I groaned, for about one part of ihis
statement there could be no doubt : it
was the Uo'npur temper tlmt had
brought on the i'livsiiit, anil as lean
didly believe that Sir'lohn acquired
tlmt temper to prove Ins deioeut Irom
tin- same illustrious line ns gave Chevy
Chase its hero, and Lord Douglas his
enemy, 1 am justified in my assertion
that his troubles began with his luune.
Amongst the troubles of Sir .lohn
there was one which seemed to ine as
real as bil relationship lo the Percys.
lie complained thai, all bis Mters did
not reach him, and he laid the blame to
his legal opponent. At lirst, he con-
■lulled that   they had an agent at    the
poBt office; then lie gave up this
crotchet for one as improbable, but  ai
least more plausible: tho agent was not
in the post office, but out of il ; and it
was his habit io waylay lhe postman,
and either bribe or drug him. as In-
might Iind moit  convenient j then ah
■tract Blr Johns letter - for this knowing agent never look but one letter,
though, of course, it was always the
right, one This explanation of his
losses, however had lo be given up as
well as lhe lirst; und Sir John's
third and last conclusion nil I lie snidest
aud most ominous of the three, so far,
at, least, as his pence of mind "as concerned: he declared that tbe agent wns
one of hia three female lervnnii. * 11 is
onlv mail servant James, was incorruptible; but Mrs. Green, ibe hbuie-
keeper, Ann, the cook, and Martha, the
housemaid, did UOt, unluckily, belong
to that immaculate category, They
were changed repeatedly—.Mrs. i Irw n
became Mrs. Long, Ann and Martha
turned into l'.lizauiid Mary, u Itrinnali
lock was adapted to tha letter-box; bi't
loiters- -important letters, laid Sir John,
ull referring to hii lawiuit—continued
to be lost, or, whal came to the same
thing, did not reach hiui.
I began lo feel staggered. Sir John
was positive, and though very angry, be
preserved u sort of calmness in hisnngiT
which was unlike Hotspur's wrath, nnd
helped tn shake my scepticism. There
could lie no harm, at least, iu Irving to
assist him out of ihii difficulty, and I
undertook to provide him with a
thoroughly reliable servant-girl, I ap
plied to my sister-in-law in the country,
a woman of strong sense and much
penetration. 1 lent her down an account of Sir John's predicament, and
begged of her to let us have a good,
sensible, and honest girl, if she knew
such a person in her neighbourhood.
Sir John preferred a girl from the
country. "It is the lover who ruins
everything," he said, "and the lover is
the "growth of time. If I can have
a fortnieht's fidelity, I shall bo well
pleased.' By return of post my sis'er-
in-law wrote: "I havegot-the very girl
you want; she is a heroine, neither
moro nor les«. She spent ten yeara in
my cousin's family, and saved their
youngest child from drowning by
her presence of mind. Twice the
house was attacked by burglars,
and twice Nelly displayed the
calmest courage. On one of those, occasions she was alone with the children
Her fidelity is beyond suspicion. 1

little voice.
Sir./olni looker! a! her.    Tee, there
wares ■ ot the line,   nn   that young
hoe, And. Ihougl it wasa young

markable face in its way: pale ami
resolute, with ilark eyebrows, and dark
_ eyes looking quittly at you from l»
! neoth their sroh. "What is your
name (' be asked, a little abruptly.
"Ellen Kelly, sir.'
Yes, she was Irish, and that was .i
drawback. Not that the prejudice
whicli forms a part of the traditionary
•lohn Hull found any room iu Sir John
Percy's mind ; but he had lieen jilled,
poor fellow, by nn Irish girl, who had
Ellen Kelly's eyes, and he considered
this coincident'.' uminous.     lie assured
in.' afterwards tbat if ii  had not been
for mv sister-in- law's sake, be would
have sent 1.Hon back forthwith I ha said
so, but 1 rather doubt  it.   I   have »
fancy that those eyes of hers were
pleasant to the good old bachelor—a
memento of his young days that had a
charm of its own.
"Well, I'.llen, he resumed after a
while, "1 have heard a good account of
you, and I trust you will justify it.
Though you are but a small thing to be

suspect neither the housekeeper nor
either of the two servants. 1 have
luid traps for them, and they have
come out of the snares white as driven
snow; therefore 1 have no right to
mistrust them; but I expressly desir
you to act with as much prudence as if
they were one and all bent upon sieal-
ing my letters. In short, you may bias civil and ns friendly ns you will,
but you are not to trust them. That
will not be pleasant, will it, eh?'
"No, sir: but, 1 knew as much hefore

In plain sp ill,   you   have   got a

"I do not deny it, sir," replied Ellin,
rather warmly* "we ari' to be married

to set up business on his o.in account."
"Quite right; but my object in put
ting all these questions 'oyou is simply
this: when your sweetheart writ's to

the letter, but simply to hand it over to
Ellen turned crimson. No, sbe
could not do that. She was very sorry
to disoblige Sir John, but she cniild
not do that.
"But my dear,"   he   argued, with a
smile,  "1 have not  the   least   wish to

Still Ellen demurred. Her letter
was her own, and it was plain that
Ellen wished to do with her own what
she pleased, and be subject to no one's
control But Sir John was firm, or, if
you like it, obstinate ; and, nftw some
hesitation, and with evident reluctance,

through much poverty ami sorrow;
with the little lister, who dung to ber
alternately kicking, or weeping as her
grief prompted; with the true-hearted
fellow who had loved her years so faith
fully—she had left them all for this
strange place, and this strange house,
and oh! when should she see theni again?
No' for six months, perhaps ; perhaps
not for a year. She hnd done all ilia'.
for n little money, tempted by sir John
Percy's libera) wages; but it was hard,
very haul, and Nelly felt it keenly.
Sh- also felt thr' change from the coun

they had, with iron railings guarding
them Nelly had been reared in a cottage, with green lielda around it.
She had been a servant in a pietty
villa standing in its own grounds. The
little town where ber lover lived bud a
garden and an orchard tu almost every
on'- nf its dwellings. And ihen the
lanes, the delicious hawthorn lanes,
where they bad walked together the
very day before this, with Nelly's Utile
sister Jane romping around them, and
filling her pinafore with buttercups and
daisies : these Ian s haunted poor Nelly
as she s.it and mended Sir John's stock
ings. Sliould she ever bear the nightingale sing again, OS il sang last, night
on thut lime-tree which smell so sweet?
Uut a post mans knock cam" ro the

th-w the dream lane, lime tree, nightingale and ail She went and opened
it: three letters were put iu her band,
and, dosing the dour carefully, N liy
went up with these letters to Sir John,
who happened to be within.
"All right," he said; "but I am afraid
ir is not ad right," he added, abruptly.

I'oor Nelly! she soon bud Othei
troubles besides those of separation and
remembrance, The housekeeper, the
cook antl lhe housemaid combined to
make ber lit'.- wretched. Mrs 1-ong
found fault with Nilly's s-\iin_-, and
was bitter on the subject of her darns
"There never had been such," she de
olared- Nelly felt ihis acutely, Remember hoi old and universal iiii ac
compli-hmenl. darning is, and then
imagine, if you can, what is it to be
singled out amongst all past and present
darners as the very worst of the lot.
It was enough to crush Nelly's spirit
for ever. The cook said nothing :
"Deeds, not wolds,' doubtless was her
motto ; bnt she made i a rule to make
Nelly eat what she disliked. Nelly
hated fat, and Nelly gm none but fat
meat! Nelly disliked Yorkshire pudding, and Yorkshire pudding became a
rule in Sir Jpbn's kitchen. The lui-ise
maid, too, would uot ba behindhand.
It had been her duly to receive the
letters and to attend to the door.
Not being now allowed to do the one,
she loftily resolved not to do the other.
But Nelly, who had been quiet hitherto,
and scorned to complain, now rebelled,
and showed some spirit. Ii was contrary to her instructions tp open the
door to anyone save the postman, for he
might come whilst she was showing a
visitor upstairs. She laid the case before Sir John. Hot spin Hew inlo a

A n ontb nnd a day had Nelly been
with Sir Jnllli wli'-l, the poslurili gSV<
her a packet of letters mm Doming.
N'-lly s b_i ar} beat as she loi.k-u-lat them.
Thine was one for her. It had the
S postmark     upon    it ;    besides,
Nelly know the  writing.     Now,   then
is a shy, delioati  Instinct  in  a  girl's
im-    ■ ]• - ling that makes lu-r wish to
hide what she is not ashamed of. Nelly
longed to slip ihat dear letter into net
pocket, and not let Sir John have a look
at it, But she remembered her pro
raise, and went op with it as well .1-
the rest. "Ob I one for you," ba suid,
detecting the still'round hand-writing
at once; "theres a good girl, I shall
not keep you iu pain: go down with it
ut nine." Nell obeyed. She hod a
warm impetuous little bear I, 1 suppose,
spite her calm face, for she was no
sooner oul on the staircase than she
broke the seal and read In r lover's
epistle. But alas! no dear, no glad,
home fragrance did that little sheet of
paper enfold : nothing came out of it
but dreariest and the sadde.t news.
Sir John had not got half through bis
lirst letter when the door of his study
Opened and Nelly luoke in upon him,
pale, distracted, and her open letter In
Inr band.
"I must go, sir," she cried, "1 must
go at once My mother is dying sire
is dying, dying."
She seemed le sides herself with grief.
Sir John took up the letter she had
dropped, and glancr- I over it. Y'S,
sure enough, Nelly's mother was dying,
and asked to see her daughter "once

-"Templeton is a blacksmith who owns a

. iiiitly Mr. Templeton waa working at his
forge, patting a new steel in a put. The
uew steel waa slightly burned iu the heating, and, instead of welding, flew in half a
dosen pieces. One piece struck the blacksmith just alxive the right eye with such
foroo as to fasten itself in li. mly The
blacksmith staggered and fell backward.
How long he waa unconscious he does not
know, but when he revived the dog lay
almost in the middle of tho shop crying
almost like a human being, and rubbing his
jaws in the duat of the flour. The piece of
ateel that haj struck Mr. Templeton lay a
short distance from the dog. The faithful
brute had seised the hot ateel with his teeth
and drawn it from the frontal bone of Mr.
Temple-oil's head. The dog's month was

The experiences of an aeronaut are iu,t
gained without some ha/aid ; to exaggerate
their inipTe.-iveiit-ft.-i wore iiii[Kissibie, und
for their sake u wise man might welt incur
even greater risks. As au illustration of this
1 recall the events of a September uight some
years since. The representative ot a new-ana p. r, who hud already made many ascents
with mc, was my companion on this uccusinu.
Wa nsceiiiled from tlur I irafton County Fair
rirunndsnt Plymouth, N.ll. A drizzling
ruin wus fulling as wc rose, and continued
through the night. It was a little after four
o'clock p.m. when wc entered tbe clouds. Ah
we continued to ascend a clear space wns
reached. Then we entered another cloud
stratum, from which we emerged ut '.be
height of two miles. Above us was still
another strutuin, but wu did not rise to ita
level. Shortly after, on descending into the
strata beneath, the dense fog about us be
came suffused with a roseate glow from the
setting sun. We could see nothiug save our
balloon and the aun-riuuding fiery cloud*
Se.irctdy nn hour had passed since starting
from Plymouth, when we begun to descend
through to lower clouds, with the view of
ascertaining our whereabouts. The descent
was stayed liy au unexpected obstacle, a projecting mountain peak, uud wc had to discharge ballast to clear it. A second attempt
was foiled in the same way. The two obstructions proved to be Mount .1-H'orson and
Mount AiluniH. Other mountains of the
White Mountain range had been crossed
while ut higher altitudes. At length, after
wc bad passed down through the lowest
stratum of cloud, houses were observed iu a
valley below, and in a few momenta were,
passed; then the great forest rolled beneath;
nnd no further sign of human habitation
broke the wild prospect. Nightfull found
us over the lake, and upon one of its bunks
we descried a cump-firc. Hallooing as
loudly us we could, to attract attentiou, we
soon observed a ciinoc darting out iuto the
lake with someone bearing a torch ; a man
bad evidently beard the call, and be was
searcning for us upou the water. To descend
it that point from thcclevution ut which wo
then stood was impossible, but after this experience wc wove tempted to suil low for a
while, and iu doing so the drag-rope came iu
c intact with tbo trees upon the aide of a
small mountain, and wus allowed to glide
over their tops until the crest had been
passed, Then, scttlitig down on the lco side
wc lay becalmed for half nn hour. A lauding could havo been effected hy means of the
drag-rope, but how should wc have escaped
t of thut wilderness ? Hundreds of miles
aivay to the north-east wc knew there were
Canadian habitations, but nur bullaat anonieil
totally inadequate for such n distuncc.
Nevertheless, ue launched our bark once
more into space, anil through the darkness
drifted on our way. How to economise our
sand ballast so that we might continue afloat
throughout the night with n momentous
question, for it w-ub not then known that
there wus any exception to ths rule of continual fluctuation of height. In rising,
therefore, only so much ballast, was discharged as barely sufficed, and consequently
the ascent waa very slow. Among the
olouds once more, there was sufficient light
to observe the lower- portion of the balloon
banging in limp folds. For hours wo watched
for the. time when there should follow a loss
of the buoyant power from overflow, nnd a
consequent loss of our precious ballast.
Sometimes the clouds beneath us would
break, revealing the inky depths below ; at
ttliers openings would appear above us,
•howlng the higher clonus, and once the
bright face of the inoou ; but the next instant the fog would close iu upon us again.
We were ever alert to catch sounds from the
earth. How welcome would have been the
bark of n dog, the crowing of a cock, or the
tinkle ofa cow-bell, but there waa one
monotonous sound nl fulling writers the
whole night through, relieved only by the
occasional mournful cry of a loon. There
came nt last a different sound, that of the
breaking upon a long lino of sandy beach.
Then it passed beneath our feet and seemed
In glide olf ill thn distance. It was presently
a fniiit murmur, und soon same absolute
stillness. Wo wore well out at sea. Mean
while a gradual descent hnd lieou made, until the swish of the diap-mpe win beard in
the water. There was no Immediate danger
but the situation w-ris not a pleasant ono to
contemplate, for, unless fortnno should
favor us with a return current, or drift us
toward some island or vessel, we stood a
good chance of lining lost. There was a
gray mist or fog between us and the water,
so that we had aa much light oa when wu
were in the clouds. Resting our nrme on
the edge of the car for half an hour or more,
we peered into the mist, when suddenly
appeared a black line stretched across our
pathway. Simultaneously we prepared to
seise it, whatever it might be, bat to our
astonishment we could not reach it. The
swish of the rope in the wntcr meanwhile
ussarred us that the balloon was in motion.
As we watched the line it grew wider and
wider, and then the fog slipped away from
under us, the drag-rope begun twitching
over tree-tops, und the inky-black forest lay
beneath us once more. Soon wo fouud a
shelter, where we lay until dawn of day.
Upon rising again we espied a road and,
having effected a landing near it, mode our
way to a neigh boring little plane, -.called
Savabec, near the tJulf of St. Lawrence, two
hundred and fiftv miles below Quebec. That
road was tho only one that lay across our
track tor hundred of miles. Very amusing
was the experience of Elliot in ono of hia
descents. He had ascended from Charleston on u summer aftornoon, and was carried
sin.i ly down the harbor, landing at last,
just at oightfall, on one of the islands.
There was to be a burying that night, and
the dead nugro, Dick by name, lay in a
cabin, while a dozen live ones sat outside
telling spook st'.rics, when Elliot dropped
down in front of thutn. There was a, yell, n
scramble, and in a moment all but ono had
disappeared ; be had been cangbt by the
aeronaut's anchor and dragged some distance, screaming piteously : "Oh, Mssss
Debil I Massa Dcbil ! I'se not do niggar I
I'ae uot do niggar I Dick's in dah I Dick's

On the Ninth .Saskatchewan River, in the
North-West Territory of Canada, about
seventy miles above tho town of Kdinonton,
Alberta, there is an interesting example of
naturally reduced iron. Along the river
bank a lignite foi mat ion orope out for several
miles, overlaid by clay shales aud soft
argillaceous sandstones containing nodules of
clay ironstone. These nodules are similar
to others fouud at Kdmontou, and proved by
analysis to be carbonates nf iron, containing
;H-!)H pur cent, of metallic iron. The Saskatchewan seam of lignito has at some time
or other been burnt, leaving a bed of nshes,
c'linkcis. nod burnt clay, in places 20 feet
thick, and uow covered by a dense growth
of grass and underwood. From this mans of
burnt, clay pieces of inetallio irou can be
picked out, weighing iu some cases 15 lbs,
or 20 lbs. Tbey have evidently been reduced ftom the nodules above-mentioned by
the beat of the burning lignite. Most of
the pieces of iron are much rusted ; hut
when scratched with a file they show a bright
surface. Tho observation is interesting, and
to some may help tn explain hnw primitive
man originally discovered the redttotinu of
iron ore. - K/nfeneeri,ii.i.
The i-p'-.r-ird committee appointed to consider the question of a new rifle foi the services have ^recommended for further trial
two out ol the numerous classes of weapons
.'iiliinitted to them-namely, the improved
Lee und the Lee-Barton magazine rifloa. A
quantity of thoBO arms have been ordered to
be made at Enfield, und thoy ore now taring
issued to selected men in this country,
whilst fifty rifles arc luring shipped tn India
for trial there. The committee nave decided
against the detachable inaga/aiii- system, and
In favor of a lived form of hopper or maga-
/.ino. They have fixed upon the bott form
of breech action, which requires two movements, a forward closing movement and a
side tmn for locking. In the improved Lee
the magazine is under the breech in front of
the trigger guard. It is an oblong iron receptacle, which holds Ave cartridge!. The
magazine is loaded from above through the
breech opening when the bolt is drawn, the
cartridges being pushed down into position
with the finger, where they ure held by a
aide spring. The magazine ia brought into
play by moving a aide catch, when, ou the
breech bolt being operated, they are Bushed
np into the barrel by a spring in the maga
zinc. The Loo-Burton magazine aim holds
five cartridges. This gun has a similar bolt
action to the Lee, the chief difference being
in the position of the magazine. Tlie Lee-
Burton magazine is uu the right side of the
rifle, and it is a modification of the old
detachable magazine, which, when pnt in
place, stood up about four inches above tbe
Martini breech. When not required for use
the magazine iB pressed down in a slot or
groove in which it travels up and down
about an inch. Whenever the soldier wishes
to draw upon his magazine reserve for rapid
firing he pulls up the little iron case ; this
brings it into position, snd as the breech-
bolt is opened a cartridge by force of gravity
rolls through a side oponing in the breech,
when it is driven into the barrel when the
bolt is dosed. Tbe magazine itself ia
loaded from the top by pushing to one side a
little cover plate and dropping the caitridgei
down. Neither of these gans can be loaded
and fired bo as to discharge more shots in a
minute that tho ordinary Martini-Henry.
The great advautage they confer is, that the
five shots in the magazine can be fired off at
the critical moment of an action with far
greater rapidity than is possible by the very
best form of single breechloader. The committee have discarded the Enfield
authorities' new wooden gun stooks, and reverted to the really serviceable familiar form
used on the modem Martini Henrys. A
hand guard of leather or canvas, however, is
to be provided to protect the men's hands

Au interesting match between three .novel iaU and a Ruuian trotter took place in
Vienna recently at tlie International Bicycle
Kaoes at the old exhibition building in the
Prater. The prize was 2,000 francs, ana tin;
distance 10,000 ineteri*, being forty tinier
round the course. Three bicyclibtn tool;
part iu it—Mr. Duncan, from London *. M.
Jules Dubois, from Paris ; ami M. Paul
Medinger, from Bordeaux. The RiiMsian
trotter, a handsome grey, belonged to I Itn
Stefan Tupau, of Vienua. After the second
round the bicyclists took the lead, and lim-1-
ly, after a nineteen minutes' race, tho homi*
was easily beaten : the result being a dend
heat between the two Frenchmen, The
ftecoud race, in which tho three previous
competitors ran again, was won by Mr. Ihin-
can, who cleared a distance of 1,000 nit-tors
in 1 nun. 52 sees.— Puhtirftjunhn.
A suecial correspondent of the Qlqsoow
Herald thus describes Winnipeg:—"What
is this wayward city like? To the carnal
observer it Is a street. Winnipeg ia Main
Street and Muin Street is Winnipeg. Vou
Blep out of the railway depot aud a broad,
smooth expanse meets your gaze. Can thin
be tbe prairie ? Yet uo; for what is that
line of buildings in the dim distance, like a
oity on the further shore ? That is the other
side of the street—you are in Main Street.
Seriously, it is a splendid thoroughfare, It
is about twice as broad an any street iu
Glasgow or Edinburgh, and in certainly better under foot tban any other street in thr
Dominion. A change has come over it in
the Utter respect since 1 was here two yearn
ago, for then it was literally a broad sea of
mud. The buggies wallowed up to their
aile-treea, the horse* waded up to their
knee*. Now it is as trim and smooth ss
Piccadilly itself. Unlike most Canadian
streets it haa a bend, and this adds grestly
to ita effect. At the bond has been left an
open space, and here stands that jndiactib-
able pile, the Town Hall. Architecturally
the building is a monstrosity, and yet it is
not umroposing in its way. t do not know
what to compare it to unless a Kreuchitied
Hindoo temple, if you ear. imagine such a
structure built of red brick and saudstonc.
In front of it stands the new monument to
the volunteers who fell in tlie recent half*
breed rebellion. At present the street is
lined with a somewhat neterogeneous assortment of buildings—tall, oubstantial blocks
of offioee, handsome shops, and wooden
shanties. It is also adorned with the never-
failing posts and cloud of telephone wirea.
When the shanties have disappeared and
the wires gone under ground, Main Street,
Winnipeg, will be one of the streets of tlio
world/'    .	
A correspondent of BradstreeTs writes that
experts are examining the saline springs in
the Red river valley, Manitoba, with the
view of determining whether it is possible to
make them remunerative. In boring wells
for water, the further down the operator
gets the more brackish the water becomes,
nnd' at one point ou the Red river, thirteen
miles above Winnipeg, a spring of brine runs
out the year round, never freezing even in
tbe coldest weather. Bnt a still more ie*
markable indication thut salt may be obtained in paying quantities in this very
neighlwrhood is found on the north hank of
the White Mud river, where, at a point near
Woods.de, briue of considerable strength
bubbles up in such quantities as to form a
constant stream two feet wide and four
ioches deep. Salt in large quantities ia a
necessity in these far inland regions, and if
it is found in paying quantities it will be a
great saving to the settlers, who already,
though the country is but sparsely peopled,
have annually io buy from the Ontario producers from llOO.OOO to $150,000 of the product. As the freight from Ooderich to
Winnipeg is $1.12 a barrel, and the salt is
retailed at 92.50, a good home market
would be swured from the  sUit.

as a now departure, and Mr. Switr-ler '!•'
serves.credit for it. According to the re
port, the tmal consumption of distilled
spirits in thin country for the fiscal year
ending June 30 amounted to 72,2ftI,OH

A recent notice in the Toronto (Jlot-e
informed the lieges that the C P. k.
( ii. were about tu apply to the Dominion Puikmeal for an act to legalise the
construction of the liranch fiom I'ort
MiK'ih hi Vancouver, by a subterfuge,
which is quite worthy of all their transactions in ihis ProvinOC and probably
elsewlicie. The application slates, wc

People at the cast, and particularly the
memben of Parliament, are quite ignorant of the relative positions ul Htm

niiltcd In lea;u   that   New Weslniinslei

company desire to take the whole .if the

the value of their lots, quite regardless
of the fact lhat Vancouver is naturally
unfit lor anything save llu- excuse Inr
•peculation, and that vested lights are
to be thrust aside, a whole community
mined, and public sentiment outraged,
in order that Ihis horrible monopoly
may make money out of the unwary.
lt has been suggested to us thai perhaps
ihe company intend to continue our
branch to Vancouver. This is perfectly absurd. They would noi be permitted to add a mile to the present New
Westminster line and no Parliament,
local or I lominion, will be permitted lo
over-ride every principle of justice and
decency to fosler a shameful speculation. The connection then, referred
to, must be over the illegal branch from
Vancouver to I'ort Moody and thenoe
by the line lo this eity, a distance of
twenty-three miles or more, with what
object) The traffic between the two
towns, might involve the traveling of a
dozen or perhaps, twenty, passengers,
in a day, which can be equally well accomplished by the stages now plying
direct and making the distance about
thirteen miles I This, Ihen, is not the
object the company are aiming at, by
this transparent pretense of connecting
these two towns ; it is to evade the law,
it is to get rid of the obstacles to the
fruition of their speculation at Vancouver, existing in their own charter. To
leaders of this article outside of lirilish
Columbia, the adoption of such a pallry
trick to accomplish their object-riding
over the rights and liberties of the ]ieo-
ple of this Province—wonld seem incredible ; the very inconsiderable sum
to be derived from the sale of lots al
Vancouver, would  naturally lie thought
beneath ihe notice of a company that
aspires to control the entire traffic on
the American continent. In ihis, however, such readers would be mistaken ;
the company are endeavoring while
reaching out for a billion, to squeeze
nit a penny wherever they can, be il
by the erection of hotels, grinding their
employees down to starvation wages, or
appropriating the lands of people who
may have the misfortune tn iiossess
property in any direction the company
may desire lo carry a S|,cculative
branch. Monopolies arc detestable
anywhere, but a cruel grinding monopoly like the Canadian Pacific Railway
Company, is worse than a plague. We
are accustomed to hear men like Jay
Gould and C. 1'. 11 unliiiglon denounced
as heartless monopolists, but wc feel
convinced lhat either of them would
despise the paltry tricks |>erpetralcd by
the C. I'. R. (Jo. or their agents, in this
Province, with the  object of gaining or
saving a little money. We have repeatedly pointed out that a very general
impression exists that there is some collusion between the Dominion (iovernment and the railway company, or, at
any rate, lhat some of lhe ministers are
directly or indirectly interested in the
affairs of the company. We do not
feel inclined to accept this conclusion,
because, such collusion would be a
heinous crime. The interests and welfare of the people are entrusted to the
ministers and that these men should
vilely lietray the confidence reposed in
them, is beyond belief, 'lliere has, undoubtedly, been a great deal of incau-
lion on the part of ministers which may
have arisen, during the late Parliament,
from the impunity offered by the very
large majority in favor of the ministry,
and which created the impression that
they could do no wrong. However
this may be, ministers would now do
well to exercise a little more prudence
in granting loans or conferring ' privileges on this railway company ; they
have declared themselves free from all
necessity for aid and profess to be doing
a firsl rate business. As the ministry
can have now, no more solicitude as to
the stability of the cnterpiise, they
should now direct their attention to the
furtherance of the jieoplc's interests in
connection wiih the railway. The people have paid many millions in money
and land for this railway, and it is now
time that they should have their share
of the Government's consideration. If
there is anything which should have
watchful care more than another, it is
the increasing tendency of a soulless
{monopoly like the Canadian Pacific
Railway Company to commit breaches
of the law wherever the public welfare
cimilicis wiih their particular interests.
Probably there never was a more impudently gross breach of the law than in
the extension of the line from Port
Moody tn Vancouver. Port Moody
na-. the terminus fixed ujion by law,
and the company were restricted from
making any extension, or in any way
altering the legal terminus. Yet, in order .to make money, they absolutely
made a line froui a railway that did not
lulling to theni, to a place which, they
assured the public, was the terminus,
ruining the owners of prnperty, pur-
liascd on the assurance of Sir Charles
I'upper, that Port Moody was th. terminus, and making a s|>cculative terminus- at a place in every way unsuitable.
I'he recognition of such an outrage on
law and justice by the (iovernment, or
the granting of the acl alluded lo in the
early |iart ol this article, wnuld destiny
all respect for, and all confidence in,
the present (Iovernment.
This way of forcing Parnell and his followers to show their hand, will greatly
strengthen the Government and enable
them to carry out any measures they
please for the pacification of Ireland.
Belief is very general that the present
discontent in Ireland is fostered and
| kept up by more assistance than that
obtained from America; the object
being to compel England to retain in
the Emerald Isle as many of her available troops as [xyssible. It will then,
lie the great object of the Government
as soon as the Crimes' Bill and the
Land Bill are passed, to force matters
to a head in Ireland and pacify the
country for a decade at least, in order
to free their hands for the great struggle
in Europe or Ihe east. Nothing is
more certain than lhat England will require all the soldiers she can muster
and she certainly can not afford to keep
them in Ireland.
There is undoubtedly a more uneasy
feeling in Europ.* at the present time,
and, sooth to say, there is every reason
for it. In h"ranee, in spite of every precaution on the part of the military
authorities, the preparations for a great
contest, going on, are pretty well known
ever) wheie. Although the Government
frowns at any public demonstration di-
reeled against Germany, they have not
been able to repress a good deal of expression in several large towns, where
the jieople were harangued by over-
zealous patriots, who urged them to go
straight to Berlin, and denounce Germany and Germans. No one can doubt
the strong feeling of hatred which exists
throughout France for everything Teuton, and which is simply the shadow of
coming events. The Germans, on their
part, are quielly massing troops near
the frontier and driving out of the conquered provinces —Alsace-Lorraine—
every one who is known to have, or who
is likely to have, a predilection for
Kranee. It is well known that both
France and Germany havo carried on
an extensive system of espionage and
they are trying, as far as possible, to
prevent it, but that is simply inqiossi
ble ; every movement of troops or war
material is known to both, and the information duly recorded. Some
Schnaebeles affuir or some unlucky contretemps, will ignite the war feeling and
then the contest will begin, lhe struggle will be a terrible one, because they
arc both ready for the fray and provided
•vith the most terrible engines of destruction. People, discussing a possi-
,le contest between Germany and Russia, have always referred lo Poland as
being the |iossible field on which a
great battle will be fought. It appear!
that Russia is fully alive lo this fact and
Russian Poland at ihis moment, is simply a great camp. It may be, if the
Muscovites get the best of the fight,
that t lerinan Poland might be lost to
the Kaiser, thus completely reversing
the general idea that kussian Poland
would lall to the Germans. There can
be no doubt, as being, according to our
opinion, part of a pre-arranged plan,
lhat both kussia and Kranee are pressing Germany pretty close, and, if war
broke out, an immense force on either
side would be thrown ujiuii her. Wc
may be sure that this is well understood
at Berlin and every precaution taken to
ward off the simultaneous blow. We
note that Lord Dufferin has gone to
Persia himself lo learn the true state of
affairs. He seems to have taken lhe
true way to propitiate the Shah and has
presented hini with an elephant covered
with silver trappings, llie object, of
course, was merely to smooth the way
to the knowledge of how the land lies
which will enable l_ord Dufferin to take
the proper measures to foil Russia in her
intended absorption of Persia. Whether
Lord I luflerin will be able to talk over the
Shah and induce him to accept an alliance with England, remains to be seen ;
but if Lord Dufferin achieves anything
k will be by giving higher bribes lhan
Russia, to the Shah's officers and the
lietty Persian princes, who are ready to
sell their country to the highest bidder.
In England the Coercion Bill, so-called,
occupies the front place in the public
attention and will continue to do so for
some time yet, although, we believe, it
will be ultimately carried; the new
l_md Bill, we think, will help to make
it palatable to a good many who are
now making wry faces at it, There
cannot lye a doubt of the determination
on the part of the Government to carry
the Crimes' Bill; and also, the intern
lion to make the Land Bill so liberal
tbat the professional agitators will be
reduced to declare for separation to
keep up anything  like a disturbance.

Mis Lordrhip to Mr. Corbould—Do you

Mr, Oorbonld    I do.
Mr, Bole quoted tin* law to show that the
evidence presented hy the priaonor waa
Worthlois, Insufficient, and «»i no value.
After ho committed the deed he said:—"1

It woul.I be surprising indeed if thia eaK«*

Offioers who hail no opportunity uf obtaining

which wa i supplied hy the priaoner hhnself.
Mr. Trew has not made insanity a speol ;l
study, ami what Dr, Bantley sayn is not
evhlenes that deserves especial notice. He
migbffsav of any man iu thfl room what he

To a juror-—The man did not appear

His Lordahlp, quoting Stevens —A delusion
on ono point is nut proof that a man is
generally insane.
Mr. Bantley, SWOrn -Hfl examined the
priaouer on Saturday. He went tu the jail
with Mr. Gorbcull.they met two other gentle-
men there, Mr. Mclnnes aud Mr. Mel.p-an.
Witness suggested to Mr. Corbould that he
.tin- witness) had no business there but Mr.
Corbould insiitteil on Ida staying. The prisoner was under examination by the Othert WO
tl iftoiv Witness listened and isked leave
to aak questions* Mr. Mclnnes agreed.
Witness asked several question, Mr. Mclnnes
nbjsetsd to one question asked by witness.
The answer ihe prisoner gave to u qucst'on
I ask ed was. "I cannot speak without permission.'1 Mr. i lorbould hail lnformed|ttia
witnesa thut he bad  directed the prisoner
not tu speak to any one without his consent.
When Mr. Oorbonld told ths prisoner tu
speiik he proceeded to tell his tale. He
talked of going from place to plaos and said
ho was driven out of each place by persons
who were trying to take away his character.
In Mexico particularly he got on very well
ln-i-au-ie he did not umlerstuud their Ian
.■■.ii.ic. He cau hear words spoken in a
lear voice close by him. Witness taiiiiut
lldorss the opinion of Mr. Trew. Witness
believes that prisoner is afiUcted with
melancholy or has feigned insanity very
well. Of his sanity Witness has grave doubts
buthe cannot aay ihat tim man is insane.
Melancholy M a rery dangerous sort of insanity. Witness cannot say whether the
prisoner ia or is nut in that condition.
Tti Mr. Atkinson -1 had a consultation with
the prisoner ami 1 may assure your lordship
it is very hard to understand bim. The
homicidal tendency in persons alllieted by
melancholy is not directed tonne person ouly.
Tin- patient may be resolved to kill 000 man
today and another man to-morrow. A man
nut suffering under one of these attacks
would ba lit to attend ta his own alVain, but
could not bs depended on.
John Costello, a Spaniard, sworn—He haa
lived with Shearer in a c-abiii the last four
months off and ou. Hu llOB been absent _.f>
laya. We used to play card--; he'd take up
his hat in the middle of thfl game and go ont
suddenly and walk up and down the track.
He used to say to witness "if you see me In
lit leave mo." He used tu act strange -in
such a way as 1 never saw any one aOt be
fore. He talked very foolishly laatTnea-i
day, just like a ablld.' He uaed to say thatj
somebody was hunting him ; bot he mentioned no name. We slept tugflther one
night he seemed to bs fighting with sums
body In his sleep and threw ms out nf bed.
Witness thinks the man ia insane. Witness
was a member of the asylum at Stockton,
and he'd know an insane person.

Thoy get spell* ami don't know what they're

iiier had not au SpsBptlO fit the night he
threw the witness out of bed.
A riiiuainan was put in the box—Ho
know*, nothing of swearing. He was never

Mr. Atkinson—Are yuu a christian ?
Witness—I never saw	
Mr. Atkinson- If your Lordship adjourns
the court BOW (tt o'clock.) I'll bave Dr.
Lyle here at 7 o'clock.
The court waa then adjuurned and at
seven o'clock the bearing of the case was resumed.
Charly the Chinaman, who never saw a
christian went into the witress box, and Dr.
Lyle talked to lum in Chinese. •«•: Itnaas dues
uot burn paper when be swears ; he breaks a
cup. Mi. Lyle suggested that the only way
to get the truth would be to threaten the
witness with punishment in case he lied. The
witnes.- smashed ■ OOp and was therefore
sworn. He's a cook ; he knows the prisoner
for six weeks ; he was a deck hand on the
steamer. When spoken to he would not
speak, and looked aa if lie feared some one
would catch him. The prisoner's name is
"Bill" he can read a newspaper. He'd take
a book and tear it up and shako his head
and look round then look at the book.
Mr. Atkinson — My Lord — SiimmoLS-s
have'been issued for two other witnesses, but
officer McBromn says he canuot find them.
1 believe these are important witnesses.
Mr. Wilson—I will he satisfied to have
them examined if they coma into court in
time.    I lielieve they are both drunk.
A constable—One of them is in cmut.
J, .1. McDonald, sworn—He lives in the
swamp. He knows the prisoner Bill and
saw him working mi the boat. Whenever I
looked at the man's face I thought hfl waa
cror.y. He'd never hold his bead steady,
and f said to myself that fellow is wrong in
Iks head. I sometimes had whiskey and
treated the boys. "Bill" did not drink but
he'd shake hia"head when he'd see us drink
ing ami aay that'* niee amusement boys.

This is a summary of the presentment

nut sec ll'irris, but he saw Kreiind, Witness
heard that day at L%<lnei-'s tlu.t Harris hud
11.*. nod a money letter from Victoria.
Witness will sweur positively that he was
imt in Harris's house that Friday. Harris
and the witness had an uld standing fund.
Harris treated him veiy badly, Harris was
qttite    willing   to .swear   iu bi.s   own    favor
againat witness, and witness auspeotejil that
Karris had taken tho documents which
secured fur him the 00 acros, taken wrongfully. Witness did say that Harris turned
like a reptile after he had been assisted tn
his poverty by witness. Ho was au avari-
ceons man and did no'., care how be got
money. Witness believes Harris was an
nnjustmaOj they did not like each Otlier:
there was nn love lost. Witness was ar*
rested twu*.! on tho charge of murdering
Karris ; bis memory is middling good but he
does not remember when he was arrested on
this charge. Witneas was ucreated the
second time 1-ecatue he was running away.

between the witnesa and McFarlond. Wit-

He offered toeell tbo 8500. mortgage bht

lawyer to take. Witness has no property

He travelled over the trail from Crawford's

One of the prisoners is a Frenchman, the
other a German. Crawford was dincbarged

If you can believe that statement you cui-
vnt thu nrtsonara. The counsel for the
prisoner asked Cmwford did yuu know that
EUrrfs got money at Ladner's tbat Krhiay,—
IraWford answered-l did. Now 1 ask h»w
lid tho counsel fnr the prisoners discover
thut Harris did pet monoy from Victoria
that dsy ! Crawtonl did not like liaviisand
that is the POUOH why Crawford did not go
to the impM-st. Tim evidence of McKarland
establishes tho iimncunce of Crawfortl.
Harris wove bis liest clothes at Ladner's that
fiiday, it ia suggested to you that he was
mantel ad that arenlngi but his dead body
was not in the new suit and therefore 1
venture to say he waa not murdered on Friday night. Crawfortl may have lied but 1
believe that McKarland told thfl truth, and
... accounts fm the manner iu whieh Crawford spent bis time on the three days that
followed the Kriday. No evidence has been
proaeiitcil to show how the prisoners apent
their time on these three days. The only
person nn the face of the earth who could
prove that the prisoners are not guilty is the
Indian Woman who lived with one ofthe
prisoners and was discharged from prison a
few day a since. It is true ahe was in this
court when the trial commenced. Now why
lid not my learned friend produced her lit
the witness box "' Joe L-e told Mrs. Sullivan that there was a bruise on tbo aim of
Hanis—the arm was nut stripped by the
coroner. How did Lpc know tbat the aim
was bruised.
Tho learned counsel resolved to prove that
the wounds were intlicted by n man who
held the axe with the right-hand foremost,
took Mr. Moresby into oourt and in presence
of the jury held the axe with his left-hand
foremost illustrating the cut that would be
made by an axe iu the hand of a man who
held it with his right-hand foremost. It
was strange that Lee looked through the c it
hole before he met McDonald, did not tell
him at once when they met that Harris was
killed. He merely said there is something
the matter with the old man. It has been
proved to yon that the prisoners said -the
old man must have fallen into the dyke.
But it is remarkable that -.hey did not look
fur his   body.      The  learned  counsel eou-
