ordered her a gontle composing draught
and left her in care of the nurse,
promising to return by and by, to see
how my Bweet patient went on. I found
that the dean had left. After swallowing a little wine and water, he recovered sufficiently from the shock he
had   receivi-d, to   be able,   with   Dr.
D 's  assistance, to   step   inlo  his
carriage,   leaving his   benediction   for
Mist P .
As it was growing late,"I" sent my
wife to bed, and ordered coffee in my
study, whither I retirod, and xat lost in
conjecture and reverie till nearly one
o'clock. I then repiired lo my patient's
room; but my entrance, startled her
from a sleep thit bad lasted almost
since I hid left. As soon as I sal
down by her, she opened her eyes—anil
my heart leaped with joy to sue their
increasing calmness—their expression
resembling what ha I oft delighted ine
while she was in health. After e-eing
me steadily for a few m 'mente, sbe
seemed   suddenly   lo    reengnixe    me.
Dr.    -I"   sho   whispeie-l,   in    the
faintest possible whisper, while a smile
stole over her languid features. I gently
grasped her hand; and in doing no my
tears fell upon her cheek.
"How strange!" she whispered again
in a lone as feeble as before. She
gently moved her hand into mine, and
I clasped the trembling lilied fingers,
with an emotion I cannot express. She
noticed my agitalion; and the tears crime
inlo her eyes, while her lip quivered, as
though she were going to apeak. I
implored her, however, not to utter a
woid, till she was belter able to do it
without exhaustion; and, lest my presence should lempt her beyond her
strength, I bade her gooil-,)i«lil -her
poor slender finger once more compressed mine—and I left her to th" care
of (be nurse, with a whispered injunction

I felt a prodi_*ioiiH burden removed frnm
my mind, and woke my wile that she
might share in my jny.
I received no summons duiing lhe
night; and on entering her room about
nine o'clock in (be morning, I found
that Miss P—— had taken a little
arrow-rool in the course of lhe night,
and slept calmly, with bul few intervals. She had sighed frequently; and
once or twice conversed for a short lime
wiih the Ourse about heaven—as I understood. She was much strnnr-er than
I had expected to find her. I welcomed her affectionately, and she asked
me how I »as—in a tone that surprised
me by its strength and firmness.
"Is the s.orm overt" she inquired,
looking towards lhe window.
"Oh, yes—long, long ago I" I replied
seeing at once that she seemed lo have
no consciousness ofthe interval ihat had
elaps- d.
"And are you all   well*—Mrs. "
(my wife), "bow is shel"
"You shall see her shortly."
"Then no one was hurt?"
"Not a hair of our headl"
"How fiightened I must have been I"
"Poh, Poh, Agnes I Nonsense I Forget iti"
"Then—the world is not—there has
been no—ia all the same as it wasl"
she murmuted, eyeing me apprehensively.
"The world come to an end—do you

air—"Oh, no, no! It was merely n
thunder storm."
"And it is quite over, and gone!"
"Long agol   Do yon   feel hungry!"

"Yes, it was! Do you know, doctor,"

My   first   visit  was  to Mr. N ,
whom 1 found in a very weak elate,
but to much recovereJ from his illness
as to be sitting up and pariially dressed.
He was perfectly calm andcollectel; and,
in answer to his earnest inquiries, I
gave linn a full accounl ofthe nature of
Miss P 's illness.    He received the
Bad occurred with evident thougl
silent ecstasy. After much inward
doubt and hesitation, I thought I might
venture to tell him of the parting, the
twice-repeated, request sbe had made.
Tbe intelligence blanched hia already
pallid cheeks io a whiter hue, and he
trembled violently.
"Did you tell her I was in town!
Did she recollect me!"
"No one hra breathed your name to
her!" I replied.
"Well doctor, if, on the whole, you
think so—lhat  it wouhl be  safe," said
N , after   we had talked   much on
the matter—"I will step over and see
her; but—it   looks very, very strange!"
"Whatever whim may aciuateher, I
think It belter, on the whole to g arifv
her. Your refusal may be attended
with infinitely worse effects than an
interview. However, you shall heir
from me ugain. I will see if she continues in the same mind; and if so, I
will step over aud tell you." I took
my leave.
A few moments before stepping
down   to   dinner,   [ sat   beside    Miss
P , making my usual inquiries; and
was gratified.to find that her progress,
rhough slow, seemed sure. I was lr-av

that she had previously displayed, sbe

It was evening — a mild, though
lustrous July evening. The skies were
all blue and white, save where tbe re-
siiring unlight produced a mellow mixture of colors towards the west. Not a
breath of air disturbed tho soiene complacency. My wife and I s.t on each
side of lhe Ltd where lay our lovelv
invalid, looking) despite her illness,
beautiful and in comparative health.
Her hair was paited with negligent
simplicity over her pale forehead, lier
eyes were brilliant, ami her cheeks oc-
crsionnllv flushed, She spoke scarce a
word to u, as we sat beside her. I
gazed at her with doubt and, apprehension. I was aware that health could
not possibly produce the color and
vivacity of her complexion snd eyes;
and felt at a loss to whal 1 should refer
'Agnes, love!—How beautiful is the
setting sun!" exclaimed my wife,
drawing aside the  curtains.
Raise me! Let me lo k at it!" replied Miss P ,  faintly.    She   prized
earnestly at the   magnificent  object for
some minutes;   aud theii abruptly sai.l
"He will be here soon!"

Sli«ki(|hed, and shook her head.
It bail been arranged that Dr. D	
should   accompany Mr.   N to my
bouse, and conduct him upstairs,
afler strongly enjoining on him - the
necessity there a-ai for controlling his
feelings, and displaying an Mule emotion
as possible. My heart leapt into ray
mouth —as the saying is—when I heard
the expected knock at the  door.
"N  is corneal last 1"   said I in a
gentle tone, looking earnestly at her, to
see if aha »as agitated. It waa not the
case, She sighed, but evinced no trepidation.
"Shall he be shown in at once!" I
"No—wait B few moments," replied
the extraoidinary girl, and seemed lost
in thought for about a minute. "Now!"
she exclaimed; and I sent down the
nurse, herself pale and trembling with
apprehension, lo request the-attendance
of Dr. D and Mr. N: .
As they were heard slowly approaching the room, I looked anxiously at my
patient, anrl kept my fingers at her pulse.
Thero was not a symptom of flutter or
sgitatfoh. At length the door was
opened, and Dr. D  suddenly entered, with N    upon his arm.    As
noon as his pale, trembling figure was
visible, a calm and heavenly smile
beamed upon the countenance of Miss
P . Itwasfullof ineffable loveliness. She stretched out ber right arm;
he pressed it to his lips, without tittering a word.
My eyes wore riveted on the features
of Miss P .    Either   ihey deceived
me, or I saw-a strange alteration, as if
a cioud were stealing over her face,. I
wu right! We all observed hei- color
fading rapidly. I rose from my chair;
Dr. D also came nearer, thinking
she was on the verge of fainting. Her
eyes was fixed upon the flushed features
of her lover, and gleamed with ridisnce.

acquaintance called him, "long Dumps'
wu a baobelor, six feet high, and fifty
years old; cross, cadaverous, odd, and
ill-natured. He was never happy but
when he was miserable; and always
miserable when ho bud tin- best reason
to ba lrnppy. The only real comfort
of his existence was to make everybody
about him wretched—then lie might be
truly said to enjoy life. He was afflicted with a situation iu the Bank
worth five hundred a year, and he
rented a "Tir.it Hour furnished," at Pen
tonvilli, which he. originally took because it. commanded a dismal prospect
of an adjacent churchyard, lie wns
familiar with the face of every tomb
stone, anrl the burial service seemed to
excite his strongest sympathy. His
friends sairl he was surly—ho insisted
he was nervous; they thought him a
lucky dog, but he protested that he
was "the most unfortunate man in the
world." Cold as he was, ami wretched
as he declared himself to be, he was not
wholly unsuBceptiblo of attachments.
He revered the memory of Hoyle, as
he wa, himself an admirable and imperturbable whist-player, and be
chuckled with the delight nt a fretful
anrl impatient adversary, He nrlnred
King Herod for his massacres of the
innocents; and if he hated one thing
more than another, it was a child.
However, be could hardly be said to
hate anything in particular, because he
disliked everything in general; but perhaps his greatest antipathies were cabs.
Ho subscribed to the "Society for the
Suppression of Vice," for the pleasure
of putting a stop to any harmless
amusement*; and he 'contributed largely towards the support of two
Itinerant Methodist parsons, in the
aniirililir hope that if circumstances
rendered any people happy in this
world, they might perchauroe be ren
dered miserable by fears for the next.
Mr. Dumps bad a nephew who had
been married about a year; nnd who
was somewhat of a favorite with his
uncle, because bn was an admirable subject in exercise his miscryrcreating
powers upon. Mr. Charles Kitterbell
rs-ns a Bm6.ll, sharp, spare man, with a
very large head, and a broad, good-
humored I'liniiti'iiancir. He looked like
n faded giant, with the bead and face
partially restored; anil lur had a cast iu
his eye which rendered it quite impossible for any one with whom he conversed to know where he was looking.
His eyes appeared fixed nil the wall,
aqd he was staring you out of iroun-
ennnce: in short, there was no catch-
inghis eye, and perhaps it is a merciful
dispensation of Providence thai such
eyes are not catching. In addition lo
these characteristics, it muy be added
that Mr, Charles Kitterbell was
one of the most credulous and matter
of fact little personage*, that ever took
fo himself a wife, and for himself n
house iu Qrcat Rowel street, Bedford
Square. (Uncle Dumps always
hopped the "Bedford Square," and inserted In lieu thereof tlie dreadful
words "TottPiilmm-ririirt Road."
"No, but Uncle, 'pon my life you
must—you must promise to be godfather," said Mr. Kitterbell, as he sat
in conversation with his respected relative one morning.
"I cannot, indeed 1 cannot," returned
"Well, but why not! Jemima will
think it very unkind. It's very little
"As to the trouble," rejoined the
most unhappy man iii existence, "I
don t mind that; but my nerves are in
that state—I cannot go through the
ceremouj. You know I don't like
going out.—For God's sake Charles,
don't fidget with that stool so; you'll
drive m- mad." Mr. Kitterbell, quite
regardless of his uncles nerves, had
occupied himself for some ton minutes
in describing a circle on the floor with
one leg of the office-stool ou which he
was seated, keeping the other three up
in the air, and holding fast on by the
"1 beg your pardon, uncle," said
Kit'ei-lrell, quite abashed, suddenly re-
leasing his hold of the desk, and bringing three wandering legs back to the
floor, with a force sufficient to drive
them through it, "But como, don t re
fuse. If it's a boy, you know, we'
must have two godfathers."
"If it's a boy!" said Dumps; "why
dan't you say at once whether it is a
boy oi. noif
"I should be very happy to tell you,
but it's impossible I can undertake to
to sny whether it's a girl or a lioy, if
the child isn't born yet."
"Not born yet'"echoodDumps, with
a gleam, of hope lightning up his
lugubrious visage. "Oh, well, it may
be a ttirlj and then you won't want the;
or if it is a boy, it may die before  it is

"I hope not, ' acquiesced Dumps,

lie was beginning to Mt happy. "I
hope not, but distressing ca». s fre-
quently occur during the first two or
tluei days of a child s life; fits, I am
told, are exceedingly common, and
alarming convulsions are almost matters of course..''
"Lord, uncle," ejaculated little
Kitterbell, gasping for breath.
"Ves, my landlady was confined -
let me see—last Tuesday; an uncommonly fine boy. On the Thursday
night tbe nurse was sitting with him
JjefaWsthe   fire, and h«
as as well as possible. Suddenly he
became black in the face, and alar
miiigly spasmodic. The medical man
was instantly sent for, and every
remedy was tried, but "
"How frightful!" interrupted the
horror-stricken Kitterbell.
"The child .died, of course. However! your child may not die; and if it
should be a boy, and should live to be
christened, why 1 suppose I must be
one of thr- spoiv-ors." Dumps was evidently goorl natured on the faith of
his anticipations.
"Thank you, uncle," said the agitated
nephew, grasping his band as warmly
as if he had done him some essential
service. "Perhaps I had better not tell
Airs  K. what you have mentioned."
"Why, if she's low spirited, perhaps
you had better not mention the melancholy case to her," returned Dumps,
who of course had invented the whole
story; "though perhaps it would be but
doing your duty as a husband to pro-
pare her for the worst.''
A day or two afterwards, as Dumps
was perusing a morning paper at the
chop-house which he regularly fre
quanted, the following paragraph met
his eye:
"Births.-On Saturday, the 18th
inst. in Great Russel street, the lady
of Charles Kitterbell, Esq., of ason."
"It is a boy!" be excluimed, dashing
down the paper, to the astonishment of
the waiters, "it is a boy!" But he
speedily regained his composure as
his eye rested on a paragraph quoting
the number of infant deaths from the
bills of mortality.
Six weeks passed away, and as no
communication has been received from
the I.itterbr-lls, Dumps was beginning
to flatter himself that ihe child was
dead, when the following note painfully
solved his doubts;
"JJreal Russel Street,
".Monday morning.
"DEAR UN(.'i.B —You will be delighted to hear that my dear Jemima
has left her room, anil that your future
godson is [jetting on capitally. He
was very thin at first, but he is getting
much larger, and nurse says he is
lillin-.; out every day, He cries a good
ileal, ami is a very singular color, which
made Jemima and me rather uncom
fortable; but as nurse siys it's natural
anil as of course we know- nothing
aliout these tilings yet, we are. quite
satisfied with what nurse says. We
think he will be s sharp child; and
nurse sins she's sure he will, because
In- never goes to sleep.  You can readily
believe that  we are   nil  very   happy,
only we're a little worn out for want of
rest, as he keeps us awake all night:
but this we must expect, nurse says,
for thr'lirst six or eight monlns. He
has been vaccinated, but ill consequence
of the operation being rather awkwardly performed, some small particles
of glass were introduced into the arm
with the matter. Perhaps this may in
some degree account for his being
rather fractious; at least, so nurse says.
We propose tO have him christened at
twelve o'clock on Friday, at Saint
George's church, in Hart street, by the
name of Frederick Charles William
Pray don't be later than a quarter be
four twelve. Wo shall have a very
few friends in the evening, when of
course we shall seo you. I am sorry
to say that the dear boy appears ratbei
restless and uneasy today; tbo cause, I
fear, is fever.
"Believe me, dear Uncle,
"Yours affectionately,
"P. S.—I open this note to say that
we have just discovered the cause of
little Frederick's resllessness. It is
not fever as I apprehended, but a small
pin, which nurse accidentally stock in
his leg yesterday evening, , We have
taken it out, and he appears more composed, though be still sots a good
It is almost unnecessary to say that
the perusal of the above interesting
statement was no great relief to the
mind of the hypochondriacal Dumps.
It was impossible to recede, however,
and so lie put the best face—tliat is to
say an uncommonly miserable one—
upon the matter; and purchased a
handsome silver mug for the infant
Kitterbell, upon which lie ordered the
initials "F. Q. W. K." with the cus
tornniy untrained grapevine-looking
flourishes, aud a large full stop, to be
engraved forthwith.
Mo-iday was a fine day, Tuesday was
delightful, Wednesday was equal lo
either, and Thursday was finer than
everj-four.succe-sive (iue days in London! Hackney-coachmen became re
vclutionary, and the crossing-sweepers
began to doubt the existence of a

The Mainland Guardian deserves
praise for tin- efforts it has made to

been exposed in the pages of that
veteran defender of justice and truth.
It appears that Mr. Cunningham employed the chain-gang to make drains
and lay pipes for the improvement of
his property. The labor of the convicts belongs to theciiiiens, and taking
it to improve private property is a
crime. Kuinor Bays "a public mooting
will be called t-i denounce the Provincial Secretary as the accomplice of
Cunningham," and it is a serious accusation. The vigilance of the Guardian secures evidence sufficient to con
vict the two honorable members of a
conspiracy to defraud.
Miss Armstrong of New Westminster proved herself entitled to the first
- prize at the examinations. No one
■ ventures to say—"the proof is not
sufficient," but all the scribblers on the
Island are up in arms -gabbling, "Ob!
she's a slranger," "She comes from the
Mainland," "It is not fair play." What
do theso growlers want? Is merit to
lie kept always in the background by
local insignificance t Is the genius of
the Mainland to sleep and let the Isl
andcrs walk off with all the honors?
Oh, no! merit must have fair play.
An inquiry into the causes of the
collision tliat occurred at noonday between the steamers near Victoria is
not completed; but there is evidence
enough to show that military discipline

on either boat, before or after the accident."

Louis Riel refused to take the advice

On Saturday last the remains of
lieneral Grant were buried in central
park New York. An immense quantity
of black crape was used, and it gave the
s reels a solemn air suitab'e for the occasion. Six thousand square yards of
black cloth curtained the Mills building and the penny-a liner says: "The
coffin is known io the trade as style F.

Vanity of vanities 1 All is vanityl The
procession was immense and the

In Westminster Abbey the services
wer-solemn. Canon Fanar delivered
a most impressive address and concluded
with these words. "What verdict history will, pronounce I know not, but
now the voice of censure is silent. We

On Monday last in the House of
Lords the First Lord of the Treasury
moved that "the appointment of a
committee to enquire into the causes of
the present depression of trade was
necessary." Earl Granville opposed
the motion —"it would encourage the
public in the false belief that Parliament could, by legislation, remedy the
evil."    The motion was withdrawn.
It appears from a statement made in
the "Mark Lane Express" last week,
that in future the flour required in the
United Kingdom will be imported from
India, where labor is cheap. It is certain that Oregon and California must

and it is quite possible that the supplies
from India will interfere seriously with

The Land Purchase Bill for Ireland
was read on Monday a second time in
the House of Lords. The lords and
landlords are all wiling to lot the ton
ants become lords on certain conditions.
Indeed steam has destroyed Irish landlordism, and is the great modern leveller. It will elevate 'self made men''
to the position lately occupied by landowners in Europe. The Bill will pass
the Lords, but how will it be received
in the Commons? Parnell talks of "the
folly of buying in a falling market"
and says that steam will equalize tho
value of land all over the world. We
hope to see this land question settled
in Ireland, because it would put an end
to all the discontent that exists in the
Green Isle.
The defence of the coasts of the
United Kingdom is now attracting a
good deal of attention. Our best military engineers say "it is not necessary
that every town on the coast should
bristle with heavy guns; but it is absolutely necessary that all the great seaport cities should be ready at a mo
nient's notice to resist the attack of au
invader. Lord George Hamilton, in
the House of Lords, said:—"England
is the home of scientific research and
mechanical invention; but that knowl
edge will not help us in the hour of
danger, unless we have the finished results of science in sufficient number and
in perfect efficiency." The debate in
the House of Lords, the deputation to
Lord George, and a published report of
proceedings in the rooms of the Empire
Defence League prove very clearly that
the great cities will be fortified and the
fleet increased by heavy armoreiTships.

Sir Charles Gavan Duffy has ad
dressed a long letter to Lord Camar
von, and urges the Conservatives to
setrle the Home Rule question. He
says such laws as made Irishmen loyal
on the banks of the Parramatla and
the Yarra would make them contented
and loyal on the banks of the Shannon
and the Black water. His Lordship, in
reply, said:—"I know tho conservatives

We need hardly remind our readers
that (lie present Government, which is
so by trickery and misrepresentation,
will exercise, nil the devices that cui •
■ling can produce for the occasion, iu
replacing such members as they deem
useful amongst those in the House,
uud uddiiig such others as tbey arc
sure will be simple tools in their
Lands to perpetuate the corruption and
luisgoveriiment which has existed since
they tn6k office. The qualifications
for such new members will be simply
a blind fidelity to the instructions of
the leaders of the Government and the
absence of all desire to know anything
about the measures they vote for. The
danger to the liberties and welfare of
the people of this province must be
self-evident. The whole system of Gov
eminent will resolve itself into a means
of making the fortunes of_the four men
who pretend to be the Government of
the country, at the expense of the entire community. Surely the experience we have had of the last three
sessions should be sufficient fnr the
people; self preservation is the first law
of nature, and it only requires a knowledge of that fact to unite the people
in opposing any possible return to
power of the men now forming the
Government, or any of their nominees.
To achieve that, the vurious constituencies sliould tixupon the men 1 hey are convinced will be true to the sacred trust
confided to them and resolved at any
hazard to support only Buch measures
as will be really to the general advantage. There are very good men who
act from what they conceive to be expediency, and vote for measures which
they know must be hurtful to the general public, because they secure some
local advantage or grant. Now this
must be strenuously opposed; the representative must vote against a bad
measure if he votes alone; his constituents will always support him in such
a case, and his independence of action
will command the respnet of all parties,
and secure his return at a subsequent
election. But if fidelity and consisr-
ency is requisite on the part of any
ropresetitaiives in the new House, it
must be insisted on by mainland constituencies, and they must bind their
representatives to oppose anything not
in the interests of the mainland, and
also, to vote together as one man when
any measure is brought up to secure
mainland rights. There must be no
hesitation or trimming. Tho islanders
havi- consistemly and persistently neutralised the influence of mainland re
presentation; first, by securing the
election of Victorians to represent
mainland constituencies, and next, by
bribing or bamboozling mainland mem-
pen into voting for making the mainland a mere appendage to the island.
That they are quite right, so far as
their interests aro concerned, in this
coifise of procedure, we readily admit,
but they are simply defrauding the
mainland, tho interests of which are
entirely ignored. It will then Vie for
the people of the mainland to refuse to
elect any candidate who is a resident
of the island, or who has any leanings
to island influence. There ore numberless reasons for this, too many in fact,
to enumerate at this time, but. we may
mention a few of them as examples.
The retention of the Capital on the
island is a farce, not merely that to
pay toll to Victoria, we are constantly
placed at great disadvantage and subjected to great loss of time and money,
but the existence of the seat of Government on an outlying island is very
ridiculous and a great injustice to the
majority of the inhabitants of the provinoe. As to what part of the main
land may be selected as the future seat
of Government, that will depend upon
a decision to be arrived at by a conven-
vention on the mainland, when the
various points as to locality, conveni
ence and future advantage, can be fully
weighed and fixed upon. But on the
mainland the Capital must be, and that
point must be a sine qua non to the
election of a candidate; there must be
no hesitation or equivocation. The
construction of a short line of railway
to connect the Fraser with the Ameri
can system of railways is absolutely
necessary for our welfare. We should
have unerring regularity with our
mails; we should have cheap carriage
for freight and travel; the advantages
from the peculiar position on the con
tinent, of such a connection, would be
all in fa- or of the Canadian Pacific
railway, which would derive a very
large traffic from such connection. It
would be of immense advantage to our
farmers and traders in bringing a valuable class of population and plenty of
customers to this side ofthe line. But
all this is dependent at present on Vic
toria, which will oppose this railway by
overy means legitimate or otherwise,
and in this   our people  will   see   that
he two sections of the province are
diametrically opposed, and will con
tiuue to be so while the seat of Gov
eminent remains on the island. No
possible arguments touching the justice
and future advantage to the province
generally can have any influence on
honest John (now a Viclorion) or any
of the clique to which he is united; we
must fight united for our rights, or we.
shall be beaten. Our readers can now
understand why it is all important that
our candidates should be carefully
chosen, and that every voter should be
interviewed on the subject, and, where
possible, bifl %-btA-ecurod for the proper
man. If we desired to point to a glar
ing injustice to this the great portion
of the province, it is to the ridiculously
unequal amount of representation ac
corded to us in order to keep us sub
ject to the arrogant little city of Victoria. Although we have only one
member more than the island for the
whole of this immense province com
prised in the mainland, by great care
and union we cun carry tho measure
that will give us our freedom, and we
can assure the islanders that we shall
not emulate their gross selfishness
when legislating for the Province. Our
motto will be the general good and
death to corruption and clique rule.
On Saturday Uwt we, in coinprtny with
Metwrs. J. M. Week anil A. W. Wilhert, interviewed Capt. Junes, of British ship
"Portia" on the merits of I'ort Moody
Harhor. We found thtt Captain a gentleman of great experience, especially iu
maritime affairs, and exceedingly courteous
and communicative. We iuformed him that
whereas attempts have been, and are still
being made to pn-judice the puhlic mind
against our harbor, the published opinions
of experienced navigators might, to a certain
degree, counteract such pernicious influence
which is being so industriously spread to
the injury of I'ort Moody and the Province
at large. He replied: "There is anchorage
of the very best quality for 300 large-sized
merchant ships at one time, or, in other
words, the capacity is adequate for all the
commerce of Liverpool. Ships can enter
this harbor at any stage of the tide, and
anchor in perfect safety along side each other
in close proximity. This cannot he done iu
the far fumed harbor of Liverpool. KntrAiice
must he made at certain stages of the wnter,
and the cummotion of tho waters consequent
On the strong tides prevalent necessitate
much greater space for anchorage to prevent
vessels fouling each other. Port Moody is a
natural dock. In contrasting this harbor
with Knglish Hay he said: "English Bay iu
uot safe without a breakwater and on account of the ebb tide the harbor would have
a teuilciicy to fill with sand. 1 should prefer to come to Port Moody rather than lie
ill Knglish Bay without a breakwater. I
would charter a vesstd from Liverpool as
cheaply to Port Moody as to Knyli-h Bay,
for tho reason fhat whenever I can sail into
English Bay I can do likewise to Port
Moody, and if I am obliged to tow in, the
difference would amount to but a trifle." T«>
the question as to whether he experienced
any difficulty in making entrance through
tlie s criii'l narrows he replied: "none what-
evur, Two of the largest ships could pass
each other nt low tide." Ho expressed astonishment that such questions should ever
huve been raised except for a mercenary

Tho demand of the French Government
for a fresh credit to support an aggressive
war iu Madagascar gave rise on Thursday to
the most exciting debate witnessed in the
Chamber of deputies since the Kerry Cabinet
was shattered. Significant of popular reaction in the coming general election against
tho costly policy of colonial expansion was
the fact that, in a Legislature committed to
the programme of adventure, M. Clemonceau
managed to array a large minority against
the waste of national resources upou Bchemes
of-distant conquest.
That the position tuken by M. Cleni'iiceau
will be much more favorably viewed in the
country at large than in a Chamber which
has ceused to faithfully reflect public opinion
is no lunger doubtful, since tin. gravity of the
burden laid upon the taxpayers by the Tonquin expedition has become widely known.
The amount of mnm-y sunk in the rice
swnmpsof Tonquin ll acknowledged to exceed
■1100,000,000, while large debta are still outstanding, and the ruinous outflow must go
On 80 long as a force equivalent  to a   whole
army corps ii maintained in Farther India.
When the French peasant and Fiench artisan
are presently invited to pronounce judgment
at tlie ballot box, they are nut likely to condone a prodigal misuse uf energies whieh
they feel thut tbo nati<m should concentrate
on the work of self-regeu era tion and self-
defence. Nor are they likely to sanction a
second speculation of the kind iu Madagascar.
It is an interesting coincidence that the
view of distant and extravagant adventure
so effectively maintained by M. Clemcncean
is earnestly defended in tlie last number of
the Revue des Deux Afondes by M. Cherbuliez,
under hia familiar pseudonym of G. Valhert.
The latter points out that for two centuries
two distinct lines of foreign policy have beeu
adopted at different epochs by French statesmen, aud with widely different effect on the
welfare of France, The one programme kept
iii'view tbe consolidation and husbandnlent
of the national resources and applied them
to one purpose only, the attainment of the
country's natural frontiers. Theso were the
aims steadily pursued to the well-grounded
;lory and sound aggrandisement of France

action with tbe now famous scandal case.
Strong social and political influence are
working to prevent a public trial. Sir Chas.
Dilke is completely prostrated und has retired to the country. The lady concerned is
related to Mrs. -Ashton Dilke. Hie injured
husband is an active Radical and formerly
held a minor oliice. It is reported that lie
insists upon a divorce.to vindicate his honor,
damages being no object to him. His wife
received a dowry of £100,000 from her father,
who is a member of tho House of Commons.
Thp lady is much younger than her husband,
and thoy have no family. The affair is the
sole topic of conversation iu clubs and social
circles. Inteise regret over the eclipse of
Sir Charles Dilke is felt in all political sections. _
A profound pensatiou has. been excited in

not die of apoplexy, tint that he was shot

What does the President of the company

Hon. Sir Alex. Campbell—Tbey borrow it
aud agree to returu it in six m -nths—• in duly.
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes Ve-., it will be returned in all probability as quickly as tht
money grant'-d to the Grand Trunk Railway.
We have $.'.0,000,000 there, and it is likely
to remain there for all time. 1 do not want
to decry the company, or have that charge
laitl to me, but I am us confident as I stand
here that this country will never see one
dollar of the advance which ban been made
to the Canadian Pacific Railway Company,
including tliat $f>,000,000, paid back. Wc
are giving it to them as a gift; they are not
a company, they are merely contractors for
the Government, and I believe now is the
time for the Government to take possession
of the Canadian Pacilic Railway, complete,
equip nnd run it in the interests of the country. Now is the time, because it is only a
few months, in my opinion, until it will be
compelled to do it any way.
Hon. Mr. McDonald—Will the lion, gentleman refer to section 7 of the Bill?
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—I have read that Bill
very carefully, and my bon. friend may be
looking through one pair of spectacles and I
am looking through another pair, nnd those
I am looking through suit me remarkably
Hen. Mr. Macdonald—They are not green
I hope.
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—In moving this roso-
lotion I am asking nothing but fair play and
common justice that ought to be nccorded
lo me aud that ought to lie accorded to those
who have been misled; and I expect that
this House will give that measure of justice
that iH dne-to them. Take this contract that
was entered into, and as the right hon. gentleman, the leader of the other Honse, stated
in that branch of the legislature, the Act and
the contract entered into with the Pacific
Railway Company make provision thnt those
terminal works tout I ask for shall be erected
at Pi rt Moody. What does it say in the
10tb clause of the contract?—
"Jn further consideration of the premise?
the Government shall also grant to the com
puny tho lands required for the road-bed of
the railway, and for its stations, station*
[[rounds, workshops, flock ground aud water
frontage at the termini or navigable waters,
buildings, yards and other appurtenances required For the convenient and effectual construction and working ot the railway, in so
far as suob land shall bo vested in the Government*"
Tiie Government do not dispute that they
selected Port  Moody a** the terminus,  years
IgO, and th.ii they have g me on hading the
public to believe that it   would he equipped
with the public buildings necessary for h
great railway terminus.   I have beeirauoused
of quarreling with tho Government because
the obmpany were going to extend the line
beyond   Port   Moody     f  have no desiiv to
quarrel with tin* Government, and mmli Lett
with any member of this House.    I do not
think i can  Ih. fairly charged  with being a
quarrelsome person;   but while I take that
position 1 consider that I would be unworthy
of being n member of this House, or of being
one  of its three   representatives from the
1'revincc of Uritish Columbia, unless 1 s tot id
up in my place and   raised my voice in   de-
fens ■ of those who havo been misled—those
wbo have been Wronged, grossly wronged, if
the vile scheme of this extension is carried
out.    The position that 1 stand in to-day is
this:    Hundreds have interviewed me, and I
have  received letters from   parties that  I
never saw asking me   "Is   Port Moody the
terminus of the Pacific Railway 7'1    ''Is it a
safe place to invest our means in?"    I iuv i
riably referred them to the solemn announcement made by Sir Charles Topper and  tho
Government, that  Port Moody was the terminus.    I Said, "I can give yon that, and I
think it is quite sufficient;  but in addition
to that I am safe in way ing that I  have tho
most  positive   private evidence   that  Port
Moody is the terminus."   Ou  the strength
ol that assurance tbey.iuveated their niouey,
some of them their all, nnd hon. gentlemen
can understand the position that I am in.
They nu doubt look to me as tbe pers n who
misled them, oz to a certain  extent misled
them in investing their means there.    That
is the false position that I am in.    That is
the false position that the Government of
the country has placed me iu, and all those
whp> have invested at Port Moody.    We are
told that it was only when Mr. Van  Home
came  to  this  country that they discovered
that Port Moody rvea not quite 8b good a
harbor as the Pacific Railway people would
like it to be.    .Notwithstanding   tiie  speech
of Sir Charles Tupper whifch I  quoted here
about a week ago—and thut speech was not
giving ho* own views merely,  but the views
of the  highest  naval authorities that had
vjsitrd those waters on the Pacific c» est, extending over a period of 2o year*;—fiotwithstanding   all   that,   when   Mr.- Van   Home
comes over here hegoedout to Burrard Inlet,
io Port Moony and Knglish Bay, for fiys or
•dx  hours, auit" he. with   his would-lie  all-
seeing eye,  could detect at a glance that
these-*authorities ore sll wrongs that Port
Moody ia not a go*d harlv-r, lhat Goal Harbor is a little better, and that Knglish Ray,
exposed as it is to the prevailing winds and
tides is the best     In conn-ctiou « ith this I
would draw tbe attention of the  House to
tbe fact that tbe  Minister of Justice, hi re

for thinking so. As I said before, the Southern and Central Pacific Railways run to San
Kiauci.-eo. Thoy have been in existence for
a number of years, aud if they could not attract a greater amount of tr.ide than Wonld
warrant more than one Btearn.ship iu two
week'.,arc we, with a population of 0,000,000,
gping to attract more tiade than the 65,000,-
if p i in the country to the Botith of us? I do
not think it is reasonable to suppose that we
will. Then, there is the Northern Pacific,
only 100 miles in u direct lino south of the
terminus of the Canadian Pacific Railway,
Is there any line of steamers running in
connection with that road to any distant
foreign country? No. For these reasons I
am sorry to think that the Asiatic trade is
more Imaginary than anything else, Should
the I'aiindiaii Pacific Railway obtain all the
Asiatic trad'., it would not --in nnt to two
car loads a d iy.    I had a very delicate 0Om«
pliment paid me a day or two ago In this
House, The Minister of JuaticesJtated that
there was no sense In asking for the erection
of the engine boose and other terminal buildings at I'ort Moody. I do not claim to have
any more common senae, probably, than is
:i try, bat I think if 1 were senseless in
asking thut the Syndicate ami the Government- should -airy out what they solemnly
ogrei 1 to in 1881, surely there wss no sense
on the part of the Mini ter of Jiibtice and
iii acting Minister of Railways tv-iiig to
k 11_ and lulling for tenders for the erection
of those houses at Port Moo ly ap to tba
J-ith of May last. I say that it I were sense*
leas in asking fur tbat, I think the Government were s great deal more s>, yes, di-h u-
est, in calling for tenders for a work that
th'-y did not intend to build. There is no
'»ther matter I wish to refer to, but 1 will
defer it until tbe Uiniater ol Justice i-- In

Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—I do not wish tode-'
tain tbe House any longer, but there is one
thing I wish to press upon tbe attention of
hon. gentlemt.ii, and that is, that we are
askecf to give $700,000 for tbe purpose of
extending the l'a ih-; Railway to Coal Harlior, aud the incentive for tbe extension of
tbat road is, not to meet the Asiatic trade,
that has been put forth as a plea; but tlie
incentive is to get 8,000 acres of land, 6,000
of which has been given by at least two'
members of tie corrupt, land jobbing local
legislature of British Columbia.
Hon. Mr. Power-Hear, hear. .
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—Yes, I say it, and I
can prove it. I say that is the incentive;'
that is the reason why the Vice President of
the Pacific Railway thought it advisable to
extend the road to English Bay. As I read'
a few d :ys ago from the correspondence that
passed between the Vice-President of the
Canadian Pacific Railway Company and the
Local Legislature, when these negotiations'
were going on for the acquisition of the
0,000 scrws of land, he requested the Local
f upper, thnt it would OOtt ln-ui one to two
million*, of dollar:-, for tbe erection of a
breakwater or to make anything like a harbor of Knglish Ray, so that there is a direct
loss, tut all of the money for tbe erection of
a harbor must come out of   the   I) 'minion
Treasury.    That would be  a  direct loss to
the  Dominion of   5,000,000,  a  considerable
sum. which ought to be applied towards recouping the vast amount that that road has
already cost, the country.    Tbe Minister of
Justice is now in his plaee, and I will reter
to the fact that he stated, a short time ago,
his impression of Port Moody as a townsite
I remember meeting that bon. gentleman at
Port  Moody.     If   my  memory serves me
right it was about two years ago.   lie stated
that h s impression of Port Moody was not a
very fuvorable one:   that he thought it was
not a very suitable place for a  large town,   in the other House  by  Mr.   Blafc*V, To the
■'Mini' ot in making that over, to transfer
it to trustees to be appointed by the company, and those trustees are the Hon. I >. A.
Smith aud Mr. Angus.    Why do they want"
them made over to trustees ?    He goes on to*
explain—so that the  lei attaching tothe
Canadian  Pacific  Railway would not apply
to them.    I say if we are to give them |-00,*
(HIH for the extension of that road, is it anything more than fair that the road ami lands,
BUOnld be included in the security this country should have on  this road to sa\e themselves?
Hon. Mr. Macdonald—That would not do."
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—Not to Bcrve their
purpose, I am aware of that. .
Hon. Mr. Macdonald--They want to selP
town lots, snd if they were encumbered*
tbey could not dispose of them.
Hon. Mr. Mclnnes—Yes, as I said the
"ther day, tbey have six miles sijuare plottedT
out iu beuutiful maps, aud that is to be put
on the English market and the markets of
the United States and Canada. 1'hey call
the place Vancouver, a euphonious name,
and it is to be the terminus of the'C inndian.'

the duty of the Government to erect the"

with tlie people of this country. Yesterday

statements in reply to an amendment moved

at Poit Moody ?
