Injuring Victoria.
There were two liiils linforo tlie
provincial legislature at its Inst session applying for railway ilinrtcrs
to connect tliis city with Washington Territory. Both of those hills
wore thrown out, uml one of them
was lost only liy the casting voto of
the speaker, it is a groat pity
that the two companies applying
for these charters (lit! not coalesce
ami unite upon one scheme. Hut
it is a greater pity and misfortune
thnt none of tho applications for
charters were granted. To any
person who considers the circumstances it must appear plain enough
* that the construction of u railway
from this city across the southern
boundary would materially aid in
developing that part of the country
If would stimulate trade and immigration to an extent which, perhaps,
few people have dreamed of, and it
would   open   directly   lo the best
■ markets a rich tract of country now
vory difficult of access. Our readers will be surprised to learn that
the arguments used against this
road by some members of the house
were that it would hurt Victoria
Such an argument and such a statement is both puerile aud imperii
nent. Can it be possiblo that no
mainland scheme that might take
trade away from Victoria is to be
entertained by the house! The
people of Victoria who foster such
a selfish notion may find out some
day to their sorrow that it is pos.
sible to turn the tables upon them.
This part of the province has been
taxed during its whole existence to
benefit Victoria, and the capital had
better take care how it treats the
projects of the mainland. The
southern railway was not projected
for the purpose of injuring Victoria:
its object was to benefit the whole
province, and especially this city
and district; and we are sorry that
auy person pretending to represent
mainland interests should have opposed it. A similar bill passed the
house last year, but, was disallowed
at. Ottawa. It is understood tlint
if tlie last bill had been passed it
would have received the nsseut of
the federal authorities. The notion
of the house is not creditable.

taken a most sensible view of the
situation. They have cuyie to the
conclusion that to exchange Uritish
authority ..for Itussian rule would
be to give themselves up to tlio
religion of Russia us well. This
they are not williugto do. Great
Britain has not disturbed their
religious rites and practices, except
in so far as they, were openly op-
rd to the moral senso of the
itish people. But Russia would
probably insist that tho Ureek
church must follow the Itussian
nrmy. It is stated that the people
of India arc not only prepared to
resist Russian invasion, but are
anxious to marcli to the relief of
Afghanistan. In India there is a
British army of nearly 02,000 men,
and a native army of 192,000.
Besides, the native princes maintain an army of over 300,000 and
5,262 heavy guns. Thero are,
therefore, over half a million of
trained . soldiers in India prepared
to moot the Russian advance. Looking at all the circumstances we do
not really believe that Russia will
■go into n war with Britain ■ and we
earnestly hope she will not. „,

Is It War?
The mi' is full of rumors, and
no one am tell how soon war may
lie declared between Russia and
Great Britain. The present strained
relations between the two countries,
however, may not lead to hostilities
after all. It is quite evident that
Britain means business, nnd if
Russia continues to advance in
Afghanistan, behind the Afghan
forces she will find British bayonets.
The gigantic preparations going on
everywhere show that Britain will
defend her Asiatic dependencies nt
any cost. It ia not likely that
Germany will either actively or
passively aid the Russians. The
German emperor has been engaged
in an effort to preserve peace; and
if hostilities cannot be avoided, the
interests of Germany lie with Brit*
nin rather thau with Russia. In
the late visit of Herbert Bismarck
to London it is supposed there was
moro than a mere adjustment of
the German African colonies. The
willingness with which Britain
made concessions in that direction
can only he explained upon the
theory that she secured at the same
time a pledge of German support or
neutrality in case of a conflict with
Russia. Ilritaiii has the energetic
assistance of Italy and the good
will of Germany. She will also
Imve whatever aid Turkey may be
able to give, and. it is not at all
likely the French can be made to
embarrass her in a struggle against
the common enemy of old. Witli
these arrangements, Britain can
afford to face a Russian army iu
Afghanistan, and the result need
aot be doubtful. Tho Afghans
themselves seem honestly opposed
to Russian aggression, and tliis wi1
be of great advantage to British
interests, But if it be true,
stated in our telegrams, that the
native tribes of India are themselves
almost unanimously declaring for
Britain as against Russia, the situation becomes much more hopeful.
India ii undoubtedly the object of
Ruwia's avarice; and it was feared
that the discontented trilies, who
hrtve never gracefully submitted to
British rule, might welcome the
Russian arms us a means by which
they would be able to throw off the
British yoke. If these fears had
been walked, it would add greatly
to Britain's embarrassment. But
ihe people o* India aeem to havo
There seems to he no appreciable
change for the better in the postal
arrangements   on   the   mainland.
Since tlie mails for offices on the
south sido of the river have been
carried by the steamers, they aro
delivered moro promptly; but the
ever-changing system is so irregular
that   people   at these settlements
really   cannot   havo   any   definite
knowledge respecting the times of
the departure of   mails,     At the
public meeting lately held at Langley it was stated that it took nine
days for a letter to go from Langley
to this city and art answer to return!
We have heard  other statements
respecting tho inefficiency of  the
service which aro not less remarkable.     Even on the nortii side of
the river the delays-and disappointments of the servico are beyond all
reason.     Business men in thfs city j
have told us that it is impossible to
conduct any  transaction with persons up the railway line without
meeting with disappointments whioh
endanger   all    business   relations.
Ordors sent from up river arc so
long in  reaching this city, or the
goods   are   so long reaching their
destination, that both the business
man and his customer become ex-
remely   disgusted.      Some of our
readers may  wonder bow such delays can  take place where the post
offices are on  the line of railway.
The explanation, is simple enough.
Since tho railway began running a
year ago we doubt if a dozen trains
have ever arrived at their destination on time.    They are from an
hour to three or four days late.    It
is utterly impossible for any person
to know, with any kind of certainty,
when   a train may reach a postoliice.     At the stations generally
there is no station master, and no
person with whom  the mail bags
may be left if the carrier or postmaster does nut happen to bo there
when the train passes.    It frequently happens, therefore, that the mail
carrier waits for the trains until he
is  tired  and goes away in disgust.
Thon  when the train "comes along
there is no mail to be received, and
no person to take the bag for delivery and  tho mail is carried on to
Savona .or Port Moody as the ease
may. lie.     But why do not carriers
always remain at lhe station until
the   mails   have beeu exchanged'?
That cannot he expected.    The carriers are not paid more than enough
to cover an ordinary service.    Can
it be expected that they will hang
round a station without food aud
shelter for five or six hours, or for
three  days and nights, until  the
train comes along ?     It is not reasonable to look for self-denial like
this in the civil■■■serrice. ■   We ure
told that it is very common to miss
the mails in this way, and we may
expect to keep on missing them so
long as thoy nre carried on a railway thnt never runs on time.    So
far as this city is concerned, there
never was a more stupid mail arrangement    This Is the terminus
of the mainland mail service, and
yet the service is so arranged that
tho outgoing mail invariable leaves
before the incoming mail has been
received!   It is therefore impossible
to answer letters by return mail, otto   fill   orders   with any kind of
promptness, even if the mails happen to be fully up to time.   It is
an almost   universal opinion  that
tho whole river mail service would
be very much more satisfactory if
it was performed by the steamers,
ns it used to lie, twice a week.
That   arrangement   should   never
have beon disturlied until the rail-

paragraph; "A gentleman from New

fever is alarmingly prevalent iu that
eity. Tho public schools and the convent school have closed in consequence
of tho non-attendance of children.
No intimation of this has yet been
given by the uowspnpors published

of tho schools was given simply because at that time thoy wero not closed,
and tlie Standards informant must

The' New Directoiiy.— The Directory of British Columbia just published

contains 322 pages, including advertisements. A careful examination nf
the book will bring to light several
imperfections, but it is certaiuly much
moro complote thnn any work of the
kind over boforo issued in thii** provinco. The directory contains about
3,000 nameB, which is nearly 1,000
more than were contained iu the directory of 18B2-83. In addition to tho
list of names, thero are descriptive
articles relating to, the variouaxitiosr
municipalities and districts throughout the country, and a general article
on British Columbia from the pen of
Mr. Gilbert Malcolm Sproat. There
nro also numerous statistics, and tables
of distances, postage Vatoa, telegraph
rates, lists of the various societies and
organizations. The book is very creditable to its publisher. Thu prico is
81.60 por copy.

County Court.
Court was opened on Wednesday,
Mr. Justine McCreight presiding. The
following were the defended cases;

that the guarantee was limited. Judgment for plf. Mr. McColl (Corbould &

817(1. . Mr. McColl (Corbould & McColl) for plf.; Mr. Bolo for dft.
Grant vs. Webster & MuGreoor.
—This was an action brought by D.
B. Grant, of Port Moody, against J.
A. Webster and D. McGregor, for
supplies furnished to Webster's hotol
at the end of the road, amounting to
$118. The hotol, as our readers know,
was conducted by a man named Watkis, who became insum* last year and
died. McGregor was staying at tho
houso, uud whon Watkis became incapable uf managing it, Webster
engaged him to take charge of the
place for 850 a month. During his
management tho supplies for which
suit was entered woro purchnsod from
Grant. Tbo defonso was that McGregor was acting for Watkis, and not
for Wobster, and that Grant muat
luok to Watkis or McGregor for his
pity. Tho case took nearly all day,
boforo a special jury, and a verdict
for tho plaiutilf was rendered against
Webster for tho full amount. Mr.
McColl (Corbould & McColl) for Grant
Mr. Bolo for Webster.

A very successful entertainment was
given iu tha school house nt Fort
Langley, on tho 27th ult., for the
benefit of the public wharf, whicli is
to be built at tho old steamboat landing. Tho school room was tastefully
decorated with mottoes and evergreens,
and presented a cheerful and pleasing
appearance. Tho building was filled
to its utmost capacity, for Langley hns
uow a reputation for socials thnt euu-
not bu surpassed by any community in
British Columbia. The programme,
as usual, was vory interesting and attractive, consisting of able addresses,
choico rendings, humorous recitations,
dramatic dinlogues, comio and sentimental songs, interspersed with instrumental music rendered in a pleasing
manner by Miss C. D. Sinclair und
Mr. Apnaut. Mrs. Soocombo was
warmly received upon making her appearance, and sang "Aileen Allium"
"Killnrnoy" aud other choice selections. This lady contributed materially to the succoss of tho ovening, for I
am sure, to those who have suffered
musical famine or exile, hor singing
would charm nnd refresh as dew upon
tho Howers. Thon again, how delightful it wns to listen to tho hnrmouies

Mr. Stanley Towle assisted by his relatives, viz., Miss Katio Taylor, Miss
Mary Taylor, Miss Ida Towle and
Messrs, Wilkio and Sinclair; but the
humorous dialogue entitled "How she

nnd Mr. O. Wilkie, tickled the funny

Port Moody Wharf.
In the House of Commons on tho
2ud hi!*',, Mr. Blake moved for tho
reports, etc., in connection with the
construction of tho Canadian Pacific
railway wharf and freight shed at Port
Moody, British Columbia; also, for
the pupers relating to the bridge at
Spuzzum, British Columbia. Ho read
a letter from a correspondent stating
that the wharf referred to had been
built nt a cost of $09,000 after a plan
prepared nt headquarters. It was on
timber piles, and these piles had been
eaten through by se.i worms, which
wero very destructive ou the British
Columbia coast, ns could hnve been
easily learned liad any inquiry whatever been made. Had the timber for
the piles been cut at the proper time
of the yeur, aud had tho piles been
driven with the bark on, they would
have resisted the sea worms for four
or fivo years. But they had beon cut
at the wrong season and the bnrk was
carefully tnkon off. - It was completed
in 1882, and the very nuxt yonr it was
in an unsafe condition. Vet, so far,
no steps had beon taken to repair it,
although ten ships with rails wore soon
to arrive. , He read from the report of
tho Chief Engineer, embodied in tho
Minister of Railways report, that the
two front rows of piles would hnvo to
be replaced by iron piles. Respecting
tho bridge nt Spuzzum, he rend from
the samo letter to show that extensive
repairs had been already made on some
bridges, and one of them was actually
rebuilt three tunes, If tho work was
being carried on in this way there
would be an enormous bill to pay for
extras before the work would be accepted by the Canadian Pacific.
Mr. Pope Baid it was truo that one
bridge wns rebuilt three times, but
this was the only ono. He did not
know there wns nny correspondence
respecting the wharf. He had a memorandum from the engineer, whioh he
would givo in place of tho return if
tho honorablo gentleman would accept
it. Hu read from the memorandum
thnt-tho wharf wns a temporary one in
tho first place. It had served its purpose, aud its destruction was nut regarded as a loss. The first three rows
of piles would have to bo replaced
with iron ones at a cost of ono hundred thousand dollars,
Mr. Blake called attention to the
fact that whilo tho roport spoko of the
first two rows as needing to be replaced, this memorandum said three
rows, showing how rapidly tho work
of destruction was going on.
Worms derange the whole system.

The Reformation,
Tho following is a report of tho lecture on the "Reformation in the 10th
and 10th centuries" delivered in this
city last Sunday afternoon by Rev.
G. B. Allen. The lecturer said: In
tlie last half of the 19th century many
innovations have beon introduced.into
tho Anglican church which are.opposed
to tlie principles of Protestantism as
practised and enunciated during the
previous two hundred yoars. The innovations aro altar and super-altar;
brazen cross with candle or candles on
either side of it; incense; priest and
peoplo turning toward tho altar and
bowing with profound adoratioji; signing themselves with tho sigu of the
cross; high and low celebrations; high
and low masses; prayers for the dead;
prostrations boforo tho cross; calling
tho holy communion the sacrifice of
Christ; rent presence; the confessional.
He related several incidents'which
took placo in the U. S., and then remarked: "Wo need not goto theU.
S. to see innovations in Protestant
churches. Last fnll I went into an
Anglican church at Chilliwhack. I
saw on the super-altar six caudles with
.a cross iu tno centre; at Esquimalt
thero nre candles at oue'end of tho
church aud a horse shoo at the other;
hi Holy Trinity, this city, and in the
chapel at Sapperton, I hnve seon
cnndlcs, I hear strange- utterances
from a protest au t pulpit.' The speaker read editorials and other articles in
tho Churchman's Gazette, published in
this city, on "Praying for tho dead";
"Blessed Virgin Mary ; "Celebration
of the Holy Eucharist"; "Forgiveness
of Sins," He also read extracts from
a small book given a person recently
confirmed iu this oity as a guide to
those who desire to go to the protest-.
ant confeasionnl, nnd from a pamphlet
on symbolism by Rev. T. H. Gilbert,
and from "Trinity Church Catechism."
Hu thon said: "I have presented sufficient evidence tu convince any candid
mind that sumo of the clergymen iu
tho Anglican church do not teach tho
principles of Protestantism. I can
sincerely suy thnt I feel very sad at
heart, when I think that old, experienced, learned, cultured and formerly
evangelical ministers are now introducing ritualistic innovations nnd
preaching tho puerile opinions of the
ecclesiastical writers in the dark nges
of Church history. I feel still sadder
when 1 behold the apathy and indifference on the part of many of tho laity
to the pernicious teachings and idolatrous acts of the clergy. So lusidu-
ous has been the introduction of tho
innovations, both in teaching and iu
worship, that ouo generation has buen
educated nud trained in tho new system before tho other generation was
aware thnt they hnd boon led awny
from tho 'old paths' nnd tho 'faith
onco deliverod to tho saints.' Who
would have thought several yenrs ago
thnt a lnrge proportion of the congregation of tho Anglican church iu Now
Westminstor would hnve boon compelled to sign n protest' ag'iiust thu
burning of caudles on tho 'altar' and
other ritunlistic practices of the pnstor,
in order to snve themselves nnd their
children from unscripturnl nud nliti-
protestnnt influence! I rejoice thnt so
many of the present members of Holy
Trinity have beon aroused to sign a
protest against tho innovations and
heretical teachings of tho rector. Hut
remove tho caudles, crosses nnd confessional and there would still bo left
the causo of. the errors in doctrino nnd
hi worship. All the germs of mediiu-
valism must be removed from the
prayer book." Tho speaker held
in his hands a pamphlet entitled, "Are
there Romanizing Germs iu the Prayer
Book ?" written by a clergyman iu tho
Protestant Episcopal Church of the
V. S., and which ho said had been tho
means of convincing many tn thu old
church thnt tho only remedy to pro-
vont tho incroaso of ritualism was the
revision of the prayer book. Thero
wns, in England, a largo and intlnou;
tinl society, the object of which is tho
revision of the prayer book. Tho Episcopal Church of Ireland hnd revised
the English Church service book.    He
spoke of tho Reformation in Mexico,
iu Italy, nnd of tho Reformed Catholic
Church in New York city, and that
none V them could use the present
prayer book of tho Anglican church.
lie stated the reason why the prayer
book should be revised. He showed
that absolution was a priestly act. He
objected to expressions iu the baptismal servico for children, in the catechism, rubric for tho burial of the
dead, and othor offices. He spoko of
tho several revisions of the prayer
book, when and why made—that the
ono under Charles II was not as protestant ns tho second prayer book of
Edwnrd VI. The lecturer snid: "I
do not expect that all who nre opposed
to the "innovations of wliich I hove
spoken will fool it thoir duty to leave
the old church. I know you cannot
•leave it without a severe struggle. I
sneak from experience. It was a so-
vere trial; no language can express it;
.for mo to leave tho associations of
nearly thirty years and thoso to whom
I was so sincerely attached as friend
and pastor. I can appreciate your
love for tho old church, But if you
cannot leave it, you ought not to be
indifferent whethor truth or error be
taught by its clergy. As ProtcBtant
churchmen, you ought nut to countenance mcdiiovalism in your churches.
Now is the time to act. O, will you,
can yon romain asleep when the enemy
has already invaded your church?
Concert of action is needed in this
diocese. Ono of two things you ought
to demand, either tho removal of the
innovations and the horeticnt tenohings,
or tho resignation of the Bishop who
is the real cnuse of all the anti-protest*
nut doctrines nnd practices. I know
that the mind and heart of tho laity
nro opposed to ritualism. I have been
in several parishes and I have not met
a single layman that has expressed
any sympathy with the BiBhop of thie
diocese-in his ritualism. While most
of them are not ready to oome into
tho Reformed Episcopal church, nearly
nil are ready to sign a protest against
the action of the Bishop in sending
them ritualistic clergymen. In your
efforts to retain true protestantism in
the English church, you will hnve the
sympathy of nll ProteBtants. Your
nation's existence depends on the preservation of the principles of true
protestantism in the hearts and lives
of the English people. Remember
that eternal vigilance is the price of
religions as well as civil liberty." In
conclusion the lecturer said: "lean-
not refrain from stating that I have
been received by the laity of Now
Westminster diocese with warm and
cordial expressions of friendship and
Christian sympathy. I havo had nothing in my heart but a sincere desire
to nssist them in resisting the enemy
of truth thnt has assailed tho grand
old Protestant Church of England.
Most of them have understood my
position and appreciated my efforts to
help thom in saving the church of the
martyrs from being captured by the
enemy of tho old Protestant Faith.
I must' also express my gratitude to
the olergy and laity of the other
protestant churches for the many favors extended to mo and the many expressions of Christian fellowship. I
shall take away with mc many plea-
Bant remembrances of my sojourn in
your city. In tho language uf the
apostle Paul, "My love be with you
all in Christ Jesus.   Amen."

" London, March 10.—In the lords this
afternoou Earl Granville, in answering a
question respecting the reported hauling
down of the British flag by the Germans,
said, iu the face of BismatVs assurance
of Germany's friendship for England ho
did not believe the hauling down of the
British colors and the hoisting of tho
German ling, as reported, were intended
aa an insult to England; hut was probably a uiiBiindiratanding on tho part of
the German commander, who might believo tlmt Victoria wan included in the
recent English cession to Germany of a
certain slice of territory in tlio Catueroona
ou the representation of Count Herbert
Bismarck that it was necessary to Germany iu order to make the Gorman colony in the Camcroons more compact. In
the House of Commons this afternoon,
(Hailstone, speaking on the same subject,
said if the report was true complications
were not likely to arise as the matter
would be amicably adjusted by the governments concerned.
St. PKTKiisM'iui, March 10. - Tlio
Novoe Viemya expresses the opinion that
the dispute on the Afghau question arises
from tho erroneous impressi'm of England
as tb the truo position of Russia iu Central Asia. Kni-land now recognlr.es her
mistake and wishes a moduli viivndi to
avoid occupying Herat. Russia will lie
compelled to Interfere for sake of prestige. Russia will not surrender a hair's
Invadth of her present possessions, nor
will shu abate her present demands.
Other Russian papers have similar comments.
London, March 10.—A persian paper
says: At a cabinet council in Cabul, the
Ameer nml sovoral (tcnerals present, it
wns decided to ask the English government to treat with Russia for tlie restoration of SuM-Khatum and I'cnjdeh,
but uot to make Russian occupation a
cawmt MU, the placo not being of strategic importance. Znllikar Pass, however, it was decided must be recovered
by force of arms, if necessary. Another
Persian paper says that several Herat
nobles arrived at Sarakho to present a
petition to Russia to annex Herat.
Sr. PKTKttsmM-d, March 10. — Vied-
tnosli snys: '■While Abdurrahman isnn
independent ruler, Kngland is little
justitivd iu remonstrating with Russia on
its movements against Gen. Lumsden, as
our right to occupy Afghanistan is equal
to that of England, so long as the meeting of Rami! is pending.
London, March, 10.—Count Vou Mum
ster, Gorman ambassador to England,
has communicated to Earl Granville a
dispatch from Bismarck expressing satisfaction with Granville's statements in
parliament.
London, March 10.— Sir Peter Lums-
deu telegraphs via Meshed: "Afghau
scouts roport that a small detatchment of
Russians advanced to Niholsheri, furthest
southwest point ou Heri. Uud claimed

London, March 10.—In a debate in
the commons this evening ou the redistribution of seats bill, Prof. Bryce (liberal) offered an amendment in favor of
disfranchising universities. The Parnellites raised a question regarding the
Dublin University, contending it was inadequate to tlie requirements of the
Roman Catholic population of Ireland
and therefore not entitled to representation in parliament, The amendment was
reacted 200 to 79.
London, March 10.—The Times states
the Russians have advanced further into
Afghan territory and a collision is imminent. The Afghans are preparing to
withstand attack and, the British government have ordered Gen. Sir Peter
Lumsden to organize a system of defense.
The Ameer of Afghanistan has requested
England to fortify Herat so it can be
defended by Afghan troops. The native
press of India, with scarcely an execution, express loyalty toward England,
and confidence in the wisdom and firmness'of Lord Dufferin, British Viceroy of
India. There are many expressions of
anger and bitter hostility against Russia,
and the Brahmins and Moslems vie in
expressions of contempt for the new religion which they say Russia would attempt to force on India.
London, March 10.—The German papers admit Germany is somewhat to
blame iu the recent controversy with
England inasmuch as Bismarck's official
dispatch of Sth May last was evidently
not delivered to Granville.
London, March 10.—The Timet in an
editorial says: "We believe the main
body of Gen. Lumsden'a troops have occupied Robat pass. It is hoped that
Gen. Lumsden s measures will prevent
tho capture of the key to India by n
coup ae main. If Russia is bent upon
war, she has many vulnerable points.
If she forces England to hostilities she
cannot imagine the struggle will be confined to the romote regions of Asia.
Brussels, March 11.—The Independence Beige announces in a dispatch from
Rome that Italy has undertaken the relief of Kassala. The correspondent says
plans for the necessary campaign have

Berlin, March IL —The result of
Count Herbert Bismarck's special mission to England, relative to German interests in West Africa, is reported as
follows: England cedes to Germany the
whole of the Camcroons country, with
the exception of the mission town of
Viotoria, where Germans are alleged to
have hauled down the British flag. England further agrees not to interfere witli
any action Germany may take in the
entire country from the south bank of
the Rio del Rey, a small river emptying
into the Bight of Beafray, some distance
north of the equator. Germany, on the
other hand, recognizes the supremacy of
England over the country lying between
the north bank of the Rio del Rey and
Lagos. Tliis covers tlie basin of the
lower Niger.
Dublin, March 11.—Parnell haa issued

of Ireland to observe respectful neutrality regarding the approaching visit of
the Prince of Wales.
London, Marcli 11.—Financial circles
are excited over the official reports received this afternoon confirming the report published in the Timet, to the effect
that the Russian troops havo advanced
further Into Afghan territory. The Russian government admits that such a
movement has taken place, but asserts
it was only intended for the purpose of
Becking a more suitable position in cose
of war with Afghanistan. It is generally believed that both the Afghans and
Russians are hurrying forward, and a
collision is imminent. British consols
have fallen 11-18 of one percent, and
Russian securities 20 per cent, in consequence of the above news.

nothing about Kassala having fallen.
London, Maroh 12.—The cabinet met
at noon, an unusually early hour. It at
once attracted attention, The reports
quickly spread that a crisis waa being
considered. The interest in the meeting
soon became intense. This was warranted by several incidents, which preceded
and attended the council. Immediately
before the conference, Col. Maude,
Equery in cliief to the Queen, called upon Gladstone nad had a long interview.
It was reported they had decided to
address a series of representations to tke
Russian govermucut, that if through

conllict results with the Ameer's troops,
Russia must accept the consequence, as
England is bound to guard the Afghan

London, March 12.—In the Commons
this afternoon, Gladstone said that England's relation with Russia, in conse*
quence of the hitter's reported encroachments ou the Afghau territory had not
been improved in the past several days.
Fit/. Maurice, under foreign secretary,
statnl that the Russians had not occupied Robat Pass. In response to continued queries, tho under secretary said
it was not desirable on the part of the
government to make public any further
information. Northcoto asked whether
or not the government could say anything
with regard to the Russian advance in
Afghanistan. Northcoto, in propounding the queation, took advantage of the
occasion to refute the widespread impression tbat the government take un-
unusual steps to communicate with the
opposition leaders upon Afghan occurrences. Gladstone replied, and said he
wns unable to impart anything substantially to improve the information already
possessed by the house. * He oould only
assure tho house that the Afghan question had the constant and unfailing attrition of the government.

Luikbtad, San Salvador, March 12.'—
President Barries, of Guatemala, declared
Central America should constitute one
republic, and that he would assume command of nll the military forces of the various states. This declaration is acceptable to Honduras, but rejected by San
Salvador and Nicaragua. The Costa
Rica forces of Guatemala began a march
against San Salvador. President Zeald-
war telegraphed an account of the situation to General Diag, President of Mexico, and asked him to use his influence to
prevent bloodshed. Iu answer Diag sent
the following telegram to President
Zeald war: "Your telegram is understood
and I have taken the necessary precautious against any contingency that may
arise. I telegraphed President Barrios
Os follows; 'Your telegram of the 7th
inst., announcing your determination to
declare Central America one republic and
assume yourself commander of all the
forces thereof, has been resisted energetically by your sister republic, and these
circumstances have created sueh antipathy to your cause among the Mexican
citizens that iny government will be
obliged to take immediate steps to pre*
vent the execution of your threat agamat
the Bister nationalities on this continent,' "
San Juan Del Sur, Nicaragua, March.
'12.- Active war preparations are being
made throughout the country. The government have now several thousand men
ready to send to the frontier. Strenuous
efforts to resist Barrios are being made
in Costa Rica. Large numbers of soldiers
are ready to move. Great enthusiasm is
manifested, and confidence in the final
result displayed. It is thought probable
in some quarters that Guatemala wiil
hesitate before attempting to coerce matters, and that a friendly solution of the
difficult problem of uniting the states
may be arrived at.
New York, Mareh 12.—The 'Times'
London cablegram says: The war cloud
is thick and black. After the optimism
to which the press and public have been
lending themselves during the past few
days, the reaction now has an added
force. For the fust time people seriously
felt the crisis thia afternoon, when the
whole European market went down,
while the vanderbilt roods and some
other American stocks showed a rise, on
tlie theory that war between England
and Russia would increase the traffic on
all the American grain roa'ds. Members
and politicians are generally excited over
thp situation. It is not believed that
war will be formally opened for some
time; but it is thought that the two
countries will be gradually drawn into it
by the fighting et the forces now on the
ground. The Russian advance is now
certain, and this is taken to mean a defiance to Earl Granville's ultimatum. It
is felt that it will be out of the question
for England to withdraw an inch, and
there is a unanimous sentiment in favor
of war.

on Walfish Bay and Orn Island noar
Angra Pequena.
London, March 12.—Consols to-day

The war scars is abating.
London, March 12,—Tlie relations between England and Russia are assuming
a more favorable aspect. Baron De Steal
has imparted to Granville the contents of
a dispatch from Do Griers, Russian minister of foreign affairs, in which it is
stated the Czar earnestly desires a speedy
and peaceful solution of the existing
difficulty. De Griers denies that the
Russian outposts have been advanced beyond what is claimed aa the frontier.
De Staal informed Granville that the
movement of the Russian troops towards
Askabad was not ordered until tbe position on the frontier became threatened.
Autograph letters have been exchanged
between Queen Victoria and Emperor
William, and the latter is urging hia per*
■oual influence with the Czar to preserve
peace. Bismarck remains passive and
has made no official representation to
Russia.
F. Burrows, of Wilkesport, writes that
he wu cured of a very dangerous case of
inflammation of the lungs, solely by the
use of five bottles of Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil. Feels great pleasure in recommending it to the public, aa he proved it
(for many of the diseases it mentions to
cure) through his friends, and in nearly
every instance it was effectual. Do not
be deceived by any imitations of Dr.
Thomas' Eclectrie Oil. Be sure yon get

St. PBTBIWOUiw, Mnreh 13.—The
tone of the Russian press continues
extremely bellicose. Open declarations are mado thnt Russia intends to
have Herat. The jVoom Vrenuja calls
thu nppro-iehing meeting of Lord Dufferin and tho Ameer of Afghanistan
a military demonstration on the Russian frontier. ''Russia nud England,"
the writer continues, "will soon meet
on dry land, and the result will be that
tlio isolated security hitherto enjoyed
by tho British empire will bo destroyed."
Kokti, March 13.—A report is current, anions tho natives to the effect
that the Mahdi has evacuated Metemneh. Tho reason alleged for this stop
is that the Mahdi feared an invasion
nbout to bu made iuto Soudan from
Abyssinia,
Paris, March 13.—Baron Mohren-
hoim, Russian ambassador, has been
interviewed in regard to thu present
Russian situation. He expressed tho
opinion that the Emperor William
would exert his influence to avert war,
and also endeavor to induce England
to make some concession. Be scouted
the idea that Russia would withdraw
her troops from positions at present
occupied. Such an action would reflect dishonor upon the Russian army.
In case England did not declare war
it was certain, in his opinion, that
Russia would not do so. He thought
it extremely unlikely England would
declare war, as she has her hands full
already. Degiera, Hio Russian prime
minister, is animated by n desire for
pence. The influence of the war party
in Russia has diminished since the
death of Gen. Skobeleff.

Amos Hudgin, Toronto, writes: "I
bave been a sufferer from Dyspepsia for
the past six years. All the remedies I
tried proved useless, until Northrop k
Lyman's Vegetable Discovery and Dyspeptic Cure was brought under my notice. I have used two bottles with tbe
best reaults, aud cau with confidence
recommend it to those atllicted in like
manner."
The Canadian Pacific—A Quebec
dispatch of March 0th says: Tho ac
tion of the Canadian Pacific representative at the recent conference of
the American trunk lines in Chicago
regarding tho through emigrant business goes to show that this company
has no idea of agreeing with the
American even on a differential rate
in favor of tho Canadian Pacific. To
the uninitiated and unobserving it
would naturally nppear that the building of the Canadian Pacific railway
was solely for the purpose of opening
up aud developing the Britiih Northwest. But as the completion of the
road draws near, still greater plana are
gradually but certainly intimated. The
Allan line of steamers is the connecting link between Great Britain and
Canada. This line has always enjoyed
the support of the government in the
carriage of mails and in the receipt of
froin 95 to $10 on every immigrant
landed. It is-now said that the owners of the steamship line are interested
in a land syndicate that has obtained
a tract of 4,000,000 acres of land in
the Northwest ou the Canadian Pacific.
The syndicate is said to have the active
co-operation of the Allan line system
of booking agencies in Great Britain
and even on tho continent. Another
feature of the plan is said to be to
place regular lines of steamers-ou the
Pacific ocean betwoen Port Moody und
the principal ports of China, Japan
and Australia, to compete for the
through traffic between these countries And England.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
(CoDtlaued.V
But lie never meant it ; ho was
alarmed at himself, Bhaken out of
all that ease which excitement gives,
tlmt possibility of believing what
— ...?-u. -,„-. *,,„»«_ «™rv*liiht! that
ted
_ wish; but though everythinj
lust night pointed to success Bosnia
now to point to despair, ho felt himself
clingilig on to the chance with desperation commensurate with the gloomy
prospect. Whatever it was to lead to,
he must <£fp on. After nil, prudence
itself sometimes fared as badly as
hardihood. An investment tlmt had
been calculated upon as the surest and
safest would sometimes turn out disastrous. Who could lull? Tho chances
of money wore beyond all calculation.
And, after nil, no one could say tliat
the ruin of tho hank would be for his
good. It woultl bu ruin t'i himself.
It was not a thing .that anybody could
suppose lie cuuld risk without dulibew
tion.
Ue was iu this euiulition, surging
and seething, when Rolfind visited
him, and brought him suddenly to
himsolf with the fnroe which an encounter with the world outside bo often
gives to a struggling spirit. Ho felt, i
with a wonderful sense of suU-satisfac- I
tion, that he was equal to the emergency, and confronted it with a sudden
gain of calm and strength which seemed to him almost miraculous, like what
men in holy work are justified iu considering help-from above, It could
not be help from above which supplied
Edward with self-possession and
strength for his first stops in tho career
of evil, but Btill the rcliof was great
He got the better of Roland, he extinguished the little virtuous plot
which he divined between him and
Harry and he returned to liis mom
with a smile ou his face. Hut. unco
back again there, ho did not feel tr:-
. imiphaut. He felt that ho was not
trusted—that already thoy suspected
liim nf having broken loose from their
society aud acting for himself. He
said to himself angrily that but for
this ho would probably have telegraphed to contradict that momentous letter
of lust night. But how could he do it
now ? it would bo pandering to their
prejudices, owning that he had taken
an un justifiable step. And-how wns it
unjustifiable? Was it not ho who wns
the virtual head, upon whose judgment
and insight everything depended?
Supposing Catherine to be consulted,
us had ceased to be the case for some
time, partly with, partly against, her
own will—but supposing her to bu
consulted now, would not she certainly
givo her adherence to Edward's judgment rather than Harry's. It was not
a question there could bo a moment's
doubt about. She would shake her
head and suy, "You are far more venturesome thnn ever I was, but if Edward really thinks—" Wus not that
always what sho had said .' And ten
years of experience had given him a
right to be trusted. He was acting for
the best, he looked for nothing but
success. It was nerves, mure nerves,
that had affected him—a reaction froni.
the excitement of last night.
And thus everything settled dowu.
When he gut over it, Edwnrd was the
most serene of .-ill (he doubtful group
whicli "8'urriiiindod him, lint knowing
what to mnke of him. Hurry, who
took w mattuv-nf-fnot wow, came next.
He,now thought it highly pr.-haliln, on
the whole, that his cousin had thought
better of it. How could he do anything else ' ilo had not means of his
own to ri^k to such tin extent, whicli
was a thought vory satisfactory to
Harry. Unkind Ashton was iir much
dissatisfied as men usually are who
endeavor in vain to see into ihe minds
of  thuir  neighbor*, and  offer good
uttieua which are not wanted. But the
most uneasy of all was Hester, who
that day, for ilie first time, took upon
her the in.ist painful burden of women
— the half-knowledge which is torture,
wliich the imagination endeavors lo
supplement iu a thousand unreal way.-,
knowing thein to b_ unreal, mid dis-
missing them us quickly us they are
.formed—and the hitter su-pcmic, Iho
sensation that at any uiioiierit things
may lm happening, news coining, whicli
will- bring triumph or misery, but
which you cannot fursae.or nccoflemte
or do utiylhiug but wait for. She did
her best to pray, poor girl! brunt li
broken petitions for she know not
what, as she went about her littlu occupations all thnt lingering day. Sure*
ly ho would try to sue ner again, to
satisfy her, and tell what it wa3 he hnd
done, and how it could be possible,
winning or losing, to Hy, as he had
suggested, from everything here. To
fly—how could it be? Why should it
be? All the other mysteries camo iu
that to wonder unspeakable and dismay.
There wan a dinner-party that evening at the Orange. It wna given on
account of Ashton, now woll known iu
Redborough, and Catherine Vernon
had taken the trouble to go herself to
beg Captain Morgan to lie one of the
party; but the old man had refused
steadily,
"1 will have none of your fine company," he said. ''No, no, you do
enough for mo here. When you come
to see us it Is always a pleasure both
to my old woman aud me, but a dinner, no, I have not had on my evening coat this dozen of year.-t. It's not
likely it would be iu tho fashion now.*'
"What does it matter about fashion?
You shall come ns you nro if ynu would
like that better," Cathorine said, but
she did not monn it, nnd of that they
were all perfectly aware, 'it is to do
honor to Roland. You arc no longer
so anxious to separate yourself from
Roland ns when ho came hero first,"
she said.
The old man did not say nuy thing,
but his wife answered for him.
"Wo will not commit ourselves,
Catherine, you know our way; but wo
think tho boy does us credit. 1 think
it might bo that if wo were left to ourselves wo might oven do a little matchmaking for him if we could."
"Are you como to that?" said Catherine; but thero was the echo of a sigh
in her voice. "That seems tu me to
mean a confession- -that we are not
enough for. them any longer, but still
that we will not give in, we will bo
enough for thom in another wny."
"Why should we bo enough for
them ?. We could not think thut was
possible, living far olf as wo do, nnd in
a different way. No, but out of pure
love, which is just as foolish as anything elso.' I nm the wisest in this respect, tot I know it will not do."
•'And who Jia the lady'/'1 Catherine
asked, with a smile.
The noxt moment she saw very well
who it was, for thoy did not make her
any reply. Old Mra. Morgan,.folding
her hands, said quietly, "It will never
answer," and the captain, leaving the
raantlepiece, against which he had
been leaning, with his faee fully presented to her questioning gaze, went
Md Mt down in his usual place near
the window, which aflorded no such
facilities lo a penetrating eye. They
did i.ot mean to tell her, uud shu knew..
She laughed, lo carry Off the littlo annoyance with wliich this preference
and prejudice, as she called it, always
moved her, and said, "You should
exert yourself in his sister's favor, by
all Bhe tells me she wuuld not be ungrateful," in a way which communicated the annoyance shu felt back again
to hor friends.
"We will uot meddle with Emma,"
said old Mrs. Morgan. "I'm tempted
to think sometimes that the blood gets
thin in a race when it runs too long,
like the last cup of my tea—whicli he
says is just hot water."
"Not so, not so," said old Captain
Morgan. "You nro growing a materialist in your old age: that is sometimes just the very essence and cream
of all. In story-books, when thore is
au old couple left like you and mo, tho
last child left with them to mako them
happy is a creature that is perfect."
"Oh, this is hearsay, indeed," cried
Catherine. "I will not havo you compare Eniuia to yuur last cup of tea.
There is nobody I meet with so original; and is she to stay longer nud havo
her chance ? or has she come to tho
height of her desires nii(l persuaded
Ihe gentleman to speak'?—there is
nothing I so much want tu know,"
But here Catherine became Vaguely
sensiblu of a sentiment which, according tu their own account, hud died out
long ngo in these old peoplo. Thoy
had declared themselves above prejudice in respect to thoir own tlesh and
blood. The captain, indeed, had
thrown off all responsibility, and nn
nouticed at Roland's tirst coming that
lie was not prepared to answer for him;
aud Emma h.id uot been so congenial
to then) ns Roland. Notwithstanding,
when their grandchild was thus freely
criticised it galled thein both. The
old lady betrayed a little rising color
of vexation and shauio, and Captain
Morgan got up again restlessly and
went nud stood ngalnst the window,
shutting out half the light, nnd turning his bnck—which was a very strong
slen, though but for a moment—upon
his guest.
"Shu has uot been brought up liko
oilier girls," said Mrs. Morgan. "Perhaps it was none of our duty; ifc is hard
to say. Wo knew nothing uf her; poor
little motherless thing, wo might have
brought her away with us; but these
are nil questions it is little use going
into now. Such* as sho is, she is a
goud girl in her way. When sho is
married, for she will lie sure to marry,
she will make a good, careful wife."
"One would think I had been saying
harm of Emma," cried Catherine, with
some quickness; "when the fact is I
am oue of those that like her most.
Shu is the most piquant variety of her
speuws, There iB nobody that amuses
nm su much, Sho knows what she
wants, which su few.do, and sho menus
to have it. She is quite honest and
straightforward. You do me an injustice in this."
Thero was nothing said hi reply, and
Catherino did not like tho position.
Perhaps the universal submission to
which alio was accustomed had spoiled
ber, though she wns so sum of seeing
through it.   She gut up iu go away.
"I must do without you then, uncle,
if I um not to have ynu: though 1
think it is a little hard upun me—nnd
upon Roland" to."
"We are always here when you want
Us, Catherine; as much us is in ns is
always ;it your service. It is nut
Hindi," said the old man, hobbling
after her to the door; "but your fine
house and your line people aro not in
her way nor iu mine. And what
should I do going back to tho world,
and her in the arm-chair? You see
youreelf .that would never do."
"It would delight her!"  said Oath-
t the door; "you know
 _.    Fancy her keeping you by her
because -she is not nblo-to. go out too!
it uium.it looks as if -but that is impossible-you did not understand a
woman yet."
The old captain laughed and shook
his wliite head.
"Persuade yourself that!'' he said;
"make yourself think that: that will
chime iu with the geneval opinion,
Catherine. If 1 were an old man on
the stago 1 iviuild, s;iy, there's no understanding woman. It I don't understand her and all ber ways, I am a
sillier old bluukhead than you think."
"Then you know that what I say is!
true—that she would like you to come !
—that it would please her—"
"Then it is she that is the silly old
woman thnt does not understand her
old man," Captain Morgan said.
Catherine left them with tho impression that they were in a mood beyond
her comprehension, It was a tine,
clear, almost warm day, and the roads
dry and walking pleasant. She had
come on foot, ns was not very usual
with her, and meant tu walk home.
She set out on her return, waving her
hand to Mrs. Morgan, but in no very
cheerful frame of mind. She had not
been cheerful when she left homo.
Hur iiiiutl misgave her as it had not
done before fur more years than she
could count. What was the reason
she could scarcely tell. Edward was
uot really less kind, less observant
of her comfort. The change she saw
in him was one indiscribnble, which no
one elso would hnvo suspected, which
iu nll probability existed iu her imagination alone. Why should she suppose evils that had no existence?
There was no one liko him, lio son so
dutiful to his mother, no one so ready
to mako any sacrifice for tho pleasure of
his home. If his looks hud been a little abstracted lately, if he had spent
his time away from her, if liis work
in his own room, which she had mado
so comfortable for Inm, which she had
been so anxious to assure him the exclusive proprietorship of, had increased.]
of late, perhaps this was merely tho
natural course of events. Or if he had
fallen in love—whnt then? Did the
bny perhaps think that she would bo
jealous ami stand iu tho wny of his
happiness? How littlo he knew! Provided only his choico wns a right one,
she wuuld open her arms and her heart.
She would bo ready to do anything for
their comfort. Thoto wns no sacrifice
she would not gladly mnke. Notwith
standing that somewhat nonsensical
mystical flourish of the old captain's
about his understanding of his wife,
Catherine believed, and with much
show of truth, that men rarely under-
■stofid women, and never kiiow how
ready they wore to arrange everything,
to giv« up everything, for the comfort
and ploasuro of those they loved,
What a welcome she w-.uld horself givo
to Edward's wife, though he was trembling and putting off and afraid to toll
her! What a reception that young man
should have! Provided always—but
with Edward's good taste and good
sense how could ho gu wrong in such a
choice 1
