CHrrrriKc 1'inl four will be at your door
to-morrow morning, between nin« and
ten o'clock, for lhe purpose of conveying you down to my house, about ten
miles from town, where your services
are required. Let me implore you not
to permit any engagement—Bhort of
life or death—to stand in the way of
your coming at the time and in the mode
1 have presumed to point out. Your
presence, believe me, is required on
matters of special urgency, and, you
_*iiL.J_l*rmit me to add. of special con-
fidence. I may afatV, in
the sole object of your visit is Lady
Anne. I shall, if possible, and you are
punctual, meet you on thn road, in
order that you may be, in some measure
prepared for Ihe duties that will await
you. I am, &c , &c.
Henry 11.\ 111.1:11 ni.
"P. S —Pray forgive me if I say I
have opened my letter for the sake of
enire,ting you not lo apprise anvbody
of the circumstance of my sending for
This communicat on threw me into
a male of conjectures. I apprehended
that the ensuing morning would introduce me to some Bcene of distress; and
my imagination could Buggest only
family discord as the occasion. I Boon
made the requisite arrangements and
when the morning came, without having shown my wife the baronet's letter,
or giving her any clue to my destination,
jumped into the pea-green chariot-anI-
four the instant that it drew up at my
door—and was presently whirled oul of
town at tho rate of twelve miles an
hour. I observed thai the panels of the
riagc had neither crest nor supporter.-i;
and the color was not that of the
baronet'.. I did not meet lhe baronet,
aa his letter led mc lo expect. On
teaching the park gates, which stood
open, the groom behind leaped down
lhe instant lhat the reeking horses
could be Stopped, opened the carriage
door, and, with a respectful bow, informed me that tho I aronet begged I
would alight at the gates. Of course 1
acquiesced, and walked up lhe avenue
t < the 1 nu rr, full of amazement at th ■
apparent mystery which was thrown
about my movement. 1 ascended the
spreading steps which lead to the hall-
door, and even pushed it opened without encountering any one. On ringing
lhe bell, however, an elderly and nol
verv neatly dressed female luncle ber
appearance, and asked me, with a respectful curtsy; whether my   name  was
"Dr. ."    On being answered in lhe
affirmative, sho said that Sir Henry
was waiting for me in a room adjoining
anl iuimcrlialely led the way to it I
thought it singular etioiigl. that no male
domestic should have hitherto made his
appearance knowing tliftt in town Sir
Henry kept an unusually large retinue
of 6uch gentry. I thought also that I
perceivid something unusual, not only
in the countenance anil manner of tire
female who had answered my summons,
hut of lhe groom who attended me f.oni
town. I was soon, however, in the
presence of the baronet. The room
was spacious and lofty, anrl fu'nislicd in
a style of splendid elegance. Several
busts, statues, and valuable paintings
graced the comeii and sidea, together
with a noble library, containing, T ahould
think, aeveral thousand volumes. Before I hail limn to oast more than a
cursory glance around me, Sir Henry
issued fiom a door at the further extremity of Ihe library, and, advancing
hastily to me, shook me by the hand
cordially. He wore a flowered green
velvet dressing-gown, and his shirt-
collars wero open. I thought I had
never Been a finer figure or a moie expressive eountennnce—the latter, how-
evrr, clouded with mingled sternness and
"Dr. ," aaid he,   conducting me
to a seat, "I feel greatly obliged by this
prompt attention to my wishes, which
however, I fear must have inconvenienced you. We are at breakfast.
Have>o« breakfasted!"
"Yes; but my drive has sharpened
my appetite afresh, I think I could not
resista cup of chocolatp or coffee."
"Ah, good! I'm happy to hear it.
Perhaps, then, you will permit me to
take a turn round the garden, and then
we will join Lady Anne in the breakfast-room!" I assented. There was
something flurried in his manner and
peremptory in his tone. I saw there
was something .hat agitated him, and
waited for the denouement with interest.
In a moment or two wo were walking
together in the garden, which we had
entered through a glass door.
"Doctor," said Sir Henry, in a low
tone, "I   have sent   for you on a mos,t
melancholy  errand    to-day "   he
seemed agitated, and paused—proceeding, "I have infinite satisfaction in being able to avail myself of your services
for I know that you are both kind and
experienced—as well as confidential?"
Again he paused, and looked full at me.
I bowed and he resumed:
"Possibly you may have occasionally
heard surmises about Lady Anne and
myself! 1 believe we bave occasioned
no little speculation latterly." 1 smiled
and bowed off his inquiry. "I am conscious there has been some ground for
it," he continued,   with a sigh,   "and V
now find the time is arrived when all
must be known—I must explain it all
to you. You have, J believe, occa
sioually met us in society, and recollect
her ladyship!"
"Several times, Sir Henry, and I
h,ve   a  distinct   recollection   of   hei
Indeed "
"Did it ever stiike you that there was
anything remarkable either in hei
countenance or dr pertinent?"
I looked at a loss to understand   him.
"I—1 mean—did you ever observe a
certain peculiarity of expression   in her
features!" he continued earnestly.
"Why—let me see—I havi- cerlain'v
observed her exhibit languor and
lassitude—her cheek has been pale,
and her countenance now and then
saddened with anxiety. I supposed,
however, there was the usual mode ol
accounting for it, Sir Henry," I added
r ile. Tlte baronet's face w rs
clouded for a moment, as if with dis
pleasure and anxiety.
"Ah"—he replied hastily—"I see—
I understand you—but you are quite
mistaken—totally so. I'ray, is that the
general supposition!"
' Why—I am not aware of it's being
expressed in so many words; but it wis
one that struck me immediately—as a
matter of course." As I was speaking
I observed Sir Henry changing color.
"Dr. ," said he, in a low agitated
voice, grasping my arm, as if with
involuntary energy—"We have no time
to lose. One word—alas, one word—
will sxplain all. It is a horrible torture
to me—but 1 can conceal it no longer.
Vou must be toi J the truth at once.
Lady Anne is —insane\" He shook
with agitation. Neither of us spoke
for a moment 01 two—except that I almost unconsciously echoed the last word
he ultcred. "Insane! —Why, 1 can
scurcely believe my ears, Sir Henry.
Do you use lhe last word in its literal
—its medcal sense!"
"Yes, I do!—I mean that my wife is
mad—-Yes! with a madwoman you are
asked to sit down to  breakfast,    I can
assure  you, Dr.  , that the anguish
I have latterly endured on this horrid account has nearly driven me to the same
condition! OOodl What a dreadful
life has been mine for tho last year or
two,  as I have  seen  thia   tremendous
calamity gradually befalling me "
1 implored him to restrain his feel
"Yea—you are right," said he, after a
pause, in which he tried to master his
amotion—''I huve re-overnd myself.
Let us repair to the breakfast room.
For Heaven's sake, appear if you can—
is though nothing had transpired between us. Make any imaginable excuse you please for coming hither. Say
you were died in by me on my own
account—for—for—any complaint you
choose to mention. It will bo for you
to watch poi r La.lv Anne with profound
attention—but of course- not obvi 'U-ly.
I shall take an opportunity, as if by
chance, of leaving you alone with her.
Afterwards wo will concert the steps
necessary in this dreadful emergency.
By the way—you must not expect to
see anything wild or r x ravagant in her
manner. She will not appear evni
ecc ntric—for she is very guarded before strangers. "Hushl" said he,
shaking and turning round palely—
''did you hear—no, it was a mistake!
Alns, how nervous I am becomel I
have perfect control over her—but
watch her eye—her mould—her eye"—
Ire shuddered —' and you will know all.
Now, doctor, for mercy sake don't commit yourself, rr me!'1 he whispered, as
we regained the 'room we had quitted.
lie paused for a moment, as if to expend
a heavy sigh—and ihen, opening the
door thr ugh which he had originally
entered to receive me, UHhered mc into
the bieakfast-room. lady Anne—
beautiful creature—in a white morning-
dress, sat beside the silver urn, a-rpar-
ently reading the newspaper. She
seemed surprised at seeing me, and
bowed poMtely when Sir Henry
mentioned my name, without moving
from her Beat. Her cheek was very
pale—and there was an expression of
deep anxiety—or rather apprehension—
in her eye, which glanced rapidly from
me to Sir Henry, and from hiin to me.
With all his efforts, Sir Henry could
not appear calm—his cheek waa flushed
his hand unsteady—his voice thick—hia
manner flurried.
"Aie not you well, Sir Henry!" inquired his lady, looking earnestly at
"Never better, love!" he replied, with
an effort at smiling.
"1 fear I have disturbed your ladyship in reading the Morning Post," said
I, inteirupting an embarrassed pause.
"Oh. not at all sir—not lhe least!
There is nothing in ii ot any interest,"
sbe replied with a faint sigh, "I was
only looking, Henry, over a silly account   of the   Duchess of    's fete.
Do  you   take   breakfast!"    addressing
"A single cup of tea, and a slice of
this tongue, are all I shall trouble your
ladyship for. Talking, by the way, of
fetes," I added carelessly, "it is whispered in the world that your ladyship
had taken the veil—or—or—died; in
short, we aie all wondering what has
become of your ladyship—lhal is both
of youl"
"Ah!" said tbe baronet with affected
eagerness, "1 suppose by the way, we
oome in for our share of hint and
inuendol Pray, what ia the latest
coinage, doctor, from the mint of scandal
and tittle-tattle!"

' Indeed, docroi, I am not! I am

"Of ennui," interrupted the baronet
quickly, Sxing an Impwmtiw wye upon
llil Inrly, I saw with what nervous apprehension, lest she should atl'rinl even
iln- il.-.iiaal corroboration of what he
had trrl.l lire ill tin; gurd.-n,
"V. I, )cs, ennui," she replied timidly
ridding, with a sigh, "1 wonder the
world remembers us so long "
"1 have a not,' to write, 1II>ctor," said
the baronet suddenly, after the lapse of
aboul live or ten iniiiii-cs, treading at
the same time gently on iny foot,
"which I intend to beg you will carry
up to town for me. Will ynu excuse
me for a few moments!' I bowed.
"Lady Anne, I daresay, will entertain
you fi,,1,1 the Morning Post    ha! hu!'
Sin- smiled faintly. I observed Sir
Henry s eve fixed upon her, as lie shut
he door, with an n::pre sion of agoniz
ing apprehension. The reader may
imagine the peculiar feelings of embarrassment, with which I found myself at length alone with Lady Anne.
I Icing ignorant of the degree or species
of bar mental Infirmity, I felt much at
t hi" how to shape my conversation.
As fur ns one oould judge from appearances, she was as perfectly sane as I
considered myself. I could detect no
..ocontneity of deportment — nothing
but an air of languor and anxiety.
"Sir Henry is looking well," said I
as he closed the door.
"Yes he always looks well; even if
lie were ill, he would not look so."
"I wish [ could sincerely compliment
vou ladyship on your looks," I con-
i.iiiiicil, eyeing tier keenly.
"Certainty I have boon better than I
am at present," she replied, witli a
sigh—"what I Dave to complain of.
however, is not so much bodily ailing
as lowness nf spirits."
"Your ladyship is not the first on
wh.iii a sudden seclusion from society
had similar elfecfs. Then, why not return to  town -at, leant   for a season?'
"Then: ore—reasons —why 1 should
at present prefer to continue in retirement," she replied, dropping her eyes
to avoid the stearlfast look with which
r ,'AOTrdeH thorn
"Reasons'.—permit me to ask your
ladyship the import of such mysterious
terms!" I inquired, with gentle earnestness, drawing my chair nearer to
ir, believing tliut tbe ice was at length
"1 am not aware,   doctor," said slur,
Idly, and with an air of rather
haughty surprise, "that I said anything
that oould be called mysterious.''
"Pardon, pardon mo, my lady! I
was only anxious lest ynu might have
any sis-ret source of anxiety preying on
your mind, and from whieh I might
have the power of relieving you.
Pnrmi me to say, how deeply grieved
1 am to see your ladyship's altered
looks. I need iir.l disguise the fuel
that Sir Henry is exceedingly anxious
on your ueeount "
"What! what! Sir Henry anxious—
on iny account!'' she repeated, with an
air of astonishment; "why, can it then
be possible that 1 am tbe object of
your present visit, Dr.  1'
I paused for a moment. Why should
I conceal or deny the   fact, thoughl   I
"Your ladyship guesses aright. Sir
Henry's anxieties have brought ine
hither this morning. He wishes mc
to ascertain whether your ladyship
labors under indisposition of any kind. '
"And pray, doctor," continued her
ladyship, turning pale as she spoke,
"wiint does he imagine my complaint
tobe? Did he mention any particular
"Indeed he did lassitude—loss of
appetite—lowness of spirits. '
She raised h'r hand kerchief to her
eyes, which, glistening with tears, she
presently directed to the window as if
she dreaded to encounter mine. Her
lips quivered with emotion.
"Dear lady, for Heaven's sake be
calm! Why should you distress yourself?" said I, gently placing my fingers
upon lier wrist, at which she started,
withdrew her hand, looked me rather
wildly full in the face, and bursting
inro tears, wept for some iiiomeiils in
"Oh,   doctor  !" nt   length   she
sobbed, in hesitating; passionate accents—"you cannot—you cannot imagine how very ill I am -here," placing
her hand upon her heart. "1 am n
wretched, a miserable woman! There
never lived a more unfortunate beii._!
I shall never, never be happy again!'
she continued, vehemently.
Come, come, your ladyship must
make a confidant of me. What, in
Heaven's name, can be the meaning of
all this emotion? No one, sure, can
have used you ill? Come, tell me all
about it!"
"Oh, I cannot—I dare not! It is a
painful secret to keep, but it would be
dreadful to tell it. Have you really no
dea of it! Has it not, then, been
openly whispered about in the world!'
she inquired eagerly, with much wild-
ness in her manner.
Alas, poor Lady Anne! I had seen

ghiK.-e of scrutiny at his lady and ML
and then went up to her anil kissed
her tenderly, without s|»akii.g. What

moment I I saw by his manner that
he desired RM t(r rise und take my
leine; and, after a few words 00 dilb-r
ent subjects, I rose, bowed to her
ladyship, and, accompanied by the
baronet, withdrew.
"Well, urn 1 right, or wrong, doctor,
in my terrible suspicions!" inquired tbe
baronet, bk  "fin much  disturb...I,
and trembling from head to foot, as
we stood together in the large bow
window of his library. I sighed and
shook my head
"Hid she make any allusion to the
pro-cat arraugeme.i. I have been
obliged to adopt in the houik*?"
1 told him the substance of what
had passed between us. He sighed
profoundly, and covered his eyes for a
moment with his hands.
"is her ladyship ever violent?' I inquired.
"No—seldom—never, never! I wish
she were! Anything—anything to
dissipate the horrid monotony of mel
ancholy madness—but I cannot bear
10 talk on the subject. I can scarcely
control my feelings!" He turned from
ine, and stood looking through the
window, evidently overpowered with
grief. For a minute or two neither of
us spoke
'The dreadful subject forces itself
upon us," said he suddenly, turning
again towards ine. "Doctor, what, in
Heaven's name—what is to be done in
this tremendous emergency? Let
our first care be to prevent ex
posure. I suppose — a temporary
seclusion, I (UD afraid, will be neoeu
ary?" he added, looking gloomily at me.
1 tolrl htm I feared such a course would
certainly be advisable; if not even
necessary; and nssrirred him that lie
need be under no apprehension on thai
score for thero wero many admirable
retreats for such patients as his unfortunate lady, where privacy, comfort,
amusement, and skilful surveillance
were combined, I told him not to de

"Oh, doctor1" he groaned, clasping
his hands vehemently together, "the
maddening thought that my sweet, my
darling mitts, nuiat be banished frmn
my bosom from her home—from her
child—and become  the inmate of—of
—a "     He   cased   abruptly.    A
wild smile shot across his features.
"Doctor," said he, lowering his tone
a faint whisper, "can I trust you
with a secret? I know I am acting
imprudently unnecessarily disclosing
it but I
I bowed, and   listened ill   breathlss

head to foot as he went on. I hail
ireen all along the dupe of a MADMAN.
His eye was fixed upon tn
devilish expression, The
prived me of utterance
most of sight and hearing. I was
startled back into consciousness by a
loud laugh uttered by the bnonet. He
was pointing nt me, with his arm anil
fingers extended, almost touching my
face, with an air of derision. The
dreadful troth flashed all at once upon
my mind. I could now understand the
illness   tin- melancholy of Lady Anne
whose blanched countenance, looking
through the half-opened door, caught
my eye. at that moment, as 1 happened
to turn in the direction of thirlir-ak-
fust room. I trembled lest the madman
should alio see In r, and burst into

tone of voice nnd manner; and though

deadly pale when the shocking dis

But the mere money it will produce is

Th« four engineers employnd to in

employed by the State to amuBe the
brainless multitude who pay taxes.
They have not linished the sham inspection, hut we can write their report.
The syndicate would not be served l.y
taking the road, beoause it would M
useless for nine months to co.ne. It
would not Buit tho (Jovernuient to take
it now and keep it idle for nine months,
Itecause the people might say, 'Ynu
sliould have been ready to use it as
soon as it was finished." It suits Onderdonk to have the road on hand fnr
nine months to come, and continue to
levy fares and freight on the unfortunate 'freemen" who are known as
British subjects along the line. Therefore the engineers will report as follows:—"The road is not completely
finished; Onderdonk must put iu proper
switches at tho Port Moody terminus;
he must remove five rotten ties, and
strengthen a weak bridge." That is a
short extract from the engineers report
- not jpet written. In njr-e months from
this date the Government will accept
the road, pay Onderdonk a handsome
sum for extras, and charge the interest
on the millions invested to the account
of that patient, brainless, important
nobody, better known as—the taxpayer.
At New Westminster, last week,
they had a gabbler called Graves, who
called himself The Evangelist. He
handled the Holy Book like an infidel,
and did all he could to make Ohris
tianity look like a comedy. But ignorant persons suppose that he is a
faithful shepherd and that he serves
the Lord. May the Lord deliver His
people from all ignorant ranters.
On Monday evening a man who
keeps a saloon in New Westminster
went into another saloon and fired a
shot to scare the bar-tender. Before
he did the shooting he took a handful
of notes from his pocket, and holding
them up in his hand, declared they
would save him. And it is quite possible they did. Pistol practise at the
liar will not lie tolerated in this British
Province. A thorough-bred Briton
would be ashamed to shoot at an unarmed man. The practise is currish
and "cowardly.
Tlio local Government, who hold
several thousand acres of the people's
property in trust for a syndicate of
land-grabbers at Victoria, hnve given

On Wednesday last the Scottish
clans were represented at New Westminster. The Stuarts, the Campbells,
the McGregors, and several other gal
rant clans had descendants on the
jjnunds, tossing tbe cabre, pitching the

"When each his utmost strength had shown,
Tbe Douglas rent that earth-fast stone
From its deep bed, then heaved it high,
And sent the fragment through the sky,
A rood beyond the farthest mark,—
And still, in Stirling's Royal Park,
The grey-haired sires who know the past,
Tu strangers point the Douglas cast,
And moralise on the decay
Of Scottish strength in modern day."
All the London society journals ap
plaud the Princess of Wales because
she doopped the social axo on the neck
of that beautiful butterfly commonly
called Mrs. Langtry. At tho Oooiuhe
House, where lady Campbell and hnr
pastoral players wero giving their last
performance of "The Faithful Shep
herdesse," the Prince of Wales entered
into conversation with tho Lily, antl
plucked the Princess by the sleeve,
after saying to Mrs. Langtry in a loud
voice, "Oh, the Princess would like to
tell you —" The Princess turned
round, and surveyed Mrs. Langtry as
if she was not there, and gave so slight
a bow, that the inclination of the head
was imperceptible, and Ihen deliberately turned hor back on the tarnished
Lily. Every honest woman in Eng
land thought that was a graceful, keen,
well deserved cut.
The latest telegram from London
says:—"Peace with Russia is assured.
Lord Salisbury is in France, but to him
the Russian ambassador sends every
day a very long telegraphic despatch
in cypher, and the Foreign Office has
in twenty five days despatched twenty
special messengers to his lordship with
important correspondence referring to
the boundary line. It is rumored here
that Bismarck is resolved to get possession of Cuba and hopes to make
terms with the United States if Spain
consents to sell, but statesmen say the
United States will never permit Germany to take possession of Cuba. Bis
marck hopes that he will be able to
involve the United States in the great
European conflict which all statesmen
gee is inevitable."
The home Government have received
from a special agent at Constantinople,
information that Russia bas, on the
29tb of August, mode overtures for an
alliance with Turkey, holding out the
Balkan passes and fortresses as a guarantee  of  good  faith.     The   Turkish
MinisU-rs are divided on the question.
The minority say "it is safer to trust
to the honor of England."

Th'' widespread publicity given by
the authorities with reference to tin-
transportation of coin is severely criti
cir.ed by tli.- press. Eleven millions in
gold have lately arrived in Kan Fran
cisco from New York; the knowing

not stolen, and say the system of transportation is an invitation to thieves; it
reminds sensible men of the old story
told of the detectives who went hunt

Admiral Lynch of Chili has offended
the authorities nt Washington. He has
an excellent ship, the Esmeralda, built
in England; and more than once, within the last six months, he has snubbed
American officials. But there is something coming up very soon that will
test tho mettle of Lynch. The most
important mercantile firm in Peru is
American. It is the house of Grace &
Co. For years they have monopolized
a commerce that is profitable. The
h"ad of the firm is now the Mayor of
New York. During the war between
Chili aud Peru there was great damage
done by Chili to the property of Grace,
who was obnoxious because he stood
stoutly by the Peruvian Government,
and supplied it with war material
Grace has a largo claim for damages
and will present it within a few weeks,
but ho expects it will be contemptuous
ly refused. He will then invoke the
power of the United Sthtes, and it is
absolutely necessary that tho President
should stand well with the Mayor of
New YoWc. The American Minister
to Chili is Wm Roberts, an Irishman
who was a great Fenian head-centre
twenty years ago, and the bosom friend
of Gruce It is well known that he
will use all his influence to snub the
Chilians; and, therefore, it is a very
pretty quarrel as it strum's. Grace,
Lynch and Roberts are three Irishmen,
and if they do not manage to make a
good cause for quarrel every one con
cerned will be surprised. One thing is
perfectly certain—the United States
should have one good war ship afloat
before Roberts attempts to bully

much bad whiskey, and then went out
on tlie street and commenced to shoot
with his pocket pistol. He wounded
six unoffending persons, and then shot
himself. The citizens held a public
meeting and declared "it is the duty of
every citizen to kill any man who presumes to point a pistol at another." It
ia quite possible that the cowards who
carry pistols in Indianapolis will button
up their hip pockets.
Charleston, S. 0., was struck by a
cyclone on Monday morning, and one-
fourth of the houses in the city were
unroofed and ruined. The damages are
estimated at two million dollars, and
the work of restoration was commenced
next morning. A schooner was blown
out of the water across the railway
track. On Sullivan's Island the storm
was terrific and the whole Island was
submerged for an hour.
At Spokane Falls, on Wednesday, a

before the body could be extricnted.
He begged the bystanders to kill him,
but he lingered in great agony for ten

"to arms," and in an hour seven of the

The approaching war, which we con
ceive to be inevitable, is not the mere
desire of conquest, or the rivalry that
haa been the cause of wars in former
times, or any dynastic question: it is
simply the growth of that ugly wen—
Socialism—which is sapping the roots
of good government and threatening
the existence of order, and with it,
social and moral law. It ia of no use
to disguise the facts; immorality and
vice in their most hideous forms are
everywhere on the increase, and this in
the face of the undoubted fact that
churches, preachers, missionaries, blue-
ribbon societies, revival meetings, salvation armies, and all the other agencies which modern ideas of religion
produce, are advancing in numbers
unprecedentedly. How shall we account
for this state of things? Are the doctrines preached less efficacious than
they formerly were? This last question
we are inclined to answer in the affirmative.    Tn   years  gone   by  preachers
were men of education, and the great
majority were sincere servants of God.
Now the preaching profession is re
duced to the level of an ordinary trade.
Education is not nucessary, logic is
superfluous and polite language a luxury too refined for ordinary use. The
successful preacher of the present day
requires only a loud voice, the tart
of a strolling actor for making hits,
and a keen scent for the dollars. With
these peculiarities constantly thrust before a man of intelligence, he cannot
avoid tbe natural conclusion that lliere
is nothing divine aliout modern religion,
and if he is too intelligent to bMO-M a
freethinker, he does not go to church
unless driven thereto by worldly prudence or the prospect of pecuniary
gain. Can anyone be surprised at the
increase of Socialism or the shockingly
lax state of public morals? If one desires to sec what remains of real piety,
respect for par-nts and strict Boeial
propiiety, he mus' seek them in retired
spots where the modem preacher rarely
penetrates and where dynamite is unknown. Tho truth is, that for want of
some disturbing influence, society has
become like a stagnant pond: it has
given birth to all kinds of nasty rep
tiles and much putridity; it must be
stirred up by the influence of a great
war and sweetened by adversity. The
masses have acquired just sufficient
knowledge by means of free schools to
swallow greedily the trashy productions
of worthless writers who cater to the
popular taste in cheap periodicals, and
Radical papers which inculcate what
they are pleased to call freedom of
thought—simply irreligion and opposi
tion to law and order. These, with the
addition of the harangues of discon
tented demagogues, ripen into Social
ism, Anarchism, Fenianism, Nihilism
and Anarchy. In Europe the mischief
is not confined to the lower classes.
The roads to wealth,or oven a comfortable existence, are now so densely packed that but few reach the goal in the
fierce strugglo to get on, and consequently the broad and legitimate way is
deserted for the by-paths of a discreditable character, by which progress is
supposed to bo easier, but most frequently, end in an aimless and viciou.s
way of existence. The mind and manners aro defiled, and their influence
at last find their way into what is sup
posed to bo good society. Rome had
arrived at this state of lax morality
when Hannibal arrived before its gates,
and he, no doubt, was   the servant   of
riovktiance    III    Ollllglllg     tilt;     Roman
people back—for a time, at least—to a
sense of propriety. France had reached
a similar stage when the great Napo
leon brought back his country, after
much bloodshed, to its normal state
Narions must retrograde if they are not
advancing: immobility is impossible;
and although the eye and ear may be
deceived by apparent progress in science and art, tho movement is only
superficial: the great body of the nation is depreciating for want of action
It is in this way that, failing any
healthy movement lo evoke the true
instincts of the people, the minds of
the masses are prepared to receive tin-
false doctrines of evil-disposed men,
and the worst passions are fed and fos
tered. Nothing but brute forco and
great adversity can affect this disease—
for disease it is—and bring baek the
national mind to a sense of right and
justice. It is in this horrible plight
that a great majority of the nations of
the earth now find themselves, and it
is with the desire to throw off this
horrible nightmare that they are soon
to plunge into war. The sacrifices will
be great, but when the crisis is over
the peoples throughout the world will
feel all the better for the removal of
the evils that necessitated the severe
treatment. Hence it is, that the sooner
the struggle commences the Booner will
the people be made sensible of the
blessings of peace with prosperity, and
they will treat with disgust and horror
the men who dare to use religion as a
means of gaining a contemptible livelihood or a cloak to cover avarice.
order to rid lhe world of something
that tempts men to misfortune. It bas
always been a puzzle to ub how the
promotors of the Coal Harbor scheme
ever deceived themselves or anybody
else. The so-called harbor has very
, little aicoiiiinodatinii for shipping, supposing suitable wharves were buiit;
but with the necessary wharves, the
place is wholly unfit for the reception
of valuable steamships, tbe class of
vessels most likely to ply to llurrard
Inlet, in conjunction with the railway.
The incoming tide makes a sweep
round , fouling, tide rips and eddies,
sufficient to cause violent motion lothe
vessels lying at thu wharves, such a
serious objection where perfect quiescence is necessary for the rapid unloading and loading of steamships. An
equally serious objection is the fact that
nothing could prevent the exposure of
ships to the southwesterly, westerly
and northwesterly winds, which would
endanger any vessels, no matter what
the character of wharves to which tliey
were attached. All this is clearly apparent to anyone who knows what a
harbor should be; hence, the extraordi
nary fact that anyone ever bought Coal
Harbor lots under the impression that
at that place would be formed the receptacle for large Pacilic mail steamers.
Knglish Bay iB even worse than Coal
Harbor, and nothing less than a five
million breakwater—if it can be made
for that—would render it safe for ships
except during the culm summer months.
But we will suppose for a moment that
either of these proposed harbors—or
both—was utilized for the reception of
vessels. There is undoubtedly no more
important requisite for a port than a
supply of pure water. Now, there is
nothing of this kind to be found anywhere about Coal Harbor or English
Bay, and consequently they are each
and severally unlit for harbors We
are not now assuming the role of a
rival storekeeper by decrying Coal
Harbor nnd English Bay; to do so
would be the height of cruelty; they
have both been condemned by public
opinion and are, therefore beyond criticism; but we repeut the glaring objec
tions to their adoption as the terminus
of the Canadian Pacific railway, in
order to ask how anyone could be im
posed upou by such a pretext. The
object of the C.P.R.. syndicate must
have been clear from tho beginning:
they desired to exclude every one else
from Burrard Inlet and English Bay,
and for that purpose determined, on
any pretense, to secure all the land -
particularly the fiontages—in the vicinity, aud this they will do at a very
small expense. They have never attempted to conceal their object; indeed,
Mr. Van Home frankly admitted it
when here. All these facts combined
make a very ugly showing for honest
John una tin; Utile syndicate. Then-
ore persons connected with the last
named association who mny not be very
familiar with the requirements of a
great port, but were intelligent enough
to understand the real position ns tn the
intention of the C. P. R. syndicate with
Coal Harbor. That they still continue
to crack it up as the lite of the future
terminus, is strange; but we all know
that a drown ng man will cling even to
a straw and will drown his dearest
friend in tlie hope of saving himself.
Therefore, the vain and hopeless tusk
of rolling the terminus ball up hill,and
the cruel fate that always causes it to
roll baek again when it appears to be
just at the summit. Honest John has
not been in this city lately to make
speeches on the advantage of selling
our squares, or to tickle landho'ders
who have lots about Burnaby Lake,
with the idea that the extension would
be constructed in that direction. He
is even now uncertain as to the payment by the local Government of the
$37,000 promised as the Government
share of our branch, since it is highly
probable that our citizens will object to
any branch which does not connect directly with Port Moody. Honest John
had an object in view wh'ii he obtained
distilling and browing privileges for
Coal Harbor; he knew that they would
require the means of consolation close
at hand in that quarter. He also provided a cemetery, which wo trust will
not be required for suicides; but it
mi(.-Lt be useful as the last resting place
of the Coal Harbor Bcheme, and honest
John might read the funeral services.
We have often raised a warning
voice with the object of saving persons
like thoBe interested in Coal Harbor,
from the malignant influence of honest
John's evil star. We have taken the
trouble to point out the evil fate that
persistently followed, and always overtook, every scheme to which he was a
party. We knew very well that feiv
would avail themselves of our caution
or appreciate our philanthropic intention; but we performed a conscientious
duty, and we feel satisfied in our own
minds for having done so. We would
ask the little syndicate how they feel
with present prospects? Don't they
wish that honest John had been at the
bottom of the Red Sea instead of being
in the way to be used for a scheme
that has never been anything else
but  an abortion,  which  must  die  in

Merited Commendation—Whatever fault
may 1-e found with our mail regulations between here and New Westminster, during
tbe past year, justice and candor requires u
h) ttjy that Mr. S. Connor's promptness and
efficiency in the discharge of his office as
carrier, merits high commendation, and his
obliging deposition haa lead him, even beyond the strict requirements of his contract,
to carry extra mails weekly for tho accom
modation of tho public, free of charge, and
he therefore retires carrying with him the
well-earned respect and gratitude of the
entire community. May his successor, Mr.
Austin, acquit himself of the duties of hia
office with a like degree of credit.
Thk New Cold Mines.—Every day news
of a more and more encouraging character
reaches our town from the Similkameeu
District, and accordingly the excitement is
increasing. Nearly every day chronicles the
departure of some of our citizens. Kvery
man that it footloose is either gone or un the
eve of going, while many others not so situated are shifting the cares of business or
family, as the case may be, on tho shoulders
of their neighbors, and are hieing away to
the new Kldorudo. Many seem confident
tbat the Siinilkamecn mines wilt turn out n
second Cariboo, while as many others, lens
credulous, are sorely oppressed with doobt
and fear. We hope and trust they will
prove all that is predicted—a grand iHOOftt.
On thk Batffl ok Traokdy. — Since
housebreaking and robberies have become so
prevalent her-ahouta tbe least noise after
midnight is apt to bu mistaken for the tread
of tho burglar. Accordingly a few nights
since near the approach of morning the
sound of foot steps awakened one of our
townsmen, who instant y sprang for bit
trusty rifle, and rushing outdoor in the
piticrtioii whenco came the noise, he espied
the form of a human being apparently on
the retreat. The disturbed sleeper was just
iu the act of drawing a bead on thu suip ■> ed
tramp, when   the latter  cried out:    "Don'l
shoot mo   Mr.  , 1 am   just on   my way
home," whereiip'>n tlie foi mer, recognizl- u
his near neighbor, called him int • his hi i
and treated him to a glass of "Scotch," and
hade him depart in peace.

Letters from Watt Africa report the suspicious death of Mr. JJIair, the new British
Consul at Oil Rivers. Mr. Blair started feu
see King Benin with reference to ii protective treaty concluded with Benin's
Viceroy. The natives, who aver that Benin
is immortal and has never been seou by mortal man, eviuced hostility to Mr. Blair
and compelled him to abandon his journey.
Mr. Blair arrived home in good health, but
died on thr following day. It ia supposed
that he was poiaoned.
Paul Angulo and other Spanish refugees
iu London are under surveillance, the Spanish Uovt-rtimcut having received information
that a plot to assassinate King Alfonso has
been arrange.I in England, and that emissaries, have left KnglAud, via Frapce for
the Spanish frontier. The Madrid Government is considering whether or not to de-
maud tho surrender of Angulo on the charge
of the murder of Oen. Prim. All the lead
ing Itcpublicans, including Custelar, Sal-
merou, Zorrilla, and Margall, declare that
they have no sympathy with the Angulo
party. The (ih oo, Castelar'a organ, says
Angulo should be classed among common
criminals, and the Proijresto demand*, that
ho be brought to justice.
The Sultan of Zanzibar was notified by
Admiral Paschen, commanding the German
fleet bere, that unless he complied within
twenty-four houra with Germany's preliminary demands concerning the possessions
claimed in Zanzibar by German subjects,
friendly negotiations will be dropped. The
Sultan making no reply to this notice within
tho time areeified, Admiral Past-hen has
moved his squadron up in front of the Sultan's palace nnd taken a position there. It
is thought tbat this demonstration by Germany will have the effect of inducing the
Sultan to accede to Germany's demands for
an amicable settlement of the dispute.
The newly elected Cardinals were received
by the Pope in the Hall of the Throne for
the ceremony of the imposition of the beretta
aud mozetta. The brother of the Pope,
Cardinal Joseph Pecci, who fills in the Vatican the office of Cardinal nephew, and
therefore does the honors of the house, received the new Cardinals in the rooms which
are especially allotted for such and rimilar
occu f.-nces. After a short atop in th-ase
rooms Cardinal Pecci took the new Cardinals to the Pope's presence. A master of
ceremonies led the new Cardinals, each of
whom performed a genuflection three time-*-
in front of the Pope and kissed the foot of
the Pope. He then put on them the mozetta
and beretta, after which each Cardinal
doffed his beretta and kissed the hand of the
Pope, and finally embraced him and waa
embraced by bim. Cardinal Melkers, as
the dean of the newly-elected Cardinals, de
lirered a thanksgiving speech. The Pope
replied briefly, and closed by imparting the
benediction. After these formalities the
new Cardinals had a familiar conversation
with the Pope and hi* brother.

has long bam. and i*- now, [noon parnbly
wider than it i» in tbp Dnitad States and
Kngland. There is hardly anything which a
French Legislature, either in its lawmaking
capacity or through its executive committee,
the Cabinet, is not in theory compet- nt t'i
ilo, and hardly anything which the French
people is not deposed by custom or by t. m
per to throw upon its shoulders. If a French
artisan is out nf work, he expects tbe Government to find him employment; ifa French
peasant loses hia cattle by splenic fever or
his vines by the phylloxera, be demands that

Just now the rural agriculturist is leas exacting than the urban operative, but this
does not moke tbe path of political candidates much smoother, For while, with a
prospect of improved crops before him, the
peasant imposes fewer pledges of direct assistance to himself, he is strenuously opposed
to any increase of taxation for the benefit of
others. He knows that he would have to
bear in the end the major part of the debt
incurred Cor Government railways and canals
aud other administrative devices for relieving the sufferers from industrial depression
in large towns. Vet without some pledges
of the kind no party programme and no candidate can win the party vote. Moreover,
under the working of the aerutin de Unle the
double dealing hitherto practised is impossible. The name party cannot put forth one
set of principles and one sort of candidate
in a manufacturing centre and .mother in a
rural canton. It must make out a list of
uominces for a whole department, and every
name lnuwt, ba aoeeptiblfl to both classes of
rtfteri, peasants and artis-ins alike.
There uro also grounds suggested by the
general state of Eur< peon which Frenchmen
would be justified in regarding the coming
election as peculiarly momentous. The Deputies chosen iu October will witness in nil
likelihood daring their four years of office
events of far read,ing import that may have
a potent bearing on the d-stinics of trance.
No one imagines, f. r example, tbat a collision in Afghanistan between Rut-sia and Great
Britain can be postponed four years. Such
a war would almost certainly spread from
Asia to Kurope, and in tho consequent din-
tribution of forces France ind Russia would
be powerfully attracted toward each other.
That the French people instiucti.ely expect
co operation of tbe kind has been shown by
many incidents, of which the latest is tbe
entliusi*.4i.: welcome given on Monday at Lo
Manw to I* l.u.Hsian miBtary officer. Bnt the

Bordeaux,—A'.)'. Hon,
The committee nf the Turf Chib bas done
justice in sobunn conclave (Lord Baningtou
in the chair) concerning l'ie matters ut issue
between tho Earl of Lonsdale and Sir George
Chetwind. Gen. Owen Williams at once
offered a humble apology to the club on behalf of the noble peace breakej, and au
equally humble apology to Sir George Chet*
wynd uas al-o read. '
In consideration of these humble apologies
Btr George Chet Wynd bae been requested to
withdraw his reMguatinn nf membership,
aud I.ord Lonsdale bat* been allowed to do
the same. Gen. Williame has, I am credibly informed, written a letter to Lord Lonsdale, in which be expresses a hopo that, in
consideration of tho clemency extended to
him, he will carefully abstain from any "reflections" un Sir George Chctwynd, and
frankly confesses that be shall feci himself
pereonaHjr reeponelUe if any further provocation is offered.
A promt ivrbul Iihs been duly pasted in the
club, and nobody seems inc'ined to quarrel
with the very gem-ruI opinion tbatSfrUeorge
Chetwynd bas come well out of a very toying ordeal. It is tn be hoped that Lord
I-oncdale is sufficiently grateful to Lord de
Rothschild, Mr. Henry Chaplin, and Gen.
Owen Williams.
The following notice is posted up at tbe
Turf Club:
"Lord Lonsdale having apologised to Sir
George Chctwynd, and Sir George Chetwynd
having accepteil the apology, Lord Lonsdale
will be permitted to withdraw his resignation of membership of the Turf Club, and
Sir Ge-irge Chetwynd is requested to withdraw hia resignation ot membership.
It is said that the Prince of Wales interfered directly to bring this about; but many
persons consider that it is not a question of
whetbei Sir George Chetwind is satisfied
with an apology, but whether Lord Lonsdale,
having committed an outrage on public
manners by striking Sir George Chetwynd in
a public park, ought to be allowed to remain a member of a club. Some twenty-
five years ago Major Gordon and Capt. Kane
had a similar game of fisticuffs in the park,
they were both turned out of their club for it.

should run from the Speaker's chair tothe
bar, and that waa your line of railway, when
you got to the bar you could have no cluim
to anything beyond it, So here you bail a
claim tu a grant of laud all along the railway
until you got to Port Moody; there the rail-
wuy stopped, and the grant of land stopped,
aud the miggcation which the hon. gentleman
makes thut there was a provision for the
granting of contiguous lands, or lands to
meet the shortage, as be phrases it, applies
to what WO WOT* entitled to, down to the
terminus hut uot below the terminus. On
what basis or pretence could we ask for land
beyond the terminus? Why should tliey do
anything more than cruut uh 20 miles on
each side of the road for ita entire length?
On w bat basis could we ask them to do anything more?
Hon. Mr. Mclunia—Why use that word
Hon. Sir Alex. Campbell—That is contiguous lands. We could not have tbe whole
breadth of the land in British Columbia, and
it turned out there was ;* deficit because
lands hud been granted, or otherwise parted
with to tbe extent of 500,000 acres. We
were to get in lieu of that oOO.OOO acres of
land as near us possible to that locality.
Hun. Mr. Macdonald—Thut is a mutter of
Hen. Sir Alex. Campbell—A matter of
agreement, but there is no provision that w
shuuld have land below tbe terminus. It
would be just us absurd as that we should
ask for land in some other part of the country altogether. Then the hon. gentleman
says that they propone to construct the line
further on uud go down to Coal Hurler, and
ihat they are getting money from the country
to do that. Now they are nut getting money
from the country to do tliat.
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—My amendment docs
not stite anything about going beyond Port
Moody, but my motion is thut the Govern
ment curry out their contract to build the
terminal buildings at Port Moody, and then
they can extend it if they please, but with
their own money.
Hon, Sir Alex. Campbell—The hon. gentleman suid this: the country i* going to
lend them money to construct a line from
Port Moody westwards.
Hon. Mr. Mclunis—So they aro.
Hun. Sir Alex. Campbell—Thu hon. gentleman repents it. The coiiutry i*. not doing
anything of the kind. The country will
have completed their bargain when they get
the Toad finished to Port Moody, and tbey
are not lending this company any money to
v;o beyond Port Moody. In tbe statement
be bus read, it is true the company show
what they are going to do with the money,
but hu cannot say because thoy put that
item in that it shows any mure ounolaaively
that thia railway is going to be built by m.
or at onr expense than by putting an item in
for railway cars be could say that tin*
country is going to pay for the rolling stock.
They ure going to spend 81,000,000 In new-
railway cars, for instance. Those cais are
not to belong to the Government. The
Government will .not have anything to say
about them; neither will tbe Government
have anything to do with the building of the
ruud between Port Moody and Coal Harbor,
nor Will they have anything to say about it,
nor will they own it. Thu company, in their
statement, show, in u general way, why they
are in want of money, how much tbey want
und what they are going to do with it when
they get it. Now, to say that they are going
to build this extension from Port Moody to
Coal Harbor Ont of this $5,000,000, is incorrect. In the next place, thu money will
be theirs when wo lend it to them, and
they will be obliged tn repay it, and
they will repay it next duly; but to say, iu
the first place, that it in their money, and
then to suy thut tbey must uot lay it out as
they please, is exceedingly contradictory.
When it is loaned, it is not the money of
the Government at all. Cur whole duty
will have been discharged when the road is
completed tu Port Moody. We du not pro-
pose to give this company any money what*
ever, and there is not a syllable in this Hill
about expending the money wt- are loaning
them west of the terminus, and that ii the
suggestion which the bon. gentleman makea
—that this money is going to ho expended
west of the terminus; tliat it is public money,
aud that it is iu tbe statemeut, which is a
statement of tbe company showing what
they propose to do, but it is nnt with our
money, but with their own money, after
they raise it. They show the way that they
are going to spend the $15,000,000, when
they get it, but it is m.i bbe Govern men t*a
$15,000,000, it i.i the company's $16,000,000,
and if they make a mistake iu apendlng it,
it it* their, and not our, mistake, and we
have ample security for it. He says that tn
this agreement we ought, perhaps, to prevent the company from building any water
tank, or anything of that kind, on tbe west
side of Port Moody, It is very difficult to
undeiBtand the amendment, but with such
understandings as 1 have, the Government
do not propose tu do thai; the Government
have nn power, as far as I can see, to erect
buildings or to extend the road beyond Port
Moody or except upon the Pacific Railway
proper, and that extension will i.*&t be part
of it. There is no difficulty about, that, nnd
if this Bill proposed anything of the kind I
would say that the hon. gentleman is right
and let it lie amended; but it does not propose anything of the kind. Supposing one
terminus of this ro&d is at Montreal, as it
is at this moment, is there any power in the
Bill to go beyond Montreal? None whatever and we could not build a mile of railway Without additional legislative power,
on the other side of Montreal, Tbe power
must be given by Parliament, and no power
has l)eeu given to extend thia Hue of railway
beyond Port Moody, and we have no
land and no money to extend it be
yund Port Moody. The hon. gentleman
is led astray by the position he is placed in,
and I regret it. He is led astray by the belief that there are powers iu tbe Bill which
are not in the Bill, and by the belief that
the Government are doing what they cannot
do without legislative authority, and that
the money to be raised by the Company is
the money of the Government, and has to be
expended as Government money. These are
great mistakes. The Bill is simply for the
purpose of raising the money, and changing
the relative positions of the C mpany and
Ibe (icvernment in regard to mon.-y transactions; and i&at we should incorp'irate into
it an unnecessary provision bearing upon u
dSSFei'set rfiibjset, bearing upon the tcrmiuus
at Port Moody and theexp-ni':tnr.* of money
at that terminus, i» to me > B> -'- unreasonable thin.'. and [ emnot hut think tliat the

Hon. Mr. Dickey- Th re was a qneotlOa
the other day that there was to tie a round
house built beyond i'ort Moody, aud I con
fessthat I was anxious to get some Information and Home aieiurance on that puint,
because 1 could not bee how the Government
could undertake to expend money 12 miles
beyond the terminus of tbe Pacific Railway
for such a purpose us thut; but 1 bave got
thu assurance now that uo money la tu be
expended for thut purpose by tbe Govern*
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes-The Government
called   for tenders time  and  again   for the
erection of this round bouse at Purt M ly;
if tbey carry uut that work I am satiaficd,
but they have abandoned it.
Hon. Mr. Dickey-The fuct thut they
called fur tenders supports the view which
the Minister ha-* laid before the House, that
the Government claim no right whatever to
build that round-house or any other buildings beyond Port Moody. Another matter
that I wish to have some information about
Ii why did the Government give np thii land?
Wu bave got au answer upou that puint also.
It occurred to ine thut there could only be
one una wer, and that in that the line, so far
as tbe Government is concerned, proceeded
no farther thui Port Moody, otherwise there
would be m> justification fur their giving up
the laud between Eoglioh Bay and Port
Moody. They took power, not knowing
where the terminus wes to be originally , to
have the reservation extend further than wa-
absolutely necessary, because by the'r own
o'der-incouncil and by the act which baa
been read to us, the termiuiH WM ultimately
lixed, not at Enyli-.li Bay but ut Port Moody;
aud therefore the land between those two
points tbey claim to have nothing tu do with
whatever, and they tell us now that tbey
have nothing to do with thut land, und how
it has got into the hands of the company, or
of what sort nf process i-j a matter, though
it may require some explanation if it were
necessary for us to inquire into it, we need
not trouble our head.- about, because aftoi
all it has really very little tu do with thia
question. There is another mutter that I
would like to havo some information about;
that is, it has been stated to us that it is the
intention nf the cutnpany tu extend this line
to English Bay. I should like to know by
what authority they do thut—what authority there is for it iu the Act, or m the contract, or what other authority there [if Be
cause there muy be some local law or authority for that purpose. That is a point upou
h hich we huve as yet no Information) bnt it
is quite dear, as fur as the Government is
concerned, tbey have given us a distinct as
SUranoe that no terminal building! are to be
built by them beyond the limits of the nun
tract, which stopped at Port Moody, With
regard to the other point, as to giving money
(or this pnrpoee, I think We must be satisfied
that this is a loan which will be collected.
Whether it will ever he paid or not id perhaps a matter nf bune considerable uno r
tainty. At all events it is not ft grant; it i.-
ccrtuinly a l-'an; at the same time 1 quite
agree witb my hon. friend, thut tins large
amount mav or may not be | part of that
10,000.000, but I do not.think it ought to
enter into the question, because the great
point, to which wc sliould deeire, as a Legli
Live body, to direct our attention, It, do the
the Government propose to go beyond the
ltmit.; of the powers which have been given
to them by Parliament:' and J do not fee ut
present, as fur as the mutter has been pre-
lented to iny mind, that they have; and
therefore the amendment of thi bou, iimm
her from New Westminster is Unneoeaeary,
after the assurance that bus been given that
the Government do not prODOM to take anv
powers greater than those given to litem by
tbe Act of 1881 ami the contract that was
made in coiisequem e of that Act.
Hon. Sir Alex. Campbell—The power
which the bon. gentleman refen te is given
iu the Act itself, which enablea them to i K*
tend the main linn if they see Iii. It is el
the end of clause In. I think it [| on.hi
that they are constructing this ezteneion.
I do not know that tbey have got any power
from the local Legislature.
Hon. Mr. McDonnid (B. C.)-They have
au agreement Poly, so far
Hon. Mr. Dickey--Then, if that la dene,
will nnt this lieu w hich the Government ba.e
by those preferential b.-nds extend over the
whole of that line?
Sir Alex. Campbell—Yea, it will
because the lien is over tin* w hole of tin- 1
citic Railway, and this clause says it fthe'J
only construct such a portion of the Pacific
Hon. Mr. Nelson—I think, Port Moody
having been declared thu terminus of the
Pacific Railway, and it having been stated
publicly by the Minister of Railways that it
wns to be th'* terminus, that not only should
we look to the leader of the House for an
awuiranco that no buildings would bo constructed by the Government beyond the
terminnl of tho Pacific Railway; but we
should also look to the leader of the Government for the assurance that the tormiual
buililiu a to be constructed at the terminus
will be constructed. It has beeu publicly
stated, first 1 believe, in Biitish Columbia
and ttfeu rumored here, that the Government
bad ceased the construction of the t rminal
buildings ut Port Moody. It has also been
stated that negotiations have been proceed
ing hetweeu tho C. P. R. Company and thu
Government for the purpose of stopping the
construction of those building-?. If such is
the case, and it is the intention of the Government ihat those buildings shall not lw
constructed ut Port Moody, 1 think we can
only look upon as a breach of faith on the
part of the Government with the people, and
more particularly with those who invested
their money at Port Moody. I thiuk, therefore, it would be very satisfactory to have
the assurance of the Government in this
House that no buildings will be constructed
beyond the terminus and tbat the buildings
promised to be constructed at Port Moody
as a terminus will be constructed.
Hon. Sir Alex. Campbell—I con give no
promise that would he more obligatory than

Hon. Mr. Power—I do not think there it
any rule of Parliament which prevents a

the general rule is thut where a metnjner ie
personally interested he makes his statement

rule which is not observed quite u. carefully
us it should he either iu thia House or in the

whether we are giving them the money or
lending it to them; thev come to us and ask
us to lend them $0,000,000 in cash, and alter
tin- existing arrangement about some other,
millions. Then I think when the company.
come to tho Government, and ask them to,
grant them favors, Parliament has a right ta
suy "we shall do what you wish, but we
ibftU do it on Certain conditions," and now.
the question is whether the Condition pro-
posed In the amendment of the hon. gentle-
nan from New Westminster, is a reasonable,
one or not. Looking at all that bas taken
plaoe, I think it is a perfectly reasonable
'oud.tion. I quite c incur iu what the
Miuist- r of Jutioe s.iid as tu the propriety of
giving up thp'Jand grunt west of Purt Moody
onoe thu Government bad decided thnt the
western terminus should be nt Port Moody.
But if the western terminus of the roud ia at
Port Moody fur tlie purpose of the laud grant,,
then it should be at Port Moody for the pur-
poee ol tbe terminal building! eleo, [ cannot sec bow the Minister oan very -v.ll get
out oi that dilemma. If P,,rt Mo.,dy it, as
far as the Government ar*: concerned, the
western terminus uf th'- road, then those terminal building! which tha Government ware
bonnd by the statute of 18.SI and the agreement embodied In tlie statute to erect at the,
w istern terminal should be erected at Port
Moody and no other place.

Dr Delauny, an eminent. French

Dreams which come to a sleeper in

sleeper who lies upon his left side, iu

ru-eapi to be concerned with recent actual

The system carried out in Vienna for
educating girls is certainly worthy of
notice. They are kept at their studies
until thoy aro fifteen yours of age.
They then go through a course of
teaching in the pantry and the kilchcn

sometimes under trained cooks for a
year or two. Thus they learn to do
everything themselves, and to know the
value of tliinus long before they commence housekeeping on their own
account; and though thoy may never
be required to cook a dinner, tbey become independent of conks and servants.

A simple cure of sleeplessness has
been advised by a Parisian physician
for an American travelling through
Europe who suffered from wakeful
nights. The remedy was complete cessation of mental exertion in the evening,
and the formation ofa habit of retiring
at the same time each evening. No letter wiiting, no reading of excitable
hooks was allowed, and the mind was
placed in as passive a state as possible.
The American, who had been a victim
of sleeplessness for years, returned home

At the last meetinr: of the French

child hBd her arms upon the sill. Suddenly the support on which the sash
rested gave wny and the sash fell with
considerable force on the little girl's
arms, inflicting a severe bruise. Her
mother, who was in the room at the
time, happened to look toward the window at the moment of the accident and
witnessed it. She fainted with fright
and remained insensible for a minute
or two. When she recovered she was
