Spring Assizes.
The assize court opened nt 11
o'olock on Wednesday fot-Riioon,
His Lordship Justice McCreight
presiding. Thero ware very few*
spectators present except court
officials and thoso concerned in the
proceedings. The grand jury was
sworn in, and comprised the following gentlemen: W. R. Austin, T.
L. Briggs, Geo. Butchart, Hy,
Davis, C. W. Gillanders, Wm.
Johnston, J. E. Lord, T. E. Ladner, Geo. Meade, 0, McDonough,
D, McNair, T. R. Pearson, Wm.
' Rae, Jos. Sieves, J. B. Tiffin, J. A.
Webster. Mr. Lord was chosen
foreman.
The learned judge then briefly
referred to tlie enses on the calendar. In the case of Chas. Alexis,
for the murder of Calder in this
city \ years ngo, at the time
there wns no clue to the murder,
but subsequently certain statements
had been made, especially by
tlio Indian woman Mary. It is
stated that they were all intoxicated and quarrelled on the bridge,
when tlie prisoner killed deceased
and throw him over into tbe ravine.
He thought the jury would have no
dilliculty in finding a true bill.
In the case of Jas. Patterson,
for attempt to murder Constable
Wiggins, it seemed that prisoner
had been making threats against
Wiggins and went to a place where
be expected to Iind him. He put
liis hand in his pocket and was apparently in the act of attempting to
shoot when Wiggins seized him and
found a pistol in his pocket. No
doubt thero bad been an assault,
and the jury must judge whether
them was an intent to murder.
The other casos were briefly referred to, and his lordship ndded
that if the grand jury had knowledge of any grievance or any matter which seemed of sufficient importance, it was competent for them
to bring it beforo the court. The
grand jury then retired, and court
adjourned for half an hour.
Court resumed at 12 o'clock. The
tirst case was that of Jas. Patterson for attempting to shoot John
Wiggins. Mr..McColl (Corbould it
JleColl) appeared for the crown :
tbo prisoner, who pleaded not guilty, was undefended. Mr. McColl
briefly addressed the jury, and intimated that tbe point requiring most
serious enquiry was with respect to
the intent of the prisoner. It
would be shown that Constable
Wiggins hnd given offence to prisoner, in the discharge of his duty, aud
while quietly taking his dinner in a
restaurant was threatened by the
prisoner.
The first witness was Jno. Rankin, who suid tbat shortly before
noon on the 28th Patterson came to
my place and asked if I knew where
Wiegins was. I said I did not. He
took a revolver out of his pocket
and said lie was going to kill Bole
nnd Wiggins; afterwards lie said
)ie would let Bole go, hut Wiggins
would be a doad man before night;
lie started oft* towards Deibel's res
taurant.
H, Kerstein, employed at Deibel's
restaurant, said that on the '28th,
shortly after noon, Patterson came
into the restaurunt whilo Wiggins
was sitting at thfl table; Patterson
was in tho doorway and Wiggins
started to go out; they had somo
words; heard Patterson say, "Don't
you como any nearer ine"; Wiggins
stepped a littlo to one side, grabbed
Patterson, threw him down, and
then threw a revolver on the table
when Patterson was standing iu
front of Wiggins ho had his right
hand in his cont pocket, tlie hand
aud pocket being slightly raised and
pointing towards Wiggins; if he
- hud fired a pistol in that attitude it
would have struck Wiggins,
Albert Deibel corroborated the
statement of previous witness;
when Patterson came in at the door
he took a handkerchief out of his
right pocket and put it into his left;
jic then put his hand iu his right
pocket and held it iu such a position
us would enable him to shoot Wiggins ; as he came forward ho said to
Wiggins, "You're tho man I'm looking for"; Wiggins said, "Who?" he
replied, "For you"; Wiggins then
got up and went towards him, but
he said, "Don't como near me";
Wiggins stepped back and got his
hat; ho then spoko to prisoner and
wont towards him and made as if
he would puss him ; prisoner turned
partly round, and Wiggins grubbed
hiin and threw him on the floor, and
threw a revolver ou the table; revolver same as one produced.
Constable Wiggins gave evidence
which iu main points wus similar to
that of Deibel and Iteration. He
said that whon lie got up from tho
table it was with the intention of
putting Patterson out; he noticed
the position of prisoner's hand
in his pocket, aud did not wish
to attack him in front, as he was
afraid of tho weapon ; when ho had
thrown him down he took from bis
right pocket the revolver produced.
It is a self-cocker, and WM londed
in 4 chambers; prisoner has been
beforo the police court for supplying
liquor to Indians and for vagrancy;
I have had no quarrel t'th him,
and no ill feeling towards'-hi m.
The prisoner made a sttuoment to
tho effect that tho constablu^id alms-
usod him and threatened bin;; said he
had tho revolver in his pocket became
ho had boon asked by his partner to
Bell it; did not show t|io revolver in
tbe hotel; went to iho restaurant for
lunch, and didn't know Wiggins wns
thero. v
The judgo instructed Uio!j jury to
find a verdict for attempt to Piurdor if
they wero satisfied tho prhonor was
attempting to discharge tho pistol; if
he wns merely pointing it at the constable it would bo an assault. 'After a
brief absence tho jury found a verdict
(if HSBiUllt. f
The next ease was agaiusi Jack, nn
Indian, for stealing a steer near Cook's
Ferry. Tho only witness in thia case
was a Frenchman named Pettitte. Tliis
man testified that he lost a steer last
fall, and about threo weoks afterward
found it nt Phair's; the ateer had his
brand on it, and was branded by the
prisoner. The prisoner staled for himself thnt hu stole the steer when be
was drunk and sold it lo Phair, but
when lio got sober be took t,he money
back to Phair and wanted tbo steer restored to Pfittitto. Tho judgo advised
prisoner, who was undefended, to enter
a plea of not guilty. As evidence the
prosecution put iu a confession of
guilty made by Jack at the preliminary
trial. The judge did uut seem satisfied
with this, and indeed expressed an
opinion tbat there was no case. The
crown prosecutor intimated tliat Phair's
evidence was very material, but although ho had entered into bonds to
appear be had failed tn do so. Uut ns
the judge had expressed the opinion
that tbo evidence was not sufficient, hi
would enter a nolle prosequi. Jack
was, therefore, discharged, to his vory
great amazement.
Wo Hi, for stealing SIC* from
Moodyville post ofiiee, was noxt arraigned. Mr. Bole appeared for tbo
prisoner and pleaded not guilty.
Calvin Simpson, post • master at
Moodyville, was tlie first witness. Ho
stated that Hi was employed as domestic at bis house, and it was hia
duty to sweep out tbo store where the
post oflico is; ou tho evening of the
!)th Dec. witness gave somo P, 0.
orders, and took a §10 gold piece and
a now §5 hank note. These were
placed in a sort of cupboard behind
tho counter where tho money was
usually kept; they were there when
the place was looked up, and noxt
morning at 8 thoy wero gono; prisoner
liad swept out the store as usual that
morning, and no other person had
access j the sweeping was done between 0 and 7 a. in., and witness
usually came down about 7; thero was
uo ovidonco of any attempt to break
tho shop, but some one bud apparently pried tho door of tho cupboard
open with a ohissel; he and Mr. Mount put a paper in the cupboard next
night so that it would fall if the door
was opeiifd; next morning the pnpor
had fallen; again they placed an ink
bottlo so that it would ful! when ihe
door was opened, and in the morning
it was found fallen and spilled; suspected Hi, and brought him to tlio
shop nud charged bim with the tlicft;
he denied it; searched his room; iu
bin trousei-3 found a purse with a
small amount of money; in Mb valise
found n new 85 hank note with a 810
gold piece rolled up in it, shoved inside tbe lining; tho bill and coin were
exactly like the ones stolen.
Mr. A. J. Mount, who assisted Mr,
Simpson in thoso matters, corroborated bis ovidonco. Mr. Bole contended tbat there wub no proof of guilt,
as it had not been shown tlmt these
wero tbo identical pieces of money
lost. The judgo seemed to think
there was presumptive evidence of
guilt, and tho jury very soon found a
verdict of guilty. Court adjourned
till Thursday morning at 10.

And now the Sun Francisco News
Letter gives its opinion on Ui"
Afghan situation in winds whieh
contrast strongly with the sentiments uttered by the Seattle Post.
It snys; "As for the outcome of the
conflict, we have no doubt or fear.
Unquestionably it will he a desperate contest, but mig^fc as well as
right is on tho side of the Uritish.
Tho lion never was better ablo to
assert his prowess, uno it is perhaps a significant fact that the
closing years of the political career
of him who lias done so much for
tlie advancement of liberty should
be thrown into prominence by a
death struggle witli tho groat and
overbearing foe of human freedom,
out of which, amid the smoke of
battle, tlie friends of liberty and
progress will emerge triumphant,"
Tliere is very littlo room to doubt
that u serious failure of justico has
occurred in the case of Smith and
Miller, tried at the late assizes for
robbery. The evidence at the preliminary examination was so clear
and concise thnt nothing seemed
wanting. The evidence given by
Murray at the court on Thursday
was nlso very positive and strong,
and it was corroborated by the two
other witnesses. But Lynn, the
man upon whom robbery was committed, could not be found, and the
case bad to be abandoned. It is
stated that Lynn has been purposely
kept out of the way with the object
of defeating the ends of justice. It
is a great pity this could not be
proved and punished with the severest possible penalties. Oue cannot
help regretting that so serious and
deliberate a crime should go without adequate punishment-.
Important Announcement.
The secretary of the Board of
Trade in this city has received two
telegrams from Mr, Homer, M.P.,
which contain important announcements. Inpne it is stated tli.it-.tlH- Dominion government homestead lauds
in this province will he sold to settlers at 81 per acre, and the other
announces that the Dominion timber rates are 7-r> cts, per 1,000 feet,
hoard measure, and 30 cts. per tree,
ft was rumored not long ago that
the federal government had shown
an inclination to disregard the understanding arrived at during the
settlement bill negotiations to the
efl'ect that bona i'ale settlers would
get these lands nt rSl an acre, and
we believe the provincial govornment has been exchanging correspondence with Ottawa respecting
that point. Whether the announcement of Mr. Homer is the outcome
of this correspondence or not wc do
not know, but we are very glad that
the matter lias been adjusted in a
way which must be extremely satisfactory to present ami prospective
settlers on tliese lands. With respect to the timber rates, we are
afraid much dissatisfaction will be
produced on account of the very
high schedule fixed, Hitherto tbe
timber dues have amounted to nbout
2">cts. per 1,000, hut the new rates
will be over 7o cts. Some of the
mills, it is said, will be found indebted to tlie Dominion government
many thousands of dollars,
Important Discovery.
One of the most important theological and literary finds announced
in a long time was made a little
over a year ngo by a Oreek named
ISryeiiiiios, who is by birth a Turk.
lie is very learned^ind hns occupied
a high position in the Oreek church
for years. While ut Constantinople
lie found in the Convent of the Most
Holy Sepulchre a manuscript known
as the "Teaching of the Twelve
Apostles," which is said to be the
earliest manual of the Christian
church. It contains only IG chapters, and is desoribed by the well-
known Dr. Hchaff in theso words :
Tlie treatise eontnhis n summary
of cutecheticnl instruction and directions concerning baptism, the Lord's
Supper, the officers of the church
(apostles, prophets, teachers, bishops, and deacons), and exbortntions
to wntchfulnoss in view of the second coming of Christ und the end
of the world. It corresponds iu a
measure to the catechisms, prayer-
books, and church directories now
in use. It gives the Lord's Prayer
in the very words of Matthew, with
the advice to pray it threo times a
day " and three eucharistio prayers,
the oldest extant, very brief and
simple, but allows also freo prayer
in public worship. It clirocts tlio
observance of tlie first day of the
week as tho Lord's Day in com-
nieinoralion of his resurrection, and
of Wednesday aud Friday as fast-
days in commemoration of his passion and crucifixion. It gives preference to river baptism by immersion, according to the precedent of
Christ's baptism in the Jordan, but
allows also oilier modes, by allusion
or pouring, in case of scarcity of
wator. It gives directions for apostles, i.e., wandering evangelists or
itenerant missionaries, prophets, and
other niinislers of theOospel. Its
moral tone is most excellent, and in
full harmony with the Sermon on
the Mount, from which several pus-
sages ure taken. It sums up the
Christian duty in the royal commandment of love to Clod and love
to our fellow-men. The treatise
wus probable written by a disciple
of the Apostles, before the close of
the first century, in Palestine or
Syria, its chief value is that it
puts us into the situation of the
church immediately after the death
of the Apostles, and before the ecclesiastical consolidation of tbe second century, especially in the Igna-
tiau Epistles. The author was a
Jewish Christian und contemporary
of Clement, the first Bishop of
Borne, whose Epistle to the Corinthians is now fully in our possession
by the discovery of Bryennios.
These two documents arc by far the
most valuable among tlie writings
of the so-called Apostolic Fathers.
But when we compare them witli
the New Testament, they are merely a weak echo of the words of inspiration, and furnish one of the
best proofs for the Divine origin of
our Oospels and Epistles. It is
further stated that this document
wns known to some of the Oreek
fathers centuries ago. but had entirely disappeared from public
knowledge until tho discovery of
Bryennios near the end of 188;}.
There seems to be no doubt nbout
the genuineness of the document,
and it will add much to our knowledge of the organization mul practices of the early Christian church,
before it became corrupted by men
of misraken notions.
A letter from P. O. Sliiirplcas, Druggist, Mai-ion, Ohio, En writing of Dr.
Thomas' lieleetric Oil, says: Une man
was cured of sore throat of 8 years'
Btnnding with one bottle. We hive a
niiKilier of cases of rheumatism that
have heen cureil when other remedies
have failed." We consider it the hest
medicine sold.

The specimens-shown us contain 70

in the claim ef Clifford & May, for
which they received a charter from
tbo legislature in 1883.—Vie. Times,

nouncod Hint tbo str. Yosemite will bo

Wo are sure every person will be
ploased at this announcement; but it
is also stated that hereafter tho mail
HloHiuor will leave Victuria at noon in-
stead of 7 a. nv, and at t|iis we are
not pleased. Every qhnftgp in the
ninil arrangements seems to be resulting in fewer facilities and greater embarrassments for the people of this
city and district. Who is running tlio
mail business anyway I Wo call upon
the peoplo to protest emphatically ttgainHt this latest innovation.
The Panama Canal.—Tho Now
York Times concludes, from reports of
the U. S, naval oflicers, of whicli it
presents a summary, according to tlie
latest and most complete presentation
of tho condition and prospects of the
Panama Canal, that it cannot bu completed iu less than firo years, or at a
less cost than §450,000,000; also, that
if its receipts, whon completed, should
be ub high as 813,000,000 annually,
the tixed charges would swallow up
the entire amount. It is doubtful, iu
point of fact, if the interest on obligations could bo met, to say nothing
of the dividends on its stock. Its
ability to raise money when its present resources uro exhausted, as they
are likely to bu in about a year, de-
ponds absolutely upon the ability of
the company to go on. If it goos
into financial straits, what will be the
consequences? Too much will have
been dono and too much expended to
admit of the sehome being radically
abandoned. Will not the interposition of Iho French government be

Doubtful;—The Canadian correspondent of tho New York Church Pws
says: "The knell of tho Reformed
Episcopal body is being rung. Iu
Toronto lhey have shut up ono of their
two places uf worship, and with their
minister uow serving as a deacon in
the parish church of the Ascension,
have como over to the church. Tlieir
othor community is hi great difficulties.
In Hamilton the same talo iB told, and
in Montreal they are struggling for a
baro. existence. What has hurt them
very muoh ia tho suspicion that,the
body has beeu meddling iu tho Metlakahtla trouble iu British Columbia,
and so stirring up the Indians against
Bishop Ridley, of New Caledonia, as
to create the gravest fears of bloodshed. The trouble has reached auch
a height that a British gunboat has
been sont up to maintain order." This
correspondent's statement with respect
to the condition of the reform movement in eastern Canada may bu perfectly correct for all we know, but the
idua of making the reform church
responsible for tliu troubles at Metlakahtla is somewhat now, and we do
not think it will bear serious scrutiny.

Yale, May Cth.—It was reported

Benj. Chapman, charged with attempting to shoot Robt. Thomson, nt
Chilliwhack, on the 23rd April, was
put iu the dock. Mr. McColl briefly
addrossud the jury, pointing out tlio
principal features uf tho ease.
Robt. Thomson and his father and
Geo. Reid wero tho crown witnesses,
and agreed perfectly in tlieir evidence,
which was to the following effect:
Reid had lately como to the province,
king for land; ho was told of a
pieco of crown bind on Fairfield
Island, near Chilliwhack; found the
land unoccupied; began cutting timber
fur a house; on the morning of thu
23rd April he found two men on the
land building a bouse with the timber
lio had out; did not know tho men
then, but Bubsoipiently knew them as
the two Chapinans; went for Thorn-
sou and Iub son, who were old acquaintances, and asked them to go
with him aud seo about the laud; the
three mon went to the island and
found the Chapman brothers there,
who ordered thom off; Geo. Chapman
raised an axe over the elder Thomson's
head and threatened tf split him opon;
the 3 men said they did not want to
quarrel, but had come with Reid, who
was a stranger, to soe about the land;
if the Chapiuuus could show a titlo to
tho land the others said they would
loavo; the Chapmnna went awny to
get tho papers, aud shortly afterwards
Mrs. Chapman oiimej she ordered the
meu off, and sums high words wore
used between them; she said she was
a Yankeo and had a revolver and
woultl shoot tho three of thein; also
that hor husband was coining with a
shotgun and would fix them plenty;
Benj. Chapman then returned with a
gun and n brush book; he pointed thu
gun at young Thomson, at thesame
time saying ho would liluw his head
ofl'; both Thomsons called to him not
to shoot; Thomson, son., then went
up aud took the gun away from Chapman, and hud it on tho ground; did
not know whether gun was loaded, ol
whether it was cocked; when Mrs,
Chapman came up sho was very indi<£
nant, and used bad language; Thomson did not take hold of her, or call
her names; Chapman then produced
his application for tho land, ntid tho
others went awny. When the case for
tho crown had been closed, upon consent the graver charge was withdrawn
and tho ease made oue of assault.
Mr. Bolo appeared for the defense,
and Iho witnesses testified ns follows;
On the day of thu trouble the two
Thomsons came along tp where tho
Chiipmans were working; Thomson,
sen., used very bad language, and
threatened them; bo picked up ti
spade wliich ho flourished about, and
the throe men wanted to light Geo. Chapman; the Chnpiuuns went to get their
land records; Ben. went to the house,
but Geo. turned into tho bush and
hid in a hollow stump ro he could hear
and soe all that took place; Ben. came
bnck with a brush hook nnd nu old
rusty rifle on his shoulders; laid the
gun on tho ground, when Thomson
picked it up, pointed it at Chapman
and said, "That's the way you pointed
it at my son." He then threw tho
gun down; when Mrs, Chapman came
uut Thomson grabbed her by the friut
to keep her from going into thediouae;
he also called her very bad uamos; all
three Chapinans donicd that a gun
had been pointed at Thomson.
Mr. Bole characterized tho esse as
a frivolous one aud Baid it should
have boen settled by tbo magistrates.
Mr. McColl coincided with this opinion. In add less ing tho jury the judge
said tho question was whether the gun
had boen pointed nt Thomson. The
jury, after a short absence found that
it hnd, and brought a verdict of assault. Judgment waa suspended until
next court so as to givo time lo settle
a point of law,
Tho grand jury returned no bill in
tho Perkins arson case. Thd jury
thereupon were handed a fresh indictment against him for perjury in making a false declaration for tho purpose
of obtaining insurance money, Ou
this indictment the jurv found a truo
bill.
' Alexis, for the murder of Calder,
pleaded not guilty thruugh Mr. Bole,
his counsel, and the case was adjourned till next assizes.
The caso ngninst Wilson, of Chilliwhack, for threatening to shoot Chad-
soy, was also postponed because Wilson was not nble to nppear.
Benjamin Smith and Chns. Miller
were charged with committing highway robbery on Hugh Lynn in this
city on the 3rd February. They
pleaded not guilty. Mr, McColl snid
Lynn had entered into bonds to appear
ns a witness, and had been properly
suhpecnaed, but was nut present. Ho
asked thnt n bench warrant should
issue for his arrest. Tho court granted this, aud a similar application for
Win. Morton, anothor important witness in tho caso,
J, C. Murray testified that ho was
with Lynn on the day of the robbery; they had been drinking a good
deal; hnd supper nt the Eagle Hotel,
after which thoy went to a bad house;
loft thero about 10 or 11 at night and
started down towards tho swamp; met
the two prisoners hb they woro leaving
tho liouso; whon thoy had gone Borne
distance tho prisoners overtook them,
nnd knocked thom down; Smith
knocked witness down, nud Miller
felled Lynn; be fell into tho ditch,
but got up at onco nnd mado off; when
he left the two prisoners had Lynn
down; witness came up to the Gem
snloon, nnd shortly afterwards Miller
camo in, nnd seemed to have plenty
of money to spend; wns with both of
thu prisoners noxt morning; Miller
asked Smith if ho hnd changed 8o0,
to whioh he said no; Miller said he
would got it changed, and he did so;
went with them to tho Telegraph
saloon; on tho way they were talking
about tho robbery and said they hnd
made n clean job of it; Miller gave
mo $22 and said I had butter keep
still about what thoy had done; heard
thotn sny thoy got 870 from Lynn; was
siaying at same hotel aa the prisoners;
thoy didn't seem to have any money
to spend beforo tho night nf the robbery; after that thuy wore quito flush.
On cross examination by Mr. Bole
witness said the prisoners had not
boon working for some timo beforo the
robbery; thoy had been on a spree fur
a few days; first mot Lynn at thu
Eagle hotel that day; would mil have
said anything about the rubbery if ho
had not been arrested) was sure Ihu
prisoners committed Ihu robbery.
Chac, Austin, a colored man who
was cook at the Eagle hotel at ihu
time ofthe robbery, said the prison,
ers hud been at the hotel tilmtit lw-
weeks; never BrtW them hnve UltWli
money; tlm day after tho r .U-urv liu
saw Millt-r with a gold liloco and Wiino
silvur; Miller was looking very wil,
nnd in reply tn witiiwis Baid no expocted to be arrested thnt day, but
would not sny why; hoiiio of the men
in the saloon nsked him t» shout, but
he said hu wouldn't shout till aftei
dark (witness explained that "shouting" meant treating),
Thos. Olelhvud. of the Etude hotel,
said the prisoners boarded at Ida houao
nbout two weeks; on tho night of tho
robbery Miller paid him S10 on ac-
unt and also left a §5 bill for safe
keeping; it was about midnight when
he paid the money.
Ab neither Lynn nor Morton cuuld
be found, tho crown attorney here
entered ft nolle prosequi and the prisoners wero discharged, and court adjourned till Friday.
Tho case against Wm. Perkins, for
perjury, came up at 11 o'clock yesterday morning. Tho indictment charged
that Perkins made a declaration before
a notary for the purpose of obtaining
the insurance money that tho property
destroyed by firo on tho 3rd March
was worth §2,132 and this declaration
was falso. For the orown Mr. McColl
(Corbould & McColl) appeared, instructed by Mr. Bole; for tho prisoner
Mr. Drake, Q. C, and Mr. Theo.
Davie. Mr. Drake moved to quash
tho ipdictmont on tho ground that it
should state tho exact amount with
respect to wliich n false declaration
hud been made, as it wns quite consistent with lhe indictment that a mistake
of 25cts. was made. Mr. McColl said
theirown would stand by the indictment ns it wns. Tho court expressed
no opinion im the point. Mr. Drake
nsked his lordship to reserve the point.
The prisoner was arraigned and pleaded not guilty. Mr. Drake again moved
to quash tho Indictment, Mr. Bole;
"Tho motion is loo Into. Under thu
32ud sec. it shuuld bu finally disposed
of beforo plea pleaded." Thu court
reserved all thu law points.    I
Thu jury was addressed briefly by
Mr. McColl, and the first witness
called was
Mr. H. D. Helmcken, of Victoria,
who testified ns tu tho declaration
mnde by the prisoner. Mr. Drake objected to Mr. Helniekcn's coiinnissioti
because it did not empower him to
take such decarations as this. Ho also
objected fo thu declaration because it
wns made undor a provincial law which
had beeu virtually repealed by a federal act; also, on account of other discrepancies. Mr. McColl contra. Tho
points were noted and reserved.
Robert Ward, agent for the Royal
Insurance Co., under which tho policy
was issued, testified respecting the insurance, wliich was eil'ectod in 1883,
and renewed in 1884; ho was advised
uf fire and destruction of property;
prisoner called in March, aud produced
his policies; said he could not account
for tho fire; hud left his place about
7:30 oh 23rd March, taking his papers
nud money in a trunk; that his ton
had carried it down the river iu a boat,
while ho walked down to Trethowey's;
there had been no lire in thu house
sinco 10 n. m. that dny; said that
whon the train passed tho houso that
night ho noticed tho axle on firo; perhaps it might have caught from a bush
fire; said ho kept no books iu tho
store; asked how ho could know how
much goods ho had without books; hu
produced a memo, book iu which he
had estimated the goods worth §500 or
thereabouts; he had a list uf furniture
which bo supposed wns there also,
valued at 8700, but this wns not insured; ho said he considered the furniture merchandise, hb he had boen
trying to sell it, ns he intended to
leave the country; told him hia claim
must bo made up properly in accordance with the conditions of the policy;
several days afterwards ho called with
h card ou which was his address in Sun
Francisco; found bo had taken passage
for San Franoisco; saw Mr. Hohucken
(prisoner's solicitor) who said the claim
bad boon prepared; sent a person up to
mnke inquiries, nnd certain proceedings wero taken in consequence. Cross
examinod by Mr. Davie, but nothing
additional was elicited. Mr. Jas.
Wells was next sworn. Said he lives
about half a milo from Mr. Perkins;
remember night of lire; when I
reached tho fire thoro were several
there from the Mission; tho fire was
in tho dwelling house; know tho building called tho store; it was not on fire
whon I got there; door of store was
broken opeu after I got there; assisted
in saving goods; all tho goods wore
taken out, excepting a little corn on
the floor; thero was only one room in
tho store; took 10 to 15 Afoutea to get
out tho goods; Perkinfc told us to
stand back, to keep clear of explosions of powder; hoard gun go off in
the dwelling house; there was uo explosion in the store; noticed no bush
tires befort, but noticed some about
1 milit away afterwards; saw the ceiling of the atore burn and fall, but saw
no goods como down. Mr. C. E.
Woods was Bwcrn and produced a map
of tho olace, which ho explained.

MWS FROM ALL PARTS OF THE WORLD.
Lonuon, May 4,—In the house referring to the subject of resumption of gpm-
municatioiis in London between Kngland
nnd Russia, Gladstone said they would
he much facilitated by the moro full aud
exact knowledge which tlio government
now possessed of the Ameer's views since
the meeting between lum and Karl Dufferin at Rawul Pindi nnd valuable topographic Information, which hnd since
reached Kngland. The Klght Hon. Sir
Charles Dilke, president of the local government hoard, announced for the gov
eminent tlint it was imperative in the interest of the country that the house proceed at mice with the vote of credit,    A
number of members "t once put inter-
rogatories to tho government concerning
the trustworthiness of reports, both of
tl*ii. Kir Peter Lumsden's nml Gem
KoniHioirs. Gladstone answered in detail, stating iu substance that the dispute of the Penjdeh hialdont had novor
been a question of trial of any ollicer.
hut one whieh concerned the honor of
the two governments involved in the
March agreement, It was not in the
power1 of either party to this agreement
to claim exclusive right ot interpretation;
the speaker believed the agreement
would lie found sulficiontly clear, .
Lord Randolph Churchill, the young
conservative leader, now arose nud
launched into a savage assault on tho
government. "The argument just made
on behalf of the government was a terrible piece of news for those anxious for
tho safety of the Indian empire. The
government," tried his lordship, "have
made a base, cowardly surrender of every,
point at issue to Russia. I greatly fear
that us a result wc have lost India.1'
Lord Randolph continuing, said that he
protested ngamst the conduct of the government in submitting a voto of credit
on Monday last without giving the
slightest indication of their policy, and
the exact point at issue with Russia.
The latter, he continued, had been for a
loug time breaking the agreement of 18/3
With respect to Central Asia. In regard
to the Afghans Lord Churchill insisted
that the Russians long ago passed the
boundary which they had promised to
respect na the rightful frontier line of
the Ameer's dominion. In 1882 a scries
of pledges were voluntarily given by
Russia concerning the boundary, aud all
of them had been deliberately broken,
Mr. Henry Labouehere, radical, moved
that the vote of credit be reduced from
£55,000,000 to jMii.UOO.OOO. The motion
wus rejected by 7U lo 29, The majority
included the conservative leaders. The
Parnellites voted with the minority.
The speaker then put the main question,
the vote of credit of £65,000,000. .Several members questioned (Hailstone, but
failed to elicit any further information,
Sir Randolph Churchill suid he feared
that when the nuws should become
known iu India Kngland would lose all
respect, sympathy uud loyalty of the
native. Ho declared the history of Russia's negotiations with Kngland wus a
record of treachery, fraud nud falsehood.
Remembering the action of the government in -the preseut matter and the useless sacrifices in the Soudan, it was impossible to repose the slightest confidence
in the government, and it was farciul to
acquiesce in the present vote. He implored the ministers who were dealing
with the present crisis to remember the
past purfidy of Russia and their duty to
England and India. (Loud cheers.)
(Hailstone said there hud heen
ehiuigc in the government policy since
Monday Inst, when the house unanimously voted in favor of the credit. The gov
eminent were trying to obtain a definite
Russo-Afghan frontier and he trusted
they would succeed. At present there
wns no frontier in existence enabling one
power to cull another to account for
passing u forbidden line. He contended
that if papers when published showed
that the Amce'.- did not desire an advanced frontier, England bud no right to
force it on hiin. In Mr. Gladstone's
judgment any appearance of hesitation
in agreeing to the credit would be a seii
ous public evil. He had no objection to
the sweeping criticism; but when possibly thero was the prospect of a favorable issue of the difficult crisis he asked
the house not to retrograde from what it
hud already patriotically dono. He declared if in such a period of anxiety nud
difficulty the government were unworthy
of being trusted the sooner they were released from their responsibilities the better.
Tl e motion thnt the debate be adjourned was negatived by a vote of 18 to
US. Baron Henry De Worms (conservative) moved that the house be ndjourned. Gladstone opposed the motion,
saying he did so under a deep sense of
publio duty. Sir Stafford Northcoto explained tlmt the opposition had no wish
to exhibit a policy of hesitation, hut
simply wanted time to understand the
government's policy. Tho motion to adjourn was lost by a vote,of Bill to Ul,
and a further motion to/ afapiirn the debate wat rejected bya vote of 161 to 109.
A still further motion to adjourn the
house wns made, whereupon Mr. Gladstone suggested that if .theYote of credit wns agreed on the discussion oii the
subject could bo raised, on Thursday iu
committee" of supply! Sir Stafford
Northcote assented to this Suggestion
and the motion to adjourn tb^'house was
negatived. The vote of credit was
agreed to hy a vote of 130 to 20.

London, May lb—The Times this
morning cstuplaiiis of the reticence and
ambiguity of statement of tho government in regard to the Afghan question. It severely criticizes the action of
the government in recalling Sir Voter
Lumsden, as tho frontier question will
be all settlud beforo he cau possibly
arrive in London, and that, therefore,
any information lie may have will be
worthless so far ns the negotiations with
Rus-ia in London are concerned. The
Timet also says that tho change of purpose of the Ameer of Afghanistan has
placed a different phase on the matter,
aud that it is time to make him understand that he miiBt strongly garrison
Herat or at least allow the English to
superintend the fortification of the
place even if peace lie temporarily secured, it would be madness to waste
the time thus gained, which at beat can
be but small. The Standard iu an editorial says that the recall of Lumsden
completes the picture of English humility.

Perhaps the most artistic building on
the exhibition ground is the pavilion of
the Dominion Organ and Piano Company
of Bowmanville. It is moreover one of
tho most interesting to lovers of good
music as being the location of a magnificent collection of instruments. The
erection of this building, which cost
about $1,000, became necessary to meet
the requirements of the company, which
had heen cramped for room in the Main
Building, where it is impossible to judge
the merits of high-class instruments. The
enterprise displayed by the Company in
providing suitable quarters on the
grounds Tor their business has beeu rewarded. The large number of visitors
Who call, inspect, and purchase proves
beyond question that the public approve
the provision mode for their convenience
and comfort. Here a crowd may be
aeen listening to test performances on
first-class instruments made by leading
city and country musicians.
Bight well do- the Company deserve
the success which they have achieved.
Tlio present prosperous concern hud, like
nll great institutions, its day of small
things. It had its origin in Bowmanville
about fifteen years ago, the stock being
at that time largely held by parties uiiae-
quaiutcd with the business. About ten
years go John Wesley, the present secretary and treasurer; George Piggott, the
manager of the manufacturing department; and W. S. RubscII, superintendent of tho tuning department, bought
out the shareholders and assumed control. Since tbat date the business has
been booming. A further stimulus was
given to the concern by the admission of
a Detroit millionaire as a partuer. Piano-
making Was added to tho organ-manufacturing, and the establishment was increased, until it now occupies a leading
position among Canadian undertakings.
It turns out about SOO organs and 50
pianos per month. Theso are produced
by 250 hands, who receive in wages
about §15,000 por mouth. The whole
civilized world is the firm's market, and
they have branches in London and Man-
Chester, England; Hamburg, Germany;
Adelaide and Sydney, Australia; Auckland, New Zealand; and St. Petersburg,
Russia.
The instruments on exhibition in the
pavilion arc fair examples of the Com-
pnny's workmanship. An upright piano
of burr walnut ia a splendid instrument.
Of square pianos there are two kinds, n
Square aud a square grand. The former
is intended for standing agaiiiBt the side
wall of u room, and is convenient for
comparatively small apartments. The
square grand is finished on all sides, pro-
Bents a hand*une appearance, and is
suited for occupying a prominent position in drawing or music room. These
two instruments are of rosewood, with a
superfine polish, secured by hand rubbing with oil for hours. The touch is
quick nml easy, the tone brilliant and
powerful. In musical quality and appearance they are equal to tho best
American pianos.
The orgaiiB made by the Company nre
known almost everywhere, lhey are
manufactured in all styleB, and at nll
prices, ranging from $50 to $1,000. Many
sample organs are shown in the pavilion.
The largest organ whieh tho Compnny
will es hil.it. a double-hunk pedal, is at
preseut at the Dominion Exhibition,
Montreal, but is oxpected here at the
cud of the week. It is arranged to bo
blown by Turk's water motor, which has
been placed in positiou to await tho
arrival of the big Instrument. Tho or
guns run through all grades, from the
thousand dollar instrument down to tho
parlor favorite. The cases show wonderful variety. Many of these are of
rare beauty nnd skilful workmanship.
The cuso wliich secured for the Company
a prize at the Centennial Exhibition at
Philadelphia is still much admired, and
is largely manufactured. Cases for parlor organs ara chaste iu design and artistic in execution. The musicians who
tested the organs affirmed that for sweetness of tone and elasticity of touch they
are model instruments; whilo visitors
can themselves judge as to the beauty
and style of the cases.

A REMARKABLE STORY,
It took 'them n long time to get
home, and the old captain was sn worn
out that he could not rise frum his
chair again that evening. He and hia
wife Bat sadly, saying somothiug to
each other onco in half an hour. Thoy
could think of nothing but Catherino.
They kept up their broken, musing
discussion upon her nud Iier fato as the
slow summer evoning again crept silent-
lyby.
Bui Hester could not rest. She
satisfied hor mother easily thnt it was
right alio should go back to the Grange
and find out if sho could bo of use.
"It is what I wns going to suggest,
my dear," said Mrs. John. "If Edward Vernon is awny, as you say, mid
nobody with hor, sho must ho lonely:
and if there is any trouble besides—
though you hnvo nover rightly explained to me what it was. No, no, dear,
I don't moan to say it is your fault.
No doubt you lm re told me, and I
have not taken it up. To be suro,
Hester, you must go; mid though I
cannot bear to be without you, yet if
Catherino wants ymi, and she is iu
trouble, stay, 1 um sure she would do
as much for mo," said the simple soul,
without any cold breathings of duubt.
She went to tho gate with Hestor, nud
whon she camo back could not help
giying Iter nefghburs u little sketch of
the stale of atfaira, "My Hester hns
gone buck to tho t«range," she -aid,
"she will probably stay thoro all night,
Cathorino Vernon wrote nio the nicest
note to tell tno my child had been of
so muoh u*e to hor; that is always
gratifying to a mother.
"Of use!'1 cried the ladies both together. "Gracious goodness! whnt oan
be going to happen f Hoster of nse':i
cried one sister. ''And to Catherine!'1
said tho other. "Dear Cntherino, sho
tells you so to please you—when probably sho in thhikiug you tho groat«st
bore—"
"Sho likes something now to experiment upon," said Mr. Mildmay Vernon, with a snarl. Mrs. John wiu
much discouraged by this reception of
the news.    Sho said:
"You little know my child if yuu
think she will be experimented upon,"
holding her head high; but When sho
got in-dours she cried a little over their
ill-nature. If it hail beon one of thom
who had been chosen, how different
would have lieen their tone. Had the
brougham been sent express fur Miss
Matilda or Miss Martha, whnt airs
thoy would have given themselves!
And Mrs John know that she hnd
given herself uo airs; she had uot said
a word. But she could not be silent
about the promotion of her daughter.
Catherine was in her usual chair in
hor familiar room where sho had lived
for so many years. These walls had
witnossed most of tho pleasantnesses
and disappointments of her life; within them she Imd grown iuto tha.. amused speotaturof all the pranks uf human
creatures wliich it had pleased her lu
think was her characteristic attitude,
indulgent to everybody, seeing through
everybody. They had never seen her
in tht aspect which sho burn now,
beaten duwn under the struku of fate.
She wns too far goue eyeii In bis conscious of the extraordinary irony of
life which bad, made of the "tie only
creature to whom she hnd been consciously unjust, whom she had considered frum her childhood 113 nu
enemy, her solo miuistrant and sympathiser no it*. Hm site was not conscious even nf Hosters's presence, who,
overpowered by a grant awe of tho
Buffering which she shared, kept herself iu the background, recognizing,
ns su few watchers do, that she was
there for the sake of the sorrowful
woman whom she watched, ami not
at all for her own.
Catherine lay back in her chair, her
head thrown buck, ber eyelids half
closed She did not move, except nuw
and then to pot up her hand and dry
Hit* moisture which collected slowly
under hor eyelids, lt could not be
called tears. It was that extorted
dew of pain which comes when the
heart seems pressed and crushed in
some giant grasp. Sho was not thinking, any more than it is inevitable to
think ns long ns lifo remains. Sho
wns only suffering, nothing more. She
could not make nny head ugainst it.
Her last stronghold had fallen. This
it ir makes calamity so terrible to the
old. She could not get beyond it.
Thoro was nothing, nothing in her
path but this, blocking it across with
the darkness that would never bo dispersed. If he had died she would
havo known she could not remain long
behind him, nnd tho gloom would hnvo
been but a mist between; but ho had
not diod.
The thought of searching for him
through the world, of holding out succour to him when he camo to need, of
forgiving—that hist prerogative of lovo
—was scarcely in hor nature. It was
hers rather to feel that deep impossibility of re-beginning, tho misery and
pain of any struggle, to make the banc
seem noble, which is as truo a sentiment ns the other. She could not
hnvo dmiu it. To many women it is
tho highest form of self-abnegation, ns
it is the bitterest lot enn bo borne on
earth; but to Catherine it would not,
lmvo been possible. The blow to her
wns final. There was but ono thing -
to fight for Vomon'i to the last (wisp,
tu ward off disgrace nnd failure frum
tho name, to keep tho ground it had
occupied so long -against possibility,
uuainst hope; but nfter thnt no mure—
no more. She hnd horno horself bravely as long as any eyo was upon hor,
betraying nothing, and had snt, down
to table and tried to oat, with thnt
utter solf-mustcry which will sustain
lhe life it loathes with sedulous care
an long as it is necessary—talking to
Hester at intervals, giving Marshall
directions as if nothing had happened.
She had been tirst impatient, theu
satisfied, to find the girl there. Hor
presence wus a help in that needful
struggle.
Catherine wont up-stairs after dinner as usual. Nothing wns changed;
hut when she Imd attained to that
shelter, she could do no more. She
put back her head nnd closed her eyes,
nnd gave herself up to the endurance
of hor death-blow. At thu othor cud
of the room Hestor sat motionless.
A keen-sighted spectator would have
seen the outline of her figure in Iier
dark dross, but nothing uioru. She
watching, forgetting ber own share,
intent upon tlio other. Her mind wns
full of what tho old captain had Biiid,
"I'm killed, aire," Hostor watched
with a great owe, wondering if even
thus, iu the silence, without uny more
demonstration, a woman might die.
She thought in hor heart it would he
well; but boing so young, sho was
afraid. And the silence wus ao deep,
more deep than life could tolerate.
Bhe watched eagerly for that sole
movement, the lifting of Catherine's
hand lo dry away the moisture from
her oyes.
This stillness was broken suddenly
by a loud knocking at tho door—a continued volley of knocks, accompanied
by the sound of voices outside. Then
this sound surged inward, and hasty
steps wore heard rushing up-stairs.
Hester's heart leaped to her mouth.
It could not bo that he would como
back with such a noisu and outcry;
but yet u sort of frantic hopo took
possession of her as alio roso to her
feet. .Catherine hud raised horself
too, and snt with her eyes widely open
fixed upon tho door. They had not
long to wait. Tho door was flung open,
dashing against a cabinet which stood
near, with a superfluity of noise and
emphasis; r.ud, swooping away tho
silence beforo her, and evory possibility
of calm, Ellen Merridew burst into tho
room, her oyes inlhinied with crying,
her fair countenanco streaked with
red, her light locks standing up round
hor fnce. She was followed by her
husband, trying to hold hor back, and
by Marshall ill the rear, eager—under
a respectable semblance of attending
tho hasty visitors—to givo accuracy
to the' floating suspicious of tho servants' hull, and Gud out what it was
all nhout. Ellon rushed in, and gazed
about her wildly.
"Whore is hoT sho criod, "Oh,
Aunt Catherino, where is he. You are
hiding him. I said you would hide
hiin, whatever he did. Oh, is it nothing to you if hu goes and ruins people
that nover did him any harm—young
people like us who have nil our life before us, and a dear baby to be turned
out upon the world ? Oh, Aunt Catherino, if you have any heart ut nil,
whore is he, whore is ho1 I'll have
him to justice!11 cried Ellen. "I'll
not sit under it. I won't—not if he
should kill mo! I wnnt Edward.
Where is Edward 'I I shan't go out of
this lill you give him up to me. Hu
hns ruined us, ho has ruined us!" cried
the excited creature, bursting into a
transport of passionate tears.
There had boon a moment of bewildered struggle in Catherine's faco;
then sho roso up with wlmt scorned to
the excited new-comers her usual composure.
"What does all this mean?" she
said, in hor quiet voice.
Hester had shut tho door upon the
servant's curiosity; Ellon crying violently, and poor Algernon, endeavoring vainly to console her, stood between tho two, in the center of the
room. It was all that poor young
Merridew could do not to weep loo.
"I am suro you will forgive her,
Miss Vernon," ho said, in faltering
tones. "Wc aro nearly out of our
senses. Oh, don't cry, my dearest!
whatever they do they can't part us,
and I'll work for you nnd baby. I'll
wurk till I drop. Miss Vernon, if Edward's hero—sho doesn't mean any
harm. She is just oil' hor bond, poor
girl! and baby not a month old yet.
If you will only let us sou him, I'll
pledge my word—"
"Algy, hold your tonguo!" cried Ellen, amidst her subs, stamping her
foot. "Hold your tongue! I tell you.
She'll never, never givo liim up—never
givu him uii—never till she's forced, I
kimw that. She hns always liked that
fellow better than tho whole of us put
togothor. And we've ovory ouo kowtowed to him for her Bake. He's beon
the head of everything, though ho was
nothing but a poor— And as frightened of her as u doy, uud bated her all
the timo. Oh yes, Aunt Catherine,
you may believe me or not, but, whenever thore was n word about you, Edward was always the worst. Of course
wo nll had our reuiurka to mnke, [
don't say nny thing different! but ho
was always tho worst. And now he's
gone and led Algy to his ruin,'' sho
cried, with another wild outburst.
"We have lost every penny. Do you
henr me, Aunt Catherine—do you hear
me? We're ruined, with n dear baby
not u month old, and I thnt Imve never
gut up my strength. Oh yes, Algy -
ves, dear. I know you'll work till you
drop; but what good will that do to
ine to have yuu work yourself to death
and be left a widow at my age, with a
baby tu support? And. Aunt Catherine, it will nll bo vour fault," cried
Ellen. "Yes, it will be your fault.
If you hadn't made such a fuss about
liim, wiiu would have ever trusted him I
It was because of you I gave my consent. I said Aunt Catherine will
nevor let him come to harm. And
nnw here it has nll como to smash, and
ino and Algy nre ruined. Oh, how cnu
you have the heart! and a dear, innocent baby, without a word to say to
himself! And me nl my ago—aud poor
Algy that thought he wns making so
good n marriage when ho got one of
the Vernons—"
"Nelly, Nelly darling," cried the
poor young fellow, "I married you because I lovod yon, not because you
were one of the Vernons,"
"And as hu had n good right to
think so," said Ellen, pushing away
his caressing arm, "And thoy all
thought so — every one; and now
they've turned against me, and say
I'm extravagant, and that I've ruined
him. Oh! mo to havu ruined bim
tlmt thought I waa making a man of
him I Aunt Catherine, will you let
us all bo sacrificed, every one, only to
keep Edward from harm?"
Cntherino Vernon had sunk into her
chair, but there wns something of the
old look of the spectator tit a comedy
again upon her face. Tho evening
was beginning to fall, and they did
not seo tho almost ghastly color which
had replaced tlio wonderful complexion  of which everybody onco spoko.
"Mnke ber Bit down, Algernon, and
stop this raving," bIio said. "Wlmt
has happened/ I know nothing of it.
IE yon have any claims upon Vernon's
you will bo paid with the rest—If.wo
stand, HU tho last penny; if wo fall,
to the utmost that can bo paid. I cannot say nny more."
Thoy both snt down and gazed at
her with consternation on Iheir faces;
even Ellen's tears dried up ns by
magic After sho hnd stopped thoy
snt. Blaring ns if stupefied. Then
Ellen got up and threw herself al.
Catherine's feet with a cry of wild
dismay.
"Aunt Catherine! you don't menu to
sny that you ciuinot holp us, that you
cannot savo us? Oh, Aunt Catherino,
don't be angry with tno! I did not
mean to mnke you angry. I was alwaya silly, you know. You will help
us, yuu will save Algy, you will pay
the money, won't you?" Sho crept
closo to Catherine, aud took her hand
and kissed it, looking up pitcoiialy,
with tears streaming down hor fnce.
''You'll doit for ino, Aunt Catherine 1
Oh, though 1 ain silly I am fond of
my husband. Aud he's iio good; he's
never snid it wns my fault. And 1
always know ymi would put it right.
Aunt Catherino, ymi will put it right?"
Hor voice rose into a shrill, doBpair-
ingory; Ihon sho dropped down helpless, sobbing and monmng, but still
holding by Catherine's hand and hor
dross, whatever she could grasp at, in
a passion of incredulity and despair.

1'hlhlsls or Consumption ]
Chronic Alcoholism  1
Paralysis ,'t
Two of them came In lu a dying condition.
The Hospital has undergone a good denl
of repairing during tho year. The wator
pipes have been fixed; outhouses hnve
boon movflit, and ouo built for Ilie reception oft ho dond mil 11 burial, Whitewashing and papering has been dono, mnking
tlio place luok bright ami cheerful,
I have to ihanl* a number of friends of
tbo institution for conlrlbtillous of ple-
tucoH, L'.-xls, nnd rending mutter of every
desorlpl Inn and In largo muni titles, Also
for the supply of old washed linen whioh
Is parllcularlv useful. Also, I have to
thank Ihesiewuid, Mr,Churh)s Digby, for
the pains he has taken lu keeping the
wards clean und ooiiifoitablo; nnd, nlso,
for his kindness and al tent Ion to I ho sick.
Hefoi'i-closing iny reimrl I wish to suggest thnt If u fever wnrd, I. o.( to admit typhoid fever, could hi' opened,11 would add
vory materially lo tlm usefulness ofthe
Institution. I think that this might, bo
done without much expense by attaching
three or four rooms to tbo liultdlug for the
use of llic steward and his family nml using tbo wards up stulrs for (over ensos,
I nlso wish to bring beforo your notice
