Dear ��� :    I did not have   time
to finish my hist' two letters as you
may sec:. The/mail goes today at 2 p.
ni. so I believe I can finish this one.
Mail is expected; in camp tomorrow.
The, last letter from home I" received
al- J-tichmond, elated December 27th,
so T should receive a great pile if
papers come also. This paper was
picked up in the Boer laager so was
t he last iettcr paper.
After clay break on Tuesday A
coiuoanv'received orders to occupv the
ruins of a stone house, with one ollicer
and twenty men. Tf the fire was too
hot, thev h.-iei to wait till dusk when it
would have to lie. occupied(at all costs.
The   Oriental   Immigration   Ouest:Yn
Becoming' Alarming. .   ,
A ship   is   now   at   the   quarantine
station .with   unwinds of iSOO Oriental
immigrants on board,  and another is
following close after  her  with a still
larger number.    The stream, has'undoubtedly set in this diicctioi:, and the
question is in   what  -spirit are  v. e.  to
reeeh^e these strangers now flocking to
our shores.    We have been  told that,
in effect, British  Columbia can  never
assuine'hei',proper place as the' richest
province on the North  American, continent   without   Lhe' aid   of   Oriental
cheap labor to  develop  her resotuces.
Well, the laborers are arriving, and  if
the   present' gait 'be   maintained   we
shall    soon     see     BriLish     Columbia
peopled largely" by  Asiatics.    If it be
necessary for our farmers',to employ
Oriental labor in order lo enable  them
to compete with  the agriculturists of
the easl, it will not be long till Chinese
.arc* competing  with  these  i-ame men
for the trade of the mining communi-
ties.    In one department of agriculture
in   the .vicinity of Victoria���and  the
same( thing applies to other portion-- of
the province���white   men ; have, .been'
"driven completely from lhe field,  and,
given a sufficient Oriental  population;
there is no rear-on why the same  thing
should nol, occur in all departments of
agricu'i.iii-.--'.        '   >
It is also t-aid we can never become a
great'manufacturing' community and
that, tlie riches of the mine and tlie
forest can,never be utili/.ed to the fullest advantage without the aid of
cheap labor. Jf these things be so;
what appears to be In .-tore for us its
an Anglo-.Saxdii community? With
Orientals eljgging the Soil, operating
the   mines, v sawing    Lhe , timber   and

Ry the dim  light  I   saw  Elortry  stealing toward' the  stairway with a stout stick in his hand.  Fie shook his head when he saw me and  waved me hack.  I listened and could hear  faint noises from the floor below.   Henry  disappeared dowa the? stairway.   A'moment or two later there was the sound of  a fierce struggle, a  pic-tol shot and  the  noise of running feet.   Then Henry called to me.   'It's all right, ma'am,' he said.  'They've gone, and nothing is missing.'  ]  dressed and went down.   It appears that  there were"three of the ruflians.   They  had  entered  through  one of the  parlor  windows.   They had,the silver packed in  a   basket  and  we're ready  to  go,   when  Henry pounced on them.   Tle had  been"  reading with the door of Ins room open'  and fortunately heard them."  "And tho shot?" snid tho judge.   ''  "The ball just grazed Henry's shoulder  and buried itself up there iu the door casing.

Saturday   night. ' The   judge  would  represent the" home college,  and  , Albion,   the   competing   college,   would  bring,, its own judge,,tho two to select a  third.   Judge Bingham consented, to act  arid  was glad   to  oblige  his old friend,  the college president. - ,'       r  "   "You're an honorable -man,  I  know,"  laughed the president as he arose to go,  /'or I shouldn't have, dared to select.you.

"Why," explained  the president, "y  ���������employee.    As the days passed he knew  that the horse was well cared  for and  that the grounds were kept in excellent  condition.     Only   once   or  twice  did  he  ��������� catch sight>of 1 ho boy.  1 So September wore away, and early in  ,    October   iui-.-pi-tni.it   business  called   tho  ���������judge, to .Washington.     He  was  to   be  gone two weeks,,and his absence would  1   leave his wife and the maids quite alone  'in the  big, house.     It  was,a  suburban  house on,the college ridge and not close  to its nearest neighbor.*-.  "I don't like the ide*a of leaving you  fllejliethi.i way," said the judge to his  wife. "There -should' he- a man in the  house. Too inany i-asr.;il*j are infesting  the town."  '���������Don't   worry   about   that,"   said   his  wife. VJ have arranged  with Henry to  ,   sleep  in  the little  room  over the back  porch."  "And who is HenryV"  "Why, Henry is the hired boy.    He's  stout and strong, and I don't believe ho<-  is afraid of anything."    '  "All right," said the judge. 'Tcrhnps  that's the best wo can do, but don't forget to keep an eye on Henry."  When the judge came back, lie found  his wife well and everything apparently  all right.  "your letters wore reassuring," he  said to her at the brcakfat-t fable, "or I  should have worried a good deal. Every  time I picked up a paper and read of the  daring robberies all over our neighborhood I thought of you alone here."  "I didn't want to startle or distress you  after it was all over," said his wife, "hut  we did have a visit from burglars, my  dear."  "What!" cried the judge. "Did they  got anything?"  "They got something they didn't bargain for," laughed the lady. "But, really, Edward, It wasn't so terrible. I didn't  for a moment lose niy nerve���������though tho  shooting did kooiji a little startling."  "Shooting!"   cried   the   judge.    "Was  there shooting'?  And when did this happen V  JIM*'   Wsfinestiay nlglitf replied his'  you  are to decide which of our 'three representatives is the school's prize debater,  and one'of the boys tells mo you, have  been very kind to him. But I can tryst  you to he unprejudiced, I'm quite sure."  , And he hurried away. '  'The judge was puzzled.' He couldn't re-'  member  befriending .any of the  college,  boys.  The president must have got things  mixed. t- , '. <- ������.  There was a great,concourse of friends  ;of both sides in .attendance upon the "debate.   The hall was crowded.   The judge  and   his  fellow  umpires,   seated "on   the  platform, 'looked' over  a   sea, of  eager  faces.   He and his confrere from Albion,  Dr.  .Richardson,   had   quickly   selected  , Congressman"Bennett as the third judge,  and theaudieuce gave,them unstinted applause as they stepped upon the stage.  -It was a^ spirited debate.' One of the  leading questions of  the day  had, been  chosen, and it was exhaustively treated.  One  after  another  the  debaters  spoke',  and finally Albion's third champion arose  to .demolish the enemy's .wall of carefully  welded 'arguments.  He was a neatly dressed hoy, with a  strong head, a bright eye and a clear,  resonant voice. Before he had delivered  a half dozen sentences ho held the judges'  closest attention. There was something  familiar about the boy's appearance, and  the judge adjusted his spectacles over his  nearsighted eyes in an attempt to recall  hiin. He was certainly a bright boy���������a  very bright boy.      ���������       '   ������  "A natural orator at last," whispered  Congressman Bennett in the judge's ear.,  . The boy'swept along .with his argument, hammering down- his opponents'  pleas at every period. He did not raise  . his voice: he m:ide, few 'gestures. There  was no theatrical effort to catch the audience. It wf" all clear, convincing, well,  rounded, logical.        '    ,  The-judge sighed deeply as the hoy  reached a brilliant liuibh and a wild  wave of applause swept through the  room.'  He looked down at the card in his  hand. This must be Henry Ashcraft.  Who was Henry Ashcraft? Where had  he met him before?  Five minutes after the debnle closed  Congre-is-iiran Bennett informed the audience that the local college had been ele-  clar-ed tho winner. Then he checked tho  applause anei added that the judges  unanimously agreed that Henry A'-'iicraft  had carried <������fc the highest iiidivielu.il  honors of tho contest.  As the judge turned to go the college  president mot him with outstretched  hand.  "I see." he smilingly snid, "that you  went right ahead and picked the very  boy I warned you against." '  The judge's wife was waiting for his  return. He looked at her keenly as he  came iu.  "What time docs (hat boy Henry get  in at night?" hu abruptly asked.  "Never later than IU o'clock." i-lm answered.    '*Js there anything wrong?''  '*,Yes,'' said the judge, "there is something wroug."  .    lie took a cigar from his pocket  and  stepped  out on  the porch.    As he  was  about to light it the gate clicked.  "Is that you. Henry?" called the judtre.  "Yes. sir." ��������� ,     ~  ' "Come in this way."  The boy followed' him into the house,  nis eyes were shining, and his'i'ace was  flushed. 'J'he judge pointed to a chair.  The boy bowed to the lady ami seated  himself.   The judge remained standing.  "When 1 hired you as my man of all  work," ho slowly Maid.
