Gaining Strength.
The friends of temperance will bo
glut] to note the advance of temper-
•nee principles in somo parts of custom Canada. On New Year's Day
(he Toronto Globe, whioh ma; fairly
be styled the most influential newspaper in Canada, published' tlie following in its editorial columns: '"•fe
. suppose that there will be a great
many calls made to day, according to
good old use and wont. New Year
calling may in many cases have degenerated into a fonn, but we have
no word of condemnation or contempt
for it if conducted in a reasonable
and becoming fashion. This, however, is just the very thing which in
too many cases it has not been,
Every one has seen young men going
home quite intoxicated from their
New Year's labors. How could it
be otherwise when they wore offered'
and were expected to take intoxicating liquors at every house visited 1
Wo hope no lady will to-day be so
cruelly unkind as to tempt any visitor to pot a thief into his mouth to
steal away his reason and his self-
respect. Thero is no need for anything in the way of refreshments
being offered. But if ideas of hospitality won't allow the callers to
depart unserved, let them huve
something in the use of whieh they
will uot be tempted to do itijury
either to their bodies or tlieir brains.
They will lire sooner of tho coffee
than of something stronger."
A Royal Appeal.
It is a matter of much surprise to
many people that France should
have been permitted to make war on
Madagascar. The grounds upon
whicli hostilities were undertaken
seem to be neither just nor honorable. Although a fertile country,
of considerable natural resources,
and having a population as large as
that of Canada, Madagascar is no
match for France—in the art of war.
It was hoped that Great Britain
would exercise her power for the
protection of tho islanders, but that
hope has been disappointed. The
present queen is a Christian, and is
said to have ruled with great judg
m.nt and moderation. When it be
came evident tliat diplomatic intercourse could not avert the threatened
war, the queen issued the following
brave and womanly appeal to her
•objects:
This kingdom has been governed
in justice and righteousness, and tlie
way in which I have ruled over it
you have both seen and heard. We
made treaties with foreigners across
the seas; nay, whether we have treaties or not, all foreigners havo received lespectful and honorablo
treatment; and even whan they did
things that grieved us, I have borne
with them from my desire to Bee
wisdom advancing in this country.
All foreigners who have mado trea
ties with us have acknowledged that
Madagascar belongs to muj untl
even tho French acknowledged this
in the treaty th.y made with me iu
the year 1868. Yet now, the French
say: "A third of Madagascar belongs to us." Therefore, I suy unto
yon, 0 my people, that if this country, whicli Hod bus entrusted lo me,
the country where my ancestoia rest,
•nd whore the bones of your forefathers lie buried, is claimed by
others, why then I stand up in defence of tbe goodly heritage God has
given uio. God made me a woman,
but when anyone tries to seize the
herit.ge he haa given mo, and the
country subdued by my ancestors is
disturbed, then I feel strong to go
forth as your leuder j for I should
feel disgraeed, 0 my people, were I
aot to defend the heritage which
God has given me. This is. a
righteous war in which we are engaged. I havo made overy possible
effort to maitain friendly relations;
I have born, and submitted to things
that no one could have expected me
to bear. I am not invading others
nor seeking to destroy others; but I
•m invaded by others, and others
in seeking to destroy me. Fear not,
therefore, seeing that yon havo the
right on your side, for if those who
•re unjustly invading, and claiming
what belongs to another, have no
feu-, muoh less we who are defend-
- Ing onr own, I have all confidence,
therefore, 0 my piople, for the right
ia the weapon with which we are
defending tbis country, and the
issues of war ore in the hands of
God.    ________

John Dull, asking that time for computing Iheir contract bo extended to lst

nnd a bylaw for dividing the municipality

;ia the presont system of taxation in rural

equally with improved laud; therefore,
he it resolved that the members for this
district bo communicated with, asking
them to endeavor to have the municipal
act amended so as to leave it optional
with municipal councils whether or not
improvements be taxed for general purposes, hut still empowering them to levy
a tax on improvements nnd persons to
provide' for protection to life and property; nlso to obtain the re-enactment of

of vouchers in favor of Chinese they had

also, that they had inspected work on

Tiie Slum-} of London.
SATURDAY NIGHT IN THE GREAT CITY.
On Saturday night, says a writer in
the Loudon News, the public houses
and gin palaces tako in one fourth uf
tho daily earnings of the denizens of
tho slums for a ween. Enter iho publio houses and you will see them cram*
tned, Hero nre artisans and laborers
drinking away tho wnt»08 that ought to
clothe their little ones, Horo aro tho
women squandering the money that
would purchase food, for the lack of
which their children are dying. One
group rivets the eye of an observer at
once. It consists uf nu old gruy-haired
dame, n woman of 40 and a girl of
about 10, with a baby in her arms.
AU these are in n statu which is best
describod as "maudlin"-—they havo
finished one lot of gin, and the youngest woman is ordering another round.
It is a great-grandmother, grandmother and a mother and her baby—four
goiicratinns together—und they are all
dirty nnd dishevelled und drunk, except the baby, und even that poor little
mite may have its lirst taste of ulcoho)
presently. It is nu uncommon sight
in these places to see a mother wet a
baby's lips with gin and water. Tho
process is culled "giving the young un'
a taste," and the baby's father will
look on sometimes nnd enjoy tho joke
immensely. But the time to see the
result of a Saturday night's heavy
drinking in a low neighborhood is after
the houses are closed. Then you meet
dozens of poor wretches reeling home
to their miserable dens. Some uf thtm
roll across the roadway nnd fall, cut
ting themselves till the blood flows.
Every penny, in some instances, has
gone in drink. One dilapidated,
ragged wretch I mot last Saturday
night was gnawing n baked potato,
By his side stood a thinly-clad woman,
hearing a baby in her anna, and iu
hideous language she reproached him
for his selfishness, She hnd fetched
him out of a public houso with his
lust half-penny in liis pocket. With
that half-penny ho had bought the
potato which he refused to share with
her. At every'corner the police are
ordering or coaxing men and women
to "move on." Between 12 and lit
is a long procession of drunken men
and women, and the most drunken
seem to bo thoso whose outward ap-
pcarunco betokens tho most abject
poverty. Turn out uf the main thoroughfare and into the dimly-lighted
back streets, and you come upon scene
after scene to tho L-rim, grotusu'iu
horror of wliich only the pencil of u
Doro could ilo justice. Women with
hideous, distorted faces are rolling
from side to side, shrieking aloud
snatches of popular songs, plentifully
interlarded with the vilest expression-!.
Men ub drunk us themselves meot
them; thore is n short interchange of
ribald justs nud foul oaths, then a
quarrel and n shower of blows. Down
from one dark court rings a cry of
murder, and a woman, her faco hideously gushed, makes across the narrow
road, put'juud by a howling madman.
It is only a drunken husband having a
row with his wife. Far into the small
hours such cries will ring here, now
that of an injured wife, now that of a
drunken fool trapped into a den of
infamy, to bu robbed and hurled into
the street by tho professional bully
who resides on the premises. Ai you
puss the open doors of some of the
houses, you ..may hear a heavy thud
and a groan, and then stillness. It is
only a drunken man, who, staggering
up the staircase to his attic, hns missed
his footing und fallen heavily. Spend
any Saturday night you like iu a slum,
and then say if ouo-fcntli ot the
habitual horrors of the "drunken
night" have been catalogued here.
And all theso peoplo who hnve spent
to much in drink are undoubtedly
among the class included iu the description, "the abject poor."

City Finances.
Prom tho auditor's report published in another column it will bo
seon that the city finuiices are in n
fairly healthy condition. The total
revenue received in 18S3 was $19/
163.40, and the expenditure has
been $19,149.46. But the council
of 1883 found a balanco to their
credit of S83.r>.62 at tho beginning
of the year, and they left a balance
of $790,56. The balanco left is
less by §4G.0G than the balanco
found. When we consider tho peculiar cirouuistunccs of the year, tliis
is not a bud allowing. Tho very
respectable sum of 87,339.41 has
heen expended on street improvements and repairs, besides the improvements on Columbia st, which
wero paid for out of the loan fund.
The great flood whicli visited this
city in November was quite unox
pected, nnd caused a large expenditure for which no provision
had been made, Then thero has
been a good deal of expensive work
done on the aqueduct on McKenzie
street, which was found insufficient
for its purpose. From the published
statement it would appear that there
is a balance of the loan still remaining of $339.80. This balanco should
be expended in further improvements on Columbia st., for it was
distinctly understood that whatever
remained over from the agricultural
hall and steam ferry should be so
applied- The council cannot divert
this balance without breaking faith
with the people. It must be admitted by all that there has been a
good deal of permanent improvement made in the city; and although
there may be room to question the
expediency of some of the expenditures, we feel disposed generally to
give the council of 1883 credit for
having done good service to the
city.
Free High Schools.
In the Churchman's Gazette for
the current month we find an article
on high schools. The article begins
hy saying; "We are again threatened with an agitation in favor of
a high school in New Westiniuster."
Now, the agitation for a high school
has been going on for a long time,
and we have never regarded it as a
thing to be dreaded, as is implied
in the abovo quotation. Tho greater
onr facilities for education, the better will it be for tlie country,
unless these facilities interfere seriously with the publio revenue. The
Gazette says: "Onr opposition to a
high school is directed simply
ngainst its gratuitous character."
If that be true, thore is no reason,
so fur as we know, for alarm. We
hftTO nover heard any person in tliis
city advocate a freo high school.
Indeed this is the very principle
that has been publicly condemned,
For several years there has been
a high school at Victoria, established and maintained wholly out of
the public revenue. Tiik Columbian lias pointed out that the maintenance of such an institution there
was an injustice to the province,
nnd especially to the mainland, because the rest of the province was
being taxed for tho purpose of
furnishing free high school education to Victoria and its immediate
neighborhood. Wo have distinctly
objected to this, and have advo-
oated that in all high schools
there should be fees required from
those in attendance. Even in On
tario, where the educational system
is as liberal and perfect as iu any
part of the world, thero are scarce
Iy any free high schools, Fees are
everywhere charged, except iu municipalities where the people tax
themselves to an extent sufficient
to make the school free. What
we have advocated for this city
a government high school where
reasonable fees shall he charged.
nnd those who avail themselves of
the advantages of higher education
will be required to conttibute a
fair proportion of the expense. We
hire also advocated that the high
school at Victoria, and any other
high schools which may be established elsewhere in the province,
should be placed on a similar basis,
We have a great deal of respect for
the opinions of the Churchman's
Gazette, but in this matter wo must
differ es to the propriety of establishing a government high school,
while agreeing that sueh a school
should not he free.
A False- Sley.
It is now about two weeks since
tho government Gazette uiado the
bald announcement that the appointment of Mr. T. S. McGillivray ns
stipendiary magistrate at Port Moody
was cancelled, At tho time The
COLUMBIAN expressed regret and
ventured the opinion that the government hud mado a mistake. Whatever light subsequent events have
thrown upon this mysterimiB affair
hns tended to strengthen that opinion. Beforo the announcement of
Mr. McGillivray's dismissal there
wero many rumors going about. It
wns stated then, and it has been
freely repeated since, that the dismissal was demanded by Mr. Orr,
one of the district representatives,
ut the instunco of n very small
clique at Port Moody. There bus
been no reason given for this de-
maud, and we aro inclined to believe
that tho motive whieh prompted it
was nothing moro than personal
spite, Mr. McGillivray had mado
himself obnoxious to Capt. Clarke,
because ho refused to fall in with
his strango views of moral oblign
tion and public policy. Capt Clarke
went to Mr. Orr and asked that tho
obnoxious person be removed. Mr.
Orr promised that it should be
done, and it was done. This is the
story told by Mr. Orr's "friends" nt
Port Moody, and it was told freely
even before tho dismissal had been
made public. The Pott Moody
Gazette intimates that Mr. Orr even
threatened to vote against the government on the settlement bill unless his demand was complied with.
If these reports aro true, Mr. Orr
has b eon guilty of conduct whicli
cannot be excused or overlooked.
So far as we have been able to discover, Mr. McGillivary has been
accused of no wrong doing whatever. His private and official character since he came to Port Moody
are without a stain, It could not be
on moral grounds, therefore, that the
appointment was cancelled. Nor
could it have been on the ground of
policy. If Mr. Orr imagined that
he would gain popularity at Port
Moody by securing Mr. McGillivray's
dismissal ho has made a great mistake. The requisition which we
published last Saturday shows this
very plainly. It shows that Mr.
McGillivray possesses the confidence
and respect of nearly every substantial man in the community, nnd
thut tliese men are not afraid to express their emphatic condemnation
of the action which has been taken
in this matter. But the requisition
ists have also condemned the government, and very properly* Wi
suppose Mr. Orr, as representative
of the district, is, according to custom, allowed to dispense the patronage of the district, and on thin
ground we presume he claimed the
right to nominate whom lie pleased
for stipendiary magistrate at Port
Moody. Bot surely the government
are not bound to obey Mr. Oi
demands when they conflict directly
with justice and common decency
and public sentiment. If Mr. Orr told
tho government that the cancellation
of this Appointment was in the public interest, he deceived them and
grossly abused tho privileges accorded to liim as representative of this
district. The result of Ins misrepresentations has been the dismissal
of an efficient oflicer, tho alienation
of the people of Port Moody, and
the bringing of himself and the government into contempt. Tho government have shown their confidence
in Mr. McGillivray by appointing
him a justics of the peace, but that
will not save them from censure for
having dismissed him without reason
or explanation . from the higher
office. When the present govornmont came into office The Columbian announced thut it would give
them uu independent support so
long as they continued to administer the affairs of tlie province with
prudence and honesty, lu this
mutter wo must say that neither
prudence nor honesty hns been
shown, und although it may he tlmt
the responsibility lies chiefly upon
Mr. Orr, the government cannot
escapo tho censure they deserve.

The Shooting Case.
Chnmberluyne, the colored man who
shot Sue Lee last week,' wns brought
up for heuring yesterday morning. Tho
principal witness wns Albert Aitly,
who belongs to the Cleveland Hotel.
It seems that Sue did washing for the
hotel. He brought a bundle of clothes,
and it iB claimed thnt ouo shirt waB
missing. A dispute arose about this
shirt. Sue appears to have suspected
Ohamberlayne uf taking it. Chnmberluyne and Auly and Sue went
up to Clintnberlayno's room to examine
the Blurts. Chnmberlayne produced
his shirts, showing his name on thein.
Sue doubted the genuineness of the
name, and wnnted to take the shirts
down stairs so ns to compare thom with
hia book, Ohamberlayne refused. A
quarrel ensued, hoth men being very
angry. Sue put his hand in his pocket,
witness said, as if to got a knife or pistol. Before hi could take his hand
out Chnmberlayne hnd covered him
with a revolver. Auly got behind Sue
and told Chamberlnyne not to altoot.
Chamberlaynn turned the revolver towards the wall and tired. Auly then
went out of the room and immediately
heard another pistol shot. Ho called
for help, but nobody responded.
Ohamberlayne and Sue came down
stairs and went out to the street. Dr.
Mclnnes testified that he had examined Sue and found a wouud near his
loft ear, but did not find nny bullet.
He did not consider it safe to attempt
to extract the bullet. Ohamberlayne
was committed for trial at thu next
assises, Wo understand that Sue is
still alive, tnd there is a bare posii-1
bUity that ht mt* rHortr. |

The Wreck or the Victoria.
Tho dcoison of Local Inspectors of
Steam Vessels Hilnian and Frcoman
regarding the loss of tho &teanishjp
Victoria on tho 29th of Novomber last
litis been submitted to Charles C.
Bemis, Supervising Inspector of tho
First District. It will be remembered
that the Victoria, whilo on a voyage
from Nanaimo, B.C., to this port, in
navigating Port Orford channel, struck
upon a reef of rocks and stove a holo
in hor bull. It was thought nt firat
that, with the use of her steam pumps,
sho could bo kept sufficiently free from
water to enable hor to continue on hor
courao. In a short time, however, it
was discovered that ahe wns filling very
rapidly, and the vessel was obliged to
return to Port Orford, whero sho was
run nshoro und the passengers, .crow
and their baggage were landed. On
tho 29th uf November Captain G.
Retchniaun. the master, abandoned
the vessel, as she was in such a position as soon to become a total wreck.
Tho Victoria was 1402.32 tons gross,
and was valued at 8135,000. Her
cargo consisted of 1000 tons of coal
and 40 tons of salmon, and wns valued
at nbout §12,000. The Inspectors hnd
thnt "upon investigation of tho testimony taken, the Victoria had proceeded safely on hor wny without any interruption in her engine department,
and passed Capo Orford at 2:20 p.m.,
November 28th, two and one-half miles
distant. Tlie weather at this timo was
clear, with a light breeze and moderate
swell. The courso was'thon changed
to pass on the hisidu of Orford reef,
and at tho timo already stated the
stoamer struck upon what is (ns close
ns enn bo ostimated from the testimony)
a patch of rocks shown on tho chart to
bo in three and ono-qunrtor fathoms of
wator. Wo hold Captain Reiehmunu
solely blainablo in thu matter of the
loss of the steamer, for ttio following
reasons, which nro substantiated by
tho testimony taken in 'tflir investigation: For going out of'his regular
courso and attempting Cape Orford
channel, whon thure was nothing to
justify him in so doing; for not keeping a proper lookout forward; for not
taking his cross-lieiirinus and placing
his ship in mid channel, as ho should
have done, and for steaming into kelp,
which is well known hy masters to
indicate rocks. To sum up, there waa
everything to loso and nothing whatever to gain by taking tho channel, us
tho result unfortunately proved. For
tho reasons beforo stated wo have suspended tho lioonsu of Cnpti O. Reich-
inanii for the period of cighteoti
months."—8, F. I'hmuele,
ftfiuttl Cout liUd'Cofe
It cannot-be supposed that indisposing of tho coi^l lauds, tho government relinquished ihe right to future
taxation in nny t--vni, whether by royalty, annual Huennu-or the imposition
of an ad ealurem tax, nnd hence, it
mattera not which method may bu
adopted, thi1 rove-mo of tho provinco
will bo "Vugniented.in proportion to the
increased development of this import-
ant industry. Mr, Dunsmuir displayed
Monie ability, and urn a little tact, whon
ho secured the co-operation of his
wealthy California partners. By that
act ho at once created a market for tho
sale of vast quantities of coal, and, of
courso, caused an additional impetus
to tho shipping trade between this
province and foreign ports. It may be
hero mentioned that Mr. Dunsmuir
has a contract to supply Messrs. Stan*
ford & Co. with 4000 tons of coal per
month, which is only a moiety of what
is requirod hy this wealthy firm,, 32,000
tons per month being tho average
amount. It is true theso gentlemen
have coal interests at other places on
the coast, but, the fact that one ton of
British Coiumbin coal is equal to one
nnd a-half of other Pacific coast coal is
now fully admitted, while the cost of
mining in other parts is considerably
in oxcesB of what it is here. Taking
those things into consideration, and
the fact thut Messrs. Stanford it Co.
are now associated with Mr. Dunsmuir
as full partners in the coal beds of tlie
railway belt on the Island, wo have tho
strongest possible ovidonco that hereafter the bulk of tho coal used by these
extensive coal dealers, will  ho taken
from tho mines in this country. Mr.
Dunsmuir'a annual expenses in the
coal trade now foot up tho snug littlo
sum of $560,000. Under tho uow arrangement it is fair to assume that
Messrs. Stanford ■& Co. will require, at
least, 16,000 tons monthly, in addition
to wlmt they now take from our mines,
nud by a parity of reasoning, it is alao
clear that the aggregate demand in the
future, consequent on tlio now order
of things, will he, at least, four time»
what it has been in the post. If it required the expenditure annually of
£1500,000 to place post productions on
the market, it cannot cost less than
$2,000,000 to handle four times that
amount, and to this may be added tho
extra expense of prospecting and opening new mines. Here then wo hnvo
the yearly expenditure in the provinco
of, at least, 02,000,000 from this source
alone, with every prospect of a steady
increase. This money will be circulated from hand to .hand, now industries, heretofore unthousht of, will
suddenly burst forth, tho area of taxation will bo extended, our revenue will
advance steadily, and by good management a Benson of general prosponty
will ensue.—Rttources of British Columbia.

wish to live quiet and orderly. From
one end of the country to tho other,
from,Cariboo to tho sea, in evory town
or settlement is heard thu ono complaint. Whiskey finds its way in
abundance to every rancliorie. In
New Westminstor men woll known to
ho in the business go at large; nt Burrard lulet the mad cries and demon
shrieks of drunken Si\yusli0fl sound
over tho water; at Ynlo there is 110
trouble in obtaining thu "chuin-light-
ning[" while tales aro told such ns this
of tho holl it Causes in tho villages
higher up the river:—A drunken mm
had his father down 011 his hack and
beat hia head ou tho floor; three men
tried to hang themselves; tho wholo
ranchcrio was drunk, and this iu one
day. The chiefs say they nre powerless to stop it, nnd so great is thu evil
that it has outgrown thu ability of tho
wholo country to put an end to it
under tho present, laws. A man np-
plies for a licenso to sell liquor nt
somo wayside house. Ho is at liberty
to hand over for' money bottlo.nfter
bottlo to Chinamen, Kanakas, Half-
breeds, Negroes, in fact to anybody
except a pure Indian. Any man caught
giving liquor to an Indian is liable to
bo tiuod. Now tlie nion who carry on
such unlawful traffic are for tho most
part thoso wlio have uo means to pay
u fino, nnd Booing that if sent to gaol,
they would be an expense to tho country, tho result can easily bn imagined,
Damo rumor has it that more thnn
onco good constables who havo beon
active in bringing tliese reprobates to
justice havo been advised by their
superiors to work with a veil over the
eyes—why? simply because tho prisoners were too many, and cod ioo much.
There is apparently only ono way out
of the difficulty, which will still allow
tho government to inako as much out
of the Bale of licenses, vis;:—to allow
retailers to soil by tho drink only, and
if tho wholesale licenses are well
guarded aud given only to respectable
firms there would be uo trouble from
that quarter. If this fails then try
the cat. Wholesale licenses were intended for merchants only, but it
would not seem ao iu this country.
One instance of abuse, at least, it in
said, lately occurred, Thero were two
men holding or possessing each a small
wayside house; thoy applied to the
government agent, a right man iu a
right place, for licenses to sell liquors
by wholesale. Of course he refused
to grant thein aud at once thoy post
off to a place lifty miles away, and the
resident agent at onco hands ovor the
papers. If this i.i true, doos tho
attorney-general know of it, and is it
allowable for 0110 agent thus to mako
trouble iu another's district!"

Position of Khartoum.
THE MAHDl'S PROPHECY AND MOVEMENTS.
A telegram from Cairo announced
that El Mahdi and his forces are advancing from El Obeid and aro ex
peeled to reach Khartoum in ten days.
Khartoum is naturally marked out by
its situation as the capital nf the Soudan. Built in the angle formed by tho
junction of the Blue nud White Nilos,
tho meeting point of the roads from
Dungola and Egypt on the north-west
and north, from Suiiklin nud Berber
on the north-oast, from Dnrfur on tho
west,, from Kordofan, Seminar, and
the Equittorial Provinco on the south,
it i.i Uio commercial centre of the wholo
legion,-and has evor sinco the conquest
of the country by Egypt been tho chief
sent of Egyptian power and the residence of tho Governor-General of the
Soudan. Tho town, near which are
some of the ruins of tho timo of the
I'haraohs, is built along the left banl
of tho Blue Nile, while tho White Nile
in its rear, in a wide, barren, and
stoneless plain, and protected by dykes
against inundation from the two rivers.
If, is 1,400 feet nbovo,the sea and haa
some 50,000 inhabitants, of whom
about' two-thirda are slaves, for Khartoum was at ono time tho headquarters
of tliat iniquitous traffic, which, after
the subjugation of tho country by
Egypt, rapidly supplanted tho legitimate trade in ivory and other natural
products of the Soudan, and is tliej/bns
et oritjo mali in all llio wars which
have sn constantly disturbed the country. Khartoum is, from a military
point of view, a position of great
strength. It is protected by five de-
fatched ehrtluvork fort?, but theso are
sniil to ho weakly armed, and its most
ellicient protection aro tho broad rivers
on either aide of it. A force coming
from the west would find it a matter
of great difficulty to cross the White
Nile iu tho face of an enemy; and,
even if that movement were affected,
the approach to thu town across a plain
which affords no shelter whatever to
an attacking force would bo a vory
difficult operation iu face of defenders
united with weapons of precision. The
garrison of Khartoum is estimated at
4,000 men, all thus armed, lt is true
that tho Mahdi, since tho capture of
Obeid, must have n good many weapons of precision himself, but his
troops nro said, whether from fanaticism or ignorance, to bo averse to using
thom, Colonel Stewart, writing from
Khartoum on Fobruary 20, soon after
the fall of El Oheid, declared that it
was "very improbable tho Mahdi
should venture to Khartoum." In the
courso of Iho spring, however, tho
M^ihdi did venture, but wus easily repulsed. It is likely, therefore, that
after so great a success ho will make
another attempt on tho capital. According to one of Uio Mahdi's prophages ho would ho proclaimed ut Khartoum prophet and ruler of the Soudan
on the 12th of this month, which was
tho beginning of tho new Mussulman
contury of IMD after Hegira. Ho may
not wish to let this prophecy remain
long unfulfilled.
 « . ——.
The Sunset Glow.
Norman Loekyoi- brings tho light of
science to flour on the atmospheric
phenomena which have lately been
surprising aud delighting Europe.
Sunrises and sunsets are tho most ex-
quhiito spectacles which nature affords,
Tho ooloi-a which accompany thom are
enchanting everywhere. Thoy aro no
less glorious iu llyde Park thnn un the
crest of a Swiss mountain. Mr. Lock-
yor toaohea that science has as close
concern with those prismatic marvels
as fancy. The ethereal pomps of the
last fortnight or more are reported to
have derived their wondrous complexion fiom a plentiful diet of pumice
stones, The foundations of the globe
havo boon poured into the air for tho
admiration of Londoners. According
to the view now set, forth, the crowds
that gaze on 11 sight iu the heavens
which Turner himself would not have
dared to portray, were assisting at a
celebration of the obsequies of the Islu
of KVakntou, Aloft in the skies were
its ashes. The sun was escorting them
with an illumination of tho most bewitching funeral torchcB lo their final
resting place in the northern ocean.
It is an amusing story which Dr,
Melorum, watching sunsets in tho Indian seas, sketched in outline mul Mr.
t-ockyor has elaborated, on this basis.
An atmosphere at least forty miles
deep elothea iho earth. An aqueous
vapor in great part composes it, and
fon*£i ihe ruilooting medium. Generally the funis-.-1 tints aro duo to that
aqueous vapor wliich vibrates under
tho nun's rays. According to the
density of the vapor, as it absorbs or
intewepts one color or another, the
light il reflects iii whito, blue, violet or
red. Ordinarily it would havo been
inferred from tho surpassingliiBtrb of
the Buhris*8B and Biihsets during the
last two or three weeks thiil for some
reason the band of aqueous vapor had
thickened"! Had the facts answered
they Would have explained the result.
The atmosphere has beeu submitted to
the thiimhflorew of the spectroscope,
and negatives the theory altogether.
In the period in question tlie dry-air
band is pronounced to have enlarged
at tho expense of the watery. Recent
vivid groons and crimsons must have
traversed an extra length of dry instead uf aqueous vapor. Had meteorological science and the spectroscope
existed in old days, when .thoro wns
neither steam nor the telegraph, inquiries must have paused in utter perplexity in tho presence of these contradictory conclusions. Now tho accelerated facilities for the transmission
of news hnvo accumulated in the briefest interval a mass of evidence which
indicates a wny out of tho scientiflc
dilemma. Meteorologists havo boon
onableu to track Krakatnu in solution
from its original sites in the Straits of
Sunda to thu skies nbovo Java, to Madras and othor points iu Southern India, to the Seychelles and Mauritius,
to the Capo and tho Gold Coast, to
Bnuil, VonoBiieln nnd Trinidad. Ovor
Java there was a pull of black night on
that terrible 28th of August,   Madras
was confounded by a bright green buh
at Bunrise and sunset from tho 8th tu
the 14th uf September. In the Seychelles and Brazil at the end uf August
and beginning of September the sun
had been as pale an tlio moon. Three
months later, about "tho period at
which, with the prevailing ourronts of
the upper air, and in tho anticipated
direction matter floating in tho atmosphere would bo due iu Europe, European skies havo been visited with a
succession uf gorgeous sunrises and
sunsets. Dr. Meldrum's and Dr. Lock-
yer's view is at any rato in agreement
with tho circumstances, und has the
merit of accounting for thein. It is
Baid that the exploded fragments of
Krakntoa and its volcanic routs have
been dyeing European skies as they
shrouded Java. Gradually tho veil has
becomu thinner aud feebler. It hus
ceased to havo power to hide the sun,
or turn its faco palo and silver.' No
longer do tlio sunbeams reach thu
earth blue nnd green and red as in
Ceylon and Trinidad. Yet tbe dust of
thu dead mountains and crater has
beeu here as real as ut the instant of
its liery ejection, if less solid and deep.
Though it could not subjugate the sun
it its strength, it has had force tu prolong its selling and to determine tho
tune uf tlie after glow.
Ppotry will scarcely complain of
science for its habit of weighing the
sun and dissecting the rainbow whon
it introduces the mind thus to the
secret workings of tho labratory of
nature. Nature has often been drawn
smiling as bIio overthrows human
hopes nnd hurries mortals to premature death. Never hns her supposed
combination of eurene remorseless ness
nnd artistic sensibility been exhibited
by a moralizing poet or novelist more
graphically than in the scene in which
science shows hor wrecking islands,
Mid painting tho skies imperial purples with pigments concocted from the
awful ruin. Tha actual moral which
science would deduce for itself from
tho new hypothesis of the construction of the glow of dawn and ovening, is in itself no less poetical than
philosophically suggestive. Like every
fresh stage reached in science, it serves
to confirm the truth of the connection of the universe iu all its parts
and all ita operations. Tiie world is
ono, and its laws nnd its constituents
affect and supplement nnd balance 0110
auuthcr. Within the last dozen years
tho earth seems to have been passing
through an epoch of volcanic perturbation such as strained human fears
beyond all bearing eighteen hundred
years ago. Modern science does not
disguisu the weight of modern physical calamities. In a manner it reduplicates the force of the blow by
depicting it rolling backwards and
forwards nud reverberating from pole
to pole. With all this it must be admitted to take away half tho terrors
of audi disasters by reducing them
within the compass of intellectual
calculations, and tending to bring
them under tha yoke of ono common
law. Mon who quake at the shadow
of an affliction imagined to bo the
work of chance will suffer with resignation thrice the misfortunes, so long
as they can account for them.— Xou-
don Times.
Thoroughness.
A young New ,Eughinder, whose
knowledge was moro showy than deep,
went many years ago to teach a district school iu Virginia.
Among his pupils was n email, rather
dull and insignificant-looking boy, who
annoyed him with his questiotia. No
matter what tho subject under discussion, this hid apparently never could
get nenr enough to the bottom of it to
be content.
Ono warm August morning the
teacher, with 110 little vanity in a
knowledge universal in those days,
began to lecture to tho boys on the
habits and characteristics of n fish
whicli 0110 of (hem caught during recess. He finished, and was about to
dismiss the school when his inquisitive
pupil asked about their gills and their
use.
Tho question answered, others followed concerning tho scales, skin,
flesh. The poor teacher struggled to
reply with all tho information at his
command; but that was small, and ihe
day grew wanner, and the Saturday
afternoon's holiday was rapidly slipping away.
"The schoul will now be dismissed,"
hu said at last. -
'But the bones! Vou havo told na
nothing about the bones!" said ttio
anxious hoy.
Mr Dnsh smothered his annoyance,
and gave all the information he could
command on the shape, structure and
uso of Iho bones.
"And now tliu school"—ho began.
"What is inside of tho bones ?" stolidly came from the corner where the
quiet boy was sitting.
Mr. Dash novor remembered what
answer he gave, but lhe question and
his despair fixed themselves in his
memory. Thirty-tiro years afterward
ho visited Washington nnd entered the
room where thu Justices uf tho Supremo Court wero silting.
Tho Chief Justice, the most learned
nnd venerated man of his dny, wns a
mnn liko St. i'nnl, whom bodily presence was contemptible. The teacher
regarded Mm nt first With uwo, then
with amazement.
"It is the boy who went inside of
the lish bones!" lie exclaimed.
If he had not tried to go inside of
every "fish's bones," ho would never
have attained the lofty position which
he then held.
lt is the hoy who penetrates to tho
heart of Iho matter who ia the successful scholar and afterward lawyer, physician, philosopher or statesman.

beads for his doll's Christmas ornaments.
Tho little party therefore collected
round the nursery tire could woll assume tho air uf wearied artists, and,
like, poor Halcot, sigh for change of
employment,
' 'Have Dudloy and Louio gone down
to the station yet)" Seymour asked,
stifling a yawn.
"Y«; I heard the door close ten
minutes ago; if I were you I would
rouse up and make ready for tea, for
Katie will be here in another quarter
uf an hour. Come, baby, I shall put
you and Pussy down—run and find
Lucy, and ask her to brush out thoso
tangled curls."
"Don't you wish this wore Christmas Eve, Nellie, and that Herwald
were coming too?" askod Hal, as I
turned to leave the room.
"Nay, we wane Katio to ourselves
for one evening at least, we should not
be able to make so much of her if he
were expected too; you know he will
be here by the first evening train tomorrow."
The time had passed quicker than I
had thought, for I had hardly set my
foot on the staira before I heard the
click of the iron gate, and the hasty
brushing of footsteps along tho flags,
and almost before I could fling the
door open, a scarlet-plaid ed figure
sprang into my arms, and laid a cold,
fresh face against mine.
"And is it you, my bonnie Katio;
you, verily and indeed? oh, welcome,
Katie, back to Sunnyside,"
And thon for tho momentI: could
say no more, for the «r--> of the
small strong hands and the look of
the dark eyes brought some ono so
clearly to my mind, that it clouded
even this happy meeting with the
shadow of involuntary pain. It soon
paBsed, however, for who could choose
but smile to see our "freckled lassie,"
as Keith culled her sn beside herself
with joy! For myself I could do nothing hut watch her,
To seo hev hugging the boys, Seymour not excepted, then spring upstairs threo steps at a time to meet
baby peeping slyly through tho banisters, and return wrapping her closely
iu the old red plaid—to hear her laugh
and chatter with Louie, as she fairly
danced through the rooms, trying nil
tbo familiar scats uud peeping into
every corner, and then come slowly
buck and kneel beside my chair with
the tears gathering fast to hor smiling
eyes, and whisper that she could
hardly realize it, that she was so very,
very happy.
"But, Katie," I remonstrated, as I
fuldud back tb* soft brown hair, "bow
is tt that you have not yet inquired
after Bruce? Did you not expect your
old playmate would bo tho- first to
greet you on the threshold, or did
Dudley tell you bow he was engaged!''
As I spoko, the clear snnsie face
grew suddenly overcast, and then
came the quick fall of the lip, that
always showed iu Keith and Katie a
touch of the proud Cameron blood,
ns she replied iu tlie ringing Scottish
tones, every one of which thrilled me
through—
"No indeed, Dudley never mentioned his inline; and for myself, the
full-grown portrait that you drew for
me at the manse was so undesirable,
that I am dreading rather limn otherwise to see the wraith of him whom
you call by the old name."
"And what fearful things has my
mischief-loving sister been telling of
me, may I ask?" said a voice in hor
oar; and Katie, springing to her feet,
became awaro that her old playmate
was standing behind her, his handsome face aglow, half with pleasure
and half with vexed surprise at her
words.
'•Why, if it were my wraith indeed,
you could not look more startled and
scared; will you not shake hands with
tne, or rather suffer me to claim the
cousinly saluto you have just accorded
Dudley, oh, Katie?"
But Katie would m f. and only
standing aloof with a heightened color
extended her hand ungraciously.
"As you will," replied Bruce carelessly, as he held it a moment loosely,
nnd then suffered it to drop; "after
all, I wonder which of us two ia the
most changed, Kitty?"
"Nut I," returned Katie, defiantly;
"but it's ill keeping up tlie old customs, when the old faces and fashions
have died out;" and so Buying, she
moved aside with cumproased lips, and
presently addressed some trilling remark to Louie standing beside her.
Whereupon ensued a must awkward
pause, but though neither of them
speke to the other again for tho next
ten minutes, none the less were thoy
employed in measuring thoir vantage
ground, and each taking stock, as it
were, of each other; and while Katie's
scrutinizing eyes observed fho elegant
exterior and languid manners nf her
ci-devant playfellow, Bruce ou bia side
was noticing with fastidious accuracy
the sunburnt face with its marked
irregular features and iinn compact
figure, nay, even the neat ankle the
looped up linsley dress displayed,
hideously disguised as it was by the
cjurosy village-made boot,
To me this meeting, to which each
had   so  long looked forward, wns es*
Jecially disappointing, for I knew how
iftioult It would be to break through
the  barrier of, reserve raised at the
first  moment by Katie's willfulness;
, of th* two, indeed, it would be dilli-
cult  to  say  which was at heart the
firoudest—the one haughty from van-
ty, the other frum sensitiveness and
excess of will.
Standing there, they were the most
strangely contrasted couple — Bruco
fair to eflienihinoy by thu side of tho
"nut-brown raayde," and she with a
glint in her eye and a glower on her
brow thst gave to her the dignity mid
severity of a Minna Troll.
Dudley wu the Ont to break the
•Ueflce by questioning Katie about her
journey and the incidents thereof, of
which sho discoursed at first with visible reluctance, and then with her old
vivacity; but it was more or less a relief to us all when sho proposed adjourning to her room to prepare for
tho evening meal; and Louie and Dudley followed her to seo after her luggage.
As soon ns the door closed on them
Bruce drow a chair to the fire and sat
down, looking sulky enough, till, seeing my eyes fixed on him anxiously,
his mouth worked with a sore of provoked smile, and be commenced raking out the grate with unnecessary
violence.
"Well, Bis, what aro you looking at
mo for?" he remarked at last, when he
had desisted from sheer weariness.
"Why, to toll you the truth, Bruco,
1 am longing to know what yuu think
of our Katie,"
"Think of her!" ho returned, hesi
tatingly menacing a second attack ou
the. poker, which I stopped by taking
it out of his bund.
"Yes, think of her 1 how slow you
ixe to-night, dear."
"Well, then," he returned, quietly,
after making one or two abortive attempts at whistling, and tilting his
chair back till it hazarded dislocation
df the neck, "well, if I must tell you,
I think her the most perfect specimen
1 havo ever seen of a Scotch milkmaid,
and about as tastefully dressed."
"Bruce!" I exclaimed, all my Cameraman predilections firing my eye
and cheek, "how can you talk so
rudely of any one, and especially of
Katie?"
"What do you ask mo for?" he replied, rather irritably, as he got up
and walked tbe room somewhat aftor
thu fashion of a polar bear in its cage,
only without its polar serenity. "Did
any one ever conceive," ho continued,
"how a civilized girl iu her senses
could put on that odious green linsey
dress ovor a blue stuff petticoat? and
then her boots!"
"Now, Bruce," I interrupted, "you
are too absurd. I ask your opinion of
u girl, and you inveigh against her
clothes after tho true feminine fashion that you men abhor; and were it
uot that I believe that there is somo
pique at the bottom of it, you*would
make me quite angry with you,"
"Pique!" he retorted hotly; "pique!
nonsense, child;" but as he turned to
leavo the room, I caught a lurking
smile at the corner of his mouth, that
mado mo think I wns not so fur wrong,
after all.
I was sure of it ten minutes after,
when Katie re-entered, hor fresh face
rippling with smiles and her figure
looking trim and rounded in her well-
made black silk, and with her hair
knotted up with its bonny ribbons of
blue; for though he cast at her from
time to time looks full of amity, he
never touched by word or deed upon
the courteous reserve she seemed to
have established between them,'but
waited scrupulously for her first addressing him, before lie made the least
advance
Strange as this sudden coolness waB
between the two compared to the
warm cordiality shown by Katie to tho
rest of tho family, yet so well was it
globed over by outward civility that
it wus more felt thnn seen, and with
tho exception of the slight rupture at
the lirst moment of meeting, nothing
disturbed, in appearance ut least, tho
general harmony of tho evening.
Wo had consented, out of pity for
our wearied traveler, to break up the
circle tbat night earlier thau was our
wont, that sho as well as the rest of
us might bu fresh ou tho morrow for
Herwuld and Chriutmas-ove; but this
prudent resolution was frustrated as
far as Katie and I were concerned,
for happening to kneel down a minuto
ou tho rug to exchange a fow goodnight observations in front of the
crackling logs, did Katio then and
thero, as was her custom at the manse,
draw mo into such a long and tangled
skein of talk by artful questioning
and bright alluring answer, that lung
after Loo had ceased her few sleepy
interjections, did ws sit hugged up m
our long hair, growing warmer and
more electric every second, talking of
Keith and Lucy, till the midnight
chimes hushed us with a start and
sent mo back to my chilled room shivering with very shame,
When I awoke tho next morning,
which was not till long past my usual
hour, and then very heavy and drowsy,
I grew conscious hy degrees that something very unusual was taking place
above aud around me.
Boys' voices sounding shrilly in the
keen morning air, scudding feet overhead, and-then heavy boots scuttling
along tho passages; followed by the
picking sound of some instrument
grating harshly on tlm atones outside;
with tho last sound camo doubt, and
then conviction, and I ran to the
window to seo for myself that tho
boys' hopes were realized, and snow
and Christipus had really comu together.
And so they had; all night long had
tho busy workers in Seymour's pretty
pretty title ceaselessly and noiselessly
striven, and the result was like mugic
Far and wide ovor the country
glimmered tho fairy pall, while every
break and hedge-row bloomed l hick with
frozuti blossoms.
The stubbly fields in front, yesterday so black and bare, now lay smooth
as an Alpine glacier underneath the
blue-gray sky, whilo the Priory walls
and Parsonage and tbe gray old church
itself wero daintily draped with the
same soft mantle of down.
Brneutti, in tho enuwy garden, tbu
cedar-tree trailed sparkling garlundi,
and the same graceful pendants suspended themselves like broken crystals from overy bush and shrub; all
looking fair and still, like tl.e en*
chanted garden of a dream,
But oven as I looked and admired,
chaos was being wrought by profaning
hands in front, where the lusty labor
ers, clamorous for work, were already
digging out for themselves deep, dark
trenches through the white sea; all
but Charlie, who was retiring behind
his comforter, with blue and frozen
lingers, tho wrecks of diverse snowballs scattered at his feet, and the
marks of recent tears upon his face.
But tbe tumult reached iis height
at the breakfast able, and was finished
by three times throo, whon Dudley,
after much argument and waste of
breath on the part of the small fry,
gave out his orders for the day; whieh
were to this effect, that no decoration
work was to proceed till a clear, decent
and orderly path should be cut through
court aud lane, for the good of traffic
in general and the special behoof of
him and Bruce,
"So to your spados, young idlers,'1
pronounced the practical autocrat,
"and warm your frozen toes and
fingers by going infra dig; and as we
are actually snowed up, I suppose
partner and self must nssist."
