This week the C.P.K. put an extra
gang of Japanese graders to work fixing up the road bed of the Sloean
River branch, in the viciuity of Dearin'*. niding. The ranchers in the valley did not take to the idea, and on
Tuesday night an indignation meeting
was held at the residence of Frank
Trezzo, for the purpose of discussing
the prospect of expelling the .laps.
H. Grose was elected chairman and .1
J. Mabbott secretary.
Several poiutcd speeches were made
ami thi.n it was decided to form an
association, to lx* known as the Slocan
Valley Anti-Mongolian Association,
whose object will be to oppose the introduction of Asiatics. A petition was
drawn up anil signed by all the ranchers, reading as follows: "That the C.
P.H. be requested to remove Immediately the Japanese now employed in
this valley, aad that they shall not in
the future employ them, as they are
detrimental to our best interests and
are in every v.av undesirable, in that
(I I they decrease the value of thu land
merely by the fact of their being in
the valley; (2) they cheapen labor; (.'.,
that they do not trade with us;(li
that we cannot and do not wish to as-

Wednesday evening a well-attended
public meeting was held in tho Union
hall, to protest against the employment of a gang of Japanese graders
on the local branch by the C.P.R.
The chair was takeu by Acting Mayor
Smith nnd Geo. Ager acted as secretary. It was explained the nieeting
wss for the purpose of aiding the farmers of the valley in their efforts to
get lid of the Asiatics.aud to that end
the minutes of a meeting held by the
settlers in the valley were read. Short
speeches on the subject were mado by
the mayor, J. Baker, D. McVannel,
L. Knowles, W. Harrison and others.
The burthen of tho remarks was that
the presence of the Japanese was undesirable, that their employment was
a menace to the liest interests of the
country, and that all classes of the
community should unite in keeping
the Japanese out of the Sloean. A
committee was appointed to draft a
set of resolutions on the subject, to be
sent to the railway authorities at Nelson. Accompanying theni was a list
of signatures embracing almost the
entire populace of the town. Tho resolutions read:
"We, tho citizens of the city of Slocan. in pifblio meeting assembled, do

him to the drawing-room, und called

Caspar Hugo was gifted with
strong powers of penetration, nntl ho
was not slow to perceive that his
presence wus distasteful to the
maiden; but he made no sign, nor
siitl tht> discovery serve to lessen his
admiration of her surpassing beauty.
in fact, hor distaste rather served to
intensify hia purpose of possessing
her. At. tirst, there hud been a
slight, shadow of justice resting upon, ami giving color to, his plan stf
union with Christine, lie would thus
shore with her the property of which
he had deprived her by tshe destruction of the will.
On the present occasion, Caspar
greeted the lady very deferentially,
nnd having inquired after her health.
he informed her that he woultl make
his business known In as brief a
manner as possible. lie staled that
he had a thorough knowledge of Mr,
Milliard's business mutters, and thai
as ho proposed to enter into the
practice of law on his own account,
lie should bo qualified, as
well as extremely happy, to render
her any assistance that she might
require at his hands. In shot!, if
she proposed to take any steps toward resisting the administration stf
the estate in favor of thc claimant
from New Orleans, she might depend
upon him to assist her to the best
of his  ability.
Christine was not what we usually
denominate worldly wise. She was
impulsively truthful, anil had never
leurnul to conceal lhat whish" bo-
longed to ihe right. Her answer was
prompt utul to the point:

Christine made a movement of impatience, but tho visitor continued,
With nn appearance of deepest

"Pardon mc, lady, I would not
have ventured upon this business had
J iiBtt believed that it wus in the
heart of your foster-mother to make
you her heir. Uo you nol owe it to
her tss take some steps iu tiie matter?"
Notwithstanding th,* man's extreme friendliness of speech, there
was a gleaming of his evil eyes which
caused Ihe maiden to shrink ami
shudder more nnd moro.

IttK us she spoke, "for your kind of-

"Peihaps \ou have legal counsel

"I have friends, sir, who are better

"Ami yoil lui\e placed ll.e wliaile

'They will act us they think pro-

As Christine thus spoke, sh.* plainly Indicated by her manner that the
Interview hud lasted long onough ,
untl her visitor, with renewed protestations of friendship ami proffers
i_,f assistance, bowed himself out.
"1 have gained a point there!"

it cannot bo nipped in the bud!"

AH the evening Christine had been
looking for Paul. During tlie day
sho had learned from l.ora that her
lover bail had trouble with his father, antl bail left the paternal roof,
l.ora had received her information
from John Downey, who. hud obtained it from one of the Elinside
servants. Our heroine had been
schooling herself to meet the emergency, but she hud desired to see
i'aul before open rupture look place.
.She had convinced herseH it was
her duty to release him from the engagement ts> her. She deemed that
slu* shssuld make the release peremptory—that she shsinhl demand it.
She woultl not collie iu between par-
t*nt antl child. Her owu life-long orphanage hud lesl her to reverence the
sacred lies saf paternity. She did not
feel thut Mr. Waybrook had done
lightly or justly; but he was possessed of authority! uml ho had chosen
to exercise it.
Christina hoped Paul would ccme.
She would try and make his burden
lighter by restoring him to his homo.
Shu knew full well thut her own must break under the ordeal :
hi t ii was her part to suffer. The
calamity which luul occasioned the
trouble shouhl bs* hers alone, It belonged to her, and she would endure
Could tin ro have been lurking in

Christine's meditations were broken
in upon by a sharp click iu the corner, as a tiny door above the face of
the ssid clock flew open. She looked
m|b, anil saw the little Wooden cuckoo swing out. untl site counted the
flute-like chimes which told that it
was teu o'clock, Surely I'aul would
nol  come afltr that hour.
She arose, untl went to thc window
uml looketl out There wus no moon,
ami most of tho sturs were hidden beneath a vail of clouds. Sho was iu
the act of turning from the window,
when she wus startled by a rap upon
the outer door. Hutl the summons
been by tho usual medium of the bell,
she would have wuited for a servant
to answer it, but this rap wns significant. Sho thought of i'uul, and
without further thought, site went to
the door and opened it. Ily the
glimmer of the hall lamp, she saw a
boy standing upon the piazza. Sho
could not distinguish his features,
because, either by design or accident,
hu shrank away from the direct light.
"I want to seo Miss St. Clair, he
"I  am  Miss St.  Clair."
"Then I've got a letter for you,
und I'll wait for an answer."
'i'he boy wns very modest In his
speech, antl exceedingly deferential.
•"Who is it from?" usketl Christine,
us sho reached out her hand to take
'Trom a young gentleman, ma'um,
who said I was to wait for un uns-
wer. He is out by the hedge beyond

Christine asked tho lad if ho woultl

note; bul he preferred not. He Woultl

''Hoar Christine; Porhaps you

that    Paul    had     written   und    wus]
waiting for her, sho accepted  ut   the
outset.    Ansl ysU  tho substance of this
noto troubled her.    it did not sound :

would not seek thus by subterfuge to

Ihut it was her duty to chitio him fur
this. I
Sho thought of rani as an outcast
for her suko, anil sho could not. re-
fiiMi to go to him. She got her hut
and mantle, und went softly out upon the piazza. She found the boy in
wailing, uud told him that she
woultl follow him; but before sho
stepped from the piazza she asked
him if he knew who had entrusted
him with the letter.
"Yes, ina'utn," he said. "It wus
Mr. Paul Waybrook." i
"And what is your name?"
"Snniniy    Chadwick.      My mother
was  Mr.  Paul's  nurse  wheu  he    hud
tho fever."
Christine had never heard Paul
speak of Mrs. Chadwick, nor ditl she
remember anything of his fever; but
she did not doubt tho boy; and sho
told him to lead on. |
It was dark when they got nway
from tho house; Christine kept closo
upon tho heels of her guide. They
gained the hedge of nrbor-vitue, und
passed through the opening to the
farther side, which wus next to tho
highway. Hero tho boy Stopped uud
looketl around.
"I left him here," he said. "All !
there ho comes!" und ho pointed toward the road.
And toward the rond Christine
turned and looketl, while from out
tho shadow of the hedge, directly behind her, Ieuped two men, ono of
whom threw a thick robe over her
head, while the other took her in
his arms nnd bore her away. Tho
man who bail thrown the robe next
turned to the bssy antl gave him a
second letter.
"Take this, Dick, ami leave it. on
the table, if you can. If you can't
reach the table, do the next best
thing. You know what is wanted."
The boy took the letter ant! ilo-
parted, while tho man rejoined his
companion just in time to nssist in
lifting tho girl Into a buck which
hud hi en drawn up upon the roadside. The stonier of tho two men
entered with her. uml the other Immediately followed. .She struggled
with all her might—and her strength
wns considerable—hut it was s>f no
avail against the power of the two
strong men who held her, tine of
whom sail upon the saat by her side,
holding her head and shoulders, whilo
the other sat before her rendering it
impossible for her to move even a
foot. The tloor wus shut, tight, nntl
tho driver mounted to his box and
drove away.
At length lhe man who snt by her
siilo said:
"I'm going tit remove my hand
from your mouth and lot you
breathe: but if you make the leust

his rifle and started for the place indicated by the girls, and on arriv ng
near the trees, auro enough, there
was a great bear. She was busily

and devouring ths cherries. As
young Cook approached towards her

may soiiiul rather Queer, but it is n fact
nevertheless, that ninety-five out of ev.

Iu the use of bands nnd feet.

restored to health after twenty-nino
years' suffering from Kidney Disease
has yjvi'ii a Statement for publication,    it nuds :
"I had been a sufferer from Kidney
Complaint for twenty-nine years. I
had the most distressing Backache,
Irritation of the Spine, and Headaches, coupled nt tunes with an excruciating circular pain about the
lower purt of the hotly. What I suffered no pen can describe. Insomnia
too added its terrors antl 1 was

"Three different doctors attended
mo. One said I had Oravel, another
cajled it Bright's Disease, while the
third sai.i_ I wus in a dangerous condition. None of them gave me any
permanent help ond i.-.y friends
thought I could not live much longer.
'At this stage I gave up other
treatment and started using Dodd's
Kidney l'ills. After taking two boxes
1 found they wero helping me and I
continued till I had taken sixteen

Contrary to Grit expectations, the
official count in the Fernie riding on
Saturday confirmed the election of
Mr. Ross, Conservative, aud increased
his majority from five to seven. The
list of Conservatives elected therefore
stands at 22, and tlio McBride goTeru-
meat will continue to do business at
the old stand.
Just cause for thanksgiving was
given the mineowners this week, wheu
silver passed the GO cent figure. It is
two years since it declined from that
figure, and a mighty struggle was required to get it back again. Sixty
cent silver and a stiff lead bounty
surely ought to revive the businesii
of the country.
The Grit press ave becoming reconciled to the fact that there is a Tory
government at Victoria. 'Tis a sad
blow, no doubt, but the situation must
be boruo with. They had"some exciting fun for a few days trying to figuio
out a Grit majority, aud the memory
of it should warm them in the dreary
days of opposition to come,

Conservatives have hastened to redeem their ante-election pledges to
reform tho civil service. A partial

wero outclassed. Mr. Maedtmald is

countries, witli the assurance that silver will receive a fair nntl permanent
valuation. The outlook for the white
metal is considered bright, more po, in
fact, than for years past.
Hon. Joseph Martin declared last
week that he was sick of polities and
