That Guarantee.
In tlie absence of full particulars
eastern newspapers continue to puzzle themselves and their roailers
about tbe nature and extent of tlie
government guarantee of 0. F. R.
stook. The Now York press is not
generally friendly to the C. P. R,
although it is largely controlled by
New York capital, and the guarantee is put forward as nn indication
of serious embarrassment in the syndicate's financial arrangements. A
Toronto paper of a lato date has the
following:
We have shown how useless it is
to expect that intelligent men will
believe that the Company will take
twenty million dollars permanently
out of their available cash and deposit it with the Govern ment merely
that they niay be enabled to sell
forty-five million dollars' worth of
stock at some advance on the price
of 60 at which it was selling, .tnd
that the price of fifty-five millions
issued and suid to be sold mnv be
rendered more steady. Tlio Monetary Times, which can not be suspected of an unfi iondly feuHng either
towards the Government or the Company, is forced to odmit that the
whole t'lith is rot told. Fifteen
millions, it truly suvs, 13 a large
amount to be raised by a company
which is udujil ,edly in difficulties,
nnd it fears that it will not nil be
deposited in money; but if it be, it
may not mutter muoh whero or how
it is raised. Lut there remains the
question, Why should so largo nn
amount be deposited! It may be
taken for granted, as the Times says,
that the • guarantee would not be
given if the work could havo pro
ceeded to completion without it, and
it concludes, after due consideration
of the advantages which the organs
alleged the country would derive
from obtaining a loan on tho tei nis
slated, that "tho guarantee wea-'s
the aspect of making a new bargain
between the country and the company, a bargain in which all the
advantage will be on ono side," that
is tbe side of the Company, While
it may be possible to make such arrangements tbut the inteiest pro-
raised would be vhtutilly gunrsi)-
teed to the stoobholdei s, there is nothing in any statement yet published
to show that such arrangement will
be made. The 2'imcs says thut "tlio
guarantee so long as it runs wilt oi)-
suie a definite and certain dividend
to the holders of the stook; this is
the benefit it will confer on the
Company, and it is a real and very
substantial benefit." It is by no
means clear that this will be any
benefit to the persons who buy slock
now. For these the guarantee only
means that, of the money they pay
for stook, a part will be returned to
them under the name of interest
each year for ton years. To those
who hold the fifty-Ove millions already issued, tbe guarantee, should
it ba obtained, will prove "a real
and very substantial benefit" indeed.
But why is the guarantee extended
to that slock the holders of which
did not pay anything for it as those
who purchase henceforJi must pay I
There is much reason to suppose,
•s our correspondent "Stock E:;-
chaiigo" to-day suggests, tbat little
of that stock was acUm'ly sold, that
most of it is slill iu lhe bunds of the
old Syndicate and their fiiends, and
that the real object of thear-aDge-
nient is uot so much to enable tho
Company to sell the forty-five millions as to enable the members of
the Syndicate and their associates
■nd allies to unload such paitof the
fifty-five as they nominally purchased. Could they get rid of that ut
sixty, and sell enough of the foiiy-
five to cover the deposit, it would be
a splendid operation for them. It is
only by supposing this to bo the
real object that the arrangement us
staled in the organs is really intelligible. The organs do tell us that it
is expected thut tho deposit wilt he
raised iu New York in tho firat instance, and that thu stock when
guaranteed will become a favorito in
the London tnaiket, wheio hitherto
it has been almost unsaloab'c The
Monelary Times, groping for the
truth, says that, if moro thnn lil!
millions of the stock bu sold, the
cont "ol of thu load will puss f.
those who now hold it into the hvrii*
of Htiungeis. But us it is very evident tlmt the men who now control
thu road would not dream of raisin;;
and peinmucnt'v putting out of their
control so la-go u sum us twenty
millions unless tbey calculated on

The Mosquito,
Viewed through the microscope the
mosquito presents a picture of mechanical ingenuity us marvellous in execution us it is fiendish in design. In the
bill alone, which seems so fragile to
the unaided night, there is a combination of livo distinct surgical instruments. These are a lance, two meat
saws, and a suction pump. Tho fifth
instrument I have forgotten, but labor
under the impression that it is a portable Corliss engine to run the rest of
the factory with. I know that the hum
of the mosquitoes in the cottonwoud
thickets along the Lower Mississippi
reminded me constantly of the hum ef
a manufacturing village, aud several
times I walked back several miles looking for a town before I could convince
myself that tho buzzing I heard was
made by mosquitoes, with their engines running to sharpen their sans.
When the insects operate on a man,
tho lance is first pushed into the flesh,
then the two saws, placed bnck to
back, begin to work up nnd down to
enlarge tho hole. Then tho pump is
started aud the victim's blood is
syphoned up into the reservoir carried
behind, and finally, to complete the
cruelty of the performance, the wretch
drops a quantity of poison into tho
wound to keep it irritated.—Forest and

Telegraph Tapping.
"It requires an expert telegrapher
to tap a wire successfully," said Manager J. H. Simmons, of the American
Uapid Telegraph Company, whilo conversing on the subject of Ihe recent
pool-room steals on the Coney Island
races. "In order tu fidsifv the reports
it was necessary to out into ths wire
between Coney Island nnd New Vork,
aud then sond the 'queer' dispatch into
the New York offico, keeping trnek of
the straight report from the Island
meanwhile. Besides being a first-claw
operator, tho mnn who did tho work
must of necessity havo possessed n
thorough knowledge of the wires, ns
ho might easily have tapped eighteen
or twenty before getting the right one,
For that reason I imagine that the per-
son who worked the scheme hnd n
dii'gratn of the wires, to obtain whioh
he would hnve to know the workings
of the mam office very well. I conclude that operators who hud heen out
of employment, with nothing to do
but work up shames for their financial
benefit, were at the head of the enterprise. They must havo taken a large
ring in on tho deal in all tho large
spur) ing cities, for in Chicago, Pittsburg, Cincinnati, und St, Louis the
nool-rooms wure nil worked. The
horses thut stood no earthly chance of
winning woro bought for almost nothing by these sure thing speculators,
and to tho surpriao of every one thoy
-were tho winnovs. When tho fact thnt
the fraud had been practiced wns made
known, some liours Inter ilie ticket
had beon all cashed, and ihe Ihrifiy
gamblers were uot lu be found."
"Is this wire-tapping industry carried on very extensively?" inquired
iho reporter.
"Not so often as might be supposed.
It requires such a degree of skill iu
the business thnt a man competent (o
thrive at cutting wires and falsifying
reports could command large pay as an
employee of any of the companies.
There was a Western Union wiro running out of Pittsburg cut n while ago
and n messago -.ont that cost tho
American Express Company more thnn
8!J0,0U0 at ihe lime- ho^ttUra no end of
trouble nud additional exp-mne looking
for tho mnn who hnd the 'bundle.'
They nro engaged in .he sunrchyel.
Tho express messenger on ono of the
Pennsylvania Company's linos received
n despatch, when a fow miles out of
Pittsburg, ordering him fo-turn over
tho train at a certain station to one of
the company's men, who would exhibit
the proper credentials. The regular
ngont was further instructed to take
the met train buck to Pittsburg. Am
the despatch was perfectly correct in
form nud bore the nume of thu Superintendent, tho messenger's suspicions
were not stirred up iti tho slightest,
and ho begnn lo nrrnnge lm cur in ordor lu mako thu transfer. At the station designated the stranger hearing
his orders boarded the train nud as-
Biimud charge, receiving memoranda of
the amount-! of munuy in tho different
packages, uud alio of tlie various articles of value i'i the car. The new

three stations further down the rond

Gross Neglect.
Dining Sir Alexander Campbell's
visit to this province wo took occasion to publish u statement respecting tliu presents piomised to the
Indian chiefs who wero presented to
tho Marquis of Lorno und Princess
Louise. It is not necessary now to
repeat the particulars. It will be
sufficient to say thut tho chiefs presented tho Marquis nnd Princess
with a number of gifts wliich to
them wero of considerable vulue.
They lookod for no return, but the
Marquis voluntarily promised them
certain gifts as mementoes of tho
occasion. But although many
months lmvo now elapsed since tlmt
promise was made, mul tho Marquis
and bis wife liavo actually left the
country and gone back to England,
the Indians bavo received nothing. We beliovo the local Indian
agent has leapt the authorities in
remembrance of this mutter, and we
know that Sir Alexander Campbell's
attention was called to tlie statement
which appeared in the Columbian,
• and we must say Hint the gross
neglect shown liy those who nro
responsible is very much to be 1*0
gretted. To such things as tliese
the Indians arc peculiarly sensitive,
und it is unaccountable why such a
delay sbould occur in tlie fulfilment
el u voluntary promise. We repeat that thu Indians are vory much
disappointed and dissatisfied, and
we sincerely hope that steps will
bo taken to have tho grievance
adjusted.
Chinese Evidence.
The Holt case, tried at the assize court last week, brings out another phase of the Chinese question.
At tlie preliminary trial tho Chinese
wilnesseii testified with great unanimity that Holt had colnmitted a
serious and unprovoked assault on
ono of their countrymen. Tho same
evidence came out substantially Inst
week. Bnt it waa met by the testimony of a number of white men,
whose htntemoiits we have no renson
to question, flatly contradicting the
most important particulars. The
conclusion wliich must he reached
horn tbis ia tbat Chinese evidence
under oath is not reliable, If this
he turn.- as a general assertion it
becomes necessary that very great
caution should be exercised by tho
courts to prevent white men sufi'er-
ing innocently from a conspiracy of
Chinamen. In many cases ono
white man is left in charge of a
Chinese gang. If any accident
should happen, and the Chinamen
should think fit to fasten guilt upon
the white man, tbey might succeed
without difficulty if their statements
are to be accepted in court We
believe a Chinaman should receive
tlie same justice and protection us
any other person; but if they enter
into conspiracies for tbe purpose of
defeating tbe ends of justice, it will
be their, own funeral if tbey find
themselves sometimes debarred from
tbe protection of our law and courts.
The value of Chinese evidence is a
very broad study.
Terminal Grievances.
Port Moody seems to have an
unusually large number of grievances. First thero is tbe incorporation matter over wliich a great
deal has been said and written. It
is difficult to imagine what object
the people of Port Moody have in
seeking incorporation, but we have
already shown by facts which cannot be doubted tliat the application
waa illegal nnd fraudulent. If tho
wish still remains, however, and the
conditions are such as to satisfy tbe
law, it is quite possible incorporn
tion may be bad on application.
Wo aro of opinion, however, that
such a movement is most injudicious
at the present time, nnd would not
be in tho interest of Port Moody.
Another grievance has been found
in tbe polico and lockup accommodation. We ure told that the lockup is far too small and very insecure. We believe tho Port Moody
lockup furnishes very nearly as
much accommodation as the ono at
Granville, which serves the three
towns of Granville, Hastings and
Moodyville, Any one ef theso
places has a much larger population
than Port Moody, and yet we nre
told that Port Moody is grossly
neglected by tbe government. The
people of Port Moody aro anxious
also to hnve a stipendiary magistrate. This, we believe, is a reasonable wish. There should certainly
he machinery furnished for the
prompt trial and conviction of poisons who disturb the pence.
Either the government sbould np
point two resident justices of the
peicf, or « itipendiry magistrate.
But the difficulty has been to find
gentlemen resident ub Port Moody
who were able nnd willing to accept
these positions. Until lately suitable men could not be found who
would accept. We believe there
are uow one or more gentlemen resident at Port Moody who would consent to uot as either justices of the
peace or stipendiary magistrate, and
wo liavo already expressed tho
opinion that an appointment should
be made without delay. We are
informed thnt drunkenness among
Indians, and worse than drunkenness, lias become very common. This
will undoubtedly grow unless
promptly dealt with, ami prompt
measures can only bo applied efficiently by a resident court. There
aro other forms of ciime which require regulation by'the firm hand
of the law if Port Moody is to
become a desirable place of residence. We hopo that in selecting
a stipendiary magistrate, or justices
of the peace, the government will
make choice of such persons as may
be relied upon to administer the
laws with firmness and wisdom, We
fully sympathise with the wish of
the people that a resident should
receive the appointment, if a suit
ablo person can be found to accept
it. As a rule carpet-baggers do not
command the snmo respect or acquire the Byrne status as residents
wbo havo a bona fide interest in tbe
community. Wo sincerely hope a
suitable person will be found und
that a court will soon be established
at Port Moody. The peoplo of the
terminus have still another grievance in the matter of mails. The
mail goes from tluB city twice a
week, but it goes only to tbo end of
the north road, wliich is extremely
inconvenient for Port Moody. Communication between tbe town of
Port Moody and the post offico is almost impossible by land, and both
unpleasant nnd costly by water. The
post office should undoubtedly be
removed to some placo near the rail'
wny whnif. There is still tbe road
grievance which just now seems to
ho very serious, Of this we shall
bivye something to sny in a future
issuo.

illness whieh she bore with patience
and Christian fortitude. Mr. Innes,
wittt his family, came from near London, Ont. about 1.3 years ago, and
settled on the well known "Ontario
Farm" where he 1ms' resided ever
since, Mrs. Innes was a native of
Scarboro, Ont., and waB 37 years of
age at the time of her death. She
was an exemplary member of the
Presbyterian church,, a devoted wife
and mother, her devotion to lior family showing itself in a touching manner till the lost moments of life. Her
brother lately arrived on a visit from
Ontario, and everything that medical
skill could BUggest was done to stay
the ravages of consumption from
whieh she hns been suffering for four
years. She leaves a husband and
seven children to mourn her loss, and
they have the deepest sympathy of the
neighborhood. Tho funeral will take
place to-day, leaving the Occident

Court of Assize.
(llcforo Mr. Justice McCrelglit,)
HGOINA V. MA8TEI18.
This caso, which has acquired a
great doal of publio. interest, was
taken up on Monday. The evidence
taken before tho coroner's jury last
Soptombor was very full, nnd wns published at great length iu tho Columbian. Mrs. Alex, Mitchell, of the
North Arm, was delivered of a ohild
on Wednesday the 5th Sept. She was
attended by Dr. Masters, of Granville. She was taken seriously ill on
the following Sunday, and became
delirious. Dr. Masters was sunt for
on Monday, and prescribed for her.
On Tuesday Bho was no letter, and
Dr. McLeod of this oity wns sunt for.
He remained with her until near the
timo of her death, Wednesday forenoon. In consequence of a suspicion
of malpractice a complaint. was laid
before Coroner Trew, who held an
inquest on the body, and a post mortem examination wns mado. Dr. McLeod gavo it as his opinion that she
died frum blood-poisoning, resulting
from part of thu placenta having beeu
allowed to remain. Tho post mortem
seemed to corroborate this opinion, as
part ot the placeuta was found in tho
womb, and Dr. Masters was committed
011 a chargo of manslaughter. Tho
case for tno crown was conducted by
Messrs. Corbould and McUoll, and
Messrs. Drake and Bolo appeared for
the prisoner. The prisoner pleaded
not guilty, Both put-ties challenged
a number of jurors, and when the
jury had boen completed. Mr. -McColl delivered tho opening address.
He said the charge was one of manslaughter, whioh differed from murder
in that there waB un intention to
kill. The prisoners was a physician,
and as such was called to attend the
deceased. When the law imposes curtain duties upon a person, or whon
certain duties aro assumed, if thero is
criminal neglect the person will be
held responsible. He read from an
English caso to show responsibility of
medical attendants, A physician was
bound not only to use proper remedies,
but to use them with judgment. Ho
called tho attention of the jury particularly to four points iu the case:
(1) Tho failure of the physician to remove thu whole of tho placenta; (U)
thu treatment givon under the circum-
stauens; (II) the wound by tho instrument; (4) the general course of treatment. Tho lint witness was Alex.
Mitchell, husband of the ducunsed,
but his evidence brought unt very
few facts whioh have not already boon
published. The distance from his
place to Granville is about 8 miles, 3
by water and 5 by land. Dr. Masters
came promptly when sent for, but remained only a short time, saying he
wns in a hurry ns he had other cases to
attend to. On Sunday before her
death she was removed from the room
in whieh she waa c-.nfined to a smaller,
room off the kitchen, as the large room
had a bad smell and the other was
considered more comfortable. He denied that she had been Bitting by an
opon window. She sat up iu a rocking
chair only about two minutes. In reply toa juryman he said Dr. Masters
did not appear to bo undor the influence of liquor, but was nervous uud
scorned like a person who had been
previously drinking. He had made
arrangements with Dr. Jfazfcers about
three weeks previous tu her confinement.
Wm, Lawrence, brother of the deceased, was sent for Dr. Masters, but
his evidence did not touch any vital
pnrt of the case.
Mrs. Thornber gave her evidence
with great precision, but nothing was
elicited from her which has not already
been published.
Dr. MoLeud's evidence wus a repetition of bts former testimony, with
respect to the main facts. He said a
physician icnioviiig tho placenta by
hand Bhould be able to tell if any portion of it was left. Cases muy occur
where it is best not to remove the placenta at once. In such eases proper
antiseptic remedies Bhould be used.
Blood poisoning is a very dangerous
disease. When he took the case the
disease had bo far progressed that he
considered it'hopeless. He had laid
information in' this action as a matter
of self-defence. A brother of deceased
told him Dr. Masters hnd stated that
it was his (Dr. MeLeod's) treatment
that had produced death. Before laying information ho had consulted Dr.
Clarke. Puerpural fever might result
from other causes than retained placenta. It might arise from tho nurse
if Bho had been handling putrid matter, or from putrid discharges on the
bed. In reply to Mr. Bole he stated
that he had felt some anxiety to
know what questions he would hu asked
in cross-examination. Mr. Rand hnd
told him that a copy of the questions
might be obtained from Mr. Bole's
clerk for a consideration. Ho understood the clerk himself had made the
offer, nnd he was prepared to entertain it nnd would have given perhaps
$30 fur the questions. Mr. Bole characterized such conduct as disgraceful,
and offered to prove that his clerk had
never mado such a proposal.
Dr. Bentley was tho next witness.
He detailed tho circumstances of the
post mortem ns already published, and
said that in the womb ho found a portion of the placenta adhering to the
posterior internal surface. His opinion was that death wns caused from
puerpural septicoma arising from tho
absorption of retained placenta. Saw
nothing else that would cause death.
/Good practitioners sometimes left n
portion of the placenta, but it waB
always a source of danger and antiseptic remedies should be used. If
the pationt had caught cold ho would
oxpcqt to find perutonitis, of which he
found uo indications, Iu general practice a physician should not leave his
patient aftor delivery until ho wns
Butistied everything was right. Usually
a physician' is -expected to make at
least two visits nfter confinement, without additional foe. It is usual to remove the placenta by hand when forco
is necessary. Where dono in this way
a portion of it could not bu left without the knowledge of the physician.
He corroborated Dr. MoLeod'a evidence that blood tioistming might result from other causes than retained
placenta. He swore positively that
what ho found at the post-mortem was
a part of the placeuta. The removal
of tho deceased from ono room to anothor on Sunday was dangerous; but
it might be best if the room was damp
and unwholesome. If there were no
menns of reaching the patient Dr. Mas-
ton would be justified in not visiting
her again; if ho had had the case, and
had left a portion of the placenta, ho
would havo made arrangements to visit
tho patient somo how. After Dr.
Bentley s evidence the court adjourned
ut 10.30 p. m., the jury being locked
up for the night.
Dr. Thos. R. Mclnnes, a new witness, stated that the usual practico in
such casos was to wait a short timo
after birth for tho expulsion of the
placenta by natural process. If not
expelled within reasonable time he
would administer medicines to nssist,
and these failing ho thought it would
be proper to uao the hand. If the
placenta wero broken it might he impossible to know if tho whole had
been removed. If a portion remained
thero would bo danger of blood poisoning. In cases where doubt existed ns
to the total expulsion of the placenta
ho would not use remedies until the
symptoms appeared. One symptom
would be n bad odor. The number of
visits paid by a physician would de-
pond on tho circumstances and distance. Ho had attended several cases
on. tho North and South Anus, nud
had pnid only one visit, but ho would
have returned if he considered it
necessary. In all theso cases ho had
110 doubt about tho removal of the
placenta. In casos whore auch a doubt
uxiittcd ho would consider it his duly
to bo informed respecting Lhe condition of tho pationt. Blouil poisoning wns a most dangoruiis disease, nud
the symptoms illicit appear two days
aftor coiiHiiomunt, He had had about
12 ensca of puurpttral fuvor 111 hia practice, aud about half uf them arusu
from unknown cmtioa, Nu had known
onsoa of puerpural fever whero the
placenta had beun entirely removed,
uud cases where part of the placenta
had been allowed to remain without
evil results. Ergot of ryu was usod
to nssist the expulsion of placenta,
It might bo mistaken for laudanum by
an inexperienced person,
, Tho ense for thu deftmco was opened
by Mr. Bide in a long address, hi which
he minutely reviewed the evidence ami
combattod the opinions of tho witnesses. The. first witness called for the
defence wus Wm. Lawrence, who was
sent to oall Dr, Masters. He suid he
might have told Mr. Black that his
sister eat up the night before aud
caught cold, but wan positive he said
nothing about an open window.
George Black, sworn, said he resided at Hastings; saw Lawrence on the
Monday morning ho came for Dr.
Musters; inquired nbout Mrs, Mitchell's health; he said she was -verse;
had been very bud ever since-Suiuluy
night when she sat up at nn opon
window and caught cold. Was positive Liwrenco said shu was sitting up
at an open window.
Rev. Mr, Thompson, nnid Dr. Masters' reputation -is a physician, in the
neighborhood nud in Iuh own experience, was good, Tho Dr. attended
lii-i wife, aud she came through all
riuht. Ho judged simply from the
result in lhat case.
Mr. A. .Jacks'.11 was then eallod
and wont through a long direct and
cross examination aa to his connection
with tho post mortem. He was followed by Dr. Duvie, of Victoria,
whose opinion us tin export differed
considerably from that of the other
physicians. The evidence of theso
two witnesses, nnd the rest of the
case, must be reserved till next issue.

they will bo able to submit a definite
report to thu company before the lst
of February noxt. The work of construction will then bo renewed us soon
as tho frost will permit in the spring,
all reports to tho contrary notwithstanding. At least, such was the ih-
tontion of tho company when Major
Camp left the summit, and upon his
return tu Minneapolis he found a telegraphic order for 500,000 feet of
timber, none of which will bo required
this fall, but which the company wishes
to get through to the ond of the track
during thu fnll and winter, so as to
bo rendy for early work in the spring.
When leaving the summit Major Camp
bade adieu to Engineer Hogg and Mr.
Ross, general manager of construction
on the Canadian Pacific, as they were
going down the pass, with the intention of making an examination of the
route next to the Columbia river, and
if found practicable, us they anticipated, it will undoubtedly bo adopted
instead of the Kicking Horso or
Howe's pass. This new route will bo
about thirty miles longer than by the
passes above mentioned, but by cutting out n tunnel from a mile to a mile
nud a half in length, it can he reduced
to nearly the same distance as tliat
first selected by the engineers.—St

YeBterday Maj. Geo. A. Camp, who
haa just returned from an extended
trip over the line uf the Canadian
Pacifio railway, was called upon for
information, iu regard to the present
condition of the enterprise and tlie
plans of the company for the future.
This courso was considered tlie mosl
fonsible for obtaining fads, because
Maj, Camp ii known to bo iutlmatelj

The Oold Fever or '57.
THRILLING ADVENTURE ON THE FRASER.
An old gold hunter at Coupevillo
publishes the following remniscence
of tho gold excitement uf '57 on tho
Fruxer River: "During tho winter of
1857 reports rcaehod us nt Port Madison that gold had been discovered on
Fraser river, in Uritish Columbia.
Having had experience iu gold mining
in California, and knowing tho advantage of boing first iu a newly discovered
gold region, a party uf nino adventurous young men determined ou a
prospecting tour to that country. It
was to us a far-off, unknown land, and
our first difficulty was to find a person
to pilot us to tho mouth of tho river.
After much inquiry u person named
Bucheldur was found, a former em-
ployeu of tliu Hudson Hay Company,
who had made u trip to or up that
river. His services being secured, wc
chartered the schooner llovor, Capt.
Hicks, to take us to Fort Langley.
Knowing that we were to enter a
strange Indian country we armed uur-
Belvci each with Colt's navy revolver.-;,
besides having in tho Company several
shot-guns and onu or two riflus. Leaving Madison iu April, IS.VS, -vo proceeded to Gamble to purehuso a canoe
largo ou'pugh to no&munotlntu the entire party, togothur with a mining out-
lit, Ou a sand-spit opposito Gatnole
waa a largo Indian camp, whoru we obtained a enuoe. Aftor procuring an
outfit and supplies at Fowler & Wil-
sou's stor-i iu Port Townsend wo Sot
sail. Thu wind was fair, though blowing rather fresh, considering tlio small
si/.u of our craft, us we soon Inuiid out
rounding Point. Hudson. We ran in
thu tide-rips oil Point Wilson, whero
the wind then lulled, making it impossible to keep thu oanou from being
forced, against tite schooner by tho
heavy rollers. To get us out of the
way, and for safety, tho Captain ordered us below and closed the hatches.
Presently tho Captain shouted out thnt
hu would have to out the canoe adrift,
but if ho wanted to save it we could
get in it and paddle. In a moment
four of us stood ready, paddles in
hand, and as the canoe ctiniii forward
on n liugo roller we sprang in, bareheaded and stripped for tho occasion,
and a littlo anxious as to thu result.
We stoored for Smith Island, whero,
finding smoother water the canoe was
again taken in tow, a lire wus built in
tlie stove, nnd soon we were cracking
jokes ovor a repast of boiled salmon,
hard tuck and cott'ee. Propelled by a
gontlu breono wo had every opportunity
of viewing thu surrounding scenery.
In tlio foreground \m tho Ban Juan
Islands, whicli wo woro entering, whilo
towering iu the distance over all stood
snow-crowned Mt. Baker; astern lay
tliu large island of Whidby, whilo to
the westward reaching to tho sea wero
the Coast ltaugu muinit-iiiiH. Kntoring
Hosurio Straits we saw a numbor of
seals constantly plunging ot! the rocks
into tho sea, while innumerable ducks
putted tho wator with their wings,
clearing a passage for the coming
schooner.   In a littlo cove at tho en
trance to the Gulf of Georgia we came
to nnchor und camped for the night.
On the next day wo crossed tho gulf,
and after a few hours' search we entered tho Frasor.   Here we found a number of Indians, who were anything but
communicative.   However, not desiring anything of them, it was a matter
of indifference to us, so we anchored
for the night.   The* following morning
wo sailed up the river.   The river sailing was something new and perfectly
delightful. Speeding along, apparently
void of   motion, with ever-changing
scenery on the river bunk, not a sound '
but that of our own voices and the
sharp cry of the startled birds at their
strange visitors.   Proceeding   thus a
few miles wo came in view of what appeared a fork in the rivor.   Appealing
to our pilot ho could recollect of no
rivor entering the Fraser below the
Langly,   Not wishing  to  take   the
wrong   channel we dropped anchor
While consulting as to tlie best course
an Indiun was seen skirt ing the opposite bank of tho river in a small canoe.
We hallooed to hiin, but ho apparently
puddled faster, und wu resolved to man
our own canoo and give ehasc. A number jumped into the canoe and started
in pursuit, and soon gained on tho
fugitive, when presently wo discovered
that he had disappeared with his canoo
into   what  appeared   to   be  another
branch of the Fraser.   Into this we
plunged at full speed, unwilling to lose
the game wo woro bo nenr bugging.
About 100 yards from its mouth this
inlet made a sharp bend to the right.
At full speed wo round tho bond, when
there suddenly opened out to our vision
more than we looked for.   Sitting on
the grnBS-covered bank about four feet
above the water was our Siwash, with
about thirty compunionsj all with fully
cocked guns resting across their knees,
and looking at us.   The canoe was
headed straight for them, and before
any one cared  to speak she struck
against tho bank not fifteen feet from
the muzzle of their guns.   For a fow
seconds no one spoke, and I guess,
hardly breathed.   Our pistols wero at
our sides, but we didn't want any pistols just then, nor any Siwashes, nor
did we care to look into the muzzles of
their guns any longer.   Sitting in the
bow of the canoe I looked back on re
pale a lot of faces as one often meets.
Our interpreter spoke, asking to know
the way to Langley.   For a moment
not a woid in reply camo.   Then ono
gun wus raised, when all, to our relief,
followed.  Talk of boing paralyzed or
having your hair crawl and stand on
end! I think I experienced it all at
thut  moment.   The Indian wo had
chased had reported that a canoo full
of Northern' Indians were coming to
attack them, which accounted for our
hostile reception.   It was a genuine
scare to them as well as to us.   Th
women wero running from their houses
to   the woods ' for safety,   carrying
baskets of valuables ou their hacks.
But as soon as they found wo were not
on the war-path they returned, shaking their fists ut us for giving thom
such a fright.   Wo hired an Indian to
show us to Langley.

NELLIE'S  MEMORIES.
(Continued.)
"What of hut party, Mrs. Egorton?
I don't remember."
"Not remember, Nellie, lovo, when
yon laughed till the tears rolled down
your f iico'rf—don't, you recollect the
innocent, simple follow rubbing his
hands and talking so pleasantly with
Archdeacon Clyde, and all the time
with a great patch of whitewash on
Ihb shoulder na big us my two hands,
not to mention the saw-duBt on his elbows and knoea. Oh, how tho Archdeacon laughed, and that inutility
Bruce brought tha olothes'-brush into
the drawing-room."
"True, I for?ot. Hark! thero's tlio
first arrival, Mrs. Egerton; Mrs. Bluf-
fington, I suppose."
ft wns only Dudley and Bruce, who,
(hiding the homo parlor dull, followed
us speedily.
"Well, Mrs. Egorton, how are you?'
said Dudley, coming up to her sofa aud
giving her tho kiss he always vouchsafed on birthdays and high-days.
She war his and Bruce's god-mother.
"You sob wo have come early, nfter
nll; where's tho parson, ma'am?"
"Down among the dead men," re-
plied Halcot, whose fingers were
Jingling noisily among the lusters on
ths mantel-piece; *'ho s bottling wine,
don't you henr," and ho drew divers
corks with an alarming approach to
reality, standing on tho bright fender
nil the timo in his excitement.
Bruce wnlkod quietly up to him and
dislodged him by tho ear from his
perilous resting-place and marched
him off tu a distant window-seat.
"Don't ho such a bully, Bruce,"
muttered the boy.
"Don't yon bo such an unmannerly
young jackanapes," replied his mentor. "Hark! there aro tho Waldo-
gravos—como, behave yourself, Hal.
You spoil him dreadfully, Mrs. Egerton; he forgets ho is not at home."
"No, ho does not," growled Halcot,
"only they aro not such prigs horo as
you!" but furthor remarks wero
Bileiiced by the entrance of Dr. Waldo-
grave and party, and tho Grosvenors—
and for tho noxt hour I had plouty of
occupation iu securing seats for tho
dowagers, and devising small talk and
pleasant companions for a few shy
young curates that huddled together
in a cornoi' of the-room, and looked
sheepishly out on thu rest of the
party over their high olerical collars.
Thoso curates always gave me niovo
trouble than aU the other peoplo put
together; they would not oome out
and lie introduced to some High Church
young lady dying to know thom. mid
giving me broad hints of her wishes
on the subject, and they would persist in looking unspeakably wretched.
One young curate in particular,
scarcely more than a boy, who always
had holes in his great lavender gloves,
and blushed up to the roots of his
hair whon even looked at, was a most
distressing oxample of tho clerical
biped. Nothing could bu extracted
from him but a few harmless platitudes delivered in a feeble stammering
voice, and the least approach to a joke
would throw him into a fever of nervousness. I never saw him wiping
his faco, which ho did about thirty
times in an evoning, and clearing Iub
voice behind his hand, without pitying
him sincerely, and wishing he had n
mother or sister to take him quietly
away. And yet I knew him to be a
Kealuus -lohn iii his profession, driving
furiously, and driving well, leonine in
his courage in the pulpit, and showing his ugly boyish face to his congregation from theuco with a steady
composure and earnestness that well
became it.
So I not only pitied the Reverend
Herbert Blaine, but liked him, and
did hiin a good turn on the ovening
in question; for, finding him uncomfortably sitting on the edge of his
chair by Emma Sunderland, n pretty,
spectacled, and moat objectionable
young lady, and being talked to ou
tho subject of the "Oolito Formation"
and the structure of the Plesiosaurus
—at least T hoard thoso words frequently--I rescued him, not without
difficulty, and placed him instead
under Mrs. Travel's1 motherly wing,
who talked to him nbout his Manchester home, and his father's mill,
and his rough school-boy brother, and
the pleasant old house in Whallcy
Rango.
tt wns eight o'clock, aud the room
was rapidly filling. I had boen iu the
library some time, and on my return
became aware of a fresh arrival and a
perfect stranger to me. It was a lady
about Beven-nnd-twunty, Bitting somewhat apart from tho general group,
turning over some engravings on a
side-table.
Something in the sweep of the
silver-gray dress and a graceful contour of the bont head attracted my
attention, and I at onco caught hold
of Seymour and asked who Bhe was.
"All right, go and talk to hor," said
he, not iu the least understanding my
question, and rushing off to show a
clever trick to two curates iu the cor-
tier; so remembering my character ns
assistant hostess, I crossed the room
and introduced myself. At my first
word she raised her head and returned
my greeting with a gesture full of
grace, at the same time replying with
a high-bred case that met mo moro
than half wny. As she did so, I
thought then, as I think now, and
shall till I die, that it was tho most
beautiful faco I had over seen. It
was not so much her features, though
they were singularly atlractivu, as the
grave and noble air that distinguished
them, and tho mingled repose nnd
sweetness in lip nnd eye. Sho was
dressed richly, yet with a certain
stern simplicity; and she woro her
bright brown hair folded bnck in loose
full bands, as I lovod to seo it; and
her smile waB sweet and lingered long
as she spoke.
"You aro very good to introduce
yourself to mo, Mias Mortimer; yon
English wo so slow generally to wel-
oome strangers. It fi not from want
of goodness uf heart, I beliovo, so
much as from tho manvaise honk that
impedes your society and makes it
ro cold."
Though sho said "ynu English,"
and spoko in tho liquid acconted tones
of ouo who had dwelt among foreign
ers, I folt satisfied ahe was not run
herself, nor waa I mistaken.
"I must return your courU-sy," she
com tinned, "and commend my name
to your notico; Iron Marion Vivian,"
"Not Vivian of tho Priory, surelyl"
"Why not ol the Priory?" she replied, smiling archly at my surprise;
''not that I expect a Mortimer of Sunnyside to recognize me; wo have beeu
so long exiles in a foreign land, that
our name must almost hnvo died out
among our neighbors and friends, and
we ourselves bo supposed to have died
out with it.
I Ht down beside her quite bewil-
dered
"I otrUinly ban a ragu* "men*
brance of a Marion Vivian some fif-
teen years ago, of n bright-eyed little
girl we used to meet in the early mornings, walking with her governess."
Miss Vaughan laughed.
"Then I ought to have moro than a
vague recollection, boing the elder by
many years of the happy littlo creatures—girls and boys, and white-
headed infants—always playing hi that
shady lane, or laughing out at ino
from tho windows of the large white
houBo; but my memory is ns indistinct na yours, for the strange wandering life I have led these many years
has somewhat blotted out tlie past; but
still, wherever I went I carried with
me the fond remembrance of my dear
old homo."
She paused and sighed slightly, and
thon went on in a brighter tone;
"You must havo been our nearest
neighbor, Miss Mortimer, then as now;
how was it then that tho heads of our
families wore not more friendly with
oach other? We children, though wo
met day by day and exchanged words
and smiles, never played together.
It seemed strange to her, but we
had always understood from our
parents that Mr. Vivian was a proud,
reserved man, littl given to making
friends of Iub neighbors, and only mixing with the highest county families;
and that his wife was even haughtier
and moro distant than ho; but I could
not explain this to Miss Vivian, so
only said how pleased 1 wns to hear
lhey were homo again.
"Yus, but not to stay," alio replied,
smiling; "you do not suppose we are
bats, to live iu such ruins, I have
only como to Bee the dilapidations,
and decide on repairs and alterations;
and a few minutes' conversation with
our bailiff convinced mo that six
months' work will hardly effect all I
hnve planned."
"And you camo over alone?"
"Yos, with Dominique, our major*
domo, and my maid Babetle; we have
beon hero four days bivouacking rfh
tho firat floor, whicli is the only habitable portion. We shall leave again
for Paris on Thursday."
"A fleeting visit, truly "
"But sufficient for my purpose,
which was to put the work in train.
Oh, tho dear old place, wretched, dilapidated, ruined as it looked on thu
first night of our arrival, with its
broken terraces and wilderness of
gardens; I felt ao huppy to see it again,
that if it had not been for Dominique
and Bubotto, I could have knelt down
and kissed the threshold. It has not
been my wish, these fifteen years'
o:;ile of ours; in our bright southern
home; not Italy's sunny skies and our
beautiful Neapolitan villa could compensate me for the loss of homo."
"It was your father's wish then?"
Sho inclined her head with a slight
gesture of assent.
"Your wanderings are over now,
Miss Vivian, or will, bo; you will be
back with the summer all of you, I
hope."
"All, sho repented, with n sigh, "all
—iliero are but Eleanor and I to como;
we leave our father and Harold behind; do you comprehend me?"
Too well, m her lowered tone and
reverent utterance.
"Wo were four when wo firat loft
tho Priory, but wo leave our eldest
nnd youngest behind us. It was vory
sad to loose our father, who was old
and suffering and longing to go, but it
was worao to lose our boy, our eagle-
eyed Harold, the hopo and prido of
us all. Well, it was many years ago.
I can boar to tell you.
"Ono day he sot out in his little
boat, on the great, calm, treacherous
bay, and before noon a storm arose,
and when the boat rode in nt evening
time, thero was no Harold there; and
tho next morning some Neapolitan
fishermen found him lying on the
beach with his bright hair all tangled
with seaweed, and the life buffet ed
and beaten out of his dear brave heart,
and they canted him home and laid
him nt his father's feet. He was an
old man," finished Miss Vivian, iu
her tender melodious voice, and he
never got ovor it; but I should not
have saddened you by such miserable
details," and her eyes dwolt pityingly
ou my crape dross; "there is no need
to nsk if you, too, havu known
trouble."
At my low-toned explanation she
held out her hand with an expression
of frank sympathy in her dark eyes.
"How sad, how very sad, and you
so young, too; but, Miss Mortimer,
when wo settle down in the early autumn, as I trust wo shall, we must be
good friends with our Sunnyside neighbors; wo are no recluses, Eleanor and
I."
"Shall you not bo home before tho
autumn?"
"Not if Eleanor carries out her
plan of spending the summer among
tho Pyrenees, and I shall think myself happy, if sho permit b us lo be
settled then. You look surprised, but
my Bister- haa no such love for hor
English home ns I. At least not till
lately, when she herself proposed wo
should give up our wandering life and
lire again among our own peoplo.
You seo she is an artist, nud loves
Italy's blue skies nnd sunny plains;
sho dolights in change, variety uf objects, nnd uncertain excitement. I
fear it will bo long before alio nettles
down happily in this quiet, tranquil
home,"
Sho is your younger sister ?"
Yes; thoro nro six years' differonce
between us  It is right that she should
bo gay and Igravo."
"You love hor dearly I" I asked, for
there was a rapt enthusiasm in tho
tono in which she uttered hor name.
Lovo Eleanor!   There, I forgot; I
