T is was Tuesday, and not uniil the

were heard cunii g up the drive, fin

M an-vrtiny nn the other side of the
country the Sea King had ar M'ed, and
among its liv.ug freight h id put ash re
a tall, slim lad, whose refilled, delicate
features, the very image of his patent
mother's, had instantly poi. twl him out
t Francis Bcresforu as tbe o urge he
h.d come to teek.
At the first sound of his voice,—
"You are young Hugh Beresford, are
yon notr he had said -thn boy's eolor
ilei-p'iii.l. '.he lung l.ri.wr- !asln-s fell
over his duth, sightless eyes. "Vou
spesyk like "
"Like- 1"
"Like my father?" said the poor lad,
with a sob, and clung with both hands
to his cousin's arm.
Francis quivered as the boy hung on
him. What would he have given to
have been able to welcome this lonely
boy with the warmth he longed for, to
tell him he bud something of his
father's h"art as well as his fathers
voicr, to bid him cheer up, for there
was a plenty of love and care waiting
for him at the end of the day's journey-
But for the life of him he oonlo not do
it. His words of greeting came coldly
and awkwardly from hia lips, and he
was glad to release his arm, and, leaving the lad in safe hands, to hurry
after the removal of his few belongings.
As began, so went on the day. At
the hotel breakfast he pressed food
upon young Hugh, and put a few disjointed questions about the voyage.
The time that had preceded it he dared
not touch upon; for he hod all a man's
horror of tears, and had found out
that safety from them only lay in silence as to the past.
"When we get home you will be all
right," was the nearest approach to a
comforting speech he found himself
able to make, and even that was suggested by the decided impression, as
the day wore ou, that he himself should
know no ease till he was safe into the
same heven.
"What home am I going to?" asked
the hoy, half timidly, and the deprecatory manner and slightly shrinking
iigure of the returning heir stung his
cousin with a touch of self-reproach.
Here was he, known as the readiest
friend and helper to every man, rich
or poor, about him, letting on orphan,
desolate altogether but for him, come
into a strange land and ask what was
to In- his home!
"Why,you are coming to 'Elizabeth's'
of course," he answered, and at the
kinder voice the boy drew nearer to
to him. "My wife will be looking for
us by evening time. No it is not evening yet; we've not reached London yet,
and then there will be stations to
change and forty miles further to
travel." "And then," thought Mr.
Beresford, and he frowned, with the
old angry, look of the last few days
back on his face, "and then I shall
take back the owner of the place he
will never understand or value and
have to play henchman or steward to
my young squire till I'm and old man.
Dghf
Jle vented his final' grumble out
loud, and young Hugh asked him if lie
were very tired. "1 am," he said; "this
thing shakes so. And th3 ship -was
dreadful. Oh, the noises and the nun
tall:ing!    I hated   it;   I   never   could
sleep for the noises, you know, and	
thinking. When I get home I shall
In so tired I shall sleep for days and
nights, 1 believe."
indeed, on t'-.eir arrival at Lo_d"ih,
the lad had just dropped olf into an
uneaiy slumber, ami in the hurry ami
oonfution of a sudden awakening, amid
the many strange sounds and jostlings
of a crowded platform, contrived to
lose his hold of his cousin's coat-sloove,
and be lost among the busy tinong that
pressed  about linn.
Then, discovering his absence in a
few moments, Mr. lieresford had an
anxious ten ininut.'s' searching for him,-
finding him at last, the very picture of
silent terror, clinging to a lump post,
evidently fast losing what nerve he
posse wed.
"(lood heavens' how you frightened
me," cried his cousin, almost angrily.
"Here, keep tight hold of me now.
Porter, a cab. Sit there till I get your
things together."
But that was ni> easy matter. While
seeking for the luggage the boy had
got lost, and while hunting for the boy
the luggage bad vuliished; more time
was wasted in giving orders, and then,
to crown all, when Liverpool KtriTt
Station was reached, their tram had
departed a quarter of an hour before.
Wisdom said, "Oo to an hotel and
go to sleep," but a strong desire possessed Francis Beresford to get home
that night somehow, antl when he
found that the mail train woultl lie
starting a couple of hours later, by that
he determined tbey would go.
By that, after the most wearisome
waiting ho had ever known, they went.
reaching Colford some half-hour after
midnight, and finding, as might have
been expected, no carriage, no vehicle
of any kind to take them on to their
destination.
"Why ha<Wt he telegraphed to his
servant who was waiting there for the
9.30 train?" Why. lieeause he never
gave it a thought, taking for granted
that the man would wait for him. New
there was nothing to be done but to
stand about till a fly could be got from
(the   nearest   inn,   or "But     that
♦ouldn't be possible, Hugh," cried Mr,
Beresford, as the idea struck him.
"¥e«a're too" tired, are you not-—or
could you wait home!"
"Oh. yes!" was thi eager answer.
"Anything to get us there quickly.- I
can rest—oh, how I can rest!—when we
get there.    Do let us  vealk!"
Without more ado, then, in this
fashion, and at this strange hour, the
young heir set off on hit first journey
over his own lands. A brilliant full
moon ;„ade the path round the out-
•/kirt! of the town, and   through the
field hi voiiil. us tasty travelling as tho
higaiua.i H.-e-if, mi Mr. lierciford repeated more than once that it was as
light as day, forgetting how little difference that made to his hearer. "I've
come over the fields,' he said, when
they had gone full half-an hour on their
way, "because it saves us a long round;
we have gone the bcrt part of our way
now. We are coming towards the
brickfields. This is Kingsbrooke,
Hugh"'    The boy stopped short
'This is kingsbrooke, is m be sairl.
"This land il mine, cousin Francis!"
bringing both hands together round his
companion's arm with a tight, nervous
grip. "You don't mind iny coming
home, do youl You are not angry with
me for having the place instead of you,
are you?"
Strange and unlucky question! The
pathos of his voice touched no kindly
responding chert in his hearer. All
through tha' strange, silent wakl a very
dernoiuof desire hail been grappling
with Francis IJeresford's better self, a
dozen voices teemed chanting in his
ears, "Instead of you, instead of you!"
And now the boy had, clinging to him,
read his thoughts and put file self-same
question that b*d driven him hAlf-w;ld
through that long day.
There on the hill-side waa the white
house, sil vered along its broad front by
the clear moonlight; away over the
bridge was his own far smaller home,
the modest dower house of a bygone
Beresford, which would have to be his
to the end of his days; and here, all
alone with him, trusting to his guidance
for his every footstep—good heavens,
what put that thought into his brain
just then? All alone with him—all
a/oen with him—was the one young life
that stood between him and his desires.
"Vou are not angry, are you?" re
prated the voice half sadly, and Mr.
Beresford almost gasped for li-eath for
words to deny the suggestion even, but
the right words wouldn't come. Instead.
"Let us make haste," he almost
whispered; "you must never speak like
that, my Iwy; be quick, we are coming
to the brook now! Hold me tight;
hold me very tight; take hold of the
rail with your other hand."
Tbey were crossing the stream now,
the broad band of living light tbat ran
at the base of the brickfields between
bare willow branches on to the mill-
dam half a-mile away; crossing steadily
and safely till midway on the planks.
Then, what was itl Did the boy slip
or loose his footing/ Francis Beresford
could swear he never touched or loosed
his hand; but iu one awful moment
young Hugh stumbled and with a cry,
"Oil, help me!" fell heavily into the
swift-tlovviiig waters beneath.

"A   ROD   TOR A   FOOLS BACK,"
The stillness of tleath followed that
one cry, and the stillness of death seemed to have seized on the one man who
beard it. For full fifteen minutes,
there stood the fi^juee on the bridge,
motionless as if a man of stone. Was
it the grip of some outward and visi-
demon held him there, that he never
moved his eyes from the spot below
whence the pale upturned face hail
floated1 swiftly away/ Had some Very
devil incarnate liound his hands, that
never a muscle had stirred when the
voice cried, "help me/" What awful
power, what strange paralysis, took
possession of brain and heart, and
clothed those minutes with a dreamlike
unreality that slowly faded wlien, as
from n iWOrjn, at laet he rousedl
Roused!-Woke? What was it! Were.
the bells ringing for the boy's return
(it was oiil'St. .Wargnret's chimes from
the distant town), mid what were the
voices all around him. It's yours,
Kingsbrooke ilyotfrst" A very chorus
seemed to fill the air about him, Shivering, cowering like e. -Vig let loose from
the hand of the matter who has beaten
him, Francis Beresford unclusped his
hands from the bridge rail, ami lifted
his crouching form to meet the horrible
wave     of    returnihg     consciousness.
"Kingsbrooke is yours!"
"Leave off", leave off!" he cried,
stretching out two shaking arms as if
to fence away a mortal foe, and an
echo from the thick piantatidhs on the
hill side mocked his own worth.
Kingsbrooke is—" No, no, it was
young Hughs, the boy's the boy's.
"Where is he?" and again the cruel
echo mocked him. "Where is he?" cried
the nir gobiin. "Where is Ke?" he Whispered with dry, cold lips; and out of
the wild turmoil of hiB breat came back
the answer:—"He is dead."
And quite far away gibing voicps
went on chanting, "Kingsbrooke is
yours. I'ours, Francis Beresford,
yours!"
"Never, never," he almost shouted;
"Gixl help me, it shall never be min«!"
and wresting himself from the delusions his envious soul had cost about
him, he tore like a madman up the
white path to the only cottage i» sight,
and liesought the inmates to come out

THE   WEEK'S   NEWS.
HOME.
In. all our MsAlltftal the Pacific
Province is rPCoiniiH-nileil to tlie notice
of those who are looking for happy
homes and great chances. But that
portion of it wJiicll,is >lashed by the
waters of the Pacific Ocean, appears to
be the garden in which multitudes are
hoping to Hud a home. The climate,
tlie scenery, the boundless forests, and
tbo great railroad, make a picture for
i the mind of a person who is foud of
change, and is an irresistible attraction.
A very rich ledge of gold and silver
quartz has boen discovered in Kicking
Horse Pass, and crowds have come in
from the other side to secure the treasure. At present the climate there is
mild, and the ledge is in a well-sheltered nook in the bosom of the mountains.
The Dominion mining regulations do
not suit the miners, but the laws of tin
Province are popular.
Tlie unfortunate Chin Ah You was
again in Court at Victoria, and the
infant Ah Lie—twenty years of age,
ond supposed by him to be his wife—
was deincnded from him by her friends.
The Chief Justice delivered judgment.
He did not think the lady was married
to Chin Ah You; the ceremony was
performed after dark, out of town, in a
private house, where Chin Ah You
acted as interpreter for tlie lady. "I
<lo not," said his lordship, "think she iB
his wife.    Let each party pay costs.
On the 7th inst., a convention at
Winnipeg declared that the people of
that Province wished to witndraw
from Confederation and make Manitoba
a Crown colony with a constitution and
government of its own. The intense
cold of that northern Province compels the people to seek for a change,
but Manitoba is married to the Dominion and cannot get a divorce on
any terms.
A leading article in the "Colonist" is
<levoted to "the Premier's visit." There
is nothing in it, but the writer assures
his readers tliat Smithe will not charge
$12,000 expenses. "He is," the writer
says, "to prevent confused jurisdiction,
to regulate Indian affairs, and settle
our eastern boundary. All bosh. He
is gone tb give himself an airing, and
the people will pay the cost.
J. R. Adams, who lived for many
years in the upper country and was
well known at Cassiar and Victoria,
narrowly escaped lynching at Tombstone, Arizona. On the 10th inst. he
shot a constable. The funeral was immense, the flags at half mast, and people in mourning. He may be hanged
Iiefore he is tried.
The Dominion Government and the
Provincial authorities are sure to dis
agree in making regulations with reference to the whisky trade. The vendors
of that liquid represent a great power
in every land where universal suffrage
iB tolerated, and in a conflict with the
powers at Ottawa the i'rovinces will
triumph.
Surveyor-General Gore invites archi
tects to submit, on or before the 10th
of May next, the plan of a jail, with
specifications and estimate of cost,
which is not to exceed $20,000. He
says: the site is isolated and slopes to
the south. "The architect of the de
sign" adopted will receive $500. Who
is the national architect? The man
that never saw a well-designed prison
is not fit to be a competitor. A min
iature copy of some well arranged
prison ought to be provided. The advertisement is evidence of ignorance,
instead of inviting the people to supply plans, our rulers should say this is
the plan of the prison required at New
Westminster, and we are ready to receive tenders for the execution of the
work. The result of building a jail
according to the design of some local
genius will lie—another Penitentiary;
a pile of useless brick. 820,000 is a
nice price to pay for a jail—an enormous sum to pay for a muddle.
The citizens of Victoria have discovered tliat their city is in the wrong
place—it ought to be at Port Moody.
The dry dock at Esquimalt is played
out. "The headquarters of the British
fleet on the Pacific^ Coast," is sure to
be "a eoft place." The docks and
ship-yards of the future make pictures
ih the minds of Victoria merchants
that destroy the beauties of Beacon
' Hill. Even the newspaper proprietors
in that charming village see by the
shadows Bure signs of coming events.
The "Colonist" is preparing to move
bag and baggage to Port Moody. This
- is a fact communicated to - us by a
person who ought to know. It is not
.'a very important announcement. An
increase of capital is desirable, an in-
rcrease of population is wealth, but an
iricfeflse of gabble is a real misfortune.
The citizens of Port Moody sliould
hold a public meeting and protest
against the publication of that horrible page in the "Colonist" headed,
■What some people say." The density
of the ignorance displayed in thut j.a^e
is as thick as tar An educated
strmiper in the habit of reading
"What some people say in Victoria,"
is sure to ask—do they ever say anything 1 it is all gabble—a miserable
sample of parrot wit.
The United   States.
Sullivan, Pete McCoy and several
other human bull-dogs are making a triumphal march through the country.
Multitudes flock io see them in the
ring. The age ol chivalry is past, brains
are despised, and any png-nosed buffer
is app auded as if he were a hero. Caesar or the first Napoleon would not be
noticed by a modern crowd, but an elephant that wears a hat is a character to
be admired. Civilization is making
great strides on ibis continent. The
Alia describes a rough and tumble between McC'ov and another savage named
Whistler, in a bar room. Sullivan was
present and tried to keep the peace
Whistler appealed to bim and said,
"John, let me at him, and I'll down
him; "Go on" said Sullivan, 'and
break his collar bone." Whistler
bounded on his foe ; and the penny a-
linei describes what follows- "lliere was
a clutch, a whiz, a whirl and a bang and
McCoy ay on ihe floor, a quivering
mass of palpitating humani.y ; the fall
agitated every botile in the bar »nd
loosened the nails in the floor.'' And
the scribbler adds, Whis ler acted wi h
great leniency and forbearance Whistler is now a hero and may have to be-
Presidenr of the Republic.
In Congress Pendleton proposed io
make a wagon road ftom Alaska to the
Canadian Pacific Railroad, and said the
country is magnificent, and would, il
the road were made, become a densely
populated place. Another representative told him lhat three hundred miles
of the road should be made in British
Columbia, and that it was impossible to
find a 640 acre; lo in all Alaska. Pen-
die on was astonished and abandoned
1 he project.
A New City.—At Priest's point, a

the rel gious order known as the Oblate

THE PREMIER'S VISIT TO
OTTAWA.
(From tbe M--ii).aiid Our .in.]
The Colonist, very likely supplied
with the material by honest Join, gives
a leader on Sunday last, trying to cover
the Premier's trip with saliva, so that
it may be swallowed by the public.
But although its well moistened surface
may make it slide with many who desire to swallow it anyway, the small
cunning which produced it, must be
very apparent to all intelligent observers. The fact is, that the Premier went
to Ottawa to lobby the Settlement bill,
and in doing bo, he and his abettors
made a very great mistake. The position of the Government and its antagonism to the people of the Province,
is well known &t Ottawa; so that the
Premier's appearance at the Federal
Capital will create and confirm opposition that without the inviting reminder
of his presence, might have been overcome by the combined soft sawder of
the Dominion ministers. The ministers
also, feeling that his presence there
was unnecessary, may lose enthusiasm
and shelve the bill, a very likely end to
an abortion like the Settlement bill.
The specious pretence about the
boundary and the Indians, we need
hardly say is all buncom. The Gov
eminent at Ottawa would look upon
any personal recommendations of our
Premier as apiece of impertinence and
would resent it as such; they will arrange the boundaries to suit themselves at their own convenience. As for
the Indian question, they would not
listen to a word from Mr. Smythe; they
pay a small regiment of officials here,
and they will listen to nothing which
does not emanate from them. Who is
Mr. Smithe tliat they should accept
guidance or counsel from him ? Mr.
Smithe answered tbe purpose of Sir
Alex. Campbell, as Premier of the Province, when he was obtaining favorable
terms for the Settlement bill; but Mr.
Smithe in Ottawa is quite a different
person, and we strongly suspegt, will be
most cruelly snubbed. For the Grit
leaders he will afford both amusement
and political material, which will be
another source of annoyance to the
Government—our friends, the men
whom the honest John Government
pretended to have conciliated by bribing with a large slice of the Province.
Honest John could not go to Ottawa
himself, and in his acrid inner-self will
be enjoying the roasting and taking
down administered to Mr. Smithe. But
honest John is not idle; he lias a good
deal of pulling down and building up
to do preparatory for the next election.
He has officials to fire out who can't
give him any votes, and people to put
in their places who can. He has a
great deal of spite to gratify, and anybody 4o whom he conceives himself in-
the undertaken, are said to like plague*,
U'cau*** people die and their friends
l-uy mSm for tlinn. One of these
persons carry.n;; on a good business at
Victoria, MEnmMid himself totheetl'n-t
that if the Settlement Lill went
through, there would lw two good years
for Victoria, during which time he
hoped to clear enough to take him to
his own country, and this country
might go to hades for anything he
cared. There are quite a nun.li r in
Victoria who think and speak in the
same fashion, so that those who look
upon British Columbia as their home
and are trying to make a provision fo:*
their families, may form a pretty good
idea of what kind of measure the Settlement bill is, and what the country
will be like when it comes into force.
The greatest sufferers will be the inhabitants of Vancouver Island, whose
dream of making that rich country the
manufacturing center of the Pacific,
will be rudely dispelled. It will simply
be the storehouse of a huge monopoly,
to whieh they will all be contributors.
The members of the honest John gov.
ernment may have all feathered their
nests pretty well, but in such fashion
that no good can result. A curse
seems to follow material wealth obtained from the sacrifice of one's neighbors.
PORT MOODY.
Alas! our

[Kr»m tbe Mainland OuRnlUn.J
It has often been a source of wonder
10 us, (hat appa en ly sensible, intelligent people, will allow themselves to be
imposed upon by plausible, designing
knkveti--whose so.e capital-—an abnormal
i?ift of the gab, which they turn to account on every occasion, and whose
complete freedom from every sense of
honor or principle enables them to
make statements that no one with a
grain of honesty wou d dare to make—
and follow them blitlly, sacrificing
wealth and social satus without an ob
ject. Years ago we foretold the future
of Port Moody. It was no remarkable
effort o( intellect or the gift of pies:icnce
whi-.li enabled us io see what others
c.-uld not, even those deeply intcresed;
it was simply tl.at we allowed no intei-
ested motives to prevent us from seeing
.•he beauties of Nature's handiwork in
the formation oi a harbor, and the sure
result of its being made the tei minus io
crreai raiway. Strongly impressed
with these facts we wrote article after
article iu the sr n^est terms, addressed
to our citizens, praying them to make
Ion Moody theoutport of this city, find,
by the immediate Construe ion of a good
r .ad. secure the trade of the future
great port of the Province,
appeals were thrown away:
some one .will less honesty
blarney who sought to turn his own influence to account for personal profit.
and who, .nidiu^ at last that his effor s
;n all in vain, shook the dust of the
city from his feel and enro led himse (
in lie ranks of its greatest enemies. The
fact of Port Moody being the terminus
for all future time was very easy to discover; the harbor was perfect; it was
sheltered from every wind, and was
si tiply a large dock where vessels cou'd
enter at aU stapes of the tide and anchor
or lie  up  anywhere,   in  perfect safety.
til there wa> something beyond this,
that p<*op e could not or would not nei.
Hy the Act of the Dominion Parliamen
creating the Canadian Pacific railway,
amongst other privileges granted to the
company wm the possession ol a I the
foreshore of Port Moody—about seven
or eight h ndred acres—which must in
course of time form the very heart and
mosl important portion oi the future
city, worth at 'east as much as the entire
cost of conducting lie line from Savona

a quarter of a century* Is it wonderful
with ihe knowledge osscsse . by the
Syndicate, that they should secure all the
advantages tor the port which would be
virtually their own and that they should
have invited the attention of the 1'ntish
vdmiralty to the beautifu harbor? We
■ be sure that the presence of the
navy wi not be the only boon for Port
M.ivb to be secured; we have from
time to time indicated others which will
make the terminus city the greatest on
the Pacific coast. The expr. felon* of
Sir Charles Tupper in th*. House of
Commons, on 20th of last mouth, are
well wor li repea ing; they convey so
conclusively the feelings and intentions
of the Canadian Pafcific railway company as 10 leave not the shadow of a
doubt: —
"As to whether Port Moody or English

can say is that the Government, selected Port

that they have done all that is necessary, in

which was de*-lured by the highest naval Authorities, to be unequalled on the Pacific
coast."

Port Moody, more completely. Mam

involve a reciprocal concession; and would
the access of a few Engliish 'radcrs to Sa-
marcaud offset the political dangers resulting from the presence of swarms of Itusstiu

the proposed canal from the Sea of Aral to

Russia finds almost impassable, and which

before the Council of India recomtnenos nn
investment of the kind. We may add that
the disfavor with which the supeisedtd Governor-General of Turkistan is treated, instead of being meant to allay Kngli h susceptibilities, may be more reat-onanly attri
huted to the heavy defalcation discovered in
his accounts.

THE BALTIC AND NORTH
CANAL.
SEA
(From the London Standard.)
Berlin, Feb. 1.—According tothe Mil'da-
risehf NachricfUen, the works for the construction of a canal which will unite the
Baltic with the North Sea are on the point
of being taken in hand. Tbe canal willcom-
menu* nt a point between Bruusbuttt-1 ami
St. Margarethen, on the Elbe, will ] ass
Rendsburg, and end at the Bay of Kiel, near
Haltenau, south of the great fortification's of
Fnedrichfort. The leng. li will be ninety-
.seven kilometres ; the canal will have a
depth of nine metres at low water, and be
100 metres wide. The largest ships will be
able to pass at all hours'of the tide.
The canal being entirely under the control
of Germany, her inen-of-war will be able to
avoid the perilous passage of the Belt, which
Denmark is at present able to impede by her
const batteries and by torpedoes. When
the Baltic is frozen over the ships can he
utilized in the North Sea. Merchant.vessels
will gladly avail,themselves of the canal, in
order to avoid the long tour round the Kattegat, and the dues paid by them sre expected to cover the cost of the construction:

THE RAILWAY   LOAN  RESOLUTION.
Our readers w ill observe that our es
teemed and popular representative at Ottawa has taken a very sensible and commendable view of this necessary succor to what is
iterally the great life-artery of Canada.
The completion of the Canadian Pacific Railway will not only save the company from financial ruin, but the entire Dominion from
ruinous depression and bankruptcy. It will
leuiove the obstructions to our industries in
making way by clearing the warehouses for
new and extended manufactures.
Mil,  HoMKK,
"After the many able speeches we have
heard, there is little more to be said. With
regard to the financial part of the question,
the Government are receiving from the Canadian Pacific Railway a guarantee of 95
for every dollar they ore lending the Company to enable them to complete this gigantic enterprise in two years instead of extending its construction over a period of seven years. There is one point to w Inch I
wish particularly to refer, and which 1 do
not think any previous spenker brought nut
during this debate, that is, the immense
benefits which must naturally accrue tothe
young and growing manufactures of this
Dominion by their early introduction to the
markets of Japan, China, India, Australia
uud the numerous hdands of the Pacific
Ocean as well as the entire western coast of
America, extending from Behring Straits to
Cape Horn, containing in all a population of
upwards of 700,000,000 of souls. One
would suppose this would be a special reason, independent of the* many others given
during this debate, why we should construct
this Canadiaa Pacific Railway at as early a
date as possible.

Mr. John Cox, late of the Colonial, New
Westminster, ami this is a sufficient guarantee of its excellence.
A Bear Story.—Some of the boys thought
of a plan to amuse tliemselves tire other
night, and introduced a live bear (tame) into the sleeping department of tbe Caledonia
House, "There was a Bound of revelry by
night," when the presence of his bcatship
was discovered, and more than one of the
boarders displayed remarkable agility and
presence of mind in getting out of his way.
But the laugh was the other way when mine
host Kelly attacked bruin with one of the
largest boots in British Columbia—of course
it was not his own, but belonged to a man
who has since left town. Every thud wu
like the souudof a pile-driver, and the bear
just beat the beat time of "Muud S." by I
half-second in getting down stairs, sccom
panying himself the while in a voice which
scared the wolves away over at the North
Arm.
A Sawmill tor Port Moody.—A gang
of men are busily employed on Kyle St. be
tween Henry and George Sts., in clearing
away for the location of s sawmill to be
erected there by Armstrong k Co. The
machinery, which is fiom the well-known
manufactory of Russell k Co., Mssnilrm
Ohio, iB expected to arrive here per steamer
GipBy, fromTacoma, on the 16th inst , and
it is proposed to have the mill iu operation
by the 25th instant. The establishment
will be fitted with a boiler of 60 horse-power
and an engine of 40 horse power, together
with all the necessary machinery for turn
ing out every variety of rough and dressed
lumber, flooring, siding, square timber, etc.:
and a stock of sashes and doors will also be
kept on band. The mill will have a capacity of 20,000 feet per day, and will give
employment to from thirty to fifty men. The
establishment of such an industry here is a
great acquisition to tho place, as then all
the materials necessary for building purpo-
scb can be had right here at home, and, consequently, much cheaper than if imported.
The firm have acquired extensive timber
rights in the immediate vicinity, and will
proceed at once in the construction of a skid
road direct to the mill.
Land Jumping.—During the pastfow days
a good deal hss been heard of "land jump
ing," and rumors were rife that a great deal
..f this kind of thing was being practiced in
Port Moody and vicinity. So far, we have
only been able to learn particulars of three
cases, the information received being about
as follows :—Mr. T. J. Pogue has taken pos-
sessiou of a fraction of a lot on the Burr property, containing 39 acres. It seems there
are 199 acres in Mr. Burr's piece, and he
proved up on 160 acres, and applied for a
pre-emption right on the remaining fraction;
but, sb the land was situate in tbe railway
belt, the matter hntl paused from the hands
of tho local Government into those of the
Dominion Government, and he did not succeed. He built a lions.-, however, on the
property In question ; but us it contained
no windows aud was never occupied, Mr,
I'ogue claim, that it is merely an uninhabitable box, and so has taken possession of
the land. He has also moved his family
upon the place and is preparing to put in
crops. It is alsosnid that Mr Pogneintends
to protest tho validity of Mr. Burr's original grant from the Crown, on the ground
that it was illegally come by. Two men,
named Taylor and Graham, have "jumped"
that portion of the Mclnnes property facing
the bay, about two acres in all, claiming
that it is not included in Mclnnes' deed.
They express a determination to "hold the
f.rt" against nil coiners. Thero is a fraction
of nine acres on the Cooper property which
has been "jumped" by a Mr. Fraser, on the
ground that the deed does not include this
pi itioii. There seems to bo a general impression that the above men will succeed in
th.-ir "jumping" operations, but as yet>nothing definite is known.

But that I may not atain witfc grief
Tbe death *aoiig of my father a ton."
The unfortunate man salted the C>t>vernor
uf the jail to give aome triflea to persona
named, and retired to hii cell. There the
liuiitjinan, a horrid lo- kiiitf fellow in a aack,
made his appearance, and tunned up tire
ladder like a person aixustomul to the tn. k»
of the trade. He threw the rOffl over the

oiiic-d to the rapid proceedings ul the lyui lien, but after a pause he tied the knot and
came down.
In a litile while the convict, attended by
the Kev. .Father if orris, appeared, and ascended the ncaffold with a firm step, ami did
not exhibit the slighteut sign of fear. The
Kev. F-ttbtr prayed with him for a few ruin-

and was dead in a iuuin4nt; he never

About forty people in the jnil witness-'d

suffer the pangs of hunger. The creeks and
rivulets for miles round thi" place have been

February a Chinook wind came up the river
and liberate'! a few ttrttUUI at their sources.
and the water is now flowing over the ice in
the old channels, and covering the low

There ia no use in denying the plain truth—
they are a patient, industrious people, and

employed as miners, and the most unfortunate are those who are compelled by poverty
to work on the railrond. In many places

know, to, that the inherent difficulties of
their situation—which proved almost iiihiir-
motintable at a juncture when the rebellious
natives of India had no 1 reign aid to hope
fur—have been enormously enhanced by the
sudden interjection of a new factor iu the
problem, by the virtual incorporation of
western Turki tan with the Czar's dominions
and the swift advjuice of liusnia toward the
mountain wall that shelters the plains of
tiittdonTan.
'Ihe groat majority of experienced Anglo-
Indian administrators eariic»tly supported
the Afghan policy of Lord Beacom«tield,
which in its ultimate form contemplated the
establishment of protected princes and Rnt*
isli garritf'us at Cahul ami Herat, while ade-
quare lac/lit es of communication with the
Punjab and with Seinde were to be assured
by means of a railway to Camlahar. Oue
plea for thi" programme in f.iuiiliar enoUL'tl,
and is already drawing confirmation from
events, namely, that if Kngland did not
seize Herat, Russia would. Ihe other less
obvious but really weightier argument wai
framed to meet the objection that Herat was
of no gre.it value to Kngland. whi-h could
fight better in Punjab, close to her base of
fUpplaVs, than in Afghanistan. J^-rd Hea-
eotiBtield found it easy to c- DVjuea those
who knew soim-thing about the ge griphy
ol central Asia that if Kngland would but
occupy Cabul awl Herat, che would never,
in all likelihood, have to fight Huh m at all.
For nature In rself bed interposed obstacles
well nigh insuperable, in the shape < f parched ami trackless deserts, between the tn.ns-
CaBpian province of Rus-da and the annexed
or protected khanates of Khiva and B- kliara
on the on hand, and the outlying i-osses-
sions i.f Aghinistau and tie territories
of tlie till h.t'dy Indej end nt Turcomans on
the other. Jt 13 not the less true, because
t'ie arduous feat was accomplished by Oen.
Sliobeleff in his mutch against Geok-Tep.-,
that it would bu the acme of imprudence [nf
h modern army to iry to traverse the bb-ak
and waterless plateaus stretching s-uth of
Turkisian without the certuinty of obtaining harborage and Mipplies within the oaseB
that fringe the southern b'-rder of the waste
and among the northern slopes arid foothills
of the Afghan  m >nntains.
To deprive Russia of all encouragement
to cross the desert by cutting off the hope of
welcome and recruitment at the journey's
cod, was for man\ years a chief aim of
Anglo-Indian diplomatiatw, und it was f -r no
other ptirp. se that they solicited and finally
obtained iroin the Czar a promise to respect
the neutrality of Balkli and Merv, It was
clear, however, to Lord Beacons field that)
thi.. pledge, like tbx. nbi..-xious treaty of
Paris, would be lirok'.-n whenever Russia
could do s ■ with impunity; that weak frontier district*, like Balkh ami Merv, must
eventually gravitats to Calcutta or toward
T;ishk-ml, and thnt they c aid not be trust*
ed to oppose a Riim-iim assault nolens they
c inhl count upon prompt succ r from the
Brit sh power in India. A<c-rdihdy, he
warned his colleagues and birrival rliat the
changed situation in central Asiu required a
chance of polity, that only by planting her
own foot at Cabal and Herat coald  Kngland
piire a ica ■ nable guarantee that Russia
would shrink fiom facing the dangers of the
waste] while hy relinquishing her hold on
Afghanistan and retiring to the Punjab England would smo th away the natural ob-
triictiona to her rival's progress; and enable
Russia, by seizing Balkh and Merv, tocreato
a basis of re-enforcement and supply on the
southern rim of the great desert.
We know now what was to follow the contemptuous lepudia ion by Mr. Gladstone
of his predecessor's Afghan pr-•gramme.
The Muscovite is at Merv, and measures
arc already taken to form a strong milittry
po-at and "rganizc a large depot of army
stores in that oasis, from wl ich a short ami
easy march would bring a Russian force to
Herat. Ami now, when the mischief has
been done, when the in M. precious strategic
advantages have been thrown away, the
British Ministers are fain to carry out the
very plan which, when it was tim-dy and decisive, they dismissed with deri ion. Not
content with a di lomatie protest against
the shrewd move nf RuBsia, the India Council has decided to assert a i rdeetorate over
Beloochi-tau, 11 re<-ccuny Candthar, and to
despatch forthwith a military commission to
Herat.
In other words, win n the horse haa been

Lily. It is a secret league into which the
European or American has never entered.
It defies all laws except its own, and it dia-
poses of life and property with the aame despotic severity that the European himself
may exercise. There is one limit and one
only, at which the White Lily ia restrained.
It has never been known to take the life of

Bonneville once kicked a Chinese lal-orer, a

laborera said nothing, but at noon they all
marched out, after announcing that they
w<-uld not return. Before leaving the mill
they destroyed all the saws aud machinery
ami notified Bonneville that he must leave
within twelve houra er die. He left at once
and his miil was destroyed. Another instance of the aame character: A Cerman

she said, "You will die in Home in the Qui*

and himself related the anecdote in 1852 to
the Puke Ponza di S. Martino. lu the year
18711, when lie sent the Duke to Rome with
his letters to Pius IX., he said significantly :
"You ivint:,..hi.r that you go to Koine to prepare (or me the chamber iu which I must

A very painful impression must have been
firnduced in Englaud by the formal reliabi-
itation of the slave trade nf Kordofan by
Gen. t.ordon. The explanation that the
concession made to the slave dealers was of
no rial effect, because all the seaports were
guarded by British ships and no trade could
be carried tin, was disingenuous. The chief
trade and the most barbarous is that of the
interior, which never reaches the aeacoast.
Mr. Gladstone's father was reputed in his
time to he interested in the slave trade. Is
it a hereditary predisposition to the unholy
traffic that has led the Prime Mi/iistt-r of
England to authorize Gen. Gordou to promote it iu the Soudan ?
M. Brialou. the workingman Deputv,
who epoke in the French (ham her in
euent debtite on the industrial crisis,
and hud to he called to order by the
President for using the expression "Sa-
pristi, Mesuieurn," as a mode of introducing a remark, raked up the old
churge against the Orleans Princes of
demanding forty millions from the
country after the war in the hour of its
sorest need. The simple facts of the
case are these : Nap- leon III. confiscated the property of the Orleans Princes
iu 1852, of his own authority and agaiiist
tbe wish of his most trusted advisers,
men like XI. de Maupns and the
Count de Morny, the latter of whom
resigned in consequence. One-half of
the property was sold ; the other half
was not alienated, and it wus only this
half which reverted to the family in
1871. If they got forty millions then,
they lost ou the whole transaction
something like the amine amount; and
this they have never claimed or thought
of claiming. Moreover, the princes
themselves asked for nothing—the restitution of the property was an offer
spontaneously made th-itn by the Assembly, the member* of which felt ajuot
unnatural objection to crediting the
budget with the proceeds of an act of
spoliation. It was tho Kepnhiicans
themselves wbo protested most loudly in 1852 ugiiinat Louis Napoleon's arbitrary proceeding, of which they used
to speak punnlngly aa "le premier vol
de 1'aiglc."
On account of several recent esses of
death in England among children who
had been fed on wheaten biscuit, a physician states in the British Medical Journal that infants under six or eight
mouths should be fed with nothing
whatever but milk.
The Lancet does not approve of children's parties, and thinks that not only
in winter, bat at all seasons, the aniuse-
m.'tits of young children should be simple, unexciting, and as freo as possible
from the characteristics of the pleasures
of later years.

Luminous harness is the latest device
used in England to make the dark horse

Artificial cork is among tbe recent

production consists in mixing powdered
cork with starch and water, and kneading the mass while boillnf hot until it

very high temperature .The material
is described aa quite tight, uud possesses n .in-conducting properties.
Fatal cases of trichinosis have just
occurred iu Michigan and Indiana. In
both instances German faini ies were
the sufferers, and the victims trail been
eatim uncooked swine's flesh. Tbe
pernicious habit of eating smoked or
suited pork, without cooking it, retains
its hold upon the Germans, notwithstanding the warnings of physicians and
the frequent reports of disease and
death resulting from the practice. It is
this habit to which the great prevalence
of trichinosis in Germany is to be attributed. - -
The Archivees d'Ophthedmologie states
that observation leaves no room for
doubt tbat the shedd ing of tears qf blond
really occurs, though such cases are
rare. Referring to a recent case in
point, the writer says that the phenomenon is not caused by any special local
disease, though it generally coincides
with other hemorrhages in the skin or
mucous membranes. The blood lost
varies from a few drops to a winegluss-
fnl; the flow lasts but a few minutes,
and is intermittent.
A remarkable decrease In blindness
has been observed in England for every
decade since 1851, and the percentage
nf decrease in the last ten years is larger than has been shown in any preceding enumeration. The fact is attributed
to the recent advance in eye surgery,
improved sanitation, and the diminished
prevalence among children of purulent
diseases such ss smull-pox. Ihe present ntimberof blind persons in Engljnd
is given at 25.832, equal to one blind
person in every 1,138.
In a recent lecture at Birmingham
Prof. Max Muller of. Oxford, referring
to the Veda, the sacred book of the

Bible of India, said : "It is older than
any other book in the Aryan tongue,
and surely the knowledge of what the
world was like, 1,500 vears before the
beginning of our era. and of what our
own ancestors thought anil believed
nearly 4,000 years ago, is worth havine
and looking at. It had been, and still
was, the foundation of the religion nf
163 millions of human beings—who
were mostly the subjects of the Empress
of India, the Queen of England "
The London Bankruptcy Court is occupied with the affairs of Lord Iln minitower, who has been many years dead.

or until saturated. The cloth is then
removed, and, without pressure or
twisting, ishung up, uud exposed tothe
air for two or three duys. ihe material,
—silk, wool, or cotton—thus becomes
waterproof without preventing the escape of insensible perspiration.
The Ht.mburg relatives of an adventurous German emigrant are reported to
have fallen heir to a fortune of great
magnitude. The story is going the
rounds of the German press. Seventy
years ago a dissolute young poacher
left his native village of Kirehsteini-
beck, where he was in bad odor and
had frequent difficulties with the police and gamekeepers, and embarked
for Cape Colony, where he became, in
course of time, a prosperous planter and
stock raiser, and the owner of one of
the most valuable estates in tne settlement. Late in life he sold this property for a large sum, and took up his residence in London. Fortunate speculations there increased his wealth still
more, and when be died intestate some
years ago, his property was worth over
$20,000,000. Efforts to discover his
heirs proved unavailing until recently,
and the i ■ ate hue ever since been wafting for them in Chancery. The people
who now inherit this wealth supposed
their adventurous relative dead long
ago.
The Government officials in one of the
Swiss cantons have instituted proceedings against the parish priest in the
village of Hemberg, for undertaking to
exorcise the devil out of the body of «
peasant girl. The girl having fallen
sick, and being brought lo him for advice, be informed her relatives that her
illness -vas not of a physical, but purely
of a spiritual nature, and that what she
needed was to be rid of a demon by
whom she wae possessed, She was, by
bis directions, carried to the village
chnrch, where he sprinkled her with
holy w iter, and went through elaborate
formulas of exorcism; but. before be
bad finished tbe girl expired. Such
displays of superstition, on the part
both of country people and of clergy,
are not matters of iare occurrence, even
at this late day, either in Pwitzcrlnml or
in many parts of Europe.
