(Boforo Hon. Mr. .Tusllco MoCrclglil.)
Court opened at 11 o'clook Wednesday morning. Mr. MoColl (Corbould, McColl A Atkinson) appeared
for the crown. The following gentlemen were sworn in «s a grand
jury: H. V. Edmonds (foreman),
O. 0. Carter, H. L. Delieck, Joseph
Dockrlll, W. E. fales, Andrew Fraser, A. G. Gamble, Henry Harris,
J. B. Henderson, J. C. Henderson,
C. G. Major, A. J. MowuU, Jas
Punch, Frank Stinky, W. B. Town-
send. ■
Addressing the grand jury the
learned judge said he was glttd to
find that there were only ii casrrs,
only 2 of which were at all serious.
The lirst cuse before him was that
of tho Queen vs. Bowman, accused
of appropriating timber belonging
to a neighbor. There seemed to be
a dispute about the possession of u
certain piece of land between Bowman and a neighbor, and on this
land the timber had been placed,
and it was appropriated by the prisoner. To appropriate the property
of unother is not larceny unless it is
done fraudulently or deceitfully. In
this case there seems to bave been
no attempt at secresy or deceit, and
he thought tbe grand jury would
have no hesitation in throwing out
the bill. A proper distinction must
be observed between civil and criminal offences. In thc case of the
Queen vs. Isaacs it seemed that two
brothers were handling a revolver,
and while one of thein was loading
the weapon it went off' and shot the
other. They were afraid to tell
their parents bow tho shooting occurred, and told lies about it, saying that some one passing down the
river had tired tbe shot. The question in this case was whether
clf&ne had been committed. Assault
implied u criminal intent, bf the
existence of which '''there was no
evidence in this ease. In the Queen
vs. Wm. Dick, the accused was
charged with criminal assault upon
a girl of 7 years. Ho hud been admitted to bail, and had left the
country. Both parties were Indians. The fads of the case seemed
simple enough, nnd no doubt a true
bill would be found. In the Queen
vs. tho three Spaniards for conspiracy it seems that tho mun Ross,
while under the influence of liquor,
went to the cabin of the Indinn
Jim, who ordered him away and
pushed him off the sidewalk. The
three men then accused Jim of stubbing Ross with a knife, although
five witnesses who saw the whole
proceedings contradict this statement. He recommended the jury
to find a true hill in this case. In
the case of the Queen Mi Chas. and
and Jas. Kelly, the two prisoners
were charged with the death of a
Chinaman last fall. The Chinaman
was passing a blacksmith shop when,
it is charged, one of the boys struck
him with a stone, and the other
kicked him while lying down. The
man died afterwards, and his skull
was found to have been broken. It
was difficult tp imagine how a stone
thrown by a boy 14 years of age
could produce such a result. If the
jurors knew of any nuisance or
crime not mentioned on the docket,
it was their privilege and duty to
bring it before the court.
The grand jury then retired, and
the court adjourned for un hour.
The grand jury returned a true bill
for manslaughter against Jus. Kelly
and A truo bill for conspiracy
ugainst Ross, Cordova, and Al-
verun
Jas. Kelly was then put into tho
dock. Mr. Wilson, of Victoria, appeared for the crown; Messrs. Bole
and McColl appeared for thc prisoner. Before culling a jury Mr. Bole
directed the attention of the court
to the fact that the prisoner in this
cuse had beun taken more than onco
before the grand jury, without counsel, He asked thut a note he made
of this extraordinary proceeding, us
it might form a ground of objection
hereafter. The judge said he had
never before heard of a prisoner
being taken before a grand jury.
He could not imagine that any person on the jury would be imprudent
enough to usk the prisoner auy
question, As the ciroumstanco had
occurred previous to the matter coming into court, he did not see how
he could make a note of it. The
point was argued for some timo, but
the judge remained firm. A petit
jury was then called, and a grent
ninny challenges wero made for both
crown and prisonor, and more than
an hour wus consumed before the
list had been completed.
The crown went over tho circumstances of the Kelly case, which
havo already been mentioned, nnd
are well known. It is snid tho deceased Chinaman, Ah Hock, had
pushed one of the Kelly boys off
the sidewalk, when a stone, thrown
by one of the boys, struok him and
ho fell down and was kicked liy the
prisoner, Tho mnn died, and at
the post mortem examination it was
shown thut he hud roceivod a serious injury od his head.   It would

NUMBER 37
be the duty of the jury to consider
whether tlie deceased came to his
death from injury inflicted by the
deceased. He asked them to put
aside all prejudice and take simply
tbe evidence laid before them and
come to a decision according to ib.
If the jury thought there was no
felonious intent, and that yet the
man came to his death at the hands
of the prisoner, they couldV^lnd a
verdict for assault.
Wm. Moresby (gaoler) was sworn
and said he remembered the Chiftanmn
Ah Chock coming to Mm'and complaining that he hid been Nuaulted;
took him to show who assaulted him;
deceased went to Ovens*'' shop and
pointed out the prisoner as the person;
naked him to be sure, and ho said hu
was quite sure; prisoner denied it, and
said it was another bny; the deceased
Baid, "No; you throw Btone, little boy
ho too much fooloe rae"; got deceased
to swear information out and got a
warrant against Kelly; deceased had a
slight wound over his eye, and a lump
on the side of his head, next morning
he saw deceased lying dead; gave the
body in charge of constable, notified
the coroner, and arrested the two
Kelly boys. (Cross-examined by Mr.
McColl): In Mr. Bole's office witness
and Mr. Bole examined' the heed of
deceased, nnd as a result of that examination a summons for common
assault was Issued instead of a warrant.
Ah Get, being sworo, stated that he
saw Chock pass by the blacksmith shop;
saw the prisoner come out of the shop,
pick up a stono of the street, and throw
it at Chock, who fell down on the sidewalk; saw prisoner then kick deceased;
prisoner returned into the shop and
two men came out, one with nn apron
Snd the other without; thoy lifted de-
consod up, and assisted him to a telegraph post close by; was about 20 or
30 feet off when he saw the stone
throwp, (Cross-examined by Mr.
Bole): Witness got a policeman who
arrested the boys; saw the atone, it
was about two inches thick; did not
see the small boy there; the oiilj per-
sons he saw there were two ladies,
prisoner, and deceased; the two ladies
were about 10 or 15 yards off; did not
know whether deceased waa badly
hurt or uot; deceased cut wood in
winter and worked in a cannery in
sum hilt; knew Ah Kee; had no conversation with him about what he
would say in this case.
Ah Koo, sworn, said he knew deceased; saw prisoner throw a stone at
him; he wns on the other side of the
street at the time; deceased fell, and
prisoner went up and kicked him; saw
some men cume out of the shop; went
with Ah Chock for a constable; next
day saw his dead body in cannery
house in the swamp, (Cross-examined
by Mr. McCt>ll): The witness contradicted the evidence given before the
magistrate, but nothing now was elicited." - ...
Dr. L. R. Mclnnes, sworn, gave
evidence as to the pcist-mortem on deceased; found fracture on right side of
lii-iul, above the skull, which mun;
have produced death; there were a
fuw other slight scratches about the
fnce; tho other parts of head and,body
were in a normal state; a portion of
the temporal bone was stove in, and a
largo blood vessel* had been severed,
and a clot of blood was found pressing
on the brain; witness thought bucIi a
result might be produced hy a stone
thrown; could not hnve been made by
a man falling to the sidewalk from his
own height; a person so wounded could
walk about for some hours. (Cross-
examined by Mr. Bole)!,' No person
could tell the extent of sueh a wound
until a post mortem had been made;
such a wound would necessarily require great force; was doubtful whether prisoner hnd muscular power
enough to inflict such a wound; it was
absurd to suppose the younger brother
did it; the Wound could not be the result of a kick'.
Thos. Ovens, sworn, said prisoner
worked in his shop; witness was in the
simp who" the Chinaman was kilted,
prisoner was in the simp at the same
time, and he (witness) sent'him out
after the Chinaman fell; Fred Kelly
was standing ou the sidewalk when
deceased passed; deceased shoved Fred
off the Bidowalk and ran away, and fell
on tho sidewalk; prisoner was then
underneath a horse shoeing him; called
to him and said he thought the Chinamen must be bar**.; prisoner went out
and assisted the Chinaman up, and he
and nnother white man assisted the
Chimiman to a lamp post at Douglas
Bt., where thoy laft him, nnd prisoner
rotumed to his work; was opposite the
window and could Bee out; Kelly waB
about 20 feet further in the shop; saw
tho Chinaman fall, but didn't aee what
struck bim; saw two rocks oh the sidewalk; hoard nu words pass betweon
deceased and Fred Kelly; deceased
acted ns it he hnd been drinking or
smoking opium. (Cross-examined by
Mr. McColl): Does not remember the
pi i toner boing outside the shop that
afternoon until after the deceased fell;
prisoner had been prubably about an
hour at the horse, nd, did not leave
his work until after the accident.
C. Schumann, sworn, said while
looking at a toam he heard a Chinaman squeal and afterwards fall on the
sidewalk; waa standing near Douglas
st.; deceased was about 25 or SO yards
distant; when he fell thero was one
little boy standing near the blacksmith
shop; he and a companion wnlked towards the Chinaman; there was a CM-
minimi behind us following us up; Jos.
Kelly and ntiuther man came out of
the shop towards the Chinaman.
Samuel Cunningham, sworn, said he
saw a crowd ..bout tho front of the
blacksmith shop; saw Fred Kelly there
aud asked what wns the matter,, to
whiL-h Fred replied that he hit him;
deceased was theu standing up and
•luhn Kelly was holding him.
The juduo said after the evidence of
Ovens that Jns. Kelly was shoeing a
hone at tbe time of the occurrence,
corroborated by Schumann, who said
.Ins. Kelly came out nfter tho Chinaman fell, thero could nnt be much
UilUoulty in reaching u decision. The
jurymen consulted a moment and returned a verdict of not guilty. It
being tl o'clock, the court ndjourned.

Dalnrday Nomina, May s, 1
From unexpected quarters opposition is manifesting itself to tlie
Irish pacification scheme proposed
hy Mr. Gladstone; and, on the
other hand, he is reeeirinj* support
that had not been looked for. It is
quite probable thut Mr. Ohambcr
lnin will come back to his lender,
and it is certain that some prominent liberals hnve lately gone over
to the anti-home rule party. Every
day tliere are new developments
which surprise the profoundest politicians, and parties are now so
hopelessly mixed that it is not possiblo to predict the rosult of tliu
meeting of parliament.
If Greece is not powerful, site is
at least plucky, and her determination to maintain her rights in spite
of all Europe is enough to awaken
genuine sympathy for her everywhere. There is no doubt that
Greece means to tight; but if she
carries out that intention to any
extent it is to be feared there will
be left hardly a grease spot to mark
her place on the map. The grent
powers are already on tlio ground
with their war vessels, ready whenever the occasion offers to annihilate the plucky little kingdom whose
pugnacity threatens to precipitate n
European war. The conflict will be
very brief, and there can be only
one result But we hope yet that
the terrible catastrophe may some
way be averted.
The Chicago Blots.
Every one must be shocked at
the serious disorders and bloodshed
that have occurred in Chicogo. For
many years the politicians of the
United States have fostered the
very element that has now turned
and stung the guardians of the law.
Fenianism has been openly encouraged; the filibustering expeditions
into Canada were winked at; the
dynamite outrages in London were
applauded; and no sufficient measures were-" ever adopted to punish
such men hi O'Donovan Rossa and
his bloodthirsty associates. It has
often been predicted that the people
of the United States would one day
suffer for their criminal encouragement to this kind of criminals, and
it looks as if their turn was coming
now. lhe .Chicago riot does not
seem to liave been of long duration,
but then was bloody work while it
lasted. There is no country where
greater loyalty to the government
exists than in the United States,
and we have hopes that the firm attitude of the people will make cowards of the element which seeks to
profit by outrage. These incidents
ought to teach American politicians
that honesty is the best policy, and
that it does not pay in the long run
to countenance a dangerous organi
zution simply because its votes are
useful nt election times.
The Coming Wave.
Mr. J. Welton Horne, who has
just arrived from the east with the
object of making Vancouver his
permanent home, states that as soon
aa the Canadian Pacific Railway Co.
begins running regular through
trains we may expect to see thousands of people from Manitoba and
the North-west Hocking to tliis const.
Mr. Horne has been nine years in
Manitoba and the North-west, and
ought to know whereof ho speaks.
"While making this -statement he
does not wish it to lie inferred thnt
the territories enst of the mountains
aru worse than some other pints of
the Dominion. There nre thousands
of people there who affirm thnt
climate and resources that region is
good enough for them, nnd who
have no disposition to cross the
Rookies in quest of the paradise of
.which they have heard on the Fa
cifie. But the magnificent climate
and rich resources of this province
have become extensively known in
the east, and an extensive desire
has been awakened to view the
magnificent country and ascertain
by personal observation whether the
wonderful descriptions of it aro true
or not Mot only from the North-
west, but from all parts of eastern
Canada there are large numbers of
people cooing to British Columbia
as soon as the railway can bring
them. There oin He no doubt fliat
thii province, and especially this
part ol it, "Ml w»n witness an up-
proachlng wave of human beings
■noh as has been seldom seen in any
country, and tho question for pre-
sent consideration ia, what shall we
do with them 1 The area of British
Columbia ia very large, and in: resource! it i» certainly not equalled
by any other province in the Do
minion, antl there is no ground fur
apprehension us to its ultimate development.     But  ut  the present
time there is danger that many of
those who come to these shores may
meet with disappointment and loss,
because   tiiey are likely to come
faster than they oan tic absorbed by
the province,     Our resources are
practically undeveloped.    The great
scarcity nnd cost of suitnblo Inbol'
and the absence of capital have prevented the establishiue.it of many
industries.   Our great quartz mines
nre almost untouched ; our iron and
lead :ind silver ores, nnd our marble
and slate and mica quarries have
been  scarcely  uncovered; our unsurpassed timbers  and deep-water
fisheries employ few men compared
with their extent nnd value; our
agricultural  products still fall far
below the (Icmanilsof our.own market.    Tu a community so small us
this the advent of a thousand people
might be'embarrassing, nnd if fivo
thousand were to come within a
month we would really not be able
to furnish them  with accommodation.   The total white population
of British Columbia is about one
third the population of the city of
Toronto; and if within a month ten
thousand people were to take up
tlieir abode in that city and remain,
the resources of the city would bo
taxed to the utmost.    It is quite
possible for us to accommodate ull
the immigrants that are likely to
reach this province withih the next
fifty years if they do not como too
suddenly and too many at first.   As
the population grows and resources
are developed, our powers of absorption will booomo greater; and in a
few years we hope to be able to take
with- perfect confidence   all   that
comes to us.    There is room in this
province for-the whole present population of thc Dominion, but it will
be necessary to develop our resources before such a vast number can
find means of existence among us.
In view of this lnrge immigration it
will be necessary for the government to strain every resource to
prepare the country as far as possible for the reception and accommodation of those who will shortly
come seeking homes amongst us.   It
will be necessary to open up new
ronds to outlying agricultural districts, to build bridges, to supply
new schools, to assist us fnr as possible  in  the  establishment of new
industries with a view to providing
steady employment for the laborers.
Although the provincial   revenues
have of late years been increasing
with gratifying rapidity, a province
that is entering upon such a critical
period of its existence as ours should
not be limited in its operations to
the current revenue.    If we are to
take full advantage of the opportunities now before us, we must count
upon   liberal   expenditures.     The
notion that each year's expenditure
must be restricted to the actual receipts can not always be adopted.
Not one business man in a hundred
conducts his affairs on his own individual  capital,   and   governments
ought to administer public affairs
on business principles.     If  it is
needful for the province to borrow
money let it borrow, for it must prepare to meet as far as possible the
new circumstances in which it will
soon find itself in such a way as to
make the most of them.    It will be
the part of   a   wise government,
therefore, to • devise a liberal and
progressive policy; and if it goes
into debt to carry its policy out, the
country will sustain it in so far as
its expenditures aro honest, judicious, and in the public interest.

A Good Advertisement. — The
''Fresh Water Terminus" seems to
have been well advertised in eastern
Canada. In the Globe ot 23rd April
we find the following telegram dated
New Westminster, April 22: "The
first sod of the C.P.R. branch to New
Westminster, the fresh water terminus,
was turned, with imposing ceremonies,
to-day. Canon fired a salute, and the
artillery and rifles furnished guards of
honor. All the public bodies were
represented, the city decorated, and
the day kept as a holiday. The city
will be illuminated with bonfires to*
night; there is general rejoicing;"
Our Steam Service.-The Vancouver Herald talks a good deal of rot
about mail matters. We never said
the Louise had n tin boiler or that we
wanted the Rithet on this route. The
Louise, we believe, has an excellent
boiler and excellent machinery, and is
the safest boat belonging to the company. Tho Rithet is not a suitable
boat for the service at all. Our complaint is that the mails arrive many
hours later than they should arrive,
and that the conditions of thi; mail
contract are being continually violated
to the great inconvenience of the people of this city. Against the 0. P. N,
Co, we have no wish to say a word beyond what is necessary in the public
interest. In the matter of mail services this city is being shamefully
treated.
Miit Route Wantbd.—Hon. Jay
Ewing, the newly appointed U. S. consul at New Westminster, and Mr. R.
S. Cunningham, one of the proprietors
of the woollon mill to be built in that
city, paid Blaine a visit this week,
arriving at thia place Tuesday evening,
and returning home on Wednesday.
Both expressed themselves, as very
favorably impressed with the country
through whioh they came and confident
ot the future commercial importance of
Seminhmoo Bay and Drayton Harbor.
Mr. Ewing waa surprised to learn of
the lack of ao important and urgently
needed mail service as a postal routo
between hake and New-Westminster
would appear to be, and at the inadequate and irregular means of communication generally between tho two
places.— Blaine Journal,
Didn't. Know it was Loaded!—
Some mischievous person, poured a
quantity of loose powder into one of
tho cannc na in the Drill Shed. On
Monday night, while a number of
persons were in the building, an artillery man who happened to haven
friction tube about mm inserted it in
the breach of the gun and exploded
it. This communicated with tbe powder, of which there must have Seen
two or three pounds, and the gun
went off with a report that shook the
whole building and nesrly blew out
one Bide of it. Fortunately no one
was iu front, or he would probably
have been killed instantly. Both the
person who put tho powder iu the
gun nnd the person who exploded
tho tube ought to bo punished. The
ono was criminal: llu-other was careless.
Oranitb Crirk,—Under date of
April 21st Mr. Tunstall, gold commissioner for Granite Oreek, Bends the
following report to the minister of
mines: "I have the honor to inform
you that the prevailing froshot on
Granite Creok und the Similkameen
and Tulamoen rivers haB almost entirely suspended mining operations. The
period between the present high water
aud the summer freshet will be of too
short a duration tu justify claim owners
to repair their dams and flumes to
again run the risk of having them
swept away. The other creeks are so
much encumbered with ice snd snow
that it is probable no mining activity
will be exhibited before the middle of
Juno, or perhaps later. This is a very
unfortunate state of affairs fur the district, ns few of the newcomers can
afford to remain idle, and many have
left with reports of au unfavorable nature, calculated to encourage the belief
that tho mines aro a partial failure.
But confidence will be restored whuti
the difficulties mentioned are removed.
Several promising quart* lodges have
buen taken up and recorded. The appearance of tho ore is highly spoken of
by persons experienced iu that important brnncli of mining in Colorado and
Arii-nnn, and I think it would be advisable for the government to have
assays mnde gratis of the various samples I mny forward for that purpose,
in order to affiird some definite idoa of
tliefr value, and mi imitate a search tor
gold and silver bearing claims."
Sabbath Observance —- At the
Methodist conference held in Viotoria
last week the following resolution was
passed unanimously: "That whereas
this convention of the Methodist ohuroh
in British Columbia views with alarm
the increasing snd determined attempts
to desecrate the Christian Sabbath by
the running of steamboatB with its attendant evils, such as the loss of rest
and of the opportunity for religious
worship, thus violating the sanctity of
of a day ostensibly protected by the
lawa of the State aa well as of God,
and aa such a flagrant injustice to man
and dishonor to God outrages tbe moat
cherished convictions of the general
Christian community; be it therefore
resolved that we most respectfully, but
urgently, protest against the grent
wrong and violence which is thus being
done in the secularization of the Sabbath, and trust that in future not only
the owners of steamboats, but all other
employers of labor will strictly regard
the moral sense as well as the civil law
of a professedly Christian land."
White. Bronze Monuments.—White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and haa come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country, It has
been found to be so well adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St, Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made hy
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically indestructible. White Bronze being non-
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to copper or antique bronze,
whlcb throws off a verdigris. The monuments are cast from refined zinc, and are
given their sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against tho
work under a high pressure of steam,
which cuts the surface, but dots not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide wliich
forms on this bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot ba dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is bo tnin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, it is affirmed,
can take place.—Boston Jou-rral of Commerce. Chas. J. Robson, Xew Westminster, ia agent for the White Bronze

A Pleasant Picture.
The Viotoria rimes has been taking
a survey of the political field and has
made a diagnosis of its condition.
Everything iB bright and beautiful for
its political friends, and they are to
carry every constituency and run the
country, for the next four years. Most
of them by that time, it is expected,
will be able to retire and take things
easy for the balance of life. This is a
pleasant prospect, which ought to give
them new euergy to enter upon the
coming contest. The people, too, are
prepared tu fall into line, and bring
about this political millennium. It wiU
bring showers of blessings to everybody, and all are to be tho better for
it This jb the glowing picture which
our contemporary presents to his political friends, which are at least three-
fourths of the people of the province.
This district, if it plays its cord** right,
may come into possession of some $35,-
000 which the provincial secretary has
at his disposal. That amount would
be vary acceptible, and we shall endeavor to get a pretty large slice of it
for thia city. To tell the truth, however, we have run across no person
who has heard anything -abofit this
money, or about any boast pf the provincial secretary with regard to it. If
he really wants to get elected, he has a
very good show, with that amount of
money to baok him up. We are afraid,
however, that the story of tbe Times
has a great deal more of fiction than
fact about it, and our contemporary's
political frienda had better reserve
their indignation until they have something more tangible to lay hold of. It
would be a pity to waste it on the
strength of a very improbable story.
We might also say to our contemporary
not to worry himself over much about
this 'money matter. He may rest
assured that the people here are not in
the political market, and don't thank
the Times for insinuating that they are
a purchasable commodity.—Vancouver
Herald (Independent).
Court of Assize.
(Before Hon. Mr. Justice MoCrelglit.)
Court resumed on Thursday morning, when Ross, Alvero and Cordova
were arraigned for conspiracy. Mr.
Bole, who appeared for the prisoners,
pleaded guilty. He uked the court to
consider that theae met; were foreigners and probably thia waa partly the
reason why they had become involved
in the preseut trouble. Thoy Had
pleaded guilty, too, and thrown themselves on the mercy of the court. It
must not be forgotten thst they had
been in gaol now since the 7th Decern*
be, and he believed they bore an excellent character. He called upon the
gaoler, Mr. Moresby, who testified
that the threo prisoners hsd beeu most
oxemplnty in their conduct in gaol.
Although not required to work by the
prison rules, they had worked faithfully, and had not only observed thu
rules of the gaol, but iriveu information to the officers when othen were
plotting escape. His lordship said he
hoped the sentence he wu about to
pronounce would not lead any one to
suppose that he regarded the crime
committed bythe prisoners a trivial
one. It was a most serious crime, but
under the peculiar circumstances he
would impose only imprisonment for 0
months, to date from the 7th December laat.
A crown witness who had not been
present when wanted on Wednesday
waa brought up and reprimanded by
the judge, after which tne court adjourned, the business being completed.
- Vesterday morning the grand jury
made the following presentment, which
his lordship promised to forward to tho
proper authorities:
To the. Honorable J. F, ifcCreighl, Judge
of the Supreme Court of British
Columbia.
My Lord.—The Graad Jury beg respectfully to report to yonr Lordship lhat
in their opinion the cases of Regina v,
Isaacs and Regina v. Bowman were such
as should never have been sent up for
trial.   While condemning the conduct of
the Isaacs boys in making a falae statement that might have involved some innocent person In trouble, it wu evident
that the charge Isaacs wu committed for
trial on could not bs sustained.
The case against Bowman wu evidently an attempt to use Hie criminal
jurisdiction of your court for a purpose
which the civil jurisdiction would have
amply sufficed for, and In both these
cuss the country has been put moat unnecessarily to considerable expense, to
say nothing of the loss of time of your
Lordship and the jurymen at the assize
oa well as (in the latter case) the inconvenience and expense tlie defendant Bowman has boen put to.
We also beg to call your attention to
tbe want of sufficient accommodation in
the court house, not only is the court
room itself inconveniently small, but
tliere is no provision in the building for
either the grand or petty juries or the
counsel attending the court; the ventilation is very defective, and the out premises are insufficient and in liad condition.
The Graud Jury visited the New Westminster Jail, Lunatic Asylum, and Hospital. They have much pleasure in
reporting that the New Westminster
Jail is a credit to the province, both in
respect to the building, thc interior arrangements, the condition it is kept In,
and the manner in whicli it is conducted,
the latter two points being due very
much tn the able management cf its
Warden, Mr. Moresby. There ure some
detects in connection with it that no
doubt will be remedied in time, and the
Grand Jury therefore only now desire to
name three points that aught, they think,
to be attended to at once. A deep drain
should be made at the back to prevent
any drainage iuto the basement, of which
there is some appearance already. An
ornamental fence should be constructed
in front to prevent communication during
the day between the prisoners employed
in the kitchen and workshops with persons outside the building. The Grand
Jury would recommend that the chain-
Song's services should not be used on or-
iuary street work iu the city while so
much remains to be done to the approaches aud surroundings of thc jail,
and when not employed about the building thoir services sbould bo used ns far
as possible in improving the public
squares, a work mucn needed.
In visiting the Lunatic Asylum they
also have to express their pleasure at the
great improvement on former years. The
additions and alterations made have in a
great measure remedied defects previously eltsting and must very much conduce to tbe comfort of the unfortunate
residents as well as to that of their caretakers. Thoy must congratulate the
Superintendent, Dr. Bentley, on the improvements made iu the grounds, employing so many of the Inmates to the
benefit of their mental and physical
health. Everything in and about the
place was found in excellent condition,
They, however, think that there is an
insufficiency of hose in ease of a fire
breaking out, and would recommend the
purchase of an additional quantity.
The Grand Jury roport tlint they cannot continue in the same favorablo strain
In reporting upon the next building visited, as they found tlie Hospital utterly
unfitted for its purposes, No blame is
attached to the officers of the institution nor to the committee of management. They uo doubt do all they can
to keep it in as good condition as possible,
but the buildings are old, and having
been. added to from time to time are
now defective iu arrangement, drainage,
and nearly every requisite for an hospital. They consider it would be useless
ta suggest any but the most complete
change. The location has become unsuitable for such an institution, being
now in tlie immediate neighborhood of
several churches, one large boarding and
day school, and numerous dwelling
houses. They therefore strongly recommend tbat a new building be erected on
one of the hospital reserves on Mary
street, and that the present site be sold.
The proceeds would go a long way towards thu cost of the new building.
The only other matter to report is that
the old mint building, now used as a
public library, is considered to be in an
unsafe condition and liable to fall down,
lt contains in addition to the books and
effects of tha library a quantity of mint
machinery.
1 Trusting that these matters may have
your Lordship's due consideration, thc
Grand Jury have the honor to remain
yonr Lordship's obedient servants,

Episcopal Whitewash.
Editor CoLOMniA>*.—I have heard of
political whitewash, but I think the letter of William Arthur is the firit piece
of "episcopal whitewash" I ever met
with. Mr. Arthur told mo himself be
had written a letter "just to tai* the edge
of" the statement in the Columbian of
the 1st inat. I wua present at the vestry
meeting, and whether it was lively or
aot may be an open question depending
on what kind of meetings one would call
lively. As to whether or not there has
been neglect of duty in the parish your
readers can judge for themselves. As
many of them nre too well aware, the
vicar of Trenant (and Maple Ridge) instead of being in his own parishes during
the week, attending to his parochial duties, is residing in New Westminster.

Chhia-iq, May 4.—In connection
with the -socialist and labor gathering
to-day a serious riot took place. While
a squad of police were passing the
speaker's stand three bombs were
thrown among them, and 5 of them
fell, and severul others were wounded.
Persons living on the west west side,
many squares from the scene of the
disturbance, report that the explosion
of the bombs, which were terrific,
were instantly followed by a fuBilade
from revolvers. About 200 officers
hsd been detailed to attend the meeting and had been in the vicinity since
the sncinlisis began to assemble. At
the time ot the throwing of the bombs
tho crowd had dwindled to less than
1,000. The utterances cf the speakers were alt of the most inflammatory
character, howevor, und the hearers
who still remained grew riotous in
their demeanor. The police concluded
to put an end to the disturbance, and
advancing ordered Ihe crowd to disperse, and at firat the socialists fell
back slowly, the speaker still urging
them to stand (irmly. Suddenly bombs
were thrown, and the police retorted
instantly by a volley from their revolvers. The rioters answered with
theirs, which the sequel shows they
were well provided with. The mob
appeared crazed with a fanatic desire
for blood, nnd holding its ground
poured volloy after volley into the
midst of the officers. The latter
fought .gallantly and at lost dispersed
the mob and cleared the market place.
They are now guarding every approach
to the place and no one is allowed
there. Immediately after the first
explosion the officers who were left
standing drew their revolvers aud fired
round after round into the mob. Large
numbers of these fell, and as they
dropped they were immediately carried to the rear and into the many
dark alleyways by their friends. No
estimate of the casualties can be giveu,
but the police at Desplaines station
state that fully fifty of them were
wounded. The drug stores in the
vioinity are crowded with people who
wore hurt and doctors hnve been telephoned to in aU directions. Before
thu firing had ceased the neighboring
polioe stations were turned into tern
porary hospitals. At 11 o'clock twenty
policemen lay on the floor of Desplaines station, all disabled and probably half that number seriously.
Others were reported to bo still lying
in the open square either dead or badly
wounded. A telephone message from
one of the hospitals says that the
wounded officer brought here has since
died. Officer J. D. Egan died on his
way to the station. Reports at Desplaines station indicate that even more
than wore at first indicated were
wounded among the socialists. The
scenes at the station are heartrending.
In ono large room He some fifty officers,
and doctors all dressing their wounds.
More firing haa just been heard near
the place of the former trouble and
a large number of policemen have juat
left the station for the place. It was
reported that August Spies was in a
Baloon ou Lake street, and the polioe
were sent to arrest him. The relatives of Officers Timothy Flavin, Geo.
Miller and Redding came to the station, accompanied by a priest, who
administered the last sacrament to tlie*
three, who wore dying.
Chicago, May tf.—All is quiet in
the city this murning. Troops continue to guard the threatened establishments. No riotous congregation
reported this morning, and the trouble
iB believed to be over. A feeling of
confidence is apparent that the authorities will bo able to preserve peace.
The outlook, however, in certain portions of the city, continues threatening, but the police are on the alert (o
prevent any gathering. The arrest of
(he lenders yesterday has had a southing effect. Only one of the leading
anarchists is now at large. Evidence
ia being collected against the conspirators with rapidity. Warrants wore
issued last night for the arrest of four
striking switchmen, charging them
with obstructing tha U. 8. mails.
Writs of habeas corpus were Issued in
the case of the twenty-five compositors,
employees of the Arltaitnr Zeitnng.
They will have a hearing in the criminal court nt U'o o'clock this afternoon.
Detectives inspected the house, 372
Henry street, and found 60 rounds of
ammunition, two rifles, a sword-bayonet, a revolver, a billy, and a quantity
of anarchist literature. The occupant
of the house is said by the officers to
be the moulder of the bombs. He waa
arrested nnd taken to the central police
station. Thoy also believe that it was
this man who throw the bombs.

Eaklv Mahkiaors. — About fifty
well-known ladies have contributed to
the Brooklyn Magazine their views
upon early marriages, and some interesting, if not novel, views ure given
upon an important subject. The majority of the writers agree that marriage should not be too early, before
character is formed, nor too late, advocating the age of twenty-five as a safe
time for a woman to enter upon the
marriage relation. Mn. Harriet
Heechor Stewe sees the blessed possibilities in young, ardent affection and
favors youthful marriage, while Mrs.
Louise Chandler Moulton aays that
two of the happiest marriages in her
knowledge occurred when the woman
was twenty-eight in one instance and
thirty in another. Many writers deplore marriage "for the sake of buinr
married."
A Scotch dominie, after relating to
his scholars the story of Ananias and

not strike everybody dead who told a
lie?" After a long silence, one little
fellow got to hia feet and exclaimed:
-'Because sir, there wadna be anybody
left."

The Boycotted Baker.
Tho story of tho triumph of Mrs.
(Iray u like tho story that tho Indian
mythology is so foud of repeating about
oue of the big Hinduu gods whu grew
stronger every time he touched tho
ground. Just so, every timo one of
the boycotters' circulars touched the
pavement in front ol the bake shop it
sowed the seed for an uxtrn pie. So
many of theso circulars fell and tho
call for extra pie grew rapidly in consequence that threo extra bakers had
to be taken on to try and keep up with
the demand. Then every timo a boy-
cotter was arrested it meaiit new
orders, and su on the whole lhe baker's
wife has reason to bless the strike.
From all ovor tho country words of
encoum-emont and live-dollar bills
liavo como to Iier and her daily mail
has grown tu be as great aa if she wero
president instead <d a modest littlo
woman with a Quskbr-colored mime,
"A Friend uf Personal Liberty" sent
$5 all the way from Hnlyuke, Massachusetts, yesterday- to be sent in bread
for the French hospital, and four oilier
persons seut in equal amounts to bo
spout in charity.
The poople over at Ward's Island
seemed to yearn fur hot cross buns,
and asked to lie served from the Hudson-street shop, and a great iflilliunarc
out towards Irvingtoii confessed to n
liking for gingerbread and ordered
enough slabs of the hrown edible to
pave his lawn with.
One man, George Altrup, went out
to feel the public pulse yesterday afternoon with n handful of boycotting circulars. He quietly refused to go away
nnd so a policeman took him to Jefferson Market, where a fine of S2 settled
his case. No other demonstration was
made, and fur the preseut the buyout*
ti-rs are resting on tneir oars. If anybody does not believe that Gray's bakery ia a bigger place than the Stock
Exchange or the Brooklyn bridge let
him take a ride in a Hudson-street car.
The conductors uf other cars do not
call out the city hall ur thu postoffice,
hut every Hudson-street car conductor
with a proper appreciation of the
gravity of the situation stops his cm*
in front of No. 508 and calls out ''Mrs.
Gray's bakery—all out for the boycott." And if the car holds its usual
crowd, half- tho people climb out and
go inside the shop tu experiment with
digestion-destroying delicacies. Trade
is better now than it haB ever been,
and six of the nine grocers who quit
taking bread from tho shop have como
back into tbe told. Two of the others
are expected to return like prodigal
sons on Monday, and theu the place
will be running just about as it was
before the cruel war began,.—N, Y,

Tlie Home-Rale Controversy.
Nbw Yobk, April 24.—Smalley in
his cablegram to Sunday morning's
Tribune says: "The homo-rule controversy holds the field. The great meetings at Newcastle and Birmingham on
Wednesday proved even more important than had been eipected. Lord
Spencer's speech at Newcastle was by
far the most helpful to the government
of all publio declarations since Gladstone's own. The authority of Lord
Spencer's name, deservedly very high,
has been daily invoked ou behalf uf
home-rule, but fow supposed that the
conversion of the late viceroy of Ireland was so complete. Ho blesses
whom he once cursed. He eulogizes
men against whom he wielded all the
terrors of law. Not content with supporting home rule, he pays a tribute
to the Home-rulers, who loaded him
with calumnies. He acquitted the
IriBh representatives of complicity in
crime, believes tliat the new Irish parliament will bo faithful to its mission,
and repels all suggestions that tho Irish
nation wishes for that complete separation whioh Parnell at Cincinnati proclaimed as its real object. Lord Spencer, while still asserting the possibility
of enforcing law and preserving order
in Ireland, believes that the Knglish
democracy will not persevere in coercion, and therefore pronounces the old
methods exhausted, and asserts that
nothing is left but a policy of trust in
the Irish people and Irish leaders. He
would not, however, trust them to
deal fairly with'the Irish landlords,
and thinks it would he mean and
treacherous if the Imperial parliament
neglected to defend the landlords' interests. The expression uf these sentiments by a man occupying a position
io exceptional aa Xord Spencer pro
duces an impression which ia probably
stronger with the country in general
than with the press. The Time* objects that his judgment in council was
never so much esteemed as his conduct
in administration, and insists that
every argument which he uses is not
leas valid for total separation than for
home-rule. Tho Birmingham meoting
the same night served tor something
else than nn announcement of Chamberlain's ultimatum. The strongeat
Liberal association in the kingdom,
expressing tho deliberate conviction of
the most intelligent, energetic, and influential of English constituencies, has
pronounced against Gladstone's homd-
rule schemes. The body known as the
Two Thousand, whom Chamberlain addressed, are federate caucuses ut all
seven electoral divisions of Hirming-
ham. They met under the presidency
of Schuadhorst, thu guiding spirit uf
the Liberal associations throughout
England. They paid every compliment to Oluddtotio, but declared themselves hostile to Gladstone's home-rule
measure unless the cBtmntial principles
•lid features shuuld he modified, and
hostile to land purchase in any shape.
The efforts of the party managers to
avert this declaration failed, us did
mamevres to bring about a breach between Chamberlain and his constitu-
•nts. Birmingham speaks with a single
voke. Negotiations fur com promise
have mot with a check which souui
filial. Chamberlain's hist word i
harder than tho tirst. He insists o
the retention of tho Irish «t Wwtinin
ster, no taxation without i-epnwmta
tion, a separate assembly fur 1'Utei
and no land purchase at any prico-
Gladstone'a assent to these condition--.
to be signified before the second read
ing 6? the bill. So vanish nil hopes of
conciliation between Gludstuiiu and
(Jhamb*rlaln.! Thesobeme thua modified would cease to bo Olmlstoiiu's
aohenrt."1 '	
"Iany, waiter!"!shouted tho impatient gentleman; "do you know -that
you remind one of the millennium,
you're nflhi lohgtimechmiiig.. 'I
beg your pardon, air," replied the polite attendant, "but foa also remind
me of something, to-wit, the Ainorwjn
eaele-auoh a dUtanee between up,
you know." The matter was straightway Mttled by arbitration.

Manitoba, the Speaking (imi.
Far away in the groat Northwest
lies a lake which 1ms givon ft namo lo
the province formed in the Rod River
country, known as Manitoba. From
an island in thia lake, in the atillueaa
of night, issues a mysterious sound.
Thu 0jib Way Indians will on no account'approach thia island or innko n
landing thero. They believo it to be
the home of tho ''Manitoba, tho Speaking (lod." Tliis curious sound is caused by the beating ot tho waves on tho
huge, flat, thin stones that lino the
shores. At the northern extremity of
tho island there ia a low cliff of line-
grained, compact limestone, which,
under tho stroke of a hummer, clinks
like steel, Tljf waves beating on llio
shore at the foot uf tho cliff cause thc
fallen fragments to rub against each
othor and give out a Bound rose mhl in g
the chimes of distant church bolls.
Thia phenomenon occurs whon the
gales blow from the north, and theu as
thc winds subside luw wailing sounds
like whisperiug voices are heard in the
air. Travelers assurt that the effect is
very impressive, and they have been
awakenod at night under tho impression that they have been listening to
church bells,-ADufenque Times,
Burdette on the Boycott.
Ono day a Boycott strolled into the
tuol-liouso and sat duwn for a chat.
Tho hammer and a saw, a pegging awl
and a trowel and other honest tools
took advantage of the entrauce of a
boy looking for something ho had no
business tu take, to move a little further awav- ''Why do you avoid mo?"
asked the Boycott. "Am I not a
friend of labor? Am I uut ils might-
iest weapon ? Am I not your common
defender?'' "Excuse us," replied an
old sltdge, who was seven up iu the
civil-service liatF, "but you dun't seem
to be one of us. Thoro is a smell of
Russian prison about you, a stilling
taint of Gorman oppression, a stench
of English repression, and a foul odor
of Hungarian pauperism, a general
decayed flavor of ighbi-ance and brutality, and a senseless ferocity that we
don't like. We know it isn't your
fault; it was bom of tyranny and helplessness, but it isn't American, and it
isn't pleasant. You have a foreign air
about you that makes the room close
und offensive. Oo out and wade around
and hunt fur the Oregon for about six
months, and you'll come bnck as clean
as a Chinaman. (Jo soak yourself,
boycott yourself, and ace how glad
we'll bo to welcome you into the shop."
This fable teaches us tn remember that
no civilized Christian man ever yet
learned tu throw the boomerang with
danger to his enemy ur safety to him*

A Good Story.
A story is told of a New York drummer who was detained at a small town
in western New York a while ago,
where a revival meeting was in progress. He had met a party of convivial friends during his stay thero, and
had what iB popularly known as *'a
load on," Nevertheless he drifted into the revival meeting and took a seat
well up in front. It was rather close
in the ohurch, and the warm air was
conducive to sleep. Tho drummer
yielded to the drowsy god, and, after
nodding a little, sank into a profound
slumber, and slept through the minister's rather long and dry discourse.
The audience sang a hymn aud tho
drummer slept on. Then tho evangelist began hia address, and wound up
his forvid appeal with this request;—
"Will all who want to go tu heaven
please rise?" Every ono in the church
oxcept the sleepy drummer arose.
Wheu the evangelist asked them to be
seated uno uf tho brothers in the mime
pew as the sleeping drummer accidentally brushed against lum as he aat
down. The drummer rubbed his eyes
and partially awake, heard the last portion of the evangelist's request, which
was: "Now T want all uf you who want
to go to hell to stand up." The drummer struggled a littlo, leaned forward
unsteadily and rose from his seat in a
dazed sort of way. A sort of suppressed laugh he heard from somo uf
the younger people, and an expression
of hurror he noticed on the faces of
some of tho older ones. Steadying
himself against the rail he looked at
the uvangeliat an instant, and then
said: "Woll, parson, I don't knuw just
exactly what we'ro voting on, bnt you
and I seem tu be in a hopeless minority." 	
American Pish Proflnets.
Senator Fryo has intelligently emphasised the importance of American
lish products in tho debate in the Senate respecting the attitude uf the
neighboring Dominion toward United
States vessels engaged in that line of
industry. The stress laid upon that
particular part uf tho fisheries 'iue§tinii
clearly indicates of what value tho products of the wator are iu the fund supply uf the people, und uf how much
importance it is that that interest
should be fostered.
When the variety and extent of the
inland lakes, rivers, and streams are
considered tho subject broadens and
widens so that statesmen uf all shades
tittmo to see tt as an issue affecting the
people and thu people's purse. How
much it means as a distinct industry
may bo learned from recent reports,
which place the nuinbur of persons
employed in it at about 140,000. It
will be reniotnhured that this is Hot the
smne us thu number of persons engaged
in agricultural pursuits, ur like pur-
suits, as this calling of fishermen nieitus
men or their equivalent. The New
England States embrace about two*
aovenths, the Southern Atlantic States
over a third, and the Great Like Suites
about one*tWoilty-Pfill, or tbe nihil*) as
the Gulf States,
Tin; nuinbur of boats employed in
this industry is estimated ht ■l'o.O(K),
i-alued at nearly 83,000,000* while the
other Hpplmuccs mnke an aggregate iif
abuut $28,600,000 iiiviRBlcd. Thu annual valuo uf thu general lishuriea is
aboat ft'23,000,000, tu whieh should be
added somo $21,000,000 in-ao. Fnr
axiunplo, the value of the oyster liahery
alutio ia not far frnm 815,000,000. In
