I had been pondering all the while

after b puuse, "let me consider of it for

What should I dot It wag next to im-
possible for me to huve another interview with Lady Anne befoie leaving.
1 thought it, on the whole, advisable
not to alarm In., bu<| Icions by any such

had some little Acquaintance, and with
him suggest sueh measures as were
neoetsary to secure the safety not only
of the baronet, bill his wretched lady.

"Mind me, doctor," said he abruptlv,
his features clouding over with a strange
expression. "I—I—will have no violence used."
"Violence! my dear Sir Henry! violence! God forbid!" I exclaimed, with
unaffected amazement.

"Hollo! hark ye, fellow! 6topl sjop!"

Every room,   however, we explored in

The   back  drawing room  we examined
again, hoping to find sonic note or letter
that  might   give   us  a   clue   to   the
baronet's   retreat.     It   commanded    a
line   view of the   grounds;   and after
standing   for some   moments   at  the
window,   narrowly   scrutinising every
shrub or tree that Wfl   could fancy Sir
Henry larking   either in or   near, -we
turned together In council   once more.
Where  could   he bel    Had he   leally
left the place!    We cat our eyes on the
mantelpiece and   table, on which were
scattered various papers,   notes, cards,
6.C., and one or two    volumes, with the
baronet's    manuscript   notes   in  the
margin —- and   sighed.       This,   Mr.
Ooutbrope informed us, was Sir Henry's
favorite room, because of the prospect
it commanded.    We  could,  however.
see nothing  to cast a ray of   information upon the  subject of onr inquiries.
We determined, then,   ft commence a
vigorous search of the outer premises,
but were   delayed   for a time   by the
violence of the.   storm.    The afternoon
had been   very gloomy, and at   length

Our Mails Atuitf.—The temper of our
citizens has been much disturbed of late ou
account of unwarrantable deprivation their
mail matter. The mail boat from Victoria
ou the 4th lost, was behind regular timo,
hence the carrier failed to get it to this oliice
on that day, but, of course, very naturally,
its arrival way expected on Saturday. But
Saturday came and passed, aud, although
about half a dozen Stages came, yet no mail
arrived. Many people went to the Post
Office throughout the day, but all were
doomed to disappointment, Some were inclined to censure Mr. Austin, tho new
carrier, whilst others on turning away,
siurily albwed tliejr face* to apeak the .lis
appointment and chatriu they deeply felt,
On monday morning Mr. Austin came again
bringing no mail yet! And to the Interrogation as to the cause, he stated tint he
applied to the Now Westminster poht
muter for the Port Moody mail and it was
refused him. It is not presumed that Port
Moody people havo any important business,
so the expense of. maintaining a mail line
may as well bo discontinued altogether. It
ceitainly is the duty of the post authorities
to forward tho mails! as promptly as possibly,
and consequently steps will undoubtedly be
taken to enforce a more strict compliance
with the law. If the New Westminster post
master is guilty of thu charge of unnecessarily detaining our mails wlien called
for by the cunior, we, iu his case, should recommend the application of a good dose of
"civil service reform" as the most effective
remedy, which would very probably resnlf
iu his removal from oliice.

Hon.    Mr.    Macdonald—That   wa.
touched by the Minister of JtistieO*
Hon. Mr. Power—It was touched by the
Minister of Justice, but he did not deal with
it iu a satisfactory way. The Mini-der stated
tliat there was no intention, as lor as he
knew, to place tho buildings anywhere except at Port Moody. If there is any doubt,
aud there Appears to be doubt us to the exact position of this matter,'and as to the
relative power:, of the (ioverument and the
I 'oiup.iny in connection with the location ol
those terminal buildings, that doubt should
be removed; and the proper way to remove
it is by an amendment to this bill.   It is
true that the Minister of Justice haa slated
that he knows nothing of any such proposed
alteration in tho location of tlie termini]
buddings but the lion, gentleman does not
know everything that in going 00 between
the Canadian Pacific Railway Company nnd
the Railway Department] and tho hon,
member from New Westminster has aright
to use an extract from a paper which is regarded as the organ ol the Canadian Pacilic
Rnilway. Jin told us whit had been done
by tho Vice-President of the Canadian Pa-
eilii' l.uiUvuy in connection with the Local
Government of British Columbia, audio the
f ice of tlur express wording of the statute
Yellow Head Pass was abandoned and Kicking Horse Pass was chosen nt the request of
tho Ompuuy. Unless we get things In a
very clear and positive way there is reason
to believe that the Company will succeed in
haying their own will; and it appears that
the will of the Company is that those ter
initial buildings shall be located at English
Bay or Coal Harhor. I think wo have a
right to protect the good faith of the Government, just ns we have a right to protect
it in connection with the shareholders of
tho C.P. R. The Minister said that in one
sense Port Moody was the western terminus,
and then said again that he thought the
Company had a right to extend the road under their charter. The hon. gentleman from
Lunenburg has doalt with the legal aspect of
this matter already but there are one or two
points which I may be pardoned if I refer to.
The statute of 1874 provides that the western terminus shall be at some point in British Columbia on the Pacific coast, to be determined by the Government in Council.
There were two orders- in -Council passed,
one by the Mackenzie administration in May,
1878, and one by the present administration
in October, 1879, locating the terminus at
Port Moody. In the statute of 1S81, and
in I bo contract with the Government, and in
the private Act- the Act which is embodied
in that contract—Port Moody is spoken of
as the terminus; and I venture to my that a
court would hold that Port. Moody was the
legal terminus of the road, and that the
Government have no right to locate the terminal buildings anywhere else. The Minister of Justice seems to think that thero is
some doubt about that. Now, iB there not a
proper and common sense way to remove
that doubt by adopting the amendment of
the hon. gentleman from Westminster, or an
amendment in that direction? As to the
wording of the amendment, 1 am not altogether satisfied with it; but an amendment
to that efteet will be right and proper. It
will remove the doubts of the property
owners there, and will satisfy the country
that the terminus, as far as the Government
is concerned, is fixed at Port Moody. I do
not see wfoy the Minister of Justice should
object to confirming by statute what he confirmed here by his atatement. He has on
two or three occasions confirmed the statement, that the western terminus was fixed at
Port Miwidy,  and-th ore is uo reason why we
should not place that statement in this BN.

road arc over five and a half millions of do!
bus '»lii.-i year already, and if socfa is the
ease &1 I his early pi riod In the history of the

Interested, not only at Port Moody but in

In whieh 1 am personally interested, I have
put my own interests aside. 1 have not
solicited the vote or support of any hon.
gentleman,  bul f would be unworthy my

op in my place end dealers my views to the
best of toy ability, claiming the Independent
judgment of hon. gentlemen on tho merit** of
this ease, It those an not the duties of a
member of this House, then the functions of
bon. gentlemen   in this house arc limit."!.  If
not entirely gone, There in soarcely a public
qm-Ni|,i|i discusHsd in thii Chamber in which
OM ol ns are not directly interested. We
cannot deal with questions allceting public
land', <>r timber limits or bank stock, or
railways, or telegraphs, that some of ns are
not Interested in, Md not only tbat, but we
all know that Ministers of tlio Crown have
pel'*,,.ii '1 interests in questions of the kind I
havo just named, aud we find members of
Parliament taking fees end advocating inter
eats as counsel before Committees in this
House and in the other Branch of tho legislature, and this is the fir*>t time in my lift-
that I have ever been told that such a position as I havo taken here to-day is unusual,
or not consistent with the duties of a member of Parliament—especially after the calm,
dispassionate manner in which I have treated this question. I treated it simply from a
legal point of view, in the public interest-
not to restrict the Canadian Pacific Railway
but to aid them in the nfffects of this Bill.
I said if my private interests only were concerned, they should give way to the puhlic
good. I did not wish to restrict the company from extending their line from Port
Moody to Coal Horbor. If they have not
tho right to go to English Bay, we should
give it to them, and I felt from the first that
the company should not be embarrassed;
that we al', tliat Canada At large, have a
deep interest In it; that we all oonatder that
the early completion of that road is dear to
is, and especially to our development, ami I
houbl be sorry in any way to attempt to
embarrass the companv iu carrying out th< ir
mighty enterprise and what the country ex
pects from them, by intruding upon this
House my private interests. But I «ay this,
that the Canadian Pacific Railway and the
Government have contracted, and Parliament has given them tlio authority to make
Port Moody the terminus. We have the
declaration of the Government that Port
Moody was, and remains established, the
terminus, and beyond that we have no control, and wo had a right to take their statement as being correct, apart from the fact
th'-t Port Moody is by law the terminus;
therefore, all we ask, and the country have
a right to expect that demand, is that the
Government will carry out their pledgee,
and carry out the law, nnd construct those \
terminal buildings at Port Moody, regardless j
of where tho company may make their own \
terminus of the railway. I do not wish to !
impute motives to the hon. gentleman from
Victoria, but it is evident that he disregards
the law, that the prosperity of some of his
friends is not looke.i upon with any degree of
pride on Ins part, and if he could thwart the
interests of those gwi'buieu,  aiid el to ie   -., lootooaoot material resources.

question is—Who is to rule at Farwell)

The contest between the rival powers
looked serious Jor a week. At lirst
the local distillers were neutrals, but
alter a little hesitation they resolved
to join the party that obeys the orders
of the Hon. John Hobson, and it is
quite possible, that his policy will, be
triumphant at Farwell
The reports from Similkamcen continue favorable, but it is impossible to
judge of the value of mines by reports.
Those who wish to sell exaggerate,
and reports are sometimes circulated
by persons who wish to gather a crowd
in a place which they believn to be
suitable for a home market. The men
who are employed sliould wait awhile.
Rushing to the mines at this season of
the year is not a sign of common sense.
The Governor-General will be here

possible that he will be just in time to

Richard A. Proctor is in custody at
Victoria, oharged with the murder of a
man named Burke. The evidence is
circumstancial and strong enough to
justify his detention. Proctor, Orane
and Burke left Victoria on the 28th of
April in the sloop Fleetwing, bound
for Alaska. About a month ago Proctor returned to Victoria and had in
his possession a ring and other things
which have been identified as the property of Burke. Proctor says 'Burke
went up the river with a squaw to
start a ranch." The case demands a
searching investigation. If Burke cannot bo found, it is certain that Proctor
should remain in custody.
Despatches from the seat of war at
Farwell are comical. "Dominion Police Commissioner and three constables
of the Dominion force arrested and
safely lodged in jail." "The Dominion
police barricade! in their barracks
armed with rifles and 70 rounds of ball
cartridge." "Volunteers with arms in
their hands coining in to aid Stipendiary
Magistrate Bproat, who is resolved to
take by storm the tarrocks occupied by
the Dominion forces." The whole
proceeding at Farwell is an illustration
of the insignificance and incompetence
of our rulers.

In the New York Herald we find
the following:—"The Australian Colonies have commissioned Richard 0.
Baker, who is now in this city, to go
to London to consult with the home
government with reference to the transportation of mails to and from the
colonies. He says the Canadian Pacific company has sent an agent to
South Australia who has proposed to
transport mails by weekly service via
Port Moody, making the passage to
London iu thirty days. For the service
the Canadian Pacific demands $500,-

In an interview with the Sultan last
week Sir H D. Wolff read a message
from tbe Queen, who says she hopes to
aid his Sublimo Majesty to establish a
government in Egypt conducive to his
rights and the happiness of the Egypt
ian people. Tho Sultan maihi a gracious reply. Ho declared that he set a
high valuo on the friendship of Her
Majesty and the alliance of England.
And so it is evident that we aro to re-
tiro from Egypt and tho Soudan and
the Sultan is to be our agent and rule
according to orders issued at, London;
and this arrangement will satisfy the
great powers and leave the home government in complete possession of the
Und of the Pharoahs.
In a leading article published on
Monday, the London Morning Post
urges on the government the necessity
of making the great Northwest a home
for parsons who wish to leave the
United Kingdom. It proves very
clearly that the power of the Empire
may be increased by increasing the
population of our greatest and neai*est
colony with supplies of people from
Ten million pounds invested in a
business speculation in preparing homes
for emigrants in the great Northwest
would pay ten per cent, to the speculators and place one million British subjects in happy homes. It is time for
the home government to begin to think
that the distribution of population, if
judiciously done, will most assuredly
make the powei of the Empire irre-
sis table.
An English official, residing at Constantinople, has informed the home
government that Russia has made
overtures to the Sultan for an alliance,
and offers to secure to the Turk the

Michael Davitt appears disposed to
use his influence against the policy of
Parnell, but the Times in a leader says:
"He will find it difficult to fight against
an organization so compact and well
disciplined as that directed by Parnell,
but even if the contest were less unequal it is improbable that he would
secure any very large body of adherents. The nationalization of land
may have fascination for theorists, but
the Irish peasant is eminently practical
and cares nothing for a symmetrical
theory, but a great deal for the actual
possession of a piece oi the soil. Davitt has no chance against Purnell.
Wherever Irishmen possess land they
cling to it with a tenacity which leaves
remarkably little scope for social democracy."
At a great meeting of land-leaguers
in Kerry last week, the multitude
shouted, "Take the, landlords, give us
the land, and the question at issue between England nnd Ireland is settled
forever." Indeed the land was always
the cause of Irish discontent.
The Pall Mall Gazette says "Miss
Cleveland cannot quote Shakspeare accurately, and in this eflete old Island
we are obstinately conservative. Shakspeare never said 'All the world's a

multitude may quote as they please.
Anything will do. There is a very

From statistics published last week we
learn that th1 Union armies lost during
the war 360,000 men. Of this number
110,000 wore killed in battle, 225.000
died of disease and 5000 were drowned.
The war was more destmotive of life
than any thai has occurred since lhe fall
of the first Napoleon, and the cost was
enormous; a very terrible price to pay
for the suppres-ion ef slavery. One per
cent, of the money expended would
have purchased real liberty for every
slave in the south. But without the
war there would be no great crop nf
millionaires and self made men.
A son of Gen. Howard shot himself
in tbe Yellowstone Park last week. He
was in love wih a young lady for two
whole days and she was frigid. He
could not brook delay, and was resolved
to die. 'I hercfore—1 he pistol and a
coffin. The son of a general may be
as silly as the son of a rail splitter.
President Cleveland It taking a holiday in the Adirondack fastnesses, where
he was interviewed last week by a correspondent of the New York World.
How he looked in the little log cabin

by day and jacklinnling by night, and
how he smiled while lie engaged in the

a log, and rhe interviewer saluting, lorn

multitude. Il is so peasant to see one
of ourselves in a barragon dress, cooking a beef-steak and possessing more
power than a king.
The cattle kings ajid the cowboys
have refused to go out of thn Indian
Territory, and show signs of fight; but
if General Sheridan goes down with a
brigade the cowboys and the kings will
be as tame as cats. It would be a real
consolation to see them stand uj, before
fighting Phil for five minutes, exclaiming, "Touch us if you dare." If the
bullies hear that a soldier is coming
they:U march double quick.

war; yet, iu |he face of   all   tbis,   she
defies lire   world, sends her   arnri's on
ndvintures   to   Madagascar and   Tonquin, and she is rapidly completing rhe
greatest   navy   that   France ever   pos
sessed.     It is   hardly  neceisary   tn remind our  readers that   Fiance at the
present   moment is  ruled   by  men of
fourth-rate minds—men who know very
littlo about the theory or practice of
government, who are iu their places by
permission of  the mob,   and who will
retain their places just so long as they
please the mob.    Under these circumstances, anil not   being  overburdened
with either education or morality, it is
no wonder that laws  are passed, lacking in the smallest principles of justice
and marked by a tyranny not exceeded
in tlur eruelest ili'spritisui.    Her foreign
policy appears to be guided without the
remotest  idea  of  prudence  or  diplomatic etiquette.    At the present moment  she   is seizing on every  paltry
pretext to foment a quarrel with England.    Her naval officers search  Eng
lish ships and confiscate their cargoes
of rice, as contraband of war.   A blackguard paper called the flosphorc Egvp
lien,   having outtseged   overy sense  of
decency in its attacks  upon England
and the   Egyptian  government, while
being   published   in   Alexandria,   was
suppressed for a time, and was almost
worked up into casus belli.   A worthless
scamp named Olivier Pain,  who aided
the Mahdi during his lifetime to make
war on England, is made an excuse by
the ultraradical papers of Paris for a
national quarrel, and they even recommend that the  British Ambassador be
insulted in retaliation, and talk of 111 nr
deling the Prince of Wales on his next
visit  to   France,   as  a  set-off.    Th y
pretend thai Olivier Pain was captur d
for a bribe and ordered to be killed by
British   officers,    ivhicli,   by tho way,
they would have been quite justified in
doing, hail tliey been   so minded.    But
the whole story is mer.' invention, used
to inflame the masses in  France     The
Ambassadors of France at the Turkish
court, oppose nnd  endeavor to thwart
every   attempt of   England   to  bring
about an understanding with the Porte.
All this can havo only one object-- to
quarrel with England -and it  is clear
that it  forms  part of a carefully pre
pared plan between France and Russia.
This hitter power, has  been   prodding
tho  British   Lion iu   India, and so far
only  produced  a  growl     The  pursu
ance of   this  policy of  provocation is
now left to France, and she is expected
to get the animal  into a  rage  by onr-
means or  another.    It  is  confidcirly
believed   by  France and   Russia that
their combined fleets will  be  able  tqj
sweep the  British   fleets from tfie sea;
that the   Russian armies  will   lie abb'
to annihilate those  of Austria in   the
Balkans, while   France  engages   Ger
many in UttVte  und   Lorraine.    "The
best laid  schemes  of   men and  mice
gang   aft  agley."    That   France   and
Kin -ia will be able to sustain a fearful
war for a   low. time,   is quite  likely,
and that they may gain victories before
they are beaten, is also prnliablc;   but
that tliey will lie beaten and that tbey
will be <lmiicinl.iT.il is ns sure as fate.
Russia will lose all her outlying provinces, but these are only the countries
she has stolen within the last century,
so that of Russia proper, she may not
lose lunch, although enough to cripple
her for the next hundred  years.    But
France will have, as usual, to pay the
major part of the reckoning:   she will
be between the upper and  nether mill
stones of England and Germany, and
they wil)  finally crush lier out of  all
form.    If   she receives  any mercy,  it
will be from England, the power that
she is now goading into a quarrel, and
t   may   become,   a   question   between
England and Germany as to how much
of France is allowed   to compose   the
next   monarchy.    It   is  very  sad   to
think that  beautiful   France is to be
torn into shreds  and  millions  of her
brave sons slaughtered, because a set of
unprincipled rascals calling themselves
republicans, assume to Speak for her.
It may, however, tend to solidify what
is left of the nation,   and  after many
years she may once more distinguish
herself as  a  great  power in  Europe.
The old  saying that  extremes meet,
is vividly exemplified in the alliance of
France and   Russia.    Their respective
bases of action, their institutions and
their popular tastes, are diametrically
opposed; still they touch at one point
n their eager desire to destroy Eng
land and Germany, the one for conquest
nd   power,   the  o'ther   for revenge.
Neither of these motives carries with
it the influence of moral law, so that
all they have to depend upon will be
brute force, and that will deprive them
of the sympathy of surrounding nations. The present mockery of a republic in France bas b.„-n long considered by the monarchies of Kurope as a
menace and the hotbed of Socialism;

If anything could bo adduced to
show the folly of retaining the capital
of this great Province on Vancouver
lslrui.1, it certainly could not be clearer
evidence than the difficulty now experienced by the Bteamers in plying between that place and this city, the only
means of communication we have. The
fogs 011 tho gulf are so dense that it
In. nines a matter of surprise to all
acquainted wiih the danger, that the
steamers are able to find their way,
even with the delay now so common.
It is suid that a hundred years ago,
passengers undertaking a journey by
mail coach, in England, always made
thoir wills before starting. If such a
precaution was then necessary, surely
it is doubly so before crossing the gulf
in a fog. If we were iu such a position
that we could not avoid such risk, it
would then be bail enough; but when
we consider that the risk, inconvenience
and loss of time are the result of our
own choice of a seat of government on
an outlying Island, we are certainly
not deserving of pity; on the contrary,
we are only subjeota for laughter. The
absurdity of making Victoria the dis
tributing point for our mails will be
more apparent to strangers than our
selves, for, like eels to skinning, we aro
now used to it. But if we only |.,ok
at the matter for a moment in its true
light, we shall see how stupid we are.
Our letters are exposed to possible loss
in the steamers from San Francisco and
the Sound; they, also, run great risk in
traversing the gulf to eome here. We
say in.tiring of tin* detention of mail
matter at Victoria, for two or three
days frequently, in consequence of the
.-learners from tho United States just
arriving as the steamer to this city is
departing. Now, all this might be
easily avoided, if  we were connected
with the I'uited Slates system of railways by a short line from the Fraser
river to Uie forty ninth parol I I. But
ut, thi' people of the great mainland,
the -chief part of the Province, are
compelled to submit to endless delay
and annoyance because we permit the
capital lo remain on an island, and
allow tin. Islanders to do as they please
with ourselves and the country. Does
anyone in Ins senses believe that so
long as _bt* islanders ean manipulate
our representatives, they will ever allow
lhe Bill incorporating the "Eraser Val-
!ey railway to pas-? Does anyone be
iievc that any Islander can represent a
mainland constituency with any other
objtM than that of securing the subjection of  the mainland  to the Island i
We rm the mainland huve overy desire
to s"e the Island prosper and grow
rieh, bel we »l.jeot to be Wtd for that
purpose. They have their Graving
link, their railway, their splendid
roads, for which we have contributed
the largest share, while our poor set
tiers have to carry their supplies on
their backs to their holdings, for wunt
of roads. 11 we are grudgingly accorded a small sum for improvements,
it is only what has been taken from us
in taxes or a small portion of the proceeds from the sale of our lands or our
timber. To anyone outside the Province it must appear almost incredible
that we allow ourselves to be milked
oinl hoodwinked and fleeced at tlio
good will and pleasure of a small community on an Island, which was placed
by niiiiic v. liei" I| is to uct as a break
water for the mainland. Will anyone
inform us what we are lacking that we
oan l.e imil in such a way by the
Islanders? Perhaps somebody can, but
it be cannot, we will answer the question: it is thn wont of unity, which is
the all-redeeming quality amongst lhe
Islanders. We have been hitherto
wholly wanting in cohesion. Our
minds are too much occupied with paltry personal spite, miserable jealousy,
crafty political adventurers, who, to
use the phrase of one of them, have
been able to pull the wool over our
eyes. Can our people net understand
that the sacrifice of their feelings
which wili enable them to act together
for political freedom and legislative
justice, which will enrich them all, is
merely nominal and will only be for a
short time I By a united effort we can
get back the capital to the mainland
where it ought to be, and we can have
the Fraser Volley railway, by which
we can have cheap freights and regular
mails, with a saving of time equal to
two days at least. We are told that
our merchants are endeavoring to have
tlie O. R. &N. Co.'s steamer resume
her trips from Tacoma to this place.
If -they are wishful to succeed by enlisting the sympathy of the whole mainland, they will petition the Dominion
Government to have the mails for tho
mainland sent by this route and make
this city the distributing point. If
they would do this, they would not
only have the sympathy, but material
aid, from the upper country, and the
boat would earn a ren.unera.ive income
sufficient to secure the Idaho or any
other suitable boat so long as we re
quired the service.—Guardian.

It is stated inSwedinh circles that tho
Yi-it of their royal Highnesses to Sweden is connected with the marriage
between Princess Louise of Wales nnd
Oscar, Duke of S'.deruiaiiia, second son
of the King of Sweden and Norway, the
"Sailor Prince" of Sweden, who has
juBt returned from a cruise around the
world iu the corvette Vanadis. The
Prince is an officer in the navy, and
about 24 years of age. Since returning
his royal Highness has suffered greatlv
from a protracted cold and headaches;
but, having consult..d Dr. Meyer of Oo
penhagen this eminent physician hasde
clared there Is no cause for anxiety.
Having been recommended highland
air, the Prince has gone off to-
sp>iid a few weeks among the mountains of Jemtland, and there is every
hope of bis being able to be present at the reception of our royal
family in Sweden. The marriage has
been received with great enthusiasm in
the three Scandinavian countries,where
the English and Danish royal families
»r*-greatly respected.

that a company of soldiers were al target practice on tbe sonde, the officer in
