An old fellow who iiad never before seen ti railroad train, and who
shortly after boarding « train, experienced the horrors of a collision,
dragged himself from under a heavy
box, and, calling the conductor,
said: "Oap'n I've got a-nuff. I
ljked it pretty well as long as you
was a-rnnniii, but this fool way o'
stoppin' yore machine don't strike
ine as Irein' altogether comfortable.

There are 100,000 "Bluenoses"
from the Maritime Provinces of
Oanada in this country, against 778,-
064 in the provinces themselves.
As a matter of fact there are more
Canadians from these provinces now
living in this country than the added population of tbe principal towns
of Halifax, St. John, Portland, Ohar-
lottetown and Frederictown.
Speaking of this, the St. John Telegraph says:—"These are startling
facts. How is this drain of our
population to be checked! We hare
tried building the Pacific railway
and other schemes, but without
cheoking this drain of our Maritime
life blood. Is it not time we tried
reciprocity!"—.#. Y. TrUnme. -
Tne bottom appears to be dropping out of the real estate boom
that California has been so industriously developing for some timo
past. It has been mainly a speculative movement, and those in it are
dreading the day of settlement, according to a Los Angeles special in
the New York Herald, because
there will be $45,000,000 due before
New Year's day, and there is not
the money in sight to meet the calls
that are coming. Of course as the
crash feared is one that exists mainly on paper and means more a dissipation of hopes than a destruction,
of capital, the Jilefiniit^^suty'are1
not likely to interfere with the pros
perity of the State, but none the
less they point a moral to those who
imagine that a boom business on
fictitious value is a desirable form
of steady investment. — Buffalo
Courier.
The London correspondent of Le
Monileur de la Pliotographie writes
to that journal: In the middle of the
winter which has just elapsed a
student made a leus of ice, with
which he lit the pipes of some of
the skaters on the Serpentine by
means of the solar rays—an experiment, liesays, which was first performed ill the polar regions by Mr.
Scoresby, to the great astonishment
of the sailors, for they could not
understand why the ice did not
freeze the beams of the sun. We
may remark that Prof. Tyndall at
times would set fire at the Boyal
Institution to a little heap of gunpowder with rays from tho electric
are concentrated upon powder by
means of. a lens of ice. His explanation was tha t although iceabsorbs rays
of certain wave lengths, and is'generally melted thereby, other waves it
does not absorb, and these latter
produce the heating effect at the
focus of the lens. It is wholly a
question of the r.rlative motions cf
the molecules of frozen water and
the motions of the wnves of light;
when there is discord between the
two the discordant waves pass
through the ice without absorption.
British Journal of Photography.
The recent overflow of the Nile,
it is said, destroyed abont $3,000,
000 worth of property. Tho Khedive is just now making a tour of
the county to inspect the ravages of
the Hood and to satisfy himself as
to the feasibility of the project for
the restoration of Lake Moeris, pro
posed by Mr. Cope Whitehouse, and
approved last year by the Egyptian
Minister of Public Works. This
lako, whioh is described by Herodotus ns being 450 miles in circumference anil 300 feet deep, was for centuries believed to be mythical.
Somey cars ago, however, Mr, White-
house discovered a great depression,
south-west of Cairo, and 300 feut
bolow the level of tho Nilo, which
is now botioved to have been the
nnoii'iit bed of the lake. The pre
sent projeot is to restore the canal
lending from the rivor, which is said
to have been dug by Joseph, and
thus utilize tho lake for the purpose
of receiving the Nile's surplus floods
nnd storing thein for use in the dry
season. The dnngcr from inundations would thus Ire removed and an
immense reservoir for irrigating
purposes created. It is estimated
that the cost of the work would bir
only s|5,000,000, and nn offer has
boon made to tho Egyptian Govoni-
to accomplished it by private enterprise.— Mail.

CORRESPONDENCE.
A Kejolnder.
Editor Columbian.-—I presume I ■
have the usual right of reply in a
newspaper controversy. Not that, in
this case, any is required; for I cannot
see that any attempt has been made to
contradict in any way tho statement of
facts put forward in my letter publish*
ed in your last Monday's issue. All
thut has been done consists of a most
uncalled for, und I cannot help but
think a most ungentleraanly, personal
attack upon myself without the slightest provocation on my pert Bxcuae
me if I cannot descend to personalities;
even when allowable; but the "kindly
estate agent" seems very angry with
me because he was not successful in
seizing a sum. .of money, the, low of
whioh, according to his own Showing,'"
would nut hsve fallen upon the debtor,
but upon those who had lent the sum
for a certain specific purpose. Then
he utters a number of statements that
are not the truth. Taking Us letter
seriatim, I content myself with tbe
following categorical denials: I never
considered the ohuroh bills should
hare any effect upon myself or others!
I did not go to visit my "friend" on
Sunday, and if I had gone empty-
handed, it would have been no business of his! I never saw the "friend" .
until his father brought him to see me
a few weeks before I left England In
October, 1885, and I neverjspoke to his
father before that day. I then promised him my companionship on the
journey, and that he might stay at the
farm until the spring of 1886, and no
more. Otherwise I wm not "instrumental in bringing him out in order
that ho might nave steady employment" on my farm! lam In noway
responsible whether he pays his debts
or not. 1 never said in my letter that
I had advanced him any money, and
certainly never laid claim to possessing
any charitable feelings. The "kindly
estate agent '* seems very anxious to
prove me a very charitable person, or
that I claim to be; and upon that supposition, presumes, I oannot help but
think, very impertinently, to lecture
me upon the channels in whioh I
should direct my charity. Perhaps it
will clear up matters if I confess that
I am not at all charitable. In met I
am just now possessed with very uncharitable feelings, especially with
those who presume to meddle with my
private money matters. His suggestion that I wonld possibly cbmgeptin*"
terest upon a temporary loan toa
friend in distress, adds insult to injury.
Surely if, as I am informed, this
" kindly estate agent" moves in the
best social circles in this city and Viotoria, their code of honor must be
very different to anything I have heard
of elsewhere. It is true that I hare a
" farm" in Surrey, nnd that I am not
absolutely penniless, as the agent hu
good reasons for knowing, for my title
deeds are in his custody, and I have.
had occasion to employ him in witnessing certain signatures; but toatsurely
does not make me liable for the debts
of sick or destitute acquaintances of
either sex; and estate agents should
know their business better' than "to
publish their clients affairs in this
manner. Excuse all this about myself, Mr. Editor! It is very painful to
me to be dragged before the' public In
this manner; as I oan assure you I
consider myself but a very' unimportant atom of Westminster humanity.
But if my fellow citizens wish to learn
any more of my affairs than my aient
has already divulged to them, fun
willing to plaoe them in the hands of
any threo unprejudioed citizens, and if
it can be proved ffto their satisfaction
that I am responsible for thia debt °t
994 or so, then I will pay it
In conclusion, let me reiterate my
plea to iny readers for kindly feelings
(I never asked anything more), for a
friendless boy still in prison, whose
only crimes were sickness and poverty,
and whose only ohanoe there of paying
his debts is by paying the lut debt
thnt wipes off all earthly scores, the
debt of death.   Yours truly,
Walter J. Walkir.

Fraser River salmon.
It is not expected, as a rule, that
people will believe iish stories, and
we hope the people of Winnipeg
will keep this fact in view when
they read some of the statements of
Senator Schultz. That gentleman,
us many of our readers know, spont
several weeks of this year in Brit
ish Columbia; add in a letter to the
Call he said some things which are
so far from the truth that we cannot permit them to pass unchallenged. Speaking of our fish he
■aid: "The salmon is no more to be
compared with our Manitoba and
Winnipeg whitefish than chalk is
to oheese; in fact this comparison
suite the case admirably. The salmon is dry and flavorless, whether,
you eat him fresh from tho Fraser
or after he' has been embalmed in a
tin can for a year." There are,
doubtless, many persons all the way
from Westminster to Winnipeg who
could tell the senator that he lied
about Fraser River salmon. There
U no Utter iish to be had anywhere,
and the fact that our fish merchants
have been all summer shipping tons
of salmon from this city as far east
as Montreal, Boston, and New
York, b£'express, and realizing a
fair profit, is proof enough. The
demand for British Columbia salmon
is so large in the east (although the
prices to consumers are necessarily
very high) that shippers have scarcely ever been able to keep the market fully supplied. Will Senator
Schultz be good enough to tell us
how many of his Manitoba white-
fish have ever seen Boston or New
York! Again, after describing the
various kinds of salmon found in
these waters, the senator blandly
tells us that "the humpbacks, whose
flesh is too coarse for use, are canned when the other runs have been
poor." This is the most unmitigated rot Even a Siwosh will
scarcely touch the flesh of a humpback salmon, and it will bo a genuine surprise to every British Columbian to learn that this cultus fish
is being canned for civilized use.
Dr. Schultz ought to have informed
himself better on the subject of
British Columbia salmon before he
undertook to instruct the people of
Winnipeg.
Burnt Lands.
A writer in the Colonist makes
some suggestions with respect to the
burnt lands of British Columbia
whioh are worthy of consideration.
Every one knows that forest fires
annually devastate immense regions
in this provinoe, destroying valuable
timber and burning up the decayed
vegetable matter on the surface of
the soil to such an extent as to
leave the land very poor and almost
unfit for cultivation, The writer
referred to suggests the application
of a remedy whioh has already been
productive of excellent results. It
is this: "Scatter hay seed and white
clover broadcast over the burnt
land. It need not be spread so
thickly or so carefully as if it were
a cultivated field for seeding, but
there should be care taken that it is
not thrown on bare rocks or boggy
places, The best timo to do this
work would bo when the ground is
covered by a light fall of snow, as
then- these places would show, and
besides there would be no danger of
going over the same ground twice."
The writer estimates that there are
at least 50,000 acres of burnt lands
on Vancouver Island, and there is
a larger area on the mainland.
When the grass once takes root it
will hold its own, and the fresh sod
will prevent fires from traversing
the ground again, and thus prove
an important protection to adjoining timber lands. The pasturage
afforded by these burnt lands which
have become covered with fuel will
sustain very large herds of cattlo
and sheep, and afford means of adding materially to the wealth of the
country. The writer thinks some
concerted action should be taken by
the farmers, and possibly the government would assist to the extent
of furnishing seed enough to cover
the lands. In proof nf the feasibility of the plan, it is asserted that
lands similarly circumstanced at
Alberni and Comox have been trims-
formed from barren and useless
wrMtes into fresh and valuable pas-
torn. Before a scheme of this sort
could he carried out it would be
necessary to make an arrangement
with persons owning the burnt lands.
Some of them belong to private in
dividuals and some are government
lands; but in most oases they are
practically worthless for agricultural
purposes, and there should be no
difficulty in affecting an arrangement which would secure joint action
•nd greatly promote the public interest. For some years one of the
-most important problems before the
public hu been the question of discovering a plan by whioh our valuable timber could be protected from
destructive fires. The seeding of
tbe burnt districts would not be by
Miy means a complete protection,
bnt it would do a great deal in that
w»y, because fires are very often
started in places which have already
boon burnt. We hope that agricul-
taml societies and the boards of
trade will take this matter up and
consider whether the suggestion is
not of sufficient importance to justify • piMttol test
A Creaking Hinge
Isdry and turns hard, until oil Is applied,
after which it moves easily. When tho
joints,or liiugos, uf llie body art) stiffened
aud inflamed hy lthcmimtiem, tiioy cannot ho moved without eaitsing the most
excruciating pains. Ayer's Saroaparilla,
by ita action on tho blood, relieves this
condition, and restores the joints to good
Working order.
Ayer's SarsapariUa has effected, in our
city, many most remarkable cures, in
coses which battled tho efforts of tho
most experienced physicians. Wero it
necessary, I could give tho names of
many individuals who have been cured
by taking thia medicine. In my case It
has worked wonders, relieving me ot
Rheumatism,
after being troubled with it for years. In
this, and all othor diseases arising from
impure blood, there is no remedy with
which I am acquainted, that affords such
relief as Ayor'a SarsapariUa.—R. H.
Lawrence, M. D,, Baltimore, Md.
Ayor's SarsapariUa cured me of Gout
and Rheumatism, when nothing else
would. It has eradicated every truce of
disease from my system.—R. H. Short,
Manager Hotel Belmont, Lowell, Mass.
I was, during many months, a sufferer
from chronic Rheumatism. Tho disease
afflicted me grievously, iu spite of all tho
remedies I could lind, until I commenced
using Ayer's SarsapariUa. I took several nottles of this preparation, and was
speedily restored to health.—J. Proam,

An Unitulatory Theory of udw***~"" _
* That odor ie, Uko light and sound, a
phenomenon of undulation is the belief
uf M. P. Leclerc. He urges that it ia
more reasonable to suppose that the
"rlors produced by rubbing certain
^distances—like sulphur and copper—
I'm due to tho waves set up than that the
ribbing causes matter to bo emitted
which cannot be detected except us a
smell. The garlic oiler of heated areenious
mil is a smell accompanying chemical
nrrlion the same as in many other cases
wo havo light or heat in connection with
it, 'With somewhat imperfect apparatus,
11, Leclerc claims to have produced interfere ,ce phenomena of light.
A German, who has studiously watched
the movements of honey-bees, says the
American Bee Journal, asserts that they
nre excellent storm warnera. He says
tin* on the approach of thunderstorms,
bees, otherwise gentle and harmless, become-Very irritable,^ and will at once attack any one, even their usual attendant,
approaching tlielr hives. A succession
of instances are given in which the barometer and hygrometer foretold a storm,
thu bees remaining quit, and no storm
mrcurcd; or the Instruments gave no intimation of a storm, but the bees for
houn beforo were irritable, and it came.

HUMBUC IN WINES.
How Nntlvo Brands Are Mado Foreign in
the Dealers* Collars.
"We make from 30.000,000 to 35,000,-
000 of gallons of American wine yearly,
and we do not import over 5,000,000.
Thoso figures tell whether tho wine
drunk by our people is foreign or American." So Bpoko n New York wine dealer. "By fur tlie larger part of the American wino, however," he added, "is_ not
Bold as American, but ns foreign wines.
Only a few days ago I visited the cellar of
one of the largest wine merchants in tho
city. It contained many thousands of
gallons of American wine, the casks being
marked 'St. Julien, Medoc,' etc., through
the list of prominent foreign brands,
lintel men go there and order thes.)
wines bottled and labled as foreign wine,
and Lsiiw in that cellar mnny thousands
of labels ready for uso In this way. Theso
parties take goo I care not to imitate |i
trade murk, but they give the wine tho
foreign name and sell it as foreign to their
guests. It is a strictly confidential business as between the wine merchant nnd
the hotelkooper. iho American wino is
bottled right tlioro in tbo cellar, marked
with the foi'oign label, and thru sent to
the hotel, so that tho hotel proprietor is
not put iu the power of his steward or
caterer by thu latter knowing tlu source
from which his employer receives his
wmes. Of course this does not apply to
all hotels.
"It is not difficult to see the advantage
of this," went on the wine denier, "tt
enables the hotel mnn to sell his wines at
a profit of 10J to -00 per cent, and it enables the American wine producer to
dispose of hie product, that might otherwise be left on his hands.
"But one of the most interesting deceptions," added the wine dealer, "is that
pn petroled by Boine ol the creiue de la
crein'e upon thoir confiding friends. Some
rich individual who has u coat of arms,
and coats of arms can always be got in
l-oii Ion at the right figure, will or.ler a
quantity oi American wine bottled, and
have u label with bis coat of arms stamped on Ihe bottle, Then hs confides to
his friends, as they loll over tho dinner
table, that the wine was expressly imported for his private iisa. It's an innocent sort of a fraud, nml the wino probably tastes a good deal better tor it.
"Outselling American wines for foreign
is nothing to the trick oi making spurious
wine out ol cider or fruit acid with enough
American wino lor a body. This is not
only a deception, it is morally, und ought
to be legally, a crime. Yet many thousands of gallons of such stuff nre disposed
of yearly in New York.

Dvsamitiso Trout.—From several
sources it has come to our knowledge
that parties up the river aro killing
trout withdynamite. Our information
states that great quantities are killed
in this way and are sont to this city
aud Vancouver to be disposed of. The
proper authorities should take this
matter up and make a thorough investigation and that without an hour's
unnecessary delay, otherwise all those
fine streams that are now alivo with
trout will be depopulated. The guilty
parties when arrested should be given
the full limit of tho law.

The Puck Opera Company.
A large house greeted the Opera Co.
in tho new theatre hall last night, and
the general impression was that never
hu the public of Calgary had a better
evening's enjoyment for their money.
The new hall looked very nice, and
wu quite comfortable. All the members of tho company sustained thoir
parts well, while Mr. Calburt in
Phinena Lafty fairly brought down the
house with his comic songs and grotesque faces, and in the character of the
old man the audience thought he must
hnve put his teeth in his pocket. Tho
whole performance was good, and the
crowd thoroushly onjoyod it, every
thing being of such n naturo that the
most fastidious could find nothing to
object to.—Calgary Tribune,
Stabbing Affray.
Last evening about 7:30 o'clock a
fisherman named Smith wont into the
Gem saloon and commenced using somo
very strong language which resulted in
his being ordered to leave. He wont
out of the saloon to the sidewalk and
commenced the same filthy language,
threatening to 'cut tlio bloody liver' out
of Stowart & Cash and W. H. Vianon.
Mr. Stewart went out and told him ho
had better go home, but this ho apparently had no wish to do. Aa his
language grow moro foul Mr. Stewart
took Smith by the shoulder and turning him round told him that was the
way homo and he had better go.
Smith, who had a knife in his hand,
struck Mr. Stewart two blows in the
back but only ono of which reached
the flesh, the othor simply ripping the
clothing. Stewart then let go his hold
and Smith started up the street where
he was arrested a few minutes later by
Constable Peorce. An examination of
Stewart's wound proved it not to be
serious, but Dr. McLean states that
the thrust would have been fatal but
for the thickness and quality of the
clothing.. As will be seen by our police report Smith has been sent up for
trial at the next assizes.
Possible Indian Wart
The following appears in the Victoria rimes of yestordoy: "The sequol
of tho Seabird massacre may possibly
be enacted in a day or two near tho
Seymour Narrows, when tho Salmon'
River and Fort Simpson Indians moot
on their return to tlio mirth. Information of a startling character was
gleaned to-day from one of tho latter
tribe, and the movements of the hostile factions gave an appearance of
credibility to what might otherwise
appear an unfounded rumor. It appears that a woman of tlie Salmon
River tribe, to which QuakloBkum and
tlie Sicamous prisoners charged with
tho murder uf the Seabird crew bo-
long, iB tho wife uf a Fort Simpson
Indian who was n witness against tlio
murderers. Tho Salmon River Indians beliovo this witness procured his
information from his wifo, nnd they
have sworn vengeance against him and
all his tribe. A war of extermination
hu actually been threatened, and it is
believed twenty-live or thirty of tho
Salmon River tribe who left this eity
on their return from tho hop fields are
now in ambush at Seymour Narrows
awaiting the appearance of the Fort
Simpson Indiana. The latter are
about equally ns numerous nnd were
apprised of what they might oxpect,
ana have prepared themselves with
guns and ammunition to repel any
attack. - They have also onlisted soveral Hydahs and sent tlieir women
and ohildren by ateamer to Fort Simpson. Thoy loft to-day for the north,
determined to fight if attacked, and
and confident tliey can cope with the
treacherous and vindictivo Salmon
River Indians. One or two Indians
who were spoken to wore very reticent
about the matter, but the information
u given is believed to be reliable. The
police are aware that tho livos of the
witnesses in the Seabird case will not
bo worth a brass farthing if they return to the north again, and in vindicating the law and punishing the
guilty, it is almost absolutely certain
that the risk iB incurred of other and
more horrible murders still."

About 2 o'eloek this morning Mr.
Thos. Spence, of the Olub, was awakened by a noise in Iris room, and on
turning hia oyes towards the Bpot from
whence the sound came, saw the figure
of a hand on the floor near a wardrobe
whero money nnd valuables wore kept.
Owing to hiB position in tho bed he
could not distinguiah the body, but on
making an exclamation a man jumped
up nnd rushed out of tho room, banging the door aftor him. Mr. Spence
immediately jumped out of bod and
getting alight.searched the different
rooms but could find no trace of anyone. He then opened the front door,
a short distaneo from whioh was Constable Peurco and the nightwatohman,
neither of whom had seen or heard any
ono on tho street for some time previous. The house was then searched
thoroughly and nothing unusual found
until proceeding to the cellar it was
discovered that tho doors leading to
tho room occupied by Joe, the Chinaman, were open, which was a most unusual thing as he was ordered to koep
them closed at night, Beforo going to
bed Mr. Spence had been down in the
cellar and the doors were then closed.
As Joe could not give a satisfactory
account of why the doors wero opon
Mr. Spenco gave him into the charge
of the police. Mrs. Spence, who was
tho first to. sec the form on the floor,
thinks she recognized tho jacket, in
the dim light, as that of the Chinaman
Joe. The invasion of the room was
evidently with intent to rob, and Joo
is supposed to have known that money
was kept in tho room.
 ^,A	
Police Courl.
Boforo T.O. Atkinson P. M.
Jolm Honry Smith, charged with
stabbing John Stewart' with intont to
do grevioua bodily harm.
Tho prisoner pleaded that he was
drunk when the deed wns dono, and
did not remember anything about it.
John Stewart, sworn, said: I am
tho informant in the case. Laat night
botwoon 7.30 and 8 o'clock, the prisoner was outside my place on Front
streot and was using very loud und obscene langunge. I requested him lo
go home, but he refused to do so. He
was using thteats to the effect that ho
would cut the guts out of some one.
I thentoo): hold of him and turned him
towards the way he should go home,
while I had hold of him I felt a cut iu
my left side. 1 did not see him striko
at mo. Tho clothes produced aro tho
clothes I wore at tho time. Captain
Peele looked at tho wound. Sovoral
people were standing close to us at the
time tho stabbing took place, but I do
not know thior names; after I wns
stabbed, Smith walked off; no one elae
could havo done tho stabbing. I have
know the prisoner about, 15 years; ho
is il fishorman; I do not know anything
particularly bad about him.
Hubert Partridge, sworn, said:
Last night about 7:30. 1 wns coming
down the alley way between Columbia
and Front sts. adjoining Stewart &
Cash's place. While coming down I
heard somo very foul langunge, I recognized the voice to bo thnt of the
prisoner. I went down tho streot as
far as Mrs. McNeils. I recognized
tho prisoner, he was then in front of
Stewart & Cash's. He said he would
out the liver out of the-
anyway. He used other extremely
filthy language towards 'Dutch Bill and
others, saying ho would cut
the liver out of them. 1 then saw
Stewart trying to get him to go homo.
Not wishing to meet the mnn I went
ovor to the railway track. I there met
OouuBtahle Pierce and informed him,
and Smith was arrested and searched.
It was less than*tou minutes, later 1
heard Mr. Stowart had been stabbed.
I saw the cut in his side. The coat
produced is the coat Stewart wore at
tho time. The cut iu the undershirt
is about the same size as tho cut on
his body. Tho knife produced is the
knife found on the pnsoner whon he
wns sonrched.
Dr. Donald McLean, sworn, said: 1
was called to examine Mr. "Stewart and
found a wound about threo quarters of
nn inch in length between the Ilth
and 12th ribs about 3 inches to the
left of thu spine. On applying the
coat the wound cim-espuuuB with the
smaller cut. The other articles of
clothing aro'cut in tho same place, the
ono blow evidently doing tho whole
thing. The wound is in a vital part of.
the body and was it not for the good
quality of the coat,, the blow would
have killed him. Tho knife produced
would cause the wound.
Constable Pierce, sworn testified to
arresting the prisoner.
His Honor remanded the prisoner
for trial at the next assises.
Ah Joo, a chinaman, eharged with be
ing in his masters bedroom at 2 o'olock
in the morning with intent to commit a
felony.
Tho prisoner pleaded not guilty.
Mrs. Spence, sworn, said: Early
this morning I was aroused from iny
sleep, by a noise, and looking up 1 saw
a man in the room in a stooping posture and appeared to bo groping for
something. He immediately ran off
still in a stooping position. Mr-
Spence immediately got up and follow;
ed him. I could seethe dress plainly;
the jacket worn by the prisoner is
similiar to tho one on the person who
was in the room. 1 could see he was
a chinaman; his queue was twisted
round his head. The room was partially lighted. I told my husband it
was Joe; has been working for us about
G weeks, lie slept in tho cellar. I missed
nothing from tho room afterwards;
receipts of tho dny were always put iu
a small cnsli box which wns kept in
tho room; I think the prisoner know
we kept money in the room.
Thomas  Spence,   sworn,   said:   I
know tho prisoner ho is in my employ.
About 2 o'elook this morning I was
awakened from my sleep and saw the
figure of a hand moving on tiio floor
towards the wardrobe I called out
"Who is there?" and the first thing I
know a figure rushed out of the room
and **banged the door after him. I
jumped up and got a light. On examining tho front doors I found thorn
both locked. I looked outside, nud
Constable Pierce wus there. I asked
him if he lind seen anyone running
away; he said he hnd not. I naked
him in to examine the promises with
mc. \Vo> soarchod all over tho house
and thon wont down to tho cellnr,
when, to my surprise, 1 saw the
door, which divides the cellnr from
tho part occupied by Joe, open.
As ho always bolts this door before going to bed, I saiij, Joe
is tho man. Tho officers then
roused him from bed and asked
him to explain how tho door wns
open; ho said ho fastened it before
going to bed, and when we told him
no one could open it but himself ho
did not know what to say. I then
gave him iu charge, as it was impossible for anyone to opon the door but
himself. All tho doors leading from
whero tho prisoner slept to my bedroom wero'open. I did not examine
the windows; thoy aro 8 foet from tho
ground. Joo was undressed when I
wont into the room.
His Honor, after hearing the evt-
donce of Constable Pierco, committed
Ah Joe for trial.
