Notable Failure ef Justice;
The trisj «rhich resulted _____ the
marder^oi Rev. O. O. Haddock at
Sioux Oity, lows, aome montha ago,
haa tei__.i___.ed im what aeema to be
as vary pUin miacarriage of justice.
Tho murder waa committed under
c_rau_a_n_t_D.es of s peculiar character. Tho stringent laws enacted
for the regulation of tht liquor traf *
«c in Sioux Oity were sot being enforced. The saloon keepers were
determined that they should not be
enforced, -and* tbe liquor interest
was so strong that no one seemed
disposed to come personally into
conflict with it in the interest of
law. In thes. circumstances Mr.
Haddock determined to take the
matter in hand. He boldly put
himself at the head of those who
desired to see the law prevail, and
he became at once the objeot at
whioh the liquor interest aimed the
missiles of its wrath. But when
tha contest began to grow hot, Mr.
Haddock suddenly disappeared. He
was assassinated, and everybody believed tha assassin bad been employed by those whose business had
brought them into conflict with the
victim. ' The supposed murderer
waa arrested, and after a long and
expensive trial, in which all the resources of the law were exhausted
to secure the prisoner's escape,-he'
jury disagreed and the case collapsed. When'the jury was polled
it was found that they stood 11 for
acquittal to 1 for conviction. But
it haa been ascertained that the conduct of the jury was in some respects very peculiar. Mr. O'Connell,
who stood out for conviction, has
made a public statement from which
it appears that during the progress
of the triad the jurymen had plentiful supplies of whiskey which they
drank. Before the case was closed
O'OonneU waa given to understand
that the defence knew the jury
would stand 11 to 1 for acquittal,
and that he held the key to the
situation. When asked whether
■uny of the jurymen were bribed, he
replied that he did not wish to implicate any one, but he said, in reply to another question: "I was
asked to name my price; the offer
waa made on behalf of the defence!"
If the facts ara as stated, the circumstance it anything but creditable to the guardians of justice in
Sioux city. A man Waa brutally
murdered beoause he stood up for
the enforcement of law, and the
murderer escapes justice through
barefaced bribery.
Big Figures.
At the colonial conference recently   held  in  London   the president
delivered, an- interesting address in
whioh he pointed out the wonderful
development of the British empire
during  the past 60 years.     Beginning   with panada he said that in
1837    there   were   two   provinces,
which in 18-iO were united, and in
1867 waa  fornied the confederation
whioh  now  stretched from the Atlantic to the Paoific, and through it
ran   "that i remarkable achievement
of Britiah enterprise," the Oandian
.Pacific Railway.    Australia he described  by laying:   "A nation has
been  created  out of a wilderness,
suid a people have been ennobled by
tha  gut  of institutions whioh the
atruggle and experience of centuries
hava   won ' for   themselves."      In
South  Africa  the ofd Oape Colony
had developed and now there were
Natal and Bechuana-and.   In other
parts of the colonial empire progress
and   development were every whet-
to   he   seen.      But in matters of
trade and: commerce the most striking exhibit was presented.   In 1837
the  imports ot the British Amerioan possessions amounted to £5,200,-
000, and  in  1886 they were £25,
700,000.   I Daring the same period
tha exports rote from £5,000,000 to
_t21,BOO,000.     In  Australasia the
imports have risen froo £1,600,000
to  £63,600,000, and   the  exports
from £1,300,000  to £52,000,000.
Tkm imports ot the African colonies
had    increased in  the same period
from   £2.«efi,000  to £10,000.000,
and tho exports from £ 1,500,000 to
•12,000,000.   The Britith shipping
trade with the colonies in 1837 was
3,700,000 toes, and in 1885 it was
• 09,600,000 to__M and in this period
British  exports to the colonies in-
oreasad  from £11,800,000 to £54,
500,000.      Id   1881 the value ot
British  ships and the freight they
annually   cany   was estimated at
£900,000*000, of which it was con*
Jeotured that £144,000,000 it afloat
a* one thue.    Ih 1837 the popula-
thm of tha e-Vmiet was 4,204,700.
That population of the stmt colonies
fas lS_l wsi-2,753,277, and of all
tha    Britfah   colonies  15,763,072.

What an Association of Illinois Manner*
Hnvo Dono To Garry Their Freight and
Tlieiiwelves. ,
Thoro is a little narrow gauge railroad
ta central Illinois which Is rather amusing.
It runs through a rich farming country and is owned and managed by
wealthy formers. The conductors, engineers, and brakemen are farmer-' sons,
who have grown weary ot raising cattlo
and corn, and who have taken to " railroading "ut relief. , ■
The various stations along the line ot
this little railroad tre of no consequence
whatever, except to their toon or mire
ot Inhabitants and to tht turners of tha
neighborhood.
A train starts from eaeh end ot the
road every morning titer breakfast, runt
to the opposite end ol the road by dinner tune, returns again tor tea, ud Ilea
up for the night.
At there Is no telegraph line eonneotod
with to road, nobody at any of tht stations knows when a train to oomlng until
tt arrives Insight As tho nlll tre laid
on ties placed'on the flit prairie, ud as
no gride exists from one end of tbe road
to tho other, tht toll gnu hu an awkward habit o! getting under the wheels
ud-topping tho frith.   Not lnlrequent-
S* , also, the light rolls spread apart md
e ears run off the traok, ud go tumbling along on tho virgin prairie. '.:':■
Whenever a little accident of this kind
moots, the engineer, oonduotor,"brako-
men and passengen Jump to the ground
and lift tho oars into place again.
The passengers ride Ina oar reserved

that tbe can will follow them In an

on the traok long enough.
Sometimes a locomotive gets tttlltd
on some ont of the several gentle hills
along tht line. The trainmen thereupon
quietly wilt until tbe other engine appeals. Thu the two engines draw tht
train up the hill.

Sheriff Jehu's Oreatsat trial.
The greatest trial that Sherill John
ever baa to undergo wu when a young
mu wu con-rioted of murder uo ten-
fenced to death. It looked very muoh
like a cue of sell-defense, and John took
that view of lt.
After court adjourned he tried to tut
his mind by thrashing three otthejuron.
The other nlno were prudent enough to
hide out, ud thus the peace of the community wu not alarmingly disturbed.
As the day set tor the execution approached, John grew desperate and
gloomy. He spent every afternoon sitting ln the jail talking with his prisoner,
who at that time wu the only Inmate.
The Jail stood In a lonely place, ud at
thtt teuon ot tht yoar, mid-summer,
wu not visible trom any house, on account ot the foliage of Intervening trees.
As tbe two eat there with the door
wide open, tlie prisoner frequently remarked that lt would be easy to mako a
luooeeatul break Ior'liberty.

Then the prisoner would puff awty it

Thi Sheba Ree?.*—The Sheba mino
in South Africa promises to produce
all the gold the world has any use for for
centuries to come. It is a 36-foot reef
and there is exposed a mass of gold
quartz, which, at a rough calculation of
16 cubio feet to the ton, will yield a
million ton* of payable stono without
sinking one single inoh below tho level
of ita exposed base. The metal is visible everywhere, and it is assorted that
nowhere in tho world can such a marvelous deposit be matched.- -Ex.
Victoria Customs,—Customs receipts at Victoria for April amounted
to $93,169 (inclusive of $60 for Chinese head t-,x). This is an increase of
$34,110 over tlio same montli hist

there hoe been a steady falling off in
the customs receipts at Victoria, and
this huge increase for April is very
likely owing to a great extent to tlio.

Gold Discovery.—Whilo the excavations of a reservoir, connected with

was proceeding yesterday, indications
of gold were observed in the dirt;, and
Messrs. Jones and Faucett staked out
claims and had them duly recorded.
Mr. .ones had some of the dirt washed, and specimens of gold were found,
ranging in size from a pin head up to
the size of a pea. The gentlemen
named have so much faith in this discovery that they have paid for a mining license; and will, we learn, proceed
to develop the mines.—Sentinel.
Thi Mission.—The Skating Rink
was crowded last night by persons wbo
listened intently to the powerful nddress delivered by Mrs. Hai_i>suu-
Hemos. All the available standing
room was occupied. The address related to the importance of making tho
beat possible use of present opportunities and laying up treasure beyond
Ihe grave. None of the things in a
man's possession at the time of his
death could go with him to tho oternnl
world, but his possession there would
be the things he had during his lifetime set apart for the Lord—these
were all laid lip in store for his eternal
possession. The address occupied
nearly two houra in delivery, and
quite a number of people remained to
the after meeting. To-night the
meeting will be in the Skating Rink at
8 o'clock, and to-morrow night a temperance mass meeting will be addressed
by Mra. Hampaon-Henms. This will
close the mission.

Vancouver Fnus Protection,—We
have received for publication a letter
written by Mr. Edward Gold, of Vanoouver, ill which he draws attontion
to the inefficiency of the means pro*
vided for the protection of that city
from fire because of the lack of water
and appliances on the psH of the company. Mr. Gold ia of opinion that tho
council should make this matter first
in considering the improvements which
require immediate attention. When
the dry season conies, as it will soon
come, the work of clearing land will
bring back the danger of conflagration,
and if the implements for fighting this
destructive enemy are not at hand and
in order, another disaster similar to
that of last June may overtake the
young city. Mr. Gold says tho city
has now a good steam lire ongine and
an efficient lire company, but until the
company has received the necessary
equipment for whioh it has frequently
applied to the counoil in vain, its usefulness .in case of emergency must be
limited. Instead of spending tlio
city's resources on-pleasure grounds
(for whioh it is proposed to take $5000),
and other schemes which may be very
excellent in themselves, Mr. Gold
thinks everything should bo mado
secondary to the placing of the tire
brigade on a But-class footing. He
suggests the erection of more tanks,
that the approach to the bay at tlie
foot of Carrol st. be put in good condition end a large pit sunk where a
good supply of water could always be
found, the purchase and training of a
good span of horses to draw the engine,
and regular weekly practice for tho
oompany. Mr. Gold saya ho sent this
letter to the News, but tho editor refused to publish it. As the letter is of
considerable length, and our space is
limited, we shall have to ask Mr. Gold
to bo content with the above notioe indicating the drift of his communication.
Mr. W.R. Lazier, Bailiff, 4c, Belle*
ville, writes: "I find Dr. Thomas' Ecleotrio Oil the heat medicine I have evor

rheumatism, at times wholly disublcd:
I tried anything and everything recom*
mended, bat foiled to get any benefit,
until a gentlenum who was cured of rheumatism by Dr. Thomas' Eclectrie Oil,
told ino about it. I began using it in*
ternally and externally, and before two
bottles were used I was radically cured,
We find it household medicine, and for
croup, burns, cuts and braises, it has no
equal.."

White Ceoxze Monuments.—White
Bronse .a a comparatively new substance,
and has come into large use, rapidly, for
speoial purposes in this country. It has
been found to bo so well adapted for statuary and monuments, tkat companies
have been for some time established at
Bridgeport, Conn., Detroit, Mich., Des
Moines, Iowa, and St. Thomas, Canada,
who are making monuments of all kinds
and styles. From experiments made by
these companies, it has bean found that
the material will stand- exposure* for on
Indefinite p. _od—It is practically indc*
structlb.o.. White Bronze being non-
corrosive ond nnchar^eable, it is stated
to be equal to gold, silver or platinum,
and superior to topper or antique bronze,
which throws oi?a verdigris. The monuments are cas. f-om refined zinc, and are
given tlieir sparkling appearance by the
sand blast, sand being blown against the
work uuder a high pressure of steam,
whieb cuts the surface, but does not adhere to it. A thin film of oxide which
forms on th*'. bronze is indistructible by
the elements; it cannot he dissolved by
water, and air cannot penetrate it, although the film is lo thin as to be immeasurable. No corrosion, i_ is affirmed,
nan take place.—Bon ton Journal of Com-
