VOLTJME 1
NEW  WESTMINSTER, B. C„ TUESDAY EVENING, AtGUST Its', 1886.
NUMBER 9
gnilfiritiek Colunjliittn
T»ess-»« Emina, Angst ,t__*.
It is stated ond generally be-
' lieved tbat there will be a general
election for the Canadian house of
commons this fall. In the east, the
two parties have been for many
months preparing for this event.
The voters' list has been watched
with jealous care, and every stratagem has been made use of to place
on ns many names as possible of
persons who would vote right During the summer Mr. Blake and Sir
Richard Cartwright and some other
prominent men among the Liberals
have been making political speeches
at several places, and these speeches
have been widely circulated through-
'out the. oountry.- . It is just as well
that we,ill British Columbia should
be prepared for whatever political
event is coming.
And. now it is the cashier of the
American Baptist publication society who has embezzled $60,000 of
the funds of his trust. The chief
reason why men, in spite of churches
and educational opportunities, are
tempted to trifle with the devil's
work is because their piety and intelligence are ohoked to death by
the foul atmosphere of false philosophy with which society surrounds
the boy from tlie cradle. In the
very same breath that our boys are
, told to study for distinction, at
school, to surround themselves with
all the respectabilities of church
and state, they are taught with far
more sincerity and earnestness that
"wealth is the chief end of life; the
one thing needful for happiness, the
criterion and measure of success and
attainment." It is a pity that this
false philosophy of success could not
be replaced; by the Old-fashioned
philosophy of success that was luid
down by the great lawyer, the late
Judge Jeremiah S. Black of Fcnnsyl-
, vania, who a few months before his
i death said to one of his friends:
"When I ain gone I want you to be
able to say of mo as was said of
Samuel when ho left the judgeship:
Whose ox have I taken! or whose ass
have I taken? or whom have I defraud-
, ed? Whom have I oppressed? or of
whose hand have 1. received any bribe to
blind mine oyes therewith? and I will
restore it to you. And tbey said, Thou
hast not defrauded us, nor oppressed us,
neither bast thou taken aught of any
man's haml."
The ambition of this great .lawyer
was a very noble one. He wiu
anxious, not that he should: be
spoken of as an able lawyer and
brilliant advocate, as a man of caustic wit, as a mnn who rolled up
more riches than it was safo for his
children to inherit; he was not anxious about his reputation for intense
intellectuality, bat he was nobly
anxious that when he was borno tithe grave no man should be ablo
truthfully to say of him that he had
ever been a tyrant, a thief, a swindler or a bribe taker. . It was not
enough for Jerry Black to be known
as a successful man, a i harp man;
he was above all anxious that be
should- go down to his grave with
his moral honor uu&ti'ined; Aat no
man should say of him1 that he ever
mocked eternal justice or trampled
ruthlessly on the poor, the ignorant,
or any other form of human wretchedness or weakness. He wanted to
Iw known as a just man, whom no
opportunity could tempt to be false
to the golden rule, the ten coimnaiid-
luenta, nr the Hermon on tlie mount.
What a rebuke to the greedy knaves
and commercial swindlers WaB the
anxiety of this great man to be
spoken of after death as a man
without greed or guile of any sort,
us a man nf ugly, undimmed honesty and consistent humanity, who
comprehended that forbearance of
power was the test of true nobility
of character! The great lawyer wna
a success, even in the vulgar sense
of the word, but to himself lie wus
not a succosb, but a miserable failure, unless his friend could say of
him thut he never robbed, or cheated, or oppressed the meanest of his
fellow-men, or took a bribe to blind
his eyes to justice. For his monument Black s friends could frame no
more fitting epitaph than this last
wish of his that when in his grave
he should be spoken of as one who
loved Ood and man too well to steal,
cheat, tyrnnize, or sell justice. The
simple desire to do right and take
decejit poverty or riohes with equanimity, hud it contented the soul of
the cashier of tho American Baptist
publication society, would have
made hiin really a successful matt,
for he would have had the spiritual
substance of success, his full duty
fairly done, instead of the deceitful
shadow of scoundrelism, which,
whether successful «r not in -Hitting
ill-gotten gains, always leaves the
man at last a miserable failure.-—

TheC. P. R. Extension.
Not only the C. P. K. syndicate
nnd the persons by whom the injunctions were obtained, but tlie
people of this city and of Vancouver are greatly interested in tbe result of tbo hearing to-day before
the divisional court nt Victoria.
Theso injunctions were obtained for
the purpose of preventing the extension 'of the roud from Port Moody
to Vancouver, because the holders
of property through which this extension proponed to pass deemed the
sums offered for right of way ridiculously small. And it must be said
in truth that the sums were small,
and in some oases not at nil approaching the value of the property.
Having failed to arrive at a satisfactory settlement with the owners
of property, the syndicato proceeded under its charter to expropriate
the lands. But the property, owners
object, aud plead that the syndicate's charter does not give it authority to extend the road beyond
Port Moody, which has always been
declared to be the government terminus, and tbat, therefore, it cannot
expropriate lands for the purpose of
such an extension. This is the
point at issue before the divisional
court, or .court of review, now sitting
in Victoriu. Two judgments have
already been given on the point.
Mr. .1 ustice Gray has declared thnt
tlie company 8 charter is sufficient
to cover the extension or branch to
Vancouver, and Chief Justice Begbie has declared that it is not. The
decision of the judges before whom
an appeal is taken will be final on
that point so fur as the courts of
British Columbiu are concerned. Ill
all probability the losing party will
appeal from tbat judgment lo tlie
supreme court of Canada. So much
money has beeu already spent in tbe
matter, that it will go to the highest
court But the decision of our own
court of appeal will exercise an important influence on the question.
If it goes against the property
owneis, the syndicate will be confirmed in its determination to lake
the road down Burrard Inlet: if it
goes against the syndicate, and there
is no prospect of an amicable settlement, possibly tbe syndicate may
adopt some other route by which to
reach the Vancou\er terminus. It
-is this possibility which gives tbe
question a special interest for thc
people of this city and Vancouver,
and Port Moody nlso. If the syndicate decides to abandon tlie inlet
extension, nnd carry the Now Westminster branch through tq Vancouver, it is. freely hinted that the
rpad between tbe junction and Port
Moody will be closed, and all traffic
will come this way. The change
would also place this city on the
main line, nnd this, we have always
held, wOuld be a decided.advantage.
There is the other route by way of
Burnaby Lake; but in view of the
fact that the branch has to be built
and operated to this city in any case,
the syndicate would hardly undertake a ■ line via Burnaby Lake. It
would. surely be much cheaper and
better to extend, the New AVestmin-
ster line. If the courts determine
that the syndicate cannot extend its
line beyond Port Moody under the
present charter, it may be doubted
whether a charter could be prooured
except on certain conditions which
the syndicate would hardly accept.
The federal government has pub
licly proclaimed Port Moody the terminus, and on the strength of this
declaration a great many people have
invested large sums of money in
property there. Having handed tbe
road over to the syndicate, the government could not be fairly held
responsible for the syndicate's act in
making Vancouver its terminus.
The syndicate bus a right to Hx the
terminus wherever it chooses. But
if it is found impossible to change
the terminus without obtaining a
charter from the very government
upon the strength of whose official
declarations the property owners at
Port Moody invested their money,
we do not see how a charter could
lie granted unless it was made an
express condition that these property
owners should lie indemnilied for
the losses that would result to their
investments. We havo always regarded it as a hardship that the
people of Port Moody, many of
whom havo invested money iu good
faith at thc official terminus, should
have been forced, through no fault
of their own, to liear such serious
losses; and it would be impossible
■ for the government to give un unconditional official sanction to a
change in the terminus without
stultifying itself.

& Lyman's Vegetable Discovery anil Dys-

Another  Mysterious Murder.
By Telegraph.

yesterday morning, having liis skull
badly fractured. A coroner's jury returned a verdict of murdered by the
hands of some party or parties unknown.
William Cunningham's Death.—
It appears that tlio -death of Mr. Wm.
Cunnjpghani, of Balom, Oregon, brother to Mr. Jnmes Cunningham of
New Westminster, waH caused by a
scantling falling on liis head while assisting in removing an awning from
the front of his building. He did not
recover consciousness and died on
Wednesday afternoon last, just four
hours after tho accident happened.
He wns buried on Thursday afternoon,
the funeral services wero conducted Ivy
tlie Rev. Dr, Harrington and Mr. M.
C. Ware. His brother did not reach
Salem in time for the funeral. Deceased was well known in thiB province
as a man possessed of honest*]- and
probity and thoroughly upright in all
his dealings. He leaves a wife nnd
young family to mourn his very sudden death.—Times.
Sir John's Arrival.
Mayor Dickinson received tho following telegram from Sir John Macdonald's private secretary this afternoon: "Sir John Macdonald will arrive
at New Westminster nboui il p. in.
Friday, aud will remain there until 4
p. m. Satui-day.-'"
This is very disappointing. It was
expected thnt Sir John would certainly
remain two or three days at least in
the city, and arrangements had been
made for a pic-nic and other demonstrations. In view of his very brief
stay these will liavo to be abandoned.

The Great llalloon Voyage.
M. L'HQSTE'8 ACCOUNT OF THC TUP.
London, July 31. — M. L'Hoste, the
famous Froncli aeronaut, hns buen all
day the lion of the hour, more than
Salisbury. Ho and Mr. Joseph Man-
got, a young astronomer of Paris, have
mode from Cherbourg to Tottenham,
a suburb of Northern London, nuai-
t-he Alexandria Palace, the most successful balloon voyage uver made, and
of a character often predicted, but
never hefore realized. The lurouattt
had determined that hu could construct
n balloon which could bu directed near
the point of intended arrival, or bu
used to drop torpedoes. His balloon,
in viow of the latter idea, was named
the "Torpillour. ' It was fitted with
gear of L'Hoste's iu volition. Roth
voyageunt wore the uniforms of thu
French navy, blue, braided with wild,
and tho tricolor overhung tho basket.
Having made the customary preparations for inflation and Imllastmg they
left Cherbourg in the midst of thu
shouts of a vast concourse about sun-
sot Little apprehension was felt
there because of the confidence in L'Hoste, wlm is secretary of I,'Academic
D'Aerostation Moteorologiqtiu du
France, and who hud onco before
crossed the channel in bis balloon.
INTERVIEW WITH THE AKUON.UT.
Tho substance of hii) story was thus
told by him on being interviewed; "I
intended and hoped to arrive at Fins
bury-square  at  the top of the street
running northward from the Bank of
'• England. I descended, however, about
: fivo miles north of it, in about twelve
I hours' journey, coining north-eastward
j in a pretty straight line course.   My
i main  object  was,   however,  not so
j much an experiment to prove power or
; accuracy  in steering as to prove the
'■ possibility to maintain an equable alti- j
tude above the waves in trussing the ■
channel or any ocean, and particularly
to  test  the possibility of keeping iu
direct view vessels over which to drop
torpedoes.    My rig for preserving my
altitude, which I   tried to adjust at
about forty-eight metres or 150 feet,
was  a Jtattcux  or   'coaxor' pipe, by
which on reaching tiio waves we could
draw up. water to be used for ballast,
counteracting   the   condensation   or
rarefaction  of  gas,   which  so  often
obliges balloons to shoot upward. This
flattens effect, making the balloon, as
it  were, a  captive, i   modified by a
small sail.   Altogether it worked excellently until   tho   Isle of Wight was
reached, whon  the   balloon   shot up;
but it was  used again in the Solent,
aud at this point, and near tho Isle of
Wight, we successfully dropped tiny
torpedoes over the smaller craft thereabouts-   Please  remember  that land
ballast  once  over is gone, but water
ballast is within control.
TUE AIR CURRENT.*:.
I cannot claim success in steering
fur currents favorablo to tho point of
destination. I sailed over St. Paul's
dome, wanting to drop in the artillery
ground not far off, near Finsbury,
from where I made my ascent when
celebrating the centenary of the first
balloon voyage, but was compelled to
continue a few miles northward. Thia
water ballast was first suggested by the
celebrated Gower."
The balloon came down quietly
about half-past six o'clock in tho
morning at a point in tho marshes a
few hundred yards distant from Tottenham station, ou the Great Eastern
railway. A rush was made toward it,
some bathers not waiting to dress
themselves as they were running up
the banks of the River Lea. The car
dropped into what is known as the
" black ditch," and if it had remained
there the aeronauts would have found
themselves in a place far from comfortable. Ballast was thrown out and
the balloon rose, but not many feet.
Gus was let out and the balloon again
came down. Caught by a gust of
wind, however, it wus carried toward
the river, and more sand bags were
emptied. Onco more the balloon rose
and nearly came iu contact with the
telegraph wires on poles by the Bide of
the river, and which were escaped by
a rapid discharge of sand. The next
attempt to descend was perfectly successful, the car alighting on a piece of
marsh free from any obstruction.
PAKIS EXCITED.
I    The  Gamois  says:   "The voyage
| which   hus   beeu so   happily   accom-
1 pUshed is certain to make a greut noise
i in  the scientific world.   M.   l'Hoste
■ had  with him miniature  torpedoes,
which ho dropped, successfully on tho
forts and arsenals over which the balloon passed in approaching the shore.
Oiic can easily divine whnt impression
will he produced  in  England by this
novel experience.   Its success and the
nature  uf the  results possible  has
something about it calculated to be
disquieting."

The Confederation Lift.
The annual report of this solidly prosperous Canadian institution will be found
in another column. The facts revealed
in the accounts and the Directors' report
thoroughly justify the ecomiums which
thc shareholders present bestowed upon
the management. Thanks to the resolute
manner iu which the Company has declined to embark- upon extravagant
methods of procuring business, the working expenses of the company bear to the
total income the very small ratio of between 17 and 18 per cent, A point attesting the soundness of the finances of
the Company is thc fact that the interest
income is sufficient to pay the death
claims—which in a company of the age of
tlu- Confederation Life is something to be
proud of. The assets aud liabilities are
set forth Iu minute detail, and the tables
show that, after making allowance for all
possible contingencies and providing for
every debt, there is a surplus of §282,1!)!)
over liabilities and capital combined.
The increase in the assets in the last year
was .S2(i0,3!l0. .So much for what can be
done by rigid adherence to what the
President defined as thc true policy of
thc Company, viz:—"To keep its balance
sheet right and avoid unnecessary, unwise, or extravagant expenditure for the
sake merely of increasing new biisiuess."

Wilms Bronze Monuments.-White
Bronze is a comparatively new substance,
and hns come into large use, rapidly, for
special purposes in this country.    It lias
been found to be su welt adapted for statuary and monuments, that companies
hnve been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, nnd St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
aud styles,   1< rom experiments made by
these companies, it has been found that
the material will stand exposure for an
indefinite period—it is practically hide* j
striictible.   White   Bronze   being noil* j
corrosive and unchangeable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
nnd superior to copper or antique bronze, '
which throws off a verdigris. The inoiiu*
incuts are east from refilled zinc, and arc i
given thdr sparkling appearance by the I
sand blast, sand being blown ngainst the
work under a high pressure of steam, '
which cuts the surface, but does uot ad. '
here to it.   A thin film of oxide which
forms on this bronze is indisti-uctible by
the elements: it cannot be dissolved by j
water, and air cannot penetrate it, nl* j

London, Aug. 8.—Tlio National
Liberal Federation, an outgrowth of
Chamberlain's caucus, has issued a
manifesto saying: " Although the result of the elections has not been completely satisfactory, uur position is encouraging, the supporters of half mous-
ures being the smallest gruup in Pur*
lianient. Gladstone has secured the
support of a vast majority of liberals
and liberal organizations, As far as
the Federation is concerned, the result
of an appeal tu the country iB completely to justify the course taken by
its counsel. Greatly as wo regret our
losses, the manner in which the Lib- I
erals responded tu Mr. Gladstone's ap- ;
peal proves that the Federation repre-
Hunts the opinion of the Liberal party.
That party being committed to effect- j
ing a union between England and Ire-
land, will never abandon that object
until the goal has been reached. Progress is not possible in Liberal work
until that has been settled. It is the
imperative duty of Liberals to obtain
at the earliest possible moment an explicit statement of the Tory policy in
regard to Ireland. Gladstone's policy
still lives, and its ultimate triumph is
assured.
Dimus, Aug. 8,—In  response to
urgent telegrams received from Belfast
this evening, 400 infantry  soldiers, I
sume  of  them   being on furloughs, j
were summoned by bugle in the street ;
and were despatched in haste to Bel-
fust by special train.   A body uf 200 I
dragoons and infantry will  leave for I
Belfast at 4 o'clock to-morrow   morn- i
ing.   The police at Belfast will be sup- j
ported by military.
Belfast, Aug. 8.—Excitement hero
is  unabated.   This morniug  rioting j
broke out in the old lodge road, and
the police were obliged tu lire in order {
to disperse the crowd.   This afternoon
rioting was renewed with  great vio-
lenee in the Old Lodge, Grosvenor and
Springfield.  roads.   Many     persons
with gunshot wounds have been sent tu
the hospital.   Additional troops havo j
been telegraphed for.   The aspect  of
affairs is serious.   The mayor presided
to-day at n three-hours meeting of the
executive    commission.    Thero   are
rumors current of many fatalities, but .
it is difficult   lu   obtain  accurate ac- '
counts.     A    panio    is   seizing   the
peaceable inhabitants.
Goshen, Aug. 8.—The Emperor
Francis Joseph warmly welcomed the j
Emperor William on his arrival here
to-day, twice embracing the German
emperor,, The mouarchs remain here
for conference.
Belfast, Aug. 8 (midnight).—The
rioting shows no signs of abatement.
The total number of persons dead so
far is believed to be six; the number
of wounded is unknown, but will probably reach 200. The inspector-general arrived with a smalt escort, but
was surrounded by the mob in Lud-^e
street and waB obliged to run for his
life.
London, Aug. 8,—The Chronicle's
Rome correspondent telegraphs that
the Pope had two fainting spells on
Saturday. He is much exhausted, but
continues to perform his usual duties.
His physicians have no fears of fatal
results.
The government has decided to reinforce the fleet on the American station, so as to allow of more vessels being employed in the protection of Canadian fisheries. The corvettesPylades
and Tourmaline will leave for thai station shortly.
Beleast, Aug. 9.—During the rioting which occurred here from Saturday evening to an early hour this
morning, 11 persons wero killed and
130 seriously wounded. The majority
of injured persons have shot wounds.
Rioting was renewed to-day and a
tierce encounter took place between
soldiers and the mob in which a number uf the latter were wounded. Reinforcements of troops to the number
of 1200 arrived at Belfast to-day.
Belfast (noon)*Aug. 9.— Attempts
to stop the rioting arc unsuccessful,
and the violence is increasing. Thirty
rioters have been wounded. The police keep up a merciless firo upun the
mob.
Panama, Aug. O.—The Costa Itican
congress has granted concessions to
Messrs. Orgoyer & March to establish
a line of steamers betweon San Francisco and Panania, calling at Central
American ports, to be call the ''Spanish Central Amorican Line." lt pro-
puses, it is said, to have seven steam-
ore and be ready by October. Diplomatic agents and government employees are to travel free, and four first-
class passages lietween San Francisco
and Panama and vice versa are to be
placed at the disposal of the guvernment.
London, Aug. 0.—Gladstone, who
was returned to the house of commons
for both Midlothian and Loith, Scot,
land, has chosen to sit for the former
district.
Belfast, Aug. O.—The city, owing
to the wreck aud ruin of houses, presents a deplorable aspect. Its appearance is similar to that of Paris after
; the Commune. It jb feared that numerous deaths resulting from the riots
liave taken placo which will never be
heard of. Tho hospitals are taxed to
their utmost to accommodate the groat
number of wounded persons in need of
attendance, A painful feature of tho
' *• riots is the number of children wounded; yesterday a boy waa shot while returning from Sunday school. To-day
a little girl was shot on the streets and
it is thought fatally wounded. She
was carried away apparently lifeless.
Train loads of troops are constantly arriving.     _— _
Nkw York, Aug. 9.—A Montroid
special says tho Canadian Pacific Telegraph Company laid a cable across the
deep water channel of the St. Lawrence river yesterday to St. Helen's
[aland, and from thenco by means'of
wires strung on four or five large poles
' on thpj^utn sliore of the river ubtain-
ed connection with New York. Congratulations were exchanged over the
new connection, witli the ofllce of the
. Mackay * Bennett Cable Company.
Ottawa, Aug. 9.—Much interest is
felt here in Lord Lansdowne's visit to
England. It is known it is made with
regard tu the fisheries difficulty. Canada is anxiuus for a settlement of the
question. She now has to pay over
§1,000,000 duty into the U.S. treasury
that she had not to pay before, and
since the abrogation of the treaty there
has been a falling off of $1,000,000 in
the value of fish shipped to the U.S.
Lord Lansdowne will present these
facts to the British govemment and
urge an immediate settlement of the
difficulty bythe appointment of a commission.
Milwaukee,, Aug. 9.—Late despatches from Mai-quett, Mich., say the
city is in danger of destruction by forest
tiros which make the air densely
smoky, Tho intro-glycei'hie works of
the Lake Superior Powder Company
are surrounded by lire-men who are
fighting the firo.
Beleast, Aug. 9.--The aspect of
affairs was so threatening to-day that
at noon tho authorities ordered all
taverns in tho city tu be closed till tomorrow evening. Groups of men are
assembled everywhere excitedly discussing the situation. The military
early this morning dispersed several
rival mobs at the point of the bayonet.
San Francisco, Aug. 9.—Prince
Fushimi, brother of tho Mikado of
Japan, has arrived from the east. He
is a young man 30 years of age, and is
making n tour round the world.
San Francisco, Aug. 9.—The str.
San Bios, which arrived yosterday
from Panama, brings nows of the
wreck of the ship Pondicherry June
18, tiff Valpaviso, with all on board,
numbering 14 persons. The cargo of
lumber is insured in thjs city.
London, Aug. 9.—Although the
Spanish treaty of commerce will come
into fotce Aug. 15th, the home office
has been informed from New York
that a number of dynamiters have left
the United States for the purpose uf
making attacks on thc English government. The conspirators, report says,
will go from New York to Paris, and
there await a favorable opportunity for
entering England. The home offico
has notified the French government.
Sumo home officials declare that they
believe tho whole enterprise, as reported from New York, is merely a renewal of O'Donovan Rossa's demonstration to raise money.
A motion was made befure tho court
of queen's bench to-day to quash the
verdict of the sheriff's jury in the suit
of Cyrus \Y. Field against James Gordon Bennett for libel, in which the
latter was ordered to pay 825,000 dam-
agos and costs. The grounds on which
the motion is asked are tbat the court
has no jurisdiction in the case, both
parties to the suit being foreigners mid
having no domicile in England.
Rome, Aug. 9.—Cholera returns
since last reports show in Barcelora
140 uew cases and 56 deaths; Brin-
disi, 11 new cases and 0 deaths; Bologna, 80 new cases and 50 deaths;
Ravena, 10 uew cases aud o deaths;
Venice, 0 new cases and 10 deaths;
elsewhere, 51 new cases and 12 deaths.
London, Aug. 9.—The government
has adopted the proposal of the royal
commission on tho depression in trade
to appoint a general commission to examine the currency question.

The Srnoi'LE Case.—A despatch
from Ottawa, dated tho Snd inst,,
says: Mr. A. F. Mclntyre made application to Mr. Justice Henry, of the
supreme court, in chambers to-day, for
an order for the immediate release of
Robert E. Sproule, who is now in
gaol at Victoria^ B, C, under sentence
of death for murder. Mr. Mclntyre
argued that as the sheriff of Victoria
had refused to obey a writ of habeas
corpus, it waB the duty of the judge to
order the discharge of the prisoner
without having him brought before the
court. Mr. Burbridge- deputy minister, appeared for the attorney general
of British Columbia and asked for an
adjournment for a week, when, he said,
a motion would be made to set aside
tho writ of habeas corpus. The judgo
refused to grant a postponement, saying that he did uot intend to allow tho
British Columbia authorities to tritlo
with lum, as they had evidently beeu
trying to do, Mr. Burbridge said that I
he had been instructed to object to tho
motion on the following grounds:--
First, tlio motion for hearing was
made before the writ was returned;
second, because the writ of habeas !
corpus should have been directed to
the i/soler, who was proper custodian
of the aeeused, and uot the sherill';
third, no funds were provided the
sheriff for the conveyance of the pris-
finer as directed in the writ. He was
of opinion that a postponement of lht
hearing should bo allowed. Mr. Mu
lu tyro said that inasmuch as the accused was to be executed on Frk! iy
next, he thought that it would be an
unheard-of proceeding to grant a postponement of the case for a weok. Mr.
Justice Henry said there could be no
postponement; ample time had been
afforded the officials of British Columbia to be present in perron or to have
engaged counsel to represent them as
tbey desired. Mr. Mclntyre then
spoke at length in support of his motion for an immediate discharge. Mr.
Burbridge roplied, contending that
the prisoner cuuld not -be discharged
until he was brought before the court
in person, Mr. Justice Henry said he
would give judgment on the motion on
Thursday.
