Friday Evening, Jan. no. 1888. ■
From Mount Lehman.
rl'orrenpondeuce of the Columbian
Mount Lehman, Jan. 7.—The
publio scliool opened on tlio 2nd
inst. with 20 pupils in attendance.
—We hove hud some very cold
weather lately. During two days
last week the thermometer. reached
zero. loo on the. river has been
strong enough tb make crossing
on foot safe. The wind and snow
storm of the 12th was the worst ex
perienced here for many years, and
made some people wonder if some
Manitoba weather had not yet loose,
—Stook looks well, und seems to be
well provided with food.—The peo]
pie in this vicinity aro quite jubilant over the prospect of the
opening of the Sumas dyking
lands to settlement under the
provincial goveninent. — Tenders
are asked for the mail service between this place and Matsqui post-
office, and there appears to be considerable competition in the matter.
Mr, Geo. Straebel has resigned his
position as mail carrier between
Alder Grove and Mt. Lehman, and
Mr. F. Jackman takes his place.
Alder Grove had a 8700 tire a few
days ago, the residence of the Shepherd Bros., with valuable contents,
having been burned.—The second
meeting of the debating society
took plaoe on the 13th inst., the
subject being whether war
or intemperance has destroyed the
most men. Mr. E. Sulley conducted the debate on behalf of intemperance, and Mr. J. E. Morrison contended for war, nnd won the
debate. During the evening songs
nnd recitations wero given by Mr.
D. W, Sutherland, Sta,TjL Lehman, Miss A. McCalluur, ati'd ■btlicfs;
This society is proving a great
source of amusement, and is mooting with much success. Next
debate takes place on the 27th,
when the contest will be between
the pen and the sword.—Since the
beginning of the Now Tear Mr. T.
H. Lehman has taken the cake as u
successful destroyer of wild animals. Ho has killed one fisher, two
wild cats, and one coon. He also
killed the Xmas panther, which was
a monster, measuring about 12 feet
from tip to tip. Judging from the
number of footprints in the snow
about our roads, we may expect to
hear of one or two more of these
animal being taken shortly.

The newly elected council met at
the Town Hall on Monday January
16th. Present the Reeve, J. Maxwell, and Couns. Jenkins, Houston,

in opium between Victoria and tho
Unitod Strifes could be stopped."

On the morning of the Ilth inst.
the first flour train from Minneapolis over the Sault Ste. Marie Railway arrived at Montreal on its way
to Boston. The event is worthy of
more than a passing notice. It is
expected this train is only the beginning of-a veiy extensive trado
over Canadian roads between the
grain-growing states and thu east.
The train consisted of 19 cars, and
created quite a little sensation in
the Canadian metropolis. There is
every reason to believe that this
trade will become a most important
factor in the business of the Canadian Pacific and Grand Trunk Railway!. The C. F. R. has made tbe
connection, and the G. T. R. expects to mako it this year. The
Sault Ste, Marie route through Oanada ia by a good deal the shortest
route between the northern states
and the eastern seaboard, and it will
not be easy for American roads to
take this trade away from Canada.
It will become an important part
alio of a new route between tbe
Atlantic and Pacific. Connection
via the "Soo" is made between the
Northern Pacific in the west and
the 0. P. R. and Grand Trunk in
the east, and a very convenient and
short transcontinental route is the
result.
As the meeting of the provincial
legislature is now near at hand, we
venture again to urge upon the government and the house the impor-
tince of making some regulation
that will prevent the waste which
goes on from year to year in connection with public rood-making.
We have many times referred to
the folly, of constructing roads in
this district late in the season. In
many casts it is money thrown
away. Roads, we repeat for the
hundredth time, should always be
made as early in the season as possible. It is the testimony of all
experienced road-makers that money expended on road beds late in the
sunnier might as well be thrown
into the river, unless the bed is
made of gravel. Fresh earth thrown
on the road just before the rainy
season-simply aggravates the situation by making the mud deeper
than it otherwise would be. We
cannot too strongly urge upon the
authorises she necessity of earnest
attention to this matter. The provincial revenues are very limited at
best, and never equal to the demands made upon them. It is of
the greatest importance, therefore,
that our income should be handled
with the utmost economy so that
the largest possible results may be
obtained from it. It would be a
great deal better if the appropriations for one year were to remain
unexpended so as to make them
available for operations early next
season. Some of the roads made in
this dertrict last year were worse a
great deal at the end of the season
than at the beginning.
The Ottawa correspondent of tho
Mail says Capt. Webber's letter,
stating, that unless the customs regulations were relaxed the China
steamers must discontinue calling at
Esquimalt or Victoria, haa been
brought to the attention of the minister of customs, who remarked that
"the department had had somo correspondence in regard to this difficulty at Victoria, The people thero
were naturally stirred up, but what
Oapb Webber characterized us the
regulations of the department would
be more properly spoken of as the
law of the land. They could not
permit a course in the case of the
Ohina steamers ut Victoria difleient
from that provided by the statute
for every port in the country, and
Oapt. Webber knows that." From
this it would seem that Capt. Webber will have to take water, or the
steamers will pass by Victoria without calling. This would bo unfortunate, for it would be much better
if arrangements could be made to
meet the views of all parties. There
can be no objection to the steamers
calling at Victoria or Esquimalt if
it can be done without inourring
each delay as might be used against
the efficiency and success of the line.
It ia -of the greatest importance,
however, that the steamers should
make the full trip to their terminal
point as speedily as possible, and if
calling fit Vancouver Island in-
Volitaany considerable loss of time,
they will probably not call. It must
be eSBfeesed that on the mainland
there is a good deal of indifference
as to whether they call at Victoria
or not, and this indifference has
arisen from the conduct of Victorians themselves, or, rather, from
Victoria newspapers which are supposed to represent .publio opinion.
It is not forgotten that when the
people of that city succeeded in get-
ting, the steamers to sail, a portion
of the pcese intimated that the next
move would be to stop them there
and have the passengers and freight
lightered to the mainland. It is
tbispeUcy bf extreme selfishness
whlMi coming to the surfaoe onoe
in a while, has almost completely
alienated the sympathies of main
landers from the capital. The feeling hen, therefore, is that if the
Chins steainem ean make it convenient to eall at VWoriaontteir way
to and from the mainland  without
loss of time, no objection will bo
raised; but if such an arrangement
cannot be carried out on these lines,
Victoria will have to be content to
take her Ohina.freight from the
central distributing point on the
mainland.

A wild storm was raging without, -and
twilight found us irlustered alrout the flro
that liad been laid on the hearth of the
roomv old hall.
The dull, rainy day had depressed all
our aplrits,, and it rwas to enlivon us by ■ a
diversion oi somenort thBt Royal llaynn,
the Uie of everypltbering honored by bis
prefinee, bad :j>liui^«d lnto.ahonr.1 of
treaaiuies, accumnUteil from the Amazon
to the'Ganges ana-"iurthwt-Ind," and
brought foHh the interesting drug.
Boyal Kayne! I seem to see him now
SS J B»w him that night, with tho ruddy
firelight flashing over his dark, splendid
face and noble figurfi, aekimUy in Waring as he w«s-m:i^w»!*>*MI[<tlie

',Telliis»methiiig«l»<>»>*iilr-**9'"ie,"
entreated Vera, my six month a bHJei
lifting her sweet face and mvolur^yy
drawing nearer.
I had noticed before how this princelv
man, with his winning smile and wondrous vitality, aeemed to attract weaker
natures. Children always gathered about
him, and once or twice, for our diversion.-
he had charmed the wild, beautiful
songsters from tlieir native shrines to
perch upon his hand.
But it gave m»« iealoui-^ng that my
innocent Vera should fall ever so slightly
under hia spell.
"I do not know from what it is prepared, or the use the Brahmins make of
it, Mrs. Delmar," ho replied, in the soft,
musical tones that conatituttd one ol bis
greatest charms; "but itr ia. said taafloct
the mind very, strangely. While uarfcr
its influence, the braiii'warkl.withiiuch
lightning-like rapidity that one may fancy
himself to pass through all the stirring
events of along life ina vary few momenta
oi time."
The way in which his glowing dark
eyea lingered upon my wife's face irritated me, and I Naidrsool*ingly:
"Nonsense I I am not so credulous aa
to believe it has any auch power aa you
claim for it."
"The drug Is harmlnw. Perhaps you
would like to test it?"
"Ob, Roger, don't!" cried Vera, in
alarm.
The only effect of her appeal was to
confirm the resolve I had taken the instant Bayne addressed those words to
me, as if daring, me to make the experiment.
"What is the dose?" I asked, taking
the vial in my own. band.
"Two drops in hall a glass of water," he
replied.
"Here are four—a double portion," and
I deliberately, meaanred them into a
glass that stood on a table,at my.«iuow.
"I shall soon know litter* is any virtue
in the drug."
Swallowing the last drop of the preparation, X leaned back in my aaay-ehair,
gazing at Boyal Bayne halt-contemptuously.
He returnedaajMook, Md all at owe
it seemed as if something black fell before my eyes. It waa gone in a moment,
and then I perceived that Vera was also I
regarding me with a athttge, speculating
expression I had never seen upon her
face before, „■-■;*
"How do you feel, Kager?" she aaked,
in what was evidently intended for a
solicitous tone.
"Very much Mutual. '."Ihe drug is a
humbug."
Bayne frowned.
"You think to because you are of a
temperament to throw off ita influence.
But it certainly would affect seme persons
precisely as I nave described."
My only aomrn wat* contmqptaoai
smile. ,
' Shortly aftennrd hum ona-mnecr-s
there were half a dbuif guetU laying in
the house—and the ciscle wat broken.
But Bayne and my wife reaatined.
When they fancied I hadbeconw inter-

An the<lay-**oroon, «n>Vt.V..r>rwW"'l
lour approached. Vera lairginugUr «.;-
runed, hereelf, and left her guwita. A rtrrr
toing up-stairs, she stole forth at a side
loor, and walked swiftly in the direction
>f tho summer-houso.
It was the sisnil for which I waited.
Prorreo line to Tiber's kennel, aud loosing
lis chain, bade him follow me.
The summer-houso was a quaint structure of two stories, standing in a remote
pnrt of tlio grounds. I'lrusu shrubbery
sir nt it in.
Takingljiger by the ooBar, I drew him
mirier cover nf Bonie -bushes near Urn
door, rwli'rro ho waa entirely concealed
from observation."
"Let no one pass, sir," I sniil in a fierce
whisper, anil the intelligent niiiinal gave
a low growl, as though he fully understood what wasexpectelof liirn.
Arfliglitof stairs led iron In ground
floorto tho more eorufortarl.r room alroru.
Vera's faco was a study when n'ui
heard iny step, and, looking up. taw m
standing in the open iloor. The lliinh
died suddenly out of her cheeks, the
eager light from her eyes. She started
up from the rustic seat, pallid and trembling.
"Why, Boger, what brings you hero ?"
she stammered. "Did you come to seek
'ne?"
"Yes, Vera," I answered, drawing her
down beside uie upon the bench. "Come,
be seated again. It will be so nice lo
have tMU-atcle for. once, away from our
guests."
I spoke calmly, bnt she must have seen
something unusual in my face; or she
may have hoped to get me away before
her lover appeared. Alt at once she began to struggle in my arms.
"bet line go, lioger. I cannot remain
here. Our guests will wonder at our absence, and take oriense. Let u» return to
the bouse.   At o ee."
"Wait. Sing j ist one of the old songo
with which you i.scd to enchant me.
•'Another time, Boger.   Beally—"
She waa struggling again. I held her
«a in a vise.
Suddenly a step sounded in tho path
below. Vera gr.'W still as death all at
once, a look of awful terror creeping over
her livid face.
While we remained motionless! staring
into each other's eyes, a borrr.w grow!
came to our ear, auccee led immediately
by a wild, terri iirl.l cry. Vera seemed
to comprehend ll 6 trut'.r instantly.
"Tiger!" she ]'.rated rather than said.
"You have let lr u looie!"
Then ahe itmr pod on her knees, and
lifted her clasp-. hands.
"Boger, be mi-irifull Call off the brute.
Murder will be < one. (lo, for Heaven's
take I or it will   e too late."
I listened will smiling lips.
A snarling t. md came from below,
mingled with in ans of pain. Even these
died away at la.- .
Vera made ir desperate effort, broke
bom my hold, and rushed screaming
down the stairs.
I followed, .. m,  m\  -
a horrible sight gaze .(hen I
maehed the lawn. Boyal Bayne lay
across the path, bruised and bleeding,
his white face and staring eyes upturned
to the pitiless sky. Tiger still crouched
beside nis victim, hia Java dripping with
gore.
Vera tottered forward, and flung her-
tell across the dead horiy of her lover.
"Oh, Heaven I lie is ilea 11"
Her wild grief maddened mc. I seizor!
her roughly by tlio urui ami lifted her up.
'The white dreBs she-wore, with ita guy

"A Haniy, one ever jwoposed to you

important question had been put and
satisfactorily answered.
"Cieorge Simpson came very near it
last night," she replied, shyly. "He wat
just on the point of asking me to be hit
wife when mamma came into the parlor.
-But I am very glad sho did," went on the
tI earnestly. ^'1 don't think I would

Union Meeting**.
Arrangements have been made by
the evangelical ministers of tho city to
hold union servioes evory Sunday
evening in the Drill Shed. These
meetings will begin after regular service* in the churches, about 8:15.
The purpose of these meetings is to
reach such persons as do uot often
visit churches, and it ia hoped there
will bo a large attendance of this class.
The meetings will be brief and interesting.

The Armstrong Block.
The offices in tho Armstrong block,
which are now completed and ready
for occupation, aro probably tho best
in the city for general office uses. They
number 7 in all and are large, well
lighted and comfortable. A fine broad
stairway leads up to the second flat on
which tho offices are located. Four
of the apartments face on Columbia
street and ihe other three overlook
the river, of which a splendid view is
obtained. Tho rooms are so arranged
as to be let in suites if required. It is
not likely such fine offices as theso are,
will be allowed to remain vacant long.
The Quickest on Itcron!.  „
The ship New York, Capt. Hughes,
laden with V. C, Co's. coal, made the
trip from Nanaimo to San Francisco
in four days and ten hours. This is
said to be the quickest trip on record
between the two ports and Captain
Hughes gallantly places the "broom at
masthead." At San Francisco, whore
where Capt. Hughes is long and favorably known, ho was serenaded by a
brass band in honor of his remarkable
short voyago. Tho record shows whut
a good ship, a capable commander and
a strong brcezo can effect. Iu a
straight course the distance between
Nanaimo and San Francisco is about
1000 miles. —Free Press.
A Serious     : 'JiTmt.   ■
We learn to-day that Mr. T. D.
Lindsay, who resides on Lulu Island
nearly opposite Ladners, met with a
sorious accident a few days ago. Taking advantage of tho the snow, ho
took his children out for a sleigh-ride.
There was no shaft or pole on tlie
sleigh, and, of course, it soon began to
come in contact with the heels of the
horses. The animals became frightened and began kicking and plunging,
and by some means Mr. Lindsay had
his collar-bone broken and his shoulder dislocated. It wus two days before he could get medical aid, and his
Bufferings in the mean time must have
been very great. Last spring Mr.
Lindsay had the misfortune to loose
his wife, and was left with a family of
several young children.
The Contented Election.
Last night beforo leaving the bench
His Lordship held that Mr. Elliott was
elected by a majority nf two votes over
Mr. Pearson. Mr. Atkinson, for tho
repondents took objection, before the
recount, to Mr. Elliott's qualification
for councillor on the ground that lio
(Mr. Elliott) has disqualified as being
a sharodolder in the Gas Co., whieh had
a contract with the city. Mr. McColl,
for the petitioners, argued against the
objection. His . Lordship decided
against the objection, subject to any
authorities Mr. Atkinson might be
able to produce during a further hearing. This morning consent was given
Mr. Atkinson, on behalf of Mr. Pearson, tc tile, on or bef re the 21 th inst.,
a counter petition against the election
of Messrs. Shiles, Herring and Elliott,
ou the grounds of irrigularitics in the
election. It is now almost certain
that a new election will be held in St.
George's Ward. Tho date has nut yet
been fixed for the new election in St.
Andrews Ward.
Libelling VrMuiluiitrr.
Tho Winnipeg Coll oi the 14th iuat.
contains a British Columbia weather
report, or rather what purports to bo
such, but which was evidently manufactured in Winnipeg for tho benefit of
intending emigrants. According to
the Call the thermometer registered
10° below zero at Victoria, and 12 s
below at Westminster on the 13th.
The truth of the matter is that tho
lowest reading of tho thermometer
this season, at Westminster, has beon
2 ° above zero, and that was only for
one night; We are rather fond of cold
weather in Westminster and a yenr like
the present when wo can fasten on our
elub skates and perform the "double
roll'' and cut the figure 8 to an admiring audience of Columbia's fair daughters, makes us thankful for the eld
breezes blown from the prairies. - But
we are also easily pleased, and in the
most friendly manner would ask our
prairie cotemporary to divert his wonderful imagination into a more profitable channel of usefulness, and in look
of something more exciting, to stick to
wheat standards and blizzards.
A, D. Noyen, Newark, Michigan,
writes; "I have inquired at tho tiro a
stores for Dr. Thomas' Eclectric Oil, hut
havo failed to find it. We brought a
bottle with us from Quebec, but it is
nearly gone, and we do not want to ba
without it, as my wife is troubled with a
pain in the shoulder, and nothing else
gives relief.   Can you send us some.

LAST NIGHT'S DESPATCHES.
HON.   THOMAS  WHITE   ON   COMMCltCIAL
UNION.
London, Jan. If).—Mr. Norman's
interview with the Hon. Thos. White,
minister of the interior, on commercial
union was published to-day. What
Mr. Whito stated seems to be quite in
accord with the general British opinion. It is quite understood here that
Canada will act in theso commercial
matters just as sho feels necessary for
her own future, though it is equally as
fully recognized that Canadians- seo
how fatso to their own interests it
would be to make such a commercial
and political surrender to the United
States as Mr. Whito clearly shows
commercial union would involve

lump of coal or "a stick of firewood in the
market. The people have confiscated all
tho fuel of tlio Manitoba Company, and
torn down and burned their railroad
buildings. The men have beeu carrying
gpal in aacka across the country, eight
miles from Beardsley. Great indignation is shown toward the railroad officials for not trying to open the road
from Morris, forty miles north-cast of
here.
