It  appears that there  has been bid blood  between   the   two  families  for  some  time   past  and   Har/Jy' charges   that  Counrlley   and   his   partner   wilfully  collided    with   hiin   and   his'partner,  Mrs. Share, during the progress of the  dancing.    Hardy   spoke,   to   Coundley  about   the   matter  outside   the   opera  house, and   wotds" led to blows.    It is  alleged   that  Coundley   kicked Hardy  in sucli   a  manner as to cause serious  injuries  about   the  abdomen  and - to  break .his   jaw   in   two   places."    The  latter   is  now" in bed and,,has to take  nourishment   through     his   nose   by  means of a tube.  The case came up before Magistrate  Yarwood.

Excitement ran high for a while  but when the result was finally made  known the enthusiasm of our Liberal  friends was almost beyond control--  another period of libeityand prosperity-   - , ,    .    ,  Mr'. Stewart, one leading merchant,  has received a carload of, Ohilstmas  goods. His store presents ,a fine appearance being tastefully deco'ratcd  for the Christinas holidays.  ' Our popular school-teacher Miss Ui-  quhart lias completed arrangements  for a .Christmas tree to be held in the  public school room on Thursday. Needless to say the'young people are in  high glee over the prospect.  Some, of our lads and lasses on their  Way home from the skating rink a few  nights ago bad ian experience which  they wiil remember for some time. As  they strolled leisurely along whispering "sweet nothings'' thev were  startled by the sound of chains clanking. After a hurried consultation two  of the j'oiing gentlemen decided upon  investigating. , Armed with skates  they crept cautiously for ward through'  the brush a'nd had not gone.far when  they came suddenly upon a large black  bear busily engaged in trying to release  his foot from a trap into which he bad  u'ufortunately stepped, not knowing it  was loaded. Being good law abiding  citi'/.i-ns they did not wish to interfere  with their neighbor.-" property so left  the scene " mighty sudden." Sunif  uncharitable people have since reported  that it was only a marten, hut such is  not the case. ��������� The largest marten in  existence, not'even Joe Martin, could  stimulate these youncr meivto such an  exhibition of speed. i  Mrs. Anderson  has returned from a-  three'months   visit   with    friends   in  MEETING OF (SOCIETIES:,  Proposal of. Federated Board re Hospital Ward Endorsed.  The proposal of the Federated Board  to erect a ward at the Jubilee hospital  for the use of members of secret tpcie-  ' ties has been  taken  up and discussed  by almost all  the lodges of Victoria.  In most cases the plan  has been ,very  favorably received and at a meeting of  the   Federated , Societies the ��������� scheme  was endorsed and refenedback to the  different lodges to ascertain how many  member's were willing to contribute to  it, this information being necessary for  the board to deal intelligently with the  matter in  their negotiations with the  hospital   board.     The   proposal is to  erect a ward adjoining the Provincial  Royal   Jubilee  hospital,   tbg cost  of  which   will  amount  to  about $7,000.  Half of this amount the societies will  have to 'contribute.    It will contain  about  17 or  18 beds, and  be divided  into private rooms and a semi-ward.  There are in Victoria about 2,200 members of lodges. , About 1,000 it,is estimated, will contribute 25 cents a month  until the amout required has been subscribed.    The institution will be maintained after its' erection,by the contribution by members of 10cents m'outhly.  This will enable the members contributing to use the ward free of  charge.  The physicians'services, however, will  be charged for unless the physician be  one employed by the lodge to attend  its members..  Suggestions have been  received by the Federated Board that'  all the lodges of the province be allowed to contribute towards the erection  of   the   building.     Members of lodges  outside-Victoria "would  then come to  this city when ill to enjoy the privileges,  of the free use of, the society ward.'  iIt  would also take some of the weight of  the cost of the erection of the building  oft* the  lodges of this city.���������Victoria  Tiuies.    ,  despatching 3,000 volunteersto fight by  the side of the British troops in South  Africa."    The Liverpool  Postsay.i: ���������  "Sir Charles Tupper and  his friends  came before the electors as more imperialist  and   loyalist   than even Sir  -Wilfrid Laurier, the appeal has been  conspicuously in vain."    The Nottingham   Express   pronounces   that   "Sir  Wilfrid Laurier is a Liberal Imperialist of the best kind."   ' The'Plymouth  News pointe out that "It has not been  a question of party or of country but  of empire.    Sir.Wilfrid Laurier is the  embodiment of this spirit'and that is  the   reason  why French and  Biitish  Canadians   have    joined    hands'and  voice, and proclaimed  him once more  the leader of the colony."  Nor was the attack on the Minister  of  Public.   Works any more effective, I  ,for the Daily Chronicle says'  The Iiiiiieipal Coiineil.  Mr.  Tarte was branded a disloyalist by Sir1  Charles Tupper. It is to his credit  that Mr. Chamber-lain by his attitude  towards, Mr. Tartc, as Canadian Commissioner at'he Paris Exposition, did  what in him lay to discredit this piece  of partisan follj.and it is significant'  that these racial appeals have found no  response ^in- the Maritime provinces  where United Empire loyal ism is most  deep-seated."  Grip' and Password:  Hidden Marvels of Nature.  A party,of Canadian Pacific engineers who were engaged last week, in  exploring the Canadian Rockies in the  neighborhood uf Field, B. C, reporto  the discovery of magnificent waterfalls, one dropping from a height of  1,300 feet, several glaciers, one of  which' rivals the great'glacier of the  Selkirks in its area, and surpasses it in  magr-ilicence of its surroundings, of  mountain lakes of unusual beauty, and  of lofty peaks which offer great tenip-  tatitn ' to 'mountain climbers. They  report that these hitherto hidden marvels of nature can be made easily  accessible by the construction of  trails, and it is understood these  will be built early next spring.  Portland, Ore. Swan looks happy  once more. Her many friends were >o  pleased to see her luck that they determined upon giving her a surprise.  Accordingly invitations weie sent to  Albert Canyon and promptly accepted  and on Tuesday evening sixteen couple  headed by our ever-obliging violinist,  K. Maran, dropped in and immediately  took charge. The spacious dining  room was speedily cleared of chair-;,  table?, etc., and dancing commenced.  An adjournment was made at midnight,  for refreshments when a sumptuous  repast was served. Songs and speeches  were then in order in both of which  our genial host distinguished himself.  With such an array of talent it would  be haul to diaw coinp-u i&ons bin, it  was generally conceded that the duet  rendered by Miss Sandbeig ;uid Mr.  Anderson, with piano accompaniment  by Mv^. Anderson, was til-3 crowning  feature of the oveniuar. After singing  "Auld l/ing Syne" the party di-*  persed having had a most- enjoyable  UlllO,--CuJtKESI,0.\JJliNT,  Disloyalty Falls Very Flat.    ,  The charge of disloyalty brought by  the Tories against Sir Wilfrid Laurier  evidently strikes the.English observer'  as ludicrous in the extreme. The  British Weekly says:���������"The empire  will not soon forget the services he (the  Premier) rendered at the gloomy beginning of the Transvaal war. In the  hour of our reverses not one word of  despondency escaped,him, his speeches  were the noblest and most inspiring  uttered by any of the Queen's subjects.  He showed rare tact and good sense in  ai ranging for the despatch of the Canadian troops without breaking up his  own party, in the best sense of the  word he is a.sane imperialist," and adds  significantly, "French Canada has enthusiastically endorsed the imperial  policy of Sir Wilfrid Laurier ; in Quebec the Opposition are almost annihilated having' secured but eight seats  out of sixty-five." The Sussex Daily  News says : ".The moderate Imperialism of the Canadian Liberals is greatly  to lie admired and their sturdiness in  the hour of danger has increased our  respect for them and the public men  they delight to honor'." The Manchester Courier refers to, "The cordiality  with which the Laurier ministiy gave  effect to Canadian sympathy with the  mother country in her hum of trial by  i. o. F.

The council then adjourned.  Opposition Leadership.  At a .recent meeting in Vancouver  of adherents of the provincial opposition supporting and hitherto led by  the Hon.- Joseph Martin, the advisability was discussed of transferring the  leadership���������for the present at all  events���������to Mr. Smith Curtis, of Itoss-  land, who it is believed would be  infinitely more., successful than "the  stormy petrel," in harmonizing and  solidifying the diverse interests opposed  to   Mr.   Dunsmuir's  government aud  , policy. The fact that Hon. Mr.'Martin's^ health has failed rapidly of late  and his doctors advise that he devote  himself assiduously  to its restoration,  . aftords convenient opportunity for a  tactical change that has for some time  past been counted amo,iigbtue possibilities. ; The transfer of the leadership  was merely discussed informally at the  recent meeting here, but some definite  move will.' probably be decided upon  on Tuesday eveving at the adjourned  meeting to be held in the rooms in the  Whetham, block, when a candidate  will also'bo chosen to contest the seat  vacated by Mr. Garden's resignation  from the legislature.���������Province.  Holiday Rates by the-Canadian Pacific.  In connection with tins Christmas  and New Yeai's holidays the Canadian  Pacific Railway will put into effect the  usual local holiday rates of single fare  for the round",trip.

All who were present at the fip-  worth League Monday evening and  heard Mr. Sullivan's discourse on  British Colutnbift, its scenery and advantages, could not but feel that there  are worse places than the province in  which wclivtji  Steamer Wrecked and Nine Lives Lost.  Tin* steamer Alpha, of Vancouver,  owned by Messrs, Bather and Geuelle,  is at the bottom of Baynes Sound, having struck against the'rocks "at the  baseof the lighthouse on Yellow island  on Saturday evening. Nine lives were  lost including Samuel Barber, one of  theowneis, ,J. II. Barber his brother,  purser, Cap!.. Yorke, three engineers,'  two seamen and a stowawa'v. Tho  Alpha was bound for Japan and it ws������  the intention of llie captain to put into  l.'nion for coal. but. the gale was so  fierce, and the steamer became so unmanageable that he attempted to make  Baynes Sound for shelter. On Yellow  isdaud, at the head of the strait, is a  lighthouse lo warn off ships. The unfrequented strait had to he made by ,  passing to'the left behind the light.  The wind was loo strong and the Alpha piled up on the rocks a hopeless  wreck.  Mr. S. Barber, the principal owner:  who was among the victims, was at  one time manager uf the Imperial bank  branch at Calgary, and was well  known in eastern British Columbia,  having been manager of the Golden  sawmill for seyeral years.  The official count of ihj} voles cast  at the Yale-Cariboo election on the  Olh tilt, takes, place at Kamloops on  Wednesday.  '���������is  ���������Si* THE KOOTENAYQMAIL.

Miiioii ns I was enjoying ft  s.ed.i in my sialetonin Mr. Uentleigh en-  tind l"e ������-a.s looking his old self once  jiio.e and stepped jauntily in. The day  of u'i'loaiing had come at la-d. I nerved  my elf and invited him to sit down on  ll:v uvUcv.  "I suppose you've uiiossod what I'va  come foi V" ho said, with a bland smile.  "I'erl'eetlv," I i-aid, moistening my dry,  parched lio's.. "But 1 regrot to telj yoU������  l mean,' I'm. sorry to inform you that���������  that"-  "What do you mean?" he cried, springing up and facing me.  "The fact is, Mr. Bentleigh���������pray don't  alarm yourself," I implored, for his countenance had assumed a ghastly hue'. "The  fact is, the packet has gone a-missing."  "It's a confounded lie!" he cried.  As I had no desire to exasperate him, I  passed over the grossucss of his language'  in silence.     <-  "I beg your pardon, doctor," said he,  calming dojwn. "I'm not feeling well. I  suppose you mean you can't lny 5'our  hands on it at the moment."  "That's' it,  exactly, Mr. 'Bentleigh,'' I  exclaimed, grasping like a drowning man  at a straw.   "I can't lay my hands on it."  "But you will begin another search���������at  once?" he inquired anxiously" ���������  "I will," said I, with determination.  And I allowed him to depart in a state  of uncertainly.    I  thought it would  be  better for both if  I  acquainted  him in  writing with the exfent of-his-loss.    So  1 sat down and broke it gently to him in  my best handwriting.,  On-tho following  morning I dispatched tho note,,'together  with the purse which he had previously  given me, by the saloon steward.  As I anticipated, he came aft immediately after perusing "it. I was leaning  against the skylight chatting with the  mate when he approached.  "Perhaps you consider this an exquir-ite  joke, Dr. 'Walton," said ho icily, holding  my letter aloft, "but 1 assure you it is a  very serious matter to me.'"  "Mr. Bentleigh," said I, "as God is my  witness, what-1 have written is the truth.  I regret exceedingly what has occurred,  but 1 think even you will he forced to  admit it was through no carelessness on  ��������� my part. Mr. Riley witnessed the accident and will corroborate my story.",  "Well," said the mate, thus appealed to.  "I certainly5 saw the sea strike (he doctor. Some time afterward he came up  from the saloon and said be had lost a  package belonging to you. We searched  for it, but couldn't find it."  ��������� This candid statement by the mate, who  evidently had no desire to commit himself in any manner, did not improve my  case in tho least, and Mr. Bentleigh,left  the poop in a very, bad humor. It was  .perfectly obvious ho was not convinced  of my sincerity.  From this time onward he visited me  almost 'daily in my stateroom 'on some  'pretext or auother, and on eaelr>occasion  ho carefully scrutinized every nook and  corner of the apartment, as if he believed his blessed manuscripts were concealed somewhere in the bulkheads.  After leaving the ship and'until I could  secure a passage in a homeward  bound  'vessel   I   engaged   a  sitting'  room   in   a  boarding house in a retired street in ihe  city   within   two' minutes'   walk   of  the  botanic gardens. I  had only  been  there  a short  time  when   1   had  a  suspicion,  which soon amounted to a certainty, that,,  some one was tampering'with my effects.'  Some wearing apparel  which I had deposited  in  a1 chest of drawers  was  frequently, disarranged, and even my traveling trunks, which I kept locked, had been  opened and their contents turned  upside^  down. . ' 0 ���������  ' '  One evening, when dining at a rei-tau-  .rant in George street, I casually mentioned the matter lo Detective Kirkham of  the Sydney police, with whom I had  struck up an acquaintanceship.  "It's not your landlady," said he. "It's  either the maid or some of the other  boarders.   Have you missed anything?"  "1 can't be positive, but I don't think  anything has been taken."  "Stop a minute;" said he, as if struck  by'an idea. "There is a countryman of  yours just arrived by the. Orizaba; to  whom your story might be interesting  If you have nothing to do this evening  we'll make a move .shortly and interview him." ��������� ,  It was late that night before we succeeded in finding the new arrival at his  hotel.  "Dr. Walton," said the detective, "let  me introduce to you a professional colleague���������Inspector Largeness of the Yorkshire' constabulary."  I bowed to the sharp featured, iutel-'  ligeut looking man who had risen to receive us.  "I brought my friend round, Mr. Largeness," continued the detective, "because  I have an idea that he traveled out with  the party you are in search of.   Have you  any photographs?"  The inspector produced his pockethook,  extracted a carte do visite and handed  it to me with an eager, questioning look.  One glance sufiiced to &how me that it  was my follow passenger, Bentleigh. I  related how I had lost IJentleigh's precious manuscripts on board the ship.  They both burst out laughing.  "American debenture bonds and other  Valuable securities," said the inspector.  "That's what the packet would contain."  "Who is he, then?" ,I asked. ���������  "His real name is Arthur Ernest Job-  son. Ho practiced as a solicitor, and  after embezzling large sums of money,  which ho lost gambling on the Stock Exchange, he absconded with various securities which bad been intrusted to him  by his clients. We discovered some time  later that ho had sailed for Sydney, and  I was sent to bring him back."  "Then," said I, a light suddenly breaking upon me, "do you think it is he who  has been tampering with my things?" ,  "Not a doubt of it. He has traced you  to your lodgings. 1 should like to take  stock of your diggings tonight, if you  have no objection." . >   ...  "Come along, then," said I.  The three of us passed out find a few  minutes' walk brought us to our destination. As we crossed over I observed a  man steal out of the French window of  my sitting .room, which opened on to a  veranda, stare down at my companions,  and hastily enter the adjoining window.  By the light from a gas lamp in the street  1 instantly recognized Bentleigh.  Before he could be arrested ho had shot  himself through the head.���������Penny Victoria!
