He explained how the  meeting come to be called and its  purpose. He did not know exactly  what the promoters had in view,  but there was only one opinion in  Victoria as to the merits ��������� of the  scheme. We had great wealth on  the Island, but needed communication by railway to get. at it. He  would not care to endorse any particular scheme, but the general proposition would receive his heart j  suppurt.  Let our City Council act at once  in, this matter and.'. calF a mass  meeting. Even if we have been  disappointed in this scheme before,  let the disappointment but act, as a  spur to urge the united Island to  further efforts to secure the grand  result, the opening out of our rich  and beautiful country. Let tig  think of our children and strive to  better our conditions. ; .Let us urge  railway extension until we succeed.  . " Burns' Nicht" was held on the,  ;26th in the City Hail.

The  supper was exceedingly well gotten  up, and the zest with which the  many tempting dishes were attacked was a triumph for the ladies who  worked so faithfully to make the  affair a success, and the facts of the  supper being a good one, of the  hall being exceedingly .tastefully  decorated, and of the splendid attendance, .combined to make; the  affair one to l>e long remembered  with pleasure. ������ True, some had to  wait'until some seats were vacated  ' 1* ( >  "at the  board, and  the crush was  rather too great for the dance afterwards, but better this than  a half  filled hall, and the promoters of the  entertainment deserve' the greatest  ,praise, for their .efforts.

The distribution this spring  will consist of samples of ,oai, spring'  wheat, barley, Indian corn and potatoes.

At 9 a negro groom'brought a note  saying they would, sleep that night at'  the Denbams', some fifteen miles away.  A thrill half anguish, half relief, shot  through Ringwood. Best, indeed, that  they should never meet again. He  would take the stage early next morning.  Then on the heels of the negro stumbled in Lee liung. the cook, who had  been 'granted an afternoon off. Blanched to the palest of yellows, he stammered out a tale in his almost incom-  , prehojisJble lingo which, translated,  ran as follows:  Coining home on foot, ho was aware  of a tiuy fire at the foot of Sevier's  canyon. Inspired by ancestral deities,  he had crept up to overhear flu* strangers converse. Developed ilic-y had  learned of Markham ."-.[orris* deposit  that day with the express ajj'onr at Ra*  vcmshood: that they resolved that this  money would circulate better at home  and had shot the unfortunate express  agent through his window, dead men  being proverbially close mouthed; had  seized the packet, which waited the  midnight express, and now only tarried the rising of the moon.

The far, dim stariight'sifted reluctantly down, and the ��������� horse's feet  reached tlie ground more by ..instinct  than sight. Ringwood bent over his",  neck, jockey fashion. 'For a "scant two  miles they kept to a ' badly marked  road, then before them yawned ' the  mouth of Sevier canyon, the broken  trail merely a gray pencil mark among  jagged bowlders and treacherous wave  washed stones,'rounded by old world  floods.  -A'second the'gray,hesitated, and in  that second Ringwood distinctly heard  again Morris' voice: - -  ."To ride through that trail at speed  means almost certain death!" And ho  exulted that the words flowed in 'his  soul Iike( wine. Then ho drove the  rowels in-his horse's' flanks, and the  gray in ^generous anger plunged down  the canyon way at- top speed, every  cbeat of his steel shod hoofs striking-  fire from the rocks. Js'ow they crossed  a bed of clay worn slimily, smooth by  the. softMapping of the low stream, and  here a goat might have fallen and talc-  en no shame to himself, but the gray  ihad that superb and'rare quality which  carries through everything; he believed  in himself. Prcseutly nine-tenths of  the'canyon were behind them, though  the-frowning walls yet hung above.  Once a panther* hissed like'an infuriated cat in their way, but the oncoming might of the two daunted her, and  she fled ignominiously to the recesses  of tho cliff sides and mouthed resentfully after them, dragging behind her  a tail twice its natural size.  But now open woods, the canyon was  in the rear, and before Ringwood a  tiny -fire, with a crude half lent hugging it, and in its shelter four nftn.  Thanks to the half mile of soft earth  betweeu them and the canyon, thanks  to a quarrel already bred among them,  they did not hear Ringwood until he  was bearing do\yn upou them, not fifty  yards away.  Then   they   acted  iu   unison.     Four  rifles  were  cooked,   a  challenge   rang  out:  "Stop or"���������'' .  It. might be a harmless passing stranger, and they did not care for the noise  of a fusillade just now.  - The   answer   came   clearly   on   the  wind:   "D n   you!     Throw  up   your  hands!" a. command they thought unnecessary, as their hands were up, aud  their rifles iu them. They answered  with a fourfold volley of shots. In the  next instant the gray was on them, and  in the chaos that ensued Ringwood was  only conscious that he got in several  shots, that the butt of his pistol had  proved quire useful, that, two forms  had dung to his knees and had gone  down, that, the badly scattered fire was  catching the edge of thetont, and then  he and the gray avoir down in their  turn together, Ringwood oddly thankful, in spite of the fact that sparks  (perhaps from the lent fire) swam lie-  fore his eyes, that the nearest robber  made a soft cushion. Then fire and  sparks went out blackly.  *        *       ��������� *���������        * * * *  When light came again, the moon  was pouring down her full splendor.

In those days the white bouse, set, back  from the road in a clump of live oaks,  w;as- astir with life and youth. The  master had been a justice of the peace  and had run for the legislature. Men  had called,him Judge Henderson, and  he had walked with "bis bead, erect,  'lie bad had'a neighbor then whose  ������' heart was very hear to his own, but  the war had come and changed every-  ..- thing.

All was silent now in  the house among the live oaks.  , Upon a bed in the large sunny front  room "upstairs lay the master, sick and  deserted���������no,   not' quite   deserted,   for  ' there was left old- Jerry, the last of a  hundred slaves.   The old- man turned  over restlessly in his" bed and, putting  '    up a,thin, bony hand, pushed the gray  hair out of his eyes.  "Jerry!" he called in a feeble voice.

Do you  think I'm a beggar?'' lie turned over  in feverish haste, .his old hands trembling nervously, and, reaching under  the pillow, took out a large wallet,  which he.opened, displaying a number  of crisp new bills. "Money! There,  take what you want!"  A look of awe came over the"old negro's face; then he smiled as with  trembling hands he took one of the  bills and folded it tenderly. "Yes,  Ma'se Tol; yes, sab. De dinnah be  ready t'rectly." said he. and, bowing  and smiling, he shambled out of the  room.  Two stores, in one of which was the  postoflice; a gin house and a blacksmith  ���������shop constituted the town. One of the  stores was owned by Judge Henderson's former neighbor, who had gone'  out joyfully to fight for the Union aud  had come back broken, one legged, almost a" pauper.  But it was not there Jerry went. He  well knew that his master would eat  no food from that store. So he passed  it by and went ou to the other, where  ���������a busy, practical newcomer did: a general merchandise business for cash.  . "Evenin', Mistah Ross." said Jerry.  to the man Who came forward to take  his order.  "CJood evening. Jerry. How is.Mr.  Henderson today?" asked the proprietor. ���������  "Jec'lge Hihdi'son, sah, am bettah,  t'ank yo'. He am heahty, sah." returned the old negro, straightening up  his bent form and looking with contempt on the questioner.  "Can I do anything for you?" asked  Mr. Ross.  "Yo' kin, salt." responded Jerry, and  he gave his order as if he were speaking to a servant*.  "Yes, to be sure." said the proprietor  when Jerry had finished, "but excuse  hie. xVh. but Jerry, did Judge Henderson send the money? You know we  do only a cash business."  Jerry looked at him for a moment in  r-ilcnce.    "In co'se I  brung de money,"  ;��������� he'said.    "Does yo' t'ink I  done come  hoggin' fo' Ma'so Tol sump'n to eat?"  Tho    proprietor    unfolded    the    bill  ��������� which the old negro  handed him, and  as he saw what it was smiled in a superior  manner.     "Why,  Jerry,  this   is  no  good.     This   is  not  legal  tender,"  said he.    "This Is Confederate money.  The Confederacy fell,sis months ago.  and Confederate notes are no longer  legal tender. They are not worth the  paper they are printed on."  "Ain't no good? Yo' say de money  ain't no good?" responded tlie old ne-  uto. trembling with anger-and disap-  point'inem.

' .,'.'/  ��������� Tho sick man awoke from a fitful  slumber as he heard a step upon the  stairs. For a moment he lay staring  up'at the ceiling and trying to straighten out, lhe tangle in his thoughts.  "Jerry," ho called-at,length impatiently. "You lazy nigger, why' don't you  come on with my dinner? Didn't I  tell you I'was hungry?"  "Yes, sab, Ma'se Tol. heah I is, sah,"  answered Jerry, coming half fearfully  inlo the room. "But���������but. Ma'se Tol"���������  His lips were trembling., and the tears  were streaming down his face.  "Well, -what is it? What do you  stand there ^whimpering like a baby  for?    What's the matler?"  "Oh. Ma'se/Tol," cried Jerry, falling  upon his knees beside the bed, "he say  de Cornfede'cy done busted,- an' de  moncy-ain't no good!"  "The money no good! Sam Ross'said  that?" cried the old mah iu a shrill,  cracked voice. "He's a liar, Jerry! I'll  go, right down there and tell him so."  Me lifted himself upon his elbow and  struggled to sit upright.in bed, but the,,  exertion was too much for his feeble  strength, and he fell back,weakly upon  his pillow.  Then he lay for an hour raving in delirium, alternately cursing the man  who bad refused to take his money  and begging Jerry to-bring his dinner.  The old negro,, remained for a long  time, kneeling by' the bed. moaning  and praying and begging "Ma'se Tol"  just to be quiet, and Jerry would soon  have his dinner ready. - Then a light  broke upon Ids darkness: He arose  and," taking the discarded bill, went  again dowu the road toward the village. He would try the other' store.  No doubt Captain Bob would take the  money, and his master ���������need never  know where the filings .came from.  ���������'Evonin', Cap'n Bob," said Jerry to  . lhe one legged man who came forward  to'moot him.,      '    * (,  "Good evening.

Don' reck'n yo' got nuflin' fo' a sick  man���������no bac'n er co'nmoal er coffee?"  ' Jerry handed the storekeeper the bill |  and stood watching him closely while  he examined it. When he had looked  at it carefully and turned it over and  examined it on the other side, he turned  to the old negro with an understanding look. "Why, of course I have, Jerry; anything you want." said he.  "An'---an'. Cap'n,Bob, am de money-  good?" asked Jerry anxiousbv "Ca'se  Mistah Ross, he say do Cornfede'cy  dune busted an' do money ain't no legal  lindali."  "Sam Ross is a liar, Jerry,, and a  scoundrel too. I'll loll him so the first  time I see him. The money is good for  anything in this store."  lie stumped about noisily on his  wooden leg. swearing softly to himself,  until ho had made up a dozen packages  and placed them on tlie counter���������meat  aud eggs, cornmcal and coffee and  whatever else tho meager resources of!  the small store afforded.  "Jerry, toil Judge .Henderson that I  am idea sod to serve him." said he as  he handed the parcels to the old negro,  "and say to him that I will call tonight  to ask about his health and to break  with him a bottle of the old '42. I'll  wager he, hasn't smacked his lips over  anything as good as that these twenty  years." '  - "Gawd bless yo', Cap'n Bob." answered Jerry, with tears of gratitude  in his eyes. "Yo" am a sho' 'nuff white  man."  "No thanks at all, Jerry���������just a little  matler of business. And, Jerry, wait���������  hero's your change."  When the old negro had gone. Captain Robert Stephens, some time soldier  and gentleman, hobbled back to the  rear of his small store, kicked open, the  stove with his wooden leg aud, unfolding a fresh, new Confederate bill, tore  it into bits aud dropped it inside.

DELEGATES TO OTTAWA.  ,        The Hon. Messrs Prior aiid Eb-  , erts left Victoria en route to Ottawa  on the. 17th inst., where they will  confer with the Dominion Government on various important matters  affecting the relations of  the Dominion and the Province of British  Columbia,     The following subjects  will be discussed at,the conference:  ���������Chinese and Japanese immigration; the right of the Province to a  '  larger share of the revenues arising  out* of   the   Chinese   immigration  Act; the fisheries;   the encouragement  of   shipbuilding   in   British  ,. Columbia ;   re-adjustment   of the  lumber tariff ;  Financial relations  of lhe Province with the Dominion;  co operation of the Dominionwhh  the, Province :.in   railway development in  B.C.;   settlement,of the  Sonjihees Indian Reserve, and the  re-adjustment of the boundaries of  Indian  Reserves';   the right of the  Province to administer the minerals  under Indian Reserves;, the salaries  of judges; amenduientpLthe Naturalization Act, so.as to prevent.fraudulent'  naturalization  of   aliens ;  claims for compensation in connection with- quarantine along international boundary line;.and other  matters of minor import. ; Premier  Laurier has arranged to meet the  Premiers of the different Provinces  at Ottawa on the 27th January.  A Provincial Mining Association  has been organized in Victoria,  which is intended to embrace in its  membership representatives of every  phase of the mining industry  throughout, the Province. The citizens of Union will no doubt be  communicated with on this. important matter.  The "Times" gets after the High  School examination in a very decided manner. This paper has  always contended that the, present  school system has too much tendency to cram; Even if there was  time to complete properly the study  of all subjects given in school (not  mentioning exams.) the strain on  pupils is too great. Thefsystem is  a pernicious one.  MODEL OF SHAMROCK III.  The Clyde correspondent of the  Field is authority for the statement  that Messrs Denny Brothers, Dumbarton, are well forward with the  placing of the frames of the Shamrock III. The work of superintending the construction of the yacht is  wholly in the hands of Mr Fife, the  designer.  As is well known, the Shamrock  III is being built of mild steel, and  she will be painted from keel to  rail instead of being polished, as in  the case of her predecessor.  The new challenger will probably  show a considerable difference in  design from the more recent type  in respect that- instead of the long  fin and fiat floor the hull will have  an easy full section. In point of  fact, the departure is'in the direction of providing a safe, Ptrong and  wholesome yacht in place of a rac  ing machine.���������Coast Seaman.
