Our Cable Despatches.

SOUTH AFRICA.
Bloemfontein, March 29.-Sir Alfred Milner
escorted by an armoured train has returned to
Transvaal Colony.
'London, April 1.-The War Offile has received
advices w rom Lord Kitchener, dated Pretoria,
March 30, reporting the capture of 72 Boers in
Orange river Colony. andl otficitly announcing
that Gen. French has taken fifty-o'e prisoners and
received the surrender of ninety-three Boers as al-
ready announced. Lord Kitchener also reports
upon the recent wrecking of trains at several
points.
THE UNIVERSITY BOAT RACE.
London, March 30, Bulletin.-Oxford won the
Boat Race.
London, March 30-Oxford defeated the Cam-
bridge crew to-day in ai hard fought struggle
through rough water, from Putney to Mortlake.
It was a grand race, and at the finish only half a
length separated the two boats. The time was
22 minutes 31 seconds. Cambridge was considered
to have a great a'lvantage, for', winning the toss,
they were able to choose the Surrey side and so
secure some protection from the gale which blew
from the southwest. Off Dukes Head, Cambridge
were rowing 29 strokes to the minute and leading
by a quarter-length; at the Lead Mills. Cambridge
took advantage of the tur' and pulled up until
they ware aqpmarter-length to the good; off Devon-
shire Meadows, Cambridge led by a length, at
Barnes they had put themselves another ltilf-
length to the good. The Cambridge men looked
like winners; the Oxford stroke increased the
pace the men responding splendidly, but the Cam-
bridge men were distressed and their magnificent
spurt by Barnes Bridge was an expiring effort;
from there on, Oxtord holding a steady pace
rapidly were down the lead of the loosing crew,
and dhot :overthe line two-fifths of a length to the
good.
Itliscellanieous.
London, March 29.-The Spectator discussing
the Hay Pauncefote treaty will say to-morrow :
"we cannot help thinking that instead of con-
triving a very effective diplomatic score Lord
Lansdowne would be better employed in asking
himself 'what were the essential interests of the
United Kingdom. We believe mercantile circles
demand that the canal shall be made, and when
it is made it shall be hehd by Americans as we
hold the Suez Canal, and except for keeping
British Honduras which of course we shall keep,
the less we have to do with Central America the
better. As long as we keep command of the sea
and uialss we keep it we shall cease to count as a
nation, we have no need to get into a panic over
the Americans fortifying the canal. Sea power
will control the canal and land besides."
Marseilles, March 30.-The strike here has vir-
tually ended and work has been generally resum-
ed at the docks.
London, March 30.-Lord Salishury according
to the Daily Express is suffering from a kidney
affection which is likely to incapacitate himu for
some time.
Montreal, March 29.-Lt. Col. Dent, who has
been commissioned by the Government to pur-
chase a large number of horses for the army in
Canaldaarrived here to-day. He will leave for
Ottawa in a few days to confer with the Govern-
or-General, Lord Minto and the members of the
Government, and will afterwards visit the north-
west. Colonel ;Dent will urge upon the Govern-
ment the establishment of remount depots in Can-
ada.
Philadelphia, Pa., March 29.-The Norwegian
steamer Krim and the British auxiliary barque
Severn have practically been given up for lost.
The crews of these vessels aggregate fifty-four
men and all are. believed to have been drowned.
The Krim, Captain lrjues, sailed from this port
January 25 for Vera Cruz with a cargo of 2,200
tons of coal. Under ordinary conditions she
should have reached her destination in about ten
days. Since clearing the Delawa.e Breakwater
nothing has heen heard of her. The barque Sev-
ern, Captain Reed, sailed from Philadelphia for
Baltimore and Hampton Roads last September
and left that port for Santos. She has not since
been reported. The schooner Florence, Captain
Chandler, left Port of Spain for Philadelphia Jan-
uary 10th with asphalt amndt is long due.
Manila, Mirch 29.-After being convinced of
the capture of Gen. Aguinaldo, Gen. Geronimo
the Insurgent leader in the province of Morong
Luzon has surrendered with six officers, 46 men
and 50 rifles to Colonel J. Milton Thompson of
the 42nd Regiment at Sanmateo. As the news
of Gen. Aguinaldo's capture spreads through the
Archipelago, the Insurgents are becoming dis-
heartened and there is a marked increase in the
number of individual surrenders.
London, March 30.-Snow storms and blizzards
were general throughout the northern part of
Great Britain yesterday, and strong cold winds
in southern England. Much damage was done
to telegraph and telephone wires.
Jamaica, W. I., March 29.-H. M. S. Pallas
sailed Wednesday for Belize.
London, March 30.-Mr. Herbert Gladstone
memberof Parliament for West Leeds has issued
a letter to his constituents containing an indict-
meat of'the Government, which the Daily news
declares will be welcomed by all Liberals as a bu-
gle call to action and as worthy of his father's son.
He appears to have struck a note on which a ma-
jority of Liberals can unite against what even the
conservative organs admit to 'e the weak man-


agement of the-party in power.
The following are extracts from the letter which
is a short one. "Temperance reforms are scout-
ed, the six million people of London are denied
their rights in regard to the water supply which
Leeds has had for years. There is Legislative
sterility. The war in South Africa will cost not
far short of 200,000,000, and the settlement
seems as far off as ever. There are problems to be
solved in the far east, of the first magnitude, and
the Government appears destitute of a clear set-
tled policy. Already the huge expenditure for
the ai'my andi navy is going up in leaps and
bounds, and will force Europe to add to its ruin-
ously large Aarmament. Where is it to
end ? The Irish question is more to the
front than;. ever, and the Government
seems to vew it with a pathetic impotence.
The advocates of the Liberals are not endeavour-
ing to take up the Government's burden until
they have exacted.conditions that the policy will
not again be stultified by the rejection of their
measures by the House of Lords. Whether the
conditions shall be exacted from the King, or
whether the Liberals must frankly appeal to the
country practical abolition of the House of Lords
is not quite clear. But any way as the Daily
News says, It is a bold and somewhat startling
suggestion in which Mr. Gladstone seems to have
put his finger on the weak spot of modern liber-
alism."'
Washington, March 31.-The Navy depart-
ment early this morning received a cablegram
from Admiral Reeney, Commander-in-Ciihief of
the Asiatic station giving a brief account of a fire
in the sail room of the gunboat Petrel," and of
the death of the Commanding officer Lt. Com-
mander Jessie Roper as a result of a heroic effort
to rescue the men below. The despatch also
shows that 22 other officers aud men were pros-
trated, but all have recovered.
London, April 1.-The following bulletin re-
garding the condition of the Premier was issued
last evening ; Lord Salisbury was attacked with
influenza on March 23rd. The illness has run
the normal course a-d has been attended by the
usual prostration. The temperature however h is
been almost normal for the last two days and his
Lordship's strength is improved with increasing
power of taking food. It is hoped that he will be
able shortly to get a change to the south, which
he had been contemplating at the time of the at-
tack.

Accra, Gold Coast Colony, March 31.-Three
hundred men of the West African regiment, who
deserted at Kumassi, marched armed to Cape
Coast, where all business has been suspended ow-
ing to a fear that the deserters will loot the
town. One hundred and twenty troops were
despatched from Acera to Cape Coast Castle to-
day to suppress the revolt.
London, April 1.-The Yoka-Homa correspon-
dent of the Daily Mail who records various indic-
ations of preparations for war on the part of Ja-
pan says :-Interviews have appeared with prom-
inent statesmen, all breathing the war spirit. and
expressing the general opinion that it is impossi-
ble to allow Russia a free hand in Manchuria.
This is the gravest crisis from the point of view
of Japan since her war with China.
Paris, April 1.-The Premier M. Waldeck
Rousseau is suffering from an abscess in the thromi
Buff.lo, N. Y., April 1.-There were 15000
visitors at the Pan American grounds yesterday,
among them President John G. Milburn and Di-
rector of Works Carlton, of the exposition com-
pany. In reply to a question, Mr. Milburn said
" this weather is full of promise for us; with a
continuance of reasonable fair weather, the entire
exposition will be finished, and ready for opening
on May Ist, with little or nothing remaining to
be done."
London, April 1.-From a statement made by
Mr. Chamberlain, the Colonial Secretary in the
House of Commons to-day, it appears that the
South African war has relieved the British char-
tered South Africa company of all financial liabi-
lity in regard to the .Tameson raid, the Colonial
Secretary admitting that the claims of the Trans-
vaal had not passed to Great Britain as the result
of conquest.
Glasgow, Apl. 1.-Little remains to be done to
the hull of the Shamrock II. beyond the finishing
touches and putting in place the fittings on deck
and below. Her waterline length is expected to
be within two inches of the ninety feet allowed,
or two feet longer than that of Shamrock I. Her
pole mast is believed to be the longest spar ever
stepped, and her boom will measure 112 feet from
the goose-neck to the outhaul. The canvas carried
forward will have a base line of 71 feet. The
mainsail is said to be the biggest ever put toge-
ther, and is expected to have enormous driving
power.
Yokohama, March 30--The feeling that there
can be no peace in the Orient, save by administer-
ing a drubbing to Russia is growing stronger. If
the powers do not take measures to curb Russian
aggresion Japan must undertake the task alone.
Coupled with the strong under-current of public
opinion is the evidence that the Government is
preparing for the emergency with the utmost pos-
sible diligence, unceasing activity at the various
naval stations and yards is reported. The na-
tion is evidently gathering its resources and ener-
gies for the struggle.


A hard winter coming after a poor harvest has
produced a famine in the province of Apulia in
southern Italy and bread riots have broken out in
places.


Grand Naval Review.


Police Court, Hamilton.
30th March, 1901.
A West Indian, who refused to disclose his name
to the Magistrate, but who afterwards admitted
to the assistant Gaoler thbt he was named Alexan-
der Daniel Stewart, ,a Pative of Jamaica, was
charged before the Wor. I. W. Appleby and C. G.
BtItterfield with having tered by night without
lawful excuse a dwelling house inhabited .by
Stewart Petty and other' so as wantonly to an-
noy or alarm persons dwelling therein. The
charge described the defendant as "a person
whose name was unknown to the magistrates,"
and lie was duly identified by the comlplainant
and Extra P. C. Zuill. The defendant pleaded
Guilty to the charge, giving as an excuse that lie
entered the house to obtain shelter. The magis-
trate sentenced the defeddlant to pay a fine of 2
and costs, or in default to be imprisoned for one
calendar month with harti labour. The defend-
ant being unable to pay the fine was imprisoned.
1st April, 1901.
The investigation into the charge made against
Robe- Woodfield for entering Mr. E. C. Guest's
store in Hamilton and stealing a sum of money
therein, was continued and further adjourned an-
til this morning.
Manuel do Liveira, a Portuguese, was fined 10/
and costs, or to be imprisoned for 10 days in de-
fault of payment for having been drunk and dis-
orderly in Queen Street, Hamilton, on Saturday
night last. The fine and costs were paid.

IH.I.S. Tribune's Dramatic Company.

Last Friday evening, at the Mechanics' Hall, a
most enjoyable entertainment was given by the
above Company to a very appreciative audience ;
notwithstanding that t4ere were other attractions
in the city the same eveqiug, the attendance was
fairly good. The programme was made up of in-
strumental and vocal Music, sleight of hand,
card tricks and thought reading. This, in itself,
would have made a spletidid evening's entertain-
ment, well worth the admission charge, but when
the Boys in Blue do things, they do them in a
right "Royal" Imanier ; so they gave us also a
screamingly funny farce 'entitled Turn Him
Out."
Of the various selections in the first part of the
programme, it would be inlidious to comment on
one more than the other, each being received with
well deserved rounds of applause. Messrs Peng-
elly, Springhall, and Bunker kept the audience in
fits of laughter with their comic songs : "Just for
Curiosity," What Ho She Bumps," and Get-
ting it by Degrees." The indefatigable general
manager Mr. Jas. Mulligan was obliged to request
the gods" to refrain from whistling, which
they did with good grace much to the delight and
comfort of the other oeoupants of the Iali. The
patriotic4-ougI-T'eiSteS -S'pangied Banner," was
well rendered by Mr. R. Crispin, his clear tenor
voice filling the hall with melody. Rounds of
applause followed whea Old Glory was un-
furled on the stage. Mr Bunker's patriotic song
" Under the Union Jack," was the song of the
*eening, the applause being simply deafening un-
til hie appeared a second time with the "Old
Flag." Too much praise cannot be tendered
Professor Palmer for the manner in which he
" Did the audience," his sleight-of-hand tricks
being very clever and entertaining.
The second part of the programme was opened
with a selection of popular airs by the band of the
Ship. The Tribune is to be envied in having
such a fine lot of musicians. The curtain being
now rifiug up for "Turn Himn Out," the house
was kept in roars of laughter from the beginning
to the end of that old favourite farce. Mr A E
Elworthy, as Nicodemus Nobbs, entered into the
spirit of the play. Mr W R Bunker was quite at
home in his part as was F R Pendleton, Esq, im-
personating Mr Eglantine Roseleaf. Julia,
(Moke's wife) W F E O'Byrne, Esq, was splend-
idly got up,-no wonder Mr Moke falling in love
with her. As for Susaa, Mr E E Smith, she was
just too fetching for anything." The stage
manager, Mr Elworthy, deserves great credit for
the nice arrangement of the scenery, etc. There
is but one opinion with regard to the evening's
entertainment, that it was exceedingly good and
amply compensated its patrons.

A Legerdemain performance was held in the

by Professor Reney. The audience was a select
and appreciative one. The tricks were very.
cleverlfyWecuted showing clearly the Professor to
be an adept at the art. We should advise those
who have not availed themselves the opportunity
of witnessing the clever performances cf the Pro-

THE "TERROR" AT BERMUDA.
(FROM A BERMUDA CORRESPONDENT.)
That unique vessel, the old "Terror," was
built at Newcastle in 1856, with thickly armour-
ed sides, sloping outwards, for the Russian war,
but never saw any war service. After a few
months at Sheerness she was sent out to Bermuda
for local protection, and arrived safely in the end
of 1857. At first, it is said, she used to steam
round among the islands, and was annually dock-
ed until 1878, but afterwards only every two
years. It was not till 1873 that her engines and
boilers were removed ; she was then fitted as a re-
ceiving ship, and her 24 68-pounders returned to
store, to make room for more men, eight brass
mortars being left on board for saluting purposes.
In the following year her hull was coated with
cement inside, making her sweet and clean, as
she is to this day ; thi4L, with defects, co-4t 90.
For 28 years she has done service as a receiving
ship, but her days are numbered.
Her foretop mast has already been transferred
to the '"salabar's" mizen, where it will be use-
ful for signalling, and the crew are expected to
be sent there very soon, while the officers are to
remain in the old Terror" till accommodation
has been provided in the "Malabar" for them.
It has been suggested, in view of the number of
men that will shortly be employed on the exten-
sion works, and the scanty accommodation on
shore, that some of them may find quarters in
the "Terror." Sihe might be secured near the
shore outside the Short Arm, and roomy and com-
fortable cabins built for 70 or 80 men. In the
Navy List she is still classed as a floating bat-
tery.'-7 he Globe, March 1, 1901.


TO PROMOTE BRITISH1 COMMERCE.
London, March l-.--Presiding at the annual
meeting of the Associated Chambers of Commerce
of the United Kingdom, which opened in London
to-day, Lord Avebury, better known as Sir John
Lubbock, foreshadowed changes in the British
tariff, and urged the necessity of being prepared
to promote the interests of British c;nuuerce on
the termination of the present treaties. Altera-
tions, hlie added, were already being considered in
the treaties with Germany, Austria and Portu-
gal.
He was greatly interested in the outcome of the
tariff war which had suddenly broken out be-
tween the United States and Russia. Naturally,
hlie said, America regarded as a masked bounty
the Rusnsian system of aiding the exportation of
the surplus beet sugar. [he whole dispute illus-
trated the complicated question which arose when
it was attempted to apply protection generally.
As far as Great Britain was concerned, she would
enter into negotiations, not wishing to hamper
or curtail her conuneice with lher neighbours, but
rather to promote it, being convinced that com-
merce benefits both buyers and sellers.
On motion of Mr. Walton, M. P., thIe meeting
passed a resolution to the effect that reparation
for the recent events in China should be sought
in increased facilities for trade, rather than in
money indetmniy.

SOMERS' ISLANDS. I
By His Excellency SIR GEORGE
DIGBY BARKER, Knight

General, Honourable Order of the
Governor and Bath, General, Governor
Commander-in-Chief. and Commander in -
Chief in and over these
Islands, &c., &c., &e.

A Proclamation!
WHEREAS this present Colonial Parliament
stands prorogued to Wednesday the third day
of April instant, 1 have thought fit further to pro-
rogue and do further prorogue the said Colonial
Parliament to
Wednesday, the 8th day of May next,
of which as well the Members of the Legislative
Council as the Members of the House of Assembly
are required to take notice and govern themselves
accordingly.
Given under my Hand and the Great
Seal of these Islands this first day of
April, A.D. 1901, and in the first year
of His Majesty's Reign.
By His Excellency's Command,
ALLAN F. SMITH,
Acting Colonial Secretary.
GOD SAVE THE KING !

South Africa.
The past week has been signalized by some im-
portant additions to the lists of captures already
chronicled to the credit of the British forces in
South Africa. The biggest haul would seem to
have been made by. General Babington who at-
tacked and defeated Delarey, near Ventersdorp,
on the 25th nit. On the same day General French
reached Vryheid, and accounted for 1,200 Boers,
seven pieces of cannon and 26,000 head of horses,
cattle, and sheep. Parties of raiders widely
separated have bcen successfully encountered in
Cape Colony; a commando has been dispersed
at Thaba N'chu ; and the hills around Dewets-
dorp have been occupied by General Bruce Ham-
ilton after some little fighting.
A report to the effect that Dewet had been cap-
tured was circulated by the Portsmouth Evening
News on Thursday; but it is in all probability
without foundation. Mr. Kruger has not been in
evidence at all for some days, and Mr. Steyn is
lost again. He is doubtless elaborating another
masterstroke like the invasion of Cape Colony.
The Hibernians at Westminster opposed the Army
Estimates the other night on the ground that the
War in South Airica is a most outrageous injus-
tice to Ireland, inasmuch as it has been waged
against their Dutch brethren, with whom, ever
since 1690, they have been united in the closest
bonds of friendship. Timothy Healy positively
adores the memory of William Prince of Orange,
and to his mind there is no equal to. Schomberg,
barring, perhaps, Paul Kruger. Timothy will
leave no stone unturned to have justice done to
his brethren. He has the ace of trumps up his
sleeve. He will deprive King Edward VII of the
title Defender of the Faith;" and more, he will
confer it upon Mr. Kruger, albeit there is only
one man . but Timothy is modest.
Much can lie do and more devise. The Irish Na-
tionalists shall speak only Dutch if he but says so;
and he will bring in a bill to change the name of
London to Thamesspruit; Oxford shall be Isis-
burg; and Derry shall be Lundyfontein. When
these reforms have been effected his name shall
be no longer Timothy but Timnotheus; and the lus-
tre of his glory shall far outshine that of Niall of
the Nine Hostages.

London, March 29.-The Saturday Review,
discussing the Nicaragua Canal controversy in a
page article, says : -
There is little hope of the United States do-
ing anything agreeable to England; and, if the
American Government should persist, in defiance
of its pledges, in attempting to obtain exclusive
control of the canal whose neutrality is of the
highest importance to the whole world, there
would be only one course open. The rest of the
world must take steps to protect itself."
The article alludes to American aggression"
and advocates "united European representa-
tions."

THE BRITISH GUIANA BANK.
The 128 Half Yearly General Meeting of the
Proprietors was held on the 16th Feby. 1901 in
the Bank Premises, City of Georgetown. The
Abstract Summary shews the Balance in favour
of the Bank, $167,745.12 consisting of at credit
"Provision for bad and doubtful debts" account
$89,534.58
Interest and Commission Suspense acct. 51,6261.7
Profit and Loss acct. 26,584.37
The following extracts from the Report are of
general interest. :-
The amount at the credit of the Profit and
Loss account does not include any profit resulting
from the working of the Bank's two sugar planta-
tions which during the half-year have been for-
mally amalgamated under the term Ret Ver-
gcnoegen."
Although the profit shewn is considerably larger
than any made during recent half years, the com-
mercial outlook can hardly be said to have bright-
ened. Trade in general was perhaps a little more
brisk at the close of the year. but the prospect in
this direction is no more encouraging for the fu-
ture than the past.
No debts incurred during the six months have
to be reported as bad.
Owing to the prevalence of the Cane Disease
known as Kind Fungus" which has been expe-
rienced in nearly all parts of the Colony, the re-
suilt of the working of many estates has disap-
pointcd expectation. The Sugar Industry ap-
pears nevertheless to have been fairly remunera-
tive, and the advances made by the Bank to Plant-
ers during the period under review are secure."
It wras resolved that a sum of 300 be paid to
Sir Caveindi-h Boyle K. C. M. G. with a request
that he purchase with it a piece of plate, in rec-
ognition of the services lie has rendered to this
Bank."
FIGURES OF THE WAR
Modern war weapons, in spite of the popular
notion to the contrary, are not very deadly. Dis-
ease kills more soldiers nowadays than all the
bullets, bombshells, and bayonets. The War
Office returns show that the total of British
deaths in South Africa up to January 31 was 12,-
989, of which 7,793 died of disease, and only the
comparatively small remainder of 5,196 from
wounds received in action. More men were kill-
ed outright in the three days' battle at Gettys-
burg than have died on all the battlefields of
South Africa in sixteen months.-" World," New
York.

TWO MEN AND A WOMAN.
BY ALEC G. 'PEARSON.
The sohosner yacht Aurpra was slipping briskly
through the blue and s rkling waters of the
English Chawnel, bound fo" the port of St. Peter,
in the Island of Guernsey. It was a fine bright
September morning, %vitla clear sky overhead
and a fresh breeze, salt lad4n, from the heart of
the Atlantic, filling the hollows of the white sails.
There were one or two steamers in si ght, and a
large homeward-bound sailing ship ivas running
up Channel. Right ahead the grey outline of
Guernsey was shewing well above the horizon.
The three people with whom this story has to
deal were seated on the after-part of the yacht's
deck, two of them., Philip Hammon. and Mrs.
Tremayue, is cane chairs on the weather side,
*he flrd, Harold Tremayne, owner of the yacht
and husband of the lady o the sterw grating,


looking through a pair of bineculat glasses ,atlte
islanI. k
We ought to be in harbour by four o'clock -
this afternoon, if the wind holds," Hammond re-
maiked.
Yes," replied Tremayne, though it may
possibly fall light when we get under the lee of
the land."
How long do you intend to stay in Guern-
sey ?" asked Hammiond.
Ab ut a week," replied Tremayne. I
want to run over to Jersey for a couple of days,
though, to see a man I know ; but I shall go over
by the mailboat and leave the yacht and Mrs.
Tremayne at St. Peter's."
Mrs. Tremayne and Hammond exchanged
scarcely perceptible glances.
Will you come over with me?" continued
Tremayne.
I think, if you don't mind, 'I should prefer
to remain in Guernsey. There are so many plac-
es on the island I want to visit, and I may not
have another opportunity for some time."
Just. as you please," replied Tremayne, never
suspecting that there was any deeper reason than
what appeared on the surface why his friend did
not wish to accompany him.
And yet there were mutual acquaintances who
had long guessed at a certain state of affairs, of
which Tremayne had not the remotest suspicion;
and, indeed, had anyone hinted at what was tak-
ing place lie would have regarded that person as
a vile calumniator, and would probably have
knocked himn down on the spot. But he was on
the eve of a discovery. A trivial accident was to
place in his possession the written proof of his
friend's treachery and Constance Tremayne's
shame.
The Aurora sped merrily on, and at four
o'clock in the afternoon Eort Doyle, on the north-
east point of Guernsey, was already well on the
quarter, and Castle Cornet could be distinguished
above the breakwater of St. Peter's harbour.
Mrs. Tremayne had gone to her cabin to make
preparations for going ashore; her husband and
Hammond were on deck. The latter was stand-
ing by the main rigging, a few paces in advance
of Trenayne and with his back towards him.
Presently Hammond took a cigar from his case,
and while he was searching in his pockets for a
box of matches in order to light it lie accidently
pulled out a letter and dropped it on the deck.
A puff of wind blew it to Tremayne's feet, and
he stooped and picked it up. He was about to
hand it back, when he noticed that it was in his
wife's handwriting. There was nothing extraor-
dinary in that, as it might have been an old invi-
tation to dinner, or to one of the many pleasure
jaunts they had been having during the season at
Cowes and Ryde. But chancing to glance at it a
second time-it was not enclosed in an envelope
--a few words caught his eye which were suffi-
ciently startling to induce him to read further.
Then the whole hideous truth, that lie had never
so much as dreamed of, was revealed to him.
lie could scarcely credit the evidence of his
own senses. It seemed impossible; he must, lie
thought, have made some absurd mistake. So lie
read the letter through again. Hammond was
all this time standing but a few paces in front of
him, smoking serenely, quite unconscious that the
secret was at last known.
When he had finished the second pertisal of tihe
epistle Treniiayne folded it up and placed it in
his pocket. There was no mistake, the letter
was in his wife's handwriting, addressed to the
man who called himself his friend. It was dated
about a fortnight back. Tremayne remembered
in a dazed sort of way that business had called
hin up to town about tha, time.
For a few moments he felt too stunned to know
;1larly how to act; the blow had fallen so sud-
denly-so unexpectedly. But after a time the
chaotic thoughits that were surging through his
nind settled down into on clearly-defined idea-
vengeance for the wrong that had been done him.
He mate a step forward, as though then and
,here to) accuse thIe man who was his guest of his
Treachery; but remembering that the he ilmsman
aind one or two of the crew were within earshot
hie stopped, turned round, and walked aft again.
At that moment Mrs. Treimayne c:ime on dleck.
For a ininute or two Tremayne stood gazing
out to sea; then he turned and made some c.isu.al
remark about the scenery, and ino one wonidL
inave guessed by the expression of his face what
was passing in his mind. Nor would anybody,
looking at the three people sta hiding on the
smooth white deck of tl hiandso'me yacht that
was gliding so pleasantly over the sunny waters'
guess that already all the elements of a tragedy
were gathered there.
The wind had fined down to a light zephyr
and veered more to the westward; but there wais
enough weight in it to keep tlie -ails full, and
the water being smooth under the lee of the
land, the yacht slipped past the Lays and head-
lands at a rapid pace. As they came abreast
Salerie Battery the gaff-topsai jil), and jib-top-
sail were taken in, and they aid pmat the light-.
house tl tie end of the breakwiitr.
Dean jib mand foresail ?'aed out Tre-
mayne, and by-and-by the Aurora's head swung
up to the wind, and the great mainsail flapped
lazily in the breeze. Then as she floated quietly
into a comfortable berth the anchor was dropped
and the sails were furled.
The gig was lowered, and Mrs Tremayne went
on shore, as she was going to spend the week
with an elder sister, whose husband, an officer of
Engineers, was stationed at St. Peter's.
After a time Hamimond, finding, perhaps, that
Tremiayne was not in a verb sociable mood, decid-
ed that he too would go on shore and look up
some friends at the Artillery mess. Harold Tre-
mayne made no attempt to detain him or de-
mand an explanation-he wanted to think, and
lie could do that best alone.
But shortly before nine o'clock lie received a
visit from the harbourmaster, and during the
course of conversation that functionary happened
to mention that on a reef of sutken rocks off Pie-
aimmnt P iint the hull of a brig that had been
wrecked during tIhe last gale was still visible at
low water, but was entirely submerged when the
title was high. He also mentioned that the week
previous a fishermani who had boarded the wreck
at low water had accidentally let his boat go
adrift and been drowned when the tide rose. Tre-
mayne paid but little attention to this piece of
information at the moment, but after the har-
hourmaster had departed the story recurred t
his mind, and presently an idea was born an.d
took shape and became matured.
On the following morning he proposed to
Ilanimond that they should make an excursion to
visit this wreck off Pleininumout Point. The lat-
ter made one or two excuses at first, a hlie did
not particularly wish to go, but as Tremayne


was persistent lie at length consented to accom-
pany him.
They started at midday in a little two-and-a
half ton cutter called the Nemesis, which Tre-
mayue had hired for the occasion. The day was
dull and heavy-looking, with dark threatening
banks of clouds gathering in the north, while thie
horizon in that direction was obscured by a bank
af fog.
They arrived at the wreck at dead low water.
Trenmayne made the cutter fast alongside and
stepped on board, followed by Hammond.
The trip was scarcely worth taking on a day
like this, simply to see the remains of this old
rattletrap," exclaimed Hammond, with o.ome dis-
gust.
I agree with you," replied Tremayne. But
I had quite another reason for coming here. Now
that we are alone and free from inteiruption, I
should like to ask you if you have ever seen this
before? And he handed hiim the letter that be
had picked up on the previous day.
Hammond took the document and glanced at it.
One look was enough. He turned white to the
lips but made no reply.
I see you recognize it," continued Tremayne.
" You hound !"
The other stood silent before him, waiting with


fear at hisha'rt for what was to follow.
"If 1 treatAl you as you deserved I should
fling you into tbe-4ea; but as I am the stronger
man I suppose you would consider I was taking
an unfair advantage."
"You have your remedy," tammeltMlmTain-
moud. It is no use disousing the mniter Aese.
My solicitors-"
"Your solicitors Do'you think I am Voilg
to right my wrongs in a law court. 1o! DIT
matter must be settled befwteu ia bis e abd
now."
"Hese !"
"Yea,s here I slhoull have liked weM4hIarve
settled this difference as our fathers used trettle
their dipnutes-with pistals at fifteen paces ; but
as that would be found oat, and would Ate rise
to a scandal, I hive thought of ano"ed' plan
which will do as well. You see I have more con-
sideration for my wife's good nemo then you
had."
What is your plan ? muttered Hammond.
"'An excellent one-as I hope you will agree.
This wreck, as I have already told you, is entire-
ly submerged at high water," continued Tremayne
who now spoke as quietly as though he *&I ar-
ranging a picnic. The tide iA already rising,
presently it will be rushing like a mill rnce be-
tween this rock and the mainlandd; t o awim
through it is impossible. My 'proposithmr islthis :
We will engage in a little game of chance with
dice-my life against yours. High stakes even
for you, Hainmond, and'I believe y m t4ave 0o-
casionally."
What folly are you talking. I don't under-
stand."
"I will explain. We have three throws apiece.
The loser remains on board this hulk. I need
not point out th tt the chances are a thousand to
one against his being picked up before the flowing
tide and the Atlantic swell combined sweep him
away to-well, in your case, perdition. The
winner is at liberty to go away ine iety'.anhe
Nemesis, afterwards account ing for the disappear-
ance of his companion by saying that he acoident-
ly slipped overboard from the hbulk and was
drowned."
You must he mad exclaimed Hamaond.
"Do you suppose I should be such a fool as to
cousent-''
You will! Tremayne answered fiercely.
"Or I will kill you where you stanl."
Philip fltaiunod shrank from him as Tremayne
made a step forward as though to carty his thredt
into execution.
Keep back !" he cried hoarsely. "lGive ife
the dice."
Tremayne handed them over to him.
He knelt upon the wet deck, and with-tremb-
ling hand took his first cast. lie threw cen.
The second time he threw ten again, then eight.
Twenty- i,,ht in all.
Tremayne threw nine, twelve, and ten. Thirty-
one in all.
You have lost! said Tremayne quietly, as
he gathered up the dice an.l put then in his pock-
et.
Then he climbed on to the deck-house, to make
sure there were no lishing-boats in sight. Not a
vessel of any sort was visible; but he noticed
now for the first time that the mist was closing
down on them, and th.-e was an ominous sound
like a hoarse murmuring in the north-east.
Suddenly he heard a splash, and looking round
saw Hammiond in the cutter, in the aut of push-
ing off. With a bound Tre.n.tyne reached the
main deck. The cutter w.as already ten feet
away, and Hammond was hosting the stay fore-
sail. It was a longish jump, ut lieh did it, land-
ing on the cutter's saern. As ae laidl his hand on
the main boom to A-teady himself, Ilammond who
was forward armed himself wi li a b ,.tt-hook.
Knowing whom I have to dead with," said
Tremayne. I ought to have been on my guard
against further treic.icry. We will return-"
He paused, the jumped i ito the cockpit and
grasped the tiller. There was .1 loud hissing close
at hand ; the next moment dthe wind was shriek-
ing through the rigging wit.I a sound like the
laughter of fleds., andl sky and land and wreuk
were blotted out by a whinig a sutberoffog.
Away went the yacht like an arro. deal before
it, with the looso folds of the m.unsail blowing
over the side.
Neither-of the imtn spoke again. Hammond
remained crouching in the bows, while Trem ynue,
eyes anti ears alert, stood at the tiller, andti the
Nemesis went plunging on into the unknown
with the fierce wind howling after her.
That night there blew one of the hardest gales
that had visited these -coasts for m-nnyimonths.
The wind howled a death-rattle in the throat of
the channel, and more than one gallant ship went
to pieces on the black and liungry looks.
Two days later a iseomwAr.l-boitIA4 nt4ur
reported that sie lha.l sightedl a sinateutter yablht
about fifteen miles north of Ushlint, running be-
fore the gale alniosa smothered in whirling spind-
rift. There tw'e Iwo men in her, one steering,
the tather-.tni)g forward by the mast. They
'maItetIo signontrfor assistance ; indeed, the sea
was running so lieavif!that none c mid have been
reudeaed. She went by like a flash, now high
on the crested summit of a wave, now buried al-
most out of sight ia the trough. Soon after she
nimappeared into the gloomy thickness in the west.
it was the last that was ever seen of the Ne-
mesis.
