last evening Hon, Mr. Dunsmuir
referred to Mr. Bole's evidence before the squatters' committee in 18-
85, where he had called 8. Greer a
"crank" in speaking of his claim to
land at English B^tjr., The report
of tbe select committee on 3, Greer's
claim, whioh wat being* discussed,
was signed by Mr. Boie, and reoom-
mended that he Bt given -a orown
grant. The president of the oouncil could not understand tbe hon.
member's inconsistency. Mr, Bole,
who has a very happy way of putting things, was equal to the occasion. He said he had not in 1885
known the circumstances of the case
its well as ho did now, and besides
waa working in the interests of another claimant Since then new revelations had convinced him of the
wrong decision he had before arrived at, and while he acknowledged
having called Mr. Greor a "crank,"
yet it only proved how open he waa
to honest conviction in admitting the
error he had made and soeking to
do what was right. The hon. gentleman's remarks convulsed the
house.—Colonist.

Ottawa, April 20.—Bishop Glut
appeared before the Schults committee to-day. The bishop, who has a
vast and almost undefined diocese
in that little-known region, is certainly the best witness, so far as
practical, wido and intimate knowledge of the lessor known parti of
Mackenzie river are concerned, that
has appeared before the committee.
Eioept in dress, he does not resemble the typical Roman Of tholic pre-
late. Instead of shaven cheeks, he
presents a flowing patriarchal beard,
this appendage, so unusual in one of
his profession, being worn booauso
of the severity of the climate of the
country, to the redemption of whioh
from savagery his missionary seal
has called him to devote his life.
Hia lordship uses English but sparingly. He was intimately acquainted with the river from ita source to
its mouth, as well as. with the lakes
on its east side and the extensive
water courses which come in from
tbe west. His lordship, in his examination, gave as hia opinion that

latter were used aa far north at
Great Slave Lake. He spoke in the
highest terms of the quality and site
of the fresh water fish of these northern waters. Fish attained to a very
groat site, as also the salmon and
trout, while the sea fish come up the
Mackenzie annually from the Polar
teas in immense numbers. There
were immense numbers of fish called

like the salmon, but its flavor mora

It was not, he thought, real salmon,

forests and mines of the region. He
stated that pine of a large growth,
of from two to three and a half feet

believed them to be very extensive,

' London, Apr. 29.—Affiiirs in tht
Balkan states continue to grow more
alarming, and eaoh new event shows
that the pro-Russian feeling it surely
gaining an ascendancy among the people of these states. Many leading
diplomatists do not hesitate to ny that
Prince Bismarck's unnecessary deference to the csar respecting the mar.
riage of Prinoe Alexander of Batten-
berg to the Princess Victoria greatly
strengthens Russia's position in the
Balkans, at it hat led a majority of the
people of Bulgaria, Roumanla and
Serviato believe that tht German
chancellor yielded to tbe oar's desires
through fear. There is now a strong
Jwlilical circle in Germany, which believes that Prince Bismarck made a
fatal mistake in overriding a personal
inclination of the Emperor Frederick's
daughter in deference to the wishes of
the Russian court. Tht cause cf peace,
it is believed in thit circle, would have
been immensely strengthened if it had
bean nude known at ones that,even at
Russian czars and grand dukes have a
peifeet right to choose their partners
for life among German prinotases, so
also a German kaiser's daughter must
ibe free to give her hand to a German
prince, and that the oar should have
been given to understand that the
days were put when he oould arrogate
to himself a decisive voice in German
councils.
DtnniAL POLITICS.
London, April 29. —. Ministers recently smiled at the request ot Sir Edward Watkin that • thoy thotld propound their polioy of government for
Ireland before the end of the session,
but they are now thoroughly alarmed
by the same demand being made by
Lord Randolph Churchill. Both Sir
Edward Watkin and Lord Randolph
Churchill undoubtedly expressed a
winning opinion in asserting that the
government oannot ttand long on coercion. Mr. Gladstone regards both Incidents as very significant, and feels
sare if ihe government does not reform
jtt policy that there will be a larger
movement of the dissentient liberals
in the direction of homo rub. Tht
Irish members sty with irristible logic
that the government hat no right to
demand a particular attitude from them
in advance of their measure. It la
only upon the production of the government's proposals that they oan be
asked to say whether they would be
accepted in a loyal spirit. Lord Randolph Churchill's speech continues to
be very much talked of and there is
exactly that kind and degree of murmuring by the liberal dissentients
againit the government which Mr.
Gladstone doubtless calculated that
Lord Randolph would raise. The dissentients say that unless tht government drops coercion and brings forward an Irish local government measure a way will be opened With some
urgency for ths reunion of the dissentients and liberals. Concerning this a
leading unionist said to-day, "If tht
government stands firm upon thtir
polioy of no reform for Ireland it mutt
lead to a speedy restoration of the liberal party as a whole to powor. The
Irish members cannot accept any compromise exoept from Hr. Gladstone.
They owe him him too much to listen
to hu rivals, no other man, not oven
Mr. Parnell, could reduce the Irish
terms on the home rule question. In
fact he is the only person who oould
dictate a oompromuo. Tht dissentients will not follow the faiVeritinent
in ita non puasunius and tho***1 will be
in fact from today a tendency to
conciliation which will baaocompluhed
if the government persist in carrying
out their present policy."

It it'understood that the-new
Mormon colony now being planted-
near' Lethbridge, in tho Canadian*
northwest, is composed of the Mormon sect whioh neither preaches
nor practices polygamy. This is the
community among whom the ex-
minister for Oomox is expected to
' take up his residence. These people repudiate the peculiar doctrine
of the'Salt Lake ohurch, and declare
that polygamy is contrary to aoript-
'• tare.- Th#e are, it is said, over 20,-
000 of  this sect, of whom about
, l,(j00 reside in Ontario. The head-
; quarters of the sect is in Iowa. The
. Lethbridge colony is increasing and
is reported to be composed chiefly of
r very excellent people. Most of them
are  in  comfortable circumstances,
a and they appear to be industrious
and law abiding. The principles of
this sect are not such as to bring
them into conflict with the laws
either of  Canada  or  the' United
' States, and we presume no attempt
will be made to interfere with them.
One of the most important meas-
' uret passed by the- provincial legis-
"   ! lature  during  the . session  which
■   closed on Saturday was the bill appropriating ?64,000 for the ereotion
i pt mnohinery for the thorough testing of our quarts mines.   Although
there  seems, to be no reasonable
ground for doubting that there are
in this province millions of tons of
ni is rock which.would yield a handsome
profit to any person working it,
■ « there it practically no quarts mining
-going on':in   the. province;   'The
doubts which exist respecting; the
best way of treating the ores, and:
• the,cost of getting the machinery on
to the ground, havo proved too serious a barrier to the development of
what is believed to be one of our
greatest touroet of wealth. Let it
once be demonstrated that this rook
 can be profitably worked, and there
i will be no; longer any laok of, «api-
too tal forthe development of our quartz
<   minet.   There are many owners of
  qnartt ledges who are quite unable
to stand the expense of erecting luch
'i;it4iclM»^i#s is neoeuary to deal
. with these ores; but if a mill wat
ii „ within reaoh, thoy would go .on at
onoe with mining operations, getting
out ore for the crusher.   We should
not wonder if the -establishment of
.. government, mills proves to be the
beginning of much greater activity
in the mining regions, especially on
the quartz Wges, which are so nu-
.. merout throughout the country.
Home rule is by no means, con-
1  fined to Ireland.   In England and
:,   Wales there is a widespread, feeling
that eome constitutional change is
necessary to the adjustment of ex
fating. grievances,  and there are
.   many-people clamoring for a speoies
.    of home rule.   Scotland hat long
*        been agitating for home rule.   The
... injustice of the land laws in Hcot-
; land it not leu than in Ireland, but
there it this difference between the
two countries: A large portion of
the Irish are poor, improvident, and
discontented, while the Scotch, as a
..rule,,are better/off, more thrifty,
and leu liable to fly off at a tangent
! Th* Scottish Home Rule Associa
tion is a society that hat been in ex-
:: itdeaur for sevoral yean, and the object of it it to secure for Scotland
suoh rights as justly belong to her.
We do not anticipate that the agitation for home rule in Scotland will
..  be eaodooted on the same plan as
.    that of the Irish agitators.   There
it a  wide difference between the
characters of the two people, and we
,have no expt»f*t«tion of seoing Scotch-
,*MR.(eiort»OT(IyMpito andr aunts
■ ination.   But these agitations are
.  undoubtedly bated on  real griev-
enoei. In the old country the
rights of individuals and the good of
tht nation have to be sacrificed too
often for tht pleasure anil gratification of the privileged olaatea—the
aristocracy. The beat of the lnnds
I, are often diverted from legitimate
,, m Wi held u pleasure grounds for
the rich. The national resources
are thut curtailed, and in some
caret willing handt find no employ-
mtat aad art forced to took a live-
.     Uheod in foreign Itndi.   Wo beliove
... i. tha tint will oome when a great
change will be brought about in the
land tenure of Gnat Britain, and
that a system of government somewhat after that now prevailing in
Otaada and the United States will
take tho place of the unequal ays-

"If there's ono ''thine more to be despised than another/' said Miranda
Mint, bringing down her anioothlDg iron
wilh a decided thump on the snowy
linen before her, "it's a man who courts
one half his natural life without bringing
matters to a closo."
"Very true," replied her sister, glancing up from her sewing, "and it's my
opinion that Hiss Weeks is a hankering
alter yon quite long enough. I'd Imvo
iHren liim his walking papers long ago, if
Iwosybu.''
"No you wouldn't," replied Miranda,
with a toss of ber flnxcn head. "I ain't
wasted ten years for nothing, and I mean
to bring him to the point or my name
ain't Mlrandy Flint."
"Tims you did," said rriscilla, "if yon

sisters are not always the best of
friends. One would suppose by our
narrative that the Misses Flint were
antagonistic. Far from it | they only
disagrees on one point, or, rather, one
individual — Silas Weeks, Miranda's
"young man," Frlscilla bad nd pretensions whatever to good looks, while
her sister was quite an acknowledge
belle. Her hair was flaxen, eyes blue,
cheeks as rosy as apples reminding one
of a very bright chromo, only dispelling
the illusion by laughing occasionally and
displaying s faultless set of teeth.
Many a country twain sighed for a
glance ot encouragement, aighing, alas I
in vain, however, as Miranda's heart and
hand were already spoken for.
Silas Weeks was the lucky suitor.
Once be had obtained tho girl's promise
to become his wife, ho appeared in no
hurry at all to settle down to married
lifo, preferring to "koop company," as
Miranda expressed it, "ono half bis
natural life.''
To be suro he meant to marry tbo girl
• in his own good tiitio. neVer dreaming'
that by his conduct he was submitting
her to the idle gossip ol tho village. Ho
wis a saving fellow, rather inclined to bo
stingy. It was less expensive to keep
one than two, or perhaps more; lor Silas
Weeks wasa far-seeing fellow.
The spring drifted into summer, the
bright autumn came, the snows of nranv
winters passed. Miranda saw scores df
her companions married and settled,
while ehe remained Miss Hint. Not
until she realized tbat the face her mirror
reflected was not quite as fair oa it.used
i to be, that the blue eyes were growing
dimmer, the roses fading from her chocks,
was she determined to bring her lover to
the point. ■■,'.-
"I'm just glad," said rriscilla, dropping
down into the first seat she came to,
"that Mlrandy'« coniiiiitto her senses;
but I'm afraid thatisho'll nelei4be"married. I'm Borry'I mentioned ber age, it

After which burst of feelings she went
back to her sewing, singing snatches of
an old love sont*.

bent over it.
"111 just tell him how Kphraim Brown

she smiled proudly nt the thought of
her lover's jealousy.
. There is nothing that will nuke a
.woman more independent of her old
' Bnitor than ths advances of a new ons.
Mover did Mias Flint look more bewitching tban on that soft rftltSjmt'i staling,
when, dressed in a neat muslin, set off
with bright ribbons, Bhe waited for her
lover.
He came down the long country road,
whistling s merry tune.
"Gracious, Mirandy!" hs exclaimed,
drawing up in front of the gate, "you do

Miranda looked very dignified, quits

"Oh, don't do that, Silas; you might
be sorry for it"
He spent that evening as he had spent
rmany others In the trim little sitting-
room, listening to Miranda playing the
organ. They missed Priicilla'a sweet
soprano to join them in singing. She was
having s good cry to think of Miranda's
"dressing up to isceive that good-tor-
nothingfellow."
"Golng-tothsplcnio?" asked Silas of
his lady love.
"I think so," said Miranda, playing
nervously with the roses at her bodice.

into bis pockets, he exclaimed,—

into tho llltle woman's faco.
Two weeks rolled by. It was a sultry
(lay in July as Silas Weeks came strolling
ovor tlie diisty country road, a great straw
hat shading his bronzed face, on which
there was a pleased and gratified expression. He had sold a yoke of oxen,
thereby: realizing a goo Ily sum. His
thou ;bts turned to Mlrandy. '
"i'll liny her somethiu' stunnln'," he
sail, hurl-aloud. "You've got to keep
thess'Wouion folks in good humor"
An approaching vehiclo interrupted
his nieilli..lions. Thinking it a neighbor
to whotn lio might impart his good
fortune, lie glanced up, when lo! was he
dreaming? Keforii him,1 fully equipped
for a long journey, he saw his' ladylove.
Yes, 'twas*Mirahily, sure enough, with a
determined look' upon her lace, while
piled up liehiir I her oh the wagon wero
nil. her worldly possessions, including
household elfucti und a huge green' parrot.
Why, Mirandy!" gasped ths dum-
founded lover.   "Where be you go|n' ?"
"noing!"   And Mirandall'lint's eyes
flashed with indignation.   "Silos Weeks,
Wm going lo leave these parts, You and
-me's been keepin' company long enough.
If you don't 'want me, there's someone
else as does, - I'm in a hurry," she continued, 'to catch thS train. If you'll
allow mc, Mr. Weeks, I'll begettin on."
"But, Mirandy," ho exclaimed, catching hold of the horse's bridle, "don't do
anything rash! Listen," ho continued.
"What would you have me do? Just you
mention it, and 'twill bo done in the
twinkling of an eyo."
"Whnt would I havo you do ?" said
Miss Flint,' grasping tighter the reins.
".lust go to tho parson's with me, and get
hitohed." .    •
He looked dumfounded as he replied,—
"Sot in these clothes, Mirandy I You'll
let mo go homo nnd get these togs oil',
won't you? Wo'll go this evening,
Bar tin!"
"So you don't I" said Miranda. "It
wonld toko you another ten years to
make up your mind what colored trousers
you'd wear."
One look Into hor face convinced bim
that, womanlike,
"When she will ill. will,
Vou may depond.oD't,
' And when the won't slro won't,
Sothore'sauendWtf.T'
Away down deep in his heart this
simple country fellow loved the girl, and
-the thought of losing her well nigh drove
him mad. He hail calculated upon
marrying after harvest time, but Miranda
was determined to hurry matters up, and
sitting-with a "take me or leave mu" expression upon her fair face, he knew that
nothing would appease her anger but to
go at once to tho parson's.
Helping the indignant girl from her
elevated position, and tying the horse to
a tree by the waysido, they went directly
to the parsonage.
Now the clergyman was n slender,
meek little fellow, a man hot likely.to be
attacked with apoplexy; yet he told the
deacon (confidentially, of rourse) that
when he saw Silus and Miranda coming to be married, he thought he was going to have on attack of that dreadful
disease.
It took hut a few moments to make
them man and wife, and ths groom insisted upon giving the parson half tbo
amount he had rocoivod- for tbo oxen as
a wedding fee.
The newly wedded couple drove home,
taking rriscilla completely by surprise as
Silas remurkt-d, winking knowingly'the
,whilo,-T'
"Come now, sister, ■ snd shako hands
with Mil' Weeks, won't you ?"
How the busy tongues of thovlllago
gossips wagged!
"Well, Bald one, "I never thought that
Silos Weeks would marry Mirandy
Flint I"
They are happy in their little horns, he
content with the idsa that he captured
Miranda before she went away.
"Hnd I stayed another half hour.to
close that bargain," he wonld say, 'I'd a
lost her aura's my name's Silas Wedl*!"
The clever little woman laughs to think
that ahe hadn't the remotest idea of leaving the village. ',.'

Now that gardens have been put 'into shape, would it not be well for our
city father! to pau a by-law prohibiting owners of cattle from allowing thorn
to run at will through tho streets) It
may bo a very amusing sight .to see
aome of our moat solemn and dignified
citizens out in their night gowns running hurdle races with tramp cows,
and making the poaceful night hideous
with execrations, but it is an unnecessary hardship and Bhould bo prevented
if possible. It will be olnolutely no-
ccesory for the council-to tako somo
action io this matter as tho cattle are
becoming a-"greater nuisance every
week.
Target Practice.      ..    .
, Tlie target practice on Saturday afternoon, at Brownsville, was held under rather disagreeable circumstances,
The rain commenced juat as the ferry
left the wharf and continued steadily
until the shooting was over. Tho
range waa in a terrible condition, being
very boggy over ita entire length and
with water in many places. Notwithstanding theie drawback! the memben
of the association carried the practice
through to a finish regardless of everything, and, although the scores made
were not good, yet under tho many
disadvantaged the shooting wai very
creditable. The following are the
acorea:

ridge Hopped and talked in a loud
voico with another man; I uked him
to stop making a noise or leave tha
meeting. He said he eamo with good
intentions and would keep quiet. I
went back to the platform and he commenced talking again, louder than
evor, ao I went down again and told,
Lothridge to leave; he would have left
but for MoKay, who pulled him on
tothoaeat." . . nf
Hi| Honor—Have you any quel-,
tion to ask, Lothbridgo 1
L.—No, I beliovo tho lady ie perfectly correct.
.,   His Honor—That'a fight; upon confession ia good for the aoul.
L.—You bet

out, but McKay pulled him back
to hla Beat Lethbridge disturbed the
meeting. Constable Smith came and
took him away-"
Hia Honor, to Lethbridge—Do you
