The contract for the construction of
the Provincial Government vaults in tho
law courts has been awarded to Messrs.
Ptirdy & Williams, contractors of this
city. The cost will be about $1,500.
The material to be used will be stone,
brick and B. C. slate. Tho vault as
shown on the plan will rather add to
than detract from the architectural
boautles of the structure. Tho new
tower will be of an octagonal form, giving a spaco of about 11 feet between tho
angles Inside. It will be two stories
high and the walls of tho same thickness
as those of tho main structure with entrance from tho registrar's offices and
from those of the Provincial Government agont. Work on the building will
be commenced right away and finlshod
as soon as possible.
The Hoard ol Directors of Columbian
Methodist College held thier annual
meeting in Westminster on Wednesday
last. There was a good attendance, and
the reports of the progress of tho institution were very satisfactory. Great
interest was manifested In the Important business of selecting a permanent sito for tho college buildings.
Offers of free sites were received from
Victoria, Vancouver, Chilliwack, Burua-
by and Westminster. On the result of
the fifth ballot, by a vote of 15 to 10, the
decision went In favor of Westminster.
Principal Whittiugton said it is hoped
that the collego may be able to occupy
at least a portion of Its own building by
the beginning of the next collegiate
I year, and to that end the Hoard of Managers was instructed to perfect plans
j for the building, and for the securing of
| an endowment, with all convenient
speed. Already very valuable promises
of assistance toward the building have
been received, both from within and!
without the Province.
The "New llaby" is still providing
mental exercise for his big brother,
whether In the way of real anxiety or
mere idle curiosity it is difficult to say.
In Saturday's Columbian, after divers
shrewd and penetrating remarks bearing
on the subject, it is suggested that the
baby leads "a weekly existence," a venerable witicism that at once captivated
the "Baby," who, precocious Infant as I
he Is. promptly recognized it as a true j
specimen of antiquity. The deft use of
the Italics is unmistakable evidence of
tho genuineness of the ancient relic, and j
the "llaby," endowed by Nature with a
love for the antique, loses his critical In-
olnatlons, in a sense of overwhelming admiration.
At a special   meeting of the  School
Hoard  on  Saturday afternoon,   held to
discuss the advlsabilty of  closing   the:

was decided, on  the representation of;

Dr. Hoggs, that there was no need to re-
sort to that measure.   There aru only
three cases In the city.    Tho Hoard de- ;

New York, Oct. 4.���The World's Buenos Ayres cable savs: ������Admiral .Mello
has declared the ports of Rio do Janeiro
and Santos blockaded. It is said that
his object Is to force tho surrender of
Rio by crippling tbo trade of the city.
As a consoquenco of the blockade trade
is paralyzed. The banks are closed and |
business mon are frantic. They are
urging the government to mako a supreme effort to capture Admiral Mello's
war ships, promising to furnish all the
money required. With the view of attacking the rebels on the seas tho Government, it is said, has begun negotiations for the purchase of a fleet of war
ships. Experience has demonstrated
tho fact that It Is useless to fight at long
pears almost level, though in fact sloping gently to tho south, and shows on
the surface a black, clayey loam soli,
apparently of considerable depth, and
great fertility. It was in short a Manitoba prairie on a small scale, and honco
the familiar appearance to an old resident of the Northwest. Tho well constructed buildings consisted of a neat
and tasty liouso of moderate size, occupied by tlie manager and his family,
and within convenient distance a largo,
roomy barn, horso and cattle stables,
granary and several other outbuildings
of various utility. Mr. Palmer was temporarily absent, and until his return tho
newspaper man found good entertainment in looking over the grounds.
Thero was a line garden, containing a
splendid growth of all the usual vegetables. Further on was a large piece of
ground containing long rows of clean,
thrifty looking fruit trees, somo just in
bearing, some approaching that stage,
and others showing the growth of but
one season. Between tho rows, running
north and south, the available land was
occupied with potatoes, strawberries,
raspberries, currants, gooseberries, etc.,
all thoroughly cultivated and clean and
tidy as an amateur's garden In the early
days of spring. The arrangement appeared admirable, and tbe whole bore
token to a tasty and experienced head
and constant, painstaking otfort.
Presently Mr. Palmer put in an appearance, and, though busily engaged
in harvesting operations, readily found
timo to Join In a cruise of tho premises,
while at the same time imparting tho Information which follows.

SI7,0(10. It was thon a plain, ordinary
farm, but noted for its rich, blank soil
of one to s'ix feet in depth. Mr. Palmer
was appointed manager with full control, and by assiduous application, often
under great disadvantages, had laid the
foundation of what is intended to be a
great British Columbia fruit farm.
There aro 240 acres of cleared land, but a
small portion of which has yot boon sot
out to fruit, though the stage now
reached insures rapid progress in the
future. This year (it) acres were devoted to hay, which yielded 2% tons to
the acre. Forty acres wore sowed to
oats, from which a fine crop was being
harvested in good condition. Twenty
acres of peas turned out only fairly,
while potatoes, to tbo extent of 20 acres,
had proved a bountiful crop of extra
lino quality. Onions, mangolds, etc.,
were also grown in quantity and the returns wero highly satisfactory. Hops
bad been tested in small quantity, and it
was intended to devote a considerable
area lo this plant early in tlie future.
The number of fruit troes set, out is us
follows: o.boo Italian prunes. 1,000
French and sliver prunes, 1.500 peais of
early, late and winter varieties. 200 crab
apples, loo standard apples, Km standard plums, loo Japanese plums, Km
cherries, lo experimental peach trots of
early varieties.
In small fruit, but a beginning lias

1,500 currents, 500 blackberries, 300
raspberries, and several long rows of
strawberries. For planting next spring,
the following, all in thrifty condition,
wore pointed out: 15,000 prunes and
plums, 2,000 pears, 0,000 apples, 15,000
rod and black currents, 5,000 gooseberries, 3,000 raspberries, und sufficient

Killing a  Whale.
Tuesday's News-Advertiser.
Tho steamer Sunbury. on Sunday
morning, towed in an Immense whale,
killed by Mr. S. Fader and party, after
almost a week of exciting adventures.
The party consisted of Mr. Fader, Capt.
Wisterland, of tho C. D. Rand, and
Messrs. Turner and Hunter, and their
accoutrement consisted of a whaleboat,
a largo gun to shoot harpoons, and bomb
shots, hand lances, and a largo quantity
of lino. Thoy left Tuesday morning
early, and by 9:30, when opposite llowo
Sound, shot the victim, a female whale,
which gave them a lively timo. Tho harpoon projectile entered tho animal to tho
hilt, a depth of about four feot. The recoil upset the large gun and tore away
the mounting. Immediately when it was
shot from the steamer Sunbury tho lino
was passed to the whaleboat and tho
four got In.
The whalo immediately started off toward the mouth of tho Fraser, with tho
boat and party in tow, going so fast that
scarcely the gunwale could be seen abovo
water. From the river she made toward
Plumper's Pass, and turning, started towards Nanainio. Night came on and a
number moro harpoons wore stuck In tho
struggling animal, each attached to a
barrel to impede its progress, and mark
its position. The whaleboat was still left
attached to tho animal, and the party
taken aboard the steamer. A lantern
was set up in the boat to mark the course
'���"'-'"J',, """" -'"'Jn kept her i~"�� toward Comox, and then turned, and by
Wednesday morning was off Lasquoti
Island. Sh�� could have been killed with
bomb shoti.; ���ut Mr. Fader wanted tho
carcase to bo as little torn as possible,
and with this object in view tho party
restricted themselves to tho use of harpoons. They got Into tho boat at Lasquoti Island, and commenoed to worry
tho monster to death. Throo more harpoons, attached to barrels, were driven into her.and when opportunity offered hand
lances wore thrust in with all the force
two men could muster. Tho bombs
wore taken off several projectiles and
the other parts fired into tlie animal.
They would draw the boat up by tho
lino till directly over the animal, thrust
in tho lances, and as the largo beast
sank would let go the lino to avoid being
hauled down.
The whale started off among tho
rocks surrounding Lasquoti Island and
several times the boat was almost
dashed to pieces. After two hours light-
I ing the whalo mado out into tho gulf
trying to get away from her pursuers.
On ono occasion Capt. Wcsterland was
knocked from 'he boat by a stroke from
her tail but foil upon her back and a
secotd fling fortunately sent him back
toward tho boat where he was taken
aboard again scarcely wet. The whale
then mado for Texada Island and by
chance directly to the pine,- whore tho
steamer was lying. The tow line of tho
Steamer was attached to the harpoon,
but the whale started off on feeling tho
heavier weight, and though the engines
were reversed towed the steamer at
a rapid rate northward. Tho whalo
tried by a devious course through rocky
passes to got rid of the heavy load. Tho
Sunbury had more than ono narrow escape from wreck. The sport became so
dangerous at last that by nightfall tho
whaleboat was again attached with
throe mon in it. A light was kept burning as tho three mon wero hurried in the
direction of Comox. From that placo

Our neighbor, the Columbian, 'loos not
take kindly to the moderate reference to
the Kamloops Convention whicli appeared in the lastissueof the Canadian.
Indeed, any reference to tho groat Opposition meeting not couched In terms of
admiration lias n tendency to irritate
tlie"" most   Intensely  anti-Government
Canadian. They aro honestly hold, and
were moderately expressed. Indeed, a
number of Provincial journals, not usually classed with the '���servile sheets,"
rather Incline to the same view of the
matter as tho Canadian. Witness the
following from that good anti-Government papor, the Victoria Times:
'���Tho Winnipeg Free Press 'sizes up,
the secession movement In this Province
as follow: 'At this distance the agitation
to cleave British Columbia into two parts,
one the Island and the other the Mainland, seems to bo tho extreme of absurdity. It can scarcely be taken seriously, when tho chairman of a mooting,
convened to promote tho object, said that
he would put the motion iavoring it,
merely as a duty of tho position, and not
because lie had any sympathy with it.
In view of a general election, to bo held
soon, it may be good tactics to engage in
an agitation of that kind; but to men
who are not in the habit of losing their
heads, it must soom quite too serious a
matter to play with.' Tho Free Press is
right���the proposal is too serious for
men who have the welfare of tho Province at heart to trille with. But, as a
matter of fact, tho movement Is dead,
and thore is every probability that it
will be given a quiet and unostentatious
funeral by tho Kamloops Convention on
the loth of October."
Tho Mission News, discussing the ad
vlsability of introducing Dominion party
lines Into British Columbia politics, has
the following:
"There is nothing in common, nor in
sympathy between the members of tho
independent party. Thoy represent
views widely different. * * * Parties
aro generally formed by a number of individuals rallying around some principle
or principles witli whicli thoy are in sympathy. Tlie would-be division in this
Province is devoid of any such prinelp
journal of tho Province.   Tho old  saying that "all extremes aro error and tho j and further moro the independent party
truth lies between," would certainly not | is composed of men  holding extremely
apply to tho political  policy of tlie Co
luminal,. That vigorously edited papor,
if it may bo judged by its utterances,
has no tolerance for any opinion not in
exact harmony with its own. Those
papers that differ with it figure only as
"hireling shoots'" that obey "their mas-
tors' holiest." It would bo very easy to
turn that upon tho Columbian, for assuredly all the virtue and honesty of
ISritish Columbia has not concentrated
itself in the so-called Independent party,
lint the Columbian, we have no doubt, is
very sincere in its objections to the
present Provincial ministry, and is. we
aro sure, faithful to its party, notwithstanding a vory evident inclination to
push the political fortunes of an individual, a fact that docs not at all imply
a reward in prospect. It would bo a sad
matter if people who differ in opinion
could soe in each other only dishonest
and corrupt motives. The rule is, happily, much tho other way, and exceptions are Tory rare.
To come back, now, to the Convention, the Columbian, iii Its political Innocence, speaks of the proposed gathering
of Opposition delegates, n,< though such
a thing was a brand new and all-powerful invention that would certainly accomplish everything aimed at���a sanguines* of outlook that usually accompanies cheery boyhood. l!ut, of truth,
political conventions aro of long standing practice. Honestly conducted, thoy
are often of groat, Influence In organizing a public party, the more especially
if that party contains within Itself tho
elements of disintegration. It may, In
the case under consideration, even
though announced as pertaining to tho
"Constitutional League," etc., bo of
sonic service to tho Opposition, and we
hope it will, for there is need. The
wild move of the Independents (political
party lilies are usually misnomers) in
agitating for n division of the Province,
was a bad break, a calamity, that it
will take years for the party to recover
from. It utterly destroyed tho confidence
of good conservative people, and was
even too radical for ordinary radicals.
?,'e aro aware, of course, that in this
connection, our older brother, who
OURht to 'oe belter behaved, charges tlie
Caxadiax with a "rank, baseless falsehood"��� 0 way of putting it certainly
not lacking in force. As to tlie petition
for separation, it assuredly was circulated, for the present writer was asked
to put bis signature to sucfi a document,
No one will accuse the Ministerialists of
being party to it, and the orthodox Opposition repudiated it. Perhaps, like
Topsy, It "growed."
As to our suggestion that tho calling
of the Convention under tho colors of tho
"Constitutional League," was niislead-
and impolitic, the Columbian kindly supplies for our information the following
extract as "what gave rise to tho Constitutional League movement:"
" 'To discuss,' In the terms of tho call,
'the present position of political affairs
in the Province, to define tho policy to bo
adopled, and Hie best means of protecting in their Integrity tlie political rights
Of the people of Hie Mainland against
the reckless procedure of tho present
different views on the leading questions
of Government. To harmonize these dif-
fcionces is a hopeless task."
We referred formerly to the lack of interest manifested by tho people of Westminster and elsewhere, in the preliminary meetings called to chose delegates.
At a similar mooting in Vancouver there
appears to have boon a quality more
weakening Hum lack of interest, if we
may judgo by the following clipping
from the keen and plquent Hornet, a publication, by the way, that the Columbian
was wont to delight in.    Says the Hornet:
"It must be admitted that the meeting
hold on Saturday week, in Vancouver,
lo select delegates to the Kamloops Convention of the Independent party, was
not the conspicuous success which it
might have been. There wore elements
of disturbance, if not of positive disintegration, present, und there existence in
tlie party is a most undesirable thing, in
view of the absolute necessity, which undoubtedly confronts them, of presenting
a solid front to tbo enemy. Mr. Duval's
assault on .Mr. Cotton, however he may
have felt justified in making it, was undoubtedly an injudicious thing in the circumstances, and, although met in a very
dignified way by tlie gentleman assailed,
could not fail of having a very damaging
nffool   en   tho   puunc   lillllO.     liev. Mr.
Maxwell did a good deal to redeem the
credit of the assemblage, and Mr. Cotton's speech was undeniably a strong
one. But Mr. Magoo's declinature to act
as a delegate must havo had a terrible
effect. To be sure, as ho himself, witli
refreshing candor, admits, there should
bo no difficulty in getting a better man
to fill bis place. Of course not, George,
but think of tho compliment paid you
In tho selection of you when that "better
man" was available! Altogether we aro
disappointed that Vancouver could not
furnish bettor material from which to
select delegates than that which showed
up at that mooting, and it was a groat
pity that they should have begun by
spitting at each other like so many
Thomas cats on aback fence. It was a
worse give-away than the Premier's Suda
Crook telegram."
Well, the Caxadian hopes the Constitutional Leaguers will havo a good time
next Tuesday, and succeed in accomplishing something for tlie Opposition.

It was the pleasure of tho editor of this
paper to visit, a week or ten days ago,
what is probably one of tbe best kept
and most promising farms in tho Coast
District of British Columbia, and of whicli
report on first page gives details. Tho
rancbe is in tho Municipality of Surrev,
about midway between Hazel mere and
Blain and i9 Intersected on tbe eastern
side by tbe Great Northern Railway.
Tho proprietors are Messrs. W. J. and C.
D.Moggridge,who came into possossionof
it early last spring. The Messrs. Moggridge aro young mon, and their knowledge of farming is probably more theoretical than practical as yot, but thoy
aro possessed of ample means, sound
judgement, and ready enterprise, and
are just tho kind of settlors that are
needed to build British Columbia into a
groat and prosperous Province of tho
Dominion. The farm was formerly the
property of Dr. Powell, of Victoria, and
under the able management of Mr. 11.
M, Palmer, who still remains in charge
had already become a splendid property
beforo passing to its present owners. Under the new control, further oxtenrive im-
; provements have been, and are being,
made, and the plans for Hie future show
j a determination on the part of the pro-
. prletors not only to build up a profitable
estate, but to make [or themselves a
permanent home in this their  adopted
country. Mr. A. ,1. Moggridge spent
somo years in South America, and is
moro or loss acquainted with other portions of tho globo, so that his decision to
locate permanently in British Columbia
has greater significance than it otherwise would, and bears out a conviction
long hold by the writer that tho natural
conditions of our coast district are so
agreeable as to insure its ultimate settlement by a class of men who do not usual"
ly take to agricultural pursuits on this
continent. Well-to-do people will choose
to live horo bocauso the conditions of

Pioneer Recolections.
Prom Wednesday's Colonist.
One of British Columbia's pioneers,
and the inaugurator of tlie express service in this Province, is paying a short
visit to Victoria to renew old acquaintances, and note the vast changes that
havo taken place during tho many
years ho has boon absent. This gentleman is Mr. C. C. McCoy, president and
manager of the Northwestern Steamship
and Transportation Company, of Portland, where he resides.
"I well remember," he said, "my arrival from San Francisco in April, 1858,
at tbe spot where the City of Victoria
stands to-day. It was shortly bofore the
rush of gold seekers to this Province,
and I was on my way to tho far north.
However, the finding of gold in tho Fraser changed my plans. There was only
one little red store thon where tho City
of Victoria Is now, besides the Hudson's
Bay buildings. Gus Hill, Jim Daniels,

prospectors to take that line of country
for their explorations. Thero is no
question that the country in the neighborhood of Alberni is highly mineralized,
and, considering tho formation in which
the gold is found, it offers a vory favorable field for the prospector. Alberni
possesses great natural advantages���a
magnificent harbor, enormous water
power almost in tho heart of tho town,
a very large area of rich agricultural
land, a climate favorable to agriculture,
immense tracts of valuable timber, and,
probably, groat mineral wealth in the
immediate neighborhood. I found tho
present population of about 200 kept in
order by one constable, and thoy are so
peaceable that his position is almost a
sinecure. My visit was one of great interest, and I hopo to repeat It at some
future time. A largo number of claims
have already boon recorded, and prospectors are continuing to como in."
A   Wonderful Crash.

Victoria Colonist:

Tho truth of the adage that "thero
are two sides to every story." is well
borne out by the Opposition reports ot
the late political meeting at Clinton. It
is represented that the said meeting was
decidedly Opposition in its manifestations, aud that the Hon. Premier and liis
party wore scarcely given a decent hear-
as far as Fort Hopo, which was then presided over by Governor Walker, while
al Vale Governor Chawntor was in
charge. We located on the well-known
Hill's Bar, April 29th, of that year. 1
well remember tlie lirst steamer that stemmed the waters of the Fraser. She was
the Surprise, and mado hor first trip
from Sacramento in May, 1858. Sho was
piloted up the river by a big Indian,
whose head the passengers had adorned
witli a tall silk bat, and it was a comical
sight to see the Indians' surprise at tho
vessel, which they, delighted, called
���hiyou Boston man's house,' when they
saw thoir own figures in the looking-
glasses in the saloon
"That same month the first express

the locality in which It was held, and,
no doubt, as usual consisted of people of
varying political views. Undoubtedly
tho majority of those present wore in
sympathy with tlie Government, of which
Mr. Davie is the leader, and it is quite
certain that the Hon. Premier was well
pleased with what he accomplished on
tho occasion. The Opposition electors,
we presume, were numerous enough to
fairly represent that party, and their
speakers, let it be granted, received tlie
full measure of success thoy could hopo

Mr. E. Crow Baker, in his official capacity as managing director of tho Victoria Electric Illuminating Co., has beon
fined S10 by tho police magisrato for a
violation of the Fire Prevention By-Law.
Tho prosecution was a sequel to tho recent, blazo at tho Langley streot electric
light station, which was due to unusual
circumstances, something having gone
wrong with tho engine. Tho fino was
mado light in consideration of these facts.
lu answer to tho energetic representations of Colonel Baker, Minister of Mines
for ISritish Columbia, tho Dominion Government have decided to take immediate
action in the direction of continuing the
telegraph lino to Alberni. Tlie Provincial Government yesterday received a
telegram from tho Department of Public
Works, Ottawa, announcing tbat the
construction from French Crook will bo
commenced almost Immediately and vigorously pushed to completion. Tho distance to be wired is, by this route, not
much moro tSlan twenty miles, and the
iino constructed will bo of vory considerable utility, not only for commercial purposes, but lor reporting any wrecks
which may in future occur on the West
Coast of Vancouver island.
Much uneasiness is being felt for Tod
Davkin, son of lighthouse-keeper Day-
kin, and E. D. MeNaughton, who it Is
reared were drowned at tho mouth
of the Nltlnat river. They started out for Carmanah Point on a fishing
and hunting trip. On Saturday tho boat
was soon by tho Indians descending Nltlnat river, but it is not known whether
the missing men wore in hor- The boat
was picked up shortly afterward down
the river, the blankets, rifle and other
goods being in hor. .Mr. Daykin in reporting the matter said: "While 1 have
no proof they are drowned. I feel so sure
ol it that I give up all hopes of over seeing my boy again. I havo Indians
patrolling the beach on both sides, and
also searching tho lake. At 5 o'clock
Mr. Robinson called me up and said Hie
Indians had picked up ono of the oars
three miles oast of Nitinat, while he
picked up another half way to Clayoose
from horo. That would make it about
live miles oast of Nitinat, so you can seo
what little hope there is of thoir being
alive." Later: tho body of ono of the
men lias beon cast up on tho beach of
tho west coast. It is believed that the
men wore drowned in Nitinat lake or
river, and that the body drowned floated
out into the sea and was carried back to
the shore by the strong current which
sots in there.

Manitoba School Case.
Ottawa, Oct. 4.���When the Supreme
Court met at 11 o'clock yesterday there
was a largo attendance, the general expectation being that the Manitoba school
case would bo proceeded with. There
were on the bench Chief Justice Strong,
Justices Fournier, Tascheroau, Sedge-
wick and King, tho latter having subscribed to tho oath and taken his seat
lor the lirst time. Mr. Oaimot occupied
a seat among the spectators. Solicitor-
General Curran appeared Tor tho Dominion government in the Manitoba
school ease; Wade, Winnipeg, for the
Provincial government, and Ewart for
tho Roman Catholics. The commission
appointing Justice King was read by
Registrar Cassels. Chiof Justico Strong
said: "In consequence of tho absence of
Justice Gwynue the court cannot proceed
with tho Manitoba school case, which
stands first on tho list and which it was
Intended to take up first. Justico Sedge-
wick claims tho right not to sit on tho
caso, as ho was involved in it when
deputy ministor of justico, and without
Justice Gwynue we would havo no
quorum, l have written Justice Gwynne,
a..d until I got an answer from him I am
not, able to say when wo will bo able to
deal witli tho ease."
Tho ease was passed over and consideration ol motions taken up.
The Manitoba school caso has boon
placed  lor hearing at the head of tlie
Ontario list. Notwithstanding that Wade
was present representing tho province or
Manitoba, the court appointed Christopher Roblnton to attend to tho ease,
as Wade said ho did not Intend arguing
It. It is thought among legal mon hero
that Robinson will not aot. It would
scarcely bo professional If ho did.

Death of Dr. Sxvain.
The death of Dr. McSwain, whioh occurred at Santa Claia, Cal., on Friday
last, will be sincerely deplored by many
citizens of Victoria, where the deceased
had many warm friends. Dr. McSwain
was a native of Prince Edward Island,
and was about 47 years of age. He
came to British Columbia hi 1884, practising lirst in New Westminster and afterwards in Victoria in partnership with
the late Dr. Dearden. Ho was never
strone physically, and failing health
drove him to tho state of California,
where he fought a brave fight against
the Prim Reaper for six years. He sun-
mittod to several critical surgical operations by tho most eminent surgeons of
Britain and America, the only apparent
effect being tho postponement of tho inevitable hour for a brief season. A wife
and six children���four girls and two
boys���survive him.
Terrible Storm,
New Orleans, La., Oct. 3.���A terrific
storm struck Now Orleans late, last night,
coming from the northeast, and raged
all night and part of to-day, sweeping to
tlie south from here along the lino of
the Mississippi River, through the parish
of Piiuiiiormino to the gulf. The storm
was ono of the worst which over visited
this part of the. country and so fur as
can bo learned 24 or moro persons were
killed and possibly three times ns many
wounded, somo of them fatal y. Tho
wind hud reached a velocity of 18 miles
an hour at 8 o'clock last night, when tlie
anemometer was destroyed, and it constantly increased in force until 2 a. in.,
when its speed was estimated at (10
miles an hour.
pTIio crash of sbedsand buildings blown
down, trees torn up and houses unroofed caused much alarm, and most of
the population of the city remained up
all night, expecting their houses to bo
blown down. Among the, buildings destroyed were tho Sarau tro street market, which crushed several buildings In
its fall; the Uurdctto street mission
church, tho cotton yards of tho Northeastern railroad, Coleman's boiler shop,
Pythian hall, besides which numbers of
other buildings wore unroofed.
The revetment levoe on Lake Pont-
chartrain, which protects New Orleans
from the overflow of the river, was
washed away, the water swooping over
it 16 feot deep or more. Many of the
yachts there were sunk.or injured. Tho
track of the Louisville & Nashville was
badly smashed for 15 miles and it will bo
several days before It can be repaired.
Throe deaths and one person severely
wounded, perhaps fatally, is tiie mortuary received in New Orleans.
Below the city it was far worse, especially in l'laquerniino. Hero the wind
reached a velocity of KlCl to 125 miles an
hour, swooping everything before it.
At Point a la Haclie not a single house
escaped injury. The court house and
Roman Catholic church, the principal
buildings in the town, with 20 other
buildings, wore destroyed, and the situation became so threatening that the
greater part of tho people camped out in
the streets all night in tho heavy rain.
The air was filled with debris and the
wind blowing so fiercely that many of
them had to anchor themselves against
trees to prevent being blown away.
Six or seven persons are known to bo
killed in Point a la Hache. It is possible the mortality will be greatly increased when news is received from tho
gulf coast bolow Point a la Hache.
The orange crop was totally ruined,
with a loss of ��350,000 or more. Telegraphic communication was cut off with
nearly all surrounding places. This
morning skiffs rescued 40 persons about
Lake Pontchartrain who wore in more
or less danger. The storm came from
the north and northwest, going in a
south-westerly direction. The sugar
districts escaped the worst of the hurricane. There is much damage to rice
and sugar cane.
Portland, Ore., Oct. 2.���The long distance telephone between Portland and
Spokane Falls was completed to-day, and

Ban Francisco, Oct. 4���Tho steerage
passengers on the steamer Oceanic, which
arrived this morning from the Orient,
alnost precipitated a riot to-day, when
tin deputy collector of the, port attempted to take, tho baggage to the quarantine station at Angeles Island, for fumigation. The Japanese and Chinese on-
tertd a protest, which is believed to be
duo to the fact that baggage on prior oc-
casbns was damaged by fumigation with
acidt. The Japs wore exceedingly forcible ji their resistance, as well as tlie
Chinise. A compromise was finally effected by allowing ono Jap and one
Chlntman to accompany tho baggage to
tho Island.
Rev. Mr. McLeod on Trial.
Victoria, Oct. 4.���The adjourned meeting of the Presbytery of Vancouver Island, met to-day to consider the case of
tho Rev. Mr. McLeod, formerly pastor of
St. Andrew's Church, a communication
from whom was read, complaining of
the method of procedure in his case, as
being irregular and contrary to the law
of the church, as the ministers who
called tho meeting and presented the
petition, acted as judges in the case, and
formed a majority in the court. A resolution, prepared by the Moderator, was
put by him, after he had left the chair.
He regarded this resolution as irregular,
as it was put before he had a chance to
put in a defence. Dr. Robertson, not a
member of the Presbytery, had illegally
taken part in tho proceedings, and gavo
advice to the Presbytery. He (McLeod)
had done no wrong, no was not to
blame for the financial trouble in tho
church, and could not seo how the action
conflicted with the Presbytery. He do-
fonded his action in granting certificates
on tho ground that he was acting
according to church law.
The document was referred to the
committee appointed to answer the appeal of Mr. McLeod.
Moderator Mcllao asked Dr. Campbell
to take tho chair, and read tho report of
the committee appointed to consider the
application for the organization of a now
Presbyterian Church. The report was
received and road, the conclusion stating
that, thero was no need for a new church,
and that the establishment of another
Presbyterian Church would bo detrimental to Presbyterlaiiisni in Victoria.
The English Miners.
London, Oct. 2.���Among tho manufacturing towns that have keenly felt the
shortage of coal caused by the great
strike of the minors arc Sheffield, Leeds,
Bradford, Nottingham and Derby. Notwithstanding the. failure thus far of the
efforts made to bring about a settlement
of the dispute, tho mayors of those
towns have decided that something
should bo done by thorn In the interest
of business that is threatened with
heavy losses to bring the light to an end.
A mooting of tho mayors was held today, and it was resolved that they
should invite delegates of the coal
owners and tho Minors' Federation to
meet them on Monday next. They expect then to reach some settlement of
the troubles, so that the miners mav return to work. The mayors fully realize
the terrible suffering that is now everywhere accompanying the strike. Fho
men havo been out of work for over two
months, and hundreds of those who havo
families have sold or pawned everything
of value they possessed in order to obtain food for their wives and children.
It is a common occurrence for tho London and provincial papers to report tho
deaths of miners' little children who
have died from actual starvation. Relief
committees havo been appointed in many
localities to alleviate as far as possible
the prevailing distress. Part of the
work of those committees is tho feeding
of children, thousands of whom apply
daily for tho only food it is possible for
them to obtain. With this condition of
things prevailing, the mayors think
they may bo able to bring about some
understanding between tho masters and
men that will allow of a resumption and
a consequent output of coal that will
furnish the mills, factories, etc., with a
plentiful supply of fuel. Should tho
local famine continue, and tho industries
of the several towns forced to suspend,
the suffering among the operatives and
artisans and their families would bo
great. It is hoped that some solution of
the problem will shortly bo arrived at,
and that the price of coal will reach its
normal level. It is believed by some
persons that tho return of tho strikers
In tho Bolton district and in Yorkshire
will tend to induce the men still out to
reconsider their determination not to resume work until their full demands are
The Bombardment of Rio Janeiro.
New York, Oct. 0.���The Herald's Monte
Viedo cable says: Word just received
here from the Herald's correspondent in
Rio Janeiro reports that the bombardment of that city by the rebel fleet, under Admiral Mello, which was begun on
Wednesday, continued without cessation
all day on Thursday. Shot and shell
from the ships are. being thrown into
tho city, while the shore batteries,
manned by Polxoto's force, are returning the fire of tlie squadron. Tho greatest alarm prevails In the capital, which
is in an absolute state of panic. Business has beon entirely suspended. Tho
banks have elusod. The Bourse is utterly deserted, workshops and railways
have shut down. Proposals have been
made to prolong all commercial transactions, and every woman and child who
can do so is fleeing from the city.
Frightful outrages are being perpetrated by Poixoto's soldiers, who aro
committing murder and robbery and apparently are beyond restraint. Thoy
have killed defenceless persons and carried on a general plundering raid on
stores and private residences. Squads
of armed soldiers are scouring the city
In search of recruits, artisans, clerks and
merchants aro being pressod Into service on all sides, and mado to man the
batteries and fight for the government,
Other detachments of Pelxoto's troops
under direction of the President's chiefs,
aro seizing prominent persons who are
known to bo In sympathy with Mello
and throwing them into jail. Theso expeditions abound in chances for tho soldiers to indulge, unchecked in the most
atrocious abuses. All of tho English
residents of tho city have boon warned

THE pi.otteh is at wobk.
The Count Conrad Damonoff was able
to sit up. He was in a great stuffed
chair, playing with a favorite dog, while
near by him sat Stephen Urzen. Tho
voung nobleman had gained rapidly
since tho visit of Ruric, for tho antidotes
he had taken had proved efficient, and
he soon came back to the point he had
reached before the administering of tho
"Stephen," he said, pushing his dog
gently from him. "has anything been
heard yet from Ruric Nevel?"
"Not that 1 know of," returned Urzen.
"I wish I were   able   to  assist  in tho
search.   But have you heard anything
of what suspicions may be alloat?"
"Only that the hump-backed priest is
looked upon by some as having had some
hand in it."
Urzen did not know the secret of his
friend's strange relapse, for that had
been kept private; so lie had no clue to
the priest's true character such as the
count possessed.
"I believe the fellow Is a villain,''
Urzen resumed. "lie is surely a villainous-looking man."
"So he is." responded tlie count,
"I never saw such a wicked look before In any human face."
"Ah." uttered a voice close by tho
door, "who comes in for the Haltering
remark, my friend'.'"
"Ha!" ho uttered, as ho noticed the
position of the invalid. "Op? So you
arc recovering?"
"Aye," returned Conrad, "I am gaining fast now, as you may see."
Tho priest struggled hard with his
feelings, and at length ho managed to
conceal the deop disappointment he felt.
That is, he hid it from Stephen's eyes,
but tho count knew him too well.
"You havo not been vory punctual of
late, father," the latter said, also trying
to conceal his real feelings.
"No, no," returned Savotano, in a
perplexed manner, "1 admit It; but. the
fact is, I have been called away. Let's
see���1 have not been here sinco tho evening on which I found a stranger sitting
by your side while you were asleep."
"Who was the stranger?"
"I don't know. I think I nover saw
him beforo. He was a good looking
young man. Perhaps ho was some relative of yours."
This downright falsehood���so bold and
flagrant���astonished even the count, for
he knew the conversation which tho
priest had held with Ruric on that occasion.
"1 thought you knew that man," the
count said, looking the priest sharply in
the face.
"No. I may have seen him before,
but 1 did not surely recognize him then.
And now, how happened this sudden
change in your disease, my son? The
doctors thought you wero dying when I
was here last."
"Yea���I know," answered the count,
still hiding tlie deop disgust that moved
within him; "but a new physician was
called in, and he prescribed a now medicine. Ho said tho medicine I had been
taking was unsulted to my case, and so
he gavo mo new. You can see tho ro-
"Yes���1 see," was the reply; "and as
you seem to havo very good company I'll
take my leave. 1 have several calls to
make beforo night."
Tho count made no reply to this, and
as the priest found that he was not urged
to remain he arose at once. Ho stopped
twico before he reached the door, but in
neither case did he speak. As soon as he
gained tho street hejturned towards the
upper part of the city, and ho stopped
not until he had reached the palaco of
tho Duke of Tula. The old porter admitted him without question, and he
made his way at once to tho hall, where
he inquired for the duke. One of tho
servants went in search of his master,
and when he returned he hade the priest
The duko was in his private room, and
as soon as the servant had withdrawn ho
bade his visitor take a seat.
"Now, Savotano, how is it?" he asked;
"have you seen tho count?"
"Aye���I am from there now. By all
that's bad. my lord, the villian is gaining."
"Gaining?" repeated Olga, with surprise. "Rut you assured mo he was well
nigh gone."
"So he was���so he was Hut he is recovering now."
"Hut how Is it?"
"Why���he tells me he had anew physician, and that the old medicine is all
condemned, and an entire new course
"And under this new treatment ho Is
recovering, oh?"
"Well, have vou not taken some measures to fix this new medicine? Savotano,
you must not let him slip now."
"I, my lord, I have told vou how he explained tho matter. / have another explanation."
"What Is it, sir priost?"
"Why���thoy simply know that somo
one has attempted to poison tho count."
"Ha!   Did thoy say anything?"
"No���there was no need. I know that
tho medicine he was taking bofore was
tho right kind of medicine, so far as it
came from tho hands of tho surgeon.
And then thoro Is auothor thing; Tho
count must havo had some powerful antidote on purpose for tho pcison."
"How do you know that?"
"Simply because ho would not havo
now been alive had not such been tho
case. You may be sure, my lord, that
they know poison has been administered. Thev have discovered It In
some way, and taken the most effective
and speedy method to overcomo It. I
know this."
"And do you think they suspect you?"
the duke asked with some show of un-
"1 don't know, but I fear they do.
However, that amounts to nothing���
only to prevent me from working any
farther at present In the same direction.
I have not laid myself open to dotoctlon
In any way. 'Tis too bad! In four-and-
twenty hours more ho would havo been a
dead man"
"Then you know when tho discovery
wa< mado?"
"Yos���on tho afternoon before Ruric
Novel was captured. I was there just
bofore night, and tho gunmaker was
thou there, aud I noticed that the phials
wore gone from the table, though I gave
no signs then of having noticed it.  They
had even then commenced some treatment for his cure, for I could see that
the appearance of his skin had changed.
You must not blame me."
"I do not, Savotano. Hut there may
be some way left yot."
"0, yes���thero are a hundred ways in
which we can dispose of him. But I
may find somo way yet before ho gets
"Look you," said the duke, aftor a
short pondering over his own thoughts,
"you must watch every chance. Something may turn up in our favor. You
may find some opportunity to finish him
yet.    I wish you could."
"I will do all I can. bo sure of that. I
I shall watch narrowly. And now about
the other one. Young Nevel is safe, and
can bo disposed of at any moment. I
have let him live thus far because I had
do orders otherwise."
"Aye���that was right," replied Olge;
and as he did so he arose and commenced
to pace the room. The priest followed
him with his eyes, hut said nothing. At
length the duke stopped and looked Savotano in tho face;
"It would not bo a difficult caso to kill
him?" lie uttered in a low whisper.
"Not at all. Nothing could be more
"And could detection ensue?"
"In no possible way."
"Listen," spoko tlie liuinp-back, as
Olga    hesitated.      "I   strongly   suspect
that'twas this same gunmaker that led
to tlie investigation of that medicine;
and if it was he. then vou will be more
quickly suspected than I shall."
"Ha!   Why think you so?"
"Because he is a fellow of wonderous
wit and intelligece, aud can seo without
being told. lie has had several conferences here, and it was from here that ho
wont direct to the count's residence. Ho
knows by this timt why tlie duel was
hatched up, and if ho lias half the mind
I give him credit for, ho will know that
you aro at the bottom of tho poisoning
business.   I am sure of this."
"You are right, Savotano. Lot him
"I had thought myself that that would
be tho best way: for if ho wero at large
you would not bo safe."
"You can have him killed without
noise or disturbance?"
"I think so," replied the priest, with a
wicked smile. "At all events, his noise
would not hurt any one, for he is rather
too far away from tho world to make
himself heard."
"Where is he?"
"Why, whore you recommended; In
tho furthest vault beneath your old bathing house; and that is a placo where ho
cannot be readily found."
"And what disposition can you make
of tlie body aftor the work is dono?"
"Why���that is simple. It can bo hidden in the old conduit. You know
tho conduit still exists thoro, and
probably in some places beneath thero
and the river it is perfect; but near tlie
building it is all in ruins. The body can
be hidden so far in that no stench can
come from it in summer timo ovon to
thoso in the vault itself. So you see that
is easy."
"Then lot the work be done to-night."
"To-morrow night, my lord, will do as
well, for I am engaged to-night."
"Very well���let it be to-morrow. Hut
mind���this is sottlod. Thoro is no moro
question about this affair. When I soo
you again 1 trust you will have no reason
to offer why Ruric Novel has not been
disposed of."
"You ueod have no fears on that head,
my lord. You may consider that tho
gunmaker is dead."
"Right.   So let it be."
And thus did tho stout duko dispose of
Ruric Novel.
Again Olga took a turn across tho
room, and when he stopped there was a
dark cloud upon his brow.
"Savotano," ho said, "there is ono
more man whom 1 at least would bo assured is not in my way. I mean that infernal monk."
"I saw him this morning, my lord, and
I am sure he is watching mo. And ho is
not alone. He has others with him. I
have been followed, and ono of my men
���the one who entrapped Novel���told
me, not two hours ago, that he know his
steps had been followed."
"And do you think this monk is at the
bottom of it?" asked the duke with somo
"I know it, for I have seen him when
I knew he was watching mo."
"Then why have you not got him out
of the way?"
"Aha," uttered the priest, with a dubious shake of tlie head, "wo cannot always do as we would. Hut he shall not
live long���if I can help him off; and I
think the opportunity may offer itself."
"Ho is a bold fellow. Why���I found
him only yesterday���in my own palace���
in the chamber of the countess."
"Indeed! And could you not havo disposed of him thon?"
"Not well. It was in broad day, and
people wero about. Hut if 1 find him
there again my sword shall find Ills
heart. I have givon him legal warning.
But," continued tho duke, after some
further thought, "you must bo careful
in vour dealings with him. He may
have somo organized band always about
"I will bo caught In no trap," returned
tho priost, confidently. Ho shall find
that I can bo as keon as ho can. But this
Is very strango���"
"What Is strango?" askod Olga, starting, for ho, too, had been thinking of a
vory strango thing.
"Why���that this black monk should
turn up horo in Moscow so suddenly, and
commence, the first thing, to dog my
footsteps, and hang about your palace."
"Ayo," responded Olga. "Aud tho
same thought was in my mind when you
spoke. But nover mind���he shall not
escape me If ho presumes much more.
They shall know that tho Duko of Tula
is not to be trlllled with. There Is but
one power In Moscow above mine, and
that is the emporor himself; and I may
say that even he Is not above me. Ho
cannot got along without me. Doos anything turn up to puzzle him ho scuds
straightway for mo."
"Thou use your power for your own
good, my lord.
"I will. Fear not for mo on that
At this junctre tho priost arose to tako
his leavo.
"You have your Instructions," said
"l remember thom well, my lord���aud
thoy shall be carriod out to the letter."
"And when done lot mo know."
"I will obov."
And once more tho misshappon priost
was In tho streot, arid tho duko was
"Ah, my lord." muttered the pliant
tool to himself, as he walked thoughtfully along, you may be a little too confident of your power. I have known such
things in Russia!"
Awav back in the old cathedral of Moscow, and in a narrow, dark conrt, which
I was  overlooked  by  the towers  of   the
gigantic  edilicc,   stood  a curiously constructed stone building, which,  though
not connected bodily with the cathedral,
i yet seemed to belong to it.    It was  low
and broad, with a flat,  tiled roof,  and
without a  visible window.    Within one
of the apartments of this building���an
| apartment away down in the bowols of
the earth, where tho light of day never
came���were seated six men.    The room
was of fair size, and the floor, tlie walls
[and   tho ceiling   were   of  dark   stone.
: Wooden benches were arranged about tho
��� place; and there were some other arti-
I cles of furniture thore. too���strange contrivances   they   were,   and    fashioned
after various shapes and patterns.    But
of tha annon.    The place was lighted by
a large hanging lamp, whicli had just
power enough to make the room gloomy
and dismal.    The  six  men  sat about a
table, on whicli were a book and sword,
and the most prominent man there was
Valdimir the Monk!
And Valdimir alone exposed his face.
All the rest wore black masks, their
robes being of the same melancholy hue.
They sat their silent as death, Valdimir
gazing down upon tho tabic, and the
other live gazing lixedly upon him.
Thoy were stout men, all of them, and
the bore themselves toward Valdimir as
bears a servant to his acknowledged
"The hour is waxing lato," said Valdimir. at length looking up from the table.
His voice sounded In that place like tho
echo of a tomb. It was low and hollow,
and the others started as thoy hoard it.
"There's timo yot to spare, master,"
replied one who sat next tho monk.
"I trust wo shall not bo disappointed,"
said Valdimir, at the expiration of a few
moments more.
To this no answer was returned.
At length there camo a dull echo from
overhead, and tho six dark sitters started
up to listen. The sound grew louder,
and soon It sent down into that dismal
chamber the notes of coming footsteps.
In a few moments moro tho heavy iron
door creaked upon its hinges, and three
men entered, and soon behind them camo
three more, Thoso who came in advance
were two of them leading tho third as a
prisoner. And so it was with those behind. The iron door creaked again, and
when the heavy bolts had been shoved
into thoir sockets, tho two prisoners
wore led forward.
"Master," spoko ono of the new-comers, "we havo brought the prisoners���
two of them���as you commanded."
"It Is well," said Valdimir. "Let
them bo brought beforo us."
As the two men are brought where
the light can strike upon their faces wo
see the two guides who conducted Ruric
Nevel to his place of confinement. One
of them was he who met Ruric in the
streot, and the other is the one who
guided him into tho old bath-house with
the lantern in his baud. They shuddered fearfully as they gazed around
upon tbo dismal scene, and their looks
plainly showed that they know not why
thoy had been brought thither.
"Lesko Totma!" pronounced Valdimir.
Tho first of tho prisoners���ho who had
met Ruric in the street���started as heard
that name, and tried to speak.
"Are you tho man?" asked tho monk,
lookiug Into his faco.
"Yes, holy father," the wretch trembling replied.
"Then stand you here In front of mo."
The fellow was moved up in front of
the table, and surprise and fear seemed
to be struggling for the mastery over
him, for ho recognized now tho strango
monk about whom ho had probably heard
so much.
"Lesko Totma," said Valdimir, lowly
and slowly, "you have been soon much
in the company of a hump-backed priest
named Savotano. You know such a
priest, do you not?"
Tho man hesitated. He gazed furtively about him, and he trembled more
than before.
"Answer me!"
"Yes, sir���I know him."
"And now, sir, be sure that you answer me directly and truly. Do you
know a young gunmaker named Ruric
The fellow started with a porceptiblo
quake as this question was asked, but he
seemed to have been prepared for it, for
his answer was direct.
"No, sir���I do not."
"Ha���beware! Think well before you
"If you moan the man who fought tho
duel with tho Count Damonoff, thon I
have heard of him; but 1 do not know
that I ovor saw htm."
"Are you sure of this?"
"Of course I am."
"Frederick Viska!"
Tho second prisoner now camo forward. Ho was a few yoars younger than
his companion, though somewhat largor,
and ovldontly moro bold. Totma was
conducted out of* the apartment as Viska
camo forward.
"You, too, have boon in tho company
of this priost, Savotano, havo you not?"
tho monk asked.
"I know him," Viska replied, with a
slight touch of defiance In his tone. He
had not suroly looked about him to soo
thoso strango contrivances by which ho
was surrounded, or ho would not have
ventured such a tone.
"And you havo boon somo In his company?"
"Perhaps so."
"Vory woll. And now do you not also
know Ruric Novel ?"
"I have soon him, too, sir."
"And now���can you tell mo whoro he
Is at the prosout time?"
"No," was tho answer, short and
"Bowaro! If you have any regard for
your own welfare you will answor mo
truly.   Whoro Is Rnric Nevel?"
"I tell you I know nothing about him
nothing at all."
"And of this you are sure?"
"Who aro you that you assume to
quostlon mo thus?   I know you not."
Viska spoko this In a tone of virtuous
indignation, probably thinking that that
turn might servo him.
"Wo will let you Into the secret by and
bv," the monk returned, with a peculiar
shake of tho bead. "But I will ask you
onco more: Do you know whore Novel
"You need not speak quite so loud.
We hear easily."
"Then don't ask me Impertinent questions," returned the prisoner.
Valdimir started half way up, and his
fists wore clenched; but the quick flush
passed from his face, and ho sat back
"Look you," he said, as soon as he was
sure his anger would not manifest itself,
"were I not sure that you know what I
ask, I would not question you thus. And
now, once more, I will ask you���will you
give me some clew to the whereeabouts
of Ruric Nevel?"
"I'll anewor you once more. I know
nothing about him. You must not think
that this dark placo, and you men all
dressed In black, can frighten mo into
telling a lie, as it would a child."
At this point Valdimir turned to one of
his men���ono of thoso who helped bring
i the prisoner in���and said:
"You know this to be the man?"
"Yes, my master."
"And you have seen him in private
j confab with the hump-backed priest?"
"I have."
"And tho other things you told mo are
"They are, master."
"Then let down those inti-epreters."
At this command two of the attendants moved to tho back sldo of tho room,
where thev unhooked a stout chain from
the wall, and as they allowed it to slide
through their hands, a curious piece of
machinery descended directly in front of
the table. It consisted of a stout bar of
iron, which was suspended midway upon
the chain, and there rested parallel witli
tho ceiling. Upon each end of this bar
woro straps of iron, armed with springs
and screws. At a motion from the monk
tbe prisoner was led back till he stood
beneath the bar, aud then his arms were
seized, and raised up. He struggled
somo, and eursed more, bnt he was soon
overcome. The iron bands were passed
around his wrists, aud connoctod with
theso were two small cups which were
slipped over tho thumbs. Aftor thoso
had been firmly secured the chain was
tightened, and the man's hands wero
raised far above his head. There were
two results produced by tightening the
chain: It not only tended to draw the
thumbs back upon tho wrists, but it also
twisted the thumb, the two cups being
armed with lilc-like teeth within, and
closing tightly upon the flesh.
"Now, sir," spoko Valdimir. lowly and
deeply, "I am going to ask those questions again, and you will do well to answer them truly. Will you toll mo where
Ruric Novel is?"
"I don't know."
"Will you tell me where you saw him
last ?"
"I haven't seen him since ho fought
the duel with Damonoff."
"I have not."
"Mark me: I have had you watched,
and I know you have seen Nevel within
those three days. This I know, so I have
no hesitation in the course I am about to
pursue. Onco more���where is Ruric
The man hesitated now; but his answer was still the same. Ho would not
Valdimir mado a motion to the two
men who stood bv tho wall, and they
gave a pull upon the chain.
"Oh! Oh!" gasped tlie prisoner, as the
painful twist and wrench came upon his
"Will you answer?"
"How can I?   How can I?"
"By speaking what you know."
"I know nothing."
Another sign was made to the men at
the chain, and they pulled again. Another groan from the prisoner, but no response.
Another signal���and another pull.
"Mercy!" shriokod the poor wretch,
quivering with pain.
"Will you answor?"
"I don't know."
"Then we must try again."
"No, no.   Oh, no, more!"
"Hut you must answer."
"I don't know."
"Then you must havo forgotten, and
such treacherous memories need starting
As Valdimir spoko ho waved his hand
"Oh, God! havo mercy! Oh-o-o! Save
me!   Save mo!"
"Save yourself."
The wretch was in torment now without ceasing. Nearly tho whole of his
weight horo upon his wrists and thumbs,
and the latter wore drawn over almost
to tho wrist. But ho would not answer.
Ho had a dooper fear than this. He
feared to break the horrid oaths by
which ho was bound to tho scheming
Ono more pull upon the chain and the
man's feet wero clear of the floor. His
whole weight now bore wronchingly upon
bis thumbs, and he groaned in agony of
torture. Ho bore it a few moments, but
his coward soul could bear no more.
"Oh, mercy! Down! down! Let me
"But answer. Whore is Ruric Novol?"
"Hold, thou false-hoarted villain!"
shouted Vladimir, In a voice of thunder.
"This Is tho last of this, torture; but
when we take you from here wo can put
you into a state compared with which
tne pain you now experience Is real Jov!
Each particular limb shall be wrenched
out of shape, and your vory eyes shall
start out like���"
"Down! down! Oh, havo mercy!
" Where it fiuric Nevel!"
"I'll tell you���I'll tell you If you spare
"Toll me first!"
Thore was a moment more of hesitation���one single moment���and thon tho
miserable wrotch gave up.
"He's In tho old bath-house."
"Ha!   Where?"
"In tho old bath, near tho river���on
tho Tula pass���In ono of tho vaults!"
"Very well.   Lot blm down."
The chain was slacked up, and Erer.-
eriek Viska was onco moro upon his feet.
He trembled yot, for there was pain In
his arms.
"Now carry him out," ordered Vladimir, "and bring tho other one In."
In a fow moments moro Lesko Totma
was beforo tho strange tribunal. He
trembled fonrfully, for he had been
where he could hear his companion's
groans without hearing what ho said.
"Lesko Totma," spoke the inouk, in a
low, deep tone, "wo have given you time
for thought, and mayhap vou have your
memory brightened by this time. Now,
whfero Is Ruric Novol?"
"I don't know."
"Ah, you still forgot, ob?" 31
"I never knew."
"A most strange forgetfulness, I must
confess. Let the interpreters be adjusted!"
"Oil, mercy!   Don't murder me!"
But no notice was taken of liis cries.
The straps and conical cups were adjusted, and the chain drawn tight. At
tlie first turn of the self-acting screw
, the fellow shrieked. It was not so much
with present pain as with the fear of
what was to come. The very presage of
the place, so dark and dismal, had more
effect upon his mind than it, had upon
his com pan ion's.
At the second pull of the chain he
groaned and begged for mercy. He bad
heard of this dark place, and be fancied
that men who came there seldom went
away alive.
"Hark   you, you   base   wretch," the
monk said, "If you do not tell me where j was   murderous
the   young   gunmaker is I'll  havo   you ! within him.
torn   limb   from   limb!   another    pull,
As the wrench came again the villain
fairly shouted with pain.
"Oh! let me go! let me go! I'll tell
"Then tell. Yon leave not this place
alive until you have told!"
"He is���Oh! he is���in the old bath!"
"The duke's bath���on the pass of
"Whereabouts there?"
"In the lowest, furthest vault. Oh!
Vladimir waved ills hand, and the
quaking wretch was freed from his torture.
"Now conduct them both to tlie dungeons, and lock them up. Thoy must
not run at large for the present. Let
them be secure."
"No, no," cried Viska, who had been
brought back, "Y'ou were to let me go
if I told you."
"Not free, sir," said Vladimir.
"But you have no right to hold me
thus. I am nearly dead with pain now

had heard, lie reached tlie foot of the
stairs, and the othcro wero nearly up.
He started to follow them, and had
nearly gained tho top, when a quick,
lightning-like shadow flitted before him.
He would have started back but 'twas
too late. There came a blow upon liis
head, and with a dull,crashing sensation
he sank down, lie realized that he was
turned over, ami that a rope was being
lashed about his amis.
Hut the prisoner had not been fully
stunir.id. He returned to consciousness
as they lifted him to his feet, aud his
lirst impulse was to try and force liis
bonds asunder, but this he could not do.
He gazed up now, and he found onlv two
men with him, and they wore masks
upon their faces. They wero stout,
powerful men, and their very bearing
and   his   heart  sank
Ruric Novel could keep no account of
time. Darkness, and darkness only,
dwelt with him in his prison house���
darkness so utter that the only effect of
opening the eyes was the nervous reality
of the motion. In Tact, 'twas lighter
with the eyes closed than with them
opened, for when tightly closed thero
were peculiar fantastic shapes floatiig
in the Imagination, and even this was a
relief; and then there was a sort of kaleidoscopic succession of colors when the
lids were tightly pressed that seemed
grateful to the i'w������, aud gave variety
to the mind. Hut when the eye were
open only a cold impenetrable blackness
was present, within whicli there were no
shapes, no forms, save the one form of
utter chaos.
Ruric felt sure he had been there four
davs. and at times it appeared longer
than that. Food and drink had been
brought lo him thrice, and he was now
without both. liis strength find not jet
left him, though there were pains in liis
limbs, and a chilling sensation about tho
heart. He had broken the rope from his
arms on the first day of his confinement;
and lie had hoped to overcome the man
who brought him food and drink, and
thus make his escape; but no human
beiiiK had yet come in to him. His food
had been passed through a small wicket.
"And this is the end of life!" he murmured to himself, as ho paced slowly to
and fro across tlie dungeon. "Thus end
all the hopes of youth, and here the
prayers of a lifetime must close in one
last hope ���one hopo of Heaven when
earth has passed away! Mv mother, no
farewell can reach thee from tho lips of
thy son. Ho will lie down in the dark
slumber of death, and thou shall not
know his resting-place! And, thou
loved one���Oh! thou fondly-cherished,
wildly-worshipped being, thy smiles can
shine no more for me. Oh! Rosalind,
would that I could see thee but once���that
once more 1 might press thee to my
bosom, and bid thee remember me when
I am gone. Had I never seen thee I
might not be here now! And yet, O
God, for life itself I would not wipe
away the. written story of that holy love
from my heart!"
The thought of Rosalind camo heavily
upon him. All else he could givo up In
a higher hope than that of earth; but
for her he held a strango fear. Sho
would be another's.
"And must it be so?" he continued,
after somo minutes of painful reflection.
"Alas! she will be nothing to me hereafter! Mv mother will know her son,
but Rosalind will know anothor! And
yet���she may carry tho old love with her
always. Sho may nover forget It. Oh!
could I but once���"
He stopped suddenly, for ho heard a
footfall in the low passage closo by tho
dungeon. He listened, and he heard
more. He moved back to the extremity
of the vault and listened. The feet
stopped, and the sound of grating iron,
like the drawing of a bolt, was heard.
Soon afterwards the door was opened,
and the light from a lantern flashed Into
the place. For a few moments the prisoner was blinded by the sudden transition, but by degrees he overcame the
dlfticuly, and was able to look up.
The first object upon which his eyes
fell was the hump-backed priest, Savotano. There were four Others behind
him, but Ruric noticed them not yet.
He saw before him tho man whom ho believed to be the instrument of his suffering, and with one bound he reached him
and foiled him to the floor.
"Hold!" cried one of the others���one
who held tho lantern���"wo have como to
conduct thee out from here."
"Ha!���say you so?"
"Most surely we have."
"Thon stand aside and lot mo go."
"Just as you say. Tho doors aro open
and you may go. You may follow us, or
you may go In advance."
"Then lead on," returned Ruric, "and
I will follow."
"As you say."
Thus speaking the man assisted the
priest to his feet, and led him out from
the cell. In a few moments more the
' others went out also, and Ruric prepared to follow. He heard the priest
cursing, but he noticed that one of the
others led him off. The youth stepped
forth Into the passage, but he did not
place the fullest confidence in what he
"Come," said one of them. "You'll go
With us. We won't forco you if you'll
"But where?" asked the vouth.
"What mean you?"
"You'll see when you got there. But
there's no timo to waste; so come."
What could the i���risonor do? His
hands were firmly bound behind him,
and his great strength availed bim not a
bit. He knew that he could not resist,
so ho simply bowed liis head in token of
submission, and prepared to follow hia j
conductors. But they left him not to
follow at will. They took him by either
arm, and thus led bim away. Ho remembered the room into which he had
been lirst conducted on the evening of
his capture, but he was not detained
there. From hero a long corridor led
off to where a wing of the building had
been partly torn awav, and they soon
came to a large circular apartment, in
tho centre of which was a deep basin,
where, in years gone by, people had
been wont to bathe. The walls looked
grim and ragged by the feeble rays of
the lantern, and the chill wind came
moaning through the cracks and crevices
in the decaying masonry.
"There," spoke one of the guides, as
ho set liis lantern upon the top of a
broken column, "we will stop here."
The words were spoken In a sort of
hushed, unmerciful tone, and Ruric felt
them strike fearfully upon him. He
gazed upon tho man who had spoken,
and he saw that he was preparing to
throw off his pelisse, which he had thus
far worn. As soon as this was off, ho
moved to were his companion stood and
commenced to whisper.
Could Ruric mistake longer? What
reason, but one, could there have been
for bringing him to such a place? To
the loft, where the basin had once emptied itself, there was a dark, deep cavelike place, at tho mouth of which a heap
of rubbish had collected. What a place
in whicli to;!iide a deadbodv! So thought
Ruric. But he was startled from the
dark reverie by a darker reality.
One of the men had taken a club���a
long, heavy bludgeon which tlie youth
had not before seen���and wus just bal-
ancing it In one hand while he spit upon
the othor.
"Y'ou will not murder me here in cold
blood!" cried Ruric starting back.
The stout ruffian clutched his club in
both hands, but made no verbal answer.
"Speak! Answer me!" tho prisoner
exclaimed, starting back another pace.
"Do you mean to murder me?"
"Why," answered the man with the
club, In a cool, off-hand manner, "since
you are so anxious to know I'll toll you.
You will die within a minute!"
"And will you take the life of one who
never harmed you? Hold! If money be
your object���"
"Stop." interrupted the villain. "You
can't argue us out of it in that way.
You've got to die, and tho sooner you go
the sooner you'll get over It. You won't
suffer a bit if you don't go to kick up a
fuss. There now���if you hadn't bothered me 'twould have been all over by
this time."
What would not Ruric have given at
that moment for the uso of ono of his
arms! But that was beyond praying for.
Yet he had his feet. He said nothing
more, but he allowed the man to come
within a few yards of him, and then lie
prepared for tho only means of defence
he had. The huge club was raised, and
at that moment Ruric saw that the
other man also had a club. lie knew
then that thev had beon concealed there
until now.
"Hark!" uttered the second villain,
just as his companion had raised his
club.    "What noise is that?"
"I suppose they're coming to see if
we've finished the job," returned the
otliei, "and we ought to have none it
ere this.   But they shall liud it done?"
The ponderous club was raised again,
and with a quick, decisive lnomeinent
the man advanced. Ruric made a movement of the body as though ho would
bow his head for the stroke. Every
nervo and muscle of his frame was set
for the trial, aud for the instant his
heart stood still. Quick as thought bis
body bent���his light knee was brought
almost to his chin���and then, with all
the force he could command, ho planted
his foot in the pit of tho assassin's
stomach. The effect was electrical.
The wretch bent like a broken stick,
and sank down without a single sign of
The second man uttered an oath, and
sprang forward with uplifted club, but
Ruric easily dodged the blow, and then,
as tho thought for the first time flashed
upon his mind, ho darted to whore tho
lantern stood, and overturned It. Ho
had noticed an open passage close at
hand, which seemed to lead to some sort
of a dressing-room, and, guided by his
memory alone, for It was now dark as
Erebus there, ho glided swiftly Into it.
When he knocked ovor tho lantern he
had upset column and all, and just as he
reached the passage ho heard a heavy
fall, and he knew that his enemy had
stumbled over the fallen column. Ho
heard the curses, loud and deep, whicli
dropped from tho lips of tho bailled man
as he picked himself up, and In a moment moro he was edifiod by conversation between the two: for villain number
one had revived, though tho tono of his
voice plainly Indicated that he had a
severe pain still lingering with him.
"Michael! Michael!" groaned number
one; and as ho spoke Ruric could hear
him scrambling upon his feet.
"HI, Orel," returned number two.
"Have you dropped him?"
"No!" cried Michael with a curse,
which we do not choose to transcribe.
"He's a perfect devil!"
"But whore's the lantern?"
"He put it out."
"But you ought to have knocked him
down, you clown."
"So had you."
"Me?   Why, he kicked me over."
"Well, he dodged by me, and   kicked
over the lantern."
"But where Is lie now?"
"He's   gone.     Hark!     Ila!   I   guess
they've caught him.    Don't  you hear?"
"Yes; they've caught somebody."
"Aud of   course   it's   him.    He went
that way.    Let's go and find���"
he did not linish  the  sentence, for at
that moment a voice came up in thunder
tones, and it said:
-Kniic!   Runic!"
"What is that?" gasped  villain   number one.
"RubioI   Rubio!"
"That Is not from any of   our men!"
cried the second villain.    "Ila! they are
coming tills way!"
"Rubio!   Runic!"
"Where shall we flee?" cried Michael.
"There is but one place," returned
Orel. "Here, in tlie little dressing-
room. Come���let's find it. Oh! curses
on that gunmakcr's head! If ho be not
the very devil, then he is a bound partner of his. Havo you found the entrance, Michael?"
"No. It is near you somewhere.
Can't you���Ha!    In! in!"
At that moment the flare of a flaming
torch Hashed through the gloom of the
place, and the two villains stood repealed. A dozen stout men, all well
armed, appeared in tlie only passage by
which they could make escape, for to i
have fled into the dressing-room of which
they had spoken would avail them nothing.
"Ho, villains!" shouted Vladimir tho
monk, raising his flaming torch high
above liis head with his left hand, while
with liis right he waved a heavy sword:
"where is Ruric Nevel?"
"Here! here?" cried our hero, starting forward into the larger room.
"What! safe?���alive?���well?" Vladimir fairly shouted
"Aye���my noblest friends.   Hut cast!
off tliis accursed bond from my arms. It
cats into tlie flesh."
The rope was quickly taken off, and
then the youth embraced his deliverer.
No questions wero asked there.   Only a
few sincere   thanks  were   littered, and
! then   attention was turned to the two
villains who yet stood   trembling   near
\ them.   They had not attempted an es-
I cape, for the way was blocked up. They
were  quickly   secured,   and   then   the
party turned away from the place: and
as they went Ruric   gavo  tlie monk an
account of the  manner in which lie had
been entrapped, and of the events which
had transpired since.
"Merciful Heavens!"ejaculated Vladimir, as Ruric closed his account of tlie
manner in which he had overcome the
two men who had thought to murder
him.   "It was a narrow escape."
"But I might not have escaped without your coming,"'the youth said, "for
they would surely have found me. With
my hands lashed behind mo, as they
were, I could not have escaped."
"True���true," returned Vladimir,
thoughtfully. "It was a narrow chance.
But it is over now."
"And how gained you the knowledge
of my whereabouts?" asked Ruric.
"I'll explain it to you whon we have
time. Hut did I understand you to say
the hump-backed priest was here?"
"He came to my dungeon with tho
rest, and 'twas he that I knocked down.
Have you not found himV"
"No���wo have seen nothing of him.
We found two men in tho hall, that was
The place was searched all through
for the priest, but ho could not be
found, and when Vladimir was assured
that the arch villain had made his escape lie prepared to leave the building.
Tlie prisoners���four of them���were led
out first, and taken away bv the monk's
When Ruric reached the street the
stars were ali out, and the cool, frosty
air struck gratefully upon his brow. He
turned toward his mysterious companion,
and under tlie grateful impulse of the
moment he stopped. He raised his
hands toward heaven���uttered one fervent sentence of thanksgiving to God���
and then moved on again.
It was long after midnight, and yet tho
widow Nevel had not sought her bed.
She was now pacing to and fro across
her kitchen, and tho boy Paul sat nodding in his chair. Suddenly tlie woman
stopped, and Paul started up.
"Do you think that message was a
false one?" she askec, looking tho boy
in the face.
"I don't know," ho returned. "If he
camo from the black monk, as ho said
he did, then I think ho spoke tlie truth."
"Oh! They would not have decoivod
"No, my mistress, I am sure they
would not."
"But it is very late."
"Hark!���There are bells."
The widow heard them, and with a
wildly fluttering heart she sank into a
"Thoy have stopped in front of the
house," said Paul whose head was bent
in a listening attitude.
Paul started. The widow heard tho
door oponed, and sho heard voices In tho
hall. In a moment the inner door was
oponed, and she looked up. She saw a
manly form���she heard the magic word
���Mother��� trembling upon the air. With
one low cry of joy she started to her
feet, and on tho next moment she was
clasped to tbe bosom of her son.
"Did I not say I'd bring hiin back to
you?" cried Vladimir, rubbing his bands
with joy.
"Oh! Hod bless you, sir!" tho widow
murmured, gazing through her tears
into the monk's faco.
"So, so." returned the strango man.
"The blessing of an honest soul is reward
enough for ono night, so I'll take myself
off for tho present."
"No, no." cried Ruric. "You'll remain here till morning."
But the monk could not bo prevailed
upon so to do. Ho had business to attend to, and he could not stop; and ho
hurried away as quickly as possible to
avoid the thanks that were showered
upon him.
After Vladimir was gone. Ruric sat
down and relatod to his mother all that
had occurred since that day on which he
left her to go and seo the count. She
trembled fearfully as ho related tho diabolical attempts tbat had been made
upon him; and when he had concluded
she sat for a few moments like ono In a
painful trance.
"And do you think," sho said at
length, while a cold shudder ran through
her frame, "that the Duke of Tula was
the cause of all this?"
"J am sure of It, my mother."
"Then you are not safe yet."
"But 1 shall see the emperor."
"1 have seen him, my son."
"Ah���and what said lie?
"Why���he said if we could find out
who had done you harm he would punish them. Thon 1 asked him���suppose
it was a duke? and he said In that ease
lie should have to look into the matter.
Oh! I fear he would not dare to punish
the powerful Olga."
"Perhaps not; but yet, my mother, I
givo him credit for better things. Yet,"
the youth continued, In a sad tono,
"there is one for whom I care 'oore
than self, and who Is now within tho
wicked duke's power. Oh! she is liis
beyond any power of the emperor!"
"Not, absolutely beyond his power, is
she?" the mother asked.
"Why���of course Peter has the power
to set aside any wardship, but 'twould
not be policy for him to Interfere In the
domestic affairs of his powerful nobles.
I feel sure that his heart would bid him
interfere, but his judgment would oppose it.   Y'ou have seen Rosalind?"
"And was she unhappy when sho
knew that I was missing?"
"Ali, Ruric," returned tho mother
witli a kindling eye, "you do not know
how that girl loves you. Her heart was
almost broken when sho knew that evil
had befallen you."
The widow had it in her mind to toll
of tho scene which had transpired upon
the duke's coming into tbe maiden's
presence when she was there, but sho
thought a second time ore she spoke,
and then she concluded not to speak of
it at present, for sho knew 'twould only
serve to give her son additional pain
without bestowing any benefit.
"By heavens!" uttered Ruric, at the
end of a troubled reverie, and at tbo
same time clasping liis hands vehemently together, "was ever man so surrounded
by impenetrable mystery before? This
monk is surely a good man. He has
served mo well, aud I am sure he would
serve me more if opportunity offered.
But who is he? Have you found out
anything concerning him?"
"I have not, my son."
"But is it not strango?"
"It is."
And so they conversed until their
drooping lids would no longer remain
apart, and then, having first rendered
up their thanks to God, and asked His
help for the future, they retired to their
respective places of rest, Ruric had
strange dreams, and for the life of him
lie could not tell whether they wero good
or bad. Once be dreamed ho was a duke
himself, and that lie had a wife whose
face ho had never seen. Sho would not
raise her veil until the ceremony was
performed. Then she removed tho obstruction, and Ruric started on beholding the faco of Vladimir the monk! And
then Vladimir seemed to say: "All this I
have done for thee. Do you like, it?"
And Ruric dared not object because
Vladimir had done so much for him.
And now. while Ruric awakes from
his dreams and wonders what they
meant, lot us look in and sec what is
going on in the ducal palace.
It was early morning, aud tho Duko
of Tula was once moro in his own private apartment. He had not slept well,
for he, too, had had dreams, and they
wero troublesome ones. They hung
about him even now, and they filled his
mind with dark and gloomy forebodings. Ho paced to and fro across tho
apartment, sometimes stopping and bowing his head, and then starting on again
with new clouds upon his brow. Thus
he walked and pondered until ho was
aroused by a stealthy footfall close to
the door. He stopped and listened. He
know the stop. "Twas the one ho had
beon waiting for. Ho moved to tho door
and opened It, and tho hump-backed
priest, Savotano, entered the apartment.
"Ah, Savotano, 1 feared you would
never come," said th?. duke, as his workman closed the door behind him.
"I would havo come soonor if I could,
my lord; but evon now it is oarly morning. Tbe sun is hardlv above the city
"Well���it is early, I know; but I havo
not slept well."
"I have not slept at all, my lord."
"No? Savatano, you look worn and
weary.   But you have been at work."
"Aye���I have."
"And you have come to tell me the result of that work. Does it move you so
to do such work? I thought you wore
used to It?"
The priest gazed into his master's
face, but he did not speak.
"Bah!" said Olga, contemptuously.
"What is the killing of a man? But tell
me���did you conceal tho body so that no
one will find it?"
It was some moments before Savotano
spoko. His frame trembled, and his
hands worked nervously together. But
at length ho said, in a hesitating tone:
"He is not dead, my lord."
"Not dead yet? But you promised me
he should he."
"I know���but we could not do it."

Henry Corn, of Kaslo, has been sentenced by Justice of the Peace R. S.
Green to three month's Imprisonment for
attempting to commit suicido by cutting
his throat.
A sad occureenco is reported from
Kaslo. George Whitten, a well-known

was in the business.
The Kaslo people are well pleased at
tho incorporation of their city, as a result of which many needful public Improvements will, they hope, shortly be
made. They are also satisfied with the
C.P.R.'s rato for carrying oro to 'Frisco,
these being but little over X cent por

coffers, but now a change is to be effected. A movement is on foot In Kaslo to
unite the forces of the church peoplo
and the saloon-keekers, and close the
place up. A mooting of the star chamber variety was called for Saturday last,
and the fight may .be expected to commence shortly.
