Robert Edbury hushed his song when
he perceived, for the first time, his very
close proximity to the house and the
"The substantial home of some substantial farmer," he said to himaelf.
' I had better move on, or his daughters
may think 1 am serenading them."
Too late! Just then a window was
open softly overhead, and a lady's face
appeared at it. In the rush nf bright

Passing arm-in-arm down the
crowded dancing-room of the Spa the
next evening, with his friend Norton,
Robert Edbury s quick ear wus caught
by a note wliich at once arrested his
attention. He had said that he should
know that divine voice again, hear it
wherever or whenever he might, and he
was not mistaken. A certain remon
strance lay in its tone : not to say disbelief.
"J"But who could it have been, Robert,
if it was not you? It frightens ine to
think of it. It—it wss somebody of
your height and figure, li must have
been yourself, Robert."

rippled lightly on the air. "But do go

(Jood night."
"One moment," cried Robert Edbuf-y,
arnestly, as he leaped from his horse,
fsstenert the bridle tn the gate, and
stepped inside beneath the window,
where gleamed that mysterious, enchanting face. "Won't you give me
a Hower—you can easily reach that
clustering bine by your casement.
Perhaps—perhaps I shall wish to ask
you sometime io forgive me some great
offence. Won't you give me a Hower
for a token?
"How strangely you talk. Of course
I would give you a flower ; but these
are only honeysuckles, and you know
we promised to give each other nothing
but roses. But stay I'—the pretty voice
caught itself. "1 bave i. bunch of
violeison my table.    Would you   like
them I"
'Anything'.--anything tbat coiucs
trom your hands I" whispered Robert,
more sincerely than he alw.ys spoke.
The bright face disappeared a moment from the windowandthen returned
—a white hand gleamed in the    moon-
"There, take thom, and now you must
go I Quick! 1 hear some one stirring.
Suppose it should be mamma! Good
night, dear Robert."
The window was softly closed, and
in on instant after Robert was groping
for the violets in the wet grass. He
found them where they fell. But, as
they were falling, the quick eyes of
Robert Edbury had discerned something,
bright as a star, falling too. The small
strip of grass where he had stood was
entirely in ihe shade, hidden from the
light by the large horse-chestnut trees
and he had to gr.pe in the dark for this
glittering thing. An instant's search revealed it to be what   he  suspected : a
"He wus egcntkman, lam sure"—
with a stress upon the word. "You
need uot be put out, Robert."
Robert Edbury turned: aud saw close
betide him, leaningon I hut. i it he r Robert's
arm, u young girl surpassingly beautiful.
Roses mingled with the bright gold of
her hair, shone in the bosom of her dress,
and a hunch of them was somehow
intertwined with the slender gold wrist
chain ,-itiiii-l i-rI lo her fan.
Mr. Edhury caught his bieuth, as.
rurning her face, tho girl's soft violet-
blue eyes rested lor a moment unrecog
uizingly on his.
"Who is she?" he whispered eagerly
lo his friend. "How lovely she is!
What is her name ? By heaven! I
never believed in divine loveliness
before; but here it is, pure anil undetiled.
What is her name?"
- at
answer     "She snd her   mother live
the Grove, half a mile nut of town."
"A farm-house," remarked Robert.
'No, it   is not.    It looks not unlike
one.    They   are   people   of   property.
Yes, she is very pretty.    I'll introduce
you if you like."
Half au hour later Robert Edbury
was bending over the young lady's hand
in the pretty secluded gloom of a vine-
wrea'hed window. They were as much
alone as it is possible for one to be in
the heart of a busy, unheeding crowd.
The first notes of a Strnuss waltz were
beckoning the dancers, aud gay couples,
hurrying went laughing by.
"You are not engaged for the this
valse ?"    Said Robert, eagerly.
Some remembered cadence of his
voice struck the young gill's memory,
and, forgetting to answer him, she
looked at hini doubtfully. While a
rosy blush swept over her forehead,
Bbe half knew him and half did not.
"Will you let me look at your card?"
he pursued, as with perfect courtesy in
his voice and manner he took the bit of
gilt antl enamelled pasteboard, which
she hurl rucked away amid the roses at
her wrist
•'I—I half promised this dance to
Robert," she stammered, flinging a
quick glance over her shoulder into the
swaying crowd.
"Then I shall claim it," answered
the otlier Robert, with an audacious
smile. He stooped and picked up a
rosebud that had fallen, and then held
it triumphantly before the flushed and
startled face by his side.
"See!" he said, gaily; "1 saved it
from being crushed under foot. "Will
you not give it to nie?"
But she reached out her hand impulsively. *'I—I never give roses to
strangers,' she replied, with a cold,
frightened, angry air. "They are Mr.
Robert Stonor's roses. Give it back to
me, if you please."
"My name is Robert, too," he said,
in the same gaily tender voice, though
his dark face changed a little at her
frank confession. "My name is Robert,
too, Miss Chassdanc. Therefore—may
1 not claim the rose?"
The soft blue eyes, tilled with tears,
flew up and met his. She knew hiui
then. Frightened and ashamed, and
trembling from head to foot, she ro>e
impulsively to her feet: he took a step
backwards | and they stood so, facing
each other a moment in the gay, unheeding crowd.
"I know you now," gasped Jessie.
"How dare you speak to me again—
you are very presuming, sir I will not
bear it. Give me back lay flowers and
leave ine."
"Nay," he said gcntly.jbut in the tone
of a master, "is there cause for anger ?"
And in a low, reasoning, persuasive
voice, he spoke to her for some moments,
and the rising spirit was calmed. In
spite of herself, and against her will,, _.. , .
she was becoming irresistibly attracted away her hand
to this man. ' '    "l ]ov" •"-"•.

at Mr. Robert Stonor. I have offended
him. He is angry Iiecause I danced
with you. Oh. what shall I do? He
is my cousin, and has ill health, anil he
must not he excited.'
Robert Edhury turned, and sa*
standing near him that other Robert,
who threatened to be—or perhaps was
—no mean rival, His ill healih was
evident. One hand wee pressed to his
side us if to still some pain there, and
on his handsome blond face, whicli was
marked by lllnliislriknlilr traces of continued sickness, a cloud of jealous
anger rested heavily.
The eyes of the two men met, and each
knew the other for a rival.
A half smile of siorn us he looked

like this, a man has ni pity for the
ailments of another. With a grave
face he took from his pocket the rose

"On what score does she object?

"Do vou think Miss Ohassdane cares
for him?"
"1 don't think she loves him, Edbury

to me that she   likes   him   more   as a

weeks' sojourn he had intended had
more than doubled itself, For he had
learnt to love her passionately ; and all
the world might see it lor ought he
carol. She. too, might sen it. if she
rhose ; but whether she did or not, he
eould nol tell, judging from the grave
and sweet dignity which sh- met and
bore back his eager attentions.
At, length there came uu evening
when he wss determined to put his
fate to the lest : to go on in this uncertainty was worse than torment,
Tliey had not. beeu much disturbed by
Roliert Stonor : a paroxysm of his coin
plaint had confined th.t gentleman to
his own home.
And so, Robert Edbury went up to
the old gtthlei, house, hefore which**his
horse had halted that lirst night, and
sought an interview with Miss Ohassdane. She was quite alone. The long
French window by which sh- sal, was

fair, gold hair and the roses in her
"How beautiful she is!" he thought

Tub Calamit. AT Nanaimo. — The
terrible disaster that ocein-ied at the Van .
couver Co'a. mine by which about one hundred aud seventy human beings were
hurried into eternity, must deeply impress
every community in the Province. When
we consider the terrible grief iclt by the
widows, children and other relations of the
unfortunate men, and the consequent
deprivation of the means of livelihood
sulie-red by those who were dopeirdentou them,
Ws cannot help feclina tbo stningest sympathy for the survivors. It will be a graceful act, and in reality a duty incumbent on
on us, to fet up some entertainment, aside
from an individual subscriptions, in aid of
these afflicted fellow citit.ns. Tho fire at

The Crown prosecutor agreed to pay the

The time for that division of the year
called spring Is here weeks ago hm as yet
few of its accompanying benefits, and pleasures have nut in an appearance. Noticeably
absent is dry or warm weather and the
"ohlest inhabitant'' now truly declares, as 1
believe, it is altogether pheiiominal, and
never before did this part of B. C, have
such abundance of rain, mud and disagreeable weathor. Vory little gardening has
been done and other crop prospects nre like
wise diminished from what must now be a
late seeding gonerally, and accordingly .a
lute harvest. Poets and great writers
annually sing songs of praise—though they
sometimes make yon feel like Mark Twain's

aspirations content themselves with telling
when tho spring frog's voice is heard in the

Of our navy the Times says: —"No on-

ihe front ns the Navy was in Nelson's
day. Compared with our forefathers
we are, of course, a very wonderful
people, but other people hail fore
fathers, and other people are liuilding
on thu foundations they laid. The only
effective reply to those who disparage
our guns and ships is to slum thai
there is nothing of their owu da'e to
surpass theni. If we might venture to
criticise such august persouages as
modern artillerists we should bn dis-
posed to hold that they are a good deal
too easily caught by vulgnr ndmiration
of their hignesB. ft would da them

a ten inch gun is as big as we care to
have, and it would redound infinitely
more to their credit, as men of science,
to get improved results out of lhat

accommodation so long and so loudly
called for ? Our readers are all aware
that our hospital is the institution which
affords aid to the suffering *>oor from
every iiortion of this very large district,
and, indeed, from every portion of the
interior Of the Mainland. The poor
settler struggling to hew for himself and
i family a home in the primitive forest,
I meets with an accident ; his domestic
comforts are not such as can meet the
necessities of proper treatment to his
wounds, even if he has the means to
employ the services of a medical man
from this city ; the only resource to
preserve to his family the bread winner,
is to send him to our hospital where he
can obtain food, shelter, medicine and
surgical treatment, free of expense, until, re-established in health, he can return to his labor. 'The miner who has
given his strength and his best years in
exploring the country for the precious
minerals, that will make those who
come after him. and this country,
wealthy, worn down by privation and
exposure, seeks the shelter of our hospital, in most cases, to die in peace. But
possibly the greatest service rendered to
humanity by our hospital, is in its unintentional utilisation, as a home for incurables. There are now quite a number
of poor fellows who are the victims of
paralysis and wholly unable to earn a
livelihood, who, if turned out of the
hospital, could only lie down and die in
the streets ; they are the waifs and
strays from all parts of the world and
have no claim upon anyone in this
country. If the jubilee of Her most
gracious Majesty Queen Victoria, was
fittingly celebrated in this country by the
erection of an institution to aid the suffering and helpless, the construction of
a home for incurables would certainly
nave been the most appropriate application of funds collected from the charitable, and loyalty could in no way be
so nobly distinguished.    With so many

terms. Although our community is
yet small, we have no doubt that a great
effort, and a successful one, would have
been made, lo raise the requisite complement, and by such means enabled
our people to meet the constant demand
for hospital accommodation, which,
with all our desire to succor the ailing
and helpless, we are at present unable
to afford. It has been stated somewhere lhat the amount of our private
subscriptions have been very small and
thai wo have left lhe whole task of taking the wheel from the rut, to J upiter.
This is untiue. The subscriptions from
all sources, including hospital Sunday
collections, amount to a very respectable sum, and formerly, these sources
of income were generously supplemented
by liberal private subscriptions, till Mr.
Robson and his friends in this city,
turned the excellent institution into a
political machine and disgusted the willing helpers in the good work. It cannot
be pretended that the local Government
were ignorant of the state of affairs in
respect to our hospital ; reports were
sent to them regularly, and appeals for
more generous aid were constantly
being made to them. It was shown
that the institution was incapable of
rendering the aid and assistance demanded by common humanity as
there was not a sufficiency of beds and
bedding to furnish the unoccupied
space in the hospital, and the most distressing cases and most deserving
applicants, were reluctantly turned
away from its doors. With this knowledge, the local Government offers a
premium to Victoria to build for itself,

In speaking thus, we do so without one
spark ol jealousy ; it is most creditable
to the people of Victoria that they not
only take a pride in rendering their
city the handsomest and most attractive
in the Province, but their alacrity in
subscribing to the erection of an in
stitution so creditable to humanity as a
hospital, is alike a worthy testimony to
their kind heartcdness and their loyalty.
Our concern is with the local Government, that mockery of legislation which,
by some absurd perversion of terms, is
looked upon as the collective wisdom of
the country ; because, the four ministers
are simply the executive chosen by the,
so-called, representatives of the people.
How and why the people's represent*-
tives should have chosen men like the
present ministers to carry out their
decrees, may be, perhaps, explained by
the old adage—"like master like man."
One thing is perfectly clear they arc-
wholly unfit for the vocation. Imagine,
a minister looking alter the general
welfare bestowing—no matter in what
form—the public money u|>on one community in lavish generosity and actually
taking from another a considerable sum
granted for the support of a hospital !
It is almost incredible that the local
Government knowing how iii.uJrijiirite
the sum granted to the Koy.il Columbian
Hospital was, should grant twenty
thousand to Victoria, and deduct one
thousand from us! We have heard it
remarked that this shocking |>ervcrsion
of all the principles of government, was
the result of John Robson's spite to this
community for electing some one who
was opposed to him, politically. If this
is really the case, there can be no
punishment too severe for him. We
knowthe smallness, meanness and hypO-
crisy ofthe man, but that his colleagues
should consent to such heartless cruelty
—not to the voters who returned an
opposition member but—to the poor
suffering and destitute patients of our
hospital, is beyond parallel. It is well
known that ministers for some reason
best known to themselves, have not, as
they have often been recommended to
do, thrown over that Jonah —Robson,
whom they all dislike. If people will
cling to a monster they must expect to
die with it.
The well understood policy of Russia
is being slowly, but surely, carried out
in every direction. The unfortunate
Regents in Bulgaria are being worried
into submission to the Czar and they are
now reduced to the verge of despair by
continued intrigues at home and the
disinclination of any of the powers to
interfere lest they should be embroiled
with Russia and bring about the great
war which they all so earnestly desire
to avoid. We note that in Armenia
the Russians are going to establish a
monastery for the reception of certain
monks of the Greek Church, which is
really the cunning artifice of the Muscovite to obtain a footing in that portion
of the Sultan's domains. In course of
time an excuse will be created for defending the monks and that part of the
country will be taken under Russian
■,iuiec.iuu. in Aignanistan the Russian troops are gradually approaching
the frontiers and are thus lending countenance and support to the rebel tribes
who are attempting to throw off their
allegiance to the Ameer. 'This potentate, however, is preparing for the reception of the invaders by sending
troops and supplies to Herat and other
points threatened, and in this he will be
supported by British troops, now being
concentrated at Peshawur and Quetta,
which will presently be pushed on to
Candahar. They will doubtless be employed in suppressing the Ghilzais and
their allies in the event of th ;se rebels
assuming a formidable menace to the
Ameer. The British troops will also
prevent any forward movement of Russian troops which might be attempted
if the British were not within hailing
distance. All these movements on the
part of the Russians are no doubt attended with enormous expense which
bears out the statements we have made
in these columns, that the resources of
Russia so far from being in a desperate condition, are still very great
notwithstanding the late placing upon
the market of a Russian loan, which,
we suspect, is intended simply to deceive the world. 'The story that France
had offered Russia an alliance offensive
and defensive, which was declined, is
mere nonsense ; an alliance has long
ago been effected between these two
nations, and they are only waiting till
the opportune moment, to carry out
their plans. The nations to whom they
will be opposed are fully aware of their
schemes, although they keep up a surface ol perfect tranquility. Had the
arrangements of these two powers been
further advanced, the Schnaebels affair
would have been seized upon as a cause
of quarrel, but the preparations are not
complete. In England every precaution is being adopted for the coming
struggle ; the recent conference in London, at which delegates from all the
colonies vrere present to consult with
the ministers of England, no doubt involved the formation of a great plan for
the defence of the several dependencies
of the empire. The real business of
the conference was transacted in secret
and we shall perhaps never know what
took place, but we may rest assured
that a system of mutual defense was
projected and the weak points of the
different colonies will be strengthened.
