THE MINNESOTA FLOODS.

in tlio provincial tiBtimatcs fov
this yeni wo notice the Rum of $4,-
350 Bet down for the government
houso at "Viotoria. Lust year the
Sum appropriated for this establishment was $3,400. Prom 1880 to
the end of the current fiscal yenr
tho cost of maintaining the government house has been §30,099, and
the appropriation asked for this
year will make it $35,549 for the
eight years. This seems a large
sum. No ono will say that the
lieutenant-govornor should not have
a residence somewhat in keeping
with the dignity of his position, and
that it ought to bo well furnished,
but an examination of the items
which compose these large sums
leads us to wonder what sort of a
place it can be after all. In eight
years the amount expended for " repairs" is $7,960—almost sufficient
to erect a new residence good enough
for a governor. The oost of furniture during that period was $8,150,
and §1,800 for "fencing." The
public may wonder what extent of
renl eBtate Burrounds tho gubernatorial.mansion when it takes §1,800
to fenoe it. But there is another
feature about this establishment
which strikes one as peculiar, and
thut is the constant recurrence of
repairs and fencing. Of the sura
proposed to be voted for government
house this year, $1,500 is for repairs,
§1,000 for furniture, and §500 for
fencing. Standing by themselvos
these sums may not seem large, but
we find that last year §250 was appropriated for repairs to government
house, §500 for furniture, and §200
for fencing. It 188C we had §250
for repairs, §450 for furniture nnd
§3911 for fencing. Tho previous ynnr
it stood, S400 for repairs, §550 for
furniture, and §100 for fencing. In
1884 it was §300 for repairs, §300
for furniture, and §75 for fencing.
It is to bo hoped that this placo may
ho securely fenced in the course of
time; but one may lio pardoned for
wondering if it wouldn't be cheaper
iu the long run to build a now government house und fence instead of
throwing away such large sums
every year on the present establishment
Better Late than Never.
Although rather late in the day,
the telegram from Mr. D. Ohisholm,
II. P., to the city council, confirms
the general reports in respect to the
monopoly clause and disallowance.
Of course the readers of The Columbus knew a week ago that n settle
ment had been reached between the
Canadian government and the O. P.
II. which secured the abandonment
of the monopoly clause. This agreement necessarily carried with it the
abandonment of disallowance, and
disallowance is the only thing that
ever Btood in the way of the Westminster Southern Railway. The
monopoly clause, it is well known,
never applied either to British Columbia or Manitoba; but the government of Sir John seems to have made
a secret bargain with the syndicate
that no charters for competing roads
in these provinces would be allowed.
If the extinguishment of the monopoly clause did not carry with it
free railway construction to the border, it would be an empty concession; for the federal government
could go on pursuing the very policy
of disallowance which hus caused so
much friction and discontent. So
one knows better than Sir John
that the temper of the people of
Manitoba is such as to make trifling
in such a matter dangerous. The
circumstances mako it absolutely
necessary that disallowance should
be abandoned, and undoubtedly this
follows the extinguishment cf monopoly. It is asserted that Mr.
Greenway has had a satisfactory interview with the managers of the
Grand Trunk and Northern Paoific
and other railways whioh aro iu a
position to compete for the carrying
trade of Manitoba and the northwest, and it is expected that one or
more competing lines will be extended into that region during the
present season. Already the fruits
oi the new policy ore abundantly appearing. Immigrants are pouring
into tbe country, and tbe shares of
the O. P. K., instead of falling, have
advanced to a point never beforo
reached. The new policy will surely ba of immense advantage to the
whole of the oountry lying west of
Lake Superior, nnd we are persuad
ed it will also benefit the great
Canadian transcontinental railway
itself. With respect to British Columbia, the advantage will be considerable. The 0. P. R. trado with
the sound and Oregon and California
has developed into large proportions;
but tbti trade is carried on under
difficulties. Goods coming from the
eastern states lor these points are
carried through Canada in bond, in
sealed oars. At Vancouver the cars
must remain sealed until the steamer arrives to take the goods to their
destination, as the U. S. government
refuses to permit them to be plncec
in a bonded warehouse there. If the
O. P. R. bad connection with the
Paoific eoast system by the Wostminster Southern,, this difficulty
would be removed. The sealed cars
would be sent through lo their destitution without tran**ipment, and
the goods would be delivered in
muoh better shape than the; can be
underwfahtg-amBigemertt*
Lute Canadian News.
Quebec, April 4.—Mercier's organ
says that tbe Prototantt will shortly
have a representative in the cabinet.
Moxireal, April 4,-Tlio OtmlU,
in a long article on tho monopoly
question, admits in a round-about way
that tlio basis of settlement i»ns stated
in the London Financial News, viz:
The government guarantees C. P. R.
bonds to tho extent of §14,000,000,
thereby ciiabling'the company to procure money at3i instead of 5 per cent.,
thus saving a large amount in interest.
The urticle intimates that special efforts
will bo made to improve and maintain
the North Shore section.
The Canadian Pacific has completed
the purchaBo of the Waterloo and Magog road, portions of which will be
uaed as a short line to tho Atlantic.
The Grand Trunk has acquired the
Central Stanstead, .Sheil'ord and
Ohambly. Both roads have been
hitherto operated by the Contral Yor-
mont at a loss.
Winnipeg, April 5.—Mr. Greenway, speaking in St. Paul, said it was
possiblo that both tho Northern
Pacifio and Manitoba ronds would havo
running powors ovor tho lied Itivor
Valley line, which would bo owned by
tho Manitoba government. Ho Baid
possibly tho Manitoba road will purchase the EmerBon branch from the
C. P. R. The American roads aro
anxious to tap Manitoba, and the territories to the west, iu hrrlf n dozen
places.
Ottawa, April 5.—Tho Manitoba &
Northwestern rond lias got its bill, reducing the number of miles to be constructed eaoh year to twonty, through
the legislative committee of the House
of Commons.
The Minister of Justice has introduced a bill to amend the olection act.
Among the provisions is one that the
elections in tho Northwest Territories
and British Columbia shrill tako place
on the same dato as in other provinces.

"How pretty vour roiiBiu is! 1'aul
riosslvn eairl, lazily, to Miss Bertha May,

"Ycb," 1'ertha replied, her eye*, (ol.
IiiwIm n little tieuiu la bluo, dancina
'villi the keen enjoyment and jest that
roiiie only to tlio very young, ".-he will

formed 'and she tets over her hoyden

1 "1 like atom-bov girl,1! was the reply.
"Mind, I don't racoft ft last woman.
Hint is simply detostuble; but a girl who
is natural unit has tliu fresh vivacity of
youth."
"You will find plonty of fresh vivacity
in llella," Bertha replied, dryly. "She
Is rather overpowering to tny taate,
though I love her dearly.
Then a mustacheil, perfumed exquisite claimed Mibs May (or a gallop, and
1'aui liosalyu wos loft alone in Iris corner. A tall, tnoad-slioiilderod man, with
a face of faultless regularity of feature;
'large gray eves, whose color cliangrril
with every amotion, and a lunguld milliner, that Buited well the slight, very
alight, rirawl in his voice.
Tlie littlo figure ho was watching wns
most unlike tho stately blonde with
whom ho had been conversing, the
daughter of his hostess,
i lsai ello Huntley was neither blonde
nor brunette, having rr fresh, clear complexion, largo brown eyes, und a profit-
sion of short, nut-brown curls, that
nestled closely round her shapely little
head. She :was small and thin, being
at. the ago whon scragginess is fully developed, and her movements were far
too abrupt for grace; yet she was pretty,
too, as she lifted Ker great eyes to her
partner's faco and revealed a row of
m'.lk white teeth in some laughing remark.
Whon she sat down near her aunt.
Paul sauntered across tho room and
commenced a conversation with Jlra.
May, which led, as ho hoped it would,
tn nn introduction to "my niece, Miss
Huntley."
"This is our nearest neighbor, Tlollrr,"
tho lndv said; "so you will meet him
often this summer.' And Hello, too
entirely unconscious of her selfhood to
be bashful, held out her gloved hand,
,and gave 5Ir. Hocslyn a schoolgirl's grip
of welcome,1
(51 rs. .May left them together, ond Hollo

--.o reply following this startling pinna of
iu oi-mation, Bhe added:
"Bertha drove mc p.ist your placo

"You did not," lie snid slowly, watching with lazy admiration the quick
chnnges of the expreasive face.
"I thought how awfully jolly it must
be to own that lovely liousn ami grounds
and do just as you plcnso. Whon I leavo
school I've got to U'lieli, you know, in
tho city; so all the country I ever s.-o is

"Is she'."' questioned Jiaul, amused at
Iter frankness.
"Awfully I" with a groat sigh. "I'vo
cot no father nor mother, only Uncle
Frank, and ho's in i liii.a—and Aunt
May. Bnt Bertha tries to make up in
vncatlon for the loncsomencss the rest
of tho time.' Why, do you know, slur

"Will you wans, now'."' said 1'aul • nud
_;;i n inoiiienLhcbarltakenaplaceamong
Itlre dancers, and was waltzing with tlio
^e rv graco of mo'ion that is po-iiuve
[iii'i'riry ti one who loves dancing for its
n'vii sake.
After thn waltz wns over he led his
JMitr.er to a vine covered balcony, where
hey paced up and down in the summer
itarlight ana chatted of mnny things,
-oniething in tho frank, bright vivacity
ft lella Huntley had a grent charm for
lio world-weary main who had traveled
brough the best society of two continents, and bad his heart still his own,
'hough it had boon badly bruised and
iiiiiitured ia his thirty years of lifo's
Viirfaro.
T They talked of pictures, nnd 1'nul in-
I'itirrl Holla to view tho collection ho hail
ought from abroad; ot books, and be
[iroiniscd her somo not procurable in
this country, of music, and ho had an
j'Krard" that nobody opened.
!, Looking back, aflcr hor head pressed
ilie pillow, Bella wondered if thero was
I'ver such a delightful party and the
walk on the balcony, the soft eyes of
! nul liosslyn, woro cortninly most prominent in the delights of the evening.
And he, smoking a cigar fn his lonely
library, yawned and voted all parties a
"bore/ country seat gatherings wont
of all.
"fn the city one can escape on plea of i
another engagement," he thought, and
Mien his musing took another form, and
lio concluded that he most marry and
settle down,
Tho home of Aire. May being separated from that of Mr. liosslyn bv only
a slight iron fence, it was but natural tho
voting man shonld find himself often in
'•liis neighbor's grounds strolling under
'the trees in the morning, playing croquet
tu tho afternoon or sentimentalizing
upon tho porch by moonlight. And the
st,rind of his low, musical voice, tho sight
nf his handsome faca, grew to be dangerously pleasant to Bella.
Ho had rend deeply, had travolod
lunch, nnd the girl, as the happy davs
flow along, became so much moro sedate
Hint Bertha noticed with a keen pang
Hi a dawning womanhood whose source
she mussed only too well. Sho saw the
careless dress becoming the subject of
dulnty finish, the brown looks carefully
i urlcd iiis'orul of being combed hastily
| to triirglo as they would, knots of ribbon
(It'll und' r snowy rullles, where hastily
binned collars were before. Loving her
liltle cousin, sho trembled, knowing
[what a sensltivo bruin and heart sho
earned under her hrusk manners. And
th" man of the world studied the frank,
expressive face to seo how he could
iiirlte It Hush ami brighten by bis praise
or droop under iris illsipprovnl of asenti-
ii cut or oven n ribbon. He liked to
■w trli the changing color upon the round
check, the Hash of mistiness of tlie large
mo* uud the quivers of Iho sensitive
Jiioiithi and, being of a thoroughly aolf-
isli nature, ho Dover thought of tho
i'x ,uiaite delicacy of the instrument
Ihnt answered to quickly to his lightest
(words.
Vot, in a stately fashion, he was wooing
I'll.hi  May  for his bride.   She was
3t.ii dsoinp, would ho wonllhy nnd would
(rVsido gracefully ovor hia house.   So
.nro  moonlight night, when  they sat
' iiloiio on the. wide balcony, lie asked.her
; in he bin wife, neither of thorn seeing a
llltle white robed llgnre behind tbo hire
j cm talus of tho dinning room window,
Leila's heart scorned to stop aa she
hcrir.l the proposal.   In a second the
child wns a woman, n woman scorned.
Clear .'b a belle cnino Bcrthu's voico:
"You are mistakon, Mr. liosslyn; I
am not Bella."
"HollaI' with a light laugh, "why
•surely you do not Imagino I wish to
marry that child ?''
"■i-Tiois tli. Many girls marry at that-
ago.''
"A bread nnd butter school girl? Ten
years itorn row sliowill be a glorious
woman; hut she is a more girl."
"Vet yon have wooed her asa woman."
"Vol ti,intake I I never wooed her?
Bni'iv. a iiiriu ol my age may talk to a
cirri f of hers without misconstruction,
But vou, l'« rtlia, vott surely have read
mv 'e itiri--i'oIruly,''
'"1 rend ru love lor mo there," was the
qui t reply, "and if there were nny no
echo livos.in my heart. Wo could never
be li ppy together, Mr. Losslyn. The
memory of my littlo cousin's wrongs
Would prevent that."
11 j iricrl to move her hy well-acted
pathos, but sho was firm, nml he left her
nt Inst. While his stop still rang upon
thu walk a liltle figure glided through
tho open window anrl crept into bertha's
sinrs sobbing, but tearless, a tierce, hot
ni ,rri' nuriiing the whole i.aturo.
"ll, rtirn, he did tell tne that I was tho
only ori.i ho ever mot wlro thoroughly
liii.'.l his id n of perfect, tender wonian-
I.outI. l!o itidl Ho Baid—he said—"
(tears euro now.) "Oh! what has he
mil Hri'UtO tirnko me lovo him? And ho
love! y.rri all the time."
"ilo loves no ono but himself," Slid
Pol trni, nil ber gentle nature roused to
in ignution. "He is not worth ono tear,
belli.'1 .   '.
"I know. But let mo cry, Bertha, let
mo civ."
Tenderly Bertha bold tho littlo figure
in a close embrace, now nnd then pressing sort kisses upon the tenr-BtainerX face,
until tho passion of grief has exhnusted
itself, nml tier child—who is a child ao
more art. r lo day—rests passive and e*c-
hriu-tcd in her arms.
'iho autumn comes, the holidays are
over, nnd a pale, quiet girl goes back to
hoar Img school, where I nolo l''r.rnk
pays rill the or-phnn's expenses and pro-
pn'v s to irriike. tier a teacher. Two year!
gii.lt! along, Three, nnd once, moro Bella
llinill y rs her Aunt May's guest. In
all tr s a three yoarsshe has never .been
to lira old honse; but licilli.i is married
nu t in another part of tho world, and her
aunt iB lonely. So Bella to ires for a
long visit; in fact, this will he her home
until wedding bells ring for tier, too.
1' or t rit'iir Frank is dead, nnd Bella need
tic er tench, being heiress to tho large
fort rn r the bachelor uncle Iras made in
twenty years of trado iu China.,
'1 lie yc .rs of abseueo had changed tho
impulsive child into a woman of .rare
bciituv, of a riuii't dignity that suited
well tbe tall, well-developed figure and
statu Situ regularity of feature. The
clnsr r.irg nut brown curls had lost none
of iheir w.r.ing luxurienre, though the
lrc.se:! I Li it, unbound, fell far below
I clip's waist were gather -rl awny from
the low, bro.id brow, and mado rich
ma rscs of curls tit the back of the pretty
hend.
When Laid Losslyn accepted Mrs.
May's invitation to a social gathering to
welcome her niece bo was wholly unprepared for llie change in tho girl ho had
tonrliy forgotten until the note recalled
her n'nrle.* He was not a man given to
domons.ration of feeling, but he could
not repiTuss the admiration in his eyes
when lie bowed in acknowledgment of
Bella's greeting. Memory brought him
fleeting vision of n thin, gawky girl, with
great mown.oyos and a frank, bright
face, clad in the simplest of muslin
dresses. 	
lteality brought him a tall, beautiful
woman, with snowy round anna and
shoulders, upon which sparkled costly
jewels-u tall, graceful figure, clad in a
shimmering lace covorod silk, with
rnrvsii's of curls cau'ht by a.diamond-
iiiiiied comb, and tiny hands with glit-
tcrirn rings.
Tlie frank face, tho clonr, ringing voice
were gone, too, and yet tho low, ox-
quisitoiy modulated tones could leavo
no regret for any memory of different
ones.
Before bo realizod tbo fascination that
hold him, Paul Uosslyn was conversing
ns ho rarely conversod to man or woman.
The quiot immobility of the lovely fuce
roused him to efforts to stir it to animation that quito destroyed alt his habitual
latmuor, and he dropped the faint drawl
to try to interest his listener in himself
and subjects.
Wben sho smiled a strange thrill of
pleasure stirred his heart, nnd when she
senniednb-tracted he experienced it throb
of disappointment that was a new sensation in his petted life.
Lor, with tho one exception of Bertha's
refusal, 1 nul had met no rebuffs iu bis
mnny flirtations nt homo or ubio.i 1.
With the facility that can only attend
tiro utterly self-absorbed man, ho ha.I
won silly hearts and thrown them aside
till ho bolieved his handsome face and
tender eyes irresistible. He was uot surprised when, after the flrst quiet greeting, Bella gave tokens of pleasure at his
approach, entered readily into conversation with him nnd chose him often in
crowded assemblages for her escort, it
was a gay season, and tho heiress was
invited to all tho meetings for youn;
people, in doors or out, and 1'uul met her
constantly.
lie had held his heart bound by its
own selllsliness bo long that he did not
realize how it waa ahpping away from
him till it was gone prist recall. W ith A
shock he wakened to the fact that Ire
loverl Bella Huntley with nil llie force of
boyish impulse, all the fervor of ifuittiro
years; loved her utterly, without thought
bf her wealth or pos tion, but for tlio
radiant beauty of her face, tlio rare, intellect ami winning sweetness of her perfect womanhood.
And wllh the lovo thore came little
fear. Ho wns wealthy, master of ono of
tho lln.st estates in New York, hand*
bo.no and of good birth. More than nil,
in those past summer days, he hail won
Leila's lovo. He wns sure ot that now,
though It had troubled him little at tho
time. Vanity whispered that She had
come to win him now.
So ho was not a despairing lover, who
on tho sumo balcony wliere ho had
■'rushed her young heart three years before now pleadod for Its lovo. Llcu-lcd,
too, as a man pleads for life. Not in tbo
measured words with whieh he hid
asked Bertha lo be his wife, but in burning, lle'ry eloquence taught by tbe lirst
sincere love or his life.
And Bulla listenod, turning upon her
tinner a circlet of diamonds that lushed
lire in tho cold moonlight. When lie
ceased to speak, words as io'uI nu drops
of hull on glass answered him:
'Throe years ago tlio lovo you ask for
was nil your own, won-by your filler
words, your lying oyos, The child wires •

sport never questioned your sincerity,
and put the treasure of her lore into

"Then you have played with mo I" ho
cried fiercely.
"I amused myself. Three years ago
you amused yourse'f."
With an oath 1'nul Uosslyn itrode
away in tho moonlight, and a hot tear
dropped upon Bella's diamonds;
"It is a poor revenge, nftcr ail," sho
Bald, softly. "Loon, I will forget llim
now In your lovo-yonr love, givon Ire-

whisky was lying beside him on tho

from tho clFccta of what he had drunk.
This morning Charlio informed tho

The Drill Shed was filled last night
with a very respectable and attentive
audience to witness the presentation of
colors to the Westminster division of
the Salvation Army. Commissioner
Coombs, of Toronto, delivered a very
interesting address pn tlie origin, principles and work of the army. It is
now about 22 years since the nrmy
was organized, and now its soldiers
maj be found in almost overy corner
of the globe. During the period of its
operations, the commissioner said, the
army had been instrumental in saving
00,000 drunkards. The flag was presented to Capt. Coffin and the two hallelujah lass .-a, accompanied by a very
impressive address. Staff Capt. Young,
of Winnipeg, was present and took
part in the exercises. Commissioner
Coombs and Capt. Young left by train
this afternoon for Winnipeg.
The Seven Clerk.1*.
To-morrow night Herring's opera
house will be packed to witness that
interesting drama "The Seven Clerks,"
as put on the boards by tho Westminster amateurs. A great many
tickets have been sold already, and it
looks as if the play will be much better patronized than those things
usually aie. Tho new drop curtain,
lately arrived from tho cast, representing n view of the Bay of Naples, will
be unfolded to the publio gaze for tho
first time to-morrow night. It is a
vory handsome piece of work and well
worth seeing. Tliu furco which follows
tlie drama is a very laughable affair,
and is guaranteed to bring a smile to
the face of the most solemn individual
in the audience. Tho whole entertainment is given in aid of the bell tower
fund, which the ladies of tho ohurch
are nobly endeavoring to raise to sufficient proportions to allow of the
tower being built.

"Moved by Stuart Brock. Esq., seconded by John Lovell, Esq., and resolved that this vestry do now record

Charles T. Higginson, who for many
years devotedly served tho churoh in
this parish in various official capacities
nnd strengthened its cause by an un*
wavering example of faithful, consistent churchinnuship, and thair hearty
wish that God's blessing may rest upon him aud his  family  iu their  new

A Dinner Pill.— Many persons suffer

hearty dinner. Tho food partaken of is
like a hall of load upon the Btomach,
and instead of boing a healthy nutriment, it becomes a poison to the system.
l)r. Parmoleo'e Vegetable Pills are wonderful correctives ol such trouble?. Thoy
correct acidity, opon the secretions and
convert the food partaken of into honlthy
nutriment. They are just tlio medicine
to take if troubled with * Indigestion or

A HORRIBLE CRIME,
New Youk, April, 3.—Miss Lizzie
Eastman, teaching school in one of
the farming districts of Clearfield
county, was fouud dead iu the school-
house last Tuesday night. Her tongue
had beon Cut from its roots and wus
found beside her dead body. Tho
school had been dismissed as usual at
4 o'clock and tlm pupils left their
teacher alone in the school house.
In the left hand of the deul woman
was found a load pencil, and on the
floor near her dead body was written the revolting particulars uf
her death. Two tramps entered the
school house after the pupils had been
dismissed, overpowered and as-aulted
her, afterwards severed hor tonguo
with a knife, and fled, leaving her for
dead. Sho recovered sufficiently to
write ou the school house floor, and
succeeding in giving the above particulars with a desoripiion of her assailants, when she grew too weak to
write moro, and died before sho was
found.
Don't Despair op Relief, if troubled
with Chronic Dyspepsia or Constipation.
These ailments, as woll as Biliousness,
Kidney infirmities, and feminine troubles,
nro eradicated by Northrop 4; Lyman's
Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure,
an alterative of long tried and dearly
proven efficacy. It is a fine blood depur-
ent as well as corrective, and contains no
ingredients which aro not of the highest
standard of purity.

Castoria is recommended by physicians
for children teething. It is a purely vegetable preparation, its ingredients are
published around each bottle. It is
pleasant to the taste and absolutely harmless. It relieves constipation, regulates
the bowels, quiets pain, cures diarrha-a
and wind colic, allays J'overishness, destroys worms, and prevents convulsions,
soothes the child and gives it refreshing
and natural sleep. Castoria is the child-
rens' panacea—tlio mothers' friend. 35
doses, 3d cents. divmliSOml
