Editor Colombian. — Having
read in a lato number of your journal the announcement from the new
management, 1 feel rejoiced to think
that at least ono independent journal hails from the coast. While it
may be a good thing to whitewash
a fence, it is feared far too much
whitewash has been wasted upon
publio men in this provinoe. Hence
a downward tendency of the press of
British Columbia, for long years
past elsewhere the press has been
recognized as' the "fourth estate,"
and upon festive occasions honored
as suoh. Upon an occasion of the
assembling of the most distinguished
men of England at Lord Palmer-
Ston's mansion, one of the plutocrats
present, that had come under the
lath of the editor of the London
Times, sneeringly referred to the
presence of the editor of that celebrated journal, remarking that an
honor had been conferred in extending the invitation to said editor;
this catching Lord Falmerston's ear,
he responded that Delany (the editor) had conferred an honor by attending upon the occasion.
Notwithstanding the labored efforts of editors in this country to
create publio opinion and elevate
politoiansto power, tbe service ia
soon forgotten, and, contrary to the
practice in England and the United
States, tbe newspaper "organs" are
left but in the cold, while expected
to defend the policy of the leaden
of the party. We believe there are
instances of this in Victoria.
Again, when some half-dozen
years since a small paper at Yale
was doing its best to draw attention
to the way Messrs. Onderdonk it Ca
were shirking the contract in hand,
the "mammoth press" of the cities
were doing tksio test, to apologize,
for the wrong-doing insteaduJ ak"K
ing in bringing about an investigation of the charges made. The government was swindled and traders
and workmen along the line defrauded, while well-paid officials wined
aud dined in the sunshine of the
parties responsible for the outrages;
and yet no protest was heard from
an independent press. Of course
it was well known during the
building of the railway that the
work was slighted. This did not
prevent "expert enginneers" certifying that ail was right; and after
Messrs. Onderdonk 4 Co. {had pocketed their gains the C. P. R. Co.
buck against accepting the road
unless a million or moro is paid over
to make good the work according to
contract. An expensive commission
is then appointed, that go over the
road like a flock of pigeons over a
town, making very little inquiry
about' the weak points, likely to
cause trouble at any time. Therefore it is not surprising that tho
gatherings of pioneers and others
take place with very little or no
respect paid to the "fourth estate."
If toasted at all it is near the dose
of the festive occasion, when the
few remaining are not always in a
fit position to reflect honor upon the
press or any praiseworthy object. If
such proceedings took place outside of this provinoe, honorable editors would have too much self respect
to respond.
Another thing observable in the
Pacific province is that members of
the press, or correspondents, are expected in travelling to puff up towns,
railways, steamers, hotels, etc., and
at the same time pay the highest
rates for accomodation of every kind.
Such is not the practice in the neighboring republic or in other civilized
countries. We regret to have to
admit that scenes like the following
occasionally crop up and cast a shadow over the "fourth estate" s
Arizona Kicker—"Correction,—
Last week we had a brief item to
the effect that Major Hornback, our
efficient registrar of deeds, had got
staving drunk, destroyed a bushol or
two of valuable papers, had two
lights, and had then gone home to
smash his cook-stove and lick his
wife. Next day Major Hornback
oalled at this office, and not only
subscribed for the A't'otrer for himself
but sent two copies to friends in the
east, paying in advance. We now
desire to correct the item of last
week. The major was not drunk.
It was simply an attack of vertigo,
to which he is subject. He was
nover drunk in his life, and a more
efficient publio officer or a kinder
husband ahd father cannot be found
on the face of this globe, We shall
make other corrections from time to
time as the victims come in and subscribe," etc., etc,
Now that a new dopartUre ia an^
nounoed in ene of our leading journals it is to be hoped tbat "press
abuses" will bo reformed.

Viotoria, June lit,—Prof. Menzies,

by several citizens to whom he laid he
had never left British Columbia and
was to be found by the' police when
they wanted him, but didn't consider
it his duty to walk to the police station
for an officer. Tbe Times says the cue
mnst be investigated and the doings of
Menzies lifted to the bottom. Thore
is strong prima facie evidence that he
was trafficking in Ohinese girls fur unmoral purposes and his pretence in
Victoria with this charge hanging over
him will nut be tolerated.
TRR DYING EMPEROR.
Berlin, June 12,9.30 p.m.—At this
hour the emperor is slightly better,
but the intense anxiety of his attendants and the people generally ia but
little diminished. The cartilage of the
epiglottis hss become permeable, allowing partioles of food to enter the air
tubes; this hu produced violent fits
of coughing and choking, neeeasiting
the abandonment of feeding through
the throat. Tbe doctors sre unable
to exactly state the causes of some of
the changes that have taken place in
the emperor's condition, but it is plain
that he is weakening very rapidly.
Dr. Mackenzie has fed his patient
through a tube inserted in the throat.
The emperor dues not seem to be aware
of his extreme dancer which all irlwut
him now realize. It is said tbat if bis
condition does not considerably improve a regency will be appointed tomorrow. The physicians now admit
that his majesty's case is almost hopeless. The Crown Prince was summoned to hia bedside at midnight! Dr.
Bardelegen will remain in constant attendance upon the patient until relieved or joined by his colleagues in the
event of the emperor's further decline.

Editor Columbian. — Aa yon are
donbtless aware a meeting of the school
board wu held Monday forenoon in tbe
council chamber, There were only three
of the board present, and one clergyman,
Rev. Mr. Jamieson. About the fine of
the board meeting it was report*! en tbe
street thst the board ot tmsteta were
going to dismiss Mr. Stramberg, master
of the high school, and it ww considered
a great hardship, so yonr correspondent
with three or four others went to the
place of meeting, and aa we entered
the secretary wss just reading the report,
after which one or two of tne audience
(twelve all told) enquired why Mn
Stramberg was desired to resign. After
aome hesitation, it came out tbat it waa
for general inefficiency; two' or three
ohildren had complained to their mammae, and ths ladies in question bad told
the trustees that if Mr. Stramberg wai
not dismissed they would not send th.tr
children to school any more.. Coosa-
quently, to appease the wrath of thoae
irate ladies, Mr. Stramberg is to be summarily diimissed or requested to resign—
tuld that hia services would ao longer be
required, whioh is tantamount to a dismissal—after seven and a half years' service, no regard being had for the irreparable injury to Mr. Stramberg's char,
aotor. Doubtless there will be some, who
do not know that gentleman, who wiU
naturally suppose he has been guilty of
some aeriona offence, and that the board
is letting him down easily; bnt from what
I can learn, Mr. 8. does not want to be
let down easy. He requires, and ongbt
to have, a fair trial, Tho board haa never up to this time had any complaints
a.ainst him; therefore justice demands
that an investigation should take place,
and there let the board prefer their
charges against him, snd give Mm an
opportunity of answering the oharge or
charges. If it is incompetency, is it not
a wonder it had not been discovered be*
fore? Mr. Standing has for many years
before he came to this country horns a
most irreproachable character.

Wednesday Evening. Jane 13. ISMS.
In our''despitcbes yesterday*1^
Was suited that our now' governor
general, Lotjl' Stanley,, of Preston,
had arrivcil at Ottawa and had been
sworn in by Ohief Justico Ritchie,
bf the supreme court, in tlie senate
chamber ofthe-Canadian house of
commons. He left soon after for
Quebec, where ho will reside, it is
said; some three months. The telegram also stated that Lord Stanley
hoped to visit British Columbia before the autumn. Since he comes
well recommended, both ns representing her gracious majesty, and on
account of his own personal and
family merits, he may bo sure of a
hearty welcome in this remote but
loyal adherent of the British crown.
Wo havo had the honor so far of receiving throe of her majesty's vice-
regents and conducting them through
our magnificent heritage, but British Columbians do not grow woary
in woll-tloing, especially when it is
remembered that three vice-regal
tours ia tho past have redounded to
the bi-iiciit of tbo province, from tbe
free advertising which the illustrious
visitors have subsequently given tho
country both in eastern Canada nnd
iu the old world, by means of word,
pen, and brush pictures. Lord Stanley, like his predecessors in the rice-
royalty, bears an irreproachable
name, and it is said that history nnd
tradition can be challenged alike in
vain to produce anything to the discredit of the noble house. But it is
not only in a negative sense that
the family havo been distinguished,
for the Stanleys havo figured prominently in the history of England
for centuries troth in the arts of
peace and of war. The present Lord
Stunley has sustained the reputation of bis bouse in every respect,
having achieved fair distinction us a
public man, and being possessed of
wide and varied knowledge, besides
a good share of tact, which he hus
already manifested on more than one
occasion. The new governor-general
is described us u tall, powerfully
built man, about five feet ten inches,
of commanding and solaier-like np
pearance, wearing a short iron-gray
beard and moustache, slightly bald,
decidedly good-looking, and with an
affable manner that cannot but
make bim popular. Ludy Stanley
iu said in the despatches to have
"looked remarkably well in her
dat k brown travelling dress." She
is understood to btr thu peer of iter
distinguished busbr.nd in many respects. How kind nf the mother
country, when we must bave these
very expensive, and witbnl agreeable, luxuries in the shape of gov-
ornors-general and governesses-general, tbat tbo most distinguished,
clever, good-looking and amiable
of tho Britisli aristocracy should
be weeded out from time to time
uud sent to these favored shores
to bloom awhile for our delectation
and edification.
Tbo election of three trustees for
the public schools in this city takes
place in a few days, and tho present
will be an opportune timo to consider the school   question  and te
draw the attention of parents and
otlnrrs interested to this important
subject.  A great many arc not even
uware tbat an act amending the
present school act, under which' provincial public schools have been conducted, was passed by the late session of our legislature.    This act
places Westminster city schools, .as
well as. othor city schools in tho
provinoe, more immediately in the
hands of the corporations of the different cities, sd that it will be necessary for us as a community interested in such matters to be well posted
as to our-new privileges and obligations. As a general thing the peoplo
ot this city have, not shown the interest they should in the oauso of
education.   The new act, or rather
amendment, throws about half the
oost of the teachers' salaries in public schools upon the oity municipalities and also makes the mayor of
each  oity chairman of the school
board.   It would bo very convenient
if more of the late acts, including
tbe amended sohool act, wore distributed in places particularly where
they apply.  Tbo mayor of this oily,
who, according to the act, is chairman  ot   the   Westminster  school
board, has not, we are told, been furnished with a copy of the act, and,
we believe, about the only copy to
be found in this city is at the land
office.   By the act the trustees are
given power with respect to high
sohools to oharge fees for tho pupils
attending such schools, nnd further
to discriminate as to who shall be
admitted free.   It is to be feaied
that this power to collect fees and to
discriminate as to those who should
he considered able or unable to pay
foes may prove a dangerous franchise to place in the hands of trus
tees, and bo a prolific source of irritation in the body social,   It would
be almost preferable that a small foo
should be charged in every case.
While tfce high school nerves a useful purpose, it is- usually only tin-
minority that can avail themselves
of its extra advantages;  and, looking at the question in this light, it is
only fair that the publio generally
•hould not lie taxed for the support
of high sohools, especially when, as
sometimes happens, tbe public or
common schools arc thereby stinted
and their efficiency impaired. While,
therefore,   we would advocate tlio
continuance of the high schools on
•sKino'equitable Irwis, wo would urge
Jt|mt. whatever else is done, the coin-
man whooli—die - real ediicfilional

protected, arid multiplied, wherever
required, und, if possible, tlieir efficiency increased, so that every ciiiid
in the land m«j_; have  within easy
reach tho facilities for obtaining it
good   sound   every-day   education,
which will fitrtdar Or her for engaging in tlie ordimry pursuits of life.
Such an education is too much overlooked in these days, unci there is a
disposition on the part of many to
strain at fitting themselves for some
of the professions, while they would
bo far better adapted to a trade of
somo sort.   Tte'result is that the
professions  are often overcrowded
with indill'erent material, and scanty
livings eked out by the Votaries,
while at tho same time a wide field
for successful labor is left partially
unoccupied.    On tbo other hand,
when a scholar manifests more than
ordinary ambition nnd capabilities,
rendering it desirable that he should
embraco in l|is studios n wider curriculum tban that afforded by the
common schools, ample facilities are
afforded by our high schools and by
the collegiate schools and universities of the Dominion and tbe neighboring republic.   It is very doubtful
if a higher education than tbat obtainable  iu  the  common   sohools
should   be furnished free, in any
case, both on the grounds that this
is liable to be dono at the expenso of
the common schools, and that, judging from eminent examples in the
past, so slight an obstacle as a small
fee, even to one least able to pay the
same, so far from proving an insurmountable barrier, is likely to act as
nn incentive to increased and successful exertion on the part of a
scholar really determined  to have
higher      educational     advantages.
Turning for a moment to tbe present system of education in vogue in
America generally—for the difit***-
ence in Canadian und American systems   is not material—it may be
stated that close thinkers and analytical writers in both countries have
come to question seriously  whether
there is much ground  for boasting
of the educational advantages of this
latter end of a century  which is
popularly credited with having made
marked progress in nearly every possible direction. An American writer
recently stated that tbe tendency of
graded schools in the States was to
suppress and destroy individuality,
to   force different minds into one
common groove nnd  to bring all to
one deiiti  level.    The  writer complained that there was too much system about the schools, thus hindering .spontaneous und natural devel
npinent, too   much'stuffing," and
too little " digesting," or thinking,
and predicted that, as a  result, in
the next generation or two the country    w ouid     produce    no    great
men   or    original     thinkers,   but
tbat all would be found on the dead
level of mediocrity.    The writer illustrated liis remarks liy citing tbe
cases of illustrious  Americans und
others as instances of a bealrbier
system of education, showing that
the overcoming of obstacles in early
youth and the necessity and opportunity for individual thought ami
effort were of more value in the acquisition of a roal education than
any amount of ill-digested stuffing.
Theso questions certainly demand
the serious consideration and impartial judgment of everyone interested
in tho important subject of education.

A 'iig cabin of two rooms was not invlt-

[ When she spoke to mo, which she did

Tbe outlaws were already placing the
boulder iu position, and wben Cap Hawkins had squeezed bis way out too rock
was rolled into the opening. With a
crunching sound it settled into place, and
Iwasn inisniierin Smoky Hole.
I itsti'iif J for the baying of the hounds,
hoping that they lind tracked mu to the
cave, hut not a sound peuet rated t lio door
of my prjspu. The flro burned briskly,
and Jsmnky Hole glowed lu tie light.of
tneula-iitigptnekuot-j. ltwas I'm work
of afewmiuittes to cut my bonds with the
knife the outlaw bail ^iveu me, and then
I took au inventory of tbe contents of tho
cavern.
The plucn bad evidently beeu fitted up
for the illicit manufacture of "mountain
dew" aud "tanglefoot" and "red rye," for
there wero the wovuout copper Mill, tho
woim, the mash tub, jugs aud flasks and
otheriijip-initusof tlm moonshiner. The
cavewnsaV'oiitthoei.-'.oof a railroad box
car, exceptt.uitthe rnnf was higher and
more niched. I jabbed my knife into
every square foot of tbe walls. They were
ot solid rock. In a vain, mad effort to roll
tliu boulilur from the entrance 1 drew tbe
blood f film my shoulder. It was all of no
use. Unless belpcame to me ftoiu without my doom waasealed.
A dull, heavy feel iftlj came over me aod
I sat down near the fue. Thoconfined air
was getting close. Suddenly, on looking
up, I was appalled at the discovery of a
new danger. The roof of the cavern was
no loimer visible. Tlie dense, black smoke
of the- pitch pine, unable to escape, was
banked it hove me liko an ominous cloud,
ever «r»w ing denser nnd blacker and descending at tjndlly, remorselessly, upon me
like a veritable shadow of Death.
Alreaily tbo asphyxiating gases were
causing my brain to whirl, I crawled to
the fire and stamped upon tbe biaziug
knots uut,il every spaHt was extinguished,
but they cor.iinued tosend]}p their stifling sim*I;e. 1 could feci it ascending, hot
and pitiless.    ...
Falling flat upon the ground Isaturated
my coat sleeve with tbe water tho outlaws
had left mc, and placing tt against my
mouth secured a few full breaths of
strained gas. But tbey gave me little
respite.   The high pressure of the atmos-
Ehere mado my veins swell nlmost to
urstlng, my hands and feet were be-
•numbed, and I was soon unable to move
a muscle.   Then I longed-for death.
Suddenly there was a loud explosion,
followed by a falling ot loose earth and
rock nnd a rush of,nir. A faint rayof
light nppeared In the corner of the cavern
over the.sill, growing broader snd stronger
as the smoko cleared nway. With lifo and
strength renewed I made my way to the
opening, where I drnnk in the fresh air
with a swelling heart and a lighter conscience than 1 bad ever hoped to possess.
Tbe explosion bad torn away somo
rough masonry with which-the moonshiners had stopped up a Assure tn the
rock. I bad. found the chimney, and it
wns my determination to-use It to, -advantage. In » moment, forgetful of pains
and bruises, I was climbing for freedom.
Soon the rocky sides of the chimney
gave plaoe to wood, and the opening
changed from flat to round. Still I
climbed on; But the openlnggrew tighter
uud tighter, like an inverted tunnel, ami
still tbo top seemed a long way off I
must bave climbed some thirty feet in all
when 1 stopped to rest, proppiug iny f-^ot
against nkiiot'-tlke projection, which suddenly breaking1 off left a hole through
which the daylight streamed. Then, for
tho first time It flashed upon me that I
wns in r hollow tree. A glance through
I he knot-holo proved Jtbifl to bo the case,
for thero was the ground ten feet below
me-tbo bench ot earth I had noticed when
the outlaws were making ready for my
incaiTT ration.
, Escape now seemed certain. The wall
of my prison was only two Inches thick.
and though tho wood wss dry and hard
from ago nnd exposure tosmokeandbent,
my knife wns soon at work enlarging tlie
knothole. As this faced the cave, I could
keepn lookout for tbo moonshiners, aud
' stop cutting at the first' auspicious noise.
Night soon set in, nnd I hoped to turn my
back ou Sleepy Cave ere the dawn of another day. But when t he sun roso my
task seemed not nearly done.' The knife
was dulled, and my strength had slowly
ebbed away.
The baying of a hound reached uie. It
was repented, and in a moment the thrilling muslo of ths pack waked again and
again tho sleeping echoes of Sleepy Cove.
Nearer und nearer It came, until a dozen
liue bloodhounds burst through the un
derhush and dashed up to the boulder at
. the ontrauoe to Smoky Hole, Thenopen--
iiigugnln, they sped on the cold trail of
tbo moonshiners.
"Dan. here Dan. down, sir!" I shouted
to the leader with all my might. The
obedient brute, recognising my voico,
dropped to the grouud. I called him to
me, and soon the entire pack wu barking
playfully at the roots of my novel prison.
Hearing t well-known signal in the
woods I answered it, and one by one five
of my friends crept cautiously up to the
cave, carbines in hand. When I spoke to
tbem from my porthole,. there Wm a
bi-uad smile on every face. An axe was
procured, and, while four of the men
guarded against* surprise, the fifth eut a
window in my jail, through which I
crawled, having been a prisoner for nearly
twenty hours,
When we reached the big poplar that
guard*-! t he pass to Sleepy Cove,! fastened
in tlie fourth notch a piece of paper bearing these words:
"Cap Hawkins, beware. The Colonel Is
on your trail. Go look tor his bones in
Smoky Hole, Ediurlke."
Just after the recent election t gentleman was waited on by t worthy deacon
who lives less than a hundred mites from
Tnsket, N. S. He wanted to seo about
putting down bribery and corruption,
and ho said: "My donr sir, we must
arise in our wrath, we must stand shoulder tn shoulder and foot to foot; we must
choke this bydra-lieaded monster, or It
Will choke us, etc." His friend didn't
think thero was any bribery, could not
believe it possible; thoiurht the deacon
must be mistaken. Hut t-iedeaconitdd;
" ir, I know it; 1 know it. I offered one
infernal scoundrel *"> to vote for our
man, und the mean, degraded ragAlwiiil
held up both hands and said he wanted
10, and could got it, too, fro■•■ the oilier
side. I tell you. sir, it is frightful! Ten
dollan t Yea, sir, it baa got to bo put
down."
Scrofiila
ts one of the most fata) scourgeB which
afflict uiuukiud. It is often inherited,
but may be tbe result of improper vac-si-
nation, mercurial poison, uncleanllneis,
and various other causes. Chronic Sores,
Dicers, Abscesses, Cancerous Humors,
and, in somo cases, Emaciation and Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood. This disease can bs
cured bythe use of Ayer's SarsapariUa.
I inherited a scrofulous condition of the
blood, which caused a derungement of my

invitation from their bretheron at
Sorrttle tu participate as an organisation
in the festivities lo bo held on July 4th

Indian War Dance.
On Sunday afternoon a number of
wost coaat Indiana gave an exhibition
and war dance on llie Indian reserve.
Tin performance commenced by n
nntnbar of warriors in war paint and
feathers paddling around the harbor,
One largo burly warrior beat the torn*

aiiitntiipnililcd by motions nf the body.
After puddling nroond for h oniiple uf
lioura tlioy proceeded to tho reserve
and began their wild fantastic dance.
The chief, arrayed In many colored
garment* wilh pniiiturnl feathers, stood
in tire centre of a circle. A large silver ring hung from his nose and- tlie
heat caused streams of red nchro to
run down hisehnpoly neck, intermingling with tho dirt whioh usunlly covers
a majority of our duBky braves. Tho
aquuivs and papooaea took part in tho
wierd drinco, whicli was kept up until

Tho following item ia token from the
Westminster news" in this morning's
issue of the A'enrs .fifvertiser: "The
water in the river ia now commencing
to fnll, und will continue to do so until
tho neat full monn, when for a couple
of days the wnter will be rnr her high
again, but nothing liko whnt it bus
been." This will be *'uews" to mnny
residents along the river who at present are rather anxious to know just
when the next high wator may bo expected. What effect the full moon is
going to have on the river, or on the
streams and rivers in the interior which
empty inlo the Frasor, our cotempor-
nry does not explain, but wo trust the
"next full moon" will not disorganize
the inland waters to the aume extent
as the last full inoon seems tn have disorganized the interior of our cotem-
porary's cranium.
Jinn nr llrllii.il Columbia.
We have reoeived from Rond, Mc-
Nally & Co., map publishers and engravers, Chicago aud New York, n new
indexed pocket map of British Columbia, "accurately locating on the map
all creeks, lalands, lakes, mountains,
rivers and tuwnB known to be in'the
province." The map, which is about
20x14 inches, is attached to, and' designed to be folded in, a neatly bound
fiexiblo-covored oblong ■ pocket-book,
about ti x'_ inches. The book

on the map, of all the natural
aud artificial features of the proyincu,
and a diagram explaining the use of the

Mr. Sternberg's dismissal from the
high school has qpused much comment
round town, and opinions both in
favor and ngainst the aotion of the
Bcln ml board havo been freely expressed.
The run of public feeling acorns to be
with Mr. Stramberg, although the
reaBiins for diaprrsing with hie services
have not heen made public. A representative of Tub Colombian called on
a member of the aohool board this
morning and enquired aa to the reason
for Mr. Strarnberg'a dismissal. The
answer was "that Mr. Strarnberg'a engagement expired nt the end of the.
present term, nnd tho board had decided to dispense with his servioes snd
engage another principal." Themcm-
bara of the board think a change would
benefit tha aclinol and claim to he. acting in the interests of the community
in the matter. Mr, Stramberg has
asked for thespeoifio reasons for his dismissal and wo think in nil fairness he
is Justly entitled to therii. Tlie general
fueling is that the cause should be plainly shown and the grounds of oomploint
ho put in possession of the public...../

It is understood that the detachment
of mounted police which has been
stationed in the Kootenay valloy since
last fall will bo withdrawn before many
weeks aro over. The mounted police
force was formed for service in the N.
W. T. proper, but there is a olauae in
the act establishing the force whioh
provides that, on the requisition of any
province tho governor-general may
send a portion of tho force there, the
province paying tho expense, as it iB
the duty of each.provincial government
to keep peace within its territory. In
tho case under consideration strong representations were received from the
British Columbia government that an
outbreak waa apprehended in the
Kootenny distiiet nmrmgChiol Isidore's
band, which wns expected to assume
the dimensions of an Indian war, and,
therefore, extending hcyond the mere
administration of law in the preaerva-
tion of order in the provinoe. Tho
provincial government at the uaino
time stated their inability to meet the
expenditure, and tho federal' government therefore on this strong representation felt that thoy ought not to be
prevented by any expenditure from
Bonding a torco into tho district to overcome tho Indians and repress the outbreak. It appears now that theso apprehensions were without any renl
foundation and therefore the force is
to bo withdrawn.   -

Chisholm vs. Henry.Woodward, K.
Carswell, and Marks & Rutlodge,
forming tlie Nicolei Milling Compnny.
Tliis was| an aotiohVhy the. Rev,. Jlr.
Chishdm to recover S50O, wbHch he
had paid on a note for that amount,
made byR,. Winters and endorsed by
Irim at tlio' roqiieBt of Mr. llutlcdge
for the accummrrdation of tho Milling
Co., as they were alleged to ho in want
of funds at the time. Chnholm endorsed tiro tinfe pin'i,Iy frota ade'sirb
to oblige tli,o .defoiislitnts and to assist
them to raise the miiney thoy required
at the Bank of British Columbia, na
they were, all, personal friends nf his.
HiB (ivitlonee mid that of Mr. Rutlodue
and of Winters conclusively proved
this.
The opinpany denied lUtlodgo'a authority tn arrange for ncoominndatibh
paper or to interfere with the financial
business nf the company, and they contended tbat as Winters had failed to
pay certain rout, the milling firm was
entitlod to collect the'rhouey from Mr.
Chisholm, ond having colloctod it lo
keep it.
Tho court held tlmt llio evidence
showed beyond disiiufo thnt the note
ondorsed by Mr. Cliislmlm was ail accommodation note, given in favor of
and to assist the Milling Co., snd that
its character in that reapeet could not
bo changed afterwards at the caprine
or will of members of tho Company
liko Mr,,Woodward, and that payment
of the note by Mr. Ohisholm should
never have beon exaeted ns it had been,
and that to refuso to refund him what
hu hnd paid was 'under the circumstances nothing short of ingratitude
and dishonosty on the part of Messrs,
Woodward Ic Onwwell. The court
added tbat Mr. Rutledge hod acted very
properly in ihe transaction in protecting Mr. Ohisholm from an unjust loss,
and that too in a matter In which the
latter had acted solely from motives of
kindliest towards Ihe defendants.
Judgment was therefore given for
the plaintiff with costs; Mr. McCiill
for plaintiff. ,

(faddy nnd Mhabb Uucoti-P were timiyecl
this morning at twc-nfy>two minutes
nnil nine leeonOn past 8 o'olock, for
tho miirdor of Hector Molieuh naar
WoUelay, N.W.T., on May 3rd, 1887.
Rncetts protested his innocence nnd
did not think he should bo hailed, us
he did not du tlie shooting. GwUly
bum up pretty well till tho hour of
execution drew nonr. Itttcelte kept
cool nil tho time since his iirrest, but
broke down tis ho stood ou the
scntt'old. His incoherent protests lo
tliu shorilf was evidence of his
extreme norvonsuosR. It was thought
daddy would mako a statement exonerating Racotte, but tho littlo murderer failod to no mo to time. About 7
o'olock tho usual stream of inquisittvo
visitors began to arrive, mid by 8 the
guard-room was crowded by parties
claiming to have passes to the scene of
execution, At 7:55 a guard of nine
red coats handed the prisoners
over to the mercies of the
sheriff and shortly after the police commissioner* from his bedroom, it is said,
ordered the whole outfit out on the
square. At 8,05 a redcoat called for
Mr. Forget, but in his absence Mr.
Gourget took from Rncette a confession. At 8:14 the prisoners got through
breakfast, immediately after which
Jack Henderson, Rial's hangman, accompanied by Parson Gregory, Gaddy's
spiritual adviser, and Fathers Graton
and Leduc, Racette's comforters, left
the oell and marched to the scaffold.
At the scaffold Guddy remained almost
lifeless and Rncette felt his unfortunate position keenly. Jack Henderson
strapped the murderers in cool shape
and while Peres Graton and Leduc
said the Lord's prayer, the murderers
were launched into eternity, They
died without a singlo struegle.
Abntlncttce and Longevltv*
Rev. Josoph Cook, iu au article in
the Chautanquan, says: " The life
assurance organizations are a pedestal
on which the doctrine of total abstinence now stands on the solidity of
commercial triumph. Only the benighted and belated student of the
signs of our times can any longer
apologize for moderate drinking us
beneficial to health. It is nnw nearly
a generation since life assurance Booie-
ties began in England to place total
abstainers in ono section and moderate
drinkers in another, and to lind the
total abstainers far superior in longevity to tho other clnss. Whon I was in
London I took much pains to ascertain
the experience of life assurance societies in this mattor, and I quote here a
statement from a letter received by me
from a secretary of one of the foremost of these organizations. During
the past sixteen years we have issued
9345 policies on the lives of non-abstainers, but we are careful to exclude
any more who are not strictly temperate, and 3396 on the lives of aMainors;
524 of the former have died, but only
91 of the latter, or less than half the
proportiouato number, which, of
course, is 100. Here is a fact attested
liy sixteen years' experience in a socie-
tyconducted by good business prudence.
Official statements show that the total
abstainer has often been paid in life
assurance societies from 10 up to 17
and 23 per cent, bonus over and above
the moderate drinker. The United
Kinedom Temperance and Goneral
Provident Institution held, Ingt May,
its 4iiih annual mooting. It bus uu
accumulated capital ot $4,000,000.
From l-StiO to 188G, inclusive, a period
of 2i years, it has had a temperance
section and a general section. Out of
every 100 in the. temperance section
expected to die, 71 died. Out of every
100 in the general section expected to
die, 97 died The temperance section,
therefore, bad au advantage of 20 per
cent ovor the general section; or, more
nearly, 53 in every 200. Similar facts
I have collected in Australia, where
life assurance societies are organized
very generally, so as to make a distinction hotwijuii total abstainers nnd
tho meiely toni pirate. Many, whose
l.ve.-i are asBiived aa total amtHiners,
were in-t always abstinent. The coif
tnis'ed fit(iin-B will grow yBt more striking when, the abstainers are such from
birth. These facta represent commercial results.
