Lost in thought the captain strode rapidly tlirongli the park until lie entered a wood of pines and firs that Parted it at one end. The setting sun threw shafts of light betwixt the thick interlacing- houghs, and down the long avenue leading towards Hay- j ton, which he now traversed. The air a as so still that the l*zy roll of cart wheels and the cracking of a \driver's whip in the distance could be distinctly heard. The fading glow in the westj oresenMy-warned him it was time he should retrace his steps; and accord ingly be turned back, calculating he wouM have sufficient leisure to reach the Abbey and dress before dinner was served.

The 3¥ew §ou(li Wales Boyal Commission on Strikes. (BF ELECT arc TELEGRAPH ) (PROM OUB OWN CO RBBSPONDBNT.) STDJSTEI, June 2. The report on tlie Uoyal Commission on. strikes-Commission on the strikes, as adopted on May 22nd, has been presented to his Excellency, and has now been made pubr lie. It declares that the late strike was based on the question of the employment of non-unionists, and deduces that henceforth there will be a wide distinction to be drawn, between shrikes which concern the comfort, of wage earners, and those wliicli concern the combination of the same class. The in dustrial community is now said to be organised into camps, to be jealous and suspicious and ready for a conflict, which may in a few months destroy the savings of* many, which are k>st in strikes which aim at securing better terms for vr&ee earners. Friendly conferences are suggested to this end, and a court of conciliation recom mended, apd for strikes which pass beyond this stage arbitrati...
WHAT INVENTION HAS DONE. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
WHAT INVENTION HAS DONE. What lias invention done? Well, this will - serve asan example merely. It used to take by old methods, as compared with inventions now used, five times as muck labor in boofc nuudn;, four times as much in flour making, tlrree times as much in coal mining, ok times as much in making tin cans, three limes as much in carriage making, and ten times as many looms can now he managed by one weaver. At a silver mine in Nevada a stream, of water falling 460ft is made to turn a water-wheel, and gives 200 horse-power. The same stream is carried down another 1680ft., and is caught on six water-wheels, giving off 730 horse-power, which by means of electricity is conveyed to the surface, and rues a 60-stamp battery. It. is by the same indentions-the water-wheel and electricity that the great task of using Niagara is about to be effected. Only 4 per cent, of the water will be used: it will not be noticeable, but that quantity will supply 120,000 horse* power. The power wil...

THE BACCARAT SCANDAL. LONDON, June 3. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 6 June 1891
THE BACCARAT SCANDAL. London, June 3. Sir Charles Russell declared that Sir Gordon Cumming's only motive for his action urns the hope to prevent his expulsion from the clubs and the army. If he was innocent he would not so easily have sacrificed his honor for fifty Princes. He would call a witness to prove his absolute dis honesty. Mr. Arthur Wilson described minutely Sir Gordon Cumming's methods of increasing the stakes, The re was a sensation in Court when he said he told Levett, but the latter dis believed him, bat afterwards watched Camming, and was convinced. The! cross-examination considerably dis- j credited Mr. Wilson's evidence, owing to his youth, and rawness. Later. The Gordon-Camming gambling case has been closed.

Lilacs. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891
Ulacs. In the dear old-fashioned garden The lilacs were in bloom, And filling all the evening air .With delicate perfume. He plucked a spray and gave me ; "Read it, Janet," he said; The happy tears sprang to my eyes, I felt my cheeks grew red. For I, as William knew iny dear, Was learned in flower lore- " And thus it was the message ran, "I never loved before." "Tis forty-seven years ago, And yet the lilacs bring The mem'ry of that night to me, With each returning spring. I see my lover's handsome head, With curls of sunshine crowned ; I see the moon in silver bars, Upon the grassy ground; I hold the lilac in my hand My heart leaps in my breast, And I hear one sleepy little bird Trill faintly from his nest. And so the fragrant truthful flowers Are woven with my past, .For I was your grandfather's first love And, dear, I was his last 1 And when he calmly fell asleep A year ago to-day, I softly shut within his hand A single lilac spray. And though you'll think it strange, my dear, Fm ...

Female Indian Slaves. [Newspaper Article] — The Northern Mining Register — 13 June 1891
Female Indian Slaves. I The women of all Indian tribea, doomed i to a hopeless bondage of slavery, tlie fate of | their sex in every race, have but few amuse | meats. They accept tkeir condition ! stoically, however, by the unerring law of | heredity through ages of abuse and eerrile | obedience. The lower the tribe in the seale | i of humanity the move degraded are the j women. Among the diggers of Oregon aud , Washington, with which savages I passed three or four years, the poor squaws are to : be pitied. Living on roots and insects which the women must furnish, their exisvance as a taibe may .well be imagined to be a very 4 precarious one. If the camas, a bulb grow ; ing deep in tite ground and very sweet, j should fail or the acorn and * black cricket' | crop .be not plentiful in any year, their j winter is liable to be one of pinching poverty ' and starvation. .
