left necessarily much to my own Company    at    Bnrlli.    Two    hmrrs   in the

twciitv-fiitir. A visiting teach,-r was
responsible for a couple • «f hours' conduct evety llav, and Eileti had tr look
after in,- for the rest of the lime. Now
in Ardballv, I had plenty of youthful
society. Even Aunt Iiella, who wan
older than Father, was, according to on
discrimination, not srlili.in both innu>

d uht there was some km I of method
in this beion.I my limited ken. She
was desperatively clever, Inlee',
Fsther-Olten told me that some of Ins
best articli-s on >ocial topics came from
Aunt Bella. The three boys were
clever too, but oii'rv one nf them spent
his talents. Aunt Bella used to lav, O'.
profitable qu.sls. Of course it was
lion.In..n who was the goody-gondy,
witli "hia quiet way and his nctiv
-pirit." Here I quote bis mother, f r
I wu s hiiml to that side of Iris cli "racier.
To me he was teasing, or, in; I severe
and satirical. They all were fall, and
the beautv among them began wedge-
w..y ar the wrong end. ami run thin to
the eldest, no thai Gerald tag. a fine
fellow, Houghton ordinary, and Jimmt
plain. The t ie,- came to meet ure a|

of Father's o'd friend, who was guinr»
on further When I s,w them 1 remarked to mis, If how inucn Aunt   had
In'pr-ved in her children.   Ami   when
ihev saw me, Jimmy said: "There bhe
is. I know her b ack eyes." Houston
said: "I know I won't like her."
Gerald sud never a word, but he din
what tire others did nd—he kissed me

When he returned    we   were   at   ten.
Vunt Bella presiding with exemplary
method, and sitlini! as stiff as the ol -
fashioned urn. Ho di I not jmfi ns, but
he stood a minute opposite srafi .g ar
me until 1 waR hot all over. Then he
quietly went up to his mother, put his
arm lovingly round her neck, and whisperer) whit I am almost -ure was, 'See
if she isn't a minx, mother, with, a will
of her own, and a confoun ed temper."
I wis just g-ins; to say: I have_ heard
you, sir. an I I »rll go home to father,
so I will," when Aunt B lla remarked
in her monotone: "You are no judite,
Houghton. What do you know aliout
girls? Oo offl" This encouraged me
to f rbeaiance, and swallowed my wrath
and a mouthful of crisp cake toge-her
Laughing a  r pple—that was  what his
augh was alwats like, he went outof the
room.   I saw him no more that night.
They said he was studying for an ex i-
inrn itirin. I,ate in the evening. Aunt
brought him up a cup of chocolate, an r
some torst she hail marie herelf. .Tini-
n,y and Gerald chall.d quite pleas.ntlt

How it came that I left Ardha'lyiua
hurry will not take h-ng tote I. It tru
the moriiiug of the people's aunu ,1 pro*
cession to thr- holy well, .nil as 1 hail
never seen a gath-rng of the kind,
Herald, mv handsome cousin, bad promised to take me. Consequently, 1
aas entirely   happy.
Houghton was in his room readim;
as usual. No one ever thought of in
terfeimg wiih him, and it »as seldom
heevei did me lire honor of interfering
with me. His ackn wledgment of my
presence took the oud snd disagreeablt
form of long staring-iualches when ver
we met alone, concluded on his part
generally bv a fiendish grin and a growl
meant to frighten me. Ouce or twice
h ■ hail accompanied us in an evening
-troll, ami then he excited a discussion
on the light and the wrong of some
ethical argument which really did terrify me bv us erudite tone. Notwithstanding that I admitted tire inperior-
ily of his footing amongst us, I was
often maddened .,t seeing how he ruled
ihe family. 1 took care, however, he
should not dicrate tome and, therefore,
many were the tiffs between us, until
Aunt's method intervened, -n\ rolled
me into a hard litile hedgehi-g of a girl,
bristling all over and safe in myself
How I hated Houghton, to be sure!
How t wished lie might fill in bis exa-
mniaiion, and thus shake thr infallibility
which served linn as a pedestal ill the
eyes of  his   people!
This particular mnrning I w 15 in high
j;lee, even though Aunt Bella's: sanction
to my going was of a most rleso ale and
damping natuie, I was just up in my
own bonny r om putting the finishing
touches to sn extra eliborale toilette,
when the bands give f rrth the s und
which went in those parts by the name
of music. "Drub-a-dub, druba-dub,
come along, come along" beat the
drums, anil the fifes piped a tune like,
' We are starting very soon, very snon,
very soon." My hear', pilted-patted
with excitement.    Gerald called   ut:
"Ciss, I'm grring to the end nf the
str-et. When you're ready meet me
there."
The do -r closed. 1 viewer] myself
In tne glass. I was ready and quite at
ease about niv pers inal appearance.
Down the stairs I ran, anrl 1 cros-ed
thr- Uiiilnig between the drawing-ro ni
ami Houghton's den, 1 heard him say,
"Ciss."
'■What's the matter now?" I replied,
as curt y as I could.
"Come here "
"I haven't  time.''
"Fora minute." IIJ wmr standing
close to the door, ami when I eutcreo
he lock ,d it behind   me.
"I am going with Gerald to the band,
He is waiting f r me at the end of the
street.    Let me go."
Quietly lie put the kev in his pocket
and sat down near the open wii dow
with a thoughtful air, as if we were together by appointment on private
Jn-siness. Now it was not lhat I simply grew hot with nnger. hut I hecain
aware of an inlernal ebullition which
every second thiealenerl to appear, only
lhat the strength of his position, so long
is I was on the wrong side of die door,
and he had the key, was very evideni
t r mv common  sense.
"I/'tine out," I c-ied, trembling with
■oppressed anger, "You are a deceitful bov a hypocrite—a horrid, sanctimonious hvpocrite!"
He laugher! h'S ripple or nt least it
gurgled ill his throat, and tnen he look
Up a hook, saying with perfect calm
ness:
"Oiss, yon never do anything to
please me. I.i.len now qtiietlv. There
is no use working yourself into a fit,
for it will onlv delay matters. I want
vou ibis morning to rl. something to
please rne—for variety, vou know.
Besides, il will he good for your temper,
anil Gerald won't be a hit sorry to get
rid of vou."
"Let me go, Houghton. I'll kick, and
8'atnn. and Rcr-am if you don't "
Thereupon I opened my mouth and
veiled fearfully. Ala-! there was no
one in the house hut the two of ns.
Kale, the servant, wis at the end of the
lung potato garden feasting ber ears on
trie .lisco'd, rind Aunt was out. doing
that delestahle district visiting, which
w.'.s supposed to be an angel's mission.
And so mv scream* had hi result, but
t" eli.'il from Houghton the insolent
rem rrk:—
'•Well, what a 'ittle devil it in. t' he
sur.-l Miss Spitfire, if you ,do lhat
again, positively, I'll carry you to th»

"I won't. I'll scream and stamp,

could not bear ir any longer. I stood
up, .stung to the quick, run! 1 dashed
ihi' Cicero out of his hand, and, ns fate
wouhl haveil ii fell into a rain-water
barrel in tbe yard below. Passion hail
mastered me.    I was raging, perfectly
iimil!
"Give me the key, you brute!" I
screamed.   "Am J a fool, an   idiot,  a
reptile, that you should treat me so/ 1
bate you." And 1 clenched my teeth
in fury.
He was still   undisturbed.
"Neither a fool, nor an idiot, not
even a reptile; but a devil, a little
black devil hot out of   belli
"line in.-thr key," 1 cried, throwing myself against him and trying to
force my hand   inm L  pocket,
He was strong, ami with case be set
me re ide contemptuously, It wus
then 1 sprung at him like a tigress,
ami seising him by the arms 1 wrestled
with him. Hut on finding how small
nu effort of his was sufficient to repulse
n.y all, I caught hia hand between iny
teoth, and bit it until the blood ran
from mv mouth. In an instant I felt
the fub horror of what 1 had done, and
t.iat ii wts ii"i to be undone! Shame,
wrath i.isr triumphant over my miserable little self! 1 had bitten him in
such n way that the murk wouhl perhaps remain for life. 1 fell back from
tuu attack powerless, sick at heart. I
ii i.i testr .I his   blood!
He never said a word, but taking
t!i • key from his pocket he walked to
the dor and opened it. Then motion
in,' in.- to approach, he said in a gentle
voir e;—
"I.... ('is.-, you are just what 1 expected    n devil.    But 1 like devils."
Silently, yet still panting with ebbing rage, and stricken witli tho enormity of tlie deed, I lefl his room and
went up to my own. The glass pre
sented mo back a bedraggled fury, pale
with white passion. Hair, hat, dross
— ill betrayed strong proof of a Bevere
struggle, 1 riid not cry, as 1 ought to
ha.ir dour- perhaps; but barring the
do ir I threw myself on my knees, and
begged my Mother in heaven to turn
her eyes away from her only child.
I could not make myself uudentand
that Houghton was the only offended
one, for it weighed on me that 1 waa
at war with the whole universe, hut par
tioularly with my dead Mother and
myself. Nor did it ever occur to me
to illume bim us he deserved, I only
kep making a dismal enumeration of
my sins, wondering was I created out
of spite to myself, to everyone with
who.ri I might eoini' iii contact, lung
ing trr die yet dreading condemnation
to a spirit mil world not visited by my
angel Mother.
In the end weariness lulled my busy
brain to rest, and when the voices to-
soun I".I through the house I was ah!
to g i down peacefully, nnd. before the
entire liiuiilv assembled to hear
Houghton's account of my strangecon
duet, to say without any undue heat:
"Hi'tortured nu', Aunt,   so be   did.
He called me a devil, lie said i cam,
out of hell. Then 1 bit him, I could
not help it, lam not myself since 1
left home, Yuu ure making me wild.
Let me go back, oh, please, let me go
back!''
I saw surprise spread over all the
faces turned towards me. I distinguished a "God bless us! what's gone
wrong with trie child/" from Kate. I
distinctly heard a heart-broken sigh
from Aunt Bella. The boys were motionless. Silence reigned over all,
then my tension gave way, and burst
ing into tears 1 hurried from the room.
Miserable 1 sat near my bed, in solitude, for the rest of the evening, until
elate, the large-hearted and narrow-
minded, brought me up some bread
and milk at nightfall, and urged me to
undress and lie down.
Whatever Aunt Bella wrote to
Father, it had for immediate result his
departure from home for Ardbfllv. I
was not much surprised to see, him, because from hints Gerald le^ slip' next
day when he was eovrfortirig nie 1 ex
pected 1 was going to lie returned
without delay. Poor Father! I loved
him so much, and yet 1 was constantly
annoying him; constantly—but never
consciously, for it pained me much to
see the troubled expression on his brow
after some sad exibition of my temper.
As he entered  Rosevale   garden   two
days aft.-r my scene with Houghton, I
i.m to rri'i't him, ami ia taking DM
into Us ••i-s'hii arm- for the old loving kiss, 1 heard him sigh—".My own
motherless darling.
"Oh, I ir.'    I   cried,   "I
hav,  been r   r r    ivelj e. ... -I     J have

in,' home quick, and I won t
be troubleeome any more, indeed, in

ther utterance, and Fathr r took ad
vantage ,,f the check nr tie itorm to
lead in'' back to the bouse, where I was
tajieii possession of by Km,, who nd-
ministered what the considered a re-
,|.n ite rum,ni.r of .-ponging ,,i my excited face, thereby making it considerably redder.
[nan hour explanations were given
and accepted; a reconciliation was at
tempted and failed; my wardrobe and
belongings were gathered together, and
farewells of t cold blooded character
were exchanged.
The three hoys walked with   us  to
the train- Houghton and Father  first,
then Jimmy, Gerald, and  I.
The  !
lug
_ was m; so, soon, were
we. I shook hands with all the boys
round, cherishing in my heart a hope
that I might never tee Houghton again.
As we started be let a parcel full into
my Lap, I opened ii quickly. It was
bis own beautiful miniature Tennyson
.My name and his was written together
on the fly-leaf. As swift as thought I
stretched out of the window, and Bung
it right at hi> head. It knocked off
his hat and struck  i lerald.
"OL, Cis, how could you be so
rude?"
"But, Father, what right has Houghton trr be kind to me?"
And I burst into tears in Father's
arms once again, and limped hia shirt
front  shockingly.
CHAPTEB III.
Seven yen's wear out the bulwark of
the British Constitution—its Parliament—ami seven years it is said,
change every atom in animal tissue.
Our household, nevertheless, remained
where it was, and as it was, the marks
of time appearing only in a sedateness
ami loneliness characteristic of a child-.
less family. I had grown up into
womanhood through a girlhood of exult -rant life, full of smiles and tears, of
I friends and enemies. Viewing ir from
the present il wus. on the whole, a
happy past not without clouds, however, but whal clouds came, came with
the silver   fi.
While Houghton was still a solid
tor's apprentice in Borth, Aunt Bella
died rather suddenly. Then the home
.■.'in.aii was gone and the different
members went their own different
ways Jimmy married early and took
the entire management of the property; poor Gerald, the handsome,
merry—hearted hoy, went off to sea
and severed all connections by never writing. To Houghton fell the
lot of supporting th ■ ■■ to! the fain

about HoughtOl .iii me Houghton
who above nil oil ,-rs, 1 thought, was
alien to my heart: Houghton, whom 1
tolerated just so long as he was submissive to my fits and temp ts. but against
whom I rebelled whenever lie asserted
himself manfully! Houghton, the cousin
I hated when a child! Houghton tjic cousin I fancied I could never like! It
only needed this breath of gossip to
blow' me into direct antagonism: for the
old dislike, the old stand-up tight in
my heart against his virtues, were not
quite things of the past. So when I
heard that his frequent visits were put
down to my account 1 was in amis immediately with twenty resolutions to
give tbe .world pur small world, something to talk .about.. There is never

SATURDAY. APRIL   5, 1884.
Real Estate infirm, with an upward tendency, and thu proej-eeti for a huildiug
boom are daily growing better.
W. SlxcKRBstAU will soon commence the
erection of a dwelling-bouse 24 by 26 on his
lot on Clarke Street, nearly opposite Capt.
Odin's new hotel.
N RABAT every day thi* week, and not-
withstanding the diaagreeable weather,
extra sttgea have beeu running tatweeji
here and Wcstuiiimter.
Personal.—Mr. (,'haa. Foster, of tbe firm
of Weeks 4 Foster, who htm l-een on an extended visit Kast, returned to Port Mo. dy
on Tuesday last.
The steam iln-vel, which has been wnrkinjr
at Warm-clt station for some time past, was
removed to the-Nicuiuen Slougii the i-ther
day.
The str. Maude arrived from Victoria on
Tuesday evening, with a largB iiuinl-er of
seugt-rs and OOfflsUsTttMi freight. She left
again early Wedmiaday inuniinit;.
MR- T. LiriHThR, well known in Port
Moody, has I wen np|-oiuted to an important
position iu Onderdonk's commissariat department, and went up-cmintry last Tuesday to
assume the duties of hi* office.
Work on the big cut at the Cooper property progresses but slowly, owing to the
treacherous and quick-sandy nature of the
•oil. Slides are of daily occurrence, but as
yet no one has beeu injured.
The new steam tug ■'Belle," of theR.C.P.
M. Co., made her first appearance at Port
Moody on Wednesday last. She brought
round a acow-loail of lumber, and then proceeded to Howe Sound for a large boom of
logs. 	
Mr. Kales' building on Clarke street is
being partitioned off up stairs, and he will
stock the lower floor with hardware and fur
niture next month. Mr. Williams'building
un the saiuo street is atxmt fiuinlied, and
Mrs. W. has her stock on tbo way.
Quite an extensive slide occurred at the
railway work on the Cooper hill on Saturday
last. Over one hundred tons of earth caved
down, but luckily no one was injured. The
railway track was slightly misplaced by the
shock.
Among the visitors on Saturday and Sun
day last were a number of ladies from New-
Westminster and Langley, and they were
all of on* opinion regarding Port Moody,
that, "it was just too awfully sweet for any
thing, and the moat delightful place imaginable to visit."
Mr. Lcnhbom has become a permanent
resident of Port Moody, and next week will
proceed with the erection of his oliice build
ing. on the corner of Douglas and Clarke
street. We understand be contemplates the
erection of a business! block ou John street,
in the near future.
A Movement should l-e made by Port
Moodiaus to celebrate the coining 24th of
May iu a littiug manner. We suggest a regatta on the bay M mu; of the attractions ;
and as by that time we hups tbe * larltc roud
will be passable from New WeHtuiinster,
such 'ipori would doubtless attraet a large
crowd of visitors.
The religious services on .Sunday last were
all well attended. A marked improvement
was noticeable iu the Hinging at the Kpisco-
pal service, and we understand it is the
tentionof Rev. Mr. lUauchard to hold a clans
every Wednesday for tho practice of hymns
and clruita used iu the .service.
There bus to bfl a first time for other
things besides marriages aud births, aud on
the first Sunday after Lent Port Moody will
witness its first performance nf the rite of
baptism. Mrs. K. P. Kelly will have two
children baptized at tbe Episcopal service
thst day.
Last Saturday's and Tuesday's trains arrived earlier than usual, and we believe it is
the intention to run strictly ou schedulu time
in the future. Every up-train carries largo
quantities of iron for the construction of the
road from K a vmi as Kerry to the Rockies,
Mr. Onderdonk having secured thu contract
for that section.
The New Road.— Hisexpected that work
will be commenced on tho new road to Westminster, on Monday next, and a largo force
of men will be employed. With commendable spirit, Capt. Clarke baa expressed hia
intention of constructing all that portion of
the road running through his property, at his
own expense. May bis shadow never grow
less!
Considering the numlwr of free schools
in the United States, the dense ignorance
displayed by some American newspapers is
truly deplorable. Prom a recent number of
She Philadelphia Press we glean the surprising information that work on the Canadian
Pacific Railway, "from the summit to Port
Moody, tbe terminus of the road on Puget
Sound,''is nearly completed.
The large contract for clearing and opening up Johns aud Douglas streets, w hich was
undertaken last September by Mr. T. J. Pogue, was finished on Kriday. Douglas street
is now open from the railway to Johns street,
ami will be continued on to ureet the Clarke
road. Johns street is graded mid ready for
the reception of buildings from the Elgin to
Albert streets, and lute in that vicinity are
secure from forest tires.
A Visitor.—Mr. J. C. McLagan, travel-
teg correspondent for the Toronto "Globe,"
and well known ss in experienced journalist
throughout tbe entire Dominion, called on
the Gazette on Monday last. His ohject in
visiting Port Moody was to note the rapid
and substantial improvements going on here,
and to impart to his paper 'the information
thus obtained. Mf. McLagan is a firm and
enthusiastic believer in the suitability of
Port Moody as a tern rnal point for the C.
P. R , and we are satisfied that his letter to
the "tilobe" will be reliable, comprehensive,
■nd encounging, as tt will be based upon s
personal nepe-etion of the place.
A Generous Deed.—At the conclusion of
the Method ial Service last Sunday, Rev. Mr.
Robson announced that Mr. tieo. Thompson
had very generously donated to their society
two finely located building lota on bis property, to be used as a Church site. The only
condition attached waa that the erectimi <,f
a Church building should he commenc-d
within a year. The location is a very pleasant one, being near the head of Moody St.,
and iu the front range of lots in the Thompson property.
The wjuabble now fotog BO between the

B. B. R. fi S Cm,--The Seattle ChronirU
is authority tor tlie following statement iu
irfin-iiee to the Relliiigham Kuy Railway
and Navigation Company. It says : "A
"railroad eonm-eting Whatcom ami Seattle
will greatly assist in developing the country, travel through a -splendid agricultural,
mineral and timber region. We under
stand that the road is actual'y to be built;
that Mr. (anti-Id has «<-cured funds enough
for this purpose, anrl that eighteen miles nf
the line is to Ih- constructed during the present season—at least to the coat mines. The
only point that should be borne iu mind is
this fact, the road is to be built from Whatcom tn .Seattle."
The boat belonging to the R. C. P. M.
Co., was taken off without permission of tbe
owner by two young fellows on Sunday last,
and they also helped themselves to oars and
rowlocks from another bout. Constable
Sharpe was notified, ami he telegraphed to
Granville to have them intercepted there,
hut towards evening they returned with the
boat. On being informed that the matter
hud been given to the police, they were "all
broke up," and protested they uud only borrowed the boat. This kind of borrowing is
dangerous, however, and may some day get
some one into trouble.

CapitalCoMiNo.—Kroin a reliable source
wc learn that immediately upon the dissolution of the Dominion Parliament aud the
Ontario Legislature, Rrittsh Columbia will
be visitfd by a number of wealthy eastern
capitalists, who will seek to invest a good
deal of capital iu Port Moody. A number
uf Winnipeg gentlemen, several of whom aie
already interested here, are also expected
shortly. Seattle, Portland, and San Kran-
cisco are already repict-cnted by capital in
Port Moody, and signs of an approaching
real estate and huildiug boom are daily becoming more apparent-.
Another Sawmill. —Mr. J. B. Tiffin, of
tbe Port Moody Shingle-mill, has ordered
from the Albion Iron Works, Victoria, au
engine and boiler nf fifty horse power, ami
other necessary machinery for u complete
sawmill. The building will be 30x100 feet,
and will he located just west of tho present
shingle mill, and its erection will be proceeded with immediately. Ihe mill is expected
to be in full operation in about nix weeks,
and having a capacity of 20.0<'iO per day,
will give employment to 25 or 30 additional
workmen.
Canadian Kihiiekies.- From the report of
the Department of Fisheries for 18S3, we
learn thut the total value of ti-di caught in
Canada during that year is estimated at
$17,215,075, exclusive of Manitoba and tl
Northwest, the proportion of each Province
being a* follows : Nova Scotia, $7,021,500 ;
New Brunswick, $3,185,075; C/uebec, if.
350,000; Prince Edward Island, $1,258,500;
British Columbia, 1*2,000,000; Ontario, 1800,
000. The catch of salmon in the Eraser is
reported as being smaller than usual, while
iu the Northern rivers of this Province there
bus butll a slight increase. There wus a ile
crease in the number nt fur seals caught ii
British Columbia waters. lu the various
hatcheries there were deposited in 1882,
50,,"kS8,000 eggs of four different species of
fish, and an almost equal number of young
fish were distributed therefrom in 1883,
The outlook for future years is very en
couraging.
A Similar Cask..—The lively town of Cal
gary, N. W. T.( seems to be laboring under
the same difficulties as Port Moody in the
matter of post office accommodations and a
recent number of Grip contains a comical
cartoon representing the state of affairs there.
Away in the distance appears Calgary, with
a trail of wondrous sinuosity leading across
tbe prairie to the post office. About halfway between the town and the office a party
of citizons have 'vamped for dinner," and
just in the rear of the post office are a nnm
ber of tents pitched, the inmates of which announce that they have "camped for tho
night until tho mail is sorted." The postmaster stands in front of his house, shouting
"hurrah for monopoly," evidently tickled tu
think that bs owns tlie only post office iu
that part of Canada. By leaving out the insinuation against the postmaster and cluing
ing the name of the town, the picture wouhl
represent the case of Port Moody to a
uieety.
The Boat Rait..—The second of what is
likely to be a summer series of aquatic contests came off on Monday afternoon last, for
$25 a side, between Messrs. Sincerbeau and
J. Murray, over the course from Rocky
P lint to the wharf and return. About one
o'clock the contestants took position and
farted off well together, pulling about thirty-four strokes to the minute, and with Mr.
Murray slightly in advance. This lead he
maintained, turning the buoy in 9tJ minutes,
with bis opponent about two lengths beliind.
On the home' stretch the stroke of each was
slightly in-creased, Mr. Murray continuing
to lead until within five hundred yards of
the finish, when one of his wrists failed him
and he gave up the contest, Mr. Sincerbeau
being declared winner and taking the stakes.
The time was a trifle over twenty minute*.
Messrs. McLean ind McLerie acted as referees and Mr. J. T. Scott as stakeholder.
After the race Mr. Murray challenged Mr.
Sincerbeau to race again in two weeks' time
for a like sum and it re probable he will accept.

Onderdonk is res lved to do all lie
on for Port Hammond. He deserves
<o"*ue thanked for his good intentions to
lhat port, but he should provide Port
Moody with the accommodation io
•which it is entitled. He takes passen-
ia good carriages from , ale to the

"Day by day the carefully matured policy of the Local (Jovernmcnr is p oduc-

direction.' Those are the first lines in
a leading article published in the "Colonist" latt Sunday, and every one of our

■what is the editor to get for that puff.'
He tells us too trni "the Chinese immigration has been taken in hand with a

musician says—this is exclusive to the
"Colonist"—: "the contractors will be

it possible that the editor of the "Colonist" supposes his readers are ducks or
geese ?

A man named Jones died last week
at Nanaimo while exerting Iriimdf to

But the ladies believe tight boois arc

Jones may be a w .rning to the girls.
Shakespeare, at Ottawa, delivered

A Teuhiiii.k Si'bnk. On Friday of
lust week a mob in Cincinnati i-,'s,,lv,-il
to hang a limn aeiiuitted by a jury,
and they proceeded tn destroy the jail,
because it was supposed to be a representative of law, but the authorities
were prepared to receive them. The
front and flanks of the jail were protected by barricades, but the rear,
which was the court house front was
not barricaded at all. At 9 o'clock a.
m., the mob fired the first volley of
stones and smashed all the windows
in the court house. At this Iiout the
troops from Columbus had not arrived,
and tine,, thousand armed men were
marching to aid the mob. At midnight the court house was set on tire.
The mob rolled barrels of oil info it
and applied the match. The soldiers
received the order to lire and tliey
did it with a will. Seventy five of
the rioters fell dead and over a hundred were wounded, but the mob never
moved and they continued to yell. On
Sunday morning the multitude dispersed. The streets are barricaded and
guarded by soldiers Col. Freeman's
Sixteenth Regiment did all the good
work. The Fourth Regiment marched
to Walnut St., marched back to their
barracks and scattered in all directions
and could not be collected again. The
incendiaries in a thousand places tried
to fire the city; they were all influenced
by bad whiskey and uttered the most
blasphemous language. Capt. John
Desmond and private Patrick Maguire
went into the court house to put out
the fire and they were riddled with bullets. On Sunday evening the Mayor
issued a circular inviting the representatives of law and order.to meet at the
city buildings. At 11 o'clock on Sunday night a screaming mobdeclared they
would make Cincinnati the Paris of
America. They broke into the hall
and were loading the cannon when a
squadron of soldiers charged with the
bayonet and scattered the villains. Adjutant-General Finley ordered all the
available troops of the Ohio Militia to
enter and take possession of the city.
Seven regiments and five batteries
marched in, and if the mob moves again
it will get what it deserves- a slashing
shower of grape shot.

THK HUDSON  BAY ROUTE.
[Fr-rm the Man ami Guardian.]
A very great effort is being made in
quite a number of influential quailers to
stifle the efforts of the people of Manitoba, in trying to secure a short, cheap
route for .heir grain to the markets of
Europe. The bondholders of the Grand
Trunk in England and the shareholder
in railways in the Eastern Provinces will
spare neither money nor influence in order to prevent the construct'on of the
Hudson's Bay Railway or the acquirement of knowledge to enable the pub
lie to judge of the value of Hudson's
Bay as a summer route for European
trade. It may be as these opponents of
the route pretend, thst the season is-loo
short and the danger to navigation loo
great 10 admit of the route ever being
used for the purpose desired. But if
this is the case, why are they so anxious
to prevent the proper investigation being made? The expenditure by the
Dominion Government of $ 150,00x1 is
ce tainly not a very serious affair, and it
will verv possibly lead to discoveries in
the surrounding coast of the Bay which
will repay a hundredfold the outlay, even
if it results in the abandonment of Hudson's Bay as a trading route. Hut wc
suspect they are not talking from conviction, these encm es of the Hudson's
Bay route, but with a desire to convince
others,and «e trust tliey will be foded
in he attempt to thwart the just de
mands of the people of Manitoba ; the
Grits, of course, are the most determined
enemies of the route.

The Gulf of Mexico appears to be

THE W.-.R IN EGVl'T.
[I'roui the Mainland Guardian.]
The latest news conveys the information thai General Graham with hi
troops had em'ai'kcil ai Suakim, and
were on their way home. This intelli
gence we might have looked for long
ago, and had a conservative Govern
ment been in p wer there can be little
doubt that such would have been the
case. We cannot imagine a more striking instance of the laite economy and
bad management of a radical Government. That the crack regiments-the
very flower ol the British Armv should
be wantonly sacrificed in a deadl) climate where the poor fellows were overworked, ill-fed, tormented with insects
and exposed to a set of savages in numbers wholly inadequa e to the hordes
they had to contend with i- quitein keeping ■ ith the Glads one regime. The
expenditure of a lit le more money
would have provided an army of Ben-
galese, Punjabces, Gourkas, and millions of others if necessary, »ho arc fitted lo cope with the Arabs, t'.e cliinale,
and the many privations for which Europeans are unsuited ; they would have
swept Osman Digma, the Mahdi, ami all
the sla c- dealing rascals ut ol the Soudan in a short rime As it is, many valuable lives have been sacrificed, and
many more ill undoubtedly follow—
poor Gordon we fear amongst the rest ;
and the work is yet undone and will
have to be undertaken with heavy renewed sacrifices, in the wav it should
have been done at the beginning. The
sufferings of tbe gallant highlanders
must have been truly fetrful. We see
it sfated in one account, that when the
troops marched from Suakim, as many
as twenty-five per cent, of the men fell
otfrom the ranks in a march of only
eleven miles from the city. This we
believe r>> be exaggerated ; but we must
remember that tbe men »ere wasted by
disease and were constitutional!, unable
to bear the exposure to a broiling sun,
on the hotf sands of the Soudan deserts.
How long will the BWlish people sub
mil to have their best soldiers literally
murdered to please radical views of
economy ? This is not the first instance.
The shock ng mismanagement in South
Africa was bad enough ; the blundering

DEATH OF H. R. H. PRINCE
LEOPOLD.
[l-'i'im tin- M ijulsn'l Onaniltfi j
An affliction ej sudden nnd unexpected lia« not visited the Royal family
of Givat Britain during the present
century. The death of probably any
oth'T member, excepting H. H. H. the
Prince of Wales, would certainly not
have created tho profound grief which
at this moment exists in England.
Prince Leopold, from his earliest infancy, was of a very delicate constitution,
and required more than any other member of the family, his royal mother's
care and solicitude. We need hardly
say that the liability to periods of illness, and the fact of his being the
youngest child, endeared him to Her
Majesty, and he became the pet lamb.
Ho generally accompanied Her Majesty
on public occasions, and was never seen
alone, outside of the palace. His constitutional infirmity and \ory sensitive
nature, inclined him to tho study of all
refined accomplishments, and in these
he was exceptionally perfect. In this
way he not only entwined himself
around the heart of his Royal mother,
but drew to himself tho affections of
every member of the Royal family; in
deed, everyone with whom he was even
for a short time associated. To the
Princess, hia wife, the blow must indeed
be severe. The marriage of tho Duke
of Albany with the Princess Helm of
Waldetk, Pyrmont, was surrounded by
somewhat more of romance than usually
encircles Royal marriages; tho young
couple really loved each other. Coupled
with this the fact that she is but recently a mother, some idea of the terrible affliction with which she has been
visited, may be understood. The circumstances of His Royal Highness'
death were extremely sad. He was at
Cannes, in France, for the benefit of
his health. In the act of leaving the
English Club, lie slipped and fell down
the steps, his head striking the stone
basement. He was at once removed
in an insensible condition, but subsequently rallied sufficiently to write io
the Princess, his wife. He told her
that ho had met with an accident and
would not be able to rejoin her at the
time appointed. At 2 o'clock in the
morning his physicians observed that
he was breathing heavily, and that he
was apparently in a tit. These symptoms were unhappily indicative of the
real state of the case, and he expired at
six o'clock in the morning, in the
31st year of his age. Heartfelt
sympathy with Her Majesty and the
rest of the Royal family is universal,
and the memory of Prince Leopold will
be embalmed with a nation's tears.
CONNECTION   WITH  PORT
MOODY.
[Trom tbe M inltuid flu-Hnn !
Our citizens seem to think that
events in relation to tho terminus, are
sure to turn out to their advantage, so
that any effort on their part would be
a mere waste of exertion. In this they
are deceiving ttiemielv-M, and the loss
of present opportunities will 00*1 then
many bitter regrets. They should
never for a moment forget that the
people who will rule and guide the des-!
tinies of Port Moody are almost an entirely different nice from themselves.
The existence of our people so many
years in this sleepy huliow, has completely demoralized tlirni. and they are
il little fitted to struggle for a front
plaVOfl in the world's progress, as children. We have often, in these rolumns,
beSOOffht them to have a good road
constructed to Port Moody, but we
might as well have appealed to the
flagstaff on tho Hyack Hall. Some little spasmodic effort was mado a short
time ago, and certain promises made, n
survey completed and tenders called for.
In any other country this would have
been tantamount tothe immediate con
struction of tho road ; not so here.
With all these preliminaries disposed
of, the chances are a hundred to one,
but some excuse will bo found for deferring construction, and our citizens
will sit idly by and look on while their
trade is being taken from them and
their property in this city reduced by
fifty per cent, in its value. If thero
was any spark of enterprise left in thoir
composition they would note that tho
people of Port Moody are tired of waiting for a road to this city, that they are
now looking for a semi-weekly service
between the terminus and Victoria, and
failing that, they will appeal to the
Northern Pacific Company who will
respond to their call with alacrity; and
when this last company have placed
their boats in the service, farewell both
to Victoria and New Westminster: the
people of Port Moody will never trouble themselves about them after. The
last opportunity remaining to this city,
now exists ; a great number of our citizens are engaged at present in build
ing houses and otherwise occupying
themselves with business at the
terminus; if tlie road was completed immediately, these persons
would increase! and strengthen the
connection before a largo infusion of
the foreign element completely neutralizes their efforts. Amongst tho new
citizens, who will engage in business al
most immediately at Port Moody, are
many Americans who have business
connections in the neighboring States,
aud who will utilize their opportunities
without a moment's delay or relaxa
tion. What chance will our somnolent
traders have with them 1 Let us secure what we cau without a moment's
delay, and while acquiring the road for
our trade we securethc attraction which
will bring guests to our hotels and tra
veh-rs to fill the stages plying between
this city and Port Moody. If we miss
the tide wc may turn this city into a
Methodist camp-meeting, where we can
pursue our devotions undisturbed.
THK  LUMBER OX THE   PACIFIC
COAST.
The fact that tho representatives of Cali
forma in Congress should have bean able to
cuter a protest in the name of their ooiiRti-
t in nt** against tho repeal of the duty upon
lumber is a further indication of the igno
fanes which pervades the public mind in re
ganl to the nature of the North American
forests—ignorance which is all the more re
markable ui view of the economic relation of
these forests, direct and indirect, to the
prosperity and growth of the natioo.
There is a sentiment iu California, which
has lieeu growing strong during the last two
or three yearn, that the .State sh'-uld not
make the mistake which has so often been
made in older countries, of destroying the
forests unnecessarily, or at least such portions of them as set-m indispensable, owing
to the peculiar topography of the Pacific
const region, to prevent nooda and keep up a
sufficient body of water in the rivers to meet
sll requirements for the purposes of irrigation of a much larger population than yet
occupies the California valleys.
TtiiB opinion has been generally and emphatically expressed by the pross of the
.State, and it seems entirely within tho
bounds of probability that this protest
against free lumber has been organized by
the small group of rich and influential dealers in lumber residing in San Francisco, who
control the mmiulacmre of liunlw along the
shores of Puget Sound and the Oregon coast.
They are especially interested in securing
the retention of this duty upon lumber, because it enables them to regulate both the
the production and the price of lumber nf a
certain class through an association1 of manufacturers sufficiently strong to .'atop production whenever it appears for their interest
to do so. This little group of San Francisco
dealers are interested in retaining this duty.
No one else, however, living on the Pacific
coast, and especially no one in California,
wants it retained, tor the reason that no
other citizens of that community derive the
slightest benefit from such a duty, which in
that country needles-dy inceases to the consumer the cost of a certain kind of lumber
largely used for   various   purposes.
The duty upon lumber, so far as the Pacific coast is coucerned, affects only the yellow
or red fir of British Columbia. The tree
which produces this lumber is peculiar to
the Pacific forest of North An.erica. It
forms greats forests along the coast of British Columbia for a considerable distance
north of the boundary of the United States;
it is the most common and the most valuable
timber tree of the region adjacent to Paeet
Sound ami through the Oregon coast ranges.
Yellow fir lumber can be manufactured as
cheaply at Burrarri's Inlet said other points
north of the boundary as it can on Puget
Sound or Coos Bay. This Is (The whole secret of the movement agahvst free U**i»W on
the   Pacific coast.
The manufacturers of yellow fir   wish   to
continue their great monopoly at the expense of the consumers and of the forest* of
the Northern coast. The lumber industry
of California is not affected by this duty one
Way or the other. The trees which supply
California with the largest part nf its lumber arc no* here found ocyond the limits of
the Unite! States; while the yellow fir of
British Columbia, although not at all rare in
California, does not form then1 great continuous forests, and yields hardly an appreciable percentage of the lumber manufuc
turcd in thut State. Apart iron, the yellow
fir, the redwood of the California coast, the
sugar nine of the Sierra Narad* Mountains,
the tide-land spruce, and the Point Oxford
cedar of the Oregon const are the timber
tree* of Wastarn North America, All of
tfcsai tr--e«, with tha *xc<pti''n of the
spruces, not yet in gcin-ial un:*, ore conlined
to this region of tut- Cniled States. These
fcraes prodoof cl.-ar, saaflf worked lumber,
excellent for all general building piirp-rmcii,
and bearing very much the name relation to
ytUoW Br a*Ottt Ho*tern while pinu l-ears
to the yell..*-, pin* of tho S-utht-rii Mate*,
There is no competition In-tween redwood
anrl sugar pine, the really valuable luml>er
4 Califurnia, and the yellow tir, aud there
-aunot be, localise they are used for entirely
lilbriiit pnrpOSsa,     Tns producers   of   Cab
landa Inaibsf need feel no ..imety,  there
fore, about tbi result whieh the removal of
this duty will have upon their business-
they will not find it less pr.itifR.ile to mom,
facture sugar pine and redwood without a
protective duly, btOMM, like the manufac-
EOsfllfl of nine in the Southern States, they
are not affeeUd by thin duty one way or the
other. On Uo other hand, all consumers
of coarse lumber in the Pacific States will
lie greatly benefited. The monopoly of the
Puget Sound manufu'tuiers will lie  broken,
I tho   Dragon   and   California   markets
II get   the   advantage   of   British    competition.
There arc moreover, other and more
weighty reasons which make it dehirable,
■o fir as tha foreata of the Pecifioaoaas are
concerned, that lumber should l>o placed
upon the fn-c list, The regions almut Puget
Sound and the coast ranges of Washington
Territory und Oregon are covered with the
reatcst body of timber known in the world.
.'he amount of this timber is incredibly
large, but it is not inexhaustible. No forest
is jiMxIi.iustible with the present improved
mechanical methods of lumbering, and the
demands of modern civilization for lumber.
These vast i Tests, therefore, will sooner or
I.i trr diH-.ip; ear as sources of great lumber
upply, just as other great forests have disappeared. It is of the utmost importance,
however, that tha extinction of this lumber supply thou Id be delayed aB long as possible. I In-'' forests contain the great lumber reserve,'if the continent. The lumber is
coarse as compared with either rodwood or
white pine, but it ia of more general value
for buildiiirj. than our Southern pines; and
when the vhito pine and redwood are gone,
it is the only lumber upon which the Pacific
countrv wulepend. The prairie States of
the int ormust also before many years
rely largely if not entirely, upon Puget
Sound tir for building material. Chicago
and all the Northwest markets, astounding
as such ainteinent must appear to such
persons as arc unacquainted with the havoc
now being.ommitted in our Eastern forests,
Will have t" draw their supply of lumber
from the Pacific coast. The preservation of
this lumber simply, therefore, is of the
greatest iiiportaiice to tho future develop,
ment of tin country, especially of the central and northern regions, between tbe
Itoeky Maintains uud the Mississipi. It
sliould not be frittered away before it is
needed. These forests are, nevertheless,
disappearing, like the forests ull over the
United States. The inroads which have
been mill upon them are not, perhaps, very
serious mt. but the country cannot afford to
waste uimecessarily any portion of these
forests,,.^ iwever small. Tha duty upon
lumber,,Juiiiufuctured iu British Columbia
rOaasarv and dangerous sacrifice
L-sts uud hasten* their destruction,
hen-toie, iu the interests of the
try, be removed, that the dostruc-
nay be reduced as much as posj
>• competition with the rnanufuc-
'ttish Columbia.
I two fact* which should be 1-ornc
in mind: The only great body of
building timber of general utility remaining
in the wrild U found upon our northwest
coast; an I the condition of the forests of
North Atut-ricu is such that the whole country will he obliged iu u few yeurs to depend
for its gi'iieral supply of lumber upon those
forests. Congress, therefore, should not
make tin' mistake of hastening unnecessarily
the destraotion of this great timber rcaerve,
as it ha hastened and U still hastening the
extermination of the white pine and spruce
of the Eastern States. -A'. )'. Sun,
AMnn.KYlJitiLL.— An Knglish gentleman,
long resident in, uud just returned from, the
Persian capital, gives an am using description
of the litest adopted system, or rather systems, uf foreign military instruction pursued
in Teh ran. Officers of nearly every nationality iii Wastarn Europe have at different
period^ under* tic- n or attempted the reorganisation of the Persian army. It is only
some two years since a stuff of Austrian officers Ntornad ftom Pef*ja utter completing
a tortn of military instruction, with the results .if which they were unanimously disgusted. Since that time it appears the Per*
sian i ivemmejit have retained a mixed staff
of military instructors, with the hope no
doubt that greater progress wouhl result
from the creation of a spirit of emulation.
Thu*there are five regiments in tho Persian
eapitd respectively under the immediate
command and training of l.ussian, French,
l>onii.m, Austrian, aud Italian officers. In
confluence of the unlimited authority
pl.t! t in the hands of these foreign officera
each une pursues his own national or Ideal
system in drill, evolutions, regimental regulations, and even equipment. The ttuasian
oflicr r, for instance, insists ou mounting his
Cavalry in Consack saddles, and each officer
trains his men to the words of command is-
aus.1 in his (the officer's) own tongue. That
e v*ry lively spirit of emulation and even
partisanship has been created is amusingly
apparent ou a geneial parade when, say, the
regiment under the command aud tuition of
thederman officer murchea defiantly past
to the music of the Wacht am Rhein, followed ar preceded; at the cose may be, by the
French-officered regiment playing the Mar-
sriUuine, and similarly with the Russian and
Austrian controlled battalions. Aa a result
of a mixed and energetic military training
thn is perhaps very gratifying to the Per
aian War Minister, but if these corps, deprived by resignation of their military ins-
atnictors. should find themselves on active
service under the command of a European
bti-radier, it is possible some little confusion
might ensue.
Prof. Mohn of Christian ia, Norway, having been employed by the Ooverment io investigate the efficiency of the protection afforded to buddings by lightning rods, seen a
to have substantially settled the much de-
1'utod question, at least for that region of
country. His report imows that lighthouses,
telegraph stations, and other exposed buildings, wnich were provided with conductors,
did not by far suffer as much ae churches,
which inmost cases were, unprotected. It
appears, in fact, that of aSout I0(T churches
reported to have been struck by lightning,
only three were provided with conductors;
that of these three the first had a conductor
in good ordeY, and the building was uninjured; the second had a conductor of zinc
wire, Whh-h melted, and, of course, left the
structure without protection; the third had
a wire which was rusty where it j--ined the
•■arth, and the church w-as burned. More
than one-hklf the number of churches struck
were totally destroyed. Mr. Freece, the
Knglish Government electrician, states that
no damage has occurred since telegraph polea
v.ere eaith wired.

THE  RESTITUTION- 07 COVJUfiAL
RIGHTS IN   KNULAND.
The lxird Chancellor hns introduced
int'ith" House of Lords a bill to amend
the Mittriiinriiiul ('aimer* iicih. It provides that alter the fn wring nf the act u
.I.- rcr lur iei<titiiiio-fi of conjugal rights
shall not be enforced by attachment;
hut where the application iu by the
wife tlie Court may. at the time of making Biich dei-ree, or at any time afterward, order that, in the event of Mania
decree no*, being complied with within
any time limited Iry the Court, ttie r.-s-
ponrleii" shall make to the petitioner
sni-h periodical payments as limy he
just; and niich order may be enforced in
the Bame milliner as an order for alimony iu a suit of judicial depuration.
Where the application for  the   remitu-
ti if conjugal rights fn  by  tbs   Iiii*-
hanrl. tha Court may, if it hIiiiII think
fit, order a settlement to be inruli- r,! any
property tn which the wife may be en-
litled, for tbe benefit of thu petitioner
ami of the children of tha marriage, or
order nob part as the Court may think
reasonahle of the wife's prolitH of trade
nr ,'.ii ningB to be periodically paid to
the petitioner for his own benefit or for
tho benefit of the children of the marriage.
The bill further seeks to alter the
present law by enacting thai, if a respondent shall fail to comply with the
decree of the (>)urt for restitution of
conjugal rights, such respondent shall
thereupon be deemed to have been
guilty of dceertion without reasoiiahle
cause, and a suit for judicial separation
may he forthwith instituted, and a sentence of judicial separation mny be pronounced, although the period i»f two
yeas may not have elapsed since the
failure to comply with ths decree for
restitution of conjugal rights.
Recently in a suit in the Queen's
■Bench in London, brought by the tenor
of his "Hip Van Winkle" troupe against
Manager Henderson, for dismissal without cause, it was shown that his Binging
was occasionally out of tunc, and that
there was one particular high note
which, like that of sonic of Col. Maple-
son's tenors, "sometimes came off and
sometimes didn't." The Judge gave
the plaintiff tenor damages, however,
because it was proved by experts that
the very greatest artists sing often out
of tune,* und the question was entirely
one of degree. During the trial it wns
suggested that, after the precedent of
the licit case, the tenor should give the
Court a specimen of his powers. In a
somewhat similar case, In which he was
a litigant in Philadelphia, the late Irish
comedian, Crllins, once favored the
Court and jury with "The Hoys of Kilkenny," tothe general delight.
The diving for the remains of the
Greek and l'ersian ships sunk in the
great sea fight at Salamis has caused a
flutter in arirhieological circles. Little
is known of the great galleyB with their
banks of ours of the ancient world. We
have descriptions presented to us in the
delightful gossip ol Athenn'iis of two
ships built hy Ptolemy I'hiiopater, and
one built by lliero, tyrant of Syracuse.
But the description is wholly of tlie interior. We read of rooms in these ships
with columns of Milesian cypress and
capitals of gold and ivory, of marble
statues of Venus, of purple hangings and
exquisite carvings, of gardens wiih trees
ana plants, and all varieties of bathrooms. Une of these vessels had forty-
banks of oars, but it is difficult to form
an idea of what they looked like externally from these descriptions.
Charles Kendo, apropos of the Belt
case, oilers an instance in the life of
Wiertz, the eccentric Belgian painter,
ol the fallibility of recognized art critics in reference to artistic work.
Wiertz, having rendeied himself personally obnoxious to the committee of
the Paris rSalon, and finding that, In
consequence, he could not hope they
would see artistic merit in any work of
his, obtained from a private gallery the
loan of an undoubted Hubens, a head of
Christ, end) procuring full evidence ot
its identity, boldly signed it in the presence of witnesseswith his name and sent
it, in for exhibition. It was rejected.
Wiertz then proclaimed the truth, to
the committee's discomfiture.
An extraoidinnrv general meeting of
the city authorities and representatives
was held at Odessa, in Hussia, on Feb.
23, convened for the adoption of special
measures in order to arrestthe alarming
mortality from diphllieriain Odessa.and
its environs. It is un indisputable fact
that this disease hns been, in a greater
or lesser degree, epidemic in that city
for the last twelve years. One of the
speakers, a physician and city representative, declared that the only thoroughly efficient means of arresting the
progress of the disease waB by the destruction by fire of certain surroundings
and domestic accessories.
Considerable excitement has been
aroused in the Jewish communities of
South Hussia by the appearance at Kis-
chineff nf an energetic reformer named
Joseph Hahiuovitch. He declares Christ
to have been the real Messiah, supporting his theories by numerous citations
from the Bible and the Prophets. Ka-
binovilch is an enthusiastic and eloquent preacher, and is winning numerous proselytes. He is anathematized
generally by the Jewish press.
The number of deaths from amesthe-
tics in England in 1883 was but 13. Of
these, 11 died from chloroform and
ether mixed and nitrous oxide. Dr. Jacob remarks that the deaths from nitrous oxide are now so rare that physicians hnve begun to look on it as without danger. In the case of death from
it above mentioned, the patient died
from syncope, as is usual In deaths from
chloroform.
Apropos of the proposition to erect a
memorial to Dickens, a correspondent
of a London daily paper quotes a passage
from the novelist's will which will probably prtife fatal to the project: ''I conjure my iiiends on no account to make
me the subject of any monument, memorial, or testimonial Whatever. 1 rest
my claim to the remembrance of my
country upon my published works."
Milan is specially privileged to carry
