The Chicago Mail has learned
that an enterprising mnn in Chicago proposos to procure tin boxes
just large enough to hold an ordinary sandwich, picco of pie, a flask of
coll'ee and a Ohinese napkin. He
will Sll a light wagon with them
and at a certain hour—the lunch
hour—will deliver to his patrons a
box and contents for the sum of 15
cents. He says his scheme is work-
iug well, that he has secured over 300
subscribers on State and Dearborn
streets. As repidly as his business
increases he will put on more
wagons.
The Ceylon pearl fishery promises
to be unusually successful this season. So does also the mother-of-
pearl harvest in the Red Sea.
These latter fisheries extend the
whole length of the Red Sea, but
are most productive near Suakim
and Massowah. Some 300 boats
are employed, mainly belonging to
Zobeid Bedouins, with black slave
crews, and the men live on board
nearly the whole year, rarely heing
at home more than a month, They
fish off reefs in the calm weather,
and can see the shells at a depth of
from seven to fifteen fathoms, using
a primitive telescope formed from
an empty petroleum tin, with the
bottom knocked out and glass let
in. Fatal accidents are unknown.
The shells are sold by auction at
Jeddah, Suakim and Massowah, and
the bulk go to Trieste, a few coming
to Havre and London. The finest
specimens are Bent to Bethlehem,
where they are engraved and sold to
the pilgrims.—Ex.
Between Cashmere and Ceylon,
according to an authentic and most
recent official statement, which I
hold in my hand, there are twenty-
one millions of widows, and half of
these were never wives. Even
under the rule of a christian empress. Paganism makes the condition of India yet so desolate that
it is a common remark among the
Hindus that the old form of immolation by fire was preferable as a
fate for a young woman, or even if
an old one, than widowhood, Distressing beyond our conception must
be the life to which Suttee is a
blessing; and yet suicides are occur
ing in India almost every week,
prompted only by the terrible sufferings incident to enforced widowhood. Who can remedy theso terrible mischiefs endured by women
in Asia except female medical missionaries! They are wanted all
through India. They are wanted
in large numbers. They are wanted
for Zenana work, for teaching, for
all kinds of instruction in mission
schools and secular establishments
of various kinds. An angel from
heaven itself, as has often been said,
would not be welcomed in Hindu
Zenanas more cordially than a well-
instructed fomale physician.   *   *
* As I coasted along Ceylon and
the Malay Peninsula, and vast
Ohina, day after day, I seemed to
hear across the roar of the waves
the turbulent sound of the billows
of humanity breaking with a wail
on the stern coasts of our yet barbaric days - 300,000,000 billows in
Ohina, half of them womon; 200,
000,000 such billows break on
the shores of India; multitudes coming out of the unseen, and storming
across the ocean of time to break on
the shores of eternity. And the
sound of that sea was a wave from
servile labour, the dwarfing of the
loftiest capabilities of the soul
through ignorance and false faiths;
infanticide and polygamy, concubinage, enforced widowhood, and
many a nameless condition preventing the development of woman into
that angelic thing sho is by nature,
even without education. I heard
the wail of these hosts until I found
myself resolved, whatever else I
might do or might not do, to echo
the sound of that ocean in the ears
of Christendom until, if Hod should
permit, some adequate enthusiasm
for the reform of woman's condition
in Asia is awakened in the Occident I wish every city of 20,000
inhabitants, in America and Europe
would send one female missionary
into pngiin lnnds. # * * We
havo power to sond medical missionaries to these populations; wo have
power to semi both secular and sacred education to women throughout
Asia; and he who knoweth to do
good and doeth it not, to him it is
sin. Let this wail sound iu the ears
of sensitive womon. Let it sound
in the ears of strong men. Let it
fill the whole atmosphere of Occidental Christendom until wc aroused to
make God's opinion our own ns to
what should be done for women in
Asia, Africa nnd all the isles of the
ma.—Joseph Cook,

the cuow prince's (.'O.NmTios.
London, Nov. 11. - Tlie despatclios
from San Itemo concerning the condition dt Crown Prince aro oxtemely
confusing, but all agree that the physicians attending tho royal patient
hesitate to perform an operation upon
parts of hiB throat, obviously because
of the likelihood of a fatal result. The
latest adices make it quite clear that
no surgical operation will, tike place
until tlie doctors have''finally agreed
upon the question of a direct or internal attack on the seat of the trouble.
If tho former operation, it wilt be performed by Dr. McKenzie, but if an
operation involving the laying open of
the throat, be decided upon, it will be
undertaken by Professor Bergmann,
or some other German specialist. The
Crown Prince hns been absolutely unable tp articulate for the' lost fonr
days. The entire Royal and Imperial
fnniily of Germany iB agitated by the
the condition of the heir to the throne,
and his ceased to entertain hopes of
his recovery or even of his experiencing a temporary season of relief.
AH ATTACK OF APOPLEXY.
Pakis, Nov. 11.—The Matin says
that the Empress of Germany has had
an attack of apoplexy, which has partly paralyzed her.
THE IIIISU SITUATION.
London, Nov. 11.—The Daily Newt
Commissioner in Ireland describes the
situation there as one of social war.
Rent has disappeared and resistance to
tlio landlords is almost universal. The
reductions made by the Land Commission averaged about the same as the
theamounurinsistodonby theorganizors
of the Plan of Campaign, thus showing
tlie rule of justice of tho Irish methods.
The peasantry have plenty of potatoes
to live on, but no money. Taken as a
whole county was never more impoverished. The government will not go in
for land purchase, which they know to
be unpopular, but will push their'iocal
government bill next session, so that
without any attempt to remedy the
Irish grievance the situation .will get
from bad to worse. Tho great Tory
danger is in the urban population,
which is gradually growing anticoer-
cionist. Already the constituency of
the seceding Tory member, Mr. W. T.
Evelyn, has started un anti-coercion
association. „
DISCDSSIKO THE   SITUATIOS.
London, Nov. 11.—The cabinet at
its meeting to-day, discussed the situation in Ireland, the question of relieving
the garrison at Wady Haifa, together
with other matters affecting British interests in Egypt.
Considering the situation in Ireland
it was decided to tako immediately advantage nf the court in the matter of
the appeal of Sullivan, tho Lord Mayor of Dublin, and undertake at once
prosecution of all newspapers publishing reports of suppressed League meetings.
AN EX M. P. ARRESTED.
London, Nov. 11.—The arrest of
William Saiidti-s, ex-member of parliament, in Trafalgar Square today, for
haranguing a crowd, will result in
settling once and for all, tho question
of the right of British subjects to hold
public meetings in Trafalgar Square
and elsewhere in London, nnd the
"Land Restorers" will make the must
of the case ns a test of the legality of
the action of the police, lt has transpired chat some ancient acts of parliament place Trafalgar Square untler the
absolute control of the police, and give
Sir Charles Warren, the Chief commissioner of tho Metropolitan Police, a
decided advantage m defouding his
action.
PRESIDENT 11REVV AND HIS SON-IS-1AW.
Paris, Nov. 11.—It is expected that
President Grovy will resign when the

M. Wilson lias officially left the
pnlacc of tho Elysee the residoiioo of
President Grevy. The Judge of Instruction examined M. Wilson to-day.

Once more the question of indemnifying grand jurors while on
duty has been brought to public
notice; and it must be said that
there is much ground for tho position taken by many in favor of the
movement. It seems to be assumed
that the honor of being a grand
juror ought to Ire a sufficient offset
for the trouble and expense involved
in filling the duties of that position.
Then, too, grand jurors are not required to be in constant attendance
at court, or to sit for hours, and
sometimes through days and nights,
listening to all the dry details of
t case. They come and go almost
as they pleaso, and when the business before them has been completed they aro free to leave the city
even if the work of the petit jurors
is not half done' Nevertheless, it is
often a serious hardship to be a
grand juror. Persons are sometimes forced to travel considerable
distances at their own expense, and
to bear the cost of large hotel bills
while in the city, and the only compensation is the empty honor of the
position, supplemented by the formal
thanks of the presiding justice. We
think the time will come when
either grand jurors will be allowed
a small indemnity, or only such persons as reside in the cities where
courts are held will bo placed on
those jury lists.
The disaster that has occurred to
the Norwegian colony at Squamish
River is most unfortunate. These
people were the advance guard of
many others whom we hoped to
secure as a valuable addition to our
population. There is a vast extent
of territory along tho coast where,
under ordinary circumstances, ono
oould not expect settlers to remain.
These regions are mostly without
any resources except timber and
fish. It was hoped ths Norwegian
fishermen, who are a hardy race unaccustomed to fertile soil or mildness of climate, would Ond the conditions here very much more agreeable than in their own land. These
hopes, too, seemed about to be realized. The pioneers of the new
colony were much pleased with
their location and prospects on Squamish River, and everything would
probably have gone on finely if the
river had not suddenly become
angry and swept over its banks. It
is commonly supposed that the waters both of the straits and the ocean
which wash the north-west coast of
the mainland are rich in Iish fit for
food, and the Norwegians are just
the sort of persons who might be
expected to develop this unknown
source of wealth. Their success
would certainly bring many more of
their countrymen to our shores, and
all along the coast we should presently see settlements of thrifty fishermen with their families, pleased that
they had found in the new world
comparative comfort and a prospect
infinitely brighter than anything
they could expect in thoir own land.
We hope their discouragement will
be only temporary, end that they
may speedily find a location that
will fully meet their wants and expectations.
Net long ago we referred to the
case of Felix Somers, a newspaper
correspondent who in 1872 feigned
madness and got himself committed
to an insane asylum in New York
for the purpose of exposing its
abuses. This stratagem has just
been repeated by a reporter on the
New York World. This timo it
was a young lady, and there seems
to have been no difficulty in tho way
of carrying out the programme. The
Mail gives an account of the transaction, from which it appears that
this young lady, having arrayed herself in old clothes, and assumed the
"far-off look" which is supposed to
be one of the necessary symptoms,
wandered into the neighborhood of a
policeman, was arrested and taken
to the police station, and there declared that she was not insane.
Although she had been neither
charged with nor even suspected of
insanity this declaration wns sufficient, to convince the officials that
she was insane, and her calmness
was accepted as additional proof of
the fact She wu then examined
by k board of medical experts, to
whom she repeated that she was not
insane. Three of the gentlemen
came to the conclusion that she was
not only a dangerous but an incurable lunatic; the fourth thought her
mind was only temporarily clouded
and that home treatment would bo
sufficient to cure her. Eventually,
however, he signed the commitment
to the asylum. Tha young woman
spent ten days in the institution,
her release being then secured by
her friends according to previous
arrangement. Her account of her
experience reveals a horrible system
of treatment in the institution in
question, and makes it clear that
even patjents who are not insane at
the time of their admission are likely
to become so after a short time.
The publication has caused a sensation in New York.

Strong Words for Temperance.
In the Journal of United Labor,
over his own name, Master Workman
T. V. Powderly, in speaking of the
liquor traffic, says:
" Among the letters that came to mo
to-day I find one which takes me to
task for my words on tho temperance
question, spoken some ten or twelve
days ago in Boston and Lynn. My
friend makes the candid admission in
starting out that in the mail. I am
right, that even the rumsoller will not
deny tho justice of my position. Having said as much he ehould have stopped. Even then he told me nothing
new. I know that I am right. I
know that in refusing to even touch a
drop of strong drink I was and am
right. In refusing to treat another to
tbat which I do not believe to be good
for myself to drink I know 1 am right.
In refusing to associate with men who
get drunk I know I am right. In not
allowing rumaellers to gain admittance
into the Order of the Knights of Labor
I know I am right. In advising our
assemblies not to hire halls or meeting-
rooms over drinking places I know I
am right. I havo done this from the
day my voice was first heard in tho
oouncil halls of our order. My position on the question of temperance is
right, I am determined to maintain it.
and will not alter it one jot or tittle.
If 'in the main' I am right, why should
I alter my course?
"Ten years ago I was hissed because I advised men to let strong drink
alone. They threatened to rotten egg
me. I have continued to advise men
to be temperate, and though I have
had no experience that would qualify
me to render and opinion on the efficacy of a rotten egg as an alley to tho
rumseller, yet I would prefer to have
my exterior decorated from summit to
base with the rankest kind of rotten
eggs rather than allow one drop of
liquid villainy to pass my lips or have
the end of my nose illuminated by the
blossom that follows a planting of the
seeds of hatred, envy, malice and damnation, all of which are represented in
a solitary glass of gin."
The Risk.
Every intoxicant hus in it this characteristic—it never satisfies tho drinker, but awakens a constant demand for
more. A small glass whets tho appetite for a larger glass; one drink creates a craving for a second. This is not
the case with any wholesome beverage
or food. Beef and bread do not breed
excess. I began to drink milk ns soon
as I got my eyes open, and I still put
my eyes to sleep evory night by a good
bowl of bread and milk; but 1 do not
find that ono bowl creates a raging
Appetite for two or three more bowls.
A healthful beverage satisfies a healthful appetite; a hurtful beverage like
wine or ale or brandy kindles a morbid
appetite which tends toward an uncontrollable frenzy. The moro alcohol
there is in tho drink the more tierce
is the frenzy. This quality of alcoholic drinks is no respecter of persons.
It will make a fool or u brute of a
Christian (if he tampers with it) just
as soon as of a reprobate. One of the
most eloquent ministers of New Jersey delivered some of his most eloquent discourses under the stimulation
of wine. He imagined that ho could
"preach better" for the stimulant.
But before he was aware he staggered
in hiB pulpit and was cited before a
church court for drunkenness! ln
agony of soul he confessed to his
brother ministers that nobody was so
astonished at the discovery that he
had become au inebriate ub he *tvas
himself. He had been playing with a
serpent; he began to do it with a good
motive; but tho serpent stung him
just as soon as if he had been tho
most graceless blackguard. I venture
to assert that there is not a human
being on the face.of God's earth who
can habitually use intoxicating drinks
aud yet bo perfectly safe. There is
not a specific promise of God'B protection of any Christian who tampers
with alcohol—whether in a wino glass
or a whiski y bottle. We do not affirm
that every wine drinker becomes a sot;
but we do affirm that every wine drinker runs a rUk of becoming one.—Dr,
Theo. Cunler. 	
Pleasant for Beer Drinkers.
Dr. E. H. Bartley, chemist to the
Brooklyn health department, has recently made some discoveries whieh it
will not be pleasant for beer drinkers
to contemplate. His examinations of
different Kinds of bottled beer, including some of the western beers,
show that they contain salicylic acid.
The Medical Record states that the
amount of this acid required to preserve beer is about twelve or fifteen
grains per gallon, and it adds that
"salicylic acid, if taken continuously,
tends to injure digestion nnd irritate
the kidneys." The employment of
this drug in the preservation of different articles of food and drink has
increased so much in Paris that the
French government has already twice
taken action in tho matter.
It is a strong and unexpected proof
of the great advances mado by anti-
saloon sentiment in Missouri, that the
Grand Master Mason in that state calls
on all the lodges in the state to expel
all who are in the liquor dealing business, basing this call on a resolution of
the grand lodge' of Missouri, which
says "that the business of saloon
keeping is hereby declared a Masonic
offence, and those engaged in it are
liable to be dealt with for tin-Masonic
conduct."

Fiqtlshment.
Judge Caldwell of Cincinnati inflicted
a severe punishment on 0. M. Johnson,
n iisuri'r. Under the pretense of desiring lo'holp-tho'poor ne has advanced
tiro ir sni 11 sruns of money and execut-
i d biliti ol aale on their household efforts, lie then charged them a premium fnr .ho money and put on a rate of
irrierr-ri' iti-il lor usurlousness was simply iisuitiiiilriig. In one instance- Ire

l.usin-m w..» really pawnbroking, but
he iliiineil thit his svstem of taking
bills oi sri rr, i'xe)ii|)t'id him from paying
lUe pi«ii..rp'iirr'a license. Several
tlinej diirin; tlu last few months he
haa had several "poor men arreted for
disposing of a few bits of the rickety
furniture on which his claims were
founded. It became-a nuisance in the
eyes of tho authorities, and his affairs
wero iiive^igiitnd with the result of
bavin-,' him arh'sW on a charge of con-
dueling a pawnbroker's business without lir-1'iino. The caso was heard recently an I taken by Judge Caldwell for ex-
ainiinition. Ho announced bis decision
and found the defendant guilty. Then
by i in |rii:riri-.; a heavy fine lie destroyed
the iinurei-'s ptolita and turned into the
ro.Tors o.' tho staid aaum equal to four
times tlio cost of a license. Tho sentence staggered the .prisonor, and he
trembled visibly aa iho words "{1,000
and eo. ti," were pronounced. In addition Judge Caldwell gave him a
settling rebuke feir hia b«rd-hartadness
and his evasion of the law.
Tho Chinese Syndicate.
Ths jdna-ican, of Philadelphia, Mr.
.Wharton Barker's paper, contains the
following statement of ihe concessions
anil grants of power made by the Chi-
ncau 1 empire of the Chinese syndicate r
"Count de Mitkiewiecz, during bis recent visit to Tien-Tsin, obtained for the
Chinese-American Telephone Company
thii exclusive right to'erect telephones,
operate telephone lines and manufacture telephonic apparatus and appliances in all the treaty ports now open
or to be hereafter opened tor a period of
fifty years. In addition io this he returns lo this country with the basis of a
charter for a Cliinsse-American bank,
to he under joint American and Chinese
eonrrol, and. the Capital ot which is to be
contributed jointly by Americans and
Chinese. Tha functions of this institution, ih addition to ihe transacting of a
general banking business, will include
placing of all government loans for such
public purposes as the construction of
railways, the working of mines and the
contracting for supplies needed for such
undertakings. It is also to have authority to issue bank bills and to provide a
uniform currency in gold and silver,
such bank bills and coin to be a legal
tender tor their face value throughout
the empire. '
"As an evidence oi ths- Importance
attaching to ihis enterprise It is only
necessary to mention that Viceroy Li
Hung Chang, Premier of the Chinese
limpiro, and Pei-Yung, Superintendent
ol the Board of Trade, na, consented to
accept the auperviaorshlp of the bank,
and that he has sent as his envoy to
thia country to eminent a diplomat as
Ma Kle Chung, who, in conjunction
with tbe Minister of the Ohinese Imperial Government at Washington, la to
cooler with Mr. Wharton Barker aa to
tin minor details In the plan of the intended bank. It ia probable tbat this
conference, being one fit importance and
deliberately conducted, will occupy
Homo weeks."
This, upon It, face, looks like a very
Important movement in reference to
thu commercial and financial future of
China. If ti shall prove a success, it
will largely contribute to mpderniu the
i liine»eSp^.wdbring|fiifel*lli»o
accordance with the Industrial and commercial operations of the Weitern na-
t ons of Europe, and ol the United
- Mutes. Thia will be an advantage to
China, and the whole trading world.
E
A genuine beet ahonld be nude from
grains, bona, yeaii and water, and any
addition to, or substitutions for, these
four ingredients mar justly be branded
as adulterations. This fact Is patent:
et, while no other country in the world
laa made such comparatively rapid progress aa our own in the production of
fermented liquor^ nowhere else is there
so much dlarwl W* 'to purity and
bealthfulnew •» iofthere else do such
serious coMequencea result from its
extensive consumption. When malt Is
made from barley, the starch contained
in the grain ia transformed into grape
sugar m glucose, which ie subsequently
champed xy fermentation into, alcohol.
this knowledge of tht inward process
led to tlie supposition that all edible
groins containing starch could, under
similar conditions, serve Uie same purposes aa barley, and upon the aame
theory we have now been aaked to be-
Meve thai the tedious processes of our
forefather, were all unnecessary, and
that, since beer is nothing more than a
fermented saccharine liquid, the readily
largest
available glucose should be the Ian
item in its total composition. These
matters whicli have been fully discussed, with which we are all familiar,
and with which we may possibly deal
more exhaustively at a later period;
but meetVimi-whatever the chemeetry
or the art or tho subject maybe, Ihe
truth is that our brewera have gene a

ihey have adopted what must prove in

Thii Association merits the
confidence the Public is reposing in it from the following
FACTS:-
Tbe Beourivy offered to polley holders Is
unsurpassed by any Company doing business In Canada,
It has no schemes of insurance, but the
well-established lines, hence the policy
holders cannot be misled astotbefrcon-
tracts.
Its statements to the public can be readily understood, Its cash statement showing every Item of income and how expen-
It» position Is ascertained annually from
• detailed valuation In which every item
of liability Is Included.
, Its progress bas been unexampled In
the history of Insurance In Canada.
Its policies are Indisputable after three
years, and non-forfeltable after two years'
existence.
lis profits are distributed npon an eqult-
ab e tresis. The proms to one class of
policy holders are not lessened to give
larger pronts to any other olass. which
method affords superior advantages over
tbe uniform bonus plan of distribution.

Alolher Srrl.as Fire.
Mrs. Amos Borvman, of Sumas, who
arrived in tho eity last evening brought
the news of the burning of Mr. Bowman's house and bams on Monday
night. Mrs. Bowman was visiting
at the residence of her sister,
on the Sound, and during her
absence the Are occurred, which totally destroyed the buildings nnd their
contents. Unfortunately there was
net a dollar of insurance on tho property destroyed nnd the loss will be
keenly felt by the family. There aro
grave suspicions that the lire was tho
work of an incendiary, and developments are expected shortly which will
in all probability prove such to be the
case.
The Lolrster Catch n Failure
Mr. Thos. Mowat, inspector of fisheries, has received word from New
Brunswick that the lobster catch for
this const has proved a failure. It appears the railway company were behind
hand in getting tbo car ready for their
transportation ready, and when it did
arrive the weather was very cold. The
pots and traps were set out, but nn
that night a fierce storm raged and
when the traps were inspected only 200
lobsters were found iu them, and the
thermometer being below freezing
point at the timo, they weru frozen as
anon as tnken frum the water, Tho
cold weather has driven the lobBtors
into deep water, and the Bohemo of
colonizing Crustacea in the Pacific
waters will be deferred until May
when another attempt will be made,
which no doubt will be successful.

On the arrival of Mr. Turner, O.K.,

On the receipt of this Mr. Warwick
immediately set sbout making arrangements and without loirs nf time
chartered the str. Stella and a seo w.
A quantity of provisions wero procured and other articles laid iu which
would be likoly to add to the comfort
of the suffering people. All arrangements were completed last night, and

tbe Presbyterian Clipri-li.
At a meeting of tho Presbytery of
Columbia held at Victoria on Wednesday, the application of the congregation of St, Andrew's church, of thnt
eity, to be received into tho Presbyterian Church of Canada, was considered, and nn motion of Rev. D.
McRae, soennded by Rov. Thomas
Scouler, the following resolution was
adopted: " Tlie Presbytery having received and considered an application
from St. Andrew's church, -Victoria,
to be received as a congregation of the
Presbyterian church ill Oanada, and
having read the minutes of congregational meetings leading to Ihe application, and being satisfied with the regularity of the proceedings, and having
read tho resolutions adopted by the
congregation, and tho letter of the
convener of the colonial committee
anent the same, and having heard
commissioners, resolve to grant the
application and receive it, as we hereby do, as a congregation of this church
under the care of thii presbytery."
Tho congregation was then formally
declared to bo a congregation of the
Presbyterian church nf Canada. A
resolution was passed expressing the
prosbytery's appreciation of the generosity of the Church nf Scotland in
maintaining this nnd other churches
in tbe provinco for so many years.
We believe there nro now only two
Presbyterian congregations iu the province remaining in conncct'oii with llio
Church nf Scotland. One nf these is
at N.iiiaiino and the other nt Nicln*
nnd it is almost certain both will unitu
with ihe Canadian church rcryrilinrlly.

When we turned in I put tho money
under the pillow and it was there between 7 and 8 in tho morning. I
missed the money between 2 and 3
o'clock in the afternoon. Wilson,
Antonio snd the woman were in the
room with mo during the morning; I
gave Wilson a dollar to get some drink,
that is all the money I gave him. I
was not sober while in the house; when
I lay down on the bed the prisoner was
in the room; thnt was after I had looked at my money.
To the prisoner—I gave you the dollar in the morning.
To the foreman—I was sober enough
to know the money was there in the
morning. I gave the $20 to the lawyer
who defended me.
To His Lordship—It took mo nil
summer to earn this money.
James Manson, sworn, said: I am a
tailor; I know Wilson, he and Antonio
came to my shop on Friday night and

pay for both pair trowsers.
Wm. Cartwright, sworn, said: I am
a barkeeper, I know the prisoner, on
Saturday he came in and asked a number ot people to have a drink, he paid
for them and nave me two 910 bills to

1 gave it to him.
Frank Devlin,ohief of police, Bworn,
said: I arrested the prisoner on Saturday evening last; I warned him anything be might sny would be used in

having received a $50 bill from Antonio; in answer to iny question why
Antonio hnd given him $50 ho said he
had lent the letter 821, nnd had got
the bill to take his change out of.
His Lordship—Mr. Devlin you have
no right to extort evidence out of prisoners. LordDonmansays: "Youare
not to suppress the truth, but you are
not to make any endeavor of your own
to extort."
Antonio Rodriquez, sworn, said: I
know the prisoner; I was in Jessie
Hsrt's house along with Andersun on
Friday morning; I stayed awhile and
returned about half-past eleven; I
went to the woman's door, she waa
lying in bod with Anderson, and took
his pocket book from his breast and
gave me a $50 hill out of it. I gave the
money to Wilson.
To tho foreman — Andersun and
Jessie Hart wore lying across tho bed.
Wilson wss standing in the next room.
I owed Wilson $21, so I gave him the
money.
His Lordship read the evidence adduced to the jury and allowed them to
draw tbo conclusion they thought best,
ho only charging them to bring in a

writes: "Dr. Thomas' Kclectric Oil commands a lurge and increasing sale whieh
It richly merits. I have always found it
exceedingly helpful; I use It in all coses

calm tho pains of a broken leg with dislocation of the foot, and In two days I
was entirely relieved of the pain."
