The peerage to lea-d. the Army, the Bar, and the Church. Ah a-h 1.h; it's very funny, isn't it?" "Bat it answers." "Yes, it works. The British public, cautious and chary, always bearing in mind that 'fouls rush in where angels fear to tread, will rush in here. I see them scrambling for allotments like schoolboys for marbles. Big names, my boy-big and respectable odos—that s all; and damn the scheme, if it weTe to convert melons into chariots and fonr-a. la. Cinderella—tin British public would swallow it. and plan; down their golden sovereigns, eh. Cobham. ol< man. The man who discovered that litti weakness deserved to be canonised by th. City." Mr. Cobham did not like this boisterous mood in Mr. Winstaple. The broker ha, frank-brutally frank-and Mr. Cob ham was one of those who bore office as :> churchwarden in Sydenham; who, when he stepped into the train every evening at Lon- don Bridge, left the cares and anxieties of the City behind, and became a respectable and respected member of the semi-detached aris tocracy of Forest Hill. He felt bound to protest. "You appear to doubt the soundness of the 'Silver Streak,' Winstaple; to doubt it. I say; and if I thought "If you thought what?" "Well, if I thought that-" then there was a. gesture which was intended to fill up tht rest of the sentence. "I should just like to know. Cobham. wha.t you do think; do you mean to tell me that you would subscribe to the 'Silver Streak, yourself, for instance?" "I have no money. If I had-" and there was another gesture, which might ha-F meant "I would." or "I would consider it." or "I would not." The broker, however, as I have said, was in a. boisterous mood, and be did not intend to let Mr. Cobham with his religious scruples off. "I suppose you are not such an a88 as to believe that 'The Silver Streak Gold Mining Company, Limited,' will ever pay a. dividend?' "Of course I do. Do you think, Winstaple. that I, a man of position, and-I hope I am always modest—a man of religion and prin- ciples would assist with my name in floating this scheme if I did not consider it a really good—speculation. The broker roared with laughing. After a moment, during which Mr. Cobham looked indignantly astonished. "Speculation! Jerusalem! what speculation; why you sanctimonious old idiot, you know as well as I do thefe isn't an ounce of gold in the whole place," and Mr. Winstaple gave itay again to his sense of iimour. But there might be," responded Mr. Cob- ham, trying hard to keep up appearances with himself. "Might be! there isn't—isn't—isn't—isn't," snouted Mr. Winstaple, emphasising the repetition with his fist on the table. "Winstaple," answered the promoter, with an air of solemnity, you are joking. If I believed you, even.for a moment. I would ha.ve nothing more to "no with it. I should con- sider it very wrong—very wrong, indeed; as it is, of course I know you are joking; I know it very well, and if you were to swear you weren't I shouldn't believe you- Now, what about Johnson and Jackson? I ought to tell you I saw Jackson yesterday, and they are ready to make a market; they have arrange- ments with half-adozen members of the House to keep the thing lively for at least, a month: then by that time we must get a quotation." Winstaple was willing to allow his scrupu- lous co-operator to ride off on this side matter. There was nothing to be gained by pushing him too far. particularly as the man went straight enough, so long as he was not put in conflict with that extraordinary quality which he had substituted for his conscience. "That's all right. Now you had better see Moses of the Financial Poster,' and get a line put in at once. Something to this effect: 'Rumours are in the air that one of the most important-if not the most important-gold properties will be offered to the public in the course of a few days; it is said amongst people who ought to know that the vendor has sold at a mere song-not a year's yield, in fact. The shares are being eagerly dealt in at long premiums; there will be money made by the lucky ones who get allotments.' Tell Moses I'm in the swim, and he won't be forgotten, and then you, can manage the smaller sharks easilv enough." "Yes; I'll draw up something fetching; then day by day we must follow it up until the list is opened. I forgot to tell you I have arranged for a meeting of the board to- morrow at my office; shall you be there? I got Softsoap to register the company yester- day; I saw no time was to be lost." "I will attend—at What time?" "Two, sharp." "Right. But, Cobham, how do you reconcile all this with YOlllI-religiouø scruples I think you called the things?" added the broker maliciously. "I sincerely trust, Winstaple, that as the result of our labours the shareholders will be .amply rewarded," and with that he took up has umbrella, put on his well-polished hat, I and departed. | Mr. Winstaple was too much surprised to laugh. "If I ocwld only humbug myself like that, what a happy main I should be," he I mused, as he heard the promoter's steady steps on the stairs. The meeting of the board oame off the fol- lowing day, as arranged. Mr. Winstaple had not thought it desirable to summon the rector from ales; there were many reasons, amongst them that it was best the board should be in working order before he pat in an appearance. Then the rector was neces- sary where he was, with one eye on Winifred and the other, no doubt, on Dr. Eocles, and it would be very unwise to withdraw him from that important occupation. Lord Portskewet sat at the head of the table, with Sir Richard Beal to his right, and Mr. Josiah Simple to his left; at the bottom was Mr. ghepston-Jones—with a hyphen. Mr. She]>3ton-Jone« was a son-in-law of Mr. Cob- ham, and his name appeared upon the pros- pectus of all the companies promoted by that gentleman as "secretary pro tern." The "secretary pro tem." was well up in his duties. He had his usual books before him to be called for if required by "my board." and he had a memorandum book in which he made entries of proceedings at board meetings. altered them when necessary or expedient. copied them into bis agenda book, and then submitted them for signature, which, with snieh a business-like board as this, was done as a matter of coarse. "The first thing will be for the secretary to read the DJÏm1!i.e8 of the laet ffljwtins," re- marked fche ctMMnnMh "I beg pardon, my lord." remarked Mr. Shepston-Jones, "this is the first meeting of the directors of The Silver Streak Gold Mining Company. Limited." "Ah—yes. of course, how absent of me. It is two o'clock; I am due at the meeting of Benson Flats. Limited, at three. and I made a mistake; this is our frret meeting as direc- tors of a ootapany, which I have no doubt will. under our fathering care, be a very suc- cessful company. I look upon my companies as I would upon my children. I have not been blessed with children in the proper sense; with me the ancient earldom of Ports- kewet becomes extinct. It is a sad recolleo- :ion. but I trust—I very sincerely trrrst that the name and title I bear will be remembered in the future as that of the pioneer of many successful—very successful commercial enter- prises. Do you know, Beal. I sometimes hope .hat these companies over which I preside will je called Portskewet companies. and so the old title would not die out after all, what do you think?" and the noble lord refreshed himself with a pinch of snuff. "Perhaps, my lord, the board would like the assistance of Mr. Cobham and Mr. Win- staple to inform you as to how matters are -rogressing," interrupted Mr. Shepston-Jones. who was aware of the weak points in his lord- ship's character, and thought it as well to get to business. "Quite right. Jones; send for Cobham." Thereupon the promoter and the broker took their seats at the board; there were friendly nods round, and after a few pre- liminary remarks Mr. Winstaple began— "Proposed by the chairman, and seconded by Sir Richard Beal, that the prospectus of the company, a copy of which was read and is hereto annexed, be issued. That is carried, I presume. Have you got it down ?" he inquired of the secretary. "Stay," said the colonel, "I ought to see the prospectus. "A mere matter of form, my dear sir, answered the Queen's counsel. "Oh! very well; if you say so, of course. ] apologise, go on." "Proposed by Sir Richard Beal, and seconded by Mr. Josiah Simple, that the abridged pros- pectus be inserted in the ordinary news- papers," continued Mr. Winstaple, dicta-ting to the secretary. "Wait," interrupted Mr. Cobham, "toad we not better get a resolution to go to the publie put in first?" "Yes, of course; I had forgotten thai,* replied Winstaple. So all the resolutions were duly proposed1, and seconded, and carried; and if any judge should hereafter make inquiries as to the pro- ceedings at this board meeting he would find everything duly recorded in the agenda book. scrupulously kept by the secretary pro tern.; and he would further find that the chairman and board were duly paid their fees for the important labours they had undergone on behalf of their brother shareholders. "Is that all?" iuqtzired Lord Portskewet, wit.8a a sigh of relief. "I will get. these out for signature. we should have another meeting on Friday," answered Mr. Shepston-Jones. I "Same time, I suppose?" asked the colonel. who having tasted blood in the shape of directors' fees was eager to follow the scent. "I would prefer it a little earlier," remarked the peer; he was an old and well-established guinea pig, with many appointments on his note-book. The time was arranged and the board dis, persed. Mr. Cobham was left with Mr. Winstaple. "That was a nice little note in the "Poster'^ -a, very nice little note," said the latter. "You think I can do my work well some. times, then?" "My dear Cobham. you do not., I hope, delude yourself with the idea tha.t I dobusinen with you because you are beautiful, or wealthy, or influential, or a hundred other things." "What is it, then, to which I owe the felicity of your patronage?" asked the promoter ill more testy tones than he was in the habit of using. "If you must know, it is to your delightful hypocritical cheek." "Really, Wineta.ple, I do not undemtmd you. Of late you have been—well. to say the least of it-rude, positively rude to me; I am hurt. I tell you plainly I am very much hurt, after- so many years-" "Don't say any more a-boot it, old man; but that note, you cannot be surprised. I was completely knocked off my perch—as the parrot said--after your pious remarks of yes- terday. That note! oh, lord. and Mr. Win- sha-ple could not resist the temptation of a, hearty laugh. Mr. Gahham was secretly pLeaaed; his vanity waa flattered, for it was evident the broker1 was delighted with the paragraph he had written and got inserted; and however much Mr. Cobham might, from time to time, be offended with Mr. Winstaple, he was suffi- ciently impressed with the MCoiteiMas amd business capacity of that gentleman to be overjoyed when he clapped his haiods iaz approval. There was a good dea.1 of trouble to be gunet through yet with "The Silver Streak Gold Mining Company." The directore were obtained, and the prospectus was sketched out and ready, with all the other necessary names, true; "out that is not all that is neededt to float successfully a public company-tka*, is in the way in which the British public require that a company should be floated Some of the underwriting had yet to be dan*, and then, although the "Financial Piaster" and its presiding deity, Moses, had been arranged with, and was now going wtTanjr in favour of the new enterprise; there vme a whole shoal of other papers of equal honeew bat of not so large influeuoe a.Twj aroalarfjon, to be propitiated.
