With the Duke in
Life In the Boyal Train
By H. Hamilton Fyfe, iu tbs London
Dally Mail
lu the hot uii. inu,in sunshine we jug
comfortably across the prairie yellow
with ripe corn. We have time tu notice
which arc tlie best crops; to exchange
a wave of the liuml with the farmers'
men cutting swathes with four -horsed
"reapers" to eujoy the effect of Ihe
plain slri'tihiiig to either huri/ou iu
mli, unbroken fertility.
There is a farm huuse uear the line.
A little gruup stands aiuung tiic shucks
of wheat, lbe women fluttering their
handkerchiefs, the men waving their
hats. Tbey know that uurs is no ordinary train. They know that il carries royalty. The Duke of Connaught,
(lovernor (lenerai of the Ureal Dominion, is making his firsl .iiii. ml (rip tu
the west. Tbis train is his travelling
mini.' for montbi at a lime. It is the
Iinme, too, of tbe Duchess sud of Prist
cess I'atricia, uf the Duke's stall, ami
of uniiu mure, in these ten cars'Irs
iei seventy-five souls.

i'euplc wlm have ouly travelled iu
(ireat Uni si n nr Ihe nearer continent
can form uo idea uf what it means
live in a train. Tbey tblak of our
craiupcil lillle carriages, wbicb are all
very well fur journeys of-a few hours
These lufty palace ers, with their sni
pie space, Iheir lightness and airiness,
Ibeir square dining-rooms and sinuk
ing rooms aud libraries, would siuau

in Ibe daytime It is a capital lillle
Study, I bsve my books ou shelves,
plenty of room, no risk of stuffiness,
with my domed fuuf fifteen feet high
At nigbl tbe table dissppesrs. From
one settee to tbe otber stretches my
bed, wide sud dowuy, in whlcb I sleep
soundly and reelfully tbe nigbt long,
heedless'of shoutings, bearing tbe clang
of passing Iruiu bells only lu hsppy
dreams. A flsp comes dowu .nd re
cals dainty wassisf arrangements.

a traveller could desire.

behind Ibe plusasuteil impression nf
cordlsllty und charm. Another stroll
hu  usually takes  about  ten  o'clock
St Ilight before turning in.   Hit Hoyul
Highness uever misses su opportunity
uf stretching bis legs ur uf tslkiug to
Canadians of any and evsry class.
Tbs Duke sni tbs Oaugsrs
Sometimes tbese encounters lend to
smusing incidents. Tbe other dsy the
Duke sddressed s couple uf youug men
soling ss gangers in a railway coustructiou party. They were leaning against
a (ruck, and did uut move or stop chew
ing gum. They bad uu idea whutn thuy
were talking to. One said be came
frum (llasguw. ''Are you from Scot
laud toot" tba, Duke inquired uf thu
olher. "Nn, I'm a Cauuek" (slangfor
Canadian), he replied with a grin. I'm
ally tbey began tu ask thc Duke questions, "tilling fart" "Yes," said bis
liuvul Higbiiess, "as far as Ihc ecus!."
"Ah," said H.niiv, "I'd be glad tu be
. ue,, wi' ye."
Wheu the Duko is recognised the cuu
versatiuu is uot quite su free ami easy.
There is uncertainty, as s rule, as to
how royalty should be addressed. One
farmer a few mornings sgu cslled his
Itu ml Highness quite correctly "Uir,"
but feeliug tbia to be inadequate, fol
luwed it up witb "your ilouuur." Now
and then tbere is uncertainty ss tu
which is tbe (lovernor General. At

Hir im inn.i Mcllride presented tbe
necessity for a naval defensive force
for lbe Canadiun I'aeilie coast, in wbst
may be termed a new light, when iu bis
address'at the recent Conservative convention at lievolstoke, he placed his
argument upon the commercial basis,
contending that in liritish Coluuibiu
wo have one of nature's great uudimin
isbed treasure chests lhat we have been
sounding that fad alumni so Ibat all
tbe wurld is aware uf Ihe fact and that,
sueh being the case, ordinary business
prudence required thai adequate measures should bo provided for tjic pro
i i ium .,i that treasuro should tbe oc
■ .1 mn arise.   -
Tbe esuct words uf the premier us
reported, were us follows:
'"I suy It advisedly, but I say it
nevertheless, we aru living in what 1
wuuld term a fool's paradise." Does
it ever occur lo you that the treasure
whieb is ut stake in the vast rummer-
cial operations iu this pruviuce is a
sacred trust with os."
"Do you think of bow little pro
lection you ure giving tbese industrial
projects, not eveu the prutectiun which
the ordinary pulicemau gives tu his
ruundf The resources uf this provjuce
ure ilimitabie und we have tuld the
world so. ll may be tbat there are
those who are envious of tbis natural
wealth. Across thc broad i'acihe arc
wuuderful peoples and perhaps iu an
other ilei-uilc the furces of Chins and
-lupun inuy be marshalled together iu
u i..i.al aud military armament tu
threaten our possessions iu this pan of
tho globe. Did wc permit our wealtii
to go unprotected i nlhis way we would
nut deserve tn enjuy it. If I can not
appeal ou national grounds, I can surely
speak to yuu uu a commercial lia<ji»
Let us insure uur proporty. Lot us
shortly be utile to lay claim to a regular ' ii i.n l i.i ij army and Canadian navy,
second tu none in the world.''
This is u new basis of appeal, inas
much u{i it hus been customary to base
ily argument fur a Canadian defensive
force upun patriotic aud imperial
grounds, to lire exclusion of the matter
of fact bosiness aspect of tbe subject.
Ths urgumeut is une thai will appeal
to the practical loiiiiuiin sense uf the
public.   No  matter  how   inv.   abiding
a a people may lie, as such, society has no
where reached that' elevated state in
which il is considered wise lo dispense
wilh reasonable provisions for tbe pru-l wealth,
tcetiun uf life and pruperty from the
lawless. A well organi/ed uud discip
lined police force is considered essen
liul in every well regulated community
tor the protection of law abiding cili
.ens frum thc depredations of iudivi
duuls who-may he criminully inclined.
Inasmuch us human nature remains the
..uine, whether considered individually
or collectively, il is logical to conclude
Ihut there may be among the uatiuns
uuin i.iiiul instances iu which covetous
eyes will be cast upou the jiussessiuus
uf uthers. In such instances ,there is
no doubl lliut the k uuwn existence uf
u   strung
It Is highly gratifying tu knuw tiist
arrangements are at last under way
which wil| result in thc placing of
Canadian aud Caucasian dsherineii iu
possession of the Canadian fisheries of
the i'aeilie Coast.
The conditions which have obtained
in Ihis regard for some years past,
under which Ihe dshing bas practically
ull been iu the bauds of Orientuls, have
called imiii many ami vigorous protests both upon economic and upon ua

—Nursery Bbynie.
One morning iu tbe month of February, 1860, tbore appeared iu a Vic
toria paper's sdvertielng columns a
notice which rau tbUBt
" Al tho Ni.i::mu of Mr. Jobn Colber
a writ wae yeiterday ieeuei) from the
Supremo Court agalnit Or. Hulfour of
this city. The writ sllegee slander on
tho psrt of the defendant and the
damages asked aro heavy,"
Tbe appearance of the advertisement
set all tongues wagging. Kvery mao
and woman, and for the matter of that,
every child who was obi enough to understand what a suit at law meant,
was anxious to know just what it was
all about. Collier was a sturdy Scotch
Writer to the Kigne! (wbicb, I believe,
means the sanle us barrister here) oi
about forty years ami bad a wnu some
ten years lus senior. When asked for
un explanation he shook hia need, and
said, "Oo and ask the doctor—be
knows.". Tbe doctor, when appealed
to, professed ignorance of having giveu
cause for llio action ami appeared to
be as much puuled as the community
in general, in tbe burning desire for
n.i,iiiiiiiiiuii Mrs. Collier wus ashed.
She was a little Knglisbwoiuan, of
quick,, nervous m liun, black snappy
eyes, and a tougue^ae old Willis lloml,
the famed colored orator, who once
mine under its lash, expressed It—
"dat ruts Imi ways, like a knife.''
Mr. and Mrs. Collier had arrived al
Victoria by ship from Australia iu
186!). Tbey bad some money ami liuill
themselves a small shock which an
swcreil the dooblc purpose of a la»
oflice and reaidence. Mrs, Collier immediately began to assert herself as
a social leader. She gave little inn
(then quite an innovation—end tea
was uot tbe ouly beverage served)
which the "best" people attended,
and at one of which it was decided to
form a sort of social guild for the pur
pose of ascertaining who was who—
dividing the sheep from tbe goats,
weeding the society list so to speak-
and admitting only those whose records
were unimpeachable lo lbe circle, li
was felt tbat in thc hurry and bustle
of slrangers arriving aud settling here
some very undesirable persons had iuc
■-ceded in imposing themaelves unon
society and were carrying their beads
high, when, were Ibe truth known, Iney
should bung tbem very low. About
Ihis time a ball was arranged to be
held at the Hudson's Bay Company's
warehouse. It was used for the storage
of salmon iu barrels pending the au
nual sailing of a company's packet
for Loudon. When the ball was ar
ranged the packet "Princess Boyal"
bad takeu all thc salmon on board and
thc warehouse wae empty. After lib
eral application* of soft soap and walei
to destroy thc ancient and lisblikc smell
that bung about the place, aud llic
drapiug about thc walls of sails and
liags from llic ships, the room was made
presentable and a goodly number of
invitationa were sent out. There were
Tew ladies tbeu resident iu Victoria,
families were scarce, and a child of
tender years was regarded as a "rsra
avis." Now il happened tbat to tin
social club of which our friend, Mrs.
John Colber, was the self elected lead
er was assigned the task of ■fleeting
the ladies wbo should be invited to at
lend the ball. The pml.i met and ap
pointed a secretary to whom was giveu
the duty of writing the invitations,
and au executive committee to check
the liat was also appointed. In due
course the cards were issued, and to
the surprise of mauy tbe names, of Mr.
and Mrs, Jobn Collier were uot among
the elect. A day passed, two, three
days, and still uo cards for Ihe Colbcrr.
Tben arm in arm (which waa lbc way
married and engaged persons walked
at tbat time) tbe Colbert proceeded lo
investigate. They were very wroth and
the sharp tougue of thc lady rut "bof
ways." The unfortunate secretary was
the first object of the slighted woman 'i
wrath, and after much persuasion and
mauy threat* Ihc secretary explained
thst she had been iuetructed by the
committee not to issue any invitation
to Mr. aud Mri. ('olber. To the presi
dcut of lbc committee the pair next
proceeded, aad in tbat lady tbey encountered s foi'woinan wbo was worthy
of the visiting lady's tongue. The word
battle muit bsve beeu interesting. It
wus said tbat Mrs. Colber, like thr
AHherwoman whom Iluu Council van
,|iiii'liiul in the Dublin market, got the
wont of the rombst, for she left Ihe
place supported by her husband, aud
in an byiterirsl condition.
Thc outcome of the visit wsa tke
issue of s writ tot heavy damages, as
I bsve explained, against tbe husliand
of the president of the executive of
ths Boris! Guild. Wbat provoked the
action I nsvsr knew positively; bot it
m reported that a gentleman from

Now to say that s persou has hsd S

The imll csme oil ami proved very
ni" '■■■ ■•' "I. Tbere were Indies, presept,
but tbe gentlemen outnumbered tbem
in Hie rstiu of iii to one. The moment
a lady entered the dinning apartment
sbe wss pounced upon, so to ipeuk, and
ber "card," which was written upnn
a half sheet uf note paper, wss filled
iiliiinni at ouce. A young American who
accompanied me to the ball got one
dance the whole evening, and i fared
little better, tho naval oftlroru bearing
olf all lhc honors. The costumes were
ridi and varied. Of course, the enormous .nn,ilmu was much in evidence,
and iu sympathy with hoops the gentle
men wore baggy trousers, wide from
the ln|'i. to the ankles, where they sud
denly narrowed and were drawn closely
in. There was about as much lit in
trousers tbcu as there is ,,i pajamas
now. Looking back, 1 can recall noth
ing so grotesque as the male ami female
costumes of that day—and yet we
iliuiiglit tbcm graceful ami fetching ami
altogether lovely! "What fools'wo
mortals be" lo allow ourselves to be
dragged lo such ridiculous ends by
tbe dictates of Dame Fashion.
The supper was all that could be desired. I remember that Governor Douglas, Captain James llcid and other
heads of families, wilh their lovely
youug daughters, were preseut, snd
ilmi lhe Governor ami olber geullcmeu
made very pretty speeches, iu which
they referred to thc compauy iu a
pleasant manner. Admiral llaynes,
tben in command of tbe station, ami
his staff were also preseut, aud be, too,
made some appropriate remarks—tbe
San .luan "war" having just been
settled everybody was feeling bappy.
The affair passed off pleasantly and
Ibe cocks were crowing their welcome
to the rising suu before the company
"Do you intend to push llic case
agaiusl the doctor I" I asked Collier
ono morning.
"Jet,'' he exclaimed with empbssli
"to the .bitter cud—to the death, if
"Won't you accept au apology!" I
"No," chimed iu bis wife, and ber
eyes snapped wilh excitement. "Never
- never!   Jf be lay dying ami asked
me to forgive bim I never would."
Wilbiu two weeks from the date of
that conversation I'r. Balfour was dead
His death was cncompasscil in Ibis
way It seemed that be worried much
over Ibe action and saw uo way oul
of the suil except by flight. A little
Chilean brig called the "Floreuciu"
wus loading for Chile, tin tbis brig
Ilr Hutfoor, lo escape the actlou, ae
cretly took passage. Off Cape Flattery
the lirig encountered a fearful gale
and weut over uu ber beam ends.
Among those wbo wore swept off and
never seen more was poor Ilr. lialfour.
He nas truly followed to llic bitter cud
- to death.
'flic passing of lir. Balfour gave
quite a shock to tbe little colony, for
tbe deceased was well liked, ami the
social position of llie Colliers was
rather lowered than heightened by it.
Shortly sfter the sad event the couple
became involved iu a bitter warfare
willi W. 11. Smith, owner of a brick
building on Goveruuieul itreet. The
Smith lot extended to the Iiuc of ('olber'i lot on Ungley street. The latter
always insisted tbat the Smith fence
em nm, hei three or four iuches ou
Iheir lot, and the wordy wan were
many and numerous. Tbe active spirit
in tbe Smith establishment was a youug
clerk named Hicks. After tbe exchange
of uiiuiii"iii- lin) epistles Mrs. Colber
1-owbided Hicks ou Vales ilrccl and
wai lind 1/6. Neil Hicks and Colber
met aud Hicks pulled bit autagouist's
nose, fer wbicb luxury be paid i; Then
Colber priutrd a card iu wbicb be re
ferred to Hicks as a man wbo had
been publicly cowbided. Hicki retort
cd witb a letter iu wbicb be referred
to Collier's nose as having been 'weak
«d on tbe Street. In the abienre of a
theatre tht controversy created the
keenest amusement to fbe residents, and
while one party would pst Hicks on thc
back and advise bim tn keep it 'up, auotber, lection would Ull thc Colbert to
give it te Hick". Ou one occasion
Hicks found a dead cal iu Smith's
bsrk-yard. Naturally luppoiiug tbat
bis .-muni bad thrown it tbere, he burl
ed it over the fence into Colber's yard.
Now it chanced that Ihc little womau
with Iho fiery temper and snappy eyes
waa engaged witb a hope line aod an
Indian boy in nuwauring the ground to
find how many inchci of lsnd had been
tsksn possssslon of by Smith, snd the
her to imagine thtt s wild animal' hsd
leupinl uppp spd wsa ubuut to devour
ber. Loud screams brought the husband to the ipot, and sfter ha hsd
soothed his wilt he seised ths dead cat
by the tsil snd darted round the corner
to Smith's itore. Hicks wsa standing
lu t|io doorway Ho wsa a bit of u
dandy aud very vain. As Cullier, carrying tbs est nppruiic liml, Hicks I ried
to escape, liiil he wss overtaken, ami
Colber nearly woro tbo animal nut nu
the heed smi shoulders uf bis sueniy.
Tiie town wont wild with delight. They
bsd v.niched Hie 'inuii between lbe two
forces for sonic weeks. Tbe comic able
uf a controversy always appeals most
strongly to Hie popular mind, so the
funny incident of tlte cat and ihe use
that wss made uf it took thu public
by hi inin. Nothing elso wai tulkud of
for muny duys uml tbo "To,I. bim,
boyi" luetics were continued by flic
friends .of both.
The boom consui|Uent on tbo discovery of gold in Cariboo struck Victoria
in I'uii". The buildings were of inaulli
ciciit capacity to accoinmoilute one
tenth of Ihe people who eume to Vic
toria tu make tbis the slarliug point
for ih.oi long journey to tbe mines
llu n.i i u.l. of Inr newcomers pitched
ii ne on no .mi lots, uml the streets
were crowded with people from every
part of the world. Goods were in such
.Ionian.I that the steamers from San
Francisco could not carry une half the
freight thut offered. Heal estate in
Victoria rose rapidly iu value, and
nearly everyone became a speculator
Thc Colliers bought Iwo lots on l'au
dora avenue uml sold one of the live
immediately afterward for a sum ei|uui
to that which tbey had paid for both,

Amongst the town councillors elected
was John Colber, who, iu spite of bis
unpopolarity, received lbc blghosl
uumber of votes sud coniei|Ueutly be
. inn.■ senior councillor. Tbe Prince of
Wales (later King Kdward) attained
Ins majority on the llth of November,
1862, and a public holiday was pro
claimed here. A procession was form
ed, and beaded by a baud marched
through the streets, lu the afternoon
there were races at Beacon Hill 1'ark,
and in the evening au illumination of
the public buildings, tbe mayor's und
several other privute residences. For
the evening u banquet bad been urrang
cd al the Lyceum. About Iwo Iiundred
guests appeared ul Ihe tabic, ovet
which Mayor Hams presided. On bis
right was Sir .lames Douglas I the
Ooveruor), Capl. ftichunls (afterwards
Admiral), of II.M.S. Hecate; dpi.

I'hief Justice Cameron. Ou bis left
the Lord Bishop of Columbia, Kt. Bev.
Hisbop Demon, M Monc, French Con

Consul, Colonial Secretary Youug, and
Attorney General dry. lu the gallery
were a uumber of ladies who had as
lembled to "sec tbe lions feed," aud
who were served witli wine uud sweets.
Full justice was dune to the excellent
menu provided, and Ihe usual pal riot ic
toasts were drunk witb enthusiasm
Tbeu followed a uumber of toasts oi
a local character aud all went pleasant
ly. There was not Ihe slightest reason
to suspect that a storm cloud burked in
tbe air-that lhe peaceful scene, al
most pastorul iu its serenity and calm
uess, was soon to be changed into a
roaring, seething maelstrom of disorder
and confusion where men would lose
their heads ami sbout ami strike oul
wildly, and fair women's screams would
add lo the din. Yet so it was. Thr
red rag of the occasion was u loasl to
"The Mayor and Oily Couucil." The
Attorney General hiving propoied it,
the Mayor responded for bis office in
a pretty little speech  which wus ap
himself forestalled. There was "another Kii'hmoiiil" already on his feet
who bad begun a r»ldy- Tlte usurper
was Jolin Colber.
"Mr. Mayor," he began, ''SS senior
councillor tbe duty devolves on me tn
reply to tbe toaat of tho oity eouueil."
"You are out of ordor, Councillor
Colbor," aaid tlio mayor.
"Oh, no, I'm just in ordsr as senlnr'
"But you aro not down fpr tbis
toast. Councillor McKay is, and I
cau only hear liim."
" i teg ii inn your pn iniiin, Mr. Msyor,"
replied lbc senior councillor, whilo s
sweet smile aWOpt over lli« broad lin-e.'
'.'Tiic duty devolves ou mu tu answer,
aud I'll not ihirk my duty, n is a
source of great gratification "
Cries of "Order," "Order," "Sit
down," "Chair," arose. The glasses,
danced ami jingled iu response to vociferous thumping nn thc table ami the
fireworks begun. Tbo iibW wsa deaf
■ "in,", but high above the diii coulil be
beurd the lempesluiius voice of sturdy
.lohn Collier as he repeal od over and
ovor again the words, "Mr. Mayor,

the shrill supruuo of an excited female
rout thc disturbed uir us il culled out,
"i'i,in,l yonr ground, Jolin. Don't be

in tbe direction whence the feiuule

u very pule face und annppy black eyes
leaning ball' over the fruut of the gallery and swinging her urins franticully
as sbe called to ber lm- .mml at the

John Collier.
On lhe lloor of the hull the disturb

One man, a little fclluw namcf llriggs,
