An Important Decision.
At the suasion of the county
court held at Nauaiino last week,
Mr. Justice Gray gave a decision
on n point affecting a municipal regulation, which is of considerable
importance. Sain Hing (a Chinaman)  entered   an  action  against
Samuel GourIi. city, «'•"'•; -ra
j Humus U'uoimell collector, for the
recovery of three boxes of tea seized
by those officials for non-payment of
the road tax. A small pass-book,
containing tho names of persons
liable to pay road tax in tho municipality for the year 1887, was put
in the evidence: His Lordship animadverted strongly on the practice of
keeping a roll of taxpayers in a
small book like that, which was
evidently intended to be carried
about by the collector, and was very
liable to be lost. The roll should be
kept in a proper book, and left in
the offices of the corporation for public inspection, but as the law did
not say whether tho list should be
kept on a long or short piece of
piper or in a large or smnll book,
he would admit that as the list of
persons liable to pay tax. Mr. Mc-
Elmen raised the objection that the
list could not be admitted as the Bead
Tax Assessment Boll inasmuch as
it had not been revised and corrected by the municipal council and
certified by the proper officers, as
called for by sections 117 and 118 of
the municipality act, 1881. His
Lordship said that he considered the
road tux a fair and equitable tax,
and he would personally like to take
the same view of the matter as the
defence hod urged, and sustain the
corporation in the collection of tax,
but there was the law as passed by
the legislature, and he was bound
to carry out its provisions. To his
mind it was clear that sections 117'
and 118 called for an annual revision of ths assessment roll, including
the road tax, and as no such revision
had taken place, he could not como
to any other decision than a verdict
for the plaintiff. "He"considered the
city officers were not to blame in
the matter, it appeared that all the
corporations had drifted into the opinion that it was not necessary to
annually revise any roll except the
real and personal property roll. On
the broader principal ho considered
it absolutely necessary that each
taxpayer should have a public opportunity of seeing whether is name
was on the list or not, and also
have the right of objecting to being
rated if he considered he was not
legally rated. By the system that
appeared to be in vogue the collector took his memorandum book
and put down the name of every
person he could find, and asked for
the rood tax, and if ho refused to
produce the road tax receipt, seized
upon his goods. That was not
right for a man should have an opportunity of knowing whether he was
legally liable to be taxed, nnd if not
for appealing, and it would open the
door of endlessoonf usionand for gross
corruption. His Lordship then decided that the goods be returned to
the plaintiff, 816 damages to recover the expenses of the bond and the
taxed costs.—Times.

Thet'hlMrM Slave Trade.
The Ohina Mail, in a recent issue,
shows up a traffic which may interest those people in the United
States who know less about the
Mongolians than we of California.
There is a great foundling hospital in
Canton which collects cast-away
babies in large numbers—mostly
girls. After nursing these waifs
for a time the hospital sell them at
a good profit. Formerly they wero
sold to respectable natives who
either adopted them or made them
domestic slaves, the price varying
from $10 to $20 a piece. Latterly
it has been found that twice that
sum can be obtain from crimps, who
take them to Hongkong or elsewhere for exportation for the vilest
purpostrs, and now a flourishing
trade is driven in that way. There
are evil disposed and "low down"
persons in nil communities who will
stop at   nothing   which promises
frrolit, but for this open and de-
ibomto prostitution of a public institution it is necessary to look to
China for an instance. It is quite
in harmony with the average moral
and social development of the country, which some philanthropists
would risk transplanting in our soil.

TIIE LOBD MAYOR'S 8IIOW,
LoNUOK, Nov. 0—A heavy downpour
of rain rendered great assistance to the
police in preserving order to-day, und almost completely drowned the demonstration of idle workmen, which has becomo
a feature of the Lord Mayor's day exercises. Trafalgar Square was cleared at
an early hour with little difficulty, and

and altogether less imposing than any
one within the recollection of tlie oldest
attendants on such occasions. Speaking
at the mayor's banquet, Lord Salisbury
said the aspect of foreign affairs wns
growing more pacitic overy day. Ho es.
pcoially pointed to tho amicable and
satisfactory settlement of the Afghan
frontier, the New Hebrides and the Suez
Canal questions in confirmation of his
assertion, and aunounced that tho government was in receipt of advices to the
effect that Ayoub Khan had surrendered
himself to the Indian Government. Referring to the Canadian fisheries question
Lord Salisbury said he hoped that a
specrly adjustment of that ancient dispute might be accomplished. The task
of settling it had been undertaken with
great patriotism by one of the most eminent statesmen of the day and with the
almost unanimous good will of his countrymen, who hope that the result of his
work will prevent furture difficulties from
arising.
THE KMl'lillOR AND THS FKINOK.
London, Nov. SI.—-It is understood
that the emperor of Germany is really
dying. Tho prospect of a regency of
Prince William with Bismarck at his
elbow, is already canvassed. Very
littlo doubt is entertained hero of tho
cancerous naturo of the new growth in
tho crown prince's throat. Dr. Mackenzie U blamed for his early optimistic views of the case.
Berlin-, Nov, 9.—Drs. Schroeter
and Krnuso made a thorough examination of the crown prince's throat today, after which they consulted with
Dr. Mackenzie. All the three agree
that the patient's symptoms indicate
that his troublo had assumed a most
serious phase. Tho emperor has expressed his desire tlmt tho operation
.upoiiMtUe throat of the crown princo,
'if one is'to be mnde, shall be performed in Berlin.
London, Nov. 9.—The Standard's
correspondent at San Remo telographs
that the result of tho consultation of
the physicians does not indicate that
U,e  vuudtcun.-al-Mw-an.Nrn pnnoa M>
serious. Dr. Mackenzie's treatment
will be continued. The previous reports concerning the condition uf the'
patient, and the result of tho consultation, havo apparently come through
Vienna. Nothing that can be regarded
as official has yet been received.
me anarchists' appeal.
SriUNirHELir, 111., Nov. 9. —This
morning Capt. Black opeued the proceedings in presenting the petition of
clemency for the anarchists to Governor Oglesby by reading the petition
signed by Spies, Fielden and Parsons.
Oapt. Black said that for years previous the petitioners had openly and
publicly delivered the same addresses
and uttered the doctrines aud advocated the identical mode of agitation,
in language equally inflammatory to
that used on the night of tho Hay-
market riot, with the complete and
acquiesced knowledge of tho city au-
thoritioB. "Do 1 understand you to
say," interrupted the governor, "that
at no previous meeting of this kind
thero was any police interference, that
thiB was tho lirst time)" There was
evidently a deep impression made
upon hia excellency by Capt. Black's
reply, in which ho assured the governor that such rvns the case. Captain
Black continued the reading of the
petition, which concludes us follows:
"Therefore your petitinuors, knowing
your lovo of truth and justico, ask for
tho exercise of your prerogative of
pardon." This afternoon numerous
petitions for clemency wore presented.
Ilcprosoiitrittvcs of different trades
unions in nil parts of the country wore
present, nnd made earnest appeals to
tho governor for clcinoncy. S. Goin-
pers, president of the fedentted trades
of the U. S. nnd Oaliudn, wob then
called to address the governor! '*I am
peculiarly situated in risking yrrur excellency for clemency fur these inon,"
said Mr. Gompcrs, "because thoy and
myself hnve differed ull our lives. I
havo differed from them in theories,
principles, pmctiees and methods."
This evening tho wives and relatives
of tho condemned woro received by
tho governor. The sceno was one
whioh the governor will nover forget.
Mrs. Schawl) pleaded for tho life of
her husband. Sho was calm at lirst,
but approached nlmost to hysterios
before tho interview wus over. Miss
Kngel trior! to say n word for her obdurate father, but broke down and
could not givo uttcrniico to her feol-
iiigd. Mrs. Spies begged for inorcy in
words, but her pretty daughter had
probably the most offect upon tbe govornor by her tears and sobs. Mrs.
Fischer pleaded for hor busbriiiil. At
tlio olose of tho interview, Miss Krificl
signed a petition uu behalf of her
father. Elsie Trundel has signed one
for Lingg nnd scaled tho document
with her tears, which fell fast nnd hot
upon the paper ns she wroto hor name.
Mrs. Fisohor signed the paper on behalf of her husband, and Capt. Black
signod for Parsons, so that tho petitions aro boforo the governor in tho
namo of all tho condemnod men.
Chicago, Nov. 8.—Should tho governor declino to intercede in behalf of
the nnarohists in any way, thore will
remain two other avenues of possible
escape for them from the gallows, and
the certainty of a delay for the condemned. A few days of grace may be
obtained by habeas corpus proceedings,
and should that fail recourse i»y»
had to a commission de lunalico _mr-
endo. Dr. Josoph G. Kiernan, a farmer physicirn of the Cook County
hospital for the insane, Died a petition
in court to-day, charging the fact to be
thnt Louis Lingg, the anarchist bomb
maker, is insane.

This conversation is reported to hart
occurred between a traveler passing a
cornfield, when tht stalks wtrt ft*
aud yellow and stunted, and aboy
hoeing in the field: "You seam to
have a small crop of corn, my boy."
"Yes," was tho prompt response, " wt
nlwnys plant the small kind," "But
it is very yellow." " Oh, yes; father
prefers the yellow variety.1' "But, 1'
moiin, you won't have moro than half
a crop.'' "Oh, no, we don't eipeet
it; father and unelt always plant oil
shores." Evidently then wu nothing
tho the matter with that oom-fi.ld.

"MSI fails $ ritish Columbian
Iksnfej Eyc.Ui, Nov. le, lset.
—m
The Toronto Mail points out how
signally the predictions of sonic
Canadian politicians have failed
with respect to the development of
the Canadian northwest. In 1882
Sir John Macdonald estimated that
within eight years tlie Dominion
treasury would" receive $71,000,000
for the salo of lands; hut the Mail
thinks that if the sums spent in
railway construction, on the mounted police, in surveys, on Indians
and rebellions, were placed against
the receipts for lands it would bo
found that there was no margin of
profit at all This is very likely;
but it is not easy to see, after all,
how Canada could have declined to
develop the territory.
At a meeting of the Vancouver
oity council the other day a resolution was passed reccommending the
location of the Dominion government experimental farm at the Co-
-,-j.i.— -d;..**. „n the land known
as Blacks ranch. TThisrecouiiuc..-
dation ia in accordance with the
suggestion made by the Columbian
at the time Prof. Saunders visited
the province, For reasons made
known at the time it seemed to us
the location of the farm at the Coquitlam would lie very much preferable to any region more remote from the centres of trade and
travel. The importance of securing
the best spot for the farm is such
that we think the matter ought to
bt considered by the Westminster
board of trade, the city council, and
the fruit growers'association. Whatever aotion is taken should be taken
without delay, as negotiations may
loon have proceeded to such an extent as to prevent reconsideration,
Our local cotemporary is fond of
•peculating upon future events.
With wonderful detail he constructs
a combination of circumstances
suited to his whim, and sometimes
■eems to succeed in persuading himself that the product of his imagination is an accomplished fact instead of the mere eccentricities of
k mind disordered by keeping its
reflections always in one groove. In
his lut issue our cotemporary prints
an article on the "coming session,"
in which he pictures to himself the
wonderful things that may happen
"in the event of the present ministry being ousted," But is it worth
while to speculate in seriousness
where one finds the probabilities so
conspicuously advene] The last
general, election gave the government a majority of two to one, and
the by elections have not shown
an/ .ign el reaotiou. Wlien^tho
legislature was'shout to assemble at
iti firet session, our cotemporary
held am to himself the fond hope
that/the government would suffer
defeat; bnt the session closed with
aa large a majority as when it began.
During the recess nothing has
occurred, so far. as we are aware, to
justify the impression that there
has been any reac'.'on, and we are
inclined to think that when the
house meets, again the government
majority will be found undiminished. If our cotemporary finds
any comfort in the exercise of his
imagination, however, he may keep
right on building castles.
The governor of Alaska speaks
right at tht Alaska Commercial Co.,
whote monopoly of the seal fisheries has. been the cause of endless
embarrassment and loss to outside
sealers. In his report to Washington ths governor says this company
cleinc not only the Aleutian islands,
but the greater part of the mainland, ovar which it exercises undisputed away. It grasps for the entire trade of tht country, "By the
power of iti wealth," says the governor,, "it has driven away all competition and reduced the native
population to a condition of helpless
dependence, if not absolute slavery.
Unhampered by a healthy competition, it offers and compels acceptance by the natives, on pain of
starvation, of such beggarly prices
for thtir peltry that it manages invariably to keep them in its debt
and at iti mercy. Instances are
net i lacking where it has boycotted
and driven away from the islands
govornment. officers who, Intent
upon the honest, faithful discharge
of their duties, refused to do the
bidding of it* agents, Its paid
agent! and lobbyists are kept at the
national capital to oppose any nnd
every efibrt that may be made to
promote..tbe welfare of Alaska,
through .suoh legislation as will encourage immigration and tht enlistment of capital in tht development
of it* resources. Its every aim and
effort is directed to the blocking of
the wheels of progress so far as this
territory is concerned." It must be
admitted that the picture presented
by the governor is not very complimentary tither to the Alaska Commercial Company or the United
States. The governor's plain speaking may possibly have the effect of
so arousing public indignation ns to
prodiue a change, but experience
hal demonstrated that it is extremely difficult to dislodge a powerful
monopoly with tht wealth and re-
■oureti of the Alaska Commercial

Scrofula
Is one of the most fatal scourges which
afflict mankind. It is often inherited,
but may ho tho result of improper vaccination, men uriu! poison, uuckanliucsa,
aud various other causes. Chronic Sores*
Ulcers, Ahscosaes, Cancerous Humors,
and, in some cases, Emaciation aud Consumption, result from a scrofulous condition of the blood. This discoso can be
cured by tho use of Ayor's SarsapariUa.

The Raid Mads Upon Madame.
Dulong.
Ths Wnr/ In Which tlio Business Wm
Done — Two Tory Philanthropic Fliysl.
rlmis — lloir tlio Connt ae Yooc»ot Was
Caught with his Own Bait.
Mad. Dulong was an ancient lady of
great wealth, who lived on the Rue Ab-
batucci, Parle. She hail been an lielrau,
and had married a man who had accumulated large wealth by his own industry. He wail a plain, unostentalious
personage, and sojohg as he lived their
>i welling was rcuiaikalrlo for tho absence of all ornamentation. After his
death, however, Mud. Dulong gave froo
rein to her lesthetic tastes, and loaded
tho walls of her residence with paintings, many of thayrj by .the old artists
and of great value., Article! of vertu,
old coins and nuinbeflqsspriceless relics
adorned the mantels and cabinets.
Nevertheless there was rarely any one
but herself to enjoy a sight of her treasures. 1 f she heard of aiiy new curiosity
she was sure to be a bidder for it, provided it was any thing for which sho
could find a place in her rooms.
One day she received a letter informing her that Messieurs Saumon and
Pateaux had recently received; a lino
old painting by Leonardo de Vinci, discovered under remarkable circumstances in Borne, ourl inviting her to inspect
it at their art gallery on the Rue di fil-
voli any afternoon which she may have
at liberty, within a certain time.
This suited tho old lady's taste exactly ; and so, ordering,her carriage, sho
went that very afternoon to the number
indicated on tho Kue di Kivoli. Hie
was received with much demonstration
of respect by Monsieur Simmon, and the
picture was exhibited. Monsieur Simmon descrihed the work and expatiated
on its beauties with much eloquence.
Then he requested her to walk into his
private room and view somo admirably
sketches recently made by a irelelirated
liermiiu artist. She sat at a table Slid
the sketches wero shown to her ono by
one, the remarks of Monsieur Suumon
being artistic and very long.
nnvaniD.
Finally Mad. Dulong.expressod a wish
to return home, whereupon Monsieur
Saumon insisted that ehe would take a
glass o! Hungarian wine, which an artist of world-wide fame had just brought
from lta native country aud presented
to him. She accepted, the offer, and
was almost Immediately seised with
faintness, whioh gradually became in
sensibility. Then Monsieur Saumon
aaid to an attendant:
"Now, run as fast as you can, and
bring Vucque and Tirechappe, while I
go and humbug the coachman."
The attendant departed, and Monsieur Saumon went ont and informed
the coachman that Mad. Dulong had
been taken ill, and that he had sent ior
two eminent physicians to see what was
tho matter, adding that he had better
wait, us they would remove tbe old lady
to her house Just as soon as the physicians considered it proper to do ao.
Presently the attendant returned, followed by two well-dressed men, who
had tho appearance ot being staid, well-
to-do professional persons. Both looked
at Mail. Dnlonit, and Saumon said:
"What do you think oi tbo job,
Vacque 7"
"It is well done," was the reply to tho
shorter ot the two men. "Dont you
think so, Tirechappo ?"
"An excellent job," the other mail
answered: "it only remains Ior us to
carry out the rest of the programme."
"Don't yon think it is a little early ?"
aaked Saumon; "it is just beginning to
be dusk, and will soon be dark."
"By the time we reach the old lady's
house it will be dark enough ior our
purpose," replied Vacque; 'to let us
get into the coach." '
HAinra II AW B1QHT.
Saumon- want out and he and the
coachman arranged tne carriage ior the
old lady's reception ,
"Tbe two physicians will accompany
her home," said Saumon, "and then you
can summons her own physicians, if
necessary. Whoisherphystcian.bytho
way?"
"Dr. Beaudre, ol No. —, Rue da doll-
see," the coachman replied.
Saumon west inside and said to. his
attendant: "August/.take a cab, drive
as lost as yon can, go to the residence of
Dr. Beauslre. No. —, Rue du Colisee,
and inform bim that yon have been
sent by Monsieur de Verby, bi the
Boulevard Haiusraann—he is one of tbe
richest men in Paris-wbo desires bis
attendance Immediately. Take him
with you ta the cab. Before you reaoh
the Boulevart tell him that you have to
go to the house oi Monsieur de Veroy's
sister to inform her ef his sickness, and
direct the cabman to drive on to Monsieur de Veroy's—let me see 1 Where is
it? Ah, I remember, near the Avenue
l'ereirer. Thus yon will get Dr. Beau-
sire out ol the way. You, Vacque and
Tirechappe,,must take the old lady
round by. rse du Colisee, stop at Dr.
llcausire's, and then Iniorm the coachman thst the doctor hss gone to Versailles to attend an Important patient
and will not return until very late.
That will satisfy tbe coachman and tha
other domestics-and be an excuse Ior
your remaining with the old lady."
- at Tama moot. '
Then Mad. Dulong wu carried and
placed in hen/ carnage, Vacque and
Tirechappe Menu-their places beside
her, and tho~veuiclo was driven off.
Tho programme.was carried out as directed by, 8ailin0n, and on reaching
Mad. Dulong's abode, sho was carried
in. Her head domestic, an old woman
named Forgot,: wss-muoh distressed at
her mistress' condition, and suggested
thnt her own physician should be sent
for, lint was at once informed, by tho
suppoesd llortere thst 'hey had at once
token, her to Dr. Beausireii with a view
to secure bis services, but tbat Be was at
Versailles snd would not return until
late. .'
" Under these circumstances) you see,"
said Vacque, my friend, Dr: Basiy, and
myself—1 am Dr. Dourdon—will remain
and seo whatwercon dolor "yonr inls-
tress. Nowwtlis.get her upon her bod
or upon tbe>.couch In the breakfast
room, and bar-ready to .obey our instructions."
Mat*. Dulong was removed to her
apartment's and towed upon her couch,
only part of her clothing being removed.
Then Vacque and Tirechappe Imitated to
protection the way in which physicians
whisper about a patient and feel the
pulse and oumlue the eyes and so
forth, so that mot a suspicion entered
Mill. I'im nit's head that they were any
rtin-r tli in thev pretended to be, and
sir • wus lU'liiilited to think that accident
hnl (iiftwiuin tlte way two such admin-
abl- ueiitli-uua.
Mud. Dulong showed slgnsol reviving,
whereupon Mad. Fernet was dismissed
msamgammt-e-m-m-m-m
from the room for somo article, Then
Vacque poured several spoonfuls of
liquid into Mad. Dulong's mouth,
which she swallowed spasmodically, and
soon relapsed into absolute insensibility
and quietude.
"This is splendid medicine," Vaequo
sold to Tirechappe; "seo how speedily
it removes the symptoms."
ArntoAcnixa the eeai business.
Thinra went on thon until midnight,
when Vacque said he would go and seo
whether Dr. Beausire, with whom he
was well acquainted, hud returned. Ho
soon came back, saying that Dr. Ilcuu-
sire would be detained until morning,
as the cose he was on was very serious.
"However, Mad. Forgot." he said,'i
and my friend will remain until daylight, but you must furnish us with a
little supper.
A very excellent meal and some good
wine wero provided, and then Mad.
Forgot was told that slur had better eat
something and take n liltle rest in tm
easy chair, so as to bo handy if wanted.
After she had eoton, Vncquo insisted
that she should havo a glass of win
and she drank it. She then sat dow
in the easy choir ond dozed on Into as
complete a stoto of insensibility as her
mistress.
THE IlEAI, BUSINESS.
Then Vacque and Tirechappe began
the real business of tliu "night. Providing themselves with o light, they pass rl
through Madame Dulong's parlors, nml
cut from the frames the finest and most
valuable pictures which sho possessed.
Tliey carefully wrapped them up and
laid them aside. Then they selected a
quantity of old coins and small articles.
of great value and made a bundle of
them. Then they procured from Ma-
dome Dulong's apartments two valises,
into which they put their plnndor, and
departed.
The next morning, when Dr.Booustro
was summoned, he found Madame Dulong and Forgot suffering irom the effects of a powerful opiate. The necessary remedies were applied, and, before
noon, they were able to relate what had
occurred. Then a search revealed the
fact that tho pictures had beon cut
Irom their frames and articles of value
removed. Then the nature of tho desperate game, which bad been so success-
fully played wos disclosed.
. As soon: as tho polico wero notified of
the affair, detectives were put upon the
case. Of course, tlio rooms on tbo ituo
de Kivoli, occupied by the persons calling themselqcs Messieurs, Saumon and
Poteaux, wero found to be desert -d.
They had been rented from the tenant
of the building only a week before, aud
it would appear that the very night on
which the raid upon Madame Dulong's
residence was made, Simmon and Poteaux had removed anything of virluo
which they contained and decamp .'d.
Tho impression of the police wns that
tho marauders would get out of the
country as soon os they could, as it
would be almost Impossible to dispose
of their plunder in France.   One remarkable tact came to light, which induced the detectives to pause. Madame
Forgot remembered that one of tho
supposed physicians,  when Madame
Dulong was brought to tho house, suggested thot she be placed on the couch
in the breakfast-room.
How did ho know that thore was a
breakfast-room, so distinctly colled, or
that there was a couch in it.'
Did not that indicate n certain knowledge of the interior of tho dwelling und
its arrangements?
What man was there, answering in
any degree tlio description ol Vnrrtpto —
who was the person making the suggestion—who ever had been in any way
connected with the establishment of
Mad. Dulong?
Mad. Dulong, when appealed ti, was
silent for some time. At length she admitted lhat she had a nephew of dissipated habits, who had been tu'lirj in
her house since the deutli of her husband, and who somewhat resembled the
man who hod suggested tho bu-iikfast-
room and the couch.
COUNT DE VOXClEOT.
This bint was enough for tho detectives and they began to work upon it.
This man, whose name was Manclietts,
had disappeared from his usual haunts,
and none knew whither he hod gone.
He was traced, however, to Ostentl, ami
there lost sight ot. It was ascertained
that a well-dressed man, calling hluiseli
the Count De Vongept, accompanied by
a s.-rviiiit, bad sailed in tho steamer
irom Ostend to London. Detectivo
Grejioiro .followed this couple and trucked tliom to London. If theso wero tho
men he won tod, thoy had como to sell
the stolen goods.
Grcgoiro thought ho could match
thorn at their own game, so bo advertised under on assumed name, that he
would- give the highest prico for
valuable pictures and articles of vertu,
requesting parties having such to dispose of to coll at the rooms oi n well-
known picture dealer, on Regent sln-et.
Gregolre had previously --ot p. r nissioti
to use this dealer's niiiinr, nn I nlso to
remain in tho rooms as though he wero
an attendant.   _______
TOTYTAM THB BAIT.
Tho bolt was taken, and the Count
Do Vongoet, ob ho called himself, err
compauied by a friend, cnllu I tit the address on Regent street. Grcgoiro nt
onoe identified them from tbe description ho had received, and watohed the
proceedings wlthinterest. As the visi -
unto, were Frenchmen, Gregolre was
summoned to converse with thorn, ami
they speedily admitted that they hud
over a score of valuable pictures fnr
sale, and many other artideB of u choice
nature.
It was arranged that these goods
should bo brought to tho rooms the
next day for examination, and the
Count and his friend brought tliom iitr-
corrliiijily. Gregoiro nnrl his tno London ollic rs in waiting Bwept tliom nil,

Promoting Matrimony.
The Canadian Pacific Railway Company has just agreed to the proposal
from the Northwest for the promotion
of matrimony among the settlers.
Under the new plan the single man in
the west will purchase a matrimonial
ticket for Ontario, paying the usual
return fare. On presenting tho ticket
some weeks later, with a marriage certificate, at an Ontario station, he will
be entitled to a free ticket to his
Northwest home for his bride, This
is a humane arrangement, and is calculated to produce much happiness.
The only danger is that some excellent peoplo may think the one fare for
husband and wife should be general,
and, indeed, there is logic in such a
view, for has not the clergyman made

This is tho first shipment of fruit ovor

which, in timo, no doubt will a&sumo
enormous proportions. Mr. Winch
also sent us samples SOO lbs. of

that of Manitoba and the Northwest
Territories. In view of this fact tlio
preaent is a most opportune- time for
the thorough organization of the B. C.

Sadie Clark, charged with larceny

Patrick O'Brien, James Fraser and
Wm.Herrington, charged with larceny.
Chas. Stanley, sworn, said: I know
the prisoners; I was in a house kept
by Sadie Clark on the 8th; the prisoners were with me; I had $300 when 1
went to the house; Fraser and Her-
rington saw the money when I was
making change at tho Merchants' Exchange; at tho lattor place O'Brien
joined us; O'Brien was about to leave
the house; I aaked him to wait and
havo another drink and put my hand
into my pocket for somo money and
found it all gone; I think the other
men had left the house before this; I
then got excited and went down to the
Merchants' Exchange and saw Fraser
there treating some men; I struck him
immediately, for I thought ho had i he
money aB he was spending 50 cents and
all tho day previous he had no money;
he denied having stolen the money; I
also accused O'Brien of taking the
money, but lie denied it and went out
of the house: hn ammo back aRatn in a
little while; I took out my pocket
book ouce whilo in Sadie Clark's house
to pay for the drinks; the three men
woro present at the time. I bolieve I
had a quarrel with O'Brien but can't
remember; most of the money was in
now $10 bills, and there wero two $50
bills; the pocket book produced is tho
pocket book 1 had the monoy in.
To Mr. Cochrano—I don't known
whether 1 had nny drinks in the morning or not; drank considerable in the
afternoon; about 8 iu the evening went
to Sadie Clark's house, with Fraser,
Herrington and O'Brien. Had several drinks there which I paid for with
monoy from my pocket book.
Sadio Clark, sworn, said sho remember, Tuesday evening. The three
Srisoners and Stanley came to her
ouse about 8 o'clock; Fraser left in
about half au hour, about two hours
later Herrington and Stanley quarrelled and Stanley threw oil' Ins coat to
fight; She got Herrington to leave the
house, nnd O'Brien picked up Stanley's
coat and gave it tu him, leaving the
houso immediately, but returning in
about 20 minutes; Stanley accused him
of having stolen his money, which ho
denied and left the house. Tho prisoner then arrived and Stanley left
with him; saw Stanley onoe show his
pocket book in such a manner that the
other men could seo the money; all the
men woro pretty drunk.
Jus. Stephen, sworn, said I was
passing near Sadie Clark's house Tuesday evening; saw a man jump off the
sidewalk and back again;  as he  ap-
firoached 1 saw him'put something iu
ds pocket; afterwards I hoard of the
robbery and getting a light I found tho
pocket book in question under the
sidowalk where tho man had jumped
off. I recngnizo the prisoner O'Brien,
as tho man 1 paw; 1 afterwards opened
the pocket book in the presence of Mr.
Brewster, but no money was in it.
Constable Peurce testified to arresting the three prisoners and having
searched them in tho lock-up without
finding any money  on  them.
This closed the evidence. His
honor ' dismissed the charge against
Fraser, but held Herrington and
O'Brien to go beforo the grand jury.

James Rousseau, sworn, said: 1
keep a boot and shoe store on Columbia street and a branch store called the
City boot store; Dempster waa in
charge of the latter store and sold
goods on percentage for me; I supplied him with books and he was suit-
posed to keep n strict account of all
transactions} every day or two I went
nnd got what money might have been
taken; the books produced nre mine;
tho entry on July 1st shows $9 re
ceipts; I claim the sales wero $3.75
more than that. The cash memorandum produced is in the prisoner's writing; 1 found it with the other cash
memos; it shows $23.75 for tho day,
while the cash book shows §0. The
prisoner told me tho $13 had been
recoived from a man up the river; that
was a few days before I laid tho information; 1 found the slip in tho boot
store; on July 13th he acknowledges
tlie receipt of $11.50, which he really
received, $23.75 more than that by his
books; tho latter sum he never accounted for, nor has it been paid me;
on September 1st his cash sales were
$20,75 according to his cash book, and
by tho lodger only $23.50, no part of
which had anything to do with tho
former amount; the books show that
the prisoner only drew 820.20 between
May 20th and July 12th, so that tho
amount of $23.50 paid by Mr. Bonson iB not accounted for nor charged to
him; I picked up a letter in the shop
and got it read.
To Mr. Jenns—We had uo arrangement in writing: Dempster was to sell
on commission at iu or io per cent.;
this was to bo the arrangement until
June 30th, 1880, ufter which we were
to divide the profit; I might have said
to Mr. Bole that Dempster was to tako
half the profits nnd pay half tlie expenses. On July 14th we struck a
balance and thero was some money
coining to the defendant; I can't undertake to say the amount due, but it
was under $00; I forget where I found
the slip of paper; I naked him about
it and he acknowledged it was his
writing; I found the letter mentioned
before under the counter; I never examined the books for I don't understand them; I never noticed that some
days moro cash was entered in the
books than was taken in until Partridge took charge of the books, when
there seemed to be more cash entered
than the sales amounted to; Partridge
took charge of the books Sopt. 30th;
I don't remember searching Dempster's
J lockets for letters or tobacco: 1 swear
did not take the letter mentioned
out of his pocket; I would not be
surprised if the $13.75 marked ou the
Blip was for custom work; there was
no agreement to put the $23 75 to oil-
set the commission.
To Mr. Wilson—The value of the
stock at the time amounted to between
$2,500 aud $3,500; when it came to
my knowledge that Dempster wus advertising tho storo under his own unum
I didn't tako any action, as hu was
doing custom work besides; the letter
mentioned was from hiB Bister, who
thanked him for a pair of boots,
but complained that they were too
large; the latter also mentioned thnt
her father's boots were nearly worn
out,   [The case is still going on.]
