Victoria,   May 18th'.���������A   Seattle  dispatch   says   Board    of  Inquiry  reached   conclusion as to  collision  between    City   of    Kingston    and  steamer  Glenogle    on  April   23d.  In brief, the board finds  that the  Glenogle  was   navigated  with   all  due  caution   and    exonerated  the  officers  of    that   vessel   from  all,  blame.    The hardest blow falls on  pilot Brandow of City of Kingston.  In  its  decision  the    Board   states  collision was directly due to giving  the starboard   signal > and  putting  his  engines  ahead   at  full  speed.  As a penolty for  what  the_ Board  terms his unskillfulness in navigating his vessel, his  license as  master and pilot of steam vessel is cancelled.    The Glenogle was awarded  $20,000 damages.

Mr.  Percy mado no  objections, but  kept  his  eyos opon.    Ono evening,   tho  second  of  hip stay at   tho   manor,    ho   saw,   whilo  coming up tho stairs  with slippcrod feet,  tho form of Mr. Davlin as  it disappeared  around  tho   nnglo   loading  to  tho  west  wing.    Thon-Mr. Percy stole  on until lie  etood at the door of the wing.   Satisfying  himself that Davlin   wa.s actually within  the forbidden room, ho waited   for nothing further, but glided  quietly   buok  to  his own door,   looking  ns  imperturbable  as ever ind saying to himself:���������  "Thoro is a mystery; and wo,'rathor I,  am not to seo Mr. Arthur at present.  Well,'5  don't  want  to sea   him; but I  hoirttho cluet? your little gant's^' my frslr  soooud wife."  Lucian Davlin want to the city, but h>.  did not sec a dotcctivo on the track of  Celine Leronuo. Ho choso his man, one  who had servort him beforo, and' set him  about something quite different. TBin  he returned, feeling quite 'satiifhnl and''  .confident of success.  CHAPTER XXXIV.  0 A SLIGHT.  COMPLICATION.  And what of Celine, or Madeline, as  wo may en 11 hor once moreP  She had said, when writing lo Olive,  that her'stay in tho city must be very  brief. Bug even hor strong will could not  keep off tho light attack of fever ri*;t vyns  tho result of fatiguo and, exposuro to  niglit breezes. And she morning following her arrival at the villa, found her un-  uble to risB from her bed.  Dr. Vaughan was summoned in haste,  and his vordict anxiously waited for.  "It was a, slight fever attack," ho said,  "but tbo wearied out body must not be  hurried.    It must rest." "  And he forbado Madeline to loavo her  room for a . week at least unless sho  wished to bring upon herself a return of  hor summer's illness.  Much to his surpriso and gratification,  Madeline did Hot rebel," but replied, pbil  osophically:���������< '���������  "I can't afford to tako any risks now; I  wiil be good.' But you must watch my  interests." .  . During the first day of   her "imprison-  ���������. ment,"-,as she   aughingly   called it. Clarence and Olive were put iii   possession of  ���������all the facts that  bad.   not  already   bfen  communicated by lei,lor.  ..Upon one thins: tht-y wero all agreed,  namely, thau it would ba wiso ' for Clarence to make another journoy to Bellair  "���������.Thoy. won't be able to accomplish  much 'during the week that I remain inactive," said Madeline. "But it will bo  safest to know just what they am about  Besines, t have reasons for thinking that  Henry is growing diasalisii d, and it is  to your interest to keep him whero ho is  for tho present;. Had a suitable opportunity offered, T should havo made him  aware of my identity. But as it did not  prosont itself, I loft it with Hagar to inform him that iic was sarving me by remaining." i  Dr. Vaughan prepared to visit Bellair  on tho second day after tha arrival of  Madeline. But almost at tbe moment of  starting there came a summons from  one of-his patients, who was taken suddenly worso. Thinking to tako a later  train ho hristoned to the sick man; but  tho hour for the last train arrived and  passed, and still he stood at tho bcdshie,  battling with death. So it transpirod  lhat nearly thrsn days had elapsed since  the flitting of Celine Leroquo. whon Dr.  Vaughan entered tho train that should  deposit him at uusk in iho vilagy of Bella ir.  It had been   prearranged  by  Madeline  and Hagar tliat, in case of any event  which should delay tha return of the  formor on the dav appointorl, the latter  was to visit tho post-oih'co and lock fcr  tidings thrjiigh that medium. Madeline  had been due at Oakley tho day before,  and so, of course, to-day Hagar would be  in attendance at the office.  Dr. Vaughan had   written, at   the moment uf quitting his nilico to visit his patient, a hasty .supplement to   Madeline's  letter, stating  that ho   was   delayed   one  train, but not   to   give  him up if  ho did  ���������. nor. appear  that evening.     Ho would certainly como on the nexc day's train.  . ���������     Clarence wa.s somewhat fatigued   as he  en cored    tho   railway   carriage,     having  spont tho entire    night   at the   bedside of  his   patient.    Ho   went   forward   to   the  smoking car, thinking to  refresh himself  with a weed.     Four men  were  engrossed  in a game of cards not far from him.    As  thoy becamo ir.oro  deeply interested, and  their voices  more distinct above tho ioar  of the cars,   something   in   tho   ton's  of  one of tlie men cnught his ear, reminding  him   of   somo   voice   he   had   sometime  heard or known.     The speakor   sat. wish  his back to the yonng inan, and   nothing  of his countenance visible save tho tips of  two huge oars.  Those, too, had a familiar  look.  Clarence arose and sauntered to the  end of tho car, in ordor to got a view of  tho face lhat, he felt assured, was not unknown to him.  ; Tho man was absorbed in his came and  never once glanced up. Our hero having  taken a good look at ths not very prepossessing face, returned to his seat. He  had recognized the man. It was Jarvis,  tho detecirro who had been rec������nfely employed by him to shadow Lucian Davlin.  It was not a remarkable thing that  Jarvis should leave tho city on the same  train with himself, but the circumstance,  nevertheless, set Clarence thinking.  Could it bo possiblo that tho man had  found somotning to arouse his suspicions,  and ho was following up   the due   on his  own account?  Clarence felt an unaccountable desire  lo know whore tho detective was going  If ho was going to Bellair, then he mn.'-t  bs bought over. If ho \\a3 going lo Bal-  Jair, ho, Clarence, must Know it beforo  tho village \yas reached. It was hardly  probable that the m..n's destination was  identical w^th his own. but he had now  detHriiiinad to run no risks.  Throwing back his overcoat, '��������� and sotting his hat a triflo on one'side.- C.arun. e  sauntered up to thu group of card players, assuming an appearance of interest  in tho game. As ho paused beside them.  Jarvis swept away tho-iast trick or a  closely-contested game, and. thon said,  consulting his watch the whilo:���������  '���������There's for you! I've got just three-  quarters of an hour to clean you out, so  come on."  Three-quarters of au hour! The oxact  time it would tako to run to Bpllair. _  Clarence shifted his position so as to  put himself behind tho two men seated  opposite Jarvis. As he did so, tho expert  glanced up, encountering the eyooi'i^r. ���������  Vaughan. "How aro you;-" sntd tho  young man, nonchalantly.  Jarvis shot him a keon glanco'of intelligence, and replied, in the samo oil-hand  tone: "High, you bet!"  Jarvis was attirci like n ?ro!l-to-do'  farmer; and Clarence guessed, at a  glance, that his three companions' were  strangers,,two of them,.being commer.l tl  tourists, without a doubt, and the third,  a ruddy-looking old gent, who might  havo benn anything harmless. - Taking  his cue from tho "-make up" of tho deu-.i������  tive,- Clarence, after giving him an expressive glance, said, easily, "Sold your  stosk?" ' -  Jarvis cooked, up.one eye as he replien,  while shuffling tho cards: "Every horn!"'  -   "Want to buy?"    ,  Jarvis looked him<- straight in the eve.  "Want to sell?" L-  " Yes, rather "  Jarvis dealt round with great precision,  aud then said: "Ail-riant Cap. I'll la k  with you when 1 gee through this  game."  Clarence nodded, and pre=or>t'y s:i;n  terad away.    As  som  as 'his   back   wa=  tnrned, Jarvis.e:ked his   thumb  toward  him, saying, conlldontially:���������  " Young ��������� follow; swell farmer; , big  stock raiser" And then he plunged into  tho game with miicu enthusiasm.  Clarence resumed his seat and, for a  fow moments, thought very earnestly.  Tho words of tho detective had confirmed  his suspicion. He now felt assured that  Jarvis was bound for Bellair, and if so he  was, no doubt, in the employ of Lucian,  Davlin, for some unknown purpose.  , What that purpose was, ho must know at  any cost.  By the time his plans were fairly matured, he observed that tho group of curd-  playors was breaking xip. Iu another moment, Jarvis lounged lazily along and  threw himself down upon the scat beside  him.  In little more than half an hour thoy  would be due in Bellair, and what Clarence desired to say must be said quickly.  Taking out his cigar-case, he offered  tho man a weed, which was accepted with  alacrity, and whilo it was being lighted,  Clarence said: "Aro you especially busy  now?" .  "N-o; only so-so."  "Learned anything more in regard to  my man?"  '''Davlin?'' intcrrogativcly.  "Yes."  "No," puffin������ contentedly; "we don't  move in a case after it's paid off."  "I see," smiling; and thon, makin<r  his first real venture: "Could you no  somo work for mo to-morrow?"  Jarvis looked at him keenly, and Clarence hastened to say, with perfect,' apparent, candor:���������  "Tho fact is I havo boon put hack "by a  patient, and my own personal affairs  havo been neglected. So I have been unable to look you up at tho oil ice, in ordor  to put a little matter into your hands.  To-day 1 am called away unexpectedly."  Then, as if struck by a sudden thought,  "How long will you be otit of town?"  Jarvis shook his head. "Don't know."  "By Jove, what a pity! I'd rather have  you than any other man, and I won't  stand about money: but my work won't  keep long."  Tho doctor's (lattery and tho detective's  avarice combine.!, had.  the desired effect.  Jarvis  unbent, and   became   more   communicative? "Fact. i������." he said,    squaring,  about. "I don't know njy lay just yee''  ''No?'1 inquiriiiglv: "Going far out?"  "Xo"  "Well,'' as if about to stop  the conversation, "I'm sorry you  can't do    the job.  looked at his time-card; thero was bnr  n::e t'>-,vu between them and lhat village  ���������Holding the <-a;\l iu hi5 hand he said:���������  "Wei!, I will try and tell you wbnt I  want done; that is. ii" there is time���������how  sown do you leave the train?"  Jarvis seen red a fat job, and thinking  only of ^eliintr thcparticulars of lhat replied, rather incautiously, as he consulted the time-card in the hand of Clarence. ������  ���������'By goshen! it's only two   stations off  "���������Bellair"  "Oh! Bellair, eh?"  Jarvis nodded ruefully, and then asked:  "Where do you land?"  Clarence smiled a little   as he   replied:  "Wait until you hear  my   business, then  you will know where I'am going.",  "All right; fire away."  And the expert settled   hims������lf   into a  listening attitude.   "The truth is. Jarvis,  I want,you back on the old case."  "What, the gamblcr'.s?"  "Yes, .Davlin; lie is about   at   the end  of his rope,, and will, in a, short time,  !>:;  trying to quit tlie country.   Did you ever  see this woman who  is his   partner in iniquity? ,  You heard   considerable of   ber  while looking up this business."  "Heard   of  her?    I   should  think   so.  Never saw her, though."  "No matter: you may see her soon. Yovi  see, they are now  at   work   upon a   fine  piece of rascality    She has   actually married an old man,   supposing , him   to   be  wealthy, and Davlin   is .figuring, as   her  brother.  In reality, tho old man, their'victim, holds   only  a   life   interest ' in   the  property.   So you see, even if they succeed  with the thing in hand, they won't make  much    And the person who will inherit,  after the old  gentleman   passes   away, is  'aware of their real character and is ready  to spring upon them at   the  proper   moment" ,  Jarvis gave a long, low whistle.  "Now, then, there is' another   crime���������  one that occurred   .some years   ag), with  which this   man   and   woman   are   connected, and they are allowed   to   go   free  for a little time in order   to complete the  evidence in'this second case"  Jarvis nodded sagely  ��������� "So you-sec there will   bo   double fees,  and large ones ' First, from the heir, and  next, from tho  parlies   interested   in the  Co.    w  Limited  JANUARY  A feature of business in this big store- in January  IV MITE Pnnno IS t^le se^nS ������f White Goods���������Cotton Underwear,  WHI11 uUUUS Cottons, Sheetings, Quilts, Musl.ns, Embroideries,  SELLING ?tc' We've prepared a 20-page catalogue, show-  ,'" ing the values offered and that'll be sent free on  receipt of name and address.

Then Brown remembered his dream. He held exactly the  hand that - Smith had held in the dream,  and he broke out in a cold perspiration. -  " 'Dreams go by contraries,' he thought  to himself, 'and it's a  oinch that  Smith  ' has got my. straight flush.' - Then he bet a  whito chip, and Smith came'back at him  with a limit raise, and the limit was pretty  . liigh.    That  blooming fool Brown hesitated for a minute and then iaid down his  ������ hand with a sickly,smilo.,    'Your straight  'Hush beats my hand,'.ho said.     'Howrdid  you know'I had a straight flush?' asked  Smith, surprised.  Then Brown told'about  the dream, and  Smith  laughed fit to kill  himself.    'Thoro's  your dream hand,' he  saidens he laid it out.  Tho eight, nino, ten  and  jack  of clubs wero thero all right,  but the fifth card was tho^even of spades.

About tho same time Managing Editor  Paine was surprised to reach his desk,one  afternoon and find a telegram awaiting  his arrival on which Sl.SO was due. It  was a carefully worded application for a  job from a young man who resided in  Zanesville, O. Such assurance appalled  Paine, and ho sat down and dashed off an-  answer in keeping with a popular song he  had heard the night previous:  "Read your answer in the stars," read  tho dispatch, and it was sent "collect."

Another signalman, on a distant hill  overlooking tbe villago, flashes the news  with a small mirror to the old men, war  women and wives, not forgetting, however, to flash it to tho tepee of his sweetheart, who suddenly finds it imperative to  go for firewood in the direction of the  well known flash.

Now, in a city or large town this  amount .might   not be   excessive,   hut in a  country district where trade is   slim, ' S200  .i  is an exorbitant sum.

' If the"  hotels are taxed so high that they - cannot  run a bar, the income from .other .sources  will not bbe sufficient to warrant proprietors contiuuiug the business. Hence, the  hotels will be closed, the travelling ��������� public  will be without accomodation, and, worst of  ill, illicit traffic in cheap liquor will be inevitable.

In order that respectable hotels should be  maintained, for public accommodation, illi-  cit liquor selling prevented; andcensequent-r.  ly, expense of keeping up" a spy system and  prosecuting'offen'ders be avoided, the most  feasible solution is to allow only one  saloon in a certain 'area, to be run in connection with a good hotel, and to grant license  at a rate proportionate to the trade���������persons wishing to secure such license being  elected by popular vote or petition.  There may be objections to this plan,  but  I give it for what itis worth.  Yours etc.,  TEMrEEANCK.  SACRILEGIOUS BUT TO THE  POINT.  A tramp,who said he was out of '  work temporarily, called at the j  kitchen door -of a residence in Philadelphia lately. He was all a-  shivcr with cold. The servants  being away,the mistress opened the  door and heard his plea for a "bit.  to eat." Being a good woman,and.  remembering the greatest of, the  three Christian virtues, she brought  to the door a half loaf of bread.  "Here," she said to the tramp,  '/take this, but," she added, "you  should not forget I give it to you  not only for your own sake, but for  Christ's, for this is His day"  "Thank you ma'am," replied the  tramp, as he extended his hand and  looked this good Sama:itan in the  eye, "but don't you think that for  God's sake you might put some  butter on it?"  Editor, Cumberland News:  Allow me in all kinduiss to protest  against the Shooting Match to be held on  the 21st inst.as not in conformity with the  law of God. We should lay aside such re-  crertions as are lawful on other days and do  nothing except works of necessity and mercy  on theSabbath. A shooting match is no worse  than a sparring or boxing or wrestling match  or bull fight, fandango or dance on Sunday.  And we have just as good a right to break  the fourth as the fifth or  sixth   Command-  S. F. C.  Sandwick, May 15th, 1S99.

There were seven guhtleman up in  Mr. Dunssmuir's party, but neither  Mr. Huntington nor Mr. Broker  was here. The names arc as follows: Gen. TIkh. Hubbard, 1st.,  Vice-President of the S. P.

As the Islander didn't even  know the riames of the vi>itos,  readers can readily imagine what  that sapient journal's conjectures  are worth. Strange as it may  appear, neither Mr. Huntingdon  nor.

The professional labor agitator is  a man Vancouver and British  Columbia can do without.     JJp-coun-  try papers declare that   several   of  the men implicated in the outrages  in the Coeur d'Alene district are in  British Columbia.    Five got off  at  Marbus en route for uthe  Boundary  country, five got off at   Ymir,   and  five went through   to   the   Slocan.  It is(-.supposed they have come with  the object of   stirring   up   similar  troubles to those recently raised   in  Idaho, but they will find that British Columbia miners are a different  i .ciassuof men.���������News-Advertiser.
