Th3 Missing Signet.
(Continued from lust week.)
Mr. Hydenseke had often had occasion to consult hiin, and knew him
intimately. He walked into his shop
on this particular afternoon and found
Pinkerton. shabbily dressed, as usual,
iu carpet slippers, loose shiny trousers,
and a sleeved wais'.cuat, dividing bis
energies between taking snuff uud
dusting Chippendale.
"How are you, Pinkerton?" said
our friend shaking hands with the
dealer, "give me five minutes private
talk."
" Come in, come in," said the other,
leading the way into his back parlour,
and culling for an assistant to mind
Ihe shop. "Now then, what is it,
Mr. Hydenseke?"
"You know the Vespasian signet at
the British Museum I suppose?"
"Rather," answered Pinkerton, taking a huge pinch of snuff and chuckling palpably at, being asked such a
���question.
"How many are there like it in
existence?"
"Only one other; that is in the
Duke of X 's collection ut. B ."
"Sol thought. But I have been
informed to-day, Mr. Pinkerton, thai
there was a third specimen, which was
stolen from the Vatican iu that great
jewel robbery fifteen years ago."
" I don't believe it." suid the dealer,
decidedly. "The principal gems missing were all mentioned - in fact, a
list of them was printed and circulated
by Ihe police among all the chief dealers iu Europe. I had one sent here, I
recollect; uud I am quite certain that
a Vespasian signet ���which would
have l-eeii lhe most precious of the
whole lot ���was not included."
" You have not that list still, ^suppose?"   Mr. Pinkerton shook his head.
" I am afraid not," he replied. "But
I know the names it contained nearly
lis well as if I had ; and I can swear,
quite positively that uo Vespasian
signet was mentioned."
"Thank you-that is all I want,"
said Mr. Hydenseke.
On leaving Piukerton's emporium,
our friend hailed a cub, droie to his
private house, where he kept the
vehicle waiting while he packed a
Gladstone bug, and then ordered the
driver to take him, witli all speed, ,o
Paddiiigtou. He was iu time for the
afternoon   down   mail, by   which   he
proceeded   to   B ,   reaching   that.
quaint country town ut ubout five
o'clock.      Having   ascertained   nl his
hotel, the X Anns, that the Duke
was in resideiico at the castle, he betook himself thither, with as little
delay as possible.
His Grace, for whom Mr. Hydenseke
hud more than once acted in confidential niatttrs, readily saw the detective
and gave him permission to inspect
his collection of rings, being himself
present during the process. The result
of this inspection, and of a long conversation with the Duke, was that an
urgent telegram was despatched to
Pinkerton. asking him to come down
to B  as early   as   possible   next
morning.
It was two days later, and Mr.
Hydenseke was stnnding before thu
fire in bis office, with bis bunds, in
true British fashion, behind ins coat
tails. A rather odd smilo, suggesting
triumph and self-satisfaction, tiickered
about the corners of bis mouth. He
had sent a messenger about an hour
previously to request Sir Jacob True-
love's attendance at the office as soon
as convenient, and he was now awaiting that gentleman's arrival.
By and by tho street bell rung and a
minute or two biter the Baronet was
ushered in.
"Good morning, Mr. Hydenseke,"
hu begun, with au eager, anxious look
un bis cunning face���"you have gut
the ring ! You told me in your note
you had got tbe ring!"
"Yes," rejoined Mr. Hydenseke,
pursing up his lips and speaking incisively, "I have got the ring."
"Then give it to me at once," cried
St Jacob, with strange excitement.
"Here - here" (pulling out. bis chequebook from his bieust-pookei), "I'll pay
you your thousand pounds ut once.
The ling, Mr. Hydenseke -give me llie
ring."
" Wait a minute, Sir Jacob," said
the detective, coldly, waring buck the
other's otiist retcheu hand. " I have a
word or two to say first. I always
deal square with those who are square
with me. I take up almost any case
fur those who pay me well, and I ci.rry
out my clients' wishes to the best of
my power. But I make one stipulation. My clients must be square with
me; and they must tell me the truth !"
" What do yon mean, Mr. Hydcnseke?" muttered Sir Jacob, beginning
to turn pale.
" It is nothing to me,'' the detective
went on, without heeding tbe iuterup-
tion,   "that you tried to steal that
ring f.-oin the Duke of X , or that
liiiding yourself forestalled, you laid u
plot to steal it from the man who
anticipated you. But it is a great
deal to me that, instead of telling me
the truth, you tried to delude me into
you service with a pack of silly falsehoods and a trumped-up story about a
third Vespasian signet, stolen from the
Vatican, which had never uud any
ex'stence, either there or elsewhere."
"I- I-don't understand you. Do
-do von realise whom you're talking
to?" stammered the Baronet, trembling
however, in every limb. "You must
be niiid Mr. Hydenseke."
"I huvo trucked out.the whole affair
from liist to last," continued tbe other.
" You hud better listen, and deny any
of my statements if you can. You in-
intended   taking   advantage   of   your
intimacy at B , ami of the Duke's
comparative antiquarian ignorance to
steal the Vespasian signet from his
collection, and to substitute a lorged
one in its place. You employed Jan-
shikeff to make you the necessary
imitation. Ho gained an inkling of
your plan, and, thinking the idea u
good one, made u second imitation for
his own use, and paying a visit to
B just one day Itefore you forestalled you in filching tbo real signet.
You went down i.ud duly effected your
theft, but when you came to examine
your spoil, you found it only a sham
tba*. you had got. Knowing that
Janshikoff had been there the day before (for Ihe Duke showed you somo
gems which Janshikuff luul brought
down for his inspection), you easily
g���cssed what hud hup-ieiied, uud being
determined to get the real ring from
that astute dealer-n thing which
your own skill could never havo
accomplished-you enlisted uiy services. Now, if you had told me tbe
truth, I would have done my best for i
you, even as matters stood. But us
you have seen fit to try to impose on
me, and to gain my help by false pretences, you must accept the consequences. The ring has been restored
to the Duke of  X , and is now ,
"It's a lie-the whole thing's a lie,"
persistsd Sir Jacob. But his looks
declared tlio guilt which his words
denied in vain.
"I have forced a full confession
from Janshikoff," Mr. Hydenseke suid,
in the face of which, and of other convincing evidence, your denial or admission is perfeotly immaterial. Now.
Sir Jacob, you bail better pay me my
thousand pounds, and let the nfftiii- be
closed I"
" What?" tht Baronet almost shrieked, "pay you a thousand pounds. I'll
see you iu limbo first."
"Those are my terms," said Mr.
Hydenseke, quietly ; you may accept
litem, or you mny decline them and
accept the consequences I"
"It is scandalous." protested Sir
Jacob furiously. "I'll not submit to
be blackmailed in this infernal manner."
'��� Look here," Sir Jacob, said tbe
detective, with his sternest and most
determined air, "yon have tried to
fool me unu you must pay for it.
Whether in money or in exposure, decide yourself."
The Baronet raved, swore, protested,
pleaded, was abject, insolent, pathetic,
hectoring, but to no purpose. Mr.
Hydenseke remained unmoved by nil
these demonstrations, and they ended
(us our wiley friend foresaw they
would) in Sir Jacob drawing the required cheque.
When tbe latter bad taken bis departure- in a perfect storm of impotent
oaths and curses - Mr.   Hydenseke sut
down at his wr.tiug table, and, with a
very  comfortable smile, worked out u
short addition  sum upon  bis blotting
pad.
Tin sum was this- ���

Hit   Bll-IT^U.IY.
With this iitiinlier the GOMIBN   Elt.l
enters upon' its fourth ydur, u dogree
of antiquity which may perhaps justify a short  retrospect of tlio past even
if it should  baldly bo belt! to qualify
us for a prophetic   insight   into   tbo
fntiiri.: though  indeed  in I be pit-sent
stage of aff.iii'S in  tbis town and district, it tloes  not, vivptire a very  daring
prophet to read iu the unopened page a
hopeful   augury.     Those   oT   us who
have opportunities  to observe tlie condition of  other towns, anu cities in
British   Columbia   and   the  Western
Sta'cs, ami  to stun  up generally the
position of  affairs  in   this country at
large, never  return to Golden without
being struck  at tbo solidity   and progress of onr town  at a time when uui
versa) depression  and   stringency are
bewailed   in cities great and small, in
districts     iigi-ic'iluiral.  pastoral    and
mineral, on every side.      Iu  tbe Inst
twelvemonths the growth of   Golden
has been greater   than  in any   other
throe years  uf   her   history, and the
volume of business has kept pace with
increase ol the town.    The fact is that
the   geographical   position of   Golden
makes   it,  the natural   key to Eastern
British   Columbia, being not only the
immediate centre ol a district rich in
both agricultural uud mineral productions but, from its scit at tin: junction
of  thu  C.P ll. with   the  navigation
system   of   the Kootenay   valley, the
gateway to one ut tho most splendidly
endowed  districts ou  this continent.
When this universal epidemic of depression whicli is paralysing enterprise
ut present shall iu its turn yield to thu
laws of   change and  give   place  to a
renewal of   couli deuce and release I be
world from its present financial torpor,
then it is  reasonable to conclude that
those places which  have been able to
grow and thrive throughout the worst
of  the bad times, will  lead the van ol
progress and prosperity inaugurating
the new era.
With silver at about fiO cents and
lead und copper round about the.lowest
points on record, wc might expect to
liud u district which is remarkable (or
its richness in those minerals', literally
at its last gasp to support existence.
Instead of this wo Iiml in Golden
handsome houses and nourishing
stores going up without intermission :
because, fortunately, uur resources aro
not limited, as is tho rase with so
ninny mineral districts, tn the product
of our mines. Hundreds of miles away
ranches and camps and villages aro
drawing their supplies from Golden
and shipping hero their produce ol ull
sorls. During tint present year wo
have seen the town of Foil Steele connected with Golden by a practically
undivided lino of navigation, nu
achievement which ifpresents an In-
calculabe increase to tbo convenience
end advantages of all Knst Kootenay
and for which we are indebted to the
enterprise nnd energy of those trusted
pioneers of our district, the Upper
Columbia Navigation and Tramway,
Co. The vast lumbering -business
which has made Golden a headquarters
in this line, hns  during tho past year
i whicli is so generally noticed by visit
ors to Golden- the public   spirit   and'
enterprise nf her citizens.
St) Golden bus held lu r own through
Ibe bail times, and thoso who know
nut'tliing of lho immense mineral
riches of iho country tributary to
Goldon which are lying uudevelo|iod
through ibis period of stagnation in
mining mailers, can only faintly guess
at the change whicli will pass over tbo
state of Gol.lei) whin 'ho mining revival entiles. The Smeller 's standing
oipiippod ill every detail ready to lako
adv. ntage of the lirst change of ore,
ami signs are point ing to a dato nut

hope.
Meanwhile, woof tbo Eua have to
return thanks to our friends and readers fur such layout's us we have received. We, loo, look forward to ti liniii
when our columns map keep pace in
