��� pnxiuction, tho Hon. Joseph, Martin's
address and platform, which but shows
the .'inconsistency,     insincerity     and
ct'otiMirof the man.    His address is' a
���Inn��4 'one, in which   lie   plainly   admits
i'.iat on the request for his resignation
as   attoi ney-general   he    refused     to
W'Mgn and demanded that a caucus0 of
r the paily. be  held   to   consider   the
'ijue-Aipn of his resignation.    Caucusses
<tsc held to bind   all   parties   to .it   to-
Mipjiort the decision arrived   at  by   a
niajot ity, and eveiy one going  into  a
(..iiicus is' bound    to   abide   by   that
'licision.     Mr. Martin   was   aware  of
i iiis whetiulie asked for a  caucus,   but
while it was in session he  stated   that
lie would not consider  himself  bound
1-y.tho decision if  given   against  him
and   lie   would   feel   himself   free   to
'oilpose the government.  vAs a man he

When the Hon: F. Carter-Cotton
came over from the Island the other
day a reporter approached him iii Vancouver and asked him if he had anything to say for 'publication. His
reply'would almost convince one that
he is from the Emerald"lsle. Ho said:

Hari 'and  p ret l.v little Ooti Taprore, the (laughter  of tlio zoriiiiil.-ir. or principal land owner, he had been nrningiug a marriagp.  It would .appear 'that when 'everything  ������������������w.as all but saii*r.'.,icto1',iIy arranged a  third' parly.' im wealthy , money , lender,  had intervened, and wilh a considerable  bribe'hail tempted the rjhatiirh to break  . oft" the match, in order lo marry his own '  Gho'money lender's; sou. as ill looking a  youth as .b.t\ "was ' ill humored, to the  zemindar's dan-'hter. " "  ''1 shall be obliged to make use of my  vits.to rearrange this matter," solilo-  (Iiiized the ghatuch as he approached  the merchant's house.,  "It   will  not  be  ��������� an easy affair, but the money lender's  big foe, which I already feel in, my grasp,  should be an incentive to a line piece of  diplomacy."     So.   assuming  a grave  de-  ' me.-inor, (lie glialueh( entered (the merchant's house, .where', having salaamed  and seated himself cross legged on a  mat. he awaited the'opening 'of tlie conversation.  '���������"Well,   ghatuch,"   said   the,.merchant,  with a smile of weleome, for he consid-  r crod  the marriage of  his sou  to the zo-  minclar's - daughter  ,a    good    alliance���������  . "well,   ghatuch,   von   have   brought 'the  ' marriage contract. 'I  supposeV",  ,'  '   "Alms,  no,  worshipful sir,"  replied thc  ��������� ghatuc-1).     "I   regret   to say  that  1  have  cbecn  greatly  misled  in  my   information  concerning   the   zemindar.     In   the   first  place,  the girl  Choti  has a  cast in   her  right eye.''  "Is it possible'.'" exclaimed thc merchant. "How 'did you discover the blemish'.'" . ' ���������     ���������   .  "As I said before." replied the 'ghatuch, without, directly answering the  Question.' "I have been misin Conned.  'She is also a little ianic.' She has a.  limp'when tho walks, worshipful sir.".  ' ''(Jood ghatuch.'", said Llio merchant,  "it would never do to bring such a poor  CL'eatu.n.' into our family, even though  she be thc.zemindar's daughter."  "Bo.-ides, there is a \vliUper." contin'u-  ,cd the'gliatuch, lowering the^tone of his  -voice,   "that the".zemindar  is  losing  his  caste." ��������� c  "Enough!     Enough,   ghatuch!"   cried  the' merchant.     "Say. no   more.  [t   is  -fortunate indeed that you made these  .discoveries before the contract was signed. * Mou may return me'my retaining  fee. worthy ghatuch."  This came as an unforeseen incident  to the worthy ghatuch, who had spent, if  he had not forgotten, thc fee, and who  had neither.the means, nor tho inclination,  to repay the same; so again calling his  wits to his aid he gave the merchant to  understand that,, having in view a far  0 more advantageous match for his son���������  the daughter, in fact, of a rajah, whose  name ho was not then at liberty to mention���������and by that means was granted  permit-sion for the,account to stand over.  ���������So, with many salaams and protesta-  /lions of eternal fidelity lo lhe merchant's'  interests, the ghatuch went on his way  to Ihe house of tho zemindar, congratulating' himself on tiie case with' which  he was escaping his di tii cult*/..  u * * * *       , * =������������������  Arriving at the zemindar's house, ho  found that dignitary had just finished  the morning reception of his ryots, or  tenants, and was at ouco received in  private audience.  "Ah, ha, glialuch!" said tho zemindar,  motioning the former to a seat close at  hand. ��������� "You come about the marriage of  my daughter, no doubt. ' Have yon ���������'*.'-  ranged overylhing with tho estimable  merchantV Have you brought my present, good ghatuchV  "Illustrious sir," replied the gliatuch,  "that is, after all. I am afraid, not a desirable match for your well favored  daughter. I have boon greatly deceived  in my informal ion concerning oui' ine-i'-  cliant. To begju wilh, J have'it upon  the best authority that lie is groat ly iu  debt and li!*ply to lose till his money;  therefore, there is no present. Then his  son, it turns out, is a young ,man of  evil countenance and equally bad- habits,  wlio"-  "Come, come, -friend ft-halnc'i!" interposed the. zemindar. ,"H<nv is it that it  was only hut I .lo days >--i:h'p you as-sured  mo by Ham. .Sh.'.

And'the gliatuch  turned up the whiles of his eyes in pious  deprecation.       , ���������  "What examinations-, then, has the  youth  passed?!"'ashed the zemindar.  "Ah to examinations; sir,", replied lhe  gliatuch in a lone and manner as if that  weren't mailer of liitle importance, "so  far he has not attempted any, but there  is no doubt that tin would carry all be-,  fore him were he to compete with other  scholars.    4 can   aihrm   that   ho studies  ,most diligently in'his own house under a  worthy Brahman's supervision,' most  cx'-ellent zemindar."      '',���������',      ��������� '  "That is, indeed, a different Report of  tho youth to that' which <J have heard,"  replied thc latter dignilarj'? "for it. was  said that he was nn idle, good for nothing boy, who spent the greater part of  his time' in healing and tormenting his  younger brolhers and'sisters. 1 confess  that I do not like the proposal.",    j  "Xoble si;-," continued the ghatuch,  assuming a more confidential manner,  "when 1' add to (he assurance, I who am  descended from Brahma, that,those reports are all false, the additional promise of n handsome present for yourself,'  perhaps your high excellency- will be  pleased to consider tlio matter in,a more  favorable light."  To   the  cautiously  observant  ghatuch  ,tho effect of the inferred money persuasion upon the ��������� zemindai^ was soon apparent, for after protesting that the matter of'a present bore no weight with'him  whatever he at last agreed that rif the  question of caste were satisfactorily settled, that no ill omens we're manifested  and that thc present took the form of a  good sum of rupees he'might be disposed  to think well of the proposition.        , -  Overjoyed at the success of his efforts, the ghatuch, with a'.succession, of  low   salaams,   then* took   his   departure,  'feeling, assured that the money lender's  big.fee was already due in his hands.   .  ���������t !*e aj: * ..  *' ��������� *  Now, a few. day* afterward, "all unconscious of the dismal fatc'iu store for,  her, little Choti Tagore, flying a kite  from tho roof of the zemindar's house,  attracted the attention of a group of  boys out iii the road, among whom were  tho sons of Soman iGopalabrishna, and  Badsba Das respectively. "You see her,"  said young Pinto Badsha, pointing .out  Choti to his playfellows. "She is to be  my wife, and 1 intend to beat her well,  because 1 think that is tho right way to  treat girls."  "How would you like to be treated in  that way yourself?" at once asked young  Hari Gopalnbrislma. who had ,a long  standing feud with the' other boy. "If  she were my sister. I would beat you  well in return." "Yqu would? 1 should  much like to see you do it," retorted the  other, with a laugh' that merged into k  sneer.  Among .boys everywhere, such a position being reached, a personal encounter  becomes" thc sole court of appeal,-and  soon, amid a cloud of dust, the two were  thrashing away iu a fashion, that meant  some bodily ' harm. Down went Pinto,  bringing Hari at the same time to the  ground, where they rolled over and over  until Hari, securing his adversary, compelled him with loud lamentatious to sue  for mercy. .  "What is all this?" called out the voice  of the zemindar, appearing from Liis compound and surveying the struggling  youths. Hari rose instantly and stood,  panting for breath, with flashing eyes  and dilated nostrils, as handsome a  youlli as one would be likely to see in  Cental. .     .  "Y\'hy have you been beating your  playfellow?" sternly demanded the zemindar.  "lie,said he intended to beat the'little  girl on the roof when she came to be his  wife, so I heat-him ro see how he liked  it," catno the explicit rejoinder.  "Oh. indeed!" replied the zemindar,  "And who may you bo, pray?"  "I am Hari, the son of Soman Gopala-  brishna. the merchant," answered the  boy.  "Yon tho son of Gopalabrishna!" repeated the zemindar iu amazement as  ho viewed wilh approval tho manly form  of the boy before him. "There surely  must be some mistake."  "Xo, sir; I am Hari Gopalabrishna."  reiterated the boy, "and that" is Pinto  Badsha whom I have beaten."-  "Cquio with mo," said the zemindar,  "for I must see your parents about something of great importance. And as to  you," he said, turning to the crying-  Pinto Badsha. "if 1 ever find you in my  comp'-wnd, yon shall gel a worse beat-  in:.'', for in spite ot en c-rything the wortliy  glial uch may say 1 am now certain that  yon are a cruel young villain." ���������   .  A:ui next ilny, without the glfatuch's ���������  assistance, the con'.ract was signed by  the ie-:peetive parents for (be marriage  ot Oari Gopainbi'ihhua ami Choti Tagore,  who in due seas-ou lived together many  years in event happiness.���������Xew York  Herald. ,i.
