Our Canadian N.P. was simply
the old worn-out delusion, of protection by high customs duties, tried a
thousand times beforo, nover onco
witli success, and in England, after
a trial of more thnn a century in
every conceivable aspect and cir
. cunistiince, emphatically cast away
forever.—Halifax, l\T.S., Chronicle,
» Sir John Maconald must part
with another of bis titles to distinction, The statement thut he was
the first colonial statesman to be
made a K.O.B. is not accurate. It
was in 1867 that Sir John had these
magic letters affiliated with his
name. Four years before that Sir
James Douglas, Governor of Vancouver Island nnd the colony of
Britisli Columbia, was made a
Knight Commander of the Bath.
Sir James was a native of Demerara.
At an early age lie entered the service of the North-West Company,
and in course of time became chief
factor of the Hudson Bay Company.
Whilst holding that office he was
made the second governor of Vancouver Island, and afterward held
in addition the post of tirst governor
of British Columbia. Near the close
of his term of office, in 1864, he was
made a K.0<B., and was therefore
the first Canadian to receive the
decoration.—Toronto Globe.

NUMBER 9
The duty of the American government in tlie premises is plain,
Whatever the merits of tho question
at issue may be, the dynamiters
should not be allowed to .mako this
country an arsenal in which to forgo
their thunderbolts. Strict laws
should be passed preventinc the
manufacture or handling of dynamite for destructive purposes. Tlie
dynamiters should bu treattxl as a
people nt wur, and the neutrality
laws, having been so amended as to
reach their case, should be strictly
enforced. We have no room horo
for plotters against the pence of a
friendly nation. We want no 0'-
Donovan Rossas; no loud-mouthed
boasters. We have no room for
Irishmen, Englishmen, Germans or
Italians. We want Americans only.
When a man becomes nu American
citizen he should throw oft' his old
allegiance for all time, nnd sbould
be bound by no tie, legal or sentimental, to any foreign government
or people. Americans will have all
they can do to conduct their own
government properly, and other
peoples should be free from either
our advice or interference. Our
people cannot afford to harbor either
fugitives or plotters,—Seattle Post-
Intelligencer.
made such startling statements. In
this letter he complains that Russia
is prevented by England from acquiring the northern shore of the
Bbsphorus, the possession of which,
he asserts, is necessary for the protection of her southern territory.
The wars hitherto waged against
Turkey have not placed Russia in
possession of what she so much
wants, because England, powerful
at sea, was able to resist and check
her advance in that direction. The
true mode of obtaining what Russia
requires is to advance on India, and
so strike at the head of England.
Lord Beaconsfield, he asserts, endeavored before the war of 1876, to
form an alliance with Vevmhx and
Afghanistan against Russia, und to
create a Turcoman Kingdom, which
would be a barrier to the Russian
advance towards India, Tliat, lie
says, failed because the Ameer of
Afghanistan refused to enter the
proposed alliance. It was Russia's
progress in Turkestan, lie. asserts,
that caused England to stand with
folded arms during the war between
Russia and Turkey in 1878. Russia's truo policy, he contends, is now
to push forward towards India, to
insist that in tbe proposed arrangement of the frontier, due regard be
paid to her interests and her rights,
and to let England understand thnt
she can retain India only on con-,
dition of allowing Russia to take
and hold tho north side of the Bos-
pborus. He says that Russia does
not want India for itself, and that
if she sent au army into tlmt country, proclaiming freedom for its people, millions would flock to her
standard. Russia, he contends, is
now in a better position to invade
India successfully than was Seini-
ramis, Sesostris, Alexander the
Great,' or any of the others who, at
various times, conquered that country. Ho seems to forget that the
powers of resistance are much greater, that England could send troops
by sea much faster than Russia could
marcli a force overland, that the Indian army could in a short time be
greatly augmented, that Indians
officered by Europeans aire excellent
troops, and that the warlike Mussulman population would in all probability prefer English rule to Russian
promises of freedom. The letter,
no doubt, expresses the views and
wishes of a large part of the Russian
army, but the Russian government
will, if necessary, givo satisfactory
assurance that they do not share
these views, and that thoy can bo
good neighbors in tbe far east without obtaining tho control of the
Bosphorus as the price of friendship,

We have always regarded O'Don-
ovan Rossa and' his following as a
set of idle knaves, adroit enough to
swindle their credulous and ignorant
fellow countrymen by setting up a
pretence of conducting private hostilities against England, We have
not believed that they aimed at anything more serious than a low and
contemptible form of felony* nnd
as the practitioners who could be
left in the care of the police, we
have not been much concerned about
.them, If, however, as a quarrel
- among them would appear to disclose, they are an organization of
skulking assassins, a league of
vitiousness and destruction, using
our hospitality and tlie shelter of
our flog to concoct and execute tho
most revolting and cowardly crimes
that are known to modem times,
then they should be dealt with differently. Tho law should treat them
promptly and with unspairing severity. They should be made to learn
that if they would live in this country it must be as American citizens.
and not as thugs and conspirators.
It should bo made too hot to hold
them outside of its jails, for tliere is
nothing here but abhorrence of them
and of their practices, and the sooner
we are purged of them the better.
It would be well if they could be
sent back to Ireland. Sho has no
worse enemies in the world, and will
know what to do with thorn.* She
has no better friend-nor anywhere
any warmer sympathizer iu hor
struggles for independent than she
has in America, We recognize with
Mr. Parnell and Mr. Davitt that
there are no traitors to the cause of
Ireland so black as those who use
dynamite and whose purpose is secret assassination.—iV. Y.'Sun.
A letter publishod in a Moscow
paper has created somo excitement

FRIDAY,
After sumi! minor matters had been
disposed of, Mr. Wilson presented a
report of thu Coal Hnrbor squatters
committee, and asked for n shorthand
reporter,
Hun. Mr. Smithe said the committee
was appointed to .enquire into tho
claims of the settlers at Burrard Inlet,
and it was to be believed that the hon.
mover knew something in reference to
such claims. Ha had prepared every
information in the land office for the
committeo this morning, but they had
not called for it. Now the committee
wanted to put an advertisement into a
newspaper so that any one who thought
or imagined he had a claim could present evidence before them. All claims
wero .registured in tho land office and
there such as wore claimed by these
squatters wuuld bo entered and ho
thought it a most extraordinary proceeding for the committee to go on the
outside hunting up claimants. Ho had
a resolution on the orders of the house
which wns loft fur a full house, and as
it was a most important matter that
the question should bo at once settled
as thoy had now a full houso the matter should bo considered. There was
a representative of tho railway syndicate in Victoria awaiting tho decision
of the house to go on with the building
of necessary works, and instead of running all over tho country for information it should be Boeuroil froth the lnnd
department. Claimants to land hud
not communicated with the land department since July last, and instead
of going tu the proper quarters thoy
were button-holing members on tho
street, and sayinu they were poor men
and had a just claim. They had been
replied to that their claims wero unjust
and without legal foundation, and thoy
had not tho shadow of justice in them.
Mr. Semlim said that the intention
of thu committee was to expedite business and they were of the same opinion
as that just expressed by the chief
commissioner, it was for tho purpose
of Rotting evidence and rapidly communicating it to the house that they
asked for an advertisement to bo inserted, so that all who had claims could
present thom.
In reply to Hun. Mr, Davio, Mr.
Wilson said he could not tell how long
it would be before the committee
wuuld report, He thought the enquiry
promised to be quite lengthy. The
committee had done what they thought
hest, and they should hare received a
fairer reception than hud been accorded
them by tho government.
Mr. Pooley said that he did not hold
the same opinion as the leader of the
govornmont in this matter, for ho could
see that he had mado up his mind that
there were no suoh claims as wero put
in, Thoro may bo just and unjust
claims, and it was well that all should
have tho opportunity of presenting
such claims, so that it could be known
to the country in reference to the
Same,

Tho very stirring telegraphic
iH'wa whicli wc kid before our oity
readers in an extra on Thursday
nfternoon will be found'in another
column. It must be most gratifying to till Britons that the expedition to Kiiiirtomn has met witli such
success in the face of sueh serious
diffiouities. Some people will be
greatly surprised to learn that Gen.
Gordon professes to be able to hold
Khartoum for years if necessary!
It is stated tliat the report of the
Chinese commission appointed by
the Ottawa government will shortly
be presented to parliament. If this
report is not satisfactory, we hope
our representatives at Ottawa wil
not neglect to .point out the very
unsatisfactory . way in which the
commission performed its work.
The extraordinary haste manifested,
and the apparent indifference with
regard to important evidence, will
not soon be forgotten in this province,     ^^______________
The Toronto Mail intimates that
the Dominion license case will be
carried by tlie federal government
to the British privy council, and
says: "It will be time enough to
consider what is to be done for the
license officers and tlie licenses when
the Judicial Committee has decided
that the Act is unconstitutional;
but unless many of the best lawyers
in Canada are mistaken, that day
will never come." It seems to us
the most graceful thing the federal
government could do in this matter
would be to let it rest where it is.
It is reported that no action will
lie taken by tlie house on the arrangement between the government
and the 0,P,U. syndicate for an ex-
. tension to Coal Harbor until the
report of the Squatters' Claims committee lias been presented. If that
report should be delayed any lei)gtli
of time the result would be most
unfortunate. The delay of this settlement is a loss of thousands of
dollars every week to the country.
We believe no one wishes to see
bona lide squatters sillier, but it
would have been much better if the
business of the house had gone ou
and these claims had been ventilated
Iwfore the courts.
The Seattle Post concludes an article on Gen. Stewart's march across
the desert to the relief of Khartoum
in the following words: Added to
the other horrors is the continual
probability of an attack, for unless
the Arabs are thoroughly cowed by
the lato defeat, there will be heavy
fighting before the oyes of the English are gladdened by the sight of
the fresh N'le water. There have
beeu many famous marches in history, but among them all none lias
in it more elements of the heroic
than this weary, disheartening advance of Gen. Stewart's little band
of British soldiers in a burning and
lifeless country, never before pierced
. by a European army. The march
to Khartoum will-be talked of aud
, wondered at, long years after the
children and the grandchildren of
the soldiers of to-day have passed
away.   ^^^^mt^mm^_
The Government's Position.
Home people profess to think that
the provincial government will be
defeated by somo of the conflicting
interests which  are now dividing
the attention of the house.    We do
not share iu this belief,   There is
no question before the house whieh
is likely to challenge serious opposition, and tho govornment undoubtedly possesses the confidence af parliament.    If such an event should
happen, however, it would l*e a matter  for' serious regret throughout
the country.   The present government took otlice at a time when provincial affairs wore in a most deplorable condition, and it cannot be
denied  that prospects everywhere
are now as bright as they have been
during any period of the history of
this country.   We do not say that
the government should receive the
whole credit of this change, but unless a decided change liad  taken
place in the manner of conducting
public business, we are of opinion
that the provinco would  not have
realised the same amount of progress,   As nn independent journal,
Thi Columbian would exceedingly
regret to see the government's posl
tion seriously menaced, because it
believes a change of administration
just now Would not be in the interest of the country.   But we believe
there is no real danger of such a
catastrophe.
The Precious Metals.
■ In his annual statement of the
production of gold, silver, copper,
nnd lead on tho Pacific coast (in-
chiding Uritish Columbia) for 1884,
tlio president of Wells Fargo & Co.'s
express shows a falling off of nearly
$(1,000,000 from 1883. The returns
aro for all tho region west of the
Missouri river. Tho aggregate is
given as follows: Gold, $26,256,542;
silver, $45,799,O09j copper, 86,08(1,-
252; lend, 60,834,091 j total, $84,-
975,91)4. Tlie amount produced for
the same region ton years ago was
§74J401,045. In 1877 it had reached the highest point ever attained,
boing §98,421,754. In 1881 it was
in millions the same as last year ;
but in 18,82 it reached over $92,-
000,000, and over 890,000,000 in
1883. In these returns California
shows a decrease of §944,703 in
gold, and an increase of 8513,597
in silver. The following comparative statement will be interesting,
showing the product of eaeh state
arid territory for 1884 :

It is stated as a fact that the
value of gold and silver coined in
Mexico during the last 348 years,
statistics of which have been preserved, readies the large sum of
$3,234,131,840. It will bo several
years yet before we shall be able to
present such a showing for British
Columbia, but our mining operations
are sure to be greatly extended during the next few years.

boats, 85,700; 1124 nets and seines,
$133,'.U>0; total, $240,205. Thore are
also 25 salmon canneries; valued at

stations, §11,000; total, 8570,500;
making a grand total of 8810,705. In
connection witli tlio llahories there ore
employed 85 sailors, 1881 fishermen
and hunters, and 1015 shore men.
Last year) it is well known, wns a vory
miserable year for salmon. It is expected and hoped that the salmon will
be plentiful this season,

France and China.
If Franco has declared war with
China, as reported in tlie telegrams,
the complications between Britain
and France may be greatly increased. British trade with China is so
large that any interference with it
would cause a panic. Having declared war, France will be at liberty
to search nny suspected vessel found
in Chinese waters, nnd this right of
search, unless exercised with tho
greatest discretion will lead to trouble. It was not believed that the
Franco-Chinese war would evor
amount to & serious international
conflict. The position of France
among the nations was not thought
to be secure enough to permit such
a thing. But if it has beeu determined to push the campaign as such
a campaign must be pushed to make
it successful, operations may be
looked for upon u very large scale.
It may be doubted whether France,
with a war ou.her-haiids in Madagascar, northern Africa, and China,
and actively concerned in tho
Egyptian campaign and the Congo
settlement scheme, will come out
botter oH'either financially.or politically. It is believed that an attempt
will he mude to seize the Chinese
capital but it, could not be held for,
any length of time. It has been
frequently hinted that Bismarck has
been using every endeavor to bring
about this declaration of war so that
France would become committed
beyond Vetreat, and Germany would
then take advantage of her embarrassment to weaken her power. But
we should not he surprised to learn
that there is a secret understanding
between France and Germany on
the Chinese question us well its the
general policy of tho two nations.
Thero is no friendship for Britain
in either France or Germany, and
this common dislike tends to make
these two nations mutually anxious
to promote each other's schemes.
Britain seems to havo secured the
positive friendship of Italy, but how
the other alliances may go it is not
easy to determine,

Fine Pioh, — Yesterday afternoon
wo received a telegram from Messrs.
Johnston & Co., Nanaimo, to whom
the drove of pigs from Innes Bros.'
farm was consigned, which says; "The
hogs received from Innes Bros., Langley, are the best lot received in this
market. They are killing with only
ten per cont. waste." This is certainly
very complimentary and satisfactory.
Hardly.—Either Senator Mclnnes
hat been ''giving away " the Loudon

an interview in which tho senator is
made to say that ouo of the Burrard
Inlet sawmills has a capacity of 250,000
foot of lumber in 24 hours ! Ho nlso
states that British Columbia coal is so
superior in quality that it brings from
one to two dollars a ton more in San
Franoisco than "European or nny other
coal." Everybody knows that both
■ these statements aro quito wido ofthe
truth, and if they were made at all by
Senator. Mclnnes he must havo beon
joking.

Police Court.—On Thursday last a
somewhat singulai' case was brought
beforo the court. In addition to the
police magistrate, Mr. D, W. Ferris
and Captain Pittendrigh, J. P.'s, sat
on tho bench. The charge was made
by Mrs. James Metcalfe against Frank
Smith, of having committed an nssault
by pointing a pistol at her. Mr. McColl (Corbould & McColl) appeared for
tho .complainant and Mr. Edmonds for
,tho defense. Mrs, Metcalfe snid she
was standing near tho gate of f the
slaughter houso, and Smith was oii tho
inside; asked him to open tho gate and
lot her pigB out; ho refused, called hor
names, uud, drawing a pistol, pointed
it ovor tho ynto at her nnd said, "Don't
you come into this yard ; if you do I'll
shout you!" After she turned, she
heard tbu pistol go oft". Tbepntol was
an old one, and nut shinoy. Wm. Sorrel, a relation nf Mrs. Metcalfe's, snid
ho was noar tho placo at tho time ; he
hoard Mrs. Metcalfe aBk for tho pigs,
and Smith anid, "Get out, of I'll blow
your head off;" saw him point.n pistol;
it was a largo ono; was ahout 10 yards
froni tlio gate, which was open wide
enough to let a cart go iu. Smith said
ho met Mrs. Metcalfe and said "Hello,
old woman !'' . She did not reply, and
he went and closed \}ie gatu ; sho then
said Bho wanted he*; pigs, to which ho
replied, "You stop out, or I'll 	
on you'' (the blank expression is uot
iit fur publication); did nut know what
she wanted in for; tho gato is 7 or 8 ft.
high, and closo boarded ; hu closed tho
gato with a stick; did. not point the
stick at hor; had no pistol, and hover
carried one. Constable Wiggins said
tho fence wns nearly 7 feet high ; he
produced a stick with whioh the gate
was fastened; Smith boro a good character, so far as ho knew. Tho court
dismissed the caso, without costs. In
delivering judgment the polico magistrate said very improper language had
been used, but tho bench believed no
assault hnd been committed.
The Superintendent ov Education.
—It gives us pleasure to observe that
another Ontario teacher lias made his
mark abroad—this time in tho person
of Mr. S. D. Pope,who hns lately been
'appointed Superhitoudcut of Education for British Columbia. Mr. Popo,
is u native uf Ontario, having boon
born in the county of Hastings in 1843,
Ho graduated at Queon's, by special
dispensation, at tho very early age of
eighteen, after a brilliant university
career, and was styled "Tho Boy Bachelor." After somo solicitation on tho
part, of the trustees, he accepted the
head mastership of what was then called the Unitotl Grammar and Common
Schools of Stirling, Out., which position ho lilted with much acceptance for
threo years, when he became desirous
of seeing the Far West. Resigning
tho situation, ho finally settled in Oregon, where he married. Hero he remained for twelve yoars, after \vhich
ho removed to his adopted province.
It could not be expocted lhat the highest positions would open to him at
sight, und the reverse wan tho case ;
but while tho discouragements were
maiiy, as is tho'caso iu overy how country, and facilities for enjoyment and
comfort few, yet that snmo determined
perseverance that was evinced during
his university courso carried him on,
aud in tlm short space of eight yoars
we Iiiul him ut the hend of the educational ntfnirs of our noble sister, province. In laying the foundation for a
wise- educational system ho will have
rnnny difficulties to contend against
and numerous discouragements' to
meet, not to speak of numberless attacks by opponents of reform aud advancement ; hut we trust that, with a
stout heart nnd a strong hnmlj such as
wero displayed by our lato lamented
chiof, Dr. Ryerson, whose fama is iu
even his enemies' mouths, tho cause of
education will continue to advance until British Columbia can boaBt of educational advantages inferior to nono in
our fair Dominion.—Canada School

Steam Fire Engine.
THE ENGINE TESTED AND APPROVED
Tho new steam firo engine, whieh
camo over on tho steamer Idaho on
Saturday, wns subjected to a test on
Monday, under tho superintendence of
Mr. J, D. Ronald, tho builder. Tho
ongiuo was taken to tho foot of Mary
street, and the. suction hose put into
tho river. By the official time, tho
steam gauga showed 50 lbs. in !> miu,
and some seconds after tbv«liro. had
boon lit, Tho first teBt was mndo with
a one-inch nozzle, which threw a magnificent stream a Way oyer the post-office
flag-polo on . Columbia street. This
stream was kept up steadily for a considerable length of time, and then two
streams with I nozzles were thrown.
The hoso was then laid up Mury street
to the Methodist Church, aud n stream
was sent about 30 feot over the
top of the tower. Tlio top of tho tower
stands 165 feet nbove Ihe river, so thnt
tho wator wns really forced to a height
of nonrly 200 foot. Thu tost of tho engine seemed tu givo vory full satisfaction to .all who witnessed it, Il seems
to be strongly built, woll finished, and
very simple. Tho engine may be classed as a largo medium. Its weight is
5,000 lbs, The boiler is made of steel,
and contnins nbout 205 senmloBB copper tubes. Thoso tubes being of copper, produce steam much moro rapidly
than iron tubes; and, boing seamless,
they nover rust. The nominal horsepower is 20, The boiler is tested to
200 lbs., and tho average pressure of
steam for running is about 75 lbs. In
this engine a wator pressure can be
secured double the pressure of steam,
in which it hns a groat advantage over
tho English engines. It is clnitned
that steam chough for working cnu'be
mndo in 7 minutes after lighting the
tiro. The cost of the engine is 83,800.
With it came two carriages, nnd 1,000
foot of,ttie best American rubber-lined
hose, warranted to stand n pressure of
■*■
400 pounds to the square inch. Those
engines .were tested at the centennial
exhibition, where it beat all tho other
engines, throwing first water. On
Thursday afternoon it was taken out
again for a second exhibition, and behaved admirably, Mr. Ronald informs
us that ho has sold 57 of his engines
throughout Canada, several having
gone to Manitoba recently. This is
tho first Canadian steam fire engine
imported into British Columbia. From
newspnpors before us wo learn that the
tests made of these engines (which are
manufactured in Brussels, Ontario,)
have Been quite satisfactory in other
places. The Manchester Guai'(KflH(Eug.)
correspondent at tho centennial reported that the Ronald engine was by
a long wuy tho bost at the exhibition ;
and the London Times correspondent
was equally flattering. Wo believe we
may fairly congratulate our citizens
upon securing a very excellent steam
firo engine at a moderate cost. Not
only will it afford much-needed protection in case of (ire, but ifc Bhould also
afford substantial benefit in reducing
insurance rates. In concluding a report of the engine lately purchased at
Cobourg, Ontario, the Sentinel says :—
"We arc informed that Mr. Brough,
agent of the North British Mercantile
Insurance Company, has alroudy notified all the policy-holders that a reduction of one-quarter por cent, will uow
be effected on all policies ou all proporty in Cobourg." A similar reduction
ought now to be granted by tho insurance companies doing business in this
city.

Provincial Legislature.
(Continued from 1st Pago.)
Hon. Mr. Smithe said he wished to
correct nn 'impression that was in the
remarks of the two previous spoakers,
and that was that ho wished his opinion first consulted. It was not so.
Everyone who had n claim had registered it with the department, and tho
records should have been searched.
Hud the committee asked information
of tho lands and works, and then gone
outside, he could understand it, but
their course was rather a peculiar one.
Mr. Helgesen Baid that it was only
the desire of tho committee tu further
business that they had reported ua
thoy did. He hoped tho government
would meet them in this.       ■!
Mr, Grant asked the hon. commissioner if parties had not filed claims
far such lands. If there were any parties who had filed such claims ihey
wero thu only ones who would be likoly
to be .brought before the committeo to
givo evidence,
Mr. Theo. Davie wild he knew littlo
in reference to the matter, but either
-the committee .was necessary or othorwiso. Thero should bo a complete report on tho matter, and the committee
should furnish it. It was nut with a
view of hunting up claims on the question but of giving notico of such sittings of tho committee that an advertisement was nsked for. If a not ideation was given of the sittings of tliis
committee there would bo ncj buttonholing. Tho chiof commissioner hath
always boen fair in his dealings, and
there should bo an impartial investigation into tho matter. The committeo
had suggested the best means of furthering the business, nnd if sueh was
uot dono thero would be no publio satisfaction ou the subject.
Mr. Orr said that the lands at present under dispute were for a number
of years under the Dominion government, and the provincial authorities
had told applicants thut they had nu
power in the matter. He thought the
best information would bo found in the
Dominion land office. Tho provincial
secretary had received a petition asking for protection for settlers iu the
disputed point but uo notice had beon
tnkon of it. Ho hoped the government would give tho committee what
they required.
Hun, Mr, Smithe said tho claims to
bo considered ahould hnvo beon recorded at the lauds und works department, and he had no doubt tliat those
claiming had registered them. He
had received n letter from a legal gentleman at New Westminstor offering
to pay money for certain land at Bur-
rani Inlet, and in three days had forwarded him a reply, stating that his
claim had no foundation whatever.
It was tho dosiro of thu government to
hnvo tho matter fully investigated, but
he still thought thu committee were
going out of their range in going out-
sidu for information. If it wns tho
desire of tho committee to not havo a
lengthy sitting, as he understood from
tho mover of the- resolution was thu
intention, ho would havo no objection
to the report. If the committeo would
tako up the timo that the dry duck
committeo did in their important investigation, it would delay the business
of the house for four or live weeks.
If such wore dono it would bo doing a
great injustice tu the country gonorally
in delaying tho settling of a most important matter.
Mr. Duck moved for copies uf all
orders in council relating to crown
grants of land on Coal Harbor and
English Bayon thoC.P.R. Hon. Mr.
Smithe said thoro were no orders in
council relating to tho matter. Tho
correspondence had boen carried on in
his own twine nud with tho approval
of his colleagues.
Hon. Mr. Davio moved the house
into committeo ou the court of assize
bill, In consequence of railway do-
velopmont, ho said, it was found necessary to make new arrangements for
tlio courts, No changes would ho
made with respect, tu the courts at
Now Westminstor or Kamloops, or on
tho Island. It was proposed to abolish
tho courts at Yalo and Lytton, and
establish onu nt Engle Pass, A long
discussion arose on this proposal. Mr.
Davio said it wns cheaper to send
criminal prisoners from Yalo to New
WestmiiiBter or Kamloups. The question was postponed.
Hon. Mr. Robson, in moving iho
second reading of the Public School
Consolidation bill, pointed out tho
principal features of tho bill. It proposed that the voting for trustees
shall ho by ballot, and nt wards as in
municipal elections, It also dealt
with the matter of dismissing teachers without notice.    Mr. Theo. Davio
said tlie govornment deserved great
credit for the bill, but he was oppoBed
to the ballot for school elections. After some notices of motion, the house
adjourned till
mon DAY.
Mr. McLoese moved for correspondence with reference to school at 150-
mile house. He said a private house
had beun used ua a school, and the
govornment had refused to pay rent.
Hon. Mr, Robson explained that the
house had been offered for school purposes free, and the government had
spent in fitting it up money enough to
erect a new sohool house. It was
never contemplated thnt rent would be
asked.
On motion of Mr. McLeoso, seconded by Mr. Cowan, a resolution was
passed asking for thu establishment of
a semi-monthly mail Bervice between
Soda Creek and somo point ih the Ohil-
coten country.
Mr. Duck asked returns showing the
number of female votes cast at tho
last school eloction. He said his object was to show thut women had
taken advantage of the voting power
extended to them, and had exercised
the franchise with discretion.
Mr. Drake moved for a return of
all lands set apart for Indians in the
province since 13th January, 1883,
with the names of the tribes and the
number of Indians for whom suoh
reserve hnd been made; also the ro-
Borves which had heen suggested to
tho chief commissioner, but not assented to. Ho thought the reserves
held by tho Indians wore too large,
and un good uso was being made of
them. After some discussion, Hon.
Mr, Smitho said he thought the present condition uf tho Indian reserves
was tti vory unsatisfactory one. He
would be glad- if all the information
should be published, and ho would
ask that the honorable movor would
go further and ask for all correspondence between' the chief commissioner
of lands and works aud the Indian
agent and superintendent on the mat-;
ter. Tho Dominion agent at present
had an idea that ho could finally lay
out crown lands for Indians without
consulting the lands nnd works department. Thoy had been in the habit of
communicating the bare fact thut so
many thousands of acres had been set
apart for Indians. He did not feel
that he could approve of suoh reserves
without knowing us muoh nbout the
matter na tho agent did himself, and
with tho belief that it was the interest for all concerned that such reserves
Bhould he made. The Indian commissioner had stated to him that his instructions from Sir John Macdonald
were to the effect that his decision was
final in locating such reBerv.es.
After a brief discussion on several
topics, the house udjourned until
Tuesday.

[Ily Telegraph to thn Columbian,]
London, Jan, 28,—Intelligence is just
received at the war office that Gen. Stewart's force is entrenched south of Mctem-
ncli. Tho dispatch also gives the gratifying information tlint Stewart is in communication with Gen. Gordon. Stewart's
force had several lights with Arab rebels
before it reached MeUmneli. Stewart
himself was badly wounded. Five of
tho Mahdi's emissaries were killed iu the
fight. Gen. Wolseley, in the dispatch,
reports the capture of Metemneh liy tho
British; alao says Sir Charles Wilson has
gono to Khartoum on board a Bteamer to
confer with Gordon, ft is expected hu
will return as soon as possible and report
personally to Wolseley.
London, .Ian. 28.—An official dispatch
received this afternoon from Gordon
shows liis position at Khartoum by uu
moans as desperato as supposed. He
says he could hold out for years. Stew-
nit's wounds are doing well.
London, Jan. 28.—A dispatch from
Cairo declares that Lord Chas. Beresfont
with a small contingent is pushiug un
from Metemneh to Khartoum.
London, Jnn. 28, 1:30 p. m.—Official
dispatches indicate that the mareh of
Stewart and his little unny from Abn-
Klun wells to Its present position haa
been uo easy task. Almost every foot
appears to have been sharply contested
by a resolute Arab foe. Thore was a
constant succession of eiiuoiintum from
tho action of the 17th till tlie Nile win
reached, the British troops steadily gaining tresh victories over the impetuous
hut easily demoralized enemy. On tho
morning of January HHli, two days
after tlie fight nt Abu-Klea, the enemy
appeared in force in front, of the advancing British army. A short, fierce battlo
was fought. Tliu occurre.l ut a poiut
about II miles from tho Nile.   The Brit-
li woro compelled lo Btistaiu a heavy
lire for Dome time. Early In tlie engagement Stewart received his wound, and
Sir Chas. Wilson thereupon assumed,
command. Works wero hastily constructed under a rain of lead which continued to pour upon thein from the
enemy's rifles. Wounded men and the
baggage woro left under guard behind
qiia-kly-luiilt earthworks, while the rest
of the corp* advanced in tbe faco of n.
hostile tire to a gravel ridge some distance in 'front. Hero a large force of
rebels had established themselves in a
strong position. As soon as the British
line oame near a fierce charge was mado
ngaiiiBt it by the rebel foemeii. Tho
llritish troops arranged, ns usual, in thu
form of a square and steadily advanced
to meet the wild onset of thu loudly-
cheering enemy, who were rushing down
upon them. At tho same time tlie rifle*,
of the British wore doing bloody execution nnd tho charge wns checked. Not
nn Arab came w'ithm thirty yards of the
British suuarc, Tho rebels did not long
stand before the murderous Knglish fire,
but were repulsed with heavy loss. Five
emissaries and SBO men were left doad on
the field, and large munhem wounded.
About the English losses few details are
yet received. It is known, however,
tint Cameron, special correspondent ol
the Loudon Dally Standard, and Herbert, special correspondent of the Morn-
ing Post, were killed. The place where
the battle occurred is a short distance
beyond Shehacatt wells, Stewart's
wound, while not fatal, is so serious that
he will be disabled for the remainder of
the present campaign. Gen. Wolseley
considers- the loss of his services a
national calamity. He characterizes
Stewart as the ablest soldier aud most
dashing commander he ever knew, and
recommends him to the Queen's most
favorable consideration. Lord St. Vincent, of the artillery, was among the
British slain,
London, Jan. 28.—Tho excitement
occasioned by the explosions and the
great excitement concerning the fate of
Gen, Stewart, which existed during the
past several days, is completely obliterated to-day hy news that Stewart has
captured Metemneh and succeeded in
communicating with Gen. Gordon. Great
enthusiasm prevails, and many congratulations over tlie success of Stewart's expedition have lieen received at the war
ofllce,
Stewart now holds a strongly fortified
post at Gubat, uot far from Metemneh, a
Elace on the Nile half way between Borer aud Khartoum. Opposite Guhat is
a large island on which plenty of forage
for horses and camels is easily obtained.
So strong is the position at Guhat that it
Ib confidently asserted it can be held by
a small garrison ugainst any force widen
the rebels may send to attack it. The
route across the desert from Gubat to
Korti is securely hold by the English.
Col, Sir Redvur Bullet- will he in command of this route. He left Korti today to. assume the- position. News of
Stewart's movements since the battle of
Abu Klea wells was brought to Korti by
Capt. Pigott. He left Gubat with the
dispatches on Saturday last and reached
Korti this morning, having encountered
no serious'difficulty by tho way.
Paris, Jan. 28.—The refusal of the
British authorities to allow tho Triumphant to refit at Kongkong has caused
groat annoyance here. Voltaire denounces the conduct as. especially unfriendly, and urges the French government to retaliate by immediately blockading all Chinese ports. This, Voltaire
says, France hitherto refrained from doing because Bhe regarded England as a
friendly power, and blockading Chinese
ports would have hampered England's
commerce,
Korti, Jan. 28,—The royal Irish regiment commenced its movement across
the desert to-day. West Kent follows
immediately.
Aden, Jan, 28.—Advices from Periin
state that the Italian ironclad Castle
Widardo arrived at Beilur, on the west
coast of the lied sea, not far from Masso-
wah, and successfully disembarked a detachment of troops, intended for co-operation with tlie English in the Souunn.
The Italian flag was hoisted in Beilur.
London, Jan. 28.—Korti dispatches to
Reuter's agency say that Gen. Stewart
gained a brilliant victory on the litth
over the rebels. The enemy numbered
7000. A large number were cavalry
armed with rifles, The British loss was
20 killed and 60 wounded. The total
loss of the enemy was 1300. Firing began iu the morning, and lasted all day.
Col. Burleigh special correspondent of
the London Telegraph nnd Lords Airlie
and Sommerset aro among the wouuded.
London, Jan. 28.—It is reported that
France has decided officially to declare
war against China. This decision iB said
to have been made in consequence of
England enforcing the terms of the foreign enlistment act at Hongkong and
elsewhere,
London, Jan. 28.—The point where
the battle of the Iflth occurred is in the
desert about 5 miles south irom Metemneh. When Gen. Stewart reached that
point he found the enemy hovering about
his little witty on aU slues, and skirting
it' often within uncomfortably short
range. The rebels had evidently stationed themselves In the vicinity to await
his arrival and give him battle. When
they began to surround him and press
upon him he determined to abide the
event. He ordered his men to dismount
and form a zareeba. Tliis was .made with
saddles and baggage aiul during Its construction the rebel riflemen drew nearer
and maintained a hot fire from behind
ambushes and such hiding places as they
could Bad among bushes and high crass.
This fire was very well directed, and was
most disastrous in its effects upon the
British troops. Four men were soon shot
dead, and 40 others wounded. Among
the first killed were Mr. Cameron, special
correspondent of the London Standard
and Mr. flesbert, special correspondent
of tho London Posl. Gen. Stewart was
one of the very first to be wounded. He
was shot in the thigh. When he was
shot the work of making the zareeba was
about completed, and the army had been
put in motion to form its battle array.
This was a hollow square. As soon as
completed the square advanced under a
steady ambush fire at a distance of 2
miles. At this point the enemy began
to move ou the square in two large echelons. These were directed against the
British right front which stood unmoved.
During rebel charge, English troops forming the assailed front returned a terrific
fire aimed right at the enemy's middle,
blowing down the men iu bucIi heaps
that thoy formed an actual obstacle aud
interfered so seriously with the eveuuuss
necessary to the success of the onslaught
that its centre line was brought to a
standstill about sixty yards from the
British front line. The forco of the
general movement throw the unimpeded
parts of the line, like the ends of broken
timber, around the corners of the square,
and tho rebtls so displaced were simply
uut. to pieces. From this on the war-
faro was disastrous to the rebels, When
the enemy's line was broken the Arabs
seemed to break up iuto bands, each of
which waged war on its own account. A
large detachment, mostly on horselmck,
went back to attack the uireeha. This
was garrisoned by a body of Knglish
soldiers made up nf little detachment*
left behind by each corps which hail
gone forward iu the square, Lord Chns.
Beresford was iu command, lie sustained the attack for 2 hours, when the
enemy was compelled to retreat. In the
general attack upon the square only six
men were killed and -'I wounded ou the
English side. Cant. Norton worked the
guns during this tight, and his firini* did
awful execution. .Stewart's forte on
Ifjtving Gokduo wells consisted of 2,000
picked lighting men. Latest dispatches
jiivivcd at the war ollice show that Lord
J§t. Vincent wns not us at fint reported
killed in the buttle fought in the desert
oti the llltii hist. Be died from wounds
received on the 17th at Abu-Klea. Only
two British oflicers wore killed in the
jiuwebu fight. The other dead were noncommissioned oiiiccii and privates.
During advance of the main body of
the English from the zareeba the garrison left behind at that poiut kept up a
heavy fire from their guns and rifles.
An effort was made to erect a small redoubt some fifty yards to the right of the
zareeba, under protection of a steady
tire from that point. During the erection of the redoubt one man wob killed
and <3 wounded. Lord Cochrane, with
forty men from the Life Guards nud
Seotts Greys, held tlie redoubt and maintained a heavy tlie throughout the battle. (Thoy did much to repel the con-
.stand rushes of tlie enemy. The losses
of the rebels during tlie whole day are
estimated at 2,000 killed and wounded.
Among the enemy wero many slaves,
several of whom have submitted to the
British. They say the Mahdi sent them
from Khartoum. The square reached
the Nile at sunset on Monday evening,
aud encamped for tho night. Early on
Tuesday morning parties mado a recon-
niiisaiiee and destroyed some empty villages, the inhabitants of which had
watched tho military operations from n
distance and   afterwards   retreated   to
Metemneh.
Toronto, Jan. 28.—Tho Ontario legislature opened to-day. The lient-govcr-
uor congratulated members on tho decision of the English privy council that
Ontario's true boundaries were those
awarded by the arbitrators and insisted
upon by this province in opposition to
the Dominion authorities and the claim
df Manitoba. After the decision of the
privy council the provisional district of
Thunder Bay aud the territorial district
of Rainy Kiver were established. Legislation will now 1)0 necessary for the effectual administration of justice in this
territory. Satisfaction -is expressed at
the final success of the provincial over
tho Dominion government in the matters
of the rivers and streams bill and the
license question.
Montreal, Jan. 28.—There was a
great storm to-day, and it was intensely
cold, the mercury falling to 10 and 12
below zero. The ice palace was inaugurated this evoning in the presence ot an
immense crowd. There were over 2,000
snow-shoers on the square, and they
took part in the attack scene, which was
grand, the discharge of rockets and fireworks being kept up for about thirty
minutes. After the attack the snow-
shoe club trapped across mountains
nearly a mile.
London, Jan. 28.—Herbert, special
correspondent of the London Pout, whose
death wns reported to-day, wob killed
during a furious attack of the rebels oa
the English while erecting a zareeba,
Herbert waB secretary to Lord Duflcrin
when the latter was governor-general of
Canada. He widnesscd the battles of
Tel-El-Kebir, El-Teb, aud Tamai. The
Queen has sont a dispatch thanking Gen,
Stewart and the troops for their bravery,
and expressing condolence with them
for their losses, and promoting Gen,
Stewart to the rank of major-general.
The rebel forces throughout all the
engagements have been well handled. It
is stated that two Europeans are among
them, which may explain the fact. A
female prisoner states that the British
fire decimated the enemy, who seem determined to remain inside of Metemneh.
Five of Gen. Gordon's -steamers, conveying 5,000 soldiers aud five guns,
arrived at Gubat on the 22nd. All the
troopj and guns landed, when the guns
were turned upon Metemneh without,
however, producing any apparant effect
upon the rebels. It is reported the
Mahdi is sending more troops and guns
to Metemneh,
On the 22nd Gen. Wilson, with four
of Gordon's steamers, a number of blaek
troops, two companies of mounted infantry, aud six guns, 1-oinhnrdcd Shendy
for two hours and almost completely destroyed the town; hut the occupants, of
whom there wore few, appeared to be
unwilling to surrender. The steamers
afterward returned to Gubat, whore a
number of forts arc being erected. It is
said the Mahdi has a force of 0,000
arouud Khartoum. Tho population of
Khartoum is now estimated at 14,000.
The total Britisli loss, including the loss
at Abu Klea, was 104 killed and 110
wounded. Tlie enemy's loss woe 4,000
killed and wounded. Gen. Earle telegraphs from Bahnk cataract, about 22
miles below Boiti, as follows: "Rebels
still occupy Boiti, and it is doubtful
whether wo will fight them there or retire to Berber. Some of the Mahdi's
regular soldiers at Boiti came from Berber. Thoy say they intend to desert to
us. T.wo uncles of Sheikh Suleman,
who murdered Col. Stewart, have sent
ua word tliey will come in and submit.
The natives arc now returning to the
villages,"
London, .Ian. 28.—In the fight of the
10th inst., which occurred within three
miles of the Nile many British troops
wore in an almost faulting condition from
lack of water. Col. Sir CIiub, Wilson
ordered a small detachment of cavalry
men to obtain a supply of water from the
river by cutting their way through the
enemy's forco. This dangerous movement was accompanied with less loss of
life than might he expected and enough
water obtained to revive the troops and
enable them to continue the attack.
London, Jun. 28.—The Newt? correspondent with Gen. Stewart, telegraphs
as follows; "Noar Metemneh, Jan. 20th
— after another fierce and prolonged fight
tlm object of Gen. Stewart's brilliant
march hns been bo far attained tUat we
have onco more established ourselves on
the banks of the Nile whore we cau hold
our own against immense numbers. Gen.
Stewart, hoping to "surprise the enemy,
left Abu- Klea wells on Saturday afternoon
and marched through the entire night.
Thero is no more fear now. The British
have- the Nile at their back, another
British column is ou the march and Gordon's steamers are securing supplies and
material. Metemneh is still held by a
small force of rebel riflemen with one
brass gun. The town is said to be in
great straits. One European was clearly
distinguished in the rebel ranks. The
British have captured three unarmed
rebel boats which will be very useful to
them. All the officers und men are in
excellent health and spirits. The British
square numbered 1200 and the force of
the enemy is estimated at nearly 12,000.
When tlie square returned to the zareeba
the day after the fight unny of the garrison wept for joy.

London, Jan. 23,—Tho Timet commenting on Parncll's lecture at Cork

Pmi.AiiEi.ritM, Jan. 27.—Chief Engineer Melville, of nrotlc fame, issued today an address .to the Amorican public
wherein lie expresses the belief that the
time Ib now ripe for making a final and
sucecsBfu voyage to the nortii pole.'
The route he advocates is by way of
Franz Josefs Land, nnd he declares it to
be an entirely safo and feasible tnw. It
would lie, he thinks, an actual saving of
life to make the attempt now, before the
knowledge born of experience expires,
and be trusts that there Is aome man in
America who will rise to the occasion

wliich he asserts is not necessary. He

London, Jan. 27.—In some respects
the panic produced by Saturday's events
has really increased. Fears were entertained yesterday that the dynamiters
meditated au attack upon the national
arsenals and naval'stations, and they
were placed under special watch. At
Chatham dock yard police were kept
afloat during the entire night. To-day
instructions were issued to put a stop to
all ingress to the tower, the house of
commons aud Westminster hall—even,
members aud peers being refused admission. The entrance to the palace ground
is closed, all public doors of the parliament building are locked, and barricades
have been thrown acroBs the hall at the
top of the staircase. The injured' are
all reported to be improving. Colonel
Majendie is proceeding with the examination of the banqueting hall and council
chambers in the white tower.
Paris, Jan. _1,—Qaidoin makes a sen*
sational statement about the London explosions. It declares positively that the
authors of the explosions are the same
men who made the dynamite attacks on
the London bridge and the Gower street
railway station. The chief organizer* of
both plots, Gauloh asserts, have beon
for a long time past, and are now, employed in an English printing oflico in
Paris, and until a recent date they lodged
in the St, Dennis quarter,- Paris, where
they manufactured the infernal machines
used in the diabolical work. "When
everything was in readiness for the per
petration of the contemplated atrocities,'
continues Gatdoln, "picked men who
were to lodge and Bet the machines departed separately and by different routes
for London,, each carrying one or more
of the machines. This was six weeks
ago." Ganlols says that no one of these
conspirators speak French, and no member of the entire band ever attended an
Anarchist meeting iu Paris.
London, Jan. 27.—The* Times continues its onslaught on Parnell, with a
stinging article, which says that Parncll's studied silence regarding the dynamite outrage calls to mind his attempt
to ignore Forster's indictment of the
Parnellites as moral accomplices in the
Pbamix park assassinations. The Times
assures the Irish agitators that their present policy of murder and silence will
not pay. They will never succeed in coercing the house of commons into accepting naked revolution by means of
spoliation. The Daily Newt thinks it
almost au insult to ask Englishmen to
keep their heads in face of such outrages,
but fears that the worst has not ye*.
come. It predicts that tho . next effort
of the cowards will he an attack on some
infant school.
Dublin,. Jan. 27.—A London correspondent of the Freeman's Journal telegraphs tbat 6000 Irishmen are thrown

San Francisco, Jan. 20.—The Bulletin's New York special says; Tlio Post't
Washington dispatches give startling in
formation concerning the mortality upon
the lino of the Panama canal. There
seems to be no doubt about the authenticity of the facts. The director-general
of the canal company has lest his entire
family by yellow fever, and Is himself
the only survivor of the party of twelve
persons who arrived at the isthmus some
fifteen months ago. The annual death
rate is put down at eleven in every
hundred. The disease seems to be yellow fever in nearly every case. The
sender of this Information reasonably
concludes that the isthmus' is pestilential, and in doing so merely confirms the
view of previous observers, that the
building of a canal through sueh a coun*
try can be scarcely less costly to human
life tliau a bloody war.
London, Jan. 29.—A dispatch from
Gubat says: The four steamers sent
down the river by Gen. Gordon have not
been to Khartoum for a month. They
have been awaiting the British above
Metemneh. The vessels are covered with
heavy boards of hard wood outside and
thin iron plates inside. They present a
battered appearance, being pitted with
bullet marks. The funnels are thickly
indented with bullet marks. The vessels resemble floating houses rather than
war ships. Kach steamer has seveial
hundred plucky" blacks aboard. They
are commanded by Tuikish oflicers, who
have tlieir wives and families with them.
The British are improving thoir defences, having learned that a force of Arabs
are coming down from Berber to attack
them. Troops have been put on half
rations until supplies from Knkdue arrive.
London, Jan. 29.—A dispatch from

"Ob, I said to everybody tbat Hestor had auob a bad cold,"said Emina.
"I said tbat her nose wns red, and Unit
it ijuito effected her voice. So il does.
. You dou't notice it flo-miioh when she
names up like that. I wonder bow
you can blush iu that way, Hester.
It iB the difference of comploxion, I
supposo. I alwaya keep tho same. It
is nice in somo ways, for howover bot
it is you cnu bo aure you aro not a figure ; but in othor respects I should
liko to cliango color liko that. It
makes you look interesting. Peoplo
think you are so sensitive, and that
sort of thing, when it's only juat complexion. Harry Vernon was more
grumpy than evor because you wero
not there, alwaya standing about beside Ellen, and, looking after her,
which, considering she's married, it iu
a groat deal more than any brother
ought to lako upon him, I am euro, if
Roland did, I should not know what to
think. But then Ellon is an only sister, and that makes a great difference,
and I am tbo youngest. Reginald
Merridew was in such a way ! I was
engaged for almost ovory dance beforo
he came. I quite enjoyed it, I filled
up my cards us I could, just to give
him a lesson. Men should bo kept in
thoir proper places, I novor thought
you showed half a spirit letting Edward Vernon carry you off just as he
pleased."
"My dear." said old Mrs. Morgan,
iifaking an endeavor to strike in, "we
hare not seen half so much of you
lately aa we like to do. My old man
misses you on his walk. Do go and
take a walk with bim, as your cold is
better."
"Oh don't send her away when I just
want to talk over, everything," suid
Emmn. "You never think what young
people like. I am sure you are very
kind nnd nice, grandmamma ; I always
say so. Whatever anyone muy think;
I always maintain that you have been
very nice and kind to ine: and kept mo
such a timo, when, I dure say, you ate
tired of me. But you don't remember
what other people like. Of course,
Hester wants to hear who was there,
and how every one wns looking, und
who danced with who, and all thnt.
There ure a hundred things wliich we
have to say to each other. Come up
with mo to my room, Hester, and then
we won't havo to bore grandmamma
and grandpapa. I have such a lot to
tell you. Ellon had such a lovely now
dress, old gold and black. It Bounds
much too old for her, but it wasn't, a
bit. It was quite a cliango among all
the whites and pinks. I just went
in my grenadine, I don't protend to
cope with the rich girls, you know.
If tho men want to dance with rich
dresses they must just leave me alone.
I am always straightforward. I say,
'Don't nsk mo unless you aro Buro yon
don't mind. But I suppose thuy like
my dnncing, or something, for I always
have my curd full. Sir Roger de Cov-
orly wus really fun. We wore ull
dancing. It aeomod about a mile going down tbe middle. It ia such a pity
you weren't there. Edward Vernon
danced it with—I really forget who he j
did dunce it with—ouo of the Miss
Bradley's, or Mary Wargravo, or one
of that sot. Are you really going out
with grandpapa, Hester I That iB awfully self-denying of you, to please the
old gentleman 1 And it ia so cold.
Grandmamma, I do think you should
not let hor go."
"She can hoar your report another
timo; indeed, she has heard a great
deal of it already," snid old, Mrs. Morgan. "You don't lose any timo, Emma; hut Hestor, if you are afraid—"
"Oh, I shouldn't go on any account,"
ened Emma, "with a bud cold. But
then I havo such dreadful colds wliun
I do havo them. I never get my nose
red, like Hester's, nor Iobo my voice,
but I get such a cough. I am so thankful I have not had one here. It gives
everybody so much troublo when you
get Ul on a visit, aud might just ub well
be at homo. There is grandpapa culling, I should just let him call, if it
was me. Well, Hester, if you will
go, I can't help it. Come in again, if
yuu are not afraid of tbo evening air,
and you shall hear all the rest ; or, if
you'll hnve me at tea-time, perhaps
that will he tho bust.   I'll go to you-
Tho old captain sighed as he went
nut, Emma was, aa it were, left
speaking, standing on the step of the
door, addressing Hestor, as she followed her old friend into the dusky afternoon of otio of those black days that
conclude the yoar. Very bluck days
they were on this occasion, not su cold
at December often is, without snow
any of the harsher signs of winter, but
also without sun or anv of the exbili-
anting sharpness of the frost. Evory*
thing was dry, but dark, the nkios
leaden, the vory common showing leas
green, Tho captain wont on before,
with a woolen comforter wrapped in
many folds about hia throat and woolen
mittens on the hands which grasped
hii stick with so much energy. Ho
struck it against tho ground us if ho
had been striking some one, as he hurried away.
"I think that girl wilt be Ihe death
of ui," he said—then repented of his
sharp uttoruiee. "I told you I thought
you wero a spiritual grandchild, Hester, what the child of our child whom
we lost, who nover bud u child, would
have been. And you havu spoiled us
fur the other thing-tho grandchild of
common life.''
"It ii a long timo since wo have
been out together," snid Hoster, nn thu
old man put its other hand, in its
large mitten, within her Blender arm.
"And you have in tbu meant)mo
been getting into somo of the muddles," he said, "It wns kind of my
old wife to hand you over to, mo Hester. We all think onr own experience
the best. She would like to hnve had
you all to herself, to find out ull about
it, and givo you tbe help of hor old
lights, but instead nf that she wns self-
denying, and handed you ovor to me.
And now let me hear what it is, and
seo if tho old ship's lantern will do you
any gootl."
"Am I in any muddles ?" asked Hester ; "I don't know. Perhaps thero is
nothing to toll. His so hard to divide one thing from anothor."
"So it is ; but when it is divided
it il io muoh eaiier to niannge," mud
the old captain. He paused a littlo to
give her time to speak, but as she did
not do io he resumed on on indifferent
subject, that the girl's confidence'
might not be forced. "1 am always
■glad when the old year is over. You
will My I'm an old foot for that, ns my
diyi are so few. But the first of January ii muoh gayer than tho first of
December, though they muy' bo exactly like each other. Whon you can
uy, there will be spring thin yenr—"
Captain Morgan," said Hestor, who
had been taking advantage of the pause
without paying any attention to what
he said, ''Catharine Vernou is angry
because I wear my mothor's pearls.
How ahould thai be 7"
"You must be mistaken, my dear,"
naitl the old captain, promptly. "Sbo
hus ber faults, but Catherine is novor
paltry, Hester.   That cannot be."
"Either you are vory much mistaken
about her or I am much mistaken
about hor," Hestor said.
The old man looked at her with a
smile on his face.
"I don't say anything against thut.
And which of ua is most likely to be
right 1" ho nsked. "I know her beforo
ynu were born."
"Oh, before I was born ! Does that
tell you anything about her conduct to
me ? Onco I wus not, but now I am ;
and somebody quite distinct from othor peoplo,"
"Very distinct," Captain Morgan
Buid.
"Then what does Bhe mean by it?"
cried Hester. " Sho cannot endure the
sight of me. Oh, I know sho is not
paltry in ouo way. She dues not
caro nbout money, as some people
do; but she is in another. Why should
sho care about what I wear 1 Did you
evor hear anything about my father I"
the girl said, raisini! her oyes suddenly
nnd looking bim full in tho face. The
old captain was so takon by surprise
thut be fell back a step in dismay.
"About your fathor!"
"About him and Catherino Vornon
—nud how it was ho went away. He
had as good a right tu tho bank as sho
hud, had ho not? I have uot thought
much about it, but I should liko to
know," said Hestor, with more coin-
poaure, "how it wns that she had it
and not papa."
"That was all before my time," said
Captain Morgan, who had recovered
himself in tho interval. "I did not
come hero, you know, till nfter. Aud
thon it is not naif I had been a Vernon, to understand all tho circumstances. I was not of the fumily, you
know."
"Tlint ia truo," said Hester, thoughtfully, and sho suffered herself to bo led
into safer subjects without any serious
attempts tb return to a question so unanswerable; while Captain Morgan, on
his side, woe too much ulnrmed by the
possibility of having to explain to hor
the steps which had led to her father's
expatriation to inquire into the "muddles" which he had rend in her court-
tenunco. And thus they mndo their
wuy home together without nny mutual
satisfaction. The captain was obliged
to own to, his wifo afterward that ho
had given Hester no uid or good advice.
"She asked mo about her father ;
aud was I going to bo so brutal ns to
tell the poor child what has always
been concealed from her?"
"Concealments are never good," Mrs.
Morgan said, shaking her head. " It
would bo better for her to know." But
the captain had an ensy victory when
ho said, "Should you like to bo the one
to toll her?" with defiance iu his
voice.
Thus the timo went on for Catherine Vernon's great Christinas party,
to whieh all Redborough wns asked.
It wiis not till tbe day beforo that Hester wus bold enough to declare hor intention not to go. "You must not bo
angry, mammu. What should I go
fm- V It is no pleasure. The moment
1 nm in Cntherino Vernon's honso I um
all wrong. 1 feel like n beggar, a poor
relation, a dependent upon her charity;
and she has no charity for ine. Don't
make mo go,"
"Oh, Hester, my darling," snid Mrs.
John, "it would never, never do to
stay awiiy whon everybody is thero. !
And you her relation, that ought to
wish to do her what honor you cau."
"Why should I wish to do her honor!
She has nover been kind to us. Sho
has never treated you ns sho ought to
have done. Sho hns never behaved to
us as u relation should, or even as a
gentlewoman should."
"Oh hush! ' Hester, hush I" anid
Mrs. John. "You don't know what
you aro speaking of. If you know nil,
you would know thnt Catherine hus behaved to us—better than wo havo hnd
nny right to expect."
"Then let me know nil, mothor,"
said Hester, sitting upright, her eyes
shining, hor whole fnce full of inquiry.
"I have felt lately that there must be
something which wns concealed from
mc.   Let me know all."
Thou Mrs. John faltered aud explained. "There ia nothing for you to
know. Dear, dear, you nre so literal.
You take everything oue says to you,
Hester, ns if one meant it. Those nro
just things that oue says— When I
snid if you knew nll, I mount—if you
were to consider properly, I meant, if
you saw things in n just light—"
"I think you moan something moro
thnn that," Heater snid,
"Wlint should I mean more? We
hud no claims upon her. Your poor
father hnd got his share. Ho had not,
perhaps, been very prudent with it,
but I nover understood anything about
business. Ho got his share—all that
ho had nny right to expect. Catharine
might have suid thnt, when we camo
back so poor; but she did not. Hestor, you have forgotten what she has
done for us. Oh, my dear, if you
knew all! No, I don't mean that
thoro is anything to know—but juBt if
you would think— Hester, you must
not insult all Redborough by refusing
to go to her party. You must not, indeed yon muat not. If you do, yon
will break my heart,"
"What I do is of no importance to
Cathorino Vernon, Oh, mother, do
not make me go. It ia mcro tlmu I
cun bear."
"But you uro of importance, and
sho would fuel it deeply, Oh, Hester,
for" my salco !" Mra. John criod, with
tears in hor eyea. Sho would not bo
turned away froin the subject or postpone it. Hor daughter hnd never Been
hor so deeply in earnest, ho intent on
huving hur wny, before. On previous
occasions it hnd beeu Hester that had
won the dny. But this tiinu the girl
hnd to givo way to tho impniisionod
earnestness of her mother, which in
so mild a woman was strange to Bee,
******
Catherine's Christmas party took in
all Redb .rough. It was nn assembly
to which the best peoplo in tho placo
considered themsolves bound to go,
not withstanding that many of the
smull people wero thero nlso. Every
body, indeed, wna supposed to come,
nnd all classes were represented. The
respectable old olorks, who hnd spent
their lives in the bunk, bilked upon
equal terms, according to the fiction of
socioty, with the magnates nf tho town,
nnd Edward und Hurry Vernon, %and
others of tho golden youth, asked their
daughters to (Twice. The grent ladies
in thoir jewels lat about upon the so*

clerk's, in their ribbons. All was supposed to bo equality and happiness;
if it woro not so, then the Unit wns

not of tho hostess, who walked about
from ono to another, and whb in civil

Frcemniitlu oould not help whispering
