with not much
timber and no stones; he hud preempted the land. The commissioner
asked: "If the Indian hnd possessory
rights, why did you pre-empt; if ho
hnd none, why did you buy wlmt liu
could not Bell?" Witness could not
answer. Ho snid this wns the first
document signed by the Indians; he
was surprised when he found thut Jim
had signed the document; ho believed
Jim never did sign it as a matter of
fact; believed Jim wns now dead, Tho
commissioner referred to the statement
of witness at Victoria, when ho claimed he had expanded 82,000 ou this
place, and asked how he could reenii-
eile this with his sworn evidence bofore
the court lust year to the effect that he
hnd uo money to pay liis honest debts.
Witness could not given satisfactory
explanation, but daid tlio statement referring to iin pro vein ents was only a
letter, and wns not mnde under outli.
Thu commissioner replied that when
he found u mnn making n false statu'
meat in nn official letter, he would bo
very apt to doubt Iub statement under
oath. He noticed nlso that witness
had estimated the cost of clearing this
land ut $500 pur acre, aud uow he'said
it was excellent agricultural land. Witness said tho land he referred to at
Victoria wns not the snmo spot ns he
uow mentioned,
Mr. McKay, formerly bartender at
the Holbrook House, testified that
some timo lust June McTiernan loft
with him a letter nddresned to Greor,
which he delivered shortly afterwards;
snw Greer nud McTiernan drink at thu
bar, but couldn't Bay whothur it was
before or after this.

gtitunluy Morning, April 18. 1885.
After hearing tlie evidence in tlio
bribery cases at Torohto, tlio jury
returned u verdict of not guilty on
all except one count, and on tlmt
the verdict was equivalent to not
proven. The "brawling brood of
bribers" therefore goes free, wliich
Is a pity, because very few unprejudiced persons can doubt thnt bribery was committed. It is one tiling
to know, however, and quite another
thing sometimes to prove.
It is stated that tbo United
States government would willingly
havo allowed the Canadian troops
for Manitoba to pass through
American territory if the request
had been mnde. If this statement
be true, it seems to us foolish on
the part of tlie Canadian government to have sent troops throuffh
Canadian territory. There is an
unfinished gap in the C. P. R.
north of Lake Superior, and through
this inhospitable region the troops
had to march over nearly 4 feet of
snow, aud they sulVerat great hardships. Besides, by taking the
American route a gain of about 2
or .'1 days would liavo been made.
Fmm telegrams published in another column it will be seen that
the Ottawa government ha3 actually
had the courage to bring forward a
Chinese restriction bill. We hope
it will be passed, and that the poll
tax will be increased from $25 to
at least §50. If the provisions of
this bill are as strict ns they ought
to be, and it is put into operation
at once, wo may become content to
worry along until about three-
fourths of the Chinese now in the
country die out. The balance could
be usefully employed without interfering with industries at which
white men would be employed. At
present we hive decidedly too many
of them.
Our Defenses.
The military authorities at Victoria are engaged in putting tlie
defenses of that city und Esquimalt iu order. This is a very proper
thing, and one against which we
have not a word to say. But what
about the mainland defenses 1 Aro
there no interests on the mainland
worth defending/ From an imperial point of view the capture of
Victoria, or Esquimalt, or both,
would be an event quite insignificant iu comparison with the capture
of the Canadian Pacific Railway.
The force which tirst gets possession
of Burrard Inlet and fortifies it,
will occupy a position of very great
advantage over any other force tliat
may come. In cuse of war the C.
P. It. as a means of transport for
British troops and supplies, would
bo invaluable. This road could be
attacked successfully either at Burmrd Inlet where it terminates, or
at Port Hammond where it strikes
the river. At the present moment
there is nothing to prevent a Rus-
gjph war vessel from reaching either
of these points. It is very important that Vancouver Island should
be protected against any hostile
descout, but it is of still greater importance that the avenues wliich
lead to the Canadian Pacific Railway should be fortified so as to resist any force that may be sent
against them. We hope the military authorities and tin* govornmont will not lot this fact escape
them.
Tiie Royal Commission.
Elsewhere wu publish a very full
report of the evidence taken in this
city before the royal commission appointed to enquire into tho genuineness of tho Spinks transfer. It will
be remembered that under this
transfer Spinks and Greer claimed
a piece of laud lying near Fulsu
Creek, of great prospective value.
In his ovideuce beforo tho houso
committee at Victoria Greer stated
that he had purchased the title of
the two Indians Charlie and Jim,
who had been in occupation for 1!0
years, that ho purchased through
McTiernan, the Indian agent, and
that McTiernan Imd witnessed the
transfer. Tho document purporting to convey this land was impeached by McTiernan, who pronounced his signature a forgery, It
was for the purposes of enquiring
into this document that the com
mission was appointed. ( So far nt
the evidence given here goes, it
must be udmitted there is suoh Hat
contradiction between the parties
that one finds great difficulty in ar
riving at a satisfactory conclusion.
Greer states positively that ho left
the impeached document with Mc-
Tieinan for signature, and received
it back completed. McTiernan
swears as positively that he never
signed the document, and never saw
it until it was handed to him for
examination by Mr. Walls in Victoria. It must be admitted that
the evidence of the Indian Charlie
very strongly corroborates that of
McTiernan. We do not know what
evidence the commissioner obtained
at Victoria and elsewhere, but it is
to bo hoped his enquiry elicited
facts enough to enable him to decide
as to tlie merits of the case. Ono
fact seems to us abundantly established, and that is the utter worth-
Iessuess of the conveyance obtained
by Greer as a title to tho land in
dispute.
From Victoria.
9 BUILDINGS BURNED, AND SEVERAL LIVES LOST
[.special 'fVU's'iim .<> ili<> Columbian.]
ViOToau, Apr. 17.--At midnight a
firu was discovered in the rear of lhe
old Terminus hotel, Johnston atreet,
and a firu alarm was rung by the polico.
Jn a few minutes a stream was playing
uu the buildings on Johnston street,
and soon a second was directed on tlio
flames, The other engines nnd hook
and Udders arrived, and aix streams
were quickly playing on the flames
which burst almost instantaneously far
towards the heavens. The main efforts
wore directed on Johnston street, but
two streams wero shortly brought by
the alleyway from Store st. to the roar
nud tlieir effect was soon felt. The (ire
was now next the Grand Pacific nnd
the cornice nnd windows soon burst
out n mass of flumes. At the Terminus
liutel tlie lodgers hnd scarcely time to
dress and snve a few articles and run,
so quickly did the fire ent its wny
thruugh the wooden structure which
wus dry as tinder. The Haines spread
up the street nud the wooden Chinese
houses were soon burning. The fire
in the Grand Pacific increased' Men
ran tu nll the rooms nnd awakened
lodgers, nnd furniture and effects wore
hurried to tho street. Two streams
were brought up tlie stairwny to net at
the reef, but thu tire had gained guild
hold nnd at oue o'clock it seemed inevitable thnt the lnrge hotel und stores
uud the buildings un Storo and Johnston fits, must become n prey to the
devouring element. The firo increased
in fury und gave promise of extending
iho whole length of Johnston st. The
hook und ladder companies commenced
pulling down the wooden buildings to
stay the progress of the lira further up
street. The main efforts wero now
directed to tho (Jrand Pacifio und ut
1:30 n.m. ihe flumes were under con
trol, though tho uppor story ia badly
burned und water soaking through all
the floors. The Grand Pacific and Terminus uro fully insured, the Chinese
tenements uninsured. Tho loss will
probably be about 855,000. Tho lire
consumed the Terminus hotel aud
seven buildings adjoining. The Grand
Pacific escaped wi. li loss of roof and
upper story antl great damage to furniture. Two bodies have been found in
the ruins, supposed to be guests uf bhe
house, who were unable to escape.   It
is feared there uro other lives lust.	
David Louevflu, a well-known merchant
of this eity nnd a pioneer of 1858, died
this murning iu an epileptic lit.

and parenth of tho children were present at the opening exercises. Mr. J.
C. McLennan was going through the

of mnking a more intimate acquaintance; but by the exercise of a certain

Illustkated War News.—Tho Grip
Printing and Publishing Co. of Toronto
have lately issued a paper with the
above title. It will contain 12 large
pages, and will be tilled with illustrations of incidents and events connected
with the Nnrlh-WesL rebellion. A
very fine double page picture graphically describes the departure of the contingents from the Queen's Own and
Tenth Royal regiments, aud the men
of thu Infantry School, from the Union
Station, Toronto, on which occasion
probably tho largest crowd of poople
that ever assembled in Canadian Territory wero gathered together. This
picture wiil be suitable for fraining.
Resides this the paper will contain a
graphic description of the- battlo at
Duck L;ike, and also numerous other
striking illustrations in connection
with the rebellion, including portraits
of the principal Indian chiefs and the
town of Battleford, showing the besieged garrison. The engravings aro
said to be finely lithographed, and the
publishers promise a really interesting
publication. It is placed at a low
price, and can be procured either from
tho office of publication in Toronto or
from local stationers.

Tub Election.—The result uf the
by-election at Victoria last Wednesday
was the return of Hou. S, Duck by a
majority of 7 over Mr. Williams. The
voto was very small, and it is said that
a groat many friends of the govern
ment neglected to voto becnuso they
were sure of Mr. Duck's return in any
event. Out of a voting power of over
1,200 only 570 votes were cast. Tho
majority is certainly small, but the
new minister is elected all the same.

Mr. McTiorunn was sworn nnd the
impeached document handed to him.
He swore positively ihat he trover signed it; first saw it in Victorin; knew
perfectly well the Indinti had no lnnd
to sell; whon Greer and tho Indian
were at his house Greer produced a
paper purporting to convey the improvements nud chtii'-els from the Indian; this bo signed us witness, nnd
then read it carefully, uud when he
discovered that it purported to convey
n title he said he couldn't sign thnt, ns
the Indinn had no title io give, and
had plainly told Greer so; he took the
documant nnd laid it aside on the table,
nnd Greer wrote another in which no
mention of title was mndo; ill's he
witnessed and Greet took it awny;
witness kept the first document produced by Greer, and sent it to Victoria
to the investigating committee; lie. had
left a letter at the Holbrook House for
Greer, but it wns not the conveyance;
Greer hnd had trouble with some Indians at Chilliwhack, aud wanted him
to write them; he aaid ho would, nnd
would send it by post; Greer said the
post was inconvenient, and he would
take the letters himself if they wero
left nt the Holbrook House; wiiuess
wrote tho two letters, put them in n
large envelope addressed to Greer, nnd
left them st the Holbrook House, the
Indians ut Chilliwhack told him thoy
hnd never roceivod those letters; never
snw the Indinn Jim to his knowledge.
Miss Ella White testified thnt sho
wns present at McTioinau's about the
23rd Juno und snw Greer give a receipt
for 9125 which he paid iu bills. This
ended tho evidence ou Tuesday. '
The court met on Wednesday morning, Mr. Win. Mackie, St., wished to
give evidence. He snid he had preempted this piece of land iu 1883,
erected a dwelling ou it, put down
stakes, and innde sume improvements;
Indians Charlie nud Jim were living ou
his place; while working on the False
Creek road he saw Indian Charlie nt
Granvillo nnd the Indian told him
there was a bud mnn who wanted to
drive liim oft' the place, and pointed
out Greer as the man; witness asked !
Greer what he meant, as the place be- I
longed to him (witness), and he had
staked it oil'; Greer replied, "Oh!
there's mom for both of ub;" ordered
him oil' the place, nnd told tho Indian
not to sell him anything; Charlie suid
he was nfrnid of Greer; not long after-
wurd hu met Charlie who snid lie had
sold to Creer nnd got tho money; went
to False Creek and found Indian Jim
thoro very sick; gave him food and
some money tit different times; Jim
said he wns going to die, aud would
leave his place tn witness and give him
the key of his house; asked him if he
had signed a paper or mado-hismnrk;
he snid he had not; subsequently Jim
went away to Squumish, aud his wife
brought the key of tho house of his
(witness') nephew nnd left it there for
witness; she said Jim was going uway
to die, and hud sent the key to him
according to promise; Greer had caused atl tne trouble with the Indians;
ho had even tried to.get (ho stakes
moved so as to get more lnnd; saw Jim
lust about September or Octobor.
Mr. McTiernan, Indian agent, wub
recalled nud crosB-oxmnlned by Greer.
Ho snid it was some days nfter the 20th
June that tho transaction betweon the
Indinn and Greer took place; ho wns
at the Catholic church con sec rat inn at
Moodyville on the 20th (Friday) apd it
was after that when Charlie nnd Greer
cutne to his office; oould not tell oii her
the dny of tho week or the dny uf tho
month; it was nfter this thnt he left
tho lotter nt the Holbrook House for
Greer to take to Chilli whiiekj t.ho evidence given by Wnlls before the ciiiii-
mitteo wns not correct; he nover suid
tho signature to tho impeached document was his; might hnve suid it wiih
very like his; knew what was iu the
document before he saw it because ho
had read u printed copy of it; whon he
snw the printed copy ho pronounced it
a forgery, for he knew he hnd nover
signed auoh udocument; said the same
thing to Dr. Powell nt Victoria before
seeing tho original; when Walls showed him tho document, witness snid tho
signature was uut his; Walls said hi-
was surprised, because it had been
compared with a large number of his
signatures and they were exactly alike.
Mr. Joseph Muuiiiou was examined.
Hu said Greer hnd shown him n docti-
he saw wns not so long, and on a
smaller piece of pnper, and not such a
dark color; he road it through, aud it
conveyed some chattels and improvements belonging to the Indian at False
Creek; McTiernan's name wns signed
to it ns witness; when Greer showed
me this paper he said he hnd it alt
fixed; Greer was stopping nt his (witness') hotel; be pnid ensh for his bonrd.
Mr. J. C. Henderson testified thnt
he had given Greer a cheque for 975
on GnrroBohe, Green & Co,; it was
dated June 24th, endorsed by Greer
and McTiernan, and was paid at the
bunk here on the SOth. Witness produced this cheque. He first saw the
impeached document some time in

Indian Charlie wns sworn, and Mr.
J. C. Hughofl noted ai interpreter. He
said ho know the place claimed by
Greer on False Creek; it ia not Squumish land; haB nut lived there long, not
as much ub 4 years; when he went on
the land first there was no one tliere;
was on the laud when Greer came;
there wero some potatoes nnd apple
trees on the place; knew Jim; he hud
only a small place, with potatoes on it;
buth he and Jim had their wives with
them; Jim's house was a poor one,
built out of drift lumber picked up;
Greer oame with a pr per and said he
hud got the land and witness had better get off; witness wanted to go to
Alexander, but Greer wouldn't go; was
afraid of Greer, ha talked very loud,
and witness had never seen a man like
Mm before; he finally agreed to come
and see McTiernan nbout the land;
came to McTiernan's office nt New
Westminster; he and Greer and McTiernan were there alone; thought he
signed three papers on that occasion,
but was not sure; certain he signed
two; thought one was signed by a little girl; Greer took that paper, pnid
the money, and went away. The In*
dian was then shown the receipt signed
by Ella White and said he thought
that was the paper Greer took; he was
shown the impeached document, but
laid he never signed that; he was
shown tho document first presented by
Greer, and which McTiernan refused
to deliver because it conveyed a title,
and he said he thought he had signed
that; was sure he signed all the papers
ou the aame day, and that was the
only time he was at McTiernan's; he
got 9125 at tht timo he signed the
papers; $50 was in bills and there was
a cheque for 975 which he took to the
bank and got cashed. On cross-examination tho Indian suid he was sure
it waa 9125 he got that duy, nnd not
950; the money was put un the table
and shoved over to him; ho was the
first person who lived on the land;
had not much idea of the exent of an
acre, but thought his improvements
would scarcely cover an acre.
Mr. Greer said he received no document from McTiernan in the shape of
a bill of sale or conveyance except the
impeached document.
The court adjourned till Thursday,
but sat only a short time, which was
occupied with obtaining some documents and correcting evidence. The
register of the Holbrook House was
produced, and showed Greer's name
entered on the 23rd and ihe 27th June.
Court thon adjourned, the commissioner intimating thnt he would proceed to Granville and False Creek in
the afternoon.

The churchman's Gazette and
the Sects.
Editor Columbian.—Your issue of a
week ago contains a selection from the
Churchman't Gazette, in which certain
Christian churches ure, with scarcely
concealed contempt, called "sects" and
"concerns." Of ceurse, the peculiar
significance of such terms coming from
that quarter is well known. The so-
called "sects" are not of the true church
because, forsooth, they do not possess
the essential marks of genuineness. But
our Anglican high church friends are, in
the very nature of things, unable to
demonstrate beyond a doubt that they
themselves possess the very criterion
which they assume to be a test of genuineness. It is a notorious fact that their
sorest affliction to-day is that the Romish
church utterly refuses to acknowledge
the validity of their ordinations. This
hasheen the caie ever since ths days of
Elisabeth, when Matthew Parker, tbe
first Anglican bishop, was ordained.
Rome branded Parker's ordination at
the time as spurious. This is the missing link, the abiding, unsolved doubt
which is driving earnest though mistaken
souls, In their longing for finality, from
the Anglican churoh to Rome every
year. With this contention between
Rome and the Anglicans, the so-called
sects have nothing to do, scouting as
they do the very notion of succession by
lineal descent to be traced through documentary evidence hack to the apostles,
as essential to tbo validity of a ehurch,
Such pretensions may serve very well
the purpose of priestly pride and arrogance, but would keep the Christian
church in a state of perpetual nonage.
I write this, not in the spirit of controversy, but from a conviction that silence,
when such pretensions are sought to be
foisted upon the public mind, is nothing
lesa than a mawkish deference, Tbe redoubtable editor of the Gazelle should
first settle his controversy with Rome,
which to-day repudiates him as a guilty
schismatic upon his own ground, lest he
sbould be found to be getting credit under false pretences. C. Watson.t

A Friendly Hint.
Editor Columbian.—-Would you allow mo to advise yonr brilliant contemporary, the Mosquito, to c:.press itself
hereafter lu Chinook ? That, I presume,
is a mosquito's native tongue, and it is,
therefore, possible that the insect may
understand it, Quite evidently it does
not understand English.      Shalasis.
Ecclesiastical Chicanery.
Editor Columbian. — Permit me
through your independent co'umus to
notice briefly some editorial comments
on the Rev. ti. B. Allen which appealed
in the last number of the Churchman's
GazHtc, and which I see copied in your
paper of the Uth Inst. Toa disinterested person, acquainted with the ci.'cum-
stavces, it would appear that the editor
ol the Ga\e:.'e at the time of penning
the nrtiele alluded to mutt have been
laboring under a sort of dual conviction
which, reduced to writing wonld be
about as follows: Mr. Allen is absent;
therefore he may be abused with impunity. But the malpractices which he exposed and the truths tlint he asserted aro
obtrusively present and alarmingly self-
assertive; therefore they must be let
severely alone. It will be unnecessary
for me to make auy tedious extracts, as
the article in questiou has had tlie bene-
fit of two publications, and those wbo j
have taken the trouble to peruse it will I
admit that it displays throughout n de-'
tree of flippancy aud irrelevancy ill-
befitting both the occasion and the writ- j
er, and smacking strongly of a politico-
personal tirade in some red-hot ward
campaign sheet. True to his symbolhtic
instinct, the reverend editor compares
Mr. Allen's expose to stone-throwing,
and concludes as follows: "Stone
away, Mr. Allen * ■* * >Ve arc
afraid your stone is a rolling one,
and didn't gather much moss in
New Westminster" (It would' stir-
prise no oue who listened to the Rev.
Mr. Allen's able, graphic nud instructive
lecture to hear tliat "the faithful" had
been called upon to bestow n sori of f-actional devotion upon a new addition to
the symbolistic paraphernalia, in the
shape of a perfectly smooth stone-—without the slightest suspicion of moss—suspended in some prominent place, niid representing the futile attacks of dissent-
ers on "the true church.") But it is
just possible the metaphor might be improved upon: let the editor of the Gazelle substitute for hia "rolling atone" u
snowball, whieh, started by willing
hands increases in magnitude and importance with every turn nnd suiter* no
luck of enthusiastic helpers to bring it
to a crowning consummation, nnd : he
will have ;i picture truer to the facts.
Surely thu worthy, learned nnd reverend
editor of the Churchman's Gazette, cannot
hope to divert intelligent public attention from real issues by venting a little
innliciouB pleasantry upon an absent
brother! PAIR P'.av.

Ottawa, April 13.—The Chinese Immigration Restrietion Bill was introduced
to-day. It provides for a poll tas of
twenty-five dollars on every Chinemau
and Chinawoman entering Canada, either
by laud or water. It limits the number
to be carried by vessels to one to every
ten tons of net tonnage. All vessels engaged in their transport will be subject
to quarantine and inspection, and certificates of, health must be obtained before
passengers ean be landed. The masters
of the vessels are made personally responsible for tho tax if passengers are
lauded before it is paid. Very severe
penalties are provided for a contravention of the aet. The total number of
Chinese that will be allowed to eater is
limited. Chinese residents in the Dominion will be required to register their
domiciles within twelve months after
the act comes in force, Provision is also
made for the prosecution of persons joining organizations or secret tribunal! and

returned yesterday, and simultaneously
with his arrival a rumor was set afloat
that atl arraii -.emeut had been made by <
which a conflict with the half-breeds un-1
der Kiel would be nvoided. It was reported to-day that negotiations looking

DunuK, April 14,—The Prince and
Princess of Wales on their way to Cork
to-day received au enthusiastic reception
at Llsinore' in tbe counties of Cork and
Waterford. Three hundred voters presented an address of welcome at Dun-
gatuion. Wheu the train bsaring the
royal party passed All the vessels In the
bay towered their flags. At Kelmn
Thomas, when the royal party went by,
a black flag was hoisted over the Temperance Hall, but the Loyalists made a
good demonstration. The Prince and
Princess then went to Cu rah more in
Cork. Most of the streets were spanned
by triumph.il arches and a majority of
the houses were adorned with flags iu
honor of the advent of the royal visitors.
Kiniistos, Out., April lo.—The Imperial pensioners being paid to-day, were
warned that in the event of war between
England aud Russia, atl under 50 years
of age might bo called on to serve.
Coiik, April 15.—The Prince of Wales
arrived in this city to dny. The sun
was .shining brightly and tbe weather
all tlmt could be desired for such au
occasion, The railway station and tbe
streets in its vicinity were crowded with
people awaiting the arrival of tbo royal
Sarty. Wheu the train bearing them
rew into the station it wna greeted
with hearty cheers. Au address uf welcome wns delivered and much euthu
sin'n prevails.
Coiik, April lo.—The Prince aud
Princess of Wales did nut repeat tlieir
Dublin triumph in Cork. Everything
within the power of the loyalists to do
wns dune to make the reception a success and the managers of the demonstration remained up most part of the night
to make sura of their arrangements.
When the Prince and Princess emerged
from the railway station aft|r their arrival iu the city, they were greeted with
cheer after cheer. During their progress
a parade of workiuguien and boys ran
alongside their carriage and kept up a
cheering to drown the hisses of the
Nationalists, who lined tbe entire mute
nnd made a continual demonstration.
The conduct of tbe Leaguers uroused
the Loyalists to a high pitch uf euthu-
•Usui, and they made tbe streets roar
with thoir shouts of welcome. The
wonder is that there was uo violence or
biTucli   of  the  peace during the royal
between the Royalists and Nationalists,
whose numbers are equally divided. It
ia thought tbat tlie presence of the Princess and her ladylike graciousness to the
people along the streets was the element
that conquered Irish gallantry. John
O'Connor, Nationalist member of parliament for Tipperary, inarched at the
head of the procession of Leaguers who
closely followed the royal procession,
and sang "God Save Ireland" every time
the Loyalists or tbelr bands started up
"God Save the Queen."
Loudon, April 15,—Military movements in Afghanistan aro exceedingly
difficult at present on account of the
almost uuprecedently severe weather.
Incessant storms of snow and hail on
the mountains, and rain in the valleys,
have swollen the rivers into floods whicli
are impassible by the means of transportation with whioh Gen, Lumsden's
forces are supplied. The weather is exceptionally cold, and this fact tells more
severely on the Britisli officers and Indian troops who are from the south than
upon the Russians.
London, April lf>.—The correspondence between the Home government and
the governments of British Colonies on
the subject of an imperial federation has
come to a satisfactory conclusion. Earl
Derby, secretary of state for the colonies, will soon introduce a federation bill
in parliament.
CmcAOb, April 15,10 a. m.—There
was a savage onslaught upon the speculative markets at the opening this morning, based on a revulsion of the war
feeling, which has been rampant for three
or. four days. ' Early apecial cables favored peace, and this was' emphasized by
an early advance In English consols.
Under thete conditions tbe grain markets

Laiiobb, India, April 15.—Earl Dufferin, British viceroy, arrived here from
Rawul Pindi, He comes officially to
confer with Maharjah Cashmere. The
viceroy was met by a great crowd aud
was accorded a splendid reception. In
reply to an address of welcome, presented by the oflicers of the municipality,
Earl Dufferin spoke officially of the
Anglo-Russian situation in significant
words.. Among othor things he said:—
"Coming from au Important interview
with the "Ameer of Afghanistan, whose
dominion! so far as I have been able to
ascertain, have been the scene of unprovoked attack, it is a great satisfaction to
find the Princes and people of India
ready with one accord to rally around
tbe standard of Great B.-itain, even at a
freat distance from their own frontier,
t is impossible to say how the preseut
crisis will end. If it ends in war, tbat
result will be In spite of the earnest and
anxious endeavor of tlie British government to prevent so dire a result and in
defiance of their most moderate, conciliatory conduct." Recruiting for the British navy continues with great activity.
The admiralty hava invited navy pensioners to volunteer.
London, April 15.—In cabinet council
to-day the Anglo-Russian situation, it is
said, was-,represented as follows: England and Russia have agreed upon a basis for determination ef the Afghau frontier, subject to a satisfactory explanation
bv RiywU of the recent attack on Afghan* According to this scheme, ft is
aaid, Penjdeh will be ceded to Russia,
provided tke Ameer consents.
London, April 15.—The Dally Xews'
editorial this morning Bays the situation
shows a more peaceful tendency, hut
though tho intentions of Russia are good
now, we cannot assume they will be carried out. Events have simplified England's task. If war is to be avoided it
must be shown that the Afghans aud not
the Russians are blamable for tbe recent
collision, aud also that KomarofTs uciiou
is no part of the Russian policy. Then
there must be no further Russian advance. If Russia is as anxious for peace
as England is, peace ought to be secure.
The diBpatch from St. Petersburg alluded
to by Gladstone yesterday carried forward tbe negotiations on tbe frontier
question, which were interrupted by the
Penjdeh affair. He said it iB studiously
conciliatory iu tone.
Varna, April 16.—Vessels of all
nationalities are crowding into the
Black Sea for the purpose of transporting grain from Russian ports before an outbreak shall occur between
England and Russia. Eighty-seven
English vessels arrived in one week.
The Porte has notified the reserves to
hold themselves in readiness for immediate service. The impression hore
is that Russia is seeking to gain time
only to complete preparations to march
on Herat and purchase in America a
few mure vusiels. There is no question mining the Turks, notwithstanding Gladstone's coolness iu the last
war, that in event of a new war Turkey would become an nlly of England.
that the general wus out of danger, he
fult vury hopeful for the future.
Suakim, Apr. 17.—Three columns
of British troops will advance from
Suakim, Handoub and Otno respectively at daybreak to-morrow and marcli
toward Deberet in an endeavor to surround and capture Osmnn Digma's soldiers thure.
London, Apr. 17.— Gladstone, hi the
house of commons this afternoon, stated that the government had to-day received from Sir Peter Lumsden, in reply to their request, an independent
repott upon the Penjdeh incident. In
this it is stated that Gen. Komaroff
was aware as early a date us the 28th
of March of the understanding agreed
upon on March 17th between Russia
and England. According to the terms
of this understanding England was to
deter the Afghans, and the Czar was
to deter his troops from advancing beyond the positions they then respectively occupied until some subsequent
agreement about demarcation of the
Afghan frontier could be reached between the governments. The battle
un the Knslik was fought, therefore,
several days after Geu. Komaruff had
been made aware of the agreement not
to advance. It will bv remembered
that Capt. Votes, the British ollicer
who witnessed tho battle, was assured
by thu Russian ollicer who commanded
in the fight, that he knew nothing of
the understanding of Marcli 17th. Sir
Peter Lumsden's present report appears to warrant the inference that
whatever Gen. Komaroff knew officially about the St. Petersburg agreement
with London, lie kept to himself.
Gladstone, being asked if the government had protested against the recent
occupation of Penjdeh by Gen. Kom-
arn-T, and his establishment of Russian
administration there, answered thnt the
government had not yet made either
occurrence the subject of official communication with Russia. The government was awaiting further information,
the premier said, concerning these
events.

control "iiver tbe iribes iu its vicinity;
tlmt they were in a continual state of
ruvt>lt,aud a source of much uneusi-
ness \n thu Ameer. The latter, he
believed, wmild willingly concede Penjdeh to Russia in the interest of peaco,
as it would alao likely prevent cattle
raiding ou the border. It is now
announced that tho cabinet, alter discussing Lord Dufferiu's message, adopted the same view. [Note.—About

High Class organs.
From tlie Toronto Globe.
Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
the most interesting to lovers of good
music as being thu location of a magnificent collection of instruments. Tbo
erection of this building, which cost
about 91,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had been cramped for room in tbe Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds for their business lias been rewarded. The large number of visitors
who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision mado for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
seen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city uud country musicians.
Right well do the Compnny deserve
the success which they bave achieved.
The present prosperous concern had, like
all great institutions, its day of small
things. It bud its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen yeurs ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties unacquainted with the business. About teu
years go John Wesley, the preseut secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W. S, Russell, superintend
ent of the timing department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since that date the business lias
been booming. A further stimulus wus
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partner. Piano-
making was added to the organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was Increased, until it now occupies a leading
fosition among Canadian undertakings.
t turns out about ZOO organs and 50
Eianos per mouth. These are produced
y 250 hands, wbo receive in wages
about 915,000 ver month. The whole
civilized world is the linn's market, and
they have branches in London and Manchester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in tbe
pavilion are fair examples of thu Company's workmanship. Au upright piano
of burr walnut-is a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, a
square and a square grand. The former
is intended for standing against the side
wall of a room', and is convenient for
comparatively small apart menu. The
square grand is finished un all sides, presents a handsome appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. Tliese
two instrumentB are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick and easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they aro equal to tbe best
American pianos.
The organs mode by the Company are
known almost everywhere. They are
manufactured in all styles, and at all
prices, ranging from 950 to 91,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ which the Company
will exhibit, a double-bank pedal, is at
present at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is expected here at tbe
end of the week. It is arranged to be
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
beeu placed in position to await the
arrival of the big instrument. Tho organs run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to the
parlor favorite. The coses show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty aud skilful workmanship.
The case which secured for the Company
a prise at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is etill much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Coses for parlor organs are chaste in design aud artistic in execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch tbey
are model instruments; while visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases,
[T. R. Pearson k Co., New Westminster, are sole agents for these fine Organs

i REMARKABLE STORY,
"I— must go—confound it! Heater,
for God's sake, haven't you mado up
your mind! Do you know that every
moment I stand here T am in danger 1
Como! come! I will tell yon everything
on the way."
She gavo a cry as if his pressure, the
almost force ho uaed to draw her with
him, had hurt her, Sho drew her
hnnd out uf his.
"I never thought it possible," she
said—"I never thought it possible!
Oh, Edward! danger, what danger?
There's no danger but going wrong.
Stop! niy love—yea, you are my love-
there has never been any one between
ub. If ymi liavo been foolish in your
speculations, or whatever they nre, or
even wrong—stay, Edwnrd, stny, and
put it right. Ob, stay, aud put it
right! Thoro can be no danger if you
will stand up and say, 'I did it, 1
will put it right;' and I—if ymi care
for me—I will stand by you through
everything. I will be yuur clerk; I
will work for you night and day.
There ia no trouble I will not save you,
Edward, Oh. Edward, for God's sake,
think of Catherino. how j-ood ahe has
beon to you; and it will break her
heart. Think of Vernon's, which we
have all been au proud of, which gives
us our place in tho country. Edward,
think of— Won't you listen to mo ?
You will be a mnn dishonored, they
will call you—they will Ihink you—
Edward!"*
"All this comes finely from you," bo
cried - "beautifully from you! You
lmvo a right to sot up mi tlie heights of
honor, and ns tlio champion nf Vernon's. You, John Vernon's daughter
—tho man that ruined the bank."
"Tho man that— Oh, niy God!
Edward, what are ynu saying—-my
father! the man—"
He laughed out—laughed aloud, forgetting precaution?.
"Do you mean to sny you did not
know—the man that wna auch a fool,
that left it a ruin ou Catherine's baud?
You did not know why she hated you 1
You aro the only one in the placo that
does nut. I have taken the disease
frum hiin, through yuu: it must run in
the blood. Come, come, you drive mu
into heroics too. There is enough uf
this; but you've uo honor to stand
upon, Hester; we are in the same bus.
Come along with me now."
Hester felt that she hnd been
stricken to the heart. She drew away
from him till ahe got tu the rougjt support of the wall, and leaned upon it,
hiding her face, pressing ber soft
check against the roughness of the
brick. He drew her other arm into
his, trying to lend her awny, but she
resisted, putting ber hand on liim, aud
pushing him from her with nll her
force.
"There is not another word to be
said," she cried. "Go away, if you
will go; gu away. I will never go
with vou!   All that ia uver now."
"Tiiisia fully," he said. "Why did
you come here if yuu bad not made
up your mtnd? And if I (ell yuu a
piece of old news, a thins* that everybody knows, is that to make a breach
between us- Hester! where ate you
yoimii the other way—tbo other way!"
She was feeling ber way along the
wall to the gate. It was very dark,
and they wero like bImAowb, small,
vague, under the black canopy of the
tree. She kept liim away with her
outstretched arm, which he folt rather
thnn snw,
"I never knew it—I never knew it,"
she said, with sobs. "I am going tu
Catherine to ask her pardon on my
knees.'"
"Hester, for God's sake don't be a
fool! To Catherine ! Yuu moan to send
ber after ine, to stop me, to betray me!
but by—"
The oath never got uttered, whatever it wus. Another figure, tall and
shadowy, appeared behind them in the
opening of the gale. Edward gave mie
startled look, then (lung from bim tho
baud nf Hester which he bad grasped
unawares nnd hurried away toward the
town with the speed of a ghost. He
Hung it with such furco that the girl's
relaxed and drooping figure followed,
und she fell before the third person,
the new-comer, and lay across the gateway of the Grange, half-stunned, not
knowing nt whose feot she lay.
Edwnrd hastened onward like a
ghost, speeding along the dnrk rond.
He wus miserable, but the greatest
misery of nil was to think thnt even
uow, ut tbe lust moment, he might bu
brought buck—ho might bo stopped
upon the edge of this freedom for
which he longed. He wanted Hester,
be wanted happiness, uud he had lust
them—but thoro was still freedom.
Had thero boen only the risks of the
crisis, the meeting of alarmed nnd
anxious creditors, the chanco even of
criminal prosecution, he might have
faced it; but to return again to that
old routine, to take up his former life
wns impossible. He flew along like
the wind. There was still an hour or
more before the train would start.
Would the women gather themselves
togothor, he wondered, soon enough to
send after hint, to prevent his journoy?
As much to avoid that risk us to occupy
the time, which he did not know what
else to do with, ho resolved to walk to
the junction, which was at n distance
of two or throe miles. So strange is
the human constitution, that even at
this tragic and somber moment bo
almost enjoyed the dark night-wnlk,
though it wus that of a fugitive; the
present is always so near to ua, ao palpable, so much inoro apparent than
cither tho future or the past.
He arrived at thu junction just in
time, and jumped into the lirst carriage he cuuld find in his hurry. He
had uo luggage, having left everything
in town—nothing but thu small bag in
lus hand, in which there were various
things which he had meant to show tu
Hester, to urn uso her, distract her
thought* on thy night journey, and
keep her from too many questions.
Among theso things was a special
license, which he had procured tliat
morning in town. He jumped into
tho carriage without perceiving there
wus any one iu it; and it annoyed lum
to see, whon ho settled in tho furthest
corner, that thore was a woman in tho
other. Hut the light was low, and it
could not be helped. Thus shut up in
close and silent company, two strangers, eaeh wrapped in a world of their
own, they went swinging through tho
night, the lights of the stations on thu
road gleaming post, whilo with a roar
und a rush they ran through covering
sheds and by empty platforms.
After a whilo Kdward's attention
was caught, in spito of himself, by a
little measured sob and sigh, wliich
came at intervals from the other corner. Tlie lady was very quiot, but
rery methodical. She put back ber
voil; sho took out her handkerchief;
she proceeded to dry her eyes in a
serious, matter-of-fact way. Edward
oould not holp |watohing theso little
proceedings.    A  few minutes after,
with a start, ho perceived who his coin-
companion was: Emma, going home at
lust, just as she came, uo uno hnving
spoken, nor nny event occurred to
cliango the current of her life. Hrr
little sniff, her carefully wiped-off tours
were for hor failure and for tho dullness of Kilburn, which she was about
to return to, A sudden idea struck
Edward's mind. He changed his seat,
came nearer to ber, and at lust spoke.
"I am afraid, Miss Ashton, you
don't like traveling by night," ho said.
She gave a little start and cry. "Oh,
is it you, Mr. Edward? I thought
when yuu came iu it must be somebody
I know. Oh, I um afraid you must
have seen me crying. I am very sorry
to go away; everybody in Redborough
has been so kind to mo, nnd there is
always so much going on,"
"But in Loudon—'1 Edward began.
"Oh, that is what everybody says.
Thero in always so much going on in
London. That juat shows how littlo
thoy know. Perhaps among the fashionable netB. I don't know anything
about that: but not in Kilburn. It's
partly liko a littlo village, uud partly
liko a great, huge town. "You're not
supposed to know tho poople next
dour; uud then they nro all just nobody. The men como home to their
dinner or tlieir tea, and then there is
au end of thom. Whon ynu aro in tho
best sot iu a placo it makes such a difference. Roland ia vory kind, and I
hnve nothing to complain of, but I
can't bear going back. That's what I
was crying for; not so much For having
to leave, but for having to go back."
"You nre tired of your lifo too, I
suppose /"
"Oh, so I am!   but it can't be helj
ed.   I must go baok to it, whether I
liko it or not."
"Would you be glad of nn alternative?" uakod Edward. He spoke with
a 1-ort of wanton recklessness, not oaring what becuuiu of him.
"Oh!" said Emma, waiting upon
providence, "that is a different thing;
perhaps it would be botter not: I can't
tell. Yes, I think I should, if you nsk
mo. Anything new would bo a blessing; for whore am I to look for anything new? You see, Roland hns his
own engagements; yuu can never interfere with a brother."
It took away her breath when Edward rose from the opposite side whero
he was and came and ant beside hor.
"I am going away too," ho said "I
want change too. I can't bear the
quiet any longer. I want to travel.
Will you come with me f Wo could be
married to-morrow morning und start
immediately aftor—"
"Mr. Edward! good gracious!" cried
Emma. It took away her breath.
This was coining to the point indeed.
"Was this whnt you wero thinking uf
when you naked nio to dance, the
Thursday before lust ? I never thought
uf such a thing. I thought it was
Hester. Goodness me, what would
they all say? Did you know I was
coming to-night? Were you only pre-
tending about Hester? Were you
struck with me from tbo beginning,
nr only just at the last ? I am sure I
dun't know what to say."
"Come with me, that is the best
thing to do," Edwnrd said.
******
Catherine stood upon the threshold
of her own gate; her house still and
vacant behind, tho lampi just enrried
into the vacant place up-siaira, the
wind-jws beginning to show lights.
She stood, herself a shadow, regard- j
lesa of the shadow at her feet, looking
nut iutu the dim world after the other
shadow which went along swift and
silent into tbe darkness. "Edward!"
she cried; but ho did not bear. Hu
had disappeared before she turned her
eyes to tbe otlicr, who, by thia time,
bud raised herself to her knees, und
remained there looking up, her face a
paleness iu the dim air, nothing mure.
Catherino Vernon looked at her in silence. Sbo bad beard tbe girl plead
for herself, aud it bud not touched her
heart. She hnd heard Heater beaten
down to the ground by tho reproach of
her father's shuine, and a certain pity
had moved hor. Rut a heart, like any
ether vessel, cnu contain only what it
can contain. What timu bad she to
think of Hester? what room? Edwnrd
hud been her son, her creed; whoso
proved that ho was not worthy of faith,
oven in Catherine's interest, was her
enemy; everything elso cnuie in a second plncc. lie had stabbed aud stabbed her till the blood of thoso wounds
seemed to till up every crevice in her
boing. How cuuld she think nf a
second? She luuked after him with a
cry of sorrow nud augur aud lovo that
would not die. "Edward!" No doubt
ho could explain everything—he could
tell her how it was, what bud happened, what was tho meaning of it nil.
Only when he was gono, and it was
certain thnt hu meant to explain nothing, did alio turn to the other. They
luuked nt each other, though neither
could see anything but that paleness of
a face.   Then Cathorino said,
"If you aro not hurt, get up and
como iu. I have to ask you—there
aro things to explain—"
"I am not hurt: ho did not throw
mo down," said Hester, "it was an
accident."
Catherine made an impatient gesture. Shu did not oven help the girl
to get up: the disliko of so many years,
raised to tho tragic point by this association with tho must terrible moment
of her life, was not likely to yield in a
moment, to givo way to any sense of
justice or pity. Sho motioned to her
to follow, nud lod the way quickly into
the houso. Tho great door wns ajar,
the stair and passages atill dnrk. They
went up, one shadow following another, without a word. Ill the drawing-room Marshall hail just placed tbe
two shaded lamps and was closing tho
windows, His mistreaa called to him
to leave them ub tbey were, and Bat
Without speaking until, after various
tlittings ubout the room, he went away.
Then aho hastily raised the shade from
the lamp upun hor own table, throwing tho light upon her own face and
tho other. They wero both vory palo,
with eyes that shone with excitement
and passion. Tho likoness between
thorn came out iu the strangest way ns
they stood thus, intent upon each
other. They were like mother and
daughter standing opposed in civil
war. Then Cathorine sat duwn and
pointed Hestor to another chair.
"We aro not friends," sho said, "and :
I don't think I can ever forgive you;
but you nre ynu ng, and perhaps you
nre strained beyond yuur strength. I
would not bo cruel. Will you let me
give you something to restore you, or
will you nol, beforo you speak? for
speak you must, and toll mo what this
means."
"I want nothing,'' said Hestor. "If
I Bhould ho kilted, what would it matter? I recognize now that I havo no
right tn you kindness—if that wus
true—"
"It was truo."
