Even foole will learn after a while
that "a boyoott" is not an American
method and ■ will not accomplish
what ia deairecl by its projectors.
In niae oases out of ten it helps
the party against which it u directed.— Chicago Inler-Ocean.
Estimates of the gold and silver
production for the coast gives California 919,000,000, Nevada $10,-
000,000, Oregon $700,000, Washington Territory $100,000, Alaska
$400,000, Idaho $5,000,000, Montana $15,000,000, Utah $9,000,000,
Colorado $21,000,000, New Mexico
$4,000,000, Arizona $4,500,000,
Dakota $2,700,000, Northwestern
Mexico $2,000,000, and British Columbia $600,000, making a total for
tho year of $94,000,000, against
$90,000,000 for 1885. Oregon,
Washington Territory, British Columbia, Dakota and Alaska yielded
gold alone. The product of California was 80 per cent; gold and 20
per oent. silver.—Ex.
Reports from the Atlantic coast
coast represent the outlook for
American fishermen anything but
hopeful in consequence of the scarcity of bait and cod. Tho Canadian cruiser prevents the Americans
from getting bait in Canadian waters, and the herrings in American
waters nre extremely scarce. An
American fisherman lately arrived
from the Georges cod banks says he
was ten days on the banks without
seeing a fish. lt will be remembered that last summer the mackerel
kept very close to the Canadian
shores, and it looks as if the cod
would adopt the same tactics.
There is much anxiety among
American fishermen.
The Dominion alliance has passed
the following resolution: "That we
regret that neither the recent utterances of Hon. Mr. Blake nor that
of Hon. Mr. Foster on the question
of prohibition is in harmony with
the position of the-Dominion Alliance, and we strongly urge upon
our friends the desirability of carrying out the programme laid down
by the convention of September,
1885, and September, 1886, by supporting for parliamentary positions
only suoh candidates as are known
and avowed prohibitionists, and
who will do all in their power to
attain the declared objects of the
Alliance, namely: (1) The immediate enactment and thorough enforce
ment of total prohibition; (2) the
perfecting and enforcement of the
Scott Act; (3) the abolition of the
Dominion senate, or its reform in
such a way as to bring it into harmony with the moral sentiment of
the community,"
A few years ago the New York
assembly considered the question
of the taxation of corporations. It
was shown Wat the life insurance
companies, with capital and assets
of $200,000,000, paid no personal
tax whatever, the money being invested in United States bonds.
These companies were taxed on real
estate, however, at a valuation of
over $20,000,000. The fire and
marine insurance companies, with
ovor $70,000,000 of capital and assets, paid personal taxes to the
amount of $250,000, nnd on a real
estate valuation of about $1,550.-
000 paid a little ovei $40,000 in
taxes. Railroad companies having
about $140,000,000 capital paid
about $100,000 on personal property
valued at nearly $4,000,000 and
about $140,000 on real estate valued at ulinut $5,450,000. Trust
companies having nbout $11,000,-
000 capital paid it little moro than
$25,000 personal taxes, but nothing
on real estate. Other corporations
aggregating a capital over $212,
000,000 paid n personal tax of
$360,000 ou a valuation of some
$14,000,000. Non-resident corporations having over $10,000,000
aggregate capital paid $20,000 personal taxes on n valuation of $785,-
000. Seven hundred miscellaneous
corporations, with an aggregate capital of $170,000,000, pnid no taxes,
although property liable to be taxed
$4,000,000. The local taxes on
real and i personal property in Now
York oity at this time was about
$30,000,000 on about $1,100,000,-
000 of assessed valuation. Corporations owning;nearly $800,000,000
capital und personal property paid
as taxes only about $904,000, wheu
they really should pay about $15,-
000,000.—Oregonian.

gaUg $ritiah Columbian
Thursday Evening, January 31,
It is stated that the total party
vote in tho lato Ontario elections
was: Liberal, 152,548; Conservative, 142,336. This gives a Liberal
majority ot 10,212, which is said to
be the largest majority ovor gained
by any pattjf in'ahy election in tho
province. Iii this count all votes
cast tor independent candidates and
for the candidates ot labor organizations are excluded.
An Orange lodge in the county of
Essex, Ont., has passed some curious
resolutions relative to political parties. After reciting the evils of
party government the lodge calls
upon Mr. Meredith, leader of the
Ontario opposition, and his Conservative followers, to give the government a cordial support, claiming
that sueh a course would be in the
publio interest. The resolutions
further call upon StrTBlnke aria his
followers ini tjjie federal house to
adopt a similar course of action and
support the Conservative government. If the suggestions of these
Orangemen were to prevail, Canada
would speedily becomo a sort of
political paridise, where the lion
and the lamb could lie down together
with the.utmost unconcern.
lt is stated that Sir Charles Tupper has declared that his visit to
Canada is not a political one, and
that he does not intend to enter the
cabinet, as has been rumored. If
this is an honest statement of fact
it will be disappointing to the party.
Sir Charles is an old hand at political strategy, and he would make it
very lively time if he were to take
a hand in the game. But it is at
least suggestive that this party leader should be summoned from London on the ave of a general election,
when his party is entering upon one
of the most important contests ever
fought out in Canada. If Sir-Charles
does not openly participate in the
tight, we are inclined to think he
will at least give Sir John the benefit of his counsel, and quietly use
what influence,he possesses in nid ot
the parity.
Almost every person who comes
from the interior brings reports of
new quartz discoveries. Tlie extent
of our quartz fields is beyond computation. The area,' over which
rich deposits have been found is
very large, andjio one cau estimate
whit it will pan out. It is fairly
certain that this season the developments in quartz mining will be most
important* sJBIti mirfpanies hitherto operating have been hampered
by many difficulties, prominent
among which are the scarcity of
capital and ignorance respecting the
best appliances for extracting the
precious metals. We understand
that several Britisli and American
capitalists are negotiating for some
of the quartz, mines now partly
opened, arid the capital they will
bring with them will be ample for
the development of our hidden
mineral wealth.
and the revenue should be a good
deal larger also. But if thc ordinary revenue is found insufficient
for immediate needs, let us borrow
rather thau jeopardize the development of tho city. With good
judgment and careful management
a great denl should be accomplished
this year.
Mr. Henry Harding, ofToronto, writes:
My littlo daughter, 7 years of age, 1ms
been u terrible sufferer this winter from
rheumatism, boinc, for weeks confined to
iier lied, with limbs drawn up, which
could not be straightened, and Buffering
great pain iu every joint of limbs, arms
and shoulders. Tlio best of physician!
could not help her, and wo were advised
to try Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil, which
we done, and the benefit was at once
apparent; after using two bottles tho
pain left, her limbs assumed tlieir natural shape, and in two wcekB Bho was as
well au ever.   It has not returned.

In a Into issue the Toronto Mail
returns 'to the question of railway
monopoly in the Northwest, and
suggests that candidates for the
commons should be required to
pledge themselves in favor of rescinding any agreement with the C. P. 11.
that would prevent the free con
•traction of other roads. "The policy of restriction," says tho Mail,
"will not. do it in the Northwest.
Our endeavor should be to make
the country uot less attractive, but
more attractive than Dakota, Minnesota, Texas, and Kansas. These
great empires receive.the full benefit
of European immigration, whereas
the vast stream from the continent,
the Germans,-Italians and Swedes,
give our territory the go-bye on account of our position as a colony.
If we are jo have any chance with
our rivals Ve must ™ake Manitoba
at least as; free as they in the matter of railway construction, and instead of harrossing the settler afford
him every facility for getting his
head above water."

We hope ao time-will be lost by
onr eity council in arranging a programme for the season's operations.
It hu already been pointed out in
these columns that a great deal may
depend on'the way in which our
eivio butineu is' conducted this
year. It will be a year in which a
large number of people will visit
the province for the purpose of looking out suitable locations. First
impressions often determine the
whole course of a man's life, and it
it of great importance that the first
impressions of peraon. visiting this
oity ApuM be fovorable. Several
schemes of- ^improvement have been
suggested,^involving the expendi-
ture of considerable iums of money;
but we have no hesitation in repeating the opinion that it will pay us
now to devise liberal measures even
if taxation ahould seem to be high.
Tho amount of money available for
improvements thit year ought to
be contideraMy largwtban last year,

GENTLEMRN.-In oflerlnfj* myself to
the IMstrlct ot Westminster to represent
you in tho Commons this coming open-
iiiB of tho House, I do so In all sincerity,
hollevlnKllint I enn do moro for your Interests than uny of ihe gentlemen that
havo eomo forward so far. I nm a t borough
Conservative and In entire sympathy
with tho present government, who have
proved themselves tlio friend In need and
In deed to llrltlsh Columhlu.
Gentlomen, 1 have mv private fcolhujs
und opinions on most of tbo questions of
tho day, but If I go tothoHouBebyyour
sanction to represent you. I shall submit
to yonr commands nud directions which
yon can send mo asthcdlfferont questions
of tho day present themselves nnd us circumstances, liHci'ostsnndoptnionschnnKe
ou tho spot, to bo represented; for I hold
that-ingoing to parliament hy your voto
nnd pleasure, 1 go as your trusted agent
and not as your lord and master, ns some
hnvo thought and nctod accordingly when
out of your reach.
Tompcraneo, gfintlomen, Is one of tho
tiucstlons that trouble the district at the
present time. Now, gentlemen, when the
right time arrives for us to receive prohl-
hltlon non'j will he fonnd to work for that
measure with moro sincerity or energy
than I, nntl no government on earth will
he more happy fogrnnt that measure than
they; but tbe time bus not nrrived yet, I
am sorry to say, nnd I say further, that
the time for prohibition entirely rests
with tho temperance people themselves,
for as soon ns tbey prove their sincerity In
tho causo by petitioning purl lum ent to put
a tux on toa, coffee nnd other articles, and
on income if necessary, t horoby providing
revenue to curry on tbo government, then
nnd then only can they succeed In their
cause, then nnd then only cnu the government comply with their wishes. Money
Is tho root of all evil, so parsons toll us,
nnd money is tho mighty lever that is going to lift yau into Umtnhnvon of temperance yon all'so deslro und dream of.
Gentlemen, I fully rcnllzo the Importance of your selecting a good and proper
man to represent yon at Ottawa, and I also
fully realize the fuel that I at so groat distance nm working to a grent disadvantage; but, gentlomen, I trust to your Intelligence and to tho friendship of my old
friends, and feel sntlsflod you will do Justice to yourselves who nro to bo benefitted
or Injured by your selection.
In conclusion, gontk*me,n, Iundortnko
to serve you sincerely and faithfully In
all things if sent to tho Commons to represent you thero, and if you do pot I cun
stop at home, help you when I can, and
sincerely wish you muy*bo nswoll served
us I would like tp.scrvu you myself
GenUem6h;you can give me my answer
nt tho polls, and whether I go or stay I
Bhall always remain
Yours truly and sincerely,

Bole sits on the right of the leader of
Ihe opposition. Ho will be n great
addition to the debating strength of

There is a charm in Iub voice, en.
riohed as it is with the faintest tinge
of the Irish tongue, that captures and
retains the attention of the galleries.
He will be heard from frequently during the session—oftener, than Smithe

Canine Scouts.—Tho Prussian army
has a watchdog battalion which is care
fully trained for service. These canine
soldiers are intended primarily to convey intelligence from the advance posts
to the main army, and are taught to
trot to and fro with small portfolios of
dispatches around their nocks. A part
of thoir duty is to warn the outposts
of the approach of onemies during the
night, nnd they are also trained to
hunt up the wounded. Two dogs are
attached to ench company of chasseurs.

Removal.—Tho Canadian Pacifio
Telegraph Co. have decided on moving their offices to the premise, on
Columbia st. belonging to Mr. Lund
bom, and formerly occupied by S.
Trapp's tailoring establishment. Until recently the intention was to hnve
the offices in the new C. P. R. depot.
Tlii. builiiiiig, however, was found too
sniiill in iill'.iiii the necessary space.
Carpenters are at work iu Mr. Lund-
bom's promise! making the neceaiary
gltemtioiis, and it is expocted that by
Wednesday next the wirei will be
brought iu here and the new office
realty for business.
 **^	
Tihed Already.— Mr. Beaven's
oonduot at the opening has disheartened the opposition, Mr. Bole, who
aspirel to be the leader, thinks he hai
been heavily handicapped at the start
of his political career by the indiscretion of his chief. But Monday's indiscretion may hasten the day of Mr.
Beaven'i depoiition and the accession
of Mr. Bole. The present leader of
the opposition ii a tower of strength to
the friendi of good government in
thii country. He cannot lead, and
like Mr. Hobbi in " Little Lord
Faunterloy," "he'll be jiggered if
he'll fuller." It ii a pity to see Mr.
Bole occupying a subordinate position.— Colontrt.

Tho weather for the past week lias
been very pleasant, there being vory
little rain. If it would continue bo we
would Boon have fair roads. The
Postal Telegraph Co. has established
an office in Clover Valley which is now
in running order and will be in full
blaBt by the 1st of Feb. Mr. C, H.
Sherwood, the operator, a very nice
young man is well liked by the people.
Ho is from Cowichan, formerly from
California, and is an old hand at the
business. The trustees of the Clover
Valley school called for tenders for the
underdrawing of the school grounds.
There was one tender which was so
much too high that thu job was postponed for another week. Tho mail-
carrier for Langley, Clover Valley, and
Hall's Prnirie ia anything but punctuul
in leaving or arriving at the offices.
He has no set time, out he has a set
day, which sometimes he. does not
keep. He is known to come to Clover
Valley as early as 3 o'clock in the
morning for the mail, nnd arriving as
late as 11 and 12 o'olock p.m., and
sometimes not until next day, whioh is
very inconvenient for the postmaster,
antl more so for the people who have
to come 2 or 3 times for their mail.
I think the people should put in a
complaint .to the postofHco inspector
and see if there can't bu a mt hour for
the mail carrier tn receive and deliver
mails.—The oouncil let a contract f.-r

Behring Seal Fisheries.
Washington, Jan, 17. — Orders
were sent by the socretary of the
treasury some dnys ago to Sun Franoisco directing the immediate refitting
of the Bear for cruising in the waters
of Behring Sou. The rumors or insinuations made from time to time thnt
the government would uot continue
vigorously to enforce the law prohibiting the killing of fur seals in AlnBkau
waters are wholly unfounded. Thu
most energetic action directly in the
line of last year's work will bo repealed during the forthcoming season. Tlie
revenue cutter Bear will be followed
by the Corwin, aud the joint cruising
of these vessels is expected to sweep
every seul pirate from Behring Sen.
The treasury department in thia matter simply carries out thu law. The
state department is now considering
the claims of Grunt Britain as to whether or not international luw in tliia
matter hus been violated. All tho precedents and the history of Russian
control and ownership ure now under
review. Tho right nnd title of Russia
to exclusive jurisdiction over the
waters of Behring Sea from 1746 up to
1807, when ahe sold part of her claim
to tlie United States, is u very strong
one, well guarded and fortified by thu
terms of all her treaty' stipulations
with thia Government in 1824, with
Great Britain in 1825, later in 1841,
and finally with this government again
in 1867. Any statement that the state
deportment will carelessly surrender
the rights and title acquired by the
purchase of Alaska by the United
States  is   simply  irresponsible  snd
groundless.

J. 8. M'Lachlan's Insurance.
I lie Bud Life Company lias Paid ll« Policies, imt Other CompanJeH Wnnt
Proor &f Dearth.
From the Montreal Star.
There is evory likelihood of litigation concerning the payment of the
policies of assurance held on the life
of the late Mr. J. S. McLachlan. One
company, the Sun Life, has paid its
policies, but it is stated the others resist payment. It may be tlmt the
matter will be amicably settled, but
such is not tbe present appearance.
There wns, ns has beon stated, a total
of §42,130.70 insurance on his life,
plnced us follows: In the Sun Life, on
his life §7000, witli a bonus of 8130.-
70, nnd an accident policy in the same
company for §10,000, making a total
of #17,130,70. Of the accident policy
for 810,000, 85000 of it was reinsured
with tho Citizens' Insurance Company.
The Sun Life has paid the 817.130,70
to the heirs. The Citizens refuse to
pay tho Sun Life, and the hitter company will enter suit. The Sun Life
on paying the claim to the McLachlan
heirs, took from the three executors a
personal bond to refund the amount of
insurance with tt por cent, interest
compounded yearly should Mr. J. S.
McLachlan over turn up alive. The
other insurances were 811,000 in LonJ
don and Lancashire Life Co., 82000 iu
the .$tna Life, 82000 in the Dominion
Safety Fund und a partnership policy
for 810,000 iu the Accident Company
of North America. Thero was a personal accident policy in the latter company, and when J. S. McLachlan left
Montreal some time ngo, the unearned
portion of the premium wns returned
and the policy cancelled. The partnership policy for 810,000 is contested by
tlie North America Company on the
ground that Mr. J. S. McLachlan was
not a registered partner nt the time of
his death. The partnership policy
was on the lives of the Messrs. Mc-
Lachlans, Mr. Radford nnd Mr. Bro-
phy—four in all. Iu case of death by
accident of any of them tlie policy waB
payable to the survivors. When Mr.
Brophy retired from the business his
name was removed from the policy and
another pnt iu his place 61/ the company,
who never was and is not now a partner.
While the Sun Life has paid its policies, the others have expressed the desire to receive more satisfactory proofs
of death than have been furnished
them. Tho Citizens' Insurauce Company claims, first, that they were not
notified of a desire for renewal, und
second, that the premium for the second year, which began in August last,
has riot yet boon paid. The policy of
thu ..-Etna calls for the production of
the body. Mr. W. McLachlan haB
written n letter to Mr. Mocaulay, of
tho Sun Life, certifying to tlie honor*
able und libernl maimer in wjiich that
compnny hns acted with regard to tlie
claim. LT, O. McLeod, is agent for

lhe annual report of this solidly pros*

a another column. The facts revealed
in thc accounts nnd the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ccomiums which
the shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to thc resolute
manner in which the Company has declined to embark upon oxtravagnnt
methods of prucuring business, the working expenses of the to npanv bear to the
total income the vei \* small ratio of between 17 nnd 18 per eent. A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is the faot that the interest
income ib sufficient to pay tho death
claims—which in a company of the age of
the Confederation Life Ib something to be
proud of, The ass ts and liabilities are
set forth iu minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possiblo contingencies and providing for
every debt, there Ib a surplus of $282,180
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in tho last year
was §260,300. So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as the time policy of
the Company, viz:—"To keep its balance

Bake merely of increasing new business."

Cornwall Flooded.
Cornwall, Ont., Jan. 18.—There
have been several ice shovos horo this
winter, and tho wator has been unusually high in consequenco, but uot
sufficient to cause any uneasiness.
Last night about midnight, tlie ico
jammed again and tho water rose voiy
rapidly. Towards morning it floured
over the canal bank, running up the
streets to First-st., a distance of 200
yards. The alarm was given about 0
a.m., fire bells rang, and hundreds of
people were aroused and wont to work
to save the inmates of tho buildings,
whioh were flooded. Boats wore procured and were shoved
THROIIUH IHI ICY WATEH
whioh wos freezing quickly. Tho thermometer marked sovoral degrees below zero, and a terrible snowstorm
raged. The Stormont Cotton Mills,
which are situated between the canal
and the river, were completely surrounded with wator, tho boiler being
submerged and an immense amount of
machinery and stock also. At the
Canada Cotton Mill, wollen mills, and
Mack's Flour Mill, which nre in the
extreme east end of the city, tho rise
of water was a little late, and the
hands hod got all tn work. The flood
burst in the doors, and those employed
in the lower storoys had to fly for their
lives.   In the Canada Cotton Mil)
TWO JIES WEBB CAUGHT
by the water in tlie machinery room.
Curtis Deruchie and Frank Bergeron.
They went back to look after their
tools and Deruchie got out after great
exertion, but Bergeron has not boen
seen since, and it is feared he hns been
drowned. All the mills were submerged to a depth of fully fifteen feet,
the magnificent weaving room of tho
Canada Cotton Mill, the largest in
Ontario, being nt least a foot deep,
with the quantity of stock in process
of manufacture very large, and the loss
is tremendous, not to sneak of the
machinery, much of which is wrecked
by the raising of the floors. It is too
soon to estimate the damage, but it
will run up high into the thousands.
In the rear of the town there was also
flood-water backing up Fly Creek and
inundating the surrounding country
for hundreds of yards in either direction.
THE SCENES
in the flooded district were heart-rending. Many houses were under wator
above the second storey, and the unfortunate inmates, being unable to get
out, were standing knee-dcop in icy
water. Relief parties were organized,
and, with the aid of boats and lumber,
managed to extricate the people and
convey them to places of safety. Quite
a number of horses and cows were
drowned in their stables, there being
no time to • reach them. As a large
proportion of those summarily driven
from their homes are laboring peoplo,
there will be
OKEAT DISTRESS,
especially as it must be somo timo before the mills are in full running ordor
again. Steps ore being taken to organize a relief committee to attend to
the most urgent coses. The river
itself presents a magnificent sight. The
ice iB piled up in huge masses, some
towering to the height of many feet,
and glittering like diamonds in the
bright sunshine. At this hour (noon)
the water has receded, being a foot or
more lower than its highest mark, but
there is no certainty that another flood
may not occur.
The Maanllclicr Bllle.
A prominent city gunmaker, in conversation thii morning with a Globe
reporter, made somo remarks in pen
eral about military firearms and in
particular about the new Mannlichcr
rifle, of which the Britiih government
have ordered half a million. When
he wai in England last summer, he
•aid, he law the riflo and did not
think much of it, but remarked that
ho undentood it had been greatly improved lince then, " It is a German
invention," he went on to Bay, '' and I
understand that tho government of
that country are going to adopt it. I
believe that other powers are also
coniidering the advisability of doing
the ume thing. The riflo was
' sprung' upon the various countries at
the same time, so that there wuuld be
leu chance of ita action being atolen
and improved upon. Inventors are
alwaya very careful in euch matters,
and I am therefore unable to givo yuu
any accurate description of tho weapon.
I can -tell you, however, that the
Mannlicher rifle ie a repeater. I
think it will carry
NIKE   IMKTllIllllES,  .
but I imagine thnt the regulation
number will b. 7. It ii a heavy arm,
and weighs, I ihould judge, about 0$
pound., or. pound more than the
Martini-Henry. There it no doubt
that government, now realize that the
repeating rifle la the belt for the battle field. -The only requirements are
that it .hull be simple in construction,
not liabl. to get out of order, and
euily rtpiiredbyaman who has no
meohanioal knowledge of gum. In
repeating rilles it ii neceuary that the
•took •hall be heavier than in those of
single fin. You might think that tho
replacing of a certain rifle by another
wonld low* market prices, but the
fast ll th. very reverie.   When the
government of a country orders a
irg. number of new arms, as in the
Sreient oan, the gunmakera at once
•mind higher wagca. Tho reason is
that military rifles are not now iold as
in former timet The Britiah government hav. recently adopted the
plan of
DESTROYIOT ALL ARMS
when they are mpeneded. The cause
of thii if that in Zululand they en-
countered their own diicnrdod Rem-
ingtom and Snider Enfields which had
been aoid by Englishmen to firms in
Belgium, wbo in turn sent them to
Africa to be o«ed against the British
troopi. The eam. thing oeourred in
the Soudanf fh»,ohlyJ*iieiiee being
that the weapon! were in thot enso
shipped to Amorico and ncross the
ocean again to Egypt. In consequence
of this all old military rifles aro now
destroyed in Kngland, and at the proa-
ent timo wo find it impossible to purchaso them, although a few yenrs ago
wo used to buy thousands. We oxpoct

Cross-Examined.
Whnt ruined me and got me into a
lunatic asylum was this; 1 used to
havo a strong contempt for lawyors.
I thought their long cross-examinations were brainless dialogues to no
purpose. Lawyer Johnson 'had me as
a witness iu a wood case. Ill my direct testimony I had sworn truthfully
that John Hall had cut ten cords of
wood in three dayB. Then Johnson
sharpened hiB pencil and commenced
examining mo.
" Now, Mr. Perkins," he began,
" how much wood did you soy was out
by Mr. Hall?"
" Just ton cordB, sir," I  anawered,
boldly.   " I measured it."
" That's your impression ?"
" Yes, sir."
" Well, we don't want impressions,
sir. What we want is facts before
thii jury—f-o-c-t-s, sir, facta."
" The witness will please stato facts
hereafter," said the judge, while the
crimson came to my face.
" Now,   sir,"  continued  Johnson,
pointing his finger at  me, "you will
swear that it was  more  than  nine
cords ?"
" Yes,  sir.   It  was   ten   cords—
just "
" There, never  mind,'1 interrupted
Johnson.   "Now,   how    much   loss
than twelve cords wero thore ?"
" Two cords, sir."
" How do you know thore were ju.t
two cords less, sir?   Did you measure
those two cords, sir?" asked Johnson
savagely.
" No, iir, I—"
"There, that will do. You did
not measure it. Just as I expected
All guess work. Now, didn't you
swear a moment ogo that you measured this wood?''
" Yes, sir, but—"
"Stop, air! Tho jury will nolo
this discrepancy."
" Now, Sir, continued Johnson,
slowly, as he pointed his tinker almost
down my throat. " Now, sir, on your
oath, will ynu sn ear that there woro
nut ton cords ami a half ?"
" Yos, sir," T answered, meekly.
" Well, now, Mr. Perkins, I demand a atrniejit answer—a truthful
answer, air."
"T—T—Ten e-0-eprdk," I answered
hesitatingly.
" You sweat it ?"
" I-I- d-d-do."
"Now," continued Johnson, os he
smiled satirically, " do you  know tho
penalty of perjury, sir?"
" Yei, air, I think—"
" On  your oath, on your solemn
oath, with no evasion, nre you willing
to perjure    yourself     hy    solemnly
swearing   that   thoro   was more than
nine cords of wend?"
" Yei, air, I—"
Aha! Yea, sir. You are willing lo
porjoro yourself, then. Just ns I
thught (turning to the judgo); you
see, your honor, thnt this witness is
prevaricating. He is not willing to
swear lhat there were not more than
nine cordB of wood. It is infamous,
gentlemen of the jury, bucIi testimony
as this."
The jury nodded assent and smiled
sarcastically at me.
" Now," said Johnson, " I will ask
this perjured witness just one more
question. I will ask you, sir—do you
know—do you roalizo, sir, what an
•wful.awful thing it is to tell a lie ?"
" Yes, sir," I aaid, my voice trembling."
" And knowing this, you swear on,
your solemn oath  that  thero  were
about nine cords of wood?"
"No, sir, I don't do anything of—"
"Hold on, sir.   Now, how do you
know there wero just nine cords?"
" I don't know nny such thing  sir.
"Aim! You don't know, then?
Just as I expected. And yet you
swore you did know. Sworo you
measured it. Infamous 1 Oentlemen
of the jury, whnt shall we do with this
perjurer ?'
" But I-"
"Not a word sir—hu.-h! This jury
shall not bo insulted by a perjurer."
